Again we urge producers to go slow-act
conservatively, and to shape their operations
as to get the best possible results from pre-
sent-day conditions. The RECORD is ad-
vised of instances where operators are not
acting conservatively. Some are wild on
labor prices. Others are not practicing the
same general economy that should be practiced
in any successful business operation. Every
operator should see to it that whatever his

THE MIGHTY HAS FALLEN
s by Which Charles W. Morse Tumbled Down
l Flights of Financial Ladders and Struck
the Bottom With a Dull Thud.
From the New York American of Thurs-
day we gather the following regarding
the downfall of one of the great "Napol-
ems of Finance," who is particularly well
known in the South, first attracting noto-
riety in Atlanta by the Morse-Dodge di-
vorce case, and later attracting no little
attention in Jacksonville by having been
at the head of the attempted steamship
Arust that recently took over the Clyde
and Mallory lines:
The charges of speculation in ice and
treated banking came home to roost on
the king promoter yesterday morning
when Charles W. Morse was arraigned in
the Federal Court on an indictment speci-
fying twenty-nine violations of the Nat-
ional Banking Act.
Indicted jointly with Morse was Alfred
H. Curtis, former president of the Nation-
al Bank of North America, who blindly
did Morse's bidding, even, it is alleged, to
falsifying reports to the Treasury Depart-
ment and permitting enormous overdrafts.
If the Department of Justice elects to
press each and every charge and secures
convictions, both men might be sentenced
to prison for the rest of their lives. In
addition to the prison punishment enor-
mous Inea cma be exacted under the law.
Desires to Try Them Jointly.
United States District ,Attorney Stin-
an desires to try both Morse and Curtis
at the same time. It is not likely that all
of the counts will be pressed, the Govern-
ment electing several on which to go be-
fore the jury.
There was no sensational arrest in th'e
-ease of either of the indicted bankers.
Their attorneys produced them before
Judge Hough at the appointed hour. They
pleaded not guilty and were given two
weeks in which to change their plea if
they so desire. Morse was held in $30,000
ball and Curtis in $10,000, which was fur-
"I see I am to be the goat again," was
Morse's sarcastic comment when he noted
the difference in the amount of bail re-
Of the twenty-nine counts in the indict-
ment, eleven are for conspiracy and eigh-
teen for false entry. Among the latter
are numerous overdrafts by Charles W.
Morse, made in the exciting week of the
recent bank paunl when he was trying to
keep his financial schemes afoat.
Midsummr Ice Speculation.
The indictment, when shorn of legal
verbiage, throws much additional light on
the speculation in ice which caused the
poor of New York so much summer suf-
fering, while Tammany officeholders and
politicians made fortunes. The names of
John F. Carroll appears several times in
the indictment, as does that of Katherine
T. Gelshennen (now Mrs. Braker), whose
first husband was a close personal friend
of Charles W. Morse. They sold American
Ice stock to the bank, but the crime lies
on the bank officials for buying the stock.
The Federal Grand Jury, which was dis-
charged on Tuesday, have worked for
weeks over this indictment. They called
numerous witnesses and examined the
books of the bank. When ready, the
document was turned over to Oliver C.
Pagan, of Washington, the indictment ex-
pert of the Department of Justice. He has
a reputation of drawing indictments that
cannot be thrown out because of techni-
calities and he worked for several weeks
getting this one against Morse and Curtis
It was the general opinion of financiers
yesterday that Morse has reached the
most ticklish stage of his fight to re-estab-
lish himself. The strength of the indict-
ment was recognized by every attorney
who read it yesterday, and they say he
will have a hard time defending himself
before a Federal jury.
Few Witnes the Arraignment.
The indicted bankers were called before
Judge Hough yesterday morning. There
were few spectators in court. Mr. Morse
was there with his attorney, James Gifford,
of the firm of Hobbs & Gifford. Mr. Cur-
tis was accompanied by former Judge W.
M. K. Oloott, Mrs. Curtis and her sister,
Mrs. William Carroll. The latter, it was
explained, is no relation of John F. Car-
Neither of the defendants showed any
emotion when called to plead. Their at-
torneys answered "Not guilty" for each
and asked thirty days in which to take ex-
ception to the indictment or make other
pleadings. Judge Hough granted two
weeks for this purpose.
United States District Attorney Henry
L. Stimson asked that bail be fixed, de-
manding $30,000 for Mr. Morse and $10,-
000 for Mr. Curtis.
"Is not the defendant, Morse, already
under heavy bail in the State courts?"
asked Judge Hough.
"I certainly am," replied Morse, with a
After considering the matter for a mo-
ment, Judge Hough set the bail at the
amount requested. The bankers then
went before Commissioner Shields. The
Massachusetts Bonding & Insurance Com-
pany stood for Mr. Morse and Mrs. Carroll
offered No. 38 Riverside Drive as security
for Mr. Curtis.
Saddled Pet Schemes on Bank.
The crimes charged in the indictment
can be divided into three general sub-
divisions. The first group involves the
purchase of capital stock in the American
Ice Company, the Cuban Mail Steamship
Company and the Consolidated Steamship
Company for speculative purposes. Morse
was the moving spirit in all of these con-
cerns, and the funds of the bank were in-
vested to aid his speculative moves.
In the American Ice deals he not only
sold his own stock to the bank, but, as
before said, had President Curtis buy the
stock of John F. Carroll, who was then
a close friend, and of Mrs. Gelshennen.
That the bank actually profited in all of
these deals is no excuse, as stock pur-
chases are expressly prohibited by the
National Banking Act.
A simple expedient was used to cover
up these illegal deals on the books of the
bank. "Dummy" loans were made to irre-
sponsible persons who were in Morse's
control. The bank would advance the
money on a note, buy the stock and place
it as security for the note. There is no
indication that any of the dummies ever
received any of the money. When the*
stock was finally sold it was entered a
though the notes had been sold. In simi-
lar fashion the bank traded in its own
stock and in the stock of other banks
which Morse controlled.
A Girl Among the "Dummiba.
Among the "dummies" mentioned in the
indictment are Miss K. A. Wilson, a young
woman who was once Morse's private sec-
retary; Leslie E. Whiting, a broker's
clerk; Primrose & Braun, Morse's brokers,
and E. B. Wire, the cashier of the Nation-
al Bank of North America. The deal in
which Mr. Wire figured was more oompli-
cated, as it involved a lean of 4M11
from the Knickerbocker Trust Omjp- y.
The second series of eri as allrs is
based upon the illog stock spenlatio-a
of the bank. It was nmsary to make
false entries on the books ad in the
monthly reports to the Omapirclr of
the Curreney. These were mde as mad
and form the subject matter of a number

Working Agrm t far Refd of Over-
CMhrge is Reace-Railreab to
Pay the Court Costs.
Atlanta, Ga.-The shoal of injunction
suits against the railroads comprising the
Southeastern Freight Association to pre-
vent the collection of a 2-vent overcharge
in the lumber freight rates to points north
of the Ohio river have come to an end.
Wimbish, Watkins & Ellie the law firm
of Atlanta, which represents the lumber
shippers, has come to an agreement with
representative of the various railroad
lines whereby all overcharge claims will
be collected and the increased rate will be
discontinued. There is one exception:
the Central of Georgia railroad has de-
clined to take off the rates from eastern
Alabama or to pay claims arising on ship-
ments from that territory. Contentions
concerning this territory must be litigated
with the Central of Georgia.
It was the refusal of the railroads to
recognize the rights of the independent
lumber shippers to participate in the ben-
efits of the decision of the United States
Supreme Oaurt in the Tift case which re-
sulted in many injunction suits. The
United States Supreme Court decided
that not only was the 2-cent overcharge
illegal but that the parties to the Tift
ease had a right to collect the amount
of these overcharges back to the time
when it was put in effect by the railroads
--June 22, 190.
Nearly a million dollars is involved in
these claims and the railroads have at last
signified their willingness to settle with
the shippers whether they be parties to
the Tift ease or not.
The agreement was reached last week
following a lengthy conference between
Wimbish, Watkins & Elis and the coun-
sel of the various roads. The roads rep-
resented by counsel in this conference
were: The Southern, the Louisville &
Nashville, the Nashville, Chattanooga &
St. Louis, the Seaboard Air Line, the At-
lantic Coast Line, the Central of Georgia,
the Georgia Southern and Florida and con-
necting lines. The following is a copy of
the agreement reached:
First. The railway companies shall
pay in cash costs accrued in the Tift case,
including interventions therein, and in the
Kaul, Phillips and Camp cases, including
the master's fee, but not including an.'
attorneys' fees. The railway companies
are also to pay future costs that may
accrue excepting in those cases where we

panies desire to contest on their merits.

tension of time will be agreed upon.

GENERAL PROSPERITY RETURNrING.
The Industrial Record believes in opti-
mism. It hates the pessimist. If times
ae bad we an find a remedy quicker with
a smile than we can with a growl. Last
October there was precipitated in this
country a little financial flurry-one
Clhrlea W. Mrse and his associates
bringing it about by too much frenzied
flnaning. This flurry has passed. Some
of the banks are using the opportunity
to build up their reserves, and continue
panic talk, but in reality, so far as the
country generally is concerned, it is now
merely a memory. Perhaps the most
forcible induction of this yet seen was
the sale this week of New York bonds.
As an illustration, the following figures:
Highest prie offered last month for
4% per cent New York City
boMds .......................... 10&000
Highest prie offered this week for
New York State beds .........109.000
This shows quite a difference in just one
month. Of course so far as the securities
behind the bonds the city bonds, offered a
month ago, were just as amply secured
as the State bonds offered this week. The
difference in price, a great difference when
the interest is considered, is due entirely
to the present easier condition of the
me- y market.
TO ALL RECORD READERS:
The Postoffice Department, by a recent ruling, prohibits publishers from
sending papers on the credit system. It must be paid for in advance. Of
course, we need the money and expect every man who reads the Industrial
Record to pay for it, but remember-this is Uncle Sam's ruling, not ours.
There are lots of Record subscribers who are in arrears and who want to read
the paper another year. Of course they do; they know the Record, they ap-
preciate its value. These subscribers are as good as gold and if they should
get in arrears for ten years they would some day enclose their check for $30
and with bushels of good wishes. Ordinarily that would satisfy us-but!
That is the word, just plain "but." "Man proposes," but in this case Uncle
Sam "disposes." We would, "but" we can't. We have no alternative. Unless
the Record is paid for, of course it must be stopped. Both you and I would
In all seriousness, if you owe the Record for past subscriptions please
send your check covering $3 for one year in advance. If you have paid up all
back subscription dues and you want to continue to read the Record, then
send check for $3 for one year in advance. If you are getting the Record and
have never paid for it, send your check; if you are not a subscriber, do not
delay the matter longer but send your subscription today.
With my kindest regards for all of you.

The Naval Stores Situation As Viewed By
a South Carolina Producer.
The Record produces below a letter from
a South Carolina producer that will be
read with general interest. The Record
opens its columns to a fair, free and
friendly discussion of all issues involved
in the naval stores industry. In this case
we agree with a great deal that our cor-
respondent says. With a great deal we
do not agree. We shall refer specifically
next week to this letter and perhaps make
some comments on the same. The letter
from Mr. Kline follows:
Windsor, S. C., March 4, 190&
Editor Industrial Record, Jacksonville, Fla.
Dear Sir-Permit me to use a few lines
of your valuable paper to give my views
regarding the present naval stores situa-
There appears to be a constant agita
tion by factors and also your paper to re-
duce the price of labor, just as if that
makes all the difference in the production
of naval stores, when in fact the small
reduction possible in the price of labor
cuts a very small figure in the expense
Every article used in the production of
naval stores apparently remains at the
price it was when turpentine and rosin
sold 40 per cent higher than now. Corn,
oats, hay, and other feed are virtually the
same price as last year. Spirit barrels,
casks, pullers, glue, cotton batting and
all other necessaries remain the same
price, as also freight sorage, inspection,
insurance and commission, which latter is
still 2%/, per cent., although slightly less
because of the lower price.
The only commodity which shows a
marked decline is turpentine and rosin.
I see by yesterday's Savannah paper that
spirits are quoted at 49 cents per gallon
against 72% cents same date last year
and low grade rosins at $3.30 per commer-
cial barrel against $4.20 per barrel last
year. Figuring 55 gallons of spirits and
five commercial barrels of rosin to a charge
of 51 barrels of gum would give results
Spirits ............ $39.74
Rosin ............. 21.00
Less freight, storage,
tion, commission. 4.98
Leaving ........... U55.76
A difference of over 40 per cent. How
much can the producer regain by reducing
the price of labor? It is an old adage
that there is reason in all things, but
there appears to be no reason for this
great decline in prices of naval stores, ex-
cept flagrant manipulations of the mar-
The production of 1907 is estimated by
conservative people thoroughly conversant
with the business at less than 1906. I
see that the exports from Savannah since
April 1st, 1907, are as follows:
Spirits, 1907 ................ 106,738 bbls.
Rosin, W07 ................ 329,29 bbls.
Spirits, 1906 ................ 85,326 bbls.
Rosin, 1906 ................. 312,249 bbls.
This certainly does not show a decline
Now I am no lover of the darkey. I
have worked them long enough to know
their failings, but why place all the onus
on the darkey. Why not place it where
it belongs. I doubt whether labor can be
reduced at all, notwithstanding the ef-
forts to do so. At any rate right here in
South Carolina labor is still scarce, and
farmers are paying about the same prices
for labor as I pay for turpentine labor.
I think it is about time for producers
of naval stores to try some other remedy
association other than in name only, they
better come together and try more drastic
measures than reducing the price of labor.
The production is declining and consump-
tion increasing. Turpentine timber is get-
ting less plentiful ever year, then why
cannot the producer control the situation?
If the factors, who evidently are a
power of great magnitude, will try to as-
sist the producer in maintaining prices,
and it is claimed that at least one, and I
believe the largest factorage concern, is
willing to do so, why not call a meeting
of the Association and arrange to sell
through one agency only, and thereby fix
some reasonable price for naval stores,
As to the financial situation, whilst
there may be some stringency yet, I am
satisfied all the necessary funds oan be
obtained to carry on the naval stores busi-
ness successfully, especially as there ap-
pears to be no overproduction and naval

Big Phosphate Plant by the Cummer Company
It is almost a weekly occurrence, the
noting of some great new industry for
Jacksonville. Another important enter-
prise proving feasible by deep water and
coming in tie wake of the recent an-
nouncement of the completion of the twen-
ty-four-foot channel in the St. Johns from
Jacksonville to the sea, is the big phos-
phate shipping facilities now in course of
construction by the W. W. Cummer Lum-
ber Company at Millville, just north of
their immense plant. *
Work on the new enterprise has actual-
ly started and a small army of workmen
is now engaged driving the piling for a
bulkhead upon which will rest a large
shed and warehouse. There is 1,000 feet
of bulkheading to be done, and the con-
tract for this work has been let to R. T.
Brown, a well-known contractor in that
Within a few days the construction of a
00-Ofoot pier will begin and will extend
out into the river from the bulkhead.
From the main channel of the river to the
head of the proposed pier, a dredge will
be put to work digging a twenty-four-foot
channel, or a channel with a depth equal
to that of the main channel of the river.
In front of the pier will also be dredged a
wide basin, in order to allow boats ade-
quite space in which to turn around and
From the dredge a long pipe will ex-
tend to the'bulkhead and by hydraulic
process the bottom of the river at the head
of the pier will be poured behindthe bulk-
head, building up the enclosure to a de-
sired height for the parehouse and making
what was part of the river a firm and sub-
stantial foundation for a building.
Immese Storage Facilities.
As soon as the bulkhead has been com-
pleted, the shed, which will be Ox%400 feet
and with a height of 25 feet, will be erect-
ed. The storage capacity of the ware-
house will be 12,000 tons, the largest of
its kind in the State.
All the machinery for the plant has been
contracted for. It will be electrically
driven, and will be the most modern and
expensive machinery of the kind procura-
The electric equipment has many advan-
tages over the old-time aschinery in most
of the plants of the country. With a
handful of machinists and electricians the
entire plant can be operated and the same,
if not better results can be obtained as
from the larger and more bulksome plants.
The equipment includes a huge electric
locomotive crane. This crane will be used
to load the rock from the shed to the belt
conveyer, which, when in operation, contin-
uously carries the phosphate into the hold
of the ship at the head of the pier.
Two Rotary Dryers.
The plant will also have in its equip-
ment two large rotary dryers to dry the
rock. The former practice of drying the
rock at the mine will be disregarded, and
the rock will be shipped here, crushed
and dried by the latest improved process.
This plan has its merits. The drying will
be done with the waste products of the
sawmill of the company.
The loading capacity of the plant will
be 000 tons per daq.
The Cummer Company hopes to have
the plant in operation by July, and after
that date they feel certain that 75,000
tons of phosphate rock will be handled
through this port each year.
The summerr Company has six big phos-
phate mines near Newberry, Alachua coun-
ty. They will only handle the shipment
of products from their own mines through
the new plant. However, now that they
have taken the initiative, it is quite likely
that other phosphate shipping plants will
Great Thing for Jacksonville.
The exporting of hard rock phosphate
from Florida has almost entirely passed
through the ports of Savannah, Fernan-
dina and Port Tampa in the past, and
now, with the harbor improvement, it is
reasonable that a goodly portion of this
business should pass through this port.
From all parts of the world will doubt-
less come steamers to the summerr pier
to be loaded with cargoes of phosphate
rock. (Germany is the largest importer of
Florida phosphate rock ,the Florida arti-
cle in that country being given preference
for the manufacture of high-grade ferti-

In its issue of yesterday, the Tampa
"After completing the census taking of
immigrants in public and private institu-
tions in the- city of Tampa, John A.
Wright, inspector of immigration for the
United States government in Jacksonville,
left for St. Petersburg, where he goes on
a similar mission.
"The foreign inmates of institutions of
a charitable nature, both public and pri-
vate, hospitals and penal institutions were
visited by the inspector. In his rounds he
visited the county jail, the emergency hos-
pital, the stockade and the Centro Astu-
riano. After making a thorough investi-
gation to aseertan if there were any indi-
gent aliens in this city, he reported that
he did not find a single case that the
government could order deported.
"Under a law passed in 1903, it was pro-
viled that census of foreign people should
be taken when thought advisable by the
immigration bureau, in order that they
might learn the number of foreigners get-
ting into jail or becoming inmates of hos-
pitals or other charitable institutions of
both public and private nature. If a rad-
ical case of destitution or crime should be
discovered it is provided that the depart-
ment can order deportation if it is deemed
"The census law applying to aliens pro-
vides that if a foreigner has been in this
country for a period of three years he can
then become a naturalized citizen of the
United States. Inspector Wright says
that all foreigners here have been in this
country for over three years. This is the
second census of this kind taken, and In-
spector Wright will cover this State for
the government. The order is operative
throughout the United States and the in-
spection and census taking began March
thludixz O1 CUTOVER LANDS IN
South Mississppians are up in arms
over the report as to the fertility of cut-
over lands, made recently by experts of
the federal forest service, and mentioned
at the time in these columns. In effect
the forest experts declared that much of
the cutover land was unfit for agricultural
purposes, the argument being that steps
towards its reforestation should be taken
at onee. Now, it so happens that a large
proportion of the farms in southeast Mis-
sissippi, and there are many both fertile
and remunerative, have been reclaimed
from the forests after the timber has been
felled. At the recent State exposition and
fair in Jackson a gratifying proportion of
the agricultural prices was captured by
the products of these piney woods farms.
In and around Laurel, Miss, truck farming
on these same lands has been found so
profitable that the industry has grown
rapidly. Consequently the report of their
unfitness for agriculture raised a storm
At a meeting of the Biloxi Commercial
Club last week a sort of indignation rally
was held, Congressman Bowers being in
attendance as well as representatives of
commercial bodies at Gulfport, Hatties-
burg, Ocean Springs and Scranton. So de-
termined was the stand taken that Mr.
Holmes, the federal expert who is charged
with responsibility for the report, is said
to have agreed to recall the document and
to reissue it in amended form. The evi-
dent object of the report was to impress
upon the Mississippi legislature the neces-
sity for a State forestry law, which is
conceded, but the South Mississippians ap-
parently feel that the report reflected un-
justly upon the fertility of their cutover
lands and are determined to correct the
erroneous impressions disseminated by the
document, which was widely circulated
and extensively commented upon. The
facts seem to be that most of the land is
well adapted to agriculture and that intel-
ligent farming methods make it pay well.
It is true, of course, that large areas of
the lands have not yet been placed under
cultivation, this being due to the sparse
settlement of some portions of the terri-
tory, the rapid work of the logging crews
of late years, and the scarcity of farm
labor during the same time.
AN INEXPEDIENCY REVEALED.
It has been suggested that the American
tariff on lumber should be removed in
order that there may be a great influx of
Canadian timber, which is near at hand
and readily available. In reply it has
been pointed out that such an act would
demoralize to a considerable extent the
American lumber market, causing serious
loss to a great industry, and in the end
would not greatly benetit the consumer,
as the greatest importation would be of
box lumber and the lower grades of manu-
factured wood. There is another argu-
ment, however, against opening the gates
which has been given consideration. Such
an act, even if it could do all that is
claimed, would be only a temporary exped-
ient. The only interest we can have in
Canadian forests lies in the fact that they
will be available if our own forests are ul-
timately destroyed. \\e would be foolish,
indeed, to waste such a future resource for
the sake of a temporary advantage which
at best is a matter of doubt.
The greatest enemy of the forest is
cheap lumber. A low price not only in-
creases the legitimate consumption of lum-
ber but makes the consumer more waste-
ful and the manufacturer necessarily so.
The cost of logging and sawing that part
of the tree which goes into the lower
grades is practically the same as the cost
of producing the higher gra-les. If lum-
ber is generally cheap the lumberman
must produce only the higher grades and

let that part of the tree that will pro-

For this reason the unrestricted entry of
Canadian lumber at this time would not
particularly relieve the situation and
w would be wasteful of American and Ca-
nadian forests. It will be seen, therefore,
that the tariff not merely protects a great
American industry, but actually encour-
ages the economic cutting of American
