It is now said that the road will be completed

THE G., C. & N. ROAD.
The Line to be I.oca led in Allien* this
Week and Contracts Let Out.
A/lens /ianncr.
The Georgia, Carolina and Northern Hailroad
is slowly coming towards Athens, and
by next summer the trains will be running
from Monroe. X. C.t to the Classic City, 'flic
section from Chester to Clinton will be completed
in a lew days?more than a thousand
hands being at work thereon?and so soon as
this is done the entire force will be put to
work grading to the Savannah river, as the
route is located to that point.
This week the chief engineer will be in Athens
for the purpose of locating the line out of
our city, when contracts will be at once let
and dirt broken. Then forces will be set to
work on both ends of the line, and they will
meet at the Savannah river.
This company has the money in hand to
pay for the grading and equipping of the entire
road, and of course it is to their interest
to hasten the work as fast as possible, for the
sooner will then interest on idle capital be
stopped.
In the next thirty days it is expected that
every part of the route from Athens to Clinton,
S. C., will be under contract.
This will be great news for our people. They
have been anxiously waiting to see dirt
broken on the (<., c. A N., for it means the highest
kind of a booin for Athens.
INTERESTING COTTON FIGURES.
<'ompnralive StntcinonlM. ami Speculalioiis
IVrlaiiiing to (li<> Old King
? Prosperity lor llie Soulh ? Tlie
<; row III oT Her .Manufactures.
Tlus annual hook of Latham, Alexander A*
Co., "Cotton Movements mid Fluctuations,"
contain*, as usual, some very valuable facts
anil figures. The circular from the firm,
printed in stereotype from an autograph let
ter, is very interesting.
"Although in the main," says the circular:
"drops have been favorable, there have been
exceptions enough in certain sections to make
opinions vary greatly as to tlieout-turn of the
growing crop. The uncertainty on ibis point
has been heightened by the September report
of the agricultural bureau, which was not so
favorable as expected. It made the general
average condition of the crop Sii.U, against S'J.S
in September, isss. The October report makes
it si.I, against 7S.9 in ?ictobcr, 1SSS. There is
therefore a falling olF of overlive percent, in
tiie condition since last'inonth.
Taking the foregoing fuels into consideration
and remembering how late much cotton was
planted, it seems improbable that the yield
will much exceed that of last year or the year
before.
This becomes matter for serious thought
when taken in connection with the statement
put lorth by the foremost of European authorities
tli.it a crop of T.luu.ouo bales will be
needed to supply the wants of the world.
The crop is late, and however large it ultimately
may be, receipts have so far not been
what could be call oil very heavy.
Besides being retarded by the lateness of the
season they have lurther been aH'ccteU by a
disposition on the part of producers to hold
shipments back until the question of cottonin
place of Jute?bagging had been settled.
Hence stocks of cotton are still light.
The comparative position of cotton as to
price and supply is as follows:

The stock in I'liiled Slates p-.rts is 12,O.SO

Tliedeuiaial fi.r cotton is good, and will be
largerwhen all imills dial have been forced
into short time by tin- action of the Liverpool
cornertrs begin to run full time again. This
they undoubtedly will do very soon, for trade
is good. In fuel, many close observers assert
that demand lor cotton has outstripped production.
It is certain that at. the close of the
year just past the interior had been swept
clean of cotton, stocks at the United states
ports were very light,and spinners were holding
very little cotton at their mills.
The exceptionally high price for spot cotton
that ruled during the September corner has.
/?f nut m:i i n miti<*rl in
but prices arc .' till high enough to give the
planter a substantial return for liis labor.
Planters in many sections are sending their
cotton to market in a deliberate manner.
A systematic and abrupt holding back of
!lie crop is not commendable, and sucli a
course of'action has not been adopted in the
Soutii. Planters have, however, resolved not
to rush their cotton to market, and it is gratifying
to know that they are in a position to
adopt their present policy without being dilatory
In meeting their financial obligations.
The laet is they have made their crops with
much lighter advances from factors and merchants
than in any previousyear. They have
al.su, throughout a large extent of territory,
pursued a system of diversified farming; besides
cotton they have raised an abundance of
corn and many other articles. They have
used less of commercial fertilizers than formerly.
The majority of them are, therefore,
in a position to sell their cotton when and
where they please.
other changes have contributed to bring
about the present prosperous condition of the
South.
Manufacturing has progressed lliere rapidly
in the last lew years, more rapidly than In
any other country, not only in cotior.. but also
mother trading lines. The development of
the mineral riches of the South has been phenomenal.
Transportation facilities have
steadily increased.
Crops in other countries are reit: tried fair,
but not h'\vond the a venue. India will certainly
not, inercsise ler shipments:;:'.0,0ik> bales
this year, as she did last year. Kitt lor that
great increase in shipments front India,
which served to partially II11 lite void causcil
by the scarcity of American cotton, prices of
spot col ion would inevitably have gone even
higher than lltey went during (lie latter part
of I he year jusl psiM.
The dry K?toils trade is reported unusually
good for the advanced stage ?>f the season. In
some lines of cotton goods large orders for future
delivery have been placed with agents of
American mills anil importers, and the market
for Maple goods is Mca<ly.
