sounldlings and borings taken in this tract

and about 53,(K00 cubic yards soft material.
tihe surface of the rock is very uneven,

For South Jacksonville.
"At present there are fey commercial
establishmlents il South Jacksonville. This
is. doubtless because of the distance be-
tween the navigable channel and the estab-
lished pierhead line. There is little doubt
that this side of the ri\er would be greatly
uied for commercial purposes if the tawen-
ty-four foot depth were extended to the
pierhead line. Such extension would also
greatly benefit the harlsir as providing bet-
ter anchorage ground than at present ex-
ists. This work will be beneficial, but is
Ibv no means so urgent as the extension to
the left bank.
"'The adviability of making this exten-
sion toward tile right bank of the river at

lThe cost can not le determined without a
preliminary survey. It is estimated that
such a survey will cost $3.000. 1 am of the
opinion that tlie' probable benefits to ibe
derived by the extension of the twenty-
four foot deiptlh to the south bank are suf-
licient to justify a survey. I would there
fore recommend thliat the sum of $3,000 be

Prayer for Relief.
The prayer for relief in each bill, as
stated above, goes further than that of
the bills that have been previously filed.
The court, in addition to the usual pray-
er for injunction and relief as stated in
the other bills, is asked to enoin the Board
of Drainage Commissioners from assessing
or imposing any tax for drainage purposes
onl the lands described in the bill-even
though the law under which the drainage
tax is imposed be constitutional-until
after the Board of Drainage Commission-
ers have made or caused to be made, a per-
.sunal examination and inspection of all the
hlndus of the complainants and ascertained
which of them are subject to the tax.
Accompanying the bills are a number of
allidavits from persons who, under oath,
endorse the allegations of the bill. These
were submitted to Judge Locke and, fol-
lowing the precedent established by him-
self in regard to the similar bills filed by
other complainants, the court granted the
temporary restraining order, and these
cases will now take their course with the
Why Suits Are Brought.
The suits are brought for two principal
reasons. In the first place, the Board of
L)rainage Commissioners has left it entire-
ly optional with the tax collectors of the
several counties in the drainage district,
whether or not to enforce the collection
of the tax, and, there being nothing to
prevent the lands from being advertised for
taxes at aLny time hereafter for the non-
paIymient of this drainage tax, the injunc-
tion was taken out as a matter of ordin-
It tile second place, as the prayer for
relief shows, Major Abrams believes that,
even if the drainage law should be finally
held to lie constitutional there was no due
process of law in the proceedings of the
Board of Drainage Commissioners in tak-
ing a map and, without investigation ana
examination, to declare large areas of land
s\anmp. overflowed, or alluvial. He will
ask tlhe court to hold that this must be
determined byvq actual investigation.
That Proposed Amendment.
A third, and a very important reason for
the bringing of the suit, takes its rise in
the proposed constitutional amendment.
lajor Abrams believes that this amend-
mnent is nothing more nor less than a mere
re-enactirent of the present drainage law.
Therefore, it is necessary. he holds, for
tle courts to decide whether or not high
anti dry land that needed no drainage, or
land that had already been drained, or
land that could not lie drained, could be

If such lands can not be made subject

MANUFACTURERS ARE PUZZLED.
Controlling the Output of Manufactured
The conditions imposed on manufactu-
rers by the Southern Supply and Machin-
ery Dealers' Association are such as to call
for careful study and full consideration.
There are so many manufacturers that
make parallel lines of goods and compara-
tively so few dealers to act as distributing
agents that it is almost impossible to find
sufficient of the latter to go round. It is
a fact nevertheless that the dealer is en-
titled to protection, and if any manufac-
turer finds it essential to sell through the
jobber he should be forced to give this, if
he is not inclined to do so voluntarily.
On Lne other hand the jobber should not
insist that a manufacturer whose goods he
does not handle be compelled to make de-
liveries through him or not dispose of his
goods in any given territory.
~'Se Southern Sunpply and Machinery
Dealers' Association declaring for an honor-
ary membership list is, in the opinion of
The Tradesman, a mistake, or least pre-
It would have been the part of wisdom
to at leas tgive the manufacturers' associ-
ation another year in which to demonstrate
their good faith. As it is they stand in
a measure discredited, as do the joint exec-
utive committee of the two associations,
who outlined the policy adopted by the
Black sheep are hard to keep out of any
fold, but it is uniformly unjust to pass
judgment on the many because the few fail
to live up to an agreement. It is too late,
of course, to remedy any past mistakes,
but it will be well to watch developments
so that in another year advantage of ex-
perience can be secured.
Manufacturers and dealers have many
interests in common. and it is essential
that they work together and in full har-
mony and to do this a feeling of confidence
must exist on both sides and conservative
rather than radical measures are desirable
if lasting good is to be accomplished.

PINEAPPLE CROP WILL BE LARGE.
Fruit This Season Is Uunusually Large and
of Fine Quality.
Tampa, April 20.-After enjoying a most
prosperous season, the new Halcyon Hall
has closed its doors to the public. Al-
though this popular hotel was late in
opening, Proprietor Graham is more than
satisfied with the results. There are yet
a number of guests in the house that
have been there the entire season, who
will remain until the first of May. Dur-
ing the summer the house will be complet-
ed in every detail and it is probable that a
considerable sized addition will be built.
Mr. and Mrs. Graham for years were pro-
prietors of the Hotel Biscayne, making it
one of the most popular hotels in the
State. The Halcyon Hall ranks with the
best. Louis Cole. who has been with Mr.
and Mrs. Graham lo, these many years,
leaves in a few days for Canada, where he
occupies the position of head clerk in one
of the large summer hotels.
The Pineapple Crop.
The pineapple crop in this section is
larger than ever before. Several planta-
tions are in bearing this year for the first
time, and the percent of plants bearing is
very heavy. The apples will run large and
will be of good quality. The old gelds will
have an uncommon yield. T. V. Moore,
who has one of the largest plantations in
this portion of Dade county, says that the
percentage of plants bearing this season

will begin to go forward about the first
of May. Several of the schooners belong-

made ready for the heavy business through
the shipping season. Next season it is
probable that the Florida key planters
will be able to ship their products from
the depots along the line of the Florida
East Coast Railway. especially those on
the more northern keys. This will be a
great advantage to the planters.
The Vegetable Crop.
Heavy shipments of tomatoes and other
vegetables are now being made from near-
ly all the stations in Dade county. The
weather being favorable, it is probable tlat
the shipments will rapidly increase during
the next few weeks. Prices for nearly all
the products of the fields are most satis-

For many months it has been rumored
that the Berg line of foreign steamers
would come to Jacksonville, and now it
seems almost an'assured fact.
Prominent merchants have received com-

terdam to Jacksonville and from Jackson-
ville to Rotterdam.
Using the expression of a prominent
business man, "The Berg line is sure to
come. and within a very short while." The

Florida's Great Crop of Fruit and Vegetables
Taxes Basket Manufacturers,
Not in years has there been such a great
crop of early vegetables in tile state of
Florida as there are this year. The same
is true of the pineapple crop.
The manufacturers of crates and carriers
in this state and Georgia have practically
admitted that they will not be able to
supply the demand for carriers. The tom-
ato crop will demand all the facilities,
which can be employed for that particular
kind of carrier and the pineapple crop both
on the East and West coast is unusually
large. Adlib4e to this is the peach crop,
which. while hurt to a slight extent by the
cold. will be alout as heavy as it was last
Ileretofore Florida and Georgia have
Ienshlipping crates and carriers to several
states farther north and to Cula. Mexico
and other places. But it is evident that
the demand for this product at home will
confine the export trade to a few localities
and a limited number of packages.
The Southern Crate Manufacturers As-
sociation was organized in this city about
two years ago for the purpose of facilitat-
ing the supplying of crates andl carriers to
the vegetable and fruit trade of the South.
The association has performed a great
work in this respect and has obviated all
the troubles along this line that the grow-
ers have experienced in the past, then they
hill will now be passed, provided this
amendment is made a part of it, because
this irotects our interests as far as we can
reasonably hope that any bill that may
be considered will protect them, and it
Will be a decided advantage to get this
national legislation enacted so as to secure
a settlement of this question, which has
been before us for about fifteen years in
various forms, some of which threatened
great annoyance to the wholesale and retail
drug interests of this country.
I sincerely hope, therefore, tlat for tlhe
above reasons you will use your influence
to secure the insertion of this amendment,
and the passage of the bill .when it has
Ieen made a part of it.
were short of carriers in one locality and
overstocked in others. This has been done
while the price has been held down and
all semblance of monopoly for an increase
in prices kept back.
Tihe last two years the association bhs
been more than able to supply the demand.
In fact the factories included in this com-
pact have shipped goods as far north as
Delaware for peaches and have handled the
Mexico and West Indian trade.
But the fact that Florida has experienced
no freezes this year and that a great quan-
tity of vegetables have been shipped and
have brought good prices, has exhausted
the stock which the manufacturers have
had on hand.
The factories are making an earnest
effort to meet the supply and some of
them are working day and night in the
hopes that they will be able to prevent
any drawback to the fruit and vegetable
interests of the two states by the inability
to meet the demand for packages.
The state has experienced a most pro-
fitable winter and spring so far as fruits
and vegetables are concerned and the in-
dications are that for these two great in-
dustries the season is to be the most pro-
fitable in the history of the state.

VIEWS OF MR. A. D. STEVENS.

Arthur D. Stevens, of the Merrill-Stevens
Company, states that a twenty-four foot
channel along the city front of Jackson

bring deeper draft vessels to port and they
could take on heavier cargoes for both
coastwise and foreign ports.
"While a great deal of our interests iare
on the south side of the river," said Mlr.
Stevens, "I am in favor of the city front
being deepened first. When we get deel,

of the channel on the south side.

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 17
CLOSE OF THE NAVAL STORES SEA-
Developments in the two branches of
tihe naval stores trade during the seaSon
of 1905-190t which ended on March 31,
have been of a most interesting character,
inasmuch as prices touched the highest
points recorded since the civil war. This
was attributed solely to the bitter war
waged between two large interests in the
South o get control of the season's output
of naval stores. There were frequent sharp
fluctuations in prices and consumers
throughout the year were constantly at
sea regarding future developments, which
left them in a state of perplexity. Trad
ing in futures at Savannah was extremely
light as a result of the uncertainties which
surrounded the market, particularly for
spirits of turpentine. The highest point
touched in Savannah during the crop sea-
son of 1905-1906 was in June, when spirits
was quoted at seventy-nine cents per gal-
lon and after hovering around this point
for several days the price slumped to sixty
cents. Rosins underwent radical changes,
and during November the lower grades de-
clined three dollars a barrel. The unpre-
cedented slumps were brought about by the
rivalry between the large interests as men-
tioned above. The one interest known as
the "Big Four" but now as the "Big Three"
owing to the withdrawal of a London firm,
finally forced their competitors, the Na-
val Stores Export Co., of Jacksonville,
Florida out of the business on December
5, 1905. The "Big Four" on that date
took over the Naval Stores Export Co.'s
holdings at market prices for spirits and
rosins, which were valued at two and one-
half millions. On December 14th the for-
mer company also eliminated the National
Tank and Export Co. of Savannah, which
was a part of the agreement under which
the "Big Four" took over the stock of the
Naval Stores Export Co. The lowest prices
touched in the New York market during
the season of 1905-1906 were fifty-seven
cents forspirits in April, and three dollars
for common strained rosin, in April, while
the highest points reached were eighty-
one cents per gallon for spirits, in June,
and four dollars and thirty cents per bar-
rel for common rosin, early in March. The
naval stores year just ended, taken as a
whole, was the most successful in the his-
tory of the trade and most profitable to
both producers and dealers. The total re-
ceipts of spirits of turpentine and rosin
for 1905-1906i ending March 31 amounted
to two hundred and six thousand two and
sixty-nine barrels of spirits and six hun-
dred and ninety thousand and sixty-nine
barrels of rosin. The shipments from Sa-
vannah to New York aggregated forty
thousand three hundred and sixty barrels
of spirits and one hundred sixty-one thou-
sand nine hundred and thirty-one barrels
The new year opening of the naval stores
season was launched on April 2 under
favorable auspices particularly for spirits
of turpentine while tile higher grades of
rosins held fairly steady despite the efforts
to depress prices by large interests at
Savannah. The outlook for the naval
stores crop for the coming season according
to leading factors at Savannah and deal-
ers here is promising, but the output will
depend to a great extent upon labor con-
ditions in the turpentine belt. Some fac-
tors look for a decrease i nthe crop of 1906-
1907. of about five per cent. owing to labor
being inadequate, the conditions in the la-
bor market being the more important fac-
tor in determining the extent of the crop,
* while others believe that the crop will be
equa Ito the olp just marketed; that is,
if labor conditions do not grow worse. Re-
garding Chinese labor which is being in-
troduced in the turpentine belt on a moder-
ate scale as a substitute for the negro, it
is believed, will not prove successful, but
other means no doubt will be tried, as the
negro is the most unreliable laborer in the
naval stores industry. The new year open-
ed with spirits quoted at fifty-seven cents
per gallon the same price as prevailed on
April 1, 1905. Should the weather con-
tinue favorable arrivals of new crop spirits
front Florida will be earlier than last year.
There have arrived at Savannah parcels
of new crop of thle four top grades of pale
rosins and prices during the week have
been reduced at Savannah to the extent of
fifty cents per two hundred and eighty
pounds and it is intimated that sales at
still heavier declines have been made.
commonn rosins however, remain firm and
no new crop arrivals of the latter can be
reasonably expected before June depending
on weather conditions. Trade in the local
market has heien extremely dull and buy-
ers arc holding aloof pending the next
movement at Savannah by large interests
Here. According to the belief of conser-
vative dealers here, the prices of spirits
and common n rosin will not seek the former
low levels, but will in all probability, av-
erage the same as they have during the
paIst sea ison

Large Shipments of Saw Mills.
The'l Saleim Iron Works. of Winston-Sa-
lemn. N. ('.. Iecently made a solid train-

lishes a new record for the south. This is
a anigihle plrosf that the manufacturers of
this se. rtion ai r a le to handle business on
a large scale. a nd tlat they are getting the
Exclusiveness of Sea Island Cotton.
It is stated with an air of seriousness
that South ( arolina planters have entered
into a combination for the purpose of re-
fusing to sell any Sea island cottonseed
outside of that State, where is produced
tile best grade of that long staple cotton.
,The writer making this announcement,
"Georgia and Florida raise an inferior
grade. dependent to a large extent for its
quality on plantings of fresh seed from
South I'arolina. aist season and the year
before e were poor years for the Sea Island
planters. The market for their high-priced
crop is sonelwhat limited, and the output
of (;eorgia and Florida makes an oversup-
ply. Niith a consequent weakening of the
pri-c. lalor- in the islands of South (aro-
lilna s scarce, high Iwiceved and inefficient,
and it is practically impossible for the
planters to Iind a profit in the prevailing
price The only salvation that the plant-
ers could see l before them lay in cutting
down t(lhe supply of long staple cotton.
Tlhe Sea Island product furnishes a fibre
froin I .o inches long to B21/2 inches long.,
and it is essential to the manufacture of
imitation silks and other high-priced cot-
ton fabrics. The planters hold that the
manual fartur ers sholldI andl would pay more
imone for the Souith C'arolina staple if the
Iore plentiful Georgia and Florida cotton
wias redinced in quality. And this th'cv
lioxl' to accomplish iby shutting off their
emlipetitors' supply of the all-important
fre"- seed. The combination of South
'aroliina planters to keep their seed to
theni-elves will lie regretfully heard of by
the Egyptian government. Egyptian eot-
ton lha lcenll steadily deteriorating, and a
