LUKE BUILDING FOR PUBLIC ENTER
TAINNENT TO BE ERECTED
Slock Subscribed, Meeting Held, Organ!
zatlon Had, Coamlttees Appointed
Work Will Begin Shortly
On Wednesday evening a
meeting of tbe subscribers to
tbe fund for tbe purpose of
building a bouse for public gath-
erings and entertainments was
held in the K. P. reception
rooms and proceedings bad wbicb
insure to Caldwell a building
tbat, when completed, will be a
creditable and substantial addi-
tion to tbe town.
There has been a good deal
of agitation regarding tbe erec-
tion of a structure of tbis sort,
and some weeks ago those wbo
have been most active in tbe
matter were approached by W.
S. Barnett, wbo contemplated
erecting a building adjoining
tbe K. P. hall, with a proposi-
tion that he will furnish tbe lot
and build a structure approxi-
mating 47x'K> up to the second
floor and turn it over to an or-
ganization to finish above that
into an auditorium or opera
bouse, to which be will give an
air title when completed. No*
only did this seem a liberal
proposition but a highly advan-
tageous one as well, saving as it
will the expense of a valúale lot,
tbe work of laying foundation,
and an entire wall the full length
of the building, and Mr. Barnett
was asked to wait a abort time
in wbicb tbe matter might be
canvassed. Dr. A. H. Foster,
wbo, by the way, would make as
successful a politician as be ia a
dentiat, went to work and in a
few days bad a little aometbiag
over $4,000 subscribed in hun>
dred dollar chunks, and tbe
meeting Wednesday night was
to formulate some sort of an or-
ganization and outline plana of
At 8 o'clock tbe meeting,
which was well attended, was
callcd to order by Judge R. J.
Alexander, and Dr. A. H. Foster
elccted temporary chairman; J.
W, Jenkins, secretary. It was
moved and carried tllat the or-
ganization be made permanent,
and alter some discussion pro
and con, it was decided by a
unanimous vote that tbe associa-
tion be named the Citv Audito-
rium Company. Stock will be
placed at $25 per share, and 25
per cent of the amount sub-
scribed is to be collected atoncc;
25 per cent when the building
is started and the remaining 50
per cent pavable on demand
after reasonable progress has
been made. A board of five
directors composed of A. II.
Foster, F. A. King, R. J. Alex-
ander, Thos. Kraitchar, jr., and
J. F. Cobb was elected, and a
building committee, or rather, a
committee to secure plans and
estimates for the building was
elcctcd. This latter committee
is composed of W. B. Silliman,
J. K. Porter, J. R. Hartgravcs,
C. C. Nelms and J. A. (Jray and
after securing the required data
they will report to the directors
and be discharged, after which
bids will be asked. It is a safe
assertion that inside of sixty
days the work on the building
will be well underway.

For the Orphans
As was mentioned some time
ago, tbe Sunday School classes
of the Baptist cburcb made an
offering for the Buckn^r Or-
phans' Home at Dallas, the
amount contributed being $28.
On last Sunday there was a col-
lection taken op at tbe regular
morning service* of tbe Baptist
church and tbe sua of $10C was
realized for tbe same purpose,
making* $128 in all raised by this
cburcb for that orphanage. Be-
sides tbis, a private subscription
list circulated among tbe mem*
bers which swelled tbe total up
to something like $150 and it was
all forwarded to tbe orphans at
Dallas. This is a nice gift and
speaks well for tbe Caldwell
Subscribe for tbe ÑcwB-CuBonicLB.
