The loca on of the seat of gov-
ernment is matter of the greatest
importaLce to the people of every
State. In tach of the States this
question hb been deliberately settled
after a ful consideration of all the
conditions hat surround such insti-
tutions. cIie selection of a State
Capital sh 4ld never be made hastily
or witho4 intelligent examination
into the ef ct' likely to be produced
upon matt s of public interest and
concern b the environment of each
locality o ring. The experience of
all the St es has taught the valuable
lesson tha Capitals should not be lo-
cated in t chief commercial cities or
in cities ulon the seaboard. For in-
stance, thl Capital of New York is in
Albany, q( Pennsylvania in Harris-
burg, of laryland wi Annapolis, of
Louisian in Baton Rouge, of Texas
in Austin of California in Sacramen-
to, all w nparatively small towns,
either inl nd or unimportant as marts
of marine commerce. Inland towns
are well nown to be healthier and
less liable to epidemics and invasions
by a pu ic enemy in time of war
than sea rt towers. Large commer-
cial citi are notoriously more conve.
nient foi the working of corrupt lob-
bies and Ilesigning influences than are
quiet an smaller towns. The con-
clusion i plain that those citizens of
Florida ho wish a continuation of
the safe incorruptible administration
of their public business will deem it
the coue of prudence to vote for the
retenti of the State Capital at Tal-
lahasse a high, healthy inland
town w h every convenience needed
for a faithful and satisfactory conduct
ot the State's business.

Florida people sometimes com-
plain at our State officials for dere-
liction of duty in the matter' of get-
ting out laws and other printed mat-
ter late. What would they do if
said officials were as slow as Uncle
Sam's servants? Since the 1900 cen-
sus has been completed, and the re-
turns sent to Washington more than
two months ago, said Federal officers
are distributing the act providing for
and the regulations to be observed in
taking the census. It serves one
purpose, however. It enables people
to inform themselves as to whether
they have complied with the law or

The True Reason.
The Jacksonville papers have
given many reason for wanting the
State Capital located there, but the
following by one of Jacksonville's
citizens, which appeared in the "K.ick
Column" of the Metropolis, gives an
inkling of the true reason:
"Would it not be a good idea for
Jacksonville's association to have one
or two good workers from the ranks
of organized labor here to visit dif-
ferent sections of the State and show
the advantages to be had to the
working people by having the Cap-
ital located here? Every bill that
has passed the Legislature for the
betterment of labor and those that
have been pigeon-holed have had
their origin here, drawn up at the
expense of organized labor of Duval
county and sent to Tallahassee.
With the seat of government here
they would be better able to get such
legislation through that would better
the working people and farmers o0
our State, as it is from them that the
Capital Democratic vote for the most
part must come."
If Jacksonville people "would be
better able. to get such legislation
through that would better the work-
ing people," they would also "be
better, ablew to get any legislation
through which a selfish motive migrhi

The Metropolis says "During the
session of the Leffislature of 1899 a
bill was framed, introduced and came
within two votes of being enacted
Into law, which provided that the
location of the seat of State govern-
ment should be changed from Talla-
hassee to Jacksonville." This is man-
ifestly untrue in every particular. No
bill was introduced on this subject,
because bills cannot amend the Con-
stitution. A Joint Resolution to
amend the Constitution was intro-
duced in the House to remove the
Capital to Jacksonville, but as it did
not pass the House it was never at
anv time introduced or considered
in the Senate, consequently it is im-
possible for it to have come "within
two votes oE being enacted into law."
On Tuesday last we were shown a
copy of the Ulster County Gazette,
published at Kingston, Ulster county,
New York, January 4, 1800. It is
number 8S, vol. 2, of said paper
and contains many quaint advertise-
ments, showing the customs of the
people of that day. The editorial
and local pages are in deep mourning
for the death of Gen'l. Geo. Wash-
ington, and are filled with obituaries,
and a write up of the funeral of that
distinguished gentleman. Altogether
the paper is a valuable relic of days
gone by. It has been in the posses-
sion of -Mr. A. F. Roby for many
years, and is sent us for the purpose
of being turned over to University
Library, this city.

neither wise nor safe to impute to'
other localities in thi' contest the
lack of sincerity or good motives, for
it is certainly best to keep their
kindly feeling. Jacksonville is big
and strong, and in its strength it
should be generous and forgiving; so

lightly and soon forgotten. It de-

who have lost their good judgment

Most of these States are far better

Florida is at present. If the Capital

Middle and South Florida--the very

the hardest by the great freeze-and

a million dollars before they have

every cent he can raise to put out
new buds and fertilize his young
trees. These problems are of more
importance to the material welfare of
the State than any Capital removal

Possible Results.
Suppose--for the sake of argu-
ment-that at the November prima-
ries Jacksonville or Gainesville or
Ocala or St. Augustine is chosen as
the location for the State Capital,
will, or can, either one of them pro-
vide the funds for the erection of a
capitoll building? No one of them
has ever promised to do so. The
State has no money to expend for
such a purpose, and the Constitution
specifically restricts the power of the
Legislature to issue bonds for any
purpose other than to repel invasion,
suppress insurrection or redeem or
refund existing bonds. The result
would be that the seat of government,
if the whole body of the qualified
electors of the State should likewise,
in a later election, vote for removal,
might be changed and quartered in
some inadequate, unfit and cheap
temporary structure, until, by due
process, the Constitution could be
changed so as to permit the issue of
bonds for such purpose. This would
require years of time and depend
upon additional elections among the
people, all of which must result fa-
vorably to the scheme. In the mean-
while the people of the State would
possess an empty and useless public
building at Tallahassee, falling into
ruin by disuse, a monument to their
own folly in having been led by im-
pecunious professional politicians into
acts the results of which they, and
their children, and their children's

>r, Independence and patriotism
characterizes those who, at Phil-
Ihisa in 1776. promulgated the creed
ie Republic.
ving in my notification speech,
ssed somewhat at length the par-
int issue, imperialism, and added
observations on militarism and
Boer war, it is sufficient at this
to review the remaining planks
e platform.
bUlcan Party Lacks Either Desire or
Ability to Deal with It.
te platform very properly gives
tinence to the trust question. The
Using growth" of combinations in


that the Republicin party lacks either
the desire or the abRity to dde with
the question effectively. If as may 4be
fairly assumed from the speeches and
conduct of the Republican leaders, that-
party does not intend to take the peo-
ple's side against these organizations,
then the weak and qualified condem-
nation of trusts to be found in the Re-
publican platform- is designed to dis-
tauct attention while industrial despot-
ism is completing its work. A private
monopoly has always been an outlaw.
Nb defense can be made of an indus-
trial system in which one, or a few
mIen, can control for their own profit,
the output or price of any article of
merchandise. Under such a system the
consumer suffers extortion, the produ-
cer of raw material has but one pur-
chaser, and must sell at the arbitrary
price fixed; the laborer has but one
employer, and is powerless to protest
against injustice, either in wages or
in conditions of labor; the small stock-
holder Is at the mercy of the spccu!a-
tor, while the travelit~ s:,'esman con-
tributes his salary to the overgrown
profits of the trust. Since but a small
proportion of the-people can share in
the advantages secured by private
monopoly, it follows that the remain-
der of, the people are not only ex-
cluded from the benefits, but are the
helpless victims of every monopoly or-
ganized. It is difficult to over-estimgte
the immediate injustice that may be
done, or to calculate the ultimate ef-
feet of this injustice upon the social
and political welfare of the people.
Our platform, after suggesting certain
specific remedies, pledges the party to
an unceasing warfare against private
monopoly in nation, state and city. I
heartily approve of this promise; if
elected, it shall be my earnest and con-
stant endeavor to fulfill the promise in
letter and spirit. I shall select an at-
torney general who will, without fear
or favor, enforce existing laws; I shall
recommend such additional legislation
as may be necessary to dissolve every
private monopoly which does business
outside of the state of its origin; and,
if contrary to my belief and hope, a
constitutional amendment is found to
be necessary, I shall recommend such
ani amendment as will, without impair-
ing any of the existing rights of the
states, empower congress to protect
the people of a!l the sta.c? from injury
at the hands of individuals or corpora-
tions engaged In interstate commerce.
The platform accurately describes
the Dingley tariff law, while it con-
demns it as a "trust breeding measure,
skillfully .devised to gire to the few

favors 1vhich they do not deserve, and
to place upon the many burdens which
they should not bear." iUnler its op-
eration trusts can plunder the people
of the United States,. while they sue-
cessfully complete in forei~rn markets
with manufmc turers of oiliher countries.
Even those, who justify the general
policy of protection will find it d:li-
cult to defend a tariff,which enables
a trust to exact nu exorbitant toll
from the citizen.

Democratic Party Makes No War on Hon-
estly Acquired VWeath.
The Democratic party makes no war
upon honestly acquired wealth; neither
does it seek to embarrass corporations
engaged in legitimate business, but It
does protest against corporations en-
tering politics, and attempting to as-

sume control of the instrumentalities
of government. A corporation is not
organized for political purposes, and
should be compelled to confine itself
to the business described in its char-
ter. Honest corporations, engaged in
an honest business, will find it to
their advantage to aid in the enpct-
ment of such legislation as will pro-
tect them from the undeserved odium
which will be brought upon them by
those corporations which enter the po-
litical arena.
The Republican party has persist-
ently refused to comply with the ur-
gent request of the interstate com-
merce commission, for such an en-

largement of the scope of the Inter-
state commerce law as will enable the
commission to realize the hopes
aroused by its creation. The Demo-
.cratic party is pledged to legislation
which will empower ,the commission
to protect individuals and communi-

of 16 to 1, independent of the-action
of other nations, is repeated. In 1896
the Republican party recognized the
necessity for bimetallism by pledging
the party to an earnest effort to se-
cure an international agreement for
the free coinage of silver, and the
president impmediately after his in-
auguration, by authority of congress,
appointed a commission composed of
distinguished citizens to visit Europe
and solicit foreign aid. Secretary Hay,
in a letter written to Lord Aldenham
in November, 1898, and afterwards
published in England, declared that at
that time the president and a majority
of his cabinet still believed in the great
desirability of an international agree-
ment for the restoration of the double
standard, but that it did not seem
opportune to. reopen the negotiations
just then. The financial law enacted
less than a year ago containss a con-
cluding section declaring that the
measure was not intended to stand in
the way of the restoration of bimetal-
lism, whenever it could be done by
co-operation with other nations. The
platform submitted to the last Repub-
lican convention with the endorsement
of the administration again suggested
the possibility of securing foreign aid
in restoring silver.
Now the Republican party, for the
first time, openly abandons its ad-
vocacy of the double standard, and in-
dorses the monetary system which it
has so often and so emphatically con-
demned. The Democratic Iarty, on th,:
contrary, remains the steadfast advo-
cate of the gold and silver coinage of
the constitution, and is not willing
that other nations shall determine for
us the time and manner of restoring
silver to its ancient place as a stand-
ard money. The ratio of 16 to 1 is
not only the ratio now .existing be-
tween all the gold and silver dollars In
circulation in this country, a ratio
which even the Republicai adminis-
tration has not attempted to change,
but it Is the only ratio advocated by
those who are seeking to re-open the
mints. Whether the senate, now hos-
tile to bimetallism, can be changed
during this campagin or the campaign
of 1902 can only be determined after
the votes, are counted, but neither the
present nor the future political com-
plexion of congress has prevented or
should prevent an announcement of
the party's position upon this subject
in unequivocal terms.
The currency bill, which received the
sanction of the executive and the Re-
publican members of the house and
senate, justifies the warning given by
the Democratic party in 1896. It was
then predicted that the Republican
party would attempt to retire the
greenbacks, although the party and its
leaders studiously concealed their in-
tentions. That purpose is now plain
and the people must choose between
the retention of the greenbacks, issued
and controlled in volume Ly the gov-
ernment, and a national banknote cur-
rency issued by banks and controlled
In their own interests. If the na-
tional banknotes are to be secured by
bonds, the currency system now sup-
ported by the Republican party in-
volves a permanent and increasing
debt, and. ?o long as this system
stands, the financial classes will ine
tempted to throw their powerful influ-
ence upon the side of any measure

We live in a country of which the
principal scourge is stomach trouble.
It is more widespread than any ot?9 r
disease, and, very nearly, more danger-
One thing that makes it so dangerous-
is that it is so little understood.
If it were better understood, it would
be more feared, more easily cured, less

Demand Appears Firr Time I- D e-
eratic National Platform.
The demand for *a constitutional
amendment providing for the election
of senators by direct vote of the peo-
ple, appears for the first time in a
Democratic national platform, but a
resolution proposing such an amend-
ment, has three times passed the
house of representatives, and that,
too, practically without opposition.
Whatever may have been the reasons
which secured .the adoption of the pres-
ent plan, a century ago, new condi-
tious have made it imperative that the
people be permitted to speak directly
in the selection df their representatives
in the senate. A senator is no less the
representative of the state because he
receives his commission from the peo-
ple themselves, rather than from the
member nt tha sttIt p.r;oant-n.,.r. tI

There was a good deal of excitement
around town that afternoon, and when
night came the crowd at the postoffice
was as big as the time when war was
declared ag'in Spain. Most of 'em
thought Bill Lapham was goin to de-
clar war ag'in Mexico or .Canada, and
everybody was looking pale when Dea-
con Spooner called the meetin to order
and said:
"Sons of freedom, we bev gathered
here tonight to bear sone remarks
from our esteemed felled" townsman,
William Lapham. and we kin take it
that them remarks will* go beyond
geese and goslin's. Make your p'int,
"My p'int is this," says Bill as he
draws a long breath and .steps out to
git room. "We ar' now in the midst
of the turmoil of a political cam-
paign. Somebody is goin to be elected.
I ain't sayin who it'll be. but the gold-
en opportunity fur which Jericho has
sighed is at hand. Whef the newly
elected official takes the oath of of-
ice, he will be escorted to and fro."
"That's k'rect." says Deacon Spooner
as Bill pauses fur breath. "The speak-
er ain't through yit, but be's made a
pint already. When he refers to the
turmoil of campaign, It's not only high
flown language, but a strong p'int. Go
ahead. BilL"
"That escort will not only do the pres-
ident proud," continued Bill, "but
every man in it will be mentioned by
all the papers in the United States.
They'll speak of his wife and children
and town and home, and he'll be a big
man fur the rest of his life. He kin be

There was yellin and whoopin fur
the next five minit., but when the dea-
con could make himself heard he said:
"It's a p'int. gentlemen-six or seven
points. I've read all the speeches ever
delivered by Henry Clay or Daniel
Webster, and both of 'em put together
never made the points our Bill Lapham
has. Bein I' hev the floor, I'll say I
favor the idea. Yes. sir, I'm with it
heart and soul I want my name to
go down fust fur the Jericho Guards,
and I'm even willing to sacrifice myself
and be captain of the company. S'posin
we hear from Abner Jones on the sub-
"I s'pose It's known In this town that
my great-grandfather was killed at the
battle of Monmouth," says Abner as
he gets off the counter, "though I ain't
braggin about it. I'll jest say that
I'm willing to die fur 'my country any
time I'm called upon, and if I'm elected
captain of the Jericho Guards I'll
promise that no invader shall set foot
on these shores and live for five. min-
"Thar's a p'int in that." says the dea-
con as he looks a-bit put out. "When
a man's willing to die fur his country,
that's a p'int in his favor, but of course
we want to hear from other patriots.
How is It with you, Moses Plumber?"
"Does any. man here doubt that I'm
willing to die fur America?" asks Moses
as he draws himself up. "My great-
grandfather didn't die at Monmouth,
but the blood of them seven uncles of
mine that fell during the civil war flows
in my veins, and my watchword Ia

'Liberty or death!' As captain of the
Jericho Guards you'll find me at the
front, and if I don't kill at least seven
Invaders a week you kin bounce me
"The seven uncles and seven invad-
ers is a p'int, Moses," says the beacon,
"and I'm proud that we both live in the
same town. Bill Lapham seems to be
oneasy, and I'll ask him if he has any-
thing more to say"'
"In the fust place," says Bill, "I'd
like to know if everybody is in favor
of organizin the Jericho Guards."
Everybody swung his hat and yelled
out that he was.
"In the second place. I'd like to know
if everybody wants to be captain."
Everybody swung his hat and yelled
out that he did.
"But everybody can't be," protested
BilL "I don't want nobody to charge
me with bein selfish or conceited, but
I'm tellin you that this idea is mine
and that I'm the man to boss the Jer-
icho Guards. I believe I'm the only
man in this town who wanted to enlist
to fight the Spaniards."
"Bill makes a p'int, and we can't de-
nX it," says Deacon Spooner. "but
when I offered to lead them guards to
victory or death I felt that I was the
man to do It. I don't want to crowd
Bill Lapham out of place, but"-
"Neither do we!" yell 40 men,
."But he must see"-
*Of course he must!"
Then thar was yellin and shoutin and
a great uproar, and Bill Lapham said
It was a doggoned crowd, and he could
lick any two of 'em rolled together.
Deacon Spooner hammered on the
stovepipe with his cane till he could be
heard, and then he said:
"It appears as if we all want to lead
the Jericho Guards and die fur our
country, and it further appearss as If
this meeting was gittin mad about sun-

A.euraey Is of Nueh M*Oe OIIpo
tane nThan Speed.
"Speed is by no means the most,
necessary thing In shorthand writing,"
explained an experienced stenogra-
pher, "but' with some teachers it is
made the great consideration, ofttenr
at the expense of everything else. The
big thing In shorthand is legibility,
for there a* many who ean write
fast enough, but who are unable to
tell what it means after it has grown
cold. I have been a stenographer, de-
pending entirely on it for my living,.
for 25 years. During that time I have,
of course, picked up some knowledge
on the subject. I have been the
stenographer for two cabinet officers,
four assistant secretaries and three
or four senators. Incidentally I have
worked for a year as the private sec-
retary of one of the big bank presi-
dents in New York city.
"All of this experience has proven
one thing very conclusively, and that
is that there is no necessity for any
stenographer who does amanuensis
work to write over 120 words a min-
ute and in 99 cases out of '100 no ne-
cessity to write over 100 words a min-
ute. Indeed, I know of at least 25
stenographers who are drawing the
largest kind of salaries as private sec-
retaries who have assured me that
they have never been required to aver-
age as much as 90 words. Under these
circumstances it seems strange that
some teachers 4 stenography will ex-
cite pupils to write 150 to 200 words
per minute and endeavor to make them
believe that such a railroad speed Is
a necessity. Such a practice does
actual injury. for it discourages many
from even learning a moderate speed.
"There have been instances where
It may have been necessary for stenog-
raphers to be able to write over 200
and more words a minute, and there is
a legend hanging about the senate
chamber that General Hawley, for
10 or 12 minutes in a speech, once
spoke 225 words a minute. The aver-
age speed of senators In speeches does
not reach 110 -words and in dictating
letters rarely reaches 100 words."-

Bets to Be Avoided by Those Who
Never Tried the Feats.
Bets to be avoided by those who are
cocksure they can do all things are
those relating to athletic feats. It
would seem that a good runner could
easily give a start of 50 yards in 100
to a man who vwas doing the 50 yards
by hopping on "one leg. But few run-
ners, if any. can afford to give that
amount of start to any man who is
at all strong on his legs. For the first
five yards or s4 they go at practically
the same pace. so that to run 95 yards
while h1f opponent is hopping 45 he
has to go more htan twice as fast, and
It is a weak Uran indeed who cannot
hop 50 yards in ten seconds.
An ordinary wooden match is easily
broken in the fingers, but. although
there are many Wvho will bet they can
do it. none succeed in accomplishing
the task if the match is laid across the
nail of the middle finger of either hand
and pressed upon by the first and third
fingers of that hand. despite its seem-
ing so easy at first sight.
No one can crush an egg placed
lengthwise between his clasped hands
-that is. if the egg be sound and has
the ordinary shell of a hen's egg.
It is safe to bet a man that he cannot
get out of a chair without bending
his body forward or putting his feet
under it. if he is sitting on it, not at
the edge of it.
Another equally certain wager is
that a man cannot stand at the side
of a room with both of his feet touch-
ing the wainscoting lengthwise.
It sto safe to bet any man. save one
who is blind, that he cannot stand
for five minutes without moving if
he is blindfolded.

Never say die.

my troubles and asking for advice. You an-
swere i my letter promptly and I followed
the sections faithfully, and derived so
much benefit that I cannot praise

poun enough. I now find myself "
pregn nt and have begun its "
use again. I cannot praise it /\
enough ." .

health is much improved, and I have a big baby boy, the joy
and p e of our home."
