Drainage by the Government; Ques-
'tion That is Important.
Federal Regulation of Railroads;
White House Conference Held.
The National Drainage Association,
St. Louis, March 25, 1907.
Mr. J. A. Hollomon, Jacksonville, Florida:
My Dear Sir-Your name has been sent
to me as one being interested in Drainage.
I send you a copy of Drainage Bill tuat
should be made a law at the next session
I send you copy of explanatory letter
that is being written to executive and
I send you membership application, hop-
ing you will join forces to secure Drain-
age by the Government.
I will send you literature as the ques-
tion develops. Will you kindly send me
names who should be interested in Drain-
aget Very truly yours,
Thomas L. Cannon, Secretary.
My Dear Sir-I take the liberty of send-
ing you a few facts regarding a vital prin-
ciple that will very largely affect your
State. If this matter interests you, I
will be pleased to present for your con-
sideration more detail with the view of
interesting people of your State in this
According to a recent magazine article
by United States Senator Newlands, the
public lands aggregate 500,000,000 acres.
bell those lands at $1.25 an acre and it
creates a fund of $625,000,000. Sell the
lands at an average of $2.50 an acre and
it creates a fund of $1,250,000,000.
The majority of the lands in question
are of little value. If the Government
valued its property in the same way that
an individual would value the same prop-
erty, the price of $2.50 an acre is not
From the sale of public lands has been
created the fund of $33,000,000, to be used
for irrigation. This fund begun in 1902.
From the same source it is the purpose of
the National Drainage Association to cre-
ate a second fund to be used in Drainage.
As lands are reclaimed the purchaser
pays the price of the land plus cost of
reclamation. Such payments are made in
ten annual installments. When the en-
tire work has been accomplished, every
dollar that has been expended for Inter-
nal Improvement will have been returned
to the Federal Government.
Every man who has been benefited will
have personally paid for that benefit. No
one will have been taxed to pay the cost
of another getting a home. No one will
have been deprived of any individual
The intention of those who originated
the idea of the Reclamation fund was
that it should apply both to Irrigation
and Drainage. The activity of the States
having land to be irrigated and the inac-
tivity of the States having land to be
drained resulted in a benefit to Irrigation
interests that is not shared by Drainage
The money received from the sale of
public lands belongs to all the people. It
is not a State fund or a sectional fund;
but a Government fund. On that prin-
ciple is planted the movement of the
National Drainage Association.
The Government is spending about $30,-
100,000 in Irrigation. The fund will con-
tinue to grow. The only Drainage dis-
trict that the Government has actually
undertaken is the Mud Lake District of
Minnesota. A preliminary map, issued by
the Interior Department shows that that
Alstrict has 400,200 acres of land. Of that
amount 130,000 acres is Government land.
The approximate assessment by the
Government is $3.25 per acre. The ap
proximate assessment by the Government
against land improved by Drainage is
$1.60 an acre.
Experience shows that to reclaim land
by Irrigation will cost close to an aver-
age of $25.00 per acre, as compared to a
cost of $3.00 per acre by Drainage.
It is officially known that there is 100,-
000,000 ac:es of land that can be reclaim-
ed by Irrigation and Drainage.
It is officially known that there is 100,-
000,000 acres of land that can be benefited
by Irrigation and by Drainage. These
lands are practically equally divided to be
reclaimed by Drainage and Irrigation.
The benefits by either system of lecla-
mation will be practically equal in in
creasing land value and in crop produc-
The land that can be reclaimed by Irri-
gation and by Drainage would furnish
homes to at least 15,000,000 people; in-
crease land value more than $5,000,000;
increase annual crop value more than $6,-
When these figures were presented to
business men of St. Louis, subscriptions
of from $100 to $200 were made to defray
expenses of a campaign of education.
Not one of the men who have contrib-
uted to that fund own land to be irrigated
or drained. The subscriptions were made
as a commercial investment to increase
trade. The funds are carefully guarded
and judiciously expended for the general
benefit of commerce.
Originally the Irrigaticn Law did not
apply to Texas. The law was amended
in 1896 so as to include Texas.
In December, 1900, a Drainage meeting
was called at Oklahoma City and the
National Drainage Association organized.
The purpose being to secure legislation by
Congress to reclaim lands by Drainage as
well as by Irrigation.
On December 17, 1906. Senator Clapp,
of Minnesota, introduced Senate bill 7200,
a copy of which is mailed you.
Thle short session of the late term of
congresss prevented this bill being thor-
oughly discussed; but it was reported fav-

Washington, March 27.-An important
conference was held at the White House
tonight, at which the railroad question
generally was discussed. Those present
were Seeretary of the Treasury Cortelyof,
Secretary of the Interior Garfield, Asist-
ant Secretary of State Bacon, Chairman
.,napp and Special Counsel F. B. Kellogg,
of the Interstate Commerce Commission,
and all the members of the commission
except Messrs. Prouty and Cockrell, who
are out of the city. The conference lasted
two and a half hours. After the confer-
ence adjourned it was stated that the
meeting was called to outline a scheme to
oe presented to the next congress for the
federal regulation of the railroads of the
The plan proposed by Jacob H. Schifl
for remedying the railroad situation, which
has attracted a great deal of attention,
vas not taken up at the conference. Mr.
,iellogg, who has charge of the Harriman
investigation, denied that this question
a as brought up at the conference.
A committee representing the Illinois
.Manufacturers' Association, headed by C.
i. Smith, of Aurora, president, called on
the president today by appoitnment, and
extended to him an invitation to address
at Springfield, IlL, at the earliest possible
late, a convention of representatives of
the manufacturers and mercantile inter-
ests of Illinois and the middle West. The
conference lasted over an hour, during
which there was a free discussion of the
railroad situation. At its conclusion the
committee gave out the following state-
"The committee stated to the president
that it fully appreciated and endorsed the
very great work which he had done and
was doing in behalf of the people of the
whole country, in demanding fair dealing
of the railroads in their relations with
the shipping interests and in reconstruct-
ing the unfair and one-sided conditions
that had so long prevailed.
SOUTHERN'S NEW DIVISIONS.
The details for sub-dividing the South-
ern Railway into two grand districts has
Ieen arranged by Vice-President and Gen-
eral Manager C. W. Acker, who has issued
a circular appointing the managers for
the two divisions and giving other infor-
Of this change the Atlanta Journal
"The creation of the two new divisions
will become effective at once, and it is
presumed that M. M. Richey, who will be
manager of the middle and western divis-
ion, with headquarters at Atlanta, will
arrive in a few days and take charge of
his new duties.
"According to the circular the office of
Feelim of TimMtty.
"The committee submitted to the prei-
dent that the present disturbed railroad
financial situation was creating a feeling
of timidity and apprehension to such an
extent that it threatened a curtailment of
banking and business creditors which had
heretofore been extended to the business
interests of the country at a time when
the greatest possible demand for the fur-
ther extension of credit prevailed for the
development of the increasing demand of
the manufacturing and mercantile indus-
tries of the country. It was shown to
the president that the manufacturers in
the enjoyment of their unprecedented cred-
it, had largely extended their business in
the making of purchases necessary to fll
orders which require many months for
their completion; that the manufacturing
and mercantile interests were apprehen-
sive that a feeling of distrust was getting
a foothold which would lead to financial
curtailment and such restriction of credit
as to threaten dangerous results to the
great prosperity that now existed in all
avenues of industry. It was urged upon
the president that very great good would
come to all interests alike if he would sig-
nify his willingness to express in a public
address, as soon as possible, the keynote
of his creative and constructive policy."
The president was informed by the com-
mittee that, though the country's pros-
perity was very great, it would soon be-
come seriously impaired by the creation
of an uneasines on the part of the banks
and investor, and would lead to such dis-
trust as to prevent the supply of the
necessary moneys to satisfy existing
wants. At the close of the conference the
president thanked the committee for its
frank statement of the existing conditions
as they appeared to the committee and
promised that within a few days he would
determine whether his present engage-
ments would permit him to aeept the com-
mittee's invitation, which he expreed
himself as anxious to do if he possibly
manager of transportation will be abolish-
ed. This position was held by J. N. Scale,
who has been appointed manager of the
northern and eastern districts, with head-
quarters at Washington.
"The organization of the different dis-
tricts, which have been in existence for
some time, in so far as the general sup-
erintendency is concerned, will remain the
same as at present.
"The general superintendent of the wes-
tern district at Birmingham and the gen-
eral superintendent of the middle district
at Knoxville will report to Manager Rich-
ey at Atlanta, while the general superin-
tendent of the eastern district at Char-
lotte, and the general superintendent of
the northern district at Danville, will re-
port to Manager Seale at Washington.

PANAMA CANAL TRADE.
Southern Houses are Entitled to a Share
The Record notes with great satisfaction
that Hon. J. A. Van Hoose, of Birming-
ham, Ala., president of the Southern
Wholesale Grocers 'Association, is making
a determined effort to secure for the
wholesale houses and manufacturing es-
tablishments of the South a fair share of
the trade of the Panama Canal Commis-
sion, and with this object in view has ad-
dressed the following letter to the Baker
a Holes Company, wholesale grocers
of this city:
Birmingham, Ala., March 20, 1907: Baker
and Holmes Company, Jacksonville, Fla.:
Gentlemen-In view of the fact that the
South and Southwest are geographically
and should de commercially deeply inter-
ested in the construction of the Panama
canal; and in view of the fact that there
is already a large demand on the isthmus
for supplies of many kinds; and in view
of the fact that our city is a port accessi-
ble to a large area of interior country; and
in view of the further fact that the South-
ern Wholesale Grocers' Association is or-
ganized or the purpose of assisting trade
conditions in the territory identified with
same, I now beg to ask your attention to
the following questions:
First. Has your market been supplying
goods to the Panama railroad commissary
stores which it operates on the isthmus?
If so, what kind of goods have been so
supplied by your market, or through your
Second. Were the quality and packing
of such goods satisfactory to the Panama
Third.. Was such business secured by
individual effort, or through open com-
Fourth. If your market has not yet had
any dealings with the Panama Railroad

Hew Indictments Drawn.
Steps to this end were taken at once,
and United States District Attorney John
M. Cheney drew up new indictments at
once, unmarred by the frequent interlin-
eations, and these were indorsed in their
turn by the last grand jury.
The old indictments, however, still en-
cumbered the court dockets and had to be
cleared away. Accordingly the nolle pros-
equis we-e entered against them.
Then came the motion that the other
cases, charging the same offense and the
indictments therein being worded practi-
cally the same, though technically correct
in the matter of preparation and absence
of interlineations, as the old ones, ba
transferred to Tampa for trial.
Hence, as will be readily seen, the ac-
tion yesterday was merely to correct the
errors of the learned special prosecuting
attorney, and was in no sense a death
blow to these particular peonage cases.
The Peonage Cae.
Since the last trial of Mr. F. J. O'Hara
again ended in a complete vindication of
the defendant, and this was followed by
the exodus of the special prosecuting at-
torneys, the passing of strong resolutions
by the State Board of Trade, the Florida
Press Association, and other bodies and
the dropping, temporarily, of peonage the
early part of the week. Just what mat-
ters here there has been absolute quiet
in peonage matters, so far as court busi-
ness is concerned in Jacksonville.
So far as can be learned, the special
prosecuting officers have not yet returned
to the State, and nothing has been learned
as to whether or not they will return.
Special Peonage Investigator Hoyt is
still here, however, or was here during the
early part of the week. Just what this
special collector of alleged evidence is
doing has not been learned, his reports
not coming in shape for publication, nor
being obtainable at this end of the line.
The peonage indictments against Lynch,
Clayton, Harp and others still stand on
the docket. Even the other cases against
Mr. O'Hara, despite the fact that tw.j
juries required but seventeen minutes and
twelve minutes respectively to acquit him
of two charges, still stand on the dccket.
What the next move will be remains to he
seen, and time alone can tell what it will

in this prosperous and popular mercantile

Stephens, Mr. Blaisden, vice-president, as-
sumed the active management of the busi-
iess and became active president of the

Prepsitiot to lass Bonsa to Cover the
Cost d Such a Road.
The Jacksonville-to-the-sea road looms
nearer as the days go by.
W. J. (Motoring) Morgan returned from
a trip to Ormond and Daytona on Thurs-
day, and continues his work in the way
of investigation as to the probable cost
o fthe rod4 and the direction it should
go. He is gow satisfied that there is ma-
terial enough and to spare on the line of

The Goo04 Roads Investigating Commit-

and the next move on the part of Mr.
Morgan and those interested with him,
will be to find out if there are enough

Mr. Morgan will endeavor to complete
the work of organization next week and
Immediately after the joint conference
broke up the representatives of the train-
men met to consider the advisability of
calling a strike in order to bring the rail-
roads to terms. Just what decision was
.tached is not known tonight, as the
trainmen declined to discuss what had ta-
ken place at the meeting.
They were united, however, in declaring
that a peaceable settlement of the con-
troversy can be reached only by the gene-
ral managers offering concessions. An-
other meeting of the union men has been
scheduled for tomorrow. The outlook to-
night is that a strike will be called within
the next forty-eight hours, unless the
railroads request another conference.
P. H. Morrissey, chief of the trains-
n:ens' organization, said:
"We have been instructed by the men
we rereesent to call a strike unless the
offer of the railroads were satisfactory to
us. The vote by which this attitude was
reached, carried the strike proposition by
a tremendous majority. We are not satis-
fied and the men are not satisfied. We
are not going to ask for any more con-
ferences with the general managers. It
is up to them to prevent the men quit-

Mr. Morgan believes the bonds should
be placed at $100 each, bearing 5 per cent
interest, and to run for 20 years.
Morgan Invests Cash.
He is prepared to take $1,000 himself,
and thinks that other men can be found
sufficiently interested in the project in
Jacksonville to complete the subscription.
When that is done, a right-of-way will
be asked for, and the county commission-
ers will be asked to give toll-gate privi-
leges for five years, at the end of which
time the county will be given the option
of purchasing the road at its cost of con-
struction, with interest added.
In speaking of the roads yesterday and
the general interest in them, and what
they mean for the coming generations,
Mr. Morgan said
How Automobile Helps.
"Various highway commissioners
throughout the United States have given
the automobile credit of being the instru-
ment of quickening the good roads senti-
ment throughout the country. While the
automobile was at first looked upon as an
infliction, the progressive citizens now
recognize that out of seeming evil has
come much good, but what of the future
work that the automobile will do.
"The introduction of the automobile
means the displacement of the horse as
a beast of burden. It means the heavy
truck, and indeed nearly all transporta-
tion business in the city, will be done by
the passenger and freight automobile. It
would mean the saving of millions of dol-
lars in street paving, of millions of dollars
in street cleaning, for it is the horse and
other animals that litter up the streets,
oft-times spreading disease through the
winds blowing the refuse on the people."
TRAINMEN MAY STRIKE.
Forty-Five Thousand Men on the Eve of
Chicago, March 27.-The 45,000 train-
men of the western railroads seemed near-
er a strike tonight than at any time since
the negotiations were begun two months
ago fo: an increase of 12 per cent in
wages and a work day of nine hours. The
conference today between the representa-
tives of the men and the railroad officers
lasted four hours but was a failure in
bringing about a solution of the trouble.
The rail oads offered the men increases
of 7 per cent to passenger conductors and
10 per cent to brakemen, firemen, bag-
gagemnen and allied workers. When the
railroad officers declared their offer was
the Lest that could be made, the confer-
ence came to an end as the men by a
refe endum vote taken last week had de-
cided not to accept anything less than
their original demands.

A. B. Garetson, chief of the conductors,
also declared that no further conferences
would be held with the general managers.
Secretary Slason Thompson, of the Gen-

have not given up hope as yet of a peace-
able adjustment of the difficulty."
Late tonight it was announced that ar-
bitration under the Erdman act will be
asked for by the railroads to prevent a
strike. As a strike of the men would in-
terfere with interstate commerce, railroad
officials believe that they can prevent a
strike by asking the government to step
in and take command of the situation.

for the arbitration of labor difficulties

New York, March 28.-The Corbin
Banking Company today assigned for the
benefit of creditors to George C. Austin.
Two members of the company are George
S. Edgell and Austin Corbin. Mr. Edgell
is p-esident and Mr. Oorbin vice-president
of the Manhattan Beach Hotel and Land
Company. Mr. Austin said that a rough
Estimate placed the liabilities at $1,700,-
000, and the assets at $3,000.000. The
assignment was due to the maturing of
obligations, said he. "Times are hard and
money is high. The company owns 400
acres of land at Manhattan Beach and
Far Rockaway, which is worth $3,000,000,
but it could nto be sold today under ex-
isting conditions, for $1.500,000. You can-
not get any one to buy real estate at
present. There is other valuable real es-
tate in the South and West, but loans

A petition praying that Austin Corbin
and GCorge C. Edgell, individually and as
cortp la n $he OidRia Banking Com-
pany, be declared bankrupts, was filed in
the United States court today.
The petitioners are Isabelle H. Knott. of
Denver; Alice J. Hill, of Los Angeles, and
Alexander J. Shamburg, of New York.
The petition alleges that the Corbin Bank-
ing Company owes more than %500,000, and
mentions various sums deposited by the
three petitioners. The plea for ;he decla-
ration of the bankruptcy of RIdgell and
Corbin is made on the ground that the
filing of an assignment was in violation
of the bankruptcy act.
DeFere, Crocker & Wickes, counsel for
the petitioners in the bankruptcy proceed-
ings, said the action was taken to protect
the interests of the depositors aid other
"Some of the funds of these depositors
are tied up by the act of assignment."
said Mr. Crocker, speaking for the it'or
neys, "and they seek to know by law

The Seaboard Air Line, to improve its
facilities for handling business, has pur-
chased a large tract of land in the west-
ern part of Savannah, near the shops of
the road, and will build yards for making
up through freight trains; also a yard for
interchanging with the Central of Georgia
Railway. This will make an additional
capacity of 500 cars at that point. The
improvements will cost about $60,000.
The Seaboard will also soon receive
some substantial additions to its equip-
ment. It has orders now placed for 50
new locomotives, 4,500 freight ears and 14
passenger cars, and deliveries are soon
to be completed.
The Seaboard has also been making sur-
veys for a detour freight line around
Raleigh, N. C., and for the reduction of
curves and grades on its line between
Norlina and Hamlet, N. C. The Manufac-
turers' Record is, however, officially in-
formed that it is not yet decided to begin
this work. The detour line around Ra-
leigh would run from a point about eight
miles east of Raleigh to a point three
irilea west of the city. This would be
a short cut of about nine miles length,
whi-h would eliminate some heavy grades.
The construction of 14 miles of passing
* rack between Raleigh and Hamlet was
completed during the past year, and a
contract was recently given to the Propet
Contracting Co., of Charlotte, N. C.. to
build five miles of passing track between
Raleigh and Norlina. Other improve-
ments such as the building of block sta-
tions and interlocking switches, have been
made in connection with this work.

GOOD ROADS BILL.
Bill That Will Go Before the Approaching
Orlando, March 23.-The State Associa-
tion of County Commissioners of the
State has done much valuable work for
good roads i nthe State. It has a stand-
ing committee on legislation for good
roads, and last November a majority of
the committee met in Orlanudo to consider
needed legislation. The members present
were H. H. Dickson, the chairman of the
county board of commissioners; W. L.
Palmer and H. K. Fuller. This majority
agreed on the main features of a bill to
be submitted to the legislature soon to
convene. The prominent provisions are
First-The creation of a state commis-
sion of three competent and skilled men
who shall be known as the State Road
Commissioners. The State authorities
j.hall give Control of all able-bodied con-
victs to these State road commissioners
for building State roads. The State re-
tains absolute control of the convicts, reg-
ulates their work, protects their health,
insures humane treatment and proper pro-
Second-The bill provides for the em-
ployment of a competent State engineer,
and the location and building of State
roads, these State roads shall run east,
south, north and west through the State.
Third-Provisions are made by which
counties not traversd by the State roads
shall, if they desire, have aid by the State
convicts in constructing county roads con-
necting with the State roads.
Fou:th-The bill also provides for estab-
lishing a State farm for disabled State
The bill works the gradual but sure
abolishment of the present convict lease
system. It puts the road question to the
front, and makes it the paramount busi-
ness question of State. It takes the con-
victs out of polities, and removes them
from competition with free labor. It pro-
vides for fair and humane treatment of the
convicts at all times, shuts out the spec-
ulation in leasing them and makes abuses
The committee will submit their sugges-
tions to the legislature along with other
'ills on the subject of good roads. It will
be observed the suggested bill is in some
features along lines of the MacWilliams

missioners will, it is believed, stand by

DRY KILN MOORE GETS PATENT.
Letters patent were issued on March
Oth to the L. Moore Dry-Kiln Co., of this
city, by the United States Commissioner
of Patents, F. I. Allen, for certain novet
improvements in dry-kilns which will be
of interest to: sawmill men an uver the
The inventor, known everywhere as
Dry-Kiln Moore, has gotten four L'niteu
States patents on dry-kilns within the
past ten years in addition to two Ca-
nadian patents, making improvements
each time on the previous patent. The
ast patent issued relates to the founda-
tions or trestle work of the kiln, which
supports the tracks and pipe in the kiln.
It provides for iron foundations instead of
wood, and it is so constructed that it can
he installed almost as cheap as a wood
foundation, and arranged and graced in
such a substantial manner that it is im-
possible for it to give way or be affected
by the excessive heat and required re-
pairs, as is the case with a wood kiln.
Another feature of great advantage is
that it enables the mill man to have a
practically fire-proof kiln and secure
cheaper insurance, where the building is
constructed of brick or artificial stone and
plastered overhead and with the iron
foundation covered by the present inven-
tion, it does away with the wood work
entirely. A kiln built in this way will
last from fifteen to twenty years, or as
long as any part of the mill and without
practically any repairs having to he made.
JENNINGS FOR GOVERNOR.

Pensacola. March 27.-Hon. T. A. Jen-

emphatic denial of a special sent out from

Jacksonville, which purported to state
upon authority that Mr. Jennings would
announce his candidacy Sunday morning
in the Journal. He stated that he had no
intention of announcing his candidacy,
though intimated that after he returned
from a business trip through certain por-
tions of the State he might have some-
thing to say. Mr. Jennings has been
urped by many prominent men in various
sections of the State to enter the c
paign for governor, and he is also d
in receipt of many letters promising i

a m I
Prospectus Florida Immigration Number of the Weekly Industrial
The INDUSTRIAL RECORD PUBLISHING COMPANY will issue at some date on or about the
first of May next, a special number, to be entitled "The Florida Immigration Number."
This edition will comprise something like 100 pages, carefully compiled and edited, and will be inter-
estingly illustrated, all illustrations bearing upon the subject in question and designed for the purpose of
attracting to the State of Florida desirable immigrants, both from the domestic immigrant centres and
from foreign countries.
It is the purpose of the Industrial Record Co. to issue an edition of fully 50,000 copies, and to circu-
late it by its regular channels of circulation, augmented by the industrial departments of various railroads
coming into the South, and through individual and corporate interests throughout Florida which may
have their own individual sources of distribution. It will be mailed to all the newspapers of the country,
with requests for favorable mention, and will be advertised through the leading magazines and farm jour-
nals, to be sent upon request to interested parties who may have their attention thus directed to Florida
and to its advantages from a farming, commercial and industrial standpoint.
In order to attract the attention of those people who may not read the English language, an epitome
of the entire edition will be printed in several languages, namely: Uerman, Italian, IScandinavian, Rus-
sian, and as many others as we may deem advisable.
The edition, from an editorial and compilation standpoint will cover all subjects setting forth the ad-
vantages of Florida to the capitalist, immigrant and the homeseeker, and will have a large number of
special articles by well known authorities on the various phases of the immigrant situation. Among these
will be articles by Commissioner Watson, of South Carolina, telling of his visits to Europe to get immi-
grants and the establishment of an immigrant line between European points and South Carolina ports;
an article setting forth the means used by other States in the South in inducing immigration-the officials,
amount of money expended, etc.; an article covering the work being done by the railroads in inducing do-
mestic immigration to the Southeastern States. The edition will also contain an article from the Gover-
nor of the State of Florida upon the subject in question; from the Department of Agriculture, giving
detailed and tabulated information as to Florida lands, advantages, opportunities, etc. It will contain
among other things an article on the effort now being made (and we trust will have been accomplished by
the date of the issue) for the establishment in Florida of a Department of Immigration, which matter will
come before the approaching Florida Legislature. It will contain articles from the heads of various com-
mercial organizations in Florida, notably from Mr. Rawls. President of the Florida State Board of Trade;
Mr. Fuller, of the Tampa Board of Trade; Capt. Garner, of the Jacksonville Board of Trade; UoL W. P.
Corbett, Chairman of the Immigration Committee of the Jacksonville Board of Trade, Mr. Edwin Brob-
ston, whose efforts are well known in immigration work, and others. It will contain in a concise, paragraph
form "one thousand facts about Florida" for the quick reader who wants to know all about the State be-
fore visiting it. It will set forth the advantages of specific localities for specific purposes; for instance, the
fruit section, the vegetable section, the general farming section, and the opportunity es offered by Florida
today for the location here of large maunfactories and smaller industries of all kinds. It will containn facts
of interest regarding the various tqwns and cities of the State, their adaptability and desirabiity, matters
of transportation, etc. It will deal with every phase of the labor question to attract a sirable labor to this
All in all, the edition is planned upon a most elaborate scale and is planned to cover every point of
interest that may appeal to the man who has his eye on Florida and to the man who is looking for a
desirable farming, manufacturing or business location in the South.
The editor-in-chief of the Industrial Record, Mr. J. A. Hollomon, will have directorship of all articles
prepared for this special number, and the detail preparation will be in the hands of a staff of competent
writers, already employed for that purpose.
This "Immigration Edition of the Industrial Record" will no doubt mark an epoch in trade journal-
ism in the South, and it is fitting that the Industrial Record should issue an edition of this kind, in view of
the fact that it is the exponent of the leading industrial and commercial organizations of the State, be-
ing the official organ of the Turpentine Operators' Association, the Southeastern Cane Growers' Aso-
ciation, endorsed by the Georgia-Florida Sawmill Association, etc.
In preparing the data for this special Immigration Edition, much attention will be given in gather-
ing facts and figures which will prove valuable to the energetic and progressive organizations and private
citizens in getting passed by the coming Legislature a bill creating an Immigration Department and in ask-
ing the Legislature to appropriate a liberal fund for carrying on this great work.
The Industrial Record will work hand in glove with the Florida State Board of Trade, and individual
boards of trade of the State, in their efforts to successfully solve the question of increasing the population
of the State with a desirable citizenship.
