Various City and County Organizations Unanimous In Endorsing Location Here.

The conference between representatives of the City Improvement Committee, the Farmers' Federation of Allegany County and the Association of Retail Merchants and Franklin H. Ankeney, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, and William R. Moore, traffic manager, resulted in a unanimous agreement as to the need of a city market in Cumberland and the benefits to be derived therefrom.

R. F. McHenry, County farm agent, representing the farmers, declared that the proposed market should be financed entirely by the City of Cumberland. He stated that the farmers would not consider financing such a market themselves, but, should the proposition be carried through by the city, it would be patronized by them and result in more produce being grown in the vicinity.

There was much discussion on the matter, but at no time was a voice raised against the principle of the proposition. As a final action, the following resolution was adopted to be presented to the city council next Monday, January 30:

"The consensus of opinion of this meeting is that the City of Cumberland should have a market. Therefore, the chairman is authorized to appoint a committee to present the matter to the Mayor and City Council at their meeting next Monday, January 30.”

The matter was then turned over to the city improvement committee, who will in turn present it to the City Council for its consideration. The personnel of the improvement committee is made up as follows:
D. I. Miller, chairman; A. L. Rose, J. K. Goodhand, G. W Young, W. R. Moore, F. H. Ankeney and Frank B. Jenvey.
In addition to the above those present at yesterday's meeting were: R. F. McHenry, county farm agent; Rhea Morgan, county home demonstrating agent; Albert O'Neal, president of the Farmers' Federation of Allegany county; Ira McKenzie, Pinto, Md.; A. A. Lowery, Pleasant Grove, Md., and William R. Moore, traffic manager, Cumberland Chamber of Commerce.
