This plant is still incomplete and idle> lacking an appropriation of 15 million to finish it and pat it into -operation. Ford plans to transform this white elephant into a paying proposition in the same way in which his wisardy changed the D.^ T. & I. railroad from a $200.000 a month loser to a moneymaker. Ford's first step in setting up an industrial empire was to establish his own "parts" factories in Detroit for hiR auto and tractor plants. His second step was to purchase outright his sources of raw materials. His third step was to buy the D., T. & 1. railroad to transport much of these materials to hiR factories. Now he is taking his fourth step?negotiating for the purchase of the great nitrate plant. Why! To provide cheaper nitrates for farm fertilizer; thus to improve the farms and increase the farm market for tractors aud automobiles. Tribute to J. H. Coltharp.
