Old St. Joseph
Began In 1835
Dissatisfaction With Original
Land Company Led To
Founding of City
(Editor's Note: This is the first of
a series of articles on the old city
of St. Joseph from an article writ-
ton by James O. Knauss for the
Florida Historical Societ& and pub-
lished in The Star in -1938. Each
article will be related to the pre-
ceeding one and the entire series,
when completed, will give an ac-
curate history of the rise and de-
cline of the ancient city.)
Florida has a number of places
within her borders that were once
the sites of flourishing settlements
of which nothing remains at the
present time except overgrown;
ruins. None of the others that flour-
ished since the beginning of the-
American occupation of the state
equal in human interest and his-
torical importance the town of St.
Joseph, located on the bay of the
same name, a short distance west
of the Apalachicola River.
Here there occurred one of the
most stirring fights made by man
in a courageous but futile effort
to surmount overwhelming natural
and human obstacles. A study of the
struggle reveals many important
events in the state's history. Here
the first steam locomotive in Flor-
ida: was- operated; "irO'bhaf'iy t;
first (surely the second) railroad.
of the region .led to the town; the
first .and only constitutional con-
vention in territorial lays was lVld
here; and the -first important rep-
ortorial work by Florida journalists
was done in connection with this
In addition to these pioneer events,
a consideration of the town's his-
tory sheds light on the economic
conditions of the Apalachicola re
gion (extending into Georgia and
Alabama) in the late thirties, and
early forties of the nineteenth cen-
tury; on 'the financial outlook of
the territory during this period,
and on the political problems en-
gaging the attention of the inhabit-
ants. It would, therefore, seem well
worthwhile to sketch the circum-
stances surrounding the growth and
decline of St. Joseph.
History of Town Began In 1835
The real history of the town may
be said to begin on March 17, 1835,
when the supreme court of the
United States gave an unanimous
decision in the case of Colin Mitch-
ell et al, vs. the United States. This
case was concerned with the ques-
tion of t'he ownership of 1,250,000
acres of land in Middle Florida.

Our Country i Right or Wrong
PSYCHOLOGISTS AT WORK
The treasury department check-writers are'
working fast and furiously to catch up on income
tax refunds, now about 3,900,000 checks behind
last year's schedule. Some 8,000,000 checks were
mailed in April and it is expected that 9,000,000
will go out in May.
It it's any comfort to you, this year's refund
checks average nearly $10 more than last year's,
andare expected to total $2,100,000,000 as com-
pared with a flat two billion last year.
But to us the whole procedure is not only
silly and expensive, but downright vicious, a sig-
nificant item in the overall Fair Deal Socialism.
Deny the salary or wage-earning taxpayer the
right to pay his own taxes in a respectable, re-
sponsible way with his own money. Take it away
from him before he gets it by making his boss a
federal tax collector without compensation. Then
give him back the small change and maybe
the guy will think the government is wonderful!
The worst of it is, the idea seems to work. ...

WHY BE AFRAID?
That lead editorial we carried May 2 headed
"Which Candidate Are We For?" in regard to
the gubernatorial campaign, brought in a lot of
comment from our readers, mainly "Aren't you
sort of afraid to come out like that? We'd be
afraid of making enemies, losing some friends
or losing our job."
No, we're ndt afraid to come out and tell ex-
actly where we stand. We would have taken a
definite stand on our local state senator and rep-
resentative races, not to mention tlhe county com-
missioner set-tos and the tax assessor races, but
all of these folks we believe we can count as
our friends, and we didn't want to hurt their
feelings. Practically all of them, we believed,
were honest and sincere, and while we definitely
had made our selections as to whom we would
cast our ballot for,'that was our business. Had
there been any idea in our mind that any of the
candidates were dishonest or had some ulterior
motive in their mind, we would have openly
But to get back to that being afraid. There
seems to be too much of that sort of thing today.
People are becoming afraid to think freely. They
shrink from expressing viewpoints they think by
some turn of events may prove unwise at some
future date. They prefer, instead, to play it safe.
It has been brought to our attention that dur-
ing last week's election two persons, one a man
on a stretcher and the other a woman in a wheel-
chair, had to practically force election officials
to allow them to cast their ballots, the officials
maintaining that no one could go into the vot-
ing booth with them. This seems to have been a
case of a little authority going to the head. There
are exceptions to all rules, and particularly when
it comes to voting, for every American citizen
has the right, which cannot be denied him by
even the highest tribunal of the land, to express
his or her opinion at the polls. Let us hope that
no such incident will occur in the future.
About the only way 'a bachelor' makes a good
husband is jealous.

Calhoun Candidate Finds
One Vote Can Be Vital
We've heard a lot of people too
lazy to go to the polls say that
"one vdte won't make any differ-
ence" but Representative W.
L. Bailey of Calhoun county, seek-
ing re-election at .the recent pri-
miary, finds that it does.
'When the last returns were tal-
lied last week, Bailey found he was
in third place, 12 votes behind Lu-
cius Pelt. Marion Knight led the
ticket for representative.
Bailey took his defeat sportingly,
but he really was downcast after
the absentee ballots were counted,
for Mr. Pelt then led Bailey by that
narrowest of margins-one vote.

lie & Company, starting activities
in Florida when England had pos-
session of the territory between 1763
and 1784, had later obtained per-
mission of the Spanish government
to purchase this large tract of land
from the Indians in order to indem-
nify the company for losses suf-
fered. This transaction with the na-
tives was completed by a series
of treaties between 1804 and 1811.
When Florida became a territory
of the United States, the question
of the legality of these purchases
arose. After litigation extending
over a period of seven years, first
in .the superior court of Middle
Florida and then in the supreme
court of the United States, a de-
cision was made, as stated above,
by he 'latter tribunal in favor of
the successors of Panton, Leslie &
In the 14 years of American sov-
ereignty over Florida before the
case was finally adjudicated, immi-
grants had settled in the disputed
area, apparently without paying any
attention to claims of the company.
The chief settlement in the con-
tested district was Apalachicola, of
whose history prior to 1835 very
little is known. Its location at the
mouth of the Apalachicola River
seemed to insure a great future for
the infant town, since the stream
appeared destined to become the
main commercial outlet for the rich
cotton district of Western Georgia
and Eastern Alabama. The enthusi-
astic settlers probably dreamed of
a city that would rival New Or-
leans. In 'May, 1833, a newspaper,
"The Advertiser," sure sign of a
boom in those days, was started by
R. Dinsmore Westcott. Commerce
increased so rapidly that 40,00
bales of cotton were shipped from
the harbor in 1835, and numerbis
steamers plied up and down the
Suggest Founding of New Town
The bustling, thriving and opti-
mistic Apalachicolians were not in-
clined to pay- tribute to the people
to whom the United States Supreme
Court had allotted the land. They
looked about for a way to escape
supporting the Apalacicola Land
Company, an organization started
by the successors of Panton, Leslie
& Company, and yet not lose, the
profitable trade of the region.
Somebody suggested the found-
ing of a rival town on St. Joseph's
Bay, some 28 miles' to the north-
west. Since Apalachicola was at tlhe
extreme western limit of the Forbes
Purchase, the new settlement would
not be within the jurisdiction of
the hated company. It was, how-
ever, located in such close proxim-
ity to the river that the enthusias-
tic malcontents believed they could
divert the stream's commerce and
thus ruin the old town'.
The project vas one that might
have made reasonable men in more
normal times hesitate. It was not
only a question of erecting a new
town, with wharves and other trad-

ing facilities, but means of easy and
cheap transportation had to be de-
vised between the river and bay.
A bayou, called Lake Wimico, ex-
tended from the river to within a
distance of eight miles from the
proposed city. This lake, .it-was be-
lieved,,would furnish an easy pass-
age for steamers, after some dredg-
inig had been done. The intervening
land could be crossed either by a
canal or a railroad. In addition to
these obstacles there also seemed
some doubt whether the bay was
deep enough for ocean vessels. How-
ever, the promoters were undaunted
and began the most remarkable un-
dertaking that Florida had seen up
to that time, or was destined to see
for' many, years to come.

Saints Take Opening
Game of Gulf League
Visiting Oystermen Drop Tilt Due
To Lack of Competent
The St. Joe Saints took the open-
ing game of the Gulf Coast League
played here Thursday night of last
week by defeating the Apalachicola
Oystermen 17-11 before a large and,
enthusiastic crowd. ,
Eddie Meharg held the mound
for St. Joe for seven innings, being
relieved in the eighth by Tom Mc-
Daniel. The visitors were weak in
this department, using four or five
moundsmen during the course of
The first three Oystermen to bat
went out one-two-three and St. Joe
scored one run in the first on an
error when Leonard Belin hit to
the shortstop. Wilson was caught
at second on the force but a wild
throw to first by Cooper allowed
Bennie. Burke to scamper home
Apalachicola tied the score in the
second when, with two out, Harmon
was handed a walk, went to second
on a balk by Meharg and crossed
the plate on Maxwell's liner which
bounced over the head of Bucky
Walters at short.
The Oystermen made It 5-1'in the
third on a single, a walk and three
In the sixth the Oystermen again
scored one on an infield blooper by
Cooper who went to second on an
overthrow to first and came home
after Bahkster was walked and
Bennefield singled to 'center.
The Saints made it 9 to 8 in the
last of the sixth. Burke took his
second walk when hit by a pitched
ball, Wilson stretched a two-bagger
to three bases on the throw from
left field to the plate which caught
Burke for the first out. Mitchell
In the fourth the Saints tied it was handed a free pass, after which
up when Walters, and "Fish" Her-
ring singled, Meharg placed a liner
down the first 'base line to bring in
Walters, Burke was hit for a walk
to load the bases, Wilson hit thru
short to bring in Herring and Me-
harg and Burke came home after
the catch of Tom Mitchell's. long
fly to right field.
Not to. be outdone, the visitors
cami back for two in the top of
the fifth on a two-bagger by Bank-
ster and singles by Bennefield and
Belin singled to drive in Wilson.
Bert Cox' was safe at first on a
high fly to right field, but was out
at second on the force as Walters
hit through, short, but Mitchell and
Belin came home on the play. Jim-
mie Adams. Saint backstop, singled
to place Walters on third, and Her-
ring drove in Walters with a neat
single to left field.
Bobby Howell relieved Cotty -Ten-
dels on the mound in the seventh
and was nicked for singles by Wil-
son and Mitchell and a two-bagger
by Belin, Wilson coming in, on Be-
lin's bingle to make the score 10-8.
The bottom of the eighth was a
heartbreaker for Apalachicola, as
St. Joe shoved seven runs across
the plate. The visitors started the
disastrous frame with Miller on the
mound, a Brooklyn boy who is sta-
tioned at Cape San Blas. He was
replaced after giving up four hits
and walking two men to let four
Saints cross the plate. The Saints
were aided in making these runs
by costly errors by Apalachicola.
Bert Cox, right fielder accounted
for two of the counters on a long
single to left field.
The Apalachicola rooters present
took heart and shouted lustily in
the top of the ninth when a last-
minute rally was started with a
single by Harmon and a two-base
hit, by Maxwell, Harmon crossing
the plate when the pitcher was safe
on a wild throw to first. After Billy
Howell flied out to Walters, Max-
well came in from third on Perry's
slow roller down the first base line,
Perry -being out. Cooper singled to
right and Bankster singled to left
to bring in Howell for the third
run. Wagner was handed a walk
by MoDaniel and the game ended
as Harmon flied out.

Modern electric service means a large pool of power plants all
tied together by high voltage transmission lines.
When you do business with Florida Power you get, that type of
modern service. All seven of our major power plants and additional small
ones comprise an INTEGRATED system.
Long ago we abandoned the idea of generating power in small iso-
lated plants for experience proves that by using power from a systemwide
pool of plants, service is MORE DEPENDABLE. If one plant goes out of
'service for some reason or another, our dispatchers who work around the
clock can bring service to the area where needed and when needed. No
waiting no delay these trained men can shift power from one
location to another.. just about as easy as you flick your light switch.
There will be 300,000 kilowatts of power at your service by the end
of this year and more coming on the lines when needed. Our hundred mil-
lion dollar expansion program is aimed to meet your needs and the needs
of this area with .

Increased Grants In
May for Needy Cases
Dependent Children and Blind Will
Get Larger Checks Due To
Fewer On Rolls
Needy blind and dependent chil-
dren will get increased grants in
many instances in May because
there are fewer persons on the as-
sistance rolls now than there were
July 1, 1951, the start of the fiscal
year, according to Mrs. W. O. An-
lerson and Robert Bellows of this
city, who are members of the Dis-
trict 2 welfare board. Grants for
the aged have been continuously
paid at the maximum provided in
federal and state requirements.
Revised laws and regulations af-
fected many persons receiving as-
sistance. The expanded old age and
social security programs probably
resulted in many no longer needing
public assistance and stricter reg-
ulations and legal requirements
were responsible for others no
longer being on the rolls, making
additional funds available for those
meeting requirements, they said.
May grants are 'being increased
to the maximum allowed by law-
but still are short of actual needs
in many instances, the board mem-
bers said. A widow, for instance,
with no other income or living re-
source and with three young child
dren, obviously would need more
than $63 a month, although that is
the maximum which can be granted
through the welfare department.
The increases were based on ac-
tion of the state welfare board,
which some time ago approved
grants up to the legal maximum for
the biennium as funds became

More Flowers, Less Shade,
Mode for Modern Homes
Petunias Border This Front Walk.
Foundation plantings of ever-
greens, which were the conventional
treatment.in front yards throughout
.America for twenty years prior to
World War II, are now conceded to
be out of fashion.
Sunshine and flowers are being
returned to front yards from which
they were so long excluded by over-
planting. Modern houses with their
picture windows and complete ab-
sence of visible foundations, do not
require a continuous band of green
to conceal a high foundation and
."tie the house to the ground" as the
landscape designers used to say.
They get down to ground level and
seek to unite indoors and outdoors
in one area of comfortable and
pleasant living space.
To relieve the appearance of the
house from bareness, a frame about
it is desirable. This is now being
supplied in mpst cases by flowers,
with a' few shrubs or evergreens
used as accents at the house cor-
ners, where two walls meet, and at,
similar focal points.
Annual flowers are extensively
-used to border walks, and at the
base of the house walls. Flowers do
not produce shade, but require sun-
shine to make them grow. There is
a wide selection of dwarf growing,
compact and bushy annuals which:
are suitable for, tew, ctlorfl bor-
ders, which present a gay' picture
bdth to passerby, and those who
look out the picture window.
Illustrated is a curving wal-k,
planted with a border of petunias.
These are of-a large flowered, single
fringed variety. They will bloom all
summer, without the necessity of
picking off faded blossoms, because
this type of petunia does not pro-
duce much seed. unless pollen is
spread in the blossoms by hand. An-
nual flowers will continue to flower
until they produce-seed; which 's
the reason faded flowers of mos:
varieties should be picked ofl, be-
fore shed forms.
Seed catalogues list hundreds o'
annual flowers, including all the
colors of the spectrum, which can
be used for front yard flower gar-
dens. Zinnias and marigolds, which
next to petunias are the, most popu-
lar of all, have a surprising number
of forms and colors which will serve
this purpose. Asters, of all colors
except yellow, blue ageratum and
anchusa, white and purple alys-
sums, garden pinks and carnations.
the annual coreopsis which is listed
as calliopsis, calendulas, sky-blue
cynoglossum, blue lobelia, nastur-
tiums, pansies, violas, annual ph.ox,
salvias, red and blue, and verbena;s,
all serve excellently to provide color
in the front yard.
Striking effects can be achieved
by using a color 4cheme;which har-
monizes with li!.-. .ouse and plant-
ing flowers in na-.-zes ,.i Oe color,
so that each rn-i st a rn j out in har-
monious contract with the others.

"National Tax Freedom Holiday"
-th-e first day this year on which
a man can call a dollar his own-
falls on next Monday. May 19. All
the average American has earned
from January 1 to May 19 he must
pay out in taxes-local state and
This is merely another way of
saying that' our overall tax load
has increased to the point where it
now takes 38 cents out of every
dollar we earn. Out of each hour
we work, the pay for 23 minutes is
taken by government, in direct and
hidden imposts. The situation calls
to mind the concession to freedom
granted Prussian serfs centuries
ago--their masters allowed them
to work for themselves two days
out of each week. .
'Never before have Americans had
to work for more than four and a
half months to pay their taxes. In
1920 they began working for them-
selves on February 26. By 1940 the
date had advanced to March 27. In
1951 "National Tax Freedom Holi-
day" was observed on April 28,
with formal recognition by con-
gress, in a concurrent resolution
of senate and house.
In 1951, when local, state and
federal taxes were taking 32 cents
out of each dollar the average Am-
erican earned,/ the concurrent reso-
lution of congress provided that
'Tax Freedom Holiday" be symbol-
ized as a day of relief throughout
the land with "such demonstrations
as may seem appropriate, including
a prayer for deliverance." This
year, more effective and vigorous
congressional action is anticipated.
Believe it or not, but-you people
of Port St., Joe now pay more
money for taxes than for all the
food you eat. Mussolini took 40%
of his people's income. Hitler took
50%. Stalin is taking 70%. All of

WEWA FOR THIRD WIN
The St. Joe High Sh.ark baseball
team defeated the W'ewa Gatoors
this week 7 to 6 for their third
straight win. The score was tied
three times in the early innings of
this hotly-contested fray.
Wewa led 6-5 as the Sharks came
to bat in the last of the seventh.
The first two batters were retired,
but at this point the Sharks came
to life and staged a sensational
rally to score two runs and salvage
the game. McCall and Freeman
singled, Parrish walked and Wal-
ters came through with a game-
winning smash over second base.
Billy Gailliard got two for three
for St. Joe, and Billy Fred Parrish
was the winning pitcher.
