The Twentieth Ceatary SUte
Edition of the Raleigh News and
Observer ii before us, and its mam
moth aize if astonishing, containing
223 six-column pages filled with the
most interesting reading pertaining
to the industries and natural advan-
tages offered by our State from the
mountains to the sea. and is a last
ing monument to the brain and en
terprise of those who engineered it
through to such perfect success.
That it is printed for the benefit
and upbuilding of the South, in
general, and North Carolina in par
ticular, first, last and all the time,
is shown from the following editorial
taken from its pages:
"Horace Greeljr discovered the
West and turned the tide of immi
gration to the rolling prairies when
be awoke the youth of New England
to the opportunities of the rich vir
gin soil of the fertile sections beyond
the Mississippi by hie admonition :
'Young Man, Go West.' Together
with the sons of New England, the
thousands of thrifty immigrants
from Europe driven from the homes
of their fathers by the crushing tyr
rany and oppression of militarism
pitched their tents toward the land
of the sunset.
"Go South, Young Man,'" is
now the admonition of such men as
Chauncey M. Depew, who have en
joyed opportunities of finding out
the advantages which the various
sections of the Republic oiler to this
generation. When the tide ' of im
migration poured into the West, the
South had the same advantages of
climate and soil which it yet holds,
but slavery repelled the European
immigrant as well as the descendaat
of the Puritan, and though we had
the superior location, the environ
ment of slavery repelled young men
looking for new homes.
"Conditions have changed. "Go
South, Young Man," is the advice
that men are heeding every day.
The eyes of the world are turned to
the South. Capital, skill and labor
find m the Southern States the op
portunity they seek. Northern
money, in conjunction with South
ern capital, is seeking investment in
the South. Money invested in
Southern property has yielded larger
returns than elsewhere. Skilled
mechanics find here an open door to
independence and fair remuneration.
Labor finds employment at good
wages twelve months in every year.
The industries of the South invite
these classes to make their homes
South of the Potomac Farmers
looking for homes are coming South
bodauee they can make more money
. rifling the soil than in any other
portion of the world because the soil
is rich and the climate permits work
all the year.
t "North Carolina ii the favored
, State of the South. Toward all sec
tions of the State capital and immi
gration are Sowing, aid Northern
capital and skill Are coming to labor,
together with home money and
brawn, to develop the State's resour
ces and share in the wealth that will
follow in its development."
