Citizen's Progressive League.
An enthusiastic meeting of the
Citizen's Progressive League was
held at the Court House last
Monday night. The purpose of
the meeting was to discuss and
consider industrial matters pend
ing before this city.
The offer of Mr. Kavanaugh,
the New York manufacturer, was
discussed some time and it was
the consensus of opinion that if
Mr. Kavanaugh will visit this
city and show the people what
he has to offer that no trouble
will be experienced in interest
ing Columbus capitalists in his
enterprise. He has one of the
largest plants of its kind in the
country, it is on a paying and
profitable basis and he is anx
ious to bring it South on account
of the labor conditions in this
section and the advantages offer
ed in coal and raw material. Mr.
Kavanaugh will be invited to
visit this city and the people of
Columbus will have an opportu
nity of learning everything of
value in connection with this en
terprise. The matter of the location of a
spoke factory here was also dis
cussed and those who are at the
head of the movement were in
vited to come and were assured
of every concession and favor
which the people of this city can
guarantee. Locations were dis
cussed and a number of available
sites were offered. This matter
will be heard of again on the 10th
of this month wrhen representa
tives of this concern will visit
Columbus and examine into the
timber resources of this section.
The outlook for Columbus from
an industrial standpoint could
not be better and the location of
these enterprises here will mean
that many more will follow.
