The Return of Prosperity,
The so-called panic, precipitated in New
York last October by the failure of a few
speculative banks, is now only a memory.
The country felt the money stringency only
because the banks began to call in loans,
held down accommodations, and built up re-
serves. There was no cause for it from a
commercial or industrial standpoint. The
country was never richer in general wealth.
Now, normal conditions have been restored.
Money is easy again, and let us hope that
there may be such legislation against stock
speculation, bank syndicating and fictitious
corporations, that such a disturbance will
not be possible again.

Encouragement of Home Industry the Effort of the Board of Trade,
The Jacksonville Board of Trade, ever
alive to the upbuilding of this city, is
about to start a campaign of education
regarding the patronizing of home indus-
Stries, something which should have been
doe long ago.
For years progressive citizens have been
trying to induce new industries to start
here ad have secured quite a number, but
may have been allowed to languish for
want of proper support of the public.
There eem to have been a lack of pa-
triotle spirit toward home manufacturers
aud a great desire on the part of certain
people to purchase goods from mail order
houses all over the country rather than
support the home merchants or manufac-
The secretary of the board of trade, Mr.
H. eRichardson, is now preparing a plan
which will doubtless go a long ways to-
ward remedying the present condition. Mr.
Richardson has prepared a list of the arti-
les manufactured in Jacksonville, which
appears below, but he realizes that this
is not by any means complete and will ap-
preciate it very much indeed if, when this
reaches the public eye and any articles
made here are omitted, that the party
making them will either call at the board
of trade and inform the secretary, or drop
a postal card to that effect, so that a com-
plete list of articles made in Jacksonville
a. be compiled.
A circular will then be sent to the man-
ufacturers of these articles asking them
to furnish information regarding the
amount of capital invested, the annual
output of goods, value of the output,
number of employes, amount of annual
payroll and whether or not the manufae-
turer is satisfied with the patronage given
Sby the eitimse of Jacksonville.
From reports thus obtained, the value
of these industries to the community will
be clearly shown and will also be shown as
'to whether or not citizens of Jacksonville
are doing their part toward the upbuild-
ing of industries. The individual reports
will be treated as confidential and when
a list of manufacturing enterprises and
their output is made public, only totals
will be given, so no manufacturer need
heitate as his private affairs will not be
It must not be overlooked that when a
citizen of this city buys an article made
in Jacksonville that he keeps the money
here and helps to pay dividends on capital
invested here. Not only this, but he is
helping to provide work and salaries for
bookkeepers, clerks, salesmen, etc., whose
families reside here.
It must also be borne in mind that when
a city gets a name for patronizing its home
products and manufacturers, that capital-
ists who are seeking for investments will
naturally go to a city of that kind.
When a complete list of goods "made
in Jacksonville" is ready, it will be pub-
lished in the press and the people in this
city will be urged to ask their merchants
whether they be grocies, dry goods men or
what not, whether they have goods "made
in Jacksonville" or handled by Jackson-
ville wholesalers or dealers.
Products to be Labeled.
The manufacturer is going to be urged
to label his products with the home label,
"made in Jacksonville," so that when
home people are distributing to the small-
er cities of the State, where there are no
such goods made, it will help to adver-
tise this city.
The same plan will also be adopted with
the wholesale trade to find out if the re-
tailers are patronizing the wholesaler, and
so on down the line, to find out whether
the citizens in general are patronizing their
home industries or having their goods come
from a foreign city by express.
The result of this investigation will
prove very interesting reading to the pub-
lic and cannot help but prove beneficial,
not only to the dealer but to the commun-
ity at large.
This is the first shot in a campaign that
will help to increase the prosperity and
Impulation of this growing city.
Below is published the list referred to
above and doubtless it will be news to
many citizens that so many goods are
made in Jacksonville.

"GeTTIN TOGKTHr" M* TINGS.
The suggestions that have been made in
these columns on several oeasions of late,
to the efet that there should be a gene-
ral "getting together" movement among
the cities of the South, as relating to their
own citizens, we are pleased to note, are
being accepted and responded to in a most
praiseworthy spirit throughout this see-
In a number of these cities public meet-
inga have been held for the avowed pur-
pose of bringing te citizens together to
omMider a revival of local pride and effort
in behalf of their respective localities, and
these meetings have been preceded by a
campaign of publicity in which the local
press have participated to such an extent
as has indeed proven gratifying and val-
uable in the hight degree.
These meetings have assumed various
forms, ome under one name and some
another, but al having the same ends and
objects in view. Little Rook, Ark., had a
"live Wire Smoker," by its "live Board
of Trade on February 26th, which covered
a very wide range of "live" subjects.
Montgomery, Ala, had a meeting on Feb-
ruary 24th in the interests of "A Greater
City" that brought oat an exceedingly
brilliant array of local talent and at which
the greatest enthusiasm was manifested.
Chattanooga had a similar meeting on
March 4th, that was simply announced
as being: "For Chattanoogs," and seldom
has there ever been gathered a larger or
more enthusiastic audience in the history
of the eity than what appeared in the Au-
ditorium on that occasion. That meeting
was heralded by all the newspapers of the
city, which gave much of their space to
the effort of reviving a greater public
spirit in behalf of all classes and inter-
ests of Chattanooga, and was held under
the auspices of the Chamber of Commerce.
Several other cities have had similar meet-
ings, while the Dallas News has been run-
ning at the head of its editorial columns
in block form and bold-faced type, a de-
partment, or special articles, headed
Thoughts on Dallas," that has dealt en-
tirely with brief facts in the interest of
that city and which have awakened very
But, as we have before stated, we can
conceive of no service that ean be render-
ed the South at this time of more value
in every way than for the business or-
ganizations and press of our respective
cities to take up a general "getting to-
gether" eamimign. The world is watching
the South as never before and never be-
fore was any people placed under a greater
limelight of publicity, wanting opportun-
ity to praise or blame as we may prove
ourselves worthy of the one or deserving
the other. By the hopes and memories
of all these years of arduous labor that
have marked the career of the South since
the lose of civil war let us not be rec-
remat now in the hour of need.-Trades-

THI DRAIN UPON THE FORESTS.
They Are Bein Cut Three Times a Fast
as They Grow.
Since 1880 the sources of lumber sup-
ply have undergone remarkable changes.
The first change was in the regions from
which the principal kinds of lumber were
procured, and this was followed by the
substitution of other kinds of wood in
their places. Neither the centers of the
lumber industry nor the leading classes of
woods are the same as they were twenty-
five years ago. In 1880 nine States--
Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, New
York, Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louis-
ian and Washington-produced 628 per
cent, or more than half of the total lum-
ber production of the United States. In
1906 these States produced 51.5 per cent,
practically the same proportion, but the
changes which have taken place in the
output of individual States are very strik-
ing. Michigan ,for instance, cut 23 per
cent of the total in 1880 and but 5.6 per
cent in 1906; Louisiana cut 0.7 per cent of
the total in 1880 and 7.5 per cent in 1906;
Washington furnished but 0.9 per cent of
the lumber production of 1880 and 11.5
per cent of that of 1906. The cutting out
of the virgin timber in the North and
East has been followed by increased drains
upon the forest resources of the South
Despite these conditions the amount of
timber required has increased year by
year. The increase in consumption of
timber since 1880 has been more rapid
than the increase of the population, and
greater than in any similar period in the
history of the country. This shows in a
striking manner how much the nation de-
pends upon forest products, and indicates
how greatly all interests must suffer as
lumber becomes scarcer and dearer.
Statistics gathered by the Bureau of the
Census and the Forest Service show that
the quantities of timber used last year
for lumber, shingles, ties, pulpwood, coop-
erage stock, mine timbers, lath, distilla-
tion, veneer, poles, tanning ,and turpen-
tine and rosin, expressed in board feet,
reach a total of approximately 50 billion
While these drains upon the forest are
known with reasonable certainty, there
are others of which there is no record.
These are the demand for posts, fuel and
domestic purposes, regarding which it is
more difficult to obtain information, be-
eause the products often pass through no
market, but are consumed on the farm
where they were produced. Careful esti-
mates, however, place the total of wood
used for fuel alone at an equivalent of
50 billion board feet a year.
It will be seen, then, that the present
consumption of wood in all forms is above
100 billion board feet annually. Estimat-
ing the forest area of the United States at
from 500 to 700 million acres, and the an-
nual growth at 60 board feet per acre,
the yearly increase is from 30 to 42 bil-
lion feet. At this rate, the annual growth
barely equals the amount consumed for
lumber alone. Considering all the drains,
the annual consumption of wood is prob-
ably three times the annual growth. De-
tailed estimates of standing timber range
from 1,400 to 2,000 billion feet. Using the
larger figure, and considering the annual
growth of 40 billion feet, it appears that
there is not more than a thirty-three
years' supply of timber in this country at
the present rate of consumption.
At present only about 22 per cent of
our total forest area is in State or Nat-
ional Forests, the remainder being unre-
served public lands or in private hands.
The forest area is amply sufficient, if
rightly managed, to produce eventually
enough timber to supply all our needs.
Yet private owners, as well as the State
and National Governments, must use their
forest lands in a right way if we are to
maintain our timber supply.
Circular 129, just issued by the Forest
Service, contains a discussion of the drains
upon the forests and the sources and the
duration of the timber supply This pub-
lication will be sent fre upon application
to the Forester, U. S. Department of Agri-
culture, Washington, D. C.

WILLIAM JAM=S BRYAN ILL.
Every person in Florida, of whatever
political faction, or faith, will regret to
learn of the critical illness of United
States Senator William J. Bryan. Young,
brilliant, ambitious, with a life full of
usefulness and promise opening up before
him, his death would be a serious blow to
his thousands of close personal friends--
a great loss to the State he represents.
.It is sincerely hoped that the distinguish-
ed young Floridian will recover.
SHIP SUBSIDY BILL PASSED.
The Industrial Recori believes in the
ship subsidy bill as a measure that will
promote commerce and aid in a greater
shipping interests for the ports of this
country. It has been called undemocratic.
It has been largely urged by Republicans
and fought by Democrats. However that
may be, we are looking at it from a stand-
point of commercialism and not party
polities. It will be a proud day for Geor-
gia and Florida when the ship subsidy
bill becomes a national law.' It is gratify-
ing, therefore, to report that the measure
passed the Senate this week.
The bill was amended in the Senate so
that twelve-knot vessels will receive $2
per mile, which is the allowance under ex-
isting law to sixteen-knot vessels. Amend-
ments were also adopted providing that if
two or more lines of steamships ply from
Atlantic ports to South America under the
provisions of the bill, one line shall stop
at two ports south of (ape (harles, and
providing further that no nmoe shall be
paid for subsidies than is received from
ship service by the government.

The Sea Island Cotton Industry; Warehouse
Plan for Jacksonville.
It is to be hoped that the Sea Island
Cotton Warehouse and Export Company,
recently temporarily organized in Jack-
sonville, with an authorized capital of
$250,000, will be successfully organized on
a permanent business basis with sufficient
capital subscribed to make it the factor
it should be in the handling and promo-
tion of this great industry. It is grati-
fying to see steps are being taken to
For some time it has been apparent to
the Sea Island growers of South Georgia
and Florida that the present method of
handling the crop was far from satisfac-
tory, and, as the date for the annual
meeting of the Sea Island Cotton Growers'
Association came near. it appeared to be
the opportune time to bring about a
change which would meet the needs of
the growers. At the Valdosta convention,
held on January 14 to 15, 1908, a commit-
tee of the Jacksonville Board of Trade
was in attendance, and, in detail, set
forth the advantages of Jacksonville as
a port through which the crop should
move. The association then adopted reso-
lutions, selecting that city as the place
of export, and a committee was appointed
to appear before the Board of Trade. and
the business men of Jacksonville, to see
what arrangements could be made toward
obtaining the long looked for results.
A special meeting of the Board of Trade
was held on January 21. 1908. at which
upward of 330 of Jacksonville's business
men were present. After the matter was
laid before the meeting in a most able
manner, by Harvie Jordan, president of
the Sea Island Cotton Growers' Associa-
tion, John \\'. Hatcher, C. F. Barber and
others, the meeting selected an organiza-
tion committee to cooperate with the
growers' committee, for the purpose of
making all the necessary arrangements
for incorporating this company. These
committees met immediately, and as a
result, this comllny has been launched.
Articles of incorporation have been signed
up by the incorporators as follows: J. A.
Cranford, It. V. (ovington, T. J. Apple-
yard, H. II. lichardson, J. H. Mclaurin.
J. M. Barrs. C. E. Garner, J. W. Hatcher,

for the majority of the stock, and let
the minority of the stock be purchased by
the business men of Jacksonville. The
establishment of this strong company will
enable the growers to store their crop up-
on the most economical basis, and to mar-
ket the crop slowly, thereby regulating the
supply of raw cotton, to meet the legiti-
mate demands of the spinners, and avoid
the present bad policy of selling a year's
supply within a short period of time.
Advantages Far Reaching.
The advantages of the company are
manifold, and its good results will be far
reaching. The equipment of first-class
warehouse facilities at convenient points
in the cotton belt, with a large central
warehouse at the port of Jacksonville
will provide ample storage facilities for
the entire Sea Island crop each year, at
a minimum cost for handling, insurance
and interest on investment. It is contem-
plated to build the export warehouse of
re-inforced concrete, so as to get the low-
est possible rate of insurance.
The plan includes negotiating loans on
warehouse receipts for the weak or dis-
tressed cotton, which otherwise might Le
formed on a bull market. We also expect
-to make direct connections with the con-
sumers, the spinners, and abolish the bad
plan of having cotton consigned to fac-
ters, to be sold on commission. The un-
satisfactory system of having the price
of cotton controlled and dictated by a
few interior buyers will also cease to ex-
ist. We also hope that this company will
result in bringing back to the grower,
the intrinsic value of his product, and the
industry become one of profit and pleas
Spot Cotton Exchange
Another of the plans is to establish at
headquarters in Jacksonville, a spot cot-
ton exchange, where samples of the cot-
ton on storage, at branch warehouses,
will be graded, so that the consumers and
buyers will be protected in their pur-
It is hoped to have everything in shape
to handle the new crop of 1908-09, by the
time it is ready to market in the fall.
The revenue of the company will be
derived from the storage charges, interest
on loans, fees for grading, handling
charges, etc., and when it is taken into
consideration that an average annual crop
of Sea Island cotton is from 80,000 to 100,-
000 bales, valued at from $8,000,000 to
10,000,000, it will be seen that the vol-
ume of business makes possible a hand-
some revenue to the company. for the
purpose of profits and dividends, making
the investment in its stock a very desir-
TO THE NAVAL STORES MEN OF
I would invite your attention to some
of the various legislation which Was intro-
duced in the Florida House of Represen-
tatives during the session of 1903. A bill
was introduced with a view of securing
revenue out of the naval stores business.
The argument was presented that by fur-
nishing certain tags or labels, as is done
in the inspection of fertilizers, a revenue
to the State could be made out of this
business. The naval stores people would
not pay it; that it would come out of
the purchasers of these supplies. This bill
was killed. I made a speech in opposition
to it. My recollection is that I am the
only one who made such a speech. There
may have been others.
There was a committee of men, engaged
in the naval stores business, at Tallahas-
see during the session of the legislature.
Owing to my record, being friendly to
their interests, I was requested to intro-
duce and take charge of the following
bill: "House Bill No. 547, a Bill to be
entitled an Act to Prevent and Prohibit
the Adulteration of Spirits of Turpentine
and Naval Stores, etc."
I do not take any credit for simply
doing my duty. I think, however, it
might be well for some of you gentlemen
to know who has been your friend in the
legislature. As you know, I am a can-
didate for Governor of Florida. Any as-
sistance you can give me will be highly
appreciated. I have the honor of being,
Very respectfully yours,
