Commissioners Giro Idea
Favorable Consideration- -
Committee Appointed.
Mrfej with hit goldon touch nor
tbs Wandering Jew with bis ever
growing wealth bed anything on
Dunn’s plan for e new hotel whose
Income will build countless homes for
eitiiens who ere to coma to it in yean
to cons. Thu plan to simple. Not
even the California cat and rat farm
was simpler, and has the advantage
ad being as good in practice as R Is
in theory.
Here it is es presented to the beard
ef commissioners last night by A. L
Newberry, furniture manufacturer.
Who heeded a committee comprising
K. P. Davis, banker, Dr. J. R. But
«er ana secretary T. I- Uiddit »p
pointed by tbs Chamber of Com
merce to formulate plane through
which the town run build u munici
pally owned hotel;
“laeue twenty-year bonda for I1M,- '
000; cell the bonda; build a hotel In 1
the business district so that the low
er floor can be rented to merchan
dising concerns; rent the whole for
U0.000 a year; lay aside $6,000 far
interest on the bonds and $ 1.000 for
opboeg and insurance. The $$.000
rmeaining such your la to ba invest
ed In building and loan stock to be
•loaned to prospective boose builder*.
Then stead by and see It work."
That sounds like u simple thing,
but Mr. Newberry hue figures to show '
pert* toe bwGdtag*a^d*u^***'™ i
tows would own iu betel, the bonds
would bare been retired end the
whole income from the hotel property
could be devoted to further home
Dunn has made several attempts in
the last three years to build u hotel
iu keeping with Its modernity along
other lines Once, more chae half of
the atoek in a 1150,000 corporation
to do the bo lid lag was subscribed.
But pre-normalcy days descended up
ou the community whose members
bad bought heavily of gold-bordered
lithographs peddled by the fine fel
lows who journeyed here with an
atomistic motive to divide their
wealth among the common folk, and
all the wealth that remained was In
badly-secured botes and the surplus
of a low-priced cotton crop. The pro
ject wae abandoned and tho money
subscribed retymed to the ratmerib
Since then the matter hae been
very near at a standstill, although
several men have been, bore and at
tempted to Interest the people in pro
jeeta through which tho etttaeua would
pay half the cost of building but
would surrender, coctroi to the pro
moters These here net made much
of ea Impression.
Recently there was much talk of
emulating Warren ton, the town which .
builds about everything ft needs, in
cluding a hotel, threogb municipal
bonds. Mr. Newberry's Idee Is an Im
prove mtnt on the Warren Ion idea
end has been very favorably received
by these who have studied it. The
