The present hotels are anything but, old, not overly sanitary and the accommodations are not sufficiently attractive to the traveling public to hold them here longer than necessity compels them.

The Argus heard the rumor of a new hotel several days ago. A local property owner has been approached by citizens seeking to interest him in the new hotel proposition. Considerable progress has been made with negotiations.
