A JUST CONTENTION.


This week the Record presents a careful
prepared statement of the position of the Florida
Retail Merchants Association relative to desired
amendments to the statute laws of Florida. For
several years the people of Florida have been
asking for a revision, of the garnishment and
those other laws, which as they stand are more
in the interest of shielding those who make a
practice of beating their grocer and other deal-
ers in merchandise, than for the protection- of
any class. The Record believes that the position
of the retail merchants of Florida is the only
proper one. Honest people do not need laws to
protect them from paying their debts, and cer-
tainly the record of the past does not show that
merchants have been hard upon the wives
widows and daughters of the persistent dead

RAILROAD WOOD IS SCARCE.
Seaboard Air Line Railway Gradually Pre-
paring to Burn Coal.
In this State wood near the railroad
lines is becoming scarce. While there are
millions of cords of excellent pine w oil in
any colnti in Florhida. the years in which
those vwhl have beeln UlIpplying wood to
'he roads has exhausted tlhe supply con-
venient to tra nsrlortatlion.
h(wing to this tlie prices which the rail-
road companies haIve been forced to pay
for wiod have been climbing and they
have Iten forced to arrange to burn coill
on their lo lmnotives. The Atlantic (Coast
lIne has leen operating only a few woodl
burners, but the Sealtiard has been using
wood almost exclusively. But the Sea-

6 TIIE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.


GARBAGE PLANT SUCCESSFUL.

Sanitary Reduction and Construction Com-
pany's First Experiment South.
(arlage disl~i nal entered a lnew lihase
Wednesday in this city. The fornial opi.n-
ing of thel Sanitary Reduction and (Con-
struction Conllianly's pllalnt demonstrated
that hereafter there need le no necessity
for any city to burn its garbage. The al
litera tioins, "Making ioney out of ili-
crol's, "tu-rning garbage into gold,'"
"'wealth front waste." have now a new
meaning, k'ebriary 28. 19.ti, niarks a new
era in tile history of garbage disjlisal.
-\s announced in the lTinies-Ulnioi the
new plant was formally opened Wednes-
day morning, and the process was witness-
ed lby quite a llllnlHer of leading citizens.
At 9):30 a. ni. as mnany as could get foot-
lihol in tlhe second floor of tie plant wit-
ae-sed the first step.
A large horse hlad just been cut tup and
piece hl piece was thrust into the top of
the tank. followed lby a nlumlber of cans
full of garage, deal fish, swill. rotten
onions. etc.. until about 19.01) lpundds were
put into the lank. Not many eared to
n witness this part of tle program, but
among those who braved it were David
Warrington, meinlier of the Board of Pub-i
lie Works. Albert Drysdale. superintendentt
of streets. (;eneial W\. 1. Sebring, S. .1.
Melson of S. .1. Melson & Soin, livery sta-
bles, Dr. .1. (. Ilill. S. F. Hlosiner, A. W.
'Farnhani and other.
Plant Carefully Inspected.
Before this. however, the visitors spent
a short time in examining the peculiar
features of the machinery. The main
tank %%as open. top and Iottom. so that
could see within it. Much interest was
nianifesed in tle disiposal of the dry ref-
use. It was burned in tlhe furnace to iiake
steamlll, no other fuel lieing required. This
would hle a saving to the city of from
ten to twelve dollars a day for that mucli
liha heretofore been spent for fuel.
After the tank was closed atni scaled
steam was turmnl into the mass for an
hour or more, preparing it for the next
process, andt destroying all disease gerns.
As the heat was 300( degrees Fahrenheit.
no microle could survive that for ain hour
or more. and the company's claim that the
rvstemn is sanitary i. borne out. IThe
steamn was shut off from the inner tank
lint continued in tle jacket for five hours
longer, when the job was finished.
How Money is Made.
During the process, the 9.(M) pounds of
filthy stuff was disclosed of as follows:
Aloiit 7.(00 pounds passed off as sterilized
water, 400 pounds passed off and were
condensed into a cooler as oil. andl alnint
l.ti() pounds renlained in the tank as dry
tankage, and Ioth it and tie oil was ab-
solutely colorless.
Tlie company value the oil at 3 cents
a pundl. and tlie tankage at a cent a
Iniond. In other words tile money value
of the charge that was taken from that
tank Wednesday afternoon. according to
tle company's figures, is $28.
Burned Bad Odors.
No oldor was perceptible during tlie en-
tire process from the contents of tile tank.
The smell was all led away as a gas
unler the lboiler and made to help feed
the furnace. As it was completely eon-
sumed, of course no odlor was liercelitible
from it.
This company's system of gathering
garbage is unique. and they claim that
it is odorless and sanitary, as each place
tilt supplies tlie plant tithi garbage i-
furnished witli a tight garbage can. placed
in tie kitchen where all garbage can lie
collected.
It is replaced by ain empty can. which
has lieen thorouglilly clealseild andl he
full ean transferred Ilodily to the wagon.
and carried lience o tile plaint, and tlhui
avoid had odlorts in emptying in thei street.
and also in open vec els.

TUPELO AND THE SEASONING.

Experiments Designed to Add Another
Southern Wood to the List
Demanded.
Several causes have of late brought tllp-
elo into lore prominence tlian it formerly
enjoyed. Thie lirt of these is tle general
neid of utilizing all possible species, which
is introducing on tlie market various trees
which have had no standing so long as tlil
IHtter known kinils were freely obtainable.
A second cause is thliat tle tlre is follnd ill
goodl quantity in mixture -with cypress.
\hiclh is now receiving so miuchi attention
from lumbermen, and tihe 'csts of hlumlber-
ing cypress are so heavy that if tulielot
coulil lie lumbered with it at a lirofit this
w\ouhl iean so imuch added return to tlihe
Ihohler of cypress stulmpiage. The excel-
lence of the woonl of tupelo is also in its
favor. ulint hitherto this has wen offset byv
tile difficulties encountered ia handling thie
Iunlllier- dilliculties which have not been

of its ability tio thrive in wiet situliati ons.
Like cypress. it is piroif against tli'I
which would kill other species, and its
iistrilmtion coincides iery largely with
that of cypress. 'Thlie liest grades, of tlhe
wood are very similar to that of fellow
lpoplar; they have a fine uniform texture.
are soft and workable. and will take stain
well. Such uialitice signify a usefulness
which must lend the woodi increased imar-
ket value if its tdedency to warp. twist.
aiil "'sick-roLt" during seasonilig an l lie
,controlled. Up to the present. however.
the rliiuiremnents ot tupelo in seasoning
have been but little studied by the inann-
faeturer. It has not received the degree
of attention which is tdue to wood of suclh
adaptability.
When lumber is piled for drying, uchli
,lep'ends ulon the proper seliaraition of tlie
Iayers or coursesses" to allow tlhe air to cir-
cllatie. 'T'li's is secured ibyi iserting cros-
tlicks. which keep the loards from touch-
ing one another. Many woodls may lie'
piled with bnt little (care and yet dry
straight ail sound, lbut tllpelo luist Il
piled evenly a;nil so as to secure straight-
laid nl oirds. even at the cost of more time
aind pains. It is a (colimmlon practice tot
use for cross-sticks w\(xIl which lihas Ibeen
irregularly sawed. so that the Ioaurds are
not lield lint in the courses. Tupelo \\ill
not dry well with this treatment. Further
more. where the cross-sticks rest on the
boards, tulpelo is -inclined to rot or stain.
and before air drying can Iw brought to
practical sncce's Ihis dillieulty also inmst
he overcome.
Kiln drying is. of course. commlnonly
used by nmln llfactuirers of (ypr'es.s lumlber.
hut tupelo needs a different treat ient in
kiln drying from that given cypress and
presss manufacturers, sure of a market
for their cypress. and with their kilns con-
stantly m.ionopolized byI it. have little in-
S('duceent to experiment with tlhe les ulln-
lderst4dI tuIpelo. Nevertheless, altered
kiln-diying methils will doubltless eI use l
for tlpelo in dueil time.
In thle effort to improve both tllhe airl-
drying and kiln drying of tullplo. the liFr-
est Service is experimenting to show how
thlie Inmiitr imay best boe handled. There
can ibe li',It doubtt that the results will add
another tree to the list of southern spe-
cies which scientific treatment Ila;i placed
within t111il class of popular market woodIs.

PROSPECTING FOR PHOSPHATE.
Several Miners Will Have to Find New Lo-

Several of the pilio-]iphant miner-. of
Florida will le compelled to lind nIew ll'.i-

FARMERS ARE LATE WITH WORK.
In Florida and Georgia the Spring Has
Been Unfavorable.
Owing to the had weather wlich pre-I
vailed during the month of IFebruary the
* farmers of Georgia and Florida are behind
in preparing their ground for seed.
There has been a general complaint from
all parts of this State and the same is
true in (eorgia. There appears to lie a
manifest dislposition on the part of the
Florida farmer to curtail is i.acrealge of cot-
ton and make each acre yield more. This
is due largely to the scarcity of labor. Not
only is labor ~earce. but it is unreliable.
Most of tlhe colored men have sought work
at the sawmills. where wages are higher.
and are leaving the farms. This is plartic-
ularly true of this State.
SAVING EVERYTHING.
Lumber Manufacturers Are Now Utilizing
a Great Deal of the Waste.
The great demand the high price of lum-
her has had one good eirel iiffll n tlie Stlate

8 TTIE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.


HOW SEASONING AFFECTS TELE-
PHONE AND TELEGRAPH POLES.

Experiments Toward Economy in the Use
of a Product Which Must Maintain
8oop0oo Miles of Lies.
With the life of telephone and telegraph
poles at its present hinit, the 8U00,OU miles
of existing lines, requiring 32,000,000 poles,
nlust be renewed approximately tour times
before trees suitable to take their place
can grow. A pole lasts in service about
twelve years, on the average, but is made
from a tree about i60 years old. In other
words, to mlaintaii a continuous supply
five times as many trees must be growing
in the forest as thlre ale poles in use.
The severity of this drait upon forest re-
sources by tile telephone and telegraph
companies is obvious enough. Just as in
the case of railroad tics, the question ot
pile supply has thrust itself into pronii-
nence. To lengthen the life of poles, and
in this way to moderate demand and con-
serve future supplies, has become an iim-
portant matter, allecting the public as well
as private interests.
Since 1902 the Forest Service has been
making a thorough study of the preserva-
tive treatment of poles and of the value
of the seasoning in relation to treatment.
In this work its first object. has been, as
in its studies of cross-ties and construction
timbers, to make the timber last as long
as possible, so as to check the annual de-
nmand for renewal and thus k'ssen so far ai
possible the drain upon tile forest. Co-op-
erat ng with telephone and telegraph com-
panies. railroads, lumber companies and in-
dividuals, it has urged forward a series of
experiments covering all phases of the
problem, from the question of the best sea-
son for cutting, through subsequent stages
of handling, to the final setting of the
pole. Sonie of the most important results
obtained deal with tile seasoning process.
Seasoning was studied in the tirst place
to determine the rate at which poles be-
come air dry, that is, lose as much mois-
ture as they will part will through evap-
oration in the open air. The time of cut-
ting was also carefully considered. hx-
periment proved that poles cut in winter
dry more regularly than those cut at other
seasons, and also show a greater loss in
moisture at the end of six months' seas-
oning. The advantages of winter cutting
are, therefore, even drying, with a mini-
imum liability to check, and light weight-
an obvious advantage for shipment by
freight. Spring or summer cutting secures
a more rapid loss of moisture at first.
owing to tile temperature, but only for
three or four months. At the end of from
six to eight months siring and summer cut
poles are found to have dried only three-
quarters as much as wintrr-cu po!es.
Spring and summer cutting, hoee ve-r.
would result in saving in freight an,l in-
creased durability if tile poles are to be
shipped and nused within three or four
months after cutting.
The second point to lie dctterm'nec was
the degree of shrinkage in circumference
during air seasoning. This was found to be
very slight, averaging but little over 0.5
per cent at the butt and 0.6 per cent. at
the top. The rapid shrinkage of w !ood does
not begin until the percentage of moisture
is reduced lower than is Iossible in the
case of telepilone and telegraph 1pole in
out-of-door seasoning.
Tle effect of soaking in water upon the
rate of seasoning was ithe third of the
problems dealt with. The .experiments
substantiate tie common opinion that Ipol s
soaked from two to four weeks susle-l
quently season at a iatlerially incrcasled
rate.
Finally. it was found that checking in
tlie coIure of seasoning is not serills wheiil

CAUSE FOR ALARM.
If it is true tliat the (reeks have taken

dustry as reports would indicate, and that
they ;iare threatening by their manner o1
opeIlation to exterminate sollnges Oil ilthe
'lorida. sponge reefs. it is high time that
the Illatter ;was receiving idoth vigorous
and decisive action.
Stateilmelnts which ought to Ile relied

der toot when dl\i ing, and if this is tile ease
it ca;In IIe reildily Seen that it will not
reiluire nmuch tinll to do incalculable liarm.
Sulonging is one of the great industries
of Florida. It is anll industry in which
Florida ranks iirist. and there have been a
great many families who have engaged in
it ou legitimiate and careful lines for years.
It is not right that foreigners le allowed
to (i1iti-e in and not only capture the in-
dustr\y. lbut in sponging ruin the prospects
for till fultullre.
IBy all means let something hle done.
Tlihe liecord will appilaud any ellort, on the
part of those interested to rid the indus-
try of these sharks, if these efforts are
directed under tile law. Legitimate action
along thlie lines cannot lte too severe.

LEGISLATION NEEDED.
The Florida Retail Merchants' Associa-
tion deserves sllccess in its efforts to,
amlend (oile of tlie statutory laws of Flor-
ida. which iare doing more in their present
shape to protect the Ipersistent, dead-beat

of the irresponsible husband, who Imay

There is somi e reason in this arguinnt

the Slal for this protection. Their high

They ask nothing from their State which
would asist theml in taking thle goods of
a merchant and then turning their lacks
upon thel dealer when tlie ill for what
they hald consumed wus presented. It is
not fair to the "wives, widows iand or-
ihans" of this State to raise such lan argu-
nlent.
O)n tlhe other hand, it is not tie worthy

The principle is wrong. Change it.

GENUINE PUBLIC SPIRIT.
Thle :llerd is not inclined to g\'e voice
to the a-sertlion- of thliose who argue that
the ilin, when the pine forests of Florida
and tiller industries of which they form lthe
base. \will have vanishedl is near at hand.
To the -contrary the naval store industry

that those who nre leading in this move-
nment to take -idvantage of thie great
opplrtunliliti of Florid i for tlihe growing of
stock, are along those ,who alre at the
headi of thie lilumbier and naval stores in-
dustries of the1 South. Already\ these eap-
tains of industry and enterprise have
inanifested their confidence il this State
as a stock producing tield by investing
large capital iln hnlled stock and by
going into tlie Iusiness with a determIina-
tion to \ill and demonstrate to tie Ileople
of Florida w\\at their State has to offer
in this 'ayt. This is a work which for the
State is more valuale, than tihe average
citizen is likely to estimate. The slui'ess
of the experiments which have been made
llas already pushed the State( to tlie front
as a stock growing colntlr and lias in-
(duced several oif tile Ienl of Illeains to
engage in stoc-k raising on an extensive
scale. The efforts on tile part of Messrs.
('hambliss. ILawle\ !aitskill and others to
lilln a use for ltie thousand's of acres of
what is no\w cla-sed as waste aiilds is
Ineeting with ithe approval of the people in
all parts of Florida. It is a most com-
mendable enterprise and their State will
soon, see the extent of tlhe work which
they are accompllishing along this line.
It is gratifying to note that those who
have had a hand in developing thle pine
product's are in thlie lead in tlie work of
finding use for thle lanis when the pine
\will have passed away.

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 11


STEADY PROGRESS OF ALACHUA.
Railroad Extension Adds New Life to
Business.
"I was born and reared in the West End
of Alachua County," remarked County Tax
Assessor W. W. Colson, who has just re-
turned from that section Tuesday, to the
Gainesville Sun. "but never in all my life,
anywhere, have 1 seen such progress and
prosperity as is going on there now. This
prosperity is not confined to one district or
one section, but is general from Newberry
west to the Suwannee river. The extension
of the .lacksonvIlle and Southwestern Rail-
road from Newherry west seems to have
put new life in the country, and on every
hand if you do not see the thrifty farm.
well cultivated, you may look upon ex-
tensive naval stores farms and immense
saw mills. You may quote me as saying
that the old West End and her people are
coming to the front, and will yet show
Florida thing or two in the line of prog-
ress."
Mr. Colson states that the J.acksonville
and Southwestern Railroad will construct
a branch line from Trenton to points south
in Levy county, presumably to tle (um-
mer Lumber Company's camnp. The cut-
evting of the right-of-way has already be-
gun, and it is safe to say that this exten-
sion will be pushed as rapidly as possible,
as is all the other work of this road west
of Newberry.
Mr. Colson states that the town of Ty-
ler, where the immense mills and turpen-
tine retorts of the Tyler Lumber Com-
pany are located, is the largest and most
progressive town in the State for its age.
Established a little more than a year ago,
it has grown to have a population of about
five hundred, and the buildings ae all
up-to-date, notwithstanding they are con-
atructed of wood. "The merchants there
are doing a fine business and altogether
money seems plentiful." he said. ,
The new plant of the Tyler Lumber
Company is one of the largest and most
modern in this section of Florida. It has
a tremendous capacity, cutting both cy-
press and yellow pine. and has a large re-
source of both. The Tyler Company also
ope-ates the new retort system of making
turpentine, and altoirether the firm em-
ploys from 250 to 300 hands. They have
an almost inexhaustible acreage rf timber,
and the enterprise is destined to prove a
big thing for the people of the immediate
vicinity.

GROWERS TO ORGANIZE.
Fruit and Vegetable Men to Get Together
on West Coast.
There is a movement on foot for the
organization off Florida fru:t and vege-
table growers for the systematic selling
of their products. It is announce that
Polk county will lead in this movement
and many prominent growers of that coun-
ty have signed a call for a meeting to be
held in Bartow, Polk County, March 6.
The call, signed by the growers of Polk
county, sets fo:th the intention to have
the organization cover the State. with a
central office in Jacksonv'le to receive
and distribute orders. Local organizations
are requested to co-operate with the State
organization.
The call for the mass meeting, to be
held in Bartow, March 6. is signed by
orange men, vegetable g owners. bankers.
merchants and numerous o'lers, and the
object is stated to he to consider ways and
means. All papers throughout the Sta:e
are requested to announce this meeting
and urge co-operation
The plan of the American Society of
Equity, endorsed by the Natio-al Farmers
Siongress at its last annual mce'ing held
in Richmond, Va., is at the disp-sal of
those inte ested, is an announcement made
in the call.
The fruit and vegetabhe growers of tle
West (Oast are following the plan of tl'e
East Coast Growers who formed an asso-
elation over a year ago.
KNOX'S RATE BILL.


at length for the information of the sen-
ators on the day of introduction.
Senator Knox s bill broadens the House
bill and contains a provision for review by
the courts of the orders of the Interstate
Commerce Commission. It provides that
when a rate is unreasonable the commis-
sion shall order it reduced, such reduced
rate to be the maxilmunm; enforces the
commission's orders to change a practice.
Section 5, which was deemed essential
to the constitutionality of the measure pro-
vides for a review by circuit courts to test
the lawfulntss of the Interstate Commerce
Commission's order, when the carrier or
party affected institutes proceedings alleg
ing "violation of its or his rights," etc.
The commission is to prescribe when its
orders shall be effective; may establish
through routes between points where not
maintained by the lines complained of, and
establish joint maximum rates and their
division between carriers. Appeal is al-
lowed from the final decree of the circuit
court only to the Supreme Court and with-
in thirty days, no appeal to operate as a
stay or supersedeas.

NORTH GEORGIA SETTLERS.

Hundreds of Families Moving in from the
Upper Part of the State.
Moultrie tCounty, Ga., is being rapidly
filled up with good, substantial citizens
trom the middle and northern portions of
tle State. A large number of families
from those sections have come down this
season. Only a day or two ago a train of
wagons arrived from White county, bring-
ing several families.
The railroad officials report the arrival
of hundreds of immigrants, seventy-five
families having been unloaded at one sta-
tion. They have come in companies rang-
ing from one family to 100 people. It is
estimated that the population of Colquitt
county has been increased by several
hundred this winter.

CYPRESS TANKS
Are Best by Every Test


Cypress withstands the effects of heat and moisture
better than any other wood, shrinks and swells less
than other woods, is impervious to acids, holds paint
well and lasts for ages without decaying. Located
as we are, right in the great cypress forests, we are
able to secure the best selection of the wood and at
very low prices. We have been building tanks for
more than a quarter of a century and boldly assert
that no tanks are better built or will last longer.

THlE WEEKLY INI STI'IAL RE(O!). 19


Judge Locke Effectually Blocks Governor's

Drainage Scheme


THE NATIONAL BANK OF JACKSONVILLE


JACKSONVILLE. FLA.


Judge Locke, by declaring void the acts
of the Board (of lirainage Commissioners in
levying the special tax iminHsed to, secure
funds for draining the Everglades, and by
continuing the injunction restraining the
collection of this lax, has ellectually
checked i the catr.ling oull of the sellmei4
of governor r lro'ward for lowering like
Okeechohee and draining the Everglades.
An aplwal will probably lie taken at once
to the Itnited States Circuit Court of Ap-
peals, hbut Illndinig a reversal of IlJudge
IAwcke hb that Iwisy. and the decision ren-
dered yesterday is in strictest accord with
previous decisions tlhait have MeIIn handedli
down by thie higher courts, there is nowf
no way open to secure funds for carrying
out this pet scheme of (Governor lIroward.
Nothing ca;n I.e l one until onile new a;cion
shall Ibe takeIn by the ILegisllture.
The decision of .ludge I cke is one ot
the most imllortant that has iwen handed
down in the United States Court in some
time. as the results vitally affect the en-
tire State, and lar e by no means limited
solely to that Isortilln of the State that
will lie most immediately allected by the
drainage of the Everglades.
One vital question. that of the legal
status of the special tax levy made by tlhe
Board of Drainage commissionerss and tlhe
constitutionality of the act of tie Igis-
lature delegating such lpowrs to then, wa
considered by .JudIge locke sutlicient to de-
ternine what nation the court should take
in the matter. and on it alone he sustains
the complainants, the Southern States
Land & Timlner Company. in their plea to
have the collection of this special tax re-
strained.
No written opinion was handed down by
the court, but in announcing his decision
Judge Iwoke summed up the vital ques-
tions involved as follows:
"The act which is now under considera-
tion leaves to a delegated agent, a board
of executive administrative officers, this
most important question. I c on-sider tlhe
Legislature has so far departed from the
requirements of the Constitution of the
State as to render any action by such
oeard in determining what linds were sub-
jeet to assessment, void."
In briefly reviewing the case. .udge
Locke stated vye-erday that not onlly the
allegations of the bill of complaint, but
also also the preliminary answer of thle
defendants and the mass ;of literature, con-
sisting of affidavits. mIe-sages, reports and
historical matters of different kinds, but
all introduced on the same subject, and
bv both parties. showed that the case
pending was not one of ordinary and
usual drainage.
Everything pointed directly to a spec-
ial scheme or plan for draining the Ever-
glades.
The court called attention to the fact
tlat such a scheme had been contemplat'ed
by public men of the State for more than
fifty years. and had been repeatedly can-
sidered and discussed.
A very large portion of the 20.(WN).O0()
acres of swamp anti overflowed land. grant-
ed to tile Stae te by the United States by
the act of 1 510 ihad.lludge Locke 1)intted
out. heen used and appropriated for the
drainage and reclamation of the swanmp
and overflowed lands of the State. yet
tlere appeared to remain the vast extent
of the so-called EvergladeIs.
The defendants, in their preliminary an-
swer, state that they have had extensive
surveys and examininations made toulchiiing
the practicabifly (of the drainage of tit
Everglades. and that a plan Ihas been
adopted and would Ie put into effect upolln
a rece ipt of a sulflicient almont from the
drainage acreage lax. if their efforts wIre
not interfered with.
All plainly showed. ithe courl held. that
tile scheme and Iplan ulpon which the al-
leged as.,ssessment had leeln made. was this
extensive work.
The great ilue-lion heretofore. -aiid
.lldge I[K'ke. has not been the physical
imlpossibil:ty or in 'practicability of tle
work. but tile olitainiing of sufficient funds
with which to open ithe numerous exten-
sive and exis'nsive canals which would he
necessary to drain such an extent of land.


Then cane one of thle most important
portions of .Ildge lockei's decis,:on, in
which he said, in part:
"To determine such an important ques-
lion, to select 'lsueh lands, and to lix upon l
then the character o(f aesessibilty for tlhe
purposes of this vast work tor tlhe Itntlefi
of an entire State, should certainly leq I ire'
a direct and positive action by the legis-
lature.
"IThis hias been held by tie sulpren
c 1ourt i ll It ime11 'roils leases. anlldl is III'1111-1
tiona ly the lawl that the deIIIe: in ing of
what lands can ~le asslsed for such lItpb-
tic inprlovemen ts is a legi-lative a.itin .
and if the 1( wf r is dehlegated to 1 co11111ni-
s 4o or other agency, notice Ilust ihe givell I
aml thie owner Ihve an 4pl0>rtlunity toi
conlest the question of benefit deriveld.
"lThe act which is now under consid'era-
tioll lees toi a delegated agent, a board
of executive and administrative officers.
>\ith no legislative powers, this most im-
loTrtant q Cuestion.
"I consider the legislature has s t far de-
parted front the requirements of the cn,,n-
stitlution of tle State, as to render Iany
action hy such ;, hoard, in determining
what lands w"ere subject to as.lmentill.
void."
This Judge Locke considered tle one vi-
tal question sufficient to determine the
matter att issue, without considering or
passillg uponll tihe numerous other questions
which had been presented and considered.
The order was then made continuing tlhe
injunction that restrairs tlhel collection of
the special tax, pending the further order
of the court.
Two Courses Open.
Two courses are now ofen to the defend-
ants in the suit. viz: governorr Broward
and others.
A motion may he made for a rehearing
on the points raised, and ulmon the denial of
this, the appeal miay be taken to the
t'uited States circuit court of alleals aind
eventually, if necessary, to the I'llited
States supreme court. Or the defendanis
may file an answer to the bill of complaint
and endeavor to raise some additional
questions and points not heretofore brought
out.
The latter course is the one less likely
to lIe takell. and file nesft nlmove in tile case
will undoubtedly lte tlhe currying pill if an
appeal from the decision of Judge Liocke.
The complainants in tlhe ease are repre-
sented by Attorneys E. ,I. L'Engle. Cooler
& Cooler and P1'. A. Van.Aglnew. The de-
fendants are represented! by Attorney *;en-
eral IV. II. Ellis and former governorr \V.
S. .lenanings.

Another Positive Opinion Against Ever-
glades Drainage Scheme.
(Continued from page 9
as in the upper Everglades. The water
flows south.
"The draining of the cypress lands gen-
erally in South Florida. with the experi-
ence I have lad, is that fires in cypress
timber is a destruction to all timber. an.i
the taking away of the water will kill the
timber. Right around tlhe country where
I have lived. I have seen. in the cypress
swamps, both the timber killed fronl lack
of water anid by tthe tire which gets into
the muck and eats tine timber liup.
Lowering of Okeechobee.
"With regard to tlwi lowering of Lake
O keechobee six or seven feet. it will effect
only about ten miles around like Okeecho-
bee, covering the marshes that surround
the lake and some strips of marsh near
the mouth of the Kissinimee and Cahlosa-
hatchee rivers, and Fish Eating Creek."
The affiant closes his affidavit by aflirmn-
ing that he owns no land in tile drainage
district, is in no wise affected by the levy-
ing and collecting of 1the special drainage
tax, and has. therefore, no |personal inter-
est in the carrying out or the failure iof
the drainage plan of governor r Broward.

heen paying good pri,'-r for stock and has
been doing all in its Ipower to encourage
the growing of the best stock. Tle nreel I
for sich a plant has been great and it is
to be hoped that the efforts of the .con-

With the growing of good stick in Flor-

to the State.
