I11 A Tip to Advertisers.
THE INDUSTBIA RECORD reaches nearly every
operator and factor in the naval stores belt. Those
who are interested in this industry constitute a class
who are heavy buyers in all of the branches of trade.
The fact that the RECORD reaches all of this class
makes it the very best advertising medium of its kind
in the South today. Those who are seeking the trade
0 1 and patronage of the naval stores operator, the naval
stores factor and the others interested in this great in-
~ ddustry, will find it to their advantage to use the col-
umas of THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.

NGIMn Si MAKING PRIPARATIO
FOR WORKING DREDGS.
Though the United States engineers h
have as yet received no word from 1
department regarding the amount app
printed under the sundry civil bill
continuing the St. Johns river project, p
limiary preparations are being made
putting the government dredges to w4
when the meaey does arrive.
The captains of the two governmi
dredges, St. Johns and Jacksonville, hi
been preparing estimates of the repay
furnishings, stores, men, etc., that will
necessary for fully fitting the dredges
resuming work. These estimates will
given to Major Shunk and will be rea
for reference when he prepares his gene
estimates as to how the $300,750 app
* priated shall be expended.
Even should the money be put at t
diapesal of the engineers here today, t
dredges would ot be ready to go
work before the first of next month, if ev
It is estimated that it will require I
remaialer of this month, at least, to co
pete the work that is being done on I
St. Johns. The new pump authorized i
the Jackwnville has not yet been shipp
though the engineers here are daily 4
peeting notice of shipment. The instal
tioM of the pump will require some lit
time, and this must be done before t

dy Harrisburg, July 13.-The men in the
ral collieries of the Central Pennsylvania bi-
ro- tuminous coal district, numbering nearly
forty thousand, who have been idle since
he April 1, when the mines closed down be-
to cause the operators would not restore the
en scale of 1903, will resume work on prac-
tically the same scale as in 1905. Teh
he agreement to do this was made today in
m- a conference that was attended by prom-
fr inent operators, President John Mitchell
ed, and Secretary Wilson, of the United Mine
mx- Workers of America, and representatives
Ia- of the districts of the affected territory.
ie The agreement is regarded as a compro-
rk mise, the miners getting the wage advance
rk and the operators the open shop, arbitra-
tion and check weighman points.
Since the sundry civil bill appropriated
$309,750, the total balance due, for com-
pleting the project looking to securing a
channel twenty-four feet deep at mean low
mater, from the city to the sea, inquiries
have been many from the general public
regarding the disbursement of the money,
whether or not the government dredges
will be put to work again, etc.
No official notice has as yet been re-
ceived by the local office of the appropri-
ation of this money, nor notice that it is
available for use in this district for the
purpose for which it was set aside. Until
such notice is received, the Jacksonville
office can do nothing.
When the official notice is received, how-
ever, Maor Shunk will at once prepare an
estimate as to how, in his opinion, the
money can be best expended. This esti-
mate will be forwarded to the chief of
engineers at Washington. If approved by
him, work along the lines proposed in the
estimate can begin at once.
More than half of this money is practi-
cally already disposed of, as it must be
used in meeting the payments on the con-
tracts awarded to the North American
Dredging Company for work at Dames
Point shoals, and to Capt .R. G. Ross for
the dredging at Trout Creek shoals.
These two contracts, together, call for
about $175,000 in round numbers. This
leaves practically $134,000 for other uses,
and it is practically certain that some of
it, at least, will be used for meeting the
expenses of again putting the United
States dredges Jacksonville and St. Johns
As far as possible the estimate on how
thle monep appropriated shall be expended
is being prepared now, in order that when
the official notice, that the money is avail-
able, finally does reach hthe local office,
there may be no unnecessary delays. The
fact that the captains of the two dredges,
now lying at the foot of Market street,
have been ordered to prepare estimates of
the cost of fully equipping their boats with
stores, etc., the number of men needed, and
all other details connected with resuming
work, makes it practically certain that
both will be put to work again in the near
Even should the money become avail-
able today, the two dredges would not be
ready to resume work before several weeks
had elap-ed, as repairs that are now being
made cannot be completed in that length
The Jacksonville, which has been equip-
lwd with a new and powerful engine, has
yet to be equipped with the new pump
authorized by the department. The pump
has not yet been shipped from the manu-
facturers in the North, and when it does
arrive some little time will be required in
installing it. But once fully equipped with
the new machinery the Jacksonville, which
has done some excellent work in the
river here, especially at Trout creek
shoals, will be one of the best dredges in
the government service.
Repairs to the St. Johns, though not
as extensive as those to the Jackson-
ville, are still of a nature that will re-
quire some little time yet for completion.
With the money available the govern-
ment dredges at work, and the various
contractors at work with their private
dredges, the twenty-four foot channel
from the city to the sea should be secured
in about nine months after work finally
gets under full swing again. This was
the length of time estimated for complet-
ing the work in an official report made
to the board of trade some months ago.
And, considering the progress that has
already been made, the estimate seems
a reasonable one. The two government
dredges, both of which have shown their
merit heretofore, are now better equipped
(or will be) than ever, and should do
yeoman service The dredge Atlantic, the
dredge which has made for itself the name
of accomplishing what it has to do in
record time, will be at work here, and in
addition Capt. Ross' dredge or dredges
will be busy at Trout creek shoals.
This force is considered entirely suffic-
ient by those in a position to make accu-
rate estimates, to complete the twenty-
four-foot channel in nine months, and
Jacksonville will then have a channel that
will inestimably aid the rapidly growing
commerce of this port.
When it is remembered that Jackson-
ville now has twenty-nine feet of water,
at mean low water, over the bar at the
mouth of the St. Johns river; that money
has been appropriated to provide a chan-
nel twenty-four feet deep at mean low
water from the city to the sea; that this
will in all probability be secured within
nine or ten months, barring accident; a
comparison with the harbor at Savannah,
which has been so greatly vaunted by the
Savannah papers recently, is of interest,
The following, from the report of Col.
Kingman, United States engineer, in
charge of the Savannah district, is taken
from the Savannah Morning News of yes-
"The Savannah harbor now has a nav-
igable channel throughout the inner har-
bor with a controlling depth of twenty-
two feet at mean low water, and chan-
nels across Tybee Knoll and the outer
bar, with a controlling depth of twenty-
one feet. Work on the knoll and the outer
bar is still progressing."

State mean? Harder times or prosperity?

two in West Florida and another will soon

4 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
The congestion of freight cars in the
local railroad yards is still serious, and
although the representatives of the vari-
ous roads anticipated an improvement by
the end of this week, the congestion is
stidl as serious as it was during the first
part of the week.
During the first part of the week the con-
gestion was principally that of lumber
cars which were tied up awaiting the arri-
val of vessels. This soon caused a conges-
tion of other classes of freight, which is
-now tied up in all of the yards.
The railroads are working a double force
of men and yard engines, day and night,
doing all they can to relieve the situation,
but it is a hard proposition.
Road Material Delayed.
On account of this congestion twenty-
nine carloads of Georgia chert, consigned
to the county commissioners, is tied up in
the yards and is greatly delaying the work
of road building in the county.
The railroads have promised to get the
chert to the point desired for several days.
but thus far have been unable to do so.
Merchants, who have goods tied up, are
kicking and the railroad men are confront-
ed with a serious proposition.
The Norwegian steamship Parran, now
in port. is taking on a large cargo of
crossties from Baxter & Co. for Havana,
Cuba, which is relieving the lumber situa-
tion to a certain extent.
Many Schooners Loading.
Baxter & Co., as well as other lumber
dealers, are getting out the lumber as fast
as possible and the river front presents a
busy scene, with vessels lying at almost
every pier taking on lumber cargoes.
Two schooners cleared yesterday for
Portland with 750,000 feet of lumber. This,
of course, relieves the situation somewhat,
but railroad men declare that the lumber
is coming in faster than the shippers can
get it loaded on the vessels now in port.
Big Steamer Chartered.
Realizing the seriousness of this conges-
tion. and desiring to get their lumber and
erossties out as fast as possible, Baxter
& Co. have chartered another foreign
steamship, which is expected to arrive in
port Monday morning from New York.
The railroad representatives have been
notifide of this charter and are delighted
over the prospects of a great relief in the
It is understood that the steamer char-
tered will be capable of taking out about
30,000 crossties, and the work of loading
her will be commenced as soon as she ar-
rives and is moored at the pier.
The amount of lumber now on hand on
the cars and on various piers is prac-
tically the same as was on hand last week,
36.000,000 feet, enough to load vessels here
for at least forty-five days without the
receipt of any more lumber.
The Hurricane Season.
Owners of schooners, it is said, are hold-
ing hack their vessels from southern wa-
aters now, as the hurricane season is rap-
idly approaching, and as most of the ves-
sels are not insured, the owners are afraid
to run the rick of taking charters from
A well informed railroad man was seen
yesterday in regard to the congestion and
"The situation is practically unchanged
from that of the first of the week. We
are doing all-in our power to relieve the
situation and to prevent a complete block
of traffic. As was stated last week, we
have placed extra yard engines in com-
mission and have employed more men and
are working day and night.
"Lumber is coming in on us faster than
shippers can ship it out on vessels, and
unless something is done at an early date,
the situation will become more serious.
Baxter & Co. have chartered another
steamer, which is expected Monday. This
ship will take out a large cargo of cross-
ties, thus relieving the situation to a great
"We are doing all in our power to re-
lieve the situation and we believe the mer-
chants appreciate that fact."
SUPERVISING INSPECTOR SEIZED
BARRELS OF TURPENTINE.
J. R. Parker, of this citl, supervising
inspector of naval stores, who was appoint-
ed by Governor Broward under the pro-
visions of the pure spirits of turpentine W.
act, passed by the legislature, yesterday
condemned and seized twenty-one barrels
of adulterated spirits of turpentine. I
The adulterated spirits were found in the
yards of the National Transportation and
Terminal Company, and were consigned to
the Jacksonville Naval Stores Company.
They had been shipped here from an inte-
rior point and the matter is being inves-
tigated. The company to whom they were
consigned is not held responsible, as the S
goods are not inspected until after their
arrival from the producer.
Under the provisions of the law the na- re
val stores inspector reports the seizure to
the state attorney of the judicial circuit in
which the adulterated spirits are found and
the state attorney will institute proceed-
ings to have the adulterdated spirits for-
feited and ordered sold.
The inspection of turpentine is for the
benefit of the turpentine operators as well
as the Healers and exporters. A penalty of
not exceeding $5,000 fine is provided for the
adulteration of spirits of turpentine and
for it is comparatively easy to tell where
each barrel of spirits comes from.
The principal adulterant used by the
operators who wish to make money quick
out of their supply of spirits is kerosene
oil. The oil costs about 12 or 13 cents a
gallon and just now spirits of turpentine is
selling at 57 to 58 cents per gallon. But
the oil and the spirits will not mix so that
they cannot, be detected. The hydrometer
test gives the specific gravity of the con-
tents of the barrel and if it is below what
it should be, then a further test is made.
To the credit of the turpentine operators
it can be said that comparatively few seiz-
ures have ever been made of adulterated
spirits in this State.

MAYO DOARD OF TRIAD.
On Organised to Work for Towa's Ad-
Mayo, July 20.-Another move for the
advancement and upbuilding of the town
of Mayo was made when a board of trade
was permanently organized. A meeting of
t.e representative citizens of the town was
held on July 10, for the purpose of dis-
cussing the question, at which time a tem-
porary organization was effected, and this
week, with the addition of nearly every
besines man in town, the temporary or-
ganition was made permanent, and a
constitution and by-laws adopted, oMfers
elected and other business attended to.
The offers are: Fred W. Butler, presi-
dent; W. T. Dens, vice-president; J. M.
Gornto, secretary; J. B. Horne, treasurer,
and these officers and W. T. Clark, J. T.
Hendry and lamar G. C iter as directors.
The officers and members of this organi-
sation have entered into the matter with
enthusiasm and with a determination to
"do something"; there is no doubt but that
much can and will be accomplished by the
organized efforts of the men composing
It is persistently rumored here, and from
apparently good authority that the rail-
road recently purchased by John Skelton
Williams and associates, and which it was
thought would go by Perry, in Taylor
county, and across the southern part of
this county, will now come by this place,
and that a force of surveyors are now on
their way, running the survey so as to
strike this place, and that it will go from
* here, southward along the Suwannee river
and across that river at or above Old Town
and continue to Tampa, which is the pro-
posed terminus, should this rumor be
true, it will place Mayo on a trunk line,
and the benefits to the town will be in-
The building of dwelling houses goes
merrily on here; every carpenter in the
place is kept busy,.and several jobs are on
hand all the time, and still the demand for
houses to rent cannot be supplied. The
values of real estate have risen within
the past six months about one-fourth, and
possibly more, while there are a number
of people who will not sell at all, even
though they are offered' a fancy price.
TO REACH MEW MILL.
The St. Johns River Terminal Company
is now constructing a spur track, com-
mencing from the old Talleyrand round
house and running through the company's
property to the property recently acquired
by Dean & Toomer from Courtland Buck-
man, which lies along the river front for
a distance of 1,000 feet.
This spur track crosses Talleyrand ave-
nue at a point just south of the Edwards
Half Way House and thence directly to
tne river banks. On this river front prop-
erty the Dean & Toomer Company is bulk-
heading the river and erecting long piers
and saw mills.
This railroad will be some 6,300 feet in
length and is now graded and the ties laid
ready for completion as soon as the rails
arrive, which have already been shipped.
This piece of track goes through a most
excellent territory and one especially
adapted for manufacturing enterprises of
all kinds, as it is convenient to both rail
and water traffic Land is now in great
demand in that section of the county and
one or more large manufacturing enter-
prises have already secured figures on land
and may establish plants in that section in
the near future.
The Dean & Toomer Company are erect-
ing one of the largest sawmill plants in
the county on the river front and they
intend to load lumber vessels at their
dock for both coastwise and foreign ports.
All along the river front from the Flor-
ida Ontrich farm to Panama can be seen
many large milling and manufacturing en-
terprises, all doing magnificent businesses.
No better site could be secured for manu-
facturing concerns than in this section of
the city, as the railroad facilities are the
best that can be obtained and many great
improvements are now being made in that
section by the Seaboard, Atlantic Coast
Line and the St. Johns River Terminal
LABOR TROUBLE AT SAWMILL.
Whites and Blacks Were in Line for
Trouble Over Pay Check.
Moultrie, Ga., July 19.-A clash between
the whites and blacks at the Sumner &
Pounds sawmill, near Moultrie, was nar-
rowly averted yesterday. The first dis-
order was the demand of a negro laborer
named Gus Bush made on Supt. Robinson
for a time check which had been denied
him under the rules of the company for
losing a day without giving notice in ad-
Bush was heavily armed and was ac-
companied by a dozen other negroes, most
of whom were armed, and the superintend-
ent was forced to give over the check.
When it was delivered to Bush he waved it
over his head and all the negroes in the
crowd cheered him warmly. This incensed,
tne white laborers who had been forced to
observe the same rule, and they went on
Feeling between the whites and col-
ored laborers was very high for several
hours, and a number of the white men
sent into Moultrie for pistols and guins.
It is reported that the negroes continued
to arm themselves. Finally the white men
returned to work on the agreement of the
superintendent to discharge the negroes.
The sheriff was sent for in the meantime
and went out with his deputy and placed
Bush and another of the ringleaders of the
affair under arrest. The remainder of the
negroes have been notified that they will
be permitted to return to work if they
accept the conditions and rules over which
the trouble occurred. It developed that the
negroes had planned at a meeting last
night to overpower the superintendent and
take the time check .k
MUCH LUMBER HERE.
Upwards of 35,0oo00oo Feet of Yellow Pine
Although much publicity has been given
to the congested condition of the freight
yards of the various railroad companies
in Jacksonville, the average person has
no idea of the vast amount of cars that
e now tied up.
SIn discussing the matter yesterday a well
,.sted railroad man said that 35,000,000
feet of yellow pine lumber was now tied
up in Jacksonville on various piers and
on cars awaiting shippers to load it on
Besides the great quantity of lumber
on the piers there are 978 freight cars
laden with lumber and tied up in the local
freight yards, and many ears are arriving
The railroads are handling the situation
to the best of their ability, but the con-
gestion is serious. In addition to the
many lumber cars tied up, there are sev-
eral other cars that cannot be handled
unti Ithe condition is bettered.
Basing the situation on the amount of
lumber shipped from Jacksonville during
tae month of June, there is enough lum-
ber in Jacksonville at present to load ves-
ses for forty-five days without receiving
All roads have increased their facilities
by additional tracks and are working
double the amount of yard engines than
were in service during the same period of
last year, and everything possible is being
done to prevent a complete block of traffic,
which will not only mean a tie up in the
lumber and tie business, but all other
classes of freight.
The 978 carloads of lumber which are
now tied up in the yards mean practically
ten miles of cars. This will give the pub-
lic in general an idea of the conditions in
the local yards which is now giving the
railroad officials so much worry.
In speaking of the congestion yesterday
a railroad man said:
"Although the conditions now are very
serious, all roads are working together
and with additional forces of men and yard
engines, we hope to better the situation
before the end of the week.
"The yard engines ar working day and
night in the yards. With the number of
schooners now in port the railroad men
feel encouraged, as a great quantity of the
lumber is being gotten out of the way
LIVERPOOL COTTON STATISTICS.

The people of Orlando are having a good
deal of trouble with the negro labor, both
men and women, of the city. There seems
to be some sort of concerted action on the
pat of the common laborers, the cooks
and the washerwomen, to refuse to work
unless larger and exorbitant prices are
tide. The cut through the Narrows, how-
ever, will render high water navigation
much easier than heretofore, though the
same will not be of general benefit in
shortening the distance between Savannah
and Fernandina until the channel is ex-
tended at either end and widened and deep-
ened as required by the project. At the
close of the fiscal year the project was
about thirty-five per cent completed."
The total amount expended in the Nar-
rows during the last fiscal year was $14,-
!43.81, of which $11,987.57 was for dredg-
ing under contract with Wayne Cunning-
ham at 14.5 cents per cubic yard, and $2,-

In the annual report of Col. Dan C.
Kingman, corps of engineers, U. S. army,
in charge of the Savannah district, the fol-
lowing is given concerning the inside wa-
terway between Savannah an dFernandi-
na, and will prove of special interest in
view of the fact that it is proposed to
open up and deepten the inside waterway
between Fernandin and Jacksonville:
"The report devotes a detailed state-
ment of the work at Skidaway Narrows,
an improvement in which all Savannah-
ians are interested The first contract,
which was awarded August 11, 1905, was
completed a few days ago. The cost of the
improvement as originally planned is es-
timated at $55,000, but the river and har-
bor act of March, 1906, carried only $20,-
000. With this sum available it was de-
cided to dredge a channel along the ap-
proved route with a width of sixty feet
and a depth of five feet at mean low wa-
ter, to be enlarged to seventy-five feet in
width when the remaining money is pro-
"Col. Kingman reports that 'owing to
the insufficiency of the amount appropri-
ated, it will not be possible to connect the
dredged cut with deep water in Burnside
and Skidaway rivers at either end. There-
fore, while there is a depth of five feet
at low water in the Narrows, the route can
only be navigated at high water, as before

the two rivers mentioned, near the ends

New Steamship Line Between Jackson-
ville, Havana and Nassau
Sufficient Number of Vessels Here to End
This Norwegian steamship Nicaragua,
Capt. H. Sorensen, of the new Nassau line,
arrived here Monday morning from New
Orieans and was moored at the Wilson
& Toomer docks, Talleyrand avenue, where
sue took on a partial cargo of fertilizer.
The arrival of this steamer inaugurated
the new Jacksonville-Nasdau steamship
line which is established by the Florida
Refiining Company, a new organization in
Thursday morning the Nicaragua moved
up the river from the Wilson & Toomer
docks to the Fitzgerald pier, foot of New-
nan street, where she completed her cargo,
taking on a quantity of general merchan-
aise. Her first outward bound cargo con-
sisted of about 900 tons of general mer-
chandise and fertilizer.
The Nassau line will make two sailings
a month from Jacksonville, leaving each
tri pfro mthe foot of Newnan street. This
new line is headed by John T. Cox as
general manager, W. P. Alford as auditor,
W. A. Jones, traffic manager, and A. C.
Common, general freight and passenger
agent. The executive board consists of
the following well known gentlemen: A.
M. Ives, J. N. C. Stockton, A .C. Common,
Fred W. King and Stockton Broome.
The office of the company is situated at
the foot of Dora street, Riverside, and the
receiving dock will be at the foot of New-
nan street. The Dora street dock will be
used for discharging the cocoanuts and
fruit brought in from Nassau and other
From Jacksonville the Nicaragua will
first touch at Nassau, where she will dis-
charge her miscellaneous cargo. She will
then go to Havana to discharge her ferti-
lizer cargo and from that port she will
proceed to Baracoa, where she will take
on a cargo of 00,000 cocoanuts, then pro-
ceed to Nassau, where she will load 100,-
At Nassau she will also load a miscel-
laneous cargo consisting of various kinds
of fruits, etc., and take on passengers for
Jacksonville, arriving in this port about
The Nassau Steamship Line offers ex-
ceedingly low passenger rates from Jack-
sonville to Nassau, Havana and Baracoa.
The rate to Nassau is $15 ;to Havana, $25,
and to Baracoa, $35.
The cargo of the Nicaragua on her first
trip will consist of 650 tons of fertilizer
for Havana; 60,000 shingles for Nassau;
5,000 crates for Havana, and 600 barrels
of miscellaneous cargo for Nassau. This
is- a magnificent cargo for the first trip
of a new line and it is encouraging to the
promoters of the line, who anticipate an
excellent business between Jacksonville and
the points mentioned.
Within a short while another steamer
will be secured for service on this line.
In fact one much larger vessel with a
greater passenger capacity is now in view
and may be chartered by the line in a

Merchants in Nassau are greatly inter-
ested in the new line for more than one
reason. They can visit the States at a
cheaper rate than was possible heretofore;
they can get freight cheaper and quicker
via the new line an they can secure mails
On the upward trip of the Nicaragua,
which will reach Jacksonville about Au-
gust 4, she will bring four or five Nassau
merchants who will visit the city to look
into the situation, and it is more than
likely that the merchants of Jacksonville
will derive great benefit by the establish-
ment of this line of steamers.
The Florida Refining Company is head-
e,. by John T. Cox as president and general
manager; A. F. Perry, vice-president, and
v. P .Alford, secretary and treasurer, with
the same board of directors as the new
new Nassau Steamship Line.
The office and plant of the Florida Re-
fining Company is situated at the foot
of Dora street, Riverside, and they are
daily making oils from the meat of the
cocoanuts. The curled cocoanut fibre, a
substitute for curled hair in stuffing mat-
tresses and cushion stock, is also being
manufactured by this company.
The fibre is vermin-proof on account of
the presence of tannic acid, contained
therein. The oil shortening fat, manu-
factured by this company, is a complete
substitute for butter and is used in mak-
ing pastry, bread and crackers.
The oil itself is made by a completely
new process under which the oil never be-
comes rancid. In the oil is not a drop of

JTHE GOVERNOR AND THE EVER-
In spite of the injunctions and orders of
the courts, Gov. Broward is digging a ditch
down in the Everglades with the new $40,-
000 dredge boat. Another boat, to cost
$40,000, will soon be ready for operation,
then the dirt and sand will fly, and so will
the State's money. After the Everglades
are drained however, the $80,000 worth of
dredge boats owned by the State can be
used as sailboats to sail the Everglades
during the rainy season.-Live Oak Demo-
The Herald strongly opposed the nomi-
nation of Governor Broward, and, since
his induction into office, has several times
severely criticised some of his official acts.
but it has always regarded him and still
regards him as a man of honor, notwith-
standing his severe and unjust denuncia-
tion of the newspapers that have criticized
him and opposed his schemes.-Punta
Gorda Herald .
The True Democrat still sticks to it that
the sale of internal improvement lands
at any amount under $1.25 per acre is an
injustice to the people of Florida, and that
the board in doing so deserve to be cen-
sured. Having, as claimed, "precedent"
and "authority to fix lands at any price
they please," may sound good to those
czars of Florida, but the people are doing
some' thinking just about now, and we
predict when they go to vote for men to
fill these offices next time they will do some
acting along a line that will make some
changes and correct some abuses.-Talla-
hassee True Democrat.
If the contention of the railroad officials
that the congestion of the Jacksonville
freight terminals of the various lines is
due to the failure of the consignees of
large shipments of lumber to promptly
secure vessels on which to load the lum-
ber, it now looks as though the conges-
tion complained of will soon be a thing of
According to the article published in the
Times-Union yesterday morning regarding
the number of vessels in port, there are
at present thirty-one vessels now in port
loading with cargoes of lumber or discharg-
ing incoming cargoes of. coal, etc., so that
they can begin loading lumber.
When these thirty-one vessels are loaded
there will no doubt be many more vessels
here, for quite a number of schooners are
under charter to load here with cargoes
of lumber for coastwise and foreign ports.
These vessels are in addition to the Clyde
line steamers, which are constantly taking
out from three to five cargoes each week.
Quite a number of the vessels now in
port will take on cargoes at the export
terminals of the Atlantic Coast Line, north
of the ostrich farm, along the banks of
the river. The wharves at these terminals
are so arranged that a dozen or more
vessels can be loaded at the same time.
If the lumber shippers will now secure
the laborers and push the work, night and
day, there is no reason why the congestion
will not be relieved very shortly.
The St. Johns River Terminal Company
has extensive wharves, where vessels are
loaded, at Talleyrand. The same company
also owns quite a large amount of river
frontage in the city and five and six ves-
sels are frequently seen at the wharf ex-
tending from Market to Yiberty streets.
The Seaboard Air Line has accommoda-
tions for loading several vessels at once
at the company's wharves in the rear
and to the southwest of the Clyde line's
Hogan street dock and warehouses.
"Ten there are several wharves and
docks owned by private parties or frms,
where lumber can be discharged from cars
and loaded on vessels. All of these
wharves and docks will be utilized to elear
up the congestion of lumber freights and
it is believed that within two weeks the
condition complained of will be entirely
Must Move Promptly. i
But to do this it will be necessary for I
the railroad companies to work so that I
the cargoes are placed to advantage. At a
present there is such a congestion that
it appears almost an impossibility for the
different roads to place the particular ars t
ordered by consignees where they ean
be loaded. It will be remembered that one
shipper stated at the hearing conducted 1
by Commissioner Burr, that he had been
four months trying to get some cars co- i
signed to him placed where he wanted
them, so that he could unload the cars
and place the lumber on lighters.
At the conference in Savannah last Fri- I
day Mr. James Menzies made the state-
ment that the Atlantic Coast Line had be-
tween 1,400 and 1,600 loaded cars stand-
ing in the yards in Jacksonville. Just I
what this means, only those familiar with t
railroading can comprehend. The Atlantic (
Coast Line, however, is better fixed to 1
handle an enormous blockade of this kind
than any of the other roads centering
here, for that road has recently put in
miles and miles of side tracks and with
some maneuvering can place thie ars
where they can be unloaded as needed by
With thirty-one vessels in port there
will no longer be any necessity for con-
signees to use the ears a warehouses. If
the railroads will place the ears where or-
dered, things will soon up and resume
In this connection it may be stated that
each of the roads is at work increasing
its terminal facilities in Jacksonville.
When the work of remodeling the Sea-
board Air Line local freight yards is com-
pleted, that road will be in position to
handle general merchandise much more
promptly than in the past. The road is
also arranging to put in a large transfer
yard in the western section of the city,
having recently acquired about thirty-five
acres of land just beyond Burch's old brick-
yard. It will also build new docks for the
handling of lumber and its capacity for
handling all lines of business will be
Alng the Mvh Fret.
Another great improvement that is now
under way and which will add materially
to the facilities of the railroads, is the
building of the Atlantic Coast Line tracks
alon gthe river front, from the southern
end of the export terminals, through Fair-
Beld and East Jacksonville, to the old mill
site known as Clark's mill, lying between
Hogan's creek and the old Fernandina and
Jacksonville railroad. This river line will
come around Commodores Point sad will
be a great factor in seeing the location
of factories along the river front, where
they can have the advantage of water and
rail transportation directly at the doors of
te factories. It is understood that the
track will be about five hundred feet from
the river for the entire distance.
It is also reported, hut no oflial an-
2ouncement has been made, that the Sea-
3oard Air Lie has also seemed a right
of way for the construction of a track
that will parallel the track to be built
by the Atlantic Coast Line.

As an open market Jacksonville is achiev-
ing .the same success she has achieved in
all movements looking to the up-build-
ing of the city.
Every operator ought to begin to figure
on a few days vacation in September.
iTvery one of them ought to be at the
Turpentine Operators' Convention.
The next meeting of the Turpentine Op-
erators' Convention will be onj of the
most important ones ever held. There
has been a great deal taking place since
Ite last meeting and the one to come
ought to be full of interest.
The congestion of the Jacksonville
freight yards is proving of great damage
to the business interests of Florida. The
railroads ought to do something. Ship-
pers ought to insist upon this, but at the
same time it would be well for both ele-
ments to get together and to have an

more courteous disposition toward the
trade and are trading with a few more of
the "common people" than formerly. Agi-

INDEPENDENCE IN TRADING.
The market reports of Savannah and
Jacksonville for the past week show that
there has been an independence in trading
in this market which has not been shown
by Savannah for years From a study of
the table of comparison on another page
in this issue of the Record, it can be
seen that the trading in Jacksonville was
active and unhampered by any well or-
ganized movement to bear or to bull the
market, and that the prices have been
influenced to a greater extent by the con-
ditions and the supply and demand than
they have been in the other markets of
In the lower grades the prices in Jack-
sonville have ranged higher than those of
Savannah and Jacksonville for the week
has been more than keeping up the prices
on the higher grades. Buyers have been
offering in some cases a sharp advance for
rosin here to what the Savannah prices
have been quoted. While this appears to
be a little mysterious, since the Jackson-
ville buyers have been taking goods from
both markets, there has been guessing
as to the cause, without arriving at any
conclusion. The Jacksonville stock has
been bought and sold conservatively and
without the slightest tinge of excitement
characterizing these sales.
The effect of all this is to demonstrate
fu.iy that Jacksonville is an independent
open market and that, conditions are fast
shaping themselves here so as to give this
city the prestige her location calls for in
the handling of naval stores. Shipments
have been heavy this week and the stocks
here have been increasing regularly as the
new crop is being marketed.
THE LABOR QUESTION.
Georgia is making an effort to induce
tne proper kind of immigration to that
State. In referring to a bill before the
legislature the Savannah News says:
"A determined effort is to be made to
have an immigration bill passed at this
session of the Legislature. In view of the
fact that the demand for labor is very
great in about all parts of the State, it is
fair to assume that there will be a gen-
eral disposition to push the bill along as
fast as possible. The difficulty that will
be encountered is in reaching an agreement
as to the provisions of a bill that should
be kept clearly in mind: C -y Gm
"In shaping the bill the fact should be
kept clearly in mind that two classes of
immigrants are wanted, namely, a class
that will quickly develop into land own -rs
and farmers and a class that will be sat-
isfied to be laborers. The mills, farms and
mines are without a sufficient labor force.
Laborers, however, can he obtained among
the foreigners arriving in this country i'
the right methods for getting them are
adopted. It will be necessary to show
them that they can do as well in the South
as in any other section of the country, if
not better. And it will be necessary to
have agents at Ellis Island to present
the claims of the State, and to see to it
that only those capable of doing the kind
of work required of them are forwarded.
"It is the other class of immigrants
that is particularly desired, because it is
expected they will develop into property
owning citizens and will be assimilated.
There is only one way of securing thhr.-.
and that is by advertising in the localities~
in Europe from which immigrants ar de
sired the State's advantages, or by send-
ing agents there and bringing the inmi.r-
grants here in colonies. If we get colcnes
established in different parts of the State
the hardest part of the work will be done,
because these colonists will themselves ad-
vertise the State by their letters to their
friends in their native countries.
"We have seen how Fitzgerald has
grown. The first settlers there were so
well satisfied with the climate and the
country that they wrote to their F.iend
in the States from which they ca:r.e, an-
induced some of them to follow them to
Georgia. This has been going on ever sine,
Fitzgerald was settled and is still going
on. The place is growing rapidly, and
promises to become one of the largest of
the interior cities. Fitzgerald furnishes a
lesson for those who are handling this im-
migration matter that it would be \a !i to
EXCELLENT PORT RECORD.
Sixty-Eight Vessels Entered and Cleared
up to July 19.
That July will be a banner month in
shipments for the port of Jacksonville, is
evident from the fact that for the first
nineteen days in this month, sixty-eight
vessels have entered and cleared.
During the same period in May fifty-
three vessels entered and cleared, and
during the same period in June, forty-six
vessels entered and cleared, which goes
to show that the business of this port is
Up to the closing hour of the custom
house yesterday afternoon, the official rec-
ords showed that thirty-two sailing ves-
sels had entered port this month, to date,
and eleven steamships, making a total of
forty-three vessels entered to date.
Nine sailng vessels have cleared and
twelve steamships, making a total of twen-
ty-one. Most of the sailing vessels enter-
ing this port this month have crossed the
bar during the past week and tug boats
have been on a hustle to bring them up
to the city front.
The custom house records show that
45.200 crossties have been shipped, 9,500
bundles of shingles and 1,250,000 loose
shingles. The amount of cypress lumber
shipped amounted to 653.000 feet and the
amount of yellow pine lumber shipped
amounts to 5,983,168 feet, of which 305,-
feet went to a foreign port.

FRIDAY'S SAVANNAH MARKET.
Impression There That the Market Will
Go No Lower.
In referring to the naval stores market
for Friday, the Savannah News of to-day
Spirits turpentine sold readil yat 57
cents yesterday, both during and after
the session. It is the belief of many that
the price will hardly go lower, but that
any change will be for the better. The
market opened firm and unchanged, with
sales of 519 casks and closed firm and
unchanged with sales of 315 additional
casks. In the late trading hour all offer-
ings were taken at quotations, a number of
buyers sharing the supply. The receipts
for the day were 1,379 casks, of which
250 were from Brunmwiek. The shipments
were 76 casks, all coastwise. The New
York market was quoted quiet at 00 cents,
and the London market at 43I. 4%d.
Rosins were apparently in good demand
yesterday, and in the late trading many
of the grades made gains. The opening
was firm at prices below, which were at an
advance in a large number of grades from
the previous session. The total sales were
3,205 barrels In the late trading hour
the bulk of the offerings were sold at an
advance of 10 cents for WW and K, and
10 cents up outside for D and CB, 5 cents
up for WG, M and I, and 5 cents up out-
side for H, G and F. Another lot sold at
an advance on some lower grades. The re-
ceipts for the day were 2,24 barrels and
the shipments 875, all coastwise. The
New York market was quoted dull at $3.85.
JAPS TO GROW RICE.
Tney Are Investiating Codition i the
The two Japanese sent out by the Uni-
ted States Department of Agriculture to
look over the rice lands of Georgia and
Souh Carolina, have recently been within
a few miles of Savannah over in South
Carolina, and south in the vicinity of Da-
rien. The Japanese are making the inves-
tigations with a view to reporting to the
Japanese government as to the outlook
i nthis section of the belt.
A large colony of Japanese was located
in Texas in time for last year's crop, and
are reported to have been satisfied with the
results and in many instances have sent
for their families.
In Texas the soil is rich, but is easily
exhausted, no overflow being possible for
the fertilization of the fields, as is the
case along the Savannah and other river.
The Texas lands are said to wear out in
three or four years, while some of the
lands around Savannah have been in al-
most continuous cultivation by rice plant-
ers for over 100 years.
In Japan one family is lucky to get an
acre to grow rice on, the land being val-
ued at about $300 in acrrency of the
United States. In this country land m
be obtained from $10 to $40 an acre. It
has been suggested that should the Jap-
anese come they would in all probability
reclaim large areas now abandoned to the
rise and fall of the rivers.
Thank you, Florida fared very well in
sponge, and a lot of other things Florida
is rapidly being developed. Her poibli-
ties are great, tdqee--_00 9a,22.

Mr. Fant brings encouraging reports

damage the cotton crop heavily, in some
instances almost demolishing the pros-

a good yield the coming season are fine,
that the acreage is about the same as

phosphate is carried by train to Liver-
pool and there conveyed in lighters to the

of the best neep water harbors on the
Gulf of Mexico. The building of this
road means much for Arcadia, as it will
give her deep water connections with New
York, New Orleans, Galveston, Key West,
Havana and Isthmus of Panama connec-
tions. At present the railroad facilities
are not able to take care of the immense
crops of oranges and vegetables that leave
this division, but with new railroad com-
petition, much better rates can be obtained
by the merchants. Arcadia has a very
bright future, as she has splendid terri-
tory surrounding her for the raising of
fruits and vegetables. The cattle kings
of South Florida live here and thousands
of cattle are shipped annually to Cuba
and Key West.
The announcement in the press that
Col. Peter O. Knight had purchased the
Plant City, Arcadia and Gulf railroad was
received by citizens with great satisfac-
tion, as Col. Knight has plenty of back-
ing and it is believRl this means another
road into this city. It will traverse a
territory rich in phosphate and timber
and lands suitable for raising oranges and
vegetables. All it has needed was a rail-
road to develop its resources. Fifteen
miles of the road have already been con-
-tructed and survey for the rest of the
road will soon be made.

U. S District Attorney Brinag Action to
Enforce Safety Appliance Law.
United States District Attorney John
M. Cheney yesterday instituted proceed-
ings in the United States court against
the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com-
pany, the Seaboard Air Line Railway
Company and the St. Johns River Termi-
This action, the bringing of which was
predicted in the Times-Union several weeks
ago when the statement of the department
of justice was published, is brought on
the alleged failure of the defendant com-
panies to have cars hauled by them prop-
erly equipped with the safety appliances
that make it unnecessary for employees to
stand between cars when coupling and un-
According to the declarations filed yes-
terday with Clerk E. O. Locke, the At-
lantic Coast Line is the greatest offender,
there being five causes of action set up
against that defendant. In the cases of
the Seaboard Air Line and the St. Johns
River Terminal Company, but one cause
of action is set up.
The penalty for violation of this act
is $100 for each instance of violation
proved. The following is a brief synop-
sis of the charges brought against each
of the three defendant companies:
The first cause of action against the At-
lantic Coast Line Railroad Company, as
set up in the declaration, is that on Feb-
ruary 15, 1906, they hauled a certain car,
to-wit, No .15,155, on which the coupling
apparatus at the one end was broken and
the grab-irons or hand-holds on the other
The second cause of action is that on the
same date, February 15, 1906, the defend-
ant company hauled over its lines a cer-
tain car, to-wit, No. 20,639, the grab-irons
or hand-holds of which were missing from
one of the ends of the said car.
The third cause of action sets up that
on February 15, 1906, the defendant com-
pany hauled over its tracks a certain car,
to-wit, No. 23,288, from one end of which
the grab-irons or handholds were missing.
The fourth cause of action sets up
charges that the defendant company on
February 17, 1906, hauled over their lines a
certain car, to-wit, D. S. 7,496, the coupling
and uncoupling apparatus on one end of
which was out of order and could not be
used. It further charges that the car
was not prolprly equipped at the other
end with the automatic coupling appa-
The fifth and last cause of action sets
up that on February 17, 1906, the defend-
ant company hauled over its lines a cer-
tain car, to-wit, Georgia Railway No. 4,009,
frqm one end of which the grab-irons or
hand-holds were missing, and from the
other end of wlich both were missing.
The government claims $100 on each
count, or cause of action, making a total
of $500 sought to be recovered from the

NOTIONS. . .
The one feature of the naval stores
market for the week just ending was the
tendency toward sharp advances in the
lower grades of rosin. That trading was
lively both here and at Savannah was evi-
dent from the state of the market and the
quotations posted at the close. In the up-
ward tendency Jacksonville had the better
of it, and toward the last few days it
could be seen that the Savannah forces
were making an effort to "get even" and
not be outdone by the Jacksonville open
market, which has maintained a policy
In Savannah it has been different. It
is evident that the movement there to
beat prices down was called to a sudden
halt by the active trading, heavy receipts
and heavy shipments from the Jacksonville
market. Savannah was not long in mak-
ing the figures as even as they could have
been made without heavy loss and the
indications are that for the coming week
prices here and at Savannah are to range
a little more even.
Turpentine suffered a decline of one-
fourth of a cent this week| Instead of

e the incipiency of taking good care of 57%1 being the level, spirits dropped the
ef. The prices for rosin here were due week previous to 571/ and at the close
tive trading and were not influenced of this week they are resting at the 57
inclination on the part of any mark. Despite the fact that during the
tent force to beat them down or to last week the woods have reported con-
them up. editions exceedingly unfavorable, spirits
could not ride on this influence and re-
mained stationary. For the coming week
there is nothing which offers an advance.
In New York the report is current that
the effect of free alcohol is being felt.
While the bill placing wood alcohol on the
free list does not go into effect until next
January, buyers are cautious and are fear-
ing that the effect will be to beat prices
Activity in rosin in Jacksonville for the
week, was due in part to the fact that
two steamers were at Fernandina to load
with rosin for export. Not being a suffic-
ient stock on hand there, those who had
chartered the two ships were drawing
upon the Jacksonville stocks.

THICK LAYER OF FULLER'S EARTH
FOUND IN GEORGIA.
An important geological discovery has
just been made in South Georgia by Pro-
fessor 8. W. McCallie, assistant State geol-
ogist, who visited Decatur county in com-
pany with Dr. Eugene A. Smith, State
geologist of Alabama, T. H. Aldrich, of
Washington, D. C., a noted paleontologist,
and Dr. I. M. Harper, of New York.
These gentlemen went to Decatur coun-
ty to study geological conditions there
and in the surrounding country, and while
there made an important discovery in re-
gard to fuller's earth, which has been pros-
pected to a limited extent in the vicinity
of Attapulgus, some fifteen miles south of
A discovery of the fossils in the clays
and sands immediately above the fuller's
O earth along the railroad cut, led to the
identifications of these fossils by Mr. Al-
drich as belonging to the Chattahoochee
series of rocks. As this series of rocks is
spread out over a large part of Decatur
and Grady counties, and portions of
Thomas and Brooks near the Florida line,
this valuable clay is likely to be found
at any point in that region.
At Attapulgus, where the best expos-
ures of fuller's earth occurred, it attains
a thickness of more than four feet, and
appears to he of excellent quality.
This peculiar clay which now has a
Market value of about $7 a ton, is used
chiefly for clarifying oils and fats and
for deodorizing and bleaching purposes. In
the last few years it has largely super-
seded the use of bone black for these
Said That Agreement Has Been Reached
With Great Britain.
Victoria, B. C., July 20.-According to
advices received yesterday, negotiations
at Washington for the cessation of pelagic
sealing. on the basis of purchase of the
Victoria and the Hakodate sealing fleet
an dthe indemnification of the pelagic
sealers for the loss of their industry, have
almost been concluded.
Sir Henry Durand, British ambassador,
and the United States secretary of state
reached an agreement, it is reported, and
a commission will be appoint, with one
representative each from Great Britain,
Canada and the United States to work
out the details of the agreement for the
preservation of the seal herds.
One condition of the sealing settlement,
it is said, will be the cessation of all seal
killing on the rookeries at the Prybiloff
islands for at least one year except such
as may be necessary for the support of

BROOKSVILLE ICE FACTORY.
Crystal Parade Headed by a Band of
Brooksville, July 20. Headed by the
1woodmen cornet band, qllite a procession
composed of several wagons loaded with
bright crystal ice, moved up Main street
monday morning amid the loud cheers and
applause of the bystanders who had con-
gregaled upon the several corners. This
..eniwstration announced the fact that
tihe Brooksville Ice and Cold Storage Com-
pany had "pulled" their tirst ice and that
they were ready to serve the general pub-
lie. As the procession passed along small
l yvs were engaged in throwing out pieces
of the frozen crystal to the general pub-
lie. The ice company gave away several
hundred pounds of ice to their friends and
patrons. The Brooksville Ice and Cold
Storage Company is one of Brooksville's
new enterprises and is composed of home
people. The officers are V. H. Gwinn.
president; F. B. Coogler, vice-president;
Neal Law, secretary and treasurer; J. W.
liracken. general manager. While the new
company has had numerous difficulties to
contend with, they have at last installed
in Brooksville an enterprise which is bound
to prove a success. Manager Bracken has
la.Iored unceasingly for the best interests
of his company, and his labors have been
Mr. Bracken is being heartily congrat-

For more than two hours Thursday
night fifteen members of the city council
discussed the proposed street railway
franchise ordinances and listened tb state-
ments made by Chairman B. F. Dillon of
t..e board of bond trustees and City At-
torney J. M. Barrs. At the end of that
time the whole matter was referred to a
special committee for further investiga-
tion, consideration and report.
The meeting was held pursuant to ad-
journment last Tuesday night and was at-
tended by President Baker and Council-
men Bettes, Bowden, Brown, Cahill, Dud-
ley, Hoke, Holt, Hirschman, Ingram, Lil-
lienthal, Owen, Riles, Smith and Weinbarg;
and also by Chairman Dillon of the board
of bond trustees, Chairman Dignan and
Commissioners Warrington and Knight, of
the board of public works, City Attorney
Barrs and a Times-Union reporter. Sev-
eral other citizens were present when the
meeting was called to order, but the
council decided that it would be best to
go into an executive session and all were
excluded, with the exception of the Times-
Union reporter, who always attends the
meetings of the council and whom the
members apparently look upon as an ex-
But, while the Times-Union man was
there and heard all that was going on, all
that he can say of the proceedings is that
on motion of Councilman Bowden, of 'the
Seventh Ward, the president of the coun-
cil was directed to appoint a commtitee
of five, composed of the three members
of the committee on laws and rules and
two other members of the council, and
that this committee confer with a special
committee of the board of bond trustees on
the subject of the Jacksonville Electric
Light Company going out of the business
of furnishing lights and power in compe-
tition with the city, and regarding the ap-
plications for franchises of the Jackson-
ville Electric Company, and George W.
Clark and associates. The committee was
instructed to report to an informal meet-
ing of the council as a whole, to be
called by the chairman, and make such
recommendations that, in its opinion, will
be for the best interests of the city and
fair and equitable to the applicants for
street railway franchises.
In addition to the members of the com-
mittee on laws and rules, which is com-
posed of President Baker and Councilmen
