THE NASHVILLE BOOSTERS HERE Fine Body of Representative Men Present the Rock City’s Claims for Business. CORDIAL RECEPTION GIVEN THEM The Nashville Booster train ar rived here at 5 o’clock Monday afternoon. Following their band they marched up Main street accompanied by quite a number of citizens, who assem bled to see them and hear them talk. At the corner of Spring and Main street an improvise platform of cotton bales furnish ed a stand for the speakers. The Boosters were welcomed first bv Mayor St, Clair in a few well chosen words, after which the Mayor introduced Hon- John M. Allen to the crowd. Mr. Allen was in a happy vein and his welcome was of such cordiality that the visitors could hot feel but that tney were in the hands of their friends. While apprec iating the many advantages that Nashville afforded as a commer cial and educational center, Mr. Allen took occasion, as he never fails to do, to say a few words about Tupelo. Standing upon a cotton bale and pointing to it, Mr. Allen called attention to the fact that, that was the basis of the South’s wealth and also that the visitors were in one of the finest cotton growing counties in the wh^le South. He also called attention to the fact that the cor porate limits of Tueplo could boast of a cotton record that few towns could claim. Within the corporate limits of the town the cotton plant was grown, that cotton in the seed was ginned, t’iat the lint was manufactured into cloth, that the seed was manufactured into oil. that the hull from the seed were fed to beef cattle, and that the meal from the seed was manufactured Into commercial fertilizers, the fertilizer factory being just be yond the corporate limits. A number of visitors made short speeches in which they presented some splendid argu ments in favor of their town. Mr. Leland Hume, the General Manager of the Cumberland Tel ephone & Telegraph Co. acted as chairman and introduced the visitors. The party left for a tour cov ering many other points in the State.
