tee was entrusted with the mission of se
curing an optioi on the Brooks tract and

secured by the proposed enterprise.
Therefore be it
Resolved, That we do bereby recom
mend the project to the citizens of the
two cities, believing that the following
objects will be pecured:
1. A real estste investment at a con
servative price is property so centrally
Ioca'ed that the growth of our population
will enhance its value enough to secure to
stockholders, in case of sale at a future
dte. a liberal profit on their shares inde
pendent from revenue to be derived by the
proposed uses f ir the immediate future.
3. A reserve, owned and controlled by
the public spirited citizens of the two
towns that can be secured when the time
is ripe as a site for such public buildings
and grounds as the natural development
of this communi y will demand in a cen
tral location at to very distant day a re
setve that will rtnder such improvements
a possibility instead of a comparative im
possibility, should this sole remaining
tract between the twocities be platted and
covered with dwellings and business
3. The establit hment of a corporation
charged with the mission of promoting
in every way possible and at all seasons
the joint interests of theBe two cities by
advertising to th ) world their unparal
leled advantages by exhibiting their
pro'uets of mechanical industry and
skill, to mechanics and manufacturers
Becking new locations by organizing an
agricultural fair '.bat will render this lo
cation the Mecca for the farmers of this

place of meetirg and encampment for all
large gatherings, whether of military or
civic societies, or of trade organizations,
by fostering all k.ndred protects that can
in any way bring the two cities into
prominence before the world, or that can
in anyway promite the growth of the
cities or the trade and business of their
4. The pleasun- of the citizens cf these

beautiful grounde with perhaps a small
