Like so many other good things

due to Greenville's grand old
man, ex Governor Thomas J-
Jarvis In doing so, he was very
materially aided by Mr. R J.

To the Members of the Greenville
Tobacco Board of
In accordance with the usual
custom your President desires to
submit his annual report for the
tobacco year of 1906 ending
August 1907.
First. That recording to the
report of the Secretary and
Treasurer of this Board of Trade,
there was sold upon various ware-
house floors in Greenville during
pounds of tobacco for the sum
of an average of
for the entire crop of the
past year. When compared
with the sales on this
for the year 1905 during
which year there was sold
pounds of tobacco, there
is shown a decrease in the
of pounds, but a decided in-
crease the price per pound.
The crop of 1905 averaging
Der hundred, and the crop
of 1906 averaging per
hundred, making a difference of
nor hundred in 1906
over 1905
Sec It gives pleasure
to report that there was less f
between the buyers and the
and more gen-
satisfaction among the plan-
in respect to conduct of
the tobacco sales during the past
year, than in the history of this
market, so far as your President
is informed and has observed.
Third. There seems to
among a great many
of the Board of Trade the
idea that it is the duty of the of-
to ferret out and prosecute
till violations and infractions of
the rules and regulations of the
Board of Trade. This is a mis-
taken idea. It is as much the
duty of each and every member
of this Board of Trade to report
the alleged offending member
can be and I assure you
that ho long as I may be connect-
ed with the tobacco Board of
Trade when a member has been
duly convicted of an infraction of
its rules. I will see that the fines
imposed are d. or the other
punishment prescribed by the
Board of Trade is carried into
effect. I desire to ask the earn-
and support of
every member of the Board of
Trade In seeing that the rules
and regulations are fully com-
plied with and out.
Fourth. I desire to thank the
of the Board
of Trade for their unvarying
courtesy to me as President of
the Board, and to assure them
that, without courtesy and sup-
port, the past tobacco year could
not possibly have been made as
successful as it was.
Fifth. The coming pa-
on fair to be i re of the. if
not, the best seasons in the his-
of the Greenville
and the only thing necessary to
mike it a complete and
to make Greenville the first to-
market in eastern North
Carolina, is that the
men and their stop
fighting other so much, and
and every member of this
Board of Trade put his shoulder
to the and work for the
of the Greenville market,
and then n those ware-
housemen and associates will
reap a reward than they
in the past.
Sixth. It is with sincere regret
that I am called upon to
the since our last meeting
of a very valuable, honest, in-
and useful member of
Board of Trade. Mr- R. S.
Evans. The members of this
Board of Trade will indeed miss
him during our coming years
work, and I respectfully suggest
that a committee of three
of this board be appointed
to ft resolutions in
respect to his death, and i
copy of the be spread upon

THE JAMESTOWN EXPOSITION.
List we.-k. North Carolina
week, at the Jamestown
was acknowledged by th
officers to be the great st in the
history of th- exposition up to
that time, Those net already
aware of tho greatness of North
Carolina, were more than con-

made history for the State.

would not begin to hold the crowd
that t attend the
and hear the speeches of
Governor Glenn and Lieutenant
Governor Winston. Governor
Swanson, of Virginia, also spoke
and gave a cordial greeting to
the North Carolinians
North Carolina has no cause to
feel the lea bit ashamed of her
part in the exposition. Her
State building is among the
handsomest on the grounds, and
her exhibits in the various build-
are not surpassed. The
North Carolina Society, of Nor-
folk, was proud to see so many
in the city and
cordially welcomed them. The
society tendered Governor Glenn
and other State officers a brilliant
reception-
Something that caught the eye
of the thousands of Tar Heels
visiting Norfolk was the
of the store of the Which-
ard Co. on Main street.
The store of these enterprising
North Carolinians who are doing
a large wholesale business in
Norfolk was beautifully decor-
with North flags
and colors, and was admired by
every passer from the piers up
town, and at times a crowd would
collect in front of the store. A
squad of soldiers were so
pressed by the decorations that
they stopped in front of the
store, sang and
other State songs and gave three
cheers for the Old North State.
There was another impressive
in the auditorium in
the midst of the North Carolina
exercises on Thursday- Just
Lieutenant Governor Winston
had spoken and before Governor
Glenn spoke, the band and or-
played When
the chorus was reached a rich
soprano voice was heard to take
up the words of the song and
thousands of others joined in the
seeming to catch the in-
from the clear, sweet
voice whose lead swelled distinct-
above all the others and the
combined volume of band and
orchestra. Anyone familiar with
her could rapidly recognize it as
voice of Mrs. J. B. Cherry,
of Greenville.
We started out to this
article about the exposition, but
appear to be making it all of
North Carolina. That pardon-
able, however, nothing th. re
was bigger than the Old North
State The exposition is really
immense; far surpassing what
we expected to find. The
grounds are superb in design,
the buildings models of
beauty, and the
along the shores of Hampton
Roads make a picture never co be
forgotten. It is worth a trip
there just to see these, even if
the visitors could not go inside
