The Governor was working for some
sweet revenge when he advocated the
muzzling of the State press. Other men
of larger calibre than our Governor
have before attempted this grand stand
play and it proved about as dismal an
effort as "the recent effort." The press
is an institution of too long standing to
be rililed by such flitting shadows as
Pennypacker, BrowardA Company-....-
Damage suits by politicians, who claim
that they have been severely wronged
by the press are getting to be as com-
mon as sandflies min this great and glori-
ous State of ours. Yet these same
politicians from their exalted position
on the stump, make all kinds of caustic
remarks about the prem, and most of
them personal, yet you never hear of
an editor rushing into a damage suit.

I have been a very great sufferer
from the dreadful disease, rheumatism,
for a number of years. I have triea
many medicines, but never got much
relief from any of them until two years
ago when I bought a bottle of Cham-
berlain's Pain Balm. I found relief be-
fore I had used all of one bottle, but
kept on applying it and soon felt like a
different woman. Through my advice
many of my friends have tried it, and
can tell you how wonderfully it has
worked.-Mrs. Sarah A. Cole 140 S.

will be a Joatmetgof dh commit-
tee me .sBton of m tehoe nd sn-
ate, at wleb the question of uniform-
ity or a.tiauiformityof text books will
be dicasud by able advocates. The
session will be open, and it is expected
by eaeh chairman that the entire mem-
bership of the legislature will try to be
present.
The Saxham Mflus.
When our boys began to talk of a
military organisation, the first thing de.
cided upon was that the name "Gov-
ernor's Guards" should be debrred.
It broshbt bad luck, the company never
thrived whn it bore that name; again
ad am it went to the wall. So they
beame the "'Bloxham Rifles." Now
they will flourish. The name that is
treaured In the hearts of our people as
be ing anonymous with loyalty and sac-
es Wll inspire the boys to build up a
Slean, orderly organization that will en-
dare and be a credit to them and a
sear.e of pride to their fellow citizens.
The True Democrat congratulates the
mlny! upon the suces they have al-
had in gathering together so
msay good men and also in the selec-
tie o thder officers.
Next week we will give a list of the
members, also of honorary members

TH TRUl DEMOCRAT.
PMM o. COLLMS. Puusher.
PUtBLUUmD MV= FRIDAY MORNING.

A Am S S ii P iOTI M.
Whether or not Seaumtr John S.
Beard, of Pesaeola, introduced his
propositi, for a amendment to the
State iCo(Mts 0 l olvtng and qwu-
tionug the validity and force of the
14th and 15th amendments to the Con-
stitution of the U'-ltod States, as a
means of making himself nationally
prominent, as a possible aid to his ax-
piratlons to a United States senator-
ship or simply for the fun he would get
out of it, is immaterial. The only
really remarkable thing about It was
the fact that all of the state senator.
with five notable exceptions should
have voted for it. The names of these
five far-seeing prote.tants against ,uch
folly will be long remembered, not only
kly their immediate constituents, but
\Iy the people of Florida atjge They
are: Senators Buckman, ( ottrell,
Crane, Henderson and Humphries.
As an illustration of the manner in
which this absurd prooomition in viewed
by wise and conservative citizens of
Florida, we reproduce the following
thoughtful communication, by lion. U.
M. Cooper, from the columns of the
Times-Union:
To the Timen-Union: When it waxi
stated, before the meetingof the legis-
latare, that an amendment to the con-
stltution of the state would be intro-
duced providing that only white people
shall vote at elections in this state, few
people took the proposition seriously
a that the senate should have passed
it, can only be accounted for on the
supposition that that body gave the
matter no serious consideration. Hav-
ing passed the senate, however, it be-
eomes a matter of real consequence
and danger to the welfare of the state.
It is to be hoped that the house will
realize in time how useless and mis-
chievous the proposition is, and what
evils its adoption would inevitably bring
upon the people.
The state is prosperous, its govern-
ment is entirely under white control,
the negro is not troubling himself or us
about voting, and the federal govern.
meant is not molesting us. Why should
we hunt trouble and force a conflict
with the United States, in which we
asould Inevitably be run over and
aashaed up? Some southern states
ha I rtd provisons In their conati.
tutions whkh Indirectly limit the ngMro
vote, but thee mproviona are so worded
e to apply on their face to all voters
regardless of color. No state has yet
committed the folly of adopting a pro-
V openly snd directly in conflict
with fiftenth amendment to the
eonetitution of the United States. Ac-
eoodlng to newsPper reports, the
amendment was advocated in theenate
and pasAed that body on the theory
that the fifteenth amendment was not
legally adopted. More than thirty.
seven years ago that amendment, pro-
viding that the right of citizens of the
United States to vote shall not be de.-
nied or abridged by any state on account
of race, color or previous condition of
aevitude, was offIcially declared and
proclaimed to have been adopted and
was put Into effect. Since then it has
beM frequently recognized and acted
on by the supreme court of the United
states and all branches of the federal
government as a valid and operative
portion of the constitution
Whether or not there might ever
have been any basis for the contention
, that the amendment was not legally
adopted, or whether or not there could
Opte been any direct proceeding at the
time to test that question, in wholly im-
material and need tnot Ie hI|Cusst, for
no court, and c.pecially no United
States court would now entertain or
consider it This has been the. settled
doctrine of the federal courts ever since

United States nearly sixty years ago in

A P3 r PRO -
The prsee is an organ of tC- people.
A free press isTan organ of a free peo-
ple. To y that the pr" men are
las is to say that the whole people are
liars. There may be inee-racles and
lie In the pros, but gag law is not the
aure. Some of these inaeuracies are
due to the haste incident to getting out
a large oaily edition. Some of the lies
in them may be wilfull, but that is no
reason why all other papers or even that
one paper should be gagged. There are
other remedies to top lying. If a man
swears, the way to cure him is not to
tell him that he must never open his
mouth or talk any more. We have
laws to rectify most of the errors of
the press but their benefits are so much
greater than their errors that we ought
to vote them freedom. Press men know
that liberty is not license. Press men
know also that they are not themselves
liars just because tIhey differ from some-
one else. We are a free people. We
have a right to free speech and to a
!ree press. Gag laws should be hung
up in the museum of antiquities among
the relic' of barbarism, curiosities in
an advanced civilization. Our fathers
paid too dearly for our liberties of
speech, for the fre-edom of the press
and for religious liberties for us ever to
lay thorn down. The pathway along
which the armin of civilization have
manrhed show the bloody tracks where
fierce encounter.; have taken place be.
tween tyranny on theone side and pop-
ular right on the other. Every public
man in the country in open to criticism.
Bryan, Roosevelt, Cleveland, McKin-
ley, Rockefeller, Carnegie -all are pub-
lic men, and are constantly being scored,
for the most part unjustly, I would,
fain believe, but they don t want to
rob a free people of a free press.
Whatever lies they have tocomplain of
can be cured some other way. The:
newspaper men of Florida are among,
the very best men of Florida. Located
at strategical points, they are fighting
the eo ple's battles. They and corpor-
ations likewise are people's best friends,
as a rule.
FraaBk Clark and Newspapers.
lion. Frank Clark, one of Florida's
brainest as well as bent men, made an
address in Tallahassee Wednesday night
during the meeting of the county sup-
erintendents, who were in session. I is
address, as usual, was fine and to the
point. But because he had occasion to
mention yellow journalism the Broward
crowd have begun to howl that it is be-
cause the Governor has sued the Times-
Union. One member in conversation
with us said, "you ought to have heard
Frank Clark give the newspapers h -11."
Frank Clark did not attack the press of
the state, as no man in all Florida has
more friendly feelings for the press
than he, and no man is more willing to
be criticized in his official capacity. He
feels and says that the pFs has a per-
fect right to enlighten the people about
public men and measures. Do not get
excited, ye Broward followers Frank
Clark is all right and will be holding
places of pubhelic trust long after the
present governor has retired to private
life. Dade City Star.

The Czar of Russia has never had the
power to suppress a free expression of
opinion by newspapers upon public
measures as the Governor of Florida
has asked the Legislature to give to
the courts of this State in the passage
of laws to prosecute editors who dare
to criticise the acts of public officials,
unless they first find out that their
statements are absolutely true. A free
country would it not be if such a law
were passed by the Legislature. The
Legislature this week appointed a very
strong committee to investigate the
workings of the Internal Improvement
Board in connection with the attempt to
drain the Evarglades and of the Board's
various salem of State lands to secure
funds to prosecute this drainage scheme
of the Governor's The committee is
