There is a strong probability
that a third cotton mill will he
built in or near Easley at an
early date. It is understood
that it is now up to the property
owners in the city and comuni
ty to show by their actions
whether they want it or not.
Mr. E. H. Shanklin, the popular
superintendent of the iEasley
cotton mills is the promoter of
the enterprise. He is doing
everything in his power to get
it up it is said and is meeting
with much success so far. Pro
vided he can secure a sufficient
amount of local capital, $100,000,
he has tho promise of enough
northern capital to finish and
equip a $250,000 plant.
The kind of mill he wishes to
build will be a duplicate of Glen
wood mill, 10,000 spindles and
350 looms. The mill is to be
'located just a short distance
west of where the Easley and
Pickens road crosses the South
ern railroad. It is an ideal place
for a mill both as to location and
convenience to the railroad.
