The Industrial Record Arousing interest in an Effort to Solve the
Perplexing Labor Problem.
S The Record has received substantial evi-
dence during the past week that it is
arousing a great deal of interest in the
eLort to solve the labor problem, and we
can see from present indications that the
operators in all pa4ts of the turpentine
belt are bent on making some sacrifices for
the immediate future if necessary, to
bring about a more settled and a better
condition of affairs.
Several letters have been received dur-
ing the past few days in reference to this
matter. All of them have the proper ring
and are from men of weight and influence
in the Turpentine Operators' As oelation.
The fact that this interest is apparent on
the eve of the meeting of the convention
is an excellent indication that there is to
be something done and that the operators
wil find their attendance upon the next
meeting of the convention of great value.
The following is one of the letters re-
ceived in reference to the labor question,
by one of the foremost operators of the
"DeFuniak Springs, Aug. 16, 1906.

are working up interest and enthusiasm in
the approaching convention of the Tur-

DREDGE ATLANTIC OH TO DAMES'
The dredge boat Atlantic, of the North
American Dredging Company, has finished
her work on the south side of the river
and will be towed to Dames Point by the
tug boat Admiral Dewey, where she will
commence her work on the government
Since the Atlantic went to work in filling
in the Dixieland park site on the south
side, some three weeks ago, she has missed
btu one day's work, and that on account
of a small break in her machinery. She
has been working 24 hours a day and has
accomplished a magnificent piece of work.
The work to be done at Dames' Point
shoals is to be carried out by the dredge
Atlantic. A cut 100 feet wide and twenty-
four feet deep, at; mean low water, along
the northerly and westerly sides, is first
to be made and then the remaining por-1
tion of the channel cut out. The govern-
ment estimate of the work in cutting the
channel is that 525,000 cubic yards of ma-
terial will have to be removed, and to com-
plete the dredging of the channel to the
full width contemplated, will require the
removing of about 385,000 more cubic yards
Trout Creek shoals, now the shallowest
place between the city and the sea, is
being rapidly deepened. Capt. R. G. Ross,
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 flattering to COpt. Ross
but indicate that the 24-foot channel, at
mean low water, will be completed easily
within the time estimated.
The dredging at his point is particularly
difficult, owing to the fact that there is a
hard, rocky ledge that must be removed.
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 twen-
ty-four 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 15,500 cubic yards of rock, and
about 75,000 cubic yards of soft material.
And it is that 15,500 cubic yards of rock

and it is believed she will be ready for

With the work at Dames Point, by the

FIRED FATAL SHOT AND CRIED:
"YOU'VE DISGRACED MY WIFE."
Regarding the unfortunate killing of an
innocent man last Sunday, the Ocala Star
"Our city was shocked and saddened
Sunday to hear of the death of Mr. R. E.
Wishart, who was the victim of one man's
terrible mistake, and perhaps, another
"Mr. Wishart, who was following the
business of a tie contractor, had a camp
at Eihren, Pasco county, and his two
daughters, Misses Jennie and Annabelle,
were with him. The your ladies needed
some dental work done, and Mr. Wis-
hart took them to San Antonio. Sunday
morning they were in the office of the den-
tist, a man named Nobles One of the
young ladies was in tue dentist's chair,
and Mr. Wishart was sitting near the door.
"A turpentine operator named Burton,
who had a grievance against the dentist,
came to the door and asked if Mr. Nobles
was in. Mr. Wishart replied that he was,
and Burton, thinking it was Nobles who
spoke, fired at him with a shotgun, the
load striking Mr. Wishart in the body near
the heart, killing him instantly.
"As Burton fired he exclaimed, 'Nobles,
you have disgraced my wife.'
"Friends at San Antonio at once tele-
graphed to Mrs. Wishart in this city, and
Mr. Tom Wishart in Citra, and both went
down on the afternoon train. They were
accompanied by Mr. Vernie Roberts, who
took a burial casket and attended to the
funeral, which took place at Sutherland
"Mr. Wishart. was a native of North
Carolina. He came to Florida some eight
years ago, was a turpentine operator for
a while and then took up the tie busi-
ness. His operations in this line were
extensive and necessitated his being at his
camp in Pasco county most of the time.
He was in Ocala quite often the past year
or so, and made many friends by his kind
and courteous manners.
"Mr. Wishart laves a widow, formerly
Mrs. Mary A. Norwood, of this city, to
whom he was married only a few months
ago, and three sons and two daughters,
the children of his first marriage. His
oldest son, Mr. Karl Wishart, is a tur-
pentine operator in Mississippi and though
wired to immediately, will not be able
to reach here before to-morrow. His see-
ond son, Toni Wishart, was at Citra, and
with the youngest boy, Waldo, aged 9,
and Mrs. Wishart, went to San Antonio
on yesterday afternoon's train. Mr. Wis-
barts' two daughters, Misses Jennie and
Annabelle, were with him when he was
killed. The distress of these two girls
at having their father shot down without
warning before their eyes can he more
easily imagined than described.
"Mr. Wishart %as 54 years of age. He
was a Mason."
CITY COUNCILMEN DISCUSS THE LA-
Prior to the meeting of the city council
Tuesday night there was some discussion
among the members as to the advisability
of passing a "vagrancy" ordinance, in or-
der to do away with so many worthless
characters, white and black, loafing around
the streets of the city.
One of the members of the council point-
ed out that while contractors for various
kinds of work are complaining of the scarc-
ity of laborers, there are a large number
of whites and negroes constantly seen
loafing around the city.
The councilman said that he had en-
quired why th work of constructing the
large sewer on Main street was progress-
ing so slowly and had been informed by
Contractor Bryan that one of ihe princi-
pal causes was the inability to secure la-
borers. He said that the same complaint
was made by other contractors in various
During the discussion it was pointed out
that the city has ample law against va-
grancy and that the State law, enacted by
the Legislature of 1905, was quite wide
in its scope, but tile trouble appears to be
that neither law is enforced..
Then there was some discussion as to
why the laws are not nforcd. One mem-
ber of the council thought that it was be-
cause the mayor had not instructed the
chief of police to have the vagrancy law
enforced. Another contended that it was
not necessary for the mayor to direct that
thle law le enforced; that he chief of po-
lice should enforce all such laws without
waiting for special instructions from the
It was finally agreed that if the vagran-
cy laws are to be enforced tle police should
ie given some encouragement in the way
ol convictions and sentences. It was point-
ed out that occasionally. when tlie police
do round up a number of vagrants, they
are either discharged or let off with a fine
ol $5, which means only seven days in
jail. Also, that a jail sentence, with the
city jail at Raspllerry park in its present
condition, has no terrors for the average
vaurant, for lie can leave whenever he
As to the non enforcement of the State
vagrancy law, that is a matter that the
city authorities have nothing to do with.
But it is a fact that now and then the
police and county authorities have co-ope-
rated and rounded up gangs of professional
loafers and dead-heats. They have been
held on a charge of vagrancy by a justice
of the peace. but very few convictions
have ever been -ecuredl in the criminal
Ionrt of record.
Whether the trouble is that county so-
licitor does not care to bother % ith the
prosecution of these cases or that it is
too hard to prove a charge of vagrancy
to -s4eure conviction, is not known, but
there have been numerous instance- where
ierson.s charged with vagrancy have not.
lIben convicted and where others have not
even been tried. It may be that the coun-
ty solicitor is too busy occupied with
"trust busting," but there is no doubt that
the vagrancy law in not being enforced.
That the enforcement of the vagrancy
la wia having a good effect in Savannah,
and other cities in Georgia, is shown by
tle statement of employers of labor. 1hey
claim that since there has been an attempt
to enforce the vagrancy law they are hav-
ing no trouble in securing an abundance of
labor, whereas in the past they have found
it necessary to scour the country districts
to get enough men to carry on their work.
The following from the Savannah Morn-
ing News of yesterday gives one employ-
er's views on this subject:
"*Since the vagrancy laws have been
enforced it has helped the labor situation
wita us very materially,' said Mr. C. H.
Willcox yesterday, the president of the
Savannah Guano Company, which employs
a large number of laborers. "More hands
are now seeking work from us than our
"For a number of years past at. this
season of the year we have been in the
habit of supplying a considerable portion
of our labor requirements from the country
tributary to this city. This time, so far,
we have not had to do this. On the con-
trary, we have found it necessary to send
word to these country laborers that we
could not give them employment now if
they came, as we had not a vacancy to be
filled. We have had to send this infor-
mation to them, as they are so persist-
ent now calling upon us for work.
'Tlhe conditions of crops at this season
in some sections near us being largely a
failure, is forcing many more country la-
Il'ers to seek work away from home than
is usual, and I feel confident that the sit-
uation as it now exists is sure to relieve
the labor conditions in this city very ma-
terially, particularly when this is aug-
mnented by tile beneficial effects derived
from the enfurcemients of the vagrancy
SEVENTEEN COUNTIES ENTER FOR
FLORIDA STATE FAIR.
Tampa" Aug. *22.-So persistently and
effectively has the campaign for the en-
listment of counties in the State Fair
movement been pushed during the last two
months by President T. J. L. Brown and
his co-workers that a total of seventeen
counties are already enrolled for partici-
pation in the departments of exhibition
and this number will be added to at the
next meeting dates of the boards of coun-
ty ciommiiissioners of the various counties
To date there are enrolled a larger num-
her of counties than have ever before par-
ti,'iiatle in a Southern State fair, not ex-
cepting the Florida State Fair of last year,
andl the counties participating will show
to even better advantage the wonderful
resources of thl State. They represent ab-
solutely every section-East Florida, West
Florida, Middle Florida and South Florida.
Assurances have been received that other
counties, as alsve intimated, will make
aplpropriations and appoint commissioners
to solicit exhibits at the meeting of their
commissioners in September.

that will participate is attributable to a
number of reasons. Among these is the
fact that the fair of last year proved an
immense and satisfactory success, whereas
many doubted whether the success desired
would be achieved. Another reason is
found in President Brown's excellent plan
for dividing the State into four sections
and offering large prizes for the counties
of each. In this way alone can each see-
tion be placed on an absolutely equal basis,
owing to the fact that Florida is such a
large State and one which boasts of a
greater diversity of products than any
other State in the Union.
In a recent issue of the Times-Union it
was stated that Hillsborough county would
compete for none of the prizes offered.
This was a partial error, which is ex-
plained as follows: Hillsborough county
will compete for the various county prizes
offered, but will not compete for the sec-
tional prize of $500 offered to the banner
county of each of the four sections of the
State, nor for the grand prize of $1,00 for
the banner county of the State. Nothing
could be fairer than this decision of the
county in which the fair is held. While
Hillsborough county gives its producers
an opportunity of making expenses in-
curred by exhibiting, yet it will not com-
pete with sister counties in the contest
for the large banner pries.

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 advan age 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 commit nts 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-
ville (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.

Highest Prices in History of Industry at
Pensacola, Aug. 20.-Never in the his-
tory of the naval stores industry has prices
ruled as high or the demand been so
strong at this season of the year, as they
Turpentine has been holding around six-
ty cents for a lengthy period, but it is
only recently that the various grades of
rosins began to climb so as to attract
notice. What is known as WW, the high-
est grade of rosin, is bringing today
$5.55 and $5.60, a price never before at-
ained in the history of the trade, while C
and the lower grades are selling here at
$3.55 and $3.60, a price which a few years
ago could not be obtained for the higher
grades, and which was never dreamed of
for the very lowest grades of the prod-
A prominent naval stores operator and
factor, in speaking of the high market to-
day, stated that it was due to two things
-an extraordinary consumptive demand
and a fight between the exporters to ob-
tain the product, and that as long as
either of these conditions continued the
prices would continue high. He gave it as
his opinion that naval stores would in
future call for better prices, and would
continue to remain around the present
quotations. The high prices are very
beneficial to Pensacola and all the sur-
rounding section for the reason that two-
thirds of the naval stores sent to market
now comes from this section, the Georgia
forests having been worked out. The ope-
rators are reaping a harvest at present
quotations, but they too are being com-
pelled to pay higher prices for everything
they obtain. Timber is very high and
labor is a scarce article and must be
well paid, having advanced fully forty per
cent during the past five years.
Were the operator to sell his product of
today at the prices that ruled two years
ago he would lose money, but as it is he is
reaping a harvest. Thousands of barrels
are shipped out of Pensacola each month
to foreign ports by the big exporting firms,
chiefly the S. P. Shotter Company and the
J. R. Saunders Company. The latter only
a few months ago entered the exporting
trade in opposition to the Shotter Com-

HARNESS AND SADDLE FACTORY.
American Oak Leathre Tanning Co. Estab-

The American Oak Leather Tanning Co.
have added another department to their
leather concern. They are manufacturing
harness and saddlery of all kinds. Expert
labor from the North has been engaged and
they are equipped to turn out goods of
the finest workmanship. The American
Oak Leather Tanning Co. is capitalized at
$100,000, all of which stock is owned by
local capitalists. C'apt. C. E. Garner is
president of the company, Arthur F. Perry
secretary and (. H. Mann general manager.
Ever since the organization of this com-
pany and the establishment of their large
tannery there have been improvements
and extensions made, but it was not
thought that anything of the magnitude

The harness and saddle factory is to be
the largest thing of its kind in the South-
east and is to give employment to a great
many skilled laborers. In addition to this
the company will travel a number of men,
it being their aim to have representatives
in all parts of the South. The members
of the company claim that they have
given the matter considerable study and
that they are convinced that they will
meet with liberal success. The officers of
tle company are men who have been suc-
cessful in every line of business in which
they have been engaged and it is reason-
able to opposee that hey will make a great
success of this new enterprise.
lBeing where they can secure hides of
nearly every description used in the man-

pany will have the advantage over some of
those who are engaged in the business in
other parts of the United States.

Since last Wednesday there has been a
great deal of lumber forwarded from Jack-

cleared at a rapid rate.
With improvements in the yards in the
way of handling the freight, the forward-

their lumber north. There is still a large

SEN8D THE RECORD YOUR VIEWS.
A general exchange of ideas; suggestions
and opinions on the mater of the regu-
lation of labor, the regulation of pries,
etc., would be a pretty good thing to have
in stock before the coming meeting of the
Turpentine Operators' Asociation. A
great deal of good may be accomplished
by this exchange of views in advance of
the convention, by giving to the members
of the association something upon which
to work and to think about previous to
their gathering hes
In this issue of The Record we present
some of the ideas of members of the As-
sociation. Others we have and will pub-
lish in our next issue. But while we have
been grateful for what has been received,
we have ndt on our desk a sufficient num-
ber to lead to a general exchange of ideas
by suggestions. We regard this matter of
great importance and would like to have
for publication in our next issue at least
fifty concise, and briefly prepared letters
setting forth the ideas and suggestions of
the writers on matters which are to come
to the attention of the next convention.
In this way an intelligent exchange of
views will be had, and by referring to the
official organ of the association each mem-
ber will come to the convention prepared
to advocate some plan, or at least know-
ing the views of some of his fellow men-
The columns of The Record are open to
every man interested in naval stores in
any way. We have space which we would
like to devote in this way, and will be
glad to print your views. You can have
your name mentioned, or if you prefer,
we can withhold the name of any writer.
Send us a good letter for publication in
our next issue. You can be of great service
to the industry if you will accept this offer.
THE SCARCITY OF LABOR.
The East Coast Railway has dodgers
east broadcast over the State seeking la-
borers and offering board and $1.50 per
day. The turpentine and phosphate men
are doing likewise, while in the various
cities the demand for household help is
something fierce. Industries are increas-
ing and there would be more provided
labor could be obtained. A majority of the
negro race won't work and those that pre-
tend to, in the majority of cases, prove
unreliable in the extreme, therefore they
are being counted out and a cry arises for
immigration. This matter is most serious
and a State immigration board is an im-
perative necessity for the welfare of the
State at large.-Gainesville Elevator.
In no part of the State is the scarcity of
labor felt more than in Dade county. It
is true there is a genuine scarcity of
available help, though there are a few
of that class of men here who promised
themselves long ago never to earn a dol-
lar by the sweat of their brow. In the
trucking season large and bountiful crops
are materially deterred and made a fail-
ure because sufficient labor cannot be ob-
tained to work and gather it. Children are
taken from school and women and girls go
to the fields to assist in the cultivation
and harvesting of the product, and all be-
cause it is impossible to get sufficient
Good jobs are available both on the rail-
road extension and in the city. Contrac-
tors frequently have to import labor in
order to keep abreast of the building ac-
tivity, and this, with strong, able-bodied
men hanging around habitually idle. There
can be but one solution to the situation,
and that is immigration, but it must be
of the right kind. Men who will work
will be a boon to the county; those who
will not, a detriment. The sooner this
problem is solved the sooner will the agri-
cultural and commercial pursuits of the
State and the South be facilitated.-Miami
The same cry comes from every city,
town, village or locality in Florida. At
the last session of the Legislature very
stringent vagrant laws were passed, duly
signed up and became statute laws, which
are largely being treated with contempt,
as are prohibition laws, laws regulating
carrying secret arms, etc. Florida has
ample laws governing these abuses and
Floridians generally should see to it that
they are more fully enforced. Let Florid-
ians create the strongest sentiment imagi-
nable against the evils now so commonly
complained of, and we believe the proper
remedy can be applied and things along
these lines at least made some better. At
any rate, let each community give the
"gentlemen of leisure" to understand that
they must get busy and earn an honest
living for themselves or they will be made
to work for the State in building good
roads. It can be done if it is gone at in
the right manner.-Tallahassee True Dem-
Florida needs farmers as well as com-
mon laborers, and it is to be hoped that
the Legislature will provide the means and
the State authorities the method of secur-
ing immigration from the West and North-
west, rather than from the slums of Eu-
rope or Asia.-Tallahassee True Democrat.

and others saw the necessity of orgaixing fr the purpose of protecting the interests
of the naval stores operators throughout the naval stores belt.
Another statement made by Mr. Covington and one which ought to be seriously
considered by every operator is:
"Conditions today are even worse than they were when we frst organied, and
consequently need our positive and earnest attention more now than they did at that
In impressing upon the Record man the truth of this statement, Mr. Covington
"Labor conditions are much worse than they were several years ago, and are grow-
ing worse so fast, that some of the operators see little if any hope for the future.
Not only has the price of lab(.r been climbing until it has passed all bounds of reason,
but it is climbing yet, and it must be admitted that the operators are applying the
old tactics of recruiting and hampering each other to a great extent. Again, there
are a great many novices in the business at the present time, men who know little
if anything about the industry, and who believe that they must work their timber,
no niater what they will have to pay for labor to do so. My attention has been
called repeatedly in the past to the action of some o fthe new operators in advertising
for labor and in offering all kinds of flattering prices for men. Perhaps they are of
the opinion that after these men have been secured, that they can gradually cut their
wages dou n. Some of us may have tried that racket in the past, but it has never
worked. You can put the wages up. Any novice can do that. But I have yet to see
the old line turpentine operator who could get them down.
"You must bear in mind that there have been some great developments in the
naval stores industry. Under the workings and rules of our organization, prices went
bounding up. We had one or two pretty prosperous years for the operator. But even
during that time we as operators were not prospering to he extent that some seemed
to believe. (reat sums of money were made, but don't you agree with me when I say
that this money, as a rule, was made by buying and selling places, and a general
manipulation of various features of the business outside of genuine operating? Of
course the operators made money for a time, and until the price of timber and labor
went bounding up beyond reason, and far beyond what they can stand, if they will
just stop and consider.
"I saw a statement in the Record the other day from an old Tar Heel operator.
He put it exactly right when he called attention to the fact that the prices of labor
and the prices of timber had a great deal more than kept up with the prices of the
prices of the product. That fellow has been in the business for many years and I guess
he ought to know. At any rate, 1 took his word for it, without figuring, though I did
sit down and figure just a little on my own hook. Figuring on a ten crop farm, I
found that lie was right on a fair margin.
"Now, if this is the case today, what will it be in the ear future? Are we to
sit idly by and see the prices of labor go bounding up and timber becoming scarce and
expensive and do nothing about it?
"Tlle market has been pretty regular during the past few weeks, but we are not
secure. I for one am of the opinion that the Turpentine Operators' Association can
doi more to regulate prices than any other organization, combination, or whatever you
chose to call it. We have the stuff and we ought to at least regulate prices to some
"All these things are to be considered at the next meeting of the Turpentine Ope-
ratois' Association and I want to see evry member who can get here present at that
meeting. I have seen a great many operators and have written to others, urging them
to come. I find that there is a keen interest in the approaching convention and I
believe that the attendance will be larger than it has ever been. I note a feeling of
un:est among the operators, a general dissatisfaction with present conditions and a
genuine disposition to come to this meeting and do what they can to assist in devising
"'\What I want to see in tne columns of Tile Record during the next three issues is
suggestions from the operators. Tell them to give us something to think about in
connection with this labor problem. If we can get a number of them to give their

DECIDED IMPROVEMENT IN REGARD
TO FREIGHT CONGESTION HERE.
The close of last week found the out-
look for a successful solving of the freight
congestion problem brighter han ever be-
fore and, with the arrival of from twenty-
six to thirty vessels, now en route to
Jacksonville, present conditions should be
The special committee of the board of
trade, at its meeting last week, found that
all its business had not ye been rounded
out and that at least one more meeting
will be necessary before the final report
of the chairman, Maj. J. S. Fairhead, can
be prepared for submitting to the board
of trade. A meeting will probably be
called for the latter part of this week, if
not sooner, and the matter again taken
Since the board of trade first took the
matter in hand there has been a most
decided improvement in conditions. The
co-operative spirit between the railroads
and the shippers has been strengthened and
this, with the arrival of chartered ships,
has materially relieved the congestion,
though everything is not yet as it should
One member of the committee, in in-
formally discussing the congestion prob-
lem yesterday, said, among other things:
"While our investigations have not yet
ended and while many statistics must yet
come in before we can get at all the facts,
enough has developed to show that the
trouble does not lie entirely with the ship-

then storing them on the wharves or le

at once placed aboard the receiving vessel.
It has been suggested that this system be

could well be done and the problem would

shipper, be he ever so careful, cannot fore-

SArFORIDS PROSPERITY IS SHOWN
IN CELERY INDUSTRY.
The following letter to the Sanford
Chronicle explains itself:
Editor Chronicle-I herewith hand you
a copy of celery and lettuce statistics
showing number of crates by freight and
the number of crates by express that went
from Sanford. This statement was com-
piled .by Mr. MeArthur, trainmaster of the
Atlantic Coast Line Railway, of this city,
and is correct. I would like to say to
readers of this article who may be con-
templating moving to Sanford and em-
barking in the trucking business, that the
trucker who cultivates three to five acres
is reasonably assured of a good living from
same, and can perform all or nearly all
the labor himself. Independent of the la-
bor question, the large trucker who ope-
rates ten, fifteen, or twenty acres, has the
labor question always before him. There
is one thing certain, that the five-acre
trucker will never plow under his celery
or lettuce for want of labor as was re-
cently done by some of the cotton growers
of Georgia. The artesian wells of San-
ford and vicinity are an inspiration to me
and to watch them spouting their clear,
sparkling stream of pure, healthful water
is to me a very interesting sight. Each
trucker drives his own artesian well, con-
sequently the water for irrigation pur-
poses is municipally owned, as every truck-
er, large or small, owns his own water

IUKPILaTIl PRODUCTION IN THE
In his introductory remarks on the For-
est Administration of the Punjab for the
year 1904-5 the chief secretary states that:
"The observations of the Conservator on
the result of experiments made in the
Kangra Division led lh'm to form an opin-
ion that the process of blazing in order to
extract resin had an inju:ious effect on the
life of the pine, and in defernece to his
representation, the I 'eute:iant-Governor,
whi'e ordering the eont:nuance of the ex-
periments, was obliged to restrict tapping
'to a very considerable degree. In view of
the reduction in the annual yield of resin
entailed by these orders, and of the fact
that crude resin is a more profitable arti-
cle than its nrodueta after distillntian.
The following detailed production sta-
tistics are given in the body of the report:
In connection with the Kangra Division
resin distillery, during the resin season
85,000 blazes were made yielding 7,722
maunds crude resin as compared with 60,-
000 blazes and 4,744 maunds of the previ-
ous year, the out-urn per blaze being thus
3.63 seers, as compared with 3.16 of 1903-4.
The financial statement shows that the
net profit from the commencement of ope-
rations in the financial year 1899-1900 to
the end of June, 1905, was Rs. 56,178, ex-
elusive of the value of stock: The balance
of stock at close of 1904-05 was valued as
follows: Buildings value, Rs. 5,803; crude
resin 1,028 maunls at Rs. 6.8, Rs. 6,682;
colophony 301 maunds at Rs 4.8, Rs. 1,354;
turpentine 946 gallons at Rs. 2, Rs. 1,892;
total, Rs. 15,821.
The average prices realized for these
products during the year were: Crude
resin Rs. 7.2.10 per maund, turpentine Rs.
2.0.5 per gallon, and colophony Rs. 4.6.10
per maund. With reference to the re-
marks in paragraph 46 of the Report for
1903-04, the Conservator during the year
submitted a report on the effect of the tap-
ping operations on the chil pine trees in the
Kangra forests recommending that this
tapping be restricted to trees destined un-
der the working plan to be soon felled.
This was sanctioned by the Lieutenant-
Governor, who ordered, however, a contin-
uance of the tapping of other trees in one
selected forest as a further experiment.
Since, for small quantities, the demand for
crude resin is good, and it can be sold in
this form to better advantage than can
'he extracted products, the distillery at
Nurpur was with Government sanction
closed from April 1, 1905.
