controversy, that is so far as I was
concerned, I canrrct help but commend
you for coming out openly and above
board, although a little late, and stat stating
ing stating that the Alachua precinct vote for
governor should be counted. That is
what I have been tiying to get you to
say for two months or, more, also
since Mr. Knott has requested that the
recount-in Madison be thrown out on
account of fraud, I believe you will
now acknowledge there was fraud in
Madison, and this I have been trying
to get you to say for three months. I
hope to see you, Brother Benjamin, in
the next few days and shake your
hand and congratulate you for this
much; maybe, oh, maybe, we will yet
get together on Mr. Catts before Nov.
7th. The evidence of fraud in the
Hamilton county case was practically
as great as that of Madison and while
the night hawks' work was almost as
crude, he was not quite so greedy and
this and only this in my judgment
saved Hamilton. I wonder how many
naen in Florida believe Mr. Knott
would have asked for Madison to have
been thrown out if Hamilton remain remaining

Mr. Blitch is somewhat slow. Over

However, we do not complain. Mr.
Blitch is more inclined to give the
Star credit for fairness tbn most
other people in his faction.
We are surprised at a man of Mr.
Blitch's information and general
broadness of view swallowing that

silly lie about the "pope's yellow flag"
being hoisted on our battleships. In
the first place, the pope has had no flag
since 1870, when the Italian govern
ment took possession of his temporal
power. In the second place, no papal
flag has ever been hoisted on an
American warship. There is a church
pennant, a blue cross on a white field,
that is hoisted whenever religious ser services
vices services are performed on auy ship of
the United States navy. There are
men of all churchas in our navy, and
each of the larger ships has a chap chaplain.
lain. chaplain. Some of the chaplains are
Catholics, but most ot them are
Protestants. No matter what church
the chaplains or the men belong to
they use but one flag, and that is the
flag prescribed in the regulations. We
suppose Mr. Blitch is aware that Eng England
land England and Prussia are both Protestant
nations, and they also have crosses on
their church flags; in fact, the fashion
of the church flag of the American
navy was taken from that of England.
It has only been since the coming
of that great prophet Billyparker
that we knew the cross was a dis
tinctively Catholic symbol. We were
taught to believe it was the common
symbol of Christianity, lsn t it a
Protestant hymn that says:
"With the Cross of Jesus
Going on before"?
We invite Mr. Blitch to take any
hymnbook he finds in a Baptist or
Methodist Sunday school and. try to
pick out the hymns that have no
reference to the Cross in them. We
have been to more than one Metho
dist camp meeting where the lines,
"In the Cross, in the Cross
Be my glory ever,"
lifted the worshipers out' of their
seats. We have seen crosses over
scores of Protestant churches, and on
the covers of hundreds of Protestant
bibles. The Protestant nations of
Denmark, Norway and Sweden have
crosses on their flags. Switzerland,
three-fifths Protestant, has a cross on
its flag." The man who started the
story that the pope's flag was hoisted
on American warships was a silly as
well as an unscrupulous liar, and we
are surprised that a man of Mr.
Blitch's intelligence should believe it.
As for the vote in Hamilton county,
if Mr. Blitch had been up there and
thought he found evidence of fraud,
we would attach weight to his opinion
As it is, he only has the evidence that
went before the court, and the court
thought it was too thin to hold water

ing thinking of tampering with the ballots
The Jasper News is a paper we have
been reading for thirty years, during
most of which time it has been in the
hands of the Caldwell family, the
members of which for their devotion
to truth, fair dealing and genuine de
mocracy are not excelled in the state.
Mr. Blitch misquotes Mr. Knott,
who did not ask that the recount in
Madison be thrown out on account of
fraud. He asked that on account of
the bitter controversy caused by the
recount, that it be not considered.
We have no doubt that most of the
guardians in our state are good men,
but we consider those in the north,
where the movement had its begin beginning,
ning, beginning, as just such another set of scal scalawags
awags scalawags as the coffee coolers and car
petbaggers who followed the Union
arjny in 1865. Our regret is that our
own honest and patriotic people are
deluded by such men whose stock In
trade consists of statements like that
about the pope's flag, the fallacy of
which we have just shown. Yet any
man who can read could have found
the confutation of that yarn in any
copy of Webster-'s Unabridged die-

The special from Chicago, now run

bluejackets from the cars the firing on
the river became more distinct.
Bob Wendell, not having charge of a
detail, went from the station with the
officers who were similarly unattached
and hurried down to the water front.
The estuary of the James river, where
it widens to Hampton Roads, lay
gleaming under the warm afternoon
sun. A wind from the ocean was
whipping up white spray in the roads,
and the launches and little boats in
the James rolled and splashed on their

Big blobs of white smoke spotted the
sky where the shells were breaking.
There were more white blobs up there
than one gun could fire. Another rifle
must have come into action. Wendell,
listening, heard the noise of a second
gun from down the river, and yet for a
moment more he failed to discern the

both sides of the streak there was
something upon which the sunlight
glinted now and then, but which was
itself invisible. These were the wings
of the aeroplane, he knew, composed
of the transparent cellulose substance
used In Europe. The streak, painted
to match, the sky, was the body of the
plane, armored, undoubtedly, and
freighted with bombs. The height at
which the machine was flying indicat
ed at first that the pilot's purpose was
reconnaissance; he was well above the
smoke of the shells, but as Wendell
watched, the plane suddenly swooped
downward, circled and dropped again.
Other guns ten or a score of them,

the plane with' bursting shells. The
machine dashed through them and
swooped still lower, and, turning and
coming with the wind, flew at the
navy yard with marvelous speed.
"Mr. Wendell," a voice inquired. "Mr.
Fulton and Mr. Ross?"
Wendell and his companions were in
uniform, having made the change on
the train; their orders, telegraphed to
the train, were to report at once aboard
the Arizona. A boy, in ensign's uni
form, was addressing them. "I've come
