The Advantages and Necessities of
Monday was Carrabelle's Red Letter
Day. It was the occasion of a demon-

Notice having been given that the
special congressional board of engineers
would visit the port to investigate con-
ditions and acquire information concern-
ing its advantages and requirements,
the officials of the Georgia, Florida and
Alabama railway arranged for an excur-
sion from the cities and towns along the
line and in te and in the region tributary thereto.
and the result was successful almost
beyond expectation. The engineers and
officials of the road and a considerable
number of the large party of excur-
sionists went down Sunday afternoon
and Sunday night, spending the night
at Lanark; and the remainder, mostly
from Tallahassee, went on the local
train Monday morning.
The excursion party, numbering about
150 persons, including quite a number
of ladies, besides the engineers and
officials, was composed of delegations
from Cuthbert, (Colquitt, Lumpkin.
Richland, Edison, Columbus, Stedman,
Carnegie, Albany and Bainbridge, Geor-
gia; and from Quincy, Havana, Hinson
and Tallahassee, Florida. The Talla-
hassee contingent consisted of Dr. W. L.
Moor, ex-mayor and president of the
Southern Telephone and Construction
Co.; Hon. Jno. W. Henderson, mayor-
Mr. C. B. Gwynn. of the State Land
Department. Mr. C R. Miller manager
of the Tallahassee Gas Co.; Mr. L. M.
Lively, manager of the Middle Florida
Ice Co.; Mr. D. M. Lowery, manager
of the Tallahassee Cotton Oil Co., a
member of the city council; Mr. Jos.
Duval, of Duval Bros., a prominent
merchant; Mr Arthur C. Spiller, of
the Gilmore & Davis Co., Mr. Rugele,
of the Tallahassee Iron Works; Mr. R.
C. Snipes, traveling passenger agent of
the G. F. & A. Ry., and a representa-
tive of The True Democrat.
The board of engineers comprised
Major J. B. Cavanaugh, engineer in
charge of the district with headquarters
at Montgomery' Ala., and Messrs. C.
M. Townsend, W. C. Langfitt, C. W.
Kurtz and A. H. Weber (of Washing-
ton D. C.), all officers of high repute
in the engineering corps of the war de-
partment. The railroad officials present
were Mr. W. M. Legg, general man-
ager; Mr. R. A. McTyre, general agent
and Mr. J. H. McWillams, general
freight and pa %enger agent.
In the early hours of Monday most of
the excursionists accompanied the en-
gineers on a tour of inspection about
the harbor through East Pass on board
the steamer Crescent City, and on their
arrival at the wharf the entire company
returned to Lanark Inn for dinner. Im-
mediately after dinner the crowd gath-
ered in the ball room of The Inn and
held one of the most interesting of
meeting, presided over by Major Cav-

To His ward.
Just as we were about to pio to press
last week crime the shocking news of
the sudden death of Rev. C. A. Fulwood
while attending annual conf:rtnce at
Ocala, and noted the arrival of his re-
mains here for interment. Tr. lo.low-
ing graphic account of the tragic scene
in the conference hall when this veteran
minister, who was beloved all over the
State, was called to his eternal reward
for the works done so well here on
earth, is from a special to the Live Oak
Ocala, Fla., December 7. Rev. C. A.
Fulwood, who was the pastor of the
Methodist church at Miami for the
pre tnt year, until he resigned a few
month ago on account of failing health,
dropped dead of heart failure at 11:20
today while on the floor of the Florida
Conference, while asking to be placed
on the superannuated list.
The occurrence is the second of its
kind that has happened while the con-
ference was in session. during the past
two years, and almost threw the body
into a panic.
Members of the conference gathered
around his prostrate form, ready to do
anything possible for his relief, and
medical assistance was speedily sum-
moned, but to no avail.
The business of the conference was
immediately suspended in respect to the
deceased minister. Hiis body was pre-
pared for burial and will be carried to
Tallahassee, attended by a committee
of his brethren, for interment.
IHe was in his 7 ;th year and had been
a member of the Florida Annual Con-
ference, fr the piat sixteen years, dur-
ing which time he had served as pastor
in rninav important places as well is,
presiding e'ldelr oof one fr two of the dis-
tri(ts, ind wos regarded as one of tlie
most ius.eful rnelrimbers of the conferred .
The ,smihlcs of the octcaion was in-
terinifioil hy the, thought that it wasthe'
second of the kind to happen while the
conference was in session during the
past two years, and there members of
the conference were very much affeBcted
by the coincident Rev. J A. Lowland
having died suddenly at the last session,
held in Orlando.
The Jacksonville Time's- nion is mak-
ing splendid reports of the proceedings
at the fifteenth annual Confederate re-
union, held in that city, and all old sol.
diers who were unable to attend should
secure copies for preservation. The
reunion has been one of the mo:.t inter-
esting that has ever occurred, and its
history and Incidents will long be re-
membered by all concerned. We sin-
cerely regret that our space forbids ex-
tended report of the proceedings.
Among the most striking incidents of
the occasion wrs that of the exhibit of
old, tattered and blood-stained battle
flags belonging to the several Florida
commands, which were carefully for-
warded by Adjutant-General Foster,
their custodian, and excited the liveliest
and most sacred emotions in the hearts
of the veterans who marched and fought
under their fluttering folds in the time
The annual oration was delivered by
Hon. W. L. Palmer of Orlando, and was
a brilliant and finished specimen of ora-
tory, and a beautiful t.ibute to the vet-

Committee on IntarUte and Foreign
Commerce. It seems they didn't sup-
port the action of the Democratic cau-
cus on the rallroad-rate bill, and, ac-
cordinsg to report, Mr. Williams an-
nounced that he would discipline them
when the committees of the Fifty-ninth
Congress were appointed.
The committees were announced on
Monday, and their names were not
among those on the Committee of In-
terstate and Foreign Commerce. It
seems Mr. Lamar undertook to have it
out with Mr. Williams on the floor of
the House immediately after the com-
mittees were announced, and Mr.
Shackleford's and Mr. Hearst's friends
were apparently ready to give him a
hearty support, but Mr. Williams ob-
jected to Democrats washing dirty
linen in the House for the amusement
of the Republicans, and so nothing was
brought out in the House about the
quarrel. Mr. Lamar, however, insisted
that Mr. Williams should call a caucus,
and if this is done doubtless the Demo-
cratic members of the House will have
a talk among themselves that will re-
sult in clearing up their differences, or
else efforts will be made to depose Mr.
Williams from the leadership of the
It is understood that those hostile to
Mr. Williams want him deposed. Mr.
Hearst's paper, the American. spoke
slightingly of Mr. Williams in its Mon-
lay's issue. In its leading editorial
artic-le, among t her things, it. said:
"John Sharp Williams has made him-
self 'lIadil.r' of the Democratic side oif
the lHouse f liepnresentative lie was
'lal,,er' last essrion, and charnctirrizeil
his 'ule'adlr-hip' by such complhtet, inca-
lacity such :notorious indiscretion, that
ii, .-i todhiy the leader of the smtalle't
minority thel House has ever seen."
The fortgoinrf is an indication of
what ntn will permit themselves to say
of a person when they feel they have a
grivairice against him. It is said, and
it is probably true, that Mr. Williams
did, as charged, write some harsh
things of Mr. Hearst and his railroad
rate bill during the second session of
the last Congrems. For instance, it is
reported he said that Mr. Hearst was
'a hound who runs ahead of the pack
to throw them off the scent" and also
that he was "a rich demagogue." It is
understood that it was such expressions
as these that were in the letters that
Mr l.amar wanted to read in the House
As a matter of fact Mr. Williams is
regarded as one of the ablest leaders
the Democrats have ever had when in
minority in the House. Leading I)Demo-
crats and Republicans agree that much
is the case. He seems, however, to
have lost the confidence and support of
a small faction of hin follower who
appear to want to adopt more radical
policies than he thinks advisable under
the circumstances. If an attempt is
made to depose him the tight, in all
probability, will be a memorable one.

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 losee out" or charge exorbitant 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, give us your patronage. Below we
enumerate some of the goods we carry.
