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.

'Compae, whmo for several yees has
beem engaged in the work o epe lng
a waterwy from the eth of the t.
Jo. river to bay, under a
charter which raMtad waimp Md over-
Sowed lend eorrespondag with ites om-
pleted distammo, and amounting, when
the work should be completed, to some-
thing like one million aeres; of which
amount, o6,7s acres had been eon*
veyed to the company, for distance
completed, previous to the beginning
of the Jennings administration. In
acondance with it peculiar "policy,"
the Jennings I. I. Board refused to
convey other lands, claimed as earned
by the company under Its charter.
Beside* this refusl, when in 1906 the
Legislture enacted a law extending
the life of the company's land grant,
Governor Broward vetoed the bill; so
that, at this time, the company's land
grant, having expired by limitation, is
no longer In force. Notwithstanding
this fact, under the announced condi-
tions of this sale, the board has not
only sold lands to a corporation In
direct e.oflict with its boasted' 'policy,"I
but it has assumed legislative powers,
and undertaken to revive the company's
expired grant, by agreeing to extend
the same for five years beyond the
date of expiration; and has also con-
tracted to convey an additional 284,000
aeres, conditioned upon the completion
of the canal, thus deliberately repudi-
ating the Jennings pet theory, that
legislative grants of land to railroad
and canal companies have no value
which the board is bound to recognize.
It is not, perhaps, surprising that the
Governor and his board should, In order
to defy the people of Florida who have
voted to order a halt In his drainage
scheme until the legitimate action of
the Legislature can be Invoked, sell
the people's land at aerificee prices;
but that the board, In order to uphold
the Governor in his defiance of the peo-
ple, should stultify itself by a deliber-
ate repudiation of a "policy" which
was claimed as the chief glory of the
Jennings administration, is somewhat
The official attitude of Governor
Broward In the premises Is still more
remarkable. Whether, or not, this
hold-up of the canal company was de-
liberately planned in advance, the fact
remains that It was the Governor's
little veto which made Its execution
possible. The alleged reasons for the
making of the present deal with the
canal company-the completion of a
great and necessary public work-are
in direct and Irreconcilable conflict with
theo action and reasoning of the Gov-
ernor In destroying the land grant, and
making Impossible, so far a he was
able to do so, the completion of this
great work, for the continuance and
completion of which the board now
takes to itself so much credit.
Although neither the Governor nor
the board posses the constitutional
power which they have usurped, of un-
doing the work of destruetlon wrought
by his veto last year, it ie not at all
unlikely that the Legislature will con-
firm the effort by legal and lawful
action; but the sle to the canal com-
pany of lands which were already
claImed by it as having been earned

There wro among those who ought
the appointment, Mr. Howard Gsable,
whowae a candidate before the pri-
maries about two years ago, and who
received a very few votes less than
'Judge WhItfeld, and who preiiated
with his applietion for the appoint-
ment the endorsement of almost the
solid County Democratic Executive
Committee, all the county offiials, a
majority of the bar, and a large and
strong petition of the citisns of the
county, safely etimatod at 96 per cent.
of the whole county.
Mr. Robert W. Williams. one of Tal-
lahassee's brightest, most worthy and
highly thought of young attorneys, who
has been practicing law before the
courts for several years, aiso backed
by friends and some Influential attor-
neys, who sought the appointment for
him, was among the earliet applicants.
The True Democrat will not assail
the Governor and his advisers for disre-
Tarding the wishes of so large a per-
centage of the citizenship. We will
simply say Governor Broward in his
action in this appointment has carried
out his own and his predecessor's plan
and ways of dealing with Floridians in
regard to making appoiespntments. We
leave the matter thus with the citizens
of Leon to form their own opinions of
him and them in the premstes.
The death of Hon. N. R. Carter, of
Levy county, makes a vacancy in the
State Senateof which he was an hon-
ored member, and this will have to be
filled by a special election. Nowitmay
be none of our business, but as a Sena-
tor may do good or evil for the whole
State, and as we have absolute confi-
only good, we nominate Brother Farmer
of the Bronson-Times Democrat, and if
all the press of the State don't second

Rise up brothers, to the man, and lets

this, too, without knowing Just how

ada mforthe position
a hd meeivarge vote forsa"d
office at the Democratic primary held in
190. *
I alo lad before Governor Broward
a petition signed by large majority of
our local ba, inludin our District At-
torey, recommending and endorsing
my a tpontment.
Salo laid before Governor Browsad
a petto igned by all our eoaty off-
iae nd a large number of of ur met
influential eitisen from all artAof the
county, and representing alnoat every
precinct in the county, recommending
my appointment.
I had the p emonal endorsement of
State Senator, Hons. John W. Hender-
so, and of both Leon's Representatives
in the next Asaembly, Hon. Gilbert
Hartsfleld and A. Well.
Theae gentlemen personally urged on
the Governor for he consIderadon my
Btaess for the position and the fact
that my appointment would be popular,
inasmuch as I was the choice of 96 per
cent of the Democrats of -the county.
Numerous citizens personally urged my
appointment on the Governor as being
not only fit and proper under the cir-
cumstances, but alo that I was the
popular choice. The magnificent en-
dorsement I received at the polls, when
a change of less than twenty-five votes
would have given me a majority over
the successful candidate, was called to
the Goverpor's attention and urged as
a valid reason for my appointment
But in spite of such an endorsement;
in spite of the acknowledged fact that
I am almost the unanimous choice of
the Democrats of Leon county; in spite
of the-fact that Governor Broward told
me that he considered that the appoint-
ment should be made so as to carry
out the wishes of the people rather
than from personal reasons, I did not
receive the appointment.
In view of the splendid endorsement
I have received, as shown above, for
which I am profoundly grateful, I take
this occasion, Mr. Editor, to announce
myself a candidate for the position of
Probate Judge at the next primary
election, and ask my friends for their
support at said primary.

The King brothers, of Cotton, Ga., and

the past week. They killed more ducks

Speaking of fishing, though, the
Coachman-Cay party had the finest luck
last week. It was a cloudy day and a
