> North Carqolina is recognized as
> second to no other state in the union
in progressiveness. Our state is at the
top of the ladder in every respect ex
-5 cept in fair and equitable freight rat
\ es. The railroads are not to be blamed
Ik for failure to give relief. The people
7 have the necessary remedy in their
Z> own hands by a majority vote for
l> Port Terminals and Water Transpor
i tation on November 4. If carried, the
5 Port Terminal Act will authorize the
h development of water transportation
i in North Carolina, and the installation
* of proper terminal facilities to care
j for the vast business the state now
w generates. This enormous volume of
business passes through ports of other
■ states, to their material advancement
and to North Carolina’s detriment.
Our state has developed thus far
not through aid furnished by favor
able freight rates, but in spite of the
discriminatory freight rates that have
served as a grat hindrance to a more
rapid advaaicment. Development of wa
ter transportation and port terminals
by the voters in November will mean
that the greatest handicap imposed
through the years has been removed
and that the state in the future will
be permitted to expand in a manner
that will surpass the expectations of
the most optimistic.
Facts of Interest.
A report recently issued by the
census bureau indicates that the total
wealth of North Carolina increased
from $1,647,781,000 in 1912 to $4,543,-
110,000 in 1922. That this growth is
contiuuihg is shown by the statrhent
that authorized capital for North
Carolina charters in 1921 amounted
to $125,000,000; in 1922 to $126,000,-
000; and in 1923 to $213,000,000.
North Carolina ranked fifteenth
among all the states of the union in
the value of manufactured produits
in 1919, and in the South was second
I only to Texas. North Carolina stood
fourth in the United States in 1923
in the value of the 22 principal crops
I and fifth in the value of ail crops.
. It was first in the value of tobacco
raised, .and its cotton crop of 1,110,000
bales was second only to that of Tex
as. The value of crops increased from
$131,072,000 in 1909 to $431,500,000
in 1923. North Carolina has the larg
est tobacco industry, the largest alum
inum plant in the world.
A Point To Be Corrected
A fact not so pleasant is given to
the public in the statement of a New
York statistical bureau, namely, that
Virginia has approximately 60 per
cent more wholesale and jobbing hous
} es than North Carolina and North
> Carolina approximately 60 per cent
f more retail establishments than Vir
> ginia. This simply means that the fav
> orable freight rates enjoyed by Vir
* ginia .based on the Erie canal (water
» way transportation, by the way), en
» ables that state to grow rich at the
l expense of North Carolina retailers,
» who sell to our individual custocers.
I The latter “pay the freight”, making
Virginia iities richer and themselves
I State Pride.
£ Every North Carolinian is proud of
[ his state. He should consider it a

c ment proposals wial break the chains

? The Remedy

Fortunately there is a wide range

oils are so penetrating that they
