DICOVERY OF PHOSPHATE IN FLOR-
If one had visited Ocala at any time
between the latter '60s and the early 8Os,
he would have met a very interesting gen-
tleman, who had refugee here from Cedar
Keys soon after that port was blockaded
by the federal fleet.
The inme of this gentleman was Dr.
Zenmah Butt, a physician of eminence,
* and at the outbreak of the severing of
the relations between the North and the
South, was a large mill operator at Cedar
Dr. Butt graduated in the class with Dr.
John W. Draper, who became so famous
as an author, and was himself devoted to
Dr. Butt early believed that phosphate
in large quantities existed in Florida, and
be was constantly on the search for it.
If one had visited his home at any time
between the years named, he would have
found his piama lined with rocks of all
sies and descriptions.
Wherever the doctor found a rock of un-
usual appearance be would pick it up and
take it to his home, break it in two and
rub the parts together vigorously, expect-
ing that if it contained phosphate it would
give out an odor somewhat resembling the
smell of guano, but as phosphate rock is
colorless, the doctor's long quest was never
During the year 1887, Mr. Adam L.
eichelberger, while digging a well on his
plaee at Panasoffkee, discovered a sub-
staace that, upon analysis, was found to
be gypsum, and as his find was written
up with some particularity by the local
newspapers, and was extensively copied
by the State press, many persons were
on the lookout for gypsum, which it was
believed would become a valuable ferti-
It was about this time that Mr. Alber-
tas Vogt, then living near the present
town of Dunnellon, in sinking a well came
across quantities of stuff that he believed
was gypsum, but an analysis showed that
it was phosphate.
Mr. Vogt took samples of his find, with
the analysis, to Mr. John F. Dunn, who
was at that time a prosperous banker in
Oeala, but as Mr. Dunn's attention had
never been directed to the study of phos-
phate, he declined to enter into the forma-
timo of a company, having for its object
the purchasing of the property, and the
establishing of a plant for the mining of
Bat Mr. Vogt was persistent and en-
deavored to impress Mr. Dunn with the
importance of his discovery, and the in-
trinsic value of phosphate as a fertilizer,
but as Mr. Dunn knew Mr. Vogt to be ex-
cessively optimistic, he was slow in plae-
ing reliance in his statements, but after
the lapse of about two months he finally
consented to send samples of the new
discovery to a well known chemical lab
oratory at" St. Louis for analysis. The
chemist there confirmed the analysis oe
the home chemist. Still this would not

Wonderful Water Power of the
Lake City, July 6.-"Way Down on the
Suwannee River!" The words have a
magic all their own, and Stephen Foster's
immortal melody shares with "Home,
Sweet Home" the distinction of being one
of the few lyrics that have been sung
around the world, and which have made
for themselves a place in the hearts of
mankind that time cannot disturb.
But in spite of all this-in spite of the
fact that thousands of people every year
eross the Suwannee river, on the Seaboard
Air Line, near Branford-how few of us
really know anything of this beautiful
stream, as it slowly makes its way from
its source in Georgia, through its rock-
bound banks, until at last it is lost in the
waters of the gulf.
It is safe to say that not one Floridian
in a thousand has any accurate knowledge
of the river, of the legends connected with
it, or of the people who lived along its
banks and to whom its waters are as
commonplace as those of any prosaic
stream that turns a millwheel in obscu-
It was the good fortune of the writer
of these lines, while in Lake City not
long ago, to receive an invitation from a
friend to ride out to a point in the Su-
wannee known as Suwannee shoals, where
many years ago the Goodbread family
"took up" land from the United States
government, and where for many years
they lived the free and independent life
of farmers-tilling the fertile soil, and
leaving behind them an honored line of
descendants, some of whom are still prom-
inent people in this section.
Among these is the Hon. A. 8. (ood-
bread, who is well remembered by the
writer as an efficient member of the leg-
islature from Columbia county in 1893,
and who is still a hale and well preserved
man. Mr. Goodbread, who was born on
the old home place near Suwannee shoals,
still lives near by in a comfortable brick
mansion, and has certainly succeeded in
getting around him much that makes life
The ride from Lake City to the Su-
wannee river is a pleasant one, and the
sylvan beauty of the scenery about the
shoals would surprise some of the wise-
acres who derive their impressions of
Florida from the window of a Pullman.
But the most notable feature of the fa-
mous river at this point is to be found
in something for which neither Florida nor
the Suwannee has ever been celebrated-
or even suspected.
Magnificent Water Power.
This, in short, is nothing more nor less
than a magnificent water power, derived
from the falls and rapids at this point,
and capable of transmission to lake City,
Slive Oak. White Springs and Jackson-
The river at this point is about 20i
ninety feet in height, crumbling. lessi-
cated, yellow bluffs, strongly resembling
cement, and the strong current here rushes
madly over shoals and rocks, which in-
vestigation shows to be composed of the
same material as that of which the bluffs
themselves are formed.
These shoals extend for about three-
quarters of a mile up and down the river,
and counting the two falls, the total fall
is about twenty-five feet.
These falls comprise, no doubt, the
heaviest and most available water power
in the State, and their location is such
that any power that may hereafter be
developed here can easily be transmitted.
not only to Lake City and Live Oak, but
to points much further removed.
It will doubtless come as a surprise to
most people-even to those who think
themselves thoroughly acquainted with the
State-to learn of the existence of any
such natural phenomenon in Florida; while
those self-constiuted Northern critics who
have so much to say of a State of which
they know nothing, will probably dispute
the existence of any such natural power.
Harnessing the Falls.
Nevertheless, the falls are there, and
the power is there; and the only ques-
tion now remaining to be solved is the
question of availability and the utiliza-
tion of this great natural force.
Several competent civil engineers have
already examined Suwannee shoals and
have passed their opinion on the site. All
have come to practically the same con-
clusion and are agreed that from 15,000
to 20,000-horse power may easily be de-
So general is the impression, however,
that Florida is little better than a level
plain, made up of swamp, pine barren and
marsh, that the eminent civil engineer,
residing in another State, at first flatly
refused to come here and survey the
shoals, and it was only after much per-
suasion that he was induced to send a
representative here. The latter's report,
however. was such as to modify the views
of his incredulous chief, who will, in a
short time, come here in person, to add
the weight of his opinion to the testi-
mony of the experts already recorded.
Power to Spare.
The shoals, as already stated, extend
three-quarters of a mile up and down the
river, and are, with the adjoining terri-
tory, located in Columbia and Hamilton
Counties, 12 miles from Lake City; 16
from Live Oak; 31% from White Springs
and 58 from Jacksonville. The power that
can, by proper manipulation, be developed
here. would be amply sufficient to run
I the electric light plants of all the above
, named cities, and then leave a considera-
, ble surplus available for other purposes.
SAs everybody knows, such power can now
be easily transmitted for distances much
I greater than those above noted, and it is
yards wide. It runs between bluffs, some now confidently believed that steps will
.ons Iw taken to harness a great natural
force that for countless generations has
mone to waste in these sylvan solitudes.
To accoiiillish thi,. it will be necessary
to construct a concrete dam at the proper
point in the shoals, and it is a curious fact
that much of the material necessary for
this work is to be found on the spot.
Analysis of Clay.
The 90-foot bluffs, which at this point
inclose the Suwannee river, are practically
solid beds of cement; while along the
banks below the falls, is to be found an-
other deposit, resembling mud. Both of
these deposits have been carefully ana-
lyzed by competent chemists, with the

The analysis of this day shows it to be
closely allied to Fuller's earth, and prac-
tical tests show that it possess the pecu-
liar power of clarifying oil that gives the
latter its commercial value. It is also
suitable for the manufacture of Portland
The "mud" resembles the "estuary mud"
of the Thames river in England-a sub-
stance which has in the old country long
been used in the manufacture of Portland
cement. Both of these deposits, it is
said, require only the addition of chalk
and limestone to produce a superior qual-
ity of cement.
Both deposits are present here in large
quantities, and can easily be made avail-
able. not only for the construction of the
dam and other engineering works at the
shoals, but for general commercial pur-
It may be asked why a water power
so valuable has never been utilized. The
answer lies upon the surface. For many
years the property along the banks of
the Suwanee at this point has been held
by different persons, and it is only within
the last few years that this valuable tract
has come into the hands of the Hon. John
D. Calloway, of this city, who, after a
heavy investment, both of time and mon-
ey, now finds himself in undisputed pos-
session of a body of land extending three-
quarters of a mile up and down the river
on both sides of the stream. And those
who know Mr. Calloway's energy and
business capacity, will need no assurance
that he will do all in his power to utilis
to the utmost the reserve force stored
up in Suwannee Shoals.
What all this means to Lake City and
the surrounding country is obvious, and
with the modern facilities for transmit-
ting electric power, there is no reason
why Jacksonville, only 58 miles away,

should not also share in the good results
of this latest development.
As for Lake City, itself, it was never
in better shape to take hold of a good
thing and make the most of it, than to-
When the county went dry, it was pre-
dicted by some that disaster would fol-
low. As a matter of fact, the town is
today better prepared than ever to join
in the grand march of progress and pros-
perity. The city now ha streets paved
with vitrified brick; new sewers, and bet-
ter electric light and water plants than
ever before. New houses have been erect-
eded, new citizens added, and an air of
prosperity is seen on every hand.
The action of the legislature in turning
over the buildings of the State univer-
sity to the city, for the purpose of es-
tablishing a co-educational Baptist college,
hag already done much to advance the
general interests, and a marked increase in
real estate is already noted here.
The college property has now been
transferred to the Baptists and on the

here by that denomination in commem-

Columbus, Ga., June 24.-G. Gunby Jor-
dan, president of the Georgia Immigration
Association, does not attach much impor-
tance to the annoinmement from the au-
thorities of the American Lloyd and Ham-
burg Steamship Companies to the effect
that they will not consider New Orleans
as a Southern port for the landing of Eu-
ropean immigrants to this country.
The press dispatches regarding the ac-
tion of these big transportation compan-
ies, which stated that owing to the treat-
merit of white foreigners in the South the
manufacturers could not expect the land-
ing of immigrants here, were read with
much interest by local cotton mill opera-
tors and members of the State Immigra-
President Jordan of the Eagle and
Phenix Mills and of the Georgia State
Immigration Association. when question-
ed regarding the announcement from the
steamship companies, said:
"Yes I have seen that statement, but
do not attach much importance to it.
We have been at work on that very thing
for some time and expect to continue, no
matter what anyone else does.
"We have associations in every city and
town in Georgia. who are working hard to
overcome the very conditions which are
said to be the cause of the action of
these people, and we hope to overcome any
such objection. All that is needed is the
hearty co-operation of the people of the
State to bring about a better condition of
"As I stated on my return from Eu-
rope, if we expect to get desirable immi-
grants, we must meet the wants of these
people, and we must assure them living
wages, comfortable houses to live in and
freedom from undue criticism of their pe-
culiar modes of living and of difference in
dress and manners from ours.
"We must learn to recognize the fact
that while we are yet in our third cen-
tury of existence as a people, gathered
from all the nations of the earth, these
people are the products of a thousand
years of arts, sciences and religions and
were old in all things when our country
was in an aboriginal state.
"We must overcome, by every means
possible, the false and erroneous ideas
which in many instances have been incul-
cacated in the minds of these people by
the paid agents of other sections of the
country, in which the South has been ma-
ligned to a great extent, and we must
work hard to disabuse the minds of desir-
able immigrants before they leave their
homes of such false impressions and to
this end the association of which I am
president is bending every effort, and we
ask the hearty co-operation of the press
and the people in bringing about this re-
LUMBER AND TIMBER PRODUCTS-
The director of the census announces
the following preliminary report on wood
distillation in the United States for the
calendar year ending December 31, 1906.
Statistics concerning the production and
consumption of lumber and timber pro-
ducts have heretofore been collected in con-
nection with the decennial and quinquen-
nial censuses of manufactures. To satisfy
the urgent demand for more frequent in-
formation relating to these important pro-
ducts, the Forest Service, of the Depart-
ment of Agriculture, collected statistics
pertaining to them for 1905, and for the
purpose of comparison these figures for
the industry of wood distillation are pre-
sented below. In order to avoid duplica-
tion of work, however, and insure uni-
formity of results, the preparation of the

ANOTHER RAILROAD FOR PENSA-
Pensacola, Fla., June 30.-The applica-
tion for a charter by Ibsiness men of
Pensapola for what is to be known as the
Pensacola. Alabama and Georgia Railroad
is lilieved by some in close touch with
moves of railroads to have much signifi-
cance attached. The fact that there is al-
ready projected a road running from here
to Andalusia leads many to believe that
a similar project would not be attempted
by other business men but for the fact
that they are backed by outside parties.
It is stated by some that the Central of
Georgia is behind the move, and while the
party would not name the road or divulge
the parties in the background, one of the
stockholders today made the statement
that the seventy-five miles of railroad
from Pensacola to Andalusia will be built
and that, too, within a short time. He
stated that those behind the movement
are simply to build this road, as well as
many others if they so desired, as their
capital is almost unlimited, and that they
do not fear the Louisville and Nashville
being powerful or rich enough to block
the scheme. He stated that parties re-
cently here had offered Henry McLaughlin
a price for his Pensacola and Perdido
properties, together with Perdido wharf
and his other holdings, and while the deal
has not been made negotiations are still
under way. In the event this terminus
is not secured the new road will use the
property at the foot of Ninth avenue,
where is now located thd Wright mill. Op-
tions have already been secured on other
property desired, and so quietly that none
were aware of the deals made until the
application for a charter was published.
It was not until a short time ago that
these people evinced a desire to reach Pen-
sacola, and it is said by some that the
move was made after the change in the
ownership of the Central of Georgia, that
road having heretofore refused to en-
encroach upon the territory of the Louis-
ville and Nashville.
ST. AUGUSTINE ELECTRIC LINE TO
St. Augustine, June 29.-Word has been
received here by the St. Johns Light and
Power Company from the United States
engineer's office in Jacksonville, to the
effect that instructions have been receiv-
ed from the war department in Wash-
ington for the engineers in charge of this
district to survey and lay out the right of
way for the electric railway around the
fort reservation here.
This is gratifying news to the officials
of the electric railway company and to the
people of this city, especially to those
living in the northern section, for it now
insures the trolley service being extended
to North City, the right of way around
the fort being the missing link.
It is not known just when the engineer's
office will send a man over to lay out
the right of way, hut the matter will he
attended to at an early date. The rails
for this division of the railway are now en
route to this city.
The next extension of the trolley ser-
vice here will be over to South Beach,
which the company expects to complete
during July. The rail for the island tracks
is already here and the lighter rails now
down will be taken np and used on the
division in the south end of the city.
When the right of way around the fort
is secured all obstacles will have been re-
moved and the company should and doubt-
less will make rapid progress in complet-
ing the entire trolley service here.

feetly satisfactory, hence the awarding of
this big contract.
The fact that the Merrill-Stevens Com-
pany is near to the Savannah district
and that it has all the necessary equip-
ment for keeping the vessels in repairs,
having a large floating dock sad two ma-
rine railways, is probably one reason for
the awarding of the contract to them.
SILK XADE FROM PINEAPPLE
Vice-Consul J. K. Foster writes from
Newcastle that experiments made in
Queensland with the leaves of the pine-
apple plant have shown that there is a
fber in them which may be used in the
production of a useful kind of silky cloth.
As to the particulars, he adds:
"The fiber experimented upon has sim-
ply been obtained by the soaking of the
leaves until the outer covering could be
easily removed and the soft, jellylike
substances around the fiber pressed away.
The fiber when dried has been found to
be of fine texture and of good staple and
strength. Some of it has been exhibited
at Rockhampton and a sample has also
been placed in the hands of a firm of
ramie dealers and spinners to discover its
market value. There is a great demand
for all kinds of fiber, and this may be
found to be a valuable one. Possibly
there is here the utiliztion of a waste
product. The leaves of this ground fruit
have ever been destroyed as worthless,
but if the fiber can be used it will be an
additional source of profit to the pineap-
ple growers. The process of extracting
the fiber from the leaves need not be an
expensive one, and if some new kind of
silky material can be obtained it will pro-
duce no small amount of wealth. Pine-
apple silk may become the fashion. It will
be worth while to make further experi-

DISCOVERY or PHOSPHATE IN FLOR-
(Ooatinued from page 3.)
have impressed Mr. Dunn with the great
importance of the discovery had not the
chemist fortunately added in the footnote:
"This discovery is as valuable as a goki
mine, and if it exists in quantities you
had better secure the property at once."
This was as a coal of fire on a gopher's
back, and in the vernacular of the streets,
Mr. Dunn "got a move on him" and se-
cured options on properties and afterwards
formed what is now known as the Dun-
nelkm Phosphate Company.
In a little while the whole State became
a blaze of excitement, and prospectors
flooded the woods in all directions.
The -history of phosphate mining in
Florida since that time is so familiar it
is not necessary to repeat here. But
Mr. Vogt's discovery produced a revolu-
tion in Florida, and millions and millions
of dollars have been added to its resources
since. Many fortunes have been made
and lost in phosphate, and the business
is now controlled by a few large compa-
nies, and the prices have become fixed and
JACKSON LUMBR COMPANY SUBS.
Penacoa, Fla., July 2.-The Jackson
Lumber Company, one of the largest pro-
ducers of lumber in the South, has brought
suit before the Interstate Commerce Com-
mission against the Louisville and Nash-
ville, Central of Georgia and nine other
Railroads for *$6,000 alleged to have been
collected as excess freight by these roads
on shipments of lumber from the plant at
Loekhart, Ala. The suit is based on
the raise in June of 1903, of 2 cents per
hundred pounds on all freights handled
north of the Ohio river, which the com-
pany alleges is a discrimination, inas-
much as ears of lumber for points within
a short distance of the Ohio river were not
subject to this additional two cents per
hundred pounds, while for a few miles
north the company was compelled to pay
the 2 cents per hundred pounds addition-
al. though handled Iy the same railway.
Col. W. W. Flournoy, chief counsel of the
company today returned from Washington,
where he presented the claim of the com-
pany, and expects to return within a few
weeks when the various railroads will
make answer to the complaint. The com-
plaint is the first of its nature to be tak-
en before the commission from Florida,
and the outcome will be watched with
much interest by other lumber manufac-
turers in this section,'who, during the pe-
riod dating from the advance in rates have
shipped large quantities of lumber to
points north of the Ohio.

TAMPA WATER CASE.
Judge James W. Locke, in the United
States circuit court, has handed down a
decision making permanent the tempora-
ry injunction heretofore issued in the case
of the Tampa Waterworks Company vs.
the City of Tampa.
This injunction perpetually restrains the
city from enforcing the rates set up in one
of its ordinances, and marks a complete
victory for the waterworks company.
The case is one of long standing, hav-
ing been before the United States courts,
in one form or another, for more than
Last Monday is came up on the petition
of the waterworks company to make per-
manent the injunction heretofore issued,
and the law points involved were argued
at length by counsel for both complainant
and respondent. A great mass of evidence
was submitted though no witnesses were
put on the stand.
Judge Locke took the matter under ad-
visement and yesterday handed down his
decision, deciding in favor of the conten-
tions of the waterworks company.
