The bleTniasl report of Mr. Sheats pre-
senta the following interesting facts:
". The valuation of the entire property of
the State in 19go was $97.51i,192,
Alachbua's vahiation was $3.874,489,
which gives Alachua about 4 per cent of
the assessments of the entire State. Yet
during this time she has nuaiutalied 5
per cent o' all of the schools, owns 5 per
cent fl her chol buildings, so per cent
of the trnittire, 9 per cent of the pateut

:new State Committee, and liberty,
the Primary System, would be effec-
tually destroyed, and the Democratcl
-massoes would be too dasheartoned to
soon start anew the battle for. their
freedom from the corrupting influ,
fences which tlid overcome them.
Whitn they werb defeated, in. the
effort to .delay thhe Primary, :and the
date had been fixed for: May 10th,
they sought to, have a Convention
called for June 17th, hoping after -the
adoption of a resolution calling a Con-
vention, to -reconsider the call for a-
Primary May 10th on the pretext
that the people needed more time- to
study the candidates anid a ihould-
have- a lew platform before t e -can-
didateii were selected. They then- la.
tended to capture the Convention. and
have no Primary, but nominate alli
candidates for all offices.
That this wad intended to be done
is evident from the peduliar wording
of the resolution intiroduded into the
State :Committee. provided for. the
calling ..of a State Convdntlonp. The
resolution was as follow
"Resolved. That a Convention of
the Democratic Party of the State of
Florida be called to assemble in Jadk-
sonvllle on June 17thi 1904, at noon,
for the purpose of nominaing dele-
gatos to the National Con mention of
the Democratic Party, which ineeta
in St. Louis July 6,. 1904, and to take
such action as may be regarded
proper, and that each county be en-
titled to representation on the basis
of one representative for each hun,
dred Democratle votes cast at the
last General Election, such represen-
tatives or delegate. to be chosen at
the Primary lClection to be held June
10, 1900, under the direction of the
County Democratin Executive Com-
mittlee of each Counnty."
Note the alleged purpose for which
the Convenuon was to be called, via:
"for the purpose of nominating dele-
gate, to the National Conventlon of
the Democratic Party, which meete
la St. L.oul July G. 1901, and te take
such action as may be re gandd
proper." Note also. specially. the
use of the words "and to take swel
action as may be regarded proper."

Daniel J. Bully, the cotton operators
*"'#ho' has for fifteen months been the
biggest figure in the cotton markets
of the world, and who has "bulledl"
cotton from 7 cents a pound to over
17, announced his inability to make

mentas cotton fell nearly $13 a bale
from the highest figures of the day.
Scenes such as followed the an-
nouncement of the failure IL has been
the privilege of few brokers to wit-

have witnessed stock panics in pre-
vious years; .corners have been bro-
ken, .and many crashes have been re-

General Instructions to the, mem-
bers of the commission were contain-
ed In a letter from President Roose-
velt to the commission under date of
March 8. Thb letter, which was read"
at the- meeting, says -that the corn
mission has been appointed to "un-
derthke the most Important and also
the moeet formidable engineering feat
that has hitherto been attempted."
It is said the commission has been
chosen purely -because of "personal
and professional r6putatlond for integ-
rity and ability;" that It represents
neither section nor party and as to
the majority the president has not the
slightest idea what their political af-
filiations are.
The letter says the president will
not hesitate to remove any member
falling to give the best service It Is
possible to procure. The letter con-
"I assume as a matter of course
that In dealing with contractors you
will act on precisely the principles
which would apply in any great pri-

vato business undertaking,
"As to the details of the work It-
self, I have but little to say. It Is to
be doie as expedltlously as possible,
and as economically as is consistent
with thoroughness. There is one mat-
ter to which I wish to call your spe-
cial attention, the question of salnta-
tion and hygiene. You will take
measures to secure the best medical
experts for. this purpose whom you
can obtain, and. you will. of course,
make the contractors submit asn Im-
pliotlyas your own employees to all
the rules and regulations of the medl-
cal 4epartpefat under you. -
"The penallture's are to be super-
vised ad rigolfousil as It they were be-
ing made for a private corporation,
dependent for. Its profits upon the re-
turns. You are to secure the best
talent this country can afford to meet
the conditions created by every need
which may aise; The methods for
achieving the results must be yours.
What this nation will Insist upon is
that the results bo achieved.

A Washington .special says: .The
house commit tee on Judiciary Monday
voted to impeach Charles Swayne, fed-
eral judge for the distr.'ct of Florida.
The committee reached this conclusion
at a session lasting from 2 UAntil
o'clock. The vote and the details of
the charges which will form the
ground of impeachment, the commit-

of the case has been completed for
presentation to thu house. This report
ls to be drawn by Representative Pal-
mer, of Pennsylvania, chairman of the
sub-committee which took the testi-
mony In the 'case. Of this subcom-
mittee Messrs. Palmer and Clayton, of
Alabama, reported to the full commit-
tee In favor of Impeachment, while
Representative Gillett, of Callfornia,
reported against it.
Mr. Palmer's report will be propar-
ed at once. If the. house votes to
impeacph Judge 8wayne, two of its
members will be appointed formally
to notify the senate, before which
body, sitting In a Judicial capacity, the
case must .be tried.

would be conducted by six manager&,
who would be members of the house,

has been presented to the senate by
theai managers, will be given an op-
portunity to present his side of the

give out no details of the case at

on whtch testimony was taken include
those of being absent from his circuit,

The last Impeachment proceedings
were those of Andrew Johnson. Only
three federal Judges have been im-
peached. These were Judge Pickering,
of New Hampshire, who was impeach-
ed for giving up the bark liza to her
owner without taking proper bond af-
ter tbe bark had been seized for smug-
gling, being drunk and using profane
language on the bench.
Judge Chase, of Pennsylvania, was
Impeached for refusing to allow a law-
yer to address the court or the jury
on a question of law which he already
had decided.
Judge Peck, of Missouri, who was
the last judge Impeached, was charged
with Improperly striking the name of
a lawyer from a roll of attorneys for
contempt. James Buchanan was one
of the managers on the part of the
house in this trial.
The proceedings against Judge
Swayne, If carried to the senate, un-
doubtedly will delay for several weeks
the adjournment of the present ses-
sion of congress. If the senate decides
against Judge Swayne, the penalty at-
tached to the decision is the loss ,f
his judgeship.
Judge Swayne was appointed frdtm
Delaware by President Harrison In
1890. His politics are republlcf.n.

That this was to be the Anan outcome
of th fight was made certain by the
favorable report of. the committee,
reached after careful consideration of
the testJmony of the witnees sum.
monad by those who have opposed
General Wood's confiamatlon The
whole Influence of 'the administration
was bacK of him; and while individ-,
uai republican senators have said they
would not have voted for confirmation
had they not previously pledged them-
selves to do so, there has never bee:
any real doubt of the result. The vote
was 46 to 16.
The late Senator Hanna was recog.
nized as the leader of. the forces op-
posed to General Wood, and had it
not been for his death before the
disposition of the case, It Is doncedeo
that the vote would have been much
closer. It has not been believed at
any time since the contest opened.
however, that the fight against con-
firmation would have been successful.
Only two republicans remained in the
minority. They were Senator Scolt.
of West Virginia. a member of the
military affairs committee, who op-
posed the nomination while It was
pending In the committee, and Sena-
tor Kittrldge. of South Dakota.
Five democratic senators voted with
the majority in favor of confirmation.
They were Senator Cockrell and Sena-
tor Peitun. who. as members of the
.military affairs committee, heard all
the testimony against General Wood,
and Senator Patterson, Senator Clarke,
of Arkansas, and Senator Dubo!s. The
negative vote on the confirmation was
as follows:
Bacon. Barry. Blablkburn, Clark, of
Montana; Culborson, Olbson, Latimer,
McCreary, McLAurla, Mallory, Martin,
Money, Nowlands. Simmons. all dem-
ocrts. and KIttrldge and Scott. repub-
After a vote had been reached, Ben-
ator Foralser moved to make the vota
public, and Senator Blackburn moved
to make public the testimony bad be-
fore the committee on military affairs.
The motion In regard to the testimony
was voted down, and the general un-
derstanding was that the vote was to
be given out. In the confusion, how-
ever, the announcement was made that
kloth motions were lost. No speeches
were made
Dependent upon the confirmallon of
General Wood were 167 promotions
for other army officers. These have
been hold up since their nominations
were made by the president, but will
now be confirmed without opposition
They Include twenty colonels promot-
ed to be brigadier generals on the re-
tired list and one brigadier general gn

officers ranking from colonels down to

be speedily conlrraied,, and will, accord-
Ing to military authority, take rank

Various Calculations Made as to Etx-
pense that Will be Entailed
When Every Beneficiary Has '
Been Enrolled.

The "service pension"' order recent-
ly Issued by Pens:on Commissioner
Ware, at the behest of President
Roosevelt, Is being made the basis of
a broadside from the democratic
In a communication sent the senate
In response to a request that he esti-
mate the amount of Increase which a
service pension of $12 per month
will call for, Mr. Ware said:
Thus 87,984 pensioners would re-
celvo an Increase of $72 per year, o0
a total uf $6i334,848; 111,21.3 would
receive an Increase of $48 per year, or
a total of $t6.777,7441, and 53,744 would
receive an Incre;iso of $24 per yeir,
or a total of $1,280,850.
In addition to the above, the bill
would give title to about 90.000 sur-
vivors of the civ!l war, who are now
pensioned under the general law at
rates les than $12 per month. The
average pension now paid them is
about $7.80 per month. They would,
thoroforo, hb entitled to receive an
increase of $2.40 per month, or about
$50 'per year, a total of 85.500,000.
Another ays there clas that would take un-
der the provIs'ons of the bill Is the
"unknown army" of civil war survive
ors. Their number on July 1. 1901,
will not be less than 175,000, and none
of them has' as yet been pensioned
How many of these survivors would
apply under the provisions of the b,"?
cannot be determined in advance of
Its passage, but If 150.000 should ap-
ply, the amount required to pay them
at the rate of $144 each would be $21,-
600,000 a year.
The grand tolal of beneficiaries tin-
der this b'l1 would be river 500.000.
and the amount required to pay them
at the rate specified would exceed
$40,000,000 per year over and above
the present appropriation.

Russia auspeats and Chiirges that MIk-
ado's Warships are BeDng SorMUy
Coaled on China Coast.

A St. PeterabtUrg special says: The
government's private Information is
not completely reassuring as regards
China's sincerity in observing a new-
tral attitude. Secret advices indicate
that at least a powerful party in the
Chinese government is abetting the
Japanese. Although at first reluctant
to credit these reports, the Russian
authorities continue to receive evi-
dence that the 'Japanose contemplate
landing on Chinese neutral territory
west of the Lino river and 17,001) men
are being held especially to await de-
velopments in that direction.
Moreover the emperor's naval ex-
perts who have been studying care-
fully the puzzle as to where Vice Ad-
miral Togo's fleet is coaling and pro
visioning between Its appearance off
Port Arthur, are becoming more and
more convinced that it is using as a
base some quiet spot on the Chinese
coast. After each dis-,ppearance not
a word is heard of the fleet'. where-
abouts until it reappears. A ( ticula,
tion of time and dislances show it Is
quite Impossible for the fleet to steam
to Nagasaki or 1Hiroshinma, tak on
board coal and ammunition and come
It is ulso certain the Japanese war--
ships could not take on coal, much
less heavy projectiles at sea In the
face of the pre-.ailing rough weather.
The Idea that they are using Chem.il-
po, Fusan or some other place on the
Korean coast for this purpose is r-e.
Ejected, 'as It is believed that if such
were the case the numerous secret cor-
respondents and secret agents of the
Russians in Korea would certainly
have reported the fact, whereby, by
process of clim'natlion. the Russians
seem compelled to arrive at the con-
clusion that the vessels of the Japan-
ese fleet muat be refilling their bunk-
era in somo Inlet on 1he Chinese
coast ,either on the gulf of Liao Tung
or the Shan Tung peninsula, so far
from ports and inhabited centers that
the correspondents are unable to get
wind of It.
The dwindling number of Japanese
battleships appearing off Port Arthur
Is increasing the conviction thna many
of them have had to put back to Japan
for a thorough refitting.

The most significant uLteranf. -, o
Mr. Patterson were as follows
"The time has come for the ,,ii'h

"I do not think that to nominate a

I am weary of hearing the consalit
and subservient Iteration that the
south is for any man whom tlie nrth

Justice to the south and a reflect on

the northern democracy.
"The question should no longer he,

which he aspires."


Well Known Georgia Journalist and
Orator Succumbs to Grim Reaper.
Hon. F. H. Richardson, who for
years was at different perlors editor
of Tho Atlanta Constitution, Atlanta

Exact Number Unknown.
Commissioner Ware submitted a
list of 870,000 khown surviving sol-
diers of the civil war. of whom 601,.
000 are more than G2 years old. In
another communication he estimated
that of this number 191.000 are not
now on the pension rolls and would
become boneflclaries under the recent
order. Then there is what Mr. Ware
has called an "unknown army" of civil
war survivors, which he ays proba-
bly embrace as many as 175,000. Ot
this number, fully 130,000 must be
more than 62 years of age, which num-
ber, added to the above estimate;
would bring the total of new pension-
ers added by this new order up
to 321,000. This, at the minimum
fr6itre per month, would mean the ad-
dition of $23,000.000 annually, without
taking Into account those persons
now upon ihe pension rolls who
would, according to the present under-
standing of the order, he placed upon
tho rolls at rates in excess or those
now applying to their cases.
The chief reason for the difference
in the various estimates of the num-
ber of beneficiaries under thbs"service
pension" order grows out of the fact
that the exact number of survivors
of the war who are not now on the
pension rolls is not known. Commis-
sioner Ware's figures, stated above,
place this number at 321.000. It
may be larger, or it may be smaller.
