committee appointed to draw up
ordinances and regulations in regard
to sanitation. According to Darlia-

it takes a presiding officer fifteen or
more years to lenra this common
rule of practice how much longer
should Hustling Henderson wait for
him to learn? Hut what boots it if
the mayor of our progressive town
should learn such rules, when one of
the commissioners says openly and
in public official meeting that he has
been on the board for five years and
that he has never seen anythingdone
according to law and that on the
motion pending he was opposed to
the legiuning of doing anything ac
cording to law. I am behind these
statements and my name is signed
to them. If I am wrong, say so. But

I am of the opinion that the intel

There Is a Difference.
The Henderson Gold Leaf realizes
that there is a difference between
town boosting and boasting about a
town, and urges that the -boasters be
converted into boosters. Every citi
zen should be proud of his town or
city, should be familiar with its re
sources and business and its strong
points in every particular and should
always be ready to talk about
things intelligently and convincingly;
we can afford to have one as well us but boosting often degenerates into
this one or that one. or two-thirdsof empty boasting and ttiis injures in

Hie building of the Carolina, Clinch
field & Ohio Railroad has an impor
tant bearing upon the interests of
the Seaboard Air Line Railway. As
is "a well known fact these two great
roads are under the same manage
ment and control, the majority of
the stock in- both corporations being
dominated by Thomas P. Ryan and
associates, millionaire capitalists of
New York." With the Clinchfield
opening up the richest and most ex
tensive coal fields in the world, the
Seaboard is destined to become the
greatest coal carrying road in Amer
ica, is the prediction made.
The Clinchfield railroad taps the
famous "Clinchfield" coal district, be
lieved to be one of the richest coal
fields in existence, and competent
geologists estimate that it will yield
a thousand car loads of coal a day
for a thousand years. According to
the reports of experts this district
contains something like three hun
dred million cars of bituminous coal,
and most of this fuel underlies the
300,000 acre tract of coal land
owned by the Clinchfield Coal Cor
poration, an allied corporation of
the Carolina, Clinchfield & Ohio Rail
It is to develop this vast and inex
haustible fuel supply and furnish it
to the world that the Clinchfield road
was built primarily. But the scheme
of development is not to stop with
that. The proraotors have other
and more far reaching objects in
At the time of the building of the
Clinchfield road there appeared in the
Richmond Times-Dispatch an article
from which the following excerpt is
made, and which may not be without
interest at this time:
"Tbomas Fortune Ryan and his asso
ciates 111 the world of nuance nave on

coal field in A'irginia and connecting it

lina. Clinchfield & Ohio.
"Tho road crosses the Southern Rail
way line at Johnson City, runs soth
up the valley of the Chucky river, across
the pip of the Blue Ridge mountains
and connects with the Seaboard Air
Line ai Bostic, N. C, from which point
all Southern seaports are within easy
haulingdi-tance, Wilmington and South
port, N .C.. and Charleston, S. C, being
th chief outlets.
"The Carolina, Clinchfield & Ohio Rail
road will open up by its main line and
spur tracks the richest and most exten
sive coal fields in the world, and it is said
the Seaboard Air Line will lead all the
roads of America as a coaler.
"It is the purpose of Mr. Ryan and his
associates to bring together the coal
fields of A'irginia, Tennessee, NVest Arir
ginia and Kentucky with the Atlantic
coast and the Great Lakes. Connection
with the Seaboard Air Line being com
pleted, the plan is to extend the road
north to the Great Lakes by way of the
