for a Pemsanent K pcampmt Act.
Senator Louis C. Massey, who is
chairman of the commission appointed
by Governor Broward under an act of
the last Legislature to select and
recommend to the next Legislature a
suitable tract of land for use as a per-
manent camp site for the Florida State
troops, has called a meeting of the
commission, to be held at the Windsor
. hotel, in Jacksoeville, at 8:30 p. m., on
January 8, 1907.
This commission consists of Hon.
Louis C. Massey, who represents
Orange county in the State Senate;
Hon. William M Girardeau, Senator-
elect from Jefferson county; Hon.
Eugene S. Matthews, member of the
House of Representatives from Brad-
ford county; Gen. J. Clifford E. Foster,
Adjutant-General of Florida; Gen.
Charles P. Lovell, retired; Gen. John
S ho. Sackett. commanding the brigade,
and Col. Henry Bacon, Surgeon Gen-
eral of the Florida State troops. The
act providing for the commission speci-
fies that one of its members shall be a
competent engineer and one a medical
or sanitary officer. Gen. Sackett and
Col. Bacon were specially selected be-
cause of their qualifications in these re-
The first meeting of the commission
was held at Lake City, Fla., on October
18. 1905, where the commission organ-
ised by the selection of Hon. Louis C.
Massey as chairman and Gen. Foster as
secretary. At that meeting the follow-
ing resolution was adopted:
"Resolved, That this commission will
recommend as a permanent camp site
for the Florida State troops only a tract
of land embracing in a body at least
three hundred acres, high and health-
fully located, with adequate supply of
good water, preferably on a large lake
or stream of run ing water, and cen.
rally located with regard to railway
transportation. Such tract must be
located from three to five miles from
the nearest city."
The commission then adjourned sub-
ject to the call of the chairman, it
being understood that the adjournment
was taken for the purpose of allowing
persons who have knowledge of the
location of tracts of land which will
meet the specifications set out in the
above resolution to give notice of the
same to the commission.
It is understood that quite a number
of propositions have been presented,
coming from various sections of the
State; and advance notice of the meet.
ing to be held in January is being given
in order that any other persons or com-
munities having propositions to submit
may be able to get the same before the
commission prior to its final meeting.

proof of his pluck to do a thing that
cost some congressmen their seats
years ago when a similar measure was
up and might easily do so again. ".ut
Mr. Clark is in no danger. We are
fond of just those qualities of frank-
ness and courage in him and if the bill
had become law through his vote.
