THE YEAR 1908.
THE INDUSTRIAL RECORD in this first issue of the
New Year forcibly calls attention to the excellent business
and industrial conditions prevailing in Jacksonville and in
Florida. A comparison with other sections of the country
offer the most striking guarantee that this State is too re-
sourceful and too independent in a business way to expe-
rienee any serious drawback to any branch of industry or
trade. On the other hand there is every confidence ex-
pressed by the business interests for the next twelve months.

The Record For 1908
For the year 1908 THE INDUSTRIAL RECORD is to take the lead in reflecting the industrial life of
the State and working for the advancement of every industry and trade. In order to devote
the most thorough effort in this work and to make it comprehensive and complete, we have se-
cured the services of Mr. J. O. LaFontisee, who is to devote his entire time and his best efforts
to enlarging the usefulness and general scope of this publication.
Every branch of trade is to be represented. Space will be devoted to the wholesale and
retail trade of Florida-manufacturing, building and in fact to everything identified with the
industrial life of the State. In order that this may best be done THE INDUSTRIAL RECORD re-
quests earnest co-operation of the business men, assuring them tha tthe greatest care is to be ex-
ercised to truthfully and with enterprise record important developments in every line.
As heretofore THE RECORD will devote careful attention to naval stores and lumber, working
for the advancement and the best interests of those industries with the same fearlessness and en-
terprise which has characterized our efforts in the past. Our work in other branches of trade
< and industry will in no way nor to any extent lessen the value of THE RECORD so far as naval
stores and lumber are concerned.

OUR FAST DECREASING TIMBER
We have made a beginning in forest
preservation, but .. only a beginning
. The country is unquestionably on
the verge of a timber famine. . The
only trouble with the movement for the
preservation of our forests is that it has
not gone nearly far enough, and was not
begun soon enough. It is a most fortu-
nate thing, however, that we began it
when we did. We should acquire in the
Appalachian and White Mountain regions
all the forest lands that it is possible to
acquire for the use of the Nation. These
lands, because the form a national asset,
are as emphatically national as the rivers
which they feed, and which flow through
so many States before they reach the
ocean.-Theodore Roosevelt, President.
Under present policies of use and waste,
the timber supply of the United States
will last probably from twenty to thirty-
When the forests fail, the lumber bus-
iness, now the fourth greatest industry in
the country, will, of course, disappear.
Suffering among all building industries
will immediately follow; mining will be-
come greatly more expensive; then nat-
urally the price of coal, iron, and all other
minerals will rise; by this the railroads
will be directly affected and the cost of
transportation and waterpower for light-
ing, manufacturing and transportation will
immediately increase. All goods made
from products of the mines will increase
in price, which will hamper, not only agri-
S- culture, but the cost of production gen-
erally. In fine, when the forests fail,
every man, woman and child in the United
States will feel the pinch. And through
misuse the forests are failing rapidly.-
Gifford Pinehot, Forester.
In six years the Government has re-
claimed 250,000 acres, upon which are now
living 20,000 people, representing 4,000
families. It is a reasonable estimate that,
in another decade, 2,000,000 more acres
may be reclaimed, upon which 250,000
more human beings may maintain them-
selves in reasonable comfort.
The water for this work comes chiefly
from streams rising in mountains. To
maintain the supply of this water, it is
essential that forests be maintained upon
these mountains. To this end, National
Forests are indispensable.-F. H. Newell,
U. S. Reclamation Service.
I have known the Connecticut for over
thirty-six years. It drains an area of
over four thousand square miles. Until re-
cently the wooded hills kept the flow of
the river even Now, in the spring, we
have floods, while in the summer the wa-
ter sometimes will not run our mills.-
Theophilus.Parsons, New England Manu-
Where streams are subject to severe
droughts or great floods, commercial de-
velopment is practically impossible. Na-
ture has provided for the uniformity of
fow by covering the watersheds at the
headwaters of these streams with forests.
When these forests are cut off, conditions
are entirely changed, and great freshets

Great Confidence Expressed By the
Business Men of Jacksonville.

vancement made in every line during the
There is general prosperity in Florida.
Nothing can best illustrate this fact than
the manner in which the State has with-

The wonderful and substantial resources
of the State have prevented failures and
kept business practically undisturbed.
Far from injuring Florida, the financial
stringency in other States has given to
the business interests of this State re-
newed confidence and greater faith for the
On New Year's day the Jacksonville
Metropolis published a carefully prepared
article by Mr. J. O. LaFontisee, of the
Record, on the prospects for the year 1908,
bringing to bear opinions of the leading
business men of Jacksonville on present
conditions and what is offered for the fu-
ture. The article follows:
The general prosperity of Jacksonville
is best indicated by the confidence ex-
pressed by bankers, merchants and others
who are closely identified with her com-
The Metropolis herewith presents opin-
ions from the leading business men of
Jacksonville, which show that the great-
est element in business, trade and active
business life guarantee the best prospects
for the future of Jacksonville. Confi-
dence is the great factor in not only hold-
ing up trade but in offering an assurance
of future growth of any city, town or
That Jacksonville has the confidence
of not only her citizens, but the business
world in general, is illustrated by condi-
tions which at present prevail, and which
offer the greatest assurance that Jackson-
ville is to grow and prosper during the
No better indication could be offered
for the future growth and development
of Jacksonville for the new year than the
expression of the business men of Jack-
sonville, representing every line of trade,
and which are presented herewith.
In order to secure a careful prediction
for Jacksonville's future for the new year
The Metropolis has interviewed promi-
nent business men in every branch to se-
cure opinions from those whose business
enterprises bring them in contact with
other parts of the country.
The best indication for the future of
any city is offered by the confidence mani-
fested by her own business men. A re-
markable feature of Jacksonville's growth
during the years following the great fire
of 1901 is due in large part, if not entire-
ly, to the efforts of the people of Jackson-
ville alone. When the great fire swept
over the greater part of the business and
resident section of the city the people of
Jacksonville, appreciating the fact that
their city was a logical distributing point
for a great State, and knowing and ap-
preciating the value of their city's loca-
tion, banded together with a determina-
tion to recover what had been lost as a
result of this great catastrophe. That
these efforts have met with success is ful-
ly demonstrated today, and when the
panic, brought about by unnatural con-
ditions in New York, swept over the en-
tire United States, paralyzing business,
wrecking banks and business enterprises,
Jacksonville stood alone among the cities
of the South and the United States unaf-
fected and undisturbed.
No Subterfuge for Currency.
Of all the cities in the South Jackson-
ville was the only one where subterfuge
for currency was not necessary. The
Jacksonville Clearing House issued no
certificates, for it was not necessary to
do so. No failures have been reported in
Jacksonville because of the panic of the
Imst three months. Real estate values
have not only held their own, but the
great demand for houses and homes has
Real Estate Values Not Decreased.
Real estate values and the demand for
real estate is perhaps the best basis for
figuring or predicting the future of any
town or city. Real estate agents and
those who make a business of renting
homes or rooms are frank in making the
statement that there is a greater demand
for homes in Jacksonville than ever exist-
ed in the past.
While the greatest confidence is ex-
pressed by those dealing in real estate for
the future of Jacksonville, there are oth-
ers who are even more pronounced in
their views when giving expressions for
the future of the city.
The greatest weight should be attached
to the statements of such men as Captain
C. E. Garner, Judge W. B. Owen, Dr. H.
Robinson, L Furchgott, J. E. Cohen, E. A.
Champlain and others.
City Has Been Growing.
One of the best indications for the new
year is offered by a careful study of the
developments in Jacksonville for 1907.
Not only has the population in Jackson-
ville increased during the past year, but
the active boundaries of the city have
been spread to an extent surprising even
to the real estate dealers. The statement
of Postmaster Gerow best illustrates this
The Postofice Record.
The business of the Jacksonville post-
office has been growing rapidly. I find
that the growth of business and the neces-
sity for the employment of a larger force
of clerks and carriers is due to the re-
markaatle growth of the city in the sub-
urban sections. I can name one section
of the city alone which has doubled in
population. I have in view when I make
this statement one suburb which has ad-
ded one hundred houses to the list of
those where carriers have to call when on
their daily rounds. So far as the indica-
tions furnished by this office are con-
cerned, the holiday trade this year was
far beyond that of last year. We have
seven more clerks now than we had for
the same time last year. and five more
carriers. As an evidence of the growth of
the business, I want to call your attention
to the money-order business this year, as
compared with last. Taking the day pre-
ceding Christmas as a basis of compari-
son of the business for the year, I have a
report before me which shows that for the
day corresponding with the same date
last year there were money-orders to the
extent of $1,680. as against $611 for last
year. But this is not the only evidence
which this office can offer to prove the
growth and development of Jacksonville.
More People Here.
"I find that the general delivery has 50
per cent. more callers now than it had at
the same time last year, indicating that
there are a great many more strangers in
the State now than there were at the
same time in 1907. There has been a
gradual increase in the business of this
office, and I am gratified to state that it
has not been due to any undue conditions,
but to the general and substantial growth
of the city. One of the best indications
for the city, so far as this office is, con-
cerned, is found in the fact that people
are buying or renting homes in those sec-
tions which were formerly regarded sa
being far outside Jacksonville. I believe
that the future of Jacksonville is bright.
I know that it is."
What Bankers Say.
One of the best and most forcible claims
made for the future prosperity and growth
of Jacksonville was made by the bankers.
All of them were of one opinion-the
crisis had not affected Jacksonville,
and the confidence of the business
men of the city was such as to prevent
any effect upon business of the place.
Captain C. E. Garner, president of the
Florida National Bank and president of
the Jacksonville Board of Trade, ex-
pressed himself freely when discussing the
future of Jacksonville. He said:
"There never was a better illustration
of Jacksonville's financial strength than
that which has been furnished by the de-
velopments of the past six weeks. We
stand alone in one respct-we have never
had occasion to issue clearing house cer-
tifleites. There appears to be a general
confidence in the business ability of Jack-
sonville to withstand all minor shocks.
We have been through the mill, and we
have come out with that independence
which puzzled the financial world. Jack-
sonville's financial condition is good; her
business men have confidence in her fu-
Bradstreet Sees Bright future.
To add force to the statement made by
Mr. Gerow are the expressions of Mr. B.
J. Earle, representative in Jacksonville
for Bradstreet. Every business man ap-
preciates the value of any information,
rating or opinion from Bradstreet, or that
from any other great commercial agency.
Mr. Earle has been a resident of Florida
for many years, being identified with
Florida, and actively so, since he became a
resident of this State. No man is better
qualified to speak for Florida in this con-
nection than is Mr. Earle, and he says:
No Failures to Record.
"I find that conditions here in Jackson-
ville at this time are good. We have had
no failures to record; no depreciation of
values to note. The general outlook for
Florida is good; for Jacksonville, it is
excellent.' Many people are coming to the
State this year seeking homes, and I fnd,
through my investigations, a confidence
and general good feeling for Jacksonville
in a business way. Jacksonville is the
only city in the South where it was un-
necessary to provide a subterfuge for cur-
rency. There Is perhaps no better way
to judge the future prospects of any city
than by a study of her real estate values.
So far as Jacksonville is concerned, real
estate values have remained intact; and in
fact there are more demands today for
homes than can be supplied. I fnd that
those who have endeavored to take advan-
tage of prevailing conditions, seeking to
buy property at a low rate, have failed
of their purpose in Jacksonville. Roa es-
tate has not declined In value in Jackso-

Judge W. B. Owen, president of the
Jacksonville Development Company and
vice-president of the Commercial Bank,
"I believe that the beginning of the
new year will see better and brighter
prospects not only for Jacksonville, but
for the country at large. I predicate this
view on the theory that those who have
been using savings banks as a means of
investment and for hoarding wealth have
seen the advantage of investments in
real estate. I believe that one of the
most wholesome lessons taught by the
recent financial panic in the North is that
investments in real estate are not only
safer but surer of returns than are depos-
its in safety vaults and savings banks. I
have the great profits made in real estate
investments in Jacksonville during the
past few years in mind when expressing
How Real Estate Wn Talk
There is the greatest confidence ex-
pressed by the real estate men of Jack-
sonville and the State of Florida. Real
estate men of Jacksonville have been
branching out, and have become familiar
with the entire State, from a business
standpoint as well as from a business ne-
There is not a real estate man in Jack-
sonville today who will not say that while
sales are few at this time values have not
depredated. As the agent for Bradstreet
said, "there may be extreme ases where
sales have been made to meet urgent de-
mands," but against this is the active and
unsupplied demand for homes and for
rental property. The real estate agents
emphasize what the postmaster has to
say in reference to the new people who
are seeking homes in Jacksonville. The
inquiries are great. Mr. Telfair Stockton,
one of the best known and oldest dealers
in real estate is Jacksonville, said:
Mr. Telfair stctem.
"Real estate values are not decreasing.
On the other hand, I am inclined to any
that they are advancing. In the first
place, property in Jacksonville is in strong
hands. There have been no forced sales
nor sacrifices. We have more buildings
under course of construction than any
city in the South, and there is a more ae-
tive demand for homes than there was a
year ago. The very best indication, so far
as our line of bsinaes is concerned, is
offered by the fact that suburban proper-
ty has not only held up well, but that
values for this character of property is

closely and prominently connected with
real estate in Jacksonville for the pat
five years, and who has had an active part
in Jacksonville's development, said:

there are today. I believe that hard times

A Sound Business
To the Editor of The Industrial Record,
City, Dear Sir:-The business prospects
for the coming year, from the merchants'
viewpoint, in my opinion, are very firm and
bright. The panicky condition that we
have just passed through is due greatly
to speculation. I have resided in Florida
for the past twenty years, and this is the
second flurry we have passed through dur-
ing that period. I contend that the busi-
ness of Florida is in no wise concerned in
the present condition that exists in New
York and other stock speculative points
throughout the country. The business
conditions of our State are absolutely
sound, and if all our business people will
fight shy of speculation in every form
they need have no fear of the future.
The very best way for a community to
size up their condition is through their
banking institutions. I venture to assert,
without fear of contradiction, that the
banks of the city of Jacksonville are in as
ane condition as it would be possible to
have a bank no matter how good the gen-
ing that period will be of value. The
operators and factors are doing a good
work along this line and there is every
reason to believe that the efforts in this
direction will have an excellent effect on
the trade in general.
CONDITIONS IN THE LUMBER TRADE.
Reports from every section of the yellow
pine belt are to the effect that a great
many sawmills have shut down for a
time at least, and some mills report that
they have shut down for an indefinite
Some of the larger mills which an-
nounced several months ago that they
would not be effected so far as their out-
put is concerned, because of the lact of
orders and general adverse conditions in
the lumber trade, are today preparing to
shut down and to remain shut down un-
til there is an improvement.
While there is little offered for the fu-
ture by a study of present conditions, the
sawmill men are hopeful. They see no
necessity or cause for the present condi-
tion of affairs and are looking forward to
a brighter future. Beneath the surface
there are indications that there is to be a
eral condition might be. During all their greater demand for lumber in the next
period of service to the people they have few months than there is at the present
been faithful to their trust, and at no
time have they offered curious money to
their depositors. To this one thing alone
is due the present good business conditions
that exist in our community, and I, for
one, think that we cannot praise too high-
ly the good, common business sense dis-
played by our bankers.
JNO. A. CUNNINGHAM.
WHAT THE FUTURE HAS IN STORE.
The State of Florida has reason to con-
gratulate itself on the bright indications
for the future. There is nothing to de-
tract from the general outlook for a most
successful business year. True. conditions
in themselves at this time may not be as
satisfactory as we would like to have
them, but the fact that the business in-
terests of the State have withstood the
present financial stringency better than
they have in any other section of the
United States, has renewed the confidence
of the business men and instilled new life
into nearly every branch of trade.
There have been no failures to record
and the general development of the State
is going merrily on. The wonderful re-
sources of Florida and the development of
the past year offers the greatest assurance
that 1908 will see continued strides in
business and general development.
The future for Florida is really bright.
GETTING THINGS STRAIGHT.
Advices to the Industrial Record from
operators show conclusively that all of
them are getting down to "hard pan."
They are taking just the proper method
at this time to bring their business to as
favorable a standpoint as present condi-
tions will permit.
Efforts are being made to reduce ex-
penses, reduce the output and to bring
about as nearly as possible a reasonable
comparison between labor conditions and
the general state of the industry.
The action of the executive committee
of the Turpentine Operators' Association
has had a good effect in helping to hasten
action along this line. When the price
of naval stores advances the lesson taught
by the past five years' experience with
labor and with other adverse features,
which have characterized the industry dur-
time. While inquiries are slow now, there
are some reasons offered by conditions in
railroad construction and general prevail-
ing conditions in the North to lead to the
belief that in a few weeks the demand
for lumber will be greatly increased.
In the meantime there is a prevailing
opinion that the shutting down of many
of the mills will have a tendency to hasten
better conditions in the lumber trade.
To lend force to the argument that
there are better times ahead is the fact
that the values so far as timber proposi-
tions are concerned have not decreased.
The same values are being asked today
as several months ago and there have
been few sacrifices. Owners of timber
lands are confident that there is a great
demand for property of this class at this
time or that there will be in the near
Real estate men declare that there is
still a demand for timber property and
that there is every indication that sales
are to be good in the very near future.
One of the largest manufacturers of
lumber in this State, said to a represen-
tative of the Industrial Record:
"It is unfair to the trade, to the own-
ers of timber lands and in fact to every
branch of trade in this or any other State
in the yellow pine belt to even attempt to
figure future conditions by a study or
reference to present values and to present
demand for timber propositions. The fact
is we are just emerging from a financial
panic. During the past few weeks there
has existed a state of affairs in the
North which has proved disastrous, if I
can use the term, to every department of
construction. When the railroads an-
nounced that they had withdrew a great
many of their projects and curtailed the
work of extension in every line,,it might
have been expected that values of lumber
would decline. But with the advent of
the new year and a return of confidence, I
see only good prospects ahead."
One of the largest estate dealers of
Florida, and one who has been closely
identified with timber propositions for the
past ten years offers this statement
through the columns of the Industrial

been relegated to the past. The develop-
ments of the past few months has had a
tendency to bring about even a more sta-
ble condition of affairs than those which
existed some time ago. The prevailing
stumpage price today is $2 per thousand.
When this present financial depression has
passed, and when the people have time to
stop and think and to appreciate the fact
that the great devastation of the forests
of the country would naturally tead to
create a demand for timber land, prices
will go bounding up. I believe that the
price which will be paid three years from
today for stumpage will be at least $

increase in capital invested makes up the

Report of the Jacksonville Clearing
The general record for the year 1907, so
far as general growth and progress for
Jacksonville is concerned is good. There
is much from a study of figures to indi-
eate that not only the city but the entire
State is in excellent condition and there
are also promises for the year 198.
The report of the Jacksonville Clearing

offered. There has been a general and
steady increase for several years and for

Governor Broward Issues a Procla-
mation For Immigration
There are indications which point for a
more general campaign in this state for
immigration. The agitation of this ques-
tion by the Industrial Record and other
papers of the State for the past year
bids fair to result in some permanent and
adequate plan for a general and compre-
hensive effort to bring settlers to Florida.
Governor Broward has just issued a proc-
lamation, calling for an immigration con-
vention in Tampa on February 12. The
proclamation sets forth the necessity for
action along this line and there are rea-
sons for the belief that this convention
will be of great value to Florida. The
"Whereas, The question of immigration
is of vital interest to the South, where
millions of fertile acres are ready to give
forth abundant harvests to thrifty toilers
from less favored lands, offering to such
a real 'ILnd of Promise,' the rich bless-
ings of which they and their loved ones
may enjoy during their span of life, and
then hand down as a legacy to their chil-
"Whereas, The legislatures of several of
our Southern States, realizing the press-
iag need of bringing into their borders im-
migrants of a desirable class, in order that
the rich agricultural, mineral, industrial
and other resources of our incomparable
land may be developed to their bountiful
capacity, have enacted laws and appro-
priated money for the purpose of aiding
and promoting immigration; and,
"Whereas, The need of the better class
of immigration is by no means confined
to agricultural, mineral and other rural
loalities, but is equally great in our fast-
growing cities and towns, where the call
for skilled and brawny artisans is ever
on the increase and in many instances un-
"Whereas, The need of skilled workmen
to lend assistance in our grand era of up-
building is no less recognized by labor
than by capital, both of which are justly
opposed to the importation of immigrants
of such character that they could never
measure up to the standard of true
"Therefore, I, Napoleon B. Broward, gov-
ernor of the State of Florida, do hereby
call upon the governors of all the South-
ern States to attend in person and ap-
point ten delegates from each State to
attend a convention to be held in the city
of Tampa, in the State of Florida, on
Wednesday, the 12th day of February,
1908, for the purpose of discussing immi-
gration in its every important detail. I
also urge upon the governors of all the
Southern States that they issue an in-
vitation to the various commercial and
labor organizations of their several States,
requesting each of them to send to said
convention three delegates, with author-
ity to participate in the deliberations,
"I also cordially invite and urgently re-
quest the immigration commission ap-
pointed by the President of the United
States to investigate the subject of immi-
gration in foreign lands, to be present at
said convention, to relate their experiences,
give their conclusions, and make such rec-
ommendations as their investigations war-

INSPECTED EXTENSION OF EAST
Mr. J. R. Parrott, vice president and
general manager of the Florida East Coast
railway, returned yesterday in a private
train from a trip dawn the state, where
he inspected the new extension to Key
West. Mr. Parrott was accompanied by
Mr. Flagler and others, and the party
went as far down as Knights Key, the
present terminus of the road.
It is very likely that the Florida East
Coast railway will commence the opera-
tion of trains on the new extension to
Knights Key sometime during the present
month. From Knights Key a daily boat
service will be operated to Key West, and
three boats will ply between Knights Key
sad Havana each week.

PLACE 8AVING8 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. Oreat
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 ao-
tivities. Real estate values in the city alone increased over a million last year-the suburbs
increased in a greater proportion.

pany, said: "Our trade has been good.
The prospects for Jacksonville were never
better than they are today."
F. P. Conroy.
"Jacksonville is one city in the United
F-tates which has not been seriously af-
fected by this money stringency. There
have been no failures, and I find that so
far as Smith. Richardson & Conroy is con-
cerned trade is good. I regard the pros-
pects of any city with the record Jack-
sonville has for outliving and conquering
adversities as good at any old time, and
I believe that 1908 has good things in
store for this city. Wait and see."
W. B. Myers, Capitalist.
Mr. W. B. Myers, who has been identi-
fied with a number of the larger business
enterprises of the place for a number of
years, and who has a great deal of prop-
erty here, said:
"There is nothing but the most favor-
able indications for the new year. If
Jacksonville was not on a substantial
basis, and if what has been said about
wild cat real estate schemes were half
true, the business interests of the city
would be tottering now. But, far from it,
real estate is held at the same values as
it was a few months ago, and is worth
really more. The way Jacksonville has
withstood this panic is the best indica-
tion for the future."
Mr. R. V. Coington.
"I believe that there will be a cleaning
out of visionary and wildcat schemes in
Jacksonville, but at the same time I am
frank to state that the outlook is bright."
"Never in the history of Jacksonville
have the conditions justified such an opti-
mistic view as they do today. Jackson-
ville has shown during the past few weeks
that she is so resourceful within herself
as to make the possibility of a business
panic here out of the question. We have
not suffered. On the other hand, if we
stop to consider the experiences of other
cities and then take Jacksonville into
consideration, we will find that we are
ahead of any city in the United States,
so far as business and resources are con-
cerned. Jacksonville is all right, and you
can tell them that I said so."
