The Future of the Tight Cooperage Industry.
The tight cooperage industry is now go-
ing through an interesting struggle for ex-
istence. It is having more and more diffi-
culty in meeting the demands of trade
and the supply of timber necessary for
its permanence is not only being rapidly
Sdepleted, but is eagerly sought after by
Industries and trades, like species of
plants and animals, thrive when condi-
tions are favorable, struggle for existence
when conditions are adverse, and finally
die or survive according to their ability
to adapt themselves to new conditions.
The enormous resources of the United
States have offered almost unsurpassed
opportunities for industries to thrive, but
during the last fifty years important
economic changes have gone on, and now
some of the industries whiel have pros-
pered in the past have reached or are
rapidly approaching a point where they
must struggle for very life. This is espec-
ially true of certain industries which de-
pend upon the hardwood supply of the
The term "tight cooperage" is applied
very generally to all wooden, hoop-bound
packages made to contain liquids as con-
trasted with "slack cooperage," which is
intended for solids. The term is descrip-
tive of the character of the package, which
must be constructed with elose-fitting,
tight joints to prevent the escape of liq-
uid contents. To secure such results the
selection of high-grade material and exact-
ness in the manufacture of the component
parts of the package are necessary.
The use of tight cooperage dates back
to the earliest records, apparently having
been always an indispensable accessory
to commerce and transportation. In the
United States one of the earliest uses
of the forest resources was the employ-
ment of white oak for staves. Even at
that period there was a dearth of cooper-
age oak in Europe and the discovery of a
new source of supply was welcomed.
Tight packages are employed chiefly as
containers of alcoholic spirits and liquors;
cottonseed, petroleum, and other oils; tur-
peatine; pork, lard, and other packing-
house products; cider and vinegar; syrups
and molasses; paints and lead, and fish.
Of these the oil trade consumes by far the
p largest number, in spite of the fact that
a enormous quantity of oil is stored and
transported in tanks. The number of new
barrels required annually for oil is about
7 million. Alcoholic liquids rank next,
with approximately 5 million. Of the re-
mainder, the pork package is the most
Tight packages have two distinct uses:
Transportation and storage. The former
is the most important from the stand-
point of widest utility, while the latter is
indispensable for some commodities. For
the transportation of liquids and delivery
in the original package, in but few eases
does any form of container excel a barrel
Or keg of wood. The exception is when
undue loss occurs, as with gasoline and
allied products, from evaporation and ab-
The barrel has special advantages over
the other forms of container for trans-
portation in that it is light, yet strong;
is easily and quickly handled, and, un-
like metal, it does not offer a surface that
will be attacked by acids shipped in it.
The low cost of the package allows it to
be discarded at its destination, thereby
saving return transportation on the empty
package. Packages used for storage
must also be immune to the attack of
acids and be free from odors and other
properties that may affect the substance
contained. Briefly speaking, the physical
properties necessary for tight cooperage
are as follows:
Strength, toughness, flexibility, small
absorptive power, closeness of grain, non-
warping and nonchecking tendencies; ab-
solute freedom from such defects as will
cause leakage; reasonable resistance to
decay; absence of active agents which
may impart undesirable color, taste, or
odor to the contents. The last require-
ment, of course, applies chiefly to pack-
ages for use as a container of provisions,
such as syrups, lard, pork, etc.
White oak combines all of these prop-
erties in an admirable way and furnishes
nearly 90 per cent of all tight cooperage
stock; the remainder is made up of red
oak, chestnut oak, red gum, cypress,
spruce, white ash, elm, basswood, birch
and Douglas fir. No material except white
oak has proved satisfactory for the aging
of alcoholic beverages dependent upon the
action of the wood to improve their qual-
ity, but for all other cooperage, including
beer and ale, substitution of other woods
or materials is possible, though not nec-
essarily economical at present.
Those who have investigated the rea-
son why white oak containers assist the
aging of alcoholic beverages say that the
tannic acid in the oak is absorbed by the
liquor and enters into its composition.
The effect of this and possibly other acids,
of which little is known, is to impart to
the liquor a mild, delicate flavor in place
of the rank, unpleasant one characteristic
of unaged liquors, and, in addition, to
transform the color from a water white
to a deep brown amber. Attempts to age
liquors in packages of other woods have
been made and always with one result,
total failure. Packages for this purpose
require the highest grade of tight coop-
erage and have no lining or coating, but
the inner surface is charged, which it is
claimed, draws the tannic acid to the in-
ner surface of the package where it comes
in immediate contact with the contents.
Such commodities as oils. packing-house
products, cider, vinegar, paints, beer and
ale, turpentine, syrups and many others,
are in no way dependent for their im-
provement upon any chemical action or
agent in the wood. On the contrary, it is
the inactivity of whatever agent may be
in the wood that is sought. It is for this chiefly. Glue is extensively employed for

the natural resources of the country. In-
vitations are to be extended to the mem-
Ip bers of both houses of congress and to the
inland waterways conunisaion. The im-
portance and manner in which the sub-
ject is to be considered are indicated in the
President's letter to tie governors, which
was made public at the White House to-
day. The letter follows:
"The natural resources of the territory
of the United States were at the time of
settlement, richer, more varied, and more
available than those of any other equal
area on the surface of the earth. The de-
velopment of these resources has given us
for more than a century, a rate of in-
crease in population and wealth undream-
ed of by the men who founded our gov-
ernment and without parallel in history.
It is obvious that the prosperity which
we now enjoy rests directly upon these
resources. It is equally obvious that the
vigor and success which we desire and
foresee for this nation in the future must
have this as its ultimate material basis.
Looking to the Future.
"In view of these evident facts it seems
to me time for the country to take ac-
count of its natural resources and to im-
quire how long they are likely to last.
We are prosperous now; we should not
forget that it will be just as important
to our descendants to be prosperous in
their time as it is to us to be prosperous
in our time.
"Recently I expressed the opinion that
there is no other question now before the
nation of equal gravity with the question
of the conservation of our natural re-
sources; and I added that it is the plain
duty of those of us who, for the moment,
are responsible, to make inventory of the
natural resources which have been handed
down to us, to forecast as well as we
may the needs of the future, and so to
handle the great resources of our pros-
perity as not to destroy in advance all
hope of the prosperity of our descend-
Welfare of Communities.
"It is evident that the abundant nat-
ural resources on which the welfare of this
nation rests are becoming depleted, and in
not a few cases are already exhausted.
This is true of all portions of the United
States; it is especially true of the longer
settled communities of the east. The grav-
ity of the situation must, I believe, appeal
with special force to the governors of the
States because of their close relations to
the people and their responsibility for the
welfare of their communities. I have
therefore decided, in accordance with the
suggestion of the inland waterways com-
mission, to ask the governors of the
States and Territories to meet at the
White House on May 13, 14, and 15, to
confer with the President and with each
other upon the conservation of the natu-
"It gives me great pleasure to invite
you to take part in this conference. I
should be glad to have you select three
citizens to accompany you and to attend
the conference as your assistants or ad-
visers. I shall also invite the senators

slip the hook through the hole beginning
at the point 2, shown in the accompanying
picture. Then drive the gutter into the
tree, opened with the broad axe, let the
hook slip up until the part from 4 to 11
braces the gutter, then drive the point
into the tree. Thus it is impossible for
the gutters to fall out and hook is not in
the way at all. The gutters are braced
for scraping, also. One hook will hold the
gutter if used midway; if preferred, two
may be used, one at each end.

Abolish the Stock Flchamge Ticker,

the ticker is made to spread broadcast
false and fictitious quotations of the value
of the corporate securities held by the
"high financiers" to enable them to un-
load on the outside public. They make
fake sales, which are run off on the ticker
as genuine, and the public, believing that
the sales have been actually made, are
fooled into purchasing them at the ticker
prices. When the financiers have unload-
ed a sufficient quantity the prices are de-
pressed by them in the same manner, to
the great loss of the persons who bought
them at the fictitious ticker prices, and
then the financiers buy them back and un-
load them again, and so the endless chain
is kept up. It is a regular bunco game.

It may be answered that it may prove
difficult to show by legal proof who the

be sent over the ticker, but whoever does
this must have some confidential clerk in
his employ who would be able to furnish

"ARt YOU GETTING ANYWHERE."
By & Kiser, in Chicago Record Herald.
You are rushing, you are straining, with a grim look ao your face;
You are turning from all pleasures; in your breast peace has no place;
You have ceased to find contentment in the nooks you used to know;
You are straining, you are striving through the dark days and the fair,
But, oh, mirthless, eager brother, are you getting anywhere?
In your haste you have forgotten how to linger or to smile
When a child looks up and greets you or would elaim your care a while;
Though the wild rose sheds its petals in the lonely pasture still
And glad breezes sway the blossoms in the orchard on the hill,
You are too much in a hurry, aad too occupied to care;
But with all your given endeavors, are you getting anywhere?
You have fled from sweet contemnment; trouble haunts you in your dreams,
It is long since you have loitered on the banks of shaded streams
That go singing to the pebbles they have made so clean and white
And polished at their leisure and their pleasure day and night;
You no longer know the solace that is in a sweet old air,
But with all your ceaseless moiling, are you getting anywhere?

FRANCE HAS FAR-SIGHTED FOREST
France has under way a far-sighted for-
est policy which will require two centuries
before the work reaches its greatest effi-
ciency. The plan covers the reforestation
of vast tracts of denuded land and the
work is in the hands of 4,000 trained for-
esters in the pay of the Republic and a
large number of men employed by the
Consul General R. P. Skinner tells how
this work is being done by a great nation
keenly alive to the necessity of doing it,
and determined that it shall be done well,
though years and centuries are consumed
in the doing. Colbert, in the reign of
Louis XIV, exclaimed: "France will per-
ish for lack of wood," and his prophecy
was coming true a century and a half
later when the French people waked to
the peril which threatened them and call-
ed a halt.
Their forests were vanishing as are
those in the United States today, but the
depletion had gone even farther than it
has yet gone in America. France com-
menced protecting and restoring its wood-
ed areas nearly a century ago, and has
stuck to the task ever since, but so much
yet remains to do that Mr. Skinner says
in his report:
"The work is slow. It will require prob-
ably 200 years to bring it up to its max-
imum effectiveness. But the time is fore-
seen when existing damaged forests will
be reconstituted, and when all the waste
spaces will be replanted to the point of
proper proportion to insure the conserva-
tion of the water supply, and to furnish
the timber and wood required by the
population. The effect upon private land-
owners of this public work has been most
salutary. HWhere absolutely bald moun-
tains have been replanted, very surprising
local results are now visible to all ob-
servers. This is especially true in the
Hautes Alpes which had the unenviable
reputation of being the poorest depart-
ment in France, and is, in fact, one of the
few from which the United States has re-
ceived several thousand French immi-
grants. There are now many artificially
planted forests in this department of 25
years' standing, and in the bottomland
below, conditions have so improved that
a state of general prosperity prevails."
The plan of the French foresters is com-
prehensive. It embraces the care of for-
est land, planting of trees, fixation of
dunes near the coasts to prevent the drift-
ing of sand upon agricultural land, cor-
rection of mountain streams, regulation
of pasture land, utilization of water in
pastoral and forest regions, and the sur-
veillance of river fishing and fish culture.
This comprehensive service extends to ev-
ery part of the Republic.
The area of the National Forests of the
United States exceeds twenty-fold the
national and communal forests of France,
but the problems are the same. France
has been longer at the work and when it
began its forests were in a worse condi-
tion than ours are now, but not worse
than our privately owned forests will be
if present methods continue.
Consul General Skinner concludes his re-
port with this suggestion to those in
America who have shown sufficient inter-
est in the matter to write him on the
"If correspondents could penetrate, as
the writer has done, the almost inacces-
sible mountain villages of this country,
and there discover the enthusiastic French
forester at work, applying scientific meth-
ods which cannot come to complete frui-
tion before two or three hundred years,
they would retire full of admiration and
surprise and carry the lesson back to the

JUST A PERSONAL WORD.
If you are reading these lines and you
owe the Record for subscription, don't
stop until you have sent it $3. It costs
$25,000 a year to conduct this publication.
We are dependent upon our subscribers to
help us meet that expense.
The Record is a paper with a policy.
It is here for a purpose. Our friends-
and, God bless them, unless they are too
closely allied with the enemies of the in-
dustry, every naval stores man is our
friend-tell us that the Record has been
worth thousands, yea hundreds of thous-
ands of dollars to the producers of naval
stores alone. If our humble efforts in
their behalf during the past five years
have been of benefit to them we feel re-
paid for the scars and wounds that our
enemies have tried to inflict upon us. We
only ask now that our readers merely
help us to the extent of what they owe
and no more. This publication has never
sought or received special favors.
The late H. A. McEachern, the best
friend the producers of naval stores ever
had, told the writer shortly before his
death, that every operator who had in-
vested in a subscription to the Industrial
Record, had received a thousand per cent
profit on his small yearly investment. We
can only hope that the words of our dead
friend, as applied to the past, may apply
as well to the future. We shall do our
And now we ask every operator who
has purposely or inadvertently gotten be-
hind in his subscription to the Industrial
Record to send his check for $3. The ag-
gregate will mean much for us. This
is the Thanksgiving season, and soon the
have seen the holiday season approach in
the past with more money possibly in
our pockets-but the storm is passing.
The night brings out the stars.
And here's to a happy and contented
holiday season for us all!
WHO IS "TANKING" ROSINS?
For the past thirty days the prices of
common rosins have declined on an aver-
age of $1.10 to $1.25 a barrel. On the
22d of October, A. B. C. grades were selling
for $4.10. Today they sold at $2.80. We
say the prices have "declined." That is a
good market word. A more matter-of-
fact statement, however, would be to say
they have been "pushed down by the com-
bine." It is no new story. This is the
season when commons are moving and
pales are not. Consequently Mr. Shotter
is only repeating his tactics of the past
to push down that product which is being
marketed, maintaining a high price on
that product which is NOT coming into
the market. That is "business strategy,"
as he sees it. The Record is informed, as
evidence of Shotter's bear methods, that
outside or independent buyers have, dur-
ing the present week, offered and bought
rosins on the Savannah market at sixty
five cents a barrel more than the com-
bine's bid. The combine, however, would
hold its bid at its same low water figure
in order to scoop in the remainder at their
own depressed buying prices. The past
week has shown the deliberate determina-
tion of the combine to keep the prices
down in spite of the fact that conditions
were at hand that could easily have boost-
ed the market to something like legiti-
By the way, the Shotter combination
has been assiduously attributing the low
price of spirits to the alleged fact that
some of it was "held in tanks"-a sub-
terfuge, of course, and a poor one at that.
The question now is, who is "tanking"
WELL, WELL, WE EXPECTED IT.
The factorage houses owned by Mr.
Shotter-one S. P. Shotter, of Savannah,
if the operators have occasion to recall
him-have ordered their advertisements in
the Record stopped. This action was
concerted, it appears. As the house in
Mobile, and the house in Jacksonville both
notified the office at the same time, almost
the same hour. This action came a week
or two ago, but we have been so busy
with more important matters that we
really forgot to mention it. Now the
Record is not in the slightest embar-
rassed on account of it, nor is the editor
of this paper in the least surprised or
offended at that action. Mr. Shotter's ad-
vertising will find more congenial sur-
roundings in the columns of his own pub-
lication, the Savannah Naval Stores Re-
view. This publication has waged war
on Shotter's schemes to depress prices of
naval stores during the buying seasons
for five years. It will keep it up for years
to come, or just so long as he and his
associates play with the operators, juggle
with their products and restrain legiti-
mate trading that should be governed by
the natural, laws of supply and demand.
Now as to Mr. Shotter's factorage
houses, they are welcome to leave our
columns. His agents have in times past
begged the Record for space. They may
do so in the future.
And we are here to say once and for all,
the Industrial Record could have been
Christmas season will be at hand. We thousands of dollars richer today had it
championed a different policy from that
which has been its first consideration from
the day it was born. It will never be-
lieve that Wrong is Right. It will never
change its policy. It will never leave
the firing line as long as there is an
enemy in front of its guns.
TIME WILL BRING ITS REMEDIES.
The Record has received scores of let-
ters this week from operators commend-
ing its editorial discussion, in the last
issue, of the naval stores situation today.
One of these letters is from the president
of the Association, Mr. J. G. Boyd, whose
wise counsel should be given considera-
tion by every operator. We thank our
friends. It has always been the policy of
this journal to speak out openly and
frankly and to give its views of the sit-
uation regardless of fear or favor. It
will always adhere strictly to that policy.
The general financial conditions that are
widespread are not of our making. The
money stringency has no more to do with
the turpentine industry than with any
other of a thousand industries that are
suffering because of it. It is unfortunate,
however, that the turpentine industry
should have this general money panic
come along coincident with a long drawn
out series of manipulated markets on the
part of the buyers, that is the combine.
Two evils are worse than one. It is
still worse that Mr. Shotter, not content
with hammering spirits down for merce-
nary motives, should now turn his bear
tactics on rosins. Regardless of all of
this, however, time will bring its reme-
dies. We can wait. In the meantime, as
we have said before, let us organize. Let
us get closer together than we have ever
been before. Let us restrict our opera-
tions to the lowest possible minimum. Let
us train for the fray by first getting
THE PASSING OF THE WHITE PINE.
The Government Is Working on a Reforest-
ation Method for Restoring the
Fine Old Tree to the Trade.
The position which the United States
has held as a lumber-producing nation has,
perhaps, been due more to white pine
than to any other wood. The timber of
this valuable tree which has played a
most important part in the material de-
velopment of the nation is fast disappear-
ing and now it is as costly as the finest
Rev. Elward Everett Hale, the chaplain
of the Senate, who has always taken an
interest in forestry, deplores the passing
of white pine as our foremost wood, and
tells how in his lifetime he has seen the
day when "the masts of every vessel that
sailed the Seven Seas were made from
New England grown pine; while today
very little white pine is cut in New Eng-
land big enough to furnish a good-sized
spar." He tells also, to illustrate the
increasing cost of the wood, that he or-
dered a set of bookshelves on which the
cabinet-maker made a price, and then
asked whether they should be of mahog-
any or white pine.
The white pine production has shifted
from New England to the Lake States,
and Michigan was the leading lumber-
producing State for twenty years, from
1870 to 1890, with a supremacy based on
white pine. In these two decades the cut
was 160 billions of board feet, valued, at
the point of production, at not less than
two billions of dollars, or nearly half as

much again as the value derived from all
the gold fields of California from their
discovery in the late forties until the
present. The rich forests of Michigaa
were once thought inexhaustible and lum-
bering continued in a most reckless man-
ner for years. Suddenly the people awoke
to the- fact that the thoughtless destrue-
tion of the trees had thrown 6,000,00
of acres on the delinquent tax list. These
white pine barrens point to the terrible
penalty of wasting the forest resources
which should have been the heritage of
all future generations.
An idea of the increasing scarcity of
white pine timber is given by the New
York F. O. B. quotations, on a basis of
carload lots. "Uppers," of the best grade,
cost $97 to $114 a thousand board feet
and the "selects" or next lower grade cost
$79.50 to $99.50. Men who are not yet
middle-aged remember the time when
these grades could be purchased at $15 to

$76 to $80, offer another bais of compari-
son which indicates the condition of the
market for white pine.
The best stands of this timber now in
this country are in scattered sections in
Minnesota, New England and parts of
Idaho. The species in Idaho is sometimes
called silver pine. Some of the country's
best white pine is found on the Indian
reservations in Minnesota and Wisconsin
and scattered stands are found in the
states of Wyoming, Montana, Colorado
and one or two other States. At the pres-
ent rate of cutting the tree will soon be
practically a thing of the past. The small
stands in the National forests are incon-
siderable, but they will be managed with
the greatest conservatism by the Govern-
ment through the Forest Service, and
through this method and practice of re-
forestation, it may be hoped that the
fine old tree will furnish timber for other

Make Money in Jacksonville Real Estate
TEN DOLLARS STARTS YOU
WrE HAVE DECIDED TO PLACE ON SALE a Special Fall Com-
V bination of Investment Jacksonville Real Estate that will at once ap-
peal to every man and woman who can place as much as $10 a month in a
real estate savings account. The combination at the low price made is just
as sure to bring a fifty to one hundred per cent profit as Jacksonville is sure to
grow. It takes in three of the most rapidly developing sections of Jackson-
ville. It "corners the situation and makes the small investor absolutely sure
of his profits. By buying three lots in the Special Fall combination the in-
vestor can save $150 on the present selling prices. The three lots (any choice
from plats) in this combination, and their present selling prices follow:
Murray Hill Heights, approached by beautiful Highway
avenue, paved, or from St. Johns drive, paved, near the
new million-dollar shops of the Seaboard Air Line Rail-
way, and a subdivision that is all white, and extremely
popular, present selling price
Pine Crest Park, near the corner of Myrtle avenue and
Kings road, in front of the Edward Waters College site
and adjacent to more new cottages than any other section
of Jacksonville, present selling price
East Grand Park, approached by beautiful Kings road, a
magnifcent suburb, high-class, clean, strictly white and
rapidly developing, present selling price
We will sell these combina-
tions, limited number, and
until otherwise advised, for
The present selling prices of these lots make a total of $700. They can
be bought only in these combinations at the phenomenally low rate of $550,
and on the easy terms of $10 cash and $10 a month without interest or taxes.
Only a limited number of these combinations will be sold. Therefore, ACT QUICK.
Leave the selection to us and we will give you absolutely the best choice unsold, guaranteeing
you at least one corner out of the three lots. We issue a straight contract for deed. Our titles
are absolutely perfect. We guarantee every lot high and dry.
PLACE SAVINGS IN JACKSONVILLE DIRT.
Jacksonville, the gateway to Florida, is the most rapidly growing city in all the South,
perhaps in the country. Devastated by fire six years ago, it is today a city of over fifty thou-
sand people and growing at a rate that is phenomenal. It is a cosmopolitan city-made up
of a fine citizenry from all sections of the world. It is one of the cleanest, healthiest, most
beautiful cities of its size in America. It is a city of magnificent homes, churches, schools. It
is a city with a great future. Ships from its harbor reach every port of the world. Great
trunk railway lines connect the four corners of the United States. It is a city of unprece-
dented opportunities for safe, sound, profitable real estate investments. It has never had a
boom. It wants none. The rapidly increasing values follow natural causes. The city is
growing so rapidly the suburbs are fast becoming the centers of business and residential ac-
tivities. Real estate values in the city alone increased over a million last year-the suburbs
increased in a greater proportion.
LOOK US UP!
The Jacksonville Development Co. has a capital stock of $500,000 and assets of $800,000.
Its officers and directors are among the leading bankers and business men of the South. As to
