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! ' : rfi-
