]ow in control o ur party affairs
seem to have for tten that our inter-
estd are concern and seem deter-
mined to sacrifice he interests of the

But these poli cians will answer
me and say, "Bu it will be to your
interests to move t" but never tell
me how it will to my interest;
they deal in gene al statements and
never get down t matters of proof.
They do not expl n how the Capital
at Jaksonville wi increase the price
of my cotton, cor oranges, melons,
and other fruit; turpentine, lum-
ber, cattle or an ing else which I
have for sale. Jacksonville con-
sumed all of these products, or furn-
ished a market fo them, it would be
different, but J a onville does not
reglate such pri but Savannah,
New York, Chi and other places
to which they are shipped, fix such
'pries. If we vo for Jacksonville,
cam these politi guarantee an in-
cremin our prices No. Why not?
Boanue it is imp ble, and because
the law of supply d demand fixes
all prices.
.Jacksonville in er pamphlet says,
your State Convetion has decided
that the time has me when the iq-
ter*Abs of Florida demand that the
future location of e Capital Rhall be
decided by you. This is not true.
The Convention e no such decis-
ion. The politicians are misrepre-
seting their acti. We all know
of the conditions which existed at
that time, and f either know that
schemes and politil trading was the
cause of the quest n being permitted
to be submitted to e voters. Jack-
sonville says it w agitated because
of the bad repair o the building; but
a great number o1 the delegates to
that convention hive never visited
Tallahassee, hav never seen the
building, and therefore could not
know. what was itsl condition. It is
not in the condition these few poli-
ticians would have ou believe it is in.
It it was in such re air, and if the in-
terest of Florida demanded a new
one, why did not Gvernor Perry, of
Pensacola, Gove or Mitchell, of
Tampa, Governor leming, of Jack-
sonville, and Governor Bloxham, of
Tallahassee, call th6 attention of the
Legislature to it in beir messages to
That body? The lafr required them
to call the attention of the Legisla-
ture to whatever wa needed for the
State's good. Did my one of them
do so? No. Why lot? Because it
was all right. Weri they not good
Governor? Yes. As good as Flor-
ida ever had, or ever will have. If
any one of them ha neglected such
an important interest, then why was
the administration 4f each one en-
dorsed by your Stae Conventions?
This proves, then, t.jat there is both-
ing the matter with the building, al-
though the politicians say differently.
Which will you believe?

ow", or ever will buy, and all prop-
erty which your children will inherit
from you, or will buy, in the sum of
$1,000,000 and interest. This sumE
wish interest amounts to $2,000,000.
After you vote for it, an4< the money
is l orrowed by the State, this money
must be paid back. There is no way
of your escaping your pro rata part
of it, except by selling your home
and farm, and thus pay no taxes.
Thi issuance of bonds by the State
of Florida is a mortgage upon all
taxable property in the State, and
this includes your farm.
But Jacksonville, in her pamphlet,
very shrewdly says "but the rail-
roads and telegraph companies will
"pay 20 per cent," or one-fifth of
this.entire amount. To be as chari-
table as possible, I must'say that it is
unfair for Jacksonville to deliber-
ately try to deceive the farmers and
make them believe- that they would
escape 20 per cent. of this amount,
because it would fall on the rail-
roads, but we are not so easily de-
ceived. How do the railroads make
their money? Out of the farmers
and the people; therefore, we know
that .if the railroads, at first, are re-
quired to pay said 20 per cent., that
said companies will increase their
rates on your goods shipped, and in
the qnd the farmer will pay said 20
per cent., which at first was directly
paid by them, but through the rail-
One million of dollars! Do you
realize how much money this is?
One thousand dollars is a large sum
of money. Just think of ten thous-
and. A man with -$10,000 is well
off. A man with $50,000 is wealthy.
A fekv men own $100,000; then mul-
tiply: this by two and one-half, and
you !have $250,000; then' multiply
this by four, and you have $1,1100,-
000.: Now add another $1,000,000
and you have $2,000,000, the amount
you .re asked to vote for. Will y.u
Vote i for this immense sum? No.
STo s ow you how much money this
8 is I till use this illustration: There
, are about 464,000 people in Florida,
e including every man, woman and
t childA white and black. Now, sup-
pose the State should decide to dis-
Y tribute this immense amount equally
I among all of the population of Flor-
e ida and should assess each man,
a woman and child equally; take your
I pencil and paper and figure it out; in
0 that event you must divide the
a $2,000,000 by the number of popula-
e tion and you will find what a large
g sum iof money every man, woman
Y and child, white and black, would
>t have to pay. Think of it Would
1 you, ,then, Vote to burden yourself
and- every one of your neighbors
with sucha sum? No. But I ask
, you to recollect that only forty per
" cent. of these 464,000 people pay
taxes that the other sixty per cent

must pay these $2,000,000, and be-
cause you must pay according to the
amount of property you own. It
then becomes the duty of every man
to himself and his family to register,
pay his poll tax, and vote for Talla-
hassee and against a constitutional
convention, because, by so voting is
the only way to prevent such a heavy
increase in your taxes.

And said I that u'ay blood was cold
And that my kindly fire was fled
And my poor withered leart was dead
And that I might not sing of love?
Bow could I to tie dearest theme
That ever warmed a minstrel's dream,
So foul, so falsq a recreant prove?
How could I name love's very name
Nor wake my har ta notes of flame?
In peace Love turas the shepherd's reed;
In war be mount the warrior's steed;

Smith reportedlyl presently, "Mr.

but we can't get the rails." '"Tele-

pay any price," said Gould. "1 have

A Short Lesson on the Meaning of a
Familiar Word.
Disease is the opposite of ease. Web-
ster defines disease as "lack of ease, un-
easiness, trouble, vexation, disqulet."
It us a condition due to some derange-
ment of the physical organism. A vast
majority of the "di+-ease" from which
people s-ffer is due to impure blood.
Disease of this kind is cured by Hood'
Sarsaparilla which purifies, enriches and
vitalizes the blood. Hood's Sarsaparlia
cures scrofula, salt rheum, pimples and
all eruptions. It tones the stomach and
creates a gdod appetite, and it gives vigor
and vitality to the whole body. It re-

In the first place, volcanoes are not

are Just the reverse-that is. holes in
the earth's crust. Out of these are

Beau Brammel an4 HIs Boots.
In the "Reminiscences and Recollee-
tions of Captain Grownow" (who was
himself a famous dandy) occurs the
following anneedote of Beau Brum-
mel, the time being 1815.
The dandy's dress consisted of a blue
coat, with brass buttons, leather
breeches and top boots, and it was the
fashion to wear a deep, stiff white
cravat, which prevented you from
seeing your boots while standing.
All the world watched Brummel to
Imitate him, and order their clothes of
the tradesman who dressed that sub
lime dandy. One day a youthful beau
approached Brummel and said:
"Permlt me to ask you where yon
get your blacking?"
"Ah!" replied Brummel, gazing com-
placently at his boots, "my blacking
positively ruins me. I will tell you In"

One evening a favorite cousin called.
He was captain of a brig which was
to sail for the coast of Africa the next
day, but he himself was going on a
steamer via England. Did his cousin
have a valise she wouldn't need for
six months or so? Reluctantly the
traveling bag was produced, and that
was the last time the lady saw It for
two years, when it reached her by the
hand of a sailor from the brig. But it
was in such a battered and forlorn
condition that she consigned, it to the
waste barrel.
In the meantime she had bought a
new valise, which she declined to lend.

even by the rank and file of their
own party. But, then, there is no
necessity for the rank apd file of the
republican party to comprehend this
or. anything else. Hanna and the
other leaders give them an inspired
gospel, which they are to believe
and act upon by faith alone. Of all
the preposterous things that the Re-
publicans have asserted and still as-
sert, the most preposterous,' in the
eyes of fair-minded men, is the
dogma that the acts of the Presi-
dent in regard to foreign affairs are
to be taken as the acts of the coun-
try and are not to be criticised. In
times of grave national peril, it is
the first duty of the citizen to sup-
port the government, but to say that
the war against the Filipinos involves
a military peril to this country is to
speak nonsense. To say that this
war, accompanied as it is with the
claim that the President and Con-:
gress may govern a people without
their consent and the territories of
the United States without constitu-
tional restraint, ought not to be dis-
cussed by the people, is to deny them
the right to pass on a vital issue af-
fecting. the character of their gov-
ernment. It is an idea to claim on

behalf of the administration exemup-
tion from criticism. That this might'
prolong the struggle was one%f the
obvious risks of a war that was not
undertaken for national defense. It
is ridiculous to charge the inevitable
consequences of this war. to those
who from the outset have denied its
necessity and pointed out its perils.,

Writing to the editor of the TAL-
LAHASSEEAN under date September:
14, a prominent citizen of Lake
county says:
"I desire to be informed if it is
lawful to vote for a removal of the
State Capital, when white Republican
tax-payers are excluded from voting?
as is said to be the case in the pres-
ent instance. If tlere be any cause
existing I can get Republicans here
to plead for an injunction against the
said election this fall, and so defeat

the Jacksonville people, for
people in Lake county are

all the
not in

.harmony to put- the Capital to said:
place. Give us a rest."
The primary to be held on the 6thj
of November on the question of Cap-.
ital removal is only a party measure,
and hence only those affiliating with.
the DemocratiF party will be allowed
to vote at said primary. The result,
of this primary election does not set-,
tie the question, except in so far as it
seeks to impose a moral obligation
upon Democratic members of the:
Legislature of 1901 to vote in accord-'
ance therewith, when the question is,
brought up before that legislative
body. For instance, should Ocala,
St. Augustine or Jacksonville win at
the November primary, and the Leg-
islature pass a joint resolution pro-
poming an amendment to the Consti-!
tution whereby such place would be-
come the Capital 3f the State, the
said joint resolution would still have
to be submitted for ratiti c ition or re-
jection to all the electors of the State
at the Ageneral election to be held in
1902. If ratified it would then be-
come effective.

It is important, however, that the
question should be completely
snowed under at the November pri-
mary, by voting for Tallahassee.

That there is serious opposition in
our own ranks on the Capital re-
moval question is apparent to all who
daily talk to the voters of our city as
we do.-Florida Journal, Jackson-
That there was a formidable oppo-
sition to Capital removal in Dnval
county, we. have been convinced for
some time. The people there are al-
ready paying so much tax t'iat they
do not care to be further burdened in
that direction.

Let Us See What the Records Say-
Misleading statements having been
made as to the action of the Legisla-
ture in the matter of submitting to
the people a proposed amendment to
the State Constitution relating to the
location of the seat of government,-
the records of the House of Repre-
sentatives and Senate have been ex-
amined, and the facts disclosed by
the official Journals are as follows:
"House Joint Resolution No. 18.
By Mr. Clark.
A joint resolution proposing an
amendment to Section 1 of Article
XVI of the Constitution of the State
of Florida, relating to the lo< action of
the seat of government," was taken up
and the substitute therefore offered
by the committee was adopted to
take the place of the original resolu-
tion. The substitute was then read
the first, and second, time, and on
motion of Mr. Clark, of Duval, the
resolution was read the third time
and put upon its passage. The vote
was: Yeas "37," Nays "30." "So the
resolution having failed to receive the,
requisite three-fifths vote did not
pass." The number of votes (three-
fifths of all the members elected)
which is required by the Constitution.
to pass a proposed amendment in the
House of Representatives is 41;
number voting for the proposed"
amendment 37, or 4 less than the
number required. .
The following explanations were
made by members of the House, as
appears on the Journals:
Mr. Harvell, of Santa Rosa coun-
ty, said:
"Believing that this. resolution
would increase the burden of taxes
on the tax-payers of the State of
Florida, and believing this to be un-
wise legislation at this time, as oar
people are now being taxed with bur-
dens that are almost crushing them
out of existence, and the passing -of
this resolution would cost the tax-
payers of the State of Florida seven
or eight hundred thousand dollars,
I therefore vote No."
Mr. Sloan, of Polk county, said:d
"I desire to say that, in my judg-
ment, the tax-payers of our State,
considering their financial qondi-
tion, are already too heavily burdened
and feeling that no additional bur-
den, except for something absolutely
necessary should be imposed, and
feeling that the removal of the Capi-
tal is not a necessity, I vote No."
Mr. G. P. Healey, of Vplusia
county, said: .
"I. I will' not vote to saddle a
debt of one-half million dollars or
more on the people of this State.
"2. This will register and qualify
every black vote in the State, and
J when they are instructed on their
vote on the amendment they will get
other instructions how to vote for
Governor from their own party.
"3. I am opposed to all Constitu-
tional amendments, and in favor of a
is dependent upon the health of the wife
more than on any other one thing. If a
woman is troubled in
a distinctly feminine
way the most delicate
nerves of her body are -
in a state of chronic
irritation. She has
headache and back-
dche. She is listless
and spiritless. She is
cross and blue. She < y\
feels that life is not
worth living and her l
temper reflects the
condition of her
nerves. Poor, suffering wi-poor, dis-
Iracted husband. If the husband is a

cheerful, good-humored man he. will
sympathize-if he is nervous, tired and
irritable himself, he will probably go off
to the club or seek elsewhere more con-
genial company.
A sick woman is to be pitied because
she is miserable and because she has not
yet learned that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre-
scription will make her well.

Advantages of Com.oidation.
"A conservative estimate of the ad-
vantages derived from consolidation is
believed to be $1,300,000 over the pres-
ent earnings, which would make a to-
tal of future net earnings, with the
estimated earnings based on ten
months of the year's business of $2,-
500,000, of G per cent. on the preferred
stock. and over 11 per cant. on the
common stock of the new company."
It will thus be seen from the pros-
pectus that ihe advantages secured by
the cutting down tif experse.-, will
double the Inon'c. and not a word is
said about giving th. advantages cf

the public? WLat guarauilee has the

No Hope from Republicans.
During the present administration
no honest effort has been made to pro.
tect the people from these monopolies.
The Republican party controls :he Ex-
ecutive and the legislative dcpart-
ments of the federal government. It
can enforce the laws which now exit:.
It can propose and enact new law.-,
but it does neither. No l:crsors watch the.conduct of the Rrpublican:
1,arty and read the sprcl'ets of Re-
publican leaders, and still believe the
Republican* party sincere in its eec-
laration against the trusts.
The Republican platform on this
question and the president's letter of
acceptance, taken in connection with
the party's record, prove conclusive-
ly that no relief can be hoped for from
that party. Instead of pointing out
the evils of trusts the Republican lead-
ers spend their time in exulting over
present conditions. The trust is a part
of -Dresent conditions, and Mr. F.lnt.

sold forty-eight hundred bushels of
oats at 30 cents per bushel (supposed
to be the yield of 120 a and. that
the amount received f the oats was
more than double the rice paid for
the land. The Trib article then
proceeded to dilate ua the prosper-

as an illustration, and asserted that
the farmers of Nebras were becom-
ing so opulent that the were joining
the Republican party. e facts are,
first: That I had five of oats in-

state of Florida, and the same were agreed to by.

f'omn .1.:ih I have already qro:ed, de-
clarcd that the formation of large cor-
porations was one of the important
features of what he described as the
present business activity. If Repub-
lican leaders really regarded priv::te
monopoly an evil; if they really in-
tended tot apply an effective remedy,
they would not hesitate to denounce
trusts and suggest means for their
extermination, but they express far
more solicitude for the corporation
than for the people at large. One is
reminded of the picture which a moth-
er once showed to her boy to impress
upon his youthful mind the sufferings
of the Christian Martyrs, who were be-
ing thrown into the arena and torn
to pieces by the lions. The boy looked
at the picture for a moment, and then
his face brightened up as he thought
he caught the idea. 'Pointing down
into one point of the picture, he said:
"Why, mamma, there is one poor lit-
tle lion that isn't getting a bit" It
is even so with the Republican lead-
ers. Their sympathy goes out freely
to any corporation, which in their
opinipn is not getting its share, bui'
they are not moved by the hardships
imposed by monopolies upon all who
are outside of the charmed circle.
Three sessions of congress have con-
vened and adjourned since the presi-
dent's inauguration, and yet he has

I ask. in the ftAt Ipace, whether a
ful dinner pa to all that a laboring
man needs? It is an insult to the
wpge-earner-to say that his thoughts
are entirely centered- upon his physi-
cal wants. Republican speakers and
editors assume that the laboring man
is all stomach. They act upon the the-
ory that he complains only when he
is hungry, and is happy whenever his
hunger is appeased.
The Oull lnner Pall.
If a full dinner pail were the cnly
thing desired, and if every laboring
man had plenty to eat it would still
be necessary for the Republican par-
ty to show some connection between.
Republican policies and the laboring
man's food supply. If bountiful crops
come to the farmer he does not thank
a Republican administration. If a
famine aboard raises the price of farm
I'oducts here the farmer does not
# ank the Republican party for bring-
Iag the famine. If an unexpected ang
an unpromised increase In the gold
supply gives any respite from finan-
cial stringency can the Republican
party claim credit? The question is
not whether the laboring man is able
to exist under present conditions, but
whether he is enjoying his share .of
the blessings of the country and the
protection of the government. Com-
pare the laboring man with the trust
magnate, and see which fares the best
at the hands of the Republican party.
Inquire also whether the laboring
man's income has increased as rapid-
ly as his living expenses.
But even If every laboring man was

culate the annual income of a miner,
and figure out, if he can, how the
miner fs going to keep himself#, and
support his family under present con-
ditions; and then lA the parent ask
himself whether he is willing to have
his son take his chances with the main-
ers. Is it due to natural or to human
laws that the producer of wealth fares
so poorly. while the man at the head
of a monopoly secures so much?
All Monopolies AreBad.
Those who attempt to divide private
monopolies into good monopolies and
bad monopolies will never make any
progress toward the overthrOw of the
trusts. There is no good monopoly
in private hands; there never was, and
never will be. With all the advance-
ment in civilization man is still too
selfish to be trusted with the abso-
lute control with that which his fP-
lows must have. The Republican
party has no remedy for the trusts.
Publicity is good, but publicity alone
is not sufficient The practices of the
trusts must not only be made known,
they must be prevented. The Demo-
cratic platform contains a demand for
legislation which will place trust made
articles on the free list. There is no
doubt that such a law would protect
the people from much of the extortion
which is practiced under cover of
high tariff laws. If a tariff duty ex-
cludes the foreign product, while do-
mestic manufacturers combine to raise
the price of home product, the Ameri-
can citizen may be plundered here,
while the trust sells abroad in compe-
tition with the world. It may not be
out of place to suggest that I Intro-
duced a bill eight years ago providing
Perry Davis' Pain-Killer.-Its valua-
ble properties as a speedy cure for pain
cannot fail to be generally appreciated,
and no family should be without it in
case of accident, or sudden attacks of
dysentery, diarrhoea or cholera morbus
Sold everywhere. Avoid subsLitutes,
there is but one Pain-Killer, Perry
Davis'. Price 25c and 50c.
:or this remedy, but we are not w.\i-
ing to stop at one remedy, we desire
to apply every remedy within the pow-
er- of the state and federal govern-
ments. Congressional action is not
necessary to destroy a trust which con-
fines its operations to a single city,
or a single state. Such a trtist can
be exterminated by state legislation.
It is within the power of the state to
prescribe the conditions upon which
corporations shall be organized, and
these conditions should be such as to
make a private monopoly place limi-
taions upon outside corporations doing
business within the state. This. how-
ever, is not sufficient. Congress must
co-operate with the state in preventing
the organization of any interstate mo-
nopoly. Without impairing the pres-
ent authority of the state, congress
can provide that corporations orfan-
ized in any state shall not do business
outside of the state until certain neces-
sary conditions are complied with. If
the people of any state are willing to
create and continue a monopoly, the
people of other states need feel no con-
cern. so long as the monopoly is con-
fined to the state in which the corpora-
-tion originates. But the moment a
monopoly crosses the state line and
invades other states, congress has a
right to, and must, interfere for the
protection of the public at large. If
a corporation organized in New Jersey
or any other state, were prohibited
from engaging .in Interstate commerce

there was no water in the stock, and
that it had not attempted, and was not

But why riult:ipm illustrations of
the evil of monopoly? No matter how
tempting the prcsnt advantage: no
matter how alluring tl:e immediate
prospect every citizen will find it to
his permanent advantage to aid in the
overthrow of the monopolistic prin-
eiple, and in the re-establishment of
the industrial system upon a basis of
justice. Give the boy a chance, and
let success be the reward of merit.
The attempt of the Republican par-
ty to largely increase our military es-
tablishment suggests another inquiry:
Is your son safe when new Ideals are
substituted for the 'deals cherished
during the past century, when the doe-
trine of force la accepted as an Amer-
lean doctrine. Up to this time we
have encouraged science and the arts;
we have proclaimed the advantages
of peace, and have preached the gos-
pel of love. What will be the effect
upon the character of future genera-
tions if we encourage the professional
soldier at the expense of the civilian,
and teach the creed that might can
create right.
]Dangers of Milltarism.
Is your son safe when a large mili-
tary establishment is being built up
to protect syndicates organized to de-
velop distant lands? When Mr. Mc-
Kinley was inaugurated there were
only 25,000 soldiers in the regular
army. In December, 1898, the presi-
dent recommended that the standing
army be increased to 100,000 men. A
Republican house of representatives,
prompt to do his bidding, passed the
bill-and this was done- after the
treaty of peace was signed and before
hostilities broke out in Manila. Why
did we need such an army? Possibly
the prospectus issued by the Philip-
pine Lumber and Development com-
pany will explain. The company has
-an office In the Merchants' Loan &
Trust company. 135 Adams 'street,
Chicago. The prospectus says, "Nego-
tiations are pending for timber rights,
sarrd s.',i-' valuable timber rights have
alrr:.'v Iee-i secured, and negotiations
for < t:;rs are rapidly approaching
comp:c.ton. No other company can

A'neiicani Iumbnerran in which ap-
pears the1 following: "Unlike most
trop,-al countries the labor problem
is e::si.y solved by the Chinese labor,

The <:.i't::lst may see an advantage

made to the organization last DIecem-
ber, warns the laboring man to be-
