THE NOMINATION OF W. M. TOOMER
FOR PRESIDENT BY MR. BUTHER-
The speech of Mr. P. L. Sutherland in
nominating CoL W. M. Toomer for prei-
dent of the Turpentine Operators' Asso-
ciation was a gem of oratory and fell with
enthusiasm on the convention. Mr. Sutk-
"Mr. President: The declination of the
chair to accept the nomination for re-
election as president of this association,
just tendered by the nominating commit-
tee, makes it necessary for us to go to
the floor of this convention for a candi-
date for president Mr. Chairman, we all
recognize fully the time, capacity, unsel-
fishness, ability and fidelity with which you
have served this association since its birth.
I happened to be present upon the organi-
zation of this association; ht has had my
hearty support since which time up to its
practical development and work to the
present hour; this achievement has been
largely accomplished by and through t1
executive head of this association.
"The object of this association has been
the betterment of the condition of the
turpentine operator; that you have sue-
ceeded, Mr. President, is an acknowledged
fact. The condition of the turpentine
operator has been improved; we desire it
to continue to progress. I feel no hli-
tancy in saying that the work of this asso-
ciation has been one of the most potent
factors in the development of the prospr-
ity of this country that the South ever
"Now that you have decline to serve us
further, Mr. President, we are groping in
the dark for a leader. We had one match-
less leader, the greatest man we ever had;
we loved him, and we loved to do his bid-
ding; he was a born leader; the enemies to
our interests dreaded him; he was a stran-
ger to defeat; when he said 'Come on,
boys, let's do it,' we came as one man,
and our efforts were accomplished ends to
the material betterment of the condition
of the turpentine operator, individually
and collectively. He, too, is gone. You will
serve us no longer; we must have a leader;
a prototype of those whom we have been
glad to follow so far. Mr. Chairman, k
think and believe we have him here on the-
floor of this convention. I know him to be
a man of the greatest sterling worth, in
whom we can repose the utmost confidence
as our chief executive officer; a man to
whom we can give rein and who with our
counsel, I believe, will pilot and lead.us
on to victory; elect him; do not restrain
him; give him your counsel and uphold
his hands upon a final decision; he il a
man who will not jump at conclusions,
but who will act only upon thorough in-
vestigation and then, and then only, for
the benefit and advancement of the irter-
ests of this association; he is a man who
will seek and must have your counsel and
support; give it; he is a man perhaps un-
known to some of you, but he is a born
leader, and we who know him, know him
to be the man of the hour, and we will
make no mistake in electing him presi-
dent of this association.
"Mr. Chairman, I present the name of
Hon. W .M. Toomer, of Jacksonville, as
president of this association. "

A solution of the labor problem has
been offered to the turpentine operators
through the action of the members of the
Turpentine Operators' Association, who
were in attendance upon the session of
Wednesday afternoon, when the report of
a special committee, with slight amend-
ments, was adopted.
That report was made by W. M. Toomer,
D. J. Herring and J. G. Boyd, the commit-
tee appointed by President Covington. The
full report of that committee follows:
"We submit for your consideration
the following resolutions:
"1. Resolved, That each member of
this association deposit with the sec-
retary of the association, and payable
to its order, a sight draf for two hun-
dred and fifty dollars ($ 20.00). for
the following purposes, and to be col-
lected and applied on the following
conditions and in the way hereinafter
"A committee of three shall be ap-
pointed by the president of the asso-
ciation; this committee to be clothed
with authority to hear and determine
all complaints and controversies be-
tween the members of this association
in regard to labor. Complaints shall
be filed in writing with the secretary
of this association, who shall notify
the committee; and thereupon this
committee shall make a thorough in-
vestigation into the complaint and if,
in their opinion, the complaint is well
founded, they shall so notify the see-
retary, who shall thereupon deliver
the draft for $250.00 made by the
operator found at fault, to the treas-
urer of the association, and from the
proceeds of this draft the entire ex-
penses of the committee, including
a per diem of $5.00 per day, shall be
paid, and the net loss sustained by
the complaining operator be paid, and
the balance, if any, of the proceeds
of said draft paid into the treasury
of the association.
"The operator found at fault shall
have the right, upon written notice to
the grievance committee and the pres-
ident of the association, to appeal from
the decision of the grievance commit-
tee and have the controversy heard and
determined by the association at its
next regular session.
The Other Features.
"Be it further resolved, That each
member of this association be furnish-
ed with a printed copy of this resolu-
tion containing a provision for his ac-
ceptance and agreement to be bound
by the terms of this resolution, to be
signed by him and returned to the
"And be it further resolved, That
none of the provisions of this resolu-
tion shall be regarded as binding upon
its members unless same is assented
to by three-fourths of its membership.
"Be it further resolved, That each
of the factorage companies are request-
ed to co-operate with this association
in the enforcement of the letter and
spirit of the foregoing resolutions.
The Wage Scale.
"Resolved, further, That the follow-
ing shall be the scale of prices to be
paid for box cutting, chipping and
dipping during the season of 1907:
"Box cutting, 11/ cents; dipping, 50
to 00 cents per barrel; chipping, 70
to 85 cents per thousand.
0. A. Conventil
"These prices to prevail in all classes
Amendments Are Made.
President Toomer then called for any
discussion the operators might wish on
the report, which was practically the plan
that had been outlined by Col. Toomer
previous to his election as president of the
association, and several amendments were
at once proposed.
Mr. T. C. Cranford, of Valdosta, Ga.,
moved to amend by making the grievance
committee consist of five instead of three
members, though giving three tlhe power
to act; and that their decision be final
and no appeal be allowed to the associa-
tion. Some little discussion followed and
then, when put to vote, the amendment
carried ,only one or two operators voting
Then, on motion, the entire report down
to the wage-scale, but not including that
feature, be adopted. This motion, too,
went through with a rush, none voting
Wage Scale Taken Up.
Then the convention took up the dis-
cussion of the wage-scale feature and Mr.
Cranford moved to amend by making the
price for dipping 45 to 50 cents per barrel
instead of 50 to 60 cents, and the price
for chipping 60 to 70 cents instead of 70
to 85 cents per thousand.
This amendment was, after a lengthy
Mr. Mahaffy then moved, in order that
there might be no misunderstanding, that
only a maximum price be determined upon,
thus allowing the operator to secure his
labor at as low a price as possible. This
was carried, and the maximum for dipping
placed at 60 cents per barrel and the maxi-
mum for chipping at 85 cents per thousand.
A motion was then made that the wage-
scale be adopted, as amended, as a whole.
This was carried almost unanimously, and
the working basis for the endeavor toward
solving the labor problem had been secured.
A great step had been taken and the ope-
rators realizing it, applauded.
The Concluding Features.
Attention had been called to the fact
that this agreement could not be binding
on operators not members of the associa-
tion, and in order to get as many opera-
tors interested as possible, a motion was
made that President Toomer appoint ex-
perienced solicitors to canvass the Georgia-
Florida turpentine belt and induce as many
operators as possible to join the association
and sign the agreement, paying well for
the services of good solicitors. This motion
was unanimously carried.
A resolution was then passed calling
upon the factorage interests to urge their
customers to join the association and sign
this agreement, making it as general among
operators as possible.
In order to avoid any possible litigation
ove:- the question of the payment of for-
feits. the executive committee was in-
structed to investigate this feature and,
if necessary, take steps looking toiardl
the incorpliration of the association.
The secretary was ordered to have cop-
ies of the agreement printed as quickly as
possible and forwarded to the olisrators for
signature, in order that it might be known
whether or not the needed 75 per cent of
the members would sign, thereby making
the agreement valid.
Grievance Committee Named.
President Tocmer then named the griev-
ance committee, in accordance with the
terms of the resolutions adopted, and to
pass upon the guilt or innocence of those
charged with violating the terms of the
This committee consists of W. C. Jack-
son, of DeLand, G. F. Tillman of Bartow,
S. A. Alford of Chipley, R. F. Rogers, of
Lake City, and D. E. Richardson of DeFun-
Then, after the congrtuatulations of Presi-
dent Toomer had been extended to the
operators, adjournment was taken and the
sixth annual convention had ended.
JUST AN INTERESTING INCIDENT OF
THE T. 0. A. CONVENTION.
There was one gentleman present at
the convention who was there determined
to get relief from the present condition of
affairs .which he regarded to be deplorable.
This gentleman was Mr. J. W. Fisher, of
Otter Creek, and he had a great deal to say
in reference to the situation and to the
actions of some of his brother operators
and himself as to the labor matter.
The first hard from Mr. Fisher was when
the resolutions submitted by Mr. O'Hara,
calling for a forfeit of $1,000 were under
consideration. His was one of the most
interesting speeches of the entire after-
noon. rich in plain facts plainly stated, and
abounding in dry wit and humor. He was
constantly interrupted by shouts of ap-
proval and applause, and the plain facts,
forcefully driven home, pleased every one.
Mr. Fisher said, among other things:
"The posting of the forfeit is the great
essential.- If you haven't touched the tur-
pentine operator through his pocket you
haven't touched him at all. You have got
to touch him on his pocketbook.
"Turlentine men have less respect for
each other than any pieces of humanity
that I know of. They go to church and
pray for each other's welfare and then,
on the way home .steal each other's hands.
They go to their lodges and then come
home and entice their neighbors' hands
"I know what I'm talking about now.
I have as good neighbors as anybody has,
Iut they'll come over and steal my hands.
and I'll wake up and find myself without,
help. except a puny. yellow-faced little
woodsman. And what is a man going to
do inder such circumstances?

Addresss of President Covington a Fea-
ture ot the Convention.
When the Tuesday afternoon session of
the Turpentine Operators' Association had
been called to order, President A. D. Cov-
ington delivered his annual address and
this proved to be the feature of the after-
The following is the address in full:
"Another year in the history of our in-
dustry has passed and we are again as-
sembled in this good city of Jacksonville
to which we have been so cordially wel-
comed this morning.
"For the justification of these annual
assemblages for friendly conference you
have but to look at your condition today
as compared with five years ago.
"Whatever we may accomplish or fail to
accomplish by formal resolutions no one
can question the fact that this friendly
mingling and frank exchange of views
draw men together in a bond of sympathy
and union which gives to our industry that
strength which is necessary to guard your
interests and preserve that prosperity
which had its beginning simultaneously
with the organization of this association.
"And as I think of the past of this as-
sociation, one figure stands out more prom-
inently than any other; one who never
tired in his work for it, and who felt that
the strength of this organization and the
welfare of our industry were one. Death
has claimed him since we last met. Never
lived a stronger and truer friend to every
producer than Hugh A. McEachern. He
believed in co-operation and kindly frank-
ness. Let his spirit permeate this meeting
and many of the vexing questions you will
have to consider during the next few hours
will be easily solved.
"And now let me extend first a word of
congratulation on a subject which is a
just matter of pride to this association.
During the past year a wave of protest
has swept over tihe entire country against
the practice of adulterating all marketable
"Be it said to the credit of the turpen-
tine operators, and particularly to our
legislative committee, that instead of being
compelled by legislation to market pure
products, they took the initiative, drafted
adequate laws and put the world on notice
that spirits purchased from our stills is
pure spirits and that we propose to keep
this high standard.
Next a word of warning-conservative
estimates show that each year no less than
one million acres of round timber are
brought into active operation in the State
of Florida alone. When we add to this
the acreage of other States, and to this
the further fact that many sawmills in
the western territory are cutting only
round timber, it will readily be seen how
rapidly our reserves for turpentine pro-
dluction are being depleted.
"I wish this fact were known wherever
spirits of turpentine and rosin are used.
The consumer would then understand that
this association is not at war with his
interests, but that the success of its efforts
in restricting output to reasonable bounds
means a prolongation of the supply of
pure spirits to the world.
"What this association asks of its mem-
bers is that operations should be confined
to limits which are certain of being thor-
oughly worked, and that timber should not
be wasted in reckless extension of opera-
tions. Let us guard jealously our present
timber holdings and concentrate our efforts
on how to work our places to the highest
efficiency. In this connection it is grati-
fying to know that the United States for-
est service is conducting careful experi-
ments at Walkill, Fla.. looking toward the
increased eciency of our operations.
"But the most pressing and most com-
plicated question which confronts you to-
day is the labor question. And to this
I urge you to give your most serious and
"We are in a condition which I venture
to say has never before had its parallel in
the history of the world. We have passed
through several prosperous years and as a
result the demand for labor is enormous.
Similar conditions exist in other industries.
"Such demand has led to the offering
of higher wages to laborers. In other in-
dustries this has brought blessings to the
laborer and increased efficiency to the
manufacturer, but with us the result has
been just the opposite. Those who did
not know the turpentine negro well, and
some who should have known better offer-
ed higher wages. This forced the. other
operators also to advance at least to
some extent the customary wage. What
is the result? Thoroughly demoralized la-
bor and less work done.
"The turpentine negro is not thrifty.
tie does not care to save Just as soon as
he has earned a certain amount he quits
work and loafs the rest of tie week. High-
er wages to him has simply meant more
time to loaf, and while he loafed your ex-
pected profits were disappearing.
"Another phase of this demoralization is
the pernicious habit of renting boxes.
Hoping to get more work from the negro,
foolish prices are offered him for gum.
Knowing how easily he can make the
amount he wants, the negro neglects his
rented boxes and so again valuable timber
is wasted and expected profits disappear.
"But the demoralization extends fur-
ther. Money is recklessly advanced and
old debts assumed in order to secure la-
bor, seemily a without regard to the relia-
bIlity of the laborer. Then when the negro
leaves with his debts unpaid what redress
have you? None. The turpentine negro
has no property, and you therefore cannot
recover through the civil courts.
"On the other hand, if the slightest in-
timidation be used,.the peonage law stares
you in the face. Gentlemen, I do not wish
to hold up any Iogey before you, but that
peonage law stands as the law of the land,
and if you insist on advancing money,
make up your minds that that money is
gone when your chipper or your dipper
leaves you. The logic of the situation is
simple-don't let your hands get in debt
to you, and put your prices for labor at
"I wish to urge upon the committee in
charge of this matter that they discuss
it thoroughly and bring before the conven-
tion a resolution which will lead the way
to definite and united action on our part,
action which will put our demoralized labor
conditions again into a normal and healthy
Following the address of President Cov-
ington. a general discussion upon it was
called for, though 'Mr. J .G. Boyd, of Bar-
tow, was the only one who sloke at length
thereon. Mr. Boyd emphasized the serious-
ness of the labor problem and commended
the suggestion of the president that the
operators solve it without delay. Con-
cisely stated, he said, tle problem was
how to handle the negro, and the operator
inust answer it and answer it wisely or
great loss would ensue.

The Factors and Producers Discussed by
W. C. Powell
At Wednesday's session of the T. 0. A.
convention Mr. W. C. Powell of Jackson-
ville discussed the question "The Factor
anu the Producer" in an able manner, giv-
ing to the convention many excellent sug-
Mr. Powell pointed out that the two
were indissolubly linked together, that the
old distinction had been wiped out, and
that upon the success of the operator
depended the success of the factor.
Then, taking up the questions of the
day, Mr. Powell stated that all were over-
borrowing, over-trading, "The spirit of
speculation is rife throughout the entire
Southland," he said, "and that portends
trouble. Already the rumblings have been
heard in the distance, and when you re-
member that pay day is coming some time,
you will see what it all means. Unless
you can make out of your land and timber
weuat you pay for it, the price you paid
for it is not a true value. Build your
house upon a rock and then, when the
storms come, it will stand."
In touching on the labor problem he
said: "'Go home and tell your negroes
that they owe you nothing. Wipe out all
tlher accounts and then tell them that
you will no longer sell on credit, that you
will no longer make advances. Tell him
that you will give him what he has earned
u hen he has earned it, and that alone.
Then you will have gone far toward solv-
ing the labor problem."
The address made a strong impression
ant was heartily applauded.
When Mr. Powell had concluded, Secre-
tary Hollomon read a letter from Mr. G.
A. Petaway suggesting a plan of solving
the labor problem similar to that sug-
gested by Mr. O'Hara on Tuesday, only
making the forfeit $2,000 instead of $1,000.
O'Hara Was a Leader in the Plan for Labor
Tuesday afternoon when President Cov-
ington introduced to the convention Mr.
F. J. O'Hara, of Buffalo Bluff, as the
speaker on the subject "The Labor Ques-
tion," every member of the association
prepared to give himt the closest attention.
It was realized that the problem had been
called up, that it was now to be met, and
each operator prepared to do his share.
Mr. O'Hara, who spoke extemporane-
ously, but with the greatest earnestness,
showed his through knowledge of condi-
tions and his study for a remedy. His
address was. in liart. as follows:
"Owing to a certain unavoidable pub-
licity which has been given, through the
press, to myself and my relation to my la-
borers, it is with considerable hesitation
that I address you today on this subject,
which is of so much importance to each
and every one of us here.
"And at the very outset permit me to
say that I have been in business in Flor-
ida for sixteen years During all that
time I have been hiring and controlling
labor, and I have watched, carefully and
studiously, the changes that have come.
And these changes have been many, and
have not, I say it without hesitation, been
for the best as far as the labor problem is
"'When I first began employing labor,
yes, when I was a laborer myself, it was
selldni that a laborer asked for an ad-
vaice on his wages. And even when he
did it was for but a small amount and
ien'er. unless he was particularly 'broke,'
.. d it amount to more than fifty cents.
"Hlow changed the conditions now!
lihat is the limit today? There is no
limil. I have often been asked by my
lionkkeeper to send a cheek for $150 to
advance money to some laborer, but I
have always refused. There are turpen-
tine hands at work now for whom I would
not give that amount if the old customs
sts.i prevailed and I could for that Ru
purchase their services for life.
'"I have studied this question carefully.
I have consulted the books at the ive
places of which I am manager sad at
my own turpentine farms, and I have
made careful inquiries from other opera-
tors. I am convinced that the yearly oss

Florida, through this system of advances,
amounts to hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars, perhaps fully a million dollars.

be forfeited in ease of his failure to keep
to the terms of the agreement.

rate the negro would make his $2 or $.560

"And, that we may be kept closer to-
gether and thereby better able to unite
to solve our problems suggest that this
association meet every three months, in-
stead of only yearly. I thank you for
your kind attention."
SThe first speaker, when the sunggestions
of Mr. O'Hara were opened for general
discussion, was CoL W. M. Toomer, who
said, among other things:
"There is one thing to which I wish to
call attention. It is generally known that
the convicts are leased largely to the tur-
pentine men. Once in a while you me

takes it up and ofttimes exaggerates the
conditions. Too much seal on the part of
public officials and too much attention
paid to it by the press seems to have hurt
us very greatly."
Col. Toomer then discussed the efforts
of certain parties to depress the prim
of turpentine and rosin and called atten-
tion to the desirability of making a fight
in the right way for the German market
outlining to the convention the way in
which he believed such a fight coud be

next speaker, saying in part:

PROPOSED SOLUTION OF LABOR
Sawmill men and employers of labor
throughout the State are having great
trouble in securing reliable labor and they
are urging everywhere the enforcement of
th vagrancy laws.
The law is being enforced in Savannah,
and as a result, the employers of labor in
that city are having no trouble in secur-
ing an abundance of labor.
In Jacksonville, once in a while their is
an attempt to enforce the vagrancy laws.
The police say that they do not try to
make more arrests because whenever they
do arrest vagrants the courts give them
only a short sentence, and this has no
Good Effect of Long Sentences.
It is generally believed that if the va-
grants are given to understand that they
will be given a good, long sentence in the
State prison camps, or even the county
camps, that there will be a noticeable de-
crease in the number of vagrants seen
loafing around the streets.
During the session of the criminal court
which has just concluded, the trial of a
large number of cases, there were seven
convictions on charges of vagrancy. These
vagrants have not yet been sentenced.
The question of the scarcity of labor and
the large number of able-bodied men wbho
are seen constantly loafing around the
cities and towns of Florida is one that the
Georgia and Florida Sawmill Association
has taken up.
In its report of the proceedings of the
last meeting'bf the association, the South-
ern Lumber Journal of Savannah con-
taind the following on this subject:

in the hands of the various municipalities
throughout the country. Let the mayors
in all the cities, towns and villages in the
states of Virginia, North and South Caro-
lina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Miss-
issippi meet at some central point and
after discussing the best means and meth-
ods for the present difficulties, then and
there among themselves agree upon a cam-
paign for the most rigid enforcement of
the vagrancy laws, such as are to be
found in the statute books in the various
states at this time. Then let Louisiana,
Texas ,Missouri, Kansas, Kentucky and
Tennessee adopt a similar policy, other
parts of the country doing the same thing,
until the whole country has been organ-
ized. This would enable the mayor of one
locality to act in conjunction with his
next door neighbor, so to speak, and in
this way there would be concerted action
and no conflict of opinion between the va-
rious heads of the different municipalities.
This plan would furnish no hiding place
for idle loafers, white or black, who would
thereby be given to understand that they
must work or move on.
Enough for Al Needs.
This plan would have the effect of dis-
solving and scattering the numerous bands
of loafers, who are barely eking out an
existence in different cities, towns and vil-
lages on five and ten cent jobs, and in
this way furnish an immense number of
hands for the mills, woods and elds. We
honestly believe that we have enough help
here in the South if the vagrant laws were
rigidly enforced to fill every need, and
what is more ,the average negro help in
this country is far superior to that of the
average foreigner, such as we have been
able thus far to induce to come down

The Immigration Problem as Presented
by Edwin Brobston.
Mr. President, and Gentlemen of the Tur-
pentine Operators' Association:
From the editorial page of the Times-
Union, of September 7th, I clip the fol-
"The New York correspondent of the
London Times, writing of the allega-
tions of the ill-treatment of European
laborers in Florida turpentine camps,
seems to proceed on the theory that
the charges are true or they wouldn't
be made. The editor of the Dresden
Daily, a paper published in English
at the German resort, pomts to the
fact of the arrest of the accused par-
ties as an indication that they are
true! As though every court were
not bound to proceed on sworn infor-
mation. This, too, in answer to an
American subscriber, presumably a
Floridian, who wrote to the Daily a
communication in the course of which
she said: "The nature of Florida men
is pacific and if any brutality in the
Southern States is brought to public
notice (even to negroes) it is severely
punished. May we not ask you to
withhold such brutal scandal? When
investigation proves the truth of such
statements, then we can accept the
facts with deep regret." Could any-
thing be fairer than such a request?
But the editor of the Dresden Daily
does not seem disposed to grant it.
The cable dispatch referred to as
sent by the New York correspondent
to the London Times begins: "Stories
by men who have escaped from Flor-
ida show that immigrants from Eu-
rope, after arriving in this city, have
been persuaded to go there on prom-
ises of good pay and are now living
there in a condition of absolute slav-
ery." Then he goes on assuming that
the charges are true, that they are
proved by the allegations of men who
are so irresponsible that the United
States court authorities are compelled
to keep them in custody to insure that
they will be on hand when the day of
If compelled to name in their dis-
patches some individual or firm or cor-
poration who could make trouble by
suits for damages, this correspondent
and others of the same ilk would be
guarded in assuming guilt, but so long
as they can attack the honor of a
State, they are sweeping in their alle-
gations. It is a safe thing to do. Any
coward can do it with impunity. By
the time the charges are disproved in
a court of law the public must be
relied upon to have lost interest in
the ease. But the injury still remains."
In reference to this matter, let me say
that some weeks ago I introduced the fol-
lowing resolution, which was unanimously
passed by our Board of Trade:
"Whereas, sensational reports have gone
broadcast throughout the United States
with reference to peonage charges as made
by some of the foreigners who have re-
"ently been employed in mills and turpen-
ine camps, and
"Whereas, such charges, upon investiga-
tion, appear to have been gross misrepre-
-entations of the facts, and
"Whereas, these sensational reports are
calculated to do a great deal of damage to
the South and tend to keep worthy and
honest laborers from coming into our ter
"Whereas, such foreign labor as the
South has been getting appears to be of
the most undesirable class of shiftless
people that are never likely to become
good citizens, and
"Whereas, the South in general, and
Florida in particular, is in need of more
people to work the resources of our for-
ests, our fields, our mines and our manu-
"Therefore, Be it Resolved, that we pe-
tition our State authorities and memorial-
ize our legislature to co-operate in the
establishment of an immigration bureau
for the purpose of diffusing reliable infor-
mation to those who would like to come
among us, and to prevent their being im-
posed upon, and in like manner to protect
the employers of labor and save.them from
being imposed upon by a worthless and
shiftless class, such as have been imposed
upon our people by so-called labor bu-
reaus in the North and East.
"Resolved further, that we communicate
with the various Boards of Trade and
commercial organizations throughout the
South asking their co-operation in urging
the various States to take up the immi-
gration question with a view of establish-
ing a central bureau in New York City to
maintain agencies in European countries
in order that a better lass of immigrants
may be attracted to the South."
Mr. President, this convention has but
emphasized the need for some movement,
not only to relieve the stigma which has
been placed on the South i general, but
Florida in particular. There is need for
some movement that will give relief to a
situation which is becoming oppressive to
every business interest.
The establishment of the right kind of
an Immigration Bureau will be a long step
in the direction of a solution of the labor
problem; it will be a long step in the di-
rection of putting the South where she
must ultimately be n spite of calumny
and in spite of her tradueers.
Let me say in passing, that while envy
and jealousy may contribute to the spread
of exaggerated reports, and the eager en-
thusiasm of our young newspaper men in
quest of an item may be larly responsi-
ble for these reports, it is a fact that we
should be extremely careful to observe the
laws of our land so that we my stand
with clean hands before the bar of public
Unfortunately the law bears hard upon
the employers of labor. They dare not ask
a negro to work out his account, lest they
be arrested for peonage. We are forced
to deal with a worthless, shiftless ele-
ment; the more they are paid the les dis-
posed they are to work.
We have only been able to secure the
scum of great cities whenever we have
reached out in an effort to get something
to compete with the negroes. We advance
car fare and wages, then when they arrive
we have only to insist upon their perform-
ing their contract in order to put upon
ourselves and our children the stigma of
being arrested like common criminal. If
this is not a serious proposition I would
like to know what you would call it. You,
as individuals, are prohibited from going
to Europe to secure reabe, able-bodied
men for your work as they would come un-
der the head of contract labor, which the
law forbids. Therefore, the State must go
into the business for the State can and
will protect both parties. The unscrupu-
lous labor employer will be held down by
a heavy hand, while those in quest of
work will be accorded fair treatment; each
side will have a redress for wrongs in-
It is to secure legislation along these
lines and to secure the necessary appro-
priations to back it up, that caused me
to introduce the resolution. Now, Mr.
President, if this convention shall become
thoroughly imbued with the idea of the
importance of that resolution there is no
question but it could bring to bear suffici-
ent pressure on legislative action, as will
secure to the State of Florida, such an im-
migration bureau as will accomplish great

What is most needed is a bureau eqiup-
ped to push forward a strong campaign
of advertising. For we not only need to
acquaint the world with our wonderful
resources but must pull down a wall of
prejudice which has surrounded us for
more than half a century. This wall was
constructed partially by our hands and
partially by our enemies.
Perhaps one of the hardest things to
make the Northern man believe is, that
notwithstanding the length of our sum-
mers, the heat is not oppressive, that work
can be carried on every month of the
year, and while heat prostrates and kills
by the thousands up there, it only makes
us perspire and feel good down here. That
while blizzards blow LaGrippe in winter,
we are basking in sunshine, they have
begun to appreciate; but of the delights
of our summers they are in utter igno-
rance. There is, perhaps, more dense ig-
norance concerning health statistics, than
most any other one thing, though we have
the government reports and have a weather
bureau, we need to have these emphasized
until the world will come to realize the fa-
vored conditions as they really do exist.
The ignorance and prejudice of our own
people, their lack of respect for law and
order, has been held up constantly in its
darkest colors until the rising generation
has not yet quite eradicated the venomous
poison of a civil war. The idea has been
kept prominent and there are ever eager
hands to flourish the brand which stains
the South as a land of slavery before the
civil war, and the land of peonage ever
since the war.

South, it is useless to tell them of our

The wonderful story of our prosperity
will not induce good people to come among
us, unless we can establish our claims to
health conditions and prove ourselves as a
law-abiding, peace-loving people.
The maintainance of good schools, the
building of good roads, and the enforce-
ment of good laws, is the basis on which
to build good citizenship at home, or to
induce good citizenship from abroad. Cer-
tainly there are within the United States
already enough good people who properly
approached, could be induced to move to
Florida, and make one of the most popu-
lous as well as prosperous States of the
Union. Certainly there is no State where-
in the small land owner can secure such
abundant returns from his labor, in the
soil, as in Florida. When these small land
holders have come insufficient numbers
they will constitute a source of labor sup-
ply from which the factories and other in-
stitutions can draw with the same steadi-
ness as the factories of populous New
When all the timber has been cut from
c.ur forests you will see other factories
springing up. Each sawmill is but the in-
cipient plant from which the great indus-
tries of the future will spring. Look at
the Carolnas of today, almost ready to
rival New England as a manufacturing
section. Less than a generation ago the
Carolinas were dependent on "pitch, tar
and turpentine." And in less than a gene-
ration these turpentine and sawmill opera-
tors in Florida will be largely engaged in
converting the raw material into finished
products, sending forth our phosphate and
kaolin, and other minerals together with
our tobacco and lumber and cotton all
added by the value of brain and brawn
from our own work shops.
There is a time coining when the 1,400,-
000,000 people outside of the United States
will get most of their cotton goods from
the South, rather than getting our raw
cotton. Then, instead of paying us $400,-
000,000 for our cotton they will pay $1,-
200,000.000. But before this comes about,
we must do a great work of education,
both at home and abroad.
With our -millions of untouched acres,
the great tide of immigrants sweeping into
this country now, could soon create a
wealth of untold value, almost beyond
computing, yet for a hundred years we
would still have cheap lands so extensive
is our untilled territory.
The South has already developed here
many resources up to a point where it is
a question of labor supply. Where we
needs must pause before taking another
step. Her expansion of trade and wealth
henceforth must be measured by her ability
to supply labor. We could not produce
more cotton if cotton was fifty cents a
pound, nor more turpentine if it were one
dollar per gallon. We could not produce
more lumber if it was bringing forty
dollars per thousand at the mills; nor
mine more phosphate if it brought twenty
dollars per ton at the mines; we could
not produce more tobacco if it were five
dollars per pound-unless from source we
can increase the production of manual
labor to handle all these things. If any-
thing has developed more than another in
this convention it is the fact of a labor
shortage in every branch of Southern in-
There may be those who would argue
that we let well enough alone, there may
be some who are content to let natural
increase supply our needs. These will
certainly have their way unless we in-
augurate some comprehensive plan of im-
migration. The only way to control the
blacks is to snow them under with white
people, the only way to get the white
people is to assure them against the
blacks; and this we c(an do by settling
small communities of whites where, besides
good lands, we can offer good schools and
good roads. We must depend largely upon
the people of our own country. The Chi-
nese are a failure so far as they have
been tried, the Italians appear to be un-
satisfactory. We know the Germans, the
Swedes, and Hungarians would assimilate
as they have done in the West, but they
have been taught, to shun the South. In
order to reach these we must begin across
the waters; we must educate them, and
must establish steamship lines to bring
them direct to Southern ports or we will
never turn that tide for which we have
waited so long-that tide which has made
cities over night that were almost as big
ais Jacksonville. These people will not
come South to be treated as we treat the
negro, they will not come South at all
unless we put forth the exertion that will
he required to get them.
To undertake this great work success-
fully will require the united work of all the
Southern States. working in harmony with
the railroads and steamship lines. At pres-
ent Florida has a magnificent field to draw
from in our own country where there are
people of our own tongue; let us direct
our energies to secure these, people who
can come here to worship the same God
that we worship, whose children can sing
from the same song books that our child-
ren s'ng from, and whose country is our
country. There are plenty of such to come
who will be anxious enough when made
a(lquain'ed with true conditions. A bureau
such as I have in mind will reach them
and will make the truth known.
CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT,
Seaboard Air Line Railway Will .Make
Great Improvements Here
Formal announcement has been made by
the Seaboarh Air Line Railway Company
of the intention of that company to con-
struct additional terminals, depots, depot
grounds, warehouses, wharves, piers and
terminal facilities, on the property pur-
chased by the company more than a year
ago, known as the old Eppinger & Russell
This property lies along the river front,
east of Hogans creek and is considered a
most excellent location for railroad termi-
nals and especially for the location of
wharves and piers for loading vessels with
While it has been reported for more
than a year that the Seaboard bought the
old Eppinger & Russell mill site, the for-
mal announcement has never before been
made. It was also stated by the Seaboard
officials that the property had been bought
by a Portsmouth, Va., gentleman, and
such was a fact, but at the meeting of
the board of public works yesterday after-
noon an official communication from Supt.
Hicks of the Seaboard, announced the
ownership of the railroad company.
At the meeting of the board Chief Engi-
neer Selden and Capt. D. E. Maxwell, gen-
eral agent of the road, appeared and pre-
sented the communication, which was in
tue form of a petition. It set forth the
fact that the commerce and business of
the city of Jacksonville has so greatly in-
creased, that in order to properly tran-
sact its business, it is necessary for the
Seaboard Air Line to increase its tracks
in the city and its yards, depots, grounds,
warehouses and terminal facilities along
the St. Johns river.
It is stated that th e petitioner, the
Seaboard Air Line Railway Company, has
purchased the i.ppinger & Russell mill site
.property, on the river front, and east of
the branch or division of the road, known
as the Fernandina and Jacksonville rail-
It is then stated that it is necessary to
build a branch line from a point on its
present line of railroad in a southeasterly
and easterly direction to the old mill site
property and thence easterly through the
property adjacent. It is stated that the
company desires "to build and construct
additional terminals, depots, depot grounds,
warehouses, wharves, piers and terminal
facilities on the Eppinger & Russell prop-
erty and other property lying east thereof
and adjacent to the St. Johns river."
The proposed line of road, which is re-
ferred to as a branch line, is to cross a
portion of Adams street; Forsyth street
if extended, and also will cross Bay street.
The petitioners ask authority of the Board
of Public Works and other city authorities
to cross said streets, and any other inter-
vening streets or avenues, and to lay,
construct and maintain two tracks as a
part of the road across these streets.
Capt. Maxwell and Chief Engineer Sel-
den submitted maps showing the location
of the proposed line across the streets
named, and after some discussion, the
board of public works adopted a resolu-
tion recommending that the city council
pass the necessary ordinance granting the
petitioners the desired authority to cross
the streets at the points designated.
The Seaboard Air Line now has a suft
pending in the circuit court, before Judge
Call, wherein it has brought proceedings
to condemn a right of way for its line
across the property purchased last year
by Decatur H. Miller and the Merchants'
and Miners' Transportation Company.
This property extends from Adams street
to the St. Johns river, along the eastern
line of the right of way of the old Fer-
nandina and Jacksonville railroad (now
the Seaboard), and from this right of way
eastward to the bank of Hogans creek.
The property was formerly known as the
Clark mill property. It contains eighteen
acres and was purchased for $(l9,000.

The following resolutions were reported
to the T. O. A. Convention by the commit-

Whereas, this Association is con-
vinced that certain exporters and dis-
tributors of turpentine at Hamburg
and Antwerp, for sale in Germany, are

Therefore, be it resolved, That our
Senators and Representatives in Con-
gress be requested, through the Sec-

to direct the attention of the German
authorities to this matter, and to re-
quest that an investigation be made
as to the quality and purity of spirits
of turpentine being sold and distrib-
uted in Germany.

oughly worked, and this to the end
that the timber shall not be wasted in
reckless extension of operations.
Against Seeking Credit.
Resolved, That we, as an Associa-
tion deplore the practice occasionally
prevalent among operators of seeking
a line of credit with one factorage
company during the fall, having this
account carried during the unprofitable
winter season, and in the beginning
of the producing season transferring
the account to another factorage com-
The Jacksaville Open Market.
Resolved, That we congratulate the
Board of Trade of Jacksonville and the
factorage companies and others co-
ope-ating with'that Board in the es-
tablishment and maintenance of an
open market for the sale of naval
stores at Jacksonville.
This movement, in our opinion, has
a tendency to advance and steady the
price and tone of naval stores and to
discourage the manipulations which in
previous years have discredited the Sa-
Fal Sterie in New York Papers.
Whereas, certain newspapers in New
York have recently published 'sensa-
tional statements as to the inhumani-
ty practiced on labor in certain tur-
pentine camps in Florida;
And whereas, the parties alleged to
have been mistreated and who were
quoted in this publication as having
been whipped and otherwise punished,
did not furnish and willfully sup-
pressed the ci-cumstances connee'ed
with their confinement and punish-
And whereas, we are advised that
these parties were not freemen, but
convicts who were arrested, legally
'owreted and properly punished for
The-efore be it resolved, That this
Association protest against the injus-
tice to and misrepresentation of Flor-
ida and her turpentine camps, and re-
ouests that through 1he Associated
Press these resolutions be communi-
eated to the papers containing the ob-
By Edwin Brobston.
Whereas, sensational reports have
gone broadcast throughout the United
SStates with reference to peonage
charges as made by some of the for-
eigners who have recently been em-
ployed in mills and turpentine camps,
Whereas, such charges, upon inves-
tigation ,appear to have been gross
misrepresentations of the facts, and
Whereas, these sensational reports
are calculated to do a great deal of
damage to the South and tend to keep
worthy and honest laborers from com-
ing into our territory, and
Whereas, such foreign labor as the
South has been getting appears to be
Sof the most undesirable class of shift-
less people that are never likely to be-
come good citizens, and
Whereas, the South in general, and
Florida in particular, is in need of
more people to work the resources of
our forest, our fields ,our mines and
Therefore, be it resolved, That we
petition our State authorities and me-
morialize our legislature to co-operate
in the establishment of an immigra-
tion bureau for the purpose of diffus-
ing reliable information to those who
would like to come among us, and in
like manner to protect the employers
of labor and save them from being
imposed upon by a worthless and shift-
less class, such as have been imposed
upon our people by so-called labor
bureaus in the North and East.

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 17
Timely Thoughts Expressed in Welcome
Melsby Machinery Company
,L -0 of Jacksonville. Fla.
The first response to the address of wel-
come was made by Col. W. M. Toomer, of
Jacksonville, whose address, earnest as it
was and abounding in polished figures of
speech and forceful presentation of facts
and argument, was easily one of the fea-
tures of the morning session. Tmong other
things, Col. Toomer said in part:
"We. have been shown the interest that
the city of Jacksonville takes in the Tur-
pentine Operators' Association, and the
best evidence that we have that the ope-
rators take an interest in Jacksonville is
the fact that they rebuilt the city. Florida
is essentially a State of one city, and that
one city of the entire State is Jackson-
ville, the great commercial city, the busi-
Three Great Divisione.
The speaker then pointed out that the
turpentine, or naval stores business, is di-
vided into three great divisions, the operat-
ing or producing department, the factor-
age interests, and the export feature. Con-
tinuing his remarks, he said, in part:
"The operating end of the business is, I
believe, in very good shape. The labor
problem is, it is true, a complex and un-
satisfactory one. But it is going to be
solved. The members of this association
must understand and fully recognize that
the turpentine of this State and country
is going to be produced by the darkey
laborer. And as for me, I'd rather have
a negro woman as a worker than a China-
"It is all well enough to speak of the in-
creased prosperity of the laborer and that
the higher his wages the better his work
uill be. But we must remember that the
rules that apply to the white man must
be reversed when applied to the negro.
When you increase his wages you injure
him. Raise his pay and his labor depre-
ciates. This has been amply proven, not
only on the turpentine farms, but by the
Clyde steamship line." (Here Col. Toomer
was interrupted by a burst of spontaneous
applause and cheers.)
Matters for Thought.
Col. Toomer then pointed out what he
considered some of the matters which the
operators should begin thinking about, in
order to be fully ready to act upon when
the time comes for action.
He called attention to the fact that the
factors had at present no power to buy
rosin and turpentine, and suggested that
the power be given them to become pur-
chasing agencies, with the view to retiring
from the market 50.000 to 100,000 barrels
of naval stores. In speaking of this fea-
ture, Col. Toomer said:
"I tell you that nothing saved you from
ruin but Almighty God and Standard Oil
Company. If the Standard Oil Company
had not covered the market at 57 cents,
you would have sold the bulk of your crop
for less than 50 cents."
The speaker also called attention to the
need of better warehousing a nd suggested
the conversion of the factorage companies
into export companies. He also dwelt on
the fact that Jacksonville had become an
onen market calling attention to the bene-
fits that had been derived therefrom and
to the fact that even hostile interests
were now buying here.
Major HaiF Responae.
Major T. C. Hall, of Ceala, responded
next to the addresses of welcome.
Major Hall's address was a little gem.
Concise, directly to the point, and rich
in figures and ornamentation, he returned
the heartfelt thanks of the convention to
all the cordial welcomes that had been ex-
NWhen he closed his address ,the conven-
tion applauded him loudly.
Ho. T. A. Jeamings.
The last response to the addresses of
welcome was delivered by the Hon. T. A.
Jennings, of Pensacola, who spoke as fol-
Mr. President: On behalf of the naval
stores producers of the State of Florida,
of which I am one, one behalf of the Tur-
pentine Operators' Association, which has
a membership representing more than 700
stills, scattered throughout the Southern
States, wherever the pine trees grow, I
thank you, Governor Broward, and you,
Judge Gibbons, representing the mayor and
the city council of Jacksonville, and you,
Mr. Carter, representing the board of
trade and the Jacksonville newspapers, for
your hospitable greetings, and the cordial
words you have spoken, welcoming us in-
dividually and as members of this asso-
ciation to the metropolis of this State.
"It is most pleasant, we assure you, for
us to come to these annual sessions and
meet with such exhibitions of boundless
and limitless feelings of cordiality for
which Jacksonville people are noted, for
everybody knows that Jacksonville always
does her part. Our highest state official,
the officers of the city council and of the
board of trade of Jacksonville, while honor-
ing us with their presence and their
speeches of welcome, have only emphasized
the true Jacksonville spirit, and which is
going a long way toward making Jackson-
ville one of the most prosperous and most
popular cities in the country.
"And just a few words to you, fellow-
operators. The Turpentine Operators' As-
sociation has passed its experimental stage,
and should certainly become a fixed in-
stitution. Founded upon the broad prin-
ciples of 'equal rights to all,' you have
asked no 'special privileges,' and it has,
during the six years of its existence done
great good by bringing the operators to-
gether and creating a feeling of friend-
ship and brotherhood between them. It
has done good by putting the world on
notice that while it is not in any sense
of the word a trust, we will not sell our
products at prices below the profit line,
and for less than their actual worth. It
has done good by encouraging and assist-
ing live, healthy and strong competition
in opposition to a genuine trust, which
seeks to control not only the market, but
every other branch of the industry. It
has done good, and is continuing to do
good, in other ways unneceary to men-
tion at this time, but which are well
known to the turpentine operators, to the
trade generally and to the public at large.
A Great Work Done.
"The turpentine people have done much
toward the development and upbuilding of
Florida. Go where you may. from one end
of the State to the other, you will find
them engaged also in other lines along
with the leading business men of the
State and among the livest and most pro-
"They are everywhere extending their
operations, as they prosper, and are be-
coming bankers, merchants, planters and
developers generally. By their broad and
liberal ways of doing business they have
been of aid directly or indirectly to nearly
every new commercial enterprise in Flor-
ida. The bankers, the wholesale dealers,
the small merchants, the great railroad
systems, the laborers and the farmers are
all being greatly benefited by the inter-
change of business and trade with those
engaged in the turpentine industry.
"Consult the tax books of the several
counties in the State and you will find
that the turpentine people are not de-
stroyers of wealth and property; that they
are not taking anything away from their
fellow man or the country at large, but
they are producing by development more
wealth all the time and that they are
sharing the same with the people among
whom they live.
"The fact that a competitive company,
organized and backed principally by ope-
rators who were members of this associa-
tion. was short lived should not discourage
us in keeping up this organization, and it
should not discourage us and prevent us
from organizing other companies for the
protection of our great industry whenever
and wherever we need them.
"The closing of the doors of the recent
company so dear to the hearts of all of
us was, indeed, a sad day to me, to you
and to the producers of naval stores at
large. But out of failure there frequently
conies success. We should remain organ-
i7Red. Keep alive this association, gentle-
men. Keep it alive! Give it your heart-
