View of Friendly Xowspnper of tbe
Proposed Electric Line Extension
from Greenville to Clluton.
A recent issue of the Columbia State |
contained the following edttoral con- ,
corning the scheme of extending a ,
trolley branch line from Greenville to!,
Clinton via Laurens:
The city of Laurens is especially In- i
terested In the proposed trolley line j
evtension in the up-county. The capi- ;
tal of one of the largest and richest |
counties in the Piedmont, Laurens is |
not on a trunk line of railway and in
terurban electric transportation would \
be of a valuo far greater in its dovel- i
ment than it would be to most of the
neighboring cities. i
Laurens business men point oui that |
a "line from Greenville to Laurens and
thence to Clinton ought to attract the i
attention of capitalists as a peculiarly (
inviting proposition. The distance Is ]
about 50 miles. The route would bo ?
over a ridge all tho way with only |
two water courses of consequence to |
croas, Laurel creek, near Greenville, i
and Little River (a stream which lu
spite of Its name is only a small creek)
within the limits of the city of Lau
This .r>0-mlle ridge of an average j
width of eight or ten miles supports In
prosperity one of the largest white ? '
populations to be found in any section ,
In the South. Outside of Greenville,
along the proposed route, are cotton j
mills with about a quarter of a million
spindles. Resides, there are in opera- '
Hoe in the villages and cities on the j
line at least six cottonseed oil mills,
two Ice factories, a granite quarry,
an orphanage with more than :',00 in
mates, foundries, wood-working shops,
steam laundries, a college, and eleven
If one would see a convincing pic
ture of Southern farm prosperity, he
should visit the stock show at Fair
view, in Greenville county, where at a
point on the high ridge that we have
described four or five miles from a
railroad, 7,000 people gather eacu year,
and where the display of agricultural
products, and live stock is scarcely
excelled at any of the fairs held in
the South. We suppose that tho ad- j

The people of this strip of country
have themselves invested at least a
million of dollar:; In manufactures. It
seems that they would have confidence
enough in themselves to build an elec

obtain it by subscribing only one
