SThinking people have, during the last few weeks, been
enabled to see many bright spots in the financial outlook
that heretofore were greatly obscured. Moneyed men in
the money centers of the country seem to be taking a better .'
view of the situation, the holiday spirit has put more money
in circulation, as the great mass of people, after vainly
endeavoring to reason out the why of e late money
tightness, have evidently decided that it's all artificial and
artificially tight money can't knock out the generous
Christmas spirit of a country like ours. A
The South especially is showing signs of better times
coming, almost here in fact. 1906 is, we believe, going to
be one of our best years.

South Atlantic Conditions in the
Yellow Pine Trade.
Savannah, Ga.-T'hoh it is very evi-
dent that the larger byers of the North
sad East, aad for that matter, of Europe
also, are hoping of in anticipation of
lower pries yet in the lumber markets,
It i bedomidg just t evident that the
lumber of the South-brokers, whole-
salr and milmm alike-d not eiter-
tain this proposition favorably and rre
taking deisive steps to prevent the poe-
sibility of any such occurrence.
Sime the last report the city has been
veritably overrun with the smaller mill-
men, either seeking orders or concluding
their buslnes affairs prior to shutting
down, and a careful study of the situa-
tion as it is today forces the conclusion
that it is now rapidly coming to a show-
dow between the buyers of the world,
who are seeking to free pries yet lower
by their long eontined absence fr.m the
market, and the interior millmen, who de-
lare emphatically that they will not fur-
ther accept the present ridiculously low
values, but will shut down until there is
ddme improvement hi preference.
Of course it is a well-known fact that
the millmem themselves have the remedy
for these onditions at and. They ean
shut down, stop production, prevent over-
production, amu thereby force buyers to
pay better prices when forced to buy.
Heretofore the smaller mills could not
be prevailed on to quit. They have here-
tofore cut on full time and taken the best
price they could get, until "May the dev-
il take the hindmost," seems a fitting par-
During the past two weeks, however,
almost every country mill operator who
Struck the ity was seen, sad in prati-
cally 9 eases out of 100, their statements
were the same: "We will sht down un-
til prices improve" Without a previous
understanding, the mill operators have
reached the eomlusio that in shutting
down es the only remedy, and they have
fully decided to do it as a matter of corn-
mn seme and self-preervation
To date, a careafl canvas of the situs-
tion shows that approximately 05 per cent
of the total number of mills in Gewwga,
Florida aad South Carolina have either al-
ready shut down or are preparing to do
so, which policy, if persisted in, the total
will soon be increased to 75 or possibly
90 per eet. This, of course, forestalls
any possibility of overproduction, and it
is quite sure that "bargains in lumber, for
which, by the way, a prominent broker of
SLiverpool recently came all the way to
Savannah to secure, will be unheard oi.
Of course European requirements are
difereat from those for domestic trade.
A buyer, however, comes to this port and
makes the frank statement that his "cli-
eats in Europe bad been watching the
finaaeal dioealties in the states with a
great deal of interest and were ex peting
to get sa eal bargalua in lumber as
the result," shows the tendency to hold
off until still lower prices, which produ-
cers are going to block.
Another very noticeable condition is
that the holders of timberlands hereto-
fore refusing to sell at any price have
now decided to "loosen up" on their hold-
ings, and as a result the millman has se-
cured bargains in desirable timber.
Several millmen, here during the past
ten days, stated that they had just pur-
chased desirable timber options, but in
every case they stated positively that they
would not cut a foot of timber until
better conditions in the general market
should warrant it. This shows that while
the interior millman has secured bargains,
he does not intend that the consumer shall
reap the benefit.
C. N. Paynter, of Liverpool, represent-
ing the brokerage frm of Alfred Doebell,
of that city, was here several days ago,
and during an interview at the DeSoto
Hotel with Mesrs. Joseph Hilton and J.
K. Clarke, he made the statement abive
Both gentlemen with whom Mr. Payn-
ter was talking assured him that there
was slim possibilities of securing any
"real bargains" in lumber just at this
time, since over 60 per cent of the mills
of this section had shut down, and he
left Savannah without securing a contract.
Of course, it is probable that Mr. Payn-
ter was really seeking what is popularly
called "larien cut" material, which is said
to be simply the tree felled and squared
up for export. There is reported to be
considerable of this rafted material at
Darien at this time; still, at the same
time, it is hardly probable that the own-
ers would be shortsighted enough to close
contracts at a sacrifice.
Export requirements and domestic eon-
ditions alike show the important of pru-
dence ypoif the part of the producers,
which it is believed will obtain. It also
appears that the smaller millmen have
learned a lesson and will shut down until
there is improvement.
Speaking of general trade conditions, a
prominent wholesaler said yesterday:
"Prices in my opinion are as low as
they can possibly go. Even if there was
an absolute cessation in the demand, it
would not be possible for values to go
any lower, for the general stoppage of
the mills would, of course, prevent any
"I believe that with the advent of the
new year we are to witness a revival of
the general activity in lumber trade con-
ditions, and I am convinced that the small
mills have shut down until that time.
several inquiries for railroad requirements
on the market, and this in itself is a
"If any one in the trade wants to se-
cure lumber at prices lower than they
will be again in many a long day, he had
better make his purchases rit now."

An Authority Says It Will Be More Pro-
nounced Than Ever.
Certainly Mr. E. H. Harriman is doing
what he can to atone for some of his past
sins. He is now letting himself be seen
in the role of a distinct and vigorous
optimist. That being the case, we may
well forgive him for his share in bringing
about that unquestioned loss of confidence
and distrust of great corporations that
has been a part of the past year's depres-
sion in stocks.
But now Harriman is going about the
country declaring his faith in the things
that be and his rosy confidence in the
things that are to be and, as he is a
man of considerable acumen and more or
less influence among financiers, spite of
the knocks he has received, I am willing

them off, the situation looked darker than

improvement and the hopeful signs, I felt
warranted in putting most of the dis-

EUCALYPTUS TREES IN FLORIDA.
During the past few years the blue
gum tree, one of the Australian eucalyp-
tus, has been planted in parts of south-
ern Florida and has thrived to such a
degree as to assure good results from
plantings of that species in the southern
section of the peninsula. The successful
plantings were made in low sandy soils
near Cape Claaveral, about Fort Myers,
and elsewhere. The water level is usually
less than six feet below the surface, and
the trees ind no difficulty in obtaining all
the moisture needed.
The blue gum and other eucalypts were
brought to California from Apstralia
many years ago, and have shown remark-
able growth in the warm climate and
friendly soils of the Pacific coast. It be-
comes a trunk in a few years when con-
ditions are favorable, but it cannot with-
stand severe frost and for that reason it

areas of the United States. Much atten-
tim is being given to it in California, and
hundreds of thousands of trees were plant-
ead the past year. Railroads use it for
ties and are planting large tracts for that
purpose. It has many uses--fuel, posts,
les ad lumber. No tree grows with

Carnegie n Currency.
Mr. Speyer then introduced Andrew Car-
negie, who said, in prt:
'No system of currency will enable us
to escape seasons of depression, failures
and losses. Prosperity is bound to stretch
the line beyond the breaking point, and
dull times are needed to restore them;
and just in proportion as the percentage
of the total legitimate business grows
smaller to that of the speculation and
gambling upon margins, financial disas-
ters will increase in number and severity.
Let us therefore dismiss all panaceas for
panics such as we have just experienced,
and which were due several years ago,
but delayed by an unequaled succession
of food crops and demands for our crops
abroad. The point that demands atten-
tion is that our banking system is unlike
that of other countries. I agree thorough-
ly with those, however, who believe that
'the present is not the time to urge the
complete change we need.
The Curreacy Question. -
"The currency question will never down _
until it is founded upon correct principles.
If there be anything established, it is
that it should be based upon the assets,
vix.: Trade bills, which expand and con-
tract as business does, the reserve being
in gold. But this does not seem to be
the proper time to urge so great a change 1
as this implies. Our first effort should e
to get legislation turned from the wrong 6
to the right path by introducing to some
extent asset currency. As the people see
the advantages of this system, we may 4
hope to enlarge its use and gradually j
abandon bond security and in due time j
to begin the substitution of gold, real
value for our reserve, instead of govern- e
meat evidences of debt, thus giving us the e*
most profitable and serviceable form of
Making, as abundantly proved by the ex-
perience of other countries. No central *
bank is necessary to effect a cure, but *
only the cushion elasticity, which the 4
Mr. Carnegie deviated from his set
speech to say he favored the passage of a

Did you ever stop to think what a worthless thing a package of rent receipts is Did
you ever stop to thing that fully half of the tenant houses have been paid for, sometimes many
time over, by the renters, and yet the landlord is more disposed to advance than to decrease
the monthly rent account ? Did you ever stop to think that your rents could buy you a home
-a place that yould be your own, a comfort to you and yours now and a blessing in the days
to come Did you ever cultivate the saving habit Did you ever stop to think that your sur-
plus savings could earn you a good interest and provide a home purchasing fund for you at

MATCH MAiKRM ANXIOUS.
Dero tg spp ly of Timber Is Already
It is perhaps more characteristic of
Americans than of any other people to
hold small things in contempt, forgetting
that "little drops of water, little grains of
sand constitute the planet we inhabit.
A math is a small and insignificant affair,
yet multiplied as it has been in this coun-
try and the rest of the civilized world it
has been one of the most potential agents
of modern material development. It has
come into use at a late day in the world's
history. There are many living among
us still who can remember when the flint
amd tinder were the regular means of
starting a fresh fire, and the old one was
artfully preserved by burying the em-
bers night after night to be revived in
the morning. It is eighty years ago the
prespt year that the lucifer match, the
at genuine friction match, was invented,
aad evea that required an attachment of
beat sandpaper to produce the desired re-
It is hard for the present generation to
realize the inconveniences from which the
friction match emancipated their ances-
tos. The manufacture of this product
has become a great and even a somewhat
diversified industry, because every section
seems to have matches peculiar to itself.
A 4ma who has been a commercial trav-
eler for many years tells us that if he
were taken up and carried to any point
ef of the Alleghenies he could tell with-
ia a hundred miles of where he was by
the matches he should find in use. There
is also a national pride in matches. A
rect mayor of Manchester, Lhglaud,
vistig friends in Boston a few days ago,
spije very highly of our "abominable
mate," and declared that he did not
see hLow a high-spirited, independent and
enterprising people like ourselves put up
The American people, however, appear
to be fairly well contented with the home
product, else they would not buy and con-
sume so many with comparatively so lit-
tie grumbling. They use up about 700,-
000,000,000 a year, or about half of all
that are manufactured in the world.
Thre are hundreds of factories scattered
ovr the country, one plant on the Pa-
ee Coast covering 240 acres and operat-
ian over thirty miles of railroad, over
which is carried to it daily 200,000 feet of
sugar pine and yellow pine logs for the
math machines. Inferior lumber will not
do. It must be straight grained and free
from knots and carefully treated in ad-
dition. The by-product goes into larger
things. The factory on the Paefic Coast
referred to turns out as this by-product
a thousand doors and 800 window sashes
daily. In a single year one match com-
pany in the lake region cut e2,000000o,
board feet of pne, though that was in-
tended for more than a year's product.
It is no wonder, when we consider these
figures, that the matchmakers are becom-
ing anxious. And that is true in other
countries as well as our own. In Ger-
many and France there is a movement to
have forests planted just for match tim-
ber, and we may soon face a famine in
match wood in this country, for not all
kinds can be used for that purpose. It
may also happen that invention may de-
velop something that will take the place
of matches. tl is not probable that the
limit of progress has been reached in the
means of producing fire at need. There is
no Promethean penalty for the man who
shall make the discovery, but rather wel-
come and reward by his eager fellowmen.
FACTS FROM FLONATON.
Flomaton, Ala., Dec. 18, 1901.
industrial Record, Jacksonville, Fla.
Gentlemen-In accordance with your re-
quest will give you a few remarks con-
cerning operators and conditions general-
ly in my territory. Operators here who
are cutting boxes are paying at present
lyc. per box, with the general under-
standing among themselves to reduce the
box cut, also the price of cutting to 141
cents, beginning not later than January;
as suggested by the Turpentine Operators'
Association, at a recent meeting. Mind
you, there are but a few in mysection
who are cutting any boxes at all, and the
"slogan" here is to curtail the output
another season. This is the only man-
ner by which we can expect for naval
stores to command anything like a fair
The buying of turpentine places is very
inactive, owing to the lack of inducement
on the part of the factors to the prospec-
tive purchasers. The tightness of money
and the depression in the prices of naval
stores has forced some very fine proposi-
tions on the market. The Southern Real
Estate and Investment Co., of this place,
have on hand a great many of these prop-
ositions and are making some few sales.
Yours very truly,
F. A. GRAHAM.

The following wedding announcement
was received in Jacksonville this week:
Mr. and Mrs. John Leysath
announce the marriage of their
Mr. Robertson Tanner Arnold,
on Wednesday, December 18, 1907,
North, S. C.
The wedding was a beautiful house
wedding and the number of guests was
limited to about thirty-five of the most
intimate friends of the bride.
The best man was Mr. John S. Arnold,
Jr., who went on from Jacksonville for the
wedding, returning here Wednesday night.
Mrs. Arnold is a young woman of
charming and vivacious manner, and will
be a pleasing addition to the young so-
ciety circles of Jacksonville.
Mr. Arnold has a large circle of friends
in Jacksonville and throughout the State.
He is the capable advertising manager of

Few of the members of the association

J. L. Philips, of Thomasville, Ga., pro-

S. L chapman representing the Cum-
mer Lumber Company of Jacksonville,
moved that if any further action was to
be taken it be postponed to a future meet-

notified in advance so that all parties in-
terested could have a voice.
All this happened at the morning ses-
sion of the association. Capt. H. H. Tuit,
president, was detained from the chair.
It being learned that he would appear at
the afternoon session it was decided to
postpone any action until he arrived.
At the afternoon session of the asso-

"M WEEKLY WNDURTSTRI RECORD.
The Operators Forum.
Windor, S C., Dee. 18, 1901.
llitor Industrial Record:
Mhat is the matter with naval stores?
According to the statement of Mr. Toomer,
the president of the Turpentine Producers'
Association, at the meeting held at Jack-
sonville on November 8th last, the pro-
ductiao of turpentine and rosin was 12
per cent less in 1907 than in the year
previous, and surely the ,ossumption has
But it seems the naval stores business
is controled by one concern, that is, S. P.
Shatter, or the American Naval Stores
Company, or the Standard Oil Company.
However it matters not what name you
give it, as you know "a rose by any other
name smells just as sweet," and this con-
orn, no matter what name it sails under,
appears just a odious.
I have my doubts about the Standard
Oil Co. being identical with the American
Naval Stores Co., because the Standard
Oil Co., with all its faults allows the pro-
duoer to live by paying fair prices for the
rude product, and they also pay fair
wages to their employes, and in fact
have given opportunities to many of its
trusted employees to enrich themselves,
whilst this concern, the American Naval
Stores C., apparently wants the earth and
all there is in it-whilst the Standard Oil
Co. makes its dividends out of the con-
sumer and allows the producer and lab-
rer to live, this institution apparently
wants to take its rake-off out of the pro-
ducer and the poor laboring man.
There have been and are now persistent
effort being made by many factors to
have operators reduce the price of labor.
Of course, it is always well to reduce ex-
pee ift.pomible, but the question is, can
this be done to any great extent, if at all.
As long as cotton sells above ten cents
per pound there will be a demand for
farm labor, and you cannot reduce the
price of turpentine labor when there is
a scarcity of it for farming purposes at
prices prevailing now.
But whilst these factors insist on reduc-
ing the price of labor, there is no reduc-
tion in the cost of supplies. Feed, gro-
ceries, spirits barrels, turpentine tools
and many other necessaries to the produc-
tion of turpentine remain as high as ever.
Freight, storage insurance, inspection,
commission and all the numerous charges
incidental to the business remain the
same, and I doubt whether any of the
above mentioned articles will decline in
'he consumer paid an average of oc.
per gallon for spirits the last three years,
and rosins sold at $4.00 to $7.00 per com-
mercial barrel, according to grade. Way,
then, this sudden drop of 40 per cent in
the price of naval stores, in the face of
all other commodities holding their price?
As far as I can see no new factor has en-
tered into the naval stores business as a
substitute for spirits or rosins. Turpen-
tine timber is becoming scarcer daily.
There can only be one solution to this
state of affairs, which is, that some pro-
ducers had the audacity to hold spirits
for higher prices against the wishes of
the powers in control, and a squeezing
out process is now in operation.
Surely naval stores cannot be produced
profitably at present prices, and must in
the course of time necessarily advance to
some reasonable and equitable figure, or
production must stop. But in the mean-
time the poor producer who depends on
the factor for advances to carry on his
business, will be frozen out, and the par-
ties who own millions of acres of tur-
pentine timber will be masters of the sit-
As I understand it the American Naval
Stores Co. are the only buyers of conse-
quence in the market, and all the factors
COMPARATIVE MARKET Rrwurz
The price of spirits declined again this week, dosing at 42c. on friday
at Savannah, with nothing doing at Jacksonville. The prices of common rosins
varied slightly during the week both here and at Savannah but the week's
closing prices were practically the same as for last week.

to the business at all You ship your
product to the factor, he goes into the ad-
joining office and sells it to the American
Naval Stores Co., and charges 21/, per
cent for doing so. Why not sell direct to
the only buyer
Now the producers of oil are in much
better position. They sell to the Stand-
ard Oil Co. direct. They pay no commis-
sion or insurance and the buyer carries
the oil for them free of storage for thirty
days. Is there any way for the turpen-
tine producers to better their condition?
If so, it is about time to act.

Make Money in Jacksonville Real Estate
TEN DOLLARS STARTS YOU
E HAVE DECIDED TO PLACE ON SALE a Special Fall Com-
bination of Investment Jacksonville Real Estate that will at once ap-
peal to every man and woman who can place as much as $10 a month in a
real estate savings account. The combination at the low price made is just
as sure to bring a fifty to one hundred per cent profit as Jacksonville is sure to
grow. It takes in three of the most rapidly developing sections of Jackson-
ville. It "corners"' the situation and makes the small investor absolutely sure
of his profits. By buying three lots in the Special Fall combination the in-
vestor can save $150 on the present selling prices. The three lots (any choice
from plats) in this combination, and their present selling prices follow :
Murray Hill Height, approached by beautiful Highway
avenue, paved, or from St. Johns drive, paved, near the
new milliondollar shops of the Seaboard Air Line Bail-
way, and a subdivision that is all white, and extremely
popular, present selling price
Pin Crest Park, near the corner of Myrtle avenue and
ing road, in front of the Rdward Waters College site
and adjacent to more new cottages than any other section
of Jacakonville, present selling price
East Grand Park, approached by beautiful Kings road a
-%tnlmt suburb, high-.la, dean, strictly white and
rapidly developing, present selling price
We will sell these combinae-
tions, limited number, and
until otherwise advised, for
The present selling prices of these lots make a total of $700. They can
be bought only in these combinations at the phenomenally low rate of $650,
and on the easy terms of $10 cash and $10 a month without interest or taxes.
Only a limited number of these combinations will be sold. Therefore, ACT QUICK.
Leave the selection to us and we will give you absolutely the best choice unsold, gn.uPnteeing
you at least one corner out of the three lots. We issue a straight contract for deed. Our title
are absolutely perfect. We guarantee every lot high and dry.
PLACE 8AVINGS IN JACKSONVILLE DIRT.
Jacksonville, the gateway to Florida, is the most rapidly growing city in all the South,
perhaps in the country. Devastated by fire six years ago, it is today a city of over fifty thou-
sand people and growing at a rate that is phenomenal. It is a cosmopolitan city-made up
of a fine citizenry from all sections of the world. It is one of the cleanest, healthiest, most
beautiful cities of its size in America. It is a city of magnificent homes, churches, school. It
is a city with a great future. Ships from its harbor reach every port of the world. Great
trunk railway lines connect the four corners of the United States. It is a city of unprece-
dented opportunities for safe, sound, profitable real estate investments. It has never had a
boom. It wants none. The rapidly increasing values follow natural causes. The city is
growing so rapidly the suburbs are fast becoming the centers of business and residential ae-
tivities. Real estate values in the city alone increased over a million last year-the suburbs
increased in a greater proportion.
LOOK US UP!
The Jacksonville Development Co. has a capital stock of $500,000 and assets of $800,000.
Its officers and directors are among the leading bankers and business men of the South. As to
our reliability and financial standing, ask the banks.
JACKSONVILLE, DEVELOPMENT CO.,
N. B.-We publish on the 1st and 15th of each month The Investors' Guide. If you are in-
terested in real estate and desire to place your surplus savings in the safest and most profit-
able security on earth, tell us to send this paper to you a few months FREE.

TO INVESTIGATE ALLEGED TURPEN-
Wasington, Dec. 21.-The so-called na-
val stores trust, especially with reference
to the market at Savannah and Jackson-
ville, and the alleged combination of cot-
ton bidders to manipulate and control the
pies of cotton, will be investigated by
the government, if the resolution intro-
desed by Mr. Edwards of the First Dis-
trict Is passed by Congress.
He proposes to urge the consideration
of the resolution immediately after the
holidays, and has the assurance of support
from many sources.
It has been charged that the naval
tores of the country are controlled by a
trut, and that the price of turpentine and
by-products are fixed by the combination
to the material loss of people interested
in the production.
The same charge, in substance, is made
against cotton buyers, whom, it is alleged,
have entered into a pool or agreement,
whereby the prices are
Edwards' resolution calls upon the De-
partment of Commerce and Labor to in-
stitute an investigation, and if the facts
warrant the allegations to tur the evi-
dence over to the Department of Justice
for Criminal Prosecutions.
NEW LOCOMOTIVES FOR EAST COAST
The Florida East Coast Railway is ex-
pecting daily ten new locomotives, costing
F:00,005. They weigh each about 190,000
pounds, and tenders 121,000. They are to
be used this winter in carrying freight
and passengers from Jacksonville to all
points on the road to the farthest south-
The immense weight of the new equip-
ment is evidence of the substantial con-
struction of the road, particularly the new
portion south of Miami.
Eight locomotive tenders have a carry-
ing capacity of ten tons of coal and
6,000 gallons of water. They have eight
driving wheels. Two for switching pur-
poses, are only six wheelers, and their
carrying capacity is less.
