Light Plant and Oil Mill
Mr. L. E. McCormick, from Corsicana, Texas, was here this week looking into the proposition of building an ice factory, light plant, cotton seed oil mill, and grain elevator for Caddo. All of these propositions will be combined and in that manner can be operated at a considerable less cost than if they were separate, hence the dividends would be greater for the stock holders. Mr. McCormick stands ready to install the plants here and to take one half of the capital stock himself if the citizens of Caddo will agree to take the other half. It is a proposition that will undoubtedly yield a handsome profit to those who invest in it.
An enthusiastic meeting was held at the opera house Wednesday morning at which time Mr. McCormick addressed the citizens of Caddo and stated his proposition; a committee consisting of W. L. Cooper, D. McCoy, Amos K. Bass, J. B. Moore, W. F. Dodd, and P. W. Howe were appointed to canvass the town for subscriptions of stock and also to make selection of a site for the plants. There is strong probability that these things will be secured and that other good things will also be secured for Caddo in the near future. Mr. McCormick was driven all around the country surrounding Caddo and expressed himself as being highly pleased with the outlook. It will take a little boosting to get these things and now if YOU are a BOOSTER, let us hear you make a noise.
