1UDAY, NOVEMBER 1, iSSO,
. LEBANON MUST CO
f ''ORWARD! who can not, si mils
- Kit, PL'trojjvmle out' step backward. It
U tuo Into in the tidy now, to talk of
past mtatakt's or recriminate ou Mm
fu'nlta of others, we hove the litlUR
pitat with which to do; and wu
mihst Inert the resiwasihlUtlvB of the
flood tide that is on us.
Our towu is buil. ling faster Uiaii the
moat sanguine expectations of the
greatest vnlhuslast ; notwithstanding
over fifty residences have been built In
the past six months, ytit every house I
occupied uud in some houses there are
more than one family ; nono but a
croaker or a pessimist will gninsay n
btlll brijhter future, Now the one
preat question to our mind is, lww to
jrlvw employment, regular and con
Ktuut, to the toiling masses who win
bread by the smack of their sweat.
Emigrants uud home seekers expect
some means of regular employment
our lands are rich and cheap enough,
and everything is here to please the
eye and charm the prosjMjetor, but a
prudent man looks to something more,
"where ftru the toilers to gather?" We
must build factories we must have
more power to do it with. "The gods
liuip them that help themselves," and
if we waut capitalists to help Lebanon,
then Lebanon must first help herself.
There in plenty of money and brains in
Le!aaou to bring in the ditch, the
question K have w the enterprse?
Kolf interest surely demand our united
a.itt earnest effort.
Thi ditch when completed, will add
from o;e to three hundred prr cent to
real estate, will 'give -employment to
numbers and thus increase the volume
f trade. Every dollar invested will
pay a large dividend to the share
holder,!and will be the basis of a pros
perity undreamed of. It will then be
to the iuterest of the capitalist to come
and invest, and they will gather here
"like the eaglea to the carcs."
We call upon one and all "without
regard to race or color or previous con
dition,' agitate this question in such
:i way that action, ACTION ! will take
tlie place of twatlling talk. If Albany
can take her power from here and make
money by se.ling the power, surely we f
can accomplish as much with the water
at our doors. Who will show their loy
uky to Lebanon and receive the plaud
its of a grateful public by taking the
lead in this matter?
We solicit sugg stlons, plans or wel
come any move towards the accom
plishment of this one great enterprise
for Lebanon. More anon.
