These people give the names of Mr.

MANY ABSENT AT McINTOSH
Candidates Had About Half a Voter
Apiece at the Saturday After Afternoon
noon Afternoon Meeting
That the people of Mcintosh are a
thrifty lot was evidenced Saturday
when the candidates for county office
appeared in that live burg for the
purpose of presenting their claims to
the voters, and only a few of said
voters attended. Mr. Tulley L. Hick-
son, who had charge of the arrange
ments, said that everybody was busy
with bean and cucumber harvesting,
and Saturday being pay-day too, it
was almost impossible for them to
be on hand. However, shortly after
three o'clock, with the voters out
numbered about two to one by the can
didates, and a number of ladies, the
speaking program was opened in the
beautiful public park pavilion.
Mr. Hickson, being master of cere
monies, introduced the speakers as
their names appeared on the pre prearranged
arranged prearranged program, which called for
Mr. L. S. Light, candidate for legis-.
lative honors, as the opening speaker.
Mr. Light, after relieving himself
of his coat and taking a hitch at his
suspenders, launched out with a line
of "figgers" showing the vast expen expenditures
ditures expenditures of the federal government as
well as the state, citing that the for
mer had increased during the Dast
five years over COO per cent, while the
state expenses during the same Der Der-iod
iod Der-iod had increased over 500 per cent.
Hp said that the pendulum must at
some time reach the turning point
and that the time is at hand. This
is the time, he said, when the people
needed a man who knew the "figures"
to represent them in the halls of the
legislature, and he claimed to be that
man, making the statement that he
was the best posted man in Florida
today along these lines. He said that
the "cards would be stacked" on the
novice, and his past experience made
him the logical man to go as our rep
resentative, instead of either one :f
the inexperienced men who were op opposing
posing opposing his candidacy. He claimed the
responsibility of killing over half a
million dollars in appropriations sub submitted
mitted submitted to the session of the legisla
ture of which he was a member, and
warned the voters against sending
his opponents there instead of him.
Mr. A. C. Blowers, the last candi
date to enter the legislatice race, be
gan hisj talk with an answer to Mr.
Light's assertion that there might be
a crooked deck sprung on the assem
bly, and said that in that event he
would immediately call for a new
deck. He stated that he was an en enthusiast
thusiast enthusiast on public education and
would not favor cutting appropria appropriations
tions appropriations for that purpose, but would
favor cutting off alleged grafting
jobs which apparently encumber the
present educational appropriations.
He said he believed that the salaries
of the gang of "inspectors" who now
infest the state should be eliminated
and the money thus squandered should
be turned toward the better pay of
our public school teachers. As to his
position on the constitutional amend amendment
ment amendment for road bonds, he said that he
would be broad enctrh to follow the
wishes of his con? i:.!;n?y regardless
of his personal viev : or. the subject.
Mr. C. W. Hunter, fir:- aspirant for
legislative honors in g-u; two, began
his address by referring to the
charges made against him that he had
no "record." He cited his activities
in various public enterprises, naming
among them taking the lead in bring
ing to Marion jcounty the members of
the National Farmers Congress after
their meeting in Jacksonville, which
he claimed was worth many thousands
of dollars to our county; also leading
the movement to majte the county fair

ferring referring especially to the analysis

work several hundred of the state
prisoners now being kept on the state
farm at Raiford on the public roads.
He stated that there are now over 500
of them at Raiford, while the law pro provides
vides provides that less than one-fourth of that
number is to be used there. He claims
that with the release of that much
free labor now being used on the

in Florida instead of 70 per cent as

D. Lancaster, one of the candidates
for clerk, was a slacker during the

Mr. Cam has had long experience
