Pursuant to a rail a routing
meeting of the Imanl of trade was
held at the county judge's office
last night, with President Wind
ham in the chair. The minutes of
the lust meeting' were read and ap
President Windham said that he
had confidence in the town: that he
had lived here during his manhood
and that if he hail not had confi
dence in the town he would not had
lived here as long as he has. Jle
also said that he knows of thirty
thousand manufacturing establish
ments that wanted a place to re-locate.
He also urged the business
men of the town to turn out and at
tend the board of trade meetings
and not to move into the back end
of their stores for fear they would
have to pay out a little money.
Continuing he said that what Platts
mouth wanted was manufacturing
establishments that would bring
people here, Jt will not take very
much money but it will take a good
deal of work.
Postmaster Streight said that dur
ing the last month he sold $300

was his opinion that ere longPlatts

made some timely remarks.
Ed Oliver on behalf of the firm of
Oliver & Ramage, offered to donate
an acre of ground to the man that
would locate a flouring mill in this
city, with a capacity of seventy-five
barrels per day. The ground is lo

plenty of water and would be a very
desirable place for such a plant.
A motion was made that the pres
ident appoint a committee of three
to see that the business men would
attend the next meeting, even if
they had to lock their stores. The
president appointed A. 11. Knotts,
C W. Sherman and G. F. S. liurton
as such committee.

graceful dancer and an excellent
singer. In the character song,
"Say, Won t ou Come Out and

between herself and Jarbeau and
the difference was all in her favor.
She won several recalls ana gra

to a fame equal to that of Minnie

bandings next October. It is be
lieved certain that every member
of the president's cabinet and of the
supreme court, and nearly every
senator, congressman and gov
