Letters Of A Florida Citrus
Grower To His Nephew
From Jonas Arland at Hammock
0roves, Florida, to Samuel
Newcomer, Bentonville, Mich,
You have put a wrong construction on my last letter. I didn't mean yon
to believe the fellows speculating in fruit in Florida all were crooks and
confidence men. Some are not above reproach, but there are others who
are Just about ordinary business men with average human fallings.
However, as a grower I haven't much use for any of them. For instance,
there ia one fruit buyer I know pretty welL He is about as decent a citizen
as you will find; has the usual one wife and some mighty nice children.
If he were doing something else for a living he would be an asset to his
community. As it Is, he is a liability and I'll tell you why:
Last December Oscar Harland sold him his crop of Valencias for two
dollars on the tree, Oscar being hard up and needing money mighty bad.
Now when this Christian gentleman came to pick these oranges this spring
he figured up his expense and considered that they cost him about three dol dollars
lars dollars plus a nickel packed and on the cars. So, needing a little money right
et that time himself, he proceeded to take a long (?) profit and sold them
right quick to net himself about three dollars and ninety cents a box. Now,
you might wonder why I should kick about this. It is not because he cleared
eighty-five cents profit on his investment and risk, but I do kick because he
didn't know what the fruit was worth. Our own Association had two cart of
Valencias Just sold in the same town where he sold his, which the Florida
Citrus Exchange had sold for us to net us Just about six dollare at the pack packing
ing packing house. This well meaning gentleman Just naturally knocked the bottom
out of prices for several days in the town where he sold this fruit, and
cost us and a lot of other growers considerable money.
I am citing you a single instance, but each season furnishes hundreds
of Instances of this sort. Most of these speculators haven't any real line
on the markets and the actual worth of fruit. In the last few years we
have had at times some remarkably good prices, but I'll tell you honestly,
none of us really knows yet what Florida oranges and grapefruit are wortn.
as measured by the law of supply and demand. Just because of this hit-or-mlss
I have seen cases where speculators in some years bought seedling
oranges at fifty cents a box, and less, from growers who were plumb up
against it, and then sold them for a quick profit of maybe ten or fifteen centa
a box, when the growers' actual cost of production maybe ran to seventy seventy-five
five seventy-five or eighty oents a box. The big trouble with these speculator fellows
is that generally they have no interest in the growers' cost of production
or in obtaining the value of the fruit except so far as shows them a profit
on their purchases. More than once they have furnished the paving stones
of good intentions that let the citrus business go straight to the Devil's
Once upon a time some used to argue that they served a purpose In fur furnishing
nishing furnishing ready money to growers who Just had to have it; but that time la

have our own crop-loan organization, the Growers' Loan & Guaranty Com Company.

You are your own boss, or at least that good looking wife of yours lets
you think you are, and it Is up to you to make your own decision. Whaterer
you decide to do with our fruit is no skin off my nose. However, I am reason

have made a real success of growing fruit; that is. Join the ranks of the

From Jonas Arland at Hammock
Groves, Florida, to Samuel
Newcomer, Bentonvflle, Mich,
You never were more wrong in your life than when you figured that I and
others who belong to the Florida Citrus Exchange are warped In our views
and "bitter" toward speculative fruit buyers.
The situation is Just this: There is only Just so much fruit each crop
year and no matter how hard we may compete to get fruit we can't increase
the crop. It is not like two manufacturing concerns putting out, say, vacuum
cleaners where the harder they compete the more machines both sell because
the market is thus enlarged. On the contrary, the more the co-operative
movement spreads in Florida the less fruit there is left for the speculators
to handle. As the movement grows, consequently speculators are bound to
be put out of business. In view of this it is only natural that they should
fight and fight hard in order to keep themselves in business. It is a pretty
sorry poodle dog, that won't try to give a bulldog a tussle if he is caught In
The co-operative movement in Florida has been, and is, steadily growing.
A considerable number of fellows who have made a living out of the frat
game have been caught in corners more or less. Some of them have fought
pretty hard and pretty bitterly. One of the favorite methods is by propa
ganda." That is a rather nice-sounding word the war gave us to cover e
pretty nasty sort of activity. In a big organization like ours, with about
five thousand growers, there are bound to be a certain number of folks who
will believe part of everything they hear. Therefore, when some of my
fellow-members hear some rumor that we are paying our directors at Tampa
ten thousand dollars a year, instead of a measly little per diem to cover ex expenses
penses expenses that most men wouldn't let drag them away from their business, they
will get excited and mill around a bit, until finally someone of them comes
out with it, and the real facts can be brought out and the matter laid at rest
These things are awkward and at times confusing. We live them down,
in the course of time, and go right on ahead. Just here, I want to tell you we
are going ahead right along.
However, you cannot talk about a man, or a set of men, behind his
back or their backs and obtain any large portion of love and esteem wheft
the talk gets known. Also, the very fellows who at first were misled by
such propaganda are apt to feel pretty hard when they find our the tnn facts.
I don't want you to believe we have reached the millenium here in
Florida and that our nice wooly grower-lambs are lying down in peace with
the speculative interests. No, not if the lambs know it Facts is facts, how
ever; and the growers having learned the fruit speculators mean no good
to the industry in which the growers have their money, tied up, feel Justified
in setting forth the real state of affairs to those who, like you, are lacking
experience in these things. That does not necessarily imply any bitterness
The School of Experience don't put out correspondence courses; and I
don't know if you can be expected to get much good out of these letters.
However, I find the writing of them is good for me. Previously, I hare
thought out a lot of these things in a hary sort of way, but writing you has
served to focus my mind and I see them more clearly than ever before. I
believe I am a better and more loyal Exchange memben for having written
