STATE FAIR SOCIETY.
Improvements For State Fair Plant
To Purchase Jamestown Audi.
Columbia, Aug. 11.-It is declared
to 'be the policy of the South Carolina
Agricultural and Mechanical society
to give to the State Fair plant, at Co
lumbia, a character of permanience,
sightliness and capacity it has not
hitherto possessed. The most impor
tant step yet taken in furtherance of
this policy, and the most important
step it will be practicable to take for
some time, will be the acquirement of
the great Jamestown Exposition audi-I
torium, of steel and glass, the pur
chase of which, at $25,000, was ar
ranged for some time ago, through
the good offices of the city, and which
is to be paid for out of the proceeds
of thie $25,000 bond issue authorized
by the society at its' meeting here
Thursday. It is intended that this
structure -shall be completed from
time to time, as funds warrant, by
other buildings of sightly'and lasting
kind, especially adapted to their sev
The society adopted a resolution,
presented from- its executive commit
tee, contemplating the flotation of
bonds of the organization, in the de
nomination of $500, to the number of
not more than fifty, the term to be
ten years and the inteiest rate 6 pier
cent, paylble semi-annually. The
flotation will raise $25,000.
The society has bleen hampered, in
its endeavors to develop a permanent
and adequate plant, by legal disabili
ties, ajising from the tenure of its
property, the title to which riemiained
and remains vested in the city, so that
capital for construction could not be
raisedl by mortgage of the real estate.
It required a sliecial'act of the general
assembly, which was passed only in
February of this year, to authorize the
raising of a loan on a mortgage by the
city of these lands. It is by such
mortgage that the bonds to be issued
now will be secured.
It was decided to leave the details
of the bond issue to a coinmittee con
sisting of R. L. Manning, Sumrter,
chairman; J. A. Bajiks, president, .St.
Matthews; J. M. Cantey, secretary,'
