Steps Being Taken by Men of Mtraoy to Invest in Such an Institution In Decatur. The other day there was a short paragraph in these columns in reference to another important manufacturing industry that may soon be established in this eity, and what is equally important the, articles to lx put up here are the inventions of a Decatnr citizen, Alderman W. H. Bramble, the well-known inventor and patentee of the celebrated Bramble Locks. The matter of manufacturing the Bramble Locks in Deeatur has been under dL-».iis- aioii amont; men of money in this city for several mouths, and we are pleased to state that the enterprise is now assuming shape. A company with a capital stock of §13,000 to 820,000 is to be formed, whose memljers will be D. S. Shellabarger, A. T. Hill, D. W. Brenueiuan, E. P. Lytle, 3. W. Haworth, D. H. Hrilman, K. E. Montgomery, K. II.Roby, K. Hanvood J. A. Close and C. L. (rriswold. A meet- in.!,' of these gentleman was held last night in tlie city hull, when the whole matter was talked over, and a committee appointed to secure a desirable lot-atiou for a factory, and report at a future meef- iiik'. Thete are now27 ditlerent styles of the Bramble locks on sale in difVerent parts of the country. These were made at Xew Britain, Conn., bnt if the Bramble factory is established iu Decatur of course the Connecticut firm will lose the contract, ft may be that the gentleman named above will decide to put up a building in this cit\ in which to manufacture the lock-. The greatest expense involved iu this enterprise will be in th" purchase of suitable machinery, and when t h a t is P'oeuivd the work of niakiuf; the Bramble locks in ]eeatur will be nn easy matter. Skilled workmen, with years of experience, can be secured from the factories in thcwiKt, and we have no doubt but the veiy men who have been ninkiiifj the Bramble locks can be induced to come here and enter the employ of the nccittur company. There is no good reason « h y these celebrated locks, which are in general demand throughout the eountn, cannot be made iu Decatur just as cheaply and perfectly as in (lie east, and that there will be big money in the new enterprise for the gentlemen now at the helm, there cannot be any doubt whatever, \Vc understand that Mr. Bramble has five or si\ other designs of locks which have not yi t been maunfaetureJ. Tine Bloomingtou Paitttir/nijili of Friday printed the following paragraph in reference to that celebrated case in which more or less interest is felt by residents of lecatur: "Up to last evening there was nothing new in the Ilofl'man caF'c. No legal steps have been taken on either side.
