per Tupper is from Philadelphia and has

the beginning by Dr. Tupper asking,
why is a public speaker like a wheel,

the longer the tire. No so in the
case of Dr. Tupper, for his lecture
came to an end all too soon.
Dr. Tupper dwelt on the tendency
of many to always look at the dark

and the harm done thereby. Pessi Pessimists

HARD TO HEM
The Star is informed that the pas pastor

in a recent sermon took for his text
the "expose" of Pleasant Holt by
Dixie, and the attempt of that paper
to make campaign material against
Senator Fletcher out of Holt's alleg alleged
ed alleged attempt to have negroes register
as democrats. The Star is not one
of those papers that think preachers
should keep out of politics. It
thinks they should preach against
evil wherever they find it. It hopes
however that this particular pastor
will take note of the fact that not
only has Dixie declared that it
knows Mr. Fletcher had nothing to
do with Holt's action, but that the
evidence against Holt himself is
mighty slim. Even the packed com committee

seems hard up to make a case

"will be made to vote them in a so so-C3!led

This brings up the question, what
kind of a primary would it be if
some of the negroes are allowed to
vote? It would seem that the word
unite could no longer be used, and
it would be a badly mixed primary.
"The lawyers claim that under the
state law a man must be registered
if he is qualified as a voter, and the
registration officer must register him
with the party with which he desires
to affiliate. If this is the law it is
likely to cause a result that was not
intended by the framers of the stat statute.
ute. statute. The negro has been eliminated
long ago as a controlling factor in
politics in Florida. Nobody except a
man who can use the negroes wants
them to have a voice in the choice
of officers, and it is fay no means

registered as democrats will be al

St. Petersburg Independent.
Sorry to have to say it, but our St.
Petersburg contemporary, the editor
of whom has been in Florida only a
few years, takes a more practical
view of the matter than the News.
The primary to be held in June is
greatly different from those that
have been held in Florida heretofore.
Our previous primaries have been
for democrats only and were' strictly
The state controlled primary is
one in which all parties may take
part. Of course, each party is to
vote only for its own candidates, and
at this writing it does not look like
any but the democrats will enter the
primary; however, the others may,
If they desire to.
As for the negroes voting, under
the law a negro may vote as a dem democrat
ocrat democrat unless he is challenged, and if
he is challenged he may still vote
as a democrat, if he takes the neces
sary oath. Some twenty or twenty
five negroes have registered as dem
ocrats in Marion county; and, ac
cording to the News, some have reg
istered, or tried to register, as dem
ocrats in Putnam. According to the
Independent, which is on the ground,
