DEVELOPMENT ON CATAWBA
The President of the Company Say
that Me Can Furnish Electrical
Power for the Same Price the
Manufacturers Pay for Coal.
Charlotte New-. iMh

t lie Southern 1'ower Company, re
ceiilly chartered ui.der the laws of
the tStalo of Jtew Jersey, w ith
WK,(HMI capital, arrived ia Char
lotte tli ih morning.
Dr. Wylie was seen in bis oftce
in the Trust building aud anketl to
give the News au interview eon
ccruing the great jwwer develop
meiitH that are uow and will soon
lie uuder construction. Wheu elec
trical power is under discussion,
Dr. Wylie may be counted on to
lie the most interesting talker that
cau be found either North or 8011th.
As soon as the News man enter
ed the handsome offices, Dr. Wylie
seemed ready for the fray. Klec
trieal power is his hobby and the
harnessing of the Catawba in or
der to develop this Kiwer, is bis
jtmbitiou the goal of his life.
"Yon may suy in the News that
the Southern 1'ower Company is
now iu a position to guarantee the
delivery of electrical imwer at a
.cost not to exceed the price of the
icoal used -by the steam plants."
Thus -spoke Dr. Wylie, aud bis
spyea fairly sparkled when he tin
Mied the sentence.
"You kuow, three yearn ago
I came to Charlotte aud told these
cotton mill owners what I proposed
to do, they looked at me us if I was

"If all the power needed by this
immediate section is not available
just now, I promise that it will be
iu the shortest possible time.
"Today I am prepared to sign
contracts to furnish any amount of
power to new enterprises, erect
their buildings and am ready to
turn their wheels.
"The Houthern Power Company
is uow engaged iu a tremendous
undertaking at Great Falls, ('lies

three falls of 70, 50 aud 45 feet
We are now at work developing

"This work is now being carried
on by practically the same force
that built and put iu service the
power plant formerly kuown as the
Catawba Power Company. With
the developing of the three falls at
Great Falls our capacity will be
augmented by liO.OOO horse power
this, too, at low water.
"When the work at Great Falls
is completed we will move on up

' and there begiu the development
of that proierty, which will add
about 20,000 horse power to our

many, but the probability is that
my company will not even stop at

much as may tie taken. Camden

10,000 horse poaer. Then, Itl.two
horse power will lie brought to
Charlotte, thereby increasing the
actual amount of horse (siwer to
."-',000 for Charlotte.
It is also the intention of the
company to distribute 10,000 horse
power in Gastouia aud that imme
In this connection Dr. Wylie
states that the principal disirili
utiug points will lie Charlotte, Gas
Ionia and Mountain Island.
To complete this gigautic under'
taking the rompauy has now ou its
iay rolls a large force of hands.
The uumber will I si increased just
as rapidly as the help ran lie eu
guged. Another bill undertaking
that will soou be launched by the
Southern Power Company is the
building of a railroad from Great
Falls to one of two points, either
llaacouville or rort Iiwn, S. C.
This will connect with the Chester
and Lancaster at either of the
alsive M lints.
Dr. Wylie statiw that the output
of the plant near holt Mill, form
erly known as the Culaalia Power
Company, has Is-en practically en
gaged. The capacity of this plant
may lie increased by steam power
to the amount of 10,000 primary
and 4, (MM) secondary horse poa er.
The district to lie traversed by
the electrical power fniiu the dif
ferent plants of the Southern Pow
er Company is almut IVi miles in
length and (ill to NO miles in width.
This embraces the valley of the
watershed of the Catawba.
Iu connection with the loss of
power in transmission, Dr. Wylie
states that when his circuit is com
pleted and the different plants are
sending out their electrical forces,
the loss entransit w ill not amount
to more than '1 J per cent. He says
that some people imagine that a
great deal of the power is lost on
account of the distance it count.
With high voltage the loss w ill lie
reduced to a very small per cent.
The oflicers of the Southern Pow
er Company are as follows: W. G.
Wylie, president; 15. N. Duke, fust
vice president; W. S. Iah, second
vice president and engineer iu
charge; Richard It. Arrington, sec
retary and treasurer; . 11. Mar

Deadly Parallel: Alfalfa vs. Clover.

Alfalfa is ready for cutting n

is a strong advantage in dairy farm

at the earliest iHissihle mouth in
the Rpriug. After cutting alfalfa
springs into growth more promptly
than clover and a second crop is
produced withiu eight to six weeks.
Clover lasts two years and alfalfa

So after a Southeruor has Is-en

At Monerey, I am sorry that I
did not see the famous old cypress
trees L'.ismi years old is their est
mated age gnarled and knotted
evergreens, the eiiilxMlinient ot pa
iiem endurance. 1 am also sorry
that I did not see the Sherman
rose. This is a rose which Gen,
Sherman aud a Monterey girl
planted together long teal's la-fore
Sherman Is'canie unions as a com
iiiauder. " Wheu this rose bhsiius,"
said Sherman, "I will come hark
and claim you as my bride." And
the rose bloomed, but Sherman
never came back; is still blooming,
and Shermi.u is iu his grave. The
woman, if I reineiiilier the story
correctly, never married, and died
a lew years ago.
I have already recounted iu these
columns the story of how I encoun
tered the Spanish sM uking waiters
iu a Mexican restaurant and as
neither of us could "savvy" as to
w hat the other was saying, I could
get misttpm-r there. Mr. Thomas
of Indiana, one of my fellow trav
elers, had better luck - or worse
luck, whichever you may choose to
term it. Here is the ease as he
puts it iu his paM'r:
The writer, with two ladies.
went to a Mexican restaurant and
had a genuine Mexican suiim-r.
The hut tamalc and other teu times
hotter Mtntr, seemed to affect Isilli
head ami stomach, as it was with
difficulty that we were able to nav
igate and one of the ladies was
coin s-l led to call a physician all
the next day iu crossing the desert.
No more Mexican supers iu ours,
1 did not get a genuine Mexican
supper, as I have said, but iu Guth
rie I tried "hot chili," which shares
with the "hot tamale'' the place of
honor in cowtioy aud Mexican
menus. Hot chili is a sort of soup
made of chili pcpcr with enough
IsH-f, Is'iins, etc., to season the pep-M-i'.
Hot tauiale is somew hat like
hot chili except that it is ten times
hotter, is a sort of pudding rather
than a soup, ami is cooked in a
corn shuck. I ate my dish of chili
with some relish, but I balked on
the hot tamale ordered at Santa
Cruz, Oil. not, however, until 111 v
tongue had Ix-eu burned into in
sensibility by the pcpicrs and my
dcsicratc unties had made "hot ta
male" the standi, ig joke against
me for the rest of the trip. Un
common iiituie tor the dish out
West is "hotteVh'l," and I have
no amendment to oiler.
Every man's nature is the pro
duct of mixed ami opposing ten

but it is true that there are bad ten
dencies in every good man which
he must keep lighting, and good
tendencies in every bad man which
call him to Is-tter things.
Hut I am not to argue on this
point; what I have to observe is
that while I think the sweetest tune
in the world is, "Home, Sweet
Home," yet in my nature, too,
there is always a keen response to

1 have been living in Heaufort
since 1S93 and 1 have never known
of a man-eating shark being seen in
our waters during that tune. In
fact, I never heard of any such sharks
here infesting our waters.
Ihe shark found about hen is
small and is afraid of a man or a
boy. I have seen fishermen jump
right overboard when sharks were
playing and scare them away. 1
cannot imagine how such a story
should have been started as the one
published in the papers about the
boy being devoured by one at Davis
Shore, which is about twenty-five
miles from here.
I sincerely trust that all the State
apcrs and other paiiers which have
printed this fake shark story will
orrect the same and as conspicu
ously as the first was published.
story of that kind is calculated
hi damage Heaufort and Morehead
City as resorts. Nothing of the kind
happened and nothing of the kind
will hap(en, I am sure.

A Warning to Mothers.
Too much care cannot be used with
small childien during the hot weather
of the summer months to guard agsinst
buwel troubles. As a rule it is only
necessary to give the cliilJ a dose ot
astor oil to correct any disorder of
the bowels. Do not use any substitute,
but give the old f inhumed castor oil,
and see that it is fresh, as rancid oil
nauseates and has a tendency to gripe.
It this does not check the bowels give
