W i TEE PENS ACOLA JOURNAL, MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 9, 19 HE YILL SI2RVE THE STATE (Continued From P On) rant of wonderful heritage. Br nature I am an optomUt with faith and ad miration for ray government, but that alone will neither, euffice. nor destror the deadly poison of commercial avarice, nor will n preserve and secure for ourselves -and our posterity our fabric of regulated liberty and free dom, whose subject we cannot too cloeely contemplate, without the hor rors of bloodshed by revolts and wars may not cease to recur. Let us now awake and zealously regard and be about our country's call and business! thAt we snail not. like the patriots before the first Caesar, with all our recollections of what has been recorded of Brutus, and of demagogues and designing politicians be swept away with our spirit of liberty and free dom. Lt our posterity and freedom be inflated or float unattended into the harbor of anarchy and despotism, out of which we would come only as Washington and his illustrious fol lowers came by revolution and bloodshed. To avoid this,, that our government may stand Inviolate and to secure individual liberty and pub lic right, we shall put reason in the place of opinion; Intelligence in thu place of passion; patriotism In the place of commercialism, and what is right in the place of what will pay. This alone will preserve and securo to the voters as members of the great Jury the opportunity to pass upon the facts, render a righteous verdict and lead us to peace, liberty and safety. By the example of Brutus we should and shall proSt. We shall find virtue a substance and not merely a name, that those who have watched and may watch our political opera tions may learn that liberty is a. blessing and not a mockery. The whisper of the bribe giver, the corrupt use of money, whether by friends, corporations or trusts, and the dark blots of the anarchist, are -afl What's the use when you can hove ;. POST'' TOASTIES not more baneful or dangerous to our American institutions than the vote catcher, the demagogue, or he who would pay friendly or political debts for personal or selfish reasons without regard for concience or merit and at the ezepense of the government. You are a sovereign citizen. You owe fealty to none but to God. Yours is the right and duty to rigidly ex amine the ca-ndidate and determine for yourself wbeer he comes wltrrtn the rule that is consistent "With the real true "mission and purpose of the principle of our government And then vote for the one you think the best. ": " ' I assume and shall appeal to you, believing that you are and will be a true soldier ef a republic, that you will examine the candidates and their platforms, and then upon the call of duty to your state, without haste or passion. Irrespective of friend, or foe, real or fancied sentiment, . let your own conscience direct your vote and thereby Use and stimulate the noblest virtues and usefulness of American citizenship. By that alone, can you realize and accomplish your country' call and needs and make your Own patriotic intentions effective. Thus conscious, I shall not be moved by the idea that I must go to the United States senate, or that I must win, but rather that I shall be true. The vital issues and problems .of government now before the people I shall, therefore, discuss clearly, with out following vagaries, and by appeal only to your intelligence and patrio tism. By this rule, Washington, Jef ferson were led, though at differe.it times, to harmonious actions and con clusions, and by its use we need no mesage from them nor memoranda ta keep our promles and actions consist ent. Here in Walton county, December 5, 1874 I was born, the son of a farmer, who with my mother left me the in spiration of noble precepts and exam ples. Passing through the common .-'. the Florida Agricultural Col lege In June 1896, awarded me me A. B. diploma and Cumberland Uni versity of Lebanon, Tennessee ,tne 1 I B. in June. 1899, since which time I have practiced law in this my native county. In June, 1900, I was here married and now from that union I am blessed with a wife and six chil dren. In the campaign I shall have no paid workers, either in the field or at tne polls. I shall appreciate and be grate ful for volunteers, as individuals, as editorials, press reports and Just com ments. Such action would be a con sistent dicharge of political duty. I solicit your consideration upon these principles to be published and discussed with my platform in the campaign. By them and by the pre amble of the constitution my plat form shall be measured and be my own heartfelt expressions which I trust have been verified by my public services as military commander, may or and state senator, as well as by my private life here where I was born. By instinct, training and study, I j am an ardent supporter of our form of government, its scheme and fabric, j with its three distinctive, alluring and essential branches: 1. legislative; 2 Judicial; , executive. Separate and coordinate were they conceived and created and jbo must and ehall they remain. Encroachments by : on upon the other, whether openly or stealth ily, should .not be tolerated. Let u then conceive the spirit and purpose of government, the solemnity of our obligations as electors and citisens, emulate our fathers as men, as can didates and as voters and be true to the trust reposed in us by those whose inspired earnestness and supreme sacrifice gave to us our great consti tutional government. You owe more to the state than to the candidate. I solicit your support upon these patriotic principles, and I want to serve, you In the federal sen ate, . no less than you should want the best services. I ask no hasty committals. I am not before you to win so much as to be true to "self and to my government. I shall give you my platform, but I shall not make in It, In the press, or in speech, any statement merely to please you, or catch your vote. I shall appeal to your , intelligence, not to your passion, that we together, may realize and stimulate the noblest virtues of man hood and Useful citizenship and ac complish some real ?ood for Florida and our union of states upon the es tablished principles of regulated lib erty, controlled by law. Upon this alone can our government be perma nent. If you award me this great trust, I promise you my best. I solicit your support and shall esteem it an honor to represent you and our state only when elected by the honest, loyal and voluntary ballots.

He organized the first troop of Boy Scouts In England in 1908. In less than three years there were 1 50.000 Boy Scouts there. The movement nat urally came to America. Here it found two national organizations, somewhat similar in purpose and membership. One was the Woodcraft Indians, led by Ernest Thompson Seton, and the others. Sons of Daniel Boone, led by Dan C. Beard. These two were com bined in the Boy Scouts of America. -The aim of the Boy Scout move ment is in general to supplement the various educational agencies and to promote the ability of boys to do things for themselves and for . oth ers. ' They are taught first aid, life sav ing, tracking, signalling, nature study, swimming, cooking, and other things.
