Newport News -as a Location.
There Is probably no bettor location in the United States for a cotton mill than
NewportNews. 1 he population of the town Is about 10.00, while atHampton and
surrounding points there are about 10 0 more, thus f nrntshlng an abundant sup
ply of good oporntfres. "Newport Nows bemt one of the largest coal shipping

furnishes abundant transportation facilities by which to draw cotton by water from

tbe world. "

Opinions of Leading Financial Men
on Cotton Milling in the South.
W. a Witbam. of Atlanta, who is president of twelre banks In Georgia and
Alabama: "Ilio average net earnings of several cotton mills I am acquainted with
will run to about 14 per cent. 1 bellove a cotton mill, with a fair working
capital, well managed, will make from 3Mto,33 percent- I, know of one whlcH
enrred 10 percent net in 1391. We advance moner on cotton mill stock, cotton
goods in storage, at a less rate than on any other collateral."
A. J. James, President of the Bank of Laurlnburg, Lanrlnburg, N. C: "There
aro eight milt? in this county. The protlt during thlsjear in ths cotton mills bust
ne s has boen and is stIU very large; tnat Is, it is from 10 to 33 per cent. I know of
nothing else in our section tnat pays so large a profit."
J. O Khea, Cashier City National Hank, t1rimn,Ga: -The Griffin Hanufactur
leg Company in 1SS7 paid a G per cent, dividend; in 1833, 10 per cent; and has
steadily paid 10 per cent, dividends ever since, and still carries a surplus of over 80
percent, added to its capital out of its earnings. In 188 J the Klncald Mill was or
ganized and put in operation. In ISn it itatd G per cent.; in 1893, 7 per cent.;
in 1S93, a per cent ; in la91, it) per cent; and In 1S93 it has so far paid 10 per cent."

The excise board has Issued a notice to
the effect that no applications for trans

The object of the board Is doubtless to re

LIMIT OF CONFINEMENT.
Replying to the argument that an officer
Is entitled to know the charges upon
which he Is arrested, Mr. Morrison said
that the rules proided that the accused
is liabl to confinement for eight days be
fore the charges are recited to him. If
his superior officer insists, he may be helc

knowing why be Is lit Id. Such are the
rules of the service. As a subordinate,

asked Judge Bradley.
"He is under command of the President,
and under the command of the Secretary
