ter of North'- Carolina, but It la In -the
mirt.ii nt h laraest population area be
tween 'Washington and Atlanta, with oyer
00.000 people in a radius 01 seveniy-uve
The location is on the border-line be
tween the coastal plane and the Piedmont
region, the country Is gently rolling and
the forests are a blend of those of the
East and the "West, with a wonderful va
riety of trees; the territory being well
watered and with.many varieties of soil.
Raleigh is ln,the heart of the main cot
ton and tobacco-section of the State. It
Is the county seat of Wake, the only
county In the United States which holds a
royal charter. The city, thus favored In
ever- way, has-become the political, edu
cational, social, musical, and publica
tion center of the State, and no other
place in the entire country has a larger
school population, both resident and from
nlher points. The population by the cen
sus of 1910. was 19418. and since that date
the increase has been greater than with
in any other five year period In all the
history of the city.
Raleigh is located almost precisely mid
way between New York and Florida, and
enjoys a mean annual temperature of 60
degrees, which Is .that of central Spain:
the percentage of sunshine throughout
the year averaging 61' degrees. The aver
ace annual rainfall Is SO inches. The
mean temperature In winter is 42 degrees;
spring, 59; summer. 77: autumn, 61.
City Has Railway Advantages.
Raleigh has very'superior railway ad
vantages, with four-.llnes. the Southern.
Seaboard Air Line, Norfolk. Southern &
Raleigh. Charlotte & Southern. The lat
ter foad is perfecting an extremely Im
portant connection with Charlotte, and
this particular development Is one the
most Important features of railway con
struction at present in progress in" this
section of the country. . Assurances have
been given that both the Atlantic Coast
Line, now only thirty jniles distant, and
the Norfolk & Western, only twenty, miles
away, will at an early-day build to Ral
eigh, which now has forty-eight passen
ger trains and fifty-two. freight- trains
daily, and which by reason of the "admir
able arrangement of the railway lines has
such facilities of travel that people from
fifty-two of the 400 counties In the Bute
can coma here and return home in the
same day. Within the seventy-five mile
radius already referred there are no few
er than sixty-six good towns, and these
and a progressive rural section, "together
with varied crops and Industries, make
Raleigh a very strong trade point, offer
ing exceptional business opportunities.
Great Power Plant.
Raleigh is the electric power center of
all the eastern half Of North Carolina,
and it has the distinction of obtaining Its
hydro-electric power from three streams,
the Yadkin, the Cape Fear, and the Neuse
Rivers, no other place in the country
getting power frem three sources. The
water-power is supplemented by one of
the most modern local steam power auxil
iary plants In the country, so that even
in case of extraordinary low water In all
the streams there will be no failure to
furnish power. This feature Is extreme
ly important, to manufacturers particu
larly, insuring steady .power. Raleigh Is
able to furnish 0,000 horsepower, the in
vestment in plant, transmission line. Ac
being over J6.OOO.O0O. From -this city go
out transmission wires to Durham.. Hen
derson. Oxford, Goldsboro, FayettevIIle,
&c The longest line bringing power Into
the city is that from the Yadkin River at
Blewetts Falls, eighty-eight miles distant,
100.000 volts coming from this one source
Into the great transformer substation of
the Carolina Power and Light Company,
where there Is the most modern installa
tion in the entire country. Many new
electrical Inventions are Installed In this
for the first time. Including open-air
transformers, &c All of Raleigh's In'
dustrlal plants are electrically operated.
Raleigh has a very complete trolley sys
tem, fifteen miles In length, and all the
streets .on which cars run are sprinkled
by means of an electric sprinkler. The
principal streets are paved with asphalt
or belglan block and the city" requires all
sidewalks to be granolithic.' The city Is
sewered. Its -water supply comes from a
email but' free-flowing stream, with a wa
tershed largely covered with original 'for-'
est and remancamy tree from pollution,1
the plant having a pumping capacity of
over 5,000,000 gallons dally. The gas plant
supplies annually 40,000,000 feet The equip
ment of the water supply plant is -to' be
.doubled. -The city Is rated high-class
jby the fire Insurance underwriters, and
a motor system for the fire'- department
has been, Installed. The city. has con
tracted for an .abattoir and crematory.
f Stroner .BankiBflr Inttitatiofii.
Raleigh's banking facilities show Us
stability and strong reserve power as a
community.- This was evidenced by the
fact that during the great panic of 1907
1908 the Raleigh banks did business 'as
usual and Issued no script. There are
eight banks." with a " total of deposits
amounting to 810,000.000.. The banking
growth is Illustrated most handsomely .by.
the fact that there are at present under
construction three costly buildings for
three "of these, the Raleigh Banking and
Trust Company, the Citizens National,
and the Commercial National, two of these
being of steel and the third of. limestone.

The remarkable extent of the building
development at Raleigh during the past
two years has attracted attention in
many sections of the country, and It has
been' ascertained by careful Inquiry that
no place of anything like Raleigh's pop
ulation anywhere east of the Mississippi
Is growing so rapidly. Last year the
new construction reached the handsome
figure. of $1.46,000. while this year It ex
ceeds 82,400,000. The variety of the con

shows comprehensive growth. There are
no poor structures, but the buildings are
of fine type in all their various classes.
