too frequent, causing much trouble at

Oklahoma! Paper Hammers Hot
Sperks From th. Anvil Do
Any of 'Cm Strike You?
Some hot sparks are struck right off
the unvll by the Morning I'henlx of
Muskogee, Okla.. for the benefit of the
home trade movement. The Tboenlx.
w hich knows the value of a good news
paper to ii town, is n-weiiryof seeing
local concerns send to other and larger
cities for Job printing work when Mus
kogee's two biggest Industries are
priming olliccs. Nearly every town In
the country bus mote or less reason to
compli'm of a simllur tendency upon
the part of some of thotte who exjiect
the local papers to boom the burg from
year to year und then buy their print
ing from some establishment else
where. What the 'Phoenix says, or
most of It at any rate. Is applicable to
almost any town In America. The
Phoenix heads Its editorial remarks
"In Its battle for the town or city In
which It Is published every newspaper
worthy of the name makes a bobby of
inslstiug that home Industries lie pat
ronized, and Issue after Issue luliors for
uu additional tlu bucket brigade and
gives more of Its space to the public
than It sells to Its ndvertlsers. In sea
son and out It works for new Indus
tries and gives old and comfort in
every way possible to those establish
ments that hnve the weekly pay roll to
meet, and Its slogan of 'Patronize
Home Industries' is never silent
"True of publishers in other places,
this is also true of those operating
printing establishments In Muskogee,
and In view of the existing conditions
here the Phoenix desires to make a
few brief statements and then ask sev
eral pertinent questions. Next to the
government and railroad pay rolls, two
of the printing plants of this city are
the largest establishments In the city.
These establishments are the best ad
vertising assets the city has or ever
bad and bring more people to Musko
gee than all other Influences combined
These establishments pay large taxes
Into the city treasury and annually are
the cause of more wealth being added
to the city than any other industries
operated here. The working forces of
these plants are union men linotype
oierators, printers, stereotypers and
pressmen and are paid the union scale
and work union hours. Most of the
employees have their homes here, and
nil of them spend their weekly wage
lu Muskogee. So much for the few
statements. Now a question or two.
"Why do the city officials, the Judl
clal ductals and the officials of the In
terlor deportment, all citizens of Mus
kogee, buy from traveling men repre
sentlng Kansas City. St. Louis. Cal
reston and Dallas houses printers' sup
piles that could be purchased of th
local printing establishments?
"Why do the banks of Muskogee
send away from home for their sta
tlonery, all of which could be supplied
by or through the local firms at the
same price they now pay'
"Why will elective county and city
officials pat the local labor unions on
the hack and theu send their orders
for olllce supplies to a Dallas tlnn
working only women and children ami
"Why will the men who most of all
depend upon local support for business,
the I sinkers, the lawyers mid the elec
tive olllclals, persist in Ignoring the hi
cal establishments and buying their
supplies imt of town and continue to
howl obout patronizing home Indus
"How many local olllclals ore elected
by out of town votes?
"I low long would the seven or eight
batiks of Muskogee continue lu busi
ness If that business was confined to
their out of town customers?
"How much taxes are pnld In Mus
kogee by the Dorsey Printing compa
ny of Dallas, or (ieorge l. Ilarnard of
St, Louis, or Clark & Courts of Calves
"What have they ever done for this
city that entitles them to a line of busi
ness such as would add twenty or thlr
ty men to the city pay rolls If given to
the prlnterles of this city?
"Why would It not U a good Idea for
some of the Muskogee men who send
their money away from home for of
Bee supplies to get a new motto and
hang It over their desks, rending, 'Pat
ronlze Home Industries." and the r.ext
time the out of town drummer comes
along point to the motto and tell him
there Is nothing doing? Either this
should le done or they should not pose
as town boosters or critics of the anvil
Hint on Laying Out a Suburb.
A striking Instance of how the beau
ties of nature may te preserved In the
laving out of n suburb Is shown In the
western part of Oak Tark In the little
street known as Elizabeth court. When
that section of Chicago first was built
up it contained many tine oak trees,
two of which st,.,Hl directly In the line
of the ttioroiiL-lifare as It was project
ed from North Home avenue to North
Kenllworth The old poem "Woodman.
Spare That Trc," appealed to the own
era of the tract, stul consequently the
oaks were left standing In the middle
of the street, the driveways winding
about their basts In the best manner
feasible, since that day the trees bare
rown sod flourished and lend a uul j te
attraction to the neighborhood.
