We can and do accept without
question the Star's statement of facts;
nevertheless, we contend that its at attitude
titude attitude and conclusions do not do
proper justice to Mr. Luning, who, we
still hold, is blameless in the matter
of the reform school scandals. To
show this, it is necessary to bee in
with political matters of the past.
first, the state administrative of officers,
ficers, officers, consisting of the secretary of
state, comptroller, attorney-general,
treasurer, commissioner of agricul agriculture
ture agriculture and superintendent of public in instruction,
struction, instruction, for years past have been
divided into several separate commit committees
tees committees whose duty it was to visit and
inspect the various state institutions.
One of these committees was charged
with the duty of visiting the boys'
reform school; the other, with that of
visiting the girls' school. Mr. Luning
was on the latter, not on the former,
as has been stated.
Now Luning is the only administra administrative
tive administrative officer who did not vote for Catts.
All the rest, including Tom West,
voted for Catts. We do not know this
to be an absolute fact, but we feel
sure that it is. At any rate, we know,
and the entire Tallahassee gang
knows that Luning voted for Knott.
Well, what has that to do with the
main question, you .may ask.
A good deal. On every committee
hree on which Luning served.

bring in any report reflect-

nestly believed what his associates
the board wrote into that report,
for he could not believe that men oc occupying
cupying occupying such high positions would be
guilty of a deliberate attempt to de
ceive the people about conditions at
the Marianna school.
Luning occupies a very delicate
position amongst the capitol officials,
and he has to use a certain amount of
diplomacy in order to get along with
them and accomplish any good for
the state. He cannot afford to anta

some, if not all of the prejudices that

Well, after all the fuss that was
raised, nothing has been done so fai
as the public knows, to alleviate con
ditions at the state reform school. A
wave of pity and indignation swept
the state when these conditions were
made known; but in a little while in
terest was absorbed by other things,
and those unfortunate youthful
charges of the state will, we fear, be
left to the dirt, disease and starvation
that seems to be the normal lot of

disheartening, discouraging. Lake
It will be the fault of the news

hot to hold any official who will not
do his duty.
The law passed at the extra session
of the legislature, to permit drug
stores to sell whisky on physicians'
prescriptions, will result in much
drunkenness and graft. We have not

There has come to my mind a legend,
a thing I had half forgot,
And whether I read it or dreamed it,
ah, well, it matters not.
It is said in heaven, at twilight, a
great bell softly swings,
And man may listen and hearken to
the wonderful music that rings,
If he puts from his heart's inner
chamber all the passion, pain
Heartache and weary longing that
throb in the pulses of life
If he thrust from his soul all hatred,
all thoughts of wicked things,
He can hear in the holy twilight how
the bell of the angels rings.
And I think there lies in this legend,
if we open our eyes to see,
Somewhat of an inner meaning, my
friend, to you and to me.
Let us look in our hearts and ques question,
tion, question, "Can pure thoughts enter
To a soul if it be already the dwell dwelling
ing dwelling of thoughts of sin?"
So, then, let us ponder a little; let us
look in our hearts and see
If the twilight bell of the angels could
ring for us you and me.
