Information obtained from Zeigler Directory
Compiled by H. D. Roe

Transcribed by K. Torp

At the present time two mines are maintained, the joint capacity of which is about fifteen thousand tons per day of eight hours. The pay roll of these two mines, when fully employed, amount to close in the neighborhood of Three Hundred Thousand each half month, the number of employees among whom the above amount it distributed about Twenty-five hundred.

Zeigler was incorporated as a city in 1914. The first man on whom the office of Mayor was conferred was Conrad Slavin, who shortly after his election was killed while at work in mine No. 1. The City next elected Conrad Mitchell as Mayor. William Hogan was elected as successor to Mr. Mitchell and held the office until May 1923, when A. C. Carr was elected Mayor. The present incumbent, Mr. C .M. Smith was elected in April 1925.

The Federal census in 1920 found Zeigler with a population of between 2300 and 2400, while the census taken in December and January 1925-26 found the residents to be 5,188.

Public improvements have been pushed and now the City proudly has about 28 miles of concrete sidewalks and about 6 miles of paved streets. The City recently built a fine City Hall at a cost of $40.000, and has purchased the most up-to-date fire engine.

The Zeigler State Bank and The First National Bank would be a credit to any city in the State with combined resources of over One Million Dollars. The City also boasts of two excellent Building and Loan Associations.

The City's educational facilities have not been neglected. Zeigler has three grade schools and one high school

The Public Press is well represented by the ZEIGLER NEWS and the ZEIGLER ITEM.
