THURSDAY, BEIT. 15.1808. THE OPPORTUNITY OF THE SOUTH. Wm. E. Gladstone in writing of the resources of this country has paid: 'The time may come when your wealth will overllow into other land, but for the present your vast powers of production, which the Mouth seems likely ho much to en large, will not disdain extraneous uid." John Skelton Williams, a lead ing mining expert, developer and contractor of Richmond, Va in commenting on the above in a re cent interview has said: f"That the time will come when our wealth as Mr. Gladstone sayp, 'will overflow into other lands' one cannot doubt. Already several of tho New York banks are doing a large business in lending money all over Europer Withcit the aid of European capital in the past, our county would not go booh have reached its present state of ad vancement, but having utilized l'j . ropean capital as tar as was needed, we have now become prac' tically independent of it. The South must go through the same course that the North and West have pursued. It must utilize, for pome time yet, outside capital for its own upbuilding and enrich ineut, or it must lag behind and 'ake a longer time to accomplish what can be done in ten years by the aid of outside men and money Our Southern people generally re' nlize this, and they appreciate the advantages that will come to every liody the day laborer, the skilled mechanic, tho firmer, the mer chant and the manufacturer from a great Southward How of capital." And we believe it is true. But a southward trend of capital does not mean mere money lending. It means investment, the upbuilding of our villages into thriving com munities and plenty of business. It means the removal of manufact uring plants to the South in close juxtaposition to the raw material It means the movement of north ern citizens and skilled mechanics to the South in short, a marvel ous growth Mere money lending nor money borrowing would never Hccomplish this. It would only be a mortice on the wonderful re sources that are ours bv location Phe South has an opportunity for unprecedented growth, and the era of the boom has vanished in the mist of the past. This year has demonstrated more than ever that there is money in the grape raising business in the Sequachee Valley. The people of th grape belt in New York State have been forced to abandon their vineyards on aocount of the com petition ol the southern g ape, and are now taking to the bee. suar indus'ry. The South is the place to raise the grape and the moun tains of Tennessee produce a better jruit than do the sandy fields of Tallapoosa. The southern vino is a money makr. May girls pass a forty dollar boy with a fifteen cent suit without notice and smile bewitchingly to a liiuen cent boy clad in a forty dol lar suit.

It is their intention to go to peach mis ing but the experiences of others down there this summer should deter them from it. Let them come here instead and go to grape raising. There is abundant mon ey in it. and it is a pleasant busi ness. The southern grape is the world beater, and it is raised in its greatest perfection on the slopes of the mountains of East Tennessee.

When we pick up a paper we always look to see what is the news first and after that we read the editorials, uuless we have a special desire to rad the editorials first. It is the same way with al most everybody. People want the nnYa and could get along without the editorials at all.

Wednosday of last week tho back water was stand ng over the public road near Uattle Creek bridge and no travel en tered South Pittsburg from tho north. The pea crop in tho low lands is ruined but in tho majority of places tho water was not h igh enough to reach tho ear of corn on the stall:, or if it did roach it did not submerge it long enough to ruin it. Our old residents prophesied that wo would hav o high water if it took to September to got it, and their prophesy has come true. It is to bo hoped that tho dura ago will not turn out to bo more serious than it is estimated now, as our farmers work too hard for what they get now for their labor, and tbo loss of their crop would ensure great hardships to them the coming winter.

So all decided this would bo tho best way to settle their election and trusted to the honor of Messrs. llright and Tato to sco they were all duly appointed at onco. But, ula.! no appointments wero made until last Saturday, when only two of tho men .Jacoway and MoCampbell wero appointed. A. J. Willis was ap pointed to serve in WoodiTn's place. Tato's failure toappoint all throe of the men, as was tho understanding, hss caused much unfavorable comment and dissatisfaction and tho appointment of Willis, who bas no more right to servo than home man iu Santiago, is regarded as a very unjiist act upon tho part of Mr. Tate. Woodlin was elected by tho pooplo and was entitled to serve, wbilo Willis was not wanted for school com missioner at all. Ilia bittor republican politics and his appointment of negro jurors rendered him obj"ctionablo to many, who mako no bones in expr ssing themselves, and for Dan Tate to Bet at naught tho will of tho people as ex pressed by popular, ballot and foist such a man upon them bas simply aroused public indignation and the fact that Tate has done this without the slight est authority has intensified the lidig nation So far as we are individually concern ed wo do not care for Dan Tale's refus ing to appoint us, but where is the fair m l mi d, right-thinking man, who can say he has done right done h s duly; and where is tho man who loves justice and fair play that can say Willis has acted right? We wero duly elocted by the sovereign voters of tho lower 14th district and why Willis didn't want us to serve is a matter wo want him to ex plain to his congregation tho next timo ho enters the pulpit to preach. As to Tate's action, wo do not believe tho county will endorse it but upon the other hand we believe he is serving his last term as county superintendent. Ilo no doubt disregarded us and appointed Willis In cam tho latter bas a voice in the body that elects him, but that body will not be apt to elect him again. And we would suggest to him, if he has au thority to appoint Willis, that bo ap point him for lifo, as it may bo his last opportunity to give him an office.
