The action of the drainage Board in
Tallahassee Thursday (in face of the
decision of the United States Court re-
straining the collection of the drainage
tax against the Southern States Land
and Timber Company) in ordering the
tax collectors in the counties of Dade,
DeSoto, Lee, Osceola and St. Lucie to
collect the tax, has raised a storm of
protest, as it is considered an outra-
geous and arbitrary act, as it was gen-
erally considered the Southern States
Land and Timber Company's law suit
was a test case, and this action now of
the Drainage Board works a great hard-
ship on the poorer owners of the lands
affected.
MAJOR ST. CLAIR-ABRAMS VIEWS.
The following letter from the able
lawyer Major St. Clair-Abrams will
be read with interest all over the Atate.
It is as follows:
Jacksonville, March 24, 1906.
To the Editor of The Metropolis:
The action of the Drainage Board in
Tallahassee in refusing to suspend the
collection of the taxes in the drainage
district in South Florida until there has
been a final adjudication as to its legal-
ity is so grossly unjust to numerous small
owners of lands embraced in the district
that I think the attention of the public
should be called to it.
As the decision of the board is direct-
ly to my peculiar interest as a lawyer I
cannot be charged with going into print
in the matter for my personal benefit.
POOR PEOPLE ONLY HURT.
The result of the order is that the
owners of large bodies of land have
now instructed their attorneys to file
bills to enjoin the collection of the tax
or the sale of their lands for non-pay-
ment thereof. This will leave at the
mercy of the tax collectors only those
small owners who are unable to afford
the expense. If the law should finally
be declared unconstitutional these small
taxpayers will have no relief save
through an appropriation by the Legis-
lature to refund them the money paid
and these are the very persons on whom
payment will work the greatest hard-
ship.
I have received so many applications
for advice on the subject from persons
in Dade and adjacent counties, and am
so busily employed at this time, that I
am unable to reply to each individual
separately, and must therefore, ask in
your columns to give general advice on
the subject.
Where the aggregate of this tax is
over $2,000 the United States Courts
have jurisdiction under the fourteenth
amendment to the constitution of the
United States.
Where the aggregate of this tax is
less than $2,000 the remedy must be in
the State courts, and should be by bill
in chancery to prevent multiplicity of

Is it possible that the people of Flor-
ida will ever elect a single one of those
who are responsible for such as the
above to office again? We have repeat-
edly called attention to the high-handed
acts of some of them. If the newspaper
men of Florida will look into public
matters some for themselves, some of
them will learn that the True Democrat
is, and has been, on the right track,
and they will find the trail red hot.
There are, and have been, many public
abuses that should be corrected. Flor-
idians are long suffering, but the day
will come for a reckoning.
For Clean Streets.
Our Mayor, Hon. F. C. Gilmore, de-
sires to have Tallahassee neat and
clean. Read. the following notice he
had printed and distributed this week:
NOTICE.- -Your attention is called to
chapter 17, section 12. of the Laws and
Ordinances of the City of Tallahassee,
which reads as follows:
Chapter 17, Section 12.-No person
shall throw or deposit, or cause to be
thrown or deposited, any decayed fruit,
waste paper, shavings, offal, garbage,
dirt or trash of any kind, on any side-
walk, street, lane, road, thoroughfare,
right-of-way or alley within the city
limits Any person violating any of
the provisions of this section shall,
upon conviction before the Mayor, be
fined not less than $5600 nor more than
$20 00 or be imprisoned for not less
than five nor more than twenty days.
The citizens are respectfully asked to
have this trash put in barrels and
placed, when full, on edge of the side-
walk or where they can be easily
reached oy the scavenger wagon.

THE WHELERL
MEMORIAL.

Elaborate Prgma Prepared and Car-
rted Out Tuesday-Blue sad
Grey Reunion.
The memorial to General Joseph
Wheeler was held in Atlanta Tuesday,
March 27, there being a notable gather-
ing of veterans of the North and South
to do honor to the honored leader of two
wars. The event had assumed in ad-
dance a national character and as was
expected there was a very large at-
tendance from all parts of the country.
With one exception, the surviving mem-
bers of General Wheeler's family were
in attendance, the honored guests of
the occasion.
The speakers included representatives
of three great veteran organizations of
the country. In the absence of Gen.
Stephen D. Lee, commander of the
United Confederate veterans, on ac-
count of ill health, Gen. Clement A.
Evans the ranking surviving Confeder-
ate officer, delivered an address. James
Tanner, commander-in-chief of the
Grand Army of the Republic, repre-
sented that organization. Major Chas.
It. Miller, of Cleveland, Ohio, spoke on
the Spanish war veterans, and Former
Congressman John W. Maddox, a vet-
eran of Wheeler's Confederate cavalry,
spoke for that organization. Governor
Joseph M. Terrell, of Georgia, presided
at the exercises and introduced the
speakers.
Preceding the formal addresses in the
opera house, there was a parade of the
Seventeenth United States Infantry,
the Fifth Georgis regiment, and a large
number of Confederate and G. A.R.
camps.
THE BLUE AND GRAY.
Following the Wheeler memorial on
Tuesday, the annual gathering of the
Blue and the Grey was held on Wednes-
dag and Thursday. The program pro-
vided for two sessions each day, and a
business meeting and banquet on Thurs-
day evening. General Julian S. Carr,
of Durham, N. C, presided and deliv-
ered an address. The program of the
various sessions included addresses by
representatives of the North and South
from eighteen different states and the
District of Columbia. Among the prom-
inent speakers present were Right Rev.
Thomas F. Gai lr, Episcopal Bishop of
Tennessee; Right Rev. Samuel Fallows,
Chicago, Bishop of the Reformed Epis-
copal Church; Jen. W. D. Cameron,
Mississippi; Major Delmar R. Lowell,
Connecticut, and Col. R. M. Green,
California.
THAT TWO FLAGS INCIDENT.
Richmond, Va., March 25th.--With
reference to criticism of his recent re-
mark in a public speech here that he
"recognized but two flags, the flag of
Virginia and the battle flag of the Con-
federacy, "Mayor McCarthy has given
to the press a statement which is in
part as follows :
"I have been the victim of numerous
postal cards and letters and newspaper
clippings since I dropped a passing re-
mark about flags in the midst of a
speech which would make a column or
two."
The Mayor here criticized the steno-
graphic report of His speech and con-
tinued :
"The assocwition which I addressed
was the Southern Ice Exchange. Ev-
rybodxxy talked about the desirability of
building up the industries, the manu-
factures, the enterprise and the busi-
ness of the South and Virginia, and
probably what I meant by saying: "I
recognize but two flags" was one way
of saying that my interest and my de-
votion, and hopes were indissolubly as-
sociated with my State and the South.
"I had the honor of making the ac-
quaintance of the star spangled banner
before many of my critics were old
enough to recognize it if they met it in
the street, and I would like to relieve
these anxious people of any unnecessa-
ry labor by informing them that I am
not in ned of any missionary work
whatever I had the pleasure a few
monthsim ago of giving an order for tit-
teen thousand star spanked banners and
further, the pleasure of suggesting that
these tle put in the hands of twelve
thiu.saidl school children of Richmond
that they might greet the I'resident
with the rustle and color and sentiment
of countless waving emblems of the
greatness and beneficence of our coun-
try. I freely entertwine in my office
the star spangled larner and the battle
flag of the C()nfederncy and thus ac-
knownilge my affect'onate devotion to
one and my respect and regard for the
other. 1 have no douht that I would tw
more prompt to meet a foreign fee with
the star spangled banner than many of
these anxious idiots who are tearing
their hair over a passing remark."

An Absolute Waste.
Little does the public realize the enor-
mous amount of money it will take to
drain the Everglades, as Goverrnpr Brow-
ard proposes. A Iready they have spent
on the scheme over $50,000, and this is
for dredge boats, one of the preliminary
steps only. The total amount will run
into the hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars, even a million or more, some say.
If there was any reasonable certainty
as to this helping the State, then all
right and good, let the work go ahead;
but a large number of the best inform-
ed and leading citizens of the State (and
we say they are not bought up, as
Broward accuses practically everybody
of being if they differ with him,) firmly
and honestly believe the tremendous ex-
penditure this scheme will require will
be of no benefit, but an absolute waste
to the State. In the first place, there
is no need for more agricultural lands;
the State and its citizens have millions
of acres of fertile and tillable lands that
are undeveloped and uncultivated, that
can be purchased at reasonable prices.
Even in Polk county we have thousands
of acres of rich, productive lands, lying
wild and open; these we would like to i
see improved and utilized, before our
money, because we own a considerable
>. chunk of the money Broward proposes
spending, is spent in developing a sec-
tion which if it turns out as the gover-
nor thinks, will come in competition
with this section and take farmers from t
our county instead of adding to the num-
ber now here. Why not build up the
sections that are already partially de-
Sveog instead of bringing competition
mthe and providing a means of
dev~p Mar1ufturing centers? We
do not few alarmed, however, along
this line because in our opinion tre
whole scheme will neveramount to any-
thing, but prove a big injury to the
State in the way of large expenditures
of money that shall never be derived
back out of the Everglades, as the drain- s
age most likely will never be perfect;
if it is, then the lands will never be fer- r
tile as a whole and suitable for cultiva- r
tion. Even if suitable, the State will S
be a quarter of a century or more get- S
ting back the tremendous amount the F
project will cost In a business man d
such a project would be termed a "wild-
cat scheme," with absolutely no cer-
tainty to it, except the spending, possi-
bly, of a million dollars of the people's s
money. We believe the drainage of r
the Everglades should be dropped and t
the time and moiey spent elsewhere. a
Polk county is entitled to about $18;000 c
of this money, and we would rather n
spend it on our roads than to see it, as
we truly and sincerely believe, was
ted on the drainage of the Everglades g

for the past two years have appea

to $2.00, so the value of the gift whe
counted in many thousands can be we
appreciated.
The romance which paved the wa
for the Journal's enterprise looms u
one of the most unique of the decade
Some time ago Collier's publication ask
ed Gibson for the exclusive use of hi
sketches, which from time to time ha
appeared in the most celebrated maga
zines in the country. The artist state
that no one publication could nearly af
ford to pay for any exclusive use, bu
Collier's immediately offered him $100
000 for 100 of his drawings. This offe
was accepted by Mr. Gibson, and fron
that date until 1906 dawned upon th
calendar these great sketches appeared
weekly in Collier's journal, the most at
tractive offering ever furnished by an,
publication in all history. Having corn
pleted his contract for the set, however
Gibson informed his publishers that h4
was out for fame and not for glory
He announced that he had finished wit)

had no further need for an addition t(
his income, he would go abroad anc

and so with these sketches his labor
along the lines that made him famous
reached an end.
His last sketches stand out as hit
greatest, the work of a master crafts.
man. They are not only celebrated
works of art, but each carries a story
of human interest and a character point
that will be well appreciated by all.
The Journal's successful effort in ac-
quiring such rare treasures for its
countless subscribers stands out as one
of the boldest strokes in the history of
the Southern journalistic field, and one
that is sure to add great popularity to
the already high esteem in which the
paper is held. These sketches will all
be of original size and printed on the
finest paper obtainable. Each can be
saved and used in enlarging home art
galleries. The same set if purchased
otherwise would cost something about
$15,000, while coming as they will there
will be no extra money expense for
those who take them in connection with

month, until the result of a decision
ending in Missouri affecting the same
ine of inquiry had been announced,
sent word on the 22nd to Henry Wool-
man, New York representative of the
state of Missouri, that he would inter-
rose no further objections to answering
r Hadley's interrogations
Attorney-General Hadley is accompa-
ied by Rus C. Lake, assistant attorney
general. The hearing was set for the
3rd, but by consent was not reached
until the 21th. The object of Mr. Had-
ey was to force the Standard officials
o admit control of the Waters Pierce
)il company.
Mr. Hadley sad that suponeas had
een served on HI. II. Roter., H M.
ileford, W I) Rockefeller, Wade
ampton and John A Archbold. iHe
l.so said that no service had been se-
ured on John 1) Rockefeller.
Mr. Hladley's attention being called
othe fact of the arrival of a boy baby
tlhe home of John I). Rockefeller,
r., and the reported dispositionofJohn
. Rockefeller, Sr. to visit the city to
ee his new grandson, he said:
"If John D. Rockefeller were to say
hat he desised to visit the home of his
on to pay his respects to the new baby
nd were to ask immunity from the
recess for that purpose, I should be


disposed to consider seriously the mat-
er of waiving my rights. I know
omethirg of the sentiments that are
prominent at such a time and believe I
would be disposed to grant the immuni-
y in question.

r Water will not run down hill, or there

e Why? For exactly the reason that dig-
ging must continue to the end of the

In all that territory aquatic plants
s grow with phenomenal rapidity and ex-
s traordinary abundance. Twice a year
tons upon tons of this harvest float with
B the current, catch on the sandbars, pile
up against the banks, and impede the
flow. Because of them water doesn't
run down hill in the Everglades but a
little while at a time-because of them
the canals must be dredged out once or
twice a year. To the expense of dig-
ging must be added the expense of eter-
nal renewals. Diaston dug his ditches.
beginning in Lake Okeechobee, and
when he reached tide water his dredges
couldn't turn around and go back!
Now all experience shows the real
difficulty along these water courses is
exactly that which has successfully de-
fied the science and purse of the Amer-
ican government in the St. Johns and in
Louisiana-nature is building up lands
with those plants, amd conditions which
stop the growth can alone defeat her
plans. How many dredges would it
take to keep five hundred miles of these
water courses free from the aquatic
plants of that section? How many
men? How many dollars per annum
after the ditches have been dug? This
growth was the worst problem that
confronted Disston- it proved too diffi-
cult for him.
Meantime, since we have known that
section water has refus:'d to run down
hill, and those who so confidently declare
that a lake twenty feet higher than tide
water is in need of drainage must admit
the fact. Times-Union.

An Absolute Waste.
Little does the public realize the enor-
mous amount of money it will take to
drain the Everglades, as Governor Brow-
ard proposes. AIready they have spent
on the scheme over $50,000, and this is
for dredge boats, one of the preliminary
steps only. The total amount will run
into the hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars, even a million or more, some say.
If there was any reasonable etetainty
as to this helping the State, then all
right and good, let the work go ahead;
but a large number of the best inform-
ed and leading citizens of the State (and
we say they are not bought up, as
Broward accuses practically everybody
of being if they differ with him,) firmly
and honestly believe the tremendous ex-
penditure this scheme will require will
be of no benefit, but an absolute waste
to the State. In the first place, there
is no need for more agricultural lands;
the State and its citizens have millions
of acres of fertile and tillable lands that
are undeveloped and uncultivated, that
can be purchased at reasonable prices.
Even in Polk county we have thousands
of acres of rich, productive lands, lying
wild and open; these we would like to
see improved and utilized, before our
money, because we own a considerable
. chunk of the money Broward proposes
spending, is spent in developing a sec-
tion which if it turns out as the gover-
nor thinks, will come in competition
with this section and take farmers from
our county instead of adding to the num-
ber now here. Why not build up the
section' that are already partially de-
ve lo instead of bringing competition
t m and providing a means of
dewv plIM Ivulturing centers? We
do not feel alarmed, however, along
this iUne because in our opinion tree
whole scheme will never amount to any-
thing, but prove a big injury to the
State in the way of large expenditures
of money that shall never be derived
back out of the Everglades, as the drain-
age most likely will never be perfect;
if it is, then the lands will never be fer-
tile as a whole and suitable for cultiva-
tion. Even if suitable, the State will
be a quarter of a century or more get-
ting back the tremendous amount the
project will cost In a business man
such a project would be termed a "wild-
cat scheme," with absolutely no cer-
tainty to it, except the spending, possi-
bly, of a million dollars of the people's
money. We believe the drainage of
the Everglades should be dropped and
the time and moiey spent elsewhere.
Polk county is entitled to about $18;000
of this money, and we would rather
spend it on our roads than to see it, as
we truly and sincerely believe, was
ted on the drainage of the Everglades

The Breath of Life.
It is a significant fact that the strong-
est animal of its size, the gorilla has
the I rgest lungs Powerful lungs
mean powerful creatures. How to
keep the breathing organs right
should be man's chiefest study. Like
thousands of others, Mrs. Ora A. l
Stephens, of Port Williams, O., has
'learned how to do this. She writes:
"Three bottles of Dr. King's New Dis-
covery stopped my cough of two years
and cured me of what my friends
thought consumption. Oh, it is grand

"Whom the gods would destroy they ,
first make mad But then, what could J
be the object of the State press in de-
stroying Governor Broward? If he
keeps up his groundless insinuations the
blow will be self-inflicted soon enough. t
.... It is said that the Everglades will s
be thrust in the campaign this year and a

In Collier's great publication. Purchase
ed at any store, they bring from $1 2
to $2.00, so the value of the gift whei
counted in many thousands can be wel
appreciated.
The romance which paved the wa3
for the Journal's enterprise looms ua
one of the most unique of the decade
Some time agoCollier's publication ask
ed Gibson for the exclusive use of hi
sketches which from time to time hat
appeared in the most celebrated maga
zines in the country. The artist atated
that no one publication could nearly at
ford to pay for any exclusive use, bu
Collier's immediately offered him $100
000 for 100 of his drawings. This offer
was accepted by Mr. Gibson, and front
that date until 1906 dawned upon the
calendar these great sketches appeared
weekly in Collier's journal, the most at
tractive offering ever furnished by any
publication in all history. Having com
pleted his contract for the set, however
Gibson informed his publishers that he
was out for fame and not for glory.
He announced that he had finished with
that form of art work, and that as he
had no further need for an addition to
his income, he would go abroad and
work under the most famous masters of
art. His ambition was to be a painter
and so with these sketches his labors
along the lines that made him famous
reached an end.
His last sketches stand out as his
greatest, the work of a master crafts-
man. They are not only celebrated
works of art, but each carries a story
of human interest and a character point
that will be well appreciated by all.
The Journal's successful effort in ac-
quiring such rare treasures for its
countless subscribers stands out as one
of the boldest strokes in the history of
the Southern journalistic field, and one
that is sure to add great popularity to
the already high esteem in which the
paper is held. These sketches will all
be of original size and printed on the
finest paper obtainable. Each can be
saved and used in enlarging home art
galleries. The same set if purchased
otherwise would oest something about
$15 000, while coming as they will there
will be no extra money expense for
those who take them in connection with
the Journal.

A New York dispatch of the 23rd
says: H. H. Rogers, who denied the
rig ht of Mr. Hadley to force him to tes-
tily in the suit of the State of Missouri
against the Standard Oil and allied
companies at the hearings here last
month, until the result of a decision
pending in Missouri affecting the same
line of inquiry had been announced,
sent word on the 22nd to Henry Wool-
man, New York representative of the
state of Missouri that he would inter-
pose no further objections to answering
Mr. Hadley's interrogations
Attorney-General Hadley is accompa-


until the 24th. The object of Mr. Had-
ley was to force the Standard officials
to admit control of the Waters Pierce
)il company.
Mr. Hadley sa d that suponeas had
been served on H. Hi. Rosters, H M.
Tileford, W DS Rockefeller, Wade
eHampton and John A. Archbold. He
tlso said that no service had been se-
'ured on John D Rockefeller.

.o the fact of the arrival of a boy baby
it the home of John D. Rockefeller,
Jr.. and the reported disposition of John
D. Rockefeller. Sr. to visit the city to
ee his new randson, he said:
"If John D. Rockefeller were to say
that he devised to visit the home of his
ion to pay his respects to the new baby
nd were to ask immunity from the
process for that purpose, I should be
disposed to consider seriously the mat-
er of waiving my rights. I know

- Perhaps nothing but experience will

- Everglades controversy, but there is at
t least one difference that reason and ex-
, perience should settle. The followers
r of the Governor talk of their canals
n and then ask with haughty heads and
e expended chests, "Won't water run
d down hill?" Not in the Everglades for
- long. Why? That has long been one
V of the mysteries of that most mysteri-
- ous region but it need not be so forever.
r Water will not run down hill, or there
e would be no need to dig those ditches -
Okeechobee is twenty feet above the
ocean, and still the water won't run.
e Why? For exactly the reason that dig-
) going must continue to the end of the
I chapter-the canals will never be fin-
ished.
In all that territory aquatic plants
* grow with phenomenal rapidity and ex-
traordinary abundance. Twice a year
tons upon tons of this harvest float with
the current, catch on the sandbars, pile
up against the banks, and impede the
flow. Because of them water doesn't
run down hill in the Everglades but a
little while at a time-because of them
the canals must be dredged out once or
twice a year. To the expense of dig-
ging must be added the expense of eter-
nal renewals. Disston dug his ditches,
beginning in Lake Okeechobee, and
when he reached tide water his dredges
couldn't turn around and go back!
Now all experience shows the real
difficulty along these water courses is
exactly that which has successfully de-
fled the science and purse of the Amer-
ican government in the St. Johns and in
Louis:ana-nature is building up lands
with those plants, rnd conditions which
stop the growth can alone defeat her
plans. How many dredges would it
take to keep five hundred miles of these
water courses free from the aquatic
plants of that section? How many
men? How many dollars per annum
after the ditches have been dug? This
growth was the worst problem that
confronted Disston- it proved too diffi-
cult for him.
Meantime, since we have known that
section water has refusc-d to run down
hill, and those who so confidently declare
that a lake twenty feet higher than tide
water is in need of drainage must admit
the fact.--Times-Union.

What the editor of this paper said in
reply to Mr. Burr's challenge to meet
him in joint debate is emphasized by
Governor Ilroward's speech in Jackson-
ville. Both of the daily papers there
reported what the governor is said to
have said and the reporters of both the
papers agreed in their reports of his
speech. The governor now denies the
published report of these newspapers
and seeks cold type for a vindication of
hit utterances. This is what he should
have done at first. When a man puts
his thoughts in print there can be no
misunderstandings and no denials. Mr
Burr can make any statement he wishes
on the stump and when he is confronted
with the same in print, can easily claim
I that he was misquoted. The newspa-.
per is the field for the settlement, and
rightful settlement, of all controverted
subjects. -()cala Banner
