To the Honorable Mayor & City Council of Ft. Worth, Tex.

We, the undersigned citizens of Fort Worth and Tarrant County, do most earnestly petition your honorable body to not pass or accept the proposed Retail Market House proposition as submitted at the last meeting of the City Council for the following reasons:

First, because we believe there is no demand for a Retail Market House by the people of this city or county and that the citizens generally are well satisfied with the present mode and system of handling such products as would be handled by said Market House.

Second, because we believe the proposed location of said Market House is not such as would be accessible to the majority of the citizens of the city and county.

Third, because we believe that such a Market House would work a hardship on the Truck Grower, Farmer, and Wholesale and Retail Merchants who deal in fruits, vegetables, etc.

Fourth, because we believe that the proposition,as it now exists, is not explicit enough and is a dangerous one for the City and Citizens.

Fifth, because we believe that before the Council passes or accepts this proposition, it should be submitted to a vote of the people under the referendum.
