a general discussion.
Motion to Adopt.
One of the Georgia representatives
moved that the plan of Col. Toomer be
adopted, modify the suggestion that one-
half of the produdet be retired for four-
months by adding the words, "or until
such time as the prices are satisfactory."
A second came instantly from different
parts of the hall, and Col. Toomer then
called for a discussion of the question,
stating that he wished it thoroughly
threshed out and all of its phases looked
into before the association acted upon it.
Mr. P. IL Sutherland stated that he was
heartily in favor of the plan, but that,
before he could vote to support it, he
must consult with his factor, and see if
it all was agreeable to him. This, he said,
was necessary in order for him to know
that he could meet all his obligations as
they came due. The sentiment of the
olan he heartily favored, but, considering
a vote in favor of the plan a pledge to
retire one-half of his product, as provided
in the motion, he stated that he must de-
cline to vote until he had seen his factor.

part of United States officials io convict
Mr. O'Hara of peonage, the operators re-
ceived him with sustained applause and
cheers, showing plainly their sentiment on
the peonage prosecutions.
Mr. O'Hara pointed out that no money
was being made at the present prices, and
as showing that the prices were arbitrar-
ily fixed, recalled that the forest fires and
the short crop, coupled with no material
change in the labor conditions, should

CoL L. F. Rogers' Address.
Hon. R. F. Rogers, of Marion county,
was the next speaker, and his address was
one of the most timely of the entire ses-
He pointed out the necessity of arrang-
ing with the factors for the storing of
one-half of the product, if the plan was
adopted, and the getting from them of
negotiable receipts, or cash advances, with
which to meet obligations incident to ope-
rating expenses as they fell due.
Then came an illustration of the plan.
proposed, an illustration that was ex-
tremely timely, very forceful, and carried
conviction with it. He told of the fight
the cotton producers had made against a
combine that was fixing the price of cotton
as arbitrarily as the turpentine combine
was fixing that of naval stores. The cot-
ton farmers had united, had contributed
amounts varying from $5 to $1,000, accord-
ing to the means of each, for the build-
ing of warehouses and the storing of the
fleecy staple. Immediately the prices had
gone up, and today the farmers were vir-
tually controlling the prices.
Col. Rogers pointed out that the factors
and the operators must stand together,
that thee must be no wavering in the
ranks, and suggested that it might be
best, perhaps, to appoint a small commit-
tee to visit the factors and learn their
attitude on the question.
Tmera Tafh Plain.
Cl. W. M. Toomer then took the foor
again, and, talking straight from the
shoulder and in plainest of language, said
among other things:
"Do you realize that we know too little
about the selling end of this business!
Do you realize that we are leaving the
selling end wide open to those who eae
nothing for us, but only for their own
profits? I tel you there are some of us
here who are helping to cut our own
throats, by playing right into the hands
of the Shotter combine.
"Do you know how a market is made?
Let me tell you what little I know about
it. The combine comes, let us say, to the
Barnes-Jesup Company, the Naval Stores
Export Company or the West-Flynn-Har-
ris Company and offers to buy at 56 cents,
one cent less than the market price this
morning. The companies refuse to sell,
and then there is no market.

"And then what do they do? They get
some concern to make a sale at the price,
they wish. It is posted in Savannah, and
the market is made at that figure

that I am likely to have an argument

it again, and I stand by what I have
This stirred the enthusiasm as nothing
else of the morning, and CoL Toomer was
aphpladed to the echo.
"This warehouse receipt proposition has
never been rightly tried," continued the
speaker. "I venture to say that outside
of the banks in Jacksonville there are
mighty few Florida banks that have eves
had the receipts offered them, and prob-
ably none of the banks in the small,
towns and cities. Store your product, o0
one-half of it. Take the warehouse re-
ceipt therefore, and then offer it to any
bank on a 15 per cent margin, and I tell
you that bank will take it, realizing that
it is a gilt-edge security, that haa been
given them. Try it, 1 say, and, if you
wish to know more fully, there is one man
here this morning who is doing it. Fur-
thermore, Col. Rogers will bear me out
that this was the method used by the cot-
ton growers." To this assertion, Col. Rog-
ers called, "Rightl"
Mr. Barnes Speaks.
Mr. C. I. Barnes, of the Barnes-Jessup
Company, then took the foor, and stated
that conditions just at present were some-
what difficult to meet, but, in response to
a question from Col. Toomer, stated that
his frm would do all that it consistently
could to help out the operator.
"I think," added CoL Toomer, "that the
conditions are not so bad as some seem
to think them. Let us stand together,
and if your factor will not help you, get
one that will. There is no sense in this
playing forever into the hands of the Shot-
ter combine. My friend, Mr. Bares, I
know to be one of the most liberal men
in Florida, and I think, when the time

One of the speakers jumped to his feet
and called attention to the fact that at
the beginning of the season, the amount
to be produced sad which could be offered
on the market was uncertain, that a man
was taking a chance. "What is in a ware-
house is in a warehouse," he shouted. "Get
it there sad you know what you have on
hand. There is no chance on that."
Cheers, laughter and applause greeted
this plain statement, and then, from all
parts of the house, came cries for the
CoL Toomer put it, asking all who fav-
ored it to signify so by rising, and the
assembly, so far as the operators were con-
cerned rose as one man. Those opposing
were then asked to vote, and there was
not one vote recorded against it, and the
first step in the fight for the independence
of the producer, for the emancipation
of the operator from the manipulating of
the market by the combine had been
A recess was then order until 3:30
o'clock, when the second suggestion of Col.
Toomer's, the formation of a $1,5,000
export company by April 1, 1908, and the
appointment of a committee to draft plans
and perfect organization was to be taken
The Afternoon Sesion.
Following logically upon the all-impor-
tant action of the morning session, and
taking the next step in the campaign for
the emancipation of the turpentine market
from the arbitrary manipulations of the
combine, at the afternoon session the Tur-
pentine Operators' Association unanimous-
ly voted to organize an export and ware-
housing company, capitalized at at least
A committee of fifteen naval stores men
of recognized standing throughout the tur-
pentine belt, was appointed to draw plans,
move among the operators and learn just
what support could be secured, and take
all necessary steps looking to the actual
incorporation of the company and putting
it on its feet, ready for business by April
This action was taken only after a
thorough discussion of the project, after
careful deliberation, and when the senti-
ment of the operators gathered at the
board of trade auditorium, and represent-
ing three States, seemed entirely in accord
with the plan.
This special committee will meet at the
call of Mr. R. S. Hall, named by Presi-
dent W. M. Toomer, as chairman.
Beginning the Work.
The second session of the assembly was
called to order by President Toomer
promptly at 3:30 o'clock, and, without
delay of any kind, the presiding officer
briefly stated the objects, saying in part:
"This session this afternoon is for the
purpose of taking the first steps toward
organizing an export or warehousing com-
pany, the beginning of a movement that
should be most far-reaching, most momen-
tous, in its results.
"There Is no question but that there is
going to be a big amount of turpentine
retired from the market, following upon
the action taken this morning. That must
be held, to be sold when the price is right.
Similar action may have to be taken
again, again and it is all foolishness to
think that we have to sell our product
during the few short hot months of the
"This is, I verily believe, the only way
in which we shall secure permanent re-
lief from the conditions which we are now
facing and fighting. The action taken this
morning of retiring one half of the output
until the prices are right, is only to af-
ford, at best, a temporary relief. It is
only a makeshift.
"A company with the facilities for stor-
ing great quantities of spirits turpentine,
an export company with a minimum "capi
tal, at the very least, of $1,500,000, is the
only permanent solution of this plablim.
We must act, and act now.

is something that cannot be done in a

day, in a week, in a month. It takes
time, it takes careful work, and it needs
good business brains at its head. My plan
and I make this only as a suggestion,
would be to appoint a committee of fif-
teen to draw plans, to ascertain what the
operators will do for this cause, to find
out just what we have upon which to
work, and then to take the necessary steps
for organization, and for the launching
of the company by April 1, 1908, at the
latest and earlier if practicable."
CoL Toomer then asked for suggestions
from other operators present at the meet-
Motion Is Before House.
CoL R. F. Rogers, first stipulating that
he was not to be appointed on the com-
mittee according to the ancient and hon-
orable rule governing the appointment of
makers of motions, moved that the sug-
gestion be adopted, and a committee of
fifteen be appointed by the chair.
Several seconds came promptly, from
different parts of the hall, and, the mo-
tion being then before the house, the dis-
As was the case in the morning, Georgia
representatives strongly urged the adop-
tion of the motion and the cry that called
to battle was sounded when one operator,
after declaring himself one of the youngest
in the industry, exclaimed, "Let's fight:
I never did believe in sitting still and let-
ting the other man whip you. Let's fight
Let's not sit here and be eaten upl"
CoL Rogers Speaks.
Col. R. R. Rogers then took the floor,
saying, among other things:
"I have studied this matter closely, and
I am convinced that if only the market
was let alone, if this constant tampering
with it could be stopped, that the law
of supply and demand would accurately
regulate the prices. Supply and demand
would fix the right price for spirits tur-
pentine just as it has for rosin.
"The rosin market has been untampered
with and the price paid for rosin today is
wholly satisfactory. I am confident that.
if the same law was allowed, unhindered,
to operate with the spirits turpentine mar-
ket, that it would fix the prices there. But
the turpentine market is tampered with,
and it is this tampering that we have to
Form No Trst.
"I believe the plan that has just been
suggested a good one, and I believe it is
"I would be opposed to the forming of
any company for purely speculative pur-
poses, for the purpose of holding the tur-
pentine until prices were forced higher
and higher and higher. That would be
forming a monopoly, a trust, and to this
I am unalterably opposed.
"But I am in full accord with the move-
ment to form a company for warehousing
our spirits until the tampering with the
market can be stopped, and until we can
force the prices up to what is right. This
morning turpentine was quoted at 57 cents,
and I believe and I think every operator
here believes, that it ought to be at least
67 cents. Let us form a company that
will have the facilities for storing our
products until the price is right and, when
it is right then sell them.
"This is self-protection, and not secu-
lation, and this movement I can heartily
The 01 Company.
One speaker pointed out that the old
export company, while in active business,
had immeasurably benefited the operators
and this was, in itself, a strong argument
toward the formation of another one.
"Let us unite," he said, "and it is easy.
One million and a half dollars is a large
sum, but, if we stand together we can
easily raise it, and with the facilities
which we now have our capital would be
equal to thousands of dollars more than
the minimum agreed upon. Let us get
into this fight and fight it out, and let us
do it through the uniting to organize an
Several others made addresses, all ring-
ing with enthusiasm, and not one speak-
ing against the movement, in any way.
Then, from all parts of the hall, came the
calls for the question. Ol. Toomer put
it to a vote and it was unanimously car-

MEETING OF GEORGIA-FLORIDA SAW-
Fernandina, June 18.-The dawning of
the day which witnessed the auspicious
meeting here of the Georgia-Florida Saw-
mill Association marked a signal event in
the history o this place as connected with
its extensive lumber and shipping inter-
ests. At an early hour the city and water
front took on a holiday asepet. From all
* vessels in the harbor flags of varying na-
tionalities were floating and the rigging
was distinguished by all the bright huei
signal codes. From the United States ship
Wasp, now lying in the harbor, were dis-
played the colors of all nationalities com-
minglin gin one beautiful rainbow effect
from rigging and masts. As the hour drew
near for the special train which was to
convey the guests of the city to their ap
pointed meeting place, much interest was
manifested. The crowd grew thick about
the depot and docks, nearby which lay the
steamer Hildegarde. which was to convey
the party on an excursion up the water
front with the object of showing to them
the magnificent harbor and its complete
facilities for handling all their output of
Promptly on time the engine puffed in.
local bands struck up patriotic airs, anti
amid much cheer of greeting the goodly
number of visitors alighted from the train
and were heartily welcomed by the recep-
tion committee and by them escorted to
the Hildegarde. After an hour's cruise
the party boarded the electric trolley cars
-and were conveyed to the beach, at which
place a magnificent shore dinner was
served the seventy-five or eighty-odd
guests who assembled around the banquet.
The long table was beantifull set, fronting
the sea, and the viands served, mingling
with the salt sea breezes blowing directly
over and through the al fresco dining hall
made an ideal feasting place amn one which
no doubt, will be long borne in memory.
-Just prior to the dinner hour. a prelimi!
nary meeting was held, during which the
policy of lumber producers was discussed.
After the banquet, another meeting of
the association was held and further busi-
ness transacted. The opening address of
welcome was made by Mayor John G. Mc-
Giffen in behalf of the interests of the
city, the lumber shippers and the board
of trade, and responded ti by Mr. Still-
well of Savannah in behalf of the sawmill
association. Further remarks were also
made by Mr. O'Hara and Mr. Conrad. both
of Florda. Capt. H. H. Tift, president of
the association, called the meeting. intro-
ducing Mr. Stillwell and others of the as-
sociation. The guests were more than
leased and delighted by the extensive and
elegant preparations which had been so
lavishly made by the people of the city
for their entertainment. and comments oni
all sides were expressed regarding the
ideal location of our town and harbor, and
their pleasant surprise at the thorougii
and complete manner of their entire en-
tertainment. It was remarked more than
once among them that during the progress
of their business meetings. Fernandina was
the only place in which they had been en-
tertained entirely without expense on their
own part and wholly as guests of the
boardd of trade. The special object of this
present meeting was to be a discussion re-
2arding either the closing down of tlhe
mills for a given pIeril or else material"
reducing the output of lumber and in-
creasing production in proportion to in-
creased cost of round timber and labor-
not. indeed, being sure that the market
warranted continuation of their present
President S. A. Swann. of the board of
trade, expressed himself as entirely of the
opinion that the lumber enterprise is the
most important in the south, Georgia and
Florida especially owing their present
progress to the captains of this industry.
In our harbor of Fernandina there can be
no congestion of cars or lumber, owing to
the fact that the railway company has
extensive trackage facilities and is able
to handle double the quantity of lumber
and naval stores now brought into the
city for foreign and coastwise shipment.
Our lumber wharves cover a distance of
5,000 feet with storage sufficient to store
and handle 50,000,000 feet of lumber. The
boar dof trade feels that it is a great
pleasure to have the lumber association
meet at this place an dare thankful that
they responded so cordially to the invita-
tion extended. The party left amid hearty
adieus on the 6.10 train.

IuRPEallA MEN, RALLY!
President Toomer's call for a special
meeting of the Turpentine Operators' As-
sociation met with a hearty and an en-
thusiastic response. At the meeting of
producers in Jacksonville this week there
were in attendance fully three hundred,
among them many of the leading operators
of Georgia and Florida, and the convention
was one of results. The call was a quick
one. It only went forth a few days in
advance of the meeting. But operators
knew what it meant. As individuals they
have noticed for the past few weeks the
manipulations of the market by the buy-
ers' combine; and this is not the first year
they have noticed it. The buyers' com-
bine can raise or lower the market at
will. It is absolutely in control of the
selling end of the business. The law of
supply and demand is not allowed to work
out its logical results. The combine of
buyers-familiarly known to the operators
as the Shotter interests-so manipulates
the market that prices reach a fictitious
point when there is nothing to ship from
the woods, and when it-the combine-is
making contracts in Europe for future de-
livery. When there is something to ship,
from May 1st to October 1st, when the
bulk of the spirits is going into the mar-
kets then this same combine so manipu-
lates the market that prices are precipi-
stated, generally from ten to twenty cents
a gallon less than the logical value of tIhe
product as regulated lby supply and de-
mandi It is a dangerous condition for the
operators anid when President Toomer
sounded the note of warning no wonder
is it that the response was quick and gen-
A full report of the proceedings of that
meeting appears elsewhere in this issue of
the Record. Read it. read the president's
address, study the action taken, and fall
in line to fight the enemy.
The convention decided that operators
should, so far as in their power, ware-
house at least one-half of their spirits of
turpentine for the next four months, thus
retiring fully forty thousand barrels-that
this turpentine should remain in the tanks
to be sold by the factor whenever the
prices reached a satisfactory point. The
warehouse facilities are ample. The ware-
house company will issue negotiable re-
ceipts. On a fifteen or twenty per cent
margin the banks could ask for no more
satisfactory collateral security. The ques-
tion of financing on the part of the indi-
vidual operator is, therefore, not a serious
one. The factors can and will help the
dependent operator. This relief will only
be a temporary one, it is true, but it will
unquestionably be a relief for the present.
The logical price of spirits of turpentine
today is 67 cents. Retiring thirty or forty
thousand barrels from the market for the
next four months is the only way to com-
hat the manipulators for the time being.
Now as to the future: President Toom-
er suggested, and the preliminary steps
have already been taken, the organization
of an export company to be owned by
operators, with a capital stock of one and
a half million dollars, equal to that of the
buyers' combine, the American Naval
Stores Company, such an operators' sell-
ing company to be ready for business by
April 1st of next year. This is the wisest
It is now up to the operators to rally as
one influence. First, effect the temporary
relief by warehousing a portion of your
spirits. Then make the relief permanent
by the organization of a company to con-
trol the selling end sufficiently strong to
combat the enemy.
If every opertaor will do his duty, both
of these ends can and will be accomplished.

Addresses were made by C. A. Carson,
on a Banker's Responsibilities and His Re-

able address and received the closest at-
Mr. W. M. Corry, of Quincy, on The
Tobacco Industry of Florida. The speak-
er marshalled together the data regard-
ing this industry in such a way as to
bring it out in its strongest light, and the
figures, representing most accurately the
business done, proved a big surprise to
Another able address was that on The
Sponge Industry of Florida, by Mr. F. A.
Wood., of St. Petersburg. The data re-
garding the sponging vessels required, the
vast army of Greek divers employed, and
the profits accruing from this work. gave
a new insight into the value to Florida
of an industry the extent of which is
scarcely realized save by the very few who
are close to it.

In the evening at 8:30 o'clock the an-

spacious dining rooms of Hotel Continen-

the direction of Manager I. E. Bemis, and

Mr. D. U. Fletcher, president of the Cit-

toastmaster, and responses were made to
toasts as follows:
Senator H. H. Bnckman, in his usual
eloquent way. responded to the toast. How

considerable humor into his talk.
The Ideal Relationship That Should Ex-
ist Between Banker and Borrower, was
responded to by Mr. P. L. Sutherland, of
Quincy, and this response was one of tlhe
best of the entire evening. Humor was
mingled with facts of wide importance,
