000, the third mill of the 20,000 spindle th
class announced for immediate con- te
struction within the week, the -other W
two to be at Laurens and at Chesnee a,
in Spartanburg county. Leading men O(
of Newberry are subscribing to the 01
stock of the company and so are show
ing their faith in theAr city as well as c
in the Southern textile industry. The tl
depression in cloth manufacturing is
of course temporary; cloth must be W
made and the time is long past when c
the ability to spin and weave in the W
South in competition with the North E
or with Europe is open to question.
The investment of capital and espe- c
cially of home capital in manufactures o1
continues now as before a hopeful
sign and the people of Newberry are ol
to be congratulated. M
Meanwhile a little manufacturing b
enterprise has been started in Green- li
ville, involving relatively small outlay, w
that may have a larger significance m
and promise better things than a cot- PT
ton mill, though the latter cost a la
round million. The Greenville con- pj
cern will manufacture underwear. The '
South is making immense quantities g
of cotton cloth of every description, T
far greater quantities than the South N
can consume, but the South is buying B
and wearing incomparably greater
quantities of cotton garments than it T
makes-indeed, the output of cotton
garments, barring those that the tc
housewife sews with her needle, as s
yet is negligible.
The manufacture of underwear,
shirt-waists, handkerchiefs and simi- P'
lar articles of apparel would require
lighter and less irksome if more
skilled labor than the labor of the g
mill that converts the raw cotton into E
cloth. It would offer to women espe
cially employment more congenial s
than that in the mill. W
Plume ourselves as we may upon
the development of cloth making in
the South during the last 30 years,
and we have much to boast of, it is
scarcely creditable to the South thatd
the industry has remained and still.

as the spinning industry was firmly b<
on its feet, but progress in the formeru
has been slow and painful. For the
sake of its influence throughout thew
Southern cotton mill district as well,
as for its own, the Greenville under- n
