A vinegar nnd plcklo factory IH to
be t'HtnbllHhcd In Norfolk. The plan
was brought before tliu illroctorH of
the Commorclnl chili nt th ( > lr 8 o'clock
mooting and received the I'tidor.somont
of the ( HroclorH IIH a good hualnoss
proposition and ono which ought to
initUo a good Invest mont for stockhold
ers. It In doslri'd to Hell $10,000 worth
of stock before starting the plant. 0.
I ) . Slmms , u coinmurcliil trnvolor , unil
.George KvniiH. retired , both resident ! )
of Norfolk , are behind the plan. The
illroctorH took occasion to roeolvo n
report on the proposed bridge over
the "Norfolk avenue waterway , " an
, the cluh haH dociilod to muno Corpora
tion gulch , and to commend the conn-
, ty commissioners for their good work.

The Vinegar Plant.
Messrs. Slmms and Evans have
drawn up articles of Incorporation out
lining their plans. Mr. Slmms hat )
Bold pickles and vinegar In this terri
tory , lie says that a plant hero would
ho highly prolUablo to the company
and that It can bo bettor operated hero
than In Omaha , because the raw ma
terial can bo more easily secured hero
and at lower cost than In a city.
The directors , having Investigated
the proposition , gave It as their opin
ion , otllclally , that the stock offered
will make a prolUablo Investment.
It was argued that the vinegar and
pickling plant would give work to n
few persons In the factory , but that
Us greatest benetlt would coiuo In cre
ating a ready market In Norfolk for
Hurroundlng territory with regard to
cucumbers , onions , cabbages , caull-
llowor , tomatoes , grain , apples , etc.
This would give employment to many
persons on the farms , the number beIng -
Ing estimated at 100 by Mr. Slmms.
Mr. Slmms said that the readiness
of merchants In this whole territory
to buy Norfolk products In other lines
had convinced him that the Institu
tion hero could he made a success.
Ilent hero would bo cheaper , ho ar
gued , than In a city. The company Is
to bo capitalized at $25,000 nnd will
not start operations until $10,000 cash
has been raised.
Bridge For Waterway.
Mr. Carney reported that ho had
looked at the plant for n waterway
bridge In the west end with a 20-foot
Iron roadway span , two 5-foot Iron
walk spans and all so constructed that
concrete might bo used. The Commer
cial club directors announced that they
found the plans as drawn up by the
county commissioners to bo econom
ical and sightly and that , when trees
are planted , with shrubbery , as de
signed , the waterway would bo n
thing of beauty and joy forever.
