INTERESTING LETTER FROM MR. ZEWADSKI
May Come Back to Ocala-Tells of the Riot and Other In-
teresting Things in Lincoln's Home Town.
Springfield, Ill., June 4, 1909.
To the ilitor Ocala Banner:
Just about two years ago I wrote
you a letter, and thought a the time
that others would follow, so that my
friends could keep up with me, but
=f- i -the time files so fast that these lit-
tie things are overlooked. Things are
Happening up here all the time. I
Shave gone through a presidential elec-
tion, and many of the big fellows that
QUOSInelet*SSS Wnever touch your shoes, come here to
hE i eft ," am H hold meetings, and it makes things
______ 1 lively. I made quite a number of
Eg_._ _U_ speeches for the democratic ticket
and enjoyed the experience very
Much. Many were disappointed that
Gen. Stevenson, the democratic nom-
_M__m__ ....__ inee for governor, wap defeated in this
state, but the head of the ticket nev-
er had any chance of carrying Illi-
nois. Another exacting time we went

He says that owing to the drouth the and five thousand dollars where life
grape crop will not be as abundant
this yeat as usual.
Mr. E. P. Rents spent most oi Aon-
day in Ocala, something he rarely
does, as ordinarily he spends every
moment of his time where his railroad
and big mill are in operation.
Senator and Mrs. I. N. Withers, who
have been at Tallahassee during the
session of the legislature, spent Sun-
day In Ocala, the guests of Mrs. With-
ers' sister, Mrs. Townley Porter. They
returned home Monday afternoon.
Mr. and Mrs. Jake Brown and chil-
dren left Sunday for St. Louis, Mo.,
where they will visit Mrs. Brown's
sister. After their visit at St. Louis
they will visit relatives in Nebraska
and other states, and will be away all
is taken by a mob. therefore the echo
of those days will be heard for some
iime, until they are finally determin-
ed by the courts.
The coming of Billy Sunday to this
city was an event that will long be
remembered by the whole people. He
held a revival here that lasted six or
seven weeks. Originally a profession-
al baseball player, then his conver-
sion in a little old mission in Chica-
go, going into the Y. M. C. A. work,
then holding meetings, and now he
cannot fill one-half the places that
want him. He did a wonderful work
here, and lots of it is going to last.
Think of a choir of 750 people, a huge
tabernacle seating ten thousand peo-
pie, a sawdust floor, and it full of peo-
ple, with an expense of ten thousand
dollars. Think of five thousand con-
versions, and then on the last day
voluntary contributions amounting to
twleve thousand dollars for him-now
you have an idea of what it was.
The Springfield people had the
pleasure of hearing Vardaman of Mis-
sissippi deliver his famous lecture on
the negro question at the Chatterton's
opera house a few months ago, and
the honor of introducing him fell to
me. Just put it down that he knows
his subject, and in the home town of
Lincoln was well received.
The legislature of this state met
last January, and is still with us. It
has been a record-breaker in many
ways, especially on account of the mi-
nority of the dominant party with
the aid of democrats, electing the
speaker, and just the other day, Billy
Lorimer to the U. S. senate, to suc-
ceed Hopkins. I was present on that
occasion. The waters were troubled,
for Hopkins had won in the primary
election. Just what effect it will have
on the old bosses remains to be seen.
It appears that the federal bunch were
all for Hopkins; now they are tremb-
ling for fear that they will have to
walk the plank.
Do you know that with each issue
of the Banner there comes over me a
longing to be back in old Marion.
Having regained my health, feeling
as young as ever, I just long to see
some old acquaintances. I met ex-
Gov. Jennings in the city of Peoria
last fall, and with that exception, 1
have not seen one of my old friends.
Now, do you not think it is time for
me to be coming back? Well, that
event may transpire before many
more months pass, and should I re-
turn, right back to the old Brick City
Sorry that you do not give more

These islands are near Japan, and
they would really be useful and valua-

and if she won't purchase, offer them
to the highest bidder, for cash; and
if no one bids, then put them (meta-
phorically) In a grab-bag and let the
national draw out, and if no one will
draw turn them over to the Sultan
(Satan) of Zulu, and bring our people
back home, and let us go to work to
keep at home and build up our own
great country, with Cuba annexed.
We have spent a whole mint of money
on it and its account already, and
when we get the island we will be
somewhat compensated. It must be
ours sooner or later. It is inevitable.
Then the sooner the better from ev-

Jacksonville has cause to feel proud
of the two young sons of Rev. W. H.
Dodge, who were born and reared
here. They returned here a few days
ago from Davidson College, North
Carolina, which they entered three
years ago. They graduated with high
honors week before last, attaining the
rank of third and fourth men in a class
of fifty-six. They also made splendid
records and stood high with the facul-
ty and students of the college. The
two young gentlemen, Richard and
Witherspoon, will spend the summer
at Ocala with their parents. They will
-then resume their studies in a theo-
logical seminary to further prepare
themselves for the ministry. Their
only sister, Mrs. Mary Maddox, ex-
pects to go as a foreign missionary to
Korea within a year or so. Four of
the sons of Mr. and Mrs. Dodge reside
in Jacksonville. All of their seven
children were born here.-Jackson-
Ensign Robert Allen Burfod, Jr., af-
ter spending three weeks in Ocala
with his parents, left Monday for

ship, the New Jersey. His sister.
Miss Mary Burofrd. accompanied him
to Boston, and will visit in that city
for two weeks. She will be chaper-
oned by her aunt, Mrs. Bashinski. of

IMRS. JOHNSON AND MISS JOHN-
SON ENTERTAIN FOR
Beautiful among the social afairs
was the "shower" which Mrs. T H.
Johnson and her lovely young daugh-
ter, Miss Clara Johnson, gave on Fri-
day afternoon in compliment to Miss
Jessielu Martin, Ocala's pretty June
bride-elect This shower was planned
as a surprise for Miss Martin, and Fri-
day morning Mrs. Johnson telephoned
her to come down and see her about
four-thirty in the afternoon, as she
wished particularly to see her, and
when she arrived at Mrs Perdue's
boarding house, where Mrs. Johnson
resides, she was greeted by the host-
esses and a large number of the
young people who had gathered there
to honor Miss Martin.
Mrs. Johnson, always a graceful wo-
man, was very charming as she greet-
ed the young people Friday afternoon.
A large number of the young lddies
were present, and in their beautiful
toilettes made the scene a most at-

TABLES WERE TURNED
The Local Team Shut Out the Visitors
by a Score of One to Nothing
From Saturday's Daily:
The Orlando and Ocala baseball
teams have played three games during
the past three days, and in each game
one team was shut out without a run.
The visitors won the first game, 1 to
0; also the second game, 3 to 0, and
the home team, to show that it was
not completely outclassed, took the
third contest, 1 to 0.
It would be necessary to go a long
way to see three prettier games. The
feature of yesterday's game was the
pitching of Harris, who let the Orlan-
do boys down with only one hit,
which was made by Barnett in the
fourth inning. Little Limerick again
showed that he is a sprinter. In the
sixth inning he pulled in Waller's
foul fly after a long, hard run to the
The first inning started with Or-
lando at the bat. Limerick smote the
air three times and retired. Tilden
was out on a fly to Dye. Pound pop-
ped up a foul to Waller. The local
stens showed them to the rear of the j team, in an effort to keep the game

have been invited by the United
States Forester to cooperate with the
forest service in an effort to obtain
more definite knowledge of the char-
acteristics of the most important for-
est trees of the United States. To do
this it will be necessary to obtain a
large number of volunteer observers
who will collect material on the time
of leafing, blossoming and fruiting of
the various kinds of forest trees. In
his letter inviting the co-operation of
the teachers. Forester Pinchot says:
"Knowledge of this kind is greatly
needed and will be of value from the
standpoint both of education and of
practical forestry. For educational
purposes the results obtained for
each species, averaged and presented
graphically by means of colored
charts, will be available to all who are
interested in the subject, and partic-
ularly to schools. They will form vir-
tual "tree calendars," and will be val-
uable aids to nature study.
"Children can readily be interested
in the actual work of obtaining rec-
ords. This should form an attractive
outdoor feature of the school work
that should serve to develop the fac-
ulty of accurate observation, and at
the same time to promote an interest
in forestry which may lead to a bet-
ter appreciation of its aims and methr
ods. It may also prove to be a profit-
able addition to botany courses for
"A study of this kind will be of
great value to practical forestry, since
the proper treatment of forests de-
pends partly upon a knowledge of
these characteristics of trees. For
example. the time of year at which a
tree leafs out and blossoms is one of
the indications as to whether or not it
is frost-hardy in a given region, and
the length of time that a tree is in
leaf influences the growth it is able
to make during the season. Knowl-
edge of the time when seeds of each
species ripen in various localities is
of great value to those who are col-i
lecting seed, since seed often deterior-1
ates or is eaten by squirrels and birds
if not gathered and stored as soon as
"Another result of this study will
be a more intimate knowledge of cli-
mate as manifested by plant growth,
for differences in climate are shown
by plant life as well as by instru-
ments. and a preliminary idea can
thus be gained as to whether a given
region is suited to a valuable tree
which it is desired to introduce there.
Many such examples could be given,
but sufficient has been said to show
that the results of these observations
will be a real help to practical forest-
ry, in addition to their general In-
terest and educational value. Volun-
teers will later be supplied with pub-
lications and charts containing the in-
formation they help to gather, as a
return for the services rendered.'
On request, the forest service will
be glad to send forms upon which to
record data and a pamphlet contain-
ing full instructions as to the nature
of the observations, and how they are

REPORTED ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE
A report reached Ocala yesterday
afternoon that Melton Yates. a young
man who has been living at Evinston
and McIntosh for the past three years,
attempted to commit suicide by shoot-
ing himself with a revolver.
He pointed the weapon upward un-
der his chin, and the ball is thought
to have lodged in his brain.
At last accounts the young man wag
under the care of Doctors Burgin and
Price. but was still alive, though his
wound is said to be such a bad one
that it is almost bound to result fa-

The unfortunate young man is said
to have been very successful in his

years, and especially so this season.
and no cause can be assigned for his
attempt upon his life yesterday
We tried last night to get additional
and more definite information about
the affair, but the telephone booth at
McIntosh had evidently been closed,
as no response could be gotten from
several efforts of "central" here.
NO NEED OF SUFFERING FROM
It is a mistake to allow anyone to
suffer from rheumatism, as the pain
can always be relieved, and in most
cases a cure effected by applying
Chamberlain's Liniment. The relief
from pain which it affords is alone
worth many times its cost. It makes
sleep and rest possible. Even in ca-
ses of long standing, this liniment
should be used on account of the re-
lief which it affords. Do not be dis-
couraged until you have given it a
trial. For sale by all druggists. m
OSCEOLA-THE INDIAN CHIEF-
Osceola. "The Rising Sun." was
born about the year 1804 near the
Chattahoochee river in the vicinity of
the present city of Columbus, Ga. A&-
iter his father's death his mother mo?-
ed to Florida when the boy was but
five years old. and took up her abode
near where Ocala now stands. It is
here that Osceola developed into man-
hood. According to the statements of
Cudjoe, interpreter to the American
army during the second Seminole war,
Dr. Harvey W.. Wiley, the govern-
ment food chemist, has found a new
victim for his spear. This time it is
the virulent ice cream. In his paper
on the subject Dr. Wiley says:
"Inasmuch as ice cream Is prescrib-
ed frequently by physicians for inval-
ids and convalescents, and inasmuch
as it is largely eaten by children and
others whose stomachs have not full
vigor, a definite idea f its composi-
tion is necessary to prevent injury
and abuse. Genuine ice cream is an
article of diet that should be consum-
ed in moderation, not only by the sick,
but by the well."
Dr. Wiley has prepared a set of
standards for ice cream makers, and
this is issued by the department of
agriculture. Under the law it is for-
bidden to use eggs. corn flour or
starch, or mucilaginous bodies to
make the ice cream firm. The law
also provides thai ice cream to be
as such must contain 14 per cnt.
o, jutter fat for vanilla flavor and 12
per cent. for fruit flavors, and that all
thickeners, glucose and artificial col-
ors or Ingredients must be eliminated.

We Thank 6od for All [ndowments
(Written for the Ocala Banner)
Father, we thank Thee
For each add every hour,
For earth's rich soil,
The sky's deep blue,
For grass, and the tree and flower.
We thank Thee
For the morning light,
The sun's warm, cheering ray,
The restful shadows of the night.
The labors of the day.
We thank Thee
For the winds that blow,
The air so pure and free,
Refreshing rain and golden grain,
The wealth of land and sea;
The patient, ever-watchful care;
Thy sweet, forgiving grace;
The mighty love, whose wisdom fills
The boundless fields of space.
That holds the rushing, whirling spheres
In rythmic orbits swing;
That tints the petals of the rose;
Speedeth the swallow's wing;
That with fair raiment, soft and warm
Doth cover bird and beast;
All sharing in the bounteous dower,
From the greater to the least.
We thank Thee for the sweetness
Of childhood's trusting smile,
So pure and free from earthly taint,
S', innocent of guile.
Fplling like benediction calm
Across our world-worn way;
Bringing the joy and promise
Of a gladder, happier day.

THE DRESS PARADE
Monday was military day in Ocala.
'Early in the morning the soldiers
,were moving and soon many tents
were conspicuous in the vacant lot
opposite the A. C. L. railway passen-
ger depot. Soldiers in the khaki uni-
tforms were marching to and fro, and
a military hue was given to the as-
pect of affairs.
In the afternoon at five o'clock a
dress parade was given in front of the
Ocala House, which was witnessed by!
eight hundred or a thousand specta-i
tors. The mothers and nurses with
their charges were out in numbers,
and to see the little tots gamboling on
the court house lawn, the soldiers
marching in the streets and the band
playing patriotic airs made Ocala
have a gala appearance, indeed.
There were, perhaps, sixty soldiers
in line and the movements were crit-
ically observed and were everywhere
applauded. Not a mis-step was ob-
Major Nash, Capt. Graham, Lieuten-
ant Dunn and Adjutant Bell looked
well in their regimentals.
The band also was in uniform and
was highly complimented.
The company left Tuesday morning
the state encampment and will be
gone about ten days. The encamp-
ment has been christened "Camp Bry-
an," so, despite the attacks made upon
him the "peerless" still seems to hold
good in Florida.

TWO DISTINGUISHED FLORIDIANS
The June number of the Florida
Historical Society Quarterly contains
interesting sketches of the late Gov-
ernor Francis P. Fleming and Senator
David L. Yulee.
The former appears as an editorial.
The sketch states that the late gov-
ernor was descended of very distin-
guished ancestry, bearing titles for
conspicuous acts of bravery, but lost
both titles and estates for their ad-
herence to the Stuarts. Governor
Fleming's grandfather married a
daughter of Francis Phillip Fatio, a
Swiss immigrant of wealth. Governor
Fleming inherited the military cour-
age of his ancestors and bore a con-
spicuous part in the battles of Peach
Orohiard. Williamsburg, Seven Pines,
Second Manassas, Fredericksburg,
Chancellorsville, Harper's Ferry, the
Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Har-
bor. Petersburg, Seven Days' Fight
around Richmond, Antietam and Get-
tysburg, and in the western army
took part in the battles of Chicamau-
ga, Missionary Ridge, Tunnel Hill, Re-
saca, Cassville, Dalton. New Hope
Church, Kennesaw, Dead Angle,
Peach Tree Creek, Atlanta and Jones-
boro. In 1865, while at home on sick
leave, he commanded a company of
volunteers at the battle of Natural
Bridge. near Tallahassee.
The sketch of Senator Yulee is by
his son, Mr. C. Wyckliffe Yulee, of
Washington, D. C., and is a most in-
teresting article, and will be read
with pleasure at least by the older
residents of Florida.
Mr. Yulee was born on the island
of St. Thomas in 1810. His grand-
father was racially Portugese, a high
official in the Emperor of Morocco's
court, and as such had been given the
rank of prince. Upon the death of
the emperor he had to flee to England,
taking with him his wife, an Englsh
Jewess, and their infant son. The last
named, when he grew up, had to go
into trade, and as his mother had' an
exaggerated idea of the princely title,
insisted upon his dropping it and
adopting the name of Levy, the name
of her father. This he did and retain-
ed it until the day of his death, even
after acquiring a fortune in the lum-
ber business in St. Thomas. He had
his son, however, to adopt the name
Further along in the sketch, Mr.
"Educated at an English university,
his father a Mahometan, and his moth-
er a Jewess, his mind, as was indi-
cated by marginal notes on books,
seemed ever reaching out for some
foundation upon which alike could
stand the most humane, the most ex-
tensive, and the oldest of existing re-
ligions. The precept by which he fi-
nally enunciated this universal relig-
ion was: 'All our actions must be for
the love of God only;' which, while
theoretically most sound, led practi-
cally to a few spasmodic ultra exam-
ples. but far oftener resulted in so-
phistic self-reasoning, through which
he did whatever he wished."
The sketch, though as yet uncom-
pleted, is quite entertaining. Sena-
tor Yulee, with perhaps the excep-
tion of Senator Westcott, his first col-
league in the United States senate.
was easily the greatest man that ever
claimed citizenship in Florida. Had
not the civil war intervened and put
an end to the plans that he matured
and had already put in action, Flor-
ida would early have been one of the
great states of the Union, and the ca-
nal connecting the Gulf of Mexico
with the Pacifis ocean would have
been through Tehauntepec instead of
Panama, and the great bulk of the
trade and travel would have been
Away up in the northwest an edi-
tor who was once a doctor .has un-
earthed the fact that Dr. Crawford W.
Long of Athens, Ga., was the original
discoverer of the value of sulphuric
ether as an anaesthetic, and in proof
it publishes the physician's bill for
services to the first patient he oper-
ated upon. He performed two opera-
tions of extracting fatty tumors, both
eminently successful and painless, and
charged the man four dollars and fif-
ty cents, of which fifty cents was for
the ether and its administration, and
the four dollars covered the two oper-
ations and subsequent treatment. This
was in 1842. If Dr. Long had lived in
Boston or New York he would have
had two assistants and the surgery
would have cost the patient five ban-
BORR AND THE
Some of the silliest stuff that has
ever appeared in the state press is
finding a place in some of the newspa-
pers now, and the following from the
Miami Record is a fair sample of it:
"State papers will probably have
something to say next year to Mr.
Railroad Commissioner Burr, should
he again be a candidate for the posi-
tion he now holds. There was a bill
before the legislature permitting
newspapers to exchange advertising
space for railroad transportation.
Burr, it is sail, appeared before the
legislature and argued against the
passage of the bill, and it is probable
that his influence defeated it. The
newspapers of the state are amply
able take care of themselves and
Burr's attempt to regulate their busi-
ness will be properly resented when
the time comes. There will be no
more pot metal campaigns for Mr.
So, because Mr. Burr does not be-
lieve in the railroad pass system, and
so told the legislative committee when
the matter was up for discussion, the
pass-users are to down him in the pri-
maries, are they?
This will be interesting information
to the great mass of voters, ninety
per cent. of whom have never had the
exquisite pleasure of handling a rail-
road pass, and who never could see
any reason why the other ten per cent.
should be favored with that privilege.
We think it highly probable (nit) that
this ninety per cent. will soak Mr.
Burr because he insists that the rail-
roads shall hereafter require passen-
gers to pay their fares in the same
The truth of the matter is that an
anti-pass bill was before the legisla-
ture. It was all right-a good thing-
for the rest of the public, but a few
newspapers thought they were enti-
tled to a special privilege. and they
wanted to be specially exempted from
the provisions of the bill. Mr. Burr,
no doubt, failed to see why a newspa-
per man was any more entitled to a
railroad pass than anyone else, and
he therefore told the committee that
he was opposed to any change in the
We hold no brief for Mr. Burr.
There may be other men in the state
-and probably are-who are just as
abundantly qualified to serve on the
railroad commission as he. But if
his newspaper enemies think to get
rid of him on the ground that he is
opposed to the class legislation and
class discrimination which would al-
low the railroads to Issue passes to
a certain specified few while the great
bulk of the public are paying their
fare in coin of the realm, they will be
The way to kill off Mr. Burr-If he
is to be killed off-is to attack him at
some vulnerable point and in a more
careful way where the animus is not
so apparent..-Pensacola Journal.
Really, the Journal gives the people
of Florida important information when
it avers that there may be men other
than Mr. Burr qualified to serve on
the railroad commission of this state.
Truly, this is a gracious concession
for the Journa? to make, and after
such men as MeWhirter served on
that commission, too!
Mr. Commissioner Burr has occu-
pied a place on this board for a num-
ber of years. Are there less complaints
now of excessive freight charges and
freight discrimination than there
were before Mr. Burr was discovered?
Does there not continue to be calls
and still further calls for more dras-
tic legislation against the railroads of

And when did barter and trade be-
come a crime?
Since the very dawn of civilization,
in peace and in war, barter and trade
have been recognized as legitimate
and proper until Mr. R. Hudson Burr
occupied a place on the railroad com-
mission of Florida, when he and the
Pensacola Journal discovers in it the
seeds of criminality and corruption.
A farmer grows potatoes; he bar-
ters a bushel of potatoes for six
months' subscription to his county pa-
per. Is it not a fair exchange?
Where is the criminality or corrup-
tion in so simple a transaction? 'the
newspaper having nothing but space
at its disposal exchanges so many
inches of space to Its merchant for a

The psalmist David must have been
speaking of the democratic party of
Florida when he said: "I am fearfully
and wonderfully made.
If the democratic party of Florida
is not "fearfully and wondet ully
made" then we never saw anything
It is a conglomeration of democrats,
socialists, populists, independents and
The only correct picture that could
be drawn of it would be a dish of
boarding house hash.
When the democrats in convention
at Tampa a few years ago, made a
compromise with the populists, they,
like Esau, sold their birth-right for a
mess of pottage-very poor pottage
From that day to this hour the pop-
ulists. socialists, independents and re-
publicans have led the democratic
party around by the nose.
It was this gang that forced the pri-
mary system on the democratic party,
and it is the primary system which
has made the once powerful democrat-
ic party of the state of Florida a by
word, a reproach, and a stench in the
nostrils of Simon-pure democrats in
every quarter of our union.
The effect produced by this primary
system, which is controlled by ,popu-
lists, socialists, independents and re-
publicans, has been to relegate our
statesmen to the shades of private
life and bring to the front a set of
men of mediocre ability, who are
strangers to the first principle of
statesmanship and whose highest con-
ception of official duty is "how much
money is there in it?"
If there was ever a time, if there
will ever be a time, when the demo-
cratic party should be organized on
safe and sane principles, that time is

Nobody knows where we are at,
where we are going to, nor what we
are going to do when we get there.

destroyed our party organization, and
once more stand for principles and
policies which will cement us together

litical procedure.-Jasper News.
PUBLISHERS ENTER PROTEST
The Lancaster County (Pa.) Pub-
lishers' Association at its April meet.-
ing resolved to enter ts formal protest
against the postoffice department of
the government supplying the gener-
al public with envelopes or other
printed matter. The basis of it is in
line with the protests of printers in
general-that it deprives them of a
large amount of work on which they
used to realize a fair profit.
The association deems it no more
reasonable that the government
should supply the people enevolopes
than that it should supply them
clothes, coal or bread at the cost of
production; that it would seem even
more reasonable for the government
to acquire the coal fields, the oil fields,
the railroads, telegraphs and tele-
phones and other public utilities and
give them to the public at cost and
thus prevent the trusts from becom-
ing so powerful.

So much unrtainty prevails a to j With the Inerease of manufactures

"What Is a tewerpt?" In Florida, enormous development of cotton and
that the suggestion of a state demo-
cratic onveation, for the purpose of
deining a platform of principles for
the conduct of the party and its o03-
clal resentatives Isto by no means
a bad one. At the recent session of
the legislature, democracy was but an
empty name and although the two
boases were nominally composed al-
together of democrats, men elected as
democrats, the proceedings of the
session demonstrated that practically
every shade of party belief was repre-
sented among the legislators and that
the varieties of democrats were too
numerous to be successfully cata-
logued. As a mtater of fact, much of
the so-called democracy manifested in
the introduction of bills and In the de-
bates which consumed so much of the
time of the session, was the rankest
populism, socialism and nothingism,
and disgraced the name of democracy
by its presence under the democratic
banner and its authorization by dem-
The leading papers of the state are
taking kindly to the suggestion that
a convention is needed to put the
democratic party of Florida back into
the proper path and to eliminate from
Its ranks the people who have no
right there, but who. under the domi-
nance of that party in this state, find
no other opportunity of obtaining of-
fice or influence politically other than
by pretended allegiance to its princi-
ples and policies. A state convention
would doubtless be enabled to cast
out these unworthy "camp followers"
and to place them in their proper cat-
egory. It could adopt a plain and un-
,mistakable declaration of principles
by the standard of which democratic
faithfulness and fealty could could be
measured and it could also lay down
the law to executive and legislative
officials who, placed in power by dem-
ocratic votes, have frequently depart-
ed from democratic precepts.
Two able editors have expressed
themselves quite recently on this sub-
ject, and the Tribune reprints, with
its hearty concurrence, what they
have to say.
The Pensacola Journal makes the
suggestion in the following words:
"The Journal believes that the dem-
ocrats of Florida should meet in con-
vention and enunciate party princi-
ples. They should also take under
consideration and amend the consti-
tution of the state and make of It an
instrument fit to meet tho require-
ments of a great commonwealth of
the twentieth century. And such a
convention, by the sanity and honesty
of Its enactments, should prove the
greatest of all incentives for voters not
now included In the democratic roe-
trum to enroll themselves and work
enthusiastically for the party of the
And the sentiment Is echoed by the
Tallahassee Morning News as fol-
"The Journal Is right. Chairman
Price couir not do the party in Flor-
Ida greater service than by calling the
state committee together and talking
over the matter. It "s none too early
to arrange for a convention early In
the fall. Candidates will be cropping
out here and there for the legislature
-feeling their way-and they should
know definitely what the party stands
for in the most important matters that
affect the state's welfare. The con.
vention could itself make modifica-
tions of the ticket in next year's pri-
mary as would eliminate a great many
of the objectionable and expensive
features. By all means. Mr. Price, get
your committee together and talk over
the matter."-Tampa Tribune.

iron Interests naturally comes 'the
seeking after foreign trade to aid In
that development by additional de-
mand for the outputs.
For more than a century the expor-
tations of the south have been almost
exclusively composed of raw cotton,
tobacco, rice and lumber. These have
brought wealth to the planters, but
with the utilization of part of each
of these great crops in the factories
and mills of the south, manufactured
and prepared for the direct use of the
ultimate consumer, fa greater profit
can be obtained and hundreds of
thousands of employes can be stead-
ily engaged at well-paying work.
The great vessels that bear to for-
eign lands the raw materials of the
southern fields will increase in num-
ber, for southern production is no-
where near its maximum as yet, and
the world looks to it for its full supply
of cotton and the greater part of the
tobacco used. To these fleets which
carry away the agricultural yields will
be added the tonnage that will be
needed to carry the output of the fur-
naces, mills, factories and shops of

been marked in the discussion of the
The time is at hand for a change of

will soon see the advantage that di-

give them for acquiring foreign trade.

MOVING FOR GOOD SALOON
Can there be a good saloon? Only
if It is shut tight, say the white rib-
bon advocates. The brewers have a
different idea. In national convention
at Atlantic City they listen to pro-
posals to force the saloon out of poli-
tics and- to appeal to the people for a
support that can be withdrawn when-
ever a resort becomes disreputable.
That the brewers nave over the
greater number of saloons absolute
power to dictate as to the way in
which these places shall be run is a
fact well understood. It they do not
own the stands outright they control
them through mortgage agreements.
That the makers of beer are disturbed
by the prohibitionist triumphs of re-
cent years they do not try to conceal.
In previous conventions they have re-
solved to elevate the saloon. They
seem now resolved to act on their own
lines of resolution. Since they are
driven by business motives, unweak-
ened by sentiemnt, something decisive
Beyond question, politics and the
saloon form a mischievous combina-
tion. Through its workings the le-
gend of the drinking place as "the
poor man's club" has been most fre-
quently turned into a watchword as
destructive as it is alluring. Bar-
room annexes as the seat of boss gov-
ernment and the source of campaign
orders 'present perils to democratic

UNJUST TO GENERAL TOOMBS
In the address which Secretary of
War Dickinson delivered at Betty-
burg on Monday last, he spoke of the
Providence who overruled the conflict
of arms when the north and south
were opposing each other in lines of
Among other things, he declared
that In the event of the successful es-
tablishment of the Confederacy one
result would have been the eretclon
of a cordon of forts along the Mason
and Dixon line from the Atlantic sea-
board to the western border of Texas,
and he added that across the barricad-
ed belt the sections would have con-
stantly cast warlike and distrustful
We are not disposed to question the
correctness of this opinion. Judge
Dickinson is a man of southern birth.
He was a wearer of the Confederate
uniform. He Is a lawyer of eminent
attainments. It is of course interest-
ing to know what his views are upon
But the matter which specially con-
cerns us ip the question which the
Springfield Republican raises in dis-
cussing this Gettysburg address:
Here it is: "But would the south
have stopped merely with success in
repelling northern invasion and gain-
ing recognition from the Washington
government as an independent nation?
Did Robert Toombs express only a
thought, or ambition, or hope in his
own mind when he spoke of calling
the roll of his slaves on Bunker Hill?"
Evidently the Springfield Republi-
can has forgotten the lamented Gra-
dy's message of reconciliation.
In his celebrated response to the
toast of "The New South," delivered
at a banquet of the descendants of the
Puritans, the great orator took par-
ticular pains to inform his northern
auditors that the remark attributed to
General Toombs was never made.
It began to go the rounds when pas-
sions were inflamed; and, having
found lodgment in receptive minds at
a time of tremendous upheaval and
unrest, it has been almost impossible
to uproot the malicious libel.
On the eve of the war General
Toombs delivered his famous lecture
on "Slavery" in the city of Boston. He
was not afraid to say what Be Thought,
and in the course of his speech he
said quite a number of things which
were not exactly relished by his audi-
ence; but there is not a sentence in
this great masterpiece of eloquence
which can be construed into anything
like the remark which has been at-
tributed to the "unpardoned rebel."
It the Springfield Republican poe-
sesses positive evidence of the fact
that this expression was ever used by
General Toombs, we will be due the

ceipt of the proof.-Georgian.

S FATHER AND HIS GUN
A story is spreading about town to-
day that is making one young man
feel decidedly uncomfortable.
About two weeks ago the young man
met a young woman who lives in
Hyde Park. He made several visits
to her home and seemed to think that
he was making a hit.
On hts last visit a couple of nights
ago he and the young lady had the
parlor for themselves. After talking
to her for half an hour he went over
to where she was sitting and told her
that he was going to kiss her.
"Don't you dare," the coy maid re-
plied. "Well, I do dare, and here
goes," said the young man. "If you do
I'll tell papa," the maid returned. "No
you won't." "Yes, I will." "I'll take

MISTAKES WE HAVE MADE
To the Editor Oeala Banner:
Taken altogether, the political
management of this government of
ours has been wonderfully, almost
phenomenally, successful. But it is
human to err, and, of course, we be-
ing human, have sometimes made mis-
takes, but the deplorable fact connect-
ed with our mistakes is that even
when it is possible to retrieve, or
abate the injurious effects of the er-
ror, we persist in maintaining it.
Among the few grave and far-
reaching mistakes that our govern-
ment has made, in my opinion, the
most ergregious blunder of all was
taking on the Philippines. The mis-
take began when Dewey destroyed the
Spanish fleet in Manila bay. If he
had simply bottled it up in the bay
and held himself in readiness to strike
back if any American interests were
threatened in the Pacific. it would
have accomplished all that was need-
ed and saved the lives of many men.
That fleet was not threatening any in-
terest of the United States, but was
there to aid in putting down an insur-
reetion of the Filipinos against the
Spanish governmentn. We have teen
pretty constantly doing the same
Thing ever since we took the burden
on our hands. If Dewey had only
guarded the interest of the United
States in the Orient and along the
Pacific coast, which he could easily
have done against all of the forces
Spain had in and around the Philip-
pines. or could possibly have sent
there, the results which followed the
close of the war would, in all proba-
bility. have been far different from
what they were. and now are. and in
my opinion, infinitely to our good. Of
course we all grew wild with. delight
over Dewey's exploit at the time, but
if it had never occurred it is extreme-
ly doubtful if at the treaty of Paris
anything would ever have been said
about the ceding of the Philippines to
the United Sta'es. To acquire them
either by purchase or conquest was
against the theory and long estab-
lished policy of our government. The
taking o: them has cost us millions ot
money which might, could and should
have been spent in developing ant se-
curing to ourselves the peaceful en-
joyment of the vast and splendid ter-
ritory of unparalleled resources we al-
ready had. If these millions spent in
buying the Philippine Islands, the
church lands (so-called) and in im-
proving the fortifications, dry docks.
roads, school houses, maintaining the
army there, and the many other ex-
penses we have been put to in these
useless possessions, had been spent
in our own dear country in improving
our rivers and harbors, reclaiming
waste lands by Irrigation and diain-
age. building roads, fortifying our
coasts, in short, to the
things which would tend
to the build-
ing up of such a country as the world
has never seen before, it would have
not only been following out our estab-
lished policy, but would have re-
dounded to the general good, growth
in wealth, progressiveness and peace
and happiness of our country. It
would have saved many precious lives
and avoided the necessity of such
heavy tariff taxation of our people. As
it is. we are simply robbing our own
people, retarding the upbuilding of
our home country and governing an
alien people without their consent!
To promise them independence as
soon as they are qualified to govern
themselves is but a sounding brass
and a tinkling cymbal, for it is based
upon a condition which can rever
happen. It means a moral and intel-
lectual uplift to which the Filipinos
can never attain.
To retain these islands simply
means an increasing burden upon us
and a constant menace to the peace
of our country. Instead of increasing
our wealth it is a constant drain upon
our treasury. Instead of increasing
our strength as a nation, it decreases
it to an alarming degree. No one who
gives the situation a few moments'
thought can doubt that if we should
be so unfortunate as to become in-
volved in war with any nation equip-
ped with a navy of any considerable
strength, that we would find ourselves
far more vulnerable than at any for-
mer period in the history of our coun-
try. And why, and for what are we
called upon to retard the progress and
endanger the peace and prosperity of
this unsurpassed country of ours? We
have in the United States territory
enough to sustain in splendid prosper-
ity three or four times the population
we have. It is broad enough to con-
tain, and does contain, in unlimited
abundance, everything that is neces-
sary to insure the peace, happ' :ess
and prosperity of its loyal citi-ens.
There was no need for us to burden
ourselves with this constant drain
upon our people and menace to our
erty, and at one stroke do more to
strengthen ourselves against possible
attack by Just giving away the islands
to any nation which cares to tave
them, than all the money expended
on our sea coast defenses in the last
ten years has accomplished. It is
never too late to do a wise thing. Dis-
pose of the islands instead of spend-
ing billions on them. Educate the
Filipinos up to a capacity for self-gov-
ernment! Bah! What has become of
poor Lo? Why have we not educated
him up to good citizenship? Because-
well;. because a good Indian is a dead
Indian. The point of illustration is in
It was a big mistake to acquire
these islands, and it will be a master-
stroke on the part of our government
to dispose of them.

at least two other big mistakes which
I think our government has made-

OUT AT CAPULET
On Saturday, the 5th day of June,
I went out to Capulet, where I went
some years s ,, *t "*-' ,h to the good
people who now live there. I went
by invitation and preached to a good
audience at 11 a. m., and at night also.
All seemed to be well satisfied. Ev-
erything has changed. The old mul-
berry trees at Brother Green's were
full of mulberries. I helped myself to
them, and knew I was at perfect lib-
erty to do so. In years gone by I ate
from them. Many of the dear ones
are now away and those remaining
are getting older fast. It really was
a great satisfaction to be among the
dear ones once again. God bless
them. I shall be with them again by
invitation. I. W. OGLE.
