ASKED TO PAY THB DRAINAGE 'TAX.

Aythe ooplie ving In these counties
idor, other words, in those part of
tI otUe Included In the 1tee laid out as
the drainage dstrie are the only one who will
be to the drainage tax for draining
Pa.-I mean Just tuat, Algernon, and nothing
Algy.-Butm pa, Mr, Beard saiodd that the Trus.
eas, acting as Drainaoge Oomlssoners, epuld lay
out drainage distrieto all over the State; in Be.
cambia County, or In Masdson County, and could
collect the tax and Use tha money tfor draining
the 'verglades. Can they do It?
Pa.-Ok, yes, my son, they can do it al right,
but the Qetlon is, WiL they do it, and the an.
aWer is, TH Y WONT DO IT
Algy.-Why won't they do it?
Pa.-They wont do It because it would be an
mprper, unjust and unreasonable thing or them
to dot People who are elected to ofme as a rule
are disposed to do the right thing and will not use
the power conferred on them by the people, Im.
properly. Public officers have a great deal of
power conferred on them which they oould misuse.
In order to have government elective it is neces-
amry to clothe exe auve offers with power.
Alg,-You mean by this, pa, that the people
are obliged to trust the men whom they put in of.
floe to a considerable extent?
Pa.-I mednt jlut that, Algy, and in the case of
these Dranage ComUlslopers the thing that will
prevent them from laying out drainage districts
in places where drainage is not needed and collect.
ing the tax and d*uplng it Into the Everglades, is
the "sme thing at prevents the Tax Assessors of
the various oountle from Increasing the asseem
meant on the property of the people they dont like,
and lowing it on the property of people tey do
like. It's the ame thin that prevents the Coun.
ty 0ommlssiopers from mtsappropriatlng money
entrusted to their are. It's the ame thing that
prevents the County Treasnres, or the State
Treasurer, from running off with te public
money. It's the ame thing that prevents the
Governor from withholding appointment from
people who are seleetd In the primaries for ap.
positive offoese whom he don't like, and giving
them to people whom he does. In other ord It
is the thing called oonelenoe, which prevents
men from dn wrog even though they have the
power to do It is taeoo thing that solety is
based on, without which there would be so uw
clety, no goveramept, and no anything else, but
anarchy, riot and oatndlon.
Algy-Well, I think Im satied d now that it is
only the people owning land In the drainage die.
triot, Includinsg the Bverglades who are 1g to
be asked to pay for draining the !vtglade.
What I want to know now tis, who thee people
Pa.-Well. my son, these people are dawed.
like Gaul, Intothre rt. if the lag lad
sydlecates, who own 800,000 series of a1 In the
dralagen district, who will be called on to put up
0,000 at.okels; second the Trtstaes, holding
the land which belongs to the people, wh Ill beo
called on to put up 38,,00O niels t the
3,8.00O acres which they hold; third, the lnd-
vidual lead owners, ownibg from 0 ares p to
8T,000 acres each, who will be called os to pes UP
4 Ndkels and up to 7,6000 nickel. M UNe to
the umber of acre that each man may pw.
~y.-Why pa, according to this showa te
IpJtnual land owners will be called ot p
only a mall part of this drainage tax and the
large land syndicates will be called on to pay
more than half of it.
Pa.-Again, my son, you have struck it right.
It is only the people who own the lands in the
drainage district who will be called on to pay for
draining the Everglades, and it naturally follows
that thoee who own the MOST LAND will pay the
MOST TAX. And six land syndicates have con-
leased that they owned over half of the land to be
Algy-But, pa, these large synlatcates and these
individual land owners acquired these lands from
the Trustee. Do you. think it fair that they
should be taxed to drain them after the Trustees
deeded them to them?'
Pa.-There might be *ome doubt about that,
Algy, ift It were not for the fact that the Act of the
Legislature putting the title of these lands in the
'Trustees, and the decisions of the Supreme Court
of the State interpreting this Act, ALL SAT that
these VERY LANDS ARE SUBJECT TO THE
DEBTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE TRUS.
'TEES and the obligation, the paramount obliga-
ton, the first obligation, of the Trustees is to
drain. This is a special reason why the people
owning lands to be benefitted by drainage should
pay taeir share of the cost FROM WHICH
THERE IS NO ESCAPE, and is a reinforcement
of the general proposltton that lands specially
benefitted by a great public work, should contri.
bute their just share of the cost of such work.
Algy.-All right, pa, I think I see that now. Ill
not be bothered any more with doubts about the
whole State paying for drainage and the justice of
tioSe people owning the lands which are benefit.
ted paying for their share of the work, but, it
seems to me that this proposed Constitutional
Amendment puts a whole lot of power in the
hands of five men. Do you think that that is ad.
Pa.-What do you mean by putting a whole lot
Algy.-I mean that the five Drainage Commls.
stones, if the Constitutional Amendment is adopt.
ed, will have the power to spend the money de.
rived from the drainage tax just as they please,
and are not required to give bond.
Pa.-That's true, my son, they are not required
to give bond, but all their acts are the acts of pub.
lie of01ials which are open to the inspection of
any one Is whoee mind there should arlse a quest
tion about the proper expenditure of this money,
and the proof of Improper expenditure being very
easy to obtain, it would be an eay matter for
ANY CITIZEN to make afdavit which would
CAUSB THB ARREST, TRIAL AND, IP FOUND
GUILTY. THB IMPRISONMENT, of any one or
all of those publie servants who should betray
their trust. And then again, the whole crowd
of them have to come up for reelection every four
years and the people can hold them ecoumteble
for their acts at the polls as well as at the bar of
Algy.-But is it not an unusual thing for men
to be vested with asomuch power s thee fvye men
seem to be vested with?
PL-No. not unusual, Ally. On the contrary,
quite usual. No gra public work is ever under.
taken unles the omers chosen to carry it out are
vested with conslerabie power, certainly with
power sfSint to able them to earr out the
work effetually. A notable ase of recent hap
pending was that In which Congres veted the
President of the United States with extraordinary
powers over the Panama (aal. It gave to him
the power tO appoint the spn and to
clothe them with as mu power vernments
of countries have. The Board Of 4 Trustees
of the city of Jacksonville have extraordinaryy
powers. They are vested with pticaly all the
functions of city government. Whqn Galveston
was destroyed and had to be rebuilt the men com-
posing the Commilssion in charge fo t'e work were
vested with extraordinary powers, et in excess of
those which the Drainage Compd-lsoners have, or
will have if this Constitutional Amwndment is
adopted. In fact 'It is quite the ctice to vest
men in charge of a constructive work with extra.
Algy.-If that is the case, pa, why Is it that so
much is made of the extraordinary power sought
to be conferred by the adoption of this Constitu-
Pa.-I'l. answer your question, my son, by ask.
ing who is making so much of it?
Algy-Well, the Times.Union for one, Mr. John
Beard In his speech for another, the Jacksonville
Literary Bureau for a taird.
Pa.-Ah ha! Now I'll ask you another ques-
tion. What is the Times.Union, who is John
Beard, and what is the Jacksonville Literary Bu-
Algy.-Well, I'll say first the Times-Union is a
Pa-Yes, my son, it is a newspaper in the sense
that it is printed on NEWS PAPR but in no
other sense. It is owned by three railroads and
its policies are controlled by thqm. It prints
the stuff they want printed, JUST AS THEY DI-
RECT IT SHALL BE PRINTED, which is accord-
ing to how THEIR INT 'tSB.S MAY BE
SERVED, without regard to the merits of any
Algy.-Well, next I'll say that Mr. John Beard
Is a lawyer of ability and a public man of known
probity, and a private citien of good character.
Pa-All of which Is true, Algy, but when Mr.
Beard attempted to talk apinst the drainage pro.
position he was very short of material and was
obliged to make much of the little he had, and this
question of too much power was skillfully used by
Aigy-Lastly I will say that the Jacksonville
Literary Bureau is an institution organized for
the purpose of sending out material In opposition
Pa.-Right you are, my son. It surely was or-
ganized for the purpose you name, and do not
overlook the main point, which is, that the people
who organized the Literary Bureau and who are
paying its expenses are the VERY PEOPLE WHO
OwN THESE LANDS, three and a third million
acres of them, which lying in the drainage district
ARE SUBJECT TO THE DRAINAGE tax, which
tax, my son, THEY ARE TRYING IARD TO GET
OUT OF PAYING.
Algy-One other question, pa I hear that Gov-
ernor Broward said in his speech in Pensacola
that the Trustees could raise money to pay the
State's share of the cost of drainage by selling
land to Bill Smith and Tom Jones, etc., as fast as
the lands were drained.
Pa.-That's what he said, Algy.
Alty.-I hear that Mr. Beard aild that if the
Trustees did sell lands to Tom Jones and Bill
Smith, etc., they would do a wrong thing because
the Bill Smiths and the Tom Joneses WOULD
BE EJECTED FROM THE LANDS BY THE
RAILROADS in case the suits which are now
pending for these lands went against the Trus-
tees. Don't you think it would be wrong to do
Pa.-I certainly do, my son, I surely think it
would be wrong, if Mr. John Beard and others who
argue like him talked trom a thorough knowledge
of the conditions. But they either don't do this,
or, having the thorough knowledge, they fall to
make use of it. TH 'irULxrwIS HAVE THE
TITLE TO THESE LANDS. The railroads claim
tnem under legislative grants., NO LBGISLA-
TIVE GRANT IS SUFFPIIENT TO GET TITLE
TO THESE LANDS. TH TITLE MUST COME
FROM THE TRUSTEES. All the legislative
grants. under which the railroads claim, grant
those lands which HAVB NOT BBN PRE-
VIOUSLY SOLD BY THE Trustees. The Trus-
tees have never reoognised the priority of grants,
nor uave the railroads claiming under them In-
sisted upon priority. They have always been
ready, AND ARE READY TODAY TO ACCEPT
GIVE THEM. If the Trustee desire to sell to
somebody else lands that have not been located by
the railroads, they can glee as tltl to pur-
chasers WHOM THBY 8ELECTa they cU to
the railroad grantees WHOM THB LU1ISLA-

Ww, the English ideal was quit* another stowy;
Weqy had experienced the re nuftg llusmetaow
man civilisation, and were a Christian nation,
while the Danes who were the descendents of those
fierce old Goths who lived on the shores of the
Euxine, centuries before the Christian Era, were
pagan fanatics. These barbaric Instincts were but
too apparent in the first few years of Canute's
reign, but he seems to have been a great student
of the public pulse, and becoming conscious of
the higher ideals of those about him, he quickly
adjusted himself to them, and adopted English
laws and usages, as well as the religion which he
Carlyle thinks but for lack of years, Canute
migat well have been the Charlemagne of Eng-
land and the North. In a few vivid strokes of his
pen, he thus describes him:
"A most nimble, sharp-striking, clear-thinking,
prudent and effective man, who regulated this dis-
membered and distracted England in Its church
matters, and Its state matters, like a real king.
He had a standing army (House Carla) who were
well paid, well drilled and disciplined, capable of
quenching insurrection or breakage of the peace,,
This, of course, save the king unlimited authority,
and might have made a tyrant of a weaker m'a.
A standing army has done this for many kings be-
tore and since, but Justice seemed with Canute
to be a ruling passion, though of late development.
But to go back a few years, Sweyn conquered
England in 1014, and dying, his son Canute com.
pleted the conquest of 1016. He, however, was not
allowed to reign over the whole of England at first,
as the olaons protested so vigorously that the
kingdom was divided, Canute reigning over the
Northern part. and Edmund "Ironsides" having the
Saxon, or Southern part, with the understanding
that the one surviving should inherit the whole
realm. Needless to say poor Ironsides succumbed
to the inevitable rule of "the survival of the ft
test" and though history does not positively a
s@rt that Canute applied the rule, yet there is lit
tie doubt upon the subject, for he was at that time
a relentless, head-strong youth, and after receivtng
graciously the promises of fealty from poor 6Iron-
sideesubjects, he slew many of them, not even
sparnX those of the kins, household. "Re who
brings me the head of ON of mine e.e.d4e" a-
Canute, "shall be dearer than a br&othr,"andMas
Dickens puts it, he mo together pretty Me
famy of "dewe others."
He had a great Inclination to kill, around and
Edward, two children of "Ironsldes/' but decided
to send them to Sweden, and have them quietly
murdered there. This, however, failed through
the merit of the Swedish king who treated the
boys most kindly.
Now, in Normandy there were adled twro" -
era of "Ironsides," and their uncle, the Duke of
Normandy, might one day olaimn the throne for
t.iem. This gave Canute much uneasiness, but his
fears were soon.allayed, by the Duke proposing a
marriage between the king and the boys mother,
the ex-nueen Emma, "The PloWer of Normandy."
This offer was gladly accepted, and from the day
of his marriage, the taming process seems to have
started. He soon after embraced the Christian
religion, and became much beloved by his subjects,
even the Saxons.
One of the Mediaeval legends run, that Canute
one day became disgusted with the obsequious
flattery of his followers, and eauing his chair to
be set on the sea shore, pretend teo omand the
waves, as the tide rose, not to we the edge of his
robe, tor the land whereon he sat asi his own.
The tide, of course, followed Naure' ,relentless
law, and turning to his follower he drV a lesson
from It, saying to the flattering ones: "Whht Is
the might of earthly kings, compared to the might
of the Creator who could saY unto the sea, 'Thus
far shalt thou go and no furt "

"Can you throw any light on the situation at

anything the matter at Jacksonville," was the re*
ply, "except an absolute lack of organisation. The

impetfestly kept and instead of being able to lto

find that a 'change of heart' is necessary before

It haa become a habit for newspapers of a certain character in this coun-
try to refer to Williama Sdolp Heart as a yellow journalist whenever his
ame is montiloed In eooection wit a public office.
This is give out as a term of reproach with the evident Intention of dis-
crediting Mr. Hearst
The New York Sun is fond of dAng this and so is the Florida Times-
This brings to ua the reflection that there are two kinds of yellow Journ-
als In this uatry.
One kind gets its saffron tint froa close assoolatlon with $S gold pieces.
The other kind 1 yellow due to the uae of this expression to denote ex-
traeme a-n ,ntalim
The Time-Union and the Now York Sun and a number of other news-
papes which, like them, are owned by rleh men or corporations, belong to
the flirt dlas.
The New York Amerian, which sla owned by William Randolph Hearst,
belongs to the second class.
We think both kinds of yellow Jurnals are bad.
But there Is no doubt in our mind as to which is the worst
Mr. Hearst's kind of yellow journal plays up murder stories in big head-
lines and adopts the most extreme measures to pander to what we think is
a depraved taste in hunting after sensation, but the Hearst kind of yellow
journal is persistently, consistently and Insistently FIGHTING THE BAT-
TLES OF THE PEOPLE.
It makes a big sensation out of the oppression of the people by the coal
trust and by the gas trust and by the Ice trust. It gets much advertising
out of these fights, but THE PEOPLE WHO PAY THE GAS BILLS ARE
Because of these fights when the poor man goes to buy his coal he
realizes the effect of them BY THE INCREASED SIZE OF HIS PILE OF
COAL. On account of the yellowness of Mr. Hearst when the panting dwel-
ler In the tenements takes his nickel in his hand to buy his ice HE GETS A
It wap sensational, it was decidedly yellow, for Mr. Hearst to print I1r
big headlines the fact that he had seat a car load of sewing machines into
Jacksonville after the fire; but the POOR WOMEN who had lost their means
of livelihood GOT THE MACHINES JUST THE SAME.
It was extremely yellow for Mr. Hearst to print his name In big head-
lines as the sender of the first relief train into Ban Francisco bearing pro-
visions for the starving multitudes made destitute by the double disaster,
the earthquake and the fire; BUT THE HUNGRY WERE FED, AND THE
NAKED WERE CLOTHED.
It Is sensational and likewise yellow for Mr. hearst to parade the fact
in his newspapers day after day that the Hearst bread wagons are stationed
In different parts of the city, and he no doubt has an eye to the main chance
when he agurea that this free distribution of coffee and sandwiches adver-
tises his newspapers; but the starving, homeless wretches who apply to
these bread wagons AND ARE NOT TURNED AWAY get the benefit of this
yellow streak in Mr. Hearst's newspapers.
However sensational Mr. Hearst and other yellow journals are THEY
ARE DONG GOOD IN THE WORLD.
But the other kind of yellow jou talks, the kind that reflects the sheen of
the piled up gold pleces-
What good do they do In the world? What is their mission?
They do so god; their mission is to accomplish the work and to carry
out the objects of those who, HAVING MUCH, WANT MORE.
They are maintained for an entirely selfish purpose.
They adopt the guise of an educator of the .people for the pUrpose of
educating them wrong.
They clothe their purposes with the garment of a public enlightener,
and persistently fall to enlighten the public except on the lines that the in-
terest of their owners lie.
They adopt the FORM of newspapers AND CAREFULLY EXCLUDE
Yen, we think that both kinds o( yellow Journals are bad, but there is
SOME GOOD in the sensational yellow Journals, and there is NO GOOD in
the gold tinted yellow Journals.
And when the gold tinted kind, with unctuous piety, condemns the sen-
sation tinted kind, it affords an example of impudent hypocrisy that is rarely
equalled and never surpassed. A
Now that the Cuban revolutionists have gotten down to work and a real
revolution is in progress, for the ninety-fifth time since Columbus, sugges-

The fleet should be accompanied by a sufficient number of troop ships to

Then let another fleet, this time of freight boats, be sent down with
rifles, powder, shells, and all other mutiMbi of war, including all the canned
beef that was left from the Spanlash-Amerloan War, and let this ammunition
be supplied freely to BACH SIDE in Oube.
Let the hlp o' war remain on guard to see that none of the natives

The Gold Yellow Journal
We received a twenty-two word telegraphic night dispatch one day thi;
week containing the alleged information that the Southern delegation to \v
J. Bryan's reception was somewhat miffed over the announcement that Bryan
intended to declare himself in favor of Federal ownership of railroads, which
would be taken by the Southerners to mean the doing away with Jim Crow
We do not know why this message was sent to us, because we have
made no arrangements with any one to send us telegraphic dispatches. On
the face of it it looks as if some news agency, operated in the interest of
people who have the money to pay for news agencies, was trying to create
discord In the ranks of the Democratic party which would take the place of
the enthusiasm which now pervades it, over Bryan.
We pronounce this piece of "news," which was thrust upon us, A FALSE
The Bradentown Herald recently quoted incorrectly a editrial expres-
sion from this paper and "The Kitchen Entertainer," edited by Willie Ring-

We offer, by way of comparison, a few flguree from Florida to show that
the $136 per acre which Texas thinks worthy an advertisement In a Chicago
newspaper would be no more than car fare to the Florida farmer who will
take advantage of his opportunities.
Tobacco in Gadsden County, from real figures, brings $600 an acre; to.
matoes on the East Coast have brought as much as $1,400 an acre; celery In
the vicinity of Sanford is worth at its best as high as $2,000 an acre. We
nave not before us the figures on pineapples at Orlando or potatoes at Hast,

have quoted fancy figures on tomatoes and on celery, but we offer them to

price on potatoes In Texas. There Is hardly a crop in Florlds which will not
produce better results than those advertised from Texas with the same ex*
penditure of money and labor.

The Sensational Yellow Journal
There is an editor down in Palatka who when called answers to the
name of Russell, and who derives the principal part of his notoriety from the
fact that he is referred to as the editor of "the other paper" in Palatha, and
who has lately achieved a little prominence by being nominated for the Leg*
islature in the primaries.
We notice that this man takes an occasional fly at this Journal, in a
vague, indefinite sort of way. We rather enjoy a tilt with one of our
brethren, provided his weapons be worthy of our steel. Some day we hope
this Russell person will say something about us definite enough to justify us
In taking notice of it.
We assert, without fear of suoessful contradiion, that the reaemt death
of the Acting Military Governor-General of Warsaw will tombh the heart of
more kinsmen than the death of any man which has occurred in resent
times. His name was VON UARULARSKI and his rela ves are scattered to
every clime, Inhabit every country, live Into every State and dwell in every
city on the face of the globe. Great will be the mouraing that will flow

Hungy Call, CGwrmim
Some time ego we called upon the Governor ot t1a State to exercise
the power, which e believe is vested, in bl, to call the two members
of the Railroad omnml *on of lorida now on vacation to do t elr duty.
In our news columns today, we show that the need for the pImfpt t.04

hearing nla Jacksonville. He is now ready to recommend to the Commtelel
a line of action. '
This Is not a matter like the loss of a trunk, or. the building of a depot,
but Is a matter that concerns the buslnes life of a lare number of people

On account of the congested condition In Jacksonville cities In other
States, notably Brunswick and Savannah, ARB REACHING OUT FOR
FLORIDA BUSINBSS, which belongs to Jacksonville.
The trouble extends over the entire State. To a leader degree perhaps,
but still to an appreciable extent, the business of Tampa and of Oala and of
Live Oak and of all the other cities in Florida, is being damaged by this
Inability of the railroads to handle the business ofqred them.
We think that matters that are engaging the attention of the Governor
are important matters. We are mainly in accord with him on his drainage
proposition, but we believe that the Governor should not let this or any other
proposition ABSORB HIS ENTIRE ATTENTION.
A little of the gubernatorial attention directed toward the railroadd Com-
mission IS BOTH ADVISABLE AND NECESSARY.

Our "steamed" contemporary, the Citrus County Chronicle, got very mad
at us last week because we sald that the Governor did right when he removed
the Sheriff of Citrus County who failed to protect his 'prisoner from the
hands of a mob.
Mr. Gilhooley, true to his Celtic patronymic, waxes wroth at us and
handles the English language somewhat astelessly when he refer to us.
In fact, he Is RBAL RUDE, and likewise harsh, usiag lueh Words as
"palpably fale statements," "short on norve," "miserably futile attempts to
uphold the Governor," which with reckless abandon he launches at our de-
fenceless and devoted head.
We say to the editor of the Citrus County Chrobnile that we got our In-
formation from an inspection of the records In the Statehouse which con*
misted of the report of the coroner's Jury and the report 6f the commander of
the troops. These reports are open to him and we invite him to come to
Tallahassee and Inspect them, feeling sure thit when he does so HE WILL
BB OBLIGED TO CHANGE HIS OPINION about this matter.
The editor also sets reckless and makes us say whatwe didn't say.
We said that Jeog Davis, one of the men who put on a mask and went
out to get the jail keys, which were oonvenleatly placed in the safe of the
village apothecary shop, which safe was carelessly left unlocked, was
ERSTWHILE editor of the Citrus County Chronles '
This Gilbooley man says we said that Jeff Davis IS editor of the Citrus
Webster's International Dictionary, for sale by all book sellers at $10i
gives the definition of the word "erstwhile" as "formerly, heretofore."
We know that Mr. Davis was formerly editor of the Citrus County Chon.
Ille because we saw it so printed In that powerful journal.
In the meantime we will: attribute the hasty obullition from the editor
of the Citrus County Chronicle to the fact that he got his Irish up and *e
hope that by this time he ha suboeedted In getting it down.
Some smart person made a foolish attempt last week to Induse us to dise
continue the publiatle of Patrick MUphys letter by sending to thia oAoe

Shortly after the great transontinental Pacific

St. Louls. Things had bee somewhat quiet for a
few weeks and he became esOeess, when one omrn.
lun he found a note in his mail directing him per

of the army on route to pay the troops at some of
the frontier postseand camps had been robbed of
75,000 In current eoin of the realm. Most of the
troops at this time were busy keeping hostile In.

- What Insurance Companies Pay- -
Some one has said that a governing idea with
Uncle Sam in levying taxes for general revenue
purposes is "to secure the maximum amount of
feathers with the minimum amount of squalling."
The same idea,-perhaps, is doeolupot In State
A growing'source of income to the State is con-
tributed by the insurance companies of various
kind that operate in the State.
The State Board of Insurance Commissioners
Is composed of the State Treasurer, Comptroller
and Attorney General. It has a general super-
vision over and is empowered to examine into the
amairs of all companies or Individuals doing or ap-
plying to do an insurance business In Florida.
under the law creating this board, before a cer*
.ieate is issued to a company to allow it to en-
gage nla business In Florida, a full statement of
the company's ocers, capital took, with a
schedule ao its asts and liabilities, sworn to un-
der oa.A by its manager or representative of its
offers, must be furnished to the State Treasurer.
No Insurance company or association not of the
State e"a obtain a certiicate unless It furnishes
proof that It Is possessed of at least o$60,000 In.
vested in United States or State bonds or other
bankable security. A company organised under
the laws of Florida can obtain a certicate of as.
thority upon furashiag prof that It owns and bas
actually nvted In United States or State hbeds
or other bankable security at least $35,000. When
a company falls to py judgment or Imposes adL
toles contrary to the law, the State asurer
required to revoke ts certificte.
Und. the proistoas of the license law of 1190
Insurance companies are taxed as follows:
Sec. 32. That each Insurance company, assoes.
tion, firm, or Individual doing budas In this
State including corporations or asoatla enw
gaged In the business of nsurlag accidents to the
person, acting as surety upon beads, guaraateing
the fidelity of employees, and IUsuring emple~ers
against liability for accident to employee, amd life
Insurance companies, shall pay to the State Treas.
ur a license tax of two hundred dollars; pate
glass Insurance companies shadl pay to the tat
Treasurer a license tax of fifty dollars; and to ad-
dlon thereto, each of said companies dolg bls
ness in this State shall, upoa the Sart d4 od Jaa-
nary matter the pasae of tis t ad on te first
day of each succeeding January thereafter pay to
the State Treasurer two per cent. upon the gross
amount of receipts of premiums from policy hold-
ers In this State.
Sec. 18. That each insurance company, or asso-
elation, mentioned in section twenty-two of this
act doing business In this State shall, on the first
day of October after the passage of this act, and
on the first day of each succeeding October, turn-
ish to the State Treasurer the name and address
of each agent or soliietor authorised to write lin-
surance in this State; for each local agent or so,
lioltor, each insurance company shall pay to the
State Treasurer a license tax of five dollars, and
it shall be the duty of the State Treasurer to
transmit to the County Tax Collector the name
and address of every such agent as resides re.
spectively in such county. Counties, cities and
towns may require a license tax of any such agent
not to exceed fifty per cent. of the State tax for
Sec. 24. That each insurance company shall pay
to the State Treasurer for each traveling agent
or solicitor doing business in this State, a license
tax of twentyrfive dollars for such agent. Coun.
ties, cities and towns may require from any such
traveling agent or solicitor a license tax of five
collars for each county he does business In.
This tax goes to the general revenue fund.
Under the provisions of the law governing in.
surmoe matters In the State all companies must
meet certain requirements. Occasionally a com-
pary attempts to do business without complying
with these formalitles. These are known as wild.
cat companies and are liable to prosecution in the
counties In which they operate.

TURE HAS SELECTED. All the claim that the
railroads have under these grants is for "lands lo-
cated somewhere and unsold." If the railroads
attempted, after the courts have declared their
grants to be valid, to oust Bill Smith and Tom
Jones, or any other person holding a ded from
the Trustes, a complete answer to their attempt
would be "these are not your lands because these
