One year ago tomorrow th erst iMss
of The Tee Democrat appeared, and
this issue to the first of "Volume 2."
S In reviewing the career of the paper
for the first year of its existence, it in

agement that we have received from
them; without which our labors and ef-
forts would, indeed, have seemed in
vain.
One of the cardinal principles with
which we undertook the establishment
of The True Democrat was-and still
is to tell the truth! We realized that
there was need of a bold, fearless, and
conscientious newspaper at the capital
of the State that would do that very
thing, regardless of personal interests
or political complications; and the greet-
ing with which our little paper has
been received, both at home and abroad,
and from our esteemed contemporaries
throughout the State, prove that our
judgment wan correct. In the words of
a well-known poet, we felt that
"A timern like this deman..l

Men whom the lust of orile. does not kill;
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;
Men who pIimea opinion and a will;

Weonwi rules the land, and waiting Justice le.*.-'p"
In line with this principle, we have
endeavored to arouse the interest of
our fellow citizens throughout the State
to a review of the recent political his-
tory of Florida, and to direct their
thoughtful attention to the fact that
they have been deeply wronged by men
whom they have entrusted with the
conduct of the public business. In so
doing we have averred and pointed to
the evidence to prove it that the epi-
demic of "graft" which has prevailed
throughout the country had its promot-
ers and imitators in the very midst of
our body politic and among the chosen
representatives of our political organi-.
zation In so doing we had no desire or
intention to merely pose as reformers,
for we well knew that reforms are of
slow growth and doubtful results. In
Washington city, the capital of the na.-
tion, the postoffice grafters were ex-
poewld and denounced by the newspapers
s'x months before the officials took ac-
tion; in St. Louis the methods of the
municipal boodlers were publicly ex-
iM)Ited six months before Folk began his
most effective work; for many months
the New York newspapers exposed the
life Insurance infamies before any offi.

correction; the Philadelphia newspapers

The eurae to try-It-aain.

Hon. J. C. Bralsden, of Live Oak, has
been appointed by the Governor to fill
the vacancy on the Board of Control,
made vacant by the resignation of Hon.
Nathan Adams.
Gov. Broward may think he is bound
by his campaign promises to reclaim
the Everglades. But, not at our ex-
pense, please. It is well to keep a
promise but it may be better to reverse
a foolish opinion. Times- Union.
The Ohio mob this week were not
satisfied with an attempt to illegally
punish negroes who committed crime,
but burned property and got after all
the negroes they could find. There is
no excuse offered for mobbing and
lynching in the South, but when a
Southern mob gets to recklessly meting
out punishment it goes no farther than
at the culprits. No one ever hears of
their harming innocent and law-abiding
negro citizens, and burning their homes.
If Governor Broward believes that
his promise to drain the Everglades won
him his election, he must be learning
now that something might have been
said on the other side. It sounds big to
claim that millions of acres might be
added to the public domain, but the
average Floridian known as little about
the Eevergladena s about the desert of
Sahara, and the Gove' r'r had never
seen the region-perha; a he has seen
very little of It yet. Timi s-Union.
Many State papers are engaged in
trying to impress upon their readers
the very great importance of electing
this year the very best men avaihlile
for legislative honors. We fail to f,f
why so much more importance attnrlc.e
to legislators this year than befr,"..
True, it Is expected that much legisla-
tion o' vast importance to the welfare
of the entire Htate will be brought for-
ward at the next legislative session,
but that is always the case, and like.
wise it should )e the rule every election
year to elect only the h lat men avail-
able for legislative hono- Madimsn
New Enterprine.
The Timen-Union very truthfully mays,


"No argument in needed as to the pon-
mlbilityof draining the Everglades No
testimony as to the value of lands that
might be reclaimtul can enter into the
ease, since those lands will not ih needed
till our great-grandchildren come upon
the State, We have troubles of our
own to which correction has long been
due, but a scarcity of land is not one of
them. Let us live for today tomorrow
will take careof itself If all the waste
could be corrected we would have money
enough to drain the Everglades, and if
the desire for this work will inspire cor-
rection and amendment, we might
promise that all sums saved could be
roneerated to the work not else. Iet
the drainage go until a higher standard
of honesty and public morality provides
the money and we will be satisfied,
even If the money is wasted."

An important ense was heard 'in yes-
terday by the Sunpreme Court It is an
original proceeding in mandamus,
brought on the relation of the Attorney-
General against the Atlantic Const Line
Railroad Company to compel that com-
pany to obey an order of the R;i ilroad
Commission directing it to enrry and
distribute between stations the mate-
rial and laborers of the Piatal Tele-
graph Company for the purpose of con-
structing and maintaining its line be-
tween Jacksonville and Lakeland, in
the manner that it carries for the West-
ern Union Telegraph Company.
The case was argued by (ol D. W.
Rountree, of Atlanta, Ga., counsel for
the Postal Telegraph Company and by
Hon. Fred T. Myers of this city, who
appeared for the State. Counsel for
the Atlantic Coast Line having asked
for further time, were allowed until
March 10 to file briefs.

The House committee on agriculture
Tuesday decided by a vote of 8 to 7 not
to recommend any appropriation to buy
seeds for free distribution by the De-

a saving of about $250,000 annually.

It would seem that some of our north-
ern states, now that they have the col.
ored citizens among them, havrd some
race prejudice and can do the mobbing
act. Read the following from a Spring.
field, Ohio, dispatch of the 27th:
Tonight mob violence prevailed here,
as a result of a shooting in the railroad
yards early this morning in which M.
M. Davis, a brakeman, was perhaps fa-
tally shot by two negroes Preston
Ladd, of Bellefontaine, and Edward
Dean, of this city. Ladd was taken to
the hospital this morning, as a result of
injuries received presumably in connec-
tion with the shooting of Davis, where
he lies in a ward adjacent to his vic-
tim. Dean was taken to Dayton after
a hurried conference of officials. A
mob of one thousand men and boys
formed and marched to "The Jungles,"
a locality inhabited by colored people,
with the announced purpose of burning
that section.
Mayor Todd shortly after 9 o'clock
asked that companies B and E of the
Third regiment, Ohio National Guards,
be called out. The mob soon reached
"The Jungles" and battered one house
to pieces with stones and battering
rams. A general fire alarm was sound-
ed. The sounding of the gongs served
to fill the streets with people and the
feeling in the crowds was tense. The
mob entered Kempler's saloon in East
Columbia street and quickly looted it.
Kempler and his wife fled, leaving their
three little children asleep in a room
over the saloon The building was rid-
died with bullets and stones, and it was
only by the hardest efforts of police and
firemen that a way was forced through
the mob and the children rescued. Af-
ter the pillaging of the saloon drunken.
ness was an added feature of the riot.
At 11 o'clock members of the mob
broke through a cordon of police and
set fire to a house which was quickly
burned down.
Sergeant Creager who had charge of
the police, was hit on top of the head
with a brick and seriously injured. A
request was sent out at 10 o'clock for
Xenia military company. At midnight
six houses which had been fired by the
mob were burning fiercely, and the po-
lice had apparently lost control of the
situation.
At 12:45 a. m. Sheriff Almoney wired
Gov. Patterson as follows:
"Send all possible troops tonight and
hold others in readiness for tomor-
row."
The mob is stoning and jeering the
nilitiamen, but a show of bayonets has
Alfficed so far to keep the rioters on the
move. The rumor that out of town
troop arc momentarily expected is hav-
ing a quieting effect.
Shortly after midnight four compan-
ies of the Fourth Regiment of Colum-
bus were ordered to assemble at the
armory and await further instructions.
Two companies of the Third Regiment
at I)ayton and another at Irrlanat are
alo waiting orders.

The 2 6esa rage.
We get upOur own editorial column.
Wber it ls a failure or not we leave
atr readers to judg.-Perry Citisen.
And t is simple truth, with no alloy
of flattery, to aay that your editorial
column is a good one, brother, and
shows that you devote to it careful and
intelligent work. It never pays an ed-
itor to slight his editorial page, for it is
that which determines the character
and influence of a paper. Your neigh-
bor may be a good gossip and be able
to tell you all the new of the neighbor-
hood everyday when you meet him, and
for that reason he has a certain public
value; but unless he be also a man of
strong convictions and sound, intelligent
views and opinions on matters of gen-
eral interest he will have very little or
no weight or influence in the commu-
nity. And that illustrates the relation
of the newspaper to its public. If it
makes itself merely a purveyor of news
and gossip and omits entirely, or treats
of little account its editorial page, it
will undoubtedly be useful in a way and
sought for but of influence it will have
none, for, having neither opinions nor
convictions it is entitled to none. This
analogy holds good still further, for,
with the paper as with the man weight
and influence are determined by char-
acter and ability, and the paper weak
on its editorial page, no less than the
man of inferior abilities and lacking in
the fiber of strong character, must be
content to play a subordinate role. It
is sometimes said, in disparagement of
newspaper influence (generally by those
with whom the wish is father to the
thought), that "r.obody reads the edi-. i
trialss" Don't you believe it. Edito-
rials worth re=adng always find read-
ers; those not worth it don't deserve,
them. And while it is doubtless true'
that the editorial page has a smaller!
circle of patrons than the news depart-'
ment of the paper, it is equally true
and more than compensating that that
smaller circle generally represents the'
best of character, culture and intelli-
gence in the community--the people I
who lead, who dominate-and through j
them the editorial influence of the paper d
is transmitted, directly or indirectly, in
numerable ways, by word or deed, to d
the entire body of its readers and be-
yond them. The strong writer is as d
sure of a following as the strong talker,
and it is generally a much morediscrim-
inate and thoughtful following and ex-' 1
erting a correspondingly larger influ-
ence. Live Oak Democrat.

The Olustee Nonument. d
Contributions for the fund to provide
for the erection of a suitable monument

to commemorate the battle of Oluatee
are being steadily sent in, and Mr. D. U.
Fletcher, treasurer of the Oluatee Monu-
ment Commission, has received contri-
butions thus far that total nearly $400.
From the Florida Division, United
Daughters of the Confederacy, by Mrs.
Clifton B. Gwynn, treasurer, $149.45,
was received. From Anna Jackson
Chapter, U. D C., of Tallahassee, by
Miss Jennie Kirkman Brevard, treas-
urer, came $125.87. The balance is
made up as follows: Father Ryan Chap-
ter, U. 1). C., Hartow, by Mrs. Will
Jordan, treasurer, $5; Mrs. M. C. Mur-
phy, Jacksonville. U. D. C., $13.67, and
Mrs. D. H Wilson. treasurer of Pensa-
cola Chapter. U. I). C., $5. This makes
a total of $398.99 that has thus far
been sent in to Mr. Fletcher, treasurer
of the Olustee Monument Commission.
It is earnestly hoped that all chapters I
of the United Daughters of the Con-
federacy, and all Camps of Veterans
and Sons of Veterans will send in their
contributions within the next few days,
as the Commission desires to reach a
decision on the character and size of
the monument as soon as possible, and
to have it erected without further de-
lay.
Of course the size of the monument,
and to some extent the character of it,
must depend on the amount of money
which is at the disposal of the Comrnis-
sion. An urent a eal is therefore
made to afl the patriotic people of the
State to aid in making the monument
a creditable one.
The importance of the battle of Olus-
tee, and the unnamable horrors that
were averted through the defeat of the
enemy by the Confederate arms make
the battle one that will never be for-
otten by the people of Florida. At
he recent reunion of the Florida Divi-
eion, United Confederate Veterans, the
project of a monument on the battle-
rield was most heartily endorsed, and
many of the camps subscribed varying
amounts for the purpose.
All contributions should be sent to
the treasurer of the commission, Mr.
D. U. Fletcher, of Jacksonville, as
moon as possible.

PATENT MEDICINES.
The term "patent medicine" isa mis-
nomer, as these medicines are not and
could not be patented, since in order to
obtain a patent on anything the inven-
tor or manufacturer must disclose the
process of the manufacture to the min-
utest detail. Should there be wilful de-
ception the inventor is liable to fine and
punishment. There are, however, med-
icines put up for use of physicians which
are truly patents, not secrets, the word
patent meaning "to be open." If the
ingredients of the medicines were wide-
lyknown there would be little or no
sale for the vast array of "patent"
i medicines. These medicines are only
trade-marked so no other manufacturer
S'may use the same name.
This is the only country that permits
such drugs to be thrown upon the mar-
ket. Every other nation puts safe-
W. guards about the people as to the medi-
f cines sold. England requires that every
medicine containing opium or morphine
aahave upon the lael the word "poison."
Therefore, in that country Mrs. Wins-
low's Soothing Syrup is labelled
"poison." Hut in America there is no

PUBLISHED VERY FRIDAY MORNING.

Sheld Be Stped.
A society for the prevention of cruel-
t of animals is badly needed in this
ty There is no fair-minded man who
wiI dispute this statement, and the
sooner one is organized and gets Into
working order in this city the better
recommendation it will be for theplace.
Horses which are employed in some
of the public vehicles of the city
stand in the harness from daylight to
dark, at times being fed in the streets
(which is against the law) and standing
or many hours in all kinds of weather
without the vestige of a protection
from the elements except that provided
by nature for them. Thin is something
which could be atoppied by an applica-
tion of the city statute,. and officers
would be doing a good thing to bestir
themselves and look intoea the violation
of such humane laws Strangers corn-
ing to the city are ih'ard daily talking
ofthe cruelties in the way of long ser-
vice, overloading, over-drivarg, etc., of
horses arid mules, arid one of them ex-
pressed the. 'reatest surprise yesterday
when told that there was ino attention
given the ariimals in this place in the
way of ,toppirig crul ty.
It can be said to the credit, of the po-
lice court judge that It, urges officers
to stop cruelties, and when a man is
brought Itbfore the biar for ill-treating a
dumb beast and the facts s, merit, the
defendant suffers severely.
While it night affect a great many in
this place, the ordinance preventing
cruelty should Ie applied in all its force,
and thus put a stop to practices which
are a crying shame t our city and which
bring down condemnation on its officers
and citizens. -Pensacola News.

same applies here.

Draining the Iverglades.
Leaving aside all disputed points as
to the proposed work of draining the
Everglades, there are some' plain, mat-
ter-of-fact considerations well worthy
the attention of the people of Florida,
The State may or may not have the
right to tax private owners for benefit
anaferred on their property hy the
canals these benefits may be' slight or
important the waters of Okeechobee
may or may not be connected with the
sVa, aind it may or may not. be neces-
eiry to budil a dyke on the northern
edge to keep back the rains of the wet
season. And still we should remrnmbe~r:
1. The drainage, even if successful,
will cost a sunm oi money that might be
better devoted to half a dozen other
purposes T'o the Florida of today, for
instance, a system of highways would
cost less than the drainage, and would
be vastly more profitable.
2 The area of valuable land to Ie
reclaimed by successful drainage would
be c.'mparatively small, anid the' cot

the contrary, the oliervations of army

and of many individuals make it cer-

Ask Tear Draggist
About Fewer Gallons; Wears Longer.
A shrewd merchant who is a constant
advertiser says, "when I want the peo-
ple in a certain territory to get so fa-
miliar with me that they will think of
me whenever they are in need of goods
in my line I want to speak to them in
every issue of the paper they get."
That sounds very much like good com-
mon sense.-Live Oak Democrat.
A divorce suit plaintiff in Jacksonville
the other day thinking to hurry things
up so that he might get "spliced"
again, perhaps, sent $2 in a letter to
Judge Call, urging haste in his case.
"e now languishes in Duval county jail
under a thirty-days sentence for con-
tempt, and will not be likely to offend
agafn. His experience should be a war-
ning to impatient suitors.
The Live Oak Democrat says the peo-
ple of Florida demand to know why
Isaiah Cooper, the Punta Gorda con-
demned-to-death man, was again re-
spited by the Governor at the eleventh
hour on Friday last. "Are not the peo-
ple entitled to know?" asks the Demo-
crat. They certainly are, but the peo-
ple may never know all of the workings
of the State Board of Pardons.--Jack-
sonville Metropolis.
The following is an extract from the
diary of E. B. Washburne, American
Minister to France during the seige of
Paris: "Nov. 23, 1870.-The new quo-
tations for to-day are as follows: For
cats-a common cat, eight francs; a
Thomas cat, ten francs; for rats-a
common rat, two francs; long-tailed
rat, two francs and a half; for dogs-
a cur of low degree, two francs a
pound; for a fat dog, two and a half
francs; and for a '-- fat dog' three
francs per pound."
A It would be very satisfactory to the
public if Governor Broward and the
pardoning board would give the reasons
which have induced them to reprieve
Cooper, the Punta Gorda murderer, so
often. Without condemning their act-
ion, assuming that they have sufficient
reasons, the Times would like to see
those reasons in print. And it might
not be deemed disrespect to the author-
ities to say that the absence of those
reasons from print will be deemed equiv-
alent to their absence from fact-Tampa

Near Lake City, about 9 o'clock last
Saturday George, son of Mr. J. R.
Combs, about 12 years of age, met with
a very severe accident. It appears that
he with other children, were at work at
a small mill on his father's place, used
mostly for cutting stove wood, when by
some means his hand came in contact
with the swiftly-moving saw and took
it off just at the base of the thumb. A
doctor was called as soon as possible
and amputated at the wrist. Tne little
fellow is doing as well as could be ex-
pected.

ABSURD FALSEHOODS.
Told About the Treatment of E .
ployes on Key West Extension.
The Southern Investor, in the Febru- l
ary isoue, speaks thus of the falsehoods -
circulated regarding alleged troubles
on the work of extending the Florida
l'ast Coast Railway:
"The employment of thousands of hI -
borers on the greatenterprise of H M.
Flagler along the keys of Florida the
extension of the Florida East Coa. t
Kailway on to Key West-necessarily
takes care, while the offer of work to
unemployed is something abused by ir-
responsible men who deceive the em-
ployment agents.
e'This company states very clearly
what the conditions are in engaging la-
borers, and is acting in good faith. Mr.
Flagler's officials are doing everything
possible to make the men comfortable
and contented.
"The absurd newspaper articles re-
cently appearing in the New York dai-
lies are unwarranted. URi COUG CO.
