Mayor Carson has received a letter
from Messrs. Ingersol & Peyton,
law firm of Knoxville, stating that
they represent a syndicate of Eastern
capitalists who would like to have a
franchise for the construction of a
6ystem of water works in McMinn
ville. They state that if the town de
sires water works, and the franchise
can bo procured, one of their firm,
with n representative of the syndi
cate, will come to McMinnville and
lay the plans of the construction
company before our people. The
syndicate proposes to build the works
and lay the pipes through the streets
without any outlay of money from
the town. Mayor Carson gave them
favorable answers to all of their in
quirios, and wo hope to see the gen
tlemen here before many days. Our
people would be very glad to see
good system ol water works put in
and it will prove a profitable invest
ment to the Company which under
