Foss announces that work is to be begun immediately on the construction of a $5,000,000 cotton mill in East Boston. For more than a year this project has beeit held in abeyance becanse of tho business stagnation. It is expected that this factory will make Boston a textile centre, competing for trade with Lawrence, Lowell, New Bedford nnd Manchester. Its 250,000 spindles and 7,500 looms will bo operated by 8,000 workers. The mills, weave sheds and power station will. cover sixty-five acres of land fronting on the Chelsea river. The land has already been purchased. "I'm a great believer in spinning cotton on this side of the Atlantic, and I desire to see Boston made a great textile centre," Mr. Foss says. "We have paid too much attention to exporting raw cotton to England, where our finest textiles come from, and not enough to producing high grade manufactured products.
