DEQIN TO CANVASS
'or Stock Yards and a Refrigerating'
It Is dlsoouraglng to witness the
apathy shown by the moneyed men or
Han Antonio In the matter or raising the
amount of funds necessary to start the
stockyard ahd a refrigerating atatill.li-
ment. All that seems to be needed to
get these Important sohemes started Is
tne appointment or a committee ot en-
ergetlo men lo oanvass for slock among
our own citizens and the stockmen In
the western counties. W lb tbe Drone r
effort In canvassing there can be no
uouui dui inai an ine siock required
could be secured. Delay In this matter
Is rraught with peril to the future
growth and prosperity of San Antonio
aa stock yarns anu a reirigeraiing rao-
tory may be started at some other point
Cities must seize bold of and Improve
their opportunities. The stand-still
policy will certainly ruin any city that
adheres to It long enough. Push vim
nterprise unity ot eiiort ana liberality
are the only means of promoting the
growth and prosperity of cities.
San Antonio possesses unequaled ad-
vantages In the healthfulneas of her cli-
mate tbo abundance or her water sup
ply anu ner geograpnicai position as
the entrepot of tbe trade ot west
Texas and men of wealth will be In-
duced to make thilr residence
here. Let each citizen use every
possible eltort to improve and
add to the advantages above named
by fostering and helping every enter-
prize caicuiateu to augment me iraue
and buslnesaofSan Antonio and thereby
of adding to Ita population and wealth.
In case the city shall grow and prosper
every one of its citizens must be pro-
portionately benellted by the Increase or
business and the enchancement of the
value of real estate.
It goca without saying for It Is a self-
evident proposition that Ibe location or
a stock yard and a refrigerating factory
In San Antonio would be largely con-
ducive to tbe Inorease of her trade and
business and would demonstrate to tbe
worm tbe vim anu enterprise oi ber citi
zens and tnelr determination not to be
dlsianced In tbe race for Improvement.
ivnat naa Kept Aiianta in a growing
condition? Nothlngexcepttbe Indomit-
able pluck and energy of ber citizens.
Kansas city owes nor marvellous growth
to tbe same cause. Neither of those
cities are able to vie with San Antonio
In natural advantages.
1 would suggest that a committee take
the Held to canvass for subscriptions of
stock tor the stock yards and the refrig-
erating factory and that a correspon-
dence be opened wllh all the leading
tockuien in tne counties west or our
city requesting them to join In pushing
these enterprises forward. We must
make a beginning and the earlier this be
done the better for San Antonio
