South's Financial and Industrial Independence Noted in Effect of New
SYork Bank Failures on Trade Here,
Had the money panic which struck New
York the early part of this week come
two years ago there would have been in-
calculable injury to the South as one of
the direct results. As it is, while the
South may feel it to some extent and
there may be a few failures, we have
learned down this way to be just a little
more independent than we were formerly,
with the happy consequence that we are
not depending today to any great extent
upon Wall Street.
Today the South has the key to the
situation, so. far as itself is concern.
While we have not yet reached the stage
where we can exercise a positive degree
of independnee, we are, nevertheless, bring-
ing in more money than we are sending
out and our bankers have learned to be
more careful in their operations.
This great loss to the business and finan-
cial interests of the country, this loss and
faaneial rui of scores of individuals
and business firms in all parts of the
United States is one of the active and
expected results of a system of banking
in this country which ought to be im-
While the Industrial Record deprecates
the attacks made upon the corporations of
the country just because they are power-
ful within their own organizations, we
believe that the government has not gone
far enough in its general supervision of
bunking houses. Whenever a national bank
fails it is due more to the criminal manip-
ulation of its business by some of its offi-
cials than to any natural causes, or causes
which affect the public in general.
Take the banks which have failed in
New York, for instance. They were in
active control of a lot of "gentlemen"
boodlers-men who used their faculties
and knowledge in order to get use of the
people's money and speculate in "ficti-
tious" stocks. The wrecking of the seve-
ral banks in New York followed a wild-
cat speculation campaign. It was not due
to the failure of crops, the failure of
mines or of other common industries to
yield, but due entirely to the efforts of
one or two to make a few millions by
robbing others in a gentlemanly way to
just the extent that they were to make.
Their scheme fell flat, but with th-ir
fall came tumbling some of the greatest
financial institutions in the country which
had risked too heavily and advanced on
the securities which were being hocked on
a gambling market.
Take the case of Morse, the great steam-
ship magnate. He pears to have been
one of the most energetic plungers in
New York. He secured money on fiei-
tious stocks, bought steamship companies
as a farmer buys mules and would ha'-e
gone on with his wild manipulations had
he not been so unfortunate as to fall
down with some of those with whom he
had become too deeply associated.
The system of organizing one bank, us-
ing the stock of that institution to or-
ganize a second and then a third, until
a chain of banks are formed to squeeze
the money of depositors and place it in
syndicate concerns, ought to be stopped.
It ought to be the policy of the National
Government to place the strong arm
The Standard Oil Company, in Direct Com-
muinication to the Record, Denies it is
in Collusion With the American
Naval Stores Company.
Editor Industrial Record:
Having read with great interest and care
the article headed "Standard Oil Co. in
Collusion with Manipulators of Naval
Stores Market," and having also notel
your editorial comments on same, I feel
that your high sense of fairness and jus-
tice will give equal publicity to the other
side of this question. Believing that ) on
S will do so, I ask that you publish in your
paper the following:
W. M. BENT.
Editor Industrial Record:
In the article published in your issue of
October 19th, your e .ap.a&dnt or infor-
mant attempts to show by figures and de-
duetions therefrom, that the standard Oil
Co. has not purchased as much turpentine
during the year 19 as it purchased for
the orresponding period of 190 and con-
asqui tly t is in eolusmio with the Amer-
ican Naval Stores Company to bear the
In reply to this permit me to say that
the Standard Oil Co. is not a user of tur-
pentine. It is strictly a marketer. It
buys to sell and always sells what it buys
if it is possible to do so.
It is an admitted fact that in handling
spirits the main object -of the Standard
Oil Co. is to make a legitimate profit on
same. The more it can sell, the more
money it makes, and the incentive, there-
fore, to market just as many barrels of
turpentine as is possible is a very plain
one-one that every naval stores pro-
ducer and every factor in the country e~n
No sane man will think for a moment
that the Standard Oil Co. is marketing this
year on a basis of prevailing prices, tur-
pentine which it purchased last year at
prices ranging practically 10e. per gallon
higher. If, therefore, the Standard Oil Co.

of the people's money and disturbers of
public confidence. Surely there ought to
be some redress for those who have been
heavy losers because of the genuine a l
extensive rascality of those few who are
responsible for the conditions in New York
But there are lessons to be learned from
this state of affairs. These flurries teach
the people of the United States, and es-
pecially the business interests, the necs-
sity of being more careful with their
money. There are thousands of avenues
for investment in all parts of the Unitet-
States and not the slightest necessity for
gambling in copper and other fictitious
stocks. The fact is the people are fast
learning the lesson of investing in real
estate. And after all that is the best in-
vestment that can be made. Thousands
are growing rich by such investments to
twenties, who are making even a fair
profit on the other character of invest-
ments. The people are learning, too, that
it does not pay to keep all their money
tied up in banks. The story of the New
York failure, where just a party of men
have wrecked several large banks and
scores of business institutions, ought to be
a pretty strong sermon against trusting
some banks with savings. Of course this
does not apply to the banks in this part
of the country, which are founded on sub-
stantial lines and have men who appre-
ciate their responsibility to the public be-
hind them, but it tells what money is
being lost by those in other parts of
the country and ought to impress the
has not bought as much turpentine this
year as it bought last year, it is simply
because their demands have not been as
great this year as they were last year,
and not because of any collusion with the
American Naval Stores Company.
The figures given by your correspond-
ent show beyond dispute that there has
not been as much turpentine shipped to
the interior from Savannah this year as
was shipped last year. Is this because
there was not so much purchased or is
there any other reason? There is cer-
tainly another reason. Investigation will
show that there was more shipped from
Jacksonville and by independent produnere
direct from the stills to the West this
year than ever before in the history of
the business, and the probability is that
the excess of shipments from these points
this year will account largely for the fali-
ing off in the shipments from Savannah
for the same period.
It has always been the policy of the
Standard Oil Co., to deal whenever pos-
sible with the independent producer, and
following this principle it has purchased
more from them this year than it has ever
purchased in any one preceding year,
which is a better demonstration than any
lesson to some extent even this far south.
Take the investments which have bee
made in Jacksonville real estate. Few
have lost and thousands have gained to a
But, whatever the situation may be
in New York, the South has cause to con-
gratulate herself upon the fact that she is
becoming more and more indepemdeat.

rassment may temporarily injure businem

care and of inducing the government to

THIS IS GOOD ADVICE, IF IT DOES
COME AT A LATE HOUR.
The Naval Stores Review, the organ of
Shotter, came out with interviews last
week with some of the prominent factors
of Savannah, in which they insist that
the box cut another year must be held
Of course Shotter is doing this to im-
press the producer with the argument that
the box cut of this year and alleged in-
creased production of spirits is one of the
causes for the decline in prices. As a
matter of course the production this year
will be considerably less than that of
last. But the factors interviewed by the
Naval Stores Review give out some sound
argument. The interviews follow:
John R. Young Company.
"Our customers among the producers
have not yet begun to discuss the question
of cut of new boxes, although the time is
wing near for preparations along that
havy be satisfied with the cutting of
comparatively few boxes this winter. It
is a matter of self preservation. The fac-
tors will certainly not want to put out
money for any expansion of the business
under the existing conditions. It is de-
eidedly for the best interests of the pro-
ducers to hold in their operations and en-
deavor to limit the next crop, and avoid a
return to lower values. There will be
more money made by saving the virgin
timber and working the old boxes. If we
can reduce the supplies of spirits, we will
save that article from going lower, and
the demand for common rosins seems to
guarantee a price that will make the work-
ing of the old trees profitable. The re-
turns for this season up to this time have
bee disappointing. Accounts have not
been reduced as they should have been.
Many of the producers have made nothing
beyond a living. Some are not as well
of as a year ago. The next five months
will help them out, with the present prices
continuing for common rosins. The scrape
crop, we learn, promises to be good, and
this will assist in bettering the producers'

held down to as great an extent as pos-
aibe. The business simply cannot survive

a return to forty cent turpentine. Mort-
gage accounts do not show the reductions
they should and this year promises to be
an unsatisfactory one in net results. The
better prices for rosins have not offset the
lessened returns from turps and the in-
creased expenses of operating. The pro-
ducers who want to be wild with the cut
this winter will be enemies to the pros-
perity of the producers as a whole."
J. P. Wiliams Company.
"Our views are well known on the sub-
ject of box cutting. It is a fact that the
conditions that confront us demand beyond
question the most determined efforts to
hold down the next crop to such a point
that further declines in the price of tur-
pentine will be made impossible by the
supply being under, rather than above, the
demand. We believe that the factors will
do all in their power in that direction,
and the men of influence among the pro-
ducers should bend every energy to the
same end. We are convinced that the sal-
vation of many producers depends on pro-
ducers as a class taking a determined
stand for a lessened production and adher-
ing to it individually. No producer will
believe that he can make money with
prices 51wer than they are now, and yet
we must face the situation that confronts
us and realize that next year promises to
be a year of business uncertainties and
possible depression in trade, and that a
heavy production of naval stores would
inevitably send values down lower and
lower. The factor who tells the produ-
cers the truth as to the situation is the
real friend of the producers."
Southern States Naval Stores Co.
"As a rule we find the producers disin-
clined to extend their operations. Prices
this year have not been profitable, despite
the better values for rosins. Many pro-
dueers have just about lived and broke
even up to this time. They find that they
cannot do much more than make a living
at the prices now prevailing. We think
the coming winter they will no more work
than is necessary to hold their hands to-
gether. With the high prices of timber
and of supplies the producer who restricts
his cut of virgin trees and works the old
boxes will not only save the trees, but
will come out ahead in the end. By les-
sening production the producers will lessen
their working expenses and advance prices
for what they do make, and have a better
bank balance to their credit than at the
end of this year as things now look."
Chesatt & O'Neill
"So far we have had no expression ol
any desire on the part of our customers te
cut boxes at all. They have simply shown
no interest in the question at all up to
this time. We advocate that they go very
slowly in box cutting. We propose to laI
stress on this throughout the winter. We
would rather buy cheap turpentine than
to make it and sell it at the present o0
lower prices. Our customers are coming
out fairly well this season, generally
speaking, due to the prices received foi
resins so far. The main portion of ou
business is in Georgia, where the condi.
tions have been better than in some other
sections. But the net returns will not in
as good as was anticipated. Lower price
for turpentine next year would be ruin-
ous. Producers should keep that fact in
mind and forestall such a possibility by
limiting production. Self-interest must
prompt them to be very conservative in
planning the next crop."
Another Factor's Views.
Another large factorage house doing a
heavy business in Georgia, Florida al'
Alabama, said: "The selfishness of human
nature is the element in the situation that
is most difficult to eradicate. To tell the
straight truth, the factors have never
stuck together in holding down produc-
tion, and the producers have not been as
one man either. Self-preservation this
year may force them to more compete
understanding and a more united action.
Results this season have been fairly givti
where normal conditions surrounded pro-
duction, but the season will not yield the
producers anything like the p.eots that
were anticipated. It must not he lost
sight of that it takes, regardless of the
higher price of timber, from 20 to 25 per
cent more to make naval stores than it
did three or four years ago, and timber is
almost out of reach in price. I don't
hesitate to say that. considering the much
greater amount of money invested in a
turpentine farm today than five years ago,
the percentage of profits is no greater than
then. The lower prices for lumber have
led to many saw mills closing down which
may redound to the benefit of the naval
stores producers, enabling some of them
to extend their box cutting leases, and
perhaps enabling others to get box cutting
privileges at a lower rate. Unfortunately
the naval stores business is one that can-
not be shut down .when prices go off, like
the sawmill business, and supplies cannot
be regulated after the season's prelimi-
nary work has been done. Producers
know that at the present cost of manu-
factoring naval stores they are making
nothing much in profits, and that forty
cent turpentine means a wiping out of
all profits and direct financial loss to
them. We are hopeful that this will be
so keenly felt that the box cut will be
held down and all plans for next season be
on a conservative enough basis to insure a
decided reduction in production. If not,
then I dislike to think of the conse-
Inquiries among the factors as to the
number of producers who were in financial
position to go ahead with their box cut
regardless of the wishes of the factors
brought the statement that there were
probably not over ten to fifteen per cent
whose finances were in such a condition
that they would not have to apply to fac-
tors for money, and that another ten to
fifteen per cent were in such shape that
they might get assistance from local
banks. Not over 25 to 30 per cent of the
producers, it would seem, can get along
without the active co-operation and as-
sistance of the factors. This being the
case it would seem if the factors would
adhere to an agreement as to the curtail-
ment of advances and the reduction or the
next crop that definite results would be
achieved. But as one factor said: "There
has been much talk in the past without re-

H *ImNOCENT" STANDARD OIL CO.
The outrageous condition of the turpen-
time market in 1907 could not have been
posibe without the collusion of the
m andrd.l Oil company with the American
Naval Stores Company. No person knows
this better than Mr. W. M. Bent, who is
at the head of that department. We ear-
amitly recommend that at the approach-
ing coaretion of the operators, resolu-
tion be adopted calling upon the Gov-
ernmeat to investigate the turpentine
marketing situation and the connection, if
.ay, of the Standard Oil Co. with the
I hott trust.
THE APPROACHING CONVENTION.
Only a few days intervene between now
and the opening of the Turpentine Opera-
tors' Convention. And this is to be the
most important convention in the history
of the Association from a standpoint of
the importance of questions involved.
There ought tobe some careful and dili-
gent studying of conditions from now un-
til the gavel of the president raps for
Really, there is a great deal to do. There
are a great many serious problems con-
fronting the producer of naval stores of
today. All of them ought to have the
most earnest and the most comprehensive
consideration from now until the conven-
tion meets by the individual members, and
when once the convention has been called
there ought to le POSITIVE ACTION on
all of them.
The Industrial Record has been making
its vigorous fight for the operators during
the past two months only after the most
careful study and consideration of all the
questions involved. We believe that we
have made the case against the manipula-
tors of the turpentine market plain as it
could be made. The operators have been
reading the Record and they ought to
know something of the true situation of
affairs. If they will study the columns of
the Record, look into all features and
phases of the case, there is not the slight-
.est doubt that they will come to Jackson-
ville prepared to take some definite and
decisive action in the premises.
The honest factors are practically in the
same boat as the operators. They are
fighting the same fight, though there are
so-called factorage houses which have been
selling out the operator in the interest of
Shotter for the past several years and
who are in this campaign endeavoring to
All this will come up for the attention
of the operator and the factor at the com-
ing meeting and there are reasons for be-
lieving that the patience of the operator
has been exhausted.
There are indications that this meeting
is to be of much benefit to the Associa-
tion. It will redound to the benefit of the
operator if the operator will only come to
the meeting prepared to offer some sug-
gestion and to be governed by whatever
action this convention takes.
As the Record has argued all along, the
operator has the key to the situation.
Will he use it?

The action of the factorage houses in
generally agreeing not to advance to
those who paid more than one and one-

met with the approval of the operators
who have had an opportunity to express
Operators are convinced that this is the
most sensible action that the factors could
take and it has had a great deal to do with
inspiring confidence for the next producing
The factors have held another conference
and have determined not to deviate in the
slightest from this maximum scale for
box-cutting. In the meantime information
is being received to the effect that there
are some operators who are determined to
box if it costs three cents. In fact some
of the operators have come out openly and
stated that the price they will pay will
depend upod their own judgment and not
on the judgment of the factor.
In the meantime the majority of the
operators are anxious to give all the en.
couragement in their power to the factor,
who are endeavoring to enforce this price

tion shown by the figures of the last sev
enty-five years continues to prevail, am
there is every reason to believe that i
will grow rather than lessen, our supplies
of anthracite coal will last about fift,
years, and of bituminous coal but a litti
over a hundred years. From the point o
view of national life, this means the ex
haustion of one of the most important fac
tors in our present civilization within th
The waste in use is not less appalling
But five per cent of the-potential power
residing in the coal actually mined is save
and used. For example, only about fiv
per cent of the power of the 150,000,00
tons annually burned on the railroads c
the United States is actually used in tra
tiso; ninety-Ave per cent is lest. In th
best incandescent electric lighting plant
but one-fifth of one per cent of the potei
tial value of the eeal is converted int
Many oil and gas elds, as in Pennsy
vans, West Virginia and the Mississip
vaBey, hae already failed, yet vas
amounts of gas continue to pour into the
air and great quantities of oil into the
streams. Cases are known in which vast
amounts of oil are systematically burned
in order to be rid of it. The prodigal
squandering of our mineral fuels proceeds
unchecked in the face of the fact that such
resources as these, once used or wasted,
can never be replaced. The waste of oil
is among the most dangerous of all wastes
now in progress in the United States. In
1896 Professor Shaler, than whom no one
has spoken with greater authority on this
subject, estimated that in the upland re-
gions of the States south of Pennsylvania
3.000 square miles of soil had been de-
stroyed as the result of forest denudation,
and that the destruction was then proceed-
ing at the rate of 100 square miles of fer-
tile soil per year. No seeing man can
travel through the United States without
being struck by the enormous loss of fer-
tility by easily preventable soil wash. The
soil so lost, as in the case of many other
wastes, becomes itself a source of damage
and expense, and must be moved from the
channels of our navigable streams at an
enormous annual cost.
The destruction of forest plants by over-
grading has resulted, in the opinion of men
most capable of judging, in reducing the
grazing of the public lands by one-half.
The destruction of forest plants is accom-
panied by a loss of surface soil through
erosion, by forest destruction, by corres-
ponding deterioration in the water supply,
and by a serious decrease in the quantity
of the waste of animals grown on over-
The lowest estimate reached by the for-
est service of the timber now standing in
the United States is 1,400,000,000,000 feet,
board measure, the highest is 2,000,000,-
000,00. The present annual consumption
is approximately 100,000,000,000 feet, while
the annual growth is but a third of the
consumption, or from thirty to forty bil-
lion feet. If we accept the larger estimate
of the standing timber, 2,000,000,000,000
feet, and the larger estimate of the annual
growth, forty billion feet, and apply the
present rate of consumption, the result
I shows a probable duration of our supplies
of timber of not more than thirty-three
f years. It is evident that all the waste
- must. if possible, be prevented.
e The conservation of the inland water
Sways of the United States constitutes
1 perhaps, the greatest single task whiel
- now confronts the nation. The mainte
- nance and increase of agriculture, the sup
- ply of clear water for domestic and man
i ufacturing use. the development of elee
t trial power, transportation and lighting
s and the creation of a system of inlam
y transportation by water, whereby to regu
e late freight rates by rail and to move the
f bulkier commodities cheaply from place t4
- place, is a task upon whose successful ac
- complishment the future of the nation de
e pends in a peculiar degree.
We are accustomed, and rightly accus
r. tomed. to take pride in the vigorous an
r healthful growth of the United States an
d its vast commerce for the future. Yet w
e are making no preparation to realize wha
0 we so easily and glibly foresee and predict
of The vast possibilities of our great future
-- will become realities only if we make out
e selves, in a sense, responsible for that ft
I, ture. The planned and orderly develop
i- meant and conservation of our national re
o sources is the first duty of the Unite
States. It is the only form of insurance
I- that will certainly protect us against die
