Tile question of extending tho corpo

Fultonburg and adjacent territory was
taken up September 20, 1887, and re
ferred to a committee consltlrlg of Col.
T. W. Moore, S. M. McMillln and F.
V. Oldham. It was claimed with truth
that a great deal belonged to Marietta
that was not included in tho city lim
its. The people were enjoying all the
benefits of the city without paying any
city taxes or adding their increment of
numbers to the population. The abovo
Committee, at the next meeting, was
Increased by adding W. M. Morse, S.
B. Klrby, Murray McMillln, Robert T.
Moore and E. R. Alderman.
Even at this early date In the history
of the Board the Railroad Committee
had secured more favorable time tables

dermar to Turner's store on the west
side of Front street between Butler and
Monroe streets, and the lack of first
class hotel accommodatipns had long
been felt. -The following Committee
was appointed to secure an option on

WATER WORKS. .
ft was feared that so vital a question
to the progress and welfare of the cllj
as water works would be lost sight of
by the citizens and that for want of
full information on the subject the
proposition might fall. Accordingly, at
the same meeting a committee was ap
pointed to Influence public sentiment
on this all Important subject. The fol
lowing committee was appointed: J. H.
Cinftoi'.. "U, . Mill"?, R. T. Moore,
V V. Robtr.fon and E. F. Wells.
At the next meeting, April '3rd, VS8

that this people tenerally were In f.ivor
of crocting a fiist class hotel. The f 1

ed to the committee: The Committee
on Looal Mercantile interests and W.
H. Buell and E. F. Wells.
At the same meeting, rooms for the
Board of T'ade were leased of Mr. K.
R. Alderman, who was then reeon
structir.g the building on Front streit
which had been destroyed by fire.
At the meeting April 9th, 18S8, the
Hotel Committee reported that a hotel
with two store fronts and fifty rooms
could be built for $25,000, including the
cost of ground. A committee of Hire
was appointed to secure subscriptions
to stock and to secure Articles of In
corporation for the hotel company u n

however, was soon abandoned.
The question of a proper observance
of the One Hundredth Anniversary o
the settlement of Ohio and of the es
tablishment of Civil Government undci
tho ordinance of 1787 in the Northwest
Territory, had for a long time agitated
the community, and, as Is usual id
cases involvlng.the whole community,
there was great difference of opinion as
to the manner and time of such centen
nial celebration. The Board of Trade
did not take sides with either faction
of tho community, but on May 15, 188S.
tho Board voted that the Committee on
Local Mercantile Interests prepare a
trade display for the celebration in
Tho trades display as well as tho
Centennial Celebration was a great
BONDS ISSUED FOR NEW INDUS
TRIES. In common with many other cities
In Ohio Marietta in her anxiety to se
cure new industries was willing to is
suobonds to raise money for bonuses
to prospective mnnufacturies. Accord
ingly the Board of Trade In tho year
1891 appointed a committee to secure
legislation for that purpose. Thereup
on such Influences were brought to
bear on the Stnte Legislature that an
Act was passed authorizing tho City
of Marietta to issuo bonds in tho sum
of 150,000.00 for tho purpose of induc
ing new Industries to locate hero.
However, tho interests of tho city were
so well guarded during tho Ufo of the
law, which was limited as to time, that
not a bond was sold or a dollar of tha
city's monoy expended. Tho Commit
teo in chargo laid down plain and fair
business conditions, which none of tho
Concerns applying for tho mnnnv rnnld
or would comply with, saved for the
, NEW OIL DEVELOPMENTS.
In the year 1890 tho Board of Trade
being familiar with the history of the
Cow Run oil developments as well aa
with all other oil and gas territory in
tho region round about .Marietta, which
had been discovered since tho early six
ties, and believing that 'largo areas
were still undeveloped nround the city,
in order to call attention to this fact,
a map was prepared showing by circles,
with Marietta ns tho center, tho dis
tances of all known oil and ras terri
tory within a radius of fifty miles from
tho city. This map was widely circu
lated having been printed on thtbacl;s
of letter paper and distributed among
tho merchants and other business men
who used the same in their corres
pondence. This map with accompanying print
ed matter served to call attention to
this city and the surrounding territory
as an oil region and helped to Indues
the oil operators to put down test wells
in our immediate neighborhood, re
sulting in many rich oil strikes and in
the flocking to Marietta of many new
and valuable citizens who have during
the past eight or nine years contributed
largely to the growth and prosperity of
It is not necessary to go into the de
tails of every movement for the ad
vancement of the city'sjnterests. Tho
accomplished facts are as follows:
The annexation of Harmar, Fulton
burg, and East End territory in the
year 1890. The city water works in tho
same year, 1890. Street paving with
brick in the year 1890. Reduction of
taxation bv State Board of Equaliza
tion 1890. Sanitary system of sewer
age 1891. Naming of United States
Man of War for Marietta resulting in
naming gunboat "Marietta" 1895. Se
curing Marietta Boiler, Works in 189C.
Seeming an appropriation from Con
gress of $850,000.00 to build a lock and
dam In the Ohio River just below Mar
ietta, 1S99. Succesful campaign for new
court house 1898. $10,000.00 for Lob
dell Rim Works 1898. Reduction of
valuation for taxation bv State "Board
of Equalization 1901.
On May 1, 1S9C, the Board adopted
resolutions inaugurating a movement
for a new court-house for Washington
county and on July 21, 1898, at an ad
Journed meeting the following commit
tee was appointed: W. D. Devol, D. B.
Torpy, Col. T. W. Moore, E. R. Al
derman, J. H. Grafton, B. F. Strecker,
A. D. Follett, B. J. McKlnney. C. A.
Miller and C. A. Ludoy.N
On September 15, 1898 after fully In
vestigating the cost of court houses In
other counties, and considering careful
ly the amount of money necessary to
build a court house in Washington
county the following resolution was
"Resolved, That the Board of Trade
of the City of Marietta, hereby request
the Commissioners of Washington
County to submit to the voters of said
county at the election to be held In No
vember, 1898, the question of issuing
the bonds of said County to the amount
of $125,000.00 for the purpose of con
structlng a court house and jail for said
This was presented to the County
Commissioners by the Committee and
arguments advanced In support of the
proposition, which meeting with the
approval of that body was duly sub
milted to a vote. The Board of Trade
Committee thereupon began a cam
paign for the success of the movement
and held numerous public meetings in
different parts of the county and
through the Pre? Commltttee of the
Board of Trade kept the newspapers
supplied with articles on the subject
The campaign was successful. The
vote carried by a small margin and
notwithstanding there was an Injunc
tion suit brought to prevent the bonds
being issued and other troubles all was
finally cleared away andnow we have
here the foundations ofa new court
house duly laid, and while the Board
of Trade and the County Commission
ers hrve had a iittlo tussle about the
Inscriptions on tho corner stone we
want to congratulate them on the good
judgment they have displayed in their
determination to give the people of the
county a fine building magnificent in
Its proportions and appointments and
up-to-date In every respect, a splen
did Temple of Justice which will not
only be a monument to tho enterpris
of the Marietta Board of Trade but lo
the good sense and progress of tho
County Commissioners and Tax-Payers
of Washington County.
