520 1 $a Published by the Sun Company from 1907 sometime through 1909, the Tallahassee (FL) Morning Sun [LCCN: sn95047371], a self- declared "Democratic" newspaper, was a continuation of the Tallahassee (FL) Daily Capital [LCCN: sn95026133]. For unknown reasons, the Morning Sun suspended publication in 1908. A weekly edition, known as the Sun [LCCN sn95047216], was also published in Jacksonville (FL). The Morning Sun was edited by Claude L'Engle (1868-1919), a native of Jacksonville and United States Representative for Florida's fourth Congressional district roughly spanning northeast Florida from Jacksonville to Tallahassee from 1913 through 1915. L'Engle also edited the newspaper Dixie [LCCN sn92060426] in Jacksonville from 1910 through approximately 1913 when he retired. Dixie would be criticized for being against free speech. And, it also reflected L'Engle's anti-Catholic feelings. The Morning Sun, which bore the masthead, "If it's right we're for it" on its 1909 issues, was published daily while the Legislature was in session, but did not publish on Mondays other times of the year. And, while the Legislature was in session it covered the Legislature extensively. Of note in 1907 was the disfranchise by both House and Senate bodies of Florida's African-Americans. It also covered naval stores production, an important part of north/northeast Florida's economy at that time. --E. Kesse, University of Florida Digital Library Center.
