this magnificent domain was created
the great State of Tennessee. "Divisions
were followed by subdivisions in ac
cordance with the demands of a" pro
gressive age and a country rapidly peo
pling with a sturdy race oi men, until
now Rowan, shorn of , its vait areage,
has become essentially upon a par with
her sister counties of the State. aEven
yet it is of goodly proportion, being
about 40 hy 25 mile3, takinghe great
est measurement. . ' r 1;
Rowan is one of the most inviting in
the State of NortlVCarolina. I Here the
climatic and thermometry advantages
are such'as maybe pronounced most de
sirable. Within its confines are moun
tains and valleys and rivers and forests.
There are fertile fields which yield abun
dant harvest and there are rich mines
which give up their treasures of gold
and silver, of copper and galena. Here
are vast deposits of granite, second to
none in the South in its availibility for
huilding and other purposes, and here
also, are energetic1 msn who! are dkpos
ed to avail themselvei of these natura
advantages and to develop them.
THE MOUNTAIN REGION
of Rowan comprises o large part of the
southern portion of the county. "Row
an Granite Ranse" traverses in a horth-
easterly and south-westerly direction
that portion of the county lying be
tween the Richmond & Danville and
the-propoied lin2 of the Salisbury and

THE PRODUCTS OP THE COUNTY
are many and various. In Rowan is
grown cotton of especially good quality,.
; and the acreage devoted tothis plant
yearly increases until a tair estimate oi
a full" crop throughout the county
wo aid be from 7,000 to 8,000 bales.
Perhaps, after all, that is an extreme
estimate, but our cotton buyers here in
form us that they place the yield this
year at about four thousand"bales, and
they also say that not much it any more
than half a crop has been made, takiiig
the entire county.
Tobacco is also an important product
and is rapidly pushing its -wayto the
front in aggregate value arid acreage"
devoted to the plant. Here is grown a
very superior quality. of the leaf, and
those, of pur farmers who demote neces
sary care and labor to their tobacco
news ana tnen purine ieai m gooa con?
dition before marketing it, receive sub
stantial pecuniary returns.
Cereals find a congenial , home here.
Corn and wheat especially thrive, and
we question if another county7 in the
State has a greater number of flouring
mills upon j its "water courses. The
streams which we have already alluded
to (as well as others of minor impor
tance) afford almost unlimited power
power that could be utilized at compar
atively small expense but which now
runs to wa."?te.
THE TIMBER "RESOURCES
ol: the county are of great proportions,
but they have been developed but little
a yei. There is an abundance of oak
of pine, of hickory, and other woods
which ought to prove a source of reve
nue; but which, through inexplicable
negligence or oversight, is wasted.
From withinrthe limits of Rowan coun
ty can be secure material suitable for a
wide diversity of manuf actures, the fin
ished product of which would again, in
great part, find a ready home market,
but a decent regard for the truth com
pels us to saymat opportunities are be-
ing wasted and material destroyed.
THE MINERAL RESOURCES
of Rowan have been and ever will be of
great importance. No more engaging
theme of conversation can be started
among: the people of half : the county
than this, nor do . we wonder at it.

doubtless the mean average would fair

not more than 812 ; it may also be said
that these ores are excellent as regards

ores are very refractory.
TIIEUE IS A STAGNATION
in the mining interests of the county
now, it is true, and it is equally true
that many valuable mines have hereto
fore been worked at a Joss because of
two tilings: 1st. the refractory nature
of the ores, and 2J, incompetency, in
The owners of developed property,
however, are satisfied as to their intrin
sic value, and are only awaiting one of
three things: The discovery of some rer
liable process that shall extract the gold
without absorbing the yield; the erec
tion of smelting ami reduction works,
or cheap transportation of the ore to
other points where commercial and sys
tematic processes obtain, coupled with
reasonable rated from Northern or for
eign smelters. We leave it to metal-
lnrgists to cleteimine whether or not
some entirely new-procesTis practicahle
it seems to us that herein lies ii field
jor practical ehvestigation and experi
ment that is almost boundless. The
question of transportation and rates for
smelting rancl reduction is to be deter
mined bv those luost interested. The
matter of establishing smelting and re
duction works here in Salisbury is a
feasible one, and such works can be
built within the next twelve months if
organized, sytematic action is, pursued.
As rcgr.rds shipping' ores tvc may add
that a moverarnt is now pn fpot looking
toward co-operation on the part 6f own

ores if satisfactory arrangements could

The trne solution of the whole mat-
ftorvif seems to us, is to
BUILD SMELTING AND REDUCTION WORKS
here. These could be built and ecpiip
ped at t(cost of from 100,000 "to $.150,
000, and there is far more than enough
ore now in sight to run such works
night and day for a year. With such
works in operation not only would al
ready developed or partially developed
mines be worked to the utmost, but at
least fifty new mines would be opened
simultaneously with their erection.
With smelting and reduction works in
operation in Salisbury, the gold yield
from the ores would be but one item of
profit. There would be the valuable bi
produets, such as sulphuric acid, copper
or blue stone, silver and lead, and from
the roasted sulphur would be derived
the basis of a valuable and durable min
It seern to us quite useless to expect
foreign capital to do that which our
own people kliould do. Foreign capital
has found gold mining in Kowan coun

slow to place more nioney in mining
schemes here unless owners of mining

pledge such an earnest of good faith
on the part of our own people, backed
up by the inefragible evidence of the
richness ot the "old mines as evidenced
by, the ores themselves, it would be with
a reasonable degree of assurance and a
reasonable prospect ot success that cap-
itaiists ana practical men elsewhere
might be approached wtfh the view of
inducing them to embark in what un
questionably would prove a highly re
munerative enterprise. It is very true
that he gods help those who" help

"much about ' the town to impress the
granger iayorably, and a longer or
shorter stay is usuallv a source of treas
ure, for the haspitality and kindheart
nes3 of the people are beyond question.
The plat of the town (except m some
of the more recent additions) is verv
regular, the streets crossing each other
at right angles. For the most part, too,
these streets are broad, and lined upon
either side with shade trees. Evidences
-i. , n ... ,
of,cultur refinement competency if
not wealth are found in numberless co
sy and a few really pretentious homes,
and a drive or stroll about town discloses
a great many attractive places. There
are evidences of improvement to be
seen on every hand, too though the tide
of new building has latterly set in the
direction of what is still known as the
"garrison lot where the prison was
during war times. Mr. R. J. Homes
is especially doing very much to render
mis part oi town desirable.
THE BUSINESS QUARTER
of Salisbury , extends up and down
Main street for about three full blocks,
upon either side of which are the busi

three storries in flight. Upon Fisher

number of other business houses None
of these blocks are especially notewor

THE PUBLIC BUILDINGS
of Salisbury, or, rather, the county
buildings, are substantial structures,

and will doubtless continue to do so for
many years to come.
The churches are quite creditable, the
new Lutheran church being the hand
somest-- in tact it would reflect credit
upon anv city in the State. The Pres

churches are as follows: Methodist

are taking more interest ' in educa

room for improvement in the system as
applied, but it can fairly be said that
thoroughness as well as comprehensive
ness of instruction is aimed at and se
cured. Misses Caldwell and Jordan conduct
an excellent select school in the Presby

of Miss Alice Pearson, whose school is

road undoubtedly cut off much of :the
.trade that long ajo used to centre here,
but for all our merchants eontinue to
hold a large volume of buisness, as will
be seen from the sketches here made. of
various industries. The great thing
now lacking is manufactures. The
foundery and machine shop and plain

in operation, and it offers a rand op
portunity to the right man. As it is,
there is a beggarly array of manufact
ures in Salisbury. There are two to
bacco manufactories, each of which will
resume operations in the spring ; there
are the Railroad Shops, a . cotton gin;
two small tanneries, the machine shop
of .Mr. Frerck, J. D. & B. Small's plain

one or two small carriage shops. Sure

to be some factories that would utilize
