prominent developers in the Southern States.
CAPTAIN W. J. HILLMAN.
Some one has asked, who is the most popular turpentine man in Florida? They are all popular. A bigger hearted,
more liberal, more progressive clan of men never lived in a State. They are in the very front ranks of the Captains of
Industry to-day who are making Florida one of the' great commercial and industrial States of the Union. And of them
all there is not one more popular. certainly. than captainn W. .I. lillnan. of Live Oak. captainn lillman's heart is as
big as his body; his purse is never too tightly tied to lie oplnel to any worthy charity: he is the adviser of the banker.
the "pal" of the preacher. the "clhumn" of tht small lhoy. tlhe friend of the 1poor-indeed, the friend of everybody.

He worked at his calling there until hli accepted a position as wwols rider by Mr. Ililliurn. who was then a large turpen-
tine operator. Keen interest in hi, work. lose application to duty. executive ability. integrity of character were
qualifications that soon made him a ar nt ar a it a follower of men. When hle soon acquired interests of his own. his
financial success was assured, and for years captainn Ilillinan has Ieen regarded as one of tlle most successful turpentine

OUR GROWTH FOR THE PAST
The imost prosperous year in Live Oak's
history has been the year 1905 which is
now closing. Never in all the past have
the merchants done such a volume of
business, nor the farmers experienced such
an income from their crops.
I'he cotton receipts have been approxi-
imateliv :3.00.000 lbs. of seed cotton and
4.500 bales of lint. all handled by our mer-
chants and purchased by them direct from
the growers. 2.300 bales have been ginned
by the two gins.
The freight receipts have increased fully
40 per cent. over the year 1904, and prop-
erty valuations have gone up more than
.0 per cent. During this year we have
gained 1.500 in population. Built 275 new
buildings. Voted $-200.000 for public im-
provements. Established several new in-
dustries. Building of Drew Railroad to
Fernanlina commenced. Live Oak, Perry
& Gulf railroad completed nearly fifty
miles. Increase in assessed value of city
property. over $1.000.000. About twen-
tv new business concerns. New corpora-
tions organized with a combined cash cap-
ital of over $5,000.000. Live Oak Daily
Demoriat established. New $15,000 Bap-
tist church completed. Broke record in
cotton shipments by several hundred bales.
Sold more mules, horses and farm machin-
ery than ever before in the history of
This has been the banner year in all
lines of industry. and. we believe, only a
prophlc.-vy f what 1906 is to be. A con-
tiniuin~ stream of population is pouring
into o, r city. More than half a dozen
fan;lics of substantial citizens have come
into the city and taken up residence dur-
ing the la-t two weeks, and there are men
of nme;ns now on the streets trying to
Ibuy a business so as to come to Live Oak.
Somi-.ehow it has gotten out that Live
Oak is a gissl town. and that the people
are pulling together for the common ad-
vancemuent of their individual interests,
and those from the outside are coming to
"nvestigiate. hut in almost every instance
they remain as permanent citizens.
SOME CAUSES BACK OF OUR
As a inat.ter of fact there have a num-
ber of things conspired to help us grow
into the splendid city we are today, but
there are at least three which deserve
sin-ial mention in this paper.

8 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Men Who are Making Live Oak
(A. H. Marsh, Staff Correspondent.)
Second Advent Christian Church, Live Oak,
THE DOWLING ENTERPRISES.
The story of the Dowling industries is
so interwoven with the development of
Live Oak that one would not be complete
without the other. It was about fifteen
years ago that Thos. Dowling established
a sawmill at Live Oak, moving it from
Lake City. The mill was small and Live
Oak was a lhaile:. Inut both have grown
apace until ttnlay Thos. Dowling is one of
the leading factors in the naval stores.
lunmelr and railroad industries in \\est
Florida, and Live Oak is a busy little city
of tive thousand people. Mr. Dowling is
a good example ot tlie substantial Florida
product. Hiding a big heart and a fine
business acumen under a rugged exterior,
lie has made his impress and founded a
strong following in the community in
whihich he cast his lot. lie is in the fifties
and is the father of a large family. He
is a hard worker, ant his business is his
recreation. He is a devoted church mnem-
her, being one of the leaders of tile Second
Advent Christian Church.
Meeting with continual success as an
independent operator since his removal to
Live Oak, he has recently merged his in-
terests with two large corporations, to be
mentioned further on.
R. L. Dowling, or "Bob" Dowling as he
is popularly called in these parts, a nephew
of Thos. Dowling, moved to Suwannee
County about ten years ago. He bought
a farm two miles from Live Oak. It was
a small farm, and he put a mortgage on
it, so "they say." But he paid the mort-
gage and a little later he branched out
into the logging business. This enterprise
was the beginning of his successful ca-
reer. He made money at the logging busi-
ness, and in a short time started a little
saw mill at Peacock. His success contin-
ued and about three years ago he moved
the mill to Live Oak, enlarged it greatly
until now it has a cutting capacity of
twenty-five million feet of lumber per year.
About this time he began the building of
a log road from Live Oak through the
timber districts southwards. This road
was the nucleus of the present Live Oak,
Perry & Gulf Railroad, which is to-day an
independent and successful freight and
passenger road, with a mileagle of about
fifty-five miles. I)uring the past year it
was incorporated, with Thos. bowlingg as
president; R. L. Dowling. vice-president
and general manager; and Capt. H. H. Tift,
.John H. Powell and Lee Ensign as direc-
tors and stockholders. The road is now in
sight of Perry and will le continued on
to St. Marks, which in the near future
will bie one of the deep water ports of
the W\est Florida peninsula. In addition
to the nain line a branch has been built
from IDay to Mayo. a distance of about
fourteen miles. lThe Live Oak. Perry &
Gulf Railroad passes through one of the
finest. IHlts of virgin timber in tile South.
and is destined to play an important part
in tle industrial development of Florida.
The interests of Thos. Dowling and iR.
L. Dowling were further merged when the

secretary- andi auditor of the Live Oak,

writing the introduction to Mr. Ridley's

Mr. Ridley believes in Live Oak. He
is doing a splendid work for the town. He
:s talking and writing and working for its
interests day in and day out, and he is
accomplishing. He is a man of charming
personality and fine business ability. He
is the friend and adviser with the business
men and a "chum" with the boys. He is
an ardent sportsman, and I am told that
he is the finest shot in Live Oak. Among
the many (Christmas presents he received

At the meeting of the new board of di-
rectors, which had been elected by tle
stockholders, the officers of the Florida
Bank and Trust Company to serve for the
ensuing year were elected as follows:
President ('Charles E. (Garner.
Vice-President, Arthur F. IPerry.
Vice-President. Charles B. Rogers.
ashierr, W\. Albert Redding.
The president and two vice-presidents,
together with W. F. Coachman, S. B. Hub-
hard, D. T. Gerow, Raymond Cay, D. H.
MeMillan and A. M. Ives, constitute the
executive committee of the company.
When nominations were declared in or-
der for the office of president, Mr. Walter
F. Coachman, who has served the company
as president during the past year, declined
the nomination for that office for the pres-
ent year. He stated that other matters
required his attention, and he could not
devote the time and attention that would
be necessary to the office, and also that
he expected to be absent from the city
for several months. If he would have ac-
cepted the office it would have been tend-
ered him by a unanimous vote.
Tile nomination of Captain Charles E.
Garner for the office of president of the
company was made by M r. V. R. Fuller
of Tampa, who paid a glowing tribute to
Mr. Coachman and his administration of
the company and then placed in nomina-
tion Claptain Garner. The close friendship
of Mr. Fuller for both Mr. Coachman and
Captain Garner is too well known to need
any comnient, ani it is needless to say
that the nomination of ('aptain (Garner was
most heartily seconded, and that lie was
elected by a unanimous vote.
As President of the Jacksonville Board
of Trade for the past even years Cap-
tain Garner has won the confidence and
esteem of every citizen of Jacksonville and
of the State of Florida. His business abil-
ity is of such high order that he has now
twen elected to the head of the largest
financial institution in Florida, and elected
by a board of directors who know his
worth. It is an honor that any man would
feel proud of, and the many friends of
Captain Garner will most heartilly con-
gratulate him when they learn of the new
honor conferred upon him. They will also
congratulate the Florida Bank and Trust
company upon securing for its president
Former Governor W. S. Jennings. who
was a vice-president of the company last
year, was re-elected by the stockholders
as a member of the board of directors, but
declined to serve. He has dissolved his
connection with the company, and it is
understood will engage in other business
in the future.
In the election of Mr. Charles B. Rogers
as vice-president of the company the board
of directors have secuhed the services of
one of the best known and most honored
and respected business men of Florida. Mr.
Rogers is identified with a large numler of
the leading business enterprises of the
State and has always been successful in
Mr. Perry will continue as a vice-presi-
dent of the company, and Mr. Redding

promontory, formed by tle twisting andl

lishment ofa winter colony of health and
Alighting at the station. \we get a gen-
eral glimpse of the numerous buildings
through the green pines with which the
park abounds. The main hotel building
commands an imposing scene in the midst
of tile beautiful park. containing abuut
seventy acres. Broad piazzas surround the
entire building. Entering the main hIll
we find a large and cinoin(lious office, la-
dies' parlor. handsomely furnished, and
all of the conveniences and attractions
that go to make up the gPathering places
in a nmolern hotel. A telegraph and tele-
phone system in the hotel keep tile guests
within easy tonih of the outside world.
A big log tire burns cheerfully in the im-
inense fire-place in the office. Adjoining
tle ojc.e is a spacious and inviting looking
diinng-ronn. resplendent with dainty china
and table-linen of snowy whiteness. A
comllpetent corlp,- of cooks and waiters are
in charge of the culinary department of
On tile first and :second floors of the
hotel are the well appointed rooms. They
a: e tastily furnishe(l. with handsome cuov-
erings on the floors. with iron Ieds and
sleep-enticing springs and mattresses. Hot
and cold running water is a feature of
each room. All roomns have fire places or
.Adjaent to tlhe hotel are three distinct
swimmiing 1pols. On entering we find on
either side a large pild. one being deep. and
the other one being shallow, the more ex-
pert using the former, the timid bather
using tlie latter. In a separate room is a
somewhat smaller ipml which can be heated
to any desired temperature. The water in
these pools is continually changing, being
furnished with a never-ceasing supply of
the sulphur water famous to thi- region.
Individual bath-rooms aie ranged along the
sides of the building furnished with lock
and key wherein one may keep such bath-
ing costumes as are desired. An attendant
is on duty at all times to care for the
'omfort of those wishing to avail them-
selves of these most invigorating plunges.
eAaving the Iools we approach an open
air pavilion furnished with swinging chairs
In front of the hotel is an immense
brick-walledt spring. from whose depths tile
crystal sulphur water. laden with its medi-
cinal properties, bubbles forth.
In their endeavor to make Dowling Park
a mIulel resort, the promoters have not
forgotten to add an indoor amusement for
tie lwnefit of the men. In consequence
they have erected a billiard hall and bowl-
ing alley. lPool or billiards may be in-
dulged in while four well built alleys fur-
nish a more strenuous form of amunlsement
for tlose so de0siring. Directly opposite
the hilliard hall and howling alley is lo-
cated the assembly hall. This structure
presents an innovation tio most tourist ho-
tels. Wishing to eliminate the element of
noise from thle hotel proper the promoters
have erected this building as a hall for
social gatherings. also a place where the
ladies may hold their fairs. It also pro-
videls a suitable place for the conduct of
religious meetings. This annex is well
lighted by windows on all sides, the floor
is of quartered oak. well waxed. affording
a most delightful surface on which happy
couples may while away tile blissful hours
to the strains of a comlwtent orchestra,
furnished by a generous management. In
this' building the men have their smokers
and rubles a't 'hist. and we doubt not
that it will be constantly in use. Enough
for the numerous buildings which go to
make life pleasant for visitors. A prime
requisite of any amusement resort is that
ample facilities for out-door recreation be
provided: without these the enterprise is
doomed to be avoided by tlhe pleasure-lov-
ing public. Although tile details involving
tle establishment of sllch a p!'ae are legion
the management have ip(e'cially exerted
themselves in sullli forms of out door

An Ideal Tourist Resort.
(Continued from page 11)
of the gun, this place caters with an
abundance of game seldom seen in any sec-
tion of the country. A short walk or
drive of three miles brings one to the
home of the deer and bear, and with a
number of bood dogs, the partridge, quail
and wild turkey disclose tlhir hiding,
places and one enjoys the sport of kings.
A boat house, wherein is kept a naptha
lunch and numbers of smaller boats, will
appeal to those who enjoy the pleasure of
a sail on the Suwannee. A stable is main-
tained on the premises for the exclusive
use of the guests. Here both saddle and
driving horses may be obtained and many
delightful drives through the country may
be indulged in from day to day. Drives
through blooming cotton fields and places
of historic interest are to be visited.
The swiftness with which the Suwannee
flows prevents the formation of stagnant
pools of water on which the ever pestilent
mosquito thrives, thus the place is prac-
tically free from this troublesome insect.
Malaria is unknown and the death rate the
lowest of any section in the State. The
drainage system is well nigh perfect; in
fact, every detail which goes to make up
the ideal resort, here manifests itself. The
park is on a high level ground, thus elim-
inating the danger of an overflow of the
Game in its season, and fresh fish and
oysters shipped directly from the coast
are a desirable part of a perfect cuisine.
To those wishing the privacy of their own
home, cottages can he rented furnished for
as low as five dollars per week. Season
guests can obtain special rates, according
to length of stay and number and location
of rooms. There is a resident physician
at the park. The entire system of build-
ings is lighted with electricity. In closing
I would say: To those wishing to free
themselves from the cares of business, to
those seeking renewed health and to those
who love nature in all hr glory and vivid
beauty, I would recommend a season's
stay at Dowling White Sulphur Springs
Park. No snow, no ice, no piercing winds
to chill the blood, no exorbitant rates.
Nothing but joy and gladness greet the
winter visitor to Florida. Further infor-
mation relative to the above may be ob-
tained by corresponding with Mr. W. M.
Bennett, manager Dowling Park Hotel,

THE LIVE OAK MANUFACTURING
'The alove concern is not a corporation.
'but a company owned and controlled by
(ieorige E. Porter and lhis two sons. Mr.
Porter is president of the company and i

rte. secret treasury. retr an t srr. This
collcpany i's one of tlhe strong factors in
thie making of Live Oak. Besides conduct-
inl; an nimuense saw and planing mill. it
furnishes the electric lights, power and ice
for live Oak.
The plant occupies about three acres in
the eastern end of town. a few hundred
vards from the depot. And it is a well
tilled three acres. almost every foot being
used for the collblinedl inillustries. In addi-
tion t lis plaint. thle conmpan owns and

1Mr. Porter liean at once the erection of
1iis present splendid mill.
It is to-daly noe of tie most complete
anid p-to-date mils in Florida. The saw-
mill has a cutting capacity of alout ten
thouandl feet iper dayci. the planing mill
a daily dressing capacity of about fifty
thousand feet. and tlihe gang-edger now
5'einintinstalled will furnish a twenty thous-
and feet da1.l output.
lThe electric power for running the mill
iucges.teld the idea of furnishing light and
cower for t ie town. And. acting upon this
idea. tie Live Oak Macnufaeturinu, Com-

ni-hing to Live Oiak a lighting system that
will compare favorably with that of any
Sotllhern town. andc at a lower rate than
vrecva:ls in any other place in Florida.
An ice-plant was a later innovation of
lhis progressive company. A modern plant
was established last year. and today ice
