If we must hive war, let Jackson-
ville go out after the encampment of
Catts' Regiment of Fighting Florida
Crackers.
It will be worth a rip to Black Point
to see onita-ander-iu-chlef Sidney .,
and "Majah" John Howard Mackey
with their swords. How anxious are
we all to see ,Quartermaster J. V.
Burke again.
Then side by Idew will'see Lieu-
enan Billy Parker ad
Le* s. How gloriouswill it be to see
that bold and defiant Captain Ralph X.
Roberts And Sergeant E1* B. Donell.
With "bated breff" we will gaze
,with admiration at the elastic steps of
Corporals S.' 8. 'Hodges and F., W.
Butler.
Oh we mu noth overlook recruits
totenavy. Charlie Morgan, the Ad-
miralan the "Admirable," who alone
enjoys the distinction of having seen
service before-will be on hand in all
his glory. We expect to see him re-
inforced by Commander Jeems Alex-
ander and Chief.Gxuner Joe Slattery.


Oh! if vocal organs were only thirteen-
inch guns!I
Already we hear from Wall Street
that the best way to fight Germany is
to lend the Allies billions of dollars
and to keep our powder dry.
If this is the way we will have to
fight, then there will be -enlistments
from every hamlet. We will hear
much from these nation-savers who
will don the uniform of the soldier."
The trouble will come in the anxiety
to wear gold braid, but the command-
er-in-chief could s ettle this dispute
among his worshippers by wearing it
all himself.'
The Governor has declared he will
resign and organize his regiment. We
naturally expect something to be do-
ing very shortly.
As there float through my memory
cells the declaration made by this va-
liant, unflinching and invincible chief
of patriots,-.one little cell in memory's
domain gets active and sounds the
name of Sir Walter Scott and the ad-'
joining cells bringforth the following:
"One blast upon his bugle rhon
Is worth a thousand. men."


"Patriot" Jimmie Hodges' Free
Press, published in Lake City, calls at*
'tention that Governor Catts has An-
ek swered Dixie's exposures of violations
of the liquor laws and drinking car-
ousals under the name of "cAbarets,01
by the appointment of Reformer F. W.
Butler as county solicitor.
Mr. Hodges may be a great reform-
'er, but he is evidently the most ignor-
ant man in Florida regarding eoidi-
:tions in Jacksonville.t e
'* As soon as Mr. CAMt' friend anid
"Patriot" Hodges' friend, M;. Butler,
was appointed, the advertisements- of
"cabarets" became more conspiouous-
the crowds of drinking men and wo-
es nMen became larger, and violations of
the law became more flagrant. '
At the present time these violations
continue and have been more pro-
nounced since "Catts answered Dixte."
Just why the Free Press should ent-
deavor to deceive its readers is not
known. That there has not been any
change in these violations of the liquot
law in Jacksonville is positively kwn
to Governor Catts and to'evterybody in


Jacksonville and everyone in Florida
who visits Jacksonville or who reads
the Jacksonville daily papers.
That since Catts' friend has taken
thd oath of office the "cabaret" busi-
ness has been bigger and violations
more numerous is known to all fa-
miliar with the conditions, and this
includes the Governor.
"Patriot" Hodges, so long in the
service of the people and so long an
unrelenting enemy of the corporate in-
terests,- should come again to Jack-
sonville to investigate ( ?) the crimes
in this city.
Oh, yes; the Governor has answered
Dixie's exposures of violations of the
law in this city, and his answer has
not disturbed the violators. From the
increased size of the crowds violating
the law the violators appear very much
encouraged.
I The Free Press calls attention to
Dixie's fight against vice, but insists
that Catts has "answered" Dixie. The
Free Press, if it believes the "answer"
effective, certainly stands by violations
of the liquor* laws.

I believe an investigation will demonstrate this fact by a com-
mittee of the Legislature.
a
The gentle rumor has gone out, that if the Legislature will cre-
ate this new judgship, the present able Attorney-General will be
made the appointee.
This would be very complimentary to the present incumbent.
DIXIE thinks, however, that the cabinet boards need the emi-
nent services of the present Attorney-General who was elected for
a four year term, the people having his distinguished abilities in
mind in this particular.
A vacancy in this important office, would give the Governor an
opportunity to place a man in the Attorney-General's office who
would be raw in experience in Statecraft.
It would be a State calamity at this time to replace the present
Attorney-General's office with a novice in the State's public busi-
ness. .
Using the appointments already made, and to be made by the
Governor, as criterions, it behooves the Legislature to let well
enough alone.
It is reasonable to judge the future by the present and past.
The appointments made, or to be made, by the Governor, are
well known to have been, or to be, of men who are much inferior
in public ability to the men displaced or who will be displaced.
We have a CHRISTIAN for a FOSTER.
We will have a WILLIAMS for a JODGES.
A COX for a PORTER.
We,may get another HODGES for a WEST.
This proposition is loaded, gentlemen of the Legislature.
Let the present State Boards remain intact.
The Supreme Judges are not calling for relief.
i
It is no+ needed. .. ,
LET WELL ENOUGH ALONE.



STAMP IT OUT!

The menace to Florida's greatest industry is the citrus canker,
and the Legislature is asked to furnish proper appropriation for its
eradication.. '
T'he advisory bill prepared by D. C. Gillett of Tampa, and others,

who know the danger from the pest, provides for an appropriation
of $150,000 a year, for two years, which it is believed would stamp
out the mehiace to an industry, the value of which is estimated at
$250,000,000, and which in spite of the February freeze brought

forth a crop aggregating $17,000,000 to the growers alone'
The proper protection of this industry means a great deal to
Florida. -;,
There are 800,000 acres of citrus groves in Florida, and an aver-
age tax on same of $8 per acre would bring the sum of $2,500,000
paid by the growers for State and governmental purposes.
This production' represents Florida's greatest asset, and unless
the canker is wiped out its entire destruction may result.
/ 'The whole State of Florida is affected by this visitation.
In his able address to the House of Representatives this week
the presiding officer, Hon. Cary A. Hardee, impressively urged upon
the members that they were representatives of the entire State and
that all Florida looked upon them for wise action and support of all


measures beneficial to the State as a whole.
There was some opposition to the proposition two years ago from
West Florida because that section did not grow citrus fruits. This
policy is exceedingly narrow.
Should West Florida be invaded with the boll weevil the South
Florida representatives would cheerfully respond to the call for aid.
In 1888 yellow fever clouds hung heavily over a few towns in
Florida and Governor Fleming called the Legislature together in ex-
traordinary session, and members from eVery section immediately
established the State Board of Health and provided for the necessary
appropriation to stamp'out the scourge.
SThousands of groves are infected and the bacteria are easily car-
ried from one place to another.
Florida must wipe out the canker, or the canker will wipe out
its greatest asset. The duty of loyal, just men in these premises
is quite plain.
SFrom the records it is shown that in five years, if not eradicated
6y the cpnker, the citrus fruits of Florida will, with the annual out-
put of groves, reach a valuation of $40,000,000.
Florida cannot afford to have its greatest industry threatened
by :this disease and the personnel of the Legislature gives hope of
the proper relief,

WHEN ,NEAR A CAR TRACK,
AND'ACCIDENTS WILL BE AVOIDED


In their innocent plays, children have their

minds and hearts centered in the amusement.

They do not think of danger, and too often rush

into it when there are no indications of danger.
4
The^should be constantly cautioned about these

dangers.

There are over 2,500 automobiles using the

streets of Jacksonville and this source of danger

is constantly increasing.

A short while ago, a few miles'from Jackson-

ville, a child playing in the road ran in front of

an automobile and was killed. The driver of the

car was not to blame. He had no idea that the

child would dash 'across the road immediately in

front of the car.

The child had never been impressed with the,

.importance of stopping and looking when cross-

ing highways used extensively by automobiles.

Solonial Salmagundi
(By Charles E. Jones)
There's Wells from Tallahassee, and King from Inverness,
And in all deliberations they will do their level best.
There's a "Roland for your Oliver" among the members wise,
There's Sheppard, too, of Greensboro' to suppress the noisy "guys."
There is Kent and there is Blanton, from the little town of Lee,
Who will ever be found faithful, as the solonsi all will see.
There'A a worker from old Perry, and his name is Billy Cash, *
Who'll grab the many freak bills and make them into hash.
There's Calkins from dear Nassau, and Johnson from Live Oak,
And active Oscar Eaton who will make a fight for Polk.
There's Igou from sweet Eustis, way down in busy Lake,
Who is ever swift as "bell-cow" when justice is at stake.
There is Fogarty, the smiling, who hails from coral reefs,
Who will be plain and earnest in expressing his beliefs.
There's good "Old Nat," the fighter, from quaint old Crawfordville,
And Putnam, somewhat lighter, whose home is in Oak Hill.,
There's a man quite small in stature, ever ready for a fight,
A cyclone usually follows when attacks are made on Light.
There's Lewis, of Marianna, and a brother of our Hayes,
Who will scrap just like a panther, as he thinks of bitter days.
There's willful Willie Roebuck from Jimmie Hodges' town,
Who never borrows trouble and who never wears a frown.
There's a leader of the faithful-All hail! to Chief Hardee,
As he raps to order quickly Will Taylor of Manatee.
There's "Frankie" Clark of Gainesville-a son of noble sire,
Who in every honest battle will add fuel to the fire.
There's a man from Bradford county by the name of A. S. Crews,
Whom the selfish politicians dare never try to use.
There is Stockton-there is Jennings-big men from big Duval,
Who'll detect the schemes of plotters, and who will tell it all.
There's Farris, brave and hadsome--yes, Farris, true and bold,
Who figured in the slaughter when the party's rights were sold.
There's a Barber from Macclenny who'll provide you with a shave
As he sharpens up his razor to decapitate a knave.
There's Crosby from good Citra, and there's Moore of Carrabelle,
Who will throw their usual spasms when the foolish ones play hell.
There's "Jeems," the Alexander, in the column once so tall,
This resurrection calls us back to days of "Wilkie" Call.
There's Smith, who's always active, from down in Green Cove Springs.
He'll raise a mighty hurrah when old Catts' welkin rings.
There's a bunch of loyal servants too numerous here to name,
And in fighting for the people they will put the freaks to shame.
There's another little army-politically, "blind as bats,"
Which work into a frenzy at the very name of Catts.
There's another set of solons that forms a shameful band,
' Who lick the salt so greedily from Sidney's withered hand.

There are blessings to be sown, and blessings we must reap-
By pushing the disruptionists into oblivion o deep;
Then we'll sing the glad hosanna's in the triumph of the right-
When the host of hate and envy emerges into light.
Then well stamp the seal of virtue on this great and growing State,
And we'll bring our forces forward before it is too late.
Then we'll have a great reunion and join our hearts and hands,
And Democracy will reign again with the gathering of the clans.
May Almighty speed the movement-oh! may He speed the day,
When love and truth and justice will drive hate and hell away.

CATTOCRATS PLAN FOR FUTURE FIGHT.
(Continued from page One)
"Buck" Lanier, who played peek-a-boo with both Catts and Knott
and was ping-ponged until he landed into the Cattocratic camp, was
elected as secretary, but Burke also took upon himself this Herculean
task. Then E. C. Broward, genial and lovable, was elected treas-
urer and Burke performed the functions of this office. Then a cam-
paign manager was necessary and Burke of course took that posi-
tion. Handling all the money and getting close to Catts, and staying
close to Catts, it was quite natural that he should be carried to the
pie counter, and asked "Which one?"
Burke has his likes and dislikes. Quite naturally he don't want
any of the pie to feed the followers of Swearingen. Early in the
game he began to think that Billy Parker was getting too much glory
out of the movement.
Friends of Billy believe he is entitled to much consideration, as
he made more speeches and organized more for Catts through secret
orders than any other man.
Of course friction was expected in the ranks, but it has grown
to alarming proportions and will continue' to grow. ,
Ambitious "Patriots" will'bob up for office seeking reward for
services performed and a Killkenny cat fight will doubtless result.
If the Democrats will set quietly in the boat until the Legislature
adjourns and then organize, there will be no danger of Catts going
to the United States Senate-there will be no danger of Jim Hodges
or George M. Powell going to Congress.
If true Democratic leaders and true Democratic papers will do
their duty, the people will be posted and then they will act wisely.
Then again, if the Cattocratic leaders will only tell what they
know of each other, we'll get ready for an old-fashioned Demo-
cratic love-feast.

NO MORE LIQUOR ADS.
After June '30, 1917, no newspaper
or magazine carrying liquor advertise-
ments can be sent into dry territory.
This is the provision made in the "bone
dry"' rider attached to the postoffice
appropriation bill by the House and
agreed to by the Senate.
Very few Florida .weekly newspap-
ers will be affected by thi new law for
there are a very few weeies in this
State that permit their clumnns to be
used by liquor houses, bit the large
daily papers will suffer a toss of reve-
nue which, added to their' greatly in-
creased cost of print palr, will be a
matter for most serious c nsideration.
There is one way they can overcome
this, however. They can int a "pro-
hibition edition" for out-O-State mail
and circulate their regular liquor edi-
tions in Florida. E
The effect of this method in Florida
will be exactly opposite to that ex-
pected by a large numbe- of "wet"
members of Congress who voted for
the bill. On the evening of the day
this bill passed the Hous, we were
with a crowd of congressman who were
chuckling over the "one tley had put
over" the drys. They figul that this
"bone dry" provision would so disgust
some of the dry States ttat another
election would put them ack in the
wet column. Apparently tney did not
figure what great capital they were
making for the prohibiJonists in
States like Florida that ae now wet
in spots.-Leesburg Commercial.

found to be absolutely necessary. He
further stated that the eradication of
the tick was being felt by the meat
dealers of Florida, notably people like
the Armours, because the cattle were
already showing a very decided im-
provement, his firm having recently
purchased one of the carcasses slaugh-
tered in the Armour plant, and having
paid the highest price that was ever
paid for a dressed carcass for meat
purposes in Florida, namely 15 cents
per pound, dressed.
"Mr. Conroy has been to Miami and
other lower .east coast points, and
made diligent inquiry regarding the
Everglades and its possibilities for
raising live stock, and he is of the
opinion that this important develop-
ment should be fostered, both by the
United States government and the
State government as much as possible,
as it will be found that the stock busi-
ness, as in other States, will sooner or
later be one of Florida's most profit-
able industries. He referred to the
fact that the plant that has just been
established by Armour & Company in
Jacksonville is small, and he also re-
cited that when they first went to Ft.
Worth, Texas, they could not, for in-
stance, get sufficient hogs to operate
plants even one day per week, but now
the farmers, having been educated to
corn feeding, are supplying sufficient
hogs to keep the plant in operation the
year round, and all leading packers in
the country have established plants
there because of the development of
the live stock industry.
Mr. Conroy has traveled extensive-
ly, and compared the stock that he
saw in Holland when making an auto-
mobile trip through that country, with
the possibilities of stock raising in the
Everglades, feeling that the drainage
of the Everglades is nothing more than
the drainage of Holland was centuries
ago."

ERNEST AMOS.

During the campaign Mr. Ernest
Amos, candidate for State comptroller,
said that in the event of his election
he would do his utmost to have the
pensions of the Confederate veterans
paid monthly instead of quarterly as
now. The Times is glad to note that
Mr. Amos is carrying out his cam-
paign pledge, and when the Legisla-
ture meets at Tallahassee next month
it is probable that the members will
be asked to make possible the change.
Mr. Amos is a splendid man and a
fine citizen generally, but aside from
this we admire the man, politician or
otherwise, whose ideals are too lofty
to permit him making promises merely
to gain a point. Generally speaking,
the old Confeds are in needy circum-
stances, and their pension money in
some instances are their sole support,
and it certainly would be a gleat con-
venience to them if they received their
allowances -every thirty days.-Apa-
lachicola Times.

NO CHANGE.

Mr. Catts waged his campaign on a
platform of which these three were
the leading planks: Put the pope in
chains; make the priests marry; kick
Tumulty out of the white house. Just
what influence the Governor of Flor-
ida would have on such matters we
were never really able to comprehend,
but for the benefit of the hundreds
who voted for Mr. Catts on those
planks alone we beg to remind them
that the pope is still to be found at
Rome; TumIulty is still on the job un-
der Wilson, who is now being praised
by Mr. Catts. So far we have failed
to hear of any laws being enacted to
make priests, or any one else, for that
matter, marry. But that platform was
a winner, so no use to worry now over
even pretending to carry out its im-
possible planks.-Palatka Times-Her-
ald.

FRANK CLARK'S STORY.

Representative Frank Clark of Flor-
ida is said to be just about as good a
story teller as Representative Heflin of
Alabama. He heard of some of Mr.
Heflin's stories, and told this one at
the Raleigh:
"Several years ago in my district I
was.interested in a trial which had at-
tracted much attention throughout the
State. The lawyers on both sides were
making every point possible. The col-
ored population was much interested,
because it had to do with some of their
number. At a critical juncture of the
trial the prosecuting attorney sought
to establish with absolute accuracy the
' time of an occurrence and the place.
He had summoned a well-known col-
ored mani as a witness, and the latter,
knowing that he would be cross-qUes-
tioned severely, had primed and re-
hearsed for the ordeal. When he took
the* witness stand he wore an air of
bravado which delighted the colored
folk assembled to hear the testimony.
Here was one of their number who was
to be the equal of the white prosecutor.
The attorney, began:
".'Now, Sam, I want you to tell me
just where you were on the Saturday
night preceding this shooting.'
'Where was I ? I was jes two and
one-ha'f miles from de Baptis' church
in de village; dat's where I was, a talk-
in' to Jess Jones; data's where I was.'
lVery well,' continued the prose-
cutor. 'Where were you the next morn-
ing, Sunday, at 9 o'clock?'
'I was in the Baptis' church at-
tendin' Sunday school, dat's where I
was.'
"'Where were you at half-past 1
that afternoon ?'
"'Iwas in de Baptis', church attend-
in' church and listening' to preachin'.'
"Now, where were you Sunday
night at 9 o'clock?'
"'I was down two and one-ha'f miles
from de church a talking' to Jess Jones,
dat's where I was.'
"The prosecutor scratched his head,
and turning to his associate, apparent-
ly asked for a suggestion.I The court
room giggled and the wtiness bright-
ened up. He was sure he had made
a hit and had his questioner stumped,
exclaiming:
"'Come on wif your convisation,
white man, come on wif your convisa-
tion.' "-Washington Post.


EXIT HODGES.

Shell Fish Commissioner Hodges
will have a successor after July 1st,
for J. A. Williams, a Gainesville law-
yer, who was Governor Catts' counsel
.during his post-primary fights, will be
rewarded with an appointment for that
position for his services.
There is no fault to be found with
Mr. Hodges; he has discharged his of-
ten disagreeable duties conscientiously.
He has stimulated cultivation and pre-
servation of shell fish, and he has
broken in the rough elements among
the fishermen and they have learned
to obey the law, so that it will be easy
sailing for his successor. The princely
salary paid the commissioner-$166.66
per month and traveling expenses not
to exceed $800 per year, should hardly
be enough to tempt a lawyer with any
practice to exchange his business for
a job'on the Roamer, but this is nei-
ther here, nor there.
What concerns Floridians is the
power of the Governor of this State to,
for the sake of rewarding his friends
or punishing his adversaries, make ap-
pointments to please himself, without
in the least consulting the people in
the matter. The power of appointment
was not given him as a plaything, but
as a sacred trust. Former Governors
have seldom abused this power, and
therefore its dangerous possibilities
has not been remarked, but the high-
handed acts of the present head of af-
fairs has brought it in the lime light.
The people of Florida want their offi-
cers to be efficient men, to act accord-
ing to their best judgment; they do not
want cringing serfs, who dare not own

their own souls for fear that the au-
tocratic boss may find a cause for
firing them. The next Legislature will
probably trim the claws of czar ike
Governors for the future good of the
State.-Starke Telegraph.

Lovor d country should always be in-
stilled into the minds of all Americans,
both% yung and old. To secure this
coun.wi freedom valleys and hills
.were edwith the best American blood.
"" Reuts following secured the greatest
Sandhthe best nation on earth. That our
'advancement along lines of true Chris-
.tianijy and true patriotism has been in
a measure retarded, is due to the self-
isjinterests, and to those who profit
Othroqgh the misfortunes of the masses.
( intis great crisis we find press
burmus financed by millionaires with
the purpose in view of stimulating the
war.p rit We find men prompted
aloni by the desire to make millions
out of bloodshed urging the masses on
to battle. Some of these men, now
bent with age, having accumulated
their, millions, are grasping for more,
an, yet they proved cowards when
their country called them when they
were young enough to fight.

with the war. If prayers of millions
go up to stop it, these millions must
acknowledge that He was responsible
for its start.
If a world war is to come and to
continue until nations are vanquished
and untold millions are to suffer and to
die, it may be an Inscrutable Wisdom
that none can explain.

When Governor Catts carries out his
Atlanta promise and resigns from the
governorship to organize a regiment
of Florida Crackers, let us hope that
this great leader will be given all the
honor due him. The government should
not humiliate him by placing him and
his regiment in camp and detain them
there until peace is restored.
A marksman with no superior,
according to his own confession-
a man who has often expressed
his desire to achieve fame on
the battlefield, should not be hutili-
ated by being made into a tin-soldier.
During the Spanish-American War
men of valor offered their services on-
ly to be placed on parade. True, they
were dubbed "colonel," "captain," "ma-
jor," etc., afterwards, and the names
have clung to them, but never a chance
given them to show their true fighting
qualities. It is not just to men Who
have made a living talking patriotism
to deny them the opportunity of thbw-
ing what they can do in a real scrap.
The Governor need not confinehis
regiment to what is known asithe
"Florida Crackers." The Florida
Cracker is loyal to country and -he is
willing to fight. There are others who,
like the Governor, came from another
State who are just as patriotic, and
whose love of country is often, et-
pressed.
Then too, he should remember t ose
who, if their mouths and tongues were
Gatling guns, the Teutons would. be
routed in a single day.

The editor of the Miami Metro q1a
certainly knows nothing aboit the
laws of Florida. In a recent issue' he
says that any man who tells as pn-
truth about any religious sect 0o rny
organization can be prosecuted. ,ch
ignorance is deplorable.' Libel in Ftor-
ida must comprise the name of .ii-,
viduals attacked. Slander must com-
prise the names spoken. This should
be known to every intelligent school
boy, as it has often been discussed and
any lawyer in Miami could have,.cpr-
rectly informed the Metropolis editor. .
A man can go to Miami and make all
kinds of false charges against the BIap-
tist and Methodist churches and the
laws of Florida can not touch him.

The State of Florida has many able
newspaper men who in the pastfhave
fought valiantly for the best interests
of the State and the Democratic party.
That many did not see the danger of
party disruption more tha 'a year is
deplorable. They d ed no as a rule
understand the schemes back of pro-
fessional politicians-they werd- un-
willing to believe that the movement
was financed largely by men f'who
hated the Democratic party andwho
hated the South. When Dixie painted
out the dangers some declared that
Dixie was "unnecessarily alarmed."
However, Dixie's prophesies have come
true. True, in some cases it is a lack
of back-bone and a lack of Democracy
that results in the neglect of many ed-
L itors to sound a clarion cry. ,]
There are thousands in Florida who
need education along political lines
and these could be reached by at un-
afraid and unbought press--.a press
that will simply tell the truth about
the schemes of professional politicians
who are engaged in pulling the',pool
over the eyes of a large number of
unsophisticated people. .
All that is needed is for the lead-
ers of true Democracy to get aroused
and to furnish the people with a full
exposure of the plans of these profes-
sional politicians. :

Suppose the plans of the paid lectur-
ers fail and the American party col-
lapses before the meeting of the Demo-
cratic National Committee, in 1920--
then what ? Governor Catts instead of
returning from defeat will 'likely go
after Fletcher's scalp instead of Tram-
mell's. Leading Gardeens, however, -
insist that a new American party will
be organized and that Catts will be
nominated for President on the religi-
ous issue and with his German-A-meri-,
can war record he will rally millions
to him. They say if the Democrats .t.
Republicans win the national election


in 1920 then Catts will be the patriotic
candidate for Senator against Tram-
mell.

The sentiment in this country is
clearly against war. This is shown by
the fact that there has been no rush
to enlist, as was the case in the war
with Spain. The leading and controlled
newspapers are urging enlistment, but
the attitude of the people seems dis-
couraging to the plunderbund We
may fight after,all-by lending: bil-
lions of dollars to the Allies.

F. P. Conroy, a prominent business
man of Jacksonville,, of the fim of


Smith, Richardson & Conroy, the larg-
est meat and hotel supply house in
Florida, was a visitor in Palm Beach a
few days ago.
Speaking of his visit, The Post of
that city says:
"Mr. Conroy has been a resident of
Florida for twenty-five years, being
actively engaged in the provision busi-
ness during that time.

of the cattle industry of Florida, he
