HEW JOB FRUITING ROOMS*
With- pardonable pride, wo trust,
we wish to speak of the splendid new
quarters of The Intelligenoer Job
printing plant. This department has
been; conducted in the upstairs of the
bulddlng occupied by the newspaper,
but on account of the great growth
of this* department more commodious
quarters were needed. The new Wat
son-Vandlvor building, which la about

setting more room, and the entire
store ne>t door to the newspaper of

The job printing department of The
Intelligencer is us well equipped as
any in upper Carolina, ami in charge
of as competent a force of workmen,
all experts and skilled in their several
departments. Manager T. K. Hoper is
too well known to our readers to re
quire an introduction. Beginning a
few yeurs ago lie organized and built
up the Hoper Printing company, which
became known for the high class of
work turned out. The ?tune pains

Roper and eyer;* member of the force.
Those engaged In the Job depart

Thomm?, J. P Hamil, Henry Plckard,
Arthur Haynle, C. B. Fant, Louie Fant
and Roily Hopkins. The latter Is per
haps better known than any of the
members, for the reason that he
comes in contact with the public as
delivery boy. and running errands.
No more faithful worker exists than
Roily and he cannot help it it his hair
come in and see this department or
any other of our plant. It will be in
teresting to those who are not famil
iar with printing plants.
THE FIELD FOR THE SOUTH.
Some time ago Mr. J. B. Duke pro
posed a plan for cotton warehouses
in the south. We have heard that his
proposal was allowed to languish be
cause of the illness of the New York
financier associated with Mr. Duke.
It seems that now is the timo to re
vive that project and to revive it in
One feature ot it would be crippled
during the foreign war, for it was
proposed to have tho cotton certifi
cates accepted abroad just as cur
rency, but in these times nothing but
gold will do. However, there are oth
er features of the warehouse plan
which would be a great blessing if put
into effect at once.
The south just at this' time needs a
man such as Mr. Duko to take charge
of the selling of our southern made
textiles and famrics. He has the
means and the ability to organize a
force of salesmen that would cause
southern textile to supplant Gorman
and English in South American
states. The United States, thanks to
Mr. Wilson and Secretary Bryan, is in
very friendly relations now with
South American states, aud our man
ufactured products should easily find
a reception there which would estab
lish our trade for all time.
It does seem that the south could
grow and manufacture and ship cot
ton cheaper than it could be done
through Europe as a middle man. One
handicap has been the lack of mer
chant marine. Why could not a man
like Mr. Duko organize a company
and lease or purchase merchant ves
sels now lying idle In the ports of
other countries?and some flying for
eign QagB are lying idle in the ports
of the United States dodging the hos
tile warships riding all the seas of the
This Is a big undertaking but will
make tho south rich, independent and'
powerful, and the man who heads the
proposition will become the greatest
man in American commerce.
Mr. Duke has turned loose a lot of
money in the south that he has gath
ered from the four corners ot" the
earth, whither he has carried Ameri
can made cigarettes and smoking and
chewing tobacco. No doubt he could
be Interested In this proposition, for
it is no philanthropy, but u Kigali. Ic
commercial enterprise, such as he
likes to undertake. There may be
others who could put the proposition
through, but we mention Mr. Duke be
cause he has the meanB, he has the
vision, and he Is yet young and vig
Another reason we suggest Mr.
Duke as the proper man to undertake
this Is . because he has already. suc
ceeded so brilliantly In pushing his
own goods in China.
About five years ago, when the
Boxer uprising in China had been put
down and it had become possible/for
Americans to go into China, Mr. Duke
put a force of salesmen to.work there
and they, through our moderuu bus
iness methods, have caused Ameri

Recent pessimism has been the re

What this means may be inferred
when it is pointed out that the accu
mulations of the American people
are greater than those of any other
nation; that the wealth of the coun
try is growing at the rate of about
$7,000,000,000 a year, in season und
out, over u series of years, irrespec
tive of bad times, so-called, and pe
riods of expansion. No other nation
lias such a record as to gross wealth,
and with exist'ug conditions none
other is likely in the course of the
present century to rival It.

That there can be any holding back
of such unrivaled potentiality for
progress in the production of wealth
as It found here, especially in com
parison with other countries and peo
ple:', he says, is unthinkable. What
may have proved a temporary set
buck is but an incident, an excep
tional variation of a rule which, when
taken in connection with a decade or
?was probably less than that of
France, but today it is placed at
nearly $X0.OOO.00?.0O(). with an in
come of $10,000,000,000.
Thus, as a new country, by compar
ison, the United States has an an

than that of Great Britain, Germany
and France, combined, with an accu
mulated wealth far in excess of uny
other land, (liven the personal equa
tion, the progresslveness of the Anicr

dominating quality, it would hardly
seem that any moderate downward
dip in the curve of naiionai progress
as to production and prosperity could
call for more than cursory comment.
