This railroad extends eighteen and a half miles from Cam- 
eron to Kallison through the hest section of Moore county. 

Carthage, the comity seat of this richest county in the 
centre of the long-leaf pine region, is situated on this road, 
ten miles -west of Cameron, about 800 feet above the sea-level, 
and is noted for its pure and dry atmosphere and beautiful 
scenery. 

As a resort it is a fitting spot in which to spend either 

winter or summer. Quite a number of Northern people visit 
this place annually. 
As a fruit-growing section the country adjacent to Carthage 

is unexcelled in quality of soil and the climatic conditions are 

perfect. 

Moore county offers to settlers and investors the greatest ad- 
vantages to be found in the South. Truck and fruit-growers 
have here quick connection -with Northern markets. 

The people* are the best and sturdiest class in the South and 
invite new comers of good character and honest purpose. 

Business enterprises find here excellent locations and great 
inducements are offered.

The Aberdeen & Rockf ish 

RAILROAD, AND 

Its Resources. 

* 

The business of this road, -which has forty-four miles in op- 
eration, is increasing yearly. 

It has developed a rich and prosperous section, -well adapted 
to TRUCK and FRUIT GROWING, as well as TOBACCO, COT- 
TON, WHEAT and other STAPLES. It is an excellent farm- 
ing section. 

BARGAINS IN LAND. 

LANDS CAN BE PURCHASED ON REASONABLE TERM3 
AT LOW FIGURES, and the wise farmer can in a few years 
make enough to pay for his land. Climate, soil and quick con- 
nection to the Northern Markets make it an ideal section for 
growing early vegetables and fruit. 

FINE TIMBZR LAND SECTION. 

The main freights of the ABERDEEN AND ROCKFI I 
RAILROAD in its early history were lumber and the products 
of the pine — Spirits of Turpentine, Tar, Rosin. It runs 
through a country that furnishes fine Juniper Poles, grows 
fine Cotton, and other crops that give heavy freights. 

FINE WATER POWER. 

On the line of the Aberdeen and Roekfish road is a FINE 
WATER POWER, furnishing sufficient power to run a lai o 
factory. It has been idle hitherto because far removed from 
railroad transportation. It is destined to be the sits of a. 
flourishing manufacturing town. 

THE TOWN OF RAEFORD. 

Located about midway on the line of the ABERDEEN AND 
ROC T ^FI c H is situated the growing and prosperous town cf 
RAEFORD. It has splendid school and church facilities, with 
enterprising and prosperous business houses that sell to a 
large section of the surrounding country. 

FINE OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVESTMENT. 

The building of the Aberdeen and Roekfish Railroad has 
opened up fine opportunities for investment, as well as unex- 
celled opportunities for home-making.

THE \"i;i II ( \I;m un \ \ EAR BOOK. 



— THE- 

Atlantic&North Carolina R. R. 

Froni Goldsboro to Moreliead City, its Ocean terminus, runs, 
for a distance of 95 miles, through the centre of the great 
trucking belt of Eastern North Carolina, than which no sec- 
tion on the Atlantic Coast, from the Capes of Virginia to the 
Keys of Florida, is better adapted to or more productive in 
the growth of vegetables, both early and late, of every de- 
scription, and of fruits, vines and grapes of every variety. 

By reason of the great extent of its land waters, the climate 
is mild and temperate, and the occurrence of frosts— the 
great dread of Truckers — reduced to a minimum. 

Its fine and unfailing natural pasturage, available during 
the entire year, renders it unsurpassed for Stock liaising 
and Dairy Farming. Large crops of the finest grades of 
"Bright Tobacco" are grown and sold at remunerative prices, 
while Grain of every kind is easily and profitably cultivated. 

The soil is from a deep black to a light sandy loam. 

In the Sounds and Rivers, fish and oysters and other water 
products are abundant, while the forest and fields are filled 
■with game, from the bear and the deer to the rabbit and the 
quail. 

The climate is salubrious and healthful. 

The Winters are mild, the Summers pleasant. 

Flowers bloom in open the year round. 

Land values are reasonable, and settlers are given a hearty 
welcome. 

The Atlantic Hotel and Cottages, 

MOREHEAB CITY, N. C. 

The management of the Atlantic & North Carolina Railroad 
Company desires to announce its recent purchase of all that 
splendid property located at Moreliead City, its eastern ter- 
minus, the popular and justly famous Atlantic Hotel and Cot- 
tages. It is its purpose to do everything possible to make it 
in reality, what nature intended it to be, the best and most 
popular seaside summer and winter home on the South At- 
lantic Coast. Every facility for doing so will be provided for 
those, both in and out of the State, who desire to avail them- 
selves of the comforts and advantages of this delightful 
spot.

portation, address, S. E. DIEE, Gen'l Supt., New Bern, N. C.

THE NORTH I AIM) I. IN \ \ EAR HOOK. 



The Boston Journal of Education, 

Speaking of the new seiies of readers (GRADED 
CLASSICS) published by the B. F. JOHNSON 
PUBLISHING COMPANY, says: 

"These Graded Classics are so admir- 
ably written and so beautifully made 
as to challenge comparison with any 
books made in the North. 

"There is no reason why such books 
as these should not be used in Boston 
and Chicago as well as in Charleston 
and New Orleans." 

These books are not only being used, in many of the largest 
and most progressive schools of the North and West, but they 
are proving a remarkable exception to the rule that a prophet 
(or a book) is not without honor save in his (or its) own 
country. 

Here at home our greatest teachers delight to do them 
honor. A great host of Southern educators, including 
such men as PROFESSOR CLAXTON, recently of the North 
Carolina State Normal College, PROFESSOR C. ALPHONSO 
SMITH, of the State University, PROFESSOR WOOFTER, of 
the Georgia Normal College, and PROFESSOR JORDAN, of 
the University of Arkansas, join with a like multitude from 
the North, including such authorities as MISS ELIZABETH 
HARRISON, of the Chicago Kindergarten College, MRS. EIDA 
BROWN McMURRY, of the Illinois Normal University, and 
MISS MARY CHEVES WEST, of the Horace Mann School, in 
singing the praises of this sane, up-to-date, artistic, satisfy- 
ing series of readers.

amendment to our State Constitution, and 
upon the benefits that have resulted (.Here- 
from, and we pledge the Democratic party 
to faithfully maintain it by every legiti- 
mate means; and we demand that the Re- 
publican party shall declare its purpose 
either to accept or reject it, and until it is 
accepted as a finality by all parties we de- 
clare it to be the duty of the white people 
to stand together for all's protection. 

Tlie Democratic party, represi nting tin 
intelligence, the virtue and the mi 
of the people of the State, recalls with 
pleasure the entire absence of scandals dur- 
ing its administration of public affairs, ana 
the gratifying advancement which has 
made amongst us in all industrial lines. He 
have fostered agriculture and promoted 
manufacturing, and have given capital full 
security and Lave protected the rights of 
labor. 

We pledge the party to a fair and just 
system of taxation, and we demand that all 
subjects of taxation shall bear their just 
and equal proportion of the burdens of 
government. 

AVe renew our pledges for the extension 
and improvement of the public school sys- 
tem of the State, so that it may keep pace 
with the needs and conditions of our peo- 
ple. We point with pride to the great im- 
petus and progress in this great work during 
•„he last two years, and call attention to 
the fact that this year, for the first time 
in the history of the State, every school 
district has been able to maintain a public 
free school for four months, as required by 
the Constitution. We believe that the per- 
manent prosperity of the people of thit> 
State depends largely upon the construc- 
tion and maintenance of good roads, and we 
pledge the party to the hearty support ot 
all wise measures to that end. 

We heartily commend and endorse the 
administration of Governor Charles B. 
Aycock and other State officials for their 
faithful execution of the parity's promises, 
in so far as the same has been possible thus 
early in their terms of office. We likewise 
extend our appreciation and endorsement to 
United States Senator F. M. Simmons and 
to our Democratic Representatives in Con- 
gress, and congratulate them and the people 
of the State for their faithful official ser- 



vices to the State in the councils of trie 
nation. 

We re-affirm our allegiance to the Demo- 
cratic party and its principles as enunciated 
in its national platform. 

We denounce the policy of imperialism as 
inauguarated by the Republican national 
administration, and declare it to be ob- 
noxious to our form of government and 
fraught with danger to the very existence 
of the republic. 

We denounce as oppressive and illegal 
those combinations of capi/tal kiwn as 
and monopolies that stifle competi- 
lion, throttle individual effort and destroy 
the generous spirit of rivalry that 
exist in the commercial world. 

We denounce the deceptive and illusorj 
course of the Republicnn party in Con- 
gress, in futhering the existence of trust* 
by its refusal to enact, legislation restrain- 
ing them ind to enforce in good faith tnt 
existing laws against them, tliat party be- 
ing in the full control of all branches of 
the government. 

We denounce the present iniquitous, un 
just and trust-creating protective tariff, im 
posed upon the people by the Republican 
party, and demand its immediate revision, 
to the end that all unjust burdens shall be 
removed, and 'specially tliose upon the 
necessaries of life. Its provisions enable the 
trusts to extort from the people- unreason- 
able profits and to sell their products to 
consumers at home at greater prices than 
are charged for the same goods to the for 
eign consumer. We demand, therefore, that 
all such trust-mada goods be placed on the 
free list. 

We favor the establishment of the ApaH- 
ehian Park, and urge that our Senators and 
Representatives in Congress use their best 
efforts to secure its establishment. 

We again appeal to the people with a 
confident belief that it is only from the 
Democratic party that there can be ex- 
pected an honest, capable and efficient ad- 
ministration of the affairs of state, a. d 
challenge a comparison with the iniquit ; es 
of Fusion ar.d ±i ^-publican rule. 

We promise the people of the State a 
continuance of the honest, safe, conserva- 
tive and economical government which has 
always characterized Democratic rule, an 1 
pledge our best efforts for the advancement 
of the material prosperity and happiness o! 
the whole people.

We endorse the national platform of the 
Republican party adopted at Philadelphia, 
and point with piide to the unexampled 
which a Republican administra- 
n.i-5 brought to the country at large. 
Intelligence being the corner-stone of the 
State, and the education of the masses be- 
in™ dependi nt solely upon our public 
ror the support by public tax- 
ation of' at least a tour-months school in 
ever} school district in the State, and we 
;iui the Democratic party for its fail- 
ure to provide proper educational facilities 
for the education of the poor children oi 
the State during its lease of power from 
lo70 to 1895. 

We favor generous public aid to ail 
charitable institutions of the State, and 
the enactment of such pension laws as will 
give the ex-Confederate soldiers a more 
generous and equitable distribution of this 
fund than is provided for by the present 
pension laws. 

We favor such State legislation as will 
encourage the investment of capital, both 
foreign and domestic, and we respectfully 
invite capitalists from abroad to come 
among us and assist in the development of 
our wonderful resources. 

We invite the attention of the people oi 
the State to the clean, able and economic- 
administration of our State government b\ 
the Republican and Populist parties from 
1897 to 1901, and challenge a comparison 
of it with the present reckless manage- 
ment of our affairs by the Democratic party. 
W'e arraign the leaders of the Democratic- 
party as false to every pledge made in the

have increased expenditures in the sum oi

I respect to this matter, the Democratic 

I State Chairman is now forced to admit that 

18,000 white men will be denied the right 

to vote at the approaching election. 

We condemn them for their unwarranted 
effort to impeach two of our Supreme Court 
Justices for purely partisan purposes, for 
following precedents established by the 
Supreme Court of this State in a long line 
of decisions covering a period of more than 
sixty j r ears. 

We further condemn them for the enact- 
ment of legislation appropriating the money 
of the people for the purpose of defraying 
the expenses of persons indicted for the 
violation of laws which they had 'sworn to 
obey, and for granting amnesty to sucfc 
persons from prosecution in the State 
c-urts. 

We declare that when the Constitutional 
amendment was adopted by the people of 
North Carolina two years ago, it passed out 
of the realm of politics, and that if Gov- 
ernor Aycjck, Senator Simmons and others 
keep faith with tne people in the pledges 
then made, there can be no such thing as a 
race issue in the present campaign.

STATE DEBT.— The old debt, excepting such as is not recognized, has mostly been 
funded under the funding laws of 1879, the time prescribed for the exchange having 
been extended to January 1, 1903. These laws provided for the issue of (1) consolidat- 
ed 4 p. c. bonds due in 1910 to fund old ante-war bonds at 40 per cent of face value, 
"New" railroad bonds recognized as valid at 25 per cent, and bonds of 1866 and 
1668 at 15 per cent, nothing being given for overdue coupons; and (2) for new con- 
solidated 6 per cent bonds due in 1919, for which the North Carolina ER. construction 
bonds were made exchangeable at par, holders of construction bonds abating $240 of 
overdue interest on each $1,000 bond. The new bonds, both 4s and 6s, carry tax-re- 
ceivable coupons, and are exempt from "all State, county or corporate taxation or as- 
sessment, direct or indirect, general or special." 

An amendment to the State Constitution passed by the Legislature in 1879 and rati- 
fied by popular vote in 1880, forbids the General Assembly to pay or recognize as 
valid the following bonds: Special tax bonds $11,366,000; bonds to Chatham RR., 
1868, $1,030,000, and to Williamston & Tarboro RR., $150,000; Penitentiary bonds of 
1868, $44,000. The special tax bonds are in 3 classes, class 1 bearing the coupon of 
April, 1809, and since; class 2 bearing the coupon of October, 1869; class 3 bearing the 
coupon of April, 1S70. Holders of the special tax bonds brought suit to establish the 
validity of their bonds and the case was decided in favor of the State. 

The recognized debt which had been adjusted up to December 1, 1900, stood as fol- 
lows: 

LOANS — Interest. Principal. 

NAME AND PURPOSE— P. Ct. Payable. When Due. Outstanding. 

Construction bonds c 6 A&O April 1, 1919 $2,720,000 

Renewal bonds c 4 J & J July 1, 1910 3,397,350 

Bonds of 1889— 

Prison debt bond 4 J& J January 1, 1909 110,000 

Prison farm bonds 4 J&J January 1, 1909 60,000 

PAR VALUE OF BONDS.— The consolidated 4s are $50, $100, $500 and $1,000; the con- 
solidated 6s $1,000 each. The prison bonds are for $500 and $1,000 each. 

INTEREST on the consolidated 4s and 6s is payable in New York at the National 
Bank of the Republic and in Raleigh. 

TOTAL DEnT RECOGNIZED AND TOTAL ADJUSTED— The funding act of March 

4, 1879, was extended to January 1, 1903. The recognized fundable debt which has 

been funded and the Tecognized fundable debt which has not been funded aref a^ 

follows: 

Funded. Not funded. 

Consols 6 per cent $2,720,000 $22,000 

Consols 4 oer cent 3,397,350 218,420 

To the foregoing we should add the further fact that the State does not have to 
raise money for the interest on the six per cent bonds for the reason that the lease 
of the North Carolina Railroad provides a fund for the payment of the interest there- 
on, and the --ate holds three millions of the stock of the road, which if sold would much
