Board of Tradj Begins Work With the exemption of the proposed new hotel now secure, the Barre Board of Trade to-day begins a campaign for $10,000 for the hotel project, a part of this sum to be used for the purchase of the site and the remainder to defray expenses alreadv incurred. Three vol untary subscriptions, aggregating f 1,100, were received early this forenoon. The committee from the Board of Trade had not then started on its campaign of solicitation, so the voluntary subscrip tions are very gratilymg. It is to be understood that Barre as a municipality is not to be asked for any money. Voluntary subscriptions that are to make, up the $10,000 are to come from individuals and are not stock sub scriptions. The fund is calculated to give the project another boost, such as it received when the citizens in- special city meeting voted to exempt the hotel prop erty for a, period of five years. In the next few days a deputation from the Board of Trade will canvas the city for subscriptions of this kind. On the strength of present indications, the board believes the canvass will be met with a generous response. It is hoped that the goal which the Board of Trade has fixed will lie reached without delay, as the incorporators plan to begin work on the building within a comparatively short time.
