HISTORY OF DALLAS COUNT' .'
DALLAS BOARD OF TRADE.
This institution has doubtless done more
in presenting to the public the superior advantages
and inducements offered by the
city of Dallas and Dallas county than perhaps
any enterprise that has ever been established
by the citizens of the city.
The membership is composed of leading
merchants, bankers, manufacturers, capitalists,
etc., thereby forming one of the most
substantial and effective agencies conceivable
for the development of the city's best interests.
It stands ready at all times to consider
all propositions submitted for the good
of the city, to discuss vital issues of public
interest, and to answer all questions concerning
Dallas and this section of the State involving
trade, industries, traffic, etc., etc.
The following are the present officers:
Henry Exall, president; Paul Furst, treasurer;
George M. Dilley, first vice-president; A.
Hausl, second vice-president. Directors,
Henry Exall, W. G. Scarff, C. W. Guild, S.
