Sole Dray Line in the City

A.M. White Merges All Such Business of the City Into One Large Concern.

Many Horses and Men Employed

Has Just Bought Leamon Transfer Line and Possesses Forty Teams, and Wagons, and Has Large Corps of Assistants.

A.M. White, who recently purchased the entire business of the Baker Transfer Company, has just completed a transaction by which he also becomes owner of the Leamon Transfer line.

Mr. White, who has always been the leading transfer line owner in the city, now has every business of the kind in the city, in his possession and will conduct all of the dray business which the city has. This combined with the entire freight service of the town will give him an unusually heavy business.

With about forty teams and wagons it is not probable that Mr. White will be unable to handle his large business with the aid of a large corps of under workmen.

Mr. White has fine office quarters, and Miss Spayde, who has been doing the entire office work and collecting, will remain in the office and Miss E (there is a letter missing between these two: E a) Colwell will be employed as collector.

Mr. White’s many friends will wish him all success in his new undertaking.
