At 1 o'clock today an alarm of

promptly, and the fire was found
to be in a cottage owned by Don

CALL NOT CONFIRMED.
, r, ,
Mrs. Lena Duke Smith, widow
of the late Dr. Green Clay Smith,
does not say that she ever heard
her husband say that he was com-
ing to Fjorida to work for Mr.
Call's re election to the senate.
The only thing she says in her let-
ter bearing directly on the point at
issue is this :
"Uiing your inenci, your re-eiec-
tion to the senate would have
given him much pleasure."
The-Ocala Call organ said last
,w M.c QmiW ipttRr
week that Mrs. Smith's letter
would confirm Mr. Call's state
ments in every particular. Mr.
Call stated ttiat Dr. Smith was
:oming to iMonaa to advocate n is
'-e-election to t he senate, and we
leny that Mrs. Smith's letter con
firms this statement. We will ad
mit that it comes all around it; but
"a miss is as good as a mile."
Mrs. Smith misquotes Mr.
Hanks. She says:
"Mr. Hanks was rigrht in statins:
that General Smith would not have
left his church duties to f?o to
Florida to enter into a political cara-
Mr. Hanks never said any such
thing. That the reader may see
just what he did say, we reproduce
his card. He said:
'In regard to the question of
Dr. Green Clay Smith aiding: ben-
ator CaU's candidacy in Florida, I
would say that he never had such
. ... i
years, and was witn mm auring
his lat sickness, and by his re-
quest I had full charge of his fune-
ral services, and never in one word
did he express himself as contem-
plating such a trip to Florida as
Senator Call seems to have
K iu:;, ,r-
mixed with scheming politicians."
This lack of harmony between
the statements of the pastor's wife
and the acting clerk gives rise to
suspicion. Mr. Call's Ocala agent
may be able to clear it up by pro producing
ducing producing Mrs. Smith's letter! It is
passing strange that neither Mrs.
Smith, Mr. Hanks, nor Dr. Cran Cran-fill,
fill, Cran-fill, who were so closely connected
with Dr. Smithjinlove and labor,
ever heard him say that he expect expected
ed expected to stump the state of Florida
for Mr. Call's re-election, while, on
the other hand, Messrs. Lindsey,
Burgess and Byrne, three obscure
men, who are "not even represented
as members of Dr. Smith's church,
but who sem to be greatly'indebt greatly'indebt-ed
ed greatly'indebt-ed to Mr. Call for favors, come out
boldly in the most approved and
up-to date political style, and say
that they actually heard Dr. Smith
say repeatedly that he was coming
to Florida to urgs in the strongest
terms Mr. Call's re-election to the
United States senate. There is
something so strange and unnat unnatural
ural unnatural about this affiir that we can
not accept Mr. Call's statement in
regard to Dr. Smith aiding him in
his political campaign through the.
state of Florida. It is a waste of
time to be multiplying testimo testimonials.

Zawfcrs and Christianity.
We have often heard it said that
it went hard with a lawyer to be a
Christian. The sentiment is a false
one. Many of our best Christians
.are lawyers. The best teachers of
law teach that it is a noble profes profession
sion profession or nothing. Such a teacher
was the late John B. Minor, pro professor
fessor professor of law at the University of
Virginia. No student who ever
sat tinder his teachings did not
feel this in his heart. Mr. Kings Kingsbury,
bury, Kingsbury, one of the greatest editors in
the South, in commenting upon
this characteristic in Professor
JVIinor, speaks as follows: "The
law, when well pursued giving
many hours a day to its faithful,
patient study, and carrying into'
its practice the principles that un underlie,
derlie, underlie, is surely a noble profession.
We know an eminent lawyer, a
native of Virginia, but resident in ;
Korth Carolina for fitty-three years, J
now not tar from seventy-five, who j
-will read law as if but beginning, j
and yet he is a truly learned law- j
,yer, of whom Chief Justice Pearson j
said twenty-two years ago, that 'it
there was anv more learned lawyer
than he in North Carolina he did
not appear before the supreme
court.' That great lawyer is a
profound, humble Christian, and
lias illustrated, in his own pure and
honorable life the high principles
of law and the excellence of Bibli Biblical
cal Biblical truth. The lawyers who have
reflected credit and reijown upon
their professionhave been the sur surest
est surest and best friends of liberty in
their respective nations. It is the
pettifogger, the man of small parts
and little learning who degenerates
into the demagogue and imitates
an 'Old Pailey' lawyer."
