Practical Results of the Cup and Gutter System of Turpentining
(By Charles Herty, Ph.D.)
The following has just been issued by
the Bureau of Forestry, United States De-
partment of Agriculture:
The cup and gutter system of collecting
crude turpentine, proposed as a substitute
for the box system commonly in use, was
described at length in a former publica-
tion. The saving that it effected was also
shown in the experimental tests, the re-
sults of which were given at the same
Since the publication of the bulletin, ex-
perimental and comparative tests have
been carried on steadily, but only the re-
sults of a year's commercial test of the
new system on the turpentine farm of
Messrs. Powell, Bullard & Co., at Ocilla,
Ga., have been published.
This circular is issued to show the prac-
tical results of three years' working of the
new system, to call attention to several
improvements that have been made in
equipment and methods, and to point out
several faults that have developed. All
the comparative tests were made on sim-
ilar half crops as described in Bulletin 40.
Readers who are not familiar with tur-
pentining are referred to that publication,

but it may be said in general that in this
system the resin is collected in a suitable
vessel, preferably of hard burned clay,
being caught and conducted to this vessel
by inclined metal gutters inserted in shal-
low cuts in the tree.
The advantages claimed for the system
were two: First, that it protects the tree
against the destructive action of storms
and fire; second, that it increases both the
quality and the quantity of the product.
Since the publication of Bulletin 40 the
plot of timber there described as a "first-
year crop" has been worked two years
more. as a "second-year crop" and as a
"third-year op," complete records being
kept of the yield from the "boxed" and
"cupped" halves of the crop, together
with careful studies of the condition of
the trees in each.
Messrs. Powell, Bullard & Co. have cour-
teously furnished the results of the sec-
ond and third years of operation. Sum-
maries of thfse figures are given in Ta-
bles II, and III. They show that the
cupped trees yielded $1,284.04 per crop,
or over 30 per cent. more than the boxed

Condition of Trees.
At regular intervals during the three
years of operation, careful study was
made of the condition of the trees in each
half of the crop. The results of these
studies by years follow:

Of the 44 trees blown down in the.cup-
pod half of the crop during the three years
of operation, only 8 fell because they were
Wing turpentined. These 8 were small
trees on which too deep incisions had been
cut by the broadax. Of the 78 trees blown
down in .the boxed half of the crop, the
fall of 59 was due to the cutting of the
boxes. The larger number of cupped trees
blown down from causeS other than the
method of collecting the resin is due to
the fact that many had doty hearts and
were unfit for boxing, but just as well
suited to cupping as sound trees. Many
of these were snapped off above the tur-
pentine face by a storm in the spring of

By far the greater part of this loss in
both half crops was due to constantly
increasing "dry face." It is evident that
in the first year the box cutting was
largely responsible for the wide disparity
in the amount of dry face in the two half
crops, hut after the first year the chipping
was the determining factor. In fact. the
rate of increase of dry face after the first
year is grater in the cupped than in the
boxed trees, and is due, no doubt, to the
higher average number of face per tree
in the cupped half. (See Bulletin 40,
Since the cup and gutter system has
been in use, a number of improvements
in the equipment ar.d in methods have
Cups.-The quality of the cups has been
materially improved. Many of those first
used allowed the resin to seep through.
This was due to the fact that the cups
were made in molds, a method of manufac-
ture requiring a soft, wet clay. Tlis ob-
jection has been entirely overcome by the
use of machinery and a stiff and much
drier clay. The new cups allow no seep-
age and are just as desirable for collect-
ing the resin as if they had been glazed
at considerable cost.
Shipping the cups.-The complete suc-
cess attained in shipping the cups in bulk
has effected a saving to the operator, both
in decreased breakage in transit and in
the cost of the wooden crates formerly
Dipping.-At the time cups were intro-
duced it was hoped that with experience
the dippers would be able to collect as
much gum per day from cups as if usual
from boxes. This hope has been more
than realized, for in practically all eases it
has been found that the dippers sre able
to collect more gum per day from cups
than from boxes. Difficulty was frequent-
ly experienced in getting good bdx dippers
to undertake the dipping of cups, but after
the chance was once made a preference
for cup dipping was uniformly noticed.
Use of the broadax for facing.-The
most important advance made in the ap-
plication of the cup and gutter system has
been the substitution of the broadax for
the club ax in making the flat faces on the
trees. The difficulty in using the corner-
ing ax recommended in Bulletin 40. on the
hard timber near the Gulf coast in South
Florida, led to the suggestion by Mr. R. M.
Radford. of Braidentown, Fla., that the
broadax he used for making the faces. The
experiment was tried and the result was
faster and better work and a good sur-
face for beginning chipping. Later. Mr.
H. H. Ellarbee. of Ellarbee, Fla., suggest-
ed that the usual setting of the broadax
on the handle he reversed, so that in hew-
ing the beveled side would be next to the
tree. This change greatly increased the
speed of the work, as the chip could be
promntlyl split off after the full width of
the face had been obtained.
The next step was to have one man
make both incisions for the gutters in-
stead of employing a right-handed and a
left-handed ax-man for making the two.
At the outset the laborers usually insist
that one man cannot make both cuts, but
a little practice gives perfect facility in
cutting each with equal ease.
These changes have made it easily pos-
sible to double the speed of a squad, and
many laborers have become very skillful
in this use of the broadax. One laborer
during the past winter prepared in one
day, 1,700 faces. Inspection of the work
shows that it was well done in every
Directions for using the broadax.-The
ax should weigh from 8 to 9 pounds and
have a perfectly straight edge. The han-
die should be straight and not longer than
30 inches. Each laborer sets his ax on
the handle so that its edge is parallel to
the handle and the beveled side lies next
to the tree in hewing.
By almost vertical strokes of the ax a
flat surface is hewn one-half of the width
of the "face" which is to be chipped later.
When the ax first catches the wood the
chip is prized outward slightly, thus facil-
itating the easy entrance of the ax in the
same cut on the second stroke and also
keeping the surface smooth. On the third
stroke it is usually possible to partly cut
and partly break off the chip, thus avoid-
ing useless mutilation of the tree. This
is done by a twist of the ax, given just as
it falls into the previous cut, the eye of
the ax being thrown against the tree and
the edge outward. The laborer then steps
either forward or backward and hews the
second side of the angular face, taking
care to leave no rounded surface in the
center where the two sides join.
On these flat surfaces the incisions for
the gutters are then made, one a right-
handed and the other a left-handed cut.
In making these cuts the ax is held so that
the outer point of the edge is lower than
the inner point, while the eye of the ax is
lower than the edge. By a single blow a
cut is made the full width of one side of
the face, this cut being about one-quarter
of an inch deep at the outer edge of the
face and a little deeper at the center. The
cuts should he at least one inch apart at
the center of the face, to prevent chok-
ing between the two gutters by chips and
"scrape," and for convenience in cleaning
the gutters when the cups are dipped.
Zinc nails.-The cup and gutter system
has been most favorably received by the
owners of mills where the timber is sawed
after it has been turpentined. The only
objection they make is to the use of iron
nails for hanging the cups. To meet this
objection, zinc nails are now manufactured
for use with the cups. Experiments have
shown that if such a nail is left in the
tree no damage whatever is done to a
saw that strikes it, because the metal is
Errors Made in Using the Cup and Gutter
Gutters.-In making the incisions for
the gutters, the eye of the broadax is
frequently turned down too much. The
outer half of a gutter inserted in such an
incision lies almost at a right angle to
the trunk of the tree, and hence forms a
shelf rather than a trough. From such a
gutter the resin frequently runs off along
the outer edge. Furthermore, such a gut-
ter is easily forced out when the dipper is
removing the "scrape" from it, the pres-
sure of the dip knife being almost in line
with the direction of the cut. A gutter in-
serted carefully into a properly made in-
cision will never fall out.
Nails.-Two mistakes are frequently
made in driving the nail on which the
cup hangs. First, the nail is driven hori-
zontally. In the latter part of the sea-
son. when hardened resin collects under
the head of the nail, a cup hung on it
will easily drop off. The head of the nail
should have a steep slant upward. A
cup hung on a nail so driven fits snugly
between the nail and the tree, is secure,

"NAVAL STORES AND TIMBER.'
Address by W. F. Coachman at the loint Convention of Florida and Georgia
Bankers Last Week
The following very able address on the
subject, "Naval Stores and Timber," was
prepared by Mr. W. F. Coachman and read
before the joint session of the Florida and
Georgia bankers in convention at Atlantic
Beach last week:
To the general tendency of modern civ-
ilization towards specialization of inter-
ests and the differentiation of labor, bank-
ing is in some respects a notable excep-
tion. The banker's business is concerned
with the trade and commerce of the whole
and every part of his community. He is
a universal specialist. The sources of
wealth, the channels of trade and the ex-
change of money command his attention
and have a direct and immediate bearing
upon his business. Under normal condi-
tions, a banker's profits are in direct pro-
portion to the volume of trade and the
production and interchange of wealth.
Whatever tends, therefore, to the material
development and prosperity of the com-
munity, merits attentive consideration at
the hands of the thoughtful and progres-
These considerations justify the inter-
est with which the bankers of Florida
now regard the naval stores and lumber
industries of this State. No other indus-
try of Florida controls so much capital
or produces so great a revenue. The lum-
ber mills are our principal, and, until re-
cent years, have been our sole, manufac-
tories. Our forest products, unlike any
other product, come from every part ol
the State, and benefit every section and
every class. They constitute the most
important item of our shipping and com-
merce. The indirect effects of the indus-
try upon trade and exchange are far-
reaching and of inestimable importance.
The most casual consideration marks this
industry as one of commanding importance
to Florida bankers, deserving their in-
terest in its history and its influence upon
present and future conditions.
'Trite and familiar as is the thought, it
cannot be too often remarked that the
exploitation of forest products is the pio-
neer industry of every country where
trees grow. The hunter and the trapper
have led the way to the agricultural and
commercial development of much of the
United States. It is no less true that
the lumber men and turpentine operator
are also the vanguard of the farmer, the
tradesman and manufacturer. As in the
Northwest, where this development has
been most apparent, the hunter has been
followed by the lumber man, who in time
made way for the farmer and the mechan-
ic. In the South the same conditions
have repeated themselves. From North
Carolina to the Gulf the progress of the
woodsman has been followed by business
activity and civilization.
Ever since the territorial days of Flor-
ida, forest products have furnished the
principal occupation of its people. Dur-
ing the years which preceded the con-
struction of our present railroad system,
the numerous rivers and streams which
extend hundreds of miles into the interior
of the State, afforded access to the great
forests along their banks. Suited to a
pioneer country, as Florida then was, the
business of felling and hewing timber was
easily conducted without expense .and by
the most primitive methods. With in-
finite patience and time, logs were floated
down the rivers by successive tides to
the saw mills near the coast. There, by
equally primitive methods, the logs were
manufactured into lumber, and shipped
by sea in vessels so small that one cargo
would scarcely equal a single day's cut
of a good-sixed modern saw mill. But
small as the industry then was, agricul-
was equally undeveloped. The sameediffi-
culties and uncertainties of transporta-
tion, acting with other causes common to
new and unsettled countries, restricted
the agricultural development of the State.
But the lumbermen, in spite of the advan-
tages of cheap lands and numerous navi-
gable streams, had to contend against con-
ditions, operating almost until the present
day, which restricted the value of their
products and reduced their profits to the
lowest possible minimum. The forests of
the Carolinas and Georgia were then un-
exhausted. The advantages of nearer
markets, more abundant labor and ample
capital enabled these competitors to un-
der-sell the lumbermen of Florida and keep
the forest products of this State down to
prices which afforded no more than a
hare living to the producers. The cost of
transportation was so great, compared
with the value of the product, that the
business languished in the face of the
competition of the more favored States to
the Northward. The great abundance of
pine timber of large dimensions, and its
accessibility to navigation, kept the busi-
ness alive in spite of the competition of
the forests of the Carolinas, and for more
than fifty years the logger and the lum-
ber manufacturer have been the greatest
wealth producers of Florida. But with
the manufacture of naval stores, diffi-
culties peculiar to the industry, added to
the increased cost of transportation, pre-
cluded the successful conduct of the busi-
ness in Florida in competition with that
of the Carolinas. The business never took
a firm hold in this State until the forests
of the more northerly states had become
exhausted. The manufacture of turpen-
tine requires skilled labor. Experience
as well as capital was required for its
successful management. Outside of the
Carolinas, where years of experience had
produced competent laborers as well as
skilled operators. men could not be had to
conduct the business. So long as skilled
operators with their trained stillers,
woodsmen and laborers found cheap piie
lands nearer to the markets, it is not sur-
prising that none of them found Florida
a profitable field.
Lumber as a, Building Factor.
Meanwhile the lumber business of Flor-
ida furnished occupation for a large part
of its people, slowly building up towns
and adding to the wealth of the State.
Silently, steadily and unnoticed, it pro-
duced the great bulk of our wealth and
formed the foundation of our trade and
commerce. Further and further from the
rivers, the logger moved his camps out
into the great virgin forests of the inter-
ior. With the building of railroads, the
pine lands hundreds of miles from the
streams became available and accessible.
With the advancement of the railroad
went log camps and saw mills, and out
of the distant forests came a steady prod-
net which contributed in a great propor-
tion than any other single factor to the
material prosperity of the State.
But forest products are soon exhausted,
and the life of the industry in any State
is comparatively brief. The rapid des-
truction of the forest of North Carolina
was succeeded by the same process in its
sister State. The Southern lumbermen
found new fields for their labor in Geor-
gia, whose magnificent pine forests yield-
ed riches to him and prosperity to the
State. Its vast untouched forests drew
the accumulated capital and energy of the
mill men and turpentine producers of the
Carolinas. The business grew and pros-
pered. Great areas were denuded of their
forests, and farms and villages sprang
up in their stead. The last quarter of
the preceding century comprised the life
of the industry. At the end of this period
Georgia operators realized that the timber
resources of that State were soon to be
exhausted. It was then that they found
for the first time that Florida also had
vast tracts of pine and cypress timber,
in spite of two generations of logging.
Earlier Industrial Booms.
During the early period of river logging
and the later stage of lumblring by rail,
Florida was not known as preeminently a
lumbering or naval stores State. Impor-
tant as was the industry, it failed to take
its trni position in the popular mind as
our greatest product. In part this was
due to the greater production of the States
to the north. But it may also be ascribed
in a large measure to the attention which

the citrus and vegetable culture received
from residents and strangers alike. The
picturesqueness and profitableness of the
orange crop for many years attracted im-
migration and brought foreign capital to
this State. The ease and extent of the
profits of the business drew to it the en-
ergies of our own people. Millions of dol-
lars went into planting and cultivation of
oranges and millions were annually ob-
tained for the crop. The business over-
shadowed all others. The industry in
time became the source of a prosperity
more obvious than real, which a single
night destroyed. Over-production had al-
ready marked the limit of the industry,
and repeated freezes left us with the re-
luctant conviction that the orange could
not become a staple crop for the entire
Coincident with the period of greatest
prosperity of the citrus culture, came the
phosphate boom. In its turn, the mining
and manufacture of this product promised
great things for Florida. Inflated values,
speculative investments, ignorance of
trade conditions and unstable prices pros-
trated the industry, and for a time
threatened its existence. Years of de-
pression in prices ruined many and left
the business flat and apathetic. Sounder
business methods and a wider technical
knowledge eventually placed the indus-
try on a firm footing, but the narrow
range of the phosphate deposits gives to
the business a local character which is
not true of the lumber and naval stores
The collapse of the orange and phos-
phate industries left the State with shat-
tered hopes and a blighted future. Much
real and not a little fictitious capital had
been lost. The prosperity which had at-
tracted capital and induced immigration
was gone. Financial depression, restric-
tion of credit and narrowing of business
activity followed. To the banker as well
as to the merchant, farmer and mechanic,
the situation looked discouraging enough.
The principal products of the State had
failed, and the future seemed to offer
nothing but the slow growth of agricul-
tural development under the disadvan-
tages of inadequate capital and immigra-
This was hardly ten years ago. To-day
Florida was never so prosperous. Its
population, its industries, its active cap-
ital are greater than ever before in its
history. The volume of business has
grown to surpass all records. Capital is
abundant and active. Credit is high.
Wherein lies the cause? What has brought
prosperity out of depression; business'
activity out of financial stagnation. I
believe that you will not hesitate for an
answer. It lies in the remarkable growth
of the lumber and naval stores interests,
with their attendant influx of men and
During the development and prosperity
of the citrus culture and the excitement
of phosphate speculation, the lumber bus-
iness had slowly but steadily increased in
volume. In our hard times, the pine and
cypress had been as the kindly fruits of
the earth. But the vast forest resources
of the State remained practically unde-
veloped, although they had been for more
than half a century the unrecognized basis
of our commerce and manufactures. Yet
their value was unappreciated. Truly it
can he said that we couM not see the for-
est for the trees. In the midst of stagna-
tion and depression, few realized that the
richest, the most easily convertible asset
tle State possesses, surrounds us on every
side, inviting development and promising
a rich and sure reward.
Experience, capital and commercial fa-
c;lities, factors as necessary as the forests
themselves, were wanting. At this junct-
ure came the timlbr men of the South and

The pine and cypress forests of Florida
offered to their inexperienced eyes an in-
viting and profitable field. It was a happy
circumstance for Florida that, after years
of slow and uneven development the ad-
vantages of its forests should have at-
tracted the attention of the Southern and
Northwestern woodsmen at the same time.
By their combined energy and capital,
their experience and sagacity, the forest
products of this State are being exploited
by the most intelligent and thorough
methods which modern conditions have
produced. As elements of population, they
have added strength and progress which
are sure to leave an enduring influence
on its people and the history of the State.
The effect of this immigration in im-
,proving business conditions was startling
in its rapidity. It first made itself mani-
fest in the purchase of immense tracts of
The State of Florida embraces about
59,000 square miles, or 37,000,000 acres of
land Of this, the greater part was origi-
nally covered with an unbroken growth of
pine' and cypress. While the exact fig-
ures are not obtainable, it is probably
true than ten years ago, when the influx
of lumbermen and turpentine operators
began, there were not less than 15,000,000
acres of forest land available for develop-
ment. The best timbered and most ac-
cessible lands were held in immense bodies
by land-grant railroad companies and for-
eign corporations. Most of these compa-
nies were inactive and unprogressive.
Many of them were almost insolvent.
Their lands had been sold for taxes year
after year, and they lacked money to re-
deem them. Prices of wild lands were at
their lowest ebb. The finest timbered
lands of the State were offered for $1.25
per acre without buyers.
Advancing Land Values.
But with the establishment of the naval
stores industry and the development of
lumbering, these conditions speedily
changed. Lands which for years had been
a dead asset, found ready purchasers at
constantly advancing prices. At first in
small tracts, and then in larger bodies,
the lumbermen and naval stores operators
Iought up the most available and accessi-
ble timber lands-in the northern part of
the State. With the growth of the busi-
ness, thle demand became more active,
and spread from the northern through the
middle counties to the extreme southern
part of the State. The entire holdings of
the land-grant railroad companies were
disposed of in a few years under the influ-
ence of this movement. Foreign land
holding companies likewise were not slow
to sell their property. In six or seven
years front the inception of this move-
nient, nearly all of the timbered lands
of these corporations changed hands.
While figures are not available, from
my own knowledge I can state from 1895
to the present time, between nine and
ten million acres of land in this State
have been sold at least once in the prog-
ress of these enterprises. If we assume
that the average price of these lands was
$1.25 per acre, which would not be far
from a fair average, it would mean that
a single transfer of this great area of
territory has brought into the State and
through its channels of business about
$12.500.1.(0 in less than ten years. But
much the greater part of these lands have
been sold not once, nor twice, but over
and over again, each time at an increased
price. During the period of which we are
now speaking, the constant and more
pressing demand for timber lands has had
its effects upon their values. Millions of
acres were sold for less than a dollar an
acre. In a few years we have seen prices
of choice timber lands advance by suc-
cessive sales, in a period of less than
five years, from $1.25 to $10.00 per acre.
consideringg tlih vast acreage of lands
which have fornmed the basis of active
trailing, andl thle numerous and repeated
sales at constantly advancing prices, the
amount of money which has been put in
cilrellntion yv tlie selling and buying of
t'mi;er lands during this period is in no
%\ay proportionate to their original cost.
Any ligures which might be given would
he nerely conjectural, but it is safe to
say that tlhe buying and selling of timler-
ed lands alone has )ut into circulation
every year a sum far greater than the
value of the orange crop of Florida in
the most prosperous seasons.
F'ronm the banker's point of view, this
activity in our lands means profit from
many sources. It is true that most of the
lands which are the subject of this trad-
ing were owned by foreign corporations
anl non-residents, but it is equally true
that the exchange of money necessary to

(Continued from page 1.)
and cannot swing away from the spout of
the lower gutter, though it may be easily
removed by the dipper. Second, the nail
is.often driven into the tree above the
lower end of the lower gutter. A cup
hung on such a nail is never vertical, and
its capacity is therefore diminished. Fur-
ther, when a cup so hung fills with water
or resin, the increased weight tends to
bring it to a vertical position, thereby
pressing on the lower gutter and causing
the latter to be prized out of the incision.
The nail should always be driven into the
tree at a point slightly lower than the
lower end of the lower gutter.
Cups.-Experience has demonstrated
that the cups will be broken if water is
frozen in them. During the winter, there-
fore, when the cups are not in use, they
should be removed from the nails and
inverted at the base of the trees, so that
water cannot collect in them.
Fixing Loosened Gutters.
In case a gutter is displaced during the
chipping season, the accident can 1ie easily
repaired by reinserting it in the old in-
cision and driving two nails into the tree
flush with the bottom of the gutter-one
nail near the center of the face and the
other near the upper end of the gutter.
Supported by these two nails a gutter will
stand the scraping of the dip knife with-
out slipping. The gutter and both nails
can readily be drawn from the tree at
the end of the season.
The rapid introduction of the cup and
gutter system, by turpentine operators
proves beyond a doubt that the experi-
mental stage has been passed. No strong-
er confirmation of the value of the results
obtained at Ocilla, Ga., could be given than
the fact that by far the greater portion
of the cups placed during the past winter
were on farms where the cup had been
tested on a small scale during the preced-
ing season. Not all operators are yet con-
vinced; there are still doubters and scof-
fers, but their number is rapidly diminish-
In the hands of a few the system has
been abused. The fact that under it the
trees are not weakened and made subject
to overthrow by windstorms, as boxed
trees are, has induced some operators to
largely increase the number of cups per
tree as compared with the average of
boxes. The returns from such trees prove
that there is a distinct limit to the sap
surface which can be removed without
weakening the vitality of the tree and
lessening the flow of the resin. The prac-
tice of overcupping results, therefore, in
a financial loss.
In addition to the increased returns
from the use of cups, the naval stores
industry has been benefited in two other
lines by the development of the cup sys-
tem. In many cases timber owners have
made decided concessions in their leases
to operators, on condition that the cups
be used and no boxes cut. In other in-
stances large tracts of timber have been
brought under turpentine operation by
the cup system, though their owners have
persistently refused to lease them for box
The rapid rise in the value of turpen-
tine timber within the past few years has
contributed largely to its more conserva-
tive treatment. A thing of little value
in the past, it has received only a small
amount of care. Its rapid enhancement in
value, and the strong probability of a
still further increase, gives the turpen-
tine operator every reason to treat his
timber carefully. Formerly it was an
easy matter for an operator to work
hastily through a place, then move a short
distance and develop a new place on tim-
ber just as inexpensive as that on which
he had been working. But now the ope-
rator knows that when his present foca-
tion is exhausted lie is certain to experi-
ence difficulty in finding a new location,
and equally certain that a largely in-
creased price must be paid for it. This
natural operation of the law of supply and
demand is rapidly bringing serious and
earnest thought to the question of how
best to preserve the present holdings.
The cup and putter system with its great
economies is doing much to solve the

consummate these purchases took place
mainly througfl Florida banks. The pur-
chases themselves meant the introduc-
tion into the State of a great volume of
active capital, backed by business men of
energy and intelligence. This money in a
large part has come to Florida to stay and
The sale of these large bodies of lands
involved the payment of hundreds of thou-
sandsof dollars into the State and.county
treasuries for delinquent taxes. This fund
cannot be measured with exactness, but
to anyone familiar with the reports of the
State Treasurer, it is apparent that the
free and active movement in wild lands
during the past few years has resulted in
the payment of many hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars of tax claims, which had
been accumulating on the books of the
State with small hopes of recovery.
If the original purchase of timber lands
from their foreign holders inured to the
benefit of Florida's bankers, as we have
seen, the practical benewfs of subsequent
sales has been more direct and far greater.
Ten years ago, we had in the State of
Florida an asset in our timbered lands,
the ultimate value of which, as standing
timber alone, reached many millions of
dollars. A small part of this asset was
being constantly utilized in the manu-
facture of lumber, it is true, but as a
whole it was stationary, without influence
upon trade or commerce. It is to the
lumberman and naval stores producer that
we owe a radical change in this situation.
Instead of being locked up and held out
of reach of trade, this vast asset is now
the subject of active interchange of val-
ues, forming a wide gasis of prosperity
for bankers never available to them be-
Effect upon Commerce.
The effect of these industries upon the
commerce of the State is pointedly shown
by a few figure. According to the United
States census the lumber and timber
products of Florida in 1880 were valued
at $5,514,879. By 1900 the value of these
products had reached $10,848,403, an in-
crease of nearly 100 per cent in ten years.
Aecordingto the last report of the Com-
missioner of Agriculture of Florida, the
business during the year 1904 covered by
the port shipments, had attained a value
of $13,448,498, a gain of 24 per cent in
four years. The figures last given leave
out of consideration local consumption
and rail shipments, which, if included,
would doubtless double the results shown.
The rosin and turpentine products of the
State in 1890 were valued at only $191,-
859. By 1900 the business had grown to
such an extent that the product was val-
ued by the United States census of that
year at $6,4069,65, an increase of 3,270
per cent in ten years. The report of the
Commissioner of Agriculture shows that
the port shipments of naval stores in 1904
amounted to $10,901,465. Even upon this
restricted basis of calculation, the result
shows an increase of nearly 69 per cent
in the four years succeeding the last cen-
sus figures. While these figures are a
reliable basis of comparison, the absolute
gain has been far greater than indicated.
The only available statistics since the
census of 1900, both for lumber and naval
stores, are based upon the ocean shipments
from our ports. They do not include the
consumption of the State or the great
volume of rail shipments. So large a part
of the lumber and naval stores of Florida
is marketed by rail transportation that,
by taking this element into consideration,
it would be safe to assert that these in-
'dustries have increased 100 per cent. dur-
ing the four years ending December 31,
1904. The turpentine and rosin product
of Florida for the year 1905 will probably
reach a total of not far from $20,000,000.
Of the world's production of naval stores,
the United States furnish more than 96
per cent, one-half of which is produced in
n no way can the gain in the business
of e State be more accurately shown
than in the increase of its banking inter-
ests. In 1899 the total resources of the
National and State banks of Florida ag-
gregated $12,492,961. By 1904 this had in-
creased to $.2f.7907,4Hi6, a gain in four years
of 1:3 per cent. This remarkable growth
of the banking business of Florida has fol-
lowed and kept pace with the production
of lumber and naval stores. In large part,
it represents the introduction and in-
crease of the capital of the State arising
from the development of industries di-
rectly and indirectly connected with for-
est products. Ten or fifteen years ago
the wholesale business of Florida was in
its infancy. Our food stuffs were fur-
nished by the wholesalers of the North
and the jobbers of Georgia. The demands
of the lumber and turpentine producer
and the introduction of new capital, have
made possible the development of the job-
bing business of Florida to a degree of
prosperity which has surpassed all ex-
The indirect effects of these industries
upon business conditions cannot be defi-
nitely measured. But the growth of our
banks and our shipping and jobbing inter-
ests have been paralleled by the develop-
ment of scores of other industries which
have not attracted attention. The labor
alone necessary to conduct the lumber
and naval stores interests will probably
represent the active employment of fifty
thousand men. Directly dependent upon
these industries, therefore, are probably
two hundred thousand people living in
the State of Florida. Nothing more point-
edly illustrates our present dependence
upon these industries.
As to the Future.
The future of a business so intimately
connected with the commercial prosperity
of the State cannot fail to concern the
representatives of Florida's banking in-
terests. As bankers and business men,
we ask, how long will this industry last,
and what will it leave behind? These are
questions easier to ask than to answer.
Consumed in its use, the forest lasts no
longer than the time required to convert
it into money. It is doubtless true that
the period of the greatest prosperity of
the business is now with us. It is to be
expected that at the end of ten years, it
will show a marked decline. The lumber
business may last longer than the naval
stores industry, because it is usual to
include in the former term the manufac-
ture of cross-ties and cypress lumber,
the peculiar conditions of which promise
longer life. But at the present rate of
destruction, the forests of Florida can
scarcely last more than fifteen years. A
more favorable climate and sparser popu-
lation tend to support the conclusion that
natural re-forestation will to some extent
replace the destruction of the first growth.
It has been observed by some that sec-
ond and even third growths of pine occur
in Florida in shorter periods than in more
northerly States. Hence it is reasonable
to anticipate that the unsettled areas of
the State will continue to produce a eon-
santly diminishing volume of forest prod-
ucts from the second and third growths
of pine springing up in the aftermath of
the lumberman. But with the destruction
of the first growth, the volume of the
business will be reduced to negligible pro-
portions, and it is safe to assert that in
another decade the lumber and turpen-
tine business of Florida will be nearing
the end of its long and prosperous his-
When our forests are gone, they can
never be restored. The millions which
they represent will have passed from our
control. Present and future prosperity
depend in no small measure upon the ex-
tent of the accumulated wealth into which
our forest products are converted. What-
ever prices these products are able to
command in the markets of the world
must fix the return which we shall derive
from the absolute destruction of the great-
est asset which the State now possesses.
Low prices of lumber and naval stores
mean an actual loss which can never be
recouped. It is, therefore, of the great-
est importance to the entire State that
the prices which our forest products bring
shall be both remunerative and stable.
The lumberman or the turpentine opera-
tor is by no means the only one affected
by the prices of these staple products.
Every branch of industry will be benefited
by high or depressed by low prices. It is
to be hoped that the conservative influ-
ence of our bankers, added to the intelli-
gent co-operation of the producers, will
prevent over-production and stimulate

What, After the Pines?
To the mind of the thoughtful business
man, dwelling upon the future of this
State, must have often recurred the ques-
tion: "What shall come after the pines?"
When our forests are gone, what shall
we have to show for their value? Upon
the answers to these questions depends
the commercial future of this State. It is
clear that out of the great volume of
capital brought into Florida for the de-
velopment and prosecution of this busi-
ness, some portion must remain. No one
can say how much. But in studying the
history of other communities where sim-
ilar movements have taken place and
similar questions have been asked and
answered by the facts of time and expe-
rience, the gratifying conclusion is sus-
tainable that the larger part of this new
capital will remain to develop the agri-
cultural and manufacturing industries of
the State: The lumber and naval stores
men are not, as a class, of a migratory
character. A large proportion settle
where they have made their money and
found ndw friends. Many remain where
they came to sojourn. Their original
capital and accumulated profits remain
with them to form a part of the produc-
tive assets of the country. Their ener-
gies, intelligence and experience are con-
tributed to promote the industrial prog-
ress and material prosperity of their new
homes. They become useful, enterprising
and progressive citizens, whose industry,
thrift and business experience will con-
tribute more to the wealth of the State
than the capital they brought with them.
In his way a large part of the value of
our forests will remain in the State in
the hands of its citizens, new and old,
to be used in the upbuilding and develop-
ment of the State along the lines of its
natural resources. Nor should the thought
be overlooked that the influence and ex-
ample of the lumberman and turpentine
operator is of the utmost value in the
commercial awakening and education of
the "cracker." Bringing near to these
people and into their daily life methods of
thrift, examples of energy, and higher
standards of living and education, this
influence cannot fail to leave a deep and
enduring effect upon the character of the
"cracker," to the lasting benefit of the
When we consider that out of the vast
area of land in Florida, less than one mil
lion acres is under cultivation, little more
need be said in answer to the question
what shall come after the pines. The ex-
haustion of the lumber business will leave
our lands ready for the farmer. Tho
thrifty and energetic men from the Souti
and Northwest who have made theii
homes in Florida will not be slow to sein
upon the opportunities which our cheal
and fertile lands extend to the industrious
and intelligent farmer.
The accumulated riches which will thel
represent the destruction of our forest
will furnish the means for the develop
ment of these lands. The elements o:
prosperity will not be found to be lack
ing when the pines are gone. Men, money
energy and fertile lands will be left
Surely, with proper direction, these an
the essential factors of wealth and pros
perity. It only remains for the thought
ful and experienced business men of the
State to direct the application of thi
capital and this energy. No other inter
est is closer to the problem than the
bankers of Florida, and our best hopes o
its wise solution must be left in grea
part to your constant thought and help

DECENCY VS. VULGARITY.
The Record publishes in another col-
umn to-day a letter from one of the larg-
est turpentine operators in the South.
It is not signed in print for the reason
that it was a private letter to the editor
of this paper and we do not feel like tak-
ing the liberty to publish the name with-
out the consent of the author. At the
same time we know the author well
enough to know that he does not say any-
thing in private correspondence that he
would not be willing to say in public col-
umns, if necessary, and if there are any
doubters as to the authenticity they can
be satisfied by calling or writing to this
We make this little introduction to this
article for the purpose of showing two
First, that the Record does not under-
take to deceive its readers by articles
written in the editor's office, purporting
to be written by some reader and sent in
as a communication. In saying this, we
make that direct charge against Mr. Shot-
ter's Naval Stores Review. There are al-
leged communications published in that
paper every week that are written in the
office of the Review, or in Mr. Shotter's
office, and we defy Mr. Shotter or Mr.
Gamble to deny it. No reputable trade
paper, it matters not what trade it may
represent, or faction it may champion,
will be guilty of such violations of news-
Second, that the vulgar caricatures now
being employed by Mr. Shotter in his
campaign against the operators' interests
is a serious reflection upon the intelli-
gence of the very people for whom they
are intended; and are not only not appre-
ciated, but are most severely censured by
the operators, as is cited by the letter re-
ferred to above.
We want to congratulate the Florida
bankers upon the election of Mr. E. W.
Lane as president of this association. Mr.
Lane is one of the youngest bank presi-
dents in the South and one of the ablest.
As president of the Atlantic National
Bank of Jacksonville, he is the executive
head of one of the South's largest and
strongest financial institutions, and the
compliment to him is in every way worth-
ily bestowed and deserved.

"Dear Sir: I wish to commend and
thank you for the instructive and dig-
nified article beginning on page 3 of your
last week's issue. In my opinion, its ap-
pearance was opportune, and will have a
decidedly wholesome effect among pro-
ducers generally, especially so when con-
trasted with the puerile matter and cari-
catures contained in the opposition's Sa-
vannah organ of same date, which is a
reflection upon the intelligence of those
whom it was mainly intended for, and
is another illustration of Shotter & Com-
pany's low estimate of the character and
mental status of the turpentine operators

dustry. Mr. A. D. Covington is vice-

as a whole.
"In this connection, I wish to quote
to me from one of the largest producers
in West Florida, under date of 8th instant,
which reads, in part, as follows:
"Am glad to see stuff come to a reason-
ably good price. I suppose you hive seen
the last circular letter gotten out by Shot-
ter. It is an admission that Coachman
has beaten him at his own game, and it
looks now to me as if Coachman can take
care of his and our interest O. K.
"'Abnormally high prices confuse labor
and small holders of timber, and cause us
to lose heavily when stuff gets down to
straight good prices.'
"It would seem that values (which are
much better than this time last year)
have settled down to a trading basis, and
producers are to be congratulated on the
present situation and prospect-partica-
larly so in view of having been notified by
perhaps the best posted man in the naval
stores trade, that the price for spirits

Ion during the summer months.
