A movement is now assuming shape
however to establish such a company in
this State with headquarters at Raleigh.
The Raleigh Visitor has (ompihd a line
list of industries, enterprises and improve

city during tho last ten years. Among
the number is the South Atlantic Life and
Endowment Insurance Co., of which two

The incorporators and their addresses
are: George Allen, B. S. Jarman, W. E.
Ashley. Wir. S Piimroseand J. N. Hold

Watts and L D. Heartt. Durham; W. L.

Berne, their associates and assigns.
The capital sti ck is lo be 6100.000,
devided into shares of $100 each and the
charter which was granted by the last
legislature permits the organization of the
company when one half of the capitil
stock has lei-n subscribed. The chatter
ulso authorises the stock to be incri a-d
The company is to begotlm up by sul)
senptions, anel Ihe subscribers upon or
ganizing will elect directors and the
tlirectois elect a president and other
officers for the management of the corpora
lion. Subscriptions to stock are I o be paid
iu'monthly installments. A paymei.l ol
$6. 50 per mom h for a hundred monlhs
amounting to $050 pays for SI, IK it) worth
of slock. Other amoun's of stock arc, of
course, in the same proportion.
The statement is made that insurance
has now leconie the largest business in
the world, and bolli stocldiolelers and
managers, as a rule derive liberal profits
from it, and it is also said lhat the business
is attended with less risk lo the stock
holders than is usual in other enterprises.
These thi igs beii g so, it looks as if there
ought to be a good opening for a North
Carolina company and l lie movement has
our best wishes. To retain and iuvesit in
North Carolina a good proportion ol the
two mil ion dollars that annually haves it
in paymeht for life insurance will be a
decided benet, and no doubt conduce
largely lo the more rapid development
both industrially mill commercially.
The projectors of the company an
nounce their inientiou ot furnishing poli
cies lhat will be the ((pial of any in the
land for safety and equity and that eve ry
effort will l made to incorporate every
known advantage, while exercising at the
same time vigilant care to adopt only sate
and conservative methods,

rather against, a few days ago, which law
passed by the lusion party gae to the
towns the right to vote to hav : the roads
kept up by taxation and excusing, very
magnanimously, the town from sharing in
the taxation therefor; in oilier words,
giving the town people the sptcial priv
ilege of "repre-seulatiou without taxa
tion." In this matter they had very truly
given the touu people "a stick wilh
which to break their backs.'' But how
have the people of New Berne acted in
the matte; y 'Ihey certainly knew that the
roads vvou Id be kept in betie-r condition
by taxatii tl than by the present method
of working them anel they furthermore
knew that the l etter the roads leading

have good roads all oyer the eoduty aud
the city of New Berne would not h ive to

never so kind.

interest, l ad she been fellish in the mat

facts? Feeling that it was unjust to the
