Business Men Are Earnest and En thusiastic in the Matter. The Work of Securing Subscrip tions Was Commenced Yester day, and Nearly Two Thousand Dollars Was in Sight Last Even ing, the Firfet Four Subscribers Giving $600—The Next Meeting Changed to Wednesday Evening. The wholesale merchants, jobbers, and many of the manufacturers are enthusiastic over the project of hav ing a merchants’ day some time next month, and the matter has started off In a way which ensures its complete success. The time for the next meet ing of the business men has been changed from next Tuesday evening to Wednesday evening, as it was found this would suit the largest number. It is hoped to have a very good at tendance, as at the next meeting the subscription committee will report, an executive committee will he appointed, i permanent Secretary and Treasurer elected, and much information aiout details will be submitted by the Com mittees appointed at Thursday even ing's meeting. The Committee on Ar rangements will not be called to meet until after Wednesday’s meeting, when it will be known just how much money will be available, and the pro gramme can be laid out accordingly. This Committee will also be enlarged, so as to allow the appointment of a number of sub-committees to look up special information, necessary to the blocking out of a proper programme, and this will be submitted, when com pleted, to the Executive Committee, which will probably be given power to act, so as to avoid the necessity of calling a third meeting of business men. The Finance Committee got to work promptly yesterday, had $1,000 in sight by 2 p. m., $1,700 by 4 p. m., and $2,000 at 6 p. m.

The remainder will be obtained Mon day and Tuesday. All the indications point to the complete success of the venture, and there seems to be no doubt but that a good deal of good will result. B. & 0.
