Factories Must be Built
tor Greenville
Manufacturers are Invited
to Investigate the Advantages Offered
in a score of progressive and rapidly-growing towns along the lines of the
The plants now located here are making money, but there's room and
raw material for more. Let us tell you about our advantages.
H F. L. Land and Industrial Agent, Norfolk Ry., Norfolk, Va.
A tobacco factory is needed, and if it cannot
he had Greenville should at least be able to
secure the location of one of the proposed
Tobacco Storage Warehouses. The
town's importance as a tobacco center is too
great and the necessity for permanently hold-
its tobacco trade too vital a matter for
Greenville to longer overlook the necessity for
guaranteeing its permanency. This can best
be done, as has been demonstrated in the his-
of other tobacco towns, such as Durham,
and Danville, by the establish
of tobacco-manufacturing plants.
The principle further applied that the place
to locate a manufacturing enterprise is where
raw material can be had at small cost suggests
Greenville as an ideal place for the location of
wood-working plants of all kinds. That a
furniture factory would pay handsomely has
been demonstrated in of similar
enterprises in this section of the State. For
instance, a town not many miles away has a
factory that was established less than fifteen
years ago on a capital of Since its
establishment it has paid an annual cash
to its stockholders of twenty-five per
cent., and in addition has from time to time
declared stock dividends until the capital stock
has been increased from the original
to without the expenditure of a single
cent on the part of the stockholders. There
is no reason why this experience should not be
repeated in Greenville, since Greenville has
quite as good, if not superior, advantages for
a furniture factory.
The supply of gum timber in Pitt and ad-
joining counties also presents advantages for
WITH the completion of a new line of
railway and the establishment of the
Eastern Training School, Greenville has en-
upon a new era and must now for
the building of
The first effect of the new railway will be a
readjustment of transportation facilities, and
that in turn means a wider distribution of
merchandise over the territory contiguous to
the town.
The coming the Training School must
add materially to the population, and will be
an advertisement of the city and its
Of course, the great thing is the enlarge-
of trade and the establishment of new
lines of business, but in connection with this
must come the building of new factories if
Greenville is to the city that it ought
to be and that it will be, if its advantages and
resources are properly exploited.
Hut outside capital is not enough. The
people of a town must show their faith in it
by themselves investing. There are many
enterprises that are needed in Greenville and
the success of which would assured from
the start. Many of these could lie established
by local capital. It is well known that smaller
industries are comparatively more profitable
to a town than large ones. Why should not
more enterprises lie started on local capital
There is nothing so reassuring to the outside
investor as to find the people of a town put-
ting money into enterprises themselves at the
same time that they invite outside capital to
come in and invest.
Greenville needs a cotton factory. Its knit-
ting mill is Hooded with orders and has
in the yarn with which to
its products. A local market is there-
fore at hand for a considerable part of the out-
put of a cotton mill. This condition has ex-
for a long time. In the meantime there
is capital enough in Greenville and county
seeking investment to readily build the much-
needed mill. Why should not a movement be
started to bring about the desired result A
properly conducted mill would net a handsome
profit to those owning stock in it, would give
employment to a large number of people,
would distribute a great amount of money
among the merchants and business men and
add largely to the population and commercial
importance of town.
the location in Greenville of factories using
the gum timber, such as plants for making
pie-plates, butter-dishes, trays, roller-
pins, bowls, wooden scoops, box and
other articles which can made of gum at
much smaller cost than they are now being
manufactured in the North, of maple, beech
and birch. It is claimed for the gum product
that it is not only very much cheaper than
that made of other timbers, but that it is
in quality. The time is not far distant
when wood working plants of all sorts will
have to move South, since the recent intro-
of gum into the manufacture of a
great number of articles has directed
to the enormous supply of the raw mate-
rial in this section. Here is an opportunity,
not only for Greenville, but for all the towns
in eastern North Carolina, either to start
of this sort on local capital or to interest
outside capital in their establishment.
Then there are a number of other enter-
prises suited to this section that might be
such as cotton-seed oil mills, fertilizer
factories, canning factories and the like. The
raw material for all such plants is easily ob-
here at low pi ices, and transportation
to the northern markets are good, with favor-
able freight rates.
In these days of sharp competition the
manufacturer must look for his profit in cheap
raw material, low transportation rates and the
ability to turn out the manufactured product
at a lower cost than his competitors, without
affecting its quality. Conditions in this sec-
favor such a result. Factory sites may
be had in Greenville at little or no cost, the
raw material is practically at the factory door
and the labor supply is adequate; labor
troubles are unknown, and competing rail-
roads, together with water transportation, in-
a low freight rate for all time.
Eastern North Carolina not only has rich
and varied resources, it has many towns that
possess unusual advantages for the location of
manufacturing enterprises. But no town in
the South possesses advantages superior to
those offered by Greenville for such enterprises
as are above named.

Court Justice Connor at o'clock

Connor refused bond
to either prisoner, and directed
the sheriff to and keep

and instructed the clerk to tax
the costs of the special habeas
corpus hearing in the general
bill of costs to follow the final

Remarkable Case of Dumb Brute's
Instinct of Preservation.
The mule has never been
having u great deal of
sense, but the instinct of self
preservation as evidenced by one
in this city yesterday was so
pronounced as to give to
the belief that he is endowed
with at least.
Hitched to a dray, the mule was
thrown ground in a collision
at South Front and
Hancock streets. His head fell
across the railroad track and
being pinioned by the shafts he
could not release himself, and
an approaching train made it
dangerous for the man to do any-
thing for him. The cars came
on and the mule lifted his head,
bent his neck double and
let the wheels pass without
him. This is vouched for by
reliable eye
