THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD VOICES THE SENTI
MENTS OF SEVERAL OF ITS CORRESPONDENTS IN REFER-
ENCE TO A DEMAND FOR BETTER LAWS TO PROTECT THOSE
/HO ARE ALMOST FORCED TO ADVANCE TO LABOR. THERE
IS HOT THE SLIGHTEST DOUBT THAT THE LAWS IN THIS
STATE IN REFERENCE TO DEBT ARE ENTIRELY TOO LAX
AND THAT THIS LAXITY IS HAVING A DETRIMENTAL EF-
FECT ON THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF FLORIDA. WHILE
THE PROBLEM IS A DIFFICULT ONE, MEMBERS OF THE NEXT
LEGISLATURE OUGHT TO BE DEVOTING SOME TIME TO A
STUDY OF THE SITUATION IN THE INTERESTS OF THE MA-
TERIAL PROSPERITY OF THEIR STATE. THE RECORD WILL
DISCUSS THIS ISSUE FROM TIME TO TIME AND CALLS
UPON ALL THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED FOR AN EXCHANGE

F J. O'Hara and Others Are Acquitted of
Only seventeen minutes was necessary
for the jury in the United States (Crcuit
murt in this city to return a verdict of
"not guilty" in the ease of conspiracy to
Scommit peonage lodged against Messrs.
F. J. O'Hara, Robert L. Arent, George F.
Burrill, A. A. Thompson. George L Har-
per ad Zach Batten.
This verdict was rendered Monday night
after the ease had occupied the attention
of the United States Circuit Court for
nearly two weeks. The verdict closed
one of the most memorable trials in the
history of the court in which the case
This case was first inaugurated early
last summer, after several government
agents had scoured the vicinity in search
of testimony and after they had received
and accepted as authentic statements by
some of the foreign element who were
sent here to work at the mill and naval
stores farm of Hodges & O'Hara at Buf-
falo Bluff, in this State.
The reading public of Florida is famil-
iar with this case. It first had its incep-
tion when an Associated Press dispatch to
the press of the United States conveyed
the intelligence that a "lady in black" had
appealed to the President and the attor-
ney-general, stating that peonage and
slavery in their worst forms existed in
When the matter was first called to the
attention of Clerk of the Court Locke, a
brother of Judge Iocke, who also oceu-
pies the position of United States Court
Commissioner, there was testimony from
the alleged peons, whinh was strong
enough to hold the defendants. From this
the government agents started a vigorous
campaign to secure testimony against the
defendants. Detectives wl-e ent hera Sl
from the cherestes uf their reports the
government at Washington decided to as-
aumau an aggressive attitude and the As-
sistant Attorney General was sent to Flor-
ida to take charge of the peonage cases.
The trial commenced two weeks ago and
Norfolk, Dec. 25.-Direct steamship
transportation between European ports
and Norfolk and the Jamestown exposi-
tion during the period of that celebration
is the welcome news that has recently
been received by officials of the exposition
in Norfolk. The authority of this state-
ment is the Berliner Tageblatt, one of
the leading newspapers of Germany, a
copy of which was sent to the exposition
by C. W. Kohlsatt, commissioner general
of the exposition, who is now in Europe
in the interests of the ter-centenniaL
As a result of several conferences be-
tween Mr. Kohlseat and officials of the
trans-Atlantic lines, it is reported that it
is very probable that both the German-
occupied the attention of the court for
over a week. During that time there were
a great many witnesses heard, the gov-
ernment leaving not a pebble unturned in
its efforts to convict the defendants. The
testimony which the government present-
ed was in the main from the alleged peons.
Some of them testified to having been
restrained from their liberty by order of
Mr. O'Hara and the other defendants, bru-
tally beat, kept without acceptable food
and otherwise maltreated. Testimony was
presented by the government to show that
the men had been brought back to the
camps at the point of pistols and guarded
there by a man who carried a shotgun.
To refute all this testimony adduced by
the government there were brought to
Jacksonville some of the most reputable
men of the State, who decidedly refuted
that testimony and who established be-
yond a doubt the innocence of the parties
Colonel W. M. Toomer, George M. Pow-
ell of this city and H. J. Hilburn, of Pa-
latka, who had the case in charge for the
defense, were thorough and successful in
refuting every essential point on the part
of the government witnesses. The charge
of Judge Locke was explicit, but abso-
lutely fair and impartial.
When the jury took the case last Mon-
day night at 6:12 p. m. it was the general
belief that the verdict would be "not guil-
ty." In just seventeen minutes from the
time that the jury retired there came the
verdict, exonerating all the defendants.
Some of the cases against the defend-
ants have been nolle pressed, but there
are still several other indictments. On
these indictments the government attor-
neys have decreed that the defendants
must stand trial.
A speail venire of twenty-five has been
summoned and the other cases will be call-
ed on next Wednesday. As practically the
same evidence from the same source will
be depended upon to establish the case for
the government, the attorneys for the de-
fense are confident of an acquittal
Lloyd steamship companies will put on
steamers direct from European ports and
the Jamestown exposition piers, in Hamp-
ton Roads, next year.
The statement has been made that if
these steamship lines place their steamers
on the exposition route, it will be such a
fine investment and will open up so much
trans-Atlantic traffic that they will never
be taken off, but remain to add to the
excellent transportation facilities that
Norfolk already has.
Not only will these lines from Europe
to Norfolk and the exposition add to the
popularity of the ter-centennial and swell
the foreign attendance, but it will become
a permanent institution and advance the
interests of the entire South, of which
Norfolk is today the commercial gateway.

The Usual Scarcity of Labor Exists at this
Operators who have been in the city
during the present week state that there
is the greatest scarcity of labor at this
time, due from the general disorganization
of labor which is usually brought about
at the holiday season.
One of the operators who has a large
place at Duval, in this county, is practi-
cally without help, and it is evident from
his remarks that it will be some time be-
fore he can secure men with which to
continue operations. To a representative
of the Record this gentleman said:
"This is a time of the year when It is
almost impossible to secure help. I find
this morning that at my place there is
hardly a corporal's guard. I am-located at
Duval, and it is natural that if anyone
is to suff er, am the man, owing to the
proximity of my place to Jacksonville.
But I have heard from some of the others
from other parts of the State, and it is
evident that there will be a great deal of
trouble in getting the men together
engaged in manufacturing naval stores,
have taken advantage of the excursion
rates and have visited their homes or gone
to other localities, leaving debts behind
them and generally affecting the indus-
tries with which they have been engaged.
Naval stores operators are inrlied to
believe that a great many of the negroes
who have thus left their places will not
return. It is said by some of them that
the recruiting evil has been particularly
felt just at this time, and that some of the
naval stores operators have been the chief
movers in the effort to entice laborers to
leave or stay away from other eampa.
Some have been forced to do this in self
defense, while there are others who have
merely continued a practice which they
have been pursuing for years.
It will be some time before things as-
sume a normal state. In the meantime the
naval stores industry is to suffer neatly.

MATTRESS FACTORY DAMAGED BY
Tipping's mattress factory, near the cor-
ner of Davis and State streets, was con-
siderably damaged by fire at an early
hour Saturday morning.
The first alarm was turned in from Box
57 and called the apparatus from the West
Adams street and Main street stations
to the scene.
When Chief Haney arrived at the fire it
looked so threatening that he immediately
sent in a general alarm, calling out the
Several streams of water were soon pour-
ing into the burning building, and after
some hard work on the part of the firemen
the fire was gotten under control.
Just how the fire originated is a mys-
tery to Chief Haney and Second Assist-
ant Chief Zoller, who was one of the
first to arrive, he having gone to the fire
on the hook and ladder from the West
Adams street station.
The building, which his of brick, was
damaged very slightly on the outside,
owing to the fire being confined entirely
to the interior.
When the remen arrived a large pile of
excelsior, used for manufacturing cheap
mattresses, was ablaze and for a while
the blaze looked serious, but the prompt-
ness of the firemen in getting several
streams of water into the building made it
impossible for the flames to spread.
The mattress factory is on the same lo-
cation where the fiber factory which start-
ed the great fire of 1901 formerly stood,
and there were several firemen who fought
the fire yesterday morning who answered
that memorable alarm of May 3, 1901.
Chief Haney was quick to act in send-
ing in the general alarm, and had the fire
well under control before it had had op-
portunity to spread.

Washington, was wrecked at Moncrief, five

News of the wreck was sent to the city
as quickly as possible and Dr. Leill, Dr.
Durkee, Dr. Mills and others hurried to
the scene to treat the injured. Temporary
treatment was administered on the scene
and the injured engineer and express mes-
sengers were brought into the city.
None of the passengers were injured.

of medical attention and his family in Sa-

likely that the county authorities will
also endeavor to place the responsibility.

BOARD OF TRADE WILL ENHDAVOR
TO SOLVE FREIGHT CONGESTION
(From the Florida Times-Union.)
Adopting resolutions that practically de-
mand that the railroad companies in Flor-
ida bring their business to a "state of
modern effectiveness," continuing the spe-
cial committee, with plenary powers to act
and instructions to employ T.1 clerical
and legal aid necessary to solve the con-
gestion problem, appointing a sub-commit-
tee from the general committee to meet
every day and take up all written com-
plaints that may be handed in, and open-
ing negotiations looking to securing a
special agent to investigate all complaints
and act for their relief; that is a summary
of the important business transacted by
the Jacksonville Board of Trade Thurs-
The board of trade went formally on
record as determined to solve this prob-
lem. The making of the relief committee
into a permanent organization and that
body appointing a sub-committee to hold
daily sessions, means that active work is
to begin in earnest an that the time for
mere resolutions and requests made on the
railroads for better service has ended. If
necessary, the law will be invoked and the
matter fought out in the courts.
The meeting yesterday was largely at-
tended and the resolutions, which are here-
with printed in full, were unanimously
adopted. The resolutions follow:
Resolutions as Adopted.
Jacksonville, Fla., Dec. 21, 1906.-To the
president and members of the Jacksonville
Board of Trade. Gentlemen-Your spec-
ial committee appointed at last meeting
to consider the present transportation sit-
uation, and the resolution introduced by
Mr. Stockton, as follows:
"Resolved, That the board of trade urge
the honorable Napoleon B. Browvard, gov-
ernor of the State of Florida and the
servant of all the people, to immediately
call an extra session of the Florida legis-
lature to consider and enact legislation
needed to give the people relief, and, if
necessary, urge the legislature to pass a
constitutional amendment to bei lmme-
diately submitted to the people for their
ratification, authorizing the appointment
of a board of appraisers to appraise the
railroad properties of the State, and fur-
ther pass necessary legislation to provide
ways and means to purchase and take over
all the railroads within the State of Flor-
ida and operate them for the benefit of
the people and thereby give the people re-
lief, not only from excessive freights,
made necessary to pay interest on over-
isesue of watered stocks and bonds, not-
withstanding the railroads have received
land grants in value more than sufficient
to construct and equip said railroads," beg
leave to report that they have carefully
considered the resolution and in their
opinion deem it unwise and inexpedient to
recommend its adoption.
Sustainin Heavy Loss.
Your committee recognizes and the rail-
roads admit that the fruit growers, saw-
mills, naval stores, phosphate and other
producers and shippers in the State are
daily sustaining a heavy loss by means of
the inability of the management of the
railroads to furnish cars and expedite the
forwarding of perishable shipments, that
the receiving and shipping of freight from
different points in and out of the State
are greatly retarded, and the shippers
and patrons damaged in business by the
unusual delay in placing ars for loading
and unloading, that the terminals of the
railroads are now inadequate, that road-
beds are not in good condition, that the
rolling stock is not active because of in-
sufficient power, that starting from Jack-
sonville and returning through the State
there are daily complaints against the
railroads, that these complaints are se-
rious and that they are based on facts,
that the condition of the State from the
standpoint of a shipper or receiver cf
goods by railroad is becoming unbearable,
that bankruptcy now faces many individ-
uals, firms and corporations by reaso-
thereof, that the resolutions referred to
by your committee should be a warning to
the railroads what they may expect if
the rights of the people of this State are
not respected, that we, your committee,
after giving the matter careful investiga-
tion, and after interviewing the railroad
officials in this city, are of the opinion
that the help in the offices and yards of
railroads in this city is not satisfactory
and that in a great many instances the
employes are not as efficient as they
should be, that while the heads of the
different departments are men of charae-
ter and ability, and are willing to do all
in their power, they are unable to im-
prove the situation for lack of motive
power, and satisfactory help, and we ther-
fore recommend the passage of the follow-
Change of System.
"Resolved, That the board of trade of
Jacksonville, recognizing that the railroad
business of this State and city is now be-
ing conducted in a manner calculated to
injure, damage and most seriously cripple
the commerce of the State and city, do
hereby in the name of the people of
Florida appeal to the railroads of the State
to so change their systems and manage-
inent as to give prompt and iinunedinte
relieg. That it is the belief of the board
that the needed relief cannot be had un-
less the officials of the railroads in the
State are clothed z it full powers to
bring their road and its business to a
state of modern effectiveness.
And further, that a copy of the report
of this committee be sent to the railroad
commission of Florida, with a statement
that this board of trade holds itself in
readiness to co-operate with it and the
railroads in the effort to bring about a
better railroad service.
This resolution is offered by your com-
mittee after an exhaustive examination of
the complaints against the railroads sub-
mitted by shippers and receivers of freight
and after giving a full and careful hearing
to all the railroad managers, and superin-
tendents of railroads, who have availed
themselves of the opportunity of being
heard offered by your committee.
Railroads Will Act.
Your committee is assured by the man-
agement of the railroads that the present
deplorable condition in the local yards
will be looked into at once and every ef-
fort made to make the service more effi-
cient. The management of the Atlantic
Coast Line assures your committee that
a large part of the trouble with them has
been the lack of locomotives, and that
anticipating the increased demand for ser-
vice in Florida, the necessary locomotives
were ordered many months in advance;
that the locomotives then ordered were
not delivered when most needed, but that
they are now being delivered.
With these locomotives delivered, the
general manager and general superintend-
ent of this road both think that the sit-

improving their office and yard force.
Your committee further finds that the
railroads throughout the United States
are unable to handle the enormous busi-
ness oeffred them and that the conditions
in Florida and especially Jacksonville are
no worse (and in some cases probably
much better) than in other sections of the
Your committee wishes to extend its
thanks to all who have furnished it with
information, and to the railroad officials
who have appeared before it.
(Signed)-H. H. Richardson, chairman;
W. A. Bours, W. W. Cummer, Charles H.
Mann, G. R. DeSaussure, George W. Har-
ris, Benj. F. Bowen.
Are Unanimously Adopted.
These resolutions, submitted by Chair-
man H. H. Richardson, together with a
report on the work that had been done
by the railroads, were adopted unanimous-
ly by those present at the meeting.
Then came the suggestion that the prod-
ding be kept up, and that no stone be left
unturned that would tend to help in solv-
ing the problem. Judge John W. Dodge
moved that the general committee be con-
tinued, and this was promptly seconded.
Then came the suggestions that this
committee, if it was to be a permanent
organization, be given plenary powers to
act, that it be instructed to employ such
clerical and legal aid as might be found
necessary, and that reports be made to
the board of trade at such times as the
committee deemed advisable.
These suggestions were readily accepted
by the maker of the motion and its sec-
ond, and the motion was carried without
a dissenting vote.
Immediately the general committee, at
the call of Chairman H. H. Richardson,
went into special session.
A motion was made that a sub-commit-
tee be appointed to meet daily, of which
sub-committee Mr. Richardson should also
be chairman. This was carried, and Mr.
Richardson appointed to act with him on
this committee Messrs. W. A. Bours, Ben-
jamin F. Bowen and George W. Haines.
It was then decided to employ the ser-
vices of a special agent whose sole busi-
ness it should be to investigate all specific
complaints, seek a remedy and apply, and
devote his entire time to the work of per-
manently solving this problem. Negotia-
tions were at once begun with a gentleman
well fitted to carry on this work, and it is
expected that announcement of his accept-
ance can be made today.
The committee then mapped out the
plans of action, which may be briefly sum-
marized as follows:
Pla se Campaivg
The sub-committee will meet daily at
moon, at the board of trade rooms to take
up such specific complaints as may be
made to them, in writing, by shippers and
receivers of freight.
A general cal Ishould be issued, through
the local press, to all receivers and ship-
pers of freight, asking them to co-operate
with the committee and to send in to this
committee such complains as they had to
make, these complaints to be submitted
At the daily sessions the reports of the
special agent will be made as to cases
investigated, and action determined upon.
The general committee will assemble at
least once each week, and aid the sub-
committee in its work in any way possi-
East Coast Praised.
During the discussion of the railroad
question in Florida, Major J. 8. Fairhead
stated that honor should be paid to whom
honor was due, and that special mention
should be made o fthe splendid service of
the Florida East Coast Railway Company.
The efforts to solve the congestion prob-
lem, he stated, had given the impression
to the world that the people of Florida
did not know how to operate a railroad
But the record made by the Florida East
Coast railway, he said, was a splendid one,
and that against this road there was no
Personally, he stated, that he had al-
ways received cars in from twenty-four to
thirty-six hours after they had been or-
dered by him, and that when these cars
were loaded, the Florida East Coast rail-
way promptly carried them to the termi-
nals designated. Then, and then only,
did the trouble begin.
The fact that such an admirable and
wholly satisfactory service could be put
on by this road, he argued, proved beyond
a doubt that the other roads could do the
same, if they would put the right men on
and furnish the right men with the proper
facilities. This tribute to the East Coast
railway he said, he felt was due, lest, in
a general attack on Florida railroads the
one notable exception should be forgotten
and go without the credit that it deserved.
Telegram Is Received.
During the time that the general com-
mittee was in session, a telegram was re-
ceived stating that the Atlantic Coast
Line railroad had now thirteen new freight
engines in Florida, in addition to nine
switch engines. All of these had been as-
signed to the Third division, of which
Jacksonville is the headquarters, and
would be ready to assist in moving cars
It was also stated that Mr. Robinson
had been put on duty here as assistant
agent, with instructions to devote his en-
tire energies to giving information to
shippers and receivers about cars, and
to investigate and aid in solving the con-
Before adjournment the committee de-
cided to, in its repo.- at all times, "call
a spade a spade." There will be no cover-
ing up of faults whatever, and the blame
will be placed where the committee finds
Publicity will be resorted to and any
special troubles encountered, or any fail-
ure of the roads to assist the committee
will be reported to the general public
through the local press.
When adjournment was finally taken,
every member felt that a great step had
been made toward solving the problem of
freight congestion here, and it is generally
believed that the next few weeks will find
conditions here greatly relieved. The
railroads have promised their assistance,
and the committee believes that it will be

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Those domen new locomotives of the At-
lantic Coast Line will begi ato make things
move pretty soon.-Tampa Tribune.
We are not alone with our troubles
about the delays of railroad transporta-
tion. Similar complaints come from other
States, and nearly everywhere there seems
to be a congestion of traffic. The rail-
roads haven't caught up with the pros-
perity of the country, but doubtless all of
them are doing their best. "Don't shoot
the pianist-he's doing his best,' 'was the
sign in big letters over the piano-player
in an Arizona dance hall while he thumped
the ivories for dear life. For a similar
reason it might be well for us to curb our
wrath and refrain from tearing up the rail-
roads of Florida.-Live Oak Democrat.
Complaints of delayed trains are of ev-
ery day occurrence, and these complaints
will continue until more railroads are built
to handle the enormous traffic now offer-
ing. Never in its history has the Sduth
especially been so prosperous, and with
it the demand for wares of all kinds in-
creased and the increase has been so heavy
that the limited rail lines of the South
have not been able to handle the vast
quantities of goods offered for transporta-
tion. What the South needs is more rail-
roads to handle the ever increasing busi-
Florida is not the only State that is
suffering from freight congestion. There
is scarcely a State in the South, North
Sor West that is not calling for relief. In
the south it is only that business is in-
terfered with. In the North and West
it is the foodstuffs of the nation and the
fuel to keep millions of people from freez-
ing to death that are demanded at the
hands of the railroads. At the beginning
of winter in a prairie country dependent
upon coal for fuel, and that coal mined
hundreds of miles away, the situation is
alarming. Appeals for help to the presi-
dent, members of congress and others in
authority are pouring in. Some of the
railroads are refusing to handle any
freight except live stock and perishable
goods, and the outlook is grave.-Arcadia
The Index is not an apologist for bad
railroad service, but it is not confined to
Florida The unprecedented prosperity
of the country has prevented even the
transportation lines keeping up with it.
Certainly they want to do the business.
It's "money in their pockets." The manu-
facturing enterprises of the country-the
ear and locomotive works-are busy day
and night, and yet can't keep up with
their orders. When slow schedules are
put on the people complain, when fast ones
are tried and accidents result, they are
cussed. It's a case of "be damned if you
do and be damned if you don't." "When
a business house has poured millions into
the hands of the people, it is well to con-
sider if the tree that bears the golden
fruit should be ruthlessly destroyed."
This, from a State exchange, is ust the
position the people are up against-wheth-
er to destroy the various enterprises-
"corporations," if you please-that have
made Florida prosperous, or be patient and
let them catch up with the prosperity they
have been instrumental in giving us.
Now, watch some jealous advocate cry
out, "corporation hireling."-Lake City
FORESTRY RESERVE PLANS AP-
Washington, Dec. 27-Gifford Pinchot,
chief of the forest service, today ap-
proved the rough draft of a report to be
submitted to the secretary of agriculture,
inlating to the four million acres of land
in the Indian Territory, whose withdrawal
for forest reserve purposes brought about
both an investigation and criticism of the
secretaries of the interior and agriculture.
The report will be in defense of the
withdrawal of the lands in question lo-
cated ni the Choctaw and Cherokee na-
tions in the Indian Territory, and will
show first, that the proposed forestry
reserve was asked for primarily by the
Indians themselves and other local people;
second, that the maintenance of a forest
on the proposed area will furnish a much-
needed continuous supply of timber and
wood for local use, and also prevent dis-
astrous floods along a thousand miles of
the Red River running through Texas, Ar-
kansas and Louisiana, where immense
sums of money are now being expended for
levees by local people and the government;
third, that the forest reserve would not
take up all the residue of landn after
allotments to the Indians. The report
will further insist that the secretary of
the interior's action in temporarily sub-
pending allotments was not only within
his right, but he would have been remiss
had he done otherwise.
A recommendation will be made to the
secretary of agriculture, who will un-
doubtedly transmit the same to the sec-
retary of the interior, that the area ofrgi-
nally withdrawn, some four million acres,
can be properly reduced to half the size
by leaving out the part in the Cherokee
nation, and all the lands within twenty
miles of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas
railway in the Choctaw nation. This will
show that considerably more than half of
the reduced area withdrawn for forest
purposes is valuable for agriculture and
can be allotted in the near future after
examination to determine its arable char-
SOUTHERN PACIFIC STRIKE.
Officials Declare That the Backbone Is
El Paso, Tex., Dec. 27.-The Southern
Pacific officials here declared the firemen's
strike was virtually broken today. All
trains are arriving practically on time and
freight is being accepted. The firemen de-
clare that they can and will tie up the
Harriman system completely. Their chair-
man in this district said:
"We have assurance of support from the
Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, the
Order of Railway Conductors and the
Order of Railway Telegraphers. The rail-
road is handling practically no freight."
Moving the Trains.
New Orleans, Dec. 27.-Except for live
stock and perishable freight, the Southern
Pacific railroad tonight announced that
the company today moved its freight
trains on the Louisiana division without
any difficulty. No attempt was made
to handle the two excepted classes of
freight. Railroad officials said that the
strike was no longer felt as a serious in-
convenience by the railroad.

8 THE WEEKLY INDUbTarAL RECORD.
Bradstreet Reports Phenomenal Busi-
ness for 1906 and Bright
Prospects for 1907.
New York, Dec. 26.-Nineteen hundred
and six was a very remarkable year. And
yet this characterization appears incom-
plete in view of the fact that old records
were retired and new ones set up, in the
disproving of old proverbs, and the pre-
dictions that 1905 was so favorable that
better results were hardly to be expected
the following year. Not the least remark-
able feature, too, was the fact that the
apparent drawbacks--and there were a
number-did not retard the onward move-
ment, and the course of events, viewed
from the vantage ground of achieved re-
sults, was a grand triumphant march of
Concisely stated, 1906 saw very favor-
able crop yields; a record output of ce-
reals; close to highest yields and record
values of other farm products; unpre-
cedented activity in all kinds of mining
except coal; enormous outputs of precious
metals; land speculation assumed enor-
mous proportions, building activity sur-
passing the wonderful record of 1905; un-
precedented totals of foreign trade; an un-
paralleled immigration; surpassing totals
of clearings and railway earnings; employ-
ment active and labor scarce as never be-
fore; a record volume of the circulating
medium-money-proving altogether in-
adequate for business purposes, and fi-
nally, and what is, perhaps, the most re-
markable development of all, the reach-
ing, in a time of profound world's peace,
of a war-time level of prices of commodi-
ties without the slightest apparent effect
upon demand, which, throughout the year,
pressed hotly upon the supply and caused
from the beginning of the year to its close
general complaints of the backward de-
liveries of goods. After even a cursory
review of the results, indeed, one is im-
pressed with the inadequacy of adjectives
to give full expression to the wonderful
development of the year now drawing to a
Of the drawbacks, interruptions, and
what, in some years, would have proved to
have been absolute checks to progress,
there were several well deserving of men-
tion. Mild winter weather has not usually
been associated in the past with present
or future good trade or crops, and yet the
country had the mildest winter in years.
Later on in the year, the greatest city on
the western coast was leveled by earth-
quake and fire, a shock to financial circles
which might have been fatal in an ordi-
nary year. Legislation of a somewhat rad-
ical character affecting railroads and
large corporations, with numerous prose-
cutions of companies and individuals, was
a marked feature resulting from the pre-
vious year's moral agitation and uplift
in State and nation, without any, appar-
ently, other than beneficial effects to the
country at large. Tight money at home
and abroad put a strain upon general bus-
iness which resulted in strikingly little
friction, judging from failure returns, the
most noticeable effect being a feeling of
conservatism which proved to be beneficial.
Congressional and state elections had little
effect, the general conclusion being that
the people were "too busy to talk poli-
tics. Transportation c congestion of the
acutest kind, resulting in loss of trade and
some actual suffering where fuel supplies
were concerned, perhaps arrested, but cer-
tainly did not check, progress. Strikes
were numerous but, except in the coal,
molders' and printing trades, not of long
duration, owing to a spirit of compromise
and yielding on the part of employers,
who realized that the cost as well as the
country's standard of living justified larger
Some occurrences which made the year
an especially notable one, the final effects
of which have not yet been worked out,
were the. immense speculation in and ad-
vance of land values, which, with the
building activity in some sections, was
claimed to be dangerous to continued
prosperity. High money gave a check to
this as it also did to the enormous volume
of speculation in mining shares, which di-
verted attention from other markets, nota-
bly grain and stocks, and to a certain ex-
tent, from cotton, though the latter showed
great activity throughout the year.
The combined production of all cereals
was the largest ever known, chiefly be-
cause of the immense corn yield. The
values of all cereals and of all farm prod-
ucts are alike the greatest ever reported.
In the financial records, the frequency of
increases, approximately 10 to 12 per cent.,
is probably a real guide to the increase of
general business over 1905. In the sta-
tistics of industrial output, especially of
the iron trade, the gains are not far be-
low the above percentages. Another guide
to the character of the year's business is
to be had ni the gain in stock sales and
the loss in bond sales, indicating that, with
prosperous trade, a greater disposition to
be a partner rather than a creditor was
manifested. Finally, the fact that the de-
icreases shown are largely confined to
failures and failure liabilities is in a high
degree indicative of the fact that the vast-
ly enlarged outputs, the movement of
products and the volume of sales in 1906
were conducted with less friction than in
1905, thus constituting a tribute to the
essential soundness of the year's busi-
Mild winters have been proverbially un-
favorable to crops and trade, yet, right at
its beginning, the year suffered this al-
leged drawback with little effect. Lack
of snow covering fo rwheat, and autumn
mildness in January, led to fears of crop
damage, while congesting stocks of winter
goods. Heavy apparel suffered in demand,
coal was inactive, and rubber footwear
neglected; but the good effects of the mild
season outweighed the bad. Building ope-
rations continued on an unprecedented
scale during an ordinarily closed season,
and railway operations experienced little
interference. Manufacturing was active,
and stock speculation made new high price
levels. In February, retail trade and col-
lections were interfered with early by
mild weather, lumbering was restricted,
cotton holding at the South was an ad-
ditional drawback, coal was weak, high
summer prices for ice were indicated and
the egg market collapsed under weight of
fresh supplies. Sacrifice sales of winter
clothing and an earlier than usual opening
of spring trade were features. The first
hurtful winter storm in March damaged
Southern fruits and vegetables, but heavy

anowa and rains gave ample moisture to
winter wheat as the growing season began.
A large spring trade was done the
country over, heavy sales of fertilizers in-
dicated an increased cotton area, and in-
dustry was active, with numerous wage
advances. April opened with a coal strike
involving 400,000 men, the anthracite and
western bituminous fields shutting down,
but first crop reports showed little dam-
age to winter wheat, and the low death
rate throughout the country disproved the
"green Christmas and fat churchyard"
proverb. Corn and cotton planting started
late but made up lost time. Earthquake
and fire ruined San Franciseo-April 18-21
-destroyed $360,000,000 in property and
caused a break in stock prices. May saw
the close of the coal strike, the ending of
a wheat deal at Chicago, after the highest
prices of the year were touched, and
heavy liquidation in stocks, while fire-
insurance troubles plagued San Francisco,
and cold weather injured fruits and vege-
tables, causing much replating of cotton.
Trade, retail and jobbing, was active,
plenty of moisture helped wheat, San
Francisco's banks opened May 23, after
over a month's shut-down; purchase of
supplies for that city benefited trade in
other places, and steel rails were freely
bought for 1907 delivery. Corn planting
was delayed, oats were hurt in the west,
and it was too cool and dry for cotton.
In June, wholesale trade was seasonably
quiet, business for fall was good, building
showed record activity, though lumber
weakened for a while, and wages of New
England's cotton-mill hands advanced.
Early crop reports were poor but improved
later. Cotton showed an nicreased acre-
age and good condition. Warnings came
of tight money in the second half of the
year and some good authorities were pes-
simistic as to its effect on trade.
July statistics showed a record half year
in domestic business, and an unprecedent-
ed fiscal year's foreign trade, record clear-
ings for six months, few failures and small
liabilities. Cotton and wheat prices de-
clined on good crop prospects, stocks were
liquidated, trade and industry continued
active, midsummer shutdowns were fewer
and shorter than usual, with fall orders
good. In August, free marketing of win-
ter wheat brought the lowest prices in
four years, but iron and steel and cotton
goods were active and advancing, while
raw, cotton declined. Rains helped corn
and hurt wheat in shock, but the latter
rallied on lighter movement and pobr
Russian reports. September showed more
mnap to trade, very high money rates,
rapid advances in commodities, active trade
and industry, a record corn crop gathered
free fro damage, with cotton goods ad-
vancing. At the end a severe gulf storm
destroyed property on that coast and hurt
cotton inland. October saw an immense
advance in cotton prices-140 points on
spots and 166 points on futures-in ten
days; copper reached the highest price in
twenty-six years, cool weather helped
trade, and a record month's business was
done. Car congestion became acute, and
reports came of damage to harvested grain
and growing cotton-the latter by frost.
Storms at harvest hurt tobacco south and
west and hurt cotton badly in the South
Atlantic States. November saw only a
slight lull in trade before election day,
iron and steel continued to advance despite
record production and large imports and
ear congestion hampered all lines, but
business was active and a large area went
into winter wheat. Preparations for a
record holiday trade were made at whole-
sale, later justified by an early and heavy
demand. In December, car shortage af-
fected trade and caused suffering in the
Northwest. The increased wheat area en-
tered the winter in a condition equal to
1905. An unprecedented trade in holiday
goods at record prices closed the year.
Prosperity beyond precedent in 1906 and
the high standards thereby established
makes prediction as to 1907 peculiarly
difficult. It may be said, however, that
the outlook for next year is very favorable.
Probably never before was the volume of
future business booked so large. From
three to nine months' orders ahead are
reported by manufacturers, and whole-
s alers and jobbers have been active as
never before on spring business. Perhaps
the heaviest future business done in any
line has been that booked in iron and
steel in all its forms. And what is true
of this generally regarded barometer of
trade is also largely the case in cotton
goods of all kinds. In addition, woolen
dress goods, hosiery and knit fabrics, lin-
ens, to a smaller extent ni silks, and cop-
per, hardware, rubber goods, lumber, farm
machinery, and a long list of other prod-
ucts are in excellent demand. Far from
affecting future trade, the high livel of all
prices seems to stimulate operations, and
a close analogy to past experience in stock
markets is afforded in the active buying
at advancing prices now witnessed. All
sections of the community seem to be
prosperous and spending more freely than
ever before. Three features with a bear-
ing upon the future are labor, prices and
money. Scarcity of the first, thereby fa-
voring further insistent demands, and the
higher tendency of the second, may push
matters to a point where production and
consumption alige might be checked. The
strain in money-a world-wide condition,
perhaps, but one felt here most, because
prosperity has been so pronounced-seems
to have so far only brought a small meas-
ure of conservatism. In the absence of
now unforeseen happenings, a very large,
if not record, year's business seems within
reach, modified as it may be by the ef-
fect of the forces above named and the
crop developments of 1907.
SHORTAGE OF CARS IN THE NORTH-
Washington, Dec. 26.-Interstate Com-
merce Commissioner Lane, who has had
direct* charge of ameliorating conditions
in the northwest where both coal and car
famines have prevailed, is in daily receipt
of hundreds of letters from dealers and
residents in North Dakota, Minnesota, Wy-
oming and Idaho, that tell a most in-
teresting story of existing conditions.
Some of the writers go to the extent of
saying that in many instances freight
trains have not passed railroad stations
for a month or isx weeks, and that hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars have been
lost to the farmers and elevator men,
particularly in North Dakota, ny reason
of their failure to obtain cars to move
their wheat and flax. Gov. Golding, of
Idaho, to whom Commissioner Lane had
written for information relative to con-
ditions in that state, says:
"The serious trouble, it seems to me, is
the fact that among the transportation
companies the one important considera-
tion in their management is the securing
of dividends without regard to the service
rendered to the people. The latter con-
sideration is entirely lost sight of."
Interstate Commerce Commission Reaches
Agreement with Railroad.
Washington, Dec. 25.-An agreement has
been reached by the Interstate Commerce
Commission with the railroads interested
regarding the complaint of the North Car-
olina Caseworkers' Association filed with
the commission several weeks ago. The
complaint was that on shipments of fur-
niture from North Carolina and Virginia
points to the Pacific coast the railroads
demanded a minimum weight of furniture
in 36-foot cars of 20,000 pounds. The
weight the association claims, was exces-
sive, as it was not possible to load a 36-
foot car with more than 16,000 pounds of
furniture. Today it was agreed by rep-
resentatives of the railroads to carry the
furniture to Pacific coast points at the
present low rate, with a minimum weight
of 16,000 pounds to a car. The agree-
ment contemplates a readjustment of the
rates on furniture, and it is expected
that in about thirty days the new tariffs
will be filed with the commission.
Since the purchase of Alaska in 1867,
the United States has received as revenue
from the lease of the sealing privilege on
the Pribiloff Islands, more than nine mil-
liion dollars, or two million more than we
paid for the territory. The trade in skins
on the Pribiloffs by Americans since the
purchase of Alaska exceeds fifty million
dollars in value. During the winter of
1905-6 the Department of Commerce and
Labor captured 456 blue and 11 white foxes
on the St. George Island.

THAT PROUAGE VERDICT.
The State of Florida ad especially that
element interested in its development,
progress ad good character, is to be con-
gratulated on the verdict of the jury in
the ae in the United States court where
Mr. F. J. O'Har and others were on trial
for conspiracy to commit peonage.
That verdict was a just testimonial to
the good ame of the State and a most
ftting rebuke to that element, who first
by slanderous newspaper reports and then
by ingenious trickery and deception ere-
ated a feeling among the United States
government officials at Washington which
resulted in a vigorous prosecution of some
of the most reputable men of the State in
the interest of alleged injustice to those
who came here ostensibly to work, whose
expenses were paid, but who refused to
work after they had arrived at the place
where the firm who had advanced them
were awaiting their services. With the
methods which were employed from the
outset the reading public of Florida is
well aware. They had read the sensa-
tional and false reports which had been
printed in the Northern sensational press,
and saw how the reports in question were
used as a basis for bringing these charges,
by those whose interest in the cases are
well known. If they have read the tes-
timony published in connection with the
reports of the trial concluded Monday,
they must be convinced of the injustice,
falsehood and calumny which characterized
the reports in the Northern press. They
have observed that the testimony given
by those whose responsibility was such as
to justify the committing magistrate in
keeping them in jail to hold them as wit-
nesses, has been flatly and effectively con-
tradicted by reputable men of Florida.
The verdict of the jury in this case,
which required but seventeen minutes to
render, is one which will be approved by
every well-wishing citizen of Florida. It
will have its effect, too, in repairing t0
a certain extent, the damage which has
been done the fair name of Florida by
those who have departed from the truth
in inspiring the damaging reports which
have been published broadcast over tihe
This case was one of the hardest fought
battles in the criminal courts of Florida.
Assistant Attorney General Russell, who
came from Washington to conduct the
prosecution ably and energetically hand-
led the government's side of the issue.
Assistant District Attorney Marks render-
ed him valuable assistance. On the other
hand, they were more than met in ability
and energy by Colonel W. M. Toomer and
George M. Powell, of this city, and Mr.
H. J. Hilburn, of Palatka, who met every
issue of the government and by men of
unquestioned character and veracity denied
the statements of the witnesses for the
There is strong reason for the belief
that when the end of the peonage cases
to be tried at this session of the United
States Circut Court is reached, that it will
effectually end prosecutions of this char-
acter in this State. The people of Flor-
ida have learned the lesson taught by the
flimsy evidence required to bring a case
of this character in court, and the gov-
ernment will doubtless learn that there is
not half an much to cases of this class as
some of the government agents have led
the government authorities to believe.
It is bad policy for any government to
lead its bt effort in the interest of a
class who ae using the strong arm of
that government to shirk a debt in any
form. I is hardly up to the standard of
civilization to keep in servitude and re-
straint any individual or set of individuate
because of debt, and The Record is pleased
to note that this was not done in the case
which has just been reviewed by a jury of
reputable citizens in the United States
court. We do not believe that it is being
done in any part of Florida, reports to
the contrary notwithstanding.
The Record congratulates Mr. O'Hara
and others who were defendants with him
in this case. It also extends congratula-
tions to the attorneys whose earnest ef-
forts have been of such service not only
to their clients but to the State of Flor-
ida and in fact the entire South.
JURY IS ORDERED FOR NEXT WED-
NESDAY AND ANOTHER TRIAL
WILL BE STARTED.
There is to be no cessation in the efforts
of the government to secure a conviction
on the pending peonage charges against
F. J. O'Hara and others, and the next case
will be taken up at 11 o'clock on Wed-
nesday, January 2.
The fact that two nolle prosequis were
entered in two cases, one against Mr.
O'Hara and one against Mr. Burrill, each
charging peonage, was construed by some
as meaning that the government would
not keep up the prosecution, in face of the
prompt acquittal that resulted in the first
case. This was entirely wrong, however.
The nolle prosequis were entered on the
two indictments in which indebtedness
was not distinctly set up. But these it
will be remembered, though held as valid
by the courts, were corrected by the secur-
ing of other indictments in which this
error was rectified. Trial will be had on
The indications are that the government
will press for trial on each of the remain-
ing indictments, though the evidence at
hand is practically only a repetition of
that which failed to make out a case at
the first trial.
When the United States district court
reconvened yesterday morning after the
Christmas recess, the counsel for the de-
fendants at once presented demurrers and
motions to quash as to indictments Nos.
235 and 236, the "corrected indictments."
In one of these O'Hara is the defendant
and in the other Burrill is the defendant.
These demurrers, which were substan-
tially the same as those offered in the
other instances, were submitted by counsel
without argument. The demurrers were
overruled by Judge Locke and the motions
to quash denied.
No exceptions were noted, as this ruling
stands for review by the appellate court
as it is.
Then came the motion for a bill of par-
ticulars, and this too, as in the previous
cases, was denied. An exception was not-
ed for the defendants.
This temporarily ended the peonage
cases so far as O'Hara and Burrill are con-
cerned, as there was no jury present and
trial could not be begun.
The demurrers to the indictment and the
motion to quash the indictments in the
two cases brought against Mr. John P.
Lynch, indictments that make the same
old charge save in this case the alleged
peons are Italians instead of Germans
and Jews, were overruled and denied by
In the case against Geiger the same
thing happened, the court over-ruling the
demurrer and denying the motion to quash.
These cases now, like those against
O'Hara, stand for trial, and may be taken
up next month before any more of the
O'Hara indictments are tried. But be this
as it may, it can be stated with certainty
that the government is going to keep at
work trying to get a conviction.
Mr. O'Hara and Mr. Burrill will be rep-
resented in the coming cases, as in the last
one, by Col. W. M. Toomer and Attorney
George M. Powel lof Jacksonville, and
Judge S. J. Hilburn of Palatka.

Representatives of the Bartow, St. Pet-
ersburg and Eustis Boards of Trade were
present during the hearing, besides many
prominent business men from the small
towns and country around Ocala.
Evidence was given that the Coast Line
has treated Eustis so badly that the bus-
iness men of the town have been obliged
to notify the wholesale houses from which
they buy goods to ship over the Seaboard
to Eldorado, five miles distant, from which
they will obtain their freight by boat,

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT WILL FAVOR
A MORE ADEQUATE MER-
Washington, D. C., Dec. 26.-Friends
of the shipping bill predict that the spe-
cial message which President Roosevelt
will send to Congress on the subject of
legislation for the encouragement of the
American merchant marine, will have much
effect on the members of Congress from
the Middle West whose opposition to ship
subsidy legislation, coupled as it has been
with that of the members from the South,
has hitherto prevented favorable consid-
eration for shipping measures. It is un-
derstood the message will deal with the
effect which foreign steamship combina-
tions have had on our trade, especially be-
tween the Atlantic coasts of South Amer-
ica and the United States, and between
the Pacific coast and Europe. Data has
been laid before the President, dealing
with these two combinations. One of them
has headquarters in Liverpool, and con-
trols our business with Brazil, Uruguay
and Argentina. The other, composed of
British, French and German steamship
owners, with headquarters in London, con-
trols the carrying of grain from Washing-
ton, Oregon and California, around Cape
Horn to Great Britain and Europe. T'he
President has been supplied with a copy
of the rules of this combination, dated
from Leadeahall Buildings, London, which
shows that the inflated rates of freight are
made to apply only on American cargoes
going to Europe, European goods shipped
outward to the Pacific coast being exempt-
ed by the rules.
The other combination, which monopo-
lizes the steamship traffic between New
York and South America, is also of an in-
ternational character, being composed prin-
cipally of German and British shipowners.
There is not an American ship in either
combination. Reports of our Ministers and
Consuls in South America and statements
of merchants and travelers, show that this
combination employs al the familiar ma-
chinery of rebates and discrimination,
and that they deliberately keep rates high
on American goods while lowering them
on European goods in order to favor our
competitors in Europe at our expense. Ac-
cording to the commercial press of Brazil,
it is largely due to the malice and extor-
tion of this European steamship ring that
our exports of breadstuffs, machinery and
provisions to Brazil decreased from $15,-
000,000 in 1895 to $11,000,000 in 1904.
The machinations of this European "com-
bine" are also responsible for the fact
that Secretary Root saw the Stars and
Stripes only once in his entire journey
around South America. Not a single
American steamer and only a few small of 000 to start ment on a home.

sail vessels flying the American flag ap-
peared in our trade with Argentina awl
Brazil in the first six months of 1906.
"'When these facts are made known,"
sgid a member of the House of Represent-
atives, who is prominently identified with
the sipping bill, "I shall be greatly inter-
ested in seeing whether those Western
men on the Committee and in the Iouse
who have hesitated about encouraging
American steamship lines will not change
their attitude. It is largely through ex-
torting high freight rates on products
raised and exported by Western farmers
that these foreign monopolies thrive. The
honor of our flag as well as the commer-
cial progress of the nation is involved in
the efforts of these European combinations
to throttle American trade."
A genius for figures has just been try-
ing to cipher out Nwhy San Francisco and
the Pacific slope is so terribly arJitatedl
over the coming of the Japanese. Accord-
ing to statistics they are coming to this
country at the rate of one thoiuand a
month, or twelve tloum and a year. At
that rate it will take a little more than
ninety-three years to have a million of
them come over. and as some of them will
die, and perhaps a few others return in
that time, it is not likely there will be a
whole million of them in 1999, the time
when the coming of a million will elapse.
We now have a population of 80,000,000,
and in 1999 we ought to have 200,000,000,
the Japs would only be two hundredth
of the whole population. As hardly any
of us will be alive in 1999 we ought not
to be much scared about the Japs. We
can safely leave them to our posterity.
If a hundred years from now they get to
be troublesome, our descendants will have
wit enough to tackle the subject.

Anegation in Alabama Is That Busines
Methods Are Irregular.
Birmingham, Dec. 27.-A petition was
filed in the city court here today for an
interlocutory injunction restraining the
Standard Trust Company, a Delaware cor-

the concern with irregular business meth-
It is set forth that the company has a
capital stock of $500,000 and does business
in the States of Alabama, South Carolina,
Kentucky, Mississippi, Virginia, Arkansas,
Florida, Texas and Colorado, and that a
contract called an "investment home pur-
chasing contract" is issued an applicant
upon the payment of $6 upon delivery, and
$6 on the fifteenth of every month for six
months, when he will be eligible to a loan
The petitioners aver that the scheme or
method of issuing the home purchasing
contracts involves elements of a lottery
and that the scheme is unlawful and
