the wrong, also failed to do so with-

Upon comparison of the existing ap-
portionment, made in 1887, with that
which should have been made in 1897,
It will be seen that since the last named
year seven counties-rAlachua, Duval,
Escambia, Hillsborough, Jackson, Leon
and Marion have each had one less rep-
resentative than they were entitled to;
while seven other counties- Bradford,
Hamilton, Lake, Nassau, Polk, St.
Johns and Santa Rosa-have each had
one more Representative than they
were entitled to. In the remaining
thirty-one counties no change in the
representation would have occurred.
The Legislature of 1906 will have, if
It needs one, something like a plausible
excuse for again postponing the per-
formance of the plainly defined consti-
tutionrl duty imposed upon and disre-
rarded by the Legislature in 1807.
This-is the year for the taking of the
State census required by Section 5, Art-
icle VII, of the Constitution. That
census may Indicate a slight modifica-
tion of the apportionment which should
have been made in 19s7, and it will be
very easy to again postpone the matter
until 1907, thus making the interval be-

of ten years, and prolonging the injus-

history of the State is that it does not

The Jasper News, referring to the
Wailes-Beard claim, says:
It seems to us that the $25,000 offered
by the last Legislature as a compromise
would be sufficient to pay the claimants,
and pay them well, for the service ren-
dered the State in collecting the Indian
War Claim, and would be In justice to
the people; but to pay the amount
claimed (the 15 per cent) is beyond all
reason, it seems to us and an Injustice
to the people of Florida. The Legisla-
ture of 1908 devoted a great deal of
time to this matter, and that broad-
minded body of men were not in favor of
paying the full claim, but proposed and
were willing to allow the claimants for
services rendered the State by them the
sum of $25 000. which would have, it
seems, amply repaid them for their
Like many others who have failed to
view this matter from the standpoint of
the actual legal rights of the claimants,
and have persisted in regarding the
claimants as objects of public charity to
whom the people of the State are under
no sort of lawful obligation, The News
forgets or ignores the fact that this
claim is one based upon a plain and in-
defeasible contract, duly executed and
long acquiesced in by the people of the
State, whose interests were lawfully
represented by their Godernors, who
executed the contract, and whose acts
In executing it and in subsequent ratifi-
cations of it have, during a long series
of years, stood unimpeached and u=re-
The enactment of the law of the last
session granting the sum of 265,000 in
full settlement of the claim was, in ef-
fect, as denominated by The News, a
mere "offer by the Legislature as a
compromise." Had it been accepted,
that body might well have taken pride
in a step which would have saved to the
people the handsome sum of $188,878.79
actually and lawfully due from them.
But the fact must b, remembered that
this "offer of a compromise" was never
accepted by the other parties to the
contract, and hence the matter stands
precisely as if the law had never been
Another very important fact should
not be overlooked, via: That this claim,
resting upon a valid and unentested
contract is, in effect, already adjudi-
catled. Unless the calculation is wrong.
no court in Christendom would deny the
claimants a judgment for the entire
amount. The only reason for asking
the Legislature for an apot letkit of
the amount, a ascertained by simple
computation, is that under our system
of government a State cannot bo maed
by an individual claimant.

A small group of Federal war veter-
ans in Wisconsin have distinguished
themselves by uttering a protest against
the proposed restoration of captured
Confederate battlefags. According to
the dispatches, they eonflned their pro-
test to the Alabama flags, but the prin-
ciple is the same, and a bad one it is.
The perpetuation of the vindictive "war
spirit" is a sentiment whick isin sharp
contrast with the spirit of aoge.
It is a pity that Governor Broward's
address at DeFuniak Springs last Sat-
urday could not have been reported in
full. In the course of it, as stated by
the Pensacola Journal, he referred at
length to the Everglade drainage pro-
ject, which he explained in detail. Flor-
idians everywhere are deeply interested
in this matter, and would be grateful to
the Governor for an authoritative expo-
sition of the plan which he has in mind
concerning it.

In passing 'sentence the judge re-
marked tha this wast the last time
there will be such a light sentence for
this crime In his court. He says that
there can be no more peonage for Gebt
In his district.
Maess. Osborne and Lawrence, who
we afqon; the attorneys for the ac.
cusod, stood out to the last during the
consultation of the lawyers as to the
advisability of pleading guilty. They
wanted the case fought to the end.
Just before the plea was entered Mr.
Osborne asked the court to have his
Airm's name stricken from the list of
attorney's representing the defense.
This was done.
The defendants were charged lan
four Indictments with selling a color.
ed woman against whom no warrant
wea issued to McRae Brothers for a
consideration of $50. The woman, it
was alleged, was advised by the sher-
SIff and attorney that she bad been
convicted and fined, and served nine
months In the McRae convict camp,
,other charge is that the defendants
-took from Jail two boys convicted of
stealing a watermelon, who had been
sentenced without a fine alternative,
and sold them to MicRaes for $65. The
MoRaes pleaded guilty at the last term
and were fined $1,000 each.
George P. Hart and M. H. Cobb,
two negro physicians of Waycross,
were also put on trial to answer charg-
es of peonage. Both pleaded guilty,
whereupon they were sentenced by
Judge Emory Speer to pay a fine of
$1,000 each, $700 of which is remitted
during good behavior. Cobb paid
hja fine and Hart went to jail.
It was shown that they lyad pro-
cured the arrest of a negro girl upon
claims for professional services ren-
dered and had sold her Into a condi.
tion of practical servitude. .The judge
told the defendants that it was bad
enough when white men act toward
negroes as the defendants were shown
to have acted toward the girl. but that
it ;., worse when negroes are guilty
of such injustice toward members of
their race. He said he was afraid
that had the two doctors remained in
Africa they would have been in tde
slave business, stealing blacks from
one village and selling them e!se.
where as slaves.

from its tate fuitds about $200,000 for
road Improvements, which was only
one-third of the amount expended for
the same purpose, as about $S00.,00 of
the total expense incurred was borne
by the counties in which the roads
were built. The State now has aboni
2XX) miles of modern rounds, which is
more than any other State, though

point of area. Besides, petitions for
over IWX) miles more of new roads are
awaiting the approval of Ithe Rond
Commlssioner. A large portion of
them will be built during the year
which has Jusit begun.

followed the fashion of Immediate re-

the man and woman to "marry over

doubtless find Imitators among the

Tbh report made to Presildent e00o-
volt by Commialioner Gartled sI real-
ly the first o1cial statement of the a-
tual conditions of the beef buslonas
that has been made. and as all the coa-
elusions arrived at are based, as bhowa
by him, upon data oMflally obtalaned
there seems to be no reason why they
should not be regarded as reliable and
ta all respects trustworthy.
This report shows .why the price ot
both cattle and beef advanced to ttW
highest level ever known after the
abort corn crop of 1001. an States that
because of the decrease in number of
cattle and also in decreased weight,
"the high prices of beef which caused
so much complaint among conaumner
at this time were attributable wholly
to these abnormal cattle prices."
All the figures of the live weight and
live cost of nil dressed beef cattle were
obtained from actual killing records,
and all Information of every kind ob-
tained by the Commissioner was volun-
tarily and freely offered by the pack-
era, all books of record and papers
connected with the business having
been placed at his disposal.
To make certain that the results of
the Investigatlon should be absolutely
accurate, the Commissioner states that
a double method of ascertaining profits
was adopted, and, without going into
detail here, it is found that the conclu-
sion arrived at shows an average profit
of 9T cents per head. The Commie-
sloner says "the close parallelism in
the results of the two methods of as-
certalnf:ag the profits counfrms cam
pletely the correctness of the general
conclusions." It is clearly established
that "Western packers do not control
more than half of the byef supply of
the United States," the conclusion of
the Commissioner being that the busl-
naes done by them amounts to "about
45 per cent." of tho total slaughter of
the country.
The whole report Is extremely Inter-
eating and well worthy of careful pe-
rusal. As an offle:nl report It may be
regarded as worthy of confidence, and
It certainly leads the reader to the
conclusion arrived nt by the Commis-
sioner when he states that "the capl-
talization of none of these concerns sla
excessive as colnpl)ired with its actual
Investment." and that from thorough
and rigid examination of original en-
tries in books nnd papers to which he
had access there was alco "indirect evi-
dence that the profits of the packers
in their beef blsinhess are less than il
frequently supposedd" as shown by
comparison between the total profits
and the total amount of sales.
