It i- nil taTinmctl fact thai nothing
would improve Sunbury much a
a wagon bridge across the river to
Snvder county. It would open up
as rich a stretch ol farming land OS
there is in I lie State. Farmers who
, . i i i . i
now attend ttie ivcxvisnurg, .-- 1 1 1 1 - -grove
and Milton market-, would
come to this city. Tin y would bring
their produce lu re and of course
spend their money here. The bridge
has beeii talked ol for many year
ami all admit the advantages. f
course the cost would lie large. Two
or three y ear- ago one estimate
placed the entire cost at ST'-',1"1".
Since that time iron lm advanced,
suit would be safe to place the cos)
There is a gi utleman in Sunbury
who sax - he xx ill build the bridge if
the sum ol $10,000 is subscribed hi
it, lie doc- not ask tin-money un
til the work is completed. All he
would ask for is that the money be
raised and deposited in one of the
hank-to he paid him when the work
is done. He says that the merchants
and property owners are all inter
ested in a bridge oxer the river as
much as they are in bringing new
industries to Sunlnirv.
In numerous cases money is rais
ed to buy ground, then why not on
the same principal give money out
right for a bridge.
i i i
eountv sale (jiute a sum cmini ne
obtained, and the next move of the
Board of trade should be to investi
gate thebridgsquestion. The gentle
man who makes the oiler has pro
perty in Sunbury, has money ami is
a reliable substantia! business man.
Noxv, here is a chance for the bridge.
The best thing for the least money
is sold at Brosius Brosiu?.
