Immediately under this list appears
the fo o vF:
"Others might be added, prolong o
the list almost in ileltely, but bt W
will, we bimevie, be accepted as the
most vitally important. And some
would transpos the Item of the Isot
to relative Importance, but that is mre-
ly a matter of individual opinion."
It is then, evidently, the "Individt al
opinion" of this edior that State pro.-
hibiton is the most insignificant of his
suggested ssues.
In commenting on these he says of
this last ia his oumeration:
"The extremists among the temper-
ne people of thea ttate are preparing
to inset late the deliberations of the
oealns the awturbin element of a de-
mand for Sltate prob tiion, and It ap.
pears probable that this topic will afford
occasion for the consumption of more
valuable time than any other question
arising during the session The real
friends of temperance, believing that
the existing local option system requires
only the adoption of still more radical
and stringent regulations directed
against the unlawful saleof intoxicants
to effect the purposes of the law, will
endeavor to preserve a system which
has forbidden the sale of liquors in
about thirty-six of the forty-six eoun-
ties of the State, and avoid another
amendment to the constitution, which
must ensue before State prohibition can
be made effective."
Notwithstanding the insignificance
given to this proposed measure, by the
gentleman n his list, he devotes more
space In commenting on It than to any
other of those mentioned.
According to this kind of argument,
It s necessary to east a mountain upon
a lea to kill it.
In his heart thm gentleman from Cc-
luabia knows that hi should have re.
versed the order of his issues sad placed
prohibition at the head, for the legaal

If the gentleman who has jusot bee

be still higher honors for him.
The Truee Democrat will watch his

John U. Collins, from whom we pur-
chased The True Democrat, is so con-
siderate of the needs of a hungry news-
paper man, that he is keeping our lar-
der supplied with fine pike and bream
these balmy spring days. Nothing like
having an ex-newspaper man as a
friend, especially if he knows bow to
induce the nony tribe onto his book.
Governor Gilhrist is to be commend-
ed for having so promptly orded a p-
cial term of court in Leon county or
the trial of the murder of her brave
sheriff. The thing people want isspeedy
justlee ain such cases as this, and if the
courts can once get a reputation along
thi line, mob law will soonbe a thing
of the past.-Mariana Courer.

The following recommendation is made by Jde Jb.
Emmet Wolfe, First Judicial Circuit, and Is coameu ionfl:
He recommends the repeal of the law allowing a reward
of $50.00 to informers In liquor cases. He says: "I thk'
this law leads to perjury."
He recommends: "A law requiring the Clerk of the
Supreme Court to aend a carbon copy of the Suptmr
Court's decision in appealed cases to the Circuit Judgi
who tried the case."
The following recommendations by Judge W. S.& Bl

ward of $50.00 in cash in case of conviction of aeead
for selling liquor without a license. He usS very aeFOq ,
language, stating that it is "Preilum on perjury. The
temptation Is too great to commit perjury."
"The law requiring the Circult Judge to ertify to p -

Referring to the Board of Pardons, he says: "If te
Atate of Florida were reprerented before the Par4dai

which the applicant was convicted. It would have ( "
effect of bringing out the true condition and sata1 e

such that whenever the Governor, upon the advice a ,d .

Rtate Attorney who conducted the cae could appear be*
'ore the Pl'ardoning Board, and the case before the Pardoe.
Ing lonrd could be met for a hearlngr at a time whih *\'

If it were necessary for the case to be set for a hearIug

In the Report of the Commissioner of Agriculture, pp
575, it appears that the lands claimed by railroads, and
not deeded, aggregate 5,093,587.26. This does not include
the claims of several other railroads having land grants
but which have not put in their claims. Of these claims, the
claims to 1,855,947.57 acre have been trabufeored to the
State Board of Education, leaving ,2f87,69.60 acres still
claimed by the railroads. The total number of acres of
swamp lands, as shown from the statement above given,
January 1, 1909, by the trustees, are 1,581,162.82 acres It
will be remembered that in all the legislative grants, there
wa a provision to the effect that each grant was subject
to prior grants. The transference of thee claims to the
State Board of Education does not .hitate against the
claimed of those railroads which have resved o lands. If
the railroad d companes, having prior claim, had reeived
these lands, than there would have bes no lands with

"There could be no sales of lands within the meaalfg
the Constitution of 1868, until the prior liens, c4 eie

warrant upon the Treasurer of the State of Florida for
the full amount of the principal and interest so found to
be due."
On May 10, 1906, the said bill came up upon its second
reading, as a special order. Mr. Gilchrist, of DeSoto,
offered the following amendment: "They shall also ex-
amine into the service of those who entered into the
service of this State, or the service of the Confederate
States from this State, during the war between the States.
If any have not been paid properly they shall so report,
stating amount due them." Mr. Knight, of Citrus, moved
to lay the amendment on the table, but by a vote of 18
to 42 Mr. Knight's motion was not agreed to, after which
the amendment offered by Mr. Oilchrist was agreed to.
After the adoption of other amendments, Mr. Gilchrlst.
of Defoto, moved to indefinitely postpone House Bill No.
72, which motion to indefinitely postpone was agreed to
by a vote of 89 to 90.
On May 11, 1905, Mr. Gilebrist, of Deloto, Introduced
in the House of Representatives House Bill No. 401:
"A bill to be entitled An Act constituting the Governor.
the Attorney General and the State Treasurer a Board
of Commissioner to examine Into and report upon the
claims against the State arising from moneys received
by the State on account of Indian War claims." (Pair
912, House Journal. 1905.)
Mr. Gilchrist's bill was enacted into law, becoming
Chap. 5451. Acts of 1906, which provided that 'The
Governor, Attorney General and Treasurer are hereby
constituted a Board of Commlmioner@ to examine into
all rialoms In which it is et forth that 'the State of Florida

"The claims which have been filed with the Board, in-
cluding interest at aven per cent. from Jan. 1, 1858.
iggreffte about 9225,000.00.

"No proof was submitted by any of the claimants.
which, in the opinion of this Board, eetabllahed the fact
that the claims submitted, or any of them, form any
part of the Btate's claim agalast the United States, for
which the State received payment.

The True Democrat,

Of Bradford County.
Hon. L. W. Wall, member of
the House from Bradford oWm
ty, claims that he is no politlhdil
but only one of Florida's "m
ble citizens." In this uply.
however, his record shows thi
he has served his State faith*
ly and well.
Mr. Wall was born in SAX .
Carolina in the year 1848, bout
1850 came with his father -a
family to Putnam county, r *
da, where he lived until bli M
rnae in 1867, when he rcwd "
to Clay county.
During the war between
States, he served in the Co
rate army a little over .
years, being paroled at Wd;a
Florida. where he was amembM
of Captain J. J. Dickerson's
pany. His services as pa
official consists in having bee
tax assessor for Clay county dare
ing the years 1877-78, and t
Bradford, to which county hbe
moved in December, 1880, deiurl
1896-96. In 1897 he was sent t
the legislature, but after om
term declined to re-enter politieS,
though he consented to serve as
one of the board of county oolf-
missioners during a six month i
In 1908. Mr. Wall. without hb
own consent, wasannounced aes
candidate and elected by his
friends to the present session at
the legislature. He is now sixty,
six years old and is the father
of tb ree daughters and two soma .
Few people realize the importance at
the Brown-Jenings hardwood faetry
located in the southern part of the uity,
hut it is one that is probably riceilVta
more foreign business than any othr
concern in this State.
During the past week they have hyip.
ped five solid cars which were cut sepw
tally for the foreign trade, and thi b
not an occurrence that happens just 021
and then, but they are receiving at *
times orders from foreign countries to
the Florida product of the hickory, ea
and ash.
Among the shipments made the pau
week was three cars for HamburlgGsm
many, which were ordered by tMhe
ernment for special purposes, I
been discovered that thin matu 4
lust better and be more serviceshIl
other materials that have hereibei
ben uaed.
Two cars were whipped to ChriesU
Norway, and this material will be I
principally for skis (snow shoe).
Besides the ehipmuets that are M
to foreign eoutries the r.m are a a
times busy ttiUng specialoNee feor ~
loeal trade and hip a largmemo of

The Florida Female College is not a normal and industrial school, but is priir arily a
College of liberal arts, with which are associated a school of industrial arts, a school for teachers
and a school of fine arts. The aim of the institution is, in the course of time, to provide every
facility for the higher education of women and to render the College a university for women in
fact if not in name.
he College maintains the following departments:



ment of English language and literature. 3. De
ment of mathematics and astronomy. 5. Depart
apartment of philosophy and education. 7. Depai
of natural science. 9. Department of drawing.

apartment of classical languages. 2. Depart-
apartment of modern languages. 4. Depart-
tment of history and political science. 6. De-
rtment of physical science. 8. Department
10. Department of oratory and physical

II. THE SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL ARTS. 1. Cooking. 2. Sewing, dressmaking, milli-
nery. 3. Housekeeping. 4. Horticulture and floriculture. 5. Industrial drawing.
III. THE SCHOOL FOR TEACHERS. 1. Classical, literary, and scientific studies. 2. Vo-
cal music. 3. Freehand and industrial drawing. 4. Domestic science and manual training.
5. Reading and physical culture.
IV. THE SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS. 1. The department of music. a. Piano, organ, violin,
etc. b. Voice culture and vocal music. r. History and theory of music. d. Elocution and physi-
cal culture. 2. The department of art. a. Drawing and painting. b. History of art. c. Clay
r- -- nm ...



modeling, designing and carving. 3. The d'
apartment of expression. a. Oratory. b. Litera-
ture. c. Physical education.
From this outline it may be seen that the
College aims to provide for Florida Girls the
highest and best education possible: It cannot
do less, for, after all, women more than men,
exercise the greater influence upon society and
citizenship, since it is the home in which origi-
nate the forces that determine the character of
the community, the State and the Nation. Edu-
cation of the mother means the education of the
children. The State in such an undertaking as
this owes it to herself to provide for the highest
and best development of her women. To this
end the Florida Female College has entered upon
its career with a threefold mission: the devo
opment of a "good heart," a cultured mind,
a skillful hand in the young womanhood of FloF"-

Among all the towns of Florida there is none
more attractive or better adapted for the loca-
tion of an educational institution than Talla-
Tallahassee enjoys excellent railroad facilj-
ties which give her ready communication with
every part of Florida by means of the Seaboard
Air Line Railway. The city is also the
nus of three other railroads: The Carrabelle,Tal
lahassee and Georgia; the Tallahassee South

eastern; and the Georgia, Florida and Alabama,
which bring the city within a few hours of At-
lanta, Macon and Montgomery.
To parents and guardians no characteristic
of Tallahassee will appeal more strongly than its
abundant supply of the purest artesian water
and the presence in its midst of a competent
corps of physicians, surgeons, and trained nurs-
e. Parents in the more northern States may
here enjoy the benefit of the mild and healthful
climate of Florida and, at the same time, utilize
the educational advantages offered by Tallahas.

was his duty to have and express

The second reason Mr. MeLin
gave to which he attributed much
of his political success, was the
fact that he had carried out, to
the best of his ability, the lessons
taught him by Dencratie ane-
tore that publicc ofce is a public

endeavored to treat all with the

Another point Mr. MceLn re-

that has contributed to his sup-
port for public favors, is that he
might be called a stickler in hav-
ing all applications for informa-

ment, promptly replid to. He
said he usually called his clerical
force together about the begin-
ning of each administration, and
advised them that his idea of
making political campaign was
to commence the first day of each
administrative term, the first day
of each year, with a persistent
effort'to give prompt and as com-
plete as poiblee Information to
all enquiries mae by any indi-
vidual citizen.
Upon asking the Commissioner
if there were any particular mat-
ters that he had in mind that
should receive considention at
the hands of the incoming legis-
lature he said there were and
mentioned the following:
"As set out fully in my tenth

Hon Park M. Trammell, Florida's new Attorney General, is a
young nan having in him all the elements that go to make success.
Of a fine physique and a dignified bearing, he seems also to possess
the calm and equable temperament, clearness of perception, quick-
nees of execution, honesty of purpose a nd depth of mind that har-
monises well with these external qualifications in gaining for him
position and recognition. As a lawyer he is alert and active, well-
grounded in his profession, and thoroughly posted in all affairs per-
taining to his new position. -.
Mr. Trammell was reared in Polk county, and Lakeland has been
the place of his residence during the most of his young manhood.
g He graduated in law at the Curr berland University. Lebanon, Ten-
u se, in May, 1899, having earned for himself the money with
*which to pay his expenses, and immediately after began the prac-
tieof law. His public service began at an early age. He was
mayor ofCakeland during two terms, being elected to that office
when only twenty-three years old. At twenty-six he was sent to
Sthouse of representatives, and two years later to the senate, of
body he was made president. Now, at the age of only thirty-
he is the Attorney General of Florida, and as such bids fair to
e for himself an enviable record.
Mr. Trammell has stood from the first for publicity in all public
He advocates the advertising of any projected sale of
tracts of land, and has introduced a number of resolutions re-
ring monthly reports and other data to be furnished to the In
a Improvement Trustees. In the early part of his term he of-
ferd a resolution to discontinue the employment of a regular at-
torney by the Trustees. and another to prohibit any paid agent, (m-
ployee or attorney of the Trustees from getting any commission -
compensation from the purchasers of public lands. On the Pardr r
ing Board, Mr. Trammel takes the position that every application i
*should have thorough investigation, and that, while justice shou'
be tempered with mercy, the law-abiding must be remembered
well as the law-breaker.
Mr. Trammell's record as a legislator was one of which he might
SdJustly te proud. He was active and aggressive, and was the author
ft many important measures. A few of these are as follows:
Two of the laws for State aid for public schools, under which]
thousands of the children in the country get a longer term.
Thelaw allowingan attorney's fee and 50 per cent per annum t
force railroads and express companies to pay claims for lost or dan -
aged freight and overcharges in a reasonable time.
A law authorizing the Railroad Commission to require transport:.
tion companies to refund overcharges made in violation of ratA
i made by the Commission.
The law allowing persons one year from dat4 a rate made by th
Railroad Commiss on is held to be legal, in which to sue for ove: -
charges, instead of one year from time claim arises. Under the ol
law the time would expire before legality of rate would be passed
upon by the court.
The law to protect the farmer against the deceitful methods of
the commission merchants in soliciting consignments of produce.
A law raising the license tax on express companies and authoriz-
ing towns and cities to impose a license tax.
A resolution appealing to Congress to amend the law in several
particulars that would doubtless give better freight rates.
A law to make the tax assessment law apply to the railroads the
same as to individuals, by taxing the franchise. This was to cor-
rect the discrimination in favor of the railroads. It is said that as
the mutoe of the fight for this measure the license tax of $10.00
a mile was placed on railroads.
A measure to require the publication in detail of the financial
S trsa -ntms of the State officers. that the public ,nay know some-
thing of its busines...
A ure providing that when large tracts of public lands are
to sbeo they should advertised.

ems, ad to require them to publish a sworn expense account

Who Represents the 2th
trial District


The subjecti'f this sketch, the
honorable Senator from the 29th
District, sent no poto aph to
adorn the page of this issue of
The True Deocrat giving as an
excuse an "absence of good
looks," conequently we can give
only a word picture of his attain-
ments, which, after all, conveys
the truer image of the real man.
Hon. W. E. Baker was born in
Sumter county, .& C., about for-
ty-thre years ago, but for the
past eighteen years he has lived
in Florida. His business is real
estate and fruit-growing, and his
35-acre orlgee grove in Clay
county, is one of the best paying
properties in all that section, not-
withstanding that on three suc-
cessive occasions Mr. Baker has
had to "go down upon his knees"
to re-bud the stock after a severe
freeze. Perseverance, however,
is Mr. Baker's watchword, and is
a quality of mind that brought
him success in the campaign of
last year when, after a most stub-
bornly contested fight, he won
out for the Senate. His oppo-
nents were Col. C. F. Law, of
Green Cove Springs, and ex-Sen-
ator F. A. Fleming, of Hibernia,
brother to Florida's late lament-
ed ex-Governor, Hon. Francis P.
Mr. Baker I as already served
in the Legislature as a member
of the House during two terms.
Senator from 16th District.
Hon. Andrew Zenas Adkins,
of Starke, Florida, Senator from
the 16th District, has the distinc-
tion of being the youngest mem-
ber of the present session. lHe
was born March 16, 1877, at New
River, Bradford county, and lived
upon his father's farm until 1901.
During these years in the coun-
try he attended school but not
very regularly. Later, he took
a ten month's course in the Geor-
gia Normal and Business Insti-
tute at Abbeville, Georgia, grad-
uating at the end of that time
from the commercial department.
After this he took up the study
of law and graduated from the
law department of Cumberland
University, Lebanon, Tenn., in
June of the year 1903, and was
admitted that same month' to the
bar of Florida, at Gainesville.
He now has ar excellent lawv

practice not only at Starke-
where his home is, but als,)
throughout the State.
Mr. Adkins is prominent in In
cal politics, having served hi:

terms, 1907-08, and bears the en.

Twelfth Secretary of State since the admission of Florida into the
was born in Bainbridge, Georgia, on the 5th of April, 1856, and
was reared on the "Old Plantation" near Crawfordville, in Wakulla
county, Florida. He was married February 22d, 1881, to Anna
Moring, of Crawfordville. and for several years thereafter was en-
gaged in the mercantile business.
Mr Crawford's political career began in 1887, when he was
elected to the Florida Legislature from Wakulla county. It will be
remembered that the Legislature of that year was marked by the
spirited contest for the United States Senatorship between former .
Governor Bloxham and Governor Pet ry. Eight years before, Gov.
Bloxham had appointed the father of the Wakulla Representative
to be Secretary of State, and four years there ifter Governor Perry
had performed a like service, and Mr. Crawford found himself un-
der obligations to both candidates. He espoused the cause of Gov-
ernor Bloxham, however, and supported him throughout the long
and bitter contest, which finally resulted in the election of Senator .
Samuel Pasco.
In January, 1889, Mr. Crawford accepted a clerkship in the office
of the Secretary of State, which position he held continuously until
the death of his father in January, 1902, when Governor Jennings
appointed him, without his making application for the said position,
to succeed his father, which appointment extended only until the
next general election, and in the primary of 1902 he was elected ,
without opposition. In the campaign of 1904 he was opposed for t
re-election by two ex-State Senators. In the first primary he failed
by only a few votes of securing a majority over both opponents
and was forced to go into a second primary, in which he was elected
by a majority of more than fivq thousand votes, and in the primary
of 1908 he was again elected without opposition.
No man in this State was ever reared in a better political school,
no man ever imbibed his ideas of democracy from a purer soure ;
and those who know him best will be the first to say that no Cm ,R
ever moro faithfully applied the fundamental principles of deqnws
racy to the political problems with which he has had to cope ina h
official and political life.
He comes from an old and distinguished Southern fa_..y _,.
Among his most prominent ancestors is his great uncle, WHill ,-'
Harris Crawford, who was in the public eye along with Webt',
Calhoun and Clay. He was United States Senator from Georgia;
first President pro tempore of the United States Senate; Secretary
of War under President Madison; Secretary of the Treasury usda
President Monroe, and refused the same position under Preident
John Quincy Adams; was Minister to France during the reign j
Napoleon. and was the regular caucus nominee of the Democratl
party in 1824 for the Presidency. Another kinsman, George W.
Crawford, was Governor of Georgi& and Secretary of War. Otk ,'.
ancestors held various positions of honor and trust, one being -
retary of State of Georgia for many ears, whit his own atb
was Secretary of State of Florida for twenty-o years. In abm.i'
iting the political tendencies of his ancestors, the present Secretary
of State alfo exemplifies in his political and private life a fr-ankeim
of character, honesty of purpose and simplicity of manner that W
such high and honorable positions for those who wrote the
name in the political history of the past century. There is no
resembling ostentation about Mr. Crawford, it has always been
belief and practice that official trusts should make all public
vants what the name really implies, not the beneficary, but
trustee, cf the people, subservient at all times to the will
wishes of those from whose hands the trust was received. 55*
extremely simple in his manner, is easy of approach, and a w
his desire to al ways accommodate those having business in ts]T
apartment. He is what might be termed a 'Working O '"
too good to "punch" a typewriter or transcribe a record, or
thing else connected with the work'of his office.
He is ex-rfficio State ULbrarian, custodian of the Capitol
and grounds, and member of the Board of Commesaer
Institution, the Pardoning Board, the Board of Eduuctim
State Canvassing Board. He is also custodian of the Gra
the State and State records. He .lso has supervision of the

Perile Ar persi .
A few of the newspapers thai
ardently p t MoI .IBow-
ard and W'kt~oat in the primaries
of last year, are already seeking
to cast discredit on Governor Gil-
christ's administration by indulg-
ing in reflections that are not on-
ly unjust, but puerile. For one
thing, they sneer at the fact that
our new executive is carrying out
the Everglades drainage policy of
Governor Broward, and in doing
so they would lead one to believe
that General Gilchrist, in his pri-
mary campaigns last summer,
declared against the Broward
drainage scheme and as a result,
had received the support of all
the opponents of drainage.
The fact is that General Gil-
christ never did declare against
the Everglades drainage scheme.
The sum and substance of allhat
he said on the subject was that it
was "a business proposition" to
be considered carefully as to the
cost and the profits. He thought
that such a colossal scheme
should not be undertaken with
undue haste or a reckless disre-
gard of the possible consequen-
ces, amongst which consequences
was the eventual ownership of
the lands as might be decided by
the courts.
The ownership having been
settled by compromise, and the
Internal Improvement Board
having already invested hundreds
of thousand of dollars in dredges
and actual operations, and having
also made great land sales and
contracts binding the board to
continue the drainage scheme,
there was nothing else left for
Governor Gilchrist to do, even if
he had been opposed to the prop-
osition. But he never did say that
he was opposed to it, and so the
aspersions of the Broward-Stock-
ton press are nonsensical.
Our new governor is a man of
business sense, and is moved in
his official acts only by the purest
patriotism and the loftiest ambi-
tions; and those who are inclined
to make invidious reflections upon
lkis administration may rest as-
-sure'd that whatever he may do
will be done with an eye single
to what he conscientiously be-
lives,. to lbe for the best interest
of the State, and no amount of
