TO GET TOGETHER AGAIN.
Important Movement Begun by the Jacksonville Board of Trade that
May and Should Be Encouraged by Every Business Man.
The Secretary of the Jacksonville Board
of Trade has sent the following letter to
all its members outlining important busi-
ness affecting the naval stores interests at
its meeting next Wednesday:
Jacksonville, Fla., July 3, 1908.
Dear Sir-We beg to call your atten-
tion to the fact that the next regular
meeting of this organization will fall on
Wednesday, July 8th at 3:00 p. m.
There are some very important mat-
ters to be transacted at this mneetmng
and we want you if you can possibly do
so, to arrange to keep that time free to
attend the meeting.
Among the important subjects to be
taken up is one that is of vital interest
to every single member of this organiza-
tion, every wholesale and retail merchant
in the city and in fact, every citizen of
this State, namely: the present condition
of the naval stores business of Florida.
You are probably aware that at the
present time, the price of rosin and spirits

duction and when this condition prevails,

cent of Florida naval stores is going
through Jacksonville to a port in a neigh-
boring State and the commerce of this
city is damaged very seriously to that

Committees of this organization have
been at work for some time past to secure
a remedy and plans are now ripe to lay
before you, which we believe will bring to
us better times and conditions generally.

subject have been secured and it remains

and we will appreciate it very much in-

mail it by return mail. We are desirous
of ascertaining from the members wheth-
er the majority would prefer to hold the
regular monthly meetings of the Board of
Trade in the evening or the afternoon.
The result of this ballot will be announced
at next Wednesday's meeting. Kindly
attend if possible. We need your pres-
ence and influence. Very truly,
H. H. Richardson,
Commenting upon this present move-
ment, the Times-Union of this city, con-
tains the following:
"In the plan suggested for putting the
naval stores industry of Florida on a
sound footing and protecting the producer
from dictation on the part of the con-
sumer or market manipulator, the Jack-
sonville Board of Trade is taking up a
work of inestimable value to every busi-
ness and financial interest in Florida."
That was the way one of the leading
business men of Jacksonville expressed
himself yesterday regarding the plan out-
lined yesterday in the Times-Union. And
his sentiments were endorsed, without ex-
ception, by every business man approached
regarding the subject.
Th plan is universally regarded as one
wholly feasible, and as one supplying not
only a remedy for the conditions that ex-
ist today, but effecting a permanent cure.
By putting the industry beyond the reach
of all causes that have brought on the
present conditions, there will be nothing
more to fear.
Loas to Florida.
The very fact that the quoted price of
spirits of turpentine is today lower than
the actual cost of production proves that
it is necessary for something to be done
to protect the producer, and the industry.
The State, too, it is argued, must be pro-
tected against the losses resultant from
conditions such as exist at present, for
these conditions affect, in no uncertain
way, the material prosperity of Florida.
Speakers and leaders in the naval stores
world have openly stated that the condi-
tions of the naval stores market have
meant a loss of at least $4,000,000 to
undertake would bring better results than Florida. This statement has been printed
in the newspapers, in reports of tlhe
speeches made, and referred to time and
time again in articles touching on naval
stores matters, and lbing as yet uncmon-
tradicted and unchallenged, are held by
the business world as admittedly true.
A loss of $4,000,000. though first, sorne
by the naval stores industry and more es-
sentially the producers of naval stores is.
it is argued, shared by every bu-iness in-
terest. Wholesale and retail merchants,
banks, business enterprises of all kinds,
must feel the loss, and hence, it is pointed
out, the matter is one of universal con-
cern to every business and professional
man in Florida.
Plan Is Effective.
One business man, who has made a care-
ful study of the conditions and the causes
that led up to them, declared yesterday
that the plan of forming a great company,
capitalized at between $1,500.000 and $3,-
000,000 to hold the products until prices
were satisfactory, would solve the prob-
He held that one of the material causes
working to make it possible to hammer
the market down to present prices, was
the fact that the producer, with his obliga-
tions to meet, had to have money. There-
fore, even though he believed prices were
lower than justified by supply and de-
mand. he had to sell to get ready money
and that sale aided instantly those play-
ing on the bear side of the marKet..
A company, sufficiently capitalized to
act as a holding company, could, by ad-
vances, tide the producer over any bear
effort, no matter how prolonged. Ad-
vances could be made, negotiable ware-
house receipts backed by a company with
a large paid-in capital would aid mightily,
and a great step would he taken toward
putting an end to market manipulations.
Then. when conditions were ripe, sales
could Iw made by this company.
Getting In Capital.
The Jacksonville Board of Trade, com-
Iposel of the leading figures in the business
world of Florida, has a standing that will
be recognized in the business world in
general. With this organization father-
ing the project, it is luinted out, the new
company gets instant standing and will
command from the start the attention and
confidence so necessary to success.
The plan contemplates having tlhe capi-
tal stock eventually and as rapidly as
possible, taken up by producers throughout
the turnltitine Ielst. antil estlially in the
Florida division thereof. This would
make then per.-~wally interested in the
company. anxious to h114el it succeed, andl
by turning their business over to that
company would, it is argued, make suc-
The plan under which it is sugg.tsled
that the prodlucers take upl the stcwk is one
that, it is generally felt, will meet with
approval. The plan. as thus far roughly
outlined, looks to having the iprojsuctr pay
in. on the Ipurcha.-e price of his block of
stock a certain sum out of his profit on
each barrel sold when the prices get above
a certain figure. This is to be made small.
so that it will hardly be felt, and yet. if
producers generally take it np, as it is con
fidently believed they will, it will net the
company enough to make it certain of
standing on a paying basis.
An Important Meeting.
This matter is regarded as the mo-t
important that is to come before the
Board of Trade at its meeting Wednes-
day, and one in which the Florida business
world is deeply interested.
The work will be started through a
committee of fifty, with a business mtan of
recognized ability at its head. This com-
mittee will be divided into sulblommit-
tees, each with certain definite work to do
and yet working under the general chair-

immediately after Wednesday's meeting,
when the plans are definitely formulated,
anti when something more than an outline

To Protect Ports.
Another feature that is of vital interest
to the Ibsiness men of Jacksonville espe-
eially is the stand that will be taken by

PIWA ABLE REVIVAL OF ACTIV-
ITY IN LUMBER CIRCLES IN
Savannah. Ca.-Shifting from a condi-
tion where there was no demand for lum-
ber, with the mill men overrunnig the city
looking for orders for their output to one
where there is a demand for the material,
with buyers for local firms scouring the
entire State looking for material to buy
in order to fill orders, the lumber market
of this section, at least, furnishes one of
the most striking contrasts seen in many
a day. Six months ago the millmen from
the interior were simply frantic to sell
their material, accepting prices actually
below the cost of production. Now the
conditions show a marked change for the
better, and several buyers have been
placed on the road to purchase everything
in sight, especially dimensions.
It is now the inning of the interior saw
mill men. and they in turn are showing
absolute indifference to all overtures of
the buyers. Indeed, when seen at their
mills most of the sawmill men express
anything hut inclination to sell, and it is
very certain that the 80 per cent of the
mills now in operation in the State have
the situation well in hand. Lately it has
Ieen no uncommon occurrence to secure in-
creased prices, sometimes as much as $3
to $5 per thousand over previous quota-I
tions at the mills, and in every instance
the middle men here have "dug down in
their jeans" and paid the increased values
demanded by the millmen for their out-
Aside from the improvement from the
standpoint of the "the man in the woods,"
the local situation shows an unmistakable
improvement. The demand is said to be
increasing steadily; the volume in in-
quiries is much greater; millions of feet of
orders are not uncommon; and, best of
all, the larger buyers of the North and
East are showing a decided uneasiness.
The interior millmen, however, who are
simply sitting steady in the boat and ex-
pressing unusual confidence in their abil-
ity to hold the situation, say that they
will wait until prices show an improve-
ment all along the line. That they are
in a lpoition now to dictate terms is very

The Groover-Stewart Drug jmpny, of
Jacksonville, ouu of the largest and most
successful wholesale drug Jouses in the
South, tendered their officers and em-
ployees a banquet at the Windsor Hotel
on last Tuesday evining. This event
marked the closing of the seventh year
of their history since te great fire of
1901, which'swept them out of existence
temporarily. As a phoenix they have
Risen from the ashes and builded a busi-
ness that is an honor to this great eity
and ample cause for gratification to the
master minds who direct the destinies of
this mammoth business.
The fiscal year closing on June 30, lke
its predecessors, was celebrated, by a so-
cial gathering of officers and employee, at
a banquet served at the famous Windsor
Hotel. Indicative of the cosmopolitan char-
acter of the city, and incidentally of the
Groover-Stewart Drug Company, there
were seated at the festive board repre-
sentatives of Florida, Georgia, Alabama,
South Carolina, North Carolina, Ken-
tucky, Louisiana, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan
and Nebraska. After enjoying to reple-
tion the magnificent spread and while thl
seductive champagne sharpened the al-
ready keen wit of the party, after din-
aer speeches were indulged in until a
late hour. The spirit exhibited by em-
ployer and employes, the mutual confi-
dence expressed by each for the other, pre-
dicted continued success for the Groover-
Stewart Drug Company.
In addition to tbh twenty-four attaches
of the company assembled at the table
were Messrs. M. D. Craig, reptemsetin

,I~I.u.uuS. lUuIu Sl li *iiuuuuuIo/
We have before us last Saturday's edi-
tion of the Naval Stores Review contain-
ing statements about the naval stores sit-
uation, which, to our opinion, differ so
much from actual conditions and eircum-
stances, that we feel it our duty to draw
our readers' attention to -, Tioping to
benefit them by giving word to our ideas
on the subject.
Of course, we recognize, that the Na-
val stores Review figures as the mouth-
piece of the American Naval Stores Com-
pany, and therefore, we presume, only
such information is allowed to appear
therein, which would tend -o hide the
true reasons for the fluctuations in the
market and leave the mentioned concern
a much abused, innocent and guileless
baby. If the American Naval Stores Com-
pany is charged with manipulating the
Savannah market, the Naval Stores tfr-
view will come forth to show that some-
how there is considerable overproduction,
and no demand on the part of the buyers.
If spirits turpentine decline for the period
of a YEAR AND MORE, CONSISTENT-
LY, the artificial financial panic of last
NOVEMBER--of which Mr. Shotter very
likely had an inkling some months in ad-
vance--with its subsequent stagnation of
business in general, is to blame for it, etc.,
The above referred to issue of the Re-
view now explains, why pales are so high
at present and commons at the lowest
point for years. It is claimed, that in
the one instance not sufficient rosin has
been produced to fill the t-mand, while
commons are said' to suffer the conse-
quences of overproduction, which could
have been avoided by the producers them-
selves. We will admit, that pales are
scarce and commons more plentitul than
customary for this time of the year; but
while the producers did curtail the out-
put of pales by reducing the boxcut last
winter-following the often expressed ad-
vice-they were unable to influence like-
wise the crop on commons, unless they
were willing to suffer a dead loss.
The old boxes-producing commons-are
there and it, is simply a matter of col-
leeting the rosin they accumulate, or let-
ting it go to waste. Under these circum-
stances the greater receipts, comparatve-
ly, on commons are only circumstantial
and do not entirely depend on the operat-
ors. We do not see any reason therefore,
w'y the Review should blame the sentt
condition of things on the producers, in-
stead of bringing it home to the true
cause. which is the manipulation of the
American Naval Stores ('Om-nl ....
We claim, that other circumstances than
natural conditions are reslonsible for the
low market, and we say further, that the
:high prices on pales as well as the low
prices on commons are the result of some
well devised scheme of the American Na-
val Stores Co. We received information
some time ago, from a very reliable source,
that there were some 12.000 barrels of pale
FRENCH rosins in the hands of the Ant-
werp branch of the American Naval Stores
Company. When the prices of the Ameri-
can pales were low, the French crop was
unable to find a profitable market and
therefore, it was decided to raise the
prices here in order to enable Antwerp to
dispose of the accumulations there at ad-
vantageous prices. The Review itself
states (Report from Bordeaux, France,
the principal seat of the French Naval
Stores Industry), that "the recent sharp
advances in American grades from K to
WW have had a strengthening influence on
the situation here" and it is evident thus,
at least, that a very close connection is
kept between the American and Antwerp
interests of the American Naval -tnrea
Company, which may well have caused the
scheme for the disposition of the French
rosin. In this way, however, consumers
in this country were forced to pay high
prices on Pales for the benefit of the
Preach resin in the hands of the Antwerp.
branch of the Shotter concern. Of course,
we are only too glad to see high prices on
pales, as it will compensate-though only
in a very little degree-for the loss the
producers have suffered constantly on com-
The latter, although there was a fair
demand of late, which might, under ordi-
nary conditions, have sustained the prices,
are again on the decline. It has been ob-
served continuously, that buyers do not
purchase on a declining market, they are
coming forward, however, as soon as the
market shows any strength, especially if
this strength is supplied by the American.
Does that prove to you, dear reader, that
the low prices on Commons are a conse-
quence of lack of demand and overproduc-
tion? We are of a different opinion at any
rate, and we dare say, that the consuming
trade would have bought just as big quan-
tities as ever, if the prices had been higher
to the extent of 50 or even 75 cents. If

in consideration of the fact that this con-

Several incidents confirm to us the opin-
ion expressed, that the American Naval
Stores Company will meet the formation
of a new selling company with a fight on
high priced products. The very latest re-
port in this connection is the information
about the imports of French pale rosins on
the part of the American. Pales being
scarce in America. it will be easy for the
American to bull prices considerably and
the cheaper French resins will help in this
movement because they will allow the
American to discount the market consid-
erably, so that the new concern will be un-
able to sell the high-pricei pales and get
overstocked on them. The new decline on
commons serves about the same purpose,
as it will enable the American to increase
the accumulations to an extent which will
allow them for a long time to undersell
the new competitor, so that the latter
must accumulate enormous stocks on the
high market. There is every chance thus
for a very strong market in the near fut-
ure and we dare say, that Mr. Shotter will
force an advance upon rosin as well as
spirits turpentine as soon as he sees fit,
which will be nothing short of the bull
movement witnessed three years ago, when
lie had to fight the Naval Stores Export
REMARKABLE REVIVAL OF ACTIVITY

evident, and in this respect they are fol-
lowing to the strict letter the wholesome
advice given in the Journal.
That there were one or two buyers sent
out on the road by local firms in order to
secure lumber with which to fill contracts
closed previously was mentioned in a
former letter from Savannah, but there
are now several on the road. One man in
particular for one of the largest firms here
was sent out looking for material fol-
lowing the effort to do business with the
mills by wire. The firm sent to a promi-
nent millman near Quitman an inquiry
for dimensions, 2,000,000 feet, at $22 per
thousand. The two parties could not get
together on this basis, the millman insist-
ing that he wanted $23. An order was
sent for the material in several days at
the figures named by the interior man,
but in the meanwhile prices had jumped
to $25. He was ordered to go ahead with
the order at the higher level in two or
three days, but when communicated with
again his price was $27. At this value he
finally refused the order, and it is said
that the air in the immediate vicinity of
the wholesale operator's ofiee here was a
decided indigo for some time. Oeurrences
such as these, it is true, are not common;
still, it tends to show the independent at-
titude of the sawmill men. To an in-
quiry sent gut by another prominent
wholesale house recently the following
characteristic replies were received: We

ago known popularly as the "Lumber
King" of this section of the country, is WITI
dead. Death came suddenly but peace- G a
fully to Mr. Reppard, who was one of the
finest men in Savannah. A meeting of the
creditors of Reppard, Snedeker & ('o. was
held, and at that time it was learned C
that the firm's liabilities were more than Cypre
$350.000. of which the secured claims are
for $180,000. Most of the creditors are in
Georgia. According to a statement fur-
nished the committee appointed to look
after the firm's affairs, temporarily at
