Naval Stores Operators are to Have Gainesville and Gulf Railroad Will


a Meeting at Lake City.


Build to Jacksonville.


Il.e City, Fla., Nov. 8-The meeting of with the T. O. A. as much as possible and The Gainesville and Gulf Railroad passes


turpentine operators of this section, which
is to be held in this city on Thursday, the
* 15th inst., will be one of the most import-
ant gatherings which has been held in this
city since the cotton growers of the State
met here.
Mr. D. J. Herring, who is at the head of
this movement and who plioted the meet-
ing of operators a few weeks ago, is en-
thusiastic in reference to this gathering
and states that there is to be a large at-
tendance, representing the industry in Co-
lumbia and adjacent counties.
The object of this meeting is to organ-
ize a local association, such as the one or-
ganiised at Palatka a few weeks ago. It is
the intention of those who are at the head
of this movement to work in connection


ANTI-DRAINAGE MAJORITY.

So Far as Reportet Nearly 4oo-Will
Probably Excee 5aooo. -
Returns on the drainage vote continue
to come inscatteringly. In three of the
counties from which reports have been sent
-Leon, Madison and Walton-only ma-
jorities were reported. It is safe to say
that in these three counties at least twelve
hundred votes were cast. Adding that
number to the total reported it appears
that only sixteen thousand votes have
been reported. Of these the majorities for
drainage reach an aggregate of 991, while
those against it aggregate 5,885, leaving
a net majority of 4,889 against drainage.
It is probable that the vote will be
heavier than was expected. The precincts
that have not yet been reported probably
about 4,000 votes. A complete report will
probably show a majority of over 5,000


against drainage.

to do nothing which will conflict with that
organization. It is argued that a great
deal can be done in this way to remedy
the labor situation. By having an organi-
zation with a local membership, where the
operators of one section meet regularly and
discuss the situation, there are many feat-
ures in connection with the labor question
which can be adjusted. It is believed that
in this way an absolute end may be put
to the recruiting evil in those sections
where these local associations are formed
and are in existence.
Another matter which will come before
'he meeting to be held here on next Thurs-
day is that of affiliation and assistance to
the general organization. It is believed
that the local associations can be of great
value to the general organization.

through one of the most fertile sections
of Florida and it is being extended south
from Irving, in Marion county, to Tampa.
The new owners of the road saw some time
back the necessity of a better outlet, owing
to their failure to secure desirable traffic
arrangements with the Georgia Southern
and Florida Railroad. By coming to Jack-
sonville the road will have a deep water
uotlet and can also have the advantages of
better traffic arrangements farther north.
The road was built in 1804 by V. J. Her-
long. Later it was acquired by a com-
pany. and not long ago passed into control
of Tampa and Atlanta parties. It is un-
derstood that the company has an abun-
dance of funds and that it is in a position
to push the work with a vim.
The coming of this road to Jacksonville
will mean a great deal to this city. It
will give Jacksonville another feeder from
one of the best sections of the State.


Internal Revenue has regarded them as
wholly groundless, it has not been prac-
ticable to meet them with a definite an-
swer in defense of the bureau's position.
A few days ago a complaint was received
from a Minnesota manufacturer of dye-
stuffs, chemicals, etc., who put his objec-
tions in more specific form. This com-
munication Commissioner Yerkes has used
as a text for a letter which will be read
with great interest throughout the chem-
ical and allied trades. The commissioner
shows first that the manufacture of de-
natured alcohol may be engaged in by any
individual, firm or corporation, with no
further restriction than that imposed by
law upon the production of ordinary dis-
tilled spirits; second, that completely de-
natured alcohol may be used by manufac-
turers without any supervision whatever;
and, third, that the slight supervision ex-
ercised over those employing special de-
natured spirits is entirely at the cost of
the government. The commissioner's an-
swer, which appears to be entirely conclu-
sive, is as follows:


Denatured Alcohol Regulations Explana- "r" am in receipt of your letter of the
Dtn 24th instant, in which you state that you


Washington, Nov. 2, 1906.
From time to time since the regulations
for the production and use of denatured
alcohol were promulgated by the Commis-
sioner of Internal Revenue the Treasury
Department has received communications
complaining of the alleged "severe re-
strictions'' and "unnecessary require-
ments" of the Internal Revenue Bureau,

eral public at least, the intent and purpose

Senator A. S. Mann, industrial agent of
the Gainesville and Gulf Railroad, was one
of the visitors to Jacksonville during the
carnival week. In referring to the Gaines-
ville and Gulf Railroad extension, Senator
Mann said:
"The road is to be built to Jacksonville.
Not only has this course been decided upon,
but the right of way has been secured.
There is not a foot lacking in the right of
way and there is but little doubt that the
road will be built to Jacksonville in the
very near future."
Senator Mann accomplished this in a
very short time. In fact it required only
ten days after he had been instructed to
proceed with this work to complete the
purchase of a right of way from Sampson
City to Jacksonville. The road will come
through the counties of Bradford and Du-
val from Sampson City here. It is the
intention to build in an air line from
Sampson City, thus giving a direct line
from Gainesville to Jacksonville.


in the use of dyestuffs in the textile in-
dustries were under the impression that
the free alcohol bill would in a measure
cause the establishment in this country of
large institutions for the manufacture of
dye-stuffs and chemicals, but you state
that you understand that with the re-
strictions the government has placed
'around the operation of the law it sim-
ply will result in making adohol too high
priced for such purposes.'
"Particularizing as to restrictions, you
state:
"'1. We understand that the manufac-
ture of denatured alcohol will be confined
to communities provided with bonded
warehouses, which means the distilleries
of the United States, or where they are
located at the present time. It further
means that it will throw the business in
the hands of a trust or combination which
will further tend to hold up prices.
""2. We also understand that your de-
partment provides for the addition of 10
per cent. wood alcohol to denaturized the
grain alcohol, when a much less quantity
would answer the purpose, and the effect
is to increase the cost by that much."
replyingg to the first objection, I re-
spectfully call your attention to the last
clause of the first paragraph of section 1
*,f the denatured alcohol law which states:
"'Such denatur'ng to be done upon the
application of any registered distillery in
'enaturilng bonded warehouses specially
designated or set apart for denaturing
purposes only, and under conditions pre-
cril-ed by the Commissioner of Internal
Revenue with the approval of the Secre-
tary of the Treasury.'
'You will note that the law provides
that the denaturing of alcohol is to be
done by the proprietor of a registered dis-

4 THE WBUHLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.


Soeth Florida Is Growing.
The marvelous development and substan-
tial progress of South Florida in general,
and DeSoto county Arcadia in particular,
is extremely gratifying. The stimulus to
continued effort and greater activity that
is always born of success is apparent in
all branches of industry and trade. A
brief retrospect of the material advance-
ment along all lines during the last five
years, a just recognition of the indomitable
will and tireless energies of our business
men, the above-the-averager quality and
reliability of the laborer, the superior nat-
ural advantages of our section in climate,
health, soil, timber, pasture lands and
phosphate deposits-all afford creditable
basis for large expectations for the future
and give earnest of a continued, ever-in-
creasing progress and prosperity.-DeSoto
News.

How They Pick the Boys.
Did you ever stop to think that when
a business man looks for a clerk that he
does not hunt for the youth who talks
"sassy," uses slang, smokes cigarettes or
taps beer kegs? says the Gainesville Sun.
They look for the boy who is neat in ap-
pearance, gentlemanly in his actions, clean
in his talk and courteous to those whom he
meets. Although you may think no one
watches you or knows your character, it
is safe to say that there is not a business
man in town but who knows the character
of every boy in it. If you wish to be-
come a useful man, it is you and you alone
that must accomplish it.

FEW HARBORS ABR QUITE DEEP
ENOUGH.
Washington, D. C., Nov. 3.-When See-
retary Metcalf drops the portfolio of com-
merce and labor to rule the destinies of
Uncle Sam's sea force, the service will
find in him a warm friend and ardent
champion of a greater navy. In the Fifty-
sixth Congress, Mr. Metcalf was a member
of the house committee on naval affairs,
and he urged, in session and out, the need
for building more battleships and adding
steadily to the navy. However, Mr. Met-
calf will face a pretty problem that now
confronts Secretary Bonaparte. With the
advent of gigantic battleships, it will be
discovered that the harbors of the country
are not able to receive them. This has
unexpectedly been found to be the case
with the proposed visit of the battleship
Louisiana to New Orleans, a visit which
had to be abandoned because the harbor
could not accommodate the vessel. In
New York harbor dredges are working day
and night to have a channel cut that will
insure the safe entry of the two big liners
now building in Great Britain. That this
condition of affairs should prevail in the
most important north and south ports of
this country is due entirely to the short-
sighted policy, of Congress in devoting
more than 40 per cent of appropriations
to providing for the army and navy, and
for pensions, and the interior department,
and giving less than 3 per cent to rivers
and harbors improvement. Of what use
will be a greater navy if the harbors of
the nation cannot shelter the vessels in
case of war or storm? This is a query
that is being asked here daily, and which
finds no answer. The question probably
will be one of the topics of discussion at
the convention of the national rivers and
harbors congress, which meets here De-
tember 6 and 7.

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA.


W. F. STARK. Manager.


Claim that all the Land

Null an

Demurrer to the bill of complaint filed
by the Wisner Land Company against Gov.
N. B. Broward, et a., as trustees of the


internal improvement fund, was filed yes-
* terday with the clerk of the United States
circuit court by Attorney General W. H.
Ellis and former Gov. W. S. Jennings, at-
torneys for the defendants.
The bill is attacked on some forty odd
grounds, many of which are purely techni-
al and of little general public interest.
Some of the grounds of demurrer, however,
and especially those relating to what the
defendants set up in regard to the legisla-
tive land grants and the powers vested in
the trustees of the internal improvement
fund by the Act of Marh 4, 1879 (Chap-
ter 3167, Laws of Florida), ars of unusual
interest.
The demurrer lays stress on the title to
the lands being irrevocably veted" in
the trustees of the internal improvement
fund, etc., and denies the validity of cer-
tain acts under which the complainant
company claims title.
Certain portions of the Florida laws are
declared contrary to the State esoutitution,
and other grounds of more than usual in-
terest, owing to the claims and counter-
claims that have been made during the dis-
eussion of the drainage amendment that
was defeated on last Tuesday at the polls,
are set up.
Grads eof Demurrer.
After raising the question as to the
jurisdiction of the court, the demurrer sets
up that the complainants have made out
no cause entitling them to review and
relief, and maintains that the bill of com-
plaint does not show that the complaining
company is entitled to the conveyance of
land, as claimed.
It is contended that the rights and pow-
ers vested in the trustees of the internal
improvement fund, by the Act of 1855,
have not been since curtailed nor taken
away, and that the rights given them in
that act they still have.
The Act of March 4. 1879 (Chapter 3167,
Iawe of Florida), which conveys lands to
the Gainesville, Oeala and Charlotte Har-
bor Railroad Company, and under which
the complainants are claiming title, is held
to be inoperative and void. The same posi-
S tion is taken in regard to other similar
grants.


i Grants in Florida are

d Void.
the railroads will never succeed in proving
title to the land, etc.
Then the demurrer sets up that, inas-
much as the trustees of the internal im-
provement fund, by this Act of 1855, have
control of these lands, the courts "cannot
control, restrict nor limit" their (the trus-
tees') powers and rights in the absence of
fraud in administration.
Issuing Certificates.
Next the demurrer takes up the question
of the certificates issued to railroads by
former trustees of the internal improve-
ment fund and contends that the present
trustees are in no sense bound by those
certificates.
The seventeenth ground of demurrer
reads that the bill does not show that the
"trustees are authorized by law to issue
lands as therein stated, nor that such cer-
tificates having been issued by certain
trustees would be binding or of any force
or effect upon the sueeessors of the said
trustees so issuing the said certificates."
The next ground of demurrer that is of
general public interest is the twenty-sixth,
which sets up that the legislative land
grants since 1855 are null and void because,
the title to the lands being in the trustees,
the legislature had no power to grant these
lands to any person or corporation.
Are Uncolstitational.
The demurrer then 'takes up certain leg-
islative acts. under which title is claimed
by the complainant company, and, owing
to certain alleged defects in the manner
and method and method with which they
were passed and the matter dealt with, the
demurrer asks the court to declare Chap-
ter 3168, 3170, etc., void and contrary to
Article I, Section 16, of the Constitution
of Florida. Article mT, Section 16, reads
as follows:
"Each law enacted in the legislature
shall embrace but one subject and matter
properly connected therewith, which sub-
ject shall be briefly expressed in the title;
and no law shall be amended or revised by
reference to its title only; but in such
ease the act, as revised or section as
amended, shall be re-enacted and published
at length."
The concluding grounds of demurrer are
that the acts conveying the lands under
which title is claimed, are null and void.

The same is the case in every other de-
partment, and the directors of the fair as-
sociation were for a time, to use a slang
phrase, "strictly up against it" on account
of the great demand for exhibit space.
The question of expense was not for a
moment considered, but questions more
serious arose. These questions were in re-
gard to space for new buildings and exten-
sions, and the matter of securing skilled
labor sufficient to do the necessary work.
The fair association is composed of men,
however, who are accustomed to handling
difficult propositions, and by the end of
the present week arrangements will have
been made to grant the requests of ab-
solutely every exhibitor in every depart-
ment of exhibition.
In view of the above state of affairs,
President Brown and his co-workers are
desirous of having every man, woman and
child in Florida attend the fair. Many
did not attend last year, thing the fair
would be only a partial success. Every
citizen of the State is invited and urged
to attend before the fair closes on Thanks-

are coming from other sections. There
are at present a larger number of horses
on the track than were at the fair at any

out doubt be trebled.

wood, lumber laden from Jacksonville, Fla.,
to New York, was relieved by Capt. Chase,
of the steamer Howard, of the Merchants
and Miners' Transportation Line, which ar-
rived here today from Philadelphia. The
Howard sighted the Haywood seven miles
off Absecom light last evening, flying dis-
tress signals. Capt. Chase found that the
schooner had experienced rough weather,
that her provisions had given out and that
the crew of seven men were badly in need
of food and water. These were supplied
to them.

Tampa, Nov. G.-What will beyond
doubt be the most important of all public
meetings held during the State fair will
be that called by the Tampa Board of
Trade at the suggestion of President
Brown, of the fair association, for the
discussion of the all-absorbing question of
immigration, and for the formation of a
State organization, the object of which
will be to systematically take up and
work on this matter that is so vital to
the great and varied interests of Florida.
Realizing the great and constantly in-
creasing need of high-class labor in Flor-
ida, President Brown, nearly a year ago,
began the agitation of the question of
* forming such an organization. The meet-
ing should and will be attended by many
of the most prominent business men of
Florida.
Written invitations have been extended
to the board of trade and similar organiza-
tions of the various cities and towns of
Florida, asking that they appoint delegates
to this conference, and many will have rep-
resentation. The date set for the meet-
ing is Tuesday, November 20, and the
visitors will be welcomed and entertained
by the Tampa Board of Trade, city council,
directors of the fair association and lead-
ing citizens of Tampa and South Florida
generally.
One of the principal objects of the meet-
ing will be the drafting of resolutions,
calling upon the legislature to pass such
legislation as will prove beneficial in the
matter of securing desirable immigrants.
The question of having established at the
State capital a bureau of immigration,
with a competent and energetic man at
its head, has been widely and favorably
discussed in many sections of the State,
and one of the principal objects of the
conference will be to take steps that will
cause the legislature to establish such a
bureau. Florida has never been adver-
t.sed in a proper manner, and for this
reason more than any other, is today
suffering for the want of good labor, skill-
ed and otherwise, having to rely to a great
extent on negro labor of the worthless
and unreliable kind, in the turpentine
camps, factories, farms and, in fact, every
branch of industrial effort in which man-
ual labor is needed. From every city and
town in the State there arises a con-
stantly unanswered cry for skilled labor,
and particularly is this the case in the
mechanical line. Taking Tampa as an
illustration, building operations are months
behind, merely because of a dearth of
carpenters, bricklayers and builders gener-
ally. This in spite of the fact that no-
where in the country does skilled labor
receive higher wages than in Tampa, Jack-
sonville and other Florida cities. Another
Illustration lies in the fact that the At-
lantic Coast Line railway more than two
years ago appropriated several million
dollars for improvement work on its lines,
particularly in Florida. This work, ac-
cording to officials, has been retarded con-
tinually by the scarcity of labor, and the
same complaint is heard from the other
railways traversing and operating in Flor-
ida.
Florida is developing more rapidly than
any other Southern State, and this devel-
opment would be infinitely more rapid if
eager and willing capital could get labor
sufficient to carry out their varied plans;
therefore, no question is as important to


citizens generally as that of immigration.
From all indications the conference re-
ferred to will be largely attended, and
every citizen of Florida, who is interested
in the upbuilding of his State, should at-
tend and assist in materializing the plans
necessary for gaining desired ends in this
important matter.

to t1le east coast. uol. Wells is vice-presi-
dent and general manager of a company in-
corporated n 1903 and known as the Cen-
tral rririda and Indian River railroad.
the purpose of the company is to con-
st uct a line from a point a few miles
south ot Atelbourne to a point known as
Deer P'oint, and irom that point one line
will run to Bartow and another line to
Orlando. The object being to open for
development the rich farming and turpen-
tine land along the St. Johns river and
Lake \ ashington, and also to furnish an
outlet to the sea coast for the southern
portion of the State. At the point of
starting, on the coast, there is a natural
deep water harbor, which can be improved
to receive the largest steamers. The rich
phosphate beds in the vicinity of Bartow
and the fruit and vegetable interests of
this and adjacent counties would be very
materially beneted by cheaper and quicker
transportation and the country rapidly im-
proved that is now but thinly settled and
operated. In addition to this such a line
would open a new direct line of passenger
traffic from the south and eastern parts
of the State, which would be of great ad-
vantage to Orlando. Thousands of tou-
rists come to Florida every year who do
not see anything but the east coast, for the
reason that the connections are so long
and disagreeable to get from Palm Beach,
Miami, etc., to the central and southern
portions of the State.
Orlando is alive to the advantages of
such a line as Mr. Wells means to construct
and will give him every possible aid and
encouragement.
A short time ago Mr. Wells sent samples
of the peat that is manufactured in this
city to experts in England, who examined
it with a view to ascertaining its value
as a fuel for producing electric power, etc.
He has received the most flattering reports
from the engineers who tested it, and says
there is no question but what there is a
great future for the manufacture of peat
in all parts of Florida when the proper
material is found. The Orlanr;o plant has
passed beyond the experimental stage and
Messrs. Cheney and Payne are developing
the business as fast as possible.
Mr. Wells visited the factory this morn-
ing and was pleased with the plant and
its work.

Severe Storm in Cuba.
Havana, Nov. 7.-A severe storm of wind
and rain is reported in Santa Clara prov-
ince to the eastward. Telegraphic com-
munication with Santa Clara was inter-
rupted at an early hour this afternoon.

From the extent of the vote in this state
the people pear not to have been unduly
excited over the election and the issues
of the campaign.

What a good thing the negro has been el-
iminated from politics in this and others of
of the Southern states. There was no holi-
day necessary for the naval stores farms
and the negro laborer was hardly aware
that there was an election being held.

Operators In the vicinity of Lake City
are asked to make it a point to be at the
meeting of operators, which is to be held
in that city on the 15th inst. This meet-
ing is forthe purpose of perfecting an or-
ganizatoin and there ought to be a large
attendance.

Turpentine operators everywhere are ju-
bulent over the failure of the Savannah
combination to control the market on naval
stores. There was cause for this jubilant
feeling, but the operators are not to un-
derstand that this is to be the last at-
tempt. Unless the producers and the hon-
est factors guard well their interests the
Savannah combination will play the trick
and make a success of it from their point
of view. It is well to keep a weather eye
out for that bunch. They are always on
the alert and of course always ready to do
what they can to put money into their
coffers, no matter whom they have to
criple in order to do so.


DRAINAGE AMEZDMEHT BEAT.
By an overwhelming majority Governor
Broward's drainage amendment has been
defeated. The voters of Florida have re-
pudiated at the polls one of the most iniq-
uitous schemes which was ever conceived
in this State through desire for political
prestige. They have repudiated a scheme
which sought to unjustly tax lands in this
State to an exorbitant extent for tile
purpose of reclaiming lands for the State,
lands which, even if they would have pos-
sessed the value claimed, would not justify
the system under which they were to have
been reclaimed. The plan to tax lands
which were high and dry for drainage pur-
poses, when the owners of same had no in-
terest and could not have been benefited by
the drainage of the everglades, was a
most dangerous issue even to submit to
the people of any State, who could not
grasp the full meaning of the scheme un-
der which the Governor of Florida intended
to operate. Never has there been such
an unjust proposition submitted to the
people of any State and its repudiation by
the honest voters of Florida demonstrates
that even the Governor and his cabinet,
with all the prestige they could bring to
bear and with all of the plausible argu-
ments and misrepresentations, cannot se-
cure the endorsement of any measure
which has for its object the establishment
of an autocratic commission which would
have the authority to tax the people of
Florida at will.
The drainage amendment has been lost,
and the Record congratulates the people
of this State, and especially the naval
stores and lumber interest, which would
have been most affected had the amend-
ment been carried. What the future
course of Governor Broward will be inref-
erenee to drainage of the everglades re-
mains to be seen. It is known that he has
his mind made up, and the fact that he
and his board of drainage commissioners,
who have been operating under the act
of the legislature, have appropriated funds
which the laws of the State say shall be
set aside for other public purposes, leads
to the impression that the Governor will
strain every point to push the work which
has already begun and which has been
making such slow progress. But the peo-
ple of Florida have spoken in no mistaken
terms and Governor Broward and his cab-
inet should heed the lesson conveyed in
the recent election returns. It is hardly
probable that the people of Florida will
stand a further usurpation of power and
that they next time they have an oppor-
tunity to express themselves will sink be-
neath an avalanche of votes, men as well
as measures.
The State press was almost a unit in
fighting this scheme of the Governor, de-
spite the fact that they were accused of
having been subsidized or purchased. Now
that the election is over and right has tri-
umphed, the State press is enjoying time-
ly references to the result. In Wednes-
day's issue of the Tampa Tribune, Editor
Stovall says:
"The State of Florida has been saved
a heinous wrong. The effort t alter the
fundamental law of the State has failed.
The design to fasten upon it an amend-
ment to the Constitution giving to five
men the uncontrolled right to tax the citi-
zens and expend their money without pos-
sibility of let or hindrance, has been de-
feated. The infamous drainage amend-
ment has been overwhelmingly downed by
the ballots of an awakened people. From
nearly all sections of the State has come
the same story, showing that the position
so earnestly taken by The Tribune has


been everywhere understood and its truth
appreciated. Opposition has unquestion-
ably been on the broad ground of fealty
to the State and a stern determination to
crush the effort on the part of designing
politicians to place her under the thral-
dom of an irresponsible machine. The
vote, we repeat, has not been an expression
for or against the reclaiming of valuable
lands, but has been an indignant protest
on the part of the people against the iron-
clad rule of a would-be oligarchy that
even went so far as to attempt to filch
from the commonwealth the sacred right
of eminent domain and robe themselves
with its sovereign powers. The Tribune
wishes to express most heartfelt thanks
to the voters of Tampa, of Hillsborough
county, and of her sister counties in this
portion of the State for the splendid ma-
jority of two to one against the amend-
ment. We have labored earnestly and al-
most alone in arousing public sentiment
against the scheme; in opening the eyes
of the ignorant to the danger into which
they were about to be led, and in awaken-
ing the conscience of all classes of citi-
zens to compel them to do their duty by
their State in the face of every art and
wile of those who were menacing her con-
stitutional integrity. We feel that we
may justly be proud of the good work we
have done, and that to us belongs the
right to felicitate the undaunted host of
loyal citizens who have upheld our view
as being for the best interest of our be-
loved and flower-decked peninsula."

The movement on the part of the op-
erators in various parts of the turpentine
belt to form organizations and to affiliate
with the T. O. A., is a good one. Aside
from the many other benefits to be de-
rived, the operators by this plan may do a
great deal to prevent the recruiting evil.
It is good to be united and these small
and local associations can do a great deal
of good..

(Continued from page 7.)
permit the establishment of any kind of
a distillery authorized by law, and as the
law authorizes the construction of any
kind of a plant at which ethyl alcohol can
be manufactured, and permits the use in
the manufacture of ethyl alcohol of any
raw material containing sugar, starch or
similar fermentable vegetable matter ca-
pable of any raw .breureiadlsogv k
pable of producing ethyl alcohol, the al-
cohol industry can take such range and
scope as economic conditions and business
demands may justify.
"Furthermore, this office will permit the
establishment of a denaturing bonded
warehouse on the premises of any regis-
tered distiller who may desire to manu-
facture alcohol of such degree of proof as
can under the regulations be denatured,
to-wit, 180 degrees. Large and small dis-
tillers will be treated exactly alike.
"If the demands of business call for the
establishment of distilleries in localities
in which they are not now operated, this
department will go as far as the law au-
thorizes in permitting the establishment
of such distilleries. Under the existing
laws, the government, through this de-
partment, must exercise such surveillance
over the revenue. Internal revenue offi-
cers must have supervision at all distil-
leries at which alcohol either for dena-
turation or tax payment is manufactured,
but the distiller does not pay the expense
of this surveillance.
"The government stands every cent of
the cost of supervision. This being the
(Continued on page 15.)


case, the supervision cannot have any ef-
fect upon the establishment of distiller-
ies for legitimate purposes. It cannot de-
ter an honest man from going into the
business of manufacturing alcohol, either
for the purpose of denaturation or for
tax payment. If, therefore, alcohol with-
drawn from bond free of tax, under the
provisions of the act of June 7, 1906, goes
into the market with absolutely no bur-
dens except the actual cost of production,
it would seem that that would be as much
as could be asked.
"As to the use of alcohol in the manu-
facture of dyes, this office holds that alco-
hol can be withdrawn frob bond free of
tax and denatured for use in the manufae-
ture of anything that dies not come with-
in the purview of the terms beverage or a
liquid medicinal preparation. Therefore,
alcohol can be used in the manufacture of
dyestuffs.
"As to your second cause of complaint,
* I respectfully invite your attention
to sections 26 and 58, and to the whole
of Part IUI, sections 79 to 110, inclusive.
"Section 26 prescribes that the agents
used for complete denaturation shall be
methyl alcohol and bensine; approximate-
ly 9.05 per cen. of methyl alcohol and .45
of 1 per cent. of benzine. Section 68 pre-
eribes that alcohol denatured as provided
in section 26 shall be classed as complete-
ly denatured alcohol, and that alcohol de-
natured in any other manner shall be
classed as specially denatured alcohoL
"Section 79 authorizes special denatur-
ants, and section 80 expressly states that
the Commissioner of Internal Revenue
will consider any formula for special de-
naturation that may be submitted. It re-
stricts the special denaturants to one for
each class of industries, unless it should
be shown that there are good reasons for
additional special denaturants for any in-
dustry.
"The rest of Part III. deals with the
manner of obtaining permission to use
special denaturants and the use of such
special denaturants. Manufacturers and
others desiring to use special denaturants
are expressly invited to submit any form-
ula they may desire for special denatura-
tion, and it is expected that manufactur-
ers will avail themselves of the opportun-
ity.
"There are more restrictions thrown
around the use of specially denatured alco-
hol than apply to completely denatured
alcohol, but the government pays the cost
of these restrictions. They cost the man-
ufacturer nothing and are intended as a
safeguard to the revenue and a protection
to honest manufacturers of and dealers in
tax paid distilled spirits. If they add
nothing to the cost of the alcohol it Is
difficult to understand what objections the
users of the alcohol could urge to them.
"In view of the above, it ought to be
plain that so far as this department is
concerned the American farmer has the
same opportunity of converting into aleo-
hol the 'products of his field,' as Las the
German farmer mentioned in your letter.
It is simply a question of whether or not
the American farmer wants to enter into
the manufacture of alcohol.
"As to the manufacturer of dyea, it is
simply a question of whether or not he
wants to go to the trouble of finding and
submitting a special denaturant suitable
for use in his industry, and which this
department thinks can safely be adopted
as a denaturant.
"If the farmer finds that as a business
proposition the manufacture of alcohol for
domestic and industrial uses is, like the

FROM FERTILE FLORIDA.

What They Are Doing in the Land of the
Grapefruit and Pine.
The strawberry crop around La Villa
looks very promising.
The movement of oranges from Palmetto
is very heavy now.
The damage done at West Palm Beach
by last week's storm was very slight.
Oranges and grapefruit are ripening very
rapidly at Malabar. The crop is a good
one.
A. M. Terwilligar, of Mims, a carload
orange shipper, is sending out some nice
fruit now.
William Wigton, representing Phijlip
Eddy, of Providence, is making his head-
quarters at Fort Myers.
Conductor Bugbee says lie has bought
3,500 barrels and his brother 9,000 for their
potato crop at Hastings this year.
Fall shipping of pineapples from Stuart
has begun with good fruit and g-ood prices.
There will not be much gardening, as
pineapples pay better.


Dr. Richardson, of Brooksville, reports
a good orange and grapefruit crop in his
section. He says Frank Sampson estimates
his crop at 15,000 boxes.

There will be considerable garden truck
raised in White City this winter and a
number of growers are making prepara-
tions to raise strawberries.

W. Scott shipped the first solid car of
oranges of the season from Bowling Green
last week. The movement from that point
is now on in full force.
The packing and shipping of oranges is
the chief industry of Homeland at present.
Iie oranges are coloring nicely since the
weather has turned cooler.

A. L. Hobkirk, of Citra, says the orange
groves in his section are looking particu-
marly well. He has a small grove and will
ship (00 or 700 boxes this season.

Dr. E. Neve, of Tampa, says the orange
crop in that section is but little larger
than last year. He thinks the buyers
should all hold out for $1 a box on the
trees.
There will be a large acreage of fall
vegetables planted at Cocoanut Grove this
year, mostly peppers and eggplants. Jack-
son Peacock is putting in 100 acres of pep-
pers and eggplants.
Up to last Saturday 34,611 boxes of or-
anges had been shipped from Fort Myers
this season. For same date last year the
shipments were 19,506 boxes and two years
ago, 25,258
The land department of the F. E. C. rail-
way is going to reclaim and place on the
market several thousand acres of valuable
pineapple and truck growing lands near
West Palm Beach.
The first car of oranges was shipped
from Fort Ogden last week by I. H. Trabue
and C. C. Morgan. It consisted of 256
boxes of fine fruit, bright and well ripened,
and went to a New York house.
The work of planting pineapples is still
going on and White City is going to rank
as one of the great producing centres. The
growers have found that the land is greatly
improved by under draining.
The famous Ingleside orange grove at
St. Petersburg has been purchased this
week from W. L. Ainslie by T. W. Graham
and W. B. Hare. This grove is one of the
largest anl most valuable on the Pinellas
peninsula.
W. H. Harris, of Palmbetto, has a flour-
ishing orange grove from which he expects
to get one thousand boxes. From one
four-year-old budded grapefruit tree last
year lie gathered 10 boxes, which he sold
for $2.40 per box.
Money was wired to Tampa last week
from Albuquerque, N. M., with an order for
a carload of Florida oranges and grapefruit.
This will be the first car ever shipped to
New Mexico from Tampa. It is probably
the first ever sent to that territory from
any Florida point.
It can hardly be said that the citrus
fruit crop has begun to move from Oviedo
yet, only about four or five cars of oranges
and grapefruit thus far having been ship-
ped. About the first of next month ship-
ping will begin in earnest. The crop around
there is probably about as large as last
year.-New York Fruit and Produce News.

receiving the exhibits.
Commissioner White inspected the space
that had been chosen for the Duval ex-
hibit, and gave general directions as to
what changes he desired made, what plat-
forms and shelves he wished built, and ar-
ranged to have all other details attended
to by competent workmen. He will again
visit Tampa before the exhibits begin ar-
riving there, in order to not only see that
all his instructions have been carried out,
but to be on hand to receive the displays
when they arrive.
The contracts for the carpenter work
to be done in the exhibit space chosen for
Duval county have all been let by Mr.
White, and before he left Tampa to return
to his home city the carpenters had gone
to work making the changes desired, build-
ing in shelves, and preparing to place
some of the platforms in position. Com-
missioner White is satisfied that when all
the preliminary work has been finished
Duval county will have one of the most
desirable exhibit places on the entire
grounds.
In order to simplify as much as possible
the shipping of exhibits, Commissioner
White has had a large number of addressed
tags printed. These can be had by all in-
tending exhibitors upon request, and every
one intending to ship a display, no matter
of what kind, to the Tampa State Fair,
is urged to secure some of these tags.
These tags, and the address thereon is
printed in large letters to avoid misread-
ings and consequent misshipments, read
as follows:
"Duval County Exhibit State Fair,
"Care J. W. White, Fair Commissioner,
"Tampa, Fla.".
All displays must be shipped to this
address, and in order to avoid all possible
confusion and the irritation of delays and
any possible misshipments, Conmmissioner
White urges all exhibitors to secure as
many of these tags as they think they will
need.
In speaking of the coming fair, and es-
pecially about the tagging of exhibits,
Commissioner White said yesterday, among
other things:
"I wish to urge upon all exhibitors the
advantage resulting from uniformity of
addressing shipments, and that this can be
easily secured by attaching the tags I
have printed. I have already sent out a
large number of these tags to intending
exhibitors, but I want every one in line.
"There are plenty of tags on hand at
my office, in Pythian Castle, on Forsyth
street. Exhibitors intending to ship dis-
plays can secure tags by calling at my
office, sending a messenger after them,
writing for them, or by telephoning. Any
way will suit me, so the exhibitors get
them.
"No one need be afraid to ask for what


tags as each exhibitor thinks that he will
be able to use. The use of these tags is
going to save lots of trouble, and I hope
all intending exhibitors will swing into line
and get them.
"While at Tampa on this last trip," con-
tinued Mr. White, "I arranged to have a
number of tables placed in position in the
Duval exhibit space, both in the general
exhibit building and in the educational
building and the woman's building as well.
"These tables are for the free use of
exhibitors. There will be enough on hand
to meet all demands, when exhibits are
carefully arranged. All I want now is
to get the exhibits there, and if all who
have promised to do so send their displays,
Duval county will make a showing worthy
of the high place this county holds in
Florida.
"I wish to again call especial attention
t othe fact that there is no charge what-
ever for exhibit space. This is given abso-
lutely free.
"It might do well to emphasize through
the papers that both the Seaboard Air
Line and the Atlantic Coast Line railroads
will make no freight charges on exhibits.
This means that exhibitors get this match-
less advertising practically free, the only
cost being a comparatively small one of
preparing the displays for shipment."
Mr. White stated that everything is ac-
tivity and hustle on the State Fair
grounds; that enthusiasm is high, and that
the State Fair this year is going to be one
of the best State fairs ever given in the
South.
"Please call attention," he continued, "to
the fact that Wednesday, November 21,
1906, is 'Jacksonville Day.' The people of
Tampa have always made 'Tampa Day' a
big thing at all Jacksonville affairs, and
it is but natural that they should expect
Jacksonville to turn in now and show their
appreciation. The credit of the city is at
stake, and I trust that Jacksonville will
make the day allotted to her one of the
most memorable of the entire State Fair.
'-The people will have a big exhibit and
one of which they need not feel ashamed.
Tampa is famous for its hospitality, and
Tampa is ready to extend every hospital-
ity to the visitors from the metropolis of
the State. 1 hope every one will arrange,
as far as possible, to visit the State Fair
on 'Jacksonville Day' and make it a big
success.
"The railroads are helping this along,
and the fare for the round trip will be only
$4.25. N one can find fault with that rate,
and the opportunity it offers for seeing one
of Florida's busiest and most progressive
cities, as well as attending the biggest
State Fair ever given in the South is one
that few can afford to miss."
In summing up. Mr. White asked that
-pecial attention be called to the fact that
all exhibits and displays must be in place
by Wednesday, November 14th, at 12
o'clock noon. After that hour no more

ligates himself, if elected a member, to be
bound by all provisions of the constitution
and by-laws, rules and regulations of said
association. My factor is hereby author-
ized to pay for me my annual dues on call
of the secretary."
Space is given for the applicant to desig-
nate the number of stills operated, with
the capacity of each. The dues are gov-
erned by the number of barrels of spirits
produced.
The operator who produces not more
than 500 barrels of spirits annually is
assessed $5; not more than $1,000 barrels,
$10; for upwards of 1,000 barrels, $15.
The operators are hopeful that they
have reached a solution of the labor prob-
lem as concerns them. Their great trouble
has been in retaining help. Being bound
by the same scale of prices, which has been
published, they feel fairly well assured
that there will be no inducement for hands
to leave one turpentine camp for another.
The scale paid in Georgia is slightly higher
than that paid in Florida.
As the article adopted conveys practi-
cally the gist and purpose of the organiza-
tion, it is reproduced in full, as follows:
Fines for Violation of Agreement.
Section 1. All complaints shall be in-
vestigated by the Committee on Com-
plaints. The person complained against
shall have reasonable notice of the time
and place of hearing and shall be given an
opportunity to present his defense.
See. 2. Any member found guilty, after
due hearing, of a violation of any provis-
ion of the constitution or by-laws or of
any of the rules and regulations adopted
by the association, shall be subject to a
fine of not exceeding two hundred and
fifty dollars ($250.00), to be imposed in
the discretion of the Committee on Com-


pulsion and of the grounds therefore, shall
be promptly thereafter transmitted by the
secretary to each member of this associa-
tion and of similar associations, and to all
factorage houses in Georgia, Florida and
Alabama. Expulsion from this association
shall operate as an expulsion likewise
from any sub-association to which the
expelled member may have belonged. And
no member of this association shall there-
after become a partner or other business
associate of such expelled member in the
turpentine business, nor become interested
in any corporation engaged in the turpen-
tine business in which he may be interest-
ed unless and until he shall be re-instated
as a member in good standing of this
association.
Sec. 5. Any member ceasing to be a
turpentine operator in the State of Geor-
gia shall be entitled to have refunded to
him such portion of the proceeds of any
drafts given as provided in the foregoing
sections as has not been applied to, or
become liable for, the payment of fines.
Section 6. Nothing contained in this
article shall be binding upon any member
of the association until as many as two-
thirds (2-3) of the turpentine operators
in the State of Georgia, as the number may
be ascertained by the secretary, shall have
become members of said association.

THE WEEiIiKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.










THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.


MOVEMENT INAUGURATED BY EX-
ECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF SOUTH-
ERN COTTON ASSOCIATION.
Atlanta, Nov. 8.-A movement designed
"to maintain a profitable price for cotton
against the conspiracies of Wall street,"
was inaugurated this evening at a meet-
ing of the executive committee of the
Southern Cotton Association.
The method proposed for accomplishing
this purpose is the formation of "the
Southern Cotton Company," with an au-
thorized capital of $100,000,000 to build
warehouses, buy up cotton at reasonable
prices, and otherwise endeavor to regulate
selling so that cotton shall be traded in
on the basis of its intrinsic value, rather
than on speculation.
Fifteen members of the executive com-
mittee of the Southern Cotton Association
attended tonight's meeting. They repre-
sented all the cotton states and included
for the most part very prominent planters.
A tentative plan for organization of the
proposed buying and handling company
was presented by a special committee, con-
sisting of Messrs. J. P. Allison, of North
Carolina; E. D. Smith, of South Carolina;
8. A. Witherspoon, of Mississippi; F. L.
Maxwell, of Louisiana; and J. C. Hickley,
of Texas.
This charter provides for organization of
a stock company with an authorized capi-
tal of $100,000,000, and an initial capital of
perhaps $10,000,000. It is proposed that
the affairs of the company shall be ad-
ministered by a board of thirty-five direc-
tors, who shall estimate fair cotton prices.
and endeavor to have them maintained.
The management of the concern is to erect
storage warehouses, conduct buying, hold-
ing and selling. The par value of the stock
is to be $5 per share, opening membership
to small as well as large planters, members
of the Southern Cotton Association and
others. Should directors believe cotton to
be worth more than the Wall street price
it will pay such price regardless of the
so-called market value and hold the prod-
uct for a rise.
After discussing and amending in some
respects the plan for organization, it was
decided to defer final action on the project
until the next meeting of the executive
committee, to be held in January.

IMMIGRATION DIRECT TO THE
SOUTH.
Something new for the South is involv-
ed in the arrival of an immigrant ship at
Charleston on Sunday. It means the in-
auguration of a direct immigration to the
South to supply the demand for labor. It
has been many years since immigrants
were landed at a Southern port, and ar-
rangements for the coming of the immi-
grant ship to Charleston were made with
the United States Immigration authorities,
who sanctioned the movement and sent in-
* sectors to Charleston.
This immigration movement was an
event of such a nature that Editor Wade
H. Harris, of the Charleston Evening
chronicle went to Charleston to see the
ship come in and take a look at the immi-
grants. On Sunday lie sent this interesting
dispatch to the Charlotte Observer:
"Mr. E. J. Watson, commissioner of im-
migration for South Carolina, is not only
solving the labor problem for this State,
but the servant problem as well. That
was plainly manifested in scenes at the
steamship wharf when the immigrants
were landed this morning from the Witte-
kind. There were approximately five hun-
dred men, women and children.
"The personnel of the crowd showed


mans, but in the party was a number of
attractive French servants. There was no
tough element in the crowd. Some were
common looking, but the majority were
well dressed and intelligent. All had been
parcelled out to employes before the day
was half over and tonight many are sleep-
ing in new homes on South Carolina farms
and in South Carolina towns, having been
taken direct from the steamship to trains
waiting at the wharf.
"I asked Mayor Rhett, who has charge
of affairs, to give me a dozen servants to
bring to Charlotte. They were all taken,
lie said.
"Pointing to an attractive German fam-
ily of six, I asked for them.
"'Impossible,' said Mayor Rhett. 'There
are only five hundred people and we have
applications for one thousand.' This ex-
perimental shipment of immigrants is a
great success. Another shipment will be
brought in the latter part of December or
January."
Wilmington people wanted to get some
of those immigrants, but it was ascertained
that they were all spoken for before they
left Berlin. A prominent citizen says his
brother, who is engaged in planting in
South Carolina, had in his bid for 10 of
the immigrants and was at charleston to
receive them. People who had engagements
for the aliens gathered at Charleston to
get their quota, so that the strangers have
homes to go to without being dumped
down in a strange land to seek employ-
ment. It is said that most of the immi-
grants on the Wittekind are weavers from
Au-trian provinces.-Wilmongton Star.

manufacture of meal and flour, a good
thing, then there exists absolutely no rea-
son, so far as the internal revenue laws
are concerned, for his not going into the
business. In view of the fact that distil-
lers only can manufacture alcohol, and
that users of alcohol are forced to pur-
chase their alcohol from distillers, just as
consumers of woolen goods have to go to
the woolen mills for their woolen goods,
it is difficult to understand, even if the
law requiring the denaturing of alcohol to
be done by distillers were not in the way,
what difference it would amke to the man-
ufacturer whether the alcohol is denatur-
ed before or after its purchase."
"I presume that it is your intention to
use alcohol completely denatured, in ac-
cordance with the provisions of section 26
of regulations No. 30, and that the r3om
about which you inquire is the starercom
provided for in section 75 of -aid regula-
tions. If I am correct, yo'i are advised
that you can, under the re.ulation3, con-
struct a denatured alcohol storeroom pre-
scribed ,y section 75 of regulati i o. 30
of wire. provided you construmt it in such
a manner that it can be seeorely, and that
the door thereto can be securely locked.
"It is not practicable to pr-scribe with
part clarity specifications for .<-nstruct-
ing the storerooms required of m'a nufac-
ti-eres niing denatured alcohol. hut the
que-tion of whether or not a particular
storeroom is secure insist Ies :ond will be
left to an extent to the local ,'licer. The
storeroom must in each case lb. a;ccurately
described in the application for p-.rmit, ..
that this department may be f.lIvy li:t on
notice as to the character of the room inl
which it is proposed to store dconatured al-
cohol.
It will be seen from the commnis-ioner's
letter that the requirements of the bureau
with respect to the storage of denatured
spirits are only such as can be easily com-
plied with by any manufacturer.

ig Carl Cleared.
Pensacola, Fla., Nov. .--One of the larg-
est cargoes of naval stores to be cleared
from the local custom house was cleared
today, when the British steamer Benedict,
Capt. Roberts, of $1,758 net tons, took out
papers for Hamburg, with 20,642 barrels
of rosin and 2,000 barrels of turpentine.
The total valuation of the cargo is about
$150,000, and it is among the largest and
most valuable to go from here this season
of this product. Another clearance, where
a large and valuable cargo is t be shipped
to a foreign port, was secured by the
British steamer Euterpe, which is going to
Havre, carrying as eargo 5,00 square bales
of cotton, 3,410 tos of phosphate and 184,-
970 superficial feet of pine lumber.

MADE FAST TIME.

S Two Schooers Made the Trip from New
York in Five Days.
The schooners Mary Bradford Pierce and
John H. May arrived at Mayport at noon
Tuesday, having made the trip from New
York to the entrance of the river in a re-
markably short time.
Both schooners sailed out of New York
harbor Thursday afternoon for Jackson-
ville.. They kept pretty well together all
the way down and arrived at the same
hour.
Both skippers are proud of the record
they made and when they came to the city
Tuesday afternoon their many friends here
were surprised t see them, little dreaming
that they could make the trip down in
such a short period.
The skippers declare that their vessels
apparently few over the water. Capt.
Lane, of the Pierce, and Capt. Still, of the
May, are both old traders here and are
wll know in marine aeiles

LET US HOPE SO.
A prominent ctizen of Chattanooga,
Mr. N. F. Thompson, has found an ingen-
ios solution for the race problem, the
vagrancy problem and the Panama canal
labor problem, all in one, and ti has merit
enough in it to recommend it to careful
consideration. At the approaching meeting
in Nashville, Tenn., of the Southern Im-
migration and Quarantine Conference, Mr.
Thompson wi present his views on the
subject and press them upon President
Roosevelt and Chairman Shonts of the
Panama Canal nommisson as the proper
way to get plenty of labor to build the
canal and at the same time rid hte South
of its vagrant negro population now en-
gaged in shooting craps and otherwise
dodging honest labor.--Ive Oak Demoerat.

They at at Tampa.
No, Maud, that noise Hke a million bees
busing in a cage is not the sound of a
gubernatorial boom in Tampa. Tt is mere-
ly the wheels revolving in myriads of
* heads that are trying to figure it out to
get to Tampa on the frst day of the fair
and stay until they can eat Thanksgiving
dinner with Joe Smith or Mannel Garida.-

BIG PHOSPRATE DEAL IN ALACHUA
COUNTY.
Cainesville, ov. A-One of the largest
deals consummated in Alaehua county foi
many years will soon be concluded, which
is virtually 4 reorganization of the exten.
ive phosphate Interests of the Camps in
the western end of the county. The deal
involves a capital stock of a quarter of s
million dollars, and the headquarters wiT
be in OalaeavOa.


A trust deed is now being recorded in
the office of the clerk of the circuit court
for Alaehua county from the Albion Min-
ing and Manufacturing Company, to the
Savannah Bank and Trust Company, au-
thorizing the issuing of bonds not to ex-
ceed $250,000. The deed is signed by P. D.
Camp as president, with an attest of R.
J. Camp, secretary.
This deal will mean a great deal to the
commercial interests of the county, espec-
ially the West End, where the principal
business will be transacted, as it will mean
the employment of a large number of
hands.
The Albion Mining and Manufacturing
Company is already a corporation of great
magnitude. For several years this com-
pany has been operating to great profit,
but the reorganization of the Camp inter-
ests, of which this is a part, will greatly
enlarge the operations.
While nothing authentic can be learned
at this time, it is to be supposed that the
head office of the new corporation will be
located in Gainesville, judging from the in-
formation embodied in the deed of trust.
