YOUNG PEOPLE BUYING REAL ES-
TATE ARGUES WZLL FOR
Real estate dealers of Jacksonville see
indications for continued prosperity of the
city in the many real estate transfers
which are being-made today. It is not
so much the number, but it is the charac-
ter of the transfers which is having the
effect of stimulating hope and confidence
in the future of the fastest growing city
in the South.
Those who have only a few dollars to
put away are buying.Jacksonville real es-
tate. and especially suburban property.
Most of this class consists of young peo-
ple, who are purchasing today with a
hope of some day acquiring a home. The
sales of suburban property the past six
months, as one of the largest dealers in
real estate remarked yesterday, insures
the steady and rapid rate of building which
is surprising to the most of us today.
There appears to be a more general and
a more active interest among the young
people of today to invest their savings.
Some are placing their surplus in the sav-
ings banks, but the great many acres of
property which have beon purchased by
them in the suburban sections tell with
emphasis that they are beginning to see
that "there is no better investment on
earth than in earth itself."
Another good indication is the remarka-
ble extent of building in the outskirts of
the city. There never was a time in the
life of Jacksonville when there was such
a campaign of building on the outskirts,
and it is extending every day. A great
many of the new homes are being acquir-
ed by young people and by strangers who
are coming to Jacksonville fast. The price
of rents in the old part of the city has
advanced almost 25 per cent within the
year, and there is a greater demand for
rental property at that advance than can
But the best indication for Jackson-
ville's future is to be found, after all, in
the fact that the young men and young
women of Jacksonville are investing in
THE BOARD OF TRADE HAS MUCH
WORK LAPPED OUT FOR THE
Under the new administration the Jkck-
sonville Board of Trade is pursuing the
same active course which has always
characterized that body. and which has
been such a forceful factor in the work
of building Jacksonville.
President W. A. Bours has his commit-
tees appointed and there have been meet-
ings of them during the past two weeks.
The committee on new enterprises has a
great deal of new work mapped out and
has taken up the questions presented by
the prospective establishment of a cotton
warehouse and other enterprises with com-
The committee sees much work ahead
of it for the coming year. There has never
been a time when there were so many op-
portunities for the establishment of fac-
tories and new industries in Jacksonville
as those which were presented on the
threshold of the present year. It is the
prediction of some of those who have been
looking into the matter closely, that the
present year will see many additions to
Jacksonville's manufacturing plants and
new business enterprises. Some of those
mentioned a few days ago are sure and
others are fairly on the way to establish-
It is confidently believed that the addi-
tion of new factories and industries in
1908 in Jacksonville is to keep up with
the present great rate at which homes are
being built and population added. This
is a most favorable indication, and one
which is going to stimulate business and

WHY' SUCCX88FUL BUSINESS MNE
ADVOCATE unzmrvmauG IN RAL
During the past few days much has
been said by those who are familiar with
Jacksonville about the advantages of in-
vesting in Jacksonville real estate, and
especially suburban property.
There are none who are not convinced
that Jacksonville is to continue to grow.
They have noted the great strides in build-
ing which Jacksonville is making at the
present time and the great many business
and industrial enterprises which she has
been adding to her resources. The charac-
ter of the growth being made by Jackson-
ville at this time a suea as to guarantee
In all of the larger cities of the country
the greatest fortunes, as a rule, have
been made by those who have purchased
property on the fringe of a growing city
and have waited for the growth of the city
to enhance their holdings. In a great
mny instances fortunes were made in
only a few years. The Asters became rich
in this way, and there are thousands of
others in New York City who purchased
property when Fifty-second street was not
surveyed and who are wealthy now.
The same opportunities prevail in Jack-
sonville, though it is admitted that Jack-
sonville will not be the city New York is
today for years to come at least. But
Jacksonville is growing, and the holders
of suburban property find that they are
making money by the enhancement in the
value of their property.
Investment in real estate is always
sure. It is regarded as the only sure in-
vestment which can be made. Those who
have made a practice of investing in realty
Instead of in stocks, bonds, margins, etc.,
have ever been successful. The leaders in
business and statesmanship in this coun-
try today are positive in giving their opin-
ions that real estate investment is the
best. Here is what President Roosevelt
"Every person who invests in well-se-
lected real estate in a growing section of
a prosperous community adopts the safest
and surest method of becoming indepen-
dent, for real estate is the basis of all
William Jennings Bryan: "Real estate
is the best investment for small savings.
More money is made in the rise of real es-
tate values than in all other cause com-
bined. To speculate in stocks is danger-
ous, but when you buy real estate you are
buying an inheritance."
Andrew CQrnegie: "The wise young
man or wage-earner of today invests ais
money in real estate-suburban real es-
Ex-President Cleveland: "No invest-
meat on earth is so safe, so sure, so ear-
tain to enrich its owner as undeveloped
real estate. I always advise my friends to
place their savings in realty near some
grlng~.city. There is no such savings
BRADFORD FARMER TELLS OF HIS
SUCCESS AT STARKR.
Mr. J. M. Brownlee, of Starke, refers
to the advantages of that place, and what
he has accomplished, in a letter, as fol-
"My father moved to this section from
Mississippi some twenty years since, when
I was a child, and purchased the farm I
am still living on. He was the pioneer of
the strawberry industry here that has
grown to such large proportions, and is
still enlarging every year. Taking past
ten years the net profits per ace on our
farm on strawberries averages fully $250.
Our books show that some years it was
nearly double this per acre. Our farm
now produces crops as follows:
Strawberries, 100 to 113 bushels per
"Sea Island cotton, 1,200 pounds in
seed per acre, or cash value $100.
"Irish potatoes, 15 barrels to 1 of seed,
or 45 barrels per acre.
"Sweet potatoes, same season following
berries, 300 bushels per acre.
"Sugar cane, 20 barrels, or 600 gallons
syrup per acre."
"Corn, 45 bushels per acre. Oats, 40
bushels per acre."
Starke and Bradford county are attract-
ing more attention just at this time than
ever before. Settlers are beginning to ar-
rive there, and that place will add consid-
erably to its population this winter.
DIRECTORY COMPILER SAY JACK-
SONVILL HAS GROWN FAST.
Information given by those who are
compiling the new Jacksonville city di-
rectory ought to be taken into considera-
tion by those who contemplate investment
in Jacksonville real estate.
The figures show that during the past
year the city has added at least 10,000
people to its population, and that the
residence sections have extended for miles
in Riverside and in Springfield. The ad-
dresses given of residents of Jacksonville
will give numbers this year many blocks
from where the last number of some
streets appeared in the directory for 1907.
What is stated by those who are in
charge of the work of giving Jacksonville
a complete directory can be approved by
any one who has recently made visits to
the outskirts of the city. Those who
have visited Riverside and have viewed
the remarkable progress in building and
the extent to which it has extended in
distance will not doubt the truth of the
statements made by the directory people.
During the year there have been a great
many homes built in PRiverside, and the
city has extended for a great distance in
The increase in the value of suburban
property has been great during the peat
twelve months This has been due to the
fact that there has been a great growth
of population and an addition to the
building in the suburban sections. At
the same rate the city has grown for the
year 1907, property which is regarded as
outside the resident section to-day will
be worth twice as much in 1900 as it is
Property in Murray Hill Heights has
greatly enhanced in value the past year,
and is enhancing in value every day. Ad-
joining Murray Hill Heights is West End,
one of the most desirable sub-divisions
of the city, where lots are to be sold, be-
gining on next Monday, at prices which
are far below the prices asked for and the
recognized value of lots in Murray Hill
When this sale begins at the offices of
the Jacksonville Development Company
on Monday, there will be another op-
portunity offered to place money in subur-
ban property which is offered at figure
which insures a good investment.
The indications are that there is to be
a big sale of these lots on the opening day.
A great many of the prospective pur-
chasers have visited the property and de-
clared it to be a most desirable tract.
Iots in West End are to sell fbr $50
at the opening of the sale and until twen-
ty-five lots have been sold. After the
sale of that number of lots prices are to
be advanced $10 per lot.

Government to Institute Vigorous
Suit Against Naval Stores
The Industrial Record learns in an au-
thentic way that the Government will in-
stitute, at an early day, a thorough invtes-
tigation into the naval stores market con-
ditions which have prevailed since May.
1907, and that there will be vigorous
action against the parties shown to be
responsible for these conditions.
That these conditions have been with-
out a parallel in market manipulations the
whole industry now realizes and it is thor-
oughly realized, also, that the recent finan-
cial conditions afford no explanation of
these market conditions for the reason
that the market was outrageously manipu-
lated before the financial depression was
even anticipated. The developments from
these investigations will be watched with
deep interest by the entire industry, for
it is now apparent that there will be no
prosperity, or profit or normal conditions
existing in this industry until the parties
responsible for these market manipulations
are eliminated and punished.
In referring to the prospects for active
measures in behalf of the naval stores in-
dustry, the Times-Union says:
"Once again the United States is looking
into the naval stores situation and once
again legal action may be taken by the
United States against those alleged to be
manipulating the market.
"Following a conference last Friday
night in Savannah between Col. W. M.
Toomer and Mr. E. C. Patterson of Jack-
sonville, and United States District Attor-
ney Alexander Akerman, the last named
gentleman gave to the Savannah Morning
News the following interview:
"'It is true that I have been making
some investigation of the naval stores sit-
uation, and I will say that I do not be-
lieve present conditions are justified by
the legitimate laws of trade that is to say,
the laws of supply and demand.
"There has been no overproduction and
the demand is good, while the prices, par-
ticularly of spirits, are abnormally low.
Laid Before Department.
"'As to whether those conditions are
brought about by methods which are vio-
lative of the laws of the United States, I
can make no statement until the matter
has been acted upon by the department of
justice in Washington.'
"This ends the interview with Mr. Aker-
man, but the Savannah Morning News
"'There are reasons to believe that Mr.
Toomer and Mr. Patterson convinced Dis-
trict Attorney Akerman that the federal
anti-trust laws are being violated by cer-
tain naval stores interests in this district.'
Then follows a discussion as to the means
of getting proof, and a little later comes
'The fact that District Attorney Aker-
man has deferred drawing the grand jury

"Col. W .11. Toomer, who has returned
to Jacksonville, was seen yesterday by a
Times-Union reporter, shown the story in
the Savannah Morning News, and asked if
he could announce any further details.
"'It would be a violation of the pro-

the southern members are asking for is
the principal. The interest on the debt
for forty years is being ignored. In view
of the action of congress on the "sugar
bounty claims," and the "French spolia-
tion claims," they have strong hopes that
the cotton tax claims will be approved.
The opinion of Chief Justice Fuller, in
rendering a decision of the court in the
income tax case, is adverted as having
a direct bearing upon the legal question
involved in the present ease.
Legal Argumenta Unanswerable.
Representative Clark's address in the
house a few days ago in which he reviewed
the law and the evidence in the cotton tax
case would, in the opinion of leading law-
yers of the house, have undoubtedly won
a favorable decision if the case had been
pending in the Supreme Court of the
United States. It was a masterly, eoa-
plete and thorough presentation of the
whole subject. So comprehensive an argu-

boast of the people of this place being
that Sanford is excelled by New Smyrna
in the character of the celery grown for
the early marketing.
There is every indication that New
Smyrna is to keep up the rate of growth
which she has experienced for the past
two years. The fact is there is every
thing to point to the fact that the city
has only commenced to develop, and to
prepare for occupying the important com-
mercial position which her location as-
sures for the future.
There is not a city on the East oast
and there is not a city in the State of
Florida, which has enjoyed a greater
growth than has New Smyrna. It is be-
ginning to reeognise its commercial ad-
vantage, and when the appropriation for
deep water has been made New Smyrna
will secure the traffic through its port
from a large territory.*
There has been a great change in an
industrial sense on the East Coast, but
there has not been a town nor a section
which has made greater progress than
has New Smyrna and all of Volusia coun-
The people of Volusia county long since
repognised the advantages to be had from
good roads, and have been building them
at the rate of twenty miles every year,
for the last several years. This part of
the county has her proportion of these
roads, and they extend from New Smyrna
to the best and most productive farming
The position which New Smyrna oc-
cuples, geographically, is much in her fa-
Sor, but there are other elements which
insure her future rapid growth. In three
years New Smyrna will be a city of 6000
inhabitants. This estimate is regarded by
some as very small.
"JACKONVILLu TO coTIrrNU TO
GROW," SAYS CAPTAIN GARNmR.
"Of course Jacksonville is to continue to
grow," said Clpt. C, E. Garner, president
of the Florida National Bank yesterday.
"I believe that we are to have the largest
population of any Southern city in the
next few years. At any rate, we are grow-
ing now4kster than any city in the South.
"So far as the future is concerned, I
believe that it is bright. I see nothing to
keep Jacksonville from continuing to
grow. We have at present a great many
enterprises and industries, and we are
adding more. The growth of the city in
the suburbs is wonderful. There has been
nothing to equal it in the history of aay
of the cities of the South. I believe that
the growth of the city at the present
time is even surprising to the people of
Jacksonville who have been among the
most enthusiastic in predicting a great
future for Jacksonville.
IThere has been a great improvement
in the business center of the city the past
year, and there has also been a great im-
provement in the resident and suburban
sections. I believe that the greatest
growth has been in the suburbs and that
there has been a great enhancement of
realty values in outlying sections. I have
the greatest confidence in Jacksonville and

MR. J. E. T. BOWDEN TALKS OF JACK-
SONVILLE'S GREAT GROWTH.
One of the best informed men so far as
Jacksonville real estate is concerned, is
Mr. .1. E. T. Bowden, ex-mayor of the
city. and one of the largest holders of
real estate in Jacksonville today.
In referring to the growth of Jackson-
ville yesterday, Mr. Bowden said:
"Ten years from today this city will
have a population of 150,000. The fact
is, she is growing so fast today that
even that figure will appear small when
you consider present indications.
"I came to Jacksonville in June, 1867.
At that time there were between four and
five thousand people in the city. The
most interesting as well as the largest and
highest building at that time was the
Masonic Temple, at the corner of Laura
and Bay streets, where now stands the
West building. The Masonic Temple at
that time was a three-story brick struc-
ture, and the pride of Jacksonville.
"' will never forget St. James Park at
that time. The St. James Hotel had ac-
commodations for about 100 people, and at
that time the park was the circus ground.
It was nothing but an old field. I was
mayor of LaVilla, then a separate mu-
niciuality. for the term of 1887-88. At
that time the western boundary for Jack-
sonville proper was Clay street. The
eastern boundary was where the Valdoeta
building now stands, the southern bound-
arv was the river and the northern bound-
ary was Hogan's Creek.
"The change has been a gradual one,
and it has been due to natural conditions
rather than to any spasmodic effort on
the part of the people of the city to see
that the city grew in population and in
the number of industries and enterprises.
"You may claim that I am exaggerat-
ing, hut I claim that the city is, in build-
ing today, growing fast enough to war-
rant the assertion that I have made, that
in ten years Jacksonville is to have 150,-
000 population. Jacksonville is building
faster than any of us think. I have been
all over the city, and its suburbs in an
automobile during the past few weeks
and I have been surprised to note the
extent of the building now in progress.
"Jacksonville is growing faster now
than she did right after the great fire,
and the limits of the city are extending
every day. I believe that this is to be
the largest city in the South in the next
few years excepting only New Orleans.
"It is no exaggeration to state that
Jacksonville will have 150,000 people in
ten years. I believe it as firmly as I be-
lieve that this is the best city in the
State. Wait and see.
"The suburbs of today will be the cen-
tre of population tomorrow. You refer to
the Clark building on Main street. This
is a fine structure, but I believe that I
will live to see the time when there are
just as expensive structures erected in
Mr. Bowden is one of the oldest res-
idents of Jacksonville, and has always
assumed a great interest in the growth
and prosperity of the city. When he
states that Jacksonville is to grow, he
makes the statement after the most care-
ful consideration and. bases it on what
Jacksonville has accomplished up to the
THEME ARE NONE WHO ARE "LAND
POOR" IN THE STATE TODAY.
There was a time in Florida when the
term "land poor" was applied to the hold-
ers of real estate, and especially to those
who had large tracts of timber and farm-
It does not require the knowledge only
of the oldest citizen of Florida to recall
when this was the case. The fact is
those who were here ten and twelve years
ago can recall the use of that term as ap-
plied to the largest owners of land in
But there is a great contrast today.
It is the man who has the land who is
regarded as wealthy.
Some of the largest land owners dis-
posed of a great part of their holdings
several years ago, when they thought
that the land was not worth the taxes
they were forced to pay upon it. They
sold to shrewd investors who -are here
today and who have made fortunes, in
some instances off small investments.
To illustrate the rapid enhancement
which Florida real estate has made dur-
ing the past twelve years, it is only nee-
essary to recall the time when some of the
best timber land sold for as low as $.25
per acre. Today that same land is worth
three and four times that amount, and
there have been sales of timbered lands
in Florida at $12 an acre, ad even that
price was regarded as cheap when the
character of the timber was considered.
No better illustration of the gradual
enhancement of real estate can be cited
than the disappearance of the term "land-
poor." There are none who are "land
poor" today. The fact is, the value of
land in this and other States is increasing
every year, and it is doing so at a rapid
There is property on the outskirts of
Jacksonville now which is worth, and is
selling for 200 a lot, which eould have
been had almost by the acre at that price
several years ago. The growth Jackson-
ville has made has enhanced the price of
that property. The same ratio of in-
creased value is being kept up today, and
will continue as long as the city continues
In the country districts the demand for
farm lands, the naval stores and lumber
industries, have been responsible to a large
extent for the enhancement of realty val-
ues, but added to these causes is the
steady and rapid growth of Florida's pop-
SAW MILLS HAVE NOT RESUMED
OPERATIONS IN GEORGIA AND
Though reports of the resumption of
operations are being persistently circu-
lated, in the great majority of eases the
reports of such action is not borne oat
by the facts. Of course there may be some
of the smaller mills that have been un-
wise enough at his time to begin opera-
tions anew. but to say the least this ae-
tion was ill-advised when all conditions
are considered. *
In Savannah at least there is no sub-
stantial indication that cutting operations
have been resumed, and when all is said
and done it is rather evident that it would.
be a very unwise thing to start up the
mills of the interior just at this time when
the general demand is so greatly lacking
and when there is not even a semblance
of a ready market for the material. True,
there may have been a shade of improve-
ment in the Eastern markets as some
would contend, but it is just as reason-
able to suppose that this was only a spas-
modic brightening and that there will be
no permanent betterment of general mar-
ket conditions within the next few weeks.
Just why erroneous reports of the re-
sumption of sawmilling operations should
be so persistently circulated from this
section when the reports in a great ma-
jority of the cases at least are misleading
is rather difficult to understand; still, at
the same time the persons responsible for
these reports must concede that the inte-
rior millmen are as a whole a fairly in-
telligent lot of men-men who can fully
appreciate the evils possible to arise from
the resumption of business when the de-
mand is so slack, and the writer at least
believes that investigation would prove
that the reports were erroneous and do not
reflect true conditions as they'really ex-
ist in the Southeastern setion at least.
