been added to the surplus account $9,

factory, six miles east of Spartanburg,
8. C, and possessing the peculiar fea
ture of not being run by an incorporated
comoanv. but is owned oy uireeparc
ners. two of whom conduct the entire
business. This handsome brick factory
is filled with new machinery of the lat
est improvements. It is run by two
turbine water wheels of the combined
capacity of 100 horse power. They have
5,000 spindles and 120 looms in opera
tion, consuming six bales of cotton and
oroducintr about 7.000 yards of cloth
daily in 1876 1,511 bales, costing $75,00?
at an average cost of 10 per ft. The
. productions of the factory were 1,8:32,-
137 yards of cloth, weighing 578,020 ftsr
ana yuo ouncues oi yarn weigiimg
46,025 fts. The pay roll amounted to
,$27,012.90. .They consumed in fuel, oil,
starch, and other necessary findings re
quired awutiraii They have
also connected with their business a
large tract of land under cultivation, a
store house with well selected goods, a
fine " flouring milL t cotton gins and
presses,'circnlar saw' mill, blacksmith
and machine shops, shingle and planing
ifcachines.1 The slieetings, shirtings,
drills and cotton yarns made in the full,
winter and spring months, and sold
entirely at home ; but dining the sum
mer, some portion of their fabrics, are
shipped North, South and West. Much
that is shipped to New York and Balti
more is exported to' foreign countries "
All of the above is the result of an in
vestment of $19,800, twenty-one years
ago, when the old Bivingsville factory,
with dilapidated wooden buildings and
worn out machinery, were purchased
for the above sum on credit Not a
dollar of outside capital has been paid
in. The entire property as it now stands
of land, buildings, machinery, tenement
houses; Ae Ac, have been- built and
paid f or out of its own earnings , I n
addition to all Of these' improvements
since 1865, the partners have divided
handsome dividends annually The
one hundred and fifty employes are con
tented and happy, out of debt, and have
in aggregate about $3,000, on deposit!
They have two churches and a Sunday
school of ninety scholars.
With such a showing, who can say
that cotton manufacturing does not pay
at the South ? Synopsis of operations

1878: Cotton consumed, 842 bales, aver

From the report of W. C. Sibley, lsq.,
president of the Langley cotton mill,
located at Langley, S. C., we learn what
the profits have bee f r the past 6 years
after paying taxes, insurance, as
In 1871V 62,340.70.
An average of $59,254 per year or $5.92
per spindle. The profits of 1876, were
nearly all made during the last half of
In 1878 the mill has been running
extra hours, and isthree months behind
its orders! The stockholders yoted to
double the capacity of the mill.
And so I might proceed multiplying
the list of successful cotton mills near
the cotton fields, but those already re
ferred to are sufficient to establish the
fact that when well controlled, they
richly compensate the men who erect
and run them. -It is true that some of
the Southern mills have been failures ;
but may they not be traced to having
been started upon borrowed money, in
adequate capital, planned upon too ex
Glendale factory (just quoted) by own
ers competentto direct its operations,
and at the sama time, know what
amount -of labor they had a right to ex

But the Southern people are not the
only ones among the cotton growers
who are beginning to appreciate the
benefits to be derived from the devel
opment of their peculiar agricultural

market for 850)0000 annuaUy
ufactured goods; and that market irnot
likfly to decrease, unless the prMuctfrfr?
of cotton is increased and - the intro
duction of mills can have no effect in
that direction. It isirue that China, in
stead Of importing manufactured goods,
might with additional mills, import
raw cotton if she could get it; but the
freight from this country would be
prohibitive ; Indian and Egyptian cot
ton are under the control of European
capital, and the other sources. of supply
are insignificant, so even that remote
probability of disturbing the course of
traoe aoes not exist ?
"The difference between the cases of
China and the Southern States briefly
expressed, is this: Our cotton now
goes to the mills and comes back again,
and by bringing the mills to the cotton,
we stop this double transportation ; but
establishing manufactories in China, is
only carrying the mills to cotton, that
never came to the mills."
And now, however humiliating it
may be, after all that has been charged
in Congress, and California, against the
1 lolatrous Chinaman, whv cannot these
Southern States condescend to follow
their example,however inferior we may
regard them! For it will be along
time before we shall attract the New
England and Northern mill men, to
invest among us, notwithstanding our
superior natural advantages, which
every visitor at the South acknowledges,
unless we first begin by helping our
selves, settle justly our State debts
make our country more inviting by im
proving our common roads and midges,
educate our young men of mechanical
and mathematical ability, to an equali
ty of skill, quickness and exactness of
handling machines, so that tney may be
improving every day those in use
among us.and we will not only draw to
the South men of enterprise and capital,
but likewise surpass all competitors in
the quality and quantity of the fabrics
we make. For do we Hot work more
hours in the day than the New Emrland
cotton hands VV Are we not exempt in
our temperate latitude, from the de
lays and heavy outlay on expensive con
trivances for protecting mills wheels
from the obstructions of ice ? Can we
not, on account of the mildness and
humidity of our climate, make a better
and stronger fabric? And then as
"manufacturing at the South increases,
so will Southern advantages, in near
ness to the staple, cheapness of labor
and economy of working, be made man
ifest." To all of which may be added,
freedom from the disturbances of
strikes. And another imoortant factor
which may be adduced in our favor, is
that "cotton which is brousrht onlv a
few miles, does not have to be m essed
so that the fibre in the bales are al
most as hard as iron, and fearfully
massacred when broinrht to the
But with all of our natural advan
tages, we shall continue to be the over
seers and agents of others, as long as
we permit manufacturing enterpries of
real merit to languish for the want of
seasonable pecuniary aid and patron
age, and likewise annually exhaust our
selves, by shipping our cotton abroad to
pay for those commodities that ought
to be made at the South. Somehow or
other we are too much inclined to un
derrate our own gifts and manufac
tures, as I will now illustrate bv refer
ence to a paper mill in an adjoining
county, wliieh is now in successful
operation, and shins- it j-eotM to Soiuh

paper manufacturing interests of the
I nited States, and to all the principal
cities of the country. The varieties are
writing paper, bristol boards, glazed
and colored paper, book and newspaper,
French folio, tissue and blotting paper,
every kind of wrapping paper, and last
ly postal card paper. Concerning this
last mentioned article, a contract was
ottered this mill not many months ago
to furnish 900 tons of postal cards per
annum,with a good prospect of the gov
ernment establishing works here for
cutting, printing and preparing the
cards for use. This might have been
consummated, could a few thousand of
the capital lying idle in Charlotte have
been made available.
The disposition exists to go to a dis
tance to ouy goods that can be as well
made at home ; for instance a traveller
for an Atlanta house was arrested here
the other day for selling without a li
cense. The fact was admitted by him,
and as part of the penalty he was to
turn his order over to a h Dime in PIiqv-
lotte manufacturing the kind of paper
he sold. He preferred to turn his or
ders over; whereupon the Charlotte
manufacturer called upon the parties
whc,,ha? given the orders, and offered
to rill them at the same prices and
terms! But they would not consent.
-Miese are hard conditions for a home
enterprise to encounter. Further, there
are merchants in Charlotte who buy
elsewhere paper bags and wrapping pa
per that originally came from Charlotte.
Moreover, paper from this mill is shii-

have to be initiated by the intelligent.
