&. Because the drainage commissios-
ere are not required to make any easti-
mate of the coat of the work before
they levy the toaw.
This is altogether unjust and unfair.
In levying another county and State
taxes, an estimate is always first made
to aee how much money it will be nee-
earto raise by taxation. Anybody
who builds a house or starts a buaineess
of any kind always wants to know
what It will cost before he goes into
the scheme. If your farm or your wild
land is to be taxed 10 eenta per acre
annually for anage without any limit
of time, won't you like to know
what the drainage will cost, so that
o know for now many years you will
ve to pay the tax?
6. Because the amendment makes no
provision for local option.
The people of the draae districts
are not to be consulted at all. They
are expected to put up the cash for
some wildcat drainage scheme, but they
are not allowed to say a word about it.
Why should OWy net be invited to vote
upon It? W have local option for liq-

The constitutional amendment will make
it absolutely useless. This Is not an
imaginary case. In the Everglades
drainage district there are thousands fo
acres of high sand hills which have to
pa this drainage tax.
I Because wherever a drainage dis-
trict Is formed, it will prevent the salo
of lands and obstruct the development
of the country.
You can't sell lands when they are
being taxed ten cents an acre for an
indefinite time No one will buy lands
which are subject to an annual tax of
ten cents an acre to drain somebody
else's land. No investor will put his
money in lands that have to pay such
a tax, when no one knows what will be
done with the taxes, or wfiether it will
not be wasted in impractical schemes
and posibly worse. Would you want
to buy lands burdened with such a tax?
No; aW nobody else would. As a re-
sult, the development of the State will
be stopped, and all kinds of property
win loose value. Can't you see that
this is inevitable if the Amendment is

Reasons why you should vote against
the amendment:
L because no reclamation of the
Everglades should be attempted until
proper surveys have been made.
No complete survey of the Ever-
glade baa ever been made. Negotia-
iosare now pending with Secretary
Wilo to get help from the United
States Government for a complete aur-

re4 Wilson admits the necessity for
a survey before any drainage can be
done and promises the State his assist-

of the contemplated drainage have yet

ow of amy estimate. The drainage

dertaken without any previous esti-
mate of the coast being first made?
The Disaton engineers knew more about
the Everglades than any one, and they
estimated the cost of properly reclaim-
ing the big saw-grass south of Lake
Okeechobee (only one-sixth of the
Everglades) at nine million dollars
8. Because the title to the Everglades
is now in litigation.
Nominally the title reatas in the Trus-
tees of the Internal Improvement FWnd
and therefore belong to the pe of
Florida but this title is now at-
tacked n the United States Cour by
various legislative grant claimants.
Until these oases are finally decided,
the ownership of the Everglades mast
remain in doubt. It will be some years
before this question can be etttled.
Meanwhile the Trustees cannot giv, a
good title to an acre uf the Evergade
losing every dollar y a rain
age. TNey have no to r the
people'a mney before e title ia aset-
tied. Would a careful man In his own
business wasto money like water on a

pensive houem on land a a

"ommissloiers hav made no estimate,
and they can't make any estimates be-
"Ulm t~hey haven't ay complete sur-
vey. If they could make an estimate
of the total coast, the tax-payer would
be able to figure out just how much his
total tax will be, and for how many
years he will have to pay It. Aa it is,
he is in the dark. The oonsequence is
tuat lands in the Everglades drainage
district cannot be bought or sold .No
one want to buy with this blanket tax
hanging over the land, because there is
no limit to it.
6. Because the greater part of the
Everglades is not worth draining.
More than half of the Everadesa is
rock, and worthless for agriculture.
The part worth reclaiming is a strip
along the Last Coast, and the big saw-
Iraw south of Lake Okeechobee. The
all of 21 feet from the lake to the
ocean is not a gradual fall evenly disa-
tributed the whole distance. Within
14 miles of the lake there is a fall of
12 feet leaving only 9 feet for the bal-
ance o0 the way, a distance of 76 miles
aouth to the Gulf of Mexico. Only 9
feet in 76 miles. The lower part of
the Southern Glades is washed by sea

The drained muck lands of the Kissim-
dss Valley were badly damaged by fire
some year ago in a dry time, and thous-
ands of acres were deetroyed by fire.
These lands are now used entirely for
grasping and are worth about $1. per
acre, Today there are not 60 acres un-
der cultivation between Orlando and
Lake Okeehobee.
7. Because nodiscrimination has been
shown by the drainage commissioners
in levyingt the drainage tax.
Land of different classes, high or
low, dry or wet, good or bad, were all
assessed the same blanket acreage tax,
no mAtter what distance from the Ever-
glades, or how much or how little they
would be benefited by drainage. The
high sand-Mlls of Avon Park, covering
hundreds of square miles, were taxed
exactly the same au the marshes bor-
dering Lake Okeechobee.

A Few NMere Words Aboast the To-
hace oe6stlea.
Another year will realise great re-
forms in the deveolpment of Leon
county. From a careful canvass it is
learned that many land owners are to
plant tobacco within the next year, and
with this in view, and the fact that
there will elso be a warehouse built so
as to handle all the tobacco that is
raised, there Is a great inducement to
parties contemplating tobacco growing,
and it gives a strong assurance that It
can be taken care of In our own county.
Leon county contains a vast amount
of soil to produce excellent tobacco
leaf; all that has been needed was some
one who could bring out the productive
qualities in a esavincing muanes-tinee

been undergone in a short space of
time. The people are at last coming
to a realist of the fact that there s
wealth in old eon.
Beesdes the Leon County Tobacco Co.
and Messrs. Johnson and MeDermit,
two companies that have been recently
organized In Leon county, the following
named parties are arranging to plant
toba co, and most of them are already
starting to shade the lands:
Mesrs. Miekler & Perkins will com-
mence with i aeres of shades. Mr.
D. B. Megnaliss propose to plant five
eresof shade, and will go to s aa pen-
diture of 11,0 to make the neseeary
preparations. A well known tobacco
man from Queacy, whose name is with-
held, will manage the plantation.
Hon. J. W. Handerson will plant the
rst year 10 aeres of shade. Mr. Julius
Hirsehberg, manager of the El Provedo

State Fair Netes.
So great has been the demand for ex-
hibit space at the Florida State Fair, to
be held at Tamps, November 14 to 29,
that the erection of several new build-
ings has been found to be necessary,
and practically every building now
standing on the grounds will have to
be enlarged and extended. The capac-
ity for live stock and poultry will have
to be more than doubled, and the same
is the case in almost every department
of exhibition. It is now more than ever
evideit that that Fair will be a much
grander succe s than that of last year,
which eclipsed any fair ever held in the
South before. ech mail also makes It
evident that the attendance of home-
seekers from other States is going to be
double that of last year and active
preparations are now under way for
accommodating the crowds.
One of the most brilliant and memo-
rable special days of the coming State
Fair will be 'Veterans' Day," for
which November 22 has been designa-
ted. On this occasion the Third Flor-
ida Brigade, with ione of Veterans and
Daughters of the Confederacy, will
hold their annual reunion, which has for
several years proved so enjoyable and
succe oful. At the eame time the
Grand Army Veterans of Florida will
meet, and the "Yanks" and "Old Con-
feds" will march through the streets of
the city, arm in arm, together, making
a scene beautiful to look upon. In
short, the Confederate reunion will be
in the nature of a "Blue and Grey"
In addition to the many magnificent
attractions secured by President Brown
for the Florida State fair-including
the famous White City hlppodroe,
which will cost 0, 000 far two weeks-
John L Sullivan, the greatest pogilst
that ever lived, will be aog the num-
ber. Sullivan, who woa the dMol of the
peie ring for thirty years, will appear
in a three-round sparring match and
hi sparring partner, Barry will at
each performance agree to throw any
four men in the audl ene in fifteen min-
utes. Sullivan will also give a lecture
on the art of self-defene, and moving
picture of the irttest fights in ring
history will be shown. Sulwvan is draw
Ing thousands en Texas at mpr snt, in-
cluding many women and children.
There will be nothing In th least of-
fensive about the perfwaormane, which
will rove a fine drawing card.
A feature of the ooa mn State fair at
ampa, that will be rivaled toin mag-
niaience, will be a grand horse show,
at which the finest saddle and harness
horses in Florida will opete for large
pr offered in addition to tha o-
ered on live stock in the ocial pre-
mium list. The horse show will occur
on the afternoons of November 16 and
17. There will be ten event five be-
Ing Judged each aftemoon. Many Il-
dise and gentlemen ownm finehorss

of entering their animals, which they

Here Assertlea-Me PreeFC
No man who does not own these
overflowed lands in the drainage dis-
trict can be legally taxed for draining
the Everglades.-Madison Paper.
The above bald assertion In various
forms is now appearing in all the drain-
age organs. The Fort Myer ePrees
for Instance alleges that the people o
Duval., Hillborough, Escambia and
other "counties and the State are not
asked to pay the (drainage) tax and
never will be, under the proposed con-
stitntional amendment."
Surely, these usually bright and in-
tellient newspaper men have never
studied the proposed amendment, or
else they are deceiving themselves and
their readers. The Herald has repeat-
edly stated as one ground of its opposi-
tion that if the proposed amendment
carries, the drainage board will have
the power to locate and establish a
drainage district anywhere in the State
where swamp or overflowed land may
be found anid apply the taxes there-
from to the drainage of the Everglades.
In proof of this, we point to the amend-
ment published on the fourth page
of this paper and in the Fort M f-
ere Press, and we challenge any one to
refute the argument made.
The board will certainly have the
power, and what guarantee have we
that it will not be exercised, if the
need should arise for more money than
the Everglades taxes yieldl
Unlike the Fort Myers Press, The
Herald does not demand that the inter-
eata of the whole State should be jeop-
ardised and the rights and wishes of
the people Ignored merely for the bene-
fit of to Gords and its tributary
terrtory. For the protection of the
Caloo htohe fields and groves, the
Press demands that we give five men
unrestricted power to tax people indis-
criminately and perpetually throughout
the whole State, five men who are to
collect and disburse annually several
hundred thousand dollars and give no
bond for the faithful and honest dis-
charge of their duties and make no re-
port or accounting to the legislature or
any other power or authority.
Here we come to the claim of the St.
Petersburg dependent that this drain-
age board will be heedged about by law
and reqialred to give bon and a ke re-
ports o its deoia. In support of this
contention, which in the face of the
actual verbiage of the amendment, is
supremely preposterous the Indspend-
nt quotes the now existing constitu.
tutional provisions governing the of-
eisa" of the Bxeetive department
The veriest tyro should know thatthis
drainage board as seh wU not be any
rt I or branch of the E eeative
adn consequeeatly e anot
come under the provisiam retain to
that dpartaemont.
The drainage board, If established

under this proposed amendment, will be
a separate, dtinct and independent
government of itself, wholly outside of
geo vdernmnt, and re-
striced and controlled only by the
terms of the proposed amendment it-
Now, if our Journalistic friends and
opponents, before undertaking to deny
these contentions, will only submit to
any upright and able lawyer this ar-
ticle, together with the proposed
amendment, the State oonstitutiog* and
their own answers thereto, be will save
them from publishing some abeurdtlUe
that may deceive and mislead their
readers. We are all in busiaeas not
solely for money, but for the satisfac-
tion of being able to advise the people
correctly as to their beet interests and
to guard them against the dangers of
vicious or unwise legislation.
Neither self-interest nor false pride
nor the fear of being misunderstood
and maligned and charged with im-
proper motives, should deter us from a
conscientious effort to lead the people
aright. We are sure that the Fort
Myers Press, the St. Petersburg Inde-
pendent, and, in fact, all the best news-
papers of Florida, are inspired by this
motive-to teach and preach and prac-
tice what is right.- Punt Gorda Her-
Craig4 Geedbedy.

in two instances, outside siek trick.
sters did get two office holders Into
some trouble. In one case, that of the
State Treasurer, facts have proven
that he did not benefit by it in the
least, and that he did not know what
he was led into until the awful truth
was brought home to him. Do not all
Floridtans remember what slick poliUti-
@al friends onee did for the Ron. C. B.
Collins, State Treasurer for Florida,
and what the slick trick, besides ruin-
ing a good man, but one who trusted
his supposed friends to lead to, in a
great lose to Florida. Does not that
past history stare Floridians in the
face as to what scheming scoundrels
can do when they set out to have
things go as they please ? In those
days, and now, most people believed
that having olficils bonded made
everything secure. Yet scheming triek-
stars got the State's money and a good
State officer and a Christian gentle-
man was ruined and crushed.
Again, while it was never made pub-
lie, a Commissioner of Agriculture, Dr.
Mitchell, through some influenes and
power, got mixed up and short in pub-
lic land matters and moneys to a large
extent, and to prevent a big scandal
and showing up much wrong-doing, his
brother, then Judge of the Supreme
Court and afterwards Governor, had It
to settle, and a number of brother cabi-
net officers and several clerks in the
capitol were heavy losers by loaning
Dr. M. money, which his brother re-
fused to make good. Both these ex-
officials are dead, and True Democrat
does not wish to go into these matters
their full depth. We only wish to
show that such things have happened,
and can happen again, Governor Brow-
ard and his gang's claims to the con-
trary, notwithstanding. We have no
desire to dig up these old affairs-just
simply mention them that the people
of Florida may wake up to the fact
that even if Nopoleon Bonaparte
Broward tells he and his angels can do
no harm, that there is a possible and
big chance that they can, and when
they sacrifice the time the people are
paying them to stay in their offices to
look after public business, so anxious

*Isees -t Florida to pus p"O, in
a-o yeamr, Fham the pr pus drain-
age amadamemt to the Coutitutoa
-It 6 of aso mus importamee that it
shalod et be omtidered from th
staadpolut of factional politics, o
how it may effect te politic status
of any ofWal or individual, but only
thai of interest to the people of the
State. Without other interest than
love of my native state and her people
who have bestowed npon me high hon-
ors, I have thought it proper to give
some brief expression of my views on
the subject.
I am opposed to the amendment for
the following reasons :
1. 1 do not think that the Everglades
can be drained so as to become avail-
able for cultivation without the expen-
ditere of a larger sum of money than it
is practicable for the state to raise
without the serious oppression of a
large number of her eitisens.
2. It is not the part of wisdom to
spend money on drainage while the
very lands sought to be drained are in
litigation, claimed by various compl-
anies under legislative land grants.
Many lawyers are of the opinion that
by vesting the legal title of the swamp
lands in the Internal Improvement
Board, the legislature did not divest
itself of the power of further controll-
ing the disposition of the lands.
Whether or not this opinion is sound,
it is better to suspend operations until
the courts have finally decided.
3. The proposed amendment would
S -4mibne in five individuals the legisla-
tive powers of levying taxes, the exec-
utive powers of carrying on drainage
operations and expending the mon-
ies raised by taxation, and the quasi
judicial powers of determining what
lands they will class a alluvial or
swamp and overflowed. This is con-
trary to the principles of republican
form government, which is careful to
keep those three departments separate
and distinct.
4. The powers vested in the drainage
commissioners are without those limi-
tations which are necessary for safety.
The uncontrolled handling of vast sums
of money which w uld go into their
hands might develop a political ma-
chine of proportions greatly to the in-
jury of our people, without questioning
the integrity of the present board, we
cannot know who will be their succes-
sors or fill their places in after years.
5. The taxation feature would abro-
gate to that extent the clause of the
constitution, as it now exists, requiring
"a uniform and equal rateof taxation."
By the proposed amendment the board
of drainage commissioners "are author-
ized and empowered to establish drain-
age districts and fix the boundaries
thereof * * to prepare a list
or lists of all the alluvial or swamp and
overflowed lands within such drainage
districts and levy thereon a acreage tax
not exceeding ten cents per acre, to be
fixed annually." It is made the duty
of the respective collectors to collect
sn tax. There is no limit to the con-
tinuation of such annual assessments,
nor is there any restriction to the ex-
tent of the drainage district. The
lands to be taxed may be ten, fifty or a
hundred miles from the lands drained,
they may not be benefitted in the slight-
est by the drainage operations, or the
owner might not want his loads dramedt,
yet if they lie within the drainage die.
trict and are listed for ta.atils by the
commissioners, he mut pay the ta as
long as it is asseaed o Ari his loads
to be confiScated. If mo's a oa were
listed for drainage t ens that se
not in fact alluvial, wialIp r over-
flowed (which I am infi Ied aI be'm
done in some caes), it is very doubtful
whether the owner would have any re-
liefs against such action of the com-
missioners. The taxationm is not accord-
lg to vats. A, who may own 00
eesae of nd worth 100.00 has to pay

the sIme tax that B pays on 500 acres
of load worth .6,00.00, if both tracts

for ratification or rejection.

troller, the State Treasurer, the Attor-
ney- General and the Commissioner of
Agriculture of the State of Florida,
and their successors in office, are here-
by constituted and designated as a
Board of Drainage Commissioners, and

in any portion of the state a constitu-
tional amendment which will impose
upon them such unequal and oppressive
taxation. Nor, from a selfish view,
can they know when a drainage district
will be laid off which will include their
land. If we make an innovation of the
present constitutional limitation for the
purpose of drainage, what will be the
next scheme to draw us away from the
safe rule of uniform and equal taxa-
6. The power of eminent domain
which is bestowed upon the commis-
sioners, without the previous payment
to the owner of the value of his land
taken, is an unwise innovation of the
law of eminent domain as it now exists.
I trust that every voter will give the
subject that careful investigation and
consideration which its importance de-
mands, and cast his ballot as he hon-
estly believes is for the interest of

The general plan of the work follows
the revision of 1892. That it may be
easy for the lawyers of the State to fa-
miliarize themselves with the new
book, the sections of the Revised Stat-
utes of 1892 are given in parentheses im-
mediately following the section number
of the new book, the original act being
noted on the margin. All acts subse-
quent to the revision of 1892 are noted
on the margin of each page. Sections
which have been consolidated or in any-
wise revised are so noted on the mar-
gin, and any new matter inserted by
the Revision Commission (adopted by
the Legislature of 1906) has no refer-
ence to any act of the Legislature.
This will make it easy for the bar to
see what new matter has been inserted.
(There is very little of this.)
"The book contains all the laws of
the State which are in force and the
new book will take effect thirty days
after the Governor's proclamation, so
that hereafter the laws cited in the
court will be from the General Statutes,
instead of the Revised Statutes, the
name being changed to prevent confu-
sion. Six thousand copies have been
printed-3,000 unbound and 3,000 bound.
The bound volumes (full law sheep) are
to be valued at $6 each and the unbound
at $3.60 each. They can be had of the
Secretary of State, at Tallahassee only.
The entire publication is to be delivered
to the State, and no other copies can
be had."
For the information of the public, it
may be stated that the entire edition
will be forwarded to Tallahassee early
in November. The Governor's procla-
mation is being printed, and will be
made an insert in each volume. It is
expected that the first delivery will be
made in Tallahassee before the first of
1UitWrlal Dictatlo
Is a clause that means nothing-abso-
lutely nothing-yet it is one that is
sometimes heard. A case in point
was brought to our notice a few days
ago. The Democrat is charged with
"trying to dictate to the people how
they shall vote."
We deny the charge.
We have not, and have never had,
any such thought.
If we had the power to dictate we
would lack the desire.
A man's vote is his own-his to use
for the public good.
The man who would undermine that
right is an enemy to goud government
and to honesty in public works.

We also believe that a newspaper has
a work-a work whichh it should do well.
When there Is before the people a
question demanding their consideration,
an issue to be settled by public for the
public good, a principal, any subject in

The better element of the colored
people of the South favor law and or.
der, and if they in every community
will come together as they have re-
cently done in Alabama, much can be
done by them In helping to right many
wrongs. Read the following:
Montgomery, Oct. 27.-Neroes of
Alabama, headed by Booker T. Wash-
ington at Negro day at the Alabama
agricultural fair, adopted resolutions
endorsing the organisation of law and
order leagues throughout the State to
suppress crime among members of their
race. The resolutions were adopted
after a stirring speech byGov. William
D. Jelks and Booker T. Washington.
Governor Jelks said that the races
are living under conditions now that
cannot last. The conditions must bet-
ter or the raes must separate. He ad-
vised the negroes to treat the members
of their race, who have no regard for
law, as outcasts from their race, and in
the meantime inculcate in the coming
generations the ideas of good citizen-
ship, thrift, cleanliness and industry.

Mr. Carter admonished the voters to
follow the example set in New York
State, but he forrot to tell them that
the constitution of New York State was
not amended for the purpose of creat-
ing such a board as our proposed amend-
ment create. The improvements were
made by direct legislation. That's the
way it should be here.-Sumter Times
Mr. Carter also probably failed to
mention that. In spite of proper legis-
lative safeguards provided by the New
Yorkers (none of which are provided ir
our proposed amendment), the expendi-
tures so far exceeded the estimates,
and official corruption and graft were
so plainly evident, that a scandal which
smelled to the skie resulted and sus.-
pended over the Republican party of
that State such a cloud that the leaders
not only sidetracked and frowned on
Governor Black's aspirations for re-
nomination, but refused to permit his
name to be even mentioned in their
State convention. In New York Black
was the scapegoat; I Florida-who?
