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.

Di9ault Tas eof the Two Bea
Happily Complted.

The True Democrat went to press last
week while the educational boards in
joint session were still at work, and
we were able only to announce the elee-
tion of Gainesville for the site of the
University by a vote of 6 to 4, and the
unanimous choice of Tallahasee as the
site of the Female College.
In its subsequent seasons the joint
board decided to continue the work of
the University at Lake Citytempr-
arly, for a yer, in order to alow time
for t meen ns ry building
at Gainesville.
Dr. Andrew ledd was chosen as Pre-
dent of the University and Prof. A. A.
Murpree as President of the Female Col-
lege each at a salary of ,6500 a year.
Ea was authorized to name a faculty
for the respective institutlons, subject
to the approval of the boards.
The location of the Deaf Dumb and
*Bld institute was not de iitely made,
but was offend to Lake be
located at that place if desire by the
people thereof, otherwise to reman at
St. Augustine; and a committee com-
posed of Superintendent Holloway
and Mmsrs Bryan and Adams, of the
Board of Control, was appointed to
ascertain the wishes of Lake City.
In reply to the offer of the joint board
to Lake City of the Blind, Deaf and
Dumb Institute, the mayor of that city.
the chairman or the board of county
commissioners and the chairman of the
citizen's committee united in a com-
munication addressed to the committee
appointed to present the matter on be-
half of the ioint board, "respectfully
but firmly" declining the honor. That
,-inststution will therefore remain at St.
Superintendent Holloway was chosen
as the secretary of the joint boards.
One of the wisest and most satisfac-
tory acts of the joint board was the de-
termination to establish a complete
Normal department for each of the two
colleges, thus solving what had been
regarded as the rather difficult problem
of Normal co-education as it had prevail-
ed heretofore at the DeFunlak Spritag

Considering the unusual and exceed-

the arbitrary provisions of the Back-
man College Law, and the positive re-
quirement of haste in the performance
thereof, In order that no interru on
or delay might occur In the admirntra-
tion of the new system, the two boards
have proceeded with -dmirable her-
mny. extraordinary rapidity and,
wi under circumstances of great
deecyad dBlculty, to a eonVMmmt

infinite credit upon the facufie and

Dr. Ilecler's Appiataieait.
From th e PF ndmol t Journal:
Albert Williamson, of the Jackson.
ville Floridian, is a good fellow and he
always ms means well, but he unfortunate-
ly seems to be the possessor of one of
those hair-trigger dlspositions which
have been the undoing of many another
good mansan and which, unless a curb of
some kind is put upon it, we greatly
fear will cause Albert himself many a
moment of remorse.
The Floridian's latest outbreak con-
sists of an attack on Governor Broward
for appointing Dr. Louis deM. Blocker,
of this city, on the committee to in-
vestigate the condition of affairs at the
State Insane asylum. The Floridian
bases its objection on the ground that
Dr. Blocker, as a former employee of
the asylum, could not now afford to
permit a report which would reflect on
its past numagermmt.
Therein is where the Floridian does
both Governor Broward and Dr. Block-
er a grave injustice.
So far as the governor is concerned
he id-right in appoitig on the com-
mittee a man whose past experience as
an attache of the asylum will enable
him to get at the bottom of the case
without any needless delay and without
that slow uncertainty which must ob-
viously characterize the work of a man
less familiar with the situation itself.
So far as Dr. Blocker is concerned.
the Floridian simply exhibits its igno-
rance of the man by presuming (1)
that he could have been a party to any
irregularities which may have existed
at the asylum under past managements
or (2) that he could be induced to sup-
press any part of the truth in an inves-
tigation of this kind, no matter whom
the truth might hurt orhelp. Dr. Block-
er is not the kind of a man which the
Floridian so hastily assumes him to be.
Rather than having made a mistake
in the appointment of Dr. Blocker, The
Journal does not hesitate to say that,
in its opinion, Governor Broward has
made few appointments as good, and
certainly none better, than the appoint-
ment of the gentleman referred to on
the asylum investigating committee.
in that appointment alone the public
has the best possible assurance that we
shall have the truth about the past and
present conduct of this most important
tate institution.
Oyster Beast.
One of the most enjoyable features of
the summer season at Panacea Springs
was an oyster roast at the hotel last
Saturday evening. The regular even-
ing meal was dispensed with and Instead
long tables were spread upon the
grounds north of the hotel and loaded
with roasted oysters and ether edibles.
The whole was preasided over by Mrs.
J. L. Morgan, who has a way of seeing
that each and every guest is waited on
bountifully. Everyone enjoyed the
oyster roast so much that it has been
decided to repeat It next Saturday, the
16th, and it may be decided to give
them every wee.
This hotel is now enjoying a very
liberal patronage-both mn the main
building-ad annex being comfortably
filled. There are yet some cottages be-
longing to the hotel, however, which
can be brought Into service, giving
room for anybody that comes.

Pensacola, July 7, 1905.
To the Editor of The True Dmocrat:
We heard some news from your city
recently that was refreshing to all true
Democrats. Rumor says a certain mat-
ter was up before a certain board at
the State Capitol, of which the Attor-
ney-General is a member, and after
listening for a while to the statements,
he declined to remain and take any
further part, as he thought the party
was not being accorded "a square deal.'
We have noticed your favorable com-
ment on his, Attorney-General llis' de-
mand, when the removal of the insane
asylum officials about to be made, that
it was the duty of the board to go into
full investigation of the asylum, before
anything else was done, and if there
was any wrong doing to find out to
whom the blame belonged. Had such
a manly course been followed, the guilty
would have been found, to be punished
later by the courts, and the people of
the State would have been sored the
posure made by the legislative com-
mittee ofthe atroities committed at

the asylum, which asto had the ctvl-

iet world, ahis d which it claimed,

A dispatch from Oyster Bay is as

It was that the president broached
the subject of Mr. Root's return to

the New Yiork Hun. lie r ihl that their
bours of sleep allowed the younger
boys In thi' great schools were far
too short. Eight hours was the mini-
mum for adult l, atnd from nine and a
half to ten hcmils shmoals be allowed

r'turneld- I expect she had been wall
Ing aasti-lde all the' time --and with
strIct Injijnctolltn "not to forget the
party next VWednesdlay." my little
visitor kissed me unool-by. and I tried
to settle ilown to work again.
Blist a pair of blue eyes would keep
dancing In front of me on my blolt-
tinl pad. Sometimes I thought they
S twere Kathleevn' and sometimes I

Kathlem'o eae i m her Aunt Me-
va's were struagely alike. I had
noticed It before.
The room seemed quite cheerless
now that she had gone.
In the Intervealag days the pot-
man left strange notes for me.
Sometimes the missives were stuck
together with jujubes, but I had no
diMculty In deciphering the signs.
They read: "Don't forget the party
next We'n'sday." As to the crosses
--well, the most Ignorant person
knows what those mean in a letter.
"We'n'sday" came at last, and of
course I went to the party. It was
a great success. The house was
turned upside down by a merry crowd
of little folks who kept the fun going
until long after they ought to have
been In bed.
Kathleen quteened It all very pret-
tily, and after the last little guest bad
de-parted and the blue eyes could
i irarrcly keep open, she p-rsisted that
jht- wasn't a little hit ir-od, "on'y
hungry." That was a iahterfuige she
wam alwayH guilty of at bhe(time.
Next day I saw Kalhlcern In the
park and we discussed the party.
"You were a funny man.' she said.
I was glad to know that I had glv-
rin oatlJhftetion In this direction.
"'' d you Ilarn all those s torlem

Secretary of Agicsltvrce lis De-
fianc: to Broker Price*


Pre Dea jeJ Withdrawal of Chartcs
ad I t RFtr..i6c g of
olaues Uder Die-ws,

That Secretary Wilson intends to
take no step backward In his report
oa the cotton leak investigation was
evidenced Monday by the statement
that he was not afraid of any libel
sult which might be filed against him
by Theodore Price or other brokers
mentioned in the report; in fact, he
said, he would welcome such action,
because it might be the means of de-
veloping such facts not already un-
covered, and which it was desirable
tV) know.
"This is a quarel among gamblers,,
he said. "brought about by the dis-
satisfaction of some of them In not
getting what they thought was their
due. I have nothing to take back.
As the head of an executive depart-
ment of the government, it was my
duty and right to give to the public
the result of the Investigation by the
secret service agents into the charges
which had been filed leading up to the
dismissal of Mr. lloimes.
The secretary added that he had
given consideration to Mr. Price's re-
quest, as presented through his at-
torney, William M. Ivins, of New York,
"to withdraw the unjust, offensive
and unsustalned charges and implica-
tions" and had reached the determiaa-
tion to take no further action in
the matter. He :aid he would not
communicate with Mr. Price or his
attorney in any way.
In view of the opinion by the
United States district attorney, a crim-
inal prosecution against Holmes woulah
not lie. Secretary Wllson intimated
that he would isugget to President

Roosevelt to Take Action.
It is regarded, according to a (1:s-
patch from Oyster Bay, as not unlike-
ly that criminal piosecutlon may ie-
suit from the Inrestigatton of the cot-
ton report leak in the department ot
agrIculture. The subject has not yet
been presented to the president in a
formal way, although he is familiar
with most of the derails of the in-
quiry. United States District Attor
ney Beach of W'ashington was of tit,
opinion, after a cursory examination
of a part of the evidence adduced in
* the investigation, tha, a criminal pro
ceding wculd not lie against Assist-
ant Statistician Holmes. who Is alleged
to have profited by giving advance in-
formation of the condition of the cot-
ton crop to certain brokers. The ao-
partment of justice is not inclined to
accept this view of the case. While
no decision to institute criminal pro-
ccedings has been teache,. the subl-
Ject Is being considered by Attorney
General] Moody, who later will take
up the matter with the president.

day aight, where he Will be held pend-
ing a decision of the various legal
legal points arising out of his trans-
fer from ptate to federal Jurisdiction.
When Powers arrived at the New-
port Jail at 7:50 o'clock p. m., a co,.
troversy arose between Jailor Ploeger.
and Mayor Hembold as to what cell
the prisoner should occupy. The
mayor Insisted that the ceil espec-
ially prepared for Powers was no-,
the proper place. Ploeger and Mayor
Hembold finally came to blows, ana
the latter was knocked down. During

p&.red for Powers was confiscated by
unknown persons. Surasequently Pow-
Sers was placed In another cell witi4
other prisoners, where he will remain

I quarters for him.
For five years Powers has bpn In
prison, he has been tried four times
and sentenced to death three times.
but as he walked into the Jail he ex-
pressed hope of his ultimate acquittal
of the charge entered against him.
He was the only one of those charged
alth conspiracy to murder William
Goebel to be convicted and sentenced
to death. His fight for life has been
remarkable, and attorneys express the
belief that three more years may pass
before the ena of the present legal
complications will make possible the
trial in the federal courts for which
he had applied five weeks ago at Lon-

On instructions from United States

terfering with United States officers.

The Mean Godfather.
Congressman Morrell, of Philadel-
phia, In a discussion of the Delaware
river appropriations, mentioned a
mean man.
"There are many mean men," he
said, "but this man surely was the
meanest of them all. Besides being
mean he was also rich.
"To a poor young couple living near
him a eon was born and they decided
to tame their son after the mean man.
and to ask him to stand as its god-
"He consented. He was flattered.
"Thereupon the Joy of this poor
young couple was great. They won-
dered what gift the rich godfather
would give to his little godson. Per-
haps a house and lot? Perhaps a half
dozen government bonds? Perhaps a
herd of cattle?"
Senator Morrell paused and smiled.
"What do you suppose," he said,
"the mean man sent the youngster?
He sent it, sir, a cup that one of his
Cochin China hens had won at a poul.
try show."

"Yes," said John's mother, "he use!l

ments and civil and naval officials
of the United States, the body of
A-1miral John Paul Jones was for
mally delivered to the United States
government in Paris Thursday. The
ceremony was one combining impres-
%ive dignity with brilliant military
and naval pomp in which the soldiers
and sailors of Prance and the sailors
of America united in rendering hon.
ors to the illustrious founder of the
American navy.
The occasion was unique and prob-
ably without parallel, as the funeral
was that of a revolutionary hero who
had lain neglected In a foreign grave
for over a hundred years.
The ceremony of delivering the
boly was held In the American
church on the Avenue de l'Alma, at
3:30 o'clock In the afternoon. The
interior of this gothic edifice was
beautifully decorated with plants and
flowers. At the foot of the chancel
rested the casket, wrapped In an
American flag and literally buried In
masses of floral emblems.
At the right of the altar sat Am-
bassador McCormlck. Senior Special
Ambassador Porter, Junior Special
Ambassador Loomls, United States
Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Rear Al-
miral Sigsbee and other officers of
the American squadron. Across the
aisle sat Premier Rouvier, with oth-
err members of his cabinet, practi-
cally the entire diplomatic corps and
officers of the army and navy. Scores
of American sailors, on either side
o? the altar, gave a fitting background
to) the imposing scene.
After brief religious services, Gen-
eral Porter, according to the French
custom, with the red sash of the
Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor
across his breast, advanced alongapde

Mayor Henderson, as chairman of the
citizens' committee, called another
meeting of citizens to assemble Monday
evening at the City Hall, and seventeen
citizens responded. The subscription
committee reported $2565 pledged, and
an informal dalcussion of possible sites
and "ways and means" ensued.
Finally it was decided that the same
committee, with that appointed by. the
9 council should meet the members of the
Commission on their arrival in the city
the next day, sni escort them to view
the different sites which have been sug-
gested and ascertain which of them
would be acceptable to the Commission;
and the meeting adjourned.
Messrs. Stockton and Mathes of the
Governor's Mansion Commission arrived

in the city Tuesday and were attended
by the joint committee on a tour of in-
spection of various tentatve sites for
tne mansion. They held no formal
meeting but took the matter under ad-
viseent, appointing another meeting
two weeks hence, when the matter of
selecting a site will be settled.
In the meantime the canvasing com-
mnttee of citizens will continweits work,
with the expctation of radsh addi-
tional funds for the ofwhat-
l ever site may be chosen. As an indica-
tio that none of those restedd for
the inspection was entirely satisfator,

Many of the older residents of Talla-
hassee will remember K. B1. Lignoski,
who was born and spent the earlier
years of his youth in Tallahassee, re-
moving with his parents to Houston,
Texas, when about la years of age.
Newspaper readers will alho recall an
event which occurred in 1396, in which a
Texas Confederate veteran named Mac
Stewart was condemned to death, in
Mexico, for the killing ot a policeman
at Paral, Mexico, in May of t iat year.
Stewart s sentence was afterwards
commuted to lite imprisonmeitL at Chi-
huahua. The connection between tne
two persons named is detailed in Texas
newspapers just received by The 'I rue
Democrat from Mr. Chas r. Cogswell
of this city, now sojourning at Bain-
bridge, and who is a cousin of Lagnoski.
From the beginning of Stewart's
trouble Dr. Lignoski has been devoted
to the self-imposed task of procuring
his release and as stated in the San
Antonio and El Paso journals, his ef-
forts were at last crowned with success,
and Stewart hus recently arrived in his
home State an.d has been received by
all of his former friends and comrades
as one risen from the dead, Dr. Lig-
noski snaring the hours in a succes-
sion of receptions given to him by Con-
federate camps and veterans through-
out the State.

Binghampton, New York.

FIRST. Because of the past record, and present standing of this com-
pany. For eighteen years its growth has been steady. Each year since the
first has chronicled a gain in assets, and Insurance in force, over the preced-
ing. Quietly, without blare of trumpet, or roll of drum, it has passed upward
in the path of prosperity, and showed on the first of January passed, over
$3,000,000 of Assets, and over $47,000,000 of Insurance in force.
SECOND. It is strongest at Home, where best known. In Binghamp-
ton, where it was founded, and has always lived, it has nearly $2,500,000 in
force. This in a city of 50,000 population is remarkable, and in the State of
New York. where the older companies are well entrenched, it had on the first
day of January, $13,296,975 Insurance in force.
THIRD. Its Policies are among the best in the world and have two
special features that are the very best that can be found. The Security
Mutual, alone among all the companies, limits its expense of management by
special contracts with its Policy Holders. In its policies it expressly stipulates
the maximum part of the premium that it can use for expenses.
the reserve under the laws of New York State. This registration law is so
strict that Reserve on.Registered Policies pass out of the control of the com-

pany, into the possession of the State Treasurer, and so long as the policy
registered is in force, whether by premium paying, paid up, or as an extended
insurance, the reserve stays in the States possession; thus you clearly see the
State is, in a special sense, a partner in Carrying this insurance.
FOURTH. SECURITY is a mutual company, it cannot be bought and
sold in the market. It is made up of policy holders and operated by policy
holders, for policy holders. No MutualLIFE INSURANCE COMPANY on
on the Legal Reserve basis has ever failed in the United States, and they
stand, as light houses, pointing the way to safe harbor and sure anchorage.

Fill out the Coupon below, and mail to me, and let me give you illustrations of the
the best contracts on the market.
