Leaders of the Shotter Combine Again Indicted For
Combining to Restrain and Monopolize the Naval
Stores Trade, and the Industry.
Read the indings of the Grand Jury and Recall Some of the Charges Made From Time to Time in the Indusrial Record.
The federal grand jury at Savannah re-
turne indictments late Saturday eight
agait te la f the of entire Shotter
camrin% including Shotter, Nash and
Myew--the -"ig three"--ad all of the de-
fedants, of which Carl Meller, the mana-
ger of the Jacksonville branch, is one, have
been pced under o bonds each.
Some weeks ago it was stated in the
Record that a federal grand jury in Sa-
vannah would soon be called upon to in-
vestigate the Shotter combine to ascer-
tain whether or not the American Naval
Stores Co., and allied corporations, were
violating the Sherman anti-trust law.
It will be recalled that it was not so
many months ago that one S. P. Shotter,
together with a number of other of his
immediate business associates, were fined
heavily by Judge Emory Speer, of Geor-
gia, for a violation of the same law. Now
it is alleged the same old crowd is back
at its same old tricks.
A large number of witnesses from Flor-
ida and Georgia points and from New York
and other selling points, were summoned
to Savannah and the hearing before the
grand jury began Thursday. From ques-
tions asked the grand jurors to test their
qualifications it was made to appear that
the operations of the American Naval
Stores Company, the Atlantic Naval
Stores Company, the Peninsular Naval
Stores Company, the Patterson-Downing
Company, and the Downing Company will
be under fire. The jurors were asked spee-
ially whether they are employed by or re-
lated to Messrs. Spencer P. Shotter, J. F.
Cooper Myers or E. S. Nash.
Judge Shepard, of Florida, who presided
in the absence of Judge peer, delivered
the charge. The judge didn't enter into a
discussion of the turpentine industry par-
ticularly, but gave in the charge in gen-
eral terms the Sherman law relating to-
combinations in restraint of interstate
commerce. The court room was crowded
Sand the charge was listened to with great
In his charge to the jury Judge Shep-
"You have been called together at the
instance of the United States attorney to
investigate such matters as may be
brought to your attention by that officer.
All offenses against the United States,
which may be punished infamously, must
be begun and investigated by your body,
and your power in this respect is unlimit-
"Courts of the United States have no
common law jurisdiction, therefore your
inquiries must be directed only to such
offenses as have been created by act of
Congress. There are many and various
statutory offenses, and I assume that dur-
ing your deliberations at this term you
will have only to deal with that offense
denounced by Congress as unlawful com-
binations in restraint of interstate com-
"Modern development of the resources
of the country and the consequent combi-
nation of capital and investment make
necessary the protection of the public
from monopoly and combinations, which
affect commerce between the States and
foreign nations. Therefore Congress has
enacted what is known as the 'Sherman
act,' or anti-trust law, three sections of
which I quote:
Retraint of Trade.
"'Section 1. Every contract, combina-
tion in the form of trust or otherwise, or
conspiracy, in restraint of trade or com-
merce among the several States, or with
foreign nations, is hereby declared to be
illegal. Every person who shall make such
combination or conspiracy shall be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor.
"'Section 2. Every person who shall
monopolize, or attempt to monopolize, or
combine or conspire with any other per-
son or persons, to monopolize, any part of
the trade or commerce among the several
States, or with foreign nations, shall be
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor.
'Section 3. The several Circuit Courts
of the United States are hereby invested
with jurisdiction tS prevent and restrain
violations of this act.'
"Monopoly in the prohibited sense in-
volves the element of exclusive privilege
or claim which restrains others from the
exercise of the right or liberty, which they
had before the monopoly existed. In com-
mercial law it is said to be the abuse of
free commerce, by which one or more in-
dividuals obtain the advantage of selling,
alone, or exclusively, all of a certain kind
of merchandise or commodity to the det-
riment of the public.
What Monopoly Means.
"It will be observed that by an analy-
sis of the term monopoly, there are found
two elements, vis.: an exclusive right or
privilege on the one side, and a restric-
tion or restraint on the other, which will
operate to prevent the free exercise of a
right or liberty open to the public before
the monopoly was secured. This I think
is the general meaning of the term as im-
plied in the second section, which reads:
'An attempt to monopolize any part of the
trade or commerce among the States,' and
must be an attempt to secure or acquire
an exclusive right in such trade which pre-
vents others from engaging in such trade.
"A monopoly which would be a violation
of section 2 of the Sherman anti-trust aet
could be said to exist when one or more
persons or companies, by any means other
than fair and legitimate competition, se-
cure control of a substantial part of the
trade between the several States and for-
eign nations in any particular articles of
commerce, such as turpentine and rosin,
commonly called naval stores. It need
not be a complete monopoly, so long as
their methods have a natural tendency to
drive out legitimate competition and se-
cure a substantial combination and con-
trol of such commerce.
"Such monopoly might be secrd by
one person or company or by several per-
sons or companies acting jointly in com-
bination or conspiracy with each other, in
divers ways, such as manipulation of mar-
ket quotations by fictitious sales or pur-
chases; by secret contracts or agreements
with supposed competitors not to bid
against each other for the purchase or
sale of such commodity; by the division
of territory for purchase or sale of msuh
commodity between the parties of such
combination; by overbidding for the pur-
chase and underbidding for the sale of
such commodities against their competi-
tors at ruinous prices; by false grade aad
gauges of such commodities-if all or any
of such methods are adopted for the pur-
pose of driving competitors out of such
business and thereby securing for them-
selves a more complete control of such
A Conspiracy De ned.
"This offense, which I have previously
defined within the purview of the Sherman
act is committed generally by a conspiracy.
A conspiracy as an offense against the
United States defined and denounced by
section 5440 of the Revised Statutes, is
committed when two or more persons agree
together to commit any offense against
the United States, and one or more of
such persons to the agreement do any act
to carry out the object to the agreement
or conspiracy. Therefore, if you in your
investigation should find that there has
been a conspiracy to violate the provis-
ions of the statute I have just read to
you, and in your judgment the testimony,
which may be presented before you, unsx-
plained and uncontradicted, would warrant
a conviction for such offense, it would be
your duty to return a true bill.
"It is not the province of a grand jury
to hear both sides of a case. It is essen-
tially a secret investigation. The accused
is not put on trial until there is an in-
dictment, when he is arraigned in the
court, he is to be heard by himself, his
counsel and witnesses. What evidence or
kind of evidence would warrant an indict-
ment, you must be the judges. Evidence
before you is not to be judged by its vol-
ume, but rather by its signliane, it an-
not be measured, counted or weighed in
any sense of the words. The only stand-
ard for measuring or weighing evidence is
by its effect upon the belief and conmsiene
of fair and impartial men, trying to amser-
tain the truth.
Should Scrutinaia Testimony.
"The grand jury in all case should saru-
tinize the testimony before them, and
should be satisfied before bringing in an
indictment that the evidence before them
and the testimony adduced, meostradieted
and unexplained, would warrant a ptt
jury in finding the party charged guilty
of the offense
"Any other sort of investigation or iad-
ing might subject innoent prseams to
grave injustice and hardship for which
there is no reparation.
"Exercising the right of scrutiny over
the proceedings of your body, you may
look to the motives, the bis, aad preju-
dice of witnesses called before you, no
good citizen should be subjected to the
vindictiveness of his enemies in the grad
jury room. On the other hand, let your
investigation be fearless and untrammeled.
You should inquire into the conduct of in-
dividuals should they be charged with la-
fractions of the law, no matter who or
what they may be. The law is intended
for all, ad as long as it is fearlessly and
impartially enforeed against the rich and
strong, as well as agaiat the poor and
weak, just so long the people will have
confidence in the administration of justice
and respect the courts.
"I am sure you understand aad appre-
eiate fully the responsibilities imposed by
your oath, they are co-ordinte with those
of this court, we hae the one purpose and
desire to do our duty as we see it. We
may risk with eonfidenee the consequences
of duty well and impartially done"
The examination of witnesses continued
through Friday and Saturday, the grand
jury going carefully and determinedly into
the entire situation.
Late Saturday afternoon, a result of
its investigations, an indictment on three
counts was returned by the United States
grand jury against the interests that have
been charged with effecting and meatain-
ing a combination in restraint of the ma-
val stores business of the country.
Made defendants under this indictment
are the Americae Naval Stores Oempany,
the National Transportation and Terminal
Company, 8. P. Shotter as chairman of the
board of directors of the American Naval
Stores Company, Bdmund BS Nash as Ht
president, J. F. Cooper Myers as its vice-

its report to the court, Judge William B.
Sheppard, presiding, four of the defend-
ants, who were in Savannah, were arrest-
Bond was fixed at $5.000 each, and this
was promptly furnished, and the men re-
leased from custody.
What Is Charged.
The defendants, as named above, are in-
dicted jointly. The three counts in the in-
dictment are as follows:
The first count charges the defendants
with combining and conspiring in restraint
of trade in naval stores.
The second count charges them with
combining to monopolize the naval stores
The third count charges them with mo-
nopolizing and attempting to monopolize
the naval stores industry.
The indictments, with its three counts.
is brought under sections one and two of
the Sherman anti-trust law.
The indictment, after setting up the
three charges as given above, alleges that
these purposes were accomplished by:
"Centreltag, manipulating and arbitra-
rily bidding down and depressing the mar-
ket price of spirits turpentine and rosin,
- that competitors and producers could
nt sell said artices of commerce except
at ruinous prices"
It is further alleged that these things
were done, in part, by "Coercing and
causing naval stores receipts, which nor-
mally and naturally flow to one port of the
United States, to be diverted to another
port of the United States.
"By purchasing thereafter at divers
times a large part of its supplies at naval
stores ports known as closed ports, and
wilfully and with deliberate intent and
purpose of depressing the market, refrain-
ing from purchasing any appreciable part
of its supplies of naval stores on the Sa-
vannah market, where its purchases, if
made, would tend to strengthen price and
the market therefore, the said Savannah
market being the basis or primary market
in the United States for naval stores, the
defendants taki the receipts at the
desed perts of Pensacola, Tampa, Fernan-
dina, Gulfport and Mobile on a basis of the
market at Savannah.
By coercing factors and brokers into
entering into contracts with the defend-
ants fr the storage and purchase of their
receipts, ad refusing to purchase from
such factors and brokers unless such con-
tracts were entered into.
"By circulating and publishing false
statements as to naval stores production
and stocks in hands of producers and their
"By issuing and causing to be circulated,
ad hypothecating fraudulent warehouse
"By fraudulently grading, regrading and
raising grades of rsins, and falsely gag-
ing spirit of turpentine.
Attempting to Bribe.
"By attempting to bribe employes of
competitors and factors so as to obtain in-
formation as to competitors' business and
"By inducing consumers by payment of
bonuses, and aby threats of boycott, to
postpone dates of delivery of contract sup-
plies, thus enabling the defendants to re-
frain frm purchasing such supplies, which
purchases would ted, if made, to strength-
en the market and prices.
."By making tentative offers of large
quantities of naval stores, under prevail-
ing markets, intending then and there to
accept only contracts for small quantities
and to cover these sales by subsequent
purchases to be made on a market thus de-
presed by the aforesaid fraudulent offers.
"By at divers times selling spirits of
turpetine and rosin at prices far below
tho actual cost themselves, so as to cem-

The Former Indictment.
Ever since the present investigation be-

many as to the former indictments, and
when the present indictment was returned,
many interested in the battle that has now
begun in earnest have asked which of the
defendants indicted this time were made
defendants under the old indictment.
The former indictment was returned by
a grand jury in Judge Speer's court on
February 11, 1907. Those who are de-
fendants in the present case and who were
also defendants in that case, are as fol-
8. P. Shotter, chairman of the board of
directors of the American Naval Stores
Company, and at that time president of
the S. P. Shotter Company.
J. F. Cooper Myers, vice president of the
American Naval Stores Company, and

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
might be well or some of you gentlemen
to know who has been your friend in the
legislature. As you know, I am a can-

appreciated. I have the honor of being,

to the State could be made out of this

not pay it; tlat it would come out of

GROWING LAND VALUES THROUGH-
A prominent New York financier figures
that the greatest increase in population
in the next decade will likely take place
in New York City and the lake cities,
especially Chicago, Cleveland, Toledo and
Duluth. Buffalo's small banking capital
and proximity to New York are adverse
factors in her development.
Chicago and New York will gain in
population at about the same percentages
as in the past, but not in manufacturing,
which is already beginning to seek loca-
tions with lower land values and less
complex conditions of living.
Seattle and Los Angeles will both give
San Francisco a hard chase for the Pa-
cific supremacy, though the land-locked
harbor of San Francisco gives her a nat-
ural advantage difficult to overcome.
The depression in Pittsburg will be
short lived, though it is severe, but her
tremendous manufacturing interests and
the peculiarly skilled character of her la-
bor will always keep her in the front of
the iron and steel manufacturing cities of
St. Louis is slow and conservative, with
a large German population. Her land
values will be held up to a price level un-
attractive to most investors.
Milwaukee is another German city, much
of the style of St. Louis, and her charac-
teristics in growth and opportunities for
real estate investment are very similar.
Cincinnati might be mentioned as another
city of this type, but with the disadvan-
tage of being rapidly left in the race by
her dependence upon the uncertain trans-
portation of the Ohio river. The develop-

increasing productive power, whether
measured in rents or in products of the
soil, have given it a high place in the con-
fidence of mankind. It is today almost
alone in its freedom from confiscatory at-
tacks through national or State legisla-
tion, and its diversified ownership guaran-
tees its future immunity.
"In England, Germany and France real
estate sells on a two to two-and-a-half
per cent income basis, although the best
type of municipal and State securities
brings fairly nearly equal prices in Ameri-
ca and abroad. This indicates that we in
the United States have not been educated
to a full comprehension of real estate as
an investment. The time is coming when
land in this country will sell on the same
income producing basis as abroad. This
alone means an inem se ot more than one
hundred per cent in the average piece of
property. We are inclining more strongly
each month to the conviction that this
rise will take place within the next cycle
"We believe the conditions point to a
wide real estate movement which will
make for many years to come large
profits for all reasonably careful investors,
and which will in the end lead to a specu-
lation in real estate that will carry it
beyond the level of reason and in all like-
lihood be a large factor in the precipita-
tion of the next panic. The signs point
strongly in this direction. Something may
intervene to divert public confidence.
Some one has said the inevitable rarely
happens,' but certainly no form of invest-
ment today will stand an analysis like
real estate for present strength and fu-
and 18 years.
"There is another way of looking at the
question: The two leading kinds of lum-
ber on the market now are Southern yel-
low pine and Douglas fir. The cut of yel-
low pine is nearly one-third of the total
lumber cut, and is nearly, if not quite, at
its maximum. Our minimum and maxi-
mum estimates of yellow pine stumpage
are 130 and 300 billion feet. The present
rate of cutting will exhaust the supply in
about 10 years in the first case and in 25
years in the second case, neglecting annual
growth. As it is probable, however, that
the cut will more than double within a
few years, the outlook is that there will
be comparatively little Douglas fir left in
from 25 to 30 years. The case of Douglas
fir now is closely parallel to that of white
pine in the Lake States 30 years ago, and
there is much reason for believing that
the supply of fir, outside of the National
Forests, 30 years hence, will be as limited
as that of white pine now.
"At present only about 22 per cent of
our total forest area is in State or Nat-
ional Forests, assuming a forest area of
700,000,000 acres, the remainder being on
unreserved public lands or in private
hands. The forest area of the United
States is amply sufficient, if rightly man-
aged, to produce eventually enough tim-
ber 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

but now many large corporations in oth-

offered by the banks of the new State
and are making propositions to deposit
large sums. Most of the bankers are fight-

WOOD PL8UERVATION AND THE PRO-
CE88 OF PRODUCING CREOSOTE OIL.
One of the significant signs of the times
is the awakening of the American people
to the dangerous destruction of their for-
est wealth, and the necessity of a wise use
of what remains of it. Undoubtedly, in
the future the nation must utilize its for-
est crop less wastefully, both in the
woods and in the mill, and must make pro-
vision for future crops; but that is not
the only way to prolong the timber sup-
ply. If the service of the wood which is
used can be lengthened, it will largely de-
crease the amount of timber which must
be cut. And this can be done, by treating
the wood with chemicals which will poison
the low forms of plant life which attack
it and cause it to decay. The growth of
timber is slow, and when the dearth of
it becomes pressing, a new crop cannot be
grown quickly enough to prevent a time of
severe shortage. Preservative treatment
of timber has the advantage, as a remedy,
that it can be applied immediately. Its
importance is therefore attracting increas-
Many chemicals have been used for the
preservation of timber, among them being
blue vitriol, corrosive sublimate and chlo-
ride of zinc. The most effective preserva-
tive is the substance called "creosote oil,"
or "creosote." On account of the similar-
ity of the names, many people suppose
this to be the creosote obtained from wood,
such as can be obtained, refined for me-
dicinal purposes, at the drug stores. But
the two are quite different, and should not
be confused. The creosote used in wood
preservation is obtained from coal, by a
most interesting process.
Nearly every city now uses gas for light
and fuel, and many people know that this
illuminating gas is often made from coal.
But the many things besides gas which
are obtained in this process are not so
well known. It is one of these other
products from which is obtained the cre-
osote oil used for wood preservation.
To understand how all these things are
produced, it is necessary to know some-
thing which the chemists can tell us.
Coal, they say, is composed partly of the
substance called carbon, partly of com-
pounds of this carbon with the gas hydro-
gen, which they have named "hydrocar-
bons." When the coal is heated sufficient-
ly, away from air, the hydrocarbons are
driven off in the form of gas. Illuminat-
ing gas is made by subjecting coal of the
proper kind to this process, which is
known as "dry distillation." The coal is
put into a long, fire-clay oven, or "retort,"
shaped much like a giant model of the lit
tie cakes which the bakers call "lady
fingers," the retorts being about thirteen
feet long, two feet wide and sixteen inches
deep. A number of these retorts are built
side by side, in three rows, one above the
other, the ends of the retorts being sup-
ported in a brick wall which also extends
around the ends of the rows and over the
top, and thus entirely encloses the retorts.
Fire, from furnaces below, is carried by
blues into this enclosure, so that the retorts
are entirely enveloped in flames and can be
heated to a very high temperature.
The retorts are partly filled with noal,
after which they are sealed, so that no
air can get into them. They are then
heated to a temperature of aboue 2,100 de-
grees, Fahrenheit. Under this intense
heat almost all the hydrocarbons of the
coal pass off, leaving behind only the
"fixed" carbon, which comes out of the
retort as coke. Many of the lighter com-
pounds distilled off by the heat will now
remain in the form of gas when they are
cooled to ordinary temperatures, and it
is some of these which make the gas final-
ly used for lighting and fuel. But as it
comes from the retorts, the gas is like a
thick, yellowish-green smoke, and could
not be used at all for such purposes. This
gas escapes from the retorts into a series
of large and costly machines where the
lighting gas is cleansed from its impuri-
ties, and the different by-products are sep-
arated from each other. First are great
"condensers," in which the gases are cool-
ed. The cooling condenses the heavier
compounds into thick liquids, which are
then left behind.
One of the substances later removed
from the gas is ammonia. and from such
gas works comes the ammonia water which
is used in every household. Another im-
portant product of the gas making process
is the coke which is left in the retort.
Every year an increasing number of people
use this coke for burning in kitchen stoves,
and even in furnaces, instead of coal, for
it makes a very hot fire and burns with-
out any smoke.
The heavy, strong smelling, black liquid
which is collected in the cooling of the gas
is what we know as coal tar. This is an
exceedingly complex mixture of substances.
From it are obtained not only creosote oil,
but most of the dyes which are used now-
a-days, perfumes, and even favoring ex-
Gas, coal tar and coke are also made in
what is known as the by-product coke
oven. which is adapted to different ob-
jects, but is operated on the same princi-
ple. Its coal tar is equally as good as the
gas works tar for making creosote oil.
In recent years a great amount of gas
has been made in the United States by an-
other process, and is known as water gas.
This process also produces a tar, which
looks much like coal tar and is often diffi-
cult to tell from it. But this tar is really
derived from petroleum, and does not
make make a good oil for preserving
wood from decay. Wood creosote, with
which so many people are familiar, is
likewise obtained from a wood tar which
is produced by distilling wood. But like
water gas tar creosote, wood creosote is
not so good for wood preservation as is
the coal tar creosote. When creosote is
bought for that purpose, therefore, it
should be certain that it is coal tar creo-

tar is, in its turn, distilled. But this dis-
tillation is like that used for other liquids
instead of that employed for the coal.
The still is heated, and as the heat in-
creases the "light oils" first pass over.
Among these is the familiar carbolic acid.
This is a powerful antiseptic, but is not
desirable in a wood preservative, for it
evaporates so readily that it soon becomes
lost from the wood. When a temperature
of about 400 degrees has been reached, the
distillate is turned into another receiver,
and from this point on to 600 or 700 de-
grees creosote oil is produced. One of
the substances which is contained in this
mixture is "napthalene," from which com-
mon moth-balls are made. Coal tar creo-
sote, thus produced, is the great wood
The residue remaining in the still after
distillation is "pitch," which is used
chiefly in the preparation of roofing felt.
In America roofing pitch is the chief end
for which tar is distilled. In Europe this
is not so true. Now pitch for roofing
must be rather soft. Therefore tar distil-
lation is not carried so far in this country
as it is in Europe. For creosote oil it
would be better if it were carried farther,
since the substances which distil at the
higher temperatures, in most cases neither
evaporate in the air nor dissolve in water
as readily as those which distil more eas-
ily. Consequently they stay in the wood
for a longer time, and protect it eorres-
pondingly longer from decay. Much study
is being devoted by the United States For-
est Service to creosote oil, to determine
what its composition should be to give the
best results in preserving timber, under
different conditions, and how the most
desirable creosotes may be obtained. The
reports of these studies, together with
detailed description of the more eeonomi-
cal processes of applying the preservatives
to wood have been worked into eirculars
which the government has placed at the
disposal of all users of timber and which
will be furnished to all who make the re-
quest of the Forester at Washington.
