The following from the Arcadia

ble recommendation as to the best way

that we reprint it in full and give it
our hearty endorsement:
There is one way, and only one way,
that the Knott-Catts contest may be
settled to the satisfaction of those
who wish justice to prevail." It has al
ready been demonstrated beyond the
shadow of a doubt that many errors
were made in the .tabulation "of the
second choice votes. Mr. Knott says
he is now satisfied that such errors
were made in every county. We be
lieve he is correct in his statement.
Under such circumstances the state
executive committee should request
the election officers of each precinct
in the state to reconvene and again
tabulate the second choice votes, us using
ing using every precaution to see "that no
errors, are made. Should there be a
state-wide movement to this end, in
the interest of party harmony, there
will, be few election officers who wil
refuse to do this without pay, prob
ably none. In the meantime, each
candidate should pledge himself to
abide by the results of this recount.
in conversation witn one oi our
strongest editors in the state, a Catts
supporter, this week, he said if such
a thing were attempted he would per
sonally request Mr. Catts to abide by
this recount, and if he refused he
would no longer support him. This
question should be settled by the
party rather than by the courts, if at
all possible. It will be better for the
party for it to be settled thus. We
voted for Mr. Knott and will yet sup
port him unless some condition arises
to indicate a spirit of unfairness and
dishonesty.upon his par, but we now
say what the prominent editor above
mentioned said of Mr. Catts, that if
Mr. Knott will not agree to abide by
a recount of the second choice votes
as ordered by the state executive
committee, then we will no longer
support him. We may not support
him any way, but such a refusal upon
his part will show such a spirit of un unfairness
fairness unfairness that we are unwilling to sup support
port support any man for this high office who
is not willing to have his party cor
rect known errors. The only thing
the people are asking is that there
be a correct, and honest tabulation of
all the votes cast. No orie doubts the
nomination of Mr. Catts by the votes
as certified to, but every well inform
ed person knows that many errors
have been; made in regard to second
choice votes, which votes are as much
entitled to be counted as the j first
choice. The correction of all these
errors may or may not lose the nom
ination for Mr. Catts. The people of
Florida are not nearly so much con
cerned as to which of these two gen
tlemen shall be governor as they are
as to which of the two has honestly
received the nomination. It will never
be determined as to which of the two
is honestly .nominated until there
shall have been a recount of all the
votes, and not merely a recount in a
few precincts. This statement seems
so plain that we can not conceive how
any one can question its correctness.
Gen. Alfred Ayer met Catts in de
bate' at Flemington last week and, ac
cording to reports we have from
those present, entirely vanquished
him. Any well informed man who is
agood speaker can put the kibosh on
Catts. Catts has several different
sets of speeches. When he goes into
a town, where he finds newspaper re
porters listening, he "roars as gently
as a sucking dove." But. when he
gets out in some back district where
he thinks the people know nothing he
rants. A good stenographer to stay
with him ; on his tour, and make re
ports of his speeches, could more com
pletely confute his arguments than
any other agency.

The warm, sweet breeze blew in
