RRHI^ATORV REMARKS.



In presenting this their first number oi the Wilmington City Directory, the pub'ishers have
had to overcome the prejudices and dissatisfaction of the entire business community, because of the
very imperfect last issue and the consequent uncertainty and doubt created thereby in the minds
of the people as to what the character, correctness, and usefulness of the present edition might be.

The last (1894) Directory was an imperfectly compiled list of names, without business or
location— only the place of residence being given. In the general part of the present volume will
be found the name (arranged in strictly alphabetical order), the business, place of business, and
place of residence; co-partnerships, with names of individual members in parenthesis ; Incorpo-
rated Companies, with names of officers ; Churches, with pastors' names ; Schools, public or
private, with principal, and after such names as salesmen, clerks, and others holding official or
clerical positions, the place where or by whom employed. Following the general will be found
a complete Business Directory, classified alphabetically by business and name, and name after
business. Preceding the General Directory will be found much useful and interesting miscella-
neous matter pertaining to the State and City governments ; Banks, Insurance, and other Incorpo-
rated Companies; Secret Societies and Beneficial Orders; Churches, etc., etc.; also the Post
Offices of North Carolina and Virginia, names of streets and their description, and the 'Phone
Nos. of all the patrons of the Directory.

Appended will be found the number of names under each letter in the edition of 1894 and
the present one. It speaks for itself.

The above shows an increase of 2,862 names, or over 59 per cent In the new or recently-
grown cities of the country, the publishers use as low as 3 in multiplying the number of names in
the Directory to ascertain the p^>pulation ; in the old cities, S\ to 4J. Taking the smaller one, 3J,
as a multiplier, we would be given a population of 26,916— all of which we feel quite sure
Wilmington has.

In conclusion, we thank all who have assisted us in any way, and particularly those who,
by their generous patronage, have made the publication a possibility for the future.

Respectfully,

J. L. HILL PRINTING COMPANY. \

THE CITY OF WILMINGTON has u population of about 25,000. Tt is
situated on the Cape Kear river, twenty-live miles from its mouth,
and at the junction of the northwest an<l northeast branches. The har-
bor is commodious, and is a resort for vessels from all parts of the
world. A depth ot twenty-two feet on bar and in the river enables a class
of large vessels to come directly to the wharves and to take on full loads.

The exports are chieliy cotton, cotton goods, timber, lumber, naval stores,
and numerous miscellaneous articles. Wilmington ranks as the sixth cotton
port of the United States, and this product is shipped all over the world. In
addition to export and domestic shipments otherwise, over thirty-one foreign
steamships were engaged in 1896 in the transportation of cotton to European
ports, some of them carrying cargoes of 11,000 or 12,000 bales each. About
214,000 bales were handled on the Wilmington market in 1896.

There is a direct steamer line to New York, and a good business is done
by sailing vessels to all domestic ports. Considerable trade is also conducted
with the West Indies by sailing vessels and steamships. There are five railroad
lines reaching the city, besides a short line to the coast, which handles quanti-
ties of coast products.

Fish and game are abundant. There are two fine pleasure and health
resorts on the beach, reached by rail and steamer. This beach is said to be one
of the finest on eitber side of the continent.

The soil around Wilmington is most admirably adapted for truck farming,
for fruit cultivation and for stock and poultry raising. The soil is light and
loamy, with a strong, rich subsoil of clay, and every kind of vegetable, all the
small fruits, pears, peaches, plums, watermelons, &c., thrive and are profitably
grown. The strawberry business alone engages the attention of many farmers,
while potatoes, asparagus, lettuce, tomatoes, caulifiower, blackberries, whor-
tleberries, &c., furnish a source of large revenue to truckers. The season
being about two weeks ahead of Norfolk and following after the Florida crop
is exhausted, enables an advantageous shipment of products to Northern mar-
kets, with remunerative prices, while the home market afiPords a good base to
fall back upon when shipping becomes less profitable. There is first-class rail-
road service to Northern markets, express trains especially for this business
being run during the season.

The exceeding mildness of the winter, the cold weather not exceeding
two months in duration, makes expensive sheltering of stock unnecessary and
decreases to a minimum the time during which feeding from the barn is
required. Grazing is possible during the other ten months, and the native
grass (crab) furnishes good grazing and makes a fine hay. Raising of poultry
can also be made successful and lucrative.

The climate is unusually equable, the means being : For spring, 63.0° ;
summer, 78.3°; autumn, 64.0°; winter, 48.7°.

Malignant diseases are unknown. The death rate is abnormally low.

No city of the South offers better natural and acquired advantages
for men of energy and enterprise. Nothing is required but thrift to
control a large and profitable commerce, while an extensive and im-
portant section of country in the interior would easily be tributary

to its trade.
