Baltimore, Md, Feb. 28.-Recent
travelers in the South, men who oc.
etcupied prominent positions in mann
actures or finance are in a position
to formulate the results of their ob
servations in practwal judgment, are
enthusiast ic over the Sout h's indust
rial and commercial prospects. The
Manufacturers' Record publishps thia

Condition of the farmors is a pret
ty good index to the situation in
other hnman activities. Generally,
the farmert are eu.joying a degree of
prosperity seldom equalled in past
years. They have money in bank,
~fnd the effect of this, as seen by
close observers, is a tendeuc-y on the
part of local banks to reduce con
siderably their rate of interest to bor
rowers. This manifestation is quite
marked in Texas, where in the won
derful and rapid dovelopm%ut of the
resources of ihe State the people tr
accumulating wealth. Money re
ceived from the cotton crop during
the past year or eighteen months
has made many man itid,pendent for
the first time in his life. His bank
account is in his fav,1r. an-d banks ii

there is enough now iale, it is esti.

Texas without looking to New York
or other financial centres. Local
capital, too, is absorbing ecurities

From Texas to the Carolinas, how
ever, it is found that prevailing high
prikee for cotton are tempting to m.
increase of acreage, th-mgh againsi
this is the strengetbensd habit, ac
quired in adversity, of raising hom,
supplies and devoting more attention,
to a diversity of crops.
Phases of cotton milling in ti e
Piedmont region have been a revels.
tion to persons who have for the
first time been brought into clos.
touch with them. The character ands
the volume of mill products have
been, of course, well known, but the
visitor passing from one centre of
industry to another, with visions of
almost continual banners of sin ke
along the route, is astonished at the
size, the number and the capacity of
the mills, their great advantageti in
location, command of material labor,
and ability to meet rapidh increasing
necessities in the power line. At
Columbus and Augusta, Ga.,at Char
leston, 8. C., at Charlo,tte, and( at
many other points, he is impressed
with the cotton oil mills, where cake
and meal are made for eattle and
where even the last refuse of what
was once practically all waste be
coupes tbe basis for soap, while in
lumber centres the beginninogs o*
plans to utilize other WRstes are noted.

effects of adherence to a conserva

promise contained in contiguity of
coal, ore and limestone.
The returning business tourist
brings with him the convictinn that
in he South the o;p rt i-tes o
safe and profitable investment ii
capital are almost unlimited. These
are to be had not only in commercial
communities k,-eping pace in growth
with the improvement of the physical
and financial conditions of railroade
centering in them, but largely in the
development of water powers, elec
trical transmissi->n, lighting and
transportation, mills and factories of
many kinds, particularly those whieb
will give the second or third handl
ing of material like the furniture
factories of Nrth Carolina and the
oil mills in all the cotton States, or
which will rise with the perfection of
machinery for the utilization of the
by-produ.ts of the iron, cotton, oil
and lumber industries.
