Boundless Wealth and Com?
mercial Possibilities
No section hi this broad land
of ours has had tho advances in
values that tho country Btir>
rounding Big Stone Cap ha- on
joyed in the last few year-, nor
is there a section that i- so like?
ly to have a further advance
Now York City claims for it
ronlty values an advance of two
hundred per Conl in the last de
Cade. In the conjested business
distriel t Iiis is t rue ; but what
about the values of eoal laud
surrounding this wond?rfiil liltlu
city of ours? In issu thousands
of acres of laud Were bought for
a dollar per acre, ten years later
these same land- wer - held at a
hundred dollars per acre, it ml to?
day they cannot be bought for
four hundred dollar- per acre.
As the worth of these wonderful
deposits become known we will
see these values multiplied
again.
The owners of those lands are
full well alive to (he high coking
qualities of their eoal beds, and
already around Big Stone flap
four thousand ovens give forth
their daily yield lb the iron
world.
(inly a short distance behind
the coal fields come timber. The
virgin forests that surround Big
Stone Gap are being bought up
by the investing world, ami Ilm
clear headed financier, no mat
tor how astudo ho may he in the
financial world or in the fields
of commerce, could he possibly
leave n greater heritage than
that of coal and timber lauds in
this section.
Who can look at the report of
tho National Conservation Com?
mittee and doubt that iron ore
is i.of the host investments in
the world today. This rcporj
shows us that in 1S70 every man
used ISO pounds of iron ore, in
11)07 the consumption was |!MI
pounds per capita, and today tho
consumption has increased l Bis
per l ent since IS7U.
No wonder we fool rieh here
in this beautiful valley of ours,
bounded on one side by eoal,
and on the other by iron ore, and
on all sides by timber. No where
in the United States can iron be
made as cheaply. for from the
coke OVOUS cati In- had a twenty
live conl rate of freight : 10 per
cent iron ore be had on a 20 Cetil
rate, and limestone at the very
door of the furnace. Wo have
from this point a much lower
freight rate on iron that from
Birmingham.
Thousands of tons of food,
supplies, etc., for the mine and
miner geographically (low
through this city, which makes
it a veritable commercial center.
Nature has surrounded Big
Stone tiap with resources that
gives us a bank account such as
no other sect ion of the United
States can boast of.
Man ha- contributed three
railroads, which open our mark?
ets to the world.
