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.

The Marion County Democratic exe-
cutive committee doea not intend that
the public shall be mian ,rmned con-
rning it oton in the matter of the
recent appointment of a county JuAge
for that county, and has adopted the
following resolutions on the subject:
Be it resolved at this, a regular call-
ed meeting of the Marion County Dem-
ocratic Executive Committee called
for the express prpo of taking ac-
tion in regard to the recent appoint-
ment of county judge by Goveraor
1. That it is with regret that we
find it necessary as representatives of
the Democratic masses of Marion coun-
ty, to censure the Governor of Florid..
whom we only a short time ago elected
as a democrat to hold the high and
honorable position that he now occu-
pie, for exercising undemocratic pre-
SAs executive committeemen from
the great county of Marion, we feel
that we should be recreant to the trust
reposed in us by our democratic con-
stitueats were we to fail to take no-
tice of and resent the unjustifiable and
undemocratic action of Governor
Broward in forcing a county judge
upon us against our will and very
much against us as a party organisa-
& As one of the largest counties of
the 8tate, with an element that might
be used against the democratic party
in the future we feel that our organi-
sed democracy should be upheld and
strengthened, rather than weakened
and made the laughing stock of by
independents and Republicans asa
now the case, caused by Governor
Broward's unwarranted action in his
resent appointment In our county.
4. That we believe that Marion
county Democrats know whom they
would have to serve them as county
officials better than any man outside
of the county, though this man may
be the governor of our state.
5. That we know that the Constitu-
tion permits the governor to fill certain
official vaaneesbyappolatments, yet
when he does M, as hie or ease, under
consideraUos refuig tolt the d"me.
ersey be beard from, throtlin the

cratic precedenta and trample upon
the foundation of all true democratic
principle-the voice of the people.
And though we cannot change his re
cent appointment, we can and do re-
rent theinult and sting given to every
loyal Democrat in our county and State
-the stab in the back by one who we
should have least expected this stroke
in favor of "Independentism."
6. That these resolutions be given
publicity through our county papers.

The situation at New Orleans appears
to be gradually but surely improving,
notwithstanding the fact that on the
87th the number of deaths (18) was the
largest since the beginning of the epi-
demic. The number of new cases was
down to 81 on the same day, both of
these conditions being attributed to the
recent cool spell. The very next day
the number of deaths was 5 and new
cases 45 The total number of cases to
the 29th inst. was 1832: deaths 267, or
141 per cent mortality. In the epi-
demic of 1878 the mortality was nearly
double this figure.
On Wednesday quite a sensation was
caused by the discovery, in Pensacola.
of three Greeks who had been sick with
some kind of fever but were then con-
valescent. Careful diagntikjunmed
by State Iealt4dfflcerPo
in that city designated
from which they had suffered as
fever, and they were at once removed
and the strictest and most thorough
precautionary steps were taken. No
person living within a given district of
the foci was allowed to leave the city
for other points; and the personal at-
tention given to the matter by Dr.
Porter and his Ical representative. Dr.
Warren E. Anderson, assures the pub-
lic of the greatest degree of safety for
all the people of the State. The cele-
brated expert, Dr. Guiterasa is also at
Pensacola, having just finished an in-
spection visit to New Orleans and with
such professionals as these in charge
little fear need be felt of the fever
spreading. .
Mayor Henderson on Wednesday re-
ceived a telegram from State Health
Officer Porter, at Penacola, stating
that: "Tickets are prohibited to be put
on ale from here to any points in the
State. Commencing Friday, trains out
of here east will be delayed at Ea-
cambia bridge by other trains starting
from here. Medllcal inspector leaves

here on only daily train going t and
goes to inspect any one leaving here,
running them back."
The Talahamsee Woman's b has

While Florida is blessed with an
abundance of good, substantial timber

Church Croom knows within a short

just what his duties are, the law gov-

ble and necessary qualities with rare
good sense he makes at present a model
comptroller, and if calle to the exalted
office of Florida's chief executive for
faithful performance of duty in other
public places he will make a governor
in keein with the progr an digni-

The Crescent s exceadinly proud of
the fact that Comptroller Croom has at
last found one chaApion. If there is an
official in Florida that has made himself
unpopular It is Mr. Croom. Thi coun*

don't like him, the newspaper fratern-
ity of the State have no use for him,
unless it is Borland and Hilen, and in-
stead of being elected Governor, the
people of loda are going to retire
him to private life. He would have
been defeated last year if there had
been a *dW4ate against him, and there
will be next time.
