Stkelhouo, Texas, Fob. 1, 1892. To the Ktlltor of TUo News. Gentlemen 1 hayo mado it a pub lic matter that I shall not devote any more timo or money to the building ud faotories in this iron ore section I where "shotgun ru.o" and pistol toters dictate terms. I have spont two years time and a largo amount of money to place the iron oro bofore capitalists in tno North and England, and had just ne gotiated for the first $50,000 to help erect a 50 ton furnace, but to devoto further timo and money in a section where the shotgun would destroy all things at a moments timo will bo loft for thoso who prefer suoh sport. I am a manufacturer of .large ex perience and the last sixteen years havj been devoted to the Southern trade; for tho last three years I havo been a New Birminghamcr and lost some $75,000 in booming that place and am willing to put in what I can save i'.om the wreok into a series of factories in some good oity in Texas. There is nothing from some con tral located oity representing in Texas what tho manufacturing cities of Mo line, Raoiue, South Bend, Springfield does in the north and within less ter ritory. Tho capital to start those manufac tories need not bo large and could successfully compete with those of the north in quality of goods and in pricos. The manufacture of wngons, ohilled plows, cast plows would give employment to many thousand skilled mechanics and build up tho value of real estate as well as to ship tho goods from the north to Texas and make their property valuablo through money received from this state. As a basis to thoso that desire to help start a sciies of factories I sug gest the following: Tbo sum of $5.00 bo deposited into a fnnd to take up the amounts invest ed out of oaoh wagon as sold. Tho same peroontage from sales of plows. The amount invested in buildings and maohinery to bear a reasonable annual interest until tho operating fund is takon up, then tho same amount set apart to take up this in vestment. I have a list of some 00,000 of the best farmers in Texas and from let ters received there are a large num ber ready to take stook in these facto ries to receive tho output at reasona ble prices. Then there are somo two thousand morohants in various oountry towns that would take certificates with cou pons that entitles them to our goods at factory prices during ton years. This explanation is sufficient to any business man in your city that desires to see a series of faotories established upon a safe basis of investment and withdrawal of funds without future injury to tho output of tho faotories. i ho cities named heretoioro are not in the iron belt of the north, but in tho agricultural sootion and the loca tion of faotories in tho agricultural part of Texas would not prove detri mental from that point of viow or be used as an argument by the iron ore investors. I was called a first class fool by my frionds in Tonn. for mov ing my iaotory to Texas and I dislike to go back alter a loss of nearly all of what I brought with mo. and if there is any city in Texas that will tako any interest in establishment of factories I will join a syndicate for this purpose Bospontfully yours, Geo. DkVant-. The estimablo ladies who have un dertaken to raise Waoo'a quoto of tho World's Fair fund, givo a pleasant "At Home" tomorrow evening from four to twelve.
