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.

The reath of Charles E. Worth leaves
a vacancy in the office of Tax Collector
of Hillaborough county. The present
term of Tax collector will expire the
beginning of January, and Governor
Broward has the privilege of appoint-
ing a successor to Mr. Worth, who may
hold office until the new term comrn-
mences, but only until then. It is now
the duty of the Governor to call a spe-
tial election in this county to choose a
collector for the two years commenc-
ing the first of January, and this should
be done at once, for the new year is
nearly upon us.
It f presumed that Mr. McFall will
be chosen by the Governor to fill the
interregnum in the office between the
present time and the date when the
new officer shall take charge, as he
evinced such precipitancy In the choice
of that gentleman to succeed Mr. Worth
when the latter tendered his resigna-
tion on account of ill health, no doubt
supposing that his appointee would con-
tinue in the office during the next term.
In truth, hi precipitancy was so great
that It would not even permit him to
wait for a recommendation as to who
should fill the place from the County
Executive Committee, which was un-
juestionably the thing for him to do.

Gmo. B. PaRKics, CHA8. A. CAY,
During my incumbency of the office of
City Tax Collector I have tried hard to
render faithful and efficient service. I
believe that a large majority of our
people are entirely satisfied with the
errike I have rendered. I believe that
a large majority of our people feel that
there is absolutely no reason why any
ehanie should be made in the office,
and that it would not be wise to put
Out of office an experienced man, who
has proven capable and trustworthy, to
put in an inexperienced man from whom
no better service could be expected, to
say the least.
Believing as I do. I hereby announce
myself as a candidAte for re-election to
the office of City Tax Collector.
For some years I have collected every
cent of taxes due the city, a record I
believe to be unequalled in any city of
this size. Every year I have collected
a larger percentage of taxes than my
pr edecessors in office did, owing to the
fact that I gave more time to the
duties of the offeie than they could.
Each year, without exception, when I
have closed my boeks and made my
final settlement, the City Council then
in sessiod has highly complimented me
for the splendid showing made.
Owing to continued ill health I have
been compelled to resign my position
as agent of the Southern Express Com-
pany. This will enable me, if elected,
to devote a great deal more of my time
to the duties of the office in the future,
and if possible to render better service.
I fomue, if elected, not to turn the
tax poks over to another person, but
to give my personal attention to the
duties of the office.
Any assistance that my friends may
aee fit to render me will be highly ap-
prpciated. W. D. WILSON.
