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.

to dissent from that part of It reflecting
upon ex-Governor Jennings. In the
person of W. S. Jennings Hernando
county gave to the State one of its best
Governors. His administration was one
of the beat in its history. We also hold
that when a political trickster ets into
office "and the people of Florida have
reaped burdensome results from the
effects of it," he should be defeated "in
the coming" or any other "campaign,"
and kept out of office ever after. "Po-

We are willing to concede the right
to the editor of the Argus his opinions
of W. S. Jennings and his administra-
tion of the State's affairs; also to those
of his other allies from and in Her-
nando county; but as we are posted on
some affairs connected with him and
his government, are also clearly en-
titled to our own opinion, and believing
it a conscientious duty, have never
fail.-d to give publicity to some of them,
and it now resolves itself into a simple
and honest difference of opinion, and
we shall not fall out with him about
that, but with him will exclaim: "Po-

Some time ago the newspapers con-
tained an item to the effect that ex-
Governor Jennings was erecting, or
would erect, a fine residence in Jack-
sonville, and the Capitol of March 30th
copies another item from the Orlando
Reporter, which says the ex-Governor
is "about to build a 60x70 foot two-
story building at Brooksville, fitted
throughout with modern appliances, to
cost $7,000." Only a few years before
he was elected Governor, on legislative
authority, he was let off of a heavy
bond he was surety on because he had
performed some legal services in help-
ing to collect from some other bonds-
men for the State, and on a plea of
being broken by the freeze. Now,
Floridians know how expensively he
lived, and how he traveled all over the
country, which was expensive, and that
he went through a very expensive Sen-
atorial campaign just before his term
as Chief Executive of Florida was at
an end These are all acts of a public
nature and the public are inquiring
how he managed to have done so on a
.salary of $3,500 per year for four years;
but then, when we have it from the
most reliable authority that he made a
statement on a train to the effect that
he "had paid off $40,000," etc., and is
still so much to the good, that he can
foster and sustain so many enterprises,
people will wonder and talk and ask
questions as to how could he do it? He
is yet a power in the land, however,

paI remember the day John M. Cald-
well, editor of the Jasper News, came
to my office. He was with Senator
Frank Adams, both of whom own rodp-
erty in Dade county. Mr. Calwell
asked bout his taxes, and particular, TAX
denounced the drainage assessment. Cald-
wave him a statement of the amount he
was due the county and he said he would
send me a check for the amount. Mr.
Adams made no complaint about his
taxes and did not join the discussion
with Mr. Cawelwell
"While these gentlemen were in my
office an aged lady complained about
her taxes being increased nearly double
what they had been ain the past.sessme and did
not have sufficient money with her to
pay the amount due I explained to her
thsendt the increased assessments made
last year of 50 to 100 per cent with the
additional 12 mills put on by the county
commissioners, was responsible for the
increase. Not a word was said about
the drainage tax, and any statement
otherwise is maliciously false.
"After Mr. Caldwell had returned to
his home I received a check from him
fortheamountaof his taxes in this coun-
ty, less the, assessment for the State
the drainage fund, and which I had given
him"Afte promptly returned the check to
him and informed him that he knew I
could not accept it as taxes without the
drainage amount included. He replied
by stating that he had sent the first
amount purposely to test me, and in-
closed another check for certain prop-
erty not liable to the drainage tax, but
did not pay the tax on that which is."-
Miami Metropolis.
As we were one of the newspapers .'
that published Bro. John Caldwell's ed-
itorial, until we hear him admit that he
published a false story in connection
with that drainage tax matter, we still
contend that the collection of that acre-
age tax is a "burning shame" and an
outrage. If that "woman" was not
there, and did not own any land in the
drainage district, there are yet a lot of
other poor people who are paying and
have paid it, and the principle stands
just the same.
No one objects to the Railroad Com-
mission's secretary, Hon. Royal C.
Dunn, defending, or attempting to de-
fend, the drainage board and its actions,
however; that's his business and his
privilege, and he is welcome to it and
all that can come to him out of it,
though we must admit we think he
might be in better business as secretary
of the Railroad Commission.

The Texas Legislature has been called

correcting a single section of the elec-
tion law passed at a previous session,
which had been so bungled in the phras- /
ing when it showed up in type that it
practically invalidated the whole law.

Earlv left an orphan, his training in the
school was limited. He was the foster
child of adversity. But the youth who
can bear the strain and endure the pri-
vation of carving his own fortune, under
difficulties and circumstances that were
almost insuperable, to climb the dizzy
heights of professional eminence and
political honor, is in every way worthy
of the esteem and confidence of the
Of the people, poor and struggling to
fit himself to tili a sphere of usefulness
and honor, he learned lessons more dif-
ficult than those taught in the schools.
Almost from the day of his entrance
into Congress he has been recognized as
one of its foremost and ablest members.
He has ever been in the thick of the
fight, battling bravely for the right as
he saw it, and however heated and tur-
bulent the scene, his mind is ever clear,
his aim definite, his purpose unfaltering
and his poise of character so superb as
to challenge the admiration of his con-
freres With no external influences to
aid him, victory came to him through
the sheer force of his strong intellect
and attractive personality, and he dur-
ing his second term became a member
of the Rivers and Harbors Committee,
a distinguished honor sought by nearly
every Congres.sian, but attained by
very few.
The profound admiration excited by
the eminent services he has rendered
the State of Florida, in a position which
displays hisgreat and forceful qualities,
will render any and all opposition to
him futile He believes in the tradi-
tions, teachings and principles of the
Democratic party, but his party fealty
is not of that cheap quality which con-
stantly proclaims itself lest it be over-
looked, nor does he so parade it as to
render it personally offensive to others.
., While his opinion is always firm and
founded upon investigation and convic-
tion, yet he scrupulously respects the
judgment of those who differ with him.
He is great enough to recognize the
right of all men to think for themselves
and he has never yet so belittled him-
self as to impute improper motives or
lack of ability to those who had reached
conclusions and expressed opinions con-
trary to his own.
He is now in the zenith of his splen-
did intellectual and physical manhood,
ripe in experience, full of knowledge,
with every faculty trained and more
thoroughly fitted to discharge his duties
as representative than at any time in
his career, it would be folly to change,
really it weuld be a calamitous com-
pendium of evil to deprive the State

gone conclusion, no matter who may

Here we have the explanation of the
high handed and arbitrary action of the
Drainage Commissioners published a
few days ago, ordering the tax collect-
ors to enforce the collection of the ille-a
gal tax against every property owner
who cannot afford to go into the courts
and enjoin the tax. Justice unfortu-
nately costs money! The effect of this
harsh and grossly unjust order will be
that the rich and strong property own-
ers will go into the courts and escape
the payment of the illegal tax, but the
weak and poor, who cannot afford tl.e
luxury of chancery justice, will be
forced to pay this void tax. Was ever
grouser injustice perpetrated by any
tate government' In greed and in
cold blood deliberately to extort the
hard-earned money of the poor and of
the weak and defenseless in the face of
justice and in defiance of the decrees of
the courts. And why? To help the
trustees out of the hole they have dug
for themselves!

Academy Building Contract.
Child Bros. have been awarded the
contract to build the Academy building
at the State Colored Normal and Indus-
tria! School. It is to be a nice building,
constructed of the new cement artificial
stone brick which they are now manu-
facturing successfully and profitably
for themselves, having now in operation
their own plant for manufacturing of
brick. The Childs have given this work
quite a lot of study and that, with their
experiments at making the brick, puts
them in a position to be better able to
handle buildings and work needing
brick. While they have only been op-
erating for a short while, they are now
receiving more orders for the brick than
they can handle, and no doubt will take
steps to increase the capacity of the
plant. Thus another smail business in-
dustry is added; let others follow, for
such things go to help make a city.
The State Board of Control.
After concluding a session of the
State School Hoard of Control at Lake
City, they held a meeting here Tuesday
and transacted such business as came
before them, re-electing Dr Andrew
Sledd president, and a part of the pr's-
ent faculty of the University for the
coming year.
Prof. A. A. Murphree was re-elected
president of the Female College, and
the entire faculty of this college was
also re-ciected. Prof Nathan H. Young
was re-elected principal of the colored
Normal and will name his assistants
The State Board of Education and the
Board of Control met in joint session in
the afternoon. Architect Edwards ap-
peared before the board last night to

tion, comlpoed of the alumnae of the
late State Normal School and the train-
ing class of the kindergarten depart-
ment of the Florida College for Women,
was organized March 12. 1906. The
object of the association is to acquaint
the public with true kindergarten prin-
ciples, their value to the child, the home,
the community and State, and "to in-
duce normal and college graduates to
become trained kindergarten workers "
They have pledged themselves to give
one or more scholarships each year to
said graduates. They have met with
considerable encouragement from those
to whom they have applied for aid, and
they hope to interest still more public
spirited men and women in the move-

Unloaded by us this week. These are substantial Oak Chairs, well finish-
ed, consisting of Diners, Rockers and Bedroom Chairs.

We bought them from the factory and saved the jobbers profit.

We bought a car load and got bottom prices.

We obtained lowest possible freight rate by having carload shipment.

The Chairs were packed in car by the factory and unpacked by us. Not
being handled during transit, the breakage was reduced to the minimum.

Thus, we are able to offer these chairs at a remarkably low price.
