Otto Huber, a Representative of the American Silk Co., Visited
the Mill for the Purpose of Getting Information Concerning
the Plant and Supply of Labor.
FOUND ALL THINGS FAVORABLE FOR STEADY OPERATION
Thursday of last , week Otto Huber,
superintendent of the Mnnaroh Bilk
mills of the American Silk Company at
York, Pa., visited Reynoldsville for the
announced purpose of ascertaining the
real condition of the Reynoldsville silk
mill, owned by his company, the com
parative cost of operating It, and the
possibility of securing enough employes
to run It full capacity. It Is said that
reports very detrimental to Reynolds
ville and the local mill had been cir
culated In official circles of the company
by persons hostile to the town's Inter
ests, and when the recent Bhake-up oc
curred In the company, resulting in the
election of an entire new board of di
rectors, with a new president, the new
officers, none of whom bad personal
knowledge of local conditions, decided
to send here, to investigate fully, one
of their oldest and most experienced
superintendents, a man who has spent
his life amid the rattle of looms and
-spindles and is familiar with laoor and
commercial conditions in many local
ities. When Mr. Hubor arrived he went to
the local mill where, In company with
the superintendent in charge, P. F.
Bolger, be made a most thorough ex
amination of the mill and its present
equipment, of its fitness to run and of
Its accessibility. The records of the
mill from the start were examined,
showing eight years of successful oper
ation. After seeing all, Mr. Hubor had
no hesitation in saying that the Reyn
oldsville mill Is one of the best and has
the most modern equipment of any mill
owned by the company, and that the
mill's physical condition was superb.
It will be remembered that many thous
ands ot dollars were spent in re-equipping
this mill less than two years ago
and Its Interior presents a surprisingly
clean and orderly appearance.
In the afternoon Mr. Huber was tak

RESUMPTION OF WORK AT SILK MILL
en in charge by officials of the Reyn
oldsville Business Men's Association
and an effort made to show him Reyn
oldsville In its true light. A carriage
was secured and In company with
Mayor Jarvls D. Williams, P. F. Bol
ger and the secretary ol the Associa
tion, Mr. Huber traversed the main
streets of Reynoldsville, and West
Reynoldsville and over the fine stretch
of brick paved road to Prescottville,
Rathmel and Blooralngton, and after
wards to Soldier to witness the large
coal and coke operations. Along this
route Mr. Huber bad excellent oppor
tunity to note the large population from
which to draw help and to observe the
trolley lines which would bring labor
from many otheroutlying suburbs. Re
turning to Reynoldsville Mr. Huber
met and personally questioned almost
half a hundred leading business and
professional men, as well as old silk
mill employes, gathering a mass of in
formation relative to the labor supply
and local sentiment regarding the mill.
As to the latter, he found the community
practically a unit in promising sincere
In tabulating his Information Mr.
Huber discovered that the cost of
freight transportation was about half
what It was supposed to be by the offi
cials; that express rates to Reynolds
ville from New York were but little
more than to the mills at York; that
the opening of the New York Central
trunk line would greatiy reduce the
time required Tor transporting silk to
and from New York; that fuel could be
secured at from one-third to one-fourth
of Its cost in the east: that the local
mill could draw employes from a pop
ulation of fifteen to twenty thousand:
that the Reynoldsville mill could be
started almost at a day's notice, so far
as physical conditions are concerned:

Important Project Was Made
Public at Meeting Of The
Association Last Night.
One of the most important projects
ever conoolved for the benefit of Reyn
oldsville people was first made public
at a meeting of the Business Men's As
sociation last night. It was an an
nouncement from Dr. J. H. Murray,
the specialist, that if the lodges and
other beneficial organizations of Reyn
oldsvtlln would guarantee active sup
port, in a manner outlined by him, he
would erect and maintain a hospital
In Reynoldsville for the medical or sur
gical treatment of all non-contagious
diseases. The outline of the plan was
presented to the Association; by the
secretary, by authority of Dr. Murray,
and In the free discussion which fol
lowed it was evident that the members
fully appreciated the benefits which
would accrue to Reynoldsville through
the establishment of such an institution
and looked upon the proposition as one
worthy the support of the public. If
established it would seek the co-operation
of all the physicians in Reynolds
ville and vicinity and all would be per
mitted to treat their own patients in it.
Aside from the added prestige It would
give the town, it would permit better
treatment and care of local patients
than is now possible. It would also
be the means of bringing into the town
about $15,000 annually which would pass
into the regular channels of trade.
The project was considered worthy
the consideration of the Association
anu upon the motion of Bell, seconded
by Williams, a committee of five was
appointed to confer with Dr. Murray
and ascertain the best method of pro
moting the project along lines which
would secure barmoniouB oo-operation
of all interests conoerned. President
Caldwell appointed the following mem
bers on the committee: Mayor J. D.
Williams, H. Alex. Stoke, S. M. Mo
Crelght, J. W. Gillespie and E. Neff.
This commiteee will act at once and
upon their report further aotion will be
taken by the Association.
The Association bad a rattling good
meeting last night and many were
present. The president of the town
council was present and took part In
a lively discussion concerning the
oleanlng of Main street, in which he
gave the oounoll's side of the case and
the difficulties Ithey had to contend
with. The mayor spoke for the bus
iness men and citizens and when the
dlsousBlon dosed there was a better un
derstandlng all around. If the citizens
and officials would get together oftener
in this way it would make for harmony.
A discussion of local ordinances
brought out the fact that many are
practically worthless. On motion the
secretary was Instructed to send to the
council a communication expressing
the sense of the Association that the
business and civic interests of Reyn
oldsville demanded and early and com
plete revision of the ordinances govern
ing the borough.
