To Nrn. Mbbeth I. DoUglass.
In the qiet hush of a golden Sunday
afternoon, calmly and painlessly, wit
the "peace of Cod which pasath all
understanding Mrs. Elisabeth Domug
lass fell asleep, surrounded by the loved
ones who had watched with faithful-
nes and care her declining years.
So gently did she "go away" it was
hard to realize the "Angel of Death"
had borne her sweet spirit to the God
who gave it.
A good life well spent, duties cheer-
fully rendered, sorrows patiently borne,
a Christian for over half a century and
a member of the Episcopal church since
her seventeenth year, Mrs. Douglasb
has gone to reap the reward promised
the "pilgrims" who serve and do not
grow weary in well doing and who
walk with God and do not faint. She
was the eldest daughter of Gov. Those.
Brown, and came from Virginia to
Florida in the early pioneer days.
Gifted with rare personality and great
charm, she was ever a favorite with
young and old and drew around her
the choicest and best intellects of the
men and women of the old regime.
Married from her father's home in
Tallahassee, she removed with her hus-
band Judge Samuel J. Douglass, to
Key West, where they remained until
the beginning of the Civil War.
A most devoted wife and mother, a
loyal and true friend, she was held in
highest esteem and affection in the
little city of her adoption, and though
many years have passed and gone since
leaving Key West, there are yet friends
there who remember with love this
peerless woman.
Mrs. Douglass had passed the eighty-
eighth mile-stone of life, and was re-
markably bright in mind and happy and
cheerful in the family circle of her son-
in-law, Mr. George Lewis, of this city;
she was ever the first thought and care
of all within that circle, and her declin-
ing years were utterly care-free and
Mrs. George Lewis, of Tallahassee,
and Archer W. Douglass, of St. Louis,
Mo., are the only children left of the
eight that came to bless her union with
Judge Douglass.
e bid adieu with loving memories to
this cherished friend, and in the tears
that fall upon her flower-covered mound
feel comforted with this thought:

Meria's rosperity.
Everyone should pay particular atten-
tention to the bulletin on the manufact-
uring interests of Florida, issued Sat-
urday by the census bureau of the De-
partment of Commerce and Labor, says
the Tampa Tribune. This bullet in,
which is the result of expense and la-
bor by the government in the collection
of statistics, places the value of the
manufactured products of the State for
last year as $50,241,078, an increase
since 1900 of 47 per cent.
Just think of that!
It means that the people of Florida
have not been content to remain idle
and allow other States to leave her be-
hind. It means that the enterprising
citizens of a State that is plethoric
with natural possibilities have taken
advantage of the conditions and to use
a vulgarism of the day, "made good."
According to this official bulletin,
there are 1,410 manufacturing estab-
lishments in the State, capitalized at
$32,9658482. Those establishments em-
ploy 41,961 wage-earners, who were
paid last year $16,786,222.
The product of the principal articles
manufactured was last year as follows:
Tobacco, cigars and cigarettes, $16,784,
276; lumber, $12 52,106; turpentine
and rosin, $9,861,178.

The Atlanta Constitution says: An
elegant dinner party of Saturday even-
ing was that given by Mr. and Mrs.
W. A. Speer at their palatial residence
on Peachtr# e road, in compliment to
their guest, Mrs. Charles Cay of Jack-
sonville, and to a number of their Flor-
ida friends who were in the city. The
table was rich in its appointments and
decorations, a large wreath of pink ro-
ses forming the center-piece, the silver
candelabra shaded in pink, and all the
minor details in the same color, which
was observed also in the various cours-
es of a delicious menu. The party in-
cluded besides Mrs. Charles 'Cay, Mr.
and Mra. Coachman, Miss Stripling,
Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Cay. of Jack-
sonville, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Douglass
and Mr. and Mrs, Clifford Hatcher
The handsome hostess received in an
elegant toilette of white crepe de chine,
and Mrs. Charles Cay, who is reputed
to be one of the most beautiful women
in Florida, wore a pompadour gown in
white and yellow. Mrs. Coachman's
toilette was a beautiful one in blue and
white silk with duchesse lace. Miss
Stripling's dainty toilette was of white
lace. Mrs. Raymond Cay wore an ex-
quisite toilette in black silk and lace,
with a touch of old rose. Mrs. Doug.
lass wore a becoming gown of pale lav-
ender, and Mrs. Hatcher was charming
in pale blue silk.

The affidavit filed in this case, based
on section 4, chapter 4667, Acts of 1M7,
charges that the defendant unlawfully
caught with a seine fish in the waters
of the State of Florda, and caught
mullet in said waters between the 1ith
day of November and the 81st day of
December, 1906. The defendant pleaded
not guilty, but admitted fishing at his
fishery and catching fish between the
dates named in the affidavit, and filed a
certified abstract of title to the lands
fished on reaching back to deed from
John Beard, receiver of Apalachicola
Land Co., the successors of John Forbes
The evidence introduced discloses that
all of Wakulla county lying west of St.
Marks river, Including the island bor-
dering along her Gulf oast, is embraced
in what is generally known and is desig-
nated on the map of Florida and tfe
United States as "Forbes' Purchase."
Also that the locus in quo is the shallow
waters submerging the shores and low
flat portions of the main land and
islands, where the tides ebb and flow,
on tie Gulf coast of Wakulla county,
not in navigable channels nor in any
waters that have been dedicated to the
use of navigation, or ever been declared
navigable under the navigation laws.
The territory embraced in "Forbes'
Purchase" (covering an area of 1,427,-
290 17-100 acres and extending into
Franklin, Liberty and Gadsden counties,
as Wakulls), was acquired by Spain
from the Indian owners, who, according
to historical traditions, extensively op-
erated these fisheries as far back as to
where the mind of man runneth not to
the contrary and Spain became vested
with the rights d privileges so long
previously enjoyed by the Indian
When Spain, for a valuable consider-
ation in 1804-06-11, by grants from the
Spanish Crown, conveyed the territory
in question to Panton Leslie & Co. and
to John Forbes & Co.. in their own
right and as surviving partners and
successors to Panton Leslie & Co., it is
ut fair and reasonable topresume that
all the fishing rights, and as well as
other riparian rights, passed under such
grants from the Crown of Spain to
their grantees, John Forbes A Co. And
thus fishing rights and privileges en-
joyed by the original Indian owners of
the territory in quo based to and be-
came vested in John Forbes & Co.
It is held in Magee vs. Alba, 9 Fla.
W32, and in Magruder vs. Perpall, 13 Fla.
602, and in Keech vs. Enrich 28 Fla.
597, that titles to land acquired by pur-
chase from the Spanish government in
Floridaare protected by the 8th Arti-
cle of the treaty of cession. Hence all
the rights and privileges attaching to
lands conveyed by Spanish grants that
could have been exercised or enjoyed by
the grantees under the Spanish govern.
ment, were recognized and protected
by the 8th Article, treaty of 1819, when
the Floridas were ceded by Spain to
the United States.
It is also held in Axline vs. Shaw, 36
Fla. 306, that lands which were private
property at the time of the passage of
the riparian act of 1866, were not af-
fected by the act. And it is held in
Huge vs. A. 0. C. & F. Co., 25 Fla. 66,
that the act of 1856 in favor of riparian
owners did not affect land previously
dedicated to public use; that is to say,
that vested rights cannot be affected by
subsequent legislation.
Upon these principles of law, the
free and unrestricted right of the In-
dian owners to catch fish whenever they
chose to do so, having passed by the
Spnish grants and become vested in
John Forbes Co. and being private
property at the time of the treaty of
119., passed the change of flags unal-
tered and having never at any time be-
come a part of the public domain of the
United States nor of Florida, but re-
maining private property as it passes
on down through the channel of subse-
quent conveyances to the present own-
ers unaffected by the swamp and over-
flowed eact and the riparian act, then
why should the fish act of 1897-99 apply
to this private property?
Our conclusion is that the waters em-
braced in the "Forbes Purchase,"
which have never become the property
of the State of Florida. nor by any
process of law dedicated to public use,
are not the "waters of this State,"
within the meaning of chapter 4667,
law of 1897.
And we hold that the provisions of
chapter 4657 1897, making it unlawful
to catch fish "in the waters of this
State" between certain dates therein
mentioned, do not apply to the shallow
waters submerging the shores and tow,
flat main lands and islands, where the
tides ebb* and flow, embraced in the
"Forbes Purchase."
The defendant's plea in abatement is
hereby sustained.

Let the prisoner be discharged.

on Our Platform.'

Cash Buying and Cash Selling.I

Every Plank of which has stood the test of time.
Our performance has always equaled our promises.
When we announced through the columns of our local news paper that we would open a store
in this City, and the Platform upon which our Business would stand and be conducted, we had'nt
the least idea that our plans would prove so popular. We then promised among other things that
whosoever traded with us should earn a net saving of from 10 to 25 per cent.
The fact that we were thoroughly in earnest, and as evidence of how well we have kept this
promise, we point with pride to the ever increasing number of our Customers.
We expected that the people would be skeptical about this promise and that it would require
much of our time to convince our friends and customers that we were thoroughly in earnest in our
promise and that they would be carried out to the letter. But the methods of our store have been so
pleasing and the saving so apparent that a Customer only has to start on the CASH PLANK of our
Plan for once in order that he may be a Cash Buyer thereafter.
Suppose you investigate the Cash Plank in our Platform.

Naval Stores Operators.
Yesterday- and today Jacksonville is
well filled with a new class of business
men, comparatively speaking, says
Thursday's Metropolis. We refer to
the manufacturers of naval stores and
the dealers in that line of business. A
few years ago there was not much of
this business done in Florida. but now it
covers the State, so to speak, and the
product is one of the largest and most
valuable yet found. It exceeds the
phosphate, timber, fruit and vegetable,
business both in volume and in valutI.
and furnishes employment for the State
convicts, who heretofore were more or
less an expense tot th xpayers, and it
was difficult at one time to find emlohy-

manufacture of naval stores came the
demand for this class of labor, and from

Wakulla county has lost one of its
oldest and most prominent colored cit-
izens in the peron of Mr. Amos Har-
grett. He wos born in Mieeosuki,
Fla., in 1832 and died November 1906.
He hadreached the ripe old age of 73
years, and leaves a wife and nine chil-
dren to mourn his loss. All the chil-
dren are grown. Four are school
teachers. When a lad he moved to
.Spchoppy, thence to Newport. In 18-
59 he was married to Miss Louisa Jeff-
erson. He belonged to the Chaires
family. Soon after emancipation he
became actively engaged in politics.
He held several positions of trust under
the government. In 1868 he was ap-
pointed justice of the peace, later to
the custom house at St. Mark's, which
pomiiotn he held eight years. He was
chairman of the county executive corn-
mttee almost continuously. He was a
member of the state central committee
and in 185 was elected to state legis-
lature from Wakulla county. In lM \
he received the appointment of post-
master at St. Mark s.
lHe was a consistent Christian and
Deacon of the Missionary iap t i s t
Church for thirty years lie was
known to be a devoted husband and a
loving father and was highly respected
by white and colored Our loss is
heaven's gaig. His remains now rest
in the family burying ground beside his
sainted father and mother of long ago.

Lowe Goode plaintiff in error, v. The
State of Florida, defendant in error
Walton county.
Opinion by Shackleford C. J.
1. Among other things, the term es poti
facto law includes every law that alters
the legal rules of evidence, and receives
less or different testimony than the law
required at the time of the commission
of the offense in order to convict the
2. It is the general rule, in construing
statutes, that construction is favored
which gives effect to every clause and
every part of the statute, thus produc-
ing a consistent and harmonious whole.
and a construction which would leave
without effect any part of the language
used should be rejected if an interpreta-
tion can be found which will give it ef-
tect; yet, however important it is to
give significance and effect to every
word, clause and sentence in a statute,
less regard is to be paid to the words
used than the policy which dictates the
3. Section 3 of chapter 4930 of the
laws of 1901, which provides that "in
the trial of violations of sections 1 and
2 of this act, it shall not be necessary
for the prosecution to prove that the
defendant had any interest in the money
received by a defendant for whiskey or
liquor delivered by him, but proof of
the delivery of liquor by a defendant
and the receipt of money therefore by
him shall be sufficient prima facie evi-
dence of the ownership of said liquor by
a defendant," has the effect of modify-
ing the rule of evidence enunciated in
Anderson v. State, 32 Fla. 242, 13 South.
Rep. 435, by making proof of the deliv-
ery of whiskey to a person by a defend-
ant, and the receipt of money therefore
by him, prima facie evidence of the
ownership of said whiskey by the de-
fendant and thereby casting upon him
the burden of rebutting the i' gl pre-
A- 4. In a prosecution for violation of
the local option law, the crime may be
proved by showing a systematic course
of trade by the defendant as well as by
showing a single act.
5. Evidence of circumstances tending
to connect the accused with the com-
mission of the alleged crime, even
though inconclusive, is properly admit-
ted, and this is especially true in a pros-
ecution for violation of the local option
law when such evidence tends to throw
light upon the real transaction. The
admission of such evidence rests largely
within the judicial discretion of the trial
judge, and an appellate court should not
disturb his ruling thereon, unless an
abuse of the judicial discretion is clearly
*wade to appear.
6. Evidence examined and found suf-
ficient to support the verdict.
Jud ent affirmed.
Daniel Campbell & Son for plaintiff in
error; W. H. Ellis, Attorney-General,
and J. W. Kehoe, State Attorney, for
the State.

Fabe Robinson, plaintiff in error, v.
The State of Florida, defendant in
error; Jackson county.
Opinion by Shackleford, C. J.
Under section 1096 of the Revised
Statutes of 1892, those who had been
convicted in some court in this State of
" one of the crimes enumerated therein
were rendered incompetent as witnesses;
but proof of such fact must have been
adduced to render the proposed wit-
nesses incompetent.
2. Where the substance of proposed
instructions, so far as they are applica-
ble to the facts of the case, is fully cov-
ered by other instructions already given
by the court, there is no error in refus-
ing those proposed.
3. After a criminal case has been
closed 0o i i,,th Iiide., and the argument
of coui.nl I. being made, it is within
\the sound ju.dicial discretion of the trial
court to permit either the State or the
defendant to intrxluce additional evi-
dence in furtherance ofi justice, and,
unless an abuse of this judicial discre-
tion is clearly made to appear, an ap-
pellate court will not disturb the ruling
of the trial court either in granting or
refusing such permission.
| 4. It is the duty of the defendant to
bring to the attention of the trial court.
at the earliest possible moment, any
newly discovered evidence winch he may
desire to introduce; and. if he fails to
so bring it to the attention of the trial
court, an appellate court will not dis-
turb the ruling in refusing a motion for
a new trial based uxpon the ground of
such newly discovered evidence.
5. Evidence examined and found suf-
ficient to support the verdict.

but on Tuesday evening he brought to

were raised in his garden from culls of

That such a medicine exists, however, has been proved by the

It is our intention to conduct a first-class furniture business, and we ask a liberal share of your patronage.

Our stock will be found to contain the latest novelties as well as all Standard goods. We are making preparations to be
able to execute promptly any order we may receive for any kind of furniture, and house and office furnishings.
"To fill a long felt want" we will inaugurate a repair department for high grade furniture, which will be in charge of one
of the most skillful workmen obtainable.
It would afford us great satisfaction to be able to announce a strictly cash, pay-as-you-go, policy; but it is our opinion that
in'a business the size of ours, in dear old Tallahassee, the plan would not work, still, the merchant who extends credit indiscriminately
must either "lose out" or charge exhorbitant prices in order that the good customer shall pay the debts of the one who never pays.
We may be beaten by some, but we intend to reduce to the minimum the number of those who buy goods on credit of us and never
pay. Persons unknown to us must show us their ability and willingness to pay as agreed upon. By selling largely for cash and in-
sisting upon a strict adherence to a careful credit policy we will be able to offer our goods at the lowest possible figures.
To customers of small means, whose reputation and references show them to be worthy of it, we will extend the installment
plan of purchasing.

If we can offer you the best goods, the lowest prices and the most satisfactory service,
enumerate some of the goods we carry.

give us your patronage. Below we
