Bear Advertiser: The Exposition
bids fair to 1x3 a grand thing wbon
completed. Bat that point seems
somo distance off yet, as tbe buildings
aro not all in order , uor are tbo

us soon aa be cun get proper accom
modntions. Parties from tbo coast
who only expect to make ono visit to
tbo Exposition should wait until tbo

thought, all will bo in readiness. Will

what I seo and learn touching tho

A WORD OF COMMENDATION
Mr. EdUor: Your paper of 24th ult.
contains somo very valuable sugges
tions thrown out by “Observer,” all of
which remarks should bo taken hom6
by tbo peoplo of this section. “Ob
aervor” might bavo continued bis list
and nddod numerous enterprises
which would give employment and
money to our county peoplo and build
up yoar city. Paper factories would
ntilizo our palmettocs, which abound
on all our pine lands. Straw packing
machines could bo put to good use on
all our rico plantations. They have
been successfully tried by tbo Messrs.
Wylly of Darien, and a largo amount
of winter forngo saved at a very small
cost Canning companies would pay
a handsomo percentage, and there is
no reason why we should not engngo
in them, as the best canned fruits nnd
vegetables that I have over eaten bavo
been put up by the ladies of Camden
nnd Wayne counties. Lot us imitate
the example of a county in tho Old
Dominion State, whoro threo gcnllo-
inen will can for salo this year 450,-
000 cans of fruit.
His idea of an improvement compa
ny is an excellent one, and no city of
its size offers abetter investment than
yours. Tho cotton factory wc should
have by nil means. Tho little State
of South Carolina has set us an exam
plo worthy of emulation. They built
aud placed in operation this year four
cotton factories, and are now building
two more, nnd nil with southern cap
ital. The investment would prove
pecuniarily n good one, aud your city
would reap all the benefit. Tbit*
spring I suw six or eight bags of
inland cotton in tho seed in one of
your warehouse*', awaiting shipment.
This cotton was grown in Camden
county, on the Littlo Satilla, carried
across in a Unit, uud sent to Suvan-
nah to be ginned. Tho bags wero so
largo and heavy that it took six men
to handle them. Of course as long as
wo put off building our factory Suvuu-
uuh continues to be benefited. She
not only gins it for us, but makes the
seed into oil, into feed, to fertilizers,
Editor Advertiser and Appeal:
Your article upon letter discussing
our needs and suggesting a plan for
tbe improvement of onr city, in which
you invited a farther communication,
going more into detail, come out du
ring my absenco on business, nnd I
hasten, upon my return, to reply.
First—A word of review. That let
ter laid down tho necessity for im
provement of water-front, instancing
tbo fact that we lost tho shipment of
11,000,000 feet of lumber last year for
want of terminal facilities, which
meant a loss to onr city of many
Second—Every old house has been
repaired, noarly all enlarged, seventy
new houses of all sorts erected; thoro
is not a vacant house in town and fif
ty to sovonty moro houses would bo
occupied at once, if built, by residents.
Third—There aro a largo number of
people who desire to move here, but
who do not wish to bnild and thus lo
cate thoraselvcs permanently, until
they lmvo had timo to determine
whether it is to their interest to ro-
rnain. To illdstrate, tho writer rents
honse; although his family have
been absent all summer, bo does not
daro to give it up, for tho reason that
if ho docs thcro will be no vacant
house to rent when his family returns.
To illustrate further, five non-resi
dents bavo applied for that very house
in the past three months, and it is n
very ordinary sort of a house at best.
Fourth—Tho wholesale trado is in
its infancy hero. In groceries, hay,
grain, etc., Ohoss, Carloy A Co., Duck
Co., Franklin A Co., and others enu
apply the trade, but tho very fact
that they aro commanding a hand
somo trado demonstrates the necessi
ty for increased facilities, for they nrC
not doing ouo titbo of tbe business
which ought to come. Good whole
sale dry goods, drug, furnituro and a
first-class clothing storo aro ncodod.
Each of these would toud to increase
tho wholesale grocery trado and trade
in bay, grain, die., for wore these
wholesale stores boro, they would per
mit purchasers to buy all their goods
without the necessity of buying ouo
sort of goods hero nnd another in Sa-
annnh. Wholesale doalers will not
como bore nnd build stores, as a rulo;
they will come, aud reut, nnd seo what
success tboy have, and then they may
build. Storos aro neodod fitted for
such a business. If they wero built,
they would bo occupied.
Fifth—Wo also need manufacturing
udustricK. Wo can bavo them if wo
will, upon plan outlined in former let
Why ia it, Mr. Editor, that our peo
ple of the South give to the North the
woajKJtia to injure u» with ? Wo see
by your pa|M.r and the Savannah Enc*
that tbe cotton States pay to tbe
North $150,000,000 annually for
wheat, corn and oats, ami in return
we get their aburcand ridicule. There
are uo better Inn In in the U. S. than
the lands upon the Sat ilia. Tbe jxm-
ple neglect them, aud iustead of mnk-
iug the furm ubo.'.ud with fruits aud
vegetables and grain, our people* of
Camden, Glynn and Wayne quit this
rpauly and independent life* for cue of
dependence iq»ou the timber market,
uiiowing themselves to get jk>T>?er ev
ery day. Show me a man in this
county out of debt, with a good horse
and fat hogs, aud, Mr. Editor, be will
toll you that he baa loug quit timber
and lives on bis farm.
For fear I have trespassed upon
your time and space, I will close.
*. Sen ex.
Satilla River, Camden Co., Ga.
We are in receipt of tbe first copy of
the Hawkinsville News. It resembles
the Bispatch in appearance enough to
have been printed in the same office.
Guiteau’s name is now pronounced
Git-tow. After court it will be
changed to Git-hcuqi.
Sixth—tho writer said iu former letter
that it was not tho mission of railroads
to bnild towns. A railroad company
works for its stockholders nud prop-
rty. It only invests its money iu
tho building of towns and cities whoro
it aims tho lands. It is, in u word,
governed by self interest. If tho
jority of tbe stock of our railroads was
owned by men who also owned a ma
jority of thu laud iu Brunswick, we
might safely fold our arms aud look
with certainty to tho rapid growth of
our city without especial aid or effort
on our part, but, unfortunately, not
dollar's worth of our roads is owned
in Brunswick, nnd neither rond has
lauded interests of any importance in
tho city, Railroads, save in those ex
ceptional instances where they own
city as well ns roads, simply offer the
opportunity t«> tho truo parties at in
terest, the owners of tho laud, the meu
who iu a hundred ways make their
living iu the city, to make a city of
importance, with a great business,
themselves. Give the railroads cen
tering hero one-half or two-thirds of
our Unimproved lauds, conditioned, if
you will, upon their operating their
roads solely iu tho iuterest of Bruns
wick, or even without conditions, and
they will bnild a pros|>erou» city here,
and furnish all tho facilities needed
for a # great business, simply liecauso
it will bo to their interest to do it.—
But tho same law of self interest so
all pervading (sometimes, it must be
admitted, short-sighted) governs the
land owner, nnd instead oi giving, at
every new railroad rumor ho hugs his
title deeds closer and trembles nt an
offer for fear he will sell too low. It
should be remembered that onr two
railroads cross tho S.F. A W. H. It. re
spectively 00 and 40 miles from Bruns
wick. That road enters a great com
mercial city, with all facilities for
vast and ever increasing business, with
ample capital for any such iucreaso.
You might take tho best citizens of
Brunswick, thoso who have been tru-
•hi iu her interests, and put them in
charge of our two roads, and if buy
ers from Savannah order over our
roads aud 8 F. A \V. freights into
Suvsnuah, they would be compelled, in
the interest of their employers, the
roads, to l*t them go there, mid
There is bat one way outside of
making it to the interest of railroads
to build up their terminal points by
giving them ownership in land, and
that is arbitrary legislative enactment
compelling them to ship to but one
point, nnd no such legislation is pos
sible. The most that could be hoped
for in that respect is already given in
the M. A B. Railroad lease and sale
legislation, and the act creating the
Railroad Commission, and that does
not and should not attempt to di
vert freights from tho channel given
it by tho consignee or consignor—it
only seeks to prevent unjust discrim-
nations nnd combinations intended to
We are doing a heavy lumber and
naval store business here; take Me
Collongh, Cook, Ileppard, Bacon,
Wood, Wilder, Chess, Carley A Co.
and other*, who have put their capital
hero, away, nnd the business would
seek other markets.
To do a cotton business we must
bavo cotton buyers. The most we
can hope from tbe ronds is steam com
munication with Now York, friendly
interest aud co-operation in uecessa*
ry work inaugurated at homo by our
own people, iu banks, etc., etc. HaU-
roads don't buy cotton, they only move
it to mnrket.
If these nre not axiomatic proposi
tions, they nro, at lenst, fouud truo
in tho experience of cities, towns nml
railroads all over the world.
The building of a city, tho exten
sion and increase of its bnsiuess, is nn
easier matter than nt first appears—
activity, energy, push among its in
habitants attract attention—invite
now comers uud capital.
But tbe iuitiativo must be taken, in
no matter bow small a way, first nt
home. Capital and |>opulation dou't
go to dead, but to live towns.
Atlanta is n striking illustration.—
For yonrs that city grow with limited
capital and that mainly faith in the
town—all workod together—all talked
Atlanta. Thoro was enterprise, dash
and vim, and now she has nmple capi
tal and au assured future,so bright that
propbocios for tho next ten years are
safe nt nuy rato inside of 100,000 pop
Scvouth—Take tho past experiences
of Brunswick at times whou every
thing looked as bright nearly as now,
and say whether the making or mar
ring of our fortuno is uot mainly in
our own hands. As a method of co
operative effort, the former letter sug-
gosiod a Brunswick Improvement
Company, undor a comprehensive
charter, that would permit erection of
dwelling anil storo houses, wharves,
manufacturing nnd any improvement
As it is ovidcut that all our ready
cash capital nearly is invested in ac
tive business, nnd uh wo hnvo a vast
dead capital, a drain upon our pock-
ots for taxeH, in nuimprovod land, up
on which individuals cannot borrow
money, but upou which a company
could, it wns sugested that appraisers
Ik* appointed by company, value lands
subscribed, nnd stock be issued for
pnr value; also that chjIi subscriptions
bo received; that company go ou mar
ket witti lands thus deeded to it, aud
borrow oil a part to improve the rei
of its property, erecting *1 welling:
stores, wharves, etc., etc., as the Inis:
ness growth of the city authorized.—
That is so plain it needs uo
Lion. The only matter ii|n>ii which
there is necessity for going into de
tail is upon cash subscriptions. It is,
of course, evident that such a compa
ny cannot proceed without somo motl
ey to pay taxes on land it acquires,
office relit, printing ami ordinary cur
rent expeu**** The idea of cash sub
scription would be to open books in
sny Atlanta, Macon mid New York ns
well as in Brunswick, the calls upou
subscriptions per yeah to be not less
than five nor more than ten percent.,
calls to be made by a majority of
board of directors, with limitation
above, as needed. Could we get cash
subscriptions ? Suppose wc subscribe
fifty or oue hundred thousand dollars
worth of laud at a fair valuation. Does
any one doubt that under a proper
charter capitalists could be found who
would subscribe V Surely Mr. Seney,
who has siilisci ilied $50,000 to a cotton
factory at Augusta, Ga., not on the
Vide-Seney system of roads, would, if
approached after a good land sub
scription as a basis, make a subscrip
tion of some amount, at ocean termi
nus of his own line of roads, and Col.
Cole, the great origiuator of the sys
torn, who is also into the Augusta fac
tory, would do the same. We might
safely expect as much from Mr. Wolffe
and the other brond-iiiiuded and
liberal owners of the B. .k A. Rail
road. Tho good ).«opic of Macon
wonld seo a safe investment, nnd if
part of the owners of our roads took
stock, the 01110111 would be likely to do
the same, aud mauy of our busiuesa
men au 1 firms would, no doubt, take
•tome cash subscriptions on terms pro-
Tln-rc ,h nothin-* hk.
only way we cau utilize onr'vacant
lands; we need it to destroy that nn-
fortunate feeling which keeps onr
business men from working together.
Witbont it we may bug onr title
deeds, pat fancy values on onr prop
erty, which finds no buyers, and in
tbe future, when it isjoo late, raoarn
an opportunity lost.
It is unfortunate that we are so near
Savannah. That city onoe relatively
occupied much tbo same position to
ward Charleston, about a hundred
miles north, that we occupy toward
Savannah, Charleston doing tbe cream
of tbe business; now Savannah booms
way ahead, and tbe same onergy and
perseveranco which has raised hor to
tbe second cotton port of the Soatb,
can give us who are not exorbitant in
our demand or extravagant iu our de
sires u handsome business, which
would benefit Savanuab, if she could
only see it, as she will some day.
It is at times a safety-valve to let
off steam and “cuss” our enemies. If
they are rich and powerful they can
stand it; self iuterest governs them
as it does, or should do, us. The best
way to get even with an adversary
to emulate his virtues nud avoid his
We have a hurbor unsurpassed on
tbo Soutb-Atlantic const; islauds as its
sentirfels, with soil of unsurpassed fer
tility; live oak forests, which with the
revival of ship building, are enor
mous sources of wealth; a climate sur
passing that of Italy; u tract of pine
forest 150 by 240 miles iu extent, tbe
timber of which is worth millions up
on millions of dollars; soil from which
these pines grow admirable for agri
culture, sheep husbandry, fruit nnd
olivo growing, vineyards, truck farm
ing, otc.; our roads tap ami traverse
tho vast cotton licit of the Mouth.
Insurance at our jiorts iu Georgia is
far less than in tho Gulf. Nature—
locution on tho const, and commuui
cation with tho interior, point to our
port as the eoaliug station of the near
future. Ship building wns tried suc
cessfully horc in tho early part of this
century, and later, in 1855, by Mr.
Jewett, of Maine.
Lot us ariso equal to the occasion,
take this plan, discuss it, modify it,
perfect it; at least lot us make the tri
al. If wo move ourselves, wo may
safely presume that tho railroad own
ers will meet us half way.
It is ploasant to look upon tho
bright side of all pictures, to prophe
sy only pleasant things, to sit quietly
waiting for prosperity to shower its
bounty upon us, “to wait for some
thing to turn tip,” to expect others to
do our work. With a faith in this
city tiy tho sea, this favorite of na
ture’s bounty, unsurpassed by any
man, tho writer believes tlmt its fu
ture is mainly in onr own hands to
mnkc or innr.
If the scheme proposed is not the
true one, if there is some better way,
let us discuss tho matter and adopt
some method, nml be up and doing.—
It is better to go wrong than t-» stand
still. The world is moving. Rrogivs*
is the motto of the age.
