500 acres. There is no less than that and
there may be more, but stopping to fig-

this promises to be, would make from ;he

and after that comes celery. but the cel-

4 THE WEEKLY INDUBSTRIATL RECORD.
MANMUACTURING HAS RAPIDLY AD
VANCED IN JACKSONVILLE.
The review of Jacksonville's commcrmt
and industry that is now being prepare]
by the industrial department of the Sea
board Air Line Railway, by its special
representative, Thomas K. Bates, who hat
been sent here for this purpose will make
a most splendid showing relative to the
growth of the manufacturing interests of
the city and State. The increase is phe-
nomenal and speaks in glowing terms ol
the substantial growth of the city.
The figures are comparisons for the year
1900 with those of 1905 show enormous
increases in the manufactured output of
this city, the figures are taken from the
latest census reports which have just been
placed in circulation and are very flat-
tering to Jacksonville.
In 1900 there were seventy-four estab-
lishments. capitalized at $1,857,844, em-
ploying 1.358 operatives who drew $599.-
754 per annum, the miscellaneous expenses
were $132,917, the cost of materials used
At the end of 1905 there were 125 estab-
lishments, capitalized at $4,837,281, em-
ploying 2,924 operatives who drew $1,375,-
668 per annum, the miscellaneous ex-
penses were $434,618, the cost of material
used was $2,789,492 and the value of the
product was $5,340,264. This comparison
shows very large percentage of increase
and in a way further demonstrates the
solid foundation upon which the com-
mercial fabric of this city rests.
In the State at Large.
The figures and comparisons for the en-
tire State for the same period shows equal-
ly as well and establishes the fact that
Florida is growing and developing all
In 1900 there were 1,275 establishments,
capitalized at $25,682,171, employing 37,-
252 operatives, who drew $12,216,019 in
wages, the miscellaneous expenses were
$4,177.941, the cost of materials used was
$12.847,187, and the value of the output
At the end of 1905 there were 1,413 es-
tablishments, capitalized at $32,971,982,

Florida has never posed as a manufac-
turing State, in fact she is just beginning
to realize that there is a future for her
;n this line and that the State is taking
advantage of its opportunities along this
line is shown by the above figures.
Certain sorts of manufacturing enter-
prises are indigenous to certain localities,
and there is no reason why this State, and
Jacksonville in particular, should not be-
come the seat of extensive cotton manu-
factures. It has the location, the trans-
portation, by both ocean and rail and many
other advantages that other cities cannot
boast of. It should also develop in the
line of furniture manufacturing, as the
timber is here in large quantities. It has
already taken its place in the matter of
fertilizer output and it is only a question
of a little time until it will also assume
proportions in other lines.

Chief interest, as far as the general pub-
le is concerned, centers in the peonage
eases, and four of them will probably be
tried at this term of the court. lTe eases
are as follows:
United States vs. F. J. (OHara, United
States vs. John P. Lynch, United Sfates
vs. Edward Geiger and United States vs.
Clayton. All the defendants, save the last
named, are white men and of considerable
prominence in their sections.
It is probable that the trial of these
eases will be marked by g legal battles,
and in the event a conviction is secured,
anneals are almost certain to be carried
to the higher courts. Both sides will be
represented by able counsel and every
point will be fought out by the attorneys.

The plan for a greater Jacksonville was

meeting of the council. The bill provides
for the extension of the city limits so that

In presenting the bills, given in full
above, Councilman Holt gave the following
as some of the reasons for adoption ot
the bills by the council, and at the same
time filed with the recorder a copy of a
map of which the accompanying is a dupli-
First-From a health and sanitary stand-
point it is of the greatest importance that
there should be some active supervision
and control of what is now the adjacent
territory to the present limits, such as
could be exercises by the city health au-
Second-There is unquestionably an ur-
gent necessity for some extended police
regulation. The mills, factories, railroad
shops, pleasure parks, both Phoenix and
Lincoln, docks and shipping interests along
the river front from Trout creek to the
railroad bridge, are conclusive evidence of
Third-The opening up and straighten-
ing of streets, the control of the grades of
same by the board of public works, so
that as the city grows there shall be some
uniformity of the same, is of vital impor-
Fourth-The extension of limits to the
lines as proposed will give us a Jackson-
ville of 50,000 to 60,000 population.
As to Taxation.
Fifth-Regarding the taxation proposi-
tion, which is the most important one to
the people living in the territory proposed
to be annexed, it must be borne in mind
that this property will have been assessed
for 1907 when this law goes into effect.
The 1908 taxes will not be due and paya-
ble before 1900. Even then this bill pro-
poses that this property can be taxed only
for such benefits as it actually receives.
It cannot be assessed for fire protection
and the like until such time as the water
mains have been extended.
Sixth-The adoption of this bill by the
people at the election which is proposed
in February will settle for all time the

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. b
Board of Trade of Jaksonville.
The industrial department of the Sea-
board Air Line Railway in its mercantile
and industrial review of Jacksonville,
which is now being prepared by its spe-
cial representative, Thomas K. Bates, of
Portsmouth, Va., will have the following
to say relative to Jacksonville's progresm-
ive Board of Trade.
The facts as set forth by Mr. Bates
come with the proper ring and reflects
the impression a stranger may receive of
the Jacksonville Board of Trade by a
brief sojourn in Jacksonville.
A Progressive Organisation.
The Jacksonville Board of Trade bears
the distinction of being one of the most
progressive municipal organizations in the
It is composed of the foremost represen-
tatives of finance and commerce of the
city, is wide-awake, progressive, alert and
works with a constant, indomitable ener-
gy for the furtherance of the city's in-
terests, that is admirable to behold.
Through its activity it is making the
name of Jacksonville famous throughout
The board believes that no great public
enterprise can usually beget sufficient mo-
mentum within itself, unaided by inde-
pendent forces, to properly correlate all
of its powers and reach the acme of ex-
cellence in the accomplishment of its self-
The building of a metropolitan city is
accomplished only after the pooling of
multifarious interests under such direc-
tion, leadership and inspiration as to give
the undertaking cast, form, intelligent in-
duction, aggregate strength, velocity and
momentum. Such a project contemplates
a wheel within a wheel, a master mind or
a directing energy, a strenuous, tireless
energy that has profound convictions, su-
preme confidence in itself and the cause it
represents and abiding faith in the
achievement of the end sought.
Of Invaluable Service.
Under the benign influence and direc-
tion of this organization, the hitherto
cross-purposes of the public spirited and
progressive business men are reconciled,
harmonized, assimulated, united and con-
centrated to render invaluable service for
both the city and State.
Whenever the upright, intelligent and
progressive men of any community forego
petty personal differences and throw their
combined strength into ways and means
for the general advancement through in-
telligent co-operative action, success in-
variably attends their endeavors.
The Jacksonville Board of Trade is an
invaluable factor in the development of
the city's material interests, it has sup-
ported every worthy undertaking to en-
hance local development and has strength-
ened the bonds of fellowship, good will
and unity of action. It has protected the
various interests it represents, upheld the
strength and dignity of the city's institu-
tions, entertained the city's guests and
built a character for Jacksonville from
the reflex of the men who comprise the
A Notable Effort.
The most notable effort of this board
was its achievement, in a great measure,
in having the St. Johns river channel deep-
ened to permit the entrance to this port
of ocean steamers. This was done by
bonding the county for $300,000 to begin.

Government Estimates on Output of Cotton,
Washington, Nov. 25.-The mind scarce-
ly can grasp the fact that a train 2,500
miles in length is needed within the next
few weeks to carry to market the cotton
crop of the United States. Yet this is the
estimate made by government experts.
Some idea of the magnitude of the crop
may be had when it is known that the
363,689 cars needed to move it would
form a train that the engine puffing in
San Francisco still would have 200 miles
of its rear buried in the waters of the
In addition, to this heavy traffic in cot-
ton, the railroads of the country this year
are facing more trying conditions in the
grain carrying trade. There were needed
in the last tyelve months 5,5SS.162 ear?
to move the bumper crops of the country
from farm to market. Never in history
have the transportation companies been
Sso taxed, and by reason of the marvelous
growth of all forms of commerce tlh'y
have not kept pace with conditions. al-
though locomotive and car manufacturers
are working day and night in an effort
to keep up with orders.
In view of this condition of affairs,
which gives promise of growing more ag-
gravated each year, the country is turning
to the development of new systems of
transportation. Although possessed of
the finest waterways of any nation in
the world, the United States has let them
country has devoted all its attention to
the development of railroads. This policy,
while laudable in itself, has cost American
merchants and manufacturers heavily in
lost trade, for Germany, England and
France, by reason of cheap water trans-
portation, have been enabled practically
to dominate the markets of Central anl
Rivers and Harbors Congress.
There is a tendency, however, toward
reform in question of transportation. The
national rivers and harbors congress,
wlich will hold ils convention here De-
ceml er i and 7, has been bringing the
matter s'lua ely before the people of the
country. and it will urge on the federal
government an annual appropriation of

Next week is to be "peonage" session in
the United States Court. It is expected
that several cases are to be tried there
during this term.
The Second Florida State Fair is a
thing of the past, but the good that it
has accomplished will be lasting.
The prices of naval stores for the past
week have been just about as stationary as
it would be possible to have them.
The indications are that the holiday
trade in Jacksonville is to be exceedingly
large this year. The Record, through its
advertising columns is to have a great deal
to do with making it so. The Record's
advertising columns bring trade.
The orange industry in Florida this year
has been remarkable in one way at least.
It has brought the State to realize that
there is a great difference in the produc-
ing value of Florida today to what there
was when the great freeze came. The ex-
tent of this year's crop will almost com-
pare with that of the year preceding the
great freeze, and still we do not regard
the orange or the citrus fruit industry
with being anything greater than other
things we have in this State.
WHAT FLORIDA HAS TO OFFER.
In this issue of The Weekly Industrial
Record, we publish something Ir mne inaus-
trial and commercial history of Sanford
from the pen of one of the editors of the
While Sanford is only one of a great
many of the Florida cities which has un-
dergone a great industrial and commercial
change, due to circumstances, a study of
what is presented in the article referred to
will tell something of the story of all
Florida. I demonstrates that Sanford is
in a better condition today than she was
a few years ago. The same statement
can be made of all Florida and while there
might be other conditions, other resources
and other industries to be referred to in
connection with other places in the State,
it would only show when accepted as a
whole, the great diversity of Florida's re-
sources and industries. There is not a
State in Florida where there are a greater
number of opportunities and where nature
itself offers so much. The fault in the
past, if there is really fault to be found,
has been in the failure of the people of a
naturally rich and productive State to
accept all that opportunity had to offer.
Sanford found only a few years ago that
she had within her limits and all about
her, land that could produce the best letl
tuce and celery in the world and more of
it per acre. She had men who went to
work to develop this great industry and
the result has been just what could have
beep expected. Sanford is rich today. She
is sending vegetables to the north and
has the balance of trade. The same op-
portunities exist all over Florida. If it is
not lettuce or celery, it is something else,
and the something else can be made to do
for other parts of Florida what this vege-
table industry is doing for Sanford.
The naval stores industry alone is creat-
ing a great wealth for the State, where a
few years ago there was but little tur-
pentine and rosin leaving Florida. Today
it is one of the chief resources of the
State and it will continue to be for some,
The people of Florida are learning the
resources of their State and they are De-
ginning to develop them.
RAILROADS UNABLE TO HANDLE
FREIGHT BUSINESS IN THE
The lack of facilities on the part of the
railroads of the South may temporarily
paralyze the lumber business of this and
other States. In Georgia the conditions
are described as follows by Mr. W. G.
Sherouse, of the Sherouse Lumber Com-
pany of Guyton.
Mr. Sherouse is inclined to believe that
the railroads are doing their best to give
facilities for moving freight, but there ap-
pears to be a lack of concerted action on
:he part of the shipper and the transpor-
tation companies. In this State the same
trouble is being experienced. Along the
lines of the Atlantic Coast Line, the
freight trains have been moving irregular-
ly on account of the lack of help. It is
apparent that the transportation compa-
nies are doing the best they can, but
with this done, they are unable to move
the freight on time.
"We have troubles of our own," "they
told me," said Mr. Shearhouse to a Savan-
nah News reporter, "and when I learned
that in some instances passenger trains
were delaped in coming into the city af-
ter arriving at the junctions on time, by
reason of the inability to handle the heavy
freight trains and get them out of the
way, I could well understand why it is
impossible to furnish freight cars suffi-
cient to handle lumber and other prod-
Mr. Shearhouse said that he knew of as
knew of as many as twenty-five sawmills
that had been forced to shut down be-
cause they were unable to get cars on
which to ship their product. "I was told
yesterday," Mr. Shearhouse said, "that
there was such a scarcity of cars here
that when one road turned over ten load-
ed cars to another road that it demanded
ten empties in return, and this, of course,
caused delay in the delivery of treight.
"'Some time ago 1 had occasion to ship
a large amount of boards to the Augusta
Lumber Company at Augusta. I applied
for cars and when they came 1 found that
they were box cars, and that I could not
get flat cars. I loaded the boards in these,
hoping that the trip was such a short one
they would not sweat and become unfit
for use. These boards were on the road
fifteen days, and before they had arrived
in Augusta the Augusta Lumber Company
had been forced to buy elsewhere. The
boards that I had shipped were practically
made unfit for use by being shut up in the
cars so long."
According to Mr. Shearhouse the lum-
ber men of this section of the State are
going to insist on collecting the $1 that
is allowed them for each day that cars
ordered by them are not delivered. This
is allowed by the Railroad Commission of
Georgia, Mr. Shearhouse said, and to pro-
tect themselves the lumber men are going
to demand that it be paid.
"From what I can learn," said Mr.
Shearhouse, "the fault lies, to a great ex-
tent, with the railroads, who should have
foreseen this freight congestion. The
greatest shortage at present seems to be
in fiat cars, which are absolutely eesen-
tial to the shipment of lumber.
"I suppose the railroads figured out four
or five years ago, when there was a short-
age of flat cars, that the lumber industry
in this section of the State, and in fact,
in the entire South, would soon be ex-
hausted, and that it would be foolish to
buy a large number of flat cars. It was
hoped that all future lumber products
could be handled on the equipment on hand
then, and now when the railroads are
anxious to purchase equipment the cannot
"We have been promised from time to
time that there would be a slackening ot
the rush and demand made for freight
cars, but as the holidays approached things
seem to be getting into a more demoral-
ized state, to one familiar with the
freight yards when everything is running
smoothly, and there is no delay in hand-
ling the vast amount of freight that comes
into and through this port, the present
conditions are a revelation."
Mr. Shearhouse is not the only one who
is becoming worried over the condition of
freight handling facilities. Local lumber
dealers say they receive complaints every
day of the inability or failure of the roads
to handle their shipments promptly, and
that it has come to pass that even where
cars are secured and loaded, it is several
days before a freight comes along that
can pick the cars up and carry them to
"If the present condition of affairs con-
tinue to exist, or rather, if such demands
for hauling freight are made on the rail-
roads as are made now," said a gentleman

who is in close touch with freight traffic
in the South, "double-tracking of all ot
the big trunk lines is imperative.
"I know that the principal cause ot ae-
lay now is the scarcity of rolling stock,
especially locomotives, but even with a
sufficient number of cars and engines it
would be a hard matter to meet the pres-
ent demands without double tracks. The
passenger service would be so interrupted
that the public would be constantly grum-
bling, and the business people would still
experience delays in receiving their mer-
JACKSONVILLE DEVELOPMENT COM-
PANY CLOSES LARGE REAL ES-
One of the largest real estate deals made
in Jacksonville recently was closed today
in the purchase by the Jacksonville De-
velopment Co. of all the lands owned by
Brooks G. White between the city limits
on Kings' Road'and Grand, something like
150 acres, all told.
The deed does, not specify the price and
the officers of the Development Company
as well as Mr. White are reticent regard-
ing that feature of it, yet it is known that
property adjoining this is selling for from
four to six hundred dollars an acre, and
the amount of money involved, therefore,
must have been away up in the thousands.
This property is one of the prettiest pieces
of acreage around Jacksonville and has
been looked at with a covetous eye by
many a real estate man, who knows the
possibilities of Jacksonville's suburbs, es-
pecially in that section of the city. Now
that it has been purchased by the Jack-
sonville Devedopment Co., it will at once
be sub-divided and made an addition to
Grand Park, this property bringing Grand
Park nearer to the present city limits by
fully a half mile. The property is sit-
uated on both sides of the King's Road,
running north to the Terminal Company's
ine and south to the Coast Line yards.
It has a number of desirable factory sites
on it, and as Jacksonville cannot grow on

Readers of the Metropola wil remem-
ber the phenomenal sale of Grand Park
lots only a few months ago. That suburb
is already building up in this short time,
and the addition of several hundred lots
in this new purchase will add greatly to
the general value of the entire property.
James A. Hollomon, general manager of
the Jacksonville Development Co., said to-
day that the lots in East Grand Park will
be placed on the market at from $75 to
$100 each, those on King's Road command-
ing the higher price. At these prices it is
safe to say the entire addition to Grand
Park will be sold out in a few weeks,
possibly a few days. Grand Park is al-
ready surrounded and intersected by rail-
roads, all of the trunk lines passing
through it, or near it, and the Metropolis
has good authority for stating that the
Gainesville and Gulf, when it comes into
Jack-onville, will also come through that
po'nt. An official of that road stated to a
Metropolis reporter only Saturday that
they had secured rights of way as far as
Randnd Crossing, which is the western line
of Grand Park.
The development of Jacksonville's sub-
urbs along high class, conservative lines
is a grea: and worthy cause and it is such
ente-prise as that shown by the Jackson-
ville Development Co. that is going to
make Jacksonville the greatest city in the

MORE CASKS OF ALLZEGD PEONAGE.
Pensacola, Nov. 26.-lt was announced
this morning that tomorrow sentence will
be passed in the United States Court up n
Manager W. Harlan, of the Jackson
Lumber Company; C. C. Hilton and S. E.
Huggins, employes of the same concern,
they having been convicted of conspiracy
to commit peonage. The three men are
now out on bond, Harlan being held under
a $3,000 bond, and Hilton and Huggins
$2,000. The penalty for the of which they
have been convicted is a fine of $10,000
or two years in the penitentiary, or both,
at the discretion of the court.
The cases will be appealed, as it is the
intention of those convicted to fight the
cases to the last courts. Tomorrow morn-
ing, also, the commencement of the peon-
age cases against Robert Ballagher et %l.,
will also commence, as a special venire
for a jury has been issued returnable at
10 o'clock, and while it is anticipated that
there will be some delay before the trial
commences, it is more than probable that
the takin of testimony will commence
Wednesday morning. One fact has been
lost sight of in these cases, and that is
that neither the company nor the alleged
peons are southerners. This has ben com-
mented upon to some extent in Pensacola,
but those residing outside of the city or
county have classed the lumbermen with
those of Florida and Alabama, who have
been engaged in the manufacture of lum-
ber for years. The capital for the pur-
chase and installing of one of the most
complete and model plants in the South
today was raised in the North and East,
the manager and all of the bosses came
from the same section, and the alleged
peons were sent South from New York,
so the case cannot be shouldered upon
Southerners, as some will probably en-
deavor to do. Heretofore the alleged peon-
age cases of Florida have consisted of
naval stores operators as the defendants,
and a few negro turpentine hands as the
alleged peons, and nothing so serious as
the Jackson Lumber Company case has
ever come before the courts of this city.
Big Cotton Cargo.
One of the big cotton cargoes of the
year is now being loaded at the Comman-
dancia wharf of the Louisville and Nash-
ville. The British steamer Lord Stansmore,
which arrived in port a few days since,
is now loading a cargo of 13,00 bales, for
Bremen and Hamburg, which will be as
large, if not the largest cargo to go out
of this port this season, and will have a
valuation of over half a million dollars.
DEFENDS ENGINEER CORPS.
Secretary Taft Is Emphatic o Niagara
Washington, Nov. 26.-Secretary Taft
of the War Department, declined to listen
to any reflections upon the integrity of
the corps of army engineers, and by em-
phatic interruption today changed the
course of arguments being made to him by
J. Horace McFarland, president of the
American Civic Association, of Philadel-
phia, in opposition to the diversion of wa-
ters from the Niagara river for the erea-
tion of power and for the transmission of
power from Canada to the United States.
Mr. MeFarland had found fault with
statements alleged to have been made in
a newspaper interview by Capt. Charles
W. Kut,. of the corps of engineers, who
investigated for the War Department the
applications of persons and corporations
for permit to divert water for power. Sec-
retary Taft criticised the circulars issued
by the association, particularly a state-
ment that it is proposed to divert from
the Niagara river a volume of water equal-
ing the outflow of the Potomac, Hudson
and Delaware rivers at their mouths. iHe
showed this statement was not true, and
that the exact facts are that it is pro-
posed to divert only about six, eight or
ten per cent of the volume of the Niagara.
Secretary Taft remarked: "I do not think
public opinion solicited on such argument
amounts to very much." The circular had
been written by Mr. MacFarland, who de-
fended it by saying that he meant the
fresh water outflow of these rivers.
EDUCATION OF NEGROES.
Armtrong Association Is Holding a

New York, Nov. 26.-The annual meet-
ing of the Armstrong Association, which
seeks to stimulate interest in the work of
Hampton and Tuskegee Institutes, and
the general industrial education of the
negroes, was held here tonight at the
home of the president, William Jay Schief-
Booker T. Washington, Rev. Dr. Lyman

dents, Mrs. Schieffelin, Mrs. Arthur Cur-
ties James and Robert C. Ogden; secre-
tary, Miss May Hurlburt; treasurer, A. S.
Frissel. George McAneney was made an
added vice president.

showed that the membership is not far
from a thousand and that the work of the
organization has been broadened by the
creation of the committee for improving

Walthall, Miss., Nov. 26.-The South's
rapid industrial development was tonight
attributed by Congressman John Sharp
Williams to the substantial political dis-

greater increases in mimnnf-Atring than

It was stated yesterday that this ship-

carloads a day from now on until Christ-
mas. The fruit is moving out in solid
trains, as many as five fruit trains mov-

transportation. The competition between
water and rail transportation has brought
the freight rates down and there is not a
city in Florida which possesses the advan-
tages that Sanford has in this way, ex-
cepting of course, the larger commercial
centers which are as favorably located.
The Clyde Line has again adopted a daily
boat service to Sanford from Jackson-
ville, and it is a good one.
As an indication of the growth of San-
ford, a new bank has recently been estab-
lished there and there appears to be bus-
iness sufficient to support the new and
the old bank as well.
There is not a county in Florida which
has been more progressive than Orange
in the construction of good roads and in
every direction leading out of Sanford
there are hard surfaced roads, with oth-
ers building. The latest enterprise in this
way is the building of a road which will
connect Orlando, Sanford and Daytona
beach, making a delightful automobile
road from Orlando to the Atlantic, a dis-
tance of about fifty-five miles. A ferry is
now being constructed across the St.
Johns a few miles from Sanford, and
when this is done the complete connection
will be made.
Sanford is growing and it is a perma-
nent and lasting growth, with resources
behind it which are being accepted and
taken advantage of by a progressive and

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Georgia Interstate Saw Mill Associa-
tion Meets In Jacksonville.
Clyde Steamship Company
The Georgia-Florida Sawmill Associa-
tion at its meeting in this city this week
discussed at length the labor situation and
commended the action of the Georgia au-
thorities in enforcing the vagrant law,
and considered other matters of interest.
It was decided by those present to con-
tribute $1,000 towards the Georgia build-
ing to be erected at the Jamestown Expo-
sition. This building is to be a reproduc-
tion of Bulloch Hall, the birthplace ot
President Roosevelt's mother.
The most interesting matter discussed
at the meeting was the shortage of rail-
road ears, and several members declared
that the failure on the part of the rail-
roads to provide them was proving a great
detriment to the lumber industry. The
mills, it was urged, often had orders coun-
termanded because there were no cars at
Appeal to Railroad Commission.
The association recently took the mat-
ter up with the Railroad Commission ot
Florida, and the commission promises to
punish all roads that are negligent in this
regard. The following letter from the
commission was read, which gave much
satisfaction to the members of the asso-
State of Florida,
Tallahassee, Nov. 26, 1906.
Gentlemen: Replying to yours of No-
vember 24th, addressed to Commissioner
Burr, I am directed to advise you that
in ordering cars in future, your shippers
should make their orders in writing, pre-
serving copies of the same. In the or-
ders they should state the number and
kind of cars needed, the articles to be
shipped and the destination of the ship-
ment. Then should cars not be furnish-
ed you within a reasonable time, let the
shippers prefer charges to the railroad
commissioners and the commissioners will
immediately serve notice on the road to
show cause why a fine should not be im-
posed for refusal to act as a common car-
In has charges to the commission, the
shipper should state in his own way that
he ordered a certain number of cars on a
certain date for the shipment of a certain
article to a certain destination, and that
up to the time of the filing of the com-
plaint, no cars or only a certain number
of the cars ordered have been furnished.
The fact is, the roads have not sufficient
equipment to handle the business which
is being offered them. The commissioners
are receiving complaints such as yours
from shippers in all parts of the State
daily, and some vigorous action must be
taken to compel the railroad managers to
purchase sufficient equipment to handle
the business that is being offered them.
If shippers, one after another, will file
formal charges with the commissioners,
after due hearing, the commissioners will
impose one fine after another until the
roads awake to thle realization that they
must purchase equipment or be swamped
The commission imposed a fine of $1,000
on the Seaboard about the middle of Oc-
tober, and others would have been impos-
ed before this, but shippers have not pre-
ferred charges. They seem to hesitate to
do this, thinking, no doubt, that it will
Ipejudite the railroads against them in
furnishing them cars, but they had as well
do so, for the roads could not treat them
much w lorse than they are doing now. The
conuini-sioners will be pleased to aet
promptly if shippers will file complaints.
(Signed) R. C. DUNN, Secretary.
Joint Meeting Planned.
During the meeting a committee con-
sisting of F. E. Waymer, A. G. Cummer
and F. J. O'Hara, was appointed to ar-
range plans for a joint meeting and con
ference of the members of the Georgia?
Florida Sawmill Association and represen-
tatives of the Baltimore Lumber tEx-
change, the Philadelphia Lumbermen's Ex-
change, the Wholesale Lumber Dealers' As-
-ociation of New York, the Yellow Pine
Exchange of New York and the Boston
Lumber Trade Association.
It was decided that the joint meeting
and conference should be held in Jackson-
ville next February, the date to be fixed
after the committee has corresponded with
the various organizations that are invit-
ed to participate.
The object is to have an annual confer-
ence between the sawmill men of Georgia
and Florida. who manufacture lumber and
the wholesale dealers and yard men at the
distributing points in the North. The first
meeting of this kind was held in Savan-
nah two years ago. The next meeting was
held in New York last winter and this sea-
son the meeting is to be held in Jackson-
It is expected that at least 100 or per-
haps 150 wholesale lumber dealers and
yard men from the northern distributing
points will attend the meeting and that
at least 150 members of the Georgia-
Florida Sawmill Association will be here
at that time.
The association wil be the hosts and
plans for an elaborate entertainment are
already on foot. A trip to St. Augustine,
a trip up the St. Johns river and numer-
ous other excursions are already men-
tioned and there will be a banquet.

(Continued from page .)
there is apparently a grave misunder-
standing as to just what peonage is. The
majority of laymen seem to be under the
impression that, so long as the men are
well treated, peonage does not exist. The
holding to involuntary servitude, to work
out a debt, is, however, what constitutes
peonage, regardless, legally, of whether
the men so held were ill treated, or "tend-
ered course dinners and wine suppers."
The law under which these peonage
prosecutions lie is brief and lear. It is
clearly stated in Section 1990, Revised
Statutes, (and this is the statute abolish-
ing the system of peomage in New Mex-
ieo and other territories and nullifying
any and all laws establishing such sys-
tem), defines it "involuntary service or la-
bor of any persons as peons, in liquidation
of any debt or obligation, or otherwise."
Where Prosecutions Lie.
Prosecutions lie under Section 5526, Re-
vised Statutes, which reads:
"Every person who holds, arrests, or re-
turns, or causes to be held, arrested or
returned, or in any manner aids in the
arrest or return of -y person to a con-
edition of peonage, shall be punished by a
fine of not less than $1,000 nor more than
$6,000, or by punishment not less than one
year nor more than five years, or by
Court decisions that have followed have
all been to the effect that the essentials
are holding in servitude to work out a
debt or obligation. This was emphasized
in the lyatt case, which went to the Su-
preme Court of the United States from
Florida. In no ease is it shown that the
good or bad treatment accorded the
peons has any effect on the offense of pe-
onage, save as it may determine the court
to impose a light or a heavy sentence on
the defendant, if convicted.
Notice is hereby given that on, to-wit,
the 20th day of February, A. D. 1907, I
shall apply to the County Judge of Duval
County, Florida, for my final discharge as
administratrix of the estate of James S.
Coghlan, deceased, and ask that my fnal
accounts be audited and allowed.

FACTS ABOUT FLORIDA.
Compiled By the Industrial Department
of the Seabeard.
The mercantile and industrial review of
Jacksonville, which is now being prepared
by the industrial department of the Sea-
board Air Line Railway for the purpose
of interesting northern visitors in the pos-
sibilities of Jacksonville, Duval county
and Florida, will reveal facts pertaining to
the State that will astonish even its res-
idents. Thomas K. Bates, the special rep-
resentative of the Seaboard, has been in
Jacksonville for the past five weeks gath-
ering material for the publication and
some idea of the progress he is making
may be had from his review of the State
which we herewith produce.
The State of Florida.
Very few people have any conception as
to the size of the State of Florida its in-
dustrial and commercial possibilities and
the innumerable variety of its products.
The combined area of Connecticut, Del-
aware, District of Columbia, Massarhu-
setts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode
man who loves to hunt and fish. He can
go gunning here for bear, wildcat, deer,
wild turkeys, geese, quail, squirred, rabbit,
coon and numerous birds and animals. If
one would rather fish the State offers
sport in this line that cannot be excelled
anywhere, you get them here two ounces
to two hundred pounds, and it is not nec-
essary to wait a week for a bite.
The State contains unknown quantities
of phosphate rock, which is proving a very
