I feel quite sure that if the council men will take the time and pains to look into our finances, in such manner as a business man would if dealing with his own affairs that the views of some of you at least on this question would be changed. If you will look I think you will see difficult ahead of you which if you love our city and its best interests you will not further headlessly rush into. While the majority of you may be willing to ignore the laws governing this questions yet I do not think some of you will be proud, when the day of review comes to face the record you are now making in this matter. If my appeal to you to respect the law and in making you contracts, and act in a business way in the city's business shall not prevail then it is for the citizensship to invoke the referendum or the power of the courts if they choose.

It is an extraordinary condition when citizens will present and represent and press and repress upon their city officials the acceptanceof a proposition when said citizens know that some feature of the obligation which they ask the officials to enter into are illegal; an and it is more extraordinarly when officials will willingly assent to accept a proposition knowing that there are features in it which are unlawful. Have we both of this conditions?

Respectfully, W. D. Harris Mayor

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.
