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.

Speaker on the question of the adoption
to the report. Of the fve who actu-
ally served three of them did not
ort the Speaker in his candidacy.
Chairman of the committee was
opposed to the Speaker too, as to the
adoption of th report. Yet that eom-
mittea made a unsp s* report, the
nature of which gave them the name of
the "White-waahing Committee. '
There was aubmittoed two hundred and
seventy pages of evidence.
I wish to state that no one suggesstodpi
the name of a single member of thi
committee. Mr. Noble was appointed
in accordance with the custom of the
House; he being the mover of the reso-
lution, I selected the other five without
knowing or caring for their predilection
on this subject. I simply considered
them good, solid men.
No "hidden, powerful outside influ-
ence was brought to bear upon" me in
the appointment of any of these com-
mittees, or in the position which 1 took
against the adoption of this report.
No influence in the world, directly or
indirectly "was brought to bear upon"
me to do my plain duty in this case.
This report contained matter, which
in my opinion, was unjust. The adop-
tion of it was contrary to all precedent.
The adoption of the report of one vis-
iting committee without the adoption
of the others, would be a disrepect to
the other committees. If the dignity
of the House required that the House
should adopt the report of a committee
composed of members of the Senate,
and of the House, why should not the
same dignity have required him to sup-
port the findings of the so called
"White washing Committee?" which
was composed exclusively of members
of the House?
I have been anxiously waiting to see
whether or not there were in the en-
tire counties of Gadsden and Leon more
than one just man, who might possibly
be upon the grand jury of these coun-
ties. Judge Malone was in Tallahassee
at the time. I fail yet to see his
charge to the grand jury in reference
to this corruption, and the indictments
by the grand jury.
We hope that each and every mem-
ber of Investigating Committee No. 1
treasures in his bosom a kind remem-
brance of Speaker Gilchrist.
To say that the said members' feel-
ings were prayerfully consulted, that
his private opinion made public in re-
port was regarded as sublimely sacred -
by the Speaker of the House, is simply
drawing it mild and truthfully.
As for ourselves, we can only express
in our feeble way an infinitesimal frac-
tion of the deep and proud admiration,
akin to awe, we feel for the man who
knows every ingredient in the composi-
tion of the "dignity of the House" and
can size up a joint committee to an X-
ray finish. And proud we are to learn
that "hidden, powerful outside influ-
ence" takes unto itself an alibi, and
that this Legislature was afflicted with
either sweeneyed understandings or a
non-sentimental disregard of "prece-
dent." Glad to learn that General Gil-
christ was moved by no hidden or out-
side influence, but by a powerful inside
love of "precedent" and a spirit of
gallantry (see feminine telegram) that
was indeed becoming.
Now, we want it understood that we
do not object to "precedent" but let
it be of the right breed and tote a
proper pedigree.
When in its report a committee ap-
pointed to investigate alleged fraud
states that it found itself hampered and
handicapped by "lack of records, de-
tailed itemized accounts and other data
asked for," and therefore failed to get
at important facts, it certainly is a
juicy gem of a "precedent" which says
that such report is final and sufficient,
and that all subsequent committees for
the same purpose are mere noxious su-
And we are given to understand that
committees are appointed supposedly to
make reports, which reports are not
supposed to be made for adoption (ac-
cording to precedent), but as a matter
of form-or farce. In other words, in-
vestigating committees are a necessary
contrivance, but a ring, tailed nuisance,
all the same
General Gilchrist does not believe in
big, strong words on small, weak occa-
sions. He is a language temperance
exhorter, or word specialist-on com-
mittee occasions; and has a brass mon-
key motto: "Hear no evil; see no evil;
speak no evil." Well "blessed are the
pure in heart"
Now, if the General can bring forth
proof that there was but little scandal-
ous in the State asylum management,
as his discreet silence on that particu-
lar item intimates, then we will own up
and play with him in the same back
yard on his "plain duty proposition, and
also blow any number of trumpets in
his praise. We will then endeavor to

bring "hidden powerful outside influ-
ence into pleasant juxtaposition with
legislative "precedent," and when they
become one and indivisible we will re-
joice with great joy.
But. as it is, the "winter of our discon-
tent" is still perfect, and we will make
it a point to remain in statu quo until
this particular spirit of the Jennings
administration has been brushed clean
by evidence never yet produced.
We realize that "wisdom abideth not
in multiplicity of words," but The True
Democrat has a remark or two still to
make, apologizing with haste when
prottw u'rowg, but not before.
General Albert Gilchrist, a candidate
for Governor, writes us to "wipe off
your chin. pull down your vest and be
good,"' and we do try to be good.

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
store famous. Just as good as the cof-
fee sell are teas, which principle
holds good throughout our entire stack.
We sell nothing but the beat of food
products-those we have tested our-
selves, and so can stand by them.
