Editor of the Signal:
It will only be a few weeks until
a large fcrce of men will be at work
at Pine Hill, putting up buildings
installing, machinery, grading for
rail road tracks for the million
dollar Portland Cementplant which
is surely to be built at that place.
This is to be the largest plant of
the kind in the South. It is one
of the great industries which are
going up in Eastern Kentuky and
Tennessee and we are certainly
fortunate to have this great
property erected in this county.
It will be a great benefit to our
citizens in many ways and it is
hard to estimate its value to the
citizens of Mt. Vernon, for there
are so many things to be con
sidered. These people will have a
monthly pay-roll of $2o,ooo.oo to
$30,000.00 and a great deal of it
will be spent right here in Mt.
Vernon if we can arrange to give
them a chance to come to us.
Many ot the employees will make
their homes in Mt. Vernon to have
the advantages of our schools and
to be away from the confusion of
the factory plant. These citizens
we need and must have. We must
get to work and build a first class
road to Pine Hill and it must be
done at once. One of the officers
of the company told me that if
we could get the road built, he
would build his home in Mt. Ver
non and that it would be a nice
one. Others of the company will
do likewise. They will furnish
us electric lights and power all
we can use and cheaper than we
could get it any otherway. I have
said too much already but will say
that I haven't got the cork halt
way out. Let's get busy for the
road to Pine Hill and a new hotel
tor Mt. Vernon. Let everybody
