For Annual Convention of the Turpentine Operators' Association
To Al Turpentine Operators, Factors and Others Interested in the Industry:
The Sixth Annual Convention of the Turpentine Opera-
tors' Association will be held in the Board of Trade Auditorium,
Jacksonville, Florida, Tuesday and Wednesday, September 11th
and 12th 1906. A large attendance is urged as matters of interest t
will be discussed and acted upon. Reduced rates will be granted
on railroads and a complete program will be announced in due time.
A. D. COVINGTON,
J. A. HOLLOMON, President.
Merchants of Jacksonville
Following our usual custom, we will issue a specially attractive number of
THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD on Thursday, September 6th-one week before
the annual meeting of the Turpentine Operators' Association, which is to be
held in Jacksonville September 11th and 12th.
The gathering of the naval stores men in Jacksonville each year is an im-
portant factor in the business circles of the city, as a large proportion of the
operators take advantage of this visit to make extensive fall purchases.
The special edition of the INDUSTRIAL RECORD will be in the hands of practi-
cally every operator in the territory before he comes to Jacksonville. It will also
be liberally distributed at the meeting of the Association. Containing, as it will,
the official program, and articles and comments on matters to be discussed, it
will be carefully read by every man interested in the turpentine business.
This special number offers a splendid medium to the merchants of Jackson-
vile (wholesale and retail) for getting in touch with the naval stores men. It will
pay you to put your announcement in this issue. The cost, compared with at-
tendant results, is small. If you wish space, please phone us and we will have
our representative call and arrange with you for same.

4 THU WNKLY INDUSTRIAL RBOORD.
NEARLY LEVZN MILLIuW rJET OF
LUMBR= 8HIPPED THIS MONTH.
According to the records at the custom
house the exports for August to date are
very gratifying, and from the present in-
dieations the umber shipments will be far
ahead of last month.
The foreign business so far this month
has been excellent, two vessels having en-
tered from foreign ports and four clearing
for foreign ports. Twenty vessels have en-
tered port to date and twenty-five vessels
have cleared to date.
The shipments of lumber, including eross-
ties and coastwise adn foreign shipments
of yellow pine lumber, amounts to 10,848,-
848 feet, which is an excellent showing.
The amount of yellow pine lumber ship-
ped to coastwise ports amounted to 8,241,-
500 feet. T foreign ports, 1,113,348 feet.
Crosties (37,00) pieces, 1,492000 feet.
In addition to the lumber shipped to
coastwise ports there has been a large
quantity of general merchandise shipped,
including 10,580 barrels of naval stores,
09,06 sundries, 6,400 bundles of shingles,
4,450 crates of fruits and vegetables and
2,250 packages of fruit, 200 bales of to-
baeo, 6,375 sacks of clay and many other
The coastwise imports are very heavy to
date. The include grain, bacon, flour, steel
rails, coal, caned goods, shoes, corn, meal,
rice, general merchandise, sundries, brick,
iron pipe, cement, snuff, sugar, cartridges,
stoves, hay, nails, bagging and bacon butts.
The sundries amount to 15,150 packages.
The foreign exports have been excep-
tionally good. In addition to the lumber
mentioned in the foregoing, which went to
San Juan, P. R.; Barbados, B. W. I.;
Vigo, Spain; Havana, Cub; and Nassau,
N. P., valued at $50,131, quite a lot of gen-
eral merchandise has been shipped.
The steamship Nicaragua, of the Nas-
sau line, left Saturday on her first trip
during this month with a magnificent ear-
go. In addition to other articles she ear-
ried 70,000 bundles of shingles, 6,000 bags
of fertilizer, 5,000 briek and a miseellan-
eous cargo valued at $1,99.
The foreign business for the month of
August is very good to date, and the pros-
pects are bright for several other foreign
cargoes during the month.
The foreign imports during the month
to date are as follows: (ocoanuts, 00,-
000; iron pyrites, 2,53 tons; bananas, 34
bunches; fruit, 30 boxes; limes, 10 bar-
rels. The pyrites came on the British
steamship Oastleventry from Huelva, while
the other items came on the steamship Nic-
aragua from Nassau and Toeo Bay, Cuba.
GOOD WORK DOM On WrIE ClHAW-
In all probability the latter part of this
week will find four powerful dredges at
work on the river channel.
It is conidently expected that the two
government dredges, the Jacksonville and
the St. Johns; will begin work Wednes-
day sad that the Atlantic will quickly
follow them, if, indeed, that dredge does
not precede them in beginning work on
the river channel proper.
Trout creek shoals, now the shallowest
place between the city and the sea, is being
rapidly deepened. Capt. R. G. Rose, who
was given the contract for this work, has
been at work there for some time and the
reports on what is being accomplished are
not only most flatteringto Capt. oss, but
indicate th tht he 24-foot channel, at mean
low water, will be completed easily within
the time estimated.
The dredging at this point is partic-
ularly difficult, owing to the fact that
there is a hard, rocky ledge that must be
At present the channel at Trout Creek
shoals is very narrow, and the depth va-
ries from eighteen to twenty-four feet at
mean low water, with a tidal rise of ap-
proximately one and one-half feet.
The work on which Capt. Ross is en-
gaged contemplates dredging the channel
at this point to a uniform depth of twenty-
fourt feet at mean low water, and widen-
ing it to 300 feet. The dredging and rock
removal, covers a distance of about 3,000
feet, measured from the lower end of the
Its completion will require the removal
of about 1,500 cubic yards of rock and
about 75,000 cubic yards of soft material.
And it is that 15,500 cubic yards of rock
that makes the dredging at this point
particularly difficult. Frequent blasting is
necessary and the strain on the dredging
apparatus in sucking up and handling
these broken pieces of rock is unusually
Yet the work here, under Capt. Ross, is
progressing rapidly. and every indication
is that he will complete the work within
the time limit set by the government
when the contract was awarded him, his
bid being the lowest of the four submitted.
The work yet to be done at Dames Point
shoals is to be carried out by the dredge
of the American Dredging Company.
A cut 100 feet wide and twenty-five feet
deep, at mean low water, is to be made
along the northerly and westerly sides,
and then the remaining portion of the
channel cut out. The government: estimate
of the work in cutting the channel, as
stated above, is that 525,000 cubic yards
of material will have to be removed, and
to complete the dredging o f the channel,
to the full width contemplated, will re-
quire the removing of about 385,000 cubic
yards of material.
This is a big contract, but the Atlantic,
judging from the previous records made
by this boat, should complete it easily
within the time limit allowed, and once the
"dredge-that-does-things" begins at Dames
Point, the channel there will be quickly
At the recent meeting of the board of
trade attention was called to the fact that

work was being done primarily for the

slight accident to some of the apparatus
in connection with one of the hoisting lad-

to Study Peonage Stories.
Securing labor, especially of the class
needed for work in the sawmills, turpen-
tine camps, etc., in Florida is a question
that is now engaging the attention of the
business men of the State.
The board of trade has decided to act
in the matter, and will ask the legislature
to establish a Florida immigration bureau,
and if possible, through the co-operation
of other Southern States, maintain agen-
cies in the old country, through which the
best class of immigrants can be secured.
When the naval stores men meet here
next month, the labor question will be
one of paramount importance, and it will
be thoroughly canvassed in all of its
phases. The scarcity of labor competent
to do the work required has been respon-
sible, it is stated for the shortage this
year, and, recognizing that labor must be
secured, the operators will endeavor to
reach some plan for solving the difficulty.
The stories told in the North by men
claiming to have been brutally treated
by those employing them in Florida have
complicated the problem and it is found
to be unusually difficult to bring laborers
from the North.
These stories, concerning which so much
has been printed in nthe North recently,

Hodges & O'Hara, with peonage. Their
stories were quickly told, and, it is under-

The operators have given him every facil-

a fair and impartial investigation and re-

and, when published in a magazine with
wide circulation, do much to counteract
what they allege are the exaggerated
stories told in the daily press reports by
men returning from Florida.
One turpentine man, who returned yes-
terday from a visit to North Carolina, in
discussing the labor question, said, among
"The trouble has been greatly due to
the fact that the men set to us were a

The steamer Nicaragua, of the new Nas-
sau line, left port Saturday afternoon for
Nassau and lavana with her second cargo
since the establishment of line the last
W. A. Jones, traffic manager of the line,
said tha t4he new line was doing a won-
derful busines-: that the Nicaragua had
taken on a solid cargo and was compelled
to leave a third of a cargo behind until
her next trip.
This is truly encouraging, not only to
the manager of the line, but to the citi-
zens of Jacksonville in general. The mer-
chants who came up on the Nicaragua
from Nassau last week were delighted with
Jacksonville as a city and with the excel-
lent opportunities offered them in securing
their .ools from the many large wholesale
houses in this city.
So well pleased e ldwre they that they
at once placed large orders for goods, which
were shipped on the Nicaragua. From the
present indications the manager of the line
will Ie compelled to charter another ship
before the winter sets In.
The Nicaragua carried a cargo from here
valued at $37,000. It included lumber, fer-
tilizer, shingles and general merchandise
for Nassau and Havana. The frtillser
cargo alone was 6,000 bags, valued at
35,000. This went to Havana.
The cargo to Nassau was composed of
Irish potatoes, grits, wrapping paper,
boxes of marble, drums of gasoline, boxes
of candy, 5,000 red brick, tubs of butter,
boxes of cheese, 70,000 shingles, 24,00
feet o flumber, 36 mattresses, buggies, har-
ness and many other items of freight.
In addition to the excellent freight bus-
iness done by this line, the passenger bus-
iness is excellent. On the trip up from
Nassau the Nicaragua brought seven pas-
sengers, most of them being merehnts
whoc ame to purchase goods.
The postoffice department reports a large
quantity of mail for Nassau, played aboard
the ship. This is the second lot of mail
carried by the Nicaragua siace she has

WANTS MEETING PLACE CHANGED.
Industrial Record, Jacksonville, Fla.
Dear Sir: You ask all operators for
factors and operators who were seen here
this week, expressed their belief that this
would be the most important convention
in the history of the Association.
Conditions which surround the industry
at the present time are somewhat simi-
lar to those conditions which led to the
organisation of the Association, forcing
the operators to get together as a means
of mutual protection. At that time the
labor problem was paramount, and the
prices which were received for spirits and
rosin were such as to demand a regulation
of the market. While the prices are
better today than they were at that time,
the labor conditions have become worse.
In fact, it was stated here Wednesday
by an extensive naval stores manufac-
turer that the conditions at the present
time were even worse for the operator
than they were when the organization of
the Turpentine Operators' Association was
"Those who read the prices of naval
stores," the operator continued, "see that
they are better than they were several
years ago, but do they take into consid- their views, I wish to ask you to try all

The Need of Immigration DImandr the Establishment of an Immi-
gration Bureau for Florida,
That Florid is in great need of immigra-
tion has been determined by every con-
nection with the various industries and
enterprises of the State; that the demand
for immigration is greater today than it
has ever been in the past, is a fact which
is also apparent on every hand.
In lose touch with the many and lead-
ing enterprises of Florida and acquiring a
knowledge of all conditions surrounding
each, The Weekly Industrial Record is
convinced that the resolution recently
adopted by the Jacksonville Board of
Trade will be endorsed by like bodies and
by all of the business men of Florida.
There exists an active demand for an
immigration bureau in Florida, with an
appropriation which would make the bu-
reau of use. The resolution in question
ealls for a liberal appropriation and the
gentleman who proposed it, .has studied
the question sufficiently to know that a
few thousand dollars will be inadequate to
cover the demands of the situation, in the
event that a competent bureau of immigra-
tion is established.
It is a fact worth consideration at this
time, that all of the other States of the
United States and particularly the South
have been making adequate appropriations
for the past decade in order to induce
immigration, and during that time Florida
has done practically nothing. Some of
the counties, tired of waiting on their
State, have taken the bull by the horns
and some ofthem have been doing a good
work along this line. There is hardly a
doubt that Florida has lost thousands who
would have been desirable settlers had the
proper effort been made to get them here
and to interest them after they had arrived.
That there shall be a campaign waged
in the interest of this important question
throughout the State and that it shall re-
ceive the attention of all of the political
and industrial bodies previous to the meet-
ing of the Florida legislature, The Weekly
Industrial Record has undertaken the work
of heading the movement in the interest of
immigration, by working along the lines
indicated by the Jacksonville Board of
Trade and by making an effort to bring
the matter to the attention of the people
in all parts of Florida.
The Weekly Industrial Record will, while
waging this campaign, be guided by, and
and will seek the advice and opinions of
the leading men throughout Florida, both
as to the importance of the scheme pro-
posed and as to the best and most desirable
methods to put it into effect.
In order to secure the best and most
competent opinion from the Jacksonville
Board of Trade, a representative of the In-
dustrial Record sought an interview with
Mr. Edwin Brobston, the member of that
body who introduced and spoke to the
resolution on the day of its passage. Mr.
Brobston took a wide range in discussing
the question and said:
"There is a great deal more to this issue
than there appears to be included in that
little resolution which went through at the
last meeting of the Jacksonville Board of
Trade. In the first place, the endorsement
of the Jacksonville Board of Trade is only
a starter. While the Jacksonville Board
of Trade is a large and an influential body,
and while any declaration which that body
may make on matters of industrial or po-
litial policy, will have its weight, it must
be borne in mind that the active co-opera-
tion of the people throughout the State,
and especially the business men, is essen-
the question and said:
"When I introduced the resolution at the
last meeting of the Jacksonville Board of
Trade, I did so after mature study and
a careful consideration of every feature of
the demand for an immigration bureau
of the character which I mention. I believe
that I know about as well as any man
in this State that there is an active de-
mand for more people in Florida and for
the entire South, as to that matter. I
have been in all parts of the State, have
interests in the various sections and I
know how those interests have suffered for
the want of people with which to operate,
and I know that in every part of the
State there are a great many industries
and enterprises already established which
suffer for want of competent help, while
there are countless opportunities to lay
before the people of the world in order
that they may be induced to come to
Florida and join in the work of developing
one of the most favored sections of the
"My ideas in reference to an immigration
bureau are not confined to Ithe sole effort
or desire to bring to Florida competent
help for the sawmill, the naval stores
farm, the mine or the other established
industries. What I advocate is a general
immigration, covering the features I men-
"lst. There are thousands of acres of
undeveloped land in the State of Florida
which ought to be under cultivation.
There is every reason to believe that were
the proper parties located on same it would
be producing wealth for the State, instead
of paying taxes without returns.
"2nd. The character of the population
of Florida and the success which strangers
have made here in a comparatively short
time, demonstrates that there are thous-
ands of opportunities here for those who
are inclined to establish themselves in
to work faithfully and hard to that end.
There is room and really a demand for a
great many manufacturing plants in this
State to utilize the products which are
every year going to waste in the fields.
Canning factories, furniture factories,
wood works, wheelwright shops, and things
of that character can be established here
and be made to pay if they are in the
hands of the proper parties at the start.
"3d. The farmers of Florida have dem-
onstrated that there are great opportuni-
ties in this State for general farming and
that there are no failures where the proper
efforts are put forth. The many and
valuable orange groves of South Florida,
pecan orchards, etc., demonstrate that
there are great advantages awaiting the
settlers who prefer to cast their fortunes
with and occupy their time in following
"4th. The naval stores farms, the saw-
mills, the phosphate mines and the gen-
eral farms are in need of labor and good
wages are always paid for this character
of work. The time has passed when the
negro was competent to handle all of
these industries from the standpoint of ac-
tive labor. These industries have out-
grown the negro population, and it is a
deplorable fact that the negro is turning
from these avenues of industry and sup-
port to lives of inactivity, shiftlessness and that we were stopping to figure with each
laziness. This and the other Southern other as to what we have lost by not fol-

THE INCREASE IN UNDESIRABLE
It seems probable that sooner or later
Congress will be compelled to enact some
radical modification in the immigration
laws that are admitting at present hordes
of uneducated and nearly penniless for-
eigners into this country, who, after a
residence of five years under the folds of
Old Glory, are graduated into the proud
elass of American citizenship with all the
power and prerogative that this implies.
The laws need amending for, with the
decrease of native born citizens, we are
constantly recruiting our voters with the
worst possible element of foreign agita-
tors who are coming to this country with
a universal sentiment to be aginn what
is," and which they lose no time in putting
into active practice after their arrival. It
is this most undesirable element that, in
nine times out of ten, asserts itself per-
niciously in periods of social disturbances
and in industrial crises, and its existence
leads to abnormal police and military con-
ditions to suppress riot and disorder. The

THE COMING CONVEY TION.
As the time for holding the next con-
vention of the Turpentine Operators' As-
sociation approaches interest in the Sixth
annual meeting of that great organization
is becoming intense. There are many reas-
sons why the coming convention should be
the most important in the history of the
Association and these reasons are becom-
Information has been received from all
sections of the turpentine belt tb the ef-
fect that the operators were manifesting

As a matter of course the labor prob-
lem is to constitute the paramount is-
sue to be diseused at this convention, but
the market developments of the past few
days would indicate that the regulation of

There are a great many other matters
which are to be considered and there is
every reason why every member of the
association and others interested in the
production or marketing of naval stores
should be in attendance. The coming to-
gether of these creators of wealth will be
an event of importance to this city and to
look after their entertainment there is
to be adequate arrangements made by
the people of Jacksonville.
Those who attend the next session of the
Turpentine Operators' Association are as-
sured that they are to have a good time
and that the city of Jacksonvile is to be
at their disposal.
If there ever was a time in the history
of this State when an appeal for an apro-
priation to equip and properly maintain an
immigration bureau ought to be heeded,
that time is now. When this question re-
ceived the endorsement ofthe Jacksonville
Board of Trade last week, the movement
looking to the establishment of a compe-
tent bureau of immigration for this state
was put under way. Now that the busi-
ness interests of the leading city of Flor-
ida have declared in favor of an adequate
appropriation for this purpose, it is be-
lieved that like bodies in all parts of the
state will join Jacksonville and that when
the next legislature meets there will be
appeals from a great many sections of Flor-
ida. There is every reason why the next
legislature should make the appropriation
sought for. In the face of all the argu-
ments which have been or which are to
be advanced, it is believed that the effort
is to be a success.
Having the best interests of the indus-"
trial forces of this state in view and see-
ing the great and the urgent necessity for
bringing more people to Florida to take
part in the development of a great state,
The Industrial Record will do all in its pow-
er to assist in this movement and during
the time intervening between now and the
next session of the legislature, will wage
an active campaign for the establishment
of an immigration bureau for Florida and
an adequate appropriation for maintaining
The Record is in a position to know the
great need for the bringing of good peo-
ple to this state. We are and have been
in close touch with the leading industries
and enterprises in this state and that there
is a great demand for more laborers, for
more farmers and for other classes has
been fully demonstrated in the past and
is being demonstrated daily. We believe
that something ought to have been done
several years ago, but we know that it is
not too late now. If the next legislature
will make an appropriation of $50,000 it
will bring rich reward. The Record be-
lieves that such an appropriation would
meet with the endorsement of Governor
Broward. The Governor comes from that
element in Florida's citizenship which has
been taking an active part in the indus-
trial development of the State, and we are
confident that he knows the needs of his
state along these lines.
On another page of this issue Mr. Brob-
ston discusses with The Record the need
of immigration and gives some good and
practical reasons why the next legislature
ought to do something along the lines indi-
cated. As Mr. Brobston inaugurated this
movement within the Board of Trade,
The Record has taken occasion to place his
views before the people of the state.

There would be notable additions in par-
ticular to the Russian, Italian and Polish
colonies, which, counting both the foreign-
born and their children, numbered respec-
tively 245,52 and 218,918 in 1900. The
character of the immigration is such, too,
as to increase the congestion in certain
districts. It was shown in an analysis of
the returns that over 57 per cent of the
population of Manhattan Island lived on
about 30 per cent of its area.
This sort if immigrant is generally not
the sober, industrious and ambitious cit-
izen to whom this country offers a hearty
welcome. We have every inducement to
offer the industrious foreign peasant who
comes to America to make a legitimate
fortune and determined to make of himself
a true citizen and to help in creating the
natural destines of this country. Intelli-
gent labor is welcomed in al sections. In
a recent article to the Manufacturers'
Record, Col. C. P. Goodyear, of Brunswick,
"Ten per cent of our spindles are idle
for the want of labor. How long shall we
continue to build new textile mills, vitally
necessary to continued Southern develop-
ment, under such conditions?
"The lumber mills and camps of the
South are run on about two-thirds time,
the world needing the lumber and timber
at high prices. How shall development
continue here? The same conditions are
true in the naval stores industry. There
are hundreds of thousands of horse-power
in our rivers to be transformed into elec-
trical power and transmitted to our man-
ufacturing centers, at the Yadkin River
and elsewhere, but only about one-third
the necessary labor is obtainable, and At
obtained by robbing the farm. Railroad
construction of new roads and double
tracking of old roads demand an army of
men not obtainable.
"Cities like Chattanooga, Memphis, At-
lanta, New Orleans, with ample capital for
building, are halted in progress by want
of labor. The tunnel under Lookout Moun-
tain and large expenditures in progress at
Ducktown and throughout all the mineral
district of the South are halting for want
of the one essential that nothing-no la-
bor-saving devices-can replace, namely,
"Millions of acres of glorious farm lands
admirably suited to diversified agriculture
are unimproved, and not for want of capi-
tal, but for want of labor."
And so it is in all parts of the United
States, we need the industrious citizen,
but not the rioter and trouble-maker.
Congress must take this matter up and
discriminate between the desirable citizen
and the outcast from other shores.

promoters and proprietors. The new in-
dustry will be located at the corner of
10th avenue and Aragon street, where a
force of men is now engaged in getting
the machinery installed and it is the in-
tention to have the plant in full operation
not later than Sept. 1 next.
The plant will employ an average of 30
men the year round and most of these men
will be skilled mechanics. It is therefore
easy to see that the payroll alone of the
new industry will institute a matter of
some importance in the business life of the
A. H. Baker, a member of the firm of
M. A. Baker & Co., is now in Pensacola
directing the work and he will-have charge
of the business when it is established. Mr.
Baker and his brother, M. A. Baker, have
for years operated the largest plant of this
kind in the South, the Brunswick Copper
Works. They literally grew up in the
business, their father having been in the
same business before them and they are
known all over the southern country, or
wherever the turpentine industry exists.
The great development of the turpentine
industry in Pensacola's trade territory
has induced the Messrs. Baker to estab-
lish a plant here for the purpose of sup-
plying a trade which they have previously
supplied from Brunswick and which they
expect to extend to considerable propor-
tions from this point.
The establishment of this new industry
in Pensacola has a double significance. It
not only means that much more business
for the Deep Water City, but it illustrates
the fact that Pensacola is the natural dis-

for the past several days. Factors are Interrogatories Sent to Shippers, Mill Men,

freaky, but claim that it will have a good The special sub-committee appointed to
effect and there does not appear to be revise the list of interrogatories that are
any reason for believing that the reaction to be submitted to th sawmill men, the
will be sufficient to force prices lower than shippers, the railway companies and the
they were when the sudden advance oc-steamship lines, met yesterday morning
and went over the list of questions that
had been submitted by Mr. Gorge R. De-
Comparatively few changes were made)
On or two questions, which were believed
to be of little moment were eliminated
and one or two added. The most impor-
tant of those added were the questions pro-
vided for in the resolutions of Mr. D. T.
Gerow, regarding unfulfilled orders, the
questions being designed to ascertain, with
exactness, th number of orders, the portion
of each order now at the railway termi-
nals, the portion already loaded on cars,
the portion still on the skids at the mills,
and the amount yet to be sawed.
The questions will be forwarded at
once, and the committee is particularly
anxious that they be answered promptly,
as it is hoped that all work connected with
this freight congestion can be adjusted pre-
vious to the meeting of the board of trade
The committee will meet again Wed-
nesday morning, and, if possible, will tab-
ulate its report at that time.
Th special committee of the board of
trade, which is investigating the present
congestion, desires to make its report to
the board as accurate as possible, and is
sparing no pains in making up this report.
Major J. S. Fairhead, chairman of the
committee, has made a personal inspection
of the railroad terminals, the wharves,
etc., and has closely questioned every one
whom he believed to be in a position to
give him any information on the condi-
tions, as they exist He is now busy pre-
paring his report, which will be submitted
to the board of trade in writing.
The findings of the sub-committee will
be incorporated in this report, if replies
to the interrogatories are received in time,
either as a part of the body of the report
itself, or will be appended thereto, for the
information of the board of trade.
Wood alcohol is now generally made in
rectangular iron chambers or ovens set in
brickwork and provided with large doors
at one end and three or more delivery
pipes at the other, which lead to the
condensers. The ovens are usually 27 feet
long, 6 feet wide, and 7 feet high inside.
Railis are laid upon the floor by which
steel cars loaded with cordwood may be
run in. These ears hold about 2% cords
of wood, and there are generally two to
an oven. There are ovens, however, that
will receive as many as four cars at one
time. The ovens are heated by natural
Ias, oil or other fuel to a very high tem-
perature, which effects distillation in about
24 hours. The moisture from the wood
finds its way through the pipes into the
condenser, and the wood is reduced to
charcoal. The cars containing the char-
coal, when withdrawn from the heated
ovens, are run itno iron sheds and allowed
to cool gradually.

promoters, it isbelieved that the road will
be constructed within a short time. The
