8. S. Marsh Talks of the Con-
gressional Candidates.'


This Well Known M riter De-
clares That Alexander Has
Only Barrs to Beat.
Starke S. Marsh, of Manatke, lho is
one of the shrewdest and most successful
young law ers in Soith I loriala, thi a
discusses the Congressioial race in the
Second District of Florlidla:
M anitee, Fla., (tct. i-. 19.3.
To the Editor of ThIe Metropolis:
In reading the many State papers which
are howling so much about cainlidates
and their fitness for the offices they as-
pire to, and especially the candidates who
have announced themselves itn the Sec-
ond District, it reads really funny to a
man who has once lived In the district
atd fe thoroughly acquainted with all the
. candidates and their real fit lines aind right
to said office.
Of course, there is no law to prohibit
any one running for public office, and at
is a very good law, but it does look like
there ought to be some law to prohibit
some poor fools front intposing on the
people by forcing themselves oil the peo-
ple and asking Y them to support them for
public office when they fa. l i every par-
ticular to nuerit the <|uralific;,tions of the
Let's compare the candidates and see
what they are and where they have lived
anud who have the interest of the peo[.le
at heart, instead of financial gain.
There are now the Ilon. J. E. Alexiin-
der, Hon. J. M Blarr;, C harles Dough-
erty, Frank Clark, R D McDonnald,
Charles Fildes aul .A. 0. Wright, who
have announced theimse've., for this hon-
ored position to repre-lent the people of
the Second District In Congress.
Now, out of the seven a in it lia e lniost
suited' and which one is tl e oast ihe-
serving ntan? To suina the matter tup it
a nutshell and to say who % 1ill k now El.at
they were really running it will be le-
tweent the Hon. J. E. alexanderr of DIe-
Land, and the Honl J. M. Dirrs, of Jack-
sonville, but as to which olie will get it
1 know not, but I do kilow that lor
ability, and faithfulhess to the party nnd
to the people of the Secondl DiArn-lt tihit
they are the ones who sliould be hI monred
by the popular vote, andl I can't liut help
believe that one or the other of these no.
ble sons will be rewarded. Of course,
aa to my preference I msinit frairnkly ay
that I would if there vote for .il work,
both teeth and toe nails, for Mr. J. E.
Alexander, knowing him as I Ilo for nior.
than twenty years, or ever sincee I clin
remember, I could not do otherwise. Al.
exander was born a Southern boy in the
great State of Tennessee Afterwards he
graduated at the Lebanon Law School
with high honors le then cast his lot
in the fair Land of Flowers, where lie has
continuously inade his honre for over
twenty years, at times holding some high,
honored position and never betraying a
trust. He is a man gifted with nunier-
ous abilities, and if elected he would
serve his constituents faithfully and hion-
It has oftpn been said that James E.
lexander possesses one of the largest
b earf of any man in the houth. He never
foysabes a friend in trouble arnd always
uqows everybody and offers them tis
hand, it matters not whether they are
rich or poor or whether he is a candidate
or not.
Mr. Barns is a good man and has done
much for the party and Is a deserving
man, but as to Charles Dougherty andl
Frank Clark, they may be good enough
"men, but they are not loyal enough to
our State to be honored to such a posi-
tion. They only ride here when they
think there is a chance of holding some
fftlce, It seems to be a well known fact
lgat both of them deserted our fair State
for other quarters long ago, but have re-
cently meandered back to bite at the po-
litlcal plin. Ad d as to Messrs. I'ildes,
MeDowald and Wright, nobody will ever
know that they are in the race.

I believe it being loyal to tha man
who is loyal to his State and party all the
time, not only when he thinks there is
4 chance for him to fool the people into
electing hint to office. I yet feel a great
Interest in my home county and my fel-

No man can ever regret his vote if

Accidental Killing.
At the Kelley-McDonald saw mill near
Windsor, last Friday morning, Jake
Msoubley, colored, lost his life by being
crushed by a log from the log train.
Bystanders who saw the man killed
say it was the result of carelesaness on
the part of the unfortunate victim, as he
couli easily have kept out of the way of
the log, but notwithstanding this fact,
and that no blame attaches to the em-
ployers, Measrs. Kelley and McDonald
deeply regret the occurrence.

Walls Fell
A portion of the walls of the Crawford
& Davis stables, which were destroyed
by fire last week, but which did not all
fall .dating the fire, fell Spturday soon
after noon, during a consilerable wind,

How Jury Reached Verdict.
Soon after the Jury retired a ballot
was taken, the result being ten to two
for acquittal. After some delibera-
tion one of the two went over to the
side of the acquittal, but It was not
until 20 minutes before the Jury sent
word to the court Thqrsday morning
that an agreement had been reached
that the twelfth man yielded.
Very few of the Jurors got any sleep
during the night. The long delay
caused apprehension that a mistrial
would result The jury could not have
stayed out beyond Saturday midnight.
The-count In the Indictment charging

not considered.

where he went in the interest of the
Col. Guilliams reports a success-
ful trip, and feels elated over the
schools' prospects for the .future.
While absent he was in Orlando,
and talked with the businpas men
there, and they are almost a unit
in favor of voting out the saloons
again. The county was once dry
and. the people allowed the saloons
to return, And they admit that the
return of the saloons has brought
no good, but an increase in crime,
-Gainesville Star,
Just so. It could not be other-
wise. The saloon creates no busi-
ness for any legitimate branch of
trade. Money spent for liquor can-
not be spent for food and raiment
and books and newspapers and the
comforts of life. The saloon makes
business only for the criminal courts
the penitentiary and the hangmen.
The business men of Orlando knew
this before hand and it was not by
their votes that the saloon was
again fastened upon Orange counn
ty's (air capital to gnaw at its vi-
tals. But it was by the negro
vote, the vote of the foreign ele-
ment and of the riff-raff of the
town. And many, if not the most
of these votes, were paid for by
saloon .money.-Orange -County
