doubted the right ot a State to seeode

decided adversely by the a et of

The doing of some public-spirit.dl .act
is an eminently graceful means by which
our colored people of Leon might com-
memorate the anniversaryof their race.
Monuments of their enterprise and
genius are none too prominent in a land
where for well nigh half a century they
have enjoyed the ;advantages andvlopor.
tunities of freedom.
Should they see tit to dedicate Mon-
day, the 20th day of May, 1907-the47th
annual return of the occasion of African
liberty in America. to the planting of
pecan nuts on their own lands and lots
and along margins of public roads and
streets, they would surely effect results
alike honorable to their race purpose
and contributive to public adornment
and benefit. They might thus estab-
lisah an imperishable monument of their
patriotic endeavor that would remain a
matter of pride with their children for
many generations. "SHADE Tait."

The dispositio of the Farris bill,
looking to the abolishment of the Board
of Trustees and the winding up of the
trust In the courts. naturally depends
upon the report of the investigating
committee. Unless the investigation
is completed at this session aad in time,
the Legislature cannot intelligently set
upon that very important measure.
The shameful treatment which the
committee has received would natuaally
impel its members to abandon their
task in disgust -and this, perhaps, was
the purpose of such treatment-but
they have very wisely sad very proper.
ly put the whole matter up to the Leg.
islature, which body, as the repromet-
atives of the people, Isoet decide what
shall be done. If the Legislature does
not want the investigation perfected,
after ordering it to be made aad pro.
viding for a part of the expse, the
committee will be instructed to wind
up its work, less than half finished, and
will then be discharged from further
duty in the premises, thus turning the
whole matter into a disgraceful farce.
If, on the other hand, the Legislature
desires to have properly completed the
task which it set for the committee to
perform, the order may be for the
committee to be extended fof asuffi.

Florida has had some that come
very*nea', if not quite up, to your high
standard, and two of them are yet liv-

The True Democrat believes others
could be furnished. We believe Hon.
Fred. T. Myers, of this city, or Dr. E.
8. Crill, would come near what is sorely
needed in Florida at this time. We are
sure they would carry dignity to the
Governor's office, and no Floridian
could or would doubt that either of
them is "educated sufficiently to use
the English language correctly and ad-
dress himself intelligently to all public
quations of State, etc." They have
the "experience and moral character
and uprighthess in person and ideals,"
and no influence in the world could in-
duce either of them to do a low or un-
clean thing for political victory. Now,
let Florida select one of the character
you mention in the list above. Florida

used only for purposess of resl e
and drainage" or whether, thehe
er sense,they had been given to the
State by the general government for
"purposes of internal improvement."
At that time the "internal improve-
ment" whereof the State stood moet
urgently in need was a system of rally
roads-there-were then thirty miles of
railroad in operation in the State. Af-
ter careful examination of the law, the
board decided that the State held the
lands in fee as a gift and coud usethem
absolutely for development and im-
provement, a view which the Supreme
Court of the United States confirmed in
cases brought from other states. Out
of this view the modern Florida as
we know it was born.
The first step was to clear off the
debts and that was done by the Disston
sale which was barely in time to save
the bequest from the hammer of the
Federal Court's auctioneer, the sale
having been already decreed. Next
came the policy of bringing capital to
the State by donations of this land
which the State could not sell, could
not tax and could not settle, a policy
which has put every farm and garden
of the state within reach of a shipping
The attempt to reverse this policy,
the claim that the deeds to the lands
given by the Board with the sanction
and at the order of the Legislature,
were void; the effort to sell them at
private sale to favored parties and de-
vote the proceeds to an impossible and
impracticable effort at drainage lands
not needed under the plea of "saving
them for the people," aroused a pub-
lic feeling which finds expression in the
Farris bill.
Whether the bill becomes a law or
not, there must now be some settle-
ment of the questions brought into liti-
gation. Should the Legislature fail to
act the holders of these lands will be
forced to ask confirmation of their ti-
ties from the Federal Courts and the
State be at the cost of endless litiga-
tion. Having decided that the State
had the right to dispose of the lands as
it has done, the Supreme Court must
finally hold that the titles given are
valid, but afterwards will come the dif-
ficulties as to which of the claimants
holds a prior title and which of these is
the owner where the grants overlap
each other; finally the question as to
what the State must pay in damages to
those gratees for whom no land will
remain in the last division.
Undoubtedly the State has failed to
draw exact lines in eliminating its
grants-this was necessarily so when
the surveys lacked both care and agree-
ment among themoeleves; it isalsotrue
that the land were valued by the gran-
tees less for themselves than for the
foundation of credit in the money cen-
ters of this country and Europe. It is "
best that these questions be settled
now. before the lands grow enormously
in value and pass into the hands of third
parties-it is well also to remove their
care from theim hands of a Board which
denies the act of its predecesors and
claims the right to dispose of them by
methods plainly unfair and indicative
of a desire to give special favors. To
escape litigation the holders of great
bddles of land will now concede much
and may agree among themselves so aas
to inflict a minimum of loss on the
State, when a delay and further divis-
ion could easily make the final decision
more difmcult.

At the residence of the brid's parents
Sunday, April 27 at 8:46 p.m.,was wit-
Sth prettiest wedding that ever
took place in that part of Leon county.
The cwtr-_etl_ parties were Mr. A.
B. Nemn of Bonifay, 'Holmes county,
a ind M Annie Hartsfleld of Leon.
ne attful lowers adorned the parlors,
Rwble Meas Jonas and Julius Harts-
ield' acted as groomsmen and Miss
Beesie Atkinson and Miss Maggie Nel-
son w ere bridesmaids. Rev. E. W.
Russell conducted the impressive cere-
mony that made them man and wife.
S There were about one hundred rela-
S tives and friends to witness the mar-
riage. After congratulations by their
many friends, Miss Maggie Nelson act-
ed as organist*and a choir sung several
songs. At five o'clock refreshments
-were served and all were cordially in-
vited to the dining room where a large
table was full of good things.
The groom is a refined young man
and has been a very successful teacher
in the rural schools of Holmes county
for several years and is also a minister
of the Freewill Baptist ehuren, while
the bride ia one of old Leon's fairest
maids. She is the daughter of Repre-
sentative Hon. Gilbert Hartafleld, This
neighborhood hates very much to give
her up. She joined the Aenon Baptist
church while very young and has been
very active in Christian work, she was
also the organist and took great inter-
S at in Sunday school work, being a
Teacher and treasurer.
They will remain until Tuesday with
her parents, after which they will leave
for Bonifay, their future home, where
friends and relatives will await them.
This neighborhood wishes them a long
and happy life. W. E. GRAY.
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
r Diarhea Remeody.
There is probably no medicine made
that is relied upon with more implicit
confidence than Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. Dur-
ing the third of a century in which it
has been in use, people have learned
that it is one remedy that never fails.
When reduced with water and
sweetned it is pleasant to take. For sale

Representative Dorman, of Suwan-

the Legislature to amend the Constitu-
tion to provide for the removal of the
State Capital to Live Oak. It is not
likely that the movement will be taken
seriously even by its projector. Talla-
hansee will retain thecapital for a long
time to come, and when it ia moved, if
ever, there will be more contestants
for the honor than Live Oak.--Lake.

An alarm of fire Monday afternoon
drew out the fire company and the usual
crowd to the residence of Mr. Claude
L'lngle, on North Monroe street. By
some unknown mean, presumably a
combination of mice and-matches, fire
had started in the basement among
some furniture stored there, and was
making considerable headway when it
was discovered by some one passing by.
Beyond the destruction of some old and
valuable furniture, there was little
damage dona.
We have on hand a large stock of fine
kiln-dried 4-inch flooring and ceiling;
also 8 and 10 inch finished boards. The

There's Just This About It:

o M n o ^ Earth Can do more than offer to re-
No Man on Earth place any defective part of the
vehicle he has sold you if its guaranteed. But there are very
few men who will back their vehicles with a guarantee because
they know the materials and workmanship are a "bit shy" in
quality. You :want to dodge such goods or you lose out- the
dealer dosent. -

Yo W on't Find y "hedging" in our place-We
You Won 'I F ind Know ur Buggies and Wag-
ons. Only manufacturers of the best vehicles made can get us to
carry their goods- and we're willing to pass the good work to you
Withkb a Gurant, Too

We Can Afford to do this because
we're seldom called upon to replace
defective parts.

Now Honestly, Don't, YOU Think Your Next, Order Ought to Go to the


Word Standard.
