"The meeting of citizens was
called by the executive committee
of the board of trade which had for
some time under advisement a
proposition of the firm of John N.
Steams & Sous to locate in this
city their proposed dye works for
dyeing all the silk goods produced
in their own mills and by mills
owned by other firms. The propo
sition had been investigated from
every standpoint, by experts em
ployed for the purpose, and by the
best business men of the city, and
the proposed works had been found
a very desirable investment. The
only condition attached to Williams
port's acquisition of the enterprise
was that its citizens take $140,000
first mortgage bonds of a proposed
company, this amount representing

off. There is no question about
the future of this island and this

Only the direst calamity can tem

from these ashes of indifference and
forge ahead. Hotels, railroads,
deep water freight and passenger
transportation lines, paper mills
and diversified industries alone will
build it out of its own recognition.
