For obvious reasons names oan uot
>e used, but it may be stated that the
;entlemsn who writes from Knoxville
s in a position to know what ho is
alking about-and does know aB a
natter of faot.
His letter given tho ioformation,
whioh has been known to a numbor of
poreons in Anderson for some time,
-hat tho Southern railway has oom
.noticed building its lino from Knox
ville to Bushnell, with tho intention
)f building on to Walhalla without I cc
stopping, BO as tc connect with the | di
Blue Ridge road.
The letter, with tho ommission of ul
,ho names, is given bolow: A
"I have your letter of tho 23rd inst. 01
"It appears to mo that wo people in tc
Knoxville know moro about the futuro m
prospects o' Anderson than do thc peo
ple of Anderson themselvoB. Today, [t
Anderson is a place a good deal talked 8<
Etbout in Knoxville, for it is to bo tho S]
Srst largo town out of Knoxville on H
the new road now building, via Bush- ai
oeil, N. C., by the Southern railway, \x
whioh will be a main line from Chica- g
go and Ginoinnatti to tho Southeast Q
and to Florida, and the finest trains fi
and the bent grades will bo had for *
that line. As far as Bushnell, the b
line ia now under rapid construction, z
and as soon as rails are laid to Bush
nell, the other end will be begun. The v
hardest part to build is from hereto a
Bushnell, and they are building that fc
first so that material can bo hauled 0
over it for the construction of the end r
from Bushnell to Anderson, whioh is
a river grade with tho exception of a
few mileB ne&r your end. When they
begin the other end, they will work
from either end, and meet, but moot
of the material will como from this di
rection, as the big shops ire here, and
the oontraotors and foroos all live here,
and have their main offices here. There
are several thousand men now at work
between here and Bushnell, and judge
ing from the very high wageB paid the
laborers, and the number of oar loads
of blasting powder and dynamite that
they are using, you would think that
they are certainly pushing the work
aa fast aa they possibly oan. The
Southern railway needs thia outlet for
their business at once, aa their line
via Ashvtllee ia now so full of trains
that a passenger train can't make time,
and a freight .train from Knoxville to
Ashoville is generally from ten to fif
teen boura late; all this delay being
duo to getting psst other trains.
This odngested oondition oan only
ba helped by the new line via Bush
nell and Anderson, ?and "hurry up" is
the word. Host of the business that
ia the oause of this over taxing, origi
nates in this section. On this aooount,
the Southern railway is today refusing
to aooept business from coonee lions
whioh they cannot handle, but whioh
they will ne alad to get when the new
route is completed. Nov? if any one
doubts what I have said in this fetter,
t them confer with the office of the ?
iperintendant at Knoxville, or any
her high official who iain position to
now. There being already yery large
?ops at Knoxville that can handle re

"It io estimated that there are enj
oyed on the Knoxville division of
ie Southern railway about 8,000 men
every capacity, aod tho majority of
tose men are paid the wages of skill
I laborers, as well as wages of oon
ictors and engineers.
So it maybo seen that whatever pop
lation this new division will add to
0 derron, will bo of a better paid
ass than its employes of cotton fao

uko Anderson's new population.
