OPERATORS SHOULD ACT.
WHILE THE ORGANIZATION OF THE NAVAL STORES
MARKETING COMPANY IS ASSURED, IT IS THE DUTY OF
EVERY TURPENTINE OPERATOR IN THE NAVAL STORES
BELT TO DO EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO ASSIST IN
ACCOMPLISHING THIS OBJECT. THE COMPANY IS BEING OR-
GANIZED IN THE INTEREST OF THE ENTIRE NAVAL STORES
INDUSTRY, AND IT IS THE JUDGMENT OF THE MOST ABLE
FINANCIERS THAT THIS COMPANY OFFERS TO THE NAVAL
STORES PRODUCER ONE OF THE FINEST INVESTMENTS IN
THE SOUTH. BUT THE ORGANIZATION OF THIS COMPANY
MEANS EVEN MORE THAN THAT TO THE PRODUCER. IT
MEANS THAT IT WILL NO LONGER BE POSSIBLE TO MANIPU-
LATE THE NAVAL STORES MARKET LIKE IT HAS BEEN
MANIPULATED UNTIL THE PRODUCER HAS BEEN COM-
PELLED TO SELL HIS PRODUCT FOR LESS THAN THE COST
OF PRODUCTION. THE TURPENTINE OPERATORS' ASSOCIA-
TION ADOPTED RESOLUTIONS ENDORSING THE PLAN OF
ORGANIZATION OF THE NAVAL STORES MARKETING COM-
PANY AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATION WAS AU-
THORIZED TO APPOINT A COMMITTEE OF FIFTY TO, AMONG
OTHER THINGS. URGE UPON EVERY TURPENTINE OPERA-
TOR THE IMPORTANCE OF EVERY NAVAL STORES PRODUCER
TAKING STOCK IN THIS COMPANY. IT IS A COMPANY FOR
THE OPERATORS AND IT SHOULD NUMBER AMONG ITS
STOCKHOLDERS EVERY PRODUCER IN THE NAVAL STORES
BELT.
THE OPERATORS ARE ALSO URGED TO STAND FIRMLY
BY THE RESOLUTION FAVORING THE REDUCTION OF THE
BOX CUT TO A MINIMUM. IF THE OPERATORS WILL DO
THIS, AND WILL ALSO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO BRING
ABOUT THE SUCCESSFUL LAUNCHING OF THE NEW COM-
PANY. THERE WILL AT ONCE BE A STEADY IMPROVEMENT
IN THE MARKET AND PRICES WILL BE RESTORED TO THE
POINT WHERE A FAIR PROFIT CAN BE MADE BY THE PRO-
-UCER.

BOMBSHELL THROWN INTO THE CAMP OF THE TRUST


Senator Taliaferro Replies

to the Savannah Attacks.

Denounces as False and Malicious the Statements or In-
ferences Made in Certain Savannah Newspapers
That He Was in Any Way Connected
With the Trusts.


Jacksonville, Fla., Nov. 7, 1908.
To the Public:
In an article signed "American Naval
Stores Company, E. S. Nash, President"
appearing in the Savannah Morning News
of October 17, 1908, and in articles in the
Savannah Naval Stores Review and Jour-
nal of Trade of October 17, 24 and 31, re-
spectively, attacks were made upon me
and widely circulated in Florida and else-
where. The article in the Savannah Morn-
ing News of October 17 is liable to create
false impressions concerning me, whether
so intended or not, and there are refer-
ences in that article that, if intended to
apply to me, are absolutely untrue. The
article appearing in the Savannah Naval
Stores Review and Journal of Trade on
the 24th of October, and its headlines, and
also portions of the headlines and of the
articles appearing in that journal of Oc-
tober 17 and 31 are, in many respects,
false and malicious.
In so far as these articles and headlines
state or imply:-
That I assisted in the organization of
a trust;
That I insisted upon the allotment to
me of a part of the stock of a trust;
That I secretly sought or held stock in
a trust;
That I betrayed the interests of the
Naval Stores producers of Florida, or have
ever taken any action prejudicial to their
interests;
That I was aware of, or had any knowl-


of the conduct or management of the busi-
ness of this company.
I did not insist upon the allotment to
me or to anyone else of any of the stock
of this company, and had no knowledge
whatever of any contract or agreement for
the allotment or issue of this stock.
I did not secretly seek or acquire stock
in this company.
I betrayed no interests of the naval
stores producers of Florida, and have
never never taken any action prejudicial
to their interests.
I held no stock in the company when
any of its officers were indicted and con-
victed, and had no more reason for sym-
pathy with them than a humane instinct
prompts toward those who subject them-
selves to punishment for violations of
law.
After the organization of the Consoli-
dated Naval Stores Company I was never
an officer or director of any factorage or
other naval stores company, or in any
manner managed or directed such com-
pany. I was a stockholder in the original
Florida Naval Stores & Commission Com-
pany, and later became and have ever
since been a large stockholder in the Con-
solidated Naval Stores Company, and have
always been and am now deeply interested
in the success of every department of the
naval stores interests in this State.
In all of the statements made in these
articles that directly or by implication re-
fer to me, the only truth contained in
them, so far as they relate to me, is the


edge of, the "turpentine joint accounts" fact that I was once a stockholder in the
of the Atlantic Investment Company with Atlantic Investment Company.

False and Libelous

Were Nash's Charges.

So Designed by Walter F. Coachman in an Open
Letter to President of American Naval
Stores Company.


The following open letter from Mlr. Wal-
ter F. ('ochman, of Jacksonville, to Mr.
E. S. Nash, President of the American
Xaval Stores Company, has been sent to
the Industrial Record with a request that
it he published, and the Record most
cheerfully complies with that request so
that its readers may fully understand
the methods that have been resorted to by
Mr. Nash and his associates and how en-
tirely unfounded are the statements made
and published in certain Savannah publi-
cations:
Mr. E. S. Nash. President, American Na-
val Stores Co.. Savannah, Ga.
Sir:-I have read in the Savannah
Morning News of October 17, 1908, a com-
munication addressed by you on behalf of
the American Naval Stores Company to
the producers and consumers of naval
stores, and have had my attention direct-
ed also to the issue of the Naval Stores
Review dated October 24, 1908, and de-
voted in large part to comment on your
article of the 17th ult., above referred to.
Your communication professes to be a re-
ply to attacks made upon your company.
You realize that these "attacks" are less
real than imaginary, and it is clear that
the purpose of the article was not defen-
sive but offensive. That the Naval Stores
Review, a journal devoted ostensibly to
the naval stores interests, is inspired, sup-
ported and dominated by your company
and its associated interests is thoroughly
understood by the naval stores interests
and the public. Its utterances will be
treated as emanating from and approved
by you, your company and its associates.
The motives which prompted your com-
munication and which lie at the root of
the attack made by the Naval Stores Re-
..view Mr R R R D onral


to each of the stockholders of the Con-
solidated Naval Stores Company, whether
a subscriber to that journal or not, tends
to sustain this charge.
Your purpose in naming Mr. C. B. Rog-
ers, personally, was because of his active
efforts in promoting the organization of
the proposed Naval Stores Marketing
Company which you regard as a possi-
ble competitor, and to discredit that
movement.
Your purpose in naming United States
Senator James P. Taliaferro, personally,
was to impair, if possible, his usefulness
as a public official in the passage of Fed-
eral legislation which shall regulate in-
spection of naval stores entering into in-
ter-state traffic and the collection of sta-
tistics on the production and consumption
of these products.
The material features of the two com-
munications to which I have referred are
statements that the Atlantic Investment
Company was a trust; that Mr. Rogers,
Senator Taliaferro and myself and the
others whom you designate as the "Sa-
vannah Interests" were subscribers to a
portion of the stock of that company;
and, by way of INFERENCES REPEAT-
EDLY DRAWN AND ANNOUNCED,
THAT I AND MY ASSOCIATES WERE
PARTIES TO THE CRIME FOR WHICH
IT IS CLAIMED THAT THAT COMPANY
AND ITS ASSOCIATES WERE CON-
VICTED IN 1907. The fact is however,
that the ATLANTIC INVESTMENT
COMPANY WAS NEVER TRIED FOR
OR CONVI(T'ED OF ANY OFFENSE

ed included among others the Patterson-

4 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.


SUPPRESSED FACTS BROUGHT TO LIGHT.


German Branch of American Naval Stores Company Prosecuted on Account of
Alleged Fraud and Unfair Competition in Germany.


Before going into the details of the sub-
ject of this article, we wish to urge every
operator, and any one else interested in
the naval stores business, to read the last
issue (October 31) of the Naval Stores
Review, "Gamble's" paper of Savannah,
in more than one sense of the word.
The contents of this sheet have a famil-
iar sound to us. They remind us of the
whining of a prairie wolf, which finds
himself caught in an iron trap. The same
hollow voiced whelping and clamoring,
born of fright and fear, pure and simple.
The wolf, in his greediness and savage
thirst for victims has advanced himself
too far, suddenly the iron fangs close
around his leg and dismal squeals come
forth from the snout, with teeth all whet-
ted to fall upon an unsuspecting victim.
The shrieks are of no avail, however, no
help can be found, the only -consequence
might be that from somewhere the wolf's
mouth may forever be shut. The herds-
man will soon come and kill the brute, with
utmost pleasure, which has so often
wrought havoc and bloodshed amongst his
lambs.
Do you understand, why we want you
to read the last Naval Stores Review?
Because we want you to participate in our
pleasure, a genuine happiness for us to
note and see, what the Shotter crowd
feels, now that the strong arm of justice
is about to entwine the octopus institu-
tion and a powerful competition will arise
to check its advance for the monopoly in
the Naval Stores trade. Yes. friends,
FEAR, alias Messrs. Shotter, Nash and
Cooper Myers, has dictated these articles
into the rusty pen of yon slave-servant.
Mr. Gamble! Perhaps this worthy trio
thought and hoped, that their fright would
be catching epidemically also amongst the
producers, but we are convinced that for
another time the weapon in the hands of
these men was ill chosen. Their howling
will bring about just the contrary from
what is expected in Savannah, for this
game is too simple for its plot not to be
easily understood. What are they yelping
about? Why, they hope that their loud
cries will silence every word said in favor
of the new Marketing Company. They
wish to try to prevent this concern from
becoming a reality. Don't they know that
their dream of absolute monarchy in the
naval stores belt will be ended, just as
soon as the new company enters the mar-
ket, and don't they realize that their
reign of manipulation. which was all too
profitable for them, will be over as soon
as this new competitor, with an army of
fighters behind, will enter the field? You
bet they know it, and they understand
the situation only too well. Why, it looks
so important to them that they choose.
without any discretion, the means to fight
the proposition confronting them. They
lower themselves and stoop down to an
attack of "mud-slinging" which is disgust-


ing to every man but themselves. Yes. at
this stage of the game. no means seems


mud and rot may wield a protective armor ject and provided Mr. Gamble only with

Mr. Benkert, too, published in the Record
a little while ago some carefully gathered
information about stocks of spirits tur-
pentine abroad. He proved, that the stocks
were collected at one point only-London,
England-to cause the impression of over-
production and abundance of stocks, while
at other points of the continent, the con-
sumers of spirits turpentine were, so to
speak, starving for the want of spirits

less than warranted by ordinary conditions.

ing the attention of the public prosecutor
to the alleged fraud and unfair competi-

exchange, discovered a yellow pine tree
that measured as follows: 24 feet around
at the butt end and 18 feet around at the
top, and seventy feet long. It will very
easily make a prime sill 24x24x70 feet
long, and the boards will be wide enough
that two will be sufficient for one side
of an ordinary house. Cut into flooring
the tree has a value of $75.

The next meeting of the Alabama-West
Florida Lumber Manufacturers' Associa-
tion, to be held in Montgomery, November
10, promises to be an unusually interest-
ing one. Reports are to be made by the
committee on weights and weighing of
lumber and the subject of cost, which has
already occupied a good part of the asso-
ciation's time, will be renewed.

6 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.


SENATOR TALIAFERRO REPLIES
TO THE SAVANNAH ATTACKS.

(Lontinued from page 3.)
that company. other Florida factorage
companies and the selling concerns of Sa-
vannah, to take over the Florida product
on the basis of the Savannah market-a
condition for which the Florida interests
had all along contended.
These contracts, as I recall, were made
in November, 19W2, and covered a little
over two years. or until early in 1905; and
the charter of the Atlantic Investment
Company was apparently made to termi-
nate with the expiration of these con-
tracts. The contracts, as I have said, ex-
pired early in 1905 and were not renewed;
and it was then that the real conflict be-
tween the Florida interests and these
Savannah selling agencies actually began.
In March of that year (1905) and be-
fore the expiration of the contracts, I
ceased to be a stockholder in the Atlantic
Investment Company, I held this stock
practically as long as the contracts ex-
isted between the Florida factorage com-
panies and this company, or those con-
trolling same, and which contracts were
favorable to the Florida Naval Stores in-
dustry, but when the contracts expired and
the conflict between the Florida interests
and the Savannah selling agencies began
I ceased to hold any interest in the Atlan-
tic Investment Company. Prior to March
15, 1905, one of the officers of the Atlan-
tic Investment Company had sought to
have me sell or dispose of this stock. I
had written him in substance that I was
satisfied with the investment and pre-
ferred to retain it. On March 16, 1905,
being in Washington City, I was advised
by telegram from Jacksonville that the
conference held in Savannah the day be-
fore between the representatives of the
Florida naval stores interests and the
Savannah marketing interest failed to re-
new the contracts, then about expiring,
that all negotiations were off in reference
to same, and that it would result in the
formation of a new export company in
Jacksonville to handle the Florida product.
I thereupon, on the same day. by telegram,
authorized the sale of my stock in the At-
lantic Investment Company, and on March
19,1905, my certificates of this stock were
forwarded to New York for delivery on
payment for same.
During all the time that I held stock
in the Atlantic Investment Company, cov-
ering almost, is not exactly, the period of
the contracts of the Florida Naval Stores
interests above referred to, there was no
charge against it of discrimination or of


violation of the law, and I was so satis-
fied with the stock as an investment,-
believing as I did that the operations of
the company were fair, honest and legiti-
mate-that when its surrender was de-
manded I was naturally reluctant to give
it up.
Subsequently, I am informed, the char-
ter of the Atlantic Investment Company
was renewed and that it was after this
renewal that the company was indicted
in the Federal Court at Savannah; and
at that time I had no interest in the com-
pany, whether it be considered as the same


and were fined as shown by the records.
The record shows, too, that the principal
and substantial matter charged in the in-
dictment was the making of a "joint con-
tract" by' certain other corporations and
individuals dated March 15, 1905, to go into
effect April 1, 1905. The Atlantic Invest-
ment Company was not a party to, and
did not execute, this agreement; and the
agreement, according to its terms, took
effect, as a matter of fact, some time after
I ceased to be a stockholder in the Atlan-
tic Investment Company. I had never
heard of, and had no knowledge of, this
contract, and had never seen a copy of it
until within the past few days when I
read a copy of same as set forth in the in-
dictment. This "joint contract" or agree-
ment was executed at or about the time
the Naval Stores Export Company was
being organized, and its evident purpose
was to defeat and destroy that company


in which the naval stores industry of this son, or justification for injecting my name


State was vitally interested.
The record in the Federal Court at Sa-
vannah further shows that two of the
persons, jointly indicted with the corpora-
tions that were convicted, and officers in
one or more of said corporations, filed their
written admission in court that they had
"MANA(ED" the business of their cor-
sprations in a manner which was in viola-
tion of the law. Thus it will be seen
plainly that I had no connection what-
ever, business or otherwise, with the cor-
Iprations and persons so indicted and con-
victed in the Federal Court for violating
the Sherman Anti-Trust law of the United
States.
In 1905 the Naval Stores Export Com-
pany was organized for the protection of
the industry, and during the term of its
all-too-brief career, there obtained an era
of good prices and general prosperity not
theretofore known or enjoyed.
The suggestion that I betrayed the in
terests ot the Florida producers, or any
other interest, by acquiring or holding
stock in the Atlantic Investment Com
pany. is not only mendacious but absurd-
I was not, at that time, nor since have I
ever been an officer or director of any
naval stores company in Florida or else
where. It is true that I have always felt
the deepest concern in the success of all
the naval stores industries in this State
and I have rendered every service in my
public and personal capacities that I pos
sibly could to foster, encourage,, develop
and protect them, and this I shall continue
to do. Never at any time have I held any
relations to the conduct of the naval stores
business in Florida or elsewhere which any
one could properly say was in any manner
inconsistent with tile acquiring and hold
ing by me of stock in any other company.
The ostensible author of the article of
October 17 in the Savannah Morning News,
notoriously the head of an export com-
pany. boasts in another publication over
his signature that his company, and of-
ficers of his company also, have large in-
terests in the factorage and producing
fields, and submits a letter of the Chair-
man of the Board of Directors to the same
effect, claiming thereby a guarantee of
their best efforts for the maintenance of
good prices. Thus, singularly enough, he


or a new company. The Atlantic Invest- convicts himself of what he charges as im-
ment Company, which was so indicted, was proper in others.
not convicted, the indictment against it It must be apparent also, that I could
was nolle prossed and there was no decis- not insist upon an allotment to me of
ion or judgment in those proceedings that stock when I knew nothing about its pro-
it was guilty of the violation of any law, posed issue. I was not at any meeting at
although other corporations and persons, which the organization of the Atlantic In-
indicted at the same time, pleaded guilty vestment Company was discussed or form-


into either or any of the published articles
I have heretofore referred to, or for mak-
ing the statements in reference to me
contained in those articles. I am not ac-
tively in the naval stores business, but am
only a stockholder in a naval stores com-
pany as are hundreds of others in Florida,
Georgia and elsewhere, and can account
for these attacks only upon the theory
that it may be one of the designs of per-
sons or corporations to injure my good
name and to destroy whatever of influ-
ence 1 may possess.
It is a fact that, at the last session of
Congress, I procured the passage of an
amendment to the Agricultural Appropria-
tion bill providing for the investigation of
the naval stores industry so that the pro-
ducer would be furnished with such infor-
mation as to supply and demand as would
protect him from the scant mercy of the
unscrupulous manipulator.
It is also a fact that the Jacksonville
Board of Trade has passed resolutions ask-
ing for appropriate legislation by Congress
to prevent the false grading and marking
of rosins and the adulteration of spirits of
turpentine; and it is a fact, too, that, to
the enactment of this proposed legislation,
my best efforts are pledged and shall be
devoted.
It is likewise true that there is a great
movement in Florida to organize a selling
company for the protection of the indus-
try, and that I have been named as one of
the trustees in that connection.
If it is for these reasons that I have
incurred the hostility of persons or cor-
porations and became the object of shafts
of slander then it is a gratification to me
to feel that my efforts to serve the best
interests of my State. have alone subject-
ed me to these unwarranted assaults. For
I say again, that, whatever lies properly
within my power to do for the protection
and advancement of this great industry, it
shall be done.
JAMES P. TALIAFERRO.

IN THE COURT OF THE COUNTY
JUDOE. FOR DUVAL COUNTY,
FIORIDA. IN PROBATE.
In the Matter of the Estate of John Zahm,
Deceased.
By the Judge of said Court.
In the name of the State of Florida.
Whereas, Henrietta Zahm, as adminis-
tratrix of the estate of John Zahm, de-
ceased, has filed in this Court her petition
praying that she be ordered to take pos-
session of the real estate described in said
Petition. to-wit: Lot Seventeen (17),
Block Six (i6 of Campbell's Addition to
Jack sonvil l. now in the corporate limits
of said city. situate in the County of Diu-
val and State of Florida, according to a


ulated, was not at any conference touch-
ing the sale or allotment of its stock, was
not a party to any contract it made, and
did not, as I have said, become a stock-
holder until several weeks after the com-
iany was organized.
That 1 sympathized with any officer of
the company when indicted is not only
false and malicious, but, like the other
charges, absurd, for I had long ceased to
be a stockholder in the company. The
methods of those who controlled it after
I ceased to be a stockholder were regarded
as inimical to the prosperity of a great
Florida industry, and it would have been
unnatural to have given my sympathy to
those whose course was considered de-
structive of the interests of my State, my
friends and myself. Besides, those who
know me best know that my sympathies
are not with lawbreakers.
There was no legitimate or proper rea-


>lat of said addition of record in Plat
took 2, page 21; also the following de-
crilsdl lot or parcel of land, to-wit: Ly-

Also the following Part of Water Lot
No. Nine (9), or Twenty-eight (28) of the
City of Jacksonville, County of Duval,
State of Florida, more particularly de-
scribed as follows, to-wit: Commencing

istrators and assigns, covenant to and
with the said party oi the second part,
his heirs, executors, administrators and
assigns, that as far as the said first par-
ties are concerned, the said passage way

'oen and unobstructed forever, as is pro-
vided in and guaranteed by the deed of
Theodore Hartridge and wife to Kate M.
Denny, which deed was recorded in the
public records of Duval County. Florida,
in Book "C." of separate property of mar-
ried women, on pages 816-818.

the first and third lines being parallel,
now in the corporate limits of the City of
Jacksonville, County of Dural and State

said decedent, John Zahm; and that all
persons in possession of said tract of land
or any part thereof, holding under said
decedent, surrender possession of the
same to said administratrix, and the

SUPPRESSED FACTS BROUGHT TO
LIGHT.

(Continued from page 4.)
barrels which were put there by Govern-
ment Inspectors, to the detriment of con-
sumers and that they were adulterating
spirits turpentine for their own gain and
purpose.
"Now it has occurred to me that fre-
quently the American Pine Products Co.
has made extraordinarily low offers, by
which the Ernst Bartels Akt. Ges., of
whose bdly of directors I am a member,
has lost heavily. These low prices have
caused me to suspect that some unfair
manipulations were at the base of it, and
on investigating the matter closely I find
that my suspicions have been only too
well founded.
"I am today in a position to PROVE
that by order of the responsible directors
of the American Pine Product Co. the
marks (,f rosin as established by American
inspection, have Iten changed in their
yards, thereby imitating as good as pos-
sibie the marks of the Americans in order
to keep up the belief that a buyer would
get original American grades.
"Since each buyer of rosin is in the firm
belief that he receives the American graded
rosin. I am of the decided opinion, that
the action of the American Pine Products
Co. represents a grave breach of trust and
belief," etc.
A Weak Answer.
Against this accusation the American
Pine Products Company answered in a cir-
cular letter on September 29th, the con-
tents of which are so weak a defense, how-
ever, that they are not worth the trans-
lation for this paper. The substance of
the letter is the information that this
concern is going to sue Mr. Benkert for
slander.
On Oct. 2 Mr. Benkert sent out a fresh
circular letter in which he says. '" here-
with declare, that I sustain EVERY AC-
CUSATION I HAVE MADE in my former
letter TO THE LAST WORD, and that
I HAVE PROOF FOR EVERYTHING I
(CONTENDED IN MY HANDS. IT IS A
SATISFACTION FOR ME TO KNOW
THAT THE AMERICAN PINE PROD-
IUI TS (C. IS GOING TO SUE FOR SLAN-
DER, BECAUSE THIS WILL GIVE ME
AN OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE THE
('HARGIF I MADE. ANYHOW I HAVE
ALREADY BROUGHT THIS MATTER
BEFORE THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR
ON THE 28TH OF SEPTEMBER BE-
CAUSE I CONSIDER THE MATTER IM-
PORTANT ENOUGH TO HAVE IT DE-
S CIDED IN THE INTEREST OF EVERY-
BODY CONNECTED WITH THE NAVAL
STORES TRADE."
Such are the reasons which caused Mr.
lenkert to be disliked by the American
and which inspired the article against him
in the last Review. And today we are
enabled to tell our readers that it stands
bad with the German branch of the Amer-
ican. Why, its manager is said to have
admitted that he HORNS THE ROSIN.
only he does not consider it a fraud, but
a PLAIN DUTY, because--listen and learn
lie contends that only 10 per cent of the
American rosin is being inspected, aad this


inspection is done in America in a CARE-
IESS AND FRIVOLOUS MANNER,
WHICH THIS IMPORTANT PERSON-
AGE HAS TO RECiTIFY -for the interest
of his customers, of evurse. If it comes to
a claim, however, this same concern is not
shy to say that the claimant has not a
bit of show. because he RECEIVED THE
ROSIN INSPECTED AND GRADED IN
AMERICA BIY SWORN INSPECTORS.
They Get Theirs.
What do you think alsut that, we ask'
Is not that something new for you? The
product of your hard work and toiling,
which is Isxught from you at a losing
price. is regarded abroad by this worthy
combination of gentlemen so that they
get at least THEIR profits, no matter how
the market stands. Are not such tactics
an enormity, which ought to be stopped
in the name of common sense and justice?
Sure it is, and it can be done easily enough.
There is the new Naval Stores Marketing
Company which will do it better than all
the processes against the American and
that is just the greatest fear of the Amer-
ican. that this new concern will heat them
and heat them good. They may figure that
a fine, which might he imposed upon the
American in their processes can well be
paid. when there is a chance left to re-
make the money thus lost. But with the
new Marketing Company in the field that
chance is lost and gone and for that rea-
son you hear the crowd howl, and see their
efforts to stop the organization of the new
company.
Now for us who are interested in the
naval stores trade on an honest scale, what
does the fear of Shotter teach us? We
will learn once and forever that just be-
cause of it we will need to strain every
nerve in order to get the new company
afloat at the earliest possible moment.
We do not need Shotter and his allies.
Kick them out of the circle of honest tra-
ders. kick them so high that they starve
in the air, before they strike bottom again,
and in the meantime let us go and sub-
scribe to the new company and let us put
all our shoulders to the wheel and make
this enterprise a decided and complete
success. SHOTTER'S FEAR IS OUR
VICTORY.
KEYNOTE OF PROSPERITY.
Cincinnati. Nov. 5.-Speaking to the
Cincinnati Commercial Club, where he has
been a member for fifteen years, William
Howard Taft tonight sounded the keynote
of prosperity for the country for the next
four years.
"Every business man who is obeying the
law may go ahead with all the energy in
his possession: every enterprise which is
within the statutes may proceed without
fear of interference from the administra
tion. when acting legally: but all interests
within the jurisdiction of the federal gov-
ernment may expect a rigid enforcement
of the laws against dishonest methods,"
was the keynote of what Mr. Taft said.

MORE MANIPULATION.
T'le advance in the price of spirits of
turpentine during the present week is a
matter of satisfaction to the producer, but
it is well for the turpentine olwrators not
to be over confident. There are wheels
within wheels and the little wheel makes
the big wheel go around. Any one who
has watched the Savannah market closely
luring the past few days will see that it
is not any unusual demand that has
caused the advance in price. Take
Thursday, for instance, and note what
the Savannah News says about the ad-
vance on that day:
"The upward tendency in the market
for spirits turpentine continued yesterday,
and another half cent was added to the
price," said the News in its Friday's is-
sue. "The market opened unchanged at
38'/c, sales 61 casks. Later there were
sales of 27 casks at 38%c, 36 casks 38'Ac,
and then 6o4 casks at 38%c. close was
quoted at 38/c and 38%c, but as will be
noted the great bulk of the sales were at
the outside and latest price. Further
sales were reported after the close at
38/ c, and ioo to igo casks were carried
over unsold."
Now. does that look like the advance
was caused by any unusual demand? The
receipts that day were 858 casks; ship-
ments 42 casks, coastwise. no exports.
Ever since the Turpentine Operators'
Association adopted resolutions urging the
reduction of the box cut for 1908-99, to
a minimum there has been a fluctuation
in the spirits market. There is not one
particle of doubt that the market is be-
ing manipulated so a to induce the op-
erators to gm th resolutions and to


go ahead cutting boxes. The manipula-
tors know that if the box cut is stopped
or even if it is reduced to a minimum that
the supply will soon be so curtailed that
they will have nothing to manipulate. The
producers can then fix their own prices and
can demand a fair living profit for their
product.
There is no doubt that the American
Naval Stores Company will allow the
price of spirits to advance to 40 cents per
gallon about the time it is customary to
begin the cutting of boxes, but they are
not going to allow it to be more than
one or possibly two cents over that figure.
They will do this to encourage the pro-
ducer to go ahead with the cutting of
boxes and then, after the producer has
started the work nnd is into it so deeply
that he cannot well drop it, the prices will
be again lowered.
The producers should remember that
those resolutions adopted by the Turpen-
tine Operators' Association were given the
most careful consideration by men who
have had long experience in the business.
They studied the matter carefully and they
ealrnestlv believe that the resolutions
adopted are for the best interests of the
naval stores industry, and that the carry-
ing out of these resolutions will do more
to bring about better conditions than any
other one thing.
The resolutions in regard to the box: cut
were as follows:
"Whereas. It is the sense of this asso-
ciation that there is already in operation
a number of turpentine boxes sufficient
to produce an ample crop, in view of the
manner in which the naval stores market
has been manipulated, and
"Whereas. Although the supply of tim-
her is limited and is constantly decreas-
ing. and although the demand for this
product is annually increasing, the price
of spirits of turpentine has steadily de-
clined, by reason of an unnatural market
situation: now, therefore, be it
"Resolved. That this association peti-
tion the factors to use their influence with
their individual customers and to co-oper-
ate with this association to the extent
that producers hold their operations dur
ing 1908-1900 to a minimum, it being the
sense of this association that no new
boxes be cut. and no new crops put up
during the coming season."

(Continued from page 3.)
1902. negotiations were bIegun Ibetweien
the ('osolidated Naval Stores companyy on
tlie one part and the Patterson-Downing
Company and S. P. Shotter Company on
the other part, looking to a sale of the
consolidatedd Naval Stores (ICmpany's
receipts at Florida ports on a flat basis
of Savannah's closing market. with an ap-
propriate differential against Pensacola.
Pending these negotiations the Atlantic
Investment Com)any was organized. It!
was insisted lby the Patterson- )owning
Company and S. P. Shotter Coimpany that
the charter and good will of the Standard
Naval Stores Comlpany should Iwe assigned
to the Atlantic Investment company and
stocks on hand of thie Standard Naval
Stores ( onmiany were purchased on a basis
of the closing market of Novemler 15,
i9HT2. The retirement of the Standard i
Naval Stores companyy of Florida was!
agreed upon: $253.00.W.(t) of the stock of
the proposed selling company which you
and your associates were engaged ill or-
ganizing was allotted to the "Savannahi
interests" and myself. and accordingly
$125.000.00 of this stock was subscribed
by the (nisolidated Naval Stores Com-
pany. and $125.000.o41 of this stock sub-
scribed by me anl a number of others.
many of whom had been lately interested.
either directly or indirectly. in the Stand-
ard Naval Stores Company of Florida and
its associate comnipany, the Florida Naval
Stores andl C'onimission Company.
This stock was laid for by the suh-
-crilers in cash. -*20.000.00 with inter-
est from the date of the call for its pay-
nenit. A few months thereafter the stock
in the Atlantic Investment companyy pur-
chasedl by the Consolidated Naval Stores
(Company was sold to the Atlantic Invest-
nient (onmpany or some of its associated
interests, and during the year 1904 the
stock held by MIr. C. B. Rogers and my-
self was sohl to Mr. R. \V. Patterson,
President of the Patterson-Downing Com-
pany. in exchange for stock in the Con-
solidated Naval Stores Company. I am
informed that the stock held by Senator
Taliaferro and our other associates was
purchased by you or your associates early
in the year 190.. on a threatened liquida-
tion of the Atlantic Investment Company.
This all preceded April 1st. 1905. At no
time during the existence of the Atlantic
Investment Company. and particularly dur-
ing the period of our ownership of a por-
tion of its stock. were any of my associ-
ates or myself in any wise connected with
the DIRECTORATE OR MANAGEMENT
OF THAT COMPANY, and it is gratifying
now to me to recall that it was only after
my associates and myself had ceased
even to le stockholders in that company
that y-our companies with which neither I
nor any of imy associates had any connec-
tion whatever. either directly or indirect-
ly. in their attacks upon The Naval Stores
Export Company and the naval stores in-
dustry. began a career which resulted in,
their conviction.
It was the clear purpose of your article
and of your organ, the Naval Stores Re.
view. to intimate that my associates and
myself were, dirocly or indirectly. asso-
ciated with you and your associates in
conduct for which your companies were
convicted. Such an inference is utterly
false and plainly lilwl.los. The Atlantic

witli tire or six other corporations of
which yo or your associates were manag-
ing ollicers, it is evident that the Atlantic
Investment companyy was not considered
a participant in any wrongful acts, be-
caused when MAr. Shotter. Mr. Meyers, and
other defendants confessed and pleaded
guilty, the case against the Atlantic In-
vestment companyny was dismissed. Thus
tlhe inference il y',ouir letter and the charges
in the Naval Stores Review that we were
stockholders in a corporation which had
I*een convicted of being a trust are both
untrue. \Again. the overt acts in violation
of tlhe Federal anti-trust law which were
the lias.is of the indictment against you
and your associates, and the seven different
corlporations in which you or they were
otithers. were the making of contracts to
which the Atlantic Investment Company
was never a party and was in no way
monnectedl with. No charge was made
that tlw Atlantic Investment Company
participated in the illegal contracts and
combinations. to the making of which Mr.
Shlotter and other defendants pleaded
guilty. The joint contract set up in the
indictment was dated March 15th. 1906,
and was to go into effect April 1st, 1906.
Air. Io gers, Senator Taliaferro and I had
sold our stock in the Atlantic Investment
(omprlany long before this contract was
made. and. even if the Atlantic In-
vestment Company had twen a party to it.
which is not true. the fact remains that
the princil|al charge against the parties in-
dicteil was. lIasedl on transactions which
occurred after we had ceased to have
*tock in the Atlantic Investment Com-
pany. You will also remember that the
original charter of the Atlantic Invest-
ment ( oinpany was limited to two years
;nd, three months. After Mr. Rogers and
I had sold our stock. the officers of the
Atlantic Investment Company renewed the
charter of that company, after having
ford out Senator Taliaferro and a num-
Iw-r of .lJi-koi,,ville stockholders by threats
of lilini.l;ition. It is likewise a most sig-
nificant fact that the acts for which these
parties were indicted were done at a time

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 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 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.

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.

To be Imitated is to be Flattered
We are leaders in our line of business, the cut herewith displayed i the repro-
duetion 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 MeMILLAN 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., Savannah, Ga., ackson-
ville, Fla., and Mobile, Ala.
ALL WORK GUARANTEED.
