Southern Aluminium Company
has transferred titleftp its Badin
and Whitney holdioto the Alu
minium Company bf . Amerisa,
with headquarters in Pittsborgr
Pa., the amount involved in the
transaction, it is understood, ap
proximating $10,000,000. The
negotiations were concluded at a
conference participated iu by of-,
fioiala of the Frencp . Syndicate
and the AlomiLiam Company of
Ameiioa at the Rita Carlton Ho
tel in Nsw York on Saturday, Oo
tobsr 23, aud definite information
is just transpiring. It is. stated
that the development work will
move rapidly ahead and that the
plans of the original designets will
be carried out with only very
alight modifications.;; The out
standing feature of this announce
ment is that the several thomand
employes formerly givja work on
this development will 3e returned
just as soon as. the details of
transfer can be consummated and
arrangements perfected for the
resumption of operations. This
will probably require several
weeks aud maybe a .month but it
will be forthcoming within the
very near future.
The announcement', of this
rausfer and the infdimation that
work will be resumed within a
short time is one of the most im
portint to the business and com
mercial interests of this section
that hai been made in a loug
time. The Aiamiuium Company

Tub Tenuessee plant is the one
that is oeareat t3 the latest acquis
ition of the company..
The work at Badin and Whitney
waa undertaken several years ago
when the Freuoh Syndicate ac
quired the holding) of the original
Whitney company, then owned by
Pittsburg interests. The plans of
the original oompany wre ohaug
ed and a new development mapped
out, the powtr site being looated
nearer the foot of the narrows of
the Y idkiu River and a great alu
minium pUut being proposed for
Bddin the new tjwu to le built.
Ihe mjuey was provided by
French bankers and was moving
sploadidly ahead wheu the great
war came on. A magnificent lit
tle city had been almost finished,
the immense buildings to house
the aluminium works, cf steel,
concrete and the very best mater
ial, were well on their way to
completion and the great hydro
electric development where ap
proximately 10,000 of electrical
horsepower was to be generated,
was being vigorously proseouted.
Just at this moment, the work had
to be suspended on aooount of the
convulsion abroad in which France
was so deeply iuvolved. There
were conferencea at which time
arrangements were perfected for
the holding in suspense of the
work and this has been the status
ever since.
No active work has
been prosecuted smoe the war
broke out save suoh as was neoes
sary to prevent any depreciation
of the property.
