that Mr. Fletcher is one of the most
efficient men in the Senate. He is a
constant worker. You never see his
name tacked on to a high-flown and
useless speech. But almost daily is
he mentioned in the brief, emphatic
messages that tell of work for the
nation and his state. It is this capac capacity
ity capacity for and devotion to the useful that
has made Senator Fletcher a power in
national affairs a man who must be
reckoned with and consulted on every
great measure. As long as he rep represents
resents represents Florida in the Senate, our
state stands abreast of the greatest
commonwealths. Not eVen a man of
equal ability could fill his place so
well without long years of exper
ience with national affairs.

Dr. Hully is a man of great ability

but it is a question as to whether his
ability fits with the duties of a gov

the office than Swearingen or Wat Watson,

up to Hardee.
Mr. Rufus H. Buford is a candidate
for attorney general. We spoke of

For the county clerkship, candi candidates
dates candidates are becoming numerous. The
latest announcement is that of our
good and genial old citizen, General
Ayer, who has served the county in
one capacity or another for a quarter
of a century. The general has been
tax assessor for nine consecutive
terms, and in that office has obtained
an acquaintance with county affairs
that he believes will enable him to
ably discharge the duties of clerk.

Mr. James E. Thomas of Sparr is
another candidate for the clerkship.
It would be hard work to find any anything
thing anything but good to say about Mr.
Thomas. He is a first-rate citizen, a
man of high intelligence and excel excellent
lent excellent business capacity. Those who
know him most like him best, and he
will poll a heavy vote.

years tax collector, now member of
the school board, and J. W. Davis,
for a number of years county com
missioner. Both very good men and
both able and willing to serve the
county well. Our vote goes to Mr.
Colbert. We think he is better posted
than Mr. Davis on the duties of the
exacting office of tax assessor, and
we believe he will discharge the said
duties right up to the top notch. At
the same time, we must say that Joe
Davis is a mighty good man, and we
believe will take good care of the peo people's
