Tallshanse, FrMay, July 2X, 39M.

Friends of U. S. Senator Mallory
everywhere will be pleased to learn that
he is much improved in health after a
brief sojourn at Tate Springs.
Gadsden county challenges comparison
with any other county of the State with
a record of only $60.43 delinquent taxes
for 1904. Show up, gentlemen
After having quite a lot of fun with
the cigarette fiends, by telling them of
the stringent provisions of the new
"cigarette law," the newspapers of the
State are now engaged in disseminating
the fact that no such law was enacted
at the recent session.
The Lake City newspapers notably
the Citizen-Reporter are fighting the
college location battle over again with a
degree of vindictiveness which' in not
at all to their credit. We refrain from
encouraging the unreconciled spirit dis-
played by reproducing their intemper-
ate utterances.
Full and free pardon is granted the
Lake City Index on account of a num-
ber of sneaking little sarcasms about
The True Democrat. The Index was so
completely flabbergasted over the de-
cision of the college location matter
that it hasn't since been its real, jolly
harmless self at all.
No man or woman exists whose
place in the work of the world cannot
be filled, even including the $100,000-a-
year life insurance president. So, when
nearly all of the white employees at the
State insane hospital "walked out" last
week, there were doubtless others near
at hand or easily accessible to take
their places, and the capable superin-
tendent, Mr. Whitner, while put to a
little extra trouble, did not let the help-
less wards of the State suffer.
They do say that politics was the
trump card in the University deal and
that a promise of support for governor
given one of the Board of Control was
the card that turned the trick. --Madi-
son New Enterprise.
Those who voted for Gainesville were
Messrs. T. I. King and P. K. Yonge.
Which of these two will the New En
terprise name as the one who was
guilty of trading? We pause for a
reply but do not expect to get it.
Such imputations are unworthy of a


Florida newspaper.
The Atlanta Journal remarks

extension of the G F. & A.
from Carrabelle to Atlanta via
bus, and adds: "An extension
Georgia, Florida & Alabama is


that a

Colum-
of the

under course of construction to Quincy,
Fla., and this adds currency to the
rumor of the extension to Atlanta.
The road traverses the finest section of
Georgia and Florida, and such an ex-
tension would be of great benefit to At-
lanta and the intervening country."
The St. Augustine Record notes the
fact that property owners are protest-
Ing at the Increase in taxation caused
by the levy of the drainage tax, and
mentions one instance where the taxes
of a large owner in Dade county have
been Increased from $6,(X) to $80,(00.
The Record adds: "The object of the
new law is to benefit the State, but
trouble is already certain to arise when
it comes to deciding what lands shall be
taxed. If the plan can be worked out
fairly and satisfactorily it should result
In the opening up of thousands of acres
of valuable lands that will provide
splendid homes for new settlers."

The Timee-Union notes the fact that
"in the central part of the State a
weekly paper has a protest against the
dodger as a method of advertising for
the merchant. The editor of this coun-

poor subterfuge is being passed to the

more than he places. rises to argue
that the merchant who uses this means
of advertlein when the newspaper is

chants," but the number is rapidly dim-
inishing

The Jacksonville Metropolis repro-
duces a portion of The True Democrat's
article relating to the reply of the Joint
committee of investigation of the State
hospital to the protest of the Board of
State Institutions, commenting as fol-
lows:
The Tallahassee True Democrat is by
no means a whitewashing machine or an
apologist for the wrong doings of offi-
cials or employees of the State govern-
ment. L 0
That is right, Mr. Democrat. Go
ahead and let the people know it all.
They want the facts, as the good name
of a humane institution and the reputa-
tion of the State are involved in the
matter.
That the reply of the joint hospital
committee to the protest of the Board
of State Institutions h t the Jennings
contingent in a sore place is evident
from the following howl of the Brook.
ville Southern Argus:
The first legislative committee ap-
pointed to Investigate the insane asy-
lum has come out in a full page reply
to the scything arraignment of them by
the Board of State Institutions. The
reply fully justifies all the Board of
State Institutions said about them. If
all that they alleged about the abuses
at the asylum had been true, which we
are glad to know are not, it could not
have justified them in making a parti-
san attack upon the administration.
They were not supposed to have been
sent to Chattahoochee for political pur-
poses, but they seem to have thought
so.
Speaking of the disx.ositlon some peo-
people indulge by suppressing legiti-
mate local news, the Lakeland News
remarks thus:
A newspaper man worthy of the name
is never a prying busybody. Family
skeletons or private scandals have no
interest for him. The sanctity of the
home Is always respected, But he is
not to be thwarted by the idiotic whims
of those persons who refuse him inform-
ation merely because it does not suit
their personal pleasure to see a given
matter in print. hrie moral to this lit-
tle screed is that when a newspaper
man asks you for information relative
to any matter in which you are inter-
ested it would be to your interest to
comply with the request, or give a cour-
teous reason why-otherwise you may
rest assured you will see the story in
print anyway, and while it may not be
dealt with from your point of view, its
correctness in all essential details will
surprise you.
ADVERTISING TAMPA'S FAIR.
The free advertising plan of the
Tampa fair managers has become "an
issue" in the columns of the State
press. The idea was a good one for
the fair management. Fortified by a
most liberal subsidy made by the Legis-
lature out of the treasury, the managers
could just as well have been liberal in
their treatment of the State press, but
Impressed by the example of the recent
great national expositions, an effort was
made by the management to induce the
Florida newspapers to provide the nec-
esnary publicity free of charge. The
plan struck a snag, and the newspapers
are generally protesting against the in
Justice :contemplated. Among recent
expressions on the subject are' the fol-
lowing:
Why the newspaper rn should do all the
advertising for nothing, running from
forty to fifty dollars per month for four
or five months, is one of those things
which we can't make out. unless it Is
because the State pays the premiums
and the pa per are expected to pay the
rest. Gaideasville Sun
The News admires the shrewd man-
ager of the publicity department of the
Fllorida Mid-Winter Fair, but wecannot
nee it his way to give column after col-
umn of free advertising to a private
corporation and accept in return a ham
sandwich in payment thereof. Let the
Fair management issue stock to the
newspapers according to the amount of
work done and give them a Press Day
besides Lakeland News.

A LANE ARGIMrrT.
The Starke Telegraph in a recent is-
sue undertook to disclose the true in-
wardness of the failure of the Legisla-
ture of 18 to obey the Constitution
and make a reapportionment of the
members of the House of Representa-
tives according to population. The
Telegraph naively declares that "the
smaller counties, which hold the balance
of power in the Legislature under the
present apportionment," would not-
and will not-consent that justice should
be done and the Constitution obeyed.
By "the smaller counties," it may be
presumed that the Telegraph meant
those having only a single member of
the House under the present apportion-
ment-made in 1887. There are just 22
of these. Can the Telegraph explain
how 22 members, out of 68, "hold the
balance of power?" The counties
which could not have been affected by
reapportionment in 1897 number 31-a
majority in number; with 40 votes- a
majority of the total vote. Will the
Telegraph kindly explain how these
were induced to disobey the Constitu-
tion, in the interest of seven counties
whose representation should have been
reduced from two members to one each?
The votes and influence of the seven
counties whose representation should
have been increased by one each in 1897
are not now considered at all, and cer-
tainly were not regarded in that year.
Why?
The truth is that the Telegraph's ex-
planation does not explain anything;
and its labored argument to the effect
that "the present apportionment was
made for the purpose of making Flor-
ida's delivery from carpet-base rule safe
and certain," falls quite flat in the light
of the fact that in IS87, when the pres-
ent apportionment was made, there was
no "carpet-bag rule," nor any fear of
it.
As the representative of one of the
seven counties which, under a just re-
apportionment would have its represen-
tation reduced from two members to
one, the Telegraph hilariously remarks:
"We could give you [meaning thecoun-
ties entitled to increase of representa-
tion] more at present if we felt so in-
clined * but we don't want to
and we ain't agoin to."
Doubtless the time will come when a
Legislature may be chosen whose mem-
bers have some regard for the com-
mands of the Constitution, and then the
seven counties which for so many years
have been deprived of just representa-
tion will be fairly dealt with.

WHAT CAUSED IT.
The recent" walk-out" at the State
asylum was one of the results of the
publication, in the Times-Union of July
7th, of the reply of the joint legislative
committee which investigated the hos-
pital to the protest of the Board of
State Institutions. As the public is in-
terested in knowing the exact status of
the matter, we reproduce below that
part of the joint committee's reply
which referred to evidence furnished by
Mr D. W. C. Yarborough, and which
was the cause of offense to the striking
employees. Mr Yarborough's evidence
as officially published by the joint com-
mittee and the House committee did
not appear to be objectionable to these
employees, but when recapitulated by
the joint committee in its reply, its ob-
noxious features appeared to be brought
out into bold relief, and emphasized;
hence the indignation of the striking
employees.
In its reply the joint committee said:


and work as one.man to make it an
ideal institution of learning. Bartow
Courier-Informant.
We believe however that as bad as
this may appear on the surface what
seems a hard blow may in reality be
DeFuniak's opportunity. Under the
provisions of the Buckman bill the au-
thority is given for the State to permit
the use ofth'*State property not used
for State school p)rpoer for the use of
county high eo pupose.. Under
the deeds for the prpert to the State
her it can o for a purposes
only. If this prop can beo soured
for the p of a high school here,
and we beive that it can, we have the
ortuty to establish a high bseool
tat will be of even more benM t to our
town and in fact all West Florida, than
the Normal school was or ever could be.

The employees, it is said, also had

who has been acting as supervisorees in
the female department of the hospital,
but specifiaestions of the same have not
been made public.
Ila another column we publish the
official statement of Superintendent
Whitner; and without hesitation we
affirm that he could not maintain the
discipline of the institution without
promptly denying the demands of the
striking employees. And we feel en-
tirely confidentof Superintentent Whit-
ner's ability to restore the normal
status of the institution by the prompt
employment of others to fill the vacan-

PUBLIC OPINION

As Expressed In Print Concerning
College Location.
With one or two exceptions, the
Florida newspapers have been prompt
to uphold the hands of the joint board
in the matter of locating the State col-
leges, and in promising abundant moral
support to the several boards in respect
to the future management of these in-
stitutions. Here follow a few expres-
sions from leading journals throughout
the State:
The action of the authorities in se-
lecting Gainesville as the location for
the new State University will meet
with quite general approval throughout
the SLate, as also wall the selection of
Tallahassee for the Female College. -
Palatka News.
The Board of Control and Board of
Education after hearing the arguments
for Lake City, Taliahassee and Gaines-
ville, and after careful reflection, locat-
ed the University at the latter pace.
We doubt not this was a wise decision.
-DeFuniak Herald.
Gainesville has fairly won the great
prize fight after a great fight, and
although our sympathies were with our
neighbor, Lake City, now that the issue
has been finally determined, we present
to Gainesville our sincere congratula-
tions accompanied by the renewed as-
surance of our distinguished considera-
tion. Live Oak Democrat.
Florida will now have two good, sus-
tained educational institutions, and the
State will be somewhat relieved of the
financial burden of supporting number
of colleges. The recently appointed
bod -the Board of Control-did the
work, O let us hope both sides are now
satisfied with the selections made.
Success to Gainesville and Tallahassee!
-Titusville Advocate.
In locating the State University at
Gainesville, the Board of Controldoubt-
less had no other motive or incentive
than a desl:r- to please a majority of
the people and best serve the interests
of the whole State. Gainesville is an
ideal location and we believe the insti-
tution will prosper there. Let's all pull
together and strive to make the Uni-
versity tbe very best in the South!-
Marianna Times-Courier.
The action of the Board of Control in
locating the University at Cainesville
has met with the generous a approval of
the people of old Putnam. This county
was among the first to advocate the
claims of the Alachua city, and there-
fore the outcome was particularly pleas-
ing to all. Gainesville is an ideal site
for a great institution of this character.
Her central location, excellent climate,
healthful surroundings-in brief, her
natural advantages are scarcely equall-
ed. -Palatka Times-Herald.
In lo ating these institutions the
boards have made no mistake. This we
firmly believe is the verdict of three-
fourths of the people of Florida today,
and will be the verdict of time, which
after all is the only true test of the
wisdom of all human actions. Gaines-
ville is an ideal college town and if she
is anything like as immaculate as her
friends represented her to be in the
newspapers and in the contest before
the boards, we should think that not
only university students, but half the
population of the State would long togo
there to take in some of that rare at-
mosphere of public spirir. moral eleva-
tion, exalted refinement, Christian tol-
eration and brotherly love which hang
like a halo above this terrestrial para-
dise. But jesting aside having given
the University an ideal location, let us
all "put our shoulders to the wheel"

For=y r, have elapsed sines t), -4'

memorial to the women of the out
has not yet been erected. That the
United Confederate Voterans an not
inmeolble, however, to the obliation
rat upo them to take the lead in
tia p trie enterprise* was fully do-
monstrated at the la meannual reunion
at Louisville. where the following pre-
amble and resolutions were adopted
unanimously;
Whereas, At our reunion of 1904, our
federation turned over to the sons the
sacred duty of raising the funds for U e
Memorial to the Women of the Confed-
eracy; and
Whereas, In so doing we never relin-
quish our deep and abiding love for the
cause, or our intention to aid and assist
it by every means in our power; and
Whereas, We have clearly shown
this, by our appointment of a commit-
tee to co-operate and by the work
which this committee and many other
veterans in all parts of the South have
done during the past year; and
Whereas, It will ever be our most
earnest desire to see this tribute paid
to our glorious women, and we are most
anxious to further co-operate with and
give substantial aid to our sons in the
performance of this sacred duty; there-
fore, be it
Resolved First-That each camp of
the United Confederate Veterans, im-
mediately after the adjournment of the
convention and the return home of its
delegates, shall appoint a committee to
actively canvass its respective commu-
nity to raise funds for this Memorial
to the Women of the Confederacy, to
which noble, worthy and just object
this federation has repeatedly and sol-
emnly pledged itself and its comrades.
Second-That in case any camp does
not take action within one month by ap-
pointing this committee, it shall then be-
come the duty of its commander to
make appointment of such committee.
If no action is then taken by the com-
mander. any member of the camp who
is enthused with the high sense of his
duty to this holy cause, and desires to
honor our God-like women, is urged per-
sonally to take charge of the matter,
secure the endorsement of his local
camp or its officers and make such col-
lections as he can from his community.
Third-That all funds collected under
resolutions bne and two shall be depos-
,ted in some home bank, at interest, to
the credit of the chairman of the United
Confederate Veterans' committee of
co-operation (Gen. C. Irvine Walker,
Charlestpn, S. C.), and that he shall be
promptly advised of such deposit.
Fourth-That the above resolutions
are not intended to be obligatory upon
such camps as have already taken simi-
lar action or have already contributed
to this fund $50, or more.
Fifth-That each camp is urged to
endeavor to raise from its community
as its quota, at the very least, the sum
of $50.
Sixth-That all camps shall complete
this work by January 1, 1906, and on
that date make a report of the results
achieved to the chairman of our com-
mittee of co-operation, (Gen. C. Irvine
Walker, Chareston, S. C.)
Defective Laws.
Jacksonville Metropolis.
With all the precedents of careless
legislation, and advice to be careful in
the framing and passing of laws the
Florida Legislature seems to give little
heed. Law after law has been declared
null and void by the courts, because the
rules of passage were not complied
with, and the constitutional provisions
not obeyed. The rules are plain, and if
a school boy should neglect to obey
thefh he would deserve switching. Yet
men of intelligence and experience in
business and some in law will proceed
session after session ot the Legislature
to pass laws so carelessly as to make
them of no effect when an attempt to
enforce them is made.
Judiciary committees of the Legisla-
ture, whose duties are to see that all
bills comply with the constitution, are /
also at times at fault in reporting bills
to be in proper shape, and upon these
reports it is concluded that legally the
bills are all right, but when the test
comes afterwards in the courts it is
pointed out that either the established
rules of procedure have not been fol-
lowed or that there are one or more
provisions of a bill in conflict with the
constitution, and the result is all the
expense and bother of pasage is wast-
ed Slight defects thai could be reme-
died in a second are overlooked, and
these often prove fatal to good laws-
laws that the people need and want.
If the number of bills introduced in


the Legislature were limited perhaps .
more pains would be taken to see that
all were right before enacted into law.
The scramble to introduce bills has
been one of the prime faults of legisla-
tion. Some members seem to think the *
more bills introduced the better their
constituents will be pleased, when in
fact, if only one or two weoll--p-ed
bills were introduced they would ot be
knocked out by the courts, as Is gner-
erally the case when man are hurried-
ly p and through by
committees and Legislature.
The MetsMpol and other State papers
warned the st t in regard
to hasty and dectif vpage e of laas,
but it seem to have don little good, as
attorneys all over the State an now
attacking the validity of new law, and
the prospect is that many will to
stand the judicial scrutiny.

RIOT OF RACES

"San Juan Hill," the district bound-

    Rawlings, the father of the boys, and

    SECURITY MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY,
    Binghampton, New York.
    CHAS. M. TURNER, PRESIDENT.
    FOUR GOOD REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CARRY YOUR INSURANCE IN THIS COMPANY.


    FIRST. Because of the past record, and present standing of this com-
    pany. For eighteen years its growth has been steady. Each year since the
    frst has chronicled a gain in assets, and insurance in force, over the preced-
    ing. Quietly, without blare of trumpet, or roll of drum, it has passed upward
    in the path of prosperity, and showed on the first of January passed, over
    $3,000,000 of Assets, and over $47,000,000 of Insurance in force.
    SECOND. It is strongest at Home, where best known. In Binghamp-
    ton, where it was founded, and has always lived, it has nearly $2,500,000 in
    foree. This in a city of 50,000 population is remarkable, and in the State of
    New York. where the older companies are well entrenched, it had on the first
    day of January, $138,296,975 Insurance in force.
    THIRD. Its Policies are among the best in the world and have two
    features that are the very best that can be found. The Security
    a, lone among all the companies, limits its expense of management by
    e contracts with its Policy Holders. In its policies it expressly stipulates
    th maximum part of the premium that it can use for expenses.
    THE SECURITY ALONE REGISTERS ITS POLICIES and deposits
    the reserve under the laws of New York State. This registnrtion law is so
    strict that Reserve on Registered Policies pass out of the control of the com-


    pany, into the possession of the State Treasurer, and so long as the policy
    registered is in force, whether by premium paying, paid up, or as an extended
    insurance, the reserve stays in the States possession; thus you clearly see the
    State is, in a special sense, a partner in Carrying this insurance.
    FOURTH. SECURITY is a mutual company, it cannot be bought and
    sold in the market. It is made up of policy holders and operated by policy
    holders, for policy holders. No Mutual LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY on
    on the Legal Reserve basis has ever failed in the United States, and they
    stand, as light houses, pointing the way to safe harbor and sure anchorage.
    Fill out the Coupon below, and mail to me, and let me give you illustrations of the
    the best contracts on the market.
