Leo Staln.aker. thought Leo hadn't connected with the Tampa Lite they would have sed l/>DYthing to the preacher o; anybody else about the gals The longer I live the older I git and I wud like to find out something about this formula '0! gittin' e'.yery tew days and. a. slicin' off years rour at a I !ollered that. thai crowd !rum the higlj school over to the Eighth Avenue church to see 'e'm I take the oTer. and make him a.pollgii:e. They had to whip the Sunday school superintendent before they couuld. tak,e )lim. The preacher's father-in-Jaw told sum or them thar fellers that the preacher's wife wuz sick .in bed right next door to the church and they told him .that that didn't-make no difference that her life didn't amount to ;;i.nything when the character or the high school girl!! had been attacked. They didn't say which high school girls. A!ter that thar crowd had skeered i.ll the women and children away frum the church they took the preacher on over to the high .school 11-nd whin they found out house Tuesday night last week and told him that hit looked like hiz house wu:z: gonna be burned down in spite or all they could do. The::r didn't say who they had delegated to do the job and -*het?-er hit would be very hard to stop 'em or not. The county solicitor this week iii havin" sum of 'em come to l;lis oms and tell !Jim whar they expected to git the matches. It Is funny to me that the parents ain't much concerned about the whole fracis e.t all, but hits just '-the school omcials anQ. the teachers. I didn't' think they had bin ae_cused of anything. However, the hit dog hollers. And thar shore has bin a lot or yelping and hollering. Some people so Iowdo"!n they .can the bel_ ly o! a snake with a plug hat on and not git any slime -l>n their hat. I have seed Jots of people wllo wuz so low down they had to stand on. a barrel to touch, bottom. i Now or course I ain't sayin' noth-1 ing about these here school offi-cialos here in Tampa. But then I have seen peop.le that wuz low down. Now of course I know that Edward Blackburn is ilwful sorry all t).iey could frum him a.bout Leo Stalnaker they wuz willin' to call that he-baz to do this and that off the :dogs and center their at-they swore out that warrants tack on. Leo. He wtlz the !eller against Stal_naker and that thar they wuz. after all the time.

Slhse thep we' ha>e had many years one of the leaders of the business i I the fori;n of a State committee, which gets together when a is. scheduled and then relapses into a condition aptly, described oy_ the late, Grover CleYeland. At the Leesburg dinner, challenged by Colonel Knight. no one could give the I interests In that State: Colonel Knight ls not only a great lawyer, but he is also a leading business man, identified In many ways wlth the upbuildlng actiYities of the State.' In an ,ad(lress made at'Leesburg, Fla., In 1927, Colonel ltnight, _though a Democrat himself, the thought" ihat the deYelopment of a strong Repul;>lican party In Florida would be for the dedded goo'Ul t uf that meeting so far as a systematic adverfising rnmpalgn con cerned, Florida is already rece!Yin g wldesp!' c a c l adver ti singbut. it is from the speech, not-thf meeting or the syst ema'tic -campaign. -'\ "Peter 0. Knight took occasion, In o f his nnrnrks at that banquet, to sug;:E'st the adrnntage.> of a strong and militant Republican in and w t s rliP spark tlint .has kindled editorial fires ln n u m erous important newspapers throughout the t"o11ntry. "'Colonel J(nigfit .is one o f those Floridian,-a ll too frw. as it happens--whose uti, e r;11;c e s rea c h far nncl tlH i ; o und a ries of the State anc1 Jlncl respE-c t f u l hearing in Pim nen t allll influentia l circles. S o when the Co l on el darel a sseit that a p owerful Republi::rn party in Florid a wnulo.l lie a good thing fo r the State, a ttentiv e ear:; \Vere f rom Friseo to \Vall StrEet and a l l points between, espedally in those qnRrters which arc deeply concerne d for the political future of the S outh. whether hopeful for tlie smashing of its traditional solidity or d ernte d to maintaining said solidity. "As a sample of the n ewspaper c omment, we finpublic a n p arty In Florida strong enough to b e threaten ing, hut not domina n t--sqfficiently menacing t o k ee p the Democruts astir and primarily. t o make a functio ni n i; Dem-name of the 'chairman of this obsolescent body. The truth is that there ls no organized Democratic party in '-Florida nnd there hasn't a. State Democratic platform in 27 :;-'ears. "!:!' the strengthentng. of the Republican party 0ln this State will produce a Democratic party organization and some degree o! Democratic unity o! policy and actiori-we say, let 'er, strengthen! The populace may not lose sleep on presidential elE)ction nights wondering 'How goes Florida,' but, .at least, Florida Democrats will know that they have been in a fight." Here is a sad ret!ection on the so-called Demohat!c party .. or Florida, ,but It was made by a Florida newspaper and not by the l\IA.NUl'ACTUBiras RECORD. We do know, that in many other States a iong-dominant party, by what ever name it may be known, becomes corrupt .and needs for !ts own go9d and for the good of the community a vigorous and aggressive antagonist. If it would be good for Florida for the whole country to be waiting tor the election returns, as &nggested by Colonel Knight, it would be equally good for every rock-ribbed Democratic State to be in the same category, and equally true as to every State tied by appairently unbreakable lines to the Republican party. Inde--. pendence ln voting, independence in thought, and aggressive work for 1the policies and the men for whom to vote would be to the best inte11ests or the country and would relieve us from many of the evils which now oppress us. The Hickory (N. C.) Daily Record In discussing this question or two parties said: "One of the firmest planks in the platform of the ideal American citizen is that one by which he reserves the inalienable right to think and to act according to the dictates of his conscience. Kone the less inactive is his conYiction that he may exercise this particular prerogative in his selection of the man to whom he will ghe his vote for first place in the Government-the Presidency. "At this good hour there are many thousands o! men anti women who will depnrt, for one reason or another, from 1 ;artisan po litics and many of them will. perhaps for the first t i me in their lh cs cast an independent vote. There are i"ume liCc -!ong H e puhlicans who will vote the Democratic 1 ir'ket this fall. T he y have their reasons for so doing.
