a large plant in this city,
the previous trip to this citv
her of our leading business men made
a careful investigation into Mr.
Roberts' standing and they found
then that he was a man who had
made good everywhere he had been
and that his undertaking the erec
tion of a plant here meant its com
plete and assured success. The ex
act terms of his proposition to the
city has not been made public.
He is a man who has had a long
range of experience in the canning
business and knows a good location
when he sees it. He: realizes that
there is a vast field around this city
which the canners have left prac
tically untouched. This has re
sulted in a loss, not alone to the city,
but to the farmers and truck gard-
ners ot tlie vicinity as a good mar
ket has been allowed to go to waste.
What he now proposes means to
make a market for every kind of

an Income of $7." per acre, far more
than corn will ever bring.
What Mr. Roberts proposes to do
is to build a combination plant and
work it the year round. II will lake
a capitalization of $r0.000 lo do
this and it means a big plan). It
will employ a hundred and fifty peo
ple during the season and even dur
ing the winter time there will !i
no less than twenty employes at
work. It can readily be seen that
this means a big help to the city.
Every dollar spent in this plan:
means another dollar for the city.

and there is no reason why it should - Let the people? of the city get to

be produced here far cheaper than in
the east. Cabbage and its attendant
canned article, sauer kraut, is right

thing is true of virtually every can

work will accomplish wonders and
there is now a chance to get. one.
