Railroad For Jones County.
Having seen an article proposing tne
building of a railroad for Jones county
in your paper, I wish to add'a few words
n commendation of the project.
As stated in the article Bigned Mays-
ville, there can be no doubt as to its
p-)Fsibility The good to' the county
following such an enterprise would be
incalculable. The actual good td our
county seat would be worth any effort.
the people of the county could make.
make. You know that-some people will
throw up their hands in abject horror
tnd despair when you say taxes. They
In not stop to reason out' the invest
ment, they revef think to analyze the
question to Fee if that investment does
not pay them hundreds of percent, div
Let's suppose that the people of the
county voted $30,000 interest bearing
bonds as an investment to have the
road built, would that not be a most
profitable, investment when we think of
the great development it would bring
to our county f Should the couhtyote
the bend issue, there would not be any
Interest to pay on the bonds until they
were taken by rome company who would
construct the road. ' '
After the road is built and equipped
it looks to be almost a certainty, that
one of the roads crossing the county
north and south would be sure to' ac
quire possession of the property as a
fe der. Let's say Ihe A. C. L. would
ouy them. The county would receive in
taxes all the interest paid on bonds with
a surplus of something like a thousand
dollais. From a financial standpoint,
would this not be a good investment T
Tl.ii view, would be all right for the
county, helping her schools, her old sol
diers, building better bridges and high
ways etc. But how about ber individual
ciliztnthip? It wculd increase his pri
ces by bringing a demand to his door,
making commercial every thing he can
produce, or is produced by nature, ma
king hia land, limber,' woods and every
thing possessed, marketable at advan
ced prices. This is no hot air blast but
actual facts as you can find by compar
ing values in Jones county with those
of the middle counties where railroad
advantages are constantly enlarging.
Lands here can be bought for $10.00 to
$20.00 In those counties, 140.00 to $60.00
where the difference ? We can raise,
successfully, every crop they raise. We
have more labor? It must be in trans
portation facilities, and then, a certain
amount of aectional pride, should enter
into this proposition, save one, as we
remember, this Is the only is the only
county m the east whose eoonty seat is
not connected with (fieouUide world by
ftilrdad. . . '
We say build the road connecting the
D. & 8, B. at Phillip's Crossing with
A. C. L. at f'ollocksville, where water
depth is sufficient for any boats that
ply into New Bern.
Could we secure the construction of
khis 17 mile llne'irom the D. & S. B. to
Poltocksville, we might expect, with no
little" amount of assurance, to see the
line continued , to Kinston and then a
connecting line from Swansboro to
Maysville. Old man, as we are, we ex
pect to Vide by rail from p(mifort via
PfiiTllp's Croaiing to TrentonVwrt and
then by the way of Olivers to Pollocks
villa, changing ears for Maysville, and
from there over the JUaysville and

attracting almost national attention.
the New 'Bern Collegiate Institute,
This school was started in a small way,
eight years ago by Rev. A. L. E. Weeks
and it has. been constantly growing ev
er since, uitil today, as before stated,
it' is attracting wide attention. Tne
school is situated in the centre of the
black belt of North Carolina and ia In
easy reach of three hundred thousand
negro population. It has been, already
of untold benefit to hundreds of that
race and will continue to be a blessing
to thousands of others. The institution
today owns considerably over $50,000
worth of property, a large two story
building used for class rooms, and
handsome brick edifice which contains
the chspel and officials' quarters. So
far the object of the school has been to
give its pjpils . intellectual and moral
trainining and a few of tha Useful
trades have been taught,- but lately
large farm baa been acquired, and ag
riculture and stock raising will be also
ameng the studiea. The farm includes
the property locally known as the Yea-
man place and the Iron Monger farm.
This land is fertile end ia good condi
tion for cultivation, and ia being well
stocked. An experienced manager,
graduate of tha famous Tuskegee In
stitute, has been employed to conduct
the farming operations and stock rata
ing, ani students will get the full ben

clay is found on the land, and' a brick
factoryr-now being built will soon be in
operation. Student will be employed
to do the work. The profits from this
brick making, tbe farm, HvV stock and
poultry will eventually furnish a con
siderable revenue for the institution,
but st this time what it needs mostly is
money to develop its property and op-
erateit. Some of Jew Bern's leading

because of the statement made by
Speaker-Elect Champ Clark in House
that he had no doubt that the time
would soon come when England would
gladly look forward to the turning over
of her possessions in North America to

press ia exhibiting the nearest approach

displayed, and even the papers 'friendly
to reciprecitjuire censuring Clark for his

of measure, despite bis utterance.";
