manding a reform and re-adjustment of
the present system! Among other
things ihe country, specially the farmers
need is more; currency, and an unlim
ited fcoinags of silver was strongly urged!.
There is now, he said, onlv about ..$12.00

THE NEW MILLS.!
Demens & Taylor's Enterprise Al,
ready for Business, Etc.
The largest' and most completely
equipped planing mill and woodwork
ing establishment ever located west of
the Blue Ridge, has -just' begun active
operation on the west side of the West
ern North Carolina railway tracks1, near
the . ne passenger depot, in this city.
The plant is owned'by Demens & Taylor,
who,' a few months . since, came from
Florida to Asheville upon a prospecting
tour. ' They investigated The resources
;of the country round about, and so thor
oughly satisfied were they with what
they saw, and the treatment they received
-at the hands' of our people, that their
confidence was fixed concerning future
success and prosperity in Ihis section of
the land of the sky. They determined
to locate their mills-here, and within
sixty days' time mill buildings, dry kilns,. .
railway tracks, office buildimr. etc have
been completed, and twenty thousand
dollars worth of the latest imnrnvpd
best wood-working: machinery' ,
purchased,: set up in ner-
fect running order, and the entire plant
gotten ready for business. Large piles
of rough lumber, walnut, oak, poplar,
pine, etc.; have been received by the'
company during the past two weeks all
of .which wHL be worked up in filling;
orders already on ' hand. Mr. H. W.
Fitch, late qfj Atlanta" is the Superin-
te?ndentf and rinder his supervision and :
direction twenty or thirty men will be
employed. Mr. F. has had large expert-" v
ence in the milling business, and it has
been chiefly through his -activity, supe
riqr knowledge and push that the new
mill here lias been so rapidly completed.
The machines, and there are many of
them, all ."work,, perfectly, the mot:ve
power being furnished by a Tajdor en-
gine of the latest pattern. Only one l.'nfe
of shafting is used, and only two of the

to the readers jof The Democrat that
West Asheville has located in its center
and educational institution conducted
upon the . same principles and rules as
those governing the city's graded schools
Such is a fact, however, 'and notwith
standing the Kindergarten school has
only been 'established two weeks over
one hundred pupils are in daily attend
ance. The school is under the manage- '
ment of Miss, S. Garrison, and is sup
ported by the contribution of several
enterprising and philanthropic- citizens
pf West Asheville, among whom are
Mr. H. T. Collins who donated $100;
C. E. Graham $100; TV. B. Marx $25, and
others. The Sunday school of' the First
Baptist Church also contributes $50 to
the school fund, and "the Church streejt
Methodist church will make a similar
r m 1
donation. The Woman's Christian
temperance Lnion and Asheville Di
vision Sons of Temperance will each
raise a liberal fund for the support,
and maintenance of the school. Several
small contributions in cash have been
made, and the rent of the building in
which the school is carried on is donated '
by Mr. Richmond Pearson. The -public
school, sixty students, under the direc

of these institutions, due alone to the
big-heartedness and genuine philanthro

Everything points to the immediate
prosecution of this very important
work, and we are snre that the people
along the proposed route will render
every assistance that may be required of
them. It is certainly the most important
work that Western North Carolina
could enter upon, and we hope it will be
pushed to a speedy completion.
