heard plainly yesterday the
ion of discriminations in freight
rates against North Carolina in
favor of Virginia from business
men who get shipments over its
read.
This was at a conference held
in the office of the North Carolina
Corporation Commission between
Mr. the Commission,
and the men who are
at the freight rates. General
Julian S. Carr, of Durham, told
of a rate on flour cents in ex-
of Lynchburg. for a haul
nearly one-fourth of the distance
for which Lynchburg pays
cents. His son Mr. J. S. Carr. j Pin top,

was pooled with the on

of six cents on

Virginia towns. Mr. J. S- Man-
pointed out the injustice
done North Carolina by the road
and Mr A. A. Thompson, of
stated that co
would be filed with the Inter-
state Commerce Commission.
Mr. took it all in the
best of nature and was, as Mr.
Thompson said, as frank as could
be in admitting that higher rates
were charged by the Norfolk

than in Virginia, though
urged that this was because of .

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
