S[~altillanre Atlanufcturer's HIerord.]
As noted In the last issue of the Alo.a
ufacturers' Recotd, 1889 was a year of
e much prosperlty among cotton mllls,
d North as well as South, and 1880 prom.
it lees to show equally as good results.
It Fall River mills are sold ahead of pro.
" ductlon to the extent of 1,700,000
r' pieces, with deliveries extending Into
'e May. Lirge dividends were paid, and
t there was a decided Increase in the
d market value of stocks. In this line a
91 number of Southern mills whose stocks c
are quoted on the markets, made a
1 fine showing, and holders doubtless
' feel well eatislied over the rise in vael
ut aes. The Clifton Mantufacturlng Com
pany'a stock was quoted at $105 in
' 1887,$132 in 1888,jand is over $140 now, a
e probably $145 to $150, an increase
of about 40 per cent in two years in
Saddition to the good dividends receiv. 1
d ed. Granltevillo rose from $125 in
1887 to $145 in 1888, and is $150 now;
'e Pelzer from $102 in 1887 and $110 in
Il 1888 to $1483'i Langley from $95 in
r 1887 to $109; J. P. King Manufactur
a ing Co. $90 to $10.1; Sibley $85 to $.S,
e and Enterprise from $80 to $55.
These are good illustrations of the
e improvement in the vaine of Southern
r cotton mill property and indicate what
i* well managed Southern mills can do
n in the way of earning good profits.
