Important Work of the Railroad Com-
The work of the Railroad Com-
mission which was in session in this
city last week and at which all the
railroads was most ably represents-
tion may be of the utmost impor-
tance to all the shippers of the
Southern States. The Commission
submitted a new classification of
rates to the railroad corporations,
that it is thought, will be adopted by
the other Railroad Commissions
throughout the South.
The Florida Commission-gave the
railroad companies thirty days to
show cause why the classification
should not be made permanent. The
railroads in the South Eastern As-
sociation last February issued a new
classification sheet which increased
the rates from 70 to 150 per cent.
throughout the South. The new
classification of the Commission
simply restores the old rate in effect

he people voted for Tallahassee,

building there, it would save expense

speakers asserted so on the stump,
nd that is the reason, I assert again,

Mr. McKinstry of Alachua agreed

try, "was not decided in the verdict.
know that my people voted for
iallahassee principally because they
were not in favor of increasing taxes
by the erection of a new Capitol."
Judge Raney, of Tallahassee: "I
want to express my admiration of
he spirit of the chairman of this
Convention, who introduced the res-
olution. lie has been an earnest ad-
vocate of Jacksonville, and to him
belongs the honor of a well-fought
ight. The contest has been made
n the Legislature, and was lost there;
t has been made before the people
and has been lost there, and I do not
think that this committee has any
authority to represent the entire
party and urge the Legislature to
make any appropriation. We are
only here to canvass the vote, and
that is all we have to do. The Leg-
islature is the only judge of what
shall be done about a Capitol building.
No matter what has been said upon
the stump, this committee has
no power to express itself on what
shall be done by the Legislature. I
believe the resolution, with all due
respect to the gentleman who intro-
duced it, is a mistake, and I ask him
to withdraw the motion. The peo-
ple of my county will know what he
has done, and will recognize the gen-
erosity of his motives."
Mr. Clark, in replying, said: "I
am grateful to the gentleman from
-Leon for what he has said, but I
must again differ from him as to the
power of this committee. The in-
herent right to express its opinion on
any question is recognized after the
official canvass has been made and
declared final, and it has a right tc
say what shall be done relative to
"If.Jacksonville had won,we would
Have expected a Capitol building here
that would have been a credit to the
State and a glory for all time tc
This question ought to be settled
for ever, and we should erect on thE
red hills of old Leon a Capitol build
ing that will put us on a par with thi
other States in the Union."
Mr. McKinstry renewed his mo
tion to lay the matter on the table
and the chairman put it to a yea an<
nay vote, with the result that twenty
nine yea votes were cast and fourteen
nays. So the resolutions were lai<
on the table.
J. Emmet Wolff then moved tha
the vote of the counties for candi
dates where there was no contest bI
certffied. This was carried.
The committee then proceeded t
the consideration of the contests be
tween the candidates for State At
torneys in the 4th and 7th Judiciu

Commissioners joining the organi-
zation emphatically express their
refusal to adopt or in any way rec-
ognize the use of the new classifica-
tion, known as classification No. 27.
This recommendation was adopted.
Another important action taken by
that convention of Railroad Com-
missioners was the appointment of a
permanent classification committee
by the Commission, which will be to
the body then organized, what the
classification committee of the rail-
roads is to them. Hon. H. E. Day
was made chairman of this commit-
tee and now all changes desired in
classification must pass through that
committee's hands and meet its ap-
proval before being accepted as
legal in the States represented.
The new classification just sub-
mitted by our Commissioners to the
various railroads has been submitted
to this classification committee and
will be approved of by them. If so,
it will effect railroad rates through-
out the South and by being uniform,
be of great benefit to all shippers.
We thus see how important has been
the work of our Comimission during
the past week. lion. Mr. Day de-
serves great credit for his persever-
ance in bringing about this result, a
result which we consider is the most
important that has ever been effected
by Railroad Commissions during the
whole period of their existence.

Washington, Nov. 17, 1900.-
Vashingson is looking forward with
great pleasure to the coming three
years of Congress. This is entirely
natural when the circumstances of
he case are considered. Wshing-
on depends on the government for
existence. A Republican Congress
always brings, not only vastly larger
and more wasteful appropriations
han does a Democratic one, but it
attracts a coterie of wealthy men.
rust magnates, lobbyists arid the
ike, who come to solicit favors that
hey would never dare to ask from
he Democrats. These men spend
heir money freely and producE-
'prosperity" here. Then again, the
result of the election insures the re-
tention of most of the present clerk!
n their positions and frees them from
fear of the "rotation in office" advo-
cated by the Democr its. Of course,
thle other side of this appeals to those
who are outside and want to have
their turn at the public table, but
these latter are not in Washington to
any great extent while the former
are. Last session, although the ap-
propriations were the largest in the
history of the country whether in
peace or war, still there was some
curb on them in view of the ap-
proaching elections. Now there
will be none, and a riot of jobs may
be expected. The river and harbor
bill will probably be the largest in.
history, the public building bills will
cost millions, the ship subsidy and
army and navy appropriations will
be almost without limit, and a goodly
portion all of these will find their
way into Washington pockets.
Hlence, Washington is happy.
Representative J. H. Bankhead, of
Alabama, who is the ranking Demo-
cratic member of the Committee on
Public Building and Geounad, and
also a member of the River and mr-
bor Committee, was in Washington
yesterday to escort some of his col-
leagues to an inspection of the Coosa
river, and in an interview on the re-
sults of the elections said: "I do not
look for any immediate reorganiza-
tion of the Democratic party. The
defeat at the recent election was by no-
means a death blow. The party has
survived much worse defeats before.
It is not time yet to talk of reorgani-
zation or candidate-. Some man
will come forward for the emergency
when the time is at hand." At the
same time, most Democratic leaders
agree that it will be necessary to r&-
organize before the next election in
order to meet changed conditions.
In the past the Siuth has had a cer-
tain number of Votes which is al-
ways cast for the Democratic candi-
date and which, with New York and
Indiana, gave it a splendid chance to
win. Hereafter, it will have nothing
of the sort, even if it wins back the
border States which it lost in the last
two elections, and even if it retains
its present voting strength. There is
no reasonable doubt, however, that it
will not retain this. The Republi-
cans intend to out it down in propor-
tion to the disfranchised illiterate ne-
gro vote. If only twenty votes are
taken away from the South by this
means (and it is more probable that
the number will be forty) the com-
manding position of the South will
be gone, and iAugs will have to be
framed to win .jne Northern States
or the party wi ve to resign itself
to continued d ejt.
One of the sc"e"es which will un-
doubtedly be ljisaed to fruition in
Congress this wiatr is the ship sub-
sidy bill, whi grants enormous

A Village Blacksmith Saved His Lit-

Mr. H. H. Black, the well-known vil-

van county, N. Y., says: "Our little
son, tive years old, has always been sub-
ject to croup, and so bad have the at-
tacks been that we have feared many
times that he would die. We have had
the doctor and used many medicines,
but Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is
now our sole reliance. It seems to dis
solve the tough mucous and by giving
frequent doses when the croupy symp-
tomus appear we have found that the

Washington, Nov. 13.-The com-
ing session of Congress will be in
many respects an exciting one. It
will be a short one, expiring by limi-
tation on March 4 next, but will be
crammed full of incident. Three
important measures will be taken up
-the ship subsidy steal, the army
increase bill and the new Congres-
sional re-apportionment. The first
named is undoubtedly one of the
most shameless raids upon the treas-
ury attempted since the bonanza of
the salary grab and the Credit Mo-
bilier, thirty years ago. That bill,
when enacted, will be a heavy drain
upon the treasury for years to come
and will furnish the opportunity for
another gigantic trust to control
shipbuilding and ocean transporta-
tion. It will for years stand as one
of the obstacles in the way of any
reduction of taxation, and after it is
firmly established its repeal will be
declared impossible on account of
iiupairment of "invested interests."
It is likely that nothing will stand in
the way of the enactment of the bill
at this session. It was introduced
last winter, but was allowed to go
over on account of the election.
The arrant bad faith of the Re-
publican administration is shbqwa by
thQ fact that while the votes were
being cast an order was being pre-
pared in the War Department re-
voking all orders for the return of
the volunteers from the Philippines.

questionably Fain-Killer, ior the instant

But the strength and spirit of the
people of those islands and their love
of liberty were underestimated. It
is now necessary, if their conquest is
to be completed, to continue the
army on a war footing possibly for
an indefinite period. Provision has
already been made for the education
of a larger number of officers at
West Point, thus indicatifig that the
administration has no expectation of
ever reducing the army to 25,0(0,

There will be a bitter fight over
the new apportionment, if any :.t-
tempt is made to reduce southern
representation on the plea that the
negroes have been disfranchised.
Fortunately, it is extremely difficult
to frame a law that will hit the
South, without also injuring north-
ern States like Massachusettes,
which disfranchises all illiterates.
Probably, if it is resolved to attempt
to pass such a law, the whole matter
will be postponed until the next Con-
gress, as the new apportionment will
not be used until the election of
1902, .though it is desirable to adopt
it as soon as possible, so that the va-
rious legislatures may redistrict their
territory in accordance with possible
changes in the number of their rep-

This, it-was frankly declared was to
be issued no matter which side should
win, and it has now been issued. In
other words, it was practically con-
fessed that all the talk about retiring
the volunteers because the war was
over!was merely pre-election guff, in-
tended to fool the voters and not to be
carried out. While-it is not stated
when the instructions to begin the
transportation of volunteers home
will be renewed, it is expected that
under present arrangements the en-
tire force will remain on duty in the
Philippines until February or March,
and meantime it is the understand-
ing of War Department officials that
the coming session of Congress will
adopt some law for the increase 9f
the army, so that it may not be nec-
essary to return the entire force.
This must be done this winter as the
army will be reduced by existing
law to about 27,000,000 on Jaly 1
next. The theory of Congress in
passing the law, was that the con-
quest of the Philippine Islands would
be completed by the time it expired.

"When that wonden.'ul railroad gen- ;
ius, the late Thomas A. Scott.,-was
building up the Pennsylvania system,
the work he did was supei-uumnin, the
results he accomplished marvelouss"
said an old railroad m:iu. "Scott was
essentially a man of action. For ex-
ample, at one time there occurred on
the line a freight wreck that piled up
scores of cars in a confused heap in a
cutting, thus completely barring the
"The local authorities were beside
themselves, for they could not figure
out how the wreck could be cleared
away and the line openedd in less than
two weeks. At this juncture Scott ar-
rived on the scene and after a survey
of the wreck sent for a great quantity
of coal oil, with which he had the pile
thoroughly drenched. It was then
touclied off, and the god of fire soon
removed all trace of it, and traffic was
resumed on the line in 24 hours.
"A bridge fell, and it was feared a
long delay must ensue, but Scott put
more than 2,000 men to work on that
one structure and thus eliminated the
question of delay. Those were the
days when such things counted and
were not only possible, but necessary.
Today railroading is reduced to such a
fine point that the need for them no
longer exists. The roads are too safe-
guarded for that.
"The last instance I remember of
such railroad work as that was at the
Johnstown flood in ISS. L think it was.
Frank Thomson, by great work and
the use of side lines. was one of the
first to arrive uponU the scene. Once
there, he took full control, the division
superintendents from all over the line
were summoned. and a particular task
was given to each one to do instantly.
They one and all responded as be4lt
they could to the spur. and the line
was reopened with incredible swift-
ness. There were one or two failures.

were kept on as superintendents of un-

A FAMOUS LIGHTHOUSE.
Tillamooe Reek, at the Mouth of the
The most famous lighthouse on the
Pacific coast is that of Tillamook rock,
70 miles south of the mouth of the Co-
lumbia river. Oregon. The rock is 82
feet above the sea. yet at the time Mr.
Lord made one of his photographs a
wave was breaking through a crevasse
and hurling its spray higher than the
summit. On this day it was too rough
for the Columbine's boat to make a
landing. Coal for the station had to be
hoisted in net slings, and the keeper
had to be lowered in a cage or basket
and, suspended in midair over the sea,
report on the condition of himself and
his assistants, as they were short of
provisions, most of the supply having
been destroyed during a storm.
From the side of the rock a heavy sea
at the height of this storm tore off two
pieces averaging 63 pounds and hurled
them upon the roof of the keeper's
dwelling. With the weight of the wa-
ter these fragments made a hole 26 feet
in area in the roof, flooded the building
to a depth of over five feet and washed
out two walls, throwing three rooms
into one, an "improvement" for which

[Copyright, 1900, by C. E. Lewis.]
Mr. Gallup had gone down town
after supper to hear the political news,
and It was 9 o'clock when he got back
home. He had left Mrs. Gallup clearing
away the dishes and singing "Happy
.Day," but when he returned she was
lying on the lounge with her eye:
dosed and the house quiet as a grave-
yard. He sat down after, a glance at
the figure and laboriously untied his
shoes and pried them off and then
picked up the family almanac to see
what time the moon would be in her
Iast.quarter. Ten minutes passed, and
Mrs. Gallup uttered a long drawn sigh.
Two minutes later she groaned. A
ilanute after the groan, as Mr. Gallup
had paid no attention to her, she sat
up and said:
"Samuel, you've come here Jest In

out biddin you goodbye, but you are
here. You hadn't been gone from the
house ten minits when I went to carry

disturb you much if I die tonight, will
Mr. Gallup didn't reply. He had
found the moon's last quarter and was
"I've never bin no hand to make you
trouble. Samuel," she continued. "and
I 'shan't begin now. If you'd rather
I'd die In the daytime. I'll try and hold

Nothing, from fust to last, won't cost a

One of Mr. Gallup's eyebrows was
slightly raised in a questioning man-
ner, but he made no verbal reply.
"Only $390. Samuel, and that includes
one of the best lots in the graveyard.
1f you wanted to bury me out in the
:back yard, the cost would be reduced
ko $25, and I don't think any husband
on earth kin complain of that. There
are wives who'd kick ag'in bein buried
'in the back -yard. but I shan't say a
.word. And I've arranged other things
fur you, Samuel. While you've bin

If he was, there were no signs of it.
He had got through with the moon
and passed on to the medical testi-
,monials, and he seemed to be reading
with bated breath.
: "All you'll hev to do." she continued
after a sob. or two, "is to move about
kinder sorrerfullike and shed a few

but all the folks will be watching you
to see if you are affected. You've got
aix handkerchiefs almost as good as
you shed tears from both eyes. Don't
you think I'm right. Simuel?"
She wiped her tears and held back
her sobs and waited for a reply, but
none came. Mr. Gallup was reading
how the life of a man who had fallen
on a pitchfork had been saved by
Persian stomach bitters, and his cars
"As to buryin me In the back yard,
of course yo' kin do as you think
best. In one way It will save you $5,
and in another it'll take up ground

course, and your second wife will want
a hammock out under the trees. Meb-
be she'll object to my grave.. If I was
your second wife, I wouldn't object to
your first wife's grave, but I'm differ-
ent from most women. You'd better
think the thing over purty seriously.
And there's another thing. Samuel. A
long time ago I told you that if you
ever got married ag'in I'd haunt you.
I was mad and said more'n I ought
to. Of course I could come back as a
ghost and roost on the footboard of
the bed and keep you awake uights,
and I could hide down cellar and skeer
you most to death when you come
down after cider, but I'm not that kind
of woman. Right here and now 1
want to tell you that I'll never haunt
you nor your second wife. Don't you
think I'm purty good, Samuel?" ,
Mr. Gallup had finished thepitch-
fork testimonial and struck one where
a man had been blown up with a
stump, and he was 'so interested that
he didn't hear her question. She
wept for three or four minutes and
"No, don't go to any unnecessary ex-
pense to lay away my mortal remains,

around in heaven, it won't make no
great difference about my body. When

folded her hands and closed her eyes,
and for ten minutes there was silence.
Then Mr. Gallup yawned again, look-

he rose up to wind the clock and go to
bed he observed:

THE GRAND SCHEMER
A CRISIS COMES AND MAJOR CROFOOT
I MEETS IT JOYFULLY.
BIs Frowning Landlady Presents
Her Badly Belated Bill, and She In
Promptly Taken Into the Universal
[Copyright. 1900, by C. B. Lewis.]
Major Crofoot, grand promoter and
general organizer, had observed signs
of a coming calamity around his board-
ing house. He hadn't sat down with
pencil and paper and figured that it
was three months since he had paid his
landlady a dollar, but in a dim, unde-
fined way he put it at about three. He
hadn't taken half an hour to wonder
how much longer things could run on
tick, but hoped it might be for three
months more. He was living on in a
blissful state of certain uncertainty,
finding fault with the steak and sug-
gesting a change of puddings, when
the demeanor of the landlady warned
him that a crisis was at hand. He was
the man for the crisis. It was at the
dinner table that the notes of the
"WHY SPEAK OF DOLLARS?"
warning bell struck his ear. and when
he had finished his mer.l he rose up be-
fore the other boarders with the digni-
ty of a millionaire and observed:
"Madam the landlady, if not too
much trouble 1 wish you would come
to my room this evening for your
check. I like to balance my books once
The shot told. The landlady's frown
changed to a smile as soft as jelly, and
the three or four boarders who bad
been hinting fait the major was a
deadbeat and would bilk the house
felt a large feeling of awe steal over
them. Half an hour later the woman
knocked at the major's door and found
him seated with his checkbook in front
"My dear woman," he began. as he
motioned for her to sit down, "your
trust and confidence in me are some-
thing sublime-really sublime. I am
not a man given to emotion, but in this
case-in this case"-

"You owe me' tree months' room
rent and board." she said as he paused
to find other woros.
"That Is the case exactly, as I found
to my surprise in footing my ledger
this afternoon. Yes. F'or three long
months I have occupied this room and
sat at your table, and you have not
even hinted at filthy lucre in payment.
I don't exactly remember what Cleo-
patraedid to win Lndying fame. but if
she reposed the sublime confidence in a
man that you have reposed in me I
don't wonder that her name is engrav-
en on the scrolls of time forever more."
"I have been trying to catch you for
the last month, but you have dodged
me." replied the landlady with exceed-
"IiI other words, madam. 1 have been
too wrapped up i gigautic specula-
tions to remember that I owed you a
few dollars. However, the fact re-
mains that you did not worry over my

afraid you'd get your trunk out and

ed the major as he nibbled at the pen-

you were no deadbeat." said the over-
come landlady as she held the check in

plaeed. Let me call your attention to
The fact that this check is made out to

"But what corporation?"

next Monday. Having an instinctive
feeling that you trusted me and wish-
lng to. prove my gratitude In something
beyond words, I have reserved $10,000
worth of stock for you at ground floor
figures. A dividend of 50 per cent on
this stock, which is a low estimate,
brings you in $5,000 per year. All you
need do is to sit with folded hands."
"But I don't want stock in any of
y< ur companies," she protested. "I've
g z. to have money to run m'y"house."
"The object of the company," he ex-
plained. "is to provide music for the

"'Iut about this check?" she insisted.
"A great scheme and in many ways a
noble enterprise. Let us take a city
block, for instance. We will say there
are 200 'families on the block. The
Universal supplies those families with
pianos or organs, zithers, fiddles. harps.,
hand organs., mouth organs, brass
bands, bugles, fifes and drums. From
7 o'clock in the morning to 10 o'clock at
night there is music. No one has time

"But this check."
"You will take it to J. Jordan and de-

you will order two pianos, three fid-

of bagpipes for this house. The effect

"But I thought you were going to
square up," exclaimed the landlady.
"What do I know about your company
or stocks? Whenever I present my
bill, you always dodge and twist."
"In case you do not wish to use the
check to secure stock you can ask Mr.
Jordan to Indorse it over to me. I
will then indorse it to the vice presi-
dent, he will indorse it to the secre-
tary, and the secretary will indorse it
to you. You will then have to be iden-

few days or weeks to obtain the mon-

Meanwhile things go over. Ask your-
self if it is not your duty to help us ele-
vate the moral tone of society? Ask
yourself if it is not better to have $5,-

your life away in a boarding house.
"Can't you give me $10 on account?"
asked the landlady in desperation as
she put the check on the table.
"What! Discount my own paper aft-
er your sublime confidence in me?" he
exclaimed. "Never, my dear woman,
never! You must be paid in full. In-
deed, you have ICbeen paid in full any-
how, and now it only remains for you
to leave me to balance up my cash-
book and write 15 or 20 business let-
ters of a pressing nature. You trusted
me, and you have your reward. Don't
fail to be identified at the bank. If
there should be any trouble, just call
on me. And now good night and pleas-

called the landlady when she found
herself outside the door.

OLD STAGE EFFECTS.
SCENES THAT USED TO THRILL
AUDIENCES YEARS AGO.
A Ludicrous lMishap That Onee
Floored Frank Mayo In the Cli-
max In "Davy CrccLe-lt"-A Crude
Fire Scene That Was Very Popular.
"Great Scott, how a modern audi-
ence would gibe at the :tage effects
that used to thrill folks thirty or so
years ago!" said an old theatrical man-
ager who was in the city recently en
route to Frisco. "Take the famous
wolf scene in *Davy Crockett,' for in-
stance, that made a for,'une for dear
old Frank Mayo. That was consid-
ered one of the most realistic things of
its day, and it stirred audiences to ab-
solutely frantic excitement. You re-
member how it went: Davy and the
heroine have taken refuge in a moun-
tain cabin, and suddenly they hear
a long drawn wail Ow-o-o-o!
Ow-o-o-o-o-o! It sounded like a tom-
cat on a moonlit fence and was emitted
by the 'prop' man, standing inwthe
wings. Davy springs to his feet. IHe
listens with his hand to his ear. The
orchestra plays tremolo. 'The wolves!'
he cries, and the house begins to hold
"Meanwhile the prop man puts on
more steam. The beasts are nearing.
Davy glares around distractedly. Mer-
ciful hevings! He has burned up tile
door bar for fuel! The prop man
howls at the top of his voice. Davy
dashes up his sleeve. He springs to
the door, rams his bare arm through
the empty staples, and two stuffed
wolves' heads are poked suddenly
through a hole at the bottom! Then
the curtain drops, there is more tremo-
loi and it rises again to discover Davy
fainting at the portal with a couple of
streaks of red paint around his good
right arm to show where the staples
pinched. That scene would excite de-
rision today. but it kept the wolf from
Mayo's own door for many a long year.
Incidentally it was responsible for
some ludicrous mishaps.

r'im one occasion, wi le touring
through Iowa. the special scenery was
delayed by a railroad wreck aad1a local
stage carpenter undertook to 'fake up'
the cahin interior. By some mistake
he made the staples several inches too
small, and when Mayo. who was
rather portly, rushed to the rescue he
was horrified to discover that lie could
not get his arm through the irous. iHe
pushed and squirmed and sweat blood.
but it was no go, and as the wolves
were supposed to be advancing on a
dead lope the situation was decidedly
critical. It so happened that the
actress who played the heroine that
season was very spirituelle, not to say
scrawny, and while poor Davy was
still wriggling at the door some gallery
god suddenly piped out: 'Break away,
fatty, and let de lady try" The audi-
ence roared and Mayo signaled for a
"Fire effects are regarded with dis-
favor nowadays." continued the man-
ager, "because if too realistic they are
apt to create a panic in a crowded thea-
ter, but In the old melodramas there
was no danger of mistaking them for
the real thing, and they were great
drawing cards. Back in the early
seventies Joe Murphy, the Irish come-
dian, toured the country in a play
called 'Help,' which contained a fire
scene .that was regarded as the most
remarkable ever produced on the road.
"The curtain rose on a barnlike in-
terior. supposed to represent an opium
den in San Francisco. Presently a
Chinamaon passed an open door in the
back. carrying a lamp, and a momenti
later a crash was heard, indicating that
he had dropped it. A red glow imme-
diately came through the chinks in the
rear wall and grew rapidly lighter
and brighter, while there was 4 sound
of excited footsteps, indistinct s outing
and furniture being dragged acr ss the
floor. All that. occurring out o sight.,
worked the audience to a high 1 itch of
nervous tension. Then smoke began

West Florida Ahead.
Major George R. Fairbanks of Fer-
nandina has calculated the gains in
population shown by the twelfth
census, according to the subdivision
of the State into four grand subdivis-
ions, viz: West Florida, comprising
eight counties west of the Apalachi-
cola river, including Franklin coun-
ty; Middle Florida, comprising nine
counties lying between the Apalach-
icola and Suwannee rivers; East
Florida, comprising thirteen coun-
ties. The result of his calculations
is published' in the Jacksonville
Times-Union and Citizen of Monday.
From Major Fairbanks' statement
it. appears that West Florida has
gained 32,977 inhabitants, without
loss in any county, being nearly 50
per cent (49.77) since 1890; Middle
Florida has gained 24,161, without
loss in any county, being nearly 31
per cent (-q0.74); East Florida: has
gained 44,301, without loss in any
county, being nearly 29 per cent
(28.88); and South Florida's net gain
was 37,147, being nearly 374 per cent
(37.40). Four counties in South
Florida show a decrease in poputla-
t'on, as follows: Lake, 567; Mana-
tee, 4,232 Monroe, 780, and Orange,
1,210; making a total of 6,789:
The largest numercial gain was in

man the ships. The" right under
this bill to contract for twenty-year
bounty will expire at the end of ten
years. During ten years ship-owners
will have the privilege of contract-
ing to receive bounties for twenty
years from the date of the contract;
but ships built after the ten years
have expired will recewe no bounty.
The result will be that in ten years
every American ship `will be under
a bounty contract for the full expec-
tancy of its years of usefulness. New
Ships without bounty can not com-
pete with the subsidized ships, and
therefore no new ships for foreign
trade will be contracted for after
1910. The difficulty above referred
i to is inherent in the bounty scheme
and can not be avoided, making it
almost impossible to discontinue the
system once it has been begpn. This
is one reason why the Republicans
are so anxious to have it inaugurated.
The country is likely to have an-
other case of "plain duty" that comes
to only 15 per cent. of its promise.
