New York.-Dr. Frederick Starr, of
the University of Chicago. repeated at
the dinner of the New York Scholmaua-

made a few days ago that former
President Roosevelt would not survive
the malarial elimato of the country
through which he purpose to travel on
his African trip. Dr. Starr aid in

ed by long redone in the African eli-
mate the trip which the former Presi-

years, with no experience in the tropics,
it is litUle short of suicide, I cuanot
understand why his advisors have al-
lowed him to pt on with t these plans.
"One of the trips which I made
across Africa was over a ioute corre-
sponding closely to that of the Presi-
dent But I was thoroughly acclma-
ted. I had spent nearly a dsen yeara
in the country and was still a young
man. I euld not witatuad the dan
germ of it now.
"Rooevelt will never survive the fe-
vers which are bound toafltet him if he
reahebs the interior. The country's
only hope ot seelag him again is that he
may bea stricken before he reaches the
interior. A comparative light touch of
i hom light tropical fveres might lay
b-l up for aseverJ months and perbap
induce hi to abandoned ha plan for

elected mramber of the house of rewe-.

mons' two y 1' service ax-ofiio
secretary or the Board of PardoM hba
made hia tho ly conversat with
the crudities of pre t pardoning
statem a it obtat in Florda and gives
him the right to speak with authority
upon the nacesity of more up-to-date
legislation upon this important detail of
executive duty.
Mr. Simmonsawas born in the year
1873 in Coffee Ala., but has lived in
Florida since 1894 He was two years
private secretary to Governor Broward,
but on the incoming of the present ad-
ministratio- he went I a k to the prac-
tice of law. As a lawyt r, he is posiso-
ad of clear judgment and a keen insight,
a quickness to see an grasp the logical
conclusion and an ability to present it in
a ready and convincing flow of language;
qualities which will undoubtedly obtain
for him an eminent place for him among
his colleagues.
The salient features embodied in the
bill as prepared by Mr Simmons are as
Under the present law governing ap-
plications for pardon the only previous
notice required is ten days publicity ita
the county where the applicant was con
victed. In fully ninety per cent of the
cases this method of publication gives
no notice to any member of the pardon-
ing board. Many hundreds of appli-
c ints each year apply for pardon
each one having a constitu
tionul right to have his case carefully
considered. Trne majority of cases are
presented personally by attorneys. The
members of the pardoning board pro-
vided by the constitution are adminis-
trative officers of the executive depart-
ment, whose time is fully occupied with
the manifold duties of their respective
offices so Ihat it has been found im-
practicable to hold more than one meet
ing each month, and it bas been the
rule rather than the exception that as
many as thirty or forty cases have been
presented at each meeting. As a re-
sult of these conditions, the application
and consideration of each case as wholly
ex-parto, and. therefore, more or less
a question of gumwork.
Then, too. in many cases, probably in
the majority, the evidence upon which
the applicants were convicted has not
been preserved and the judge and pros-
ecuting attorney have informed the at-
torneys fur applicants that they have
forgotten the substance of it This
makes it necet ary to substitute the
testimony as it Is remembered by Asom
other person, and it is no reflection
upon wither the applicant or his attorney
that the statement thus procured migeit
be most favorable to the applicant.
The propued bill provides for the ap-
pointment of aon attorney to whom
any person intending to make applica-
ion for parde o si hallgive at at thirty
days notice of such intention; where-
upon it shall become the duty of the
paridoa attn t o ImUtute a thorough

In various newspapers throughout the
State matters pertainlag to Florlds's
two highest titattions f Wlarminga
have recently been diesesed sad co.-
parisons drawn re'stive to their gro wth
sad advancement.
As in well known, under the proves
lons of the "Bucksma Bill," by which
the "co-ed" feature of the State Col-
lege was abolished, the University for
men and the Collep for women were
placed practically upon the same basis.
Each had Its own peculiar advantages.
each its individual diffeulties Only in
the matter of curricula did they meet
upon common ground. Here they
started even, pupils from the tnth and
eleventh grades being admitted alike to
both inmtitutions, ad allowed to enter
the sub-freshman and the freshman
classes, respectively.
Now, however, it would appear that,
notwithstanding their even start, the
University is being left behind in the
race. Its growth and development, it
as claimed, has not kept pace with that
of the College. and the people are be-
ginning to ask why ? Statistics show
that each year brings to the College an
increase in number and quality of stud
ents ; but the University a decrease. in
numbers at least. In the College the
number enrolled at the end of the ses.
sion is greater than at the beginiog,
in the University there is always fall
ing off. In the College every depart-
ment has its quota of students and ev-
ery professor's time is fully occupied
with his legitimate work ; in the Uni.
versity three professors are perforce
idle at the present time because, in the
department of education to which thea
educators are assigned, not a single
student is enrolled, and in the otheo de-
partments of civil and electrical engi-
neering, and of secondary education,
there are but few young men in attend-
According to the papers above men-
tioned but one logical deduction can be
drawn from the foregoing facts, and
that is that the progress of the College
and the decadence of the University are
due to their respective presidents. Dr.
Murphree, of the College, has demon-
strated the executive ability, the per-
sonal magnetism, the tact and sympa-
thy lacking in Dr. Sledd, of the Univer-
sity. The only remedy to be found lies
in the resignation of Dr. Sledd and the
appointment of a man more suited to
the character of the work required of
the heat of an institution struggling
against all the odds of immaturity.
That Dr. Sledd is an able man, a fin-
ished scholar and an earnest Christian
gentleman no one who knows him will
attempt to deny, but as the president
of the University he seems a misfit.
The Penaacola Evening News goes so
far as to advocate the transfer of Dr.
Murphree to the University. It argues
that the same qualities that have
broughtpuccess to the College would
do like service for the University, and,
doubtless, in this inference the News is
perfectly correct; but The True Demo-
crat falls to aee why the future wel-
fare of the' relege should be jeopard-
lied In order Uthat the University should
be built up. Thre is plenty of good
timber elewhre, let the Boards of
Education and Coantrel, to whom alone
this matter belongs, look for the man
beet suited for this emergeasey. and as-
ate him. The President of the State's
University should be choee with digni-
fied deliberation and not be made the
candidate of any faction or section.

Governor Gilchrlst was tendered a
possum supper at the Leon Hotel,
Tallahasee, and those present say that
the affair was one of the pleasant
events of the winter. The Times fteels

"Surgeon-Genral Lawson says that
the climate of Florida is remarkably

The Pensacola News is urging the
election of Or. Murphree, President of
the State College for Women at Talla-
insgee, to the Presideney of the State
University. Dr. Murphree has demon-
strated his ability to do things, and
would receive a hearty welcome by our
people. From whatwe know, however,
the people of Tallahasee would ptrenu-
onely object to giving him up.--Gainee-
ville Sun.
Yes. Tallabasee protests most stren-
uously against the removal of Dr. Mur-
phre. The proper solution of the mat-
tr is to bring the University to Talla-
bassee and let him manage both Onsti-
tuions. The two schools could be made
much greater successes if they were
located in the same city and directed
by this successful educator.
We would welcome the boys most
The True Democrat feels that Talla-
hassei could illy spare Dr. Murphree,
and fears that this continual agitation
about appointing him president of the
State University may lose him to us,
but we cannot refrain from copying the
following nice notice of him from the
Sanford Herald:
The Pensacola News, in a strong edi-
torial asks that Prof. A A. Murphree
be appointed president of the Universi-
ty of Florida As president of the Flor-
ida Female College Dr. Murphree made
an enviable record and we fully concur
with the News in the strong endorse
ment of Dr. Murphree. The Boaid of
Control should appoint him as the head
of the University of Florida, an insti-
tution that has needed him from its
very inception and needs him now more
than ever. Aside from being the fore-
most educator in the State, Prof. Mur-
phree is a good orgniser and promo-
toer, and will rapidly increase the stu-
dent body of the University.
The piggishness of human nature has
just received an illustration in New
York, Mrs Russell Sage desired to
exercise some practical philanthropy,
so she bought some cheap abandoned
farm land on Long Island, with the pur-
pose in view of building on it some ton-
ements devoted to the uses of people
afflicted with tuberculosis. About the
time her plans became known some
friends wished to join in the enterprise,
buy double the quantity of land and
make the undertaking twice as lar"g.
When they came to price the land ad-
joining the worthless acre Mrs. Sags
had quietly secured they found that the
price had suddenly jumped a thousands
dollars per acre. The friends backed
out, the original promoter is consider-
lug throwing the whole thing up, and
there you are.
