THE CALDWELL NEWS-CHRONICLE, CALDWELL. TEXAS* JANUARY 2, 1903.
The city council at its last
meeting accepted the |>lan of
Architect Watson, of Aimtin, for
the new school building, and will
possibly make a few alterations
in the plans before the contract
is let. The questions of the lo-
cation is now the bugbear of the
councilmen, as several proposi-
tions are before t<bem on the
new location offered, as well as
some advantages to be gained
by building on the same lot.
The new location under con-
«¡deration is the property of C.
S. Williams just southeast of
Dr. Gorman's place. The block
is 300x300, and W. H. Hundley
owns 100-foot lot in same. Mr.
Williams offers his part for $550,
which is a very low valuation,
and Mr. Hundley offers his for
9200. Mr. Williams has also of-
fered to swap even his property
for the present location and
bouse, or to allow $300 cash for
the old building alone. There
is a question an to whether the
people desire the school house
moved and as to whether the
old building might not be worth
a great deal if the new one
were built on the same prooerty.
Altogether, it is a very knotty
problem, and the next meeting
of the council which occurs next
Monday night, will attempt to
come to some conclusion regard-
ing the different propositions of
Mr. Williams states that his
propositions will all be with-
drawn in ten days after the
meeting, as he has made a
special offer on his land, and
will not sell it for that after that
date, as there are several lots
spoken for at a considerably

The South Texas Collegiate
and Industrial Institute, which
is to be built by an organized
move among the colored people
of this section, is an institution
that could probably be secured
for Caldwell by a little work
right at this time.
The organization of the col-
ored people for this purpose
met first at Brenham, on No-
vember 27, and the second meet-
ing occurred in that city on De-
cember 20, at which meeting a
board of managers was ap-
pointed to secure offers for a
location and to decide on this
point. Offers are already before
this board from Brenham and
Irom Somerville. but several
members are in favor of locat-
ing the school at Caldwell, if
any advantages can be secured;
This is intended to be con-
ducted along the same lines as
the industrial work of Booker
j T. Washington, and for this
| purpose it is desired to get
j about 100 acres of land a mile
or two from town, on which to
erect their building and carra-
ón the agricultural and indus-
trial work. This school would
probably be quite an addition to
the business of the town, as
it is estimated that as soon as
fairly started the attendance
would average from 1<M) to 150,
and the average expense of a
student at school is never less
than $15 per month, making at
least $1500 to $2000 per month
in cash that would nearly all be
spent at Caldwell from students
alone, besides a great deal of
money that would be donated to
the school, and which would be °' ''l'u VVI" ,H" mo\ed

ness will be carried on by Sol
