Another Tobacco Fair will be held in Winston next. Fall. This was the enthusiastic and unanimous dri-ion of the Tonrci Fair Association, at last week Wed ndny night' meeting Pre.-irtt-nt G'rrell presided and ex plained that th o'-jrf-t of the met ing was to hear a report from the Ex ecutive Cuoim ttee and to consider the subject of holding a Fair next year. REPORT OF EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Mr G A F-illin, Chairman of the Ex eouiive Uommit.tee, in response to the call for a report, said the rep' rt was very elaborate and that t.all pr-senthad I h r,' it oif I ne air iteir seen it, referring to t He called up'in the Secretary to pre sent, the nVures Mr Wt ob stated that he did' not haw with him a d'-tail-'d stati-ru'if., hut it appeared upon the Trf-a-urfr's books winch wt r- ipn to the iu-p-c- tor. rail. He placed I he receipts at $1.964 25 and the disr ursenjeni s at lti5S44. leaving a little m re than $300 in i he trea-urv. On motion of Mr. W. B P llard, a vote thanks for efficient performance of duty aud congratulations up m hav ing balauce in the treasury were teniiereo toe Executive fjmmittee PERMANENCY CONSIDERED The quentiou of the per manency of the Fiir was n xt considered Maj T J Brown said he was very anxious to see the F-iir continued and thought it sboUid be determined to have it next year Perhaps it would uot be rieL to say it wu d be perma nent. Everything siiou d be free, as it was this year. As long as this is done it will be a success. Lt's hae another Fair next year and have it free, said the Major Capt S E. Allen was decidd!y in favor of making the Fair permanent, and at lea-i if saying it wou d be held MX1., year One great rer-Uit of the Fair is that it has knit i ur people closer together. He thought the Fair should oe free Mr, C. B. Watson said he hadn't had but one pinion since he saw the ex hibit ana bought we ought at least to have the Fair anoth-r ear, and for many reasons If we don't some of our neighbors will Only a small pro portion of the patrons ot this market vUited the Fair this year and there will be five next year to one this year Those who were here went away with more good will than they had ever felt before, and good will is one of the things we Deed We ought to have t he Fair another year, and have it un derstood at once, and have it on a much grander scale During the Fair was the first time the tobacco pio ducer and the tobicco manufacturer had been brought face to face. Keep it up and show the farmer that bis success depends upon the success of this community. We should secure excursion trains next year and there will be ten thousand people brought here by rail. Mr W B. Pollard moved that the Piedmont Tobacco Fair Association be organized for one year. Mr. T L Vaughn thought there was an obstacle id the way of organizing for oDly one year. The preseut build iugs will not be. sufficient to accom modate the next Fair aod the Ahso- ciatioo would haroly feel justified in making the r quired enlargement for one ear only. Mr. M D Bailey secooded Mr. P 1 lard's motion and thought there would be do trouble along the line intimated by Mr. Vaughn. If necessary, booths may be erected upon the streets. fair next year. Mr Pollard changed his motion so as to make the term of the Fair in definite and let next year's efit irt de termine whe'.her or not it will be permanent.
