Tampa Times
From all over Florida comes cheer
ing reports of fine crop yields and
good prices The single exception to
t e rule comes from the more norther
ly lettuce fields This usually profit
able vegetable is not shipping well
this season a new disease halving
made its appearance Shortly after be
ing cut the leaves wilt and droop as
if scalded spoiling the plant for mar
ket Heary losses have been sus
tained The experiment station is
looking into the cause of the trouble
and seeking 8 preventive It would
perhaps be as well for our people to
g a little slow on lettuce until the
trouble disappears or is overcome
This is however the only exception
to the story of agricultural prosperity
in south Florida
Proofs are steadily piling up that
there is easier work and better money
in farming in soutii Florida than in
any section of the country It takes
less money to begin operations
smaller expense is necessary in pro
viding a comfortable home land is
cheaper the climate permits labor in
the field every daylight hour in the
year except for occasional showers of
rain and altogether the conditions are
superior to any spot in the world In
case of individual failure the fault is
with the man and not with the soil
ant climate
The sale yesterday of the celery
from less than half an acre of ground
for SS0 affirms what the Times has
been preaching to the people of this
vicinity for years Small patches of
t uck rich fertilizing intense cultiva
tion these should be the rule Sup
pose a man had this season cultivated
two acres divide into strawberries
celery lettuce and cauliflower He
would have marketed at the least two
thousand dollars worth of stuff at a
net earning of fifteen hundred dollars
This is quite amply pay for the lime
I of ODe ipan for six months It is ad
mitted that the returns will not be
uniformly so excellent for each and
every season but they will come very
close to it tree times out of four
One main trouble is that our farmers
in the garden truck line undertake to
spread out too much with the result
that they do not prepare their ground
properly they do not fertilize enough
nor cultivate thoroughly Five acres
te enough for any man to superintend
in this section and he has to have a
keen eye if no spot or comer of it
gets awy from him
Memphis CommercialAppeal
Very few Americans realize the ex
t Dt of that antaiispeafcing world
which latterday American diplomacy
has brought into such close proximity
to this country We are one and all
prone to believe as we speak We
refer to the countries to the south of
ue as banana republics as vol
caaic nations and we are sadly un
I derestimating what these countries
represent For instance Hubert M
Skinner in the National Magazine in
describing the extent of the Spanish
speaklBg world says
The Spanishspeaking world is
muck lavger than the Frenchspeaking
and Dearly as large as the German
speaking There are perhaps fifty
million of people in all who make use
of the French language and seventy
millions all told who speak German
in some of its forms There are prob
ably sixtyfive millions or more who
I speak SfMEish aDd if we include
with them those who use the closely
related Portuguese the number will
bb about eightyfive millions
And this large Spanishspeaking
world is growing both in population
and in wealth la birth rate as far
as can be learned it is larger than that
oc the United States and second only
to that ot Germany I
Mexico has worked a marvel for it
HIt Chile is a good second to Mexico
an Bionos Ayres ia the Argentine
iS a city at a m Hon soul twice the
size of Madrid and wonderfully busy
with warehouses elevators wharves
and all the implements of modern
Nor is this Spanishspeaking world
a something that can be absorbed
No race element is more persistent
in maintaining its individuality W is
practically ineraxrfcaible and it is one
of the possibilities of the future that
it will be found standing up as a re
sisting power against the dominance
of the AngloSaxonTeutonic combina
tion These people are beginning to learn
the strength in union They are learn
ing too something of the science of
selfgovernment and it is by no
means chimerical to fancy at no very
distant date this Spanishspeaking
world solidified with a federal govern
ment something similar to our own
When that day shall come there will
be two world powers on this conti
nent and the weaker of the two will
not be without formidable power i

Wouldnt It be Delightful
The drainage of the Everglades
may be impracticable with the means
at hand it might be unprofitable in
any event But it would possibly be
the part of wisdom to experiment a
little around the edges If it should
get dry and burn off down to the rocks
as has been solemnly affidavited of it
we would have a magnMcent inland
fresh water sea that would banish the
surviving home of malaria serve the
purposes of navigation supply us
with scenery unsurpassed in beauty
and make the water front lots the
home of all the multimillionaires of
the north It is really too
bad not to believe that it
would burn Just picture the
whole landscape converted into wan
dering streams placid lakes gentle
islands in short a sort of a shaved
off Switzerland If we could only be
lieve the muck would burn to the
rocks below we would be an enthus
iastic advocate of inageTampa
Interest In Politics
The indications are that in this
county this year there is going to be
a very active interest taken in politics
by men who ordinarily have been quite
willing to let matters of this kind go
as they may This does not mean
necessarily a bitter campaign but it
does mean that good officers all
around will be selectedDeFuniak

An Underground Lake
A few days ago G E Whtehurst a
farmer near Kynesville while cutting
stalks over land which he had culti
vated for the past seven years sud
denly found his mutes submerged in
a lake or spring of water the crust ot
earth having given away underneath
One of the mules being unable to
touch the bottom at all supported
himseK by clinging to the solid earth
with his head and neck while the
other could just barely keep his head
above the water by standing on hind
Mr Whitehurst by use of his knife
quickly freed the poor animals from
harness and after hard work with
help in about two hours succeeded in
safely landing them

Yellow Journalism
When we hear people talking of
yellow journalism we wonder if
they know what they are talking
afoout The New York World supplied
most of the evidence that aroused pub
lic indignation against the insurance
grafters yet it is stated that the yel
low papers have dogged those fel
lows out of business The Washing

was begun Newspapers that get the

Big Terminals for Tampa
The Seaboard Air Line Railway Is
preparing to carry out its promise
made to the people of Tampa some
time ago that as soon as there wa
reasonable assurance of deep waiter at
this port it would put in extensive
terminals bere
The work of obtaining deeper water
under the continuing contract appro
priation made by congress has been
in progress for some time and the Sea
board has now taken actual steps to
ward the expenditure in terminal im
provements here of at least 300000
In this morninfes Tribune appears
the articles of incorporation of the
Tampa Terminal Company which is
composed of local business men but
which is in fact a corporation organ
ized by the Seaboard Air Line for the
purpose of building its termnals
The company will use the Sea
boards capital in carrying out the
railroads plans for extensive deep wa
ter terminals on Grassy Island the
property recently purchased by the Sea
board for this purpose
The company is composed of Peter
O Knight President F C Bowyer
VicePresident L J Cooper Secre

If we must take Governor Brwoard
seriously we can only conclude that
the drainage scheme rests on two pil
lars only
1 Wo must dig ditches because we
are bound jt > y contract with the
National Government so to do and
2 We must drain tha Everglades
because we ned sugar
On request the attorneygeneral
will inform the governor we are
bound to settle and develop the lands
as well as drain them and the courts
have ruled that the development is
the essence of the contractthat the
state complies with her coutracc
when she develops by building roads
as well as by digging diches Now
it would be a waste of money and la
bor to dig ditches on some of the
swamp and overflowed lands ince
they are already high and dry it
would also be a waste to ditch such of
them as we could not develop In
the latter class would remain and
must long remain by far the greater
portion of the Everglades even if
ditched and otherwise available since
we have not the men and women to
settle them To comply with our con
tract it is not necessary to ttfig ditches
so says the Supreme Court there
fore this argument fails to uphold the
claim of the governor
Neither would the digging of the
ditches enable us to supply ourselves
or the rest of the world with sugar
The governor figured that the estimat
ed cost of drainage would make the
cost per acre of drained land less
than the cost of clearing hammock
land of timber thats so But a com
paratively small proportion of the
drainage area is fit for cane culture
and to saddle the fit with the cost of
the whole would make the cost prohi
bifive since we have other lands just
as fit that nvoulo cost less Nor does
it follow that cane culture would be
come a great industry because of the
opening of the Everglades to settle
ment since we have a vast acreage
of land fit for iboth settlement and
cane culture that is not planted to
cane We believe and have often said
that Florida should produce sugar
and plenty of it but we can do so and
will do so when we have a sugar plant
ano not when we drain the Ever
glades If a modern sugar plant were
placed in any accessible locality there
would grow up a great sugar indus
try in Floridato our profit and the
infinite advantage of the country bu
the best results are to be secured
from the combined efforts of many
small planters and not by taxing the
small farmers to set up a great plan
taiion In a corner of the state
For ibecause of the conditons sur
rounding it the Everglades sugar
plantation will be owned and manage
from a central pointnot otherwise is
the best management possible Some
man or corporation with money to
put up a plant to ditch into the canals
and to take proper precautions against
fire anai to buy steam agricultural in
plements must ultimately if not imIne
diately crowd out the small planter
with his mule and oxen his plows
and his children for laborers The
costly plant and implements the
heavy work and the distanceS to be
traversed make the big sugaij planta
tion a necessity in the the Everglades
let such a corporation or man do the
ditching as well as the planting
make the sugar as well as grow it
There is money enough in the coun
try and the picture drawn by the gov
ernor is rosy enough lo enchant the
business audiencelet them heed
Governor Bloxham made a beginning
which wouL have done all Governor
Broward promises but for bad Tan
agement and the death of Mr Diss
Meantime why not put the money
in roads by way of development as
was wisely done in the past Why
not help the small farmer by some
means that would secure a sugar
plant and offer him a market for his
cane and sirup as his real friend
would seek to do Sirup worth one
hundred thousand dollars is now held
toy small farmers within the territory
tributary to Jacksonville and the pro
ducer cannot get his money because
there is no market for him short of
New Orleans let the governor solve
that problem for the benefit of the
poor man and we will arise and call
him blessed whether he views the
TimesUnion with contempt or not
