the child of her unle, Hon. John C.
McGehee. Judge MNeehee, who
was born in 1800 and died is 1881
had become proprietor of a moAt ex.

while Florida was yet a territory, sad
had built a noble mansion, "Chuileo

William Naylor Thompson, of
Fernandina, a citizen of much pro-
mineece, was treasurer of the F. C.

Nams county In the Florida Senate.
Senator Thompson and Olivia Ann
MeGehee were married In 1871.
Ever afterward, Mrs. ThomIanm re-
sided in Fernandins, Ia the home her
husband and she had built. Here
her husband died Spt. 30th, 1896,

Mrs. Thompson was a much loved
and useful member of the Prebyteri-
an church, of which her fbterther
had been an honored Raleag-Elder.
This life of three-ecome yean sad

replete with interesting details, re-

children could almost wotblp while

First-ONE ISSUE in this cam-
paign stands out pre.emineutiy
above all others, namely, shall the
laws ot Florida be impartially and
fearlessly enforced? Shall consti-
tuted authority be respected, and
shall our government be adminis-
tered in the interest of the whole
people and for thebenefit ot the whole
peopki I am opposed to the state
or nation being controlled or domi-
nated by a class, whether that class
is a coterie of capitalists or the rad-
ical elements which are now so
clamorous. I am opposed to Social-
ism, Bolshevism, Syndicalism or
any other schemes of government
proposed and fostered by the social-
istic elements of our society which
are not in sympathy with our. form
of government and its institutions. I
am unalterably opposed to the "red
flag" and what it stands for. .For
its teachings of class hatred, its vis-
ionary and distorted "isms" of
government or lack of government,
and for its deceitful and sedutivec
promises of loot and power to a
special class of society. I do not
expect neither do I desire the vote
of any man who would substitute
for our institutions, the Bolshevis-
tic, Socialistic or I. W. W. propa-
ganda, for the confiscation and de-
sirucion of ass that the Anglo-
Saxon has been taught to revere
Second-I WANT TO S E E
BETTER GOVERNMENT ES.
TABLISHED IN FLORIDA. A
political office is not a private asset,
belonging to him who holds it, to
be n~ed in the furtherance of finan-
cial or political advantage. We
will have "better. government" in
Florida only when men elected to
high office shall think of themselves
as representing the people and their
welfare, rather than their own sel-
fish aggrandizement. The higher
and more important the office, the
greater is the responsibility of him
who would fill it, and higher should
be the ideals actuating every official
act. He who aspires to the high
office of governor, should know and
respect the constitutional preroga-
tives which are vested in the gover-
nor, and he should likewise knew
and respect the limitations of exec-
utive power imposed by the consti-
tution and laws of the state. I am
opposed to the governor's office be-
ing used as a clearing house for
cheap and selfish political schemes,
and if I am elected governor I will
not use its high functions to build
a political machine to advance the
political ambitions of any man.
Neither will I pander to passing
prejudices nor practice the crooked
arts of the demagogue. In a gene-
ral sense the foregoing represents
the primary issues and I shall stand
for them without fear or favor. I
shall also stand for more specific
things as follows:
The education of our children is
of primary importance because our
teachers mould from the plastic
mind of childho-l the characters
which must ultimately control the
destinies of the nation. In youth
is the time to instill love of country.
Every boy and girl should b,
taught the principles of civil gov-
ernment and the sacred obligation
of constituted authority. An edu-
cation in its broadest sense to be
useful and practical, must also be
comprehensive, developing the phy-
sical along with the mental powers
of the child. We should teach the
elementary principles of agriculture
and horticulture, as well as the do-
mestic arts and science and manual
training. It must be universal.
giving ecual opportunity to the
rich and poor alike." The school
term in most of our rural districts
is too short and our teachers are
too often inadequately paid.
departments of the state govern-
ment as will eliminate the necessity
for them. The people of Florida
are not opposed to paying reasona-
ble taxes, but they justly want to
see every dollar so paid do one dol-
lar's worth of *service. We can
readily see the necessity for a care-
ful and business-like administra-
tion, when we consider that taxes
are mounting all the while. Con-
sidering the rapidly increasing
wealth of the state, which goes to
make up our aggregate assess;neat,
taxes should be reduced rather
Other Questions of Interest
Our state institutions must be
judiciously and carefully managed
and supervised. If I am elected
governor every official or employee
connected therewith, must be an
efficient servant of the state, and
must ably and conscientiously per-
form his duties as such, and the
value of his or her services will not
be determined by supposed political
or partisan worth.
I believe that the final reclama-
tion of the Everglades districts
should be consummated as rapidly
as practicable, and that the state
lands, so far as possible, should be
sold to those who expect to culti-
vate the soil, as distinguished from
speculators. To insure this result
liberal terms for payment should be
I favor a just and equitable re-
apportionment of the representa-
tives in the state legislature as re-
quired by the constit on.
The development and construc-
tion of inland waterways is one of
the great needs of our state. We
should co-operate with the nat ion al
government in every feasible eater-
prise, having this end in view.
Nothing so rapidly develops oun-
try as adequate and economical
transportation, and if elcete I
pledge myself towards its consum-
mtation in every lo~tile ilmaner.
Our people are now wisely unaui-
imous in demanding better roakls and
hiilhw;tys, l 'cau'e they rL..ILe that
the industrial future of the state de-
pends largely on the kind of roads
that she may be in position to offer
those who contemplate coming into
Florida to develop her agricultural
and other resources. I believe that
Florida should have the best sys-
tem of roads that progressive econ-
omy can provide, and I also believe
that the funds provided by the state
and nation for building such roads
should be expended in the most
economical and efficient way.
I favor every measure that tends
to promote and encourage our agri-
cultural, citrus fruit, trucking and
live stock industries. It has been
said, "All wealth comes from the
soil." This being true, Florida is
singularly blessed by nature with
productive soil and climatic condi-
tions, and the above enterpr ises
properly bolstered and protected are
destined to make her one of the
richest states in the union.
There should be a just equaliza- Military Heroes
