Great Work of Progress and Development in Suwannee, Taylor
and Lafayette Countieso
A better understanding of her resources,
natural advantages ad opportunities for
those of -mall ieman ha given to Florida
aa active demand for real estate and es-
peilal that part of her lands adapted
to emeral farming.
While a few years ago the growing of
early vegetables for the Northern mar-
kets sad the orange industry were con-
sidere paramount in this State, the sue-
ees of those who saw the opportunities
for general farming in Florida and accept-
ed them, is becoming understood in all
parts of the United Stated and to-day
there is more attention being paid to this
character of soll tilling than to those
special branches of agriculture and horti-
have always brought ready cash. While
depending on cotton for money, they have
raised nearly everything that their fami-
lies consumed and the cash from their cot-
ton crop has been banked.
BRcet Rapi Dvelopment.
Recently there has been a rapid devel-
opment of this section of the State. The
various railroads which operate in Florida
have been viewing with each other in the
extension of their lines through Suwan-
nee, Alachua, Taylor, Lafayette and Mad-
ion counties. The Seaboard Air Line,
the Atlantic Coast Line, the two great
railway systems, have built many miles
of road through the counties named and
new roads have been projected and built.
culture which for years have for Florida The Live Oak, Perry & Gulf has laid its
commanded the attention of the pros- rails through the most desirable of these
General farming has become more of
a factor in the development of this State
amd the farmers who plant and cultivate
with are the staple crops are among
the most prosperous residents of a
wealthy and thrifty State.
The demand for farming lands is grow-
ing, and those seetions of Florida which
an offer the bet inducements for general
crops are developing rapidly. While the
growing of fruits and vegetables has en-
riched certain sections, the two industries
have not thrived to a greater extent than
that of general farming and stock raising.
The general farmer has in Florida been
successful from year to year, gradually
and constantly accumulating wealth and
ehancing the value of his possessions,
building comfortable and valuable homes
and equipping his farm with the best of
modern implements, in the meantime di-
versifying his mrops so as to supply every-
thing he needs for his table, including
the choicest fruits and vegetables. His
money erop is cotton and the very best
quality of sea island cotton nets him a
comfortable profit for his labor and ex-
pensee. For his stock he grows corn, oats,
rye and several other varieties of grain.
He raies his own hogs, makes his own
syrup and sugar and leads a thoroughly
independent life, with a fair bank account
to insure himself against adversity.
While every county in Florida is well
adapted to general farming, that section
of the State lying north of the peninsular
division has recorded the greatest success.
This is, perhaps, in part due to the fact
that the farmers in the northern part of
Florida have devoted their energies to the
one industry, but the fact remains that
they have had the best land in the Slate
with which to operate.
In Suwannee, Columbia, the northern
part of Alachua, Madison, Jeffersn, Tay-
lor and Lafayette counties the farmers
have been exceedingly successful, making
and contributing a large part of the
wealth of the State. They have had the
beat farming lands, the most hiproved
means of marketing ag4 teir ottou crops
lands. With Live Oak, the largest and
most progressive city in the interior of
Florida, as a starting point, the Live Oak,
Perry & Gulf has built through Suwannee,
Taylor and Lafayette counties, tapping
the very best sections of each and extend-
ing its work of development to include
every industry-farming, manufacturing
and building-with a view of making that
part of Florida the wealthiest section of
Develop Their Lands.
Independent of its railroad this com-
pany, known as the Dowling Lumber and
Naval Stores Company, has acquired hun-
dreds of thousands of acres of the very
best and most productive lands in the
State. These lands are being reserved
for settlers, the plan of bringing home-
seekers to Florida being the main con-
In that part of the State where Sea
Island cotton is grown, there is a reason
for the success and prosperity of the
farming element. Sea Island cotton
always sells for a big advance over
what is known as upland cotton
and the prices do not vary, nor are they
influenced by the speculations which con-
trol the cheaper and more common grades.
At Live Oak, the county seat of Suwan-
nee county, the farmers have built one of
the largest cities in the State with Sea
Island cotton. They market their cotton
there and always find a ready sale and
their progressiveness and wealth has been
the one potent factor in i", development
of their section of the State. In the fall
of the year, when the cotton crop is mar-
keted, it is nothing uncommon to see over
a hundred wagonloads of the fleecy staple
awaiting to be weighed and transferred
to the warehouses. All this cotton brings
ready cash. In fact, it is as good as gold
and silver. A farmer with a number of
bales of cotton in his warehouse has just
that much ready cash.
Suwannee's Magnifcent Farms.
Suwannee county is noted for its mag-
nificent farms. The farmers in that coun-
ty are prosperous to a greater degree than
those of any section of the State. Inde-
pendent of growing cotton, they raise
their own stock, grow sugarcane and man-
ufacture their own sugar and syrup, be-
sides making their own pork, rais-
enough corn for themselves and their
stock and in fact supplying everything
but flour for their household. As the
maxim is, "they live at home and board
at the same place."
Last year Suwannee county led all other
counties in the production of Sea Island
cotton and the indications are that the
record will be repeated this year and for
many years to come.
A Growing Tow.
Included in the proposition to dispose
of these lands is Dowling Park, one of
the new, but one of the most thriving
towns in the State. Here is an example
of what Florida can do, when the work of
development is actively under way. Four
months ago there was no sign of a town
there. Today there is a population of
about five hundred people and one of the
largest enterprises in the State for manu-
facturing lumber and with mercantile es-
tablishments doing a large business and
carrying large stocks of goods.
Dowling Park was established by the
men whose name it bears. The Dowlings
saw that the location was a most favor-
able one and when they located the largest
sawmill in that part of the State, they
laid the foundation for a town, the rapid
growth of which has really been a sur-
prise to even themselves.
On the Suwanme River.
The town is located on the banks of the
Suwannee river, on a bluff which extends
over the entire town site, and where the
best climate and health are assured. In
laying out the town the promoters had
in view every consideration for its future
growth, providing eighty-foot streets,
making a systematic survey and leaving
all of the shade trees standing. The
effect of their efforts have been surpris-
ing. The spirit which they displayed when
they decided to make a town of this lo-
cation has spread to include all the resi-
dents and those who have built their
homes there or built places in which they
are engaged in business, have had in view
substantial structures and town. is being
built welL All of the many residents, the
hotels, the places of business and the pub-
lic buildings have been erected with a view
of presenting a pretty appearance and ap-
pealing to the visitor. There are a great
many residences and all of them are a
credit to the place. Even the homes which
have been built by the Dowlings for their
laborers have been built of good lumber
A Prmise of Growth.
Today the city has every promise of
being a city of 2,500 people with a few
years. There are a great many rea-
sons to be advanced for making this claim.
In the first place the saw and planing
mill which the Dowling Lumber and Na-
val Stores Company operates at that place
employs several hundred men. In addition
to this, the shops of the Live Oak, Perry
& Gulf railroad are to be located there
at once and will employ a great many
skilled laborers. A large cotton gin is in
course of building and will gin cotton for
several hundred large farmers who have
their farms in that part of Suwannee
and Lafayette counties. As a railroad
center, Dowling Park is already known.
Several trains meet there daily and con-
nect for various points in the State.
One of the largest wood-working estab-
lishments in the United State, and one
which will employ several hundred men,
is arranging to build a factory there
and will add materially to the population
of the place.
German Families There
Recently there arrived at Dowling Park
fifty German families, who come from the
old country to make this their home.
They have arrived at Dowling Park and
to all appearances are delighted with their
new home. The men are to be employed
at good wages at the mill and the Dowling
Lumber and Naval Stares Company is as-
sisting them in the building of their
A Large Schel uiaing,
The board of public instruction of Su-
wannee county has passed an order for the
erection of a large and handsome school
building and two teachers have already
been engaged to teach. There will be the
ordinary course of education and a high
school course in connection, giving to that
part of Suwannee county every facility
Another movement which has been start-
ed and which is actively under way is
the building of a large church to accom-
modate several denominations and to act
as a kind of union place for worship.
This church edifice will be completed in
the course of a few weeks.
A amemma Asrrt.
One of the most favorable features in
connection with this delightful location
for a city is that it is right at the famous
resort, known throughout the country for
the past several years as Dowling Park.
This park is located just across the river
from the town and is one of the most
charming and ideal health and pleasure
resorts of the United States. The water
is strong sulphur with a boiling spring.
A magnificent park has been laid out
among the pretty cedars, oaks, pine and
hickory trees, along the bluff of the song-
famed Suwannee river, with an excellent
hotel, pavilion, bath houses, pool and bil-
liard rooms and other places for amuse-
ment. In the park there is everything
which nature could contribute for beauty,
recreation and pleasure and the owners
have added more. The bath houses have
been excellently arranged, the banks of
the river have been made attractive, sev-
eral deer have been brought there to at-

tract the attention of the visitor and the
broad verandas of the large hotel of-
fer an ideal place for the lounger, where he
tea enjoy the magnificent climate both
winter aid summer, and where the mag-
nificent view of the old Suwannee and its
timbered banks ofer a rest from the city
life. This resort is patronized largely the
year around and is becoming known as
the most desirable resort of Florida. It
is easy of access to those who live in the
vicinity of Dowling Park. It lies just ae-
cross the river from the new and thriving
little city of Dowling Park and is connect-
ed by a large railroad bridge provided
with a good walk for pedestrians. Dur-
ing the summer trains bring hundreds of
people from all parts of Florida, Georgia
and Alabama to this place and excursions
are frequent. This admirable resort is
of incalculable benefit to the people of
Dowling Park, who visit there during the
evenings and who take special delight in
wandering over the place and taking a
plunge in the large bathing pooL
The Sportsamun Paradise.
Independent of the business and social
advantages of Dowling Park, game abounds
here as nowhere else in this state. If
the sportsman enjoys shooting small
game, he has every opportunity for doing
so without wandering far from home. If
his pleasures are found in angling, he
has the Suwannee river to attract him.
In fact there is everything to offer ad-
vantages of this character to those who
make that part of the state their home
or who spend their vacations there.
A naptha launch, livery teams, hunting
dogs, guns and bathing suits have been pro-
vided for the Suests at the Dowling Park
hotel. In adi ition to this a number of
cottages have been built for those who de-
sire to do light house-keeping, pleasantly
situated within a few rods of the hotel and
along the bank of the Suwannee river.
A PROGRESSIVE COUNTY.
General Farmi Ham Made Suwannee
During the past few years the State of
Florida has experienced a general pros-
perity, extending to all of her varied in-
dustries and enterprises. In every sec-
toin of the State rich returns have follow-
ed the investment of capital and labor, and
today Florida is looked upon as the rich-
est State in the South, compared with her
This prosperity has extended to every
section, but no county in Florida has en-
joyed that prosperity to such a degree as
has Suwannee county, in the northern
part of the State, and a county where gen-
eral farming is the main source of revenhe.
In that county the farmers have devoted
their energies to the iultivation of general
crops and have been making cotton their
great money crop. Their lands are pro-
ductive and they have farmed in a sys-
tematic and improved manner, taking ad-
vantage of the best and most improved
farming implements and making their soil
yield for all that it is capable.
All this is evident from a study of the
recent development and progress in all
lines of trade at Live Oak. That is the
one city of the county. It is the county
seat, the place of marketing, banking and
the center o fwealth. A few years ago
Live Oak was about the fifth town in the
interior of the State as to population.
Today she leads all of the interior cities
of the State by a margin of nearly two
htousand, according to the census of the
State which has just been published and
in manufacturing and buying of cotton she
is so far ahead of all of them as to be
This is attributable in large part to the
magnificent country from which she draws
her wealth. Nowhere in the State are the
farmers as prosperous as they are in Live
Oak. In no section of Florida are they
as enterprising and energetic They have
They have the most comfortable resi-
dences, the best outhouses and the most
improved farms and every year are adding
to their bank account.
The city of Live Oak has been making
a remarkable growth. While this may be
due in a measure to the fact that Live
Oak has been the natural distributing point
for a large section of the State, the fact
remains that it has been the farmers who
have contributed the large part of her
wealth. The city has recently voted bonds
to the extent of $250,000 for street im-
provements and for a sewerage system and
the county of Suwannee has appropriated
more than that amount for the building of
rock roads, the work of which is actively
under way and proceeding as fast as pos-
In no county in Florida has this prog-
ress and enterprise been manifested to a
greater degree than in Suwannee county.
The plan for the building of hard roads
includes roads leading from each extreme
point of Suwannee county and centering
at Live Oak, giving to the county within
the next yar or two sixty miles of the best
roads in the State.
No better evidence of prosperity and
enterprise can be cited than this. It
demonstrates not only Ithe wealth of the
county, but the fact that the county is
populated by a progressive and enterpris-
Live Oak has two of the most substan-
tial banks in the State, with another large
bank just organizing. All these banks
are necessary for the carrying on of the
large business of that county and sections
of other counties, the business of which
has been captured by that place.
Merchants & Miners Have Ample Facil-
Mr. Horace C. Avery, commercial agent
of the Merchants & Miners' Transporta-
tion Company, has received a telegram
from Mr. J. K. Whitney, second vice-presi-
dent and general manager of the company,
saying that there would be no interruption
to the service through the fire which did
such damage to their Savannah Line dock
in Baltimore early Wednesday morning.
The general manager advised that the
company's immense Boston and Providence
piers were ample to accommodate the busi-
ness until the other piers could be rebuilt.
The ships of the Merchants & Miners'
Transportation Conpany will continue to
ply between Savannah and Baltimore as
usual. Mr. Avery, the commercial agent,
reports that the business is exceptionally
good at present, and a large number of
people are taking advantage of the very
low rates offered by the Merchants and
Miners' Transportation Company for the
The freight business of the company is
also holding up well. A large amount of
Florida products are shipped on the steam-
ers of this line, and shippers may rest
assured that the company is fully able
to take care of all business offered.

THE SUWAx RIVER.
The author of that pretty and famous
s1g, "Way Down Upon the Suwannee
Uie," whoever he may have been, had
appreciation for the beauty of nature.
That he had spent days of pleasure along
the banks of this far-famed stream is cer-
Te those who have stood on the bluff
basks of this river, or who have enjoyed a
trip in one of the steamers which ply the
Suwannee can appreciate the sentiment
which led to the writing of this pretty
song. There is not a stream in the coun-
try possessing greater beauty than the
Sawannee river. On either side of the
stream the banks are high and the rivet
winds its way through one of the pret-
tiest section of the United States. Its
waters ae clear and the stream deep for
Oe of its width. Being confined to a
marrow chanel, the Suwannee river is one
of the most rapidly lowing streams in the
United States and carries a tremendous
volume of water to the Gulf of Mexico.
Along its banks there abounds game,
and the fishing anywhere along the river
-is excellent, the best varieties of fresh
water fish abounding to almost a remark-
The timber along the banks of the Su-
wannee river are mostly esdar, oak and
pine, though there are a great many other
varieties. Vast fortunes have been made
from the red cedar, which has been sold
to the big manufacturers of pencils, such
as the Eagle and Faber companies, and
lhas been sent to all parts of the world.
The lands along this stream are fertile
and the climate delightful.
At Dowling Park, the Suwannee makes
-one of its most graceful and one of its
prettiest bends. Gracefully it has select-
ed its way through the rolling country
there and as it winm its way for miles
through that section, making many curves
and beds, it gives every facility for pleas-
re aad recreation, as well as supplying
mnaa of transportation for vast interests.
CAN MAKE EaOUGV COTTON.
Uxbah Spanner Thinka Capital aid Laber
London, June &8-In the course of an in-
terview published in the Daily Chronicle
this morning, Charles Wright Macara,
president of the International Federation
of Master Cotton Spinners, said that while
*e did not underestimate the importance
of cultivation of cotton in the colonies, he
regarded it absurd for statesmen to talk of
smothering speculators with British cotton.
Many years, Mr. Maeara said, must
elapse before any substantial supply can
be obtained from British asurces Much
is possible by the development of the
industry in India, but for the present
Great Britain is mainly dependent on the
Southern States of Amarica, where there
are immense probabilities.
The British commissisa which has just
returned from the Somthern States has
not reported, but Mr. UMeara said he be-
lieved its report wouid be a unanimous
declaration that there is virtually a legiti-
mate field for the e-steision of cotton cul-
tivation in the Ujuited States, the chief
difficulty being to get the requiste kind of
Mr. Macars tlhnks ti, growing of cotton
at 10 cents a pound ought to be remuner-
ative enough to attramt capital, and that
if labor and. empital won!' obtainable there
is little doA t that the Ul tited States might
add midllis of balies ( her present odt-
put. "Until then, it will be our duty,"
Mr. Macara said, "while encouraging the
British cotton growing movement, also to
do what we can to further the systematic
extension of cotton cultivation in the
Southern States, where I am convinced
our chief hope of an adequate supply of
the raw material at present lies."
NHW COURT HOUSE.
Architect's Plans Have Been Accepted at
St. Augustine, June 12.-The building
committee of the board of county commis-
sioners has held two busy sessions today
in consultation with A. E. McClure, of
the firm of McClure & Holmes, of Jack-
sonville, constructing architects for the
new county court home.
The committee, consisting of Chairman
Genovar and Commissioners Colee and
Mahr, met with Mr. McClure, who came
over from Jacksonville with the detailed
plans and specifications for the building.
The commissioners have gone over the
plans very carefully and have accepted
the same wiih a few minor alterations.
The architects, after amending the speci-
fications, will advertise for bids for the
construction of the new court house for
a period of fifteen days, after which the
contract will be awarded and building be-
gin at one.
The commissioners and architects have
used excellent judgment in planning the
new building. It will not only be orna-
mental, but it will be erected with a view
to the convenience of all county officers
for many years to come. It will be of the
Spanish style of architecture and will be
erected on the site occupied by the pres-
ent court house.
The structure will be of light brick, with
red brick and terra cotta trimmings. There
will be two entrances, the main one on
Charlotte street and a side door opening
from Treasury street. From the main
entrance there will be a wide corridor run-
ning through from east to west. The first
office on the left will be occupied by the
county clerk, with spacious vaults adjoin-
ing. The first office on the right will be
that of collector. Then will follow the
offices of judge, sheriff and assessor.
The greater part of the second floor
will be occupied by the court room to
be fifty feet square, to the rear of which
will be located the petit jury rooms. The
balance of the second floor will be used by
the county commissioners and the grand
jury rooms. The entire building will be
fitted out with all modern sanitary im-
provements and will be heated by steam.
It is expected that bids will be awarded
and the work of tearing down the present
structure will begin early in July and the
new court house will be erected and in
use before January 1st. The estimated
cost is between $35,000 and $40,000 not
including fixtures and furniture.
When the building is completed St.
Johns county will boast of one of the finest
court houses in the state and already has
one of the best jails, and these, too, with
little or no indebtedness.
MNelms Bring Good Prices.
Watermelon and cantaloupe buyers have
been plentiful in Oxford for the last few
days, and have purchased many carloads,
paying from $150 to $200 per car for wat-
ermelons. Mr. Nugent, the Ocala canta-
loupe man, has shipped several refrigera-
tor cars of cantaloupes during the last few
days, and will continue shipping this week.

Georgia and Florida Bankers Had Interesting
Joint Session at Atlanta.
The joint session of the Georgia and
Florida Bankers at Atlanta the past week
was one of great importance, not only
to the banking interests of the two States
represented, but to all the interests of the
South, bringing about as it did an ex-
change of ideas and a study of the con-
ditions of the two States.
Everything indicated that Georgia and
Florida are enjoying great prosperity, the
bankers reporting plenty of money in the
till and every industry active and in good
There were various measures of impor-
tance considered, the most important of
which was in the request for a sub-treas-
ury at Atlanta or any other point in Geor-
gia that the government might select. The
bankers took up a number of important
questions which have or may come up
before the legislatures of the two States
or the National Congress.
New ideas were brought out and ques-
tions, with light thrown on them from all
sides, were settled in a manner that the.
bankers believe will be for the best inter-
ests of all concerned.
The address of the Hon. Charles H.
Treat, treasurer of the United States, was
spoken of as above the average. The ad-
dress touched on many questions of vital
interest, and the manner in which the

Social pleasures were many during the
visit of the Florida bankers, and these will
always be remembered with pleasure by
thoae so fortunate as to participate in
them. "It seemed," said one of the bank-

with unalloyed pleasure."
Letter from Alabama.
The Florida Bankers' Association has re-
ceived a letter from the Alabama Bankers'
Association, asking them to meet with
the latter next year in Birmingham. No
action has as yet been taken on the invi-
tation, but, though the invitation is highly
appreciated, it is regarded as probable that
the Florida organization will meet alone
The joint sessions with the Georgia As-
sociation, the first at Atlantic Beach last
year and the second just completed, have
been productive of great go(l, but the
sentiment seems to be somewhat against
always holding joint sessions. Many be-
lieve that breaks in the joint sessions
from time to time, is for the best, and the
Florida Association will probably meet
alone next year.
The next meeting of the Association will
be held at Hotel Continental, Atlantic

THU WBIKLY INDUSTRIAL BRCORD. I
ALCOHOL AS FUEL.
Hery Ford Says Free Aeeel Will Re-
elatismse Irican lustri
Henry Ford, the well known automo-
bile builder, is authority for the statement
that the passage of the bill permitting the
free and unrestricted manufacture of veg-
etable alcohol will work a revolution in
the Amerinn industrial situation. The
most important point made by Mr. Ford,
who has all along been an enthusiastic
supporter and worker in the interests of
the measure, is that the benefits of the
bill will apply not alone to manufacturing
idustriese, but to rural communities as
well In fact, he states that it will prove
a greater boon to the farmer than to the
Paradoxical as it appears, Mr. Ford is
S a even more enthusiastic farmer than he
is an automobile builder. He has a farm
about eight miles from Detroit, where he
has lived for twenty years. He owns sev-
eral hundred head of stock and engages in
agrniults onm a large Male. Here it is
that, surmrouded by cows and horses, be
egua out the moat difficult problems in
hordeas vehicle, and here, too, he retires
from business worries when they come too
During the past three years he has de-
voted an his leisure time, a great deal of
thought and research, not only to the in-
vention of motors which will use alcohol
as fuel, but to the study of the production
of alcohol itself. He now has in course of
preparation an exhaustive article which
will be ready for publication in a few days
in which he will teat of the various uses
to which alcohol can be put on the farm
an dthe many vegetables and grains from
which it may be made, and how.
Mr. Ford is now perfecting a motor-
tractor, which, using alcohol for fuel, may
be used for all manner of farm work, from
hauling the gag-plow, through all the
other operations now performed by horses,
to transporting the produce to market.
The tractor Mr. Ford believes to be the
most practical form of power application
to this kind of work. It will have a speed
of six mile per hournd, with 40 initial
horse-power, geared down to that speed,
will be capable of performing the heaviest
work on the farm.
Here are some interesting facts. Alco-
hol may be made from practically every
specie of vegetable and grain grown on a
farm. Not only this, but in all eases the
original product retains almost its full
market or food value after the alcohol has
been extracted. Corn and other fodder is
quite as valuable for feeding stock after
as before it has been deprived of its alco-
holie properties. Mr. Ford cites the case
of the Hiram Walker distilleries at Walk-
erville, aress the river from Detroit. Five
to six thousand head of stock are fat-
S tened on the corn mash which comes from
the distillery after the alcohol has been
extracted for making the famous Walker
whiskey. When potatoes, beets and simi-
lar vegetables are used for alcohol making,
the residue is as valuable as it originally
was for starch. It will be seen, therefore,
that the actual cost of the alcohol is the
mere cost of extracting it.
Nor is this latter item a serious one.
No immense plant is necessary---no costly
machinery. It is not even necessary to
manufacture it on a large scale. Every
farmer ean afford to make enough for his
own individual une, and no more. And he
can makes it as he does butter, cheaper,
considering his leisure at certain seasons,
thanthan can the factory competitor.
There can never be a monopoly of the al-
So simple is the process of extracting
alcohol, it may be peridicted that every
farmer's silo will be become an alcohol
distillery-by the simple addition of steam
pipes to heat the fermented contents to a
sufficient temperature to give off the light
gas which, precipitated by passing through
cooling tubes, becomes alcohol.
The possibilities of industrial develop-
ment opened up by the passage of this bill
are, according to one authority, unlimited
and unrestricted to any class of people or
branch of industrial endeavor. More than
all others, however, will the farmer profit
by this measure. It will banish drudgery
from the farm and place within the reach
of the ruralite luxuries and mechanical
help never before possible or even dreamed
"And, more than all else," says Mr.
Ford, "it will demonstrate that, despite
pessimistic 'muck rake' writers and politi-
cians, that the people do rule-that, once
show that a measure is for the public
good and no power on earth can prevent,
though it may stay, the ultimate passage
of that measure."
Operators in Florida have got next to
the Savannah bluff that Jacksonville
could not maintain an open market and
that prices here would drop perceptibly.
Prices have kept up to the standard quo-
tations and those who have shipped their
turpentine and rosin to this port have
saved the differential in freights. That
doesn't look like a loss to the operators.
And the best part of it is that the receipts
are continuing heavy at this port and in-
dications point to a steady growth of busi-
Senator Mallory has followed the lead
of Congressman Clark. The Senator
wants the United States Government to
make a complete survey of the hEerglades
to ascertain whether or not the proposition
to drain this great swamp is feasible.
Senator Mallory may find on file at the
geological survey headquarters several re-
ports which express a doubt as to the
practicability of the scheme. These re-
ports are from competent engineers who
have made the survey.
Congressman Frank Clark appears to have
called the Governor's hand in the Ever-
glades drainage question. He has intro-
duced a bill asking the government to
spend $3,000,000 for draining the Ever-
glades. The bill states that this $3,000,-
000 is only to assist the State of Florida
in accomplishing this great undertaking.
With three million to help, the people of
Florida would like to inquire how much
would be necessary to complete the work.
if the Governor was to go it alone.

Mr. Baldwin made the inspection of the

sion of the road is to pass is a rich farm-

Conditions in the Woods Wore than they
Have Been for Years,
Reports from some sections of the naval
stores belt brings the information that the
condition of the woods is something fear-
ful for this season of the year. Later in
the season this kind of a deluge was to
have been anticipated, but it was not ex-
pected tha it would come at this time.
The heavy rains have banked water in
the woods and the laborers refuse in many
eases to work. In the central part of the
State, and in fact from Jacksonville to
Tampa, there is a great deal of water, sad
it is with the greatest difficulty that the
operators are conducting their work. In
some eases the water stands several inches
deep, while in the low marshy sections
of the turpentine farms it is impossible
New Ofciale Have Bea mn ame for
Gainsvila and Gulf.
Official circulars from the office of First
Vice-Presiden A. P. Stuckey of the
Gaineaville and Gulf announce the appoint-
meat of C. N. Atkinson as general mana-
ger of this road, with headquarters in
Gaimesville. Mr. Atkinson is a man of
broad experience, being an extensive rail-
road builder and contractor who has been
making his home in Kansas City. He has
already arrived, and has assumed his du-
It is also announced that Julius Spanier
of Chicago has been appointed industrial
agent of the Gainesville and Gulf, effective
at oce. Mr. Spaier will likely make his
headquarters in Chicago or some other
large Western city.
With the proposed extension of the
Gainesville and Gulf from Fairfield south
to Tampa, the new management will exer-
cis every effort to induce immigration
along its line. The road will traverse one
of the richest and most fertile sections of
the State, and it is estimated that thous-
ands of homeseekers will be attracted here.
J. B. Cutler, superintendent of the
Gainesvile and Gulf, has returned from
an official visit to Fairfeld and other
points on the south end. He has made a
thorough investigation of the conditions,
and reports prospects of one of the best
melon erops that has been recorded in that
section of Alachua county for several
Mr. Cutler states that the movement of
cantaloupes has already begun, two or
three cars having already been moved in
crate lots. Watermelons are also begin-
ning to move, and altogether, with the
acreage and the indi ctions, the Gaines-
ville and Gulf will probably handle more
of this class of business in proportion to
mileage than any other road in the State.
E. B. Polk, of Lakeland, civil engineer
of the Gainesville and Gulf, was in Gaines-
ville on official business Friday. Mr. Polk
would say nothing in regard to the proposed
future movements of the Gainesville and
Gulf, but it is understood that it will not
be many weeks before the construction of
the road from Fairfield south to Tampa
will begin. It was also a current rumor
upon the streets of Gainesville a few days
ago that two capitalists from Chicago
were there, and that they came to investi-
gate the advantages which would be afford-
ed by the extension of the Gainesville and
So far as heard from, the conditions are
growing worse. The rains which fell the
latter part of last week and the first part
of the present week have served to make
the conditions worse than they were ever
known to be at this season of the year.
The reports received were from those
who wrote during the early part of the
week. It may be that the conditions have
improved to some extent, but this is hard-
ly probable. At any rate, if there has
been an improvement, it has not been a
great one and the operators are anticipat-
ing trouble for some time to come.
None of the stills have shut down, as a
matter of course, the owners working with
all of the men they can get to work under
the present conditions.
Strage Weather at Miami.
For the past several days Miami
has been visited with some very strange
weather for the month of June. On Fri-
day afternoon a heavy southeast wind, ac-
companied by rain, set in, and during Fri-
day night it was a constant gust of heavy
winds and rain. Old sailors, who have
been on the water for years, claimed that
at times the wiid blew at the rate of fifty
miles per hour. On Saturday a northeast
storm warning was received at the local
weather bureau, still the wind kept in-
creasing from the southeast, and remained
in that direction throughout Saturday and
Sunday. On Sunday another storm warn-
ing was received, for a southeast storm.
The tides were the heaviest for years, but
little or no damage was done to shipping.
The steamer Martinique, which was due
in port on Saturday from Key West, found
a safe anchorage in the vicinity of
Knight's Key, remaining there until the
storm abated. Capt. Dillon, of the Marti-
nique, who has sailed these Southern wa-
ters for many long years, says this was
the heaviest storm he ever experienced
during the month of June. Through the
country there was no damage done, with
the exception of breaking off some of the
new growth on the citrus trees. There are
several Miami boats that are still out,
and there is considerable anxiety felt for

The Jacksonville open market has proved
a success in its infany. Those who have
bee most interested in the movement de-
elare that the Board of Trade made no
mistake when it adopted the recommenda-
tions of the naval stores committee.
Already there is a tendency toward
Jackonville in the shipping of naval
stores. The fear that Savannah was to
take everything when Jare onville was
declared an open market has v nighed.
The operators of Florida have too muche
pride in their State and in the chief city
of Floarida to work in the interest of Sa-
Savannah voters turned things upside
down at the primary election for Cht-
ham county Tuesday. The league which
fought graft, gambling and corruption in
county and municipal affairs won a signal
victory. Thi day of the grafter and the
gambler is past in the Forest City.
The export docks of the Atlantic Coast
Line Railway have presented a scene of
activity during the past few weeks. As
many as eight schooners were loading
there at one time and there is a great deal
of stock on hand. The saw-tooth wharves
am a great convenience to shipping and
loading there is much easier than on any
of the other docks at this part.
THUs IMIORATION QUESTION.
Some of the papers which have always
manifested a keen interest in the matter
of immigration are beginning to suggest
measures for the consideration of thi
next legislature. While there is every rea-
son for the statement that all of these
recom--de-d*4~ by those who have made
a study of the question are to be turned
down by the legislators, the discussion
has had one good effect at least.
It has been brought to the attention of
the people of the State that every indus-
try in Fr is suffering for the want
of labor and that the future has nothing
in stoe in the shape of improvement. The
manufactures of naval stores, the manu-
facturers of- lumber and the miners of
phosphate have been experiencing trouble
during the past three years in supplying
labor and all of them have reported that
instead of becoming better, conditions are
rapidly growing worse. The negro is fast

to engage in other callings, or to join the
army of colored people who are today a
menace to law and order in the towns of
the South. What negroes remain in the
woods are becoming lazy and are not in-
clined to take any interest in bettering
their conditions there. On the contrary,
they are beginning to prove a most unde-
sirable class and those who employ them
are beginning to feel that the day is not
far distant when some other class of labor
will have to be used. In fact it is fast
becoming apparent that the South must
take this labor problem by the horns and
master it if our many industries are to be
All this is being brought to the front by
those who are discussing the matter at
the present time and the mass of evidence
which the press of Florida has to offer as
an argument in favor of a large appropri-

elusive and ought to convince fair-minded
men who have the best interests of their
State at heart that there is a necessity for
prompt action. The legislatures of the
various States ought to take this question
up. It is there where relief can be had
the most readily. With 'air appropria-
tions for the work and with those in charge
of it who could be depended upon to
handle the situation intelligently, there
ought to be some good accomplished.
There is mush to do. It is harder to se-
cure settlers for the South than for any
other part of the United States. This
fact was demonstrated by a committee
which recently made a study of the mat-

this country from Europe. Three-fourths
of them preferred the East or the middle

But all this ought to spur the several

there are a great many in European coun-

THE OPEN MARKET RbkPuk v A SUCCESS.
At the meeting of the Board of Trade of JackMevll as Wednedlay,
There was a report from the naval store committee which s f great im-
portance and gratifying to the business interest of Jackrvle. Ths 1 prtp
submitted was to the eoect that the ope market for Jashlsaevb 1M
proved decided ccess.
S The report was submitted by Colonel W. M. Toe er, preimM t of th
Naval Store Export Cempaay, who i a member of that comittet, and who
Uha taken a active iateret in the movemet for an open mat for naval
stem in this city. Colonl Toomer was not at all dobtful as to the eo
of the plan and spoke positively. Colond Tooer reported verbally ad
stated at the outaet that the progress made in the mswommt to make Jack-
senvlle an open market had proved stisfactory and that the lnicatio-
were bright. Contiuing, he pointed oet varu s reseemu why there was prm-
ise of coatinued aucce and claimed that the movement iaugutai by the
Board of Trade at its last meeting was a wise e.
He called attention to the fact that ace the ope market was declared
there had been one cargo exported an that this was the hit veal which
ad ever called at this port for a cargo of naval steor for Turoa ports.
Other members of the committee, as wel as the Jacmmve factors are
encouraged at the program of the open market thu far.

asked at the meeting of the Board of

any information as to when the dredges

CITY PROPERTY A SPECIALTY.
EXPORT BUSINESS OF PENSACOLA IS
Pensacola, June 15.-Last week was
one of the best in the way of work for the
baymen that has been experienced in a
great many years.
The large number of steamers and sail-
ing vessels in port taking on cargoes of
lumber and timber, require a small army
of men, and there has not been a day that
the stevedores could secure a sufficient
number of skilled laborers and they were
compelled to take men who had no exper-
ience in storing timber or lumber.
Many million of feet were placed in
the holds of vessels and it is thought that
the coming week will see an equally large
amount of work. The men who do this
class of work receive $4, $6 and $8 per
day, but even at this salary not enough
could be secured, and stevedores were offer-
ing better pay to men who were skilled but
who were engaged in other work. The
large amount of timber taken on board
vessels during the week had reduced the
stocks considerably, and this had the effect
of steadying the timber market, which
had been on the decline for several weeks.
While the receipts were large both by
water and rail, the supply was quickly
taken. The quotations during the latter
portion of the week were 26 and 27 cents
per foot for timber of over thirty feet in
length, and from 21 to 22 cents for shorter
lengths. The lumber market is also firm
with a good demand.
NEW PLANING MILL.
Baker & Cremer to Build n Main Street-
Baker & Cromer's new planing mill, to
be situated on the east side of Main street,
just south of the railroad crossing, will
soon be under way.
A permit was granted to the firm yes-
terday to erect the mill. The main build-
ing is to be 50 by 60 feet. The engine
room is to be 19 by 32 feet, the stable 19
by 44 feet, and the lumber shed is to be
20 by 20 feet.
W. S. Sumter was granted a permit to
erect two-story frame building for stores
and apartments, on the northwest corner
of Julia and North streets, and to erect
a one-story frame cottage on North street,
near Julia street.
C. D .Mills was granted a permit to
erect a handsome one and a half story
brick veneer residence at the corner of
Eighth and Hubbard streets. The size of
the residence will be 35 by 40 feet. The
roof will be of tile. When completed Mr.
Mills will have one of the handsomest
residences in North Springfield.
Claude L'Engle and A. K. Taylor, who
have published the Sun in Jacksonville
for several months, have purchased the
controlling interest in the Capital Pub-
lishing Company at Tallahassee and will
print the Sun from that city. The Capi-
tal Publishing Company has the contract
for the greater part of the State printing
and they will be the State printers.
They are still guessing at Gainesville
where the Gainesville and Gulf Railroad
is to terminate. The rumors of extension
to Tampa are again being circulated. Re-
cent changes in the management has only
served to strengthen the belief that there
is something of this kind contemplated.
The Naval Stores Review says that
there is good profit to be made by the ope-
rators with turpentine selling at 57 cents.
The Naval Stores Review does not keep
up with the conditions existing in the
woods, and is representing the views of the

Naval Stores for the Week.
There was more activity in the Jack- ROSMIS FOR THE WEEK AT JACK-
sonville naval stores market this week
than for any week since this has been
an open market. Sales wee large and
there was a disposition to let both spirits
and rosin go at the prices offered. During
the trading on Thursday and Friday it
was evident that the spirits market was
irmer, and that there was a slight dispo-
sition to advance. The only advance,
however, was one-fourth of a cent, but
this was kept up during Friday and the
prices for today (Saturday), at the open-
ing of trading was at that figure.
The receipts of naval stores, both spirits
and rosin continue large here and it is
evident that the Jacksonville open market
is growing in the confidence of the opera-
tors throughout the State. The fact that
goods shipped here are sold at prices com-
paring favorably with those of Savannah,
and that those who ship here save the
differential on freights from their stills to
Savannah, will serve to increase shipments
to this port and to Fernandina, where the
rate is practically the same.
There was a little incline in the rosin
market with heavy trading during the en-
tire week. Prices held their own well,
both high and low grades remaining prac-
tically stationary during the week. The
receipts and shipments were heavy.
There is a manifest feeling that the
spirits market has reached the level in
prices, though none of the factors will
venture a positive opinion in reference to
the matter. While all of them feel that
the present prices will prevail and incline
rather than decline, none of the Jackson-
ville factors would be surprised to see a
slight fall. During the week the Savan-
nah and Jacksonville markets have prac-
tically been the same.
The feature of the market for the week
both here and at Savannah was the steady
tone of the rosin market. Those who are
watching the situation and trading on the
Jacksonville market express a confidence
that the rosin market will retain its steady
tone for the coming week.
The unfavorable conditions existing in
the woods throughout the turpentine belt
have not affected the market to the ex-
tent that the factors here believe that it
should an there is still a strong indica-

MEASURES TO REOVLATE THE
Wasangton June 8, 1906.
The probable program of Oongresm with
respect to the spoge fisheries of Florida
was fully developed in the House of Rep-
resentatives on Tuesday of this week when
Chairman Grosvenor, of the Committee on
the Merchant Marine and Fisheries, called
up the bill, 8. 480, "to regulate the land-
ing, delivery, cure and sale of sponges."
The House Committee last week re-
ported with a favorable recommendation
the two bills, 8 .4805 and 480, the former
measure being designated "to prohibit
aliens from taking or gathering sponges
in the waters of the United States." The
favorable report upon 8. 4805 was some
thing of a surprise to those who had fol-
lowed the progress of this proposed legis-
lation, for the hearings before the commit-
tee had demonstrated not only that no
great pressure was being exerted on be-
half of this measure, but that several of
the best lawyers on the committee were
doubtful as to the coatitutionality of the
proposition. Chairman Grosvenor has been
reluctant to express any opinion as to why
the committee reported 8. 4805, but there
was undoubtedly much significance in his
action when o Tuesday he called up 8.
4806 under suspension of the rules and
asked for its immediate consideration.
Representative Hinshaw, of the committee,
submitted the following statement:
"The necessity for the proposed legisla-
tion arises out of the fact that recently
and within a year and a half a great many
foreigners and aliens, mostly Greeks, have
been fishing for and gathering sponges in
the waters of the United States on the
coast of Florida, to the great injury of the
industry and to the Ameriean eitimsau en-
gaged in the same business
"In the United states sponges are only
found in Florida waters or waters of the
Gulf and southeast coast of that State.
The gathering of sponges in these waters
for commercial purposes has been going on
for half a century, and up to the advent
of the Greeks, principally by citizens of
Key West, where 5,000 or 10,000 people
are either interested in or depending upon
that business for a livelihood.
"The method adopted by these people in
fishing for sponges is of the simpler kind,
known as harpooning, or hooking. That
is, the sponges are gathered by the use of
a book on a long pole in the hands of the
fishermen. By this method the Key West-
ers have been able to supply the demand
for Florida sponges and support them-
selves and their families, but, as prev-
iously stated, large numbers of Greeks
with diving outfits, accustomed hereto-
fore to ply their vocation in the Mediter-
ranean Sea, but driven these by the coun-
tries bordering on that sea in the interest
of the sponge washing there, are in turn
driving our own itisens out of the busi-
"They practice exclusively the diving
methods. Each diver is fitted out with a
diving suit in which he can go down into
great depths, and, remaining on the bot-
tom for hours, is thus enabled to gather
a arger number of sponges in a given time
than his competitor, the hooker, who finds
himself at a great disadvantage in the
"Furthermore, the sponge beds in the
Florida waters are being rapidly depleted,
furnishing an additional reason for some
restrictive legislation in the matter of
sponge fishing in the United States."
It was though that the amendment to S.
4806 added by the committee providing
that "no sponge shall be landed, delivered,
cured or offered for sale at any port or
place in the United States of a smaller
size than four inches in diameter" would
provoke some debate, as it is clear that
while it is intended to apply only to
sponges taken off the Florida coast, it will
be construed by the customs officials as
applicable also to imported sponges of
every kind. As heretofore pointed out in
this correspondence, large quantities of
sponges are annually imported of species
which rarely grow to four inches in diam-
eter and which are used for surgical and
toilet purposes, and it is believed that the
amendment of the committee will seriously
embarrass the trade. Nevertheless, the
House adopted it without a word of dis-
cussion. The bill as it will now be re-
turned to the Senate for concurrence in
the House amendment, reads as follows:
"Be it enacted, etc., That from and after
May 1, 1907, it shall be unlawful to land,
deliver, cure or offer for sale at any port
or place in the United States any sponges
taken by means of diving or diving appa-
ratus from the waters of the Gulf of
Mexico or Straits of Florida; Provided,
That sponges taken or gathered by such
process between October 1 and May 1 of
each year in a greater depth of water than
fifty feet shall be landed, delivered, cured
or offered for sale at any port or place in
the United States of a smaller size than
four inches in diameter.
"See. 2. That every person guilty of a
violation of this act shall for each offense
be liable to a fine of not less than $100 or
more than $500, which fine shall be a lien
against the vessel on which the offense
was committed. And every vessel used or
employed in violation of this act shall be
liable to a fine of not less than $100 or
more than $500 or forfeiture, and hall
be seized and proceeded against by pro-
cess of libel in any court having jurisdic-
tion of the offense.
"See. 3. That any violation of this act
shall be prosecuted in the district court
of the United States of the district where-
in the offense was committed."
ALL ARRANGEMENTS FOR POSTING
STOCKS HAVB BEEN PERFECTED.
Beginning with this week the Jackson-
ville Board of Trade, through the kindness
of some of those who are directly interest-
ed in making this an open market, will
post stocks as well as quotations and sales.
Heretofore the Board of Trade has been
prevented from doing this because of the
attitude of some of the transportation
companies who have refrained from giving
their shipments. This prevented the post-
ing of receipts. The Clyde Line has re-
fused to give its shipments, but the mat-
ter has been called to the attention of the
high officials and it is believed that the In-
formation will be secured.
The refusal on the part of the transpor-
tation companies was due to a carefully
followed policy not to divulge any of the
business of the company, but when the
matter has been taken up with the officials
at the headquarters of the roads, they
have willingly given the information
A large blackboard has been provided
and hereafter all the information neces-
sary for the trade will be given there.
The market is to be conducted on carefully
laid down principles and the trading is to
be conducted hereafter with more informa-
tion at hand than was given for the first
few weeks following the action of the
Board of Trade in declaring this an open
