from a little pamphlet on Philadel

Philadelphia, covers an area of 12!)
sq. Ml.; contains over 250,000 build
ings, which is about double the
Dumber in New York; has over
190,000 dwellings, which exceeds
the number of those in New York

new buildings. In this, city 120,-

One of the interesting places to
visit is the Lastern Penitenti try, oc
cupying 11 acres of ground. It is
one of the most celebrated prisons of
its class, and was spoken of by
Charles Dickens, in his "American
Notes." Another institution situ
aled close to the penitentiary is tin

OUR RALEIGH LETTER.
Governor Glenn and Board of
Agriculture Making Efforts
to Secure Immigrants. Gov
ernment Cotton Reports and
the Farmers Etc.
Goiinaii News Bureau,
Raleigh. .N C, Dec 11.
In his efforts to induce desirable
immigrants to this State Governor
Glenn u nil the State Board of Agri
culture have arrived ,'.t a point of
dilteience as to the modus operandi
to be employed. The board held its
annual meeting in this city the last
tour days ot tho past week, adjourn
ing Saturday. The governor at-
t"iitled one of the sessions of the
board and made uu earnest appeal
lor provision, financial and other
wise, to be mads for the sending of
ex In in ts ot the resources and
products of North Carolina to a
number of the rail's to be held nexi
fall in the New Knglund States.
lie is impressed with the conviction
that, immigrants from that section
can be induced to come to this state,
composed largely of people who
would purchase farms for themselves
after locating here and that they
would be among the must desirable
class that could possibly be secured.
The action taken by the board,
however, especially in the matter of
making financial provision for such
a plan, would si-cui it indicate, that
the boaid is not in full accord wit,.
the governor. It was stated that it.
would require about live to seven
thousand dolla's to carry out the
idea of the governor, But the board
appropriated only three or four hun
dred dollars for the purpose of se
curing certain exhibits "which can
be placed in ibe .State museum if
'the idea of sending an exhibit to
the ew Jiiigland lairs it not de-m
ed feasible at the meeting of th
board next June." Some of th.
members of the board opposed this
plan to send exhibits to other s'ates
as long as we have so many excel
lent .exhibits to lie seen at the lairs
held in our own state. There are
those who think that the board
is making a mistake in taking
that pool i inn and who hope that H
will yet see its wav clear to adopt
the govnors recommendations in
The fact that cotton took a
tuinbli of over twenty points last
Saturday, following the latest "gin
ners' report" issued by the Govern
ment rensus bureau, afier the jump
of live dollars per bale tome ten
days ago, caused by tue preceding
bulletin 01 tn- uurea", has caused
some thinking people to express the
opinion that it would be better for
all concerned if the bulletin!! based
on the returns us now sent in by
the ginners, or rather a portion of
them, were abolished altogether.
lliey say that it is well known that
many of the ginners sending in
reports that are furnished do not
tale the 1 1 n til. I hat under such
conditions it is of couisu impossible
for these bulletins to set tortli the
true, and exaol conditions. The bill
which Congressman Webb of this
state has prepared, authorizing and
requiring bulletins to be issued mole
frequently, would in a measure pre
vent such sudden and serious llnctua
lions, but in the opinion of some Mi
Webb would be doing his state mid
people a better service if he woulu
