A Janesville Wisconsin Beet Sugar Company Seeks
a Location Here
And is Very Favorably Impressed With Our Soil Climate Location
and Conditions Generally
Henry Cordes representing Theodore Hapke of Janesville
Wisconsin spent Monday and Tuesday of this week in McCook and
vicinity looking over the ground and the attractions of this city for
the location of a beet sugar factory Mr Cordes investigated the
situation here quite carefully driving over the country in this vicinity
and consulting with farmers and business men concerning the propo
sition The capitalists Mr Cordes represents propose to build a
factory of 6oo tons per day capacity This would handle the pro
duct of 5000 acres of land The company requires the donation of
a site for the factory for its warehouses yards trackage etc perhaps
forty acres and a guarantee of the planting of 5000 acres to sugar
beets annually for a period of five years Mr Cordes holds out
quite fair inducements to the farmers in the line of price treatment
conditions payments etc and created a favorable impression upon
those who met and conversed with him on the subject
After covering some territory west of here on business connected
with the beet sugar industry Mr Cordes will return to Wisconsin
and report to his employers and a favorable report may be reason
ably expected and McCook may expect to have a beet sugar factory
located here iivtime to handle next years crop if she can meet the
conditions above stated a free location and 5000 acres of beets
for five years
McCook now seems tobe reasonably certain of having a definite
proposition to consider Let our businessmen and beet farmers grasp
the situation energetically and intelligently

Is Getting on Nicely Now
Justin A Wilcox who was painfully
injured by falling down the rear stairway
in the Spearman building lastMonday

less pain He mistook the stairway for
that leading upstairs into the AOUW

in the darkness fell down the entire way
cutting his scalp and injuring his hand
badly He has been in great pain until

serious injury

An Auditorium For a Site
The Tribune is informed that there
are two citizens in McCook who will
put 10000 into an auditorium or opera
house if the people of McCook will
donate them a site with 75 feet frontage
on Main avenue This seems to be too
good news for credence but we have it
on very good authority and will give the
names in due time Now let the people
of this city see that they have the site
An opera house to jcost 810000 is abso
lutely assured

A Rather Frosty Affair
The special concert in the Baptist
church Saturday night was a rather
frosty affair for all parties concerned
In the first place the young men com
posing the Euphonium Male Quartette
are hardly up to snuff musically speak
ing They fell far short of expectations
Hence the concert was not a success
artistically considered The weather
was not propitious and other matters
interfered with the attendance Hence
the financial aspect of the concert was
not such as to remind those promoting
the same of Cassie Chadwicks exploits
in the east
Engineer Jack Henderson Injured
San Bernardino Cal Dec 7 On the
Salt Lake railroad in the desert 100
miles north of Dagget a train of water
tank cars broke loose at the top of a
heavy grade rushed down the hill at a
tremendous speed for about ten miles
and crashed into a construction train
Brakeman John Bryant of the water train
was killed and Jack Henderson and Fire
man Miller of the construction train
were painfully injured Several others
were hurt
