Proposition to Establish Plant
COMMERCIAL CLUB LISTENS.
Ex-Secretary of State Porter ami J. A.
Boyco Discuss the Feasibility of
ErcctlnR a Factory Would Use Raw
From Tliurmln j ' Tmlr f
Hx-Sccretary of State NY. V. Porter of
Central City and , T. A. lloyco of Kearney -
noy appeared before the special mooting
of the Oonunuroiiil club hwt evening
and mndo a proposition looking to the
establishment of un tip to itato canning
fnotory in this olty. They roproBout the
Hastings InduHtrinl company of Chicago
cage , said to bo the only linn that erects
mill equips canning factories west of
the MiHslsHlppi rlvur.
Thn spcolnl mooting of the club was
not so well attended an It Bhould luxvo
boon , owing to the Into hour when no
tice of the meeting was given when
many of the inomborH hiul otherarrange
ments for the evening. After Hiitoning
to the proposition of Messrs. 1'prtor anil
Boyco it was decided to ndjouru until
Friday evening , when it IB hoped there
will bo n larger attendance.

that will malco it capable of turning out
40,000 cans of corn per day will bo in
the neighborhood of $13,500. , Snob a
factory would use an immense amount
of product of the Held and garden , and
ns corn and tomatoes to bo Hucconsfully
canned must bo packed the day they are
picked , it would take the ruw material
from n strictly local Hold , it being im
practical to haul more than five or six
miles to a canning factory.
Such a plant would require about two
acres of livnd to accommodate the build
ings and necessary grounds for facilitat
ing the business. It would consist of a
main building , 83 by 80 foot , two stories
high , with five largo additions. Its ca
pacity would bo 40,000 cans of corn per
day , 80,000 cans of tomatoes and 20,000
cans of pumpkins. To produuo such an
amount of canned goodtt , much of the
work must necessarily bo done by ma
chinery , and yet the factory would give
employment to from 125 to I7. people
during DO or 100 days , when the season
is on. Nearly all of this is unskilled
labor , men , women , boys and girls , and
they earn on an average from 75 cents
to $1 00 per day , all work being done by
the piece. Such a factory takes the
product from 800 to 1,000 acres of land ,
which , while it requires intensive culti
vation , yields immense profits to the
According to the statements of the
gentlemen who presented the matter to
tbo Commercial club , there could bo no
doubt as to the profits of snob a concern ,
provided the necessary acreage of corn ,
tomatoes , etc. , could bo soourod.i The
goods are all sold for future delivery , so
that the management of the factory
would know just what was being done
at all times. Canned goods are being
contracted for oven now for delivery
next fall. Only a small margin of profit
is to bo secured on each can of goods ,
but the volume of business which the
factory is capable of doing makes such a
plant very profitable.
Au experienced processor is required
to superintend the work of canning ,
and these gentlemen Etato thot such a
man is ready to take $1,000 stock in a
factory if located.hero. Tl o remainder
of tbo money must bo raised in Norfolk
Such factories as this are what are
needed in Norfolk , and if upon investi
gation this plan proves feasible nothing
could bo more beneficial to this city and
community. Plants that will UBO raw
material produced by the fields of this
section are largely what must bo depended -
ponded upon to build up the city. It is
true canning factories established 13 or
15 years ago in many cases proved un
successful , but too much had to bo de
pended upon hand work under the old
processes. The factories which are now
being installed handle the crop largely
by machinery , and the economy over
hand work makes the difference between
profit and loss. Nebraska City has ouo
of tbo leading canning factories in the
country which has been operated several -
oral years very successfully.
There should be a good attendance at
the special meeting of the Commercial
club tomorrow evening , when the whole
matter will bo explained in detail by
Messrs. Porter and Boyco.

Copies of the paper were BOOH soon after

these show that a great improvement
has boon made by the publishers. The
paper now appears to bo an up-to-date
American , publication with good and
now typo faces and news and editorial
columns that bespeak ouorgctio news

appeals to the publisher is the excellent
advertising patronage shown. There
are columns and columns of this and
good diplays are made. The indications
are that not only the Americans , but all

appreciate the use of printer's ink in
