month from the City we can partially pay for a very respectable Armory more centrally located, and one that would be an inducement to the better class of young men to take an active partin this work. If you will take the trouble to inquire, you will find that many cities of the State thus assist their Military Companies to maintain their organization. I therefore ask an appropriation monthly from the City funds for the above amount to help defray the expense of a new Armory. Trusting you will give this matter the earest consideration that it is due, I await your decision. Very Respectfully, Owen E. Paxton Capt. Comd'g. D. 4th, Inf. T. N.G.

To the Honorable Mayor and City Commissioners of Fort Worth.

Gentlemen:--

In submitting to your honorable body the following request and suggestions we beg to assure you that we are prompted to do so by the best of motives, believing if the request is granted the city's best interest sill be subserved.

We request

1st.--That an ordinance be adopted which will provide for the handling of garbage and refuse of all kinds in a sanitary manner.

2d.--That all persons desiring to engage in the hauling of garbage of all or any kind be compelled to take out a license from the city and pay for same a reasonable sum.

3d.--That each person desiring to engage in the hauling of garbage be compelled to give to city the city a bond in sufficient amount to insure ample protection to the city.

4th.--That the ordinance provide a penalty for the violation of any of its provisions in such an amount as to insure strict compliance with every provision.

5th.--That some system of inspection be adopted by the city as still further protection.

We submit the above request and suggestions because we believe an ordinance can be so drawn as to give the city the protectionin a sanitary way and still permit the members of our organization and teamsters who are not members to continue in a buisiness many of them have been devoted for years; we are also prompted by a knowledge that such an ordinance will meet with the approval of the business men and other citizens who have for years been employing teamsters of Fort Worth.

Assuring your honorable body that there is no class of citizens who make have the welfare of Fort Worth more at hear than the Teamsters Union or who would do more to make its citizens more healthful or prosperous, we remain

Very respectfully

Jack Thompson Secy. Teamsters
