A large and enthusiastic meeting of
the orange and truck glowers of this
aud adjoining counties convened in
Ocala Tuesday, to devise means f r
obtaining belter returns iu the grow
ing and marketing of their product*.
The court house was the place of
their meeting.
Geu. Bullock w'sa made chairman
ami Mr. M. E. Uillet, secreiary.
On taking the chair Geu. Bullo k
made i u address full of iuterest to his
hearers. He demonstrated by read
ing exiracts from leading democrats,
including Cleveland, tbat the history
of the parly was for incidental protw -
tion, tbat the majority of the demo
cratic orange growers were for protec
tion as instanced By the action of the
state legislature of 1891, also the state
convention of growers that convened
that year at the Ocala exposition
and over which the Hon. Geo. \V.
Wilson presided.
He believed in a duty on oranges
but thought flfiy cents a box suffi
cient, and this was Ihe ouly article in
the Wilson bill to which he took ex
ception and ou the grouud that oran
ges were not a raw material but a fin
ished product.
He then cited an article from the
New York Trade Fruit Journal whieh
showed th t the leading deulers and
fruit speculators iu that city favored
restrictive measure, on the miscella
neous importation of all kiuds of tor
eigu oranges and lemons, which, be
ing dumped ou ourmaikets,depressed
the price of first-class domestic lrult.
Much of this imported fruit was of
such poor and iuferior quality that
health regulations were called ou to
protect the public against ils uuhy
geuic influences.
Such trash should be excluded.
Why not impose a duty and seep it
out. Good fruit could afford to pay a
duty, and ou such quality the govern
ment would receive more revenue
than by a low tax, permitting ail
qualities to enter our ports to compete
and lower the price of tiome grown.
Houieihing was wrong, something
must tie done to equalize and give a
basis of value to orange aud vegetable
products of the state. A close uuion
of all parties interested must be had,
and persistent effort made towards
righting the wrongs and disadvanta
ges under which these interests la
He had invited the representatives
from the Florida Fruit Exchange, in
which he believed, to be present and
a letter was read sayiug delegates
would be at the meeting but they
failed to respond.
This epitome faintly and imperfect
ly intimates the good talk winch Gen
eral Bullock made. It was well re
ceived. He said a “condition” con
fronted the orange industry of the
state, a question so alarming that he
was not prepared to answer it, for if
ruinous prices on a ero£ of 5,000,000 of
boxes confronted the producer, what
would be the couditiou of the industry
when the young groves planted came
to maturity and presented a crop ten
times the Value of the present one.
He believed in protection aud was
confident a duty of $1 a box would be
a boon to the growers. While this
was desirable it was useless to petition
congress and ask for that amount of
protection as the present members
were elected on a different platform.
He claimed protection' would ex
clude forci" 'fm : : ; • •. ii • stimu

market to tc*. Tittp \mertcaii labor

day. He believed protection made
prosperous communities, it gave labor.
Oranges were no longer a luxury but a
necessity and well paid laborers were
their best consumers.
Mr. Adams made a fine address
from his standpoint but suggested no
plan or method beyond protection to
aid and better the condition of the or
ange and truck growers of their
Mr. W. P. Haisley took issue with
Mr. Adams. He said he expected
this and could tell by the applause
which greeted Mr. Adams’ address
‘ who were who,” politically, in the
house. He suspected this as a repub
lican trick to aid in defeating the
Wilson bill in which be was a firm
believer. That the orange industry
had to take ils chances w ith the other
interests of the country. Outside
competition he did not fear. He had
visited Arizona, California aud Mex
ico, studied the situation aud felt con
fident Florida could hold her own
against them. He had grown oranges
since 1875, never made much money
out of them because the transporta
tion companies had got the lion’s
share. He either sold on the tree or
let the fruit decay. No consigner
need apply to him. If all acted as he
did the fruit would briug something
He believed in close organization of
the growers and giving the entire
crop of the state to one line to trans
port. Anew bid to be received year
ly. This, he was confident, would
bring the transporters to lower down
to 25 cent* a box, all It was worth.
Mr. H.’s remarks created a sensation
aud much merrimeut. He woke up
the convention.
Geo. Tilsou, of Leesburg, Major
Rooks, of Fruitland Park aud 8. H.
Galtskill, of Mclntosh, suggested sup
port to the Fruit Exchange, which
had done more to insure good price*
thau any institution in the s'ate..
They believed in giving it more
strength and that would help the
Hon. W. M. Bennett, of Lake coun
ty, was opposed to auetian sales.
Mr. F C. Buffutn suggested a plan
to assist the growers. Space will only
allow us to touch on It. It was organ
ization, perfect in ail Us parts Hay
the 10,000 growers cast their fortunes
in the order. Result, a unity aud
streugth that could command all out
side influences and bind them for the
good of Florida's great interest—or
ange aud truck growing. Such an or
ganization could c>mpel ower rate.
If transportation companies fallen to
meet the producers this organization

boats and build railroads and at a
price tbat would lay down a box of
fruit in New York for 26 cents.

A Well Known Ooala Firm Obangss.
We beg to call attention to the
change In the firm of Waterman &
Fuller to that of U. R. Waterman &
The change will not materially ef
fect the general business of the firm,
as the name of our p*q)tilar young
business manat the head will attest.
Air Waterman, will, as heretofore,
manage the details of the business and
have general supervision over it, and
Ihe marked success and popularity he
lias attained will assure the future of
the business.
The establishment has always been
conducted on the highest plan of bus
iness principles, fair dealing with an
eye to please its customers, aud it will
he its aim to continue in the same
line to merit its already extensive pat
ronage, and endeavor to iucrea e it.
The new firm will carry a full and
most complete line of men’s furnish
ings of every description, and will try
to make their already well known
tailoring estabishmeut second to none
in the state.
Tite Banner extends its best wishes
for the success of the new firm, and is
confident the host of friends that have
rallied around Mr. Waterman iu the
past will not be unmindful of the con
fidence they repose iu him, but will
contiuue it with increased patronage.

The Hitherto Hidden Cypress Swamps
to Yield Up Tneir Treasure.
Mr. T. R. Rickards, of Candler, who
knows Florida wet and dry, as no

all over it time and again, and selected
and surveyed lands for the F. C. A P.
R. R., and Florida (Southern railroad
for years, came out of the Ocklawaha
cypress swatnps Wednesday, where
b * upany with J. J. McTavish,
be been speudtug the past sixty
days iu estimating cypress timber.
The tale he told the Banner’s re
porter is one of immense magnitude,
and means much to Marion couuty.
It meaus this; Mr. W. N. Hmitli,
of Haginaw, Mich., lias a million dol
lar contract with the Wilson Cypress
Lumber Company to get out 200,000,-
000 feet of cypress logs, for w hich Mr.
Httiilh is to receive $5.00 a thousand
To secure this immense amount of
lumber Mr. 8. lias constt u**ted steam
lighters, equipped with 1.000 feet of
wire cables, with which the logs are
dragged from the swamps to the
river. Eaeh cable clears a circuit of
1,0 0 feet.
Besides his own plant for securing
logs Mr. Hmith lias sub-iet .contracts
to a number of persons with small* r
The inspector’s lowest estimate
placet! oa the cypress timber ou the
Ocklawaha and Silver Spring run (all
in Marion county) are 250,000.000 feet.
Tne finest aud Jarg- st timber seen was
on the run and barely five miles from
Ocala, aud calculated to cut 2 000.000
of leet to the 40 acres, or 50,u00, feet
to the acre, while the average will
be 1,(KM),000 feet to tbe forty or 25,000
feet to the acre.
A valuable feature of this immense
contract is that in the disbursement of
the $1,000,000 nine-tenths of i w ill be
paid foi labor done iu Marion county.
Mr. J J. cTavisit, who assisted Mr.
Rickards, is from the big lumber sec
tion of Saginaw, Mich., and an expert
iu ills liue, and hits traveled the world
over iu his business anil says the cy
press inspected biats anything be lias
ever seen.
The Wilsou Lumber Mills, which
are uow located at Palalka, where the
logs of this contract will herb ped into
lumber and shipped to till parts of the
world, were formerly in the i tint tar
