MEN WHO ARE MAKING THE SOUTH
Portrait Number Six-W. B. Conoley, of Valdosta, Ga., one of the Wealthiest and Most
Prominent Turpentine Operators andGeneral Developers in the Southern States.
W. B. CONOLEY, OF VALDOSTA, GA.
The subject of this sketch, W. B. Conoley, of Valdosta, Ga., has for years been regarded "a one of the most suacems-
ful turpentine men operating in the Southern pine belt--successful as a manager, successful in accumnlating for a rainy
day, successful as a public-spirited, liberal, progressive citizen. Mr. Conoley, now one of the wealthiest men who go
to make up the industrial life of Georgia and Florida, is distinctively a self-made man. He came to Boston, Ga.,
in 1890 from his home in North Carolina, in debt for his railroad fare. He rode the woods, stilled and otherwise
worked around a turpentine place at a moderate salary until 1894. when he decided to embark for himself, despite the
fact that he had nothing but his good intentions to operate on. He started in business strictly in debt in Colquitt Coun-
ty, Georgia, and in the eleven years that have elapsed since Mr. Conoley paid off his original debts and is today a prop-
erty owner in three Southern States, the owner of city property in at least five Southern cities, and is also large
stockholder in the Consolidated Naval Stores Co., the Naval Stores Export Co., in three or four banks, including the
Florida Bank and Trust Co., of Jacksonville. He is president of the newly organized Mexican Naval Stores and Timber
Co. He is not now actively engaged in operating and in his own words, he says, "I am now trying to live after work-
ing hard all my life." He owns one of the most beautiful homes at Valdosta, Ga., and is one of the most progressive
citizens of that prosperous Georgia city. Mr. Conoley is yet a young man, just forty, and a bigger hearted, more lib-
eral, more progressive man never lived. Such a man is a credit to any State and community, and it is such men
that are building the South to-day.
4 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
PERRY,-A Thriving Florida Town,
Her Past, Present and Future
(By A. H. Marsh-,Special Staff Correspondents)
Only four years ago Perry, Fla., was a
little cross-rods town resting unsought
for and alone in the great pine forests
of Taylor County. A court house, post
office, church, school, two or three stores
and a boarding house constituted her com-
mercial and social importance. Her popu-
lation was two hundred. The town was
isolated, so far as railroad or telegraph
communications were concerned.
The Perry of Today.
To-day Perry is a thriving town of
over 1,000 population, the terminus of
three railroads and the objective point of
two others. She has two banks, two
newspapers, -three hotels, three churches,
about twenty-five retail business houses,
a wholesale grocery business, electric
lights, telephones, a prospective water-
works and sewerage system, many new
and comodius residences, and a general
air of thrift and culture.
The Perry of Tomorrow.
It is easy to predict the Perry of to-
morrow. Its future is bright. With the
rapid development of the State, and with
the forests of other sections developed and
gone. the kings of industry and wealth
have turned their attention to Taylor

Among the attractions of the county are
Econfenee, Hampton and Emerson Springs,
the llanipton Iwing the most noted. The
sparkling waters of this spring bring
forth from the great laboratories of na-

not be reached by the treatment of skill-

What Transportation Means.
The entrance of transportation facilities
into this virgin country means the estab-
lishing of large saw mills and other indus-

scale, and these enterprises will use Perry
as thlie Iase of operations in a business
and financial way.
A Railroad Centei.
It was in the latter part of 1902 that
the first railroad reached Perry. It was
then the Suwannee & San Pedro Railroad
and its northern terminus was Live Oak.

TAYLOR COUNTY, FLA,
A Fine Health and Pleasure Resort in the
Tall Pines of Taylor County,
Many Wonderful Cures Effected by the Waters of this Spring
For many years the curative powers of the waters
0of Hampton Springs have been known to the people of Tay-
lor and the surrounding counties in fact, the fame of the
Spring has extended beyond the state line. Hundreds of
people have made yearly pilgrimages here undergoing the
hardships of overland travel by private conveyance that they
might receive the benefit of its health giving waters.
Owing to its inaccessibility and lack of railroad faci-
lities in this section, the Springs have never been improved
or advertised to the outside world. But with the advent
of railroads into Taylor county the owners have erected a
commodious and comfortable hotel, with large, airy rooms,
and broad halls and verandas for the accommodation of those
who wish to sojourn here in quest of health and pleasure.
A large bathing pool has also been built. Being constantly
fed from the Spring the water is always fresh and charged
with its health giving properties.
Hampton Springs is situated in the heart of the pine
forests, and is six miles from Perry. The hotel stands on
a knoll overlooking a stream, which is overhanging with
The waters of this Spring have effected wonderful
cures of rheumatism, stomach troubles, dyspepsia, indiges-
tion and kidney troubles of every kind. Hundreds of strong
testimonials attest the curative fames of the waters.
Captain A. Y. Hampton, the proprietor of the Springs
is well-known throughout Florida. He has been connected
with the Atlantic Coast Line head quarters at Lake City
for many years. He resigned his position with the company
on January 1st in order to give his undivided attention to
this property. He proposes to make Hampton Springs one
of the most popular health and pleasure resorts in the state.
He will not spare money or exertion to this end. Many im-
provements will be made from time to time. The hotel will
be run on a high plan. The table will be unexcelled and
game will always be served in season. No section of Florida
offers more to the sportsman. In the open pine forests
nail are abundant and in the dry hickory hammocks squir-
rels, wild turkey and deer are plentiful.
The waters of Rocky Creek teem with fine fish of
Reasonable rates prevail at the homelike hotel, and
everything is done for the comfort of its guests. If you are

In spite of the increased imports of
French and the growing use of such sub-
stitutes as Russian turpentine, rosin spir-
it, etc., the main source of supply is still
the United States, the only serious com-
petitor being France, and she has no large
tracts of forest in reserve as America has.
France can work her pines to the ut-
most while the sun of high prices shines,
this she has done and is doing; but, by
law, the French are not allowed to de-
stroy their forests as the Americans have
done in the Carolinas and Georgia.
Spanish turpentine is a factor of grow-
ing importance, but this spirit does not
reach Great Britain, better prices being
obtainable in Spain and in Central Eu-
It must be remembered that the use
of turpentine in Great Britain tends to
increase at the rate of about 4 per cent
per annum. That this increase has not
been apparent for four years is due to
the use of substitutes.
Imports of Russian turpentine to the
United Kingdom were in 1901 6,861 barrels
or 3.41 per cent of the tota import, and
in 1905, 22,626 barrels, or 13.74 per cent
of the total import.
Moreover, it is to be noted that re-
centy imports from Russia have practi-
cally ceased, owing to the political troub-
les in the Baltic Provinces. ....

tine in London was in-

The exports from France have been on
an unprecedeirtedly large scale. They were
1902, 3,557 tons (of 1,00 kilos); 1903,
7,592 tons; 1904, 5,596 tons; 1905 (11
months only), 12,042 tons.
This large export has so denuded the
country that is highly improbable that
France can again export 30,000 barrels in
the first five months of 1906, as she did
in 1902. 3,557 tons (of 1,000 kilos); 1903.
the French supply should not be equal to
her domestic needs until the appearance of
the new turpentine.

place at Savannah and Jacksonville, and
the price has since risen to 9s. 6d. ex

tuated less wildly. The import of Amer-
ican pale rosin into the United Kingdom
has greatly fallen off and French has very
largely taken its place

The Dowling Lumber and Naval Stores
Company, of Live Oak, one of the largest
and most progressive lumber and naval
stores firms in the State, has just closed
a deal whereby they purchased 14,000 acres
of choice sawmill timber in Taylor County.
The timber was purchased from the John
R. Young Company and the Blue Creek
Turpentine Company, which firms have
other large holdings in that vicinity.
The Dowling Lumber and Naval Stores

a large sawmill on the newly purchased
land and will operate the mill on an ex-

This company is now building a railroad
from a point just west of the Suwannee

NEW STEAMSHIP LINE FOR JACK-
Jacksonville is to have another steam-
ship line-and the first steamer will reach
port about the first of February.
IH.L I:Richardson, the well known con-
tractorh has been advised by a Philadel-
phia firm, that shortly after February 1,
the Southern Steamship Company's steam-
ers wod'd put into Jacksonville, and that
a bill of goods ordered by him, would be
shipped via that line.
No o03r authentic information could be
secured yesterday, but the fact that a new
steamsaip line woudl be established be-
tween Jacksonville and Philadelphia was
Some time ago agents of some steamship
company visited Jacksonville and went to
Mayport, where the docks at that point
were eftmined; also docks along the city
waterfront, but whether or not this steam-
ship agept was interested in the line now
talked of is not known.
The Southern Steamship Company runs
a line of steamers between Tampa, Key
West and Philadelphia, handling both
freight and passengers. The steamers on
this line are the Algiers, a passenger and
freight vessel, and the Shumot, a freight
George R. Dilkes, of Philadelphia, is the
president of this line; E. W. Savage is
secretary; H. P. Dilkes, manager; Charles
P. Grether, traffic manager; John Bradley,
Southern agent at Tampa, and Mason E.
Moreno, agent at Key West.
It is now firmly believed that the South-
ern Steamship Company will have their
ships stop at Jacksonville both ways to de-
liver and receive freight. The establish-
ment of a new line of steamers in this
city will be gladlly welcomed by all, and
from the advices received here by Mr.
Richardson, it appears that the line is
positively to be established about February

sedes Car Service Rule No. 3 A, viz:
"Cars containing freight consigned to the

(48) hour Car Service Rule, except that
upon cars containing forest products (not
including naval stores) for coastwise

port, a maximum of four days running

agent is advised within forty-eight (48)
hours after arrival of the freight that
such disposition will be made of same."
A New Saving in the Turpentine Industry.
The recent experiments of the Forest
Service, designed to concerve the life of
turpentine trees, gives promise of remark-
able success. It is believed that the im-
provements tested in these experiments
will, in addition to prolonging the life of
the trees, greatly increase their total yield
When the cup and gutter system of
turpentining was introduced by the For-
est Service some three years ago, the
economy which it secured led to its adop-
tion on a large scale by southern turpen-
tine producers. What lends this system
its great value is the fact that it does
away with the old practice of "boxing,"
which consists in cutting a deep cavity
or "box" at the base of the tree for the
purpose of catching and holding the resin
which flows from the chipped "face" of
the tree trunk above. In place of the
"box" an earthenware cup, of the same
capacity, is fastened to the tree. To
this the flowing resin is directed by means
of metal gutters. The disuse of the "box"
effected a two-fold gain-first, a saving of
'the deep, fatal wound in the base of the
tree, and consequently a conservation of
its vitality; and second, much less waste
in the gathering of the product, with a
greater yield of turpentine and better
grades of resin.
While this decided improvement spared
the tree very considerably, the method of
chipping "faces" to stimulate resin flow
remained unchanged. This in itself ne-
cessitates a deep wound, which, it is be-
lieved, exhausts the vitality of the tree
more than is necessary. Exhaustion is evi-
dent from the fact that after the first
AN IMPORTANT DEAL.
One of the largest and most important
deals that has taken place in the naval
stores and timber line for a long time was
consummated yesterday by Mr. Herbert G.
Stone, general manager of the Florida
Realty Company of this city.
Through this deal Mr. T. B. Handle
forms a partnership with Mr. John H. Pitt
to develop timber holdings located within
twelve miles of Jacksonville, lying along
the St. Johns river on the south side and
extending to the Atlantic coast eastward.
This is a large tract of land, and a num-
ber of persans have made handsome offers
for it in the past, but all have been re-
Taking into consideration the valuable
naval stores and timber interests to be
developed in this vast tract, lying so con-
venient to Jacksonville, it is considered
that there is more than one million dol-
lars involved in the formation of this part-
It was learned yesterday that Mr. Pitt
and Mr. Handley will at once form a stock
company to develop the proposition, con-
sisting of some 50,000 acres of the finest
virgin yellow pine timber.
Mr. Stone is to be congratulated upon
effecting the combination of these enter-
prising gentlemen, and it is believed that
there will be no trouble in forming a stock
company to put in the necessary machin-
ery and plants for operating and securing
results from this splendid piece of prop-
Quite recently Mr. Stone has made sev-
eral large sales of phosphate lands in
South Florida. One tract is in Hernando
County, near Bay City. The Florida Real-
ty Company makes a specialty of hand-
ling timber lands, farm lands, orange
groves and city property.
BOUGHT TIMBER LANDS.
C. H. Better of Live Oak yesterday,
through the Brobston, Fendig Company,
purchased 20.0000 acres of sawmill timber
in the vicinity of Riverland, in the south-
eastern part of Hernando County.
Mr. Tetter is now arranging to erect
a large sawmill on the land to market the
timlwxr on his newly purchased tract.
This land is said to be one of the finest
tracts i nthe neighborhood of Riverland.
year the yield quickly falls off, and the
"tbtal productive period is also limited. A
further step in advance to supplement the
gains already secured by the cup and gut-
ter system was therefore sougt in the
new plan. This aimed to reduce the size
and number of "fkces" chipped without
diminishing the flow of resin.
In the experiments carried out during
the past season the first object was to
show that at least an equal ok of resin can
be secured from shallower and shorter
"faces." The success of these experiments
has tentatively established the practica-
bility of this plan. A great saving natu-
rally results for by reducing gthe depth and
the superficial extent of the wound the
drain on the vitality of the tree is reduced,
and at least an equal yield is secured,
without discounting the product of future
years. Under the old system the annual
yield gradually falls off, largely in conse-
quence of the formation of "dray-face,"
which is a kind of local death, affecting
the exposed wood of the tree.
It is highly probable that with this
diminution in the severity of the opera-
tion the ordinary term of three or four
years during which a forest is now worked,
can be greatly increased. This means not
only a larger total return, and consequent-
ly larger profits, but also that the invest-
ment period for turpentining capital is
lengthened, a fact which especially appeals
to the investor.
The experiments are being conducted in
cooperation with the Hillman-Sutherland
Company, which last year placed four
crops of trees, of about 8,000 trees each,
at the disposal of the Forest Service, and
for the season of 1906 has consented to
supply still more timber to further the
MORE COTTON BURNED.
Norfolk, Va., Jan. 24.-The Internat-
ional Compress Company's cotton com-
press on the Elizabeth river here, together
with much stored cotton in the warehouse
and sheds of Rogers, McCabe & a., were
burned early this morning, and an inter-
vening wall of oyster shells was the only
thing that saved from destruction the
property of the Norfolk Warehouse Assee-
iation's ice plant and many more bales of
cotton stored in adjoining warehouses. Ja-
cob Jacobs, a white laborer at the burned
compress, was asleep in the building at
the time and was suffocated. Henry Shu-
madine, engineer, who was asleep in the
compress, barely escaped with his life. The
loss is placed at $100,000, covered by insu-
The fire is supposed to have originated
from crossed electric wires. About 1,00
bales of cotton were damaged, with a
possible salvage of 50 per cent.
DEEPER WATER FOR BRumSwIKaL
Washington, Jan. 22.-Chief of Engi-
neers Mackenzie has sent to Congress a re-
port upon the project for deeper water at
Brunswick, in which he concurs with the
views of the district engineer and the
board of engineers recommending a thirty-
foot channel in the inner and outer har-
bors at Brunswick.
This improvement can, it is thought,
be made by the expenditure of not more
than $500,000, and this report places the
project where, when there is a river and
harbor bill, it will not be necessary to ask
any further surveys, but the necessary ap-
propriation can be made without further
The last river and harbor bill contained
a provision for survey for the purpose of
equalizing the depths at Brunswick, there
now being about twenty-eight feet in the
inner harbor and twenty-six on the outer
bar. There was also a provision for a
preliminary examination of Brunswick
harbor and several others under conditions
which authorized a survey automatically
in case of approval by the board of en-
gineers upon the report of the-resident
engineer. This report was highly favor-
able, and the- survey was accordingly or-
dered by the board of engineers.
This approval by Gen. Mackenzie places
the project where it is certain of being
put through in the near future.

THE YELLOW PINE FIELD.
The report of the Yellow Pine Clearing
House for November, received too late for
analysis in the last issue of the Journal,
covers the operations of 208 mills report-
ing and shows an increase in stock for
the month of 40,130,216 feet. The increase
for the preceding month was 10,237,993
feet, or for the two months it was 50,368,-
209 feet, as against a decrease during the
previous nine months-of 142,532,405 feet,
or a net decrease for the 11 months of
92,164,196 feet. This showing considered
in connection with the remarkable per-A
sistence of the demand, as brought out4
at St. Louis on December 27, was deemed
a sufficient warrant by the committee on
values and others present or represented
at that conference, for the advances ree-
ommended at the time. Elsewhere in this
issue there appears a circular letter from
the committee on values more fully ana-.
lyzing the data under consideration. How-
ever opinions may differ as regards the
wisdom of this action, it is significant
that the line marking the division also
largely divides the selling and buying
classes of the trade. There were a few
manufacturers who were satisfied with
the last preceding list, but as shown by
the committee, a very large majority de-
clared for an advance. Undoubtedly this
sentiment was based on the state of trade
reflected in the books as well as judgment
of individual members. In particular, it
was found that with stocks abnormally de-
pleted and badly assorted, there were
not only orders enough to keep the mills
busy an average of possibly 60 days, but
the demand was still unseasonably press-
ing. Add to these incidents the feeling
almost universally concurred in, that 1906
is to witness no relaxation of trade aetiv-
it yand the committee was certainly well
sustained in its position by the facts of
the situation. It only remains for the
mills to pursue a strictly conservative
producing policy as a necessary supple-
mentary course to safeguard the position
now occupied against every manner of
assault. Buyers are even now talking free-
ly about the stimulating influences of the
prevailing high level of prices upon pro-
duction and the incidental probability of
a consequent surplus. That kind of talk
is, of course, neither new nor necessarily
conclusive, but it affords manufacturers
a hint that can hardly be despised.
In spit of the unusual advances of the
year 1905 and the comparatively high cur-
rent prices, it even yet cannot be said
that yellow pine lumber is either intrin-
sically or relatively extremely high. Ex-
cept as its territorial producing tenure
may be curbed by notrehrn and far-west-
ern competition, yellow pine as an all-
around structural wood annually becomes
more and more the dependence of the coun- I
try outside of the sections mentioned.
With the exception of the Pacific coast
belt those sections are undergoing, and
will continue to undergo, constantly di-
minishing production, while, as a matter
of fact. the yellow pine industry is prob-
ably to some extent even yet in process
of expansion rather than shrinkage. As
some of the Journal's corresoondents are
fond of saying, yellow pine "has the call."
The wood was a long time in attaining to
this distinction and the struggle was mean-
while not only in other respects extremely
disheartening. hut unprofitable besides.
Under all of these circumstances, there is
every reason why the yellow pine people .
should have an inning and the show they
are finally in ap position to enjoy.-Lum-
tbr Trade Journal.

LAND INJUNCTION IS DISSOLVED.
Tallahassee, Jan. 23.-\After hearing ar-
gument of counsel on motion to dissolve
the temporary injunction granted in the
case of the Tallahassee Southeastern Rail-
way Company against the Trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund, Judge John
W. Malone, of the Second Circuit, sitting
at Quincy, today entered an order dis-
solving the temporary injunction.
This is a victory for the Trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund, who were
represented by their general counsel, For-
mer Governor W. S. Jennings nd Attorney
general W. H. Ellis.
It will be remembered that this injunc-
tion was asked recently by the Tallahas-
see Southeastern Railway Company, which
sought to enjoin the trustees from selling
or otherwise disposing of a certain tract of
more than one hundred thousand acres of
land in Taylor and ,afayette Counties,
which the railroad company claims under
BIG CARGO FROM PENSACOLA.
Pensacola. Jan. 25.-One of the largest
cargoes of naval stores to be loaded at this
port during the past year, was cleared yes-
terday on the steamer Eretria for Liver-
pool and 'Manchester. In- fact the amount
of naval stores loaded on the vessel is
about the largest ever shipped from this
The cargo amounts to 20.000 barrels of
rosin and 1.000'barrels of turpentine, hav-
ing a large valuation.
The steamer commenced taking on cargo
last Wednesday at noon. making exactly
one week that the workmen were engaged
in storing this immense amount of freight.
Another steamer, the Kirkswald, which
has jutrt arrived, will also take on a big
cargo of naval stores, making the ship-
ment of this product from Pensacola dur-
ing January exceptionally large.
