PAPER READ BY CAPT. PURSE ON SU-
GAR PRODUCTION IN THE SOUTH.
One of the interesting features of the
convention of the Southern States Asso-
ciation of Commissioners of Agriculture
Tuesday afternoon nwas a paper by Capt.
D. G. Purse, of Savannah, president of the
Interstate Sugar Cane (rowers' Associa-
tion, on Sugar Production in the Southern
States and the Possible Return of Florida
to Leadership in the Production of That
Capt. Purse is well known in Florida
and has always taken a deep interest in
the welfare of the State. Ilis views on
the production of sugar in this State are of
particular interest as lie is considered an
authority on the subject. His paper, in
full, was as follows:
Capt. Purse's Paper.
Mr. Pre-ident, Mlnile:-s of convention .
Ladies and Gentlemen.-louisiana for a
century has been the chief. andi much of
that time. tle only never failing contin-

In the first quarter of the last century,
(eorg-a gave great promise of lining up
-.i h Louisiana in contributing the South's
for her, as a sugar producing State.
As early as 1767, twenty-seven years
before Etteine DeBore's successful experi-
ments in producing cane sugar in Louis-
iana, Sir Alexander Duncan and Dr. Sam-
uel Turnbull organized a company and
brought a colony of immigrants, gathered
from the western islands of the Mediter-
ranean. planted them upon the Halifax
river, founded New Smyrna, the sole ob-
ject of this venture being to cultivate su-
gar can for the production of sugar, and
tile cultivation of indigo as a companion
crop. both products for European con-
sumption. Thus Florida is entitled to the
honor of having been the first common-
wealth, within the present federal union,
into whose soil the sugar cane was trans-
planted from its native habitat.
The ever increasing consumptive demand
shown by the hundreds of millions paid
out for the products of foreign countries,
in some single years exceeding $100,000,-
000, so inadequate has been domestic pro-
duction for meeting this demand, though
supplemented by the sugar from the beet,

sugar consuming country in the world, and
second only to Great Britain in her per

to encourage and increase production; the
inducements have imparted a keen stimu-
lation to beet production where science has

tile .'inm impulse has not been given to
the 1 '1vtiation of sugar cane on a commer-
cial I:-is. and its area has continued re-
stricted within the borders of Louisiana
as a -rse for sugar, save in a limited de-
velo ,m- ent in Texas, and with these condi-
tions c fronting us we approach today,
the question of the South's possible future
in contributing to the emancipation of
the I'nitedl States from foreign countries
in providing for her con-umptive demand
Scil and Climate Adapted.
The soil and climate of tile southeastern
part of Sruth (arolina and southern (eor-
gia. Alal',o'a and Mi isissiippi and the
w'lole State of Fori:la. are admirably
adapted to ihe production of sugar cane

years ago. Dr. W. C. Stubbs, a distinguish-
ed -E'entist and sugar expert of New Or-
juota. and in the last decade. Texas has leans. reporting upon several hundred

agriculturists that there is a bright future than in the cane produced in the rich al-
luvial bottoms of Louisiana, and that
from a previous visit to these sections,
lie could add that the cultivation was ae-
complll' ed at one-half the cost required
in Louisiana, with an equal tonnage to the
acre under equally intelligent cultivation;
and this testimony stands today as when
uttered without one change.
The Industry in Florida.
The sugar industry in Florida spread
over tile entire State from the seed plant-
ed at New Smyrna by Duncan and Turn-
bull. and. if we may judge from the ruins
of sugar houses over southern and western
Florida. it was at its zenith from 1861 to
18t3. and after the capture of New Or-
leans by Gen. Butler, was the Confed-
eracy's chief source of domestic supply un-
til federal gunboats destroyed the exten-
sive G:amble and Braiden plantations and
sugar plants on the Manatee river. At
:le time, it is said, Mr. Gamble had thir-
teen hundred acres and Dr. Braiden four
hundred acres in sugarcane for sugar mak-
The Gamble and Braiden sugar plants
were only two of many, but were appar-
ently the most pretentious and conspic-
uous. The late David L. Yules, a dis-
tinguished citizen of Florida, and an ex-
United States senator, also had large in-
vestments in the sugar industry on the
Suwannee river, and possibly at other
In the present year analyses have been
made of Manatee cane, planted in 1906,
as it continued to grow in the open field
up to last May; samples being cut and
forwarded to Washington in the months of
December, 1905, and January, February,
March and April of this year. The analy-
ses of these samples sustain those made in
1902. and show that a uniform richness is
preserved; from December to May, afford-
ing a grinding season equal to Cubs; a
most indispensable consideration in sugar-
making to obtain the best results.
'The Manatee river section seems to be
Ibut the type of a large area in Florida,
adapted to the profitable cultivation of
cr;ie for sugar.
Development of ladaltry.
The development of a sugar industry in
Southern Florida. cannot but possess a
keen interest for every member of this
convention. 1l-cause it would be reflected
upon tlhe cane cultivation in each of the
States here repr.- ente-l. and though it may
not make all of them sugar producing

drug store, thus insuring that the patients
get only the best medicines and treatment.
Thirty-six patients have been treated at
the Florida Keeley Institute during the
past year. Just at present there are no
patients here for treatment, though the
applications for entrance have been filed
by three. These were held up until the
institution had been moved to its new
quarters, but they will now be admitted
Within the next few weeks Dr. Taylor
w:ll.send out circulars telling of the work
of the institute, showing what has been
accomplished here and elsewhere during

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 5
Peonage Trial at Pensacola Makes Slow Pro'
gress but End is Near,
Pensacola, Nov. 16.-The United States
court room was crowded during today to
hear the second day's proceedings in the
famous peonage cases originating at the
Jackson Lumber Company, at Lockhart,
The case on trial is that of Manager W.
8. Harlan, et al., charged with conspiracy
to commit peonage, and throughout the
proceeding counsel for defense made ob-
jection to admitting testimony, especially
to that portion occurring at Lockhart,
in Alabama, but these objections were in-
S The first witness of any importance to
testify was J. C. Satterwhite, a telegraph
operator, employed by the company at
Lockhart. He told of taking telegrams
over the wire during July from John At-
well, a deputy sheriff of Walton county,
Fla., addressed to W. 8. Harlan, and ask-
ing if the latter desired two foreigners
who were near Laurel Hill. H sent reply
signed by Harlan, in which the latter told
Atwell to hold the men and they would be
Johin Atwell, the deputy, was then
placed on the stand and identified copy of
message received by him, stating that he
followed the two foreigners and overtook
them about seven miles from Laurel Hill.
He was talking to the two men on the
road when two men, one of whom he said
was Harlan, drove up in a buggy. Two
dogs were also in the buggy, and Callagher
got out and came to where thu were
standing. He remarked something about
not the right men, and proceeded to kick
one of the foreigners twice. The two for-
eigners then went with Gallagher to the
buggy and drove oc together back to the
camp. Witness admitted he told the for-
eigners that it would look better if they
owed the company anything to go back
and work it out. He also stated that Gal-
lagher had said something about a watch
being stolen, but no one had a warrant or
process to arrest the men. Said he got
five dollars for the service. He had been
requested before to stop men, but had
never done it.
Manuel Jordmans, a Bulgarian, told by
far the most harrowing tale. He had been
employed in New York with the under-
standing he was to work in a brickyard.
When he arrived at Lockhart he was
placed at work in building a railroad track.
He worked for two days at this, being
compelled to sleep on the ground at nights,
and procure his food from a car. He at-
tempted to run away, but ws caught and
brought back and Woods Foreman Gal-
Slagher took him in hand. He was taken
into the office, where Gallagher beat him
over the head and body and kicked him
about the limbs, all the while holding a
revolver pointed at his head. He could
not work, although told to do so, as the
beating was too severe. He exhibited to
the court and jury an ugly scar upon his
leg, which he claimed was the result of
.he kicks administered by Gallagher.
Charles Hads, an Austrian, was then
sworn and told of seeing the beating of
the Bulgarian. He, too, had been whipped
and kicked, he said, upon several occas-
ions, by the boaes, and had seen several
other men b atpe by the bosses. One man
particularly, he said, was beaten nearly
every day. He was known in the camp
as "square head."
John Foster, an employee, told of one
day seeing Gallagher beating the Bulgarian
as he was coming from dinner. Galla-
gher was walking behind the Bulgarian,
kicking and beating him, and he heard
him say at the time: "I will learn you
how to run away."
Other testimony was introduced during
the day which was almost as bad. Most
of the witnesses during the day were for-
eigners. who had formerly been employed
in the camps, and who had come down from
New York early in June, all being employ-
ed there by an employment bureau, and
promised different work from that which
they were given.
Pensacola. Nov. 17.-The trial of the
testimony of John Foster, his testimony
not being finished the day previous. He
added nothing to the testimony already
Other witnesses were John Davis, Ar-
thur Buckley and John Smith, all former
employes of the Jackson Lumber Company,
who testified to the treatment accorded
the men of the camp, to whippings and
other cases of abuse.
Justice of the Peace James .Tohnson,
who told of methods employed by the com-
pany to make the men sign contract to
work out alleged indebtedness, C. L, Mo-
nacky. whose testimony was along the
same lines as that of Justice Johnson, and
C. Frank Dunky. a former employee of the
company, who told of the whipping of
Minaly. to which he was a witness.
Judge Joseph Johnson, of Florala. near
Lockhart. proved an interesting witness,
relating that the men had been arrested
and brought before him charged with ob-
taining money by false pretenses or violat-
ing their contracts by not paying back
passage money. One man, Barsol. was ar-
rested upon the latter charge. He issued
the warrant, but the charge was with-
drawn by the boss when the man signed a
contract agreeing to work.
Another. C. Crum, was arrested upon
the same charge. and prosecution stopped'
when he signed a contract.
William Keller, of New York, one of tl,
men engaged at a labor agency in that
city. was then called. He left New York
in June in company with a number of
others for Lockhart, Ala. Witness con-
tracted to work for the Jackson Lumber
Company at $1.05 per day in a mill. The
party was met at Ravannah by Gallagher
and put on a train for Loekhart. At Fort
Valley. Ga.. he and several others attempt-
ed to escape. and got as far as the next
station below, nine miles away, where the
party was captured by a deputy sheriff and
brought back. The officers were armed
with Winchester rifles. The sheriff was at
Fort Valley when they were brought back
and gave the men the option of going to
Lockhart or on the chain gang. The sheriff
then turned the men over to Gallagher.
At the car Gallagher asked the sheriff if
"These are the five," and later said "Take
them to jail."
The sheriff then whispered to Gallagher,
and the latter told the men to get in the
car. Upon reaching Lockhart witness was
put to work at a lumber camp. Witness

Pensacola, Nov. 19.-The most damaging
evidence yet to be adduced against the
defendant in the now famous peonage
cases yas brought out today, when the
government, still introducing witnesses,

two ladies. One man had been captured
upon the highways of Florida, held at the
paint of a revolver and beaten with a
horsewhip, while the two ladies had wit-
nessed the horsewhipping.

Mrs. Paul, a lady residing by the road
near Laurel Hill, Fla., told the court of
seeing the men in a buggy overtake a
foreigner near her home last July. The
men were in a buggy, and two of them
got out, and while one pointed a revolver
at the foreigner the other beat hiln with
a whip. And later they went oc down
the road with one of the men holding the
foreigner. She asked one of the men when
they were whipping the foreigner what
they were doing it for, and he replied that
he had stolen something.
Mrs. Elizabeth Gibson, a lady residing
near Mrs. Paul, had also seen the beating
of the foreigner on the highway.
Dr. Craig, a physician of Larel Hill,
had met Gallagher and others on the day
they had whipped the foreigner, and Dr.
Craig had said: "Hello, Bob, who are you
looking for?" and Gallagher had replied:
"This thing," pointing to the foreigner.
Something of the bloodhounds kept by the
company was told by Alex Norman, a for-
mer employee, who said he knew Harlan.
Witness said that the bloodhounds were
kept in an enclosure in Harlan's yard, and
around the first enclosure was a second,
which was made of very high boards, and
inside of which were three small dogs,
which were kept there at al times. $t
was the understanding that the blood-
hounds were kept to trail men.

PLAN AGRKED 0O BY THE BANKERS.
Washington, Nov. 15.-The plan of cur-
reney reform agreed upon by the commit-
tee of the American Bankers' Association
and the New York Chamber of Commerce,
upon which they have been at work for
four days, was made public today. The
conclusions reached were unanimous, and
will be submitted in the form of a report
to the members consisting of the American
A committee was appoitned consisting
of Mr. Hepburn, James Forgan of Cbica-
go, and John L. Hamilton of Hoopstown,
l1., to whom was instructed the drafting
of a bill for presentation to Congress which
will embody the ideas expressed in the
statement made public by the committee
of bankers today.
The plan agreed upon by the two com-
mittees contemplates the issue under gov-
S ernment supervision of credit bank notes
by national banks equal to 40 per cent of
their bond-secured circulation, subject to
a tax of 21, per cent per annum; an au-
tomatic increase of credit notes under cer-
tain conditions, a further issue of credit
notes equal to 12% per cent of a bank's
capital at a tax of 5 per cent per annum;
the establishment of a guarantee fund fro
the redemption of credit notes of failed
banks; provision for active daily redemp-
tion of credit notes; repealing existing
law. limiting the retirement of bond-se-
cured notes to $3,000,000 per month and
the deposit of all public moneys above
reasonable working balances in national
banks without collateral security on which
the banks are to pay 2 per cent.
es of Change Imperative.
The statement is made in the report
agreed upon that there is unanimity of
opinion that changes in the existing bank
note system are imperatively required and
that the present volume of bank notes is
wholly unresponsive to the demands of
The report sets out a series of princi-
ples which were agreed upon by the bank-
ers and which they believe underly a "cor-
rect solution" of the currency problem, so
far as it relates to the issue of a bank note
currency. The report says:
"We therefore unanimously recommend
the enactment into law of the following,
having the firm conviction that thereby
will be provided a bank note currency,
safe beyond peradventure, and automati-
cally varying in volume as needs of com-
May la- Credit otes.
First. Credit bank notes: Any national
bank having been actively doing business
for one year and having a surplus fund
equal to 20 per cent of its capital, shall
have authority to issue credit notes as
follows, subject to the rules and regula-
tions to be determined by the controller of
,(a). An amount equal to 40 per cent
of its bond-secured circulation, subject to
a tax at the rate of 2% per cent per
apnum upon the average amount out-
standing. Provided that if at any time in
the future the present proportion of the
total outstanding unmatured United
States bonds to the total capitalization of
all going national banks shall diminish,
then the authorized issue of credit notes
shall be increased to a correspondingly
greater percentage of its bond-secured
(b). A further amount equal to 12%
per cent of its capital subject to a tax at
lbe rate of 5 per cent per annum upon the
average amount of outstanding in excess
of the amount first mentioned.
The total of credit notes and bond-se-
cured notes shall not exceed the capital.
The Carrying of Reserves.
Second. Reserve: The same reserves
shall be carried against credit notes as
are now required by law !to be carried
Third. Guaranty fund: The taxes pro-
vided upon credit notes shall be paid in
gold to the treasurer of the United States
and shall constitute a guaranty fund for.
the redemption of notes of failed banks
and for the payment of the expenses of
printing and the cost of redemption. In
order that the guaranty fund may be
ample fro mthe beginning, any bank mak-
ing application to take out credit ntes for
issue shall deposit with the treasurer of
the United States in gold an amount equal
to 5 per cent thereof. The unused portion
of this initial payment shall be an asset
of the contributing banks respectively, and
shall be refunded from time to time when
this may be done without reducing the
guaranty fund below an amount equal to
5 per cent of the credit notes taken out.
Sixth. All public money above a reason-
able working balance, from whatever
source derived, shall be currently deposited
from day to day in national banks with-
out requiring collateral security or spec-
ial guaranty thereof, but in no case shall
the balance carried with any bank exceed
50 per cent of the capital thereof. All
banks receiving such public moneys on
deposit shall pay into the United States
Treasury interest thereon at the rate of
2 per cent per annum."
Fire at Chumuckla.
News reached here this morning from
Chumuckla, about thirty miles from Pen-
sacola, of the destruction there by fire
yesterday of two fine turpentine stills, the
property of the Panona Naval Stores Com-
pany, a branch of the Escambia Land and
Manufacturing Company, of this city, to-
gether with about 100 barrels of crude
gum. One convict escaped from the stock-
ade during the confusion incident to the
fire. One of the employes fired up both of
the stills at the same time, and while lie
was attending to one the other became
too hot and the cap exploded. Both were
under the same shed and were burned, en-
tailing a los of about $7,000.

manufacturing plant of the South, where
Americans and foreigners are treated alike,
can come and depart as they choose and
where the food and sleeping accommoda-
tions are above the average found where
so many men are employed. Such was
the testimony adduced in the case of W.
S. Harlan, et al., charged with conspiracy
to commit peonage.
It was the fifth day of taking testimony
in this celebrated case, and early in the
forenoon, the government rested its case.
District Attorney Sheppard reserving the
right to introduce secondary evidence to
prove a certain contract between the
Jackson Lumber Company and one of their
employes, who, it is alleged, was forced to
sign a contract to work out a debt.
The defense then introduced its first wit-
ness, Frank Hall, a man who had been in
the employ of the company for some
length of time, and who had always been
treated properly by the bosses and man-
agement and had no complaint whatever
to make. He had slept in the cars pro-
vided for some of the men, where the bed-
ding was good and cleaner than found at
any other mill, while the pay was satis-
Pat Murphy, a former employee of the
company, and one of the crowd to come
down from New York was a witness, and
when he decided to quit no one had at-
tempted to stop him or interfere with him
in the least. All during the period that
he was employed by the company he had
been perfect yfree to go as he pleased,
and to return to the camps whenever he
chose. He had never seen any foreigner or
anyone else, for that matter, beaten,
abused or mistreated, and no one had ever
gone about armed with revolvers, as claim-
ed, and only one time during his stay with
the company did he see a weapon, and that
was carried by a man named "Big Harry."
At one time, he stated, an extra watch-
man was placed on duty to watch a car
containing some laborers, but this was done
because there was some stealing going on
in the camp. The food was good and the
sleeping accommodations satisfactory.
John Collins Testiiea.
John Collins, who for two years had been
in the employ of the company, stated that
he had never seen any one beaten at the
camp, and that no distinction was made
bLeween the foreigners and Americans.
Their food was the same, the work the
same, and their sleeping accommodations
When questioned regarding the state-
ment of one Mihaly that the latter had
been brought back to the camp and beaten,
witness said that he was not at the camp
on that date, and consequently knew noth-
ing of it, but he had heard some workmen
talking of it afterwards.
John Holichan, a Hungarian, who came
south with the foreigners from New York,
said that he was satisfied with his treat-
ment. He reached Lockhart in July with
the others, and was placed at work build-
ing a railroad track; slept in cars with
others, and got his food at the dining
car. The sleeping accommodations were
clean and satisfactory, and the food plen-
When questioned regarding the work-
man, Hass, being beaten, he knew nothing
of it, but said Hass did not: want to work
and as soon as he got a square meal want-
ed to go to sleep.
William Talbot's Tale.
William Talbot was from New York, bat
came down with a lot of workmen. He
had worked continuously at the camps of
the Jackson Lumber Company and thought
conditions, food, bedding, etc., were all
first-class. He knew a night watchman
was on duty all the time, but thought he
was there to attend to early morning du-
ties, such as feeding horses, firing engines,
etc., but never went armed. Absolute rfee-
dom was enjoyed by all, no restrictions at
all being placed on anyone. Witness said
lie knew McGinnis, a man who figured in
the prosecution, and said he was a ruffian,
being troublesome all the way from New
York. He would steal, also, witness de-
"McGinnis is the man alleged to have
been beaten by Gallagher. He was one
of the four who got away from the county
jail after being locked up there for steal-
Witness attributed any dissatisfaction
to fault of the crowd of men who would
get drunk, lounge around the car and re-
fuse to work.
Lewis Mayne, who was one of the watch-
men around the cars, and who, it was
sworn to by the prosecution, was an
"armed guard," was next called. Mayne
said he was ordered only to look after the
men in the cars, and that was to watch
for McGinnis, who was accused of having
stolen clothing, and who, for a long time
had been suspected of pilfering. Witness
gave accommodations the same good name
as had preceding witnesses, and said that
perfect satisfaction prevailed.
Twelve other witnesses were heard along
the same lines. They were either in the
employ of the company, or had formerly
been engaged in some capacity. So evi-
dence was introduced by defense to contro-
vert any of the specific allegations of the
government, the defense seemingly relying
solely upon character witnesses.
Among the strongest witnesses for the
defense to testify were Emil Lesser, presi-
dent of the German Immigration Society
of Alabama; Mayor W. C. McLaughlin, of
Florala and Rev. W. F. Martin, also of
that place. They had all visited the camps,
conversed with the men and found them
satisfied, with no evidences of any mis-
treatment or peonage. The visits to the
camp had been made immediately after
the papers had published articles regarding
the case of foreigners coming to Pensacola
and telling of treatment at the camp.
Mr. Lesser was a very strong witness.
His home is in Birmingham, where he also
publishes a German paper, and as soon as
he heard of the alleged peonage cases he
left there for Lockhart, and arriving there
found it to be one of the best, if not the
best, conducted lumber camps in the South.
He made a rigid investigation into the
charges of beating of the men, and said
that he brought out the fact that there
had been stealing in the camp by two men,
who had been brought back, and each given
a whipping, but this was done by their
fellow laborers as a punishment for the
thefts. He wa" present, he said, when the
men were served with dinner, and the food
was not onl plentiful, but wholesome.
He had spoken while at Lockhart to about
one hundred men, thirty-three of whom
speke the German language, and that no
one complained to him of being dissatisfied
or of any bad treatment, but on the con-
trary all seemed to be satisfied. He had
been taken through the camps by Dr.
Trammell, but in talking to the men the
doctor was not present. He hadl, upon the
completion of this investigation, placed
the results before the German ambassador
at Washington, the German consul at New
Orleans. the Governor of Alabama and

the consul at Pensacola.
Upon the completion of the testimony of
Mr. Lesser, a German named Charles Haas
was placed upon the stand by the prosecu-
tion in rebuttal. He remembered having
talked with Mr. Lesser, and of telling him
he was satisfied, but the reason he did so
was because Mr. Lesser was with one of
the bosses. Mayor W. C. McLaughlin, of
Florala, a short distance from Lockhart,
had made a personal investigation of con-
ditions obtaining at the Jackson Lumber
Company camps, and found that the camps
were above the average logging camps,
and he was in a position to judge, for he
had been in the timber business for about
forty years. He lived about eight miles
from Lockhart and the first he ever heard
of any of the men being mistreated was
when he read it in the papers.
Rev. W. F. Martin, pastor of one of the
churches at Florala, also testified along
the same lines as Mr. McLaughlin. He
said he had visited the camps upon several
occasions, especially after he had heard of
men being mistreated, and had made par-
ticular inquiries of the men regarding the
same, but had never found but one dissat-
isfied man, and that was one with whom
Gallagher had a dispute, and it amounted
practically to nothing. He had gone
through the camps upon request of Dr.
Other witnesses testified along the same
lines, and all gave the camps a good name,
and the bosses the reputation of having
treated the men fairly in every respect.
Pensacola, Nov. 22.-The last witness in
the famous peonage cases testified this
afternoon and the charge of conspiracy to
commit peonage against W. S. Harlan et
al., is now being presented to the jury by
counsel for the government. While con-
siderable evidence, more than was antici-
pated, was heard during today, it was all
in rebuttal, and the government presented
some of its strongest witnesses, while the
defense brought in employes of the com-
pany in rebuttal of this testimoony. When
these witnesses concluded the government
began the presentation of its case, R. Pope
Reese making the opening argument and
consuming several hours, during which he
stated that the government had clearly
proven that armed bodies of men with
bloodhounds had crossed the borders of
the State, and capturing foreigners, com-
pelled them to return to the plant of the
Jackson Lumber Company in a state of
peonage, and cited the case. of Mihaley,
who, he claimed, had been captured in
1lorida, beaten and compelled to return
to the camps of the company.
Argument to Begin.
Tomorrow W. A. Blount, Jr., of the de-
fense, will make the opening argument, to
be followed by J. G. Russell, assistant
United States attorney general. There
has been no limit placed upon the length
* of these arguments, the court announcing
that owing to the importance of the case,
the counsel could agree among themselves
as to how many should speak for each side,
which has been agreed upon as three.

Norfolk, Nov. 21.-The prosecutions now
being conducted by the government under
the new federal anti-shanghaiing laws to
bring about a stop to peonage aboard oys-
ter dredges in lower Chesapeake bay have
resulted in many of the extensive bay
dredges being compelled to quit business.

Chesapeake, where he spent several days
summoning witnesses for the trial in the
United States court here tomorrow of

prints in the dealings in rosin for the past
The lower grades of rosin have suffered
during the week. Operators have seen
how the market can be manipulated to
the advantage of the great exporters. Just
another argument why operators ought to
stick together for mutual protection.
The operators of the Lake City district
have organized along the proper lines.
They have perfected an organization and
have good men to lead them. As The
Record said in a previous issue, there is
much to be accomplished by this organizt-
tion of local association-. They can handle
matters in their immediate section and by
affiliation with the T. O. A. secure great
advantages for the entire naval stores belt.
THE LESSON OF PEONAGE.
As the Record goes to press this week,
the news is flashed to us over the wires
that a verdict of guilty of conspiracy
to commit peonage had been rendered by
the jury in the United States court at
Pensacola, which had tried W. S. Harlan,
C. C. Hilton and S. E. Huggins, of the
Jackson Lumber Company of Lockhart,
As to the verdict itself, The Recol has
no commentto make. But there is a les-
son it conveys which ought to fall with
great weight and be seriously considered
by those who are engaged in any of the
industries in the South where a consider-
able number of laborers are employed.
The camp of the Jackson Lumber Company
at Lockhart has always been considered a
model one. It has been declared to be such
by special correspondents who have in-
vestigated the matter and by no less an
authority than the German vice-consul at
Birmingham, Ala. The gentlemen who have
been found guilty of the charge of conspir-
acy to commit peonage are victims of a
reckless lot of immigration agents in the
North. It has been repeatedly shown by
the occurrences of the past few months
that those who trust their chances and
their money to that class of labor re-
cruiters are taking a long shot at an
uncertain target. There has not been a
case where those who have risked their
money with these northern agencies have
secured that which they were after. Far
from it, they have been sent the riff-raff,
and after paying their fare and so much
per head, have found that after the men
have arrived here, they were worthless,
shiftless, dishonest and entirely unsatis-
In the first place it is taking a long
chancee to bring foreigners to the South
until they have been inspected, selected
and the bad ones weeded out from among
the number. There are good laborers ar-
riving at Hoffman's island from Europe
almost daily. But as a rule they are sent
to the West. The reason for this is easily
to be accounted for. The West has agents
in Europe, who are either paid by their
States or by the great transportation
companies, who have done so much toward
the building up of that part of the United
States. These agents move among the
people of Europe, know the localities where
the best class of immigrants are to be se-
cured, and know to what work they are
best fitted. These agents pick the best
class, send them over here and push them
right through to their destination in the
West before they can get into the hands
of sharks, who class themselves as immi-
gration or employment agents.
Until the Southern States take some
action of this kind, the naval stores ope-
rators and the sawmill men had better let
the foreigners alone, unless some of them
pool their issues and send a man to Europe
to select them. In this matter the South
has been exceedingly slow. It has done
practically nothing while the West has
reaped the advantages of a desirable class
of settlers, men and women who have en-
tered into the spirit of progress of that
great section and who have made it what
it is. The South can get just as good im-
migrants as the West, but it will never do
so while our officials are backward in mak-
ing the necessary appropriations, or spend-
ing the money of the people in such fake
schemes as the attempt to drain the ever-
There have been thousands of dollars
lost by naval stores men ana sawmill men
in bringing foreigners to this section. Few
of them have remained long enough to pay
half their railroad fare, and practically
none of them have proved satisfactory. Is
it not time that this effort to bring for-
eigners to this section without proper ad-
vance knowledge was discontinued?
FLORIDA AND GEORGIA GROWERS OF
SEA ISLAND COTTON MEET
AT LAKE CITY.
Lake City, Nov. 23.-The Sea Island Cot-
ton Association, composed of sixteen coun-
ties in Georgia and thirteen in Florida,
that grow the long staple, met in this city
today, and was called to order at 10:30
a. m. by President Harvie Jordan.
Prayer was offered by Rev. Walter T.
Cavell, of St. James Episcopal church of
An address of welcome was delivered by
Judge W. M. Ivs, of this city, who took
occasion to pay a very high compliment
to the organization, and to congratulate
it on the splendid things it had accomplish-
ed and its outlook for the future. He laid
special stress on the power of such organi-
zations, and admonished the members to
stand pat and they would win.
Col. W. W. Webb, of Hahira, Ga., re-
sponded in one of his typical and semi-
humorous speeches, and said he was ready
for any good things that the people of this
land could set before him; that previous
visits had given him somewhat of an idea
of what this fair Florida section was ca-
pable of. He congratulated the body on
its good attendance and was convinced it
would do good work and its proceedings be
President Harvie Jordan then delivered
an address full of cound encouragement
and wisdom. He told of the fight being
made against the organization, and that
thus far it had been victorious, although
attacked by foes within its ranks. He
predicted great things for the farmer, if
he would only stand together with his
brother in one solid body.
After Mr. Jordan's speech a recess was
taken until 2 p. mi., to allow the commit-
tee on price of cotton to formulate their
At the afternoon session the committee
on minimum price submitted the following
report, which was adopted:

The following resolution was adopted:
Resolved, By the Sea Island Cotton As-

Association, an able address was made
against it by Col. W. W. Webb, of Georgia.
No decisive action was taken in the mat-
ier, but a committee of five was appointed
to consider relations of Sea Island AAsocia-

The matter of a tariff on Egyptian cot-

SEABOARD TRAIN TO REMAIN ON.
Pensacola, Nov. 20.-Announcement was
made this morning by the local Louisville
and Nashville railroad that the accommo-
dation leaving here at 5 p. m., and return-
ing the following morning at 10, making
direct connection with the Jacksonville
train, will not be discontinued as an-
nounced. The service was inaugurated
upon the request of the chamber of com-
merce, and when the members of that body
learned that orders had gone forth from
the head officers of the company to dis-
continue the service on November 25, there
was an immediate protest, and it was cited
that the business of the division so far as
the passenger traffic is concerned, has al-
most doubled during the past year, and
that the train is a great source of con-
venience to merchants in small towns who
come here in the forenoon and can return
in the afternoon. Added to the protest of
the chamber of commerce was that of the
United Commercial Travelers, who entered
a most vigorous protest over the discontin-
uance of the service, and the protests had
the desired effect.

DOOM OF ATLANTIC SHAD.
Mr. John W. Titeomb of the United
States bureau of fisheries, in a recent in-
terview with a representative of the New
York Herald, said: "Shad fisheries of the
Atlantic coast are doomed unless the
States take immediate steps to protect
them from the rapacity of the fishermen."
The great demand for shad roe prevents
natural spawning and perpetuation of the
species. The bureau is now closing the
hatching and distribution of shad for this
year, and reports from various stations
give startling evidence that the supply of
shad on the Atlantic seaboard is rapidly
diminishing. Facilities of the bureau allow
the hatching and setting free in the
streams of the country of 300,000,000 shad
fry annually, but this year only about 45,-
K 000,000 have been handled. The output
was 65,493 in 1904, and last year it was be-
Mr. Titcomb predicts that in ten years
without the intervention of State protec-
tive laws, shad will become so scarce in the
Atlantic rivers that they will be purchas-
able only by the stewards of big hotels
and those who supply the tables of the
Habits of the shad lend themselves ad-
mirably to the extermination of the fish.
They approach the shores in immense
schools, actually crowding one another in
their efforts to reach the head of the fresh
water streams, where the spown is depos-
ited. The fishermen have learned how to
intercept the run by nets in the bays and
in the boad mouths of the rivers, and the
marketable shad are now nearly all caught
in this way.
Few roe shade escape the nets. The riv-
ear are thus much depleted, the natural
spawning of the fish interfered with and
the supply of eggs available for the hateh-
ing bureau cut off.
In pointing out a remedy, Mr. Titcomb
says it is incumbent on the States to en-
act restricting laws against the taking of
fish in the brackish waters of the bays and
at the mouths of the rivers. He believes
the fish should be allowed to ascend the
rivers unmolested, at least during one of
the annual runs, possibly that in May, and
during a considerable part of the shad sea-
son the catch should be limited to fresh
Streams on the Pacific coast have been
stocked and the shad transplanted from its
native waters in the Atlantic ocean to the
Pacific with good results. Shad are in-
creasing in California and other western
rivers under the restrictive laws there en-

Need of Uniform Laws.
Mr. McCarthy, who is president of the

to the sale of adulterated foods in every

This was the last paper presented yes-

ALLEGED GRAIN REBATING.
James J. Hill Proves a Willing Witness
Minneapolis, Nov. 21.-James J. Hill,
.president of the Great Northern, Northern
Pacific and Burlington roads, was the first
witness today when Commissioners Lane
and Prouty of the Interstate Commerce
Commission began their inquiry into the
relations which exist between the railroad
companies and the grain companies in the
northwest. The hearing is held pursuant
to the LaFollette resolution.
Mr. Hill proved to be a willing witness.
His answers were given to all questions
without hesitation. On the subject of
grain elevators, Mr. Hill said:
"It is our rule to permit anyone to erect
elevators at stations of our road on the
right of way. We now make our contracts
not transferable as we have found in-
stances where such applications were not
made in good faith and afterwards sold
at a good figure. When we have found
objectionable elevator combines we have
sometimes built elevators of our own and
placed some man in charge. In such in-
stances the combines have tried to freeze
our man out, but, that, gentlemen," said
Mr. Hill, with a smile, "was before the
passage of the interstate commerce law."
Augusta, Nov. 21.-In the testimony
given in the application before the railroad
commission to compel the Southern rail-
way to haul accumulated cotton from
Fayetteville, Ga., it yas developed today
. that there were over 31,000 bales there
waiting shipment of which 1,500 bales were
in mud and water six inches deep. Owing
to conditions in Fayetteville the insurance
companies are refusing to insure cotton.
MR. J. H. PATTEN SUGGESTS RE-
STRICTIONS TENDING TO BETTER
QUALITY OF IMMIGRANTS.
Owing to the high interest that is being
taken just at this time throughout the en-
tire South in the immigration question,
few, if any, of the subjects taken up at
the annual convention of the Southern
Mr. Patten is the secretary of the Immi-
gration Restriction League. He has been
for years engaged in the study of the im-
migration problem, and his paper, as pre-
sented Monday, showed careful prepara-
tion, thorough understanding of all the
phsaes of the problem, and brought out
clearly the work that is being done by the
society he represents to raise the standard
of quality of the immigrants to this coun-
At the very outset of his address, Mr.
Patten pointed out that the league, of
which lie was an officer, was not trying to
restrict the tide of immigrants, so far as
numbers were concerned, but was working
to so restrict it that the worthless, shift-
less, undesirable class could not enter.
Quality was the object of the league, and
w-hile every inducement will be extended
to the higher class of immigrants, the off-
s-ourings of Europe is what the league
Ieeks to prevent from getting into this
The Dillingham Bill.
After briefly outlining the plan of work
that the league is following, Mr. Patten
called attention to "the Dillingham bill,"
formally known as Senate bill 4403, Re-
port No. 2186, a bill to amend the immigra-
tion act of March 3. 1903, and which passed
the Senate May 23, 1906.
He pointed out that the first section in-
creased the duty on alien passengers from
$2 to $5, and that added to the classes ex-
cluded were imbeciles, feeble-minded per-
sons, epileptics and "perosns not compre-
hended within any of the foregoing exclud-
ed classes, who are found to be and are
certified by the examining surgeon as be-
ing mentally or physically defectinve, such
mental or physical defect being of a na-
ture which may affect the ability of such
alien to earn a living."
In this connection, Mr. Patten pointed
out that this is what is usually called the
'pI or physique" clause, and argued force-
fully in favor of its adoption.
No Minor Immigrants.
The speaker next took up the question
of the immigration of minors, and argued
against this. This the Dillingham bill
would prohibit, as children under seventeen
years of age, unaccompanied by their pa-
rents, or unless coming to join parents or
relatives able and willing to support them,
are barred entrance.
The importation of minors, Mr. Patten
said, was one of the causes that lead to
the working of boys under the padrone
system, and the importation of girls for
immoral purposes, a practice generally re-
ferred to in the public prints as "the white

ing along this particular line.
"Assisted to Come."
Then came the question of excluding
those "assisted to come." And here, the
speaker held, was a great question.
He pointed out that statistics showed
that just about one-half of all immigrants
do not pay their passage, or, in other
words, "are assisted to come." The Re-
striction League seeks to limit the privi-
lege of "assisting" to such relatives as are

would do much to diminish the number of

For Zdactimal Requirement.
Mr. Patten also dwelt at some length
on the fact that the Dillingham bill ex-
cluded all over sixteen physically capable
of reading who cannot read in the English
language or some other language. An ex-
ception is made in the case of children
coming to join their parents or in parents
or grandparents, more than fifty years of
age, coming to join their children, who have
"The statistics show," said Mr. Patten,
"that in general there is a ose correspond-
ence between ignorance of language and
ignorance of trade, poverty, tendency to
settle in the slums of large cities, failure
to settle permanently or to become natu-
ralized, and general difficulty of assimila-
"I do not say that the ability to read
makes a man a good immigrant, but the
probabilities are that he is better than
the one who cannot read, that he has more
ambition, that he will work himself up,
and the chances for assimilation are inn-
itely better for him. I believe strongly in
this educational test, and believe that it
will go a great ways towards shutting out
the low, worthless, shiftless, trouble-mak-
ing class of immigrants "
Mr. Patten pointed out the desirability
of establishing immigration bureaus in
Europe, and having competent men, men
with the best interests of their particular
sections at heart, selecting the immigrnuts..
The high class of immigrants seemed by
Commissioner Watson, of South Carolina,
he cited as an example of what can be
accomplished by work alJng these lines.
He argued strongly against the Indis-
criminate bringing of immigrants here, and
against entrusting a work of such impor-
tance to the agents of steamship Hnes,
whose first object is always to fill the
steerage, regardless of quality. No coun-
try, he pointed out, wanted to lose the beat
class of its people, and unless broad-mind-
ed, hardworking men took up this work,
the foreign countries would keep their best
and give us their off-scourings.
"In the end, these restrictions will not
affect numbers," said Mr. Patten. "Deny
the steamship companies the right to bring
illiterates, and they will bring literates.
Deny them the right to bring men without
trades, and they will bring men with them.
Refuse to receive the worthless ones, and
they will bring the better ones. They will
do it, because they must do it."
He closed with a beautiful tribute to the
South. and to the home-life of the South,
and with a plea for sustaining it and hold-
ing it up as an example to newcomers and
to the entire country.
A GREAT FURNITURE STORB.
The E. E. Cleaveland Furiture Company
Has Grown and Prospered.
Among the many reputable enterprises
represented in Jacksonville that have stood
the test of time, none is more deserving of
honorable mention than the E. E. Cleave-
land Furniture Co.
Founded in 1880 by its present owners
upon the broad principles of fair dealings,
honest values and courteous treatment to
all, its growth and progress has been so
marked that it occupies today the enviable
position of Florida's leading and most
prominent furniture store.
Its present magnificent quarters excite
the admiration and comment of travelers
even from the great cities of the country,
who unhesitatingly pronounce it an em-
porium of which Florida may be justly
proud. Everything pertaining to the com-
plete furnishing of the home may be found
here in abundance from the most humble
and inexpensive article to the grander and
more pretentious commodities; this con-
cern has also just added a very extensive
carpet department which is replete with
the choicest productions of this country
and the orient, which they offer at very
One of the most commendable features
of the E. E. Cleaveland Furniture Co. is
that they never indulge in misleading

tions of any nature are never permitted in

fully recommend this firm to everyone re-
quiring anything in this line and a visit
will doubtless prove remunerative to those
accepting their open invitation to eal.
