ABOLISH THIS NUISANCE

From Fort Myers, Fla., under
date of August 5th, word comes
that the most intense indignation
lias been aroused by the proposed
lan of Teed, the Koreshan high
priest, to found a colony in Lee
county. Teed purchased a large
iody of land bordering on Estero
bay last year, to which he has been
sending colonists. There are now
a large number of persons at
Kstero, most of whom are women.
It is alleged that promiscuous liv living
ing living prevails and that the laws of
morality are violated. A letter has
been received from Pittsburg
which announces that Teed is
selecting the toughest men he can
find, many of them tramps, and
that he is purchasing arms and am ammunition.

men will be organized into a mili military

and if Teed brings in 200 or 300
men he can put his own henchmen
in office and all danger of his colo colonists

loose habits will be averted. The
receipt of this letter has inflimed
the people here so greatly that
