Gentlemen of the Assembly :
It is perhaps only necessary that I should return you my
thanks for the honor you have conferred upon me, and then
announce my readiness to proceed to business.
I shall do little more than this.
It is due to candor, that I should admit to you my inexpe-
rience in the duties you have devolved upon me, and you will
pardon me if I beg in advance that I may have your forbear-
ance and charity for any shortcomings I may and doubtless
will manifest.
I feel that I can rely upon your kindly aid in mastering the
duties of my office, and that throughout the session I shall
have your support and co-operation in all efforts for the right.
Permit me to urge that we enter immediately upon the
work before us. Several matters of grave importance will
present themselves to you. These I need not now enumerate.
They will deserve our strict attention, our undivided thought,
and the exercise of our best judgment.
Let us forego as much of the smaller class of legislation as
the needs of our respective constituencies will permit, and
turning our attention to those things which affect the whole
State and her future, let us endeavor to accomplish them as
speedily as a proper regard for accuracy will allow, and then
bring our sitting to a close.
I cannot preside over your deliberations with ability but it
shall be my endeavor to preside with fairness and uprightness.
If I accomplish this and thereby win your confidence and es-
teem I shall wish no higher reward.
I do not content myself with mere formal thanks but I ac-
knowledge with profound gratitude the honor you have done
me.
May the Great Presiding Officer of the Universe give me the









6



power to perform my duties to your satisfaction and to the
satisfaction of the people of Florida.

GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.



EXECUTIVE OFFICE,
TALLAHASSEE, January 5, 1885.)
Gentlemen of the Senate and Assembly:
After consultation with the Governor-elect, and in conformi-
ty with the usage established four years ago, for the outgoing
Governor to prepare the message, I leave on file in this office
for your consideration, the following statement of such mat-
ters of interest to the State as the occasion requires.
STATE FINANCES.
Our finances are in the most gratifying condition. Indeed,
the State has never in her entire history, occupied the high
position, she does to-day in the financial world. Her Comp-
troller's warrants bass current in the banking institutions and
moneyed marts of the country, the small amount of bonds she
has outstanding in the hands of individuals are at a high
premium, she has no floating debt, and cash in the Treasury to
meet all legitimate expenses.
It will be seen from the reports of the Comptroller and
Treasurer, that the total amount, of warrants issued for 1883
were $251,075.85, and for 1884 $195,923.85, including $13,174
for Deaf, Dumb and Blind Asylum. The bonded debt of the
State is as follows:
7 per cent. bonds of 1871................... $350,000.00
6 per cent: bonds of 1873 .................. 925,000.00
Convention bonds ........................ 1,500.00-1,276,500 00
Deduct bonds of 1871 in Sinking Fund...... 66,000.00
Deduct bonds of 1873in Sinking Fund...... 100,000.00- 166,000.00
Bonds of 1871 and 1873............................ $1,110,500.00
Of which the School Fund holds............ $825,300.00
Sinking Fund holds....................... 90,400.00
Agricultural College Fund holds........... 155,800.00- 571,500.00
Leaving in hands of individuals.............. ..... $539,000.00








23



Showing a decrease of amount in hands of individuals
during the past two years of $50,800.00. In addi-
tion to bonds of 1873 in Sinking Fund, the Sinking
Fund for these bonds held in U. S. 4 per cent. bonds
market value........................................ 34.800.00
Leaving practically an outstanding bonded debt of .... $524,200.00
I feel it my duty to again call the attention of the Legislature
to the inequality of our bonds, so far as the sinking fund is
concerned.
The Laws of Florida, Chapter 1833, under which was issued
the seven per cent. bonds, ,nd Chapter 1937, under which was
issued the six per cent. bonds, provide that the Treasurer can-
not pay over their par value, in the purchase of any said bonds
for the sinking fund. The bonds of the State have advanced
so much in value since that time, that the Treasurer cannot
purchase the same'at their par value. The Legislature of 1881
amended in this particular Chapter 1833, relating to the seven
per cent. bonds, but by an oversight omitted to amend Chap-
ter 1937, relating to the six per cent. securities, which precludes
the Treasurer from purchasing them for the sinking fund.
I therefore renew the recommendation made in my message
of January 1883, that Section 8, of Chapter 1937, be so amended
"as to allow the Treasurer to purchase said bonds at their mar-
ket value.
TAXATION.
In accordance with the suggestions made in my message of
January, 1883, the Legislature reduced the State tax to four
mills for that year, and authorized me, if the aggregate assess-
ment of the property of the State would permit, to reduce the
same to three mills for the year 1884. The aggregate assess-
ment of the property of the State showing a large increase,
the State tax was reduced to three mills for 1884, in accord-
ance with said legislative authority.
Florida's growth in the last four years must be a source of
profound gratification to every lover of the State. The re-
lease of our Internal Improvement Fund from threatened bank-.
ruptcy. and ruin, not only largely augmented our taxable re-
sources, by placing a large amount of lands upon the tax-








24



books, but added an immense impetus to railroad building,
thus inviting immigration and capital-all tending to the de-
velopment of the State-has about doubled our taxable re-
sources in that period. The taxable values for 1880 and sev-
eral years prior, averaged about thirty-one millions of dollars.
Since 1880 these Values have annually swollen, until 1884 they
show an assessment of over sixty millions of dollars. No
State in the Union, that I am aware of, has doubled her re-
sources in the last four years. Florida stands alone in such
an unprecedented growth.
Owing to this increase, under ordinary circumstances, I would
recommend a further'reduction of State taxation. But in view
of the fact that we are to have a Constitutional Convention,
soon to follow the present session of the Legislature, and the
reasonable probability of another Legislative session to put in
operation what changes are made in the organic law, it is im-
possible to estimate what expenses will have to be met. It
will be in the power of the Legislature and Convention, by a
,commendable economy of time and expenditure, to enable a
reduction to be made. Feeling that the State, under no cir-
cumstances, should pass back into the ruinous system of scrip
issue," I deem it the part of a proper prudence to let the State
tax remain at three mills, and empower the Governor to reduce
the same if the expenditures above alluded to will allow it.
It is not the State tax that burthens the people.
Unfortunately, some of the counties have outstanding
obligations, some running back prior to the war, which have
to be met by a heavy county tax. These, however, are gradu-
ally meeting their obligations, and in a few years, it is hoped,
will be relieved.
EDUCATION.
It is scarcely necessary to call your attention to the vital im-
portance of popular education as the best safeguard of constitu-
tional liberty. In whatever light it is viewed, whether as a
safeguard to our republican institutions, or as a necessity to
the progress and prosperity of our State, or as a most potent
agency in the promotion of immigration, the education'of the
growing youth of the State commends itself to every thought-









25

ful mind. It has been well said that "maximum education
makes minimum government possible and secures maximum
liberty;" and it may well be added that ignorance is the fruit-
ful mother of public burthens, and contributes but little to the
public weal or wealth.
The large increase in our school facilities and in the attend-
ance of pupils, are therefore subjects of congratulation. We
now have 1,504 schools in operation, with an attendance of
pupils of 58,311, an increase in each of one hundred per cent.
in the last eight years.
The principal of our school fund, derived chiefly from the
sale of' lands known-as the "sixteenth section," has increased
in an unprecedented manner during the last four years. In
my last message I placed the school fund on hand January 1,
1881, at $246,900. There were $9,000 of railroad bonds in the
fund at that time, but as their validity or value had been ques-
tioned they were not included in the estimate. Since that
period their value has been settled, and being added to the
fund makes $255,900 as the principal of our school fund, which
had slowly accumulated from 1845 up to January 1, 1881.
The increase in the last four years has been.$220,284.20;
being without a parallel within the history of the State. This
makes the total Common School Fund $476,184.25, yielding
an income of $27,314 annually, which is apportioned to the
various counties yearly by the Superintendent of Public In-
struction.
AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
Under the act of Congress of July 2, 1862, there was granted
to each State thirty thousand acres of land for each Senator
and Representative of said State under the census of1860.
The conditions of the grant were that the interest shall be
inviolably appropriated to the endowment, support and main-
tenance of at least one college where the leading object shall
be, without excluding other scientific classical studies, and in-
cluding military tactics, to teach such branches of learning as
are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts, in such
manner as the Legislatures of the States may respectively pre-
scribe." The act also provided that "no portion of said fund,








26



nor the interest thereon, shall be applied directly or indirectly,
under any pretence whatever, to the purchase, erection, preser-
vation or repair of any building or buildings."
Under this grant Florida received ninety thousand acres,
which were sold for $81,000. The proceeds of the sale were in-
vested in $100,000 of Florida bonds. The interest has since
been invested, and the principal now amounts to $155,800
which produces an annual income of $9,227.
Lake City having made the best offer, the Trustees of the
fund located the college at that point. The building has been
completed, and the college is now in operation, and offers edu-
cational advantages of the highest character.
INSTITUTE FOR THE DEAF, DUMB AND BLIND.
The last Legislature passed an act to Provide an Institute
for the Blind and Deaf and Dumb in this State," and design -
ted the members of the State Board of Education and the Gov-
"ernor as a Board of Managers for said Institute. The Board
of Managers was directed to secure by donation, purchase or
otherwise suitable grounds' and buildings for said purpose.
The city of St. Augustine gave the Board five acres of land
adjoining the north addition of said city and one thousand
dollars in money, to have the Institute located at that point.
The location is admirably suited for such an asylum, and is
" healthy, convenient and accessible." The buildings, which
are commodious and of handsome architectural design, are
now completed and ready for the reception of that unfortunate
class of our population. A principal and one assistant have
been selected by the Board of Managers, and the Institution
will soon be in successful operation.
Our two Seminaries, one located at Gainesville and the other
at Tallahassee, are in a most prosperous condition, and are an-
nually increasing the number of their pupils and widening their
influence as Seminaries worthy of the support and confidence
of the people. They have now a fund of $91,400, producing an
income of $5,568, which is equally divided semi-annually by
the Comptroller between the two Seminaries.
A University has also been established at Tallahassee by the
energy and liberality of Chancellor J. Kost. While it is yet








27



in its infancy, it gives promise of budding manhood and cor-
responding usefullness in the near future.
In this connection I can but repeat what I said in a former
message, that while popular education is a duty belonging to
the respective States, and a matter of local policy which should
be under the management of local government, yet owing to
the peculiar condition of the South our resources are insuffi-
cient to furnish all the assistance required for the education
of our large illiterate population. The right of Congress to
contribute to general education in the several States has not
been questioned, and it is to be hoped that the General Gov-
ernment, appreciating the great necessity for such a course,
will still further add to the educational resources of the coun-
try, to be applied through the agency of the various State or-
ganizations.
RAILROADS.
No better evidence can be given to illustrate Florida's pro-
gress and growth, than the increased facilities she offers in
railroad transportation. Owing to the great incumbrance
upon her Internal Improvement Fund, her increase in railroads
since the war and up to the year 1881, was extremely limited.
The Legislature had granted charters with large land grants,
but as the Trustees could give no valid title to said lands as
long as the debt existed, capital was not forthcoming to build
the roads. The practical disencumberment of the Internal
Improvement Fund by a sale of a portion of the lands to
relieve the debt, at once changed the situation, and the
result has been an unprecedented increase in our railroad
mileage that has no parallel in the history of the State.
Indeed, when our population and resources are considered, no
State in the Union can compare with her in this unparalleled
increase. In the last four years theie have been finished, built
and now in operation, 776 miles of new road. In addition to
this there are about 224 miles graded and ready for the cross-
ties and iron, which will be furnished during the present
year. In a word, there have been practically built one thousand
miles of road in Florida in the last four years. When we
consider that from the State's admission into the Union up to








28

January, 1881, there had been built but 537 miles of road, and
that to-day there are equipped and running 1,313 miles, with 224
more miles graded, soon to be ironed, the progress in the last
four years is apparent to all. These roads have been of in-
calculable value to the State. Their values have enabled a
large reduction in taxation, they have advertised the country
and attracted immigration, and have already created and con-
nected towns and villages that had no existence a few years
ago. And the work is not yet finished. It will still go on.
There are some of the best and most inviting .sections of the
State now without transportation, that must necessarily secure
it at an early day.
RECLAMATION OF LANDS.
The Atlantic and Gulf Coast Canal and Okeechobee Compa-
ny, under their contract with the State for the reclamation of
lands in the southern portion of the Peninsula, since the year
1881, have steadily prosecuted the work of constructing drain-
age canals, the improvement of the natural river system
within their territory, and have added efficient mechanical
appliances by which the completion of the great work con-
templated under their franchise with the State will be
materially hastened.
A brief summary of the operations of this company shows
a completed canal for drainage and navigation, connecting the
head waters of the Caloosahatchee and Okeechobee, intercept-
ing in its course Lakes Flirt and Hecppachee, the latter being
a fresh water lake about five miles in diameter, hitherto
practically unknown. This canal penetrates a portion of the
State hitherto inaccessible and develops a large territory.
The outcropping ledge of limestone through which the
Caloosahatchee river at Fort Thompson forces its way, has
been sufficiently removed to provide a channel in width and
depth commensurate with present demands of navigation.
The company is engaged in shortening the Kissimmee river,
much effective work having already been accomplished. In
some instances cuts of less than one-fourth of a mile reduced
the.distance by old river channel almost three miles.
Tiger Creek, connecting Lake Kissimmee with lakes Tiger,








29



Rosalie and Walk-in-the-Water, on the west, has been shorten-
ed, deepened and improved by removal of snags, bars, etc.
The water shed of the upper system of drainage has been
permanently relieved by the recent completion of a canal con-
necting Lake Tohopekaliga with the drainage system south.
This canal is supplementary to the large cut, long since
completed in Lake Cypress, by which the surface level of
Lake Tohopekaliga, covering an area of twenty-six square
miles, was reduced many feet.
The surface of the waters in the valley of this great interior
tidal and lake system varies from twenty-two feet at Lake
Okeechobee to seventy-one feet at Lake Tohopekaliga above
river level, indicating that the most depressed portion of the
territory is sufficiently elevated to provide for an efficient
drainage of the whole.
Besides the great benefits to be derived by the State from the
reclamation of this vast territory the work already accomplished
has opened up water transportation for boats of about one hun-
dred feet in length, connecting Punta Rosa, at the mouth of
the Caloosahatchee river, on the Gulf, with Kissimmee City,
a point about centrally located in the peninsula portion of the
State. The company is operating four steam dredges capable
of cutting canals from twenty-three to sixty-five feet wide and
from six to twelve feet deep.
They have two steamboats as tenders to their dredges and
use other appliances necessary to the accomplishment of the
work in hand.
Over forty miles of canal and river improvements have been
made, besides the removal of numerous obstructions to naviga-
tion and drainage. The expenditure in legitimate work has
aggregated over two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. The
magnitude of this enterprise, and its destined influence upon
the future of the State can scarcely be realized. The reclama-
tion of many millions of acres, containing some of the most
valuable sugar lands in the United States, with suitable cli-
matic conditions for the successful growth of all tropical fruits,
is the harbinger of an era of population, wealth and prosper-
ity unthought of in our past history.

FLORIDA COAST LINE CANAL.
The Florida Coast Line Canal and Transportation Com-
pany," organized to secure inland water communication from
St. Augustine to Biscayne Bay, by connecting the Matansas,
Halifax and Indian rivers, on our eastern coast, is prosecuting
the work with commendable zeal and success. They now have
three powerful steam dredges on the work, two steamers and
three tenders.
Since the commencement of the work, the entire force of the
company has been concentrated on the work required to con-
nect the Matansas and Halifax rivers, as this is the most expen-
sive and difficult portion of the proposed improvement. There
has been constructed of canal six feet deep thirty feet wide,
and improvements of rivers, lagoons and creeks to the same
depth, about forty miles, leaving still a gap of fourteen miles,
including Smith's Creek,'the ridge between Matansas and Hal-
ifax rivers, about three quarters of a mile, and a small portion
of prairie. It is estimated that this work will be completed
by next fall, and steamers will then pass through, transporting
passengers and freight to and from St. Augustine, and the
towns and settlements on the Halifax and Billsborough rivers.
By spring or early summer, work will commence on the
"Haulover," thus connecting Indian river, and -insuring a
transportation line fully established between St. Augustine
and Lake Worth, or Jupiter inlet, a distance of 220 miles. It
is expected then to carry the work still further south, even be-
yond Biscayne Bay to the waters of Key West.
It is gratifying to note the progress of this enterprise. The
promise of direct and certain communication with St. Augus-
tine, securing an outlet for the valuable commercial productions
of the coast, the fertility of the soil, and the salubrity of the
climate, must necessarily induce many settlers to seek that fa-
vored region.
INDIAN WAR CLAIM.
The settlement of this claim with the UVnitcd States Govern-
ment, I regret to state, still awaits Congressional action. The
following extract from my message of January, l183, presents
a condensed history of the claim:








31



"What is known as the Indian Trust Fund of the United
States holds $132,000 of our bonds, with interest due thereon.
It has been properly excluded from the interest-bearing debt
of the State, for the satisfactory reason that the State holds
valid and legitimate claims against the General Government
for necessary expenses incurred in suppressing Indian hos-
tilities. The claim of the State is much larger than the amount
due the Indian Trust Fund, if the United States Government
allows the State the same interest claimed against her. With
the exception of an effort made in 1860, no step was taken to
settle this important matter until Governor Drew appointed
Colonel S. I. Wailes, of Washington City, who associated with
him the late Cot W. K. Beard, of Tallahassee, as agents of the
State, to settle the claims, with the understanding that their
fee was to be a contingent one of fifteen per cent. of the amount
collected.
"When the matter was presented to the Treasury Depart-
ment, the objection was made that no State claim could be
adjusted without the authority of Congress. A resolution
was introduced by our Senators and Representatives to carry
out this decision, and after a considerable delay, passed both
houses, referring the matter to the Secretary of War. A re-
port from that official has been made, allowing the State
$224,648.09. If the State is allowed interest, as the General
Government charges against her, she will be entitled to a con-
siderable sum above her indebtedness. It is hoped that Con-
gress at an early day will take action upon this long deferred,
but just and equitable claim."
Owing to the long-deferred action on this claim, the State
has suffered grave and serious detriment. By an act of Con-
gress, approved March 3d, 1845, entitled An act supple-
mental to the act for the admission of Florida into the Union,"
it is expressly stipulated and provided "that in consideration
of the concessions made by the State of Florida in respect to
the public lands, there be granted to said State five per centum
of the net proceeds of the sale of lands within said State which
shall hereafter be sold by Congress, after deducting all ex-



*









32



penses incident to the same; and which net proceeds shall be
applied by said State for the purposes of education."
The Department at Washington holds that as the State has
not paid the amount borrowed from the Indian Trust Fund,
(although she holds a much larger acknowledged claim against
the General Government,) the money arising from the five per
cent. on sales of land cannot be paid. This is an educational
fund, agreed to be paid to the State in consideration of the
concessions made by the State of Florida in respect to the
public lands," and should not be withheld. I have not the
exact data as to the amount, but from information received,
there are about sixty thousand dollars due the State from this
source-being the accumulation since the State's admission
into the Union.
Again, whenever the State can jrove that any of the land
disposed of by the United States Government for money, be-
longed to the State, under the conditions of the act of Sep-
tember 28, 1850, commonly known as the swamp act, the State
claims, and the Government allows, the money to go to the
State as indemnity. There are about forty thousand dollars
due the State from this source, now held on account of this
claim. It will thus readily be seen that the settlement of this
Indian war claim is a matter of importance to the State. I
leave on file in the Executive office the last report of S. I.
Wailes, Esq., State Agent, in connection with this subject.
STATE BOARD OF HEALTH.
By the Act of March 11, 1879, Chapter 3162, the mayor,
alderman and city physician were constituted'a Board of Health
of every incorporated town of less than three hundred regis-
tered voters; or where there is no incorporated town in a coun-
ty the County Commissioners of said county shall constitute
a Board of Health. By the Act of March 7, 1881, Chapter
3312, the Governor is authorized to appoint a Board of Health
for every incorporated city or town in the State containing
three hundred or more registered voters. The jurisdiction of
these Boards of Health cannot extend beyond the limits of the
counties in which they are located.








33



That there should be some common channel of communica-
tion between said Boards in order to secure concert of action,
in periods of epidemics, seems t4 be reasonable. Take the
line of railroad from Pensacola to Jacksonville, passing
through fourteen counties, as ah illustration. There are four-
teen Boards of Health, each with the power to reject or receive
passengers or freight, from any point they may deem infected.
Fourteen different methods, to the great annoyance of the pub-
lic and restriction of communication, might be adopted. There
ws approximated, such a state of affairs on said road, during
a portion of the summer or early fall of 1883. Under such
circumstances it is deemed advisable to have a State Board of
Health, composed of men fully qualified to regulate such re-
strictions so as to give uniformity in action and the least pos-
sible hindrance to inland commerce and passenger travel,
while at the same time giving a thorough protection to the
communities through which such traffic and travel passes.
Those progressive States that have established such Boards
have felt their beneficial effect, and none seem disposed to dis-
pense with them. Such a Board could act when requested by
the City Boards at our various sea-ports, in harmony with said
Boards, in aiding and assisting them in times of need. It
could gather and publish the vital statistics of the State,
which would largely tend to render Florida the winter sanita-
rium of the Union, by rendering the admirable health record
of the State widely known through official and responsible
sources.
But beyond this, there is a growing feeling in the public
mind that has already culminated in congressional appropria-
tions, that cities infected with severe epidemics should not be
compelled to overtax the generosity of its citizens, or public
spirited communities, by a constant appeal for necessary assis-
tance. The General Government, supported by all, could, With-
out its being felt, furnish to the local Boards of Health such
necessary pecuniary assistance as the occasion requires. It is
also prepared for a maratime quarantine, such as the States do
not possess. The application of a State Board of Health
would necessarily carry with it, for such assistance, greater
a3







34



weight than any other. And if a National Board of Health
should be established, with representatives from the various
State Boards, such representation from Florida, in time of sore
need, would be of incalculable benefit in securing pecuniary
assistance. In view of these considerations, and the fact that
it is thought that the United States stands in danger next
summer of the cholera scourge of Europe, and of our numer-
ous ports in near proximity to those of Mexico, Central
America and Cuba, I invite your earnest consideration of the
subject.
THE NEW ORLEANS EXPOSITION.
In the fall and winter of 1881, the Cotton Exposition of
Atlanta was opened for visitors. Florida was represented by
the liberal responses of some of her generous citizens, and se-
cured the first premiums for sugar, cane, rice,'sea-island cotton,
sisal hemp, oranges and lemons. In the laudable competition
with the vast number of States there represented for the best
collection of agricultural productions, but one State surpassed
her, and she was awarded the second premium.
In the fall of 1883, Florida was also represented at the Lou-
Sisville Exposition by the generosity of some of her citizens.
There her display attracted great attention, and she was award-
ed two medals and five diplomas, which are now in the Execu-
tive office. The citizens of the State are under obligations to
Hon. T. E. C. Brinley, our Commissioner, whose report is
submitted, for his liberality and unceasing labors in Florida's
behalf.
The great World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial opened
at New Orleans on the 16th of last month. In magnitude, it
surpasses anything in the world's history. The London, Paris,
Vienna and Philadelphia Expositions were all grand in their
time, but none of those magnificent buildings equaled in mag-
nitude this greatest of all Expositions. Florida is taking a
place in the picture in this grand panorama of the world's ca-
pabilities and productions. She necessarily comes, not only
in generous rivalry with her sister States of our common union,
but with Europe, Mexico, the West Indies and all of Central
and South America. She has the cereals, forestry, cotton,








35



cane, tropical and semi-tropical fruits, flowers, ornamental
plants and numerous other resources to make a most attractive
display. But it is asking too much for individual citizens,
who are generously disposed to furnish all the exhibits neces-
sary to our success. An appropriation made at once and
placed at the disposal of the Governor, might be the means of
saving our State from a failure that would be particularly
mortifying, when we consider that we have all that is necessary
within our limits to deserve success, but no means to secure
it, or place it on exhibition. Ten thousand dollars could not
be better expended than showing at this world's gathering, the
capabilities of Florida.
PAY FOR ARMS DUE THE STATE OF FLORIDA.
Under an act of Congress, approved April 23d, 1808, the an-
nual sum of two hundred thousand dollars is appropriated for
the purpose of arming and equipping the militia. (See Re-
vised Statutes, Sec. 1661.)
This sum is.apportioned among the several States according
to population. During the late war the distribution to the
Southern-States ceased as a matter of course. The respect-
ive quotas of these States, however, were placed to their credit
in the War Department each year. The fund thus accumulated
remained undisturbed until after the passage of the act of
March 3, 1873. (See Acts of Congress, 1873, Chap. 282, page
608.)
This act authorized and directed the Secretary of War to
distribute to such States as did not, from the year 1862 to the
year 1869, receive the same, their proper quota of arms and
military equipment for each year, from 1862 to 1869, under
the act of April 23, 1808, and acts amendatory thereof.
Under this act the accumulated quotas indicated were placed
to the credit of the several States interested, and subjected to
requisition from the Governors of the respective States.
An act making appropriations for the support of the army
for the fiscal year.ending June 30, 1876, approved March 3,
1875, contained this proviso:
"And provided further, that so much of the appropriations
between the first of January, 1861, and the ninth of April,








36



1865, under the act of April 23, 1808, herein referred to, as
would have been used for the purchase of arms to be distribu-
ted to the several States that were in rebellion, shall be covered
into the Treasury of the United States." (See Act 1875,Chaip.
133, Sec. 3, p. 455.)
Before the passage of this repealing proviso, the following
States drew all their credits:
Arkansas .... .... ......... ..................... ..... $15,595.63
Georgia ............................................ 31,252.67
Louisiana..... ............................... 22,299.38
Mississippi .............................. .............. 31,116.58
Tennessee .......... ......... ... ..... ........... ..... 11,094.89
Texas............. ...... ............................... 24,408.82
Virginia.................... ...... ........................ 48,404.79
The following States failed to draw their credits under the
act of 1873, and those credits were covered into the Treasury
under the proviso of the act of 1875 :
Alabama............. ........... .. ....... .... .. ....... $21,196.91
Florida .......................: ............................ 7,314.99
North Carolina ................................... 23,622.25
South Carolina............... ............................ 18,049.53
A full statement of these facts will be found in the Annual
Report of the Chief of Ordnance for the year 1877. (Execu-
tive Document, 2d Session, 45th Congress, 1877-78. Vol. 5,
pp. 10 and 11.)
In this report the Chief of Ordnance makes this comment
and recommendation:
The annulling of the provisions of the act of -1873, by the
proviso in the act of 1875, dobs injustice to some of the States in-
terested, by an unequal distribution of its benefits, and it is re-
commended that further legislation thereon be asked of Con-
gress."
Under the act of 1873 the sum of $7,314.99 was placed to the
credit of Florida; but the Governor, probably through want
of information of the provisions of that act, failed to draw the
amount, and it was covered into the Treasury under the act of
1875. North Carolina and the other States that failed to draw
their quota employed Hon. Johnston Jones, of North Carolina,
as their agent to secure the same. On the recommendation of
Senator Vance, of North Carolina, and Senator Call, of this
State, I also authorized Mr. Joiies to represent.Florida's inter-









37

est in the matter. The State is to be at no expense for the
effort, and is to pay the percentage of the most favored State
he represents" dnly upon his securing the claim.
MILITARY ENCAMPMENTS.
The first encampment of our volunteer companies, held since
the war, took place at Magnolia Bluff, near Pensacola, in June,
1884. There being no appropriation for such an encampment,
it was only rendered possible by the material aid and co-opera-
tion of Col. W. D. Chipley, the efficient Vice President and
Superintendent of the Pensacola and Atlantic Railroad. He
arranged the charges for transportation with the other railroad
companies upon a scale so low as to enable many of the com-
panies to attend. In addition, he furnished tents for'the en-
tire command, and did everything possible to render the en-
campment a success.
An efficient volunteer military organization is an ornament
and protection to the State, and should be encouraged. Noth-
ing tends to keep up the esprit de corps of these volunteer
companies more than annual encampments and a laudable
rivalry for superiority in drill, &c. I would recommend that
a small appropriation be placed at the disposal of the com-
mander-in chief for the purpose of having an annual encamp-
ment of our volunteer companies.
CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION.
The question of calling a Constitutional Convention to revise
the entire constitution, having been submitted to the people
at the last general election, held in this State on the 4th day
of November, A. D. 1884, and it appearing by the returns on
file in the Secretary of State's office that a majority of the
electors voting at said election have voted in favor of calling
a Convention, it becomes the duty of the present Legislature
to "provide by law for a Convention, to be holden within six
months after the passage of such law; and such Convention
shall consist of a number of members not less than both
branches of the Legislature."
ASYLUM FOR THE INSANE.
During the last two years large' and necessary alterations









38



and additions have been made to some of the buildings of this
institution. The building occupied by the Superintendent arid
Physicians has undergone extensive repairs-decayed timbers
removed, the roof renewed and general improvements made.
The Female Department has also been placed in excellent con-
dition, and is rendered comfortable, and suited to the purpose
to which it has been devoted. An addition has been made
containing 20 additional rooms, galleries or piazzas constructed
across the entire front, affording much relief and pleasure to
the inmates. Repairs have also been made to the smaller
buildings, which were necessary for their preservation, and
the comfort of the inmates and employees.
These buildings, having been there for a generation, when un-
roofed developed a much larger amount of decay than was antici-
pated, and the expense of repairs has been correspondingly
increased. The increased number of inmates necessarily caused
an increased expenditure for their support. In January, 1881,
there were 95; in January, 1883, there were 130; and at
present there are 157 inmates of the institution. In addition,
there are 50 supported by the State at their homes, thus
making a total of 207 that have to be provided for. In.
consequence of these increased expenditures, the appropriation
made by the last Legislature was not sufficient to make the
necessary repairs and support the 207 unfortunate insane now
supported by the State.
The roof of the large Male Department is in need of repairs at
once, and is only awaiting an appropriation for that purpose.
The institution at present is dependent entirely on cisterns for
its supply of water, and with extremely dry seasons, they fail,
rendering it necessary to haul the water. There are never-
failing springs, sufficiently convenient, with proper appliances,
to, force an abundant supply of water at all times into the
cisterns, which could be utilized at a small expense.
Additional room is still required for the continued increase
of the number of patients, and the Female Department outside
of the main enclosure, should be walled in to render it more
secure and private.
The Superintendent reports that the commisary supplies









39

have been sufficient and of good grade, and that the supplies
of clothing, bedding, medicine, &c., have been ample.
The institution requires an appropriation commensurate
with its importance and increased demands.
STATE CONVICTS.
Mr. II. M. Wood has had charge, under his contract with
the State, of the convicts for the last two years. They have
been well fed and cared for, and have had proper medical atten-
tion and the services of a chaplain.
The Adjutant General, under the direction of the Commis-
sioners of State Institutions, advertised for bids for the hire
of the convicts for the next two years. No bids, however,
were received, and we were threatened with having them to
support and guard, in addition to the expense of conveying
those hereafter convicted, from the county jails to some point
where we would be compelled to locate a camp. We have no
penitentiary, and would necessarily have had to go to the ex-
pense of erecting suitable buildings, grounds, &c., for their
safety. The expense of buildings, their support and guard
alfl transportation from the various county jails would have
been an enormous expense to the State.
Under these circumstances, it was deemed to the best inter-
est of the State to accept Mr Wood's offer of taking said con-
victs now on hand, and all others to be convicted, at the several
jails, and allow him $8,500 for the year, he to bear all expenses.
This contract is for one year only, and gives time to the State
officials to ascertain what better disposition can be made of
them in the future.
The following tables may be of interest, as showing the
number on hand and the disposition of many of them for the
last two years:

CENSUS.
The constitution requires that the Legislature shall, in the
year one thousand eight hundred and seventy-five, and every
tenth year thereafter, cause an enumeration to be made of all
the inhabitants of the State. A full and complete enumeration
of all the inhabitants of the State would show a large increase
over the census taken by the General Government in 1880.
Indeed, the census of 1880 is a mere skeleton of what Florida
is in 1885. Whether we consider it in the light of popula-
tion, wealth, taxable resources, railroads and other sources of
transportation, influx of capital, products of the soil, or gene
ral progress of the State, the census of 1880 is so far below the
actual realities of to-day as to be worthless as a source of in-
formation.
PAMPHLET LAWS.
By the Act of February 27th 1882, Chapter 1904, it is made
the duty of the State Printer, to print, and have stitched, in
pamphlet form one thousand copies of the acts and resolutions
passed by the Legislature, and deliver the same to the Secre-
tary of State for distribution. The Secretary of State is re-
quired to distribute nearly one thousand copies to various
officials mentioned in said act. (See McClellan's Digest, page
713, Section 2.) This necessarily leaves that officer without
laws to fill the various demands coming from individuals.
The number printed is entirely too small for the demand
growing out of our increased population. It will re-
quire at least fifteen hundred copies, and the Secretary of State
should be authorized to have that number printed.








41



CAPITOL BUILDING.
This building has undergone extensive repairs. The roof
has been made secure-new steps placed at the eastern and
western entrances-new floors furnished for the basement
hall and rooms, and the entire building, and fence surrounding
the grounds, thoroughly painted. Fire-proof vaults have been
placed in the Comptroller and Treasurer's offices, and the
Treasurer's office furnished with a burglar proof, chilled safe
with the most improved time lock. A suitable and convenient
brick wood house has been erected upon the grounds, thus pre-
venting the necessity of storing the fuel in the basement of the
Capitol, and relieving the building of that risk from fire. An
appropriation should be made for the continued insurance of
the Capitol as well as the buildings at the Asylum.
REPORTS OF DEPARTMENTS.
The officers occupying the various departments of the State
Government have made full reports, treating in detail upon all
matters coming under their supervision. I invite your careful
attention to the same, as they give information upon questions
9f public interest that it is impossible to embrace in the limits
of a message.
CONCLUSION.
When I took the official oath four years ago, I stated in my
inaugural address, as absolutely necessary to secure and foster
our future growth and progress, that we attract and invite a
healthy immigration, and develop our internal resources by
securing proper transportation, in the building and equipping
great highways of travel, and to see to it, that ample and abun-
dant provision be made for the true education of our rising
generation.
These were the great links in the grand chain of progress
which should secure to us a success unparalleled, and upon
which we, as a people and a State, could confidently rely in all
the future for a continuance of growth and prosperity.
These great objects I have constantly and unremittingly
held in view in the administration of the affairs and govern-
ment of our beloved State. The results, most gratifying in
their character, are before the people. They are illustrated by










42



our largely increased population, and in the fact that our ex-
treme West is now in intimate intercourse with the dwellers
upon the Atlantic, connecting our State directly with the great
West and Northwest, while our nglf coast at Tampa is closely
joined with the St. Johns on the East, and the Peninsular is
being ramified by parallels of glittering steel, kept bright by
the constant friction of traffic and of travel, and every day
increasing our wealth; while our schools are increased not
only in numbers, but advanced in efficiency and standard of
excellence, so that the children may now receive the advanta-
ges of a good common school education, and thus become
qualified for the great duties and responsibilities of citizen-
ship.
In retiring from the grave and responsible duties of the
Executive chair, I desire to return my profound gratitude to
the people of my beloved State for their confidence so mag-
nanimously expressed in my election to the high office of
Governor, and their continuous support during my term, and
to each of the gentlemen who have been members of my Cabi-
net, who have always given me their steadfast co-operation,
mature advice, and hearty support.
Leaving official position with the clear consciousness of
having, to the best of my ability, honestly and faithfully per-
formed my duties, I- most earnestly trust that the future of
our State, under the benediction and guidance of the God of
Nations, through the instrumentality of our chosen Executive,
my distinguished and honored successor, may be made yet
more prosperous, and continue in an uninterrupted happiness
and freedom.
With the expression of this earnest wish, I close my official
duties and privileges.
Respectfully,
W. D. BLOXHAM.

To the Legislature of the State of Florida:
GENTLEMEN--I congratulate you upon your assembling and
prompt organization as the legislative power of the State.
My distinguished predecessor in office, conforming to a










43



usage which seems in every respect appropriate, has prepared
an able and comprehensive message to you, which, with the
accompanying reports from the several administrative depart-
ments, I with pleasure transmit and commend to your careful
consideration. The unparalleled improvement and progress
in our State, as shown by these communications, are exceed-
ingly gratifying, and should not only be a cause of congratu-
lation throughout the State but should serve to stimulate us
to increased efforts to advance the interests of our Common-
wealth by all due encouragement to every legitimate enter-
prise. Labor as well as capital is necessary to the develop-
ment of the varied resources of our State, and to properly
stimulate and encourage labor it should most certainly be
secured in the payment of its value. The language found
in the statute for that purpose, chapter 3042, section
2, acts of 1877, 'has given rise to an uncertainty which
ought not to exist as to the force, and effect of that
statute. I further suggest that mechanics or laborers, whose
dues are often less than the expense of pursuing the remedy
provided, should have a lien not only for the value of the labor
or material, but for the expenses necessary to the enforcement
of such lien.
Assuming'that in obedience to the voice of the people, it
will be your pleasure to provide by law for a convention to
be holden within a short, but in your judgment a convenient,
time and that the organic law under which we are now acting
may be so changed as to render nugatory much legislation
which under ordinary circumstances it might be wise to enact,
I refrain from asking your time and attention to any such mat-
ters as may safely await the contemplated action by the peo-
ple in their sovereign capacity.
I hope harmony and good feeling may prevail in your ses-
sion and that your labors may be as pleasant to you as I doubt
not they will prove beneficial to the State which we have the
honor to serve. Respectfully,
E. A. PERRY.

Was read the third time.
Mr. Yonge presented the following petition:
Hons. S. R. Mallory, J. E. Yonge, J. M. Tate and J. D.
Emmons, Tallahassee:
AGENTLEMEN: The undersigned citizens of and property-hold-
ers in ,Pensacola respectfully represent that the Municipal Gov-
ernment of our city for several years past has been totally
inefficient and irresponsible, and has lacked the confidence of
all those most interested in our city's prosperity; that the
said administrations have been grossly neglectful of all the
duties most essential to a well governed city-so much so that
the people are without information concerning the affairs of
their city, which appear to be in a deplorable state, and they
are unable to obtain any information regarding its financial
condition-there having been no public statement of receipts
and expenditures for many years ; that an honest effort was
made at the late election for city officers, held on December
29, 1884, by endeavoring to elect a ticket composed of persons
from the Democratic and Republican parties, but without avail,
the whole work of registration and the counting of the votes
being mainly in the hands and under the control of those
interested in preventing a public statement of the city's
financial affairs; and the ticket which is ostensibly shown to
have received a majority of the votes cast at that election
furnishes no guarantee of a change from the old regime.
For the said reasons, and for others that will readily sug-
gest themselves, your petitioners request that you will take
such steps at the present session of the Legislature as will
secure a repeal of the charter of this city and place its affairs
in the hands of Commissioners until we can adjust its business,
and cleanse and purify our streets before next summer, and also
make the necessary arrangements for the adjustment and
payment of the city's bonded debt and secure relief from the








93



large amounts of illegal scrip afloat and being issued by the
city authorities, and deposited with usurers as collateral for
money to be spent by the officials, of which no account is ever
rendered to the people of the city.
A. L. Avery, and others.
