A UNITED FIGHT,
In this issue of the Record is a strong
vigorous article relative to the manipulation
of the naval stores market by the American
Naval Stores Co. and its allies. It is up to the
factors and the producers to stand shoulder
to shoulder in fighting the unfair methods
of this "manipulator of markets." The Amer-
ican Naval Stores Company will continue its
nefarious game as log as the factors and pro-
ducers continue to aid them. Is it not time
to call a hall?

Reflections on Present Naval Stores
In comparing last year's prices of rosin
and spirits turpentine with those quoted
at the present market, one will certainly
wobder what causes have brought about
Ste enormous change. it may be said, that
it it partly due to natural conditions; for
isthime, it is a recognized fact, that the
receipts during the past two months
have been considerably greater than those
of last year at the same period, owing to
this year's very early season. Further-
more it seems, that a general depression,
which is apparently expected for the pres-
ilestial year, is inluencing the naval
stores trade too, and all the other branches
of business which are more or less closely
united with it.
We learn, that the influence of this de-
presion is even far reaching enough to
still affect the foreign markets, although
the crisis of last fall might be considered
Seve by this time. It is stated, however,
that after an extraordinary boom the
building trade in Germany, for instance, is
practically at a standstill and that there
are reported more failures of builders and
contractors and forced sales of half fin-
ished buildings than ever before. This
mat have, naturally, some influence on
the demand for spirits turpentine, because,
if dealers in this article do not find an im-
mediate outlet for the product, with var-
aish and color manufacturers, etc., they
will only buy what they need for most
urgent requirements and will refrain from
laying in great stocks of turpentine.
Money is still very scarce and hard to get,
which makes buyers additionally careful
and circumspect in their operations.
These conditions may well prevail and
if they do, we understand, that they will
bear on the whole situation. What we
fal to see, however, is, why those circum-
atanees should have caused a falling off
In prices, since last year, of more than
d a barrel for common grades rosin and
from $5 to $10 per barrel for spirits tur-
Thee must be other reasons and those,
who have followed the market move-
marts only a little, will agree with us, that
te present conditions are to be attributed
to the schemes of the American Naval
Company and its allied interests.
the first place it is universally ad-
mitted that the American Naval Stores
Omapany has the power to manipulate the
market and, it has been charged that they
will use this power for their own advan-
tage. They are shipping today thousands
of barrels of rosin and spirits turpentine,
whish may have been contracted in Janu-
ary and February at a moment when the
market was forced up by them to a high-
er level, so that the present deliveries, at
a muek lower market basis, must neces-
sarily allow them big profits. It must not
be foqotten either, that the American
Noval stores Company has used and is
in the market as a weapon against fac-
t- ar poducers on account of the fact,
that there was an amount of spirits tur-
pentine tanked away from their reach.
That move, taken by the producing end
in self-protection, caused the war, a con-
test between honest working producers
and factors add those interests which, it
has beed alleged, are dot afraid to empAty
any possible trick aid scheme to win ouit
in the contest; The American could not
have found other meais to fight the pro-
ducers but a continued bear movement and
their fight is an easy one, when one con-
siders, that even the present state of the
markets allows the American to work
with profits, although the latter seem to
be gained with methods which no other
concern would think of employing, be-
cause they are unworthy of a concern,
built up on the principle of equity and
truth. Does not the indictment, which
now faces the American Naval Stores
Company, plainly state, that they are in
the habit of horning rosin and missgaug-
ing spirits turpentine-and what do the
enormous spreads between the grades "G"
and "H" "H" and "I" and "K" signity
The truth of the indictment, of course,
remains to be proven in court, and thus
anyone can understand, that the Ameri-
can Naval Stores Company can continue
the fight until the law actually steps in,
and further, that they do not care and do
not need to advance the present market,
for their own, immediate benefit.
If one stops to consider this feature
more closely, one must wonder why and
how it is, that factors and producers con-
tinue to deal with the American Naval
Stores Company and in fact aid them, in-
directly of course, in their nefarious prac-
tices. Do they still consider them invinci-
ble and is it fear which binds the ties be-
tween them? It certainly looks that way,
because one cannot well imagine that it is
a pleasure for either to see the products of
their toil fall into yon hands.
That the consumers praise the American
as a benefactor can be easily understood,
because they know that they have to
thank the A. N. St. Co. for the present low
prices; and the fact, that last year and the
year before they were caught mercilessly
in the traps of the American with sales
for forward delivery-a lot, which might
befall them again as soon as in pleases
Mr. Shotter to have it happen-cuts little
figure with the consumer now, while he
gets the products at so extraordinary low
It has always been an object of won-
der to us that the Consumers continue do-
ing business with the American Naval
Stores Company. They have all been warn-
ed of the practices of this concern and
the character of Mr. Shotter, himself, is
known to the greater part of them. A con-
sumer would boycott at nese, in his pri-
vate life, a dealer whose reputation was

Many other very important considera-
tions were included in these experiments,
such as the effect of low cutting on the
yield and character of the rods and on the
vitality of the stools themselves. A care-
ful study was made of the proportion of
the wood to bark and of the comparative
weight of the peeled and drier rods for
each variety Special investigation was
made with reference to the utilization of
willow bark obtained from peeling the
rods. It has been shown that the bark
of most varieties contains sufficiently
large quantities of tannin to make them
useful to tanners, and it is hoped by
those concerned in making these investi-
gations that this enormous waste may be
turned to economic use whereby growers
may realize additional revenue from the
sale of bark.
The results of these and other experi-
ments will be published by the Forest
Service for the beneft of those interested

Theo. G. Eger Heads New Line to Be
Established from New York to

ship line direct to New York, and Mr.
Theodore G. Eger is to be at the head
of the new company.
This announcement will give general

is well known to a large number of Flor-
idians and he has their confidence and
esteem. The announcement that he is to

For some little time it has been known
that negotiations were on foot with the
object in view of establishing a direct
steamship line between this port and New
York. The first public announcement,
Journal of Commerce of Tuesday, May
19, and was as follows:
"From statements made in usually wel
informed quarters, it appears that a new
steamship company is in the process of
formation to carry on a passenger and
freight service between New York and
various Southern ports. John W. Gates
and other capitalists of prominence are
said to be behind the venture. The new
company which, it is reported is to have
for its head Theodore G. Eger, former
general manager and vice president of
the Clyde Steamship Company, has been
so far advanced in its organization as to
have acquired several piers in the North
river and to have let the contracts ror
the construction of a number of its ves-
"According to a story told on Saturday,
the piers secured by the company are the
old piers No. 27 and No. 28 in the North
river, which are to be converted into a
single great pier fully seventy feet in
"Those who claim to be familiar with
the facts in the case state that it is noe
intention of the company to have an
equipment of six modern vessels, three of
which will be operated direct to New Or-
leans, weekly, and the others semi-
weekly to Charleston, S. C., and Jackson-
ville, Fla. Mr. Eger, who is to be the
president of the company, is at present in
Europe, where he is said to be engaged in
perfecting further details in connection
with the organization of the company.
"According to the congressional stat-
utes, the six vessels will have to be built
in this country, to carry on a coastwise
service, and it is suggested that it will
probably be the better part of a year be-
fore they are completed and ready for op-
"Arrangements which have been per-
fected by the new company, it is reported,
also include the establishment of connec-
tions with practically all of the conti-
nental railroads, with the exception of
the Southern Pacific railroad.
"With the exception that the Clyde
Line, which has been dominated by Chas.
W. Morse financially, does not operate its
boats to New Orleans, the other points
reached by its service are practically iden-
tical with those that the new line will
serve. The Clyde company also operates
a direct water route line betwew- "'w
York city and Boston, and the main
points in the South to which its vessels
are operated include both Charleston, S.

ed the market for so long time with Mr.
The consumers may continue their deal-
ings with the American, perhaps owing to
a certain negligence which prevets them
from divulging the true facts concerning
the American Naval Store wmpany, but
the producers and fators together should
find means to get rid of the iron ist upon
them. Not only are they the most inter-
ested in a definite defeat of the Ameri-
can, but, we might say, they themselves
must accept a part of the blame for the
condition of things, which would not be
what they are, had the producing end
opposed the American more vigorously
ever since they found themselves oppress-
ed. But if the producing end of the indus-
try continues to believe the American in-
vincible and bows down to them in silent
anger, conditions will not change, unless
perhaps, the government big stick shall do
for them what should have been done be-
fore by those most interested.
We understand, that it is a very seri-
ous undertaking to disregard the Ameri-
can Naval Stores Company as a factor in
the trade. A single man can hardly suc-
ceed, but with united efforts of every
man, who has the welfare of the industry
at heart, much, in fact, everything can be
accomplished. Let factors and producers
pull on one string only, let them not sell
their products to the American unless they
pay such prices, which will allow produc-
tion at least on a paying basis and the re-
sult will be attained. It will need
money and more money, but the united ef-
forts will be strong and powerful and if
every man does his duty, reduces expenses
of production to a minimum in order to
avoid any unnecessary expenses, and joins
the general uprising against the tyranny
of the American, success will finally come.

ble rivers flowing through broad expanses
of meadows; rich alluvial prairies; great
plains covered with countless herds of
buffalo and antelope; mountains filled
with minerals; and everywhere oppor-
tunities richer than any nation had ever
found elsewhere before.
They entered into this vast pomession
and began to use it. They did not neen
to think much about how they used their
coal, or oil, or timber, or water-they
would last-and they began to encroach
on the supply with freedom and in con-
tdense that there would always be plenty.
'Te only word with which they described
what they had, when they talked about it,
was the word "inexhaustible."
Let us see for a moment what the course
of development of this young nation was.
First of all they needed men and women
to settle on the land and bring up chil-
dren and have a stake in the country.
That was absolutely necessary before
they could develop the great nation which
some of them saw ahead. As the popula-
tion spread there arose a need that great
systems of transportation should be built
to knit the country together and provide
for the interhange of its products. These
rairads called for Iron, coal, and timber
ia great quantities. Then began an un-
preedented demand upon the forests
They could not build those transconti-
nental railroad lines without millions upon
millions of ties cut from the forests of the
country; and they could not mine the iron
and coal except as the forests gave them
the mans of timbering theih mines, trans.
porting the ore, and disposing of the fn-
Sished product. The whole civilization
which they built up was conditioned on
nothing like our wealth, nothing like the
average happiness of our people can be
found elsewhere; and the fundamental
reason for this is, on the one mue, cne
vast natural resources which we nad at
hand, and on the other side the character,
ability, and power of our people.
Now what have we done with these re-
sources which have made us great, and
what is the present condition in which
this marvelously vigorous nation of ours
finds itself? The keynote of our times is
"development." Every man from New
ork to San Francisco looks to the devel-
opment of the natural resources to pro-
duce the advantages and the opportuni-
ties he wants for his neighbors and his
friends. Anyone who questions the wis-
dom of any of the methods we are using
in bringing that development to pass, be-
cause he believes we are making mistakes
that will be expensive later on, is in dan-
ger of being considered an enemy to pros-
perity. He is in danger of having it
thought of him that he does not take
pride in our great achievements, that he
is not a very good American. But in
reality it is no sign that a man lacks
pride in the United States and the wonder-
ful things our people have done in devel-
oping this great country because he wants
to see the development go on indefinitely.
On the contrary, real patriotism and pride
in our country make it the first of all
duties to see that our nation shall con-
tinue to prosper. In sober truth, we
have brought ourselves into a condition in
which the vehy serious diminution of
some of our most necessary resources is
What We Face.

iron, coal, and timber. As they developed u v uo VILI ** J -
their continent, iecher than any other, ered with what were, all in all, the most
from the east coast to the west, new re- magnificent forests of the globe-a million
sources became revealed to them, new in-
terests took possession of them, and they
used the old resources in new ways. In
East, the rivers meant to them only
means of transportation; in the West they
began to see that the river meant first of
all crops; that they must put the rivers
on the land by irrigation before they could
grow wheat, alfalfa, fruits, sugar beets,
and other crops that make the West rich.
They found that to feed the Vast popula-
tion which had grown up in the East they
must have the vast ranges of the West to
grow mest. They found that the resources
of soil and water which produced the
wheat, the cotton, and the meat-of iron
aad coal, and of timber, together made
up the working capital of a great nation,
and that the nation could not grow unless
it had all of these things. In taking po-
session of them our nation used them with
square miles of timberland. In the short
time, as time counts in the life of nations,
we have been here we have all but reached
the end of these forests. We thought it
unimportant until lately that we have
been destroying by fire as much timber as
we have used. But we have now reached
the point where the growth of our for-
ests is but one-third of the annual cut,
while we have in store timber enough for
only twenty or thirty years at our present
rate of use. This wonderful development,
which would have been impossible without
the cutting of the forests, has brought us
where we really face their exhaustion
within the present generation. And we
use five or six times as much timber per
capital as the European nations. A tim-
ber famine will touch every man, woman
and child in all the land; it will affect
the daily life of every one of us; and
greater effectiveness, greater energy and yet without consideration, without fore-
enterprise, than any other nation had ever cast, and without foresight, we have
shown before. Nothing like our growth, placed ourselves, not deliberately but

her famine is one of the inevitable events
of our near future.
Canada can not supply us, for sue wil
seed her timber herself. Siberia can not
' pply us, for the timber is too far from
water transportation. South America
a net supply us, because the timbers of
that vast continent are of a different
character from those we use and ill
adapted to our need. We must suffer be-
euse we have carelessly wasted the for-
et, this great fundamental condition of
seeses. It is impossible to repair the
damage in time to escape suffering, al-
though not too late to work hard to re-
duce it as much as we can.
Mineral, aei ,a natural gas.-But
forests only begin the story of our im-
paired capital Our anthracite coals are
ail to be in danger of exhaustion in fifty
years. and our bituminous coals in the
beginaltg of the next century; some of
our older oil Selds are already exanusz-
ed; the natural gas has been wasted, burn-
ing n~ht end day in many towns until
the supply has failed. Our iron aeposets
grew tes each year. Our rages in the
West, from which we first drove the buffa-
lo to cover them again with cattle and
shbp, are capable of supporting but one-
half what they could under intelligent
managemat, and the price of beef it
raised assordingly. Nearly every one of
our wonderful resources we have used
without reasonable foresight or reasonable
are, and as each becomes exhausted a
heavier burden of hardship will be laid
upon us as a people.
Now what is our remedy? The remedy
is the perfectly simple one of common
sense applied to national affairs as com-
man snsen is applied to personal affairs.
This i o abtruse or difficult question.
We have hitherto as a nation taken the
Ss e enorse as did at frst tph young man
who eams into possession of his new prop-
tty. It is time for a ebange.
It is tru that some natural resources
raVw t$haelves while others do not. Our
iuinm) resources e gone are gone for-
eer. It Xay appear, therefore, at first
tbhgt that eomervation does not apply
to them shes they can be used only once.
But this Is for from being me tact.
Methods of coal mining, for instance, have
beew permitted in this country which take
out a the average but half of the coal.
Then in a short tim the roof sinks in on
Athe other half, which thereafter can never
bl mined. Oil and natural gas also have
been a are being exploited with great
steo sad a though there never could be

11s Wute.-Th soil which is wasted
from the surface o our farms every year
to the amount of a billion tons, making,
with the future loss of fertilizing elements
arrived away in solution, the heaviest tax
the farmer has to pay, may in the course
of entries be replaced by the chemical
disinteration of the rock; but it is de-
eidedly wiser to keep what we have by
carefl methods of cultivation. We may
very proitably stop putting our farms
into streams, to be dug out at great ex-
pese through river and harbor appropri-
ations. Fertile soil is not wanted in the
bed of a stream, and it is wanted on the
Surface of the farms and the forest-cov-
ered slopes of the mountains. Yet we
spend millions upon millions of dollars
every year removing from our rivers what
ought never to have got into them.
Waste Through Piecemeal Planning.
Besides exhausting the unrenewable and
impairing the renewable resources, we
have left unused vast resources which are
capable of adding enormously to the
wealth of the country. Our streams have
been used in the West mainly for irriga-
tion and in the East mainly for naviga-
tion. It has not occurred to us that a
stream is valuable, not merely for one,
but for a considerable number of uses;
that these uses are not mutually exclu-
sive, and that to obtain the full benefit of
what the stream can do for us we should
plan to develop all its uses together. For
example, when the National Government
builds dams for navigation on streams, it
has often disregarded the possible use,
for power, of the water that flows over
those dams. Engineers say that many
hundred thousand horsepower are going
to waste over govern dams in this
way. Since a fair price for power, where
it is in demand, is from $20 to $80 per
horsepower annually, it will be seen that
the government has here, developed, yet
lying idle, a resource capable, under the
right conditions, of adding enormously to
the national wealth. So also in develop-
ing the western streams for irrigation, in
many places irrigation and power might
be made to go hand in hand.
Danger of Monopoly.
If the public does not see to it that
the control of water power is kept in
the hands of the public, we are certain in
the near future to find ourselves in the
grip of those who will be able to control,
with a monopoly absolutely without par-
allel in the past, the raily life of our
people. Let us suppose a man in a west-
ern town, in a region without coal, rising
on a cold morning, a few years hence,
when invention and enterprise have
brought to pass the things which we can
already foresee as coming in the applica-
tion of electricity. He turns on the elec-
tric light made from water power; his
breakfast is cooked on an electric stove
heated by the power of the streams; hi
morning newspaper is printed on a press
moved by electricity from the streams; he
goes to his office in a trolley car moved
by electricity from the same source. The
desk upon which he writes his letters, the
merchandise which he sells, the crops
which he raises, will have been brought
to him or will be taken to market from
him in a freight ear moved by electricity.
His wife will run her sewing machine or
her churn, and factories will turn their
shafts and wheels, by the same power.
In every activity of his life that man and
his family and his neighbors will have to
pay toll to those who have been able to
monopolize the great motive power of
electricity made from water power, if
that monopoly is allowed to become estab-
lished. Never before in the history of
this or any other free country has there
existed the possibility of such intimate
daily friction between a monopoly sno
the life of the average citizen.
It has not yet occurred to many of our
people that this great power should be
conserved for the use of'the public. We
have regarded it as a thing to ne given
away to any man who would take it. We
have carried over our point of view derived
from the early conditions when it was a
Godsend to have a man come into the
country to develop power and we are will-
ing to give him anything to induce him to
come. We have carried over that point of
view into a time when the dread of a
monopoly of this kind ought to be in the
mind of the average man everywhere, since we are still young." In truth we are

of citizens have become possessed of cer- mal de the simple, obvious, common-
tain facts, and have begun to work at sense thing in the interest of the nation,
one gr eatproblem. We have a drainage just as each of us does in his own per-
association, whose object is to make hab- sonal affairs.
table millions upon millions of acres, now On the way in which we decide to
lying waste in swamps all over the coun-
try, but capable of supporting in comfort
millions of people. We have forestry as-
sociations, waterway associations, irriga-
tion associations, associations of many
kinds touching this problem of conserva-
tion at different points, each endeavoring
to benefit the common weal along its own
line, but each interested only in its own
particular piece of the work and unaware
that it is attacking the outside, not the
heart of the problem. Now a greater
thing is opening out in the sight of the
people. This problem of the conserva-
tion of natural resources is a single ques-
tion. Each of these various bodies that
have been working at different phases of
it must come together on conservation
as a common platform. Bu the joining of
these units we shall have a mass of intel-
ligent, interested, public-spirited citizens
anxious to adopt a new point of view
about this country of ours.
That is the crux of the whole matter-
a new point of view about our country.
We have been so busy getting rich, devel-
oping and growing, so proud of our growth
that we have let things go on until some
intolerable abuse has driven us to imme-
diate action. It is time that we put an
end to this kind of opportunism, of mere
drifting. We must take the point of view
taken by the average prudent business
man, or man in any walk of life who has
property and is interested in it. What
the average man does in his own affairs is
to foresee trouble and avoid it if he can.
What this nation of ours is doing in this
fundamental matter of natural resources
is to run right into trouble head down
and eyes shut, and so make that trouble
inevitable before taking any step to pre-
vent it. But it should not take long to
reach the stage of national thought where
we shall deliberately plan to avoid the
difficulties which can be foreseen, if only
we can bring together all who have al-
ready begun to concern themselves with
one or another aspect of the conservation
The Problem Before Us.
This nation has, on the continent of
North America, three and a half million
square miles. What shall we do with it?
How can we make ourselves and our chil-
dren happiest, most vigorous and efficient,
and our civilization the highest ana
most influential, as we use that splendid
heritage? Ought not the nation to under-
take to answer that question in the spirit
of wisdom, prudence, and foresight ? There
is reason to think we are on the verge of
doing this very thing. We are on the
verge of saying to ourselves: "Let us do
the best we can with our natural re-
sources; let us find out what we have,
how they can best be used, how then can
best be conserved. Above all, let us have
clearly in mind that the great and funda-
mental fact that this nation will not end
in the year 1960, or a hundred years after
that, or five hundred years after than;
that we are just beginning a national his-
tory the end of which we can not see,
handle this great possession which has
been given us, on the turning which we
take now, hangs the welfare of those who
are to come after us. Whatever sueees
we may have in any other line of national
endeavor, whether we regulate truts prop-
erly, whether we control our great public

service corporations as we should, whether
capital and labor adjust their relations
in the best manner or not-whatever we
may do with all these and other such
questions, behind and below them all is
this fundamental problem, Are we going
to protect our springs of prosperity, our
sources of well-being, our raw material
of industry and commerce, and employer
of capital and labor combined; or are we
going to dissipate them? According as
we accept or ignore our responsibility as
trustees of the nation's welfare, our chil-
dren and our children's children for un-
counted generations will call us blessed,
or will lay their sufferings at our doors.
We shall decide whether their lives, on
the average, are to be lived in a flourish-
ing country, full of all that helps to make
men comfortable, happy, strong, and ef-
fective, or whether their lives are to be
liven in a country like the miserable out-
worn regions of the earth which other na-
tions before us have posseessed without
foresight and turned into hopeless deserts.
We are no more exempt from the opera-
tion of natural laws than are the people
of any other part of the world. When
the facts are squarely before us, when the
magnitude of the interests at stage is
clearly before our people it will surely be

The Feathered Tribe on the Florida Keys.
Prof. H. H. Kopman, of New Orleans,
a prominent and learned member and of-
ficial of the National Audubon Society,
an association with a world-wide reputa-
tion, organized for the preservation and
cultivation of birds, is a visitor to the
Prof. Kopman has just completed a tour
of inspection of the West Coast. He
commenced his inspection at Pensacola
and cautiously picked his way down the
inlet and bayou dotted coast of Punts
Rassa, on the extreme lower end of the
State. He traveled mostly by boat, and
has many interesting experiences to re-
He states that he found a half dozen
fine colonies of birds along the route he
traversed. The birds all seemed attached
to whatever island or section they had
adopted, and with but little attention
could be cultivated and multiplied with
He made thorough investigations of
these colonies of birds and states that it
is feasible for the government to estab-
lish and maintain reservations.
One of the finest reservations he says
he ever saw Is located upon what is called
Passage or Bird Key in Boga Ceiga bay.
This island has been blessed by nature in
the matter of formation, in fact it is a
most ideal place for birds. The birds that
make their homes on this island are 1mm-
erous, most of them being herons, sea
gulls and terns.
The reservation is in charge of Mr. A.
N. Pillsbury, Jr., a natural lover of the
feathered tribe. Mr. Pillsbury is giving
his time and attention to the reservation
gratis and takes a great interest in the
work he is accomplishing. Mr. Pillsbury
told Prof. Kopman that there were over
3,000 birds in the reservation, and the
outlook is good for the reservation becom-
ing the largest and most important in the
Prof. Kopman will leave Jacksonville
today for New Orleans. Upon arrival
home he will begin a series of lectures
upon the subject of birds for educational
purposes. He will make a similar tour of
inspection next season.
