LC Subject Headings:
Raleigh is a pleasant city of about 14,000 inhabitants, about equally divided between the white and colored races.
The city is well laid off with broad streets, well shaded by elms, maples and oaks, and contains many comfortable and handsome dwelling houses. The site of the city is on slightly rolling ground, more level than the surrounding country.
The State Capitol is within one block of the centre of the city, and is a handsome, massive structure three stories high, built of gray granite quarried at the southeast limit of the city.
Few places the size of Raleigh have as many handsome public buildings.
Raleigh is somewhat celebrated as an educational centre, there being located here two large female schools, one classical and high school for boys, two large normal institutes for the colored race, one of them, the Shaw University, being among the largest in the world, having on their grounds five large four-story brick, metal roof buildings; and the public graded schools, white and colored, six in number.
Visitors having time should see the following places:
MAIN BUILDING.--THE NORTH CAROLINA STATE EXPOSITION OPENS OCTOBER 1ST, CLOSES OCTOBER 28TH, 1884.
Office of the North Carolina State Exposition, RALEIGH, N. C., June 19th, 1884.
At a recent meeting of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the North Carolina State Exposition the following resolution was offered and unanimously adopted, and according to instructions of the Committee it is herewith presented:
"Resolved, That the President and Secretary be authorized to make an appeal to the people of the State, stating that the Exposition had grown beyond all expectation, and that the buildings, though large, are not sufficient; that more buildings are needed, and that to erect them we need more help."
In obedience with the above resolution, the President and Secretary desire to make the following statement.
While the Exposition Company was organized with the provision that the stock should not exceed $50,000, the Company have never been able to secure within the State more than $18,500 in stock subscription.
It has been necessary to erect one large main building, size 336x336 feet, at a cost of over $12,000. In addition we have the machinery shed, grand stand and floral hall of the Agricultural Society. With all these we need additional space, for the prospect now promises more than even the most sanguine supporters of the enterprise had reason to expect or hope. It is necessary to erect buildings to represent saw-mills, wood-working machinery of various kinds, and also other buildings to display ladies' work, &c. The amount of funds in hand do not at present warrant an outlay sufficient to cover these buildings, and in order that every branch of industry and all resources of our State may be fully exhibited, we most earnestly appeal to the patriotic and generous citizens of the State to aid the Exposition Company by increasing the stock subscriptions so that we can raise at least $5,000 in addition to the stock already subscribed for.
The shares of stock are $25 each, with no individual liability attached to the stockholders. We request all who are willing to aid us in this work to remit the amount of their subscriptions to our Treasurer, MR. LEO D. HEARTT Raleigh, N. C., and immediately upon receipt of the same a certificate for a corresponding number of shares will be issued.
H. E. FRIES, Secretary.
W. S. PRIMROSE, PRESIDENT.
In presenting this pamphlet to the public we wish to say that it has never been the purpose of the North Carolina State Exposition Company to attempt, a display equal to the display made at Atlanta or Louisville. The purpose of the organization of the Company was to display the products and resources of our State, and we shall endeavor to make this the prominent feature. We desire also to have represented such machinery and implements as would interest and instruct our people, and encourage more rapid development of our resources and more improved methods of agriculture. The officers have found that there is a tendency to patronize such an Exposition, and they have already received so many applications for space that they have prepared, and herewith submit, general rules and classifications for exhibitors; giving preference to County, State, Railroad and Machinery exhibits.
It is a gratifying fact to be able to present to the people of the State the favorable rates by the various Railroad and Steamship companies. The following Railroads in North Carolina have granted the following:
"By a prepayment of the freight and a certificate from our Exposition Company that the goods were exhibited, the goods will be returned to the shipping point free of cost, and the amount prepaid will be refunded."
Raleigh & Augusta, Raleigh & Gaston, Carolina Central, Richmond & Danville, Atlanta & Charlotte Air-Line, Milton & Sutherlin Narrow Guage, the North Carolina, the Western North Carolina, the North Western North Carolina, Ducktown Branch, the State University, Cape Fear& Yadkin Valley, Atlantic Coast Line, and Albemarle & Raleigh.
The following Railroad and Steamship Companies have given us the same favorable rates as were given to the Atlanta Exposition, viz:
"All goods will be transported to the Exposition at usual rates, and all such articles as are brought by this line will, upon the presentation of the freight bill, or a copy of the same be returned free."
PLAN OF EXPOSITION GROUNDS.
Richmond & Danville, the Merchants' and Miners' Transportation Co., Norfolk & Baltimore Steam Packet Co., Old Dominion Steamship Co., Seaboard & Roanoke Railroad Co., N. Y. West Shore & Buffalo Railway Co., Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Co., Boston & Albany Railway Co., and Baltimore & Ohio Railway Co.
We herewith present a list of combinations formed by counties which will make collective exhibits, and also a list of such counties as will be represented by appropriation or by individual effort, viz:
The following counties have combined themselves into what will be known as the "Albemarle Section": Currituck, Camden, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Chowan, Washington, Tyrrell, Dare, Hyde, Bertie, Martin, Gates, Hertford.
The following have formed a combination which will be represented as the "New Berne Association": Craven, Pamlico, Onslow, Jones, Carteret.
The following have made appropriations for county exhibits: Chatham Beaufort, Rockingham, Forsyth, Caswell, New Hanover, Cleveland, Durham, Halifax, Orange, Randolph, Montgomery, Mitchell, Pitt, Wake, Warren, Davidson, Guilford, Franklin, Robeson, Buncombe, Davie, Caldwell, Stokes, Macon, Catawba, Ashe, Lincoln, Watauga, Johnston.
The following counties will be represented through individual effort: Edgecombe, Moore, Vance, Lenoir, Richmond, Columbus, Pender Harnett, Sampson.
A few privileges for restaurants, &c., will be rented for the entire time of the Exposition--October 1st to October 28th. The Executive Committee have ordered that no spirituous liquors shall be sold on the grounds; nor will any side-shows,
of an immoral or objectionable character, or any species of gambling be permitted.
Persons wishing to engage privileges for keeping dining saloons, cigar stands, soda and mineral water stands, privileges for selling beer, stands for sale of trinkets, &c., space for photographic tents, &c., &c., should be addressed to the Secretary, or Mr. Nichols, Raleigh, N. C., stating exactly what privileges are wanted, when a diagram of the grounds will be sent, stating upon what terms the application will be received.
Article XIII of Rules and Information for Exhibitors reads as follows:
" All exhibits must be entered at the office of the Chief of Department of Installation, and before unpacking or arranging articles, the permit for space must be endorsed by the Chief of the Department."
Several large and commodious sheds will be devoted to displays of agricultural implements and agricultural machinery. In order that the machinery may be seen in actual operation we have planted quite a portion of the ground in clover. Mr. Upchurch, the Chief of this Department, will be most happy to aid the Plow manufacturers in representing the efficient work of their Plows in this field. After the sod is turned he respectfully invites Harrow manufacturers to represent their machines in actual use, and after that a most cordial invitation is extended to the various Drill manufacturers, granting them the privilege of drilling in any kind of grain that they may prefer--either wheat, oats or rye. (See pages 2 and 3).
Board can be procured at private houses during the Exposition from $1.00 to $2.00 per day, and at the hotels from $1.50 to $2.50 per day.
The Hackmen agree to charge a uniform rate for transporting persons from the North Carolina R. R. depot, and from the Raleigh & Gaston R. R. depot, to all points in this city, 25 cents each.
Baggage free, except when in excess of amount allowed by the railroads.
From any point within the city limits to the Exposition grounds, 25 cents for each person in Jerseys and Spring Wagons; 50 cents for each person in Carriages and Omi-buses.
The Draymen have agreed to charge a uniform rate on all goods conveyed from the North Carolina R. R. depot and from the Raleigh & Gaston R. R. depot to the Exposition grounds; 50 cents for each one-horse load, and $1.00 for each two-horse load.
All buildings on the grounds will be properly insured, and an efficient police force will be on duty night and day for the protection of property and maintainance of order.
The railroad fare to the grounds will be 10 cents for each person.
The following days have been set apart for special purposes:

N. B.--In making the above classification we are indebted to the classifications furnished us by the World Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition to be held at New Orleans and to the Industrial Exposition which will be held in Cincinnati in September next.
(The following are based upon the rules adopted by the International Cotton Exposition at Atlanta, Ga., in 1881:)
I. Space for exhibition will be granted in the following buildings:
Main Building, and Machinery sheds; Central Hall, and Grand Stand. A special building will be erected for Educational and Ladies' Exhibits, provided sufficient funds can be raised.
II. The Main Building will contain County Exhibits, Exhibits by the State Board of Agricultural, Railroad Exhibits, Machinery, and such individual displays and exhibits as space will allow, including departments A, B, C & D.
Central Hall will contain Departments F, G & H, (including County Exhibits or Railroad Exhibits by special permission), Household Goods, Furniture, Tobaccos, Canned Goods, Wines, Textiles, &c.
Ladies and Educational Building will contain Paintings, Photographs, Engravings, Displays by Schools, Colleges and Seminaries, &c., including Departments J & K.
The Grand Stand will contain Minerals, Cooking and Heating Stoves, Wagons, Carriages, Hardware, Cutlery, Scientific, Apparatus, &c., including Departments E. and I.
III. The space granted an Exhibitor is available floor or ground space, exclusive of intervening passage between exhibits. It may be utilized in various ways as follows:
IV. All platforms, counters, or ornamental partitions, show-cases and appurtenances, must be erected at the expense of the exhibitor, in proper form or design. No particular form or design is prescribed for cases, counters, &c., but they must not exceed the following heights without special permission:
Show-cases, 15 feet above the floor; counters, 2 feet 6 inches above the floor, on the side next to the passage-way; and platforms, 1 foot above the floor.
V. In order to ensure the advantageous and satisfactory locations of the products, applicants desiring to erect show-cases counters or partitions, must furnish to this department a scale, drawing or tracing, showing clearly the elevation and ground plan of the same, and especially indicating the side of the cases intended to be open for inspection.
VI. Machinery in motion must be enclosed in railings of uniform height of 2 feet 6 inches. Exhibitors of other articles will have the privilege of placing railings of approved design around the space allotted to them. All such railings must not exceed the height of 2 feet 6 inches above the floor level, and may be attached to the case by projecting brackets or be supported by posts from the floor. In every instance the floor space granted includes the area embraced by the railing. The line of the railing will be placed upon the line of the passage-way, and no railing will be allowed to project beyond the case or the counter into the passage-way.
VII. Exhibitors desiring to display products pendant from the roof-trusses, must in each case obtain permission to that effect from the chief of the department of Installation.
No Exhibitor will be allowed to display products in such a manner as to obstruct the light or vistas through the avenues and aisles, or occasion any inconvenience, injury, or disadvantageously affect the display of other Exhibitors.
VIII. No signs will be allowed to project beyond the floor area of space allotted. The size of all signs will be subject to approval.
IX. The avenues and aisles and passage-ways remain under the control of the Exposition Company, and trophies, decorations, portals, fountains or other special Exhibits will not be permitted in them except by special permission. Each building will be divided into divisions (see accompanying floor plans), and each division will be divided into suitable section.
X. All Counties proposing make Exhibits are requested to make application before July 21st and Counties which do not apply before July 21st will have to take such space as may then be left. Collectors of County Exhibits are requested to exclude from their County Exhibits all displays that are purely personal in their character.
XI. Shafting will be hung in the Main Building over the Western Aisle in West Division, and will extend in two divisions the entire length of the west side. The portion of shafting from the centre south will run 150 revolutions per minute, and the portion from the centre north will run 200 revolutions per minute. Shafting varies in size and dimensions towards the ends. Exhibitors are requested to state with the number of horse-powers required to operate each machine.
XII. Exhibitors' business cards, circulars and samples may be placed within, or distributed from, the exhibitor's space; but loud talking in connection with such distribution is prohibited and will not be allowed.
XIII. Exhibits must be entered at the office of the Chief of the Department of Installation, and before unpacking or arranging articles the permit for space must be endorsed by the Chief of the Department.
XIV. All articles arriving at the doors of the building by rail, wagon, or otherwise, will be received by the Department of Installation and delivered on the space granted. Each Exhibitor will then be expected to unpack and arrange his goods without delay.
XV. All Exhibits must be in position and finally arranged not later than September 27. If the Secretary does not receive a bill of lading, with notice of shipment, on or before September 24th, it will be supposed that the Exhibitor is prevented from coming to the Exposition, and the space allotted to such Exhibitor will be forfeited and revert to the Secretary for re-assignment.
XVI. All Exhibitors are required to prepay freight, and goods with freight prepaid will be taken charge of by the Department of Installation and be deposited in the allotted space. Whenever drayage is necessary, a uniform rate will be charged as follows:
Single dray from N. C. R. R. 50 cents per load, and from the Raleigh & Augusta R. R. 50 cents per load.
Double dray, from the N. C. R. R. $1.00 per load, and a double dray from the Raleigh & Augusta R. R. $1.00.
After goods are deposited, the Exhibitor is expected to arrange his goods as per par. XIV. All applications for space must be directed to the Secretary of the North Carolina State Exposition, Raleigh, N. C.
Should circumstances demand a change in these rules, we reserve the right to alter or amend the same.
According to Sections 2217 and 2218 of the Code, it is necessary for the North Carolina, Agricultural Society to offer annual premiums. This Year by common agreement these premiums will be awarded on the Exposition grounds during the Exposition, and we herewith present, in the name of the North Carolina Agricultural Society, the most valuable list ever offered to the people of this State.
All entries must be made by letter, or at the Secretary's office, not later than October 20th, and be on the ground and in place on or before 10 A. M. of October 21st, 1884, when the judges will commence to make their awards; none can compete after this hour.
No one will be required to pay an entrance fee, but in all cases the usual admission will be charged for all persons at the gates.
The same freight rates as are given on articles to the Exposition will apply to entries or competition in this premium list.
Owners of cattle, exhibited for competition as registered cattle, must be prepared to prove by a certificate of entry or transfer that their cattle have been duly entered in the recognized herd-books of the various cattle clubs, of breeds to which they belong, and also the date of dropping the animal.
Competitors for the last two premiums must bring properly certified and sworn statements of the yields of the cow for the week, month or year, not exceeding one year previous to time of entry, as they may be able to do.
The Judges will award premiums only to those animals deemed worthy of them, and not because there are none in competition in any of the classes. Any dissatisfaction with awards will be settled by the decision of the Chairman of the Committee of Awards, based upon the "scale of points."
The remaining Premiums on Cattle are offered by the N. C. State Exposition.
Exhibitors will be required to show No. of registration.
The following premiums are confined to animals owned by North Carolinians:
No entry for any premium will be allowed to compete for any premium in any other class.
The following premiums are confined to Animals owned, by North Carolinians.
No entry for any premium in class I will be allowed to compete for any premiums in any other class.
No entry for any premium in Class II will be allowed to compete for any premium in any other class.
If any of the following named materials are drawn from the County Exhibits, it is insisted upon by the authorities of the Exposition that enough material of each kind shall be on Exhibit by the county, so that the same shall be only partially depleted by the of the quantities named herein. On the day preceding the time for entries to be made, the several articles must be carried by the exhibitor to the place to be designated hereafter in one of the buildings on the Exposition grounds, where the proper officer of the North Carolina State Agricultural Society will be in readiness to receive entries of the same, and they shall remain in such place on exhibit until the awards for premiums are all made.
The Exposition Company will retain the first premium Butter and present it to the President of the United States as "The North Carolina Premium Butter. Award given to . . . . . . . . . . P. O. . . . . ."
Second premium Butter, and present it to the Governor of North Carolina as "The North Carolina Premium Butter. Award given to . . . . . . . . . . P. O. . . . . ."
For best exhibit made by any county of North Carolina consisting of Agricultural products, natural resources, etc., etc., as a distinctive County exhibit, . . . . . $100
The Exposition recommends to the County that gets the $100 premium to donate it, to the Oxford Orphan Asylum.
Wake county will not compete for the best County display.
Diplomas will be offered by the North Carolina Agricultural Society on the following articles, open to the world. Decision will be rendered on the superiority of the articles exhibited:
In view of the fact that the Colored Industrial Association is doing a good work for the Colored people of our State, and deserves a hearty support and all possible encouragement, it was resolved at the last meeting of the Board of Directors of the North Carolina State Exposition that this Association should have free space in the grounds and be permitted to offer the following premium list in conformity to their annual custom.
All entries for premiums shall be made on October 16th, and awards shall be made October 17th and 18th. These days shall be known as the Fair of the N. C. Industrial Association.
Special Notice.--The days for the encampment of the State Guard is fixed for October 1st and 2d. It is probable that quite a number of Bands will accompany the various companies, and the following programme has been arranged:

GROUND PLAN--MAIN BUILDING--N. C. STATE EXPOSITION.
The NORTH CAROLINA STATE EXPOSITION will be held near the city of Raleigh, N. C., and will open October 1st and close October 28th, 1884.
Applications to space and all matters concerning Exhibits must be directed to the North Carolina State Exposition, Raleigh, N. C.
(a) Applications will be received at any time upon blanks furnished from this office. (b) Space will be granted to general Exhibitors on or after July 1st, 1884. (c) Space will be granted County and Railroad Exhibits on or before July 1st, 1884. [As our space is so limited Exhibitors are requested to make application not later than September 1st, 1884 and all articles are expected to be in place by September 21st, 1884.] (d) If the Society has no notice of the shipment of any exhibit by or before September 24th, the Exhibitor forfeits his space and entrance fee, and the space will revert to the Secretary for reassignment.
(a) Free space will be granted County displays, displays of Schools, Academies and college, Ladies' work and agricultural products. (b) Stockholders may be granted free space not exceeding 100 square feet, if the space is wanted to display products of factories or farms, or any exhibits tending to improve the industrial interest of the State. In no case can this space be transferred. Additional space may be granted when the Stockholders have subscribed for five or more shares of stock. (c) Residents of North Carolina who are not stockholders will be charged an entrance fee of $15 for space not exceeding 60 square feet, and if more space is desired we invite correspondence. (d) General Exhibitors will be charged $25 for space not exceeding 100 square feet. If space is required we invite correspondence. When an Exhibit demands the constant attention of a person, one such person will be admitted free. Such free pass can only be used by the person named thereon. Regular Entrance Fee 50 cents; Children 12 years of age and under, 25 cts.
When there is an entrance fee to be paid a check for the amount must in all cases accompany the application. Exhibitors can only consider their space secured when they hold our receipt for the entrance fee and a statement of the exact location of their exhibit.
Exhibitors must provide at their own cost all show cases, shelving, counters, fittings, &c., which they may require. All arrangements of articles and decoration must be in conformity with the general plan adopted by the Company. Special constructions of any kind within buildings or grounds can only be made upon the written approval of the President or Secretary.
We have made the floors sufficiently strong for all ordinary purposes. Exhibitors whose Exhibits require foundations of additional strength or solidity must prepare such foundations to their own expense.
The Exposition Company will take precaution for the safe preservation of all articles exhibited; but it will not in any way be responsible for loss or damage of any kind, or accident by fire or otherwise, however originating. Favorable facilities will be arranged by which Exhibitors may insure their goods.
Exhibitors may employ watchmen of their own choice to guard their goods. Appointments of such watchmen will be subject to the approval of the President or Secretary.
Exhibitors or such agents as they may designate shall be responsible for receiving, unpacking and arrangement of Exhibits, as well as for their removal at the close of the Exposition. The transportation, receiving, unpacking and arranging of articles for the Exposition will be at the expense of the Exhibitor.
The installation of heavy articles requiring foundations should be begun as soon as progress upon the building will permit. The general reception of machinery and other heavy exhibits will commence August 15th, and the other goods September 10th. Space not occupied by September 24th will revert to the secretary for re-assignment.
If no authorized person is at hand to receive goods on their arrival, and if freights on such goods are prepaid they will be taken to the Exposition building at the expense of the Exhibitor; otherwise they will remain at the Railroad station at the risk of whomsoever they may concern.
Sketches, Drawings, photographs, and other production of articles Exhibited will only be allowed upon the joint assent of the Exhibitor and the President or Secretary; but views of portions of the buildings may be made upon the sanction of the President or Secretary.
The removal of goods will not be permitted prior to the close of the Exposition. Immediately after the close of the Exposition, Exhibitors must procure permission from the Secretary to remove their goods, and must complete such removal before Nov. 20th, 1884. Goods then remaining will be removed and sold for expenses or otherwise disposed of as the President or Secretary may deem advisable.
Exhibitors will be allowed to sell goods manufactured on the grounds free; but Exhibitors who make Exhibits for the special purpose of selling goods will be charged 15 per cent on gross receipts; payment to be made to a properly authorized officer each day.
Each person who becomes an Exhibitor thereby acknowledges and undertakes to keep the rules and regulation, established for the government of the Exposition.
An official Catalogue will be published. The sale of Catalogues is reserved for the Exposition Company.
NOTE.--The Exposition Company reserves the right to alter or amend these rules and regulations whenever it may be deemed necessary for the interests of the Exposition.
