FREE FACTORY S1TE8.
Donation of Land Not Thought to be
Tho Commercial club of Indlanapo
lis has tested pretty thoroughly the
plan of attracting manufacturing es
tablishments by offering freo land.
The scheme failed for two reasons.
First, the club was not willing to ac
cept free title to the ground contract
ed for, and, second, there were no
factories prepared to locate on the
terms offered. As to the first point,
It need not be discussed except to
say that the club believed tho title
to be perfectly good. It was unwill
ing because of its relation to tho af
fair as trustee to overlook certain
technical points that owners might
eventually find troublesome. As to
the second matter, it demonstrates
has passed tho small city stage.
The club did its whole duty in re
sponse to what was supposed to bo a
demand for free factory Bites. Thero
was much correspondence with firms
that thought they might become in
terested, but none of them was ready
to close negotiations. Tho business
men of Indianapolis supported the en
terprise by subscribing for enough
lots to pay for the land. This showed
their public spirit. A largo sum In
cash had already been paid on the
subscriptions. Some of tho manu
facturers naturally complained that
they could hardly be expected to
furnish factory sites for firms that
might become competitor. Evidently
there Is no call for Indianapolis
to furnish free factory sites. Many
concerns usked for subscriptions to
their capital stock, but few of thorn
wanted land. Tho enterprise as plan
ned and carried out involved much
labor nnd self-sacrifice on tho part
of certain directors of the club and
certain other business men who as
sisted thorn. Thero was also a con
siderable item' of expense which tho
club meets without complaint.
This effort will probably be tho
last of its kind In that city, and wo
think It Is just as well that tho mat
tor has boon tested and put to rest.
IndlanapollB is .destined to bo one of
the great manufacturing inland cities
of this continent. It Is already an
inland residence city of the first or
der, whore tho people own their
homes and follow tho pursuits and
chic virtues wbleli lead to prosperi
ty and happiness. They havo somo of
the greatest manufactories in tho
world. They also havo a largo va
riety of smaller factories. Tho best
way to bring now factories Js not by
offering land or even money, but by
having a' well-governed city, a low
tax rato and a fair policy for dealing
with all. Exchange.
