Main and "Water streets.- - ' GOMMBNT- the chui-ch or some needy person in town, do you write to the "Fair" store in Chicago or io your home merchant? How much does Siegel, Cooper Co., give toward keep ing, up the sidewalks of the town or paying the minister's salary? "When your loved one was buried, was it Marshall, Field, & Co., who sympathized with you and spoke the cheering word or was it your home paper?" -' It ia time now that we should be getting our city ready for the visitors to the Roanoke celebra tion. We need very en tensive street repairs such ' as new walk, new pavements, new curbing, etc., especially on parts of Main and Fearing streets. In many places the sidewalks nave settled so that during rainy weather, water stands in pools on the walks. In others the curbs have fallen away leav ing i the. paving bricks loose and falling out along the edges. Our streets should be given a thorough in good condition. The old sheds on Poindexter street should come down and saydon't forget the Poindexter ' street bridge. We. as a city are too progressive to allow these conditions to exist -What is the ' reason Eliz. City cannot support a T. M. C. A.? Many towns of not nearly the size and prosperity of Elizabeth City have T. M. C. A. rooms, well fitted with li- fary, gymnasium and bathrooms, and are a great benefit to the cities. A comfortable reading room stock ed with standard works and hav ing on the tables all the best peri odicals would be a great - educa tional help to the young men of this city, and sure be appreciated. A -properly outfitted gymnasium would not overtax-the town and the expense of keepiasf game in order would be very slight, while the, results need no discussion. It seems that enough members could be enrolled in a city of our size at f 5 per year, to make the organiza tion self supporting. Y Elizabeth City is making an eff ort to have the port 6f entry for the collection district of Albemarle removed from Edenton. J. M Meekins, representing the. Eliza beth City Chamber of Commerce is in Washington to present the mat ter. He was with Senator Pritch- ard, who introduced a hill for the removal of the port - from Edenton to Elizabeth City. George W.' Cobb, collector of the port, is also there. He was reappointed a short, while ago :. The above clipping we take from the Raleigh Post. With such men making an effort to se cure the custom house to Elizabeth City, we heed have no fear but -that we shall get it!
