fully as to this claim. All the history)
connected with it is accessible anc

duty and mission of newspapers to up-

There's nothing scary about Hunt
Harris. When the Fort Myers Breeze
asked if he would seek the presidency
of the Senate, he wired back "Sure,
Mike," or words to that effect, and he
covers the ground he stands on. When
told that if he became a candidate for
Senator all the influence of the admin-
stration would be exerted to defeat
him, he promptly rolled up his sleeves
and cried "Let's test that influence "
And when informed that a big fight
would be made on his "aspiration to
he presidency, he drove his spade a lit-
tle deeper and wrote a friend, "Let's
get at the root of this matter." Let's
see; a President of the United States
nay enjoy the luxury of an executive
who runs the Senate, and there may be
a Speaker who runs the House. and
here may be combination of dollars and
politics that makes Presidents and
Speakers but we believe Florida is still
free and has a Senate and a House en-
irely competent to get along without
executive bossing. If not in the im-

Mr. Lamar's vanity may now be sat-

some things in connection with the
Walter Taylor case will never be for-

wrong in attacking him in his office.
The hand William Sherman Jennings
took in the matter, followed by one
Ben Liddon's brow-beating and insult-
ing of Tallahassee ladies, for a fee, and
later, the influence that was brought
on Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, and
those of his board who stood with him,
all went to heap political persecution
upon the accused, and that all put to-
gether in a nutshell, was as bad a
crime, and as enormous offense as was
the one Taylor committed, the differ-
ence being only that Taylor was pun-
ishod and made to suffer, while those

out justice, lent their official power to

Umatilla enough votes were changed in
these two precinets to defeat Arams
by the narrow margin of 66 votes.
While Mr. Withers is a good citisen,
and perhaps will do no harm in the San-
te th best friend he has in the county
will not contend that he is the man for
the place. The combined strength of
Broward, Jennings, Luning and McLin
was barely sufficient in Ltesburg and
Umatilla to turn thirty or forty votes
against Abrams and bring about the
election of Withers. The question with
them and those they could control was
not the fitness and capacity of Withers
for the place, but to sustain the admin-
istration; and, while the rest of the
Stute has turned the administration
down most emphatically, Lake county
has stood by him. It may be that Lake
county is right and the balance of the
6tate wrong; time alone will demon-
t.rate who is right on the drainage
q testion. For our part, we bow down
to the verdict of the people of Lake
county, and Mr. Withers is now our
candidate for the Senate, no matter
what outside influences brought about
his election.
Now, Mr. Abrams made a good mem-
ber of the House in former years, and
he says he is not done yet; may have
better luck next time.
The desperate straits of the Ever-
glades drainage schemers are here in
the above clipping shown. The Gov-

taxation, etc. In other words, to pin it

Walter Taylor, who assaulted Gen-
eral Lamar in the latter's office in Tal-
lahassee and was sentenced to five years
in the penitentiary, was on Monday
granted a conditional pardon. Charges
of fraud against Taylor in the primary
in which General Lamar was a candidate
for Congress, caused the assault. Tay-
lor had a wife and several small chil-
dren dependent upon him for support,
and just before he was sent to the peni-
tentiary over one hundred ladies ap-
pealed in person to the Pardoning Board
for mercy to the man, but the board
turned a deaf ear to their appeal.
General Lamar was then appeal to,
to ask for mercy, but he refused to do
so. If ever there was a case in which a
pardon should have been granted it was
that of Walter Taylor. --Gainesville Sun
