THE RECORD APPEALS TO PRODUCERS.
Operators Are Again Paying Unreasonable
Prices For Chipping
Information has been received by the
Record to the effect that some operators
are inclined to advance the price of chip-
ping far beyond reason and far in advance
of the prices decided upon by the Execu-
tive Commitee of the T. O. A.
Some operators are going so far as to
offer, and even pay, 75 and 80 cents. It is
beyond the comprehension of the Record
as well as the Jacksonville factors, how
any sane man, in the face of present con-
ditions and future prospects can pay
such an unreasonable price to labor.
From 55 to 65 cents for chipping is even
a high price, when present conditions are
taken into consideration. Operators as
well as factors, have noted the surprising-
ly downward trend of naval stores for the
past year. There are a few cases where
the operators have come out with a bal-
ance on the right side. The majority
Producers of naval stores ought to, at
the beginning of this producing season, de-
termine to conduct their business on a
strictly business basis. If they will do
this, the first work, and one to be accom-
plished at once, is a study and better
understanding of the situation, past, pres-
ent and future. They may study the past
from their books and cash accounts, the
present from conditions which prevail in
Savannah and Jacksonville today. The fu-
ture as a matter of course in connection
with naval stores, is hard to determine,
but the operators must bear in mind that
the recent financial panic in Wall Street
has left in its wake a financial stringency
which must and will seriously affect the
marketing of naval stores.
Factors may not have the money to ad-
vance the coming producing season they
have had in the past, and the dependent
operator must guard well the extent of
his expenditures. Factors are inclined to
watch with the greatest care the policy
pursued by those to whom they may be
called upon to make advances. The Rec-
ord is assured that factorage houses will
not continue to advance to those who do
not confine themselves within the bounds
We are approaching a Presidential year,
and the business men know what that
means. It disturbs business, interferes
with every line of trade to a greater or
less extent, and has its effect upon the fi-
nancial conditions of the country.
The Record is becoming somewhat impa-
tient in this campaign in the interest or
the operator and we care little whether we
are to be accused of scolding or not. We
are working in the interests of the "man
in the woods," have done so in the past
and will continue to do so in the future,
regardless of any obstacles we are to en-
counter. A few weeks ago we were grati-
fied to note what we considered a general
spirit of unity among operators in an
effort to regulate the price of labor. To-
day, we find that we were somewhat op-
timistic in our views.
Finally, we desire to impress upon each
and every dependent or independent ope-
rator the absolute necessity of confining
his operations within the limits prescribed
by present conditions. If this is not done
the operator will be the one to lose.

GREAT SALE OF TOWN LOTS IN NEW
SMYRNA INSTILLS LIFE INTO
New Smyrna, Fla., Feb. 28.-New life
was instilled in New Smyrna yesterday
when the Jacksonville Development Com-
pany disposed of, at auction, a large part
of what is known as the Andrews Tract
on the river front, and adjacent to one of
the best resident and business sections of
For several years this tract has been
withheld from the market, and during
that time building along the water front
has been active. In fact, property ad-
joining this tract is occupied by some of
the finest homes on the Florida East Coast.
There was an urgent need for the open-
ing of this property for building sites,
and the extensive sale of yesterday indi-
cated the confidence with which the peo-
ple of New Smyrna, and adjoining coun-
try, regard the future of this place.
The business men of New Smyrna enter-
ed actively into the effort to secure new
settlers and increase value of realty
through the disposition of this property.
Thursday was made a gala day-several
of the business houses closing for the auc-
tion sale, and people coming from various
parts of the State to attend the sale. The
sale commenced at nine o'clock, and at
that time there was a large gathering
around the place where Mr. W. I. Phillips,
of the Jacksonville Development Com-
pany, was acting as auctioneer. Bids were
active, and every lot sold brought a pood
price. The majority of lots disposed of
were to those who intend building this
summer. Some of the lots will be used
for business sites, but the greater num-
ber for homes. The rapid progress New
Smvrna has made for the past five years
in building and industrial and commercial
development, insures a constant enhance-
ment of realty values there. The progress
New Smyrna has made has been due to
her many natural advantages and abun-
dant resources. Especially has progress
been made in fruit growing and truck-
farming. and the success achieved by those
connected with these industries has dem-
onstrated that New Smnyrna has adjacent
territory to draw from which may be
classed as the richest agricultural section
in the State.
Another element which has entered into
the progress of New Smyrna during the
nast few weeks is the active campaign
being made for deep water and which bids
fair to be successful. This alone will add
greatly to New Smyrna's commercial im-
New Smyrna expects a big building
boom the coming summer.
PENSACOLA LAYS CLAIM TO BEING
BEST LUMBER MARKET.
Although the foreign lumber and timber
markets have shown no appreciable gains
and continue to be unsteady the Pensa-
cola market for sawn timber still remains
above other gulf ports, a fact which has
caused comment alone, the entire gulf
coast. At Mobile. Gnlfnort. New Orleans.
and other markets, timber is quoted more
than I cent per foot on 30 foot averages
below the quotations at Pensacola, the rul-
ing prices here being 221i423 cents per
foot on such averages. Brokers explain
that the high prices beine paid here are
due solely to local conditions, and not to
any demand from foreign countries. One
or two of the large exporting firms re-
cently entered the market and bought up
all available timber tojfill their contracts;
and consequently the smaller exporters
who had contracts had to enter the mar-
ket, which had been practically bought
up and pay advanced prices for timber to
fill their contracts.

Something has been accomplished by a
vigorous policy, such as was promised

result is told in the market quotations.

Proceedings of the Fifteenth Annual Conven-
tion of the Florida Bankers' Association.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 22.-The first ses-
sion of the fifteenth annual convention of
the Florida Bankers' Association, which
convened in the Ansonia hotel Thursday
afternoon was a success from every stand-
point. Former Governor W. S. Jennings,
who was on the program to speak, was
compelled to leave on yesterday after-
noon's boat for his home in Jacksonville,
and was given right of way on the sched-
ule of the session yesterday in the ab-
sence of Mr. J. T. Dismukes, who was
billed to speak at that hour.
Following is a synopsis of the address,
Warehouse Receipts and Bills of Lading,
delivered by Mr. Jennings.
Mr. President and Members of the Flor-
ida Bankers' Association-For convenience
I shall divide this subject into two parts.
First, warehouse receipts; second, bills of
lading. I shall undertake to present,
briefly, some leading features of ware-
house receipts and bills of lading, from a
legal standpoint, and confine myself to
four general inquiries, namely:
First-What is a legal warehouse receipt
and bill of lading?
Second-What is the law of Florida and
its relation to the law of other States on
It is not, in the absence of statute, a
negotiable instrument, and an innocent
holder or indorsee does not occupy the po-
sition of one taking a promissory note
before maturity. A warehouse receipt is
regarded as representing the property de-
scribed in it, and an assignment and in-
dorsement of it is considered as equiva-
lent to the delivery of the property itself.
In some States, statutes make ware-
house receipts negotiable and transferable
by endorsement, in like manner as nego-
tiable paper, and with like remedies. *
The Florida statute of 1903 provides for
the issuance of a receipt by a warehouse-
man to the depositor, from whom he shall
receive personal property, as such bailee
for such described property, and agreeing
to deliver the same to the order of such
depositor, upon delivery of such receipt.
Such receipt shall be negotiable by m-
dorsement, transferring to the indorsee
tlo title, etc., such receipts may be depos-
ited as collateral security. It also pro-
vides for the substitution of certain prop-
erty of like grade, nature and quality, but
does not obligate the indorser as a guar-
What the law on warehouse receipts
ri:;_t to be? My answer to this question
is the adoption of the warehouse receipts
vet in Florida and other States. for the
purpose of making uniform the law of
warehouse receipts throughout the I'nit.
States * recommended by the com-
missioners on uniform State laws in nat-
ional conference in 1900. (See act for
Penalties. -It is made a crime for a
warehouseman to issue receipts for goods
not received; or containing false state-
ments; or to issue duplicate receipts not
so marked; or to issue receipts for the
warehouseman's own goods without a
statement to that effect; or to deliver
goods without the surrender and cancella
lion of a negotiable receipt. It is also a
crime for any person to deposit goods to
which he has no title, or upon which there
is a lien or mortgage and afterward ne-
gotiate the receipt therefore.
Bills of lading should contain some of
the same elements, and uniform bills of
lading should be authorized by law. A
bill of lading has been judicially defined to
be: "A written acknowledgment signed
by the master, that he has received the
goods therein described from the shipper,
.to be transported on the terms therein
expressed, to a described place or destina-
tion, and there to be delivered to the con-
signee or parties therein designated." It
should be signed on behalf of the carrier,
and where the shipper, with knowledge of
its contents accepts its terms, it is a bind-
A bill of lading, under the common law
in Florida, is not a negotiable instrument.
in the sense that a promissory note or bill
of exchange is negotiable. The
bill of lading represents the goods, and as
elltctive a transfer of ownership and
rights of possession may be made by a
transfer of the bill as may be made by
a specific delivery of the goods. The con.
signee's title is not complete until the
bill of lading comes into his hands; the
hill of lading is evidence of the title.
A ,bill of lading attached to and for-
warded with a time draft for the price of
the goods is, in the absence of special con-
ditions. security for the acceptance of the
draft, rather than for its payment. The
rights of a bank that loans money upon
the faith of such security are the same as
those of an actual purchaser of the goods
I have Ixfore me the ordinary forms of
hill of lading * *closing with these
words: "'This special and express contract
i, mlade with a thorough understanding
by the parties of all the term hereof."
The effect of these conditions is to relieve
the railroad company in large measure of
its responsibility for the safekeeping and
return of the property intrusted to its
care. Many States have enacted statutes
prohibiting such limitation and accepta-
tion. The rule followed in the federal
:ourts. which should be adopted and en-
acted as law in our State, is that no con-
tract by a common carrier for an exemp-

tion from responsibility shall be lawful,
unless it is just and reasonable in the eye
of the law.
The usefulness of bills of lading in com-
imercial transactions assumes a magnitude
second only to the currency of the comn-
try. It is estimated that more than 100,-
000,000 tons of merchandise was shipped in
the United States in 1007. Imports into
the United States reached upward of $1,-
000,000,000, and total exports reached prac-
tically $2,000,000,000 in value, all handled
by means of bills of lading.
The banking resources of Great Britain
and Ireland are nearly 1,0I,000,000 pounds
sterling. The resources of the banks of
the United States are approximately $8,-
000,000.000. Exchanges through elearing
houses in the great commercial world rep-
resent annually many times their ircula-
tion or deposits at any fixed date
The banking power of Rhode Island is
$377.55 per capital, and $1853 in Georgia,
the largest per capital State in the South.
In Massachusetts it is $328, and in ehow
York, $298. This banking power repre-
That Keep Time.
And that keep time under any and all cir-
cumstances, are what turpentine and lum-
ber men require.
These requirements are not met in every
watch, as all men know. It takes a good
watch to stand the rough usage of the
woods, so when you want one to stand
these exposures and to look nice, too-

seats the relative circulating medium of
the various sections of this country. It
illustrates the excess of money in parts
of the Untied States over commercial re-
quirements, and shortage of money in oth-
er sections to handle products and com-
merce so barely needed. We have three
staple products in the South, cotton lum-
ber and naval stores, from which was mar-
keted last year 800,000,000 feet of lumber
valued at $15,000,000; 12,000,000 bales of
cotton valued at $000,000,000; 30,000,000
gallons of turpentine valued at $15,00,00;
4,000,000 barrels of rosin valued at $15,-
00,000. For lack of sufficient money
available in handling these products the
Zpoducers of the South are forced to mar-
t their product as soon as manufac-
tured, causing a glut in the market, which
greatly lessens the price of the products.
This shortage of money and credit causes
the loss of millions of dollars annually
to the South.
The banking power of the world should
be invited to the southern field, and the
money and credit necessary to the proper
handling and financing the products of our
Southland can be greatly promoted by a
means of a greater use of negotiable ware- I
house receipts, and negotiable bills of lad-
ing, in warehousing and transporting the'
products of the South to the markets of
the world. The interests of the investor
and producer could be greatly enhanced
by an expansion of this superior line of
credit, made available, safe and conven-
ient by valid, uniform and negotiable
wacehouse receipts and bills of lading.
The Oyster aI stry.
Returnnig to the regular order of the
program, the address, The Fish Industry
of Florida, which was to have been deliv-
ered by W. H. Adams of Jacksonville, was
in his absence, read by the secretary,
George R. DeSaussure.
Mr. John G. Ruge of Apalachicola, then
read an interesting paper on The Oyster
Industry of Florida, in which the waters
containing the oyster beds were likened
to he farm lands, as being water farms,
which the State should foster, and the
legislature should protect the rights of
the owner of the water farm just as the
rights of the owner of a land farm are
Mr. Ruge also cited scientific evidences
of the healthfulness of the oyster, espec-
ially when eaten raw, giving proof that
instead, as some believe, raw oysters may
be productive of typhoid fever, they are
in reality an antidote to the germs of that
dreaded disease and the free use of raw
oysters is advisable. Another item of
blie interest was that many of the oys-
a formerly shipped presumably in
their own liquor in which salycilate acid
and borax largely predominated, making
the so-called fresh oysters a mass of "em-
Wmed dead bodies," a condition which
the pure food law has, in a measure, over-
Concerning the productiveness of the
yster, it is said that one healthy oyster
I produce from 40,000 to 00,000 eggs. It
ing announced that Mr. C. G. Memmin-
r, of Lakeland, who was expected to ad-
the association on Wednesday after-
n, could not be present, it was decided
o have Secretary DeSaussure read a pa-
on the Phosphate Industry of Florida,
ten by Mr. Memminger.
Following the reading of this paper a
ion prevailed that a vote of thanks be
tended to Mr. Memminger and all others
hoha vesent in papers to be read before
Chairman Wood of the entertainment
tee called attention to the chilly
condition of the weather and inquired if
it was the pleasure of the association to
carry out the program of going to Passe-
a-Grille tomorrow. The association unani-
mously agreed to carry out the program
of entertainment. It was also decided to
meet Friday morning at 8:30 for an in-
formal discussion until 9:30, the hour set
for the regular session, after which the
meeting adjourned to that hour.
Promptly at 8:30 o'clock on Friday
President Monroe called the association to
order in the informal discussion session.
(apt. Garner of the Inedpendent Line of
Steamers extended an invitation to the
association to take a steamer ride down
to the Manatee river and return tomorrow
Col. E. H. Myers rose and explained
that the 22d day of February is the day
of all days in St. Petersburg and he knew
that it would do all much good to see the
Mitchell, the Sand Man, didn't see how
the association could take the trip.
The celebration proved a greater attrac-
tion and it was considered due the hosts
of the convention that the convention re-
main over tonight to witness St. Peters-
burg's annual event.
Responding to an invitation from the
chair for a ten minutes "hot to hot" talk,
F. D. Bloodworth created much merriment
by his happy references to prohibition in
Georgia and to Secretary DeSaussure. who
as his former school mate, had kept him
from the foot of his classes.
Mr. Hardee of Live Oak said he didn't
at first fancy the constant reference to
Live Oak and Tampa, the only two town
in the State that issued clearing house
certificates. These constant flings about
clearing house certificates ought to be
stopped, especially when it is remembered
that Chicago, New York, Live Oak, and
Tampa all issued certificates. This sally
was enjoyed immensely by those present.
(hi motion it was decided that all reso-
lutions passed by the association should
Iw reported as passed unanimously, and
not as a minority or majority vote.
A -o~mmittee on resolutions was appoint-
ed by the chair.
The exercises having reached the hour
of 9:30, President Monroe announced that
the association would go into the regular
session according to the program.
Rlev. Hoyt made the prayer and invoked
the divine blessing upon the proceedings.
.-John T. lismukes, St. Augustine, then
delivered an address on Currency Famine
of 1907, a part of which was:
"The currency famine was an effect, the
cause going back several years ago, when
cheap money gave to the speculator a
credit which should have 'been reserved
for the stable man of business integrity
to be used to the advancement of local and
general prosperity within the lines of le-
gitimate success, and not to the exploit-
ation of the 'quick-rich' propositions, which
found their funeral (and there were many
of them) in the frenzied panic of 1907.
"We of the South, and especially in
Florida, were easy dupes to the conditions.
and nothing but the fact that we had more
ec'tal value lack of our expansion than
any other section of the country, enabled
Florida to pull through with less strain
than any other section of the Union.
"The growth of the speculative mania
after the recovery of the 1893 disaster was
Ieyon the dream of the ordinary gam-
hlir, and with cheap money, men without
business ideas, and, still worse, without
business integrity, were enabled to place

before the innocent and unsuspecting pub-
lic glittering propositions which in the
nature of positive assurance were fully
calculated to warp and turn aside from the
path of conservative gain the prudent and
careful business man in the hope of a near
cut to much wealth and a closing life in
competence. Why, then, should we feel
any surprise that the general public should
have been drawn within the maelstrom,
in the same happy hope, and bought share
after share of stock of the par value of
$1 to $10 per share at 3 to 50 cents, and
when awakened to the fact the certificates
were worth less than ordinary wallpaper,

The Cheap Credit.
The cheap credit to which I alluded en-
abled men of advanced (?) ideas to buy
up interests, and construct chains of banks
as in New York City, to enable them to
organize all sorts of combinations, mainly
illegitimate, and throw upon the market
and fill the coffers of other banks with
securities of doubtful value. The innocent
public were not aware of the conditions,
but the principal banks of the New York
Clearinghouse Association were in easy
touch of every movement and realized the
inevitable, and with the break in the mar-
ket, especially the copper stocks, in my
opinion, saw their opportunity to wipe
out the chain of banks which had been
operating upon the get-rich proposition,
and began to call in demand loans, upon
stock collateral, thus demoralizing the
market and forcing to liquidation the
chain of banks referred to, and the sit-
nation was so well understood by the
treasury department that it is a crown
of glory to Mr. Cortelyou that he prompt-
ly responded to the situation and sus-
* trained the associated banks of New York
city, which was reflected upon every bank
and every community in America."
This closed the literary part of the pro-
gram. Live Oak, Ocala and Jacksonville
were offered as desirous of having the
honor of the next annual convention.
Jacksonville withdrawing from the contest
in favor of the other two places, a motion
was made that the selection. should be
left to an executive committee.
Live Oak Next Year.
Mr. F. A. Wood offered a substitute
motion: With malice toward none, but
with charity for all, that this association
assemble in next annual convention in the
city of live Oak, some time in April, on
account of having warmer weather, pre-
vailed, and it was so ordered.
A committee of three was appointed to
retire and select the names of five men
to be recommended to the National Bank-
ers' Association as one of four on the
council of that association. The associa-
tion then proceeded to the election of offi-
ers for the ensuing year.
The name of F. A. Wood of St. Peters-
burg was presented for nomination. Im-
mediately on motion the nominations for
president were declared closed and the
secretary was instructed to cast the ballot
of this convention for Mr. Wood as its
next president. Other officers elected were
H. E. Taylor, first vice-president; Mr. Bar-
ton, second vice-president; James A. Grif-
flth, third vice-president; C. E. Garner,
fourth vice-president, and J. 8. Reese, fifth
vice-president. George E. Lewis, Talla-
hassee, was elected delegate to the Nat-
ional Bankers' Association, and Arthur
The committee on resolutions offered the
following resolution, which was adopted:
Your committee on resolutions desire
to congratulate the Florida Bankers' Asso-
elation on the pleasant, and, we hope,
profitable meeting held in this city, and
we desire to extend our heartfelt thanks
to the citizens of St. Petersburg for their
hospitable treatment, and we are pro-
foundly grateful for the efforts they have
so successfully put forth to make our stay
in their beautiful city a pleasant one. We
wish also to tender our thanks to the
press of St. Petersburg for the full reports
of our proceedings. Also to the Cuesta-
Rey Company and John G. Reese for fa-
C. E GARNER, Chairman.

Thanking the association for its cour-
tesy and support during his term of office,
President Monroe appointed a committee
of two to escort President-elect Woods to
the chair, and then the ex-president grace-
fully retired from his official capacity.
The New President.
Responding to the universal call for a
speech from the new president, Mr. Woods
Mr. President and Gentlemen-In the
first place, I want to express my appre-
ciation for the signal honor you have con-
ferrel upon me, in electing me president
of this association. I don't know why you
did so, unless it would be to get even with
me for bringing you down here in such
cold weather and among so many people.
While we have not been able to do all
that we should like to have done for your
entertainment, because all our hotels are
full to overflowing with our tourist friends,
we have done the 'best we could to make
you comfortable and your stay with us
It seems to me that this convention
should not adjourn without taking some
action on the great, vital questions which
confront the bankers of the United States
today, some action voicing the sense of
this meeting on the currency.
I can only say I shall try to serve this
honorable body to the best of my ability.
No president or secretary can make the
association; they both need your hearty
cooperation. I again thank you for the
honor conferred upon me, and I want you
all to go with us to Pass-a-Grille at the
close of this session.

8S6.080.00. In 1907, it was $223,014,009.00,
a very phenomenal growth.
Advantage to Investors.
The great advantage to the investor of
capital in property in this city and vicin-
ity, and for inducement to manufacturers,
is the fact that they can work every day
in the year. and help can be relied upon,
anl with the skilled labor that will be
brought and is here, will always insure a
supply of labor. Another important Tae-
tor in the building up of Jacksonville is
its cheap material. It is right here where
we can get the lime. Lime, rock and saud.
lere are some of the largest brick es-
tablishments in the country, and of the
best material for the construction of build-
ings. Here where we are close to the
very door of where the cement can be got-
ten in the western part of the State, so
that large buildings for manufacturing
purposes can be erected at a much less
cost than any city in the United States.
In fact, there is brick being manufactured
in this city that will stand any reasonable
test, and it can be made and delivered at
$6 per thousand, much cheaper and bet-
ter than could be gotten from any mar-
ket in this country.
Another important fact which should
not be lost sight of, is that Jacksonville
is one of the healthiest cities in the
United States; has the smallest death rate
to population. We have the best and
purest of water, absolutely germ-proof.
Situated as we are, upon the banks of the
beautiful and majestic St. Johns river,
whose water can be utilized for manufac-
turing purposes, is sure to attract the at-
tention of the manufacturer.
There is no city in the United States
having such superb transportation facil-
ities as Jacksonville, situated near the
great forests where timber can be gotten
at a low price, offers such inducement to
the small manufacturer and to the large
one (but more especially to the smaller
one). where he can get his r-"terial, start
on a small scale, and increase his plant
from time to time, until it grows into a
large institution. Every manufacturing
plant that has come to Jacksonville and
attended to business, has made money.
There is another great industry being
started for the manufacture of the pal-
metto plant. Its fiber is being used in
nmlkin" mattresses, brushes and also is so
treated that it is now being used in the
mixture of plaster, taking the place of
hair. and is destined to become one of
the great industries of our State and this
city. A large cigar factory is now build-
Building Property for Factories.
There can be procured in this city prop-
erty for building purposes that is unsur-
passed. as rights can be had along the
river front and railroad companies will
put spurs right at the factory door, so
that there need not he any hauling within
the city, and the same can be said as to
those wishing building sites along the
river front, where vessels can land, un-
load and load their cargoes. The class of
buildings that are being put up in this
city for business, manufacturing and for
residences, are among the most sugstan-
tial. and certainly will compare favorably
with those of older and larger cities.
Facts and Firures Are Given to Show
This City Has Made Great Growth
The Volume of Business.
The volume of business in this city dur-
'n"r the year 1907 amounted to over one
hundred and thirty-five million dollars, ac-
cordin! to the best information that can
be obtained, which speaks a volume for
the city as to the growth of tonnage by
river and ocean that comes to our docks.
Tn 1879, it was 494.474 tons. and in 1906,
it was over two million five hundred thou-
sand tons. Since the year 1906. the gov-
ernment has ceased keeping a record of
tonnage at this harbor. Our harbor and
river improvements are among the most
substantial, which is a guarantee to the
growth of our city. During the year 1907,
there were over 1,016 buildings erected in
this city, the estimated value of which
was something like three million and a
Our railroads are putting ia large plants.
The Seaboard Air Line is putting up shops
and terminals here in which they will work
over five thousand people, and everything
that is being done by the railroads aad
steamship companies is on this gigantic
scale, which is an assurance that those
investing capital here in manufacturing
interests will have quick and rapid tiras-
portation to the section of country that
they wish to reach.
1oo000 in g190.
These are a few facts that convince me
that Jacksonville will have over one hun-
dred thousand inhabitants in 1910. I have
not time to go more into details, because
I could write a large volume upon this
subject I would say, in conclusion, that
in the last few weeks, capitalists from va-
rious parts of the country have called upo
me, and have been more tha favorably
impressed with conditions of our city, in
a sanitary way, its business outlook, as a
place of residence, and for manufacturing
purposes, and if the eitisns of Jackson-
ville will do their part, there i no ques-
tion or doubt in my mind that we will
have the one hundred thousand inaubi-
tants, and Jacksonville will be the pride
of the State and the South.

BOARD OF TRADB OOMMITTWE ARE
ACTIVELY AT WORK FOB JACK-
An enthusiastic meeting of the commit-
tee on membership of the Jacksonville
Board of Trade was held Wednesday af-
ternoon, and it is believed that the com-
mittee will succeed in adding materially to
the membership of the Board during the
This being the first meeting of the com-
mittee since the appointment of the new
committees by President Bours, an organ-
ization was perfected by the election of
Mr. J. Douglas Shaylor as chairman. Bec-
retary H. H. Richardson, who is ex-offico
secretary of all committees, acted as sec-
retary of the meeting, and made many
valuable suggestions, which met with the
approval of the committee.
Among other things, Secretary Richard-
son said that he had compiled a list of
300 business men who ought to be mem-
bers of the board but who are not. He
submitted this list to the committee, and
it was decided that the members of the
committee will call upon the business men
named and request them to file applica-
tions for membership.
Some of the members became so enthus-
iastic that immediately after adjourn-
ment they began calling upon some of.the
men named, and one committeeman re-
turned within a short time and filed with
Secretary Richardson three applications
Secretary Richardson has called a meet-
ing of the committee on docks and ship-
ping for this afternoon at 4 o'clock, and
it is hoped that there will be a full at-
tendance of the members of the ommnit-
Several matters that are of vital im-
portance to the business interests of Jack-
sonville are to be brought up at this meet-
ing. These matters are of particular Im-
portance to the wholesale merchants who
receive merchandise by the cargo. It is
hoped that a plan may be formulated
whereby something may be done to so-
cure a uniform system of piers along the
river front of the city, and also that the
first steps may be taken looking to the
enactment by the city council of a law
prescribing regulations for such structures
so as to prevent the possibility of acci-
dents from overloaded piers collapsing.
There are one or two other matters to
lay before this committee, and it is pos-
sible that the committee on docks aad
shipping may in a very short time be ree-
ognized as one of the moat important of
the board of trade ammlittes
