IAnsu h, r a., su quen y ecl ye pres
ident of the assoication, read the follow-
ing excellent paper:
To give this subject justice would re-
quire considerable time, as the industrial
development of Florida is a long story,
too long to be told in one evening-and
do the subject justice. Florida is an
old State and its industries began taking
shape more than one hundred years ago.
Yet our industries are really in their in-
fancy. Great changes have been made
since its development began. The scene
of some of its earlier industries give now
but little indication of past activities.
Only a few weeks ago, I was in the Turn-
bull Hammock, near New Smyrna. There
is now what seems to be primeval for-
est, where indigo was once grown. Only
a few of the canals-drainage ditches
--remain to give evidence of past and
forgotten industries. Around MIentosh
-where I live-there are large live oaks
growing where sugarcane was grown be-
fore the Seminole War. These records
of the past are referred to to give som-.
idea of what was being done years ago,.
S Prior to the Civil War cotton and sug-
areane were the principal crops grown-
at least the principal money crops. Some
little attention was given to hogs and
cattle, and some corn was grown. Slave
labor was used in the production of these
crops. The Civil War made great
changes. The slave being freed, the cul-
tivation of these crops was to a great
degree abandoned, and, for a time, the
slave was the master, and Florida made
no progress for years-possibly ten years
-industrially, these ten years being con-
sumed in getting rid of carpetbag rule.
None but those living through this strug-
g'e can have a true conception of the
conditions that existed.
In the early years of the seventies.
a new life began to develop. IThe orange
legan to attract attention. Something
earlier than this a few siedllihg groves
were sending fruit out of the State. The
good quality of this fruit was recognized
and brought to the State such men as
F. G Sampson. of Boardman, A. S. Kills
and .1. B. Berland, of Citra. and others,
to other parts of the State. Really the
budding of sour trees and the introdue-
rible shock, and from it some have not
recovered, after the lapse of nearly ten,
years. A few more lost faith. As Mr
Dudley Adams ordered budwood from
California the day after the freeze, each
year has found a few of the old growers
taking heart again until to-day there art-
numerous groves in the old orange sec-
tions blooming and bearing. Possibly
thirty years ago a few vegetables were
grown to ship North. but shipments were
small for possibly ten years. Now this
has grown to be one of the important
industries of the State. Fruit, vegetable
and melon-growing has brought a great
many men to the State. With this new
blood come new ideas and from the old
days of cotton and sugarcane we have
advanced to fancy fruits and vegetables.
From the twister, the hoe and the buz-
7ard-win" sweep to the two-horse plows
Th freeze of 1895 was a very severe
blow to the State. It destroyed proper-
ties that were great revenue producers.
but, taken as a whole. I am fully con-
vinced that the destruction of the orange
groves was the second great calamity
that ultimately proved a blessing. The
freeing of our slaves was considered at
the time an insurmountable disaster. 1
am convinced the South would have never
developed to its present condition undei
the old slave system and I feel quite safe
in saying Florida would not at present
have the great diversity of profitable in
dustries had there been no freeze. 1
am quit-, sure that I would not have
thought of growing beef had I not lost
my grove. I would not be growing corn,
rats nor hay. I would not have thought
of a mowing machine, a twine hinder
nor a corn-harvester, a feed-cutter, nor
a gasoline engine.
Now. I am feeling that that I will
zrow, beef fit to ship to the Livwrpool
market, meeting the Iwef from all part-
of the world in fair competien hoth as to,
quality and cost of production. The
stockbreeder and farmer now proposes to
work up their raw material into til
finished product and we ask that the

ida take care of her woods, minerals and

Start at the foundation-farming.
Without this business in no other line
could be maintained, for from the farm
the world must get its meat and bread.
While our land may not make as many
Inshels of corn per acre as the prairie
lands of the West. the crop from an acre
will bring to our farmer as much cash
as the Western acre. because of the high-
t-r price. and make as much meat. anti
we don't have to une our corn to coun-
teract cold. as the West must. Our corn

West must ie making heat to ke-p their

Now come our fruits of numerous

MERCHANT MARINE COMMISSION.
Begins the Hearing of Suggestions in New
New York. May 23.-The merchant ma-
rine commission, authorized by the Fifty-
,-ighth Congress to consider and recom-
mend legislation for the development of
the American merchant marine, began its
first session here to-day. Among those
heard was C. B. Orcutt. president of the
Newport News Shipbuilding Company. who,
told the committee that ships can be built
in England for 75 per cent less than they
can be.built here. The cause of this dif-
ference, he asserted, was that 35 per cent
more was paid for labor in the yards of
this country than in Great Britain. and
at the sametime there is 40 per cent in the
cost of material in favor of the English
builders. He said the protective tariff was
responsible for the difference in cost of
material. In a later statement, however.
he corrected his estimate to from 40 to 5-,
per cent. Mr. Orcutt said that while a
few battleships had been built in Ameri-
can yards for foreign countries, he was
>f the opinion that they were not built
at a profit. He knew that American
builders made tenders to both Russia
and Japan. but although the bids were
almost down to cost they were rejected
absolutely as too high.
Rear-Admiral Bowles expressed similar
.pinion as to the cost of battleships and
the lack of profit in them. Lewis Nixon
favored differential duties. Thomas Clyde
spoke for subsidies.
The Need of Canneries.
Those of the Southern railroads who
are urging the establishment of canneries
along tt. ir lines, principally the Central of
Georg.a. Southern and Gulf & Ship Island,
are to be commended for this work. There
is money in canneries, and they are need-
ed at every point where a considerable
amount of fruit and vegetables are raised,
and their are now hundreds of these local-
ities along the lines of our roads.
Canneries can he established at small
.ost and with careful management they
ea nbe made to earn a handsome profit.
They are a blessing to any community, as
they furnish a home market for fruit and
vegetables, and at the same time give em-
ployment to a number of people.
There are thousands of dollars' worth
)f fruit raised that on account of delay
in -hipping, or from a wet season, is al-
owed to rot, that could be used to a good
advantage by a cannery if one were avail-
hile. (annrd goods are always in demand
and the demand is greatly increasing. The
2oods can Ih stored and shipped at such
seasons as they are in demand, while un-
manned fruit has to be shippel when it
ripens. no matter how glutted the market
nmay be. or else go to waste.
Canneries can be established from $250
up. and they may he owned individually
or by a group of farmers. The operation
is simple. and the work promises large
An instance of the demand for Southern
canned fruits in the Eastern markets was
recently called to the attention of the
writer. A Georgia lady canned each sea-
son, several hundred cans of blackberries.
1Her method of canning them made then a
desirablee product. and a New York brok-

Seymour Cross-Tie Hewer and Veneer Mill.
This Machine is One of the Greatest Inventions of the Twentieth Century.
The patent for this wonderful machine
was granted to Mr. B. H. Seymour, ot
Ocala, Fla., April 6, 1904, just as he had
installed in his mill the first working ma-
chine; on the lst of May, his mill and all
its contents were burned, but Mr. Seymour
is rebuilding the Tie Hewer as rapidly as
This machine more than doubles the
value of every cross-tie log by utilizing
It cuts a perfect cross-tie on the same
principle as a hand-hewn tie. being
smooth, perfectly square, accurate in size
and can be used in bridge or trestle work;
at the same time it cuts as good veneer-
for boxes or crate material-from the
green log, as any veneer mill in the world
will cut by steaming the log. This is
done by the downward sliding or lateral
stroke of the big knife. In short, by using
this machine, the stuff now wasted in
hewing out a log is cut off in veneers
which brings down the cost of tie-produc-
tion over one hundred per cent. There is

enough raw material now wasted itl the
State to make all tlie boxes and rates
necessary to ship all of FkIrida's mian
crops. In addition there can be no qius-
tion as to advantage in durability gained
Iby cutting veneers off a log that has all
its rosin in it instead of from steamed
logs. which process must necessarily take
some of the logs' sap out of it. The Sey-
mnour Cross-Tie Hewer only needs to bn-
seen to be appreciated. It will pay for
itself every three months; it should ce -
tainly be seen by every lumber and tie
man and crate manufacturer. It is in-
deed well worth careful examination; the
log. however large, is sliced by an enor-
mous knife giving the surface of the tie
the appearance of being hewn with a gi-
gantic broad-ax; this knife is ten feet
long. set so that one end is six inches low-
er than the other and working in vertical
guides, so that with its downward slid-
ing stroke. it cuts off the veneer in tan
thickness reluired-the feed being auto-
matically adjusted. The machine is sig-
gularly simple and can be readily repaired
by any ordinary machinist; it requires
I wo hands and a 3-horse power engine to
operate it. When it is figured that with
this e(ltilmient three hundred and fifty
t ;i a day can be manufactured and in
addition veneers enough made to keep a
c.ate faetry busy, the business economy
in using this machine must be clear to all.
The Record certainly advises a close ant
riiidl examination of this wonderful inven-
tion and feels confident that it is destined
to add largely to the output of the tim-
her districts. Any invention that makes
it possible to utilize raw material-previ-
ostly wasted--must be an advantage to
thi world. \\'W in the Southland are com-
imncKing to realize that we have been too
prodigal Nith our resources, have produu--
el too .wastefully and hence it is particu-
larly encouraging to find that a citizen
:lndI saw nill man of Florida should have
inv nted smuch a material saving appliance.
\Ir. 11. H. Seymour has several offers from
individuals desirous of purchasing State
or other interests in this invention, but
soi far has not closed with any.

In the year 1889 when Banker John F.
Dunn, of Ocala, Florida. staked everything
he had on a few samples of rocks he felt
pretty sure he had something good, but
he little dreamed that he was to be tihe
means of developing such an important
industry for the State of Florida and the
world at large as the phosphate mining
business has turned out to be. He little
dreamed that the hamlet of Dunnellon of
his days would assume the importance of
today where a Bank is talked of, where
brick buildings are common and whe:e a
steady stream of cars loaded with phos-
phate for the ports give proof of tile large
volume of business done. lie little dream
rd that the development of tile product
would lead to the opening up of new har-
bors and the building of new Railroads
and also the opening up of the riv als of
the State. tef little dreamed that the
phosphates of Florida would take their
place at the head i.f the market and make
the priee for all thi other phosphates ot
the world. It is admitted oni all side.,
that the Florida High grade phosphate
lock of 75, 80 per cent. has no c.inpeltitor-
either in quality, quantity or cheapness ol

five to twenty times the cost of original

ing it was not more than s.3.50 per ton.
making the total value of production !it.
South Carolina in 1889-4.4,060,337 with
a profit of $2.166.580. These prices wire
being maintained when the discovery of
Florida hard lock was male. The dis
covery cf the Florida product. whlichl often
runs above 80 per cent. phosphate of lime.
changed the whole condition ot thb phlos
phate trade. In the winter of 1889-90 the
first cargo of high grade phosphate was
shipped from Dunnellon. Fla.. to Liver-
po l, England, ant although mined and
cleaned by crude methods, analysed 75
per cent. and brought $27.00 per ton in
Liverpool. Other shipments followed with
equal good results in price and quality.
This naturally brought about a great fever
tof land speculation and cause. tlie o-
ganization of a great many phosplate
companies in rlorida. so mulchl so. that
when the United States Government sent
its officials to the State in 189.1 to inves-
tigate the industry, they found and re-
ortedi between 125 ani 1.50A companies or
ganized, and either mining or getting ready
to mine phlosldate r;ck, with an inflated
stock capitalization. Under these circunm-
stances the mining of rock became ver3
active. The miners being new in the busi
ness and having little experience in mar
k'ting the product and being utterly
without organization, compete I with each
other, and gave the consumers and dieal-
ers the greatest possible opportunity to
break down prices.
Thie following statement of slhlpment-
of high grade rock from all ports in Flor-
ida since th? discovery shows the increase
in volume of business done:

This makes a total up to the end of

table shows that the demand for the prod-
uct has risen from 18,363 tons in 1890 to
462,822 tons in 1903. The price obtained
by the miner is not at all commensurate
with the value of the material, and while
it is true that the situation is better to-
iny than it liha been at any time previous,
there is much to be accomplished in the
line of co-opiration and nothing but co-
iperat:on will accomplish the desired re-

tion was kept up for the entire twelve
months. The demand is very great. The
heaviest producer is Joseph Hull, of Sa-
vannah, who, besides operating the Com-
pany, he organized known as the Prairie
Pebble Phosphate Co., has absorbed the
lAnd Pebble Phosphate Co., and the two
plants of Louis McLain, one kno*n as
the Phosphoria Phosphate Co., and the
other operated under the name of the
Florida Engineering Company at Kings-
ford, Fla. There are one or two compa-
nies which still work independently.
Florida River Pebble Phosphate.
The shipment of this class of phosphate
amounted to 62,910 tons for the year 1903,
the plant of the Peace River Phosphate
Mining Company having been in operation
nearly the whole year. Until this past
year, it has been unproductive since Jan-
uary, 1902, when the entire plant was de-
stroyed by fire. The domestic market
absorbs all that this company can pro-
duce and could take double the quantity
if it could be mined. This is the only
company operating in the river pebble
section of Florida. A large investment is
necessary to produce the rock at all, the
Peace River Company having to maintain
about 50 miles of railroad track. The
dredging is done at one part of the prop-
erty, the crude product is carried to the
driers at another point several miles
away, placed in sheds there and then
barged to deep water. Many companies
have been organized to mine river pebble.

Business Conditions in Presidential Years.
According to an article in the World's
Work, there was an excess of gold exports
over gold imports in 1860, 1864, 1868, 1872,
1876, 1884, 1892, 1896 and 1900; in other
words, in every year of a presidential elec-
tion, but two, since the beginning of the
civil war. Since 1896 there has been only
one year in which more gold left the
country than came itno it, and that was
the year of the last presidential election.
In three election years since 1860 there
was a falling off in the circulation or
money. Three other elections were fol-
lowed by a decrease in circulation the next
year. The other elections do not appear
to have had any special effect in this par-
ticular. In 1876, 1884 and 1896 there was
a noticeable decline in loans and discount-
of the national banks. Bank clearings in
New York, which are a good barometer ot
the activity of speculation as well as ot
trade, declined in 1868, 1876, 1884, 1888
and 1900. They increased in 1872 anti
1880, and there was a very slight gain
in 1892. Bank clearings in the United
States declined in 1888 and 1900, and the
gains in 1802 and 1896 were so small as
not to indicate a normal growth. Cus-
toms receipts decreased in four presiden-
tial elections since 1868 Merchandise ex-
ports per capital declined in four such
years. There was a notable increase in
1892, a year which President Harrison
described as having reached the high-water
mark of American prosperity, though its
records have since been exceeded. In 1896b
the per capital exports were $12.29, against
$11.51 in 1895, but expanded to $14.42 the
year after the election. Pig iron produc-
tion declined in 1876, 1884 and 1896, and
practically stood still in 1888 and 1900.
All this indicates a decided disturbance
of business in presidential years.

What the London Oil and Colorman's
Journal Says of Wood Turpentine.
hne of the Record's most valued ex-
changes is the Oil and Colorman's Jour-
nal. of 19 Ludgate Hill, London. In its
issue of the 7th inst. appear two articles
on turpentine, on- speaking of the Amer-
ican wood product and the other sug-
gesting that rosin itself might be made
into turpentine. The following are the
The Chemical Reduction of Rosin to Spir-
its of Turpentine.
The literature of the turpenes is very
voluminous, but as far as any practical
suggestion is concerned, it is as barrel.
as it is bulky. The Americans are busy
imitating the Russians in extracting
spirits of turpentine from pine root tar.
It does not geem to have occurred to
them that it might be possible by chem
ical means to reduce rosin to spirits ot
turpentine by appropriate chemical treat-
ment. Rosin is a very valuable product,
which is grossly wasted in being dis-
tilled into rosin oil. Illuminating gas can
be made from rosin by modifying the
distilling process. Adopting a medium
course Lt tween gas and oil, who knows
what we might get. Or rosin oil might

case, rosin oil might find better uses
than as a cheap lubricant. Some of our
"res arch chemists might very well de
vote themselves to this matter.

FOREST FIRES AGAIN.
The Record makes this appeal to those
gentlemen who are again offering them-
selves as candidates for the legislature
before the second primary to take place
dh the 7th of June. prox.:
Will you, if selected as the nominee and
elected as representative to the next ses-
sion of the legislature, see to it that Flor-
ida has a forestry, fish and game commis-
sion for the protection of its forests, fish
There is plenty of law on the statute
books now, but what is wanted is ma-
chinery for enforcing the law,
We hear a great deal about the great
advantages of a railroad commission. The
courts held the railroads in restraint be-
fore the creation of the commission, and
there was not only a remedy, but the laws
were invoked to secure it. These men
were the sufferers and men can look out
Admitting its benefits, however, the
proposed forestry, fish and game commis-
sion is of infinitely greater importance to
this State than the railroad commission
can be for it will look out for the forests.
the fish and the game, tlhre great factors
in Florida's prosperity that cannot speak
lor themselves. Even as we write the
air is filled with the smoke of burning
forests all over the State, and this is
n arly June 1st. Millions of dollars worth
a few scrub cattle may have crisper graz-
ing. Hundreds of thousands of game birds
and animals have been burned up in the
woods. Millions of fish are being taken
to be converted into fertilizers in some
instances by men who are not citizens
To our brethren of tile State press, we
say please aid in this great work and
place the candidates on record in favor
of a forestry, fish and game commission,
as one of tle glorious results of the next
session of the Florida legislature.

The Daily Times-Union of May 25th
has tlhe following to say of the Record
and its work, for which we tip our hat
finished; the Japanese effected another in appreciation:
landing west of the Yalu; the investment
of Port Arthur both by sea and land was
declared complete; Dalny was captured,
and it was reported that lJapanese troops
had got in the rear of General Kuropat-
kiin' army. Later in the week, however,
news came that the Japanese had lost a
battleship. the Hatsuse, by the explosion
of a mine at Port Arthur, and a cruiser,
the I ohlino. which was rammed by a sis-
ter cruiser in a dense fog. Tile number
of inen lost is not definitely known, but
nily three hundred and ninety were saved
from both vessels. The latest reports tell
of a check to the Japanese advance, one
of the divisions of the Yalu army having
oeen driven back on Feng-Wang-Cleng
Iy) a superior IRussian force. One of the
noteworthy incidents of the week has been
thle alnulmnent by the Corean government
of all treaties with Russia.
IlJudge Thomas (G. Jones, of the United
States district court, in Birmingham, Ala.,

the Walker conspiracy case. Last sum-

No. 20. of the United Mine Workers, and

organization, were assaulted and whipped
while they were in Walker county on a
Inission of organizing local unions.
'IThe opinion concedes the right to form
labor unions, but says it is not one of the

If the constitution does not confer ju-

IT COMES HIGH.
'ITh Record notes that tile Savannah
Naval Stores Review has increased its
subscription price to $5 a year. Two
y ars ago this paper was published for $1
a year. At that time it had some circu-
lation among the producers. So memonths
ago, as it gradually became the organ of
the consumers, its subscription price was
advanced to $2.50 a year. Now, tllat it
is wholly the consumers' organ, it is mak-
ing til:.ml pay .$5. Rather steep, don't
vou think? And yet the consumers are
able, no doubt, to pay it; and, after all,
it is none of our business.

"The Record is one of the largest week-
ly trade journals in the United States.
\With the exception of the Baltimore Man-
ufacturers' Record, it is the largest and
imolt extensively circulated industrial
journal in the Southern States. Its suc-
cess has been phenomenal since it was
established in Jacksonville three or four
cyais ago, and one of the great factors in
its success has been its enterprise and the
progressive methods placed behind it. Mr.
J. A. Hiollomon, the editor and general
manager, is a newspaper man of wide ex-
perience, having been prominently con-
nected with 'some of the leading dailies
in the United States, as well as serving a
long time in the Congressional press gal-
lery as staff correspondent, and lie knows
journalism in its evrry phase. His meth-
od of making a paper with a first consid-
eration for the benefit of its patrons, and
the owners afterward, hias been a win-
ning card, certainly so far as the Record
is concerned. That paper is spending as
much or more money, perhaps, in aiding
the general industrial development of the
Southeastern States as in the more selfish
Method of aiding only itself. As Mr. Hol-
lnion explained in an article in a Noltii
ern journal recently: 'If this section ot
the South grows, the Industrial Record
will grow. My paper will keep pace with
that progress. If there is no industrial
progress, my paper cannot hope to pros
per. It is. therefore, just as essential that
the Record should aid in building up anu
developing the South as in building up
and developing itself. The latter will net-
essarily follow the former.' This view ,,t
the matter, carried out by energetic prac

possible touch with every movement being,

To Turpentine Operators.
Editor Industrial Record:
I have noticed for some time the con-
dition of a large quantity of the turpen-
tine received at Jacksonville and Fernan-
dina and it you will allow me space in
your valuable apaler, I would like to
Make a few 'suggestions, which, if care-
fully followed, will greatly reduce the loss
alused froin leaking and turning.
I hav, Iheen for a number of years en-
gaged in the handling of turpentine and
1,utting it in merchantable order, and
have had the care of as much as 10,000
barrels at a time, and have given the
inatter lluuch study.
Preparation of Glue.
U se about three parts glue and four
parts water. Boil from one and a half to
two hours. Stir often and be careful to
see that it doe's not scorch. The necessity
for cooking thoroughly is to get the water
entirely out, if this is not done, the glue
will not stick to the wood-in fact it will
hardly color the wood inside, and your
time and glue are both wasted and in ad-
dition to this possibly a lot of turpentine
Use Good Glue.
By all means use a high grade of hide
glu,. Cheap glue is dear at any price
and it is as money thrown away to buy
it. A good glue can be had at from 12
to 14 cents per pound. To illustrate-
You use an 8 or 9 cent glue in a ship-
mnent of. say, 48 barrels; it will .lo. hold
and tile inspector will more than likely
have to turn 25 or 30 barrels, and there
has probably beL n 8 or 10 gallons lost by
leakage. while in transit, and you are out
alout twelve dollars. Use good glue and
prepare it properly. There is no economy
in losing a gallon of turpentine at 54c.
trying to save 5 cents on a pound of glue.
Almost 'every day my attention is called
to a number of barrels that have been
turned on account of leaking and the heads
have been taken out and there is absolute-
ly no sign of glue in them, a good many
..eing the .saml, color inside as outside.
F'or the first coat use a thin, hot glue.
Let tile barrel stand drive two or three
lays. drive the hoops well and Olue the
-econld tine, using a coat of thick glue,
allow ing half a Ipund or more to the bar-
.rl. If these rules are followed carefully
the turning will be reduced to a minimum
-po-sildl not more than five per cent.
.\ barrel to hold turpentine must be of
lirstelass material, well seasoned and well
made. The following are the specifications
laid down by the Savannah Board of
"Packages must be well made new or
second-hand hIrrels, holding from 48 to 54
gallons gross; staves of white oak, heads
of white oak. or white ash, all well sea-
soned anid not less than three-quarters of
an inch thick for the staves and three-
,luarters to one inch for the heading, when
I would especially urge all operators to
insist on having a tirst-class barrel.

j Meeting of the Industrial Agents
( of the Southeastern Railroads,
j**0 o ..-***-ii86 i-mw-9-4l-- .f
A meeting was held at the Southern Ho-
tel in St. Louis last week of the South-
eastern Railway Land and Industrial
Agents' Association, which includes in its
membership the Southern Railway, At-
lantic Coast Line, Seaboard Air Line, Nor-
folk and Western, Central of Georgia, Illi-
nois Central, Louisville and Nashville,
Nashvile, Chattanooga & St. Louis, Geor-
gia Southern & Florida, Georgia Railroad.
Macon, Dublin & Savannah Railroad,
Florida East Coast Railway, Frisco Sys-
tem, Georgia, Florida & Alabama, Atlanta
& West Point, Wrightsville & Tennile,
Mobile & Ohio, Alabama Great Southern,
Tallulah Falls Railway, W. & A. R. R.
The purpose of the Association is to pro
mote harmonious work for the develop-
ment of the States lying east of the
Mississippi and south of the Ohio and Po-
tomac Rivers, and tak>e up matters con-
cerning immigration into the southeast
from northern states and from Europe.
Nearly all of the railroads represented
in this new association have been engaged
in immigration and industrial work, and
most of them have regularly constituted
departments for handling it. The result of
this work in the past has been very satis-
factory and had much to do with the re-
cent growth of the Southern States. Man)
matters have arisen in connection with the
handling of the work which have shown
that- co-operative efforts on the part of
the different railroads would greatly as-
sist the settlement of farm lands in the
South by homeseekers, and that by keep-
ing in close touch with each other, the
railroads would be able to greatly benefit
the whole Southern country.
It was shown that there are to-day in
the Southeastern States many millions of
acres of land suited for farming and for
horticulture, which are not now under cul-
tivation. As these lands present the best
opportunities for the general farmer, the
cotton producer, the grain raiser, the stock
man, and the fruit grower, it is deemed
important that even more active work
than ever be done in bringing before
iionumtskers the advantages of the South,
especially in the way of available lands.
I ie Railroad Land and Industrial Agents'
Association also has in mind the most ac-
Live co-operation with the people of dif-
ferent sections of the South in the devel-
opment of their respective districts, and
iill lose no opportunity to induce local
people to co-operate with them.
Reports were made to the Association
from different fields of work along the
lines represented, and these reports were
all of the most favorable character re-
garding tie dl'velopmlenti of the South-
eastern States, and the outlook in tile
way of crops and in general prosperity for
die future is very bright. From many
hdstricts were reported increasing demands
lor farm lands, the putting of new fields
into cultivation, and of the gradual in-
crease in the value of farm property. Out-
side of the reported increase in the cot-
ion acreage in the South for this year
it was also made evident that the South
is to have a heavy increase in the fruit
yield. Outside of a few districts the fruit
crop was reported to be very large. The
shipments of strawberries from tire more
southern districts this 'season have been
niiuch larger than ever before, and this
will also Iw true of the more northern
districts which are now in the midst of
their shipping season. The number of
peach and apple trees set out during
the past year was very heavy, and a very
large nuinlber of both will bear fruit this
sunnilir and fall for th" first time.
The representatives of all railroads
reaching the fruit districts agreed that the
increase in business from those districts
in 11M4 would amount to at least 30 per
cent. over any pleviou's year. There con-
tinue to be in all sections of the South
a steady ilnuiry on the part of capital-
is.t from other sections of tie country
:or investment in tiimlsr lands and fac-
( ry properties. and local capital is also
going into industrial interests more wx-
ttl niively than heretofore. Money for
investment in industrial plants seems to
. e plenty in all districts of the South.
I'roll the mineral sections increased de-
velopmnents were also reported.

New York, May 27-The position of the
cotton market begins to look decidedly in-
teresting. For some time the average
trader has been laboring under the beliet
that there was nothing in store for the
market but lower prices as the natural
result of over speculation with its favor-
able start. Selling has been general and
for weeks it has been difficult to find any
one in the market willing to buy a hun-
dred bales of cotton for higher prices.
There seems to be no question that the
market is short. The only traders have
been the bears who were bears at 9 1-2'
cents last Fall and have been bears ever
since. The South has sold a good deal ot
cotton for Fall delivery and the temper
of the trade has been bearish to a ma.l.
The course of prices has encouraged this
position and for a month there has been
money on that side of the market. But if
present accounts from the South can ibe
relied upon, there is a rude awakening
in store and it begins to look as though
it might not be very far off. Last week

and a half of spirits to a barrel of gum, to say nothing of the improved grade in rosin made
by using our large, rapid condensing worm and smooth boiling kettle, which heat uniformly
and generate the steam in a manner that no spirits are allowed to dry up before reaching the
condenser. Twenty (20) outfits shipped last month, but a full stock left to select from.
