With an abruptness which seldom at-
tends such a celebrated prosecution, the
naval stores trust case came to an end in
the United States District Court yester-
day when Spencer P. Shotter and J. F.
Cooper Myers and four of the seven cor-
porations under indictment confessed they
had violated the Sherman anti-trust law,
pledged in writing they would not commit
the offense again and were fined $30,00
and court costs.
A fine of $5,000 was assessed against
each of the six defendants that pleaded
guilty, and the indictments against the
other individual and corporate defendants
The plea that was entered by the six
defendants was a crowning victory for the
Hoa. Alexander Akerman, whom Judge
Speer, in passing sentence, referred to as
"the fearless and skillful assistant dis-
trict attorney." He secured the evidence,
prepared the prosecution and received the
Judge Speer pronounces monopolies such
as was admittedly the naval stores trust,
as "hostile to the genius of our institu-
tions as are chains and slavery to the in-
nocent and the free."
latercede for Accused.
Judge Speer stated that "the knowledge
that amiable and affectionate families
might suffer as much or more than the
defendants themselves, interceded more
powerfully than words might do in behalf
of the accused." He also said that "noble
and kind citizens of Savannah who fully
possess my confidence, have ardently and
strongly interceded for them.."
The defendants that entered pleas are:
S. P. Shotter.
J. F. Cooper.
J. F. Cooper Myers.
The S. P. Shotter Company.
The Patterson-Downing Company.
The Standard Naval Stores Company.
The Soeiete Anonyme des Produits Ros-
meaux, of Antwerp, Belgium.
Thoee Who Will escape.
Thost who escaped punishment are:
J. E. Discoll, E. S. Trosdal, H. A. Schro-
der, H. H. Bruen, Carl Moller, Herman
Weibert, Alexander Knight, The Atlantic
Investment Company, The National Trans-
* portation Company and the Globe Naval
The defendants case was conducted sole-
ly by Judge Sampel B. Adams and Wil-
liam W. Mackall, Esq., up to Sunday after-
noon, when Walter G. Charlton, Esq., and
George W. Owens, Esq., were retained. For
some time during the morning Mr. Charle-
ton and Mr. Owens were in conference
with Judge Speer in Chambers.
A large crowd availed itself of the Morn-
ing News' tip and the court room was
filled at 1 o'clock when Judge Speer recon-
vened court after a recess of an hour.
Two minutes before the appointed hour
the defendants and their counsel entered
and took the chairs that had been reserved
for them. Mr. Shotter and Mr. Meyers
occupied seats a little in advance of their
It was rumored all morning that pleas
of guilty would be entered by some of the
defendants, but it was not generally
known who they would be or what fine
would be imposed. It was not even a
matter of general information that the
judge would not incorporate an imprison-
ment clause in his sentence.
Plea Was Expected.
When court reconvened District Attor-
ney Akerman called the case of the United
States against the S. P. Shotter Company
"I am informed by counsel for defense
that they are willing to plead guilty for
four corporations," said the prosecuting
attorney, "namely, the S. P. Shotter Com-
pany, the Patterson-Downing Company,
the Standard Naval Stores Company and
the Belgian Company; and for the two
principal defendant individuals, Spencer P.
Shotter and J. F. Cooper Myers. If it
meets with your honor's approval I will
accept the pleas and will enter a nolle

They were simply employes, and what-
ever they did was done under the direc-

The judge directed that the pleas be en-
tered, and while this was being done by
Judge Sampel B. Adams, chief counsel for
the defendants, there was perfect silence
in the court room. Then Mr. Shotter and
Mr. Myers stood up to be sentenced. They
had nothing to say and their counsels were
silent when the court gave them an oppor-
tunity to speak. The judge said:
"The prosecution which terminates with
the pleas of guilty, entered by the influen-
tial business men and the strong corpor-
ations which stand indicted before the
court, is of the utmost significance. It

Matte, Good Roads, Merchant Marine. Etc
The Florida State Board of Trade As-
sembled in Jacksonville on Wednesday at
the call of its president, Mr. S. A. Rawls.
The meeting Was called to order at 10
o'clock in the auditorium of the Board of
Trade Imilding. Representative business
men from all parts of the State were pres-
ent. The results of this meeting promise
to be far reaching in importance and to
mean much for the material progress and
development of the State. Addresses were
made by some of the members present,
and ringing resolutions were passed on
many subjects which are now agitating
the people of Florida.
Proceedings of Meeting.
Promptly at 10 o'clock President Rawls
called the meeting to order. Seated with
him on the platform was the Hon. W. R.
Fuller, president of the Tampa Board of
Trade and Hon. Wiliam H. Baker, mayor
President Bawls opened the meeting with
a brief address. He stated that the meet-
ing had been called solely for the purpose
of considering matters of State interest,
with especial reference to the great ques-
tion of immigration. He laid stress on the
fact that on Tuesday. Georgia had acted.
He recalled that South Carolina had taken
the lead. The time was ripe for Florida
to act, he said in conclusion, and expressed
the hope that before adjournment the Flor-
ida State Board of Trade would have
taken such action as would make this
meeting ever memorable.
And the results of the meeting, as de-
tailed elsewhere, show how well founded
was the hope of President Rawls.
The Addresses of Welcome.
The first address of welcome, delivered
on behalf of the city, came from Mayor
Baker. Mayor Baker stated that all Jack-
sonville recognized the importance of this
meeting, understood that wha worked for
the development of the State worked as
well for the development of this city. He
then briefly outlined some of the problems
that confront the Floridian of today, as
he saw those problems. and closed by ten-
dering the freedom of the city to the mem-
bers of the State Board of Trade.
The address of welcome on behalf of the
Jacksonville Board of Trade was delivered
by Mr. George R. DeSaussure, of the board
of governors, who spoke on behalf of Pres-
ident Garner. whose health would not per-
mit him to be present in person.
Mr. DeSaussure called attention to the
part the Jacksonville Board of Trade had
played in the formation of this body, and
then, after dwelling on the progressive
work that had already marked the history
of the local board, pledged its support,
hearty and unrestrained, to every move-
ment that tended to upbuild and strength-
The Resposae Followe.
The response to the welcome extended
bI ythe city, through Mayor Baker, was
made by Hon. C. L. Bittinger, of Oeala.
Mr. Bittinger thanked the city for the
hospitality it had extended, recalled the
pleasant visits to Jacksonville in the past,
and closed by stating that the kindly
words of welcome would be repaid by acts
that would help upbuild Jacksonville and
the State, of which this city was the
metropolis. Mr. Bittinger injected con-
siderable humor into his address, and he
was warmly applauded when he had con-
The response to the welcome of the Jack-
sonville Board of Trade, given through
Mr. DeSaussure, was replied to by Hon.
W. R. Fuller, president of the Tampa
Board of Trade.
Mr. Fuller's address was brief and to the
point. He thanked Mr. DeSaussure for
the invitation extended, and pledged the
Tampa Board of Trade to as heartily in-
dorse the actions of the State Board of
Trade as would the Jacksonville body.

said. was unity, and the Tampa Board of
Trade, though the part it had played in
e formation of the State board was a
large one, asked no offices, but asked only
their right and privilege to join hands
with every man who was working for the
upluilding of Florida.
Committees e Appointed.
Mr. Edwin Brobston then moved that
three committees be appointed, one on
plan and scope (legislation), one on reso-
lutions, and one on ways and means. The
motion was promptly seconded, and Presi-
dent Rawls named the following members
of thle State Board of Trade to serve on

When he had concluded, a motion was
made that the board adjourn, to reassem-
ble at 2:30 o'clock, and hear the reports
of the committees. This motion was
promptly seconded, put and carried, and
the adjournment followed.
It was just noon when the morning
session, which paved the way for the
great work of the afternoon, concluded.
The Afternoon Sessions.
The afternoon session was opened by
tne address of Mr. Alfred O. Crozier, who
discussed the question of good roads and
Its bearing on the immigration problem.
Mr. Crozier, who is a visitor to Florida,
is from Wilmington, Del., and is a stu-
dent of the question discussed. His ad-
dress was enthusiastically received.
Then came the report of the committee
on plan and scope (legislation), and the
offering of the bill, which is printed else-
where in its entirety.
The committee on ways nd means, being
necessarily unable to act until the plan
and scope committee had reported, asked
for further time. This was granted them,
and the plan and scope committee being
discharged with the thanks of the board,
the work of pushing the bill was left to
the ways and means committee, and the
special committee that is to be appointed
later by President Rawls.
Then the committee on resolutions made
its report, the feature of which was the
resolution calling for congressional inves-
tigation of the method of the peonage
prosecutions in Florida and the South and
the animus that marks them. The other
resolutions, all of which were adopted, are

of a greater supply and better class of
labor for the development of the indus-

cultivated for lack of settlers, and whereas
our industries offer remunerative em-
ployment to a reliable class of labor; there-
fore be it
"Resolved, That this body, representing
the whole State, urged upon the legisla-
ture of the State the formation of a
bureau of immigration and the enactment
o0 an immigration law, as recommended by
the committee on legislation."
For Merchant Marine.

intimately related to the question of ocean
transportation, and the development of
direct trade from southern ports will open
the way for securing a desirable class of

kets of the world; and
"Whereas, The South is destined to be

well as producing section, and we must
look to the foreign world for consumers of
the output of our factories, our mines and
our forests; and
"Whereas, We believe that our section
more than any other would receive the
benefits of direct trade with Europe and
especially the far east through the way
ol the Isthmian canal; therefore, be it
"Resolved, That we direct the attention
of our representatives in congress to the
urgent need for American ships to carry
American goods to the consumers of the
earth; and be it further
"Resolved, That we deem a merchant
marine as much of an advertisement in
times of peace as is a strong navy in
times of war; and be it further
"Resolved, That we deem this matter
more a business question than one of pol-
itics, and the-efore ask our representa-
tives to consider the matter from a prac-
tical utility standpoint."
State Board of Trade.
"Whereas, a State Board of Trade, com-
posed of representatives of the various
boards of trade of the State and individ-
ual business men of various sections of
the State has been organized for the pur-
pose of putting the advantages of Florida
before the world and furthering the best
interests of our State, and as it is striving
to bring immigration to make glad our
waste places; therefore, be it
"Resolved, That the sentiment of this
convention is that every citizen of the
State, having the best interests of Florida
at heart, should become a member of this
organization and by his influence uphold
the hands of its officers and its commit-
"W'hereas, The question of immigration
is vitally affected by the means of internal
transportation and, whereas the producers
of our State are being heavily taxed upm
each wagon-load of produce drawn from
their farms to market; therefore, be it
"Resolved, That this State Board of
Trade request our legislature to provide
some adequate plan to provide for good
roads for the residents of Florida and
those whom we invite to come among us;
and be it also
"Resolved, That we believe that the
convicts of this State should make good
roads for those whose path they have
made rough in the p ast, and that we be-
lieve the convicts of the state should be
used soledy upon the roads of the state."
Resolutions of Thank.
"Whereas, this convention has received

stay of the members so pleasant; and be it
"Resolved: That the sincere thanks cf
this State Board of Trade be tendered Mr.
Alfred O. Crozier for his forceful and con-
vincing address on the question of good
The Concluding Features.
All of the resolutions, as printed above
were adopted. The resolutions regarding
t..e merchant marine and its upbuilding
originally contained one clause endorsing
the ship subsidy hill "provided no other
way of securing a merchant marine could
be found." This raised great opposition
and finally, by the narrow margin of one
vote, was rejected from the resolutions.
Then followed a discussion of the ques-
tion of good roads, a comparison of costs,
and other features connected with this
At 5:15 o'clock adjournment was taken,
the State Board of Trade to assemble
again at the call of the president, when
he deemed another meeting necessary. Thus
ended one of the most important meet-
ings, as it is universally conceded to have
been, held in Jacksonville in recent years,
a meeting marked by the transaction (.f
business of vital importance to the entire
State of Florida.

"In making up the discussion of the

the property of the South is today worth
$19,400,000,000, as against $16,160,000,000
in 1860. It puts the increase in real wealth
in the South in 1906 at $2,856,956,158, or at
the rate of $7,280,000 a day, including Sun-
days and holidays. Nowhere have I seen
a criticism of the accuracy of these figures.
"How much Florida has done towards
contributing her share to this wonderful
development of the South is shown by the
facts and figures recently collated and pub-
lished by our state department in the
Times-Union as follows:
"The assessment rolls for the year 1906
show the valuation of property for assess-
ment purposes to be as follows: Real es-
tate, $89,081,434; personal property, $26,-
994,593; railroads, $25,570,251; and tele-
graph lines, $372,503; making an aggre-
gate of $142,018,871. The aggregate valu-
ation for 1901 was $97,551,192, and the
aggregate valuation as above stated for
1906 is $142,018,871, which shows an in-
crease of $44,467,679 in the last five years."
About Florida Population.
"Now, what about our population and
"By reference to the state census re-
port for 1905 we find that we have less
than 650,000 souls, white and black, upon
whom we must depend to man every in-
dustry in the State; 31,233 are operat-
ed by white of farming lands of which
only 1,.21,362 acres are improved. Read-
ing from the same report we find that
of the 45.484 farms in the state 31,233 are
operated by white people and 14,251 oper-
ated by negroes.
"The possible diversity of crops are lim-
ited only by the versatility of our planters
and farmers, and the yield of whatever
crop planted, measured only by the degree
of intelligent energy put forth by the in-
dividual in taking advantage of conditions,
which, when compared with conditions in
a more northern latitude are for the most
part found to be friendly.
"Let us then devise ways and means by
which the small farmer, the hard working
peasant of overcrowded Europe can learn
first hand of the wonderful possibilities of
our state for the homeseeker, and wheq
we have told him about it (and let us be
careful to tell him only the truth about
it, then let us show our good faith by as-
sisting him to quit himself of the dear
but overcrowded mother country, help him
to find his way to some part of Florida,
where the state through her accredited
representatives will meet and welcome him
and conduct him to a neighborhood where
he will be extended the right hand of hon-
est fellowship, and assisted by neighbors
to take up the work of home building and
fit himself for citizenship in a country
where every name spells freedom and hap-
piness, and a state whose reputation for
health and prosperity is being widened by
each new comer.
Source of Immigrants.
"The head of the average peasant family
of Europe today, and I don't refer to the
idlers to be found in the portions of the
great cities, but to the inhabitants of the
rural districts, finds it most difficult if
not impossible, after furnishing his man-
child to the army or navy, to spare his
womenfolk the performance of almost ox-
like labor on the farm.
"It is to this class we can offer relief,
to this class we can point out a home
where life's labors can be interspersed with
some of its pleasures, where educational
facilities are within reach of rich and poor
-where religion is of one's own choosing
and freedom of thought aqd speech the
very foundation upon which our govern-
ment is based, and principles as well to
which the state and the nation forever
stand pledged. It is to this class of hon-
est men and virtuous women, sturdy and
strong in heart and in body, that we can
with no discredit to ourselves, mate our
sons and daughters, with the comforting
assurance that the proginy of such unions
would grow up to love the nation, the
Southland, the state of Florida as their
forebears had loved the old country.
"It cannot be imagined either that such
an offspring would, with such precept and
example, ever lose sight of the paramount
importance of perpetuating a race whose
blood would flow free of African taint.
Some Shining Examples.
"Many such immigrants have already
landed upon our shores, but owing to the
conditions already briefly alluded to. the
worthy immigrant has so quickly been as-
similated with our national life, our po-
litical, business and social life, that he is
already one of us, and we find the immi-
grant but one or two short generations
removed, occupying positions of hibbest
honor and trust in the councils of the na-
tion, the several states and municipali-
"And as an evidence that the South
does not need to be converted or educated
up to this idea, we have but to refer to
that Jewish lad of poor and obscure par-
ents, who, by his noble character and up-
right life and studious habits, won for
himself the friendship and fellowship of
the best men of the South, who gladly ac-
corded him a high place among the valued
councellors of her most trying period. I
need scarcely mention the name of the
hon. Judah P. Benjamin, and. this instance
of the emminent success of this great and
good man is but one example of the
"Neither is this just tribute and this il-
lustration to be applied only to the dead,
because, forsooth, we have today in the
nation's cabinet a native Georgian who
came of foreign parents, but one whom the
South loves to honor. I refer to the hon-
orable, the high minded, clear headed com-
missioner of commerce and labor, Oscar

Strauss, whose recent ruling upon this
very question of bringing immigrants into
the South is of the highest importance and
interest to every citizen of the South and
What It Gained.
"The selected immigrant, the man whom
we by this measure would induce to make
his home among us, would scorn the idea
of becoming the ward of the nation or the
state, or a charge upon any community.
All he wants is a square deal, an oppor-
tunity to make his brain and muscle and
I feel no hesitancy in making the state-
ment in advance of his coming, that if we
will do our part in bringing him, in sett-
ling him, he will not only "stay put" but
when he has become settled and accustom-
ed to his new home and surroundings, he
will, by his letters home, soon induce
others to follow and thereby himself be-
come a successful immigration agent with-
out'cost to the state.
"If, therefore, we can enlarge our popu-
lation from the class we have mentioned
who will question that from such a people
we will find intelligent, able bodied men
and women in numbers sufficient to sup-
ply every demand for labor; labor that
can be relied upon six days in the week;
labor that will need no coercing; labor
that asks no favors beyond fair treatment
and labor that seeks no arbitration of
differences save such as can always be
found in the conscience of fair and honest
men; men and women who recognize the
true dignity of labor and who love work
for work's sake; men and women who by
their thrift and industry will set a good
example to our own people and contribute
to the routing of the ante-bellum idea
that hard work, common labor, is menial,
degrading, and employment fit only for
White Labor Best.
"My conviction is that the South grows
no crop which cannot be more successfully
and economically grown by the white
man than by the negro, even if the negro
could any longer be depended upon; and
what is true of the farm and the orchard
and the garden is true of the mill, the
mine, the factory and every other indus-
try of Florida and the South.
Education of Negro.
"It has been often claimed and strongly
maintained that education could be re-
lied upon to cure any moral or social evil,
and while I do not propose to argue this
question I would direct the attention of
all advocates of this contention to the
fact that education of the brand we know
about, and pay for, when applied to or in-
jected into or practiced upon the negr),
seems to have failed utterly to better fit
him for that sphere and the accomplish-
ment of those deeds for which doubtless he
was crated and intended.
"It will not do to say that during 1900
eleven hundred thousand immigrants
found their way through Ellis Island and
that therefore we can get all we want by
going to New York for them. The great
northwest, aided by the railroads, who get
the long haul, have been and are still able
to outbid us for the desirable class, and we
have had enough and to spare of the peon-
age hunting class unloaded upon us by the
New York immigration or emigration
The Peonage Cases.
"And just here I take the liberty of
drawing your attention to a matter 1
consider of vital importance in its bearing
upon the question and directly concerning
our citizenship. We have had enough of
that class of labor that has been, I may
say, 'emigrated' at us from New York.
"A reputable, honorable, God-fearing
citizen of Florida has just gone through
the ordeal of trial in the United States
Court, at a cost estimated by himself of
more than $12,000 on this question of pe-
onage. And in the face of the fact that
the Government had sent here special of-
ficers to gather the facts and to prosecute
this man, in face of the fact that, at the
advice of his learned counsel, the Govern-
Iment tried this man first on what is be-
lieved to be its strongest and best case;
in face of the fact that twelve good men
and true, the peers and equals of this de-
fendant citizen of Florida and the United
States, acquitted him of this charge; in
face of all this the United States, through
its biased representatives, actuated by
some cause that is to us as yet unknown,
placed him again on trial, heaped upon
him an additional expense, confronted him
with the same witnesses with only the
same stories to tell, charged him with the
same facts, imprisoned twelve citizens of
this state in a jury box for twenty-one
days demanding that they pass upon the
same facts as had a former jury. And
these twelve men, like the first twelve,
declared this defendant not guilty! (Sus-
"No man can say that this is some-
thing which does not concern him. No
one of us can say this is that man's own
business-it is nothing to me. It is some-
thing to each and every one of you, wheth-
er you employ many laborers or one,
whether you employ a cook, a coachman
or a gardner. If this practice is to con-
tinue, if this principle is to prevail, no
man's liberty is safe.
The Concluding Words.
"Where, then, can we turn? Where
can we go? How can we supply this de-
mand for labor which come to us from
every county in the state, from every in-
dustry, every interest? How can we get
labor and yet not violate the so-called
contract labor laws, not subject ourselves
to the charge of peonage?

LUMBERMEN TO MEET.
Manufacturers and Wholesalers Will Hold
Convention in Jacksonville Next Week.
There will be the greatest gathering of
lumber manufacturers and lumber dealers
in Jacksonville next week that has ever
been seen here at one time. The occasion
will be the joint meeting and conference
ot the Georgia-Florida Sawmill Associa-
tion and the various lumber dealers' asso-
ciations of New York, Boston, Philadel-
phia and Baltimore.
At the meeting of the Georgia-Florida
Sawmill Association held in this city last
December, a committee was appointed to
arrange for the holding of this conference.
This committee consists of A. G. Cummer,
F. J. O'Hara and F. E. Waymer. The
committee has attended to the general
details and the prospects are that every-
thing will work smoothly.
That there is great interest in the com-
ing meeting is shown by the following arti-
cle published in the Savannah Morning
Savannah Is Coming.
"At a meeting of the Lumber Commit-
tee of the board of trade yesterday reso-
lutions were passed thanking Vice-Presi-
dent .W. B. Stillwell, of the Georgia-Flor-
ida Sawmill Association, for an invitation
to tne conference that will be held in
Jacksonville between the association and
other similar organizations along the At-
lantic coast next week.
"It was decided that the committee
would attend the conference, which will be
between the association and the makers of
the interstate rules of 1005. The meeting
of the sawmill men will be held in Jack-
sonville, at the Windsor Hotel, commenc-
ing Monday, and will be attended by sev-
eral hundred delegates. While this is the
monthly meeting of the association it will
also be the annual meeting and outing,
and all of the New York lumbermen, who
entertained the association so royally last
February, will be present and participate
in the social features.
"The meeting will be called to order at
10 o'clock Monday morning, and after a
business session, a sight-seeing trolley trip
will be taken around the city.
"On Tuesday, February 26, the visitors
will be taken up the St. John's river on
the Clyde Line steamer City of Jackson-
ville, returning to Jacksonville Wednesday
"On Thursday the delegates will go to
St. Augustine on a special train, the party
breaking up at St. Augustine, from which
place the visitors will return to their
"The Savannah delegation will leave
here Sunday afternoon on the Florida Lim-
ited, over the Atlantic Coast Line Railway
in order to be present during the business
"The entertainment promises to be the
most elaborate that has ever been attempt-
ed by the Georgia-Florida Associations.
Last year the New York Association en-
tertained the other associations of the
country in New York, and no expense or
pains were spared in making it a royal
time for the visitors. Now the Southern
lumbermen will show the Northerners
what Southern hospitality is like."
AL STORES PRODUCTION DE-
Forest Fires, Storms and the Scarcity of
Labor the Causes.
W. C. Powell, president of tie Consoli-
dated Naval Stores Company, who was in
Savannah last week, gave an interesting
interview to a Savannah News reporter on
storesthe subject of the prospects of the
naval stores production for the present
season. The interview will be read with
interest by those interested in the sub-
Prospects for an increase in the pro-
duction of naval stores, which seemed fair
some time ago, have dwindled away :tc-
cording to reports from Georgia and Flor-
ida operators, and it is practically certain
that the coming crop will not surpass that
for the last season, with many indications
that it will actually be smaller.
Two events, one a dispensation of na-
ture and the other the carelessness of
men, have combined to check any increase.
The first is the destructive storm which
swept through western Alabama and Miss-
issippi early last fall, clearing a broad
path through the pine forests, and the sec-
ond is the unprecedented prevalence of for-
est fires, particularly in Florida, although
also in Georgia.
The dryness of the box cutting season,
white it had encouraged this work, also
rendered the woods highly intlamable, sec-
tions where water usually stands being as
dry as the proverbial bone. In the past
the operators have found it sufficient to
guard against forest fires by clearing the
grass, etc., from around the trees, but this
time the fires were so fierce, fed by the
abundance of leaves and needles, that they
leaped across the defences and destroyed
There is the ever present labor problem,
which bids fair to be about as troublesome
as it was last season. Then, too, the fac-
tors have been strongly inclined to discour-
age the entrance of inexperienced men into
the industry, the new entries last season
having been numerous. Without aid from
the factors few producers would be able to
run until their products were marketed
and the money paid to them.
Every year the virgin forests are be-
coming more and more encroached upon in
Georgia and Florida, as well as in Ala-
bama and Mississippi, and it is only a
question of time before the sources of sup-
ply in the United States will be very limit-
ed. Timber men and incautious box cut-
ters have made great inroads on the pine
forests of the South in recent years and
the damage is irreparable.
Few men in the naval stores business
are as thoroughly posted on conditions am-
ong producers as Mr. W. C. Powell of
Jacksonville, president of the Consolidated
Naval Stores Company, who was in the
city yesterday on a visit to the offices of
his company here. While illness has pre-
vented Mr. Powell from making his per-
sonal trip trips through the turpentine
belt of Florida, he has received reports
from the interior which have given him a
clear idea of the situation.
No Increase Possible.
'"Reports from Florida show that many
boxes were ruined by fire," said Mr. Pow-
ell. "1 should judge that the boxes de-
stroyed would be equal in number to the
new boxes cut. The fires have been worse
than usual, the lack of rain and of water
in the woods, making it impossible to
check them. The woods were as dry as
a tinder lox, with the accumulation of
leaves and grass of years ready at hand.
"I do not believe it possible to have
an increased production in Florida the
coming season. Had there been no forest
fires and with plenty of labor there would
have been an increase. Fires have also
played havoc in Georgia, I am informed.
Many prospective operators could not get
in this time on account of the conditions
of the money market. More preferred bus-
iness was turned down by factors during
the last three months of 1906 than ever
before. Higher prices for labor have made
it necessary for factors to advance larger
sums for the same outturn.
"Another deterrent to a large production
is the condition in the storm-swept dis-
trict of Alabama and Mississippi. I do
not believe the damage actually done has
leen fully estimated. From the memoran-
da of one manufacturer's agent who
travels that territory, it was shown that
whereas for the season of 1906 he sold 900
dozen sets of turpentine tools, for the pres-
ent season he sold only 415 dozen sets in
the same territory.
New Season Early One.
"Prices for naval stores will never be
lower, according to my opinion. Opera-
tors cannot work at much lower prices. It
costs three time as much on the average to
produce naval stores as it did ten or fifteen
"The box-cutting season is practically
over, the new season opening on April 1.

The weather has been fine, but considering
the damage by fire, it would have been
much better for the owners of pine trees
had the season been wet. The season will
be an early one and receipts will probably
begin to come in next month, and by the
first of April the shipments should be of
"So tar as a large crop is concerned,
the end of the industry is not many years
ahead. There is talk of the possibilities
of Mexico, but things are in the experi-
mental stage there. The high altitude of
the pine lands there may affect the bear-
ing powers of the trees, and it is an open
question whether operations will be re-
munerative. Until further work is done
the ability of that country to supply the
market cannot be told. The South is the
chief source and may continue to be."
The Wealth of the
Often disappeared, evaporated, and the
new generation was left but one or two

The Florida College of Pharmacy has
just passed through a very successful
year, with an enrollment of seventeen
students, representing five different states
of the Union.
The officers of the College are discussing
the proposition of erecting a college build-
ing to be situated in the heart of the
city and to be devoted entirely to col-
lege purposes. If this plan is decided
upon the building will be erected in 1908,
and with a steady increase of students it
will be necessary to have a building of
this kind to carry on the college properly.

tion of the manner of conducting peonage

feeling speeches were made on the subject.
After much discussion the following reso-
lutions were unanimously adopted:
"Whereas, The published reports in some
of the northern papers on the condition
and treatment of labor in the South are,
in the opinion of the State Board of Trade,

while the gains of their trust in violation
of law have doubtless been also great, the
full measure of punishment authorized by
the statute will not be imposed. Each of

to pay the maximum fine of the statute,
which is five thousand dollars, and will

A S400o TIMBER DEAL.
Wayross, Ga., Feb. 20.-Probably the
biggest land deal ever consummated in this
section of the State was closed in this
city last night. The deal was the pur-
chase of 200,000,000 feet of timber in the
southern part of Ware and Clinch coun-
ties by the Ensign Lumber Company, who
to-day filed a petition for incorporation.
The price paid for the timber was $2 per
thousand feet, and the cash which changed
hands is about $400,000.
The men who pulled off th edeal were
W. W. Sharpe, Warren Lott, W. S. El-
lintgon, W. A. Price, J. S. Bailey and G. G.
Parker, all of Waycross.
The Ensign Lumber Company is com-
posed of J. Lee Ensign and John H. Pow-
ell of Jacksonville, H. H. Tift, of Tifton,
.and G. G. Parker of Waycross. The com-
pany proposes to erect in Waycross one
of the largest sawmills in the country and
will run a railroad out from Waycross
through their property. The capital stock
of the Ensign Manufacturing Company is
named as $100,000, all of which has been
paid in, and the petitioners ask the privi-
lege of increasing the stock to a sum not
