KNOW NORTH CAROLINA
A Georgia Verdict
, The road system in -North Caro
linn;is only one evidence" of North
Carolina's general prosperity that
appeals to the people .of other
states, and particularly, ". to tho
people of Georgia, whose natural
conditions of living are practically j
the same. ' y '
North Carolina's public school
syst'in is niainlained rnore-1,rogrcs-sively
than is that of Georgia,
through no fault of Georgia's most
excellent department, of education.
The higher educational, insi.it.u-.
tions of North ,' Carolina ,are ade
quaicly maintained, whiI,i.thosc in
Georgia ar admittedly, istarveri. ,
Tlyj state contributes more . to tho
university system in thai' state in
one year than Georgia does in four.
' The same can be said of tho .
Other institutions tho olccmosy
nary, tho corrective, tho penal,
-Why is all this?... . ' ;
North Carolina has relatively a
quarter of a million less population
than Georgia, ; , . v
All of the five largest cities corn- ,
bined will scarcely exceed iii" popu
lation Uie one city of Atlant.-- ' ; '
Wilmington, ' the scal)oird me
fropolis, is a much smaller city tliaY
Charlotte, the largest trading
center, if not as large as M41W11. .'
Neither WinstDii-Salem nor Dur
ham' nor Greensboro, ,hcr great v
tobacco manufacturing .cities, is as'
And yet it is a state of small
cities and towns, eah ' filled with
the stacks of industry, and. each
the center of prosperous rural com
munities." t . ,
' The reason for it all is-not lhat
North Carolina has any better peo
ple than Georgia, for there are no
better; not that North Carolina
has any rpore natural advantages
tlian Georgia, for , m these, ,bothr ,
states are practically blessed alike .
-but that North Carolina has,
revise'd her old and antiquated tax
system sp that tnV state is pro
vided with funds sufficient tocarry
oh the functions of government in
keepiiig with the lemands, .of a
progressive age ; . ' ;, ' , ,; ' . "
