ALL O.N THE BAND WAGON . The .Brooklyn Citizen says that ''.Bryan's confidence is -justi. tied." The New York Kvening Mail says that "Uryan is not to be despised." The Boston Globe says that "the temper is to let bygones be bygones." The Columbia State says that "when a man can survive defeat as Bryan has done it shows that he is a man of strength." Tom Taggart- says that "it is the greatest ticket ever named." Norinon E. Mack pays that "it is the greatest ticket ever noriii nated and the greatest conven tion ever held." Will J.Conyers, chairman of the New York state committee, says that "it is live wire vs. a cold storage tick et.' The Denver Leader says that the democrats will unite; and p'edicts a landslide. Judg I'arker will support the licU'l ; ditto Judge Oeorge Gray, Yon Yonson will pull off his coat. Watterson will 'pat his paper in the breach and bring in all tl)e disaffected. Bird S. Coler says that. "the ticket could not be better." Murphy says that "the ticket is entirely satisfactory to him." Indeed, all democrats of every stripe and variety are crawling into the band wagon, and in the language of the Rich mond News,, "it is time for party loyalty.' The peoplu's nominee, Dannitte II. Mays, has gained the first d.'cision in the courts. Judge Malone last Thursday decided that the mandamus against the committee would lie and the committee was granted until the 27th inst., to make answer when the case will be heard and de termined upon its merits. Should the decision be favorable to Mr. Mfys and we are of tlie- opinion that it will be the committee will be ordered to canvass the votes for jongress- raau as returned by the inspec tors of election and this being done Mr. Mays will be declared the nominee. It is a moral cer tainty, however, that whatever the decision of Judge Maloue may be, the case will be appeal eJ to the Supreu.e Court, aad aa that tribunal has taken its U3ual recess until October. it is hard ly probable that the matter will be finally adjudicated before the election on November Sri. In the meantime the people are be coming more and more convers ant with the methods adopted by the committee to count Mr. Mays out and make Mr. Kehoe the nominee and they are deter mined to resent emphatically this intrusion of their rights. Just as mi eht have been ex pected, says the Lakeland News, the convict lessees who are get ting rich by grace of the blood money from the " legalized slave trade in thi3 state, are breaking into various papers with inter views in which they admit how awfully tad those Georgians are, but declare there is "notb ing ot the kind in Florida." Granting the truth of this as sertion ar.d it is a big grant it may be said that the present system furnishes an opportuo.it y for such abuses, anil is reason sulficient for abolishing it. The lessees and the papers they pay to blow their hern, picture tie convict camps as delightful summer resorts, but as loi.g as men v. el :or.-: death rather that) n'inain in thm, and ;s lung a such stories of cruelty' and bar barity leak out as ' we are frepjer.t!y rega'ed with.ut will advoat" u.:p.r.g these 1'loriJa Mi-, fr M:i t t ice of the cmh.

We'll he glad to see the distinguished gentlemen and to hear them talk, but real ly, we think they will only waste their time In coming to Florida. With 6even presidential can didates to select from the voters of. the coautry need have no great trouble in choosing which of the seven best suits their ideas of government. F'.orkla will cast ber vote in the Elector al College for the democratic nominees, Bryan and Kern, and trora present indications there will be enough from other States to malte the election of tbese gentlemen sure. Col. Toomer, who is now a citizen of Florida, testified that, he made the neat sum of $170, 000 from dealing in Georgia con victs. In this day and time the possession of money in large chunks.excuses almost anything and possibly, to some, it may excuse those responsible tor the horrible punishment and inhu manity practiced by the convict lessees of Georgia upon their helpless charges, but jist as sure as they live, a day of reck oning is coming to them.
