Was Kerosene Used to Adulterate Spirits?


President Carson, of Savannah Board of Trade, Dmands an Investigation.

Col. W. M. Toomer Gives a Few Facts In Relation to

the Charges, and Scores Mr. Carson.


The following letter, relative to the
charges that 25,000 barrels of kerosene
oil were used in adulteration of the Amer-
ican crop of turpentine during the year
ending April 1, 1908, will be of interest
to every person connected with the naval
stores industry in the yellow pine belt:
Savannah, Ga., Sept. 26, 1908.-Hon,
James Wilson, Secretary of Agriculture,
Washington, D. C.: Dear Sir-At a meet-
ing of the Jacksonville (Florida) Board of
Trade, held on September 16, 1908, it was
alleged by a certain committeeman that
"the American crop of turpentine for the
turpentine year ending April 1. 1908, was
adulterated with not less than 23,000 bar-
bels of kerosene oil, costing from 7 to
10 cents a gallon."
This statement has been give great
publicity, and is calculated to be ex-
tremely harmful to the naval stores in-
dustry, unless disproved at once. If con-
sumers and dealers have doubts about
the purity of the stocks of turpentine now
held in the South, it will cause a delay
in purchasing and result disastrously to
values.
We understand that the American Naval
Stores Company of this city has recently
requested that a searching investigation
be made regarding the purity of spirits of
turpentine held in stock at the primary
markets in the South, as well as the vari-
ous distributing centers in the North and
West.
The Savannah Board of Trade desires
to second this request, and to urge that it
be made as promptly as possible, especia-l
ly with regard -to the stock of turpentine
held in Savannah.
It is not the province of the Savannah
Board of Trade to speak for Jacksonville,
nor to try to controvert the statement
made by a member of the Jacksonville
Board of Trade, except so far as it con-
cerns Savannah's stock of turpentine, but
this institution is satisfied that th- state-
ment referred to has no foundation in fact.
In the interest of the industry no time
should be lost in a thorough investigation
to prove the truth or falsity of said state-
ment.
We suggest the investigation include the
stocks in the primary ports of receipt
from Wilmington to New Orleans. and
as the Standard Oil Company and the
American Naval Stores Company are so
largely interested, being the largest dis-
tributors in the North and West, their
stocks would probably be carefully opened


for your investigation.
The Savannah Board of Trade will fur-
ther request that at the end of your in-
vestigation you will furnish it a properly
certified statement of the result.
Respectfully,
SAVANNAH BOARD OF TRADE,
By J. A. (arson, President.
Col. Toomer's Letter..
''Jacksonville, Fla., Sept. 29. 1908.Hon.
James Wilson. Secretary of Agriculture,
Washington, D. C.: Dear Sir-I have had
my attention directed to a letter dated
September 261. 1908. addressed to you by
Mr. .1. A. G. Carson, president Savannah
Board of Trade. protesting against a state-
ment made before the Jacksonville Board
of Trade in substance to the effect that
there was approximately 6 per cent adul-
teration of the spirits of turpentine crop
for the naval stores year, April 1, 1907,
to April 1, 1908. That this letter was
designated chiefly for publicity and to
serve a purlpose more partisan and rep-
rehensible as I shall demonstrate, is man-
ifest for two reasons:
"First-A copy of this letter appeared
in the Savannah Morning News before it
reached you: on the 28th inst., a copy
appeared in the Jacksonville Times-Union
under statement by that paper that the
copy was furnished by Mr. J. A. G. Car-
son, with the request that it be published.
"Second-The author of the letter knew,
or with the exercise of ordinary diligence
could have ascertained that the Depart-
ment of Agriculture had been for some
time engaged with the aid of those really
interested in the naval stores industry,
in making this very investigation, and
further, that the Department of Justice
has had and now has this particular mat-
ter under consideration.
"The apparent sensitiveness of this Mr.
. A. G. (arson to the suggestion that
there had been adulterations to the Amer-
ican crop of turpentine makes it necessary
that the Department of Agriculture, and
the naval stores industry as well. should
understand that the following are the
facts:
Statement Substantially Truc.
"It will be assumed that the statements
in the Jacksonville Board of Trade in
reference to adulterations were made in
the first instance because they were sub-
stantially true, and further chiefly as

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:
0 The annual convention of the Turpentine Operators' Association is hereby called to meet in the Board
of Trade auditorium, Jacksonville, Fla., Wednesday and Thursday, October 14th. and 15th., 1908. The ses-
sion will begin promptly at 10 o'clock a. in., -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 days of 1901, when turpentine and rosin
were selling below the cost of production, and when the operators were disorganized so completely that there
was 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.
q It 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 Oc-
tober and become strongly and firmly allied with this organization.
The complete program will be announced in due time in the columns of the Industrial Record.
(Signed) g.LJ. G. BOYD, President,
JAS. A. HOLLOMON, Secretary.
Jacksonville, Fla., Sept. 18th., 1908.

I have read his public contributions to the
defense of the American Naval Stores
Company and to the undoing of the naval
stores industry so frequently that I now
feel convinced that public justice and the
proprieties of the situation make it en-
tirely proper that some one in his favorite
forum, the public prints, should unmask
him. I deem it dangerous to follow any
precedent which he has established, but
will incur the criticism of doing so to the
extent of making this letter public.

A CLOSER UNION.

Objects of the Meeting of the Conservation
Commission In Washington.
Washington, Oct. 2.-The National
Conservation Commission has received
word that at least a thousand of the lead-
ing business men of the South will be
present in Washington when the Com-
mission holds its first full meeting here
early in December. This information
comes in a letter from G. Grosvenor
Dawes, secretary of the Montgomery
(Ala.) Commercial Club, who tells of a
meeting of the representatives of numer-
ous business associations in the Southern
States, held in Atlanta. These men form-
ed a working organization, and, after re-
ceiving assurances of support from com-
mercial bodies all through the South issued
a call for a Southern Commercial Con-
gress. The time and place were set so
that the members can be in Washington
during the first meeting of the Conserva-
tion Commission on December 1, the Con-


ference between the Commission and the
Governors of the States or their repre-
sentatives which follows, on December 8,
and the meeting of the National Rivers
and Harbors Congress which will be held
here during that time, in the proceedings
of all of which the men who will compose
the Southern Commercial Congress are in-
tensely interested from a business .itand-
point.
The chief purpose of the Southerners in
holding their big meeting is, in the words
of one of the originators, "the provoking
of a fuller understanding by the people of
the south of the gifts that nature has
placed under their control." But, without
discounting the vital importance of pro-
moting the business interests of their sec-
tion of the country, the promoters of this
Congress in Washington say they hope
that it will have an even deeper signifi-
cance and bring about a closer union be-
tween the North and South. "Of course
the Congress has practical and commercial
aspects," says one of these men, "but there
lies in the minds of the originators an
ethical purpose looking towards a fuller
understanding and union between those
who have for a generation suffered from
misunderstandings and a seeming separa-
tion of interests."
Mr. Dawes, in his letter, suggests that
the attainment of fuller understanding
between the South and other parts of the
country would have its effect in bettering
business conditions in the South also. He
writes:
"The Southern Commercial Congress is
also intended as a means of combating
hindering prejudices that exist against the
South in both Northern and Eastern


States. We have felt that such prejudices
are most easily removed by personal. en-
tact, and we shall therefore work to have
present on December 7 and 8 a thousand,
or 1,500 leading business men of the
South who will later stay to participate in
the deliberations of the National Rivers
and Harbors Congress, and also be present
in Washington to receive inspiration from
the reports made to the National Con-
servation Commission."
"Beyond all this we feel that the pre-
sence of our solid business men in meet-
ings made up largely of solid business
men of the North and East will act as a
guarantee and pledge of business men's
participation in further political affairs
of the South and thus guarantee safety to
investors."
Many of the men who are most active

PRACTICAL FORESTRY.
In celebration of the twentieth anniver-
sary of forest practice at Biltmore, N. C.,
and of the tenth anniversary of the forest
school there. Dr. C. A. Schenck, who has
successfully demonstrated the possibilities
of forestry in this country, has extended
an invitation to lawmakers, lumbermen,
engineers and foresters to inspect the Bilt-
more farms and forests for two or three
days in Thanksgiving week. The program
includes an inspection of forest planations
replanted in white pine, yellow pine and
hardwoods, of natural second growth yel-
low pine showing results of forestry
methods, of the herbarium nurseries, of
plantations of pine, locust, cherry, walnut,
sugar maple, etc., and of scientific and
economic logging operations. As Dr.
Sehenck points out, the visitors will thus
have an opportunity to study the various
phases of practical forestry the results of
reforestation on fields once abandoned by
farmers and the forests in all their stages,
from the embryos planted this year up to
the primeval trees older than American
civilization. The celebration ought to re-
sult in a marked advance in the movement
toward forest conservation and restoration
in this country-a movement that should
be maintained until every worn-out acre
has been reclaimed with woodland, until
lumbering operations everywhere are con-
ducted upon the principle of preserving the
forests as a perpetual source of wealth
and until protection has been assured to
the headsprings of America's river
systems.

TIMBER MARKET IMPROVEMEHT...
Pensacola, Oct. 2.-According to local ex-
porters the lumber and timber market in
foreign countries is showing considerable
improvement, and it is the belief that the
dullness which has prevailed at exporting
points along the gulf coast, is now nearing
an end. The local timber market has ad-
vanced to 231/2 and 24 cents per foot on
averages of thirty feet and upon a 40-foot
basis, while smaller averages are bringing
corresponding prices. The market for
many months has been an ineffective one
with low prices. With increased demand
many of the small mills which closed down
several months ago will resume operations.

NOTICE OF STOCKHOLDERS' MEETING
Notice is hereby given that a meeting
of the stockholders of Fairfield Lumber
Company will be held on Monday, October
26th, 1908, at the office of the company at
Fairfield, near city of Jacksonville, Fla.,
to consider an increase in the capital stock
of the corporation, an amendment to the
charter increasing the limit of indebted-
ness that may be incurred, and changes in
the By-Laws of the corporation.

Hot Shot from Hamburg

On Market Manipulation.

Some Facts That Will Be of Interest to the Turpentine

Operators and All Others.


From one of the largest and best known
wholesale naval stores dealers of
Europe, located at Hamburg. Germany,
the Industrial Record received the follow-
ing letter giving some of the inside facts
relative to the manner in which the Shot-
ter interests are manipulating the tur-
pentine market in Europe. The original
letter, signed with the name of the deal-
er, is held by the Record, but there has
not been sufficient time to obtain permis-
sion to publish the signature. The letter
follows:
Hamburg, Germany, Sept. 18, 1908.
To the Industrial Record,
Jacksonville, Fla., U. S. A.:
Taking it for granted that the figures
published by the Wcekly Naval Stores
Review, of Savannah, Ga., are correct re-
garding the stocks of turpentine on Sep-
tember 4, I find, nevertheless that the
explanations given in that publication are
absolutely, and, I presume, knowingly
wrong. It is true that London has a
stock of about 50,000 barrels of turpen-
tine, and this fact proves that the Amer-
ican Naval Stores Ctompany is playing the
same trick on the turpentine consuming
world as was done by that company last
year.
Mr. Shotter knows very well that these
stocks in London are posted all over
Europe, and that large stocks in London
create the belief in the consuming world
that there are tremendous quantities of
turpentine lying in stock all over the
world. In other words; Last year Shotter
sent large quantities of turpentine to
London in order to depress the market in
the whole of Europe. Now, we know that
during last year, as well as during this
year, other warehousing-centers of tur-
pentine, such as Liverpool, Bristol, Glas-
gow, Rotterdam and Hamburg, were al-
most bare of any stocks of turpentine. In
fact, Hamburg was at times so bare that
the stock ran down at times below 2,000
barrels, and the American Naval Stores
Company had to buy here large quantities
in order to fulfill their contracts, while
they had large stocks in London which
were not required there. In other words,
they had an abundance of turpentine in
London, and were hard up for turpentine
here.
Now, would it not set any man think-
ing, who knows that Shotter is very well
acquainted with the requirements of the
various markets, and would not that man
conclude that there exists a sinister mo-
tive to bring about this state of affairs?
While London has a stock of 50,000 bar-
rels of turpentine, Liverpool, Glasgow,
Bristol and the other ports of the United
Kingdom have hardly any turpentine at
all. The stock in Rotterdam is about 2,-
000 barrels, and in Hamburg the stock is
between 7,000 and 8,000 barrels in all.
In 1907, up until the 17th of September,
29.0C0 barrels of turpentine had been
landed in Hamburg. During the same
period this year 42.02g barrels have been
imported and the whole stock now here is
between 7,000 and 8,000 barrels. There
are no stocks in the interior of Germany,


to .ipak of, and, therefore these quanti-
ties of turpentine have passed over into
the hands of consumers.
It is more than ignorance when Shot-
ter, through his mouthpiece, tries to make
the world believe that the stocks of tur-
Iwntine are exceptionally larger than in
former times. This was not by any means
proven by the article 1 refer to. On the
contrary the article proves nothing more
or less than that there is a hand working
behind the scenes who. for motives well
known to me, tries to throw dust into oth-
er Ipople's eyes. Even the very statement
that the consumption has diminished this
year materially in comparison with form-
er years, is contrary to the actual facts.
The deliveries in London as well as Ham-
burg, the two principal centers of distri-
bution of turpentine, are hardly varying
from former years. In Hamburg they
have even materially increased, as proven
by the above figures.
The reason why the stocks in Jackson-
ville and Savannah are so large I put down
to the fact that the turpentine is not held
like in former years by the big interests,
but by other parties who have no capacity
for distributing these stocks over the
consuming world. (Should Shotter hold
the largest part of these stocks, then his
intention is, no doubt, to make it appear
as if the demand for turpentine had fal-
len off to such extent that he had been
unable to distribute it. As before men-
tioned, this is not true, since, with the
exception of London, the stocks in the
various consuming centers are smaller
than in former years.)
The only difference between other times
and the present is that turpentine is now
no longer bought in regular intervals, ac-


cording to the demand of the consuming
world, but the consuming world have,
through the methods of the big interests,
changed their tactics in buying. While
in former times they used to buy according
to their requirements without regard to
the actual state of the market, covering
the raw material on the basis of the
price obtained for their manufactured
goods for forward delivery without cov-
Pring for their turps, knowing that the
big interests are bearing the market, and
thus hoping to be able to buy cheaper
later on. Whenever there is an improve-
nent in the turpentine market then the
consumers come forward, and cover part
of their requirements, but they are doing
that very hesitatingly, since they are well
aware that their purchases are used by the
big interests only further to depress the
market at Savannah.
I am in a lupsition to prove, not only
through one but through many instances,
that while the market in Savannah was
firm and advancing, the American NavaL
Stores Company red.iced their price here
in order to prevent the consumers from
stepping into the market and buying.
There is no doubt whatever that the prices
for turpentine would Iw on a considerably
higher level if the big interests had not,
time and time o. r, made every effort to
stay the natural demand, when it did not
suit them that the consumers should buy.
Thus it has come about that the big
interests have lined up almost the whole
of the consuming world of turpentine with
their own tactics, and have thus obtained
a power which they have used in a way
which must it, ruinous to the producers
of turlpntine. But the consumers will
also have to suffer in the end for follow-
ing up the big interests' tactics the very
minute when it pleases the latter to
change their tactics by putting the bear
on the shelf and taking down the bull.
I shall be glad to give you further news
on this subject, and remain, dear sirs,
Yours very truly,

Although the supply of timler is limited
and constantly decreasing, and although
the demand for this product is annually
increasing, the price of naval stores has
steadily declined. All the conditions sur-
rounding the present market Ioint 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 ex-
lporters, and are destined to deprive the
producer of even a modest profit.'
The reasons for Iblieving manipulation,
antl not the working of the laws of supply
and demand, has brought about this condi-
tions are gone into at length. Finally the
resolutions are submitted, one of which
was quoted above.
"Amnong other matters considered in this
report are the :ululteration of spirits of
turpentine and the false marking and
grading of rosin, which, it says, has been
for years a serious injury to the naval
stores business, making it practically im-
iossible for the honest producer to comn-
pete with the fraudulent dealer. False
gauging is another evil pointed out. To
combat these bad practices it is urged that
the national government should extend
the pure food and drug act so as to cover
naval stores and a resolution was adopted
providing that the board of trade's special
committee on naval stores should take up
this matter with senators and representa-
tives in Congress and with the secretary
of agriculture. Also it was provided that
co-operation should be sought with the
bureau of forestry for the securing of
reliable statistics on the business. In re-
gard to this point the report says:
"For many years past the naval stores
industry has suffered from false and mis-
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-
ucts have been largely affected, if not con-
trolled. by inaccurate reports and mis-
leading estimates of crop conditions, fut-
ure production aml the amount of stocks
on hand. Both producers and consumers
have suffered and continue to suffer by such
methods in use by unscrupulous speculat-
o0s. It is therefore of vital importance
to the industry that accurate statistics
be gathered and regularly published
showing the amount of spirits of turpen-
tine and rosin front time to time produced
and in course of production. as well as
the amount of stocks for sale and on ex-
change."
"The outcome of this matter has been
Sthe organization of a company whose oh
Sject is to save a great industry from de
moralization, if not ruin, and to promote
conditions which will permit an honest

THE RECORD'S 01ICO CS
The publishing plant and the main of-
fices of the Industrial Record Company
are located at the intersection of Bay and
Newnan Streets, Jacksonville, Fla, in the
very heart of the great turpentine and
yellow pine industries.

NOTICE TO PATRONS.
All payments for advertising in the In-
dustrial Record and subscriptions thereto
must be made direct to the home office in
Jacksonville. Agents are not allowed to
make collections under any circumstances
Bills for advertising and subscriptions are
sent out from the home office, when due,
and all remittances must be made direct
to this company.
Industrial Record Publishing Co.

MUST REDUCE BOX CUT.
Again the Industrial Record wishes to
impress upon the turpentine operators
throughout the yellow pine belt the im-
portance of reducing the box cut. While
considerable progress is being made in the
organization of the new Naval Stores
Marketing Company, the operators must
realize that it will take some time for
this company to get into shape for the
transaction of business. The only remedy
for the present condition of the turpentine
market that lies in the power to the
operators is a reduction of the box cut.
The operators will meet in annual con-
vention in Jacksonville October 14 and
15, and at that time it is expected that
the matter will be put before them in
such manner that they will seic that unless
they reduce the box cut at least one-half
during the coining season they can expect
no improvement in prices for some time to
come.
Several communications have been re-
ceived from operators urging that not a
single box ~ le cut luring the coming sea-
son. Some gosl reasons are given for this
stand, but while it may lIs impractical
for all operators to stop olwration entire-
ly. it is not impractical for men to reduce
the cut one-half of the present year's cut.
Every olprator should give this matter
his ebrhest attention and come to the
meeting of the Turpentine operators '
Association preparedl to pledge himself to
cut only one-half as many Iboxes this sea-
son as Ihe cut last season. Then let them
go home and stick to the pledge.


That Alleged Adulteration.


President Carson, of tlhe Savannah Board will no doubt sit back and say "I told you


of Trade, is so badly worried over the re-
lort that the American crop of turpentine
for the year ending April 1, O190, was
adulterated with not less than 20,000 bar-
rels of kerosene oil, that he has called
upon the Secretary of Agriculture to order
an investigation of the charges.
The Industrial Record stated last week
that the committee of the Jacksonville
loard of Trade, making this charge, would
not have made such a charge unless it had
had the proof.
Now comes ('ol. W. M. Toomer, whom is
is well known is a special assistant United
States attorney, to whom has been assign-
ed the prosecution of the charges against
the American Naval Stores Company et.
al.. for alleged violation of the anti-trust
law, and also writes a letter to the Secre-
tary of Agriculture, in which he states
that not only has the Department of Ag-
riculture been for some time engaged in
making this very investigation, but that
tnl DIepartment of Justice has had, and
now has, this particular matter unaer
consideration.
So. it will be seen that the two de-
partments of the government knew of the
allegations concerning the adulterations
of spirits of turpentine, even before the
statement made by a member of the naval
stores committee of the Jacksonville Board
of Trade.
It seems absurd that a man occupying
the Iposition of President of the Savannah
lhrard of Trade should not know that such
investigation was being made by the gov-
ernment. The Savannah Board of Trade
claims to be the only organization that
can give correct statistics concerning the
naval stores business, and it certainly
seems that the officials of that organiza-
tion would know what has been a mat-
ter of common knowledge throughout the
turpentine twlt for several months.
It looks very much like the letter from
President Carson had for its object much
more than a demand for an investigation
of the charges concerning the alleged adul-
teration. lie says in his letter that:
"This statement has been given great pub-
licity, and is calculated to be extremely
harmful to the naval stores industry, un-
less disproved at once. If consumers and
dealers have doubts about the purity of
the stock of turpentine now held in the
South, it will cause a delay in purchasing
and result disastrously to values."
Now, does it not appear that Mr. Car-
son is lidling in bringing about the very
conditions that he expresses fears may
result? lie knew, or should have known
through his official position, that the
lDepartment of Agriculture was conduct-
ing an investigation to ascertain the truth
of the alleged adulteration, yet he writes
a letter to the Secretary of that depart-
ment asking that such an investigation be
gone into, and then, not satisfied with
that. he rushes copies of his letter to tlhe
daily p,alrs for publication before the
original letter could have been received
hy the Secretary of Agriculture.
Now. if the combine, which is under in-
dlietient for alleged manipulation of tihe
naval stores market, can succeed in forc-
ing prices a few points lower, Mr. Carson


It is a matter of common knowledge
that allegations have been frequently made
that spirits of turpentine have been adul-
tcrated to even a larger per cent. than
alleged by the member of the Jacksonville
committee, so the making public of this
charge was really nothing new. The
The charge had already reached the D-
Partment of Agriculture, and the De-
partment of Justice and these departments
were at work endeavoring to ascertain the
truth Icfore the allegation was made in
a public address. Consumers and dealers
were aware of such charges and the fact
that the government had begun an investi-
gation.
If any attempt is made to still further
manipulate the market to the detriment
of the producers, based upon the publicity
given the charges alleging adulteration,
the producer will know that such attempt
is not justified but that it is only part of
a scheme of the American Naval Stores
Company, whose "newspaper mouthpiece"
(ol. Tooner alleges Mr. Carson to be.
In his letter to the Secretary of Agri-
culture Col. Toomer says: "I, in com-
mon with others interested in the naval
stores industry, am and have for years
been convinced that the demonstration in
a court of justice of the fact that adul-
teration has been made would be ex-
tremely disastrous to Mr. J. A. G. Carson,
particularly if the proof should show that
the American Naval Stores Company, or
any of its subordinate or allied companies,
were in anywise responsible for this adul-
teration."
Ifere is a statement that Col. Toomer
and others have for years been convinced
that if it were shown that adult.-,ations
were made, as is now openly charged,
that such proof would be extremely dis-
tasteful to Mr. Carson. So it is a matter
of common knowledge that such charges
have been made. but not until now, when
an effort is being made to organize a com-
pany that will endeavor to give the oper-
ators a square deal, is it pointed out that
such reports are calculated to be harm-
ful to the industry.
The letters of Mr. Carson and Col.
Toomer are both published in full in this
issue of the Industrial Record and
both should be read by every turpentine
operator, and then, the reader should
carefully consider the relations to the tur-
pentine industry borne by the writer of
each letter.


An advertisement in the Industrial
Record reaches all the naval stores oper-
ators in the yellow pine belt, a large
numlner of lumbermen not engaged in
the naval stores business and regular sub-
scrilers to the Record. Advertisers will
find that the Industrial Record is the
very Iest medium to reach the man in
the woods. Try it and be convinced.


Slurs will not prevent the organization
of the Naval Stores Marketing Company.
The organization is assured of success,
and will do much to improve conditions in
the naval stores trade. Every turpentine
operator and person interested in the
naval stores business should become a
stockholder in this company.

TWO IMPORTANT MEETINGS.

The Georgia-Florida Sawmill Associa-
tion will meet in Jacksonville Tuesday,
October 13, and the Turpentine Operators'
Association will meet in annual session
October 14 and 15. As quite a number of
the members of the Sawmill Assocation
are also members of the Turpentine Oper-
ators' Association, they will attend both
b-




























meetions and their stay in Jacksonville
will be somewhat longer than usual.
The interests of the lumbermen ssti
turpentine men are mutual, to a certain
extent, and the holding of these two meet-
ings within a day of each other will help
to bring about a better understanding and
may result in benefit to all concerned.
Jacksonville will extend a hearty wel-
come to the members of both associations,
and Mayor Sebring will give them the
freedom of the city. The Industrial Rec-
ord invites all the operators and lumber-
men to call and make themselves at home
in the Record building Ohile they are in
the city.


CLAY COUNTY GOOD ROADS.

"A launch full of enthusiastic "good
roads'" rooters left Green Cove for Mid-
dleburg Saturday, and notwithstanding
the inclement weather had a fine meeting
in that progressive little town. While
there each and every one made himself a
committee of one to talk "good roads,"
and thus were able to arouse considerable
interest in the subject, so much so as to
ie invited to return Saturday, October 10,
for the purpose of organsing the Middle-
burg branch of the ClWy county Good
(ood Roads Association. In the Green
(ove branch there are over 990 taxpayers
and property owners enroled..The spirit
of progress is abroad in old Clay. The
people are one and all awakening from
their lethargy, and now propose to keep
pace with their neighbors of Duval and
Putnam. All hope that the day is not
far distant when the county will be cov-
ered with a network of hard roads."

New Marketing Company.


Organizers Are Meeting With Every Encouragement-
Big Meeting at Orlando and Gainesville.


The gentlemen having in hand the or-
ganization of the Naval Stores Marketing
Company are meeting with much encour-
agement everywhere they go in the in-
terest of the company, and large amounts
of stock have already been subscribed for
by not only turpentine operators but busi-
ness men and capitalists, for the latter
look upon the stock as a good invest-
ment.
The following account of the meeting
at Orlando appeared in the Reporter-Star
of that city. and that paper also heartily
endorsed the movement:
The Orlando Reporter-Star, in speaking
of the meeting of the turpentine opera-
tors in that city on last Friday in the in-
terest of the newmarketing company,
heartily endorses the movement and de-
clares that Orange county will -ooperate
in making it a success. The Reporter-
Star, among other things, says:
"Perhaps the most important industrial
meeting for years past was held in the
San Juan Hotel on Friday in an all-day
conference of the turpentine operators of
this section, with a number of gentlemen
who are intensely interested in the re-es-
tablishment of what once was the most
profitable and is still one of the most
important, if not the most important bus-
iness, in the State of Florida.
"The gentlemen visiting the city were
Mr. J. G. Boyd, president of the Turpen-
tine Operators' Associatio; Mr. C. B. Rog-
res, vice-president, and Col. Walter P.
Corbett, member of the special committee
of the Board of Trade of Jacksonville.
"The following naval stores people were
represented: Overstreet Turpentine Co.,
Drew, Miller & Co., William McKinnon,
Sellers, (verstreet & Co., E. P. McCallum
& Co., E E. Edlge, Conoly & Overstreet,
McKenzie & McKinnin and McNeill &
Davis.
The Object of Meeting.
"The purpose of this meeting was to
bring together and secure the support of
the above named naval stores companies
to a general plan of the consolidation of
all these interests in the State, to combat
the depressing influence of manipulators
who are responsible for the virtual de-
struction of an industry, which, with its
allied interests, is the biggest thing in the
State, as it has been throughout all the
Southern section of States where the long
leaf pine exists.
"It is a well known fact that 'Southern
Ho!' has been the march of this great in-
dustry, even as 'Westward, Ho!' has been


the great wlwat production of the country.
Ever Southward has lw'en the march, en-
riching a vast extent of country, to the
value of untold millions of dollars. And
now the industry is narrowing down to
the comparatively small area of long leaf
pine still left.
"In other words. Florida is now the chief
stage of action. But owing to the manip-
ulators of the markets, this State is actu-
ally Iesing robllsl of its inheritance and the
life Ilodl of its greatest living prodluet is
being sucked dry without any return. For
the price of the commodity has been forced
down below the cost of production to the
extent that during the past year alone
Florida has actually lost dollars running
into the millions.
"The apparent injustice of this nefari-
ous crowding of the State's turpentine op-
erators to the wall, with the evident in-
tention of depriving us of our rightful
heritage, purely for the enrichment of
outsiders, who have no part in the produc-
tion of the goods, this gross injustice is
visited upon all the kindred industries of
timber, etc., and upon our banks, merch-
chants, real estate men, builders, arti-
sans of every sort, and individuals every-
where.
"The city of Orlando is an example of
the effect of this blight, for a few years
ago a number of turpentine men selected
this city as their headquarters and their
influence was quickly felt. Lots were
sold, property changed hands, buildings
went up and the city started on an era of
great prosperity.
"The prosperity has not left us, because
we are branching out in other lines, but
many of these progressive turpentine men,
who contemplated extending improve-
ments, were prevented doing so by rea-
son of the outside pressure which forced
the price of spirits down to less than it
cost to operate the still.
Seeking a Remedy.
"Naval stores men all over the State
have Ieen brought to a condition of
desperation and are ready for any safe,
legitimate movement that will extricate
them from the clutches of the adly oc-
topus reaching out for them.
"And right here, just at the most op-
Iwotune time, the .acksonville Board of
Trade has an inspiration. A special com-
nittee is appointed to study the question
and to devise ways and means to remedy
the existing condition of things; to bring
order out of chaos and profit out of loss.

NEW MARKETING CO.

(Continued from page 9.)
"This committee proposed the establish-
ment of a corporation to be known as the
Naval Stores Marketing Company, to have
a capital of from $1,000,000 to $2.000,000,
the stock being divided into shares of the
par value of $100 each. This stock is to
be vested in a board of trustees for five
years. The trustees will issue certifi-
cates of stock, which are to be transfer-
able. This board of trustees is composed
of the best known business men of Jack-
sonville and other places, and the special
committee is composed of about sixty of
the solid business men of the State.
"The representatives of this committee,
who were at the meeting in this city on
Friday, have traveled over a wide extent
of territory in order to secure the co-oper-
ation of turpentine and timber men. The
purpose, as stated to the editor of the
Reporter-Star by Colonel Corbett and
Vice-Chairman Rogers. is to first enlist
all those interests immediately connected
with turpentine operating and then. upon
the confidence inspired, enlarge uilmn the
sales of stock by going to the public gen-
erally.
"The great encouragement extended
these members of the committee wherever
they have met the turpentine operators
of the State and the generous blocks of
stock bought by such persans and com-
panies is.very encouraging, and these vis-
iting gentlemen, acting without compen-
sation, in their anxiety to promote the
best interests of the State, do not hesi-
tate to assure the suffering naval stores
interests that light is breaking just ahead.
"We have confidence in the plan. The
Orlando contingent have expressed their
confidence by subscribing to stock, and we
believe the whole State will rally around
this evident means of salvation to the
State's greatest industry."

"President E. i. Nash is absent from the
city."
The News Here.
A representative .f the Industrial Re-
cord called on Mr. ( arl Moller, the Jack-
sonville representative of the American
Naval Stores Company, and asked him if
lie could give any thing definite in regard
to the move.
Mir. Moller stated that he could give out
nothing more than was contained in the
Associated Press report from Savannah.
The Times-lnion contained the follov-
ing hlKal article in regard to the move:
"Through its secretary, Charles J. De-
lAach, the American Naval Stores Com-
pany officially announced yesterday its in-
tention to remove its headquarters out of
the state of (:torgia and into Florida. The
work of otr< -til*,r thn j .lln o u-ill lw ini-


Jacksonville's Advantaes.

"The action of the American Naval
Stores Company, the "big gun" in the
nAval stores industry, in deciding to re-
move its headquarters from Savannah to
secure cargoes of naval stores products,
this city strongly emphasises the superior
facilities offered by Jacksonville. It is also
strong evidence of the city's importance as
a naval stores center and market. The
harbor offers many advantages with its
twenty-four-foot uniform channel. The
masters of ships are all willing and
anxious to come here if only they could
the movement of which has been un-
naturally diverted from this port. The
harbor here offers adequate room for an-
chorage, where other ports do not afford
the same. This is a big advantagein that
it allows the masters to anelior their ships
and dock at their pleasure, or, on the
other hand, to leave the docks after taking
on cargoes and anchor in the harbor until
they are ready to leave the port.

What It Will Mean.
"The removal of the headquarters of the
American Naval Stores Company from
Savannah will mean a heavy loss to that
city and the state of Georgia, while the


in i edi v te f coming of the big concern to this city will
menaced iininlediatelv and bv the 1st of c .m '
ni n mean an inestimable gain. It will stimu-
Jlanuary Savannah will have been aban- late business; it means that much of the
donned as a headquarters, and the head- movement of the products of the naval
Iqulirtcrs cstablislted here. The big con- stores industry will pass through this
cern has already issued orders instructing port; it means that an army of new
its office men to prepare to move their citizens will be added to the city's popula-
families to Jacksonville before January 1, tion; it means that everybody will be
and this alone will mean much in streng- either directly or indirectly benefited by
thening the population and increasing the the movement, and it means that Jack-
prosperity of the city. sonville is coming into her own."

STILLS AT VERY NEAR COST









- -. . .








I have on hand a very large assortment of stills, ranging in size from ten
to fifty barrels capacity. I have put the prices of these stills down to just
a little above cost, in order to dispose of them. Copper is now exceedingly
cheap, and there is no reason why the price of stills should not be reduced en-
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 crowns, 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.

To be Imitated is to be Flattered
We are leaders in our line of business, the cut herewith displayed is the pro-
duction of an actual photograph taken of one of our standard 30-bbl Turpetie
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 castoff eat 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 MeMillan Still All improvements that ave been made
on Turpentine Stills that have been worthy of the considalioan of the Producers
for the last decade are summed up in the MeMILLAN I'RPENTJIE 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 demmad; 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., Savannah, Ga., Jackson-
