four hours before Congress adjourned
to pay the night inspectors of the Nev
York and Baltimore custom houses, as
shown in the records of March 2d, page
2667, and March 8d, page 2725, 1887
which I file as Exhibit No. 172.
He has not only shown that he has no
the influence to pass a bill, but also tha
he has not the capacity to prepare one
which would have paid his State if it had
become a law.
Senator Call in his challenge thrusts
upon the attention of the public the
Norfolk bank scandal, and makes it th(
occasion for contemptible insinuations
against "some Florida people", thereby
not only justifying, but requiring ex-
posure of his remarkable false state-
This case is a suit by the receiver of a
Norfolk bank for $11,505.70 borrowed
money, represented by six notes given
during a period of 12 months. I refer to
the matter to show how unreliable Mr.
Call's published statements are.
Mhr Call in his challenge, which I have
filed as Exhibit No. 1, says: "Some Flor-
ida people interested in circulating
storl;s to my injury have probably, in
some way, influenced the brining-f"ol
this suit.,
I file as Exhibit No. 18 letter of receiv-
er of bank showing this charge to be
I]* Exhibit No. 1 Mr. Call says nothing
has been paid on the sewing machine
stock. I file" photographs of his notes
and certified record of papers in suit as
Exhibit No. 19, which shows this to be
untrue, as $15,964 had been paid on the
stock. Mr. Call says every sentence in
the book is a lie. Are these photographs
of his notes to the Norfolk bank a lie ?
They may be, for I believe they contain
a promise to pay.
Mr. Call says notes without interest
were given, which Exhibit No. 19 shows
to be.untrue, as all the notes bear inter-
est. These photographs say so; so does
the records.
Mr. Call aaserts: "No demand was
ever made for the money." The certi-
fied record of the suit, filed as Exhibit
No. 19, shows this to be untrue, and that
demand for payment was repeatedly
made and payment refused by Mr. Call.
Mr. Call, in evident exultation, men-
tions in Exhibit No. 1, that "six years
have expired and the statutes of limita-
tion have run to a bar."
If no demand was made, as the Sena-
tor positively asserts in Exhibit No. 1,
how would the statutes of limitation
commence to run on notes, shown in
Exhibit No. 19, to be demand notes?
The Senator caps the climax in his
next assertion, as follows: "I have
never received a cent of money, and
have never seen a certificate of the stock,
which was taken in the bank's name."
I file as Exhibit NX 19K photograph of
his i on wr on baok of his
note Let me read it: "Incloe to John
B. Whitehead with statement of 4t0ck."
Whitehead was president of the bank.
This unmasks his attempt to evade his
hypothecation of the stock as security for
his loan.
Mr. Call says in Exhibit No 1 that the
bank was to pay assessments due on the
stock. The stock was liable for only
$6,516 assessment, as shown by Exhibit
No. 19. He received from the bank
$11,W05.70, as shown by same exhibit.
Who received the difference of $4,989?
It is suggested that Mr. Call bh no.
Will recant that I have neerr touched
upon that point. I merely ask him to
reconcile his statements with the facts
as shown in the record.
I state in my pamphlet that service
had been withheld.
I Mr. Call's promise to pay this debt
having utterly failed, process has been
served within a few weeks.
Ask Mr. Call to-day to name the men
of "'highest consideration and large
means" who were connected with him in
this negotiation with the bank, as stated
in his fetter filed as Exhibit No. 1. He
won't do it,
Mr. Call reminds me of the old negro
who was caught stealing and when
brought before the church presented an
affidavit signed by every sister in
the church that he had not been seen
drunk for six months. When Senator
Call was charged with disreputable lob-
bying in connection with which a bill in
Senator Niblack's hands was mentioned
he presents a certificate that he was inti-
mate with Niblack. When charged with
the Norfolk bank scandal he proceeds to
prove that the Post Sewing Machine Co.
is an honest corporation. .
Mr. Call's effort to rob the negro of his
home, like his Norfolk bank scandal, has
been made a public matter by the Sena-
tor's own publication, and his insinua-
tions contained in his letter filed as Ex-
hibit No. 1.
In this case Senator Call endeavored to
obtain the land of a negro by making a
homestead entry after the negro had pre-
empted his home, upon which he had
lived over seven years.
I file as Exhibit No. 20 the decision of
Assistant Secretary Chandler, of July 1,
1889, in which is recited that Swain filed
pre-emption October 11, 1879, with regu-
lar papers. On December 1, 1880, W.
Call made homestead entry. The Land
Office sustained Swain, which was ap-
proved by Secretary Teller. Afterwards
acting Seeretary Joslyn reversed this de-
cision. May 21, 1888, Sprecial Agent Coff-
man reported Call's entry as fraudulent.
Call in his appeal, says the negro's lot,
which comprised less than half of Call's
entry, was all of the entry he cared to
have. The decision also recites that

Call's own evidence does not show any
threats or demonstrations of violence
from Swain, and that the only resistance
was from an old woman. It further re-
cites that Call commenced his contest
eighteen days before he made entry; so
that he knew all about the possession and
claim of Swain-when he made entry. It
further recites that Swain made no claim
to more than half of Call's entry, on the
other half of which he might -have estab-
lished his homestead.
In Exhibit No. I Mr. Call says his
kinsman rented land to Swain. Of
course, he could not rent this land,
which belonged to the government. He
will tell you about erroneous bounda-
ries, bqt the government does not say
that the bounqaries'are wrong, and Mr.
C4l,'s statement is absurd. HIs own act
in making a homestead entry shows that
it was government land, and I file as
Exhibit No. 21 the Land Register's cer-
tificate that it is surveyed United States
He said, in Exhibit No. 1, that Secre-
tary Teller finally decided the negro's
claim as invalid, but this is shown by
Exhibit No. 20 to be untrue. Acting
Secretary Joslyn did allow such a decis-
ion to stand for a time, which decision
Vas written after the salary qf the chief
Ia clerin m tle Land Department had
been raised by Mr. Call, in an unusual
way, frqm $2,250 to $2,5Q0, by an amend-

, ment to the appropriation bill, as shown
r in Exhibit No. 22.
a In exhibit No. 1 Mr., Call says that he
took the homestead as the "quickest
and least expensive method, and to avoid
the costly process of a survey to settle a
b boundary." (I give the Senator's own
words.) A boundary, observe, fixed by
the United States survey;,and disputed
by himself alone. He thereby admits
that he did not make entry for actual
settlement and cultivation, as his oath
required. 3 % fV
In the exact words of the Senator, he
took it "from obligationis of affection,
charity and friendship to those interested
in it." He further sayz,1 "I did not,
and do not, own the property, and my
only connection with it was, and is, such
as I have stated."
He took this homestead, as he further
states, "without any pen~nal interest in
the matter." t
Yet, to make this homestead entry, he
was compelled to swearai follows: "This
application is made, for the purpose of
actual settlement and cultivation: that
said entry is made for r&, ou'n ex,[usive
benefit, and not direft.ot]vr indirectly for
the benefit or use of an)<)ther person or
,.,ppsons whatsoever." tkhave read from
a cepy'or1Sei,)r Call's oath,
filed as Exhibit No. 21. v
Senator Call, in Exhibt No. 1, said the
negro, Swain, was the (July 15, 1889,)
in jail for murder. I i7 as Exhibit No.
23S the certificate of he sheriff that
Swain was released May:88, 1889, without
trial. Suppose, howeverfcthat Swain had
been guilty of murder and had been
hanged, who would hrve had the best
right to the land he $ad occupied so
long, and on which he fiad planted his
orange groye? Should 4t go to his wife
and children, or to our senator?
Suppose. further, ttkt his kinsmen
could have "ented' government land to
tlie negro, would this, any other pos-
sible circumstance' justify Mr. Call's
oath, shown to be falsI by his own ad-
mission? .
Senator Call will say it ii not perjury
to swear you have an in tention and then
change your mind. HO will ignore that
portion of his oath where he swears that
the entry was for his "exclusive bene-
fit," etc. *.
I will now consider.Mr. Call's failure
as a Senator, as demonstrated by the
bills and joint resolutiois introduced by
him, which when compared with those
that became laws, n1i startle every
Floridian who has noZinvestigated his
I file as Exhibit No. U4 the printed, list
of bills and joint resoliutionis, having cor-
rected errors of printer by adding sev-
eral bills omitted, a few figures printed
incorrectly and substituting Bill N6. 1431
in 50th Congress, which became a law,
for resolutI n No. A which failed.
Out of a total of 470 bills introduced' ]
only 15 bwaime lavs, in *looen years
In the 48th Congress Mr. Call "broke
his own record" for-i..efficincy, Ht
passed one of his 69 bills, TWp years'
work, with $10,000 salary with perquis-
ites, to relieve the political/ disabilities of i
A. W. Stark. t
Mr. Call in his explanation of this ,
record, in the Senate, June 2d last, ad- s
vances the astonishing theory that Sena- C
tors introduce bilis to "'form'a consensus 1
.0l9' li,'99 not tat ,.the pardc.
ularmp*oda hcall become a law,"

portant resolution was stricken out byo
unanimous vote, in the face of Mr. Call'
effort on the floor of the senate to pass it
The verbiage of the second resolution]
was changed and then passed the senate
The house did not reach a vote on it, m
amended, and thus it fell, and Mr. Call'E
statement in the senate, and publication
in the Record, is not true.
I file as Exhibit No. 40 journal of State
senate, pages 946 and 947, which show
these facts.
In Exhibit No. 30, page 2244, Mr. Cal:
says 500,000 acres of internal improve-
ment lands, of grant of 1845, were given
to the Pensacola and Atlantic Railroad,
which is unqualifiedly false, as shown
by certificate of the Commissioner oi
Agriculture, which I file as Exhibit No.
41. Everybody knows that these lands
were dedicated to bonded counties.
Mr. Call submitted a resolution March
31st, 1888, as shown in Congressional
Record, pages 2543 and 2544, which I
file as Exhibit 42, providing "that a
special committee of five Senators shall
be appointed who shall inquire whether
it is essential or advisable that suits shall
be brought by the United States to cancel
certain patents to the State of Florida."
I file as Exhibit 43 the Record, in
which Mr. Call, on January 14th, 1890,
says : "Nobody asks for any proceedings
to set aside and cancel any patents."
In his personal explanation in record
of June 3d, which I file as Exhibit No.
44, Mr. Call claims not to have aban-
doned his first position.
He pretends, in this explanation, to
quote my quotation of his own speech,
omitting, however, the essence of his re-
marks, when he interrupted a brother
Senator as follows:
"Mr. Call: I will ask the Senator (Mr.
Dolph) why he engages in that long dis-
cussion about the 11,000,000 acres con-
firmed under the act of 1857, when no-
body has ever claimed or asked that it
should be disturbed or interfered with.
Further, let me ask him "why he al-
ludes even beyond that to the 5,000,0000
acres patented, which nobody has ever
asked to be interfered with.,"
Why did the Senator omit this clause,
disclaiming any intention to cancel any
patents, when pretending to quote?
Because it convicts him of denying his
position of March 31, 1888.
In Exhibit No. 1 Senator Call refers to
worthless quit claim titles. I file, as Ex-
hibit No. 45 and Exhibit 46, certificates
from the Clerks of Jackson and Walton
counties that all the Pensacola and At-
antic Railroad deeds are warranty deeds.
I charge that Senator Call refused to
comply with the instructions of the Leg-
slature, which I file as Exhibit No. 47,
to support the bill to reimburse Florida
or the sale of swamp end overflowed
hands by the General Government, saying
t would tax the farmers and fruit grow-
Brs; a position silly in the extreme.
Mr. Call's efforts have not been to carry
ut the law but to attempt to prove that
he decisions of the Supreme Court of the
united States "are indefensible," as ex-
pressed in his speech of April 7, 1886, in
Exhibit No. 38, page 3553.
In his speech of February 28, 1890,
led as Exhibit No, 89, page 2241, he
oes off on a new track, claiming that
his decision "does not touch the Florida \
a s e "
Mr, Call introduced senate bill No. 871,
which I file as Exhibit No, 49, which I
commissioner Sparks (who despises a ,
corporation with his whole heart and t
oul) stigmatized in a communication to
secretary Lamar as "inconsistent, being f
alculated to increase a grant which it I
ag-JSS forfeit." I file Mr.

a the true representatives of American self-
s government-the- proud and independent
American which makes a people capable of
self-government, triumphant over fraud,
wrong and public demoralization. "I thanked
.you in my absence," he said, "who for me at
S ortMyers and everywhere throughout the
s State, placed the stamp of your private in-
a dignation and contempt upon the men who
would debase and degrade the homes and,
Sthe morals of the people. (Applause).
e What is the difference between this
person here, who stands as my assailant
and myself? Judge men by their surround-
ings and who they are and what they* repre-
- sent, I am a public servant. Whether I am
good or bad, I have no interests but those
, which are the interests of the people. How
stands my assailant here? What is he the
f representative of? (A voice-MonopolyI-
Does he represent any claim of ownership of
the soil of the State of Florida? Does he
* represent a corporation and corporate pow*-
er? Does he represent a power which taxes
your hard earnings and tales from you the
product of your soil in transportation rates?
is he, or am 1, the representative of the peo-
ple's wish? I, wilh not a penny; hea
stranger. My life has been spent here. He
Is the representative of corporations and
land grants. (Cheers.) "Oh, he'o tne npg-
ger's homestead!" (Applause.)
The senator then made his previously pub-
lished statement with regard to the charge of
attempting to take Swaim's home away from
him, to homesteading .the land, and it was
plain t6 be seen that the audience was fully
in sympathy with him and accepted his ex-
planation as amply satisfactory. The charge,
he declared, came from S. I. Wailes. He
would not charge Mr. Chipley with writing
that pamphlet. It was as poor in quality as
In truth and language. According to it he
was the greatest of liars and fools, and
Chipiey the embodiment of perfect wisdom.
"Behold him, look upon him!" (Yells) "A
pmey woods boy could do better than the
maner of that pamphlet-better in sense,
better in language and better in grammar,
or, if not, his teacher would whip hU
He declared that it was all stuff about that
old negro. "Chipley was a lawyer. (Look
at his exhibit) gut he did not know enough
law to state a fact when he tried."
I The homestead charge was a simple, idle
stupidity. He would rather give to one in
want than to take from him. "This man,"
said Senator Call, "has the honor and glory
of building a railroad and of proving Sena-
tor Call a fool, a knave, and of stealing a ne-
gro's home, while this noble example of pub-
lic and private purity, this public benefactor
thatbuildsrailroads and obtains a title to
480,000 acres of land grant made a fortune
out of it.

in his pocket, looking Inglis, Smith, Van
and other good Democrats square in the
eye, talked about his sacrifices for the
party. Let Mr. Call deny this, and I will
paralyze him with my proof. [This was
read in rejoinder.-ED.]
In 1886, Mr. Call was charged with
keeping R. M. Call on the rolls of the
Senate as his secretary at $6 per day,
though-he did not spend one month in
twelve in Washington.
Mr. R. M. Call (for whom I have per-
fect respect), explained, in perfect good
faith as I believe, that he was on the
rolls during January through "inadvert-
ence," and he therefore, signed the roll
for December and January, but the
salary attached to the office was paid to
the man who did the work. I file Mr.
Call's letter as Exhibit 30%. Let me
Mr. R. M. Call says: "I write this
statement for the reason that any one
reading the article would immediately
conclude that my name was still carried
on the senate rolls after the January
inadvertence, mind you, and that either
Senator Call or himself was drawing the
$6 per day."
But listen to the sequel. On the 10th
of March, following, W. P. Canaday,
sergeant of arms of the senate, in a re,
port, made in compliance with a resolu-
tion of March 4th, requiring each senator
to report on the following Monday the
name of his private secretary, reported
R. M. Call's name as Senator Call's sec-
retary. I file this report as Exhibit No.
This was March 10th, 1886. Mr. R. M.
Call explained the January "inadvert-
ence" on December 29th, 1886, over nine
months later. Therefore, if Mr. R. M.
Call knew that he was on the rolls in
March, he would have referred to the
fact in his explanation in December, in- ,
stead of making a special disclaimer on
this very point, i
I file as Exhibit No. 32 the annual re- *
port of Hon. Anson G. McCook, secretary
of the United States Senate, which shows ]
that R. M. Call was paid as Senator Call's
clerk not only in December and January, 0
but also for February and a portion of
March. "
Who signed the rolls for February and 1
March of 1886? Mr, R. M,, Calf 4e
nies it. I
On the 7th of April, 1886 (see pages
3549 to 3551 of record, of April 15th) v
which I file as Exhibit No. 38, Senator b
Call charges that the state sold "four f
million acres of land, netting one million 0
dollars;" which amount was paid on the 1
Florida railroad indebtedness, together
with the proceeds of "nine hundred c
thousand acres of school lands ordered is
sold by Mr. Justice Woods," and the pro- t
ceeds misapplied to the indebtedness of f
the same railroad. He will tell you he; 1
ment the school fund during the war, it
but that statement will not be true. e
U regard to the 900,000 acres of school
lands, Ifile as Exhibit No. 84 the Com- o
missioner of Agriculture's certificate that ti
the State never had but 908,503 acres of:
school lands, and that hW department P
stUi holds of these, lands 415,672 acres,
I also file as Exhibit No, 85 report of
State Treasurer for 1890, which shows n
that he holds for the school fund $555,- g
684.25, nearly all being from the sale of tt
school lands. Yet, Senator Call says all ct
of these lands were sold and proceeds
paid upon -the Florida railroad, and he w
said every sentence in my pamphlet C
was a falsehood.- c
I also file,, as Exhibit No. 36, Treasurer s8
L'Engle's report for 1881 and 1882 which S(
the million dollarswrceived cs

confine myself to his publiH record, and
to those transactions which he has made
public by his own publications, coupled
with insinuations against others, thereby
not only justifying, but actually requir-
ing, their discussion.
Before considering Mr. Call's blunders
and bad faith in connection with the
Indian war claim, let me call your atten-
tion to the fact that this claim, amount-
ing to a very large sum, has been due
Florida during all of Mr. Call's eleven
years' service in the senate, and I ask,
what has he done about it? Why try a
man for six years more, after eleven
years' failure?
Mr. Call was willing to settle the
State's claim for $92,000, after canceling
the indebtedness of the State to the gen-
jeral government, as shown in his inter-
4View as published in the Florida Herald,
of Jacksonville, of March 80th, 1887,
which I file as Exhibit No. 8.
Since then, the Secretary of the Treas-
ury has audited the account, and' says
Florida's claim should be over half a
million, a balance about which Mr. Call
seemed ignorant, after his long service
,ii the senate". This, audit I file as'Ex-
"hibit N6 9. '.
In the famous Herald interview the
following is found: Let me read:
Question (by reporter): "How could it
be hoped, then, to pass a bill giving in-
terest to a Southern State ? "
Answer (by Mr. Call): "That is a ques-
tion that Wailes's associates must an-
swer. They were fully advised before
they refused the Hampton bill of the
danger of opening this question.
Mr.:Call stated in the Herald interview
that Mr. Dougherty asked him to ask
Senator Spooner to refer the bill which
passed the House-to. Senator Jones, of
Arkansas. I file, as Exhibit No. 9k, Mr.
]Dougherty's letter, in which Mr. Dough-
erty says this is not true, and that Sen-
ator Call did not attend .the meeting of
the Senate committee when the bill was
In this same interview Mr. Call says
the Hampton bill would pay $94,000 cash.
An, error of $2,000. Quite a small error
for' the Senator.
M r. Call, as usual, was: ignorant of the
payment by the United States of interest
on money advanced in the war of 1812,
and other wars, as shown in the statutes
at large, given in Exhibit No. 10, which
I hold in my hand.
The first of Mr. Call's four bills on the
Indian war claim matter, to which I de-
sire to refer, was introduced December
10, 1885, known as Senate bill No. 467.
which I file as Exhibit No. 11. Here it
is. Let me re:d:
It provides for the payment by the
United States direct, not thrmogh the
State authorities, of all soldiers "mus-
tered" into the United States service who
have 'not" received their pay., The ig-
norance of the Senator is apllng. Had
4he ops been ."mustered into 'the
UhitedlBttes service" they would havs
been paid at the time the service was per-
Nor was the "muster" condition the
only blunder.
, Mr. Call provided in this bill for the
payment only of those soldiers who had
"not" been paid, while Florida's claim
waq for indemnity for those already paid
by the State.
. Governor Perry at once saw the mis-
take in Senate Bill 467, and he induced
,-M-M- i 4 .t o V ".j hill
and introduce the second bill, to whktcB1
I desire to refer.
This bill No. 1298, which I file as Ex-
hibit No. 12, provided for the payment
to the State what was due for money al-
ready paid out by the State, including
interest thereon.
Senator Call did introduce this bill,
explaining, however, that it was done by
the request of Governor Perry, Florida s
Democratic executive, and then he killed
it by. his reflections on the Democratic
administrations of his own State, as
shown in record of January 80, 1886,
page 928, which I file as Exhibit No. 13.
Let me read. Mr. Call said: "I think
a duty is presented by this case for the
Senate and Congress to vindicate them-
selves by some public expression in re-
gard to such a transaction."
This Senate Bill No. 1298, although
Mr. Dougherty pamed at similar bill in
the house, was allowed by Mr. Call to be
indefinitely postponed (see record March
38,1886, page 1977), which I file as Ex-
hibit No. 14, without any recorded op-
position on his part.
"'But listen On the same day, the
'29th of January, 1886, on which he in-
troduced No. 1298, Mr. Call introduced
another bill, without request, being Sen-
ate Bill No. 1294, which I file as Exhibit
No. 15.
Can you understand, my fellow
countrymen, if he was sincere in his
pledge to support Gov. Perry's bill (No.
1298), why, within the same hour, he
would introduce bill No. 1294 ?
If Governor Pery's bill had passed
Florida would have been paid. H- Mr.
Call's bill, No. 1294, had become a law,
not a dollar would have gone to Florida.
Let me read: ,That the claims of sol-
diers who have not received their pay
shall be audited and paid."
His bill made no provision for the debt
of over half a million dollars due Florida
as indemnity for the payment to the sol-
diers whom the .State had already paid;
but, you will see, provides only for
soldiers "who have not received their

1294, had passed,
When the present Congress convened,
Mr; Call introduced a bill, known as
Senate Bill No. 8, which I file as Exhibit

No. 16, providing for the payment (let
me read from the bill), "of the amount
expended by the State of Florida in sup-
pression of Indian hostilities, as directed
by the Secretary of War."
As the Secretary of War never "di-
rected" anything whatever, this fourth
bill, if it passes, will not pay a cent to
the State of Florida.
Therefore, Mr. Pasco introduced, later,
another bill, No. 3044, to pay Florida its
indemnity claim, which I have here, and
file as Exhibit No. 17. I submit if Mr.
Call's bill (No. 8) was sufficient, that Mr.
Pasco's was unnecessary. But Mr. Pas-
co's was necessary, and Mr. Call's was
There may be a small sum due, but Mr.
Call's talk about paying unpaid soldiers
by Congress is am bosh, for the State can-
not ask indemnity of the General Gov-
erument until the State h.s, first paid the
soldiers and submitted to the Government
evidences of payment.
It is still greater nonsense for him to
talk about improper commissions to
agents. The money will be paid by the
Government into the State treasury, and
no power can pay it out except the ac-
tion of the Legislature.
While the Indian war claim bill was
pp the calendar Mr. Call failed to call it
pup, but ,edeavored in the ast hours of
the session to bring up a Senate billN
which, of course, pould never reach the
House, being pased, \f at all, twenty-

of course, cut me off from his record,

Cal then created a sensation by reading the
following letter :-
"NEw YORi, November 5,1889.-Noticing

Chipley and yourself; wherein he sought to
arraign you before the public,, permit me to
make known to you a transaction of Mr.
Chipley s which, if he will not avail himself
of the plea of limitation, would consign him
to a penitentiary. In 1872 W. A. McDougall
was president and W. D. Chipley was secre-
tary of the North and South Railroad com-
pany of Georgia, running from Columbus.
By their charter they were authorized to issue
240 bonds first mortgage on every ,twenty
miles of road completed the bonds and coupon
bonds to be of $1,000 each, and by the char-
ter only one bond, of each kind was to be is-

these bonds as every twenty miles was com-
pleted. In May, 1872, they issued 240 bonds

I have not time now.
When the senate committee on public
lands met to consider the resolution
which recited that Senator Call alleged
that he was satisfied "that illegal and
fraudulent conveyances of public lands
had been made in there State," Mr. Call
appeared and said he referred to swamp
and overflowed lands only. (See senate
report 2288, 50th congress, first session,
which I file as Exhibit No. 25.)
Under Republican rule, only 91,167
acres were patented, as shown by certifi-
cate of Commissioner of Agriculture,
which I file as Exhibit No. 26. As four
Democratic administrations have been
intrusted with these lands, amounting
to several million acres, Mr., Call's re-
flection was upon the chosen officials of
the party which had honored him, being
only one of many similar attacks by the
Senator in the attitude he has assumed,
of Call vs. the State.
Mr. Call has asserted fifteen times, as
shown in Exhibit which I file as No. 27,
that the internal improvement act of Flor-
ida had been repealed by Ivarious acts of
the legislature", and in other language
was a '"dead letter upon tHestatute books
of Florida." Yet, if tis is true, my fellow-
countrymen, you have witnessed the
most remarkable usurpation of authori-
ty and violation of law on the part of
Florida's Democratic legislatures, and
Governors Drew, Bloxham, Perry and
Fleming and their cabinets, who daily
exercised their functions under this law.
Governor Fleming does to-day. ALL
It is difficult to comprehend fully
the enormity of this false statement.
Before the same committee, in his ef-
fort to have the swamp and overflowed
lands taken from his own State, he stated
that nineteen-twentieths of the area of
the State of Florida is as high and dry as
the top of the capitol. (See page 13 on
Exhibit No. 25.)
As the top of the capitol at' Washing-
ton is higher than any land in Florida,
except two hills, Mr. Call's reckless state-
ment is made manifest.
On FebrnTry 1, 1888, Mr. Call, referring
to the grant to Florida to construct a rail-
road from Jacksonville to Pensacola, as-
serted in his place in the Senate (page 867
of bound volume of record, which I file
as Exhibit No. 27y) that" 'there was never
an acre certified. There was no reserva-
tion made under the authority of the State
The Governor so declares, anp so notifies
the Interior Department in 1859."
These lands were certified in 1860, and
I file, as Exhibit No. 28, the report of the
Commissioner of-the General Land Office,
showing, on page 41, 1,275,579 acres cer-
tified to the State for this road.
It is sometimes said that Mr. Call has
devoted a great deal of time to the ser-
vice of the party. During my six years'
service on the state Committee he never
contributed a dollar to its treasury, as
shown by 9, statement of the Treasurer,
which I file as Exhibit No. 29.,
I desire to say that the Treasurer's re-
port was not sent to me for use here. I
got it through my connection with the
Let me recite a specimen of his patriot-
ism. Along in the early years of the sev-
enties, during the darkest days of Flor-
ida's history, when the State needed every
loyal son, Mr. Call was requested to speak
ht Madison. He replied that he would
do so for fifty dollars. This amount was
paid him, and with the dollars jingling

road, over nine hundred thousand was
paid on the Pensacola and Georgia rail-
road indebtedness.
It was a railroad which Senator Call
and others bought, and whose land grant
Mr. Call claimed on page 27 in his bill in
chancery, to which he swore and which
I file as Exhibit No. 364.
It was the railroad upon which Mr.
Call and others made payment with a
bogus check, which was never paid, as
shown by record in the Schutte suit,
pages 560, 561 and 819, which I file as
Exhibit No. 36Y4.
It was the railroad which Littlefield
manipulated, as Mr. Call stated in his
bill in chancery, "under a charter fraud-
ulently altered for corrupt purposes, for-
bidden by public policy, destructive of
industrial interests and hurtful to public
morals." (See pages 32 and 34.)
It was the railroad upon which Mr.
Call, after making such grave charges,
compromised the "rights of the State
and the people," and for his treachery
received $8,000, less five per cent, See
pages M1,46, 65, 68, book second of record
of suit in chancery of SAnderson vs.
L'Engle et al., which I file as Exhibit No.
I charge that Senator Call ordered one
thousand resolutions for his use in the
lobby which he tried to make the State
pay for, and failed to pay for himself.
I charge that at one time he was
threatened with expulsion from the
Senate Chamber for disreputable meth-
ods in the lobby.
Col. Whitfield Walker told me that
Senator Call held up his confirmation for
seven months because he would not sub-
mit to dictation in the appointment of
his subordinates.
Hon. J. E. Hartridge told me Mr. Call
caused his failure to be confirmed.
Mr. Call's high sense of honor was il-
lustrated in his speech at Pensacola,
when he read a letter purporting to be to
the editor of the Times-Union, which
that paper had never published and-of
which its editor did not know that Mr.
Call had a copy of, as shown by C. E.
Merrill's letter, which I file as Exhibit
No. 37.
The letter was from a man named Hill,
who charged me with conspiring to de-
fame Mr. Call. I never saw Hill in my
life. [lowder]. I never saw Hill in my
life, so help me God.
I file as Exhibit No. 38 a letter (ad-
dressed to an acquaintance, not to my-
self) from Hill in which he proposes, for
$1,000, "to disgrace Senator Call in the
senate and send him to. the penitentiary
if presented to the grand jury."
This offer was indignantly declined
and would not be mentioned now, after
four years' silence, but for this letter
from the same fellow, used by Mr. Call.
In the Congressional Record of March
13, 1890, page 22399 which I file as Ex-
hibit No. 39, is a speech of our Senator
in which he said: "Mr. President: Here
is a joint resolution of the
Legislature of Florida, which did not be-
come a law, but which received a vote
of the majority of both houses of the
legislature, and is an expression on the
part of the people of that State and their
legislature, of the facts in regard to this
matter." *
In the appendix of the Senator's speech
is found printed in extenso, the some-
what famous "House Joint Resolution
No. 27 This resolution passed the.
house, i may say, by default; it went to
the senate, where the flrst and most iin-

senate to desire a report on a land bill,.
Senators Morgan and .Walthal! exposed,
his duplicity by stating that the report
was withheld at Mr. Call's own request.
I file as Exhibit, No. 51 Record of Feb-
ruary 1, 1887, giving these facts.
. I charge deception in Mr. Call's claim
that all settlers on railroad lands are in-
debted to him for their homes, as it is
not true in any sense. It is true that the
Florida railroad waived its claim to over
80,000 acres, occupied by 941 settlers, as
shown in senate executive document No.
91; 1st session, 48th congress, page 76,
which I file as Exhibit N& 52,
Never having passed a single word of
law on the, land service, of eleven years
in congress, he has no more power to aid
settlers than any other man,
Mr. Call in his speeches of Januaryd5th
and February 28th, last, (page 2243 of
appendix to record), which I file as Ex-
hibit No. 39, tells of Mr. Geo. F. Bullard.
He asserts in his speech that "this young
man with his little family of two or
three children, who had labored all his
life for this competency, is met with a
demand and threats of a suit for $4,000
* and his life threatened With
cloud and gloom for years."
The only mention of $4,000 in Bullard's
letter, as published by Mr. Call as part
of his speech, as shown in Exhibit No.
39, is as follows: "The Florida Railway
and Navigation Company now charge
me $800 for it, and having sold it and it
having been improved to the amount of
$4,000,I presume there is no alternative
but to pay the amount or defend my
. Mr. Call could not auote Mr. Bullard's
letter truthfully. This is a fair specimen
of Mr. Call's outrages. /
I Mie, as Exhibit No. 55, the certificate
of the clerk of Putnam county, which
shows that the Tropical Land Company,
which handled the railroad lands sold by
Bullard, deeded'to Mrs. Amanda Pen-
nington forty acres (with the $4,0001 im-
provements) for $200-the government
being due her $100, improperly received,
which makes the net cost $10W r
Mr. Call mentions in one of his speeches
the case of a man in Western Florida,
carefully concealing his name. The Pen-
sacola and Atlantic Railroad has never
had a contest with a settler.
I filed as Exhibit No, 17% the record of
March 3,1887, in which Mr, Dawes says
in the Senate, '"I observe that the navy
yard at Pensacola seems to be dismantled
entirely by that amendment."
Mr. Hale: "The appropriations for
clerical force in the navy yard at Pensa-
cola were stricken out at the request of
the Senator from Florida (Mr. Call).
* He states that under present
management all of these places in Flor-
ida have been filled by Northern parties
Our senator objected to Northern peo-
ple being sent down to the Pensacola
yard, and not having sufficient influence
with Mr. Cleveland's administration to
alter the appointments, he "dismantled
the yard,"
But the6 facts disclose that only one of
these employees had been in position less
than five years, the rest over ten years,
as shown in Exhibit No. 56.

OLIS publishes Senator Call's speech as taken
from his organ, the Times-Union, this morn-

Mr. Call further stated that he took the
liberty to write to the lawyer to whom he
was referred; that the lawyer was a mem-
ber of the great and distinguished law firm ,
of Evarts, Choate & Friedman '(than
which no firm stands higher for integrity
and ability), who replied tohim, stating that
the facts relating to Schaeffer's case were
substantially the same as his statement and -
he stated in conclusion: "This appeared to
me at the time to be a very clear 'case of
fraudulent substitution of bonds" "
"'This is not Mr. Hill, the perjured slan ,
derer, threatening to send me tothe pemisen-
tiary," said Senator CaII. "I relate that to
you to show you that it won't do for people
who live in glasshouses to throw stones. This
is the record I offer to you and further state
that no transaction of my life has ever 6&
curred that I am not able to vindicate, and to
prove before the~whole world to be in every
respect fair, honorable, just and true."-
Touching upon his"Washington house, Sen-"
ator Call said that he did not own a houne
nor a piece, nor,a brick, nor a stone of one,
but his little wife, to whom he paid a touch-
ing tribute, had had a little piece of property
in Jacksonville coming to her in a proper
way, and upon this she-had borrowed money
in Jacksonville of one who had money to lend
to make the first payment. There it stands
with a mortgage on it. This Washington '
house is not a palace, but a modest dwelling.
There it stands-the mortgage still on it, and
it leases me only a home." The Cipley
pamphlet, Senator Call said, was a beautiful
and truthful monument of the man hired to
write it. They had exhibited in connection
with its charges a photograph of that house,
showing that it was -three houses instead of
one. "Old Lem Owens, ray Cracker friend,
when he saw thiS beautiful picture in.
this book-and I think they sent one *
to every Senator of the United States (a voice
-I have half a dozen.) (Another voice- '
And I, Senator, have one more than I want.) .
-To show what a desperate fool the miu /
has found out that I am-old Le& says: '
"Has Wilk got three houses there!', I thank "
God, I am a poor man, but it Is honest
poverty and I said to old Lem: "But every
Cracker will have a good shelter over him
when he goes to Washington, in that little
home; not like the grasping robber of the land

Lne people's friend, who interposes his whole
ife against the spoilation of the great pub-
lic domain, as I charge this man with. But
This house, honestly obtained by a. poor and,
honest mnn, has been, as it is and will be,
the shelter of every honest piney wood&
cracker and his wife and daughter, whoac-
cepts its hospitality." \-' .
Referring to the Hartridge confirmation
matter, the Senator read a letter from Sena-
tor Quay, the Republicau, upon whose vote
Hartndge depended for confirmation, saying
that Senator Call had dohe all that a Senator
could honorably do to secure the desired, re-
sult; and he also read letters from Senators
Pugh and George to the same effect.
Among other things said in connection with
charges concerning the Post Combination
Sewing Machine, the Senator read a letter of
Senator M. C. Butler, which declared that
Call's connection with that company, was en-
tirely honorable, and he would place the
word of that gallant one-legged Confederate

Those of our citizens who intend going
away to summer resorts during the season
should have THE METROPOLIS mailed to them.
They can thus know what is going on at
home during their absence. THE METROPO-
LIS prints all the local news.

This Date in History-July 2,
W&6-The British occupied Staten Island, re-en-
forced by Sir Henry Clinton and an English
fleet under Lord Admiral Howe.
27-76-Resolution of Richard Henry Lee, of Vir
ginla, declaring that the colonies are forever
absolved from all allegiance to Great Britain,
adopted by the Continental congress.
177 -Ticonderoga invested by Burgoyne. It was
garrisoned by 3,0_0 Americans, who evacuated
during the night.
1800--Ireland united to Great Britain by act of
1848-Death of Dr. Hahnemann, originator of
homeopathy, aged 78.
1868--Continuation of the battle of Gettysburg.
1864--Gen. Jose-h E. Johnston, being flanked by
Sherman, abandons Kennesaw.
187B-Eud of trial of Tilton vs. Henry Ward
Beecher; jury disagreed.
1881-President Garfield shot by Charles J. Gul-
teau; two balls entered his body; died Sept
19 Guitea,- hanged June 30. 18S2

To-day three years ago THE METROPOLIS
was started by Carter & Russell, the present
proprietors, in a modest little way in the
upper story of a small brick building on
Laura Street, next to 0. L. Keane's establish-
ment. Three small cramped rooms held the
press, the engine, the printers, the editorial
staff and the business office. Five hundred
subscribers was the grand total of ouc readers
and we had hard work to secure that number
and with a small, very small, advertising pat-
ronage we started out on the battle of life re-
lying on our industry and fair dealing to win.
And we have won. From that modest
start we have built up a circulation in this

city many times larger than that of any other
paper published in Jacksonville. We have
now by all odds the best equipped daily news-
paper in the State, and everything is paid for.
We have discarded our old press for the most
rapid printing press in Florida. We have
a new boiler and engine, new, type and we
now enjoy a large and constantly increasing
advertising patronage,, the public of Jack-
sonville knowing that THE METROPOLIS goes
into nearly every house in the city where the
inmates can read and appreciate it as an ad-
vertising~medium as well as a chronicler of
-" ." _+,,a ..
lBe-use we have tried to do what was right.
-We have not. let cliques or rings control us.
l "We have always advocated measures to bene-
fit the people. We have not sought political
advancement. In short, we have run a news-
paper and endeavored to give the people of
this city the local news principally, believing
that was what they wanted, and our thous-
ands of readers to-day testify to ns that we
have pleased them.
We were immensly gratified yesterday by
hearing the highest compliments paid our,
new fast press by the visiting editors, who'
looked on with amazement at its perfect me-
chanism and its wonderful speed, as the
white papers came rolling off printed and
ready for reading. But although we are
pro0pering, we are not unmindful of the fact
that singly and collectively we owe our suc
cem to our subscribers, and we shall ever laI
bor to advance their interests and that of bur
city, believing that to be the only course that
will ultimately benefit both them and us.

The State Press Association closed its ad-
joured session of two days in; this city last
evening, and most of the member* left the
Scity, a portion going to Chattanooga, as the
jguestsof the East Tennessee, Virginia and
Georgia railroad, and others returning home.
The adoption of the by-laws and ratification
-i0f the constitution, framed since the regular
+ May meeting, were the primelobjects of Lthe
meeting here, which were accomplished. It
is theearnest hope of all that good to the
craft may come from this meeting, and prove
a blessing to all in a business point of view.
_ The editors and publishers in Florida must
live closer together if they expect to prosper
and command the respect due them, and now
is a good time to begin to get together and
unite for the mutual benefit of the fraternity.
The meeting was harmonious and full of
interest to those engaged in the printing and
':. ''publishing business. All stood upon a, com-
.mon level with perfect freedom to express

... himself upon any and all subjects, without re-
rserve. No bitterness was exhibited either in
,. discussion or social mingling, and we are per.

suaded to believe that all were better friends
at the separation last evening than at the first
convening Monday.
The chief end desired by the local member-
ship was that all visitors might spend a pleas-
ant and profitable season here and. carry
:, away with them pleasant recollections of city
and people. If any went away dissatisfied it
is yet unknown, and if there was one no one
regrets it more than THE METROPOLIS. At
the next annual meeting we hope to see the
good results of the meeting here his week
developed in a closer union and a stronger
friendship existing between us all.

+ Senator Call's Special organ in this city in
i, its usual exulting, one-sided style comes out
this morning, with flaming head lines, au-

nouneing "Call on top" at the joint discussion
of Call and Chipley at Arcadia yesterday,
but a number of gentlemen, who came into
Jacksonville to-day from Arcadia tell quite
another story and declare the Senator
the ,worst used up man to-day
in Florida. He, it is said, was
left by Col. Chipley on the bottom yesterday,

Mr. Van Pelt, editor of the Craig, Mo.,

to give him a dose of something for cholera
morbus and looseness of the bowels. He says:
"I felt so much better the next morning that
I concluded to call on the physician and get
him to fix me up a supply of the medicine. I
was surprised when he handed me a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy. He said he prescribed it regularly
in his practice and said he found it the best
he could get or prepare. I can testify to its
efficiency in my case at all events." For sale

Remarkable Rescue.
Mrs. Michael Curtain, Plainfield, Ill.,
makes the statement that she caught cold,
which settled on her lungs; she was treated
for a month by her family physician, but
grew worse. He told her she was a hopeless
victim of consumption and taat no medicine
could cure her. Her druggist suggested Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consumption; she
bought a blyttle and to her delight found her
self benefitted fror first dose. She continued
its use and after taking ten bottles, foand
herself sound and well, now does her own
housework and is as well as she ever was.

A Disfigured Countenance.
Many people who would scarcely notice an
armless or legless man will instantly detect
and remark on any blemish of the human face,
and dive into all sorts of speculations as to its
cause and attendant circumstances. If you
doubt this assertion become possessed of a dis-
colored optic and note how much attention it
will invite. A black eye is generally avoid-
ble, but blotches, pimples and other
scrofulous and eruptive marks steal upon us
without warning, and are frequently the first
intimation of the fact that our blood is going
wrong. A prompt and systematic use of P. P.
P. (ckly Ash, Poke Root and Potassium)
will purify the blood, cleanse the skin and
give back to the face nature's familiar, ruddy
ags of health. Get it of your druggist Geo.

Mr. Call ,mentious my connection with an
alleged over issue of N. & S. railroad bonds.
I had an intimation of his attack through a
letter of his friend Marcotte in a newspaper.
I will read the following. Mr. Blanchard is
a prominent citizen of Columbus, Ga., and
Mr. 8mith is ex-governor of Georgia:
COLUMBUS, Ga., June 23d, 1890.
I hereby certify that I was a director of
the North and South railroad,and afterwards
its president; and that I am familiar with the
issue of bonds made by said railroad. The
first two hundred and forty of one thousand
dollars each, were sent to New York for exe-
cution, and placed in the hands of one of the
trustees. That one, Schoeffer, proposed to
place the entire issue of $1,500,000,
and did make a bid, or proposal of sale,
but the condition of the sale was that if his
proposal was not accepted within ten days
the transaction was to be null and void
Schaeffer's bid was rejected, and he was so
notified; nevertheless, Schaeffer commenced
suit against the railroad for seventy-five
thousand dollars, being his expected commis-
sion on the entire amount of a million and a
half bonds. Hoping, no doubt, to force the
road to a compromise, he attached the bonds.
These bonds were to be indorsed by the State
of Georgia, and, as time was important, in-
stead of awaiting the result of the black-
mailing suit, the company decided to leave
the unexecuted bonds in the hands of the
trustees, and ordered two hundred and forty
more executed as advised by the company's
attorney. W. D. Chipley had nothing to do
with this transaction, save to sign the same
as secretary, as directed by the board of di-
rectors. This last issue was indorsed by
Governor Smith, and the greater portion of
them paid to the contractors, Grant & Alex-
ander, of Atlanta, and the remainder going
to other creditors of the company, Chipley
having nothing whatever to do with them, as
stated heretofore, except as instructed by the
president and directors.,,
Signed in the presence of A. 0. Blachmar,
Notary Public.
COLUMBUS, GA., June 24, 1890.
Hon. W. D. Chipley:
DEAR SIR: I am requested to make a
statement in reference- to the endorsement of
certain bonds of the North, and South rail-
road company, of Georgia, by me while ex-
ecutive of this State. The amount of bonds
so endorsed was $240,000.00 on completion of
the first twenty miles of the road. None
others were endorsed by me for this road, and
I am quite sure there were no such endorse-
ments made by my successor in office, as the
bonds and endorsements made by me were
called in and bonds of the State issued there-
for during his term of office.
Very respectfully, J. M. SMITH.
P. S.-I do not remember that you had any
connection with the endorsements above re-
ferred, which I did make: J. M. S.
L ral talks about the Reddick case. It
.... was a complaint against the State, but I
marched side by side.pn Friday with Reddick
at the funeral of a Confederate comrade, and
his last words were that he relied upon me.
The Senator says my book will be a monu-
ment to me. Indeed it will when it retires
him from the United States Senate.
Mr. Call proceeds to misstate the land grant
S.' of the P. *' A. railroad knowingly and ma-
i ltdously. He repeats his' charge, that I am
interested personally in these land grants be
cause I am an official of a company to which
these lands belong and from whom I .would
have to purchase if I wanted a single
acre, just as other people do, the lands being
held by trustees.
Mr. Call, unable to refute these charges,
couples my acts with those of Mr. S. I.
Wailes, who has never had any connection,
official or otherwise, with the P. &. A. rail-
,road, intending thereby to -confuse and mis-
.,... lead the people he is endeavoring to deceive.
He said in the Senate of the United State
that every sentence in my pamphlet was
:: falsa; yet he says later the "extracts he
prints is true," who speaks falsely then.
1 In the matter of the negro homestead, he
. .... tplains that his oath was simply that he had
an intention to live on it and that he had a
'. right to altar his mind.
..:. I wave all this and direct your attention
... 'to the latter part of the oath, which recites
(I have a certified copy of Mr. Call's oath
here) as follows: "that said entry is made for
Ln 'y own'exclusive benefit, and not directly
Sor indirectly for the benefit or use of any
other person or persons whatsoever." This
+ Was either L r ue or false/ No
changilg of intention about it. Yet Mr.
Call tattes In his St. Augustine letter and in
:t+e Senate that 'he made "entry: as a means
of settling a survey fixed (please remember
... by the-United States.) Also firm obligations"
of affection, charity and friendship to
... there and that he had no personal Interest
in the matter., tf these statements of the
SSenator are true then+ his oath is false. He
gavee: aa an additional reason that the the
,negroes land separated his kinsmaa'sl proper-
....'. ty. into two parts ... ,. .
,He disputes the plat I published although
etified by the {County Surveyor, and says
1 tihe United States approved survey should be
0 cnsulted. This I how present, showing
S that the negros land Is nearly a mile from
the grant held by his kinsmen. I have in
my' hand a bill of complaint sworn to by
...Mr. Call in which the tract; is described as
; -the ,Moses E. Levy grant, just as is shown on
tis _United Srates map certified to by~the
'' United States Surveyor General andl ac-

ceptsd by everybody except the Senator
and an anauoymous newspaper correspon-
-dent whom he quotes in support of his plosi-
tion. .
He says that I have been making, money
0ut-of the homes of the people, which he
", cannot prove, as shown by the absence of a
single contest, in western Florida with' the
railroad, but I have proven by document-
ary evidence his effort to rob an ignorant
< negro of his home, which he failed to do
with all of his Senatorial influence:
Mr. Dougherty asked that the bill be re-
ferred to Mr. Janes, which Mr. D's letter filed
denies and disproves.
New mark the fact that he utterly ignores
my charge which I prove by the bills in my
hand, that all of his four bills except the one
furnished by Governor Perry, had they be-
come laws would not have paid tha State a
cent, so bunglingly were they drawn by Mr.
* CalL Consider the facts on this point as set
forth in my first remarks and my book.
Mr. Call says the foundation of the State's
claim is that the troops were ordered mus-
tered in. But his bill did not say "ordered
mustered," but "mustered." He says one of
the bills referred to was for soldiers not
r paid, but 1 show by the bills themselves
that two read "not paid." When the money
is paid to the State it will go to
the State Treasurer and the Legislature will
be competent to protect the State against all
improper disbursements.
I have set forth the Littlefield boodle mat-
ter with great exactness.
Mr. Cael poses as the savior of the people
and the counties on the line of the old J., P.
& M. railroad. To protect great interests in
the State against Swepson and Littlefield,
who Mr. Call charges in his bill of chancery
proceedings were manipulating the road "un-
der a charter fraudulently altered for cor
rupt purposes, forbidden by public policy,
destructive of industrial interests and hurt-
ful to public morals." Mr. Call brought his
bill. Had Mr. Call carried his suit to a ter-
mination the twenty years blight on North
Florida would have Leen averted, as shown
in a subsequent decision of the Supreme

which I have here. Now listen to Mr.
Call's defence: "The record of this
suit is in the courts. It was car-
ried to the Supreme Court of the State,
and decided against us." This is not true, as
shown by the Thirteenth Florida Suvreme
Court Reports, which I have here. In this
case the lower court granted an injunction
and appointed a receiver. The railroad ap-
pealed to the Supreme Court, which Court set
aside the order, upon the ground that the
Circuit Court of Duval county had no juris-
diction, and the case was remanded, with or-
d-rs to re-transfer the case to Leon County
Circuit Court. No point of law was decided.
So, you see, Mr. Call's statement is not true.
Mr. Call, continuing his defense, says:
"Long after this decision against us John P.
Sanderson, the attorney for the new compa-
ny, became satisfied "that their title was
doubtful without our asment to the sale, and
Judge Baker and Niblack and myself agreed
to sell to Col. Sanderson, for the new compa-
ny, whatever rights we had acquired under
the purchase of 1869.
This case was remanded in 1870, Mr. Call
says, "long after" he sold his rights to avoid
clouding the title of the new company.
Yet in the Record of suit of Sanderson vs.
L'Engle now in my hand, Mr. Call swears
that he received $8,000 less 5 per cent. for
his stock in the J. P. & M. railroad.
Mr. Call in his defense says we, meaning
Baker, Niblack and himself. "were never
members of the company." Why not if they
held stock in the company? How could their
stock in any inanner cloud the title of the
company which issued the stock to them? E.
M. L'Engle on page 46 of the Record says:
"I do recollect that the stock of Niblack,
Call & Baker, 1,250 shares each, or about
that number, in the Jacksonville, Pen-
sacola and Mobile railroad company
were contracted to be purchased by M. S.
Littlefield. The 1,250 shares mentioned in the
interrogatory- as being iu the name of J. P.
Sanderson were Wilkinson Call's shares."
S. L. 1Siblack, on page 44 of record, says:
"I knew that he (Sanderson) had the stock of
Judge Baker and Colonel Call in his hands at
that time, but none other."
Littlefield, on page 62, says: "The Call
case was settled in the spring of 1870."
How? By giving Mr. Call stock.
How does this appear? by Mr. Call's own
testimony (on page 21) which shows that he
held this stock later, as one of the checks
given him was paid in the "summer of 1870."
Littlefield, on page 65, says:
'" l'o the best ot my knowledge they [Baker,
Call and Niblack] did not pay an.Yhmug` for
their stock. They were members of the as-
sociation known by the name of F. Dibble and
associates, whu purchased the roads."
On page 68, LittlefiAld says: "I paid $8,000
cash to Call, Baker and Niblack," and that
he bought their stock "because I wished to
control as nearly as possible the entire stock
of the J., P. & M. R.R. Co."
Can you discover anything to impair
Littlefield's title in this transaction?

WASHINGTON, D. C., June 20,1890.
W. D. CHIPLBy, Esq.,
Vice-President and Land Comrr., Pensacola, Fla.
Dear Sir: The facts connected with suit are that
after the notes were put in my hands, I notified
Mr. Call, by letter in ihe usual Way, that I was
instructed to bring suit. In response to this let-
ter a young man, whom I understood was his
clerk, or secretary, called upon me stating that
he did so at Mr. Call's request or desire, and asked
for a delay. He further however, stated that
Mr. Call desired the debt, claiming that the pur-
chase of the stock had been made by the bank,
and after conversation with him I declined the
delay requested. Subsequently to this a'gentle-
man called on me stating that he was sent by
the Comptroller of the Currency to inquire into
the facts connected with the suit. I understood
from him that an appeal had been made to the
Comptroller to stop proceedings against Mr. Call,
and I further understood that this appeal had
been made either directly by Mr. Call or some one
in his behalf for him. I fully informed this gen-
tleman as to all the facts of the case and he left
me stating that the Comptroller would not inter-
fere, subsequently to this I was instructed by the
receiver of the bank to delay further proceedings,
as Mr. Call had made some promises'as regard
settlement, and not to have any service made
upon him in case he returned to the city (he then
being absent) I had been previously informed
that Mr. Call made a number of promises of set-
tlement or compromises to the bank before the
matter was placed in my hands for suit, after
considerable delay I was again instructed by the
receiver through his attorney that all the state-
ments or promises made by Mr. Call, had come to
nothing and to proceed with the suit, which I did.
Mr. Call was duly ,served with process, and has
filed a demurrer to the suit.
Yours very truly,
He also produces certificates from respectable
people concerning Mr. Hartridge's confirmation.
Mr. Hartridge related to me many things these
Senators may not have known, and I believe Mr.
H. told the truth.
Mr. Call claims larger appropriations dur-
ing his service in the Senate than in all Flori-
da's previous history. It would be strange
indeed if all this were not true during ten
years of railroad development, which has
studded our State with cities and filled it
with industries unknown before, but Mr.
Call does not and cannot show his personal
agency in these matters. When Congress
convenes he rushes in and introduces bills
about everything he can think of and when
other Senators happen to include any of his
measures and pass same he claims credit.
Whether Mr. Call ever refused to meet me
is a matter for the judgment of my fellow
citizens. My efficiency or inefficiency as
chairman of the State Executive Committee
(my actions in the campaign being in his
opinion an obstacle) does not disprove any of
my charges, and I ca very calmly point to
the majority of 1888 'for an answer to the
Senator's insinuations.
Mr. Call accuses me of lobbying, but fails
to r ffer any evidence. Before I have finished
I will demonstrate that his unsupported tes-
timony does not amount to much. While he
arraigns me, he denies my charge that he was
threatened with expulsion from the Senate
chamber of Florida for disreputable lobby-
ing. I will read you a statement from the
presiding officer of (he Senate:
"Ou one ocoasioD, when I was President of
the Senate, the secretary, J. G. Gibbs, from
the reports of committees reed a bill which 1
was satisfied had not been acted on by the
committee to which it had been referred
(railroads and canals,) tor I was a member of

that committee, and well remembered the
bill. I rose to inquire if the chairman (Judge
Niblack) had reported that bill, the Judge be-
ing ab ent. I asked the cleik if the bill had
been reported back by the chairman, and if
so to read the report. Gibbs replied lhat the
bill had been put upon his desk to be read
and acted upon. Judge Niblack being sent
for, statedl that he had not reported the bild;
that he left it on his desk when he went out
of tha-chamber. I then required the secre-
tary to state how be came into possession of
the bill, and he replied that Mr. Call handed
it to him. After reprimanding the clerk, I
remarked in substance that such intermed.
dJiug with the business of that body was an
offense against public decency, against the
rules and dignity of the Senate, and if re-
peated by anyone the offender would be
forcibly ejected from the chamber. Call was
present, but left immediately.
This officer was Gen. W. D. Barnes. I
read this statement to Col. Whitfl-ld Walker,
and he said that he had not thought of it for
a long time, but that I had it about right.
Mr. Call explains this by saying that Sena-
tor Niblack was a special friend of his. Of
course this disproves the charge, in the Sen-
ator's logical mind.
A friend of Hon. Asa McNeil, of Holmes
county, has sent me a letter from Call and
asked for an explanation.
In his letter Mr. Call says, "Chipley says
in his book that you told him I had the reso-
lution (No. 27) in the last'Legislature printed,
and would not Day for it."
I do not say this. I was told by Mr.
McNeil that Mr. Call had the resolution

Mr. Plumb agreed with Mr. Pasco, and in
this same speech said, referring to Mr. Call:
"The amendment which the Senator proposes
would destroy every title growing out of land
grants of 1856." Mr. Plumb said, further,
that the bill "would not be a bill of peace
and quiet, but a bill of destruction."
Before dismissing the land question, I want
to direct your attention to Mr. Call's incon-
sistencies and misstatements in his numerous
speeches on this subject.
Mr. Call has stated in the Senate twenty
times that no land was ever certified to build
the railroad between Jacksonville and Pensa-
cola. With characteristic inconsistency he
suotes in his speech of April 30th a report
owing that more land was certified than
the road was entitled to, the estimate being
upon a distance of 307 miles.
Every man of any intelligence who ever
paid his fare over the road knows the dis-
tance to be 370 miles, not 307.
But Mr. Call could not estimate from this
standpoint. By going around through Geor-
gia he saves paying fare by using his passes.
Any ordinary man is corrupted by a pass
in the Senator's opinion, but the Senator
himself is so great and so good that they can-
not corrupt him.
While Mr. Call denounces many respectable
railroad men as robbers, he praises others in
his speech of March l1th, 1890, as enterpris-
ing and liberal developers.
Of course it is a mere coincidence that he
travels on their roads free. The Senator
fails to mention another coincidence; that
these men control roads with land grants
some of which were secured by the use of the
charter of a second road.
He quotes Gov. M. S" Perry's letter written
in 1859 to show that certain lands were not
certified, though well aware that these lands
wero patented in 1860, a year later.
Mr. Call pretends to quote this letter of M.
S. Perry in his speech of April 25th, and then
adds that it was official notice to the land 'de-
partment that "the legislature had made' no
disposal of it; that he had no right to desig-
nate or to receive certified lists until it had
so made them."
Yet, there was an additional clause in
Governor Perry's letter which Senator Call
omitted. It reads as follows:
"In the meantime I request that the adjustment
of the grant to the State may be brought to a
speedy conclusion, as the labors of your depart-
ment will permit, and that lists of the lands be
made out in the name of the State and forwarded
to me."
Does that sound like refusing to receive these
In his fifteen statements that the internal im-
provement import act has been repealed (which
would leave every man who has bought land from
the board in twenty years without a title), he refers
to new charters to railroad companies. If he re-
fers to the act of June 24th, 1869, or its amend-
ments of January 28th, 1870, there is] noth-
ing in the claim; but like the special charters to
railroads, specially recognizes the act whose re-
peal has not yet been discovered by governments,
cabinets or courts.
Senator Call claims over and over again that the
Florida railroad did not accept, within six months,
the benefits of the act to build to Tampa. This
road's charter was not amended until the six
months had expired, but all defects, if any, were
cured then.
But I will quit the land grant matter
which is a dead issue, and after thank-
ing you for your attention will conclude by
reading a letter proving that Senator Call
was paid for delivering a speech at Madison
in the dark days.

HON. W. D. CHiPLEy, Pensacola, Fla.:
Dear Sir-Yours of June 6th I found on my

was paid Wilkinson Call, referred to in your
pamphlet, page 32, that statement is substan-
tially correct. Being chairman of the Demo-
cratic Executive Committee of Madison

spondence and had to make considerable ef-
fort in those dark and hard times of carpet-
bag rule to raise that money. Yours truly,

the assertion that he, (the Sheriff,) was
guilty. And "I," says the sheriff, "demand
an investigation, as I will not admit I am
guilty. I am charged with substituting
the name of Thomas W. McCormick for that
of Thomas M. McOormio. The name
drawn was Thomas M. McCormic, District
No. 3. There being no Thomas M. McCor-
mick in that district; Thomas W. was
served. The law does not make the middle
name important." The communication was

Commissioner Pickett, to whom was re

this board has no jurisdiction over the mat-
ter. The report was order ed filed.
A communication from D. E. Maxwell,
general manager of the Florida Central and
Peninsula railroad, was read, relative to
tax assessments on the road's property. He
says, "The property assessed in 1889 covers
both the property as paid t o the comptroller
and property that should be assessed to the
county. To avoid expense we pe-
tition you to accept the amounts due u pon
property that you are entitled to payment
direct as will be shown by return made by
the assessor for 1890. We suggest a confer-
ence be had as to the matter and an adjust-
ment reached. Under the assessment, as it
now stands, we cannot pay the taxes, as it is
a double assessment. Nearly all the property
used for railroad purposes is returnable to
the comptroller."
This communication brought up the peti-
tion os P. L'Engle filed at the last meeting
for a reduction of assessment, and who has a
building on land owned by the railroad (the
right of way). After a full consideration of
the matters they were referred to the finance
