Editor J oubn a l : I noticed an article
in the Journal a few days ago in re
gard to the "Co-opera'.ivo luaiiufac
turing Company" of New Berne, which
received my hearty endorsemmt. V'hy
j ia it that the Company thus formed has
never made any progress ? Iwiilhere
, Btate the reason as far aa my kuowied(?e
jgoee: When tua Lorncany wa3
formed trie business men of the
were looking forward to a roo 1 fail
trade, but o-ing to the (Shortage of
crops their vnectatiooB were i-ct
realised, Laanj i our most jirorai'-u tit
merchants and business men being
losers by their previous con:r..ei-:
therefore the prime movers in the .ini-i
project did hot push the matter. You
are aware of the fact that Mr. Wm.
Lorch and myself worked hard for two
weeks canvassing the city for subscrip
tions to said Company. We received a
goodly uumber of names cf the boot
citizens to the cause above mentioned.
After we had secured the tanie. we
called a meeting, which was held at the
court house, and moat of said fub
ecribera were present. Speeches were
made by our most prominent men in
behalf of said project. I am glad to
say I did not endorse all that was eaid.
In some of the speeches some one said
let us erect a factory at a place called
the "Lakes" below New Berne.
Another said it would be had policy to
allow another party out of the city to
take more than was represented by the
stockholders of the city, as said party
would have the controlling interest and !
rule the Company. Another stated
it was impossible te run a factory of
any kind here and mahe it pay, em
ploying the labor of our city, giving E8
a reason the laborer would not make
the time, it being too trilling, leaving
their work whenever there was a picnis, ,
a circus, or excursion.
Now, Mr. Editor, I was manager of 1
the first manufacturing establishment ;
of this city and employed city labor,
and I can confidently assert I made the
hnsinHH ntv and that handsomely. I
speak of the tobacco factory of Messrs. 1
Walker, Jones & Co. I confess at hrst
I bad some trouble in employing the
proper labor, but after a little 1 suc
ceeded in getting that which I could
handle with profit.
There is one thing certain, if a bucket,
wash-board, basket or furniture factory
was started here, and received proper
management, it would pay and that
Let us have the factory. Let ui call
a meeting of the stockholders of the
Co-operative Manufacturing Company
for Monday night and get all of them
to attend not to make long speeches,
but come for business and act on tbe
matter at once. We have already suf
ficient subscriptions to start a furniture
factory that will pay a good profit. We
can increase in capacity as our demand
will be. Very small things have de
veloped into great establishments, with
careiui ana proper management.
What has become of the New Berne
firm that was going to commence a
wooden manufactory a few months
ago ? Has tbe project fallen through V
I understand a firm in Baltimore of
considerable means and ability was
anxious to take stock in said Company.
Why was it the Company formed did
not accept their offer ' Was it because
(as one of the speakers stated at the
