btuf M v lor Goveamor Brow-
rd'a sl hM lanI y hoasse they
believed I be, et=don thet -
ue rad siMd be fr an opportunity
todeiMote itooprtetabillty. Sen-
ator J. H. Hemphia, who epraisenta
DeSoet and Manatee counties, was one
who took this view of the question, and
in the last issue of the Bradentown
Herald be refers to the subject as fol-
lows:
"The Herald in the campaign of 1904,
as is well known, did not support Gov.
ernor Broward, but was for h. W. Da-
vis, a man who though beaten at last,
was known to the Herald as a safe and
brainy man to whose care the beat in-
terest of Florida might be safely en-
trusted.
"But when Governor Broward was
elected and inaugurated, we, as loyal
Demoerats, yielded to him our most cor-
dial support. We even went so far as
to give our sanction to his drainage
scheme. And this we did not withdraw
itil after the matter had gotten be-
fore the United States court and that
tribunal had sustained to a material ex-
tent the contention of those who had
opposed it from the start. Then we
*ere forced to look into the matter
more closely in order to express an in-
telligent opinion to those who looked to
us for information as to the real statue
of the case.
"We early learned that the Governor
was making the mistake of setting up
his opinions, supported by his interested
counsellors, against that of the courts.
Still adhering to what we conceived to
be our duty, we mildly counselled cau-
tion and the suspension of all work on
the scheme until the suits already in
court could be brought to an issue and
trial, and the merits determined, so
that the Governor could know just what
his powers were before jeopardizing the
State's money and credit.
"It seems that the Governor could
not, or would not, take the safe, if not
the only sensible course, but with his
peculiar filibustering bent, decided to
proceed with this gigantic undertaking
without any regard for the courts at
all.
"This aroused the whole State to a
more critical investigation as to what
was going on, and at last resulted in
the campaign that is now distracting
the State. And unfortunately for Gov-
ernor Broward, the opinion is being
formed that there is a syndicate of land
sharks formed, who, 'by the ways that
are dark and tricks that are vain.' have
pushed the Governor into methods that
are, to say the least, very peculiar.
After passing the drainage bill, it was
so apparent ly unconstitutional that they
framed a constitutional amendment,
which it is hoped can hbe forced down
the people's throats, to make a law en-
acted two years before a valid law iDo
the lawyers in the regislatire, or the1
members generally, know the meaning
P of retroactive action? Have they ever
heYd of any State that has passed n
code of void laws and then made them
valid by making amendments to their
con .itution? Have they ever learned
the legal interpretation of void and void-
able? If there is any of them that
think they have, It certainly is here in
the State of Florida. For nowhere else
is such a thing possible. Even our
young school boys know the distinction
between constitutional powers and leg-
islative powers, even if some old fly-
blown jurist has said that 'the constitu-
tion provides so and so.'
"But there has been a horde of use-
less officesand officers, with fat salaries
annexed, that have influence, fixed up
to bleed the State. We can't believe
that Governor Broward has willingly
walked into the trap thus set for his
unwary feet. But, Iw that as it may,
the masse. are looking to the incoming
V. Legislature to loohk into this unholy al--
liance who now, though nesting in Jack-
sonville, have their hadns upon the Gov-
ernor, and to snatch him nas a brand
from the burning, and put a brake on
their schemes until the question can
again be sent before the people."

What 1 M"aa Ut S heM L"vw
T ,4ty. n V an Lgeadr.
Wtht ibeemn amabrasee from Mr.
John D. Rockefeller' own physician
Paud Aen, M. D., that Mr tekefollei
has every prospect of lving to be 100
an old, a most inteeting new qua-
ha arisen as to the pba himn-
e sity of the. Rocket r bilonas
dt three years from now.
.Tfty-three years from now-or, to
be exact on July 8, 1988-Mr. Rocke-
feller will celebrate the one-hundredth
anniversary of hi birthday; provided,
of comsme that he lives to fulfill his
phyians prediction.
AdI thirty-three years from now, it
his dUions continue to increase at the
prmheet rate, Mr. Rockefeller, at the
Sao of 100 years, will be worth $25,-
7U.000,000--almost three times as much
gold and silver as there is in circula-
tion, in banks and in all the treasure
house and mints on earth today.
It is impossible for the human mind
to comprehend the vastness of such a
sum of money as $25,732,000,000. But
if anybody wanted to count it, all in
one-dollar hills, counting steadily at the
rate of $3 a second, day and night, with-
out stopping for a moment until the
task was ended, it would take two hun-
dred and ninety-five years, five months.
two weeks, sixteen hours and thirty-
five minutes and thirty-three seconds
to complete the work.
HIS PRESENT WEAI.TH.
Nobody knows just how much Mr.
Rockefeller is worth at the present
time. It is doubtful whether he himself
could give an estimate that was not a
million or two off the mark. Careful
investigators have computed his wealth
at 4615,0( .000,0 within the past few
weeks, and this figure is believed to be
as accurate as it possibly can be.
In 1906 Mr. Rockefeller was worth
$5b0,000,0K), showing a gain for the
present year of $65,000,000. In 1900
he had only $400,000,000, and the year
before that he was poorer still, $260,-
000,)00 representing his total wealth.
In 1885 he had $100,000,000, in 1875
$5 000,000, in 1865 $5,000, and 1855 not a
solitary penny. During the past fifty-
one years his fortune has increased
from nothing at all to $615,000,000.
Mr. Rockefeller is now 66 years old.
On the 8th of next month he will cele-
brate the 67th anniversary of his birth-
day. The details of his early struggles,
his thriftiness and amazing business
aptitude are too well known to require
repetition here. Besides, they belong
to the past and have nothing to do with
Mr. Rockefeller's future and the posmi-
ble extent of his wealth by the time he
reaches the age of 100 years
It has bwen repeatedly declared that
Mr. Rockefeller is already a billionaire,
this estimate of his fortune being based
on the value of his holdings in Standard
Oil and other interests. As a rule
these estimates may often he regarded
with security as fictitious, being founded
more on inflated than actual values.
So for that reason it is more reasonable
to take the most conservative estimate
of Mr. Rockefeller's fortune, which
places his present wealth at $615,000,(00).
THE NATURAL GROWTH.
Mr Rockefeller has over T3 years to
live before he reaches his one hundredth
birthday. During that time it is reason-
able to suppose that his millions will be
entitled to a natural growth, just the
same as every other person's money
grows when it is judiciously invested
and carefully guarded.
From 100, to 1,NW) the natural growth
of his millions added $iT $(,(i),() to the
principal. Year after year at this rate
the natural growth should become grad-
ually larer and larger, until, when Mr.
Rockefeller is 99 years old the mere in-
terest on his money should be $2,7i57,.(7X
in one year- over four times as much
an he is worth at the present time.
In 1904, when Mr. Rockefeller did not
have very much more than half a billion
dollars to his name, his income was two
dollars and a few cents over every
second of the day. The average man
earning $2 a (lay can appreciate the
difference there in between $2 a day for
six days a week and $2 a second for
seven days a week
If in 19.'9 Mr. Rockefeller's fortune
reached $25,7B2,.00,IM1 and he has
reached his one hundredth birthday an-
niversary he will be drawing interest at
the rpate of $9,496.56 a second. This is
more than a great many men succeed in
earning ins lifetime. Jacksonville Mo-,

Thin m i uary PreJsetmeaL
Editor Tree Democrat:
Seuh a comment rarely comes to the
notlee of the courts of Florida as the
recent report of the grand jury at Tal-
ihamese Surely it stands unprece-
dentead ud excelled in paradoxical
staten and ilical and contradie-
tory eochllom We would recoi.tnind
a course Ito lic to the gentlemen com-
Ima maid jury before they again at-
ept, what appears to be, a covert
defamee of aloons and a disparagement
of prohibitiUon. Let s note a few items
in thi report and see how it looks.
"There seems to be no difficulty for
any one wishing to purchase liquor in
finding some one willing to sell it."
Before taking up the statement which
directly contradicts the foregoing, we
wish to may, parenthetically, that any
one wishing to gamble has no difficulty
in finding some one to gamble with
him. And knowing this evil is being
carried on in many places, would it not
be well to open up public licensed gam-
bling houses and encourage it all we
can? A man bent on any form of evil
has no difficulty in finding an accessory;
therefore should not all these evils be
properly looked after by the good peo-
ple, opened up to the public in a respect-
able way and made more easy to perpe-
trate? Were the worthy men of the
grand jury to apply this argument con-
sistently to every form of evil, nothing
would more quickly hurl the human
race into ruin and perdition. But we
are thankful to say they have made the
argument void even in in this connection,
as will be noted in the following:
"O0ar sheriff and his deputies have
been zealous in searching out the of-
fenders." If this statement is true,
the preceding one is false. Either the
sheriff and his deputies have failed to
do their sworn duty, or there in some
difficulty for one wishing to purchase
liquor in finding some one to sell it.
But as though they would defend the
sheriff and his deputies (and why de-
fend them if they have zealously per-
formed their duty?) the report says:
"But he cannot arrest without sufficient
and direct evidence of an actual sale."
Why do not these men, who seem to
know so much about "the ease with
which liquor can be obtained," furnish
the evidence? If members of the grand
jury know there "is no difficulty and
that "it is easy to obtain liquor," why
shouldn't other people know it, and if
other people have the evidence, why
should not the sh'riff have it? Aside
from the weakness of this argument,
the grand jury have shown themselves
ignorant of the law. For their benefit
we will quote acts of 1901,pages 61 and
62: "It shall be the duty of all sheriff,
deputy sheriffs, constables, and police
officers in their respective jurisdictions,
and they are hereby authorized amnd
empowered to enter any building, booth,
tent or other place or part thereof with
or without warrant, in which they have
good cause to suspect that liquors are
kept for sale contrary to law, and to
seize the same and arrest the parties so
engaged in such sales, nd if liquors are
found in such quantities as to confirm
the belief of illegal sales, the same
shall be prima facie evidence of selling
liquor contrary to law." There you
have the law, and it doEs not nsy that
the sheriff shall have "direct evidence
of an actual sale." Which shall we be-
lieve, the law or the grand jury?
The grand jury would fain defend the
officers, but if liquors are sold in such
quantities as they assert, they have
woefully made ground for the Iwlief
that the officers are in collusion with
the blind tigers, which is a very unfor-
tunate conclusion.
Again, this very remarkable present-
ment says that "the law as now en-
forced and it must be enforced strange
enforcement of law when there is no
difficulty at all in obtaining an article
which the law plainly says MURT NoT HE
soi.)j. may well lead to much false
swearing and bribery." Here we have
the argument that if a man is guilty of
an evil and swears falsely concerning
it, the REMEiDY for said evil is to license
it and make the law such that the man
may engage in it to a limitlesn extent,
carry it on publlicly and under the pro-
teetion of the law.! For if not, the man
MIKHT lie about it, and you know it's
wrong for a man to lie! (can it be be-
lieved for one moment, by intelligent
people, that false swearing and bribery
is a product of prohibitionm? There is
scarcely a term of court hele in any
county of the State at which false
swearing and blrilbery are not charged.
in cases too that do not involve prohibi-
tion.
"The ease with which liquor can be
obtained points to a great danger that
threatens (our Ixboys." Shades of the
aloon, protect us!
In the year lNu, in our capital city,
a grand jury, sMppoAed to be compostd
of reputable citizens, indirectly states
to his honor. Judge Malonme, that the
barroom is n Ietter protection to our
boys than prohiliitiont Indirectly, they
cry: "Give us the saloon, where our
boys may drink undisturbed! Give us a
public, licens d hell up on the front
street, from which the tormenting


breakers of aw and doers of evil, big
and little, rich and poor, are being
marched up to the toe line, and "sight
down the finger points of mighty jus-
tice," they behold the handwriting upon
the wall, and the fortresses of these
latter-pay Helshazsars are crumbling
like pillars of ashes. The proceeion of
those who are carrying on this good
work is going steadily on, growing as it
goes. and the people everywhere, -of
every religious faith and every political
belief, in every walk of life, are join-
ing hands and hearts in the crusade be-
ing made against vice throughout the
whole country. In Kentucky Governor
Beckham is receiving the plaudits of
the people because of his efforts to
"clean up" louisville. Gov. Folk, of
Missouri. has knocked the black out In
that State, and Governor Handley has

Goed Reads.
At the good roads convention in Tal-
lahassee a deeper interest was Inspired
and a broader conception was gained of
the question of improved highways for
Florida.
In a State like ours all sorts and con-
ditions of men and women are more or
less dependent upon the best means of
communication and transportation.
Good road building is a public matter,
and a greater necessity than some real-
ize. We are far behind in the construc-
tion and maintenance of good roads
which is a reflection on our energy.
The difference between good roads
and bad mads is the difference between
profit and loss. Good roads have a
money value far beyond our conception.
Good roads mean prosperous farmers'
bad roads mean abandoned farms and
sparsely settled country districts.
Everyone should have an abiding in-
terest in the all-absorbing question of
better highways. It means progress
and prosperity, a benefit to the people
who live in the cities and an advantage
to the people who live in the country,
and it will help every section in our vast
domain.
Good roads, like good streets, make
habitation along them most desirable;
they enhance the value of farm lands,
facilitate transportation, and add untokid
wealth to the producers and consumers
of the country; they are the milestones
marking the march of civilization; they
economize time, labor and money; they
save wear and tear and worry and
waste; they beautify the country, bring
it in touch with the city, and aid the
social and religious and educational and
industrial advancement of the people;
they make better homes and happier
hearthsidet; they are the avenues of
trade, the highways of commerce, the
mail routes of information, and the
agencies of speedy communication; they
mean the economical transportation of
marketable products the maximum
burden at the minimum cost; they are
the ligaments that bind the country to-
gether in thrift and industry and intel-
ligence and patriotism; they promote
social intercourse, prevent intellectual
stagnation, and increase the happiness
and prosperity of our producing mass;
they contribute to the glory of the coun-
try, give employment to our idle work-
men, distribute the necessities of life
the products of the fields and the for-
ests and the factories encourage en-
ergy and husbandry, inculcate love for
our scenic grandeur, and make mankind
better and greater and gander.
(,ood roads have made the glory of
the nations of the past, and good roads
will add to our greater glory and make
us all that we hope to be. the most be-
neficent power that ever blessed an ad-
vancing and progreming humanity. -

How to Breal Up a Cold.
It may be a surprise to many to learn
that a severe cold can be completely
broken up in one or two days time.
The first symptoms of a cold are a dry,
loud cough, a profuse watery discharge
from the nose, and a thin, white coating
on the tongue. When Chamberlain'
Cough Remedy is taken every hour on
the first appearance of these symptoms,
it counteracts the effect of the cold and
restores the symptom to a healthy con-
dlition within a day or two. For sale by
all druggists *

Prices For Buttersaes.
Butterfly collectors are seldom able
to estimate with any confidence the
value of their collections, since the
prices for specimen so constantly va-
ry. A case In point In that of the blue
butterfly of Brazil, specimens of which
were originally sold for from $50 to
$75. Afterward some collectors who
supplied the London market ran Into a
perfect swarm of these butterflies and
shipped to England such quantities
that better specimens than the original
Insects sold for $1 each. It not infre-
quPa.tly happens that two or three
specimens of a certain family are dis.-
covered by collectors, who, encouraged
by the high price received for their
fnda, are tempted, to prosecute their
search for this particular variety with-
out result for spverni veyoun. Snddnuly

tabed varettes of the cabinet beeoas

Spider have been observed in Ma-
dras which live In a sponge-like neat of
branching network, penetrated Inter-
nally by canals of communication and
furnished with a number of external
apertures. The nests, which may be at-
tached either to the tips of branches or
to leaves of the prickly pear, are ashy
gray in color and constructed of leaves,
with an external covering of the usual
sticky threads. The spiders are similar
In color to their nests. Their Incon-
spcluous, sheet-like webe radiate In all
directions, and as many as fire or six
nests, connected by Intermediate webs,
may Ie found on a single plant. "The
connecting webs., which are very
strong, often form tubular bridges be-
tween the nests. From forty to a hun-
ilreil splilerm may be found In a single

How the Bulldoe Was Evolved.
In the north hall of the British Nat-
ural History museum skulls of domes-
ticated dogs are arranged which Illus-
trate the evolution of the modern bull-
dog from a breed which, according to
old picture., was more of the mastiff
type. Hull butting was a common sport
in the thirteenth century, and there
is a later record which draws a dis-
tinction between bulldogs and mastiffs.
Low, in his "Domesticated Animals of
the British Islands," points out that it
is essential that a dog which makes a
frontal attack on a bull should be both
underhung and short legged, that It
may get a firm grip of its antagonist
and avoid its horns. We may therefore
be sure that, as the bulldog was gradu.
ally evolved from the mastiff, these
points were held to be of prime Im-
