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.
Dates or Sequential Designation:
Vol. 1, no. 1 (Mar. 3, 1905)-v. 7, no. 52 (Feb. 16, 1912).

segment mmpletely rev ftlm- the
opinion ofmany Ia the mdists who
had gone to theneting thoroughly in
favor of the amendment, but left it con-
vinced that Its pease would be a crime
against the people of Florida. They
saw through the weakness and fallacy
of the Governor's position when viewed
through the clear lenses of truth and
reason which was held before their
eyes. Clark's language was bold, un-
flinching, wonderfully powerful. Every
word echoed with the honest conviction
of the speaker, and therefore carried a
moral weight and momentum which
could not be resisted. He struck at the
root of the question. There was no
flim-flam game. No shuffling about
with "ifs" and butss," with explana-
tions and excuses. He stood on the
broad plane of the peoples' rights and
held in view the dangerous menace to
those rights involved in the amend-
In this connection The Tribune wishes
to call attention to what seems to be
the exceedingly thin and delicatecuticle
that covers the moral anatomy of some
of our Florida statesmen. They are
men standing high in public trust, whose
opinion is looked up to by the people,
and who, undoubtedly, the people may
reasonably turn to for the expression
of an opinion when a grave political is-
sue is before them.
Why is it that Frank Clark is the on-
ly Florida Congressman bold enough
and sufficiently inspired by a feeling of
duty toward his constituents to make a
public attack upon the pet scheme of
the State Administration?
They, more than any other men am
the State, are the best qualified to
know the facts about the drainage
amendment. They are also known to
be opposed to the amendment.
Then why this lack of zeal in the wel-
fare of their State? Is it a truckling
to certain elements in power? Is it
fear of some to hurt their precious
selves ?
Verily, they need some pachydermsa-
tous treatment to cure their exceeding
There are other prominent citizens
in the State who are equally derelict.
Take the lawyers, for instance. Fully
four-fifths of the bar of Tampa are
opposed to the drainage amendment.
They are of a profession whose opinion
would carry the heaviest weight in in-
fluencing the people on such a question.
Yet, almost complete silence from the
fraternity. The press of the city and
of the country has been at their ser-
vice; would gladly have printed their
views. They would have been wel-
comed on the stump by admiring audi-
ences. But no, they have held their
They wonid, apparently, prefer sad-
dling an obnoxious law upon the State
to risking-what? The enmity of the
powers that be 7 What else can be the
cause 7 They have generally been ready
and willing to express opinions upon
the slightest provocation.
In the opinion of the Tribune this is
all wrong, and these extremely senasi-
tive gentlemen have come to a false
conclusion. However much Governor
Broward may be mistaken about the
drainage amendment, he is a man, and
would be the last to resent an honest
expression of opinion by any overt or
unfriendly act.
The opponents of the Drainage Amend-
ment, while confidently relying upon
the intelligence of the voters, neverthe-
less deemed it expedient to make every
effort to so thoroughly inform them
concerning the true intent and meaning,
as well as the inevitable effect, if adopt-
ed, of the measure upon which they

were required to vote, that not a single
one should be deprived of his right to
act with full knowledge in the premi-
ase. Because they wished to do this in
the most effective and intelligent man-
ner, by ending trustworthy informa-
tion concerning the amendment to every
registered voter into the State whose ad-
dress eould be procured, they have been
abused and villfled and held up to pub-
e seoro by the leading advocates of
the amendment. Now that the people
have spoke, apoogie might be ia or-
der but for the fast that their to is
spirits of the drained movement do

Thaalsgiving Proclamation.
Washington, D. C., Oct. 24.-Presi-
dent Roosevelt this morning issued the
annual Thanksgiving proclamation, set-
ting Thursday, November 29, as the
It read as follows:
"The time of year has come when, in
accordance with the wise custom of our
forefathers, it becomes my duty to set
aside a special day for thanksgiving and
praise to the Almighty, because of the
blessings we have received, and the
prayer that these blessings may be
"Yet another year of widespread well-
being has passed Never before in the
history of our nation or in the history
of any other nation has a people enjoy-
ed more unbounded material prosperity
so great that It would arouse in us no
spirit of reckless disregard of our re-
sponsibilities' but rather a sober sense
of our many blessings, and a resolute
purpose, under Providence not to for-
eit them by any action of our own.
"Material well being indeapensable
though it is, can never be anything but
the foundation of true national great-1
ness and happiness If we build noth-
ing upon this foundation, then our na-
tional life would be as meaningless and
empty as a house where only the foun-:
dation had been laid. Upon our mate-
rial well being must be built a super-
structure of individual and national life
lived in accordance with the laws of the
highest morality, or else our prosperity
itself will in the long run turn out a
curse instead of a blessing. We should
both be reverently thankful for what we
have received, and earnestly bent upon
turning it into a means of grace and not
of destruction

Mrs. Davis was a elpmeet In the
true e-e of the word. She entered
with spirit into ae plans-nd ambitions
of her husband. Not only was she
gifted with a remarkably quick intelli-
gence aa a wide and all-embracitng
sympathy, but this native intelligence
ald this wide ympaSthy had been re-

events had taken place in the interim.
In the palm garden, with veterans of
Sthe Confederacy and their wives and
daughters around her, she most have

It was at this last reception that May-
or Capdeville welcomed Mrs. Davis in
the following beautiful words:
"Mrs. Davis-The Joint reunion of
the Ladies' Memorial Association of
Confederate Veterans and the citizens
of this city is held here tonight in honor
of your return to New Orleans after a
prolonged period of absence.
"Ybr birth as a southern lady. your
associations of many years, and the dig-
nity and charms of your character of
themselves make the sweet courtesies
of the occasion not only appropriate,
but truly happy& for all who are able to
partlepate in them.
"There belongs to the event a senti-
ment which is inexpressibly tender be-
cause of your identification with Mr.
Jefferson Davis as the dear partner of
his lot among us. A spotless character
as a gallant and accomplished southern
gentleman, his talent in debates, his
services In the cabinet and in the field.
but especially his leadership of the
southern eaause have given him a place
in history to which no other name can
lay claim and to which homage will ever
be rendered.
"And for your own sake, as well as
for his aecred memory, dvar Mrs. Davis
I bid you, in the name of the city of
New Orleans, cordially and affection-
ately welcome."

The editor of the Confederate Vete-
ran wrote on October 80 to the Gover-
nors of the Cotton States as follows
from Nashville, Tenn.:
"MY DEAR Sin : Pardon the liberty
I take in addressing you. Circumstan-
e*s have caused me to travel, within
less than two weeks, almost entirely
across the Cotton Bolt of the South,
and I have found cotton conditions so
alarming everywhere that I feel im.
pulled to try to sound a warning through
most influential sources and to suggest
the best, if not the only, possible rem-
edy. The immense draft of laborers
from the farms by improvements In
cities and the building of steam and
electric railways, together with the
prlongeed rainy weather, have delayed
picking of cotton so that it seems
impossible to save it except by united
"The particular suggestion that I de-
aire to make is the suspension of public
and private schools for several weeks,
and hat all school children be urged to
help save the cotton with which the
South is so greatly blessed. Urge
farmers to pay the highest prices, and
ppe to parents of wealth as a patri-
duty to Induce their children to
help save the cotton. It is a condition
as ieriousiy threatening as if our eities
