Georgia and Florida Sawmill Association Meets Next at Tifton,
Tiftne, Ga. Nov. 0.-The next meet-
ing of the Georgia & Florida Sawmill As-
soeation will be held at the Myon Hotel,
Tiften, Ga., Tuesday, December 10th, at
10 o'clock a. m.
There should be a large attendance at
this meeting. Every manufacturer is de-
sirous of getting a close touch on condi-
tins as they exist today, and also get
information that will influence his opera-
tions for the immediate future, as well as
for the coming year. We earnestly hope
that you will be on hand.
B. C. HARRELL,
Some days ago Secretary Harrell, of the
Association, sent out a circular letter to
the manufacturers in Georgi and Florida
for a report as to the number of mills
closed down and the number that would
close down December ast; the reduction in
wages at the various mills and the per
cent of reduction, which makes a rather
interesting showing. We give below 28
of these eplies as a fair specimen of the
answers to Mr. Harrell letter, which will
be read with more or less interest by the
trade at home as well as up North. They

Rumor has it that the Ensign Lumber
Co., of Jacksonville, Fla., and Waycross,
Ga., will close out its business on January
1st and will enter the trade as a whole-
saler. Mr. Ensign, the head of these con-
eerns, is one of the most popular lumber-
men in Georgia and Florida.
Cassius F. Smith, better known as
"Cash" Smith, one of the most prominent
lumbermen in the South, was among the
Georgis lumbermen who attended the
meeting of lumbermen held in Memphis
on November 14th. Mr. Smith is the pres-
ident of the Oemulgee River Lumber Com-
pany of Lumber City, and is popular
among the lumbermen of this section.
"Cash" Smith, a he is familiarly called by
his friends, came to this State in the
early '9Vs, saw the opportunities in yel-
low pine and bought heavily. In less
than twelve months he had made a profit
of $100,000. Since then he has steadily
advanced until he is now known as one of
the lumber kings of Southwest Georgia.

Interviews by a Naval Stores Review
representative with leading factors this
week brought out the fact that up to this
time the cutting of new boxes has been
the smallest in many years up to this
Factors, one and all, stated that the
producers had been forced to greatly cur-
tail box cutting from sheer inability to
obtain ready money with which to operate.
"Labor is more plentiful than for sev-
eral years past," said one of the largest
factors, "but it is doing the producers no
good except in enabling them to hold down
the wage scale. I was over in Alabama
this week and found many negroes, dis-
charged from railroads, sawmills and oth-
er places of service, were tramping the
roads hunting work. Naval stores pro-
ducers will not suffer from inability to
get labor, as in the past two or three
years. That much is certain as to this
winter and the coming year, as indica-
tions are now."
"Are wages being held down?" he was
"Yes, I have seen a number of payrolls
recently and in not a single instance was
more than one and a half cents being paid
for box cutting. The rate has been two
cents, so there is a reduction of 25 per
cent in this labor item alone. I believe
there will be a reduction along the whole
line, for dipping, etc., the coming season.
If wages could be generally reduced 25
per cent it would be of vast assistance
if we go up against a dull year in business
as so many now fear."
Another factor reiterated those expres-
sions and added:
"I hope the producer will show gqd
hard sense and hold-down the box eat at
least by fifty per cent. There is no use
in sacrificing the virgin timber, and that
is what it will mean to cut many boxes
with the outlook as gloomy as its now
for values. The virgin timber should be
saved and the old boxes worked. If the
price of labor of all lasses is held down-
and with labor idle this will not be dii-
cult to do-it will pay better to let the
virgin timber alone and work all the old
boxes, even if the price of low grade
resins is lower as a result. I believe sup-
plies will be cheaper next year and with
wages lower, common rosins could be made
in this way at less cost than for several
years past, but if the producers cut many
new boxes they will kill the values of
turps and fine rosin. I am satisfied they
will not do this."
feators continue to advise their eas-
tomers not to even consider cutting as
many boxes as last year. t is recognized
that it would be suicidal for them to make
a large crop of turps and pale resins.
Producers are more incined than ever to
follow the factors' advice-especially with
money so seare-and it is probable that
they will report more to the old boes,
save their timber, and by reduction in
wages and general economy weather what-
ever conditions may be ahead.-Savanah

GEORGIA SAWMILLS WILL IIAUGU-
RATE NEW WAE 8CALE IN
Atlanta, Ga.-The sawmill m of Geor-
gia will institute a new wage seale for
unskilled labor at their mills beginning
with the new year. For a long time past
the lumbermen have been seeking to at-
tain uniformity as to the prices to be paid
for the various kinds of labor and while
no concerted plan of agreement exists as
to the new seale, information is that such
a sale will go into effect on January 1.
In arriving at this decision the lumber-
men are only meeting conditions which
exist in other parts of the South. It is
further stated that the rgest majority of
the Georgia sawmills will decrease the
number of working hours per day, chang-
ing the present plan of working from
"sun up to sun down" to a day of tea
hours, or possibly less. A number of mills
have already adopted the ten hour day for
labor, and they report that the results
have been entirely satisfactory. The re-
arrangement of the unskilled labor seale
will in a great number of instances re-
sult in a reduction of the payroll, but in
some it will have the effect of increasing
the amount of wages paid out, the oe
being an ofaet to the other.

"This fright which has seized the public
is unreasonable in many respects. There
is as much money-and more-in the
country today than there was a month
ago. The money has not been burned
up; it is here. The country is richer to-
day than ever before. Take the West, for
instance. Ten years ago its farms were
plastered with mortgages; today they are
covered with crops which are bringing
higher prices than ever before. The buy-

greater than it ever was. There can be
no great diminution of trade as long as
that condition maintains."

Financing the Crop Movement.
An Apparently excellent Plan to Meet Thi Annual Emergency a the
Financial World Proposed by New York Expert.
Clyde Steamship Company
"About this time," as the "Old Farm-
ers' Almanac" used to announce, look for
more or les difficulty in the matter of
obtaining cash for the moving of the crops.
This little pinch arrives regularly each
year. This year, it is especially inoppor-
tune and unwelcome, because it comes at
a period when both people and banks are
hoarding their resources and are not will-
ing to send currency out into its benefi-
cent work unless some sort of a premium
is attached thereto.
I have never believed fully in the bogy
of crop moving stringency, and I do not
now, but it is not to be questioned that
circumstances this year are different from
those we have seen for many seasons.
There is a stringency of money, and he
who denies that would deny the tides of
the ocean. For what is in ordinary years
not much more than the fiction of Wall
Street, is just now rather more than that,
mainly because of its sentimental effect
upon the hoarders.
I have no doubt that ways and means
will be found to market the products of
the farms, which are really the fountain
head of the actual wealth of our country.
Meantime, it would be the part of wisdom
to devise for some future years a plan
that would mak impossible hereafter any
money pinch at the time when nature is
pouring the fullness of her rich rewards
to man in the lap of the nation.
State Clearing Hoe to Ime Convenient
One of the best schemes I have seen is
that proposed by D. C. Imboden, a well-
known financial expert of New York city.
He would issue certificates against ship-
ping documents in hand and warehouse re-
ceipts, and he thus explains his plan more
"Let the national and state banks of
each State immediately organize them-
selves into a state clearing house associa-
tion with headquarters at its financial
centre, and issue its time certificates bear-
ing 6 per cent interest from date and in
denominations of five, ten, twenty, fifty
and one hundred dollars. These certifi-
cates to be issued against shipping docu-
ments in hand or warehouse receipts, the
association to act as a clearing house, as
it were, for the passing through of such
documents and the collection of the actual
money from the points of final destination
and eventually deliver the money to the
party through whom the documents were
obtained and take up its certificates. The
certificates to be paid for in legal tender
plus the accumulated interest. The cer-
tiflcates to be made payable to the order
of the bank to whom they are issued and
the bank to endorse the certificate.
"These certificates could be printed and
the endorsement printed on the back ready
for the signature of the bank. As a mat-
ter of convenience and a temptation for
the people who have hoarded up their cash
to buy these certificates with their cash,
the accruing interest or value of the cer-
tifiates every 10 days could be printed
on the back of the certificate, so that a
person having money locked up could see
at a glance what the certificate would be
worth a certain time hence.
"An illustration of this plan would be
that a bank would handle its business in
its regular numamiiir up to the time of for-
warding its customers' drait against ship-
ping documents, wiwn instead of forward-
ing it to the banks in other states for col-
lection, or possible through a Iank of its
own state, it would be forwarded direct to
its Clearing House.
Used by Banks Instead of Any Form of
"The clearing house would immediately
issue its certificates in payment for the
draft and send these certificates to the
bank in lieu of currency. Then the bank
with these certificates in hand would pay
them out against checks drawn upon it by
the produce shipper, for payment of the
produce to the farmer or others. All of
the banks in the association jointly and
the local bank individually being respon-
sible for the certificate would make the
certificate almost, if not quite, as accept-
able as currency, and particularly so if the
holder could see that the longer he held
the certificate the more it would be worth,
while if he held cash he would get no in-
crease in value.
"When the clearing house would event-
ually receive cash, the cash would be used
to take up the certificates plus the inter-
est. To meet this interest the associa-
tion should discount the banks' papers and
also make a collection charge, sufficient
to meet the interest and expenses. In
other words, charge interest and expenses
until the cash was actually in hand and
the certificates redeemed with the cash.
"The banks and the association would
naturally want these certificates cancelled
as early as possible, as until they were
cancelled they would be responsible for
the same. The parties who would likely
be least interested in them being cancelled
would be some of the holders who had
idle money, as they would be holding a
six per cent paper without any expense
of looking up security or negotiating a
loan. However, the association and state
could be protected against this, by the
time limit of the certificate, and interest
not to run beyond date for cancellation
of the certificates.
"As an additional safeguard, the asso-
ciation could invite the inspection of the
national and state bank examiners into
the affairs of the association and when-
ever in the opinion of the national or
state examiners the association should not
issue further certificates, the said exam-
iner should so renest and the association
should not issue any certificates beyond
significance of the situation cannot be
missed. It answers- effectually all panic
Do you recall a time when labor was so
fully employed and so well paid? Anoth-
er effective argument against the timid
sduls who need nothing more than a two

Getting right down to brass tacks, it is
a well known fact that money is tight ev-
ey year during the crop moving season.
This is, roughly, from September first
to January first. This fall has been no
exception. Bumper crops again, combined
with the frenzied antics of a coterie of
stock gamblers on Wall street, has caused
the banks to adopt extra cautious meth-
In this all there is not a feature that
should alarm anyone. The bankers have
acted wisely, and their banks are in bet-
ter condition than usual. Failures are
fewer than for years. As a matter of
faet, the speculative crowd who really
amused the flurry are coming in for severe
discipline, and it is thought in conserva-
tive quarters that much good is bound to
result from the clean-up now in progress.

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 cause. 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.

United fruit Company's Great
It is a good time just now to read and
inwardly digest the report of the United
Fruit Company for the fiscal year which
ended September 30. As has been well
said by a contemporary, this is one of the
most remarkable statements ever present-
ed by a great American corporation." It
is, in fact, an astounding exhibition of
success and an object lesson in achieved
Readers will keenly appreciate the im-
portance of this report, when it is said
that the net earnings of the United Fruit
Company for dividends of $6,18,927, after
deducting charges of every description,
were equal to 33.4 per cent. on the out-
standing stock, or more than four times
the 8 per cent dividend rate.
The United Fruit Company has now
completed eight full fiscal years. Dur-
ing this period the company has earned
net for dividends a total of $0,253,938,
of which $823,145, or 44 per cent., has
been returned for stockholders; has in-
creased capitalization $10,051,000, or 80.5
per cent., at the same time that net earn-
ings for dividends have jumped over 290
per cent.; has developed one of the larg-
est sugar plantations in the world, with
an output last year of 123,146,000 pounds
of sugar, as compared with but 19,000,000
pounds daring the first year of operation.
The company is now operating nearly 1b0

The 1907 dividend balance is 65.1 per
cent greater than for the year 1906, which
in turn showed a 132 per cent increase over
the preceding 11 months, again in the
two years of 279 per cent.
The enormous increase in the earnings
of this company for the past year prove
clearly two things: first, that the people
of this country are still keen in their de-
sire for a luxury, which the tropical fruit
undoubtedly is, and second, that they
have plenty of money with which to re-
gale themselves upon the products of Cen-
tral American and the West Indies.
In this enormous business can be seen
a complete refutation of the mournful
prophecies of the croakers to the effect
that the consuming power of the nation
is being rapidly contracted. In the face
of such sunlight as is presented by this
United Fruit Company report, the pessi-
mist is in great danger of becoming blind-

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Song of the Small Depositor.
I used to cring and cower at the window of the teller
And wish the floor would open and drop me to the cellar;
1 handed him my money and thanked him for his kindness,
He looked at me blankly as though struck by sudden blindness.
But now I get the ear of the genial cashier
And a nod and smile is coming from the stately president,
While the teller speaks my name as though I were known to fame
And in bows of cordial welcome all the once stiff spines are bent.
I used to creep in softly to deposit fifteen dollars
And hope they wouldn't notice I was wearing paper collars,
The teller took my money-and I knew he did a favor,
And I shuffled out as humbly as the rudest misbehaver.
But now they bow and smile as they count my little pile,
And they murmer that I'm helping to rejuvenate the land,
And the stately president with respect and gladness blent
Asks about my wife and children while he shakes me by the hand.
I used tto fear the teller and his big heavy glasses
Through which he stared a stare as cold as snow-filled mountain passes,
But now he makes me linger and narrate the latest story
And he tells me that I represent the nation's pride and glory.
Oh, now I have the ear of the smiling-faced cashier,
And my fingers know the gripping of the stately president,
While the teller bows to me just as nice as nice can be,
As he counts each dime and dollar and each nickel and each cent.
