QUESTION OF WATER SUPPLYCISIDERED Chamber Of Commerce To Urge Purchase Of Tract For In creasing Facilities The Anuapoils Chamber of Com merce met in regulur session last night. Much important business was transacted, and the Chamber en dorsed the Boys’ Week movement and appropriated $25 as its contribution to the playground fund. The committee on the packing plant, which it is contemplated build ing in this city in the not far distant future, reported the results of the re cent conference, stating that a plant was practically assured for Annapolie and that it would be in operation not later than next spring. The officials of the plant will capitalize with $200.- 000 in shares, half of which will be sold in this city. To Appear Before Water Board After listening to the report of the packing plant committee, the Cham ber, upon suggestion of C. M. White president, apDOinted a committee to appear before the Water Board and recommend the purchase of a tract of land adja'cent to the city water works which has a fine water supplv. It ha? become known that an outside party is about to close a deal on this prop erty. The Chamfer's recommenda tion on this matter was decided upon as a step looking forward to the lo cating of the packing plant here, this being a matter which will depend solely upon the city water supply sys tem. Not only does the location of the contemplated packing plant rest upon the question of an abundant water supply, but the location here of other plants in the future will be de termined by the same extremely im portant factor. Having reached its decision to ap point the committee on the water question, the Chamber devoted its at tention to other husiuess, transacting much that was of general benefit tc the community.

As an indication of this the average price of all auto moliles sold, was not more than S2OO Some of the cars were old, and dilap idated, and brought scarcely SIOO. A few went cheaper than that. So great was the amount of stock in the place that further sales were postponed un til Monday morning at 10 o’clock. The sales are being conducted by Nicholas H. Green and Ridgely P Melvin, as trustees, with William H Moss, auctioneer. The goods repre sent the trust estate of Robert F. Strange, trading as the Strange Motor Car Company.
