Made to Start Mill.
A meeting of the stockholders
of the Barnesville Manufacturing
Cos., as now constituted under the
reorganization, was held in the
City Hall Thursday last. The
interests of the property were con

features of the work to be done.

of that represented the following
board of directors was elected:
Messrs. E. Rumble, F. M. Staf
ford, G. L. Summers, J. L. Ken

man and Col. W. \V. Lambdin.

ing, the directors met and after
consideration of the conditions
existing, it was decided to elect
only temporary officers, which re

vice-president; Mr. Merritt M.

count of the present price and
scai’city of cotton it is doubtful
whether it will start before Sep
tember or October. The directors
are determined to start and con
