On the fourth page of this issue
of the Home Journal is an article
frbm the Manufacturers’ Record en
titled, “A Big Plan for Georgia
Farmers,” circulated in a bulletin by
the Central of Georgia Railway Co.
This article outlines the plan of an
English syndicate to develop cer
tain sections of Georgia in stock
raising and kindred industries.
The ajtiela speaks for itself; read
The main point accentuated by
the proposed actions of this alleged
English syndicate, is the great need
of Georgia farmers for a nearby
market for their products. It is
known to all men that the possibili
ties of agricultural production in
Georgia are more varied than in
most other states of the union, but
that many produots cannot be sold
at all at profitable prices.
It is true that almost every arti
cle produced on a Georgia farm can
be sold at some time, at some price
and in uncertain quantities, but it is
cotton and ts seed only that can be
sold whenever offered at a regulated
market price, at points remote from
It istrue there is always a market
for corn,wheat, oats, syrup and hay,
but the lack of nearby markets makes
the prices too low for the farmers to
derive any profit from the salo of
It is also a demonstrated fact that
ootton is not profitable when it is
cultivated to tho exclusion of the
food and provender crops.
It is true that peaches,.melons and
certain vegetables can be sold fresh
in season, but tho cost of transpor
tation often consumes all'the profit,
With a regular market for the ag
ricultural products that can be
grown in Georgia, the farmers
would rapidly become entirely indo
pendent of financial aid, the lands
would enhance in value in all sec
tions, tho lands now unoccupied
would bo purchased by progressive
farmers from other states, and the
general prosperity of the state
would increase at once and continu
