$10,000 which he wants to invest

vance $15000 additional to make up
the necessary capital. Mr. Mead has

business. He came here yesterday
and a meeting was called in the office
of F. G. Fleetwood last evening, a
number of business men being present.
Mr. Mead was questioned as to his
success in the past in this business,
and he stated that he had run the
business to a proBt every year but
one in course qf his experience. He
stated that about 100 hands would
be employed. A committee consisting
of three of our substantial business

and H. P. Munwon were appointed to
investigate the matter aad report at
