riot have time to deal with. It will all
have its day.
Many have endeavored to differentiate
bItween the Jennings administration
and the Broward administration, but
the Board of State Institutions didn't
want it that way.
Theydo tell us that a candidate has
been announced from old Leon for the
next State Senate. Early! But then

If anybody can point to any serious
disadvantage undergone at Tallahassee,
to its moral or material interests dur-

reason of Leon county prohibition, no
one has yet pointed it out.
Last year, during the Senatorial pri-
mary campaign, accusations against the
Jennings administration weonregarded
by some as "merely campaign lies."
Now that the truth is being reluctantly
revealed, belief is easier.

The action of the Senate committee
to Investigate a rumor that "certain

work and contract of the State printer
was as fine a sample of "how not to do
it" as ever was seen here about.
The Tlie-Union's prediction that
the elosin hours of the Legislature
would be "marked with moderation,
conservatism and wisdom" came true.
Note the dignified and truly generous
action of both houses anent the screed
of the Board of State Institutions!
The Qunoy Herald and Era well says
that Attorney-General Ellis' contention,
when the new management of the hoe-
pital was appointed, that the board
should proceed to a vigorous invetigeua-

should have been heeded and adopted.

ITe, ausseo ll w require
the State of Ehuion and the
Board of Control created by the act, in
joint session, to determine the perma-
'met location of the University of the
State of Florida established by the act,
and in so doing smalll take into consid-
etdon the lands, property, buildings

call and as to population, as well as to
the needs and requirements of the asme
as prescribed in this act, and the pow-
er given thereunder, and the funds and
means at their command, or which may
naturally come to the control of the
State Board of Education for such pur.-
poae; and may, if advisable, after
careful codsideration, appropriate either
temporarily or permanently, the loca-
tion, lands, buildings, property and of-
feets of any one of said abolished insti-
tutions four such purposes. Said board
being hereby vested with an absolute
discretion and power in the matter of
location and sites of this said institu-
tion."
There will be strong efforts made to
locate the university at Lake City or at
Gainesville, and it may be possible that
Jacksonville may desire it, as it is cus-
tomary for that enterprising city to
reach out for almost anything that may
be in sight. And thrre are indications
that Tallahasses may be expected to
content Itself with the location of the
"Florida Femasle College" to be estab-
lished as provided in the act.
Without Indulging in a single word of
critleism of any of these localities, or
making any invidious comparisons with
either of them, we aee no good reason
In the existence of any of the advan-
tages either of them may be expected
to claim why Tallahassee should not be
chosen in preference to any other city
as the site of the university.
According to the act, the new univer-
sity must posses the following depart-
ments of instruction: Agricultural, in-
dustrial and mechanical; classical; sci-
entific, "and such other departments of
higher education as the said board shall
deem necessary;" and besides all of
these, it must also embrace a "Normal
department for the Instruction of white
teachers," whose pupils will be of both
sexes, and which is intended to be a
continuation. so to speak, of the State
Normal School, heretofore located at
DeFunlak Springs.
The joint board, which must assem-
ble In Tallahassee at an early day,
should be fully advised by those repre-
senting the City of Tallahassee in this
matter of college locations, of the emi-
nently superior advantages possessed
by Tallahassee for the location here of
the University; and the fact that this
place possess, in an eminent degree,
all of the various qualifications indica-
ted In the act, with refreneeto to the
richness and variety of its soils, the
adaptability of the school property now
belonging to the State College, and
particularly the udrivalled healthfulness
of the situation (which is a point not
mentioned In theact.) Geographically,
and with reference to the population of
the State, Tallahassee has no superior
within its borders. Accessibility, which
years ago was a matter of moat serious
consideration, has become secondary
because of the wonderful Improvements
In the State's transportation facilities,
which has resulted in bringing places
formerly remote into positions as com-
pietely and conveniently accessMible as
the most central points in the State's

Tllnecesaity of providing for the
accommodation of the Normal depart-
ment sla another reason in favor of Tal-
aishassee. If the present buildings of
the State College are insuficient to ac-
commodate both the University and the
Normal the latter could be located,
temporarily, at least, if not permanent.-
ly, on the premises formerly occupied
as the home of the West Florida Semi-
nary in the center of the city.

A GRAMCL GM .
One of the most interesting incidents
of the commencement exercises at the
State Normal School was the present-
ation, by the graduating class of the
Kindergarten department to the insti-
tution of two rare and beautiful pic-
tures, very handsomely framed, one
representing "Peace-A Little Child
Shall Lead Them"; and the other the
Bodenhauser Madona, both being copies
of celebrated paintings; also a statuette
- Mercury for the library. These
gifts were presented in a charming
manner by one of the class, Miss
Mamie Cheny, who is a niece of Mr. A.
H. Alford of Tallahassee.
The class numbered four, which was
a good record for the second year of
the department, the entire number of
graduates in the academic department
being but seven. Next year and here-
after much larger classes in the Kin-
dergarten department may be expect-
ed, because of the new law providing
for Kindergarten instruction in the
public schools, which will largely in-.
crease the demand for competent grad-
uate instructors.

One of the best addresses delivered
in the House last week was that of Mr.
Watson, of Osceola, during the discus-
aion of the franchise tax bill. As offi-
cially reported Mr. Watson said In part
that he was not here to defend the
railroads-they needed no defense at
his hands-but he was sick and tired of
seeing members of this house and some
people all over the State continually
nagging at the railroads.
He has been a member or the Legis-
lature for five or six terms and his ob-
servation has been that the railroads
have done and are now doing more to
advertise Florida than the State itself
has done through legislation.
The East Coast railroad, to his cer-
tain knowledge, had spent over $50,000
last year advertising Florida and her
wonderful resoureea, and their effort,
together with other railroads of this
State, speak for themselves.
Mr. Watson's statements will be
heartily approved by a vast majority of
the people of Florida. This is a great
State and there should be no room for
disagreement between the railroads and
the people they serve. Their Interests
are ndependent, their aims and objects
are mutual as regards the building up
of a great country and the making of
this one of the most fertile and pros-
perous states in the Union.

bassador at Washingtoo.
President Roosevelt has made a
decided move for peace in the Far
East. In a conference at the whitc<
house Friday afternoon with Count
Cassini, the Russian ambassador, the
president expressed the earliest hope
that Russia would forthwith conclude
peace with Japan. Prolongation of the
war, he Lelileves, will not result in
victory for the Russian arms, and can
only serve to Increase Japan's de-
mands, and render more difficult the
drafting of a treaty of peace which
the czar, as well as the nrlkado, can
sign. The president spoke, he said,
as the friend of Russia no less than of
Japan, and on behalf not only of tho
Washington government, but in the
interest of humanity.
The president Informed the ambas.
sador that in expressing hope for an
%arly, peace he voiced not only his
strongly personal sentiments and those
of his government, but he believed
these were held by all of the powers.
His opinion was that it would be a
mistake for Russia to continue the
war. In addition to the suffering en-
tailed by the naval conflict he did not
believe that Russia has anything to
win in prolonging hostilities. The
president did not enter into details,
but the personal character of the con-
versation and his long acquaintance
with Count Cassini enabled him to
talk plainly regarding the decisive
character of the Japanese victor:* s.
What Japan's probable peace terms
will be. the president was wholly un-
able to say, but he did not hesitate to
express the opinion that difficult as
these conditions might prove In tho

There was hope yet of a victory for
the Riiu5iian arms. It was suggest-'d,
and, in any" event Rtusila had not yet

the Russian front ler endang(er-.d.
The ambassador pointed out that
thero was not the slightest offiklal lh
timatilon from any i,ource as to Ja
pian's probable terms and that those
demands as stated unofficially were
"altogether Impossible." If Japan's
terms should prove anything like se-
vere as they have been reported, It
was the ambiasador's opinion that
Russia could advantageously continue
the war Indefinitely, and eventually
win a victory on land. That his gov.
ernment would go decide he did not
wlih to predict, but, at last accounts.
the emperor was for a contlnuatlon
of the war.

do so, but as it did not appear that
they suffered from any damage caused
by sea or storm, this government was
obliged to take the position above
outlined.
The President's Decision.
The president's decision regarding
the disposition of the Russian vessels
at Manila, that they shall Interne or
put to sea is, it is said, in Wash'

naval opinion, and is in pursuit of the
policy of strict neutrality followed by
the Washington government from the
beginning of the war. It Is specifical-
ly declared that there is no Intention
to show the slightest favoritism in the
matter and everything possible will
be done for the comfort of the wound-

This road will pass through a vast

President Johnson Poor Writer.

rare, but perhaps those of Andra \v
JJohn on are the rarest, as he did but
little of his own writing. His son con-
ducted most of his correspondence and
signed his father's name to the letters.
It Il related that one reason why Pres.
dent Johnson wrote so little was ow-
Ing to an accident which happened to
Lim when he was working at his trade
as tailor. One day a tailor's heavy
iron goose fell on his arm, so Injuring
that mriembher that he found It extreme-

as well as the rarest. His iiandwr!t.

OF CONFLICT


Represetatlvns of Fovers Mr With
President oosevelt In Ro to
Stop Russo-Jap War.
A Washington special says: Short-
ly after nine o'clock Saturday night,
Mr. Kogoro Takphira. the Japanese
minister, called at the waite house by
appointment He was immediately re-
ceived by the president and a confer-
ence ensued. Following so closely the
visit of Couht Caaainl, It was atu-

occasion to communicate to Mr. Tak-
abirt the views of Russia as present.
ed by Count Cassini at the conference
with him Friday. Whether the visits
had anything to do with the appear,
ance of the three Russalan ships at
Manila could not be learned.
Diplomatic activity In Washington
Indicates that the European power*
are prepared actively to assist the
president in any efforts he may make
in the Interest of peace In the Far
Oatit, and it is now learned, on high
authority, that the German emperor
heartily shares the earnest wish of
President Itoorsvelt for an early ena.
ing of the war. Neither tihe president
nor the emperor, however, is ambi-
tious to assume the role of petie.
maker, although anxious to do what
is possible to assist Russia and Ja-
pan to enter upon peace negotiatloini
as Foon as practicable.
From Information received, it is be-
lieved that the king of Italy can he
relied upon to cast his influence for
peace, and the long rc ifrence of
Baron des Planches, the ?!."ian anmbas-
sador. Saturday afternoon, with Count
C'assini after the latter's call at the
white houst-, Is but one of several evi-
donces of the activity of the king's
envoy at Washington in the Intercs;
of peace.
Sir Mortimer Durand, the British
ambassador, In a recent visit to the
white house, placed the president In
possession of the views of King Ed-
ward, who would welcome an early
peace. The views of the French gov-
ernment are well known to be of a
similar character.
For an hour Saturday afternoon
Baron Von Sternberg, the German
ambassador. was at the Russian em-
bassy, discussing the situation with
Count Cassuit. Thus far the latter
has not heard from bhis government.
Financial Influences in Paris are
again aiding to turn the tide toward
peace in the Far East. A banker,
who is a member of the syndicate
which handled the recent Russian
loans, said Sunday:
"Russia's credit has not been af-
fected by her naval defeat for the
reason that it is believed it will
compel her to make peace after a
period of hesitation. Whether it 1,
peace or war, Russia must have more
money, but it will be an indispensa-
ble condition to any further loan from
here that peace be made."
Sunday night, liaron Speck Von
Sternberg, the German ambassador,
spent two hours in conference with
President Itoosevelt at the whiteI
house. There isa very reason to be-
lieve that much of the time was oc-
cupied with a discussion of the gen-
eral question of the war between Rus-
ala and Japan, and the possibility of
peace.
No official word haa reached Wash-
ington regarding the probable stti-
tude of the czar toward the ending
of the war. Meantime exchanges are
In progress between Washinlgton, Betr
tn. London. Rome and Paris regard-
Ing The whole sialtuation.
Mr. O'llDeirne, the BrtiUah charge
d'affaires, was also at the white house
Sunday and discussed the question
with the president. It is fully expect-
ed that weeks may elapse before Rus-
ala decides on her course, UTntll fount

Thousands o Russians Wen: Dows
in Great Naval Battle.


JAPS SUFFERED LITTLE

Edimvit of Four Thousand Ptsoanm
Between Sevea ud Mae Thn-
sad SlaV arc lilSa.

Advice from Tokto, under date of
June lat, state that the Japanese l Ow
es in the battle of the Sea of JaJpam,
were 113 officers and men killed sad
424 officers and men wounded. The
completion of the revised list shows
that the losses were under the or*g-
Inal estimate. The flagship Mikas%
was the heaviest loser, losing sixty-
three killed and wounded. Commas-
der Togo of the Adzuma was wound-
ed.
Rough estimates made of the Rus-
sian losses, exclusive of nearly 4. 00
prisoners, vary from 7.000 to 9,040.
Calculating the complements of the
sunken and captured ships at upward
of 10.000, 7.000 men remain unaccount-
ed for. it is possible that the ships
which escaped rescued some of the
members of the crews of the iese
fortunate ships.
Many bodles have been waL..eA
ashore on the island, and on the
shores of the tieighhoring coasts, near
the scene of the battle.
The navy d(cpartim-at in Toklo made
the following announcement Thurs.
day:
"LAter reports from the different
divisions of the fleet engaged in the
naval battle of May 27 show as fto.
lows:
"The Russian battleship Oslablea wes
heavily Gamaged in the early paft oa

the afternoon. The first Rustian vm-.
sel sunk was the battleship 81|sI

ally completely disabled. They drift.
eor Into the vicinity of Tau island,
where they were discovered on Sub-
day morning, May 28, by thle auxib'
lary cruisers 8bilano Yawata, Tal.
oan and Sado, which captured them,
but they all sank. The crews of our
auxiliary cruisers rescued 195 of the
crews of the sunken Russian ships.
The battleship Navarin was torpe-
doed four times after sundown ft
Saturday, May 27. and sank. The
survivors of the Nevarin's crew cow-
firm the story of her destruction.
"The cruisers Nitaka and Otaws
discovered the Russian cruiser Svloi*
lana at 9 o'clock Sunday morning, la
the vicinity of Chappyan bay, and
Immediately attacked and sunk her.
The commander of the Nitaka re.
ports that it is suspected that the
Russian cruisers Almas and AuroMr
were sunk by torpedoes on the nilgb
of May 27.
"Later reports show that during the
night of May 27 our torpedo boats
Nos. 84. 85 and 69 were sunk by
the enemy's fire. Comrades rescued
tMte majority of their crews. Besides
the above there was no damage worth
reporting. No warship nor destroyer
suRfered any loss of fighting or natvb
gating power."
