Edgefield's Imperative Need
A Modern Hotel
Mass Meeting of Citizens Called
Very soon Edgefield wiil have NO HOTEL. Visitors and traveling men will have NO PLACE to stop.
Think of it ! Such a condition is ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE and should arouse the public spirit and town
pride of our people as nothing else has ever done before.
Something MUST BE DONE at once. About $32,000 in bona fide cash subscriptions have been secured,
but the Board of Directors cannot enter into a contract for the construction of the proposed Dixie Highway
Hotel on the beautiful lot facing the public square until a larger sum is assured. Bids will be opened Satur
day, November 15, but, as urgent as is the need for providing hotel accommodations as early as possible, no
contract can be let until at least the sum of $50,000 has been subscribed.
A mass meeting of the citizens of Edgefield and vicinity will be held in the Court House Friday afternoon
at 4:00 o'clock for the purpose of securing additional funds. Let everybody, ladies and gentlemen, attend!
Let every place of business be closed at that hour.
Do NOT FAIL to attend hotel meeting Friday afternoon in the Court House
