A Story from Florida Whkk la Frabablv
Tree a A ay of Haccara'a.
A party of well known Atlanta gentlemen,
Hasan. W. P. Carter, Alfred Nixon, H. B.
Wrenn and Frederick Maxwell, returned
from a hunting and fishing trip to the Ever
Blades of Florida, told a wonderful story
about a discovery made by them In the
depths of this vast swamp, which will, no
doubt, go far toward dispelling the mystery
which has hitherto so closely enveloped tbe
primeval Inhabitant of this continent the
Tbe party had been out for about two
weeks and had not been very successful, game
being comparatively scarce. Learning from
tbe native that they would And better sport
by going deeper into tbe recesses of thi
trackless swsmp, although warned at the time
of tbe danger of doing so, owing to the diffi
culty of threading one'a war through its
tangled niaaee, they decided to penetrate the
famous Everglades. Securing a light boat
manned by two nrirrnea, with provisions to
last them for a fortnight, tbey started down
one of the sluggNh streams leading toward
tbe heart of tbe swamp. Toward the end of
the fourth (lav, during which time shooting
snd fishing hsd hewn a gflbd deal better, tbey
were surprised to find themselves hm from
the tangled Jungle and float out on a large
In the renter of this sheet of water was an
Irregularly abaped talaad. probably a half
mile In length and almost tbe ssms in width,
standing considerably above the level of tbe
surrounding marshes, and comparatively
bare of vegetation. On this bland was a cir
cular mound at out Ilk) feet high, covered
with various kind of trees. Tbe hunters at
our bunted with the purpose of exploring
what they at ones surmised to be a relic of
the ancient mound builders. They soon dis
covered that the trees were of a species tbey
hsd never seen before, the wood being of a
remarkably close filter and hardness, and
when, after considerable time and labor, the
two negroes succeeded In felling one of tbe
smallest, the ring show I it to t almost
4,'M year old.
Mr. Carter, th first to arrive at the sum
mit of th eminence, discovered a shaft sunk
Into tbe bowels of tbe mound. No rope being
ol. tains ble, a grape vine waa substituted, and
Mr. Carter twgan hi descent into tbe dark
ness of the opening. After having been low
ered a short distance, feeling at tbe same thus
In the sides with a stick, be perceived a sud
den widening of the shaft, awl, striking a
match, found a corridor extending on both
sides as f sr as be could as by tbe feeble light
Telling his friends of hi And. be daringly en
tered the gallery, where be waa quickly joined
by Mr. Maxwell, and the two (Darted out to
explore the mysterlee of the mound.
Tbey had proceeded but a few yarils when
the gallery suddenly eularged and disclosed
to them a chamber about 15 feet high and 31)
feet square. Hers a strange sight met their
eyas la rows around the room were queerly
shaped coffin, mad of th wood of the tree
which grew on the mound, and covered with
unintelligible characters. Grouped around
each coffin were gold pot and utenll of
great value, also luscrtbed with hieroglyph
ics. In th middle of the room was a minia
ture mound, and in this were found pots.
Images and various bric-a-brac. Bearching
further, they found several similar chambers,
some empty and some Oiled with all manner
of strange and curious articles.
Returning to ths shaft and descending fur
ther another corridor was found connecting
with more rooms than th Orst one, but on
reaching th bottom the explorers discovered
a third gallery hading Into a chamber, the
splendor and magnificence of hich fairly
took away their breath. While the walls of
tbe rooms on tbe other levels were of earth,
the walla of this were of beaten silver, the
ceiling of a kind ot unknown blue metal,
thickly strewn with diamonds to represent
stars, and the floor ot brass.
( )n one side of the room were thirteen gold
thrones, exquisitely carved, on which sat as
msny niummies, these, no doubt, being the
dei-eased king of this people. Opposite each
throne was a marble statue, probably repre
senting the king it faced. In the center of
the chamber was a mound similar to tboa In
the other room, in which were found 00 ro
ne t. arepter and other insignia of royalty.
Securing a many trophies as tbey oould well
take care of, tbe party set out on their return

tbe Iowa delegation:
"Its (Ibe Uiilon object shall be to insti

ment la behalf of total abstinence and tbe
prohibition of alcoholic liquor, the develop
ment of purity, the suppression ot vlo and
Brim, and tbe education ot the masse in
lb da Mas and responsibilities of citizen
ship." Mrs. Foster's Appeal.
Mrs. Aldrich, of Iowa, opened the debate
la favor of adoption, Imt it waa evident
from the commencement to tbe end of tbe
discussion tbat tbe feeling of tbe convention
was ovsrwbelmingly against tbe proposed
amendment Msny of the delegates in op
posing it cbsrscteriadd it as s rB ction upsa
the previous action ot tbe W. (.; T. U. and
Its previous olaima to nea-partisanship. Mrs.

with emotion as sbs waved ber arms, abe de

been spplsuded by tan great body of women

from this platform tbs names of honored
men in tbe Kvpublic-ui party had been de

This statement was followed by a perfect
storm of protests, and the spealcor was his-ted
loudly. It was aa injustice, tlie speaker
aid, tbat any woman should be calltxl b -re
to be compelled to submit to the invssion of
her political prsfersnces at the will of a ma
jority. A vote was then taken oa the amendment,
and it waa anowed under by tbe votes of tbe

the exsmple of total abstinence they set for
their Interiors. Ths convention adopted a
vote ot thanks to th two generals.
Oen. Clinton B. Fluke, in addressing tbe
convention, spoke about Vice President Miir

to bare blm lead In the reform by taking
steps to have tbe grog-shop under the senate

Last evening the majority report from the
committee ou resolutions waa presented to
the oonventiou. Touching tbe non-partisan
question it reads as follows: "Wt believe it
is Vital to temperance reform that tbe

fore give our approval to that party only
which declare Iu its platform tor prohibi

for its application to law. "
A minority report waa brought in by Mrs.
