WORLD'S LRADLNO TOBACCO

Following are extracts from an ad
dress delivered by Col. A. U. Watts,
Collector of Internal Rsvsnuc for tho
Fifth District of North Carolina, at
a smoker given by Tbs Twin City
Club, Winston-Salem, February 4th,
“Winston-Salem la supplying one
fourth of all the chewing and smok
ing tobacco consumed In tha United
States, besides exporting vast quanti
ties to foreign lands. This statement
is taken from tke report of the Coen
miaeioner of Internal Revenue for tke
first quarter of the present fiscal year
and frum private advices from Wash
ington, as to the second quarto.,
which ended December 31st, last.
"Your city is making oec scventh
of all tobacco products—chewing and
smoking tobacco, cigars, cigarettes
nnd snuff—manufactured In the Unit
ed States. Your manufacturers are
paying on an average about 137,000
a day revenue taxes to the govern
ment and the amount is increasing
from month to mofit^L When your
government building, much the hand
somest la the State, was aomplatad
last July at a coat of 9260,000 your
newspapers made the statement that
the taxes paid In your rity to Uncle
Sam far tha first eight days of its oc
cupancy would pay for it. Sine* Sep
tember, it baa taken only a fraction
over seven average days collections
here to equal Its cost. So far n»t«
week, llr. Cranford has taken in
930MU-M. I predict that before
1016 shall have ended jroar average
weekly payments to the government
on tobacco will more than pay for
this magnificent building, leaving tha
collections for the ether fifty-on*
weeks aa dear profit to tha govern
' “Wins Um-Salem is shipping on an
averaga each week day to nil parts
of this country sad to foreign lands
•t least 1160XXX) of tobacco products.
"la conclusion, Winston-Salem
manufactures more tobacco, all to
bacco products are taken into this
statement, than any other dty oo
earth, little or big. Industrially, ska
la easily first la North Carolina, pop
alette* considered, first la America
and I bailees, in tba world; socially, a
never failing delight to her friends."
