FULTON, S. C., October 10, 1887.
There is, perhaps, no place in
oath Carolina containing such a
-alth of timber as the Santee Swamp,
d e:"necially in north-western Clar
There is littrallv a boma in the tim
er interests of Fulto~n, at present, and
2ie sagest of our citizens predict that
~on this uine of wealth will be util
~ed: The largcst luinber companies
niorth~ern cities have frequenly sent
i..r represenutatives out to inspect
ud my.otiate for this territory. These
entemen have candidly admitted its
reat value, but the head and front of
he difficulty has been to decido upon
be means of itransportation, and the
eluctance of speculators to invest the
ncrmnous amount necessary for the
nitiatory steips of manufacturing.
ievral plans were suggested, but
one seemed to obviate the many dis
dantages. On aceount of frequent
eshets it is impossible to put the
eessary machinery in the swamp,
nd as most of the timber will not
ot, the plan of rafting it down to
he mouth of the river and there mill
ag it is untenable.
Mr. Jordan, of the wealthy firm of
ordau, Reed & Macy, proposes a
an to surmount these difficulties,
rhich is as unique as it seems practi
able., It is to equip an immense boat
rith all the fixtures of a large saw
ill. and laun::h it upon the river,
lying up and down the stream at
heir own sweet will. Tram roads
rould be built all over the swamp
hih would haul the timbe: 'a the
-aious moorings of the hoating mill.
'he merchantable lumber would then
e loaded upon large barges pulled
y steam tugs to the mouth of the
iver, where the company intend
uiling a mammoth wharf. Here
e~ssis will be waiting to receive and
arry it to market. Of courso during
he inundation of the swampi the tia-un
-~v would have to be adanmdoned un
l the rater subsided. TI he floating
nil, however, could not be cffected
y the caprices of high or low water.
Mr. Jordan is imkin-z a tour of the
ctire swamp, and will reach lower
Jarendon thlis week. He has made
ome hugh "deals" in timber hands in
ershaw and Richliand coun~ies. It
also Linted that one of the most ex
ensive land owners here, has :.ade a
ale of 6,000 acres. Mr. Jordan is one
f the most affable and reined gentle
non I Lave ever met; his terms are
a uch more liberal than any- oferel
aitherto, and -if the timber owners dis
ose of their interests to any one, I
arediet that Mr. Jordan's company
vill control it. They are not a coterie
>f Easan's. however. who will sell their.
irth right for a mess of potage. Mr.
ordan hopes to perfect his arrange
nents within the next sixty days, and
put 1,000 men at work. Verily, there
.s a boom.
