to the city to be Incarcerated. The peo-
ple upoawthe streets became more and
more excited. They began to talk
about mobbing the colored man when
he arrived. Win. H. Seward, who lived
then in that city, appeared upon the
street and counceled moderation, coun-
celed the people to wait and see
whether the man was really guilty of
the crime or not, and permit him to
have a legal trial. But the people pro-
tested. He was guilty, they said, and
must be disposed of. Mr. Seward in-
sisted and they incarcerated Freeman
in jail. It soon became known that
Mr. Seward had"-volunteered to defend
the negro when he was put on trial,
and indignation rose against him, but
that far-seeing man, that statesman,
saw that there was an object lesson to
the world as to the proper disposition
*of that case, and for two long months
that trial went on, with Seward de-
Iending the negro. I occupied some
tree weeks in obtaining a jury, and
sat by during almost the entire pro-
ceedings of that trial and listened to
.the defense that Mr. Seward inter-
posed. Not that he cared anything for
-the negro, but he wanted to maintain
the law giving every man a trial, and
to put down mob violence.
"This trial here is a great object les-
son to the world. Here is a case where
a man has stricken down the beloved
President of this country, in broad
daylight, in the presence of hundreds
of thousands of spectators. If there
was ever a case that would excite the
anger, the wrath of those who saw it,
this was one, and yet under the advice
of the President, 'Let no one hurt him,'
he was taken, confined in our prison,
indicted, put upon trial here, and the
case is soon to be submitted to you as
to whether he is guilty of the crime
charged against him. That, gentlemen,
speaks volumes in favor of the orderly
conduct of the people of the city of
"Here was a man occupying an ex-
alted position, a man or irreproachable
character; he was a man who had
come here to assist us in promoting
the prosperity of our great exposition.
And he was shot down while holding
a reception.
"His death has touched every heart
in this community and in the whole
-world, and yet we sit here-and quietly
consider whether this man was re-
sponsible for the act he committed.
That .question is one you rare called on
to decide.
"The law presumes the defendant
innocent until he is proven guilty, and
-we start with the assumption that the
defendant was not mentally respons-
ible for he crime he committed. We
b]ave not been able to present any evi-
,(ence upcn our part. The defendant
ias even refused oa almost every oc-
casion to talk -with his counsel. He
has not aided us, so we have come
here unaided to consider this impor-
tant question. But I know there is in
every human being a strong desire tu
live. _Death is a spectre that we all
dislike to meet, and here is this de-
feadant, without having any animosity
y against our President, without any
-p ~oual motive, so far as we can see,

law, however, says that you must con-
sider the circumstances and see if he
was In his right mind or not when he
committed the deed. If you find he
was not responsible, you would aid
in lifting a great cloud from the minds
of the people of this country. If the
beloved President uad met with a rail-
road accident and been killed, our
grief could not compare with what
it is now. If you find that he met his
fate through the act of an insane nan,
it is the same as though he met it
by accident. I had the profoundest re-
spect for President McKinley. I
watched him in CongrEss and during
his long public career, and he was one
of the noblest men God ever made.
His policy we care nothing about, but
it always met with my profoundest
respect. His death was the saddest
blow to me that has occurred in many
Judge Lewis was crying when he
finished, and the eyes of many of those
In the courtroom were filled with tears.
Judge Titus then arose and said that
Judge Lewis had so completely cover-
ed the ground that it seemed entirely
unnecessary for him to reiterate it,
ind he would therefore rest.
At 3.10 District Attorney Penney be-
ean summing up. He spoke in a clear,
rell-modulated voice, and every word
could be heard in every part of the
room. He said:
"It is hardly possible for any man
to stand up and talk about this case
without the deepest emotion. It was the
most awful tragedy that ever came
upon the world.
"We have shown you how this de-
fendant stood in the Temple of Music
that afternoon and shot down our be-
loved President We have shown you
how he deliberated on and planned
this awful crime. We have shown you
how he attended anarchist and social-
ist meetings, at which were sown in
'his heart the seeds of this terrible

sible and that if he was insane he

every man is sane until proven in-
sane. Evidence tending to prove that
the prisoner was insane has not been
forthcoming. It has been proven that
he was the agent of the crime, and
there should be no question in your
minds as to the responsibility of the

play. Counsel for the prisoner and
myself have endeavored to eliminate
all sensationalism from this case. It
is not my intention to indulge in ex-
tended remarks. You undersianu the
responsibility resting. upon you. The
counsel has said there should be no
lynch law in this State. He has told
you that the people of Buffalo are to
be commended for the spirit displayed
by them since the murder of the Pres-
ident, Lut the law must be vindicated.
This terrible thing has happened be-
cause there are people in this country
who, unless they feel the irresistible
force of prompt and proper action in
this case, will cause something awful
LO happen to our beloved counLry.
"Think, gentlemen, of that grand
man who stood but a few days ago in
the Temple of Music, and how he came
from the lowly walks of life, how he

whole world, and it should b6 mad-
known that no man can come here and
commit such a dastardly act and not
receive the full penalty of the law.
Justice White began his charge to
the Jury at 39. He arose from his
s-at and stepped to the side of the
bench nearest the Jury box. He said:
"Gentlemen of the Jury: Ii this case
the defendant has acknowledged his
guilt Such an acknowledgment in
such ircumstances cannot go to the
jury or the court. The law requires
that the defendant charged with such
a crime must be tried. The law says
that all the facts must be observed
and reviewed by you. The law guar-
antees that the defendant shall have a
fair trial by twelve men, Impartial tgd
fair, capable of taking the testntwnyy
of the trial, and give it thorough con-
sideration. If, when all the circum
stances of the case are considered by
you, there still exists in your minds
a reasonable doubt that the defendant
is guilty you cannot find this man
guilty. The people have submitted
evidence tending to show that this de-
fendant committed this crime; they
have given evidence tending to show
that it was premeditated. If you are
satisfied that there was premeditation,
and, if, in accordance with the pre
mediation and design, these shots were
fired, then the defendant is guilty of
the crime of murder in the first de-
"The jurors are bound to sift, com-
pare and examine all the evidence, and
if, in their minds there is any doubt
as to the defendant's guilt, they are
bound to acquit the defendant. If there
is no doubt in your mind, then you are
bound to bring in a verdict of con-
viction. I am very glad that up to
the present stage of this lamentable
affair, so far as the jurors andmi the peo-
pl of this city are concerned, there
has been shown that respect for the
law that is bound to teach a valuable
object lesson. The defendant has been
given every advantage of counsel. I
ueplore any incitement to violence, and
the man who is ready to go out and
commit a crime because some other
man had committed a crime is as
guilty as the latter, and his act just
as reprehensible. It is proper Luat I
should define the crime of murder in
the first and second degrees and man-
slaughter in the first and second de-
grees. If the defendant, on September
6, did wrongfully assault, shoot or
wound William McKinley by means
alleged in the indictment, and if the
act was committed with premeditated
design, and if the act was the sole and
approximate cause of death, and if the
defendant knew he was doing wrong
at the time, the defendant was guilty
of murder in the first degree.
"If the act was not premeditated, he
was guilty of murder in the second de-
gree. If the shot was fired accidentally
and without premeditation, he is
guilty of manslaughter in the first de-
gree. It is not necessary for me to dis-
cuss the question of manslaughter in
the second degree in this case."
Justice White then commended the
jurors for their patience during the
trial, and ordered them to retire and
&,ring in a verdict.
Just before they did so, however,
District Attorney Penney requested the
Judge to charge the jury that the law
presumes every individual sane unless
proven otherwise, and the court said to
them: "The law presumes the defend-
ant in this case sane."
Lawyer Titus also asked the court to
charge the jury: "That if they were
satisfied from the evidence that at $he
time of the committal of the assault
the defendant was laboring under a
such a defect of reason as not to know
the quality of the act, or that it was
wrong, he was not responsible, and the
jury must acquit"
"I so charge," said the Judge.
The jury retired at 3.51 to consider
the evidence. The scene in the court-
room then became dramatic in the ex-
treme. Decorum was somewhat fop
gotten, and the spectators stood up,
and many walked about the room, and
engaged in conversation. The guards
about the assassin, who still sat in his
seat before the bench, were doubled.
Chief of Detectives Cusack and two of

his men taking positions just back of
CZolgos's chair.
It was 425 when the crier rapped for
order and the jury filed into the room.
The clerk read their names, each jurcr
responded "present" as his name wA
No time was wasted. The jurors did
not sit down. AddreAing them, Jus-
tice White said:
"Gentlemen, have you agreed upon a
"We have," responded Foreman
"What is your veridct?"
"That the defendant is guilty of
murder in the first degree."
There was a moment of silence, and
then a murmur arose from the lips of
the crowd. It ended there. There was
no handclapping, no cheers. Justi-.e
White's voice could be clearly heard in
all parts of the room when he thanked
the jurors for their work and allowed
them to go until 11 o'clock to-morrow
The court was at once adjourned.
Csolgoss was immediately handcuffed
to his guards and hurried from th.
courtroom downstairs to the basement
and through the tunnel under Dela-
ware avenue to the jail.

This certificate may be used with
stock not grown in the nurseries only
by compliance with the requirements
of the American Society of Official
Horticultural Inspectors.
(Signed) H. A. GOSSARD,
Ento. Fla. Agr'l kxp Station.
If the stock should not be all healthy
for instance, if an acre of plums is in-
fected with crown gall, the remainder
of the stock being free, an exception
clause is added immediately after the
freedom and health clause, thus:
"and seemingly healthy in every re-
spect; except that one acre of plums is
not included in this certificate." The
written promise of the nurseryman
will then be taken not to use, sell or'
ship said excepted stock. The viola-
tion of such a promise will be regarded
as sufficient cause to forfeit further,
right to inspection. The presence of
any of the following pests will cause,
the insertion of the exception clause: I
San Jose scale (Aspidiotus pernicio-
sus), West Indian scale (Diaspis amy-
gdali), White fly (Aleurodes citri),
cottony cushion scale (Icerya purcha-
si), crown gall, wooly aphis, peach ro-
sette, peach yellows or any other insect
or disease likely to inflict serious in-
jury to said or other stock near which
it may be planted
An inspection certificate is not and
cannot be an absolute guarantee of
freedom from pests, but is much better
than no guarantee. No certified nurs-
ery in this State is without a fumiga-
torium, and the fumigation work of
some of our nurseries cannot be sur-
passed in the world. I always inspect
not only the nursery stock, but all ad-
jacent premises that might menace the
nursery and treatment is prescribed
according to the findings. In San Jose
scale neighborhoods, all stock suscep-
tible to the scale is thoroughly fumi-
gated before it Is permitted to leave
the nursery grounds. The keeping of
any kind of stock for more than two
years is regarded with great disfavor,
-and such stock is rigidly inspected or
ordered destroyed.
Purchasers of stock from certified
nurseries are requested to inform me
at the earliest possible moment of
stock received by them that proves to
have been diseased at the time of pur-
chase. It is only by the co-operation of
the nurseryman and the public with
the inspector that a high standard of
goods can be maintained

The following logical and timely
expressions from the Jacksonville
Times-Union and Citizen is so thor-
oughly In line with recent arguments
in these columns, that the Tallahas-
sean takes great pleasure in repro-
ducing the article in full:
."If we may judge of the spirit
abroad among the people of Florida by
the declarations of the State press,
there can be no doubt that a great and
radlical change has been wrought with-
in a year. The demand that every
possible quarter of the public money
be saved by the simple process or re-
fusing to spend has been replaced by
the business zeal which sees fan op-
portunity and grasps it, whicl would-
keep Florida communities abreast of
the times, and would provide in ad-
vance for the growth of the future. As
anl instance, we quote from te Pa-
latka Times-Herald:
We believe the chief need of the
people of Florida is good ro ds. Ir

ea that the time for argum nt nas

and action will be enforced if it does
not speedily follow. A good toad is
.a good thing, and the people )f Put-
nam will "have it as a matter f busi-
ness-money must be found nd the
Commissioners will do well heed
the gathering outburst of public opin-
ion. We believe the same may be said
of all our eastern and southerlj coun-
ties while the feeling is especially
strong in Marion and Alachuar
Here is another from the Itesburg
'Every dollar appropriated by the

hibit of the products of the cc.nty at

The money will insure a finedisplay

"We cannot make money !W hold-

bring back a dollar in return. We
have had enough penny-wise-and-

ty boards and in Tallahassee-ve want
mo spmndthriftt, but we care almost-
as little for the watch dogs of the
treasury who let great opportunities
escape while they save a postage
stamp by keeping their eyes eternally
on the ground.
"Let the press keep up the good
work until the temple of our prosper-.
ity. is worthy the foundation 0so well
laid--the people are almost convinced
and a little more effort will lift the
capstone to its place."
For an alleged brutal attack upon
the dead President of the United States
the Atlanta Journal, with consider-
.ably more enthuntasm than discretion,

demanded the expulsion of Senator
-Wellington from the Senate of the
United States, and iu fact dil accom-
plish his summary -!xpul~mon vrom one
of the most prominent clubs in Balti-
more-an organization SenatOr Well-
ington had himself been lagely in-
strumental in bringing into existence.
It now develops from a letter writ-
ten by Senator Wellington to a lady
friend of his family, residing in At-
lanta, that he did not utter the words
attributed to him. That he was ap-

preached time and again- for pn Inter-
-view, but that out of respect for the.
dead, and being unable to forgive cer-
tain acts of the President while liv.
ing,' he had refused to say anytig. '
Notwithstanding certain outragsru
wt*imenft had been attributed to Mam
and published broadcast over the
country, the Journal, desiring 'a Uttle
notoriety for itself, seized upon the
incident to make a big powwow, and
demand his expulsion from the United
States Senate. ..
If it be true that the Interview was
erroneous, as alleged by the Senator,
it will be of interest to the country to
note -whether or not the Journal will
be as ready to repair the injury it has

-doubtful if the denial at that time
would have been credited ;and he is
just as much entitled to just consider-
ation as any other man.
Two wrongs do not make a right.
Whenever any great reform is to be
instituted in ~ne government of a city
in he United States, the chief duty of
the reform party is centred in the as-
sembling of the better clai.f' voters
at the polls. It is recognized that once
the best citizens are Induced to upe
their franchise the hodlpmi element
can be outvoted. The Crstian ele-
ment, the home-loving man ti4fthe res-
idence district, can usually be cointed
upon to vote intelligently and for the
best interests of the muniplitybee.
So far no city nor State.: has been
able to force voters to the'polls. It
has remained for Belgium to practi-
cally do this and in a way that is
both efficacious and free from criti-
cism. Perhaps politics in that country
is not absolutely pure, but, according
to one writer, the standard has been
In this country the percentage of
those absenting themselves from the
polls is between 15 and 40, depending
on tne importance of the election ana
the hustling abilities of the candidates.
Previous to 1897 about 16 per cent. of
the voters of Belgium remained away
from the polls, a very small number,
considering the density of population.
In that year, a law was passed mak-
ing it compulsory upon every qualified
voter to cast his ballot at every elec-
tion. The only excuses that are ac-
cepted are sickness and absence from
the country. Last year, out of the
5,000 or more who failed to vote, about
half presented valid excuses to the
courts when brought to trial. In the
cases of first offenders, a simple warn-
ing was given. Where there had been
previous neglect, a small fine, not ex-
ceeding 25 marks, was imposed and
the privileges of the franchise taken
away for a period of ten years. In
that time, the recalcitrant is not allow-
ed to be a candidate for office, to hold
any official position nor to vote on any
proposition. He is actually barred
from enjoying a privilege that he ne-
The effect of this system has been
to reduce the percentage of those stay-
ing at home on election day to 2.7 per
cent. Instead of opposition to the law,
it is said that voters take pride in
keeping their record straight. Rich
and poor have received an impetus
for choosing officials. The man who
grumbles that politics "is so dirty" is
A Western contemporary concludes,
and we heartily agree with him, that
this is a state of affairs that should
exist in this country, where spasmodic
reforms are such a feature of life.
Within the past few years the prob-
lem -of. municipal imroyement has
been brought forward with increasing
force both through the persistent ad-
vocacy of its friends and by the in-
fluence that has been wrought through
the practical results effected in large
Yet the problem has not been solved.
From an artistic and social point of
view, the modern city is an evidence
of barbaric taste and inconvenience.
The building laws make no uniformity
in construction possible. Streets that
should be broad boulevards are hard-
ly more. than alleys. The whole

Up to this time, the discussion has
been confined to learned magazine ar-
ticles and lengthy speeches in conven-
tions. At no World's Fair has there
been a practical demonstration of
means and effects that may be secured
by an application of principles along
artistic and methodical lines.
At the recent convention of the Na-
tional League of Municipal Improve-
ment Associations a resolution was
passed favoring such a display ajt the

Louisiana Purchase Centennial Exposi-
tion. This suggestion has received gen-
eral and generous mention by the
Eastern; press. As showing the in-

When the news first reached the
American people concerning the San-
tiago naval battle the impression was
that Admiral Sampson was the real
hero of the occasion. This was due to
the act that Admiral Sampaef aSt to
the Presilent a message 14 he
said that "the fleet under my com-
mand" offered the American nation the
Santiago victory as a Fourth of July 5
present. But as soon as the newspaper
reports and the statements of gye-
witnesses came in, it developed that
Admiral Sampson, while theoret1ally
in command of the American flee ras
at leas, twelve miles trom .&n .scene
of battle, and that it was Admiral
Schley who commanded and led the
splenuid fight. Immediately sys-
tematic attack was opened upon
Schley, although the great sailor did
not indulge in boasting of any char-
acter. In reply to a question he said
"there is glory enough in this victory
for all of us." Since then the adher-
ents of Sampson and the admlnlaitt-
tion politicians have kept the news-
papers filled with things intended to
discredit Schley, but that officer has
maintained a dignified silence.
Finally, because of formal and ser-
ious attacks made upon him, Admiral
Schley has been forced, in defense of
his manhood, to demand a court of in-
quiry. His statements to the news-
papers after having demanded a court
of inquiry .are characteristic of the
man. He said "WI a very great pity
that there should be a controversy
over matters wherein everybody did his
best." How different this from the
attitude assumed by the enemies of
Admiral Schley.
It is indeed a very great pity thaL
there should be any controversy over
a matter wherein the world has given
credit where credit belongs. It is in-
deed a pity that there should be any
controversy that seeks to discredit a
brave, honorable and modest sea-fight-
er, who successfully led the American
forces in one of the greatest battles in
the history of the world. It is indeed a
very great pity that the politician and
the bureaucrats having the favor of
the administration should insist on
discrediting and abusing a man who
has served his country so faithfuny as
Winfield Scott Schley has served the
United States of America.
Admiral Sampson's admirers should
be satisfied with the fact tha. their
favorite obtained the prize money won
in a battle in which he diu not parti-
cipate, and that his face is to grace a
medal that is to commemorate a fight
in which he did not take part. It should
be sufficient for them that Admiral
Schley has never made any claim as
to his part in the great battle in San-
tiago Bay; that he has been consent
for the newspaper correspondents and
other witnesses to give the facts 0o the
American people. The difficulty.,has
been that these statements have -con-
vinced the American people .that
Schley was the real hero of the day
and entitled to all the honors at the
hands of a grateful people, even
though he is denied the emoluments
in the way of prize money and medals.

Florida's new Comptroller, non. A.
L. Croom, has dropped a bomb into
the court houses and newspaper offices
of the State, especially of the Southern
counties, that has thrown these ,centres
of activity into a state "of thunder-:
struck commotion. 1
Mr. Croom is taking advantage of
the new tax law to save the State be-
tween $30,000 and $50,000. He is abol-
*ishing the tax list as a lucrative feat-
ure of journalism. He is introducing
a startling reform. In a series of
eight circulars addressed to the as-
sessors, collectors and clerks, he puts
a construction on the new law that
wipes out the old practice of selling
and advertising the same piece of land
year after year. He has ruled that
every piece of land against which there
is an outstanding tax certifleate~held
by the State must be taken off the as-
sessment rolL As the percentage of
lands sold to the State every year is
about ninety per cent, this ruling will
cut down tax sale lists to almost
Moreover, he insists that this ruling
must be applied to the currente>ssa-
ment This will entail a-lot of extra
work on the officers. The asent-

books are far advanced at this dte.
The assessors will have to revise their
books and strike off all the tax 'cer-
tificate lands. Should they fa*t'to do-
this, the collectors will have to do
it and must return all such lands in
their report of errors and double as-
sessments. There is no escape, for the
Comptroller will refuse to pay out a
cent to any officer or newspaper upon
a single piece of land covered by a
tax -certificate.
The -Comptroller's action will entail
a heavy loss on the newspapers.that
have hitherto been lucky enough to
secure the tax list, and it will also en-
tail extra work for less pay. on' the
assessors and collectors, but tt ast
be admitted that it will save the fax-
payers a great deal of money.
It is a daring reform, and Mr.
Croom has-shown unproc4ented nerve"
in enforcing it.-Kti wime Valley

were the richest.
As to transportation, he stated that
the railroad had agreed that the fare
would be 14 cent rate on every mile
traveled round trip. That they would
furnish free transportation for all ex-
hibits sent to the fair, but exhibitors
would be required to pay ordinary
charges on return.
The committee appointed at a for-
mer meeting reported that there hav-
ing been no regular meeting of the
County Commissioners, they were un-
able to do anything, but had conferred
with members of the board, who had
promised to give it their support.
On motion, a committee of five was
appointed to wait upon the Board of
County Commitsioners at their next
regular meeting, and ask an appropri-
ation to further the interests of Leon
county at the- State Fair; and that
Iald committee recommended. a suit-
able person for commissioner to the
Boead of Count Commissioners, who
should have charge of the entire mat-
ter of Leon county's exhibits.
Agreeably to the foregoing, the ch4ir
appointedthe following as members of
that committee; W. I. Vason, W. J.
Jonnson, A. S.1 Wells, E. N. Mabry,

pounds there for us free of expense.
Send all personal and county exhibits
together, and then you can separate
them into individual exhibits after you
arrive on the grounds, if you want to
Send everything you can think of.
There will be no trouble in finding a
market there for everything that you
do not wish to take back. Even your
stock and hogs can be sol4. We have
many inquiries for these even now. _
Don't think that any of your money
will go to the State Fair. No one is
doing this to try to get rich on it.
If any county has any money left it
can go back again into the county
treasury. Florida is struggling to
show what she can do-and there is
no kid-glove get-rich-on-the-poor-
farmer business about us as yet.
A single car to return your styck
will cost about $45. A great many can
use this car. An authorized fair dray-
man will be there to haul your ex-
hibits to the fair at an agreed and
stipulated price. Each head of stock
will be furnished a stall for $2.00, and
the fair will pay for the feed of the
stock while there. A man may bring
his feed with him of he wants to, or he
can buy it himself on the grounds, as
there will be plenty of it there, and it
will be cheap, but there is no need
for this, as the stock will be fed by the
fair committee.
There will be an information bureau,
and the houses will be canvassed for
places where board and lodging can
be had while there. A great many can
go to St. Augustine to stay, as the
fare will be reduced to a very low
round trip rate, and schedule arranged
to allow parties to go over late and
return early.
After the close of Maor Healy's ad-
dress, a committee was appointed to
confer with the County Commissioners
and ask for an appropriation, and that
some one man be appointed to collect
and have charge of the exhibits of
Leon county, to go to Jacksonviwte
and take full charge of the Leon county
exhibit, while there. On motion the
chairman was made a member of the
committee. The committee is as fol-
lows: John P. Roberts, W. I. Vason,
Wm. J. Johnson, E. N. iinabry and A.
S. Wells.

ther notice.

of the secretary, Mr.W. I. Vason was
requested to act as secretary.
The chair anonunced the body ready
for business.
Capt. Rose announced that Dr. Spen-
cer, the highest authority on cane cul-
ture, would ue at the State Fair and
deliver an address on cane culture and
its manipulation.
Major Healy then addressed the
meeting, and gave a detailed and in-
structive statement of the proposed
objects of the State Fair, and what
the beneficial results would be to the
individual farmers. The fair had been
located at Jaclkonville, as that city
had appropriated $5,000, but in con-
sequence of the recent fire the man-
agement had declined to accept this
amount from that city.
He then reviewed the resources from
which ample means would be realized
to assure complete success, together
with the $2,500 appropriated by the
The Major then spoke forcibly of
the needs of the hour. He said that it
was not more farmers that Florida
needed, but better farmers. It was
advanced methods that were wanted.
A system by which we could make
five times as much as we now do. He
dwelt upon the necessary intelligence
required for successful farming. It was
as highly important to put brains as
well as brawn into this business. He
complimented the Northwest, and said
they were the brainiest and the rich-
est of all our farmers, because they
had depended mainly on their brain
work. He said the bane of the South-
ern farmers was conceit that they
knew it all. If they would go to the
fair they would return believing there
were some things they did not know.
He said that among all the counties
Leon should take the lead. That it

WVcklj Resuie of Events

Of Jerusalem on the Day

of the

Buffalo, September 17.-The most
artistic and by far the mo.-t refined
work of art in the Pan-American
grounds is the magnificent painting of
Jerusalem on the day of the Crucifix-
ion, by Plgelhelm, of Munich. Mrs.
Governor Jennings, of Florida and her
psrty were so delighted with this
spectatorium that they remained dur-
ing two'" consecutive exhibitions. The
painting shows the city of Jerusalem
at the right, the hill of Calvary sur-
mounted by the three crosses in the
centre, and on the left the hill coun-
try around Jerusalem, dotted with the
palatial home of Joseph of Arimathea,
and the villas of the Roman centur-
The electrical effects cause a black
cloud first to creep over the Holy
City. This cloud is riven by zig-zag
lightning. In the distance thunder is
heard. The cloud grows blacker until
an intense darkness covers the scene,
Out of the darkness a pure, sweet
tenor voice has been accustomed to
sing "H-osanna in the Highest." Since
the death of the President, this song
has been changed to a well-known
melody, the refrain of which is "Thy
Will Be Done." As these were the last
words of the martyred President, and
as the scene on the canvas suggests
the same sacred sentiment, the timeli-
ness and the appropriateness of the
change is apparent.
The owners of this painting paid
for it $130,000. It is the finest thing
of the kind in America. Twenty first-
class artists were engaged on the can-
vas for three years. To properly ex-
hibit it, it requires the building of
a circular amphitheatre, wnich occu-
pies more space than could be granted
by the Pan-American Exposition Com-
pany. If this magnificent feature is
secured for Charleston or for St. Louis,
it is to be hoped that it will be sit-
uated in a quiet and beautiful part ot
the grounds, and where the solemn
suggestions it inspires wil not be dis-
pelled by its surroundings as soon as
one leaves the oriental columns which
support the amphitheatre in which it
is now contained. Dr. Talmage says:
"It is worth a thousand sermons."
The electrical effects add much to
the entertainment While the dark
cloud hangs over Jerusalem there is
a halo of color around the central fig-
ure on the cross which glows through-
out the whole scene until the speaker,
who is a fine elocutionist, concludes
the story of Gethsemane and Calvary.
At that moment the electrical effects
vanish, the music ceases and the clear
sunlight of an eastern afternoon falls
on the splendid painting. A field of
golden sunshine flecks the mountain
bordered pathway leading towards
Bethany. The cloud over Calvary has
a golden lining and the Temples of
David and of Mariamne, the pillared
palaces of Herod, stand out on the
canvas as real as if one stood on a hill
overlooking Jerusalem itself.

"I suffered for thirty years with di-
arrhoea and thought I was past be-
ing cured," says John S. Halloway, of
French Camp, Miss. "I had spent so
much time and money and suffered
so much that I had given up all hope
of recovery. I was so feeble from ame
effects of the diarrhoea that I could
do no kind of labor, could not even
travel, but by accident I was permit-
ted to find a bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy,
and after taking several bottles I am
entirely cured of that trouble. I am
so pleased with the result that I am
anxious that it be in reach of all who
suffer as I have." For sale by Wight

Mr. Editor-A large audience of the
best colored people of Tallahassee as-
sembled-at St James' C. M. E. Church
Monday evening, September 23, and
rendered a unique program in respect
to the nation's fallen chieftain. The
services were attended with that re-
quiem and solemnity due to the death
of one who was nationally lovedand
universally respected.
The life and worth of Mr. McKinley
were eulogized as citizen, soldier,
statesman, executive and husband. The
beautiful variableness in the life of
this great man as exhibited by the
speakers was enchantng and pano-
The speakers of the occasion were:
Mr. J. W. Jones, Dr. A. S. Jerry Prof.
J. G. hiley and Miss I. C. Baker. The
choir for this special occasion sang
some choice selections in a most pa-
thetc and touching manner, which ap-
pealed impressively to the heart of the
audience as the dead President's fa-
vorite hymns.
Mrs. F. G. Johnson brought the
sweetest and softest tones trom ithe

* The exercises.mean that a large per-
cent of the colored people are keeping
abreast with the thought and activity
of the best white citizens of this coun-
ty, and are ready to join them in main-
taining the supremacy of law and les-
sening of crime and criminals whose
horrifying deeds have brought na-
tional woe upon us.
Rev. W. J. Turner presided ably as
master of ceremonies.
At a conference of the members of
the Baptist Church, Saturday, the fol-
lowing resolutions were adopted:
Our pastor and brother, S. M. Pro-
vence, having notified the church that
he will not-again make application-to
the State Board of Missions as their
missionary to this field,* we, the mem-
bers of the First Baptist Church of
Tallahassee, take this means of ex-
pressing our appreciation of, the work
here accomplished through Bro. Pro-
vence; the general uplift which he has
given us by his gospel and scholarly
preaching; of our unstinted confidence
in his moral and religious character,
and of his refined, cultured and high-
toned gentlemanly bearing.
During his term as pastor, the
church has grown from a membership
of four to the present enrollment of 50
members. Counting those that have
moved away, 81 individuals have been
received by baptism and by letter into
the church.
Notwithstanding the besetments an,
discouragements of the field-which
have been such as would have bewil-
dered the man of little faith-the doors
of the church have been opened twice
each Sunday for preaching, a Sunday
school has been maintained, and the
week-day prayer meeting kept up al-
most the whole of the time- of our
brother's labors with us.
With serious doubts and misgivings
upon the part of the membership, yet
small in numbers and unable to con-
tribute much toward the enterprise,
Bro. Provence undertook the work of
raising money to repair the church
building, which, up to last year, was
hardly respectable as a house of the
Lord, saying nothing of its uninviting
general appearance with its uncom-
fortable interior. By the indomitable
energy of our pastor, the aid of the
State Board of Missions was secured,
and the church together with her
friends having more than duplicated
all that the State Board appropriated
from all sources, the Herculean task of
putting the little church in order was
begun. Bro. Provence accounting for
every dime that came into his hands,
and for every cent that passed out,
gave his time and personal attention to
the repairing of the building. The re-
sults we all see and recognize. The
church property with modern conven-
iences, auditorium, Sunday school
room, patent seats, carpet and pulpit,
is the pride of every member and
stands as a gracious monument to the
indomitable courage, faith and suc-
cessful labors of our pastor, who to-
day gives us notice that his personal
work with and for us will soon be
at an end.
It is therefore Resolved by all the
members of the First Baptist Church,
in conference assembled:
First,That we appreciate and grate-
fully acknowledge toe important work
which has been accomplished through
the efforts of Bro. S. M. Provence, who
has served us as pastor for so many
Second, That we renew our thanks
to the State Board of Missions for their
continued assistance in supporting this,
their worthy appointment as mission-
ary to this church;
Third, That these resolutions be
spread upon the minute book of the
church and a copy properly signed hy
the clerk be sent to Bro. Provence,
and that a copy be sent to the secre-
tary of the State Board of Missions.
Done by order of the church in con-
ference, September 21st, 1901, First
Baptist Church, Tallahassee, Fla.

Washington, Sept 21.-Much hbs

to be followed by the new Presid4nt---
much that does not altogether agree'

unless in some way they had offended
Crowninshield, in which case they
were punished by being sent to duty
with the machinery. The result has
been that warrant machinists have
managed the costly engines of our
ships; in many cases with the result of
practically ruining them. Last year
bills for repairs were unprecedent-
edly large,; the usual appropriation
therefore being exhausted long before
the close of the fiscal year. Recently,
in response to the protests of Admiral
Melville, Chief of Engineers, Admiral
Crowninshield promised to detail two
engineer officers, who should alternate
with each other below deck to each
warship. This ridiculously inadequate
concession is all that he will make.
Now the question is, What will Roose-
velt do? He drew the law, under-
standing it to mean something far dif-
ferent from what it has worked out
to establish. Will he compel Admiral
Crowninshield to obey its spirit, or
will he advocate its repeal, or what?
Naval officers are waiting anxiously
to ascertain, and those who pay for
our warships should be waiting even
more anxiously to learn whether their
property is to go. on being ruined by
.Ae deliberate refusal of Admiral
Crowninshield to obey the law.
The accession of President Roose-
velt means the decline of tieneral Cor-
bin, if reports be true. Corbin, it is-
known, expected to command the army
when General Miles retired, two years
hence, thus realizing his ambition for
the stars of a Lieutenant-General. He,
however, despises the American vol-
unteer. It was through his influence
that Mr. Roosevelt was refused an
ardently desired medal of honor for
his services in toe Santiago campaign.
It was also he, by the way, who ob-
jected so strongly to Funston's pro-
motion, claiming that the latter was
merely a good sort of a scout Now his
reward is at hand. President Roose-
velt cannot well "get even" with him
by displacing him from his post in
charge of the Adjutant-General's office
(nor would he desire to do this), but
he will certainly promote some one
else to General Miles' place when the
vacancy occurs, tne more so as Gen-
eral Corbin won his present place by
political favoritism.

you for the good you have done teeth-

health of these organs. The best and

One day a committee went down to
The Tribune to complain. Mr. Greeley,
having listened in silence to what these
gentlemen had to say. looked up from
his desk. a twinkle in his eye, and

author, John Coulter, is a famous
historian, biographer and journalist.
The introduction is by the Hon Shelby
M. Cullom, United States Senator
from Illinois, the life-long, intimate
and honored friend of Lincoln, Gar-
field and McKinley. His introduction
is a sufficient recommendation to
every American citizen for the au-

Mr. J. L. Hall, one of the leading
stock raisers of Wakulla county, was
in the city last Monday, and in con-
versation with the Tallahasseean said
that perhaps the largest beef cattle
drive ever made from that section left
a few days ago for Tampa. They were
purchased by Chas. C. Pratt from
Walker & Brown, J. L. Hall and J. L.
Thomas. That is, most of them were.
In the drive there were something
over 500 head, all beef steers. They
were driven across Natural Bridge, on
the Wakulla river, where the number
was augmented by one or two hun-
dred from Hancocks pasture in this
county, and the drive then proceeded
through the country to Gainesville.
From the latter place, it is stated,
they will be shipped by rail to Tampa.
Good prices were paid for all these
cattle. One man, Mr. Hall said, was
reported to have received $4,525.00,
and the others received right snug lit-
tle sums.

Yom Kippur, or the Jewish Day of
Atonement, was observed in this city
on Monday, the 23d. The Rosh Hash-
onah, or Jewish New Year, began on
Saturday, the 14th. This was the be-
ginning of the ten days of observance
ending Monday, the 23d, with Yom
Kippur. It is called the day of atone-
ment or fast day, during which time
from 6 o'clock p. m. of the previous
day until 6 'clock p. m. of this day a
complete fast is kept and all business
absained from and stores closed.
This day was observed as usual by
all Jews in the city, and the usual ser-
vices were held in the Masonic Tem-
ple, under the direction of acting Rabbi
Julius Diamond. There were a number
of visitors from out of town present.
There are a large number of Jews
doing business in Tallahassee, and the
streets looked rather deserted with so
many prominent houses of business
and the saloons of the city closed.
Mr. Harry Wilson, foreman of the
carpenter shop at the depot of the S.
A. L. Railroad, received a bad injury
last Wednesday, the 18th, by the fly-
ing off of a piece of steel into his eye.
The wound was so painful and of such
a dangerous nature that he was
obliged to go to Jacksonville to have
it extracted. In doing this the whole
eye was wholly removed from the
socket, when the steel was located and
removed, and the eye replaced with-
out accident.
It was altogether a delicate opera-
tion, and in the hands of an inexperi-
enced person he would no doubt have
lost the sight of his eye.
He returned to the city on Friday
afternoon. At last accounts the in-
ury was rapidly improving, and Mr.
Wilson will return to his work again

chapel this year.
But this is not all. The authorities
have completed arrangements and
signed specifications for a steam-heat-
ing plan. for all three of the main
buildings. Boilers will be put into
the centre of each of them. They will
be heated by radiation; by pipes and
double rowed radiators in all the prin-
cipal rooms and halls in each of them,
the piping to be of first-class mater-
ial. There will be 44 radiators for the
girls' building; 38 for the boys'
building, and 30 for the college hall.
In each story radiators will, so far
as possible, economize pipng by be-
ing placed over each other, tie pipes
in the first story lea4,ng straight up
to the radiators and pipes in the sec-
ond story; this "will save a great

not lavishly expend money, but have
studied economy in every way pos-
sible while yet trying to get the best
material-realizing that their build-
ings of both minds and houses are
for time-a good long time all hope.
The Florida State College was never
in a better condition for work than
at present. On June 14, 1858, females
were admitted to the institution. On
June 5, 1901, the name under which
the college was then and previously!
known was changed from that of tne
"West Florida Seminary" to that of
the "Florida State College."
At length, after many years of
waiting, Florida's State College
stands before the people.
The house of Mrs. S. M. McGriff
caught fire last Wednesday, the 16th
inst., and would have been seriously
damaged but for the timely assistance
of neighbors. The fire started from a
sooty chimney, anq was soon blazing
away furiously.
The roof caught fire from the defect-
ive flue and was soon also in a blaze.
Mr. Carter, the next door neighbor,
seeing the fire, came to the rescue, and
soon had the flames subdued.
Mr. Carter is a railroad employee, and
had he not been about a serious fire
would have resulted.
The many friends and relatives of
Silas A!len will be pleased to hear
that he is to leave the Philippine Is-
lands for home in October. A letter
from h'm dated August 23, and ust
received by a member of the alla-
hasseean force, gives the information.
His regiment will return to the
States at that time anu he expects to
be mustered out in time to take
Christmas dinner iat home.

The coirect date for the oi ening of
Leon Academy is Monday, September
30th. By that tinge our Superintend-
ent expects to be n readiness for the
work. The house, is, being scrubbed
up and put in order generally inside,
while the walks and grounds about
the building are itn process of repair.
A successful year, is hoped and pre
dicted for the academy.

The City Restaurant has been re-
purchased by Mr. H. L. Gregory,
Mr. Moody having decided to move
back on his farm. Mr. Gregory has al-
ready taken charge, and is pushing
things in that line more than ever.
His first sfflpment of Shell Point oys-
ters will reach him to-morrow, and
he is making a special drive for the
oyster trade.
