Mr. John. S. Henderson is in the city.
In conversation with him a reporter
learned that last Saturday Col. B. S.
Pardee addressed the people of Salisbury
on the question of immigration, in com
pliance with a request to do so signed by
Mayor J. A. Ramsay and Messrs. G. A.
Bingham, S. H. Wiley, J. J. Stewart and
J. S. Henderson. He spoke ably and his
remarks were well received. The mayor
presided at the nieeing, Mr. T. K. B tuner
being secretary. The following resolu
tions, offered by Mr. S. II. Wiley, were
"Whereas, Rowan county has within
its borders large areas of the best unim
proved agricultural land in this State,
besides precious ores aud other minerals
of commercial value, as well as large and
valuable tracts of woodland ; aud.
"Whereas, The people of Rowan coun
ty, have long desired a flow of skilled
labor and capital into their midst that
agriculture, manufactures and trade
might add to their prosperity, therefore,
"Resolved, That in view of the con
siderations presented to ns by Coleuel
Pardee as the effect the State exposition,
to be held at Raleigh, will have upon
Northern immigration, this meeting does
hereby express its hearty approval of
"Resolved, That the commissioners of
Rowan are hereby requested and express
ly urged to appropriate $500, to enable
Rowan to be suitably represented at the
said exposition, and to take such other
action as may be necessary to seenre a
suitable display of the resources of this
county." Raleigh News & Observer.
Frem the above, our readers may
learn that there is still a chance for Row
an to have a showing at Raleigh this
fall. It would be gratifying if such
should be the case. Rowan took the
lead of the counties at Boston and made
a good impression which should be fol
lowed up with a real good, attractive dis
play at Raleigh, from which place it will
be sent right ou to New Orleaus, where it
will find a place iu the great world's
fair. It is hoped that the Commission
ers, if they do not care to act alone, will
at once call the magistrates together,
and make an appropriation of suificieut
amount to insure a good represeutatiou
of this coonty's resources.
