Mas a Chance to Take the fork Packing Plant at 60 Cents on the Dollar, There are troubles on the Emtiiets- ufg mind. T, J. Ryan, of pork pack- ng house fame, has notified the local itizena' committee that he will sell Liem Ihe establishment at 50 cents on he dollar of original cost. This offer, nexplatned, would not appear to be at 11 ominous. But it appears that in he original contract by which the Itizens secured Mi'. Ryan's buildings het'o was something inserted whereby t the expiration of five years he could xercise an option between paying ack $10,000 of the $20,000 given him y the citizens, and turning it over as ie now wishes to do. The citizens do ot want the buildings at CO cents on he dollar or at any other price. They would like to come within hailing dis- ;ance of the $10,000. Hence the tears, 'he Reporter in discussing the matter ays: The contract gives Ryan, at the nd of five years, the option to either )ay back $10,000 for the benefit of the itizens who subscribed it, or to accept 0 cents on the dollar of the money ex- )onded by him in its erection. He ow wants the subscribers to take he building off his hands and give him more for it than he ever put into it. He was not so exact in fulfilling that >art of the contract which said that he packing house should be an all-the- ear-round packing house, and should 30 in continuous operation except in ime of a panic, or a strike among aborers, plague or any other oonting- ncy of like nature. He thought he iad a loop-hole to crawl out in the ther contingency, and he took ad- antage of it, and did not operate it for ny length of time. He may not have made any money in the affair, but ertainly he was the cause of the itizens of Palo Alto county dropping he $20,000 in it. • : > .t- The E. 8, Ellsworth Farm.

An Unusual Mishap.
