SAVANNAH, GEORGIA. |
A Leading Sunsthern City ,, Its Large Possibilitieq and EjcCptical Opportunietir
(Br -CHARLES TMPLE.)
A recent victor to Savannah, one of the
most prominent and wealthy real estate
dealers in the United States, stated upon
leaving the city as follows:
From Information and observation gained
while in this city I am certain that Sa-
vannah's future s an exceptionally bright
one, for it is not only one of the most
beautiful cities in the United States, but
that its possibilities and opportunities for
further development in its business, com-
meiclal and industrial progress places it
undoubtedly as one of the greatest cities
of the South.
It Is gratifying to realize that Savannah
has passed that point where any doubt
whatever can be entertained as to its com-
mercial future, of its maritime pre-emi-
nence on the South Atlantic, and of its
peerss progress n everything that is es-
sential to fix the status of a metropolitan
city. Its multitude of thriving industries,
Its Importance in commerce, its rise as a
center for production and supply, giving
Its advantages alike to the manufacturer
and the merchant, the capitalist and the
small investor proves those words most
The stranger who as not visited Savan-
nah in some years will be surprised at the
vast strides that have been made, at the
rapid increase in business, the signs ev-
erywhere of the great accumulation of
wealth, and the many opportunities that
have been opened and taken hold of for
the investment of capital profitably.
On all sides the improvement in recent
years have been enormous. Savannah to-
day and Savannah twenty-five years ago
are as different cities n many respects as
though they were not the same munici-
The first time that a white man set foot
on the site of Savannah, according to tra-
dition, was In 15E when Sir Walter Ral-
eigh landed here and held conference with
an Indian chief, at a point near or upon
now what is known as Gas House Hill.
This Is also said to have been the burial
placeothe the chief, who chose the spot In
memory of his compact with the "great
white man with a red beard." Sir Walter
Montgomery secured from the Palatinate
and Lards Proprietor of the Province of
Carolia in 1717 a grant and release of all
lands between the Altamaha and Savannah
rivers. HM attempt to colonize the lands
failed and they reverted back to the Lords
Proprietor of Carolina.
The history of Savannah begins with the
settlement of Georgia in 171, the youngest
of thirteen colonies. The early existence
of the little colony that at lo ed on the
banks of the Savannah was one of difficul-
ties and sufferings. They were a hardy
and determined people, and a permanent
establshmeent was maintained.
John Laord Viscount Percival, James Ed-
ward Oglethrope and their associates ob-
tained from George II a grant for twenty-
one years of the country between the Sa-
vannah and the Altamaha rivers, and west-
ward to the Pacific ocean, in trust for the

Roman Catholics were excluded and were
not admitted until Georgia became a Royal
Province, thirty years later. The first visit
of Oglethrope was in 173. He selected the
site for the colony and concluded a treaty
with Tomo-Chl-Chi, chief of the Indian na-
tion occupying the territory. On February
Ist, 1111 he landed on Yamacrow Bluff,
accompanied by Colonel William Bull, and

SAVANNAH IN THE REVOLUTION
The Court House and Tabernacle were on
the northeast corner of Bull street and
Bay lane. The public mill was on Bryan
street, where the Southern Express Com-
pany's building now is. The home for
strangers was at No. 22-4 Congress street
west The public oven was on the north-
east corner of Congress and Whitaker
streets. The draw well was in the center
of Bull street at the Intersection of Con-
gress lane. The church lot is now occu-
pied by Christ Church. The public store
was at 25 Bull street. The fort was locat-
ed on the line of President street, east of
Drayton street. The parsonage was on the
church lot, just east of Drayton street.
The Palisades started on the bluff at what
now is No. U1 Bay street west. The prin-
elpal streets were named for prominent
Carolina farmers who helped the Geor-
gians start life in the new world. These
are Bull. Whitaker, Drayton, St. Julen
and Bryan. Montgomery street derives its
name from Sir Robert Montgomery, who
held the first grant to the lands. After te
departure of Orglethorpe for England the
government of the colony devolved upon
the trustees in England and it anguished
in consequence of their chimerical views
and niH.m.pigement. Agriculture did
not flourish, commerce was not eneour-
aged, the attempt to establish silk culture
proved a failure, the settlers were leaving
to locate in Carolina and other American
possessions or were going back to nag-
land. In 17 the trustees decided to sur-
render the charter and Georgia became a
Royal province. Savannah survived under
the more liberal and the wiser protectio
of the crown and In time became the pros-
pering foster-mother of Georgia. The set-
tiers of Georgia were naturally an Inde
pendent people, and the "Stamp Act" had
the same effect upon them as their cousins
in Massachusetts, and Savannah frnished
much of the powder used in defense of
Bunker Hill. At the breaking out of hos-
tlities Oglethorpe, the founder of Savan-
nah, was offered the command of the Brit-
ish forces in America operating against the
Americans under Washington, but declined
It. A Georgia schooner was the first Gc-
missioned American vessel in the Revo-
lutionary War, and made the first cap-
ture of the war off Tybee, consisting of
16,000 pounds of powder. Savannah revolt-
ed against the Royal Governor early in
1776 and imprisoned him. Although the
youngest of the original thirteen colonies,
Georgia and Its chief city, Savannah, were
among the first to espouse the cause of in-
dependence. In 1777 the convention met in
Savannah and framed a State constitu-
tion. The city was captured by the Brit-
ish toward the close of 1778, after a say-
agely disputed struggle. Many of the dct-
izens were Ikayonetted In the streets and
others were imprisoned on board of Brit-
Ish ships. The people suffered the horors
of a rigorous military rule by the British
troops until the English troops surrendered
to General Anthony Wayne July Uth, mh,
the Rough Rider of the Revolution. In

has on numerous occasions evinced its
patriotism. When visited by Washington
after becoming President he was received
with Joyous enthusiasm. Lafayette was
given an overwhelming welcome, and dur-
ing his visit laid the corner stones of the
Pulaski and the Greene monuments. So

States army, despite the strenuous efforts
of other cities to secure selection. A per-
manent military hospital was also erected
here with 1,20 beds. one of the finest in-
titutions of the kind in the country.

From the days of the colonists Savannah
has cherished patriotism and valor. The
most beautiful avenue, Bull street, has its
square adorned with fine productions of
the sculptor's art. Beginning at the most
northern square on Bull street is the mon-
ument of General Nathaniel Greene of
Riode island, who shared with Washing-
ton the gratitude of the Revolutionary pa-
triots He settled on a tract of land near
Savannah in 17 and upon his decease in
171, his remains were interred in Savan-
ash with military honors. The Gordon
monument in the Court House square was
erected in 18 by the Central Railway to
its first president. In the same square is
the Imense granite boulder, rough-hewn
from a Georgia quarry, commemorating
the noble character and heroic virtues of

In the Chippewa Square are the Bartow
and the MeLmws monuments, Confederate
heroes, and erected in 138. President
Cleveland took part in the unveiling of
the Jasper monument, located in Madison

monuments in Savannah. The monument
to Brigadier General Count Casimer Pu-
lahk is situated on Monterey Square. The
Confederate soldiers' monument on the
parade ground is surmounted by a bronze
figure of a Confederate soldier, distinctive
for its faithful portrayal of the hardships
endured during the four years of warfare.

Savannah is the Forest City of the great
and growing South, being richly endowed
by nature as a manufacturing center and
a place of residence; it is a city to live in
for health, for pleasure or for business pur-
It is the City of Opportunities.
It has a noble historic past, a past full
of romance and sentiment; but it does not
live In the past.
It draws inspiration from the glorious
deeds that have marked its history, but
its eyes are set on the future, a future
that is full of bright promise, of rapid de-
velopment, commercially and industrially,
a future that seems to hold in store for the
city wonderful growth in population and
vast Increase of wealth.
Savannah keeps footstep with the spirit
of the age. It throbs in unison with the
great business heart of the world.
One hundred and seventy-one years of
great deeds endear it to the patriot, the
historian, and to all men whose souls are
not callous to the achievements and les-
sons of bygone generations. It does not
rest content upon the laurels of the past,
but is pushing forward to new victories in
the varied life of to-day.
Savannah is pre-eminently a city where
trade, commerce, manufactures are de-
lightfully intermingled with the highest
culture, with unusual devotion to the
beautiful, with full appreciation of art.
where the aesthetic side of life is culti-
vated, while business opportunities are
being seized and trade expended in all
directions. And we say It with true pride,
it is the ideal city alike for the investor,
the merchant, the manufacturer, who de-
sires while establishing his business to se-
cure for his family the advantages of a
home in a community where the higher
things of life which make life worth the
living for, are not neglected.

pares most favorably with that of any oth-
er city of the United States, and Savannah

Savannah was an important shipping and

that year George Washington, upon visit-

with square rigged ve-els, and that the
chief trade was tobacco, indago, hemp

4.478 from Savannah to New York and
The Marehmatm ad Mtnw Treasport-
tlon Company operates seven steamships of
17,100 tonnage, connecting Savannah with
Baltimore and Philadelphia. These vessels
carry both passengers and freight and give
three sailings weekly from Savannah to
New York, one to Boston, two to Phila-
delphia and three to Baltimore.
In all these railroad and steamship sys-
tems have terminals here covering 750
acres, and with a wharf frontage of over
25,000 feet, or nearly five miles.
A union depot costing, with approaches.
00,000, is used by all of the roads enter-
ing -here, except the Central of Georgia,
which maintains its own depot. St. Louis,
Kansas City, Omaha and other centers for
the distribution of food products, as well
as Chattanooga, Birmingham and other im-
portant points in the mineral section of the
South, are many miles nearer to Savannah
than to any of ti'e Northern seaports.
Nearly all of the cotton mills of the South
are within a radius of three hundred miles
of Savannah. svannah is recognized as
the natural port of entry and seaport for
the entire southeast, and for a great ex-
tent of Western country. The construction
of the Panama canal will strengthen its
position in this and other respects. When
that great waterway Is completed Savan-
nah will be 705 miles nearer to its mouth
than New York, 610 miles nearer than Phil-
adelphia and 550 miles nearer than Balti-
more. It will also be nearer than New Or-
leans or Galveston. All experts on the
commercial situation predict a vast and
rapid growth for the business of Savannah
with the completion of the anal across the
Isthmus. From a transportation stand-
point, Savannah offers many advantages to
the merchant and manufacturer.
Savannah is among principal seaports of
the South Atlantic coast Its importance has
been recognized for many years by the
Federal government, which has expanded
in all seven million dollars in the improve
ment and deepening its harbor. There in
now practically a depth of twenty-eight
feet at mean high tide in its channel from
the city to the sea. A movement has bee
inaugurated looking to a further survey
and appropriation for thirty feet at mean
low water. Competent engineers have ds-
clared this practicable.
In the foreign trade the average tonnage
of vessels visiting Savannah's port has In-
creased 115 per cent in the past twelve
years. The largest freight steamships
afloat now regularly visit Savannah for
cargoes. The chief articles of export are
cotton, rosins, spirits turpentine, lumber
and timber, phosphate rock, iron and steel
and manufactured forms, cotton manu-
factured goods, cotton seed oil and other
products of the cotton seed, fruits and
vegetables and miscellaneous m.qnufcts-

Cotton, the South's great staple Industry,
is handled in enormous quantities at Sa-

ord for the largest cargo of cotton export-
ed In November, 19, the British steam-
ship St. Andrew was cleared from this port
with a cargo equivalent to 36,379 square
babies of 500 Ibs each, her registered tonnage
being 4,411. Savannah Is the outlet through
which the Southern mills, in increasing
numbers, ship their products to the mar-
kets of the world.
Savannah handles yearly over a million
barrels of roains and turpentine. It is the
greatest port and the chief market of the
world for these products of the South.
A sight of a general view of Seaboard
Air Lines at Savannah is indeed a great
one. Four million dollars have been spent
on these terminals in the past five years.
and here is the longest dock in America
being 2,20 feet in length.
While Savannah Is comparatively in the
Infancy of its Industrial development, It
possesses a large number of most import-
ant manufacturing establishments, and
many of minor sise are prospering and de-
veloping rapidly, and increasing their capi-
tal, output and wage roll. The fifty prin-
cipal manufacturing concerns of the city
now employ about 4,300 hands, and have an
output yearly of the value of over $8,000,-
000. Every indication points to Savannah
becoming one of the chief manufacturing
clues of the nation within the next few
years. The stability of Its present indus-
tries, the success they have achieved and
the rapid increase in the capital invested,
the number of hands employed and the
value of their output speak strongly of
Savannah's future along this line. The
largest industries are located on the river
front, where the advantages of cheap
handling of their raw materials and the
manufactured products offer splendid In-
ducements. Ample room still exists there
for a number of industries. At other points
in or adjacent to the city land suitable for
further manufactories is to be had that
possess admirable transportation facili-
ties. One of the great advantages Savan-
nah possesses as a manufacturing point,
outside of the superior water and rail
transportation facilities. is the mildness
and equableness of the climate. Work
here, either indoor or outdoor, is not In-
terferred with and hampered by severe
weather, either extreme of heat or cold.
It is probable that there s less loss of
time in the average manufacturing estab-
lishments in Savannah from climatic
causes than In any other town of the
United States. There is also naturally a
considerable saving In heating, and the
long days enable the operation of plants
without artificial lights over the greater
part of the year. Fuel is cheap, taxes low,
labor easily trained. From Savannah its
manufactured products are distributed over
a half dosen or more Southern States with
an aggregate population of over ten mil-
lions. These States are rapidly growing in
wealth and people; their demands are
broadening every year and manufacturers
located at Savannah are in a position to
meet their wants underq onditions that are
most favorable for success. Many open-
ings exist for new enterprises. Considera-
ble of the goods of all kinds used in this
section are still bought from the North and
West, at great expense for handling and
transportation, which could and should be
made at home. Manufactures who en-
ter this field study the demands of the peo-
ple and meet them, will place themselves
on the high road to wealth. Savannah of-
fers every possible encouragement to men
embarking in manufacturing industries,
large or small Especially favorable are
the opportunities for manufactures into
which lumber, cotton and wool largely en-
ter, Savannah being a great market for
these raw products of the South. Every
article which enters into daily use could be
made here profitably. Savannah's manu-
factures now include fertilizer works, soap
factories, breweries, machine shops, iron
foundries, copper foundries, railroad car
works, locomotive works, candy factories,
cigar factories, crate and box factories,
broom factories, baking powder factories,
copper works, marine railways, Ice fac-
tories, sash, door and blind factories, plan-
ing mills, rice mills, mattress factories.
harness works, woodenware factory, cofmn
factory, roin oil works, paint and var-
nish works, proprietary medicine works,
boot and shoe factories, canning factories
and cotton seed oil works, etc.
Its Jobbing trade, from a statement pub-
lished in 1904, wa over I M,00.00 yearly,
divided as follows:
Groceries ...................................... 1,00
Dry goods ........................... 7,0 ,000

The section of the South tributary to Sa-
vannah sl rapidly developing in population
and wealth. With its growth the Jobbing
trade of Savannah must continue to ex-
pand and prosper.
Savannah has a thoroughly organized
municipal government, with all the depart-
ments pertaining to the most modern city,
well equipped for their work and main-
tained at all times in a first-class condition.
The city revenues, about 1300.000 a year,

THE JACKSONVILLE COOPERAGE CO.
There can be no doubt whatever that
there Is only one way to be correct in de-
scribing the operations of any firm, and
that is by making a personal Inspection.
This, we are happy to say, has been done
by our correspondent in viewing the splen-
did works of the Jacksonville Cooperage
Cof. situated at Evegreen avenue, Spring-
field. Jacksonville, Fla.
This company do an enormous trade as
manufacturers In general cooperage, em-
bracing the making of all kinds of tight
barrels, staves and headings; also oil, tur-
pentine and syrup barrels. Of course. it
can be readily understood why this up-
to-date firm have made the exceptional
strides that ha been made by them since
coming to Jacksonville. but when we have
mentioned the names of W. T. Riley, Pres-
ident; J. A. G. Carson. Vice President; and
their energetic and courteous Secretary
and Treasurer, . Scovil, it Is easily un-
derstood and fully accepted.
Their plants are splendidly equipped with
all the latest machinery for producing their
goods, and It is indeed a sight on going
through their vast works to see the ex-
traordinary activity displayed tLren.
Jacksonville is Indeed proud of this ir-
did company, which is one of the principle
industries of the city.

is quite unnecessary for us to add a sin-
gle word more in speaking of this magnfl-

also of the enormous trade that is done
by them within its doors. Their vast store
is a sight to be seen, and we believe we are
correct, and feel we will be supported by
all who had visited it, by saying that no-
where in the State is there a finer o larg-

As me of busme we are always inter-
ested to learn who ar the men who are "up
and doag." who t is, so to speak, who so
larly help to make Savannah what it is
to-day, and t is not difcult to know who
are its promieat pioneers when we have
before us the same of Hartfelder. Garbutt
& Co.. of West Bay street, a Savannah
ra who ae undoutedly aiding materi-
ally the bu Mldi up of the city, a it
were, ad by this we mean to convey that
the great progress made by this flrm is a
probt pltive that buyers of machinery
know where to place their orders, whether
for minim railroad suppies, engines, ma-
chinery or boiers. etc.
The active members of the firm are
Memsr s P. Hartfelder. whoe reputation

lies Hi wide world, and of whom one can-
not refrain from speaking In the highest
terms of admdration for the exceedingly

THE SOUTHERN BANK OF THE STATE
The report that has Just fallen into our
hands of the semi-annual statement of the
Southern Bank of the State of Georgia,
Savannah, Ga.. at the close of business end-
ing December 31. 1904. gives a very positive
assurance that the banking business of this
fine, reliable bank is on the right track.
so to speak, and full speed ahead. Nor is
this to be wondered at when one learns
who are its helmsmen. The amount of
money deposited with the Southern Bank
of the State of Georgia during the past
half year was something exceptional,
which shows conclusively the extraordin-
ary progress this bank has made, a proof
positive (if proof were wanting) that it
holds the fullest onf dence of the people.
The resources of a city and the solidity
of Its business Interests are largely
Judged by the class and character of its
banks, and there Is no feature of Its mu-
nicipal commerce that shows more posi-
tively the unswerving and substantial
growth of Savannah than the Southern
Bank of the State of Georgia. with which
the ever courteous vice president, Horace
A. Crane, as one of its director. Ia assured
of a brilliant future.
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 with en-
ergy, enterprise and shrewd native ability
stands the fine firm of MeMillan Bros, of
the "Southern Copper Works," at IAberty
and Price streets. Without doubt, no one
can make an impeachment against this
firm for being behind the times, as it were.
They have been for many years leading
the way at a quick pace in making Sa-
vannah what it Is to-day. MeMillan Bros..
as is well known, are the leading and fin-
est manufacturers of "Turpentine Stills"
of the very latest and moat approved kinds,
as well as being general metal workers,

In conclusion, we cannot refrain from say-
ing that Savannah is Indeed proe of Me-
MHlan Bros, who ar ever on the ide a
progress and development. It in upon thi
basis that the access of their lhea beine
has bee built, which is of many year'
standing, and the apprecation of the trade

SAVANNAHH A CITY OF OPPORTUNI-
Acting upon orders received from our
editor and manager, Mr. James Hollomon.
I have this past fortnight visited Savan-
nah. Ga., the "City of Opportunities." and
in collecting from every possible source
the accompanying authentic facts and in-
formation concerning this most charming
and progressive city, feel that my duty.
as well as my orders, are not completed
until I have made a grateful acknowledge-
ment to all Its chief citizens with whom
I have had the honor to converse, for their
great kadnes shown me, and especially
would I desire to mention the names and
thank the following gentlemen in particu-
lar for their unfailing courtesy and valu-
able assistance given me: Colonel Estill
(Bavannah Morning News), The Hon. P. A.
Stovall (Savannah Press). Mr. W. J. Don-
ian, Secretary Chamber of Commerce;
Hon. H. G. Pierce and Mr. Sassy, Secre-
tary Board of Trade.
There are many others from whom I re-
ceived the most friendly aid and of whom
I have, however humbly, tried to ac-
knowledge their many courtesies and lib-
eral help, which will be found in other
columns of this edition. Respectfully
yours CHARLES TEMPLE,

ROUMANIAN TURPENTINE FORESTS
The Ministry of Forests of Runmania has
decided to replant the forests with pine
trees during the ensuing spring, some two
and a half million young trees being put
dawn. This should mean in the process of
time a good source of turpentine and rosin.
NEGOTIABLE WAREHOUSE RECEIPTS.
A report from Little Rock, Ark., says
that J. E. Walsh, superintendent of the
Gulf Compress Co., which operates a cot-
ton press and warehouse there, has been
notified by Mr. C. C. Hanson, of Atlanta,
Ga., president of the company, that the
American Bonding Co., of Baltimore. under
a contract made with the Gulf Compress
Co., now guarantees all the warehouse re-
ceipts issued by the latter, and thereby
making them negotiable at any place in the
country. This new plan, it is said, has
aroused special interest at Little Rock and
Arkansas, as it enables many owners to
hold their cotton while realizing something
on it immediately. It is true that ware-
house receipts have been accepted by the
local banks, but as the new plan will make
them acceptable anywhere, cotton owners,
will be assisted in obtaining loans, even
if local banks have all that kind of securi-
ty that they desire. The Gulf Compress
Co., operates warehouses in a large num-
ber of towns and cities throughout the
A GREAT HARDWOOD INDUSTRY,
The Eight Principd Spcies of the Southern Aplm.Liam Heav Bm Shtudied
by the Bureau of Fotrdr.
The greatest area of hardwood forest and
the largest supply of hardwoods in the
United States are in the region comprising
the Southern Appalachian Mountains and
the country lying between them and the
Mississipp river. For the last two or three
years the Bureau of Forestry has been
carefully studying this region, which is
rich in commercial species, especially yel-
low poplar, white, red, black and chestnut
oak, chestnut, white pine, and hemlock.
A study was first made of the proportion
of each of these species in the various
types of forest, their merchantable yield,
and their rate of growth. Last summer
eleven agents of the Bureau were assigned
to an Inotitgatlon of the market condi-
tions goveoing the logging and use of each
of these species, and twelve more to a
study of the important characteristics of
each tree and the possibilities of each un-
der management. The data obtained in
this and previous studies are now being
formulated for publication. Several bulle-
tins will be issued, one of a general char-
acter discussing the conditions of the re-
gion as a whole, the others dealing with
the several species particularly.
The field study covered more than 400
counties. and included all of Tennessee,
Kentucky and West Virginia, the ex-
treme western part of Maryland, the west-
ern portions of Virginia and the two Caro-
Unas, and the northern parts of Georgia
and Alabama. The Bureau agents first vis-
ited the lumber centers of each county to
interview the mill men and lumber dealers.
Information was sought, especially on
these points: The remaining stands of
timber and their quality; the annual cut
and the usms to which it is put; land and
stumpage values, the cost of logging and
milling, and the prices of the finished pro-
duct; the methods of loggaig employed, the
specifications for timber in common use,
and how these specifications are changing,
and the principal markets for lumber. The
object of this preliminary work was to
gain a thorough understanding of the mar-
set and business conditions prevailing in
the hardwood regions. Bach knowledge
was necessary before the men could go
into the woods and work out intelligently
the best and most practical methods of
handling the forests.
The study of the general forest condi-
tions and the chrecteriti s of each of
the Important species followed. This study
included inquiry into the requirements of
each species as to light, soll and moisture.
its seeding and reproductive capacity, its
form and development in different types of
forest, and the ways in which the various
species affect each other in the competi-
tion for place and light; also the present
methods of cutting, waste in logging, and
the effects of logging upon the forest. To
determine the chances of natural repro-
duction under existing logging methods
second growth and culled lands in all
stages were carefully studied. The effects
of fire and grazing upon the forest were
also considered. Until the voluminous
data thus obtained have been tabulated
and compared absolute figures and conclu-
sions cannot be announced, but sufficient
progress has been made to warrant some
general statements of conclusions.
For market value and amount of stand-
ing timber yellow poplar and white oak
are the two most Important trees of the
region. These species were formerly
found throughout almost the entire region
in merchantable quantities but they have
been cut so extensively where there are
transportation facilities that It is now us-
ually necessary to go back a long distance
into the woods to nd first-class stands of
either of them. Poplar attains magnifi-
cent size in the coves of the mountain dis-
tricts and in the rich river bottoms of cen-
tral Tennessee and Kentucky, but its best
development is reached in the higher moun-
tains of Tennessee and North Carolina.
White oak reaches its best development in
the river valleys of Tennessee and Ken-
tucky. White poplar always forms a
small proportion of the timber of the area;
it very often forms a large proportion of
the merchantable timber. Whiteoak is
present in very much greater numbers
than poplar over the region as a whole.
and occasionally forms over 50 per cent of
Lumbering has had a serious effect on
the reproduction of both poplar and white
oak. When the white oak is cut, as a gen-
eral rule It is partially replaced by infe-
rior species, as the red and black oaks.
Thus in many cases where the virgin
stand contained over O per cent of white
oak, the second crop contains less than 10
per cent. Often when poplar has been
lumbered, only the best trees have been
cut, and as these were comparatively few
In number and occrred at Irregular iter-
vals the forest has not been opened up
enough to let In sueficent light to allow
young poplars to start growing. n addi-
tion, poplar seedling are very easily in-
ured by fire; even slight ground fires ill
them. Fires have been very common
throughout the region, and thus susnm-
ful reproduction of poplar has often been
Hemlock occurs over a small portion of
the region, and white pine over a still smal-
ler part; both confine themselves to the
mountainous sections. As a rule hemlock
has not been considered merchantable be-
cause it is generally Impossible to log and
sell It in northern markets in competition
with hemlock from Michigan and Penn-
sylvania. The little remaining white pine
is lumbered in a few localities on a large
scale, and the supply will soon be ex-
Chestnut is very abundant. It forms a
large proportion of the stand in the moun-
tain districts, but decreases in quantity
westward, until it practically disappears
In Western Tennessee and Kentucky. Ma-
ture chestnut is damaged more severely by
fire than any of the other species of the
region. A considerable part of its mature
timber is defective for this reason. Much
of the timber is also wormy. In the past
but little chestnut has been cut for lum-
ber, but the output is now increasing. A
new use for chestnut, which has developed
very rapidly In the last few years, so for
making tanning extract. For this purpose
all grades and sises of chestnut above
about five inches in d diameter are used
There are a number of factories maknl
the extract, one of whici consumes NB
cords of this wood daily. This Industry
makes possible the utilization of the limbs
and tops and the defective chestnut, which
otherwise would be wasted, and materially
assists in conservative management by
making this timber more valuable and
cleaner logging practicable.
Chestnut oak is abundant in the moun-
tains, its stand decreasing westward. It
is confined chiefly to the ridges, and in
most sections ls short bodied and-of little
value for sawlogs. Itis usually expensive
to lumber because of its Inaccessibilty.
The chief value of chestnut oak in this
region has been for tan bark, for which, in
some places, It has been largely cut.
Bed and black oak are most abundant
in the western lowland part of the region
where they often form over 70 per cent of
the stand. In addition to their use in large
amounts for lumber and slack cooperagse
they are also now extensively cut along
the navigable rivers for railroad ties. for
which purpose preservative treatment has
recently made them available. These oaks
form but a relatively small part of the for-
ests in the eastern mountainous districts
where In the past almost none of them
have been cut, owing to their low market
value. But now lumbermen who are oper-
ating in the mountains, take these oaks
along with the poplars and white oaks.
There ae a number or large permanent
mills, but over the region as a whole most
of the lumbering is still done by portable
mills. These move through the timber, and
the cutting in cleaner than it formerly was.
This heavier cutting, on account of the
requirements of the two most Important
species, poplar and white oak, for light,
Is usually a good thing for the future
crop, especially for poplar reproduction.
The demands upon this hardwood forest
are enormous and varied. Great indus-
tries employing large manufacturing plants
depend upon it for mill supplies. The most
important of these industries are those us-
ing hardwoods for slack and tight cooper-
age, for lumber, furniture, finishing, rail-
road ties, tannin extract and wagon stock.
In addition to furnishing wood for all
these and other purposes, the forest of this
region has a vital function to perform In
protecting a water shed upon which a num-
ber of States depend for a constant supply
of water. It is doubtful whether the Bu-
reau of Forestry has ever undertaken a
more Important study, and its forthcom-
ing bulletins should prove very valuable to
many commercial interests, as well as to
forestry in general.

MAYOR MERMAN MYERS.
No man in the world Ia better acquainted
and more devoted to the affairs and inter-
erts of Savannah or of its rich contiguous
territory, and in closer touch with the hap-
pines and welfare of its citizens than Mr.
Herman Myers, Savannah's noble and
gracious mayor of this charming city, and
to attempt to give a true expression of the
high esteem in which Savannah's chief
executive is held by all who have the for-
tune to be ts sons and fair daughters
would indeed be a somewhat difficult task,
almost an Impossible one, but especially
to "the stranger within its gates," and it
Is the latter who, In receiving the many
courtesies and valuable assistance at his
hands, is helpless with mere words at his
command to give true expression of that
rel gratitude which he so deeply feels and
for Which he Is so deeply indebted.
Mayor Myers' administration has (as is
well known and recognized by every one)
been one of remarkable success, one that
will ever associate him with the history of
the city and its progress. He has been one
in the front rank of the army of Savan-
nahiasn who have carried the city through
succeeding periods of calamity and depres-
sian into the full and clear light of its
present commercial prestige and promise.
giving to It that high state of grandeur it
now holds. Without a doubt, and with good
reason, too, Savannah need well be proud
of its chief, who is ever on the side of
progress and development, a true devotee
to the interest and happiness of all, be
they rich or poor, high or low.
NATIONAL TANK AND EXPORT COM-
'Tim always a great pleasure to speak of,

Export Company of Savannah, Ga., U. S.
A. TIs one of the city's leading enter-
prises, identified closely with its promi-
nence in the structural trade. Being an
exceptionally high class tank and export
company, their tanks are well equipped
and thoroughly enameled and are con-
veniently situated at the terminals of the
8. A. L. and A. C. L. Railways. And what
is also important to learn and bear in mind
is that their charges for storing have been
revised, the company especially asking that
any information desired may be made di-
rect to either of the following members of
the firm, who are: John R. Young, Presi-
dent; A. D. Covington, Vice President, and

FILARIDA CONVICTS LEASED.
C. H. Barnes & Co. of Jacksonville Pays
$207 Each for Them.
At Tallahassee Wednesday the contract
for the Florida convicts for the next four
years was awarded to C. H. Barnes & Co.
of Jacksonville, their bid being 2)7 per
capital per year for all convicts.
The contract was awarded by the Board
of State Institutions, Governor Broward
presiding, after the bids had been opened
in the morning in the presence of a num-
ber of naval stores men and lawyers. From
the names of the bidders it is evident that
there were only naval- stores operators or
factors to put in a bid for the convicts The
bids were opened as follows:
M. G. Warde and Walter Ray, for all
convicts, $165.75; for one-half of them,
$180.25 per head; one-third, 581.25.
C. H. Barnes & Co., for all, 207.
A. Cord & Co., one-third of convicts,
R. H. Paul & Co., for all, $l8.10.
E. G. Rose, for all, $16&.6
W. J. Hillman, for all, $174.
Enterprise Lumber Company, for one-
W. J. Bryan. for all, $95.
Florida Naval Stores and Commission
Company, by W. F. Coachman, $187.20; $255
for 50 per cent, first choice selected.
Downing & Blount, for all, 203.50.
George L. Drew & Co., $18.5 for one-
When the board met in the afternoon the
bids were all carefully considered and it
was determined that the bid of the Barnes
Company was the most advantageous one
to the State. The contract was awarded
and the company notified the board that It
was ready to present the required bond for
acceptance at any time.
There has been great interest in connec-
tion with the disposition of the State con-
victs ever since the advertisement asking
for bids appeared In the papers of the
State. Owing to the great Improvements
which had been made in the care and con-
dition of the convicts by the Florida Naval
Stores and Commission Company, the pres-
ent lessees, the people of Florida had as-
sumed a more active interest in the dispo-
sition of convicts than was formerly felt.
The price which the successful bidders
offered was a great surprise, however,
since it was an advance of $55.50 per capi-
ta over the price paid by the present les-
sees, and means an annual increase, figur-
ing on 1,200 convicts, of about M6,6O0, or an
increase for the four years of the lease of
The contract of the present lessees does
not expire until January 7 of next year,
which will give the new lessees abundant
time to arrange for the caring of the pris-
oners and for the organisation which is es-
sential to their keeping and proper care.

Arrangements looking to Establishing in
Georgia and Florida.
Arrangements are now being made for
the establishment of a number of colonies
along the line of the Georgia, Florida and
Alabama Railroad, several of the colonies
to be located In Southwest Georgia and
several in Northwest Florida, says the Sa-
Judge E. M. Blalock of Jonesboro, Ga.,
and Colonel W. M. Legg of Bainbridge,
Ga., general manager of the Georgia, Flor-
ida and Alabama, were in the city yester-
day consulting with Mr. J. P. Williams,
the president of the road, in regard to the
It was announced after the conference
that several of the colonies would be es-
tablished just as soon as possible. Within
a yea these officials expect to have pros-
perous colonies in both Georgia and Flori-
da along the Georgia, Florida and Alabama.
The plan is to establish colonies for the
raising of tobacco and for truck farming,
the country through which the road runs
being admirably adapted for both these
purposes. Efforts will be made to get peo-
ple from Ohio and neighboring States, and
also Virginia and North Carolina to settle
along the line. Special Inducements will
Colonies are to be established in Decatur,
Early, Randolph, Miller and Calhoun coun-
ties in Georgia and Gadsden, Leon and
Franklin counties in Florida. For some of
these colonies arrangements have already
been made and several hundred settlers
will probably be secured during the year.
Two of the colonies are to be in Franklin
county, Florida, and two in Decatur coun-
ty, Georgia. One of the colonies in Deca-
tur county will be about ten miles north
of Bainbridge and the other about seven
miles south of that point. Another colony
will be established about ten miles aorth
of Tallahassee, on Lake Jackson. Arrange-
ments are now being made for a colony In
Early county, Georgia. also.
Both Judge Blalock and Colonel Legg
state they expect to see the country
through which the road runs develop very
rapidly within the next few years. Colonel
Legg states that Bainbridge will undoubt-
edly become an important distributing
point in the near future. Judge Blakely is
especially interested in the development of
the town of Lanark, which is just below
Tallahassee. Lanark, he says, will be the
residence portion of Carrabelle, the port
which is now being developed.
A hotel has been built there and lots are
being sold rapidly, says Judge Blalock.
There is a mineral spring with excellent
properties, he says, and an ideal health re-
sort will in time be built. A number of At-
lanta people are to have homes there, he
says. The country is ideal for sports of
all kinds, and now that it has become ac-
cessible, he expects to see many visitors
WHITE BLAKESLEE MANUFACTU-
A visit of one of our representatives to
the manufacturing plant of the White-

bles us to favor our readers with a few
facts in reference to this energetic and
The new factories, which have been
equipped without regard to first expense
with the finest machine tools and facil-
ities for handling their special line of
work, represent undoubtedly the most ef-
ficient and well managed plant of this kind
in the country. Their factory buildings are
of the most modern machine shop construe-
tion, and every convenience is afforded
their employes for producing the best work
possible. Their line of engines and con-
nected outfits for 190 represents the most
complete and carefully thought out lne
of goods on the market this year. Their
new catalogue for 106 will be mailed to
any one who is interested in gasoline en-
gines or connected outfits, and covers the
requirements of a man desiring anything

H. P. and from 2 1-2 to I H. P. of the
horizontal line, together with a large num-
ber of pumping outfits, etc. The success-
ful business of this concern sl conclusive
evidence of the high standard of excellence
reached in their line of manufacture and
liberal treatment of their trade. We wish
for them, as they deserve, an unpreciden-
ted year's business.
