IT
REORGANIZATION
Of H. M. Dalton Stone -Co. and
r
Change of Name.
Recently there has been a reor
ganization of the' H. M. -Dalton
Stone Co. This company since the
death of H. M. Dalton, five or mere
years ago, has had its general office
at Evansville, Ind. Mr. C. P. White,
a man of considerable wealth, has
lately taken more active charge and
tffected a nrw organization and the
name has been changed to that of
The Kentucky Crushed Stone Com
pany." Mr. White's home is at
Boonvi le, Ind. We are reliably in
formed that the company will begin
active operations about the middle
of Marc'i, or as soon ns weather con
ditions become favorable. The com
pany's quarry, between the river
jind the Greenville road, East of the
city, consists of splendid blue lime
stone and the company has never had
any trouble disposing of every car of
stone it has crushed, the railroad us
ing moat of it for ballast. The de
mand here for crushed and pulver
ized stone last year was far in excess
of the local supply, and consequent
ly a great quantity was shipped in
from, Princeton, Cerulean and other
places.
Building operations here this year
will be far in excess of 1912 and the
demand for crushed and pulverized
stone will be correspondingly great
er, but it is probably that the rail
roads will take most, if not all, of,
the output of the Kentucky Stone
Co. If that be so, the local demand
must be supplied entirely from the
local company's quarries east of the
city, near the Nashville pike.
The Kentucky Crushed Stone Com
pany, we learn, is preparing to com
mence active operations in a short
time. The company, when running
at full capacity, can give employ
ment to about 150 men and they pay
good wages. Mostly colored people
are employed. The big whistle has
not been heard for a long time and
tne colored population will rejoice
to hear its welcome sound in the
early morning hours. about two
weeks hence.

t is said that possession will be giv
