On Tuesday the last of the money necessary to secure the site on N. Fourth ave. opposite the court house, was obtained by the directors and members of the Y. M. C. A., ahd on Wednesday the papers were made out and a legal transfer of the property was made. The lot has a frontage of 88 feet on N. Fourth ave., and runs back 120 feet to the alley. It takes in the space from Geo. W. Sweet's feed store on the north and includes one-half of the old hotel building now occupied by Wm. Wenger's repair shop. It is a good site and it would have been hard for the association to have found a better or more central one. The next thing the association wants to do is to build a gymnasium, but before it does that an additional $1,800 will have to be raised. When built the gymnasium will be a permanent one constructed on plans that will be a part of the general plan of the whole Y. M. C. A. building when it shall be finished. The lease of the present quarters of the association expires Jan. 1, 1898, and the question with the boys now is "Can the new gymnasium be ready for occupation by that time."
