To the Democrats of Florida:
Friday, August 4, aji article ap appeared
peared appeared in the Florida Metropolis, pur
porting to emanate from Catts' advis
ers, from which I quote the third and
sixth paragraphs, as follows:
CATTS HAS TURNED INQUISITOR
"Each county official in Florida, and
each nominee to county office will be
asked the direct question whether or
not he is supporting Catts. Unequivo
cal replies are expected, and, as a
matter of fact, will be more or less de demanded,
manded, demanded, as the 'machine figures it is
in position to force the opponents of
Mr. Catts from the cover of equivocal
answers to such questions. ;
"The newly-formed, or new-born
effort is to be an aggressive one, tak taking

ation situation and is designed to .force well-
covered and subtle opposition ; from
county officials and officials-elect and
their individual f ollowings out into
the light, where the 42-centimeter
campaign guns can be trained into
range arid where the mortars or or
ganized influence can get into action.
WHAT IS HIS MOTIVE?
What do these utterances mean?
Are the democrats through their ex executive
ecutive executive committees, to have no voice
in the selection of appointees,? Will
Mr. Catts, if elected governor, trump
up charges against all judges who
may render decisions against him in
this contest, and against all sheriffs
and other officers who may perform
acts not of his liking, remove them
from office and appoint his own
choice? ; :;'";r'
Again, have you investigated what
manner of politics this man professed
in the state from which he came, or
what manner of man he was there?
WHAT HAS CATTS DONE FOR
Has he worked for Florida and help
ed to bear her burden, or done any-;
thing to entitle him to be the .chief j
magistrate of this state?
All of these I submit are serious j
questions which all true and loyal;
democrats of this state should stop j
IS RUNNING AS AN INDEPEND
Mr. Catts has already started on
his campaign as an independent. By
not awaiting the result of the pending
proceedings to secure an accurate and
correct count 'in "Hamilton, Duval,
Putnam, St. Lucie, Nassau, Orange
and other counties, he has practically
admitted that a correct count of the
first and second choice votes will show
that I was in fact the real nominee of
the party in the late primary elec election.
tion. election. For my part, I am perfectly
willing for him to run as an independ
ent, for, judging from his public ut utterances
terances utterances on the stump and in .the
press, he is not now a democrat and
never has been.
CATTS CRY OF "WOLF!
His hue and cry from one" end of
the state to the other is "Fraud!
fraud! wolf! wolf!" What is wrong
with the gains which have been shown
I made in Leon, in Hamilton, in Du Duval,
val, Duval, in Clay, in Putnam, in Orange
and in Suwanee counties?
KNOTT ONLY WANTS AN ACCUR
Those who saw the recounting done
in .Putnam county say : "The recount
in Putnam county was made so openly
and so fairly showing that all tjiat
Mr. Knott and his friends wish is an
accurate count of the vote as actually
cast in the June primary that the
most rampant of the Catts radicals
have failed to find the slightest
grounds upon which to base a cry of
trying to steal votes, etc"
Besides, did you read the letter of
Mr. Blackwell of Live" Oak, and the
affidavits to the effect that fifty-seven
electors voted first choice for me in
precinct No. 42 of Suwanee county,
when the first returns from that pre
cinct gave me only forty-five.
If any ballots were in part tamper
ed with in Madison county, it was
done without, my knowledge or con
sent, directly or indirectly. I have
taken, and do now take, the position
that such charge should be investi
gated by a grand juryr or other com
petent tribunal, and the guilty parties
punished, if there is guilt. Mr. Catts
HIS CASE TO TIE DEM-

ered that the boxes were opened at
PROBABLY ANOTHER PHILO
If such is the case, the detective
should continue his investigation, and
ascertain who opened them and fur

more interested or anxious than I
to have the offending parties brought
to justice and punished to the full ex
tent of the law. -THE
HAYES LEWIS INCIDENT
I have been informed that Mr.
Catts, in speeches recently made at
Madison Lake City and other places,
has related what Hayes Lewis had
said was the substance of an inter
view between Mr. Lewis and myself
at Mr. Lewis' office in Jacksonville.
As reported to me, Mr. Catts said in
those speeches that at said interview
Lewis told me that he understood that
I had sent a telegram to some attor
ney in South Florida to the effect that
such attorney need not do any more
down there, that I had had enough
done (meaning that I had had enoufih
ballots changed) in West Florida;
that I at first denied any knowledge
of such telegram, but afterward ad
mitted to the whole thing; that I
broke down and cried and asked
Hayes Lewis not to- give me away,
and that he, Lewis, became indig indignant
nant indignant and ordered me out of his office.
If such was the substance of Mr.
Catts' speeches iu the places: men mentioned,
tioned, mentioned, I wish to say that a more
malicious bundle of lies never passed
from the lips of any man. I had an
interview with Hayes Lewis in which
he asked me if such a telegram had
been sent. I told him that no such
telegram or communication had been
sent by me or by my authority, and I
say now that no such telegram was
ever sent, and I defy Lewis or Catts,
to produce any such telegram or show
that any such telegram was ever de delivered
livered delivered to or transmitted by the tele telegraph
graph telegraph company at my request or at
the request of any one acting for me.
DETAILS WILL BE GIVEN
At some other time I shall give to
the public the whole sum and sub substance
stance substance of what was said in my inter interview
view interview with Mr. Lewis, but space here
forbids. I shall also lay bare to the
public what to my mind, are some of
the rottenest political frame-ups that
have ever been attempted in this
state. Suffice to say now that I have
in hand correspondence and affidavits
that lead me to the conclusion that if
any ballots were tampered with in
Madison county, the emissaries of Mr.
Catts deliberately did it, or had it
done, in order that he might charge
that it was done in my behalf, and
might now use it as political thunder.
CATTS THREATENS AN INSUR INSURRECTION
RECTION INSURRECTION -
I am also informed that Mr. Catts
in a speech made in Lake City on .last
Monday night, said in substance that
he had. been nominated as the demo democratic
cratic democratic nominee for governor, and that
there was not sufficient power In
heaven above, or earth, or in hell be below,
low, below, to deprive him of the nomination.
That I might be declared by the courts
to be the lawful nominee, but that he
intended to appeal his case to the peo people
ple people notwithstanding, and that, if after
the November election, he wasnot de declared
clared declared to be elected, he would gather
around him ten thousand good and
true citizens of Florida, with white
badges on their right arms, rifles on
their shoulders, march to Tallahassee
and be seated in the governor's chair.
I am also informed that in a speech he
made at Live Oak the number given
was five thousand, but by the time he
reached Lake City it had grown to
ten thousand. In the article appearing
in the Metropolis on Friday, August
4, quoted I from above, it was stated
that Mr. Catts expected to get twen
ty-five thousand signers of his peti
tion to coerce all state and county of
ficials and officials-elect into support
ing Mr.Catts, and having his name
put upon the ballot in November? If

PARTY WILL BE PURIFIED
The content which I am makimr to
demonstrate that I was duly nominat
ed at the late primary election has
proceeded far enough to show that'
one of two things will result:
First That if, after I have won my
fight for an honest and accurate re recount,
count, recount, I am elected governor in No November,
vember, November, the democratic party of this
state will be purified of the undemo
cratic elements which have beer wear
ing the cloak of democracy for many
years past, and this state will have
four years of true and tried democ
racy, with scrupulous observance of
the inalienable rights of the people In'
their persons, property and liberties
according to- our constitution and
OR FLORIDA WILL BE IN A
STATE OF ANARCHY
Second That if I am not elected
governor in November,tMs state will
witness an administration of radical radicalism
ism radicalism and disregard of the law that will
outdo Blease in South Carolina in his
palmiest days, or anything this state
has ever been treated to since it elect
ed its last carpetbag governor.
From now until after the general
election it is going to be up to the
i ue democrats of this state to say
which of these results shall come to
pass. - -
KNOTT IS FOLLOWING DEMO
The rank and file of true democrats,
and a great majority of the public
press of the state are with me in my
ight. A few, without mature consid
eration, have criticised my action as
undemocratic. Section 55 of the demo
cratic primary law, passed by a dem democratic
ocratic democratic legislature, upheld by demo democratic
cratic democratic courts, expressly provides for
the kind of contest I am making. Two ;
circuit courts have already said so,
and the supreme court, which i3 now
weighing its opinion in regard to my
petition for a recount in Putnam
county, will7 if I am not badly mis
taken, again say so in no uncertain
terms within the next few days.
Again, my contest is not without
democratic precedent. In 1876 George
F. Drew, the apparently defeated can
didate, by means of a contest in the
courts was declared duly elected, and
thereby overturned carpetbag rule in
this state. In my opinion if the man
from Alabama, who has assumed to
question the integrity of our courts,
and defy their J decisions, is finally
elected we shall have a return of con conditions
ditions conditions a3 bad, if not worse, than those
of carpetbag days.
AV TTNTSWF.RVIVn DEMOCRAT
No man can say that I have not al always
ways always been a true democrat. For years
I have rendered honest, efficient and
faithful service to my state. Doe3 it
not seem strance that after all these
years of unquestioned nonesty and in integrity,
tegrity, integrity, a stranger from Alabama at attempts'
tempts' attempts' to prove to the people whom I
have served that I was a party to or
would endorse any dishonest act?
CATTS IS A BULL DOZER
Another very serious question are
the true democrats of this state go going
ing going to admit that this man from Ala Alabama
bama Alabama has obtained such momentum
and such power that he can, even be before
fore before he has attained the power of the
chief magistrate "of the state, bulldoze
and browbeat every county and state
official of the state into giving him

It is not to the credit of the good

of the Second Regiment are having so
much trouble in recruiting their com companies

hundreds who have nothing to do, and
every one of them who enlisted would
find himself in not only a good situa
tion, but a very usef ud school. We
often hear a young man say he would
be glad to enlist to go to the border,
but he doesn't want to go to the camp
at Black Point for a stay of weeks
or months. That is where he makes
his mistake. If the men of the Sec
ond Regiment had been rushed to the
border last June, they would have fac
ed conditions that they did not know
how to deal with and suffered not
only hardship but misery. As it is,
they have been in the camp until they
are practiced in their work and im
proved in their physical condition un
til they are something like real sol
diers instead of the greeo. crowd of
awkward, soft-muscled lads who left
home six weeks ago. Black Point is
one of the best of summer schools. It
is one of the best camps in the coun
try, as is evidenced by the condition
of the men who came home on fur
lough. They are all tanned and hard
muscled, and step like they were set
on steel springs. They are gainers
by their enlistment, for if there is no
war, they will have a lot of usef u
instruction; if there is, they will know
what to do.

And Each Little Jewish Girl Was Re

In the East side of New York as
in the East end of London, the Jewish
quarter of Paris or Judengasse of Ber

grandmothers gathered the little
daughters of the family to them one
night recently. Into tiny ears was
whispered the story of Ruth, the faith
ful. In each kitchen stood a new
broom, and tallow candles burned
brightly on tables spread with meats.
wines and cakes. - T
"Little daughter," each mother whis whispered,
pered, whispered, "do you know what Ruth said
"Yes," each little girl replied eager

for weeks. "Ruth 3 said 'Entreat -? me
not to leave thee, or to return from
following after thee. For whither thou
goest, I will go; and-where thou lodg
est, I will lodge; thy people shall be
my people, and thy god my God.'
And, beaming her pride, each moth
er then said:
"Good! Here is a cake for you!"
Thus the feast of Shabuoth was
ushered in. The broom was just as
much a part of the ceremony as the
reward of a cake. With it one could

His nomination is final, but in accord
ance with the old custom when the
cardinals voted for the election of
their comrades, he asks, "What is your

What is known as "radium" Is a
radium salt, usually either radium
bromide or radium chloride, some sometimes
times sometimes radium sulphate. Tiny grains
of these salts are extremely precious,
and are usualy sealed up In glass
bulbs. The radium in one of the first
bulbs that were received In' London
had a curious history. A physician
a Til are was acDlylng the
bulb to a natient when he accidentally
let it fall and a moment after crushed
ft under his foot.
The value of the radium to the phy
sician was very great. He removed
his shoes and cut out a square of his
raluable carpet. He had shoes and
carnet burned, and out of the ashes
refined the original radium salt It
was placed in a new applicator and is
in use today.
