The Turpentine Men Organ-

ized in this City


Future of Naval stores Indnstry De-
pends on Forest Protection.

The turpentine men of Middle Flor-
ida met in the Opera House last Fri-
day for the purpose or organizing the
Tallahassee sub-association of Naval
Stor s Manufacturers.
There was a large attendance of tur-
pentine operators present, end all ex-
pressed satisfaction over the outlook
of this important industry.
The object of the association is for
the improvement of the naval stores
business throughout this section. It
was decided to cut down the production
of spirits by doing away with 50 per
cent of the boxes worked last year.
The meeting endorsed the action of
the State association, which met in
Jac.sonville September 10 and 11, and
adopted the by-laws and constitution
of .-at association.
J. D. Cay, of this city, was elected
president; E. L. Hutchinson, of Ash-
more, secretary, and E. F. Johnson,
treasurer. After a few short informal
talks about the naval stores business,
the meeting adjourned, subject to the
call of the President.
Mr. J. B. Mills, a successful turpen-
tine man, in discussing the future of
this industry, saL, to the Tallahassee-
an: "I think the outlook is exceedingly
bright. The curtailment of the produc-
tion of spirits will naturally enhance
its value, and fity cent turpentine is

only be a few years until another

Attorney-General Lamar Leaves for
Washington on Monday.
On October 28 a case of great import-
ance to the State of Florida will be
called up in the United States Supreme
Court, at Washlngton This is the suit
of the State of Florida against the F.
C. & P. Railroad Company for $96,-
181.69 taxes.
This suit has been in litigation for
several years, and is the most import-
ant the State was ever interested in. On
three separate appeals from the Circuit
Court to the Supreme Court of Florida
it has been decided in favor of the
plainutf, the last decision having been
rendered on June 26, 1900.
The railroad company appealed' from
this decision and carried the case to
the Supreme Court of the United
States, where it.Is now pending.
Attorney-General Lamar, who is rep-
resenting Florida, went to Washingwn
in February of this year, and succeeded
in having the case set for heau;ing on
October 28. '1 he Attorney-General will
leave for Washington next Monday, to
be on the ground a few days before the
suit is called. He will argue the ease
for the State of Florida, and is confi-
dent that the decisions of the lower
courts will be affirmed. It is t ought
that a verdict will be rendered within
sixty days after the argument is neard.
The railroad company will be rep-
resented before the Supreme Court by
Hon. Wayne McVeigh, ex-Attorney-
General of he United States, and Mr.
Frederick D. McKenney. Its represent-
atives in the btate of Florida are Hon.
John A. Henderson, of Tallahassee,
and Hon. T. L. Clarke, of Monticello,
one or both of whom will assist the
Washington attorneys.

An interesting publication of the
United States Geological Survey is Fo-
lio 70 of the Library Edition of the
Geological Atlas, which has just been
issued. The folio is entitled "The
.Vashington Quadrangle," and em-
braces tne territory covered by the
District of Columbia and the adjacent
portions of Maryland and Virginia.This
is an interesting region geologically as
in it occurs the juncture of the old ar-
chean, crystalline formations and the
sedimentary rocs of the latest hori-
As has been usual in previous folios
of this edition, the introductory por-
tion is occupied by the physical and
geologic features to be found in the
section. In this case the descriptive
introduction is particularly exhaust-
ive and complete. It contains an in-
teresting summary of the character-
istics oi the two great physiographic
features represented-the Piedmont
plateau and the. Coastal Plain, with
their relations to other parts of the
same continental developments; it
touches upon the geological history
which produce these features; and it
discusses in great detail the various
local outcroppings and the numerous
varieties of rock and clay formations
found upon them. In addition to these
the mineral resources and their eco-
nomic availability are carefully noted
as are also the underground waters
which are suitable for well supply.
Accompanying the text are five fine
maps, covering the same territory, but
illustraLng different aspects of it; a
topographic map with contours,
streams, towns and other surface cul-
ture, an historical geological sheet, an
economic sheet, a structural section
sheet and a physiographic geology
One of the new and interesting feat-
urem of this folio is the introduction of
eontour lines upon the sheet of eco-.
nomic geology, to illustrate the posi-
tion of the district's artesian waters.
In the vicinity of Washington the chief
underground water supply is obtained
from the Potomac formation, which
lies above the hard crystals of the old-
er crystallines. It is the location of
this formation that the contour lines
are intended to show. One set of lines
shows the position of its top and
others define its -base on the bed rock.
They are referred to tide level, but
as they are drawn on a topographic
map, it is easy to find the depth to be

And Illinois, too? President Roose-
velt, not content, with sending cold
chills up and down the spinal columns
of Southern Republicans, proposes to
see that honest and efficient men are
placed in office in the North. What a
shaking up there will be.
Senator Mason, of Illinios, is the lat-
est Republican dispenser of patronage
to see a new light. The following dis-
patch to a Repudiican organ gives the
sickening details:
Senator William -.. Mason had a
talk with the President this morning
on the subject of lilinios Federal ap-
pointments. He urged the claim of a
"This man, Mr. President, is backed.
by the organization," the Senator de-
clared, whereupon he was interrupted.
The President arose. His voice alsj
rose, and was audible in adjacent
"That is all very well, Senator," he
cried, "I wish to stand well with thc
Illinois organization, and all that. 1
would like to please the organization,
but you must understand that I will
appoint no man unless he is eminently
qualified for the position which he
seeks, and is a man of integrity. I
have said this to Senators, and I pro-
pose to stand oy it."
What could the poor Senator do?
He had no applicant with-the proper
qualifications. There is consternation
all down the line. What is to become
o the machine? How are political debts
to be paid? Does the President intend
to turn out the whole caboodle?
This incident furnishes a great deal
of fun for the Republic, tne leading
Democratic paper of Missouri, where
more ring politics exist than any other
State, perhaps. Referring to it the
Republic concludes:
"The Mississippi river separates Il-
linois from Missouri. Looking over the
stream kissouri Republicans will see
trouble heading westward. It will soon
be up to the "outfit" in this State to
find men for Federal offices "eminently
qualified and of integrity." There
evidently will be something doing, and
of a nature to satisfy the most ennuied
seeker after political amusement."

The following appointments have
been made during the past week by

Leon will have no Exhibit at

the State Fair


Work will Probably be Begun in a
Short Time.

The County Commissioners a' ,, ::-
last meeting failed to appoint ac :r -
ville, or to make any arrangements fuo-
vile, or o make any arrangements for
Leon county to have an exhibit there.
This is to be deplored, but the fail-
ure was not because the Commission-
ers did not recognize the importance
of this county having a worthy ex-
hibit. On the contrary, they realized
the fact that the State Fair would fur-
nish a splendid opportunity to adver-
tise the wonderful agricultural ad-
vantages and resources of this county,
but were deterred from doing so
through a lack of funds.
Another thing that stands in the way
is the fact that the Commission-rs
conemplate ditching the ponds and low
lands adjacent to the city. 'The es-
timated cost of this is about $750, but
it may possibly be double that amount.
A ditch from a mile to a mile and ;t
half in length will be necessary to
carry off the water in the two ponds.
The commissioners will open up coum-
munication with the officials of th<:
Seaboard Air Line Railroad Company.
and it they can be induced to lower
their culvert the work will be begin
in a short time.

An Associated eress dispatch of hil-
14th .inst credits President Roosevdlt
with making the following statement
in relation to his probable candidacy
for the Presidency in 1904:
"President Roosevelt, in talking to-
day with a delegation o0 k federal office-
holders from South Carolina, said: 'I
am going to select the very best men
for public places. If the American peo-
ple choose to show their approval of
my course as President by placing me
at the head of the ticket in 1904 t
shall be deeply grateful, but if I have
to pander to cliques or combinations
for this approval, I would not give the
snap of my finger for it. iy endorse-
ment must come from the people of
the conti,' -'

to that ex-
e l late la-
mented Pretidet I may prove
a blessing in disguise, for it is a Uer-
tainty that no man's personality as a
citizen candidate could have done It.
President Roosevelt and his friends
seem to regard this as the strongest
fighting ground in the next campaign.
and they are receiving a whole lot of
endorsement throughout the country
from a Democratic source-much of it
perhaps unwittingly given. Tnar. is
the ground occupied too long by the
party too long for the Republican Pres-
ident to take the wind out of our sails
at this late day-though we think it
indicates a healthy statl < if affairs in

A Prominent Young Lady of Macon,

Georgia. -
Accompanying a splendid picture ot
both the young people, tne Atlanta
Journal-of the 12th inst., contained the
following notice of the approaching
nuptials of Mr. V. F. Balkcom, of this
city, to Miss Thomas, a prominent
young lady of Macon, Ga:
Mr. and Mrs. Thaddeus Murphy, f)
Macon, announce the engagement o0
their cousin, Miss Elizabeth Thonias,
and Mr. Frank Balkcom, the wddiicng

vember 14th, at he residence of \Ir. -nd
Mrs. Murphy.
Miss Lois Cabaniss, of Forsyth, will
-'be the maid of honor.
The bride will be married in a hand-
some -traveling gown, and after the
ceremony the two will leave for a %ed-
ding journey to Palm Beach.
The announcement of this engage-
ment is of great interest to the many
friends of the two young people.
Miss Thomas is a -charming girl,
bright and pretty, with manners which
win friends at once and a nature that
holds fast such friendship. She is a
daughter of the late Mrs. Dorothy
Thomas, of Forsyth, and only recently
moved to Macon, where she has made
her home with her cousins, Mr. and
Mrs. Murphy.
In Atlanta, Miss Thomas has fre-
quently been an admired visitor, and
has just returned home from a visit
here with Mrs. A. E. Turner, on Court-
land street.
Mr. Balkcom is a leading young
druggist of Tallahassee, and is a young
man of fine qualities and deserve pop-
ularity. He will introduce his bride to
a warm circle of' frienus in Tallabas-
-ie marriage will be the consumma-
tion of a romantic love-affair. The ac-
quaintance began through a mutual
friend, a correspondence..eveloping be-
fore the two had -ever seen each other.
When they finally met. CupAd formed
one of the party, and the wedding No-
vember 14th is the natural conclusion
of the matter.
Heart congratulations attend the
young couple.

"I would cough nearly all night
long," writes Mrs. Chas. Applegate, of
Alexandria, Ind., "and could hardly
get any sleep. I had consumption so
bad that if I walked a block I would
cough frightfully and spit blood, but,
when all other medicines failed, three
$I.00 bottles of Dr. King's New Dis-
covery wholly cured me and I gaiped

One of the departments of the work
of the united States Geological Sur-
vey which has a particularly practical
bearing on manufacturing and other
business interests is the accurate
measurement of flow of the country's
streams. Its utility lies in the fact
that it reduces to a matter of actual
knowledge the amount of water pass-
ing through them at all seasons of the
year, which important factor has prob-
ably been the subject of more guess-
work than any other one thing in this
branch of engineering. More especially
is this true of the low water stages
on which really depend the effective
worth of the streams, so that many
mills and factories which have been
built in expectation of being operated
entirely by water power, have had to
be furnished with auxiliary steam
power to help out in times of a defi-
cient and unexpectedly low water sup-
ply. Perhaps this is the chief reason,
this general distrust of the reliability
of the estimltes of flow, that the really
magnificent power possibilities of
many streams, both in the eastern anat
western mountain sections of the coun-
try, have not been more fully develop-
ed. The trouble has not been that the
streams cannot be relied upon to fur-
nish power, but that the power which.
can reasonably be expected of them
has been over estimated The accurate

gaging of streams requires much time
and accurate knowledge: It involves
daily observation of their rise and fall,
extending over a number of years, fre
quent measurements of their flow by
delicate Ins ldents, and careful ob-
servations of diversions by dams or
power plants already in operation.
When applied to the
this work becomes of such wide scope
as to be beyond the efforts of any but
the -general. government, and, as a
matter of fact, few of the State, to say
nothing of Individuals, have made any
sytematic effort to undertake' it The

Those who were members of t__ last
legislature, as well as the lobby and
citizens ol Tellalha.sece, will remember
Miss Elam as a very bright and at-
tractive woman, and Hon C. Fabian
Law is well and favorably known
throughout this State and Georgia.
Miss Elam came here just before the
convening of the Legislature of this
year. She had letters of introduction
and recommendation from Governor
Candler, of Georgia; Secretary of
State Cook and other prominent offi-
cials of that State. She is an expert
stenographer, an exceptionally well in-
formed woman and besi-es having
more work than she could do, she had
hosts of admirers among the law-
The Atlanta Journal of a recent date
tells final outcome as follows:
"The engagement is announced of
Miss Ada Elam, of Atlanta, and Hon.
C. Fabian Law, the marriage to take
place November 7th, at St. Luke's
"Mr. Law and his bride will leave
immediately afer the ceremony on a
bridal trip north, and on their return
will be at home, near Daytona, Fla.
"The engagement is a matter of in-
terest throughout Georgia and Florida,
as both parties are prominently known
in social and political circles.
"Miss Elam is formerly of Rome,
uut has made her home in Atlantaifor
the past ten years. She was the first
woman in Georgia to receive the posi-
tion of postmaster of the Legislature,
and for several years she has been a
stenographer of the House of Repre-
sentatives. She is prominent in po-
litical circles throughout the .State,
and i-.presents a well-known family.
She is a cousin of Mr. George Sciple,
of this city.
Mr. Law is Senator from the
Twenty-ninth Senatorial district of
Florida. He is one of the most prom-
inent and popular public men in the
State. Though'now closely associated
with the affairs of Florida, Mr. L:aw is
a native Georgian, having beP. b!,rna
in Liberty county. He has sp *-.t his
boyhood d&yf in Sav.i father was a successful lawyer. He is
j man of culture and refinement and
has hosts of friends who are congratu-
lating him on his good fortune.
1Miss Flam was sent by Governor
Chandler to attend the Florida legisla-
ture last April in order to do some
stenographic work there, and it was
then that she met Mr. Law, a promi-
nent figure in that body. The meet-
ing terminated thus happily in thi.i

produce sixty to eighty bushels of corn

No Noxious Doses. No Weakening of
the Nerves. A Pleasant and Posi-
tive Cure for the Liquor Habit.

It is now generally known and

most obstinate case, no matter how
hard a drinker. Our records show the
marvelous transformation of thou-
sands of drunkards into sober, in-
dustrious aid upright men.
This remedy is In no sense a nostrum,
but is a specific for this disease only,
and is so skillfully devised and pre-
pared that it is thoroughly soluble and
pleasant to the taste, so that it can be
given in a cup of tea or coffee with-
out the knowledge of the person tak-
ing it Thousands of drunkards have
cured themselves with this priceless
remedy, and as many more have been
cured and made temperate men by
having the "CURE" administered by
loving friends and relatives without
their knowledge in tea or coffee, and
believe to-day that they discontinued
drinking of their own free will. DO

which it produced itself and which
were pastured by the cattle a few
months each year. Yet that field has
produced a fair crop of corn every
year-fair for piney woods soil-say,

If the flatwoods soil, wita the half
of 1 per cent of plant food, produces
fifteen bushels, the rich, black calcar-
eous prairie, with 9 per cent., ought
to produce eighteen times as much, or
270 bushels of corn to the acre.
For corn-growing purposes this flat-

easily worth three times as much, be-

ling of the Okefinokee Swamp Had a
Thrilling Experience.

Toe great- Okefinokee Swamp is a
vast expanse of wood and water, mrsh
and lagoons, covering a large part of
Ware, Clinch and Charlton counties,
in Georgia, and extending down into
y'iorida. It was the last retreat or the
Seminole Indians in Georgia. From its
attness they would sally out on their
excursions for plunder, and their pur-
suers found it impossible to follow
when the Red Men retired to their
Obediah Barber, one of South Geor-
gia's most picturesque characters, is
probably the only white nia ii ing;
who has explored the swamp from
centre to circumference, and he has


only about 130 miles, with a dense and:
almost trackless forest between t em.
But what is a little thing like that
when one's heart is thrilled with love?
There were no railroads nm those days,
the modes of travel being by wagon.
horseback or on foot. But if locks and
bars are no barriers against love, dis-
tance is equally ineffective, and had,
no terrors for Barber. The little god
Cupid had fired his golden arrows of
love and pierced the heart of the
youthful swain.
His fair Dulcinea was sufficient at-
traction to induce Barber to brave the
dangers of frequent journeys to court
her. Many times he was forced to
ford swollen streams and camp out at
night, with panthers, bears and wolves
to enliven the monotony. Neither
heat nor cold, rain nor snow, could de-
ter him from making the trips. The
two were finally married, and about
the year 1846 went down to the Okefin-
okee swamp to make their home and
carve out their fortunes.
"It was a splendid stock country at
that time," saiu Mr. Barber. "There
were only about 250 voters :un ie
whole of Ware county, and our neigh-'
bors were far apart All kinds f
game was. abundant, however, ani ihis
promised plenty of sport. I renrvmuer
very distinctly the first night we vr-
rived at out new home.
"Mr. Crews, from whom I bought
the place, had not yet moved. We had
hardly driven up when we heard a hog
squealing and making a tremendous
racket. Crews, in a very indifferent
tone, said "a bear's got 'im."
"I was young and enthusiastic then,
and exclaimed excitedly "let's kill
'im!" But Crews was a man of ex-
perience, and did not want to tackle
the job. Besides he had no bear dogs."
The outcome, however, was that Bar-
ber prevailed on Crews to go to a man
named Albritt6n, who had a couple of
bear dogs. The distance was ten miles,
but the two saddled their horses at
once and started. Albritton was anx-
ious to try his dogs, and in a few min-
utes the trio set out on the return.
They were joined by two or three
neighbors, and before daylight reached
the place where the hog nad squealed
so vociferously.
The grass and underbrush were beat-
en down and covered with blood,
while a broad trail lea out through the
swamp, showing where the brute had
dragged his porker. The dogs imme-
diately took the track, barking and
yelping eagerly. Barber, being inex-
perienced,struck out at full speed after
the animals. The others attempted to
call him back. but he was after bear
and paid no attention. The trail led
through underbrush and over fallen
logs. But the young hunter in his
eagerness paid no attention as he
stumbled over numerous alligators and
disturbed all kinds of water fowl. The
swamp was wet and boggy, and at
times he was compelled to wade waist
deep in mud and water.
After a couple of hours the dogs treed
their quarry. Barber saw a small cub
sitting in the top of a water oak, -just

Taking deliberate aim the hunter
fired, and the bear came tumbling to

tention to the cub but after a short
enase the young one escaped. Barber
soon returned to the place where he
-ad bagged his hrst bear, and proudly
surveyed the shaggy carcass. The an-
imal weighed aaout 300 pounds.
Like Hercules of old who slew .-e
fierce Namaean lion in his den be-
tween Argos and Corinth, and plac-
ing the carcass on his shoulders,
resume his journey, the young hunter
shouldered bruin and retraced his
steps to where .e left his compan-
On another occasion, while out hunt-
ing nogs, young Barber met with one
of the most adventures of his
life. He was proceeding leisurely
along, when he saw a razor-back
swamp angel running as if the old boy
was after him. And sure enough, he
was, for a few yards behind. a monster
bsacK hear came tearing along.
"R.ght here.' said Mr. Barber, in re-
counting the incident, "I want to cor-
rect an impression that seems to have
prevailed for years. You frequently
read or tne bear's deadly hug. But my
experience is that he don't hug. When
he gets into close quarters he rears on
his hind feet and makes a grab for his
victim, which he gnaws to death."
%. hen Barber first saw the race he
stopped still in tracks. He was in
a predicament which caused cold shiv-
ers to chase each other up and uown
his spinal column. The frightened
porker was making a bee-line in his
erectionn. The hog passed like a
whirlwind, the bear lumbering on be-
hina, but gaining rapidly. The ,race
would have been a pretty one, but for
the danger that soon menaced him.
When bruin went by -:e spied Barber
and stopped.
"By gosh, I knoweu that meant fight,
and you bet I wasn't anxious for it. I
always hau a delicacy about having a
personal encounter with a bear, and.
didn't think it woulu be treating the
critter right to get into close quarters.
Besides. 1 hadn', lost any bears. It
was -iogs I was after. If you or anyone
else should suodenmy come face to face
with a full grown bear that means
fight, it won't take you long to be
convinced that it is not healthy to get
in caressing distance, or tamper with
tie critter. Not having a shooting-
iron. I nad no desire to have a hand to
iuali scrimmage."
Barber began backing odi, the bear
following. Watching his chance, the
hunter whirled and darted through the
woods, determined to give the savage
brute a good race. He could hear the
bear growling a few feet in his rear as
ne tore through the underbrush. Pres-
ently the pursued felt the hoL breath
of his pursuer, and expected every mo-
ment to feel his claws. He kept a sharp
lookout for some Kind of weapon, ana
just as ruin reared to gra, iim, saw
a club a little to one siue, which he
instanrty .arted for.
The bear, of course, passed him, but
stopped almost instantly. He whirled
around to make a charge. Again he
rearea, his eyes glaring ferociously.
Barber knew it was to be a life and
ueath struggle. It is needless to say
that as hair stood on end, and that he
felt the gravity of the situation.

How About

Your Heart
Feel your pulse a few minutes.
Is it regular? Are you short of
breath, after slight exertion
as going up stairs, sweeping,
walking, etc? Do you have
pain in left breast, side or
between shoulder blades, chok-
ing sensations, fainting or
smothering spells, inability to
lie on left side? If you have
any of these symptoms you
certainly have a weak heart,
and should immediately take

Miles Heart Cure
Mr. F. II. Oaks of Jamestown, N. Y,
whose genial face appears above, says:
Excessive use of tobacco seriously

What to Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfills every
wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the
back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part
of the urinary passage. It corrects inability
to hold water and scalding pain in passing
it, or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that unpleasant
necessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many times
during the night. The4mild and the extra-

realized. It stands the highest for its won-

He is Coming Home for a



The Navy Clique Will

be Disap-

pointed--Washington Oos'ip.

Washington, Oct. 12.-There is little
doubt that the published abstract of
the new Hay-Pauncefote treaty, as al-
lowed to leak out in this city, will be
generally satisfactory to the country,
though most Democrats think it would
be better simply to abrogate the Clay-
ton-"ulwer treaty by act of Congress
and go ahead independently without
any reference at all to British wishes.
But it is by no means certain that this
abstract fairly represents the. treaty.
On the contrary, there is the best rea-
son to believe that the latter has not
yet been reduced to writing and will
not be until Lord Pauncefote reaches
this city, which he will do early in No-
vember. All that has been done so far
is, it seems, to block out the chief
heads of agreement. Further, it is re-
asonably certain that the two able cor-
respondents who got the "scoop" on
the treaty did not see even these heads
in writing, but merely got their news
from some one who had seen it, or had
been told by someone else who had
geen it. Therefore, with all the good
intentions in the world, it is extreme-
ly doubtful that they have been able
to give an absolutely accurate fore-
cast. Ev-w1ione remembers the some-
what similar situation that obtained
shortly li'cre the former Hay-Paunce-
tote convention was made public. Some
one pretty close to Secretary Hay gave
out a highly optimistic account of that
document. Never, it was asserted since
the morning stars sung together, had
there been such a triumph for Ameri-
can diplomacy; the name of Hay would
go down to future ages embalmed with
.. The great canal work. Everybody re-
members the result when the treaty
was finally published; how it turned
out to be such an utter surrender to
Britain that even Secretary Hay's own
party had to repudiate it. The new
treaty may be the same.
Ambassador coming home,
ostensibly on vacation, really, it is ru-
mored to surrender his post, which will
be filled by the appointment of either
ex-Senator Lodge or ex-Senator Wol-
cott Mr. Choate. it is said, is not vig-
orous enough for President Roosevelt.
Immediately after the deaLa of Presi-
dent A!vKinly, Mr. Lodge hurried to
London and had long conferences with
Lord Lansdowne, of the Foreign Af-
fairs office, in which he informed the
$100 REWARD $100.
The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con-
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting di-
rectly upon the blood and mucous sur-
faces of the system, thereby destroy-
ing the foundation of the disease, and
giving the patient strength by build-
ing up the constitution and assisting
nature doing its work. The proprie-
tors have so much faith in .6s curative
powers, that they offer One Hundred
Dollars for any case that it fails to
cure. Send for list of testimonials.

Hall's Family Pills are the best.

British Government fully of Mr. Roose-
velt s wishes in regard .o the canal,
clearing the subject from the distortion
inevitably put upon it by the Anglo-
mania of both Secretary Lay and Am-
bassador Choate: the result appears
in the treaty so promptly agreed to
when Britain found we were in earnest.
Mr. Choate, it is said, is angry at hav-
ing been ignored and purposes to leave
office. Senator Lodge would certainly
prefer to remain in the Senate if he
could become chairman of the Foreign
Relations committee, but this post, it
is now definitely decided, will go to
Senator Cullom. Possibly, therefore,
Mr. Lodge may like to go to England.
If not, Mr. Wolcott, to whom the Re-
publicans owe such obligations, will
probably receive the post.
The proceedings in the Schley case
during the past week have, on the
whole been less favorable to the Ad-
miral. Neglect to take steps to de-
molish the batteries atLCienfuegos or
to move vigorously to ascertain whether
or not the Spanish ships were there,
seem to have been proved. It is ar-
gued that if Captain i.cCalla could
communicate with the insurgents in
._e first place, there was no reason
why Schley should not have done the
same, despite the apparently studied
neglect to inform him of the signals
agreed upon. Also, the evidence seems
to demonstrate that there was no need
for him to start for Key West for coal;
this, however, will proba,,.y be cleared
up when the defense gets a chance.
The insinuation by one witness that
Schley was personally afraid is simply
too ridiculous to discuss.
At last an official statement has been

made in regard to the disease with
which Admiral Sampson is suffering.
It is a form of "aphasia," a complaint
which attacks both the memory and
tae speech. A pa,.ent suffering with it
will talk along, thinking that he is
saying certain words, when as a matter
of fact he is raying nothing but gib-
berish. Furtncr, he will be convinced
that he remembers things that as a
matter of fact do not and never did
exist. 'i he worst of it is that the Navy
Department admits that Sampson has
been suffering with this since long be-
fore the Spanish War, and that it was
growing on him all the time, the at-
tacks increasing in frequency. It is
well known in the Navy that he had
such a severe attack shortly after the
battle of July 3, that Admiral Watson,
who, though his senior, was his second
in command, at one time almost decid-
ed that he would have to call a medi-
cal board to pass upon his condition,
with the certainty that it would order
him home asphysically unfitted for act-
ive service. These facts might serve
to clear up some of the charges against

There is little doubt that the day of
the Southern delegate in Republican
conventions is past. The Payne plan
of having representation there propor-
tioned to the party vote in each State
instead of to the total population
(which practically permitted the negro
delegates to dictate the Republican
nominee) was to have been adopted ny
the last national convention and would
have been but for the personal opposi-
tion of President McKinley, who con-
sidered that he, as unopposed candidate
for the nomination, would be taking
an unfair advantage by consenting to
disfranchise the negroes who had elect-
ed him for the first time. The plan
was therefore allowed to go over till
1904, despite the fact that a majority
of the convention then favored it, but
it will undoubtedly be taken up when
the next convention meets. Mr. Payne
has been here conferring with Mr.
Roosevelt about it, and it is under-
"One day last winter a lady came to
my drug store and asked for a brand
of-cough medicine that I did not have
in stock" says Mr. C. R. Grandin, the
popular druggist of Ontario, N. Y.
"She was disappointed and wanted to
know what cough preparation I could
recommend. I said to her that I
could freely recommend Chamberlain's
Cough 'Remedy and that she could
take a bottle of the remedy and after
giving It a fair trial if she did no and
it worth the money to bring back the
bottle and I would refund the price
paid. In the course of a day or two
the lady came back in company with a
friend in need of cough medicine and
advised her to buy a bottle of Cham-
berlain's Cough Remedy. I cons..der

stood has secured his approved. The
new plan is that adopted in practically
all State conventions, where the coun-
ties are represented according to party
strength and not actual population. It
will do away with the mercenary ne-
gro "patriot" who has always been so
much in evidence in Republican con-
ventions, and make way for the clean-
er party that Mr. Roosevelt, like Mr.
McKinley, is trying to build up in the

Gooch's Mexican Syrup has cured hou-

tion is the result of the food material
that should go to support the body and
susain life being absorbed and thrown
off in tuberculous matter. To over-
come this waste of vital force and re-
store the nourishment to the system in
its natural course, is to cure. This is
accomplished by Gooch's Mexican
Syrup. It controls coughs, night
sweats, spitting of blood, soreness in
chest, inflamed throat and lungs, diffi-
culty of breathing, heavy coughs ac-
companied with -expectoration, and
parched lips. We know you have been
disappointed many times, but make
one more effort to save yourself. You
can buy a bottle of Gooch's Mexican
Syrup for 25 cents. It cures a simple
cough as if by magic, and is the best
remedy for whooping cough.

All Doctors have tried to cure CA-
l ARRH by the use of powders, acid
gases, inhalers and drugs in paste
jorm. Their powders dry up the mu-
m uous membranes causing them to
crack open and bleed. The powerful
Sacids used in the Inhalers have en-
tirely eaten away the same mem-
branes that their makers have aimed
to cure, while pastes and ointments
cannot reach the disease. An old and
experienced practitioner who has for
many years made a close study and
specialty of the treatment of CA-
N TARRH, has at last perfected a Treat-

Must Be Turned Over to County Treas-
urers by the Trustees.
Editor Tallahasseean: W_ you
please publish the following for the in-
struction 0o school trustees and county
school officers:
Information has come to the office
of tme State superintendent several
times of late that certain school trus-
tees are refusing to turn over to the
County Treasurers the balance of spec-
ia, school district funds remaining in
their hands since Chapter 4678, Session
laws of 1899, was made operative. This
law, approved June 5, 1899, did not go
into edtect until the Legislature of lsti
enacted certain amendments to the
general revenue law, being Chapter
4885, approved May 31, lbp1.
Chapter 4678, made operative
through the enactment of Chapter 4885,
requires the Comptroier and Tax Col-
lectors to pay all special tax school
district funds to the County 'i reasurers
who are directed to hold them to the
credit of each special tax school dis-
trict, ano are liable for such funds up-
on their official bonds as for other
county revenues. See section 12.
County Treasurers are directed to
pay out of these funds for teachers' sal-
aries ot for other educational purposes
upon warrants of county school boards
based upon teachers' reports, or item-
lized bills, the same as other school
funds are paid out See sections 12
and 13.
The County Treasurers being made
custodians of district school funds and
there being no other agencies provided
ior the disbursement of these funds
except through these officers, as all
other sub-district school laws were re-
pealed by Chapter 5,000, approved May
31, 1901, there is nothing else for school
trustees t. do but turn over to the
County Treasurer the district school
funds left in their hands. Of course
they do not propose to appropriate
them to their own use, anu there is
no legal provision authorizing their
using them for educational purposes.
The opinion of the Attorney-Genera]
upon this question was sought and ren-
dered as follows :
Tallahassee, Fla., Oct. 14, 1901.
Hon.'W. N. Sheats,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Sir: I am of the opinion tha. the
special tax school moneys now in the
hands of the school trustees, as well
as such moneys hereafter to oe col-
lected, should be paid over to the
County Treasurers,
Very truly yours,
In view of the above, school trustees
are directed to turn over immediately
all school district funds now in their
possession to the County Treasurers
taking duplicate receipts therefore, and
filing one copy with the county school
boards, who are require- to GeIp L
strict account of the fund and faith
fully report all receipts and abuse
meats to the State Department.
By attending to this ouy prompUtl
the trustees will greatly facilitate the
work of the County Superintendenti
and boards in marsging apd reporting
these funds.
County school oicers are directed ti
use this eomniuntrtlon in inhistin
that such transfers be made and re
port to the State Superin*e-4eet bb
the 16th of november all boards o

District Attorney Stripling Severely
Arraigns Strikers.
District Attorney Stripling has been
investigating matters at Tampa. In
his official report to Washington, he
discloses a state of affairs that prob-
ably never before existed anywhere.
He says:
"Having satisfied myself that it was
impracticable to secure any evidence
which would justify a criminal prose-
cution in the Federal Courts, I made
an effort to bring the manufacturers
and strikers together, with a view to
.adjusting their differences, and thus
restore peace and order.
"On the part of the manufacturers,
it was represented to me tnat the labor
organization known as the Resistencia
union had become so domineering in
its demands that a further toleration of
the condition of affairs brought about
by its action was impossible.
"The Resistencia Union is a local or-
ganization, and practically controls all
cigarmakers in Tampa. The employ-
ment of operatives who were not mem-
bers of that organization was prohibit-
ed in factories controlled by it; and It
appears that all of the factories In
Tampa, except three, were under its
domina uon. The causes which led up
to the strike are said to be about as
follows: The Resistencia made a for-
mal demand upon the manufacturers
to force the three factories, which em-
ployed members of the Intrnational
Labor Union, a branch of Lhe Ameri-
can Federation of Labor, to put them
under the same rules and regulations
which governed the Resistencia. A
short while thereafter Messrs. Cuesta,
itey & Co. established a small branch
of th ir factory In Jacksonville. The
R73istencia dempnd- 1 t' tb-' branch
factor- in Jacksonville be closed, and
upon their refusal to comply, made a
demand upon all of he manufacturers
in Tampa to take steps to compel
Messrs. Cuesta, Rey & Co. to Vlose
their branch in Jacksonville; and gave
notice that unless these demands were
complied with a general strike would
be declared, and that if this was done
the membLer of the Resistencia would
not again return to work without an
increase of ,rom three to five dollar's
per thoiisnd upon the present pri.cs
paid fior making cigars. From all the
information I could obtain, there is
probably no place in the world where
better wa.;,.s arc. T !. The ma.,.I.,
turers declined to interfere with the
business of Cuesta, Rey & Co., ana
thereupon a general strike was declar-
ed on or about the 28th day of July.
"The Resistencia was so completely
in control of the cigar industry of
STmpa that the manufacturers had
conceded to it the right to appoint a
foreman in each of their factories, and
fix his wages, and all work was con-
ducted under his supervision, to the
, exculsion of the owner oi the factory.
The manufacturers were not even per-
* "For three days and nights I suf-
fered agony untoi Arom an attack of
- cholera morbus brought on by eat-
- ing cucumbers," says M. E. Lowther,
r clerk of the district court, Centerville,
Iowa. "I thought I should surely die,
and tried a dozen different medicines,
but all to no purpose. I sent for a
bottle of Chamoerlain's olic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy and three
doses relieved me entirely." 'ihis rem-
edy is for sale by Wiight & Bro. and
all medicine dealers.
mitted to go into the workrooms, and
would be ordered out whenever they
attempted to do so, under penalty of a
strike. The Resistencia dictated the
quality and the size of the cigars to be
Manufactured, and the prices to be
Said for making them. Strikes were
Frequently ordered for very frivolous
l causes, and often from causes over
Which the manufacturers had no con-
Strol. As an illustration of this, a
Soridge which was erected by and under
control of the city on one occasion was
out of order, and the cigarmakers
r struck to compel the manufacturers to
use their influence with the city au-
Sthoritie* to have the bridge repaired.
I t was represented -y the manufactur-
ers and members of the board of trade
that the Resistencia had reached the
point where an order, instead of going

places of business, under penalty of a
boycott They had carried their wor,- T t D ld n a
to such an extent that business men
wno did not belong to the Resistencia
could not have meals served to them
in any of the restaurants controlled by
the union, and notd-ing was served to
any o- the patrons of the restaurants
except articles which were bought from
places controlled by them. Their pur-
pose seemed to be not only to control
manufacturing circles in Tampa, but
to control every other line of business.
The Potcy of the union was so op-
pressive, and had gone to such an ex-
tent, until finally, when tire strike was
declared, it appears that almost every
man not connected with the union rose
up, declaring that the work of t le Re-
sistencia had already gone too far, and
that it must come to a conclus.L qn.
in my conversation with the bxecu-
tive committee of the union th y de-
clared that the object of the strike was
to compel Cuesta, Rey & Co. td close
Lueer branch factory in Jaekville,
and to enforce higher wages among the
workmen. Before the strike w de-
ciareu, the union requested the inter-
vention of the Board of Trade o use
their influence in their behalf, and I 1
