ri:m:w effort towards
securing sugait factory
JUMJE HOOK DECLARES THE
EKJHT.HOUJt LAW VOID
A corropondont suggests tliat the
C'htmibor 01 Commerce, tho nowapa
pers and the citizenship of North
Plutto divort their efforts toward se
curing a sugar factory for Lincoln
county, For his information and for
tho Information of others The Tribune
will state that for two or moro years
past offorls have been made by Iler
shey pooplo and North Plol.te pooplo
to secure a sugar factory for Lincoln
county, but eo far they havo made but
little progross. No sugar factory will
for a moinont entertain a proposition
that Jb not backed by -a guaranteo of
nt load, sovon thousand acres of boots,
and so far it has boon impossible to
secure that guarantee. Another phaso
of tho proposition scorns to bo a divi
sion of. territory between tho Great
Wostern nnd American companion, in
which one will not interfere with Uio
other. Lincoln county Is In the Grand
Island factory territory and from tills
territory that factory receives about
one -third of Its hoots, and Uiobo boots
uro nccossary to 'keep the factory run
ning. Undor these conditions tho
American company can scarcely bo
expected to build a now factory In a
,county rrom. wiucn tuo neois ihuhi oo
had to koep tho Grand Island factory
In operation tho required tlmo to make
It pay. If, as surmised, tho two com
panies havo a "gentleman's agree
ment" its to territory, ami as thoro
are only two companies operating In
the west. It looks as though It will
require somo real work to socuro a
llowovor, Tho Trlbuno la heartily In

Just now President Thoelocko of tho
Chamber of Commorco Is about to up

pose of conforrlng and uniting with
other towns In tho county and "push
ing the proposition to a "show down,"
tho llrsl movo toward which will bo a
thorough canvass for tho required
acreaKo. If thin acreago can bo se
cured, then tho proposition will bo
submitted to ono or both of tho com
panics. Tho Ilorshoy boot association
formed a year or so ago has n mom
borshlp of nbout eighty; porhapa
North Plntto had hotter form a like as
sociation an'd tho two unite nnd make
a concortod effort to secure tho aero
North Platto cares not at what point
In Uio county a factory may bo lo
cated; tho object Is to got tho furmorH
to grow a half million or moro tioiinrs
worth of boots each year wild get that
voJ.urao of money In circulation.
