Charlotte.—That the c&raing year
i 914, will be the best in the history
I of the city, in all lines and with all
interests, la he sum-totalof estimates
on the part, of a score of business
men, merchant*, manufacturers, job
bers, bulldera and others recently in
! In building operations, 1914 prom
| ises to be a record breaker, for al
| ready morethan a million and a half
' dollars worth of work is under way
j and that too In strictly commercial
| lines, without any esumate as to the
J vast volume of residential and su
| burban construction, which doubtless
will swell the grand total to at least
j This, according to those best post
;ed on the situation and those who
; make It a business to keep close in
j touch with all affalrn or this charac
ter, is the greatest outlay that Char
lotte has ever known and one that
will 'doubtless stand as the high water
mark for several years to come.
If the amount of building con
•traction is any estimate of the year's
activity, then Charlotte should make
greater strides in 1914 than in any
j previous year in its history. Of
j course this does not Include what la
*in contemplation, but only that for
which estimates have been submitted
and in many instances for which con
tracts have actually been given.
There are many big Jobs that have
not yet been announced, but which
will be made known with the open
ing up of the spring season, when
building activity will be greatly aug
A little resume of what Is actually
in view now may be of interest and
the figures are herewith reproduced:
Queen's College, six buildings, $160,-
000; Horner Military Institute, three
buildings, $75,000; Masonic Temple,
$80,000; Morehead Apartments, SIOO,-
000; Hutchison building for J. B. Ivey
Co., $90,0000; Latta Development,
$75,000; Duls Apartment, $50,000;
East Trade construction,' $100,000;
Carr Apartments, $50,000; Norfolk-
Southern terminals, |fl0,000; S. A. L.
Improvements, $25,000; Standard Oil
Company, $35,000; North Tryon con
struction, $50,000; West Trade con
struction, $50,000; Mercantile Devel
opment Co., 12 stores, $300,000.
There is no estimate included for
the new postofflce building to be
erected by the government for the
reason that no agreement has been
reached as to the plans but this
should doubtless be included In the
year's summary for the reason that
operations will doubtless be started
during the year.
Craig Says Btste la Prosperous.
Ilalelgh.—Speaking of the passing
of the old year and the coming of the
new, Governor Craig eaid that the
achievements in freight rate adjust
ment, progress in the construction of
good highways and the further awak
ening of interest in the value of really
rqpds and general advancement
in rural life conditions and improved
methods of farming are shining fea
tures of the advance made in this
state during the past year. He be
lleves, too, that the progress of the
past year Is but the beginning of a
great advance that will gain wonder
fully in volume during the year o
which the state Is Just entering so
The advent of 1914 finds North Car
olina with 413 state banks, with a
combined capital of SH/'IB,OOO coni .
pared with 375 banks last year with
$9,984,000 capital, a gain of 40 per
cent. The banking resources now
$83,500,000 last year.
Bpeno«r Gells $46,000 Bonds.
Spencer^—The town of Spencer has
cldfeed a deal for sale of $45,000 boftds.
This amount has been placed to the
credit of the town in the Bink of
Spencer. Mayor C. G. Thelling, who
has given much attention to the sale
of the bonds, states that approximate
ly $30,000 of the money will be used
in securing a water plant for the
town, and that SIO,OOO will be used In
enlarging the school building.
The town has been badly in need
ef more water for two years and also
needs a larger school building.

Sixty-fourth Congress returned re
