The public press wields a great
influence upon the community in
which it circulates, either for good
or for evil. It is the auditory
nerve, so to speak, of the people
and consequently wields more or
less influence, according to its
ability. I desire therefore through
the columns of your paper to say
a few words, by way of eliciting
some information upon a subject
of vital importance to all.
It is this: Some time about the
beginning of the year, two large
christian denominations in their
sessions (the Methodist in their
annual conference at Jacksonville,
and the Baptists in convention at
leesburg) addressed the following
resolutions to the legislature of the
stave of Florida:
"We, the undersigned voters of
the state of Florida, respectfully
petition that at the approaching
session of your honorable body
you will enact such suitable legis legislation
