For Florida 1906 Has Been a Most Prosperous Year,
The present year, which is drawing to a
-elose, has been the-most prosperous in the
history of this State. There was never a
time in the history of Florida when such
prosperity prevailed. On the eve of the
new year there is everything to indicate
that the year 1907 will even eclipse the
year just closing and that the industrial
-advancement of this and other Southern
States another year will be greater than
it has during the year 1906.
The Record has made it a custom to
make an industrial survey of the State at
the close of each year, and the one which
-we have just completed has brought sur-
primes of a most agreeable character. In
:lR parts of Florida the greatest prosperity
prevais. Every branch of industry, trade
and commerce is in a most prosperous way
and the advancement made during the past
year has been great.
This has been a good year for the far-
mer, manufacturer, miner and merchant.
They have advanced their interests and
will start on the new year with every-
thing to promise continued and increased
In studying Florida with a view of pre-
senting this report, The Record has not
sought to lass the various industries and
enterprises, but has taken them as a whole
and in that was secured information of
the general character of conditions in the
various sections of Florida. There is not
a section of Florida which reports a lack
of prosperity, and there is not one which
oes not report better times and a general
advancement all along the line. Especially
is this so of the famer and fruit grower.
They have had a remarkable year and all
of them appear to have prospered. Cotton
bas brought a good price, vegetables have
been in greater demand and at better
prices in the North than they ever have
in the past and the same may be said
about the fruits which this State sends to
market every winter and spring.
- Naval stores operators and the manu-
facturers of lumber are two industries
which do not figure as high as the others
In the record of prosperity, but both have
had a fairly good year.
Some of the reports which the Record
lMs received are given here in fulL
Pensacola, December 10.-Bravely emerg-
ing from a series of calamities which have
befallen this city during the last eighteen
months, Pensacola is today in a more
prosperous condition than she ever was in
the past. Like Jacksonville recovered from
the great fire of 1901, this city is recover-
ing from the great storm, and better build-
ings will mark the water front, and much
better facilities will be afforded the ship-
ping interests. The determination on the
part of Pensacola to recover from this
rebuild the city, when it will be larger
and more prosperous than before.
Shipping from this port for the past
year has broken all records, and Pensacola
has added to her territory as a distribut-
ing point to a remari:able degree. So far
as all of West Florida is concerned, there
is everything to indicate that 1906 has
been a prosperous year and that 1907 will
dawn with the. brightest prospects.
Marianna, Dec. 8.-Jackson county has
experienced a very prosperous year, de-
spite the fact that the farmers report that
their crops were not up to the standard.
Cotton is bringing a good price and the
Jackson county farmer has enough housed
to keep him for another year at least.
There has been a tendency on the part
of the farmers in this section of the State
to improve their farms and to work them
more carefully. This is due in large part
to the scarcity of labor, and the necessity
of making what land is tilled yield more
Quincy, Fla., Dec. 8.-The year just clos-
ing finds Quincy and Gadsden county en-
joying an era of great prosperity. The
tobacco industry has made remarkable
strides during the past two years and es-
pecially during 1906. The indications are
that the acreage will be greatly increased
another year. With this and the other
great industries of this section of Florida,
there is every reason to believe that the
coming year will be a most prosperous one.
Tallahassee, Dec. 10.-This county is be-
ginning to pay more attention to the cul-
tivation of tobacco and the indications are
that it is to be a close rival in a few years
to its sister county of Gadsden. Real es-
tate agents claim that there are a great
many inquiries for land in this county
upon which to grow tobacco, and there is
every reason to believe that this industry
is to prosper greatly. In other avenues of
trade and industry the county of Leon has
enjoyed a most prosperous year.
Live Oak, Dec. 12.-Suwannee county
has continued to forge ahead during the
past twelve months and there is nothing
to hinder her future growth on the same
magnificent scale. The farmers of Su-
wannee have not made a full crop of cot-
ton, but they are commanding good prices
for what they have made. Suwannee
grows the best Sea Island cotton in the
State and most of it is sold at home. The
naval stores and lumber industries con-
tinue to thrive. The extension of the va-
rious railroads leading to and from Live
Oak into adjacent counties has had much
to do with the industrial advancement
that this county has made during the year.
great catastrophe has brought to the city Central Florida.
an immense amount of capital and it will Gainesville, Dec. 5.-Alachua county will
require but a few months to more than enter the new year with the greatest feel-
Sing of confidence, the result of the great
advancement that this part of the State
has made during the past several months.
Conditions have been remarkably good in
this city and throughout Alachua county
during the year and the advancement con-
tinues unabated. The naval stores and
lumber industries are potent factors in
this development. Perhaps Alachua coun-
ty has the most varied resources of any
county in this State. Her phosphate
mines, timber,. farming lands and fruit
lands combine to produce great wealth.
One of the greatest advancements made
during the past year has been in the mat-
ter of live stock. The farmers are be-
ginning to see the importance and the
advantage of growing blooded stock and
some of the very best stock in the South
can be seen on some of Alachua's farms.
Ocala, Dec. 10.-Marion county has kept
up the pace of progress during the past
year and there is everything to indicate a
most prosperous year for 1907. There
have been a number of larbe enterprises
established in this county and more will
be in the near future. Marion is one of
the best counties of the State and is in a
most prosperous condition.
Orlando, Dec. 12.-There is not a county
in the State which has met with such re-
markable success in the way of advance-
ment as has Orange County for the past
year. The weather conditions for the past
several years have been good and the or-
ange groves are again coming to the front.
The fruit crop this year is an enormous
one, and in addition to the fruit indutsry,
the growing of vegetables has been a great
factor both here and around Sanford,
which is regarded the best vegetable sec-
tion of the State.
Miami, Dec. 13.-This part of Florida is
more than keeping up the pace of South-
ern development. Great strides have been
made by this city and the county is in
a remarkably good condition. The fruit
and vegetable industries are prospering,
despite the fact that the weather has been
unfavorable at times. Dade county is be-
coming known as the best fruit and vege-
table section of Florida. The building
boom in this city continues and there are
I great many costly buildings projected or
in course of construction.
Tampa, Dec. 10.-No city in the State
has enjoyed a more prosperous year than
has the city of Tampa. The cigar indus-
try has been exceedingly successful and
has been growing constantly. In addition
to this, Tampa is reaching out as a dis-
tributing point and her wholesale trade is4
growing apace. Deep water is promised
and the future for Tampa and South Flor-
ida is bright.
Braidentown, Dec. 5.-Manatee county
has enjoyed a year of great prosperity and
the indications for the coming year are
exceedingly bright. This county is begin-
ning to take advantage of her varied re-
sources more than she has in the past and
the benefits are becoming manifest. The
prospects are bright for another year.
Arcadia, Dec. 10.-DeSoto county is
growing rapidly. She has doubled her pop-
ulat'on during the past five years and her
growth continues. Her citrus fruit indus-
try is now more extensive than that of
any county in this State and her phos-
phate mining, fishing and general farming
add greatly to her wealth. The cattle in-
dustry has prospered during the past year
and in fact this county has advanced all
along the line.
TRIAL OF MR. 0'HAp A AND OTHERS
IS NOW UNDER WAY.
With the following jury, the trial of F.
J. O'Hara and others for conspiracy to
commit peonage is now under way in the
United States court:
The trial jury selected to try the cas
consists of R. L. Warkman, T. R. Webb,
W. C. Cooper, W. O. Jeffrey, C. R. Neck,
L. C. Register, D. R. Silas, Frank Nooney,
G. B. Mobley, G. W. Platt, 0. B. Rogers
and W. S. Dillon.
This case is that-of the United States
against F. J. O'Hara, George F. Burrill, A.
A. Thompson, R. L. Arent, Zach Batten,
and George Harper, charged with conspir-
acy to hold a certain person in a condition
of peonage and with conspiracy to return
certain persons to a condition of peonage.
This cae will be fought hard from the
start. The attorneys for the defense,
Colonel W. M. Toomer, George M. Powell
and S. J. Hillburn, objected to the trial on
the conspiracy charge first, arguing that
they had had an understanding with the
Assistant Attorney General that the con-
spiracy cases would go over, owing to new
points of law having been brought out.
This objection was overruled.
It is understood that the defense has at
least forty witnesses, and the State has a
great mass of testimony to offer.
Following this ease there will be trials
of the same defendants on other charges
similar to the one at present under con-
Georgia Postmaster Seteced.
Valdosta, Dec. 13.-Judge Speer, in the
United States District Court yesterday,
sentenced former Postmaster Gilbert
Meeks, of Nichols, Coffee county, one year
imprisonment, an dto pay a fine of $A68
for embezzling that sum from the post-
office funds. The amount was made good
by Meeks, when the shortage was diseor-
4 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
FMIN AND PUON IN PEONAGE
Pensacola, Dec. 13.-Manager W. S. Har-
Ian and five of the employes of the Jack-
son Lumber Company of Lockhart, Ala.,
convicted last week of conspiracy to ccm-
mit peonage, after, trials consuming near-
ly a month, were sentenced to terms in
the penitentiary and heavy fines by Judge
Charles Swayne in the United States court
today. The six men reached here on a
delayed train just before the noon hour
a1 shortly afterwards were in the court
i6om, where sentence was passed.
Manager Harlan was the first to be
called before the bar and in reply to a
question from the court said that he had
nothing to say as to why sentence should
not be passed. Sentence of eighteen
months in the federal prison at Atlanta
ad a fine of $5,00 in addition was then
Robert Gallagher was the next and he
was sentenced to fifteen months in the
penitentiary and a fine of $1,000, while
Dr. W. Grace, Oscar Sandor, C. E Hug-
gins and C. C. Hilton were sentenced to
thirteen months at Atlanta and fines of
In passing sentence upon Supt. Galla-
gher, who appeared from the testimony to
be deeper implicated than any of the
rest, Judge Swayne advised the quick
tempered Irishman to leave his pistol be-
hind when he weL to the Atlanta prison
and not to slap any of the keepers in the
face if they displeased him.
The court announced in passing sen-
tense that long petitions had been received
asking that the sentences upon Manager
Harlan and Messrs. Huggins and Hilton
be as light as in the opinion of the court
would be consistent with the offense, and
continuing, said that he thought that a
mistake had been made in this court as
well as others in showing too much leni-
He did not intend this as a criticism of
other ecurts, but they made a mistake, he
thought, on the side of mercy, influenced,
perhaps, by material sympathy on the
side of the man who is in trouble.
As soon as sentence was passed, counsel
for the defendants asked that supersedeas
bonds be fixed and that time be set for
ling of the bill of exceptions, as they
intended appealing the cases to the United
States court of appeals. The date was
set for May 15 and the bond of Manager
Harlan fixed at 6,000, while others gave
bond in the sum of $3,000 each.
It was stated that the bill of exceptions
could not be prepared in a shorter length
of time, as the testimony in the cases
will cover nearly 3,000 pages and will be
several weeks before the stenographer can
A Clever Device for a Dip Bucket for Na-
val Stbres Hands.
8. J. Sikes, of this eity, who has given
several valuable inventions to the naval
store industry, has just perfected a dip
bucket, whieh will prove of great value
to the naval stores operators.
The dip bucket is made of galvanized
iron, heavily reinforced where the bail is
attached to each side and is strong and
durable. It is also provided with a lip at
the top to prevent the slashing of spirits
as it is being carried by the dipper. There
are two imes, one six gallons and one
quart and the other of four gallons and
one quart. Mr. Sikes has applied for a
patent and will soo place the bucket on

DESTROYED BY FIRE.
Gainesville, Dec. 11.-The big cypress
mills of John P. Lynch at Gum Root, cn
Newnan's lake, near Fairbanks, together
with 400,000 feet of lumber, were burned
to the ground at an early hour thi morn-
ing, entailing a loss in aggregate of about
$30,000. It is understood that the plant
was insured for something in the neighbor-
hood of $18,000.
At the time of the Are Mr. Lynch was
attending the United States Court in
Jacksonville. He was apprised of the
conflagration, however, and is expected on
the scene today.
The mill was one of the largest and
most modern in the county, cutting cy-
pres exclusively. It was located on the
shores of Newnan's lake with a view to
cheapness sad convenience in access to the
great cypress swamps which surround the
lake, and has been employing a large num-
ber of hamds and cutting a great deal of
lumber since it has been under the per-
sonal management of Mr. Lynch.
Those in Gainesville who are in a posi-
tion to know, state that the mill will be
rebuilt at once.

meeting delivered an address that will no impossibility of individuals or representa-
doubt be of great benefit to the entire tives even of evorporations obtaining the
8tt. of loridaa official recognition of foreign governments
Following the plan mapped out by the
Southern States Immigration Association,
of which Gov. Heyward of South Carolina
is president, the board of trade adopted
resolutions declaring the necessity for the
establishment of a State department of
commerce and immigration, and urging
the State legislature to establish such a
department of the State government. This
action of the board followed the address
of Commissioner Watson, who pointed out
the importance of the establishment of
such departments in every State in the
Upon his arrival in the city Wedfnesday
morning Commissioner Watson was met
at the depot by Qol. Walter P. Corbett
and CoL James L. Taylor, of the sub-
committee of the board of trade com-
mittees on immigration and real estate.
At 11 o'clock he met with the full sub-
committee and went over with the mem-
bers the plans that should be followed to
secure the desired end. This conference
resulted in the committee recommending
the adoption of the resolutions which
were presented and adopted by the board
Cel Corbett's Luapheon.
After the conference, Commissioner Wat-
son became the guest of CoL Corbett at
a luncheon at the Seminole Club, which
proved a most delightfully informal affair.
To meet Commissioner Watson, Col. Cor-
bett invited Messrs. W. W. Cummer, W.
C. Powell, C. E. Garner, George W. Wil-
son, D. U. Fleteher, W. R. Carter, John
G. Christopher, H. H. Buckman, Morgan
V. Gress and Bion H. Barnett.
While there were no speeches, there
was a pleasant eross fire of conversation
that was highly entertaining and inter-
esting, for each of the Jacksonville gen-
tlemen brought out some new point that
was explained by Commissioner Watson in
a way that most favorably impressed all
with Mr. Watson's thorough study and
complete knowledge of the immigration
problem. Seldom has a social function
been more thoroughly enjoyed than Col.
Corbett's luncheon to Commissioner Wat-
At the Board of Trade.
Much to the regret of those who are
vitally interested in the success of the
movement that Commissioner Watson so
ably advocates, the proceedings of the
monthly meeting of the board of trade
were of such a nature that it was about
dark before he could be introduced and
begin his address at the meeting. As a
when they go to those countries to induce
immigrants to come to the United States.
He told of his own experience and de-
tailed how the immigrants that have been
landed in Charleston and those to be
landed there, have been selected and stated
that only 500 out of 1,400 applicants were
Careful Selection Necessary.
Ellis Island, according to Mir. Watson,
should be located on the European side of
the Atlantic and there the selection of
immigrants for the United States should
be made. He said it is no trouble to get
the immigrants of the most desirable class,
but the greatest care has to be exercised
in making the selection, for there are
masses of them not fit to come to this
country who are anxious to do so.
He pointed out the chance Florida has
to secure the inauguration of a direct line
of steamers bringing immigrants to this
port, and how the ships can be loaded with
cargoes of Florida products for the return
voyage. He was confident, he said, that
intelligent effort on the part of an author-
ized representative of the State would re-
sult in establishing a market for Florida
products in European countries.
After being formally introduced by
President Garner to the members of the
board of trade, Commissioner Watson said:
Ag Few Bouquets.
"I feel highly honored to have the op-
portunity to be present among this splen-
did body of men who represent the busi-
ness interests and advancement of this
beautiful and progressive city, and to ad-
dress this board of trade, but there are
other men who are entitled to the honor
more than I, business men who have served
this board for almost a lifetime. I in-
tended being in New York today, but
upon an invitation extended to me by the
Jacksonville Board of Trade to deliver an
address on immigration, I gladly respond
and am glad to be here this evening and
to look into the face of every man who
has been doing something for the better-
ment and advancement of this State, and
Jacksonville, the great Metropolis of Flor-
ida. When I look around me here and see
this great city which was visited by a
most disastrous and destructive fire in
1901, and see the most phenomenal growth
from a bed of ashes into a modern and up-
to-date city, I know that I am face to
face with men who have the quality and
grit that counts.
"When your invitation came, I declined
the New York invitation to come here, for
I believe down in Florida, not only can
you make the State what it ought to be
and can be, but can aid in the up-build-
ing of the Southern States, if we will
only avail ourselves of the opportunity
and now is the time for you to avail your-
selves of the opportunity that is within
your grasp, that will not come again in
a hundred years.

Stop advancing to laborers and you will

ADVANCES MUST STOP.
The Record has repeatedly called the at-
tention of its readers, and especially those
who are engaged in the manufacture of
lumber and naval stores to the danger of
advancing to laborers because of the peon-
age laws and the policy of the government
to enforce these laws vigorously in this
part of the United States.
From the developments of the past sev-
eral weeks it is evident that the prose-
cution of cases of this character have only
commenced and that there are others who
are liable to be brought before the United
States court on this charge. It des not
require any distant steps from the ordi-
nary treatment of laborers to justify the
government in lodging this charge against
an employer. There is but little to this
peonage law, and those who advance
money to their hands are in great danger
of having the charge brought against them.
The very first pre-requisite to the estab-
lishment of a peonage charge is this mat-
ter of indebtedness. That is why we claim
that those who advance money to their
hands are in danger. It is natural for the
manufacturer of naval stores or the saw-
mill man, to tell one of his employes who
has managed to get in debt that he must
work that indebtedness out. If there is
the slightest intimidation along that line,
a case of peonage may be brought. The
necessity, therefore, to cease advancing to
labor ought to be strikingly apparent to
all of those who employ labor to any
And there are other reasons why this
practice should cease. There is not a man
who employs labor to any extent who is
not convinced that the practice is a bad
one. There are other reasons besides the
danger of peonage to confront the em-
ployer who advances money or its equiva-
lent to his laborers. It not only tends to
bring about a general disorganization of
labor, but it generally, if not always, en-
tails a loss. The South has suffered in
many ways because of this practice and
it is time that this policy was being stop-
It may be hard to turn over the new leaf
and stop advances to labor, but the sooner
that this is done the sooner will labor
conditions in the South begin to improve.
The Record does not wish to place it-
self in the attitude of countenancing the
commission of crime even in the defense
of its friends, but we are interested in
seeing an end to this prosecution of peon-
age, not only in the interest of two of the
great industries of the Southern States,
but in the interest of the development of
this entire section. If advances were not
made to laborers there would be no peon-
age charges. The method, therefore, to
stop this prosecution and talk of peonage
must be clear to the minds of all those
who employ laborers in any considerable

GAINESVILLE WILL SHOW HER
Gainesville, Dec. 10.-A movement is
now on foot to establish an annual stock
show here. This show will be given in
connection with the chautauqua. While it
is not actually a part of the chantauqua,
the date has been set that chautauqua
visitors may attend the same, which will
afford an excellent opportunity to show
the stocy products of the county to good
This stock show will last for four days,

and to encourage the horse and cattle in-
terests of the country. Plans will be in-
augurated to erect a pavilion 200 by 100
feet, with all modern conveniences. The
show ring will be sufficiently large so that
stock can be ridden and driven with ease
and grace, showing to best advantage the
stock on display. Seats will be arranged
on either side of the ring, or hippodrome,
and powerful lights installed, in order that
the stock may be exhibited as well at
night as in the day time, and with the

sand, and will afford all an excellent and
uniform opportunity to 'ee.
It is said by stock owners, as well as
others who are regarded as shrewd busi-
ness men, that this show will accomplish
for the individual good and benefit for the
county more 'than double the amount of
money and labor expended in making ex-
hibits at state fairs, where many feel that
they receive very unjust judgment.
It is understood that Major W. R. Thom-
as. one of the largest owners of horses in
the State; G. Henry Davis, another prom-
inent horseman, and others, are now agi-
tating this matter, and that they have the
hearty cooperation of C. WV. Chase. one of

EAST GRAND PARK SALE OF LOTS
WILL BEGIN MONDAY MORNING.
Perhaps no real estate announcement
made in Jacksonvile in months has created
more widespread interest than the an-
nouncement of the sale of East Grand
Park lots, which will begin at the office of
the Jacksonville Development Company
next Monday morning at 9 o'clock.
These lots are so conveniently located
almost at the city limits, within the very
zone of manufacturing development, that
the prices at which they will be offered
will cause them to be in the very highest
possible demand. The Development Com-
pany has already received scores of in-
quiries by mail regarding the property,
asking for plats, etc., and plats of the
property are now on exhibition at the
Jacksonville Development Company's of-
fice, and will be during the remainder of
the week, although, as stated, no lots will
be sold until next Monday morning at the
East Grand Park lots offer an unusually
attractive investment and hundreds of peo-
ple will be quick to grasp it. There are
only 900 lots in the entire sub-division,
and the Development Company confidently
expects to close them all out within a few
days from the time the sale begins.
A big force of men is now at work at
East Grand Park, putting the property in
magnificent shape, and every person who
sees it is pleased with its general attrac-
tiveness, and with its possibilities for the
future, as it is looked upon as being the
"gateway to the city" and the natural and
inevitable manufacturing suburb.

THE NASSAU LINE MAKES A CHANGE
The Norwegian steamship Nicaragua,
Capt. Sareussen, which is now moored at
the Consolidated Grocery Company's pier,
has made her last trip in the -ervice of
the Nassau Steamship Company, and will
leave in a few days for New I leans.
A few days ago A. C. Common and W. A.
Jones, the founder of the's steamship line,
retired from the active management of
the line, and it wts then decided to cancel
the charter with the steamship Nicaragua,
the other members of the line agreeing
that the freight business was not sufficient
to warrant the running of the steamer.
It was learned yesterday from good au-
thority that the Nassau line would be
continued; that several small schooners
and one three-masted schooners had been
cahrtered to bring cocoanuts to Jackson-
ville for the Florida Refining Company and
to load lumber here for Nassau and Cuban
It is believed that the schooners can do
a better business for the company than
the steamer, because they can run into
the smaller ports, load cocoanuts and brint
them to this port cheaper than the steam-
Messrs. Jones and Common still retain
their stock in the Florida Refining Com-
pany, which is a paying enterprise, but
they have retired from active management
of the company and of the steamship line.
Mr. Common has accepted an important
position with the C. B. Van Deman Com-
The schooners to be used on this line
will be the Roberts & Russell, William H.
Albury and others, and it is believed that
the schooner line will be a paying invest-
ment to the company.

Thursday afternoon Mr. Hillman, ac-
companied by three well known business
men of Live Oak, steamed up to the Ara-
gon hotel and when they reported that
they had come all the way from Live Oak,
a distance of seventy-five miles in six
home, they were hooted at, but soon
evinced their hearers that they had real-
ly made the trip.
While the road was not the best in the
world, Mr. Hillman says that he made
the trip without a mishap and intends to
in the future, do all his traveling between
Live Oak and Jacksonville in his Cadillac
machine, not waiting on the railroads.
A good, hard road between Jacksonville
al Live Oak, and from here to other im-
portant cities would be a great thing for
the automobile owners in Florida, and it
was stated yesterday that a movement
was on foot to build such a road between
Jadsonville and Live Oak.

A BIG DEAL.
Organization of Suwannee Naval Stores
Company in Levy County.
Surveyor J. W. Patton has returned to
h's home in Gainesville, says the Sun of
that city, from the vicinity of Janney,
Levy county, where he has been engaged
for the past few days surveying a large
tract of timber land, comprising 7,500
acres, for Epperson & Hardee.
Epperson & Hardee, who have been ex-
tensively engaged in the naval stores bus-
iness in Levy county for some time, it is
reported, have sold an interest in the bus-
iness, which will be considerably enlarged,
to Tiller & Co., Ocal., and the company
will be incorporated under the style of
the Suwannee Naval Stores Company. The
tract which Surveyor Patton has just fin-
ished laying out is said to contain some
of the finest round virgin timber to be
found in the South, and this tract will be
embodied in the new charter.
It is said that the Suwannee Company
will at once begin operations in the matter
of cutting new boxes and opening this
tract, which means a great commercial
gain for that section of the county.

twice are looking into these matte:.s is con-
stantly uncovering new cases that are
startling in character, but it is the policy
of the administration to continue these
investigations and prosecutions until a
proper respect for the property rights of
-he government and a regard for the law
are established throughout those sections
of the oqintry in which such laws apply.
S"The importance of our great public do-
main to the people cannot be overestimat-
ed. It is the nations heritage, and every
available rod thereof should be regarded as
peredly dedicated to the purpose of pro-
viding hops .for the homeless. The laws
enacted foi the protection of the lands
should therefore be rigidly enforced, and
this has been the cardinal principal of my
"ft ia to be regretted, however, that the
aorts made to release it trom the grip of
it despoilers have been met by every em-
arrssment that human ingenuity could
devise; powerful influences have been con-
erned, and have not hesitated to ag-
ressivetl exert every agency that could
be e mYmanded to weaken the hand of the
hr; even local land office official have
beta subservient to such influences, and
the punishment imposed by the courts has,
in many cases, been so conspicuously in-
adequate as to encourage rather than de-
ter violations of the law.
"Whether this official stagnation is due
in any degree to lheal political influences
to which these officials are more or less
indebted for their commissions and the
retention of their positions is not impor-
tant to discuss at this time, it being suf-
fcient to state that it is a deplorable fact
that such action, or rather inaction, is
bringing reproach upon the public service,
besides enhancing the difficulties which be-
set the administration in any efforts that
it may make to rescue the public domain
from serious peril.
"In the discharge of my duty under the
law I have proceeded without the slightest
prejudice for or against any person or
persons interested. In such efforts as have
been made to protect the service under my
supervision from the ravages of inordi-
nate greed, I have not considered either the
station or the power of the guilty.
"Apparently they are all on the same
footing; in my judgment, however, the
higher the offender the greater the crime
against society and' law, because of the
force and influence of the higher example.

VERDICT IN PEONAGE CASES.
Three Foremen Convicted and Five Ex-
Pensacola, Dec. 8.-At 11:30 o'clock to-
night. after being out for more than four
hours, the jury returned and presented a
verdict in the celebrated case of W. S.
Harlan, et. al., charged with conspiracy to
commit rponage, which has been on trial
in the United States Court for the past
twelve days. Manager Harlan and seven
foremen and superintendents were tried
upon this general indictment of the grand
jury and five were acquitted, the three
convicted being Me-srs. Gallagher, Grace
and Sandor, the verdict being a compro-
mise as to Manager Harlan.
The case came to a close, so far as the
taking of testimony was concerned, late
last night, Manager W. S. Harlan being
the last witness to be examined. His tes-
timony was in rebuttal of the Statements
made by Operator Satterwaite to the ef-
fect that witness had heard conversation
between Harlan and Dr. Grace in which
Ha.lan had told Grace to go after the
foreigner Mihaly and when he was cap-
tured to give him a bad scare and per-
haps it would stop some of the others
from leaving. This was emphatically de-
nied by Manager Harlan, who said that he
had no recollection of ever having a con-
versation with Dr. Grace regarding the
foreigner and certainly not to give in-
structions to them of such nature.
This morning the arguments began, As-
sistant District Attorney Reese opening
for the government. The court limited the
prosecution and defense to three hours
each, and Attorney Reese consumed about
an hour of his time in the opening ad-
dress to the jury, and was followed by
Chief Counsel Flournoy.
This afternoon Judge Reee, who was
called on the case recently, delivered one
of the most powerful arguments for the
defense heard in the court room during the
District Attorney Shepard had the clos-
ing argument of the day, and his speech
was an excellent effort, comprehensively
detailing the case and recalling the princi-
pal points of the testimony for the gov-
At 5 o'clock Judge Swayne charged the
jury. His charge was a lengthy one and
consumed nearly an hour. In it he ex-
plained peonage and what constituted con-
spiracy to commit peonage, the offense
with which the men are charged. The case
then was placed in the hands of the jury
and an adjournment taken for supper. At
7 o'clock the jury returned to the court
room and began the consideration of a ver-
dict in the ease, coming to a decision at
