ASHEVIU.E. i88o-i8t)o. THK WONDKKFl'l. KKCOKIt OF A UKCAUK, Annual Report of lite frtptltlt-iil of the ANhevlllc Hoard of Trade. At the nnnual meeting of the Ashcville Hoard of Trade 1 think it proper that a report be made on the business of the city nt the present lime, its prosiects for the future, ami in doing so, view it in it relations to the past, thus instituting a comparison between its condition in 1SH0 with what it is now at the la-gin-niiigof ISilO. With this object in view. I commenced a lew weeks ago to collect mailt r for this report, intending to confine myscll lo n brief review of ihe mercantile inter ests of the city, as illustrated by the busi ness of the past year. Hut as I advanced in the collection of facts and statistics so much sprang up liefore me, suggested by the original subject of investigation, thai t felt it to he a duty as well as a pleasure to embrace other topics proving what a jjrand exhibit we could make of the de velopments ot the city in all its relations to population, enterprise and achieve ments within the past ten years. The statistics presented have been compiled with great care, and are iti proxiniHtely accurate. It has been a widely connived, but assuredly an erroneous impression, that Ashcville is purely n health and pleasure res--rt. To that feature 'I offer no dissent. It deserves all that is said ol it in that regard, and year by year it iidds largely lo its seekers alter health und pleasure. Hut to the charms of cli mHtenud scenery we add unsurpassed inducements to the investor, the manu facturer, the artisan, the merchant, und all seeking homes, either for pleasure or profit. For the proof: Ten years ago Ashcville contained a population of 2,610. To-day she has a population of l'.'.noo. In 1HH0 the assessed value of the prop erty in the city was J'.HH.i.'S. To-day it is $.3U:t.2J. nil increase of iioo -r cent, in ten vrars. In 1HK0 the mercantile business amounted to about $.iiO,iiilo. The to tal business of the city for the year IMS!) amounted to f.tlotl.min.ll. The increase of business in 1 "Ml over the business of 1 HKK was 'J5 ierceiit. In I MHO there were sold on the Ashevillr tobacco market I.'.h.oihi pounds of leaf! 'cwell lire alarm system, and also n tohnceo for which was paid $12,000. At j ulephone system. the close of the tobacco year ending Sip-1 There are two daily newspaicr. be temlierl.lHM'l, there had been sold sides six wkly and one monthly. 17N,n;tH pounds, for whicn was paid "ur railroad system connects us speed .f22.7!i.2. I am informed by the see. ''' vvith "f the umiiiry reliirv of the Tobacco Association that I with double daily trains. It may Ik thesaleslrom thelslof Septemlier,SMtl,ituted lure that in our imputation to the present time show an increase of ulxiut 20 jwr cent, over nny previous year for the same length of tune. The real estate transactions for the past vear amounted to $Klti,oilil. And this bus been done without the influence of a boom, but in the natural course of prog ress, healthy and stable. In this the large pun-liases ot Mr. Ceo. Vnndcrbilt in the vicinity of Asheville are not included, Mr, Vatiderbilt on his visits to Asheville saw how he could judiciously employ his money und indulge his tastes by getting possession of und adorning large tracts of land, embodying every variety utul fentxre of natural beauty. He acitiired on the south side of the Swnuunnon river mid along the French Hroad river about 0,000 acres, for which it is estimated he paid hull a million dollars. He is now ettgiiKcil in the dweloping of his plans, building costly residences, outbuildings, farm houses, stables, etc., laying out ex tensive roads and drives, planting or chimin, forming plnutntionsof evergreens nnd other trees, He has employed in that work to-day about ,100 hands und fifty teams. I mention this more fully because the example of Mr, Vnndcrbilt may not he lust upon others, nnd because hislnrge purchases have not taken up all the eligi ble locations in the vicinity of Asheville, Asindicatingthe steady and continuous growth of the city, I will state that dur ing the year 18H0 there were erected here 184 building at a cost of $fi2H,H00. There are fifteen manufacturing nnd lumber t'Tttulilislmimts within the city limits, writh an UKKrcKiilc capital of $800,000, doing an annual business of $l,100,0ao.' AniuiiK these are the C. h. Graham AMuniifacturiu); corapauv'smills, emploviaK -'r0 hands and running 2li0 looms anil O.llMI spindles, the output bviiiK plaidb, nii),'l';iiii8, sheeting, elc. The Abeville l-'urtiiturr St Lumber com pany are employing about ninety hands and cleaned in nmkiuR out of the line natural woods elcRUUt and durable fur ture which has already received a large lemand at borne and abroad; The Ashcville Milling company is mak ing on n very large scale very HUierior patent roller process Hour and all other products of a flouring mill; The Asheville Tobacco Works manu facture line chewing ami smoking to bacco ; An Ice Factory is supplying all local demands and the summer 'viinW ol the neighboring towns; A Shoe Factory employingaliout eighty hands making all varieties of shoes and drcady securing a large and widely ex tended patronage; The Dcmcns Manufactory of all kinds of lumber, ausli, lihmls, store lixtuns and making a specialty in the working of iinrd woods; The French llroad Lumber company with steam saw mill, dealers in all kinds iiflumlier, employing about fifty hands; The Ashcville Manufacturing nud Lum ber company engaged ill the same busi ness. To these may lie added a soda water and bottling establishment, three large tobacco sale warehouses, a numlicr of tobacco priie houses, and several sash and blind factories. The banking canital of the city in round numbers is three hun dred and twenty-two thousand dollars. Capital on deposit amounts lo about n half million dollars. There are in the city eight hotels and twenty-seven board- iiu houses, some I the hotel being ot such n character ns to have achieved national reputation. Thev have pro vided excellently for the forty thousand visitors w ho came lo Ashe ille during ihrpnsiycar. Asa new feature in the movement of travel I will state that these hotels and boarding houses arc now tilled with slraiigtrs, from al' pans if the country, proof that Ashcville has a reputation as a winter, as well as a summer resort. There is here probably the best water supply in the Tinted Stales. There is a complete system of sewerage, securing cleanliness and health to every street and lot in the city .

There arc two systems of electric lighting, the arc and incandescent, by which the streets are lighted and also business houses, public buildings and private dwellings. In ad dition to these there nrrgns worklii.h hare largely in such uses. There are lliree graded schools for white pupils and one lor colored pupils, 'diuatiiig altogether twelve hundred children. There are moreover two male academics, two female colleges, one fe male high school ami one theological hIkhiI. There hit sixteen churches lor all de nominations and laitli races, one public library, three club houses, and a V. M. C. Association. There are two fire companies and a are included about two thousand residents of Northern and foieign birth, the latter Virg chiefly Fnglish and Scotch. The city has ttdcbl ol$S o,0o0iu water works and sewer bonds bearing N per cent interest. There are one hundred and forty-lour business houses in the city ; and in this connection I will state that last year there were only two failures, find those for small amounts. This is liiglilvcrrditahlr to the good business judgment nnd high intelligence of our merchants, and it pre sents n record unsurpassed by any town of similar si.e m the whole country. The State, county, city nnd school tax is $1.7.1 per a n nu in oiillic$loo,oo worth of proH-rty. Theiissessinetit of properly is about 00 r cent, of the act mil value. A city ordinance passed about three years ago exempts Irotn taxation for live years all mnmimcturiiig establishments having u capital of jri.liiiil.oo and over. The business outlook for the current year is very bright, nnd promises to be of unusual activity. Several large real es tate transactions nre now being negoti ated, which will involve large exwndl- lur. of money in improvements, The maniilacturing business of the city- is enlarging rapidly, and I make the pre diction that within the next ten ycurs Asheville wilt lie the largest hard wood manufacturing city In the South. lh-. C. I). Smith, the well-known scientist of Mncon county, stated that Western I North Carolina contained the hard wood in which the world is to lie supplied in the next fifty years. With one exception North Carolina has the largest iereentage of forest area of any of the Southern States, that area in ucres being ."'.! of the whole, and this (icrcentagc is greater in Western North Carolina than in any other part of the State. It abounds in that most valuable timber poplar, now growing so greatly in favor in the North ern markets, and also in oak, hickory, black walnut, ash, cherry, locust, pine, etc. I have thus presented asbrietly hsohiUI be done, in the time iermitted me, an outline of the chief interests of our city, but not enough to do the subject the full justice it merits, duo.
