The following address was made by Cap
tain R. E. Rose, State Chemist of Florida,
at the recent Convention of the South-
eastern Sugarcane Growers' Association.
Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen:
After listening to the addresses of those
gentlemen preceding me. who have so pos-
itively demonstrated the amount and
quality of sugarcane grown per acre,
throughout the Gulf States, and the cost
to produce it; with the testimony of such
men as Dr. H. W. Wiley, Prof. William
C. Stubbs and others, as to the sugar con-
tent of the plant; with the practical ex-
perience of men like Messrs. W. B. IRl-
denberry, C. K. McQuarrie and John Thomr
as Porter as to the cost of culture and
yield per acre; it would be presumptuous
for me to attempt to add to this feature
of the discussion.
I have for years maintained that it
was only necessary to ascertain these facts
as they exist and have been stated here,
of the cost to produce the cane, the yield
per acre in sugar, and to publish them au-
thoritatively, to induce an enormous de-
velopment in the commercial production
'f sugar in the Gulf States. In this con-
nection, I beg to repeat part of my re-
marks made this Association at Macon,
"The American people are the greatest
consumers of sugar in the world. Ou,
market for foreign sugar is acknowledged
to be thebo t known.
"We import annually. practically four
thousand million pounds, or 2,000.000 tons-
(excluding thbeugw, imported from our
isla4 poss!eOrons). of which 1.600,000
tons is raw, or unrefined, cane sugar; andl
389,000 tons refined beet sugar.
"The importation of strictly foreign
sugar for 1901-1902 was 3.975,000,00.1
"From the American colonisA, Porto
Rico, Hawaii and the Phillippines, 838,
000,000 pounds. Total imports including
the colonies, 4,813,000.000 pounds, or 2,
406,500 tons. We produced in tllh states
of beets, 163,126 tons. Of sugarcane iit
Louisiana. 275.000 tons. A total consump-
tion in the United States proper of 2,-
"Recently the production of American
sugar has been very largely increased h)
the establishment of the beet sugar in-
dustries in the West and Northwest, and
'y the annexation of our island colonies.
llawaii. Porto Rico and the Phillipines,
still with this enormous increase in th.-
American production. we produce but
thirty pwr cent of the sugar consumer
within the United States proper. Whil
on this subject I wish to call your at-
tention to the fact that with the exception
of 389.000 tons of beet sugar from Get
many. and 163.000 tons of western beet
sugar, this vast amount is cane sugna
only. The total cane sugar produced inl
the world is 3.775.000 tons, of which the
United States consumes 2.192,000 tons,
not quite two-thirds of the entire cant
sugar production of the world. The in
crease in beet sugar production durin-
the last twenty years under the fosterin.i
rare of Germany. Austria, France and oui
own government, has tben phenomenal.
To-day two-thirds of the world's sugar
is produced from beets. While beet cul
ture has had the intelligent fostering care
of our own, and the various European
governments, with government bounties,
rebates, tariffs and drawbacks. cane has
had neither; on the contrary legislation.
has always been adverse to cane sugar in
our own country and in England, the two.
largest consumers in the world.
"Scientists and trained agriculturists,
men eminent in their professions, have
hlen retained in the interest of beet cul-
ture to breed lup a plant from six to four-
teen per cent sugar content. Vast sums
have been expended in this and other
countries to promote the industry with
wonderful results. Until very recently no
intelligent effort to improve the quality)
of tropical cane. nor the methods of manu
factoring cane sugar, has been made. No
effort %\as made to encourage or educate
the cane grower. to improve his methods.
decrease his cost of culture and manufac-
ture. Recently, I am glad to say, the
I.uisiana Planter's Association, at theii
wn expense, established a sugar expert
mental station, and placed a compete!
man in charge--a practical man as well
as a lost eminent scientist. The results
have justified their faith, and the Louisi-
ana -ugar planters have reaped a rici
reward for their investment. The im
proved methods of culture, fertilizing ano
manufacture, to say nothing of the im
provement in cane, has repaid them many
fold. I am pleased tosay that our general
government and the State of Louisiana
now contribute liberally to the support ot
"-That cane 'sugar can be produced in the
cane welt of the South for less cost thaia
beet u~gar in the West, or in Europe, cana
certainly be proven. I believe that but
a small part of the sum expended in tha
effort to establish the beet sugar in Amer
ica, intelligently used-not in experiments
-we have passed that stage years ago-
hut in demonstration of the facts as to
cost of prslouction and manufacture, woulo
!iave long since made America the prin-
cipal sugar producer of the world."
Mr. President. 1 believe the time su
long hoped for by yourself and your as-
sociates hlas come. that a new era in the
history of cane sugar production in Amer
ic is upon us. When I note the inte-est
shown by the head of the United States
Agricultural Department. that eminently
practical farmer. broad-minded agricultu-
rist. and far-seeing statesman, the Hon-
orable .lames Wilson. Secretary of Agri
culture; Dr. H. WV. Wiley. Chief of the
Chemical Bureau of the Agricultural De-
partment, and Prof. W. C. Stubbs, Di-
rector of the nouisiana Sugar Experimen-
tal Stations, and remember that they were
with us at our first meeting in Macon, 1
feel that the long period of waiting for
recognition of the intrinsic value of thin
peculiarly Southern production has passed,
and that the sugarcane of the Gulf States
will now receive that careful, scientific
care and culture and official recognition
of its value that has so long given to its
humble relative e t e eet, which has for
years enjoyed the protective care of omu
own and European governments, and hadl
the consideration of the most eminent
scientists, agriculturists and statesmen ot
both continents, to assist in its develop-
ment. Now that cane has attracted the
attention of statesmen. scientists, and
business men. I have no fear of the re-"li

developed and the business has grown t4.
enormous proportions. I believe that re
-ent results in cane culture justify me in
predicting a far great r development iit
can, culture. That sugarcane is suscep-
tible of vast improvement by careful selec-
tion and intelligent culture has always
been my contention, though in its r.-tural
-tate it has always been. and is now su-
perior to the most improved varieties of
beets for sugar making.
Recent results in Louisiana under the
practical and scientific direction of Dr.
Stubbs have demonstrated the correct-
ness of these claims made by myself, that
with less cost and labor, and in far shorter
time, greater improvements could be ex-
:)ected from intelligent efforts to improve
a natural sugar plant, than one not orig-
inal!y a true sugar producer. The results
if the work at the Louisiana Sugar Ex-
;erimental Station, covering a period ot
anly ten years, in canebreeding and se
sectionn have recently been published.
In an interview with the New Orleans
Times-Demnocrat. Prof. Stubbs says: "Six
years ago we received a large number ot
various canes from Trinidad. We prompt-
ly began to experiment. We tried to as-
certain which cane was best adapted foi
this climate. We made a score or more
experiments and carefully compared the
results. We wanted to get a cane that
would find ready and congenial growth
here in Louisiana, and that would at the
same time increase the sugar output foi
the acreage in this State.
"I am delighted to say that our pati-
ence has at length been rewarded. We
now have two kinds of cane that are
highly successful. They are unquestion-
ably a great deal more satisfactory than
the best cane known here for many years.
In my opinion, they are the most valuable
canes that can be grown in Louisiana soil.
They make what our agricultural experts
call an ideal specimen. We have classi-
fied them as 'D 95' and 'D 74.'
"To the lay public there is nothing ex-
ceedingly significant in those words 'D 74.
but to the sugar planter they will be
nothing less than startling. This cane
produces thirty-eight tons to the ae.
The juice yields 16 per cent of sugar.
Under a nine-roller mill 81 per cent is
obtained without saturation.
"If you wil compare these figures with
statistics of ra-e now grown you wf-_l,
realize that this new cane will revolution-
ize the sugar industry in Louisiana. The
old cane gives an acreage of thirty to
thirty-one tons, with a 12 per cent. yield
in the juice. Under the roller it gives a
per centage of 71.
"The new cane is long-joitted, greens,
perfectly healthy and beautiful in appear-
ance. It has an excellent stubble and re-
markable vigor. It withstood the tenrife

A BIG PLANT.
When the Merrill-Stevens Engineering
Company of this city decided to increase
their capital, they already had the largest
ship building and machinery plant on the
coast; the demands on their works were,
however, greater than they could attendto
and so they raised their capital from $50,-
000 to $500,000, and changed the company's
name to the Merrill-Stevens Company. The
officers of tile company are A. D. Stevens,
President; C. R. Merrill, Vice-President.
J. E Merrill. Treasurer, and Frederick
Seeley, Secretary. The new company
found itself in possession of splendidly
equipped workshops, foundry and machine
ery rooms, two marine railways; in fact,
what most people would have considered a
big enough plant for anyone, but improve-
ments were at once commenced, new ma-
chinery erected, new facilities created, and
plans perfected tor a dry dock of the latest
construction. It is interesting to watch
the hundreds of employees at work, ma-
chines clanging everywhere, steam ham
mers pounding, drills perforating steel as
if'it was paper, and yet everything done
without any confusion. The Merrill-Stev-
ens Company have just completed a large
dredge for the U. S. Government, they
have a second already launched and soont
to be completed. Work is being hastened
on the new ferry boat and all the time
tugs and vessels are being repaired and re-
fitted. The plant is the largest industrial
concern in Jacksonville, and one that its
citizens are proud of. By the time deep
water has been given to Jacksonville, the
channel largely dug by the Merrill-Stev-
ens dredges, the dry dock will be ready
to handle any ocean liner that may call at

representatives of chambers of commerce
in the leading cities of Florida, Georgia
South and North Carolina and Penn-yl-

most central point. The convention will
take action looking to the advancement .
of legislation in behalf of the waterway

that was not blown either flat or partly
down to the ground. It was not damaged

"We are rtady and willing, to furnisti
this cane to any planter who may apply
for it. We expect to send out more thai.
five hundred bundles in the next f'ew
weeks. Requ-sts for the cane are coming
in on every nail. We shall begin to shiI.
the cane in a few days. Planters through-

have strong faith in the new specimens.
Next week we shall send some of the cane
to the experiment stations in Cuba ano

In the "Louisiana Planter and Sugai
Manufacturer" of February 20th appears
the report of Prof. R. E. Blouin. Assist-
ant Director of the I uisiana Sugar Ex
perimnent Station. of the results of this
wcrk in the development and distribution
of these two se-dling canes, selected front
hundreds of seedlings with which they
have experimented; not only the results
obtained at the Station, scientifically ana
experimentally but the field results ot
numbers of our foremost sugar planters
who have cultivated these canes on a comr
mercial scale under ordinary field condi-
These results are truly phenomenal, and
prove beyond cavil the truth of the as-
sumption that the tonnage and sugar con-
tent of the cane plant can, and has been,
increased in as great a ratio as ever the
beet has. and that the continued strife for
excellence will give us a plant as far su
perior to the original cane plant, as com-
monly grown, as the sugar beet of tht
present day is to the original type. This
report is of too great length to be quoted
here. All those into -ested should procure
the report and study it. I simply sum
marize the results as given by Prof. Blouil.
and follow his figures as to the final re-

they now prevail; that these profits can,
be largely increased by the intelligent co-
operation of the Agricultural Department
and Experimental Stations, working along
the lines and following the lead of the
Louisiana Sugar Experimenta' Station, in
the development of the plai.t, and im-
provement in methods of manufacture.
That the sugarcane will in the near fu
ture replace the beet as the most econom-
ical source of sugar I have no doubt. I an,
convinced that only apathy and false se-
curity, felt by the canegrower, his neglect
of scientific and economical methods, to
gether with the careful, economical ana
aggressive methods of the beet grower.
backed by Government aid and encourage
ment, in this and European countries, has
temporarily increased the world's supply
of beet sugar as compared to cane sugar.
That the cane belt of the South can,
under the same intelligent system ot
culture and manufacture, exercising the
same care and economy, as in beet culture
and manufacture; produce pure sugar at
a profit when selling at a price less than
the cost of producing beet sugar undei
the most favorable conditions, I believe
can, and will, be demonstrated in the neal
future, and that the American cane grower
will supply not only tue enormous home
demand, but a large part of the foreign
That others besides myself are of thib
same opinion is evidenced by this gather-
ing of representative farmers, cane grow-
ers and business men of the New South,
from the Brazos to the St. Johns, from
Carolina to the Keys, this gathering cer-
tainly shows that the cane grower of the
South has awakened to the possibilities ot
the profitable commercial production ol
sugar in the cane belt of America.
Growing Exports of Manufactures.
Statistics just published by the De-
partment of Commerce and Labor show
that exports of American manufactured
goods are increasing satisfactorily in near-
ly all important lines, no less than twenty-
two articles or groups, the annual ex
ports of which amount to more than $1,
000,000 each, showing increases while only
seven similar groups show declines. Tht
aggregate value of the articles in which
important gains were recorded amount
for the first nine months of the fiscal
year ending June 30th, 1904, to $280,000,-
000, while the aggregate value of the arti-
cles showing declines was only $36,000,000
for the corresponding period.
The articles or groups of articles which
show an increase are iron and steel man-
ufactures; mineral oils, copper, leather
and manufactures; agricultural imple-
ments, chemicals, drugs and dyes; manu
factures of wood, cars and carriages, paper
and its manufactures, scientific instru-
ments, manufactures of fibers, manufac-
tures of india rubber, clocks and watches,
paints and oils, gunpowder and other ex-
plosives, brassand manufactures thereof,
soap, marble and stone manufactures;
wool manufactures, jewelry, lamps and
chandeliers, and sugar and confectionery.
The articles or groups showing a decrease
in exportation are cotton manufactures,
paraffine, tobacco, books, maps and en-
gravings, musical instruments, distilled
spirits and glass and glassware.
The twenty-nine articles or groups ol
articles whose exportation is thus com
pared with that of last year include about
95 per cent of the total exports of man.

largely in cotton cloths, of which the price

THE CANAL CONVENTION.
Bomb-Shell Thrown nto the Camp the Sec
The business men of Tampa recently
called a convention of representative men
from all over the South to meet in that
city on the 4th inst. It was attended
by a strong body of financiers and others
directly interested in the blessings expect-
ed to flow from the construction of the
Panama Canal. The first day was occu-
pied in bouquet throwing, and everything
passed off smoothly. The next day, how-
ever, Mr. Porch, chairman, of New Or-
leans, threw a bomb into the assembly
by the introduction of a series of reso-
lutions declaring that New Orleans vwa
the only city capable of handling the great
traffic consequent upon the canal's being
built, and advocating the formation ot
a stock t-ompany to be subscribed foi
throughout the South, whose headquarters
should Ze at New Orleans, and whose
steamships should sail to and from New
Orleans. Objections were made by Gen
eral Gilchrist, of Punta Gorda and by
Capt Garner of this city. Capt. (;arnei
thought it proper that the New Orleans
Board of Trade should adopt the resolu-
tions, but thought the Convention should
not endorse any resolutions that would
not meet with the approval of the entire
South. The South Atlantic cities should
have something to say when the time
comes to act on that question. The reso-
lutions were amended, declaring it to be
a good business proposition and advising
the Southern people to invest in it. As
amended the resolutions were passed.
Resolutions were then passed favorable
to the construction of the proposed Flor-
ida Ship Canal.
A committee was appointed consisting
of Ex-Senator Pasco, J. W. Porch, C. E.
Garner. W. R. Fuller, M. W. Cooper, J.
W. Greer and Charles Scott to recommend
a plan that will give effect to the resolu
tions about the Panama Canal. They re-
ported, recommending the formation of a
Panama Canal Commercial League, to be
composed of members of commercial or
ganizations in the Southern States who
will aid in its purposes and contribute to
its treasury. T~he committee's recommend-
ations were adopted, and the plan will be
gone more into detail at the next meeting
of the association, to be called hereafter
by the executive committee.
ARAGON HOTEL, JACKSONVILLE.
Turpentine and saw mill men will glad-
ly hail the news that H. N. O'Neal has
lea--ed the Aragon Hotel, of Jacksonville,
fcr a term of years. He is well and fa-
vorably known through the Southeastern
States and there can be no doubt but that
he will be largely patronized by our read-
ers. Mr. O'Neal is making extensive and
expensive alterations, in fact making i
new hotel of the place. He has determined
to run it all the year round on the Amen-
can plan and intends to make his visitors
so comfortable that they will be sure to
return to him. The Aragon will make a
special effort to meet the wants of the
commercial travelers and large improve-
me nts are now being made in the sample
rooms. In fact, if money, knowledge,
courtesy and good treatment will fill the
Aragon, Mr. O'Neal intends it shall be
filled every day in the year.
Captain D. G. Purse, president of the
(anal Growers' Association which recently
met in annual convention in this city, told
a reporter of the Savannah News on his
return home that no place has yet been
selected for the next annual convention,
but that he thought it would be held at
Montgomery, Ala. The matter will be
definitely settled within the next ten days.
Continuing, lie said to the News reporter:
What promises to be one of the greatest
benefits as the outcome of the last conven-
tion was the appointment of a committee
to further the interest of Georgia syrup
by introducing it into new territory, ani
thereby increasing the demand for it. A
regular campaign will be planned and car-
ried out systematically. The main idea is
to have large houses dealing direct with
the consumers handle and introduce the
Georgia cane product. The committee con-
sists of W. B. Roddenberry, of Cairo, Ga.,
1J. A. Cranford of Jacksonville and C. G.
Abercrombie of Montgomery.
"An important resolution that was
adopted by the convention was that in-
troduced by Dr. J. M. Spence, calling on
all syrup-producing States to pass a pure
syrup bill. Much interest was manifested
in the samples of the paper and cardboard
that have been made from bagasse, but
it is hardly expected that the manufacture
of bagasse will be started on any large
scale until machinery has been -ecured for
the economic handling of the material."
JACKSONVILLE COOPERAGE CO.
As our Ieaders are aware, the Jackson-
ville (Cooperage (Company, of Jacksonville.
Fla has recently been organized, its cap-
ital largely increased and its factories en
large. The oflfieirs of the the company
now are: W. T. Riley, President; J. A. G.
Carson, of the J. P. Williams Co., vice
president. and Geo..1. Seovel, secretary and
The company's plant is located most
centrally on the railroad at Eighth street.
and at present consists of a large hand
factory, which is getting more orders than.
it can supply; near it a large building has
been erected in which is being installed
the most complete machine barrel making
plant in the South; near it the boiler and
engines are already ready to do their part.
Mr. Scovel expects to have the new plant
in operation in a very few days and will
then have a combined output that wil;
satisfactorily meet demands. The corn
pany has its own dry kiln there so that its
oak can ie redried before going through
the manufacturing process. It is the
building of such enterprises that make a
city and J.acksonville may be glad that this
company is completing so complete 1i
plant. The old company was well know
and favorably thought of, the new one
with increased capital and much more elab-
orate manufacturing plant, will easily not
only hold its predecessor's reputation, but
add to it. Secretary Scovel is very posi-
tive in stating that none but the very
best material wil be used and none but
the very best barrels shipped by his com-

REVIVAL OF SHIPBUILDING.
The country is on the eve of a great
revival in shipbuilding. Tih rapidity with
which we have forged to the front as a
first-class world power is demanding more
American bottoms. It is time to call a
halt on foreign bottoms carrying Amer
ican freights from American ports to othci
ports now owned by America.
There is indeed a better day dawning
for the American shipbuilder. There is ;.
wider market opening for the Americain
shipowner. He that anticipates the open
ing of the market is the one to reap the
lion's share of the harvest. The important
thing is to be ready when the doors t<,
the Phillippines and to Panama are opeli
From every point of view, now is the
time to place orders for ships.
Moreover, there exists, and will always
exist, the necessity for the replacement
of tonnage through the natural wastage or
Ships will not last forever, and many
of them are now ready for the ship lone
yard. We need new ships, not only for
our increased demand, but to take the
place of the old ships now carrying their
One must also consider that the mat
ket for the American ship is widening.
Already the coast laws have been ex-
tended to include the Piillippine Islands.
which means that every pound of freight,
transported between the United States ana
the Philippines and between the Phillip
pines and the United States must be car-
ried in a vessel built in thl- United States.
This trade is already considerable and is
growing by leaps and bounds. Two years
hence, which is the time when the coast
laws will embrace the Phillippinm s, it will
probably have trebled. The demand foi
supplies in a primeval country. such as,
is the Phillippines, increases in a sort ot
geometrical progression with the advance
of civilization. The Phillippines are to Ib
exploited. Railways are to be built thert
and enterprises of all sorts are to be a
tablished. Both production and consume ,
tion in the islands will vastly increase.
which is equivalent to saying that both,
the imports and exports must inevitable)
All this means work for the American
ship. here are probably American ships
enough in existence to care for this over-
sea interchange of products as it exists
to-day, but there are not enough for the
trade of two years hence. Consequently,
ships must me built, and now is the time
to build them. Moreover. the trade to
the United States ports via the Isthmus
of Panama is coastwise trade. In addi-
tion the movement to include the actual
canal zone itself within the coasting laws
has already crystalized in a bill, and
there is assurance that it will be passed
at the next session of Congress. This
means that the enormous consumption
that the construction of this canal will
entail must go forward in American ships.
It is impossible to overestimate the im-
portance of this commerce, for ii will
mean a constant stream of supplies fo.
a period of eight years. The leverage
that this will afford in the struggle of
capital to gain South American markets,
both on the eastern and western coasts,
wll lie ilmiiense. To have a halfway stop
an assured thing makes conquest of ports
further on a reasonably sure thing. This
is one great advantage that arises from
the extension of the coastwise laws to
the Phillippines. It will make the trade
to China. Japan and the Orient more easy
of acquisition; and the same must be truek
in regard to South American ports by re-
serving the Panama canal trade exclusive-
ly to American vessels.
Here, then, are certain markets for
American ships. These ships have got to
be built. There is no way out of it. It.
is better to build then now than to wait,
for at present both labor and capital
are stable. A ship costs a certain sunm
to-day; it is likely to cost more a year or
MAY DAY STRIKES.
May Day strikes were not so important
throughout the country this year as last,
but still they numbered 45,000 men, in-
cluding coal miiners in West Virginia ana
Ohio, boiler makers and shipbuilding hands
at New York, vesselmen on the lakes, ma-
chinists in railway shops in the south-
west and general building hands at a
number of cities. Strikes of bakers at
('Chicago and Boston have caused the ship-
inent of large quantities of bread from
other cities. From January 1 to date
about 170.000 men have struck, or about
half the number striking up to the same
late in 1903.
The Hon. Robert McNamee, who is
known by every turpentine man in Florida
as being the author of the infamous Me-
Naimee inspection bill. which was over-
whelmingly d feattal in the last legis.la
ture. has just been defeated for Congress
in the First District by an equally over-
whelming majority. Congressman Spark
man. who has served the people faithfully
and well in that district for several years,
has been rnominated in the primary by
a imo-t gratifying vote. It is safe to say
that every turpentine operator in the First
District opposed Mr. McNamee and this
positionn to him had a tremendous ffeetc
at the polls. The Record was satisfieol
early in the campaign that the business
interests of that great section of Florida
did not want Mr. McNamee in Congress.

IP YOU ARE PROGRESSIVM, ADVERTISE IN THE RECORD.
MONEY IN CIRCULATION.
Once more the official report of total
nmnney in circulation has established a
new high record, both as to aggregate and
the per capital amount, which is $31.02 on
an estimated population of 81,637,000. A
total of $2,532,645,135 on May 1st comr
pares with $2,516,639,223 a month previous
and $2.374.353,720 a year ago. The only
significant changes for the month were
gains of $14.600,i000 in gold certificates ana
alibt $5.000.000 in gold coin and bullion.
Bank note circulation remained practically
unchanged. Including Treasury holdings
the total for the country is now at a new
high point of $2.14.g95,446, compared with
$2,808,!i0,136. on April 1. Gross gold was
$188.8.131.524,577, an increa.M- of over $3,000,-
000. notwithstanding large exports.
Returns from Tuesday's primary elect-
ion in Florida are so slow coming in that
it is impossible to say whether Capt W.
.1. llillman has been elected delegate-at-
large to the National Democratic (onven-
tion, or not. From returns already re-
ceived, however, tle indications are he has,
been elected. Certain it is that he has led
the ticket in a number of counties.
Captain Hillman entered the race as an
ininstructed candidate at the eleventh
hour. after the people had generally un-
derstood that there would be no opposition
to the Hearst instructed candidates and
his large vote is a compliment to his ster-
Captain Hillman is one of Florida's
most prosperous naval stores men.
The Record believes that the business
interests of Florida generally rejoice at
the nomination of James P. Taliaferro
to succeed himself in the United State,,
Senate. The primary election on Tues-
day demonstrated the will of the people
in such a convincing manner that the mis-
guided leaders of the opposition should
realize that any policy of populism, social-
ism and anarchy is forever stamped out
Cummer Lumber Co.
This company from its first advent here
has always held the foremost place in the
rank of lumler mills. Aocated at Pan
a ma Park on the beautiful St. Johns, tin-
plant stands as a model of what a mill
should be. In addition to the sawmill
itself, there are dry kilns. planing mills,
a large Iox and crate factory and a ship-
building yard, all working along in hart
inony. There are plenty. of millmen com-
plaining just now of a scarcity of orders.
but the Cummer company y are running
full time in all their departments and
their planing mill is now running day ani
night to fill orders just booked by Mi.
A. G. C( Cummer on his last trip to Ne w
York. Even their box and crate factory,
only just completed, has all the orders it
can cope with. It is quite evident that
the hard times that are so much feared
in presidential years will fall lightly on
Panama Park alnd its 700 employees.
It must he added that since the Messrs.
C'ummer :settled here. they have left notih-
ing undone to advance the inter-sts or
the country they are in. They are prom-
vnent members of the Board of Trade ann
che.rrfully support any plan that seems
t promise gain to Florida.
Saw Mill Man's Protet.
May, 10, 1904.
Editor Industrial Record:
Dear Sir: I see that some weeks ago
you published an account of a proposed
bureau of inspection and on the represen-
tation of its Iackers, pronounced it good.
For a fact it does look like a good sug-
gestion. but-like a green persimmon-
it looks better than it tastes. Mr. Editor,
I know that you always intend to have
tle Record on the side of the producer
and therefore ask you to allow this pro-
test to go on record. The proposed new
rule was introduced in the Sawmill Men's
Association by a middleman. It is won-
derful. Mlr. Editor, how anxious middle-
mien always are to benefit other people-
never themselves. So philanthropic have
they been in this connection-or so per-
sistent in tlwir efforts at supremacy-
that to-day, at the meetings of this As-
sociation, intended solely for millmen or
producers, nine-tenths of the talking is
lone by men who, while technically mill-
owners, are really lumber brokers. In
others words, attempts are made to run
the Sawmill Men's Association by the very
I oplle whose interest it is to make money
out of them. Hence this proposed rule.
It aims to place another tax on the unfor-
tunate lumber maker and save inspection
expense to the buyer. That's the whole
thing in a nutshell. Even then, the major-
ity of lumber brokers are averse to the
rule. considering it unfair and not needed.
In Fernandina a meeting was promptly
held to denounce the proposed rule, in
Jacksonville. I understand, a majority is
against it. In fact, it seems to have been
intalroduced to help one or two jobbers out
of some difficulty or other.
Mr. Edtior, when the Sawmill Associa-
tion ceases to be under the influence ot
half a dozen jobbers and when the man in
the woods does his own legislating, then
will the Association, already possessing
a wise sawmill man as President, grow
until it will be in a position to dictate
to the brokers instead of being ruled by
them. May that day soon come.

SWhen The Day's Work s Over,
Bull Run or Manassas.
(By James R. Randall.)
The sham fight to be inaugurated on
the historic field of Bull Run or Manassas
will no doubt revive many recollections
and discussions' of that famous contest.
along with other issues of the war be-
tween the States. The rout of the Federal
army was much greater than that the
Japanese recently inflicted upon the Rus-
sians. There will always be dispute about
the failure to follow up the victory b)
the Confederates. One serious mistake
pointed out by General Beauregard, who
favored an advance, was in the Richmond
administration's failure to procure a fleet
in London and an abundance of small
arms. The East India fleet of arned
steamers were procurable for $10,000,000
at a great bargain, and the supply ot
small arms easily obtainable. We had
the cotton to pay for them; but tile com-
missions sent to England were either ham-
pered at headquarters or wanting in sense.
A hundred thousand volunteers were lost
initially, for want of arms and enthu
asm was paralyzed.
Another grievous error was in scatter-
ing our forces. Stonewall Jackson ad-
vised the concentration of two mighty
armies, East and West, and letting the
rest of the country take care of itself.
We had to win quickly or not at all.
When it became a war of waiting or pro
longation, with dissipated strength on the
coast, the cause was lost, for the North
not only had a vast population to drawt
upon but the whole of Europe for a re
cruiting ground, while we were sealed up,.
practically, by the Federal navy. Lan-
don Knight, in the Pilgriml. -sl.us up thus.
"In the fall of 1861 Mlr. Daivis was elect-
ed president of the Confederate States foi
a term of six years, and on the 21st ot
February in tile following year he was
inaugurated. This message may hardly
he called a state paper, as it was devotenl
rather to a capitulation of the events ot
tlie war than to discussion of measures
or the recommendation of policies. Tin
tone of the message was hopeful, for, not-
withstanding the fall of Forts Donelsonl
and Henry, and the evacuation of Bowl-
ing Green. the fortunes of war were de-
cidedly with the South. However, in those
catastrophes, which Mr. Daavis passed
lightly over, the ablest general in the
Southern army saw the first results ot
the fatal policy of attempting with limit-
edl resources to defend every threatened
point of a vast irregular frontier reach-
ing from tile Rio Grande to the Potomanc.
The 300,000 men in the Confederate arlni
at that time could have captured Wash-
ington or localized tie whole Federal army
in its defense, but scattered over more
than 1,500 miles, strength was dissipated,
and at every point they were too weak
to attempt more than a defensive policy.
I'ponI this point, however, Mr. Davis was
inflexible, and absolutely refused to aban-
don any place however insignificant front
a strategic point of view, even when tile
soldiers holding it might have been u-eu
most effectively elsewhere."
Ilad Albert Sidney Johnston possessed
an army of 75,000 at Shiloh, Grant and
his whole force would have been captured.
Colonel (laiborne Snead is confident tuat
had General Lee listened to Stonewall
.laekson and followed up the great victor '
at Fredericksburg. Burnside and his w hole
It was this fatal policy of diffusion
and delay that enabled the North to pro-
cure nearly 500,000 European mercenaries,
182,000 negroes and 300,000 Southern To-
ries in arms.
General Toonlbs' remark that the South
"'wore herself out whipping tile Northerhn
armies" had an element of fact and Mir.
Stephens used to say that "had Stonewall
Jackson been in supreme command, in the
field, tle war would have ended, one way
or another in a year."
Of course there is much to be said on
the other side of the controversy, and we
are not disposed to disparage the great
leaders who performed wonderful deeds
and who survive in the "Pantheon of
Famne.'" But, to our mind, the most il-
luminating sook on the war is that ot
generall Beauregard, who, despite his prej-
udices and personal grievances, knew how,
as a great strategist, to point out unerr-
ingly why tile Confederacy failed.
However, it is past history and tlhe
South is emerging from all of her disas-
ters, and, more and more, the conserva-
tive men East and West, are agreeing
that the fundamental principle of tlhe
South, Constitutional Liberty and local
,elf-governuient are still the cornerstones
of the temple of liberty, erected by the
Fathers of the Republic. 'Tis the Cause,
not the fate of the Cause, that is glor-

22 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
During the nine months ending March
last this country exported 1,093,500 M feet
of lumber, the export price being $21,749,-
572. We have not the data at hand, but
from what is generally known as to yel-
low pine's taking the place of other lum-
bers within the past few years, it is safe
to say that at least one-half of this was
yellow pine. It was shipped to the fol-
lowing countries in the following propor-
tions: United Kingdom, 157,615 M feet;
Belgium, 35,343 M feet; France, 22,744 M
feet; Germany, 55,521 M feet; Italy, 16,-
441 M feet; Netherlands, 68,952 M feet.
Other Europe, 29,194 M feet; Canada 118,-
230 M feet; Central America, 5,011 M feet,
Cuba, 65,284 M feet; Mexico, 95,776 M
feet; other West Indies, 31,574 feet; Ar-
gentina, 11,659 M feet; Brazil, 24,890 M
feet; Chile, 26,047 M feet; other South
America, 41,504 M feet; Chinese Empire,
19.565 M feet; Japan, 1,775 M feet; Aus-
tralia, 75,451 M feet; Phillippine Islands,
22.943 M feet; Africa, 66,465 M feet.
We want Planters "Old Time" Remediks
