GOVERNOR'S PROCLAMATION.

The proclamation of the Governor convening the Legis-
lature in extraordinary session was read, as follows:

State of Florida, Executive Department.

A PROCLAMATION BY THE GOVERNOR.

To All, and Singular, the Senators and Members of the
House of Representatives of the State of Florida:










3



Whereas, The unprecedented immigration into the State
of Florida and the great development of the varied natural
resources of the State now in progress imperatively require
the early enactment of laws relating to useful enterprises
and to the public welfare; and
Whereas, Among the subjects that should have prompt
legislative consideration are:
An act creating the Monroe Water Supply District.
The enactment of local legislation that has been adver-
tised in accordance with the law.
The enactment of needed legislation of a municipal
nature.
And Whereas, In view of the extraordinary conditions
of growth and progress now existing in Florida the best
interests of the State will not be properly conserved by
waiting till the next regular session of the Legislature, in
April, 1927, for legislation that is now so essential to the
welfare of the people of the State;
Now, Therefore, I, John W. Martin, Governor of the
State of Florida, by virtue of the power and authority
vested in me by the Constitution of the State, do hereby
convene the Legislature of the State of Florida in extra
session at the Capitol, in Tallahassee, at 10 o'clock A. M.
on the seventeenth day of November, A. D. 1925, for the
purpose of considering the enactment of laws on the above
mentioned subjects, and such other subjects as the welfare
of the State may require and the Constitution of the State
permits.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and
have caused the Great Seal of the State of Florida to be
affixed hereunder, at Tallahassee, the Capital of the State,
this 2nd day of November, A. D. 1925, and of the Independ-
ence of the United States of America the one hundred and
fiftieth year.
(SEAL) JOHN W. MARTIN,
Governor.
By the Governor, Attest:
H. CLAY CRAWFORD,
Secretary of State.

Mr. Davis moved that a committee of three members be
appointed by the Speaker to notify the Governor that the
House is organized and ready for business, and that a like
committee be appointed by the House to notify the











4



Seriate that the House is organized and prepared to pro-
ceed to the transaction of business.
Which was agreed to.
Thereupon the Speaker appointed as such Committees,
the following: To wait upon the Governor, Messrs. Davis
of Leon, Stone of Baker, and Harrell of Gadsden. To in-
form the Senate: Messrs. Williams of Leon, Combs of
Sarasota and Bishop of Jefferson.
The said Committees then retired and after a brief ab-
sence returned, reported that they had performed the re-
spective duties assigned them and were discharged.
A Committee from the Senate consisting of Senators
Hodges, Singletary and Overstreet appeared.at the bar
of the House and infornied the House of Represenitatives
that the Seniate is organized and prepared to transact
bulsiesiis.
