The Big Brogon. Cotton Mills
Tho erection ot* the hip Brogon Cot

rapidly than would be supposed when
the continued bad weather ?H taken
into consideration. Labor-500 brick
masons, carpenters and common labor
ers-has boin plentiful, an abundance
ot material has heen kept on hand and
every ?lay on which work could bo
do.JO has been made to count.
Themain mill building is l.nj:; feel
long, nverngiug Ki'! feet wide, divided
up as follows: Spinning room, t<> con

feet long by 205 feet wide, to contain

A Word to Ginncrs.
Tht! third und final report lo the cen
sus ellice of thu nmnherof bales of cot -
ton pinned from the crop grown in 1003
is now being matin np. Thanking the
Sinners for their co-operation in milk
ing the two former reports, I want to
ask their especial help in making this
one as it will show w hat the crop really
is and have greater influence on tho
market than the January report. There
is certain to bo less than 10,000,000 bales
made in LOOS, anti if we can pet every
bnlo ginned reported by tho pinners so
that it cnn be officially published by
the census ollice, it will bo of prent
benefit to tho fow funnels who have
held their cotton this year ami to all
farmers in market inp next year'c crop.
For this report I want to pet the
whole number of bnlc.t ginned for the
season of 1?03 and their average weight.
1 will seo every ?inner in tho coun
try, either in person or L>_\ deputy, tim -
ing tho next two weeks a.nd it would
bo very much appreciated if each pin
ner would have the figures ready. If
he will be away from home have "them
at his house so that a correct report can
bo readily made.
The condition of the roads makes tln>
canvass difficult and if pinners would
semi mu ut ouce the total number of
bales pinned by them this season anti
their average weight I would appre
ciate it very much.
There are several private or planta
tions pins that have not been listed.
The owners of Buch should volunteer
and let mu know ns wo want every bale
of colton pinned.

Editor Intelligencer: The article,
"Some of ibo Ci ty'a Finances," which
appeared in your issue ot' thc 1Mb inst.,
causes me to direct this communication,
trusting tlint no part ol it will convey
the slightest intimation ur suspicion of
any other but purr motives.
As a citizen it is a duty ono owes to
himself and tho community in which
hois living to stand UH a sentinel on
the tower watching thc approach of
danger in order to Round tho alarm
win n proper to do so, and utter tho
warning hun been given, other forces
must ho brought into play and do their
part. This 1 propo.se to do in the spirit
ol loyalty to my town, in the feeling of
brotherly love for my fellow man, anti
with thc best ot i n ten tiona for tho fu
ture welfare of tJit* community in
whirli I am living. If my criticisms on
the former methods ot our street de
partment appear somew hat harsh, it is
not tor th?'sake nf criticising so much
as it is to present my views from thu
economic standpoint, for what has
taken place under loose habits must be
remedied, or we shall remain laggards
To have spent .f'IU.TSS.?J? for I he year
ending last August on streets alone,
and have no streets aller all, is simply
a farce and a crime against all princi
ples in modi in civic science. I f such
an amount should Ix- applied to inter
?s! and a sm kim; lund on an amount
to permanently build our streets, we
will at lea-l have streets that \\ill in
crease and not decrease trallie. As it
now stands, we have expended about
loriy thousand dollars (on so called
stree! improvements,) liming the last
live or six years, and not a dollar of re
turn to the town outside of some of the
permanent Belgian block crossings and
curbings provided by the last Council.
This in reality is the only permanent
improvement to he seen and for which
tho city's money has been judiciously
applied, but. for the other thousands
that have been paid out by our city
treasury, we may as well look for them
ut. the bottom of the sen for real belle
ll t. This being true, why shall' u citi
zen be admonished to refrain from
furl lier discussion on the muddy streets
and the bond issue?
Publicity on ali mattera pertaining
10 the welfare and expansion of a com
munity is tile only means by which
great undertakings can he carried out.
J'o remain silent for fear that some
one's feelings will be wounded is anti
quated and harmful to a community
that is aiming to develop its possibili
ties. We are living in an ago when)
rapid stride must bu maduor retrogres
sion will b(i the result. .Shall we,
therefore, protect the individual to tho
detriment ol' the whole community?
Dr shall we remain secretive about a
matter that every citizen has a i itfht to
know, or fearing because a few narrow
minded individuals may ventilate their
opposition? No, Mr. Editor, never will
we accomplish anyt hing through secre
tive methods, or what t.ie politician
secs Ut to call political tactics. There
is simply mulling political in this
movement for street improvement but
11 plain, open proposition as to whether
it. will bo cheaper for the town to con
tinue to spend $10,000 or $11,000 per
rm ii um, and at i .e end of twenty years
rc m ni ii where we are at. present, or
upend a stiHicient sum now for perma
nent improvements anti in a few years
Nave streets that will be a delight and
* pleasure to travel over. This sectus
very plain to any unprejudiced mind
ind not quite as "muddy" a problem us
wino might suppose.
Let our City Council or street depart
ment make public their plans without
?ear of meeting with opposition, and 1
nu sure that no rational thinking citi
zen will oppose them if in keeping with
ho city's financial ability to ineet it.
Martin Luther, to whom tho world is
ndebtcd to-day for the stride Cluis
ianity has made, said: * * " "Do
what is right and fear no man."
Therefore, it would, in my humble
ipinion, be wisdom to discuss this mat
er thoroughly and light tho battle on
?pen lines. There should be nothing
o hide; tho people havo a right to
enow how their money shall be used.
