The Operators' Convention fn?
The Industrial Record congratulates the members
W I;of the Turpentine Operators' Association upon the 0
work accomplished and the harmony that prevailed
during the annual convention of the Association.
The Association has pledged its unqualified sup-
port to the Naval Stores Mar ting Company. Most
substantial and satisfactory subscriptions to the stock
of the new company were made by those in attendance
upon the meeting. And a committee of fifty from
among the largest operators in the belt has been ap-
pointed to confer with the operators who were unable
to attend the meeting, and to secure their subscrip-
Itions, as well as to exercise their influence in favor of
reducing the box cut to a minimum during the coming
winter, and to work for such national legislation, as
will put a stop to adulteration, false grading, marking
and "horning" and provide for accurate statistics.
t It is believed that as soon as this Committee shall
have rendered its report,the immediate organization of
S1 the Naval Stores Marketg Company will be assured.
SAlready there is a slight improvement in prices,
b' %resulting from the agitation regarding the organiza-
tion of the new company, but operators should not be
misled. They should stand firmly together and work
in harmony to bring about a permanent restoration
Sof normal conditions.

Turpentine Operators in Annual Convention.

Meeting Was an Unqualified Success and Great Enthusiasm Prevailed-Strong Resolutions

Adopted and Eloquent Addresses Delivered-Naval Stores Marketing Com-

pany Endorsed and Stock Liberally Subscribed For.

ine eigntn annual convention or tme

Turpentine Operators' Association was
held in Jacksonville on Wednesday and
Thursday, October 14 and 15, and was
without doubt the largest and most en-
thusiastic convention ever held by this or-
ganization that is composed of the most
prominent and influential men engaged mn
the naval stores industry.
Harmony prevailed and the business of
the convention was carried through with
promptness and dispatch.
The great feature of the convention was
the meeting held Wednesday night at
which the special committee that nas ueen
working for weeks perfecting the organiza-
tion of the Naval Stores Marketing Com-
pany, submitted its report, and the mem-
bers of the association responded most
liberally to an invitation to become stock-
holders in the company, which it is be-
lieved will do much to bring about a res-
toration of the industry to normal condi-
Strong Resolutions.
During the proceedings the association
adopted strong resolutions endorsing the
new company; urging that no new boxes
be cut during the coming winter; demand-
ing Federal inspection of naval stores to
prevent adulterations, and fraudulent
grading, marking and "horning"; urging
the operators to stand by the association;
thanking the Jacksonville Board or t'raue
for the work it has done in behalf of the
naval stores industry; commending the
United States Forestry Bureau for its
efforts to secure correct statistics; and
other resolutions of minor importance, all
of which are published in full in this is-
sue of the Record.
The opening session was called to order
Wednesday morning by President J. G.
Boyd, of Bartow, Fla., and there were
nearly three hundred operators in attend-
ance, every State in the naval stores belt
being well represented. Secretary J. A.
Hollomon, and Treasurer John Henderson,
were in attendance and the utmost inter-
est was manifested in the proceedings.
The meeting was formally opened with
prayer by Rev. W. L. Mahon, who was
followed by Mayor W. H. Sebring in a
characteristically eloquent address of wel-
come on behalf of the city.
Mr. Conroy's Address.
Mr. Francis P. Conroy, second vice-
president of the Board of Trade, followed
Mayor Sebring, delivering the following
pleasing address of welcome on behalf of
the Jacksonville Board of Trade, which
has done so much for the turpentine indus-
try by its comprehensive investigations as

profit-making price for its crop. The reso-
lutions were unanimously adopted at one
of the largest attended meetings this board
has ever had. Enthusiasm reigned su-
preme. Every man that attended that
meeting foresaw better times in Florida,
better times in Georgia, in Louisiana, in
Mississippi, in Texas, and the entire coun-
try where naval stores were produced.
Many of you, doubtless, know the results.
This board is proud of the fact that it is
the parent of an organization destined to
lead you and us to better times, namely,
the Naval Stores Marketing Company-
a corporation with an authorized capital
of $2,000,000.
"Now, gentlemen, having said this much,
permit me to say that we earnestly re-
quest your co-operation and support in

this movement. I wish it distinctly and
clearly understood that this board does
not aim to fight any men or set of men.
We simply desire the betterment of condi-
tions and in our humble judgment we have
solved the problem.
Board Does Things.
"It is now up to you as the reu men
behind the gun. Will you do your part?
In unified organic strength you will be
as invulnerable as the Rock of Gibraltar.
No combination of capital can keep you
from securing that which is rightfully
yours. In the long leaf yellow pine belt
which is represented by the body before
me, a restoration to even normal conditions
would, so I am reliably informed, mean
an increase in revenues annually of from
$10,000,000 to $12,000,000. In Florida
alone it would an increase approximately
of $5,000,000.
"Think, gentlemen, what these figures
mean. This board has a habit of doing
things. We cannot get away from the
habit. The records will prove that "We
Will" has been a motto of our board
since its very inception and mark the
message we deliver to you today. The
same spirit that made a new and grander
Jacksonville rise from the ashes when our
city was destroyed.
"The same spirit that made possible
deep water to the ocean.
"The same spirit that made possible
this handsome auditorium.
"The same spirit that at all times pre-
dominates when between 500 and 600 of
our leading business and professional men
band themselves together as members of
this board, acting as a unit for the up-
building of our city, our country and our
"This same spirit, I say, will push
through to success the Naval Stores Mar-
keting Company.
"Now, gentlemen, in conclusion, allow
me to ask that in your deliberations you
be good enough to consider and act on
this matter. Give us your financial and
moral support. We need it and we re-
quest it.
President's Address.
Upon conclusion of Mr. Conroy's ad-
dress the annual address of the president
of the association was delivered by Presi-
dent Boyd, and is published in full on an-
other page of this issue of the Record.
Following the president's address, whih
was received with enthusiastic applause,
an adjournment was taken until 8 o'clock
in the evening, at which time a meeting
(Continued on page .)




Recommended that no New Boxes be Cut-Federal In-

spection Demanded-Marketing Company Endorsed
-Operators are Urged to Stand By Association.

During the proceedings of the Turpen-
tine Operators' Association the resolutions
published herewith were submitted by the
committee on resolutions and were adopt-
A resolution that caused considerable
discussion was one providing for de-
creasing the output by cutting no more
boxes and putting up no more cups dur-
ing the seasons of 1908 and 1909, intro-
duced by the committee on resolutions, of
which A. P. Stucky is chairman. Herbert
L Anderson, of Ocala, thought the reso-
lutions should be adopted, and that in
addition the president should appoint a
committee to see that operators generally
live up to its terms. He referred to the
fact that among the hundreds of operators
not present there were many who would
take advantage of the situation and cut
with a hope of private benefit. Senator
John W. West, of Valdosta, stated that
he was in honor bound to let one man
cut new boxes, having put him off from
year to year, but believed in the curtail-
ment of the output in every possible way.
P. L Sutherland then made an impressive
speech on the subject, saying among oth-
er things: "Mr. President, I charge you
and your executive committee with mak-
ing a grave mistake. You should have
called this meeting a year later, at which
time it would not be necessary to pre-
sent such resolutions. The bankers and
factors would do the 'resoluting' at that
time, the matter not being in the hands
of the operators. There may be some op-
erators who can sell turpentine ar, 5
cents, but I can't do it. At least, my
creditors don't think so."
The resolution, which is as follows, was
finally passed, without a negative vote,
and every possible effort will be made to
prevent the further cutting of boxes:
Whereas, the past year has been one of
exceedingly low prices in the naval stores
industry; spirits of turpentine now being
sold at prices lower than any which have
been touched for seven or eight years; and
Whereas, This condition has been
brought about largely through the lack
of selling facilities and through the nefa-
rious practices employed by certain sell-
ing agencies, which exert a powerful and
direful influence upon the market and the
naval stores industry, as a whole; and
Whereas, It is the sense of this associa-
tion that there is already in operation a
number of turpentine boxes sufficient to
produce an ample crop, in view of the
manner in which the naval stores market
has been manipulated; and
Whereas, Although the supply of timber
is limited and is constantly decreasing,
and although the demand for this product
as annually increasing, the price of spirits
of turpentine has steadily declined, by
reason of an unnatural market situa-
tion; now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That this association peti-
tion the factors to use their influence with
their individual customers and to co-
operate with this association to the ex-

tent that producers hold their operations
during 1go8-99og to a minimum, it being
the sense of this association that no new
boxes be cut, and no new cups put up
during the coming season.
Federal Inspection Demanded.
"Whereas, It has been repeatedly
charged, and such charges have been given
wide publicity, that the adulteration of
spirits of turpentine and the false mark-
ing, grading and horning of rosin has pre-
vailed and has become a serious injury to
the naval stores business; and,
"Whereas, It is alleged that these fraud-
ulent practices prevail extensively among
certain dealers in naval stores, and have
reached such proportions as to almost ex-
tinguish honest competition; and,
"Whereas, The misuse of the name
'turpentine' in connection with substi-
tutes, has in our opinion, been partially
responsible for demoralization in its
price, and that the misuse" of the name
in connection with all substitutes made
from mineral oils should be prohibited;
"Whereas, It is alleged the gauging of
spirits of turpentine is another fraudu-
lent practice which extensively obtains;
"*Whereas, It is charged that although
rosin is graded and marked by local in-
spectors, when sold by the producer, the
inspector's marks are frequently altered
afterward to indicate higher brands; and,
"Whereas, These methods and al suct
fraudulent methods in the hands of un-
scrupulous dealers afford a simple and
convenient means of stifling competition
and making unnatural the marketing sit-
uation; therefore, be it
"Resolved. That it is the sense of the
Turpentine Operators' Association, ex-
pressed in open convention assembled, that
the manipulation of the grade marks of
rosin and the adulteration and raise
gauging of spirits of turpentine is a hard-
ship to legitimate competition, which is
a serious obstacle to the prosperity of the
naval stores industry; and be it further
"Resolved, That the executive commit-
tee of the Turpentine Operators' Associa-
tion be directed to take up this matter of
adulteration, false grading, marking and
'horning' of spirits of turpentine and rosin,
with the United States Senators and Rep-
resentatives in Congress from.ach of the
States in which the naval stores industry
is carried on and urge such Senators and
Representatives to secure the passage by
the Congress of the United States of an
act to provide for Federal inspection of
both turpentine and rosin under methods
similar to those in use by the Federal gov-
ernment in the inspection of other prod-
ucts, and to provide for the punishment
of all persons and corporations found guil-
ty of making such adulterations, false
gauging, marking and grading; be it fur-
"Resolved, That mineral oil mixtures
sold as substitutes for turpentine should

A Matter of Vital Importance to Every
Citizen of Florida.

About three year- ago there was organ- i
ized in Jacksonville the Florida Life In- t
surance Company. Its personnel is such
as to assure it the most ample popular
confidence. No one living in this city
or within a radius of hundreds of miles
but would feel as secure having life in-
surance in it as if he or she had it in the
biggest life insurance company in the
Now, recently there came to light the
fact that a certain life insurance company
ordered its Jacksonville agency to forward
on to the home office in New York every
cent the Jacksonville office had on hand
over $500.00. This office, like every such,
is a sort of banking center. It is con-
tinually lending money on the insurance
it issues to those who have taken out in-
surance in it. This money is, of course,
the Florida earnings of the company. It
is from insurance sold right here. Conse-
quently when the parent company orders
this branch to sAnd all its money on to
New York, it is practically ordering the
taking out of Florida and the transfer
to New York for circulation there thous-
ands upon thousands of dollars-paid to
it right here-Florida money. This is one
of the methods by which the coterie of
money kings responsible for the stringen-
cy brought about the money famine and
abnormal times-a condition absolutely ar-
tificial and without a single good reason
for its being. How many other companies
whose homes are in the North, West and
East and which are dominated by the
same influences have done this is un-
known. If they all did, you can see at
a glance how much the movement crippled
the home market-crippled all the South.
Suppose for instance the Florida National
Bank and all our other banks were but
branch offices of the New York parent
banks, and they were ordered to keep a
cash balance of only $500.00 over actual
operating expenses, can you see what
would become of every single enterprise

n Florida and the entire South? and, if
his were the condition, but there was one
other bank, owned and operated here,
which could not be ordered to send its
-arnings on to the North, West or East,
.,oulldn't it be the course of sound judg-
ment. of absolute loyalty and patriotism,
eowi.inlnding itself not alone to a just sen-
timent, but to every dictate of sound
reason, to patronize the home bank.
Well, there happens to be a home life
insurance company right here. Should
Floridians not cling to it? It possibly was
the only company of its kind here whose
autocratic masters did not make it remit
all it had in excess of $500.00 to New
York. Its means stay here. They are
the circulating medium, or a part of the
medium which is keeping all our indus-
trial and financial machines going. It is
a home concern, in brief, handling home
money: and it does not send that money
away when a few big financiers want to
chastise a President and the American peo-
ple who love and honor that President
because he is the broadest sort of a Dem-
ocrat, although labeled "Republican." If
the people showed this sort of practical
resentment, not alone in the matter of in-
surance, but in everything else, such high
muck-a-mucks of finance would think
twice and maybe three times before they
undertook to whip us into line. For sup-
lpse every city in the country acted on
this suggestion, whence would come the
enormous moneys flowing into the coffers
of these gigantic companies from every
village and hamlet?
Filorda and the whole Southland must
take this lesson to heart.
Patronize your neighbor. Buy at home.
Yes, buy everything here from buttermilk
to life insurance.
That's the way to become rich and great.
That's the way to always have enough
money to do business with.
This city and State has been drained
into the North, East and West. Let us
fix it so it can never be thus again.



Constitution Amended-Reports Show That Prices

are Firm and General Improvement Con.

tinues in the Trade.

The October meeting of the Georgia-
Florida Sawmill Association, held in Jack-
sonville last Tuesday, was largely attend-
ed and was one of the most enthusiastic
ever held by the association.
President Ii. H. Tift. of Tifton, Ga., pre-
sided and Secretary Harrell, of Tifton,
was at his post. and, as usual, facilitated
the proceedings greatly by having all re-
ports and other information ready when
called for.
The most important matter that came
before the association was the proposed
amendment to the constitution limiting the
membership. practically, to lumber manu-
facturers. The amendment provides that
only those persons who manufacture at

least fifty per cent. of their total ship-
ments of lanmber shall be eligible to mem-
iership in this association. There was
argument on the question but the amend-
ment was finally adopted.
Front reports made by the members at
the "E'perience meeting," which is al-
ways an interesting feature of the meet-
ings of the association, it was shown that
the manufacturers are pretty well filled
with orders, with prices firm at the eur-
rent basis. A slight quieteess is at pres-
ent evident in the number of enquiries, but
this is probably due to the uncertainty of
the approaching national election. The
millmen, however, do not anticipate any

the report concerning the new marketing
company. The report of the evening meet-
ing appears elsewhere in this issue.
The Second Day.
The second day's session of the con-
vention was convened Thursday morning
with an unusually large number of oper-
ators in attendance.
The feature of this session was the adop-
tion of the resolutions, which are published
as a special feature herewith.

in the re-election of the following:
President, J. G. Boyd.
Secretary, J. A. ilollomon.

SLiberal Subscriptions.
President Boyd, upon opening the meet-
ing, made a brief but emphatic speech, in
which he called the attention of the oper-
ators to the absolute necessity of giving
to the Naval Stores Marketing companyy
both their moral and financial support.
He referred to the readiness of the outside
commercial world to contribute their full
share toward organizing the company,
provided the operators would do their part,
and shortly afterward D. H. McMillan put
the ball in motion by rising and declaring
that he wished to add $5,000 to his former
subscription, which amounted to $10,000.
C. B. Rogers, president of the Consoli-

dated Grocery Company, then came to the
front with this statement, which brought
forth applause: "I do not really know row
much I wish to subscribe in all, but today
I wish to subscribe $10,000."
"My partner," said P. L. Sutherland,
"recently subscribed for 1,500 shares of
stock, with my approval. I wish to make
it 1,500 more."
Other subscriptions came in rapid suc-
cession from the following, and before the
meeting adjourns the amount will in all
probability be immensely increased:
C. H. Davis, $1,000; S. J. Campbell, $1,-
000; Taylor County Naval Stores Com-
pany, $1.500; East Coast Turpentine Com-
pany, $800; Pritchett Bros., $1,000; Wil-
liams & Pritchett, $800; Rock Bluff Tur-
pentine Company, $500; the last five sub-
scriptions being authorized by H. E. Prit-
chett. Something over two hundred ope-
rators subscribed, and several hundred
more will be added to the list
within a very short time, many being se-
cured before the operators attending the
meeting left the city. That the money
necessary for promoting the company will
be secured is beyond question of a doubt.
Committee of Fifty.
The concluding session of the convention
was held Thursday afternoon, and at that
session President Boyd announced the ap-
pointment of a committee of fifty mem-
lers. representing all the States in the
naval stores prolueing belt, to solicit sub-

During the morning session of the Tur-

on Thursday, all business was suspended
while the following resolutions of respect
to the memory of the late J. R. Saunders,
of Pensacola, one of the founders of the
association, were read, and upon conclu-
sion of the reading the resolutions were
adopted by a unanimous rising vote:
"-Whereas, The Turpentine Operators'
Association, individually as well as collec-
tively, has been saddened by the death in
August of one of its most useful and

prominent members, Mr. J. Richmond
Saunders, of Pensacola. On this assemb-
ling oflour eighth annual convention it is
meet and proper that we should take suit-
able adcion in respect of his memory.
"Death truly loves a shining mark, and
never was this grim saying more forcibly
exemplified than in the death of our friend
and associate. Cut off in the very prime
of life and manhood, only 47 years of age,
and with the promise of many long years

I have demands right along. Make your prices right and
I will sell your TIMBER.

I keep experienced men in woods looking for stuff to fit

Naval Stores Marketing Company's

Orgnniz7tion is now Assured of Success.

Report of Special Committee is Made to Turpentine Operators' Association-Sup-

port of Consumers, Factors and Operators Is Plegdged.

When President Boyd called the evening
session of the Turpentine Operators' As-
sociation to order the big auditorium was
packed with a thoroughly representative
gathering of turpentine operators and
from the tense atmosphere which pervaded
the room, it was plainly evident that de-
termination was the purpose of the meet-
ing in an effort to perfect the organiza-
tion of the new company.
It was as if the stage was being set for
the report of the committee of the 1Board
of Trade and the Ways and Means Com-
mittee of the Turpentine Operators' Asso-
ciation, which committees have just re-
turned from a 13,000-mile trip through
the producing belt of the South, investi-
gating the condition of the turpentine
market and seeking a remedy for the res-
toration of prices of the raw material.
In explaining the purpose of the meeL-
ing President Boyd stated that the con-
vention was ready to hear the reports
above referred to and called upon Mr.
George L. Drew, chairman of the Board of
Trade committee, who responded, that the
report of his committee would be delivered
through Col. Walter P. Corbett, its see-
retary. A
Board of Trade Report.
Col. Corbett, who spoke extemporane-
ously, was ardent, vehement and able in
his remarks and spoke as follows:
"Gentlemen of the Turpentine Operators'
Association-At the request of Chairman
Drew and my fellow members of the ex-
ecutive committee of the special commit-
tee on naval stores of the Jacksonville
Board of Trade, and in response to the
invitation of your association, I have con-
sented to address you upon this occasion.
"But before going into a discussion of
the work of our committee, I desire first
to express my appreciation of the honor
conferred upon me by your association in
electing me to membership in that body
and for your invitation to address you, as
well as my fellow members of the com-
mittee for their request to speak for
This committee also desires to make
public acknowledgment to your associa-
tion for the valuable assistance rendered
it by your president, whose thorough
knowledge of the producing end of your
industry has been of inestimable value to
us in all our deliberations.
Pays Respects to Criticisms.
"First of all, I wish to pay my re-
spects in passing to certain attempted
criticisms at the. hands of interests well
known to be unfriendly to this industry.
They have attempted to make light of the
fact that on our committee of fifty there
are bankers, wholesale merchants, retail
merchants, professional men. transporta-
tion men, life insurance men, and even the
coal men and the ice men.
"The personnel of this committee needs
no defense before the tribunal of Ameri-
can business interests. Their mptives
never have been impugned, and their abil-
ity in their respective lines has been such
as to stamp them successful mem
"So much for the committee which un-
dertook to carry out the instructions of
its parent body. the Jacksonville Board

of Trade, as plainly enunciated in the
thoroughly digested and carefully pre-
pared resolution presented by the Board
of Governors and unanimously adopted
by that body at its regular meeting on
July 8.-
Slander Cannot Harm.
"No amount of slush or balderash em-
ployed by unfriendly interests will be suc-
cessful in confusing the minds of the well
informed men engaged in your industry,
nor will it achieve the purpose of intimi-
dating the commercial world or stopping
them in their efforts to do their share to-
ward the rescue of this great business.
"The Jacksonville Board of Trade fully
realized that something was the matter
in its commercial life; and, looking about
for an explanation of the situation, it
found that the naval stores industry was
in a most deplorable condition, and put-
ting their heads together with the men
engaged directly in the industry, and in
totaling up the debit and credit sides of
their ledgers, they were confronted with
the fact that that part of the Southern
territory known as the "yellow pine belt"
had, by reason of the crippled condition of
this industry, sustained an actual loss to
the business interests of that belt during
the past year amounting to from $1,.-
000,000 to $14,000,000.
Exhaustive Investigation.
"This committee therefore was directed
to make a most thorough and exhaustive
investigation into every phase of the con-
duct of the turpentine industry-and this
committee has done its work.
"In the course of its labors this com-
mittee took into its confidence some 1.400
operators, as well as the factors, some
200 timber owners, 2,100 consumers-2,-
000 of them in America, and 100 in Eu-
rope-some 500 bankers, 450 newspapers.
200 trade journals, 1K(5 commercial bodies
or boards of trade, and over 3,000 business
"As a result of these conferences, the
conviction was forced upon the committee
that the condition of your industry was
not due to natural causes, but to unnat-
ural causes; that the condition was alb-
normal and not normal; that you were
selling your turpentine and rosin at a
price actually below the cost of produc-
tion; and that your industry was getting
in a worse and worse condition as each
lot of spirits and rosin was exposed for
sale at the present ruling prices.
Adulteration and Padding.
"In refutation of the claim that these
unnaturally low prices and the resulting
imloverished condition were due to over-
production and a decrease in demand, it
was suggested to this committee that a
considerable adulteration had been mane
in last year's crop and that the statistics
were unfairly kept and maliciously pad-
der. This committee did not originate
that charge, but it feels justified in the
lwlief that the charge is true.
"That certain agencies, or interests, or
persons were during last spring indicted
by the grand jury in the United States
court at Savannah for carrying on these
nefarious practices in restraint of trade,
and ':-nce the permanent detriment of this

industry, is a fact known to the entire
reading world. But just here this com-
mittee wants to say further that it is not
concerned with the outcome of trials now
pending and that it makes no difference
to this committee whether the persons so
indicted are convicted or acquitted, fined
or incarcerated in common jails or pent-
tentaries. This committee believes that
it can await the verdict of that great tri-
bunal of justice in the profound confi-
dence that a just verdict will issue, and
of a just verdict no man but the guilty
need be afraid.
Panic Not Responsible.
"This committee feels justified in as-
suning the reslossibility for the unquali-
fied statement that turpentine and rosin
are Ibing sold bIlow the cost of produc-
tion. It has Is'een claimed in this connec-
tion that the great panic of last fall has
had a large influence upon bearing the
market to its present stage. Let us
analyze this suggestion for a moment. We
have Iwen assured by more than 400 oper-
ators that the hardware, tools, still out-
fits, mules, feed stuffs and commissary
supplies which have gone into the produc-
tion of this year's crop have cost more
on an average than last year; that the
average interest rate on money has been
greater. and yet their product is selling
for from 50 to 60 per cent less than last
year's crop.
"We know that there was a panic.
We know that certain railroads suspend-
ed the enlargement of their equipment. We
know that the building trades were less
active. And we know, too, that lumber
went down so low as to force a number
of mills to suspend operations.
"But we know also that within the past
ninety days thousands of cars have been
repaired and put back into commission,
orders have been placed for mulnons of
dollars of new equipment, and lumber has
gone up from $2 on light stuffs to $6 on
heavy stuffs, and yet the price of turpen-
tins has remained between 35 and 36
cents, despite all this reawakening of bus-
iness activity.
"Is it not remarkable that this great
panic should have been visited solely
ulsM the naval stores industry?
The Overproduction Cry.
"The cry of overproduction and large
surplus from last year's crop has gone
up from certain sources as the main
cause of the unnaturally low prices, and
in discussing this charge this committee
would ask you to take up with it the
history of this industry.
"Since the Civil War we have seen the
men engaged in this industry leave the
State of North Carolina, go into South
Carolina, on over into (-eorgia, down to
Florida. and thence to Alahama, Missis-
sippi. Louisiana and Texas, in quest of
the long-leaf pine. until today capital is
reaching out even into Mexico to assist
in taking care of the world's demand for
this product.
"During that IsMriodl we have seen
America and the whole consuming world
grow in ilmpuation and develop in ma-

trial and property wealth as was never
witnessed before.
"As far back as 1900 the consuming
world rapidly made way with a crop esti-
mated at 639,000 barrels of spirits of tur-
Iwntine, and notwithstanding the great
increase in the output of all articles in
which turpentine and rosin are used, we
are told that from last year's crop of
approximately ."5,000 barrels, some 89,-
000 barrels less than that of eight years
ago, there was a surplus of from 44,000
to W4.000 barrels.
Not for Sale at Ruling Prices.
"Of that surplus this committee has
leen informed that there was in sight at
Savannah about 19.000 barrels, at Jack-
sonville and Fernandina about 15,000 bar-
rels, and at london about 10.000 barrels,
making in all a total of 44,000 barrels;
but of that amount there were some 31,-
000 barrels which were not for sale at the
then ruling prices.
"This committee is further informed
that at the close of last season, in spite
of the claims of a surplus, the great con-
sumers of Europe were forced to borrow
from one another some quantities of spir-
its and rosin to take care of their daily
demands until a new crop should become
available. This conunittee has been as-
sured that at least some of the consumers
were offered bonuses to put forward their
deliveries until the seller could get hold
of the new crop to fill contracts of the old
"(od in His wisdom saw fit to send an
unprecedented early season, by reason of
which the manipulator was enabled to fill
those contracts. Will any fair minded
man claim that this is an evidence of a
natural market? or will he join this com-
mittee in its conclusion that it is proof
positive of a manipulated market?

Prices Fixed By Manipulators.

"If you will go with me over the course
of the spirits of turpentine market at
Savannah for the past nine years, you
will clearly see that on the average prices
are highest at that season of the year
when the crop is out of the hands of the
operators, and it is at that season of the
year that contracts have been made with
the consumers for future deliveries, and
that they have been made with the full
knowledge that before the new crop was
accessible prices would be forced down
by manipulation, and the consumer made
to pay a higher price than the operator
received for his product.
"Luckily we have had one season-that
of 190(i-which is an exception, but that
exception only proves the rule; anu jue
here I wish to say that that exception
was due solely and entirely to the organ-
ization and operation of the Naval Stores
Export Company, with whose history you
are familiar. It has been stated that this
company was a failure, but I wish to
Iorrow from my friend, Mr. IR V. Cov-
ington, the terse expression that it was
"the most successful failure" the commer-
cial world has ever known, because, for-
sooth, every operator with whom I have
talked who was an investor in the stock
of that company has stated that while he
lost some two-thirds of the money value
of his stock, the investment as a whole
paid him a net profit of from $2 to $10
for each dollar invested.
"We cannot liken this industry to cot-
ton for the season that there is from year
to year an appreciable import- of cotton
from countries employing cheap or pauper
labor, while the yellow pine states of the

THE- W Y fa

South have no real competitor, in so far
as the limited output from France and
Spain cut but little figure, if any, in
this industry.
False Grading and parking.
"1 wish to revert for a moment to the
question of adulteration of spirits and
the false grading, marking and 'horning'
of rosins. From the best evidence Jbtair.
able this committee believes tnct "ome
250000 barrels of cheap kerosene oil was
used to adulterate last ear's crop of
spirits, and that within itself would ao
far to explaining away the claim of ov=:-
production, to say nothing of the fact
that receipts at a certain port have been
padded with receipts of another port.
"This committee was instructed to in-
voke the :ad1 of the national government
in finding jui where this adulteration oc-
curred, and to provide for such legisla-
tion as would rid the industry of these
accursed practices. This committee took
the matter up, through proper channels,
with the department of agriculture on
July 10, and in due lintm :,i experienced
chemist from that department reported
to this committee" andl went about carry-
ing out his instructions to obtain samples
of spirits from the centers in the belt ana
elsewhere where shipments are assemb-
"When this chemist had about com-
pleted his work in the producers' belt
and was passing through Savannah, it is
an interesting circumstance that just
about that time the president of the ,a-
vannah Board of Trade succeeded in fur-
nishing considerable amusement to those
conversant with the situation by address-
ing a letter on Sept. 26. 1908, to the sec-
retary of agriculture asking for such an
investigation. Bear in mind that this let-
ter was dated Sept. 26, while the action
of the Board of Trade's Committee was
taken on July 10.
Ho Stop Until Protection.
"This committee promises you not to
stop until such national legislation has
been accomplished as will guarantee to
the consumer that when a barrel of spir-
its leaves a still it will come into his
hands 100 per cent pure and gallon for
gallon, with the original invoice, and that
when he buys I or K rosin, he will receive
I or K rosin.
"This committee does not believe that
the product is adulterated in the hands
of the producer or the factor, and we feel
that we have the cooperation and support
of your association as well as that of
the factors in invoking needed legisla-
"Your state inspections are all right as
far as they go, but so far as interstate
or foreign traffic is concerned, they are
"In summing up the situation, this coim-
mittee believes that no real or perma-
nent relief can or will come to your in-
dustry save through the organization and
operation of an independent buying and
selling company whose purpose will be
to use only fair and honest and honorable
methods. passing the crop from the hands
of the producer into the hands of the
consumer; and this committee offers such
a plan in the New Naval Stores Market-
ing Company, launched as it will lw by
a board of seventeen trustees whose char-
aeter, integrity and probity cannot be
questioned, and whose business acumen
and ability are an earnest and a guaran-

of which they put their brains and their
Power of Stockholders.
"No man with whom this committee
has conferred has otrered a criticism of
the plan or suggested a change or an
amendment thereto. The plan is unique
in that the voting power of the stock of
each subscriber to the agreement is fixed
irrevocably for a term of five years in
the board of trustees; hence, if any un-
friendly faction or agency should buy up
every single stock certificate issued, it
would give them absolutely no power to
vote that stock, and thus no influence in
or control over the new company.
"This committee has just returned from
a series of fourteen meetings in conven-
ient localities throughout the Ielt. and
we therefore feel confident that when you
have left this hall to night the Naval
Stores Marketing Company will be an
assured success.
"The commercial men not engaged in
the industry realize fully its vital import
to us, and yet. gentlemen, we would not
be justified in proceeding with the organ-
ization of this company until we are as-
sured that a sufficient number of opera-
tors. representing not less than 60 per
cent of the output, have subscribed to
stock in this company and mean sincerely
and earnestly to give it their unqualified

er you want this company formed, or not.
"At the risk of tiring you, I feel that
I would be recreant to my trust if I did
not rout the ridiculous suggestion that
this movement is local to Jacksonville,
and in fact nothing more than a fight be-
tween Jacksonville and Savannah.
Equal Distribution to Ports.
"This committee believed that in the
selection of five men on the board of trus-
tees whose holdings are west of the Ala-
hIma riverand by a representative each
in Tampa and Pensacola. it had guaran-
teed to the men engaged in this industry
that, in the future. the ports of Bruns-
wick, Fernandina. Tampa. Pensacola,
Gulfport, Mobile, New Orleans. Port Ar-
thur, (alveston and Jacksonville wou.,?
receive their rightful share of the prod-
uct of this industry.
"And while my mind is upon the see-
tion west of the Alabama river, I wish
to call attention to the fact that unless
some real relief shall come to this in-
dustry without delay, then the great own-
ers of round timler there will be justified
in not giving to the world the turpentine
and rosin from their trees, but wil on
forced to log their timber in the round;
and if this should eventuate in the aban-
donment of this industry, then the tur-
pentine Ielt would sustain a loss to tne
value of the price of the entire crop of
turpentine and rosin year by year.
Money and Time Spent.
Much money and time have been spent
in the effort to create the impression
that the conduct of the turpentine indus-
try is shrouded in some great mystery.
This committee knows that this is not
true. There can be no mystery or com-
plication. or even difficulty in keeping in
touch with the producer and the con-
sumer and in taking care of the needs of
of Ioth. The details of transportation,
handling. warehousing, insurance, draw-
ing bills of ladling in American terms, and
keeping up with the daily fluctuations of
exchange, are duties which can be safely

'-But can the -new company be financed?
asks the skeptic. This committee be-
lieves that a- competent answer to this
question is found in the fact that one lit-
tle concern with an operating capital of
less than $100,000 does a business of $3,-
000,000 a year.
"Why, gentlemen, 10 per cent of the de-
posits in the banks of Jacksonville alone
would take care of the remainder of this
year's crop. Where is the mystery?
"The banks are glad to handle the bus-
iness on margins of 15 per cent on tur-
pentine and 20 per cent on rosin, and in
Savannah turpentine is margined at $2 a
"But how can a set of impoverished op-
erators raise the money for their share of
the stock? This committee believes it
knows the answer.
How Money Can Be Raised.
"If by early November this new com-
pany can get on the market, we believe
that spirits would jump 10 cents per gal-
lon in a few days: and if there are at
that time, as we Ielieve there will be,
yet in the hands of the producers 125,000
Itbrrels of spirits, the increase in the price
would mean $5 a barrel, with an equiva-
lent in rosin; hence $10 a barrel, which
would mean $1,250.000 to the producers-
and it is only expected that the producers
would subscribe to about $800,000 of this
stock, and by reason of the easy payments
on stock only one-half of this amount will
be paid before the new year.
gentlemenn that is plain, old-time
arithmetic, and you know the answer.
"I thank you for your very patient hear-
ing, and in taking my seat I conclude with
the statement that I would rather be one
of the men instrumental in bringing per-
manent relief to this great naval stores
industry than to be your governor or to
represent you in congress."
Must Organize Company.
Upon the conclusion of 'ol. Corbett's
speech, which was enthusiastically re-
ceived, President Boyd called Mr. H. L.
Anderson to the platform to address the
meeting. Mr. Anderson's remarks were
witty, concise and comprehensive and he
was well received. lie pointed out to the
olwrators the necessity of concerted ac-
tion if they would save their industry. lie
said that the olsrators must organize a
strong company to market their own pro-
duction and called attention to the fact
that it was deplorable that one man or
a set of men could band together in the
form of a corporation and absolutely con-
trol the entire output of a product, dic-
tate the policies of the men who were the
producers and control the prices. He
stated that if the operators would organ-
ize a company to coimnlte with the Amer-
ican Naval Stores Company, eliminate all
petty jealousies and subject the organiza-
tion to rigid discipline, they could main-
tain prices which no trust or combination
of trusts on earth could break. He point-
e:. out the fact that the present condi-
tion of affairs was wholly and entirely the
fault of the olerators, Ibeause they have
not organized their business. He took oc-
casion to tell tihe operators that they have
repeatedly met and passed resolutions
phllging themselves not to cut additional
l-ups, thereby restricting the output, but
vo Ild iitonn lately go out and proceed to,
do thet very thing they had agreed not
to do. In conclusion, lhe said that this was
lno way to fight a trust and if they ex-
lpeted to win, they must stand together

Self-Made Man.
"Mr. Saunders was in every way a self-
made man. His life has been a struggle,
often a bitter struggle, from beginning to
end; but surmounting every obstacle and
overcoming difficulties which would have
appalled and overwhelmed the average
man, he steadily achieved success, fame
and fortune, until at last, when in sight
of the promised land of ease, opulence and
rest from his arduous labor, in the dispen-
sation of an inscrutable Providence, he
was called to his reward in a better
"Mr. Saunders was true in every voca-
tion of life. He was universally known
as an honest man, which the poet called
the 'noblest work of Cod.' He was a friend
to the operator, for he proved that on more
than one occasion, and by deeds which
speak louder than words. He impressed
himself indelibly on the business life of
Pensacola. which at some future time
should erect a monument to his memory.

His Brave Stand.
"We remember with pride and gratitude

time the Naval Stores Export Company

tion looked desperate for the future, when

The largest number of turpentine pro-

Eighth Annual Convention of the Turpen-

Every section of the yellow pine belt was

This large attendance was produced by
two direct causes; first the impoverished
condition of the industry brought about
by manipulated and unnatural markets,
and the hope of a remedy; and second by
the general feeling that a unity of inter-
ests must again prevail.
In the days of prosperity we are too
apt to forget the agencies that helped us
most in emerging from the shadows of ad-

How prone is the human mind toward in-

stop a moment to realize that the aver-

First-That the attention of the Con-
gress of the United States, by suitable
resolutions of this association, be called
to the nefarious practices of adulteration
of spirits of turpentine and false grading,
marking and "horning" of rosins; invok-
ing such national legislation as will put a
stop to such practices, thereby bringing
permanent relief to our industry, in that
the consumer-domestic and foreign-
shall by such law, honestly and fearless-
ly administered, be guaranteed that he
will receive from the hands of the seller
and exporter the same spirits and rosin,
in quality, grade and quantity, that we
ship from our stills. In short, what we
need and what we want is national in-
spection of each and every barrel of spir-
its and rosin before it is permitted to
cross a State line or is loaded upon a ves-
sel for export.
Cutting Down of Production.
Second-While ordinarily the business
should not be curtailed below the point
where is can take care of its fixed charges
and yield a reasonable earning, yet for
the lack of proper selling facilities, and
in view of the nefarious practices now
being employed by certain agencies, ex-
erting such powerful and direful influences
ulon the market and the industry, I rec-
ommend that the operations of 1908 and
19M0) le reduced to a minimum.
Since there is already in operation a
sufficient number of bixes to produce a
considerable crop, and the law of supply
and demand is permitted to play so small
a part in governing the prices for our
product, and as we have no assurances
that natural conditions will obtain in fix-
ing the prices at which the coming crop
will be marketed; and since it is not only
possible but probable that even a reduced
output will still be marketed at an un-
profitable price to the operator, and that
it is more reasonable and conservative to
preserve our tin'ber and conserve our as-
sets, and that n.t to do so might force
such conditions as would result in bank-
ruptcy of a large number of our members,
I recommend that this association petition

this quietness.
There was apparent among the mill men
a feeling that the improvement in trade
conditions is both gradual and steady, and
if maintained will prove quite satisfactory
to all. Reports showed that practically all
the mills which closed down are again in
In speaking of the meeting Mr. W. B.
Stillwell, of Savannah, one of the vice-
presidents of the association, said:
"Business in our line is better now than
it was at this time last year, both as to
prices and demand. Business is generally
and steadily improving, and I know of no
reason why the improvement should not
"The reports we heard were interesting.
They showed the members to be pretty
well filled up with orders at current prices
which are holding firm. The indications
are that these prices will remain firm at
the present output from the mills which
are now in operation."
An important matter discussed was that
of increasing the importance of the office
of secretary by providing that the secre-
tary dispense information to the various
members, acting as head of an informa-
tion bureau. Enthusiastic statements
emanated from members who have recently
visited Northern markets, these comment-
ing upon the increased demand for lumber,
which has brought a corresponding in-
crease in prices.
Plenty of Labor.
Reports from the mill men show that
there is plenty of labor obtainable at sat-
isfactory prices:
List prices are being obtained and the
larger sizes range from $1 to $3 per thou-
sand above the list. Stocks are reported
as very low all through the producing
territory, and no anxiety is manifested to
book orders. Export demands are gaining
in strength and from this source the do-
mestic market has been relieved of a great
deal of stock.

I have on hand a very large assortment of stills, ranging in size from ten
to fifty barrels capacity. I have put the prices of these stills down to just
a little above cost, in order to dispose of them. Copper is now exceedingly
cheap, and there is no reason why the price of stills should not be reduced con-
siderably. Naval stores are at a very low price, and I have decided to put the
price of stills in keeping with same. Watch this space for my price list, which
-; will be published later on. In the meantime if you are in the market for any-
thing in the still line, ask me for prices, F. O. B. your railroad station. If I
do not sell you what you want, I will make someone else sell you cheap. My
specialty is closely riveted stills, with heavy bottoms, high crowns, large
i" pouts, extra large worms and above all, stills that are guaranteed not to
lea. Drop our nearest shop a line, or wire us for your wants. Ask for our
booklet of testimonials.

Do You Take the Record?

If you do not, you are failing to read and be profited by
one of the strongest champions the "man in the woods"
has ever had in the newspaper or trade journal field. For
six years, the Industrial Record has stood on the firing
line in the interest of the producers of naval stores. How
well it has done its work every constant reader of the
paper can tell. "It has been worth hundreds of thousands
of dollars to the operators" wrote one friend to us. We hope
so. Of the past, however, let others speak. The future is
before us, and it means that the Record must keep its place
behind the guns. We shall not flinch.
All we ask you to do, and do it now, please send the
paper $3.00 for one year's subscription. It takes several
thousand dollars a year to run the Record. We want
you--you who are reading these lines to do your share--
will you do it?
Sincerely yours,


Jacksonville, Fla., 1908.
Jacksonville, Fla.
Enclosed please find $3.00, for which please send
me the Industrial Record one year from date.

Note---If you are already taking the Record and are in arrears, kindly enclose
the amount of your arrearage. We need it.

We are leaders in our line of business, the cut herewith displayed is the repro-
duction of an actual photograph taken of one of our standard 30-bbl. Turpentine
Stills connected up in our yard, showing the Kettle, Cap, Arm and Worm, also the
Gate, location of seams and rivets. It is not a seamless still, but has the fewest
seams in it of any Still on the market.
This cut represents our actual production and is not made by a cast-off cut of
any other concern.
If your profit depends on the quality and workmanship of your Still it is evi-
dent that you must get a McMillan Still. All improvements that have been made
on Turpentine Stills that have been worthy of the consideration of the Prodnuers
for the last decade are summed up in the MeMILLAN TURPENTINE STILL of which
there are more in operation today than all other makes put together, and that they
are giving perfect satisfaction is shown by the ever increasing demand; because they
are built right. Possibly a little higher than any other at first cost, but your repairs
and the risk from fire is much less hazardous.
