CONVICT BILL IS OPPOS BREAKERS AHEAD FOR GOVERN OR TRAMMELL'S MEASURE, ABOLISHING THE LEASE SYS TEM. BY FRANK i. HUFFAKER. Tallahassee. May 2. Before being adopted, if it is adopted at all. Gov ernor Park Trammell's bill for abol ishing the convict less system, which passed the house Wednesday afternoon by an overwhelming vote, will have to do battle and compare merits with a decidedly strong; bill introduced in the senate by the committee on convicts nnA nrfenna Tl-hilh HtliiinS TO he equable and commonsense In every feature. The committee members who have devoted most time to this bill are! Chairman Lindsay and Senator Y. I. Vaton. both of whom have had wide experience in naval stores operations, in which the Florida convicts are mostly used. The bill provides for the establish ment of a prison farm on the state's lands in Bradford county and makes an appropriation of $100,000 from the present lease to be used in that work. The convicts are divided into two classes or grades, the first grade being composed of able-bodied male eon- REGISTRATION BY THE COU NEARLY ALL NAMES SAID TO HAVE BEEN OMITTED FROM PUBUS4ED UST FOUND IN THE BOOKS AT MEETING LAST NIGHT. The list of qualified electors for the primary of Tuesday, May 6th. as pre pared by Supervieor ' of Registration Frank Maura and printed in The Jour nal yesterday morning, was approved by the city council at n srpecial meet ing: held for that purpose lat night. About twenty-five persons who said their names had been omitted from the list as published yesterday morning were present for the purpose of hav ing their names reinstated, hut after an examination of the books it was found that their names were recorded In the books. Lis-ts containing: a total of about twenty narnes which were said to have been left off the Hat were also pre sented, but on examination of the books It was found that, with the ex ception of about three, all the names were in the books. The lists were re ferred to the registration officer, who was instructed to add to the list the names of those who are qualified electors. Registration Officer Frank Maura, from whose books the names published in The Journal yesterday were fur nished under his direction, told a rep resentative of The Journal after the council meeting that he was unable to say who was responsible for some of the names of qualified voters being omitted from the published list. Validating Act Requested. ' "With reference to the proposed $400,000 bond issue for municipal doclvs and a belt line railroad. Alder man Kugrlemaji, at the rernaest of the board of bond trustees, Introduced a resolution, which was adopted, pro vidnK that the representatives in the legislature from tlu county be re quested to secure the passage of a validating act which will give the three cormmissl oners the power to sign the bonds instead of the mayor, chair man of the board of bond trustees and. the city clerk. This was requested on account of the alder-manic form of government being abolished. Contract Approved.. The contract of the C. H. Turner Construction Company for building; a reservoir at the pumping- station of the city water works was approved. The reservoir will take the place of the standpipe on North Palafox street. Mayor ReilJy presided and Aldermen Oliver. Kugleman, Pfeiffer, Semmes, Renshaw, Rear and Moyer were pres ent. AN EXCITING GAME WITH SCHOOL TEAMS The thrd Trade yesterday defeated the fourth In an exciting game, though it ended In a large srore. The game was on the Xew City diamond. The Batteries for the winners were Oert- rng and Flilghum. and for the losers, Morgan and Ferguson. These teams will again cross bats Monday on the same diamond. The features were the pitching of Oertlng and the batting of both Vaughn and Repper. "Wlcke um pired. POSTPONE ACTION ON THE ALIEN LAND BILL Sacramento, Cal.. May 2. "Fina.1 ac tion by the senate on the anti-alien land law was postponed again today and the measmre will not com up for a vote until next week. ED BY FEW SENATORS LIST APPR ID IC9L viets, and the second of females and infirm hospital subjects. On January 1, 1914, or as soon as possible there after, all convicts of the second grade are to be placed on the prison farm. Leasing to Counties. The bill provides for the abolition of the system not later than four years from next January. Counties will be Riven an opportunity to lease convicts at the same price paid for them by the lessees, the convicts to be used on the public roads. This plan will g-o into effect about the first of July, this year. The commissioners of any eonn ty can make application to the board of state institutions for whatever mim ber of convicts such counties desire to work on the roads, and if the coun ties should not take all the convicts then the board of state institutions can lease the remainder to private parties. Payment for Convicts, The bill further provides that coun ties leasing- oonivcts sh3ll pay per capita per annum the same amount as is paid by private lessees. Thi plan of requiring: the counties to pay such a price for the nvkts is simply a matter of Justice to counties which do not take convicts for road work. A '.lunos u"-iva rrom in nire or con- i IT 3 ; i vw. whether to counties or private lessees, shall go into the state prison fund. From this state prison t-.xr.fl "re w5n appropriated for the year 19f 4 tn SUTO of $90,000 to the state "' ;n jw ereaxrer, rvs as uic :eae fnau rum or tno counties shall continue to take con - victs for road work, the sum of $75.- 000 shall be appropriated. These ap pro priri.'ti on s will be made for the pur pose of continuing improvement work on the prison farm and maintaining the clas sof prisoners put upon Ihe far mfor the purpose of pjparlDg it for the complete abolition of the sys tem. All monies over and above the amounts appropriated for this purpose will be prorated among the counties according to the value of ca xable prop erty turned in each year. Senator Watson Talks.

The scope of his activities was "world-wide. In Oakland he made ar dent but unsuccessful love to Miss Daisy Clfm, superintendent of nurses in an Oakland hospital.

We are up against a fact, not a theory, and the state cannot stand the financial shock of being fake.d to ra-iw a million dollars for the immediate abolition of the lease sys tem." Tax Commission. The bfJl introduced by Senator Cul pepper for the establishment of a state tax commission of three members, who i-haJl be appointed by the govern or by and with the consent of the sen ate, covers a world of territory and should either prove marvelously effec tive in equalizing: taxes, or equally so in allowing: the men to get the "plums" to put thinps over on the state In the matter of expensiveness. Xeedless to say. though, Senator Cul pepper, one of the best men in the up per house, expects long prayed for tax reforms in case the tax commission Is established. If there Is anrthimr that the hill does not allow the tax commissioners to do. from prying: into corporate strong1 boxes to governing- the financial systems of cities and tnwns and coun- ties, it has not yet been found, ac- cording to some critics of fbe measure. commissioners wmM get $3,000 a year each, the secretarr $2,000. a clerk ; 2,000. with tax experts employed ac- rording to the valu, or alleged value, ! of their services. with an absolutely honest and capable tax commission holrHnsr th 1 reina. rh enactment and enforcement "f the teroos of the bill would certainly place the burden of taxation where it belongs, but with a trio of crooks or near-crooks sitting In the seat of Judgment well, let's draw the curtain.

BY FRANK L. HUFFAKER. Tallahassee. May 2. "We have lost the fight to have the woman suffrage amendment submitted to the people but that defeat mean that we have jut besrun to fitfht. and we'll win two years from now." This ultimatum wa given voice to Thursday afternoon by the delegation of prominent Florida woman who hare made two long trips to Tallahassee In behalf of equal citizenship, and there wa a world of determniation' and meaning behind the words. In fact, even legislators who opposed the sub mission of the fiffrfce amendment adrnsit that but few years will pass before Florida women will have the privilege erf voting, and the suffrage "warrlortettes" are determined to wage a campaign for two years that will bring success without fail next time. "I had hoped Florida would distin guish herself by being the first south ern state to vote in favor of eqnai suf frage," said Mrs. Tonise Ieko, charming matron of Jackson vUJe. "However, the fight Is on in earnest now, and the next legislature witl un doubtodly be favorrubie." "The gentlemanly reception a corded even by legislators who are avod- edly opposed to equal suffrage, said Miss Jeannette Rankin, who woa sent to Tallahassee from the national head- quartens of the Kquai Suffrage league at Washington, "certainly speaks well for fhe gentleness and cniva'.ry of the men of Florida. fot one rude word has marred our brief campaign, which i decidedly umrsual. Had a vigorous campaign been, waiged for the past six months, our Ti.use undoubtedly would have won." Read The Journal's Want Ads and Profit thereby.
