(From the Southern and Western
During the sessions of the late
hankers' convention at Warm Springs,
On., an address was delivered by
Vice Prosident B. S. Walker, of the
3-nk of Monroo.
The addross, which follows, will be
found to he replete with suggestions
well worthy of attention. Coming
from a man who is himself engaged
inl the various lines of business of
which be writes, it, has the benefit of
"There are inl almost every town
in Georgia merchants who famo and
fret. every time a new merchant Jo.
e it es in their town; doctors who er ti
o'sO and slander the new pill roller
fr.shli from the 1medical college with
his no-w crisp dipmlonla, prepared, as
he thinks, to heiar all the diseases to
which humanity is subject; lawyers
who gonnc upon the now limb of the
law, andil in a snivring mann r advr
tiso his imistakes in his first cases and
predict his future in placos likely to
do him harm; bankers who groan in
disgust every timo they see a Mr.
Withlam has opened a new bank.
Throre are cotton mill men in this
St ite Vow rollinlg in anguish, fretting
their lives away because they see
nowf and then at cotton mill projected
in somo Georgia town, and if by
chimce they are appealed to for ad
vicit by thoge intending to build a
mill they tell tle parties to keep
their money out of cotton mills, that
thero 11re already too many in the
country; thatt hoso now running do
not pmy and oftentimes they defeat
the building of the mill.
"I am thankful that I do not bo
long to this class of croakers. I am
one of those who believe every bale
of cotton produced in Georgia should
be spui in Georgia. There is no
such thing as too many mills in Geor
gia, or in the South, so long as a
a balo of cotton is shipped to New,%
England or across the water. 1 am
tired seeing our farmera selling their
cotton for $25 per balo to foreign
manufacturers and buy it back in its
mianufact.ured stato at from $60 to
$75, the difference between the prico
received and the price paid having
gone to pay freight, to enrich for
eign manufacturers and to feed and
clothle thle pioor- of ot her countries,
while our wvorthy poor people are
left. to spend their lives in misery
and want. A noble old Georgian
who hats made a large fortune by
manuitifactuirinig cotton saidl a few
(lit ago its several hundred of his
opmerativos were passing out of his
mtill: 'I enjoy feeding and clothing
these poor people more than I enjoy
ald Ithe money I have madle.

cauise they own a few shares in some10

t heir bar.best opit.hets.
"I ama almost prepared to say
whlerover there is a bank in a Geor
gtn town and nio cot ton mi. Ii banik
hats inot done its duty. I w .1 say
most emiphatical ly thle hank has noeg
lected a miost important opportunity
of inicroa-uig its own 'usinless anrd
tlhe busuiness of every ..dividual in
lhe comnmuinity from the largest mnor
chant to the most tmiignificant wash
erwomani or woodchiolpr.
"For the truth of this assertion, I
have but to refer you to my own
towvn Monroe, to IIar mony Grovo. te
Jackson, to Toccoa and to Elberton,
in each of which places prosperous,
dividend-paying cotton mills h-ve
boon under the supervision of the
olicers of the local bank nud aro now
being operated most successfully to
the great good of the bauiks and for
the good of every man, woman and
child in those towns. Do not under
stand me to s,.y that the banks are
in partnerthip with the mill. This is
not true and would iot be advisable.
But the mills aro undor the fo.,tering
caro of the banks, an oflicor of the
bank being an officor of the mi.
"The mills neod money to buy
their supply of cotton in the fidl and
winter, just when the anks are full
of money. They use the bank's mno
noy from say November till May,
and pay it back in tiru for the farm
ers to use it iml making their crops.
The .-otton is fully insured Muid is
held and owned by tho bank, amnd is
paid for beforo it i- spuin by the mill.
It is stored right at hurti, not all in
one large warehouse, subject to one
firo, !)ut in several warelousi s hold

lent waterworl,s. There is no botter
paper or better colhteral. Ther is'
not a banker within my horit g who
Is in his vault ia better ptiaper than
tho note of vither of tho cot ton mills
I have mentioned wit i a warehouse
rceipt aM.t hed to it. A country
bank with a Colton mill inder its
car 1100d n0eVr have an idle (ollar.
Not so withi a bank without, a mill
ii its vicinity; it se(ds its nioney in
October and November to its city de
positury, where it romains without
intorest till the spring of the year.
"Another groat advantage to a
country bank inl having a Cotton HIll
in its caro is the fact that the stock
owied by the citiz-ns of the town or
by farmors near by affords such ex
collent collatoral upon which to lvnd
money. Cottor mill stock wort h1 par
onl the market is as good collateral
as a government bond. If there is
it Goorgia a village cotton mill
which is tiunder proper nanagement
ad which has been kept up-to date
int all modern improvements, whose
stock is not worth par, I do not know
it. Not so, however, with some of
the mills in cities, whero high sa1la
rios, high taxes, labor unions and
tramp labor have mrined their profits.
When these advantages which the
villages have over the cities in the
mantifacture of cotton become fally
noticed aid appreciatod, the new
mills will all be located in the vil
lagos and the (coiuntry banks will
prosper as never before.
