Hon, R. E, Rose Tells Florida Horticulturists
The Need of Immigration,
During the meeting of the Florida State
Horticultural Society, Hon. K. E. Rose,
State Chemist, delivered an address on
'"Florida Inmtigration-What Shall It be ?"
The address in full was as follows:
Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen:
* The subject assigned me, "Florida Immi-
gration, What Shall It Be ?" is one that is
now commanding much attention, not only
in Florida, but throughout the entire South.
We have recently had several conventions
of representative men on the subject; sel-
dom do we have a gathering or convention
of any kind, agricultural commissioners,
cane growers, turpentine producers, timber
men, saw mill men, railroad men, ticket
agents, traffic managers, farmers, cattle
growers, agriculturists, or horticulturists,
but the subject of immigration "crops out"
in one shape or another.
In fact, the Southern States have agi-
tate this question of immigration-foreign
immigration-to a very considerable ex-
tent during the past few years, much has
been said upon the subject, numerous plans
have been proposed to turn the tide of
foreign immigration from the West to the
South. The establishment of direct lines
of immigrant ships, from Southern ports
to Europe, with agents of the Southern
States established in foreign countries, to
secure immigrants, is probably the most
popular plan suggested. To avoid the con-
tract labor laws, the States are asked to
do what the citizen (or corporation) is pro-
hibited from doing, and also to tax the
people of the State to secure cheaper labor
to compete with the working men of the
Florida, I am glad to say, has not be-
come hysterical or anxious in this matter.
She has displayed no great haste to re-
ceive the influx of foreign immigrants-
Japanese, Italians or Chinamen, so ar-
dently desired and earnestly advocated by
some of our sister States-urged on by
land syndicates-mining and manufactur-
ing corporations, desiring to secure cheaper
and more servile labor, than is now obtain-
able in the South outside the cities.
While the phenomenal development of
the South during the past decade, along all
lines of industry, agriculture, mining, man-
ufacture and transportation, has created
a large demand for labor, and has largely
increased the wages of our working people,
it is questionable if it be for the best in-
terests of the South, and particularly of
Florida ,to encourage foreign immigration.
The South is now the only distinctly
American section of the Union, where the
traditions, habits, prejudices, virtues and
vices, courage chivalry, independence and
love of freedom, so characteristic of the
early settler or pioneer, can he found in its
purity; where the true American charac-
ter, begat by the "pioneer," "Puritan" and
"cavalier" can still be found. The des-
cendants of those adventurous men and
women, who at their own cost of depriva-
tion and hardship, established the original
thirteen colonies on the Atlantic seaboard:
who first occupied the land, drove back the
Indian. threw off the yoke of the old coun-
try, with its limitations, political and relig-
ions. to establish a republic of free men,
where liberty in its truest sense should
True American Type.
The true American type-we certainly
have such a type-is now found principally
south of "Mason and Dixon's line," in
the South Atlantic and Gulf States, andI
is most strongly marked in tlhe rural dis-
tricts of the cotton growing States. par-
ticularly in Florida, where most of our
people can trace their lineage directly to
the founders of the Republic, with little,
if any, admixture of foreign blood-de-
scendants of those grand old pioneers--
rugged, capable, stubborn, courageous and
honest, who, lone handed and by mere
force of character, conquered the wilder-
ness as an heritage for their children and
their children's children.
The descendants of whom fought the
bloodiest war of modern times, to pre-
serve the constitutional liberties of the Re
public founded by their fathers. Those
fathers, who by their sacrifices, made it
possible for the foreign immigrants to flock
to thle States--tle North and West-af-
ter thle establishment of religious and po-
litical liberty by our revolutionary ances-
Florida lias had a large increase of popu-
lation during the past fifteen years; she
Ihas increased from 391,000 to 620,000-a
little more than 58 per cent-from 1890 to
1900 she increased 35 per cent (391,000 to
528,000). TIle State's census, taken last
year, now being completed, will show a
greater proportionate increase.
Florida's Great Gain.
Florida gained a larger percentage of
population than any other Atlantic State
during the last United States census period,
namely, 35 per cent. She exceeded the
average of all the groups of States. That
is, the North Atlantic group, 20.90 per
cent.; the South Atlantic, 17.90 per cent.;
the North Central, 17.50 per cent.; the
South Central, 26.10 per cent., and the
Western division, 31.90 per cent.
Her percentage of increase in popula-
tion was exceeded only Iby Arizona, Ida-
hoI, Indian Territory, Montana, North Da-
kota, Oklahoma, Texas, Washington and
Wyoming, from 1890 to 1900, while the in-
dications are that her increase for the
present decade will be far greater in pro-
The census of 1900 shaws Florida's total
population as 528,542; of native born, 504,-
710; foreign born, 23,823; percentage of
native Iorn, 95.5; per centage of foreign
born, 4.5. Our State census of 1905 will
show a total of 620,000 approximately.
Where They Came From.
The most remarkable feature of Florida's
population is the very large percentage
of native born Americans; particularly
natives of the Southeastern States-no-
tably from the States of Georgia, South
Carolina. Alabama and North Carolina.
In 1900, we find Florida born inhabitants
342,818; born in Georgia, 57,692; born in
South Carolina, 26.798; born in Alabama,
24,721; born in North Carolina, 23,339;
born in New York, 4,465; born in Virginia
3.754; born in Ohio, 2,721; born in Ten-
nessee, 2.445; born in Illinois. 2,176; born
in Mississippi. 2,102; lorn in Pennsylvania.
1,8S43; born in Massachusetts, 1,402; born
in Louisiana, 1,357.
All tihe other States and Territories are
represented in Florida's population, though
the above list embraces all States that
have 1.000 or more representatives in our
Greatest Proportionate Increase.
Wlh:t I desire particularly to empha-
size is that Florida has had a greater pro-
portionate increase in population than any
,tholir State. except the few Northwestern
States tmenttitotld previously, that have
b)etn filled uip iby foreign emigrants, ex-
loiteid iby thle railroads and immigrant
slips. for simply !!l bsincss reasons." The
"foreign iontiigrant"' is exploited by the
";'nli.iigrant slhip" and railroad like any
other colnllmoditv: lumber, merchandise.
Ieef tor lIpik. cattle or hogs. And were it
not for tli. laws t ptrohlibiting individuals
ir t',rltoroations itilporting contract labor.
thle question of foreign immigration would
be solved at once by the importation of
millions of coolies-not Chinamen, Japa-
nese or Malays necessarily, but millions
of "Hedemptioners," from all parts of Eu-
rope, who would be sold for a term of
years to those desiring labor, miners, man-
ufacturers, planters, sawmills and turpen-
tine operators, for simply enough to pay
their passage and a profit to the trans-
portation lines, as was done in the early
days of the last century.
Another remarkable feature of Florida's
population-not only the great preponder-
ance of American born citizens, is the great
number of native born children; a popu-
lation of 5-28,000 in 1900 shows 270,293
children, or youths less than twenty; 197,-
600 of school :age, and 72,693 less tlian
four years old, more than half of our
population. Such facts are potent argu-
ments against foreign immigrants, par-
ticularly when we know that thousands of
our best American citizens are now seek-
ing lhomtes in tlie State. That this domes-
tic immigration is rapidly increasing is
patent to any one who is noting tite
rapidly filling up of the whole State. I
think the State census of 1905 will sur-
prise manlly of our people, when the in-
crease in population is noted, particularly
the natural increase. Race suicide can by
no means be charged against Florida, where
over one-half the population are school
children, or younger.
That Florida needs, or can comfortably
care for more people, is true; that she is
obtaining tlhem more rapidly than any
otlhre Atlantic State is also true; that by
naturla increase, anld Iby American immi-
gration-men and women from the South-
eastern States particularly, she is rapidly
filling up tlie vacant places is also true.
Little Vacant Land.
Speaking of vacalint lands, United States
and State lands, 1 desire to call your at-
tention to tihe fact that there is compara-
t;vely little vacant land, State or United
States, remaining. The Sate has little
left, no homestead lands at all, and has
claims against what remains unallotted
of some four millions of acres more than
site has to meet the claims with.
United States liomesleads are being rap-
idly exhausted. Most of the desirable
homesteads are now occupied. The recent
"stone and timber acts" are rapidly ab-
sorling thle remainder of the United States
lands Ninety per cent of the public do-
mnain has passed into the possession of in-
dividuals, syndicates and corporations dur-
ing tite past twenty years. Not only in
this. but in other States.
Though Florida hlad probably a greater
acreage of State lands titan any other
State, except Texas, some twenty-seven
million acres, more or less, practically five
sevenths of all thle Innd in the State--
less tha:in twenty-live years ago, she today
is practic-ally Iankrlupt in Iher landed pos-
sessions. anld has claims against her for
millions of acres more than slie has to
imeet thle claims with.
Homesteads are Scarce.
tA a recent convention held in tite south-
ern part of the State. the statement was
made by several gentlemen, men well in-
formed and familiar with conditions, that
one of the Iprincipal reasons why young
men were fhocking to thle cities, was that
lands for hlonmes could not be purchased.
Thlis was not denied. t hough repeated by
several imembelrs. and in tIhe presence of
several representatives of the larger land

American Immigrants Wanted.
Such men as were recently alluded to
by .Judge Emory Speer-in charging a jury
in a noted criminal case, that has com-
imanded international attention during the
past seven years. In charging, the Judge
said. "I am told that it has been cynically
said by a famous New Yorker that no man
t he lhas a million dollars can be convicted
of -rine in America. The verdict of this
jury of plain, clear-sighted, honest Ameri-
cans., Ios falsified such pessimism. Of that
jury it may be said, that there is perhaps
not a man who cannot trace his ancestry
to a patriot of the Revolution which es-
tablished American Independence. It is
true. as I have often declared, that to the

Restrict Foreign Immigration.
While our public domain has to a large
ext:.nt disappeared, foreign immigration
lthas increased until it has attracted the
serious attention of thoughtful Americans.
I iquote a recent editorial from the Miami
Metropolis, one of the most conservative
,of our Florida newspapers:
"Foreign immigrants are pouring into
Eas-tern ports in such large numbers the
Department of Labor and Commerce has
become apprehensive and has determined
to more strictly enforce the regulations for
the restriction of immigration.
"This is a country of vast territory, and
its assimilative powers are very great, but
there should lie some limit to the influx of
foreigners and the crowding of our cities
with a population which seriously adds to
the gravity of problems that are pressing
more and more for solution. The stream
otf foreigners is not sulliciently distributed.
Too few beconmi soil tillers and producers.
It can be easily understood why this
country is so. attractive to the poor of over-
crowded Europe, and quick and cheap
tr-ansportation makes it comparatively
easy for them to seek homes. In 1900
there wvre 10.4GO.000 people of foreign
Ibirth in this country, and over 21,000,000
born iof foreign parentage. About thirty-
five per cetnt of the total population is
wholly or partially of foreign parentage.

four per cent is resitlent in tlhie North, and

IMPROVEMENTS AT MIAMI.
Tiii-es-Union Bureau, Miami, May 1.-
The' Florida East Coast Hotel System,
which for the past several months has had
a large force of mien at work on its new
water system, will complete the work in
the next few weeks. This will give Miami
one of tlte most complete water systems
of any city in the State. Four large artes-
iin wells were sunk at the old golf grounds
which give a daily tlow of 5,000,000 gallons
of pure water. These wells empty, or will
as soon at completed, into a large reser-
voir, which is now under construction. The
water is conveyed to Miami by gravity
thioiugh a twenty-seven inch pipe, where
it empties into another storage reservoir
and is taken from there by powerful pumps
to standpile, or in case of fire, by direct
iprssure. The' supply is ample for a much
larger city than Miami, but the company
lhaI learned the lesson that Miami is mak-
ing a most rapid growth and they are mak-
ing ample preparations to meet the in-
creasing demand. Recently the water ser-
vice has been extended to the south side
of ihe Mliami river at a very heavy ex-
pense. They are also extending their pipe
lines through Riverside and colored town
has also been piped. Wherever there is a
lemandl for water, the Hotel Company
stand ready to furnish it, regardless of
cost. as they have the highest interest of
tli' citv at heart. Ini this connection it
van also lie said, that wherever in the city
theIre is a demand for electric lights, the
Ilotel company y stand ready to furnish the

,f tlie city is now well supplied, not only
with water and lights, but the city has
extended its sewer system there. The Ho-

its electric light wires a distance of two

lowing the line of the rock road. This
will lie a great convenience to the people
living in that suburb. During the next
vyear there are several fine residences to

The Colourman's Journal of London is
still crying against tlhe prices of spirits

rope to bring about the use of sulbstitutes.
The ('oloirmian's .Journal, however, does not

fellow who uses spirits for mixing paints
and for other purposes and there is but
little surprise at the course it has pursued
-ever since the prodlicers commenced to ,el
what their product is worth.
The naval stores inspection bill, which
\\as introduced in the Mississippi legisla-
ture at its recent session, did not pass
that body, owing to the lateness of its
introduction, and to the fact that the
Legislature was rushed with work up to
the last moment and did not get the time
to reach that bill. Mr. C. B. Townsend
will introduce the same bill, with some
modifications, in the Louisiana Legislature
at its approaching session, and thinks the
chances are excellent for its passage in
Ioui,'alna. Mr. Townsend is acting for
the Turpentine Operators' Association in
handling this legislative matter The bill
is similar in many respects to the bill
ipa.ed in Florida and Georgia, with some
rather radical differences, put in mainly
to conform with the different conditions in
that section. Record readers are familiar

NAVAL STORES SEASON.
.\ friend of the Record, writing from
N'ew Orleans. speaking of naval stores con-
diitions west of the Alabama river, has the
following to say:
'Tlie naval stores season is very back-
ward. between two and three weeks at
hIast. The labor conditions are worse than
last year. and, from what I can learn,
there is no hope of an increase in the crop
of 190) over that of 1905. Probabilities
are for small decrease. Consumptive de-

lines. Fortunately there is always a curb

called upon to kill a great many bills of

Annual Address of President McCarty to the
Florida State Horticultural Society,
The annual address of President C. T.
McCarty, of the Florida State Horticul-
tural Society, was a careful review of the
horticultural interests of Florida for the
past year and some excellent advice for
the future. The address follows:
What was easily the principal feature
of the opening program of the nineteenth
annual meeting of the Florida State Hor-
ticultural Society, was the annual report
and address of the president, Mr. C, T. Mc-
Carty. of Eldred.
President McCarty briefly reviewed the
history of the society, paying eloquent
tribute to the magnificent work that had
been done by his predecessors in office.
Then he ook up the work of the present
and the future, pointing out the new prob-
lems that are constantly arising, and
dwelling upon the necessity of carefully
considering them and approaching their
solution as an organized body. The ad-
dress. which is filled with valuable thoughts
anl suggestions, is herewith printed in
Members of the Florida State Horticul-
tural Society, Ladies and Gentlemen:
This audience will forgive me while T
indulge in some retrospection. It is worth
while sometimes to lift the veil of the pi;st
and behold the achievements of the then
actors. That picture reveals to us lessons
which suggest progress, hope and advance-
ment. At th" outset of this address, it is
well for m. to take my bearings and to see
what is the duty I have assigned myself;
to see and to study the standards that
have been set for me in he similar efforts
of the past; to study the men and the
times that have produced the annual ad-
dresses of the past eighteen years.
"thur society came forth almost full-
fledged from its birth. In response to tihe
demands of the times, it immediately took
its place among the great horticultural so-
cieties of he age. Fortunately, it had as
its first president one of those rugged, fear-
less and intrepid characters that were
transplanted decades ago, from the great
prairies of the Northwest to the tropical
and sub-tropical conditions of our State.
With the accumulated wisdom and ex-
perience of a life time, he led the van in
the early years of the society's history,
and led it with unvarying satisfaction and
"In its first decade it had become so
prominent that it received and entertained
with success some of the foremost scien-
tists of this and other lands. The energy
and persistence. the skill and faith, the
merit and the accomplishment of its first
president. Dudley W. Adams. are now
matters of history. After all it is acts,
not words. that count in the life impres-
sion one leaves upon his age and genera-
tion. Judged by this standard, what a
splendid life was his.
"It is my duty as well as my pleasure,
to put on record the high appreciation this
society feels tolay for its first president
after he has for well nigh a decade felt
upon his face the breath of the eternal

Society Has Wider Scope.
"The original scope of our society being
much narrower than its present one cur-
tailed the range of topics considered at our
meetings to a very narrow margin. The
original thought of the founders of this
society was to make it apply almost ex-
clusively to orange growing, to citrus fruits
and their allied subjects.
"As the years have come and gone, its
scope has been widened, so that it now
covers not only semi-tropical but also
tropical fruits, vegetables and many of the
fruits of our temperate zone. This enlarge-
ment of its sphere has injected into it new
relations and new problems for annual
consideration Let us briefly discuss a
few of the important items worthy of
Age of Organization.
"This is an age of organization, co-ope-
ration and consolidation.. It is not suffici-
ent that the horticulturist of today knows
how to produce the fruits and the prod-
nects of the soil. but that he knows as well
how to successfully transport, distribute
and market them.
"Perhaps the largest field for present and
future investigation is the one covering the
problem of marketing. This problem in-
volves the element of business experience
and study of the relations of the cost of
productoi nand transportation to the mar-
ket valeu of our products: the study of
the laws of supply and demand as ap-
plied to each particular product: a study
of the value of organization in the secur-
ing of reasonable and satisfactory rates
of transportation: of the proper commis-
sions to be paid our selling agents, and the
proper distribution of the crop so as to
prevent a surplus in one portion of the
country and deficiency in another.
"Were there no such thing as organized
effort among those whose financial inter-
ests are opposed to ours. there should be
no necessity for organization on our part.
The value of farmers' nad fruit growers'
organizations is in direct proportion to the
tenacity with which they adhere to them
and the vigor .with which they enforce the
principles involved. I do not deem it nec-
essary to go into arguments Supporting

tions in each of our principal industries.

SNAILS AS A REMEDY FOR WHITE
What promises to rank among the most
valuable points brought out during tlhe
nineteenth annual meeting of the Florida
State Horticultural Society was the dem-
onstration by Mr. F. D. Waite, of Manatee,
that nature has provided a remedy for the
ravages of the dreaded white fly.
The white fly and its effects are so well
known to the growers of citrus fruits
that there is no need for discussing it,
especially in Florida. As a pest, it is one
of the most dreaded by horticulturists,
and the knowledge that patient research
and almost limitless experiment has at last
apparently found a remedy that is, to all
appearances, wholly reliable and absolutely
certain, means much to the orange-growers
not only of Florida, but of other orange-
producing States as well.
And that such a remedy has been discox-
ered, there seems to be little, if any, doubt.
The demonstration of Mr. Waite was very
close to being complete and convincing, and
the fact that he is fighting the pest with
a remedy that has apparently been express-
ly provided for this purpose by nature it-
self, adds to its value.
The question of the white fly and the
means of fighting it was brought up by
the report of the standing committee on
citrus fruits, a committee composed of
Messrs. L. B. Skinner of Dunedin; E. L.
Brady of Titusville, and L. B .Knox, of
The greater portion of the report was
devoted to the discussion of the White Fly,
not only because of the grave importance
of this subject to every Florida horticultor.
but because, since the last meeting of the
Society, there have been innumerable re-
quests made for literature on the subject
and for advices concerning the best method
of treating the insect and its ravages.
The committee went into the matter in
detail, reviewing the history of the fight
waged against this pest, and summing up
ably and forcefully the present status of
the contest, telling of the experiences of
orange-growers in different parts of the
State, with the different remedies that
have been suggested.
Following the detailed report came one
of the most interesting and timely dis-
cussions that has been heard at a meet-
ing of the Society in some time, Mr. F. D.
Waite, of Manatee, Mr. Arthur H. Brown
of Buena-Vista and Mr. F. G. Sampson of
Boardman, being among the leaders in the
It was during the discussion that Mr.
Waite demonstrated that he had seemingly
discovered a remedy for the ravages of
this pest. but in order to understand the
full effect of it. some brief idea must be
given of the white fly and the nature of
the damage it does.
The name of this insect pest was chosen
because it so fitly described its appearance
and thus served to instantly call to mind
the pest itself, when it was desired to refer
It attacks all citrus fruits, crawling over
the leaves and over the fruit as well. The
dalmate done, however, is not by eating
of c'ther the leaf or the fruit, but because
the insect deposits, as it crawls along, a
thick, heavy, black mould, eventually cov-
eriiig looth leaf and plant.
The effect is readily discernible. This
heavy,. lack mould shuts up the pores of
Ibth fruit and leaf and the effect on the
pIlant is exaetly similar to what would
ui-1-r should a heavy. impenetrable coat-
ing lhe smearied over the lungs of a human
loI'nu. The growth is stunted and almost
infinite labor is necessary to remove the
Then, too. even if no actual damage is
done, the market valeu of the orange is
lowered, as the ugly black blotches de-
stroy the attractiveness of its appearance
and dealers do not find as ready a retail
sale as if the effects were not there.
This means that the orange-grower be-
fore shipping the product of his groves
to the market must, at additional cost and
lalor and time, wash the fruit, and even
then his labors, in many, many, instances
are not entirely successful, and some
blotches will remain. Every cent added
to the cost of preparing the fruit for mar-
ket. deducts from the profits, and, if the
actual statistics were obtained, the cost
of the pest would probably be astonishing-
For a long time horticulturists have
been waging a relentless war against this
insect pest, but their efforts heretofore
have. in too many instances, met with
only indifferent success. tl is for this rea-
son that the white fly is so dreaded by
horticulturists and it is for this cause
that it is generally referred to as one of
the worst, if not the very worst, of the
orange growers' troubles.
But Mr. Waite has finally discovered a
rem*dly. His demonstration was complete
in every particular and convinced every
one in the large audience of its great
merits. Then, too, it is the first time that
it lha been presented to any similar or-
ganization and though the first credit goes
to Mr. Waite, great credit is also reflected
upon the Florida State Horticultural So-
Mr. Waitz. is an extensive orange grower,
living in Manatee, and while at work about
his orange groves lie one (lay noticed that
a certain variety of snail. quite common on
the lianiunck in his home county, was fol-
lowing the track of the white fly and de-
vouring this black mould that the former
insect had deposited on the oranges and the
leaves of the orange tree.
This at once led him to make further
investigation and experiments. More snails
of the same variety were secured and
placed on trees where the ravages of the
l- were most in evidence. The cffct was
always thi same. the snails thoroughly
cleaning both the leaves and the fruit and
leaving no trace either of the black, heavy
mouldl. or of the small eggs that later
hatch out into White Flies that, in turn,
continuee the ravages of the parent fly.
Mr. Waite. in order to completely show-
to all the work of which these snails are
capable, brought with him to the meet-
ing a large box. in which he had placed a
numblsr of the snails, and in another box
lie carried many orange leaves thickly cov-
ered with the black mould.
l)Drin gthe morning the snails had been
industriously at work upon the mould and
several of thle leaves had been thoroughly
cleaned, not one little trace of either the
mould or th small yellow eggs remaining.
O(n other leaves the snails were still at
work and the members of the Society

in those letters was that of "State Aid" in

New York, May 4.-R. G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly lReview of Trade tomorrow will
say: The violent decline in prices of se-
ecurities is no criterion of business condi-
tions. Railway earnings have continued to
surpass those of the corresponding period
in any previous year, the gain of April be-
ing 9.3 per cent. over the same month of
190l. ainl other standards of measurement
make Iqually gratifying exhibits. Liabil-
itie, of failures last month showed a de-
(l'ei.se If overcrease of over 40 per cent. in
Iiiinufaiturinig and 12 per cent in trading
branches of business as compared with
the previous year. The only drawbacks re-
garding the future are the labor contro-
versies and the stringency in the money
market, neither of which may prove of
nmire tlhan temporary duration. Manufac-
turing Iplats report little idle machinery.

TRADE IS REPORTED GOOD.
Wholesalers State that it is Ahead of Last
Year for April.
The wholesalers of Jacksonville state
that their trade this spring is better than
it was last year and that the trade for the
month of April was ahead of the trade for
the corresponding month last year.
The indications are good for the summer,
since reports from all sections of the State
are to the effect that this is to be a most
successful year for the growers of vege-
Growing Tobacco in Gadsden County.
Gadsden county farmers are just begin-
ning to plant that crop of tobacco which
for the past several months they have been
busy selling to the packers. All is now
sold, and there appears no good reason for
delaying the planting longer. When the
excellent quality of this tobacco is taken
into consideration, as well as the ready
foreign market for it, the packers figure
they are taking very few chances. The
farmers figure they are taking none.-

This Was Banner Strawberry Year.
The experienced strawberry growers of
the county will plant the same acreage
this year as they did last, notwithstand-
ing the fact that the season just past has
been one of the most successful in the
history of the county. The growers who
have planted strawberries for years, plant
the same number of acres each season.
They never overdo the thing on the
strengthof a very flattering season. \\'
trust that our farmers will give straw-
berry growing a trial and will find it profit-
able enough to continue.-Lake Butler
Some Big Onions for St. Johns.
Mr. J. C'. Appler brought to the Record
office this morning a sample of the Ber-
muda onions grown on his place at Mill
Creek. Four onions weigh six and one-half

Bermuda and the other two are crystal
wax variety. They are as fine specimens
as have ever been shown here.-St. Augus-
The Blackberry Entices the Negro.
The blackberry season is coming on apace
and for the time being the farmers are
living insuspense, wondering if it will be
possible to hold the laboring class over
until after nature's great commissary has
been exhausted. aWtermelons and black-
berries work great disadvantages to the
farmers. It means free rations, and free
rations generally mean no work.-Quincy

As a change from the tin-can diet which

Coal Strike at Live Oak.
It is not often that a coal strige reaches
Live Oak, for there is no coal to mine, but
yesterday the two negroes who pass coal
at the Seaboard's chute in the western part
of the city, went out on a strike for more
pay, less hours, less work, more sleep, bet-
ter grub, and numerous things, and they
are still out. It is not thought, however
that traffic on the line will be suspended
on account of the strike, or that troops
will be called out to quiet the strikers, o0
that the matter will be referred to a board
of arbitrators for adustment.-Live Oak
AMONG THE FLORIDA FARMS.
The Florida farmer who has a good field
of corn on hammock land this season i

it will be the biggest crop per acre fo
many years.-Tampa Times.

recently purchased by the parties inter-
ested, which is 105x140 feet.
On this lot a three-story brick well
constructed factory will be erected which
will be up-to-date in every respect, and
will cost about $15,000. The factory will
be convenient to all railway facilities and
to all obbing houses and steamship lines.
It is the intention of the Jacksonville
Cracker Works to manufacture a class of
goods of a quality inferior to none. Tlhe
latest model machinery will be installed
in the new building.
Work on the new factory will be com-
menced on or before June 15, and it is
expected by parties interested that the
factory will be in operation within three
months or as soon thereafter as possible.
The goods to be manufactured at the
Jacksonville Cracker Works will be various
kinds from the cheapest to the very best,
to be packed in packages, boxes and tins.
The factory will employ between sixty
and eighty men, women and boys, and the
pay-roll each week will be very large.
Several members of the \\1rolesale Gro-
cers' Association are interested in this fac-
tory together with H. S. McCallum, presi-
dent of the Suwannee Bank of White
Springs, Fla., and the following gentlemen
from Riclhmond, Va.: Carlton McCarthy,
Mayor of Richmond; O. A. Hawkins, com-
ilissioner of revenue, of Richmond; W. S.
Rhodes. of the firm of Rhodes & Miller;
W. C. Montgomery, a prominent contrac-
tor; A. Trevett. of the Virginia Hot Springs
Co.: A. A. Booth. of the C. & O. Railway;
I. I). Walford, of the Virginia Passenger
& Power Co.
This factory to be operated in Jackson-
ville. means much for the city, not only
fro mtlhe fact that it brings money to the
city. but it will advertise Jacksonville ex-
tensively from one end of the United
States to the other. It will give employ-
ment to a large force of laborers and to
a large clerical force.
The output of money by this factory
will greatly benefit nearly every citizen
and business man of Jacksonville.
