Hon. ,. B, Broward, Governor,

Tallahassee,

Fla.

Dear Sir:-

Presumin~r that you understand the nature of our business and

have perhaps tried other Bureaus -with some dissatisfaction, we write so-

liciting a test of our work, We have a chain of offices crossing the

country and believe that in our own readin- rooms we handle more papers

than are read by any three other Bureaus in the world, Our rates are

the lo-ecst that such thorough work will permit. we shall be pleased to

serveo Yo.L at the rates indicated on the enclosed order-blank. We will

ubmnit estimate of cost of service on any other topics you may designate.

Service can be discontinued on a veek's notice if found undesirable, so

that the expense of a test need not in any event be large.

Very truly yours,

LUCr'S PRESS CLIPPING BUREAU.

We read of DIFFERENT papers more than are read by any two other bureaus in
the World; including duplicates, triplicates, etc., we read more than are read by any
four other bureaus in the World.

ESTABLISHED IN 1888







Luce's Bureau
first developed its business in personal lines, and the value of LUCE'S CLIPPINGS to
Public Men, Officials, Financiers, Lawyers, Reformers, Clergymen, Authors, Actors,
Musicians-all who are interested in what the newspapers and periodicals say about
them -is so obvious as hardly to need explanation.
To the political candidate the Bureau is a big boon. The bulk of the clippings come
from papers that he does not ordinarily see, cannot easily get at, has not time to read.
From them he learns the strength and the weakness of his opponent, sees where he can
fortify his own candidacy, learns what pitfalls to avoid, finds who are really his friends.
Campaign committees and managers find clippings useful in much the same way, posting
them on the development of the campaign and the nature of the local work.
For every public man it is important to know the sentiments of his constituents on the
questions he may have opportunity to debate, in order that he may keep in touch with
them, and not needlessly run counter to their wishes. Furthermore, clippings furnish
material for many a speech and many a magazine article.
So far as curiosity goes, the families of public men are often more interested in what
is said of them than are the public men themselves. Many persons holding office have
ordered clippings partly to gratify the interest of wives, children, or parents.
Another element of value in clippings not to be ignored is what may be called their
biographical or auto-biographical value. Statesmen formerly had time to keep voluminous
diaries; today they can rarely attend to such matters. Clippings will serve somewhat the
same end.







Departments, Commissions, Bureaus, Etc., order clippings to secure data for statistical
work, material for publication, information to aid operations, or comments to gauge public
opinion.
Governors, Mayors, Public Officials, Heads of Departments now almost invariably have
their secretaries keep scrap-books for record and reference.
Press agents of amusements, of railroads, of financial enterprises, with our help can
show their employers how widely the matter they send out has been circulated.
Corporations keep posted by clippings about State and municipal legislation affecting
their interests; the attitude of the press; public sentiment; attacks on general policies or
the acts of agents and subordinates; the work of competitors, and particularly criticisms of
rival systems or undertakings; accidents that may result in damage suits; court decisions;
financial operations; causes that may affect the market; as well as all mention of them-
selves in print. All railroads use clippings. Some of them still maintain costly reading
departments of their own, but others find it more economical and effective to use our eyes.
To the man with a hobby, whether it be philately, numismatics, chess, whist, golf,
motoring, or any other of the thousand and one things that serve as avocations or recrea-
tions, the Bureau is a labor saving device that helps gratify tastes and ambitions. In the
way of gathering "scraps," it does for any man what no man could do by himself.

How LUCE'S BUREAU can best aid You, perhaps you are in a better position to
determine than we. Let us know your needs in the line of press clippings. No matter what
the subject, if it is treated in the newspapers or periodicals of the world, we can cover it.






That Is Not All

As a matter of fact, LUCE'S BUREAU has developed the use of clippings in other
directions more extensively than any other bureau.
LUCE'S CLIPPINGS are used by about Two, Hurnldre TRADE AND CLiSs PI-InLIIATIONS.
To all intents and purposes we are the Exchanviq Editors for there pub[,llicJrirn, and can
do the work far more thoroughly and satisfactorily, with our force of on,' hundri redl pi.,p
than any one exchange editor could possibly do it, and at only a fraction of the cost, S. nil
for printed matter on the subject and special rate for service.
LucE's CLIPPINGS are used in CONSTRUCTION lines most extensively, and no other
source of advance information can furnish this iforniation so promptly, ihoriuijhly, and
systematically. Send for Booklet on the subject.
LUCE'S DAILY REPORTS cover special information which will help manufacturers
in nearly every line of trade to sell their goods. giving them earliest news of new '-.,nii-.ri,
intended purchase of material, etc. Send for book let and sample copies.
LUCE'S CLIPPINGS furnish names and addresses of people in the market for a'Ids of
all descriptions, remedies, and supplies. Send for Booklet on the subject.
There is hardly an individual, business house, manufacturer, corporation, or organiza-
tion that LUCE'S CLIPPINGS cannot help. Let us know your needs and we will make an
estimate of cost.







Souvenir Albums
Luc'Cs S-'R.\P-BOO'KING DEPARTMENT turns out Suuvenir Albums on all .orts of
subjects, sueh as Yacht Races and other Contests, Conventions. Celebrations, Eql.,,sitbins,
Weddings. Birthdays, and all other happenings where there is newspaper comment that it is
desired to preserve in a mariner ittitng the occasion. Our work is neatly and carefully done,
the clippings lunl.-e otherv.ise ordlre..il being ninunted on heavy gray cardboard sheets.
of appropriate sli;e ; each clippin- has at its lead the name and date of the publication from

Preserve Your Clippings.



It is worth anybody's while to take some
pains for securing the proper preservation of
what may be printed about any happening of
more than passing interest, or relating to any
particular topic where a record of discovery,
development, or comment may have value.
It is worth any business man's while to store
his information so that it can be reached
surely, quickly and easily; to keep copies of
his ads. and those of his competitors; to pre-
serve trade-bringing pointers, practical ideas
on business and office methods, market quota-
tions, etc., etc.
It is worth any professional man's while to
collect current news bearing on his line of
work, criticisms, reports of addresses, anecdotes
for use on the platform, data for speeches and
articles.
We describe herewith the best scrap-book
devices we have been able to find. They can
be bought at our New York or Boston offices;
or will be delivered as may be directed, the
most satisfactory way being by express,
customers paying charges.

THE "PERFECT" SCRAP-BOOK.
For the compact and convenient preservation
of clippings, this book is in many particulars un-
surpassed. It is made of stout manila leaves
pleated to form
pockets, into
1. which the clip-
pings are slipped
without the use of
paste. Folded
properly,the head-
ing of each article
comes above the flap of the pocket, making self-
indexing natural and quick reference easy.
As no pasting is done, the beauty of the scheme
is that the contents can be shifted at will, out-of-
date matter removed, new information on any
given topic filed with that already on hand. Sin-
gle articles can be taken out for temporary use in
the course of a speech, a sermon, a suit, or a busi-
ness transaction. This makes it an ideal book for
a public man. For business houses it is particu-
larly useful where matter bearing on any one
enterprise comes along at intervals and ought to
be filed together,-the more so because cards,
memoranda, or even letters can be filed along with
the clippings.

hold Edition, 12 pages, Board Cover, $.5o. All
editions half bound and of same dimensions, 9 xI 1,
three pockets to a page. Capacity six times that
of any ordinary book of corresponding size.

ClkIPPIJNG FILES.
When we want a scrap-book from which any of
the leaves can be removed as occasion may require,
we use the Pilot Letter File, with sheets of manila
cardboard cut to letter size and having holes
punched in the side to fit the tubes that do the bind-
ing. These tubes receive staples that serve also for
temporarily holding the contents lifted off for in-
serting a leaf in the middle of the volume, so that
the leaves already in are never disarranged when
adding or removing any.
The beauty of this idea is that leaves can be
taken out in a moment for use outside the office; or
when the clippings get stale, the pages can be re-
placed by fresh ones; or as a collection of clippings
grows, it can be classified.
The importance of that last point can be real-
ized by anybody who has started a collection of
scraps, pasting them in a book consecutively, and
later has wanted to classify for systematic preserv-
ation and reference. His inevitable regret will never
be the lot of the man who takes advantage of the
expansible virtues of the loose leaf plan. It has the
same brand of merit you find in card catalogues and
elastic book-cases. It suits the need.
Letters and other papers can be filed with the
sheets of clippings if desired. The file without the
cardboard is in many ways the best on the market.
It is like a book, with stout covers, cloth back and
corners, well and substantially made.
We sell the files at 50 cents each, 70 cents if
to be mailed; the perforated cardboard sheets at
50 cents a hundred. A file with 100 sheets, for ONE
DOLLAR, is about the right thing for a starter.
Customer pays the expressage.

THE "IDEAL" SCRAP-BOOK.
This is the best book we have seen for holding
compactly a large number of clippings in fixed
position. Its pages have dotted lines of adhesive
20,uCEhRup and
Opl EdD own, to
.11 7 ,;fi. hichone
Sedgeofthe
F lippingg
07I- fastened
t.:I slight-
ly moist-
ening it and pressing it gently. These lines are
near enough together to let the clippings overlap
each other, shingle fashion, so that the capacity
of a page is three times more than usual.
An advantage of fastening by an edge is that
both front and back of clipping can be examined.
The covers are separate and are bound with
the leaves by staples or lacing, (making the two
styles in which the book is offered,) so leaves can
be easily removed, and new ones inserted.
Telescope Back-Expansion Covers.
The covers are handsome, dignified, and of
the best workmanship, making a book fit to orna-
ment any library or parlor table. Size, 9% x- i i2,
50 pages, holding 3850 inches of printed matter.
Fullcloth. Price $1.75. Add 30 cents for mail de-
livery; express is preferable and usually cheaper.
Open Back-Laced Covers.
This style will serve any temporary purpose,
or answer admirably where elegant appearance is
of no great consequence. Same size and capacity.
Price, $1.20. Add 20 cents for postage.

/
--- /ers have elapsed sAnce the em.nciepation of the


negro slaves of the South. For a fev; years, immediately after the war,


feeling ran high, between the v.hite people of the :oouth and the negroes,


as the nerrons, recently freed, in some instFnces, made themselves very


disaHreeable to the white people of the lonth, but this feeling gradually


subsided. Almost immediately after the nivil var, free schools were in-


stitutr.ii in the ?tate of Florida, for the children of both races, but


tPuht in separate houses. Th# syst.- has been kept up in this statelfpmi


the taxes collected from the common tax assessment rolls of both races


the expense of building and maintaining the schools are ip id. Ho friction


or irritFtion ]as existed in this State, on this subject. There has been


no agitation of the subject, as in some other States, t~e-i-t: That


the expense of runniin- the negro schools should be derived from the


assessment and collection from noero property, and the expense of running


white schools, should be derived from the assessment and collection


from the property of the white people. In tact, no question has arisen


to cruse any disturbance, yet it is apparent to even the cPsunl oh-


server that the relation between the two rFees is becoming more nF5fY-


able. Th- negroes today have less friendship for the white people,


than they have ever had since the civil war, and the white people have


less tolerance and sympathy for the negro, It is my opinion that the


two rfces will not, for any great length of time occupy the same ter-
/. /
ritory without friction1 and outbreaks of d..ihwwke betv:een the two.

Hon. Napoleon B. Broward,

Tallahassee, Fla.

Dear Governor Broward:

Complying with your request I have interviewed as many people as

possible concerning the judgship of this Circuit, and now report the sit-

uation as I find it.

To begin with, I am convinced that at the last moment I was with

you yesterday I did a very foolish thing. I refer to my application for

the Secretaryship. I now find myself in the unfortunate and embarrass-

ing position of attempting to get a man promoted out of a position I

have applied for, and upon maturer reflection I feel chagrinned and hu-

miliated by it. The inspiration came suddenly and I suddenly mentioned

it to you, without considering the position I was placing myself in.

But I cannot undo it now. The spoken word sometimes has an unpleasant

habit of staying spoken. Neither can I turn abrubtly and say I would

not care to have the position, because that would be untrue. But, Gov-

ernor, please forget it in connection with the appointment of Judge.

Believe me, I would not, for any position in the power of the State to

give, express a sentiment or opinion counter to my conscientious feel-

ing in the matter. Or, if you can't forget it, then consider my appli-

cation withdrawn.

In the limited time at my disposal I have not been able to inter-

view as many people as I would wish to, but I have tried to first get

an opinion from as many different view-points as possible, and then to

ascertain through others the sentimentsAwho are beyond my reach. I find

a noticeable laxity of interest in the matter among laymen, and many of

them say frankly that theyhave given it no thought. Most of them say

they scarcely know Mr. Wolfe, but do not fancy the idea of Mr. .'atson's

appointment. All of them express disapproval of the manner in which

Mr. Watson's campaign has been conducted.

One prominent man said he would like to see Mr. Watson get the ap-

pointment because he seemed to be trying hard to succeed, but that he

did not fancy the idea of "aJudge succeeding himself by proxy." He vol-

unteered to say further that, from what he had seen and heard of Mr.

Wolfe, he believed his age and experience better qualified him for the

position, and that he believed "he would take better with the people."

Quite a number say thei they believe Mr. Watson's candidacy to have

been planned and launched by a "ring" or"clique", and they "hope Gov-

ernor Broward will show them that he has the manhood to sit down on

them good and hard." A limited number express the belief that the mat-

ter was first planned between two very prominent attorneys, whose name1'

I hardly need mention, with a view to getting a Circuit Judge who would

be favorable to them, they already having a federal and Criminal Court

Judge secure.

One man said he was opposed to Mr. wolfe's appointment, and expressed

the hope that we would not "be afflicted with that fellow". I asked him

for his reasons, and he said he was informed that Mr. Wolfe had made him-

self very obnoxious to many of the best people of his home town of Pen-

saoola. He also expressud atron'p: liunpp)rowvnl of tho methods employed

by Mr. Watson's friends, and said ho wold be glad to see both of them

miss it.

One lwyor nnidr he hnd tiund erk-d watuin, annd lh did not feel that he

could withdraw hin rnndnrnemenrt, lont the Gtovorno should fail to under-

stand his poullt Lo.i, hut that ht hoF od Won rti would g:ot the appointment.

Another said he endorsed Watson, and felt like he ought to be kicked for

being duped, but that he did not now care which of the two men got the

place.

One other lawyer who endorsed Mr. Watson, and who says he and Mr.

Watson are very close friends, says if he were in the Governor's place

he would appoint Wolfe, for four reasons: first, as a rebuke to the

methods employed in Watson's behalf; second, because Wolfe is better

qualified to fill the position; third, because he would be more satis-

factory to the people; and fourth, because he stands with the Governor

and for the things he and his friends stand for, while Watson and the

majority of his advocates stand on the other side.

I learn from a prominent man in Holmes County that many of the peo-

ple theraare much wrought up, and although they know little of Mr. Wolfe

personally, the majority of them favor his appointment. In fact, he

used the words that"no one there favored watson except the two lawyers,

who are his cousins, and Mr. and Mr.

who are both identified with big corporations."

One man here who is the moving spirit of two corporations says he

would deem it a calamity to have Wolfe appointed. He knew nothing upon

which to base his opinion, he said, except that he had heard he was a

man of strong and lasting prejudice, and used all means to make it un-

pleasant for those who opposed him.

Upon the whole, I am persuaded that the masses, as a whole, would

be pleased with the appointment of Mr. Wolfe, and that after they see

him on the bench and compare him with Mr. Watson, they will adjudge him

the more fit of the two.

N. B. B. #4.


It is my candid opinion, as expressed to you yesterday, that the

rank and file are not interested very much, and when they hear that a

new Judge is on the bench they will take it as a matter of course, merely

wondering what he will be like. If you should ever feel called upon to

give a reason for his appointment, you will have such reason as will be

absolutelyAto them at your immediate command.

Since I have been writing this letter (for I am using the machine

myself) a prominent lawyer has come in to loaf with me a while, and we

have gone over the situation together. I knew him to be a close personal

friend of Mr. Watson's and therefore approached him cautiously, although

he is a very intimate friend of mine. I knew also that he was among the

first to endorse Watson, and although I believed him to be somewhat ruf-

fled at some things in connection with that endorsement, I knew that he

had never withdrawn it. But when he caught my "drift" he opened up

like a chestnut burr, and said 3a ft that under present conditions

it seemed to him that Tolfe would be the proper man for the place. He

went further and said he felt like the Governor was in an embarrassing

position, in that it seemed to him, and he believed it seemed to the

Governor, as if good conscience and the best interests of the people

and principles concerned demanded Wolfe's appointment, while those who

are close to the Governor, and whose good will and friendship he wishes

to keep above all others, clamor for the appointment of Watson. He then

paid some very flattering tributes to Mr. Wolfe's ability and devotion

to principles he believed to be right, even though he thereby made en-

emies of those whose friendship it might reasonably be expected that he

would wish to keep.

These enumerations do not, by any means, cover my entire investi-

gations, but I have merely given specimens of public sentiment as I have

heard it expressed. I said to you yesterday that I believed the major-

ity of Mr. Watson's endorsers were now very lukewarm, and a little lim-

ited investigation among the local bar, together with conversations with

two attorneys on my way home yesterday, persuades me that I expressed

it in the mildest terms the situation will permit of.

I have here endeavored to give you a true epitome of the situation

as it looks to me, without consciously favoring either applicant, and .

trust it will aid you in making your decision. If I can be of further

service to you in this or any other matter, you have but to command me.

WhRn I was at Tallahassee Mrs. Simmons was away from home at the

bed-side of her sick father, and upon my return home I receive tidings

of his rather unexpected death.

Give my regards to Mrs-. Broward, the girls, Miss Douglass and

"der Captain".

I have written this very hurriedly and in the midst of much in-

terruption, so that it will probably need considerable "proofing",

but I trust it will serve a useful purpose, even though not a work of

art. I submit it to you in confidence, and in the manner you directed.

It is not intended for your files in the case, nor for the public gave.

Very cordially yours,

I B., C. & ST. A. RAILROAD
OFFICES OF AND
BUTLER &SIMMONS CHIPLEY STATE BANK
LAWYER R S
CHIPLEY, FLORIDA February llth, 1907.



Hon. Napoleon B. Broward,

Tallahassee, Fla.

Dear Governor Broward:

Since writing you on the 9th inst. I have taken occasion to follow

up my investigations, and everything I have come into possession of

confirms my views as then expressed.

I have seen two politicians, one a Broward man, one an anti-Broward

man, who are both holding their ears to the ground in the hope of catoh-

ing the slightest murmur of the people's voice, and they say frankly

that Wolfe's appointment will be more popular, because the people do

not take kindly to Watson, and because they all have a pretty fair idea

of the scheme by which his application was flashed before the bar, and

want to see the last remnants of the old convention and ring-rule days

relegated to the trash-heap down the back alley of time.

Many men to whom I referred in my other letter are very prominent

men, and the number includes a Judge, a prosecuting attorney, a mayor,

a high school principal, two bankers, and others who are leading spirits

among the people. One of these men is a very close friend of Mr. Wat-

son's, and that for that reason he says he would, under ordinary oir-

cumstances, be glad to see him favored, but that he believes Mr. Wolfe

is the better man of the two for the position, and that he heartily dis-

approves of the methods that have been employed. He was so entirely

frank that I asked him to say the same things to the Governor, and it

would be treated as confidential, but he said he had opposed the Governor

from the beginning, which the Governor knows, and that h. was afraid his

letter would therefore do more harm than good. I told him I felt sure

he was mistaken, as I had good reason to believe you do not harbor po-

litical differences when it comes to the administration of your office,

and he promised to take the matter under advisement.

I do not know when you mean to publicly express your decision in

this matter, and so am sending this along, with the hope that it may

be of some further service to you.

In writing these two letters I have tried hard to disregard my own

personal feelings in the matter, and reflect the sentiments I found,

both pro and con. That is a hard task for any man to set himself, and

I am so peculiarly constructed that it becomes extremely difficult to

me,.but I have done my best and you have the result.

Please do not forget to wire me at my expense when the appointment

is made, as requested in the post-script of my other letter.

Very cordially yours,

/i_ ,Z_e

February 13th 1907.



Dear Sir,

The well-known genealogical works of my father, the late
Sir Bernard Burke (Ulster King of Arms), relating to the Peerage and
the untitled landed classes of Great Britain and its Colonies, have
long been recognized as the standard works on the subject.

The entire absence, however, of any book of reference
dealing collectively with American family history, which can be
regarded as an authority, prompted me, several months ago, to
undertake the compilation of "Ths Prominent Families Of The United
States Of America."

Although the representatives of most of the leading
families have already provided me with the necessary data, there are
doubtless many more whose claims to be included have escaped my
notice and I should be grateful for any assistance you could give
me so that my book may be complete and representative in every
respect.

In any case, I should be much obliged if you would send
for my consideration, at your earliest convenience, particulars of
your own pedigree, and, in order that fulness of detail and accuracy
may be secured, I trust you will furnish me with all the information
known to you on the subject, at the same time mentioning the sources
from which such information is derived.

I am, dear Sir,

Yours faithfully,
i h ,,

Dear Governor Broward:

It is possible that you have already announced your intention in

the matter of the appointment of a Judge for this Circuit, or that you

will have done so before this letter reaches you, but I cannot refrain

from a still further expression of my sentiments and the sentiments of

the people here.

During the last three days the public mind has grown very tense,

and since all realize that it is to be either Wolfe or Watson, every

one from whom I have heard an expression (and I have heard many expres-

sions) is anxious that Wolfe get the appointment. Even those who were

opposed to hin in the beginning say frankly that they now hope to see

him appointed. I am strongly inclined to make my assertion even stronger

by saying that everybody down this way wants to see him appointed, while

your particular friends and strong supporters openly say that common

justice to yourself, your friends and the principles for which we have

all fought so hard, demands his appointment. It is commonly talked that

Watson's appointment would be a oonceHsion to "the other side" which

would but be used as a weapon in an attempt to wrest from the people

the partial victory which they have won at such cost.

We expected that the announcement would be made before this, and

the delay causes more anxiety, and raises the fear that very strong press-

ure is being brought to bear in behalf of the "other side". Hence, the

telegram from our firm, which would have been but one of many had it been

possible to get a wire to you without goring half around the United States

and consuming from one to three days in transit.

I trust that you will excuse my much writing on this subject. My

justification lies in my belief that you want to do the will of the

people, as far as lies in your power. The matter is now up to you,

and we all feel sure you will do what to you seems to be your plain

duty. I know you are not consulting your own preferences in the matter.

That, I think, is settled, and the question with you now is, what is

the wise and proper thing to do? Whatever your decision may be, you will

hear no complaint from me; for I know the awkward position in which you

are placed, and since some one must yield, I will take the medicine like

a little man, if it falls to my lot to do so.

Now, don't get scared at yesterday's Pensacola Journal. That was

all properly timed with a view to making you feel that your name is al-

ready "mud" down in this end of the State, without further antagonizing

the few leading spirits who are asking for Mr. Watson's appointment, but

such is not the case. The people are not so gullible as the Journal

thinks. Many of them already have some kind of a vague idea that there

is another side to this attorney's fee question, and that they are not

vitally interested in it, and when it is properly placed before them,

they will see the whole situation in its true light. If I had access

to all the data I need without going to the Capitol, I would take up the

cudgel myself, but at this distance I feel that I could not do the sub-

ject the justice I usually bestow when I go into the public print. But

if I can serve you in any way in the matter, you have but to command me.

Cordially yours,

ACROSTIC SOUVENIR.


Spread aloft to the breeze "our" banner of the free
Proudly let it float, boys, a sign of liberty;
Red, to show the color of the blood that was shed
In making this great Nation free from oppression, dread;
Next snowy White, the symbol of purest womanhood
Grandly battling for our boys, to keep them pure and good,
From the hue of heaven's glory, our flag has taken the Blue,
In trials fierce fit emblem of the tried and the true:
Ever fondly let us cherish our Old Glory with all pride;
Let us fight beneath its folds, forever side by side,
Doing battle for the Right, for the weak against the strong,
Ever cheery, never weary, as we grandly march along;
In all good works the foremost, ever since, we, (long ago)
Gave "Old Glory" to our Springfield School, and, then
began to grow.
Hurrah for "Our Stars and Stripes," and for our Country, too,
Three cheers for "our" Banner, the Red, White and Blue,
Hearty cheers for old Springfield and for our teachers, dear,
Guiding us, loving us and giving us good cheer !
Remember, boys, today we joined "Old Glory's" battling
host
And enlisted, each to do his best, be always at his post,
Deserve to hear at life's close,the plaudit "WellDone,"given
"Eighth Grade, Springfield, Nineteen Seven!"

With kind regards and best wishes of
H. H. PALMER,
County Superintendent.


Jacksonville, Fla., February 22, 1907.
