Antic.son a Railroad Conter.
So far as tho railroad situation is
concerned, our neighboring oity of
Anderson seems to bo right in the
middle of tho road and is certainly
in thc saddle at this time. Whilo
tho Black Diamond's double-traok
sehemo was wild and visionary, tho
movement is eventuating in tho con
struction of a singlo track road from
Knoxville to Anderson and along to
tho coast. Very fow people wero
aware that tho groat Southern Hall
way magnates had their eyes upon
Charleston, and yet tho natives wero
as'onished when Col, Andrews wont
down thoro to spy out the land,
which resulted in the purchaso of
tho South Carolina and Georgia
property. Not many persons know
that thc Southern controls thc Cen
tral of Georgin, and is anxious to
make a direct Northern connection
for their Macon and Athens branch,
which can be dono by building from
Athens to Anderson, a distance of
only sixty miles, and thereby make a
oonneotion with thoir litio to Green
ville. This movement would estab
lish a through lino to tho North
through a portion of tho territory
now occupied by the Seaboard Air
Line, and every invasion of that tor
ritory only weakens tho most for
midable rival of the Southern.
But the most important, lino that
Anderson will get in tho near future,
and which seems at present tho least
probable, is tho extension of tho
Savannah Valley to the thriving
town of Kasloy, which will bo fol
lowed by the purchase of tho Pick
ens road, and this will in turn be ex
tended across tho mountains to
Cumberland Gap. The C. & W. C.
must htivc an outlot from Anderson,
and the line from Anderson to Kas
ley can bo built cheaper than any
line of its length in the State, as iL
will cross no stix un of nny conse
quence and run on a. ridge the entire
way. This is not all, however, that
is in store for our neighbor. Thc
Columbia, Newberry and Laurens,
which is now operated and con
trolled by tho Atlantic Const Line,
will be obliged to extend its sphere
of operations further up the country
Tho construction of a road from
Laurens to Anderson will neecssa
rily devolop tho magnificent water
power at Ware's Shoals on the
Saluda river, while Belton would
then bo on an almost direct lino to
Anderson, and Belton is to hav
$300,000 cotton mill in a very short
time, for whoso freight the Coast
Line would be apt to compote. This
is thc railroad situation as it appears
to us, and it would givo Anderson
outlets in eight different dirccttions
making it the greatest railroad con
ter in the State.
We are not a bit jealous of An
d orson, in whoso prosperity and
progress wo will always rejoice, but
it does seem a little queer that our
enterprising neighbor, which has
given less than any of the surround
ing counties for the construction of
railroads, should bo reaping such
harvest at tho olese of tho nine
toenth century. Twenty-five, year
ago Anderson refused to make
county subscription to tho Air Lino
Railroad, while Greenville, Bickens
and Spartanburg invested hundreds
of thousands of dollars to secure tho
road. "Everything comes to him
who waits," and Anderson is about to
realize the truth of this saying, while
Greenville is scomingly indifferent to
tho outcome of tho railroad agita

GKNKRAL BUSINESS OUTLOOK.
Tho Revolution Through Whloh We Aro Pass
Ino is WI<]0-RoHciiin|) In Its Inlluenco.
Riobard H. Edmonds, editor and
general managor of tho Manufac
turers' Record of Baltimore, is gene
rally looked upon us ono of the best ,
informod men in tho country on tho
general commercial status,
In discussing the general businoss
outlook for tho country Mr. Ed
monds said last night :
.'We have entered upon an era in
business and commercial affairs with ,
which there is nothing in all our
history to comparo. Tho revolution
through which wo aro passing is tho '
most wide-reaching upon tho world's
affairs that has ovor been known.
Before thc oivil war and after it,
even up to about 1890, wo wore busy
developing a continent. Tho opou
ing up to civilization of thc great
West, the building of about 150,000
miles of railroad, which wo havo
done in the last 40 years, th., crea
tion of our vast industrial interests,
now employing from 4,000,000 to
f),000,000 hands and turning out an- i
nually between * 12,000,000,000 and
$15,000,000,000 worth of products, :
or about four times tho total annual
value of all our agricultural products, '
wero tasks sufficient tn employ our
enorgy and capital. No other nation i
over made such a record, and wo :
may well afford lo boast of what wo |
"Hut what wo have accomplished
is only an indication of our future ?
Until about four or live years ago
wo were not counted as factors in
tho world's commercial affairs, ex- '
ccpt ns an exporter of grain, provis- i
ions and cotton. To-day wo are the
dominating power in the world's in- i
dust rial activities. Wo are fixing
tho price for every ton of pig iron ?
and steel rails which tho world is
consuming. It matters not how dis- ;
tant the country, nor how great tho
undertaking, American iron and i
stool set the prico which all other
producers must meet or else lose thc
"A few years ago we wero import
ing an average of about 1,000,000
tons a year of iron and steel. Now
tho conditions are reversed and wo
aro exporting as much as five years
ago we imported. Our bridge build
ers aro capturing contracts in Africa
and Asia ; our locomotivo shops arc
exporting almost as many locomo
tives as they are supplying to our
railroads ; our metal and wood-work
ing machinery makers aro finding an
ever-expanding market in Europe,
in the Orient and in Africa.
"These are new conditions. They
arc so revolutionizing in their effect
that we have scarcely had timo to
comprehend their full moaning.
Within live years we have become a
creditor nation instead of a debtor.
The balance of trade in our favor
the excess of our sales to foroign
countries over our purchases from
them during tho last three years
amounts to about $1,500,000,000. In
all our history we have been a debtor
nation to Europo until now, whon
Europe ?B largely in debt to us.
"We have had little or no part in
supplying tho world's demands for
manufactured goods, but now we aro
crowding our old world competitors.
ICngland stands amazed at our pro
gress and German iron makers lind
their own home markets invaded by
our p-*< 'uots. In 15 years England
has miiv io progress in iron produc
tion, hor \tput of 0,000,000 tons in
that timo being practically thc high
est point roached, whilo wo have
doubled our output and against Eng
land's 8,000,000 tons of pig iron will
this yoar produco 1?,000,000 to 14,
000,000 tons. Tho opening up of
Africa and Asia, tho development of
of great navies and the new uso to
which iron and steel aro being put
make tho world hungry for iron and
steel. Consumption ?B ovcrywhoro
increasing at a marvelous rate, and
until China in the distant future de
velops her iron and coal resources
the United States must of necessity
supply the greater part of this in
crease. Whether Chitin will over
become an important faotor in tho
world's iron interests need not con
cern this gonorotion.
j "In this mighty advance-the most
marvelous that tho human race baa
seen-an ad vaneo which must affect
the destinies of ovory country, thoro
may and likely will como halting
periods. There will bu timoK of ro
nction a? in tho past, but with tho
foroign inarkota opon to us it ie roa
sonable to bopo tbat our periods of
depression will bo less sovore and of
shorter duration than horetoforo.
Thc very magnitude and tlnanoial

In some respects Queen Victoria
is ono of tho most remarkable mem
bers of her sex. Pew women livo to
attain ripe old ago which she has
reached and to enjoy at four score
years tho montai and bodily vigor
which she enjoys. This is duo in
sonic measure to tho fact that she
has never allowed her royal cores to
weigh on her porenniai spirits with
undue heaviness, and that she has
faithfully endeavored to live up to
tiic koy-noto of that declaration
which she made moro than sixty-two
years ago whoa she said to tho Arch
bishop of Canterbury, on assuming
tho crown of England : "1 beseech
your grace to pray for mo." Some
may imagino that Queen Victoria's
royal duties ai \ light. But such is
not tho case They aro heavy enough
and many onough. Moreover, she
bonds under the burdon of manifold
griefs and sorrows ; but she bears
them with that spirit of patient
resignation which is by no means tho
least of her royalties.
Vast ohanges have como about in
tho world's progress since Queen
Victoria's birth. In 1819 steam
boats were still now upon tho At
lnntie, and locomotivo engines wore
yet unknown either in America or in
Europe. Since that timo both of
those gigantic agents of civilization
have been brought to thc highest de
gree of perfection ; electricity has
performed its manifest miracles in
speeding thc human voice under
neath tho waves of tho son, in light
ing cities with incandescent humors
and in operating thc spindles of
countless factories ; sewing machines
have saved thc eyes of countless
toilers of thc needle in both hemis
pheres, and cotton gins havo become
tho parents of one of the greatest
industries on tho globe. Of course
thoBO aro only some of tho most no
tablo achievements which science has
wrought during tho past eighty years.
To enumerate tho entire list is the
task of tho industrial historian. In
literature some of tho brightest in
tellects of modern times havo nour
ished during tho four scoro yoars em
braced within tho lifottino of Queen
Victorin. On this list aro Byron,
Mooro, Southey, Wordsworth, Ten

Dickens, Carlyle, Maoaulay, Thack

Mills, Bryant, Longfellow, Lowell.
