FLORIDA FOR SUGAR
We have heard from time to time,
a source of sugar supply for America,
of the great possibilities of Florida as
or even for the world. A recent num
ber of "Facts about Sugar" reproduces
an address by Dr. Blackman, a sugar
man of intelligence who seems to
know what he is talking about, In the
course of which ho says substantially:
"There are three fundamental con
dltlons for the successful cultivation
of sugar, climate, soil, and labor."
Tho climate of Florida is the best
in tho United States. A largo part
of Florida Is better than Louisiana,
where sugar has been grown success
fully time out of mind. There 13 an
abundant rainfall, which fortunately
comes during tho summer when the
growing cane needs it most, and Is
largely lacking during the winter
months when the cape Is riponirig and
might bo injured by It. And finally
there Is plenty of sunshine. Florida
Is famous as the land of sunshine.
There Is a considerable variety in
tho soils of Florida. There are some
0000 stjuaro .miles of Everglade bot
tom lands of the richest character
that would make most excellent sugar
land. Some of this will have to bo
drained, but that can be easily and in
expensively done. There is another
6000 square miles of high, middle and
low hammocks covered with a heavy
growth of hard woods.
While not so good, this is also sult-

able for cane.
Another 6000 square miles is known
as the prairie or Savannah region,
which is excellent land.
Altogether, it is well "within tho
bounds of truth to say that Florida
has 15 or 20 million acres of land
eminently suitable to the cultivation
of cane." These lands can be depend
ed on to give about 30 to 40 tons of
cane to the acre, which- is moro than
Cuba or Porto Rico or Louisiana does,
though it falls short of Hawaii. Tho
richest cane ever analyzed by the
Washington Bureau of Chemistry
came from Florida. Unfortunately,
we are not given the definite figures,
nor aro we told how many tons of
cane It takes to make a ton of sugar.
Tho sugaP content however is said 'to
be fully equal to that of Hawaii.
Except for harvesting, much labor
would not bo required. Tho land is
level) free from stone and otherwise
easy of cultivation.
Tho harvesting season fortunately
falls In tho winter when tho demand
for agricultural labor throughout the
States is at Its lowest. Owing to its
mild climate there Is a large influx
of labor to Florida during tho winter
months, and probably very largo quan
titles of It could bo brought In from
tho frozen and hibernating north to
meet tho requirements of tho grinding
season. -Meantime there Is a con
siderable amount of natlvo negro
labor available at reasonable wages.
Land may be found In various parts
of tho world which meets moro or
loss fully tho demands of sugar cul
ture, but nowhero clso Is there a
solid body of unoccupied, or scantily
occupied land, which meets theso de
mauds In anything like tho degree that
If the production of cane sugar is
profitable anywhero, it will bo prof
itable in Florida.
"But tho successful cultivation of
sugar in Florida will depend on our
people moro than on our soil and
climate." Though it costs four times
as much to raise an acre of cano in
Hawaii as In Cuba, three tlme3 as
much aB in Louisiana, and twice as
much as In Porto Rico, tho cost of
the cano produced is less In Hawaii
than In Louisiana or Porto Rico and
Httlo more than in Cuba. The rea-
