I want to call the attention of ev ery public spirited citizen of Tryon to the present status of the proposed hotel company which some ofus have been trying to form for the purpose of securing another hotel in Tryon. E very one. who wishes to see Tryon improve as a resort town willv agree that the most necessary step is to se cure additional hotel accommodations. We cannot expect outside capital ists to cora(e here and-invest their money in n enetrprise of this kind unless the get considerable support from Tryon people. JTryon has "wait ed for years for just such an oppor tunity as ijs now presented to us through Mjr. Brown's proposition' to build a; fine, modern hotel on the old Mimosa site, if the citizens would join "with, him in the formation of the company. Now.it looks as though the opportunity will be lost through the lack of j support of the plan. Two weeks ago ft looked as though the ho tel was an assured fact, so much so that many people seem to think that it will be fcuilt anyway, without their support. The result, is that many people whej could subscribe and wno would be benefitted by the hotel being hereare siltting back and doing noth ing, each one thinking, apparently, that whethier they do or do not sup- port the proposition in a financial way, will make no difference as to whether the hotel is built or not.If each one oi these was alone in his at titude it would not make any differ ence, but today there are so many who are standing back, waiting for the other fellow to pull the chv-tnuts out of the lire, that it looks as though there woul d be no chestnuts and no hotel. - - We want t& make a final appeal to every citizon of Tryon to' get busy and make it his or her business to see that we secure the hotel. We must have cooperation now. A week hence will be too Slate and we shall have seen the opportunity slip' from us. G. H. rtOLMES, for Committee. o- MILL SPRING. JackSon, Sunday. ?
