Does Falls City - ' .
- . ' Want a . Brick Plant
A well known resident of this
city has lately been irt correspon-
dence with parties who desire to
establish a big brick manufacturing -
ing plant in this city. The mat-
ter has begun to assume definite
form , as shown by the following
letter which was received W d-
Chanute , Kan. . April 11 , 1.904
-Your most valuable letter at
hand of the 10th and will say that
we are ready to consider a loca-
tioli for a press brick plant and
would like to have some detailed
information of the size of your
city ; also some information with
reference to pure water and the
inducement the city might make
for an institution of that kind.
We propose to run an institution
with a capacity of 18,000 pressed
brick and 35,000 commons daily.
If you have a commercial club in
your city would kindly ask you
to put us in contact with them.
. Thanking you in advance for
any favors you might render us ,
we remain , Yours truly ,
Smith & Elliott.

Denver express arrives at 1:35 : p.
m. instead of 1:55 : ; the local Lin-
coln express arrives at ] :48 p. m.
instead of at 2:05 : ; the east bound
Portland train will arrive at 7:27 :

was erected in accordance with
this change of servic
Blaze ai Dawson.
Dawson was again visited by
the fire fiend Tuesday forenoon of
this week. About 11 o'clock
while Geo. Stiles and his assist-
ants were shelling corn out of the
mammoth cribs of the J. H.
Lynds company , a spark from
the engine blew into the crib and
in a very short time the south end
was a solid mass Qf flame. The

This letter l has been turned ,
over to V. G. Lyford , president ref
of the commercial club , and the '
information asked has' -been for-
warded. Messrs. Smith & Elliott " -
win doubtless reply stating their
wants and outlining their propo- t
tition more definitely and then it j \ ' \
win be up to the citizens to decide
upon acceptance or rejection. If \ . ,
the requests of these gentlemen ,
are reasonable , the people of this 6' f'
city will doubtless stand ready to \
give them the proper encourage-
ment We have in the immediate .
vicinity of Fans City an abundance - \
dance of of clay perfectly adapted
to brick making , and this , together -
gether with good shipping facih : .
ties and other advantages , should
wake Falls City a good point for
the location of an idustry of this
kind. From the figures quoted ,
it ! is evident that the plant is to
be a big one and is alt enterprise
we should secure if it is possible
to do so upon reasonable terms.
flames quickly spread to the
wheat and oats cribs near by and
by the time the fire boys arrived
on the scene the fire had attained
such headway that it was ! useless
to try to quench the blaze and
they concentrated their energies
on saving the coal bins and adjoining -
joining buildings. About 3,000
bushels of fine corn were destroyed -
ed with many hundred of wheat
and oats , but at this " writing
( Tuesday aft ; rnoon ) the exact
loss has not been ascertained.
The wind was blowing from the . . !
northwest at the time the fire
started which fact saved the . elevator -
vator and other valuable property -
