Tho cotton mill industry tor tho

tothis date, an investment of eapital
amounting to $40,077,920, in exact
figures. Ol* this amount $3,880,000 rep

Only one other year in the history of
the State exceeds the present y eur in !
cotton mill building and that was the .
year 1900, when $5,410,000 was the capi
tal invested for the year.
Of the $40,577,927 invested in tho cot
ton mill industry in the State, Ander
son contributes ($?,000,000) eight mil
lions of dollars, nearly one-fifth of tho
entire amount, and this development
has taken placo within the last thir
teen years, or since IHN!?, when the An
derson Cotton Mills were built. When
to this is added $:S50,000 invested in
cotton Heed mills and fertilizer indus
try, $550,000 in electrical plant, includ
ing lights and water works, and $50,
000 in tho sewerage system just com
pleted, to say nothing of tho many
small industries of the city, Anderson
is at once seen to occupy a proud posi
tion in industrial development; and yet
every one acquainted with tho resources
of Anderson does not doubt for ? mo
ment that what has been accomplished
is but a beginning of what is to follow.
Tho cotton mill industry is rapidly
moving from tho East to the cotton
fields of tho South. This is as natural
ns that night must follow day. Cheap
ness of manufacture can best be at
tained in those sections where cotton
is grown. The New England mili?
cannot continuo to compete with South
ern milla with the item of freight en
tering into the cost ol raw material.
And those sections of the South pos
sessing greatest natural resources are
the sections in which this industry will
locate. Electrical power, as has brun
clearly demonstrated, is the great. ?J'ti
sideratum, and in this paltieular An
derson has a decided advantage. Lying
quite near thu citv and within tho bor
ders of tho County, aro resources, easy
of development, which will furnish 00,
000 electrical horse-power, enough to
run twenty-five mills of 25,000 spindles
each. The development of this great
resonrce is now under advisement by
those who can readily command nil thu
money needed for the purpose, and tho
beginning of this work will be the be
ginning of an era o? prosperity und
rapid growth of population no part of
thu Statu has uver seen.
