SCase of S. M. Clyatt, Convicted of Peonage, Now Before United States Supreme Court. :
The Record Holds That There Is No Constitutional Authority for the Conviction.
~ # 0 0 0 0 #0*0 ~##** a**iWr*#9ViW 9 ad
Some time during the year 1902, a man
from South Florida went to Tifton, Ga.,
and beguiled away from Mr. S. M. Clyatt,
a prominent turpentine operator of that
place, several of his negro hands, and car-
ried them down to Polk County. Mr.
Clyatt had a contract with these negroes
by virtue of which they were to do work
for him a certain length of time, and re-
lying upon their good faith, he had ad-
vanced considerable money and supplies
to them. As soon as he located them,
therefore, he went down to Bartow and
carried them back to Georgia with him.
The matter being brought to the atten-
tion of a lawyer, who saw in it a possible
opportunity for notoriety and a fee, he
haled Mr. Clyatt before Judge Swayne at
Tallahassee in the United States Court.
Judge Swayne tried the case under the
peonage law of 1867 and having convicted
Clyatt, fined him $2.500 and sentenced
him to five years in the penitentiary. From
this decision Clyatt appealed to the Circuit
Court in session at New Orleans. The
judges of that Court not agreeing, the case
was certified to the Supreme Court at
Washington. where it now goes. Mean-
while Mr. Clyatt is out under heavy bond
Last Tuesday a mass meeting was held
in Tifton for the purpose taking action
in the case. On being informed of this.
our Mr. Hollomon promptly wired Mayor
Timmons, who is also a prominent turpen-
tine man, asking for full details and ten-

ing the initiative to raise the necessary
money to bring their case properly before
the Supreme Court.

will recognize the vast importance to all
who are engaged in industries that necessi-

of promptly providing it.

the Federal Authorities, the mere accept-

Statute will subject the employer to im-

of five years, to a fine or $5,000, or both, at
the discretion of the Court, with the fur-
ther penalty of being forever disqualified
to hold any appointment under the Gov-
ernment of the United States.
In view of the appalling penalty im-
posed on Mr. Clyatt, and of the disastrous
consequences that must result to all em-
ployers of labor in the South from an af-
firmance of the judgment in his case, we
submit this appeal to you, trusting that
it will receive prompt and favorable con-
sideration at your hands, and that your
contribution will be measured in amount
by the gravity of the questions involved

Very respectfully yours,
Accompanying the letter was a speech
delivered in Congress March 28th last by
Hon. W. G. Brantley, of Georgia, on the
peonage law, in which he demonstrates-
that the peonage law of 1867 is uncon-
During the reconstruction craze, Con-
giess passed several laws indicative of its
temper, Among them were the Civil
Rights Bill, the Force Bill and the Peonage
Bill. All of these except the latter have
already been declared unconstitutional oy
the United States Supreme Court.
The peonage law is as follows:
"An act to abolish and forever prohibit
the system of peonage in the Territory ol
New Mexico and other parts of the Unit-
"Be it enacted, etc., That the holding of
any person to service or labor under the
system known as "peonage" is hereby de-
clared to be unlawful, and the same is
hereby abolished and forever prohibited in
the Territory of New Mexico, or in any
other Territory or State of the United
States, and all acts, laws, resolutions,
orders, regulations, or usages of the Ter-
ritory of New Mexico, or of any other
Territory or State of the United States,
which have heretofore established, main
stained or enforced, or by virtue of which
any attempt shall hereafter be made to
establish, maintain or enforce, directly or
indirectly, the voluntary or involuntary
service of labor of any persons as peons
in liquidation of any debt or obligation,
or otherwise, be and the same are hereby
declared null and void; and any person or
persons who shall hold, arrest, or return,
or cause to be held, arrested or returned.
or in any other manner aid in the arrest
or return of any person or persons to a
condition of peonage, shall, upon convic-
tion, be punished by fine of not less than
$1,000 nor more than $5,000, or by im-
prisonment not less than one nor more
than five years, or both in the discretion
of the court.
"Sec. 2. And be it further enacted, That
it shall be the duty of all persons in the
military or civil service in the Territory of
New Mexico to aid in the enforcement of
the foregoing section of this act; and any
person or persons who shall obstruct or
attempt to obstruct, or in any way inter-
fere with or prevent the enforcement of
this act shall be liable to the punishments
and penalties hereby provided, and any
officer or other person in the military ser
vice of the United States who shall so
offend, directly or indirectly, shall on con-
viction before a court-martial be dishon-
orably dismissed from the service of the
United States, and shall thereafter be in
eligible to reappointment to any office of
trust, honor or profit under the Govern-
"Approved March 2, 1867."
The Supreme Court, in 109 United
States on page 20, says:
"By its own unaided force and effect it
(the 13th amendment) abolished slavery
and established universal freedom. Still,
legislation may be necessary and proper
to meet all the various cases and circum-
stances to be affected by it, and to pre-
scribe proper modes of redress for its vio-
lation in letter orspirit and such legisla-
character, for the amendment is not a
mere prohibition of the State laws es-
tablishing or upholding slavery, but an ab-
solute declaration that slavery or invol-
untary servitude shall not exist in any
part of the United States"
And again on page 23, the Court says:
"Under the 13th amienumient, the legis-
lation, so tar as is necessary or proper to
eradicate all forms and incidents of slav-
ery and involuntary servitude, may be di-
rect and primary, operating upon the acts
of individuals, whether sanctioned by
State legislation or not."
Again on page 20, the Court says:
"But it has a iellex character also, es-
tablishing and decreeing universal civil
.ind political freedom throughout the Unit-
d States; and it is assumed that the
power vested in Congress to enforce the
article by appropriate legislation clothes
Congress with power to pass all laws nec-
essary and proper for abolishing all badges
and incidents of slavery in the United
Whatever the contention may be, says
Mr. Brantley in his speech, as to the ex-
act meaning of this language, there are
two facts already established that make
.ts meaning of no importance to our con-
tention The one is that this same decis-
ion announced that without a law author-
izing it, there can be no slavery, and the
other is that there is no law in Georgia
recognizing slavery or peonage It follows,
therefore, that no matter what Congress
.nay have the power to do, a citizen of
,-eorgia cannot be held guilty of an of-
eense that he cannot commit."
The case of Cruikshank, et al., (92 U. S.
p. 542) was one in point. There the Su-
preme Court held that-
"The duty of a government to afford
protection is limited always by the pow-
er it possesses for Lhat purpose.
"The government of the United States,
although it is within the scope of its
powers, supreme and beyond the States,
can neither grant nor secure to its citi-
zens rights or privileges which are not
expressly or by implication placed under
its jurisdiction. All that cannot be so
granted or secured, are left to the exclu-
sive protection of the States.
"The duty of protecting all of its citi-
zens in the enjoyment of an equality ol
rights was originally assumed by the
States, and it still remains there. The
only obligation resting upon the United
States is to see that the States do not
deny the right."
In the case of Eberhart et al., tried be-
fore Judge W. T. Newman, in the United
States Court for the Northern District
of Georgia, published in the Federal lle-
porter, vol. 127, will be found Judge New-
man's opinion dismissing the case on the
ground of unconstitutionality. This was
a case exactly like the case of Clyatt. The
following is Judge Newman's opinion:
"The indictment charges the defendants
with certain acts in restraint of the per-
sonal liberty of named persons of African
descentt, and characterizes these acts as
peonage, and charges the defendants with
holding the persons named as peons, and
with returning them to a condition ot
peonage, in violation of the act of Con
gress of March 2, 1867 (chap. 187, 14 Stat.
L., 546; Rev. Stat., see. 5526; U. S. Comp.
St, 1901, p. 3715). The act of Congress
named, entitled "An act to abolish and
forever prohibit the system of peonage in
the Territory of New Mexico, and other
parts of the Luited States," was aimed
at a system.
"Its purpose was to abolish and forever
prohibit the system known as "peonage,"
as it existed in New Mexico and elsewhere.
A lull discussion of this system and how
it caiue to exist in New Mexico will be
iound in the case of Jaremillo vs. Romero
(1 N. AL 190). It came with the terri-
tory ceded to the United States by the
treaty with Mexico alter the Mexican war.
it was part of the systein of the people
inhabiting that territory. The clear pur-
pose of the act was to deal with this sys-
tem by abolishing it and prohibiting a re-
turn to it. An examination of the act will
show that this is true beyond question.
No such system as this ever existed in
Georgia. African slavery existed, but this
was the ownership of Africans and persons
of African descent as chattels. There
could not be, therefore, in Georgia, any
such thing as holding persons under this
system of peonage or returning them to
"It would be the merest perversion of
this act to attempt to apply it to an ordi-
nary case of restraint of personal liberty,
and the case is not strengthened by the
charge that the person so restrained is of
African descent. However wrongful and il-
iegal some of the acts charged in the in-
.tictment may be, they cannot be punished
under the statute named. The purpose of
,his act, as stated, was to abolish this sys-
tem of peonage and to render null and
void all acts, laws, resolutions, orders, reg-
ulations or usages, in New Mexico or else-
where which established or which sought to
establish this system. The penal part ot
the act will not be enlarged beyond the
scope and purpose of the act as above indi-
cated. The penalty is for holding under,
or for arresting or returning to, this con-
dition of peonage. A person must have
I.een held under this system or arrested
and returned to it; that is, to a pre-exist-
ing condition of peonage.
"It may be added that even if the act
of Congress on which this indictment is
based could be held applicable in Georgia
the acts set out in the indictment are
nothing like the old system of peonage.
That system seems to have been, even as
it came from Mexico, a voluntary system
of labor and of servitude. The individual,
,n the beginning, at least, voluntarily as-
sumed this service. He was afterwards.
it is true, held to the service against his
will until his contract was discharged, and
lie could be held under it or by the cus-
tom and usages of the country arrested
and returned to it.
"Certain it is, that by the act of the
Territorial legislature of New Mexico of
1852 (Laws 1851-52, p. 184), which was
probably in force when the act of Con-
gress was passed, the service must have
isten voluntarily entered into (Jaremillo
vs. Ilmnero, supra). So that both under
the old system of peonage, as it came
from New Mexico, and also as it was em-
l)odied in the statute law of New Mexico,
the contract was enteral into freely and
voluntarily by the servant. The act of
Congress on which this indictment is based
is inapplicable in Georgia, and, even if
applicable here, the facts set out in the in-
dictment are not sucl as make a case
under the act. To merely characterize acts
in restraint of personal liberty as peonage
is not sufficient to make them such-cer-
tainly not under this act of Congress."

YELLOW PINE NORTH.
What the Staple is Doing in the Leading
New York.-The staple has shown some
improvement during the past fortnight.
Inquiry for stock seems to be more active
in the yard trade than for general con-
struction work, and it is believed that
within the next thirty days prices will
show an upward tendency.
Philadelphia.-Yellow pine is just now
under more active inquiry than it has
been at any time since last autumn.
All the wholesale dealers are doing busi-
ness. None of them complain as to prices.
Purchases have been made covering deliv-
eries as late as July. Some yards hith-
erto touching yellow pine rather lightly,
are now arranging to carry large stocks
and have made a good start by securing
contracts for supplies.
Buffalo.-Slack conditions prevail in yel-
low pine, but it is only temporary. North-
ern demand is picking up and promises
to be large. There is more actual need
of this wood than ever before.
Boston.-There are no very large or-
ders here for hard pine, and but little in-
quiry pointing to future business. On
small bills, however, there is something
doing. Prices are steady, and for big
sticks decidedly firm. The market may
be quoted for all yellow pines as quiet
St. Louis.-Tone quiet, but better. Or-
ders will be plentiful, if good weather pre-
vails. The season is backward, and ship
ments from mills are not prompt.
Cincinnati.-Pine market firm and sales
aggregate a fair volume of business.
List prices are maintained and prospect
for business good.
Baltimore. Duplicate stocks have been
ordered by nearly all the dealers in antic-
ipation of the spirited inquiry, and it
will trouble some of those in the trade tU
handle them. Prices range from 50 cent.
to $1.50 per 1,000 feet higher than a
year ago, and double that on last fall's
prices. No material advance is antici-
pated in prices.
Against Reduction of Output.
Mr. J. A. Bell, president of the J. A.
Bell Lumber Co., of Lake Charles, La..
discussing at New Orleans the reported
project to curtail the production of yel-
low pine, says that the manufacturers of
his territory will not endorse such a plan,
as they can sell all the lumber they can
manufacture. He added:
"The manufacturers of Lake Charles
do not want to curtail production, be-
cause we have been running 10 hours a
day and have not been accumulating such
heavy stocks. We will continue to run
for this time, and we will continue to sell
out our cut.
"Those who want to curtail production
will never accomplish their object. Opposi-
tion will be too strong."
Cypress in Demand.
There is no change in the cypress mar-
ket North so far as official prices are
concerned, although the demand has been
increasing in such volume of late that
figures above the official price list are
being secured on some orders, particularly
for dried stocks. Cypress has more than
held its own during the entire winter
months, and with only a nominal supply
of dry stock in the mills and in first
hands, indications point to an exceedingly
active Spring and Summer in this line.
New York quotations are: 1 inch firsts and
seconds, $44.25; 1 inch selects, $38.25, and
inch shop, $29.25.
Good reports come in from all the
The Wldte-Blakeslee-Mfg. Co.'s New Fac-
tory in Operation.
The plant of the White-Blakeslee Manu-
facturing Company, at Birmingham, Ala.,
destroyed by fire on the 12th of February
last, as reported in this paper, has been
rebuilt along the lines of the most modern
machine shop construction, with more
than double the floor space of the former
building, and with complete new equip-
ment of tools, of the most modern design
adapted to the production of their line of
manufacture, giving them facilities unsur-
passed anywhere in the world. The re-
building and putting into active operation
of a plant of this size within sixty days
of its complete destruction by fire is a
record unparalleled. We extend our hearty
congratulations to one of the foremost
unbuilders of the New South, and be-
speak for them the liberal support of our
Booming in Georgia.
In spite of the fact that this is a presi-
dential year, it is the consensus of opinion
among lumbermen that business is live-
lier than ever known before at this season,
and that the prospect is the best ever
known in this section. "The lumbermen
are not thinking much about politics," said
J. J. West, of the West Lumber Company,
of Atlanta, in speaking of the situation;
"and, indeed, the presidential election
seems to have had absolutely no effect on
business in this section. I have never
known business to be so good at this sea-
son. In February my own business show-
ed an increase of over twenty per cent
over last year, and the increase this month
will be even greater. The amount of
building that is going on is simply aston-
ishing. Houses are going up on all sides,
and lumber is harder to get than I have
ever known it before." Mr. West's opin-
ion is that of all lumbermen in his sec-

AN INSPECTION BUREAU.
Steps Taken for Organization by the Geor-
gia Interstate Sawmill Association.
At the meeting of the Georgia Interstate
Sawmill Association held at Valdosta this
week steps were taken to secure the or-
ganization of a lumber inspection bureau
whereby much of the friction existing be-
tween sawmills and those who buy there-
from will be averted.
A resolution was adopted appointing
eight members, who are not only sawmill
men, but factors and shippers as well, to
undertake the details of the organization.
The eight men are Wm. Frazier Jones and
N. G. Wade from Jacksonville; F. E. Way-
mer and Thomas Dowling from Fernan-
dina; Martin F. Amorous and Morgan V.
Gress from Brunswick; W. B. Stillwell
and J. W. Dicky from Savannah. E. C.
Harrell will secretary of the Bureau.
These gentlemen will, in pairs, select
inspectors and deputy inspectors at their
several ports of men who will be compe-
tent and honest and who will do satis-
factory work. While the four ports will
act, as far as possible in concert, the de-
tails will be looked after by the two
men named for each. The inspectors are
to be paid by fees of so much per 1,000
feet of lumber inspected.
The main object to be attained by the
movement is uniformity in inspection on
a satisfactory basis, that will, when the
bureau is once established, be accepted as
final by the Northern consignee as well
as the shipper and the sawmill man.
There has existed for many years in
this territory a great deal of friction on
the subject of lumber inspection. There
has been made ugly charges against in-
spectors and against sawmill men, too,
of unfair methods in inspection. The
sawmill men complain that they have
been discriminated against by the inspec-
tors in many cases. The inspectors have
complained that the sawmill men have
not sent forward lumber of the grades
claimed and there has been much throw-
ing out of stuff that, under a bureau of
inspection properly managed would not
have been sent, or would have been ac-
The plan is to have a chief inspector
appointed for each port whose duty it will
be to maintain an office force, and a corps
of inspectors sufficient to inspect all the
lumber that goes through that port; each
inspector to be appointed by. and directly
under the chief inspector, and to be as-
signed by him from day to day, where-
ever and to whomsoever calls for an in-
spector, and that the inspector shall work
on a fee, which fee is to be paid by the
mill and the merchant. The chief inspec-
tor and his office to be supported in the
same manner. About 5 cents per thousand
feet will support the latter and about 20
cents per thousand feet will amply pay
the former. It will be an easy matter for
the Association to find an excellent man
at each port for chief inspector.
This plan will entirely remove the re-
sponsibility of the merchant and will put
the inspection of lumber at the various
The Record is glad that this step has
been taken, for in our judgment it is a
very important matter. We will keep
our readers posted as to how it is pro-
Death of D. C. Layton.
Mr. D. C. Laytor lied Tuesday morn-
ing at his home in Folkston, Fla., and
was buried Wednesday.
The immediate cause of his death was
blood-poisoning, following typhoid fever
of forty days duration.
He leaves an aged mother, who has been
blind for ten years, an invalid wife and
five boys, the sons of his first wife.
Mr. Layton was about forty-five years
of age. and was a successful business man,
and left his family well provided for. He
owned an interest in several turpentine
stills and in a sawmill, and had consider-
able property in and around Folkston.
Mrs. A. S. Layton will soon come to make
her home with her daughter, Mrs. Wolff.

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 11
S. P. HOLMES & CO.'S MARKET
Stocks. It will not do to be deceived
into the idea that certain stocks have had
their rise simply because they halt. This
is pertinent to Union and Southern Pa-
eific. The manner in which these stocks
are being advanced is calculated to encour-
age the short interest and keep it alive.
There has been exceptionally good buy-
ing in these two issues and from the indi-
cations they both will sell substantially
higher. As was pointed out in this letter
a week ago, the talk of a corner in Union
Pacific is silly. The general opinion ap-
pears to be that the interest representing
this property are right in their contention
that Northern Pacific solely should be dis-
tributed to them under the dissolution of
Northern Securities instead of both North-
ern Pacific and Great Northern. It will
give Union Pacific control of the Northern
Pacific road and redound remarkably to
the strength of the position of it and allied
properties. Apart from the very strong
position of these two roads in the west-
ern railway situation their earnings are
exceptionally good. For February Union
Pacific reports a gross increase of $704,000
and net gain of $477,000. Southern Pa-
cific for the same month gained $904,00
gross and $406,000 net. These are stocks
of the hour and should be bought upon
any dip. Atchison continues to show
strength and heavy buying has developed
in Rock Island. It is manipulative, no
Doubt, but an upward movement has start-
ed in this stock, and it looks like a money-
making purchase. Among the lower prices
issues, we are likely to see pronounced
moves in Erie and Southern Railway. It
seems quite in the line of logic to sup-
pose that the heavy buying of Chicago
Great Western on Tuesday was a more
serious purpose than throwing away mon-
ey in commissions. Barring occasional re-
actions, such as that of to-day, for ex-
ample, we feel that the tendency of the
market should continue in favor of im-
provement. The right sort of people seem
to be behind the rise and the manner in
which they are conducting it indicates
that the culmination is probably some
distance in the future.
Cotton. It is an interesting question
now of supply and demand. That is, spec-
ulation has become much less aggressive
than prior to the Sully failure. Northern
spinners have taken about 150,000 bales
more than they did a year ago up to this
time and Southern consumption is about
the same. Exports have been something
like 700,000 bales less. Current opinion
is that the crop will be about 10,200,000 to
10,250,000 or practically 500,000 bales
smaller than a year ago. Consequently
the decrease in demand to date seems to
about offset the shrinkage in the yield.
Of course, the visible supply is low, prac-
tically in England, which makes a strong the Northwest, with their markets quite
position when emphasized by the decrease strong. Considerable profit taking was
in imports. It seems to be a question
now as to whether spinners here and
abroad can keep out the market as com-
pulsory buyers and thus force prices up.
Of course, steps are being taken every-
where among the manufacturers to curtail
consumption and hold off as as far as
possible until the new crop comes upon
the market. The action of the spinners at
Fall River is about the most important
step yet taken in this direction. The con-
dition created by heavy speculative buy-
ing, leaving the placing of a great per-
centage of the crop in speculative con-
tinues. If spinners have to buy cotton,
this speculative element will be in clover
and dictate prices, but if on the other
hand the consumer keeps out of the mar-

THE PEONAGE LAW.
The peonage law now in the federal stat-
utes is a relic of the reconstruction craze.
Originally enacted to protect the Indians
in tne territory of New Mexico, Congress
tried to make its application general.
Had it been limited in its operations to
exclusive federal territory, such as the
territories, government buildings, and the
like, it probably would have served its
We hold that it is unconstitutional as
applied to sovereign States, and it was
left to men who owe their judgeships to
their partisanship, to revive what has long
since been regarded as a dead letter.
Laws are the enactment of public de-
mand where needed. They are intended to
regulate conditions. Conditions in the
South at this time, require laws regulat-
ing the duties and obligations existing be-
tween employers and employed. These
laws, let us say in passing, are enacted
by the several States. If any State law
contravenes any expressed authority dele-
gated to the federal government, the fede-
ral courts will decide it unconstitutional.
No federal criminal law is operative unless
there be found for it expressed authority
in the federal constitution. This has been;
held time and again by the federal courts.
Judge Newman, an upright federal judge
in Georgia, tried a man named Eberhardt
under this peonage law several years ago.
and dismissed the case, deciding that *!.e
law was unconstitutional. Eminent coun-
sel have maintained the same view.
The S. M. Clyatt Case must be brought
properly before the United States Suprenme
Court. Every Southern man who has to
deal with negroes is interested in this case.
It is not Mr. Clyatt alone. We dislike to
see him punished for doing what he L.'-
lieved to be morally right, and not l:.. ly
wrong; again, should Swayne's decision
stand it will put a premium on negro
thriftlessness, irresponsibility, and treat i-
ery that will seriously disrupt labor con-
ditions in the South to-day. Above all.
however, there are hundreds of the best
men in the South, many of them turpen-
tine and sawmill operators who have in the
past been necessarily forced, in the pro-
tection of their own property interests,
and even personal liberty in some cases,
to take practically the same course at
times that Clyatt did, and if this decision
is sustained by the United States Supreme
Court, it will place an opportunity in the
hands of a coterie of shyster lawyers in
these States to prosecute and blackmail
and otherwise give trouble to scores of
good citizens, who are as law-abiding as
any, and whose proper regard for the exe-
cution of law and order cannot be ques-
\e must go to Mr. Clyatt's relief. A
fund must be raised to retain the best
legal talent in the country in order to get
the case properly argued before the court
of last resort.
The Industrial Record does not condone
wrong doing; it does not believe in tem-
porizing with justice; it does not believe
in any unfair treatment of labor; it does
not believe in taking advantage in the
slightest degree of any man because ot
race or color or previous condition of ser-
vitude; but it does believe in fair dealing,
and it does believe in the right and sta-
bility of contract. Further, it believes
in tile sovereignty of the States.
AFTER TWENTY-THREE YEARS.
In 1880 the value of lumber products
in the South was $39,000,000. Last year
it wavs $200,000,000, increase of 412 per
Inl 1880 the value of manufactured prod-
ucts in the South was $457,000,000. Last
year it was $1,600,000,000, an increase of
251 per cent.
In 1880 our foreign exports through
Southern ports were worth $261,000,000.
Last year they were worth $508,000,000,
an increase of 90 per cent.
In 1880 we had 26,000 miles of railroad
in operation in the South. Last year we
had 60,000 miles, an increase of 191 per
In 1880, the Southern cotton crop was
worth $313,696,000. Last year it was worth
$625,000,000, an increase of 99 per cent.
In 1880 all of the agricultural products of
the South were worth $660,000,000. Last
year they were worth $1,700,000,000, an
increase of 154 per cent.
And the South has just begun to grow.
PLENTY OF MONEY.
According to official statistics, there is
more money in circulation in the United
States now than ever before in its history
during peaceful times. Our national popu-
lation is increasing at the rate of from one
to two million per annum, and the increase
in money output is much greater than
that. The increase in national products
does not keep apace with the increase of
either our population or our money. The
consequence is that the cost of living is
increasing along with the other incre-
ments. The trust, while baleful, is only
an incident. If the trusts be done away
with, individuals would take their places
and corners would be formed to control
temporarily or permanently some given
output that offered an opportunity for
profit by cornering ft. The way to break
up trusts and combines, is not by preach-
ing anarchy, but by producing in large
quantities those products that go to make
up the staples of industry and of life.
Whence this increase in money? Surely
the government is not issuing any more
greenbacks, and we hear of but few nat-
ional banks emitting bills. One source is
that balance of trade is in our favor. In
other words, we are exporting much more
than we are importing. Another is the
output of our gold mines is greater, and
more gold is being coined into money.
Those disturbing elements that have for
the past eight or ten years upset values
have been put down and timid capital, that
hid its head during the disturbances, is now
creeping forth from its hiding place, and
finding investment in many directions.
The Record has most of the time a stall
correspondent travelling in Georgia and
Florida. Amongst other things our rep-
resentative has noticed, one fact stands
out undisputed: When calling on a saw-
mill man he has invariably noticed that,
if the mill was advertised, the owners had
plenty of orders. The reverse was also
as true; where the mill owner did not ad-
vertise the fact that he was on the earth,
the Eastern buyer seemed to absolutely
ignore him, with the result that he has to
tight with others for tenders sent out by
the middlemen. As a result the economi-
cally inclined sawmill man saves a couple
of hundred dollars a year by not making
himself known, and pays ten times that
amount to the middleman who alone knows
where to find him. Be assured that, in
this age, a man who does not let his "light
shine" will never make the money his
advertising competitor will. There is no
question but what a small advertisement
in this paper will repay the sawmill man
one hundred per cent.
HIS LITERARY SIDE.
The Industrial Record is the recognized
trade paper of the naval stores man, the
lumberman, the cattle-breeder and the
cane-grower. It endeavors to cover the
entire field embraced in its title in making
a record of the industries now develop-
ing within its radius, but its chief mission
is to foster the specialties above alluded to.
The average man engaged in either of
them will be found to be something more
than an ordinary man. He has energy,
push, business judgment and discretion.
He has something more than this. He
has tastes, literary, ethical and artistic.
lie enjoys classical reading, good music
and other luxuries that come to bless a
superior intellect. After reading the trade
news, items, quotations, advertisements.
etc., of the Record, there is still something
in his makeup that wants something else,
something besides trade, quotations and
advertisements. He craves a modicum of
literary pabulum. It is in part to gratify
this that we have added four more pages
to the Record and it is our purpose here-
after to devote more or less space to,
bright little literary gems, bits of humor.
poetry, reminiscence, etc, an appetizing
dessert, as it were, to top off the hearty
business meal we have furnished him

to tickle his fancy and add a few hap-
pier hours to his weeks.
The Industrial Record is undergoing a
regular boom in its subscription depart-
ment. Already reaching practically every
turpentine man in the Southern States, a
large number of sawmill operators, and a
very fair list of other manufacturers anti
business people generally, within the past
ten days over one hundred new subscribers
have been added. The Record is already
recognized as one of the leading weekly
trade journals in this country.
VAPORIZING AS USUAL.
The Savannah Naval Stores Review in
its last issue attempts to construe a re-
cent article in the Record on trade condi-
tions and prospects into a confession that
the Record erred in urging turpentine men
to organize to protect the market. Our
remarks will bear no such forced construe-
tion, and the Review is vaporizing as usual
in tryinf to make it. It is very certain
that prices can be maintained much easier
by co-operation where all are agreed on
a policy, than when such papers as the
Review are trying to break them down.
In the meantime the Record again asserts
that the minimum prices agreed upon will

Embraced the Wrong Man.
It was in a barber shop. Two men,
total strangers to each other, were be-
ing shaved, and the lather covered their
faces so entirely that neither could have
been recognized by his wife-as it
Suddenly a lady rushed in and going
to one of the men, put her arms around
him, kissed him, lather and all, and ex-
claimed, "Good bye, dear. I've decided
to go by an earlier train so am in a
great hurry. Be a good boy," and she
was gone in an instant.
The man who had been thus cuddled,
raised up in his chair and asked the
"Who was that woman?"
The barber did not know.
"I'd give a day's wages to know who
it was that hugged me like that. Does
any one know her?"
"Yes," said the occupant of the other
chair, who was wiping the lather from
his mouth. "I know her. She's my wife.
There's a picnic on Pablo today and
she's going to take it in."
"What made her kiss me?"
"Don't Know unless she mistook you
for me. I can stand it if you can."

Way Down Upon the Suwannee River.
Years ago there was located on the
east bank of the Suwanee River a board-
ing house, in the then thriving town of
Columbus. Both Columbus and the board-
ing have long since joined the things
that were. Among the boarders was a
sick gentleman from New York who spent
several weeks there. He could be found
* rly every morning at the Cowpen
where he ri.nnk freely of the fresh milk.
He was a fine singer and an excellent
musician. His health was almost restor-
ed but he died several years after, of
consumption. Before he left Columbus,
one afternoon in spring, on the ledge of
rocks which skirts the springs, he wrote
that ballad which will be sung so long
as time lasts, "Way down upon rte Swan-
nee Ribber." The author's name is Wil-
liam Christy. of Christy's Minstrels.
The Pleasures of Cribbage.
There is a peculiar pleasure that comes
to the enthusiastic player of cribbage not
enjoyed in any other game. In whist
tnere is pleasure in looking over the thir-
teen cards constituting a hand. and in
the gradual disposal of them the mind is
on a tension to determine just who holds
the unplayed cards. In pinochle there is
pleasure in noting the kaleidscopic
changes that each play and draft dis-
closes; the mind is worried to determine
what to hold with hope of meetingg."
and what to break. And so it is with
other games at cards. They involve an
element of worry and an effort of the
mind that remains with the play: iuti
the play is done.
In cribbage, however, the elements of
worry and mental effort are lacking.
There is pleasure in scanning the hand,
even in the momentary hesitation as to
the wisdom of the discard. The turn of
the trump causes the mind to adjust it to
tue cards in hand.
Then the play. That dread of having
a card matched, and the dread of the
matcher of being matched with a third
on the kind, are but momentary anxieties
which add zest to the game. The "fif-
teen two" and the "thirty-one" score is
always a pleasure to the player who
makes it. Care'essness in playing con-
secutive cards, or those with only one
spot intervening meets with its punish-
ment when a "run" is scored as a re-
sult. Then after the cards have been
played there is a pleasure in scoring, es-
pecially if the score be a good one.
The anxieties and pleasures follow each
other very rapidly in cribbage. Playing
it is much like drinking soda witter. Any
sensation invoked, be it one of risk or
response, is over in le-s time than it
take to tell it. Frothy. sparkling, and
absorbing for a few seconds, it is a sort
of mental friction involved in an intel-
lectual bout, with frequent resting spells

WORKING WITH THE CYPRESS.
Bureau of Forestry has a Man in Florida
on a Good Mission.
Cypress timber deadened at certain
times of the year will at once be attacked
by pinworms, also the sap of the trees
will blue and stain; deadened at the prop-
er time the trees will stay sound for a
period of three or four years, without
injury from pinworms or stain. A. D.
Hopkins, of Washington, D. C., who is
in charge of Forest Insect Investigation,
Division of Entomology, U. S. Department
of Agriculture, has been calling on the
manufacturers of cypress lumber in Flor-
ida during the last two weeks, with a
view towards determining the most prac-
tical time for deadening cypress timber.
Mr. Hopkins has secured the promise of
co-operation along this line of investiga-
tion from the most successful operators
in cypress and it may be expected that
the experiments now being made will with-
in a few months enable the Forestry De-
partment to give valuable information
about this important matter and save
many thousands of dollars to the cypress
Jacksonville Anti-Trust Suit.
In the United States Court in Jackson-
ville recently Judge Lock issued an order
granting an extension of ninety days for
taking testimony in the suit brought by
the United States against the Baker a
Holmes Company and the other members
of the Wholesale Grocer's Association.
This is the suit brought under the Sher-
man anti-trust law, and has as its object
the prosecution of the members of the al-
leged trust or combination, which, it is
claimed, is illegal and contrary to law.
Great interest has been manifested in this
suit, but the proceedings have been very
slow. The case was referred to a master
some time ago, but no testimony has as
yet been taken.

THE OCALA STOCK SALE.
Prices Not High, but Interest in Stock Im-
It is quite natural that a sale of thor-
oughbred cattle should take place at Ocala;
Marion County is one of the most progres-
sive counties in the State and to-day has
in it more blooded stock than any half-
dozen other counties. Judging from the
sale this will not long be the case, how-
ever, as buyers were present from all parts
of the State and the enthusiasm created
by the organization of the Southeastern
Stockbreeders' Association is growing
Some fifty registered Shorthorn and
Hereford cattle were sold and about thirty
grades. All those offered were, with the
exception of five owned by Mr. Campbell
Russell, Hereford, Indian Territory, owned
by Z. C. Chambliss & Co., and their ap-
pearance testified, more strongly than
words, the excellence of Mr. Chambliss'
judgment and the care given them at the
Palmetto Park Farm. The farm itself is
an ideal spot for growing cattle and has
every appliance that serves to make the
work efficient. The stock was auctioned
by Col. R. E. Edmondson, a veteran in
his profession, and known to all from
Chicago to El Paso and the sale ring was
surrounded by two hundred visitors,
amongst whom were several ladies, who
took great interest in the animals paraded.
Col. Edmondson considers the lot sold the
finest ever offered in Florida and predicts
a great awakening in stock grading.
Prices were generally more satisfactory to
the buyer than the seller, but then this
was a missionary sale

all parts of the State-were: E. L. Wart-

A pleasant trip was tendered your cor-
respondent, while in Ocala to the convict
farm, by Mr. S. A. Rawls, who has charge
of all the State convicts. The farm is
used for the prisoners who are too weak
or sick to work in the woods, and is in
charge of Col. R. F. Rogers, an enthusiast-
ic stockgrower and farmer. Although la-
boring under great difficulties the farm is
already making wonderful progress. One
hundred acres have been planted to pecan
trees, and there is besides an extensive
nursery of the same trees that are making
fine growth. The herd of Jerseys, headed
by a pedigree bull, will soon be furnishing
the State with the best milkers known and
the graded Hereford stock, for which Man-
ager Rawls purchased a magnificent thor-
oughbred bull, is doing remarkably well
and will furnish model beefers in a short
while. The farm has made wonderful
progress and bids fair soon to be a model
for farmers throughout the State.

Big Cypress Deal.
The Louisiana Construction Company, of
Philadelphia, has bought 109,000 acres of
land in Avoyelles parish. The considera-
tion was $950,000. A large portion of
the land is cypress timber land that has
never been cut over. The cleared land,
which is 1,000 acres, will be put in cotton.
Sawmills will be erected for the manufac-
ture of lumber.
The following recent decisions are of
interest to the craft. They have been ren-
dered recently and fix a precedent for seve-
ral knotty questions:
Where no bills of lading are issued, the
carrier is justified in delivering the goods
to the consignee without the production of
receipts or other evidence of ownership
that may have been issued to such con-
signee. (96 N. W. Reu., 959.)
A mere delay by a common carrier is
wholly insufficient to create a liability. It
must be an "unreasonable delay, which is
such as involves some want of ordinary
care or diligence" on the part of the car-
rier. (106 Ill. App., 563.)
Where a person takes over the entire
stock of another, and publishes a notice
that he has assumed the debts for goods
purchased by the previous owner, the cred-
itors of such former owner are entitled
to sue the purchaser in their own names.
(55 Atl. Rep., 1051.)
Present Busy Scene.
The lumber yards and planing mills of
the East Coast Lumber and Supply Com-
pany, at Eau Gallie, have presented a very
busy scene for the past two or three weeks.
The large force of men in the yard and
in the shops have not been able to keep
pace with the business, and it has been
found necessary to operate the mills at
night until 10 o'clock. The steamer Spar-
tan, with two lighters, is making regular
trips from Hobe Sound, bringing up the
cargo of cypress lumber from the wrecked
schooner Martha Thomas, the schooner
Sunny South is also engaged ii this
work. There is nearly a half million feet
of this lumber to be brought up. A i0-
horsepower boiler and engine and other
machinery has been ordered, and will he
installed at once for the purpose of work-
ing up this lumber, and will also be op--
rated in future to keep up with the ever-
growing business of the company.-Titus-
