In Pensacola
We UTe to have tag day in Pen
sacola and by proclamation of his
honor the mayor December 21 is te
date fixed ItTIs a Rice amusing and
r iiffobjectlonable way at trifling cost
to each individual td raise money
for worthy purposes It will be
for the betterment of the entire corn
S muillty and it has become very popu
c lar in many clUes
No man except the unhappy Nico
Uemus Dumps immortalized by Boz
t Who was so steeped in gloomy selfish
ness that he thought all mankind
had conspired to keep him down will
seriously object to tag day and it
ought really to ie welcomed by all or
us as an ingenious device to do large
good without putting anybody under
burdensome tribute
And then the ladies God bless
I them are tho aggressive agents in
this scheme and they can separate a
man trorn his small contribution in
this cause With such smiling charm
and grace that if he is the right kind
of a man he will feel himself deeply
indebted to them for the privilege of
giving up
We never iad a tag day in Pensa
cola and as there is some mystery
I aboat the processwe take the follow
ing from the Tampa Tribune as a
graphic description benevolent
IS y u are able to be about on
December 21 in this progressive city
s YOK may expect to be approached by
a woman who will insist upon attach
lag to your clothing a cir ular piece
of oardboard Do not resist the at
tck for that would be ungentlemanly
Tamd useless Having properly la
belled you the fair one will stajjd by
expectantly awaiting some expression
from you Do not waste words in re
sponding to the challenge It will be
uuBocessary oven superfluous to say
anything The proper acknowledge
ment of tho salutation will be to in
sert one band carefully but quickly
into tho pocket where you keep your I
money concealed and extracting
therefrom coin or currency of what
ever denomination the larger the bet
ter hand same to the lady with a
courteous bow Do not then seek to
engage the lady in conversation be
cause she will have other salutations
to extend and other responses to re
scivo and yon will have ceased to in
terest her It you desire Information
aSvto tho purpose of It all the wise
O eswill be pleased to Inform you
th t it is Tag Day
A Has Been True
tbthe People
Gov Browards administration will
soon come to a close and the people
of Florida will lose the best governor
that ever served them We know this
will be contradicted many but
time will tell Broward has been
true to the people and It will be a
long time betor another like him will
occpy the gubernatorial chair Mana
tee Record
ABd thIs is tho simple truth tol4
about the governor of Florida and told I
in > plain straightforward language
which we may all undersand
No man of brains force and charac
ter can hold the position of chief ex
b ecutive of any state in tne union with
out making many enemies Governor
Broward has merely < pal < l that inevi
table price in his earnest and honest
eKort to do his full duty to the people
of > FIorlda He has don more He
has taken the initiative in the largest
task ever assumed by any governor
of our state in seeking to secure the
drainage of the great Everglades area
and bring it under cultivation as a pe
culiarly rich body of land that would
add annual millions to the wealth ot
Florjdla And he Is in a fair way to
succeed in his large enterprise
ordinary man would have been
Hfloraed off by adverse criticism long
a9 but as Broward knows his own
Djiiad and has backbone as well as
braJi fea feas stuck to his purpose
ad the Everglades are being slowly
but surely redeemed
He deserves all thecredit and pos
terity will give it to him As for the
rest no administration in Florida his
tory has been more free from scan
dalthan Goernor Brow rds In
A6 den rtment of the state govern
ment honesty and efficiency have been
the rule and the big strong dominat
ing personality of our chief executive
has been everywhere felt for good
Governor Broward will retire from
office with the sincere respect of his
fellow citizens whom he has served
so well and well done good and I
faithful servant will be his tribute
from classes of the people
Congress yesterday Nothing do
ing The trouble will not begin un

The genesis of frazzle is still a
subject for popular discussion A
nearby correspondent of The Journal
assures us that people down here
from the west are amused at this
small issue as the word 5ias been In
common parlance 11 over the west
for many many years and has nohe
role war origin having been a plain
word In plain use among the plain
people before there was any war in
this country This is probably true
and the subject being worn to a fraz
zle we should all drop It by common
Champ Clark of Missouri has been
selected to succeed John Sharp Wil
liams as the leader of the democratic
minority la the house An excellent
selection There is no better man nor
better democrat in this country than
Champ Clark and he is richly endow
ed with both brains and backbone
He Is a westernized southerner
broadened by geographical transposi
tion and In his strong cleancut face
clear steady honest eyes and big
wellshaped head we have the promise
of a capable party leader
The last issue of the Perry Herald
announces that C P Setzer who was
with that paper for a few weeks had
returned to hisformer home In Quit
man Ga We had all hoped tohear
from Setzer In his own peculiar vein
but it seems that it is not to be We
speak for all our jaded brethren of
the Florida press tired of the prosaic
themes of life and our prosaic way of
treating them when we cry aloud Oh
for a season ot Setzer and the High
Springs Hornet That incomparable
paper carried weekly joy Into every
newspaper sanctum in Florida and in
all seriousness we protest against the
obscuration of Its editor
We all know that Bryan was defeat
ed and Taft was elected tout our elec
toral college system still a mixed
proposition to many voters None or
us voted for either of the presidential
candidates but for
the electors one
from each congressional district In
the United States who are supposed
to faithfully represent our presidential
choice in the electoral college The
law provides that the electors who
were chosen In the November election
shall meet in all the states and terri
tories at the various capitals on the
second Monday in January January
11 cast their votes and select one or
their number to carry the result to
Washington at the following session
of congress which body will count the
votes and announce the election ot
the president and vicepresident
The Starke Telegraph frankly an
nounces that it is tired of the high
tax wall which is chiefly used as a
popular cry to ride into office on and
then forgotten as soon as the office is
obtained When high taxes mean
graft and dishonest administration
popular indignation against them is
clearly justified but that Is very sel
dom the case and never in Florida ot
recent years Our state government
is run as cheaply as is compatible
with efficient and progressive adminis
tration and the gentlemen who are
wailing about high taxes should stop
their noise long enough to file a bill
of particulars A good way to keep
Florida down Is to make taxes so
light that we will have none of the
equipment of highclass modern
commonwealth And that is also a
good way to promote ignorance ana
povertyand build a Chinese wall ot
exclusion around us
