GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE
To the Honorable Senate and House of Representatives of the
Twenty-second Legislative Assembly Under the Constitution
of 1885, of the State of Florida:
I am honored by the privilege of presenting in person my mes-
sage to you, the lawmakers of the State. I do so not as a
matter of form, but as an earnest solicitation for the most cordial
relation between the Executive and the Legislative branches of
our government. We are comrades in a common cause, sharing
the greatest responsibility and at once the largest opportunity
that ever came to the leaders of our State. We are called upon
at a time when the State is on trial, to lay new foundations under
our economic, political and moral structure, thus preparing the
way for a progress that is permanent. May Almighty God give us
wisdom to see the way, and unflinching courage to do our duty.
FINANCE AND TAXATION THE UPPERMOST PROBLEMS
The uppermost problem is finance and taxation. In every en-
deavor of the State, whether in behalf of education, the public
health, conservation of our natural resources, or governmental
organization, our whole economic future hinges upon a sane fiscal
and sound financial policy.
Abnormal conditions resulting from the boom left their mark
on public as well as private life to such an extent as to endanger
our financial security. For this we blame no one. It is a logi-
cal outcome of the spirit of the time. But the results are with
us. We find ourselves in a time of peace burdened with war-
time equipment. We have made advances on every front (1000%
in public improvement in ten years), but at a cost that must be
paid. Our expenditures have exceeded our receipts to an alarm-
ing degree,-approximately two and one-half million dollars for
the year 1928. While the State as such is free from bonds, we
are foolish to ignore the fact that counties and municipalities are
loaded to the uttermost, while taxes have reached the danger
point. There is a deadline in cost of government which, when
reached by the taxing powers, marks the decline of a State's
prosperity. In spite of high taxes, so high that many have ceased
to pay, bond defaults are imminent in towns, districts and coun-
ties throughout the State. "Unwise," someone says, to release
this information. But it is folly to dodge facts which will ulti-
mately force their attention.
OUR FINANCIAL TASK
The gap between receipts and expenditures must be closed:
our obligations must be discharged; our financial integrity must
be preserved; a sound fiscal structure must be established; our
tax burden must be adjusted; and with the intelligent leadership
and patriotic co-operation evident in this Legislature I know that
these things can be done and Florida's place established in the
front ranks of this advancing nation.
MUST WORK ALONG MANY LINES
We must not hope to accomplish this by any one act, or any
single policy, but by sane, consistent, co-ordinated action along
many lines with a definite purpose.
(1) Economy in public expenditure, with business-like organi-
zation and supervision in governmental activities.
(2) Conservation of our revenue and its direction in the
proper channel.
(3) An equitable distribution of our tax burden with a col-
lection system that is simple in operation and certain of results.



(4) Safeguards against unreasonable debts and obligations
in the future.
These things will lift our government from financial distress
and hasten by years the usual prosperity of our State.
ECONOMY
Economy in public expenditure is fundamental. Unnecessary



E



OF REPRESENTATIVES April 3, 1929

expenses must be eliminated. We have lost a sense of the value
of the public dollar and forgotten that little economies amount
to big savings. Useless offices must be abolished; employees
used as needed and because of their fitness for the task to which
they are called. There is a sharp distinction between a pension
roll and a payroll. Many economies are being employed by your
present administration and you can safely depend on a saving
of at least a half million dollars per year in the administration
of the State's affairs. We are well on the way now, but there
are charges fixed by law which no administration can reach and
which no budget commission can change.
As an illustration, we have three special assistant Attorneys
General, drawing $15,000 per year and expenses. Their purpose
has been served and I respectfully recommend the repeal of the
statute creating these offices. Many inferior courts have been
created throughout the State, prosecuting officers multiplied and
salaries increased beyond the bounds of reason. This condition
should engage your attention.
Our Circuit Judges within four years multiplied from twenty
to forty, while the budget for these courts jumped- from $479,850
to $752,450. As an attorney, I would be the last to abolish a court
that is needed. No one advocates that policy, but patriotism and
common honesty demand that the unnecessary go. I am aware of
the fact that it presents a delicate and difficult question and
calls for rare courage and patriotism on your part, but the issues
should be met as the judges meet their issues on the bench. I
recommend the immediate appointment of a commission of five,
composed of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, president of
the Bar Association, president of one of our universities, an out-
standing business man, and one of our circuit clerks and re-
quested to impartially redistrict the State in keeping with pres-
ent requirements, and to report their findings back to this session
in time for action.
An adjustment of fees and compensation of county officers is
in order. A condition which "places in a single county office in
the name of compensation as much as that of the entire Supreme
Court or that of the Governor and his Cabinet is intolerable.
Records and reports should be required and a reviewing au-
thority provided that would put a brake on the number of em-
ployees and the amount of their compensation, securTng justice
to State and officer.
BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS
Multiplication of boards and commissions with powers usually
granted is a menace from an economic and political standpoint.
The administration of State affairs becomes decentralized, super-
visory control is lost. The boards consider themselves independ-
ent enterprises and lose sight of the public business as a whole.
Many of our boards and commissions are responsible to them-
selves alone and have greater powers in the expenditure of public
funds than the Governor and his Cabinet.
Our Constitution provides for an executive department com-
posed of the Governor and six administrative officers who form
various boards, and in whom are vested the administration of
the State's affairs. It was never contemplated that any depart-
ment should assume absolute control of the revenue arising
from any special levy or fees, but that all moneys should be held
by the treasurer and- disbursed on appropriations made by law
and upon order of the Comptroller countersigned by the Gover-
nor. Our practice is in some respects like farming out the taxing
power with the amount of receipts as the only limitation upon
the spending power.
Every board of commission should be anchored to the cabi-
net, with the head of such department holding office at the will
of the Governor. No moneys should be expended except on ap-
propriation made by law and in regular constitutional manner.
If we expect to avoid waste from independent and overlapping
activities and hope to establish business efficiency, administra-
tive authority must be centralized and responsibility definitely
fixed in the men whom the people inevitably hold accountable.
Some of our departments should be consolidated and many ac-
tivities co-ordinated. The Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission, the Shell Fish Commission and the forestry work should
be brought together. Without lessening the emphasis on the
work of either, the activities of the Health Department and the
Hotel Commission should be co-ordinated. From the standpoint
of economy and efficiency as well, our structure of government
should be made simple and direct as possible.



BUSINESS METHODS IN GOVERNMENT
It is well to keep government out of business, but business,
principles should, be employed in government. A modern, uni-
form system of records and accounting, including cost account-
ing, should be established throughout the State, with an auditing
system that would insure at least an annual audit of the different
subdivisions of the State, the purpose being not only to prevent



E














defaults but to establish efficiency in governmental operations.
Thousands of dollars are lost each year to the State not only
through defaults but by waste resulting from loose business
methods.
A rigid budgeting should be required. Shifting and inter-
mingling of various funds, merging current expenses into future
obligations should be prohibited and records so kept that the
people may see how and for what their moneys are expended.
OFFICE OF BOND TRUSTEE SHOULD BE ABOLISHED
Our scattered financial control must be centralized. Bond trus-
tees have cost the State untold sums of money. This office should
be abolished and the State Treasurer made the trustee for every
outstanding bond issue. As it is, there is no central authority in
the county or the State where public obligations can be ascer-
tained or the people find assurance that trust funds to discharge
such obligations are being maintained.
PURCHASING DEPARTMENT
All purchases of the State, except those of a minor nature,
should be centralized in one department. We thus substitute ex-
pert service for indiscriminate and irresponsible buying, secure
lower prices by larger quantity purchases, centralize the point
of contact between the bidder and the State, fix responsibility for
determining price, establish standard specifications, and assure
all discounts.
CONSERVATION AND DIRECTION OF REVENUE INTO
PROPER CHANNELS
But we must go further to relieve our present embarrassment.
The next step is. of greater moment and calls for your most
thoughtful consideration. It involves a change in our fiscal
policy and seeks to place certain of our revenues where most
needed. I therefore respectfully suggest the advisability of im-
pounding the gasoline tax now returned to the counties and that
paid to the schools; that portion of the automobile license tax
not used by the Road Department; personal tax on automobiles;
a reasonable tax on motor busses, into a common fund to be
administered by the State Treasurer as trustee for the retire-
ment of road bonds and school board obligations. In this pro-
gram three things must be taken care of. First, The present
revenue of the Road Department must be kept intact. Second,
equity must be done the several counties. Third, the State can
assume no obligation except to administer the funds thus im-
pounded. It is believed these points can be safeguarded. The
plan, of course, will be subject to objection. Any program will
be. I ask you, however, to consider it in the spirit of finding
something better, if this is not acceptable. Something of this
nature must be done if the financial integrity of our State is to
be preserved and justice done our taxpayers.
TAX COLLECTIONS
Our fina-ncial structure is no stronger than our methods of
collection. Our system must be simplified and the results made
certain. To this end, returns should be made compulsory. Red
tape now essential to a valid assessment should be done away
with. The levy should be held valid if not contested within a
fixed time; unnecessary cost in advertising as well as fees in
making sales should be adjusted; the time should be shortened
within which a tax lien can be enforced and the procedure made
as direct as possible to the end that a valid tax deed would be
certain.
It would facilitate the collection of personal tax on automobiles
to require this payment as a condition to the issuance of a li-
cense tag. To this end, it would be well to have automobile li-
cense tags distributed by the tax collector with the cost of is-
suance greatly reduced. As a matter of fact, the personal prop-
erty tax on automobiles should be eliminated and the license tax

election. A constitutional amendment, however, would, of course,
be necessary to accomplish this result.
Steps should be taken to collect our delinquent taxes and bring
lands sold for taxes back on the books. We should, therefore,
by appropriate procedure, validate the liens for all outstanding
taxes and provide for issuance of legal deeds.
PROTECTION AGAINST FUTURE OBLIGATIONS
We should next restrict the power by which counties and dis-
tricts burden themselves with financial obligations: First, by
limiting the bonded indebtedness to a reasonable proportion of
the assessed valuation, and next requiring a more general expres-
sion of the taxpayers as a condition to the issuance of bonds.
BANKING LAWS AND REGULATIONS
Our banking laws and regulations must be amended to furnish
greater protection to the depositors and stockholders as well.
Loans to anyone should be limited to a reasonable percentage



of the capital stock and surplus. No one not worth his double
assessment should be accepted as a stockholder. The examining
force should be increased and stricter supervision guaranteed.



HIGHWAYS
Membership in the Road Departments should be held sacred to
the trust to which it is committed, and the Road Department
should be kept free from the temptation of political influence.
The law should make it impossible for any member of the de-
partment to be a candidate for any office while holding that
position or within six months thereafter.
I would respectfully caution you against the danger of in-
discriminately placing roads under State maintenance. In order
to maintain a uniform, balanced and equitable program this
matter should be left largely to the members of the Road De-
partment, who must view the road system as a whole. Any other
program furnishes a temptation to trade, and the danger of
converting our road funds into a pork barrel proposition.
In view of the outstanding obligations on the Road Depart-
ment and the large amount of unfinished road work, it would
seem unwise to divert to other channels any portion of the
revenue now going to the State Road Department.
It is time to consider a program of beautification of our
highways. Rights-of-way should be secured with reference not
only to present but future traffic and beautification as well.
Florida makes its bid to the visitor. The roadside is the travel-
er's front yard and largely reflects the character of the people.
AGRICULTURE
Agriculture (and -I use the word in its broadest sense) is
the basic industry of Florida. The prosperity of the State will
be measured to a large extent by the propserity of agricultural
endeavor. Sound economy forbids that we retreat in our aid
to this enterprise. Experiment work should be carried on to a
larger degree. Extension work emphasized and greater safe-
guards provided against plant and animal pests and diseases.
The greatest problem in connection with agriculture is mar-
keting. More attention must be given to the home market. We
are importing approximately 75% of what we consume while
much of our produce is rotting in the fields not far from the
place of use and need. The facilities of our marketing com-
missioner should be .enlarged with the actual purpose of bringing
our local producers and consumers together. A definite pro-
gram will be suggested.
STORAGE WAREHOUSES
The law providing for storage warehouses should be amended
so as to authorize co-operation between the State and individuals
or organizations. The present law is impracticable but seeks re-
lief necessary to our agricultural welfare. Storage warehouses
are essential to a sound marketing system.
GREEN FRUIT LAW
Vigorous steps must be taken to protect the citrus industry
against the violators of the green fruit law. This has cost the
State in the past season millions of dollars. The men who thus
sacrifice the industry should be subjected to strenuous measures,
even to the extent of having their places of business padlocked if
necessary and treated as outlaws.
INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT
Industrial development must be encouraged. This is a counter-
part to our agricultural endeavor, in furnishing a home market
for our produce and employment for labor. I suggest the wisdom
of relieving from taxes for a period of years new enterprises not
coming in competition with industries already located. Other
states in the South are doing this now.
LABOR
Agriculture, Industry and Labor all go hand in hand. Our
aim must be to promote the welfare of our workers of all classes.
We must safeguard their health and safety from industrial
hazards and have reached the time when many industries should
carrlyin an orderly fashion the wreckage of men as well as of
machinery. The well-being of the State is measured by the well-
being of the average man.
FREIGHT RATES
One of the big factors in agriculture is freight rates. We have
seen one agricultural enterprise after another forced to the wall
because of unfair rate adjustment. This problem is so large
and complicated that it cannot be handled by the individual
grower. It would be wise to establish a commission to make a
study of our entire rate structure so that the inequalities be
brought forcefully in the name of the State to the attention of
the transportation companies and our Interstate Commerce Com-
mission. Florida's future, not only from an agricultural but
from an industrial standpoint, depends to a large extent on this
relief.
RECLAMATION OF THE EVERGLADES



Reclamation of the Everglades has developed into a national
as well as a State problem with the Federal Government giving

promise of co-operation that will insure the completion of this
project in a proper way. In view of these prospects, it would
be well to authorize your present board or such as may be con-
stituted to accept such terms and conditions as Congress may
establish and fully co-operate with the Federal Government in
carrying out this program.
In the administration of the drainage program the people in
the area should be brought in closer contact with the drainage
operations, either by way of representation on the board or by
the establishment of an intermediary board that will give the
people the contact to which they are entitled.
EDUCATION
Perhaps no branch of the State's development is in greater
distress than our school system, the first difficulty being that of
finances, with schools forced to close throughout the State. It
is hoped that the amendment of our laws on taxation will furnish
relief in this respect. It is certain that our school system must
go on, and it is a matter of great embarrassment that any boy
or girl in the State should be denied an eight months' term
with teachers properly trained and fairly paid.
I commend to your careful study the report of the Educational
Survey. Our schools are tied by the Constitution to an obsolete
system, relief from which should be given at the earliest pos-
sible moment. We should place in the office of the Superintend-
ent of Public Instruction a director of building to advise with the
Superintendent and approve all buildings erected for school pur-
poses. Enormous waste can be saved and greater efficiency ac-
complished by this program. There should also be provided in
the office of the State Superintendent a director of finance em-
powered to organize and institute a system of uniform, practical
budgeting, accounting and auditing in the several counties of the
State.
The Textbook Selection Law should be amended so as to pro-
vide for a selected group of books on each subject, rather than an
exclusive selection, and to allow for retiring obsolete or undesir-
able text books.
CONSERVATION
The Game Law must be amended with a'view always to con-
serving the game, and at the same time removing arbitrary and
unreasonable regulations with a fair adjustment of license fees.
I would suggest closing the August hunting season and make the
open season for hunting deer and turkey concurrent. Breeding
grounds must be extended and propagation of game and fish
fostered in the most effective manner. I invite your thought to
the most practical common-sense and business-like method of
conserving this great resource.
FORESTRY
Re-forestation has been too long neglected. We are rapidly
depleting what has been and is yet the State's greatest money
producer, without adequate effort to replenish it. It would not be
amiss to employ a reasonable severance tax to this purpose.
LAW AND LAWLESSNESS
Florida must make no surrender to nor compromise with the
enemies of constituted authority. Agencies to establish legal
proof of crime and to enforce the law should be strengthened



I



OF REPRESENTATIVES April 3, 1929

and not weakened. Florida should build on permanent values
and not risk her future on a game of chance or a program of
legalized gambling.
CONCLUSION
I am aware that this message presents a difficult program, but
I have faith in its practical significance and trust you as safe-
guards against error. I know it is submitted only in a spirit of
unselfish and constructive service.
We must work out a plan to meet the necessities of the hour
as well as the requirements of Florida's new day now near at
hand-a day of progress that will endure. This we cannot do iU
we allow selfish interests to hold sway, or fail to put first things
first. Nor can we succeed by partisan strife or sectional align-
ment. Thank God, these lines have lost their place in the
geography of Greater Florida. As individuals and public officers
worthy of the name, all Florida is ours-her counties and cities,
her farms and factories, field and forests The welfare of every
citizen, his happiness or sorrow, success or failure, is ours. We
are one people, one in hope, one in purpose, one in destiny, and
shall build for the future in the spirit of Macaulay:
"When none was for the party
But all were for the State,
When the rich man helped the poor
And the poor man helped the great."

REPORTS ON SPECIAL COMMITTEES.
The Committee on Efficiency made the following report:
House of Representatives, Tallahassee, Florida, April 4, 1929.
To the Honorable Samuel W. Getzen,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Sir:
We, your Committee on Efficiency, beg leave to make a pre-
liminary report as follows:
We find conditions unprecedented in the history of our State.
Hordes of people are frantic for employment. It presents a
pathetic condition. It is astounding when the membership of
this House is appealed to and implored to use their influence--
not in the interest of economy or improved public service in



efficiency in spending public money or obtaining efficient service
alone, but to secure employment for applicants because the
applicants need the employment, and the membership of the
House, in a large measure, intensify the situation by joining in



11



the clamor to secure places for these innumerable applicants-
a most natural thing for a humanitarian to do under these most
extraordinary circumstances, and, when augmented by the usual
desire to reward people for their political service, past or pros-
pective, your committee can not ignore these conditions and
function freely. It must be remembered that the membership
of this Committee are common human beings, also creatures
of circumstances, and that in their hearts, too, a common weak-
ness exists, and the House of Representatives need not expect
economy inor improved efficiency under these conditions with
the clamor of the people who are frantic; and in this con-
nection may we respectfully request that the membership of
the House employ utmost discretion in making their recom-
mendation to this committee, and we may as well state frank-
ly that a minimum number of attaches with a maximum amount
of efficiency seems an impossibility.
We are examining stenographers and out of a great many
we may be able to organize a force of capable men and women,
but these adverse conditions are actual and not theoretical
and militate woefully against the progress and purpose of this
Committee in the proper discharge of its duty.
Under these conditions and circumstances we have made
certain recommendations for employment as stenographers and
other attaches as follows:
Wallace F. Erwin-Superintendent of Stenographers Dept.
Ben Clemmons-Assistant to Superintendent.
Pat Kelly, Jr.-Messenger, Stenographic Room.
Hamp Padgett-Assistant Journal Clerk.
Bert Floyd-Assistant Journal Clerk.
R. E. Oliver, Jr.-Assistant Journal Clerk.
Cecil Gatlin-Messenger for Sergeant-at-Arms.
Walter Warren-Verifier.
Price Ford-Verifier.
Bill Bryant-Bill Binder, Stenographic Room.
And the following stenographers: Rosa Stanaland, Mildred
Hollis, Mary Lee Canady, Alma J. Etheridge, Sidney Caldwell,
Ruby D. Harvell, Bill Barber, Vera Carroll, Alice Otis, Jessie
Horn, Dorothy Rice Jennings, Bessie Kinsey, Emma Gibbs
Rogers, Marguerite Scull, Mrs. W. J. Bivens, Evelyn Tucker,
Alma E. Fisher, Mrs. Leona Cates McElwain, Florence B. Mer-
shon, Verdie O'Hara, Kate McDaniel, Helen J. Miller..
We also wish to report that we have not completed the list
of stenographers.

Mr. Chappell moved that the report be accepted as read.
Which was agreed to,
Mr. Stephens moved that the rules be waived and that he be
permitted to introduce a bill at this time.
Which was not agreed to.
REPORT OF SELECT COMMITTEES.
Mr. Kanner, Chairman of the Committee to which was referred
House Bill No. 1, asked that the Committee be given until to-
morrow to make its report.
Which was agreed to.
Mr. l\fatthews moved that two hundred copies of House Bill
No. 1, as finally approved by the Committee, be printed.
Which was agreed to.
The Speaker announced that he would excuse from further at-
tendance upon the House until Monday: Messrs Hagan, Entz-
minger, Robineau, Booth (Duval), Prine, Lee.
The Speaker announced that he would appoint the following
on the Radio Committee, as provided in House Resolution No.

EXPLANATION OF VOTES
My vote is "No" because I do not believe House Bill No. 1
gives full publicity to local or special laws to the extent that
was contemplated by the people who voted to adopt the Consti-
tutional amendment.
W. J. BIVENS of Hillsborough.
Explanation of Ogilvie's vote:
House Bill No. 1 does not make compulsory the publication
once in counties where there is a newspaper of general circula-
tion.
CLAUDE OGILVIE.
Explanation of vote:
I vote against the passage of House Bill No. 1 on the ground
that the Act does not provide for sufficient compulsory notice
to the people to be affected by special or local legislation.
The alternative manner of publication permitting the notice to
be posted at the Court House and two other places is as a
practical matter iinsuffiient. It can be employed' so that
clandestine measures may be introduced. It is especially insuffi-
cient in the more populous counties. In these larger counties
the Court House and other 'public bulletin boards are invaribly
so completely covered with masses of notices, announcements,
and pamphlets, that any notice can be surreptitiously inserted
and in a manner to escape observation. This possible doubt
practically can be made to nullify the spirit and purpose of the
compulsory amendment. I cannot support a measure which can
be employed for the continuance of the past evils of special and
local legislation and which the people wished to prevent when
they passed the Constitutional amendment.
ROBINEAU of Dade.
Explanation of vote:
I vote against House Bill No. 1 or the substitute therefore in-
troduced by Mr. Kanner was because it was not compulsory that
one publication be made in a newspaper in counties having a
newspaper of general circulation.

He was born at Walnut Grove, Alabama, April 29, 1870. His
father was Captain J. E. Murphree. His wife was Jeennie
Henderson of Tallahassee, Florida.
He won a competitive scholarship to the Peabody Teachers'
College which enabled him to get a college education and
graduated in 1892 with Bachelor of Arts degree. Not satisfied, he
studied another year and received his Master Degree from the
same institution in 1894. The degree of Doctor of Laws was
conferred upon him by the University of Alabama and by
Rollins College of Florida.
In 1895 he was appointed Professor of Mathemantics at the
Womans College at Tallahassee and in 1897 was promoted to
the Presidency of that institution. He came to the University
as its President in 1909 and until his death, he gave it his
very best. His worth of influence did not stop in the Southland
as he was elected President of the National Association of
Presidents of State Universities for 1927 and 1928.
While always a busy man, he found time sufficient to take
an active interest in his church. He was a moving spirit in the
State Baptist Association and for two years was its President.



In all his efforts, uprightness, integrity, ability and faithful-
ness were beacon lights that gave strength, force and success
to his every endeavor.

E OF REPRESENTATIVES 21

His ambition was to be a teacher and when fifteen years old
began teaching, and reached the top of his chosen profession
when he was appointed President of Florida's State University.
He took little interest in politics, but he was suggested by the
late William Jennings Bryan for the Presidency of the United
States.
His life is strongly exemplified in the following lines:
"Its the human touch that counts in life,
The touch of your hand and mine
That means far more to the sinking soul
Than bread or shelter or wine,
For with the night the shelter is gone and
The food lasts but for the day,
But the touch of the hand, or the sound of a
Voice remains with the soul always."
Therefore
BE IT RESOLVED by the Senate, the House of Representa-
tives concurring, That in the death of Dr. Alfred Alexander Mur-
phree, Florida has lost a man of brilliant intellect, a scholar of
culture and learning, an official of forceful character, and a
Christian of aggressive leadership.
RESOLVED FURTHER, That we hereby express to the family
of the deceased our most sincere sorrow in their great bereave-
ment.
RESOLVED FURTHER, That these resolution be spread
upon the Journals of the Senate and House of Representatives
and a copy, attested to by the Secretary of State, under the great
seal of the State, be sent to the family of the deceased.

Sir:
Pursuant to authority vested in me as Governor, under Pro-
visions of Section 28 of Article III, of the Constitution of the State

No. 867, the same having originated in the House of 1927 and
being entitled as follows:
"An Act to regulate the sale of milk, cream, and the sale or
manufacture of ice cream within the State of Florida."
This bill is unnecessary and its passage would only provide
a lot of trouble and would be unenforceable unless there were a
hord of inspectors or supervisors appointed, which is unnecessary.
For the above stated reasons I have withheld my approval from
this measure.
Very Respectfully,
JOHN W. MARTIN,
Governor.
And House Bill No. 867, of the 1927 Session, together with the
veto message, as contained in the above report was taken up.

Pending consideration thereof it was moved that the commit-
tee report be accepted and that the veto of the Governor be

Employ an Attorney at Law as the Legal Adviser of Such
County and to Represent It in All Litigation and Court Proceed-
ings in which the Said County May be Involved, and to Fix the
Compensation of Such Attorney for all Such Services."
This Act limits the compensation paid to the County Attorney
for all services rendered the county in bond issues and other-
wise, and fixes the maximum salary of $5,000.00 per annum. The
matter of his compensation should be left with the County Com-
missioners of his county, to be paid in accordance with the work
that he does, as some bond issues require greater work and more
legal acumen than ordinary business, and the amount of com-
pensation varies for bond work and, therefore, should be left
for the County Commissioners of his county to fix.
For the above stated reasons I have withheld my approval
from this measure.
Very respectfully,
JOHN W. MARTIN,
Governor.
House Bill No. 678 of the session of 1927 was read in full.
Mr. Crouch moved that House Bill No. 678 Session of 1927 be

Hon. H. Clay Crawford,
Secretary of State,
Capitol.
Sir:
Pursuant to authority vested in me as Governor, under Provis-
ions of Section 28 of Article III, of the Constitution of the State
of Florida, I transmit to you with my objections thereto House
Bill No. 1274, the same having originated in the House of 1927
and being entitled as follows:
"An Act providing for a special educational fund to be appor-
tioned to the various counties for the maintenance of the public
free schools and supplying free text books in said counties, and
amending Chapter 10254, Laws of Florida."
Section 3 of this bill is clearly unconstitutional and is in viola-*
tion of Section 16, Article III of the Constitution. This bill is
also indefinite and vague and does not state how the proceeds
from this tax levy should be applied.
For the above stated reasons I have withheld my approval
from this measure.
Very respectfully,

READING OF COMMUNICATIONS
The following communication from Hon. Fred H. Davis, At-
torney General, was read and ordered spread on the Journal:
Tallahassee, Fla., April 13, 1929.
Hon. Samuel W. Getzen,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
House Chamber,
TalTahassee, Florida.
Sir:
I am in receipt of a copy of House Resolution No. 15 by Repre-
sentative Gillis, of Walton County, adopted by the House of
Representatives on Friday, April 12th, in which my opinion is
requested giving my construction of Chapter 12097, Acts of 1927,
Laws of Florida, being Sections 1987, 1988 and 1989, Compiled
General Laws of Florida, relating to the printing in pamphlet
form of all general laws passed by the Legislature and the dis-
tribution thereof by the Secretary of State.
The statute in question provides that, immediately after any
General Act of the Legislature shall become a law and filed in
the Office of the Secretary of State, the Secretary of State shall
cause to be printed in pamphlet form a sufficient number of
copies thereof to supply each Clerk of the Circuit Court of this
State twenty-five copies thereof, which copies shall be distributed
by the Secretary of State upon the requisition of the several
Clerks of the Circuit Courts of this State, to supply each of the
Circuit Judges resident in the respective counties, and each of the
Judges of all other Courts and the Clerks thereof, if any, in the
respective counties with a copy of such laws so printed in
pamphlet form.
The statute further provides that the Clerks of the several
Court, or the Judges, if they have no Clerks, shall at all times
until bound copies of such laws are printed, keep at least one
copy of such laws on file in his office, which copy shall be open
to inspection to the public, and copies of all laws shall be made
by any person so desiring.
Provision is further made by the statute for the procuring of
the printing of such laws in such manner as will secure the
speediest and most expeditious printing and delivery thereof
consistent with good workmanship.
A "pamphlet" is defined by the dictionary as being a small,
unbound document usually on some current topic, consisting of
one or more sheets fastened together.
It will be noted that the statute in question provides that all
the General Laws passed by the Legislature shall be printed in
"pamphlet" form; it is, therefore, obvious that the intention of
the Legislature, in the enactment of the 1927 Act, was that the
Secretary of State should cause each law of a general nature
passed by the Legislature to be printed as a separate document
consisting of one or more sheets fastened together and of con-
venient size to be distributed in accordance with the mandate of
the statute.

52



The statute further provides that the printing of such laws
in pamphlet form shall be done "immediately" after any General
Act shall become a law, and it would seem that this contemplates
that, when a General, Act of the Legislature is signed by the
Governor, the Secretary of State should have such General Act
printed at the earliest possible moment in order that printed
copies thereof may be available for distribution in like manner
and form as Bills are printed separately and as single docu-
ments for the use of the Legislature during its session.
Past experience with the Legislature has shown that many
General Laws are enacted each session which, by their terms,
are made to take effect immediately instead of taking effect the
constitutional sixty days after the Legislature adjourns, as pro-
vided for by Section 18 of Article III of the Constitution of the
State of Florida, and, as a result of this practice, many General
Laws were found to have taken effect and to have had a bearing
on practices of the Courts without the persons affected thereby
having had the opportunity to learn what the terms of the enact-
ed laws were.
Section 6 of Article XVI of the Constitution provides that the
Legislature shall provide for the speedy publication and distri-
bution of all laws which may be enacted, and Chapter 12097,
Acts of 1927, was evidently enacted to carry out the purpose and
intent of Section 6 of Article XVI by providing that each separate
General Law, as soon as it was signed by the Governor and filed
in the office of the Secretary of State, should at once be printed
and the required number of copies thereof distributed to the
Clerks of the Circuit Courts and to the Judges of the Court for
their information as soon as possible.
I am of the opinion that the statute in question does not con-
template a delay in the printing of such General Laws until a
number of same can be published in one volume after the Legis-
lature has adjourned but that this Special Act contemplates that
such General Laws shall be printed from time to time during
the session of the Legislature and afterwards as soon as possible
after the Governor has approved the same and filed the Acts with
the Secretary of State.
Trusting that this is the opinion desired by the House of Repre-
sentatives on the matter referred to, I have the honor to be.
Very respectfully,
FRED H. DAVIS,
Attorney General.
Also-
The following communication was ordered spread on the
Journal.
To the Honorable Speaker-
Will you kindly announce the following:
The Justices of the Supreme Court of the State of Florida
have made available to the members of the Legislature the
use of the Library of the Supreme Court.
If any of the members desire to use the Library during the
evening, arrangements for such use may be made with the
Marshal of the Supreme Court, Mr. L. A. Perkins, by telephon-
ing him, number 836, during the day, or 173 in the' evening.
The Librarian will be available upon such arrangement to
run the elevator and help the members in finding the books
required for their research work.
Mr. Lewis in the chair.
REPORTS OF SPECIAL COMMITTEES
Report of Special Committee on Printing appointed by the
President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Rep-
resentatives and by the Governor was read:
The aclj)urned meeting of the Special Committee on Printing
met in the office of the Chairman of the Committee, March
4th, 1929, at four o'clock. Present: W. C. Hodges, Chairman,
8th District; W. W. Phillips, 14th District; Representative
Samuel W. Getzen, Sumter County; Andy Edwards, Alachua
County; W. W. Wester, Jackson County; and W. A. Register,
Leon County. W. B. Bishop of Jefferson County, absent.
The Committee, after having exhaustively examined into
and studied the comparative cost of printing for the State by
private enterprise and under State ownership and direction are
of the opinion that a material and substantial saving would
be had to the people of the State of Florida by the State owner-
ship of its own printing plant, to be located at the capital.
It is therefore recommended by the Committee that appro-

Which amendment reads as follows:
In Section 1, line 13 (printed bill), after the word "or" insert
the following: "If there be no such newspaper then."
And respectfully requests the House to reconsider their action
as to said amendment.
Very respectfully,
ROBT. W. DAVIS, JR.,
Secretary of the Senate.
Mr. Kanner moved that the House of Representatives again
refuse to concur in Senate Amendment to Committee Substitute

Speaker to confer with a like committee on the part of the Senate,
to adjust the difference.
Which was agreed to.

the result that those who are financially unable to observe such
holidays are handicapped in the transaction of legitimate busi-

States, but am sure that there are thousands of people in the
State of Florida who cannot afford to quit working for a sufficient
time to observe the holidays we now have.
Due observance of Florida's admission into the Union could be
had through public addresses in the schools and civic centers of
this State without making this date a legal hoilday.

bill. It seems to me that we have too many legal holidays now.
The multiplicity of holidays serves to lessen the dignity of holi-

I wish to be recorded as being opposed to creating holidays in-
discriminately.
The number we have now often works inconvenience to the
business of the State. JOHN T. LOWE.

record as disapproving any effort of any municipality, district
or county repudiating any bond, time warrant or debt that is
regularly and legitimately issued, and further pledges itself
to do all in its power to prevent any such repudiations or setting

Tallahassee, Florida, April 17, 1929.
Hon. Samuel W. Getzen, Speaker,
House of Representatives,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Sir:
The provision for creating and abolishing Criminal Courts of
Record in the several counties of the State of Florida is Section
24 of Article V of the Constitution, and such laws do not fall
under Section 21 of Article III of the Constitution, relating to
local or special laws. Therefore the principles enunciated in
Middleton vs. St. Augustine, 42 Fla., would apply, and a bill
offered to create or abolish a Criminal Court of Record, or any
other court created under the Constitution would not have to
be advertised in the locality where the court exists.
In the Middleton case above cited the Supreme Court said that
since Section 8 of Article VIII of the Constitution expressly
authorized the Legislature to create and abolish municipalities,
that laws passed by the Legislature under Section 8 of Article
VIII did not fall within the purview of Section 21 of Article
III. It, therefore, appears to me that applying the same line of
reasoning to Section 24 of Article V of the Constitution, bills
authorizing the creation of Criminal Courts of Record which
come under Section 24 of Article V are not required to be ad-
vertised.
I am assuming for the purpose of this discussion that a Crimi-
nal Court once established under Section 24 of Article V of
the Constitution can be legally abolished by the Legislature
after once being created. Criminal Courts created after the
amendment to Section 1 of Article V of the Constitution adopted
in 1914, fall under the provisions of Section 1 of Article V of
the Constitution, and no doubt can be abolished at will by .the
Legislature. At the same time, bills falling under Section 1 of
Article V of the Constitution would probably be also within
the purview of the Middleton case and would not have to be
advertised.
Respectfully submitted,
FRED H. DAVIS,
Attorney General.
