Only Real Relief.
) per .
"Every day confirms us in our conviction that real relief to this
great industry (Naval Stores) and to the thousands of people en-
gaged in and dependent upon it, will only come through the activity
of an independent bona fide selling agency, whose business shall be
conducted solely in conformity with the commercial laws of supply
and demand, thus enabling the market to respond at all times to
natural conditions; in other words, to become stable.
"Such a condition would, we believe, be as gratifying to the con-
sumer and dealer as it would be satisfactory to the producer, and
we feel that all this will be accomplished through the operation of
The Naval Stores Marketing Company, now forming."-Extract from
a communication to the New Orleans Lumber Trade Journal from
George L Drew, chairman of the committee on organization of the
Naval Stores Marketing Company.
The above expression by Chairman Drew is clear cut and to the
point. It should attract the attention of every person identified with
the naval stores industry and all should joi in launching The Naval
Stores Marketing Company as promptly as possible.

Mr. Nash, President of the American Naval Stores Co., Makes Cor-
rection of Some Statements That Came From Germany.
Savannah, Ga., November 14, 1908.
Editor Industrial Record, Jacksonville, Fla.
Sir-In your issue of November 7th there
appears an article under the heading:
"SUPPRESSED FACTS BROUGITT
in which there are two gross and glaring
misstatements of fact, that call for im-
mediate contradiction on our part and cor-
rection upon yours.
Firstly, you allege that one Benkert
started in Hamburg a process against our
Hamburg branch, the American Pine Prod-
ucts Company, which resulted in an indict-
ment of that company by the Public Pros-
ecutor on account of alleged unfair com-
petition and fraud.
Secondly, in referring to the dismissal
of the said Benkert from the firm of E. G.
Bartels, A. G., you state that the reason
for this was "that allied interests of the
American Naval Stores Company in Ham-
burg controlling to a great extent the stock
of E. G. Bartels, A. G., urged upon this
company the advisability of dismissing Mr.
Benkert after he had instituted his process

Suicidal Policy Pursued
by Turpentine Operators.
Lumber Trade Pleased
With Existing Conditions.
In another column of this issue we pub-
lish a letter from a well known operator
in which he makes the assertion that the
"major portion of the operators are going
to cut boxes."
That is the information that comes from
more than one source. It is a suicidal
policy on the part of the operators. They
are encouraged by the rise of a few cents
a gallon in the price of spirits turpentine
and are ignoring the resolutions adopted at
the annual convention of the Turpentine
Operators' Association held in this city last
month. The preamble to the resolutions
clearly set forth the prevailing conditions,
and if, in the face of these, drawn up by
a strong committee composed of well
known operators, there are men who will
persist in going ahead with the box cut
and cup hanging during the present sea-
son, then, these men deserve just what
will follow. If they will continue to load
up the Savannah manipulators with heavy
stocks, they will only be aiding in furnish-
ing the ammunition used against them.
The box cut should be held down to the
lowest possible point during the present
season. The factors, who have been doing
their very best to aid the operators, should
use every effort to bring this about. If
the operators persist in cutting boxes and
preparing for a big crop, the factor, who
knows what this means to the business,
will no doubt be forced to take radical
steps as a matter of self-protection.
Every turpentine operator and every fac-
tor should read the following resolutions
most carefully and then do all in their
power to carry out the intent of those
"Whereas, the past year has been one of
exceedingly low prices in the naval stores
industry; spirits of turpentine now being
sold at prices lower than any which have
been touched for seven or eight years; and
"Whereas, This condition has been
brought about largely through the lack of
selling facilities and through the nefarious
practices employed by certain selling agen-
cies. which exert a powerful and direful
influence upon the market and the naval
stores industry, as a whole; and
"Whereas, It is the sense of this asso-
ciation that there is already in operation a
(Continued on page 7.)
The cessation of political strenuosity
and the evidence on every hand of return-
ing confidence in business conditions ap-
pear to please the lumber interests, with-
out regard to section.
The general revival of trade has a most
desired and tremendous effect upon lumber
dealers and manufacturers in all lines of
the business. Simultanfeously with the
announcement of railroads, mills and fac-
tories resuming work and contracting for
betterments, come the relborts of saw
mills, lumber mills, furniture and other
woodenware factories getting their ma-
chinery in motion and calling in all hands
to till their accustomed positions. The in-
dications are for a most gratifying activ-
ity throughout tlIe South. beginning at
once. and the effects of the feeling of con-
fidemce are already so apparent that none
can mistake them.
commentingg on the subject editorially
the American Lumberman says:
"So long as building continues at its
present gait the sash. door and blind fac-
tories, flooring plants. etc.. will continue to
run full time, and this sort of trade is now"
very close to normal. So far as the farm-
er is concerned, he has already demon-
strated his confidence in the situation by
investing in implements, vehicles, etc., and
factories of this class are finding business
very good and expecting that it will be
still Ittter from now on. Their stocks of
lumber are low and until this week they
have been loth to buy, but many are now
in tle market for more lumber than they
have been carrying in their yards at any
one time in months.
"The furniture trade, particularly the
demand for medium priced and cheap fur-
niture. which of course constitutes the
largest portion of the entire output, is ac-
tive, and there is no question that orders
already placed with manufacturers are go-
ing to be greatly increased within the
next week or ten days. Therefore, the
prospects of finding a sale for considera-
ble lumbl'r in this direction is good. and
the same applies to veneers."
Advices from the Atlantic seaport ium-
Ier shipping centers are to the effect that
luiliewrmen see evidences of brisk business
within the next week-a radical change
from the prevailing quiet of the past year.

"Blusiness men know that politics has
taken a vacation for four years, and that
business is to have in the meanwhile the
right of way. Reports of trade improve-
ment and industrial activity are coming
in from every side. It is not so much the
result of the election as it is the disap-
pearance of the distracting and hyphoniz-
ing influences of polities. The threats and
rumors of the campaign rendered capital
cautious, and business is hopeless without
the aid of capital.
"It will be strange indeed if business
does not become steadily better, for all
business men are rejoicing over the end-
ing of the season of politics. The crops
of the year are moving. The country is
optimistic. This means larger railway
earnings, larger bank clearings and higher
prices for securities.
"The best factor after all is the general
optimism that has set in. Reports of it
appear in nearly every newspaper. When
optimism becomes epidemic general busi-
ness and industrial activity follow as a
matter of course. We need not long for
good times. They are here. General bus-

thus in some measure repair the injury to his business acumen and altogether con
which your previous publications were cal-
culated to inflict upon a company innocent
of the offenses charged. This request was
refused for reasons that may have been
sufficient, but that are not clear to us.
You have, however, published Senator
Taliaferro's reply to an article that you
refused to admit to your columns which,
while in accord with the freedom of the
press, is not so as regards its fairness. We
venture to hope, however, that you will
not refuse to publish this letter we ten-
der herewith, and which is written for the
purpose of correcting publicly some im-
pressions that the Senator derived from
the article in which we used his name. In
that article we made but brief reference
to that gentleman, in the nature of infor-
mation which he does not and cannot
deny. The entire article and all it con-
tained, including the statement as regards
the Senator, is in every respect absolutely
true, is impossible of impeachment and
contains nothing that should be retracted
or amended in any particular. We shall
write briefly and finally, having no more
taste for newspaper controversy than has
the Senator himself-and, for the sake of
clearness, with whatever of brevity is con-
sistent with comprehensiveness, we take
the statements paragraphically.
"First. Senator Taliaferro, in referring
to our article, says that it contained at-
tacks upon him which were widely circu-
lated. We wish primarily to deny that
any attack upon him was made or intend-
ed. We made a simple statement of fact,
and in that statement charged no offense
of any kind from our point of view, this
being confined to the fact that he had been
a stockholder in a company which the
major interests in the American Naval
Stores Company had promoted and man-
sistent with commercial rectitude as it
was constructed by each one of his fellow
stockholders, the Senator enters a defense
where no charge was made. His defense,
however, does not relieve the situation to
which he has exposed himself, and should
be as unavailing as was that of those who
were in course of time duly charged and
"The Senator's memory as to the tur-
pentine joint account is probably defec-
tive as he declares that he was not "aware
of or had any knowledge of the turpentine
joint accounts of the Atlantic Investment
Company." However this may be, he did
have full knowledge of the fact that the
sole revenue of the Atlantic Investment
Company, whose stock he held, was de-
rived from the combined profits of the
Paterson-Downing Company, S. P. Shotter
Company, Standard Naval Stores Com-
pany and National Transportation and
Terminal Company. The spirit and intent
of the indictment (that chanced to be sub-
sequent to the sale of the Senator's stock)
was based upon the combination embraced
in the Atlantic Investment Company,
which company was as indictable under its
original charter as it was under the new,
which was merely an extension of the old.
"Third. The Senator, in defending his
investment, which requires no defense--
says that during the period of his hold-
ings he believed "that the operations of
the company were fair, honest and legiti-
mate." Why he should feel called upon to
make this statement of a self-evident fact
we do not know. We do know, however,
that his belief was shared by us. We did
not charge Senator Taliaferro with being
a stockholder in a company that he knew
to be illegal, but in one that was subse-

THE TURPENTINE CONTROVERSY.
Under the above caption the last issue
of the Oil, Paint and Drug Reporter, of
New York. has the following to say in
its editorial columns:
"On another page of this issue are
printed two open letters, one written by
Senator Taliaferro addressed to the pub-
lie, and the other by W. F. Coachman ad-
dressed to E. S. Nash, president of the
American Naval Stores Company. The
letters are in reply to one previously writ-
ten by Mr. Nash and published in the Re-
porter at the time, in which he made cer-
tain allegations concerning the connection
of the gentlemen named with the Atlantic
Investment Company. from which sprung
the present American Naval Stores Com-
pany. In the open letters referred to the
authors deny many of the allegations con-
tained in Mr. Nash's letter, and enter upon
a lengthy defense of their position. We
publish the letters, as we have stated in
introducing them, at the request of the
writers that both sides of the controversy
may be made known.
"The situation in the South as regards
the turpentine industry is unfortunate.
(hO one side there are the producers, and
their organization, with headquarters in
Jacksonville, and on the other the princi-
pal distributors in Savannah. These in-
terests have apparently agreed to dis-
agree, and in the carrying out of their in-
tention, the naval stores industry of this
country has suffered not a little. "It is an
ill wind that blows nobody good," and
largely as a result of the differences be-
tween producers and distributors, the con-
sumers of naval stores have profited hand-
somnely. It would he wiser, of course, for
all concerned to get together and work for
the common good, but the suggestion of
such a happy consummation we fear pre-
sents a problem apparently beyond hope
of solution, at least for the present."
With these views the Industrial Record
cannot entirely agree, for it is evident
that the Oil. Paint and Drug Reporter does
not realize that "the principal distributors
in Savannah" as it terms them, also claim,
over the signature of the president of the
American Naval Stores Company. that
his company, and the officers of his com-
pIany also. ha;e large interests in the fac-
torage and producing fields, and submits
a letter of tli cehairinan of his Board of
Ilirectors to the same effect, claiming
thereby a guarantee of their lest efforts
for the maintenance of gold prices. He
does this while he is claiming that it is
improlwr il others to own stock in one
of his iomnlpanies. and at the same time he
and his associates continue to hold stock
in companies that have been indicted in
the Federal courts for alleged combination
in restraint of trade.

Nash's article appeared in the Review that
number was given an extensive circula-

A POOR SHOT.
Here is tile way a correspondent of The
Oil and 'olour Trades Journal of London,
looks upon the resolutions adopted by the
Turpentine Operators' Association conven-
tion held in this city last month:
"Sirs. In reading your report with ref-
erence to the alove. I note the following:
"'Spirits of turpentine for commercial uses
only." This latter sentence "for com-
mercial uses only." is neither just to the
maker, seller, nor the consumer. Under
this name all kinds of adulterations have
gone on. and in consequence the sale of
pure turpentine has been curtailed. What
a strange thing it is that modern thought
does not attack the base of all troubles.
commercial or otherwise. In my humble
opinion, the reason for the reduced sales
of pure turpentine and rosin is through
the "cornering" of the articles, and put-
ting them up to a prohibitive price. Then
was the time the sales were curtailed, le-
cause when some articles get beyond a cer-
tain price. they become unworkable for
certain purposes, and users begin to
scratch their heads, and look around for
substitutes, and in the case of turpentine
many were found. Therefore. T think it
is time that those in authority if they
wish to prevent substitutes from coming
on the market should see that various ar-
ticles do not reach a prohibitive price, and
not try to stop some of the members of
rings from lifting the cup, and thereby
minimising the outfall. Yours, &c..

One Operator Says a Few Things That
Are Not Very Complimentary.
The following letter from a well known
turlentine operator may lie rather strong
in its language and the terms used. but the-
writer evidently knows whereof he speaks.
FElitor Industrial Record: Fromn the in-
formation at hand. it seems that a great
many. or. in other words, the major por-
tion of tle operators are going to cut
Ioxes. D)o you know who the richest set
of men in the world are? TIE TURPEN-
TINE' MEN. Do you know who the blind-
,st set of men in the world are? THE
TuRIPENTIXE MEN. Thyv. without :t
doubt, have the least reasoning power and
the least business sense of any set of men
in the world. If Shotter can't manipulate
the naval stores business with such a set
of men making the stuff as the present
ones. he (Shotter) is a poor business man
himself. Times are still too good; tur-
pentine ought to go to 10 cents per gallon
and rosin to 30 cents per Iarrel.
I am not going to cut a box or hang a
'icu, and some others say they are not:
but others are going to cut because T am
not going to cut. so. you se. they want to
make up my shortage in next year's crop
and keep the price down to 30 cents. If
turpentine should go to 30 cents next year
I know where I will be. in debt for one
thing and busted for another and mnayble
in jail: though, if I am, I do hope all the
balance of the operators will be with me.
If we would only but try we could get
good prices for our stuff next year; hut
we wont try. and it does look like we
don't want gosl prices. for. if we did. we
would certainly hold the box cut down.
Things look worse to ime- instead of Intter.
Now some fellow may say I am a fool.
That I know as well as he does. and lups-
siblv better. If T had Ibe'n a real sensible
man I never would have gotten into the
turpentine business. OPERATOR.

PEONAGE BUBBLE BURST.
Again has the lion. Charles Russell and
his female assistant, Mrs. Mary Quacken-
bos, failed to secure a conviction of Florida
citizens on a charge alleging jwonage. This
time they failed in New York City, where
they secured indictments against certain
labor agents of the Florida East Coast
Railway. They had a lot of disgruntled
foreigners to swear that lalirers employ-
ed in constructing the Key West extension
of the railroad were badly treated, and
held in a state of slavery in the camps
on the Florida Keys. 1When the case came
to trial the Government failed completely
to prove its charge of conspiracy, and
Judge Hough, before whom the case was
tried, instructed the jury to bring in a
verdict of not guilty.
Miami Ieing tne closest point on the
mainland of Florida to the camps whe-e
the men were alleged to have been held
in a state of peonage, the following edito-
rial from the Miami Metropolis on this
subject will be of interest:
"The action of Judge Hough yesterday,
sitting in the Federal court in New York
in dismissing the case against the labor
agents who sent the workmen to the Flor-
er evidence against these labor agents, and
as far as the Metropolis can see, there
never was the least cause for action
"The class of men sent to the extension
camps from the North were of the kind
that generally "hobo" their way through
life. From past performances, it is quite
evident a large proportion of these men
n.ver intended to go to work on the Flor-
ida last Coast Railway extension. Many
of them wanted, we think, to get into a
warm climate without "hoboing" the en-
tire distance. Others probably wanted to
see what the country down here looks
like, but never intended to work to find
out what they wanted to know.
"Now it is luite true, these men gener-
ally were a worthless set, and the only kick
the Metropolis has against the labor agents
is, they should not have sent such a class
of men into any new country where the
facilities for handling them are not suffi-

STILLS AT VERY NEAR COST 1,
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

leak. Drop our nearest shop a line, or wire us for your wants. Ask for our

To be Imitated is to be Flattered
We are leaders in our line of business, the eat herewith displayed is the repro-
duetion of an actual photograph taken of one of our standard 30-bbL Turpentie
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 east-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., Jacksn-
ville, Fla, and Mobile, Ala.
