A Rumor for some Days past has been current to the effect that the Bessemer steel company contemplates rehabilitating its Plant Here or some portion of it and starting up in the near future.

The gentleman stated that nothing definite could be announced at this time but he made no secret of the fact that there Are plans on foot looking to a new equipment for the Plant and a resumption at no Distant Day. All this however depends. In the interim since the change in management and under what is practically a new Board of directors much careful investigation has been Given to the question As to what could Best be done with the works. The new management does not feel that its whole duty would be done toward the Stock holders by simply liquidating the business. Sometime during the month of March a meeting of the Stock holders will he held when plans the result of investigation and consultation with experts will be submitted looking to the expenditure of considerable Money in new equipment for the pm amp it and resumption of operation along lines which give reasonable Assurance of sati it factory dividends. It is of , conjectural As to the outcome of the Stock holders meeting As there seems to be considerable feeling in certain quarters in favor of a distribution of at least a part of the Cash assets. Should a Cash distribution be insisted upon it was explained that it would operate fatally against the plans the management has in View for starting up As there would not be sufficient left for new equipment and a proper working capital. Another feature of the project to be submitted to the Stock holders in Case they decide to favor a resumption along lines to be indicated will be a reduction of capital Stock to such a sum As will More nearly represent the assets of the company in real and personal property. I it Uch a reduction of capital Stock it was explained will not militate to the disadvantage of any Stock Holder because it will be a pro rata reduction in the number of shares Only. The Cash assets and other available assets of the company convertible into Cash at Short notice it was stated is not much less than $4uu,000.
