C. W Chae Intimates That Chinese Labor
Labor Question Will be Tiding Issue at T.
O. A. Convention.
Several months ago Mr. 0. W. Chase, of
Gainesville, in this State, imported from
California at great expense, about forty
Chinamen, who were brought hre to work
on his naval stores farm in Alaehua county.
Mr. Chase went to Californis and the
State of Washington to select these men
and his visit there was for the purpose of
satisfying himself that they were of the
best of that class. Mr. Chase did not do
as some of the employers of labor in this
State have done. He went to look after
the men himself before he advanced rail-
road fare to bring them to Florida.
Arriving here with the men, Mr. Chase
put them to work and they have been at
work since that time. From time to time
demanded of him, but he is slow in mov-
ing from place to place. The second day
I had the colony on my place there was
not a man who could not chip a box and
do it as well as any one, but I was not
long in finding out that they lost a great
deal of time in moving from tree to tree.
Where the trees are scattered it will not
pay to work the Chinamen. They move
too slowly. A good negro will move much
faster. In fact, he will walk from ten to
twenty miles a day in chipping and dipping
and work hard, too. The Chinaman can-
not compare with him in walking, and is
no faster, if as fast as the negro when at
"I think, however, that there is work

and some of the other papers of this State that they would be the very men for the
references to the Chinese colony nad nearly
all of the references made to them have
been favorable. It has been said that the
Chinamen were a sueess But Mr. C(sse
does not appear to think that this is the
Mr. Chase was in Jacksonville Saturday
on his way to New York to take the ship
for Europe and was seen by a representa-
tive of the Industrial Record. To a repre-
sentative of this paper, he said:
"I cannot say that the Chinaman is a
success on the naval stores farm. I have
been watching the colony I brought to this
State with a great deal of interest and
were I to be asked if the Chinaman is a
desirable laborer for this section of the
country, I would answer briefly that he is
an excellent man when the character of
the work at which he is engaged does not
require any great moving around. I have
found that the Chinaman is quick to catch
on to the character of the work that is

packing houses and for work of that char-
acter, and I think that there is a great deal
of this work to be done."
Mr. Chase did not have the time to enter
into more minute details and give a more
general description of his experiences with
the Chinese colony. He added, however,
that some of them were going back to
Washington on an excursion and he made
the's remark with a tone to indicate that
they would not be pressed to return to
When Mr. Chase brought the Chinese
to Florida the naval stores operators were
of the opinion that they would hardly fill
the place of the negro. There appears to
be no doubt about that. The fact is all

to supplant the negro appears to have
failed. The labor problem is one which
apparently will not down. It will be a live
issue at the next meeting of the Turpen-

One of the houses has already been

the side tracks is now under way and the
laying of the tracks will be completed
within a short time after the property is

In order to get the factory to locate here
the city gave permission for the extension
ot side tracks to the site across streets
in the vicinity and near the biggest water
main leading from the pumping station.
It was provided, however, that all neces-
sary precautions should be taken to pre-
vent any injury to the main. The location
of the factory here will probably mean
a great deal to the city in time. It was

In connection with the approaching con-
vention of the Turpentine Operators' As-
sociation the keenest interest is in refer-
ence to the labor problem.
Both factors an operators are showing
a deep concern in the matter of labor and
claim that unless there is something done
to regulate prices and other changes made
in present conditions the naval stores inter.
eats are to suffer.
One of the oldest operators in Florida,
a gentleman who came here from North
Carolina and who has been in the business
for twenty-three years, states that under
present conditions and with the operators
carrying on a war against each other for
the possession of men, that there is noth-
ing to be made in operating. He claims
that the rates which are paid today are
beyond reason and that with this strong
competition existing there is no hope of
making money in the future.
This operator compared the rates being
paid today with those which were paid
years ago. In this connection he said:
"When I first began to make naval stores
I paid for labor from $12.50 to $16 per
month. Now you have to pay on an av-
erage of $26 per month and at that figure
you can't get as good labor. The negro is
becoming too independent and there is not
VAGRANCY LAW AIDS LABOR SIT-
When the members of the police depart-
.ment and the county officials commenced
a crusade against vargrants in Jacksonville
they found no trouble in locating quite a
number of worthless, idle negroes who were
held for trial in the criminal court.
For the past few days, however, the offi-
cers declare that the many old timers who
lounged about LaVilla day and night, play-
ing pool, but never working and whom
they intended rounding up and sending to
jail cannot be found.
Labor agents who had been making
strenuous efforts to secure labor for vari-
ous enterprises throughout the State, met
with a failure when they attempted to se-
cure negroes from Jacksonville. But now
it is different, and negro labor, it is said,
can be secured without the least bit of
trouble in Jacksonville.
In speaking of the matter Sunday a
labor agent said:
"I came to Jacksonville about a month
ago to secure laborers to work on a new
railroad in the State. I walked through
laVilla day and night, but every negro I
approached announced that he did not have
to work and refused a position, although
I guaranteed them work for over a year
at $1.25 a day.
"I went from Jacksonville to Charleston
In search of laborers and found that the
same conditions prevailed there, I walked
down on the piers and could see thous-
ands of idle negroes lounging about, but
the work in one of them that there was
when I first entered the field. Where it
used to cost from 40 to 45 cents for piece
work it now costs from 75 cents to $1.
Of course the prices are better now than
they were at that time, but the price of
labor has more than kept up with the
advance in the price of spirits and rosin.
I am of the opinion that something should
be done and that at the next convention
of the T. O. A. there ought to be a general
discussion of the labor problem and some-
thing ought to be done to bring about a
ino-e general understanding and some kind
of an agreement. I regard this as being
of the utmost importance."
In reference to the prices, there is rea-
son for the belief that at this coming
meeting something will be done in an effort
to handle the situation in the interest of
the operator, but just what line of action
is to be taken is not known. The factors
here state that they are not aware of any
plan having been proposed and all of them
appear to regard the question of regulat-
ing labor paramount to that of prices.
There in a deep interest among the fac-
tors of Jacksonville in reference to the
coming convention and they are hoping for
a large and a representative gathering of
operators from all parts of the naval stores
they refused to work. While in Charles-
ton, however, I received a telegram stating
that twenty-five negro laborers had been
secured from Jacksodville. To say that
I was surprised would not express it. I
could not understand why one agent could
follow me up and secure labor where I had

ed Jacksonville a few days ago and heard
that the authorities were enforcing the

and in a very short time had seemedd a
mgooly number of negroes who were willing

"I believe that should the vagrancy law
be strictly enforced by the authorities that
labor would not be so scarce all over the
State and that crime would be reduced in
a great degree.
"Jacksonville is not only overrun with a
worthless class of negroes, but many white
men idle away their time in LaVilla and
refuse to earn an honest dollar when the
opportunity is offered them.
"I feel that the officials are to be con-
Erratulated upon their efforts in enforcing
ilhi law but believe they should keep it
up and not stop when they have placed
fifteen or twenty negroes in jail. I have
been told by officers that vagrants cannot
be found in the city since the crusade has
commenced, but I believe this to be a
mistake, as LaVilla appears to be over-
run with tLem."

fear from the new commission. The com-
mission is created for the service of the
entire country and not for the benefit of
the Atlantic seaboard lines. It should
make no difference from what section the
commissioners are chosen. They should be
willing and just enough to accord to the
gulf port lines all that is due them in
the way of advantageous rates. I do not
mean that there should be any discrimi-
nation one way or the other, but it has
been suggested that the new commission
would be likely to give the trunk lines of
the Atlantic coast an advantage. I do not
take any stock in any such theory. The
commission, in my opinion, will give the
gulf port lines all that is justly their due."
Improvement of Carrabele Harbor.
The Georgia, Florida and Alabama road
now enters Carrabelle from Cuthbert. The
line is operating 187 miles including a
steamer line of thirty miles from Carra-
belle to Apalachicola. The company is
preparing to expend a large sum in dredg-
;ng the harbor at Carrabelle to secure a
sufficient depth of water to insure the land-
ing of deep draft vessels. It is expected
that the harbor will have a depth of eigh-
teen feet at low water within five months.
and when this is accomplished the traffic
from this port, foreign and coastwise, will
Capt. Denham 's in correspondence with
several steamer lines, with a view to hav-
ing Carrabelle included in the ports of
call, and it is probable that the Mallory
Line, or some other, will establish connec-
tion there within the period mentioned.
The entrance of a regular coastwise steam-
er line will be but an initial step to the
coming of foreign steamers and the busi-
ness from this port is destined for a great
development. From its location and the
character of the territory traversed by the
Georgia, Florida and Aalabama, the port
will command a large business.
Georgia Man m Commiaaion.
In arguing that the personnel of the
commission would be opposed to the fos-
tering of traffic to Gulf ports it has been
cited that the chairman of the commission,
Martin A. Knapp, is from New York,
Charles A. Prouty, who is regarded as one
on2 of the shrewdest members, is from
Vermont, and Francis M. Cockrell is from
St. Louis. It is said that Judson C. Clem-
ents of Georgia is the only strictly Gulf
port man on the commission and the only
one likely in the fixing of Gulf port rates
to stand for the Gulf ports. Under the
new law the commission will be enlarged
to svyen members, and the Atlantic sea-
board men will predominate on the com-
As a result of a conference held in Chi-
belle as a Gulf port for export the traffic
is certain to experience an impetus. Here-
tofore the vessels have been loaded from
lighters and the cost of this transfer has,
as a matter of course, been added to the
through freight rate. With the deepening
of the harbor the lighterage charge will
be done away with, as vessels will be en-
abled to land and load at the docks proper.
Development of West Central.
In addition to the money expended in
the Carrabelle harbor by the railroad com-
pany, the engineer of the district has in-
dorsed a petition for an appropriation of
$200,000 for further work to be done by
the government. Capt. Denham says he is
very well assured that this appropriation
will be passed.
He says that the harbor improvement
does not mean that any of the business
of the South Atlantic ports will be taken
away, for the effect will be to develop
the resources and export trade of the ter-
ritory through which the Georgia, Florida
and Alabama runs. It will have the effect
of attracting a considerable business from
the West which has heretofore sought out-
let through the more western ports, and
in the end will result in the development
of the west central section of the State.
A corps of surveyors is in the field north
of Cuthbert. The line will be built into
Columbus and beyond, the final objective
point of construction not having been de-
termined. as yet. Mr. ,T. P. Williams, of
Savannah, is president of the road, and
is enthusiastically impressed with the bril-
liant prospects of the project.

Atlantic Coast Line Permanently Abandons Jacksonville Wholesale Firm Meets With
Project for Extending its Tracks
The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com-
pany has permanently abandoned the pro-
ject looking to the extension of its tracks
from the export terminals, north of the
Florida Ostrich Farm, around the bend of
the river to the site of Henry Clark's old
The reason given for abandoning the pro-
ject is the high prices asked by property
holders along the once proposed line for
right of way.
The announcement that the plans had
been abandoned, and abandoned perma-
nently, was made yesterday afternoon by
Mr. George W. Haines, special agent of the
Atlantic COast Line Railroad Company
here, at the meeting of the special commit-
tee of the board of trade, which met to
investigate the causes of the present
The announcement was made by Mr.
Haines in reply to a statement by one
of the members of the committee to the
effect that the completion of this line,
popularly known as the "river belt line,"
would furnish additional wharfage facili-
ties, if necessary, and might end a similar
congestion occurring in the future. The
announcement that the plan had been aban-
doned came as a decided surprise, as it
had been expected generally that work on
the belt line would be commenced shortly.
The statement of Mr. Haines, as made
to the committee yesterday, may be briefly
summarized as follows:
Recently holders of property in that sec-
tion came to him and earnestly urged that
the railroad line be built along that route,
from just north of the Ostrich Farm to
the old Clark mill site. He took up the
matter with the railroad company and
the company decided to build the line,
.making Mr. Haines their representative
in arranging for promptly carrying out
The understanding given Mr. Haines
was, he stated yesterday, that a 50-foot
right of way would be given the com-
pany. in exchange for the building of the
line and the increase in property values
that would follow. Then, as he expressed
it, -'they sat up nights figuring out what
that right of way was worth," and finally
conditions became such that it would have
cost the company about $200,000 for the
right of way.
"This ended the plan." concluded Mr.
Hains, "and I can announce that the
,conimany has permanently abandoned the
As stated in the foregoing the project

(oast Line's tracks from the export ter-
Iinals. north of the Floridai Ostrich Farm,
aniund the bend of the river to the site
of Henry Clark's old sawmill.
The track was to have followed the
course of the river, and would have been
approximately four hundred feet from the
river for the entire distance.
This would have placed it about six
hundIred feet eas of Talleyrand avenue,
from the ostrich farm to a point east of
the intersection of Duval street with Tal-
lc\yrand avenue. It would then have swung

Merits of the Various Systems.
"In each institution investigated an ef-
fort was made to secure the opinion of offi-
cials and employers of convicts as to the
nierits and demerits of the several systems
under which convicts work. Replies to this
inquiry may be summarized as follows:
In support of the lease system, the only
argument offered is the poverty of the
State, inability to provide quarters, food
and guards and suitable work to keep con-

"Contractors pay for the work under
the piece price system, not by the day,
but by the piece or article produced.
Prison officials may or may not supervise
the work. lut they control the pressure
under which the convict must work.
"By the public account system the State
goes into business, places its goods on the
market and assumes all risks of profit or

convicts, who work more willingly for the
State than for a contractor.
"Under the State use system convicts
are employed in the same manner as under
the public account system, the only dif-
ference being in the disposal of the prod-
uct. Goods must be consumed in the in-
stitution, or sold to other State institu-
tions or departments of the State govern-
ment. This system has been adopted
largely because of the objections of free
labor to the competition of the convicts
and the manufacturer employing free labor
to the competition of prison made goods.
Competition With Free Labor.
'There must be competition between
convict and free labor, but under this sys-
tem it is indirect, for what the State pro-
vides it does not have to purchase and thus
the cost of maintaining institutions is par-
tially met and taxation reduced. This sys-
tem seeks to conserve these three interests,
financial, general interest of the convict
and free labor, which is ignored entirely
in lease, contract and piece price, and to
a great extent in the public account sys-
tem. A system of State use, however, has.
its faults. It cannot supply all the wants
of the convicts, as the convicts cannot enter
every industry, and as the demand for con-
vice product is limited, the convicts can-
not be worked to their full capacity.
"Public works and ways system is nearly
the same as that of State use, and com-
petition with free labor is further removed,
for the State is the sole benefeiary of the
work of the convicts who are employed in
erecting public buildings, building highways
of a permanent character, rather than
making articles for consumption.
"Much work is done that would be de-
layed or possibly not undertaken at all
if it were not for this use of convict labor.

ho difficulty is experienced in procurin
anappropriation for the maintenance of

be impossible to secure a direct appropria-
tion for the same work to be performed
by free labor. An objection to the employ-
meat of which is admitted to be against
the best interests not only of the public
but of the convict as welL
Prison labor is not like free labor. Con-
victs are on hand whether wanted or not
and it is more often a matter of finding
work for the convicts than of finding em-
ployees for the work."
JACKSONVILLE BUSINESS MEN BUY
TAMPA REAL ESTATE.
The following is from the Tamps corres-
pondent of the Times-Union:
Tampa, Aug. 1.-The controlling stock
of the Tampa Bay Land Company of this
city, it is understood, has been purchased
by James A. Hollomon and Edwin Brob-
ston and their associates, of Jacksonville.
The company owns the suburb known as
Madrid, which is one of the largest and
most desirable resident additions to this
city. It contains several hundred acres
and is situated on or near the.Ballat Point
ear line, looking out upon beautiful Hills-
boro bay. Some of the most beautiful resi-
deices around Tampa are located on the
bIy shore, and the Madrid suburb begins
at the beautiful resort known as Palma-
cea Springs and owned by State Senator
Palmer of this city. Some of the best
known men of Tampa are interested in the
Tampa Bay Land Company, notably Mr.
Blount, president of the Peninsular Naval
Stores Company; Clerk Knott, of the cir-
cuit court; James L Taylor, of the Sea-
board Air Line; Samuel Bonshardt, the well
known attorney, and others. The largest
block of stock has heretofore been owned
by C. M. Brooks, whose holdings have been
sold in their entirety to Messrs. Hollomon,
irobston and their associates. It is not
stated what figures represent the purchase
price of the controlling stock, but the prop-
erty is estimated to be worth in the neigh-
borhood of one hundred thousand dollars.
It is very popularly considered the cream
of resident suburbs. Tampa is to be con-
gratulated upon having these well known
Jacksonville citizens enter this city for
investment. That they will inject some
life and spirit into local realty matters is

AN OPINION WORTHY OF RESPECT.
The Live Oak Democrat is one of the
ablest edited papers in the State of Flor-
ida. Its editor is Major George Dixon,
who hails from Alabama, and who in
discussing the peonage case reported from
that State a week or two ago, talks with
a knowledge of Alabama not to be sneered
Major Dixon, to use plain language, in-
dicates that the Germans swore to a
falsehood, when they told their tale to the
United States Court Commissioner the
other day. The Live Oak Democrat has
two editorials on this subject. The first
"Some very ugly stories are getting into
print here of late about the harsh treat-
ment received by foreigners brought to
Florida and Alabama from the North to
take service in the turpentine camps, saw-
mills and other public works. Doubtless
some of these stories are grossly exag-
gerated, and some of them downright lies.
The law provides an adequate remedy for
the cruelties alleged to have been prac-
ticed upon these people and the remedy
should be invoked. We want immigrants
to Florida, but the stories now going out
over the country about the treatment of
free labor here in the mills and camps, will
certainly frighten it away is permitted to
In discussing the same question the day
following, the Democrat says:
"Warrants have been issued by the
United States Commissioner at Pensacola
for the arrest of persons charged with
holding in peonage certain German labor-
ers recently brought from the North to
work for the Jackson Lumber Company,
just across the Florida line. Very sensa-
tional stories of alleged cruelty to these
laborers have been published in the papers,
and their truth has been denied in the
strongest terms by the manager of the
company. The legal investigation will
doubtless bring out all the facts, and as
papers all over the United States have
published dispatches alleging the peonage,
accompanied by great cruelties, there is a
widespread interest to know how much
truth there is in the story. It is incredible
that healthy, freehorn white men permit-
ted themselves to be enslaved by the
Jackson Lumber Company and tied up and
whipped like dogs at the pleasure of cruel

PEONAGE CHARGES UNTRUE.
In our issue of last week we made various refer-

The following Associated Press dispatch proves the
correctness of our position:
Birmingham. August 1.-Emil Lesser, president of the German
Immigration Society of Alabama, returned from Lockhart tonight, where
he has been investigating the charges of peonage in the camp of the
Jackson Lumber Co. Mr. Lesser will submit a report to Governor Jelks,
"I have interviewed nearly one hundred laborers and have not
found a single person who could or who would make any complaint
about peonage or cruel treatment. If peonage ever existed at Lock-
hart all traces of it has been removed. The German vice-consul at
Pensacola authorizes me to say officially that the statements as to com-
plaints being made to him by Germans escaping from these camps are
COME TO THE CONVENTION.
There are many reasons for the state-
ment that the next convention of the Tur-
pentine Operators' Association will be one
of the most important ones in the history
of the Association.
In the first place the gradual decline of
spirits demands not only a careful study,
but it demands an earnest consideration by
all of those engaged in the industry.
Another question which demands the
most earnest and the most serious con-
siueration is the question of labor and
the prices which are being paid through-
out the turpentine belt. Recently there
has been a manifest disposition on the
part of some of the operators to increase
the prices of labor and this has been
calling for the most vigorous condemnation
on the part of those who see the danger in
such a policy.
Everything considered the next conven-
tion of the T. O. A. ought to be the most
important of any It is hoped that there
will be a large attendance. The indica-
tions are that there will be a representa-
tive body present and that every ques-
tion is to be carefully and earnestly con-

Great Success Has Been Achieved by the
Groover-Stewart Drug Co,
Enterprising business methods, a care-
fully acquired knowledge of the conditions
and wants of the trade, together with
prompt and courteous service are the ele-
ments which have been responsible for the
great success achieved by the Uroover-
Stewart Drug Company, formerly the
Christie-Groover Drug Company.
This wholesale drug firm has established
a trade, which in importance is second
to none in this section of the South and
which is growing constantly, supplying
to Florida, Georgia and Alabama facilities
for the retailer which were in great de-
mand until this company commenced busi-
ness in this city.
The growth of the business of this com-
pany is regarded as remarkable, when ev-
erything is taken into consideration and
emphasizes the success which the firm has
achieved. Today the Groover-Stewart
Company occupies one of the prettiest
four-story blocks in the city of Jackson-
ville, which is noted for the excellent char-
acter and style of its business blocks.
The new home of the company is one of
the best equipped in the South. It is pro-
vi led with all of the most modern im-
provements, conveniently arranged and as
a warehouse for the great stock which
must be carried to comply with the de-
mands of a business of that magnitude, it
offers every advantage. The building stands
on Adams street, near Main, and almost
adjoins the magnificent home of the Jack-
sonville Board of Trade. It is built of
white pressed bricks, is imposing in archi-
tecture and has an abundance of light and
the very best ventilation. The offices are
arranged on the first floor on the west
side of the building running from the main
entrance to the rear, giving the large cler-
ical force as well as the officers of the
company an excellent place in which to
carry on the business of the concern. This
new home of thc Groover-Stewart Drug
Company stands as a monument to their
enterprise as well as to their great busi-
The business of this company extends
over several Stats an dit has the advan-
tage because of its extent, in meeting com-
petition and giving to the druggists rf
several States excellent facilities and thi
best prices for which they can purchase
Under date of July 16th, the company
sent out a neatly printed announcement
of a change in name, which follows:
"To Our Friends:
"'The year just passed has been the most
successful in the history of our company.
As we begin the New Year we wish to an-
nounce a change in the name of the Com-
pany to The Groover-Stewart Drug Com-
pany. In making this change we acknowl-
edge the valuable services of the Stewarta
in helping to make this business the grand
success it has attained.
"In this connection we wish to thank
our friends most heartily for the loyal
support given us, and while it is a change
in name only, we wish to ask our friends
for the same loyal support for the new
name they have given the old. It will be
the policy of the company under the new
name to keep up the high standard of
service we have always endeavored to
render our friends and customers.
"Again thanking you for your most gen-
erous support and wishing to see you soon
in our new home and under our new ban-
ner, we are, .Yours very truly,
"The Groover-Stewart Drug Co."
The (roover-Stewart Drug Company is
among the best established and most wor-
thy of tie wholesale business houses of
.Jacksonville and a bright future is prom-
ised by every indication. The officers of
the company are as follows:
F. C. Groover, president.; M. W. Stew-
art. vice-president; H. E .Stewart, secre-
tary and treasurer; who with C. E. Garner,

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 17
REALTY IN GAINESVILLE.
About eighteen months ago Philip Mil-
ler, who was for many years a successful
business man and progressive citizen of
Gainesville, decided to dispose of his inter-
ests here and look for more extensive fields.
Mr. Miller, who owned the Law Exchange,
one of the handsomest buildings in the
city, sold the property to C. A. Colclough,
the consideration being $21,000. Mr. Miller
went to Jacksonville, where he engaged in
the real estate business, but he has now
decided to return to Gainesville and make
it his home.
Among the first pieces of property which
struck Mr. Miller's eye as being a desirable
investment was the Law Exchange. Mr.
Colelough stated to the proposed purcha-
ser that he was perfectly satisfied and did
not care to sell, but after some time finally
did consent, and sold the property back to
the original owner for $25,000, making a
clear profit of $4,000 on his investment, to
say nothing of the revenue of something
over $200 a month from the premises
while he owned them.

LAW OF TIMBER OPTTONS.
Important Decisin by Supreme Court ft
Mayes, J.-October 31, 1902, Comstoek
Bros. wrote to J. E. North as follows:
"Mr. J. E. North, Bond, Miss.
"Dear Sir-We will withdraw our Miss-
issippi tract in Harrison and Pearl River
counties from the market until January 1,
1904, during which time you may send
your men to look it over, and if at the
expiration of the time, or February 1, 1904,
you decide to take this land, we will sell
you 8-9 and give you warranty deed on the
same at the rate of $20 per acre, and in the
meantime we will try and get the consent
of the parties owning the other 1-9 at
the same price, but will not guarantee their
consent. Yours truly,
On April 1 190, Comstock Bros. filed
their bill in the chancery court of Harri-
son county, the allegations of which briefly
stated, are that they are the owners of
an 8-9 interest in a large body of land
situated in Harrison county, Mssissippi,
and describing the said property by metes
and bounds, setting forth their deraign-
ment of title. The bill states that upon
the receipt of the letter by North he had
same recorded with the chancery clerk of
Harrison county, claiming it to be an op-
tion on the land described in the bill, and
prayed for a cancellation o f the said let-
ter as a cloud upon their title and that the
same be declared null and void.
The defendant North answered the bill
and claimed that the above letter gave him
a valid and binding option for the pur-
chase of said land up to February 1, 1904,
and claimed that acting under said option
he had expended a large sum of money in
causing the land to be looked over and ex-
amined. and is still doing so, and is willing,
able and ready to carry out his part of the
contract as contained in the letter set out
above. On February 1. 1904, the defendant,
North, asked and obtained leave of the
court to file a cross-bill. The substantial
allegations of the cross-bill are that North,
after receipt of above letter, expended a
large sum of money in making the exam-
ination and investigation of the land of
Comstock Bros.. lying in Harrison county,
and said letter gave to defendant a bind-
inc option on said land until February 1,
1904. The cross-bill then states: "It was
agreed between this cross-complainant and
said defendant that eross-complainant
should, at his own expense, cause exami-
nation and investigation to be made of
the land, and in consideration thereof
North to pay same. when the court shall
ascertain the amount due. On February
2, 1904, Comstock Bros. asked leave to
dismiss their original bill, which was grant-
ed by the court, and a decree entered on
February 4, 1904, allowing Coamtock Bros.
"to withdraw their original bill without
prejudice to the rights of defendant to pro-
ceed under his cross-bill and to obtain
thereby such affirmative relief independ-
ent of the original hill as the cross-bill
might entitle him to." Comstock Bros.,
after filing answer denying all allegations
of fraud made in cross-bill demurred to the
cross-bill of North, setting up 10 different
grounds of demurrer. We notice only the
second ground, which is: "Because the
written contract, or option, relied upon in
said cross-bill, is void on its face, for un-
certainty and want of description of any
lands and for want of consideration."
The letter written by Comstock Bros. to
the defendant is nothing but a mere offer
to sell to North the land inquestion, hav-
ing no consideration to uphold it, and,
therefore, revocable at the pleasure of
Oomstock Bros. before acceptance by North.
The allegations of the bill do not show any
acceptance on the part of North, or state
facts which would constitute an acceptance
on his part. All contracts for options must
be supported by a sufficient consideration,
which is utterly lacking in this case. It is
true that Comstock Bros., in writing to
North, say, "You may send your men to
look it over, and if at the expiration of the
time, February 1, 1904, you decide to take
this land, we will sell you 8-9 interest and
yive you warranty deed," etc. North al-
leges in his cross-bill that acting upon this
clause of the letter he sent men, and ex-
pended large sums of money, in obtaining
information in reference to the land, which
he communicated to Comstock Bros. and
which they are attempting to use for their
own benefit. Where an option is condi-
tioned upon the performance of certain
acts, the performance of the acts may con-
stitute a consideration to uphold the con-
tract for option, blit there is no such con-
dition imposed by this letter, and if it be
true that North has communicated to
Comstock Bros. the information gathered
by him in making the investigation, it was
unrely a voluntary act of his. not contem-
olated or stipulated for by the terms of
the letter. and, therefore, imposing no ob-
liation on Oonmtork Bros. not stipulated
for or mentioned in the letter of proposal.
All the expense in examining the land
ircurred by North was incurred on his own
account, for the purpose of informing him-
self as to whether or not it would be de-
cross-complainant should have the right sirable for him to make the purchase, and
or option to purchase aid realty up to was not in any way intended to benefit
February 1. 1904, at the rate of u0O per Comstock Bros. so far as is shown by the
acre." Actiir upon this, and at his own letter, nor was it incurred in their behalf,
expense. North expended a large sum of nor did it create any consideration for the
money, something in excess of $6,000; the option It is true that in the original bill
cron-hill then concludes with the prayer of Iomstock Bros thev refer to this letter
for an accounting, under the direction of as anas an option, hut it lacks that es-
