Onco mon* wc cull upon thc
thinknig men of Laurene County,
und especially of the town of I .mi
rons, to stop; look matters squarely
in the face and rise toaetlon. The
cotton factory to be built at Moun
tain Shoals is a matter of tho great
est concerti to t hi* place. Asa cot
ton market alone, wo can prosper;
but to have thc trade of that flour
ishing section around this factory
taken from us, will'be felt by'every
business man. Year by year wc
aro being surrounded by factory
towna which aro growing prosper
ous, while they.drawjthoir lifeblood
from tin's county. Will it ever be
thus? Will our men of means-,our
substantial business men, sit dowu
and allow their property to depre
ciate, Ttheir business to fail and
their town to dry up? if wo allow
thc cotton trade to bc etlt up and
distributed to all the towns around
us, wc must not expect a healthy
commerce, or prosperity in any di
rection. For a few weeks it really
?cerned that our people had awak
ened from.thoir stupor and realized
thc situation and made an effort to
master it. One would have thought
that the cotton factory for Laurens
was an assured fact, but the bubble
soems about to burst. It looks ns
though those who rose with most
lusty shouts have been first to fall
into silence, and tho whole matter
now appears to tho publie as a
dream, thc child of a sickly imagi
nation or tho production of indiges
Even now, the growth of factory
towna around us can be turned to
advantage. We can maKo these
fcodors if only we turn our bands
towards improving our cotton
market. Laurens is favored in lo
cation, our railroad facilities are
unsurpassed in this section, and all
wc want is a start in the direction
of manufacturing enterprises.
Just think ofit! In two weeks
Kl XT Y THO USA XI) DOLLA RS
were subscribed to a factory for Lau
rens, and yet for want of a leading
spirit who had tho nerve and pluck
to hold on', the enterprise, failed
to grow to completion! Lotus all
make a desperate effort-a long
pull and a pull altogether-to build
this factory, and then the grand
possibilities before us will bc reali
It must he acknowledged that
tho views of Secretary Lamar on
"Southern Progress," which wo
printed last week, however unwel
comed, ore to a groat extent true.
We know that while there aro
signs of tho greatest prosperity in
some mining districts and especial
ly tho cities contiguous, yet thc
great mass of people, those who
constitute the South, have scarcely
been fanned by this wave of prog
ress. Tho great trouble with this
country to-day; the reason why we
are not more prosperous, is because
the Southern farmers have never
learned to make ti dime. They strive
to make dollars. Our people must
learn there are other ways to make
money besides planting cotton.
They must realizo that it is not
work alone, but thrift, frugality
and judgment that ls needed. Our
people must catch on to some of the
"yankee tricks." Of course honesty
and fair dealing is essential, for no
deception ever pays, but thoy
should learn that even here in this
cotton country, an honest penny
can be turned more than once in a
A casual glance over the South
is sufficient to show that Secretary
Lamar is right when he says that
some sections of this country are
moving forward in tho lino of prog
ress at an astonishing pace, and it
requires no prophet to predict that
thc next ''.condo will bring a revo
lution in nor industrial methods.
The reason why wo make so lit
tle progress, is that wo attempt too
much. One factory or other indus
try started in a modest way and
gradually worked up, it mutters
not how insignificant a beginning
it may have, if it ia finally placed
on a paying basis, is worth more to
the community thnn thc most gi
gantic enterprise which starts out
with a great blowing of horns, but
from want of cxperince or other
causes falls. We need solid paying
enterprises such as will offer safe
Investments to capitalists. It is
not for show that wo want factories,
but to prove that money can be
mode in the South outside of cot
ton fields. We urge tho necessity
ol a cotton factory at this pince, not
only because lt will bring thousands
?it'dollars, hore tg}rfJ?o expended at
homo for snell things as tho farmers
of tho county cnn produce pr oil tn?
bly, but bocauso there is tho strong
est reasons to believe that it would
be profitable to stockholder.?.
But it is a mistake to suppoeo
that only a cotton factory will bring
this result, Humlrcds?of entcrpri*
ses could bo mon Honed which
would go far towards dispelling thc
depression that always exists in
exclusively agricultural districts.
A poor carpenter a tow year? ago
in this state, met with an accident
which disabled him for heavy work.
Ho set to work, and with the limit
ed means he could command, erec
ted a rude shop to manufacture
split-bottom chairs. To-day he is

Ol Georgia. A blind mau in u
neighboring county was taught to
make brooms a short while back,
and now he has a factory that con
sumes more raw material,-broom
corn-than can bc procured in this
?State. ?Mo it is cveryhcrc. Other
places are moving forward, diversi

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
(Hy Our Regular Correspondent.)
Washington, May 2Sth, 1887
?Since I last wrote you the tillich
discussed National Drill has been
formally opened and has passed
t'irough various vicissitudes, al
ready. It has boen visited by ter
rille rain s*orm.s on several succes
sive evenings, accompanied by cy
clones which forobore to perform
any more serious antics than tho
smashing up of thc apparatus con
nected with the Pyorama, thc car
rying away of tents ami their con
tents from tho camp ground, the
unroofiigof tb?? spectator's grand
stand, and many others of a simi
Despite ali these discouragements
tho Drill is still progressing in a
fairly creditable manner. Kvery
morning tho Pyorama and the
soldiers and the spectators come
up smiling for tho programme of
the day, as if there was nothing se
rious about, a cyclone, and tho spec
tacle proceeds. The city is so full
of soldiers and strangers that ono
is forcibly reminded of Inaugura
tion times. Hands play, bugles call,
the shrill lifo is heard, and drums
beat all day long. The lively men
aro doing a rushing business and
making the streets as lively as pos
sible. Carriages, landaus, herdlcs,
cabs, tandem teams, jaggers, bug
gies, in short, every available con
veyance is in demand by the visit
ing sightseers. The bicycle and
tricycle depots too are entirely be
reft of machines, many of the sol
dim-boys taking advantage of this
method of locomotion while sojour
ning in the wheelman's paradise.
They aro perfectly enthused with
its miles and miles of broad asphalt
pavement, where never so muon as
a gravel .comes in contact with
Thc most brilliant day of tho Drill
was Wednesday, when the troops
in fun dress parade were reviewed
by the President. The people turn
ed outen masse and literally over
flowed tho streets along tho line of
march. Business was temporarily
suspended along thc route and bus
iness people jo?ix 1 tim throng of
sight-scers.|Tho Ptcsidont occupied
a flag draped stand erected on Penn
sylvania avenue in front of tho
White House, and he was surroun
ded l.y the Governors of several
?States with their staffs, some of the
Cabinet officers, and a few other
prominent people. General ?Sh?rif
dan was there, also Mrs Cleveland,
who was, ns HSlial, thc cynosure of
of al; eyes.
General Augur, tho Comman
dant of tho camp, rode at the head
of the procession, surrounded by
his staffs, all mounted, and receiv
ed marked recognition from tho
stand. The ?Stuart Horse Guards, !
of Richmond, came next at tho hoad
of tho Virginia brigade. Govcnor
Deo was proud of the showing made
by bis ?State, and from his placo on
tho stand applauded the. soldiers
heartily. Must of tho tinifoilUH
weroresplendent, while tho Com
mandant wore a suit of dark blue
with black cord trimmings and a
plain white helmet. Not a private
soldier In the parado had a uniform
half so plain and simple as his.
While the marching was for the
most part good, there invaribly ap
pearer! a waver in tho linc just when
tho soldiers passed the Presidential
stand and would have, like to show
to the best advantage. This was
attributed to the desire of men to
got a good look at the President
and his pretty wife about whom
they lind heard so much. Many a
side glance was cast up into the
grand stand at the expense of good
form. It became necessary to
change the styl? of march, and sev
eral Jialis were made in conse
quence. Knob, time thc order, pa
rado rest, Was given, the soldiers
in tho vicinity Of the stand turned
about and kept their eyes Axed up
on the Presidential party until they
were ororcd to march again.
Tho gel"vices of the. camp hospi

since the beginning of tho Encamp?

lads-far from hom?--unod treat

somo kind. Tims far most of the
patients who have been brought

most of them.

Tho Haddock trial ended as it
was tim foregone conclusion it
would end-either in acquittal or
disagreement of the jury. It was
a packed jury, any quantity of
money was in Hie hands of tho de
fense, and was used without scruple.
Juror O'Connel says that he was
repeatedly approached and asked
to name Ids price. The rumsellor
has adopted assassination as his
weapon, and is it a wonder that

I>r. Talmage Nails a Ide.
There is now going the rounds of
the. Press a reported interview witli
Dr. Talmage, in which the Doctor
is made to express himself in favor
of High License. We clipped the
interview and sent it to Dr. Tal
mage, and here is Iiis answer:
"Of course that interviewon High
License is a sham. I have had
many letters about it. Whenever
interviewed I have in unmeasured
terms denounced liigh License ns
a compromise with the devil. It is
an armistice that will give the en
emy time to reorganize, ids forces,

Thc Philadelphia Press originat

Tue Iowa ?State Register says,
"Thc warfare Upon the sale of
liquors of all kinds has been so suc
cessful that tho great majority of
the saloons with which the State
was for a long time cursed have
boon entirely abolished, and prohl
I bitiOU is reigning absolute in four?
fifths of the counties in the state."

Ten years ago, whim I entered
(his temperance work, my father
(who changed wo. ids a few years
sinee) used to advise me to keep
my eyes open as I travelled and as
siam as I saw a good chance to get
Into the newspaper business again
to drop lecturing oa temperance
and take up tho pen, "for," said he,
"thistemperance work is merely a
temporary excitement-a sort of
moral itch on tlie body of society
that will soon be allayed." Well, I
kept my eyes open, but the longer
I travelled, the more I found lo do,
and to-day, like every worker in tho
j field, I find it impossible to answer
! all the Macedonian eries for help.
The excitement has blown over
"the other w-ay," and every State,
Territory and civalized country is
on fire with temperance and pro
! bibi tory enthusiasm. For once In
