upon the desk and looked around for

sniffing the foliage of her new hat,
upon which her voice rose in a little
shriek which he evidently understood
to mean "its your turn," so he calmly

than his own length (like a Ford) and
looked toward the newly cleaned win window

from behind, which appeared less dan dangerous

horns, Mrs. Gabel managed to pilot
it through the door.
Next came a call upon Mr. Alle Alle-mand,

invitingly open. There he glimpsed
another steer just like himself in Mr.

proceeded to kiss the reflection like a

corroborates the Star's opinion that

Fort feels that he has done his duty

The Florida press should be careful

the last evening -in every county, and
every man who has come into the

of residence within the state within
that time, is required to register, and
they had as well get that fixed in their
heads. It is all right to take issue
with the state executive committee of
the democratic party on its ruling in
this matter, but it is only fair to say
that so far the state executive com committee

Editor Star: Under the above head headline

the county democratic executive com

cies vacancies in office those persona recom recommended
mended recommended by the county committee. The
people never conferred such a right on
the committee. The only person to
whom they ever gave the right to fill
vacancies is the governor, when they
adopted the present constitution.
Should the governor do otherwise
that as his judgment deems proper
vould be a plain disregard of his duty
and violation of his oath of office.
Some years ago some candidates for
governor, to catch votes, pledged
themselves to appoint men recom recommended

remember Gov. Gilchrist disregarded
the recommendations when he deemed
it proper, which was a very proper
thing to do.
The business of a party executive
committee is to attend to the party's
affairs, such as 'calling elections, etc.
March 12, 1920. R. McConathy.
We admit that Judge McConathy is
right in speaking of the law and the
people of the state in general. What
we meant and what we should have
said was that the democratic party
had conferred on its county commit
tees the right to demand of governors
elected by democratic votes that they
regard the recommendations of said
Committees in making county appoint appointments.
ments. appointments. Our mistake was in referring
to the members of the democraitc
party as the entire people an error
common enough to be excused, and
which was not much of an error until
dissension so disorganized the party
that it is difficult to tell who is a dem democrat
ocrat democrat and who isn't. This mistake,
such as it was, would not have been
made had we not written the para para-giaph
giaph para-giaph in a great hurry, trying to at attend
tend attend to other matters at the same
time. The truth is, and we do not
tnink Judge McConathy will try to
dispute it, that ever since the demo democratic
cratic democratic party, after a long and sicken sickening
ing sickening experience with republican mis-
lule, gained control of the state over
forty years ago, it has been well un
derstood and undisputed party law
that if a vacancy occurred in any
county office the governor should fill
it only on the recommendation of the
county democratic committee. The
reasons for this were two both
good one, that it stood to reason
that the members of the county com committee,
mittee, committee, chosen by the democrats of
the various precinct, were much bet better
ter better able to judge of the qualifications
of a man than the governor; another,
that it was a check on the governor
vrho might desire to build up a ma
chine. It was very seldom that any
governor disregarded this rule. When
ever he did, he always made trouble
for himself. We remember that Gov Governor
ernor Governor Jennings lost his popularity in
this, county by making an appointment
without consulting the committee.
Governor Gilchrist did the same thing,
and tho he made good appointments
he found in 1916 that the democrats
had not forgotten his disregard of
party law. As -for Gov. Catts, who
has made two appointments without
consulting the committee, it is only
fair to say that he not only made
good appointments but that the dem
ocrats have no right to expect him to
be influenced by the committee, as he
was elected as the candidate of the
prohibitionists, and democrats have jio
more right than republicans to try to
influence his appointments. It is also
the truth that sometimes a county
committee goes wrong and -recom
mends a bad man for office, in which
case, if evidence is laid before the
governor, it is not only his right but
his duty to disregard the recommen
dation. But as a general thing the
rule is a good one and it should be
revived and put to work with its old
