The Tallahassee Weekly True Democrat was established on March 3, 1905, by John G. Collins. The "True Democrat", as it briefly called itself, explained that its name showed dedication to the "true and tried doctrines of The Old Time distinguished from...mischievous fads and fallacies of the day." Though not intended, never more true words have been spoken on newspaper title changes! Milton A. Smith bought the Weekly True Democrat in 1908. In February 1912, the paper started publishing as the Semi-weekly True Democrat . In 1913, it reverted to a weekly again under the title of the Weekly True Democrat . On April 6, 1915, the newspaper became the Daily Democrat . Frequency of publication dictated another change of title later that year when the Daily Democrat became the Weekly Democrat . Sometime thereafter, exact dates are not known, the Weekly Democrat became the paper of record for the state’s capital, and the title changed to the Weekly Democrat and Florida Record to reflect this development. If ever it was a record for Florida, it would have been a digest, since both the Florida House and Senate have maintained continuous and detailed recordings of their deliberations. Today, the same newspaper is known as the Tallahassee Democrat . Because Tallahassee is the seat of Florida’s state government, the True Democrat has been quoted copiously in journal articles and theses. Of particular note is its usefulness in tracking Jim Crow behaviors in the early 20th century. During this period, African Americans constituted about 80 percent of the population in Leon County, and white supremacists felt particularly threatened. The True Democrat, whatever its name, would come to influence--and some might argue, make mischief with--the State of Florida’s democratic processes and the deliberations of the legislature. While it may have shown leanings toward one party or another throughout its history, the newspaper has been affiliated with neither the Democratic nor Republican party but can be said to have exerted its influence on each.
Dates or Sequential Designation:
Vol. 1, no. 1 (Mar. 3, 1905)-v. 7, no. 52 (Feb. 16, 1912).

Causes General Agents to Appeal to Gov-
ernor Higgies for Relief.
The crisis in the affairs of the
Equltablr Life Assurance Society was
laid before Governor Higgings of New
'York at the executive chamber at
Albany Friday afternoon by the com-
nittee of 35 managing agents of the
society, which earlier in the day at
Syracuse had made the same appeal
for mutialization of the society to
Siiu)erintend'unt IHendricks of thp
sante insurance department.
Governor Higgins made very evi-
dent his appreciation of the great
seriousness of the situation In thi
Equitable Society. He said It was a
question whether the legislature could
alter the charter of the society with-
out the stockholders' consent. He as.
sured the agents he would do all pos-
sible to bring about better conditions
in the society.
The spokesman for the agents de-
clared from Its inception by "Its great
founder, Henry B. Hyde," the Equit-
ctelo had been Intended to be truly a
mutual concern, and that the agents
had gone up and down the world pro-
c.aiming and leading policy holders tu
believe "that the only part of the
assets of the society that could be
paid to e'ockholders was $7,000 pec
annum, or 7 per cent Interest upon
the $100,000 of stock.
"It is manifest to us and policy
holders that the time has come for a
change, and such a chbsange as will
rescue It from being regarded as the
patrimony of any Individual or in
strument in the hands of one man.
"The ,o~lcy holders are the real
owners 'f the assets of the company,

nearly f00,000 policy holders, with
cutstanding Insurancea of $1.500,000,000.,
with a trust fund of $413,000,000, its

Fortune of War Will Be Decided la
Conflict Between Fleets--Japs IWy
Refuse to Fitht in the Oper-

A London speelal says: The Brit'
lsh public is only beginning to realise
how much depends on Togo's skilful
conduct of the approaching naval con.
test Until Vice Admiral Rojestven-
sky arrived in the Straits of Malacca,
there was a disposition to ridicule the
efforts of the Russian squadron; but
now that there is seen to be growing
likelihood of Vice Admiral Nebogat-
off joining Rojestvensky before the
fateful struggle opens lukewarm In-
terest is deepening into anxiety.
According to the Toklo correspond-
ent of a news agency, a momentous
war conference, lasting five hours,
was held there on Wednesday, attend-
ed by the elder statesmen, the pre-
mier and ministers. It is not difficult
to conjecture the nature of the coun-
cil's deliberations.
Tokio correspondents state that Ja-
pan has addressed a protest to France
on the Russian Pacific squadron's pres-
ence in Kamranh bay, but that France
has not yet replied. The Daily Tele-
graph's correspondent at Toklo de-
clares that a Japanese fleet is ready
to sail for Kamranh bay.
The Morning Post, commenting ou
the situation, contends that it is a
matter of urgent importance, especial-
ly considering Great Britain's world
wide naval interests to endeavor to se-
cure a more definite international
agreement on the question of neutral-
ity of the use of neutral waters Dy
May Not Fight Openly.
The keenest interest is manifested
In the dispatches being receolvd in St.
Petersburg, referring to the ]uissian
squadron commanded by Adrn!ril ltoj.
estvensky, but the admiralty claims
to be as much in the dark as the pub-
lic regarding the plans of the admi-
ral. The report that part of the
squadron was sighted off Hong Kong
sl not credited, however, as Hong
Kong is far away from his route.
The main question agitatting the na-
val officials is whether Rojestvensky
will elect to proceed northward
through the straits of Formosa or
bear off Into the Pacific through Bashi
channel south of the Island of For-
mosa, or Ballngtang channel north
of the Island of Luzon.
The conviction is growing stronger
that the Japanese heavy division Is
concentrating close to the shores of
Japan and It is also believed that
Admiral Togo will decline to give
battle In the open sea.
This Is what the admiralty officials
hope for, as it sincerely believes that
Rojestvensky would have more thau
an even chance if the two squadrons
lined up In an open fight. They believe
that Togo's tactics will be night tor-
pedo attacks In an attempt to scatter
the Russian ships, putting some of
them out of action and then picking
off the damaged vessels in the morn-
Although not reported directly, It il
believed in Toklo that the Russian
second Pacific squadron continues the
occupation of Kamranh bay, or some
other port of Annam, where it is ex
pected to remain until joined by the
third Russian Pacific squadron.
Waiting for the Third Squadron.
The report that Admiral Rojestven-
sky is maintaining a patrol and ex*
aminlng neutral shipping off Kamranh
bay Increases the Irritation toward
France for permitting the use of that
port as a base of operations.
