The new year will be greeted with
a spirit of optimism on the part of
business men that has seldom ever
prevailed here to such an extent In tlio
Past. Last year the tradesman “sot
his” from the panic, and this year the
farmer took his medicine In the shape
of short crops and short prices. Ifow
the bubble caused by overtrading and
strained credit has fully collapsed, and
all lines have found their footing
during the past few months and are
recovering surely. If rather slowly, on
sound, conservative basis.
Her diversified Industries and latent
natural resources saved Macon the
pinch of the panic as experienced In
other less fortunate cities and the 111
effecta were of ahorter duration here
than elaewhere. Slneo the movement
of the cotton crop began In earnest
Macon business men have not corn-
gained. The bankers report collec
tions as unusually good, while with
the wholesalers and retailers and all
other lines, obligations have been
bundled In a satlafactory manner.
President Powell, of the Clearing
House association, states that sub-
atsiitlal industrlea experience no dif

the year 1109. "Right now we will
have no trouble lu landing Just what
we want with a little co-operation."
he said. "We need that tourist hotel,
and a fino commercial hotel, and we
fjeed that new building being talked
by the Chamber of Commerce. I be
lieve that you will see them material
ise ao quickly that even the most per
sistent optimists will be surprised.”
The wholesale grocers are well
enough pleased with the result of
their yea Fa work, and are looking for-
ard to something very much better
during the year which will be ush
ered In tomorrow. Perhaps In a
material way this clan* of trade has
more greatly benefited by expansion
thnn any other during the year 1901.

As.for the growth of the city's pop

deal may be said. The demand for
houses Is now really grwb r than the
supply. New families are moving in
every day. These are cltlsins of a
substantial class, and not floato**.
Plnns that have been made In many

workers. The Central railway alma

distribution and collection of freight.

also to be spent In additions to »h«
already magnificent shop equipment.

Manufacturers have made great
strides In reaching out for new terri

and In other countries. It would be
a surprise to Macon to know how

It may be safely stated that the
