Spirits Turpentine Again Declining. Pales Demanding
High Prices, But Commons Weakening Steadily.
A Frank Word to the Constiming Trade.
After a rather sudden advance, at the
end of last week's trading, spirits turpen-
tine have declined again, owing to lack
of support. It will be remembered, that
the market advanced up to 411/, cents
when the American Naval Stores Com-
pany and Standard Oil Company bought
considerable qualities of turpentine, not
only in the primary markets, but outside
For a short while it looked as if a
strong bull movement was to set in, but
such hopes were in vain. Instead of it,
however, our prediction, that prices would
not advance materially in June, but were
likely to follow a downward tendency,
has come true so far. Thursday saw tlhe
market as low as 39/4 cents, but there
was some strengthening undertone to it,
so that the further advance on Friday
did not come as a surprise. Again we
wish to impress upon our readers mne
fact, that the demand or rather the ap-
parent lack of it, has nothing whatever
to do with the falling back of pric-s. It
was brisk enough while the advance last-
ed, but, of course, subsided as tmion as
further bear pressure was brought on the
The reason for such occasional quick
advances can easily le found; they serve
the purpose of enlivening the demand,
considerable orders are placed during such
periods, only to be followed by bear tac-
ties, so that the sellers can cover at much
lower prices what has been sold before.
For this reason they may hI expected
from time to time and the market on Fri-
day is evident proof of this are, of course
These manipulations. All for the profit of
the speculators in control of the market,
and at the expense of producers and con-
A considerable advance is evident in
PAIES, for which the American Naval
Stores pays higher prices from day to
day in order to be enabled to take in the
bulk of the receipts -Commons-at so
much lower prices. Incidentally we wish
to point out to the producers the disad-
vantage of such game. As pales are
brought to the markets in so much smaller
proportions than Commons, the higher
prices paid for pales do not compensate
at all for the losses suffered continuous-
ly on Cbmmons. Nor is the American Na-
val Stores Company paying high on pales
for the benefit of the producing end. WVe
rather feel inclined to believe, that it is a
game to enable Mr. Speth in Antwerp to
get rid of his stock of French pale ros-
ins at good prices. Therefore, as soon as
this goal should be reached, it is likely
that the prices for pales will go u.,n.
When the American Naval Stores Com-
pany raised its selling prices for rosin
last week, a very strong demand sprung
up and enabled a rather sound support of
the lower grades too, in the Savannah
market. "G" rosin, in consequence, was
bought at $3.30 for a few days. There is
an uncertain feeling, however, regarding
commons, and we should not be surprised
to see prices go back again unless the
American sees fit to further stimulate the
In an effort to cover its market manipu-
lations, as much as possible the American
Naval Stores Company is advising con-
sumers that the naval stores trade suffers
the results of over-production. Even
statistics are brought to bear in proof of
such statements. While these statistics
may have been correctly compiled in Sa-
vannah. it must be borne in mind, that the
surplus in the Savannah receipts of last
year against the preceding season, is ar-
rived at by the fact, that some 20,000 bar-
rels which should naturally have gone to
the Jacksonville market, were diverted to
Savannah for some reason or other, so
that the increase there is only circumstan-
tial and at the expense of Jacksonville.
Outside of Mr. Shotter's statistics there
is nothing to prove a general increase in
the production of naval stores, and factors
andl proJlicers, who should be the best in-
forned on this subject, claim that there
was a decrease rather than an increase in
the total arrivals.
The fact, that there are now some 25,-
000, barrels spirits turpentine held in
tanks, should not be accepted as a proof to
demonstrate overproduction. Of course.
these stocks are there, but that does not
signify anything at all, because there has
been EVERY YEAR a surplus stock of
about that magnitude, except, that in for-
mer years this stock was in the hands of
the American Naval Stores Company, and
its immediate allies, and nothing ever
was said about it. Just stop to consider
the figures into which the contracts run,
which the American Naval Stores accepts,
and you will understand the necessity,
that they should carry at all times a
stock of 50,000 barrels or more all the
year around. except perhaps for the
months of March and April when they can
begin to figure on the arrivals of the new
crop. It should be remembered further,
that the American-since the biggest part
of the surplus stock could not be reached
by them-had to buy continuously last
year in other markets, and even from
middlemen, to fill their contracts. The
fact, that the visible stocks here have not
been taken up by the consumption to the
last barrel in April and May. is sumly a
consequence of the continuous bear manip-
ulations in the market, which were main-
tained in order to keep buyers from laying
in stock as usual, and to frighten the
tankholders into selling the stuff to the
American Naval Stores Company. The
latter have now coveted possession of the
tanked spirits turpentine for about a year.
and as their efforts did not yet attain the
purpose, reports of overproduction are
being spread in order to discourage the
It is always the same story, the "Mene
tekel" of the American Naval Stores Com-
pany can be recognized in every little inci-
dent befalling the market, and it will con-
tinue this way-the market will remain a
toy in the hands of the American, unless
the producing end takes some serious
measures for self-protection. Remember,
that your fight, against manipulators and
oppression is greeted with satisfaction the
world over, wherever Naval Stores are
bing used. The sympathies of the con-
sumers are with you also, because they
too suffer under the disadvantages of the
artificial market. We are in the agreeable
position today of being able to submit to
you a letter from one of the greatest con-
sumers of Naval Stores in the West, in or-
der to show you-as an encouragement.,
what the opinion of the buying interests
This is what they say:
Industrial Record, Jacksonville, Fla.
Gentlemen-We have been subscribers
for your paper for some time and note the
stand you are taking against the American
Naval Stores Company, and especially in
the last issue, asking all to "Unite in the
You are making your appeal to the fac-
tors and producers, what is the matter
with extending this to the consumers?
Don't you think the consumers could be of
great help to you and your cause?
If you get the consumers of rosin and
turpentine interested to such an extent
that they would direct their orders to such
firms that are not in combine with the
American Naval Stores Company, we for
ourselves feel that we are ready to give
you a helping hand and would now ask
you to point out to us a few independent
dealers in Jacksonville and other points,
who might be interested in our wants of
We refrain from making any comments
on this letter; it speaks for itself, and we
confidently trust that producers and fac-
tors will understand its meaning.
To the -onsumer, however, who has
come out so bravely with this offer of as-
sistance, we wish to render our heartfelt
thanks. It does us good to see, that more
and more the idea gains ground in consum-
ing circles, that the market manipulations
are a hindrance to the conduct of their
business. A consumer, under present con-
ditions, will never know when he ought to
buy and when he should wait with
placing his oders. It is a haphaz-
ard game with him and the chances are in
most cases that the cards are stacked
against him from the beginning. Just
consider, dear consumer, how the American
Naval Stores Company has played with
you again and again, inducing you to pur-
chase for forward positions at compara-
tively high prices, and then dropping the
market when the time of delivery did
come. We have hear of one instance last
year, when a buyer was led to contract
for spirits turpentine in March for the
whole year ensuing, at high prices. In
April last year the decline on turpentine
commenced which finally proved a drop of
nearly 30 cents a gallon. That buyer must
have lost a great amount of money, be-
cause all the time, that he had to accept *
the contracted spirits at high prices, his
competitors, in his particular line of man-
ufacture could buy at the prevailing mar-
kets and were able to undersell him in
every instance. It is almost impossible
for a consumer to guard himself against
falling into such traps, as long as the
market can be manipulated at will. We
have the proof for it. dating back only a
few weeks, that there are buyers now, who
suffer from the same conditions. Of course,
occasionally a buyer will profit by the ma-
nipulations-if he happens to be on the
right side of the fence, but you will all
agree with us, that by far the greater
numlwr of times he will be the loser. The
unoveiments of the manipulators are secret
and veiled in every possible manner and
there is nothing which could be consid-
ered as a safe basis for the consumer to
operate upon, as long as the manipula-
tions confront him.
Besides, the manipulations are not the
only disadvantage which buyers must con-
stantly fear in connection with the Ameri-
can Naval Stores Company. Is not thm

the indictments, also, facing the American
Naval Stores Company, according to which
spirits turpentine have been misgauged
and rosin horned-regraded? Why is it
then, we ask, that the consuming trade
still supports the American, enabling it to
become an octopus? We are sure, that the
consumers do not feel morally bound to the
American, whose officers have had to de-
fend their business methods twice al-
ready before the highest courts, and were
defeated each time on infamous charges,
They have no claim on the confidence and
trust of the world. Thus it can be a mat-
ter of prices only, which binds the con-
sumers to the American Naval Stores Com-
pany. But did you ever consider, dear con-
sumer, what means and ways permits the
American to undersell competition? In the
first place, have you not suffered an experi-
ence yourself, when you bought at a rather
high market for forward positions-at that
special moment, of course, the purchase
looked good to you-to see, that the mar-
ket was brought down subsequently, so
that the delivery could be made at a much
lower price? The American Naval Stores
Company knew in March, that June would
show the lowest market in turpentine-
therefore the great sales for that position
-they brought money into the pockets of
the manipulators at your expense. It is
unnecessary to cite any instances as far as
rosin is concerned, everybody remembers
how in January the market went up to the
$4.00 mark, how then the sales for forward
positions were made and subsequently, how
the market declined day after day.
This is not the only way, however, by
which the American Naval Stores Com-
pany can gain, at the cost of consumers'
interests--they have a surer method still
to secure profit, all the more sure. be-
cause they do not need to fear any coin-
petition on that score whatever. You
wish to know these means? Read the
indictment and you will know.
Horning of rosin that is, unlawful re-
grading of the barrels, can be done in a
double manner, first when the rosin is
delivered on the yards by the producers.
and then when the product is exported to
the buyers. The producers may get a
price for "H" on "I" rosin they delivered,
and the consumer gets "H" rosin where he
has paid for "I" rosin. Do you understand
now, how it is possible for the American
Naval Stores Company to be the cheapest
seller? In this connection, we wish to
draw your attention to the fact further,
that most of the Savannah stocks are
shipped to New York, although Savannah
offers every facility for handling them.
Consider. that Georgia has laws, pro-
hibiting horning of rosins, which New
York has not got; consider further that
the American have their own private
yards in New York, while they would
have to use the public railroad yards in
Savannah .. can you find the ex-
planation of this singular circumstance of
shipping via New York, at considerable
Now, friend consumer, after your eyes
are opened, will you still continue to pro-

Ind are a burden to the people. Under
proper forest management this land would
have been producing timber today. Be-
tween 1899 and last year the white pine
production fell off nearly as much in Wis-
consin as in Michigan. In Minnesota, the

amount of virgin white pine, the de-
crease in the same period was nearly one-

tamarack, elm, beech, Oak, spruce, ash.
and cedar, in the order given. The pine is
mostly white and Norway, which are
grouped together under the general trade
term of "northern pine." Pine made up
over nine-tenths of the lumber produced
in Minnesota, one-third of that produced
in Wisconsin, and less than two-fifths of
the total cut of Michigan.
Along with this great decrease in pine.
there have been relatively as heavy de-
creases in the most valuable of the hard-
woods, oak, elm, and ash. Little more
than one-fifth as much oak was cut in
the Lake States last year, for instance,
as in 1899, while the cut of elm and ash
was but half of that of eight years earlier.
As is always the case, the decreasing slup
plies of the more valuable woods have
caused those once considered of little or no
value to be drawn upon ?Seavily. This
has been particularly true with hemlock,
so that now more hemlock than pine is
manufactured in Wisconsin, and twice as
much hemlock as pine cut in Michigan.
There have been heavy increases in the
use of maple, birch, and beech within the
past few years, but the maximum cut of
these species is probably near at hand;
and taking all of the hardwoods together,
there has been a slight falling off since
WOOD LOTS IN JAPAN.
In these times of great drains on the
timber supply, caused by the heavy de-
mand for forest products of all kinds,
Americans may see in Japan an example
of what can be done in growing wood on
small plots. That country contains 21
million wosl lots, about three-fourths of
which belong to private persons and one-
fourth to communes.
The average size of the plots is les-i
than nine-tenths of an acre. They usual-
ly occupy the steepest, roughest, poorest
ground. In this way land is put to use
which would otherwise go to waste, and
if unwooded would loose its soil by the
wash of the dashing rains.
From Japan's woodlots, the yearly yield
of lumber isabout 88 feet, Ioard measure,
per acre, and three-fourths of a cord of
firewood. In many cases the yield is much
higher. More than half a billion trees are
planted yearly to make up what is cut for
lumber and fuel. Assessment for taxation
is low, averaging for the 21 million lots
less than a dollar an acre.
With all the care in cutting, and the in-
dustry in replanting it is by no means
certain that Japan's forests are holding

their own. If the preservation of the
forests is doubtful there, it is evident
that depletion must be alarmingly rapid
in other countries which cut unsparingly
and plant very little. On the other hand,
it is encouraging to see what can be done
with rough, steep and poor land. The
United States has enough of that kind,
without touching the rich agricultural
acres, to grow billions of feet of lumber.

will you do what your conscience must
bid you do and come to the aid of the
producers to help them free themselves
from conditions unbearable. The produc-

and they do not intend to be ungrateful
for your assistance. Their ideas are not,
to put the prices up to any figure, in or-
der to get rich quick, what they ask of
you is, to pay a price to them, which, be-

profit. Is that asking too much? And if
you do aid the producers against the

The first attempt to pave sateeis watS
wool. three-quarters of a century ago,
were failures, and for years after that no
satisfactory progress was made. The
blocks were round, which left large, un-
"qual spaces between them. Their edges
broke down and wore off, the wood rotted,
and the pavement was soon uneven and
rough, and therefore difficult to clean and
insanitary. At the present.time, through
i he selection of suitable woods, cutting the
blocks into rectangular shape so that
their edges may lie clhse together, and
treating them chemically to increase their
durability, wood pavement is better in
liany respects than any other in common
iue. It is smooth, quiet, resilient, easily
cleanedl, and easily repaired. In wearing
qualities it is superior to macadam, brick.
or asphalt. and inferior only to granite and
sandstone. In sanitary qualities is ex-

easier to dray a load upon, or, aa it is put

In recent years the difficulties which!
attended the use of wood pavement have
been largely overcome by Iwtter metlhdls
of handling, treating and laying th,'
blocks. Creosote is the best preservative.
in common use for wood plavement. Sin-e
it is insoluble in water, it does not htachl
out, and if a sufficient amount is injected
into the blocks it prevents the entrance of
water, which weakens the pavement.
The block should be rectangular in
shape. For heavy traffic their depth
should not be less than four inches. IThi,
usual width is 3 or 4 inches. and the lIst
length from 6 to 10 inches. They should
be laid with the grain vertical, on a con-
crete foundation having a thin surface

Of a TURPENTINE STILL s in what It does,
how It does It, and how long It will do It.
The McMILLAN STILL will produce the greatest amount of Pure Spirits
of Turpentine and the highest grade of Rosin from any grade of Crude Tur-
pentine, that it is possible to make, and will last longer under any kind -of
use, besides requiring less Wood and consequently less Water than any STILL
ever offered the TURPENTINE PRODUCERS.
THERE IS A REASON, they are built on HONOR, sold on their MERITS,
and fully GUARANTEED, therefore Mr. Turpentine Producer, KNOW THE
STILL YOU PURCHASE, do not experiment, order from the house of EX-
