A New York dispatch of January 28
says: "An imposing military pageant,
passing across Brooklyn bridge, brief
services at t. Thomas Epiaeopal Church
in Fifth avenue, and an escort acres
the North river ferry to Jersey City,
where the body was placed on a train,
to be taken to Washington for inter-
ment in the National Cemetery at Ar-
lington, marked the funeral in this city
today of Brig. Gen. Joseph Wheeler,
cavalry leader of the Confederacy, and
later one of the most prominent figures
among the generals of the Spanish-
American war. The body of the dead
soldier was wrapped in the flags under
which he had served with almost equal
vigor and distinction the stars and bars
of the Confederate States and the Stars
and Stripes.
Veterans of the Southern and North-
ern armies mingled today in paying
tribute to Gen. Wheeler, with the
younger veterans of the Cuban and
Philippines campaigns of 1898 and 1899.
The route of the funeral cortege was
lined with great crowds, most of whom
stood with bared heads as the proces-
sion passed.
Dr. Stirres, in his sermon, said: "This
is one of the great occasions of our
lives. For we are met to honor the
memory of a rare man. I do not speak
to you of him principally as a citizen,
statesman, or soldier, for the mer* rec-
ord of his deeds is far more eloquent
than any praise of ours could be. It is
of the man I think at this hour. Was
he entitled to be called great? It is not
difficult for you to decide.
"'He was distinguished by courage
without rashness, by wisdom without
pride, by gentleness without weakness,
by patience without heedlessness, and
by justice, which always leaned toward
mercy. He honored man, he trusted
man, and to every man he was ready to
give his time, his substance, his heart.
'The North gives him unstinted
honor. The South, even in her grief,
is proud of her ever-loyal son. Cuba,
for whose freedom he fought, sobs out
her grief across the waves, and the
whole world pauses a moment today to
declare that this was indeed a man.
"'Let there be little of sadness here.
We are not commemorating a defeat; it
is the victory of life-the triumph of a
noble character.' "
When the Tallahassee Democrat cen-
sures General Gilchrist for coming to
the defense of helpless women during
the insane asylum investigation the ed-
itor is butting his cocoanut against a
brick wall that is liable to shatter that
frail receptable of a distorted imagina-

We have censured General Albert
Gilchrist for no such thing, nor have we
censured him for anything else. We
calledattention to one of his public
acts, and then gave him space in our
newspaper in his effort to explain. If
he failed to do so intelligently the blame
is with him. We care no more for
General Albert Gilchrist than we do for
a number of other over-rated Florida
politicians, some of whom are in office,
and who go about trying to fool the
people, and whenever it is right and
proper to call them up before the pub-
lic, we shall not hesitate to do so. As

Reform Stite politics is not to b
brought about by accusing everything
in general without making specific
charges. If graft does exist as Th
True Democrat declares, it should b
the offMee of The Democrat to point ou
where the graft exists. If The Demo

ciflc case, the State ress will support
it. This general "knocking" should
stop. It indicates, unless The Demo

charge, a spirit of pessimism.
Brother Collins may rest assured the
the inherent love for clean politics an
open and honest administration of civi
affairs that exists in the people of thi
State will finally assert itself. Th
work of reform that The True Demo
crat has endeavored to launch is gooc
but the method is the objection th
State press raises.
Reforms are not to be brought about
in a day. It has ever taken years an
scores of years to awaken any people t
the need of a reform. Once the nee
of a reform is inculcated in the people
the result is swift and sure. Reform
have always taken place when the nee
was evident. The pessimistic spirit
that declares that reforms are eve
needed and that unless remedy is ha
that things will go the pow-wows ha
ever proven a fallacy. The past history
creates an optimistic spirit, rather tha
a spirit of pessimism.

Collins that reform is needed, by spe

follow. Bartow Record.

Manager Phillips announces that after
considerable negotiation he has closed
contracts with the management of
"The Beggar Prince" Opera for an ap-
pearance for matinee and night Febru-
ary 3.
This engagement Mr. Phillips consid-
en the most notable in the amusement
line that has been effected in some time,
the company requiring a large guaran-
tee for one performance. The piece is
built on operatic lines enacted by per-
formers who are trebly gifted-being
vocalists, farceurs, and possessing dra-
matic ability as well. "The Beggar
Prince" is composed of these three en-
tertaining elements this season. This
edition has been edited by Wm. H. Ly-
dell, author of "Gayest Manhattan', and
other New York Travesty Successes.
The presenting company is headed by
Miss Etta Merris, soprano and comedi-
enne, well and favorably known to pat-
rons of light opera for the past seven
seasons having had the responsible roles
innumereus musical reviews of impor-
tance. As a fun-maker few ladies can
impart to an audience that feeling of
oppntaniety and good fellowship that
MISs Merris can. She possesses a style
all her own, and Is ably assisted by
clever comedians and pretty girls cos-
tumed in fetching gowns. The latter,
during the action of the play, will intro-
duce for the first time here, the
"Sammy Girls," "The Noble Firemen,"
"Belles and Beaux at the Sea Shore,"
and numerous other musical and vocal
ensemble numbers. The latest light-
ning effects known to stageland are em-
ployed in enhancing a performance that
will be a loss to miss witnessing. Man-
ager Phillips' enterprise in securing at-
tractions of this calibre will no doubt be
appreciated by our playgoers, and a big
house is assured. "The Beggar Prince
will be given for matinee, 36c and fOc,

The New Orleans Item said in its is-
sue of Jan. 16th: "Miss Alyce Keenan
yesterday introduced her most recent
success, "Not Like Other Girls." The
show is a decided innovation of the
general class of plays which are now
running at the other local houses and
on the whule proved interesting and
was well received. Alyce Granger,
Miss Keenan is gifted with second
sight and in India has learned the art
of hypnotism. She uses her great gift
to unravel the mystery of the death of
Deacon Coleman and finally fastens the
guilt of the crime on Frederick Clay-
ton. The plot of the show centers
about this woman and in a masterful
manner she gradually leads her audi-
ence through a dim, bewildering maze
of mystery into clear light, convicting
the true murderer. The show is very
good and the cast exceptionally strong.
The stage work was about the best
that has ever been witnessed here, and
the general impression is that the com-
pany has inaugurated a most successful
engagement. The play will run through
the week with the regular matinees'.

is respectfully favited 4o the following
seriois a with whiekh t Lake
City C Re qt the 3th Inst.
eome a torial referense to the
Backman bill:
The people of this State should be
apprised of t fact that the highest
ofiials of this State have compired to
rob and defraud them.'
"As tw Tampa Herald has undertaken
to champion the present admnistration,
it would seem to be its duty to take
prompt oenisance of the tabve grave
accusation, which includes in it scope
the Governor and his cabinet and the
judges of the Supreme Court.
"Levity aside, however, the Lake City
paper surely cannot mean what it says.
t cannot be poslble that "the highest
officials of the State," the men whom
the people trusting in their honor and
integrity, have elected to the loftiest
positions within their gift, are guilty of
conspiracy, robbery and rascality di-
rected against the very people who
placed them in the positions they now
"These officials, like the mostof man-
kind, are fallible. They may make mis-
takes; indeed, the Herald has openly
charged some of them with having been
betrayed into errors, but it has never
attacked the integrity of any one of
them, because it has always regarded
all of them, and still regards them,
notwithstanding the charge of the Lake
City paper, as gentlemen of honor, who
are inspired solely by conscietious mo-
"The charge that they, or any of
them, are so base as to enter into a
'conspiracy to rob and defraud' the
people who elected them is monstrous,
and it will not be credited by any man
who takes time to consider.
"Why should our 'highest State offie-
isas' do these things? What have they
to gain either politically or otherwise
by bose conduct? Are they not men of
intelligence, and, being such, do they
not know, as all others know, that the
path of rectitude Is the only one for
them to tread to reach the goal of honor
and success of any kind? Even if we
presume that their motives do not ac-
cord in loftiness with the official sta-
tions they occupy, we must give them
credit for common sense; and having
this, as they certainly do, they would
assuredly not adopt any course of action
which they know leads to dishonor.
"The publication of the indiscriminate
charge that they are corrupt, is quite a
serious matter, and our Lake City con-
temporary should have hesitated long
before making it. If the Citizen-Re-
porter has knowledge of any corrupt or
unlawful act on the part of any of our
highest officials, it should point it out
and name the guilty party, and not
make an accusation of such a wholesale
"But, as said in the beginning, the
Citizen-Reporter assuredly was not in
earnest in making such a sweeping
charge. It must have had something
very irritating in mind that caused it to
lapse and to say something which it
really did not intend.
"Our State officials were chosen from
amongst the best men in Florida, and if
they are rascals, what sort of people
are the rest of us!"

Basleoss vs. Politics.
J. M. P., in the Jacksonville Metrop-
olis, says he had no idea that some busi-
neess men in Jacksonville injected so
much politics into business until he had
occasion to deal with one a few days
ago. He wanted to buy a lot, and the
owner said that he would agree to sell
the land at a certain price if he would
agree to use his influence to elect a cer-
tain man to the office of sheriff at the
next county election. This was the
limit. He told his friend that he didn't
care to deal on any such terms* that he
never promised his vote or influence in
elections to anyone. He purchased
other property that had no political
strings tid to it. Politics mixed up in
business is a bad combination and are
dangerous to fool with.

The troubled ife of Prince Ashille
Murat has lon been over, and with his
wife by his ie, he sleps the last long
sleep In an alien country.
One loudless Indian summer morn-
ig I set out with a friend to view their
tomb for the first time. We had no
trouble In finding the old cemetery. It
wore a peaceful sid, this city of the
dead, and I sadly thought of the count-
les numbers burled there, who a few
short months or ears back, trod the
earth with their Joys and sorrows the
ame as we, who in time to come will
sleep Just as peacefully, and strangers
pass us carelessly by. There stood a
tomb a hundred years old, crumbling
beneath the weight of Time; here lays
govenror's wife; over there a tiny, tiny
mound, outlined with bricks, without a
flower or a blade of grass-how pitiful
It looked, yet methought its wee occu-
pant rested as peacefully as the rich
man's child across the way, whose last
resting place was by a monument as
handsome an money could buy.
The rich semi-tropical flowers had
beautified the place to a great degree.
In one corner a running rose had en-
twined its tendrils around the trunk
and among the branches of a giant live
oak, where swaying tendrils of gray
mouse mingled with its gorgeous blos-
soms; in another place was a Japonica,
loaded with beautiful wax-like flowers.
Near the front entrance stood a large
century plant, which had bloomed the
previous year, as the sexton afterward
tod us, attracting many people to the
cemetery to see the unusual sight.
After wandering about for nearly
thirty minutes, we came upon the tomb
of the prince and princess near the mid-
dle of the cemetery. Two modest,
marble shafts mark the spot where they
rest, bearing respectively the following

rheumatism of the muscles and may
be cured by applying Chamberlain's

Th Value of Publiclty.
A committee of the New York Cham-
ber of Commerce has made a report to
that body in which the evils of "sordid
commercialism" are pointed owit as
calling for protest and correction. The
report as printed in our dispatches yes-
terday says: "The very atmosphere
of our commercial life has become Im-
pregnated with an undue desire for
wealth and power. To attain these
ends apparently no means have been
left unemployed." In the opinion of
committee publicity is the only weapon
which can beused to successfully com-
bat this evil. Referring more espec-
ially to the insurance revelations the
report says: "Publicity Is really the
best means of keeping those who hold
fiduciary positions under the eye of the
public. It thereby gives the officers
and directors a realizing sense of obli-
gations resting on their administration,
as has been evidenced by the rapidity
with which reforms have been institu-
ted since publicity has been given to
the internal affairs of these compan-
Publicity! Its great value has been
convincingly demonstrated in the last
year. Its white light has been turned
into dark places, and rottenness and
rascality have been pitilessly revealed,
making possible the correction of evils
that are eating Into the very life of the
Nation. None dreads publicity as do
the evil-doers, those who commit wrong
against private and public interests, the
grafters, the betrayers of trusts, the
corruptionists in office.
The greed for money Is great in these
days of mercenary lust and sordid am-
bition, but the press can exert a pow-
erful Influence In making infamous
those who acquire it dishonestly. Pub-
licity can reach where courts can not.
Even the most venal and sordid desire
to be regarded as respectable. Public-
ity Is a preventative and a purifier. It
is an effective agent in clearing the
moral atmosphere. The scoundrel who
feels confident of escaping the law be-
comes frightened at the thought of pub-
licity. When it is active and coura-
geous its restrainining influence is great-
er than the court, greater than the
pulpit, greater than any other ency.
The newspapers of the United Sstates
have a great responsibility resting
upon them. They have a gIeat oppor-
tunity, a great work an important
duty. In the name of honesty and pa-
triotism and decency they should meas-
ure up to their opportunities with due
appreciation of the good they can do.-

Survivors of the wrek say that Gra-

"It was one time when gold would not

General Wheeler.
The country has lost an admirable cit-

country had come to call him. And the
whole country knows and mourns its
loss.-New York Times.
The knightliest of knights, a gentle-
man without fear and without reproach,
lies dead in Brooklyn today. There
never was a braver soldier, a courtlier
gentleman or a better man than Joseph
Wheeler of Alabama. His death will
l:be mourned with heartfelt sincerity
from one end of the American continent
to the other; by the North as by the
South.-Brooklyn Times.
General Wheeler has not long sur-
vived Fitzhugh Lee. Each in his time
fought for, against and for the Stars
and Stripes again. Each died an hon-
ored soldier of the Union. Let us be
grateful to those brave soldiers of the
union, notably to Grant, who, forty
years ago, by their magnanimity so ex-
pressed the sentiment of the north to-
ward brethren who had erred that pro-
acriptoin of the vanquished was impos-
sible after Appomattox. To this we
owe the later gallant services of Lee
and Wheeler for the Union, and the
present military availability to the

County Jail Tallahassee, Fl. Jan. 26.
Editor True democrat:
Please allow me space in your valu-
able paper to protest against the ie-
gal, unlawfu-andb- n sat-
ment accorded me byt e of this
county. I, Harry Welmont, with WI-
nona Publishing Co., entered the gates
of this city last Thursday, p. Fri-
day night between 9 and 10 o'clock I
was arrested by one of the sheriff's
deputies without the formality of a
warrant, placing me in jail here and
keeping me in involuntary confinement
without granting me even a preliminary
trial; refuses me the privilegeof seeing
a lawyer to take out Habeas Corpus
proceedings, or to establish my Inno-
cence or identity. Theonly satisfaction
I can get isthat he thought I was a
suspicious character. Think of that!
He thought I was suspicious looking.
I was under the impression that a sher-
iff's duties were to enforce laws as he
finds them. If I did look esmplo did
that give him the right to arrest me
and keep me here eight or aine days
without trial? Apd wnen he wasaUtas-
fled himself as'tf whond'what I am,
and rel. cases me what redress do I get
for such treatment. caused by eOcial
blunderini and grewd? If he chooses
to fall back on tha old worn out ex-
euse that he did his duty as he saw it,
who is the victim, the State or the sus-
pect? The answer i quite plain to the
dullest one. as the State teday practi-
cally holds itself immune from reprisal
to innocent men who have bee made
victims of official overIxealam-s or
blundering. Tnen consider the facisal
loss of such a proceeding to to the apect
and tax-payers Before closing allow
me to thank you in advance ping

P. S. I have just read one of the
most malicious falsehoods ever tad on

Frank Harris celebrates this year his
fortieth anniversary as editor of the
Ocala Banner.
Forty years I That is a long distance
view i'. perspective, but if one could
view it in retrospect, as does Mr. Har-
ris, the chances are It would not seem
so remote. And yet 40 years is a long
time and the Ocala Banner is no fledge-
Perhaps it is its age and the mental
maturity of its editor that gives this
paper its tone. For it has a tone one
that makes it worthy of all emulation
in its news features and comments on
current events. Maybe this excellence
of tone is the result of that good-natur-
ed geniality- that mellowness w h I c h
comes with age as in wine
And yet Frank Harris in not an old
man. He is only an experienced man-
a man who has accumulated wisdom
and who looks out upon the world with
kindly eyes and views human frailties
in charity. You can see that much in
hi paper without half looking.
We can't all be like Frank Harris,
but we oaI aqeome into a better un-.
derstanding f our responsibtUties to
the public s ditors by studying him
and hia methods and striving to excel
as he excels. May he and his Banner
live long and prosper Palatka News.

Gen. Joseph Wheeler
Editor True Democrat:
In the death of Gen. Joe Wheeler
the nation loses an illustrious son. Al-
though born in the South, and probably
with the excel t on of Rokert E. Lee
and Stonewall Jackson the South's
most beloved son, yet he was truly a
hero in the minds of the people in
every section of the country. The
writer was in Washington at the time
of President McKinley a first inaugura-
tion, when every State in the Union
was represented and could not fail to
notice and be impressed with the re-
ception all along the line of Pennsylva-
nia avenue, which the dashing Confed-
erate leader received. In fact it
rivalled McKinley's and bespoke the
love, worship and admiration we all feel
for the departed hero.
Gen. Wheeler was born in Augusta,
Ga., September 10, I3, In l99 he
graduated from West Point, then com-1
mencing a life devoted to the interest
and welfare of his country.
Gen. Wheeler's career in C'ngress
was like his military record. lie n ser-
vices covered a period of eighteen
years, broken only by the Spanish-
American war. Ilis speeches were
prepared with great care and would
have done credit to John C. Calhoun
He was also a man of great literary
ability, his articles being in great de-
mand by some of our mount popular

The Good CItexon.
To be a good citizen, is the duty of
every citizen. But when we say "good
citizen" of course we mean relatively
good. We all have our faults and fail-
ings, more or less, during more or less,
due more from a lack of knowledge,
than with any intent to do, or think
wrong. Neither do we mean the
"goody good man." One whose pro-
fessions of goo4neas is piled up, run-
ning over with a perfect waste of
goodness on thedesert air. But a good
citizen is an average good man, honest
and upright in al his dealings. He
may be a church man or may not. A
man may be a good citizen and not a
church member. A good citizen is pub-
lic spirited. He realizes the value of
progress along the lines that tend to
elevate the welfare of his community,
and thus he is found in -the ranks of
progress, whether it is for schools,
churches, and all mental and moral en-'
terprises. He is a strong believer in
industrial progress. He don't propose
to carry a erk in one end of hi meal
sack to balance it, because his daddy
did. In fact, he is an intelligent, "git
up and git" kind of a man. And most
especially he is a friend to the old Ad-
vertiser, one of the substantial kind.
There's lots of good citizens in old
