OUR CITY’S FUTURE.
ATHENS FIVE YEARS FROM NOW—
PREDICTIONS FOR THE
The Reasons Why These Predictions are
Made. Opinions or Leading Busi
ness Men—Natural Advantages
of Our Town and Section-
Increase of Manu
Have we any right to make predic
tions for the future of our town? The
gift of prophecy is no longer the heri
tage of man, but the powers of discern
ment and judgement are still his.
We look at the growth of otlier'towns,
we exanine into the causes of their
growth, we compare their natural and
-artificial advantages with our own and
having considered it all, we draw' our
conclusions, and those conclusions jus
tify the prediction that no tow'n in our
State will make more steady or sub
stantial progress than will the town of
Rooking into the future not more
than five years distant, we seem to see
crowds of passengers arriving daily in
our midst, coming from all directions
by way of our live or six railroads all
running into our town. These stran
gers alight from the incoming trains,
and stretch themselves as they walk
the platform of a great union
depot into the carshed of which all
trains run. Our strangers then hail
hacks rnd omnibuses, and are whirled
through brilliantly lighted, macada
mized streets to a palatial hotel whose
fifth or sixth story looks down with
mild contempt upon all. lesser, meaner
The new arrivals finu that this great
hotel is completer in every particular,
and they learn by inquiry that ic is the
property of a joint stock company,
whose roll contains the names of all the
public spirited men of Athens. If any
one of these new' arrivals be of an in
quiring turn of mind, he will learn
that the members of this stock company,
are wise and all satisfied that abetter
investment was never entered into by
them than this new hotel. Walking
out on the streets, he will see on every
side splendid stone and iron front store
houses and offices. If he walks into the
lower part of our city, he will see great
ware-houses, factories, railroad shops
and machine .works. Going through
the resident portion of the town, he w r ill
see the handsomest dwelling liousce in
the State besides innumerable colleges
and quiet houses. Taking the dummy
line he will be hurried out to a park as
beautiful as any in the South, where
everything lias been done for our com
fort and pleasure.
If he will look closely into the busi
ness affairs of our city he will find that
it is one of the greatest cotton markets
in the state, and, what is even better,
that a great proportion of this cotton is
not exported, but is used in the making
cf cloths in our own factories, which
will be numbered among the largest and
most complete south of the line. He
will find a city with from 20,000 to 25,-
000 inhabitants, a thrifty, pushing, en
ergetic and united people with men at
the lead who are fully capable of man
aging the affairs of a great aud growing
He will find that the capitalists of 1
Athens ye not men who have locked
their money up in iron hound safes, but
are wide awake, progressive inen, who
know' that the only real value of money
is in its use.
This is what the “stranger W'ithin our
gates” will find in five years from now'.
The pictures we have drawn is not an
idk dream of the imagination—it is a
prophecy, a prophecy as true as the
words of a seer. And the fulfillment of
the prophecy does not require the work
ing of miracles; it will he a miraele if
they do not prove true, for forces have
been set in operation which must bring
about such results.
The great raiiroad movement to which
we have referred on Several occasions
is the first item iu our list of reasons
for these predictions. Then, as w'e all
well knoiv, we'are the center of a great
farming region which has already made
our town one of the greatest cotton mar
kets in the state, and new regions will
be opened np by tbe new railroads
which will be built. We are certain to
have new factories. A gentleman who
is in a position to know' and who lias
been'^carrying on an ' extended corres
pondence with some northern firms, in
formed us a day or two ago that our
manufacturing capacity will double it
self in the next three or four years. The
watersaround Athens arc not naviga
ble, but they afford water power as good
as can be found anywhere in our state.
The South Oconee river is one .enor
mous mill race, affording sufficient pow
er to run any kind of machinery.
In addition to this there is that which
.Is even more hopeful, namely, the fact
that our owm people are waking up to
the fact that their destiny is a great one
and that it rests in their own hands.
When a people really learns this they
are on the high road to success. Our
men are enthusiastic and feel that we
have m store many good things,and the
only thing needed to set them to work
is concerted action with a cool-headed
leader. For these two things The Bax-
-xer is anxiously pleading. As to our
predictions-of Athens’ great growth in
point of population, we simply state
that a thriving town means a town
whose population is increasing. As soon
as outsiders see that we are growing
outsiders are coming to us. Besides
this we are as certain to have great rail
road shops as we are to have railroads.
These, together with the new. factories
bring workmen, workmen bring their
jatnilies, families briug trade, and trade
Col. T. W. Kucker remart ed yester
day that he knows that in the course of
the next five years theie will be resi
dences in Athens as fine as can be seen
anywhere iu the state. The dummy
line will be started, the park laid out,
the streets improved, and the beauty as
well as the success of our town is as
Some who read this article may smile
and regard it as a day dream, but if they
will wait five years they wil^find it the
most realistic dream of which they have

He Goes to Cut his Wheat, Is Pfohibited
and Murderously Stabbed,
Homeb, Jvint, 17.—Editor Banner:
Quite a cutting affray took place in
this county last Wednesday.
Mack Whitfield went-to work on the
farm of Beke.r and Robt. Moss last
spring. They sowed some wheat, Whit
field was to receive liis share. Later
the Moss bovs and Whitfield had a
quarrel; Whitfield quit. In the mean
time the Moss brothers told Whitfield
that he could have his wheat. Last
Wednesday he went to cut it. The
Moss boys and a negro they had hired
named Grant, came upon him in the
field. They forbade him to cut the
wheat. Words ensued. They tried to
close in on Whitfield, but for a while,
he kept them at bay. Finally Baker
Moss rau around and caught Whitfield.
At once the negro, Grant, ran to Moss’
assistance. They held Whitfield, while
Kobt. Moss, Baker’s brother, and only
fourteen years old, came up behind
Whitfield and stabbed him in the hack'
three times, with a knife. The parties
left him and he fell. But lie managed
ts rise to his feet, and. went staggering
out of the field; but from loss of blood,
he became weak, and fell by tbe road
side, where he was found, and taken to
At last accounts his physicians had
little hope for him.
This section is somewhat stirred*up
over the matter.
At last hearing no arrests had been
Mack Whitfield is said tohave been a
very inoffensi ve man. He has a host of
relatives and friends, who, doubtless,
wil, see to it that the parties are fairlv
and severely dealt with by the law.
