Brobston & Co., a New Firm; Suc-
ceeds Brobston Fendig & Co.
An Observant Wisconsin Man Finds
No Traces of Peonage.
The well known real estate firm of
Brobston, Fendig & Co. has been succeed-
ed in Jacksconville by Brobston & Co.,
Col. Edwin Brobston, the senior member
of the old firm being the senior member
S of the new firm. The change does not
effect the status of the business in the
slightest, save that the business will
possibly be enlarged and the volume in-
creased under the new organization. No
man in Florida deserves greater success
"Personally, I believe that the future
brings to the South three great cities,
cities of world-fame. These will be At-
lanta, Jacksonville and Tampa. I have
cast my lot in with Florida, and I sin-
cerely believe that Jacksonville is going
to be the great city, or one of the great
ciL.es of the South of the future.
"Years ago, before Brobston, Fendig &
Co. were personally interested in Florida,
we were doing a big realty business here.
Following interview with Mr. George F.
Peabody on his return from Florida is
printed in the Appleton (Wis.) Post:
George Peabody has returned home from
an extended sojourn in Florida. He de-
clares that this has been a star winter
for the tourists, there having been no
rain since November until Monday morn-
ing, April 1. Sunshine every day. The
orange growers, however, have had a hard
fight to keep their trees alive. Except

Brobston, for certainly the commercial
and industrial interests of Florida have
no greater friend, or a friend whose ef-
forts are more availing in the upbuilding
of the State.
Col. Edwin Br bston, when asked about
the change in firms said, among other
"Yes, the change has come, and it is
with the sincerest regret that I lose the
brilliancy of Mr. Fendig, my life-long
friend. .But the change that has come

seen years ago.
became necessary for one of ous to come
here. The lot fell to me. As the busi-
ness increased, the need of a Florida
company became more and nure manifest,
and finally came the change announced
"Mr. Fendig retires, and my brother
takes his place. Our aim shall be the
old one, to give Brobston & Co. such a
name in the realty world that the entire
business world, knowing that Brobston &
Co. are endorsing a certain section or
movement, will know that it is a coming

where freely watered the leaves are curled

Generally speaking, Florida is prosper-
ous, more prosperous than ever in her his-
tory. Hotels were filled and during the
height of the season it was difficult to get
accommodations at the more popular
Asked as to which was his favorite spot
in Florida, Mr. Peabody replied that Bis-
cayne bay and the Florida keys were as
near perfection as any spot in the world

miliar with the waters can imagine their

perpetual interest to the lover of the beau-
tiful. The dark green of the islands or
keys, as they are called, that are scat-
tered over the water add to the beauty of
It was a revelation to Mr. Peabody and
his party to see the work of the East
Coast Railway extension from Miami to
Key West, a distance of 100 miles where
a railway is being built from island to isl-
and across the sea. No work of the pres-
ent day except the Panama canal com-
pares with it for difficulties to overcome
and enormous expense, and when one real-
izes that this tremendous work is being
done by one man, not a dollar of the
bonds or stock being owned except by
Mr. Flagler, it assumes a magnitude of,
operation that eclipses anything that has
ever been accomplished. Arches of con-
crete with foundations from 30 to 60 feet
in the sea making a viaduct 20 miles long
is one example of hundreds of like prop-
ositions met with in this work. No de-
scription could give any idea of the diffi-
culties met with. For example, there is
not a drop of fresh water to be found
within 100 miles north of Key West, ex-
cept rain water. Every bit of water for
the dredges, steamboats, locomotives and
5,000 men has to be brought by steamers.
There is a perpetual line of these boats
running night and day pushing two or
three barges, each carrying 5 to B tanks,
each tank holding 5,000 barrels.
Mr. Peabody was asked if he saw any
evidence of peonage along the work of
the East Coast Railway Company. He
replied that he had heard nothing on that
subject and had not read the magazine
articles until after his return from the
first five month's cruise among the keys
and believed he and his friends could pro-
nounce all of these stories as absolute and
unqualified falsehoods, inasmuch as they
visited a large number, in fact, the prin-
cipal camps of the extension work; saw
the men at work; saw them at rest; saw
them eating and also noted the perfect
sanitary conditions of their camps. Mr.
Peabody recalls a discussion with the first
assistant engineer in charge of the work
as to the cost of feeding the men. He
stated that the average cost for food per
man was 66 cents per day or 22 cents
per meal. The quality of the food was
discussed and comparison was made with
that of Mr. Peabody and his friends on the
yacht and was found to be practically the
same, 22 cents per meal per man. The
comment was made that undoubtedly the
men working on the East Coast extension
line never lived so well in their lives.
Again, Mr. Peabody said, we had more
than a dozen opportunities of seeing the

4 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
FLORIDA GOOD ROADS LAW.
A Satisfactory Measure Likely to Come
Out of the Committee Room.
"Motoring" Morgan, of New York, one
of the country's most famous good roads
advocates, has just returned to Jackson-
villa from a several days' visit to the
State Legislature at Tallahassee, and he
is inclined to the belief that some de-
sirable good roads measure will be enacted.
Regarding this matter, he said:
"The legislators all seemed to be en-
thusiastic for good roads.
"Some of them are not well informed
as to the good results that have followed
the introduction of good roads in other
States and the tremendous increase in the
value of land after the introduction of
"It seems to me that a number of good
roads enthusiasts should go to Tallahas-
see when the bill is introduced, and assist
in giving the legislators all the informa-
tion possible, and thus help through a
suitable good roads bill.
"If they cannot go to Tallahassee, then
it would be well for every voter that be-
lieves in good roads, to write his repre-
sentative.in both houses, urging them .o
give the bill their careful consideration
"This I feel sure will have a good effect,
as the representatives of the people usu-
ally do what the people wish done.
"Mr. W. A. McWilliams, of St. Johns,
introduced his bill the day I reached Tal-
lahassee, and had it referred to the good
roads committee, of which he is a mem-
ber, preferring to see what the other bills
contained that will be also offered and
"That showed Mr. McWilliams' unsel-
fishness, as he does not want to make
aepital out of what he knows the State
needs worse than he needs additional glory
or praise for his efforts to get good goads.
"The Hon. I. L. Farris, of Duval, told
me that he was heartily in favor of a
committee bill, and his bill would soon
be introduced, and he would ask that it
be referred to the committee.
"The Hon. John B. Parkinson, chair-
man of the good roads committee, will in-
troduf his bill, and-that also will be re-
ferred to the committee.
"The Orlando Board of Trade also has a
hill. and they will be asked to have it
referred to the committee.
"Out of these combined bills should come
a splendid single measure that the people
of Florida will welcome, and it matters not
what legislation may be passed at Talla-
hasaee this spring, no measure, I feel sure

A. S. Mann and C. H. Mann, in sending to

OBSERVE "ARBOR DAY."
President Teddy Issues a Proclamation
to That Effect
Washington, April 14.-President Roose-
velt has addressed "To the School Chil-
dren of the United States" a message on
the significerne of Arbor Day, which, dur-
ing the month of April, is celebrated in
many of the States. It follows:
"To the School Children of the United
States-Arbor day (which means simply
'tree day') is now observed in every State
in our Union-and mainly in the schools.
At various times from January to Decem-
ber, but chiefly in this month of April,
you give a day or part of a day to special
exercise and perhaps to actual tree plant-
ing, in recognition of the importance of
trees to us as a nation, and of what they
yield in adornment, comfort and useful
products to the communities in which you
"It is well that you should celebrate
your arbor day thoughtfully, for within
your lifetime the nation's need of trees
will become serious. We of an older gen-
e.ation can get along with what we have,
though with growing hardship; but in
your full manhood and womanhood you
will want what nature once so bountifully
supplied, and man so thoughtlessly de-
stroyed; and because of this want you
will reproach us not for what we have
used, but for what we have wasted.
*For the nation as for the man or
woman and the boy or girl, the road to
success in the right use of what we have
and the improvement of present oppor-
tunity. If you neglect to prepare your-
selves now for the duties and responsibili-
ties which will fall upon you later, if you
do not learn the things which you will
need to know when your school days are
over, you will suffer the consequences. So
any nation which in its youth lives only
for the day, reaps without sowing and con-
sumes without husbanding, must expect
the penalty of the prodigal whose labor
could with difficulty find him the bare
means of life.
"A people without children would face
a hopeless future; a country without
trees is almost as hopeless; forests which
are so used that they cannot renew them-
selves will soon vanish, and with them
all their* benefits. A true forest is not
merely a storehouse full of wood, but, as
it were, a factory of wood, and at the
same time a reservoir of water When
you help to preserve our forests or to
plant new ones, you are acting the part
of good citizens The value of forestry
deserves, therefore, to be taught in the
schools which aim to make good citizens
of you If you arbor day exercises help
you to realize what benefits each one of
you receive from the forest, and how by
your assistance these benefits may con-
tinue, they will serve a good end.
"(Signed). THEODORE ROOSEVELT."
FREIGHT RATE AGITATION.
Owing to the recent agitation of freight
rates, great attention has been attracted
to Savannah as a desirable business loca-
tion. For instance, in the shoe business,
nearly fifty per cent of the entire shoe
trade for the South passes through Sa-
vannah, and the inland jobbers and manu-
facturers are thus compelled to pay water
rates to there and then rail rates to their
warehouses, besides the expense of trans-
ferring from the boats to the cars.
The Rosenhein Shoe Company, who
manufacture the celebrated Hub Shoe,
showed great wisdom in locating at Sa-
vannah. They save at least two freight
rates; their warehouses are back of the
docks, and all necessary is to unload the
hoats into their sto:e rooms. They offset
quite a big saving here, and have an ad-
vantage over their inland competitors, for
they can afford to put this money into the
qIuality of their shoes.
It is said that this concern has made
greater strides and progress than any
other house in the South, and their won-
derful growth is no doubt due to their

of the other seaports, have also shown the
benefit of this saving in freights and the
closeness in every line of merchandise

that the advantage of water rates cuts
quite a figure in the competitive bidding
for trade. This, no doubt, accounts largely
for the general agitation of freight rates,

The Atlanta Constitution.
Recently Edwin Brobston was in At-
lanta, in connection with the work oi
settling up the realty business with Mr.
Fendig. TWhile in the Georgia capital
he was interviewed (and no doubt wined
and dined) by E. C. Bruffey, one of the
oldest and best known newspaper men of
...e South, and writing of the Jackson-
ville real estate man, Mr. Bruffey, in the
Atlanta Constitution, says:
"Among those registered at the Kim-
ball was Edwin Brobston, one of the pro-
gressive, energetic and successful business
men, up to a short time ago, of Bruns-
wick-by-the-sea, but now a -prominent
worker of Jacksonville, the metropolis of
the land of flowers.
"And over that autograph many stu-
dents of hotel registers puzzled yester-
day. Ed. Callaway and the new-made
Floridian being about the only two who
could work out the puzzle.
"Ed Brobston was once a newspaper
man, and during those days stories were
being told of Horace Greeley's handwrit-
ing, and that of Spinner, whose name
made good United States treasury notes
a decade ago. In many a print shop copy
in shorthand was about as easy as was
much of the manuscript turned in. It be-
came a fad with some editors to see how
miserably they could write, and in that
fad Ed Brobston managed to spoil a hand-
writing that was once copy plate, so says
Ed Calaway, of the Kimball, known also
to fame as the only author of a publi-
cation on hotel register entries, a book
given by the compiler to his friends only
as a souvenir.
"'I knew the time,' said Mr. Callaway,
as he was deciphering the hieroglyphics
for a student, 'when that man put his
some other editors of whom I have known
he thought it was the proper thing to see
how badly lie could write, and then when
)le went out of the newspaper business
and tried to write a neat hand he found
lie had ldst the art. Now that's all there
is to it. You will find all about it in my
book on page 13.' "
Visit to Atlanta.
"1 came up to Atlanta," said Mr. Brob-
ston, "to attend a meeting of the board of
directors of the Tallulah Falls Railroad."
For a number of years Mr. Brobston
has been the personal representative of
George L. Prentiss ,of New York, who
owns the road, and who is now pushing
its extension right along to Franklin, N.
"'Then, too," continued Mr. Brobston,
--1 have been busy today inspecting some
land out near College Park, which I and
some Florida friends have just purchased,
and which we propose developing during
the coming summer. We bought a tract
of 300 acres near that delightful suburb
and within a few months we will begin
grading and will build a number of houses
with a view to making that immediate
section still more inviting to those seeking
suburban homes. As soon as we get the
work of improvement well under way
I shall come to Atlanta and remain here
several months, directing personally the
finishing touches and possibly see myself
to the sales, if any are made. But the
truth is we are not at all anxious to sell
in anything like a hurry for no one real-
izes better than we do that real estate
near Atlanta is constantly on the increase
and that the longer we hold the more
freiluent will be the demands made upon
us by those wanting homes and the more
remunerative these sales will be."

of Mr. Brobston, especially since moving
to Florida, and few men in the South have
given that subject more thorough and
devoted study than he. Not long ago
lie was invited to Savannah by the cham-
ber of commerce to discuss a plan for
launching an immigration movement in
Georgia and the present effective organi-
zation is working along the lines suggest-
ed by him in that address.
Just now Mr. Brobston is bending his
energies towards an enactment by the
Florida legislature of some practical meas-
ure looking to encouragement of immigra-
tion and a wider advertising of Florida's
"In my opinion." remarked Mr. Brob-
ston, "Atlanfa, Jacksonville and Tampa
are destined to become the three great
cities of the South and that too in the
very near future. I say that after having
given the situation and the conditions
existing now a complete exhaustive study.
"Those three cities are in a line to
get the most direct benefit from the isth-
mian canal and from the development of
Cuba. At present there is under contract
and under construction more than $12,000,-
000 of improvements."

Negroes in the Civil Service; Warn-
ing to Southern Whites.
"The only chance to prevent the United
States Civil Service from becoming Afri-
canized is for the white people of the
South to become alive to this situation
S and to take an interest in civil service."
This was the casual but deliberate state-
ment of Hon. John A. McIlhenny, recently
appointed United States civil service com-
missioner by President Roosevelt, and it
was the expression and opinion of a South-
ern man, a Louisianaian. Senator Mcll-
henny believes the time has come when
the Southern people must arouse them-
selves to this issue.
"The negroes of the South are alive to
this great opportunity for them," added
Commissioner McIlhenny. "The blacks
see in civil service a great opportunity, and
they jump at the chance to take the ex-
aminations and get into the government
service in this manner, thereby avoiding
manual labor. But the white people of
the South are standing aloof, and for that
reason I am making every effort to sound
this note of warning. To my mind it is
absolutely essential that the white people
of the South work to retain their positions
in the civil service and to stand for these
examinations. As I said, it is the only
chance to prevent the Africanizing of the
civil service. I propose to make special
effort to arouse in our Southern people
the feeling that civil service is a worthy
and honorable service for our people to
"The whites, through prejudice or igno-
rance, refuse to take the examinations,
while the negroes, inspired with the hope
of getting away from hard manual labor,
jump at them. Therefore the burden rests
not with the civil service, but with the
white people, who fail to take advantages
Commissioner Mellhenny referred to re-
cent examinations held at Dallas and Ather
points in Texas, and at Alexandria and
Baton Rouge, in Louisiana. At Alexan-
dria and Baton Rouge, only negroes took
the examinations. Not a single white per-
son applied, and of that list of cities only
at Dallas did the whites exceed the blacks
"There is no politics in the civil service,"
* declared Mr. Mellhenny. "That was one
of the things for which I was appointed.
Neither is there politics in the civil ser-
vice commission, nor in its appointees in
the different departments. Wherever a
charge of political preferment is made
against a head of a department, it is in-
vestigated at once, no matter where it is
found or whom It affects.
"There is no longer what was once
known as the life tenure. A man enters
the service on a probationary period of
six months. If he proves satisfactory he
will be retained. But even then. after
receiving final appointment, if he should
not fll the bill he may be discharged at
any time for cause. Therefore, his reten-
tioq depends upon the supervising officials,
superior official, and not only has he the
authority, but it is his duty to dismiss
an incompetent man."
Mr. Mellhenny left for Washington yes-
terday, after two weeks in Louisiana,
where he was interested in conducting the
rivers and harbors committee through
the State, he having been largely instru-
mental in bringing the congressional party
to the State. After getting matters
straightened up in Washintgon, Commis-
sioner Mellhenny will begin a tour of the
South May 15th, to try and arouse inter-
est among the Southern white people in
the civi Iservice. He will start in North
Carolina, and visit practically every South-
In his talks and addresses on that tour
he will explain that the Civil Service
Commission is absolutely nonpolitical;
that applicants are judged entirely upon
their merits; that the criticism and the
idea that there is an effort being made
by the administration or the Civil Ser-
vice Commission to Africanize any single
department is erroneous; that the com-
mission deals with the applicant with im-
partiality, and if the white people refrain
from taking the examinations, then the
burden of the situation rests with them.

COTTON GOODS RATES.
Hearing Before the Interstate Commerce
Washington, April 19.-Rates on cotton
goods from southern points to the Pa-
cific coast, China and Japan was again
the subject of the hearing before the In-
terstate Commerce Commission today. J.1
Southall. representing the complainants.
nmde a formal motion for the postpone-
ment of the hearing until he could secure
the defendant railroad and steamship
companies with a subpoena duces teeum
to compel the production of the minutes
of the conferences held in 1899, which re-
sulted in the deal and agreement to raise
the rates. The defendant companies fi-
nally agreed to produce these minutes to-
morrow, and the hearing was continued.
Mr. Southall said to the commission that
he intended to show by the minutes of
these conferences that they were partici-
pated in by railroad men, notwithstanding
the denial of this during testimony yes-
terday. The railroad representatives re-
plied that the minutes would not show
the presence of railroad men at the con-
ferences, and claimed. further, that no
agreement was entered into by them re-
garding the rates in question. It is claim-
ed that if an agreement was reached be-
tween the steamship lines it is beyond the
jurisdiction of the Interstate Commerce
Commission. Secretary Ayers, of the
China and Japan Trading Company, ex-
plained the exact method of purchases,
prices of goods and rates paid for ship-
ment, both from New York to the Orient,
via the Suez canal, and from the Pa-
cific coast. The defense rested their case been reduced from $1.85 per one hundred
after the testimony of Lincoln Green, pounds to San Francisco, to $1.15, the
through the traffic manager of the South- present rate. The commission took the
ern Railway. Mr. Green told tie com. case under advisement and indicated that
mission that the rates complained of were
fixed on an exceedingly low basis, because its conclusions would be announced to-
of water competition, and that it had morrow.

DEATH OF JAMES H. ECKLES. p
In the sudden death at his home in t
Chicago this week, of James H. Eckles,
president of the Commercial National tc
Bank of that city, and former Comptroller PI
of the Currency under President Cleve- d
land, the business world loase one of its d
ablest men and certainly one of the best 0
examples of the quiet, honest, conserva- bh
tive men of affairs. Eckles was in every m
respect a national character, or
The death of Mr. Eckles came on the ar
eve of a breakfast party which he had
planned for a number of friends and rela- to
tives. Judge K. M. Landis, of the fede- w
ral district court; Mrs. Landis, Mr. and g
Mrs. B. MI. Gary of New York; George le
M. Eckles, a brother, and his wife and S1
others were to have been guests. d
James A. Eckles, of Princeton, Ill., fa- sp
their of James H. Eckles, died recently. ai
On the day of the death of the older m
Eckles, the son was a host of former in
President Grover Cleveland. The former je
president and Mr. Eckles were at break-
fast when news of the father's death was
received at the Eckles residence. n,
Mr. Eckles was kept in ignorance of the re
fact for several hours until Mr. Cleveland (
had left the city. A
It developed that the person who was it
trying to communicate with Mr. Eckles la
over the telephone-the ringing of which cr
led to the discovery of the death-was in
George M Eckles, a brother. Half an hour of
later the brother was called to his own w
telephone and informed of the death. cl
A postmortem examination was held
id a statement issued giving the cause of
cath as organic heart disease. The fun-
al will be held Tuesday afternoon at the
fourth Presbyterian Church. Rev. Wil-
am B Notman will deliver the oration.
he body will be placed in a vault until
ie return of Mrs. Eckles and daughter,
hen a private funeral will be held.
Mr. Eckles was a stockholder and was
eminent in the management of several
incerns, among them being the Hewitt
manufacturing Company, the Union Trac-
on Company; the Featherstone Foundry
id Machine Company; the Chicago Real
state Trustees' Association; the Allis-
halmers Company; the American and

IMMIGRANTS FOR GEORGIA.
Hon. G. Gunby Jordan, of Columbus,
a., president of the Eagle and Phoenix
manufacturing Company, and head of the
eorgia Immigration Association, is en
ute to Europe, having sailed from New
ork on the Kaiser William H., of the
orth German Lloyd line on the 9th inst.
Hon. Hoke Smith, governor-elect of
eorgia, is also en route to the old coun-
y, going to aid and co-operate with
resident Jordan in carrying out plans of
ke State Immigration Association looking
the securing of a sufficient supply of
rst-class European laborers to meet the
resent urgent demands in Georgia.
President Jordan has gone on this per-
mal tour at the arnest solicitation of
le executive committee of the association
nd Georgia manufacturers and business
en generally are confidently anticipating
eat results from his visit. Mr. Jordan,
ho was only recently elected president
Sthe State organization, has been vice-
resident of the association since it was
irmed and one of the prime movers in
ie cause of State immigration.
Being head of one of the largest cot-
in mills in the South, Mr. Jordan is
possibly better posted on the labor con-
tiones than any other one man in Geor-
a, his big mills having suffered much
luring the past year from the dearth of
operatives. Mr. Jordan is opposed to
singing over any and all classes of im-
igrants to this country, and insists that
ily high class and desirable laborers
e wanted in Georgia.
While Gov. Smith is strongly committed
white supremacy in this State, it is
ell known that he believes in exercising
ood judgment and discretion in the se-
ction of the future citizens of this
tate. No man is better equipped for
ding the State great service in this re-
iect than Governor Smith. He has given
ready careful study to this, and supple-
enting it with a tour of observation and
quiry, will make his advice on the sub-
Foreign Corporations in Georgia.
Of the foreign corporations doing busi-
ss in Georgia through agents who have
gistered with Secretary of State Phil
ok ,as required by law passed last
ugust, there are 484, with a total cap-
alization of $2,479,545,681. .Under the
w imposing an occupation tax on all
corporations doing business in the State,
accordance with the amount of capital
Each the total income for the State
ill be $30,250. About 3.000 corporations
artered by the State have registered.
The registration represents probably less
than half of the corporations doing busi-
ness in the State.
GEORGIA ELECTRIC LINE.
It will Run from Macon to Albany, g99
The Georgia department of State has
issued a charter to the Macon, Americus
and Albany railway, a corporation that
proposes to build a line of electric road
from Macon to Albany, 190 miles in
length. The following well-known Geor-
gians are the incorporators: W. J. Mas-
see, M. Felton Hatcher, J.. T. Moore, M.
H. Massee, M. J. Hatcher, J. N. Neel and
D. W. Davis of Macon; N. J. Cruger of
Albany; J. C. Walker, of Marshallville;
A. C. Riley. of Fort Valley. The com-
pany is capitalized at $200,000. An in-
terurban line which will connect Atlanta
with Marietta. Powder Springs, Douglas-
ville, Roswell, Alphaetta, Cumming and
Gainesville, has been planned by a number
of Atlanta, Marietta and Gainesville cap-
italists and well-known promoters living
in the towns along the proposed line.
The official plans of the promoters have
not been announced.
THOMASVILLE TO QUINCY.
New Line to Come Into a Prosperous
A dispatch from Thomasville, Ga., con-
tains the following interesting facts:
It has been authoritatively announced
taat the board of directors of the Mexican
Gulf Railroad Company will build a line
from Thomasville to Quincy, Fla., a dis-
tance of about forty-five miles, on the
condition that reasonable support is given
them along the line in regard to the se-
curing of right of way and other neces-
sary things of minor importance.
This line of road will traverse one of
the richest sections of South Georgia and
North Florida, and will give a means of
direct communication to the North, via
Thomasville and the Atlantic Coast Linle.
It is understood on good authority that
the work will be begun in the immediate
future, terminal property for. tracks and
passenger station having already been
purchased at the Thomasville end of the
It is planned ultimately to build the
line to Indian Pass, a point on the Apa-
lachicola Bay, that being one of the best
deep water harbors on the Gulf of Mexico.
From this end it will extend northeasterly
to Sparks, Adel or some point on the line
of the Georgia Southern and Florida Rail-
There are immense tracts of timber all
along the proposed route, heavy sections
of long leaf pine being the principal va-
riety, though there is a considerable quan-
tity of cypress and cedar within easy ac-
cess of the line. .
The entire length of the road when
completed will be about one hundred and
fifty miles, and will furnish a direct
means to water communication for all
points on the Gulf of Mexico and the
This line, with the Tampa Northern,
which is being built by the owners of
the Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlantic
system, will make Thomasville the great-
est railroad center in that section of the
State of Georgia, and it is likely that the
frwn will grow more rapidly than in any

"I am in favor of both national and
State regulations, and I also believe that
public ownership on this subject I have
pointed out that because of the danger of
centralization in ownership by the federal
government of all the lines, I prefer a
system in which the federal government
will be confined to the necessary trunk
lines, and the ownership of the rest of the
lines be left to the States. This, however,
is not an immediate question; at least,
I am not sure that the people are ready
to consider that question the interest is
centered in regulation. As an advocate of
regulation of the strictest sort, I can
say to you that there is no danger what-
ever that this regulation will be carried to
the point of preventing a reasonable re-
turn on money invested in the railroads
of the country. And I also assure you
that whenever public ownership is adopt-
ed by the States or by the nation, the
stockholders may expect to receive a price
at least equal to the value of the physical
properties of the road; but no such assur-
ance ought to be necessary, because the
public has shown no disposition to reduce
railroad earnings to a point which would
deny a reasonable return.
"I have contended that the present
value of the railroads should be ascer-
tained by the Interstate Commerce Com-
mission and the commissions of the va-
rious States, in order that investors may
know when they are buying stock of in-
trinsic value, and when they are being
"I think I can speak for those who
believe in regulation, and I know that
there is not, and never has been, danger
of injustice to the owners of the rail-
roads, and if I can speak for those who
believe that the ultimate solution of the
railroad is to be found in public ownership,
I can say that there is no disposition to
confiscate railroad property, even if the
courts would permit it."
An Observant Wisconsin Man Finds No
Traces of Peonage.

men at work and the comment was made
among ourselves that the only men that
really worked were the mechanics and the
higher officials. These men were practi-
cally worked to death, not only working
all day but far into the night, and even
as late as two o'clock in the morning. It
was rather amusing after reading the yel-
low magazine articles to recall having
seen four men take 15 minutes to move a
railroad tie 8 or 10 feet. The hours for
work according to the class of work range
from 8 to 10 hours. The food was equal
to that of a northern lumber camp or bet-
ter. The men had good beds, and every
sanitary precaution was taken. One of the
chief engineers, whom we entertained on
our vacht, in answer to a question regard-
ing sickness said they knew nothing what-
ever of sickness-neither he nor any of the
two or three hundred men in that camp
had any use for a doctor or medicine.
From observation and conversation with
the officials (and this, mind you, before we
had any suspicion that charges had been
made or were to be made against the
company for ill treatment of its men) we
became satisfied that in all the history of
employment of labor, never was an em-
ployer more imposed upon than the East
Coast Railway by their common laborers.
They had brought thousands of white men
from New York and the East down there
who engaged themselves not for the pur-
pose of work, but to get down South
without cost and then desert the job. In-
stance after instance was told of starting
from some Northern city with a hundred
men, more or less, and when ready to
board the train at Jacksonville to have
but ten or a dozen men left. The only
class of common labor that they coud rely
upon at all were the negroes from Nassau
and the Bermudas. It is true that the
work is not inviting except for a sober and
industrious man who wants to save his
money. Such men could save their entire
wages as there are no ways of spending
money, no towns within a hundred miles
and no means of getting to them except
by leaving the work. As far as I could
see, said Mr. Peabody, there was not the
slightest restraint upon these men and
every day there would be a steamboat
load of men deserting their work and be-
ing carried north by their employers in
their own steamers. The pay of common
labor is $1.50 a day and board with trans-
portation. Mechanics get from $2 to $4
a day and board, according to their skill,
and in conversation with a number of the
higher paid mechanics, men of intelligence,
a.i spoke highly of their employers, which
would make it reasonable to say that all
of this peonage stuff that is filling the
magazines is on a par with the worst of
yellow journalism. It is disgraceful that
such falsehoods should be published and
inclines one to the conviction that most
everything from Ida Tarbell and Thomas
Lawson down must be imaginative, sensa-
tionable and unreliable.
Key West was touched by Mr. Peabody
and his party on their yachting cruise.
Mr. Peabody says Key West is the dirtiest
and most ill-smelling place he ever saw.
Out of a population of 20,000, one-half are
employed in the cigar factories which is
a very extensive industry. Indeed, it is

Speaking of street and public improve-

blush to think of Appleton. Here were
miles of beautifully paved streets, splen-

pride and good citizenship that must con-

12 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Prospectus Florida Immigration Number of the Weekly Industrial
The INDUSTRIAL RECORD PUBLISHING COMPANY will issue at some date on or about the
let of June 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 i 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: German, Italian, Scandinavian, 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, eta.; 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; Col. 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 wil! contain facts
of interest regarding the various towns and cities of the State, their adaptability and desirability, matters
of transportation, etc. It will deal with every phase of the labor question to attract a wirable 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 offeial organ of the Turpentine Operators' Association, the Southeastern Cane Growers' Asso-
ciation, endorsed by the Georgia-Florida Sawmill Association, etc.
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
)f the State with a desirable citizenship

ally the packages to be filled with the
liquid and solid output of the plant are
manufactured at some cooperage shop in
a nearby community and hauled to the
plant, but some of the larger distilleries
have a plant for making packages adja-
cent to them.
The cuts or incisions made in the pine
tree are frequently so much larger and
deeper than is necessary that the life of
the tree is considerably shortened, while
a large quantity of the sap has been
wasted by the leakage of receptacles used
to gather it. Recently the bureau of for-
estry of the government has been inves-
tigating the industry with the view of
introducing more economical process, and
already the benefit of its work is very
apparent. It has been instructing the
turpentine operators in what is known as
the "cup and gutter" system by which the
* waste of sap is reduced to a minimum.
Excessive "turpentine farmers," especially
in Florida, have been adopting the cup
and gutter system in place of the other,
with the result that their annual prod-
uct has been considerably increased, even
where only the same number of trees
were tapped. Experiments on a very ex-
tensive scale have also been conducted
in Florida with the view of ascertaining
if the life of the turpentine forests could
be lengthened and the value of the trees
maintained by smaller incisions. No less
than 8.000 trees have been studied to
secure data of this sort. Incisions have
been made in these trees on different
sides of the trunk, also of varying
lengths. The tests which were begun
two years ago have already advanced far
enough to show that by making a com-
paratively small cut in the tree as much
sap can be secured as through a larger
incision, provided care is taken to make
the incision in the proper place. It is
believed that this method will teed to
considerably expand the industry in the
The many beneficial properties of the
sap of the yellow and other species of
pine have greatly extended its use in re-
cent years. At the present time about
15,000,000 gallons are utilized in var-
nishes and other compounds for covering
material. Only in recent years has it
been utilized extensively for soap, but
now a number of the principal varieties
of toilet soap are composed largely of
some form of turpentine, while it may
be called one of the necessary ingredients
of some of the most popular patent medi-
The advance in the price of pine lum-
ber caused by the great demand for this
material for building and other purposes,
has checked the turpentine industry to
a certain extent. Up to ten years ago
the comparatively low price obtained for
the lumber induced the turpentine faf-
mers to operate very extensively. Since
* the extraction of the sap from the tree
not only hinders its growth but injures
it in other ways, much of the turpentine
secured at present comes from the poorer
grades of pine such as the loblolly, and
care is taken to save the larger trees
of yellow pine from being tapped.
A new process for securing turpentine,
however, has recently been attempted in
Florida which may revolutionize the in-
dustry, since by it turpentine can be dis-
tilled direct from the waste products of
the ordinary pine saw mill. This is the
claim of the company manufacturing tihe
turpentine at present, and as it isproduc-
ing about 4,000 gallons per month with
the small plant it is operating apparently
the process is successful. In obtaining
the spirits by these methods it is only
necessary to take the waste material,
such as chips and splinters of the yellow
and loblolly pine, and run them through
a machine which will grind them into
snall particles. Then with the other
refuse from the saws the material is car-
ried by means of a conveyor to retorts
where steam is applied for an hour. In
this way the crude turpentine is obtained,
which is passed into a tank with con-
densed steam, causing tihe oil of turpentine
to rise to the top. This is taken to an-
other still from which it is passed through
a cooling worm which prevents it from
evaporating. After being purified in vats
it is ready for commercial purposes. It
will be noted that this process is very
similar to the ordinary distillation of the
spirits from the crude sap, while a gallon
of the commercial product can be secured
at a cost of 30 cents for manufacturing.
As the raw material costs practically
nothing, the expense is merely for the
process of manufacturing.
This may be of great moment to the
South as the discovery that cotton seed
makes a valuable oil as well as stock
feed and fertilizer. Before this discovery,
which is only of recent years, cotton seed
was thrown away as waste material, ex-
cept the small quantity needed for agri-
cultural purposes. Where sawdust and
other refuse is not used as fuel at the
modern pine lumber mill it is frequently
heaped into greatpiles or destroyed in a
waste burner. The company which has
been making turpentine from sawdust has
tested not only the ordinary pine dust
but ft lightwood as well as yellow pine
stumps. It has been found that a cord
of the ordinary dust yields from 5 to 10
gallons of the liquid, a cord of lightwood
from 16 to 20 gallons, while good pine
stumps yield from 20 to 30 gallons. It
is safe to say that hundreds of thousands
of acres in Georgia, Florida and South
Carolina pine forests contain many
stumps which could have been made prof-
itable, but have gone to waste through
decay. The process, however, could be
utilized where tracts of timber land have
recently been cut. It is not improbable
that plants for manufacturing the tur-
pentine can be operated in connection
with the sawmills in the yellow pine
lands, just as many cotton gins have
auxiliary mills for securing cottonseed oil
and converting the by-products into fer-
THE CAMPHOR TREE IN FLORIDA.
On a parity with tea raising In South
Carolina, which is now an acknowledged
success at the Pinehurst tea gardens, near
Summerville, in that State, may be placed
the production of camphor from the cam-
phor tree in Florida.
Both industries are alike of oriental
origin and indeed until recently neither
was spoken of as possible outside the Far
East. but the genius of American enter-
prise does not know any limits to its
Experiments, and with these experiments
are coming many practical matters of ser-
vice and profit to mankind that were for-
merly undreamed of among the possibili-
In this latter class may be placed the
production of camphor, which as a com-
mercial product no one appears ever to
have thought of for the South until quite
recently. It is true that the camphor tree
had been grown in Florida as a foliage
plant and something of a curiosity for
some years, but it was not until within
the past year that tests were made of its
During the past year a number of these
trees in different parts of Florida were
placed at the disposal of experts in the
Department of Agriculture at Washington,
and from these trees some thirty pounds
of camphor gum were produced. This was
refined and proved to be in every respect
a perfect substitute for the oriental arti-
cle. These experts declare that the cam-
phlor tree can be grown successfully in
many portions of Florida, even where the
cultivation of the orange tree has been
abandoned owing to its liability to frost,
and from which we may infer that the
camphor tree is not as tender, or so sus-
ceptible to being injured by frost as is
the orange tree, and if this be a fact
then there is a new industry open for
Florida of considerable value.
If sufficient camphor gum can be pro-
duced to even supply a portion of our do-

mestic markets it will be well worth in-
augurating, and we have no doubt but that
the experiments of the past year will
have such results. As yet no details are
available as to the cost of producing this
material, but as the main question is the
adaptability of soil and climate to the
growth of the camphor tree, the gather-
ing and refining of the gum should be a
simple matter and one with no very great
expense attending it.
