Let Florida Naval Stores Go Through Florida
The Record hopes that an effort will be
made through the Florida Railroad Com-
mission ad by legislation, to accomplish
the shipment of Florid naval stores
through Florida por.
The great bulk of these products are
shipped, either coastwise or foreign, and
according to resolutions adopted by the
Jacksonville Board of Trade last Wednes-
day, could ad should be handled through
the ports of this State. Such a move
would require the organisation and equip-
meat of added distributing agencies, or
selling facilities, at the Florida ports, or
the remora here of the Savannah com-
paies, but this, it is held, is exactly what
should ocur, and the sooner it is acoom-
plished the better for this industry in
The matter has been brought to the at-
tention of the Florida railroad commis-
sion at the instance of the Jacksonville
Board of Trade, amd it has also been taken
up with the Governor with a view of hav-
ing it brought to the attention of the first
sesion of the legislature. Herewith is re-
produced a letter addressed by Mr. W. M.
Toomer, presidet of the Naval stores
Export Company, to the Governor on this
subject which will doubtless be of inter-
est to the business men of this Hty aad
Letter t the Govrmr.
Hon. N. B. Broward, Governor, Talla-
My Dear Sir-You realize, as we all do,
I am sure, aad deplore the fact that the
naval stores industry in Florida is now
almost prstrate. It is controlled by in-
fuenes operating chiefly in Savannah and
whose seeess is only continued by reason
of the feet that Florida's product (about
one-half of the entire naval stores crop)
is in large part forced to Savannah, and
this, you will observe, not only taxes the
Florid producer with the added cost of
the haul to Savannah, but makes it more
dileuHt for the few small independent
distributing companies to care for the re-
eeipts at that market and prevent its ar-
bitrary depresion to a point below the
cost of production. It is not only within
the power of these infuenes, but they
have actually demonstrated in the last
three weeks their capacity to eat the prices
of middle and low grade rosins in half.
The naval stores erop this year is about
10 per cent or 55600 barrels short of what
it was last year; there are about 38,00
barrels of turpentine held by inedpendent
companies and producers, making a total
of 93,000 barrels of turpentine not acees-
'Sle to the conaumptive demand of the
wcrld, and yet, last year the world took
and paid for the entire crop at from 80
to 70 cents a gallon, while the price today
by reason of market conditions at Sa-
vannah, entirely ictitions aad manipulated
to the ruin of Florida, is less than 45
cents a gallon.
A nmeam r s ruestedl
There wea a number of remedies for this
situation, and one of them is to induce
the shipment of Florida's product to Flor-
ida ports. This can be accomplished, in
my opinion, best by a reduction of the
port rates in Florida, and on this subject
I have addressed a communication recently
to the Hon. R. Hudson Burr, chairman
of the railroad commission, enclosing him
a copy of a resolution adopted by the
board of trade of Jacksonville. Of course,
it cannot be expected that the railroad
companies will cooperate in this movement
while they are enjoying the added revenue
from the longer haul and while their ter-
minal companies in Savannah and in
Brunswick are reaping the storage and
forwarding charges. On the contrary,
they may be expected to resist it, and in
addition thereto delay as long as possi-
ble the development of their terminal fa-
cilities at Jacksonville, Tampa, Fernan-
dina and Pensacola.
Inspection in Florida.
A more direct and complete remedy l.)r
the situation would be the passage of a oill
requiring the inspection of naval stores
produced in Florida, that is to say the
gauging of the spirits and grading of tl '
rosins, before they are shipped from -he
State. This, under the present law, wuuld
.bring this product to the Florida ports to
be inspected and also to be sol 1 and would
take from the hands of th3 interests vho
dominate the Savannah market the moat
powerful implement with which they are
now punishing this industry in Florida.
It has been suggested that the Florida
legislature would be convened in a called
session early next year. If this is to oc-
cur, I beg that you will consider the pro-
priety of bringing, in your own way to
the attention of the legislature the pas-
sage of such a bill. I shall take pleasure
in preparing the bill and presenting it with
such arguments as to my mind demand
its passage, to the legislature.
Jacksonville's Port Facilities.
The opposition, if any, to such legisla-
tion, will doubtless argue in favor of Sa-
vannah's exceptional facilities for export-
ing in part or entire cargo lots. The re-
ply to such a suggestion is that Jackson-
ville now has a twenty-four foot channel
to the sea, and this depth of water will
float any vessel which has carried naval
stores out of the port of Savannah in
1907; but the trouble is that the railroad
terminals at the port of Jacksonville have
either inadequate depth of water at their
pierhead lines (which could be deepened at
nominal expense) or else their water front
property, with twenty-eight feet of water
in one instance, at the bulk-head line, has
not been improved and will remain unim-
proved as long as these companies can en-
joy this additional revenue for the longer
haul into Georgia. The reply from Pensa-
cola and Fernandina is that either of these
ports has water enough to float any ves-
sel that can enter the port of Savannah.
I beg to remain, very respectfully,
W. M. TOOMER,
Prsident Naval Stores Export Company.
An Appeal to Common Sense in Busine.
The financial situation has shown decid-
ed improvement during the last week.
Money has been a little easier; banks in
the reserve cities have been shipping some
money to the country; liquidation has
been in progress, easily and on a some-
what limited scale yet with appreciably
good results. The fact is, the banks are
moving toward a resumption of full cash
Business men have stood nobly by the
banks. They have been patient, helpful
and courageous. There has been a flnan-
cial famine, but men have pulled their
belts tighter and have trudged along ex-
changing grim pleasantries and helping
each other on the way. Now money is in
sight, and when they get there will they
maintain their conservative poise, their
grit and self-control, or will they gorge
themselves and bring on a colic? The
expression "It is up to the banks" has
been frequently heard during the last
month, but in a short time it will be "up
to the people," for this reason: When all
restrictions on the payment of money are
withdrawn, the business interests of the
country and individuals will have it in
their power to conserve values, maintain
confidence and help the situation along
or impede progress, as they please.
If, when full cash payments are re-
sumed, every man who has a claim on a
bank because he is a depositor or holds a
check or draft demands cash, if every
country bank calls on its reserve bank
for funds and if, thus, there is attempted
an immediate liquidation there can be but
one result. It is not probable that such
action will be taken by the public general-
ly, but we mention its possibility to point
out the duty of the business public.
What, then, can you, lumber dealer,
lumber manufacturer, you, any business
man or any salaried man or wage earner
who may read these lines, do to help?
These are some of the things within your
power to do:
A few business houses and multitudes of
individuals have hoarded their eash re-
ceipts. The result is an unusual amount
of currency outside of the banks. All this
money should be deposited. The currency
can do work in the banks and you will be
better off. Employees should cooperate
with their employers in this matter.
Further, the use of substitutes or
money should be continued for some time.
Individuals, firms and corporations that
have got into the habit of using their own
chfiecks for payment of employees, or in
other directions where currency was for-
merly used, should continue that practice
for a while. It is important that the cash
reserves of the banks should be protected
and that as little drain as possible should
be put upon them for the time.
In other ways also credit can be made
to take the place of cash. For example:
Instead of depositing the entire daily re-
ceipts of checks and drafts in the bank
use them so far as practicable in paying
obligations. Let the collection of these
item be. indirect rath tL-u direst. t
you are a retail lumberman and resdre a
cheek for $160 from a customer 9a1 ac-
count, particularly if it be against a bank
with which you are not doing bisinaes,
indorse that check payable to the whole-
saler that you owe. Let the wholesaler
indorse it and send it to the machinery
house that he owes; let the machinery
house indorse it and pay its debt with it;
thus a single cheek may be made to pay
several times its face value without hand-
ling of any actual cash. Notes may be
used in the same way.
The above is an illustration merely.
Consult your banker as to these thig ad
see how far and in what ways you eaa
follow this suggestion.
Do not be selfish and keep, or try to
build up, a big balsame in your bank
when you owe someome-be generous and
divide up. At the same time do not be
in too much of a hurry. Do not try to
force collections. It the situation work
out as easily as possible. Then, the first
thing you know the banks will be all
right; your accounts receivable will be
good and will be decreasing; your ac-
counts payable will be acceptable ad will
be decreasing, and you will find that buIi-
nes will be moving along, so far as the
banking situation is concern, ust as
smoothly as in any times of finanial am-
It will take time for business to resme
its former activity and volume. Hlp, do
not hurry it. liquidation is bound to
come within the next six months and it
will be done easily, with comparatively
little los and with few failures if bud-
nes m.- will continue to cooperate wth
the banks and with each other; it will
be done quickly at heavy loes aa with
many failures if business m n so will it.
This is a plain aad elementary sort of
talk which probably most of oar reader
do not need, but it is well to be reminded
of these facts. Furthermore, the gospel
of confidence, forbearance and mutual help-
fuless should be preached by every bus-
Stop being pealmitle; stop eritieldn
the banks or you debt or yur s red-
itors. Stop doing so in private as well as
in public, for them little hadhaking pri-
vate conferences do a lot of harm through
engendering suspidon and distrust. Tose
of you who employ traveling salesmen in-
struct them to talk this doctrine of con-
dence and helpfulness.
Start the business train moving, but do
it gently and slowly-not with a rear-end
collision that will smash couplings and
ditch half the ear.-Amerlaa Lumber-

ATTACK ON RAILROADS BAD BUSI-
James J. Hill, of St. Paul, executive
head of the Great Northern Railway, was
the principal speaker at the 12th annual
banquet of the Commercial Club in Kansas
"The transportation facilities of the
whole country," he said, "are and have
been unequal to its present means. They
must be made equal to the burdens they
bear, or the country cannot prosper. How
far railroad construction has been unable
to keep pace with the domestic commerce
the country even now does not realize.
"Railroad managements have met the
situation by every effort to increase
equipment and increase efficiency in opera-
tion. In both directions what they have
accomplished is little short of wonderful.
Everything that available capital, inge-
nuity, cheap service, high-priced labor and
skillful management can accomplish has
been done. The problem that remains is
both physical and financial; to bring con-
struction up to the needs of our immense
domestic commerce, and to raise the neces-
sary money to do this. If both or either
of these is impossible, it is not the fault
of the railway system. And only gross
ignorance of the truth or the malice of
disturbers can ignore the plain and true
facts. Only by improved methods of ope-
ration has the country been saved from
a blockade of traffic which would have
destroyed business activity or turned it
into a game of confusion and chance.
"Any other business is judged by its
average conducts, its average returns. The
railroad system of this country is not a
failure, as has been charged by men who
are without knowledge of facts and whose
opinion is consequently of no value. On
the contrary, it is, when judged by results,
by omedi reoards, perhaps the most con-

"The people should realize that there
is a physical limit to the capacity of a
railroad. It has been their habit to regard
the railway as a means of transportation
over which an indefinite business may be
dame, limited only by the policy or by the
wishes of its management. The truth,
of course, is that neither the desire to
serve nor the prospect of gain can get out
of the railway work beyond its ability
-Lem capital now invested in railways
is well employed, and the men in charge
of the railroads in this country have
struggled for nearly 15 years with the
greatest problem of our times-how to
move a load whose weight increases from
10 to 15 per cent a year with an engine
rwhoa power increases at the rate of about
2% per cent a year. The limit of safe,
speedy and reasonable service with exist-
iag facilities has been reached. The meas-
ure of prosperity is the ease and certain-
ty with which commodities may be moved.
The whole situation declares that we must
have more new lines, more double track,
more and greatly enlarged terminal fa-
"A year ago I said that it would re-
quire $6,500000,000 or $1,100,000,000 a year
for five years to make our railroad facil-
ities equal to the demands upon them. Al-
thofgh substantially the amount of money
suggested by me as indispensable has been
collketed and spent, the railroads have
barely held their own, and the future re-
maies to be provided for. Not less, but,
in the opinion of competent judges, more
-perhape 50 per cent more-must be
spet annually for the five years to come.
"We have read of a conflict between
righteousness and business. There can
be no such conflict, unless there is fraud
at the business end or hypocrisy and cant
at the righteousness end. If any man has
done evil, if any corporation is sinning
agNaist the laws, let him or it be punish-
ed under the law. But put an end to
wholesale denunciation and wholesale pro-
scription destructive of all credit and re-
pugnant to all sense of justice."
THEg UORMOU8 ZAR lmGS OF TH
STANDARD OIL CO.
The Standard Oil Company, notwith-
stapding a business depression, showed
t profits of $81,336,994 in 1903, and $61,-
670,110 in 1904. In 1905 net profits
reached *67,459,56, and in 1906, $83,122,-
The net profits of the company showed a
vferyitght shrinkage only during the bus-
iness reversal in 1803. As an example, in
1800 they were $19,131,470; in 1891, $16,-
331,836; n 10, $19,174,870; in 1803, $15,-
457,354, and in 1804, $15,544,325. Since
then earnings have been increasing by
leaps and bounds, and it is expected that
the net profts for the current year will
run very close to $85,000,000. These large
earnings have been made in the face of the
fact that the prices of the company's
products show comparatively little change.
Increased consumption has had more to do
with the increased earnings than anything
What the Standard Oil Company pro-
poses to do with its enormous surplus is
a question that the shareholders would
like to have answered. It is unlikely,
however, that any decision in this respect
will be reached until the corporation has
freed itself from the litigation in which
it is now involved.
From 1882 to 1907, inclusive, the Stand-
ard Oil Company shows a total surplus
after dividends of $298,185,374. Of that As a matter of fact, the surplus ac-
amount nearly $195,000,000 was accumu- cumulated during that period was only

* THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
We Will Pay You for
We are going to make the 1908 RECORD the best Turpentine and Lum-
ber paper ever published in the South-if you will give us ten minutes per
week, for which, ten minutes you will be paid.
We want a correspondent in every turpentine and lumber camp and
every commissary in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.
His duties will be to write us one letter a week, a short, plain letter telling
us anything that has happened at his camp which would be interesting to
other operators or to the factors. It will advertise your business better than
any other plan you could adopt, it will bring your name before the right kind
of people, the people who can help you, and the beauty of it is that it won't
cost you a cent.
A Cash Discount of Ten Per Cent on Every
Order for IPirning
We will pay you ten cents per letter, applying same to your subscrip-
tion, and allowing you a cash discount of ten per cent on every order for let-
terheads, envelopes, commissary checks, bill heads or other stationery. Our
prices on this elass of printing are already as low as those given by any
other firm, and with the extra discount of ten per cent it will make a big sav-
ing in your yearly printing bill.
Sign the following and mail it at once-we want to get this new feature
started by January and you should be represented.
INDUSTRIAL RECORD PUB. CO., Jacksonville, Fla.:
I accept your proposition and will act as .your correspondent at this
place, writing you a letter every Wednesday, giving you the news here, in
consideration of which you are to credit me on my subscription ten cents
each week I write you and you are to allow me a cash disoont of ten per cent
on all orders for printing I send you. t

THE LEATHER INDUSTRY AND TE
No other nation produces half as much
tanned, curried, and finished leather as
the United States, which yields over one-
fourth of the world's supply. Six hun-
dred and seventeen tanneries contribute
to this output. The raw material includes
a hundred and eight million hides and
skins, including a large number from Ar-
gentina. To tan this immense quantity
of leather, valued at over 250 million dol-
lars, last year required over a million and
a quarter cords of tanbark, worth nearly
$13,000,000, and more than six hundred
and fifty thousand barrels of tanning ex-
tract, worth $8,700,000.
Over two-thirds of the tanbark con-
sumed comes from hemlock, and over one-
fourth from oak; chestnut and other
woods contribute the remainder. More ex-
tract is secured from chestnut, however,
than from all other domestic woods com-
bined. A small quantity of extract of a
little over a thousand barrels comes from
the roots of palmetto.
Although the tanning industry is widely
distributed over the United States, the
greater part of it is carried on in the
States of Pennsylvania, New York, Michi-
gan and Wisconsin, which use more than
two-thirds of the tanning materials con-
sumed. Pennsylvania alone consumes
over nine hundred million pounds of bark
and extract, worth $8,00,000, or 37 per
cent of the total value.
Since 1900 the quantity of tanbark used
has fallen off 15 per cent, although its
value has increased. During this period
the consumption of extract increased from
07,000 to 660,000 barrels a year, of which
nearly 90,000 barrels were imported. Rel-
atively small quantities of hemlock bark
were imported from Canada, and of man-
grove bark from the West Indies and
Africa. In weight, four times as much
quebracho was imported in bark as in
extract form, but the value of the two
forms was about the same.
Bark brought the lowest price in New
Hampshire, and the highest in Oregon,
with an average of $9.30 per cord. More
than in bark the price of extract varied
widely according to the material from
which it was manufactured. The extract
of quebracho, a tree of Mexico, Central
America, South America and the West
Indies, from which seven-eighths of all im-
ported tanning materials are secured, had
an average price of $18 per barrel; and
hemlock brought $12.60 per barrel; oak
$0.90 per barrel, and chestnut $9.12 per

The Record wishes all of its readers a
Merry Clristassaand a Happy New Yeur.
This as iam season when we want to lay
aside business eare and anxieties and
devote ourselves to the happiness of
others, especially to the happiness of
those who are dependent upon us, and
who are a part of our very lives. In
doing this we take the only step that
can produce our own happiness. It mat-
trs nt whether sprits of turpentine is
forty-two cents or sixty, whether the
mill is closed down or running full time,
whether money is plentiful, or the labor
paid, the wife and the child, the mother
and the father, their aid and their coopera-
their comforting words, their encourage-
ment, their blessings are with us always
-to them we owe more than we can ever
pay; to them at least is due a bright smile
and a cheerful word, and a hearty rol-
liking jingle-bell Christmas. Let's see
that they get it. We will feel the better.
We will be the better equipped to begin
the New Year with renewed energy, with
more promising plans. And the year 1908,
seen in distance as it approaches, looks
good. It looks as if it has more in store
for us than the one that is passing. We
believe the clouds are drifting away. If
we will do our part, 1908 will be a friend
and not a foe.
iog AND THE RECORD.
The Industrial Record during 1908 will
be better, brighter, more beneficial to its
readers than ever before. That statement
alone is suflient. Readers of this publi-
eation are familiar with its past history;
are familiar with the fight it has waged
for the producing interests, for the "man
in the woods." It has waged this fight,
in season and out of season, without fear
or favor. Persons who are competent to
judge tell us that we have been worth
hundreds of thousands of dollars to the
producing interests in the naval stores
industry alone. Be that as it may, we
have always been found on the firing line,
always willing to assume and to bear all
of the responsibilities that our position as
organ of the producing interests has given
The Record will always stand for the
operators, whether it pleases or displeases
opposing interests. The Record will al-
ways be published for the purpose of in-
forming them, entertaining them, helping
them financially, industrially and in every
way that it can.
Now as to the New Year peeping at us
emphasize our first paragraph and join in
the conviction that it is bringing us better
conditions and brighter prospects. As
matters now stand we are largely the ar-
chitects of our own business futures. We
have learned the lesson of buisness ex-
travagance. We have learned the lesson
of drifting away from each other and for-
getting our organization. We have learned
the lesson of temporizing with our labor.
We will profit by our experiences and
operate in the future along more conser-
vtive and more profitable lines.
We urge that every person interested in
the production of naval stores, interested
in the manufacture of yellow pine lumber,
interested in the great commercial and
industrial advancement of the South, will
continue to read and take a keen inter-
est in the Record and we promise that the
Record shall continue to be the exponent
from over the eastern hills, we can only of their best interests.
J. P. Willipms Retires.
Mr. Caton Succeed to Presidency, With Mr. Jenning Head of a New
Savannah, Ga., Dec. 14.-After twenty-
eight years continued active and perma-
nent connection with the naval stores fac-
torage business, Mr. J. P. Williams has
withdrawn from active management of the
business founded by him in 1879. From
now on, while retaining his interest as a
stockholder in the J. P. Williams Com-
pany, and assisting it in the capacity of
a director, he will surrender the direction
of its affairs into the hands of his long-
time associate, Mr. J. A. G. Carson, who
succeeds him as president of the J. P.
Mr. Williams health has been impaired
for the past year or more, and it is due
to his desire to be entirely relieved from
the anxieties of business that the change
in the management has been made. It
will be with sincere regret that the naval
stores trade will learn of the severance of
the ties that have connected him for over
a quarter of a century with factorage
and producing trade and made him one of
the most prominent men in its develop-
ment. The best wishes of the entire trade
will be with Mr. Williams in his retire-
meat into private life.
Mr. J. A. G. Carson, who succeeds to
the presidency of the J. P. Williams Com-
pany, has been actively identified with its
history, and has been a prominent factor
in its progress since January 1, 1884. His
accession to the presidency on January 1,
1908, will mark the twenty-fourth anni-
versary of his connection with the busi-
ness. It was on March 1, 1885, that he
became a member of the firm. His life
since then has been largely devoted to
the upbuilding of the business. Identi-
MANY NHW PROJECTS FOR CURREN-
Details of many new projects for im-
proving the currency are being submitted
to the President and Secretary Cortelyon
and are receiving attention.
Measure relating directly to the cur-
rency which are being discussed among
bankers and various members of Con-
gress may be roughly grouped under four
heads-a central bank issue; a central
organirsain of the existing national
banks; the issue of additional circulation
against vahflms classes of bonds other
than United States bonds, and the issue
of circulation upon general assets with
the security of a guaranty fund.
fed with it over so long a period, and for
the past three or four years practically
directing the entire business while Mr.
Williams devoted his energies to the de-
velopment of his important railroad en-
terprises, Mr. Carson is today one of the
best informed and best known men in the
naval stores business. Prominently iden-
tified with the financial world, he is in
position to judge of business matters gen-
erally, and his advice to the customers
of the J. P. Williams Company over many
years has been marked with shrewd fore-
sight and unusual acumen. The producers
dealing with this house have profited by
Mr. Carson's long experience and study
of naval stores conditions. With him as
president the future progress and pros-
perity of the concern are assured. Mr.
Williams will also continue to give to it
the benefit of his many years experience
and ripe judgment.
The Pensacola business of the J. P.
Williams Company will be taken over by a
new corporation formed for that purpose,
known as the Williams Naval Stores Com-
pany. Mr. T. A. Jennings, who has been
for many years connected with the house,
and is now second vice-president, will be
elected president of the new Florida com-
pany. Mr. Jennings is one of the most
popular men in the factorage line and
probably has as extensive an acquaintance
among producers as any one in the trade.
No better selection could be made to head
the new Florida company.
Under the reorganization a long and
prosperous life can be safely predicted for
the J. P. Williams Co. and the Williams
Naval Stores Co.
The project of a central bank based
upon the general outlines of the Bank of
France or the Imperial Bank of Germany,
has apparently been attracting more at-
tention of late than at any previous time
in recent years.
Mr. Wexler, vice-president of the Whit-
ney-Central National Bank of New Or-
leans, is openly in favor of a central bank,
and says that the New Orleans press,
taught by the strain of the cotton situa-
tion, is generally with him.
Those who favor a central bank point
to the recent crisis as the best evidence of
the aid which it could have afforded had
it been in operation. Their view is that
the national bank would have been able

to rediscount their paper at such an in-
stitution and obtain its notes to any
amount necessary to relieve the currency
It is considered somewhat significant in
some quarters that Mr. Bidgely, the on-
traler of the currency, has just declared
for a central bank of issue after having
in previous reports recommended only a
general credit currency for the existing
The utterances of Mr. Ridgely are not,
however, considered to commit the admin-
istration, since Treasurer Treat has a dif-
ferent plan which.he is advocating when.
ever he is invited to deliver a public ad-
dress on the subject.
It is so long sine a central bank exist-
ed or was even seriously discussed in the
United States, that there is much differ-
ence of opinion as to the oemsn ot the
organisation. Those who advocate it gen-
erally insist, however, that the secretary
of the treasury and the controller of the

The provision of the German bank char- for a guaranty fund raised by taxation

deal of favor-that after a certain fixed Ito be employed when necessary, to redeem
limit of circulation, additional issues which
are not covered dollar for dollar by gold,
should be taxed at the rate of 5 per cent.
Others, however, prefer the greater free-
dom of the French system, where the vol-
ume of note issues is practically under
the control of the bank, and where the
accumulation of a large reserve permits
the bank to serenely maintain a rate of
discount much lower than that of the
Bank of England or the Bank of Germany
while other countries are in the throes
of fnanial convulsion.
The project of combination among the
national banks through their clearing
houe committee, or otherwise, to guar-
antee a special circulation in case of
emergency, is embodied in several plans
which have been submitted to the secre-
tary of the treasury.
While the plans are declared by experts
to have some degree of merit, it is feared
that they are too complicated to receive
serious attention in congress.
So far as the plans require voluntary
action by the banks, this might be diffi-
cult to obtain; so far as they compel ac-
tion by law, it is felt by some that such
a policy -would be drastic, if not uncon-
stitutional in compelling the banks to
make a use of their assets which they
might not desire to make.
Moat of the plans presented at previous
sessions of Congress ha dealt with the
quetion of increasing the elasticity of the
circulation issued by local natioMl banks
by permitting issues on other security
thae United States bods. There is a
radial-difference of opinion, however, be-
tween two schools of thought as to the
nature of these additional issues.
the notes of failed banks.
It is the contention of Mr. Fowler and
others who favor this plan that a tax of
about one-twelfth of one per cent annual-
ly, upon the circulation, would meet all
losses, but in order to insure absolute
safety they propose that the tax shall be
very much larger than this.
The principle of the Fowler bill is in
harmony with- two other measures which
attracted considerable attention a year
ago-the bill of the special committee of
the New York Chamber of Commerce,
which was indorsed unanimously by the
chamber in November, 1906, and the plan
of the special committee of the American
Bankers' Association, which was indorsed
almost unanimously at their annual con-
vention of the association at Atlantic
City, in Seltember last.
The plan of the chamber of commerce.
committee proposed issues on the general
credit of the bank to the amount of 5 per
cent of capital under each of the rates of
taxation, 2, 3 and 4 per cent., and to the
amount of 10 per cent of capital under
each of the rates of 5 and 6 per cent.
This permitted total issues to the
amount of 35 per cent of capital, or about
$980,00,000, but it was contended that no
more than half of this taxed up to the
rate of 4 per cent could be kept in circu-
lation under ordinary conditions.
The plans of the bankers' association
provided for issues to the amount of 25
per cent of capital under a tax of 2/,
per cent., and 12% per cent under a tax
of 5 per cent.
The bankers' plan, therefore, permitted
larger issues upon an average lower rate
than the chamber of commerce plan.

TEN DOLLARS STARTS YOU
W E HAVE DECIDED TO PLACE ON SALE a Special Fall Com-
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 plates) in this combination, and their present selling prices follow:
Murray Hill Hihts, appro ed b b beautiful Highway
aveua paved, or from St. John drive, paved, near th
w million-dollar shops of the Seaboard Air Line RaB
way, and a subdivision that i all whit, and extremely
po- ar, pr= selling price
Phm Oret Park, near the corner of Myrtle avenue and
* isa road, in front of the Edward Waters College it
and adjacent to more nw ottages than any other section
of JadBmonvlle, prent selling pris
East Grand Park, approached by beautiful Kings road, a
magamiesat suburb, -class, clean, strictly white and
rapidly devlopiag, preMent Mlli prim
We will sell these combine-
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 $660,
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 gn-i-*sivg
you at least one corner out of the three lots. We issue a straight contract for deed. Our title
are absolutely perfect. We guarantee every lot high and dry.
PLACE 8AVINOG IN JACKSONVILLE DIRT.
Jacksonville, the gateway to Florida, is the most rapidly growing eity in all the lBoth,
perhaps in the country. Devastated by fire six years ago, it is today a city of over Afty thou-
sand people and growing at a rate that is phenomenal. It is a cosmopolitan city--ade up
of a fine citizenry from all sections of the world. It is one of the cleanest, halthit mast
beautiful cities of its size in America. It is a city of magnificent homes, churches, sehooa. 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 unpree-
dented opportunities for safe, sound, profitable real estate investments. It has ever 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 ae-
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
our reliability and financial standing, ask the banks.

The business of the Standard Oil Com-
pany, as is well known, does not require
the enormous surplus now carried, and
stockholders anticipate the cutting of a
very large melon in the event of a satis-
faetory adjustment of the litigation affect-
ing the corporation.
The following table, which shows the
net profts, dividends and surplus after
dividends, of the Standard Oil Company
from 1902 to 1907, inclusive, the profits
for 1907 being estimated, gives a good
idea of the Standard Oil Company's tre-
mendous earning power and the large sur-
plus available for distribution to stock-

plus accumulated over the last six years.

organized, to Dec. 31. 1901. Until 1902
the Standard Oil Comlpaiy apparently
made it a point to distribute io sharehold-
ers each year a very large Iercentage of
its net profits, but this policy was aban-
domed at the close of 1901.
