clamation. Yes, it is for the carnival. It
is the grand arch that is to mark the
entrance to the "Wonderway," where, one
week from today, all of the great attrac-
tions engaged by the carnival association
are to be located.
The Jacksonville carnival will open at
3 o'clock Monday afternoon, November
5th, and will close at midnight, Saturday,
November 10th. The opening ceremonies,

the various features of hippodrome work,
first made famous in the great Roman hip-

above, is practically the plan set forth in
the "Brobston resolution."
That resolution, which has been in-
dorsed by the Jacksonville Board of Trade
and the Turpentine Operators' Association,
calls for the establishment of a Florida,
bureau of immigration, through legislative
enactment. the object and purpo-e of which
-hall be to bring immigrants of the class
desired into Florida.
The resolution also provides for co-ope-
ra'inn with Alabama. (Georgia and South
Carolina, and. when a joint organization is
perfe-ted, for having this organization
wear the expense of keeping agents in for-
eign countries to seek out the immigrants
desired. This would reduce the expenses
of each State to the minimum and would
guarantee the class of immigrants desired.

The "Wonderway" will be approached
through the great electric entrance at
Eighth and Market streets, and will con-
tinue to Ninth street, and thence east on
Ninth and continue to Liberty street.
These streets will be brilliantly festooned
with electric lights.
On the "Wonderway" there will be from
twenty to thirty individual attractions, all
of them active and of a high order. Every-
thing will be clean, up-to-date and pleas-
ing. Every effort is being made to keep
out fake shows, gambling devices and in-
decency. The "Wonderway" will be par-
ticularly intended to furnish amusement to
the great throngs of men, women and chil-
dren of a nature that will make them feel
better for having visited it. There will
be no freakishly deformed people, snake-
eaters and such fakes to disgust and nau-
seate. The "Wonderway" has been plan-
ned to please the refined.
There will be special carnival days, such
as Horse Show Day, Children's Day, Mili-
tary Day and so on.
The railroads and all transportation
lines will sell reduced rate tickets from all
points in Florida and South eGorgia. The
rates are one fare for the round trip,
plus 25 cents, or one-halfl the regular
rates. Military companies, bands, etc., get
a rate of one cent a mile for the distance
The admission to the "Wonderway"
will be free. The individual attractions qn

cents. The admission to the hippodrome

one. Florida now has only to get in line

4 THI WEEKLY ITNTDUS7AL RECORD.
HEW YORK 1MA WHO SENT IMMI-
GRANTS TO FLORIDA IN TROUBLE.
Those Floridians who have been follow-
in gthe different peonage cases that have
arisen in Florida during the past few
months will read with interest the news
that S. S. Schwartz of New York has been
indicted by the United States grand jury
and his license to conduct a labor agency
has been revoked.
Schwartz is the proprietor of the New
York agency that sent to Florida the men
engaged by Mr. F. J. O'Hara, through the
agency of representatives of Rt. Rev. Bon-
aventure F. Broderick of Staatsburg, N.
Y. The men contracted for, were, under
the contract, to have been Italians, seeking
homes here, and who would be eprmanent.
The organization sending them, or sup-
posed to be sending them at least, was
the Italian-American Society organized by
Instead of Italians Mr. O'Hara received
a consignment of what appeared to be
German Jews. They were dissatisfied with
their work and one of them, when under
oath at a hearing before Commissioner
E. O. Locke, stated that work in the sun
"made my skin peel off."
These were the men who preferred the
peonage charges against Mr. O'Hara. In-
asmuch as all of them were sent here by
the Schwartz labor agency, the following
from the New York Commercial, will be
read with interest:
"Commissioner Bogart of the bureau of
licenses revoked yesterday the licenses held
by Sigmund S. Schwartz, who runs em-
ployment at No. 113 First Street and No.
"Mr. Bogart said yesterday that
Schwartz, who did a larger business than
another labor agent in the city, had been
indicted by the United States grand pury,
as a result of the investigation which has
been made by the federal authorities into
"Schwartz has been sending contract la-
borers to the South, where, according to
the evidence which had been presented,
the men had been illtreated and abused.
Agents in this city, Mr. Bogart said, re-
ceive from $1.50 to $2 for each laborer
sent to the South, and as some of the
agencies get orders for as many as 5,000
men at a time, they are making large in-
comes from the business of shipping men
to what Mr. Bogart says is practically
The brief announcement to the effect
that Assistant Attorney General Russell
was in Atlanta at work on peonage cases,
aroused considerable interest here inas-
much as this prosecuting officer has, it is
understood, been ordered to Florida in
December to assist in prosecuting defend-
ants indicted for peonage.
This fact lends interest to his work in
Atlanta, where peonage is now being in-
vestigated by the United States grand
jury. The Atlanta Constitution of yes-
terday morning, speaking of the conditions
in Georgia says, among other things:
"The federal grand jury for the northern
district of Georgia is now investigating
charges of peonage brought against a num-
ber of citizens of this tSate as the result
of an investigation which has been con-
ducted by Assistant Attorney General
Charles W. Russell, who has been in Geor-
gia for the past ten days.
"The investigation was brought to light
b ythe presence around the federal build-
ing yesterday of a number of foreigners
who claim to have been held in bondage
by Georgians living down the West Point

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. I
Distinguished Attorney Makes Strong Argue-
ment for Defeat of amendment.
To a somewhat small, but thoroughly
appreciative audience Maj. St. Clair-
Abrams last night discussed the proposed
drainage amendment, logically built up a
strong argument against its adoption, and
ended with an earnest, eloquent and force-
ful appeal to the voters to reject it, as the
most dangerous thing that had ever been
proposed since the infamous Force bill had
been killed in the halls of Congress.
Major Abrams spoke in his happiest
vein, injecting considerable humor into his
address and spicing the entire discussion
with bits of brilliant sarcasm. Every ar-
gument was concisely presented, and
though the entire address took but about
an hour to deliver, the field was thoroughly
covered by the speaker.
Major Abrams was introduced to the
audience by Attorney Walter M. Davis, in
Question of Corporations.
Then the speaker passed to the cry the
adherents of drainage are raising, namely,
that it is the corporations, the railroads,
and the "land-grabbing companies" that
are fighting the amendment. This cry he
characterized as the cloak used by the
demagogue to shield and hide his real ob-
ject and then pointed out that while Gov.
Broward had been attacking one certain
railroad, he had made no mention of the
Louisville and Nashville or of the Atlantic
Next came an instructive quotation of
figures. Pointing out that it was esti-
mated in round numbers, that there were
2,500,000 acres of public land owned by the
State, Maj. Abrams declared that of this
acreage the Atlantic Coast Line claimed
1,053,528 acres, and the Louisville and

At this point in his address Major
Abrams stated that he would probably be
asked whence came the money that paid
his expenses and whence that which paid
for the band that played last evening. He
replied to the supposed question by stat-
ing that he was speaking at the request

How Graft Sustained.
Major Abrams then stated that it had
been asked how graft could be sustained
by the drainage board and in answer he
pointed out the following facts:
The legislature cannot be mandamused
and compelled to pass a law, even though
the constitution says they shall pass that
law. If the amendment is passed, and
a contract awarded under it, then, no mat-

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 9
A Dignified and St
Venus, DeSoto county, Fla., Oct 10, 1906.
To the Voters of Florida:
We, the undersigned citizens and tax-
payers, living and holding property within
what is known as the Everglades Drain-
age District, desire to appeal to the peo-
ple of the State of Florida for their as-
sistance in defeating the proposed consti-
tutional amendment, known as "amend-
ment to Article XVI," confident as we are
that the adoption of this amendment would
work a hardship on the undersigned and
feeling that the taxation feature is one of
great injustice, designed as it is to levy
taxes upon a small territory of the State
S for what the Board of Drainage Commis-
sioners at Tallahassee claim would be of
great benefit to the people of the entire
State, a claim which the undersigned posi-
tively deny for reasons which are herein
specifically set forth. At the same time
we desire to carefully present our reasons
for this appeal to the people of other parts
of Florida, so as they may be better ac-
quainted with our views before voting to
burden others with a tax which we re-
spectfully present is unjust, unfair and a
great and perpetual hardship to those
whose lands are to be burdened with this
special tax. Our reasons for this appeal
we respectfully present as follows:
A Hardship to Taxpayers.
First. A special tax of five or ten cents
per acre, levied by the drainage commis-
sioners under the provisions of this pro-
posed amendment to the constitution would
be a great hardship to those in the drain-
age district, even were they to receive the
benefit claimed from draining the Ever-
glades. But the further injustice of taxing
lands so excessively whm it would injure
rather than benefit the owners of same, is
strikingly apparent. We respectfully sub-
mit that this plan of Governor Broward
and the board of drainage nomni-."ners
to tax lands which are high and dry for
draining or reclaiming other territory, is
at variance with all American precedents
and traditions. If the entire State is to be
benefited by drainage because of the prop-
erty which would accrue to the State as
one of the results of a successful draining
of the Everglades, why is it proposed to
tax only a few The proposed amendment
to the constitution of Florida, when con-
sidered in connection with the boundaries
of the present drainage district, does tax
those whose lands are where they could
possibly receive no benefit, and to the con-
trary would be injured.
Would Damage, Not Improve.
Second: From our knowledge derived
from a residence ranging from thirty down
to ten years in this section, and by fre-
quent visits to nearly all of the Ever-
glades district, we contend that far from
bein a benefit and reclaiming land, drain-
age of the Everglades would damage those
lands which are now said to be overflowed,
for hundreds of thousands of acres of
marsh lands now used for grazing would
be rendered .alueless and the prairie lands

A vote for the drainage amendment may
be a vote to tax your land to the extent
of ten cents an acre. Read the amend-
ment and study it carefully before you
vote on Tuesday.
Perhaps the Savannah combination will
take a long rest before again attempting
to bear the naval stores market. Their
last attempt appears to have been a great
failure. At any rate it indicated strongly
that the game cannot be successfully work-
ed upon the operators and honest factors.
KILL DRAINAGE AMENDMENT.
Naval stores operators and those who
are engaged in the manufacture of lum-
ber ought to regard the proposed drainage
constitutional amendment as offering a
great danger to their interests. While the
passage of this amendment would work
great injury on every commercial and in-
dustrial interests in the State of Florida,
it would fall particularly severe on the
naval stores operators and sawmill men,
who have to either buy or lease large tracts
of land in order to operate. Should the
amendment pass it would affect millions of
acres of timbered lands in this State, by
imposing a special tax limited to ten cents
an acre upon same.
Naval stores operators and those who
are engaged in the sawmill business may
readily see the danger of such an amend-
ment. It would mean a great deal to them
and result in fastening upon some of them
a tax from which they could hardly hope
to secure relief. In the drainage district
which was laid out by the Governor and
his board of drainage commissioners there
are millions of acres of timber lands which
would be taxed for this experiment which
the Governor of Florida is carrying on.
hosee who have lands in that part of the
State and which are taxed can give a fair
idea of the injustice in the present plan
of taxation, a plan which would be fast-
ened upon the State were this amendment
to pass. A great part of this land is high
and dry and there is none of this character
of land which could reap any benefits from
this scheme if it was to be successful. But
this constitutional amendment would give
to the Governor of Florida and his Board
of Drainage Commissioners the power to
operate in any part of the State and would
seriously affect the interests of those who
hold land in any part of Florida.
Every owner of land in this State ought
to do what he can to defeat this iniquitous
scheme which the Governor of Florida and
some of his advisors have endeavored to
fasten upon the people of this State.
AMERICA'S PROSPERITY SHOWN.
This Country Getting Large Share of the
Washington, Oct. 30.-Charles H. Treat,
treasurer of the United States, submitted
his annual report to the secretary of the
treasury to day and in reference to the
noticeable transactions said, in part:
"The next result of the ordinary reve-
nues and expenditures for the fiscal year
1906 was a surplus of $25,669,322, as com-
pared with a deficit of $23,004,228 for the
preceding year. A continuation of these
favorable conditions is reflected in the
transactions for the first quarter of the
current fiscal year, in which the revenues
were $5,871,314 in excess of the expendi-
"The available cash balance on June
30, 1906, was $180,680,454, an increase of
$35,211,862, as compared with that of
twelve months earlier.
"The monetary stock of the country
took on a growth during the year of $186,-
806,277, of which $118,050,777 was in gold,
$5,450,396 in silver, and $65,392,654 in nat-
ional bank notes, while the treasury notes
decreased $2,027,000. The aggregate stock
of money at the close of the year was $3,-
069,976,591, of which $2,736,446,628 was in
"The national bank depositories have
been utilized during the year as a medium
through which the excessive accumulation
of money in the treasury was restored to
the channels of trade. The balance in
banks to the credit of the general fund
May 5 was $102,708,123, the highest point
reached during the fiscal year.
"The national bank notes presented for
redemption during the year amounted to
$296,;92,885, as against $308,298,760, in
"The treasury holdings of gold continues
to attract the attention of financiers, both
at home and abroad. It is apparent from
the continued accumulation that a large
share of the product of the gold mines of
the world is brought to the United States.
The gold coin and bullion in the treasury
June 30, 1905, amounted to $706,592,399,
and at the close of the fiscal year 1906, it
had advanced to $807,051,690. By Octo-
ber 26, it attained a maximum at $877,-
"The United States paper currency is-
sued amounted to $629,896,000, and the re-
demptions were $577,445,100, a net increase
in the volume outstanding of $52,450,900.
"The pressure from bankers and others
for a larger and more regular supply of
small denominations of currency continues
unabated, while the treasury is without
resources for the issue of small bills to
comply with their urgent requests. It is
to be expected that congress will ultimate-
ly enact the legislation that it has under
consideration, which will bring full relief
from the existing conditions."
0 GREAT CONVENIENCE TO NAVAL
The Industrial Record is in receipt of a
set of books especially prepared by Mr. J.
E. Starke, of Gardner, Fla., for naval stores
operators with a view of simplifying book-
There are a great many features of
this system which appeals to the man in
the woods. It gives him the opportunity
of keeping his accounts in the most simple
tabulated form and makes the task not
only easy, but reduces the time required
to attend to this important adjunct of
the naval stores business.
There are three books in this set, known
as the Starke system of book-keeping for
turpentine farms. The first begins with
a record of lands purchased and leased.
There is a space for accounting for every
acre and of keeping a record which is easy
to refer to at any time.
The second book is that of daily quota-
tions and record of still. This gives the
opportunity for the operator to arrange
his account of turpentine and rosin and
to keep a perfect record of what is on
hand, including crude turpentine.
The third book refers to consignments
and sales. The system gives the opera-
tor the opportunity of easily keeping up
with every feature of the business. He
can tell the number of acres of land he
has in operation, the number of boxes, the
daily record of dipping, what is at the
still, on the platform and shipped. In
addition to this, his daily quotations and
account of sales are kept where they can
be referred to at a glance.
Mr. Starke has had the system patented
and will have the books on sale in the
near future. The Record regards this sys-
tem as the best and most perfect ever
prepared for any business.
NO NEWS OF SCHOONER WILLIAM H.
WARREN SINCE STORM.
Pensacola, Oct. 29.-There is great un-
easiness here for the safety of the fishing
schooner William H. Warren, of the fleet
of Warren & Co., which sailed from this
port for the fishing grounds about one
week before the hurricane. The smack
has not since been heard from and the
fear is that she was caught in the path
of the hurricane and went down with all
hands. The crew consisted of the captain
and seven men, and while practically a new
and very staunch vessel, it is not believed
that she could ride out such a hurricane,
especially if she was in the path of the
blow. It is feared that the smack was
proceeding to the fishing grounds and was
caught in the hurricane and that nothing
will ever again be heard of the vessel.
Other smacks from Pensacola have made
from two to three trips to the fishing
grounds and upon their return reported
that the smack had not been sighted, nor
had any of the vessels spoken sighted
the missing schooner. oNt only are the
members of the firm uneasy about the big
schooner, but also their friends and rela-
tives. This is the only Pensaeols schooner
which has not been heard from since the
Large quantities of terra cotta pipe
continue to arrive in the city from New
Orleans, and be placed upon the ground
preparatory to use when the work of
constructing the sewerage and drainage
system is started. The piping is what has
delayed the commencement for over a
month, the railroads refusing to accept
the shipments owing to the condition of
the tracks some weeks since, and now that
it has begun to arrive it is anticipated that
the work will soon begin. The steam
ditchers, which are to be used, and other
excavating machinery, however, has not
reached here yet, but some portions of the
work can start without these machines.
Contractor Storrie of New Orleans has his
forces organized, and his engineers have
been here for several weeks, but the in-
specting force of the city has not yet been
selected. These men are to be paid by the
contractor, but chosen by the city, and are
to represent the latter under the super-
vision of the representatives of Engineer
T. Chalkly Htton.
The immense amount of business that
is being done by packets plying out of
Pensacola to points up rivers and sounds,
as well as along the gulf coast, has caused
the establishment of another line between
this port and Milton, Fla. Capt. Jimmie
Rouse, well known among steamboat men,
is to be at the head of the new line which,
for the present, will operate one large
freight and passenger steamer, running not
only to Milton, but also to points as far
up the Blackwater river as twenty miles
above Milton. Capt. Rouse went to New
Orleans to close a deal for a large steamer
of light draught, which he will place in
this trade. It is expected that he will
bring the vessel around and commence
operations at once. The new line has a
guarantee of a large amount of business
from naval stores operators above Milton
on the Blackwater river, who desire to
ship their product to Pensacol for market.
but are now unable to do so without much
The Young Men's Christian Association
today secured control of the property on
Little Bayou of the Pensacola Boat Club,
together with all boats, racing shells, cars,
equipment, etc., and it is announced that
the property will be improved and the
boat house reopened after being closed for
years. The club property is beautifully
situated on the shores of Little Bayou and
the roying course one of the finest in the
south. For years racing events were pulled
og on the course and Pensaola boasted
at that time of having the crack double of
the South. Later. however, the interest in
the sport waned, but the Y. M. C. A.,
which has a large membership in the city,
proposes to awaken interest in aquatic
sports and make of the club the same pop-
ular resort that it formerly was. The
house isa large two-story one, well fitted
out, while the shells and racing boats are
among the finest in the south, many of
them having been built to order.

BROWARD-DOUGHERTY DEBATE ON
DRAINAGE AT DEFUNIAK.
DeFuniak Springs, Nov. l.--ov. N. B.
Broward and Hon. Charles Dougherty of
\olusia county locked horns here today
in the tabernacle of the Chautauqua as-
sociation over the question of Everglades
drainage, and, while the governor made
but few new points in the discussion of
this great question, Mr. Dougherty scored
several times, principally because of the
fact that he is thoroughly acquainted with
the business of sugar raising and is also
familiar wit hthe disastrous results of the
drainage work carried on several years
ago by Hamilton Disston, previous to the
removal of the immense sugar plant that
was erected on the reclaimed land from
this State to Cuba for the reason that the
land that had been reclaimed was practi-
cally worthless for the usese for which it
The crowd that greeted the governor as
he entered the tabernacle could not be
called an enthusiastic one by any method
of calculation, and not a sound was heard
as he stepped upon the rostrum. When he
got under way, however, the crowd warmed
up a little, and with the aid of his maps
and his usual line of talk about the rights
of the people and what he was endeavor-
ing to do for them, he managed to get up
a little applause at times.
The welcome accorded Mr. Dougherty
was, as might have been expected in this
section of the State, anything but warm,
but he was generously applauded when lie
managed to score against the argument
advanced by the governor.
The debate was opened by the governor,
who consumed an hour in telling the people
assembled that the scheme to drain the
Everglades of Florida wasthe easiest big
job in all the world, reading extracts from
several of his books and other volumes
alleged to cite the law in the matter, and
contending at considerable length against
the assertion of those opposed to him in
effect that the power vested in the trustees
under the proposed amendment to the
btate constitution was not as great as rep-
resented and was, in fact, a necessity if
the work was to be carried on as provided
in the original grant of the swamp and
overflowed lands to the State of Florida
and by the laws of the State. He ap-
pealed to the people to force the owners
of the lands in controversy to pay their
proportion of the cost of drainage and
pictured in glowing terms the great bene-
fits that would accrue to all concerned.
He stated emphatically that the rail-
roads would never get the lands which
have been granted to them by the State,
and, incidentally, sprung a new proposi-
tion by asserting that it was not the in-
tention of the State t drain any lakes,
ponds or lagoons, but only the high land
south of the Everglades.
His whole address was practically along
the lines of previous efforts, with which
probably every man in the State who is
able 'to read is familiar. The governor, as
is h:s custom, paid his respects to the
Times-Union, and in connection therewith
intimated that he might ask other politi-
cal favors of the people of the State. In
this connection he said: "If I ever want
anything else in this State in a political
way I will not sneak up to it. I will not
as kthe Times-Union for it. I will ask the
people of Florida for it."
Hon. Charles Dougherty made an able
address in opposition to the contentions of
the governor. He opened his remarks by
stating that lie had been a resident of the
State ever since he was twenty years of
age, and also explained in detail his con-
nection with the sugar industry and his
knowledge of the Everglades drainage
He said he had voted for Gov. Broward,
but in view of the misleading statements
that had been made by the governor dur-
ing his campaign in favor of the passage
of the drainage amendment he was ex-
tremely sorry that he had done so.
He i as inspired to oppose the measure,
lie said, not because of any love for corpo-
rate interests, but because he believed the
amendment would impose a burden upon
the people of the State and because the
question of title to the lands was still in
litigation, and until the question of owner-
ship was settled it would be extremely un-
wise to make any move in the matter.
The charge which the governor has re-
peatedly made to the effect that the corpo-
rate interests are trying to muddy the
water by misrepresenting facts in the
case he branded as the extreme of folly
and openly accused the governor of doing
more to fool the people and prevent a fair
understanding of the question than has
been done by any one else in connection
Mr. Dougherty began at the beginning
and argued against the governor step by
step, his effort tending to show that the
governor had misinterpreted the law rela-
tive to the overflowed lands of the State.
He also warned the people against giving
practically unlimited power to five men
who, if the amendment was approved by
the voters of the State, would have almost
"The infernal improvement fund," he
said, would be a proper name for the board
under the proposed amendment, if not at
present. The results of saw grass land
drainage, Mr. Dougherty said, had been
disastrous and, in support of his statement,
he cited the case of Hamilton Diston,
who sunk half a million dollars in an
effort to reclaim and utilize such lands,
and after doing so, found that they were
utterly unfit for the production of sugar,
the raising of which has been so repeatedly
cited by Gov. Broward as one of the main
reasons why the glades should be drained.
Mr. Dougherty said he was a sugar raiser
and had raised more tons of it during his
residence in the State than any other man.
le raised his cane in the ground, however.
and not on paper as in the case of the
governor. The sugar raised on reclaimed
muck lands was of little, if any, commercial
value, said Mr. Dougherty, for the reason
that it would not granulate.
In answer to a question propounded by
a gentleman in the audience, Mr. Dougher-
ty stated that the people residing in the
drainage district did not want the lands
drained, and in support of the statement
lie read a petition signed by every office-
holder in Osceola county protesting against
the scheme of the governor.
Mr. l)ougherty was even willing to ad-
mit, for the sake of argument, that the
drainaig :.f the Everglades would be a
g':od thlng for the State of Florida. He
said he was willing to admit almost any-
thing for the sake of argument, but he
was absolutely convinced that any one who
l;elieved the Everglades would prove an
El Dorado after reclamation would be
t,advl mistaken. Muck lands, said Mr.
Dlougherty, have been drained in the past
and while they have been prolific for a
year or two, were easily worked out, and
when their fertility had been exhausted,
they' were about the poorest land on the
face of the globe, and required more fer-

14 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
Everything Indicates the Defeat of the Drainage
As the Record goes to press this week,
we have before us reports from reliable
sources from all parts of the State which
indicate strongly that the constitutional
amendment providing for drainage and the
appointment of a board of drainage com-
missioners is to be defeated.
Our reports come from those who have
been watching the fight since its inception.
In South Florida there is not the slightest
doubt of an overwhelming majority against
this proposed iniquitous constitutional law.
In that part of the State where the people
are familiar with the question the oppo-
eition is practically unanimous among
those who have a disposition to be fair.
IT MOVES WHEN YOU DO.
Those who are supporting the amendment
are political friends of Governor Broward,
who have profited by his election to the
chief executive office of his State. But
those who are in a position to be fair and
who have the interests of their State at
heart are against the amendment almost
to a man.
In West Florida, where the Governor
was supposed to have secured a great hold
on the voters for this amendment, the
latest reports indicate that he is to lose
out in all of the counties in that part of
the State. In Marion, Alachua, Levy, Co-
lumbia, Suwannee and Taylor, their is more
doubt as to the result with every indica,
tion that the amendment is to be lost.

Another remarkable statement Gov.
Broward makes is, that muck lands will
not burn up when drained, and says: "If
such a thing as a large area of land catch-
ing fire and burning up as the opponents
claim had been possible, the great bogs
of Ireland would have been ash heaps long
before St. Patrick drove out the snakes."
The governor evidently knows as much
about Ireland as he does about the Ever-
glades. Had he ever traveled in Ireland,
he would have discovered that the greater
part of the fuel of the peasantry consists
of the dried peat taken from these same
bogs, and that the peculiar flavor of Irish
whiskey is derived from being made in
pot stills over peat fires. The Logs are not
drained, but are kept for purposes of fuel.
Were they drained, they would burn just

DAMAGE WAS LARGE.
Monday Might's Fire Was One of the Most
Disastrous in Several Years.
The Bay street fire of Monday night,
when the J. D. Horn Company's store was
so badly damaged, probably the most de-
structive fire since the conflagration of
May, 1901, when almost the entire city
was wiped out by fire.
Mr. Horn of the J. D. Horn Company
stated yesterday that as near as he could
figure his loss would be between $5,000
and $66,000, which, fortunately, is fully
covered by inusrance. The damage to the
building, which is owned by J. C. L'Engle,
will amount to about $10,000, which loss
is also covered by insurance.
Neither Mr. Horn or any of his employes
has any idea as to how the fire originated.

on with a will. The special agent in Japan

ger is doing more than any other plan that
has yet been put in operation.
