More Hoel Room.
The directors of the Manufacturers
hotel met yesterday to dispose of some
regular business. Although nothin
was done at this meeting in regard to
increasing the room capacity of the
institution it is impossible that the

and the building be modified so that
it could be used fur hotel purposes.
