The weather is too hot for a coolness
between Savannah and Brunswick.
A weather prophet died in Boston
yesterday. There arc several who
yet live. But providence nitty remove
them at an early day.
The Bush and Black Diamond allitir
in Behring sen will give Mr. Blaine
an opportunity to give the British
lion’s tail a vigorous twist.
If the craze among the negroes in

The present legislature is a friend
of the ex-confederate soldier. Mr.
Montgomtry, ol Marion, has intro

The great battle over the terms
upon which the state road shall be
leased, has opened in Atlanta. Dr.
Felton fired the first gun. And it was
a loud one. Long days will he con
sumed in the discussion.

Gov. Lowry has got the “nippers”
on Sullivan at last. Now let the
slugger he given a striped suit aud

Mississippi ropk pile. Wc hope lie

os he hit Kilrain.
The irreverent members of the
fourth estate now refer to the
“breeches maker,” Wanamaker, as
“Moneymaker.” Is there no protec
tion for greatness? This latest out
rage should’ receive swift, unerring,
severe and blistering punishment.
Let no guilty editor escape.
It would appear from an interview
with Col. Hawkins, in the Savannah
News, that the new road to Savannah
is in rather a nebulous state. The
Colonel was very non-committal.
There is a suspicion abroad that the
Central has got its finger in this
Ireshly baked pic. The Central is
famous for this. The Colonel, how
ever, assured the reporter that ?50,000
would insure the independent line.
Congressman John Allen of Mississippi
maintains Ids national reputation as a wag.
He began a speech to an immense gathering
at a Confederate veterans' reunion a few
days ago in this way: “Ladies, gentlemen
and fellow-rolonels.” This was followed by

Nothing tcmltj more to build up a
community than small manufactories,
and in these Thomasville is sadly de
ficient. Wc have come to rely almost
entirely upon our winter business
in hotels, hoarding houses and north
ern visitors’patronage, and are paying
little or no attention to the all thc-
year-round business. This tdiouM not
he so. It is true wc arc growing, aud
growing moderately fast, hut we
should take advantage of the oppor
tunities given ih, and build up every
conceivable industry. We purchase
from 25,000 to 50,000 crates and in
numerable barrels here every season
for our pear crop. These ought to he
made here. We waste thousands of
dollars worth of fmit which ought to

doors, sash, blinds, etc., which could
and ought to he made here. We
ought to have an iron foundry, and
any number of other enterprises
which could he induced to conic here
with a little etlort. Now, there are
quite a number of these enterprises
located at points not half so desirable
as ours, that, could he induced to conic
with a little effort. Let our people
make that effort, and the Amerieus
Recorder has presented a plan to that
end which suits our case so well that
wc adopt it. It says:
There is not so much risk ol failure, and
there is greater diversity of employment
mi I better wages. There are no strikes or
sudden suit dowr.s, throwing hundreds out
of employment. •►Small manufactories,
properly-managed, build up ffito large on*s
ami build on n firm foundation, .'or they
know by experience the want of the market
and work to supply them. Too often all
the capital, in large manufactories, is ex
pended in building ami machinery, leaving
too little to work upon, and as the first
year is always an experiment, the losses
often cat up the small working capital and
work is suspended.
We need a number of small manufactories
and wc can secure them at a comparatively
small cost and without any great exertion.
There arc many small and profitable manu
factories which could lie located here if our
people would take one-third or one-half
the stock. The money for this stock could
be easily secured by the organization of an
investment company upon a plan similar to
the x loan and building associations. Hay
organize an investment, company with a
thousand shares of $100 each, payable at the
rate of one dollar per month on each share.
This would give one thousand dollars per
month to he invested by the directors in the
stock of small manufactories. The directors
could Advertise that they were ptepared to
take a certain proportion of stock in manu
factories to he located here, and we have no
douht but many could be secured. By
tul investment and management this
stock could lie made to pay handsome divi
dends, and thus not only would the city he
bem fitted by increased population and
trade, but the stockholders would realize a
fair percent, on their investment. In eight
years we would have ouc hundred thousand
dollars invested in manufactories without
the investors having felt the losses of the

Balancing the Books.
Our exports and imports came
nearer balancing for the fiscal year
recently closed than at any time in
a quarter of a century, merchandise
imports exceeding exports by only 82,
725,000. Our exports for the last
fiscal year increased 8-1(1,000,000 and
our imports 820,000,000 over the fig
ures for the preceding year. But our
specie exports exceeded imports by
807,078,000 against an excess of 81”,-
000,000 for the previous year. Until
1870 the merchandise exports from
this country never exceeded imports
any three years in succession; trom
1870 to 1887 every year showed an
excess of exports which varied from
826-1,000,000 iD 1879 to 820,000,000
in 1887. In 1888 the balance turned
again and exports fell 828,000,000
behind imports. The exports of
gold last year are stated by
advance sheets of the bureau
of statistics to have been the greatest
