Of River and Harbor Appro0-
priaticns for State of Florida


And Scores Those Who Had Attacked
Him for Alleged Unfairness.

Representative Sparkman of this
di.4tict, defending the Harbor Ap-
pr, priation Bill as reported by the
eoniiittee, of which lie is a member,
from an attack made by several
members of Congress from interior
St Y recently said, in part:
,.A producer needs the lowest
fri -t rates possible, whether he
se s a foreign or a home market,
ar consequently interested be-
y< mea.uie in. the development of
al ev hlrbors and commerce-bear-
irn reams of the country. When,
therefore, we consider the impor-
tance of river and harbor work, the
intimate relations it bears to the
commercial and business growth of
the country, we could certainly. it
seems to me, justify a bill carrying
an amount much larger than that
appropriated by this bill; and we
may expect to see such appropria-
lions going on and increasing until
the neces:-nies of commerce are con-
pletely met. The people will de-
mand it, and we could not resist
those demands here if we would.
But, Mr. Chairman, one or two
members have criticised this bill on
account of the appropriations which
go to the States represented by
members on the committee, or per-
haps it would be more correct to say
that the conmnittee has been thus
criticised, for no one has undertaken
as iet to say that the appropriations
have been unworthily bestowed. The
cry is that the States represented on
the committee have received too
much as compared with those States
not thus represented, and that es-
pecially the districts represented by
members on theeommittee have been
unduly favored. The gentleman
m Washington [Mr. Cush.inan]
esp&eciafty severe on that line,
sand my own State came in for a
are of his invective.
Now, I :-ball not undertake to re-
ly at length to the insinuation that
1m the aggregate the slates repre-
sentvd on the committee received too
much, for that charge was shown to
be inaccurate by my colleague on the
cormni:tee, the getlemnan from New
Yoik (Mr. Alexander). It was dem-
on.strated by him that the 17 states
represented on the committee, receiv-
ing only three-fourths of the 860,-
00N appropriated and authorized,
actually have more than 0 per cent.
of all the commerce of the country,
and that.if commerce alone is to be
considered, then these 17 states are
entitled to even mote than they get
in the bill. This is the way, at least,
it presents itself when aggregates
alone are considered. The same
would no doubt be true if a like te-t
were applied to the individual States.
But, Mr. Chairman, it is with re
guard to the criticisms of myself and
of the state ahich I have the honor
in part to represent on this floor that
I intend to reply more particularly.
If the gentleman will east his eye
over the map of the State of Florida,
he will see a long peninsula extend-
ing from the lower edge of the state
of Georgia way out into the southern
seas, almost to Cuba and to the Ber.
mudas, with a coast line of more than
1,400 miles on straight lines, but it
he were to follow the saoUities a4

the shore line, he would travel ure
than 1,800 miles going from the Per-
dido river, on the west, aroad by
the Tortugas to Fernmana. d ..
On this coastlie he wo bi"d 9

Are of which, naMel, Peincola,

with all thee rivers and harbor* and
all this commerce, receives too much
at the hands of the River and Har-
bor Commhittee ?
But, Mr. Chairman, that is not all..
The-income which the government
derives from F lorida entitldes her to
gpnereus treatment at the hands of
this.body. Fronm all sourced--from
the custom-houses, internal-revenue
d-partment, post offices, etc.,-for
tie year ending December 31 last,
Florida paid about '-2,000,000 into
the government till, and from nmv
own town, the city of Tampa, which
gets only $150,000 in this hill, the
government received for the' same
period the magnificent sum of'about
$1,500,000, or more than was paid
in4o "the National Treasury by the
w ole State of Washington combined'
fu the fiscal year ending June 30,-

Florida receives in this bill, in cash
ard in anthoriz-ttions, a little more
than $1,700000, or about $50,000
per annum, suppo-ing that the cash
ai d the amount authorized can all
l*b spent during the next two years;
so it will be seen that -he does not
get one-half of what she will pay
in,o the National' Treasury during
tha same period of time.
in that connection I wish to ad-
v rt to another matter to which the
g4< tleman alluded. He intimated, least I understood him as inti-
mrting, that I had favored mty dis-
tlct at the expense of the other dis-
trict of the State of Florida. If my
friend will look at the figures, he
w 11 change his mind, for out of the
se enteen hundred and odd thousand
d< lars given to Florida $1,335,<000,
or about three-fourths, goes to the
S41 ond District, represented by my.
c,4league, not counting $2"1,000 ap-
propriated, together with the sum of
$*:5,000 given by the Fifty-fifth
Congress, for the building of a
diydge to be used throughout the
Thus it will be seen that I have
in't favored my distrietr, but have
given to the Second District the
lit i's share of the appropriation, and
that, too, whilst in the First District,

that district does not receive any
smure than its 'just. dues,, even if it
cotld l be claimed that it has received
mnre in this bill.
When, too, the gentleman stated,
as-one of the reasons for condemn-
ing the bill, or the members of the
Committee on Rivers and Harbors,
that one river, viz, the Antlote, in
in district, could not be found on
timi latest edition of Rand & Mc-
N lly's map. Well, Mr. Chairman,

in Washington, some days aia.u-
thorizing a bridge to be built acrzess
the Choctawhatchie river. Tled of-
ficial announcement was not made,
however, until yesterday and thiat-i
why no mi nation has been made of-
the matter before. This means a
saving of 116 miles in the distance
from Montgomery to River Junc-
tion. From here to River June-
tion, by way of Flomaton and Pen.
sacola, the distance is 324 miles,
while from here to River Junctitn,I
by way of Andalusia and Genea
the distance is 208 miles, a saving of
116 miles. From Geneva to Mari-.

Speaking of the matter a promi-
nent railroad man said yesterday:
"I can make but one deduction from
it-that the Louisville and Nashville
is trying to get a shorter route to
the Land of Flowers. The claim is
made that the line by Geneva and
Marianna will be ninety. miles
shorter to Jacksonville than the
present route from Montgomery,
over the Plant System. Now, th*'
supposition is that this is being do e

and interior Floiida. It looks to
me as if this means a close traffic ar.
rangetnent between the Louisville
and Nashville and Seaboard, and itf
the Southern gets hold of the Plant
I think this is undoubtedly what will
happen. It would not surprise me
in the least, next winter to see the
limited trains from the West by way
of the Chicago and East Illinois go
direct to iiver Junction over the
Louisville and Nashville, and from
there to Jacksonville over the Sea-
board instead of from Montaontery
to Jacksdonille and St. Augustine
over the Plant as at present."

F. C and P. Tax Case.

United States Court, known as the
F. C. & P. Ra:ilroid Tax Case, in-
volves the collection of 96ti,11.69

the years 1879, 1880, 1881. A levy
upon the said railroad was made in
beh ilf of the State in September, A.
D. 1892, and since that time it has
been up on appeal three times before
the Florida Supreme Court.
Each time the State won a decision
against the railroad. The last de-
cision was renolered in Jane, 1900,
and from this judgment of the State
Supreme Court the railroad company

Washington, Febrnary 16-The
sugar trust has scored again; its h4
previous victory having bee' when
it persuaded McKinley 'to shift on.
the Porto Rican tariff question. This
time the result will be more serious.
Under the Dingley law, when any
torrigis country grants a bounty to
sugar grown" within its borders, the
United States lays a countervailing
duty equal to the bounty ont that
sugar if imported into the Uitited
States. Such duties have been im-
posed on German, French and liol-
land sugars. Russia, which hap re-
cently begun to export sugar gave-
no bounty and has been exempted&
from such taxation, a fact that
caused much discontent in the
European countries just named. This,
however, would have been of4ittle
importance, had not the sugar jrus
also found that its interests wo 4dbe
injured if Russia were allowed'
develop her trade in that mat'rl
Some Rpssian sugar comes overlfr,
but most of it comes in such a icoo-
dition that no further refining isineo-
essary, thus entering directly into
competition with the trust. I ence
the latter set to work to devise )ome
excuse for barring it out, and with
the present subservient admitnistra-
tion to back it, easily foundione.
Russia charges an internal revenue
tax on sugar grown there anil re-
mits this when the sugar is expiorted.
The trust argued that this remis-ion
amounted to a bounty, and succeeded
in per-uading Secretary Gage to irm-
pose a tai equal to Uussiai internal
revenue levy. The Secretary evi-
dently failed to consider that, if this

he could occupy each day's seuaiou
for a week, but the meet common
-opinion is that a month would not
fatigue him f the subject were sui-
ciently broad. Even this limit may
be too contracted. The test to ita
full has never been made, and may
never be. It is aid, however, that
though there-are several gifted great-
endurance orators ready to talk on
the shipping bill, the Louisiana Seea-
tor could readily consume the
remaining days of the season
himself if there were need for it.

Clsenme CrItielm of 0 or Alphabet.
The high class Chinaman, speaking
through his Interpreter, was giving the
eminent American visitor his Impres-
sions of the English language.
"I cannot understand." bhe said. "how
anybody ever finds time to learn it.
Take that singularly formed letter in
your alphabet, for instance, the letter
'g.' What an awkward and 1ll shaped
character it Is! What is the signifl-
cance of that little curling projection
at the upper end of it? I have never
seen anybody who could tell me. Then,
again, when the learner has familiar-
Ized himself with that letter and can
recognize it at sight he learns that It ie
only a part of a word and that It enters
into the composition of thousands of
words. It has different pronunf-.atlons
and sometimes ls'not pronounced .t al!.
being entirely silent. Now.- when you'
see one of our Chinese characters you
know at once what it is. It is a won-
der to me that your people do not dis-
card the cumbersome forms of 'your
written language and learn our simpler
and more easily understood system."
The eminent American could only
bow his bead in humiliation and prom-
Ise to bring the matter before the edu-
cational authorities of his native land.

"Yes; it would be a queer place." was
the answer. "If the product was like

there was-never a barrel made in the

men who work there could head a bar-

strapping cases of merchandise after
they have been packed. The large

Botels and Trained NM es.
Trained nurses are not welcome
gntsts In New York hotels, and in fact
In many they are expressly forbidden
to appear In the dining rooms in their
uniforms. The hotel keepers object to
their presence in their working dresses
because any Indication of the existence
of disease in a hotel is disadvanta-
geous. Under these circumstances they
are compelled to go through as much
preliminary labor before they go to,
meals as if they had been Invited under

The boari-ty of e6mmon laborers
or farm and other *ork i felt and
-ommented on in many other sec-
tions than Mad Ue llorids, it seems.
The present situation- with respect
.to this class of workmen at GCoium-
bas, causes the Savannah Morning
News to make the following edito-
ial remarks in a recent issue:
- "For some. time there has been a
V arcity of labor fort the farms, the
4, Steamboats and the mills, neverthe-
less, the streets are filled with able-
bodied colored loaers, who should
be at work, but who prefer to have
.their meals handed rout of back doors
of white men's houses by the colored
cooks, or gain a livelihood by pilfer-
ing and committing petty crimes.
Columbus, by the way, is not the
only municipality thus afflicted.
There is probably not 'a community
in the South that has not its element
of colored loafers and "Pports," who
make nine-tenths #f the business for
the police and theicourts.
lIn connection iLth this vagrancy
question, Justice Lore, of Delaware,
is a strong advocate of the whipping
post for that offere,. as well as for
wife-beating an# several petty
Crimes. Justice Lore says the whip-
ping post is a most effective instru-
ment for ridding a' community of
,undesirable population. In forty
years of his experience, he says, one-
third of the criminals of Delaware
have been non-resident. When-
ever these have :been sentenced to
a be whipped, he has not heard of a
single instance .f one returning to
Columbus, we are further in-
formed by the News, is to have a
of course, to get relief by that
action. It is doubtful, however,
if it will succeed. That class
of colored people who make night
hideous with their brawls and sere-
'ades, and live on "hand outs" from
the white man'sback door, have be-
come so hardened, from a moral
standpoint, that the light sentences
of confinement for vagrancy have no
terrors for them. It means simply a
few days rest, well fed, and with
better sleeping quarters than they
are accustomed to-furnished with-
out price. Then, at the expiration
of the term, they go back to their:
Sold haunts something of heroes, re-'
ceived with open arms and more
lfirmly entrenched behind their breast-i
work of vagrancy than ever.
Judge Lore's theory, however,
presents a remedy that, in the opin-
ion of the TaLLAnassman, would be
far more effective. Of course there
are those in every community-among
all classes, conditions and races-

who will throw up their hands in
holy horror at the bare suggestion
of the whipping post, even as a pun-
ishment for vagrancy avd wife beat-
ing. They will exclaim, "barbarian-
ism" with all the vehemence and
agonized despair, of one possessed
of an evil apparition but what matters
that? ELcept the brutal flog-
ging of the "better half," which
the Judge would have punished
in the same way, nothing a-
vors more of barbarianism than
the deliberate execution -of- a de-
termination to live by the sweat of
another's face, by filching the sub-
stance of a hard day's. work via the
back door, through' the connivance
and assistance of an unworthy, but
trusted servant.

unending torrent of troubles into

What a solace that would be only
those can imagine who have had a
grief that no one seemed interested
in hearing recounted. .
Nothing that has happened for a
long time has stirred the hearts of
Tailahabeeans more than the sad
intelligence of the death of Prof.
William S. Whiteman, of East Nash-
ville, Tenn. lie was not, at the
time of his death, one of us, but he
had so recently departed for his
childhood's home, full of life, full of
the!future that seemed to stretch
out over long years before him, that
the tragic news came like a thunder
clap from a clear sky, and scores of
hearts, among all classes, conditions
and stages of life, feel a heaviness
that is inexplicable.
Hle came among us only a few
years ago a stranger, having been
elected to a professorship 'in West
Flprida Seminary upon recom.
mendations. Quiet io a marked de-
gree, but painstaking, hardworking
aiid enthusiastic, be soon won the
friendship and admiration alike of
faculty and students at the Semi-
nary. This accomplished, his work
was of course easy; and likewise
the conquest of friendship through-
out the city.
While enthusiastically a teacher,
and one of ability, too, he recogniz-d
the deplorable fact that the require-
ments of the profession were so dis-
proportionately greater than the
salaries paid, that it was an uninvit-
ing field for one inspired with am-
bitions to rise in the world, and
prepared himself for the legal pro-
fession-without, however, neglect-
ing any duties at the Seminary. He
passed a highly creditable examina-
tion, was admitted to practice in the
courts' of this State, declined an-
other year at the Seminary and re-
Rurned to his native city to practice.
SOccasional letters to friends here
kept them informed of his gratify-
ing success; then, all at once they
ceased coming forever, and a few.
*days later, sudden as the message
that called him into eternity, came
the news of his death, which oc-
.curred Wednesday night last.
Found dead in his bed, the message
read, from appoplexy. Even tie
end was quiet--so much so that no
one knew, until'his aged father went
to investigate his long absence from
breakfast, and found him cold in
death, having passed away many
hours before.
Prof. Whiteman was only about
twenty-seven years of age, and
seemed to have a bright future and
a long life of perfect health before
him. Its sudden termination is in-
deed sad. "Overwork, I believe
was the cause". suggested a friend

yesterday, while discussing the mel-
ancholy event.
When the inspired writer de-
clared in Holy Writ that it ib just as
"impossible for a rich man to enter
the Kingdom of Heaven" as it is for
"a camel to go through the eye of a
needle," he certainly must have had
in view the transition from mortal-
ity to immortality, through which
no worldly possessions can be car-
ried, or else he had overlooked the
possibilities of the future. These
conclusions are reached after reading
an account of a recent occurrence in
the city of New York.
Pastor Keller, of a modest New
Jersey charge was recently accused
of a vile assault upon a lady parish-
ioner and the latter's hngband shot
and dangerously wounded the pastor
about the face, destroying one eye,
seriously endangering the sight of
the, other, and almost succeeded in
taking his life. Subsequent events

resolutions of symp-thy, d cla;rel
their faith in their co-worker
(Keller), and called meeting to
shout forth eulogistic praises of the
dying man, ths sympathetic and
practical man of great wealth issued
orders to the stricken pas-
tor's companions and friends
to employ the most skilled
occulists and physicians to restore
the sight aid save the life and then
secure the most learned limbs of the
law to restore the good name of the
poor man.
To defray expenses they were au-
thorized to draw against his immense
fortune-to any extent that was
deemed necessary.
No doubt there are those who, be-
cause the alleged offense was against
a woman, will denounce the action of
the dean. It is a strong card for
those who Oesire to play to the gal-
leries. But all through the interview
the great philanthropist gave out
about the case a few days ago, he
handles the woman's name with all
the tenderness that characterizes the
speech of a man who entertains great
respect for the sex. She is historical,
he says in effect, with periodical ab-
berrations of the mind, but I believe
honest. The husband, he continued,
took advantage of this misfortune to
satisfy a grudge. To save the de.
fenseless man in this case is a Chris-
tian act worthy a great man.
A report has been circulated from
Tampa to the effect that Governor
Jennings had leased the State con-
victs for a sum considerably less
than.had been offered by a Tampa
firm. This is an error. There ha,
been some sort of a pow-wow abo it
the convicts, full details of which we
have been unable to learn, but 'rLO
lease has been consummated, and
from what we can learn none will 6e
,made uptil the Legislature acts upon
the report provided for by the last
session of that body and under which
a, commission composed of Hons. E.
S. Crill, of Palatka, J. W.Watson, of
Kissimmee, and J. T. Bernard, of this
city, was appointed. The above
named gentlemen are all here today,
but will file no report until the Leg:
islature meets. They are delegated
with authority to -make full investi-
gation and report the "most humane,
practicable and profitable" methbd
of disposing of the convicts, and
being men of ability, conservatism
and wide'influence throughout the,
State, it is fair to assume that their
utterances will have great weight in
the disposition of the convicts. The
present lease runs, however, until
December 81st of this year.

Mrs. Carrie Nation, not satisfied
with operating in a small State like
Kansas, started out with the avowed
intention of closing every saloon in
the world, if it took a lifetime to

complete the job. She struck Mayor
Carter Harrison's towp, Chicago,
gave him a piece of her mind for
criticising her saloon-smashing esca-
pades, and promised. to returaat
an early date to attend to the saloon
keepers in the Windy City. She
then went back to stand trial in
Kansas for depredations upon saloon
property, and is now being held in
confinement because the court
thinks she j cra y. She may not
be crasy but it is perhaps just as
?well to odI her until a little of that
nes oozes out. Thea,

A A a1 Death.
On Saturday, the 9th instant, the
an ,el voices front heaven were heard,
an I Jlittle Kathleen Carpenter, the
br ght little five-vear-old child of
M-. and Mrs. R. B. Carpenter, an-
siered the summon, which called
hl(r to the -home beyond," and now
h'r dear little voice, so sweet to
memory, is forever stilled, but we
know it has joined the angel voices
i the better world, singing praises
u to Him who said, ".Suffer little
el ildren to come--unto me, and for-
bi them not."
Little Kathleen was a sweet,
b-ight chdil. Although one of
tender years, she t.-k Aquite an in-
twrest ini her Sunday school, -and
wats a most regular attendant. Al-
ways cheerful, bright and happy,
s inbeams went wherever she was.
and she made many frienwis, not
alone among those of her own age,
but among older persons. She was
an exceedingly sweet and bright
little child,l and that htir dear little
fe should be taken, when there are
others that seem to us couli- be
more easily spared, is but another
evidence of the mysterious work of
gn omnipotent hand. At the time
of her death her mother, too, was
very ill, and up to this writing she
hag not sufficiently recovered to
warrant An advice of her little girl's
death. It is very, very sad, indeed,
and the sympathy of an appreciative
community goes out to the family in
this their sad hur of bereavement.
Words are inadequate to tell in a
measurable sense, the force with
which this affliction goes to the hearts
of all who' knew this dear little
child. And to have been at her
little bedside and heard her call for
her older sister, that she may re-
peat her prayer, "Now I lay me
down to sleep," to her for the last
time, was a scene imbued with a
pathos that will linger in the heart,
and perhaps recall a tear away in
the distant future, when this little
spirit shall have long since been at
home with Jesus.
To Beautify Soldiers' Graves.
The Annie Jackson Chapter of
the United Daughters of the Con.
federacy gave a lunch and supper in
the vacant store north of Schraler
& Balkeom's on the 14th inst., with
gratifying success. The net receipts
amounted to *4b.90..!
SMuch of the success is attributed
to the popularity of [the cause, viz:
the marking and beautifying of the
graves of Confederae Soldiers laid
te rest in our city ce netery.
This work will p obably be com-
menced at once, wi I the hope of
completing it in th near future, as
the Chapter 'has en promised a
lecture during the approaching ses-
sion of the Legislal are, by the hero
of the "Natural Bri e" battle, Gen-
eral Miller.
Should the same interest be mani-

feasted in the lecture that was sub-
stantially expressed In the lunch and
supper, the Daughters can hope for
an early fulfillment 'of their wishes
in regard to the graves of our dead
The TALLAHASSEaAN shares with
their friends throughout this section
the hope that thesp noble women
will not be disappointed in their ex-
pectations. It is worthy caune;

hope that my gentleman was from

though there was no one else in the

As the time of departure drew very
near I hoped fervently that no one elso
would attempt to enter our carriage.
but almost at the last minute an old
gentleman with a superabundance of
beard and hair came to the door and
peered in. As, however, my esteemed
relative greeted him with a cloud of
smoke he stepped back quickly. mut-
tered something about "smoking car-

Exquisitely sweet and cool -in toheroft

that a big military looking matv who

-When we arrived at Port Said. I
made one of Miss Hurst's shore going
Iarty. I say Miss Hurst's because she
seemed the planet round which we
lesser satellites revolved, though Ma-
jor Coghlan was. of course, the active
leader of the expedition. He marshaled
us in line, cast a severe military eye
down our ranks and then gave the or-
der to march and at the head of his un-
soldierlike detachment led us through
the town.
A wonderful'fellow. the major, but
his Incessant chatter wearied me. aqd
while be and my uncle were trying-
their luck at roulette I stole away and.
joining Miss Hurst. who was standing
near the door. suggested that we
should pursue our Investigations alone.
She hesitated -for a moment, then smil-
ed. and together we walked along. ex-
patiating upon the novelty of our sur-
roundings. though the novelty was
more mine than hers. as she had been
ashore here during her voyage from
Austral'* '
"But things are different now." she
said. "My father was with us then."
It was the tst. time I had heard her
-willingly so*ak of him, and I noted
the tone of utter sadness in her voice.
I longed to tell her that L too, had lost
father and mother. only I dared not
mention how.
"I have beard that he died very sud-
denly." I usa. for I was Interested
deeply In anything that Interested her.
"Yes." she answered. and hot as the
day was I saw her shudder.
"I am so scrry."
She .tarted. Her eyes sought mine
and rested there.
"You did not know him?"
"No. but I am sorry for your sake.*
"'hanks." Then she added In a low
tone which was full of meaning. "You
would be more sorry If you knew all."
We wandered a little farther on with-
out speaking. both being. I take It.
somewhat embarrassed or preoccupied
with thought Then. as we stopped at
the corner of a. street to view some
wares In a window, an Arab approach

sequlously. I turned sharply to the
fellow with a "Well, what islt?" but
Instead of replying he presented Miss
Hnrat with ab letter. salaamed again
and without speaking walked off.
The girl. holding the letter in her
band, made no attempt to open It. but
instead turned an Inquiring pair of
eyes to mine and murmured: i
'"Why abquld he bring me this letter?
I don't know anybody here."
"Hadn't you better open it?"
She looked at the letter and then
again at me. ir'movement proclaiming
the utmost nervousness,. then with an
effort she tore the envelope. 1. ap In

That was but one of many long con-

mpetuaity of youth I flung down my
ge to the redoubtable warrior, much
o the amusement of the other passen-
who Invariably spoke of us as the

little way. The major and I nevrr fur-

and know that we were cut off from all
communication with our fellows. No
one could barm us here. There was no

might disappear. We were alom, upon
the waters, and I sometimes sighed ai

of abject terror, therefore It must have

gravity. I cursed the shortness of our
friendship, which rendered .me to her
practically an unknown quantity.
That it was anything of which she
personally had the slightest cause to
be ashamed was a thought I never-
for one moment entertained. You see,
I had embarked upon a venture, and I
whipped my faith Into obedience.
A little while, later on I met my un-
cle, Major Coghlan and one or two oth-

of Miss Hurst's adventutfe. Jim's face
underwent many changes as hbe listen
"Well. that's very quee." he said. "I
suppose you have no idea what the let
ter contained?"
"Not the remotest. I oply know that
the reading of it gave her such a shoc-k
that she almost fainted."
That his thoughts flew at once to the
society was painfully evident. I saw
It in his face. and It awakened no sur
prise,. for there was no other direction
In which they could fly. My own had
taken a similar course. only to be
brought back with a Jerk. What pos-
sible connection could there be between
this girl and those yellow fiends? Of
course it was ridiculous, but my asso-
ciation of the society with everything
that was mysterious and terrifying
showed what a hold It had obtained
over the imagination.
"Very. very curious." he muttered,
but he did not otherwise voice his sus-
picions. He was as'much ashamed as
I of admitting the awful power of the
society, and it was rather singular
how we eschewed that which was up-
permost in our minds. *
We went aboard as soon as the sail-
ors had finished washing down. and
shortly after we had begun our Jour
ney through the canal I was pleased to
see Miss Hurst come up on deck. My
solicitude immediately drove me to her
side. where. In answer to my many
questions. she Informed me that she
was now quite recovered from the
faintness which had so Suddenly as-
sailed her. and she begged me to say
nothing of It. And In many ways ahe
sought to apologize for her strange be-
havlor. even going so far as to suggest
that the mysterious letter contained
nothing which warranted such a com-
plete collapse on her part. to all of
which I listened with due deference.
but I thought that even her most
vehement protestations betrayed her

tone of fear in her voice which had
almost a shuddering sound.

"Very. But you would not under.
"I would try hard to understand any-

"Thank you. Mr. (ray. This is some-
thing quite different from anything
you ever heard of or Imagined."
I helped her Into the boat and stood
watching until I saw her mount the
ship's gangway and disappear. Then
I turned about and retraced my steps
toward the bishops.
My mind was full of apprehension on
her behalf. What did. bshe mean by
saylipg that this affair of the letter re-
ferred to something quite different
from anything I bad ever beard of or

I have heard it said, Mr. Chair-'

is everywhere toward the cheapen-

But, sir, her people merit some
consideration at the hands of. Con-

auythine. The State has been swept

production of the largest porti on of
Ilotida has been the orange, in
*whli h industry no State or country
in the world excelled her.
LMillions of dollars had been in-
vesht d in this industry alone, but the
frosts came, and in a single night it
has been estimated that more than
$25,000,000 of property was de-
stroyed. In numerous' instances the
hard-earned accumulations of a life.

Pioneer spirit which braved the sav-
aige in the early days of Florida',
history, which met calmly and un-
flinching y (he dangers and har dships
of frontier life; which cleared the
forests, builded homes, and planted
the garden, orchard and farm, until
no land was more inviting than theirs,
came to the rescue of her people inl
this the day of adversity, and, with-
out a dollar of outside aid, with
naught but their indomitable will
and the wonderful resources of that
great State, they went to work to
mend their shattered fortunes, with
