any tendency of a cold to result in
pneumonia, and if given as soon as the

Our sympathies are with both the


Union printers and the management of
the Times-Union, owing to both sides
having been our personal friends for a
long time. It is unfortunate that em-
ployer and employee should meet in
such a conflict after having been on
such extremely good terms for so many
year, sad we feel that good judgment
on the part of some one could have pre-
vented the printers going out on a
strike and the managers declaring the

for it to last long, and we hope the

WE LOVE THE GOVERNOR TOO.
The Tallahassee True Democrat of
last week reproduces a clipping from a
State paper sharply criticising the ac-
tivity of Governor Broward in the mat-
ter of draining the Everglades notwith
standing the Injunction recently issued
and inadvertentlycredits the clipping to
the Democrat: The article did not ap-
pear in this paper and we have indulged
in no criticism of the Governor for his
activity in hastening preparations for
draining the Everglades. We are quite
sure that he is a law-abiding man and
will respect the injunction ofthe courts.

So are we sure that Governor Brow-

A PARTIAL LIST.
In compliancewith a request from East
Florida, we publish below as complete
a list of State officers and their clerks,
with the salaries paid same, as we can
make up from the appropriation acts
and from memory. That the list is not
altogether complete as to the full num-
ber employed and the amounts paid we
are quite sure, as new faces are often
seen in the department which has the
most help. In several instances, where
the salaries seem small, other payments
are made employees out of the Internal
Improvement and other funds. It will
also be seen that we do not include the


conscientious chief executive of the Supreme Court judges and their help, the
State, and this newspaper is not antag- asylum officers and their help, the in.

DUTIES OF THE PRESS.
Freedom of criticism is a privilege of
our newspapers which is in no danger
of being taken away. It is too essen-
tial a part of political liberty and social
and economic progress. It is too essen-
tial to freedom of mind and alertness
of mental life. As every advantage
has its shadow, so personal gossip, mean
detective scandal, and false romance in
criminal news come along as evils in
kite train of freedom, and some papers
there are of which the very existence
means both cruelty and putrefaction.
But when the liberties and the license
of journalism come before our conrts
and juries, there is seldom difficulty in
drawing clearly the line that devides
abuse from justice. Today more than
ever the organs of opinion throughout
this land are assured that for honest
and careful comment on men and acts
of public moment no punishment Il
likely to fall upon them. Such com-
ment is their duty, for they are guard-
ians of the people's welfare, as surely
as are teachers, statesmen, or ministers
of the gospl. A high mission is theirs,
a privilege, a call, and with every ed-
itor or newspaper owner should be ever
the devotion and the responsibility that
good men feel when power over others
lies within their hands. A man who
uses the vast powerof publicity toharm
the public for his own gain, or reckless-
ly and selfishly to Injure individuals, is
as wicked as an immoral clergyman or
venal office-holder. Little to enforce
journalistic standards can be done by
law. Most of it must be done by the
opinion of men and women, by encour-
agement of good, by refusal to co-op-
crate with ill Collier's Weekly.

reasons given to him by the commis-

ening to act to compel the officer to
furnish the information he was given
to understand that he did not intend to
be "butldosed" by any newspaperman.
To make a long story short, without
knowing any of the facts in the case,
Mr. Fitau raki returned to Jacksonville

The complainant company claims the
ownership of 1,070,257 acres of land in
the four counties named, upon which
drainage taxes amounting to $53,340.-
56 have been assessed, in addition to
$11,108.71 State and county taxes. The
bill sets forth the injustice of said
drainage tax, and alleges the unconsti-
tutionality of the act of the Legislature
on numerous grounds. It is understood
that other large owners of land in the
'drainage district" were also prepared
to contest the collection of the special
tax of five cents per acre levied there-
on under the authority of the act, but
it is probable that they will await the
issue of the present suit.
The drainage of the Everglades was
one of the most spectacular and promi-
nent of the "issues" upon which Gov-
ernor Broward was elected chief magis-
trate of the State, and the Legislature
promptly adopted his views on the sub-
ject in the enactment of the law which
is now attacked; and also adopted ares-
olution recommending an amendment
to the State Constitution having for its
purpose the permanent establishment
of a drainage commission similar to the
one created by the Legislature. This
proposed amendment will be submitted
at the general election next November.
Acting under authority of the act,
Governor Broward, as the representa-
tive of the drainage commission, has
not only directed the collection of the
special tax imposed, but has proceeded
to the expenditure of the funds intend-
ed to be raised thereby, by contracting
for the construction of expensive dred-
ges and other craft, to be used in the
proposed drainage operations.
A judgment of the courts declaring
the drainage scheme legislation void
will not only be a crushing blow to the
anticipation of Governor Broward for
extraordinary personal advantage in
whatever political aspirations he may
entertain, but may also seriously affect
his pecuniary status since the contracts
for the expenditure of the fund, as well
as whatever amounts may have been
collected and expended, under the au-
thority of a void act, may be the basis
of a personal obligation upon him to re-
fund the same.
The people of Florida at large, no less
than those who are, or were in danger
of being, directly affected by the levy-
ing of this "drainage tax," will watch
with deep solicitude the outcome of the
pending litigation.

Like a flashing thundebolt from a
cloudless sky, comes the news of the
commencement of a suit in the United
States court last week by the Southern
States Land and Lumber Company, a
Louisiana corporation, against Governor
Napoleon B. Broward and the other
members of the Board of Drainage
Commissioners created by an act of the
Legislature at its last session. The
purpose of the suit is to enjoin that
board from further proceeding under
the authority of the act, and to declare
unconstitutional and void. Included in
the list of parties defendant are the tax
collectors of St. Lucie, Dade, DeSoto
and Lee counties, whom the bill seeks
to enjoin from proceeding to collect the
special drainage tax, authorized by the
act.

a load o' bird shot in it, but I had it
cleaned up that morning' and loaded it
for bear, cause me and him had seen
bear tracks in the corn field and we was
aimin' to go huntin' next day. Dad
said: "I'll see if I cn scanre that fool
away." And he fired-and killed him!"
"Then dad got young Mr. Keith to
defend him, and Mr. Keith wanted him
to get a big lawyer to help, but dad
wouldn't 'cause he said we'd need all
the money he had in the bank to live
on, we wasn't big enough to gather
crops and sell syrup and potatoes like
he did, and a lawyer shouldn't have the
bread out of his children's mouths, and
maybe our little farm to boot. So Jake
Raker's folks hired them a lawyer and
he beat Mr. Keith talking' and tneudge
sent daddy to the mines- but Mr. Keith
said the Governor'd pardon him, sure.
And he will do it, won't he?"
In telling his troubles to this sympa-
thetic listener the backwoods child for-
got his natural shyness; he spoke rapid-
iy, eagerly, his fingers working with
nervousness, his eyes imploring hope.
"Indeed he will Bud," replied the
Governor, with conviction. "When he
knows the facts- if he hadn't been a
hard-headed, biggity sort of fellow he'd
have found out the facts for himself;
but, as I said, he don't do bad things
intentionally, and I can promise that
the baby'll have her own daddy before
many days."
"You favor daddy," said the little
rJrl, looking with shy adoration into the
face of the mighty being, possessed of
such infinite goodness. "The baby
thought you was him, when she waked
up.'
"Poor little mite! She won't pine
for him many days. I wish to mercy I.
could give him to her tonight! Now
show us where we're to sleep, little sis-
ter, for we must be on the way home
by daybreak. Don't either of you think
of getting up to cook breakfast or hitch
up; we won't want to eat so early, and
I saw where the horse was put-be-
sides, you might wake the baby."
The next morning, when they were
jogging along the sandy road in the crisp
coldness of early daybreak, the Gov-
ernor remarked: "We'll have to post-
pone our vacation a little while, old fel-
low. Next time we come down this
way I'm going to stop at Jasper Rol-
lins' house again-I want to see the
baby with her 'sure-enough' daddy."
"All right, Governor, I'm willing.
But," the Secretary could not resist
sending this small shaft, "how about
that speech you made the other day
concerning justice?"
Whereupon the Governor replied
briefly and reprehensibly: "Damn
justice!"
And I am satisfied that the heavenly
bookkeeper did not make an entry of
the remark!

"TI QAUTTOflERCT."

By Miss Anne McQueen, of Tallahas-
see, in Bob Taylor's Magazine for Feb-
ruary.
I.
The Pardoning Board, consisting nom-
inally of the Governor and members of
his cabinet, but whose acts were really
decided by the wishes of the Fxecutive
alone, was in council. They sat around
the long table in the executive office,
the Governor at the head, while from
the walls the portraits of his predeces-
sors looked solemnly down upon the
conclave. The present incumbent had
not held office long and he had all the
proverbial ardor of the new broom for
sweeping clean. With painstaking zeal
he had attacked the cobwebs and the
dust of former administrations, deter-
mined to leave no evidence of lax house-
keeping on his own part. Pardons had
been the rule in the past-granted with-
out warrant or discrimination, many
people held-and this was an error the
Governor was resolved to avoid. Little
wonder, then, that a petition for the
pardon of one Jasper Rollins, convicted
of manslaughter, and serving a term of
ten years in the phosphate mines of his
State therefore, should be refused.
"We've got to draw a line somewhere
gentlemen, said the Governor, virtuous-
ly. "The law is very little respected in
some of our back districts, as it is, and
this habit of wholesale pardoning only
leads to more crime. People clamor for
in the face of the most glaring offenses,
entirely overlooking the fact that there
is need for the exercise of justice also.
Too much mercy has been shown to
criminals. During my administration I
shall endeavor to see that justice be
done to all, without fear or favor!"
And, feeling a secret conviction that he
had gotten off a particularly choice bit
of eloquence, the Governor waited for
the approval of the Board. These gen-
tlemen were unanimous in cordially in-
t dorsing their chief's resolve, and, ad-
journing for dinner, straightway forgot
all about the matter.
His Private Secretary was to dine
with the Governor. As the two men
walked down the street, shaded with
huge, moss-draped live-oaks, they dis-
cussed, with the ardor of old sports-
men, a vacation trip they were to take
down on San Pedro's Bay, where the
fishing was fine, and wild turkeys, ducks
and squirrels abounded, and where even
such big game as deer and black bear
was not uncommon. Besides, it was
such an out-of-the-way place that it
was practically unknown, therefore
paradise for a true sportsman.
This trip had been postponed from
time to time, for the cares of state
were many, and the Governor's scrupu-
lous shoulders refused to shift the
burden. With painstaking fidelity he
had labored, and now he felt that the
time had come when he might take a
holiday without any qualms of con-
sciense for neglected duties. Every-.
thing was ready. The two were to
start the next day, taking with them
as little impediments as possible, for a
trip to the Bay meant a thirty-mile
drive through the flat woods after leav-
ing the nearest railroad station. They
would be royally entertained-and their
horse scantily-by old Dan Luke's, a
veteran fisherman and a mighty hunter,
whose corn patch bore but meager crops
of nubbins, but whose larder was al-
ways supplied with the choicest game
of the hammocks, and the fattest flasn
in the Bay; and who was "guide, phil-
esopher and friend" to all sportsmen
seeking that favored region.
As they approached the Governor's
residence a troop of merry children
came running to meet them, shouting at
the top of their lungs: "Here's daddy!
Hello, dad; what have you brought us ?"
The youngest, a curly-headed baby of
Stwo years, shouted as lustily as the
rest, but her short legs were uncertain.
she tripped over a gnarled root and fell
weeping in the dust, while her brothers
and sisters were embracing the Gov-
ernor and rifling his pockets with filial
freedom, sure of finding peanuts or ap-
ples in their capacious depths The
wails of the disappointed one rising to
his ears above the jubilant cries of the
S fortunate, he hastened to her aid, and.
wiping away the dusty tears, soon had
the small maid on his shoulder, crowing
in gleeful triumph while she nibbled the
reddest apple of the lot.
The paternal instinct was strongly de-
veloped in the Governor; "children took
to him" on first acquaintance, and were
his familiar friends; to the little brood
at home he was an ideal father, a


charming playmate, a wise and tender
counsellor, and, when occasion demand-
ed, a most patient and devoted nurse.
And, because he possessed these quali-
ties, this story is written.
II.
It is eas get lost in the flat-woods.
the count tirely monotonous, andt
there n arks by which one
can lity: when a road
fet tooh Mth sand the traveler
S in the of making another
Through the straw-covered aisles of
pines. These numerous roads are very
infusing, sometimes leading into the i
umn rn. and suometimes wanderingoff
to some lonely cabin in a clearing. The1
Governor and the Secretary-in neither
of whom was the bump of 4ocality very
well developed-joged alo through
-' the heavy sand, fondly hoping to e old


Dan Lukes' cabin at some inspected
turn in the road.
The sun sank lower and lower, the
great pine forest, flat as a table, with
scant undergrowth of scrub-oeks and
chinquapins, stretched all around them;
the sighing treetops, sighing in the,
evening wind, made mournfumuwie in
their ears. "This country," said the
Governor, irritably, "is so confounded-
ly alike! The last time I visited San
Pedro's Ba I came around the coaston
a sponge schooner; I thought sure I
could nd the way through the coun-
try, though. Well this road evidently
leads somewhere, tf it doesn't to old
man Lukes'. It's going to be a mighty
dark night, and if we do reach a cabin
I move that we stop till morning."
"Agreed," said the Secretary, "if
the folks'll let us."
"My dear boy, you are evidently un-
acquainted with the people of your na-
tive State! To turn away a stranger
seeking shelter would be an unheard of
thing in these flat-woods. Hello!
There's a rooster crowing! Now we'll
certainly and shelter, at least."
A few minutes' drive brought them
in sight of cultivated fields enclosed by
a well-built rail fence; following this
they soon reached a dwelling, unusually
commodious for that region, consisting
of two large rooms, built of hewn logs,
with ample "stick-and-dirt" chimneys;
they were divided by a small hall-way,
with two shed-rooms in the rear, and a
front porch, draped with frost-yellowed
velvet-bean vines. The small dooryard
was crowded with brilliant autumn
flowers-white, yellow, and rust-red
chrysanthemums, many colored zinnias
and velvety clumps of prince's feathers.
The air was mild, but it was late No-
vember and frost had fallen, its blight
showing on the rustling, withered cane,
and the patches of blackened potato
vines, which were on each side of the
house.
"Now that's caused by unadulterated
laziness," remarked the Governor with
severity, as he beheld the frost-bitten
potato and cane patches. "They've
put off digging potatoes and grinding
cane, till now they'll have sour syrup
and rotten potatoes, and no seed cane
saved."
"They may have a reason, observed
the Secretary. "I wouldn't be sur-
prised if the family were laid up with
the chills."
"No sir, you can count on its being
pure laziness! Yonder's a good-sized
boy digging potatoes and a little fellow
picking 'em up. Wonder where the
no-account father is? Fishing, I reckon.
Hello, Bud!" raising his voice. "Step
this way, will you?"
The boy, a lad about fourteen dropped
his hoe and came forward quickly, fol-
lowed closely by the small boy, a look
of eager expectancy in their eyes.
"We are lost, Bud," said the Gov-
ernor, who had already alighted, "and
want to stay all night with you. Been
trying to get to old man Dan Lukes'.
Can you tell us where he lives?"
The eager look died from the boy's
eyes, leaving them inexpressibly weary
and melancholy. He climbed over the
fence and quietly proceeded to unbuckle
the horse's harness. "Old man Lukes'
lives down on the edge o' the Bay.
You'd oughter took the Bay road, a
good piece from here," said he, speak-
ing in the slow, monotous tone of the
backwoods. "You-all go in and make
yourselves at home. I'll put up your
creeter and Jody'll tote in your things "
The Governor glanced triumphantly
at the Secretary. "Told you so," he
murmured; "welcome as flowers in
May."
Jody came obediently forward and be-
gan to tug at the big valise in the back
of the buggy. He had a pathetic little
face, with the same look of care and
weariness that was on his brother's.
"Hold on son," said the Governor,
"that's too heavy for your little hands.
You take this gun--it isn't loaded, and
here's a bunch of young squirrels we
shot on the road; they'll be good fried
for breakfast."
"Thanky, sir," murmured the child,
shyly. He took the squirrels and gun
and preceded them along the neatly
swept path that led to the house. As
they approached a little girl came softly
and swiftly to the door. "Come in
quiet," she whispered, "the baby's just
dropped off, an much noise awakes
her."
This child, like her brothers, bore
the same look of troubled care on her
serious little face; a face which had bid-
den adieu to childhood before its pleas-
ures were tasted. She gave her hand
in greeting to each of the strangers.
"You're welcome," she said, in the
same hushed tones, and led them, both
men walking on tiptoes, into one of the
large rooms, evidently' the living room
of the family Two large beds, heaped
high with feathers and covered with
gay patchwork quilts stood in opposite
corners; on the wide hearth a cheerful
fire of pineknots blazed and sputtered
merrily; a comfortable home-made rock-
er, with broad arms and cowhide seat,
>tood on each side of the hearth, with a


child's tiny chair in the middle, a rag
doll lying prone on the floor before it.
The little girl pointed silently to the
chairs, glancing at the same time
toward a small, shawl-covered heap on
one of the beds The men seated them-
selves quietly, and the child piled fresh
Hightwood-knots on the blaze; then she
left the room, returning in a few min-
utes with a pitcher of fresh water and
a glass, which she filled and offered in
turn to each, with the shy formula: "I
reckon you-all are thirsty; won't you
have a drnk?"
They drank and thanked her, and she
withdrew, to busy herself in cooking
supper for the family, of whom she
sOemed the housemother. The boy
were busy, too, for neither appeared
till supper time, when the elder came
to the and announced gravely that
the meal was ready, Isadiul them to
the water-ehelf on the Roet porch,


sotto voce, "he is a mighty big fool,
sometimes!"
"Do you know him?" the little girl's
tones were eager, though guarded and
low. "Then please tell him the truth
about it, for I am 'fraid little Lizzie
won't live if daddy don't come back.
She's puny, and frets so, and every
night she wakes up cryin for daddy.
His name is Jasper Rollins, and he- he
shot a man!"
"But father wouldn't 'a' shot Jake
Raker interrupted the boy, eagerly,
"if Jake hadn't a' been crazy drunk
on moonshine, and a-ahootin' andcusin'
everybody. And dad ordered him off,
bat he wouldn't go, but kept shooting'
and a bullet come, mhty nigh hitting
the baby. Then a t Wd and

whtthey wen laIt.ed to "take a
wash" befoe esting. The supper con-
sisted of hoo-erko, hot biscuit, syrup
and coffee, and was plentiful and neatly
served, the coarse cloth white as wow
and the steel and tin cutlery well pol-
, isheld. The travelers ate with appetite
keen from loa fasting. "You are a
mighty smart title ir to cook this nice
supper," aaid the Governor, heartily.
"Mamma and papa away I reckon."
"Mamma's dead; she died two years
ag, whem the baby was right little,"
said the little girl slowly.
"And our father's away, but he'll
soon be back" put in the elder brother,
bravely helping hs sister over some ap-
parrent diiculty. "Won't you-all have
some more biscuit?" hastily.
"Yes," said the girl. "I 'lowed you
was hungry ridin' so far, an' I cooked
a heap o' biscuit. You-all must eat
hearty."
"Indeed we will said the Governor.
"Take another, Tom. Did you ever
eat better biscuit?"
The Secretary vowed he never did;
and after this incident, the men seeing
that the children wished to avoid speak-
ing of family affairs, and being gentle-
men, born and bred, confined their con-
versation to the cheerful subjects of
hunting and fishing; of big fish caught
and big game killed, till the grave faces
of their entertainers lighted up with in-
terest, and some look of childish pleas-
ure shone from their sad young eyes.
Supper over, the men sat on the
porch, and smoked their cherished pipes
while the children washed the supper
dishes. When this task was finished
they were again invited to come into
the fire for it was becoming chilly as
the night advanced, and there was the
feel of frost in the air. As they enter-
ed the room where the sleeping baby
lay, the unusual bustle aroused her; she
struggled from the covers and sat upin
bed, staring at the strangers. The
Governor stood facing the fire; sudden-
ly he turned, and the baby caught sight
of his face. "Daddy! Daddy!" she
screamed, holding out her arms and
struggling violently to get from the
bed.
I have said that the paternal instinct
was strongly developed in the Governor.
In a moment he was at the bedside
with the child in his arms, murmuring
soothing 'baby talk' as he pressed the
little head to his bosom.
The effect of this scene on the poor
little group was startling. The girl--
poor child, she was not more than
twelve, yet her slight shoulders seemed
drooping with the weight of years--hid
her face in her hands and sobbed ilent-
ly; the small boy threw himself on the
foor and wept aloud sobbing passion-
ately. "I want my daddy! Oh, I want
him so!" His brother leaned over him,
tears in his own eyes.
"Don't you fret Jody," he murmur-
ed, soothingly. "Daddy'll come back
sure; the lawyer said he would."
"No, he won't!" shrieked the child in
frenzied grief. "Mr. Keith said the
Governor d send daddy right back from
them mines but I been up the road
ev'y day and looked and looked, and to-
day I thought sure them strangers wat
coming' to tell us the Governor'd sent
our daddy home! He ain't never coming !
And the baby'll die, 'cause I heard Mis
Maddox say she was pnin' away for
sight of daddy. The Governor's a mean,
bid man, and I hate him!" Sob
choked the piteous voice, gradually dy-
ing away into a subdued moaning as
his brother knelt beside him, stroking
the tumbled head and whispering,
"Don't cry Jody, don't cry; you'll wake
up little Lizzie"
Fur the baby was once more asleep,
her thin little arms about the Govern-
or's neck, her head on his shoulder,
while he walked up and down the floor,
singing softly a lullaby that was always
a soporific for his own baby. When she
was soundly asleep he laid her down,
covering the little form as carefully
and lightly as a mother could have
done.
The Secretary was a bachelor; he
knew nothing of children, and though
his heart ached to witness their grief.
he could think of nothing to comfort
them, so he sat staring into the fire,
and did not attempt to offer contola-
tion.
Not so the Governor. The baby safe- I
ly asleep, he moved softly to the tire-
side, lifted the silently weeping boy
from the floor, and sat rocking him
softly, till a long, quivering sigh came
from the child's parted lips, his drawn
features relaxed, and he, too, slept
peacefully in the arms of the highest
official in the State
When the child was laid softly beside
the sleeping baby the Governor spoke
to the older children, and his voice was
meek, nay, humble. Very unlike the
impressive tones in which he had deliv- I
ered the encomiums on justice, before
the Board. "What is your father's
name, children, and what did he do that
he had to go to the minds? Maybe the
Governor doesn't know the facts of the
case. I promise you I'll do all in my
power to help you. I know the Gov-
ernor, and he isn't a bad man though
he turned to the Secretary and finished

Day.
a- a the Amt of a series of articles
hkh is to appear in 8Cleve-
land Moffet due t mies of
wealth in the United States. He
wvites:
RICHEST IN CITIBs
"New York is beyond comparison
the richest city in existence; the New
York Herald estimates its wealth at
thirteen thousand million dollars. And
to the country at large the last annual
report of the controller of currency
shows that the stock of gold in the Urn-
States ($1,320,400,000) is greater than
that of any other land, while our bank-
ing power amgiregatea nearly fourteen
billion as against less than twenty billion
for all foreign countries. We produce
one-third of the world's coal, one-thira
of its grain, one-fifth of the wheat, and
three-fourths of its cotton. We pnr.
duce more steel and iron than Englar d
and Germany put together and otur
manufactures are nearly double those
of Great Britain and Ireland combined.
Our railroads carry twice as much mer-
chandise every year as is carried by
the railroads of all the other nations of
the earth put together. Our general
working power in 1895 was estimated
at 129,306,000,000 foot tons daily or
nearly as much as the combined work-
ing power of Great Britain, German-
and France. From all of which it re-
sults that our wealth is increasing at a
prodigous rate. Josiah Strong in his
'Social Progress' says at the rate of
eight million dollars a day, and experts
declare that nearly two-thirds of this
increase goes to swell the possessions
of those who are already rich.
IN THE OLD DAYS
"James Bryce in 'The American
Commonwealth' observes that up to
1830 or 1840 that there were no great
fortunes in America, few large fortunes
and no poverty. But, writing of the
later eighties, he says: 'Now there is
some poverty, many large fortunes1
and a greater number of gigantic for-
tunes than in any other country in the
-world.' That was twenty years ago!
SWhat would Mr. Bryce say today if he
could read statistics showing that there
are three million officially recognized
paupers in the United States? at a
million and a half children between the
ages of ten and fifteen are employed in.
our mines and factories? That one per-
.son in every twelve who die in New
York city is buried in the potter's field?
"As showing the rapid growth of in-
dividual fortunes in this country there
is interest in a list of rich men printed
by the New York Sun in 1856 according
to which New York city at that time
boasted only twenty-eight millionaires.
And a pamphlet published some years
earlier says that in 1845 Philadelphia
could show only ten estates valued at a
Million or more, the richest being that
of Stephen Girard which reached seven-
ty mi6ion. In which in contrast of
1892 according to the New York Trib-
une, there were then over two hundred
millionaires in Philadelphia."
CONCENTRATED WEALTH
Without mentioning the names Mr.
Moffet offers the following estimate ol
the five thousand leading fortunes in
the United States.
"It is only an approximation but it
has been approved as reasonably by the
statistical expert of R G Dun & Co.,
and by Byron W. Holt, editor of
Moody's Magazine, a monthly review
for bankers, investors and men of af-
fairs, also by several financial authori-
ties in New York city to whom I have
submitted it. I have seen higher esti-
mates, but, after careful consideration,
I believe that this one may be accepted
as well within the truth;
Number of Fortunes. Amount.
10 aggregating.... $ 2,000,000,000.00
490 aggregating.... 3,000,000,000 00
4600 aggregating --- 10,000,000,000.00
5000 aggregating $15,000,000,000.00
"So the five thousand men in this
country actually own (without counting
what they control) nearly one-sixth ol
our national wealth, money, land, build-
ings, mines, industries, everything,
which sixth if put into gold would give
them all the gold in the world and leave
more than nine thousand million dollars
still owing them! All this for five
S thousand men, absolutely theirs wheth-
o r they work or not, whether the de-
serve it or not, whether they use t well
or not, all this in a land where, accord-
ing to Waldron's 'Handbook of Curren-
cy and Wealth,' more than four million
families, or nearly one-third of the na-
tion, must get along on incomes of less
than $400. So, if present conditions
continue one looks ahead vainly for


some brightening in the picture of our
poverty and wealth; our mi=sey and af-
fluence, our luxury and want. Things
will be worse not better and every year
will show a more painful contrast be-
tween the few who have everything,
and the many who lack everything.

Dr. Riecler ifr Few lays.
Hon. W. A. Bawls, the well known
Tallahaseeean, is in the city for a few
uasy the guest of his friend, Dr. Louis
Mr. Rawls is greatly mpressed with
the great business a .de wavn Penaa-
cola i making and with the prosperity
of her people which is apparent on all
sides. He thinks the city has the most
prosperous look which he has ever wit-
nessed.
Mr. Rswls is one of the most proni-
nent fiures in the history of Florida
polities and is known all over the State,
He was at one time chairman of the
State Democratic Executive Committee
and he was a particularly active factor,
in the great Chi ley-Call fight of ten
years ago. Mr. Rawls a nowacandidate

I nportant to Florida.
Owing p.rhans to a reprehensible law
oZ .oliiico it is no often that an im-
portant committee assignment is made
to a Democratic member of the Repub-
lican senate. But last week such an
appointment was made and Florida is
thereby the beneiliciary. Senator Mal-
lory has been assigned to the Naval af-
fairs Committee, and as Florida is one
of the few states that has a navy yard.
more coast line than any state and
about as much land as water, this se-
lection is in the very nature of things a
most appropriate one, and we congrat-
ulate both our senator and the State in
general upon his selection to this im-
portant field of activity.
In this connection it may be mention-
ed that Senator Mallory is also a mem-
ber of the Committee on Commerce.
This committee occupies the same rela-
tion to the Senate that the Rivers and
Harbors Committee does to the House,
and it is through recommendations of
these committees of the two Houses,
that appropriations are made for the
purposes indicated by their respective
ttles. Mr. Sparkman is a member of
the Rivers and Harbors Committee of
the House, and we are here reminded
that some weeks ago a robust champion
of Mr. Lamar mentioned the memfold
things he was going to do for Pensacola
harbor, and the blessings that were to
follow in the train of his energies. As
a matter of fact Mr. Lamar, not being
a member of that committee, is as pow-
erless to do anything for Pensacola
harbor, or any other harbor, river,
creek or canal as the ghost of Hamlet
or the recumbent figure of the late Pat-
rick Henry. Anyone with the informa-
tion of a half-baked Chinese idol knows
that legislation is conducted in commit-
tee rooms, and it is upon the recom-
mendation of a committee that the
House or Senate bases its actions. It
is a wise provision in our scheme, or as
some would express it our science of
government, to reduce a statesman's
enthusiasm to the committees of which
he is fortunate enough to be a member
and all claim to the contrary savors of
the agitator, the ward heeler, and other
agencies that defie American politics.
Having recounted this article contains
in the beginning, together with the ob-
servations that follow, it is a matter of
congratulation that Florida has been
fortunate in its c)mmi:tee assignments,
and with the ability and experience of
those who represe it u. the State may
rely upon patriotic vigo in everything
that pertains to its interests.-Lees-
