The Star has heard a good deal of
talk recently about the formation of
Catts clubs among the negroes of this
county, but has paid little attention to
it. ; Its attention has been called re
cently to an instance which gives a
strong basis for the report.
Some of our well-known and rella
ble citizens, while out in the north
west part of the county, noticed a
couple of strange white men approach
a negro churchf where there was a
good sized crowd of colored men wait
ing, and begin holding a meeting.
Guards were posted, so the citizens
couldn't get near the church. They
recognized several of the negroes and
soon after the gathering meeting one
of them asked him what it was about.
The man replied without hesitation
that the two white strangers had been
trying to form a Catts club.
If this story is true, and there is
strong probability that it is, attempts
are being made to form Catts clubs
among the negroes all over the state,
with a view of Catts running inde
pendent if he is defeated in the pri primary,
mary, primary, which he is almost certain to
be. There is some talk about Swear Swearingen
ingen Swearingen being implicated in this move,'
but the Star thinks that hardly prob probable.
There is no chance of Catts getting
anywhere with the negro vote. Some
few of the negroes may turn bol bolshevik,
shevik, bolshevik, but the great majority of
them are republicans, as their fathers
and grandfathers were. They have
a candidate for senator in Judge
Cheney of Orlando a much better
man than Catts and at least nine out
of ten of them will vote for him.. They
may join Catts clubs and rat clubs
just for the fun of it but when they
go into the voting booth they will put
their pencil marks against republican
But any white man who will go

There is not, and there never has
been, in the United States, such a

It is plain that there is no such

may be controlled by promise of con concessions
cessions concessions and privileges, which can be
delivered by supposed leaders to those
seeking public office.
The average worker has a mind of
his own, and is the most difficult man
for the leader of a political faction
to control. He will listen with inter interest,

THE GOVERNOR AND
HIS POLITICAL METHODS
SW EARING EN AT
LABORING UNDER DELUSIONS
It does not require any deep 1 ana analysis
lysis analysis of election results to determine
the fact that the workers of the Unit Unit-'ed
'ed Unit-'ed States have no strings tied to
'them. When they enter the polling
r vttUct virov pavr puewt u? t
au tw PturrctmMu&e are
twC a? pea
We understand that Mr. W. J.
Folks, at the 'Shady meeting, declared
that he 'had been -attacked in the pub public
lic public prints, and that he was the cham champion
pion champion of the people. v
Mr. Folks is 'laboring under two
delusions. The first is that he has
been attacked in the public prints.
We believe the Banner has given him
a couple of mild dabs, and the Star
has criticised him a little, but if he
will take the trouble to count them
up both papers have given him far
more kind than unkind words.
Mr. Folks is like all other men
who after occupying the posts of
good but rather secluded citizens all
their lives, in communities where
their many virtues are known, and
few faults excused for the safe of the
said virtues, suddenly step out in the
big crowd, where they are unknown
and have Jto make good among, those
who neither know nor care how good
they been at home. He has not learn
ed yet that his becoming a politician
and a candidate, gives every other
citizen a right to criticise him, and
that his fellow citizens may look at
his a6tions from a different stand
point 'from that which he occupies,
and that they don't have to agree
with him if they don't want to.
If Mr. Folks is correctly quoted in
saying he is the champion of the peo people,
ple, people, he has made a mistake. First,
that is a boast that no man should
make. Self praise is half scandal,
and a'man who does well Should leave
others to do the praising. So far, we
have 'heard very little praise of Mr.
Folks except from himself. All who
know anything about legislative pro proceedings
ceedings proceedings for the last ten years declare
that Mr. Folks has done far less for
Marion county than any other man
who has been sent to Tallahassee from
here in all that time. He is a 'fine
old man, and everybody likes him,
but Tie doesn't deliver the: goods.
; 'Let's take ; this house joint resolu resolution
tion resolution 279, which is to be voted on in
the -general 'election next November.
Mr. Folks voted for this in the legis legislature,
lature, legislature, because, he says, his county
might not have voted a bond issue,
in which case the state road commis commission
sion commission could have built some roads in
ltfari6n county with money taken
'from" other bounties. Now, Marion
has bonded for good roads, and Mr.
Folks says" that in the general elec election
tion election ?he will 'vote against house joint
resolution 279. By what process cf
reasoning does Mr. Folks arrive at
the conclusion that his course in this
matter is consistent ? If Mr.'Folks goes
back to the 'legislature, and 'meets
there' any of the men 'who 'voted 'with
him 'On : house joint resolution 279,
wotft "'they :say he 'double-crossed
them ? And' won't they proceed to put
the' rollers tinder him when he tries
to obtain their help in-some measure
for Irs own county? They surely will.
The Star has always supported the
cause of good roads. But it's rather
hard to place Mr. Folks. We'have 'al 'always
ways 'always understood he was opposed to
bonding for that purpose. 'About
rive Jyears ago, when Lake was put putting
ting putting 'in : the 'system of roads that has
proven of so much good to her own
people and such a good advertisement
to her abroad, the citizens of Marion
held a mass meeting to decide wheth whether
er whether to call a bond election or not. The
sum was from 'half to three-quarters
of a million, and that 'amount "would
have built twice as much as the same
sum today. Mr. Folks -was prominent
against it. A year ago in the legis legislature
lature legislature he voted for a measure which
tho' as crooked as a blacksnake was
in his opinion intended to raise money
to build roads. A few weeks ago. we
suppose, (we haven't asked him) he
voted for the bond issue of $560,000
to issue bonds, which sum "was voted.
Now he tells us that in November he
will vote against the legislative meas-
( Jacksonville Metropolis, July, 1919)
After the last gubernatorial cam
paign, Governor Catts called at the
Metropolis office to personally thank
this paper for what he declared was
"its unfailing fairness toward him
during the campaign," (although he
knew the Metropolis did not support
him). In the course of conversation
the governor was asked why he had
made such bitter attacks on the Cath Catholics
olics Catholics in his speeches this being .'me
of the chief planks of his platform.
Catts then made this significent an answer:
swer: answer: "Governor Broward was shrewd
enough to have a battle cry that he
could shout loud and long all the time,
and 'which would stir the people up
so they would talk about it, and that
battle cry was 'the Everglades,' and
he worked it to a finish and won.
When I decided to enter the gover governor's
nor's governor's race, I had to have a battle cry
which would stir up the people, and
after careful thought I decided to
choose 'the Catholic question.' I
worked it to a finish and I won."
Now the governor is trying out this
same idea again, in his race for the
U. S. Senate, and this time his battle
cry seems to be "class hatred," for
he is preaching this to stir up labor
against capital. He probably believes
this is the psychological time, with
all this unrest in the country. The
governor thinks, by using this method,
he can get the laboring vote, but ht
forgets that in the ranks of labor are
intelligent ,and loyal conservative
Americans who think for themselves,
and the governor's apparent solicitude
fcr the laboring men is laughingly
transparent. Intelligent laboring men
are not being caught by that kind of

It is fortunate that some of the t

is that every voter could not hare

ingen Swearingen repaid the courtesy by plung

His language was that of a coarse
political demagogue, his manner was
that of an insulting hoodlum, and his
speech" was the cheap and stale
harangue of the backwoods politician,
railing against the "interests" and tlie
subsidized press' and appealing 'to
class prejudice. In 45 minutes he gave
not one reason why he should be elect

applause, and after Hardee had re
plied the audience arose and walked
out, refusing to hear Swearingen's
rejoinder. It was a most humiliat
ing reception for the Catts candi

faced defeat he snapped and snarled
at -everything about him.
When Hardee arose to reply he
was dignified, calm, smiling and cour
teous, and he was greeted with a
round of applause which continued
until he begged for quiet. In that
few minutes Swearingen read the
fate of Cattsism and his own hopes
in St. Petersburg. Hardee gave scant

trap shooting contest, and to inject
some "pep" into the struggle a tur
key supper with all the "fixins" was
provided for the shooters. In addi addition

the president as a prize to be given
to the highest gun. The cigars were

strongly that the targets, in many
instances, would be blown back to the
trap, and whipped about in every di

thirteen out of fifteen targets. Under
the conditions prevailing, and this
wind handicap, this score easily
places Mr. Davis in the expert class.
The club members were divided into
two teams, one headed by the presi

The shooting, as above stated, was
so difficult that the poorest scores yet
made were chalked down against

BOLSHEVIKS FETTER LIBERTY
Theories Leaders of the Movement
Lay Down and Put Into Practice,
Fly in the Face of Ail Hu Human
man Human Experience.
By FRANK COMERFORD.
All the world except the bolshevik
rulers of Russia Is old-fashioned be behind
hind behind the times. We still cling to the
old superstition that the people
should be the sovereigns, that public
officials are public servants, that the
safest plan of government Is that
form of government which Is nearest
to the people. In the United States
each citizen has one vote. He has a
vote for the men who make the local
laws, the city or village ordinances;
a vote for the man who enforces the
ordinances, the mayor; a vote for the
representatives in the state legislature,
where the laws are made ; for the
governor, who enforces the state laws ;
a vote for the congressmen and sen senators,
ators, senators, who enact the national laws and
formulate the national policies; a vote
for the president, who carries out the
supreme law of the land. While It Is
true that in the case of the president,
we vote for electors who elect the
president, there has not been a single
case wherein an elector has voted
other than he was instructed by the
people. We come together in political
parties, present platforms, and every
citizen has a chance to register his
opinion of men and measures. Hie
citizen has a right to vote at primary
elections and register his choice for
the party candidates and for the dele
gates to the conventions which forma
late the party platforms.
Bolshevik Argument Unsound.
The bolsheviks point out that politi political
cal political parties do not live up to their
platforms; that candidates for office
, default in their promises after tbey
are elected; that representative de
mocracy is frequently not representa representative
tive representative of and responsive to the People.
We know that there is some truth in
this criticism, but we know that it is
our fault. We have the power to ex
press our wants, to record our will.
We also have the power to punish our
betrayal. We can recall from office
recreant public servants; we can add
to our legislation and take over the
power to initiate laws, and compel the
reference of legislation back to the
people before it can become operative
as law. Our public officials are only
our agents ; we hire them, we pay
them ; we can fire them, disgrace them
and punish them If they fall to obey
our instructions. Such is our power.
If we do not use the power intelll
gently and effectively it is our fault
If we are Indifferent to the rights we
possess and fail to use them, the fault
is with us. Therefore, we do not con
demn a system of representative gov
ernment because some of the Individ
. uals who make up the government are
unfit and unworthy of the rights they
The bolsheviks appear to favor a
change In the method of governing
the people. The plan they have adopt
ed is based on the theory that the
people must not be trusted, but that
the officeholders can. Bolshevism is
government from the top down, rather
than from the bottom up. They seem
to go on the theory that power dele
gated through many hands will lose
its corruption just as running water
does. This political theory files in the
face of aU human experience.
In our numbers we have a figure
which for many years has enjoyed a
peculiar reputation; it is the "jester
of numbers. It is the number "23."
It Is known in American slang as
"skiddoo." The bolsheviks inserted in
the constitution a Joker, and oddly
enough they gave it the "sklddoo1
number, "23." It is found in Article 2
of the constitution:
"Being guided by the interest of the
working class as a whole, the Rus
sian Socialist Federal Soviet Repub Republic
lic Republic deprives all individuals and groups
of all rights which could be utilized
by them to the detriment of the so
Here is the big beware sign In the
constitution. What does it mean:
what fears must come into the minds
of men and women in Russia when
they read this paragraph? The con
stitution deprives every one, Individ
ually and collectively, of exercising
any rights he or they may have which
are opposed to bolshevlsm. Did tyr tyranny

Who is to determine what rights, if
exercised, might be detrimental to a
socialist revolution? The meaning It
as plain as the command Is stern. Fall
in line with bolshevlsm or perish, is
the order. If you disagree with our
olans and methods, "be seen but not

conservative, would rise in protest

our freedom of thought, speech and

were in Russia today Instead of in the
United States, and ventured a single

This constitutional provision is not a
muffler on free speech, it Is a gag.
What freedom can there be in a
country in which opinion is shackled?
