No Cause for Excitement,
The sudden spurt in the turpentine mar-
ket ought not to create excitement among
operators to the extent of deterring them
in their efforts to regulate labor which are
now so well under way. Operators should
live up to their New Year's resolution to
curtail their output, place the price of box
cutting down to where the executive com-
mittee of the T. O. A. advised and in every
way provide against a return to past con-
ditions. Too great an advantage has been
S to lose. The Industrial Record appeals
to operators to keep up the good work.

What is Transpiring in Naval Stores
OPERATORS OUGHT TO STUDY THE
PRESENT MARKET CONDITIONS.
The lesson of the past few years ap-
pears to have been well impressed upon
uavni stores operators throughout the na-
val stores belt.
The best indication of this is found in
the general feeling of saupicion which has
marked the effort to account for the sud-
den and sensational rise in the price of
spirits within the past few days.
Operators have studied the situation
since the downward trend of prices began.
It is during periods of adversity that the
greatest care is always taken to ascertain
"aues and effect." In the case of naval
stores the producers have been "up against
it" for the past few months. They have
not only seen a trust adopt and maintain
the most unscrupulous methods, but they
have been taught with regret that there
were some of the factorage firms who pur-
ported to be the friends of the producer
who have joined the forces with the ene-
my and assisted in building up the great-
et bulwark of opposition which ever eon-
fronted the producers.
Now that there has been a marked ad-
vance the operator should stop and think.
"A burned child dreads the fire." The
operators' fingers have been scorched in
the past and they are now inclined to
eepas far away from the flame as can be.
The are many reasons being assigned
fir the sadden advance in the price of
turpentine. Taking all conditions into con-
sideration, it is plain to see that it is only
following the adopted policy of manipu-
lation by the export company which has
had and which has exercised a monopo-
litie laim on the trade from the start
of the producing season up to now.
Readers of the Record will bear in mind
that a few weeks ago this paper inaugu-
rated a strenuous fight for the operator
as against the combination which was
beating down the price of spirits at will.
Now that an advance has occurred opera-
tors are inclined to take a more opti-
mistic view of the situation. But there
should be a careful study made of pres-
eat conditions. It has been claimed that
certain factorage firms have been assist-
ing in the general and successful effort on
the part of the combine to influence prices.
Now that there is a contemplated change
in the management of one of the largest
factorage firms there are good grounds for
the belief that this is behind the move-
ment to advance the price of turpentine.
There appears to be little doubt as to
this. Operators ought to take this phase
ao the situation into serious consideration.
If a contemplated change can affect the
market to this extent the question nat-
urally arises as to what the real effect will
be when the contemplated change is made.
But there ought not to be a withdrawal
from the policy to curtail the output and
to better regulate labor. The Record be-
lieves that there will be a continuance of
the policy already adopted and that there
will be no change wrought by this sudden
advance in the price of turpentine.
Operators have been exercising the
geatest judgment during the past few
d:ys. Reports indicate that all and not
ly a few have been falling into line in
the general plan to decrease the output
and to decrease the expense of labor. The
same efforts ought to be continued.
Don't be carried away by the present
advance in the market. Wait and see
what it means.
In the meantime watch the Record.
We will keep you advised.

HIeadquarters for Turpentine Operators
F. BAITOW STUBBS,
The Jacksonville Metropolis of Friday
has the following timely reference to the
"Spirits of turpentine has advanced 10
cents a gallon or $5 a barrel in the past
week. This advance is of great interest
to Jacksonville and Florida generally, as
Florida produces more naval stores than
all of the other States in the yellow pine
Jacksonville is the trading center of
the naval stores industry and her busi-
ness interests, therefore, are keenly alive
to every feature of market conditions.
For several months spirits has been
selling for less than the actual cost of
production, the price within recent weeks
reaching the low-water mark of 40 cents.
This advance, therefore, to a price more
adequate with the actual cost of produc-
tion comes, of course, as a welcome
change. At the same time it must be re-
1. D. CRAWFORD,
membered that fully 95 per cent of this
year's crop has already been marketed at
the below-cost prices, and should the
present market be sustained, not more
than 5 per cent of the gross product could
at this late hour receive the benefit.
"There has been considerable specula-
tion as to reasons bringing about this per-
ceptible advance in the past week. It is
well known that the largest buyers of na-
val stores, known as the export combine,
have during the entire season made the
markets, and it has been claimed, how
justly the Metropolis does not know, that
this combine has indirectly at least been
aided by some of the large factorage
houses. It is now well known too, that a
change of management is seriously contem-
plated by the stockholders of one of the
large factorage houses, at the meeting in
Jacksonville next week, and there is no
doubt a feeling that more satisfactory
conditions will generally prevail if these
contemplated changes are made. When
this is taken into consideration with the
fact that spirits on the Jacksonville mar-
ket sold one day this week for a greater
price than in the Savannah market the
same day, it is not difficult to see that
the activity of smaller buyers, possibly
anticipating some changes in manage-
ments, is having its effect. It is unfortu-
nate that this advance in spirits could not
have been during the marketing season.
Whatever the conditions are that are ad-
vancing the price of turpentine, the naval
stores operators of Florida alone would
be millions of dollars better off had these
conditions prevailed six months ago.
"The Metropolis hopes that the advance
may continue until the product can be
marketed at a fair profit to the producers
and that the general affairs of the naval
stores industry may be so adjusted that
the operators shall get the benefit of good
prices in a season when it means some-
thing to them."
TIMES-UNION ON MARXK CONDI-
The Florida Times-Union, in referring to
the present market conditions, appears
to have an excellent idea of what the
change means for Florida. The Times-
Union says this morning:
"Of great advantage to Florida is the
recent marked advance in the price of na-
"During the past ten days, the price of
spirits of turpentine has advanced from
40 to 51 cents, and there have been pri-
vate sales above the 51 cent mark.
"The effect upon Florida created by this
advance will be good, but had the advance
occurred before 95 per cent of the product
was in the hands of the exporter and out
of the hands of the producer the benefit
to accrue would have been much greater,
as a matter of corse. For several months
the price of spirits has been suoh as to
force the operator to sell at a low. Now
that the advance has come, the operator,
though profiting to an extent, does not
join in the general scope of the advantage
gained by the raise in prices.
"Florida is the greatest producer of na-
val stores, and Jacksonville is the logical,
if not the active center for naval stores
trading. Had this advance occurred sev-
eral months ago the advantage to accrue
to Florida would have been much greater
than it is, coming at this late day.
Cause of Advuace.
"There has been several attempts made
to account for this sudden and active ad-
vance in the price of spirits. It is gen-
erally understood and has been practically
known that the largest buyers of naval
stores for the export and domestic trade
have been forcing the price of turpentine
down. There has been a gradual decrease
in the price. The downward trend has
ben so gradual and so systematic as to
justify the claim that prices which have
prevailed for the past few months have
been due to manipulation.
"It has been claimed that the exporting
firm or combine which has been instru-
mental in making this advance has been
aided by some of the large factorage firms.
Now that a change in the management of
one of the largest factorage frms is con-
templated and that the stockholders of
that same firm are to meet in this city
next week, there are reasons which almost
justify the claim that the sudden raise
in prices is due to this contemplated
change. This view is predicated on the
VVHITE OAK SPIRITS BARRELS
Guaranteed to conform to specifications Savannah and Jacksonville Board of Trade.
Write to Columbus Barrel Mf. Co., Columbus, Ga., or to HENRY ELSON, Florida Mgr., Jacksomvmlle, la.
established theory that if the eontem-
plated changes are made conditions will
be greatly improved for the operator and
factor and will justify a better price for
naval stores. The fact that spirits have
sold in Jacksonville one day this week
for 1 cent higher than the market price
in Savannah, and that there were private
sales in excess of the Jacksonville figures,
gives weight to the claim that the con-
templated change is really responsible for
the advance, and the apparently steady
tone of the market.
"Taking all outward conditions into
consideration, it is not difficult to see that
the activity of the smaller buyers, antici-
pating a change of management for a fac-
torage firm which has been prominently
connected with the industry, is having its
effbet, and that the sudden and active
advance may be assigned solely to this
Cautieo Is Advised.
"Factors and operators appreciate the
fact that the advance in the price of
spirits will prove of advantage even now,
but that advantage is nothing when eoom-
pared with the effects which would have
been brought had this advance come ear-
"Factors here are inclined now to ad-
vise caution on the part of the operator.
A good start appears to have been made
during the past few weeks in reducing the
box cut and regulating labor. There ought
to be no deviating from the New Years'
resolutions made by the operators. This
sudden advance ought not to influence a
greater box cut than what was contem-
plated when spirits were selling at 40
"The fact that only 5 per cent of the
output is now in the hands of the opera-
tor ought to be taken into serious consid-
eration. There are reasons for this sud-
den advance. That advance was not made
in the interest of the operator."
CONSOLIDATED COMPANY TO MEET
IN BOARD OF TRADL AUDI-
The most interesting development prom-
ised in naval stores circles for the coming
week is the meeting of the stockholders
of the Consolidated Naval Stores Com-
pany. There are a great many stockhold-
ers of thi company who are coming from
all parts of the naval stores belt and it
is believed that the board of trade audi-
torium will have to be used in order to
furnish adequate room.
The meeting is to take place on Wed-
nesday afternoon at 3 o'clock and the in-
dications are that it is to be largely at-
Mr. F. J. OHara looks upon the present
status of the naval stores industry with
a brighter field glass than those who are
out of the industry are inclined to employ.
Mr. O'Hara is one of the largest and one
of the best posted men in the naval stores
industry. He has large holdings, is care-
ful in his operations and knows. He says:
"There is no reason for an ultra pessi-
mistic view of the industry just at this
time. I predicate this statement on the
well established theory that operators are
going to better regulate their affairs. We
ought to take everything into considera-
tion. There is labor and other conditions
to account for when referring to the pros-
pects for the future. In the first place
the low price of turpentine and lumber has
placed us in a position to dictate to labor
instead of labor dictating to us. In the
pust three or four years there has been
more money squandered on labor, wages,
recruiting, tips, regular hold-ups, etc., than
was made on the high prices which our
product brought. in a few words, the
operators 'went mad.' You and I know of
eases where operators dived into the in-
dustry without experience and with an
necessary expense and erratic judgment

which would have put the novice on the
New York stock market to shame. They
have learned their lesson. In fact, all of
us have. I, myself, have gone into it too
heavily, so far as paying labor is concern-
ed, though I claim that I, like others, was
forced to do so.
"But now there is a change. It is not
eOly on the way, but it is here. To tell
the plain truth, I have reduced my labor
bill on my three places about fifty per
cent and will have better and more quali-
led labor this year than I had last. Tak-
ing this as a basis upon which to figure
I ave no hesitancy in making the state-
ment that I will make more money on
turpentine at 40 cents than I have when
the price figured about the oa.
"Conditions are to be better next year.
We are getting down on the ground floor
just as fast as the elevator can carry us
down from a visionary loft. When all of
us have alighted with a dull thud, had
time to recover from the jar and look at
the other fellow and study our state of
affair, we will then branch out on a much
better basis and be prepared to conduct
our business without interference from
every floating negro who may come along.
"As to box cutting I find that there are
few who are cutting more boxes than they
have to in order to protect the leases
which they have on time. This is what
I am doing and the price for box cutting
is not as high as it was last year, by a
There have been others who have been
viewing the conditions in about the same
manner. The Industrial Record finds
that the factorage houses have been the
great power in bringing about a better
feeling and a better state of affairs.
Care and good judgment prevails at the
beginning of the new year and there are
indications which point to the fact that
the naval stores industry will be on its
feet again in the near future. By the
middle of the present year the operator;
will have established themselves on a
surer and firmer foundation and will have
the knowledge of the past to restrain
them from careless and reckless opera-
WITH THE MANUFACTURERS OF
Conditions in the lumber market have
not improved. There have been no ad-
vances, nor transactions to indicate an im-
provement and the prediction is confident-
ly made that unless prices advance there
will hardly be a mill in operation within
the next sixty days.
Thile this may be an exaggerated view
to take of the present conditions in the
lumber trade, it is, however, borne out to
an extent at least by the history of the
past six months.
There is a feeling on the part of the
manufacturers that their standing timber
is to them a great deal more valuable than
the finished product under the present
prices. Lumber is cut to order, and while
inquiries for lumber at present prices is
nominal, the manufacturers claim that to
cut at prevailing prices is to entail a loss.
They prefer to close down and stand the
expense of keeping up their stock, paying
interest and taxes on their holdings and
other incidentals, rather than to continue
at the present rate of prices. The pres-
ent prices are not justified by the supply
nor demand for lumber, but are regarded
as due entirely to the unsettled state of
affairs and the result of careless specula-
tion in railroad stocks and securities for
the past two years.
There is great hope for the future, and
influenced by this the mill men are in-
clined to hold.
Some time ago there was a strong prob-
ability that the larger mills would not be
affected. But today it appears that there
will be a general shutting down of mills.
If this is done there are reasons to believe
that the prices will greatly improve.
There has not been a falling off to any
extent in the demand for the finished
lumber, but prices are ruling below what
they ought to be and there is a great
supply on hand.
Lumber cannot be stored conveniently
and even if it could be it might be hard
to find customers for what was on hand,
because sizes and lengths might not cor-
respond with what was demanded for the
trade when it again became active.
The lumber yards in this city are not
much overstocked, but this is due to the
fact that orders now are readily and
A FW PIETI=ENT AND APPROPRI-
ATE SUGGESTIONS AS TO
The proclamation of Governor Browar'l,
calling an immigration convention for
February 12th at Tampa, has again forci-
bly brought this important question to the
minds of the people of the State.
A year or two ago, there was a general
and comprehensive opinion among those
who employed labor, or those who were
prominently identified with the progress of
the State, that an effort should be made
to secure a desirable class of people from
Europe. But there has been an abate-
ment of this feeling. Now the general
theory is that Florida's advantages give
her a claim upon those who live in the
north and west and who are seeking tor
homes and who are ready to take an ac-
tive part in the development of their sec-
tions, identifying themselves with the
practical, industrial and everyday life of
any part of the State where they may
In his proclamation the Governor ap-
pears to have studied this feature and to
have come to the same conclusion. He has
had abundant opportunities to do so. Dur-
ing the past year he has visited many
States and spent much time in the very
centers from which Florida ought to draw
people. He dwells uoon the advantages
of Florida in a practical and substantial
way, calling attention to the advantage
of securing a class of people who will oc-
cupy the agricultural lands of the State.
Here is a great demand for new settlers
in Florida. There are thousands of acres
of good land which can be made to yield
a great profit.
In the States of Michigan, Minnesota,
Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, -Illinois, and in
fact throughout the Middle West there are
thousands who are inclined to come this
way if they were assured that they could
be successful in building up homes here
and successfully identifying themselves
with Florida's industrial and business life.
An effort to present the claims of Florida
in this respect will be of the greatest ad-
vantage to the entire State.
Experiences with foreign immigrants
has not been good. True there have been
many who have come to the United States
and joined in her general development, but
as a rule it is hard to select the proper
class. The same efforts and the same ex-
penditure of funds in the Middle West
and even in the East will have greater
and better results.
There is one suggestion which The In-
dustrial Record would make to those who
are to represent Florida at this conven-
I. Insist upon a campaign of advertis-
ing and promotion through the Middle
2. Provide adequate facilities for taking
charge and advising homeseekers where to
locate when they arrive.
3. Be careful not to misrepresent ad-
vantages or conditions. Insist that it re-
quires work and diligent effort in Florida
to succeed as it does in any other section
of the country. Do not claim more than
what can be substantiated.
If these three principles are adhered to
much can be accomplished.

Operators have their own opinions as
to the cause of the sudden spurt in the

A correspondent in this issue of the In-
dustrial Record makes some pretty caustic
suggestions in reference to an investiga-
tion. This investigation may take place
in a few weeks.
Mr. F. J. O'Hara gives his views in this
issue of the Record and they are good ones,
too. If the operators as a rule will adopt
the same policy adopted by Mr. O'Hara
there will be great benefit to accrue.
And ninety-five per cent of the turpen-
tine was in the hands of the combine, or
out of the hands of the operator when
the sudden rise in prices occurred. The
Record predicted something like that
about three months ago.
The naval stores operators have learned
a great deal during the past three or four
years. They have a better understanding
of conditions and causes which lead up to
sudden changes now than they had a few
A HEART TO HEART TALK.
The Industrial Record, always the cham-
pion of the operator, watching carefully I
every feature of the naval stores indus-
try and never failing to advocate what
we regard to be the best interests of the
"man in the w-ods," solicits a heart to
heart talk just now with every produ-
Sprse spurt in turpentine is of ad-
vantage to the operator and factor to a
marked degree, provided that the proper
causes can be assigned and provided also
that the operator is not to be carried away
to the point of excess by the increase in
price and led to discontinue the policy of
reduced box cutting and reduced price of
It must first be borne in mind that this
spurt has come at a time when it is
of little benefit to the operator. But
there are only a few independent opera-
tors who have been holding their turpen-
tine and there are few of the dependent
operators who have been dealing with hon-
est factors who will profit likewise by this
advance. But if spirits reach sixty cents
more damage to the operator than benefit
will accrue if the sudden advance is to in-
fluence operators to become careless and
heedless of their New Years' resolution to
reduce box cutting and regulate conditions
and prices of labor.
The Industrial Record believes that it
has the confidence of the operator. It
ought to have. And now there is the
thought conveyed by just two words which
we desire to impress upon the operator.
It is this:
GOOD SHOWING OF FERNANDINA
The showing made by the port of Fer-
nandina for the year 1907 is an excellent
one. In fact there is not a port in the
South unless it is Jacksonville, which can
show such a remarkable increase in busi-
The figures presented in the current is-
sue of the Fernandina Record show that
there has been a gain of about forty-five
per cent in the volume of business this
year over last.
The shipment of lumber has been the
great factor and Fernandina has sent car-
goes to nearly every civilized country dur-
ing the past year. Added to this is the
great naval stores and phosphate trade.
Naval stores has been a great factor in
the volume of trade which this port has
enjoyed and most of the naval stores sent
to foreign countries has been sent by
At present there is not much doing at
any of the ports of the South Atlantic.
Lumber is far below the cost of produc-
tion and shipments in consequence are
small. This will have a great effect on
Fernandina, but when the price advances
and shipments again become normal in
extent, Fernandina will have her usual
share of the business.
REAL ESTATE IN JACKSONVILLE ON
The most favorable indication for Jack-
sonville and for Florida is found in the
fact that real estate values have not de-
clined in Jacksonville during the present
stringent times. To the contrary there
are reasons for the statement that they
While there have not been as many
sales as were recorded during the months
of August and September, the values have
remained intact and the owners of prop-
erty have had no disposition to sell at a
sarifiee or for prices lower than those
for which they sold some time ago.
The latest reports are to the effect that
there are more people in Jacksonville this
winter than there have been for any like
season of the year for the past ten years
and that a great many of them are here
looking for homes.
Renting agencies declare that they have
more demands for houses and rooms than
they can fill and a great many of those
who came here for the purpose of renting
houses have decided to buy.

SULAR NAVAL STORES COM-
At the annual meeting of the Peninsu-
ar Naval Stores Company, which took
place here Thursday:
The annual report of President Ashley
showed the company to be in an excellent
condition and referred dto some extent to
the conditions in the naval stores trade
for the past year.
A dividend of 10 per cent was declared
b ythe board of directors, and the follow-
ing officers were elected for the ensuing

VEGETABLE GROWERS ARE TO MEET
The State Fruit and Vegetable Growers'
Protective Association, which found its
original conception in Gainesville, through
the efforts and energy of the Gainesville
Melon Growers' Association, but which
affects every grower in the State, will
meet in Jacksonville on Tuesday, January
7, the object of this meeting being a con-
ference with the railroad officials in regard
to rates, etc.
F. D. Warner, president of this associa-
tion, in referring to the meeting Monday,
stated that it was the desire and deter-
mination of the association to secure car-
load rates on fruits and vegetables to
eastern markets, thus putting an end to
the alleged discrimination by the railroads
in favor of other sections.
FERNANDINA HAS GOOD PROSPECTS
FOR THE PRESENT YEAR.
(By J. O. LaFontisee.)
Much has been written of Fernandina
during the year just passed. More will be
written and said of her wonderful advan-
tages during the year 1908.
During the past year Fernandina has
outstripped any port in the Southeast in
the value of her foreign exports and has
succeeded in building up a larger and a
more permanent trade with the entire
Being the deepest water port south of
Norfolk and the easiest of access, Fernan-
dina has fallen into her great trade more
as a result of natural conditions than for
any commercial influence of the great cap-
tains of industry which have pressed her
The phosphate shipments, the naval
stores exports and the lumber trade have
been the potent factors which have figured
in the great record made by Fernandina
for the past year. The same conditions
which brought about this great trade are
apparent at the beginning of the new year
and the exporters who have headquarters
Fernandina are using them to advantage.
As a matter of course there is a dull-
ness in the lumber trade, which affects
Fernandina more than any other port,
but this may not long continue.
To add to the bright prospects apparent
on every hand the government has com-
menced work on an extensive project for
deepening and extending the usefulness of
the inner harbor. This contract calls for
an expenditure of $115,000, and added to
this is an appropriation for the improve-
ment of the jetties and a continuous ap-
propriation for their maintainance. Re-
cently the committee of engineers from
Washington spent a day at Fernandina. in-
specting her harbor with a view of making
suggestions. Their report has not been
published, but all of them stated verbally
that they were deeply impressed with the
manifold advantages of this, the deepest
water harbor on the South Atlantic.
The government appreciates the value of
thiq harbor and is inclined to take active
steps for its maintenance and improve-
ment. Not only this, but there has been
an appropriation of $115,000 for a new
government building there.
Great interest is being manifested
throughout Georgia for the carrying on of
the project of connecting the Suwannee
and the St. Marys rivers, thereby provid-
ing for a canal across the northern part
of the State. This project has the advan-
tage of all others for a canal across the
State of Florida to connect the Atlantic
with the Gulf and there appears to be only
a question of time before an appropria-
tion to carry on this work and push it to
completion is made.
When this is done Fernandina will be at
the eastern terminal of one of the most
important waterways in the country, an
advantage which in itself will give her a

An Apeal from a Producer.
Thorsby, Ala., Dec. 30, 1907.
[ldustrial Record, Jeaksonville, Fla.,
Dear Editor-As I am a producer I have taken quite an interest in your
ffarts in behalf of the turpentine producer. Your efforts are very much ap-
reciated by all the operators in our section, for if ever the producer needed
usistamae certainly now is the time.
The box cutting in this section s very small thus far, the producer while
aliing that while limiting the Cp tting of new boxes can have but little .f-
feet oa the market so long as it is in the hands of a trust, yet he feels that
this is about the only thing to do, owing to the limited amount of money the
produers Ma able to mature an the waste of timber unprostably. For cer-
tainly no one expects to make money so long an S. P. 8HOTTER and ASSO-
'IIATES can place the market at twenty-five cents per gallon if he sees fit
to do so.
We producers MUST become alive to the situation, assist MR TOOMER
a his efforts to get the trust looked into, for certainly it would not take very
'reful investigation to find a TRUST that is doing more harm today than
the Standard Oil Co. ever did.
Producers should not heed the arguments put up by the paper published
by 8. P. Shotter or perhaps better known as the SAVANNAH NAVAL
TIRESB REVIEW. This paper is naturally supposed to back its owner.
The argument that keeping a product off the market (as the Review is al-
ways careful to remind you that this is the cause of low turps.) is a cause
for low prices is somewhat amusing to its readers. I would certainly like
to know the percentage of believers of all this bosh. And again, you will re-
member that until it became generally known by every school boy that had
a fourth cousin in the turpentine business, that the production this year was
far short of last year the Review was continually crying out OVER PRO-
DUCTION. Now we produevers are wondering what is coming next It may
be that yo will see in large print on the first page a heading as follows:
ALL TIE UsER OF SPIRlTS TURPENTINE RECENTLY DIED, AND
WE CAN'T EXPBT A RAISE IN THE VALUE UNTIL MORE CONSUM-
888 GROW UP.
In concluding, the writer wishes to say that let all of us pull for the Record
mad Mr. Toomer, for certainly they are the ones who are fighting for what is
pust and right. Yours very truly,
N. W. SMITH.

GONZALEZ & SANCHEZ TO BUILD CI-
GAR FACTORY HERE.
The Gomuales & Sanchez Company,
which manufactures high grade cigars,
will construct a splendid and commodious
new factory on West Ashley street, near
The new factory site is on West Ash-
iey street, just st of Bridge street, and
will involve a total expenditure of over
twenty thousand dollars. The building
is being erected for us under a rental con-
tract by Mrs. Ida Stansell, and the
plans and specifications were prepared by
J. H. W. Hawkins, architect, who will also
supervise the construction. It is to be. a
two-story fre-proof brick building, with
a large dry cellar for operating purposes.
The building will have a capacity of
between five and six hundred hands.
The plans and specifications of the
building are patterned after the big fac-
tories at Tampa and Key West, and every
detail has been given close attention by
the architect, who made a special trip to
Tampa to make examinations.
CITRUS FRUIT MARKET DOWN.
The citrus fruit market, so far as Flor-
ida is concerned is not what it ought to
be and there is a feeling that the prices
are to go lower.
The character of the Florida fruit this
year is not up to the standard and this
has mitited against the market prices.
Wh m. the siaon opened prices for fruit
e the trees Was even ahead of what it is
in New York at this time.
There appears little to promise better
conditions and owners of citrus fruit
groves in Florida are inclined to view the
situation as being unfavorable.
STAKE THE CENTER OF STRAW-
Every section of Florida has its claim
upon one particular agricultural or hor-
ticultural industry. As a producer Florida
ranks ahead of any other Southern State.
All kinds of vegetables and fruits are
grown in abundance in Florida and the
market for them is growing every day.
One of the most profitable crops in this
State is strawberries. Starke has long
been considered the center of the straw-
berry trade, so far as Florida is concerned,
and there have been fortunes made there
as a result of devotion to this great indus-
This year the acregae is to be larger
than ever in the past and there are indi-
cations which point to a great crop. With
strawberries bringing a fair price Starke
will enjoy a great prosperity this spring.
This will be richly deserved, for not only
are the conditions favorable but the peo-
ple of that section are inclined to take
advantage of everything which nature of-
VEGETABLES MOVING FROM DADE
Miami, Jan. 7.-The early veytable sea-
son is upon the truckers of lower Dade
and daily great quantities of beans, pep-
pers, eggplant and tomatoes are moving
northward, and already the truckers are
beginning to receive checks from the sale
of their produce. Although this portion
of Florida has been visited with a long
drouth, the later crops were never in bet-
ter condition than now, and never gave
promise of a larger yield. Planting on the
glades is still going on and will through
the month of January and perhaps later.
There is every indication now that the
crops will be equal to any ever grown here
and the general opinion is that prices will
be good throughout the season. Messrs.
Jaudon Brothers, vegetable and fruit bro-
kers, have shipped three full cars .besides
a large quantity by express. Messrs.
Hughes & Co., commission merchants and
brokers, are also shipping large lots by
express. R. F. Hoyle, another commission
house and broker, is also receiving large
quantities which he is shipping via ex-
press. Many of the farmers are eonsiin-
ing their own shipments to commission
merchants in the northern cities. If no
unfavorable conditions arise,- the lower
East Coast will send forward more than
its usual amount of garden truck.
MIAMI WILL HAVE A STRONG BOARD
The articles of incorporation of the
Miami Board of Trade have been received
at Miami, duly signed by Judge Minor 8.
Jones, and recorded in the clerk's office.
This puts the board in position to make

Treasurer Cohen, who is also the trustee
for the board of trade, says that he is
having numerous calls for allotments of
the lots in the district donated by the
Briekells for cigar factory purposes. The
board held its annual meeting last night
for the election of officers; but at this
writing they are in session and no elec-
tion yet. W. W. Prout, who has been the
president of the board for the past year
or more, has tendered his resignation, so
that a new president will be elected. The

members and an effort will be made to get

NEW YORK AND BROOKLYN TUNNEL
NOW IN OPERATION.
The first passenger train passed under
the new tunnel between Manhattan and
Brooklyn, N. Y., shortly before 1 o'clock
Thursday morning. Starting from the
Bowling Green Station on the Manhattan
sidwe of the river, it reached the Borough
Hall Station in Brooklyn in about six
minutes, and with the starting back of the
train the regular interborough service was
put into operation.
This tunnel links closer even than the
Williamsburg and Brooklyn bridges the
boroughs of the Manhattan and Brooklyn,
says the New York Herald, for it enables
the New Yorkers to travel from the Bronx
to the heart of the city across the East
river without change of cars. There are
two tubes, which start at the Battery and,
dipping far under the river, emerge at
Borough Hall, Brooklyn.
Bids for the construction of the tunnel
were opened on July 21, 190. The bids
called for the construction of a subway
from the Brooklyn bridge station in Man-
attan to Flatbush avenue junction in
Eight-ear trains will be run through
the tunnel under a headway during the
rush hours at intervals of two minutes.
Under this headway it will be possible
to carry easily and comfortably 30O
passengers through the tunnel. The com-
pletion of the tunnel means that passen-
gers an now ride eighteen miles over an
underground railroad that cost o00,000,000
all told, for a 5-cent fare.
