Governor Broward has in the last
issue of the Jacksonville Sun a com-
munication to the editor of that paper,
in which he gives excepts from his re-
cent Jacksonville speech, in which he
was alleged to have abused all the
Florida papers and characterized them
as venal. He disclaims any purpose to
include the entire Florida press in his
denunciation and says that he had in
mind only the Jacksonville Times-Union
and the Jacksonville Metropolis. Here
now is a conflict of testimony between
those two papers and the Governor
which we leave them to settle, and, ac-
cepting his disclaimer as to the rest of
us, the real issue still remains just
where it was, and that is the expediency
of entering upon a work of enormous
cost to the people of the State, pro-
longed through years, and which may
prove impracticable in the end as an
engineering proposition-and all for the
doubtful equivalent of getting a big
sugar farm for the State. A very rich
State like New York or Illinois might
well shrink from such a costly under-
taking with such uncertain results-an
und-.rtaking deemed quixotic, even im-
i(osible, by many engineers of estab-
li.hud reputation, and discredited by a

stomach was so weak from useless drugs
that I could not eat, and my nerves so
wrecked that I could not sleep; and not

be assigned for his rash act, unless it
be that he brooded over his health
which has not been good since his re-

fired it off before the shot which ended
