enormouss cheap stocks of commons will
allow the American Naval Stores Com-
pany to undersell competition in all mar-

latter to buy in the primary markets, ex-
empt perhaps, by paying much higher
prices than the American for pales. As it
is dangerous, however, for other exporters
than the American, to accumulate big

the field more or less to the .-wmerln and

but tie trit of manipulate market and
pentine which is greeted with considerable
satisfaction by exporters. It appears, that
the turpentine sold so far has been taken
in to the greatest extent by the actual
consuming trade, and as even the con-
sumers are known to have bought from
hand to mouth only, it is evident, that
they must continue buying here what
they need for their manufacture. If it is
true, that dealers have abstained from
buying extensively, and it may well be so,
because the continuous decline must have
been a warning to them against laying in
heavy stocks, there is reason to believe,
that still a great demand needs to be sup-
plied. It is known furthermore, that the
buyers will not come forward during a
period of decline, and we may express our
belief therefore, that a strong demand
will come up as soon as the market shows
actual strength. It must be understood

fuse which went to waste, exclusive of
bark, amounted to at least eight million
cords. All of the material should have a
value, not only for the fiber which it con-
tains but also for its rosin and turpentine
content. It is a conservative estimate to
make that in the year 1906 at least thirty
million gallons of turpentine were actually
thrown away without giving a cent of
profit. This is a surprising figure when
it is remembered that it represents an
amount almost equal to the present pro-
duction of gum spirits in this country, and
that if this product had been extracted
from the wood and sold at the current
price of good wood turpentine there would
easily have been a gross saving to this
country of twelve million dollars.
Now, I take it that this is the particu-
lar phase of this great subject which is of
special interest to you gentlemen in the
paint and varnish business. The Forest
Service is not the first to realize the enor-
self in a very narrow way. There has
been practically no exchange of ideas, ao
meetings of any kind to talk over prob-
lems of manufacturing nor an attempt to
put the industry on its feet, where it be-
longs. Not even a directory of the differ-
ent companies is available. (Such a pub-
lication would be of obviously great value
to both the producer and the consumer).
In fact, gentlemen, the industry at the
present time is scarcely in a positioncto
take up and make the most of good res4
even if they are obtained. A careful stuwly
of the whole situation has shown that
very unsatisfactory conditions exist. It is
the intention of the Forest Service to help
matters to the best of its ability; but this
requires time, careful head work and
money. At present the amount of funds
available is small. A bill was introduced
in Congress last year and the yar before,
providing 5,000 for the establish t of
an .rperIatl distillation plant in the

South. This bill, however, has failed to
pas. The Agricultural appropriation bill
this year contains a clause which reads as
"To enable the Secretary of Agriculture
to inquire into the destruction of the for-
eats by the production of turpentine and
roin and the sources and methods of said
industry, and, in co-operation with the
Bureau of the Census, to report on the pro-
duction of the naval stores industry, $10,-
000, or so much thereof as may be neces-
sary, including the employment of labor in
Washington and elsewhere."
This portion of the bill has now passed
both the Senate and the House and be-
comes effective July 1. Work along the
lines covered by the clause referred to can
be planned for at one. Sufficient co-oper-
ative funds to start the refining experi-
ments have also been subscribed by two
lumber associations, namely, the Yellow
Pine Manufacturers' Association and the
Georgia-Florida Sawmill Association. The
work has been outlined and plans for a
high efficiency refining still have been com-
pleted. This will be constructed during
the summer, and when completed will be
set up at various plants in the South and
the crude turpentine refined to the highest
practical degree of purity.
It is proposed to submit large samples
of the various materials to leading paint
and varnish manufacturers for their ap-
proval, and it is hoped that the results
will ultimately lead to the standardization
and grading of all turpentines. This much
of the work can certainly be started im-
mediately and the hearty co-operation of
all parties interested is desired, together
with any suggestions which can be made
regarding the plan outlined. I feel strong-
ly that you gentlemen of the paint and
varnish industry should be especially inter-
ested in this work, and that you will be
glad to see it succeed. It makes no differ-
ence what the industry is, the manufac-
turer who most carefully selects uniform
raw materials is the man who has the
least difficulty in turning out a high-grade
and uniform finished product. The de-
mands of the consumers are becoming
more exacting year by year, and competi-
tion to meet these demands becomes keen-
er and keener as time goes on. It is for
this reason that I feel certain that you
will welcome in your industry not a sub-
stitute for gum spirits, but the identical
product obtained by a different process
from the same source, and especially what
I feel certain will be one of the outcomes
of the investigation, namely, a greater
source of turpentine and a more uniform
high-grade product obtained from present
SYMPTOMS OF CITRUS DIE-BACIL
By B Floyd
Die-back is one of the common diseases
of citrus trees, occurring in groves where
the trees have been weakened by im-
proper treatment or other conditions. No
locality is exempt from this disease; and
any variety of citrus fruit-trees may be
attacked by it. The damage in any one
grove is usually small, throughout the
State the total loss amounts to thousands
of dollars. The symptoms are very char-

Rounded elevations or swellings, known
as gum pockets, are often found at the
baes of the leaves on the young stems of
diseased trees. They may also be located
on the twigs between the leaves. These
elevations vary in size from that of half a
pea to a large lima bean. A cross section

Resinous eruptions are present both
upon the young and old growth of affect-
ed trees, and may be very numerous. They
form during any time of year, starting as
rounded elevations in the bark. The epi-
dermus usually breaks in a line, exposing
a surface from which a light rosin-like
substance oozes that hardens and forms a
pad which becomes dark brown in color
with age. The bark is the only part or the
stem affected by these eruptions, the

bells. The stain occurs in irregular areas,
which sometimes unite so as to cover the
whole surface of the branch. This strain-

fned to a single part of the branch, to the
extent of several inches. This manifesta-
tio has given the disease the name of
The buds on a diseased branch frequent-
ly develop in large numbers, instead of as
usual singly or in pairs. Resinous erup-
tions may occur, covering them with a
resinous coat. In some cases, apparently
no buds are formed, but resinous knots oc-
tions at the center of the fruit. The
gumming may be so extensive as to sur-
round the seeds.
Less Characteristic Symptoms.
The foliage of trees on the verge of die-
back shows a very dark-green appearance.
Usually this is the first symptom to be
seen, but it is often misleading because it
so nearly resembles the healthy color de-
sired by growers. It may be accompanied
by a rank growth of the foliage, and by
large, thick-rined fruit. These three mani-
festations indicate that the tree is obtain-
ing an over-supply of ammonia, which
nearly always produces die-back.
Young twigs acquire an s-shaped alp-
pearance on account of their first drooping
downward and finally turning upward at
the tip during growth. This is not a cer-
tain characteristic, as it is sometimes seen
in healthy trees.
The above enumeration of the character-
istic symptoms of die-back will aid in de-
termining its presence in a grove.
Wood Preservation For Horticulturists.
During the coming year the government
will extend its experiments in wood pres-
ervation to cover an entirely new field-
the wook of treating greenhouse timbers.
Decay takes place very rapidly under
the conditions of high humidity always
found in greenhouses and horticultural
buildings. The timber at present em-
ployed in the construction of such build-
ings consists for the most part of the
naturally durable and relatively expen-
sive kinds, such as select cypress and
whitepine. By a preservative treatment
other cheaper and less durable species can
probably be successfully substituted lor
them, and this can be done at a low cost.
In the treatment of greenhouse timbers
several problems must be solved. or in-
stance, it is desirable that the wood used
in greenhouse construction be painted
white in order that it will reflect as much
cur in their place. The buds may develop light as possible. Consequently, a pre-
into leaves and shoots forming dense leaf- servative must be used which will allow
ldusters or rosettes of shoots, which are the treated timbers to hold a coat of white
characteristic of die-back. As the disease
progresses these new shoots lose their
leaves, become stained, and die back.
Splits and "Ammoniated Fruits."
Very young fruit on a disease tree
takes on a pale green appearance, and
often falls off. Fruits from one inch in
diameter upward may turn yellowish. The
rind becomes stained reddish brown in ir-
regular areas, accompanied by splitting.
This form is often spoken of by citrus
growers as "ammoniated," or "fungused"
fruit. The latter term is incofreet, since
no fungus has been proved to be concerned
in this disease. In this stage die-back
resembles a fruit disease caused by the
withertip fungus and known as anthrac-
nose. The brown or reddish spots of
withertip are always slightly sunken.
while the browninsh spots of die-back on
the so-called ammoniated fruits are never
depressed. It is in this tage that most of
the fruit falls. In severe cases very lit-
tle of the fruit will reach maturity. Split-
ting may also occur at the bloom end of
fruits that are not stained. In this case,
.deposits at the gummy substance are usu-
ally found in Rhe inner angles of the see-
paint. Again, no preservative can be used
which will in any degree affect the grow-
ing plants. It is probable, however, that
these difficulties can be overcome and tue
completion of the investigation will be
watched with interest.
The-investigation in wood preservation
by the use of creosote, which is nothing
more than the dead oil of coal tar and
of zinc chloride, is considered of such Im-
portance by the government that one
branch of a bureau in the United States
Department of Agriculture-the "Office of
Wood Preservation" in the Forest Service
-is given over entirely to the work of ex-
periments in co-operation with railroad
companies, mining corporations and indi-
viduals who desire to prolong the life of
the timber which they use. Advice and
practical assistance are furnished all who
request it of the Forester at Washington.

increased the money returns from an aver-
age acre of forest sevenfold.
In France forestry has decreased the
danger from floods, which threaten to
destroy vast areas of fertile farms, and in
doing so has added many millions of dol-
lars to the national wealth in new for-
ests. It has removed the danger from
sand dunes and in their place has created
a property worth many millions of dollars.
Applied to the State forests, which are
small in comparison with the National
forests of this country, it causes them to
yield each year a net revenue of more than
$4,700,000, though the sum spent on each
acre for management is over 100 times
greater than that spent on the forests of
the United States.
France and Germany together have a
population of 100,000,000, in round num-
bers, against our probable 85,000,000, and
State forests of 14,500,000 acres against
our 160,000,000 acres of National Forests;
but France and Germany spend on their
forests $11,000,000 a year and get from
them in net returns $30,000,000 a year,
while the United States spent on the Nat-
ional Forests last year $1,400,000 and se-
cured a net return of less than $130,000.
In Switzerland, where every foot of
agricultural land is of the greatest value,
forestry has made it possible for the peo-
ple to farm all land fit for crops, and so
has assisted the country to support a
larger population, and one that is more
prosperous, than would be the case if the
valleys were subjected to destructive
floods. In a country as small as Switzer-
land, and one which contains so many
high and rugged mountains, this is a ser-
vice the benefits of which cannot be meas-
ured in dollars. It is in Switzerland also,
in the Sihiwald, that forestry demon-
strates beyond contradiction how great a
yield in wood and money it may bring
about if applied consistently for a number
A circular entitled "What Forestry Has
Done," just published by the Forest Ser-
vice, and obtainable upon application to
the Forester, Washington, D. C., reviews
the forest work of the leading foreign
countries. The chief lessons which may be
learned fro them are summarized as fol-
What forestry has done in other coun-
tries shows, first of all, that forestry
pays, and that it pays best where the
most money is expended in applying it.
The United States is enormously behind-
hand in its expenditure for the manage-
ment of the National Forests, but never-
theless returns have already increased
with increased expenditure for manage-
A second lesson, clearly brought homc
by foreign forestry, is the need of timely
action, since forest waste can be repaired
only at great cost.
Third, private initiative does not suffice
by itself to prevent wasteful forest use.
England, it is true, has so far consistent-
ly followed a let-alone policy. However,
England has been depending upon foreign
supplies of wood. Now that all Europe
is running behind every year in the pro-
duction of wood (2,620,000 tons), and
there are unmistakable signs that coun-
tries which lead as exporters of wood will
have to curtail their wood exports, Eng-
land is at last feeling her dependence and
is speculating uneasily as to where she
can certainly secure what wood she needs
in the future.

compared as to wood imports and ex-

ports, and when it is realized that a num-
ber of the countries which practice for-
estry are even now on the wood-importing
list, the need of forestry in the export
countries is doubly enforced
Russia, Sweden, Austria-Hungary, and
Canada, for instance, are making good the
wood deficit of a large part of the world.
Sweden cuts much more wood (106,000,-
000 cubic feet) than she produces; Russia,
-in spite of her enormous forest resources,
has probably entered the same road; aad
England, the leading importer of wood,
must count more and more on mnada.
But the United States onsumes every
year from three to four times the wood
which its forests produce, and in due time
will doubtless take all the wood that Can-
ada can spare. In other words, unless the
countries of the western hemisphere ap-
ply forestry promptly and thoroughly,
they will one day be held responsible for
a world-wide timber famine
Fifth, in comparison with foreign coun-
tries the prospects for forestry in the
United States are particularly bright, for
the following reasons:
(1) We start with the assurance that
success can certainly be attained.
(2) We have few of the handicaps
which have trammeled other countries.
We have no ancient forest rights and
usages with which to contend, or trouble-
some property questions to settle
(3) The results which other lands have
achieved by long struggle, often with bit-
ter costs, are free to us to use as we wish.
We have, it is true, our purely National
and local forest questions, but the key to
many of them is somewhere in the keep-
ing of the countries which have achieved
(4) In variety combined with value our
forests are without a parallel in the world.
They produce timber adapted to the great-
est variety of uses, so that, except to meet
shortage, importations of wood are unnec-
essary. Furthermore, transportation fa-

SOME NMGLECTED FLORIDA FRUITS.
(By John Belling.)
Many tropical and sub-tropical fruit
trees which may thrive in some parts of
Florida seem not to be worth planting on
account of the inferior character of their
fruit. On the other hand, there are cer-
tain excellent fruits which might with ad-
vantage be more abundantly grown in
Florida than they are.
The Japanese Persimmon.
The best kinds of grafted Japanese per-
simmons are worthy of more extended
cultivation for private or local supply
throughout northern and central Florida,
quite apart from the question whether
dwellers in Northern cities are yet suffi-
ciently educated in the use of this fruit
to make it profitable to plant groves
here for shipping purpose. Now that it
has been shown (in the Annual Report
for 1907 of the Florida Agricultural Ex-
periment Station, which will be sent free
on re quest) that the astringent fruits
can be perfectly ripened in alcohol vapor
in dosed barrels or other containers, very
little ingenuity is needed to put them on
the market in a completely ripe condition.
Prof. P. H. Rolfs considers that "Every
property owner in Florida who has more
land than a city lot should have one or
more trees of the Japanese persimmon, so
that his family can be supplied with fresh
fruit at a time of the year when other-
wise they would have to purchase shipped
:and frequently inferior fruit. The Japan-
*ese persimmon can be grown in every sec-
tion of Florida ,and three good trees would
supply one family. Among the varieties
that may be recommended for the whole
State are Hyakume, Okame and Yemon."
Good varieties of the fig might well be
more commonly planted in central and
northern Florida. Where the fig-tree can
be grown without much injury from root-
knot the heavy crops it yields have a large
market open for them when preserved in
syrup or wheo erystalized. Either raw
or preserved they form a healthful addi-
tion to the dietary of children, and even
one well-cared-for fig tree near the house,
if it is only given sufficient sunlight and
water, with ashes, etc., from the kitchen,
will provide large quantities of good fruit.
The fig prefers a rather heavy soil, but
the drainage must be good enough to pre-
vent stagnant water from accumulating.
COttings grow very easily, and should be
taken from those fig-trees in the neighbor-
hood which yield the best crops. This tree
well repays fertilizing, but it will not do
to give it much ammonia, relatively to the
potash and phosphate, especially if the
soil is already rich.
The guava groves of South Florida
might with advantage be considerably ex-
tended, through the propagation of the
best varieties for jelly-making and can-
ning, by means of stem or root cuttings.
Guavas, though doubtless more sensitive
to cold than the sweet orange, can be
grown as far north as Alachua county, if
they are well protected during the few
nights when the temperature is below 32
degrees; and even when frozen down they
spring up again very quickly. The pro-
duction of what is undoubtedly one of the
best fruit jellies does not seem to have
caught up with the demand.
Good varieties of the papaya should be
more generally grown in South Florida.
Experience shows that the rich pulp of a
fully ripe papaya, eaten at the end of a
dinner (with cream and sugar if preferred)
accelerates digestion remarkably. Some
of the papayas however which are grown
in South Florida are inferior varieties.
Good seed can be obtained from Hawaii or
from Barbados. The long fruited variety
is superior for all or most purposes to
the ordinary kind. The best sort in the
West Indies is probably the large melon-
shaped rather scarce fruit called sometimes
"Guinea papaw." The papaya has been
shipped successfully from Hawaii to San
Francisco in cold storage, and there is not
much difficulty in sending it from South
Florida to New York. In this fruit, na-
ture has provided an efficient remedy for
dyspepsia, and as its qualities become bet-
ter known it will no doubt be much more
in demand. The papaya can readily be
grown in Monroe, Dade, Lee and DeSoto
counties, in some localities in Manatee
and Saint Lucie, and, with winter pro-
tection, still farther north.

eotmseedl meal and coeoanut meal were
nat fed in equal, but in equivalent rations,
which were calculated from the results
of the chemical analysis.
The experiment proper, lasted sixty-
three days, during which time the cows
which were fed with cottonseed meal pro-
duced 1,889.5 pounds of milk, and cows
which received eooeanut meal gave 1,844
pounds of milk; so that the balance in
favor of eottonseed meal was only 44.5
pounds for the whole period, or an aver-
age of a little more than 11 ounces a day.
((Oe gallon of milk weighs &6 pounds.)
From the above results, we find that one
pound of cottonseed meal is nearly equal
t otwo pounds of cocoanut meal for milk
production. This corresponds nearly to
the results of the chemical analyses of
these two materials. In other words, our
experiments indicate that a unit of pro-
tain from cocoanut meal is very nearly,
but not quite, equal to a unit of protein
from cottonseed meal.
In this experiment the total amount of
feds consumed were as follows:
ist Test-Coooanut meal, 453 pounds;
bran, 1,00 pounds; ahorts, 1,006 pounds.
Second Test-C~ttonseed meal, 252 pounds,
bra 1,008 pounds, shorts 1,008 pounds.
One pound of cottonseed meal with the
proper amount of bran and shorts pro-
duad 7.40 pounds of milk; while one
pomd of eceoanut meal with the corres-
posting amount of bran and shorts pro-
duied only 4.0 pounds of milk.
SB far as we are able to detect, the co-
eoanut meal had o bad effects on the
general health or wstitutioe of the ani-
nals. After the first few feeds the cows
all seemed to relish the cocoanut meal,
and apparently ate it as heartily as they
did the cottonseed meal. The cows were
weighed at regular intervals, and a com-
parison shows that they all gained a little
in weight during the period of the experi-
The tet reported here was not conduct-
ed during the best season of the year for
the dairy cow. The hot weather of July
sud August, when accompanied by an
abundance of lies and mouquitioes, is not
onduave to a good yield of milk. This,
sa duabt, amounts in part for the low
daly average yield per cow, which was a
little lew than two gallons. This is what
would be called only a fair yield for a
goo dairy eow. A good cow ought to

the school of forestry of the University of
Georgia, at Athens, Ga., to furnish timber
owners with experts who will examine
and report upon any of the forests in the
The object of the offer is to collect in-
formation in regard to the forest re-
sources of the State, to spread a knowl-
edge of forestry and to improve forest con,
editions. The forest school will furnish the
experts free and the only expense which
will be borne by the forest owner will be
paid for the traveling and subsistence ex-
penses of the expert while making the
examination. In cases where several own-
ers of the same locality apply the ex-
penses will be prorated.
When applications for examination are
made, the owners have been asked to give
their names and post office addresses, loca-
tion of tract, area of tract, character of
forest as shown by the innos of trees
growing on the land, the conditions of the
forest, whether mature, original or second
growth, whether the land has been burned
or cut over, and the wishes of the owner
regarding the use of the land.
WILL ERECT HANDSOME TEN- STORY
Bids In Hands of W. A. Bisbee, Owner and
H. J. iathoe Architect, Ready for
While the air of pleasurable expectancy
has been rent by rumors of sky-scrapersm
to swell Jacksonville's progress, during the
past several weeks and at times actual
preparations of erection have appeared
upon the very threshold of beginning, a
pall of serenity and the stronghold of gos-
sip became troubled. However, Jackson-
ville is to have a modern ten-story sky-
scraper and it comes from an unexpected
and a heretofore unannounced quarter.
Plans have been drawn and bids are in
the hands of Mr. W. A. Bisbee, owner, and
Mr. H. J. Klutho, architect, for the erec-
tion of an up-to-date office building, tow-
ering ten stories, and which will cost when
completed, $100,000. The site of the build-
ing will be the vacant lot on West Forsyth
street, adjoining on the east the Florida
National Bank building.
Dimensions of the Building.
The dimensions of the building, as stipu-
lated in the plans and specifications, are
twenty-eight feet in width and ninety-live
feet in length. This will leave an alley-
way on the side adjoining the bank build-
ing of between seven and eight feet.
The building will be constructed of re-
inforced concrete, the reinforced concrete
contract having been a few days ago
awarded to tjie Southern Ferro Concrete
Company of Atlanta, which firm is now en-
gaged in erecting the Masonic Temple an .
the Y. M. C. A. building in this city, and
many other large structures throughout
Fire and Earthquake Proof.
The material used and the manner of
construction will make the building thor-
oughly fire and earthquake proof. The
building will be one of the most substan-
tial of the kind in the entire South.
The first floor will consist of a store
about nineteen by ninety feet with a hand-
some plate-glass front very similar to
those seen on Fifth avenue, New York. On
the easterly side will be located the en-
trance to the elevators. This corridor will and other adverse conditions are attributed
be seven feet wide and will be lined on as the cause of the deficiency. However,
both sides with English veined Italian taking all into consideration, this year's
marble wainscoating six feet high. The clearings are considered remarkably good.

Each floor will contain six commodious
offices. Each floor has its own toilet
rooms, fitted out with marble stalls and
wainscoting and up-to-date plumbing fix-
The structure, in all, will be one of the
handsomest office buildings, when com-
pleted, in the South. It will do honor to
the city and will embellish that dignified
section of Forsyth street, in which are l;-
cated the government building, Barnett

Something About Owner.
The owner, Mr. W. A. Bisbee, is a well
known capitalist of Savannah. He is ex
tensively interested in Jacksonville real
estate, and is the possessor of the proper-
ty occupied by Bettes' pharmacy at the
corner of Bay and maura streets. He is a
good investor, a substantial business man
and has great faith in the future pros-
perity of Jacksonville, where he resided
for many years.
Mr. H. J. Klutho, the well known archi-
tect, who has offices in the Board of Trade
building. Mr. Klutho has executed a clever
piece of work. He has thrown an excep-
tional individuality into the plans which
are a rare piece of architectural workman-
ship. Mr. Klutho was architect for such
handsome buildings in the city as the city
hall, Dyal-Upchurch, Board of Trade, Car-
negie Library, Y. M. C. A. and other num-
Month's Bank Clearing Amounted to
By an official compilation of figures, the
bank clearings for the month of May, end-
ing yesterday, are shown to amount to
$6,091,647.78. The total clearings for the
preceding month amounted to $6,308,977.92,
which exceeded May figures by $317,330.14.
The total clearings for May of last year
amounted to $6,87,878.35. The election

MEW FREIGHT DEPOT INSPECTED.
The Board of Trade Committee Greatly
The following interesting data concern-
ing the new freight depots and ware-
houses of the Atlantic and East Coast
Terminal Company is furnished by Secre-
tary H. H. Richardson of the Jacksonville
Board of Trade in his weekly board of
trade notes, which are looked forward to
with interest by the business men, not
only in Jacksonville, but of the entire
The freight service committee met on
Friday and in a body went to inspect the
new terminal buildings of the Atlantic and
East Coast Terminal Company. They
were met at the new building by Mr. J.
W. Richardson, civil engineer, in charge of
construction, and Mr. W. P. Richardson,
general contractor, who erected the build-
These terminals are of the most im-
proved character and the Atlantic Coast
Line Railway Company and the Florida
East Coast Railway Company deserve the
thanks of citizens of Jacksonville for the
vast improvements they have made in the
construction of these buildings, which will
be of material advantage to the merchants
of the city.
The freight houses are nearly 800 feet
long and cover the entire space between
Jefferson and Davis streets. The east.end
of the building faces on Jefferson street.
This part of the terminal is two stories in
height and the Bay and Jefferson street
corner is to be occupied by the local freight
office of the Florida East Coast Railway,
and the Forsyth street corner by the At-
lantic Coast Line Railway Company. Each
of the warehouses is equipped with Fair-
banks scales, some of the capacity of 3,000
pounds and some of 5,000 pounds capacity,
there being scales in every opening onto
the street. All the openings are protected
by rolling steel shutters, of which there
The office portion of the building are
all heated by steam radiators, with am-
ple toilet room accommodations. The wood
work of the offices is of much higher class
than usually usel for such purposes. The
ceilings are very lofty and the brick walls
are painted white.
(Continued from page 1.)
however, that the demand, nowadays, does
not make the market, but that it is the
market only, which makes the demand.
Thus it is left to the American Naval .
Stores again, whether or not such demand
will be created.
Our theories as to the future of the na-
val stores market may or may not come
true, we have not given word to them in
order to influence our readers, but simply
to show them the possibilities of a market
when it is ruled by manipulators. We i
are not favored with the confidence of the
American Naval Stores Company, and any
opinion we may express must necessarily
be a matter of conjecture on our part. But
our readers will learn again, that the mar-
ket is at the mercy of the American Naval
Stores Company and before this fact is
eliminated from the Naval Stores Trade,
producers as well as factors, will never get
true satisfaction from their worn.
The producing end needs prices which
allow a reasonable profit at all times, but M
this goal cannot be reached if the Ameri-
can Naval Stores Company is allowed to B
fix the prices, following only their own
interests. No help will come to the in-
dustry from the market in Savannah, and
we urge the producing end again and
again to take the issue into its own hands,
which ultimately must bring the desired
results, better than an occasional advance
in prices which circumstances (American
Naval Stores Company) may create.
We have said before, that any action on
the part of the producing end must be a
united one. Whatever move should he
made, it must be sustained by every pro-
ducer and every factor. They all have
recognized the danger to which they are
subjected as long as the American Naval
Stores Company rules and makes the mar-
ket and we feel sure, that every man in-
terested in the production, whether he is
out in the woods, producing the commol-
ity, or buying the product of the wood-
man's toil from his office, will join the
"call to arms" when the roll is called for
a determined, honest fight against tyranny
Recollect again that market manipula-
tions are always at the cost of the pro-
ducer, for the profit of those controlling
