COTTON MILLS AND RAILROADS.
The hearing before the South Caro
lina Railway Commission of the rail
road magnets and thc cotton mill men
of the up-country last month, forces
upon thc commission thc decision of
a question of very great importance to
the entire people of the State, as it
bears directly on the rapid progress
now being made in manui'ature.
The question brierly stated is, Shall
the railroads be permitted to continue
to charge as high a rate of freight on
manufactured goods to Charleston as
to Pinner's Point, the terminus of thc
haul north, which is twice the dis
tance. Upon first consideration of
the plan it would seem that plain,
simple equity, independent of any de
tail of those particular benefits to the
people of the State, which go to make
up that equity, would force the com
mission to decide in favor of the mill
men: but the railways contend that
should they make the reduction, the
rate on roads outside of the State
would make a corresponding reduc
tion, which they would bc forced
to meet and the reduction would yield
them no profit. The commission is
asked to consider, uni arc considering
this line of argument, yet, so far as
the State of South Carolina is con
cerned, the argument has not ooc cle
ment of business in it, being at best
simply an appeal to sentiment. The
railway magnates doubtless proceed
upon the theory that the railroads
have been of great benefit to the State,
and the State should now show its
gratitude by allowing them to keep
rlosed their nearby port by discrimi
nating in favor of some other port
outside the State, because it keeps se
rene and in concert of action a combi
nation of roads which enables them to
earn a satisfactory profit.
The commission meets in about fif
teen days. What their decision will
be is uncertain, but there are quos
tions confronting them far-reaching
and of greatest importance in tho fu
ture growth and prdspcrity ol' the
State, and if by chance the railroads
win in this instance, it can be only a
question of a very short time till con
ditions arising from the development
of manufacture will force upon the
peoplo of the State the necessity for
the demands now mado by the mill
men to be granted.
New conditions now confront our
people. Only a few years ago-easily
within the memory of our business
men of today-the manufacture af
ootton was confined to Europe and thc
New England States. Cotton in An
derson sold at prices paid in New
York, less the freight. Within the
last few years cotton mills have begun
to dot every cotton raising State.
The mills of New England ore gradu
ally being moved to the cotton fields
of -he South. Anderson has kept
pace in tho manufacturing develop
ment and new conditions confront us.
The price paid for our cotton is based
u pon the profit to the mills upon man
ufactured goods. The item of freight
arises in manufactured cotton, not in
raw cotton. In proportion as profits
increase from a reduction of freight
on manufactured goods, tho mills can
pay a bei ter price for raw cotton.
Aside from this nothing, within
the limits of equity, should he.allowed
to interfero with the development of
the natural advantages of tho State.
Charleston bas the advantage ol' loca
tion to our mills, and it is only just
that the railroads bo forced to lix a
rate to this port proportionate to tho
rate they uow charge northward. This
done, the future prosperity of the
State is assured, lt will moke mill
building in the up-country more profit
able, lt will insure a better price to
our farmers for cotton. It will build
up tho port of our own Stale and add
millions to the property value of the
State, lt will give the railroads with
in the State a vastly larger amount of
business, it will make possible the
growth of Charil ston into ?i distribu
ling point for the State for nmst of
the articles of commerce now received
from oilier sources.
Nothing more encouraging to mill
building iii thc St ito could be done
than to give them the full benefit of
th(;? advantage of location to this
ne. by port, and nothing will eon
du^.. more to the general prosperity ?d'
These are the arguments of the mill
men. They aro ?n>i and equitable,
and bow the commission can see it
otherwise we cannot understand.
It was our privilege to spend tw<i
days at the State Fair in Columbia
last week and in point of attendance
the occasion w-s a big success. I n
fact, in this respect it was a record
breaker. The grounds were crowded
with people every day, and it was al
most impossible to go through thc
buildings and view the exhibits,
which were very good in every depart
ment. The utopk exhibit probably
excelled those of many preeeding
years. On Thursday one of the main
attractions wa? the game of foot ball
between teams representing Clemson i
and South Carolina Colleges, which
resulted iu a victory for thc latter.
Thc people of Columbia seemed to
have realized tho importance of this
annual gathering in their city, and
they, together with the local Lodge of
Elks, provided musical attractions for
the visitors. The railroads, too,
greatly aided in attracting the im
mense crowd there by granting ex
tremely low rates and running many
special trains from every section of
the State. Persons going into the
city on the midnight trains fouud it
extremely difficult to get lodging, and
some of then, when they secured a
bcd, were charged cxhorbitant prices
for it. Many, however, were forced
to spend the night in a chair in the
hotel lobbies or on the streets. Three
citizens of Anderson occupied one bed
about three hours in a room with nu
j furniture or conveniences, and were
I forced to pay l'y cents an hour for
that privilege. The crowd in attend
j ance no doubt exceeded Columbia's
I expectation, and her citizens did their
best under the circumstances to en
tertain every visitor. The people
looked prosperous and contented, and
everyone seemed to bc happy and in
their best humor. Now, if thc citi
zens of the Capital City will open
their purses, every year as they did
this year and should have done years
ago, they eau make thc State l'air a
big success every year, and be greatly
bene?ted financially themselves.
