WEDNESDAY, MAY 21, 1902,
Tlie New Colton Mill.
A talk with Mr. J. A. Brock aud Mr.
U. E. Ligon developed the facts that
the work of erecting tho new $500,000
cotton mill will probably begin within
the nest thirty days.
The capacity of the n tit will bo not
less than ?0,000 spindles and 700 or 800
looms. There will also be in connec
tion a large dyeing and finishing plant.
The class of goods to ho manufactured
will be different from any manufac
tured in this section heretofore. They
wJIl be ginghams, madras ami dometts,
or flannelettes. This will be a new de
parture, but by no means au experi
ment. Tho experimental period has
been passed; our industrial develop
ment is ripening into rapid progress
and this departure is ?juite natural.
The machinen' to be used will not
differ materially from the machinery
used in tho manufacture of sheeting
except in the looms. These will be
quite difierent, and, ol course, the
goods produced will be in colors.
The mill building will probably be
two stories only, and with the dyeing
and finishing plant and the IV" cot
tages to be erected for the operatives,
will cover about seventy-live acres of
ground. The location has not been
definitely decided upon. The advan
tages of several locations are heiug
discussed. In all probability the loca
tion selected will be along the Blue
Kidge Kai h oad between the Anderson
cotton mills and the Cox mill. This
property belongs to Mr. H. E. Ligon
aud contains IMG acres. It Is a very
desirable location, both in point of
healthfulness and shipping facilities,
and it is understood that Mr. Ligon is
offering it very low. While her? for
the purpose of securing tho conn act
foi drawing the plaits of the mill, Mr.
C. IL Makepeace surveyed this prop
erty, but it was \ olvntary on Ins pui r,
v? :t view to Raving expeu.se in the
!.: tl lis location was decided upon,
-..cured the contract for thcengi
..-ork and Iiis assistant, Mr. Bib
<MM.-nein, of Spartanburg, will have
charge when the work begins.
The power used will be steam. This
is due principally to the fact that sufii
cient electric power cannot be furnish
ed by the Water, Light and Power
Company in addition to furnishing the
Anderson cotton mills, Orr mill nnd
the many minor industries of the city.
A commission to organize has been
granted by tho Secretary of State to J.
A. Brock, IL E. Ligon, N. IL .Sullivan,
J. E. Barton, Geo, W. Evans and IL S.
?Ligou, in pursuance of which the books
of subscription were formally opened
in the Court room yesterday and will
continue open at the Bank of Anderson
until our people at home, desiring to
do so, have had an opportunity to sub
scribe to (lie stock. Of lhe 8000,000
capital it was decided that ?lOO.OOOor
more should be furnished by people
here, and this is being very cheerfully
done. The remainder of the capital
stock is in easy touch of Messrs. Ilrock
and Ligon when our people get
The name decided upon for the mill
is "Brogon" cotton mills, the word
"Brogon" being formed by a combina -
tion of th? first three letters of the
name Brock and last three letters of
the name Ligon. This was suggested
by many and appears quite appropriate.
While North, Messrs. Brock aud
Ligon visited several large concerns
that furnish mill machinery and are in
a position to close promptly and with
out additional expense contracts for
all needed machinery.
Every detail has been carefully look
ed after by these thorough business
men and the beginning of work is only
a question of a few weeks at the out
At tho meeting of tho subscribers of

day, a majority of stock subscribed be
