Resolution adopted by the house of
representatives April 14th, 1913.
By Mr. Farris, of DuvaL
House Resolution No. 58: .
Whereas, there is a grave Injustice
in our. law, in this: That if a tele
gram, advising of the serious illness
of one's mother, wife, or child, be de
livered to and accepted by a telegraph
company, for transmission and deliv
ery, and the charge of the company be
prepaid, and the telegram be not sent
or not delivered through the careless
ness or neglect of the company, and
the loved one should die and be buried,
without the knowledge of the person to
whom the telegram was sent, although
such person suffer the most poignant
grief, the telegraph company cannot be
held responsible in damages,, for its
neglect of duty, in failing to deliver
such message; and,
Whereas, if a telegram related to the
Bale of a five dollar hog, and because
of the telegraph company's neglect of
duty, the sale of the hog was lost, the
telegraph company could be held re
sponsible for such loss; and.
Whereas, it is apparent that tele
graph companies in this state would
serve their own Interests and delay

guilty of crime, as well as in other
cases where the damage is equally un

Whereas, In the States of Alabama,

Nevada, Texas, North Carolina, South
Carolina, and perhaps other states, re
covery of damages is permitted in the
class of telegraph cases mentioned, but
recovery of damages in such cases IS
Whereas, the Juries in those states
mentioned, estimate the damages to be
allowed in all suits for mental and
physical pain and suffering in personal
injury cases for humiliation, indignity
and grief, in breach of promise to

ful ejectment from railroad trains and
street cars, and in other like cases;
Whereas, we believe that the Juries
in Florida are as intelligent and capa

telegraph cases mentioned as juries in
Nother states; and
Whereas, the Honorable John r.
Stokes, Senator from the second sena
torial district of Florida, has prepared
and introduced a bill to remedy the de
fect In the law above pointed out, said
measure having been introduced in the
house by Representative Ion I. Farris,
of the county of Duval; and
Whereas, the said measure upon Its
introduction in the house was referred
to the house committee on railroads
and telegraph; and
Whereas, the chairman of said com
mittee, the Honorable R. R. Tomlln,
representative from Hlllsboro county.
gave public notice in the house on Fri
day, April 11th, 1913, that said commit
tee would hold a publle meeting, In
committee room number - on Satur
days-April 12th 1913, at nine o'clock a.
m., for the purpose of considering said
measure, and hearing arguments for
and against the same; and
Whereas, said committee did meet at
the time and place mentioned; and
Whereas, Fred T. Myers, Esq., ap
peared before said committee and
stated that he represented as attorney
the Western Union Telegraph Com
pany, the "Interests most vitally af
fected by said measure," and the eaid
Fred T. Myers, Esq., asked that the ,
consideration of the said measure be
postponed until Monday afternoon, j
April 14th, for the reason that the said
interests represented by him were en- :
titled to a fair hearing and that he
has not had time to prepare an argu- j
ment which he intended to make;
against said measure; and.
Whereas, the Hon. John P. Stokes,
replied to the said attorney for the said
Telegraph Company calling attention
to the fact that he, the said Senator
Stokes, represented eight hundred
thousand people in Florida, who were
also vitally affected by this measure,
and that in their behalf he urged the
immediate consideration of said meas
ure by said committee on the ground
that he. Senator Stokes, had mailed a
printed copy of the substance of said
measure to every member of the leg
islature a month before the convening
of the legislature, and that he had at
the same time given to the press of the
state, copies of the substance of said
measure, which were published gen
erally 'throughout the state, and fur
ther that he had given a copy of the
substance of said measure to a Mr.
Warde. lobbyist for the Western Un
ion Telegraph Company, on the day
after the convening of the legislature
(the said Warde being present at said
committee hearing and not denying
said statement); and
Senator John Pr
further directed the attention of the
common and welllknown policy of the
Western Union Telegraph Company
and all other public service corpora
tions to delay the consideration of
measures before committees of the leg
islature In order that such measure
when reported, if reported at all might
die on a congested calendar; and
Whereas, Ion I Farris. speaker of
the house representatives, was present
at said hearing of said committee and
propounded the following questions to
the said Fred T. Myers, Esq., attorney
tor said Western Union Telegraph
Company, as aforesaid, vix:.
"Question by Mr. Farris:
; Q. "Mr. Myers I understand you to
say that you ask a postponement of the
consideration of this measure, because
you had not had time to prepare an
argument which you would like to
make against It?"
A. (by Mr. Myers). -Yes sir. I
have not had time to prepare myself."
Q. "Mr. Myers, Is not a fact that
similar measures to the one now before
tbis committee have been Introduced
into the legislatures of other states?"
A. (Mr. Myers, with hesitation).
"Yes. sir."
Q. "Mr. Myers, is It not a fact that
a number of states have enacted laws
similar to this measure?"
A. (Mr. Myers, with much apparent
reluctance). "Yes."
Q. "Mr. Myers, is it not a fact, that
the Western Union Telegraph Com
pany has appeared before the legisla
ture of the several states in opposition
to such measures as this one?
A. t (With much more reluctance). "I
believe so." ,
Q. "And, Mr. Myers, Is it not a fact,
that your client, the Western Union
Telegraph Company, has been making
these lights against the same kind of
measures for a number of years?" i
A. (Mr. Myers, apparently provok-1
ed). "I am so Informed.
Q. "And. Mr. Myers, you say you
ask for a postponement of this hear
ing because you and the Western Un
ion Telegraph Company that you rep
resent, are not prepared to present
your caser
A. (Mr. Myers, very much agitated)
T have not had time to prepare my
self. I have nothing more to say.'
And, Whereas, It was apparent to the
said committee on railroads and tele
graph that the said Western Union
Telegraph Co. and Its said attorney.
were seeking to delay the consideration
of the said measure by said committee.
not for the reasons assigned by the
said attorney, but for the reasons stat
ed by the senator of the second sena
torial district of Florida, to wit: m
order that said measure might be de
laved in reaching the house. In the
hope that it might die on a congested
calendar: and
Whereas, the Hon. R. R. Tomlln,
chairman of the said committee, then
and there stated, after the presenta
tion of said matters and things as
aforesaid that It had been the intention
before convening said committee, to
postpone the consideration of the said
measure, in the Interest of fairness,
but that it being made apparent to him
that the said Western Union Telegraph
Company and its said attorney, were
prepared, having been engaged in
fights of this character in a number of
states for a number of years, that he
saw no reason for any delay; where
upon, a motion was made and adopted
by the committee taking up said meas
ure for immediate consideration; and.
Whereas, the chairman of said com
mittee stated to the eaid representative
of the said Western-Union Telegraph
Company and Its attorney that the
committee would be glad to hear any
arguments they might have to offer
against said measure; and.
Whereas, the said Fred T. Myers,
Esq- declined to make any presenta
tion In behalf of the eaid Western Un
ion Telegraph Company, and withdrew
from the room in company with the
said lobbyist, Mr. Warde; and.
Whereas, the said committee, alter
hearing argument in favor of tne
measure by the Senator from the sec
ond senatorial district of Florida, care
fully considered said measure, ana
unanimously recommended that It be
passed; and.
Whereas. "The Flonaa Times- un
ion." in its issue of Sunday, April 13th,
under the headline "MENTAL. AN
TOATBSTS." impugning the Integrity
and fairness of said committee; and,
whereas, the report in said news
paper, under the head lines aforesaid.
is a base fabrication, in mat wb
charge is made that the Western
Union Telegraph Company was given
no opportunity to be heard; and.
Whereas, said report as pu.Dusnea m
the Times-Union as aforesaid, was
either manufactured out of whole
cloth, or written upon information fur
nished second hand, no representatives
of any newspaper being present at
said committee meeting, excepting the
representative of Dixie, in spite or tne
fiirt that nubile notice of said meeting
had been given the day previous and
said meetlnr was open to the pudiic
under the rules of the house; and.
Whereas, said - garoiea, misieaaing
and false report seriously reflects upon
the fairness of every member of said
committee; and
Whereas, if the representative of
said paper had been present and pub
lished the facts, it would have been ap
parent to the public that the Western
Union Telegraph Company sought to
deceive said committee and to delay
action by said committee and the
house for a sinister purpose, their
application for delay being a palpable
subterfuge looking to the defeat of the
bill by causing it to die'on a congested
calendar; now, therefore.
Be it Resolved by the house of rep
resentatives of the state of Florida
that this house resents the Imputation
made against the members of this
house constituting the committee on
railroads and telegraph, as published
in the Times-Union of Jacksonville,
Florida, a newspaper owned, controlled
and dominated by the railroads and
other corporation interests in Flor
ida as appears by the official records
of the railroad commission of Flor
ida, and as further appears by the rec
ords of the third assistant postmaster
general, and we take this solemn, pub
lic and official opportunity to warn the
people of Florida against the false,
misleading reports of this poisonous
sheet, which seeks to destroy the con
fidence of the people of Florida in their
trusted and faithful representatives
whenever such representatives do not
obey the dictation of the special inter
ests; and
Be it Further Resolved, That the
representatives of the press are hereby
warned that this house win not toler
ate false, garbled or misleading reports
of the proceedings of this house, or its
committees under penalty of expulsion
of the offending press representative
from the floor of this house for the re
mainder of this session of the legisla
ture; and,
Be it Further Resolved. That the
chairman of each committee of this
house be instructed to cause a report
of the proceedings of each committee
to be kept; and
Be It Further Resolved, That we
hereby endorse the action- of the com
mittee on railroads and telegraph in
refusing to permit the representatives
of the Western Union Telegraph Com
pany to delay action on the measure
before mentioned for sinister purposes.
Mr. Farris moved the adoption of
the resolution.

The Pensacola Commercial Asso
ciation, at a recent meeting decided to
call a meeting of the, representatives
from various philanthropical and be
nevolent societies, to form a Travel
ers Aid society.
The commercial association is tak
ing the lead in the establishment of
the Travelers Aid society here. Be
lieving that it will be of great bene
fit to the city.
Such societies, are already in op
eration in the neighboring cities of
New Orleans, Mobile, Montgomery,
Birmingham. Memphis, Chattanooga,
Atlanta, Jacksonville, and Tampa, as
well as in most of the larger cities of
the North and East.
The organization of such a society j
here will make Pensacola a connecting '
link in a chain that is to reach from
one end of the country to the other.
There will be a meeting of delegates
to a Travelers' Aid convention. In At
lanta, on April 28, at which plans for
making the society, national will be
discussed. A number of delegates
will go from Pensacola, Mr. J. P.
Hurley, chief clerk to Mr. E. O. Salt
marsh, has been appointed chairman
of the Pensacola delegation.
The Travelers Aid society is a non
sectarian protective organization,
whose purpose is to protect, and safe
guard travelers, particularly women
and girls, who, by reason of inex
perience, ignorance, or illness are in
need of assistance.
This society provides information,
advise, guidance, and protection to all
travelers. It furnishes railroad and
boat schedule, gives Information con
cerning all hotels, boarding houses,,
places of interest, and amusement 1 1
the city. This service, is free, and
the agents are not allowed to receive
gratuities or fees.
The agent of the society meets trains
to aid and conduct inexperienced or
confused travelers, to their destina
tion in the city. This protection is
continued by co-operation with other
societies, or friends at terminal points,
until the traveler is known to have
reached safely her proper destination.
The travelers aid agent is known by
the official badge.
The Use of the Society.
Every year hundreds of young wom
en and girls, come to the city looking
for a chance to make an honest living.
Many are Inexperienced and ignorant,
and fall an easy prey to persons who
are on the lookout for such travelers.
Such things, do not occur frequently
in a city like Pensacola, but such in
stances have been known, and one
such in six months, is too much, be
sides we believe the kindly and help
ful advice offered by the agent of the
socfety to every new comer will be
much appreciated by the steady in
creased number of winter visitors to
our city.
The work is supported entirely by
voluntary contributions and subscrip
tions from philanthropical persons and
organizations. The societies partici
pating in the support of the Travelers
Aid are: "
Commercial Association, B6ard of
Trades, charity organizations, Daugh
