GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.


EXECUTIVE OFFICE,
TALLAHASSEE, January 8, 18T9.J
Gentlemen of the Senate and Assembly :
It affords me much pleasure to welcome you to the Capital;
and you may rest assured that in all your endeavors to pro-
mote the welfare of the people and advance the material inter-
ests of the State, you shall have my hearty co-operation.
Your duties and responsibilities are great, and you have been
invested with power and authority which should be used for
the benefit and for the honor of all, without regard to locality,
race, or political affiliation. I sincerely trust that your ses-
sion will be characterized by peace, concord and wisdom,
and that your legislation will be such as to make you merit
the blessings of God and the thanks of the people you repre-
sent.
Many of our sister States have suffered severely from the
yellow fever, but Florida has been spared, and for this, for our
abundant harvest, decreasing taxation, improved educational
advantages, exemption from civil strife, and other evidences of
public and private welfare, we have much cause for gratitude
and thanks to a merciful Providence.
The total floating indebtedness of the State, January 1st, 1877, was..$249,788 41
Of this amount there has been paid by the present Administration.. 184,215 60
Leaving a floating indebtedness against the State for claims which
accrued prior to Jannary 1st, 1877, of ......................... $65,57 81
This indebtedness consists of the following items:
Juror and witness scrip issued prior to January 1st; 1877 .......... $44,706 15
Other expenses....................................... ...... 2,945 75
Floating debt, reported by Comptroller Cowgill......:: ..:: 7,932 01
Oreenback scrip in circulation in excess of amount reported....... 9,986 00
The deficiency for 1877 is.............................. ...... $18,828 60
The deficiency for 1878 is..................................... 22,756 4;
There i now of Comptroller's Warrants and Treasurer's Certifi-
cates, issued during the years 1877-8, outstanding .............. $10,905 04



, \








22



This does not include an unknown amount of greenback scrip
in the hands of the people.
The current expenses of the State for 1877 were $212,530.31,
and for 1878, $133,970.36.
The bonded debt of the State is as follows:
Bonds of 1871 ................................................. .. $350 000 00
Bonds of 1873................. ................................ 925,000 00
Bonds of 1857, with interest to 1874, held by private parties ...... 8,200 00
Convention bonds ....................................... 1,000 00
Total Bonds .............................................. $1,284,200 00
Of this bonded indebtedness there is
"In the Agricultural College Fund................... 106,300 00
In the School F nnd ...................... ........ 24,500 00
"-"i the Seminary Fund........................... 83,400 00
lu the Siking Funds.............................. 14;3,900 00-$508,100 00
Leaving in the hands ol'private parti,- ......................... .$716,100 00
The bonded debt has been decreased $21,400 within the past
"two years.
There is now held by the Indian Trust Fund, bonds of 1857,
-amounting to $132,000, with interest. The State has unad-
.justed claims against the General Government, which are now
:in a process of settlement, and it is confidently expected that
'these claims will be amply sufficient to cover the bonds now
held by the Indian Trust Fund.
For a more extensive statement upon all the matters per-
" training to finance, I refer you to the reports of the Comptrol-
ler and Treasurer.
ENGRAVED COMPTROLLER'S WARRANTS.
The late Treasurer Foster turned over to his successor, in
engraved Comptroller's warrants, known as greenback scrip,
$58,485.14. This, as appears by the report of the late Comp-
troller Cowgill, exceeds the authorized issue to the amount of
$21315. He also refers to an unknown quantity outstanding
in the hands of the public. Since that time there has been
funded, of this greenback scrip, $22,000 in the bonds of 1873,
,and the scrip destroyed. There is now in the Treasury $45,213,
and.$1,258 known to be out, which has been examined and
registered. To these amounts add the amount funded in
bonds of 1873, which makes $68,471; deducting from that
.$58,485, received from the State Treasurer, leaves $9,986;








23



adding to this amount $21,315, separated by the late Comp-
troller as having been issued in excess of what should be
properly outstanding-it appears there has been improperly in
circulation, $31,301. There is still an unknown quantity in
the hands of the people. No clue has been discovered to the
origin of this grave irregularity. I would respectfully suggest
that a committee be appointed to examine into this matter.
Also, I would recommend that the greenback scrip now in the
hands of the State Treasurer be immediately canceled.
In my last annual message to the Legislature, attention was
called td that portion of Comptroller Cowgill's report referring
to a discrepancy between the amount of engraved Comptrol-
ler's warrants received by R. H. Gamble, as previous Comp-
troller, to be exchanged by him for written Comptroller's war-
rants and Treasury certificates, and the amount of written
warrants and certificates so exchanged.
Acting under a request in my message, committee were ap-
pointed by both branches of the Legislature to investigate
this matter, with full powers to make the investigation
thorough. These committees made full reports, which may be
found in the Journals of that session. From these reports it
will be seen that while there was no record evidence of such
exchanges, there was other and sufficient evidence to convince
the committees that the exchanges had been regularly and
fully made as required by the law.
Comptroller Cowgill reported that there were $39,087 of en-
graved warrants of which there was no record evidence of ex-
change, and that there were $39,253 of written warrants and
Treasury certificates that might have been exchanged, and
which were then outstanding and had never been presented for
payment.
When it is remembered that seven years have elapsed since
these exchanges took place, that Comptroller Cowgill used all
means to discover the existence of the written warrants and
certificates, and that they are still outstanding, the correctness
of the committee's conclusions must be apparent, and that the
State has suffered no wrong; and justice to a faithful public
officer demands that I should make this communication in the
same way in which your attention was called to the subject.

LANDS SOLD FOR TAXES.
In 1877 a law was passed allowing those whose lands had
been sold for taxes and bought in by the State and county until
January 1, 1879, to redeem the same, without being subjected
to any penalties for such delinquency. The object of this law
was undoubtedly to enable those who had been unfortunate,
and whose property had been sold to the State or county, to
become repossessed of their lands, and thereby cause this spe-
cies of property to become a source of revenue to the State.
I regret to say that but comparatively few have availed them-
selves of this liberal opportunity. It therefore devolves upon
you to determine what is to be done upon this subject.
SUSPENSION OF TAXES.
The Legislature of 1877, although desirous of reducing
the burthen of taxation, could not accurately estimate what
saving would result from their legislation, and not being able
to agree as to the amount to which the taxes could be reduced,
adjourned without making any reduction in the rate of taxa-
tion. Sympathizing with the people in the heavy burthens
they were called upon to bear as a legacy of former adminis-
tions, and having ascertained from the Comptroller and Treas-
arer that there would be sufficient funds in the State Trl'I.,.-u,
to meet all the necessary requirements of the Government in
accordance with the appropriations, and in view of the fact
that the Constitution requires that the Legislature shall
provide for raising revenue sufficient to defray the expenses of
the State," after consultation with the members of the cabi-
net, on the 7th day of October, A. D. 1877, I directed the
Comptroller to order the Collectors of Revenue of the differ-
ent counties throughout the State to suspend the collection of
a portion of the taxes for that year, to-wit: one mill on the
dollar for the tax to pay appropriations for 1877, generally
known as the State Tax proper; one mill on the dollar of the
tax levied to pay the interest on, and for the ultimate redemp-
tion of the State Bonds of 1873, called the General Sinking
Fund Tax; and the tax to pay the interest upon and form a
Sinking Fund, for the redemption of the Bonds of 1871, known
as the Special Sinking Fund Tax, was made uniform through-








25



out the State by being placed at one mill on the dollar, making
a reduction of the State Tax for 1877 of about two and a half
mills on the dollar. This resulted in a saving to the people of
$77,245.00. In the year 1878, seeing that another and further
reduction of the State taxes could be made without injury or
detriment to the credit of the State, or violation of the Con-
stitution, I, on the 17th of August, 1878, directed the Comp-
troller to order the Collectors of Revenue to suspend the col-
lection of two mills on the dollar of the State Tax proper; one
mill of the General Sinking Fund Tax; and the Special Sinking
Fund tax was again made uniform at the rate of one mill on
the dollar, making a reduction of about three and a half mills
upon the dollar of taxes for 1878. This saved to the tax pay-
ers the sum of $103,149. The amounts saved to the people of
the State of Florida by the suspension of the above men-
tioned portions of the taxes for 1877 and 1878, aggregate
about $180,394. I now respectfully request that you legalize
the above action by legislative enactment.
UNIFORMITY OF TAXATION.
This, in my opinion, is one of the most important questions
you have to deal with. It is naturally the desire of all that
the taxes should be reduced to the lowest figure possible. But
a certain amount of revenue has to be raised annually to meet
the expenses of the government and to pay the interest on our
bonded indebtedness. To distribute this burden equally
amongst all the tax-payers of the State should be the desire and
aim of all lovers of a fair and impartial government. The pres-
ent revenue laws of this State do not seem to fully meet these
requirements. Under the present system of assessment, a great
deal of property is assessed at a greatly less valuation than
the "usual selling price the annual crop would sell for in the
market, and in some instances at less than half the value of the
crop, and scarcely one-tenth of what the owner would de-
mand for the property were he to offer it for sale. This
is a great injustice to those tax-payers who return their prop-
erty to the assessors at a legal and just valuation. This diffi-
culty seems to exist in other communities as well as ours; and
different States have adopted different methods to remedy the








"26



evil. Some have adopted the plan of having appraisers accom-
pany the assessors and require them to visit and examine in
person every piece of real estate, make diligent inquiries about
all personal property, and to make an appraisement of all such
real and personal property to the best of their judgment.
Other States have adopted other measures, but all tending to
the same end, namely, to ascertain the true value of all prop-
erty. The State of Kentucky has adopted the plan of provid-
ing the tax assessors with suitable blanks, under proper head-
ings, who furnish one of these blanks to each tax-payer, requir-
ing him to make out a complete schedule of all his property,
real, personal and mixed. Upo, these blanks are printed cer-
tain questions to be asked by the assessor and answered by
the tax-payer. An oath is appended to this blank, and when
the proper answers to the questions have been given and en-
tered upon these blanks in their proper columns, the tax-payer
is required to subscribe thereto, after having it read to iim by
the assessor. These lists are then filed with certain county ofli-
cers, subject to examination and inspection by the grand juries,
or any citizen, thus furnishing ready proof if any t:Lx-iyicr
should peijure himself. From these lists the assessor makes
up his tax books. 1 understand that this mode of assessment
increased the assessed value of the taxable property of Ken-
tucky more than 20 per cent. the first year after its adoption.
It is thought by many, competent to judge, that if this plan
were adopted by this State, it would increase the valuation of
the property in a great degree. The valuation of taxable prop-
erty in the State, as returned by the assessors for 1878, was about
$29,250,000. This valuation is the basis for taxation. If the
plan mentioned above, or some other feasible and simple one,
were adopted, by means of which something nearer the true
value of the taxable property could be reached, the assessed
value of our taxable property would be gr'ac.ly increased, and
the rate of taxation could be very much reduced, the true con-
dition of the State would appear, and those desiring to make
their homes in Florida would not be deterred on account of
high taxation.










LICENSES.
Before leaving the subject of taxation I would call your at-
tention to the manner of issuing licenses to such persons who
.are required by law to pay a license tax. The collection of
this license tax could be greatly simplified by having all licenses
to expire on a certain day to be fixed by law, permitting those
who desire to procure a license before the expiration of the
year to pay a pro rata amount of the annual license, according
to the length of time intervening between the date of the
,license and the expiration of the license year; this would sai
,Collectors of Revenue much trouble and be an improvement
upon the present system. It has been suggested by several
persons, that our license laws be so amended as to place the
-issuing of licenses in the hands of the County Commissioners,
who could have the supervision over and prevent the issuance
-of certain licenses to improper and immoral persons, and to
require persons who apply for a license for certain occupations
to give a pledge-bond to keep peaceable and respectable places
,of business. The subject is worthy of grave consideration.
COMMON SCHOOLS.
I can but congratulate the citizens of the State upon the pres-
ent condition of our public schools, and the progress which, as
*shown by the accompanying report of the Superintendent of
Public Instruction, has been made during the past two years.
Since the security of our government rests upon the mental
.and moral enlightenment of its citizens, it is one of the first
,duties of the statesman to foster and encourage every object
which tends to this end. Experience proves that a system of
public schools supported by the State is the most efficient means
of reaching the minds of the masses. Any 1umeasi rn, therefore,
which it is believed will invigorate and strengthen this depart-
ment of our government should, receive most .serious consid-
eration. '
The question as to the propriety of. givinginstruction in the
higher branches in schools supported at the public expense, is
at this time attracting considerable attention in some of the
States. Taking into consideration the partially, developed con-
dition of our system, the conclusion forces itself upon,us, that









28



it is our first duty to establish and put in operation good and
efficient common schools. I would respectfully recommend,
therefore, a change in the law limiting the public school in-
struction to the common school branches as suggested in the
Superintendent's report.
One of the defects of our common school system before alluded
to is the tendency in its practical workings to draw an undue
portion of the funds to the towns and more densely popu-
lated localities, to the exclusion of the remote and sparsely set-
tled sections. The division of the counties into small districts,
the plan at that time under consideration to correct this evil,
has since been found to be impracticable on account of our
unequally distributed population. While it works well in the
older States, and would doubtless result in advantage to the
more populous portions of ours, yet as a rule it could not be
successfully carried out. I think, however, the change above
recommended of limiting to the elementary branches.would be
a step in this direction, for, as is generally known, the author-
ities have been led to make the unjust distribution complained
of in order to foster the high schools in the towns. This change,
and a rigid enforcement of the law of apportionment as it now
stands, are all, in my judgment, necessary upon this point..
At the time of the report of the former Superintendent made
December the 31st, 1876, returns from only thirty-three of the
counties were on file in the office of the Department. Since
that time the records from all except one have been received,
and show an increase in the scholastic population of nearly
fourteen thousand.
For the past year our State received from the Peabody Fund
$3,900, which was applied as stated in the report. The amowit,
it will be noticed, is considerably less than that allowed us for
the preceding year. This, however, is not due to any appre-
hension of the Trustees that our public schools are not receiving
proper encouragement, but from the fact that there has been
a falling off in the income of the Fund.
AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
At your last session I recommended that a committee be ap-
pointed to investigate the action of the old Board of Trustees








29



with reference to the location of the College, to ascertain if the
law had been complied with in that particular. Upon this -ug-
gestion an act was passed creating a new Board of Corpora tors
to take charge of the Fund, and to remove the College to some
more central and accessible point.
On account of a litigation which followed as to the right of
possession, and which continued for some time, but little has
been done by the new Board of Trustees. As to their action.
however, in regard to changing the location of the institution,
I-would refer you to the appendix to the S iipl.- intcn'l nL' re-
port, in which an account of their jir',c.-.din,3 is given. I
would also call to your favorable consideration the remarks
made by the Superintendent in relation to this and the Semi-
nary fund.
In reviewing this subject, I feel that as much has been done
during the present administration as even the most sanguine
could have exl..l-'t.1. Our schools have been increased several
hundred, a large number of ,Ihili.hit has been enrolled, and a
longer school term been given, and at the same time, better
teachers employed than ever before since the organization of the
system. These facts are all set forth in the Superintendent's
report, and are worthy of careful attention.
PENITENTIARY.
In accordance with an act of the Legislature, approved
March 3d, 1877, the Adjutant-General was .authorized to hire
out the convicts then in the Penitentiary, and such others as
should be sentenced to that institution d(inin' the time the
contract might be in force. Agreeably to that law, the Adju-
tant-General advertised for proposals to lease the convicts for
a term of two years. Three bids were received, and the one
most favorable to the State was accepted. By the terms of this
bid, the contractors, after giving bonds for the faithful per-
formance of their contracts, were to have all the prisoners then
in the State Prison, or out at work under contract. and all
others that should be sentenced to the State Prison during the
term of their lease, upon the condition that the State would
pay to the contractors three thousand dollars the first yc:r.
and two thousand dollars the second year, the State pa.-ing all









30

expenses of transportation of prisoners from the respective
jails to the convicts' camp. The contractors having given the
necessary bond the 6th March, 1877, the convicts then in
hand were turned over to them, and since that time all who'
have been convicted in the Circuit Courts and sentenced to
the State Prison, have been delivered to them as speedily as
possible. The cost to the State of the convicts for 1877 was
as follows:
For expenses of Penitentiary before the convicts were leased to con-
tractors........................................ .................$1,841 52'
Amount paid to contractor as pur agreement........................ 3,000 00W
Amount paid for transportation and sheriffs' fees and guards....... 3,159 10'
Total cost for 1877.............. ........ .....................$8,000 62
For the year 1878 the cost of the State Prison has been as
follows:
For amount paid contractor as per aereement......................... ,000 00
For rnsprtationl of convicts, sheriffs' fires, expenses of guard rand
incidental expeur s .............................................. 4,691 03
Total cost for 1878....................... .....................e8,59 0(
By direction of the Board of Commissioners of State Insti-
tutions, on the 22d day of October, 1878, the Adjutant-Gen-
eral advertised for bids to lease convicts for the term com-
mencing March 6, 1879, and ending January 1. 1, l- 1. Several
bids were received. On the 15th December the bids were
opened, and as none of them were satisfactory to the Board,
the Adjutant-General was instructed to continue the advertise-
ment until January 1, 1879. This was done, and on the 2d
instant the bids were opened, and the one by which the M;ilto
would be relieved of all expenses connected with the State
Prison was accepted. This bid is as follows:
After giving good and -iilicieiit bond for the faithful per-
formance of the contract, the contractor to receive all convicts
now on hand at his camp, and to take all others that may be
convicted during the term of his lease at the county jails of
the respective counties, and to pay all expense of guards and
transportation, and to pay the State one hundred dollars per
annum. This will be a great saving to the State, and I trust
be as conducive to the health and comfort of the-convicts as
possible. Below you will find an exhibit of the annual ex-








31



pense this class of people have been to the State during the
past four years:
For 1875................$...$39,769 99 I For 1877................... -4 00 6
For 187 .................. .. 21,638 06 j For 1878.................. 4,591 03
And if the contractor, whose bid for leasing the convicts for
1879 and 1880, gives a good and sufficient bond, the State, for
the next two years, will be at no expense whatever on this ac-
count.
For a detailed statement of the management of the State
Prison, and for the general working of this law, I refer you to
the report of the Adjutant-General.
ASYLUM.
By an act of the last Legislature, the buildings formerly oc-
cupied as a State Prison were ordered to be converted into an
Asylum for the indigent insane of the State, and the sum of
three thousand dollars was appropriated to put said buildings
in a proper condition and furnish them. Accordingly, the Ad-
jutant-General commenced making the necessary changes, but
it was soon found that the amount appropriated was inadequate
to complete the work and enable him to carry out the benefi-
cent designs of the law. Under the circumstances, it was de-
sirable that the buildings be completed at as early a day as
possible. A.t L.'linglvy the Adjutant-General was allowed to
draw upon an unexpended balance then belonging to the Peni-
tentiary, rather than go into the market and borrow at a high
rate of interest, to finish paying for the work which had to be
done to put the Asylum in a fit condition to receive patients.
The Asylum was ready for the reception of lunatics about
April 1, 1877, when patients were placed in the institution, and
since that time the number has been constantly increasing, the
whole number admitted into the Asylum since it was opened
being 86, of which 34 are white males, 24 are white females, 13
are colored females and 15 are colored males. There were re-
ceiving support from the State, December 31, 1876, 45. There
were received at the Asylum during the years 1877 and 18'8,
90. Of this number 12 have died and 19 have been discharged,
leaving now in the Asylum 55. In addition to these, there are
now in the hands of private parties receiving support from the
State 49, making a total of 104 of this unfortunate -class de-









32



p'.ndlin. upon the Stlte for support. This shows an increase
of over one hundred per cent. in the past two years. Should
this increase continue, it will be necessary to make additional
improvements at the Asylum. For a detailed statement of the
improvements made and those which it will be necessary to
make, I respectfully refer you to the Adjutant-General.
It has been more expensive to maintain this institution than
was expected, partly owing to the fact that there were more
indigent lunatics in the State than the Legislature was aware
of, and because more was required to be done to make these
poor people comfortable than was first contemplated, therefore
the appropriations made in 1 T7 for that purpose were ex-
hausted by October 1, 1877. Under instructions from the
loar'i of Commissioners of .t.Lt: Institutions, I borrowed
enough money to i1. ia y the expenses of the Asylum for the
remainder of the year 1877.
After the appropriation for the maintenance of lunatics for
t87 was exhausted, it was thought best for those who had
charge of lunatics at home, and who, under the law, were
allowed to have a certain amount, not to exceed one hundred
and fifty dollars per annum, for their support, to hold their
claims and await the action of the L.'ji-:1 tuLr. I would there-
fore recommend that an amount -ctthN:iint to cover those de-
";.'-rl1 claims, and to pay the amount borrowed by me to carry
on the Asylum the latter part of 1877, be appropriated. For
':,.- amount of those deficiencies I refer you to the report of
the Comptroller.
I would respectfully i..-, -I that you take into considera-
tion the propriety of ,.j.l.-1I', that portion of the law which
allows it to be optional with persons to keep their indigrenit in-
sane at home and receive one hundred and fifty dollars per
annum or to send them to the Asylum. In my opinion this un-
ril iiuna: class of individuals would be far better off at the
Asylum, where they would receive proper nursing and be under
the care of a physician. If this was done, doubtless cures
could be c tli. et..l in many instances, and the proper authorities
would always know that those who were receiving support
from the State as hmnatics were really entitled to it. Before
leaving this -l.,il .i I would also suggest that some advantage









33

might possibly result to this institution and make it less ex-
pensive to the State, if the law was so amended as to allow
patients to be received into the Asylum whose friends, guardians
or relations were able to pay for their care and maintenance.
Under existing statutes none can be taken into the Asylum
unless they are indigent.
LANDS AND IMMIGRATION.
The Commissioner has made a lucid' and exhaustive report
upon all the matters coming under his department, which I re-
spectfully refer to you for information upon these subjects.
You will perceive from his report that the sales of land have
increased during the past two years by several thousands of
dollars over the two preceding years, notwithstanding the gen-
eral depression of business, thus showing that immigration has
been gradually upon the increase, though not in very large
numbers at any one period.
BOARD OF IMMIGRATION.
Though this Board has but a limited amount of funds under
its control, its usefulness has nevertheless been felt. I refer
you to the report of the President for what has been done to
induce immigration.
ELECTIONS.
As our present laws nrliLirnji to elections and reci-sttjii of
electors do not seem to be entirely free from faults, I would
respectfully call your attention to them, and trust that in your
wisdom you may be able to make such amendments as will pre-
vent in the future all illegal voting and frauds of any nature
whatsoever in elections. I respectfully call your attention to
the report of the Attorney-General both upon this and other
subjects discussed by him.
AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS.
Many letters ih:] in been received at the different depart-
ments of our State Government from parties desirous of com-
ing to Florida who wished to know something reliable as to our
productions and resources before permanently settling, and
who wanted printed statistical information,.we have.been.coim-
pelled to inform them that no reliable information of this na-
ture had ever been compiled. Seeing the necessity of such
3a








34



statistics, after consultation with members of the Cabinet, it
was decided to get up a blank book with all the possible pro-
ductions of .the State arranged under the proper headings, and
to send them to the assessors of taxes of each county and re-
quest them to collect all the information possible, and when
the books were finished to return them to my office. I am
glad to say that nearly every assessor in the State complied
with my request and has furnished a large amount of valuable
information that heretofore has been inaccessible. I have had
these books compiled, and the result will be submitted in
a subsequent report. As there were no moneys appropri-
ated from which to pay the assessors for this work, I could
only promise to call the matter to your attention and recom-
mend that you make a special appropriation for this purpose,
giving to each assessor a compensation commensurate with the
work done, and I would suggest that you amend the law defin-
ing the duties of assessors of taxes, and require them in the fu-
ture to collect this statistical information while they are going
their rounds assessing taxes, and compile it in a separate book,
and when completed to forward the same to some one of the
officers of the Cabinet to arrange and have printed in the.
proper manner. This would furnish a fund of information that'
would be exceedingly valuable, and would enable us to ac-
curately estimate each year the increase in our agricultural,
horticultural and pomological productions.
INTERNAL IMPROVEMENTS.
A wise legislation for the encouragement of enterprises for
the construction of railroads and canals, with grants of unoc-
cupied and now unproductive lands, is not only a public neces-
sity, but would do much towards enhancing the value of the
remaining land and would promote the interests of the State in
every locality.
The passage of a general and popular system of cheap and
rapid means of transportation of any kind whatever through-
out our State, so that the people could have an easy outlet to
market for their surplus and perishable productions, is very de-
sirable. This is the surest means of promoting immigration
to the now neglected portions of our State, and as it is true








36

that the burden of taxation diminishes in the ratio that the-
wealth of the State increases, it seems the dictateof wisdom
and sound policy to encourage and foster such improvements..
ROADS AND ROAD LAWS.
In a previous message I called the attention of the Legisla-
ture to some of the defects in our Road Laws; amendments'
were effected, but faults still exist and many complaints are,
made against the working of the present system of Road Laws,
Good roads tend to increase travel, facilitate the transporta-
tion of goods, merchandise, the products of the country, and
benefit every class of citizens. I would therefore recommend,
that the laws of this character be changed so as to make it a
misdemeanor for failure to do road duty when properly notified,.
punishable in such manner as the Legislature may specify.
SEMINOLE WAR CLAIMS.
By an act of the last Legislature, I was authorized to appoint
an agent to adjust and settle all claims between the State of Flor-
ida and the United States, growing out of the Seminole war.
Accordingly, last August, I appointed Col. W. K. Beard as such
agent, on the part of the State, to ascertain the amount due
from the United States to this State on the account of such
military service. He has collected quite a large amount of
documentary evidence, and has done all he could without visit-
ing Washington and procuring some further information from
the War Department. As the State has an agent there attend-
ing to other claims, I advised Col. Beard to communicate with
him and get him to obtain such information as he needed. He
accordingly wrote the State agent to procure the information
for him and he is looking for it to come at any time. When it
arrives he will make his report to the Legislature.
PUBLIC BUILDINGS.
True economy would dictate that we should preserve our:
public buildings. I would most respectfully suggest that you
make an appropriation sufficient to put the Capitol in repair.
The Adjutant General has, in his report, mentioned the im-
provement he deems necessary, but there are some items that
I think worthy of calling to your special attention. The.









86



Treasurer has at all times a large amount of securities in his
safes, which, in case of the Capitol being burned, would
probably be destroyed. I would respectfully suggest, that in
addition to the appropriations you make to put the Capitol in
repair, you add an amount sufficient to build vaults of brick,
with suitable iron doors, to receive the Treasurer's safes. I
would also suggest that it would be proper to have the Capitol
and Asylum insured.
REWARDS.
No appropriation was made by the last Legislature for re-
wards for fugitives from justice. There have been a number of
cases since the last session in which it would have been advis-
able to offer such rewards, but the absence of an appropriation
has prevented it. I would urge upon the Legislature special
attention to this matter. It is necessary to a proper enforce-
ment of criminal justice that funds should be provided for this
purpose.
BOARD OF HEALTH.
To devise some. means of preventing the return of the
scourge that so severely affected the town of Fernandina dur-
ing the year 1877, and to protect our sea-port cities and towns
from epidemics, and contagious or infectious diseases, is of the
utmost importance, and I trust during your present session,
you may bo able to enact some measures looking to that end,
either by establishing a State Board of Health, with such pow-
ers as will enable it to accomplish the purposes mentioned, or
make some other law tending to the same purpose.
CONCLUSION.
.In conclusion, gentlemen, I express the hope that your
labors may result in the substantial advancement of every ma-
terial interest of the State. I have given you such information
as the Constitution requires and recommended such matters as
I think the public interest demands. It remains with you te
take such action in relation to the matters recommended, and
also in relation to such other matters as shall come before you,
as in your legislative discretion you shall think will be for the
best. Coming directly from the people, knowing their wants
and necessities, I am satisfied that you will look to their best








37
interests. My sincere hope is that your session may be har-
monious, and your actions meet with the approval of the people
you represent.

Mr. Yonge, Chairman of the Committee on Privileges and
Elections, made the following report:
HON. CHAtLES DOUGHERTY,
Speaker of the Assembly:
SmR: The standing committee of the Assembly on Privi-
leges and Elections, to whom was referred the contested elec-
tion cases from Putnam county, of Jared Patchen vs. Edwin
Kerby, and Augustus Monroe vs. Edwin Kerby, for seats as
members of this Assembly, beg leave to report as follows:
1. That at the recent election held in said County of Putnam
for members of the General Assembly, the said County of
Putnam was entitled to elect two Representatives in this body;








45



that at said election, held on the 5th day of No v-iii.n r, 1878,
Jared Patchen and Augustus Monroe were candidates on one
political ticket, and Edwin Kcrby (now holding a seat in this
i..l,,1 and John F. Tenney were (.iilId.llat,. on the ol.''Ii (ol;ti.il.d ticket; and that, by the returns on file in the o.rliv :'f
the Secretary of State from the said County of Putnam, it
appears that Jared Patchen received, at said election of the
5th of November, 1878, six hundred and twenty-five (625)
votes, and the said A.'ia4-tAll Mi.nIo,' received six hundred
and twenty-five (625) votes, as candidates for members of this
Assembly; and that John F. Tenney received six hundred
(600) votes, and E11lwin Kerby received six hundred and thirty-
one (631) votes, as candidates for members of this A --.n mlv.
The Committee further report that they have caused the
respective parties, contestants and contestee, to appear before
them, and have heard and considered their statements together
with the papers and evidence submitted and referred to them
by the .\-.i ll. 1\ on the 8th instant; and from such examina-
tion do tind lih:i. at several election precincts in said county at
said election of the 5th of \Nov.-i\lmr, 1878, the contested
received eight illegal votes, cast and polled by persons not
qualified electors of this St:,.t and the County of Putnam,
and which said eight votes were improperly received and
counted for contestee by the clil:.'r- appointed by law to can-
vass and count said votes.-
The committee further report and say, from the evidence
before them, it appears and is shown that three (3) legal votes
were offered at said election in said county for contestants by
three (3) citizens and duly and li-.:dlVy 'li iliti.l1 electors of
said county and State and of the precincts in which they offered
to vote, which said votes so offered were improperly and wrong-
fully refused by the Inspectors of said election at the precincts
at which th. \ so offered.
The committee further report and say, that from the evidence
before them, there appears and was shown to have occurred vari-
ous and several irregularities in the conduct of the said election
and in the canvass 1t1 I I votes of the said election by the Board of
County Canvassers, as to the returns of certain precincts in the
county, which showed a majority for contestee, but which said
irregularities the committee deem unnecessary to report upon,
as the preceding grounds reported upon are *.i!li.ivt. in their
Jil,.',..il 1to decide the cases upon, and tih rIf.'l'- would report
to Assembly that having fully examined the testimony herein,
that they find that the contestants, Jared Patchen and Augustus
M.Iuun',,t are entitled to seats in this Assembly as members
hereof and Representatives from the county of Putnam, :ha% iLu
been duly elected thereto, and that the contested, Edwin 1;.-1 by.







46

now occupying a seat in this body as Representative from Put-
nam is not entitled to such seat.

Which was, read.
Mr. Lee, from the same committee, made the following mi-
nority report:
ASSEMBLY HALL,
TALLAHASSEE, FLA., January 10, 1879.J
Hon. CIIAs. DOUGHERTY,
Speaker of the Assembly :
SI--The undersigned, members of the Committee on Privi-
leges and Elections, beg leave to submit the following as their
report, viz.: In the case of Jared Patchen and Augustus Mon-
roe vs. Edwin Kerby, we would state that we find an anomaly in
legislative proceedings, in that there are two persons claiming
the seat of the sitting member from the county of Putnam.
It appears from the evidence that Edwin Kerby received at
the late election six hundred and thirty-one (631) votes, and
that Jared Patchen and Augustus Monr-o.' received six hun-
dred and tw. it -liv.- (625) votes each, they having tied each
other at said election.
The contestants claim that the votes of Anthony Diclde,
Johnson Schell and William Gordon were illegal; that the
persons named were not residents of and not entitled to vote
in Putnam county at said election.
The evidence adduced by contestants, in reference to Dickle
and Schell, shows that they were duly registered, and that
they claimed to be citizens of Putnam county; that they were
laborers and sought employment at times away from their
homes. As to William Gordon, the fact of his having made a
contract to labor in Alachua county for one year is not con-
elusive that he abandoned his residence in Putnam county, to
which latter county he returned in July of said year.
The contestants claim that Albert Cohen was disqualified as
an elector, having been convicted of the crime of larceny in
the County Court of Putnam county, as appears from the
records of said court. Under the Constitution, the County
Court, when existing as a court for the trial of causes, had
criminal jurisdiction only in cases of misdemeanor, and in no
case could it assume jurisdiction of felonies. The conviction,
as appears from the copy of the record offered in evidence,









does not work disqualification. Article XIV. of sec-
tion 2 of the Constitution of Florida, says: Nor shall
any person convicted of felony be qualified to vote at
any election unless restored to civil rights." And in
the election law, Bush's Digest, p. 300, sec. 6, 3d para-
graph, among others debarred from voting, we find: "Persons
convicted of bribery, perjury, larceny, or other infamous
crimes." In this enumeration of disqualifying crimes, all are felo-
nies, and none are misdemeanors. The same reasons that apply
to Albert Cohen apply to Joseph Snead with equal force. As
to Arthur Williams the crime for which he was convicted is not
larceny even, and he was by no means disqualified. (See
Bush's Digest, sec. 43, p. 225.)
These convictions were for misdemeanors, and did not work
a disqualification, or impair their rights as legal voters under
the Constitution and laws of Florida.
Contestants further claimthat George W. Lyle was an illegal
voter, not being a naturalized citizen. The evidence does not
show that Mr. Lyle was a foreigner, but simply that his vote
was challenged on that ground, he !h:i \ii, told witness some-
time before that he was an Englishman.
Contestants claim that the votes of Andrew Diaz, Joshua
May, and Allen Sparkman were improperly excluded by the
inspectors at Precinct No. 9. The evidence seems to show that
they claim to have been registered voters of the county at some
time prior, but had not registered in the precinct as required
by the law of 1877. The presumption is that the inspectors
under their oath did their duty, and that the said Diaz, May,
and Sparkman were not qualified electors under the law.
In the case of Joe Gordon and Ivey White, who voted at
Precinct No. 10 in said county, and whose votes are claimed
by contestants to have been illegally cast, in that the said Gor-
don and the said White were minors, and not legally entitled
to vote, we agree with the majority of the committee and rec-
commend that the said two votes be deducted from the aggre-
gate vote of the said Edwin Kerby, as shown by the returns on
file in the office of the Secretary of State.
In conclusion, as there is no legal reason why the votes of
Anthony Dickle, Johnson Shell, Albert Cohen, George W.
Lyle, Arthur Williams, Joseph Snead, and William Gordon
should have been rejected by the inspectors on the day of elec-
tion, we can see no reason now.
In view of what has been expressed above, we believe that
Edwin Kerby is justly entitled to the seat he now occupies as
a member of this Assembly from Putnam county, he having
received six hundred and twenty-nine (629) legal votes,.while
each of the contestants received six hundred and twenty-five (625








48



votes, giving the said Kerby a in:jority of four (4) votes over
each of them.
And we further find and recommend that the said Jared
Patchen and Augustus Monroe, be required to comply with
the law regulating elections in this State in 'cases where tEd
persons receive an equal number of votes, and return home and
submit their cases to the Clerk of the Circuit Court and
determine by lot which of the two (2) is entitled to repros.(nt
the County of Putnam in the House of the Assembly of tho
present Legislature.
We therefore recommend the adoption of the following res.
solutions :
Resolved, That Edwin Kerby is entitled to the seat he no*
occupies as member of this Assembly from Putnam county.
Resolved further, That the contestants, Jared Patchen and
Augustus Monroe, return to Putnam county, and at the coun-
ty seat thereof and before the Clerk of the county, deter-
mine by lot which of them is entitled to a seat in this Assem-
bly, in accordance with the law in such cases made and provided;

Mr. Westcott announced the death of Captain John Drys-
dale, Doorkeeper of the Assembly, and said:
Mr. Speaker: It is an unpleasant duty for me to announce
the decease of Captain John Drysdale, the Door Keeper of the
House. As an imperfect tribute to the memory of Captain
Drysdale, I will state that soon after arriving at manhood he was
appointed an officer of the United States army, and was ordered
to Fort Uma, on the Colorado of the West. Here he distin-
guished himself in several conflicts with the Indians. At the
commencement of the war between the States he entered the
Confederate army. He was a good soldier, was in many bat-
tles, and was seriously wounded in the battle of Cold Harbor.
So serious was this wound that he ever after suffered from it,
and it was probably, in a large measure, the cause of his
decease this morning.
Mr. Canova made the following motion:
That, as a tribute of respect to the deceased, the Assembly
do now adjourn until 10 A. M. to-morrow; and that the mem-
bers, officers and attaches of the Assembly are respectfully
requested to attend the funeral services of Captain John Drys-
dale, late Door Keeper of the Assembly, this afternoon at 3
o'clock, from the boarding house of Mrs. F. R. Lamb;
"Which was agreed to. and the Assembly adjourned.

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Legislature:
I beg leave to express to you my high appreciation of the
distinguished honor you have conferred upon me, and to ac-
knowledge the obligation of gratitude which you have placed
me under to you and the people and State of Florida which
you represent.
I am not unmindful of the great responsibilities and duties
which this great office imposes-these are not more than com-
passed by the highest attainments, the most earnest labors and
the most devoted patriotism. I shall seek to perform them,
not relying on myself alone, but invoking with a sincere heart
that higher wisdom which comes from the King of Kings, the
sovereign Lord and Ruler of the people of the earth. I shall
endeavor to represent all portions of our State and our people,
and to advance the interests of each section without neglect or
disparagement of the others. I shall endeavor to preserve and
protect from violation the Constitution of the United States-
that great charter of the people's rights under which free rep-
resentative government has in this century been developed into
a grand and powerful system of government. These duties
come to us at a time when the States are just recovering from
the shock of the great civil war, when the reconstruction of
the civil, political and social economies of the country have
produced widely differing opinions and interests, and broad
departures from the constitutional modes and traditions of our
government and the principles of our political system. It is
tbr us, in our respective places, to seek to preserve the sovereign
right of the people to the control of their government; to en-
courage and give force and effect to the natural and just in-
duLetrinJ of intelligence, of property and of the industrious and
laboring classes in the administration of the powers of a gov-
ernment created by them and which rests on them alone for
support. It is for us to protect the citizen from arbitrary ar-
rest and imprisonment, and from wanton and malicious prose-
cution under the forms of law. It is for us to restrain the
prostitution of the courts of justice to partizan purposes, and
to require their impartial and just administration of the law.
it is for us to engraft on our Southern population those of our
fellow-citizens who come from other sections-who come to
make their home with us and to aid us in our material advance-
ment. It is our duty to intermingle their and our opinions,
thoughts and sympathies in a just and kindly public opinion
which shall seek the public good alone and shall defy the pur-
poses of the partizan who strives for his personal emolument
and promotion amidst the ruin of his country and her people.
la







98

All this, I think, is comprehended in the legislation by which
a just and intelligent public opinion is formed.
In that series of legislative measures which have been
adopted since 1868, relating to the reconstruction of the South,
ern States, opportunity has been found to vest an arbitrary
power of arrest and punishment of the citizens in the courts
of law and even in their subordinate officers, and to deny the
right of trial by impartial juries. A disqualification in the
exercise of the privileges of citizenship has been imposed on
the larger part of the people of the Southern States. All this,
in the opinion of just men, whatever may be their I[.i'ty rela-
tions, demands correction. These evils strike at the very ex-
istence of free guv ,o ninenit, and deny the great principle of
personal right which our institutions are designed to preserve.
The writ of habeas corpus, the right of the citizen to the en-
joyment of his chartered right to personal liberty and to a just
trial by an impartial jury, is absolutely necessary to the pres-
ervation of the government and is the foundation stone upon
which rests all the rights of the people.
The careful separation of the courts of justice, created for
and charged with the determination of private rights and tho
punishment of crime, from the arenas of party strife, and from
the exercise of political influence or power. is another feature
which has been infringed upon, and needs the correcting hand
of wise legislation. The improvement of our rivers and har-
bors in all parts of the State will receive my earnest efforts.
Situated, as is this State, at the terminal point of the United
Sttar on the Atlantic ocean and Gulf of Mexico, with the two
great States of Alabama and Georgia finding access for their
rivers and their commerce to the Gulf of Mexico through our
territory; with our inland chain of rivers and lakes extending
South through the peninsula a great distance in the direction
of Key West and Tortugas, which is the great depot and fort-
ress of the country on the Gulf, it seems to me that we may
well demand of the government that all necessary aid shall be
given to such measures of improvement as will give free access
through these highways to commerce and travel, and to the
means of national defence in time of war. In the performance
of these duties, I shall rely on your assistance and the contin-
uance of the generous confidence with which the people of
Florida have so largely honored me, both now and in times
past.
And now permit me to say for myself, that I yield to none
in my love for all parts of the State of Florida, and in devotion
to the interests of her people in each of its widely separated
parts. Connected with those who have passed away and who
bore no undistinguished part in the early settlement.and tradi-

tions of the State, both in the West and East Floridas, and i
its first occupation by General Jackson, its acquisition from
Spain and its defense against the savages, who so often desola-
ted its soil, a citizen of the State from my earliest childhood,
always receiving marks of the attachment and sympathy of- hr
people, I am bound to her by the strongest ties of affectiora
No object lies nearer to my heart, than that of promoting the
advancement of her people and the accomplishment of whatever
shall be for the interest of the State.
I again renew the expression of my thanks for the honor
you have conferred upon me and pledge to devote my constant
labors and most earnest efforts for the public good.
