M e~n7phis, Ten n. Jan., 1 s t, 1902

DEAR SIR:
I offer myself as a candidate for Judge of the Criminal
Court of Shelby County. I am 45 years of age and a Democrat. I have
lived in the City of Memphis for 30 years, and ever since becoming of
age have voted a straight Democratic ticket.
Having applied myself from the plow handle and other walks
of life to the honorable profession of Law. I now offer to serve my
people as their Criminal Judge if it is their wish.
Why do I make this offer, and vary from my profession?
1st Because: I am ambitious to show you what a man may
accomplish by steady work and applying himself to that end.
2nd Because: If you elect me as your Judge I will show you
and the world what stuff there is in me.
3rd Because: i feel that it takes a man of strong, plain
views, with the narrow path as a thing of the past.
4th Because: I beleive the day has come for our young men to
take hold and not to depend on our fathers.
5th Because: I feel that I would be inspired with every
quality to ~do good for the people, if I should have the opportunity.
This is the time for you to think and cast your vote for one who
will give good results. I honorably ask you to give me a fair con-
sideration.
Remaining very truly,
Your Humble Servant
W. A, DUNCAN,

7Ho"! thisj i; c~onf~i3cidenial, Taliaferro andii his crowdc are .I:1ating a

strenuous effort to control thze meeting of thle rtate: committee and: to

elect McKinstry, o Gain'esvi'lle, chairman of~ the 3tatei committee,

and also to so ma~nasge saffairs Rs to do away with a2 primaary for U., S.

Senators two years from now, when Taliaferro's successor is to be

el-ected., They are ;othing:ii every possible endeavor to elect MicKinstry, and

to defeat Arthur W~illiamos wh~o is be~ing2 support eR by practically

all of our friends on the committee. We legitimately hanve qul~ite a

good majority of the coal~ittee, that is, there is a considerable majority

Key West,Fla. Oct 17th, 1903



N.B3.Broward,Esgr.

Jacksonville,Fla.

My dear Captain:-

Now that your candidacy' for governor has been official-

ly announced I hasten to write yrou on a matter th!at I touched up-

on, if you will~ remember, the day I 'met you up on the reef, an~d

.I will mak~e my reasons apparent. If I had no personal ambition to

satisfy I would be glad to enlist myself in your service in the

coming campaign, but I will do so all the more energetically be-

cause I am after something myself. In the recent city election

I was elected Aldermian at large leading that ticket by 83 votes

*and leading in every ward. I have been appointed Chairman of Fi-

'nance Comm~ittee, and will thus, between this time and the Gtener-

al Elections be able to comm?3and ruch more influence than I would

otherwise have done. I am going into the Democratic primaries as

a candidate for the off ice of County Clerk, andl I want to say

that I have a good pull already and am going to win. I have con-

sidered every phase of the question and I know that if I make

your fight my fight I will strengthen myself here. It only rests

with you to accept the services which I offer. I do not yet know

how my principle opposition will allign itself, but am. inclined

to hazard the guess that it will be for Davis., In any event I

proPmise you confidently that my advocacy of your cause wiill do you

good in proportion to the effort I make. I have made no entang-

ling alliances, I.have good strong, energetic rollovers and sup-

portersand my policy is cl--la ouit andr would- be in7 line w~itih yourT

own. If my opposition espouses your cause ( and for your sake I

hope it will) I am still at your service regardless of anything

that may happen, except your voluntary withdrawal. I am strong

with the Cuban vote now and. I realize that my efforts with in

your behalf will inch that vote. With hardly any exception in

the last election every Cuban vote I got was a single shot which

caused me to run ahead. of the o he~2r elected alderman. I had thie

endorsement also of the Labor Reform Assn. and am on its execut-

ive committee. As chairman of the Finance Col;m on the board I

will not be called upon to commit myself on any policy which may

tend to weaken me in any direction. I am writing you these things

so that you may understand tihat I am in to win, that I have laid

my wires to accomplish the result I aim at, and that I intend to

blend energetic action and intelligence in this fight.

I would be glad to place myself at your service all over the

State as well as in zThis County. If mny opposition lines up against

you, I fully realize t at I can do more good for myself by mak-

ing an active fight for you that I can by coming out for myself

alone. You cannot entrust the management of your campaign? in this

County to one who will work harder for your cause or who will gain

for you a larger vote in this County. I will give you a square

deal and after I once undertake your cause will maintain it to tgo

finish. If you can get a united front here so much tl-e better, I

will stand by you anyway. I know the points inl your favor to draw

votes here and aftt#you may have laid them down for me I will

be able to present them so that they will be effective. Let me hear

from you at once, as this community is peculiar and once committed

will stick to their man. Davis has written to friends here and the

are already displaying some activity. If.you request it I will

Hon. F. B(. Broward,

Jacksonville, Pla.

Miry Dear Sir:---

Your esteemed favor of the 7th inst. came

duly to hand and has been carefully noted.

On account of some official engagements during the

latter part of this month and the early part of December I

do not, see my way clear to make any suggestion at this time,

but will bear the same in mind and will discuss it at length

with you during our trip to Clear W~ater and through South

Florida next week.

Yours very truly,

W. W. THOMPSON. Pub~lisher.. ,.,





K~ey Wv~est, Dec. 30, 1905.

Capt. N. B. Broward,

Jacksonville, Fla.

Dear Sir:-

Received your obeck for cigars, for which accept our thanks. ::Jill put

you on our mailing / ff f list and send you the paper to your address in Jack-

sonville.

Wr~e were very muchr disappointed when you did not come here after the

meeting at St. Petersburg, but we feel that you will get here j7ust as soon as

you can. Politics as far as the State Candidates are coODerned are very quiet

and will remain so until some of you fellows come down here and stir us up.

;';e have not as yet persuaded Browne to make the race for Congrese,iLut hope to do

so before it is too late.

Those with whom I have talked here say that there is no doubt that you

will be the "'whole thing" down here. They all /~ regard you as a genuine "Conoh"

and you know what that means when it; comes to voting with us.

The Inter-OceaD is aS yet WithOut & Ohoice. Our policy demands that

wPre be reticent until it is time to get into the fight, then you may rest assured

that we will makre ourselves heard from Tortugas to Pensacola.

Sincerely yours,

Mlr. President: --


I rise to a point of personal privilege:

This morning, the Ge~ntleman from thF 24th Dis~tric

arose on a3 question of personal privllege andJ made~ thel following :;;

statement:--

n On yesterday the G~ntlemnan from the 30th~ District read ,:
a document which was compiled from information obtained
from th~ormation aid documents out of the icomptroller's
Office: F. In this statement appeared an item of' about 'C
~71,000.00 was paid in cash to S. I. W~ailes. ISAE
THAT NO MONEY RAD BPEN PAID FOR SERVICES IN\ COHdNECTION T
WITH THE LAND DEPARTMENT BUT THAT 00L. WAILES WAS "AID ~
IN LAND ONLY."
--i?


and in support 'of his assertion, he presctnt~d a letter written by'

the Secretary of the Trustees, May 12, 1890, over fifteen years ago.

The several contracts of the Trustees of thle Internal

Improvement Fund of Florida with S. I. Walles provide that he shall

be paid as follows:--

(I ) wenty gpr cent of -all moneys paid over to the State

on account of swamp lands purchassed from thp U~nfitd S6tates prior.

the third day of March, 1857, unrier the Acts of March -2 1855 AA

which-were selected prior to 1861 .
