IRISH WANT WAR WITH ENGLAND
The resolution committee's draft of
the platform was laid before the con

the convention is regarded as certain.

seek to have the plank dealing with

recognition of the Irish republic
BONE DRYNESS FOR BRYAN
Decisively defeated in his efforts to
force a bone dry declaration into the
committee structure, Wm, J. Bryan
announced bis : intention of renewing
the battle on the floor. He also had
several amendments to planks drawn
by the committee to present to the
convention, he added, but did not, dis disclose

TOO MANY PLANKS
The committee platform is silent on
prohibition enforcement. it was a
long document of more than : 7000
words, efforts'to produce a brief, em
phatic statement of principles being
balked at the outset A wide range
of subjects are treated, including ag agriculture,
riculture, agriculture, "labor, soldier relief and a
score of domestic questions.
SWATTED THE SENAE
Foremost was the plank endorsing
the league of nations and condemning
the republican Senate for having
stood in the way of world peace. The
Irish plank merely renewed previous
expressions of the democratic party's
sympathy with Irish aspirations for
self-government. The Mexican plank
urged that the new Mexican govern
ment be recognized when it has prov
ed its ability to maintain order and
signified its willingness to meet inter,
national obligations in protecting for
HOOTS THE REPUBLICANS
The claims of the republicans to
public economy are branded as false
pretense. Another plank discussed
the "shocking disclosure of. the lavish
use of money by candidates for the
republican nomination and the "con

Defendant produced Joe Taylor and
A. S. Pickett as witnesses to prove
his general reputation in the neigh
borhood in which he lives for peace

In their cross examination these
witnesses said: 'I have heard some

rebuttal to this testimony the state

is in the overruling of the defendant's
motion for a- new trial. '
Seventh assignment of error; is in
passing judgment and sentence. v
Thi eighth assignment of error is
not arresting the judgment.
Ninth assignment' of error is that
the judgment and sentence as to the
fine and the 'penalty is excessive.-
This prosecution is; under Chapter
7736 Acts of 1918Section one of this
act makes it unlawful for any person
to sell any alcoholic or intoxicating
liquors. Section five of the chapter,
which section has been amended and
the amendment wa3 in force at the
time of the swearing out of the war warrant,
rant, warrant, authorizes the possession of not
more than ; four 'quarts of alcoholic
or? intoxicating liquors, but with a
proviso, saying: f Provided such per person
son person obtained and had in his possession
said liquors before this act became a
law." The act became a law May 17,
1919. v U-. i. ::,V'-V;
' Section 13 says: "And the posses possession

what is called rum or moonshine liq liquor,
uor, liquor, shall in air of the courts of this
state," in any prosecution of proceed proceeding
ing proceeding for the violation" of any of the
provisions of sections one, three and
four of this act. be deemed prima
facie evidence of the violation of any
of such provisions."
First and second assignments of
error relate to this feature of the
trial and may be considered together.
The commission of, the crime is al alleged
leged alleged to have been on the 25th of
January, A. D. 1920. It was based
on the fact of an actual sale of intox
icating liquor to one Clarance Lang Lang-ford
ford Lang-ford on that date.
Langf ord swore it wa "one gajllon
of moonshine whisky, intoxicating
liquor." : J r'. (",- ;
' Mr. Gordon5 was permitted to tes testify,
tify, testify, over the objection of the defend defendant,
ant, defendant, of making a search of defend defendant's
ant's defendant's premises and the finding of less
than two quarts of moonshine liquor,
two months: prior to January 25th,
1920. The defendant then moved to
strike out such testimony, which mo motion
tion motion was overruled.
Mr. Green, for the state, conter
that under section 13, supra.," that' t
"possession of any quantity of,
is called rum or moonshine," r
time within two years prior
date of the prosecution, even but a
tablespoonful, is prima facie evidence
of a sale of intoxicating liquor. There
was no evidence of any other sale.
Mr. Green stated that the object of
the testimony by Gordon was to make
a prima facie case.
It must be borne in mind that this
prosecution was not based on the fact
that "rum or moonshine" was found
in the possession of the defendant.
Then why, make a prima facie case
out of what was not charged, or bas basing
ing basing on a fact not relied upon? r
Probably a man may be indicted for
the violation of this section, basing
such prosecution on the fact of pos possession,
session, possession, of moonshine or rum, in any
quantity, but when he is charged with
the fact of selling,, not basing such
prosecution on the fact of the pos possession

pynissible to show that at any time
two years .before the prosecution, he
did have rum or moonshine in his pos possession,

allows, or of intoxicating or alcoholic
liquors, in order to make ; a prima

A man. may legally possess foui

: On the question of the introduction
of evidence of the commission of other
nnd ; distinct crimes, our supreme
court has laid down the law in several
cases. . . r:
In the case of Wallace vs. State, 41
Fla. 547, the court said:
"Evidence of another and distinct
crime, committed by the defendant,
in no way connected by circumstances
with the one for which he is being
tried, is inadmissible; but proof of
any fact with its circumstances, even
though amounting to a distinct crime,
if it has some relevant bearing upon
the issue being tried, is admissible."
That case referred to and Cited is
the case of Robertson vs. State, 10
Fla509, 24 So. Rep. 474, wherein it
"All the authorities concur in the
view that evidence of defendant's
prior and subsequent acts, prior or
subsequent to the alleged offense,
which logically tend to prove the
criminal intent, or guilty knowledge,
where they are material, is admis admissible;
sible; admissible; and likewise, where the crime
in question is one of a system cf

PERRY EDWARDS CASE
Elsewhere we print the decision of
?ge Bullock in the Perry Edwards
ie. The judge gave us-the. doca
ment with full and free permission to
comment on it as we saw fit. : ;
We have no comment on the decis
ion. Judtre Bullock, as we know, was
opposed to the liquor traffic when it
was legal; it is self-evident that he is
opposed to it now that it is illegal. It
is his duty to interpret the law, and
it is our belief that he always inter
prets it faithfully and his record
shows that he seldom interprets it in
At the same time, there is no doubt
that Perry Edwards is guilty, that he
has broken the law for years, that he
has done more harm than any other
man Jin the county, that there are
better men than he serving life terms
in the penitentiary. He has evaded
punishment so far because he has
been able to amass by his nefarious
occunation monev' -enouerh to call .the
technicalities of the, law to his aid.

DECISION OF JUDGE BULLOCK
(Continued from First Page)
supporting the plaintiff's testimony
as to the amount of farm products
raiesd by him, to show the value of
plaintiff's services. The supreme
court said: "Plaintiff was suing for
injuries to himself," and the damage
to himself was the same, whether he
had a large or a small family. It was
undertaken to meet the objection by
saying there, as is practically said
here, that it was admitted for "a lim
ited and specific purpose." The su
preme court, in disposing of it. said,
Where improper evidence has been
admitted, the court should exclude it
in express terms, and it is not enough
to "do so by implication."

Mr. Green cites the case of Brad
shaw against the state, 23 Atl. 892,
where the defendant was charged
with playing a game of, "craps," by
a naffidavit in one eount, (as here),
and a party by the name of McCain
testified to the facts of the alleged
crime.--,;'. -r : :v";.;
- This same witness, McCain, made
the affidavit. ; One Skelton, another
witness, testified to other similar of offenses
fenses offenses at other times and places,
which was objected to as it was not
coincident with McCain's evidence.
On appeal the appellate court said:
"Whether an election can be requir required

the evidence sho.w more than one

cited several cases to that view. But
the court held against the defendant,
saying: "Under the view taken of
this case, we deem it unnecessary to

The circumstances and proof in the
case now presented are not of another
and "similar" offense," that has been
testified to. There is no pretext of
proof of defendant's selling intoxicat intoxicating

ed obstructed by the defendant, the court said:
"We do not determine whether this
can be done or not, when a single act
is charged upon a given day."
And the court continuing, said:
"But if the indictment had charged
that the obstruction was on the day
named, and divers other days, it would
have been clearly admissible."
In the last mentioned case the court
held that the defendant should have
asked for an election as to what crime
the state depended upon. The acts
were similar also, to-wit: obstructing
streets. '. '
The state next cites a Florida case:
Eggart v. State. 40 Fla. 527. That
was a prosecution for administering
certain drugs with intent to produce
a miscarriage, and the information
was in several counts. The first count
alleged : that it was on the 18th of
February, 1897, "and on divers other
days and times between that date and
the 9th of March 1897." The allega allegations

as was noticed in the case in 48 S. W.

Mr. Green has laid much stress on
the case of Pennsylvania Co. vs Roy,
102 U. S., 451, 26 Law Ed. 451, a
case for damages against the railroad
for personal injuries, where proof
was offered to show that after being
injured that plaintiff's sources of in income
come income were limited, and the highest
court m this nation said:
"This evidence was obviously irrel

The trial judge' in that case, evi
der.tly had discovered his error in ad
mitting it and in specific, direct terms
told the jury to disregard such evi
dence. ' :.
Such course is precisely what our
supreme court- has said should be
done, in the cases noted above and
other cases. 1"
' The language of the supreme court
in the case of U. S. just mentioned, is
almost in the precise language of our
own supreme court in the case of L.

Fourth and fifth assignments of
We have already noted the evidence
of the defendant's witnesses as to his
geenral reputation "for peace and as
a law-abiding citizen." In rebuttal the
question propounded was: "What is
Edwards' reputation for making and
selling moonshine liquor?"
Neither the state witnesses, Gallo
way, Gordon or Thomas had testified
that they knew his general reputation
in the community in which he lived,
but over the defendant's objection,
they testified to a specific crime, to-
wit: "Making and selling moonshiuo
liquor." All testified as to this one
specific act. -s
Our supreme court, in the case of
Reddick vs. State, 25 Fla. 112, said
that the accused has the right "to in
troduce evidence to show his general
good character or reputation, but it
is confined to general reputation, and

state, or brought out by the state on
cross-examination, must be confined

Later, in the case of Cook vs. State,
40 Fla. 20, in discussing the Reddick
case, the court said:
"We have no doubt that the proof in
such case by the state should be con
fined "to general reputation, and that
specific acts or conduct on particular
occasions is not proper."
And cited the case of Nelson vs.
State, 32 Fla. 244, where it was said
that, 1 "Proof in rebuttal should also
be confined to general reputation and
not be allowed to go into specific
' Underhill on criminal evidence,
section 20, which was cited in the

geenral character, but xannot fairly
be required, without notice to contro

It seems to me that there could not
be any more plain and specific decla
rations than above set forth.

A COSTLY MISTAKE
That is, thinking that you can pay a good price for a good automobile, feed
it any old sort of oil, and expect service and satisfaction from your car.
Do you realize that over 75 of motor breakdowns and'enrine trouble is
traceable directly to flint, or hard carbon? Would you not believe & man crazy to
deliberately place a handful of gravel or broken glass in the cylinders of his car?
Naturally you would. Yet you place oils in your motor that produce carbon flinty -enough
to cut any metal surface, no matter how hard it is. This is expensively -foolish.'
You 4 id not understand it before, but:
If you Sfcill bring your car to us, we will have your engine washed out at
no cost to you, fill it up with Texaco Motor Oil Extra Heavy, and if you do net
immediately get more mileage per gallon of gas and per quart of oil, and notice

of oil necessary to fill up your car.
TEXACO MOTOR OILS CANNOT MAKE A FLINT. CARBON
Therefore, by using it you eliminated imperfect lubrication.

FACTURE OF SWEET DREAMS
A traveler in relating his various
experience in Africa, casually men
tioned how the natives protected
themselves against the ravages of the
Tsetse fly. As is generally known,
the bite of this fly Tesults in "sleeping
sickness," a malady from which no
unfortunate ever recovers.
It was reasoned that a j remedy
capable of keeping off these flies
would also keep mosquitoes off. ",' So in
America this remedy was reproduced
as nearly as possible. Having been
found exceptionally satisfactory as a
mosquito remedy, this mixture has
since been offered in commerce under
the trade name of Sweet Dreams. The
efficiency of the prepartion has caus caused

sentence was within the letter of the
law. There may be open to the de defendant
fendant defendant other remedies, but I do not
find that an appellate court would be
justified in acting in snch matter.
Some authority has been cited as to
the presumptions in favor of the
judgment of the lower court being
correct. On this point it is sufficient
to refer to the provisions of Chapter
7841 of the acts of 1920, requiring the
appellate court to "hear and deter
mine the errors assigned .without re
gard to any presumption being in
dulged in support of the correctness
of the judgment appealed from."
For the reasons assigned the judg
ment is reversed and a new trial
granted the defendant.
It is considered and ordered that the
county judge for Marion county, Flor
ida, do set aside the verdict and grant
a new trial and that the clerk of this
court to transmit, within not less than
ten nor more than thirty days' the
entire original record sent up in this
cause, including this order, to the
court of the county judge for Marion
county, Florida, under his hand and
