"I favor discontinuing the lease system and using convicts in road
"Florida needs more roads and I believe they can be best secured
by working the convicts thereon." -GIBBONS.
"Back of all reform lies the means of getting It." How shall the
convict -lease system be abolished and our good roads be built without
placing an additional burden on the taxpayer? : This Is a time to con consider,
sider, consider, and not for the hasty adoption of policies
Let us consider the plan of my opponents. Suppose we work l,t)00
convicts on the public roads, ;v The cost of the labor alone will be as
follows: -:" 'f : :
Loss of revenue now derived from lease ........ $281,600.00
Cost of maintenance (housing, guarding, etc) . f 250,000.00
Total cost of labor alone .... i ...... $531600.00 j..
Time lost from bad weather per annum
Sundays . ...
Sickness, allowing 5 per cent
Total time lost per annum. .
Actual working days .
At a yearly cost of
... . .130 days
Which let-Jus compare with the cost of free labor:
. 1,000 men hired at $1,50 a day, for 235 days ..$352,500.00
1,000 convicts "worked 235 days out of the year .$531,600.00
Or $179,1)0 a year more, than the roads wpuld cost If built by free,
labors, --..;;-; '-.'-" 1 -''
But we have not yet included the cost of building, material, en engineers,,
gineers,, engineers,, bridges, mules and machinery, which will average several
thousand dollars for every mile of road.
Where 'do Messrs. Tram mell, Watson and Gibbons
raise this money, amounting to more than a MILLION
year;, except by greatly increasing taxes?

Washington. April 13. When Will Will-lam
lam Will-lam Rockefeller, brother "of John D.
Rockefeller, and the real active direct direct-ins
ins direct-ins and financial head of the Standard
Oil Company, declared in favor of the
nomination of Oscar W. Underwood a
the democratic nominee for the presi presidency;
dency; presidency; there was little surprise in
political and legislative circles In
Washington. That the active and
militant head of the Standard Oil
Company trust should express his
preference for Mr. Underwood was in
the nature of the very fitness of things.
Mr." Rockefeller is a life long member
of the republican party, who has never
voted for a democrat, but this fact did
not" embarrass him in the least in de declaring
claring declaring Mr.' Underwood is his choice
above all others for the presidencj' of
the United States. Mr. Rockefeller's
declaration in favor of the Alabamian
was no haphazard remark, but was
furnished to the Associated Press and
carried by' wire to its thousands of
clients in every state in the union.
Th Associated Press telegram, which,
better than anything else, reveals the
true Underwood candidacy, is given
"Savannah, Ga., March 3. AVilliam
Rockefeller, in an interview today,
stated that of the men most promi prominently
nently prominently mentioned for the presidential
nomination, he favored Majority Lead Leader
er Leader Underwood, of the House of Repre Representatives.
sentatives. Representatives. His second choice is Pres President
ident President Taft."
He declared that former President
Roosevelt is a "foe to good govern government,"
ment," government," and "a dangerous man." 4
Standard Oil and other big business
is certain of the nomination of Pres President
ident President Taft,-and this element is now
struggling to control enough state
delegations to the Baltimore conven convention
tion convention to nominate a cpdidate who will
be equally desirable. Dig business is
fighting in every part of the country
for control of the democratic party in
the hope of defeating the nomination
of a real progressive at Baltimore. As
is disclosed by. Mr. Rockefeller, the
Alabama congressman meets the un unqualified
qualified unqualified approval of that element.
It is a natural deduction that the
candidacy of Xtr. Underwood typifies
the Standard Oil Company's conception
of good government, which, in the
last analysis, is:
, "Let us and our affairs alone."
Under that policy, the Standard Oil
Company has flourished like the green
ALMOST A MIRACLE
, They point to Georgia as an illustration of building roads with
convicts. But- Georgia has THREE times the population and property
-valuation of Florida, while Florida Is as large In area. It costs as.
much to build aToad for the use of 300 people as it does for3,000.
But it costs the 300 taxpayers TEN times as much.
. V CrvISniDjEn' MY PLAN
I have t formulated a plan for employing convicts that will pro-x
vide a good roads fund of several hundred thousand i dollars a year
v without' raising a dollar hy taxes. It is to place the convicts on prison
farms; one farm devoted to raising supplies for those engaged on an another
other another farm which I propose shall be located on state lands in the Ever Everglades,
glades, Everglades, devoted to the ralsing of sugar cane and the making of sugar.
My plan is practical. It is no experiment. If it is a dream, as
Mr. 'Watson says,., or an experiment, as Mr. Trammell says, why do the
Huyler candy people go. into the sugar Industry in the Everglades in instead
stead instead of In Louisiana? ' -' ; :
As to whether there are lands in the Everglades that will grow
-sugar, cane successfully, it Is sufficient to quote Dr. Harvey W.' Wiley,
ex-chief of the S. Bureau of Chemistry. In his report-on the muck
lands of the Everglades, he says: -
. "It is not necessary to dwell upon the fact that with
cane produced at such a cost, even the island of Cuba
coi)ld not" compete s with Florida In the production of sugar.
There" Is probably no other body of land In the world
which presents such remarkable possibilities as the muck
lands bordering the southern shores of Lake Okeechobee.
With a depth of soil averaging, perhaps. 8 feet, and an
extent of nearly half a million acres, with a surface almost
absolutely level, it affords promise of development which
- -reaches beyond the limits of. prophecy." (See Senate Doc Doc-.
. Doc-. ument No. 89. page 79). ; v
' ' v '-
But Mr. Trammell says we would have to levy taxes to buy the
equipment for -this farm.. We can do what Louisiana did, buy on credit
and pay for it ut ot the profits. ;
In my published 'platform I have figured the net profits at S1
v an acre, which -Mr. Trammell says Is too high and Capt. Rose and other
expert strgar men say is too low. I have a letter from a prominent
farmer in Jackson county 'in which he states over his signature that he
made' a net profit of more than 10 (h per acre on 40 acres of sugar cane
raised on pine lands;, which he manufactured, into syrup. But allow allowing.
ing. allowing. $81 profit to the acre and 10 acres to thevman. the convict would
make a profit of $810 a yean Under the present lease the state re receives
ceives receives but $28160 per convict.".-
- i- - . : .
, .. All I ask the people to do is to investigate my proposed plan
for building good roads, which at the same time prevents an increase of
taxation In abolishing the lease system, and they will find it entirely

Mr." Milton's? array of figures speak
for themselves. It 1s impossible to get
around-the stubborn fact that to take
the state convicts and set them to

at least a losing one. It, will undoubt

The Star, however, is not enraptur
ed With Mr. Milton's plan to raise rev
enue by workinsr the convicts on a
sugar farm In the Everglades.
The Star thinks that a big sugar
plantation in the Everglades, worked
by private capital, could t be made
reasonably healthy and would proba
bly pay. But it is afraid that a state
farm, worked: by convicts, and : con
ducted as a state generally conducts
such things,-would cost more than It
would come to, and also be another

die like sheep," creating a scandal
greater than any that has ever yet
sprung from a Florida public lnstitu

point. standpoint. The clamor raised against it is
mostly by people who have given the
matter very little investigation and
confuse the workings of the present
system with abuses that have happen
ed under former regimes in Florida
and. In other states. Certain it Is that
the convicts will not be any better off
when the Incentive now existing to
keep them In good health is with withdrawn,
drawn, withdrawn, and the loss of the revenue
that their labor now brings simply
means that, honest citizens will have

All the same, Mr. Milton's plan Is a
good one in theory, and if it could be
honestly carried out in practice it
would probably be the best solution of
a' troublesome- problem.

on the mountain side. : The shelf Was
