application to the court to have the houd
estrestment proceedings in the case of. J.
M, Fryer, the High Springs blisnI tiger
runner who had twice forfeited his bond,
set aside. Mr. Broome said that Fryer's
bondsmen would pay all costs of- delay,
etc., and that Fryer would come in for
trial. Judge Wills, who is certainly show-
ing himself to be the right man in the
right place, informed the attorneys for
Fryer's bondsmen-Thrasher and Broome
that they would have to show better
cause for batting aside estreatment pro-
ceedinags than the mere fact that the
bringoig of Fryer to court would cost the
couitar nothing. He said Mr. Anderson,
bond should not have ignored pro-
ces of thd ctart in the matter; he should
have prodased the body of Pryer in court

HOLLOWAY AND


SHEATS ABAIN


State


Papers Go for Sheats a'od
Praise Holloway.


A FVW OF -THE EXTRACTS;


Herald, Times-ilerald, Citizen-
Reporter and Advertiser
for lolloway,
(cO.NTIrBUTsa J
Tamnpa Tribune: Professor Holloway
will lie the next State Superintendent of.
Public Instruction. .
Palatka Timesi-Herald: Czar. Sheats


claims that he is touring .the State in,
spectiig the schools, but in reality he is
merely looking after his old political fen-
ces.
DeFuniak Herald: Who ever heard of
Sheats inspecting the schools except dur-.
ing a campaign?
Palatka Times-.Heraid: It will take
something more th u t'te imudalinging of
the Czar Sheats' crowd to dim the lustre of
the record, of Prof. Holloway; the peo-
ple'a.candidate for State school sutierin-.
tendent. "
AIske, .City (itizen--Reporter: Hon
Winm. M. Holloway of Gainesvllle, candi
date for State Superintendent of Public
Instruction, was an appreciated visitor at
our office last Saturday. Mr Hollowav
is a thoroughly competent snan--a pleas-
ant, affable gentleman, and is making a
number of friends in this vicinity. Since
1893' he has been superintendent of
schools in Alachua county, the duties of
which office he has honorably discharged.
His re-election to the office twice in suc-
cession, without opposition, is evidence
of the esteem and confidence in which
he is held by by the people of Alachua
county.
PalaLka Times-llerald: During the
continued absence of Czar Sheats from
Tallahassee, the office boy, perhaps,
looks after the school interests of the
State.
W. u. HOLI.OWAV.
Live Oak Democrat: W. M. Hollo-
way, of Gainesville, candidate for State
Superintendent of Public Instructiou,
was in our city Tuesday, meeting the
people. Mr. Holloway is one of the lead
ing educators of the State, qualified in
every way to fill the position to which he
aspires, and if all signs don't fall he will
be the yext State Superintendent.


LKur MR SHiATs RTIrrau.
I;lUnies Coumly Advertiser: The Ad-
vertiser feels that Mr. Sheets is entitled
to much credit for the work he has per-
forated for Florida in the Interests of
education, and we would not detract one
iota from his deserved credit. But, be-
cause Mr Sheats has merely done what it
was his duty to do, to wit: give Isis very
best efforts for the elevation of the stand-
ard of education in the State, does that
bring the State under obligations to con-
tinue him in office ad iufinltum? No, in-
deed. There are others. And among
the tried teted educators of Florda,
none stand higher, if indeed as high, as
P'rof. W. M. Holloway. of Galnesville,
Fli., Superienendent Public nstructio
of Alachua county, also who is the oppo-
nent of Mr. Sheata for State Superin-
tendent.
The fact is, Mr. Shesta has undoubt-
edly reached the list of his influence,
if not his abIlity, and should retire. The
superior ability manifested by Prof. Ilol-
loway as a promoter of educational inter-
ests mark him as the man who should
step out into a wider field, and apply him
genius for educatlonsl work to the'fur-
ther promotion of State Interests Jl1
educational work.
He only, as compared between the
two, is able to take that work from where
Sheats has carried it, and advance it to
higher planes of usefulness This is
almost self-evident, if not quite so,
therefore needs but little argument to
prove It.
Holloway by all means should receive
the primary vote--and we believe he will.
At any rate we are confident that Holmes
and Walton will give him their support,
for they are quite willing to-allow Sheast
a resting spell.

W. J. BRYAN'S


NOTED SPEECH


J. M.. Barrs Hias Had It Printed
In Piillphlet Forfl.


vRI'I'r BARkS FOR A COPY.


it Will lie Mailed Free to Arty
One Why May Re-
quest It.
To the 1)etiiocratic Voters of the Sec.
ondt Congressional District of Florida:
I aim ihavi-tl pliinted itn pamphlet form
for preservation, copies of thI great speed
delivered by Wniliau Jeitnings Bryan in
this city I elsrsttry 10th1, 1904. I had a
stenographer take it dow), Ai.ld it ls be-
ing. printed, exactly as delivered to tles
largest gathering of- Ietuiocrats -ev t
assembled in Floridna.
It is such a speecli as will give" pleasure
to every'Democrat, and, indeed, to every
person who is opposed to corrtiption hi
politics, to read,. It appeared to mie to b
so very appropriate to present conilitkis
iu: Florida, that .1 decided to print aid
distribute it among the voters of .thi
Cougressiolal District..
Whether or itot one agrees with 'Bryas
iu every detail, all who realize the das
gers to our political system, growing on
of the injection of corruption funds to ai
exteut heretofore unknown, will appre
date his warnialgs and powerfully ex
pressed protests against the corruptlo
which is such a marked feature of tIhl
day.
The attempt of the Trusts andl corrupt
corporations to control even the Desm
ocratic Party it a State supposed to b
so thoroughly democratic as Floridl
through the corruption of every purcha
ble newspaper In the State, regardless o
cost, and the use of an unlimnitedl amous
of money available to secure the service
of every corruptible voter in Florids
makes the disseuailtationt of 'so powerfi
an appeal for honesty and decent politic
peculiarly desirable.
We are having a test in Florida of th
question whether corruption of a large
majority of the newspapers of the Stat
by Trust money, sand the unstinted use o
an unlimited caulpaign corruption funi
among the voters, and the employment
of a horde of hirelings to travel frost
point to point, and go from voter to vote
to mislead and corrupt them, can, In
democratic State like Florida, In a white
democratic primary election, prevail ovea
true democratic principles ansd honest
men and decent netliods, in the face ol
such appeals to the conscience anil nmora
nature of the people as are made bly iry.
an in that speech.
Vor one, I have no doubt that honest
and decent methods and true democracy
will prevail. I have the utmost confi.
dence in the Intelligence, honesty and
democratic principles of the white den-
ocratic voters of Florida. I was born
among them. I have lived amnoilg them
all spy life; and I know them. A people,
taking the maes ans they come, naturally
sore intelligent, more honest or more
faithful to their political convictions
than the native PIortdlanu, I do not be.
llve can be found anywhere on (the face
of the earth; and no other State has
received a class of rim grants of better
character than those who have come from
among the best citizenship of every
other State In the Union and s settled in
Florida. I am sure that no electorate on
earth can be found, before whomar it
would be safer to submit the questions to
the white democratic primary in Florida
May so, 19o4.
. I asm eoafident that the eorruptlig in.
SiuncMs now, aid for M lomng at work In
this Btate are doomed to sueh a defeat
that they will not agai. for many years

OUTLRAGE ON JUSTIC. -
We have aold It many times, and we
here and now repeat, that the .mader in
which bonds have been accepted, for-
felted and never collected lan Alahua
county, it a damnable outrage on Justlce.
This is strong language we admit, butt I
is true, and every jitelligent man in the
county knows it is true.
Why should a criminal be required to
givebond for his appearance at courtto be
tried for an offense against the law, if htis
bondsman ame not to be required to pro-
duce hip or pay th4 amount of the bond?
Why have so much humbuggery? The
number of bond that have been for-
felted in this county during the last ten.
yes, and the extremely few that have
been collected, should bring the blush of
: ha ew to every Alachua countlan's cheek.

MILLIONS ARE IN ASHES.

Disastrous Conflagration Visits Roch.
estir, N. Y., Entailing Frightful
Loses n Business Sectioin.

The worst conflagration in the his-
tory of Rochester,. N. 'Y., broke out
shortly before 5 o'clock Friday morn-
ing In the basement of the Rochester
DIy dods Company's -store in Main
street, east .
The .fire, according to the night
watchman in the store, was discovered
soon after it started, but it spread with
such rapidity that by The time the
alarm was turned in the enu're depart-
ment store was in flames.
The- fire department responded
promptly but within an hour after be-
ing discovered the fire had spread to
the big Granite building occupied by
Sibley, Lindsay & Curr, and by hun-
dreds of business and professional
men.
The flames also spread to the build-
Ings in the rear of the Granite block.
The extreme cold made fire fighting
difficult and hasarddous as the ladders
were coated with lee.
Thq fire Is reported to have started
in the basement of the Rochester Dry
Goods Company. A fuse connected
with the electrical motor that runs the
elevator blew out and the next mo-
ment the flames were rushing up the
elevator walt. Tn a few moments
thereafter the building was wrapped In
flames.
The fire started so early In the morn-
ing that very lew people were on the
street, but by 6 o'clock there were
large crowds around the blaslpg build-
ing.
Dynamite was used to check the
spread of the flames and was followed
by the thunderous falling of walls.
Thsla plan was soon abandoned.
The building occupied by the Roch-.
ester Dry Goods Company, Just east ol
the Granite building, was totally de-
stroyed and the walls fell.
The fire spread to the rear of the
Granite building on Division street.
The Cox building, which fronts St.
Paul street, on the corner of Division
street, was soon doomed,
Insurance men estimate the loss at
from $4,000,000 to o,000,0'00.


neasse new postofice building at Chi-
cago collapsed Friday afternoon carry-
ing fifteen men to the first floor of the
buUdJng killing them all. .The Afteen
helpless victims' made a sheer descent
of 260 feet through space.
The men were at work on the scat-
fold finishing up the decorations on the
Interior of theo dome. Tnere is a space
beneath extending to tie first floor and
it wa 'down this hole through a& tha
looks that tons of splintered w*ood tot-
lowed the 'men In their. terrible do-
scenit and literally burled them.'' No
cries or moais ot pain were heard. .
Walter Anderson, who was on tho
floor w7tt the scaffolding, bad a halr-.
breadth escape. Hasaid:
"twas helping a little ..with the
work, when I heard a sound like tear-
ing or rending of wood: The thought
struck me rfat at'" scaffold wouu. colt
lapse and I jumped irom the platform
-to a window on the side of the dfmne.
I had scarcely done so, when the thing
collipaod and carried all of the men
onto the frast floor.- It was sickening
to realize what little chance the men
had for their lives."'
The platform was constructed large-
ly of two by four timbers, In somd
places naIled together lengthwise and
were constructed under charge of Len-
nox-Haldeman Company, sub-contract-
ors 'for the John Pierce company, who
have charge of the interior decora-
tions. .
About 100 plasterers and laborers
were at work in and about the dome
when the accident occurred. The scat-
folding which fell was one of the larg-
est op its kind ever constructed I
Chicago, and is said to have contained
100,000 square feet of lumber.
-James Smith, a foreman in charge
of a plastering gang in the dome, and
Edgar Smith, in charge of an iron
workers' gang, were working beneath
the main platform on a similar struct-
ure., They were warned by the crack-
ing of tie timber as it gave way and
.were able to escape by climbing onto
windows.

TALE OF "BLEEDING COLORADO"
Told Before House Committee by
President of Citizens' Allian6e.
A Washington special says: "Colo-
rado can literally be -called 'Bleeding
Colorado,' owing to what has taken
place there In the ast ten yearp" said
J. 0. Cralg, president of the Citizensr
Allance of Denver, in an address Fri-
day before the house judiciary com-
mittee In opposition to the conspiracy
bill.
He recounted the various clashes
between the unions and the mine op-.
erators. Unioh men, he said, had roll-
ed kegs of dynamite Into shaft houses,
where *men were working, and arrang-
ed them to explode, and many such
plots caused deaths among non-union
mine workers.
The Citizens' Alliance was forced to
take action against such assaults, and
the association grew to a mefnbership
of 14,000.

UNION LABEL RULED OFF.
Election Commissioners Hold It as
Improper Mark on Ballots.
Under a decision of the board of
election commissioners of Cook coun-
ty, at Chicago, primary election ballots
marked with the union label or any
other device will hereafter, if cast, be
treated as void and not counted.
Attorney Wheelock, of the board,

to whether the Alsied Prinfting Trades
Council or any similar device of label

opinion was absolutely against the ia-
beT and this was adopted by the board.

BELIEVE JAPS SUCCEEDED.
Naval experts in London are of the
opinion that the Japanese fleet has
succeeded In bottling the Russian
squadron in Port Arthur and that tha
latter's effectiveness as a fighting ins
chine .sl gone. -
The experts base their opinion no
the fact that the stone-laden barges
sent in by the Japanese were sunk by
the Russian fire at or near the mouth
of the harbor and must prove an in-
surmountable obstruction to the egress
of such ships as make up The Port Ar-
thur squadron.
If the Japan6se have really succeed-
ed In their design of blocking the har-
bor entrance, the fall of PortA rlthur
must follow before a great while.
In all quarters tMere is estFavagant

Japanese carried out their plan.

ceived an ofcial dispatch saying that

the ni nmiclh good, and the next inay
they felt better. As Enimn was not
ablo to do her work, Nelly and Grace
were glad of the chance to earn some-
thing by staying and keeping house
for their friends.
When the water went down, so Ned
cold Inspect the house, he paid them
a good price for It. and they began to

When Einnin's health was fully re-

ter for them to leave,
"You will not need ums now. I think
we will try to rent a house In W--,

Emma was starlfled at this sudden
nnnounmceinent. She had not thought
of their leavIng.
"Why do you want to go? Why not
make this your houtie? We would be
glad to hav'e you do so."
"I do not think It woeld hl best for

pleasant for ins here."
"Then why do you wlsh to go? We

you persuade them to stny?"

Ned found 'elly alone In the dinlng
