But the questioaof need. oT " soaieeBterprise of this aatUM, tatrqaestion af ,- the preSbabraVof its WlngtSKeofSanJ eiaNieacflt, and the best possible aorns orse-, curing the same at an earlv date, is- tku queV- r tion-that you and I should look at "vith botb; eyes-open. As-the idea seems to prevail In my vicinity, that I ia ready nay. anxious to-vote-bonds '- ? in aid of thia enterprise, I wilr call Mr atten- tion of friends to ta&fact that I have- neither written or talked in favor of bonding- with ont "qualifing with a large if. Will say further,! do not think it will be necessary to- , . bond in order to obtain the first factory in the -county, and may not for those that felliJw. T do not however, object to bonding, for the ,,! reason offered in Franklin's letter 't5at the factory would be at Colby, and persons living- 00 I ""uvnie umiis oi uc county or- at so great a distance that they could not profitably deliver cane," tori can mo that it would there by benefit the greater number in the oounty. I do so realize the fact that the tuilding or one factory in the county would ultimately bo the nucleus to the building of others. I did norintend to be understood as believing that thefinancial prosperity of tho inhabitants of this state would be assurad by the buiKUngof one sujjur factory in Thomas county. Now as to capitalists or other parties eomingr to our county to invest in real estate, and say ing that on account of bonded indebtedness. 00 they will go somewhere else, 1 wish to Day that a goodIcavcl-headdd man would first enquire 4 go x or what are you bonded? and coiwderwell before-leaving or this account whether in the oo I first putcc we w ere not enjoj Ing thes prive!- iges at comparatively low- cost, and trut if he went otherwheres he would likely Jia7e to do without these adt untages or pay far them more dearly. Remember that real estate in any country commands a price in acuird with its natural;: nd artificial advantages To illus trate:, if you bad to go to a county where rail roads and factories are built, the county en- j Urely without indebtedness, you w 111 pay ful ly all these improvements are worth through the enhanced value of the land. Au-to the de predated value of property in ColLy and sur- ,i rounding country, at present, tlw --railroads are largely responsible for the pries not. be-, t0r, iiigstill lower. 2"S. About bonflisglbe county to btiHti this now talked Ot sugar factory. I w ill ha -y to udraic that I am on the fence, and do not Jcnow which ( way I would jump if compelled to choose. But- rest assured, friends, I'll get off tha fence when the time comes for me to exercise my xiglit of s suffrage, and stand squarely on ce side. Lot us look at the matter or bcidingfor this, puruose, with confederation, that we may not through rash Judgment, so vote '.If compelled " thatit will amount to cutting ourow n nose off to spite our own face. A great dja of reason ing on questions of this kind is lone in a man nenlike the following, which I Leard from the lips of a brother farmer while to one of the Colby stores, talking of the foolishness or bonding: "Why!" said he. "what is the use Of' bonding and putting us in grcktwr debt, when w can hardly pay woat we have to now. Just let the men who have money tuild the factory and we farmers will donate aUtle cane from ytarto year. Why"' said he, -I would will ingly give two or three tons pr year for four or live years." Did not take into considcrndn the fact that by so doing it would cost hiras each 3 ear tig - tiring the price at two dollars per ton) with-, out charge for delivery, aboat twelve tanesas , t. much, provided he owned but one quarter of land, and figuring the bonds to the aincunt of sixty thousand dollar. I noticed also, that this man immediately taxod his grocea for this ' speech, by taking from th barrel a lump of sugar about the size of his fist, whicfcilwould think would be conclusive argumerx to tho mind of at least one towosmr.n thai a sugar factory was a necessity Colby. tiNeghbor Franklin.
