Waters that shall return after Many Days j my list known stopping place Cresco our lenient liquor Laws not the Law but care not of those who believe in giving to make the Rich Richer especially when by so doing it will make the poor poorer. But when the surrounding circumstances seem to demand it we would do it us a financial investment for our Orin Benefit solely the same that we would buy a horse or a town lot if to thought to could see Money in it provided always that we had the Money to buy it with. While As we said we dislike the principle of continual gifts to Public enterprises from which there can be no direct and immediate return still the prevalent custom of the times is such unit without Liberal donations towns cannot secure either Railroad facilities or manufacturing establishments. If our particular town does not Seo fit to come Forward liberally and Aid in these enterprises some other neighbouring town will and besides losing the Benefit arising from their location we arc injured by a competing town securing them. Every town expects to to compelled to raise a Bonus to offer capitalists looking for locations in which to establish manufacturing enterprises and unless to accept Tho fact and act upon it we May be sure that Postville will not soon hear the bum of machinery or be crowded for building room. Unless we can secure some manufacturing interests hero the census and statistics of 1ss0 will show but slight improvement Over Tho present. We Are aware that Postville presents Many natural advantages excepting water Power for the introduction of manufacturing interests but not sufficiently marked to warrant capitalists in coming Here without encouragement when towns All around stand ready to hold out pecuniary inducements. We believe however that if we can secure one Enterprise like the one which is now offered to us others will follow of their own Accord and that in a f new years we shall be quite a Little manufacturing City. We have v Een asked Why to were so deeply interested in this last Enterprise As to sign More in proportion to our Means three fold at least than any Man in Postille ave will answer first we Aro Here to advocate the business interests of the town of our adoption and we believe far More in. The Potency of deeds than words. We subscribed no More than we believe every business Man in Postville ought to subscribe to insure the factory. Secondly we Are satisfied that with the feeling entertained by our men our own business cannot succeed unless we can add to it by bringing More business to our town. Very few of our business men Are willing to do but Little to support a Home paper and this compels us to use extraordinary inducements to increase our business to a paying basis. So far we have paid out much More Money than to have received and some of our friends have thought it necessary to economize As they have a perfect right to do y withdrawing their patronage at any time. We find no fault with such tout Only make renewed efforts to make Good out loss. For these reasons we stand ready to a Divide the first year s profits with Paob. And All business men who will come Berend build up a business thus aiding not Only us but every Man interested in the growth and Prosperity of our town. Mrs. Beecher writes to or. Bristow of Des Moines that it is very doubtful if Henry Ward can fill any lecture engage stents in Iowa the coming fall. It s too Bod All Hawke Odom Are longing to Jay the Groat nes hider $500 a night of n a Little True Iowa. I drop this line not for the Spe its enforcement.
