Charges Against Deputy Osteen May
be Used as a Lever to Oust
Charges have been made to Gov Governor
ernor Governor Catts against Deputy Sheriff
Osteen, and the governor, in his cus
tomary autocratic manner, and with without
out without waiting to hear the other side of
the matter, has ordered Sheriff Gal Galloway
loway Galloway to discharge his deputy.
There is much difference in senti-
ment about Deputy Osteen
people criticise him severely,
say he is a brave and faithful officer.
Sheriff Galloway says he is a good
deputy that he is the best judge of
the qualifications of his deputies, and
he intends to stand by them. It is
generally believed that the move
against Osteen is simply a lever to
be used if possible to oust Sheriff
Public sentiment is practically
unanimous on one thing, and that is
whether Osteen be at fault or not the
governor has no right to order him
dismissed without a hearing, and that
the sheriff is right in demanding that
his deputy be allowed to present his
side of the case.

Sidney J. Catts, Governor.
From the Sheriff
Sheriff Galloway in reply sent the
following letter last night:
Ocala, Fla., Aug. 27, 1917.
Hon. Sidney J. Catts, Governor,
I am in receipt of your telegram in
structing me to discharge immediate
ly Deputy Osteen, on account of
charges preferred by E. P. Martin.
Osteen is under bond for the faithful
performance of his duties; so far as
I know or have reason to believe he
discharges those duties satisfactorily
to all except those of the calibre of
Martin. If charges are sent me
will make thorough investigation. If
well founded, Osteen will, be dis
charged immediately, but with due
respect to you he will not be dis
charged on account of complaint com
ing from no higher source than E. P,
Martin. I would suggest you investi
gate standing of Martin with the
members of the bar and the reputable
citizens of this city before taking his
charges seriously. I try to enforce
all laws fully and impartially, and I
believe I have the co-operation of
Osteen, and the rantings of Martin,
who is an intermeddler of other peo
ples' affairs, does not change this be
lief. Martin has made the boast that
he is your personal representative in
this section, but I believe, and certain

dictate the policies of the officers of
this county or have even a voice in
that of the office of governor of Flor

should have been indicted of perjury
in a matter before him. I do not un

CLARK AND CATTS
Congressman Clark made a mistake
in challenging Gov. Catts to a debate.
We think that in future men who have
a regard for the rules laid down forer, or a man like Pershing, for that
the discussion of public affairs among jmatter. is guilty of something and
jgentleman had better speak of Gov.
Catts strictly in the third person.
The controversy started in the ap-
pointment of the governor's son, Sid-1
ney J. Catts Jr., to the command of
Company B, P'irst Regiment. Young

the company, but his appointment

It was easy for the governor to

and of course he isn't going to hunt
up Catts to give the latter a chance
to carry out a silly threat. Catts
would not have threatened Clark if
the two had been in the same room.
Poor Florida! She has a governor
who is making her the laughing stock

office has comparatively only begun.
LITTLE GROUP OF WILLFUL MEN
One of the phrases coined by Pres President
ident President Wilson that has stuck was his
characterization of the Senate ob obstructionists
structionists obstructionists as "a little group of
willful men." The little group on that
occasion was opposing the arming of
American merchantmen; it opposed
the entrance of the United States
into the war; it has tried to delay or
defeat every piece of legislation that
is designed to hurt Germany, and
will probably be able to obstruct until
the end. Of course, if these men
could be accused of treason they
could be impeached and probably
shot. Senator Lewis, of Illinois, a
strong supporter of President Wilson,
says that these men are not traitors;
they are merely obstructionists, and
since the law of the United States
does not regard obstructionists as
criminals, there appears to be no hope
of properly dealing with them.
An Ex-Popular Hero
Easily the most prominent of the
group is Senator Bob LaFollette, of
Wisconsin. His latest performance
was to propose that the United States
should now declare what it is fighting
for, and that all the Allies should
chip in to a common fund to be given
Germany in exchange for the evacua evacuation
tion evacuation of Belgium. For many years La LaFollette
Follette LaFollette has been considered one of
the leading public men in the country.
He was a republican, but became a
progressive. On more than one oc- j
casion booms for a presidential nom
ination have been launched in La La-Follette's
Follette's La-Follette's interests. A promising re republican
publican republican boom was punctured by La LaFollette
Follette LaFollette when, invited to address the
newspaper publishers of the United
States, he proceeded to tell them that
hey were a gang of grafters. The
next day it was explained in his be
half that he had suffered a nervous
breakdown, or had suddenly gone
crazy or sometmng. mat setuea
LaFollette, however. In 1912 he
came very near getting the progres
sive nomination. At least he would
have won it had not Roosevelt been
in the neighborhood.
. Eye on the Presidency
LaFollette represents a state where
there is a very large German element,
and he calculates upon his obstruc
tionist tactics being approved at
home, but after all his eye is on the
presidency again. He has come to
the conclusion, as a writer in the New
York Times Sunday Magazine says,
that this war is going to become un
popular and that by opposing it from
the outset he will eventually come to
be regarded as the greatest states,
man of his day and may get a nomi
nation for the presidency. LaFollette,
in other words, is looking out for
himself rather than for the kaiser.
His chief lieutenant is Gronna, of
North Dakota. They sit together and
exchange whispers, at least LaFol LaFollette
lette LaFollette exchanges his own whispers foi
the assenting silence of Gronna. The
latter does what LaFollette tells him.
It is said that he doesn't know what
any of these national or international
questions mean. He is a common
cheap-skate, who fears that the war
is going to cost him some money, and
therefore he is against it.
Honest, But Ignorant
Senator Stone, though a strong
pro-German and pacifist, and perhaps
the most conspicuous opponent of the
war in the early days, has not sup supported
ported supported the obstructionists in the past
couple of months. He comes from a
strong German-American rtate, Mis Missouri,
souri, Missouri, and votes probably wi'h his eye
on re-election. His colleague, Reed,
opposes the government because he
wa for many jears a prose ruting at
torney, and can never rid his mind of
;the conception that a man like Hoov
j must be exposed and thwarted. He is
j said to be honest and to mean well.
j Hardwick, of Georgia, is a man of
somewhat similar stamp in that, he,
too, is honest and means well. But
'for him Georgia is the whole of the
j civilized world. France and Belgium

regarded as a joke by every one who

That is to say that if Mr. Crosby
or Mr. Light, who represented this
county in the legislature did not sup support
port support the measures Mr. Catts wanted
passed, he sent Mr. Carter to "hold
their feet to the fire." We do not
know just what Catts means by hold holding
ing holding people's feet to the fire. We
know that for the executive to bring
any pressure to bear on a legislature,
except by his advice for it to supply
what he considers a public need, has
always been denounced a particularly
dirty variety of rotten politics. And
to appoint a man to office as a reward
for being a go-between in such a
matter, that is another.
We respectfully ask our readers if
A French physiologist described man as a f digestive tube with arrangements for locomotion and guidance.
It is commonly said that most people "dig their graves with their teeth." The disastrous effects of constipation

The best method for cleansing the whole
intestinal tract and urging the liver into activity is
to -take as much outdoor exercise as possible, drink
hot water before meals, and take a pleasant, laxative,
vegetable pill occasionally. Such a one is made up
of May-apple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap; made
into a sugar-coated pill that gives tone to the bowels.
This was first made nearly fifty years ago, and sold by
almost all druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
Such simple means will prevent auto-intoxication.

ally. occasionally. The kidneys are an eliminative organ and
are constantly working, separating the poisons from the blood. Uric acid backs up into the system, causing
rheumatism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other serious disturbances.
This can be avoided by stimulating the kidneys to increased action, and because of its tonic effect
on these organs I would advise any one to purchase Anuric (double or triple strength), which is to be had
nowadays at almost any drug store, and take it three times a day. Also drink hot water before meals
they think a man who will do such
things is fit to be governor?
As for Hotel Commissioner Carter,
we don't know how he feels about it,
but if we were in his place, after the
governor had written such a letter,
we would be ashamed to go into a
town and try to discharge the duties
of the office.

From that time until the dinner hour,
