it is a shame that our able men in

I have had the opportunity to know

Congress. Yours truly,

A STIIOXG LETTER
FROM SENATOR CARNEY
In your issue of the;0LI) TOM RAKER'S
9th, you have an article entitled
"May negroes vote in the white primary-"
I want to commend you
and this article as being timely and
to the point, or rather several points I
that it coveTS. The decent people of
our town, county and state, and in
fact, the whole South, who have the
best interests of our Southland at
heart, can indorse your article in
toto. I," like yourself, am not per personally
sonally personally acquainted with Mr. Pleas.
iolt, of Jacksonville, but I do know j
that hi3 influence and work in our
state for some years has been
against morality and decency, and
mnrp hanpfnl in 'its: pffpts than
ui j uaui t any uuicu unici uicu in luc
state. Dixie in recent issues has
shown Mr. Holt still at his dirty
work encouraging negroes to reg register
ister register and vote in the democratic pri primary,
mary, primary, so as to defeat any good white
man who might aspire to an office,
either city, county state or national.
Parts of your article are so true
and strong that I want to repeat
some of them in this paper.
You say in speaking of the ne
groes being registered as democrats
that "They are being hired to regis register
ter register and to vote in order to defeat
white men. If they vote in the gen
eral election at all they will vote the
republican ticket unless they are
hired again. As for the .men who are
inducing them to vote, there is hard hardly
ly hardly language bad enough to describe
them. We all know what Southern
people thought of the carpet-bagger
forty years ago. A Southern born
white democrat or a democrat who
has been in the South lon enoug to
understand conditions here, who en
lists negroes to vote against white ;
men, is -worse than a carpet-bagger
could possibly ever have been or
worse than a negro can be. He is a
traitor to his party and his section,
and a renegade to his race." So
true, so true is every word of this
paragraph. And the worst of this
whole matter, 'Mr. editor, is that we
do not 'have to go to Jacksonville or
Duval county to see the harm that
Mr. Holt and his co-workers have
done against the uplift of our state,
but right here in our own town- and
county we have white-skin men who
have use! the Holt methods against
decent measures of our county. In
our last wet and dry election, the
whole country was scoured and
drummed over by automobiles with
white drivers to bring negroes into
town and the various country pre precincts
cincts precincts to thwart the "will of our best
white people by an ii responsible
purchased vote. What a shame up upon
on upon any white man, claiming that re respect
spect respect of his race!
The Ignorant negro whose morals
are most corrupt and whose appetite
for .strong dfink has been whetted
by depraved white men, is not so
much to blame for selling his vote
for a quart of liquor or for a dollar,
for he is not able to see any harm
done for the exchange of his vote
for a consideration, when the con consideration"
sideration" consideration" will appease a thirst for
a drink or satisfy the hunger of his
But, Mr. Editor, can a white man
think of himself, his family or his
race, who will use this purchasable
vote to further some nefarious or
selfish-scheme of his own? Should
he not expect to forfeit the respect
of all honest people?
I have tried for some years to
have enacted into law, an act to dis-j
franchise- the ignorant negro the
same as most oi me oouinern states
now have known more Dartieularlv
have known more particularly
the Grandfather clause., in the

In our statutes, this question of ne-
- proes voting in our democratic pri-
maries would not confront us now

methods would be eliminated from

During almost the entire memory
of any and every member of the Ma Marion
rion Marion County Board of Trade, a cry crying

J a fair and equitable, freight rate so
that the products of the county
could be shipped out, and the tieeds
: of the county could be brought in at
! a cost that did not mean placing the
shipper at a disadvantage when
compared with other points which
could be classed as competing ones.
Many plans have neen devised and
some placed in execution, but none
have brought the desired result.
Nearly two years ago the Board of
Trade took up the matter in earnest,
and the first step toward the desired
end was the extension of the city
limits east to Silver Springs, thus
bringing to the city the possibility of
a water rate on its freights.
This was a long step in the right
direction, but only one of the several
that were necessary before the right
could exist to bring the leverage of
a water freight rate to ibear on the
railroads entering this territory. The
second step seemed to be that one
which would provide transportation
from the outer eastern edge of the
city to its business center. Several
; plans have been discussed, but the
concensus of opinion tended to the
building of an electric or other pow power
er power driven railroad, and after that
had been practically agreed upon,
there came the question of how it
was to be done, and two possibili
ties presented themselves. First,
the enlisting of local capital; and
second, if that were net found pos possible,
sible, possible, then to present it to outside
capital. But how was it to be gat-
j ten into concrete shape so that
j either local or outside capital could
;know what it was to get in exchange
j for the money it would invest,

The Tampa Times
The measure of doing away with
the electoral college and causing the
president and vice president to be
chosen by direct vote of the people,
though it has many friends and sup supporters
porters supporters in this section, is fraught
with extreme danger to the influence
and prestige of the South.
Congressman Richmond Pearson
Hobson has introduced in the House
a bill providing for the inauguration
of the new system. How any dem democrat,
ocrat, democrat, and especially a Southern
democrat, can contemplate the
change from the old system to this
modern" innovation with equanimity
passes our comprehension.
Under the present method which
has existed from the foundation of
the government to the present the
strength and influence exerted by a
state in tne matter or selecting a
president is in proportion to the total
population of that state regardless
of the number of votes polled. Un
der present conditions in the South,
which we do not desire changed, the
vote actually cast is comparatively
small, the negroes almost unani
mously, abstaining from voting and
the white voters, from the fact that
there is practically but one party and
scarcely any contest over any elec
tion except in our party primaries,
very largely refrain also from vot
. To offer a concrete illustration
Under the present system of voting
for president the states of Alabama
and California exert the same in
fluence over the result, both having
the same number of electoral votes;
but if the system of direct voting
was substituted California would
have just about three times the
weight of Alabama in determining
the result as the popular vote of the
former state averages about three
times that of the latter. Almost all
of the Southern states compare in
the vote polled in about the same
ratio with the northern and western
states as does Alabama with Cali California.
fornia. California. Under the present system
the state of Illinois polls less than
three times as many votes in the
electoral college as does Georgia;
under the method of direct voting
she would have greater weight than

Many charges having been made
against Greece, for the conduct of
her soldiers during the Balkan war,
the Atlantis, the leading paper of

prints a long article in their de defense,

From the sad spectacle of a nation
calling for material help to foreign
lands we beg you to turn to the in inspiring

bearing her burdens and intelligent
ly repairing her losses, with a unani

peasant, colonial immigrant and the
worker at home. We invite you to
consider not only the self-denial of
the Greeks of America, who gave
their savings, often their all, to aid
their country, but also the patriot patriotism

now, are leaving their lucrative em

and enlist in the army that will toil,
not alone in its military capacity but
as the workmen who must slave to
construct where destruction has
passed and to bring prosperity once
more to the waste places left des

Let us now consider the position
of Greece with regard to her refu

garians rush to her for aid. When
peaco was declared after the second
Balkan war, 128,000 refugees of
four nationalities and three religions
had already poured into Greek ter
ritory. Many of these had escaped
from the religions allotted to Bul Bulgaria,

Once within her borders Greece
received and sheltered the unfor
tunates who thus threw themselves
upon her mercy. She gave them

"cities of refuge" appeared in the
land. Before the bitter winds of
winter came, wooden structures
were erected and the government
engineers were busy with plans for
towns and cities where these home homeless

permanent settlements. So much for
the refugees of the last war with
Bulgaria. The 128,000 just men mentioned

Greek and Turkish inhabitants of
the new territories who have little or
nothing left. Their towns and vil villages

plight was pitiful. These also were
victims of the second war. The
Greco-Turkish struggle left in Mac Macedonia

people. Greece has succored and is
still caring for 253,000 souls, not
counting the widows and orphans of
those who died for their country.
This colossal undertaking has been
accomplished by patriotism and un unselfishness

Signing the Pledge
Dear Christian Endeavorers: It is
our earnest hope that certain false
and erroneous reasonings which are
prevalent in some places may not
take away any of the force and beau beauty
ty beauty of pledge-signing. Its recognized
propriety is as old as the word of
God and has been sanctioned by
law, and good people ever since. But
certain false teachers creep in un unawares
awares unawares to make even this time-honored
scriptural method of no effect.
Signing the pledge is simply a
note made legal by our signature, a
deed recorded and placed on file, a
bend given under which our charac
ter would be the forfeit, a burning:
of the bridge behind us where lies I
the city of destruction. Words may:
vanish in the air and the one who!
promises may forget, but when the
contract is legally,, signed the case Is
different. Its legality, publicity and j
unchanging declaration of what we
have done" gives it a solemn reac reactionary
tionary reactionary force that doubles the bind binding
ing binding power and presents just the ob
ject lesson needed to others.
The woes of the Scripture lesson
for this meeting could never nave
been written if people had always
been held by a pledge and that this
bond has held many who otherwise
ivould have gone to ruin none can
deny. Let us get every one we can j
to earnestly sign it, let us get' our!
state to take the pledge, and it can cannot

will do the same.

reasons for this action. For one thing,
he was a salaried man and could not
afford to lose his job. What influenced
him most, however, was his genuine
liking for Anthony.
The first thing Kirk did when pay

part of his salary in an envelope and
send it to John Weeks, with a note
explaining that he had withheld only
enough for his own actual needs, and
promising to continue reducing his in indebtedness

He was surprised beyond measure to
have the remittance promptly returned.
The brief letter that accompanied it
brought him a flush of discomfort.

undecided whether to be offended at
her conduct or gratified, and he had not

Edith sighed. "It is tentbly dull for

Mrs. Stephen Cortlandt were seen
dancing with the new collector of

truth. I haven't any clothes."
Edith silently extended the envelope
in her hand, but he laughed.
"Perhaps I'll come to the next dance.
I'll be rich then. See!" He showed
her a long slip of paper consisting of
five coupons, each numbered "SS38."
He nodded. "Allan had a very par particular

succeeded in working his way through

about a revolving wire cage, so arrang arranged

upon its axis. Into it were put ten
ivory spheres, resembling billiard balls

and a very badly frightened twelve-year-old

from the audience, then lifted to the
stage, where it required the commands
