Asa B. Clark and Julian Howard for
the negative. The judges decided
in favor af the negative, by a' vote

Washington February 9. Accord-
ing to present indication, Congress
is preparing to obviate the necessity
of and extra session by adopting a
resolution authorizing the President
to withdraw the United States army
from Cuba and turn the island over
to its own people, as soon as certain
conditions are inserted in the new
Constitution of the island. These
conditions include grants of naval
stations and formal consent to submit
the exercise of she debt raining and
treaty making powers of the new
Government to the supervision of
the United States. In other words,
the Republicans seem to have about
made up their minds that they can
do by. indirection what they cannot
do by direction; they hold that they
cannot amend the Cuban Constitu-
tion but they insist that they can
compel the Cubans to amend it as
this country may desire. This is
certainly amazing in view of the
following resolution unanimously
adopted by Congress and signed by
President McKinley:- "That the
United States hereby disclaim any
disposition or intention to exercise
sovereignty, jurisdiction or control
over said island, except for the paci-
fication thereof, and assert their die-
termination when that is completed
to leave the government and con-
trol of the island to its people. Under
this resolution, it is difficult for any
honest mnan to see what either Con-
gress or the President has to do with
the matter, further than to make
sure that "pacification" has been
brought about. The position of the
Democrats in Congress, therefore,
is that the President should with-
draw from the ixnd the moment a
stable Goverunmelt has bji. estab-

Such a lawyer wag John Marshall.
While at the bir he had a supreme
regard for Judiciary. To him the
court was a civic sanctuary where
l.iw is adiinis-tered by clean and
spotless hands, where virtue is
triumphant and guilt is punished,
where rapacity is stayed, ambition
checked, executives curbed, Legisla-
tures restrained, Conristitutions up-
hetil; where incense as ever a'cending
from the altars of right and the
candles of liberty never go out.*
His love of literature and poetry
was marked and hlis opinions are
often graced with exqubile bits
of rhetoric. lie said of po-
e.try in a letter to his friend,

Tbe ame of so great a man as Mr.
Chief, Justice Marshall is however
one that needs no eulogy other thin
the effulgence of 'its own fame.
Search the biographies of the gea'
lawyers and jurists of the world and
you will find none that surpassed, I
think none that approached him in
talents and power.
A hundred years have gone since

State Seminary Notes.
The Normal DepartmentVill open
next Monday two weeks, March 4th.
Indications are that there will be
seventy-five or one hundred teachers
from all parts of the State in attend-
Hon. L. W. Buchholz, a man of
wide experience as a teacher and for
twelve years County Superintendent
of Hillsborough c,,unty, will be
alded to the faculty during the
Spring Normal, and will hold the
position of Principal of the Teachers'
Department. Prof. Buchholz is very
popular among County Superin-
tendents and other school officials
and teachers throughout the State,
and will no doubt be an inducement
for many to come to the Seminary.
The enrollment is growing nearly
every week. Among the recently
new students are Mr. II. M. Whar-
ton, of Virginia; Miss Fannie M;an-
ning, Manning!on; Miss ELhel Baker,
St. Andrew's Bay, etc.
The officers elected at the semi-
annual election of the Platonic De.
bating Society are as follows: Paul
Carter, president; Clyle Evans, vice-
president; John McDougal, secre-
tary; Flagg Itawls, sergeant-at-arms.
The general average for the first
term just ended is said to be uinusu-
ally good, a larger proportion of
students reaching the "pass mark"
than usual. A greater interest
among students seems to be taken in
all the departments of instruction
than is usually seen by an outside
observer. Tdis is a healthy sign for

Honesty la Reference to PareMt,
Child and Teacher.
Honesty in all things is the only
safeguard for the boy's future. The
dishonest boy will, as certainly as the
sun shines, develop into the dishon-
est man. It has been said that
*'honesty is the best policy." The
writer must have meant to convey
the idea that an honest life was the
best life to live. Without this in-
terpretation the phrase means noth-
ing, for when honesty becomes a
policy, it becomes dishonesty, and
when a man leads a politic life he
lives an insincere one, and insincerity
is the synonym of dishonesty, for the
synonyms of "politic" are, artful,
crafty, cunning, shrewd, wary, wily.
The definition of the word itself is,
-Sagacious in devising and carrying
out a plan; pursuing one's ends with
prudence rather than principle." Q.
A. Brownson, in "The Convert,"
says: "Almost the only blunders I
ever committed in my life, was when
I studied to be politic and prided
myself upon my diplomacy," and
Cudworth says of Plato that when-
ever he spoke of the gods plurally,

It is something of a question whether
the War Department will -dare to
sustain ,General MacArthur in aId
action of banishing Editor Rice for
maligning an aroy officer. The ar-
ticle on which the action was biaed
has been received in this city and n-'
tain sabsolut' ly nothing that the most
ardent advocate of Leese Majeste
could consider "treasonable." It
simply criticized the actions of the;
port officer and charged him with
corruption-a charge punishable, if
false, as criminal libel. Senator
Teller has 'secured the adoption of a
resolution calling on the Secretary of
War for information on the subject.
Speaking of the matter, Mr. Teller
said that he did not wonder that
Mice was defiant, knowing that there
was no law justifying his expulsion.
He did not know whether Rice's
paper had been suppresoed, but he
had been credibly informed that four
newspapers had been suppressed in
Luzon by the military authorities.
Mr. Teller spoke of the proceeding
as one of importance to all, for Mr.
Rice was a citizen of the United
States and an offence against him
was an offence against every other
citizen of this country.
Florida Health Officer.
The people of Florida are deeply
interested in a subject now under
discussion, and great interests are
involved in the immediate removal
of a misapprehension under which
some seem to suffer. It is asked can
the health officer retain his position
while sitting as member of the legis-
lature from Monroe county? Since
our law forbids one man to hold two
offices at the same time, we are driven
to ask. What is an office within the
meaning of, the law?
"Then it becomes apparent that
all difficulty has vanished with the
definition. The health officer is but
an employee or agent of the board;
he holds no commission from the
state, and his salary is paid throng
the board; he reports to the board
and is responsible only to it. Doc-
tor Porter, by many years of service,
has so magnified his office that it
looms to huge proportions before the
public eye, but it is the man and not
the position that fills the popular
heart and mind. Yet he is no state
official within the meaning of the
statute, he is debarred by no law
from holding any office, elective or
appointive under our constitution,
and he is only a private citizen among
us, save as he is subject to the rules
and regulations of the state health
"With Doctor Porter's ability and
past service as health officer we all
are acquainted-we allknow him-
voicing the sentiment and desire of
the whole people, we demand that
he retain his position, protesting
against all question of this because
all that has been said is but tne effect
of misapprehension of the law. It is
possible we have some among Doc-
tor Portor's professional brethren as
able, because in the course of time we
must depend on one of them to take
his place, but even that worthy will
be without the present official's ex-
perience and on this account alone
could not command the implicit con-
idence of all who might be brought'
into contact with the board.
"Therefore we ask in the name of
