As the Weekly Industrial Record goes
* to press the first quarter of the year 1906
is closing. With a view of giving to its
many readers the conditions existing for
the first quarter of the year and the pros-
pects for the future The Record has made
the same careful inquiries in reference
to trade and to the industrial and finan-
cial condition of the State that it made
and presented at the first of the year.
When the reports from our correspond-
ents in various parts of Florida came to
hand at the beginning of the year, every
correspondent, covering the various
phases of the industrial and financial life
for his particular section, spoke in the
most encouraging terms of the conditions
existing at that time. The reports just in
from every part of the State as well as
interviews with the business men of Jack-
sonville are to the effect that the proph-
esies made at the beginning of the year
have more than been met and that the
future offers only the greatest encourage-
ment. In every line of trade, in every
line of industry the same is true. The
naval stores, the lumber, the truck farm-
ing, the fruit growing, the stock raising
and in fact all the industries, enterprises
and trades of Florida are in a more pros-
perous and more promising condition now
than ever were in the past and with every
prospect in the future.
Some of the letters received offer the
greatest encouragement. The following
are the reports so far received:
Pensacola suffered to a certain extent
on account of the troubles of the past
summer, but they were not sufficient to
stay the progress which this city has been
making for the past several years. Every
branch of trade and every industry is
prospering. I have seen the bankers and
all of them state that the city's business
for the first quarter this year is far ahead
of last. The growth appears substantial
and only the very best is promised for the
future. The greatest activity is evident
in the building line, which is always a cri-
terion to go by. Several magnificent
blocks are in course of construction. The
deposits at the banks exceed those of last
year for the same period.
Progress here continues apace. The city

DADE PROTESTS AGAINST DRAIN-
Times-Union Bureau, Miami, March 30.
-Since the order has been issued direct-
ing the tax collector of this and other
counties to collect the drainage tax, there
has leen more dissatisfaction shown than
previously. Numerous letters are being
written expressing in most positive terms
the disapprobation of the writers. Under
the present conditions, the small land hold-
ers of the counties must bear the burden
of draining State lands. If the lands are
ever drained the entire State will receive
the benefit from their sale, while the peo-
ple of the several counties have paid the
entire expense of the work. This the tax-
payers in the so-called drainage districts
object to. If they are forced to drain
these lands, being yearly taxed for that
purpose, the lands when drained should be
the property of those who have furnished
the money to accomplish the work. If the
State is to own the lands when drained,
the entire landed property in the State
should be taxed to do the work, as the
State would sell the lands and the monies
received for them would go into the State
treasury. It is also the opinion of many
who own pine lands bordering on the
Glades, that the drainage of this great
tract of land would have a very detrimen-
tal effect upon this class of lands. This is
especially true of the pine lands in Dade
county. Much of the tract known as the
Everglades is considerably higher than the
pine lands. The rock being of a porous
nature, the water is forced upward, giving
to this southern section one of the most
complete sub-irrigation plants known, or
that has ever been devised. By lowering
the water level it is claimed that it will
be a great damage to the property owners
in this section. Just why the few land
owners in Dade county should be taxed to
drain State lands, the State receiving the
entire benefit, is an unsolved problem to
us poor crackers. Might makes right, but

Progress Made by the Industry During
the Past Five Years.
During the past five years the capital in-
vested in the cottonseed oil and cake in-
dustry in this country has more than
doubled and the value of the products has
increased nearly 65 per cent.
Statistics prepared by the census bu-
reau comparing the year ending Decem-
ber 31, 1904, with that ending May 31,
1900, show a great increase in number of
establishment and extent of products. The
fiscal year of many of the establishments
engaged in this industry ends during the
fall. The establishments were given the
option of making their reports for the
fiscal year or for the calendar year cov-
ered by the census. Therefore, the statis-
tics for all of the establishments do not
cover the same period of 12 months.
One of the interesting features of these
statistics is the quantity and value of the
cottonseed crushed and the quantity and
value of the primary products obtained
from the seed. These primary products
are subjected to further manufacturing
processes, the crude oil being refined and
large quantities of the other products used
in the manufacture of fertilizer, cattle.
feed, etc. The total value of the primary
products was $69,406,463, which includes
all products obtained directly from the
cottonseed. The $96,407,621 shown as the
gross value of the finished products of all
establishments engaged in the industry in-
cludes the duplications incident to the

SLACK COOPERAGE WOODS.
The Species Used for Barrels, Kegs, and
Tube Studied by the Government.
Three hundred million barrels, according
to trustworthy estimates, as manufactured
every year. Of these, probably the greater
number are used to hold solid contents,
such as flour, sugar, cement, lime and po-
tatoes or other farm products, and are
called "slack" barrels, as distinguished
from "tight" barrels, which are used for
oil, liquors, wines and other fluids. Woods
suitable for slack cooperage are commoner
and cheaper than those used for tight bar-
rels, which were once made almost ex-
clusively from the finest white oak ob-
tainable, and which must always require
material of a high grade. Nevertheless,
slack barrels of the better grade, notably
flour barrels, require material which, like
elm, is rapidly becoming scarcer. With
the enormous drain on supplies, manufac-
turers are already feeling the need of
economizing in the use of the rarer woods
and of finding serviceable substitutes
among those more plentful.
In the past the cooperage industry,
which is highly fastidious in its choice of
woods, has culled the best large trees on
hundreds of thousands of acres of forest,
from which it cannot again obtain mate-
rial for a long period. Moreover, the
amount of wood discarded in slack-coop-
erage manufacture is necessarily very
large, ranging from 45 per cent of the
timber in staves to 74 per cent in head-
ings. This discarded wood is in large part
not usable for cooperage, but some of it
could, in many cases, be used for the
manufacture of small dimension stuff and
other similar products. Here, again, as in
the case of lumbering, lumber manufac-
ture, and wood-working industries in gen-
eral, the question of the utilization of
waste assumes prime importance. The
necessary consumption of all wood prod-
ucts noto only must continue, but must
continue to grow, and conservation of re-
sources must largely take the form of
substituting use for waste. To convert the
great waste of the slack-cooperage mills
into salable products, and thus to restrain
needless forest destruction, merits, there-
fore, careful study.
In consequence of this two-fold drain
upon supplies, first, in the exploitation of
the forest and, second, in the high per-
centage of loss at the mill, slack cooperage
must now depend on small holdings for
supplies. In the Northern States it is,
like the vehicle industry, commonly forced
to go to the farmer's woodlot to secure
timber of the needed dimensions and qual-
ity. Even as it is, the average life of a
hoop mill in Ohio is only about four years,
after which the manufacturer either goes
out of business or moves to fresh fields.
Throughout that State and Michigan the
large number of abandoned cooperage mills
and the constant shutting down of ex-
pensive modern plants indicate the ex-
haustion of the region. Under the pres-
sure of these conditions the industry is
shifting steadily southward.
Manufacturers of slack-cooperage woods
are well aware, from their long experience.
of the difficulties which beset their busi-
ness, and are ready to profit by any prin-
ciples which a broad study of its conditions
may bring out. Such a study, however.
they do not feel in a position to carry on
individually. For this reason the United
States Forest Service has taken up the
subject, with a view to ascertaining what
improvements and economies in manu-
* facture are practicable; what woods car
be added to the present list of cooperage
woods; what woods are best adapted foi
each purpose in cooperage; and what are
the amounts of wood consumed in the in
A preliminary study of slack-cooperag4
problems has already been completed foi
the North Central, Central and some oi
the Eastern States. This has served t<
suggest several lines of special investiga
tion which are to be taken up in turn bI
the Service, and in addition, has brought'
out in some detail the requirements whicl
cooperage woods must fill.
For barrel staves the best woods ar
those which are pliable, strong, clear o
imperfections, of light weight, and prefer
ably of bright appearance. In the bes
grades of barrels, such as flour barrels
staves, combining all these requisites ar
demanded. Elm is one of the few w-loil
now used whliicli Issess them. Where
foodstufl's liable to le tainted with a for-
eign flavor are packed. as in the case of
butter, none but tasteless woods are suit-
able. These requirements narrow the
choice of woods to such species as spruce
and white ash for butter tubs. and wlhitv
pine for brine and pickle packages.
Hoops for slack barrels are of three
kinds-"patent" hoops, made by cutting up
sawed boards of elm; "racked" hoops,
made by splitting black ash: and "half-
round" hoops, made by dividing young
saplings of such tenacious woods as hick-
orq, birch, or beech. The fancy for split
saplings. which still prevails, is believed
to be largely due to prejudice. The at-
tempt to substitute wire hoops for wooden
ones on slack barrels has been successful
thus far only as regards the "bilge" or
central hoop: the end hoops need to be of
wood in order to protect the thin ends
of the staves.
Barrel headings, as well as staves and
hoops, have their peculiar requirements.
A good heading must be light, must re-
tain a tight joint, must be sound, smooth,
without warp. bright looking and thor-
oughly dry. Basswood is one of the spe-
cies preferred for this use.
Among the special problems which con-
front slack-cooperage manufacture is that
of the best means of drying the wood for
each specific purpose. Kiln drying. though
widely used, has not been entirely suc-
cessful. and the same is true of air drying
and of piling methods. The warping of
wood in drying, and, still more, mold,
cause much difficulty and stand in need
of exact investigation. Another problem
is the more accurate determination of the
pliability and strength of different woods.
What is needed is not to multiply the
available woods for products of the infe-
rior grades, since these are not profitable,
but rather to discover new material for
the better ones, or, at least, if this be
impossible, to develop the use of the pres-
ent leading woods to the point of the
highest efficiency and economy.
It is the design of the Forest Service to
prepare a publication dealing with the
conditions and problems of cooperage man-
ufacture. This publication will discuss the
woods used for the different branches of
the industry in the States visited and the
properties of wood required for the differ-
ent. slack-cooperage products, and will pre-
sent statistics of the number of staves and
hoops and sets of heading turned out in
1905, by grades, species and States.

BIG SALE OF SUBURBAN LOTS.
Jacksonville Development Company Breaks
The Jacksonville Development Company
is bringing to a close this week perhaps
the most phenomenal sale in suburban real
estate ever known in the Southern States.
On the 15th of February, less than six
weeks ago, it offered its Grand Park sub-
division to the public at the low price of
$50 for lots 50x100 feet, on the easy pay-
ment basis of $3 cash and $1 a month
without interest and taxes until paid for.
The company expected a rush as the lots
were regarded from the first as an unusual-
ly good investment. In this it was not
disappoitned, as when the doors of the De-
velopment Company's offices opened on the
morning of the 15th there was a crowd of
people on the secen to make early pur-
chases. Over three hundred lots were sold
the opening day. The second day the sale
kept up well, but, of course, with less rush.
The Development Company put its large
agency force at work on the proposition
and the results have been most gratifying,
illustrating, indeed, the faith the general
public holds in Jacksonville and her pros-
pects for the future. The Grand Park sale
has covered a wide range of territory, and
investments have been made from one end
of the country to the other.
Breaks all Records.
The company announced a general ad-'
vance in the price of Grand Park lots to
take effect at the close of business last
night and as a result yesterday broke all
records, mail and telegraph orders being
received by the company during the office
hours yesterday for over four hundred lots,
practically closing out the lots in this
suburb. There are probably not over one
hundred lots left and they are likely to
be gone by tonight, or certainly by the
end of this week.
The Jacksonville Development Company
early began the work of development at
Grand Park, opening streets, planting
shade trees, etc., and though the sub-divis-
ion is practically sold out this work will
continue right along at the Development
Company's expense. The company, which
is one of the largest real estate and invest-
ment corporations in the South, is ener-
getically behind Grand Park, and it is safe
to predict will make of it a most attractive
and a most desirable locality.
Location is Favorable.
This suburb is located perhaps more fa-
vorably than any lands around Jackson-
ville for factory sites, it having unusually
excellent transportation facilities. It is

plated will not perhaps be established, it
is reasonably sure that Grand Park will in
the future be the factory suburb of Jack-
sonville. It has every advantage as such,
and the Development Company will give
every encouragement to parties interested
in establishing industries. In addition to
this the Development Company will loan
the purchasers of lots to build and in every
other way aid and encourage the building
up of this suburb.
The management of the Jacksonville De-
velopment Company deserves the greatest
praise for the magnificent success of its
Grand Park sale. They demonstrated an
enterprise that was bound to win and they
have been most liberal in the use of print-
ers ink, the greatest factor of the age in
successful business. They offered a good
proposition, invited the closest possible in-
vestigation of it, advertised with a vim
that would drive any proposition and at
the same time with a frank conservatism
that immediately impressed the people
with the sincerity of theoffer. Not only did
the Development Company use the local
papers, but it instituted a cash advertising
campaign with the leading Florida week-
lies, and the successful weekly newspaper
is a power when it begins to work.
There were sixteen hundred lots offered
in Grand Park. Over fourteen hundred of
them were sold when the office of the De-
velopment Company closed last night, a
record that, perhaps, surpasses anything
of the kind ever seen before in this sec-

the expense of such proceedings is high,

can better afford to pay the tax imposed

himself against the determination of Gov-

LEAVES FOR ALABAMA.
J. M. DesRoches Leaves Florida to Work
in Other Fields.
The Weekly Industrial Record regrets
to chronicle the departure from Jackson-
ville and Florida of J. M. DesRoches, per-
haps the best known and most efficient
* sawmill and lumberman in the State. Mr.
DesRoches, who has been prominently con-
nected with the lumber industry in Flor-
ida for the past twenty years has accepted
a position which calls him to Dothan, Ala.,
for a time at least.
There is not a more efficient nor better
equipped sawmill man in the entire yel-
low pine belt than Mr. DesRoches. He has
acquired a knowledge from his connection
with every branch of the industry. He
has been a valued superintendent of some
of the biggest sawmills of the State, a
buyer for the largest firms of the coun-
try, a broker, and in fact has had dealings
along all lines, including stumpage. Those
who have engaged his services in Alabama
have secured a good man and one who
has been of great value to the industry
in Florida. Aside from trade there are
other qualities possessed by Mr. Des-
Roches which will be of great value to him
in his new field. As a social member, Mr.
Deslloches has long been regarded as a
prince. Kind and considerate, sincere and
loyal to his friends, he has been noted
as one of the very best fellows in the
State where he has resided for so many
years. It is to be hoped that conditions
will so shape themselves as to send Mr.
DesRoches back to the State of his choice.
PHOSPHATE LAND DEAL.
H. G. Stone Made Some Nice Sales in Polk
Mr. H. G. Stone, general manager of the
Florida Realty Company, returned Satur-
day from a trip to South Florida, where
he put through several important land
deals. One tract of phosphate land, con-
taining 200 acres, about ten miles south-
west of Bartow, was sold to Mr. H. L.
Pierce, of Savannah. Mr. Pierce also pur-
chased an orange grove of 120 acres for
$10,000, in the same locality.
While in Polk County Mr. Stone also
disposed of one tract of 330 acres of phos-
phate land to one of the largest fertilizer
manufacturing companies in the United
States. He has several other important
deals now in prospect.

DEATH OF MRS. W. C. POWELL.
The Industrial Record deeply sympa-
thizes with Mr. W. C. Powell, president of
the Consolidated Naval Stores Company,
in the death of his wife. Mrs. Powell was
a most estimable lady, a devout Chris-
tian, a leader in benevolent and charity
work, and exceedingly popular with her
large circle of friends. Mrs. Powell died
at St. Luke's Hospital in Jacksonville last
Saturday evening after a brief illness.
Her death came as a great shock, as few
knew even of her illness. Mrs. Powell was
a member of the First Baptist Church of
Jacksonville and her pastor, Dr. Hobson,
accompanied the body and the members of
the bereaved family to Wake Forest, N.
C., her old home, where the interment was
ENFORCE THE LAW.
Our advices from three counties in this
State indicate that the naval stores opera-
tors are suffering because of the laxity
of officials in enforcing the law against
those who set fire to the woods.
The losses in some instances have been
heavy and there is cause for the indigna-
tion of some of the operators, who see the
laws against petty larceny, toting weap-
ons, etc., enforced vigorously in their
camps, while people mya with impunity
set fire too the woods and do untold dam-
age. The Record endorses the statement
of one operator to the effect that the au-
thorities are giving the turpentine inter-
ests the worst end of the deal, and this
in the face of the heavy license and other
taxes which the operators pay to their
county and State. The naval stores in-
dustry is eminently entitled to the protec-
tion which it seeks. The officials ought
to be called to account when they fail to
do their duty and give the protection which
the laws of Florida guarantee.
Railroads Seeking the Gulf for an Outlet,
(From Manufacturers' Record.)
*'On to the Gulf!" would seem to be the
slogan in many railroad enterprises in the
South today. Since the United States gave
assurance that a Panama canal would be
constructed the owners of our existing
lines which reach ports on the Gulf of Mex-
ico have been stimulated to double their
facilities, and the projectors of new rail-
ways are now inspired to prepare their
plans also with a view toward handling
freight destined for a marine route via the
The most notable of these new projec-
tions is the extension of the Florida East
Coast Railway to Key West, now conspicu-
ous chiefly because of its daring engineer-
ing aln construction which challenge wind
and wave, although the future will proba-
bly find it more notable in facilities for
reaching Havana and the Isthmian canal.
The starting of this work, now well tnder
way, has been followed by divers announce-
ments of schemes to build other lines to
points on the Gulf, none, of course, so far
seaward as Key West, but each and every
one presenting inducements more or less
inviting to persuade railroad construction
thither. But there are also other transpor-
tation plans looking Gulfward and which
are not yet carried out that were conceived
and incorporated before the extension of
the Flagler line began. Thus the advan-
tages of the tidewater outlet for railroad
freights via the Gulf of Mexico were early
realized, and the number of new railroad
plans based upon that realization testifies
to its value, which will be greater than
ever on the completion of the canal.
One of the most recent projects for a
line of any magnitude to the Gulf is that
of the Augusta & Florida Railroad Co.,
which proposes to connect several existing
small railroads in Georgia by building links
between them and thus secure a very di-
rect and advantageous route to tide on the
Gulf. Still others are those of the Birm-
ingham. Columbus & St. Andrews Bay
Railway and of the Atlanta & Gulf Rail-
road. both of which are building lines, one
to connect the great iron center of Alaba-
ma with the coast and the other to give
the capital of Georgia a similar connection.
At Pensacola, Fla., there are two or three
projects, one for making ac connection from
the Central of Georgia and another for
building a line from Memphis. In Alabama
there are still other plans conceived for
building from Birmingham to the Gulf, and
in Mississippi several companies have in
view southern outlets to the sea. One of
the progressive companies in the latter
State is the Gulf & Ship Island Railroad,
which already has facilities at Gulfport of
no small capacity and which is extending
its railroad lines. The Mobile, Jackson &
Kansas City Railroad, which has lately
completed its road northward to Middle-
ton, Tenn., is also governed by an enter-
prising spirit, and may be expected to
build other extensions. Its port, as indi-
cated by the name of the company, is Mo-
bile. The Mississippi Central is also ex-
tending. In louisiana the line of the
Louisiana Railway & Navigation Com-
pany is fast approaching New Orleans, and
upon its completion another railroad there
will have attained a Gulf outlet. The Kan-
sas City Southern is also said to be reach-
ing out quietly to enter the same city, and
the construction of a new line, which is
recognized as a branch for that company,
is already under way. The New Orleans
Great Northern is another important pro-
ject. Moreover, the Colorado Southern,
New Orleans & Pacific Railway, now build-
ing between De Quincy. La., and Baton
Rouge, is authorized to build a branch di-
rectly southwards to a point on the Louisi-
ana Gulf coast. Other companies in Ar-
kansas as well as in Louisiana which pro-
pose to build lines likweise aspire to reach
tidewater through the latter State. In
Texas it is Port Arthur and Galveston
which the new roads mostly endeavor to
reach. In fact, the St. Louis, Brownsville
& Mexico Railway, or Gulf Coast Route,
has just completed its extension to Galves-
ton, and there are numerous projects incor-
porated which aim to reach tide at some
point or other, one of which has in contem-
plation. according to recent announce-
ments, a line from Winnipeg, Manitoba, to
the Texas coast.
It goes without saying that not a few
of the many incorporation which have
been made will never carry out in their en-
tirety all the plans declared in their char-
ters, but sufficient will be fulfilled to large-
ly increase railroad transportation facili-
ties between the interior of the country
and the Gulf ports, the business of which
has increased so wonderfully within the
last ten years and which continues to grow
with surprising rapidity.
Southeastern Stockgrowers Meet in Third
The Southeastern Stock Growers' Asso-
ciation convened at the court house in Kis-
simmee Wednesday, and while the number
of delegates was not as large as was hoped
for, yet the interest taken by those who
were in attendance shows that great good
is coming out of the efforts of the asso-
It was 10:30 a. m., when the president
called the meeting to order and owing to
the unavoidable absence of Senator Car-
son, Prof. W. B. Hinter'dal the pleasure of
welcoming the delegates to the city, to
which Captain Rose responded.
Capt. Rose also read a paper prepared
by Dr. C. F. Dawson, "What the Florida
Agricultural College is Doing for the Stock
Grower." President Gaitskill then made
his address, after which the convention ad-
journed till after dinner.
At 2:30 p. m.. the convention was called
to order and a paper prepared by Weather
Bureau Director Mitchell on "How Cli-
MAY MEAN ABANDONMENT.
Advices from Tallahassee received this
week indicate that Governor Broward and
his Board of Drainage Commissioners may
not continue their efforts to collect the
drainage tax in view of the recent decis-
ion of Judge Locke in granting injunctions
against the collection of this tax to parties
who reside in this State.
This last decision practically stops all
matic Conditions Affect the Stock Grow-
er," was read.
F. P. Conroy of Jacksonville, then made
an address on "The Packer and Stock
Grower," and was followed by Gov. N. B.
Broward on "Comparative Returns per
Acre from Crops Produced in Florida and
other States, Relative to Expense."
A general exchange of opinions as to
range conditions and observations of the
effect of good blood on the range was in-
dulged in by a number of delegates, led
by the Secretary pro tem, W. A. Lightsey,
H. J. Moody, J. M. Lee, J. F. Obery. R.
Donegan and Vice-President Murphy.
Z. C. Chambliss, of Ocala, then read a
paper on "Lessons and Conclusions from a
Visit to the Last International Stock Show
in Chicago," and was followed by Wm.
Edwards, of Plymouth, on a "Good Hog."
This ended the regular program. Mr.
Conroy proposed that the old officers he
unanimously re-elected and it was so or-
operations so far as the raising of funds
are concerned. Governor Broward is prac-
tically powerless, but is pushing the cam-
paign vigorously along other lines. A de-
termined effort is to be made to secure a
legislature which may be depended upon to
push the work.
While we grant the fact that the Gov-
ernor can do a great deal in the way of in-
fluencing legislation, we doubt if he can
succeed in pushing this work further. In
he light of subsequent events and decis-
ons of the court, mature study and ex-
ended discussion of the questions involved
n this scheme, tlhe people of the State see
he folly of the plan to attempt to drain
he great Florida swamp.
It really looks as though the scheme
rill have to he abandoned.
k HEAVY ADVANCE IN BUSINESS RE-
PORTED BY MEMBERS.
t Is Enough to Keep the Mills Busy for
the Next Sixty Days-Car Shortage Re-
ported to Be Still Bad by the Delegates
The Georgia Interstate Sawmill Asso-
iation met yesterday afternoon and last
night at Valdosta, Ga., with the largest
attendance that the association has had in
nany months. The members reported the
business already booked was sufficient to
*arry them thirty to ninty days, which
would average at least sixty days if the
nills do not take another order in that
The demand was shown to be urgent,
and starting at an advance of $2 to $5
above the list prices. The price committee,
however, notwithstanding this condition of
affairs. recommended that the prices be
not advanced, but that the present list be
reaffirmed on coastwise and interior trade.
This action took the form of a motion, and
was unanimously adopted by a rising vote.
The president was instructed to ap-
point delegates from this association to the
annual meeting of the National Lumber
Manufacturers' Association, at St. Louis,
MIay 8th and 9th.
The car shortage was reported as bad
as ever. The export trade on the coast
is improving very perceptibly. The ear
standard question is in the hands of attor-
neys, and is being pushed.
Florida rates and demurrage were
touched upon, but nothing was done. Presi-
dent Tift was not present, and Vice Presi-
dent I. B. Conrad, of Florida, presided.
The Hoo Hoos had a great parade last
night, after which they had a concatna-
tion and banquet. There were twenty-five
captive kittens led through the streets in
chains, and all were put through the mys-
teries of the order afterwards.
ON NAVAL STORES.
With the introduction of imported labor
into Florida, C. W. Chase, the big naval
stores operator of Gainesville, Fla., who
owns several large enterprises of this kind
in Alachua county and other sections,
hopes to solve the labor problem as far as
the naval stores business is concerned.
Mr. Chase says that while the naval
stores interests have been one of the lead-
ing industries in Florida for the past few
years, the operators have experienced con-
siderable difficulty in securing help. Not-
withstanding that good wages have been
paid, and the employee was almost the mas-
ter of the men who gave him work, the ne-
gro, realizing his importance in the making
of turpentine, has been disposed to do al-
most as he pleased, with the result that
he exercised his own ideas as to when and
where he should work. This condition of
affairs made him independent, and as a
rule he has given the operator no end of
trouble and inconvenience, at quite a finan-
Mr. Chase says that while he was willing
to submit to some consideration of the
negro, went about the matter to secure
more reliable help. He has imported from
Portland. Oregon. about sixty Chinamen.
Mr. Chase's agent or representative ex-
plained to the Chinamen that nature of the
work. and induced them to come. A priv-
ate Pullman car was secured. and in this
the party left Portland in first-class con-
dition, and after nine days' travel arrived
safely at Paradise Saturday night. They
appeared well pleased, and have gone to
work with a willingness. It is the purpose
of the management to work the men in the
woods, as well as in all other places inci-
dent to the manufacture of turpentine, and
it is believed they will make good, compe-
tent. and faithful employes.
This group comprises some very intelli-
gent people. who speak English fluently,
and are strictly Americanized. A few of
them were in the city Monday, making
purchases, and made quite a favorable im-
pression on those whom they met.

SEA ISLAND GINS SOLD.
Dutton & Co. Sell Their Entire Ginning
Plant to W. H. Rivers.
An important deal was made at Gaines-
ville last week which carries with it the
purchase of the big ginning establishment
of H. F. Dutton & Co., of this city, by
W. H. Rivers, a cotton buyer and ginner
This transaction will probably come in
the nature of a surprise to many, as the
firm of Dutton & Co., cotton department,
has been established for more than a third
of a century, and has always enjoyed the
reputation of being the largest buyers and
ginners in Florida of Sea Island cotton.
The bill of sale covers twenty gins, to-
gether with the building, etc., and all other
property connected with the establishment
which is located at the junction of the
Seaboard Air Line and Atlantic Coast Line
Railroad. Consideration not learned.
In speaking of the matter Saturday
Hon. W. G. Robinson, for years manager
of the cotton department of Dutton &
Co., and one of the best posted men on
Sea Island cotton in the South, stated that
it was the purpose of his firm to retire
from the ginning business only.
It is not learned just what action the
new owner of this industry, Mr. Rivers,
will take, but inasmuch as Gainesville is
a large cotton center, it is natural to sup-
pose that he will continue the same here.
The plant employs a large number of
hands, principally women and children,
during the season.

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 17
An important industrial undertaking has
recently been launched at Nashville, Tenn.,
by the temporary organization of the In-
terstate Phosphate Co., whose purpose it
is to establish a large fertilizer plant for
the manufacture of acid phosphate and
fertilizers of all kinds. The present capital
of the company is $30,000, to be largely in-
creased upon complete organization, which
will probably be effected within a few
weeks, when application will be made for
a charter of incorporation. Options have
been secured on two sites, one of which
will be purchased for the location of the
plant and its erection begun when this
detail has been determined. A frame build-
ing 100x180 feet will be constructed and
equipped to have ann annual capacity of
from 25,000 to 30,000 tons. Plans for the
building are already in the hands of the
contractor. Officers of the company have
been elected as follows: Albert Strick-
land of Cartersville, Ga., president; T. W.
Pratt, of Huntsville, Ala., vice-president,
and William D. Rhea, of Nashville, secre-
tary and treasurer and general manager.
Messrs. Rhea and Pratt will form the ex-
ecutive committee. There is also a board
of directors having seven members from
Retail Lumber Dealers.
The Mississippi-Louisiana Retail Lum-
ber Dealers' Association met at Jackson,
Miss., on Tuesday of last week in a two-
day session, the occasion being its regular
semi-annual convention. Several matters
of more or less interest were considered,
among them the advance in prices, which
has recently been ordered by wholesale
dealers and manufacturers. President B.
A. Tucker of Senatobia. Miss., and Secre-
tary W. G. Harlow of Yazoo City were
both in attendance.
Though Florida is largely underlain by
beds of limestone of Tertiary and recent
age, these are covered over great areas by
later deposits of sand and gravel. Owing
partly to this, and more largely to the
lack of local fuel deposits and cement mar-
kets, no attempt has ever been made to
manufacture Portland cement in the State.
Should commercial conditions ever change
so as to render a local cement industry
possible there will probably be little diffi-
culty in locating deposits ot limestone suit-
able for use as Portland cemene material,
for the St. Stephens limestone, which is
so promising a source of cement material
in Alabama, covers a large area in North-
ern Florida. while other limestones of equal
value as cement materials outcrop else-
where in the State.
FLAGLER HAS A CANNERY.
He Will Run the Factory at Delray, Fla,
as His Personal Property.
The best news that has ever reached
Delray, Fla.. pertaining to the interest of
the people and general welfare of the town
is the announcement that Mr. H. M. Flag-
ler has decided to take charge of the can-
ning factory there and run it as his per-
sonal property for a term of five years.
This means five years of success and pros-
perity for the farmers and people of Del-
ray and Dade county.
It is stated that the factory is to be
considerably enlarged at once, so that it
can take care of the present crops of pine-
apples and tomatoes.
It is reported also that the company has
already received orders for 8,000 crates of
canned pineapples from the coming crop.
This is more than the entire output of the
factory lant season.
Are Best by Every Test
Cypress withstands the effects of heat and moisture
Better than any other wood, shrinks and swells less
than other woods, is impervious to acids, bo:ds paint
well and lasts for ages without decaying. Located
as we are, right in the great cypress forests, we are
able to secure the best selection of the wood and at
very low prices. We have been building tanks for
more than a quarter of a century and bo dly assert
that no tanks are better built or will last longer.
