b ykIlier Last Tor.
The County Commissioners met in
regular session Tuesday, July 3d, in the
office of the County Clerk in the court
house.
There were present at the meeting,
E. C. Smith, chairman; John A. Andprs.
John C. Moore, W. D. Stoutamire and
W. A. Register.
The regular routine of business was
carried out as usual.
The resignation of Mr. E. T. Scrugge
as inspector of marks and brands at the
village of Chaires, was tendered to the
board in writing, and was accepted.
Mr. W 0. Ames, tax assessor, ap-
peared before the board and asked until
the next regular meeting of the board
to have the tax rolls completed. Same
was granted.
The appropriations for the fiscal year
beginning July 1st, 1906, were the same
as last year, and as follows:
General revenue ... 3 mills *
Fine and forfeiture. 11 mills
Roads and bridges 1I mill
County schools------..... 7 mills
A motion was made by W. A. Regis-
ter, seconded by J. C. Moore, and car-
ried, that index ng records of clerks, as
per petition filed, be given to P. V.
Lang at a monthly salary of $75.00.
In the matter of claim of W. N. Cog-
gins against Leon county for injury to
Loise, at Munson's Slough bridge, Mr.
W. A. Register was appointed as a com-
mittee of investigation. He made his
report, whereupon the board declined to
entertain the claim.
A roller top desk from the clerk's of-
fice was sold, on motion, to W. A. Reg-
ister for $16.00, that being the most
offered.
The letting of contract for building
the bridge across the Ocklocknee river
at Fairbanks ferry was deferred for
future action.
A Nista len idea.
The Tribune is in receipt of a letter
from Mr. J. Emmett Wolfe, private
secretary to Governor Broward, in
which he claims that the Tribum has
miastated the facts, in a speciait*em
Areadia, concerning the recent hanging
of Albert Simmons, the statement com-
plained of being as follows:
"The case of Simmons is notable as
the only one involving the death pen-
alty which the State Pardoning Board
has not interfered with in this State in
a term of years "
Mr. Wolfe submits a list of the legal
executions in this State in the past two
years, numbering 12 in all, and asserts
hat these facts show that the Tribune's
statement was entirely incorrect.
Mr. Wolfe evidently mistakes the
meaning of the word "interfered" as
used in the Tribute's Arcadia corre-
spondence. The Tribune's correspond-
'nt certainly did not mean to say that
Simmons was the only man who had
een hanged in Florida in a term of
years. By the word "interference as
used by him he evidently meant consid-
'red delayed, or held up by the State
Pardoning Board.
If the Tribune's information is cor-
rect. Simmons' case was not appealed
o the pardoning board at all. In this
particu ar it certainly was unique in
Florida criminal procedure.
Of the twelve cases of legal execu-
ion cited by Mr. Wolfe, the Tribune
notes only one, that of Simmons, in
vhich some effort was not made by
friends or attorneys of the condemned
nan to secure a commutation of sen-
ence from the pardoning board, there
s generally consideration by that board,
md this consideration involves delay,
nd frequently postponement, of the
execution.
In the caseof Edward Lamb, of Man-
tee county, cited by Mr. Wolfe, the
'ribune distinctly remembers that the
execution was held up a long time, pend-
ng consideration by the pardoning
board
The case of Isham Edwards was also,
f we mistake not, before the pardon-
ng Board sr a considerable period.
Perhaps Mr. Wolfe will claim that
he execution of Isaiah E. Cooper has
ot been "minterfered with" by the par-
oning board.
Appealsto the State Pardoning Board
early always mean a delay in the exe-
ution of the mandate of the law; not
frequently they mean cheating the
allows of a victim. So generally has
his idea become that the first recourse
f a condemned man's lawyers is an ap-
eal to the said board. And, because
his course was not adopted in the case
f Simmons, his caae became a curioe-
y and worthy of the special mention
whichh it received in the Tribune.-

for settlers had been broken up, and
the small amount of money received
therefore was lying in the Internal Im-

is claimed, was immediately after the
purchase sold for a much larger sum
than the State received. With the old
plan of exchanging land for the build-

so unfortunately disposed of. would
have been the means of building rail-
roads for the State at points where
they are very much needed
That policy apparently is to be fol- 10

A good story is current of a joke
Splayed by a job printer, perhaps unwit-
tingly, Fred. L. Robertson, of "Tllahas-
see, Assistant Adjutant General of the
U. C. V., with the rank Brigadier Gen-
eral. His cards as printed, it is said,
made him Assistant Adjutant General
of the U. 1). C. an organization which
does not need generals of any descrip-
tion, though it is whispered that some
of the member have shown a rare ca-
pacity in commanding such ollficers
"mere men" and always to the Ienefit
of the latter, it may be added Times-
Union.
The discovery of a process by which
paper of the strongest texture and
softest finish and in all grades can I w
made from the fiber of the cotton stalk
will add greatly to thet value of the cot-
ton crop to the South. The spruce pine
from the pulp of which paper is mostly
made today will soon run out. When
that article can be made fnii reottnl
stalks it will cheapen it in price and
may give some protection from the pa-
per trust. It looks as though cotton
may yet bie almost as valuable for what
used )to be thrown away as it is for the
lint. Perhaps the paper mills of the
future will he located in the South.

The Iternal Improvement Act of
SM dirt the Trutees ofthe I. 1.
Fumd what to do with moneys arising
farom the sale of lands, commanding
t hen to "invest the surplus moneys
S IartIa from time to time in stocks of
the United States, stocks of the several
StaMs, or the Internal Improvement
bonds issued under the provisions of
law, and drawing not less than six per
ScenMt iannul ateawrt." The Inevitable
Inference ia that the right of final die-
posItion of such Invested funds belongs
to the Lgs1latr1e. Such was the in-
terptOtatmon placed upon the law by the
Legislature of 1908 when it appropri-
ated aUl of said moneys to the several
eountes of the State for the construe-
tion of good roads. In a statement
published by the Trustees in February
last, they accounted for a cash balance
of 9 ,5846.16, all but a few dollars of
whiihu was reported to have been on de-
poe in various banks throughout the
State, but they made no statement as
to the rate of Interest being paid by
soel depositaries for the use of the
-mo0y and did not show the collection
of a penny for such use. The Trustees
showed that they held to secure the
safety of such deposits alleged securi-
ties belonging to the banks nominally
amounting to $816,000 in value, thus
leaving more than $26,000 unprotected
by securities. Do the people of Florida
believe that the Trustees have complied
with the law?
If Frank Clark who owes his elnc-
tion largely to Nassee county, would
uae a little of his energy in working for
a public building for Jernandina, in-
stead of making iran-stand plays to
the people by asking for millions of
dollars for draining frog ponds, he
would be earning his salary and ac'om-
plis ng something for the State which
ham flow twice honored him by sending
him to Conress. Fernandina News.
The above is a fair example that it
is hard for any one to please all. The
Honorable Frank has been a zealous,
active, working Congressman from the
very minute he landed in Washington.
and Just because he has not yet, and in
so short a time too, secured a public
building for Fernandina, the News goes
for him for making "grand-stanel
plays." Give him a little more time,
my brother, and Frank Clark will get
your building if any such thing could
"be did," by any of our representatives
in Washington. lion. Frank Clark mot
always gets what he goes after.
