CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MAKES DECISION AFTFR CONFERENCE. YESTER DAY NORTH DAKOTA ELEVATOR MAN <r*Mf _ Came to Anderson Yesterday to Confer With Committee as to Elevator-Closed Deal With Him. FOLLOWING a conference yester day afternoon between Edward H. Richarde, of Willow City, North Da kota, who came to Anderson to con duct his own investigation with a v'ew of determining the chances for Buccess of a grain elevator at this point, and the farmers's and business mon's grain committee, of the cham ber of commerce, the committee de cided that the plans' for the erection of a grain elevator here would be re vived and pushed through to, success. A tentative contract with Mr. Rich ards to remove to Anderson and take active charge of 'the grain elevator wan entered into between the visitor and the committee. * The plans are to secure from the secretary of state Immediately the necessary papers of incorporation, perfect the elevator corporation, close a formal contract with Mr. Richards and raise by a whirlwind campaign the few thous and dollars necessary to finance the undertaking. He Means Business. Several days ago the chamber of commerce received a letter from Mr. Richards stating that he would be in Anderson some time this winter for a conference with business men and farmers wth reference to a grain elevator proposition. Yesterday morntng Mr. Richards called on Sec retary Porter A. Whaley of the cham ber of commerce and- make known his business. Mr. Richards was In troduced to several prominent busi ness men of the city and planters of the county during the day, with whom he discussed the grain elevator pro position. Yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock Mr. Richards met with the commit tee of th chamber of commerce which baa had the matter of raising funds for a g/lin elevator In hand and d bl eu used with them the proposition in a very full and detailed manner. For Born? two and a halt hours the mat ter was discussed. Mr. Richards has bad considerable experience with grain elevators in North Dakota and operates several plants of the kind at . the present He came to Anderson prepared to make any kind of a rea sonable deal looking to the erection of an elevator here, either by subscrib ing a portion of the money necessary to erect lt, subscribing all the money necessary or taking no stock In the enterprise but managing lt for those who did subscribe'the necessary cap ital. Only Small Pleat The conference with Mr. Richards developed the feet that the commit tee .had had entirely too large an ele vator under consideration in their previous plans. . He- stated that a' much smaller plant, one costing not more than }5,000, woud answer all local purposes for some time tb go. The only obstacle Mr. Richards saw in the way ot his coming here was the lack of sufnolent grain In the country to warrant his .removing here and putting his money into an eleva tor. He was assured by the commit tee that there would be enough grain produced in 'this county to make the elevator proposition a safe one. When all these matters had been threshed out to the satisfaction of both members of the committee and Mr. JRichards, a tentative contract where by Mr. Richards will be employed tb take active management of tho grain elevator was drawn up. The ?com mittee then screed that papers of in corporation, would be applied for in the next few days, the organisation perfected and the balance ot the' stvck needed to bu'ld the elevator sold.
