FRIDAY, Augi ST 0, 1901. LET US PULL TOGETHER. \ century after the town of Srpithfield was incorporated but little progress hud been made. The sleepy old town on the banks of ttu- Neuse was but little larger than it was in 1800. Its people bad ever been slow and conserva tive. content with their lot, each for himself, never looking to, or caring for, t h?-flit are, when a large nuB prosperous town might take th# place of the sleepy village of the past. A few years ago things changed ai^d the town took on new life. T&p? in a short while this progress w&? checked, through fires and ot;))arcauses, and the town lapsed into its old-time lethargy. About the close of 185)7 and the begtnning of 1898 a new revival of the material and commercial interests of the town broke out, a new spirit controlled its citizens and a strong and healthful grow th has been maintained ever siflpe. This new spirit of enterprise aijtl energy was lirst s?s?n in the young men who organized the Kflftithfield Tobacco Warehouse Company. This was followed by the organization of another warehouse company, the organi >n and e ?' ub'ishmenfc of the Bank of Smithfield.the Brooklyn Manufacturing Company, the third warehouse, and later The Smithfield Cotton Mill. And just ; Hi the cotton mill was nearing completion some of our enter-1 prising citizens organized the1 Smithfield Improvement Coin pgmy. Tbi s company is now build-1 itlg a largely nd commodious three sttorv brick hotel which will bean oBraunent to the town. The establishment of a tobacco market here has done much for the town and we feel justified in stating that no market in North Carolina has held up and main tained higher prices than have otrr tobacconists. They deserve praise and should receive the encouragement of our citizens for their untiring efforts to build up a lively and strong market fibre. While the town is growing and its enterprises thriving is the best time to lay the solid foundation fflfv future success and prosperity. How can tnis be done? is the question that confronts our citi zens to-dav. This question has fjj{fc>n partially answered in the 1.1st few weeks, by the organiza tion of The Smithfleld Chamber of Commerce. This organization is designed to further the com mercial and manufacturing inter estsof the to .vn, to unite the busi ness men of th town into a solid body to w or . for the general im provement of our thriving little 1 city along all lines. One of the ( truest of adages is "United we sbrtrid, divided we fall." J/et us , bear this in mind and let every 1 businessman of the town unite with the ( hamber of Commerce and work lor the town's upbuild ing. forgetting self for the time being. The Chamber of Commerce, or ganized less than 30 days ago, has already been productive of good to our commercial interests, and yet onlv a few of our busi- ' uess men en active in its i \ 1 organization. Much more can l>e accomplished by united effort. So let ewer/ man who has the welfare of Suiithfield at heart go out to the court house to-night and become an active member of the Chamber of Commerce. Some of the Cubans are anxi ous that (ieneral Maximo Gomez should lie first President of the Republic. General Gomez, who has done so much for Cuba, is content for others to hold the ollices. He positively declines and recommends that Estrado l'alma be made President. CLAYTON NOTES.
