Lumbermen Deny the Statement by Superintendent Hiz
Savannah, Dec. 4.-"The great trouble inability of the Seaboard to receive from
that the roads now have in handling the
vast tonnage that is pouring into the va-
rious ports is really not entirely on ac-
count of the shortage in equipment, but
* the lack of yard room, the lack of motive
power and the lack of system after the
cars arrive in the ports." The above
statement is in part of a reply prepared
in answer to the statement by Mr. C. H.
Hix. general superintendent of the Sea-
board Air Line, that the congestion on the
roads is partly due to the delay in unload-
ing and sending back empty cars by the
A delegation of lumbermen forming the
lumber committee of the Board of Trade,
and headed by Mr. Harvey Granger called
upon Mr. Hix relative to his interview
published in the Morning News yesterday.
When seen by the committee, Supt. Hix
stated that he did not refer to Savannah
in particular, but to conditions generally.
When asked about the matter by a Morn-
ing News reporter last night he reiterated
his statement that the shippers are not
prompt in unloading. "Savannah is no
better and no worse than other ports,"
said he. "and the conditions referred to
The article prepared by the committee
points out that despite the statement that
every effort had been made to keep the
Seaboard abreast of the increased busi-
ness activity, it 'iad on hand fewer cars
than one year ago, and that, according
to the trust agreement, it would have less
flat cars next year than at present. The
committee says further that although the
tonnage of the Seaboard according to its
own statement has increased 716,845 tons,
no increase has been made in the rolling

General Manager G. M. Garrett who ar-
rived in Savannah yesterday agreed with
Mr. Hix. Mr. Garrett, who is in the city
acquainting- the local officials with his
policy. spent a very busy day. The after-
noon was utilized in becoming acquainted
with the local situation and the evening
in conference with Supt. Hix.
"I know nothing as yet of the Seaboard
or of Savannah," said Mr. Garrett. "but
there is one thing I can say: The Sea-
Shoard, as well as every other railroad in
the South, is confronted with a tremen-
dous problem. The prices of all railroad
commodities are so greatly increased, and
the public and the legislatures are so de-
ternmined to do away with the sole asset
4-f the railroads, their net earnings, that
soon the roads will be compelled to run
for just about what they receive. The
entire slogan is for lou-e" rates, not rec-
ognizing the increased .ost of everything.
Soon the entire profit will be taken away
aiid then God help the railroads."
'Supt. Hix's visit has brought about one
great benefit. The embargo placed upon
the Seaboard by the -tentral of Georgia
Railway has been lifte#l. Because of the
the Central cars sent to the former line,
the Central refused to handle cars moving
from the Seaboard to it. An arrangement
was made yesterday by the two roads
that will do away with this trouble in
the future. The new arrangement will
admit prompt delivery of the Seaboard
cars whenever they are sent to points on
the Central's lines.
Pleased with Conference.
The lumbermen were much pleased with
the reception accorded them by Supt. Hix,
and state that he assured them the con-
dition at Savannah was not as bad as at
Jacksonville and Fernandina. Since the
statement of the committee was drafted,
however, one lumber dealer who has ex-
tensive interests in Fernandina, stated
that no congestion existed at that point.
A member of the committee, in discuss-
ing the matter, said last night: "I am
glad that Mr. Hix consented to the inter-
view with the Morning News. It gives us
an opportunity to refute him from the
Seaboard's own figures. The only way we
can hope for relief is to go at the roads
hammer and tongs. It seems strange that
it should take a railroad ten years to dis-
cover that there was an increase in bus-
iness. By Mr. Hix's own statement the
road has been negligent in providing for
the increased business. But from all ap-
pearances some little relief is in sight."
The Seaboard's managerial party will
leave for Jacksonville this morning.
Speaking of local conditions, Mr. Garrett
said: "I found affairs in Savannah very
satisfactory. Every one is as busy as can
be. and is making every effort to keep
things moving. We are going to go ahead
on the constructive policy and everything
that can be done to improve the road will
be done. Plans are being made all the
time and the management is always con-
sidering things that will he of benefit."
Lumber Committee's Reply.
The statement of the Lumber Commit-
tee is as follows:
Savannah, Ga., Dec. 3.- Referring to
the article published in the Morning News
of this date, we would like to call your
attention to the following remarks that
we think should be replied to:
We note that Supt. Hix states that the
tonnage of freight from the South has
increased 112 per cent in the last ten
years, and that their shipping facilities
have only been increased 42 per cent.
t seems to us that with this admission
by Supt. Hix that his railroad is neces-
sarily culpable in not supplying sufficient
shipping facilities to handle the increase
as shown by his own figures.
It certainly should not take them ten
years to find out that business is being
inc-eased. We would suggest that they
should certainly be able to appreciate
these facts according to their own state-
ment as shown in their sixth annual re-
port for the year ending June 30, 1906.
We would call your attention to this
statement as submitted by them and you
will note that according to their inven-
tory of equipment as of that date that
they had on hand one year previous 1,628
forty-foot flat cars, and that there were
destroyed during that year forty-five
forty-foot flat cars, which left them on
hand June 30, 1906, with 1,583 forty-foot
Their statement shaws that on other
flat cars that they had on hand June 30,
1905, 1,653 cars, and that they sold dur-
ing the year 451, destroyed 157, and trans-
ferred 20, or a total of 628 flat ears, which
left them on hand June 30, 1906, with
only 1,025 flat cars. This shows a deficit
during the year of 673 flat cars total,
and there were none purchased by them
at all during their current year.
In addition to this, the annual report
shows that according to their car trust
obligations that there are no flat cars at
all to be built by them, which, of course,
will necessarily mean, that on account of
deterioration, destruction, etc., that this
equipment will be much less at the end of
next year, according to their statement.
Short 386 Cars.
According to their own report, even fig-
uring that they have purchased some few
numbers of gondolas, ventilated box cars,
stock cars, etc., that they are still short
386 cars of all character to what they had
in 1905, and it is also shown that their
rolling stock has been decreased; and this
seems to us to prove conclusively that
they should certainly have more rolling
stock to handle their business; and for
this reason it is found.that the conges-
tion has not been caused by the lumber-
men not handling their business properly
In addition to the facts as shown that
the Seaboard has less cars today than
they had in 1905, we do not lay the en-
tire delay and blockade, as it now exists
in their yards, to the lack of rolling stock.
As shown by their statement, their ton-
nage has increased 716.845 tons and they
have not only not increased their rolling
stock, but they have not increased their
yard facilities for handing this enormous
increase in tonnage, and in our opinion is
one of the principal reasons that the Sea-
board Air Line yards at this point are
blocked today and such a large number
of cars are tied up on their terminals.
To show the Seaboard Air L:ne officials
that this blockade is not caused by the
lumbermen not promptly handling the
cars after they arrive in Savannah. we
will state that one of the shippers has
just paid the schooner Helena twelve and
a half days' demur:age on account of the
failure of the Seaboard Air Line to de-
liver the cars that were intended for the
loading of this vessel. although every car
was in Savannah or on the line o their
road in their possession before the vessel
actually went on demurrage.
We submit further that the lumber-
men are not to blame for the congested
condition of the Seaboard yards. Going
over the records of seven of our concerns
in this city these records show that there
are one hundred carloads of lumber in the
Seaboard yards undelivered, all of which
have been continuously ordered from the
date of arrival. Some of these cars show
that they have been in Savannah since
Oct. 9, and the consignees in a great many
instances, on account of the Seaboard Air
Line failing to deliver these ears, have
been forced to buy the contents of the
same in the Northern market at an enor-
mous advance in price and necessarily
at a great loss to them, and now have the
contents of thesd do .ayed ears their
hands, which they will have to dispns of
at a loss.
In addition to the one hundred ears now
ii. the Seaboard yards, the records show
from 150 to 250 cars along the line of road
hung up by the orders of the officials on
account of the blockaded condition of
their yards at this port, some of them
having been shipped thirty days.
In making up this statement we have
only taken into consideration the records
of seven concerns on account of our lim-
ited time in which we desire to reply to
Supt. Hix. Doubtless if we were to take
in all the lumber concerns centering at
this port, we could easily double the
number of cars in their possession both in
their yards and along the line of road.
It has been the desire of the lumbermen
doing business at this port to at all times
work with the railroads, as we realize
that unless the ears are relieved promptly
after their arrival here that we are the
sufferers. There are certain laws promul-
gated by the Railroad Commissio, which
<'ves the consignees rights to collect de-
murrage for the failure to deliver after
their arrival at the port, as well as the
-ight to collect for detention in transit,
but -e venture to say that very few of
us have taken advantage of this law,
realizing the enormous increase in busi-
ness and the difficulty to which the rail-
roads have been put in securing equipment
for this vast increase in tonnage. Still,
when a superintendent deliberately states
that all the congestion at the ports is due
to the lumbermen, in our opinion we are
satisfied that he is not conversant with
the situation, as the records we have
riven you above show.
Cause of Trouble.
The great trouble the roads now have in
handling the vast tonnage that is pouring
into the various ports is really not en-
tirely on account of the shortage in equip-
Trent. hut the lack of yard room, the lack
of n otive power and the lack of system
after the cars arrive at the ports. The
Coast Line recr.rds show that the deten-
tion to all lumber cars delivered over their
terminals has been less than sixteen hours,
which shows conclusively that the coa-
-ignees do unload their cars promptly
when they are delivered on their tracks,
and the congestion now existing in itb
4 'IE TIMNEKLY INT'TT r\RTTAL RECORD.
Seaboard yards is entirely the fault of the
Seaboard to make delivery in accordance
with the consignee's orders, which orders
they have held in a great many instances
before the cars have arrived.
The lumbermen- for years have seen
other classes of freight given preference
over theirs, both in transportation to the
port, as well as movement to the various
steamers and sail vessels after it arrives.
Often the case our cars are side-tracked
for the handling of special cotton and na-
val stores ears to certain steamers, the
lumbermen simply taking the best they
can get and begging with the railroads to
deliver according to their orders.
The Special Lumber Committee of the
Board of Trade, who were appointed to
confer with Supt. Hix this morning, had
a very pleasant interview with this gen-
tleman and had every assurance from him
that the situation will be improved, and
he took very great pains to state that his
remarks were not intended for Savannah
alone, but covered the general conditions
over the entire South, and speaking for
his line of read, especially at Jackson-
ville and Fernandina.
Mr. Hiz's Statement.
The statement of Mr. Hix, to which
the lumbermen object, is contained in the
following from the Savannah News:
"The unprecedented and unexpected in-
dustrial activity and the inability of the
car manufacturing companies to meet the
demand upon them is the cause of all the
trouble with southern railroads."
This statement was made by Mr. C. H.
Hix, general superintendent of the Sea-
board Air Line, last night. He gave the
railroad's side of the controversy that
has arisen between the manufacturing
and traveling public and the roads.
Supt. Hix, who is in Savannah on a
tour of inspection, spent his entire time
looking into the affairs of the Seaboard.
The only solution to the problem, he said,
is time in which to get affairs arranged.
"The roads are making every effort pos-
sible to move the freight," said Supt. Hix,
"and you can readily see that it is as
much to our advantage to keep things go-
ing as to the shippers. The tonnage of
freight from the South has increased 112
per cent.. and the shipping facilities only
42 per cent. in the past ten years. The
I-asiness handled has been enormous.
Never in the history of the United States
I: s s -h activity been seen. The rail-
roads simply cannot keep up with the
demand. If we were to get one division
in order and then move to another, by
the time the second part is complete the
first has grown away from us, and we are
just where we were before. It is impos-
sible to get cars within a year after order-
Has Ordered New Stock.
"The Seaboard has on file now an order
for 3.000 cars and ten locomotives for de-
livery this year, and twenty-five locomo-
tives for next year. The demand for
double' tracks is also apparent. But we
are unable to get these yet. Another
great trouble is that the shippers do not
unload their cars promptly. The lumber
dealers allow cars to stand on the sidings
ten days and often longer, at the ex-
pense of the railroads. The reason is that
the ships are not always at the docks
an dalso that they hold them in cars until

as soon as possible and let the other fel-

"The labor trouble is getting to be a
menace. The manufacturers are unable
to get laborers, the railroads are unable
to get laborers, an altogether the situa-
tion is getting ominous. It is a surpris-
ing but true fact that the average dis-
tance covered on all roads by a regularly
loaded freight car is but twenty-five miles
a day. Of course the shippers do not con-
sider these things. The financial nerve is
the most sensitive nerve in the body, and
these men are touched in their pocket-
"Lumber, cotton, tobacco, everything Is
in greater demand than ever before, aad
commands higher prices, and naturally
the shippers wish to get their goods to
the market. We are doing our utmost
to accommodate them, but of course there
S is always room for complaint.
"There is no doubt that some of the
lumber men have bone under because of
this trouble. But it is unavoidable. It
would mean more money to us to move
the freight quickly, sad we are straining
every effort to do so. The division sup-
erintendents have been working day and
night trying to keep the yards lear. In
time it will all work out right. The bhp-
ments of lumber, oil and cotton have hI-
creased wonderfully. Last year it look-ed
as though there would be a lull, but none
came. The cotton shipments fell away,
but that was because no labor could be
had. We will be glad to meet the com-
mittee from the lumber dealers.
"Although we have not made our
troubles public, they have been felt none
the less keenly. The statement made
that the Seaboard is not willing to spend
money for improvements must have been
made unadvisedly. The Seaboard has paid
no dividends except one that was made
by a redivision of the stock. There Is no
attempt at standing still on this road. I,
too, feel justly proud of our passenger
put in use. But until this time, we must
just possess our souls in patience."
Mr. G. M. Garrett, the new general man-
ager of the Seaboard, who was expected
yesterday, was detained and will arrive
this morning. Mr. Garrett wishes to be-
come acquainted with the local officials
and to inspect the condition of affairs
at this point.

In this program every step had been ini-
tiaed and conducted by Mr. Spencer with
the cordial concurrence of the voting trus-
tees and the board of directors, and it is
significant of the conservative and cau-
tious disposition of Mr. Spencer and his
supporters that this phenomenal enlarge-
ment of the system and its business was
not made the basis of any increase of
stock or even of an increase of dividends
Tleyond the amount contemplated and stat-
ed in the plan of 1893 with reference to
the properties originally reorganized. Ev-
ery dollar that could be borrowed under
President Spencer's management was put
into the property in the effort to enable
it to meet the ever increasing demands
of the vigorous and wonderful growth of
the South and its industries.
The mighty fabric which for twelve
years he had been molding must continue
under others to develop and +,- improve in
the service that it shall render to the
public, but never can it cease to bear the"
impress or to reveal the continuing im-
pulse of the master mind of its first presi-
dent. In the height of his usefulness and
his power he has been called away. but
the Inspiration of his shining example and
his lofty standards must ever animate
. To many other corporations conducting
the commerce of the country, as well as
to the Southern Railway, did Mr. Spencer
render invaluable services and all of them
will share in our sense of loss and personal
grief. As their chosen spokesman in the
tremendous agitation culminating in the
congressional action of 1906. his mastery
of his subject, his dignity of bearing and
his integrity of character commanded the
confidence and approval of the vast inter-
ests whose constitutional rights it became
his duty to assert and to protect.
To the great public, not less than to the
commercial interests, did he recognize his
obligation. How well he conceived, how
admirably he performed that duty, was
indicated in the last of his public ad-
dresses his last message to his friends
in the South, delivered at Montgomery,
Ala., on October 25, 1906, an address which
deserves wide circulation and close con-
sideration, not only in his own South that
he loved so well, but throughout the
whole country, which he had learned to
know far better than most of its citi-
zens. wherever barn.
His chosen career has closed, but the
wisdom and the virtues that characterized
that career will abide as long as there
shall be a regard for duty bravely done
and for high service gallantly rendered.
To his family we extend our deep and
most respectful sympathy and our assur-
ance that for them, as well as for his as-
sociates, honor and happiness will ever
result from their relation to Sampel Spen-
cer, that just and upright man and offi-
WRITER IN THK HNW YORK PACKER
REFERS TO FLORIDA FRUIT
The special Florida correspondent of the
New York Packer, writes the following
letter from Quay:
]very town one goes to in Florida has
some noticeable attraction, sometimes
within sight of the station, but more often
away beck out of sight. Quay has both.
The frst one the writer ran up against
was W. R. o(peland's beautiful home one
mile out in the sticks. Did T say sticks?
T mean among the palms. This place is
so hidden by huge palm and live oak trees
that one has to be within a few rods to
see the house and then hunt for hours
among orange and grapefruit groves to
find the owner, but it pays to find him,
for more than one reason. Here in a plot
of 50 acres is a wilderness of the finest
fruit trees that Florida can produce, so
loaded with fruit that one wonders how
the trees can hold it. Back of this grove
is the vegetable farm of tomatoes. egg-
plants and beans, which are being shipped
daily. Oranges and grapefruit are sel-
dom shipped from this section until late
in the winter or early spring, as there is
no danger of freezing here, and the fruit
in this grove as well as others, is allowed
to remain on the trees until thoroughly
ripe. which is no doubt the main cause of
Indian River oranges superior quality.
The second noticeable attraction men-
tioned is E. C. Walker's 13-acre plantation
r ght here in town, with a beautiful home
site on a Florida mountain. A Florida
mountain is merely a hill, but as there are
so few hills here, when one sees a hill it
looks like a mountain. This place has
acres of fine orange lands, grapefruit
-roves and is one of the most desirable
places in the State, especially for one
who wishes a home for beauty as well as
future profit. Unlike most people with
a really desirable and well located home,
Mr. Walker offers this place for sale, as
he has so much land five miles back in the
woods to look after that he cannot give
this place the attention it requires.
*T, M. Morgan & Co.. general merchants,
are doing a fine business here in all kinds
of suppFes-crate materials, etc.
.. M. McCullers is one of the early ship-
pers of beans. He is already receiving
returns for shipments which are netting
Going from here across the Indian river
two miles to Johns Island, one finds some
beautiful homes and hospitable people.
When upon first landing one is not al-
lowed to go further without first taking
dinner, it is quite natural that we fall in
love with both the country and the people.
This was the case at F. C. Poppell's beau-
tiful home on the banks of the east shore
of Indian river. Here one finds beautiful
scenery, fresh ocean air and plenty to
eat. Mr. Poppell is one of the many win-
ter vegetable growers here, and is shipping
beans in plenty, but the most attractive
part of his place is the fine young orange
and grapefruit grove back in the center
of the island. This grove is but from
three to five years old, yet there are hun-
dreds of boxes of the finest quality of the
-olden fruit among the dark green fol-
iage of perfectly healthy trees, which
goes to prove that this island country is
as good for fruit growing as vegetables.
E. S. W. Holland is another large grow-
er of beans, having nine acres for winter
shipping, with ten acres to plant for a
later crop; ten acres of young orange
grove, guavas and other tropical fruits.
Among the other growers who are mak-
ing daily shipments of beans from this
place are B. B. Whidden, W. R. Kemp,
J. L. Chambers, Charles Harris, C. .1.
'leains and J. T. Jenkins. the last named
having fourteen acres of fine vegetable
land covering the whole space between the
two branches of the river.
Across the eastern branch, between the
river and the ocean. are some good grow-
ers. esl:ecially J. S. Brooks, who has ten
ncres of fine beans for fall and winter
shipment and tomatoes for eariy spnng.

Again the Record warns naval stores
operators and those engaged in the saw-
mill business to be careful. Read the
United States code on peonage and be gov-
erned by the law in the case.
Sanford is reaping a harvest of wealth.
Her lettuce and celery crops this year are
ONLY THE BBGIONING.
If we are to take into consideration the
developments in the prosecutions for
peonage for the past few weeks, it is evi-
dent that the people of Florida and other
States are just beginning to appreciate
the fact that there is a peonage law on
the United States statutes and that the
United States authorities are determined
to see that that law is enforced.
To the Record it appears that there il
a great deal of noise made about nothing.
While we admit that there have been
some who have gone beyond the bounds
of reason in restraining the movements of
laborers, we have yet to see a single case
wherein those who have set up such a
howl about being detained were justified
in leaving the employ of those who were
called upon to advance money to either
bring them South or to otherwise attach
them to their force of laborers.
The national government is going a
great distance in the prosecution of these
cases. It has sent the assistant United
States attorney general South to handle
the matter. Those who have set up
this howl of peonage are those who come
South because their expenses are paid and
who jump their contracts, leaving those
who have advanced them to suffer the los.
If these men were fair, if they lived
up to their words, desirous of meeting
their ;ust obligations and willing to 0lo
the right thing, there would be no charge
of peonage lodged against those who are
krown to be honest and respectable citi-
zens of this state.
But The Record has repeatedly caution-
el its readers and especially those who
are engaged in the manufacture of lum-
ber or naval stores to be cautious and
not to place themselves in jeopardy even
by the slightest suggestion. The least
hint dropped by them to those in their
employ may be used as a basis for bring-
ing the peonage charge against them.
From che remarks dropped here and
there by the special agents of the United
States government and some of the at-
torneys who are employed in these cases
to asbsst the district attorney, it is evi-
dent that the indictments returned this
week against Mr. O'Hara and others are
only the beginning. There are those who
have not the slightest intimation that
they are to be hauled up before a Un;ted
States Commissioner or a federal grand
jury, who may have a warrant served
upon them at any time.
In the meantime the people of Florida
are accepting this situation gracefully and
immense and the two vegetables are bring- are patiently awaiting the outcome.
ing good prices.
Spirits appear unable to rise. In fact
there appears to be a general lull in the
naval stores market.
Mr. D. G. Crenshaw states that there
is to be a smaller box cut next season.
Mr. Crenshaw is a keen observer and a
student of naval stores and is in position

Waycross, Ga., Dec. 3.-The decision of
the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com-
pany to use cypress croesties in their new
freight yard here, will clean up quite a
number of cypress forests around this

Trust Mortgage Filed.
Grand Rapids, Mich.. Dec. 4.-The filing
of a $22,000 trust mortgage by the Muske-
gon Trust Company running to the Michi-
gan Trust Company, of Grand Rapids,
simultaneously with the issuance of a
warrant for John L. Hisey, treasurer and
general manager of the company charging
him with obtaining money under false
pretenses, caused a great stir in Muske-
gon today. Hisey was reported to have
disappeared but Secretary George T.
Hume, of the milling company who filed
the mortgage, asserts that he is in Battle
Creek at a sanitarium. Experts are ex-
amining the books of the company. Secre-
tory Hume says the trust mortgage is to
gain time in which to realize cash for the
company's ample assets to cover the
claims of creditors. The assets aggregate

the date of opening bids for the comple-

GOVERNMENT REACHES THE CLI-
MAX IN THE ARRESTS ON THE
CHARGE OF PEONAGE.
With the returning of several true bills
against Mr. F. J. O'Hara, of Hodges &
O'Hara in the United States Court Thurs-
day the climax in the prosecution of those
charged with peonage in th:s State appears
to have been reached. Not only did the
grand jury return indictments charging
peonage, but it also returned an indict-
ment charging him with returning a man
to his place with the intent of holding
him as a slave.
There were five indictments returned by
the grand jury growing out of the cases
at Buffalo Bluff, one of them, including
A. A. Thompson, R. L. Arent, S. S.
Schwartz, George F. Burrell and "others
to the grand jury unknown," charging
conspiracy to commit peonage.
Nearly all of these indictments were
against Mr. F. J. O'Hara, of Hodges &
O'Hara. One was an indictment against
O'Hara's foreman, George F. Burrill. Two
of the indictments against O'Hara charge
him with carrying away Franz Nebel with
intent that he (Nebel) should be held as
a slave, and the other charging him with
three charge him with returning certain
conspiracy to so carry away Nebel.
Of the remaining four against O'Hara,
laborers to a condition of peonage, and the
fourth charges him with holding Benjamin
\Vilenski in a condition of peonage. All
four charges are made by men who were
employed by O'Hara at the Buffalo Bluff
The indictment against George F. Bur-
rill, O'Hara's foreman, also comes from
Buffalo Bluff. Burrill is charged with
holding Edward Johnson in peonage.
The first of the peonage indictments,
that of the United States vs. F. J. O'Hara,
charges the defendant with a violation of
the provision of Section 5526, Revised
Statutes of the United States, in that he
"did return to a condition of peonage"
one Moritz Kerretn, "the said Moritz Ker-
retn having escaped from a condition of
peonage at another business establish-
ment," the Maytown place.
The returning of Kerretn to a condition
of peonage is alleged to have taken place
on June 12, 1906, and it is charged that
Kerretn was carried to Buffalo Bluff, and
there held in peonage. Assistant United
States Attorney General Charles W. Rus-
sell appears as prosecuting officer.
Another indictment charges the same
defendant, F. J. O'Hara, with holding
Benjamin Wilenski in a condition of peon-
age at Buffalo Bluff. This alleged offense
is claimed to have been committed on
June 12, 1906.
Still another indictment charges the
same defendant, F. J. O'Hara, with, on
June 12, 1906, returning Nathan Mayber-
ger to a condition of peonage at Buffalo
The Fourth indict charges the defend-
ant, F. J. O'Hara, with returning Bennie
Rubenstein to a condition of peonage at
The indictment returned against George
F. Burrill charges him with holding Ed-
ward Johnson in a condition of peonage at
Buffalo Bluff. Burrill's alleged offense is
claimed to have been committed on June
Burrill is one of O'Hara's foremen, and
the indictment specifies that his alleged of-
fense was committed at a place at which
he was employed as manager.
The peonage charge against Burrill, the
four peonage indictments against O'Hara.
and the other two indictments, charging
carrying away with intent to hold in slav-
ery, and conspiring to so carry away, are
based on the statements made by the men
sent here by Rt. Rev. Bishop Bonaventure
F. Broderick, of Staatsburg (N. Y.)
through the S. S. Schwartz labor agency,
on behalf of the Italian-American Agri-
cultural Society, agents of which organi-
zation were here in the last months of
last winter and the early months of last
All of the alleged peons are white men
and Germans, and with the exception of
Edward Johnson, are apparently German-
Jews. They have all, with the exception
of Wilenski, been detained in the Duval
county jail since the preliminary hearing

one alleged to have been carried away
with intent that he should be held in slav-
ery. It is the same person against whom
the alleged conspiracy on the part of Mr.
O'Hara and those jointly indicted with
him is charged to have been directed.
Those jointly indicted with Mr. O'Hara
on the conspiracy charge are A. A. Thomp-
son, R. L. Arent, S. S. Schwartz, and
George F. Burrill. This indictment is of
wider interest than the others, owing to
the fact that S. S. Schwartz, one of the
defendants, is the man who conducts the
New York labor agency through which Rt.
Rev. Bishop Broderick worked in sending
the laborers to Florida and to Mr. O'Hara.
The Sections Used.
The indictments, which are signed by
Assistant Attorney Gen. Russell as prose-
cuting officer, are brought under sections
5525. the one regarding holding in slavery,
etc., and section 5540, the "conspiracy"
section. These two sections, under which
the indictments referred to above are
brought, are as follows:
Section 5525, Revised tSatutes: "Every
person who kidnaps or carries away any
other person, with the intent that such
other person be sold into involuntary ser-
vitude, or held as a slave; or who entices,
persuades, or induces any other person to
go aboard a vessel or to any other place
with the intent that he may be made or
held as a slave, or sent out of the country
to be made or held; or who in any way
knowingly aids in causing any other per-
son to be held, sold, or carried away to
be held or sold as a slave, shall be pun-
ished by a tine of not less than $500 nor
more than $5,000, or by imprisonment not
more than five years, or by both."
The Conspiracy Statute.
The "conspiracy" statute, under which
Mr. O'Hara and the others mentioned
above are indicted, is as follows:
Section 5440, Revised Statutes: "If two
or more persons conspire either to commit
any offense against the United States, or
to defraud the United States in any man-
ner or for any purpose, and one or more
of such parties do any act to effect the
object of the conspiracy, all the parties to
such conspiracy shall be liaoe to a pen-
alty of not less than $1,000 and not more
than $10,000, and to imprisonment not
more than two years."
The indictment brought against Mr.
O'Hara and others under this section
charges them with conspiring to violate
the provisions of section 5525 (the section
first quoted above). The particulars of
the indictment are as set forth below:
The indictment against Mr. O'Hara un-
der the "slavery" statute charges the fol-
dictment, it will be noticed, the govern-
ment does not have to prove any indebt-
edness of any nature whatsoever, on the
part of Nebel to the defendant.
The "conspiracy" indictment, brought
under sections 5440 and 5525, was returned
against F. J. O'Hara, A. A. Thompson, R.
L Arent, S. S. Schwartz, George F. Bur-
rill, "and others to these grand jurors
unknown." There are four courts in the
indictment, as follows:
The first count charges that the defend-
ants, on June 8, "did conspire to carry
away one Franz Nebel, with intent that
he should be held as a slave."
The statute requires that an overt act
by one or more of the alleged conspirators
be shown and the act charged in this
count which is made on the first clause of
the statute (quoted in full above) is that
the defendant, Arent, with intent to carry
out the purpose of the alleged conspiracy,
met Nebel here in Jacksonville when the
vessel on which he arrived from New York
reached this port.
The second count charges that the de-
fendant conspired to "induce" (second
clause of section 5525) the said Nebel to
go to a place "south of Palatka" with
intent that he should be held as a slave.
The overt act alleged to have been done
in the effort to carry out this part of the
alleged conspiracy was that one or more
of the defendants "compelled him (Nebel)
to go to a railroad station in the said city
(Jacksonville) from which trains then ran
customarily toward the said place south
The third count charges the defendants
with conspiring to "knowingly aid in
causing" (last clause of section 5525) the
said Nebel to be carried away with intent
that he should be held as a slave. Under
this count, of course, no overt act is re-
quired to be proven.
The fourth count of this indictment
charges that the said Franz Nebel "and
other laborers" were, on June 5, through
the labor agency of S. S. Schwartz, then
being conducted in New York city "induced
to be carried away (second clause of sec-
tion 5525) from the city of New York to
be held as slaves within the said "this
Then the direct charge is made that
Schwartz himself, "by deception," caused
the men, including Nebel, to go from New
York to Florida, etc.
Attorneys who have been following peon-
age cases and kindred cases since the gen-
eral prosecution of such cases was begun
several years ago with renewed energy on
the part of the government against south-
ern men, were not very much surprised

According to the New York papers,
Schwartz is already being held there, un-
der an indictment returned against him
in the United States district court for the
southern district of New York, charging
him with violation of section 5525, the
"slavery" or "kidnapping" section.
The evidence in the hands of the govern-
ment there, according to New York ex-
changes, lead to the revocation of the li-
cense given Schwartz to conduct a labor
agency. The indictment against Schwartz
here is believed to be due to the efforts
of Miss Quackenbos, a special assistant
district attorney for the southern district
of New York, who came here to work up
the case against Schwartz that is to be
tried in New York.
Bond Is Furniahed.
Of the other men jointly indicted with
Schwartz and Mr. O'Hara on this con-
spiracy charge, Mr. A. A. Thompson is an
employee of the latter, and Mr. George F.
Burrill, who was also indicted separately
on a charge of peonage, is Mr. O'Hara's
foreman at one of his places. Just who
Mr. R. L. Arent is was not stated, but
he is a Florida man.
All of the defendants indicted have
given bond for their appearance for trial
on the indictments returned against them.
The cases, which will undoubtedly be fol-
lowed with interest throughout the en-
tire country, will probably come up for
trial next week.
It is understood that these cases are to
be called next week. A special venire of
thirty-five has been summoned from
which to draw a jury for the first case
which is to be called. This venire was
drawn from the box and are summoned
to appear here on next Wednesday. Most
of the number are white and some of them
are among the leading business men of the
Perhaps the hardest fight ever wit-
nessed in the United States district court
here will be seen when this case is brought
to trial. Mr. O'Hara has to defend him
Colonel W. M. Toomer, one of the ablest
lawyers in the South and a gentleman
who has devoted a great deal of time and
study to peonage. With Colonel Toomer
will be associated George M. Powell of
this city and S. J. Hilburn. of Palatka.
It is the general understanding that
there will be a great many other peonage
cases brought before the United States
court in this State before the end is
reached. Special agents of the United
States government have been investigat-
ing in this State with a view of learning
just as much as possible and to secure the
arrests of all those who can possibly be
charged with this offense.
In addition to the indictments already
mentioned, another indictment was re-
* turned against Mr. F. J. O'Hara, charging
It is generally understood now that the
defendant will be arraigned on next Thurs-
day. What the course of the defense will
be remains to be seen. but it is generally
believed that an attack upon the indict-
ments will be first made.
D. G. CRENSHAW SAYS LABOR CON-
DITIONS ARE IMPROVING.
"Labor conditions are slightly improv-
ed," said Mr. D. c. Crenshaw at the Ara-
grouped with some of his trends in the
corridors of the hotel. While he stated
that the labor conditions were slightly
improved, he made the statement advised-
Referring to the box cut for the coming
year it was the positive opinion of Mr.
Crenshaw that it would be much smaller
than it was for the season pust closing,
and that box cutting would begin rather
late. The opinion of Mr. (renshaw was
voiced lby a number of other naval stores
men who were seen here during the week.
It appears to be the general concen.us of
opinion among operators and factors that
the box cut this year is to be much small-
er. A great many reasons have been given,
not the least important of which is that
the financial conditions of the industry
this year is not what it ought to have
Factors in Jacksonville state that their
reports are to the effect that the box cut
is to be small, and that the operations
are to be later this season than they were
IRISH POTATO CROP IN HASTINGS
St. Augustine. Dec. 2.-The farmers of
Hastings who have been busy for several
months preparing for the Irish potato
crop. are now redoubling their efforts as
planting time approaches.
Nearly all of the growers now have their
fields well broken up and in many cases
are practically ready for the seed and fer-
tilizer. The acreage this year will be far
greater than that of any previous season,
several new farmers have located since
last spring, while a number of the former
growers will increase their fields materi-
Seed and fertilizer is now being deliv-
ered at the station in carload lots and
within a few weeks most of it will be in
the ground. The planting season will be-
g'n during the last week of December and
will continue until the middle of January.
Hastings, as a thrifty settlement con-
tinues to grow with rapid strides. It
now has two well stocked livery stables,
a number of up-to-date houses, barrel fac-
tories, saw mills and other industries to
meet the fast growing demands of the
community and every one of them is do-
ing an excellent business.
All of the other sections of the Irish po-
tato belt are getting ready for the plant-

18 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
(Continued from page 7.)
tees yesterday afternoon was held pri-
marily to make arrangements for the
coming of Commissioner Watson, and at
the same time to hear from Mr. Edwin
Brobston, chairman of the committee on
immigration, chairman of the committee
on immigration, who has just returned
from Columbia, S. C., where he attended
a meeting of the executive committee of
the Southern Immigration and Industrial
Association. The proceedings of the meet-
ing of the executive committee have been
published in the press dispatches, but as
concisely put by Mr. Brobston, may be
summed up as follows:
Work Is Mapped Out.
The executive committee first resolved
to encourage the establishment in each
southern state of a department of immi-
gration and commerce. The departments
of six or eight states working for a com-
mon purpose will have, of course, greater
financial and moral influence than one or
two states could bring to bear. Such uni-
ty of action will be mutually beneficial
and the force of a "solid south" isneeded
to counteract the adverse influences that
have long worked against this section.
Unity. therefore, in this great move for
development is of prime importance.
The next determination is that a com-
mittee of this association, representative
of the southern states, shall lay before
the committees of immigration of con-
cress the conditions in the South, and ask
for such modifications of the immigrant
laws as will facilitate the work of state
Must Have Return Cargoes.
To encourage the direct Introduction of
immigrants into southern ports, the steam-
ship companies must receive freight car-
goes. and to that end the association of
which Gov. Hevward of South Carolina
is president, will work to arouse "all com-
mercial, trade, industrial and like influ-
ences to the earnest practical support ,of
trans-Atlantic steamship service into the
ports of the South: that efforts be made
to have all trade and commercial organi-
rations in the southern states combine
their efforts to this end. with a view to
developing an independent commerce in
the states of the South. and of accomp-
lishing practical results in desirable Im-
migration to the South obtainable in no
other way." So that while we are get-
tine immigrants we will he building up a
profitable direct trade with Europe, utiliz-
ing our own seaports.
For Florila's Benet.
After briefly reviewing the efforts of
Commissioner Watson to secure immi-
grants for South Carolina. which have re-
sulted so satisfactorily and which means
the landing at Charleston of a large num-
her of immigrants from Europe monthly,
Mr. Brohston told of a plan proposed by
Commissioner Watson which may result
in Flor;da receiving a good number of im-
mirants to be landed in Tacksonville on
steamers direct from Europe. and also
result in the ships bringing over the im-
miroPnts carrying back to Europe cargoes
of Florida products. Not only pine tree
products or nhosnhate rock. but Florida
fruits and farm products.

to ship from Florida oranges and other
fruits and farm products.
After hearing Commissioner Watson ev-
press his views along these Fnes, Mr.
Brobston urged him to come to Jackson-
ville and address the Jacksonville Board < f
Trade. Although lii i. a very busy man
and has a number of invitations to de-
liver addresses throughout the country,
Commissioner Watson accepted Mrr. Brob-
ston's invitation and will be here Wed-
nesday and deliver an address in which
lie will fully outline his plans.
At the meeting yesterday a sub-coimmit-
tee. or steering committee. composed of
iurnmlhers of the immigration committee
and the committee on real estate and in-
surance, was appointed to arrange for the
coming of Commissioner Watson and also
to carry out the plans of the joint com-
mittee in regard to working up a strong
sentiment throughout the state in favor
of the establishment of a department of
immigration in the state government of
Florida. This sub-committee is composed
of the following members:
Col. Walter P. Corbett. chairman. Edwin
Brolhton. Charles L. Bonney, J. W. White.
James L. Taylor, C. Brickwedel, Roland
Woodward and Secretary Charles H.
At a meeting of this committee it was
decided that upon the arrival of Commis-
sioner Watson next Wednesday morning
lie is to le met at the depot by Col.
Corlett and Col. Taylor. At 11 o'clock the
otherr members of the sub-committee will
meet with him at the board of trade rooms
and discuss w'th him his plans for se-
curing immigrants for Florida. They will

All Urged to Attend.
The chairman and secretary of the com-
mittee were requested to prepare a special
call addressed to the members of the
Jacksonville Board of Trade urging each
and every member to attend the meeting
next Wednesday. to listen to Commi--
sioner Watson's address, and to join in
whatever action it may he deemed advis-
able to take.
A special invitation has been extended
hb Chairman Brobston of the committee
on immigration to Gov. Proward to at-
tend the meeting. Mr. Brobston is of
the opinion that it will be greatly to the
advantage of the entire state to have the
governor of Florida hear the plans to be
outlined by Commissioner Watson, for lie
believes that when Gov. Broward has heard
these plans, he will recommend to the leg-
islature the establishment of a department
of immigration and an appropriation suf-
ficient to sustain the department.
