Hn-neer, Owner, V. A. Robnett, Says
Columbia Xeeds Another Hotel.
"I have made no plans whatever con
cerning the ruins of the Powers Hotel
Building." said D. A. Robnett, the
owner. "Columbia needs another first
class hotel, but I have no desire to
engage in the business again.
"If some man who is looking for a
good location for a first class hotel
would come here and build he would
do well. There used to be three good
hotels here, when Columbia did not do
as much business as it does now. The
Gordon Hotel has been closed some
two or three years. That left more
business to the other two. Now since
the Powers has burned the one hotel
left can hardly handle the large num
ber of guests."
