Prospeaus of The Naval Stores Marketing

Company.


Resolutions Submitted by the Board of Governors of the Jacksonville,
Fla., Board of Trade and Unanimously Adopted by the
Board at its Regular Meeting, July 8, 1908.

Pursuant to the resolutions of the Board of Trade of the City of Jacksonville, Florida, unanimously
adopted at a regular meeting held July 8th, 1908, a copy of which is attached, the Special Committee on
Naval Stores of the Board of Trade, authorized and appointed under such resolutions, acting with the

It is proposed that the corporation shall have a capital of not less than One Million or more than Two
Million Dollars, the stock being divided into shares of the par value of One Hundred Dollars each. In order
to secure continuity of management and a consistent policy until the companyy has securely established its
business, it is proposed that all of the stock of the Company, except so much as is necessary to qualify the
Directors to hold office, shall be vested in the Trustees mentioned below, and their successors, for a period of
five (5) years. The Trustees will issue to each stockholder a certificate of his holdings in the corporation.

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.







Resolutions Submitted by the Board of Governors of the Jacksonville, Florida,
Board of Trade, and Unanimously Adopted by the Board
at its Regular Meeting, July 8, 1908.



A MONG the causes which have contributed to the remarkable growth of the City of Jacksonville and the
State of Florida in the last few years, none has been so potent as the naval stores industry. In less than
ten years this business has grown with astonishing rapidity and vigor from almost nothing to a position of
paramount and commanding importance. Extending into almost every county in Florida, every section
and every kind of business has felt its progressive and stimulating influence. It has increased the volume of
business and attracted millions of new capital and thousands of new citizens. Foreign and domestic com-
merce 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 effects 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 the development of the business and resources of Florida. Un-
like the lumber and phosphate business, the naval stores industry is not only as widespread as the limits of
the State, but its profits are mainly consumed and invested within the State. In the development of this in-
dustry, lands which were of no appreciable value command prices which were once not even hoped for. The
increase in values has not been confined to timber lands. Its direct result has been reflected in the rise in
value of farm and city real estate. The assessed valuations of lands and personal property in Florida during
the past ten years show an astonishing increase. Property that for years has been held by the State for un-
paid taxes has been redeemed and made productive. Jacksonville, Fernandina, Tampa and Pensacola 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 business house in Florida which is not in a measure dependent upon this
industry for its present success and future prosperity.
The growth and effect of the naval stores industry has not been confined to Florida. Throughout the
pine belt, and particularly in the Gulf States, the same influences have been at work. As in Florida, the bus-
iness of the Gulf States has received a large measure of support from the manufacture, sale and transporta-
tion of turpentine and rosin. The Gulf ports of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana have enjoyed an exten-
sive foreign commerce and active jobbing business as the result of the development of this industry. Bail
and water transportation lines of all the Southern States have been directly benefited. The carriage of naval
stores from interior points to the seaports, and return of supplies of all kinds, has furnished a great and
steady income to our railroads. The coastwise transportation of products of this business has been a large
source of revenue to our steamship lines. The general public receives an indirect benefit from this in the
ability of the carriers to maintain better and cheaper service.

vUSPma.SION HAS FOLLOWED PROSPF a ix.
The prosperity which has marked the naval stores industry for a number of years has within the
past year been succeeded by the depressing effects of extraordinarily low prices. Spirits of turpentine
is now being sold at prices lower than any which have been touched for seven or eight years. The prices
of naval stores have dropped by a steady movement for several months past, the regularity and pre-
cision of which indicates a manipulated market. Within a year the prices 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 those which the producer is now compelled to accept for his product would mean not less than
four or five million dollars a year in the aggregate. The conditions which govern the industry render it pecu-
liarly open to the manipulations of hostile speculators. The history of the business shows that it has been
comparatively easy for persons and corporations possessing extensive wealth to command and control the
market of this product and arbitrarily to fix the prices which producers shall obtain for their products.
Although the supply of timber is limited and constantly decreasing, and although the demand for this pro-
duct is annually 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 demand, but are the effect of speculative manipulation in the interest of the exporters, and are designed
to deprive the producer of even a modest profit.
The effect of these arbitrary prices is not confined to Florida. Throughout the turpentine belt in
Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas, the producers are at the mercy of certain export-
ers. The disastrous results of such hostile combinations against the normal influence of supply and de-





I

mand work equally against the interest of all of the Southern States. As more than one-half of all the
naval 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 manipulated prices is visible to everyone. The future influence of the
continuance of present conditions is yet more serious.
FAIR PRICES MEAN A FAIR PROFIT.
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. The standing timber is the principal natural wealth of
Florida and the Gulf States. But it is not less important that the timber products of Florida shall bring
fair prices when the timber is consumed, than that the standing timber shall be preserved from unneces-
sary waste. The cutting of timber without profit is the most disastrous kind of waste, and it leaves noth-
ing behind to represent its value. The prevailing prices are so low as no longer to make it profitable
for the mill men to turpentine their timber before logging. Under these circumstances, re-forestration
is not only impossible, but the full value of the existing timber is being irretrievably lost. The naval
stores products of pine trees exceed one-third of the entire value of the standing timber. This element
of value will be totally lost if prices continue so low as to make it unprofitable to turpentine timber be-
fore logging it. The millions of acres of round timber in the Southern States cannot be made to yield
the wealth which they contain if the present manipulated and artificially low prices of naval stores shall
continue.
PRODUCT ARBITRARILY Dvm-wnru.
The control of the naval stores markets having passed beyond the effect of the law of supply and
demand, the result is clearly shown in the movement of this product to coastwise and foreign ports.
Instead of shipments being made to Fernandina, Jacksonville and the Gulf ports nearest the sources of
supply, about seventy per cent. of the product is being arbitrarily and unnaturally directed elsewhere. The
effect of this discrimination against Jacksonville and other cities to which the business belongs is becoming
increasingly manifest. It will not be possible for the commerce of Jacksonville and other Gulf ports to
attain their normal proportions unless naval stores can be obtained to form a part of mixed cargoes with
lumber, cotton and phosphate. The progress and prosperity of Jacksonville and the Gulf ports is being
threatened by these artificial conditions. Under normal conditions, the greater part of the naval stores pro-
ducts in Florida would come to Jacksonville and be shipped from its wharves. It is plain to everyone what
this would mean to the business of our city. The discrimination against Jacksonville and other Florida and
Gulf ports is not only a loss to the business of these ports, but it is a heavy burden upon the operator. The
increased cost of transportation elsewhere, and of handling and shipping the product there, falls upon the
man in the woods. If natural conditions were permitted to exist, the product of Florida would find its way
to the nearest port where deep water existed, and Jacksonville and the naval stores producers of Florida
would be the gainers. The same manipulations of prices and diversions of shipments are found in the trade
in the Western Gulf States. Even greater arbitrary differentials are imposed upon the producers of that
section, who are helpless in the grasp of the monopoly which controls the price and distribution of this
product.
In view of these conditions, the Governors of the Board of Trade of Jacksonville feel that the attention
of the members of the Board, of the people of Jacksonville, of the State of Florida, and of the producers of
the entire turpentine belt should be forcibly directed to the situation. Relief cannot be obtained too soon.
Our natural resources are being dissipated and forever lost. The business of the State is being diverted, and
specilative monopolistic power is being used to the permanent injury of every business interest in this and
other Southern States.
RESOLUTIONS AS buisUl-rr-u.
Your Committee, having given the matter careful and serious attention, has therefore formulated the
following resolutions, which are submitted to the Board of Trade of the City of Jacksonville for its earnest
and early consideration. -1
Be It Resolved by the Board of Trade of the City of Jacksonville, Florida, that in the opinion of this
body the facts and conditions above set forth should be immediately brought to the attention of the public
and given the widest publicity. The continuance of the present conditions seriously endanger the future
prosperity of the industry and the development of Florida and other naval stores producing States.
Prompt and vigorous action is necessary to correct these abuses and restore to the industry the beneficial
effects of the law of supply and demand upon prices. A restoration of normal trade conditions and the re-es-
tablishment of competition in the naval stores market will immediately be followed by a rise in prices and the

overthrow of arbitrary discrimination against Florida ports. Land owners, lumber men, turpentine produc-
ers and factors, bankers, wholesale and retail merchants, transportation lines and business men generally are
deeply and vitally concerned in this movement. Whoever has an interest in the development of Florida and
the Gulf States should take this situation to heart. It is the duty of every property owner and business man
in Florida to contribute his personal assistance and financial aid to any movement tending to the relief of
the naval stores business from the oppression of monopoly.
Be It Further Resolved that this Board is of the opinion that relief from the existing conditions can best
be found in the organization, by the business men of this State and elsewhere in the turpentine belt, of a cor-
poration of ample capital to handle, distribute and market naval stores on a commission or brokerage basis.
Such an organization, having branches in the principal markets of Europe and America, will be in immedi-
ate touch with the consumer; and, selling on commission, it would have no incentive to stifle competition
or maintain arbitrary prices in the interest of speculators and monopolies. Such a company would not be
intended to displace legitimate naval stores dealers. Its business could be conducted in harmony with the
present system. But the operation of such a distributing company would continuously and at all times insure
the supremacy of competition as the basis of prices, give equal treatment to natural channels of trade, and
make an end of discrimination against persons and places.
For the purpose of placing these facts and the proposed remedy before the interested public, Be it
Further Resolved, that the President of this Board be and he is hereby authorized and directed to appoint
not less than fifty members of this Board to constitute a Special Committee on Naval Stores, whose duty it
shall be to send copies of these resolutions and preambles to all commercial organizations, banks, turpentine
producers and factors, lumber men, transportation lines, and wholesale and retail merchants in the State of
Florida and the turpentine belt; to confer with all organizations and persons interested in this movement;
to formulate definite plans for the organization of a distributing company; to solicit subscriptions for its
stock; and to report to this Board all of the acts and transactions of such Committee at the earliest possible
moment.
FRAUDULENT PRACTICES PREVAIL.
The adulteration of spirits of turpentine and the false marking and grading of rosin has been for years a
serious injury to the naval stores business. These fraudulent practices prevail extensively among certain
dealers in naval stores, and have reached such proportions as almost to extinguish honest competition. The
adulteration of spirits of turpentine is so easy to accomplish and so difficult to detect that, in spite of local
inspection at the shipping point, almost no spirits of turpentine can be found in the hands of large dealers
and consumers that does not contain a large percentage of adulterants. Although rosin is graded and
marked by local inspectors when sold by the producer, the inspector's marks are afterwards altered to indi-
cate higher grades. The false gauging of spirits of turpentine is another fraudulent practice which extensively
obtains. In the hands of upscrupulous dealers these methods afford a simple and convenient means of mak-
ing money and stifling honest competition. The manipulation of the grade marks of rosin and the adultera-
tion and false gauging of spirits of turpentine is a handicap to legitimate competition which is a serious
drawback to the prosperity of the industry. The system of grading, marking and gauging by local inspectors
at the point of origin has proved to be utterly powerless to prevent such frauds. The jurisdiction of these
officers ceases with their State lines, and the interstate and foreign commerce in these products is wholly
without protection against practices so easy, profitable and safe. As not one per cent of the output of spirits
of turpentine and rosin is sold or consumed in the producing States, it will be seen that the business is prac-
tically entirely interstate and foreign. In the absence of any Federal law on the subject, practically an-
archy prevails. The industry is therefore at the mercy of certain dishonest dealers. The evil effects of such
unlimited and unregulated abuses are manifest. The consumer is defrauded and deceived, and finds it next
to impossible to procure the article which he tries to buy. The producer is obliged to sell pure spirits of tur-
pentine in competition with that which is adulterated. The prices of naval stores are greatly diminished by the
increase in the supply caused by adulteration. Rosin that is made and sold by the producer at certain
grades is put in the hands of the consumer at another and higher grade, which results in cheating the pro-
ducer and defrauding the consumer to enrich a dishonest dealer. The wide-spread extent of these practices
make their prevention impossible without the intervention of the Federal Government. In no other manner
can relief be obtained. Recognizing the existence of these conditions, and the paramount importance of a
radical and efficacious remedy, the Jacksonville Board of Trade does now
Resolve, That the Special Committee on Naval Stores be directed to take up this matter with our Sena-
tors and Representatives in Congress, and, through them, with the Secretary of Agriculture, with a view, if
possible, to secure action by that Department under the Pure Food and Drug Act of Congress looking to the
establishment of a system of inspection of naval stores under that Act, or, if such action cannot be obtained,
then to promote and secure the passage by Congress of an Act to provide for the Federal.inspection of both
turpentine and rosin under methods similar to those in use by the Federal Government in the inspection of
other products, and for the punishment of all adulterations, false gauging and marking; and that, pending
such action by Congress, the Committee on Naval Stores be requested to make such investigation and com-
pile such data and information as will be of service to our Representatives and Senators in Congress in
presenting and urging the passage of such laws.

6 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.


FALSE AND mTIT.1ADnNG STATISTICS.

For many years past the naval stores industry Las suffered from false and misleading 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 dissemination of reliable or trustworthy statistics on the subject. The prices of these
products have been largely affected, if not controlled, by inaccurate reports and misleading estimates of crop
conditions, future production and the amount of stocks on hand. Both producers and consumers have
suffered and continue to suffer by such methods in use by unscrupulous speculators. It is therefore of vital
importance to the industry that accurate statistics be gathered and regularly published, showing the amount
of spirits of turpentine and rosin from time to time produced and in course of production, as well as the
amount of stocks for sale and on storage. This object cannot be effectively or adequately attained without
the aid and supervision of the general government. Having in mind the prime importance of the subject, the
Senators and Representatives from Florida have secured a liberal appropriation by Congress to establish and
carry on the work of gathering and publishing such statistics. The Bureau of Forestry of the Department of
Agriculture, having this work in charge under the Act of Congress of 1908, being about to enter upon this
important work, which deeply concerns the interests of this city and State:
Be It Therefore Resolved by the Board of Trade of the City of Jacksonville, that the special Committee
on Naval Stores be requested to place itself in communication with the Bureau of Forestry for the purpose
of rendering such assistance and making such suggestions as the Committee may deem advisable for the
furtherance of the work of gathering and disseminating such statistics and securing the publication of the
same as promptly as possible, and to lay before such Department and urge the adoption of such measures as
in the opinion of the Committee will best promote the usefulness and efficiency of such service and secure
the prompt dissemination of the reports of the Department through this Board and other commercial
bodies, and to this end to request the aid and co-operation of our Senators and Representatives in Congress.

Ignored the Text.
It will be noted, Mr. Editor, that the
article in the Savannah paper states that
a cartoon published in a Jacksonville
newspaper several weeks ago prompted
Mr. Purse, secretary of the Savannah
Board of Trade, to compare statistics of
the two ports. The News' article states
that "Cold figures tell an entirely differ-
ent story from the impression left by the
cartoon."
Now, I regret to say that the gentle-
man holding the honorable position of
secretary of the Savannah Board of Trade
has not stuck to the text conveyed by
that cartCI n. He lhas ilt. stuck to official

ing June, 1908, under the direction of
Lient. ('ol. Iansing H. Beach, Corps of En- 1
gineers, United States army, by F. W.
Bruce, assistant engineer.
The map contains an explanatory note I
as follows: "Figures show depth on mean I
low tide. Rise of tide at the end of the c
jetties, five feet. Rise of tide at Mayport
4.3 feet." I
St. Johns Is the Deeper.
Front these official figures it will be :
seen that at the present time Jacksonville
has an average depth from the city to the
sea at mean low water of three feet more
than Savannah.
For years the Savannah newspaper and
the shipping interests of Savannah have
Ieen crowing over the superior advantage
possessed by the port of Savannah, as a
shipping port for naval stores, cotton and
various other products.
It will no doubt be an eye-opener to
those who have read these claims and
given them credence to learn that the offi-
eial figures furnished by the government
engineers show that Jacksonville has a
depth of three feet more than Savannah
at mean low water between the city and
the sea.
At low water on the bar at the mouth
of the river there is a difference of three
feet in favor of the St. Johns river over
the Savannah river. At high water the
depth of the two rivers is the same, owing
tea greater variation in the rise and fall
of the tides in the Savannah river.
It will be noted that the Times-Union
claims that these figures were taken from
the official reports of the United States
Engineers in charge of the improvements
on the Savannah and the St. Johns river,
respectively.
There is nothing in the Times-Union
article, nor was there anything in the
cartoon in the Metropolis, that attempted
even to insinuate that the commerce of
Jacksonville equalled that of Savannah
or that it canme any where near it.
The Times-Union article contained the
following, showing that as it was now
established by official records that the
port of Jaeksonville offered equal advan-
tages to the lXwt of Savannah it was time
that steps be taken to secure a position of
the commerce that rightfully belongs to
Jacksonville, but which at present is go-
ing through the port of Savannah.
Will Bring Business.
These figures, being official and not
estimates, will serve shortly to encourage
the naval stores operators of Florida to

Figures Are Official.
The alove figures are taken from official
reports. the report on the Savannah river
being publishedl in the Savannah Morn-
ing News last Wednesday as compiled
from the official report of Col. Dan. C.
Kingman, of the corps of engineers con-
cerning the work done by the government
on the Savannah harbor project during
the lis-al year ending June 30, 1908.
The figures concerning the St. Johns
river and bar are taken from the aceomn-
paiying map showing the entrance to tlhe
St. Johns river from a survey made dur-


of a great distributing company, whose
principal object will be to have Florida
products handled through Florida ports,
for it will show them in a most convinc-
ing manner that there is ample water here
now to float any vessel that can enter and
sail from the port of Savannah.
These figures should do much to bring
about the organization of the great Sea
Island (otton Warehouse and Export
Company which is to have its headquar-
ters in Jacksonville and ship to all parts
of the world from the port of Jackson-
ville."
Ignoring this statement of why the offi-
cial figures were published and a compari-
son drawn. te Savannah News' article
quotes the secretary of the Savannah
IHoard of Trade as saying:
Superiority in Other Respects.
"Fronm general knowledge and what I
have learned inuce making this investi-


nation I find that Savannah's harbor is
ar superior to that of Jacksonville in
several ways which cannot be shown by
gures," said Mr. Purse. "One very ma-
ortant feature is that the harbor there
as a bottom of rocky patches and danger-
us to vessels of deep draught.
"For that reason a vessel drawing near-
y as many feet as the depth of the water
cannot safely go out there. If it should
trike bottom it would tear a hole in the
easel. If it should strike bottom here it
rould merely scrape in the mud. For this
eason vessels of greater depth in proper-
ion can be handled here. This may be*
ne of the reasons that vessels never leave
be Jacksonville harbor at night.
"Jacksonville has poor acommodations
or taking care of vessels after they get
here, as their terminal facilities are not
early as good as ours. Savannah also
ias the advantage of railroad terminals,
ut Jacksonville has not. We also have
fleet of tugs ample to take care of the
large volume of shipping and shippers
ay they do not have as good service there
is they do here.
"Anything in the line of barnacles cer-
ainly thrive in the Jacksonville harbor,
because the water is briny and they grow
with wonderful rapidity. It is also dan-
gerous water to put in boilers. With the
fresh water in Savannah river barnacles
get a big backset when ships remain in
port here two or three weeks and the
water is the best in the world for boilers.
In fact the Savannah harbor is better in
every way that Jacksonville and shippers
have shown their preference for it, as
shown by the statistics recently com-
piled."
Ignored Coastwiae Business.
I wish to remind you that the secretary
of the Savannah Board of Trade has con-
fined himself entirely to custom house re-
cords as to tonnage of vessels for the
calendar year, and for the value of cargoes.
Since the first of January, 1907, there
has been no record of coastwise move-
ments of vessels kept in the custom houses
of the United States. It is a well known
fact that Jacksonville's foreign business
has been very small up to the present
time, and it should also be remembered
that the twenty-four-foot channel to the
sea was not completed before the end of
1907, which includes the year referred to
In the statement made by the Savannah
"booster."
The statements made in the Savannah
paper relative to the depth of water in
the river and on the bar are not borne out
by by the official reports made by Col.
Kingman, United States Engineer in
charge of the Savannah river improve-
nient work. The figures published last
Sunday do not give the official results of
surveys made by the United States En-
gineers and published in the Savannah
Morning News last July.
Should Be Iavestigated.
The whole matter, Mr. Editor, appears
to me to be a piece of spite work or jeal-
ousy.
Now, I suggest, Mr. Editor, that the
communication in the Savannah News be
made the subject of an investigation by
the Board of Governor of the Jacksonville
Board of Trade, and that the Board of
governorss be requested to prepare a re-
pirt upon the same and request the pub-
lication of the report in the Savannah
Morning News as well as in the daily
newspapers of Jacksonville.

THE 2CODy OWrICMES.
The publishing plant sad the main of-

are located at the intersection of Bay and
NeVnan Streets, Jacksonville, Fla., in the
very heart of the great turpentine and

Mr. Walter F. Coachman is a brother-in-
law to Mr. C. B. Rogers.

The Record is informed that very
drastic steps are soon to be taken to en-
force a reduced box cut.

Will the Shotter organ have just
a little of a tangible character to say
about the new marketing company organ-
izing here?

The Shotter organ says that "Jackson-
ville is a supurb little city." Yes, just
what Savannah was about three years ago.
We grow over here.

It's a gamble that Mr. Thos. Gamble,
Jr., "got his" before a copy of his last
issue was mailed to every operator and
woodsrider in the naval stores belt. Good
circulation if it would but last.

Will the Shotier organ please keep
the operators posted as to the exact
date when the trial of the once convicted
and again charged conspirators against
the interests of the operators is to take
place? That trial will be held in Savan-
nah, the same place where the accused
plead guilty and promised to be good the
last time they stood under the shadow of
the whiskers of Uncle Samuel. This be-
ing the case the Review ought to be in a
position to give out the exact dates. Has
the Naval Stores Review or the ,notLer
interests applied for excursion rates, or
must that be done from the Jacksonville
end.?


The Organ of Shotter Asked to Give Views of

Its Masters on the New Marketing

Company Now Organizing.


The issue of the Weekly Naval Stores
Review and Journal of Trade, the Shotter
organ published in Savannah, for Septem-
ber 12 has as its leading article to interest
the naval stores operators a gratuitous re-
ference to Jacksonville, highly complimen-
tary, together with the commendable ef-
forts of the factorage houses of Jackson-
ville to maintain the prestige of the city
as a naval stores port and market, all very
cleverly (?) related to what it has been
asked to say by the Shotter interests
about the new marketing company organ-
izing in Jacksonville, Florida, and through-
out the entire naval stores belt.
The article is on the first page of the
news section of the highly entertaining
publication and under the Iaption: "Coach-
man Leads the Movenient."
And with it all it, gives out the knowl-
edge that Mr. C. B. Rogers is a brother-in-
law of Mr. Walter F. Coachman. This last,
intended to give out information to the
operators is repeated several times in the
course of the article in question, and to a
great many operators, it is the only piece
of news contained in the entire diatribe,
for in their business relations with either
of the gentlemen in question, operators
have never seen a necessity of informing
themselves as to the relationship which
the Shotter organ appear to regard as
being of such great importance.
But the Shotter organ, despite its claims,
is not honest nor sincere in its declarations
nor its pretended desire to give to the
operators all the information which every
operator should have.
In this article the Shotter organ has, in
its effort to serve its bosses and prejudice
the operator, referred at length to past
history. Mr. Walter F. Coachman has been
elassed as the man who led the movement
against the Shotter interests in the past,
a movement which redounded to such
great benefit to the operator. In fact this
imrt of the history of the past in naval
stores circles is by the Review elaborate-
ly commented upon.
BUT NOT ONE WORD OF WHAT
TRANSPIRED IN A CERTAIN UNITED
STATES COURT, WHEN THE DICTA-
TORS OF THE POLICY OF TIE
SIOTTER ORGAN PLEAD GUILTY TO
A CRIME AGAINST THE UNITED
STATES, PAID THEIR FINE, PROMISED
TO BE GOOD AND GO AND SIN NO
MORE, appears in the entire article.

TIES WHt) PLEAD GUILTY TO ROB-

tails, exceedingly silly and stupid in
others, arranged for the perusal of the
,iwrators throughout the belt.
But the Shotter organ, a rather sickly
looking little sheet, with nothing to com-
mend it to the operator, appears to have
secured its rake-off from its masters in
this instance. If not, it is its own fault,
for this is the first time that this paper
has lwen sent broadcast to every operator,
woodls-rider and distiller that we are
aware of. That it has been done in this
case is certain. Opirators throughout the
belt will bear us out in that.
Since the Shotter organ has bwen sent
broadcast throughout the naval stores belt
for the purpose of having this article re-
ferred to read, would it not be a pretty
good idea for that paper in its next issue
to say something of a definite character
for or against this new marketing com-
pany. The operator would like to have
this paper's views. They know that it re-
fleets the opinions anm desires of the
Shotter interests. Operators would like to
know how those convicted of conspiring
against them and under indictment for a
repetition of the same offense regard this
movement. There is nothing in the
Shotter organ to enlighten them along this
line.
We need not remind the Shotter organ
that the operator of today is better posted
than lie was a few years back. Both the
United States court and the general
progress of the times is responsible for
this. If the Shotter organ has any-
thing to say in the shape of argument for
its masters, the Shotters, The Record
would be as much pleased to have them
come to the front just as we have been
pleased, amused and entertained by the
silly attempt appearing in the issue of
that publication of September 12, to be-
little the new marketing company, which
company is just as sure of success as the
Shotter interests were sure of conviction
when they pleaded guilty in the United
States court and asked for and received
mercy.

THE WEEK'S MARKET.
It is interesting to note the trend of the
fluctuations in the turpentine and rosin
markets in Savannah and Jacksonville,
and for purposes of easy comparison, the
following is compiled:
Rosin.
On Saturday last both markets were the
samns on all grades, and this condition
continued on Monday except in one in-
stance as Jacksonville quoted 21/ cents
higher on "F" than did Savannah.

Spirits.
The market quotations on spirits were
very steady all during the week, 351/, be--
ing the price in both markets every day
except Saturday when Jacksonville report-
ed no sales, and Savannah reported 36
cents and, on Monday, Savannah reported
1/4 cent higher.
The Record for the corresponding week
in 1907 said:
"The price of spirits fluctuated this week
between 51 and 52 cents per gallon both
here and at Savannah. It is evident that
those who are manipulating the market
will be able to hold it down to this low
level for sonie time. Rosins are practical-
ly unchanged from last week."
The lowest quotations for that week be-
ing 51 cents. We might well use the ex-
pression, "It is evident that those who are
manipulating the market will be able to
hold it down to this low level for some
time" for this week, UNLESS THE
NAVAL STORES MARKETING COM-
PANY is started at once. There is our
hope and it behooves every turpentine man
who wants GOOD MONEY for his crops to
be up and doing, and give the Marketing
Company every assistance in his power.

TO BOND FOR THE ROADS
At a recent conference of representa-
tives of the Boards of Trade of Jackson-
ville, Palatka, Green Cove Springs and
Orange Park held for the purpose of pro-
moting the construction of good roads,
plans and estimates were submitted
showing that a sufficient amount of bonds
can be issued and interest paid regularly
and the principal paid at intervals after
fliteen years, without increasing the pres-
ent tax rate or imposing any additional
burden upon the people, yet giving them
immediately the benefits to be derived
from the proposed improvements. The
bridging of the St. Johns river and the
building of a hard road to Hastings to
connect with the road being built in that
direction from St. Augustine and the
completion of the road from Jacksonville
to St. Augustine will, in connection with
the direct road from Jacksonville to Pa-
latka, make a loop of some 140 miles,
connecting the points named.

Annual Convention of the


Turpentine Operators' Association,



To Be Held in Jacksonville, Fla.,
October 14th and 15th Inclusive. 1908


To all Producers of Naval Stores:
i*
The annual convention of the Turpentine Operators' Association is hereby called to meet in the Board
of Trade auditorium, Jacksonville, ila., Wednesday and Thursday, October 14th. and 15th., 1908. 'i he scs- -
sion will begin promptly at 10 o'clock a. ii., i.nd 2:30 o'clock p. m.
This convention will be in many respects the most important ever held by this Association. It is recalled
that the Turpentine Operators' Association was born during the dark (lays of 1901, when turpentine and rosin I
were selling below the cost of production, and when the operators were disorganized so completely that there
Swas no united effort at any point along the line. The Association was born of necessity. The most prosperous
* days ever known by turpentine producers followed the organization of this Association seven years ago.
For reasons well known to most operators, dark days have come upon us again. Such a period of depression
has not before been felt in years, and without specific reference to the cause or the remedy in this official call,
it is sufficient to say there is a remedy and the salvation of the industry means that all operators must see it
and heed it.
SIt is hoped that every operator in the yellow pine belt, whether he has ever been aligned with this
Association or not, will attend the forthcoming meeting and take active and conscientious part in its delibera-
tions. In unison there is strength. If operators in the days of their greatest prosperity had not neglected
their organization, conditions would have been different today.
We want every person, who is interested in the naval stores industry, to attend the convention in Oe-
& tober and become strongly and firmly allied with this organization.
SThe complete program will be announced in due time in the columns of the Industrial Record.

COTTONSEED OIL TO BE SOLD BY
WEIGHT.
It is seldom that a plan suddenly pro-
posed for the distribution of a staple line
of goods involving a radical change from
old established methods meets with
prompt approval and ratification, but we
are enabled to announce that the propo-
sition to sell cottonseed oil by weight in-
stead as always heretofore by measure
has already been adopted.
Only a few weeks ago the agitation for
a change was started and the Reporter
printed the views of a number of the lead-
ing crushers, refiners and operators upon
the subject. There seemed but little to
choose between the arguments advanced
by both sides, but the preponderance of
opinion was largely in favor of the sell-
ing by weight.
Usually in matters of this kind it takes
a long time to effect a change, but the
advocates for reform were evidently so
numerous and so earnest that the present
instance will form a precedent for what
can be done in a hurry if the interested
parties are really sincere and energetic in
their efforts.-Oil, Paint and Drug Re-
porter.

HOW ADVERTISING PAYS.
Baltimore, Md., Sept. 18.-Chief En-
gineer Calvin W. Hendrick of the Sewer-
age Commission, says that sewerage con-
struction in this city has been done with
a remarkable degree of economy, and the
reason for it is that by advertising the
city has received bids from many of the
biggest construction concerns in the coun-
try. "We advertise for bids on separate
sections, and in this way receive them not


only from the biggest contractors but from
small ones as well. A man or a company
may bid on one section or he may bid on
several. When a company has its bids
for several sections accepted it makes it
worth while for the concern to move a big
plant here. This is the case with the Con-
nelly Construction Company of Cleveland,
which was awarded the contract for three
sections of the outfall sewer. It moved
a big plant here, and the magnitude of the
work it was to do justified it in bringing
here three or four locomotives, several
cars and other equipment, as well as four
miles of track, which it has laid at Back
River."

cheap, and there is no reason why the price of stills should not be reduced con-
siderably. Naval stores are at a very low price, and I have decided to put the
price of stills in keeping with same. Watch this space for my price list, which
will be published later on. In the meantime if you are in the market for any-
thing in the still line, ask me for prices, F. O. B. your railroad station. If I
do not sell you what you want, I will make someone else sell you cheap. My
specialty is closely riveted stills, with heavy bottoms, high orowns, large
spouts, extra large worms and above all, stills that are guaranteed not to
leak. Drop our nearest shop a line, or wire us for your wants. Ask for our
booklet of testimonials.

16 TTTE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.



|Do You Take the Record?

If you do not, you are failing to read and be profited by
one of the strongest champions the "man in the woods"
has ever had in the newspaper or trade journal field. For
six years, the Industrial Record has stood on the firing
line in the interest of the producers of naval stores. How
well it has done its work every constant reader of the
paper can tell, "It has been worth hundreds of thousands
of dollars to the operators" wrote one friend to us. We hope
so. Of the past, however, let others speak. The future is
before us, and it means that the Record must keep its place
behind the guns. We shall not flinch.
All we ask you to do, and do it now, please send the
paper $3.00 for one year's subscription. It takes several
thousand dollars a year to run the Record. We want
you--you who are reading these lines to do your share--
will you do it?
Sincerely yours,
JAMES A. HOLLOMON, Editor.

Enclosed please find $3.00, for which please send
me the Industrial Record one year from date.

Note---If you are already taking the Record and are in arrears, kindly enclose
the amount of your arrearage. We need it.

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 MeMILIAN 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.
These goods are in your reach from Fayetteville, N. C, Savanna, Ga., Jackson-
ville, Fla., and Mobile, Ala.
