What the State Papes Say About
That Cangraesba Circus.
Why not lock Williams and Lamar
in a small room and let 'em have it out
in private? Surely the public would be
better off.- St. Lucie Tribune.
Whatever may be thought of Mr.
Lamar's taste and discretion in airing a
partisan and personal difference on the
oor of the house, he has given the
editors a chance to say what they think
of Mr. Williams as a party leader, of
which a good many are taking solemn
advantage. -Tamps Times.
The four great men of America to day
are Theodore Roosevelt W. J. Bryan,
William T'. Harris and Tom. Lawson-
Florida School Exponent. And no men-
tion is made of John Temple Graves,
William Randolph Hearst John Sharpe
Williams or William Barley Lamar.-
The Congressman from the first dis-
trict, Hon. W. B. Lamar, is trying to
make notoriety for himself in Wash-
ington, by airing his feelings against
minority leader Williams. This is about
the last showing Congressman Lamar
will get.--Arcadia News.
Some of the newspapers refer to him
as "Bill Lamar." It perhaps makes
no difference to the Florida Congress-
man if he is called Billie by th el-
der men, "William" by the elder ladies,
"Willie," by the girls, or "Bill" by the
boys, as long as he can keep his politi-
caFfences in repair.-Apalachilola Times
Among the egotistical freaks of mod-
ern times may be justly classed Billy
Lamar, Congressman from the Third
District of Florida. He had the temer-
ity to "buck up" against John Sharp
Williams, leader of the Democrats in
Congress, last week, and Billy was sat
down on so hard that his half million
dollar wife could hardly recognize him.
-Citrus County Chronicle.
Most Floridians will no doubt prefer
the method adopted by Hon. Frank
Clark for coming into prominence in
Congress, namely the introduction of
the Arizona Statehood bill, rather than
the questionable one of Hon. W. B.
Lamar, the stirring up of "family
troubles" in the De mocratic ranks.-
St. Augustine Record.
The Savannah News makes the point
that as a matter of fact Congressman
Lamar, of this State, was not slighted
by John Sharp Williams, but was actu-
ally promoted. He was left off the
Committee on Commerce but was made
a member of the Committee on Foreign
Affairs, which is more important than
the other committee.- Live Oak Demo-
The Tallahassee True Democrat, pub-
lished in Mr. Lamar's district sizes Mr.
Lamar about as correctly as does Mr.
Williams when it stated: "Congress-
man W. B. Lamar, of this Congressional
District, having been left off of the
Interstate and Foreign Commerce Com-
mittee, had quite a tilt with minority
Leader Williams at the session of Con-
gress on the 10th, and during the confu-
sion which followed the tilt, Mr. Lamar
shouted : Mr. speaker he went to the
newspapers with it.' Now, who goes
into the newspapers more than does our
W. B. Lamar, when he wishes Florid-
ians to know what great things he has
done, or is going to do ? Oh! that vain
little darling of ours. "-Palatka News.
The papers generally are taking great
interest in the Williams-Lamar contro-
versy in regard to Mr. Lamar being
dropped from some of the committees
on which he served at previous terms.
It is only proper that the papers of
Florida s oul keep their readers posted
in regard to this affair as at the
next summer primaries Colonel Lomar
Swill get a rousing majority if he is right
but if it should develop, we hope it will
not, however, that he is in the wrong,
and is unfit for the position on the com-
mittee it is the duty of the voters to
ee to it that he is defeated. It would
certainly afford us great pleasure to see
one of Florida's Representatives in
Congress win out in a big conirovery
where he had such powerful opponent
as Mr. Lamar had in this case. We
will try to give our reader an article
from Wahmngton in regard to the true
status of this controversy.- Bristol Bee.
Anent the Hon. Bill" Lamar. He
has written to the Tallahassee Capital a
full page letter explaining what tois
termed "his side of the divergent view
on national questions of himself and

starts with a false premise as follows :

representatives in Washington, John
Sharp Williams, has removed Hon. D.
W. Sakleford of Missouri and myself
from the committee on interstate and
foreign commerce. This is one of the

as the complainants, but Mr. Williams
and the vast majority of the Democrat-
ic side thought they were better and
what they thinkgoes. What Mr. Lamar
should have saidis that "I Mr. Williams
refused to recommend Mr. Shackleford
and myself to the Speaker for appoint-
ment. It is one of the most important
committees of the House and should
have been made up in its minority
membership of the real leaders of dem-
ocratic party sentiment in the country,
like MYSELF and mr. shackleford."
But even then Mr. Lamar would not
have been better understood in the
urban precincts of his home State.-
"C(aracter Above Eche's."
E. B., in the Times-Union, pays the
following beautiful tribute to a good
man. While we were not personally
acquainted with McEachern, we repro-
duce it, that it may be an inspiration to
many of our young men:
Hugh McEachern has passed away
and his place will be hard to fill. He
struggled long and hard with the grim
scytheman, but the end came peace-
fully. He died with a sweet smite that
was chiselled on his countenance by the
hand of death. For it was not that he
feared to die, but that he might live to
do good, that he might serve his God,
his country and his friends was the hope
that bouyed him up through the last
great struggle. Few men have so
quickly made their impress on a great
State in so short time as H. A. Mc-
Eachern. Few men will ever be more
sorely missed by a great industry. His
was a unique character. He filled a
niche peculiarly his own.
With a keen insight into the hearts of
men he saw and derived their purposes.
He possessed many of the attributes
that have been ascribed to Abraham
Lincoln-he knew and felt for the com-
mon people. Of poor but proud parent-
age, he was of Scotch descent; he was
born in North Carolina, but lived most
of his life in Georgia. As a boy he was
fired with lofty ambition to become a
financier, but success did not spoil him.
His aim was ever to be right and to do
good. With him character was above
riches, "a good name worth more than
He exemplified the highest type of
American citizenship in living as well
as professing a Christian manhood. It
was in Florida he rounded out to best
advantage the superior quality of his
intellect, and character. It was here
he achieved his most signal success, and
so at his request they nave buried him
in Florida soil, where the last trump
may find him faithful to the people I e
loved and who loved him. But while
the great heart is stilled, the strong
arm is stricken down, the active brain
has ceased its labor, and the places that
knew him shall know him no more, may
we not feel assured that his life and ex-
ample will strive on and on, guiding and
inspiring to a purpose of high resolve?
Our hearts go out to the loved ones on
this sad Christmas, but as they think of
the old year with its trials of grief or
sorrow, let us say that from this life
and example we do gather hope and
courage. We catch inspiration to holier
and better things. For as time rolls on
the influence of such a life is never lost,
but brightens on even unto the perfect
It was a huge task to undertake the
cure of such a bad case of kidney dis-
ease as that of C. F. Collier, of Chero-
kee, la., but Electric Bitters did it. He
writes: "My kidneys were so far gone
I could not sit on a chair without a
cushion, and suffered from dreadful
backache, headache and depression. In
Electric Bitters, however, I found a

fund of the suffering and oppressed
Jeos in Russia. There is nothing
strange about it. Real brotherly love
is broader than mere sectarianism. The
fraternal societies have been teaching
this principle too long and too earnestly
not to have it bear fruit at such a time
as this. Brotherly love knows neither
race nor reed, and there yet seems to
be a whole lot of the real thing in this
world. The person who does not sym-
pathtise with those oppressed Russian
Jews must have a heart of adamant.

We don't believe that Governor Brow-
ard would make a very big mistake if
he would remove half a dosen more
office-holders of Volsla county, but he
will err in his appointments if he does
not look further-for his man than either
of the ring leader of the political fac-
tions of that county.--The Florida Ad-
If Governor Broward, in the suspen-
sion of County Solicitor Perkins from
office, and filling the vacancy by ap-
pointment, Is desirous of building up a
faction in this county, why he has made
a most unfortunate and deplorable be-
ginning--a b nnn that will be an
tnre taxasti upon the people of
the county.-Volusia Record.
When Governor Broward was sheriff
of Duval county he was removed from
office by Governor Mitchell and he and
his friends had a good deal to say about
it. and the good old Governor was de-
nounced as a despot. Now Governor
Broward has removed the solicitor of
Volusia county from office without no-
tice and the solicitor and his friends are
calling the Governor very ugly names.
They say he is more of a despot than
Mitchell without any of his redeeming
Fun by the barrel! Down in Volusia
county they are having fun by the bar-
rel. Upon complaint of some of the
politicians of that county Governor
Broward recently suspended J. W. Per-
kins, county solicitor, from office and
appointed J. Hall Brumsey in his place.
Before Mr. Brumsey could get the seat
warm he was arrested on a charge of
drawing a check on a bank without hav-
ing funds enough therein to pay it. It
is a bad state of affairs when courts are
appealed to for the purpose of gratify-
ing personal spite.-Jasper News.
A bad political mnui Volusla county
is suffering from a complication of In-
ternal disorders, caused by an acute
attack of factional politics. J. W. Per-
kins, the county solicitor, was removed
by Governor Broward, at the instance
of one of the county's factions, non-
performance of duty being the charge.
The Governor appointed J. Hall Brum.
sey a young lawyer of DeLand, to the
position, but the day after his appoint-
ment he was arrested on the charge of
giving a worthless check. Personal
spite and factional bitterness seem to
be working overtime in Volusia. Pa-
The removal by the Governor of J.
W. Perkins, of DeLand, as solicitor of
the Volusia criminal court, for alleged
neglect of duties, and without giving
the deposed officer a hearing, has caused
some bitter comment directed against
Governor Broward, not only in Volusia
county, but in all parts of the State.
Governor Broward appointed to the va-
cancy one J. Hall Brumsuy, a young
clientless lawyer of DeLand, and three
or four days after his appointment
Brumsey was arrested, charged with
passing checks without funds in the
bank, which, under the law of 1906, is a
felony punishable by not more than ten
ear n the pitentiary. The charge
made by Mr. SBehmdt, proprietor of
the Schmidt Villa, at DaytonaHe
claims that the Brumley cheek was for
more tha the mount of his board bill
and that be (Schmidt) gave Brumsey
the differensein ash. It has b sug

harge, but all who know Mr. Schmidt
will know just how little credence to
place in uen a story. Mr. Perkins, the
solicitor, was elected to his
ofEe by a vote which ran far and away
be ond any other ondidaee on the
ticket. He was the people's choice for
the office, and the Governor has cer-
tainly taken a high-handed course In
removing him, particularly on complaint
of Jeems Alexander and without so
much as giving Mr. Perkins a hearing.
If Governor Broward is to be such a
stickler for purity in elections, he had
better turn in the direction of Taylor
and Lafayette counties, by power of
the fraudulent primary votes in which
counties it is generally understood he
was enabled to assume his own high

eration, for It I supported by no testi-
mony and we have no reason to believe
that there is a tresf truth in it. The
Board of Pardon, has been criticised
because honest newspaper men, con-
cerned for the cause of law and order
in Florida and the punishment of crime;
- believed that board was not pursuing
the right policy in so often obstructing
the course of justi by extending clem-
meny to convicted criminals. That is all
there is to it-Live Oak Democrat.
Let's all keep cool We see no reason
why any newspaper not guilty as
charged should get excited over Gov-
ernor Broward's claim that the State is
afflicted with a few editors who sell ed-
itorial space at so much at inch. The
Governor doubtless had excellent
grounds for the statement--perhaps,
eves, it was based on his own personal
knowledge. We know some so-called
editors who would readily advocate the
cause of the devil for any position or
measures he might desire provided the
old gentleman was the highest bidder.-
Those "inch" editors! Governor
Broward has been criticized because of
his utterance in the JacksonVille Sun
that "we are afflicted with a sprinkling
of editors who sell editorial at so much
an inch, with sentiment thrown in."
We have no doubt in the world of the
correctness of the Governor's state-
ment. In the first place he has recently
had a large experience as a candidate.
As such he came in contact with many
newspaper men; he ought to know
whereof he affirms and we have no idea
that he deliberately lied about it. Again,
into every honorable vocation, profes-
sion and society on earth, unworthy
men seek and gain admission and we
have no idea that the profession of
journalism forms an exception to the
rule. Why it is only the other day that
the newspapers reported that a popular
preacher in Georgia had run away with
his neighbor's wife. The ministry, the
churches, the masonic lodges and in
fact all noble institutions and profes-
sions have their proportion of unworthy
members and doubtless many a worth-
less man has his name at the head of a
newspaper column as "editor." We
should feel sorry were it otherwise, be-
cause every article of genuine merit on
earth is counterfeited. We have coun.
terfeit gold, silver, pearl diamonds and
rubies. The discovery of a counterfeit
proves the existence of the genuine.
Hence the discovery of worthless, coun-
terfeit editors only proves that there
are many who are sterling gold.- Jasper

Railroad Valuatlens a Velusla.
Casual thought would not begin to
figure up the correct valuation of the
railroad possessions or railroad property
in Volusia county. These valuations
reach figures that are enormous, and
are hard to conceive unless one becomes
familiar with them.
The railroads operating in Volusia
county, which are the Florida East
Coast and Atlantic Coast Lines, as
shown by the books of Tax Assessor
8. B. Wilson own an aggrate valu-
ation, including main and side tracks,
rolling stock, equipment, depots, etc.,
of nfl196. Upon this valuation the
railroad pay a et txof $15,104.60 per
annum, which is divided as follows:
County, $10,16.74; State, $38.82.78;
sub-whol (mOwty), $1,415.06.

We hope that Lamar, Shackelford

their vaudeville buffoonery. Mr. Wil-

The time of the House was taken up
principally yesterday by quarrelling
democrats, who want to put Leader
Williams into pickle. It was amusing:
but the people pay for the circus.-
Two eminent Southern gentlemen
were able to call each other hard names
in the House of Representatives
Wednesday without any implication of
any bloodshed. When the gentleman
from Florida charges the gentleman
from Mississippi with being only "the
image of a shriveled ape," and the
gentleman from Mississipi intimates
that the gentleman from Florida is a
vain sorehead, and aLio a corpse that
does not know enough to keep its mouth
shut, and nothing whatever is doing in
the line of pistols and coffee, it is plain
that a great change has come over the
sunny South.-New York Mail.
If the present Congress keeps on as
it has begun it is not likely to get
through a great deal of business before
the end of the session. The House of
Representatives has wasted hours of its
working time this week over the griev-
ances of a couple of Democratic repre-
sentatives against the Democratic lead-
er. Representatives Lamar, of Florida,
and Shackelford, of Missouri, didn't
get committee assignments they want-
ed. They attribute this, probably cor-
rectly, to the refusal of Representative
Williams to recommend them to these
appointments. They consider that Rep-
resentative Williams. was almighty
mean about it. They have been giving
the House of Representatives their
opinion of Representative Williams
most of the time this week. Mean-
while the public business has been seri-
ously delayed. There is nothing in the
squabble of the slightest national im-
portance. There may be something of
importance to the Democratic party.
But the House of Representatives does
not sit to attend to the business of the
Democratic party. That is what the
Democratic caucus is for. Why would
it not be a good idea to charge repre-
sentatives rent for the use of the hall
of Congress for the airing of their per-
sonal grievances, besides docking their
salaries for the time thus taken from
their work ? New York Democrat and
Representative Lamar has made a
serious charge against Representative
Williams that cals for immediate ex-
pianation "He's a dog, that's what
he is," says Mr. Lamar. "I'll show
him with his swelled head and his Heid-
elberg jokes, that he cannot charge me
with something he cannot nsbstanti-
ate. No gentleman bold ever make
a charge that he cannot substantiate,
and Represntative Lamar should has-
ten totell a curious world about this

say about General Gilehrist and a of
them, except the Tallahass Democrat
have poken highly of him. We fear
that t Democrat does not see any
good in anybody or anything.-Citrus
Yes, we do, too I And we have had
nothing, as yet, to say of the General,
seriously. We have taken occasion to
publish his okra receipt, and his funny
card announcing that he would not
again be a candidate for the Legisla-
ture, but we fail to see anything about
him, or in him, that would go to prove
that he would make Florida a good Gov-
ernor. Would a Speaker of the House
of Representatives, who took the floor
and spoke against receiving the report
of a committee, appointed by himself,
to investigate corruption such as was
shown to exist in State Asylum affairs,
make Florida a good Governor? Be-
sides, it is believed that hidden, power-
ful outside influence was brought to
bear upon him to bring about that
grand spectacle. And that same influ-
ence mesmerized other high officials on
other important occasions during the
legislative session-particularly when
investigation was attempted. But,
glad we are to state, only nine mem-
bers voted with the General on that
proposition, and sorry to say that one of
the said nine wa.s from this city. Per-
haps. you do not know the General's
little peculiarities as do some other
Floridians who have many of his antics
in their scrap book.
CULTIVATING THE VOICE.
To speak agreeably is to possess a
power for pleasure and for good. Of
two natures, that which actually con-
tains the less gentleness or refinement
may, by harmonious tones nd properly
trained delivery, appear in the finer
light. We suffer for lack of education
in management of our voice, as surely
as if we were deficient in the ordinary
branches taught in schools. In Ameri-
can education nothing is neglected so
completely as the voice. It is hardly
realized that the impression of a per-
sonality is conveyed by tones as surely
as by appearance, by carriage, or by
what one says. Of Anne Page we know
"Her voice wan ever soft.
Gentle and low-an excellent thing in woman."
Among our own acquaintances we
count few women who could thus be
praised, and few men also whose voices
are a source of pleasure. If the voice
is trained early, beautiful speaking be-
comes natural, and an instrument of
charm is substituted for one of discord.
It is not difficult. All that is required
is a standard of tones and enunciation.
These things could then be taught as
easily as spelling or arithmetic. --Col-

WedoUday was a plant day for
the Methodists of thi city, for, with
their eharaeteistie generoaity, they
kept open house at the district parc-
age in honor of the arrival of the new
presiding elder, Rev. J. W. Bigham,
who, with his family, arrived here on.
that day from Tallahasse, and will fot
the next year be a resident of this eity
though, of course, his work will carry
him over the entire Orlando district.
Knowing that all good Methodists are
good eaters, the ladies of the church
here had prepared a sumptuous dinner
for the elder and his family, and quite
a number of them were on hand to take
care of them. The affair was a pleas-
ant surprise to the good man and his
family, and they entered heartily into
the spirit of the occasion. All the good
things one could desire were there, es-
ecially prepared and ready to be eaten.
Thus the presiding elder and family
were welcomed to Bartow and the work
of the year begun in a way that will
prove that the people of Bartow will do
great work in the Master's vineyard the
Next Sunday morning and evening
Mr. Bigham will conduct services at the
Methodist church. It is hoped he will
beU reeted by a large congregation.
Good music will be rendered by the
choir, and a regular old-time religious
service will be held.-Bartow Courier-
In Praise of Chamberlain's Cough
There is no other medicine manufac-
tured that has received so much praise
and so many expressions of gratitude as
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It is
effective, and prompt relief follows its
use. Grateful parents everywhere do
not hesitate to testify to its merits for
the benefit of others. It is a certain
cure for croup and will prevent the at-
tack if given at the first appearance of
the disease. it is especially adapted to
children, as it is pleasant to take and
contains nothing injurious. Mr. E. A.
Humphreys, a well known resident and
clerk in the store of Mr. E. Lock, of
Alice, Cape Colony, South Africa, says:
"I have used Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy to ward off croup and colds in
my family. I found it to be very satis-
factory and it gives me pleasure to
recommend it." For sale by all drug-
Comments on BucKman Law.
The Supreme Court of the State,
which has had the Buckman school bill
under consideration for a month past,
hhs rendered a decision sustaining ev-
ery feature of the law and settling, we
hope for all time, a matter that has
been a source of annoyance and great
expense to the tax payers of Florida. -
The Buckman law has been declared
by the Supreme Court to be constitu-
tional. The case may be appealed to
the Supreme Court of the Unit ed
States. It is sure to be appealed to the
Most Supreme Court of Florida-the
ballot box, and there a verdict will be a
verdict rendered which will forbid the
robbery of the poor for the benefit of
the rich. The political triumph of the
supporters of the Buckman law will be
short lived. -Jasper News.
There is some talk of appealing to
the Supreme Court of the United States
from the decision of the Florida Su-
preme Court affirming the constitution-
ality of the Buckman law. What's the
use of worrying those august judges in
Washington? If our constituted au-
thorities in Florida haven't got sense
enough to rightly decide purely Florida
issues it is a strange and humiliating
fact. We suspect that the Supreme
Court of the United States is getting
mighty tired of being worked overtime
to settle so many disputes already fair-
settled by the State Courts. It is a
x tor tribute to the Southern doctrine of
tate's rights.-Live Oak Democrat.

What the South Gets From Panama
(New Orleans Picayune.)
Those of the Southern people who are
so eager to put control of their com-
merce, both by land and water, under
supreme power of the Federal Govern-
ment, should pause a little while they
take note of a debate in Congress when
the Panama Canal appropriation bill
was before the House on Thursday.
Hon. Champ Clark, of Missouri, ques-
tioning Republican Congressmen who
were engineering the bill, brought out
t iat the United States Canal Commission
has bought and owns and operates five
steamships which are plying between
Colon at the Atlantic terminus of the
canal and New York.
Occasionally the Canal Commission
purcha. e something in New Orleans,
and has it carried in private vessels,
batthe lion's share, the great bulk of
the enormous amount of supplies that
go from this country to the canal con-
struction, is sent from or through the
port of New York in I'ncle Sam s own
'[hat is the plainest sort of fact, and
it proves what the Picayune has con-
stantly contended, that the Federal
Government is a vast sectional orlani-
zation, operated for the benefit an( en-
richment of the people of Northern
States, while we in the South only get
the crumbs and husks that fall from
the great Federal table
If this is the state of things under r
present conditions, what will it be when
the Federal power shall control all the
railroads and the quarantine, and by
consequence the commerce of the
Southern ports ? Then we of the South
will not get-even the crumbm.

is what goes straight to the heart of
every man at breakfast time, and every
one knows that only good grocers keep
good coffee. We take special pride in
our brands, as they have made our

holds good throughout our entire stack.
We sell nothing but the best of food
products-those we have tested our-
selves, and so can stand by them.
