Excerpt from Historical and Descriptive Review of the Industries of Dallas: 1884-5, Trade, Commerce and Manufactures

It is clearly evident from the wonderful development of the United States' resources, and the rapid increase of consumers in the country since the close of the civil war, that commerce and manufactures cannot longer be controlled in the interest of the few cities which have hitherto constituted the great centers and distributing points. The law of progression forbids the continuance of such monopolistic features, and the vastness of our territory, the immensity of our resources and their broadcast distribution, the remarkable enterprise of our people and the general development of the country at large, must naturally bring about the surrender of such unlimited power and the establishment of centers in every section having the facilities to sustain them. In no part of the country is there exhibited a more determined effort to develop the strength of local advantages and thus secure the early fruits of the equitable disposition of trade and manufacture, than in the Southern States, and in Texas this progressive spirit is particularly prominent. No State in the Union is possessed of more valuable resources and in more unlimited quantities. Recognizing their importance, commercial and manufacturing industries are rapidly establishing centers in the midst of this boundless wealth. Of the several points thus selected none possess more favorable advantages than Dallas - the Queen City - and none are striving more energetically to establish itself upon a scale commensurate with its magnificent wealth of resources; and it is for the purpose of disseminating more thoroughly the knowledge of the wonderful opportunities which here await new business capital, and also its rapid development as a great commercial and manufacturing center, that the compilation of this volume has been undertaken. If our labors succeed, even to a limited extent, in advancing the material interests of the public at large, and of this beautiful and well deserving city in particular, we will feel that our work has not been in vain.

We desire to return our grateful and heartfelt thanks to T. F. McEnnis, President Merchants' Exchange; C. A. King, Sec'y Merchants' Exchange; W. L. Cabell, Mayor, for valuable assistance rendered, and to those business men who have so liberally patronized our work.
