Retail Merchants Organize
At a meeting of the Caddo Retailers last Thursday evening a permanent organization was effected with J. C. Hogan President, Wm. Malone Vice President, Lake Brewer Treasurer, and John L. Boland Secretary.Associations of this nature are being daily organized throughout Oklahoma.
Caddo merchants are alert to favor conditions that will work for the advancement of Caddo and the country tributary to it, and realized that organization furnished the only channel through which results could be obtained. Particular mention was brought to bear upon three things: the betterment of Caddo as a trading point, to offer encouragement to all legitimate enterprises, to correct the evils of the present credit system.
Those holding membership are: J. L. Campbell; W. F. Dodd; J. O. Hartzog; Wm. Malone; Drs. Allen and McGregor; The Bass Co.; Smith, Moore, Williams Co.; L. J. Schwartz; Lake Brewer; H. G. Huffman; J. C. Hogan; Oscar Driver; Walters & Williams.
