TWO BRIGHT LITTLE BOYS DEAD
It is with regret that we announce
the death of little five-year-old J. G.C
Roberts, which happened about four
o'clock on Wednesday afternoon at the
home of his parents, Mr. and Vis.
George Roberts in the northern divis-
ion of this city. The funeral took
place out at Bethel church at 2:30 on
Thursday afternoon, Elder A. B. Car-
gile of the Advent Christian Church
officiating. ; ;
Little J. C. wasa fine little boy and
enjoyed good health until he was at-
tacked with a severe attack' of dysen-
tery and complications which he had
not strength to overcome. '
Little Joseph Tomlinson passed .
away on Thursday morning at two
o'clock at the hQme :of his patenAs,. .
Dr. and Mrs. J. R."Tomlinson, in the '
southern; part of the city.i'fThe little, *-
fellow had, about four week ag, su-
fered 'a hardd attack of da p-he.na i.,,
from 'which .he had..not i i :ll"
strength, when he 6 k ^^.6`
which caused, his death. .. ':;*.^;. ^
The funeral took place at the o0e *'
of Dr. and Mrs. Thomlinsen at 3: "
pn Thursday afternoon, with the inter-
ment in the. family lot in Oak Lav '
Cemetery, Rev. W. T. Cavell .of the
Episcopal church conducting the ser-
vice.
Little Joseph was three years old
in September, and was a bright, win-
some little boy, who was beloved by
the whole neighborhood.
BIG LYCEUM ATTRACTION
AT AUDITORIUM TONIGHT
People often pay a dollar for one
performance that.'is not nearly as
good as. the opening number of the
Lyceum course tonight.
No one man aggregation about this.
It's the biggest and best entertainment
that it is possible for five people to
work up-and every one a virtuoso.
The "Appollophone" is a wonderful
instrument, unlike anything else .on
the stage or on the market.
This superb program will be worth
much more than the cost of the entire
season ticket. It is an excellent op-
portunity to hear and see what people
usually have to go to larger cities to
get.
We predict that there will not be a
vacant seat tonight at the auditorium .

COMMISSIONERS MEETING
The County Commisioners met on
Wednesday but it was impossible for
us to get the entire proceedings in
this week's issue. They will be good
next week.
CONGRESSMAN CLARK TO BE
AT COURT HOUSE TUESDAY

Congressman Frank Clark will be
in Lake City Tuesday night and will
address the voters at the Court House
at the usual hour for such speaking.
Space prohibits us from making any
more lengthy announcement at this
time, as this bit of news reached us
too late.
On Saturday there will arrive the
finest1lot of mares seen in Lake City
for some time and will be on sale at
Sandim's Stabls on north Marion St.

IMPROVED SERVICE AT GRAND


Too much cannot be said of the ex-
cellent way in which manager McCols-
key has handled the motion picture
business in Lake City. Ever alert to
the best to be obtained in his line, he
has now arranged to give daily mati-
nees beginning Saturday, October 28,
and .will run a line of pictures that
will appeal to all,
Owing to the fact that this new ar-
rangement is being made it is imposi-
ble to give a correct program of the
coming week's features, hence the
absence of that feature on our front
page this week.
Manager McColskey will have !an
interesting announcement to make
in next week's Index-watch for his
full page advertisement.
Some well meaning person brought
a lady's hat to the Index office last
Tuesday, saying he picked it up in the
toad just this side of Red Hill. Owner
can have same by calling at the Index
office.

'On November 3rd and 4th Lake City
is to have the distinction of having
the first Scientific Temperance Insti-
tute in this part of the state. All the
teachers in Columbia county are ex-
pected to attend.
The law makes it the duty of all
public school teachers to teach speci-
ally the injurious effects of alcohol
and tobacco on the human body. As
many teachers have not been accus-
tomed to teaching this specialty, these
Institutes are intended to give them
the special professional fitness, ,under
eminent experts, and every induce-
ment has been held out to get the
teachers to attend.,
This is a most important work; and
is but another achievement of the cru-
sade inaugurated a few years ago by
the Woman's Christian Temperance
Union.
These meetings will be held in the
High School auditoriums and are for
the purpose of studying that phase of
their curriculum which deals with the
effect of alcohol.
eA series of lectures .and addresses
will impart to the teachers of this
county a perfect system by which to
instruct the students from the primary,
grades up, ast to the care of their
bodies, and the necessity of protection
against the disastrous effect of alco-
hol and tobacco upon their well being.
A pleasing feature of the Institute
will be a reception given by the Wo-
man's Club and the W, C. T. U. on
.Saturday afternoon at four o'clock at
the home of Mrs. H. A. Wilson on De-
Soto street, where -the teachers will
meet the friends of this cause and get
into touch with a greater number of
representatives citizens who are de-
lighted to tender every possible cour-
tesy to the visiting teachers, arid to
co-operate in every way possible for.
the promotion ,of this splendid cause.
The interest of this city as an en-
tiretIy s aroused in this. moveynent
and all the teachers 'in the'. county.

any shall have been overlooked, this is

THE FLORIDA INDEX, LAKE CITY, FLORIDA


was a Democrat then. (Applause.)
After the people had voted, and the
Cracker Democrats of Florida had set
around as inspectors, and had count-
ed up the votes, and the Cracker
voter had sat there and watched them,
and had taken copies of what they
had done, I Knew that the Democratic
party of Florida had spoken, and its
will will stand. (Applause.) I still
supported my friend Knott. I still
was a Knott man, because I die with
my friends. The law provided that
the canvassing board was the machin-
ery of the Democratic party, and it
met within 20 days after the pri-
mary; and all Democrats had the
'right to go into the courts or to go
anywhere in any tribunal and have
any sort of recounts that they wanted
to have, but my candidate, my friend,
the man I voted for, did not do it. He
sat in his office; he waited; he wrote
letters and got information, and I be-
lieve that he had all the information
that was necessary to bring about his
recounts before the Democratic party
in its canvassing board met, but he
went into court and asked for an in-
junction, and gentlemen, that was
right. That was Democratic. He had
the right to go and ask the court to
enjoin the Democratic party from act-
ing that he might take some further
action, but the courts said he could
not do it, and the Democratic party
of Florida moved on, and it counted,
canvassed and declared the result of
the Democratic primary, and when it
did that, it said that Sidnev "J. Catts
was the nominee of .the Democratic
party (loud and prolonged applause)
for governor."
A Voice: "Going to say it again,
too."
Mr. Hodges: And then, my friend,
the man I voted for went out and filed
his recounts in the Circuit Court, and,
gentlemen, Democrats of Florida, I
leave it to you whenever he went into
court after the party had acted, after
the party had closed up the matter,
then and there, gentlemen of this com-
mittee and Democrats of Florida, he
became an independent, and it is the
duty (loud applause)-it is the duty
of Democrats of Florida. to stamp
this thing out. (Applause.) Gentle-
men, and Mr. Chairman, this inde-
-pendent shoe is pinching the feet of
those men, and they will go out into
this campaign and try to put it on
our foot, but we will not wear it.
We are the true Democrats of Flor-
ida. (Applause.) The Democratic
party is in danger. Who is threaten-
ing it ?
A Voice: Catts!
Another Voice: Knott is threat-
ening it! (Loud applause.)
Mr. Hodges: What newspapers
are threatening the Democratic party
today A Voice: The Times-Union!
Mr. Hodges: I have in my pocket
the records to 'show, a document to
show where the danger to the Demo-
cratic party comes from, and I am go-
ing to read it to you. (Applause.) I
have an editorial published in the
morning paper in this city yesterday
morning. It claims to be the greatest
Democratic daily in Florida. It pro-
poses to give to you, gentlemen, to
give to the people of Florida your De-
mocracy. It supports William V.
Knott. It supports, or is not supnort-
in-, Wilson. for president. Now,
listen:
$
THE WILSON VOTE
"The New York World; employed the
services of Louis Sibbotd, a trained
observer, and sent him into the doubt-
ful states and others to collect ma-
terial for an authoritative forecast of
the prospect for the political cam-
paign. This report has been made,
and is the most instructive for the
light it gives on the hopes entertained
at Democratic national headquarters.
No doubt is felt as to the votes of
the Southern states. These are given
to the Democratic nominee as a mat-
ter of course without investigation as
to the temper of the people. Many
of them (speakmsn of us) many of
them loved McKinley; Roosevelt es-


pecially appealed to some,, and we all
admired Taft (think of that), but
they voted the Democratic ticket. This
will do while the candidates advocate
Democratic principles, but how much
longer-(The Times-Union sounds the
note)-how much longer will we vote
for Democratic candidates for presi-
dent? Since the South caAnot elect
a Democratic president, where shall
other reports be obtained? (And then
the Sibbold report tells us; then it
copies from the Sibbold report. We
are talking about- what the Times-
Union says. Then it goes ahead.)
President Wilson has not hesitated to
violate pledges and promises made on
the platform on which he stood as a
candidate, promises and pledges he
accepted as personal and binding in
1912. Will he be more- loyal to the
Democratic platform of 1916? Con-
fessing in' advance his obligations to
the P,-ogressive and Socialistis voters.
will President Wilson during a second
term consider himself a Democratic
official? He has declared that the
Democratic party is, only the instru-
ment through which he serves the
people; or he has declared himself
free of all the' bends of Democratic,
faith and principles."
** *
"Now, gentlemen, this comes from
your local morning paper, the great-
est Democratic daily in Florida. It
tells you that Knott is the nominee.
It tells you not to-vote for Wilson.
Are you going to be bound by it? It
has unbound you. It has struck the
shackles off you, so you can vote
against Wilson, the regular nominee,
but- it is goini- to try to tie your
hands down to a court decision to
I


support William V. Knott for govern-
or. (Applause.)
"Now, gentlemen, I haven't got any
of these recounts. It is no use to dis-
cuss them. We all know. Every citi-
zen in Florida knows how damnable
and how dishonest they have been con-
ducted. We know. (Applause.) We
know how the contestant stood up and
had read in the Supreme Court a let-
ter signed bv him saying, 'Yes, you
can strike out Madison county.' That
reminds me of my practice among the
negro criminals, that when one gets
convicted he admits that he did steal
the pig. We cannot state that the
court acted with partiality. I have
got no criticisms- to make of the
court. I believe in the court, and when
I take a case into court, and I try it,
that court has got jurisdiction of the
subject matter of that case, got ju-
risdiction of my client, and it has got
jurisdiction of me, and it can put me
and my client in jail, and it' can sell
our property, but when this court
takes, jurisdiction of this kind of a
matter, and undertakes to make the
people vote for a certain man, they
have no jurisdiction, because thev
cannot send down and get a Demo-
cratic voter and put him in jail if he
refuses to vote for the man they sug-
gest. I
A Voice: We ain't going to vote for
him, either.
Mr. Hodges: And whenever we go
.to court-you have all been to court.
You have seen court trials go on, and
you have seen a lawyer bring in a
witness and set him down before a
iiry, and the court, and ask him some-
thing. Now, no lawyer will ask a wit-
ness a question unless he knows the
witness is going to tell something
good for his case, but the lawyer on
the other 'side says, 'I object,' and the
court says, 'State your objection,' and
they state it,, and it is) there for the
court to decide. The court decides
that the witness cannot speak. Do
youi stand up in the back of the court
room and say that the court is par-
tial? No. The court's hands are
bound. We have rules that are hand-
ed .down to us from old England gov-
erning the introduction of testimony,
and those rules must be applied. Many
times courts feel a sentiment to over-
ride and overrule those rules and hear
this witness, but when clients who
want to win their case on technicali-
ties and quibbles have their lawyers
to object, the court has to sustain it.
I feel satisfied that the Supreme Court
wanted to hear the testimony of old
man Jack Knowles of-White Springs
about how those ballots had been
changed, that he had marked and had
identified by putting a cross mark or
some kind of a cross mark on them.
I believe those fellows wanted to hear
it, but William V. Knott and his law-
yers objected and the court's hands
were tied. and they had to sustain it.
Mr. Knott is the man to be condemned.
He is the man that has acted undemo-
craticallv. He is the man, and going
to the polls, gentlemen, I take care of
it, as I said, but I have no criticisms
to make of the Supreme Court. I be-
lieve they acted fairly, and I know the
people of Florida will act fairly. I
know what you will do. Sidney J.
Catts has been the nominee of the
party. Sidney J. Catts will remain
the nominee of the party. Sidney J.
Catts will be elected governor of Flor-
ida on November 7th, 1916!" (Pro-
longed applause.)

THl FIRST NATIONALBANK

OF LAKE0CTY
LAKE CITY, FLORIDA *
United States Depository For Postal Savings Funds


Jacksonville, Oct. 7.-Hon. J.B.
Hodges, of Lake City, speaking to his
resolution before the State Democrat-,
ic Committee, made one of the great-
est arguments ever offered in history
before such a body of men. Deep
thinking men were heard to say that
it is "a great pity we cannot have such
men as this in the United States Sen-
ate; they are the sort that the people
need and should elect, and just the
sort of men who generally refuse to
enter politics as candidates." While
it is generally understood that Mr.
Hughes is not obtainable in politics as
a candidate, he certainly is believed
to have laid an excellent foundation
for any future he might aspire to,
Whatever his present attitude might
be toward a political boom for him-
self., He was applauded to the echo as
he proceeded; his righteous, sincere,
earnest arraignment of Mr. Knott
made a visible and telling effect on
the latter, who stood leaning one el-
bow on an empty steam radiator, and
repeatedly was seen to wince as Mr.
Hodges related his own feelings and
steps in this campaign with reference
to Mr. Knott and the nominee, SID-
NEY J. CATTS. The following ex-
tract from a verbatim report contains
the Hodges address:

HON. J. B. HODGES
"Whereas, it appears to this com-
mittee that the contest for Democrat-
ic nomination has not yet been ended;
and
"Whereas, this committee does not
desire to take premature action where
tlfe first interests of harmbony and
good feeling in the party are in jeop-
ardy; and
"Whereas, there exists at present
much bitterness and ill-feeling within
I the party ranks; and
S "Whereas, it is the' time-established
function .of this body to eliminate
strife and preserve all the traditions
of this party; therefore, be it
"Resolved, by this committee, That
no action be taken at this time on the
gubernational contest which is still
pending, and that this committee
urges all loyal Democrats throughout
the state to withhold judgment, until
this committee has fully determined
which is the proper course for all good
Democrats.
"Mr. Chairman, I move the adoption
of the resolution. (Seconded.)
S"Mr.. Chairman, this committee is
the recognized head of the Democratic
party in Florida, and it has been stat-
ed in the call that the chairman has
sent bout that the Democratic party is
in danger. I don't know what evi-
dences there were before you when
Syou sent that letter out, but I pre-
sume there was some. I want to say
that I agree with you that the Demo-
cratic party of Florida, is in the grav-
est kind of danger of capsizing. When
I came to Florida as a boy from the
good old state of Georgia I heard
Solder men tell me about the days that
they fought the independent, and I
sat there and listened to them, and I
regretted that I had been born as late
as I was, and that I could not have
come to Florida in the eighties and
'the latter seventies, and participate
with the Democrats of this old state
and drive independentism from the
Democratic party, and I thought that
I would spend my whole life as a
Democrat just voting in primaries,
but I believe now, gentlemen, that the
time has arrived when the Democrats
of Florida can get together and drive
from the ranks of the party an inde-
liendentism that has sprung up in our
ranks, and the victory will be more
glorious than it was to those old gray-
haired men who still tell us about how
they drove independentism out of the
party.
In the primary this year I
voted. I electioneered. I was active.
,1 I did all that I could for those men
who I deemed would make good of-
ficers. William V. Knott was my
choice in the primary for governor. I
went over my county, and I saw my
friends, and I did all that I could to
Secure the nomination for him. He

it is the best and most healthful ingredient

Phosphate and alum, which are de-

some baking powders, instead of cream of

Liquor Men Against Votes for Women
By a vote,of 72 to 58, the Connecti-
cut Federation of Labor at its annual
convention re-announced its support
of woman suffrage. The opposition
came from representatives of the
Brewer's and Bartenders' unions who
claimed that woman's vote would work
injury to the liquor trade.
Twentieth century military tactics:
"'Trust in God and keep your army
dry." '
Labor unions of California sent rep-
resentatives to investigate conditions
under prohibition. They returned en-
thusiastic'for a law that is doing so
muckhto improve the conditions of the
workingman.

"'The air is full of straws and they
are all of the same color," says an
anti-liquor journal. Thev are all
blowing the same way, too.

The handsome bungalow of Mrs.

when Mrs. Rosemond and Miss Maude
Moseley together entertained the
members of the Shakesperian Club.
The house was made beautiful with
marigolds and roses in yellow and

An interesting feature of the after-
no6n was a written contest, the object
being to ascertain which member
could give correctly the greatest num-
ber of quotations from "The Comedy
of Errors," the play which has just
been read by the club.
Cream and cake, as well as mints
and punch, which were enjoyed, were
-.0 in the club colors, yellow and

States in going dry. The province
legislature first enacts a prohibit(
law, then submits it to a vote of tI
people.
From the Viewpoint of Finance


Which Will the Public Believe?
The liquor organizations, through
liberal purchase of advertising space
in newspapers which have not yet
freed themselves from liquor domina-
tion, are trying to fool the public into
believing that prohibition is a failure
from every point of view. Especially
are they attacking the law in the
newer prohibition states, even in their
desperation, quoting 21-year-old news-'
pa.. er articles to bolster up their argu-
ments. Their mis-statements, how-
ever, are so flagrant that they are
overreaching themselves. The adver-
tisement, claiming "increase in ar-
rests" in Denver, for example, is flat-
ly contradicted by the facts as set,
forth by Denver officials. Mayor
Speer is well known as a friend of the
wets, yet, says -the Denver Express,
he "has been startled at prohibition's
effect in decreasing crime." Safety
Manager Bailey (quoting further from
the Express) said "that he had been
convinced of prohibition's benefits
through the jail reports. The counimty
jail used to house from 200 to 250
prisoners daily; it now houses one-
third that number. The city jail used
to house about 100 prisoners a night;
it now harbors about one-tenth that
number, There were 71 prisoners in
the county jail Thursday and 18 in
the city'jail.
"The two officials believe that if
liquor can be entirely eliminated from
the city crime will be reduced to a
surprisingly low minimum."

Largest Dry City in America
Petrograd, Russia, is of course the
largest dry city in the world, and To-
ronto, Canada, with 400,000 popula-
tion, becomes by the Ontario prohibi-
tion act, the largest dry city 'in Ameri-
ca. ,By this act the province will be
under absolute prohibition for three
years, then a plebiscite will be taken
on the question of. its remaining dry
permanently.

LL COUNtY MATTERS. BE A BOOST


FORCED TO DO AN UNWILLING ACT
G HE State Canvassing Board has acknowl-
1 edged, over the signature of every member
Sof it, that it refused to change the original
count, that makes Catts the nominee, until forced
to do it by the Supreme Court. They did not
want to do it, and it seems that their only reason
for doing it was the order of the big court and
the danger of contempt proceedings-and perhaps
jail-if they declined to obey.
The Index wrote Secretary of State Crawford
about it, and he sent us a copy of the statement,
that was signed by himself, Attorney General
West and State Treasurer Luning. The state-
ment was in the form of a letter tol Attorney W.
W. Floutnoy, and reads as follows:
"Replying to your request of this date
[Oct. 7,] we beg to say that the Canvassing
Board has consistently refused to voluntar-
ily reassemble to take any action that would
change the result of the original canvass
made by the members of the Board of the
-returns from the primary election held or,
June 6, last, and we have not met since that
time only in obedience to the commands of
a peremptory writ of mandamus issued by
the Supreme Court directing us to do so."
If this wasn't being forced to act under com-
pulso4, then what would be ?
Three state officers being forced to do what
they did not think it was right for them to do!
If, they had thought it was right for -them- to
do this, they would have done it without being
compelled to do .Jt.
But no court can compel a man to vote!

SOUTHERN CALAMITY MAY RESULT
IN DOUBLE INCOME TO FARMERS
3iT s possible that the boll weevil, instead of
entirely destroying one great industry, may
create another-that is, if our farmers take
advantage of it.
It sees that the only way'to destroy most of
the weevils' and produce a. reasonable crop of cot-
ton in this section, after the weevils get well on
with their work, is to plant cotton where a num-
ber of turkeys maybe confined in it. ; "
Turkeys"l6ok for the weevils, and catch the most
of them--f 'here be turkeys enough. They also
catch the dreaded caterpillar that often does great
damage. .. ,
It will, therefore, be to any farmer's interest to
place his cotton where he may place his, turkeys,
also, And if he hasn't any, turkeys, then he
should get some tight away, and begin to increase
his flOck. /
And in his turkeys he will have an additional
source of income, for all who have tried turkeys
have. made -money. There is some difficulty in
starting the little "pee-pee's" off, but it does not
take: the women on a farm long to master that.
We have seen great flocks of turkeys used in the
tobacco fields of South Carolina to keep the worms
down, and the plan was a great 'success. ,
If raising turkeys will minimize the boll- weevil,
then a new source of income is open to our arm-
ers.' 0 i

And now comes a citizen of Jacksonville named
Nat Bryan and says that he will take the stump
and make speeches for Knott! Of Course!!
HOW ABOUT A PERMANENT EXHIBIT?
i ^y^ OW about a bunch of business men of Lake
I |t City coming together and renting the store
r lately vacated by Mrs. Crowley and keep a
permanent'agricultural exhibit there? Such a
thing has proven a great drawing card for a num-
ber of towns, and it would help Columbia'county.
All the' great highways cross on Dural street,
near this. vacant store, and with a special invita-
tion posted at each hotel and garage, nearly all
who pass through would see the exhibit.
No better method has ever been tried to get the
resources of, a county advertised..
The Index will be one of any reasonable hum-


RANEY AND HODGES
AT this writing, we don't know that the joint
debate between Chairman Raney of Ithe
State Committee -nd J. B. Hodges of Lake
City, is to take place.
We do know, however, that Chairman Raney,
with all due respect to him, will have a rather
difficult one defending the action-of the commit-
tee in endorsing Knott as the"Democratic nomi-
nee before the Supreme Court had decided the
contest. The disruption of the party in this year
of grace is due primarily to the State Committee,
in its adoption of those notorious and obnoxious
resolutions-and its more recent action in endors-
ing the candidate'who had not yet been declared
the nominee has added fuel to the flames.
In case the debate takes place it will be a lively
one, but we feel safe in saying that it will' not do
the party any good, because of the impossibility of
Chairman Raney, succeSsfully defending the act-
ion of the party organization.-TTampa Tribune.
Then how in the name of common sense can
the Tribune support Knott and the State Commit-
tee, which that paper charges with the, disruption
of the party? ? ? ? ? 9 .? ? ?

THE MASONIC HOME AND ORPHANAGE
E cannot change our minds from the fact
* that Lake City is the logical place for the
30 Florida State Masonic Home and Orphan-
age. To this end we are urging our people to
make a strong, united effort: and we believe they
will win ifthey do.
The city has all the land necessary for such an
institution, without having to buy it: so that what-
ever our people would otherwise contribute to-
wards, a fund for purchasing a site may now be
.Contributed towards a building, fund-and so each
citizen's contribution to the matter may thus be
made larger.
Lake City can offer every inducement in health-
fulness, transportation; lights and water that any
other. locality can offer, and in many-, respects
more; and ,the only thing left is the size of our
contribution to the building fund: it mray be that
that will settle it..
Now, this is "big.business," we know, but Lake
City and Columbia county are capable-of big

things, if they only could realize it.
If this institution were here it would not be
.long till it would be one of the best customers
that the merchants and farmers of the county
would have. In fact, there is not a man in the
county who would.not bedirectly benefitted by
the institution being here, to say nothing of ,the
benefit to values. '
Whenwthis matter' was mgelrtioajed,tothe ci'ity
council it was refererd to, their improvement 6om-
6nittee, Composed of Messrs. Helvenston, ,Chalker
and Roberts. Since that time the Masonic lodge
has 'appointed a-gtrong-, committee; 'composed of,
Chief G. O. Adicks; Dr. -. J; P. Julian, C, J. Ry7
na, F. P. Cone and L,, HIarrison. ;,
It :is now proposed that the ,committees from
the council and Masonic lodge meet with citizens
of the city on Monday .night at' 730:a at the Court?
House.,\
Everybody that would be glad t0,see'this im-
portant institution here should be on' hand Mon-
day night. A few minutes will be given to the
business of the Boosters Club and the' Athletic
Association, and all member's of' these two organi-
zations should also be there:
It is a good time to do something.

-'APPROPRIATION SECURED
A S announced in last week's Index, the State
/.Highway Commission 'has set apart $5,000
of government road fund, to be spent with.
a, like amount contributed by Columbia county on
the road between Lake City and the 'Baker county
,line. At the proper time further announcement
will be made of the date of commencing opera-
tions) etc.
', The Index is glad to have been able to take a
hand in this road mater."


RESOLUTIONS

Adopted by the First Baptist Church
of Like City, Florida, Oct. 1, 1916.
Whereas, our beloved pastor, Rev.
Clarence D. Creasman, has been call-
ed from us to become the pastor of the
Third Baptist Church of Nashville,
Tennessee; and
Whereas, during his brief but act-
ive and profitable ministry in our
midst he has gained a warm place in
the hearts- of the members of this
church and of the people of Lake City
in general;
Be it therefore resolved, that bv this
means we express to Brother Creas-
man and his wife, whose good work
hads likewise been abundant, our deep
and sincere regret that they are to
leave our midst: and that we assure
them that our love and our prayers
attend them wherever they may be en-
gaged in the Master's work; and
Be it further resolved that the clerk
of this church be, and hereby is, in-
structed to send a copy of this resolu-
tion to Brother Creasman and wife; a
copy to the clerk of the Third Baptist
church of Nashville, Tennessee; and a
copy together with the request to pub-
lish the resolution, to the following
papers: The Florida Baptist Wit-
ness, The Baptist and Reflector, iThe
Lake City Index, and the Citizen-Re-

OUR SUBSCRIPTION CONTEST
-HE main objects of *,the subscription contest
I now being conducted for the Index are to
I collect arrearages and renewals and to se-
cure lnew subscriptions. These objects have been
attained, and today the Index has a larger circu-
lation in Columbia county, by several hundred,
than any other paper.I
Soon after the present management took hold
of the Index the fact became apparent to all its
readers that it came nearer to representing the
masses in Columbia county--was more in touch
with the people than any paper here had been in
several 'years. This is not our editorial opinion,
but the freely expressed sentiments of the people:
they do not hesitate to say so. 1,
The one thing we realized was that our imme-
diate predecessors hadi[not lived up to their privi-
lege of reaching the people; and, although from
what we considered reliable information, we real-
ized that our circulation was about as large as
that of any other'paper circulating in the county,
still we-knew that there were several hundred
people in the county ,Vo would subscribe for the
Index if only they were acquainted with its pres-
ent editorial cast. Those who were reading this
paper were telling others, and we soon saw that
we had sufficient footing to branch out.
We investigated several contest plans and adop-
ted the one that appealed to us as being the fair,,
est. And one characteristic' of our contest has
been that all contestants' have received equal
treatment andi consideration. Another good point
i; that it has been impossible for one candidate to
learn how many votes another had, and, above all,
no- "tip" as to "what it would take to land the
prize" has been given to anybody: nor will it be.
We: have been told that not a thousand, miles
'from .here and less than forty years ago, in a
newspaper contest, during the closing, a message
was `sent outto a .contestant that he needed more
votes in order to win. In this way, we are told,
nearly a hundred dollars more than he needed to
put in to win were exacted, and it is no surprise
that he has felt sore over this species of robbery
ever since. It should be left to the contestants,'
and them alone, as to how much business each
shall secure and turn-in.
A newspaper contest can be conducted as fair-
ly and honorably as ,any other business: it all de-
pends upon the fairness and honor of those behind
it. I
Both the Campaign Manager and the Index
Printing Company might have profited consider-
ably in dollars and cents-we don't know-if we
had "tipped" here and there, and led candidates
to put up money to win: but a clear conscience,
and open face and an eye that does not dart
askance to avoid looking a fellow-man in the face,
are worth more to. us than all -that ill-gotten coin
would be. If others can hold up their heads after
such false pretense, that is their affair: we could
not.
So far as we have been able to ascertain, the
campaign has been fair to everybody

THE EFFECT OF ALCOHOL ON
THE HUMAN BODY
(By Mary Futcl age 84iIth Grade.)
S(Last Term.)
Our bodies are made of very deli-
cate cells and fibers. We know that
alcohol burns your body because you
can take a glass of alcohol and put a
piece of raw meat or an egg in it.
and it will cook it as if in a pan of
hot grease.
Alcohol also stops the flow of the
juices that digest our food, and then
we suffer from indigestion. The red
corpuscls are injured and shrivelled
s they catn not take up the oxygen
as,.the air, rushes through the lungs.
Alcohol injures the heart as it does
all other parts of the body, and it
causes fat to form around it, and then
it, cannot do its work as well as #ature
intends it to do. and it causes you to
have heart trouble.
Alcohol also injures the liver, and
causes it to have fat around it, too,
and then it cannot make the bile' we
so much need to digest out food. "
Alcohol reaches the heart first nd
the liver second, and it reaches the
kidneys last;,and it is then not as
strong as it was at first, but even then
it will hairm the kidneys so that they
cannot eary away the. poison from the
body.
I Alcohol injures the brain and makes
a person weak-minded.
Alcohol paralyzes the. nerves. A
man may do more work for a short
time after using alcohol, but it is very
short; and later he feels the weaken-
ing effect of it, and he can't do as
much after this as before. You can
see this in the case of a man "dead
drunk." He falls from one side to
the other because he has been tempo-
rarily paralyzed.
Prof. Hodge, of Clark University,
tells of'his own excetiments with ani-
mals. He selected four puppies, and
trained them to recover a ball thrown
across a gymnasium. Two of the
dogs were fed& alcohol in their food,
and the other two were fed normally.
The ball was thrown 100 feet as rapid-
ly as recovered- This was repeated
100 times each day for fourteen suc-
cessive days. Out of the 1400 times
the dogs to whom the alcohol had been
given brought back the ball only 478
times, while the others secured it 922
times.
Alcohol -also ruins a man's morals,
maker him untruthful, and makes him

THE FLORIDA INDEX, LAKE CITY, FLORIDA


A KNOT FOR KNOTT TO CRACK
During the past few days there
have registered in the DeLand pre-
cinct 216 negroes.
They have registered in droves.
They have been brought in and their
names placed upon the books of the
county by or throu-gh the influence of
one man, the Repubocrat boss of the
county, who will vote them as a unit
on election day.
These negroes, together with those
already registered,, wil constitute the
balance of power 'in Volusia county
politics.
Every negro who votes will abso-
lutely kill the vote of one white man.
They are being registered for -nu---
pose, said to be the election of W. V.
Knott as governor ;n case his name
and that of Sidney .T. Catts both qn-
pear upon the official ballot. Ask the
negro who works for you. and if he
doesn't lie he will probably tell you
that bI, intends to vote for "Mister
Knott."
/ Do the white voters of Volusia coun-
ty 'intend to permit the Repubocrat
boss of the co-ntv to kill their votes
by the use of the worst class of negro
floaters ?
It is up to you, gentlemen.
The News is not a Catts orvan. The
writer did not vote for Catts in the
sune primary; he sur'-^ted Hudson.
If the negroes were today being or-
ganized to vote for Catts or any other
candidate -nd nullify the expressed
desires of*the b.tte, elas of citizens
The News would fight -ist as, hard
against the scheme as ;'; is now will-
Sing to do.
As a rule. the ne,- voter will be
driven like sheep to '' slaughter, and
one man will cast early 250 votes.
Is this the kir( 4f goverm nt +t,

they permit it?-DeLand News.-

FRIENDS,
Your favorite candidate is going to be very busy during
the few short hours that remain of this campaign. If you
have promised to help them at the last, this is your last
opportunity to\do so. Every day there are candidates call-
ing at the office inquiring if Mr. So and So paid his. sub-
scription.* They are expecting you to fulfill that promise.
Don't disappoint them. It may be that your subscription
will earn enough votes to yin the Ford auto for your fa-
vorite. Wouldn't you feel mighty bad after it was all over
if your favorite lost and youi subscription would have
made her the winner? The race is close-your favorite
will appreciate your support. Give it before 6 p. m. Satur-
day. '

FOR PAID IN ADVANCE SUBSCRIPTIONS


CANDIDATES'
It is true that subscriptions don't count as many votes
now. as they did during the period which closed Wednesday
night, but each subscription counts just as, fast now for
you as it does for your competitors. Don't let yourself
believe that you have enough votes to win without making
an effort during the last few hours. You must secure
every subscription for just as long, as you can,- they all
count and it may be the last subscription you receive that
wins the Ford prize for you. Just sit down and think--
did some good friend who helped you at first say; "Now if
you think you need more at the last, call on me again.'?
The last is here-you need their help and you,need it bad-
lty. Call on them, secure evey votethat youi can-get that
"other one." ., i *. ...
