VOL IX-NO. MADISON. FLA., THURSDAY. MAY 26. 1910. $1 A Broward Speaks in Madison. To nn audiunca of about one lain, died people, mostly townspeople, Governpr Napoleon H, Broward,1 'candidate for United States Senator,! spoke i the court house on Monday niorninir,. He was introduced by Col. CUas. E. Divis and lost no lime iu pryotecunicH but went im mediately Into a denial of tlie things alleged against him in the recent speech of Senator Taliaferro deliver ed in Jacksonville. Governor Brow ard was at no time severe, but in a film diepat-sioned manner tore to shreds tbe allegations charged against him by Senator Talia'erro and Con gress Clark. He told of his connec tion with tle Bolles land sale. Show, ed bow, in conjunction with ex "governor Jennings, lie purchased the land from Arthur T. Williams and in turn conveyed it to Bolles, be and Jennings taking their commis sion in lands. Showed that tbe lands go sold were not owned by the State of Florida at the time of the sale but was the property of private par ties or a private corporation. He told of bis having advertised tbe state lands in the everglades for sale , in small tiacta to tbe small purchas er at tbe price of twenty dollars per acre and bow, as governor, be bad succeeded in aiding several thous and small farms to the tillable are of Florida and bow those farms were profiting tbelr owners. The gover nor told how be bad visited Presi dcut Rooeelt and secured for the people of Florida rights which bad been denied Uieiu and for which tbe Florida delegation in Congress bad made no fight. He contended that if he was elected to tbo Senate tbe . people would have a representative who would look after their interests and not tbe interest of the money powers. The governor is a calm, pleasing speaker, earnest atd force ful. He feels tht be is qua'.ifiid to acceptably fill tbe ctllce of Sena tor but freely admitted that be could not take Senaior Taliaferro's place for tbe reason that he was not a smenman of the Taliaferro stripe. In tbe recent primary this county gave a small majority for Taliaferro and the ex-governor evidently feels that Madison county presents flgtU- v ing ground and he lias come to put in his claims. What the result will be, primary day alone will tell, but it is safe to say t'.iat there have been no deflections from the Broward ranks in tbe county and e rather suspect that the vote which L'Engle received in the first primary will go largdy to Broward in the second. The ex-governor has a most "tak ing way" with the people and when he meets a man on the street and pours one of bis good natured broadsides at bim, something is eure to happen. Governor Broward lei I on tbe af ternoon train for Live Oak where lie spoke Monday night. He is on a "whirlwind campaign" and between this and June 7th there will be few sections of the State which will not have received a visit from him. Knowles Hall, tbe handsome build ing belonging to Rollins College at Winter Park, which was totally de stroyed by lire last winter, is to be rebuilt during the coming summer Notice of Teachers Examination- The regular examination for teach. era will be held at tbe High School beginning at 8 o'clock a. m., Tues day, Jane 7th, 1910. , . , G. W. TEDDER,' r . . -v; ., County Superintend !nf . A Coed Suggestion. Since May the lUlli we do not see much agitation of the uood roads proposil!on appearing in print. We only hear now and then ftom s.nne who take a pesnimistie view of the pn position exclaiming: "The Good Roads proposition is forever defeat eel in -Madison county," Hut aiy dear despondent friends, the good mads proposition is not defeated but only the bond issue. That ihe good roads proposition has suffered a material set back on account of the defeat of the bond issue no one will deny; but to say tint good roads is forever defeated is to admit a fact which in reality does not exist uud we hope may never. "A good and safe majority of the voters told by their votes, in un. mistakable terms, tbat they did not watt bouds and if you pressed them ral close for their reasons for op posing bonds, Invariably their re ply was: "We do not wish to create an obligation which we in our l'fe time cannot meet and accomplish." By a little paraphrasing of tbeir reasoning we may arrive at a work ing hypothesis, something like this: "Give us a good substantial plan to work upon; let us pay as we go and leave tbe good roads for our poster ity to enjoy free from bondage. " This scribe, wil as all reason. ing people knows tbat it will cost something and a considerable some thing too to bave good roads. The people express a willingness to con tribute the cost if only the light plan can be formulated, and I be lieve with few exoeption of course, wi'l hail with delight a plan for building and keeping good roads. Just what that right plan is the writer is unable to say, but be be. lieves that it is most unwise to drop tbe subject entirely from public ob eervation now. Long ago I learned not to give up on account of one de feat, but if one plan does not sue. ceed try, try again, and victory will finally come. If we will think good roads and talk good loads sometime we will begin to b'lild good roads. Iu conclusion, allow me to hint a suggestion : as this question is a local question with the people of Madison county and as they do not registei their opposition againet good roads (only against tbe bond isme) would it not be well to call a convention for Madison county, composed of representative men from the various parts of the county, the object of $40.00 Handed to You and a good position with the accept ance.

Write for big Catalogue. which would be the discussion of good roads? first the I est way to obtain the finance and the liest plans of how to work them. A conclusion on these questions could not lie reached at one meeting, but if they were to go at it determined to nc compl sh something there would be good results from such a convention. A bnsis for launching this great en terprise cannot be successfully started in any other manner according to my views for the ideas of many men combined are always better than oue man's plan although he may possess in a measure tbe wiedou of Solomon.
