mills that will each bo capitalized at

50,000 spindles and complement of
; looms for manufacturing a tine grade
of COttOll goods not heretofore pro

Features of the years news have
been the continuation of the move,
ment toward the production of liner
grades of cloth, Cue use of electricity
as motive power, and an Increasing
interest of Northern and New ISng
Innd cotton manufacturers in South
ern cotton milling. For instance, the
two big Greenville mills mentioned
are being made possible largely
through the investment of New Eng
land capital to the extent of $600,000
and $T()(i,0iii) respectively. The lawn
and llnon plant will be known as
the Wcstervelt mills, and Its active
manager is .1. I. Weste'-vctt of Green
ville, tor many years known as a suc
cessful ? otton manufacturer in the
South. The other Greenville mill will
be known as the Dunean cotton mills,
and its principal promoter is Capt.
Ellison A. Smyth, another well-known
Southern cotton manufacturer. An
other instance is a Georgia mill capi
talized at $200,000 almost entirely by
Northern manufacturers, who will
ship the plant's product to their
Northern mills for conversion into oil
cloth. Still another instance Is the
$500,000 mill, with about 2o D00 spin

bins of Charlotte proposes to build in
