Georgia Had First Cotton Hill in Soutb.
Charlotte, N. C., April 7.-After
corresponding with various parties
throughout the south, Mr. C. Bryant,
eeorctary and treasurer of the South
ern Cotton Spinners' association, finds
that the first eotton mill built in the
south stood on Georgia soil. He sc
oured a pieoe of wood from the old
struoturoand HM had a gavel made to
be used at tho next meeting of the
After traoing the early mills several
of whioh were built from 1815 to 1825
he heard of an early mill projeoted by
Mrs. Ramage on James isand off Char
leston, S. 'C., in 1787, >but after en
deavoring to get authentic history of
it found nothing could be found and
probably the projeot was never real
The first mill built was located on
Upton ereek, nine miles southwest of
Washington, Wilkes oouoty, Georgia,
fhe building was of stone, apparently
something like cobble stone. It was
sixty feet long, forty feet wide and
had two stories and a bab ment, and
, attio. The material waa brown stone,
with gray rook lintels over the doors
and windows and in the lintels over
the front door was out "Bolton, 1811/
indioating the - name of the arohiteot
and date of ereotion. This stone is
now in the possession of Rev. Frank T.
Simpson, c? Aonia, Wilkes county,
Georgia. Tho name of thc mill waa
Bolton Cotton mills, but it was gene
rally known as "Boltoa factory." The
inoorporators were: Talbert, Bolton,
Ball, Sherrill. Anthony, Hay and Ab
bott. They began with a capital of
$10,000 with privilege of inoreasing to
$15,000. Matthew Talbert, one of the
inoorporators was one of the governors
of Georgia. Fred Ball was related to
George Washington, Joel Abbott was
an eminent physician and Hay and
Anthony belonged to thc boat families
of the state.
Where the faotory stood was erect
ed, in 1794, one of Whitney's first
ginB, whieh was propelled by the same
water power that ran the mill later.
It was here that Lyon first oonoeived
tho idea of making the saw gin, a
great improvement on Whitney's.
The mill was torn down in 1842 and
all the wood material that was still
good was used in building a flour mill
whioh ia still standing. The foundn
tions of the ''Bolton faotory" are still
The gavel is made from a part of
one of the old rafters of the "Bolton
faotory," and carrying out tho senti
mental idea Mr. Bryant had it made
at the A. and M. college, Raleigh. A
silver plate will be engraved giving the
historical points of the gavel, whioh
will be formally presented to the asno
oiation at the next convention.
The Proverbial HI Wind.
The great cotton mill strike and
look-out at Lowell bids fair to con
tinue a long time, to oause immense
loss to both labor and capital and to
have a deleterious effect generally up
on ootton manufacturing in New Eng
land. While this is true, it seems to
be a oase of the proverbial ill wind
that never fails to blow good to some
body. The south will probably bene
fit directly and very largely by the
trouble at Lowell. The New England
ootton mill owners have for years past
been looking with inoreasing favor
upon the south as the best region for
The proximity of the eotton fields,
the smaller coot of fuel, the milder
climate, whieh at onoe makes the ex
penses of living less and the time du
ring whieh labor can be employed
greater-these are considerations
whioh weigh heavily with the eastern
ootton mill men and their effeot is be
coming steadily dearer in the compar
ative results of ootton tr \ investment
in the two seotions.
The labor question is also a very
important factor in this matter and is
becoming more and more so.
It has a specially strong bearing on
thc Lowell oase, for the trouble there
ia suoh as rarely arises in the south,
but? is beooming more frequent in the
north. Mill owners can calculate rea
sonably upon fewer interruptions from
strikes in this section > than they
would have to oontend with in any
Hoer part of the United States.
We are not surprised to hear that
?. namber of men largely .interested in
".Mon mills in New Englar^ haye be
tome oonvinoed that the conditions
or investments in their line are far
nore favorable in the south than in
.heir present location. Consequently
hese man havo decided to make their
uture investments in they' south,
lome of them will go to the extent of
emoving thoir nreeent plants to this
egion. Indeed, there is a probabili
y that several of the very mills at
jowell that are now in trouble will be
ransfer red to the land where cotton
;rows and where strikes and look-outs
ire very rarely known.-Atlanta Jour
