The city now has another oppor
tunity to widen its streets, or what
is better to open another street and
secure some more public square.
The whole of he burnt district on
the right of the street leading to
the depot should belpng to the city
and now is the time to acquire it.
If this cannot be done the street
leading from the Crotwell hotel
should be extended through the lot.
and under the\!railroad to Gauntt
street thus giving a roadway to the
fireight depot of the, Southern with
out going over a grade crossing. It
would add greatly to the appear
ance of the city from the railroads
and add much to the value of the
property fronting the square. We
hope the city council can make
some arrangement before the build
:ing operations are commenced. In
the meantime the concil should not
overlook the opportunity to widen
Friend street before Mr. Scott be
ginsthe wor,k of erecting his brick
buildings. A few feet to th street
would add.much to the convenience
of the public.
CAROUNA MAU-ACrURING C.
We hope the Carolina Manufac
turing company will decide to starl
operations again soon. Such en
terprises are worth a great deal t<
the community. A pay roll o:
$1,500. per month will be greatl:

ment and will have to seek home
It should be rebuilt on the rail
road somewhere off the publi
~square. Our business men shoul
take additional stock if necessar
and see that the plant is rebuilt. ]
no dividends were paid the benef
to the community would be a sufi
cient dividend to warrant the i1
vestment. It may be that the stoci
holders will rebuild without any at
' ditional stock. In and event s
would be glad to know that t1
*plant was to be rebuilt at once.
