Conclusion.


IN conclusion, let us sum up the advantages offered by our city to the manufacturer locating here.

First. The well known and excellent Cumberland Coal, at lowest cost, affording the great desideratum, cheap fuel. Secondly. To all branches of iron manufacturers, the abundance of the deposits of iron ore in our vicinity, the practicability of using so many of the best ores in the world at comparatively low cost; and the supply of limestone of good quality, plentiful and at low cost. To the manufacturer of steel hardware, etc., the advantage of good bar steel from first hands. For car and locomotive works, in addition to the advantages of cheap iron and cheap coal, our city can add that of cheap lumber also. For glass works, it offers the advantage of pure sand easily obtained at low cost. To all branches of manufacture it offers the inducement of extensive shipping facilities for both inland and foreign trade. Its proximity to a large and important port of entry (Baltimore), water transportation to all the great ports on the Atlantic coast, and its railway connections over two great trunk lines, all recommend it to the attention of capitalists and manufacturers generally.
Building materials, stone, brick, firebrick, lime, cement, and timber, can be obtained at prices which will compare favorably with those of any other locality. There are many sites suitable for large manufactories in the city and surroundings ; convenient to one or more railroads, or to water transportation, or to both. Any information in regard to the mineral resources, etc., etc., will be furnished, on application, by the undersigned
