The American Society of Equity whose headquarters; are at Wausau/ contemplate locating a co-operative packing plant in this city. Such a plant would be die second of its kind in the United States, the first one having been established by the Amer ican Society of Equity just recently at La Crosse, Wisconsin. The officers of the society are taking great pride in their success of this new venture, of farmers entering into the business of operating their own plants and putting the finished product on to the market. A packing plant here in Wausau would mean a direct market for the farmers’ livestock and a home supply of finished products for the retail butchers, who would also be relieved of the necessity of maintaining individual slaughter houses, their work could be done by the packing plant much more econ omically than any oilier way and at the same time all by-products would be utilized. Farmers will receive bet ter prices, because they can bring their stock direct to the plant and receive the full market price based on the central markets, without any deduction for freight charges as un der the present method of shipping to Chicago. Better prices, means development of the live stock indus try, with the consequent develop ment along other agricultural lines. Retailers and consumers will be benetited by having this home supply, saving charges of meats from the large packing plants of Chicago. J. H. Carnahan of Black River Falls, Wisconsin, chairman of the Equity packing plant committee, when in the city recently looking over the ground said : “About the possibility of the local plant being hampered by competition from the large packers, the American Society of Equity has worked for six years on this proposi tion and has safeguarded its co-oper ative institutions from discrim inatory competition u> having a lav, passed in the state known as the Anti Discrimination Law preventing large corporations from reducing or raising prices at one point and mak ing up for tire loss at another, for the purpose of destroying competi tion.’’ The local plant, said Mr. Carnahan, will be modern in every respect anti we do not fear com pet i tion in the least. Several sites have been looked over but no selection made, two of them, one north and one south of the busi ness section cf the city on the river have been considered the most favor able. The plant will mean an out lay of about 250,000 apd w ill employ at the beginning about 60 men. Dr. Sauerherring of the Board of Health has intererved himself In the proposi tion and under his strict supervision, Wausau will get a modern, fire proof sanitary plaot. Ira M. J. Chryst, national president of the American Society of Equity who is a Ism presi dent of the La Crosse plant, expects to be in the city the beginning if next week and together Mr. Car nahan and oilier officers w ill hold a conference at the society’s headquar ters.

A VALUABLE INSTITUTION The Wisconsin Valley Trust Company Occupying Its New and Enlarged Beautiful Quartern. On August 6, 1908, the Wisconsin Valley Trust company opened for business in its present magnificent building, occupying the first three rooms on the first floor. The business of the trust company has grown from year to year, so that it became necessary to enlarge its business quarters. The officers and directors of che company realized this fact. Its quarters have now been en larged so that the trust company oc cupies the entire first floor of the building. The hanking rooms are considered the handsomest and most up-to-date of any in tlie state of Wis consin, beautiful tile floors, marble wainscoting throughout the entire first floor. Entirely new’ fixtures were installed, which are of marble and quarter-sawvd oak. They are digni fied and up-to-date, and make these rooms \ery attractive. The large front room, formerly used for the trust company business, is now used entirely for the safety deposit vault rooms. This room is equipped with private booths, ladies’ writing desks, and every other modern con venience for doing a safety deposit business. The vaults in which the safety boxes are housed have been steel lined, closed by massive doors controlled by automatic locking de vice. Everything has been jdone to insure absolute safety in this as well as other departments. The officers and directors invite all of their friends and the public to inspect the present beautiful business quarters. It matters not whether you do business with the company or not, you are welcome, and the officers will be glad to show you around.
