V 01. IMH The naval stores situation is becoming
interesting, to say the least. Mr. Shotter,
through his organ, the Naval Stores Re-
view, it seems has begun a campaign to
depress prices-not a new trick with Mr.
Shotter. Jacksonville has declared an
44I open market. The labor situation is no
S| child's-play. On the whole, it looks like
-li' 9 a time when every person who is inter-

Statements of the Savannah News About Jacksonville's Open Market


Proven to be False,


Ever since Jacksonville declared itself as
an open market for naval store-, Savannah
has been busy in a general campaign in
the interest of diverting shipments to that
point. Determined that Savannah shall
be regarded as the market of the naval
Stores industry and regardless of the truth
of its assertions, the Savannah News has
been busy during the past two weeks in
presenting statements calculated to de-
ceive the operators. These statements have
been wrong in nearly every particular.
They have been given with the view of
strengthening the same crowd at Savannah
which wa responsible for the low prices of
naval stores up to the time that the opera-
tors got together and decreed that they
were henceforth to receive a fair price for
their product.
This same element, using the argument
that Jacksonville is the cause of it all,
is seeking to lower and is lowering the
price of spirits, in order to maintain the
prestige which it has won and to control
absolutely and without justice the sale of
naval stores Those who have studied the
situation believe that the Savannah faction
is trying to keep the prices down and are
beating them down daily. The operators
are not blind. They have a sufficient un-
derstanding of the situation to know from
the developments of the past few days
that the Savannah contingent have not the
interest of the operators in view and that
they are beating down the price of naval
stores with a view of keeping everything
at Savannah and controlling the prices of
spirits and rosin. The factors and ex-
porters of Jacksonville have been working
on the "square deal" plan since this was
declared to be an open market. There ha.
not been the slightest inclination to yi,.ld
to the dictates of Savannah, but they have
appreciated the fact that the buyers were
still doing their heavy buying in the latter
place and that Jacksonville was conse-


,quently at a disadvantage. But there is thors of the statements made as to deep No Fight Against Savannah.

Shotter's Raid Upon the Market Through


Gamble, His Henchman,


New Orleans, May 22, 1906.
Mr. J. A. Hollomon, Editor Industrial Rec-
ord, Jacksonville, Fla.:
S Dear Sir-I was not surprised but rather
anticipated the fierce attack on the naval
stores business in last week's Naval Stores
Review.
The repudiation of the Naval Stores Ex-
port Company's contract with the export-
ers on April 10th was of course the proper
action, but the writer anticipated reprisals
from the exporters (one in particular) at
the earliest opportunity. Again, the dec-
laration at Jacksonville a few days ago for
an "open market" came also as a surprise,
and, I think, has operated to "stir the
animals up." To be frank, I think a mis-


take was made in announcing an open mar-
et for Jacksonville without being prepared
to sustain quotations on a par with Savan-
nah. The competition between the two ports
is too keen for Savannah to miss using
every argument and expedient to the detri-
ment of Jacksonville. Again, Jacksonville
should not, under any circumstances, have
dumped its receipts from day to day on the
Savannah market. This has done consid-
erable harm. The big exporters have taken
advantage of the opportunity and have
hammered the market down seriously. Two
weeks ago they did not expect any such
favorable chance. In regard to the article
in the Review, the writer hopes that you
will answer this article vigorously in your


next issue. The producers and your pa-
trons generally have a right to expect you
to come forward and answer this iniquitous
article. You can deny this "stuff' in toto.
First: The cut of boxes last winter was
NOT as large as the cut of last year, and
this is well known. Second: The season
this year is fully three weeks later than
last year, which means (practically) the
loss of a dipping. This cannot be made
up during the season. Third: The labor
situation from the Alabama River to Tex-
as was never worse and the writer hears
from every direction of the most serious
deficiency in the labor supply, and the de-
moralization is such as threatens the ex-
istence of the industry. Fourth: The
weather cuts no figure in the situation as
it has been no better or worse than usual.
Fifth: The repudiation of the 52c mini-
mum price agreement was a wise action
on the part of the stockholders of the Na-


val Stores Export Co. As a matter of
fact the agreement reftrred to was abso-
lutely illegal and should not have been
enterer into in December. A 52e price for
turpentine would bankrupt every producer
in the business under present conditions.
Sixth: The consumers and dealers of the
world have got ADJ;USTED to 60 cts. (and
upwards) for turpentine and $4.00 (and
upwards) for rosin, and every true friend
of the industry should resent this vicious
attempt to set back the business and in
the interest of cold-blooded speculation re-
duce the producers from prosperity to
bankruptcy.
The fine Italian hand of Mr. S. P. Shot-
ter sticks out prominently in the recent
"raid" on the market and in this outra-
geous article in the Naval Stores Review,
written, no doubt, by his willing tool and
henchman, Mr. Thomas Gamble, Jr.
VETERAN.

BIG DEAL IN IluxPElKllm LANDS.

J. E. Hardee of Madison, Pays $3o000 for
5,5oo Acres in Lafayette County.
Starke, May 24.-A turpentine and tim-
ber deal of some importance was consum-
mated here recently, when J. E. Hardee,
one of Madison's most progressive young
business men, bought the Gaulden, Shaw
& Co. property in Lafayette county. It is
said that it is one of the finest pieces of
timbered lands in the State. There were
about 5,500 acres included in the trade, and
Lithe price was upwards of $30,000. Col. D.
M. Gornto, of Starke, a leading and enter-
prising lawyer, brought the parties to-
gether and made the deal..
The Starke Ice Company is running its
plant on full time, and is having no trouble
in placing its output at present. The bus-
ines of this enterprise is increasing.
With a new bank, sawmill, ice factory,
laundry and the various other enterprises
incident to a live town, Starke is forging
ahead and is destined to become one of the
best towns in Middle Florida.

Attacked by a Negro
Mr. J. H. Scott, superintendent Carra-
belle Naval Stores Company at Smith
Creek, had a disagreement with a strange
negro that had only been working for a
few days. Saturday night Mr. Scott paid
him off and discharged him and ordered
him to leave the place. Later the negro
returned with his wife to the commissary
and asked Mr. Scott if he could see him a
minute. Just as Mr. Scott stepped out of
the commissary the negro commenced to
shoot with a pistol, the bullets missing
tne mark. Mr. Scott reciprocated and ten
or a dozen shots were exchanged, but none
of them took effect. As soon as Mr.
Scott's pistol was empty, he stepped back
in the commissary for a shot gun. A hasty
exit was made by the negro and every-
thing is serene at Smith Creek once more.

RAILROAD COMMISSION REPORT
Shows That All Florida Roads Greatly In-
creased their Business.
The ninth annual report of the Railroad
Commissioners for the State of Florida
has just been issued.
The commission calls the attention of
the Governor, to whom the report is made.
to the great prosperity of the railroads in
this State during the past year, conse-
quent upon the general prosperity in the
State.
Every railroad but two in the State
shows handsome net earnings over operat-
ing expenses. and every road but two of
those showingg a surplus shows a net in-
crease in earnings over the previous year.
While the East Coast Railway Company
shows a gain in gross earnings from ope-
ration of $6i.2)90.79 over the previous year.
the operating expenses were increased by
$10i.522.53. which showed that the road
had less net earnings for last year than
for the previous year.
Several other roads show a like increase
in the operating expenses.
The commission reports that during the


year ending March 1. 1906. they have hand-
led 1864 cases for loss and damage. They
have decided a number of rate cases and
have collected a number of fines imposed
for violation of the regulations of the
commission.
The expenses of the commission for the
year were $12,949.06.
The report is an interesting one and
shows that the commission has transacted
a large amount of business, and that it has
discharged thie duties imposed upon it in
a creditable manner.
SOUTHERN STATES NAVAL STORES

This company entered the factorage field
at Savannah last season. It is comprised
of some of the largest and most influential
of Georgia producers, who Iesides their
extensive interests in naval stores are well
known in banking and other circles.
The company is already handling a large
business. and under the management of its

There is a great deal of activity in rail-
road building in Florida just now. The in-
dications are that this activity is to in-
crease.

Some of the contentions made by Sa-
vannah against Jacksonville as an open
market are as silly and false as they are
unfair. The statement that Jacksonville
has only fifteen feet of water at high tide
is not only false, but malicious. And
this statement appeared in the Savannah
News, a paper which has always borne the
reputation of being fair.

Compare the conditions existing in Jack-
sonville today with those existing in Sa-
vannah when that city was declared to be
an open market for naval stores and you
will see the advantage that this city has
over its rival. Jacksonville has all the
advantages and many of them were not
possessed by Savannah when that city was
declared to be an open market.

The labor problem will not down. All
attempts to settle it appear to be of no
avail. Mr. Chase, of :ainesville. claims
that he has good service from the Chinese
laborers whom he has brought from tlhe
Pacific coast. This may be so, but at the
same time there are a great many who
believe that the Chinese will never con-
form to the conditions of the South.

Italian labor has been declared to Ist im-
practical by the sawmill men. If they will
not do at the mills, then they will not do
on the naval stores farms. Italians are not
a desirable class to have on account of
their manifest spirit to interfere with the
methods employed by those who hire them.
Germans are to be given a test. and some
are to try the Finns. It may be that some
of those who are experimenting with the
different nationalities for labor may hit on
the right sort before many years have
rolled by.

TO ERECT MODERN BUILDING.

R. Silsbe, Jr, Secures Contract for the Bird
Flats on West Ashley Street.
1. Silsbe. .Ir., has been awarded the con-
tract by the Messrs. Bird, of St. Nicholas,
to construct a modern three-story flat on
Ashley street, between Main and Laura
streets.
This is to be a handsome brick building
and is estimated to cost $18,000. Prepara-
tions to conmmience the work at once were
made yesterday. Mr. Silsbe says he hopes
to have tile structure completed within
four ilonths. The building will contain
six hIats. which will have every necessary
convenience, and they will have the latest
modern furnishings put into buildings of
thil kind.
The -iructure will be an ornament to
this section of the city and will add much
to the realty values.

GREAT RAILROAD IMPROVEMENT.

All of the Large Compannies Have Been
Enlarging Their Facilities.
All of the great railroad systems which
enter Jacksonville are enlarging their fa-
cilities for handling the business at this
point. The Atlantic Coast Line have been
at work for some time building shops here
and the Seaboard Air Line is actively en-
gaged in the same work.
The Seaboard is to have the largest
shops in this part of their territory in this
city. A large section of land has been ac-
quired and the work of tilling in and put-
ting in side tracks is progressing favorably.
All of this work means a great deal to the
city of Jacksonville and indicates that the
number of men who are to be employed
here at big salaries is to be materially in-
creased.

THE PEACH CROP.

Florida is always First in Fruit and Vege-
tables.
A letter from Candler, Marion County,
Fla., to the Savannah News yesterday
says:
"The first shipments of early peaches
have gone out this week. The first ship-
ment was made by George H .McCullougi,
and went to Atlanta. The second lot was
shipped yesterday to Richmond. They were
of the Jewell variety, which is the earliest.
TIhe fruit is very fine this spring, of good
size and free from tile curcules sting. By
tile first of next week the season will be
on in earnest and the movement of fruit
will be heavy. Some growers have sold
at $1 on the trees; others for $1.50 f. o. b.,
while others will consign, as the markets
are quoted at $3 and $4 this week.
"The Waldos will begin to ripen by June
1st. and the crop of this variety is much
heavier than the Jewells. Prof. J. Y. Mc-
Kinney expects to market from twenty-five
acres of two-year-old trees, 1,000 crates.
The orchards, as a rule, are in excellent
condition, and peach growing here gives
every promise of success.
"The extremely dry weather of the past
two months has caused the oranges and
grapefruit to drop considerably, and this
will shorten an already light crop. The
orange trees have made a good growth
this spring, and are now in fair condition."

RAIN WAS BADLY NEEDED.

It Appears to Have Been General Through-
out the State.
The heavy rains which have fallen
throughout the State during the present
week have been greatly needed. In the
lower part of the State there had been a
drouth prevailing for a considerable length
of time and tlhe fruit trees as well as the
vegetable crops were needing moisture.
While the extent of the rains will prove
of damage to the luniiber and naval stores
industries. iut I retarding operations to a
slight extent, they 1 ill le of great value
