Can it be that these gentlemen who
have been honored and trusted by their
constituents, have in view any object
save the welfare of the people whom
they serve? Can they have so far for-
gotten their duty to the people-one
that ranks next to their duty to God-
as to have been allured into favoring
this amendment as a means to perostu-
ate themselves in office and in power by
building up a political machine? Suob
a thought is almost impossible; yet who
will deny that the arbitrary-nay, the
indecent-position they have assumed,
and their at times almost rabid attacks
upon those who would question their
wisdom, has opened the way for all
sorts of conclusions by no means of a
complimentary nature?
The Tribune declines to make delib-
ate personal charges. It points to the
facts in the case and believes that the
voters in Florida will not be hood-
winked into 'passing a law that has no
proper place in the Constitution of the
State, and that bestows upon any five
of their follow citizens powers that, if
aroused, would result in most disastrous
consequences, and, even if used legiti-
mately, would be certain to result in
the construction of a powerful political
machine, the greatest of all inflictions
and the moot hateful menace to the
liberty of the people.-Tampa Tribune.

Our people surely cannot and will not

ple of Florda played In his hands, at an

The True Democrat sympathises with
the people in the overflowed district,
and, with the people of Florida, will do
all that is possible, legitimately, to

the opera house, on Tuesday atght,
October 80th. Let there be a large
crowd out to hear this very eloquent
and interesting debeter speak. It will
be a rare treat. Let everybody go,
WE ARE "KaonT."
The matter that appears each week
in the True Democratm s not in keeping
with the motto of that paper-"Good
Government; Homnsty in Pbic Offe1e;
Equal Justice to All-Special Privileges
to None." It appears to be in the-W
terest of the people. The Democrat
wil lose out in posing the drainage
Issu, as It did -on eding for
paya nt of the Wailes i cm. Get
right, Brother Collins I Suwannee
County News.
Our motto, quoted above, stands for
just what It says, and the policy of the
True Democrat from the first issue has
boe. for just what it means. The
Walls claim was repudiated some
years before the True Democrat was
established, and while its editor was on
a farm and for three years or more out
of the printing business; therefore we
could not possibly have lost out on it.
We have shown up a number of times
the peculiar tricks of some officials,
through lobbying enough members of
the Legislature into the opera house In
this city into an agreement to violate a
contract that had been recognized by
every Legislature and all Floridians up
to that time, to best Col. Walles out of
his commission. That most people of
Florida look upon that transaction as
repudiation and an unjust wrong, and
as a disgrace on our State, there is now
no doubt. But enough of that, as it is
not now the issue. Suffice to say Flor-
ida has repudiated an honest debt she
justly owes Col. Sidney I. Walles, and
the disgraceful stain will still be on
F'loridians until some honest settlement
is made,
The True Democrat does not believe
it will "lose out in opposing the drain-
age issue." Why should it, unless per-
haps by chiemnery and misrepresenta-
tion, as has been entered into, just as
was the case in connection with the
Walles claim and many other transac-
tions, such as in cheap land sales, etc.,
which have been so secretly worked in
recent years, the people of Florida can
again be hoodwinked and footed into
still a more oppressive piece of folly-
that of making five men a MOGUL
DRAINAGo BOARD, with power to de-
clare drainage tax districts when they
please and where they please, levy and
collect as much tax money as they
choose, and then spend It lavishly, un-
bonded and unaccountable to another
and higher power.
We are opposing this last big scheme
for political supremacy and power for
plunder directly in line with our motto:
"Good Government; Honesty In Public
Office; Equal Justice to All-Special
Privileges to None."
If Governor Broward and his double-
barrelled board are not sacrificing time
that should be put in at their offers,
begging and praying for the people of
Florida to make them a board of five
men, with special privileges, then
neither we nor the people of Florida
can see or hear, for every minute of
their time, backed with every force at
their command ar being used to fool
the people of Florida intogranting them
such powers. No men who wish to be
right and do right should seek and pray
for such power while holding public of-
fle. We are conscious of being right al-
ways in opposing official abuse of power,
and added to it a scheme taking trom
the people the right to have a say as to
what tax money should be collected and
expended. We do not believe the peo-
pie will vote to gave schemers any such
We oppose Gov. Napoleon Bonaparte
Broward and his schemers in this pro-
posed constitutional amendment (polit-
teal mill scheme) on general American
principles, and we believe a majority of
the voters of Florida will oppose them
on the 6th of November the same way.
Yes, we believe in "Good Govern-

ment; Honesty in Public Office; Equal
Justice to All-Special Privileges to
None!" Are not the little official gods

standing. We are the ones who pay
this special tax, and we only ask that
you permit us to tax ourselves to pro-
Lot our interests. Bar in mind that
this doe not cout you one cent, It falls
solely upon us.
With our helpless condition in your
mind's ye indld read tha enclosed
circular, think of our preeari-
os situation gad when you go to the
polls Tusaday, November 6, cast a bal-
ot that wl forever relieve us from
this annual menace which does now
and will ever threaten us until Lake
Okeechobee is brought nearer the
ocean's level Respectfully,
The Fort Myers Board of Trade says
they are not "asking financial aid, but
do ask your o-operation in the adop-
tion of the draags amendment."
Now, do you not see from whence this
appeal comes? Do you not see the
czarish earmarks of the five great
would-be moguls who wish to be the
Drainage Commissioners, the great
powers and privileges they are now
sacrificing their official duties for, mail-
ing miscellaneous documents from both
ends of the State to fool the voters of
Florida in their efforts to be made our
constitutional masters? To cover the
ground thoroughly read the following,
by "X.," from the People's Forum of
the Times-Union. It covers the whole
"A careful analysis of the notorious
drainage amendment must set any
thinking man to wondering what our
Legislature was about when such a
piece of Jugglery was allowed to pass
through their hands. It affords the
most gigantic opportunity for rascality.
it is the most monumental scheme for
placing in the hands of a few men un-
limited power for graft and giving
them autocratic control of a whole
state with no reaponeability to any one,
that a civilised community ever heard
of! Think of a Legislature giving away
the right, so far as It lies in their
power, to tax property in any part of
the State, to any extent and for an In-
definite number of years-and not only
tax it, but confscate it and take posses-
sion without notice; to increase or re-
duce at will the salaries of county offi-.
cers and to receive untold millions In
taxes with accountability to no one!
"Of course, the lawmakers will say:
'If the people do not want the law, let
them defeat the amendment at the polls.'
But this is a poor exeusa for failure
to guard the people's interests. The
watchman who aBllows the thief to enter
your property on the ground that you
can wake up and chase him out, if you
do not want him there, would soon be

discharged as an accomplice of rancals.
Further, it should be borne in mind
that the keen sbcheming that can get
such a barefaced attempt to annul the
rights of the people past the guardians
of the law. will uo all the means its
power, fair orfoul, to have It go through
at the ballot box.

Is of the utmost Importae ghat every
vote, and those who ar in-
terested in thetime turpentine or
land industries, and in fact every per-
son who owns or is in any way interest-
ed n,a foot of land in the State of
Floria, shouM study the proposed
amendment carefully, and consider for
himself just how it is going to affect
us. Do not let anyone fool you into
voting for this amendment by telling
ou t some other man's land is go-
toe taxd to benefit yours; this is
nottrue. When you vote 1r this
amendm t, you vote to burden your
own land with an unknown tax, and for
an unknown length of time.
What dos ,this proposed amendment
provide? It, briefly stated, provides:
hat the governor, the comptroller, the
attorney-general, the state treasurer
'sand the commissioner of agriculture
shall be crested a board of drainage
commissioners, and it gives thee five
men power to lay the State off in
drainage districts, and to levy a tax df
ten cents per acre on all lands included
within any drainage districts, for the
purpose o building canals, levees, dikes
and reservoirs for the purpose of drain-
age, Irrigation and commerce. It furth-
erives the commissioners power, in
addition to the tax of ten cents per acre
to levy a tax to pay for any work the
present board of drainage commission-
ers might have done court, And this is
not all. The proposed amendment, un-
der authority of an act of the Legisla-
ture of 1905. although that act of the
Legislature has been declared uncon-
stitutional by the United States court;
and this is not all. The proposed amend-
ment provides that the Legislature may
provide for the levy and collection of a
special benefit tax, to be levied and col-
lected from any lands which may be
benefitted by drainage. Now what does
this mean? It just means this: You
may own a tract of land in any county
in the State of Florida, your county Is
made a drainage district, and the tax
of ten cents per a are is levied op your
and nd collected from you by the
drainage commissioners; now let us sup-
pose your land receives a benefit from
any work done by the commissioners,
save you not already been once taxae
already to pay for that benefit? Cer-
tainly you ave, and it cannot be right
that your land should be subjected to a
second tax; still under the provisions of
this proposed amendment the Legisla-
ture may stope in and provide for a
special benefit tax to be collected out
o your land, to pay for a benefit for
which you have already been once taxed
and this special tax may be $1 per acre
or it may tbe $6 p acre, according to
Sthe benef it tisdecded your land has
'm'roeived. Ask yourself the question,
eard this be right?
Now let us consider the effect of all
this taxation upon the timber and land
interests of our State. Suppose you
own a tract of land in Duval or Putnam
county, and this amendment pames,
and your county is made a dmirains dis.

Live Oak Fla., Oct. 18.-Editor Dem-
ocrat-During the last primary election
campaign this county, in which I was
honored the third time as one of your
nominees to the House of Representa-
tives I expressed myself as being op-
poeed to the drainage scheme as I saw
the situation at that time, and I now
ask space in your paper to say to my
friends and the public generally that I
am still posed to the measure set
forth In the proposed amendment to the
constitution of the State.
A large acreage of the land proposed
to be drained is now in litigation. Sev-
eral years ago the Legislature granted
the land to certain railroad companies
for building railroads through various
sections of the State, and the trustees
of the Internal Improvement Fund have
not conveyed the said land in accord-
ance with Legislative action. Hence,
it is now a question for the courts to
determine who are the legral owners of
the land! During my career as a mem-
ber of the Legislature I have never vo-
ted to donate an acre of the public lands
to any railroad or other corporation, but
why spend the people's good money on
the drainage scheme until the question
of ownership is fully settled? The peo-
ple are supreme and can call the sub-
ject of drainage up at any subsequent
time if, in their judgment, such neces-
sity exists.
Ido not believe that it would be right
to require the taxpayers of Florida to
canal, ditch or otherwise improve lands
that may ultimately go to the railroads.
I believe that all officers who handle
large sums of the people's money should
be required to give good and sufficient
bond, but if you adopt the proposed
amendment to Article 16, of the Con-
stitution of the State of Florida, you
create a Board of Drainage Commis-
sioners consisting of five men, the gov-
ernor, the comptroller, the state treas-
urer, the attorney-general and the com-
missioner of agriculture, who will not
be required to give bond as such Drain-
ae Commissioners but will bW charged
th the responsibility of receiving and
disbursing all drainage funds, which
will, according to all estimates, reach
well into the millions of dollars, wheth-
er the Everglades can be successfully
drained or not.
I believe the officers above referred
to have enough daily work to do with-
out adding an additional burden of such
proportions on them.
The various tax collectors collecting
drainage assessments will not, under
the amendment, be permitted to pay
the drainage money over to the State
treasurer, who is under bond for the
faithful performance of his duty, but
will be required to make all payments
direct to the new branch of the State
gon.iuent known as the Board of
Drainage Commisaloners, five bondless
offers. Engraft this measure into the
Constitution and it will take years to
get rid of it. Adopt the amendment
ad you authorise and empower the
oa of Drahlage Commissioners to
tbadrainage districts and fix the
boundaries thereof Ia the State of Flor-
The Drainage Commissioners will
have further power of levying and col-
lecting. oin addition to the other taxes,
an acreage tax not to exceed ten cents
acre from the lands owned in such
drainage districts.
I am ooed to the amendment to
SCostatkm of the Stat, estab-
ishing a oard of Drainage Commis-
s.lms and drainage dit s pro-
posed and shall vote agamst the -
sitioat the a general ot ioin 0 .-

Let us consider this matter well be-
fore we vote on this proposed amend-
ment. Now, when our Stateis in the
best condition It has ever been when
our naval store and timber indutries
are at their very heights, when people
are flocking to our State in thousands
every year in search of homes, and our
lands are increasing in value evety day,
let us be careful that we do not ruin
the prosperity of our State by subject-
ing our land to such a dangerous tax
as will make it impossible to sell them.
The passage of this amendment will
surely beth e death-knell of many of
the industries of our State, which are
today the very backbone of our com-
merce. We cannot be too careful how
we take this leap in the dark. Have
the politicians who propose this scheme
really got the best Interests of the
State at heart? Or are they only seek-
ing to gain their own selfish ends?

It is the purpose of the Drainage
Commission to make these lands pay
for their own drainage. They have no
right to do so, since all the lands-not
the residue-belongs to the school fund.
In addition to this is the fact that
under present circumstances, these
lands could not be sold to advantage
now. The fact that they are in litiga-
tion would make it impossible to sell
them now for anything like half the
amount that could be gotten for them
if their title was clear.
But if they were not in litigation
they could not be sold to advantage
now. Outside of the drainage district
only about 8 per cent of the land of the
State is is in cultivation, and the im-
mense areas that are for sale make
the price paid for even the the best
land low. With the increase in the
population of the State this condition is
rapidly passing away, and the time is
not far distant when lands in Florida
will be valuable. Florida land is now
worth much more than twice as much
as it was ten years ago.
No one knows what the drainage of
the Everglades would cost. Four mil-
lion dollars is a low estimate. Of this
amount, under the present plan the
State would pay about $1,000000 or
about 60 cents per acre of the State
land to be drained.
If this land was sold now, with its
clouded title, with its distance from
transportation, while over 25,000,000
acres of land can be bought compara-
tively accessible to the railroads it
would sell for a song. A little of it
near Fort Lauderdale, on the Florida
East Coast Railway, would bring fair
prices, considering the disadvantages
under which it would be offered, but
after drainage the great body of it in
the interior, with Its title clouded,
could not be sold for $2 per acre. If it
would average that amount it would
net only about $4,000,000 for the school
fund, even allowing as low a cost as 60
cents per acre for drainage.
But if it would sell for $2 under pres-
ent circumstances it would sell for at
least $4 per acre the moment the final
decision was rendered awarding the
land to the State. This would net for
the school fund over $10,000,000, a dif-
ference of over $6,000,000 only by clear-
ing the title.
But if it would sell for $2 now, with
a clouded title or $4 with a clear title,
it would sell for at least $8 per acre
ten years hence or $16 twenty years
hence. This last sum would make
available $40,000,000 for the school
Drainage would cost leos ten or
twenty years hence than it would cost
now. Besides the fact that better
plans could be prepared, a good deal of
drainage would be done by individuals
in that time which would, to some ex-
tent, cheapen the drainage of State
lands. It i not sure that, with all the
adverse conditions, the land at present
would pay the cost of drainage. It is
sure that if drainage were delayed
until the land was needed the school
fund for the next generation would be
so large that its interest annually would
be sufficient to provide for every boy
and girl in Florida a liberal education
and our State would lead the world in
the education and intelligence of its

Ferry, Oct. It6.-A great deal of in-
terest is being taken here in the ques-
tion of drainage, and the vote on the
proposed constitutional amendment pro-
vidfng for it will probably not fall far
below the total vote cast. Gov. Brow-
ard's earnest advocacy of the measure,
with the comments they have aroused;
in the newspapers, have put the people
to talking and thinking, and there are
very few men in the country who have
not an opinion that they will not ex-
press an opinion at the polls.
Gov. Broward has many supporters
in the county who look at the question
as he does. Anything that will increase
the amount of taxable property t the
State appeals to the votes who take
pride In the growth of the State.
On the other hand, there are a large
number of men who are fearful of the
vast powers that this amendment would
confer on a board. The members of
the' drainage board, in a sease, are
elected by the people, aad i another
sense they are not. The board Io om-

The State ef Florida is in possession
of about three million acres of land-
that if it beloks to the State it be-
longs to the sMebools. The Leialature
has rated to railroads more land than
the State has, and the title to the lands
held by the State Improvement Board
is in litigation. If the railroads should
win neither tbe State nor any of its
people should be made to pay for the
ravagee of these lands. If the State
should win Florida would have an area

who have, that except around the
outer edges, the land is worthless after
being drained. Across New River,
from Fort Lauderdale going south,
nine-tenths of the lands near the rail-
road tracks present a coral-rock ap-

portion when they go to the ballot
boxes may be more than overcome by
the votes of the many who do not con-
sider it at all.
A very large number of the land
owners here look on the powers given
this board as dangerous. The fact that
a drainage district has been laid off in
South Florida does not preclude the
possibility of one being laid off in this
section. The board would have the
power to lay off as many drainage dis-
cts as they please and wherever they
please, and this would carry the power
to tax in these districts such lands as
they please. The land owners I ok on
the power to tax their land 10 cents per
acre, Irrespective of their value, as a
dangerous power from which they may
There are large turpentine and saw-
mill interests In this country. The
trees have been cut off large areas of
land and are being cut off more. These
cut-over lands are now of little value,
but in many emaes their owners wish to
hold them because they will grow up in
forests again and become valuable.
The section is so sparsely settled that
lands cannot be put in cultivation as
they are cleared. Their owners have
to wait for them to become valuable
again, either from a demand for land
to cultivate or a second growth of the
trees. A tax of 10 cents an acre per
annum on thee lands would be cones-
eatory. Men who wish to hold their
lands would find it very costly to do so.
On the other hand the possibility of
the imposition of their tax would great-
ly interfere with the saleof thee lands.
The purchaser as well as the man who
would sell would be on notice of the
possibility of this tax. He would know
of the power of the drainage commi-
sioners to Impose it, and that there is a
considerable area here that is sub-
merged during wet seasons. If the
commissioners wished to set apart a
drainage district in Middle Florida they
would fnd ample excuse for doing so,
for there are vast swamps in this and
adjoining counties. Every thoughtful
man who might buy Florida land would
do so with the knowledge that it might
be taxed for drainage purposes at the
rate of 10 cents per acre every year,
regardless of its value, and in addition
to the tax that would be imposed for
general purposes.
This unquestionably will have a de-
pressing effect on the value of lands
roughout the State, whether used for
farming or turpentining. Some of the
timber of the State-the cypress tim-
ber, at least-would be killed by draw-
ing off the water. Little of the pine
land would be benefited, for while water
stands in the flatwoods during the rainy
season, it is not of sufficient depth to
interfere with the turpentine men or
the mill men.
The objections to the amendment
stated apply anywhere in the State, and
they apply to all classes, but lumber,
turpentine and stock men have a pros-
pect of being hardest hit because they
own larger bodies of land that is lying
idle and is of little present value.

Palmetto News: In his last communi-
cation T. Totuller, the News' corre-
spondent from Long Prairie, Manatee
county, pays the News the following
compliment, and then jumps on us
with both feet because our search-light
illuminates the Everglades to greater
extent than does his old-time rying-
pan and pine-knot blase. Hear him:
"While conversing on this theme our
minds naturally drifted to the many
giant minds who held views similar to
ours on the drainage question. We
wondered why the editor of the News
was not on the list. A man of his
mental caliber, overcoming oppo ition
from all sides, fearlessly meeting, with
irresistible argument, the attacks from
less successful and envious editors-
who unearthed the Palmetto News
from rubbish of obscurity, and, as if by
magic, transformed it to the leading
pper of Manate county, and a prom-
sing rival to any in the State-how
this man could say "Let us use what
available lands we have first, and then
drain the Everglades," was a mystery
to us."
According to promise, the News will
briefly give a few of its reasons. And
it has been pretty generally asserted
by the papers of the State in favor of
the "experiment" that all papers op-
posed to the drainage scheme are in
with the corporation and railroads, the
News will state that it neither stands
in with the corporations, nor is it giv-
ing the Governor taffy for a fat ap-
pointive office. It is looking to the in-
terest of the majority of the people of
the State, and does not think the drainm-
ing of the Everglades (were it possible)
would result to the good of the peo-
ple of the State generally.
It has not been the pleasure of the
News editor to visit Everglades, but it
has been learned from reliable parties

Way That Costlmstleal Amaedmnt
ShesMk Nt Pass-Vet AaTlast It
Is to TV Ov INseaee and a the
ateore f Torm Fellow CItsems.
Let's drop all technical ques-
tions as to the practicability of
successfully draining the Ever-
glades, as to their value to the
people when drained, and even
as to whether we need these
lands badly enough to increase
our taxes for this purpose, and
discuss a phase of the question
not requiring technical knowl-
edge, but which may be under-
stood by every taxpayer and citi-
sen: The L. & N. Railroad Com-
pany claims the Everglades as a
grant to them by the Florida
Legislature. The Internal Im-
provement Board claims that the
Legislature's grant was without
legal authority and is void. The
question of ownership is pending
in a case before the courts, and
will be decided solely on laws al-
ready enacted. Who owns the
Everglades? Who will own them
after our money has been spent
to drain them? If the railroad
company wins its suit, then every
cent invested in drainage will go,
along with the land, to the rail-
road company. Do you want
your money spent improving
property which you have no sure
title to, and which may finally go
to this corporation? If we drain
this property, is it not business
common sense to wait until we
are si who owns it, the State
or the railroad? Governor Brow-
ard has claimed that the anti-
drainage movement and all its
arguments were in the interest
of and prompted by the railroads.
Might we not more logically claim
that the Governor's high-handed
efforts to force this drainage on
an unwilling citizenship was in
the interest of the L. & N. Co.,
and that he is really endeavoring
to spend the people's money
(while the question of ownership
is being fought out in the courts)
to increase the value of the now
almost worthless lands so that
the railroad company might profit
when the question of ownership
is decided in its favor? Don't
you think so, fellow-voter?
Again, the Governor and his
backers are now working over-
time in the effort to amend the
constitution, so as to give them
powers which no five officers
should have. The right to de-
lare drainage distriots where-
ever, they pleas and whenever
th please, to be unbonded and
unaccountable for their acts. If

adopted, they will have the the con-
stitutional right to handle public
matters to suit themselves; the
power to build up a political ma-
chine to control the whole State.
Has not the Internal Improve-
ment Board now more power and
privileges than they should have?
Have they not already sold lands
at a sacrifice and abused the
power they already have? Do
they ever let the public know
what they are doing? Is there a
citizen of Florida who ever sees
a statement of what expendi-
tures they have made or are mak-
ing, even now, in dredge build-
ing or drainage operations? None
that we know of. Is it not reas-
onable, then, for us to expect
that if the constitutional amend-
ment is adopted, making them a
constitutional part of the govern-
ment, accountable neither to the
Legislature or any other author-
ity, the main desire for it is they
hope to build up the strongest
political machine Florida has ever
known, and that Floridians would
suffer for it?
Would it be safe to place any
such power in any five public
officials? Read and study that
proposed amendment carefully,
and see for yourself what they
ask for, and we feel sure you
cannot decide to vote for the
passage of it at the November
The amendment is published on
our first page, along with other
matter connected with it. Read
it. carefully!

The late Sam P. Jones was a firm be-

of this fact, he carried one of the larg-

On one occasion Mr. Jones preached
a notable sermon, and. as was frequent-

letter of his text and interpolated cer-
tain remarks in regard to the benefits

Mr. Editor-Pleass give a to to
article just as I have senat tn. I c
not like to multiply words. but w
ean't take everything and not resent it
Bud you wanted to call me a "story
teller" about the baseball but youe
didn't have the nerve. Well, now, you
correct my statement dated Septem-
ber 28. You say there was no such
Same played. I my there was. There
was asame played between Pine Grove
and Woodvdlle on September 8, just
two weeks before the one which we are
disputing. In the first ame there
were five Pine Grove sehoh. playing,
andm the other four players did not be-
long to the Woodville first nine, either.
One might have. In the other ame
there were two Pine Grove boys ptyed
who recite lessons about five days in
a week, but I gueso they played too
well to count them school boys. Well,
call them men, then. And the others
who made out the nine were not all of
tO Woodville first nine, as two from
oMiaon Pond have never played with
Woodville, and three others I know did
not play on the Woodville first nine on
Jul 4, which makes seven players,
without any of the first nine. In the
first game the score stood 7 to 6 In
favor of Pine Grove; in the second
Pine Grove was too far ahead Now,
then, I ay t right out to "Scholar's"
fawce that he told a little falsehood, not
through mistake, but to hold up his
own aide. He didn't mean any harm.
And as to the spelling contest: If the
Woodville teachers' feelings were hurt
we are eorry for we did not intend to
be anything but polite to all who came.
Your sore looked very well indeed,
but if you an give na a list of the
fifty pupils who actually spelled we
would appreciate it. And I am sure
there were eleven spelled on our aide;
you counted only ten. And-besides,
you all would not spell until one side
had minced. There is no use to may you
did not know the Pine Grove teacher
was to spell, for it was distinctly un-
dertood between your prinelpar and
herself, about three days beots the
contest came off that she was to spell
on the Pine Grove side, and he was
privileged to put up either of his
assistants against her. They refused
to spell with her. She spelled with the
school until the others from Pine Grove
missed; then there were three left on
Woodville side. They wouldn't spell
any longer. Then Maxie Robinson, one
of their best peIlers, I suppose, decided
to apell with her through a hundred
words. He spelled until about twenty
words were spelled; during the time he
missed three words, while she did not
miss any at all. Because she refused
to spell beyond the assigned lesson he
claimed that he was not beaten. We
think 112 pages in Reed's Word Les-
sons Is enough to spell in one evening,
rnd we think three words to nothing is
enough to call beaten, too. I did not
think of writing this article but I
never would take a dare, and since you
speak of our not treating you with due
respect, I would just ask "Scholar" if
it is a trick of theirs to swipe all the
baseball bats they see around? I
reckon our boys can buy another. We
heard that you all were short of bats.,

any justas, proprietor eom g hfal.-
os In thi state of dtaars? Itisho-
gether a misfit sad wrong, sad our pe-
pie should nak huet to retlfy It by
voting tor the adoption of the proposed
amendment, otberwis they ean epest
nothing else th see their bhighetert
of last resort filled In a short time with
fourth or fifth rate "bystrs" whocan.
not make their salt practicing law or
anything else. The cry of the blatant
demgogue i opposition to al such
measures isthat It will lor an "ain
erese of taxes." The truth is that no
such inerease will follow. The present
levy of taxation, sad even a far less
rate of taxation than is now imposd,
will supply largely more than the
amount of the inerase in salaries with-
out a cent of deficit in any direction.
That this last statement is true is now
fully and indisputably demonstrated in
the fact that the Lesilatureof 1906, in
anticipation of the fact that the people
would ratify an amendment to their con-
stitution that was so elf-evidently nee-
essary, just and wise, have already ap-
propriated money in the treasury to
meet the proposed increase in salaries
that was collected from past rates of
taxation without a particle of increase.
By all means let the amendment be

mitting the drainage amendment to the

Sfto bed by the Governor's staff and
oews that eansial from tdewatsm
to Lake Okeebobe would eoet a mil-
lon dollar and, at the present rate of
progre, require twenty years for .s-
pletion. ItIs ldleto elam in the Itght
of t eae f e that the whole work
subsidary drains would east less thae
teo million dollars. Where will the
Governor get thq money To saddle a
debt llkeithi eo aom eounta for the
benefit of the State would b ecnisca-
tion-for the beneft of a railroad or
railroads would be robbery aso--both
forbidden by our aonstltutlos. Such a
debt would put South Florlda back to
the condition of a wilderness.
The State's credit is good, but If the
State endsmes the paper, the State
would do better to loan those counties
the money and eollest the interest for
Its own treasury.
How will the Gove... get the money?
His plan to drain and sell and drain
again is absurd-no land drained will be
ate till the week is complete, sad to
watt isto lsetall the work done. In
one season of waiting any nal in the
Everglades would be filed.
If the Governor really contemplates
doing the work he must have a plan for
getting the means. In the absence of
anythngyet shown us in the shape of
knowledge and money, It is unreason-
able to smppose that he hopes to finish
the job.
What then? Under the law he asks
from as he could bold up a political
mashime In twenty years or in one
year he could build a machine that
would boss us for twenty years. And
saee that is all he could do, If he be
reasonable man, that's what he wants
to do. It remains to be seen whether
we want him to do It under pretense of
an Impreaticable, unnecessary and fool-
ish proposition to drain the Everglades.
So far, public attention has been al-
most wholly absorbed in the discussion
of the proposed "Drainage Amend-
ment", but we would earnestly call the
attention of the voters to another pro-
posed amendment to the constitution to
be voted upon at the election next
month, that should by all means be
adopted, as It is of the most vital im-
partance to the future well-being of our
State, and intimately touches the most
sared rights of life, liberty and proper-
ty of evely ittisen, no matter how hum-
ble may e ois eoddition. That amend-
mentw s the one providing a slight in-
ease In the salaries of justices of the
Supreme sand Circuit courts. The pres-
ent wholly adequate salaries were
Axed upward of 80 years ago, since
which time the price of almost all the
eessilties ad lfe have advanced nearly
40 per cent., and continuously climbing
upward., until It has already reached
the point where a judge with a family
eamnot eke out of it even an ordinarily
emfortable living, to say nothing of
educating his children or laying up any-
thing for the rainy days of old age. Al-
ready within the past eight years six of
our ablest jurists have voluntarily quit
the bench of our Supreme Court and re-
turned to the bar, because they could
sot decently live on the salary paid.
Theae men are all of them now making
at the practice of law from two to five
times the amount paid them a judges.
The people are entitled to, and their
dearest itereets demand that they
hour have their very beet and ablest
lawyer on the bench of their highest
sourt of last resort, that has the Anal
say-o upon their lives, liberty and prop
erty, but how can they In common
reason expect to procure the servieee
of this requisite highest talent, at a
pries less than half or a fifth of what It
command at the practice of law, with
far less work and with not half the re-
sponslbillty? Our Governor, with no

that would keep Jennings, Broward A

accountable and unbonded, to levy, col-

do any outrageous and cunning act they

the people of Florida vote the schemers
