THE JACKSON HEALTH RESORT 



DANSVILLE, NEW YORK. 




Has been known for twenty years as the Jackson Sanatorium 

The word Sanatorium, which is applicable to all institutions where therapeutic 
measures are employed for any form of illness, was used for the first time in the 
United States by Dr. Jackson to designate a healtn institution, when he built in 1883 
the first fire-proof structure erected in this country for that purpose. 

The general adoption at the present time of the name Sanatorium by proprietors 
of institutions for the insane or mentally unbalanced, and for cases of drug habit, has 
led to the error of confounding The Jackson Sanatorium with such establishments. 
Some persons who are not familiar with the character of this Health Institution have 
had an impression, because of its name — Sanatorium — that people afflicted with mental 
disorders were received and treated by its phvsicians. 

As the Jackson Sanatorium is not a place where insane people are received or 
where cases of d>-ug habit are made a specialty, its name has been changed in order 
to correct such misapprehensions on the part of the public. 

This renowned institution, holding to the distinctive character and methods which 
for forty-five years have made its works so successful and its manner of iife so helpful 
and attractive to health and rest-seekers, will be known hereafter as THE JACKSON 
HEALTH KESORT. 

Address, J. ARTHUR JACKSON, 
Manager, Dansville, New York.

20 THE NORTH CAROLINA YEARBOOK. 

JOHN BLUE, W. A. BLUE, 

President and Manager. Secretary and Treasurer. 

The Aberdeen &Rockfish 

RAILROAD, AND 

Its Resources 



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

It has developed a rich and prosperous section, well adapt- 
ed to TRUCK and FRUIT GROWING, as well as TOBACCO, 
COTTON, WHEAT and other STAPLES. It is an excellent 
farming section. 

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

FINE TIMBER LAND SECTION 

The main freights of the ABERDEEN AND ROCKFISH 
RAILROAD in its early history were lumber and the pro- 
ducts 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 Rockfish road is a FINE 
WATER POWER, furnishing sufficient power to run a 
large factory. It has been idle hitherto because far remov- 
ed from railroad transportation. It is destined to be the 
site of a flourishing manufacturing town. 

THE TOWN OF RAEFORD. 

Located about midway on the line of the ABERDEEN AND 
ROCKFISH is situated the growing and prosperous town of 
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 Rockfish Railroad has 
opened up fine opportunities for investment, as "well as un- 
excelled opportunities for home-making.

—THE— 

Atlantic&Nortb Carolina R. R. 

From Goldsboro to Morehead 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. Earge 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. 

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

The Atlantic Hotel and Cottages, 

MOREHEAD CITY, N. C. 

The management of the Atlantic & North Carolina Railroad 
Company purchased all that splendid property located at 
Morehead City, its eastern terminus, the popular and justly 

famous Atlantic Hotel and Cottages. It is its purpose to do 
everything possible to make it in reality, what nature in- 
tended it to be, the best and most popular seaside summer 
and winter home on the South Atlantic Coast. Every fa- 
cility for doing so •will be provided for those, both in and 
out of the State, who desire to avail themselves of the com- 
forts and advantages of this delightful spot.

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

RALEIGH KAPEFEARR.B. 



Opportunities are afforded settlers along the line of this railroad such as are not 
(quailed anywhere else in North Carolina. The country through which this system is 
operated is now being opened to investors and invitation is extended the best element 
of farmers from all sections of the country. 

Farming land of unusual richness is ready to produce immense harvests, trucking is 
offered the best soil and climatic conditions, tobacco growers here meet with unparal- 
lelled success, and new comers are sure of finding themselves among the sturdiest 
people in the State. 

FUQUAY SPRINGS 

The healthiest resort in North Carolina, with hotel and cottages open to visitors, 
nas proven itself one of the most charming resorts in the South. The health-restoring 
qua ities of the water have been given the highest recommendations by experts, and 
hundreds who have been benefitted bear testimony to its value. 

The Cape Fear Section 

The richest section of North Carolina is along the Cape Fear River and in the ter- 
ritory adjacent thereto. The Raleigh and Cape Fear Railroad has extended its lines 
into the very heart of this country and operates a double daily service from Raleigh 
to Lillington, its southern terminus, thus enabling those who live along its line to have 
quick connection with the Capital of North Carolina and with all points north and 
South. 

People of good character desiring new homes, men of money wishing to make safe 
investment, lumber men looking for the best field, and manufacturers who are seek- 
ing the best locations for their plants, should write 

Raleigh and Cape Fear Railroad,

Carthage Railroad 



This railroad extends eighteen and a half miles from Cam- 
eron to Hallison through the best section of Moore County. 

Carthage, the county 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 beau- 
tiful scenery. 

As a resort it is a fitting spot in which to spend either 
winter or summer. Quit e a number of Northen people visit 
this place annually. 

As a fruit growing section the country adjacent to Carthage 
is unexcelled in quality o f soil and the climatic conditions 
are perfect. 

Moore county offers to settlers and investors the greatest 
advantages 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.

32 THE NORTH CAROLINA YEAR BOOK. 

Ex-Governor McSweeney 

of South Carolina, after the 
School Books of the 

B. F. JOHNSON PUBLISHING 
COMPANY 

Adopted by the State, had been 
fully tested wrote 

"Ignoring the fact that by the introduction of your pub- 
lications we have saved the people of the State thousands 
of dollars, the fairness of your histories, and the justice 
done our Southern men and women in your Readers, has 
met with favorable criticism at the hands of educators of 
our State. 

"In my judgment, no State would make a mistake by 
adopting your text-books for use in their schools." 

Speaking of a large contract for school-books secured by 
the B. F. Johnson Publishing Company, Richmond, Va., the 
Richmond Times says: 

"Merit will tell and enterprise will tell; and the merit 
of the Johnson books and the enterprise of the concern have 
won the victory. '•

DEMOCRATIC STATE PLATFORM— 1902. 



49 



Democratic State PIatform==1902. 



We congratulate the people of North 
Carolina upon the adoption of the suffrage 
amendment to our State Constitution, and 
upon the benefits that have resulted uiere- 
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. 

The Democratic party, representing the 
intelligence, the virtue and the manhood 
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 been 
made amongst us in all industrial lines. We 
have fostered agriculture and promoted 
manufacturing, and have given capital full 
security and Live 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. 

We renew our pledgee 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 
pie. We point with pride to the great im- 
petus and progress in this great work during 
the 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 publn 
free school for four menths, as required by 
the Constitution. We believe that the per 
manent prosperity of the people of this. 
State depends largely upon the construc- 
tion and maintenance of good roads, and we 
pledse the party to the hearty support ol 
all wise measures to that end. 

We heartily commend and endorse the 
administration of Governor Charles B. 
Aycock and other State onicials for their 
faithful execution of the party'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 eongra/tulate them and the people 
of the State for their faithful official ser- 



vices to the State in the councils of tne 
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 knovm aa 
trusts and monopolies that stifle competi- 
licn, throttle individual effort and destroy 
the generous spirit of rivalry that snould 
exist in ithe commercial world. 

We denounce the deceptive and illusory 
course of the Republican party in Con- 
gress, in futhering the existence of trust* 
by its refusal to enact. legislation restrain- 
ing them md to enforce in good faith the 
existing laws against them, that party be- 
ing in the full control of ajl 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 those 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-made goods be placed on the 
free list. 

We favor the establishment of the Apali- 
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 tint 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 ard .^jpubliean 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 at 
the whole people.

REPUBLICAN STATIC PLATFORM.— 1902. 



Republican State Platform— 1 902 



We deplore and deeply mourn the death 
of President McKinley. His Christian char- 
acter, noble impulses and patriotic spirit 
have done more to strengthen Republican 
institutions than any other agency which 
has been employed in modern times; ana 
his life and work will prove a tower of 
strength to the Christian religion and to 
official integrity and fidelity for all time to 
come. 

While we deeply mourn the loss of oui 
beloved President, at the same time wt 
appreciate the fact that in President Roose 
vrlt we have a President whose honesty of 
purpose and patriotism are such as to assure 
us that tho affairs of the American people 
are in safe-keeping, and his faith in the 
principles of Republicanism is such as to 
guarantee a iaithful adherence to those 
ihings that have made for this republic the 
splendid reputation which it now has as a 
world power. 

We endorse the national platform of the 
Republican party adopted at Philadelphia, 
and point with pride to trie unexampled 
prosperity which a Republican administra- 
tion has brought to the country at large. 

Intelligence being the corner-stone of the 
State, and the education of the masses be- 
ing dependent solely upon our public 
schools, we favor the support by public tax- 
ation of at least a four-mouths school in 
every school district in the State, and we 
condemn the Democratic party for its fail- 
ure to provide proper educational facilities 
for the education of the poor children of 
the State during its lease of power from 
lo"0 to 1895. 

We favor generous public aid to all 
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 01 
the State to the clean, able and economic- 



last caiipaign.. 

They promised to reduce expenses, and 
instead of doing so they have increased ex- 
penditures in almost every departmc.uc of 
our State government. 

They promised to curtail rather than in- 
crease the number of offices, and instead of 
doing so they have increased the number 
of judges and solicitors from twelve to 
sixteen, and have made other increases in 
providing for the employment of clerical 
help that has not heretofore been deemed 
necessary under similar circumstances. 

They promised to reduce salaries, but 
instead of doing so they have increased the 
Governor's salary during his term of office, 
in violation of the Constiution, and have 
provided many ways by which the people 
are today taxed far in excess of any rate 
they have heretofore had to pay. 

They promised to reduce taxation, and 
instead of doing so tney have legislated so 
that our receipts increased within three 
years in the sum oi $800,419.97. 

They promised to reduce expenditures, and 
instead of doing so, in three years they 
have increased expenditures in the sum 01 
$1,0S8,545. 

They promised, by affidavit and otherwise, 
that no white man would be disfranchised 
under the amendment to our Constitution, 
but instead of observing their pledge with 
respect to this matter, the Democratic 
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 unwai ranted 
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 years. 

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 law3 which they had sworn to 
obey, and for granting amnesty to sue* 
persons from prosecution in the Statt 
curts. 

We declare that when the Constitutional 



administration of our State government bj j amendment was adopted by the people of 
the Kepublican and Populist parties from , North Carolina two years ago, it passed out 
1897 to 1901, and challenge a comparison I of the realm of politics, and that if Gov- 
of it with the present reckless manage- ernor Aycjck, Senator Simmons and others 
ment of our affairs by the Democratic party, keep faith with the people in .the pledget. 
We arraign the leaders of the Democratic ; then made, there can be no such thing as a 
party as false to every pledge made in the ; race issue in the present campaign.

Admitted as a State One of Original Thirteen. 

Total area of State (square miles) 52,250 

State Capital Raleigh 

Governor (term expires January 1, 1905) Charles B. Aycock.

Legislature meets biennially in odd years on the Wednesday after the first Monday 
in January, and there is no limit to length of sessions, but if sessions are continued

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 
1868 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 RR. construction 
bonds were made exchangeable at par, hold rs 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." The 4s of 1903 are also exempt from 
taxation. 

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 boids $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, 1870. 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, 1902, stood as fol-

PAR VALUE OF BONDS.— -The consolidated 4s are $50. $ion, $500 and $1,090; the con- 
solidated 6s $1,000 each. The prison bonds are for $500 and $100 each. The bonds of 
1903 are for $100, $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 DEiiT RECOGNIZED AND TOTAL ADJUSTED.— The funding act of March 
4, 1S79, was extended to January 1, 1905. The recognized fundable debt which has 
been 'funded and the recognized fundable debt which has not been funded arej a^ 
follows: 

Funded. Not funded. 

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

Consols 4 per cent 3,399,150 216,620 

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 tent 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
