VANCED CIVILIZATION, and 
IN ALL THAT GOES TO MAKE LIFE WORTH LIVING. 



THE TERRITORY OF THE 

Atlantic Coast Line 

IS PRE-EMINENT. 



Here are some of the 


staple 


crops of the 


different sections of this 


area: 








All Vegetables and 




Wheat 


Tobacco, 


Small Fruits, 




Cora, 


Cotton, 


Peaches, 




Oats and 


Peanuts, 


Grapes, Figs, 




Other 


Hay, 


And Other Fruits. 




Grains. 


Rice. 



The policy of the Atlantic Coast Line is to foster all develop- 
ments along its line. IT IS THE GREATEST TRUCKING ROAD 
IN AMERICA, and it provides every facility for getting farm, 
garden, and orchard products to the Northern Markets in best 
possible condition, in shortest time, and at lowest rates. 

In no part of the country is there a greater abundance of game 
and fish than in the eastern counties of North and South Caro- 
lina 

Southern and Western farmers are invited to write for informa- 
tion in detail about the territory of the Atlantic Coast Line which 
extends through the States of Virginia, North Carolina, South 
Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida.

JXJDICIAIiJLY DETERMINED. 

In Guilford Superior Court, December 19th, 1903, in an impor- 
tant ease, it was established and admitted by both plaintiff and de- 
fendant, that the circulation of The News and Observer both In 
1901 and 1903 was and is larger than that of any other news- 
paper published in North Carolina, and that its influence was also 
greater than that of any other newspaper. 



THE NORTH CAROLINA YEAR BOOK. 23 



HEALTH SEEKERS! 
HOME SEEKERS!!! 



Men With Capital 
Looking for investment! ! 



There is no section of the 
South that offers so many advantages 
to these three classes as the section 

traversed by the 

Aberdeen & Rock fish 

RAILROAD. 

It penetrates rich lands specially 
adapted to the growth of truck, fruit, 
cotton, and other profitable crops. 
This is a new section recently opened 
up by railroad facilities and fertile 
land can be bought here at less price 
than similar land can be bought in 
sections long having transportation fa- 
cilities. It is populated by excellent 
citizens and new comers find the best 
church and school advantages. 

It runs through the famous Long 
Leaf Pine Region, of Moore, Robeson 
and Cumberland, the healthiest sec- 
tion in America, and is only within a 
few miles of Pinehurst and Southern 
Pines, noted health resorts. The cli- 
mate along tha Aberdeen and Rock- 
fish is as health-giving as at those 
famous winter health resorts. It con- 
nects at Hope Mills with the Atlantic 
Coast Line and at Aberdeen with the 
Seaboard Air Line and the Aberdeen 
and Asheboro railroads, thus guaran- 
teeing best railroad facilities in all 
directions. 

Full information given to ALL 
HEALTH SEEKERS, HOME SEEK- 
ERS, AND INVESTMENT SEEKERS, 
as to water power, farm lands, manu- 
facturing sites, health resort sites 
furnished upon application to the offi- 
cers.

These books present a new method of 
teaching language and grammar which 
is in marked contrast to the anti- 
quated system in vogue a generation 
ago. They meet modern conditions in 
every respect and teach the child how 
to express his thought in language 
rather than furnish an undue amount 
of grammar and rules. From the start 
lessons in writing language are em- 
ployed simultaneously with those in 
conversation. :::::::

Democratic State Platform — 1 904. 



Adopted at Greensboro, June 24 
1904. 

The Democratic party of North Carolina, 
in convention assembled, declaring anew its ' 
allegiance to the fundamental principles of 
government as expressed in former platforms, 
congratulates the people of the State that a 
Democratic administration has again estab- 
lished throughout their borders the reign 
of law and liberty and the reign of peace 
and progress. Radical rule, with its night- 
mare of horrors, has passed away. Our peo- 
ple are no longer employed in guarding 
their homes and protecting their liv?s, lib- 
erty and property as they were under Re- 
publican rule; but, safe in the protection 
of law, breathing the air of liberty, and 
er.joying the freedom which conies from 
security, our men and our women are de- 
vcting their energies to the peaceful pur- 
suits of honest industry, to the education 
of their children and to the care of the 
helpless and unfortunate. Agriculture, man- 
ufacturing and commerce are bounding for- 
ward in helpful rivalry, neither receiving 
nor desiring subsidies or protection e> cept 
that afforded by a stable and honest gov- 
ernment. Nowhere in North CaroMna is 
there riot or disorder; nowhere is there 
suffering or destitution. Such are the fruits 
of peace and order of honesty and efficiency. 
of intelligence and patriotism, of Demo- 
cratic adir-inistration under the leadership 



of the peerless orator, statesmen and edu- 
cator, Charles Brantley Aycock, and the 
cfher honest and efficient public officials 
associated with him in the State adminis- 
tration in all three departments of govern- 
ment. 

North Carolina has again come into her 
own. She stands in the forefront of South- 
ern States, leading all in educational and 
industrial progress. Her sons are looked to 
at home and abroad for educational, incus- 
trial and commercial leadership. What a 
contrast to conditions existing lecently 
when the degradation of our educational, 
charitable and penal institutions, through 
the vices, incompetency, extravagance and 
corruption of Republican boards of man- 
agement caused the State to hang her head 
in shame and stand an object of pity among 
her sister States. 

The Democratic party points with pride 
to its settlement of the race problem in 
North Carolina — a settlement that depends 
upon Democratic supremacy for its perma- 
nence. The Constitutional Amendment fur- 
nishes to all the people of the State safe- 
guards of peace and order, of life, liberty 
and happiness, and guarantees educational, 
religious and social progress as well as in- 
dustrial prosperity and development. 

We re-affirm our constitutional declara 
tions that "religion, moralit.v a:id knowl- 
edge being necessary to good government 
and the happiness of mankind schools and

mpans of education shall forever be en- 
couraged," and "that + he people have a 
right to the privilege of education, and 
that it is the duty of the State to guard 
and maintain that right," and we express 
our hearty approval of the educational 
work of the present administration, and our 
giatification, at the great improvem.;.it 

made in our educational condit'ons under 
the present Democratic adminirtra..on, and 
would call attention to the fulfillment of 
the former premise of the party to provile 
at least .i four months' school term for 
all the children of the State. And we 
further express cur cordial commendation 
r.f the work of the teaching profession fo: 
the mental, moral and material advance- 
r ent of the people, and pledge for the fu- 
ture our best endeavors to strengthen and 
increase the usefulness and efficiency of 
our whole public educational system. 

We approve the general principles of the 
Watts law regulating the manufacture and 
sale of liquors, and limiting the same to lo- 
calities in which there may be adequate 
police protection. The principle that no 
saloon or still shall operate except under po- 
lite protection is as sound as that whiskey 
shall not be sold to minors, to drunkards, 
or on Sundays, or near the schools and 
churches. The General Assembly has the 
power, and when controlled by the D'cmo- 
c in tic party can be trusted to make nil 
amendments that experiencce and conditions 
nay demonstrate to be wise and proper. 

The contrast between the present and the 
preceding administration of the .State Prison 



S] icaks trompet-tongued of Democratic elfi- 
ciency and Republican rascality and imbecil- 
ity. In all the history of the State the low- 
est level of immorality, venality, and in- 
humanity was reached in the vnanag meat 
o'l the State convicts under the adminis- 
tration of Daniel L. Bussell. Today the in- 
stitution is free from debt and has on hand 
a surplus large enough to pay the bonds 
necessitated by Republican peculation i\nd 
inefficiency. We pledge the party to con- 
tinued business-like and humane manage- 
ment of this institution. 

We call attention to the success that has 
attended the establishment of the insurance 
department which has increased our annual 
receipts by $90,000, and furthermore, in ad- 
dition to this increase, that fees now re- 
ceived by the State in this department 
which formerly were allowed to the official 
collecting them, are more than enough to 
cover all increases and additions in sala- 
ries of executive and judicial officers. 

We pledge the party to a fair .and just 
system of taxation in which all subjects of 
taxation shall bear their just and equal 
proportions of the burdens of government. 

After long and careful deliberation an! 
conference with many of its creditors, the 
Stale of North Carolina adjusted it? debt 
upon a basis so fair and honorable as to 
win the approval of the financial world and 
to secure ratification by nearly every credi- 
tor cf the State. During the present year 
attempts have been made to re-open the 
question settled at that time bv the State's 
wisest and best man. The Democratic paity

The Democratic party established the sys- 
tem of pensioning Confederate toldiers and 
opened the Soldiers' Home to the care of 
the veterans who responded to the call of 
the State in the War Between the States. 
Every dollar given them was appropriated 
or forced by the Democratic Legislature or 
Democratic public sentiment. We pledge 
the party to a fuller discharge of a debt 
that can never be fully paid to these aging 
heroes who offered their lives as a sacrifice 
upon the altars of their country. 

We point with pride to (be record cf the 
Democratic party in its care of the unfor- 
tunate classes of our State and promise to

tions until all the indigent insane are cared

should be under control of the sovereign 
and amenable to the law. But being useful 
and necessary incidents of business, all 
their rights should be guarded and pro- 
tected by the law. Like other citizens they 
shculd be protected from wrong and oppres- 
sion. Especially should tht-y be protected 
from suits in form to procure receiverships 
cesigned to wreck the properties and i ".vans- 
fer them from tlreir rightful owners to the 
possession and control of financial adven- 
turers. 

We call upon Cor.press to enact laws clisr- 
ly defining liie powers of Federal judges in 
the appointment of receivers and to protect 
corporations against improper and illegal 
appointments. 

We favor the establishment of the Appa- 
lachian Forest Reserve, and urge our Sena- 
tors and Representatives to continue their 
efforts to secure the establishment of the 
same. 

At no period in Ibe history of the repub- 
lic has the Democratic party been so nee s- 
sary to the welfare of the people and the 
cause of free government, as it is tcday. A 
great conservative force, it stands a barrier 
between the recklessness of organized greed 
and the desperation of oppressed humanity. 
Its mission is to give liberty and justice to 



all, monopoly and tyranny to none; to re- 
strict the Federal government within the 
constitutional limits of its authority, to re- 
sist its every aggression beyond the scope 
of its delegated power; to limit its power 
of taxation to the needs of tliL- government 
economically administered; to distribute 
impartially the Durdens of government; to 
preserve unimpaired the reserved rights of 
the States and of the people; to maintain 
the right of lo:al self-government; these .ire 
and have always been among the funda- 
mental principles of the Democratic part) 

It is especially necessary to restrict the 
executive head of the Federal government 
within the constitutional limits of his au- 
thority, and no argument of temporary ex- 
pedi ncy can justify the assumption by him 
of powers conferred exclusively upon the 
legislative department of the government or 
the violation by him of plain provisions of 
constitutional, statute and treaty law. 

For the last eight years the Republican 
party has been in complete control of the 
Federal government in all its branches. Dur- 
ing that time trusts and monopolies have 
multiplied. They have increased their ex- 
tortions from the people. They dominate 
tie' Republican party and compel it to ad- 
minister the affairs of the republic in Ineir 
selfish interest. We condemn the President 
for his surrender to trust influences and for 
his failure to enforce the law against monop- 
olies and monopolists. Congress appropriated 
$500,000.00 to employ special counsel to en- 
force the laws against trusts. In twelve 
months he expended for sueli purpose only 
one-twentieth of that sum. In the midst o; 
crime and havoc committed by these wrong- 
doers, he will not stop (lie violation of 
statutes enacted for the protection of the 
people, nor punish the criminals who plun- 
der them, although his attention was called 
to the manner in which the perpetrators 
might, h.' punished by recent decisions of the 
Supreme Court. 

We denounce the present iniquitous, un- 
just and trust-creating protective tariff im- 
posed upon the people o.\ the Republican 
party and demand its immediate revision, 
to the end that all unjust burdens 'hail be 
removed, and especially those apon the nec- 
essaries of life and those that enable the 
trust 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 goo. Is to the 
foreign consumer. 

We review with alarm the growing ten- 
dency of the government under Republican 
administration toward despotic centraliza- 
tion at home, as well as despotic imperial- 
ism abroad. vV<? denounce the policy of the 
Republican party in building up a strong 
centralized government at Washington at the 
expense of the sacred rights of the sovereign 
States; that which in its policy and con- 
duct has reversed the clause of the constitu- 
tion, reserving to the States all rights not 
specifically conferred upon the Federal gov- 
ernment, and has ass-umed for the central 
government at Washington the vast residium 
of power solemnly guaranteed to the peo- 
ple by the constitution. The inevitable con- 



sequence of this policy and practice will be 
the destruction of popular government and 
the establishment of a military empire. Con- 
fidently relying upon these fundamental 
principles of government and appealing to 
the record of our party in the past, we in- 
vite all who believe in popular liberty, pop- 
ular education, popular government and 
white supremacy, in freedom, both at home 
and abroad, in honesty, efficiency, simplicity 
and economy of administration, in the re- 
moval of monopolies and oupwrssion, under 
whatever guise and by whomsoever prac- 
ticed, to unite with us in maintaining in 

North Carolina Democratic rule and in de- 
stroying Republican misrule in the United 
States. 



Republican State Platform— 1 904. 



1. The Republican Party of North Caro- 
lina, in convention assembled, at Greens- 
boro, North Carolina, on this the 18th day 
of May, 1904, hereby endorses and ratifies 
the principles and policies enumerated in 
the platforms of the National Republican 
Party, adopted in 1896 and 1900. In spite 
of Democratic opposition the policies and 
principles of our party have been written 
into law, and we point with pride to its 
achievements. It has blessed our country 
with unparalleled prosperity. It has car- 
ried happiness to every home. It has ex- 
panded our commerce. It has broadened our 
territory.. It has made supreme our influ- 
ence at home and abioad. It has raised our 



credit, until today it is the highest in the 
world. It has ever stood for universal free- 
dom, and has carried the blessings of liberty 
into the islands of the sea. It has held our 
honor unsullied, and our flag untarnished, 
until we have taken cur place as the arbiter 
of the nations of the world. Throughout its 
long lease of power, its Presidents and lead- 
ers have always leen equal to the great- 
est demands; and row the country, with all 
its vast and varied interests, has a Republi- 
can President in the person of Theodore 
Roosevelt who has shown himself no less 
equal to every emergency, who has devel- 
oped a statesmanship that entitles him to 
the confidence of the nation, and for these

reasons we hereby endorse his administration 
and pledge our earnest support for his nom- 
ination and election. 

2. We endorse the Republican adminis- 
tration in protecting the rights of the peo- 
ple against monopolies, trusts and other un- 
lawful combinations. 

3. We endorse the Rspubhcan party for 
its action in constructing the Pan.ima Canal, 
and the people of 1he United States from 
all sectiors, especially from the South, are 
to be congratulated upon the prospects of 
so soon securing the great interoceanic 
waterway which will give new impetus to 
the nation's commerce, and prove a blessing 
to the country at krge, and especially to 
the South. 

4. We endorse the foreign policy of ex- 
parsion ;jf the ReDublican party by which 
Porto Rico, Hawaii" and the Philippines have 
I pen annexed to the United States, thus 
opening up a ne\v market to the manufac- 
turers of this country. 

5. We endorse the Republican party for 
liberating the Cubans from Spanish tyranny 
and oppression, and point with pride to 
their success and progress since the estat- 
lishment of the Republican form of govern- 
ment. 

C. We deplore the death of the lat,^ Sena- 
tor Marcus A. Hanna, and recognize in his 
exalted life and character the highest type 
of the patriotic citizen, the Christian gen- 
tleman and the wise statesman, and cherish 
his life history as one of the most oreeicus 
heritages of the Republican party. 

7. We most heartily endorse the able, 
fearless and aggressive course of Hon. Thos. 
S. Rollins, our State Chairman, and com- 
mend his efforts for the success of the party 
in the State. 

8. The Republican party favors the Appa- 
lachian Park, and we promise to use all 
honorable means to bring about legislation 
establishing the same. 

9. We favor the education of the masses, 
but denounce the practice of the present 
Democratic State administration in its ef- 
forts to maka the common schools a part 
of the Democratic machine, to be ran for 
partisan purposes, until their usefulness has 
been greatly impaired and those most in 
need of education largely deprived of its ad- 
vantages. We pledge ourselves to the cor- 
rection of these abuses, and to so amend the 
law as to remove our free schools as far as 
possible from the realm of politics, and 
thus prevent their being diverted to parti- 
san advantages, an 1 to give to the system 
an elasticity that will inure to I he oest in- 
terests of those most in need of its help. 

10. The Republican party favors generous 
public aid to all charitable institutions in 
the State, and the enactment of pension 
laws more liberal and just to the old Con- 
federate soldiers. 

31. We denounce the policy of the Demo- 
cratic party in its effort to destroy those 
they cannot use for partisan ends, which has 
resulted in driving both labor and capital 
from our State, rheieby decreasing the 
sources of taxation at the very time their 
administration has bankrupted our treasury. 



12. We denounce the management of the 
Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad and 
Hotel by the Democratic party as incompe- 
tent, corrupt and extravagant, and declare 
that we favor the leasing of that property, 
and promise the pec pie of North Carolina 
that if elected to power we will forever put 
an end to such scandals as have :ecently 
been brought to light in connection with 
its management. We denounce the Gover- 
nor's star chamber investigation of that 
road and declare that the secret and clande- 
stine investigation into its aflairs was an out- 
rage and a disgrace, and one which the citi- 
zens of ths State should not tolerate. 

13. We denounce the hypoe.sy of the Dem- 
ocratic party in its effort to deceive tha 
people by saying they had not raised the 
rate of taxation, while they have forced an 
increased valuation on all property by leg- 
islation, have created a commission tor this 
express purpose, and have '.hereby largely 
increased the burden of taxation upon our 
people. As an evidence of this, we ask 
every taxpayer to compare his receipt for 
the taxes of 1903 with those of former 
years. 

14. We denounce that policy of the Dem- 
cratic party that ce-nti'iuously and insid- 
lemsly attacks local self-government by leg- 
islative appointment of Justices of the 
Peace, County Commissioners and other offi- 
cers all over the State, and elemand that all 
matters pertaining to local affairs and 
county government be left entirely with 
the voters of the communities and counties 
concerned. 

15. We denounce frauds, robberies, intimi- 
dation in elections, and we appeal to the 
honest citizens of North Carolina to use 
their best efforts in seeing that the coming 
election is free from corruption, and is con- 
ducted honestly in all respects. 

16. We denounce that spirit of anarchy in 
the Democratic party -"hat prompted our 
Governor to say he would have emptied the 
State Treasury' in ete-fense of these indicted 
for -election frauds before one of them 
shculd be convicted, and we condemn the 
Democratic machine for defending crimi- 
nals at the expense of the taxpayers. 

17. We condemn the Democratic party 
machine for its unwarranted efforts to im- 
peach our Supreme Court Judges for parti- 
san pui poses. 

18. We favor, "3 we have ever favored, 
just and equal laws for the promotion of 
temperance, but in pursuance of our time- 
honored policy of Local Self-Govemment we 
favor a law which submits to the qualified 
voters of the several counties and incorpora- 
ted towns of the State, at their request, 
the question of whether they shall or ;0iall 
not be permitted to make .-nd sell intoxi- 
cating liquors, and the faithful execution of 
their will as expressed at the ballot box. 

19. We denounce the present State admin 
istration as being the most extravagant in 
the history of North Carolina. The year 
1903 cost the taxpayers the enormous sum 
of $2,201,604.31, or nearly as much as was 
paid out during the entire four years of

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, 1905. 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, 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." The 4s of 1903 are also exempt from 
taxation. 

In compliance with a decision of the United States Supreme Court handed down 
Feb. 1, 1904, North Carolina on April 1, 1905, paid to the State of South Dakota 
$27,400 representing the judgment obtained by the latter State on $10,000 bonds (do- 
nated to the State of South Dakota for the express purpose of bringing suit, an indi- 
vidual not being able to sue a State) issued by North Carolina and secured by 100 
shares of stock of the North Carolina Railroad Co. and the holders of which had 
refused to accept the provisions of the funding law of 1879. See V. 78, p. 594; V. 
79, p. 172S; V. 80, p. 1382; and also editorials on the subject, V. 78, p. 1248; V. 80, 
p. 1332. The State also settled with the remaining holders of this particular class 
of unfunded bonds, issuing the' $250,000 bonds of 1905 mentioned below to provide 
means of payment. 

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, "unless the proposing to pay the same shall have first been submitted 
to the people and by them ratified by a vote of a majority of all the qualified 
voters of the State at a regular election held for the purpose." The special tax bonds 
are in 3 classes, class 1 bearing the coupon of April, 1869, and since; class 2 bear- 
ing 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 May, 1905, stood as fol- 
lows:

PAR VALUE OF BONDS.— The consolidated 4s are $50, $100, $500 and $1,000; the con- 
solidated 6s $1,000 each. The prison bondb are for $500 and $1,000 each. The bonds of 
1903 are for $500 and $1,000 each. 

INTEREST on the consolidated 4s and 6s and South Dakota and Schafer bonds is 
payable in New York at the National Park Bank and in Raleigh. 

TOTAL DEBT RECOGNIZED AND TOTAL ADJUSTED.— The recognized fundable 
debt which has been funded and the recognized fundable debt which has not been 
funded are as follows: 

Funded. Not Funded. 

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

Consols 4 oer cent 3,409,450 165,120 

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 State holds three millions in the stock of the road, which if sold would much 
more than pay the principal. In addition the State holds other stocks and bonds 
valued at $1,028,000. 

ASSESSED VALUATION- -The State's assessed valuation prior to 1903, was made on the 
basis of about 2-3 of the cash value; in 1903, however, the attempt was to assess at 
tiue value, which accounts for the large increases in that year.
