There are but few places in this

Last night all the churches, the
Baptist, Methodist and Presbyterian,
gave up their evening service and
attended the service of the Christian

many were unable to gain admission.
A large delegation was also present
from each of the choirs and conse consequently

BRITISH CLAIMS Lit)
' FLORIDA ARE BOGUS
Rejort that State Owes Seven Mill Mill-IKIlars
IKIlars Mill-IKIlars to English bondholders
Editor Star: I notice an article
being published in the press stating
that British bondholders hold bonds
of nine Southern states to the
amount of $75,000,000, not includ
ing interest, which have been in de-
ault from forty to seventy years.
Among the list of these states
named as defaulting on its bonds is
the state of Florida, which is charg charged
ed charged with having defaulted on $7,000,-
00 of bonds.
Should this statement be allowed
to pass without a full explanation
as to the facts of the issue of these
$7,000,000 of bonds it is calculated
to work great injury to the state in
the minds of financiers, both in this
and foreign countries; I therefore
consider it highly important that the
press generally, and especially of this
state publish the following extract
from a statement prepared by Judge
ames B. Whitfield, of the supreme
court of Florida, in 1901, with ref reference
erence reference to this matter, which shows
clearly that the bonds referred to
are neither iagai nor moral obliga
tions of the state.
"Florida was admitted into the
nion as a state, March 3, 1845.
"The bonds herein referred to
were all issued in 1835 and 183S
when Florida was a territory.
"The act of Congress, 'to amend
an act tor tne estamisnment ot a
territorial government in Florida,'
approved March 3, 1823, by section
provides, 'that all bills to tax the
nhabitants of said territory, or
their property, shall before they be
come laws, receive the sanction of
Congress; except when said bills
shall authorize county, city or town
officers to collect taxes for the use
and benefit of their respective coun counties,
ties, counties, cities and towns f nd for other
'The Territorial Legislature or
Council of Florida in 1831 and 1835,
authorized the above mentioned
bonds to be issued, signed by the
governor and treasurer of the terri territory
tory territory to be used in the aid of certain
banks and other corporations, but
the sanction of Congress to these
territorial acts was never obtained.
"Grave doubts v ere entertained
at the time of, as weil as after the
passage of these territorial acts, as
to the power of the territorial legis
lature or council to pass them, and
t is said that the secretary of the
territory was so impressed with the
irregularity and illegality of these
acts, that he refused to attach the
territorial seal to these bonds, and
that the seal was affixed to them by
another person under the direction
of the governor of the territory.
""The territorial legislature or
council at a session on January 23,
1842, by a vote of 19 to 4 adopted
the following resolution:
" 'Resolved, That the territorial
legislature does not possess the right
nor was it ever vested with the au authority
thority authority to pledge "the faith of the
territory so as to render the citizens
of the territory responsible for the
debts and engagements of any cor
poration chartered by said territori
'These territorial acts provided
that the sale and negotiation of the
bonds issued thereunder should not
be at a discount nor for a less sum
than the amount named and express expressed
ed expressed in said bonds, and in any case
where the bonds were sold for
an amount less tnan tne amount
named and expressed therein, they
were to become forever absolutely
null and void. The journals of the
territorial legislature recite that the
bonds were sold below par.
"It is thus clear that the territori
al legislature had no power or
authority to pledge the faith of the
territory for the use and beneht ot
private corporations, and that the
bonds mentioned here were bonds il
legally issued under the territorial
government of Florida; and that
they were of no binding force upon
the territory of Florida, or the peo people
ple people thereof.
"No benefit has ever accrued to
the state or people from such bonds,
and they have never been recogniz recognized
ed recognized as a binding obligation upon the
state or the people of Florida since
the admission of the state into the
Union, March 3rd, 1S45.
"The territorial acts authorizing
the issue of these bonds in aid of
private corporations never received
the sanction of Congress, conse consequently
quently consequently they were illegally issued;
and being illegally issued and never
having been confirmed or assumed
as an obligation by the state after
its admission into the Union, it is no
repudiation for the state to fail or
refuse to pay them."
At the conclusion of his article
Judge Whitfield very properly and
truthfully states that "the state of
Florida has never repudiated, scaled,
readjusted, defaulted or delayed the
payment of any part of her public
debt, either principal or interest." i
The total bonded debt of the
state is only $6.01,367, all of which
is held by the educational funds of
the state, every warrant issued is at
par upon presentation, and I feel no
hesitancy in making
the assertion ;
that no state in the Union is in bet- i newspaper has read the "Areopagi "Areopagi-ter

tering. splintering. Brady ripped out an oath, a
wild yell of triumph echoed without.
Through a nearby loop-hole some sav savage
age savage thrust his gun, and fired blindly,
the sudden flash lighting the murk. In
the instant red glow I caught a
glimpse of the interior of a body ly lying
ing lying before the fireplace, of Schultz still
on his knees, rifle in hand, of Brady
gripping an ax, his head bare, a ghast ghastly
ly ghastly wound on the Bide of his face. Then
the smoke hid all.
Something crashed against the door,
shaking the. whole cabin; again and
again the blow fell, the tough wood
bursting asunder, the stout bar bend
ing, yet snapping back once more as
the sockets held. Amid the din of
shouts, the crash of wood, my eyes
met Braay s.
"You "re hurt?"
"Ay!" spitting out blood before he
could answer. "Jaw shot Where's
the French girl?"
I jerked my hand back in gesture.
"With her father's body, I reckon:
she promised me to keep out of it"
"Good," his eyes smiling in spite of
the intense pain of his wound. "This
ia like to be our last fight, boy. Do
you hear that? Another blow as hard,
and those devils will be at us. Don't
quit until you die."
"I know," and I reached out my
hand to him. His eyes were cool, grim grimly
ly grimly smiling, and the clasp of his fin fingers
gers fingers like a vise.
"We are men," he said slowly. "Don't
forget; lad. They will know about
this sometime down on the Ohio here
the fiends come!"
The door crashed in, the great butt
of a tree coming with it, and half
blocking the passage. All that re remained
mained remained was instantly filled with sav
age figures. Into the mass of them I
fired my last shot, the flame of dis discharge
charge discharge searing the hideous faces.
Then I was hurled to the right, shoul
der to shoulder with Schultz, gripping
my gun barrel with both hands, swing swinging
ing swinging it like a flail. I crushed the skull
of a savage, drove the butt into the
face of another;, saw the flash of a
tomahawk, held up for an instant the
soldier's reeling body, only to throw it
aside; smashed the red hand held
out to grip him as he went down; drew
back a Btep in search of more room,
and, with one mighty sweep of my
weapon cleared a circle before me
God! It was ghastly, Inhuman, devil devilish!
ish! devilish! Those behind pushed and yelled;
there was' no escapel I saw painted

slashing my arm as it felL I felt no
pain, no weakness; I was going to die,
but it would not be alone. I rushed
forward, treading on bodies, battering
at shoulders and head3. I heard yells,
shrieks, groans, cries of horror and
agony. The frenzied war-whoop rang
in my ears; an order roared out over j
the babel. I have no recollection of j
being touched, yet some force hurled j
me back. I stumbled over the bodies,
yet somehow kept my feet I was j
breathless, weak, reeling upon my
legs, everything before my eyes
shrouded in mist Yet the Instinct to
fight remained; I knew nothing else.
Suddenly I became aware that Brady j

the forest Out of the mad din in my j
ear came the sound of his voice in j
broken, breathless sentences. j
"Good boy! Good boy! Ay! That

but I was alone. I felt the force of the
rush that struck him down; it had
lifted me bodily and hurled me against
the logs. Yet I kept my feet, kept my
grip on the twisted iron, and struck
blindly. The whole cabin seemed
jammed with red demons; they piled
on me, jerked the bar from my grasp.
Once, twice, I sent clenched fist
