SOME MORE OF CATTS
The following from the St. Peters
burg Independent will give one of the
reasons why Governor Catts has no
more influence with the war depart
ment. It is difficult to understand
why a supposedly sane man will
make such wild statements. The In
Governor Sidney J. Catts is re
ported by the Tampa Times as hav
ing said that he was misquoted by the
St. Petersburg newspaper men who
reported his speech at the yacht club
here, and that he only spoke of the
innoculation of soldiers with typhoid
germs by surgeons at Camp Wheeler
and the execution of two of the doc doctors
tors doctors as "rumors he had heard when
at the camp."
Governor Catts was not misquoted,
excepting that the statements were
not presented in the fullness of his
rabid expression when he gets to
orating. Nearly 200 men heard the
governor's statements and scores of
affidavits might readily be secured
to prove the correctness of th news
paper reports. Not only that, but
the governor, in private' conservation
next day with gentlemen who ex
pressed surprise at his declaration of
the night before, reiterated and am
plified what he asserted to be the
Governor Catts' language at the
yacht club was: "When I went to
Camp Wheeler and found that 500
of our boys had been innoculated with
typhoid germs by two surgeons there
of German descent, my blood boiled.
And when I went to Washington and
protested, the officials there would not
believe iti but they were convinced,
and those two surgeons will never in in-noculate
noculate in-noculate anybody else for they are
safe under the ground. I helped to
do it, and am proud of it."
The following day the governor re reiterated
iterated reiterated the statement and stated pos positively
itively positively that the two surgeons were
shot, after military trial. He spoken
of the matter as an immediate per personal
sonal personal experience and knowledge,
boasted that he had been instrumen instrumental
tal instrumental in developing the facts and bring bringing
ing bringing about the execution and told how
he had urged Secretary of War Ba Baker
ker Baker to adopt drastic measures and
place "all traitors, plotters and graft grafters
ers grafters upon the soldiers" before firing
Just why Governor Catts tries to
escape newspaper reports of a speech
he made in public is not clear, unless
it be that his reckless tongue led him
into an embarrassing position, as it
has done many times before. That
there was much surprise at the gov governor's
ernor's governor's statements, there is no deny denying,
ing, denying, because he even prefaced them
with the remark that, "these things
are kept pretty quiet, but I am going
to tell you some straight facts." If
the governor insists that he was
wrongfully misquoted by the news newspaper
paper newspaper men of St. Petersburg it will
be quite easy to prove that he was
not. The Independent does not pro propose
pose propose to see the reporters made the
"goat" by Governor Catts or anyone
else, so long as it can help it. The
governor should remember the advice
given by the monkey to the poll poll-parrott.

BIG COMPANY DOING TWO-BITS ;
The communication elsewhere from
the American Tobacco Company shows
that that big corporation is not only
doing its bit by. the soldiers it is
doing two, and then some. You give
the Star two bits (25 cents) to send
smokes to the boys in France, so you
do your bit, or rather two bits. And
the company for those two bits sends
some soldier more smokes than he
could buy for four bits at home (and
can't buy at all in France) so it does
its two bits, and then some.
So come along and help send smokes
to the boys. Show that you can be as
