Tallahassee. June 9. W. O. Wil
liams, of Polk county, a member of
the special committee to investigate
the Btate chemist and the commis
sioner of agriculture, made a minority
report on that investigation this
morning:. The majority report wag
rather placating, but the minority re
pori calls thinf s by the most com
t, monly used rames, giving credit
where the member thought credit was
due and criticising as frankly where
he thought crillcism was due. Th5
report will be Jound in full below:
To the Honorable George II. Wilder,
4 Speaker of the House of Represen
tatives, Tallahassee, llorida.
As a member of the special commit
tee appointed fcy house resolution to
make the Investigation therein direct
ed concerning charges and counter
charges made ay . R. E. Rose, , state
chemist, again t H. W. A. McRae,
commissioner of agriculture, whose
report, aigned by all members of said
committee excel t myself, has this day
been filed, I bg to file my dissent
ing opinion in said matter as fol
lows: "
While a grest mass of testimony
was submitted, and considerable ex
pense incurred by the committee in
its investigation, and necessarily bo
In order to reach fair conclusions, in
my opinion no one material charge
made by the state chemist against the
commissioner of' agriculture was even
partially sustained; In the one in
stance referred to in the majority re
port, namely, the admission to regis
tration by the commissioner of certain
fertilizers, there was an opinion of
the attorney general to the effect
that these products were entitled to
registration uncer the facts as tney
existed, and It would seem unneces
sary for Jthe stite to be put to the1
expense of halng the courts pass
upon the question, as it certainly
would be. should proceedings be
brought and the attorney general's
opinion be sustained.
I concur in tie criticism contained
in the majority report of the pros
ecuting attorney of Duval county,
lion L. D. Howell, and in the recom
mendation that investigation of his
inactivity by made by the governor,
in mv oninion. the house of repre-
DAn(atliraB Vina Vtpen unfairly treated
and the dignity of the body belittled
in having been drawn into a mere
personal difference of opinion, and as
a suggestion to prevent a recurrence,
it would seem to me that legislation
should be had to provide ror tne ap
.iT,t nf th state chemist by the
governor only upon the recommenda
tion Or with tno consent oi mo
missloner of agriculture.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
