Southin Roeing tho marvelous blessings
of this section fully' utilized nnd developed,
it also desires tho prosperity of tho whole

industries that have nourished in tho
North, which must decrease through the
active competition that is being developed
in tho South, whero naluru h.is brought
together such u combination of advantages
as can be louud now here else on this con

litnirtl has pointed out the inevitable fact
that Ihe Booth is to control tho iron trado
of this country, and that many fur
naces in the North, unublo by rea
son of their location to compete
with the price at which iron can la.
made in the Smith must be abandoned.
These truths are trowing more and mure
plain every day, and while the well
located furnaces of the North may hold
their own, vet they will hardly l.e able to
show any great incieam in th extent of

them being unwilliug to give more than

the men are much agitated over the fact
that the bosses "persistently itmoro the

wiui some members of tho committee to
talk over tho prozram of tho naval demon
stration at tho celebration. As a result of
th- conference it is probable that tho navy
will bo represented on equal terms with
the army at the centorini nf. Thn ss.Dr.til
idea Is to invito Admiral l'ortor, the high
est officer in rank in tho navy, to tako
charge of tho naval forces, or. if lie should
not bo able to undertake tho duties of the
place, then Kenr Admiral Jouett, or some
other high officer mav bo reu nested to ns-
sumo charge. With this chungo in tho
program tlio aclivo co-operation of the
Navy Department will bo assured, and
every naval Vessel within easy re ich will
probably bo ordered lo New York to assist
in carrying out the program.
