Governor Broward has accepted the
resignation of Mr. C. H. Dickinson, pri-
vate secretary, and appointed Mr. M.
A. Brown, late of Duval county, as his
successor. In accepting Mr. Dickin-
son's resignation the Governor says:
My Dear Sir--I have the honor to
acknowledge the receipt of your letter
of this date tendering your resignation
as my Pqvate Secretary which I have
accepted with some reluctance.
I beg to say that you have served the
office faithfully and satisfactorily, and,
no doubt, I will feel your loss, but I
know you will prove a useful man in
the Comptroller's office.
It gives me pleasure to further say
that your efficiency and courtesy has
made you a man most adapted to the
position of Private Secretary, and I feel
tnat your place will be hard to fill.
Had it not been that I promised the
Comptroller to release you I am tempt-
ed to say that I would refuse.
I wish for you every success in your
new field as you are well worthy of any
honor or trust. Hoping that you will
command me whenever I can serve you,
and wishing you abundant success I
have the honor to be,
Yours very truly,

the constitution, and does no authorize
or pass upon the constitutionality of
statutes that affect the Governor's ex-

the reasons stated we must respectfully
decline to give any opinion upon the

At a meeting of the signers of the

presented by the ladies of Leon county
and others .o the Board of Pardons, the
following preamble and resolution were
adopted unanimously:
Wheras, The editor and proprietor of
The True Democrat has been kind and
public spirited enough to devote much
space in that excellent publication to
give the people of Leon county and the
State of Florida trustworthy informa-
tion concerning the appeal for mercy
made by the ladies of Tallahatsee and
vicinity to the Board of Pardons in the
case of Walter L. Taylor, which ap-
peal was made on behalf of his agon-
ized wife and helpless children, and be-
cause the signers of the appeal, nearly
three-hundred in number, believed tiat
the punishment to which he had been
sentenced by the court was unduly se-
vere; and
Whereas, We, the petitioners for
mercy, felt greatly incensed at the in-
trusion of B. S. Liddon on the meeting
of the Pardoning Board, called at the
request of the petitioners, and we are
grateful to The True Democrat for its
strong and timely defense of our posi-
tion and feelings in the matter: There-
fore, be it
Resolved, That our sincere thanks
are due and are hereby tendered to
The True Democrat for its manly and
chivalrous behavior- and that we pledge
ourselves, individually, to do all in our
power to induce the good people of Tal-
lahassee, Leon county, and others, to
give to that excellent and fearless
newspaper the moral and substantial
support which it so richly deserves.
The Proprietor of The True Demo-
crat returns his grateful thanks for the
foregoing generous and graceful com-
pliment, and hopes his newspaper will
always deserve and enjoy the confi-
dence and favor of the ladies of Talla-
hassee and Leon county.

Byde's Private Secretary.

A Washington special says: It is
unfair to say, as some papers are do-
Ing, that any officials of the depart.
meant of agriculture have accused for-
mer Statistician John Hyde of com-
plicity with the recently unearthed
departmental frauds. At the same
time, however, the prevailing impres-
sion in the department is one of sur-
prise and regret the Mr. Hyde should
have gone away practically between
two suns without letting Secretary
Wilson or Assistant Secretary Hays
know of his plans. He was expected
to remain in the city until the grand
jury could have an opportunity to
bear him and his going has in a de-

him. It is not yet time to say the
departmenI thinks him a party to the
Irauds, but the officials do think that
he should have been brave enough to
remain at home and stand the racket
whatever it might have been. His
failure to do this was a great disap-
pointment to his Washington friends,
of0fi(ial and otherwise. No accusations
have been brought against him be-
yond the fact that his methods were
suffelently loose as to make the work
of the real culprits easier than it
should have been.
The suspicion exits in some quar-
ters that he probably would not have
gone had he leen satisfied that he could
run the gauntlet of the grand jury in-
qul:iy without harm. His departimen-
tal friends say that his natural timid-
ity, w.ich is rank; cowardice at times.
has controlled him in this case, and
that h's going away Is not an evidence
of guilt.
Meanwhile, inquiry now under waiy
by Professor Hays, and the grand
jury will probe a little deeper Into
Hyde's personal case than otherwise
they wou:d have done.

Peters Disagres With Jordan That

A Washlngton special says: The
fact heretofore alluded to in these
di;atches that cotton producers of
the south are by no means a unit In
demanding thi resignations of Secre-
tary of Agriculture Wilson and the
abolition of the bureau of statistics
because of the recently discovered
scandal, has been shown in a most
conclusive manner. Monday's papers
printed a dispith from Atlanta, In
which President ,Jordan of the Souih-

"The tremendous Influence of the

work has meant millions to the south.
I must take, issue with Mr. Jordan. It

reason to believe th,3t the Intelligent
citizens of the south will confueu the

confidence. and to charge him with
Incompetency or to assert that his

unwarranted charge. "

The only Nursery in existence allowing you to see trees

convince you that you will get exactly what you buy and

They fully guarantee their trees and are absolutely re-

FIRST. ItP cause 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 thq 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 corn-

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 Mutual LIFE 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.
