PEOPLE GO WEST.

Frank R. Mosier of the M. C. R R., was talking over business affairs yesterday with his friend, H. D. Armstrong of Ann Arbor, traveling passenger agent of the Missouri Pacific railway, who happened to be at the Bancroft. Both gentlemen stated business was good, but Mr. Mosier added that the Florida trade was mach better this year. Asked for the reason, he said: "The hotels. Prices at the Florida hotels are so exorbitant, that even the very wealthy will not stand for them.  It is an ordinary affair down there to find a bill of from $4 to $6 taxed up, and the public will simply not stand it. In consequence, most of the winter trade is being directed to California, Until the hotels moderate, and the privilege of traveling by one route one way and back by another, with a few other concessions are granted, Florida is going to suffer." Mr. Armstrong added that affairs were much the same way in Texas, and hurting travel to that state. "The country is prosperous," he said, "but people will simply not stand for being robbed." --Saginaw Courier-Herald
