been at H worst. In that part of Ala-
blma ar li this State just across the
Alabama line, there was some of the very
best naval stores timber and some of the
largest naval stores farms. Some of the
operators lost exceedingly heavy, the re-
port coming that from Pensacola to points
beyond Flomaton the country is strewn
with falling timber and that it will require
some time to clear the tracks of the Louis-
ville & Nashville railroad so as to permit
traffic over that line.

The Savannah Meeting May Take Action on
the Labor Propositon.
Operators who have visited Jacksonville
thi week, state that they have received
a ll to the meeting of turpentine opera-
jt at Savannah oa October 4th.
SThese operators are members of the
Trp-the Operators' Association and
$hey apparently do not understand the
Savannah movement. It is stated that
the operators in the vicinity of Waycross
ad from there to Savannah, have not been
fully advised as to what this movement
a m ms, but it is generally understood here
that it is an efort on the part of the ope-
Cators in a certain section of Georgia- to
smmr relief from the present intolerable
,Yo conditions and to meet and see if
lm p cannot be devised.
It is probable that the same plan to
nmma y the labor situation proposed by
the Turpentine Operators' Convention will
6a proposed to the Savannah convention
ad there may be a decision to adopt this
In this call for the Savannah meeting
lreare not very many operators inter-
4t1il. The Georgia turpentine territory
has been dwindling down and a fair esti-
mate is that there are not one-fourth as
many acres in operation in that State as
in Florida and about one-fourth as many
The factors in Jacksonville do not re-
gard the movement as important, but all
of them state that if the operators in any
one section of the belt can get together on
this labor proposition and other matters,
so much more good has been accomplished
through association and organization.
They are inclined to encourage a coming
together of operators, but of course claim
that the only practical plan to be of value
must be through the general organization,
the Turpentine Operators' Association,
which covers the entire territory and
which has already developed much good
for the operator.
Since the first call was issued through
the columns of the Savannah News for
this meeting there has been nothing said.
The movement may be more definitely ex-
plained in a few days and just before the
meeting is held.
SB. Norman Talks IntLrestingly of Railroads,
It ler and Turpentne
Some of the operators express the fear
that the drop in the lower grades of rosin,
which has been felt during the trading for
the last few days is to continue and that
they are going to drop until they reach a
bottom figure just before the end of the
present scraping season.
This is the season of the year when a
drop in the low grades will more seriously
affect the operators and they are beginning
to feel the slick Italian hand of some of
the manipulators is beginning to play a
part in the industry.
These operators claim that those who
are making an effort to control the rosins
situation at Savannah are beginning to
beat the prices down and that there are
strong evidences against their operations
already shown. They claim that the plan
is to keep the prices down and to continue
to beat them down further till the close
of the season, when the rosin is out
of the hands of the operators and in the
hands of the exporters. Then the prices
are to regain their hold on the market and
are expected to go bounding up, this plan
having been worked against the operator
in the past.
During the past few days there have
been a number of conferences held between
factors and operators in Jacksonville look-
ing into this matter, and while there has
been no plan proposed upon which to pre-
vent a manipulation of rosins, the general
tendency has been to get a better under-
standing and to draw more closely to-
gether to prevent a great reduction in the
posted on this matter of manipulation in
lower grades that we are beginning to hear
something about. Of course we are having
trouble with labor an dthe prices of tim-
ber are away up ,but despite this, I be-
lieve the industry is prospering."
Mr. Norman knew nothing of the move-
ment for a meeting of operators in Sa-

Daily Service Between New York and
The Philadelphia North American, in
speaking of the new daily service inaugu-
rated by the Clyde Steamship Company be-
tween New York and Philadelphia, refers
in the following complimentary manner to
what the Clyde Line has done for Jackson-
"As testimony upon what good water
transportation will do for a city, it is
worth while to cite the advancement of
Jacksonville, Fla. This is particularly
relevant, because the Clyde Steamship
Company was the agency, and Mr. Eger
the man who did the work.
"In 1888, when the company started in
there, there was virtually no business by
water, and only ten feet depth to the
harbor. Today the Clydes run nine steam-
ships out of Jacksonville, six to New York
and three to Boston In the eighteen years
the tonnage has multiplied five times.
"The company virtually had to make the
business and then carry it. But, as Mr.
Eger says, the people of the city recog-
nized that a steamship line was a boon,
and supported it loyally. One of the ob-
stacles lay in the wretched sand roads of
the peninsula, along which freight had
to be slowly and laboriously hauled by
mules. Mr. Eger and the Jacksonville mer-
chants got together in a 'good roads' move-
ment, and mile upon miles of fine roadway
"Even the automobile was seized upon
while most persons still considered it a
sort of toy, and autoloads of freight went
humming along the new roads, to be
stowed in the holds of the steamships and
carried away northward. Jacksonville is
an example which even big Philadelphia

BOARD OF TRADE COMMITTEE TAKES
ACTION REGARDING TERMINALS.
After again carefully considering the
question of the wharfage charges on lum-
ber an dall matters relative thereto, the
special committee of the board of trade
went on record Wednesday as favoring the
issuing of a rule by the railroad commis-
sion of Florida against the railroad com-
panies .compelling the latter to show cause
why adequate docks and terminal facili-
ties should not be furnished.
In addition it was decided to bring this
matter to the attention of the lumbermen
and they are urged to present to the com-
mission on Tuesday next facts and statis-
ties regarding the present terminal facili-
ties and what is yet needed.
This was the most important action
taken yesterday, though the lumbermen
were urged to be present before the rail-
road commission Tuesday in order to pre-
sent any necessary facts and figures re-
garding the proposed wharfage charges.
It was apparently the understanding of
the committee that the railroads, answer-
ing the rule of the railroad commission,
will obpect to the proposed rate, as set
forth in full in the Record last week.
It was the sense of the committee that
the lumbermen, who would be fully satis-
fied with these rates if the necessary facili-
ties were furnished them and who, even
under present conditions, believe them
much better than the increased charges
proposed by the railroads themselves,
should go to Tallahassee Tuesday and ap-
pear before the commission and go pre-
pared to maintain with facts and statistics
the position they have taken in this mat-
Announcement was then made that an
informal meeting of the lumbermen had
been called for Friday afternoon at 3
o'clock and that at this meeting all nec-
essary data would be compiled. In addi-
tion it was stated that among those who
would be present before the railroad coin
mission on Tuesday were the following:
President Stillwell of the Georgia and
Florida Interstate Sawmill Associatio
City Attorney J. MI. Barrs, Dexter Hunter,
W. Frazier Jones .W. E. Guillette, and
others. The lumbermen will leave for Tal-
lahassee Monday afternoon.
In addition to the members of the com-
mittee, Mr. Joseph H. Burroughs, presi-
dent of the Southern Warehouse Company,
was present at the meeting and took part
in the discussion of some of the points
raised by different members of the com-
In discussing the present terminal facili-
ties, the same ground was gone over as
heretofore, and the lumbermen present
wvre unanimously of the opinion that the
present facilities were greatly inadequate.
Some stated unequivocally that the pro-
posed charges, if adequate facilities were
furnished, would be wholly satisfactory,
but that unless they were given such ade-
quate facilities, even the proposed charges
Then came a general discussion of the
power of the Railroad Commission of
Florida to compel the raiilroads to furnish
the -needed docks, warehouses and termi- time of the severe storm which did so much
nal facilities. Attention was called to the
fact that the railroads denied this power
of the commission and that they would
resist it to the last.
It seemed, however, to be the consensus
of opinion among those present that the
railroad commission did have this power,
and that inasmuch as the commission could
compel the railroads to provide terminals
for trunks and flour, etc., for a reasonable
length of time, the same held with other
freight, and hence with regard to lumber.
Unequivocal declarations were made that
unless reasonable charges were made for
storage, wharfage ,etc., the business would
be diverted from Jacksonville, self-pro-
tection forcing the lumbermen to take this
course. One lumbermen stated that as
soon as he had finished up his present
year's business he was "through forever
with wharfage charges" and would, if nec-
essary, divert his business to another port.
On the matter of the adequate terminals,
the opinion of those present was to the
effect that they were wholly inadequate,
and that the only hope of keeping the
present business of the port was compell-
ing the raiilroads to build larger termi-
tl was also openly charged that the rail-
roads were seeking to avoid building bet-
ter terminals here in order that the lum-
hermen, for self-protection, would be com-
pelled to divert their business to those
ports where the railroads already have
larger terminals which are now lying idle.
CLYDE STEAMER ALGONQUIN PASSED

('apt. D)vercaux was seen aboard his
ve :scl yesterday and reported that on
Monday, about 12 o'clock, forty miles
northeast by east of Frying Pan shoals,
he passed part of the house of a wrecked
vessel, supposed to have been the one that
several sailors were rescued from a few
days ago in a half-starved condition.
He also reports that later, about twenty
miles northeast by east-half-east from the
sanme shoals, that he passed spars, heeled
up. undoubtedly attached to a sunken ves-
sel; that at 5 o'clock .fourteen miles south-
west by south from the same shoals, he
passed a capsized vessel, a dangerous ob-
struction in the course of coastwise steam-
(apt. Devereaux reported that it was
impossible to distinguish the names of
vessels on the wreckage passed. though in
his ol inion the spars sighted by him were
attached to some schooner laden with coal.
This report brings to mind the fact that
the schooner Helen M. Atwood, out from
Newport News since September S. with a
cargo of coal for Mayport, has never been
heard from since her departure from New-
port News, and should have heet in the
neighborhood of the sunken spars at the
damage to shipping off the Carolina coast.
Great fears are entertained here that this
wreck is the schooner Helen M. Atwood.
NEW FLOATING DOCK.

Now that the Merrill-Stevens Company
lha. practically completed the steamers La-

been turned to their own property, and
they are now rushing the work on their
new floating dock, the Roosevelt, which is
moored on the south side of the river.
Fifty men have been placed at work on
this monster dock, and it was stated at
the plant yesterday that work will be
rushed on the dock so that it can be placed
in commission this winter.
The slip in which the dock is to be
placed has been dreged out to sufficient
depth and as soon as the dock is completed
it will be towed to this side of the river,
where she will be placed in commission.

8 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
EX-GOVERNOR JENNINGS ALLEGES
Before Justice I. L. Farris yesterday
morning former Gov. W. S. Jennings filed
a suit for criminal libel against Alfred
St. Clair Abrams of Tavares and A. K.
Taylor of Jacksonville.
The charge of criminal libel is based upon
an article which appeared in the Tavares
Herald Septeiflber 24, together with a car-
toon, which former Gov. Jennings alleges
is false, malicious and scandalous criminal
The cartoon, which covered the upper
half of the front page on the Tavares
Herald, pictures ex-Gov. Jennings in tat-
tered clothing speaking before the legisla-
ture of 1899, with the speaker in his box
saying: "As you are a good old 'straight-
out,' I've worked it to let you off for
The audience is pictured saying: "You
are poor--the poorest specimen of man I
have ever seen."
The cartoon pictures Gov. Jennings with
his face toward the audience, labeled:
"Sherman Jennings," and saying, "Gentle-
men ,I have walked from Brooksville to
exhibit my personal appearance to you,
which speaks pityingly of my poverty. I
am hungry, footsore, shoeless and ragged
and 1 ask relief front defaulting Collins'
bond which 1 am on for $6,000-pity me,
gen:'lemen, 1 am very poor."
Grounds for Suit.
The right hand of the cartoon pictures
(Gov. Jennings sitting in an arm chair la-
beled "ex-(Gov. Sherman Jennings"-with
papers projecting front his coat pocket
labeled, "$15,000 bank stock"-and lhe
reading the following: "$30,000 stock
Consolidated Naval Stores in another
name." A picture labeled "Cousin Bill" is
hanging on the wall, saying, "May be min-
ister to the court of St. James," and ex-
G(ov. Jennings saying: "I may not be able
to fool all the people all the time, but
I've been able to fool a good many of
'em a good many times." The cartoon
pictures Mr. Jennings leaning back in the
chair, resting his feet on a bag labeled
"Conivet lease profits $," and at the bot-
tom of the cartoon are the words, "Before
and after taking."
Although the cartoon bears no name, it
is alleged that Mr. Taylor drew it.
The story upon which the criminal libel
proceedings is based appears in the Ta-
vares Herald on the editorial page and is
headed "A Scandalous Administration."
Article Objected To.
In the affidavit filed and sworn to before
S.lustice Farris ex-Gov. Jennings points out
the following which appeared in the Tav-
"Florida has had good governors, in-
different governors and poor governors,
but until William Sherman Jennings be-
came governor of the State of Florida
there was never a scandal circulated affect-
ing the integrity of any chief magistrate
of this State. We have had governors who
have been criticised, assailed and their ac-
tions denounced, but we cannot recall a
single instance in which any reports were
circulated charging any of them with prof-
iting by his office. It is useless to deny
the character of the reports that have been
and are still incirculation. It would be
useless to suppose that they have not
reached the ears of William Sherman Jen-
"There have been scandalous reports of
money paid monthly on account of the
convict lease, and of money paid to secure
the signing of the famous divorce bill.
With the truth or falsity of these re-
ports the people of Florida are very much
concerned. Mr. Jennings is still taking
active part in the affairs of this State.
lie is believed to be the power behind
(Gov. Broward in the drainage scheme and
to have been the author of the constitu-
tional amendment now sought to be foist-
ed upon the people of this State. He is
the attorney of the Broward board, re-
-eiving. it is said, $5,000 per annum from
thie funds of the State.
"Ei:her this niian has been for years
most outrageously slandered or libeled or
lie is utterly unfit to hol dany position of
trust and confidence in the State of Flor-
ida. lie entered upon his duties as gover-
nor a comparatively poor man; when he
left it, he is credited with being in afflu-
ence. Report gives hlimi the ownership of
$30.000 of stock in the consolidated d Naval
Stores Company, 1f5,000 of stock in the
bank of which lie was one of the vice-
presidents for one year, and with being
possessed of other thousands; all this
within four short years."
The information further alleges that ex-
(ov. Jennings has been accused of tile fol-
"That when he was elected governor he
aus so poor that lie could only pay one-
sixth of what lie owed as security on the
State treasury for the Collins bond and
only paIid one-third of what he owed in
the Brooksville bank trouble, but after
serving as governor for four years at a
salary of $3,5F30, he quits with a hand-
some fortune .variously estimated at from
i50.'X) to $100,00-lHow did you get it,
gove:'nor -where did you get it ?"
(ov. .lennings sets forth that they then
and there, knowing the said scandalous
and malicious libel to be fal.e, Alfred St.
'lair Abrams and A. K. Taylor did unlaw-
fully and maliciously draw, portray, write
and publish and cause to be written, drawn,
portrayed and published of and concerning
W .S. .lennings, a false, scandalous and
malicious criminal libel in the form of a
picture, drawing or cartoon in the Tavares
Alfred St. ('lair Abrams was in the city
yesterday, a guest at the Aragon, and was
arrested by Constable W. H. llerndon. A.
K. Taylor was also arrested later by Con-
stable Herndon. They were both released
without giing bond and will appear before
Justice 1. L. Farris at 10 o'clock this
mvotrning for a preliminary hearing.
The following is the State law under
which the action is brought: "That any
per-on who wilfully states, delivers or
transmits by any means whatever, to the
manager, editor, publisher (;r reporter of
any newspaper, magazine or periodical
within this State for publication therein
any false and libelous statement concern-
ing any person or corporation, and there-
by secures the actual publication of the
same, shall upon conviction thereof, be
punished by fine not exceeding $500 or
imprisonment not exceeding one year, or
by both fine and imprisonment in the dis-
cretion of the court."

Have you notified your negro laborers
that you have done away with the credit
This is the season for plotting and it
begins to look as though there was plot-
ting under way.
Operators are asked to watch the col-
umns of the Industrial Record. There will
be something to give out in a few days.
While you are resting it might be well
to look up the issue of the Industrial Rec-
ord of September 13, and again read the
resolutions adopted by the T. O. A.
There ought to be a line drawn against
the circuit riding negro preacher in the
turpentine camps. There are good negro
preachers, perhaps, but the trouble-makers
are in the majority.
The lawlessness in Atlanta will have
accomplished some good if it sends the
loafers to the chaingangs or to the tur-
pentine camps. Atlanta has too long coun-
tenanced vagrancy within her gates.
MANIPULATION OF ROSINS.
If we are to judge the future by the
past, there is reason for the apprehension
expressed by a number of the naval stores
operators in this city this week. That
there is to be an effort to manipulate the
prices of the lower grades of rosin until
they are in the hands of the exporters is
only natural. It has been done before
and will be done again unless the operator
makes some arrangement to check it.
As yet there has not been any definite
plan proposed to check this effort on the
part of the speculator, but it will come if
the plan to push rosins down is to succeed
to any extent. Already there are con-
ferences being held to the end that when
the time comes to act, that action will be
taken quickly and will be of a character
which will be calculated, at least, to bring
about the desired results.
Operators owe it to their own interests
to be on the alert to see to it that they
are not beat out of their earnings by a
few sharks who have been merciless in the
the past .
In the meantime the Industrial Record
will be on the alert and will be the first
to advise the operator of any movement of
interest to the industry.
MR. STILLWELL ON ACTION OF T. 0. A.
Mr. J. A. Hollomon, Jacksonville, Fla.:
Dear Sir-I am glad indeed to see the
turpentine operators organizing to protect
their interests in the matter of labor and
various other things. The lumbermen
have accomplished a great deal in this di-
rection, and yet there are many lumber
manufacturers who are not members of
the associations who should be and who,
by joining, would not only advance the
general interest, but would be materially
WM. B. STILLWELL.
MOVEMENT STEADILY UICREASING.
Ten Carloads of Oranges Pas Through
Florida oranges are now moving from
the State at a rate of about ten carloads
a day to the eastern and western markets.
and by the middle of October the move-
men will be greatly increased and all rail-
road companies will be kept on the go to
provide cars (or the shipments.
Tuesday, the Atlantic Coast Line rail-
way, alone, handled seven solid carloads
through Jacksonville, which makes a total
of fifty-three carloads already handled
from the State, by that company.
This only gives an idea of the amount of
fruit that is now moving from the State.
In speaking of the orange movement
yesterday a well known railroad man said
that the Florida orange growers were not
rushing their fruit out of the State in an
unripened condition, as has been reported,
on the contrary .they are shipping all good,
juicy Florida fruit, which will compare
favorably with the fruit that will come
along next month.
*"Some scalpers," said the railroad man,
"are shipping bad fruit, some that are
scarred and unripened, but not much of
this fruit is leaving the State.
"The Florida orange growers realize that
if they ship bad fruit early in the season
that it will hurt the prices of later fruit,
and they are shipping only the best. The
shipments promise to be heavy from now
on to the close of the season."
Great Damage and Loss of Life by Storm on
the Gulf Coast,
Pensacola, Fla., Sept. 27.-The worst
storm and hurricane that the gulf coast
has experienced since the village of Pensa-
cola on Santa Rosa island was swept one
hundred and seven years ago, began last
night and is still raging late this after-
noon. It is reported many lives between
the city and navy yard have been lost, but
as many reports of this character have
been current all the day, the report does
not obtain credence.
It is known, however, that many of the
houses in that section are under from
five to ten feet of water, and many women
have been taken from the second story
windows and carried'to safety in boats.
Three Million Dollars Los.
The estimated property damage is $3,-
000,000. Every house in Pensacola has
suffered damage and many roofs are blown
off. Telephone and telegraph and electric
light wires are among the mass. The water
front is strewn with wreckage for miles on
either side of the city, and vessels are
piled on the wharves, or where the wharves
once were, in utter ruin. Big iron steam-
ers and many lighter sailing ships are lying
high and dry up in the city where the tide
has never been known to reach. Every-
where for miles around wharves have been
swept away or damaged beyond repair.
The electric power was shut off at 1 o'clock
this morning. There is no street car traf-
fic and communication with the outside
world is practically cut off. The streets of
Pensacola are strewn with timbers, tin
roofing and broken glass.
This dispatch, with other telegraphic
matter, is being carried to Flomaton, Ala.,
by the Western Union manager, who
makes the trip by train to ascertain the
extent of damage done here and elsewhere.
It is feared havoc and loss of life will be
shown when reports from the entire see-
tion along the coast can be gathered.
Eighty-Eight Miles an Hour.
Washington, Sept. 27.-Belated reports
from Pensacola, Fla., to the weather bu-
reau here show that the gulf storm has
passed inland some distance west of that
station with winds of hurricane strength.
the maximum velocity at that station be-
ing 88 miles an hour. The storm is prob-
ably central tonight in the south central
portion of Mississippi, no reports, however,
having been received from that State, in-
cluding Louisiana and southwestern Ala-
bama. It is believed to be decreasing in
energy, and that it will move slowly north-
ward during gthe next twenty-four hours.
An increase in energy, however, may be
looked for when the disturbance reaches
:he lower lake region. Its probable course
during the next twenty-four hours will be
north through Tennessee and Kentucky
into the Ohio valley.
Rain will continue in the middle Mis-
sissippi valley, the Ohio valley, the south
Atlantic States and will probably spread
into the western portion of the middle At-
lantic States and the lower lake region
by Friday night.
Grain Elevator Destroyed.
Montgomery, Ala., Sept. 27.-Reports to
Superintendent J. McKinney, of the Mobile
and Montgomery division of the Louisville
and Nashville railroad, indicate that the
road has suffered damage of over $1,000,-
000 as a result of the gulf storms. Tracks
between Flomaton, Ala., and Pensacola,
are entirely obstructed and in some places
badly torn up by falling trees, while the
section between Georgiana and Graceville,
Fla., has suffered similarly. At Pensacola
the Louisville & Nashville grain elevator
has been destroyed and the entire trackage
to Escambia Bay is ruined. The railroad
wharf is a total loss and thirty-nine cars
of coal of the company have been washed
into the bay. His reports indicate that
the roadbed between Bay Minette, Ala.,
*d Mobile, a distance of thirty miles, has
been washed away, rendering traffic im-
possible. Five hundred section workmen
are being rushed from Montgomery to
Birmihgham to the scene of the damage.
STEAMSHIP SANTURCE LOADING
The American steamship Santurce, Caut.
Griffiths, arrived in port about 11 o'clock
yesterday morning from Porto Rico and
was moored at the Talleyrand pier, where
she commenced at once to take on a cargo
No sooner had the big ship been moored
at the pier than her loading gear was
rigged up and a large force of men went
to work on her. Four hatches were thrown
open for cargo and the ties were soon pour-
ing into her hold at a rapid rate.
The Santurce has been chartered by Bax-
ter & Company and will load 24,000 cross-
ties for New York. It was stated on the
pier yesterday afternoon that the ship
would be ready for sea by Friday morning.
In fact, at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon
ties had been loaded up to a level of the
second deck and were still going aboard
The Talleyrand pier presents a very busy
scene. The ship, though she sits high out
of the water, could hardly be seen from
the dock on account of the immense quan-
tity of ties and stacks of lumber piled up
ready to be shipped away.
Besides the Santuree, the schooners Maud
B. Crum and the Alice B. Phillips are
moored there loading. Several other
schooners are expected at the pier in a
few days to take on charges.
KILLING IN WEST ALACHUA.
Maie Scofield killed by Thomas, a Tie
Gainesville, Sept. 24.-Maxie Scofield of
Bell was shot and killed today by William
Thomas, a tie contractor. Both men are
It is said that the Scofield and Thomas
factions have been at outs for some time
and that Scofield was instrumental in

a preliminary hearing in justice court
at Bell tomorrow.

LAKE CITY TO HAVE A COTTON FAC-
Lake City, Sept. 28.-The first cotton
manufacturoy in the State is now being
established in this city. This is a dis-
tinction which Lake City now holds over
all other places in the State. For months
past the plan of its location here has been
gradually pushed forward until now it is
an assured fact. Mr. Edgar M. Johnson's
large building, formerly a lumber and
planing mill, has been purchased and the
machinery, which has been stored for some
time, is now being installed. This will
take a short time, after which the mill will
be put into running order. ti will be one
of the biggest enterprises in the State,
and will employ a large number of hands.
aLter, machinery for the manufacture of
paper boxes and bags will be placed and
the mill enlarged with new manufactory
departments. It will be known as the
Lake City Manufacturing Company, and
will make all kinds of knitted goods. The
officers are as follows:
President-J. C. Sheffield.
Vice-President A. R. Wise.
Secretary and Treasurer-F. F. Bardin.
The mill is a removal here of the one
formerly in Tryon, N. C., and Mr. A. D.
Beatson ,who was manager there, will re-
sume the same position here. He returned
to Tryon last week to make all arrange-
ments for moving here soon and his son
will arrive next week.
This is the first of a number of large
enterprises which Lake City expects to
have located here within the near future.
OHIO BAN KFAILS AND MONEY
Pomeroy, O., Sept. 28.-The Middleport
bank, a private institution at Middleport,
0., failed to open its doors today. It is
stated that the greater part of the de-
Iosits, amounting to $115,000, are missing
and great excitement prevails. .Most of
the depositors are poor people and their
deposits represented nearly all their sav-
ings. The president of the bank is E. C.
Fox. He is away, and in his absence no
official condition of the bank has yet been
published. President Fox went away last
Tuesday, leaving Vice-president T. 8. Ar-
mentrout in charge. An examination of
the vaults after Fox had gone revealed

ATTORNEY GENERAL CHAMBERS'
OPINION ON INSPECTION LAW.
Walihington. Sept. 27.-The secretary of
agriculture has just received from the at-
torney general the text of the important
l iui;on rende ed by the latter answering
ill the negative the iquest':n submitted to
hilm. as to whether or in.t the meat inspec-
:ion la'\ passed at theI last session of con-
gress applied to meat Iprsdlucts imported
into tile U'nited States from foreign coun-
tries. The attorney general says that
thle question as to tile application to such
ar.icles was of considerable importance as
inllnllnse quantit es of sausage, gelatine,
ine:It extracts and other limenit footd prod-
ucts a e imported every. year.
Mr. IMoody held that tile provi-ions of
tlhe ime.at inspection amendments has refer-
e:-'e entirely to domestic slanghtrieing and
meat Lpaiking establishnelnts. The matter
of impilarte inmeats and meat products. the
i t 'rmnlle general said. was not referred to
;it all in the Ieati inspiec.ion amendment.
'ut haI liee-i deilt with by congress in
,hle p:ii:e food law. which had been enacted
ait thie Sn e t'in. Thie putre food law, he
Ipinted out. Ipecilically prohibited the in-
production from any foreign country or
the transportation in interstate commerce
of impure, adulterated or misbranded ar-
ticles of food and drink, and provided that
food should be considered adulterated
within the meaning of the act if, among
other things, it consists in whole or in port
of a filthy, decomposed or putrid animal
or vegetable substance, or any portion of
an animal unfit for food, whether manufae-
tured or not, or if it is the product of a
diseased animal or one that has died other-
wise than by slaughter.
This act, he said, plainly contemplated
tile importation and delivery through the
channels of interstate commerce to the
consignees and purchasers of imported
meat food products which were pae,
wholesome and unadulterated, and there-
fore congress could not, in the meat in-
spection amendment, have intended to ex-
elude them from such transportation.
Washington, Sept. 27.-The postal ad-
minis'ration of Japan has advised this gov-
e nment that packages containing tobacco
destined for any country beyond Japan
are prohibited from passing over the ter-
lilory of Japan, even if sent by parcels
Montgomery, Ala., Sept. 27.-Specials to
the Advertiser indicate that the storm
which raged throughout south and middle
Alabama today did incalculable injury to
the cotton crop. Most of the cotton was
still in the field and this was ruined by
rain and wind. The hay crop also suffered.

SUCCESS BY SOM IS HELD TO BE
From a perusal and comparison of
many current writings on the subject of
success, it appears that no definite mean-
ing is conveyed by the term "success"
In one article a man who after fifteen
years of struggle has established himself
in the grocery business s given as ah
.example of success; in another paper a
rEan who has worked up from messenger
boy at $3 per week to foreman at $25 per
week is set forth as example of what
may be achieved; in still others it is im-
plied, if not actually expressed, that
nothing short of a bank president, rail-
lmad official or millionaire can be really
considered successful. This is confusing
to the young man who wishes to know
what the world expects of him and to
what he must aspire in order to hope
to enter the golden circle of the "suc-
In the advice and interviews kindly
lavished by the men who have been sue-
cez.sful, with a capital S, it appears that
they always claim, explicitly or by impli-
cation, that their success is due to their
virtues. Now it is morally certain that
many of them owe their success to their
immoral qualities, to the fact that they
have overreached, browbeaten and
ruined their competitors, neighbors and
They set themselves upon a pedestal,
however, and invite the public to believe
that it is their virtues which have been
rewarded by an appreciative fate with
the crown of wealth or position. These
things confuse the uninitiated and dis-
courage those who know that they them-
selves deserve some measure of success if
virtue is to be the criterion.
The fact is, the successful, in the ordi-
nary acceptance of that term, usually
conceal the essential point in relating
their experience. Some fortunate acci-
dent, some happy connection, or perhaps
some act of indirection or unconsidered
speculation, was the key, and that point
tlyey do not reveal; they would rather
have it believed that they did it all
by deliberate purpose and by the exer-
cise of respectable virtue and superior
If you will dig into the biography of
almost all wealthy men you will find
some such crisis at which they passed
from the ranks of wage earners to the
class of those to whom success opens
wide its portals. In other words, there
was some definite transaction which
lifted them out of the ranks and made
them eligible to higher honors.
One instance of this kind happened in
this way: A poor and idle, but fairly
intelligent, young man was making a pre-
carious living on the outskirts of the real
estate business in Minneapolis. His vir-
tues were not conspicuous, and if success
were casting about for some one upon
whom to work her magic spell, she would
probably have had to seek this young
n.an at the races or the ball game. He
learned through his real estate connection
that a large semi-public corporation de-
fired to purchase a certain forty-acre
tract near the city and was about to open
negotiations with the owner.
This young man went to the records,
found that the owner of the land was
a widow living in a small Iowa town,
who had not seen her land for over fif-
tcen years; he boarded the train, went to
the widow, informed her that he wished
I- enlarge his farm and would consider
taking her forty-acre tract if she would
sell cheap. She finally agreed to deed
thie land to him for $3,000. The semi-
public corporation two months afterward
raid him $40,000 for the tract, and the
inan is now pointed out as one who has
earned success as the result of certain
virtues which he indeed never possessed.
'this land transaction he always omits
widen he furnishes interviews with a
sl.ort sketch of his path to success.
The matter of chance is also neglected
in the average talk upon this subject.
ln the game of life, where there are so
many players, it must happen by the
law of chance that a few are favored out
of all proportion to the rest. The law
of chance must favor some without re-
gard to personality. If a piece of land
pa-ses through the hands of twenty
owners, some one of them will own it
wlen a cety is located thereon; the other
pineteen will be considered lacking in
f,.resight, while to the lucky owner will
;e ascribed all the virtues which cluster
about the wealthy; whereas he may have
taken the land on a bad debt or in a
horse trade, without foresight and with-
< t deliberation.
If by success one means a competence
secured at the age of 60, it is no doubt
within the reach of all healthy, intelli-
gent young men, and the old-fashioned
Sirtues of frugality, honesty, patience
and calculating judgment are the only
sure means of reaching it.
Even in this modest aspiration the
man with all these virtues in his favor
may fail by one false step, but his ex-
lierience in the school of self-control
will do much to prevent such a step and
after many days of such strenuous and
unromantic plodding, life will open to
him and show him that virtue is not in
iu.in, that the wise and conservative
pecepts of the ages are true, indeed, to
him who masters himself and aims at
u.nly what is possible by honest means
ind patient, contented study of the laws
iby which permanent results are gained.
Speculation has no charm for such a
i.,an; life's certain treasures are too
precious to be staked upon a chance, and
the law that no man shall enjoy what
lie has not earned shall appeal to him
as a law of nature, kind, just and im-
Brilliant exceptions do not form a basis
for reasoning. It is not safe to draw
conclusions from exceptional cases. A
few examples of quick and phenomenal
s-tccess do not form any basis for reas-
oning about the chances of the average
i:'an. It is poor logic to argue from
txeeptions instead of from the rule,
and it is not the rule for towpath boys
to become Presidents. Such examples as
.\!r. Schwab and Mr. Gates are very ex-
e optional cases; it is far safer and saner
to determine what is the usual result of
a lifetime's energy and intelligence and
to lay plans accordingly, than to be led
into 'optimistic conclusions by arguing
fritm striking exceptions and disregard-
iin the dull but inexorable rule.
