The Jacksonville Board of Trade Begins a Movement of


Wide Interest to the Turpentine Industry.


The movement for a naval stores distrib-
uting company, to promote the interests of
auval stores producers, has taken shape,
pad the work was fairly launched at a
meeting of the Jacksonville Board of Trade
Wednesday afternoon. It was a rousing
meeting--one of the largest ever held by
the board-and fully illustrated the keen
interest felt in this great industry by bus-
iness men in every department of trade
-,and commerce. The meeting was first ad-
dressed by the president of the Board of
Trade, W. A. Bours.
President Bours' Address.
"I wish to thank each and every mem-
ber of the board for this magnificent at-
tendance this afternoon. It goes to show
that when any measure that affects the
interest of Jacksonville or the State of
Florida is to be acted upon, the members
of the Jacksonville Board of Trade can be
depended upon.
"I do not think that 1 can impress upon
yeo the great importance of the problem
that now confronts us, namely, the naval
Stores industry in this State, but it seems
to me that it is incumbent upon every
m ember of this board to see that we fos-
ter and take care of this great industry,
and see that the same is not diverted
from us by undue competition or combIna-
;tions.
"I understand that this industry means
the handling of between 4,000 and 5,000
carloads per annum, and, just think what
it would mean to us if the larger part of
these shipments passed through our ports.
"Our.cry should be: 'Florida ports for
Florida products.'
"We have deep water here and at Tam-
pa, Fernandina and Pensacola, and have
ample facilities for handling both foreign
aad domestic shipments.
"There is no other industry in the State
that has contributed more to the building
up aad the prosperity of Jacksonville. The
naval stores men, when they make money
Spend it freely, and they have invested a
lrge amount in our fair city.
S"Certain conditions have come about
that have reduced the price of naval stores
iand a greater portion of the shipments
are now being diverted from our ports. We
are now asked to take some action toward
the bettering of present conditions and or-
Sganize a company that will enable the pro-
dueer to get advances on his crops, and
- ot be compelled to sacrifice the same,
Sand I predict that in a very short time
after the organization of such a company
p.an will see a marked advance in prices
Wthiat will enable the operator to realize
Sfair preot on his goods.
"T is a matter worthy of our gravest
11 W-hstioi and I trust that our board
M fe to the occasion and take prompt
- I I .


The preamble and resolutions submitted
by the Board of governors with a recomn-
mendation that they be adopted, were
then read by Secretary Richardson, and
the members of the board paid the closest
attention to every line. The resolutions
are published herewith in full.
Others Uurged Adoption.
In moving the adoption of the resolu-
tions. Hon. D. U. Fletherr, nominee of the
Democratic party for United States Sena-
tor from Florida, made a stirring appeal to
the patriotism of the members of tihe
board to take -teps to protect this, the
greatest of all industries in Florida. Mr.
Fletcher was freely applauded, and there
is little doubt that his address had a
good effect. The address will be publish-
ed in full in a later issue.
Mr. F. P. Conroy, second vice president
and ex-officio a member of the Board of
Governors, followed Mr. Fletcher. and
stated that in presenting the resolutions
the board had in mind at all times only
the best interests of the city of Jackson-
ville, the county of Duval and the State
of Florida. He said that he believed the
plan proposed would greatly benefit the
city, county and State.
lion. W. II. Sebring, mayor of Jackson-
ville, followed, and in a strong and elo-
quent appeal urged the adoption of the
resolutions.
Mr. R. V. Covington, president of the
Covington Company, next addressed the
board, and made a forcible argument in
favor of the resolution, and especially the
plan proposed for the formation of a dis-
tributing company. Ills address will also
be published in full later.
Endorsed By City Council.
Next came Hon. J. M. Barrs, city attor-
ney of Jacksonville. Mr. Barrs called at-
tention to the fact that the city council
of Jacksonville, at its meeting the pre-
vious night, had adopted resolutions en-
dorsing the movement for the organization
of a strong distributing company, and had
appointed a committee to attend the meet-
ing to officially represent the council.
Mr. Barrs then read an extract from the
Savannah Morning News of yesterday, in
which it was stated that with Savannah's
"superior harbor, shipping facilities, rail-
road connections and terminals and its
progressive and wide awake business men,
Savannah has nothing to fear" from the
movement to organize the proposed com-
pany in Jacksonville.
Mr. Barrs pointed out that with Jack-
sonville's present deep water and the pros-
pect of getting a still deeper channel.
there would be no trouble in securing all
the terminal facilities needed, and also
that rates would be secured just as favor-
abe to Jacksonville as to Savannah for
the length of the hauL


lie declared that the s(ecuring of the
naval store- business for this port. where
it rightfully Is'long.. will make Jackson-
ville tlhe greatest city onl tih South At-
lantic sealoard. and Oni oif tihe greatest in
the rentir Sioth.
Secretary liehardsol then read the orig-
inal resolution adopted by tlhe city coun-
eil. and followed thii Aby reading the tele-
gr.iln from .iiovernor Ilrmtward. Ioth of
which were published in yesterday's
Timnies- union.
Resolutions Adopted.
After some further riiemarks bly .oe
King. .r., and others. thie motion for the
adoption of the resolution was lpt and
carried lIv a unanlinmons vote of the 300
mnemilers |present.
The resolutions submitted by the lHoard
of governorss and n which were adopted.
were as follows:
Causes and Effects and Remedy Proposed.
Among the causes which have contrib-
uted to the remarkable growth of the city
of Jacksonville and the State of Florida
in the past few years. none lias been so
liotent as the naval stores industry. In
less than ten years thi-~ bIsiness has grown
with astonishing rapidity and vigor from
almost nothllng; to a position of paramount
and commanding importance. Extending
into almost every county in lorida. every
section and every kind of business has felt
its progressive and stiniulating influence.
It has increased the volume of business
and attracted millions of new capital and
thousands of new citizens.
Foreign and domestic commerce has been
marvelously increased. New communities
have been established, and old ones have
grown and prospered. Banks, wholesale
and retail merchants and all classes of
business have felt the eftects of the wealth
and capital which has been invested in
the manufacture and production of naval
stores.
The profits of this business have gone
almost entirely to tle development of the
business and re-ources of Florida. Unlike
the lumber and phospliate business, the
naval stores industry is not only as wide-
spread as the limits of the State, but its
profits are mainly consumed and invested
within the State.
In thle development of thi- industry.
lands which were of no appreciable value
command prices which were once not even
hioled for. The increase in values has
not been confined to timlber lands. Its di-
reet result has tben reftlcted in the rise
in value of farm and city real estate. The
asseissld valuation of lands and personal
property in Florida during and the past
ten years -how an astonishing increase.
Property that for years has been held
by the State for unpaid taxes has been
redeemed and made productive.


-Jacksonville, Fernandina, Tampa and
I'eniacola have responded to this impulse.
\Wholesale and jobbing houses in these
cities have grown in number and increased
in capital. There is not a wholesale busi-
nii-s hiii-h. in Florida whach is not in a
nuneasure i".pendent upon this industry for
its present success and future prosperity.
IThe growth and effect of the naval stores
industry has not been confined to Florida
throughoutt the pine belt, and particular-
ly in the (;Glf States. the same influence
has been at work. As in Florida, the busi-
nes. of the I ulf States has received a
large measure of support from the manu-
factture, sale and transportation of tur-
lentine and rosin.
The gulf lports of Alabama, Mississippi
and Li.uisiana have enjoyed an extensive
foreign commerce and active jobbing busi-
ness as the result of the development of
the industry. Rail and water transporta-
tion lines of all the Southern States have
lwen directly benefited. The carriage of
naval stores from interior points to the
sealports and return of supplies of all
kinds have furnished a great and steady
income to our railroads. The coastwie
translwrtation of prodluts of this busi-
ness has Ibt-n a large source of revenue to
our stet nship lines. The general public
receives an indirect benefit from this in
the ability of the carriers to maintain
better andl cheaper service.
The proslnsrity which has marked the
naval stores industry for a number of
years has within the past year been sue- .
ceeded by the depressing effects of extrar-
dinarily low prices. Spirits of turpentine
is now being sold at prices lower than
any which have been touched for seven or
eight years.
A Manipulated Market.
The prices of naval stores have dropped
by a steady movement for several month
past. the regularity and precision of which
indicates a manipulated market. Within a
year the price- of naval stores have fallen
to nearly one-half of the ruling prices In
1907. To the State of Florida alone, the
difference between fair prices and these -
which the producer is now compelled to
atc-ept for his product would meaa not
less than four or five million dollars a
year in the aggregate.
The conditions which govern the in-
u~litry render it peculiarly open to the
ilanipulations of hostile speculators. The
history of the Ilnsiness shows that it has
lwii'e comparatively easy for persons and
corporations possessing extensive wealt&
to colmnnia l and control the markets of.*-i
this product and arbitrarily to iX toI
prices which producers shall obtain
their products.

though the demand for this product is an-
nually increasing, the price of naval stores
has steadily declined. All the conditions
surrounding the present market point to
the conclusion that the existing prices are
not the result of the law of supply and de-
mand, but are the effect, of speculative
manipulation in the interest of the export-
ers and are designed to deprive the pro-
ducer of even a modest profit.
The effect of these arbitrary prices is
not confined to Florida. Throughout the
turpentine belt in Georgia. Alabama, Mis-
sissippi, Louisiana and Texas, the produc-
ers are at the mercey of certain exporters.
The disastrous results of such hostile
combinations against the normal influ-
ence of supply and demand work equally
against the interests of all of the Southern
States. As more than one half of all the
'maval stores produced in America comes
from the State of Florida, the interests of
this State, and of the city of Jacksonville
are most directly involved.
The depressing effect of these manipu-
lated prices is visible to every one. The
future influence of the continuance of pres-
ent conditions is yet more serious.
Profit Depends on Prices.
Fair prices mean a fair profit and the
profit of this business is all that remains
to the State after the destruction of its
timber. The attention of the United
States has recently been forcibly directed
to the preservation of its natural resources.
S he standing timber is the principal nat-
ral wealth of Florida and the Gulf States.
But it is not less important that the tim-
ber products of Florida shall bring fair
Prices when the timber is consumed than
that the standing timber shall be preserv-
ed from unnecessary waste.
The cutting of timber without profit is
the most disastrous kind of waste and
it leaves nothing behind to represent its
value. The prevailing prices are so low
as no longer to make it profitable for the
Smill men to turpentine their timber before
S lgging.
Under these circumstances, re-forestra-
tion is not only impossible but the full
value of the existing timber is being irre-
Strievably lost. The naval stores product-
of pine trees exceed one-third of the en-
tire value of the standing timber. This ele-
me- nt of value will be totally lost if prices
Sontinue so low as to make it unprofitable
Sto turpentine timber before logging it.
The millions of acres of round timber
Sin the Southern States can not be made to
:- yield the wealth which they contain if the
Present manipulation and artificially low
Saices of naval stores shall continue.
Shipments Unnaturally Diverted.
The control of the naval stores mar-
kets having passed beyond the effect of
-the law .of supply and demand, the result
i c dearly shown in the movement of this
-podut to coastwise and foreign ports.
la-Instead of shipments being made to Fer-
nandina, Jacksonville and the Gulf ports
Searest the sources of supply, about 70
-. cent of the product is being arbitrarily
l"it amnnaturally diverted elsewhere. The

Re-olved. That this board is of the
opinion that relief from the existing con-
litions caln I'est be found in the organiza-
tion. ,by the laisiness men of this State and
elsewhere in the turpentine belt. of a cor-
Iotration of ample capital to handle, dis-
tribute and market naval stores on a com-
mission or brokerage basis. Such an or-
ganization. having branches in the princi-
ial markets of Europe and America, will
ie in immediate touch with the consumer.
and selling on commission. it would have
no incentive to stifle competition or main-
tain arbitrary prices in the interest of
speculators and monopolies. Such a com-
pany would not be intended to displace
legitimate naval stores dealers. Its busi-
ness could be conducted in harmony with
the present system. But the operation of
such a distributing company would con-
tinuously and at all times insure the su-
premacy of competition as the basis of
prices. give equal treatment to natural
channels of trade and make an end of dis-
erimination against persons and places.
For tbe purpose of placing these facts
and the proposed remedy before the in-
terested public, be it further

Pla to Secure and Disseminate Statistics.
The following resolutions were submit-
ted and adopted by a unanimous vote:
For many years past the naval stores
industry has suffered from false and mlis-
leading reports of each year's crop and of
the amount of turpentine and rosin held
for sale and on storage. No means have
existed for the collection and dissemina-
tion of reliable or trustworthy statistics
on the subject. The prices of these prod-
nets have been largely affected, if not con-
S trolled, by inaccurate reports and mislead-
ing estimates of crop conditions, future
production and the amount of stocks on
hand. Both producers and consumers have
suffered and continue to suffer liv such
S methods in use by unscrupulous snecula-
tors. It is therefore of vital importance
to the industry that accurate statistics be
gathered and regularly published, showing
Sthe amount of spirits of turpentine and
rosin from time to time produced and in
course of production, as well as the amount
S of stocks for sale and on storage. This
object cannot be effectively or adequately
attained without the aid and supervision

ADULTERATION AND
FALSE MARKING OF ROSIN.

The Following Preamble and Resolutions
Were Also Adopted by a Unanimous
Vote.
The adulteration of spirits of turil-intine
and the false marking and grading of rosin
has I1-nll for years a serious injury to the
naval -toresi- business. The.e fraudulent
practiees prevail extensively aml1oll1 ce.r-
tain dealers il naval stores. and have
reacell such proportions as alnmo.t to ex
tinguish honest competition. The adul-
teratilon of spirits of tlurllwntine- is so easy
to aceompilish and l- difficult to detect t hat
in spite of locnl inspection at the shipping
point, almost 1no spirits of turpentine call
he found in the hands of large dealers and
consumers that does not contain a large
percentage of :adulterants. Although rosin
is graded and imarked by local inspectors
whl-en -old byv the proshler, the inslpetor's
marks are afterward altered to indicate
higher grades.
'ITh false gulagingi of spirits of turpen-

to and foreign. In the absence of any
itral law on the subject, practical an-
dw prevails.
Ie industry is, therefore, at the mercy
certain dishonest dealers. The evil ef-
i1 of such unlimited and unregulated
mes are manifested. The consumer is
handed and deceived, and finds it next to
Iessible to procure the article which

ridl pure spirits of turpentine in compe-
tLB with that which is adulterated. The
Iam of naval stores are greatly dimin-
hai by the increase in the supply caused
adulteration. Rosin that is made and
Ai by the producer at certain grades is
I in the hands of the consumer at an-
ar and higher grade, which results in
rating the producer and defrauding the
ilumer to enrich a dishonest dealer. The
0Lrpread extent of these practices make
t prevention impossible without the in-
lerliton of the Federal government. In
SOther manner can relief he obtained.
SFlsing the existence of these condi-
an, md the paramount importance of a

SOME FACTS ABOUT THE PRODUC-
TION OF NAVAL STORES.
A short while ago we received an in-
teresting conimunication from one of our
readers in (ermnany which we desire
to answer through the columns of The
Industrial Record, as the topic is of com-
mon interest to all its readers.
uhr friend is of the opinion that we do
not judge the conditions of the spirit-
turpes'ntine market correctly and lie ad-
vises to keep prices about as low as
they have been for the past few weeks,
Ietause should the product reach a higher
scale of prices, its consumption would
shrink away at an alarming rate. lie
thinks that 40 cents for spirits of turpen-
tins is a satisfactory price, in view of the
fact that in former years the same product
was to be had at a price of only 25 cents.
First let us say, that it was not the
producer who brought the market on
spirits turlsentine to the 70 cents
mark, but it was the manipulation of
the ancient combine which is still alive to-
day in the American Naval Stores Coin-
pany. Nor was it the producer who
who reaped the benefit out of the 70
cents prices, leeause by the time that
the market reached that point, his prod-
ucts had nearly all Iwen delivered into the
primary markets at a much lower basis
and the whole profit went into the pock-
ets of lthe manipulators. We quite Ie-
live. that so very high prices have a
tendency to lessen the consumption of
pure spirits of turpentine and substitutes,
such as -"angajol." "Itra Turps," etc..
would find a ready market. On the other
hand, it is impossible to produce the gumi
spirits protitably at a price of 40 <-ents.
Years ago, it is true, the price was 25
cents. but the producers were very poor
men under conditions existing then. The
last few years have brought many
changes here as well as everywhere else.
and the general advance in prices, which
can Iw followed up for any product has
also influenced the price on spirits of tur-
pentine. Years ago, we dare say. bread
was to be had in (ermany at the rate of
5 Pfg. a pound, today it will cost as
much as 10 Pfg. and more a pound; meat
that could be Iwlught here at :l3z cents a
pound, years ago, will bring 11 cents and
more now, thus the advance in the value
of any product can be traced all over


the world. When spirits turpentine
was handled at 25 cents per gallon, labor
was cheap and virgin trees were to be
had at a bargain price. Since then the
demands of labor, in accordance with
the advance for all products. have be-
come more exacting flroi season to sea-
son and what is most ililjorlant. tlhe
land which could lie bought at $1.00 an
acre some years back. Inow sells at .Si.()
to $10..M), and even at ihat price there is
not tioo muicl to bli had. for the simple
reason that eviln tlie n.Iorlmoisl reserves
of forests in this country are rapidly giv-
ing out.
It wa-l natural that the ie-st tiniilwr
was used tirst for the productlion of naval
stores and these trees avera-ned aboutl 40
barrels of spirits and 140 bIarrels of rosin
a season of montlhs' liarld alsir, to a
tract of 10.tkM0 trees. Since the best
timlnwr hlas played mil a tree only lasts
four y.I'ir a imuch 1111 pro' l u'ltt ive grade

the whole producillng s-asion of 8 months.
Frmiii this you will see t hat, in order to
Ilanufacturel one single barrel of spirits of
turle.ntine--which in its turn will yieli
:31/ barrels of rosin a prainucer has to
work about one whole week under condi-
tions, which are none loo desirable. \We
wish. that s -, abroad. who, demand lower prices the
,loudest, wou1l colme over to this country
and go into the forests to see for them-
selves hlow the spirits of turlpntine is
produced. Ieiuse \ce are -lre. that they
woull Inot further grIudge the proullcers
a Ib'tter price for the product of their
toil. -lust stop to i onsidler, that 10.4000
trees yield in a u\eek not nmoIIe thiln one

freight to the market, coillnlussion to the
factor, understand. that unless he obtains a lwt-
ter price than 440 cents for spirits tur-
e'ntine lie had inIIhl better work in ai
varnish factory. using substitutes instead
of real gum spirits rather, than continue
producing naval stores in the thick of tlhe
forest.
With all that, while we are convinced.
that the lprllucers need better prices than
the present ion'es wIe are sure. on thie other
hand, that it is not hliiir desire to force
impossible prices on te 4 consumers. The
new company which is being organized to
protectt the interests of t h producers will
be operated entirely o'n the basis of sup-
ply and demand and sll(e \ery feature
of speculation \ill IN avoidled in tlihe mar-
ket it is easy to be see ll that the prices
will only advance in tlhe Illnensre of in-
Ireasing demand. The American Naval

ed here -cainI i i) aloult. buidt we repeat
again, that thle interests of tle prinueers
only desire a market free f manipulation
and that goal alhng \ith a stualle market.
the new company is oing to bring, will
lenefit consuners anld pruiners alike.
We woull also draw your attention to
the fact that the production of naval
stores is not at all unlimited, that on
the contmrar-v. it goes hack from year to
year, as fast ais t I t limllr is used up. It
is easy to be seen. tIhreforte, that higher
prices are also necessitated by scarcity of


the material and we believe that mslrti-h
tutes will sooner or later come into me to
take the place of pure gum spirits, sim-
ply on account of the decrease of produe-
tion of the latter. North Carolina is, so
to Slwak, out of the running as far as
naval stores production is concerned,
(;eorgia will be through with it in less
time than may be anticipated, in Florida
already the better timber has been used
up. so there are only the States of Louis-
iana. Misisissippi and Texas left for the
production of naval stores, and there the
stuff cain It' made only at additional ex-
pens'e lIe-auise these States are more or
less in tie interior and their shipping fa-
eilities doh not eilual those prevalent in
the _Atlantic (oast States. While it is thus
,h,\ios,. that the naval stores production
is on the decline, it is an undeniable fact
,on the other hand, that the paper indus-
try and every other industry, in which
naval store, are used. multiply them-
selves so to speak, in accordance with the
inilre.asinlt population in every country.
There -can le therefore no question of
overproduction in the naval stores trade,
instead. we darei say, the decline in this
ires51't will be felt more and more as
ye.rs pass by.
We trust that we have convinced our
readers with this little talk about cost of
prodluction of spirits that the producers
a:re itno working at a loss and that steps
nlust IS taken in order to protect the in-
ldustry from utter ruin. The remedy has
already l'en found in the formation of
the new company which is to create a
stable, non-slpeulative market, and we
are sure of its sulcess because every
fail- minded producer and consumer as
well. will render assistance, since the com-
piany is there for their common good.
In this connection we wish to say one
more word relative to the American Na-
val Stores Company. The world now
knows, that this concern has ever been
the di-turbing element in the trade with
its endless manipulations and schemes.
The American is now faced by a very seri-
ous prolsess. it will be tried in November
before the highest court of this country
andl we are informed by high authority,
lhat not only will there be new Indiet-
ientlc s brought up against the American,
but other concerns further will be indiet-
ed, concerns more or less closely connected
with the mentioned concern, so that it
can well Im- holed to see the country free
in a short time of the octopus, which
tried to swallow everything in its maw.

PEOPLE'S FORUM.
'ITo the Naval Stores Producers:
I know that many of you go to work
at day break and come in after dark and
I know, that as a rule you come in tired
in Ibly and mind, often wet from head
to foot. worried to the verge of insanity
by indifferent help. perhaps the loss of a
mule, the breaking of a wagon, the spill-
ing ofa barrell of dip, the waste of gum by
your clippers. the small percent of spirits
gotten hby your distiller, the low grade of
rosin, the high freights you had to pay on
your last car. the poor inspection, the
numiiler of laId barrels that were turned,
the exlensei of binders, insurance, inspee-
tion, the high price on the entire line of
merchandise, the $1.75 corn, the $220 oats,
the 10 to' 25 cents per sack for freight, the
high price of cotton batting, hoop irom
spirits barrels and the hundred and ena
things, that are calculated to drive you to
deeds of desperation. But notwitlhtan
all this, I request you to READ a 1IMl.

r- The Actual Worth


MeMillan Bros.


Of a TURPENTINE STILL Is 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 oilered the TU'RPENTINE PROI)ICERS.
THERE IS A IEASON, they are built on HONOR, sold on their MERITS,
and fully GIARANTEED, therefor Mr. Turpentine Producer, KNOW THE
STILL YOU PIRCHASE, do not experiment, order from the house of EX-
I'ERIENCE.
