conservatively estimated that over 50,00W

many copies will be circulated by the im

will send copies to all leading newspapers

for thousands of copies of this immigration
The publishers of the Industrial Recort
are involving an expense of several thous

deserve every encouragement. Organiza

S At the annual meeting of the Stock-

I others. was adopted:-
"Be it resolved, that a distribution
among its shareholders is ordered of so

In July and August, 1906, when the tur-
pentine market showed an unaccountable
weakness and tendency to d.op below 571/e,
it was deemed necessary for the protection
of the interests of the stockholders of this
Company, a large majority of whom are
producers, to go into the t market and in-
vest the available funds of this Company
in turpentine. Thereupon the Company
bought, from time to time and at prices
ranging from 57i/,e to 57i/se, 3,765 barrels
of turpentine. This investment not only
tended to strengthen the market, which
immediately showed a strong upward ten-
dency, but proved a very satisfactory one
on its merits; for these purchases of tur-
pentine were sold at an average of 67c
a gallon, and the entire transactimn nettedl
the company approximately $13.000.00,--
and these net earnings on this account
were more than sufficient to cover the ci-
tire expense for the year of the Naval
Stores Export Company and its subsidiary
company, the Southern Warehouse Com-
pany, including salaries, insurance, taxes
and incidentals. The cash mount of this

HORTICULTURALISTS TO MEET.
Annual Meeting of State Society at St.
Peterburg Next Month.
The following notice of the next meet-
ing of the Florida Horticultural Society
has been sent out by the secretary to the
editors of all the newspapers of the State,
with a request that the same be published:
Mr. Editor-Dear Sir: The next meet-
ing of the Florida State Horticultural So-
ciety will be held at St. Petersburg, Fla.,
commencing Tuesday, May 14, and contin-
uing through the 15th, 16th and 17th.
The membership of the Florida State
Horticultural Society is something less
than 500 members when it should really
have about 2,000 members. There are
certainly 2,000 wide-awake agriculturalists
in the State of Florida, who would be
benefited by being a member of the Flor-
ida State Horticultural Society. In nearly
every other State the report of the horti-
cultural society is printed by the State,
but in our State the society depends en-
tirely for its expenses on the membership
fee of $1.00 from the members. The an-
nual report alone is worth many times
$1.00 to anyone interested in Florida's agri-
culture and horticulture.
Where members can attend the annual
meeting they get the benefit of the re-
.liced rates on .the railroads and at the
hotels, and have the privilege of mingling
an:i getting acquainted with the very best
people of our land. At nearly every meet-
ing of the society there are papers or ad-
dresses by prominent people connected
with institutions in our State or the de-
partment of agriculture, and it is expected
there will be several addresses of this kind
on the program for our St. Petersburg
I hope, Mr. Editor, you will urge every
one of your readers to become a member
of the society, and he can do so by remit-
ting me $1.00 and on receipt of same 1
will forward him a certificate of member-
ship, which wil entitle him to all the
special rates and a copy of the annual
report. The life membership fee is $10.00,
which will entitle to all the benefits of
special rates and a copy of the annual
proceedings for the balance of his natural
Hoping that you will help us to swell
the membership roll of our next meeting
to 2,000, I am, yours respectfully,
E. 0. PAINTER, Secretary,
Florida State Horticultural Society.
GEORGIA CROPS DAMAGED.
Caused by the Unusually Cold Weather
Atlanta, Ga., April 11.-As a result of
the coldest April weather on record, the
opinion is expressed by Commissioner of
Agriculture Hudson, that growing crops in

many sections have been seriously dam-

commissioner, "that is up has been killed,
and as much more which is not yet up,

that has been done to peaches, but re-
ports indicate that it has been extensive."
OUR PER CAPITAL WEALTH.
The Census Bureau has announced that
the per capital public indebtedness in the
United States is $35.50. The total in-
debtedness, including national government,
State, county, township, precinct and
school districts, is $2,729,990,120. For
every $2.85 of public indebtedness there
is $100 ni national wealth. In Great Brit-
ain the ratio is $10.50, instead of $2.85;
in France, $14.25; Italy, $17.36 to $100
of national wealth. The percentage of

cause it prints full market reports, and

A DANGEROUS DISPOSITION.
We regret to see a decided and danger-
ous disposition upon the part of the Legis-
lature, now in session at Tallahassee to
impede the prosperity and progress of the
State by the introduction of bills calcu-
lated to embarrass the railroads and other
Nor is this tendency by any means con-
fine.l to the lower House. as has sometimes
leen the case in former years. Some of
the most drastic and far-reaching of these
measures have had their birth in the Sen-
ate; and the progressive and conservative
citizens of the State can only trust that
the House will refuse to give to these
doubtful bills the stamp of its approval.
One of the measures in question is Sen-
ator Tramnrell's bill for the taxation of
franchises. Another is his bill placing the
telegraph and telephone companies in the
hands of the Railroad Commission-a
body by the way, that already has on its
hands more business than it can well at-
In the meantime, the powers of that com-
mission are, in all probability, to be ex-
tended, while today the Commissioners
and the Attorney-General of the State are
debating the question of counsel to the
Commission, the latter contending that he
should act as its legal representative, while
the Commission urges the necessity of em-
ploying special counsel.
Few legislative bodies in this State
have ever had before them greater op-
portunities of usefulness than the Legisla-
ture now in -ession. and we trust that,
ere the Ides of June shall bring its delib-
erations to a close, wiser counsels and a
more conservative spirt may prevail.
A PECULIAR PROPOSITION.
A bill that is likely to meet with con-
siderable opposition has been introduced
in both Houses of the Legislature; but
has thus far, strange to say, attracted lit-
tle, if any. attention from those interested
in the subject it is designed to cover.
We refer to the bill prohibiting the
cutting of turpentine boxes and the cut-
ting or removal of timber from land sold
for taxes; but we need hardly refer to
the injury any such measure as this is
likely to inflict upon two of Florida's
There are, of course, two sides to every
question, and there can be no doubt that
more or less injustice has at times been
involved in our tax sale system. But this
is not the point at issue in this case.
The point to be considered is simply
this: If the State gives a title and pock-
ets the price, by what right does it tie a
string to that title, or dictate to the
buyer the use to which he may put the
r-operty it has legally conveyed to him?
HoI can the State authorities consist-
ently give a title one moment, and the
next, buch legislation as that in question,
seek' to east a cloud upon it?
The position of the State is clearly un-
tenable. It must be admitted that a tax
*itle is not always the best in the world;
iut it is, at least, better than none; and
:t certainly ill becomes the sovereign State
if Ftorida to issue titles with one hand,
while with the other it seeks to deprive
'hem of ab practical value.
AGINN' THE CORPORATIONS."
(From our Staff Correspondent.)
Tallahassee, April 11.
Whatever else may be said of the illus-
trious convocation of statesmen now hold-
;inf forth in Tallahassee, it may safely be
'aken for grated that the House of Rep-
-esentatives is aginn' the corporations."
The tendency to enlarge the powers and
-trengthen the hands of the Railroad Com-
mission is unmistakable; and neither the
-ailroads, nor any other "vested interests"
of the State. need expect anything from
the hand of the present Legislature.

This bill was reported in the Senate
to-day, by the way, as follows:

two bills to regulate lobbying which have
bobbed up more or less serenely, both in
House and Senate.
The Senate bill was put on the calendar
by Senator West, of Santa Rosa, while in
the House the high olticiating priest was
tlie bald-headed reformer of Marion coun-
ty, the Hon. George G. Matthews.
The Senate bill had accorded it today

to regulate some of Mr. Beard's pet meas-

cellent bill," but thought that it might
be made "'stronger."

12 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Prospectus Florida Immigration Number of the Weekly Industrial
The INDUSTRIAL RECORD PUBLISHING COMPANY wl issue at some date on or about the
first of May next, a special number, to be entitled "The Florida Immigration Number."
This edition will comprise something like 100 pages, carefully compiled and edited, and will be inter-
estingly illustrated, all illustrations bearing upon the subject in question and designed for the purpose of
attracting to the State of Florida desirable immigrants, both from the domestic immigrant centres and
from foreign countries.
It is the purpose of the Industrial Record Co. to issue an edition of fully 50,000 copies, and to circu-
late it by its regular channels of circulation, augmented by the industrial departments of various railroads
coming into the South, and through individual and corporate interests throughout Florida which may
have their own individual sources of distribution. It will be mailed to all the newspapers of the country,
with requests for favorable mention, and will be advertised through the leading magazines and farm jour-
nals, to be sent upon request to interested parties who may have their attention thus directed to Florida
and to its advantages from a farming, commercial and industrial standpoint.
In order to attract the attention of those people who may not read the English language, an epitome
of the entire edition will be printed in several languages, namely: German, Italian. Scandinavian, Rus-
sian, and as many others as we may deem advisable.
The edition, from an editorial and compilation standpoint will cover all subjects setting forth the ad-
vantages of Florida to the capitalist, immigrant and the homeseeker, and will have a large number of
special articles by well known authorities on the various phases of the immigrant situation. Among these
will be articles by Commissioner Watson, of South Carolina, telling of his visits to Europe to get immi-
grants and the establishment of an immigrant line between European points and South Carolina ports;
an article setting forth the means used by other States in the Softh in inducing immigration-the officials,
amount of money expended, etc.; an article covering the work being done by the railroads in inducing do-
mestic immigration to the Southeastern States. The edition will also contain an article from the Gover-
nor of the State of Florida upon the subject in question; from the Department of Agriculture, giving
detailed and tabulated information as to Florida lands, advantages, opportunities, etc. It will contain
among other things an article on the effort now being made (and we trust will have been accomplished by
the date of the issue) for the establishment in Florida of a Department of Immigration, which matter will
come before the approaching Florida Legislature. It will contain articles from the heads of various com-
mercial organizations in Florida, notably from Mr. Rawls. President of the Florida State Board of Trade;
Mr. Fuller, of the Tampa Board of Trade; Capt. Garner, of the Jacksonville Board r* Trade; Col. W. P.
Corbett, Chairman of the Immigration Committee of the Jacksonville Board of Trade, Mr. Edwin Brob-
ston, whose efforts are well known in immigration work, and others. It will contain in a concise, paragraph
form "one thousand facts about Florida" for the quick reader who wants to know all about the State be-
fore visiting it. It will set forth the advantages of specific localities for specific purposes; for instance, the
fruit section, the vegetable section, the general farming section, and the opportunity es offered by Florida
today for the location here of large maunfactories and smaller industries of all kinds. It will containn facts
of interest regarding the various towns and cities of the State, their adaptability and desirability, matters
of transportation, etc. It will deal with every phase of the labor question to attract a sirable labor to this
All in all, the edition is planned upon a most elaborate scale and is planned to cover every point of
interest that may appeal to the man who has his eye on Florida and to the man who is looking for a
desirable farming, manufacturing or business location in. the South.
The editor-in-chief of the Industrial Record, Mr. J. A. Hollomon, will have directorship of all articles
prepared for this special number, and the detail preparation will be in the hands of a staff of competent
writers, already employed for that purpose.
This "Immigration Edition of the Industrial Record" will no doubt mark an epoch in trade journal-
ism in the South, and it is fitting that the Industrial Record should issue an edition of this kind, in view of
the fact that it is the exponent of the leading industrial and commercial organizations of the State, be-
ing the official organ of the Turpentine Operators' Association, the Southeastern Cane Growers' Asso-
ciation, endorsed by the Georgia-Florida Sawmill Association, etc.
In preparing the data for this special Immigration Edition, much attention will be given in gather-
ing facts and figures which will prove valuable to the energetic and progressive organizations and private
citizens in getting passed by the coming Legislature a bill creating an Immigration Department and in ask-
ing the Legislature to appropriate a liberal fund for carrying on this great work.
The Industrial Record will work hand in glove with the Florida State Board of Trade, and individual
hoards of trade of the State, in their efforts to sueessfully solve the question of increasing the population
if the State with a desirable citizenship.

organization, if it is deemed for the com-
pany to eater actively into the business for
which it was organized. 1 dii thoroughly
satisfied that the interest of the producers
who are stockholders in this company, de-
mands that the company should remain
intact, be re-organized on a basis which
would make its stock worth par and be
equal to the fair value of its present net
assets. Its mere presence in the market
will have a tendency to prevent manipu-
lations of prices during the producing sea-
son and in this way earn for its stock-
holders who are producers, substantial div-
idends in stable and sustained prices, and
I know of no reason why the company
Should not earn and pay fair annual divi-
dends. I therefore recommend to the
stockholders that a committee of stock-
holders be appointed to appraise conser-
vatively,- the net assets of this company,
that thereupon the capital stock be re-
iduced to an amount which shall be equal
to the net value of its assets.
I am not thus satisfied that the interest
if the factorage companies holding stock
in this company would be subserved by the
reorganization and continued existence of
this company, and therefore in order to
meet this condition I recommend that the
company buy at an agreed price the stock
held by the three factorage companies
holding stock in this company, so that it
may be hereafter, as it should have been
always, a producers' company. In support
of the recommendation which I have made,
I submit herewith a copy of a resolution
adopted by the Board of Directors of this
company at a meeting held January 26th,
"That this Board recommend to the
stockholders at their annual meeting on
the second Tuesday in April, 1907, the ap-
pointment of a committee to carefully and
accurately appraise the assets and fix the
liabilities, if any, of the company, and that
upon the report of this committee the
capital stock of this company be reduced
to an amount equivalent to the next value
of the assets oLthis company, and that
thereupon the company enter actively into
the business of buying, selling and export-
ing naval stores and otherwise doing busi-
ness as authorized by its charter."
All of which is respectfully submitted.
W. M. TOOMER. President.
Acting upon the suggestions made there-
in, after a considerable discussion as to
the best course for the company to pur-
sue, the factors who held stock interests in
the company were requested to name a
pries for their stock, thereby relieving the
company of any stockholding interest other
than that held by producers ohly, and af-
ter an informal recess of a few minutes,
W. C. Powell, president of the Consoli-
dated Naval Stores Company, speaking for
the combined stock interests of the Con-
solidated Company, the Barnes-Jessup
Company, and the West-Flynn-Harris
Company, stated to the stockholders that
the factors would take 171/2 cents for their
stock. Without further discussion, the
offer was accepted, and the stock of these
factorage concerns purchased at that fig-
ure. It was then declared the sense of
the meeting that the company should be
reorganized on the basis of its actual as-
sets. and should operate in compliance
with the provisions of its charter.
The nominating committee then nomi-
nated the following board of directors, and
they were iunanimously elected:

The comllpanyt i-, now owned exclusively
by producers of noval stores. The stock
outstanding will be called in and new stock
issued on a basis of the assets of the com-
pany. which is about $200,000; and the
company, as soon as the reorganization is
perfected, will enter actively into the bus-
iness for which it was originally organized.
Under the wise direction of so able a
board of directors. the Record predicts that
the company will be a potent factor in the
naval stores trading industry.
The very fact that it is a pro--
ducers' export company, conservatively and
economically managed, with a safe and
sane policy and a good credit, will make
of it a power in the naval stores world;
and those interests that -are antagonistic
to the producing interests will know that
they cannot crucify the industry with an
organization of this kind to stand as an
exponent of its interests.

SA Progressive Southern Wholesale Drug House.
The Southern Drug Manufacturing Co.,
of Jacksonville. Fla., whose advertisement
appeals in another part of this paper, is
one of the largest and most thoroughly
equipped manufacturing plants for com-
missary gods. package goods, flavoring
extracts and sundries in the South.
This business was establishedin 1896 for
the purpose of manufacturing and putting
up such drugs and medicines as are used
in to!: missaries and general stores. It
was carried on every year with increasing
business until 1901. when it was incorpo-
rated and enlarged, their increasing trade
having demanded this increase of capital.
Finding that they still had too small a
capitall t:, continue their ever-increasing
business, they later reorganized and in-
(torporated with a capital stock of $100,-
000.00. and added to their business a gen-
era Iline of drugs, patent medicines, sun-
dries and so on, and the company is now
numbered among the leading wholesale
(Continued from page 7.)
briefly summarize as follows:
Through its attorneys, Mr. E. J. L'Engle,
..r. John C. Cooper and P. A. Van Agnew,
the company began its suit in the United
States circuit court on January 11, 1906,
by filing the bill for injunction and relief
from the drainage tax.
Those made defendants in the action
were Napoleon B. Broward, as over; A.
C. Croom, as State comptroller; William
V. Knott, as State treasurer; William H.
Ellis, as attorney general; Benjamin Me-
Lin, as State commissioner of agriculture,
against the same defendants as the board
of drainage commissioners: G. E. Dutton,
as tax collector of St. Lucie county; T.
H. Gautier, as tax collector of Dade coun-
ty; W. C. Langford, as tax collector of
DeSoto county; and R. I. o. Travers, as
tax collector of Lee county.
The complainant company asked the
court to declare chapter 5377, acts of 1905,
Slaws of Florida, unconstitutional, null and
void; to declare the levy and assessment
of taxes null and void and restrain the'
collection thereof; and for injunction tem-
porary, pendente lite, and perpetual.
On January 12, 1906, Judge Alec Boar-
nman, then presiding for Judge Locke,
granted the temporary ifijunction and
gave the defendants, as named above, until
February 1. 1906. to show cause why in-
junction pendente lite should not be issued.
On February 8, 1906, argument began on
this order to show cause why the injunc-
tion should not be continued. pending the
final adjudication of the suit. This argu-
ment was heard before Judge Locke; At-
druggists and manufacturing chemists of

ilg a floor space of 18.000 feet, and are

The officers cf the company are E. T.
Rigney, president; R. V. Covington, vice-
president; W. B. Prevatt, secretary. Their
stockholders comprise a large number of
the wealthiest turpentine men in the
State. The business is managed by capa-
. le and reliable men, who are giving their
undivided attention to it, with the view
of procuring the greatest possible effi-

dence of the position they hold here at

ingly recommend them to our readers as

and careful as to the purity of its goods.

plainant, and Attorney General William

arguing for the defendants.
On March 1, 1906, Judge Locke made an
order continuing the injunction in force
until the suit was finally settled.
On March 22, 1906, Gov. Broward and
his board of drainage commissioners met
in Tallahassee aid the tax collectors of
the five counties in the drainage district
were ordered to proceed with the collec-
tion of the tax on all lands in the district
save those of the Southern States Land
and Timber Company, which were protect-
ed by the injunction issued by Judgeo
This raised a storm of protest. Com-
panies with large holdings flocked to tihe
court for relief. The protest finally grew
so loud that on April 4. 1906, Gov. Broward
and his drainage commissioners issued an-
other order to the tax collectors, supend-
ing the collection of the drainage tax
until thl suit were finally settled, and per-
mitting the payment of the school tax,
etc.. without the payment of the acreage
On May 7, 1906, the board of drainage
commissioners filed their answer to the
suit brought by the Southern States Land
and Timber Company. and the issue was
Reference was made to Attorney Charles
S. Adams as special master, to take testi-
mony and report back to the court, and

wearying, work of taking testimony, ex-
amining maps, etc., etc., etc.
In the meantime the fight on the drain-
age amendment had, begun, with Gov.
Browald "stumping the State," in support
of his scheme, and the amendment to the
lonititution. This was overwhelmingly
defeated at the polls, in November, 1906.
Conclusion of Battle.
The taking of testimony wound up soon
thereafter, and the voluminous report of
Special Master Adams was made to the

on its final hearing, and was fully argued
hy counsel for both the litigants, and sub-
mitted, the argument concluding on Sat-
urday, April 6.
Yesterday came the order of Judge
Iocke, as given in full above, which finally
winds up the long fight. a legal battle that
has been going on, in one stage or another,
since January 11, 1906, when the first of
the suits was filed. Three of these suits,
as stated above, are now ended, unless an
appeal, regarded as unlikely, should be
In the three. other cases against the
same defendants, in which the Model Land
Company, the florida East Coast Railway
Company and the Boston and Florida At-
lantic Coast Land Company were the re-
spective plaintiffs, Judge Locke made an
order overruling the demurrers filed by the
defendants, and giving them until rule day
in May to further plead.
These cases will follow the course of
that of the Southern States Land and
Timber Company, the facts being the same
and the lan involved the same, and with
the settling of the first named ease ending
as it does in a sweeping victory for the
complainant company, interest in the
"drainage fight" is ended, save for the gen-
eral desire for a written opinion from
