C. B. ROGERS INTERVIEWED IN TAM-
PA ON NAVAL STORES SITUATION.
Engaged in the organization of a $1,000,-
000 corporation with the purpose of im-
proving naval stores prices and conditions
in Florida, Hon. C. B. Rogers, of Jackson-
ville, is spending today in Tampa, says
the Tampa Evening News. The prime
object of Mr. Rogers' visit was to secure
the consent of Col. W. B. Henderson of
this city, to act as one of the trustees of
the new company; and, in this. Mr. Rogers
was successful, greatly to his satisfac-
The new company originated at a meet-
ing of the Jacksonville Board of Trade, at-
tended by 400 members, the largest at-
tendance with one exception, in the history
of that body. At that meeting a large
committee was appointed, which in turn,
appointed a subcommittee, this subcom-

COL. W. I. TOOMER GIVES TESTI-
MONY BEFORE GEORGIA LEGISLA-
TIE COMMITTEE ON CONVICT
C'ol. W. M. Toomer, a well-known citi-
zen of Jacksonville voluntarily appeared
before the committee of the Georgia Leg-
islature that is investigating the convict
lease system of that State, last Saturday
and gave some interesting testimony rela-
tive to the workings of the system.

testimony is taken from the Atlanta

of convict labor, voluntarily presented

them all mistaken.
His Profits $x7o0,oo.
Mr. Toomer made vehement ldfense of
the practice of paying wardens extra com-
pensation. He said it was humane to the
convict, as it got them better bosses. The
commission, he knew, has authority to pay
wardens $100 in its own discretion; but,
he said, the Legislature must appropriate
the money first, and he thought the prison
commission has been done a great injus-
tice by the Legislature in this respect.
He volunteered the information to the
committee that his net profits from deal-
ing in convicts amounted to $170,000 or
Mr. Toomer stated he would be glad
to answer any questions or to make as
full statement as possible regarding his
connection with the present lease.

Contradicts Mr. Hurt.
The purchase from Callahan & Co., of
fifty men by Dr. Hamby, told of by Joel
Hurt, was recalled by Mr. Toomer, who
said that Mr. Hurt's testimony was false
wherein it related that Mr. Hurt coerced
Dr. Hamby, by threat of exposure, into
giving him half of the convicts that had
been sidetracked from Mr. Hurt's mines.
Mr. Hurt, said the witness, leased the
convicts from Dr. Hamby at a profit over
what Dr. Hamby paid.
Mr. Toomer, concluding, emphasized
that he had come voluntarily from home
in Jacksonville, at his own expense, to tell
the committee what he knew.
Chairman Felder replied that he would
have subpoenaed Mr. Toomer had Mr.
Toomer not been out of the State, and
that he was glad to have the witness be-
fore the committee.
Technical questions in debate of the
convict question on Mr. Toomer's under-
standing of it were directed by Chairman
Felder. Mr. Felder wished to ascertain
whether the commission at any time fur-

April, 1~ 6). more than their contracted
500 convicts. Mr. Toomer said he believed
the firm was short most of the time.
Said It Would Be Farce.
Mr. Toomer insisted on saying that he
thought the partnership between Moore
& Hamby, under fire of the investigation
committee, would develop into somewhat
of a farce. Chairman Felder interrupted
him three times on this statement to ask
that the witness state only what he
The witness reviewed, under questions
by Mr. Felder, some details of his working
of convicts, and of his connection with
Dr. Hamby and the connection of their
firm with that of Moore & Hamby.
Mr. Candler took up the questioning.
Under this questioning, Mr. Toomer
stated that there was no impropriety or
possible conflict in the slightest in the
paying of extra compensation to wardens;
that their duty would not interfere or con-
flict with their duty as employee of the
lessee unless both the warden and the
lessee were corrupt.
"I am not prepared to say that he
could," replied the witness, answering a
question as to whether he thought an ex-
tra pay warden could always disassociate
his own capacities.
Witness recalled the circumstances sur-
rounding the giving of his and Dr. Ham-
by's bond as convict lessees. He under-
stood the bond was secured from a New
York firm, and said that Mr. Hurt's testi-
mony was a revelation to him and had
excited his curiosity.

PROSPERITY IS HERE AGAIN.
From practically every line of industry
in the South the cheering information
comes to us that prosperity is again in
the saddle and business is once more on
the road to its normal sway.
No other panic that has ever occurred
in this country has had so speedy an end-
ing with so little of really serious results
to this section at large as the one of 1971,
and this should hold much of very great
significance to the South at this time.
The agricultural resources of the South
have proven its one important safeguard
and with such splendid outlook as now
exists for large crops this fall there is
scarce a cloud on the horizon where lately
all appeared dark in the business sky.
But there is need of having these resources
Iwtter understood, better protected and
more fully utilized if we are to go for-
ward in that degree of advancement which
lies before us.
It is entirely feasible to add a billion
annually to the agricultural wealth of the
South and that would give this section
added means for its development in every
field of industry. So we feel that it is an
imlprative duty resting upon every friend
of this section to stimulate improvement
in every farm product and every method
of cultivation that will bring higher values
to farm property.
But there is another feature connected
with this situation that must not be lost
sight of and which comes as a valuable
lesson from the recent panic. The South
must. provide one or more money centers
among its own cities so that the money
of this section will be at all times availa-
ble for the legitimate demands of its in-
dustries and commerce. If the money of
the South had been accessible during the
recent panic and not tied up in Wall Street
there would not have been the slightest
disturbance to business here from it.
With the growth of Southern manufactur-
ing enterprise and the constant additions
to its productive wealth in all lines there
should be no great difficulty in making
several Southern cities reserve money cen-
ters that could not be drained by Wall
Street and thus insure prosperity for the
South against any and all future mone-
If prosperity is permitted to revive that
old reign of speculation that prevailed a
year ago, there will be no currency scheme
that can be devised which will prevent
money stringency and even panics in the
future. This is the time to provide reme-
dies while we may and not wait till the
emergency arises which may not be suc-
There is no possible question but that
this section is growing more and more
able to meet all demands that can legiti-
mately be put upon it, but- it must at all
times have its own at hand with which
to face crises when they occur.
The South has as bright a future ahead
if it as any one could ask, but we have a
duty to perform which is in the hands of
every citizen in order to accomplish what
that future so richly holds uot to view.

LARGEST MILL IN THE WORLD.
The Great Southern Lumber Co, of Boga-
lusa, La., Claims This Distinction.
The G great Southern Lumber Company
of Bogalusa, La., is a Pennsylvania cor-
poration. with an authorized capital of
$12,330,700. The company is said to be
the largest lumber manufacturing propo-
sition in the world, and its members were
for a number of years the largest manu-
facturers of lumber in Pennsylvania,
where they controlled the hemlock cut-
ting of the northern and central counties
of the State. A few years ago when it
became manifest that the timber of Penn-
sylvania was about cut out and there was
no hope of long retaining a lumber in-
dustry that would keep them in control
of the Pennsylvania markets, the men
composing the Great Southern Lumber
companyy were attracted to the South
where a number of Pennsylvania lumber-
men had preceded them. They secured
the property of an old lumber firm on the
central gulf coast and acquired a very ex-
tensive llody of timber in Eastern Louis-
iana. At the beginning, it is said, their
Design went no further than investment
but when the opportunities were closely
scanned their horizon enlarged and
through the purchase of adjacent timber
and through the development and ma
terialization of enormous manufacturing
plants they have become what is known
as one of the greatest lumber manufac
during businesses of the world.
The directors of the company are:
Walter P. Cooke. Buffalo. Jerry Crary
Warren, Pa.; A. C. Goodyear, Buffalo:
anson IDpew. Buffalo: C. W. Goodyear
Buffalo; Henry Hamlin, Smethport. Pa.;
Iane S. Hart, Harrisburg, Pa.; Charles I
SJames. Baltimore, Md.; M. Olmsted
Harrisburg. Pa.; N. G. Pearsall, Coving-
ton, La.; ( George 0. Wagner, Buffalo.
"The bulk of the stock is held byx-
iwrienced lumlwrmcen. Tributary to the
plant at logalusa are 7, (0.000,000 feet of
choice longleaf yellow pine timber now
owned or available. The Bogalusa plant
will produce annually 175.000,000,000 feet
of lumler. It is estimated that the plant
will have a life of 40 years. The com-
ipany will furnish employment for 2.000
men. and the town. sawmills, buildings
equipment cost complete *3.000,000. Bo-
galusa is a town situated 5 miles north
of New Orleans, and has eight miles of
graded streets and 10 miles of four and
six-foot sidewalks. The town was built
primarily to convert the longleaf pine of
the company into timber.
"Here are timlber resources that in
quantity and value aw perhaps not ex-
celled anywhere in the South. Here have
been built mills-sawmills, planing mills
and all accessories-of a perfection of de-
tail and solidity and permanence of con-
struction such as have never before been
seen in this country. Around the mills
has been built a town full fledged; a
town that when it is set going, as one
would wind up a toy and touch the spring.
will have a teeming population living un-
dter most numlern conditions of health
and comfort: houses sewered and plumbed
and electric lighted and with bath rooms,
churches and schools, libraries and public
halls: stores and all the latest adjuncts
of civilization; mills, fireproof throughout.
with concrete foundations and walls and
roofs of iron: with machinery foundations
intended to last until the final log is cut
from the. Bogalusa country; and that will
le a long time yet, for that 00,000,000-
feet-a-day-mill is expected to have work
to do for 40 years to come, and when it
has completed its work and when the saws
and planers are still, the town of Boga-
lusa will live. the center of a thriving
agricultural country and the home of va-
ried industries, which will be provided by
the forethought of its founders.
"But at Bogalusa the whole thing is
planned for 40 years to come before a
wheel is turned. Truly, the history of
what the Goodyears have done in Louisi-
ana. andt the description of the business
which their sons will hand down to their
grandchildren, is worthy of reading by
those who love the big and bold or who
appreciate the marvelous accomplishments
of business acumen and industrial skill."--

The business of the company has grown
so rapidly during the past year or wro
that a change of quarters was n erad
absolutely necessary. The conqany has
foreseen this and has been quietly look-

time. When it became known that the
Palmer property would be offered for sale,
negotiations were begun direct between
the members of the two corporations with
the result as stated. The location of the

manifested i nthe large volume of business
done, over $4000,000 of insurance having
been pritten to date.
The company is particularly identified
with Jacksonville on account of its home
office being located in this city, but its
name is rapidly becoming well known in
other sections besides Jacksonville and the
state of Florida. Only recently entrance
was made into the state of South Caro-
lina, after the company was thoroughly
investigated, approved and granted a
license by the insurance commissioner of
that state. A strong agency force has been
organized in the "Palmetto State" and the
company is winning its way against its
strong competitors for business there. Pre-
liminary preparations have already been
made for the company to enter several
other states in the near future.
Strong Financial Showing
A semi-annual statement as of June 30
Shas just been issued showing the Florida
Life to be in a most flourishing condition
in every respect. It has assets, including
stocks, bonds and first mortgages amount-
ing to 8187,000; also a surplus to policy-
holders amounting to $134,000. A strong
feature of this statement is to the effect
That the company has $3.60 assets for
Every dollar of liability to policy-holders.
k This showing iOdeW creditable, and is
not only a high compliment to the Florida
Life Insurance Company, but it means
much for Florida, for Jacksonville and
M. D. Johnson ,the company's president,
has long been identified with the success-
ful captains of industry of this section and
his name is synonymous with that which
means progress and prosperity in connec-
tion with all his undertakings. In 1899
he organized the Peninsular Industrial
Insurance Company in the face of dire op-
position. His principal asset then was a
thorough knowledge of the fhsurance ousi
ness coupled with indomitable courage,
perservance and a determination to
succeed. This company of which he is
now president, has a premium income of
over $100,000 a year and is considered one
of the strongest industrial insurance com-
panies in the entire south.
Successful Business Men.
The officers of the Florida Life are all
men who have made a success in their
commercial undertakings and who stand
for the progress, prosperity and develop-
ment of the south. Its board of directors
are men of great strength and who are
identified with some of the south's largest
and most successful business and financial
institutions. The slogan of the Florida
Life. to keep the money at home, has
struck a popular chord and has awakened
the public to the importance of cooperating
with home industries and thereby receiv-
ing the benefits.
Every Citizen Interested.
Every citizen of Jacksonville should be
directly interested in the success of a
home enterprise and every citizen of Flor-
ida should demonstrate his interest in the
Florida Life Insurance Company by be-
coming either a policy holder, a stock-
holder, or both. The scattering of its
issue of stock over a large number of
states makes hundreds of men interested
in the continued success of this company
at home and abroad.
The annual receipt of thousands of dol-
lars covering insurance premnuma, a good
portion of which is invested in Florida, is
an important item to the state. The com-
pany is operated upon sound insurance
principles and issues all standard forms

We are leaders in our line of business. the cut herewith displayed is the repro-
duction of an actual photograph taken of one of our standard 30-bbl. Turpentine
Stills connected up in our yard, showing the Kettle, Cap, Arm and Worm, also the
Gate, location of seams and rivets. It is not a seamless still, but has the fewest
seams in it of any Still on the market.
This cut represents our actual production and is not made by a cast-off cut of
any other concern.
If your profit depends on the quality and workmanship of your Still it is evi-
dent that you must get a McMillan Still. All improvements that have been made
on Turpentine Stills that have been worthy of the consideration of the Producers
for the last decade are summed up in the McMILLAN TURPENTINE STILL of which
there are more in operation today than all other makes put together, and that they
are giving perfect satisfaction is shown by the ever increasing demand; because they
are built right. Possibly a little higher than any other at first cost, but your repairs
and the risk from fire is much less hazardous.
