Tbe Jacksonville Metropolis
of last Saturday wag a "bum
tner" both as to size and qual
ity. Eighty pages were Includ
d in the issue of that date and
with tbe immense circulation of
tbe paper it is safe to say that
many tons of white paper were
consumed in placing the paper
in the bands of its patrons.

Ex-Sonator Chandler of New
Hampshire is out with a new
religion, lie claims we will in
habit one of the countless mil
lions of stars after we leave
this earth, and during our resi
dence there will have a full con

The gentleman may ht? correct

to test th !r.:'. h of his theory.
The city of Jacksonville con
tinues to grow aud expand. By
the latest city directory the
population of the city is' shown
to be more than sixty thousand.
Claims are made that before the
year 1012 comes around Jack
sonville will have a population
of at least one hundred thous
ands. If push, enterprise and
progress can accomplish it the
prophecy will be more than ful
filled. Director North of thecensus
bureau, has estimated the. cost
of taking the next census, in
1910, at thirteen millions, in
round numbers, which prompts
the venerable editor of tbe Bar
tow Courier-lntorraant to sug
gest that, "no one need be
troubled in this case by the fact
that thirteen is an unlucky
number, as by the time the job
is done it will probably cost
double that amount "
All space required will be fur
nished free by the management
of the Jacksonville Exposition
next month to counties desiring
to make display of couuty pro
ducts. Wouldn't it be a sight
worth seeing if Madison county
would only send down a Jot of
ber field products, such as Sea
Island cotton, corn, pinders,
tobacco, etc.? The attentiou
of home 6eekers would be di
rected to this county and our
iaagnifl:ent farming lands.
Can't we have an exhibit?
The Amtli Florida Sentinel of
Orlando lias the following food
alv.ee iu regard to home-build
By all means build a home
and bU'ld it now. Probably you
will never be able to build it
cheaper. Ke.il estate is rapidly
advancing iu value, and build
inir material is fully keeping
pace w, .i it.
Building right now may mean
self sacrifice, sorrow, labor and
care, but the more it costs in
these respects the more valuable
it is. You cannot value a home
by dollars and cent9, but by
memories which cling to every
part of it. The kindness of a.
neighbor is manifested here. and
some self sacrifice of kindred is
shown there. These are the
things which make a home, and
it is with real pride that you
can look upon the completed
work. It may be humble but
it is yours; it is your contribu
tion to tbe world, and its value
is not to be measured in dollars
and cents. It binds you tbe
more closely to your people and
gives you a personal interest io
legislation and legislators; and,
while yours may not be the
home pointed out as a repre
sentative of the progress of the
town, it is the one best worthy
to represent it.
Build you a home, for as long
. s yi. u are a renter or a boarder

The Washington Post of last
Saturday contains the an
nouncement that Wilkinson Call
will be a candidate for Senator
from Florida before the lesris-
ature next spring and that he
will ask for the position ia a
Taft platform. The poor old
man seems to have ljst not on-
:.U st.viig democratic princi-
es o; other days but Ins good
ense as well. The idea of ask
a Florida legislature, solid
ly democratic and pledged by
the Stale p-imary to vote for
Duncan U. Fletcher as Senator,
to elect a Tatt republican. Ii
is sad to ee a man, such as Call
h.ia been in Florida, decsending
rapidly and emphatically from
his high position.
So far as the criminal laws are
concerned, the Supreme Cjit
of Florida is "small potatoes,'
says the Tampa Tribune. Al
though composed of men reput
ed as able lawyers and students
of the law and its interpretation
and application, men above
partisan or factional considera
lions, this august body must
bow in unavoidable submission
to the Pardon Board, composed
of men who are neither lawyers
nor scholars, but who set aside
ludgments of the Supreme Court
with all the assurance and ease
We'l, now, the
Board got very busy
and as a result ot its
tv-two cases were
last week
labors fif
considered and fifty of the number were
pardoned, conditionally, and
otherwise. That is somewhat
of a record even for the Board
of Pardons of the great State
of Florida. The question is
pertinent: What is the neces
sity for courts? Why not save
expense and time and tbe feel
ings of criminals by permitting
the Pardoning Board to adjudi
cate all cases first hand

to know that since lie has be
come a republican he has seen a
new light and now abhors it as
the practical overthrow of the
constitution of the I'nited States
and of the State ol Florida" and
"a disfranchisement of the law
fully qualified voters of the
State." In'au interview givea
in the Washington Post he uses
these words aud gives them
point by this denunciation:
The primary system sought to
be established by law 'in the
.Si at of Florida effectually dis
franchises a majority of the
white people of the State and
the entire negro population."
