Board of Trade meeting -
Meeting called to order by rrdildeni
Dutton. Minutes of previous meeting
and minutes of meeting of the gBoard, of'
Governors read and approved..
Committee to confer with eity author-
ities in regard to the sanitary-condition
of the city reported that they had waited
on the officials of the city but as yet
had accomplished nothing.
P. Miller, on behalf of the committee
on new hotel, appointed by the Board of
Governor, reported that Mannger
Halnes, of the S. -. & W. jt. i., hadl
agreed to deliver all material for a new
hotel and take their pay for freight
charges in stock of the hotel company.
Dr. Chaplri, of the committee to raise
-money to defray expenses of a delegate
to the Quarantine Convention, reported
that he had collected and-furneav over
Joseph Voyle, delegate to t .: Quar-
antine Convention, reported that $38
had beeu received by. Theatibflntwas
insufficient, anl would have been re-
tui*ned, but a friend came' forward with
the balance necessary.
. Hieported that his cred6ntials-were
ca'dt he was the peer of any dele-
nt. His paper wras.receeled
by the committee or the first
listened to by itheConvehtion
marked attention, and he received
generous congratulations from men of
national reputation. Having studied
the subject well, your delegate was able
to take part in the discussion and throw
much light on subjects of thtetest to
Florida. Especially waskthis the case
when Florida's business was in danger
of being embarrassed by the Impositloh
of costly systems of quarantine, inspeo'
tion, detention, isolation, nol-in-er-
course, and other panic-dictated prepo-
sitions which were set forth, such as
would, if long continued, cost more than
the whole floating and business capital
of an ordinary community. One sen.
tenc only, used in this defence, was.
published, which, in its Isolated posi-
tion, was'exceedingly offensive; but, In.
the manner used,'it setri weighty
purpose and prevented e f
far more offensive *4ules ."c

The present lituatlon oCutir afjiirs was
put in i taiofable light as-rpeabl-e.

photograpihs of. the ard o a eda
supply of other photographs o be alty,
and they proved to -be -exceeedngly ef-
fective in recommeuding this city to the
favorable consideration of the delegates.
Many epiressed their iatonishment, and
complimentary comments were freely
given to Garnesville, Fla. These pho-
tographs were given away. Surgeon--
General Hamiltoi- took a set to Was
I.ngton, .together -with my.chart of "TWb
Rise, Progress and b"eline ofthei'Ye

This he frequently declared wat ex-
ceedingly valuable document.

Places JI the quarantine system 6f .aml-
gation there and the able definop, by
nearly all of the delegation frodiler-
Ida, of the Plant line of steaqr4s be-
tween Cuba and Tampa.
- Your delegate called attentldn to the
incorrectness of Surgeon General Ham-
ilton's reports of how the yellow fever
came into Glinesvilleb aud showed by
the score books of the base ball blubs,
that no games had been played since
July, and that Dr. Posey, the Surgeon
General's Inspector was here in August,
and reported no fever. He tifeh pro-
duced Capt. 4oowell's statement, that
when the OGralby were on duty at his
house, hi~i wife was sick with the
previlling fever.
There was neither contradiction or

proceeded to lay:before the large audience
his proposed establishment of- an auction
mart and for the sale of fruits and vegeta-
bles, and a canning establishment for
surplus fruit and vegetables atterg market
prices have become too low.to ship.
President Dutton followed with jppto-
prate remarks, and some discussion fol-
-l.wed. It was moved by Mr. Sheets, that
a committee be appointed to consult Mi.
Mann on canning factory Messrs. L. A.
Barnes., J. Falconer, J. Voyle. and 'D.

audience wotil bear with him if he re-i.
late his experience in attempting to
secure a home market for the orange I
crop of the State. His reason for givin
the same was to inform t.he audience of
all that had been lone in that line, with
a view to giving confidence in what he
proposed to do for them. He proved
conciusively that the best houses in the
North desired as much as we do that the
plan proposed, viz: home market for alj
our products, should be a success. Their
interests in this change lay in the fact
that by the purchase of our products
only moneyed men could exist in the
trade, and the trade legitimately belong-
ed to those who had the money to prop-
erly carry it on. He dwelt at length
upon, and proved conclusively that, the
interest of the Florida grower offruitsi
and vegetables and the Northern respon-
;ible dealers were one and the same,r
viz:' each are alike desirous to secure til
absence of the side in a business where
he has no ligitimate or honorable phtce

An Enthuilastle Meeting Oar People
Fuollof nope and Determined to Stand
-ror a Home Market-A Canoing Factory
a Necessity.
Our readers were fully apprised by us
that the Bo.ird of Trade had invited Sen-
ator Mann to deliver an address at their
rooms last Thursday evening instead of
the court house as was at first intended,,
but we must confess that we were sur-
prised at the great interest which out
people manifested in what it was sup-
posed this farmers' friend proposed tor
our good ; and all dayThur-day, although
Friday was election day, we came upon
many groups :of our gardeners and town
people, and heard from some, "Home'
market for all we raise," and from
others, "Save what you can't ship by
establishing a canning factory.'" The
election was lost sight of, and as the
hour drew near for the speaker to arrive
the people seemed to move in one direc-
tion, and long before the time, the
roomy apartments of the Board of Trade
would hold no more, and when the hnll
was filled, large crowds gathered on the-
streets to hear all they could through
the open windows.
Immediately upon the arrival of Mr.
Mann, the President of the Board of
Trade arose, and after paying an elo-
quent tribute to the speaker, whom it
was bis pleasure to intro duce, eaid that
after his labors in behalf of the growers
of oranges and vegetables, it seemed a
mockery to introduce Sen ator Mann, as
he was known to them al.] by his labor
in their behalf.
Senator Mann arose, and after th.ank-
ing the President for wh it ie had been
pleased to say and the Board for cour-
tesies extended, he said he hoped the

He dwelt at considerable length upon
all that was necessary to be done, al-,
waysicoming to the same conclusion,
wifiTh was, if bou people" would organ-
Ize, all that he promised and more would
be realized. He could talk, and he
might suggest, hut it would all amount
to nothing without a full and complete
organization. To this end he ventured
the suggestion that if anything was to
be done this season, not a moment should
be lost, that a committee of the Board of
Trade, acting with a similar committee
comlposed of vegetable grower, should.
be appointed to consider all that-. iha
been proposed, who on a more tlhqrgh
examination of the subject would:'lt'e
the people as to what they sholidu
After a talk of about two hoLQj6ie
Senator apologized for having oa A ed
'o much of their time, but stated ;ew.the
importance of the subject, and his" ltar-
est in the same was such that if he were'
to attempt to tell them all that lie Would
like them to know, it would take him d
solid week, and lie would close now w.th
the promise to meet them again at sucll
time as might please them.
President Dutton in a very neat and
pretty talk expressed the obligation of
the Board of Trade to Senator Mann foe'
his able, interesting and instructive ad-
dress, saying that he felt perfectly con-
fident that if our citizens would follow
the suggestions nlaide, a new era of pros-
perity was guaranteed to Gainesvllle,
Alachua county and the State, to secure
which lie pledged his best efforts andi
firmly believed that every man would'
do his duty.
Mr. W. N. Sheets spoke confidenfl
of the work proposed, promised his fti'
support, anil moved that a commnift
of four upon the part of the Board,'t
Trade, anll a committee o of ie olt
part of the vegetable glowers be.'`
pointed to consider what wai best I.
done, and report at a Iubli meem4
next Tuesday night, to convene at ji
Board of Trade rooms, which was ud
inlously adopted. The committee'

posed of the following gentlemen :

Voyle who introduced Senator Mann.
The Senator then entertained the au-
dience on the subject of Home Markets,
exposing tlhe methods by which low
pricesare c:lused. and showing the mean'
by which tle best prices for all oiur
vegetable and fruit product can be ob-
taioed. ce appears to be afraid it will
be a long lima- before thle farmers will
quit the old nmethod, fOr fear that Lhe

great points to be made by an orgnniz-d
honm m irket is the prevention of gluts.

pointed to iormulate a ill applying to

Since the Iast mi' tting, the matter .or
home market for a nJ systematic ship-
meut of produce, h as been vigorously
pushed under the au spl ces of the Board

these rooms and parties' iLterested ha*r
been addressed by Se nator Mann and
-tliers. .ales have beer maL1e here, and
shipments are being. ma le dai'Vy by the
association of which Mr. Manor is mana-
The object of bringing the bulk of
the shipping to this point is favorably
progres-ing. The railroads, are join lug
in with this plan to make this a massii i
point for shipment, and to this end veze -
t.lblsR are brought. to this place from.
stationss north of here, to be put in with
c.r load lots, and no freight is charged
or the bringing here, and for lots from
lte southward through rates are charg-
These advantages have already result-
ied in pecuniary good to this place, to
die promotion of the enterprise, and the
raisers of the produce.
its prospective good is very encourag-
ing. The work is being systemized, both
as to handling rapidly here, rapid tran-
,it to market, and finding the best mar-
ket toship to.
Daily reports by telegraph from all
lar] cities show where prices are low
andi the supply full. And arrangements
are now made to have daily reports of
the shipments from all parts of this
State. including kind, character and
Ile'tination. So thbt not only will it he
known ltIre what prices and supply is
on hand in the m'trket, but also the sup-
ply for each market that is on the way;
so tbat every shipment can be intelli-
gently made to the market paying the-
best price, and where there is the least
.supply, thus avoiding disadvantageous
gluts and consequent low prices; in fact
as far as possible controlling both supply
and deuIInd in the interest of the ship-
peIr I'rum this place.
Received reports and placed on file.
Board adjourned.
