measuring three feet three inches in
breadth and two feet three inches in

"Our Great Need.
Editor Review: In your issue ol
the 5th msL. an article headed "Out
Great Need Industrial Enterprises"
&c, &c, brings to my mind what I
attempted to do four years ago. It was
this: For 50 or a 100 or more tax
payers to join together in a paper writ
ing and state, to the. public that an
agreement is entered into which should
bo legally binding and agreeing to pay
over two and a half per cent upon all
of their assessed taxable property in
the City of Wilmington to any live
manufacturing company or .corpora
tion that should invest $100,000
permanently. If it shouid amount
to $1,000,000, two and a half per cent,
would amount to $25,000. Would not
Ithat have a tendency to call attention
to those em harking in me manuiactur
ing interests to bring them to Wilming
ton, and would we not be benefited
many - fold over and above what we
would give as a bonus to secure vari
ouslmanufactures in our town, and
would it not have a sure result of in
creasing the present rapid prosperity of
our city? F. W, F.
As will be seen the above is in re
sponse to an article which appeared in
our local columns on the 5th inst., in
the subject indicated, and the ideas of
our correspondent are well worthy of
consideration. Capital is boutid to seek
the most promising and most inviting
localities for investment. It will no
leave home nnless it sees more than a
possible'chance of being benefited by the
change. There is nothiDgmore cautious
and timid, as a general rule, than
capital.; It has been generally secured
through patieut toil, little by little, and
those who a"e its possessors are not
prone to risk it in any doubtful or
hazardous enterprise. Capital is one of
the great needs of Wilmington to put it
securely on the road to success and every
legitimate means snouia De usea to se
cure such an increase of capital from
tae ouisioe worm as win make our
prosperity assured and permanent The
plan proposed, by ouc correspondent is
a good one, and it can be carried " into
execution -with but little risk to those
immediately concerned and it . would.1
undoubtedly have the effect of bringing
capital from abroad to help, swell :oar

contract to build and equip 15 miles of
Hie v omt Oasweil Railroad, beginning
at Point Caswell. He is uradinc half a

luc work to completion, lie informed
us that there is on toot a proposition to
have the charter of the- road extended
from Clinton to Raleifih There would
be no trouble to get couyict labor to do
the grading on easy terms, and there is
no reason why the project cannot be
carried to a speedy consummation.
Such a road would be a big bonanza to
bampson and- to the exliro section
through which it would pass. It would
aiso auu greaiiy to ine commercial in
terests ot the City ot Oaks and the City
by the Sea, as well as afford quick and
easy transit from the one to, the other.
It seems to be pretty well determined
that the Wilmington extension of Cape

aireaay oeen made, and it will cross

with this extension completed the Pt.

ilities unsurpassed by those of any sec
