Why Not Send it to the World
From the copy of Hon. (!. W. Me
Haley's seech delivered at l-ong
Creek recently on Indialfofthe Dis
trict Fair enterprise we take the fol
lowing extracts, and the thoughts
advanced therein should bo well con
sidered by every resident of lirant
county. He savs: "The people of
( rant county, in my opinion, are
endowed with as much enterprising
spirit as those more remote from our
once golden country. The people
are now awakening from that leth
argy of idle thought to a new ap
proach of another epoch, which has
been predicted for some time that
is after I'nele Sam's mKs1i is worn
off that the country is what (he
citizens nuke il. However, tho peo
ple heretofore, with tho country
aUnindiug with luxuriant bunch
grass and our placer mines, the gold
as it were lying ttsn (he surface,
diil not have to strive. Hut now
they fully realise the necessity of
home manufacture, in evidence of
which two roller mills iu tho last
twelve mouths and another in pro
cess of construction, have Uvn built.
And the next object in view is to
encourage capitalists from abroad to
engage with us iu building factories
of all kinds, and morcoscf iitlly the
building of mills ami concentrators
to develop our vast mineral interests,
it being a fact beyond question, that
, the hidden wealth of this country
nlmunds in gold, silver, lead and
I coper, with slono coal as well, nnd
nil that is required to make this a
' rich and proserous country is to
engage the attention of that class of
; nun that have capitnl and make
! mining their avocation. And my
1 opinion is there could bo no step
taken that would bo inoro successful
in turning the attention of capital
) isU toward our uudevelood country
j lhan lo have a musing grand rally

I proposed to some of my ucighlmrs
1 th.it were fully- ns able as myself
j that I would invest Jfo.txjt) iu a wool

join me iu the enterprise. I ask,
what would have been thu probable
, result of that engagement nt this
timu? I will answer that question
by saving that I lieliove that wo
wouhf havo made no less than ton
1 K-r cent on our investment, which
, would have doubled our capital at
' this time, with a probable result
largely in favor of twenty-live ht

' of dollars to thi.i county tint has
U-en unnecessarily carried away.

und Mii'ccfMfully conducted In other
parts of the ntuto for more than thir
ty ".ears; not only that, there have
, been dtstilh-riea and lanyards for
the same length of time to my
knowledge and I can see no leason
why we should ship our raw materi
al Kast, or to any part of this state
to have il manufactured, and pay
traiisrtntiou both ways, when we
have all Iho natural fa Ii lilies for
manufacturing our own clothing,

at an average of about l." cents ht
