It Holds an Int<-r?-stitiy Meeting Friday
Kreiling and the Committees Itcport
by Joshua P. Uuilitt.
A good number were present again
Friday night at the regular weekly meet?
ing of the Commercial Club. All the
committee!' were represented by one or
more of its members. The reading of
the minutes of the last meeting was first
in order. They were read and approved.
Mr. Mills, chairman of the reception
committee, being absent, Mr. Simmons
reported that they had held a meeting on
Friday afternoon, and they were not en?
tirely asleep; that they had taken some
preliminary action and would inform
themselves better ott the resources of the
country go as to be able to give strangers
adequate information. He said they would
have a more satisfactory report to make
at the next meeting.
Mr. Blnckford, also one of the recep?
tion committee, said they had been dis
cussiug the advisability of having some
cards printed and posted in conspicuous
places, containing the names of the re?
ception committee and where they could
be found: also the names of all the com?
Mr. Bullitt suggested that this he done I
at one.-. H - said he had forgotten what j
committees he was on and thought a mini
beruf others were like him. On motion
by Mr. I'-iiiiiti tie- reception committee
was instructed to have these cards printed
for distribution and to be posted in con?
spicuous places, such as in the hotels,
dummy line. etc.. for the accommodation
of >iraii_rers as well as the members of
Mr. Shelby, of the finance committee,
- iid they had nothing definite to report,
but they had been working on the plan
proposed at tiie last meeting for raising
fumis, and thought they had a scheme on
foot to raise from iff0,000 to $15,000 for
club purposes, but definite action of the
committee was awaiting the decision of
the trustee of the Improvement Company
in regard to signing deeds to lots for the
club, ami tii.it they expected to hear from
him soon after he had been advised by
his counsel. As to the other companies
he thought they would respond promptly
after seeing what the Improvement Com?
pany was going to do. and that the L. &
X. and S. A. & <>. railroad companies
would donate liberally when called upon.
Mr. Bullitt said tiie reason the trustee
was reluctant in giving his consent was
that three-fourths of the money realized
on sales went lo satisfy the bondholders,
and ti.e trustee thought it would he in
violation of tiie deed of trust to donate
property for the purpose indicated. He
suggested, however, that some sort of a
contract be obtained from the Improve?
ment Company, binding them to donate so
much in cash or so much in lots, calling
on them only when ii was needed, so thai
when some definite arrangements were
made with them, the other companies
would know how-to act in the matter.
Judge Mnury said the members of the
Imbodeu Company were ready to come
forward and give their due proportion as
soon as the matter could be arranged.
Mr. Shell.; -aid I ha' Mr. I nine would See
tiie officials of the Fayette Land Company
while a! Louisville this trip, and would
lay ilo- scheme before them as forcibly as
possible, und thought there would lie no
trouble in getting them to do their part.
The grievance committee had no report
to make. .Mr. Addison, chairman, said
!.is time had been pretty well engaged for
awhile, and he had only heard recently
that he was on a committee, nor did he
hardly know the character of his work,
I.nt supposed by (lie name that he iiad
been selected because he was a -kicker."
lb--aid his kicking days were over and he
would call the committee together ami
report -t the next meeting.
Mr. Simmons, one of the committee on
soliciting members, reported about sev?
enty subscribers, an addition of ten since
the last meeting. He said Mr. Summer
field .rave him the names of several Dan?
ville parties, who were interested in Big
Stone Gap, and desired to become mem?
bers of ihe club. On motion by Mr. Mc?
Dowell another member was put on the
committee, with instructions that lie col?
lect the iniatiation fees. W. C. liobiiisoti
Mr. Irvine, chairman of the advertising
committee, being absent. Mr. Sprolcs re
ported that they had not held a meeting,
or done anything but wen- waiting to hear
from the finance committee before pro?
Mr. Sprolcs. one of I'm- committee on
incorporating ihe club, reported that they
had a partial charter prepared, and hoped
to have it ready for the next meeting.
The industrial committees wen- next
heard from. Mr. Simmons spoke for Mr.
Estes, on furniture, who requested him
to sav that he was in favor of any move?
ment towards the establishment of a
furniture factory, and would give some of
his time and attention towards pushing
the thing along: that they expected them?
selves to establish a factory of that kind
between now and spring.
Mr. Spndes, one of the committee on
tanimry, reported that they hud been cor?
responding w ith several parties in regard
lo locating here ami spoke of one in par?
ticular he thought they would be able to
Mr. Simmons, one of the committee on
stone-cutting, tire-brick and clay, said
they had no report to make, but he had
had a talk with Mr. Parsons about the
brick business, who thought that no more
brick could be made until spring.
Mr. Parsons was called upon to say
something about the brick business and
made a clear statement of the situation.
He said that not much could be done be?
fore spring w ithout a dryer, and even if he
were to order a dryer now, with the
present railroad facilities, it could not be
put up here before spring, at which time
he hoped the sun would perform the work
of a dryer. Besides he thought after the
first rush was over for hrick, the demand
would not justify him in getting a dryer,
as they were a very expensive machine.
He said he had material on the ground
now to make the most complete brick plant
to be found within seventy-five miles of
l?g Stone Gap.
Mr. John TIaniiu. one of the committee
on harness and leather, said they had no
report lo make.
The matter was discussed of subscrib?
ing for a journal that cave a list of facto?
ries and industries desiring to change
locations, etc. < >n motion by Mr. Sim?
mons, the president was authorized to
subscribe for such :i journal, and pay for
it out of the funds of the club, to be used
for the benefit of the club.
Mr. Tracy, one of the committee on
sash, door and blinds, reported that they
had been corresponding with a number of
parties, ami one talked very much in favor
of locating here.
Mr. Simmons, chairman of the commit?
tee on statistics, said he had not been ablo
to get them together, but that he had been
talking with some lumbermen about get?
ting possession of some valuable timber
near the town, and hoped to have some?
thing worth reporting by the next meet?
Mr. J. W. Fox, who had just returned
from New York, was called upon to say
something, but he seemed rather reluc?
tant, saving that there were some im?
portant movements in the wind, but wero
not mature enough to disclose. He said
he looked for considerable activity here
this winter and a great deal next spring;
many millions of dollars would be in
vested here within that time. Mr. Fox
suggested that a committee be added on
glass works, as he had been negotiating
with a man in I'ittsburg in regard to get?
ting a factory of that kind here and
thought he would succeed. He spoke of
some one who had discovered a quality of
stone near this place that was admirably
adapted to the manufacture of glass. On
motion, duly, seconded, a committee was
chosen for this purpose, the following
being selected: Messrs. Fox, Shelton, and
Mr. bullitt proposed that steps be taken
towards 111 * - erection of a fifty thousand
dollar building on Wood avenue to use for
holding (dub meetings, other secular
meetings, ami for the use of the dill'erent
religious denominations on Sunday if de?
sired. His plan was to try to raise the
money by a bonded scheme. On motion by
Mr. bullitt a committee of live were ap?
pointed to go to work on the matter at
once. The committee chosen were Mr.
bullitt. Dr. Kunkel, Judge Skccn, Mr.
Addison ami Judge Muury.
Mr. Fox tendered the club the use of the
building lately occupied by Mr. Robinson,
on Shawnee avenue. It will be fitted up
at once, ami the meetings hereafter will
l.e In hl there. A vote of thanks was ten?
dered Mr. Fox for the same.
On motion the meeting adjourned.
