y IEKN.V needs “line upon line, pre- drumming up pupils'and run $he at-
cept upon precept, here a little
and there a little,” just as truly os the
children of Israel needed it when these
words were spoken by the prophet.
Vienna’s territory from which she
lias and is drawing trade, is becoming
more limited each year. The construc-
tion of new railroads and multiplication
of villages and rapid growing towns in
this vicinity, and the exhausting lum
ber, shingle and turpentine business in
tliis section lias greatly injured Vien
na’s trade. The future trade Vienna
will get from timber, shingles, lumber
and turpentine will not build her up
much. Take the question of territory
and towns, draw a.line from Drayton
by Kichwood to Tippettviile, all the
territory and trade south of this line
will have to be ceded to the. Seaboard
Air Line railroad. Goneywltb a depot,
telegraph, express and postofiice, stores
and still growing, will hurt Vienna,
tfoi'dele’s railroad facilities, fine freight
rates and the.enterprise of her people
will sap Vienna’s trade to our very city
limits on the south. Richwood with
her commissary and stores take some
of Vienna’s trade. Pitts, Seville, Ro
chelle, Abbeville and Tippettviile are
all prosperous and will grow larger-
wili always hold the trade territory
within four or five miles of Vienna. It
is quite probable that a railroad will
run from Cordele to HawkiDSvllle and
* then Vienna’s trade South and South
east will be forever cut off. Draw a
line from Flint river by the Camp
ground by Findlay and three miles cost
of Findlay and all the trade territory
North will go to Byromville, Montezu
ma, Findlay, Pinehurst, Unadilla and
Hawkinsville. Amorious will get all
beyond Flint river, and Drayton will
get. some trade on the east side of the
i ^ river.
L The once fine trading territory of
P»" Vienna is lost forever. Some ope may
r .say Vienna hn? the court house, the
jail, the poor house and a grave yard.
How is q court house going to build up
this city? The hotels and boarding
houses will get a little patronage twice
a'year during court, some will buy a
few cigars, and bring.a few dozen eggs
to sell during court. The jail inhabl-
tance will not help. Vienna much, the
poor house will be a burden, the grave
yard will only cause a few coffins and
shrouds to be sold. How will this
build up Vienna? Let Vienna look to
the living to build her up and not the
dead. Vienna , has scarcely enongh
territory even well developed, to hold
her own. The trade use to come here
because there was na where else to go,
butuotsohow. Our merchants will
have to advertise and hustle as they
have never done before. If our mer
chants sit supremely down and wait for
customers to come in from Sumter,
Wilcox, Macon and Pulaski counties,
they will soon be in the hands of the
' sheriff (I mean their business will.
West Point. LaGrange, Hogansville,
Grantville, Newnan, and Palmetto, use
to get large trade from Troup, Heard,
Merriwother, Cbweta, Carroll, Fayette
and Cambell counties, but railroads
and other causes cut off their large
trade territory. Today West Point is
truly a manufacturing city; LaGrange
is a great college and manufacturing
city; Hogansville and Grantville are
manufacturing towns; Newnan with
tier mills, factories, foundries and fine
schools in one of the finest little cities
in Georgia. Take Gainesville, her
h mills and colleges have made heraeity.
B When Griffin, Hampton, Barnesville,
^ Jackson and Forsyth lost their trade
territory they began to build mills,
schools and colleges. There is only one
alternative for Vienna to become much
of a city, and that is to become a man
ufacturing and a college town. Dooly
couuty people spend fifteen thousand
xlollars annually in sending their chit
kiren off to college, and this will in
crease, f. Let ua buildup a college in
Vienna; why not? Let the school
board publish and circulate a fine cat
alogue of the school, give attractive
cum, etc. Let Profs: Lasse ter and
Powell spend some of the vacation

tendance up to five hundred. Introduce
the military feature into the school if
necessary. You cannot build up a*
college in a year. LaGrange has been
sixty years establishing her colleges.
Start the foundation fora college now.
In the near future Georgia will have
three million population, her wealth
will be greatly increased; her children
will have to have schools and colleges
to attend. The South is the coming
manufacturing country of the union,
especially cotton. After the civil war
the property of the South was destroy
ed, and hence thei'e has been no spare
capital until now to invest in cotton
mills, etc. The South has greatly in-
creased in wealth-, so by forming joint
stock companies the capital can be
commanded. The discovery of coal in
Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Tex
os with good railroad facilities has
made steam power equally as cheap as
water power. The New England states
have old and worn out machinery, while
the South can have new and improved
machinery, and as we have the cotton
right on the field, the Northern and
Eastern mills cannot compete with us
long. England has been manufacturing
majority of 'the cotton, and so she
controls the market, but if the United-
States manufacture a million more
bales, then we will manufacture a
majority of the cotton, hence we can
control the market. We then can say
to all foreign countries, "if you want
cotton bid up and we can let you have
it.” There is a great future for the
cotton farmers and the manufacturer’s
of Georgia. England and the North
cannot long compete with the cotton
growing state in cotton manufacturing.
England’s greatness and glory is in
her navy and manufacturing Industry.
Some of the ships Uncle Sam destroyed
in the recent war with Spain were con
structed by England—this proves to all
that we have the strongest navy in the
world today. We furnish England with
the raw material, so if we can manu
facture our own cotton England will
have her machinery to rust and her
hips to rot in her harbor.
With a well regulated tariff the
South con grow rich raising and manu
facturing cotton, i Savannah is to even
rival New Orleans as a cotton market
Georgia’s geographical location is the
best of all the cotton states. Vienna
with two great railroads, one going to
the coal fields of Alabama and extend
ing to the sea; cotton milts here will
pay as well or better than any place on
the globe. The cotton mills at West
Point, LaGrange and Hogansville all
in Troup county manufactures every
bole of cotton Troup county produces.
Let all the cotton Dooly county pro
duces be manufactured in the county.
Let the Cotton Oil company of Vienna
proceed to organize a cotton mill for
the city. Locate it just north of the
oil mill, then you can gin the cotton,
make oil, meal and hulls, then make
cloth of the cotton
Lets have a cotton mill and a college
for Vienna. J. D. Norris.
