The beginning of Tampa goes back to
the days when Narvae and DeSoto, the
two famous Spanish adventurers, landed on
ad near its site to begin their conquest
of the continent and the acquisition of
unlimited treasure. They failed lament&

substantial than maps and names of the

them by the then inhabitants of the city
was not of a kind with that which is now
uniformly extended to invaders. For the
ensuing three hundred years the barbarous
Indian possessed this fine region in peace,

but the whole of it is well fitted for both
fruit culture and farming. This is the cen-
ter of the great orange, pomelo and pine-
apple production of Florida, and large
fortunes await those who will engage in it
with skill, prudence and energy.
Winter truck farming finds here its best
'field and greatest profits. The kindly cli-
mate, suitable soil and unequalled trans-
portation facilities, make this an unri-
valled region for this light and wholesome
avocation. It may be embarked upon with
the smallest capital, and every one strong
enough to wield a hoe may be a candi-
date for its benefits. Lands are cheap
and the other inducements are unequalled
anywhere in the world.
Sport and Recreation.
In this department of public interest
Tampa and vicinity stand without a rival.
The pursuit of game may be indulged in
every day of the season without encoun-
tering any extreme of weather which
would forbid. Deer, turkeys, quail, squir-
rels, snipe, ducks and scores of other ob-
jects of the sportsman's gun abound in
profusion and are easily reached from the
city or any one of the twenty or thirty
neighboring villages of sufficient size to
afford the hunter suitable headquarters.
Not only is game plentiful, but guides are
reliable and all accommodations are reas-
onable. All the surrounding country is
free to the visiting sportsman, no license
being required, and he meets with a cordial
reception, being perfectly welcome to
shoot all he wants to-provided he does
not overstep the law which limits the
number of deer, turkey and quail that may
be brought down by one gun.
It is in fishing, however, that this sec
tion justly prides itself as being without
equal iLthe world. The waters in the vi-
eini'tyLae of every variety, from the deep
ni ro"lf iig Gulf to the fresh water lakes
which are the home of the bass and bream.
Wide bays and winding straits and passes
afford the calmev surface for boating by
sail or oar, and are the home of countless
millions of the finest and gamiest of fish.
And at the same time the necessary bait
is afforded by the same waters. There
are literally hundreds of miles of the most
perfect fishing waters, surrounded by
smooth and smiling beaches, with unnum-
bered spots which entice to eamp and
rest, with abundance of fuel and other
accessories. Nowhere can life outdoors be
made so ple-at a- here.
For the hoMer angler there are the lordly
tarpon, the virile king-fish, the splendid
sea bass and other of kindred size and
gaminess. For the gentler and more timid
sex there are scores of kinds of beautiful
mnd toothMome denizens of the shallower
wterer-whome pursuit and capture will
atiadi tl gratify her desire for this
most exhilarating and health-giving sport.
Oysters, crabs and clams reward easy
search, and in short there is no form of
athletic or gustatory appetite which can-
not here be satisfied to perfection.
To Make Inquiry.
All persons who may wish to obtain
further particulars about this attractive
city and section can do so by addressing
inquiries to the Board of Trade. All quer-
ies will be promptly, courteously and relia-
bly answered. Information on every sub-
ject will be furnished, and it will be taken
as a favor if any one desiring it will apply.
Address the Board of Trade.
The Mineral Paint and Varnish Works.
The sanitary condition of homes and
public buildings is mainly due to the paint
that is used, and we, therefore, from our
knowledge of what we speak, strongly ad-
vise all in using paints or varnishes to
procure only those brands which are ground
in pure linseed oils and which can be
highly recommended. Thus it is that in
mentioning the name of The Mineral Paint
and Varnish Works whose proprietor is W.
D. Wiggins. No further notice from us
would be necessary, were it not for the
fact that we desire to give ourselves the
pleasure of saying that the "Panther
Brand" of paints, which he manufactures,
is of the highest grade possible. A spec-
ial and noticeable feature of his business
is that none but experienced and high-sal-
aried men are employed on painting and
paper-hanging work, which is a very im-
portant item when considered in its true
light. The close attention given to every
detail intrusted to his charge, together
with his well known courtesy to all, has
made for him a host of warm personal
friends and acquaintances in the city that
rejoice at his continued success in busi-
The Hillsborough Grocery Co.
Among the many wholesale enterprises
of Tampa may be mentioned in particular
one doing an enormous grocery business in
Provisions, Grain and Feed Stuffs. We
allude with great pleasure to that fine
wholesale store occupied by the Hillsbor-
ough Grocery Company, its president being
B. F. Bullard, its vice-president and gen-
eral manager, L. J. Cooper, and its secre-
tary Bernice K. Bullard. These gentle-
len are without doubt sagacious and suc-
cessful business factors in the building
up of one of Tampa's most commendable
enterprises as proved by the enormous
output made by them during the past
twelve months. The business enjoyed is
by no means local, but extending through
the Southern portion of the State. The
firm are ever ready to accept orders and
complete same with dispatch to the
satisfaction of its patrons. It is upon this
basis that the success of the business has
been built, and the appreciation by the
trade of this fine, progressive firm is
shown in the fact of so largely an increased
patronage, which time has brought about,
together with the never failing courtesy
extended by their energetic manager, L.
J. Cooper, to all when visiting their ware-
Mayor F. A. Salomonson.
To attempt to give a true expression of
the high esteem in which Tampa's chief
executive is held by his fellow citizens
would indeed be a somewhat difficult task,
something like attempting to paint the lily
or to regild fine gold, for there can be no
doubt whatever but that Mayor F. A. Sal-
omonson is beloved by all of Tampa's no-
ble sons and fair daughters.
His administration has been remarka-
bly successful and one that will ever be
associated with the history of the city.
Under his regime many improvements have
been completed and numerous other im-
provements inaugurated. In his adminis-
tration he has the hearty co-operation of
the council, which has made one of the
strongest and most substantial govern-
ments the people have ever had, and that
he is the right man in the right place is
proved every moment of the day by the
manyan nd various expressions of pleas-
ure heard from the numerous visitors who
had come in contact with him in his official
capacity as head of Tampa's "Queen of
the South," for his unfailing and uniform
courtesy to all.

W. R. Fller & Co
No man in the world is better acquaint-
ed with the affairs of Tampa, or of iti
rich contiguous territory, or closer in touch.
Switch its people than W. I. Fuller, Tampa's
Snoble president of the Board of Trade.
Mr. Fuller has worked himself to the
front in the army of industrial Floridians,
who have carried the State triumphantly
through succeeding periods of calamity
and depression into the full and clear light
of its present commercial prestige anm
-promise. Among those who have devoted
themselves to advancing the interests of
Tampa and its wonderful territory, Mr.
Fuller holds a place of preferment hard to
equal, and as president of the Board of
Trade no man is more beloved, not only
for the immense amount of work that he
yearly gives Tampa, advancing it step by
step to the proud position it now holds,
but whenever a movement for the general
benefit and advancement of the community
is projected, Mr. Fuller is one of the first
men whose aid is enlisted. And it may
be said his assistance, always so intelli-
gently directed, has been indispensable to
more than one plan for the improvement
and development of Tampa and South
Florida. The business of W. R. Fuller &
Co., in grain and fruits is an enormous
one, the inrease these past few years
proving that where a concern has as its
directors men of untiring diligence, rich
with the wisdom of long experience and
possessing the entire confidence and es-
teem of their associates, as Mr. Fuller
does, it progress and success is, of course,
only to be expected. The firm of W. R.
Fuller & Co. consists of Capt. Carnes,
Mr. Fuller and Mr. Jackson, who have been
in the State twenty years, none better
understanding the peculiar needs of Flor-
ida's people in distributing. Their ware
houses are splendidly located for this pur-
pose, being "on the rail" and "in the wa-
ter," as it were, and as wholesale distrib-
uters of building and crate materials, fer-
tilizers, groceries and fruit, as well as
brick, lime and cement, their three
branches, playing an important part oi
The firm are also agents for Capt. Gac-
ner's splendid line of steamers, and have
lately disposed of many carloads of the
celebrated "Rubberroid Roofiing,' 'as well
as 300 carloads of crate material and mil-
lions of brick. In conclusion, we should bi
certainly doing an injustice to Mr. Jack-
son if we omitted mentioning how greatly
we are indebted to him, not only for these
brief particulars, but for the great cour-
tesy shown our correspondent. Without
doubt Mr. Jackson makes the company a
good, conscientious and honorable menm-
her, always guarding its interests, and
ever on the side of progress and develop-

The H. Bomford Plumbing and Supply Co.
Success, to a large extent, in every
branch of industry, depends upon the in-
telligent proficiency which involves a thor-
ough knowledge of all the minute details
embraced therein. Combining these char-
acteristics in an eminent degree and tran-
sacting an extensive trade (the annual ag-
gregate of which is a very significant
item in the general total of the city's com-
merce) stands the fine firm of the H. Bomn.
ford Plumbing & Supply Co., 111-113 Laf-
ayette Street, Tampa, whose president is
J. S. Craft, vice-president and manager,
H. Bomford, and directors, Messrs. Perry
D. Wall and A. W. Price, who is secretary
also. Energy, enterprise and shrewd na-
tive ability will always take precedence
and assume a prominent position in the
first rank. Such an establishment have
we in the one whose manager is so ener-
getic and courteous a man of business.
This fine firm has now been incorporated
eighteen years, and consequently are well
known for Plumbers' Supplies, Gas En-
gines, Acetylene Generators and Puimps.
They have gasoline engines, both station-
ary and marine, and have a large trade
in gas generators, and are contractors for
high-grade sanitary plumbing, steam-heat-
ing, etc., and what we must not omit men-
tioning to our readers is that they are
agents for J. B. Colt & Co., one of the
most prominent manufacturers in the
State. They also have had large govern-
ment contracts, consequently all orders,
as well aa mail orders, placed in their
hands will receive prompt and careful at-
Compieuous amongst the very great
number of clear Havana cigar manufac-
turers that are to be see in Ybor City
and West Tampa stands one firm preemi-
nent among the rest. We allude to the
fine factory of J. M. Martinez, manufac-
turer of elear Havana cigars, his leading
clear Havana brand being the "Norma
S;M er" eigar, which has gained an ex-
:-* lr eVputation throughout the State
Sid Europe, also, as being one of the finest
clear Havana cigars made in either West
Tampa or Ybor City. Mr. Martinez started
eight years ago with two men; to-day he
is working 200 steadily, each departmer
being in the hands of members of the firm,
who have spent a lifetime in the business
of making lear Havana cigars. The firm
is composed of J. M. Martinez, A. A. Mar-
tines and W. J. Webb. Their leading
brands, beside the Norma Martinez, are
the Garantiza and the La Bengalear and
it has been through the energy and enter-
prise of the members of the frm that it
stand to-day pre-eminently among the
knowledge to be the purest, exhilarating,
invigorating and most health-giving of all
drinks. In fact, by the last analysis, it
has been declared "absolutely pure," its
chemical test showing that it was entirely
free from adulteration, artificial preserva-
tives and impurities. The Coca-Cola Bot-
tling Co. is managed by that energetic
manager, Sidney B. Sharpe, whose close at-
tention to the wishes and orders of all
t'-ir customers has in no small degree
heledl to make the output of this favor-
ite drink an enormous one.
Tampa Hardware Co.
Tampa is the recognized center of mler-
cantile activity, and no interest has at-
tained such a remarkable degree of devel
opmient as the wholesale hardware busi-
ness, and prominent among her most act-
ive, enterprising and successful houses en
gaged in this line of trade, is that of the
Tampa Hardware Co., whose turpentine,
mill and phosphate supplies, Council and
Holmes hacks and pullers are widely used
and well known. The enormous trade done
b y this firm during the past twelve months
is a proof that its management is in the
right hanas, nor is this in the least degree
a surprise, when one learns that it is Mr.
W. C. Thomas, whose persevering study
and close attention to the best interests
of the firm is ever noticeable, and who
as a prominent citizen, is everlastingly
pushing Tampa forward.
Tampa Foundry and Machine Co.
As men of business, we are always in-
terested to learn who are the men who
are "up and doing," who it is, so to speak,
are the builders of fair Tampa city, and it
is not difficult to know its prominent pio-
neers when we have before us the name of
the Tampa Foundry and Machine Co.
Without doubt no one can make an im-
peachment against this firm for being be-
hind the times. They are leading the way
at a quick pace in making Tampa Florida's
leading city, and when we mention the
name of W. W. Carnes, president and gen-
eral manager, J. K. Merrin, secretary and
treasurer, and Ernest Kreher, superintend-
ent, we support what we state. Their
foundry and machine shops are very large
doing an immense trade in machine, boiler-
making and repairing, and especially are
they well known throughout the State as
brass and iron founders. Their vast work
shop is a sight to be seen and we strongly
recnmmnend a visit being payed them.
Warner's Curiosity Store.
If the curio hunter does what we expect
he will do when he visits Tampa, he will
have visited Warner's Curiosity Store on
Lafayette Street. It certainly is an extra-
ordinary and rare sight to see alive as it

The Tampa Bay Bay Hotel is one of
the most luxurious and beautiful hotels of
the world and no trip to Florida resorts is
complete without a stay at the renowned
"Tampa Bay HoteL"
This magnifiesnt hotel, with its gran 4,
imposing proportions, rises from garden'
of rare tropical beauty on the sloping
green banks of the Hillsborough river
The unusual attractions offered to visitorA
at the Hotel, the unequalled climate, the
variety of healthful pastimes, makes th:-
region the Mecca of the traveler, and a.,
the development of its natural advan-
tages continues, these tourist crowds art.
increasing each season.
The "Tale of Ten Travelers" could nevir
have been written Md it not been for the
inviting comforts of European hotels. Tc
the weary and toil-worn traveler, a good,
comfortable hotel is an oasis in the desert
of travel and unrest. Hence it is an old
saying and a very true one, that a good
hotel is a city's best advertisement.
The Tampa Bay Hotel is under the
able management of that prince of enter-
tainers, Thomas J. L. Brown, a hotel man
of the wide experience and probably one
of the best known managers in the South.
After having partaken of his hospitality
it can be truly said that Mr. Thomas )
L. Brown looks after the comfort of his
guests, not merely from self interest, but
from a real pleasure in seeing others happy
and comfortable. His patience, gentleness
and courteousness have won the love of
the great public, who know a born hotel
man when they come in contact with hinm,
and he richly deserves the many flatter-
ing notices given him by the press in many
States. Long may he live and prosper, is
the wish of not only the writer, but the
thousands who have partaken of his in-
Tampa DBusine Conege.
Tampa would certainly not be complete
or properly equipped for her future greater
developments were there to be no busi-
ness college, and it is certainly to be
congratulated upon having such a magnili-
cent one, presided over by that most cour-
teous gentleman, L M. Hatton, M. A.
The Tampa Business College is certainly
one of the largest and best equipped busi-
ness and shorthand schools in the State,
if not in the entire South. Their attend-
ance of late has grown so much, which has
caused them to move itno larger and more
commodious quarters in the Krause build-
ing, their magailcent halls offering every
thing and every convenience for a higher
commercial college training. It is there-
fore we take the greatest pleasure and a
large degree of pride in bringing to the no-
tice of our readers Tampa's fine business
college, and that all parents should make
the greatest efforts for their children to
attend this beautiful institution, and so
gain a solid foundation for their future
prosperity, goes without saying.
The Exchange National Bank.
The report just presented by Secretary
Calhoun to tile Board of Trade gives a
very positive assurance that the banking
business of Tampa is on the right track
and full speed ahead. Nor is this to be
wondered at when one learns who are its
helmsmen. The amount of money depos-
ited with the Exchange National Bank
during the past year shows conclusivel,
the extraordinary progress this bank has
made, a proof positive (if proof were want-
ing) that it holds tile fullest confidence of
The resources of a city and the solidity
of its business interests are largely judge I
by the class and character of its banks
and there is no feature of its municipal
commerce that shows more positively the
unswerving and substantial growth of
Tampa than the Exchange National Bank
which with the ever courteous cashier, J.
A. Griffin, as one of its directors, is as
sure of a brilliant future.
Ludden & Bates.
There can be no recommendation more
attended with danger than in speaking
with positiveness of the value in dealing
with this or that firm for pianos or organs,
etc., if their merit is not known to he
who makes the recommend, but in bringing
before the notice of our subscribers the
name of Messrs. Ludden & Bates, we do
so with the fullest assurance that we are
recommending one of the best firms in the
State. They make, and have always made,
but one grade of piano-the best. They
have no need of any second grade pianos
to help them make money, and have the
reputation with the trade of making the
finest finished cases, using the handsomest
veneers and securing the best patents of
any firm in existence, and in speaking of
the wonderful progressive strides th's lead-
ing music house has made and is making
we refer with real pleasure to the many
orders daily being received by their man-
ager, W. C. Gaither, whom we are quite
willing to admit has by his close atten
tion to the wants and wishes of all their
customers, coupled with the most cour-
teous and genial manners, made an excep-
tional success for Messrs. Ludden & Bates.

A Veritable Love Feast of City Pride at
Tampa Board of Trade Annual Meeting.
In the presence of a large throng of
leading gentlemen and ladies of the city,
the Tampa Board of Trade held its annual
meeting in the music room of the Tampa
Bay Hotel last week, prior to a splendid
reception and banquet given in their honor
by Manager T. J. L Brown.
President W. B. Fuller, who was unani-
mously elected to a third term as the
head of the Board of Trade, delivered his
annual address to the Board prefaced by
his stereotyped statement that he is no
speaker, which he always proceeds to
effeetually contradict by his force and style
of speaking. Mr. Fuller referred in a gen-
eral and very comprehensive manner to
the manufactures of Tampa, the prospects
for deep water in view of the appropria-
tion carried in the Rivers and Harbors
bill, the public building of the city, the
spirit of progress shown in the voting of
$300,000 worth of bonds for public im
provements, needing, he said, only the
act of the Legislature to validate them;
and to the other evidences of progress
shown during the past year.
Hereafter, said the President, the peo-
ple of Tampa must work on broader lines
for the general good. He stated that
from now on the Tampa Board of Trade
would hold quarterly meetings, explained
their work and what they have done, and
invited the co-operation of the public.
At Mr. Fuller's request, Capt. C. E. Gar-
ner, president of the Jacksonville Board of
Trade, and a gentleman closely affiliated
with the business interests of Tampa. ad-
dressed the gathering. He congratulated
the city on its progress and its prospects
for the future, and the Board of Trade on
having such competent officers as President
Fuller and Secretary Calhoun. He com-
pared' Tampa now with Tampa twenty
years ago in a very entertaining manner,
and said that he hoped between Tampa
and Jacksonville there woudl always exist
a keen and friendly rivalry. His presents
tion of the patriotic and unselfish work
done by the boards of trade was very ef
Mr. Drebton's Speecah.
Edwin Brolmton, one of the real estate
frm of Brobston, Feadig & Co., a Georgia
gentleman who imported himself into Flor-
ida, and has developed into a loyal and
enthusiastic adopted son of the Peninsular
State, was invited by President Fuller
and made a brief and very highly appre-
ciated speech, dwelling principally on the
future of this State.
Dr. W. C. Richardson, on invitation of
the chair, addressed the meeting. He spoke
of the very healthful condition of Tampa.
and showed that this city is in the small
area which has the most sunshine in the
United States. He also made a strong re-
quest, for Rone Tinney, of Ozona, who
could not be present, in behalf of the
Board using their influence with the Coun-
ty ('onissioners to induce the latter to
,on4truct a hard road between Tampa
and the West Coast, setting forth strongly
the claims of that section to recognition.
In closing he requested the Board to in-
vite the State Horticultural Society to
hold its next meeting in Tampa.
Senator James E. Crane, a former resi-
dent of the West Coast, supported Dr.
Riihardson's arguments, and offered a reso-
lution requesting the Commissioners to
construct the road at their earliest con-

REPORT OF SECRETARY.
Annal Meeting, February ist, 1905.
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the
The active membership of this body at
the corresponding date of last year was
129. Since that time 15 new members
have been admitted, making a total en
rollment of 144. Four have resigned, three
have been dropped for non-payment of
dues and one has died. The active mem-
bership at this date is 136.
The receipts for the past year, with
balance at the beginning, were $1,303.42;
the expenditures, $1,400.71-leaving a
small debit, in addition to an indebtedness
of $100 for printing.
The secretary has printed and distrib-
uted, under direction of the Board of Gov-
ernors, 5,000 copies of his last annual re-
port and 2,000 copies of a folder embrac-
ing the leading facts about the city and
illustrated with several typical pictures.
Besides the good done by the distribution
of these documents on the outside, there
is reason to believe that their presenta-
tions had much influence for good among
our home people, making them familiar
with the extraordinarily favorable cir-
cumstances surrounding our city, the great
progress it was making, and the bright
prospects ahead- and giving them an or-
ganised and perfect confidence in the fu-
future. It has been the habit and aim of
the secretary to confine himself to facts
of public record, and what he has present-
ed to the public has been unassailable by
doubt or disbelief.
He has during the past year received
and replied to nearly one thousand direct
letters of inquiry, and within many cases
the happy result that the writers are
now with us either -temporarily as visitors
or permanently as citizens.
The year 1904 was simply an addition
to the season of prosperity of which 1903
was fairly the beginning. The year pre-

pressing the hope that the system may
becoipe generally in use in America, as it
is to-day in France. The system is be-
coming more and more popular, as it has
been clearly demonstrated that the cup
in lieu of the "box" not only preserves the
life of the pine, thus perpetuating the
industry, but actually produces more spir-
its and better rosin. The factory of the
Chattanooga Pottery Co. is located at
Daisy, Tenn., a short distance out from
Chattanooga, where a desirable clay is
found, and where the kilns are in close
proximity to the fuel. The general offices
of the company are in Jacksonville. John
Henderson, auditor of the Consolidated
Companies, is the president of the com-
pany, and J. A. Cranford, vice-president
of the Consolidated Naval Stores Com-
pany, is secretary. The company is never

The Consolidated Grocery Company.
The enormous business done by the Con-
solidated Grocery Co., since the unity of
those three large concerns, the C. B. Rog-
ers Co., the Florida Grocery Co. and I. S.
Giddens & Co., is a proof positive that the
amalgamation was a wise one, Nor is this,
perhaps, to be wondered at, when we know
who are its immediate directors. The vol-
ume of business done by them as import-
ers and wholesale grocers in Provisions,
Grain, Hay, Flour, Grits and Meal is some-
thing very large indeed, keeping pace with
the onward march of the city, proving con-
clusively that it has fully merited and
retains the confidence of its customers.
Success is like a pyramid-broad at the
base as the thronging millions that crowd
it; towering upwards its point narrows:
scattered along its sides are the men who
have achieved something more than usual
prominence in the world of affairs. At
the top are the few who have grandly sue
needed, their forms lit up with the sun-
shine of merited fame, and so it is with
the Consolidated Grocery Company, Tam-
pa branch. Not a little of this success is
to be attributed to its being managed by
W. A. Gallaher, whose energy, quick per-
ception, true judgment and last but not
least, uniform courtesy to all who may be
fortunate enough to come in touch with
him, whether they be traders or visitors,
is proverbial and well known to every one
in Tampa and many other cities.

While there are still some items lack-
ing to make an exact statement of the

year was 3,789,694 pounds, with a value of
$127,160-an increase of 20 per cent in

A number of cigar and other manufac-
turing plants have been established in the
city during the past year, adding largely
to the wage earning population. The moit
notable of these is a plant for making
brick of lime and sand, which, although
the plant itself is located at Valrico, is
in every sense a Tampa enterprise.
A conservative estimate of the increase
whenever it does become a law this depth
will be certain for Tampa. In this good
work the ability and fidelity of Congress-
man Sparkman have been constantly em-
ployed, and this Board has lent its aid in
every way possible.
The following meteorological data for
the year are taken from the records of the
U. S. Weather Bureau, Department of
Agriculture, at Tampa, Fla.: Mean tem-
perature, 71.5 degrees; highest, 95 de-
grees, occurred June 4th; lowest, 35 de-
grees, occurred December 29; number of
days on which temperature reached above
90 degrees, 45; freezing temperature was
not experienced during the year. Total
rainfall, 44.80 inches; greatest amount of
rain in any one month was in August,
9.29 inches, and the least in April, 0.66
inches; the average number of days per
month in which so much as .01 of an inch
of rain fell was 9. The sun shone 3,064

will be the establishment of a "home feel-

faction with their surroundings and be-

and permanent identification with us in
all the qualities and functions of eitisen-

nestly wished for amd will be duly ap-
preciated, when it fully and finally ar-

During the year there has been thrown
open to the use of the public a commod-
ious and elegant building for the transac-

Within the past few days the Rivers and
Harbors Committee of Congress has framed
a bill in which an item provides for the
construction of a channel in Hillshorough

cent of sunshine during the year. The
highest wind velocity of any five minute
period during the year was 33 miles per
hour, from the northeast, October Id.
There were 145 clear days, 164 partly
cloudy days and 57 cloudy days. The av-
erage relative humidity was 79 per cent.
These figures compare favorably with
those of any locality in the world for the
conservation and promotion of health,
and as permissive of outdoor activity
One of the most important and valua-
ble additions which have been made to
the city during the past year-one which
is worthy of special mention and com-
mendation--is the virtual completion of
two sanitoria by the Spanish-speaking peo
pie, one by the Centro Espanol and tl.e
other by the Centro-Asturianos societies.
Their combined cost will exceed one huIn-
dred thousand dollars. and when fully
equipped they will be entirely up-to-date
in all their appointments and give Tampn
rank in this particular with the largest
cities in the country. It is also well under-
stood that these institutions are but the
beginning of plans for a complete minis-
tration to the peculiar wants of our Latin
people in the line of social amusement and
acme of architectural and utilitarian de-
sign. Its cost was $365,000, and it is su-
perior in all essential respects to any gov-
ernment building in the Southern States.
I may be pardoned for mentioning the
fact that the excellence of the structure
and the good fortune of Tamps in pos-
sessing it are largely due to the labors
and influence of our indefatigable repre-
sentative in Congress.
All intelligent persons can easily ascer-
tain for themselves from this report and
the comparisons made therein that the
progress of Tampa has been continuous
for years in growing proportion, and that
it bids fair to continue until it becomes
the second of all cities of the Gulf. An
argument on the subject would prolong
this report to a tedious length, and it is
therefore dismissed until the secretary
is able to issue a publication which he
holies to do at no distant date.

trusses and metal roof, containing a bat-
tery of four 80-horsepower boilers. The

tains an engine room 18x19 feet, with 75-
horsepower engine. In this room will be
located the machines for sawing staves
and heading, both for tight and slack bar-
rels. These saws will cut into staves and
heading large quantities of bolts and logs
that will be shipped in by the carload.
In this room will also be located a veneer-
ing machine for cutting all kinds of crate
material. All of the machinery will be
of the very latest pattern.
In connection with this mill will be
a yard of sufficient size for storing several
million staves and pieces of heading, that
same may be thoroughly seasoned. In
order to make the best barrel, it is ab-
solutely necessary that the stock should
remain on the yard, and be air-dried at
least three months before putting into the
package. It is the Cooperage Company's
intention to furnish the operator with the
best barrel on the market and with the
facilities they have for keeping several
months' supply of material cut ahead,
there is every reason why they will be
able to turn out a barrel that will give
satisfaction, especially in view of the
fact that the closest attention will be paid
to the culling of the material and putting
the barrel together.
One superintendent's house, containing
six rooms, three mechanic's houses, con-
taining four rooms, and twelve mechanics'
houses containing three rooms, will be
erected. These houses will be supplied with

electric lights from the company's plants
on the ground.
A six-inch artesian well has been put
down on the premises, so as to insure an
ample supply of water at all times.
A water tank is to be erected on tihe
most improved steel frame, 75 feet from
the ground, 20,000 gallons capacity. A
standard system of pipes will run through
all parts of the building and grounds,
thereby reducing the rate of insurance.
The plant when completed, including
cost of building and machinery and other
improvements, will represent an outlay of
$75,000 or more, and is considered by dis-
interested parties who have seen the plans
to be the most complete plant of its kind
in the Southern country. This is in addi-
tion to the money invested in timber,
which will reach $50,000. The employees
necessary to operate this plant will be
over two hundred, the greater number of
which will be located in Jacksonville. The
capacity of the plant will be 1,000 barrels
per day, and other packages in proportion,
thereby guaranteeing parties who use bar-
rels and packages a supply at all times.
No expense will be spared to turn out the
very best package on the market, and by
the excellent arrangement of the building
the cost of handling and manufacturing
the material into packages will be reduced
to a minimum.
In addition to making barrels by ma-
chinery, the Cooperage Company owns and
controls at the present time ten hand
cooper shops. These shops are located over
Georgia and Florida, and supply the tur-
pentine operators with barrels in Alabama,
Georgia and Florida, reaching all points
via rail or water, equalizing freights with
any shops in the above territory.
The operators will remember that there
has frequently been ascarcity of barrels,
causing them annoyance and loss, and, in
addition, high prices were threatened in
the beginning of this season. Then, too, a
very inferior grade of barrels were sold.

staves, poor material and bad workman-

so as .to reach the New Orleans, Mobile,
Atlanta, Savannah and Charleston mar-
This company owns large tracts of tim-
ber lands, and will manufacture the mate-
rial from the tree. They have already two
stave mills in the woods, cutting white
oak staves and heading. The capacity of
these is 9,000 staves each per day, and the
heading machines the same, making a
daily output of 18,000 staves and the same
of heading. They have cut and stacked in
the woods at this time stock representing
an investment in these materials alone of
over $50,000. These staves and heading
will be sent to the Jacksonville plant, put
through the dry kiln, and manufactured
into high-grade spirit barrels. In addition
to the stave mills now in operation, the
Cooperage Company will soon erect in the
woods another mill of the same capacity
as those mentioned above. The stave and
heading mill at the plant, in addition to
the three above mentioned, will give a
capacity of about 36,000 staves per day,
and the same number of pieces of heading.
In addition to tracts of timber that the
company already own, they are having in-
vestigated large tracts of white oak in
Alabama and Tennessee.
The organization of the Cooperage Com-
pany was brought about as a matter of
necessity and protection, one of the main
objects being to keep the operators sup-
plied with a good quality of barrels at all
times and at a fair price. As stated be-
fore, there had been a great deal of
trouble in securing barrels, and some of
those purchased were of inferior quality;
this had not only resulted in a loss to the
industry, but in a great and general an-
noyance. Those who are interested in
this company are the Consolidated Naval
Stores Company, the West-Flynn-Harris
Co., and the Barnes & Jessup Co., all of
whom are dealers in naval stores, and are
thoroughly acquainted with the trade and

The Consonliated Compan;es and the Men Who Manage Them,
In this issue the Record presents a pic-
ture of the front elevation of the mag-
nificent seven-story building being erected
on East Bay Street, Jacksonville, by the
Consolidated Naval Stores Co., also the
warehouses, wharves, etc., in connection
with the same which will be used by the
Consolidated Grocery Company. This will
be the largest building in Jacksonville, and
one of the finest. In this issue also the
Record presents for the first time a com-
plete group picture of the officers and di-
rectors of the Consolidated Companies,
who were re-elected at the annual meet-
ing held in Jacksonville last month.
The only changes in the group since the
organization of the company two years
ago are the additions of W. J. Hillman and
R. B. Powell to the Board of Directors.
It may be interesting at this juncture to
refer briefly to these well-known business
Mr. W. C. Powell, the president of the
Consolidated Naval Stores Company, is a
North Carolinian, who was prominent in
the business and educational circles of
that State before he moved into the tur-
pentine fields of South Georgia sixteen
years ago. Fourteen years ago he con-
ceived the idea of a co-operative factorage
business, in which all the operators, who
were stockholders, could share in the reve-
nues, giving them the enjoyment of reve-
nues not only from the production, but
from the marketing of their products.
On this basis the Savannah Naval Stores
Company was organized, which was suc-
ceeded, on a larger and broader scale, by
the Southern. The success of these two
corporations was phenomenal. With a cap-
ital stock that never averaged more than
$300,000 the companies paid over a mil-
lion dollars in dividends alone in the twelve
years of their existence. Mr. Powell has
always held the operator first in heart.
He is in thorough sympathy with them.
He is a man of quick perceptions and great
organizing and executive strength.
Mr. Powell is now a resident of Jackson-
ville and is closely identified with a num-
ber of industrial and financial institutions.
He is a director of the Atlantic National
Bank and director of the West-Flynn-Har-
ris Company, naval stores factors.
Mr. W. F. Coachman, vice-president, is
a native Floridian, who was trained in the
railroad service. He has been one of the
most successful business men in Florida
due to his remarkable executive ability
and his fidelity to the confidences im-
THE CONSOLIDATED BUILDING.

^^ Bfl WW,-'cy'*A r ,."
The main building is 70 feet by 105 feet, seven stories high. The front is In-
diana and Oolitic Limestone. The sides are lead colored Cocina Brick. The first
floor will be occupied as offices by the Consolidated Grocery Co. and the four top
floors by the Consolidated Naval Stores Co., the Cooperage Co., the Chattanooga
Pottery Co., the Consolidated Land Co., and other allied companies, and there will
be a few offices for rent.
The building will have marble, iron and brass stairs and will have two passen-
ger elevators and one freight elevator. The floors in all the halls and corridors will
be Tennessee marble tiles and the wainscoting in all the halls will 'be Georgia
marble. There will be elaborate cornices, beams and pilasters in the hallways, giv-
ing them a rich and attractive appearance. The windows will all have metal frames
and wire glass, affording the best possible protection against fire. There will also
be a standpipe and automatic sprinklers throughout the building. A huge pine
burr, about seven feet high surmounts the structure, emblematic of the naval stores
In the rear of the seven-story building is a three-story warehouse, provided with
ample fire protection, 75x90 feet, and a wharf and one-story warehouse in the
rear 105x400 feet, these to be used by the Consolidated Grocery Co., as shown by

posed in him. He is a man of great busi-
ness ability, coupled with good judgment,
and when the two are linked there is never
a failure. Mr. Coachman was the first man
to undertake the handling of naval stores
in Jacksonville, and did so when many old
factors in Savannah told him it would be
impossible for him to succeed. The Florida
Naval Stores and Commission Company
was a great success from its very begin-
ning. Mr. Coachman and Mr. H. A. Mc-
Eachern, who was until the formation of
the Consolidated the vice-president and
general manager of the Mutual Naval
Stores Company, have done more in de-
veloping the naval stores interests in Jack-
sonville than any other persons. The city
of Jacksonville owes much to these gen-
Mr. Coachman is identified with several
large enterprises. He is president of the
Florida Bank and Trust Co., with a capital
stock of $1,000,000, the largest in Florida.
He is president of the Consolidated Land
Company and a director in various corpo-
Mr. H. A. McEachern, vice-president, is
another native North Carolinian, who came
to the turpentine woods from the school-
room. He came for his health, and he has
made both health and wealth. Mr. Me-
achern enjoys a large acquaintance with
operators, and is in as close touch with
them as any man in the business. He or-
ganized, with Mr. A. S. MeMillan, since
deceased, the Mutual Naval Stores Com-
pany, of this city, a very successful faec
torage house from the beginning. It was
based on the same cooperative lines as the
Southern, and the present Consolidated.
Mr. McEaehern was vice-president and
general manager. He is a man of keen
business judgment, true to his friends
and faithful in the discharge of his obli-
gations. He is prominent in a number
of large corporations and is a director of
the Florida Bank and Trust Co.
Mr. H. L. Covington, vice-president, is
a native North Carolinian also. He was
formerly one of the largest and most suc-
cessful operators South Georgia ever had.
He was the outside manager for the Down-
ing Company for several years, and was
next to Mr. Downing in making that com-
pany such a great success. Mr. Covington
was the first man to establish a factorage
concern in Florida, which was at Carra-
belle. It afterwards developed into the
Gulf Naval Stores Company at Pensacola,
with branches at Carrabelle and Tampa.

He is now in charge of the Consolidated
Naval Stores Company's business at Pen-
sacola. Mr. Covington is an unusually
strong business man, and has been a most
influential developer of the industry. He
is also a prominent banker.
Mr. B. F. Bullard, vice-president, is an-
other North Carolinian, and one of the
most successful men in the industry. He
operated in the woods for a number of
years very successfully. He joined Mr.

Mr. J. A. Cranford, vice-president, is
another Lowndes County Georgian, and
an unusually good business man. He ope-
rated for a number of years in the woods
successfully, and his interests became so
extensive that he decided to go into the
factorage business and handle his own
product and that of others he could get,
and seven or eight years ago he organized
the Cranford-Henderson Company, which
did a most satisfactory business at Sa-
vannah for a number of years. About
five years ago he merged this business into
the Gulf Naval Stores Company, and be-
came general manager of the Tampa house.
His efforts have always been successful.

in the business, and looks particularly

The Consolidated Land Company is one of the auxiliary companies of the Consolidated Naval Stores Company. The
stockholders are the same. The company has extensive holdings in timber lands throughout Florida and they are offered to
operators at reasonable prices. In addition to timber lands, the company owns considerable grazing and prairie lands.
Individual references to the officers and directors of this company, with one exception, are made in the article concerning the
Consolidated Naval Stores Co., which appears elsewhere. Mr. Wilson, the secretary and treasurer of the company, the ex-
ception in question, is one of the most experienced real estate and timber land men in the State. He brought to the
company a ripe training which is not only of advantage to the company, but to the operator who may become a customer.

"TAMPA-WHAT IT I"
Acting upon orders received from our
editor and manager, Mr. James Hollomon,
I have these past ten days visited the
beautiful city of Tampa, and collected
from every possible source the accompany-
ing authentic facts and information con-
cerning this most lovely and progressive
city of the South, and it is the general
belief that although between Tampa and
Jacksonville there would ever exist a keen
rivalry, it would always be on the most
friendly basis, producing such object les-
sons of the greatest value to each city,
which if accepted by either would in no
small degree largely help their progress
and future development. In conclusion, I
should be unworthy of the great kindness
received from all were I to omit mention-
ing in particular the valuable assistance
and courtesy received alike from Mayor
F. A. Salomanson, President Fuller, Sec-
retary Calhoun, of the Board of Trade,
and President T. J. L. Brown, of the South

"We think these pictures, showing the
French or "Cup" System of tapping the
pines, may interest you.
"The superiority of this method to that
of 'boxing' is so obvious that we are glad
to know that it is, at last, being adopted
in the United States. By the new method
the trees can be tapped for 40 years, in-

than when 'boxed.'"

AN IMPORTANT COMBINATION.
Development of the Great Southern Piano
House of Ludden-Campbell-Smith.
For nearly thirty-five years the names
of Wm. Ludden, J. A. Bates and A. B.
Campbell have been household words in
the State of Florida. From the organiza-
tion of the Southern Music House and
the Florida Music House in 1870, the above
gentlemen took the lead in the southern
music trade, and by their liberal and fair
methods built up a trade far in advance
of any of its kind.
In the year 1901 Mr. Ludden and Mr.
Bates withdrew from all connection with
the Savannah, Ga., branch of their busi-
ness and in company with Mr. A. B. Camp-
bell and Mr. Jaspersen Smith, for years
the treasurer of their house, formed the
well known Ludden-Campbell-Smith Co.,
with headquarters at Jacksonville, and
branches at all important points in Flor-
ida. This house not only does an immense
business in pianos and organs of standard
makes, but has the largest Southern stock
of sheet music and musical merchandise,
handling everything from a jews' harp to
a pipe organ. All who wish to deal with
the originators of the above great indus-
try should be careful to address the Lud-
den-Campbell-Smith Co., which will gladly
correspond and send free catalogues and
information to all its friends.

we have sold pianos to are the following:

moving factor in the organization, author-
ized the following interview:
"The Florida Bank and Trust Company
will be the result of an era of unusual
prosperity and development in Florida and
Jacksonville. The business requirements
of the times, in my judgment, demand
a large bank with ample capital to facili-
tate the rapid commercial and industrial
developments of the big interests that are
now here and will come when we have
deep water. Again, every man of large
business interests has realized for many
months the great need of a trust company
in Jacksonville. That is always one of the
essentials to a large and progressive city.
The surety feature, on the other hand,
will keep thousands of dollars annually
in Florida for investment that are now
sent out of the State by virtue of the
fact that there are no home bonding com-

favor with which this proposition is being
received among business people."
Having large resources, conservative
management and a representative Board of
Directors, and being equipped with un-
excelled facilities for the transaction of
all branches of legitimate banking and
trust business, the Florida Bank & Trust
Company solicits the accounts and busi-
ness of corporations, firms and individ-
uals as well as out-of-town banks, prom-
ising the utmost liberality of terms con-
sistent with prudent business methods.
The company acts as trustee, transfer
agent, registrar, and fiscal agent for cor-
porations, cities, counties and States. Ex-
ecutes all that large class of trusts usu-

of the best known business men in Flor-

executive committee of the Consolidated
Naval Stores Company, president of the
Consolidated Land Company, and identi-
fied as official and stockholder in a half-
dozen more of the largest business inter-

first naval stores factorage business ever
established in Jacksonville, the Florida
Naval Stores and Commission Company,
which paid perhaps the largest dividends
ever paid by any corporation in the city
to that time. His name is a synonym for
business integrity, and it is fortunate
that an institution of this magnitude has

such confidence by all the people.

one of the organizers and the first presi-

desiring to be relieved from active busi-

successor, the directors unanimously chose
Mr. A. D. Covington, who has for years
been one of the largest operators in West
Florida. No wiser choice could have been
made. Mr. Covington is one of a family
of successful turpentine men and has been
most successful in all of his operations.
He is thoroughly experienced in every fea-

careful handler of labor and a most able

Mr. P. L Sutherland, is one of the ablest

in Florida. He is a native Georgian and
has beenin the naval stores business only
five years. In that time he has a series
of most successful operations to his credit,

Eagleteo & Price.
There is no doubt but that the name
of one of our most energetic and progrei-
sive firms in the real estate business is
now very frequently heard in all busi-
ness quarters, and for that matter, at
home also. We allude with great pleas-
ure to the firm of Eagleton & Price, whose
offices are to be found at rooms 203-201,
American National Bank building. They
sell the earth, they state, and there can
be no question, judging by the business'
they do, that such is in reality the case.
Their lists of city property, turpentine and
sawmill locations, orange groves, farming
lands, and not forgetting their loan depart-
ment, is a very large one, and should you
want to buy any kind of property, in any
part of Florida, you will profit by calling
on or writing to them, and the best re-
sults may be anticipated. There can be no
question of the stability of this rising
firm. Mr. Eagleton has splendid business
ability, being many years at Ocala, and
Mr. Price, being the manager for F. P.
Collier & Son, New York, and travelling
many years for them, knows the lands
well, and gaining that practical experience
so essential to success and this we feel
sure is the case when we consider how
splendidly both are equipped with that
true judgment, quick perception, and last,
but not least, that uniform courtesy to all
whom they may come in contact with.

charge of all the grocery branches of the
Consolidated Grocery Company. He is a
man of great personal popularity, mag
nifcent business judgment, and his suc-
cess in managing large affairs demonstrates
his executive ability.
Mr. D. H. MeMillan, vice-president, is
from Robertson County, North Carolina.
He is thoroughly learned in the turpentine
business. He operated for some fifteen
years, and was extremely successful. He
was one of the incorporators of the Mutual
Naval Stores Company, living then at
Altoona, and after the death of his broth-
er he was elected president of the Mutual.
He is a safe and conservative operator
and factor, and is extremely popular with
the masses of operators. As one of the
managers of the Consolidated, he is of
great use to that company. Mr. McMillan
is a man of big heart, strong force of
character and good judgment. He is prom-
inently identified with a number of cor-
porations, and is a director in the Florida
Bank & Trust Co.
Mr. C. M. Covington, vice-president, is
also a North Carolinian. He was formerly
with the Downing Company in charge of
their grocery business, and from there
went to Carrabelle and was in charge of
the offices of the Gulf Naval Stores Com-
pany there, and afterwards became secre-
tary-treasurer of the Gulf at Pensacola.
He is an exceptionally fine office man. He
is now assistant secretary and treasurer of
the Consolidated Naval Stores Company
and manager of the grocery branch at
Pensacola of the Consolidated Grocery
Company. He is a very conservative bus-
iness man, careful and capable, wih hosts
of friends and a most successful business
Mr. J. R. Saunders, vice-president, of
Pensacola, is a North Carolinian. He ope-
rated the mill and turpentine business in
Georgia for many years. Afterwards he
became interested in the management
of a large guano manufacturing company
at Valdosta, and afterwards bought large
bodies of timber in West Florida and or-
ganized the West Coast Naval Stores Com-
pany, and was president until that com-
pany went into the Consolidated. He is
yet in the transportation and mill busi-
ness, as well as in the banking and real
estate business. He is a very successful
business man, quick in perception, safe in
judgment, and with good executive ability.
Mr. E. A. Champlain, vice-president of
the Consolidated Grocery Company, is one
of the hardest working men in the busi-
ness. He has be.n one of the potent fac-
tors in building up the large and successful
business of the C. B. Rogers Company,
and knows the grocery business thorough
ly from start to finish. Mr. Champlain
enjoys great popularity with and outside
of the trade. He is a most painstaking
and conservative office man, with a judg-
ment that is almost faultless, and a most
remarkable ability in executive work.
Mr. W. A. Gallaher, vice-president of
the Consolidated Grocery Company, is a
Georgian, born in the grocery business.
Some years ago he was one of the organ-
izers of the Macon Grocery Company,
which had a phenomenal success. After-
wards he sold his interests there and
bought stock with the Ellis-Young Com-
pany at Savannah, and was elected vice-
president and manager of the grocery de-
partment, which conveniently fitted him
for the turpentine trade of Florida, which
he afterwards held. Four years and a

successful. He is manager of the Tampa

ST The Tape-stlae Oprmatermr
In the year of 1901, I out the price on Black Joe and Standard Haeks from t7 to 6 a don-
en because they did not give the satisfaction in the new districts that were belag worked
that they did in the former sections. In the season of 1904, I brought out a new tool the Blue
Line. and offered it so as to ind out from the tools returned, the best tool for the business.
Out of about Three Thousand Domen Blue Lie tools sold. less than ten dozen were returned
as defective and unsatisfactory. This lead us to put this material in all of our tools and to
raise the price on all except Blue Line, believing that this was the best thing that we could do
for the Operators as well as ourselves. The most perfect tools, and those made by the mot
skillful workmen, are selected as Blue Line and Diamond Edge; second best going into Back
Joe and Standard. If there is any dissatisfaction on account of this advance in price it s
not well founded for I fully believe that the tools will cost the operator lesser crop now
than they would had I not made change. Very truly, Jr. P.COVI L.
