March 10 For the last few days our

Booth, convened last Saturday, 8th, lost.
Rev R. B. John, P. E., was on hand and

interesting, especially on Sunday at 11
a. as. We thought the Sunday discourse
was the best missionary sermon we ever
heard. There wu a large turn-out of
people from adjoining counties. The
Elder left Bunday evenlngl.for the rail
road to return to his home in W liming

: We see no good reason why the coun
ty, A. & N. C. R. R. and the people of
Dover can't get together and build a
road from here to Trent road in Jones
county, a distance of four and a half
miles. -It would open up one of the
finest farming sections In Eastern North
Carolina and turn a volume of business
Into Craven county that is now being
done out of it. A good road opened
through to this section would be the
means of establishing here tobacco ware
houses, a large cotton market besides
other Industries that' would naturally
follow. Well, you say let Dover build
the road and that is exactly what we
would have done long before this if we
had been able.
Our people are poor but are Indus
trious and public spirited. ' And besides
all of this suppose this road would be
the means of doubling the population
and wealth, of Dover, which we think it
would do within two years after Its com
pletion, wouldn't Craven county and the
A. & N. O. R. R. be equally benefitted.
Our interests are mutual and this road
would be as equally beneficial to one as
to the other. Craven county or the A.
&N.C. R.R. could either build this
road and be amply repaid in a very
short time. But we don't ask this, we
are only crying for help. Shall we get
