The Company owns the Famous Ore Hill Property, in Chatham Co., N. C, that has been noted as an iron prop erty for more than a century. Ores from it were used in the manufacture of iron during the Revolutionary war. During the late civil war the Confederate Government selected this locality as the site of large iron and ordinance works, because of the exceptionally liigh Grade of its Ores. The lack of railroad facilities has made impossible, hitherto, the profitable utilization of these ores on any large scale. The locality is now, however, made accessible by the Cape Fear and Yadkin aney nanroaa, wmcn passes through the property. Some of the most noted iron men in America have examined and reported on these ores, and so far as the directors of this company know, there has never been an expert report on it that was not highly favorable. Prof. Chas. D. Wilber, inspec or of mines and mineral lands, formerly State Geologist of Illi nois and mining expert for the Northern Pacific R. R., visited Ore Hill 'n 1884. Extracts from his report and the opinions of Dr. E. Emmons, formerly State Geologist of North Carolina; Prof. W. C. Kerr, State Geologist: Prof. F. A. Genth. of Phila delphia; S. A. Richards, formerly Superintendent of the Joliet Steel Company; Mr. Thomas Graham, a prominent iron manu facturer of Philadelphia, and others, are published in the Com pany's prospectus. The "Manufacturer's Record," of Baltimore, having learned of the proposed organization of this company, investigated, on its own account, the Ore Hill Tract. The report of the ex pert, Mr. Thomas P. Williams, M. E., is also given in the prospectus. The company recently employed Mr. Frederick H. Smllh, of Baltimore, a noted mining engineer and mineralogist, to ex amine the property. His report confirmed all that had been claimed, and he advised the company to build the furnaces. Mr. Smith is a man of such eminence in his profession that it would be superfluous to make any mention of the value of his report. He is a member of the American Society of Civil En gineers, a member of the American Institute or Mining En gineers. Coke for the furnaces will be brought from Pocahontas, 245 miles, by the Norfolk & Western and Cape Fear & Valley Railroads, which will connect at the State line near Mount Airy, N. C. In the organization of the company the projectors Jiad in view: First The building of furnaces for the manufacture of iron and steel and ultimately the building of rolling mills and other industries for the utilization of the product of the furnaces. Second The acquisition of a considerable area of land around the locality that might be selected as the site of the furnaces, in order that the company might itself enioy the re sults of its own work, by getting the benefit of the increase in real estate values that would follow the establishment of fur naces and other industries. Third The inauguration of a general development and town-building enterprise, starting with an attempt to secure the location on its property, of iron, wood, textile and other industries, thus bringing together an aggregation of factories and stores, and a continually increasing population, with the resulting need for land for business and resident purposes.

Before announcing its purpose, the Company, through its agents, secured options on about 2,500 acres of very desirable property adjacent to Greensboro, some of it being within the corporate limits, and the whole of it being in a solid body. About 1,500 acres have already been purchased, and the remainder is being taken up as the options expire. The whole of it has been secured at an average price of 35.00 an acre.

This is purely a North Carolina industry, and there is no reason why the State cannot become one of the great iron producers of the country. People of North Carolina I Look at what your sister States are doing. You can do as well, if not better, if you will only have confidence in what you have got. Subscribe liberally to the stock and trust the men who are at the head of the Company. Their names alone is a sufficient guarantee as to the reliability and successful management; this, also, backed by the foster ing interests of the Cape Fear & Yadkin Valley, and Richmond & Danville Railroads. THE CAPITAL STOCK OF THE COMPANY IS $1,000,000. Large subscriptions have already been received at par. None of the stock will be sold at less than par. The proceeds will 20 into the Treasury, to be used for development purposes, with a view to making valuable the company lands, and be paid to the shareholder in pro-rata dividends. This is better and surer for the shareholders than to sell the stock at less than par, give away a town'lot with it and thus create a wild-cat excitement in drawing for the lots. The lots will be sold for the Company's Treasury, and the proceeds go to developments, encouraging manufactories to locate and paying dividends.
