SHOULD KNOW CONDITION.
Drainage of Glades Makes That Sec-
*tlon Sclkly.

Claud K. Pascball, Waldo, Fla., in
8 Times-Union Forum gives some timely
facts in connection with Broward's
expensive scheme and farce:
Please allow mewhort space in your
r columns to corroborate what Mr.
1 Robert Kyle says about the draining of
t the Everglades, malaria, etc. I think
r everyone should know that they take
r an awful risk to their health to go to
. that section to live since the Ever-
glades are being drained. I went there
e last November in perfect health, didn't
I- want to feel any better than I did. I
B set in to raise a tomato crop. I had a
hard time with frost, etc. In Febru-
ary I had a chill that lasted two and
e one-half hours and a fever came on that
d stuck to me a week before I got better.
I could not eat a mouthful of anything.
As I had my crop well started I tried
to hang on and did, working under all
kinds of drawbacks, as I was weak and
sick most of the time. I had nearly
finished my crop when I again got very
Sasick and came to Waldo and went to
e bed next day and I never was so sick in
1 my life. Came near having congestion
a of the liver, caused by the condition of
e things at Ft. Lauderdale, on account
d of the drainage. The air there is simp-
ly poisonous. I would not go back
there and stay again if I had a guaran-
tee that I would clear a thousand dol-
lars per acre. 1 am still suffering with
t my system run down with malaria, but
am getting some better after a hard
s spell and doctor's bills in addition.
n Mr. Kyle is right and has told the
d plain, unvarnished truth, and I will
e say this much, if they persist in drain-
ing the Everglades It's going to be a
fearful expense of both life and money
e for doctor's bills and medicine, barring
the cost of drainage. I know some
young fellows who went there from
Georgia to truck and they were sick
o over half the time and left as soon as
d they could. My brother came down to
f see me and was there only about three
Y weeks and contracted chills. I think
condition of things are over there, for
s conditions os thing are over there for
r it is a sin for people to be fooled into
so much sickness. I am willing to
0 stand by every statement I've made,
e and I will also state that the red bugs,
t horse flies and other insects are a ter-
e ror, and what does money count
s against so much sickness and discom-
fort? If you go there to live now you
take a risk of one chance in ten to
cape with your life for the doctor
said if I had stayed a little longer I
would have died. I do not mean to say
Ft. Lauderdale was a death trap before
the drainage began, but I do say so
now. If all I've said is disbelieved,
e all I ask Is for you to go and see for
yourself, as I am not paid or even asked
e to write this. It's just a pure, humanl-
tartan interest, to save other poor fel-
lows of a hard life of sickness and risk.
I did make something on my crop.
but nothing compared to the risk it
was.
Nature has provided the stomach
with certain natural fluids known as
the digestive Juices, and it is through
these Juices that the food we eat is
acted upon in such a way as to produce
the rich, red blood and thereby makes
us strong, healthy and robust, and it is
the weakening of these digestive Juices
that destroys health. It is our own fault

GOVERNOR vRL JM ,- GILCHRIST AS PRESIDING OFFICER.


RJEPLIES TO ALUiANC


Gilchrist Always Righ Tenad Benor-
able Genatleman.
Editor of the Times-Union:--There
have been occasions in other sections
of the country where ministers of the
Gospel have combined to use the office
of their sacred calling and their
churches to enter the arena of politics,
notably during the fanatical crusade
against slavery, which resulted in a
division of some of the churches, but,
so far as I am aware, we now have
the first innovation of such methods
in the fair State of Florida, as is man-
ifested in An Address to the God-fear-
ing People of Florida, sent out by pas-
tors of certain churches Jackson-
ville, in their endeavor tor- the in-
fluence of their churches dAf&eir of-
fices, dedicated to the wors^Bf God,
to secure the election of Mr. John N.
C. Stockton as Governor of Florida. Is
this because his opponent Is a man of
such corrupt and moral life as to call
forth the condemnation of the Christian
people? It would seem not, as they say.
"We do not wish to say one word
against the character of their candi-
Permit me in this connection to say
that I have known Gen. Gilchrist inti-
mately for approximately twenty years;
he was on my military staff as gov-
ernor; he was with me on various so-
cial occasions when temptations to ex-
cessive drinking were not lacking, yet
I never saw, knew or heard of Gen. Gil-
christ ever having been intemperate
in any sense of the word. He has al-
ways conducted himself as an honor-
able, high-toned gentleman and has al-
ways been a welcomed guest in my
household.
More than a year ago, Gen. Gilchrist,
who had been repeatedly intrusted with
public office by the people of his county
who knew him best, announced his can-
didacy for governor. His record on the
saloon question was that under the con-
stitutional provision of local option in
his county, he voted against the sale
of liquor. The liquor question was
not injected Into the campaign until
Mr. Stockton afterwards came into the
race and declared for State prohibi-
tion. Was that from honest conviction?
Or was it because he thought it the
popular side? Those who have known
Mr. Stockton for many years longer
than the clerical alliance are best able
to reach a conclusion as to this. Gen.
qilchrist declared his adherence to the
Democratic doctrine of local option as
provided by the constitution, the fram-
ers of which included the ablest and
most highly honored men in the State.
Samuel Pasco. president, afterwards
United States Senator William A.
Blount, A. E. Maxwell, member of
congress. Confederate senator and
chief Justice of the supreme court; E.
M. Randall, chief justice of the supreme
court; W. H. Milton, son of Governor
Milton1 and father of the present Sena-
tor; L. W. Bethel, lleutenani governor;
R. F. Taylor, chief justice. and W. A.
Hocker, Justice of the supreme court;
John D. Broome, James F. McClellan
and John Malone, circuit judges; R. C.
Parkhill, John Westcott. A. L. Mc-
Caskill, John C. Richard, John B. John-
son, and William T. Weeks, and other
able and honored citizens of the State,
most of them gallant Confederate sold-
iers. If Gen. GlOtilchrist is to be con-
demned for his adherence to the con-
stitution, condemn the men who framed
it. many of whom fill honored graves
and have left honored names. Are we
to return in analogy to the appeal of
a "higher law" and the denunciation of
the constitution of the United States
as "a league with death and a cove-
nant of slavery?"
But. ay the cleric alliance, "Never
before in the history of Florida have
the representatives of the saloon Inter-
ests so openly defied the moral elements
of society and so boldly organized to
emiss control of the government of the
State and so many of the *ountis."
The limits of this article will not per
mit me to quote at length their "ad-
dress." Suffice to say they go em to ring
the changes on the support of Gon. Gil-
christ by the saloon Interests. They
appeal to the people to assist in pro '
testing our State from the clutches of
the saloon keepers.
They sayM "The Governor of Florida
should not be an ungrateful man" *
The candidate supported by the sa-
loon interests will owe hie section to
those who elect him, and must be grate-
ml to them." Without saying so in
words, the only logical deduction from
he above remarkable code ofat morals
which the clerical alliance easuclate

Resolutlies from House Journals oef
1J05 Very Complmentary.
The following documentary evidence
from the journals of the House of Rep-
resentatives, session 1905, fully refutes
the charTge sent out from Tallahassee
by Mr. L'Eg.le, that Hon. Albert W.
Gllchrist was an undignified presiding
officer:
HousE RESOLtfUTN No. 101
RESOLVED by the House of Repre-
sentatives, That the thanks of this.
body are hereby tendered to Hon. Al-
bert W. Gilchrist for the at ie, dignified
and impartial manner in which he has
presided over its deliberations, and also
to the Chief Clerk and other attaches
for the satisfactory manner in which
they have discharged the various duties
assigned them.
Mr. Dorman moved the adoption of
the resolution.
Which was unanimously agreed to.
The tobacco farmers along the G. F.
& A., from Bainbridge to Tallahassee
are now more interested in taking care
of their fine crop than they are in any
kind of politics. By the way, that
stretch of country is one of the rishest,
agriculturally speaking, in the world.--
Bainbridge Searchlight. We will take
time to go out and vote for Gilchrist
and Fletcher, over on the Florida side,
however, on the 16th, because the gen-
eral best interest of the. whole State
needs it and demands it. The machine
politics and politicians have piled up
tax burdens until the people fee the
great necessity of "chopping them out."
Their days of abuse in Florida is near
an end.


large vote of Gen. Gilchrist is due prin-
cipally to the Influence of the saloon
interests. Of the dry counties Gilchrist
carried 18 and Stockton 17. Was the sa-
loon interest sufficient to carry the
the counties for Gilchrist in which
there were no saloons? Stockton car-
ried three of the nine wet counties.
How do they account for that on the
saloon Influence theory? While Gil-
christ led Stockton in Monroe, a wet
county, he got only 217 votes as against
960 cast for the two prohibition can-
didates.
I do not know how many saloon keep-
ers there are in the State, I believe 500
is a full estimate. Many of the saloon
keepers are men of but little influence.
Is it to that small class that Gen.
Gilchrist owes his great vote 23,248?
Nearly one-half of the entire primary
vote. Such a claim by the clerical al-
liance is not only absurd but an Inaolt
to the intelligence and honesty of the
Democrats of the State, and shows
their utter Ignorance of the political
situation into which they have so reck-
lessly thrust themselves.
One of this clerical alliance. Rev. J.
W. Bigham, who, I am informed, is a
recent importation from Kentucky, not
satisfied with Joining his brethren in
their written appeal to the people, has
seen fit to take the stump for his can-
didate, Mr. Stockton, and is reported
to have said in reference to Duval
county, "Gen. Gilchrist carried that
county by the vote of the saloon bums,
those who lapped the filth from the
gutter, and by grafters." In which of
these classes does he place the large
number of Christian gentlemen of his
own congregation and of the congrega-
tion of his other brother pastors, who
voted for Gen. Gilchrist.
In the first primary of 1904,when Mr.
Stockton ran against Senator Talia-
ferro for the United States senate, Tal-
lalefro received In Duval county 1,106
more votes than Stockton. There was
no suggestion of a liquor question In
that campaign, and if there had been
there was no reason why Senator Talia-
ferroqwho for half a century had never
dranm liquor, should have commanded
the support of the liquor element. The
proportionate vote of Gilchrist as
against Stockton In this county at the
last primary was but little In excess of
that as stated in 1904. Why then, is
this vote the result of saloon influence?
Judging by the past, It Is not more reas-
onably accounted for by the estimate of
Mr. Stockton by the people who knew
him best, have known him for years,
and have not forgotten among other
things his political record in leading in-
lependent movements against the nomi-
nees of the Democratic party ,in one of
which he secured his election to the
legislature ?
The clerical alliance protest that
-any of them are neither politicians
nor partisans. By what right then do
they Inject themselves into the partisan
primary to control a Democratic nomi-
nation? They declare for Stockton, a
prohibitionist Would It not be well
for them and their candidate, who ap-
pear to be so alarmed that the saloon
nalence will Nise control of the State

BROWARD'S "FACTS
ABSOLUTE" DISPROVED


His Latest Pamphlet One a i Inaccn.
racy.
The chief characteristic of Governor
Broward's latest pamphlet entitled
"Absolute Facts Regarding Duncan U.
Fletcher," is the absence of fact, "ab-
solute" or otherwise. His restatement
I of the Fernandina Board of Trade mat-
ter is nearly as far from truth as the
first statement, and in proof of what I
say I insert a letter from the Chairman
of the State Executive Democratic
Committee, Hon. Arthur T. Williams,
who does not speak from hearsay as
does my opponent, but from personal
knowledge:
Arthur T. Williams, Real Estate Bro-
ker, 108 Main St., Room 3, Jackson-
ville, Fla.
May 1st, 1908.
Hon. Duncan U. Fletcher, City:
Dear Sir-Referring to your request
that I give you the facts as I remember
them in relation to your appearance be-
fore the Railroad Commission at the
hearing on the question of adjustment
of phosphate rates between Fernandina.
and Savannah, I would say : My reeol-
lection is that the Fernandina Board of
Trade contended that phosphate rates
from the mines to Fernandina as com-
pared with the rates from the mines to
Savannah were unjust and discriminated
Zaainst Fernandina. The Fernandina
Board of Trade requested the co-opera-
tion of the Jacksonville Board of Trade
in an effort to have an equitable adjust-
ment of these rates, and at the hearing
in Talahassee, you appeared with
President Garner, of the Jacksonville
Board of ?Tade, and in the statement
you made before the Commission you
stated that you appeared in the interest
of the city of Jacksonville in the mat-
ter. I did not understand that you
were opposed to the reduction in phoo-
phste rates, and I do not see how the
report that you appeared for the rail-
roads could have originated, because
there wa certainly nothing that you
said or that took place at the hearmg
that would have in the most remote de-
gree, indicated that you appeared in be-
half of the railroads.
Yours very truly,
ARWHUR T. WILLIAMS.
NO PROMIB8S MADE OR A8KXD FOR.
Under the head of "Violated Prom-
ise" Govdnor Broward states that he
did not suanrt me for Chairman of the
State Co ttee until I had "most
positively red a number of gentlk-
men" cr3 things. This is wholly
untrue, sad here again he speaks from
what some ~ told him, not from per-
sonal knowledge, otherwise he would
not have made such a statement The
facts a that some friends urged me
to stead lf the Chairmanship of the
ComN ~e I did not favor the idea
and ws more than indifferent. Upon
bte further urged, I stated that I
tsm-bt N. B. Broward, who has been
d Zd the nominee for Governor,
eI to name the Chairman. These
stated that he wanted me, and
I suggested that he be called into con-
ference and express his views. This
was done and he came into th eauses,
and stated that he preferred me for
Chairman. I then consented to run. I
ade no promise or anurance to an
oa. No member had the insolence to
ask to promise such aboard things as
Govrnor Broward mentions. It wouldM
have been an insult which I would have
ranted on the spot. The night before
the Committee met some of the Gover-
arnor's close friends and supporters be-
to "knife" me secretly. I found
m out and immediately got them and
ot together and stated what I had
dlyre. I told them I would not
li~t to such treatment, and would
wiiM w from the race and that they
ouM decide on another man. They
apo and explained and urged me
to sa inthe race. I am not surpried
that mhrepreentation has been added
to trmbery.

A Word About

Prescriptions


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-
isa, and that the price is reasonable. All drggists use
pure drugs, but we go further, and use pure drugs of the
beat quality. Even the very cheapest drugs may be:the
purestlof their kind-we don't use that kind. Try us.

'The Key West Citizen puts it to Na

who cannot carry his own county and his
own precinct in a State election will
bear watching. His neighbors gener-
ally know him better than any one
else." _____
General Gilchrist is almost univenalfl
admitted to be as confiding as a woman
and as guileless as a child. And now
the Tallahassee Sun is calling him a
"demagogue" the whole manner of his
living and the trend of his life gives
the charge a flat denial.-Oeala Banner.
Mr. R. A. Gray, now Secretary of
the Live Oak Publishing Co., was in the

has many warm friends in this city.
Hon. A. C. Blount, Jr.. is on the bal-
lot again as a *endidate for delegate
from the third congressional district to
the Denver convention. A vote for him,
and fpr A. C. Clewes, will be to send
two more good business and reprsent-
ative men on the Florida delegation.
This newspaper dislikes to diMr with
the ministers of his own and other

voting for or advocating the election of
such rotten demagogues as Johanie N.

attempting to push down our woats.
Florida's Governor, candidate for
United States Senator, outwardly de-

Union and Taliaferro, and enterftinto
a combine with them in an effort to be
elected, is RICH and RACY, and if the
the people get on to him in time, Tues-
day's election will be a landslide fr

principles.
For th principle and right there is'
Involved in it, is the sensible and sane
reasons why most church and temper-
anee people will not support the vile
demegogues and scheming political trick-

they will vote for Gilchrist and FletcW

preachers in Florida could not induce
we Floridians, who know them just as
they are, to vote for either of them for

.. Jacksonville. Fla., June 4, 1908.-
Rev. Dr. W. E Bogga, Jacksonville,
Fla.: My Dear br. Boggs-The Ocala
Star of June 3. in reporting an address
delivered by Rev. J. W. Bigham, in the
interest of Mr. John N. C. Stockton.
has the following:
"He detailed how the Jacksonville
Ministers' Union got I)ossession of the
fact that large sums of money were
being sent into the State to elect Gil-
christ. Said the sum up to a few
weeks ago was $360,000; that Rev. Dr.
Boggs, whose character was unim-
peachable, unearthed this story. It
was this fact that made the ministers
of the Gospel in Jacksonville band to-
gether and go forth to battle for tem.
perance in this campaign."
As you kabr, I am In charge of
General Gilchrist's Jacksonville head-
quarters.. This is only one of many
uatruthful statements which Mr. Big-
ham has made in his zealous work for
Mr. Stockton. Since he has used your
name. I would like to know whether
or not you can give me your author I'
for the knowledge Mr. Bigham claim I
you possess as to this $360,000.
I am writing you and reserving a
copy for publication. This letter and
your reply will be published to the
voters throughout the State.
Thanking you in advance for the
favor, I have the honor to remain,
Very truly yours,

Mr. J. 0. LaFontisee, Gen. Gilchrist's

Fontisee-Returning to my home R
somewhat later than usual, I find your
favor of even date lying on my desk. t
In this note. after quoting words from c
the Ocala Star, you proceed in this
fashion: "As you know, I am in '
charge of General Gilchrist's head- t
quarters in Jacksonville." Now, my c
friend, I must differ from you as to "
this precise point, begging your par- h
don. I did not know that you were In P
any such place at all, or engaged in t.
any such business whatever, until you 'i
were good enough to inform me as to Il
the facts in this letter now lying be- t
fore me. And as a sincere well-wisher o
of yours. I am really sorry to learn ti
that you are there, and doing, as you i
say. for, unless I am greatly mistaken, h
by the time that the. good people of m
Florida have rendered their decision n
on that very corruption fund and the w
free distribution of whisky for the
purpose of turning votes to General c8
Gilchrist. both you and your friend, n(
the General, will be more In need of m
hindquarters than of headquarters. and tm
the waking up to this' tact will proba- at
bly make both of you sadder as well cr
as wiser men. th
But you continue your comments on '
the aftnation, as it has been given you t
(I do not venture to say by whom) to ea
see it, in such unparliamentary words (a
as these. "This is only one of many ev
untruthful statements Mr. Bigham has in
made." Now. Mr. Lafontisee. those
wicked fellows, the lawyers, have a re
saying which runsth somewhat in mo
this fashion: "Whes an attorney loe- of

You ask me to oblige you by giv- for

are, when properly at yourself, a Ch

Now I am sorry that in the haste vot
of our parting I failed to take a copy of
of that paper. It was very bad in me f
to fall in this respect, no doubt; but
then. you see, I had no idea that you rat
would be so eager to learn about that In

as if I had added up the columns of
futures, and had thus ascertained the
aum total; I knew the gentleman, you
me, Friend LaFontisee, and I trusted
him exactly as every honest and sen-
sible person in Jacksonville does.
You will ovserve, Mr. LaFontisee,
that our friend said nothing whatever
about General Gilchrist personally.
Nor did anybody else speak of him
Just then. Indeed. I do not now recall
any mention of him in our conversa-
tion. But anybody "with half an eye"
could see how this bribery fund was
related to him. And when I gave my
paper to Mr Bigham, I saw the logical
and necessary connection between him
and it, because I had then in my
pocket a copy of a letter from a cer-
ain liquor house In Jacksonville to a
certain citizen of Macclenny, Fla. I
had seen the original of this letter,
and of my own knowledge Identified
he correctness of the copy now lying I
>n my table. It Informed this man in
lacclenny that a gallon of whisky
ad been shipped to him. "express
repaid." and It requested him to use
his whisky to help in the election of I
General Gilchrist." That was enough. o
t made little difference to me after
hat. how many thousands or hundreds t
f thousands of bribery and corrup- I
on money had been sent Into Flor- t
Ia. My honored friend might possibly c
ave been mistaken as to the sum F
mentioned by him; yes, possibly, but I,
ot probably; the number of dollars c
'as a minor question then.
"But you have failed to connect our v
indidate with that whisky, have you i
ot? Did he know it was sent to the o
>an in Macclenny? Let us see. The a
matter has been for days bruited S

Rev. Wm. E. Boggs, No. 325 Newnan
Street, Jacksonville, Fla.: My Dear
Sir-I beg to acknowledge receipt of
your esteemed favor of the 4th In an-
swer to my letter of Inquiry to you
of the same date asking your source
of Information for the statement made
hv the Rev. J. W. Blgham as to the
alleged $360.000 sent Into the State to
elect Gilchrist. he having given you
as his authority for the same. I ad-
vised you at the time that the corre-
spondence was Intended for publica-
tion and your answer admits two
things.
1st. That von did give Mr. Bigham
he information.
2nd. That you had nothing more to
base it on than the hearsay statement
,f Mr .
Now, my dear sir,. you take umbrage
hat I denounced those statements as
untrue, yet your only justification is
hat Mr. --- told you so In a casual
conversation: yet, you gave out such
t statement as an actual fact. and If
Mr. Bigham Is correct, this gossip
caused fourteen ministers to sign and
int out a statement to that effect.
rhich has not only been published in
ne newspapers but circulated freely
n printed form throughout the State,
nd '-.ed and Is still being used by
dr. Bigham in political speeches In '
he different counties in behalf of Mr. 1
tockton and against Gen. Gilchrist. I 1

Isl regard for the sacredness of your

Tther are or a ministerial cloak gave 0
cense to slander, or to blacken the
baracter of the humblest eftizsen. The
atement made by you In your letter, 4
iat you had seen no denial by Gen- I
al OGTchrist or myself, seems plead- *
r now In Justification or excuse, but t
me can hardly be called upon to deny a
charge before it ts made. Mr. Bth-
Lm's speech was made on the third. N

mpaign motto in the beginning: p

ask which is woree, the corruption

ugatfom of false statements. The

I reiterate again that the statement m

Gov. Fleming, in his able letter, ha
called attention to the class of me
who framed our present constitution
omitting, however, the name of Jame
G. Speer, a life-long Christian ani
temperance advocate, who, if I remern
ber correctly, was chairman of the cofn
mittee on temperance and wrote th
local option law. Those who are strii
ing to make this a moral issue quot
from W. J. Bryan, the great Christ
lan temperance leader, but are careful
not to mention that he stumped hi
own State for local option against
State prohibition, claiming that loca
option, was Democradc, while Stat
prohibition was not.
These are the people, so tsisten
that none but Bryaw men be sent tU
the Denver convention, yet when Gil
christ. myself and other Chrlstian mes
believe as he does and have the cour
age to say so, we are called enemies tc
morality and are aligned with the ad
vocates of intemperance.
Be not deceived by such arguments,
This is purely and simply a Democratic
primary for nominating a governor and
either officers. We know tib men rnar
ling for governor. Gilchrfst, years
go, stood for prohibition in his own
county and helped carry DeSBto dry.
Mr. Ofilchrist announced his candidacy
n April 1905, during the session of
he legislature, and has quitMlyand in
dignified way sought the office ever
since, and no tidal wave of prohibition
as caused him to lose that poise and
balance that proclaims his fitness to
ake us a safe and sane governor,
uallfled to deal justly with all classes
nd conditions. Any man with Intel-
genee enough to mark a ballot should
understand that the legislature alone
an send down this amendment to be
oted on.
Separated from thit qsetelf, which
as no place in the election, Mr. Ofl.
hrist's majority will be overwhelm-
ag. I trust it will be large enough
s it is. I wish in conclusion to ask
II who have not, to read Gov. Flemw-

As a supporter in the sate primary

would not be amiss to say a few
words why I shall support Hon. Al*-

ne Issue of State prohibition, Mr.

TO THE PEOPLE OF FLORIDA.
I have already, through the press of
the State, expressed my high appre-
ieation for the magnificent vote you
gave me in the last primary. I would
be untrue to myself if I fall to use
every honorable effort to carry out
your wishes In the endeavor to secure
a nomination in the coming Democratic
primary which occurs June 16th.
In my campaign I have not stooped
to the level of soliciting votes at the
expense of the personal character and
reimtation of my opponents. I have
conducted this campaign with a view
of meeting issues fairly and squarely
and in the Interest of ,enabling me.
without hindrance, to be the Governor.
if elected, of all the people, regardless
of "cliques," "interests" or "class."
I respect the honest differences of
opinion, and the personal preferences
of those who saw fit to vote against me
in the first primary. To even those
who have sought to drag my good name
in the mire and filth, which has char-
acterlsed this campaign lately, I have
only the kindliest feeling. Differences
of opinion will prevail Just so long as
our Democratic form of government
will endure. And no man, whether he
aspires to the office of constable, judge
or governor, has a right to assail or
besmirch the character of those who
differ from him.
I hbpe to be the next Governor of
Florida, and should this honor fall to
me, and I believe it will, I will be
Governor for all the people, and not
a few. I make this declaration be-
cause I am living up to what I said in
my first address to the people of Flor-
ida.
I have repeatedly stated that I would
appreciate the vote of the corporation.
ists, Ahe anti-rorporatloniste,- probli
bitionists, anti-prohibitionists, liquor
men and anti-liquor men, Christians,
Jews, gentiles, publicans and sinners,
and even the pharisees. Mr. Stockton
stated before the first primary that he
did not want the vote of a single liquor
man, or corporation man, or poker
player.
When I engaged Mr. J. 0. LaFon-
tisee to manage my Jacksonville head-
quarters I told him positively not to
send whisky and cigars, no matter how
urgent the call for them was. That he
has followed my instructions I know
from careful inquiry in Jacksonville,
and from copies of letters he has sent
out in answer to those who have called
for whisky.
My opponent, Mr. J. N. C. Stockton,
is circulating throughout the State a
copy of the following letter:
"Mr. D. I. Thrift,
Macclenny, Florida:
Dear Sir:-
We have sent you by express, charges
prepaid, one gallon whisky. Use to best
advantage, and elect Albert W. Gil-
christ for Governor.
Yours trutly,
The G. Muller Co.,
Per P."
In the circular containing this let-
ter appears the following note:
"The above Is an exact reproduction
of one and a sample of hundreds of
other letters accompanying shipments
of whisky Into dry counties In the In-
terest of Mr. Gilchrist for Goveroor."
The last quotation Is unsigad.
If those who are interested will write
to anyone of the registered voters of
Punts Gorda, DeSoto County, Fla.,
they will ascertain the work I did in
behalf of prohibition in that oouaty.
Punta Gorda polled the biggest vteo la
favor of prohibition of any preetdmt it
that county at the time DeSoto was vet-
ed dry. Iwasa one of those who used
their utmost endeavor to make Deote
county dry at that time.
This letter of the 0. Muller Compey
was eut out to accompany a jug of
whisky asked for by a brother of a
man tn Baker county who was runnlag
fbr the olee of sheriff. I knew noth-
inag of it However, I am free to admit
that the letter was written by one of
may ardent supporters.
I am not responsible for the acts of
any of the 23,248 Democratic voters of
Florida who supported me.
In conclusion, I hope that Mr. Stock-
ton will not charge anyone of his 0O,-
Ks supporters In this State infidelity
and mistake for any action which thee
may take in his behalf. I also trust
that the people of Florida will not
charge to Mr. Stockton any act on their
part calculated to be of injury to him.
unales Mr. Stockton is cognizant of tlhe
fact.
Very truly yours,
i ALBERT W. GILCHRISTr.

It has been charged and is not denied that the Political Heelers who are employed by the East Coast Rail-
road are now working for Broward.
If this is true, and we have very good evidence that it is true, it means that a Political Deal has been
made between Broward and the East Coast Railroad.
.. Let the.people of Florida think of that. Broward in a Combine with the East Coast Railroad to defeat
Fletcher for the Senate.
Broward who has devoted a third of his life to hateing the East Coast Railroad finds it to his political
advantage to trade with them and does so.
This'points to Fletcher as being the man the people can trust-the man who will go into office with-
out obligation. He has never asked the people of the State for office before, but he has given signal example of
his worth, bie.minent fitness and his fidelity to every trust reposed in him. He has been a public servant from
a sense of public duty and has not profited thereby. Broward has been a political trickster aid has lived by it.
I.t the people be aroused to a sense of their public duty and smite this combine at the ballot box Tuesday.
THE i HKlKE EX-GOVERNORS of Florida, BLOXHAM, FLEMING and JENNINGS, Support FLETCHER.
The following prominent gentlemen endorse and support Hon. Duncan U. Fletcher.
T. A. Jennings, Dr. S. R. Mallory, Judge L. J. Reeves, Samuel Pasco Jr., J. M. Muldon, of Pensacola, Benj.
S. Liddon, W. H. Ellis, Judge White, George P. Raney, Will. H Price, Nat. R. Walker, Ex-senator Saml. Pasco,

Yet all the while, Governor Broward

any capacity." But he cannot deny
that since he has been Governor he

Majority of the voters of Florida ex-
I dk eole for some man for the

think of the naval stores mer For years
the American Naval Store Company
(or Its predessorso, the Shotter Cornm-
pany and associates) has manipulated
Sthe market, oppressed producers and
retrained trade, but not until the last
charge in the Senatorial fight did it
occur to the Governor-desperate &
he is In his quest for votes---to even
intimate that this sdell combine
should be curtailed or itself restrained.
In the first primary, I repeat. it did
not occur to him.
The fact is, the judiciary department
of the United States Government seem
to be looking after this "combine"
just at present with a good deal of
arnestness, and Mr. Broward's momen-
tary interest is, after all, of little
concern, one way or the other.
Do you know. Mr. Editor, people of
cool, ealeulatiUn unbiased judgment
take the "friendly Interest" of profes-
sional offce-seekers with a grain of
salt anyway.
Especially is this applicable to any
Statements made by Governor Broward,
for he Is known from Pensacola to
Miami as a political trader and manipu-
lator of the first water. Naval stores
men are aware of this; most of them
know Governor Broward; most of them
know something of the political debts
he has made and paid; most of them
know something of the sincerity (?)
of his promises; most of them are too
wie to be fooled by this eleventh-hour
"interest," that now by strange coin-
eldesce comes at a time when every
vote counts.

FLETCHER


and FREEDOM.


THE PEOPLE WILL SMASH THE STATE MACHINE.


FLETCHER MEN STANDS OLID

BROWARD'S CAMPAIGN FUND.
I have not boasted of my riches. I have none to boast of. I have
told the whole truth-that I was not bound or obligated to any cor-
porate interest, National Bank or Railroad Com for any of the
expenses of my campaign. Governor Brow x makes an effort to
curry favor and make political capital by alluding to his poverty or
lack of wealth. Yet at Tampa he said that he had Eighty Thousand
Dollars worth of property. It is one thing to be poor and quite an-
other thing to use the fact for political effect. It is one thing to have
limited means, and another thing to be free from penonal and politi-
cal obligations-especially to National Banks and National Bankers-
whose mterest would be effected by Currency Legislation by Congress.
It is one thing to lack means-it is another thing to use the appoint-
ing power of the Governor to reward friends, and to take care of
those to whom you are under obligations of a political or a financial
nature.
BROWARD MACHINE--HOW IT WORKS.
Governor Broward has been nearly to years in office building up state-wide
political machine. The power of appointment vested in him for public intemets solely
as been used for his own political advantage. As a result. witness the fact that his
appointees, from United States Senator to Inspeetor of ertliser, are only ad active-
ly electioneering for him in almost every county in the State. Amon hi ofice hold-
ing supported are four convict inspectors. a food sad drug inspector, an inspector of
feed stuffs and fertilizers, the state printer, numbers of naval stores inspetors, the
supervising inspector of naval stores, the chairman and a member of the State Board of
Cont numerous dredging employees and wood comtbetors, and an army of minor
State er and employee. There is even a State Detedtiv (for whose appolatanent
there is no legal authority), who is traveling over thi Stwte etctioneerln for Broward.
Tibesloffcers and employees are receiving salaries arain not less than Fifteen
Hundred Dollars a year each and their expene. TiM miStutton of Florida prohibit
the Gvernor from being a candidate to succeed hiself. This was to prevent Just
such machine politics. But the Governor is using the ame methods to get himself
elected United State Senatore.
WHAT BROWARD WANTS.
After all, it seems to many people that what Governor Broward
wants is not the welfare of the State, but office for himself; not the
good of the "great-hearted" people, but political power and influence
for himself, and the ability to seize the highest offices of the State for his
friends and supporters. Will the Democrats of the State of Fla. stand
for these methods ? Is it possible to secure a fair expression of par-
ty will, if such a system of machine politics is allowed to be fastened
upon the State. It is now for the Democrats of Florida to decide
