Now, I have never before criticized
this pension law, but look it square in
S the face and tell me, does it not mean
that soldiers and sailors of the Confed-
erat States and their widows who are
paupers may have a pension by making
strict proot of the fact. God bless
your soul, comrade, all civilized States,
i:' nd especially Florida, take care of
Their paupers, regardless of their past
S lives or the country from which they
came. But the last Legislature of Flor-
I" da (may heaven's richest blessings
abide upon them), desiring to show
substantial recognition of the services
and sufferings of the Confederate vet-
erans, passed a law at once doing honor
to our great State and placing the sol-
r diers and sailors of the Confederacy
and their widows upon the roll ot honor
C. and the pedestal of fame.
I have long loved Florida, but never
so much as now. Not for the pension
she offers me, but for the gracious
manner in which she has moulded into
statute law and placed in everlasting
remembrance her love and value of the
l Confederate veterans and their widows.
Comrade Fleming stands in a class
almost, if not entirely, alone. We
made him Governor for four years, and
he has held other lucrative positions;
besides, he is a man of wealth and high
legal attasiments and has a large in-
come. Doubtless he would decline a
gift of a hundred dollars from any
source. Not so that old veteran past
sixty who gave his years of his young
S life to the Confederacy and missed the
; opportunity to get an education; who
at the close of the greatest struggle of
modern times returned ragged and pen-
niless to hie former abiding place, and
who, having reared his family, looks
back upon the years of toil and econ-
omy necessary to educate his children,
and, although his little farm and other
= poessions are valued at mere than

-Mr. Editor, it has been my pleasure
to know Gov. Fleming for forty-five
ears, a gentleman for whom I enter-
an the highest esteem and regard;
. one with whom I soldiered on thq fields
of Virlinia durn the 'o0s; and I can
consistently doeare that a truer,
nobler, braver and more loyal soldier
never drew blade from scabbard; and
for so valiant a soldier as Gov. Fleming
to oppose the bill for the want of a
property qualification ia beyond my lim-
ited comprehension. Let us remember,
Mr. Editor, that thase valiant, patriotic
and intrepid sons at the tap of the
drum, volunteered their services in a
most righteous cau e, rushing to the
front ready to pour their libation upon
the altar of Southern rights; and how
any patriotic citizen can object to the
Legislature giving them more liberal
treatment I am at a loss to understand.
In conclusion, I wish to say that as
chairman ot the Senate pension com-
mittee, both in the committee and on
the floor of the Senate not only was my
vote given, but my voice was heard in
favcq of the passage of the most liberal
pension bill ever given to Confederate
soldiers by any previous Legislature of
Florida, and for roy acts I have no re-
grets to express of apologies to offer,
but proud indeed of my work.
Chairman Senate Pension Committee.
Quincy, Fla., July 10.
Fire at NIccesukle.
News has just reached this office of a
disastrous fire which occurred on the
night of the 6th inst. on the premises
of Dr. W. F. Yarborough.
When discovered the flames were
well advanced, and, in spite ot the he-
roic efforts on the part of all the avail-,
able village force, the building and
three valuable horses, which, with the
usual unreasoning terror shown by
these animals at such times, refused to
be rescued, were destroyed. We are
glad to report, however, that the wag-
ons and corn stored in the barn were
saved and the other outhouses kept
from igniting.
The friends of this well-known physi-
cian and his family sympathize with
them in their severe loss, and also with
the suffering sustained by Dr. Yar-
borough, Mr. Theodore Yarborough and
Mr. Averill from burns received in
fighting the flames.
The Ways and Means.
A committee, composed of the genial
Leon county judge and the True Demo-
crat reporter, went into executive ses-
sion this morning in order to devise
ways and means to increase the number
of marriages among the young peo-
ple of the county. All plans fell
through, however, at least for the pres-
ent, because of the contumacy of the
judge, who refused to subscribe to the
suggestion made by his colleague that,
being himself eligible to matrimony,
he should head the list. The reporter,
disappointed in the expectation of de-
riving a handsome per cent. from the
license fees issued, was naturally dis-
gusted with such ilh-timed reluctance,
and moved an immediate adjournment.
Then the judge, feeling that he had not
acted quite fairly, apologized for the
position he had taken and promised to
take the matter into a more careful
consideration, so that the public may
yet hear of good work having been ac-
complished by the committee.
The total number of licenses issued
since his incumbency, from December
16 1906, was 193 28 white and 165

Editor Collins, of the Tallahassee
True Democrat, has brought that ex-
cellent'paper fully back to its old form
and it a now in the front rank of Flor-
ida weekly journalism. It is tempting
to look at and a dip into its contents
never disappoints the reader. Mr. Col-
sine is goingit solely on the merits of
his paper, and it is impossible not to ad-
mire the sturdy grit and unyielding
purme at the man as he humps him-
self his arduous task week after
week, comelentious in work, fearless in

A private citizen contracting a debt
and when able to do so allowing It to
stand year after year without an effort
to pay it, rightly considered not
worthy of confidence and his credit is
far below par among business men.
What then can we say about the United
States goveseiuant when it has allowed
a debt of honor to remain unpaid for
twenty-five years ? The entire conduct
of President Garfield's funeral was
given into the hands of W. I. and F.
Speare, undertaker of Washington,
D. C., and when their bill was pre-
sented the committee to whom was en-
trusted the settlement of such claims
reported that they thought It excessive
and failed to pay it. Since then, al-
though several efforts have been made
in Congress to bring the matter up and
pay the bill there has been nothing
done. The death of one of the under-
takers causes the matter to be brought
to public notice. Where no specified
sum has been named, under the circum-
stances, it is a national disagree to have
this debt remain unpaid.-Gainesville
True as gospel, and our fair State
stands under a similar cloud, and al-
ways will stand so, until the State ot
Florida settles the now repudiated and
honest Walles' claim. The State em-
ployed him at the cost to himself to
work up and collect that claim on a
promise to pay him 15 per cent. on the
collection, and as the matter now stands
refuses to pay him the commission, and
even goes further and refuses to allow
him to carry his ease into the State's
own courts to settle the one difference
of opinion, as to whether the Governor
had the right to make the contract,
which contract, however, had always

ptvement Board had S eor of
in figuring the pay e m of the
members for twenty-At says. This
bit of information was Msat out with a
great flare of trumpets, Bat it now
turns out that there was no error. Mr.
Buck man, chairman of the committee,
mays that there was no error, and. what
is more, proceeds to prove it, and does
prove it.
The actspf the board may be correct
in every particular. We are sincere in
the hope that this will be the case, but
the friends of Gov. Broyard have acted
in such a manner in the appointment of
this committee au to throw doubt upon
the subject; they have acted for all the
world as if there is something behind
the scenes that they do not wish re-
vealed, and the investigations would
have carried mesah greater weight and
would have been far more effective if
all the members had not been known by
what are designated as "friends of the
administration. "-Ocala Banner.
Better be careful or you will be sum-
moned before that commission to tell
what you know about the doings of the
Internal Improvement Board sinee its
creation, and have Florida's Csar Gov.
ernor ply you with various and divers
questions connected with these matters,
in an effort to make you admit that the
Internal Improvement Board created
by one Legislatmre Is greater than its
creator; that the board has "prece-
dents" for selling lands quietly at cheap
price, and that they ean "sell for
what they please." Editor John Cald-
well had some experemee with the com-
mission and the Governor last week,
but The True Democrat will let him
tell you of it l hls ow way. As for
ourselves, we were questioned by him
s to when we had been before his
board or any member of it seeking to
be informed, ete.; whether we had
known of any cheap sale in the years
before the last two administrations, of
the character of the lands, their loca-
tion, etc., etc., with an insinuation that
we took orders from some one or more
to criticism and oppose his plans and
schemes. That's all in keeping with
him, however, in his manner of "dig-
ging" those Florida newspapers who
do not swallow him and his ideas and
schemes in connection with Internal
Improvement drainage operations and
other official actions, and the world
moves on Just the same. Napoleon B.
Broward, Governor of Florida, seems
tohbe the biggest thing opnnected with
that Investigating Commission just
now, or he was Tuesday, when we were
before it. Strangely enough, the "dear
people" have no profes-onal or other
representative at the meetings of the
commission, but the precious board is
represented at every meeting by its
head and champion, Gov. Broward, who
takes delight in playing lawyer and
cro.-exam ninghe witnesses.

assuredly is not the "most popular,

has had for its Treasurers Hons. Wal-
ter Gwynn, Henry M. L'Engle, Dr. E.
8. Crill, and perhaps others, that were
equally as good as Mr. Knott in every
respect. We do not make this comment
to take from Mr. Kaott one iota of the
credit that is d him, but we cannot
let it pas that he stands higher and
better than those who were good
enough to satisfy all Florida during
their service ina the office he now so
well fills.
And now, after those hard remarks
of last year, the Talahassee True Dem-

the same kind, it may be expected our
Governor will get busy again, but is it
Just the right thing for a Governor to
do, to spend so much of his time galant-
ing around over the State playing cheap
pohties. Would a Governor who wished
to uphold the dignity of his position, do
such things? Did they do it in the days
of Drew, Bloxham, Perry, Fleming or
Mitehlmll? The venerable and much
loved Dr. John L. Crawford always de-
nounced such action, and operny lec-
tured officials who took the time the
people paid officials to serve them-to
use for political purposes, to the neglect
of their official duties. But may b6
some of these officials have clericalhelp

the "boss" can, and, perhaps, that may
even be true in the Executive Depart-

e ail owned body and soul by ti cor-
poations, so says the Governor. .He
thinks a ehameof editors would Im-
prove the Lake Butler Star, and he said
so in hi speech here on the 4th. Per-
haps the Governor is right; at least, he
has a perfect right to his own opinion
and to so express it if he desires. If
Gov. Broward had his wished fulfilled
he would place in every editorial chair
in the State men who would view the
situation through a Broward apy-glams.
He fooled the people when he was elect-
ed to office, and has their intes t at
heart about as much as the Cs& of
Russia. He is a promoter, filibuster
and a giant in his own estimation, but
is really of a very small caliber. Not
content witi the damage done as Gov-
ernor, he has his sights raised for the
United States Senate. There is little
chance of him election, for the voters
are 'on to his curves.' People don't
like to eat bitter apple twice."

The SalU

face after one bottle of White's Cream
Vermifuge, the great worm medicine.
Why not keep that smile on baby's
face? If you keep this medicine on
hand. you will never see anything else
but smiles on his face. Mrs. 8-,
Blackwell, Okla., writes:
"My baby was peevish and fretful.
Would not eat, and I feared he would
die. I used a bottle of White's Cream
Vermifuge, and he has not had a sick

Broome the Nan.
We do not know who w l be the next
Governor of Florida, but we kpow who
should be Governor, and that is a man
of brains; one who does not belong to
any political faction; a man who hai no
friends to reward and no enemies to
punish; a man big enough and patriotic
enough to lose sight of all things save
the good of the State. When We find
out who that man is we are for him.-
Quincy Times. If the Sun is not badly
mistaken, just such a man resides in
the town of Quincy and his name is
James E. "Broome. His course during
the last session of the Legislature was
that of the very man pictured by the
Times, and should he enter the race for
Governor the truth of this assertion
can be easily demonstrated by the Sen-
ate Journal.--Gainesville Sun.
The editor of the Times has not been
in Florida long enough to know who's
who; but we have been here long
enough to learn that Senator James E.
Broome stands 0. K. with his home
people. They look upon him as a man
of the pople, patriotic, fearless and
right, whether his cause be popular or
unpopular; losing sight of self and self.
ish ambition where the interests of the
people are involved.
The Sun evidently thinks the same
way. Then why not nominate the Hon.
James E. Broome for Governor? Has
Pensacola, or Punts Gorda, or any oth-
er place, a better man?

Although our boys were defeated in
both contests, we are proud of them.
There were several rank and rotten
errors made by some of our boys, but
remember, they are only boys, they are
not paid professionals. They have had
S very little time to practice, and then they
did not get to practice together as a
: team.
The knockers are out with their ham-
mers now, and you will hear the anvil
chorus for some time, but "true fans"
bear with the boys awhile. Don't get
discouraged and disgusted because you
saw one of the swiftest amateur teams
in the South, come here, and use our

STher are two classes of people in
Talas- too, knockers and fans.
Which are yo? When you hear the
"anvil choru" ringing, go into them,

If you question it, come in, we'll knock your doubts into smitherenes. We like the trade of
people who feel that money is not made to be squandered, who insist that every penny must do
its work.

petition; but when you compare our qualities and our prices with those offered you elsewhere, we
are benefitted and you gain.
Is it a buggy you are thinking of? Don't wait until you actually need it. Come in and look
over our line. We have them in all varieties and at prices to fit your pocketbook. Some with piano
bodies, others with corning bodies. End spring or side spring gear. With big Comfortable seats
