The Oolah club has become incorporated under the law of the State, the articles of incorporation having been filed this week with the Secretary of State and County Clerk. The club is composed of wide awake and progressive young men and is in a flourishing condition financially. Considerable dramatic, musical and literary talent has developed among the members of the organization and a number of entertainments will be given during the coming winter that will be sure of a liberal patronage. A convenient building on Second avenue has been leased for a club house, and it will be fitted up for the comfort of the members. The trustees elected for the ensuing year are: Frank Higgins, Chas. E. O’Brien, Jas. Moore, Edward Flinton, John Mullon and Timothy Quillinan.
