THE PROSPERING SOUTH.
Never in the history of the South has
her future looked so bright us at present.
Mineral nnd limlier lands have greatly
advanced ill value, and sales arc inaile
almost daily. Yellow pine IuiiiIht is lic
ing more extensively used every year, anil
prices arc improving. Many ol the mills
have nilvanced prices from one tn two
dollars K-r thousand feet of dimension
stuff. The demand for nil the Southern
hard woods is brisk nnd prices are, gen
erally siK'nkiiig, higher. The farmers are
almost entirely out of debt, proscroiiB,
nnd happy. There arc few mortgages on
Southern farms. The Southern towns
arc developing nt n innrvelous rate fas
ter, H'rhups, than ever known in nny
portion of this country. Small manufac
turing establishments arc springing up
all over the South, and in must cases arc
exceedingly prosHToiis. In short, there
is an increased activity in all branches of
industry, nnd the next ten years will offer
the greatest opportunities ever known
for making money in the South,

THINK OF IT.
NEARLY ALL HEARTILY ENDORSE
The Opinions) of Home or Hie Hus
lueHH Men on tlie Quuslloit
What Will Ihe Hoard Io?
When President G. S. Powell of the
Hoard of Trade spoke of being heartily
in luvor of a public park for Asheville he
echoed the sentiments of n majority of
the people of the city and certainly of all
of the visitors. A uumlicrof the business
men were seen yesterday nnd asked their
opinion. Ity far the greater mnjoritv
The park committee will report at n
meeting of the Hoard of Aldermen not
tar distant. The latter in appointing the
committee have shown that they too
favor 11 public park and it is not improb
able that some action towards getting
one in view will lie taken. A number of
the business men say it may not lie n bail
idea to select n site soon. Asheville is
on the boom, property is steadily ad
vancing in value, nnd it will be money in
the city's pocket to secure it now. It is
only a question of time when Asheville
will lie obliged to have a park, and with
the amount of money which would he
saved by buying it now it might lie litt
ler to take time by the tort lock.
The opinions are given below:
W, T. Reynolds Certainly there ought
to be a park here. So many visitors come
lo Asheville thnt there should lie a place
for them to visit.
A. T. Siimmcy There might to have
liecn one here a long time ago.
J. W. Cortland I always lmvcsaid and
say now that Asheville should have n
J. Ii. Rankin There is a great need for
n public park here, and I think the city
would do well to issue bonds.
W. li. Ilreesc Asheville w ill need a park
sooner or later, and 1 think the ground
should be purchased now before land
rises in price.
J. M. Campbell There ought to lie a
park here nnd I Ik-Hcvc in gelling the
ground while it is as cheap as it is.
Ii. C. Waddell I am not in favor of a
park, but think that fairgrounds and a
race track arc more needed than a park.
T. S. Keelor II certainly docs seem
right that we should have a public park,
and one ought to Ik bought before prop
erty increases in price.
R. I'inlav A public park waul I Is- a
good thing for the town, and I lor one,
am willing to pav t'le increased amount
ol taxes if it is found necessary to make
thcin larger in order lo get a park.
T.J. Kevcll Asheville ought lo have a
park and the sooner the belter.
II. N. Davenport Asheville most as
siiredly should have a park. I have
never seen a place of its size where there
was not n public park.
Natt Atkinson 1 am in favor of the
city having a park. If we are not a I'll
to get it any other way, lei us have
bonds issued to pay for it.
II, P. Arrington Asheville will eventu
ally need a paik and I thiol; it should lie
bought now before proHTiy advances in
J. P. Sawyer Asheville ought lo have
a park. I am in favor of getting one a
mile or two out of the city, to Is.- reached
by roil, and having a good view. Let us
get it if possible without issuing any
C. T. Knwls Why of course then'
night to be n park here, I am surprised
that one has not Isen made before this
and think it should he gotten before laud
gets anv higher.
J. II. Herring There might to Is.' one
in the city, nut i am not in invor 01 ex
H'iiding n great amount nf money mi it.
S. D. Pclhiini Hy all means let us have
a public park, A place where cveiybody
can feel free to go mid amuse themselves
nt nil times.
W. 11. Marx There ought to ! a park
here and I think it would lie lo the ml
vantage of the city to scnd coiisidcra
hie money on it.
J. M. Lorick Yes, let there Is; a park,
and if necessary, a great ileal of money
should lie expended on the place.
II. A. Limlsey I say there should lien
park here. Land enough a little out of
town could lie bought fur coiiipninlivcly
little money now, nnd it would lie a big
thing for the place.
W, II, Gwyn Asheville will certainly
need a park in the future, nnd 1 think
provision should Ih' iiiiiiIc now while
land is cIiciiikt.
J. II. Loughrun A park is n necessary
thing here, and if there is no other way
to get it let us issue boiuls to pay lor it
A. R. Coolcy Asheville ought to have
had n park long ago, and I think land
should lie bought now bcfirc the price
Thus. I). Johnston We should make
provision for the future, and I think a
park should Ik made while laud can lie
T, II. Doc No, there is no need of u
park here, and if one was made only
those living right at it would make use
A. C, Davis I say let the money lie ex
IKiidcd on our streets and sidewalks be
fore we build a park.
II, C. Hunt The streets need nttcn
tion worse than we need n park, but I
think it would be n good plan lo have
one if we enn afford it.
M. J. Ucnrdcn Uv all means Asheville
should have a public park. Let us get
one while properly is cheap.
Geo, Henderson There ought to be a
park here with a good drive or race
track. 1 am willing to pay something
more than the extra taxation that would
T.J. Ilnrgan It would be the biggest
thing Asheville could do, and the prop
erty should l)c purchased now, ns it will
soon be too high.
GOSSIP OF THE DAY.
'I have no doubt that the local agent
of the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelly to Animals will faithfully perform
his duties," said a citizen who is inter
ested in such matters, theother dny, "but
I want to Iks leave to suggest to him
that he bestow sjKtial attention upon
the cases of cruelty that take place when
ever the drivers of horses torture the
du'lib Vasts in their care by unnecessary
high cheeking, or by reckless and uncalled-
for healings with whips and even clubs."
The gentleman had the right idea. The
check-rein is a good thing to use in mod
eration, but when its use is carried to ex
cess, torture is a mild word to apply to
the siillcrings that nervous, high-spirited
animals must suffer liecauseof it after n
journey of any considerable length. As
lor the frequent use of whips and clubs
upon such u valuable and intelligent crea
ture us the horse, it cannot lie defended
by any sensible licing. The whip is occa
sionally n good thing to use, mid an
means of guidance to supplement the use
of the reins it is always proper to cm ploy
hoinu opathic dose's of whiplash. As for
clubs well, the fellow that would delili-
crati lv use one oil anv but the most de
termined, vicious and incorrigibly ugly
brute, and then merely to insure the
safely of life or p-oicrty, deserves almost
any punishment short of lynching.
There is, however, quite a strong temp
tation to make use of the check-rein. The
(',ossiR-r. like nearly nil other men, has
iildcn liehind well-fed nnd wcll-iiroomcd
horses of such marvelous and wcll-dcvcl-
iK-il laziness that unless the check wus
used the horses' heads were nearly on n
level wilh their knees. The judicious use
of n little checking isn't n bad thing; its
cruel and excessive use is, of course, an
entirely dilVerent affair. Perhaps it will
require a case or two m court, however,
to determine just where the line is to Ix
Irawn belwevn a reasonable amount ol
style nnd absolute cruelly.
If their own stories can lc liclicvcd
maiiv of the citizens ol Asheville have an
indomitable faith ill the future of their
own cilv. As one of them said the other
lav, he was putting into real estate nil
his ready cash, and all that he could beg
r borrow. There is certainly something
f a Ihioiii quality lurking about the place
it present, ami there's no apparent good
reason why the lncn who have planted
their dollars in the soil of this municipal
ity shouldn't dig them up later and find
their iiuiuIk.t increased very iierccptibly.
There's only one danger, and that is
iiule apparent to nil sensible coplc.
llon't follow the lend of the wild and
woolly boomer who tries to convince
the stranger within our gates that he
has at last found paradise. The man
who is going to settle in Asheville is go
ing lo live in a mighty pleasant place,
but he doesn't need a halo in order lo
gain adiuillaiKV to Asheville society.
Heaven is still faraway. It's all right
to brag about the climate, the scenery
the opportunities lor charming rules and
drives, the chances to regain lost health,
and all that sort of thing; but don't try
to daze and dazzle the stranger with an
extremely picturesque and xctic story
ol the excellent qualities of an ideal laud
that the iveoplc upon this planet ns yet
has never had the honor of beholding.
Sonic of the talcs which new arrivals
have heard about this favored spot arc
weird in their exaggeration, and there is
naturally a reaction that is hurtful when
ihe matter is investigated by the pros'
ieetivc purchaser. Take the new comer
out to any one ol half a dozen points of
vantage hereabouts; ht him gaze his fill
nt the scenery nnd inflate hi lungs wilh
Asheville nir; tell him what some of his
chances arc for making a dollar, if he is n
siKcnlatiir as well as a seeker tor residen
tial grounds; nnd then subsilie. What's
the use of trying to paint the lilv mid
;,,,p,,vi iiiiii'u ihe work, ol Providence?
