PRICE HAS BEEN DOUBLED.
Great Jump in the Cost of Cotton Ties.
Now there’ll be a mighty howl
throughout the country. After the
facts are kuown, it will probably be
conceded that there are good grounds
for the kick.
As is fully knowu, hundreds of
thousands of dollars worth of cotton
ties are used throughout this region
For several mouths past dealers in
Augusta have been trying to obtaiu
from manufactuiers an idea of just
what the price of ties would be this
season. Some had considerable stock
left over from last year, which they
would sell at once did they know the
price. Others were besieged by their
country patrons lor news on the sub¬
ject, so that they might know just
what preparations to muse. But all
the tie manufactuaers are in a combine
and they refused to divulge their sell¬
ing price for this season. The an¬
nouncement was made today, however,
and it has created consternation al¬
Last year ties were sold to dealers at
65 cents per bundle; this year the trust
says the. price is $1.221-2 in 2,(X)0
bundle lots, and $1.27 1-2 for smaller
How is that for ?
The trust also held tbeir quotations
until it was too late for dealers to ne¬
gotiate for imported ties.
It is a fact also that within the past
month the price of bagging has gone
up 1-2 cent a yard. Ragging is now
quoted at 5 5-8 in lots of 2,000 rolls or
more, and 1-4 c«nt higher in smaller
quantities. There are only six bag¬
ging manufactories iu this country,
but all arc in a trust controlled by the
concerns at New York, St. Louis and
Charleston. Dealers here fear that
there will be another rise in the price
Gold men iu the city are very sore
about this jump in prices. They say

The report of the interstate com¬
merce commission for the year ended
Judc 30, 1805, shows the total railway
mileage on that date to have been
180,667 miles, an increase of 1,048.
During the year fourteen roads were
abandoned, nine merged, thirty-two
reorganized and twenty-eight consoli¬
dated. There appears from the report
to have been a decreased efficiency iu
in passenger service and an increase
in the number of men employed by
railways of 5,426, as compared with
the previous year. There was an in¬
crease in the amount of railway capital
during the year aggregating $188,729,-
The gross earnings of the railways
for the year ending June 30, 1895,
were $1,075,371,462, an increase of
$2,006,665. Passenger revenue was
$252,246,180, showing a decrease of
$33,103,378. Freight revenue increased
The number of railway employes
killed during the year was 1,811, and
the number injured 24,696, a decrease
of twelve killed and an increase of
2,274 injured, as compared with the
previous year. The number of pas¬
sengers killed was 170; injured 2,225,
showing a decrease of 154 in the num¬
ber killed aud 669 in those injured.
The July returns from the Agricul¬
tural Department at Washington shows
the condition of this year’s corn crop
to be another record breaker, with 2,-
154,600,000 bushels as the crop, or
3,400.000 bushels more than last year.
The total wheat crop is figured at
434,776,000 bushels, against 467,102,947
last year. The July estimate of cotton
is higher than in any year since 1887.
The crops throughout the entire
Chattahoochee Valley have suffered se¬
verely from the recent heavy rains
which caused the river to overflow its
banks at many points below Columbus.
In many places the crops are an entire
loss, and as it is past the season for
planting, many farmers will suffer heav

NEW LINE TO THE WEST.
With regard to the Tennessee, Geor¬
gia and Atlantic railroad, Mr. Rich¬
ards, one of the promoters, has spokeu
“I am looking for a direct route be
ween Augusta and Chdttahdbga. The
preliminary survey will show which is
the nearest and best route to follow,
and then if the towns are so anxious
for the road we will deviate and tap
those who make the most liberal propo¬
sitions. Augusta and Chattanooga
are both pulling for the location of the
general repair shops, but this has not
been decided by us yet.
“We will accomplish one thing that
is certain. We will make Augusta
about eighteen miles nearer Atlanta.
We will make the small towns between
Chattanooga and Augusta many miles
nearer Atlanta and New York, and we
will open and make possible the devel¬
opment of one of the richest and most
valuable mineral sections in the state.
It is not like building a road through
the pities or across the praties, for we
have the section already developed
through which this road will run.”
In answer to an inquiry as to the
success of the enterprise, Mr. Richards
The building of the line is now as¬
sured. Our contract with the under¬
writers of the bonds has practeally been
completed and only detail work remains
to be done. I have recently visited a
few towns on the proposed lines and
have met with unvaried success. Our
proposition to subscribers to require
no payment until the road is finished,
and the subscription being to the first
mortgage bonds, is one that strikes
“The counties through which we
pass, instead of donatiug money for
stock, are required to make a subscrip¬
tion to a limited amount of bonds
which will be worth par the day that
payment is required. The road really
costs the community nothing.
