VOL I.-NO. 50. PICKENS. S. C., THURSDAY, JANUARY9, 1902. ONE DOLLAR A YEA
A YXAR OF DXVEOPMENT.
The Progress of the United btatee
Never Equalled by any Nation.
Dun's Review of January 4, 1902,
has the following summary of the
progress made in a business way by
the United States during the past
Most marvellous of all the plieio
mnenal ovidenices of advancement in
business during the year was the prog
roes made in manufacturing. It is im
possible to be too extravagant in de
lineating the movements of the indus
trial world. Never in the history of
this or any other nation has such do
velopment occurred within the space
of a twelve-month. The expansion of
productive capacity was enormous, the
improved methods of work and or
ganization were conspicuous, wise eco
nomies were introduced, but more
than all other factors that made for
permanent prosperity was the conser
vative resistance to price inflation.
After the reaction of 1900 the level
of prices remained depressed for sonic
months, but gradually responded to
the increasing demand as excessive
accumulations were absorbed. From
a condition of glut there arose almost
a famine, greatly exaggerated by the
stubborn strike. Some idea of the
changes in size of supplies may be
found in the comparison of furnace
stocks of pig iron, as published in the
Iron Age, which amounted to 548,603
tons on January 1. These figures
steadily declined throughout the year
until only 223,462 tons were held on

current year's yield may not unreason
ably be expected to surpass seventeen
million tons. output of rails was be
yond all records, yet contracts for 1902
already assure another high water mark
of probably three million tons.
All records of output for hard and
soft coal were surpassed during 1901,
despite the scarcity of cars that re
tarded operations. A feature of great
advantage was the expanding move
ment, which reached more encourag
ing proportions than in previous years.
In ten months the Value of shipments
was $19,087,353, against $17,A20,864
the year previous. Coke ovens made
a phenomenal record, establishing as
new high water mark of weekly output
at 244,529 tons late in November.
While 1900 was the best year ever
experienced by domestic agricu!tural
intciests, the opening year of the new
century was in many ways more pro
fitable, and the two together have put
the farming population in much the
most satisfactory position in the na
tion's history. Formerly the season
of harvesting and crop-moving brought
heavy borrowing of funds at the East,
but interior conditions have changed
to such an extent that Western banks
are lenders at New York and Chicago,
and while there is still a large move
ment of money away from the East
during the fall months, it is of funds
that were held here for the account of
interior correspondents. There is a
steady teuidency to enlarge the acreage
sown in the leading crops, yet sup~plies
do not increase, owing to the better
demand both for home consumption
and export. Heat and~ dIrought caused
a serious curtailment of the corn crop,
which provu iLbU tu.st, important cycnt
