Dear Sir:-I beg to herewith submit
my report on county convict camp of
deas', located at Woodville, Florida.
I visited this camp on Feb.18, 1908, and
Sound the following: I found the bed-
to consist of seven small wooden
~bun, with mattresses, blankets and
ilows, no pillow cases or sheets were
furnished at all. The blankets and
mattresses were in a filthy condition.
There were only seven bunks, and sev-
enteen men (the day of my visit) and I
understand at times they have more
prisoners. It was also reported to me
that at times they were compelled to
sleep four in one bunk. The floors of
dining room and sleeping cell were very
dirty and looked as if they had not been
rbbed since built, and it looks as
though it has been some time since it
has been swept, judging from the
amount of loose sand on the floors. I
find one white man in the camp who is
compelled to sleep with his bunk against
the closet, and he is compelled to sleep
here, and this man reported that he had
to sit up one night to keep from sleep-
ing with a negro, and the man made
this statement in the presence ot the
captain, who did not deny it. This
man complains of haviug to smell this
odor all night. The closet being only
an ordinary tub set in the building.

I 'axamfned the buckets in which they
S had their supper, which consisted of a
small quantity of rice, a small piece of
meat and two pieces of corn bread,
which was very poorly cooked. I was
also told by the prisoners that every-
thing they got to eat was cooked in the
afternoon for the next day, so they on-
ly got one warm meal per day. I also
asked them if they ever got any coffee
to drink, the reply was no. and all
seemed very anxious to have coffee for
breakfast in the morning, which I or-
dered the captain to give them, which
he said would be impossible to do for
they always take their breakfast to the
woods in a bucket and eat out there.
they also take their dinner with them,
and only have a small half-gallon tin

I found confined in this camp a negro
by the name of Verge Smallwood, who
is serving a second sentence. Was first
sentenced for 60 days by John Craig, a
justice of the peace in the northern end
of this county, and while serving this
first sentence he got in a difficulty with
another prisoner, and in the fight with
the other prisoner hit him over the head
with a syrup boltle, and the day he was
Sdischarged, after serving his first sen
tence, Mr. Rhodes had the deputy sher-
iff and the justice of the peace present,
this justice being Mr. Page, of Wood-
ville. Was resentenced for 12 months,
but Mr. Rhodes told the justice that
this was entirely too much and to give
him 6 months, and the Justice then re-

Mr. John G. Collins, Tallahaesee, Fla.
Dear Sir: I enelosea letter from Hon.
Jam Wilson Secretary of Ariulture
which you wll please publish for the
benefit of your readers. There is some
disposition on the part of the Tobaeco
Department here, not to do as much
work for the tobacco farmers in the
way of instruction, etc., as in past
years. However, the Department can
give such assistance to our tobacco
farmers as they may need. You might
publish this letter also if you deem
proper. With kind regards,
Very trul yours,

Department of Agriculture. Office of
the Secretary, Washington, January
Hon. W. B. Lamar, House of Repre-
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge
the receipt of your letter of December
27th, regarding tobacco work in Leon
We expect to continue to assist the
tobacco growers in that county and
have arranged with Mr. George T. Mc-
Neos. formerly with the Department,
and now in the tobacco business in that
section, to cooperate with the Depart-
ment in carrying on experiments, espec-
ially by testing the improved varieties
of tobacco which we have developed by
seed selection and breeding, and by fer-
tilizer experiments, with a view to de-
termine the best and most economical
methods of fertilizing tobacco lands in
The most important problem in this
connection seems to be the production
of uniform varieties of tobacco, and it
is our plan to adopt, by breeding and
seed selection, our improved varieties
to the local conditions of the soils in
Leon County, and to furnish the grow-
ers with a limited amount of seed of
these varieties, in order that they may
produce more uniform and desirable
types of tobacco. In this connection,
Mr. McNess has agreed to furnish the
growers who are interested in this sub-
ject with such information as to the
methods of handling seed beds, cultiva-
ting and growing tobacco, as they may
desire. We believe this arrangement
will provide the best conditions for the
development of the industry on a sound
basis, and I beg to assure you that we
will be glad to do everything in our
power to further the production of de-
sirable wrapper tobaccos in this section.

"Almost every observant newspaper
editor in the state of Florida has doubt-
less recognized the fact that one of the
truly remarkable men of Florida is Dr.
Lincoln Hulley, President of Stetson
University. A great responsibility rests
upon him, and he is carrying it in the
most admirable manner. Details of op-
posing circumstances that confront him-
and of his successful efforts to discharge
his duties, are familiar to newspaper
people who refrain from discussing
them for the simple reason that it w
"none of their business;" nevertheless,
they cannot help admiring and sympa-
thizing with the man who devotes him-
self so earnestly unceasingly and un-
wearingly to his great work. Editor

The two union printers, young men of
high order, came immediately to this
office and have been employed here
since they were released from the Olus-
tee camp, about three weeks ago. We
have employed and worked ourself with
union printers for more than thirty
years-near forty, and in all that time
have never had better, considered from
every view point, both being morally
clean, honest, faithful, quiet, polite,
and attentive to their duties. This
treatment was a terrible outrage, com-
mitted in sunny Florida, United States
of America and furnishes an ABUNDANT
PRoor that things are radically wrong
and disgraceful, and that Floridians can
find plenty to criticize; yes, .and hang
their head in shame over. The True
Democrat does not criticize affairs for
personal reasons, or in a venomous
spirit. Citizens of Florida open your
own ears aad eyes, and investigate
some for yourselves, and you will find
our position on these public matters,
most times, if not always, based on
facts. There is a machine within a ma-
chine, in this state; a wheel within a
a wheel, or as it were, a ring within in
ring; and it is not working to the gen-
eral interest of the people of Florida.
Read the following from the Ocala
POVERTY, PANICS, TRAMPS.
A recent issue of the Times-Dispatch
of Richmond, Va., contained the fol-
"Besought from without by innumer-
able petitions for help and hard pressed
from within by the condition resulting
from a nearly exhausted supply of
funds, the Associated Charities finds
itself grappling with a situation that is
almost beyond its powers. An empty-
handed throng comes daily to the doors
of the mission, often bringing with
them empty baskets that speak more
eloquently than words of the want in
the home from which they come.
Proud men are humbled by unpaid rents
and hungry mouths."
And so the story runs, not only in
Richmond, but in nearly every com-
munity throughout the United States.
We saw a sight in Ocala the other
day that was shocking to our moral
sensibilities. We saw a gang of men
file by us-enough almost to fill a car
-in handcuffs. Thirteen of this gang
were strong, stalwart white men.
What was their crime? We repeat it
in sorrow. It was the misfortune of
In the language of the ste*jtes of
this state, .nade and provided for in
such cases, thee men had "no visible
means of support."
We are toid, and it is a fact, that the
wheels of factories in our larger com-
mercial centers no longer revolve. Lum-
ber mills in our own midst are closed
down. Turpentine farms have been
largely curtailed. Railroads, owing to
a lack of business, have discharged
many of their employes. Thousands
and thousands of men, suddenly and
without notice, have been thrown out
of employment, and yet with strong
arms and stalwart frames and a will-
ingness to work, as was shown before
the panic, they are now arrested as
criminals and sent to the chain gang
and turpehtine farms to labor as slaves.
Isn't our very civilization a hollow
mockery? Isn't our treatment of the
unfortunate- those who are victims of
untoward conditions a travesty on
justice? Isnft our statute dealing with
these unfortunate people a very night-
mare of ignorance and cupidity.

in this city.
The lovely weather of Tuesday per-
mitted the presence of a large attend-
ance at the reception, and Mrs. Gam-
ble's handsome parlors were filled with
a social crowd, who spent a delightful
hour of chat over their tea-cups.
In the front parlor, Mrs. Gamble, as-
sisted by Mrs. Hayden, Miss Anna
Chaires and the guest of honor, Dr.
Niles, received her guests. After a
few moments of conversation with their
hostess, and of greeting to Dr. Niles,
the callers were passed on to the care
of the ladies whose business it was to
see that everybody was refreshed with
dainties from the tea tables.
These were placed in alcove at the
back of the parlors, and adorned with
exquisite flowers, and spread with de-
licious refreshments of chicken and ham
sandwiches, cakes, tea, both hot and
cold, and het chocolate.
It was very gratifying to note the
presence of an unusual percentage of
gentlemen, as, ordinarily, the lordly sex
in Tallahassee is chary of lending its
presence to such a "frivolous" gather-
ing as an afternoon tea. Among the
most prominent of these guests were
Governor Broward, ex-Governor Blox-
ham, Captain R. E. Rose Professor J.
C. Calhoun, Dr. S. E. Tucker and Judge
B. A. Meginniss.

he was the negro's attorney, and bound,
while he remained such, to do his best to
get him free.

a t of fairness, I hope that you will
bUsh it once more with my reply:
"Almost weekly we see mention in
of oear exchanges of the presence

stances these notices have stated that

cate of the candidacy of the Hon. John
N. C. Stockton for governor. One of
these gentlemen, State Senator John
Neel, of Holmes county, was in Bra-
dentown two weeks ago and talked
Stotkton to this scribe. Is it possible
that the State administration, or that
branch of it, is being used to advance
the political interests of Mr. Stockton?
If Editor Humphries had stated that
the above was taken from a private
and coamdential conversation and had
published his part ot the conversation
it wold not have shown so much pre-
judle and malice. Mr. Humphries
started the conversation by asking me
who I thought was the fastest man in
the race for governor. I told him,
judging from the expressions of the
people, that in my opinion John Stock-
ton was. I will not be as unfair to him
as he was to me and statewhathe
said, but in reference to governor and
United States senator. Speaking for
myself, I will say frankly, that I do
nohtpow who Governor Broward, nor
a single member of his cabinet, are
supporting for governor. I have never
asked them, nor they have never vol-
untarily given me this information. I
do know that since I have been 21 years
old I have voted as I pleased, without
consulting any person, and I do not
think that because I hold an office
through an appointment by the govern.-
or that this prohibits me from express-
ig my opinion as to who I think is the
best man for governor, or any other
office, regardless of whether the gov-
ernor is for or against the man.

The True Democrat's response to the
Pensacola News' "demand" for the
NAMES of the "straight-out" machine
leaders sure hit 'em on.the raw.

of nothing to say but "you're a liar !'
-tAe last resort of the exposed. The
News also "e to be told who

Clay County Times, so he Talla-
editor of that paper took it up,
-wonder of wonders !-gives the
whole thing dead away by boldly ac-
knowledging that there is a machine,
and claims that it is a "good thing." So
it is, for its pets and hangers-on, and
the "pee-wees" that sing the praises of
its leaders and managers. Of course,
the Times had to abuse the former
leaders of the Florida Democracy-
such men as Dr. Crawford, Bloxham,
Dyke, Drew, Mitchell, Fleming, Gwynn,
Henry D'Etmgle, and a score of others
who, if living, are not now known in
the Democratic organization. And it
also had to ring in a lot of fulsome bal-
derdash about the great (?) thingsJen-
nings has done.
Yes, Jennings has done some big
things. Instigated and inspired by the
"Straight-out" machine, he has done
his little best to disrupt and destroy all
that was decent and orderly and square
in the Florida Democratic organization.
We shall hear more from the other
pee-wees, but we will bet a dollar to a
dime that not one will follow the Times'
lead in confessing that there is a ma-
HARD TO PLEASE.
The Tallahassee True Democrat fails
in its duties as a newspaper when it
suppresses the facts about the alleged
"deplorable occurance" at the capitol.
The people of Florida are entitled to all
the information obtainable about things
that transpire in their public offices.
This is the second mysterious affair that
has occurred at Tallahassee recently,
and the press of that city has not yet
enlightened its readers.-Tampa Evng.
News, Feb. 27.
Now, you have gone and said some-
thing sure enough; but pray, why go,
for us Tallahassee newspapers in such
manner for "falling short" on such oc-
casions, when the Jacksonville, the
Tampa, the Pensacola, and other daily
newspapers have right in the capitol
building, paid men or women to keep
them posted, who alsd "failed in these
duties." The True Democrat pleads
guilty in having done wrong in simply
alluding to them, and we are truly sor-
ry we did, and when we make such ad-
mission, or apology for it, if you please,
it goes that we will not be so guilty
again.- But pray. dear brethren of the
daily press, you who thus throw little
stones at us; why do you not have your
hired people at Tallahassee send you
these kind of occurrences just as they
send you out the other kind. Only last
week a daily at Key West objected to
our sending to him a true statement,
which we paid telegraphic charges on,
too, to the effect that two cabinet offi-
cers were determined to save to the
school children of this state near if not
quite, a million dollars. Truly you
daily newspaper men are hard to
Tampa Evening News, later date,
The Tallahassee TrueDemocrat vouch-
safes the enlightening information that
the "deplorable incident" in the State
Capitol which it recently mentioned,
was between "two gentlemen." The
True Democrat would have proved it-
self a better newspaper by refraining
from any allusion to the incident 'if it
was so situated or entangled that it
could not give the full particulars. The
state press has been regarding the
True Democrat as the poe independent
and fearless newspaper of Tallahassee
and has been depending upon it to tell
the truth about what goes on there,
without fear or favor. Editor Collins

Col state "machine" in an.
a to dare of Editor Crawford, of
40 Pensacola News, must have taken
the breath away from that young friend
of oura.-Tampa Tribune.
Some evidences of fact, 1. In the re-
moval of StateAttorney Perkins, through
the work and influence of James Alex-
ander, the facts that followed and the
reinstatement of Perkins, with relief
bill for his salary which was right, just,
and due to.him, but the State paid two
salaries by the machine playing in poli-
tics. It would take much space for de-
tails and they have been published.
2. The long delays, and quiet, very
secret actions in the Cooper case, on the
advice, influence and work of Lawyer
Brady, and the spending of contingent
funds-connected with that celebrated
case with its many frills, mysteries,-
etc., that go with it. It would take a
large space and Floridians have seen
much of it in print, but there is yet a
cloud over it.
3. Action in connection with the Eppes
murderers, the Doe-Mac case, and some
others of similar nature. Particulars
would take great space, Floridians are
familiar with it.
4. The veto power that has been
played for all it was worth in killing
measures, first that protected and re-
quired depositing with treasurer of I. I.
funds, and later, that played into the
hands of machine politicians in Duval
5. The number of cheap sales of I. I.
lands to or through machinists or fav-
ored ones; Queer and inconsistent action
in setting aside primary election actions,
going back on democratic precedents,
practices, etc. These would take great
space and have all been in print.
6. The peculiar action in connection
with "printing," when the Attorney
General, the Supreme Court, and the
Bar Association of Jacksonville de-
nounced it and the work was refused,
but paid for and accepted, the same
work has been done over and paid for
7. The suppression and whitewashing
of that asylum investigation, and many
funny and disgraceful affairs connected
with it. High state officers have told it
out of meeting too, that just a few more
pointed questions would have brought
out the true history of a certain $1,200
check or draft that was cashed at the
8. The usurpation of power, in setting
aside court actions.
9. Disregarding the wishes and de-
sires of a large majority of citizens and
recommendations of county democratic
executive committees in appointments,
10. Allowing, if it is so, and it has
never been denied, that in the great com-
promises, some chosen or machine man
was allowed to get in the shape of feee
enough money to take up campaign
notes to the amount of $10,000. in Jack-
These will do for the present, but
there are many things that go to prove
the existence of machine politics being
played into all kinds of public affairs,
and each of the subjects is open to just
criticism and would furnish matter for
much space in print. Almost every
question that was before the last legis-
lature had machine politics played into
it; hence the burdensome taxation, the
shortage of funds to meet the load of
appropriations, etc. Yes, the machine
gang that is in power in Florida are
playing things for all there is in it for
themselves and friends-and there is a
machine within a machine, a wheel
within a wheel, a ring within a ring,
and Floridians are groaning under it.
If any democrat in Florida still doubts
the existence of this Barr-Stockton-
chine, or desires further and more de-
tailed information concerning any of the
foregoing items, we will gladly respond
to any reasonable request for the same
to the fullest extent to which we can
spare the space for such details.
The Tallahassee True Democrat will
not come out with the facts about that
"deplorable" incident which it said oc-
curred at the Capital any further than
to declare it was a peramnal agreement
between "two gentlemen Capi-

TAXIS HAVE INCREASED.
One of the penalties of being rich and
prosperous is heavy taxation. Notwith-
standing it does seem passing strange
to us that as our own beloved Florida
grows richer and more prosperous and
valuations increase each year, the rate
of taxation should increase along with
it. A slight investigation along these
lines will convince the most skeptical
that taxes are about as high as during
reconstruction days while taxable val-
ues have increased amazingly. Where
is the remedy? We think we know it,
but we are going to permit whoever
will to answer for us.-Madison New
The remedy is easy, see that politics
is not played any longer into all public
affairs, that men who use the public
business to build up and strengthen
political machinery is defeated at the
polls. Again, these matters began to
get so under a democratic carpet-bag-
ger, who accidentally became Governor

THE TRUCK DEMOCRAT WILL DO IT.
News comes from Tallahassee that
the State Pardoning Board was again
in operation last Friday and that many
convicts were released, one of the num-
ber being Harry Bomford, of Tam a, a
plumber, who shot Capt. Park andwas
sent to prison seven months ago for a
year. It is probable that no publicity
will be made as to the others pardoned.
If the True Democrat, of Tallahassee,
really wishes to smash "the Tallahas-
see machine," the publication of the
list of pardons granted and denied
other particulars connected there k
would help materially. It is no un*q,

In the foregoing paragraph Editor
Columbus Smith reads the newspaper
men of the state a lesson that they will
do well to heed. Some of the editors
seem to think the best way to serve the
ends of their favorite political leaders is
to traduce the characters of all editors
who do not happen to play the same
favorites. Aside from being an ex-
ceediy narrow and unworthy course
this custom, if persisted in, will sooner
or later bring the entire newspaper
publishing business of the state into
disrepute. The newspaper undoubtedly
plays a lae pert in crystalizing public
opinion d if the newspaper chooses
to befoul its own nest it certainly can
do so by continually beating it into the
public ear that the men engaged in the
business are susceptible to improper
fluences and ready to do the bidding of
anyone with a fat purse. No such con-
ditions obtains and there is absolutely
no excuse for the public mind to be ed-
ucated to believe that such is the case,
but the newspapers themselves, in their
zeal to serve political favorites, seem
bent on bringing disrepute on them-
selves-not Intentionally, of course.
It is the other fellow they are after,
but when the public mind has been
trained to distrust one it is a very easy
step to distrust all.
So far as the editor of this paper is
concerned he believes his editorial

SOME FORGOTTEN BAN1 ACCOUNTS.
Funds That Have Been Lylag Un-
claimed for Hany Tres.
In the case of the Mechanics and
Traders' Bank, the doors of which
were closVd last week, there is a rec-
ord of a payment made some years
ago of a large sum. $25,000, and with
a correspon or cing record
upon the t s
knowlli depositor ni
T 6f icers who are now, in the
of the State, examining the ac-
ts and books of this bank, by
ce ran across this item, and hav-
ing asked an explanation, received one
of the strangest in the history of
banking in New York.
Some years ago the ownership of
this bank passed into new hands, and
the choice of president was fixed upon
Mr. Thalmessinger. He made micro-
scopic examination of the books, d'3-
termined to master every detail, pres-
ent antd historic, for the lbank had a
history dating back to the year 1h30.
One entry astonished him, and he
made immnediat visit to his counsel,
ex-Judge Dittenhoefer, to whom he re-
ported the circumstance.
He had discovered, he said, that
there was a credit upon th-' books of
the Mechanics and Traders' Bank of
$25,000, and that this deposit had re-
mained with the bank for nearly thir-
ty years untouched. No one in the
bank knew who the depositor was or
ev'r heard of him. Judge Dittenhoef-
er, as counsel, advised Mr. Thalmes-
singer still to carry the account, and
not concern himself about it.
Two days later the bank president
again called upon his counsel and was
plainly in much excitement. He
stated that a check for the $25,000 had
that morning been presented to the
bank, and that he declined to pay it
on the ground that he was not satis-
fied as to the identity of the maker
of the check.
The president was advised by Judge
Dittenhoefer to permit suit to be
brought against him, saying that it
would be the better part for the bank
to pay that $25,000 on Judgment than
to run the risk of paying It to the
wrong person. Suit was speedily
brought, and the following facts wer?
disclosed under oath:
A man had been arrested for mur-
der nearly forty years ago. Soon
after his arrest $25,000 was deposited
in his name, no one knows by whom.
He was convicted and sentenced to
be hanged, but the sentence was com-
muted to imprisonment for life. After
serving as a life prisoner for thirty
years in Sing Sing the man was par-
doned. As soon as he reached New
York he drew a check for this money.
The testimony was sustained in the
trial, the identity of the man was
proven, the check was paid, and after
that this man disappeared as com-
pletely as though swallowed by the
earth. The presumption was that with
the money he went far away. deter-
mined to begin a new life, although
than a man past 60 years of age.
There are some stranger incidents
even than that occasionally disclosed.
Only a day or two ago, some of the
officers of the New York Central w>re

ership of a block of stock now for

A Word About
We are compounding more and more each week. Many
people have found that here they can always get just
what the prescription calls for, just at the time we prom-

pure drugs, but we go further, and use pure drugs of the
best quality. Even the very cheapest drugs may be.the
purest of their kind-we don't use that kind. Try us.
