FROM THE TREE TO THE CONSUMER. A
IN this issue of the INDUSTRIAL RECORD will be found
the suggestion that an Export Company to be organ-
ized in Jacksonville next week by turpentine opera-
tors. This is the final move in making the naval stores produ
cers absolute masters of their industry, and is made at a time
when conditions point to full success. Time was when the
operator's domain was circumscribed to his own operations
around his still. Then he went one step further and became
a factor and financed his own products. Today practically
every factorage house In the turpentine belt is owned by
operators and practically every operator is interested in
a factorage house. To this time, however, the distributing has
been done by an association of exporters whose interests
have, in many cases, been antagonistic to the producers.
Now the producers should take the final step and supply
through their own organization the consumptive demands.
S* 5 They manufacture, they finance and they will distribute.

Dedsioa Against the Railroads in
TwoCent Yellow Pine Advance,
The Interstate Commerce Commission
has announced its decisions in the two
now famous cases brought several months
ago by the Georgia Interstate Sawmill As-
sociation and the Central Yellow Pine As-
sociation, which organizations cover
practically all the yellow pine manufac-
turing interests of the Southeast and Gulf
States, and who, as it will doubtless be re-
membered, brought suit before the com-
mission complaining of a two cents ad-
vance per hundred pounds instituted by
the railroads, effective June, 1903, on yel-
low pine lumber from Southeastern and
Gulf State points to Ohio and Mississippi
river crossings and beyond. The decision
is against the railroad interests in the
premises, a majority of the commission
holding that the advance in rates com-
plained of was, and is, not warranted, and
that the resulting increased rates are un-
reasonable and unjust. Commissioners
Knapp and Fifer dissented from the ma-
jority and held the advance not to be in
violation of law.
Of course, the final and absolute out-
come of this decision is yet in obeyance,
owing to the limited powers of the Inter-
state Commerce Commission, and as to
whether the decisions of the commission
may be finally applicable is dependent, of
course, upon the determination of the
court on the points and ruling made by
the commission in the premises; but it is
nevertheless of much gratification to the
Georgia Interstate Sawmill Association,
which was the father and prime mover in
the opposition to this advance, that the
ideas and contentions underlying their
original and systematic opposition to this
two cents advance met with like view by
the Interstate Commerce Commission,
and the triumph of this opposition is cer-
tainly a tribute to organized efforts and
to the progressive and aggressive spirit of
the Georgia Interstate Sawmill Associa-
Among other rulings is one that the ad-
vance in rates complained of was the re-
sult of concerted action by defendants and
other carriers, and while the question
whether such concert of action is in vio-
lation of the "anti-trust act" is for de-
termination only by the courts, it is the
province and duty of the commission,
when the reasonbleness of rates is in issue
before it, to consider whether the ad-
vanced rates resulted from untrammeled
competition or were fixed by concert of
action or combination of the carriers.
The case has been pending since the
spring of 1903, and has been bitterly con-
tested on both sides. The bill was first
filed in the United States Circuit Court of
Macon, over which Judge Speer presides,
and a temporary restraining order pre-
venting the increased rate of two cents
per 100 pounds from being put into effect
At the hearing of the case before Judge
Speer it was held that the court of equity
had full power to enjoin the roads from
enforcing the new rates, but that the ques-
tion of the reasonableness of the rates
should be determined by the Interstate
Commerce Commission. Accordingly the
case was referred to the commission for
its opinion, and the decision Friday morn-
ing is the result.
Ellis, Wimbish & Ellis, of Atlanta, and
F. G. Boatright, of Tifton, the attorneys
for the sawmill association, will take the
decision of the interstate Commerce Com-
mission to Judge Speer, and on the
strength of it ask for a permanent injunc-
tion against the enforcement of the in-
creased rates. They have every reason to
believe that the injunction will be granted
in view of the fact that Judge Speer has
already decided he has full power to issue
the injunction, and only desired a decision
of the Interstate Commerce Commission
on the question of the reasonableness of
the increased rates.
The announcement of the victory be-
fore the Interstate Commerce Commission
will be hailed with delight throughout the
South, says the New York Lumber Trade
Journal, as hundreds of sawmills were af-
fected by the increased rate and forced to
pay two cents per 100 pounds more on
lumber shipments than they did before
the new rate was put in.
The fight over the advance in rates on
lumber has been a bitter one, as the new
rates practically have had the effect of
driving out yellow pine from the North-
west markets and worked a great hard-
ship on sawmill men in Georgia and Flor-
ida. Ellis, Wimbish & Ellis, of Atlanta,
and Attorney Boatright, of Tifton, made
able and exhaustive arguments in the
United States Circuit Court, winning a
victory there, and now the announcement
comes that the Interstate Cdmmerce Com-
mission has declared the increased rates
unjust, unreasonable and excessive. With
this decision of the Interstate Commerce
Commission before him the outlook is
bright for a permanent injunction against
the rates being put in. The history of
the case is well known to all lumbermen.
In the spring of 1903 the railway com-
panies in Georgia and neighboring States
advanced the freight on lumber shipped
from Georgia and Florida to Ohio river
crossings and beyond two cents per 100
The Georgia Interstate Sawmill Asso-
eiation, composed of all the large sawmill
plants of Georgia and Florida, declared
that this rate was excessive, unureasona-
ble and unjust and would have the effect
of driving out yellow pine lumber from
the markets of the Northwest. After
much protests and many negotiations
with the railway authorities and obtain-
ing no relief or promise of it, the sawmill
association, through its attorneys, Ellis,
Wimbish & Ellis, of Atlanta, and F. G.
Boatright, of Tifton, filed a bill in the
United States Circuit Court at Macon, and
Judge Speer granted a temporary re-
straining order directed to the railway
companies and enjoining them from put-
ting the rate into effect until the hearing.
The case came up for hearing at Macon
and the railroad companies denied the jur-
isdiction of the court by demurrer and at
the same time filed answers denying that
the rates were unreasonable.
The court held that the court of equity
did have jurisdiction and full power to en-
join, but as the facts were disputed the
temporary order was vacated and the ques-
tion of fact and reasonableness of rate
was referred to the Interstate Commerce
The commission convened in Atlanta

several months to write out the immense

hy the facts, circumstances and conditions
disclosed in the case, and that the result-
ing rates are unreasonable and unjust.
Among other rulings is one that the ad-
vance in rates complained of was the re-
sult of concerted action by defendants and
other carriers; and while the question
whether such concert of action is in vio-
lation of the "anti-trust" act, is for de-
termination only by the courts, it is the
province and duty of the commission,
when the reasonableness of rates is in is-
sue before it, to consider whether the ad-
vanced rates resulted from untrammeled
competition, or were fixed by concert of
action or combination of the carriers.
The commission further holds that the
test of the reasonableness of a rate is not
the amount of profit in the business of the
shipper or manufacturer, but whether the
rate yields a reasonable compensation for
the services performed. The rates on lum-
ber prior to the advance complained of are
found to have been reasonably high when
compared with the rates on other com-
modities, which are at all analogous to
lumber in respect to value, volume, risk,
cost of handling and other circumstances
and conditions affecting the traffic. Nu-
merous other reasons are stated in sup-
port of the main ruling.
In the Central Yellow Pine ease the
complaint was of an advance of two cents
per 100 pounds on April 15, 1903, except
as to one of the carriers, as to which it
became effective June 22, 1903, in the
rates on lumber in carloads from points
in lumber-producing territories east of the
Mississippi river in Louisiana, Mississippi
and part of Alabama. to Ohio river points.
On September 9, 1899, the rate previously
in effect from May 1, 1894, was advanced
one cent, making a total advance of three
cents since May 1, 1894. The rates prior
to the advance on April 15, 1903, were re-
munerative to the carriers.
Substantially the same rulings are
made as in the case above mentioned, and
the commission also decides in this case
that the advance of two cents per 100
pounds was not warranted and that the
resulting increased rates are unreasona-
ble and unjust.
APPEAL TO THE COMMISSION.
Florida Saw Mill Men Show the Unjust-
ness of Freight Advances.
In accordance with action taken at the
Georgia Interstate Sawmill Association
February 21, the secretary arranged with
the Florida Railroad Commission at Tal-
lahassee, Fla., to hear a delegation of
Florida sawmill people regarding gthe ad-
vance in lumber freight rates, which hear-
ing was had on March 3. There were pres-
ent the following:
F. E. Waymer, Otter Creek Lumber
Company, Jacksonville, Fla.
J. A. McClellan, Jefferson, Fla.
L. N. Morrison. Jefferson, Fla.
W. S. West, Valdosta, Ga.
J. R. Roberts, Roberts Lumber Co,
E. E. West, Jacksonville, Fla.
J. W. West, Valdosta, Ga.
J. B. Conrad, Bond Lumber Company,
William B. Stillwell, Southern Pine
Company of Georgia, Savannah, Ga.
J. E. Hudson, Hampton, Fla.
C. H. Lutz, Owenaboro Shingle Com-
pany. Pasco. Fla.
J. A. Dezell, Mt. Pleasant, Fla.
J. L. Greer, Greer. Fla.
Thomas 3M. Hall, Woodville, Fla.
The sawmill people met first in the par-
lor of the I-on Hotel, Tallahassee, Fla.,
and formally organized by electing Colonel
W. S. West chairman and Elwood C. Har-
rell, secretary. Chairman West stated the
object of the meeting, and after consider-
able discussion it was decided to present
a rate schedule to the Commission for
their consideration, which was thought to
be fair to railroads and shippers; it was
also decided that Colonel West, Mr. Way-
mer and Mr. Stillwell should be the
spokesmen for the mill men. The meet-
ing adjourned to 9:30 a. m. and proceeded
to the office of the secretary of the Rail-
road Commission in the State Capitol
building, where they were most pleasantly
received by Commissioners J. L. Morgan
and R. Hudson Burr and Beretary Royal
C. Dunn. Commissioner Morgan acted as
chairman, stating that it was much to be
regretted that Mr. Jefferson B. Browne,
chairman of the Railroad Comminsion,
was unable to be present. Commissioner
Morgan also stated that the commission
was very glad to be able to give the en-
tire day, if necessary, to the Florida mill
men, and requested that they proceed with
the matter in hand. Colonel West spoke
first for the mill men. Colonel West stat-
ed that in view of a large number of mills
having been built with the understanding
that their product would be shipped at
rates then in effect, that it was manifest-
ly unjust for the advances to be made; in
fact, that if the rates as advanced should
stand, it would result in actual ruin of
many who had made investments in the
State; he also called attention to the
weight of Florida lumber as compared
with that from Georgia, saying that it
was much heavier, also that on account of
freight rates to western points it was al-
most out of the question to place orders
in that territory; therefore their output
necessarily went to the East via the ports,
principally Jacksonville and Fernandina,
and the item of difference in water rates
from the Florida ports as compared with
those from Georgia (amounting to $1-per
thousand and more), the Florida mill man
had to stand. Colonel West went on to
say that it was also true that Florida lum-
ber did not bring so much as Georgia lum-
ber, calling attention to reports of Flor-
ida and Georgia mill men at the last meet-
ing of the Sawmill Association, where
there was brought out a difference of from
$1 to $2.50. Mr. Stillwell them spoke, say-
ing that he was at this meeting, not be-
cause he was operating a sawmill in
Florida, all their mills being located in the
State of Georgia, but with a view of as-
sisting his Florida friends in getting a re-
duction in Florida lumber rates. Mr. Still-
well gave the commission some interesting
facts, saying that although the lumber
rates as advanced might be identical with
those in Georgia, still, in view of the fact
that the majority of the Georgia shippers
used special rates, it was not a fair com-
parison. He also stated that in his opin-
ion the Georgia rates should be reduced
20 per cent and that it was the intention
of the association to make such a request.
Mr. Stillwell and Mr. Waymer spoke very
interestingly, certainly giving the commis-
sion food for thought. The commission
asked the mill men quite a number of
questions, bringing out facts that would
be of interest to them in the further con-
sideration of this matter. One signifi-
cant remark was made at this hearing.
Mr. J. W. West, of the Strickland Lum-
ber Company, Kathleen, Fla., who is also
a very large holder of timber lands, tur-
pentine operator and capitalist, statdd
that his concern would build a railroad to
the Gulf if the railroads were successful
in having the advanced rate stand.
On account of the inconvenience of get-
ting to Tallahassee, the commission were
requested to hold the next hearing in this
rate question at Jacksonville; they stat-
ed that they could not say positively, but
thought this would be satisfactory, and
would advise Mr. Harrell, of the Sawmill

fred and Harry Masters brought home

ster rattlesnakes, one measuring C feet 6

4 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Forester Pinchot Talks on Forest Problems.
Hon. Gifford Pinchot, chief of the Bu-
ran of Forestry of the United States De-
partment of Agriculture, and who is con-
ceded to be the best posted man in the
United States in regard to forest preserva-
tion and all problems relating to forestry,
arrived in Jacksonville Thursday and at-
tended a meeting of the Board of Trade
Committee on forestry.
For several years the Jacksonville Board
of Trade has been endeavoring to secure
the enactment of legislation providing for
the protection of the forests of Florida,
and the establishment of forest preserves
in this State. With this object in view,
Chairman rving H. Welch, chairman of
the Board of Trade Committee on For-
estry, secured the attendance of Mr. Pin-
chot, and the large attendance at the
meeting Thursday showed that the ques-
tion is one that is attracting the interest
of the leading men in the lumber and
naval stores industries of the State.
As any legal action that may be taken
will have to be in the shape of a law en-
acted by the Legislature of the State,
Senator Telfair Stockton and Representa-
tives H. H. Buckman and S. H. Melton
were invited to meet with the Committee
on Forestry and take part in the proceed-
Instead of advising the preparation of a
bill providing for the establishment of
forest reservations in the State, Mr. Pin-
chot pointed out that what first should be
done was to provide for a thorough in-
vestigation of the forestry situation by
competent foresters, and then take ac-
tion upon the report submitted by them.
He stated that the Bureau of Forestry
of the national government was prepared
to stand one-half the expense of making
such a thorough study of the subject.
provided the State appropriated the other
half of the amount. He was of the opin-
ion that $8,000 or $10.000 would cover the
expense of the investigation and study of
the situation in Florida and that an ap-
propriation of $4,000 or $5,000 by the
State for this purpose would be all that
the coming session of the Legislature
should be asked to appropriate.
After this matter had been fully explain-
ed by Mr. Pinchot, to the satisfaction of
all present, on motion of H. A. McEachern,
the chairman of the meeting was author-
ized to appoint a committee of five mem-
bers of the Board of Trade to take up the
matter and endeavor to secure an appro-
priation by the State Legislature for co-
operating with the national government
in the study of the forest problems of
Nearly every member of the Committee
on Forestry was in attendance, as was
Senator Telfair Stockton and Representa-
tive H. H. Buckman and also a dozen of
leading citizens and several visitors, who
were deeply interested in the subject of
President Garner, of the Jacksonville
Board of Trade, presided at the meeting,
which was called to order after Chairman
Irving H. Welch, of the Committee on
Forestry, had made Mr. Pinchot acquaint-
ed with each of the gentlemen present.
In introducing the chief of the Bureau
of Forestry, President Garner declared
that Mr. Pinchot was doing a magnificent
work for the preservation of the forests
of the United States. He was a man who
had devoted his life to the forestry prob-
lem, and had secured a national reputa-
tion for his work along these lines.
President Garner then stated that Flor-
ida had more problems, greater problems
and harder problems to solve in regard to
her forests than any other State in the
He called attention to the fact that
with a total valuation of $85,000,000 for
the exports from Florida for the year 1004,
the value of the forest products was $40,-
After telling of the failure to secure tile
enactment of any legislation for forest
preservation by the last Legislature, Presi-
dent Garner dwelt upon the importance of
steps being take to preserve the forests, ,
and then introduced Mr. Pinchot to the
Mr. Pinchot's Views.
Tihe chief of the Bureau of Forestry ex- 1
pressed his pleasure at being with so
many representative citizens and having
an opportunity to address them upon so
important subject. He agreed with Presi-
dent Garner that no State was as much
dependent upon its forests as is Florida.
Mr. 1'inehot pointed out that Florida
had a great advantage over many States,
in that its great timber producing trees
were the long-leaf pine, and that it has a
low tax rate on unimproved lands, and
he expressed the opinion that there is no
place where steps can be taken more ad-
vantageously for forest protection than in
ie then gave a brief review of what has
been done by the Bureau of Forestry in
other States in making a study of the for-
estry problems, so as to secure definite in-
formation in regard to the class of timber
best suited; the growth of the timber,
what restrictions should be agreed to as
to cutting trees of certain sizes, etc.
That an appropriation of $4,000 or
i.( 000 made by the State would be suffi-
cient for conducting such investigation
and study of the forestry problems of
Florida, was suggested by Mr. Pinchot,
as he said that the Forestry Bureau would
appropriate a similar amount and at
once arrange for the investigation to be-
The work will all be done by the Bu-
reau of Forestry and vouchers for all ex-
penditures will be returned to the State
authorities, so that the authorities and
the people of the State may know for
exactly what purpose the moneys are ex-
The work of the forestry experts would
consist of ascertaining just how many
trees should be grown on an acre; the
-rowth of trees per annum; the advant-
aues of not cutting trees below a certain
-,ize and allowing those of the specified
size and under to grow until they have
reached a size that will make them the
,nost valuable for timber; the replanting
of trees on lands that have been cut clean;
the acquiring of lands for forest preserves;
the best methods to pursue to get the best
results in taking rosin from the trees for
naval stores, and numerous other matters
in connection with the forest industries.
He also pointed out that President
Roosevelt was right in declaring that un-
til the owners of the forest lands and
those directly interested in the timber
business take up this matter of forest
preservation, the question is one that can-
not be solved.
A number of the gentlemen present
asked Mr. Pinchot numerous questions
and lie readily answered each question.
Senator Stockton and Representative
Buckman promised their support of any
measure that might be agreed upon by
the members of the committee and the
luisiness men present.
Other Visitors Speak.
W. S. Harvey. of Pennsylvania, presi-
dent of the Empire Land Company and a
nmeniber of the Executive Committee of
the National Board of Forestry, a gentle-
man who owns considerable land in Flor-
ida and who is vitally interested in for-
est preservation, was introduced by Chair-
man Welch and addressed the meeting.
Mr. Harvey gave a very interesting de-
scription of what the State of Pennsyl-
vania is doing in the way of establishing
forest preserves and the benefits already
Mr. Pinchot recommended that a com-
mittee be appointed to secure the co-op-
eration of the State Legislature and the

rhot of what is necessary to be secured
in the way of information before the en-
actment of any law on the subject, Mr.

THE REPORT OF THE BEEF INDUS-
To those who expected the report of the
Commissioner of Corporations to furnish a
vigorous indictment of the leading con-
cerns in the beef industry, the report of
Commissioner Garfield, transmitted to
Congress at the close of last week, will
certainly be a disappointment. It appears
that out of a total indicated slaughter of
12,500,000 head of cattle in the year 1903,
six packing companies killed 5,521,097
head, or about 45 per cent of the total.
The concerns referred to were Armour &
Co., Swift & Co., Morris & Co., the Na-
tional Packing Company, the Schwarz-
schild & Sulberger Company and the Cu-
dahy Packing Company, frequently desig-
nated in the trade as the "Big Six."
For three of the companies mentioned,
the Armour, Swift and Bchwarzachild &
Sulzberger companies, the true average
net profit for the twelve months ending
June 30, 1903, was 99 cents per head, not
including incidental profits. Instead of
the year 1902 being one of exorbitant
profits, as has been commonly supposed, it
was less profitable than usual, and during
the months when prices of beef were the
highest, some, at least, of the leading
packers were actually losing money on
every head of cattle slaughtered, so that
the changes in the margin between the
prices of cattle and the prices of beef fur-
nished in themselves no indication what-
ever of the changes in the profits of the
beef business. Furthermore, the margin
between the price of cattle and the price
of beef in 1903, instead of being unusually
high, was for each half of that year lower
than for any corresponding half year since
1808, and the increase in the margin for
the second half over the first half of the
year was no greater than the similar
change in other years.
According to the findings of the report,
the great prosperity of the country from
1800 to 1902 apparently led to a consid-
erable increase in the per capital consump-
tion of beef. The practical failure of the
corn cropof 1901 induced many cattle feed-
ers to send their stock to market in poor
condition, thus reducing the average
weight per head and the average percent-
age of beef to live weight. As a result,
while the total number of cattle slaught-
ered at five leading western packing cen-
ters during the first half of 1902 decreased
only about 1 per cent as compared with
the first half of 1901, the total live weight
of the cattle slaughtered is computed to
have decreased 4.3 per cent, while the es-
timated dressed weight decreased consid-
erably more. In 1903 the price of cattle
fell very sharply because of a large in-
crease in the supply. The number of cat-
tle killed in five leading western markets
during the first half of 1903 was more
than 15 per cent greater than during the
first half of 1902, and on account of the
increased size of cattle the quantity of
beef produced increased 22 per cent. In
the second half of 1903 the quantity of
beef derived from cattle killed at the same
markets was about 10 per cent greater
than in the corresponding period of 1902.
and under these conditions the price of
beef, instead of remaining at the high
level of 1908, fell during 1903 by a larger
absolute amount and by about the same
percentage as the price of cattle.
As the result of his examination the
commissioner arrives at the conclusion
that the six leading packing companies
discussed are apparently not overcapital-
ized, and that the percentage of profit on
the gross volumes of business, including
hog and sheep products and other com-
modities, is comparatively small. In the
case of one of the large companies the
profits have in no case exceeded over 2
per cent of the total sales for a period of
three years. In the case of another large
company the net profit ranged from 1.8
per cent to 2.3 per cent, so that 2 per
cent would seem to be a fair average.
The profit of private car lines in the pack-
ing industry on mileage is a liberal one,
approximate computations indicating a
net return of from 14 to 17 per cent, but
this profit adds little to the coat of dressed
beef to the consumer, the net profit from
the mileage of private cars being com-
puted at not more than 4 cents per-100
pounds of beef, or say, 25 cents per head
of cattle. Further profits arising from
the elaboration of by-products beyond the
first marketable stage, taken in connec-
tion with those just mentioned, would
add not more than 50 cents per head to
the average 99 cents set forth above.
Of course the fact that the six large
concerns already mentioned slaughtered in
1903 only about 45 per cent of the total
amount of cattle killed in that year, indi-
cates very clearly the existence of active
competition by other companies, in some
places at least. The six principal concerns
slaughter nearly 98 per cent of all the cat-
tle killed in the eight leading western
packing centers, namely, Chicago, Kansas
City, South Omaha, East St. Louis, South
St. Joseph, Fort Worth, Sioux City and
South St. Paul. In the same way they
control a very large percentage of the
trade in beef in many large cities, partic-
ularly in the east. In smaller cities and
towns in most sections of the country, on
the other hand, and even in large cities in
some sections, their operations are rela-
tively less important. In New York the
companies mentioned furnish about 75 per
cent; in Boston, more than 85 per cent;
in Philadelphia, about 60 per cent; in Prov-
idence, more than 95 per cent; in Bal-
timore, about 50 per cent, and in a num-
ber of other important cities their pro-
portion ranges from 50 to 90 per cent of
the total beef supplied. Such cities as
Buffalo, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Indian-
apolis, however, obtain only from a tenth
to a third of their supply from the big
six companies, and in the Southern States
they generally supply less than half the
total beef consumed in the larger cities,
and in the smaller cities and towns of that
section the proportion is generally less
than one-fourth. Except for the beef sup-
plied by the big companies, however, near-
ly all is slaughtered by local concerns.
ROSIN OIL AND PINOLIN.
Rosin oil and pinolin are now largely
used in varnish making, more especially
in the production of printing (bookwork)
ink and cheap lacquers. Both kinds of oil
are recovered by distilling pale French or
American rosin, the pinolin passing over
first and the rosin oil afterwards. The
stills are of iron or copper, which are
charged about half-full with rosin and
then heated gradually. In addition to the
oils mentioned, the products include crude
acetic and combustible gas, the latter be-
in gutilized for heating the stills. The
first runnings of distillate, crude acetic
acid and pinolin are collected together un-
til the density marks 0.890 to 0.892,
whereupon the contents of the receiver
are transferred to a vat, where they are
left for twenty-four hours. The fire un-
der the still is then strengthened, and a
second distillate is collected until the
density reaches 0.930, this being crude
rosin oil. The final runnings consist of a
heavy oil termed "cod" oil, and as the
flow ceases so the fire is damped down,
the residue of pitch being cleared out of
the still whilst hot through a manhole in
the bottom. The pitch is made up into
cobbler's wax or used for lining casks,
and the heavy oil finds employment as
cart grease, whilst the two lighter dis-
tillates are treated as follows: At the
end of twenty-four hours the first run-
nings will have separated into two layers,
the acid underneath. The crude pinolin
is syphoned off and stirred for twelve
hours along with 20 per cent of potash or
calcined soda, in order to neutralize any
acid that may have been drawn off with
the light oil. After settling for another
twenty-four hours the pinolin is separated
from the water and re-distilled in a cop-
per still. The first (yellow) runnings are
distilled over again in a subsequent hatch,
the remainder (density 0.826) being re-
fined pinolin and colorless. The residue
left in the still is united to the cart
grease oil. The crude acetic acid is con-
verted, by means of milk of lime, into
calcium acetate, which is heated to drive
off any tar present and then dried in an
oven, heing afterwards distilled with a
mineral acid for the recovery of acetic
acid. The medium rosin oil is used for
making printing ink and varnishes, which
dry quickly, but are brittle if the propor-
tion of oil is too high.-Farben Zeitung.

6 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
CLYATT WILL GET NEW TRIAL.
In the peonage case of Samuel M. Cly-
att vs. the United States, the Supreme
Court of the United States reversed the
decision of the Circuit Court of Appeals
for the Fifth Circuit in favor of Clyatt,
who was charged with "returning" to in-
voluntary servitude two negroes named
Gordon and Ridley. The opinion was
handed down by Justice Brewer, and while
it upheld the constitutionality of the law
for the punishment of peonage, it held
that as the record failed to show that the
negroes had ever before been in custody.
the charge of "returning" them could not
Clyatt, who resided in Georgia, was
charged with taking the men in custody
while they were employed in Florida. The
proceedings, therefore, originated in the
latter State. Sections 1990 and 5526 of
the Revised Statutes were involved. The
court sustained their constitutionality,
"We entertain no doubt of the validity
of this legislation or of its applicability
to the ease of any person holding another
in a state of peonage, and this whether
there be municipal ordinance or State law
sanctioning such holding. It operates di-
rectly on every citizen of the republic,
wherever his residence may be."
Calling attention to the charge in the
indictment, the Justice said:
"It was essential to show that Gordon
and Ridley had been in a condition of
peonage, to which by the act of the de-
fendant they were returned. We are not
at liberty to transform this indictment
into one charging that the defendant held
them in a state of peonage, or that he ar-
rested them with a view of placing them
in such a state. The testimony discloses
that the defendant, with another party,
went to Florida and caused the arrest of
Gordon and Ridley on warrants issued by
a magistrate of Georgia for larceny, but
there can be little doubt that these crim-
inal proceedings were only an excuse for
securing the custody of Gordon and Rid-
ley, and taking them back to Georgia to
work out a debt. While this is true, there
is not a scintilla of testimony to show
that Gordon and Ridley were ever there-
tofore in a condition of peonage. We are
constrained, therefore, to order a reversal
of the judgment and remand the case for
a new trial."
He said that the trial court should on
this account have taken the case from the
Justice Harlan dissented, saying that in
his opinion there was evidence tending to
make a case within the statute.
"The accused made no objection to the
submission of the case to the jury," he
said, "and it is going very far to hold in
a case like this, disclosing barbarities of
the worst kind against these negroes, that
the trial court erred in sending the case to
The case was tried originally by Judge
Swayne, and under the order of the Su-
preme Court will be remanded to his court
for another trial.
LUMBER PRICES STAND.

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
YELLOW PINE IN THE SOUTHWEST
The Burean of Forestry Has Been Study
ing This Important Tree in Colo-
rado, Arizona and New
Commercially the most important tre
of Arizona, New Mexico and Southwest
ern Colorado is the western yellow pine
It is known locally as Black Jack, at,
in the lumber trade is frequently calls
white pine. The tree furnishes material
for all kinds of local construction; th
towns of Durango, Albuquerque ani
Flagstaff are monuments to its exceeding
usefulness and value. The quantity u
western yellow pine lumber shipped t
other parts of the county at present i
small, but it is rapidly increasing
Owing to the distance from the eastern
markets, shipments are largely in th
form of highly polished material, such a
doors and moulding. These enter inti
successful competition in the Chicagi
market with similar products made o
white pine, which the better grades o
western yellow pine much resemble.
In the Southwest this species is found<
scattered over the slopes of the Rock.
Mountains at altitudes between 6,000 an
9,000 feet. There are three regions, how
ever, where it extends over large areas ii
practically pure stands.
The first of these is in extreme South
western Colorado and Northwestern Nev
Mexico Here a belt of western yellow
pine forest, twenty-five miles wide, runs
northwest and southeast for 100 miles
There are six important mills operating
in this territory, supported mainly by
Denver trade and capital. A great part ol
the product of these mills is consumed in
Colorado. The Denver and Rio Grand
Railroad affords the principal means ol
transportation, and is one of the largest
users of the timber for ties, bridges and
general construction work.
The second region is in West Centra
New Mexico, in the Zuni Mountains
This timber area is smaller than the for
mer-only fifty miles in length by eigh-
teen miles wide. The stand of pine is
more uniform than that of the Colorado
forest, however, and over a large part of
the area it is of better development. The
Colorado timber is estimated to yield
from 3,000 to 4,000 board feet per acre;
the Zuni timber will average from 4,00O
to 6,000 board feet per acre. Stands of
from 10,000 to 25,000 feet per acre occur
quite frequently in the Zuni Mountains,
but are rare in Colorado. Lumbering has
just commenced in the Zuni Mountains,
and only one mill of consequence is work-
ing at present. The logs are hauled by rail
over 100 miles to the mill The output
will be largely finished material, which
will be consumed locally, or shipped to
nearby States and into Mexico.
The third and largest region occupies a
strip from twenty to fifty miles wide and
over 300 miles long, extending from Cen-
tral Arizona southeast into New Mexico.
The greater part of this tract is included
within Federal forest reserves. The tim-
ber is practically continuous over the
whole section, and is pure yellow pine, if
canyons, mountain tops and some dry
slopes, where spruce, fir and juniper oc-
cur, are excepted. This is the largest
area of pure pine forest in the Southwest.
Owing to the varied topography and to
local conditions, the stand of timber is
not uniform, but at its best it approaches
or equals that of the Zuni Mountains.
There are two large mills in Arizona
cutting the pine from private lands
within the boundaries of the forest re-
serve. Like the mill operating in the Zuni
Mountains, they are band mills having
dry kilns and planers, and are equipped
to turn out a product in no way inferior
to that of eastern mills. The better
grades of lumber are manufactured into
doors, siding and moulding, and the lower
grades into boxes for vegetables and fruit,
or sold locally for building material.
Fire, overgrazing and drouth are the
principal evils with which the pine for-
ests of the Southwest have to contend.
Fires have been universal, though of late
they usually have been confined to re-
stricted areas. One fire rarely does se-
rious damage to mature timber, but many
of the old trees now standing are more
or less injured by repeated burnings, and
where conditions have been favorable, as
'. in dense stands uith much undergrowth
and litter, mature timber has occasionally
- been killed outright. The greatest fire
loss has been through the destruction of
young pines from a few inches in height
to trees under sinx inches in diameter.
Overgrazing is a serious hindrance to
tree reproduction. It is an evil of com-
paratively recent development, and its ef-
e, fects are most frequently seen in the for-
Sest of the lower elevations, where there
Sis less moisture than is found further up
in the mountains. Large bands of sheep
e passing and repassing over restricted areas
d destroy young pine seedlings in great
number by trampling them, and, during
f years of drouth, when the growth of for-
o age is scant, the sheep are forced by hun-
ger to eat many plants they would other-
wise neglect. Under these circumstances
' young pines are stripped of their buds
and foliage, and are either killed or badly
stunted in growth.
s Drouth is perhaps the principle factor
in determining the distribution of this
f pine on the lower elevations. Ordinarily
f yellow pine produces seed plentifully ev-
ery second or third year, but in this see-
d tion drouth often interferes with the de-
velopment of the seed or prevents their
d germination. If a good seed year meets
a moist season excellent reproduction re-
Ssults, but if drouth continues for several
years, seeds are not produced or very
many of the seedlings die. Yellow pine is,
however, a hardy tree, and if the seedlings
obtain a year's growth a good number
may live through succeeding drouths.
The study which has brought out these
. facts reveals conditions and possibilities
Sof great importance to Colorado, Arizona
fand New Mexico. The forests of this re-
gion are a valuable source of lumber for
home use and for the maintenance of im-
Sportant industries. The timber is good,
t the forests are easily logged and indus-
tries other than farming and grazing are
needed for a rounded development of the
region. Without these forests the rail-
roads also would be forced to haul their
construction supplies long distances. Most
of the land in the forested area is too
high to be irrigated, but if the tree growth
is fostered the land which it occupies may
become an important factor in the con-
servation of water for the development of
agriculture in adjacent regions. The rain-
fall in this section is largely the product
of brief, heavy thunderstorms, or it comes
as snow during the winter. Gentle, con-
tinuous rains are rare. This condition em-
phasizes the need for a forest cover on all
the slopes, for when the hills are bared
by injudicious lumbering, fire or overgraz-
ing the storm waters rush rapidly to the
bottom, bearing great quantities of soil
and rock, or the snow melts with undesir-
able rapidity under the direct rays of the
For successful reproduction of pine on
lumbered areas, fire and overgrazing, the
two controllable agencies most destructive
at the seedling stage, must be controlled.
On the moist slopes and high elevations
seed bearing and reproduction are rela-
tively abundant, forage plants are plenti-
ful and water holes and streams are nu-
merous, hence there is little danger to
seedlings from trampling or browsing; as
is evidenced by the very excellent repro-
duction often found in places which have
been sheep grazed for years. Here fires 4
are the greatest danger, as there is more
grass and litter to feed them than at
lower levels and on dry slopes. A very
careful fire patrol of such territory, keep-
ing close watch on sheep herders and
campers during the periods when the for-
est is free from snow, will insure good re-
production of pine over these moist areas.
On the lower and dryer slopes over-
grazing is the most destructive agent
working against reproduction. Good
seed years are less frequent, the quantiti-
ty of seed is smaller and the conditions
for germitation are often very poor, so
that reproduction is meager as compared
to other areas. Owing to the scant growth
of grass and the light, isolated litter, due
to the open condition of the forest here,
fires are infrequent and very restricted in
extent, and the grazing further reduces 4
the ability pf fire to spread by reducing
the amount of inflammable material. 4
Scant forage and isolated watering places *
cause a closer working of localities ad-
jacent to such watering places. Tramp- q
ling and browsing of seedlings are the de- 4

areas. By regulating the number of sheep
to be pastured on any given area, limit-
ing the length of the grazing season, keep-
ing the bands of sheep moving and not al-
lowing them to be held on small tracts

THE SOUTH'S ADVANTAGE.
The general trend of business develop-
:nent to-day is more pronouncely in favor
:,i the South than ever before. In every
direction there are signs of advancement.
Starting with the mineral regions of Vir-
i;nia and West Virginia, where there is
remarkablee activity in coal and iron in-
lerets, on down through Kentucky and
Tennessee to Alabama, where coal and
!ron activity is greater than ever before,
witl plans under way for developments
which will make the South a leader in
metallurgical progress, to New Orleans
and (ealveston, where the export grain
trade of the country is now centering,
there is in every direction improvement
and advancement. Cotton mill interests
:ire getting in better shape; water power
developments are under way at many
points, especially in the Carolinas, includ-
ing the immense undertaking at Yadkin
Falls, N. C., by Pittsburg capitalists; here
an'd there immigration is sufficiently
naked as to be commanding much atten-
tion. Five or six years ago, when the
treat hoom of that period swept over the
country, the South had scarcely com-
ienacel to emerge from the depressing ef-
'cct of years of low-price cotton and the
agricultural poverty which that condition
had brought about. Its iron interests
were not in a position to get the benefit,
except to a limited extent, of the pros-
oerity in iron and steel, and so the great
wave of activity had almost passed away
before higher-price cotton and improve-
ments and consolidation in iron and coal
and railroad developments had put the
South in a position to reap the same rich
harvest that other sections gathered. But
now the conditions are different. The big
profits on two or three years' cotton crops
sold at high prices brought such financial
strength to the farmers as to enable them
to hold this crop back from the market
to the despair of the bears, and the iron
interests, developed by new and modern
improvements and by the building of new
furnaces and steel works, are in shape to
enjoy the present prosperity in that trade
and to justify further developments on a
very large scale. Thus the South enters
this period of industrial activity in a far
better shape than before, and in the next
five years we shall see more real wealth
created there and a greater volume of
business than in the last ten years. We
shall now do in five years much more than
we have done in the past ten. That is the
assured progress ahead of the South.

SHIPMKETS OF LUMBER.
Lumber shipments from the port of
Jacksonville Wednesday amounted to 1,-
708,00 feet, according to the manifests of
three vessels clearing at the customhouse.
The steamship Algonquin carried out
675,000 feet for New York, the schooner '
Anna R. Bishop carried out 313 feet for
Elizabethport, N. J., and the barge Wil-
Ham D. Becker was cleared for New
York with 18,000 railroad cross ties, equiv-
alent in board measure to 720,000 feet of
The total amount of lumber and cross t
ties shipped from Jacksonville during the
first fifteen days of the month of March
amounted to 11,596,078 feet, of which 10,- b
327,940 feet were shipped to coastwise l
ports and 1,268,138 feet were shipped to

and Philadelphia continues good, and
there are at the present time a dozen or t
more sailing vessels in port taking on car-
If the remaining fifteen days in the t
month of March continue as good as the
first fifteen days, the record for lumber
shipments will be broken. The present t
prospect is that equally as many vessels b
will clear during the remainder of the
month, and that shipments will be equal- b
ly as heavy. a1
The Clyde Steamship Company alone
has ten vesessls scheduled to sail for New a
York and Boston during the next fifteen d

nearly a half million feet of lumber each. R
THE OPERATOR IS HIS OWN FACTOR AND SHOULD ALSO
BECOME HIS OWN TIOxurORi
The contract that has existed for two
years between the naval stores factors
and the association of exporters, by which
the exporters take the receipts of the fac-
tors, will expire by limitation next month.
It is to be hoped that the contract will
not be renewed. 'As a matter of fact, a
conference between factors and exporters
was held in Savannah only this week,
looking to a renewal, and at this writing
no renewal has been made for good and
sufficient reasons on the part of the fac-
tors; and the indications now point to
no renewal and the organization of an
export company, the members of which
company shall be the operators themselves.
This is as it should be, and The Record
will welcome the day when the operator
will take this one step, which is not only
so vital to his interests, but the one and
only step now necessary to place him in
absolute control of his product frop the
raw gum until it supplies the consump-
tive demands of the world as a finished
This is a day of co-operation. It has
been successful in every industry to
which it has been properly applied. It
has been peculiarly successful in the
naval stores industry. The great devel-
opment of that industry has been accom-
plished around the operator as a nucleus.
He planted his still in a pine forest and
converted the crude gum of his trees into
turpentine and rosin. The factor financed
his operations and handled his product.
The exporter bought from the factor, as
the consumer's agent, and distributed to
the consuming world. The factor was in-
dspensible to the operator; the exporter
was needful to the factor. But the op-
erator took one step further. He began
to finance his own product by becoming
a factor as well as a producer, and the
very minute the interests of the producers
and factors thus became identical, as they
ire to-day, the success of the move was
apparent. It is a fact that practically
every factorage house in the pine belt to-
lay is owned and controlled by producers. (
The distrust that existed prior to that
ime between operator and factor disap-
eared. An era of prosperity unknown
before in the industry followed. But one a
ink to make the chain complete has been
missing. The operator has manufactured I
is stuff and financed it through his fac-
orage house, but he has been in a degree
t the mercy of the distributors, whose in-
erests have not always been in sympathy E
rith his interests. And now the oppor- O
unity is here to take the final step and o
become master of the situation in every i
ranch of the trade from tree to con- V
umner. The operators and factors-one o
nd the same-should also be their own m
distributors. And they will be. The o
record predicts that they will see the ad- n
vantage of this course and organize at
this opportune time an export company
that will make the trade chain complete.
Will an export company, owned and
controlled by the operators and factors
The same question was probably asked
when the operator first began to think of
becoming his own factor and the history
of the industry for the past few years has
given the answer. It will succeed from
more than one standpoint. If a few men
of foreign interests, in a close corporation,
or an association of two or three lose
corporations can succeed, why should not
a corporation composed of several hundred
men who are vitally interested in every
branch of the trade proportionately sue-
ceed? Another standpoint: The world
needs and must have turpentine and rosin.
The market is made purely on the law of
supply and demand. The men who make
the supply and finance the operations so
they can make it, will succeed better in
carrying that supply themselves direct to
the demands. They have the brains, they
have the connections, they have the
money-why shouldn't they?
As in all matters where co-operation is
the key note, there must be complete
unity. In the movement now progressing
to organize an export company practically
every factorage house in the pine belt is
interested. Every operator must now be-
come interested, and look at the situation,
not only for the present, but for the fu-
ture. The present exporters will natur-
ally fight the movement. They will prob-
ably spend a great deal of the money they
have made out of the operators to con-
vince them that it is not to their interest.
For the purpose of fighting only, they may
make some offers to the men in the
woods that may appear alluring, on their
surface; but to yield, when once under- I
taken, would mean inevitable disaster in
the future. Temptations that mean ruin
ire sometimes offered on silver platters.
No, there will be no yielding. In this year

FLORIDA AS A STOCK RAISING STAT
Local Real Etate Firm Emopsie the
In my travels through Florida I nd
that some of the Northwestern cattlemen
are making investigations a to the ad-
vantages of Florida a cattle rauig
proposition as compared with other
States, especially those of the Northwes.
It is claimed by some of the battle peo-
ple of Florida, and who have made a suc-
cess of the business, that cattle will net
only subsist, but are well maintain all
the year round on Florida grasses. Prom
very careful investigation with a lar
number of stock people I am satied that
the pasture will furnish good maritenans
for nine months in the year, and to Ai-
ish and fatten it will probably be nees-
sary in some cases to feed either velvet
beans, cassava, cowpeas, pastalum, Jap-
anese cane, etc. Velvet beans and casava
will maintain and fatten at least three
head of stock to the acre, and I am told an
good authority that five head per acre
have been fattened.
Cassava is an exceedingly good adjauet
to the velvet bean. It produces a suea-
lent root, and while it is a little more ex-
pensive to feed, in lieu of the fet that
it must be gaRpered (velvet beams can be
fed dry in the pasture where they grow),
it goes a long way towards balaning the
velvet bean feed, which is a strong pro-
tein. In addition to this, they have a feed
very high in protein known as cowpeas,
of which they make three crops per yar
on ordinary pine land. Can cut two of
them and feed the other out of had.
These will produce from two to three tos
of dry forage to the ace. I And another
valuable feed that can be fed fro June
until frost is the Japamne an. Thi
feed is exceedingly strong in arbo-hy-
drates and a fine fattening food. Oats
can be produced as a fair pastaag for a
short time in the year, and pragras is
excellent for nine months in the year.
In addition to the cultivated feeds ma-
tioned above for finishing and fattaig,
Florida produces for masintea e the
many varied wild grasses from nSBi to
twelve months in the year. Velvet beans
will grow abundantly on any of the high
lands of Florida without fertilizer. assa-
va and the other cultivated feeds require
a little fertilizer, say 00 pounds to the
acre, at a cost of (28 per ton.
From my talk with several of the sua-
cessful stock people and observations gn-
erally, I verily believe that in a very few
years Florida will be the greatest cattle
raising State in the Union. Hundreds of
thousands of acres of most excellent stoek
land can be bought to-day for $1 to P$
per acre; and lands adjoining, I am re-
liably Informed, ar netting the podoa s
to-day from $50 to (200 and over per acre
in beans, tomatoes, celery and other
tables, as was fully set forth in my art-
:le in the January number.
It was clearly shown by speakers at the
great cattle convention last year that
States like Florida have ininnite advantage
over the West in forage plant, in feed-
ng in winter, in shelter, in shorter peod
f fattening, in lower percentage of
by death from all causes. The catte of
Florida do not die of drouth in summer or
bizzard in winter, as on the great ranges
if the far West. The testimony of the
attlemen's convention last year wau also
convincing that improvement in size and
qualityy by breeding upon the native stock
s entirely practicable.
The above facts which I have set forth
cry briefly have aroused such widespread
interest among the great ranch owners
md cattle breeders of the United States
hat the nt n national convention of the
Lmerican Cattle Breeders' Association will
e held at Jacksonville in March. All the
Teat cattle breeders hold membership i
his association, and so impressed have
aany of them become with the advant-
ges of Florida for large cattle ranches
hat many of them are taking options on
large tracts of land in that State for eat-
Ie raising. One large real estate nrm at

IMMIGRATION BUREAU DISCUSSED.
Real estate agents and other progressive
citizens of Florida are beginning an active
campaign in favor of the establishment of
an immigration bureau for Florida, and
hope to have a bill pass at the coming ses-
sion of the Legislature which will make an
adequate appropriation for this work.
Those who have been giving the most
thought to the proposed plan have decided
to make an effort to have a bill passed and
it is said that a senator has promised to
introduce this measure and to work for
its passage. The plan as suggested is to
establish an office in Jacksonville, where
all those coming to the State arrive, and
where there will be competent men in
charge to give information and to accom-
pany large parties of bomeseekers who are
brought here by the cheap rates In the
fall of the year to any part of the State
they prefer to visit. The object of the
plan is to have some practical farmer, who
knows how to reach this class of people
and how to interest and direct them to
take charge of the field work, and to see
that no prospector comes to the State who
is not looked after carefully and that ev-
ery plan is exhausted to locate him where
he can make a success.
Of course, the plan contemplates a great
deal for advertising the resources of the
State and the sending of an agent to those
section from where the largest crowds are
expected to come. At a recent meeting of
a few of those interested in this plan it
was urged that the time to prepare for
securing the passage of this bill is now. A
feature of the plan which commends itself
to the Legislature is that all sections of
the State are to be included, and no effort
made to build up any one part of the State.
Those who have been entrusted with draft-
ing a bill will first confer with Governor
Broward in reference to the plan and en-
deavor to secure suggestions from him be-
fore the bill is drafted.
There is beginning to be some interest
aroused in the matter in other parts of the
State, as the following from the Gaines-
ville Sun of last Sunday will show:
On the eve of the convening of the Leg-
islature of Florida, the Sun would like to
see a discussion of the practicability and
advisability of the establishment of a bu-
reau of immigration in this State. From
what was said in reference to this public
question a few weeks since at a meeting
of real estate agents in Jacksonville, it is
evident that there will be up for considera-
tion at the next session a bill seeking to
establish such a department of govern-
Reasons are assigned why a bureau of
immigration ought to be established in
Florida. They are all good claims, intel-
ligently advanced in the interest of what
Florida has been needing for no little time.
The only difficulty discernible at this time,
and the only argument which has been
made against a competent appropriation for
this work, is that the scheme will get into
politics and work more harm than good
by creating a spirit of rivalry and Jealousy
between the sections. This, however, con
be obviated if the legislators would debar
politics or prevent injury through Florida's
variety of political agitation and strife.
What is needed is some plan whereby
people may not only be induced to come to
Florida, but be guided and directed after
their arrival. Too many people come here
from the north who are misguided and
who are not sufficiently informed to intelli-
gently take advantage of the many re-
sources that this State has to offer to the
homeseeker. The failure of the State to
look after this class cost Florida hundreds
of thousands of dollars this winter. Never
has there been such a tide of travel south-
ward as that which has come here this fall
and winter. Thousands have come to Flor-
ida, and they have constituted a class
anxious to locate if they could do so to
This winter it has been a constant story
of disappointment to Intended investors and
settlers. They have come, found nothing
and returned, all because the State has
made no provisions to acquaint them with
her resources. Every section of this State
during the fall and winter months, when
the railroads are bringing people by the
thousands at half rates, needs a competent
man to take charge of these people, and
some place where intending settlers may
go for information and proper direction.
Nothing of the visionary sort, such as is
seen in some of our exaggerated advertis-
ing matter, scattered broadcast, is wanted,
but a good, competent, truthful and care-
ful system of propagating needed informa-
tion is one of the greatest essentials to
Florida's future development.
The time is coming when this State will
need settlers for her farms which must ul-
timately take the place of some of the in-
dustries at present furnishing the greatest
wealth to the State, but which will pass
away in time. The time is ripe for action
along these lines, and the press of Flor-
lad ought to agitate the matter in the in-
terest of bringing about an intelligent un-
derstanding and the best practical plan.-
