oclock the storm showed itself in no
unmistaken signs and continued until
about midnight last night It is evident
that the storm passed out in the gulf and
Florida has saved deal I
a great by not be
ing in the path of it The weather bureau
first noted this disturbance in the Carib
bean sea last Friday showing the slow
ness which the storm center has traveled i

Congressman Davis and Judge Jennings
DlacuHK State and National Issues
The people of Titusville and vicinity
enjoyed two splendid political addresses
Wednesday night at the opera house given
by our distinguished congressman Hon
R W Davis and our next Democratic
governor Hon W S Jennings The
weather rather unfortunately showed
Home cyclonic symptoms but these did
not deter the people from coming out
The hall was well filled and a large num
ber present were of the fairer sex
On the arrival of the campaign party
in the afternoon they were met at the
railway station by a committee of our
citizens consisting of Mayor Penney
Judge Jones J C Jones C R Stewart
A A Stewart J R Walker and E B
Wager editor of THE STAH who escorted
them to tIe Indian River hotel The
speakers were also accompanied by Mr
K B Raulerson nominee for represent
ative from Brevard county and Dr W
L Hughlett chairman of the county ex
ecutive committee and J F Woolen
member of the congressional committee
forthiscounty and Major E W Peabody
representative of the lesUnion and
Eight oclock had been designated as
the hour for the speaking to commence
Music to lend inspiration patriotic feel
ing and diversion for the occasion was
rendered by the members of Indian
River band
Mayor Penney presided over the meet
ing and first introduced Dr Hughlett
who as chairman of the executive com
mittee made a short introductory ad
dress touching eloquently on Democratic
principles imperialism and the urgent
need of Democrats standing united in
order to win in the national struggle in
Hon W So Jennings was next intro
duced by our worthy mayor and made a
mot interesting address on questions of
state interest He first took up the
question of taxation and assessment and
the necessity of a state board of equali
zation in order to seCUle an equitable
assessment of properties throughout the
respective counties lie had introduced
a bill in the legislature to this effect but
it did not puss people did not seem to
realize the necessity of it but he would
recommend it to the attention of the next
legislature The next question was that
of our public health Our state board of
health Dr Porter and the present law
which has been in force some nine years
has proven most effective and was only
broken into when the marine hospital
service set aside our state law on the plea
of a war with Spain and fever was intro
duced into three ports of this state The
speaker hoped the state law would be up
held and that national legislation would
not be allowed to supplant it
The congested condition of our supreme
court docket was next referred to In
1SUS Florida with a population of LOOOOu
had need of three supreme court judges
Now our population had more than
doubled j litigation had been increased in
several ways by natural causes and rapid
development since ISSU until the freee
of 9 > still ue have only three judges
We now need three more judges The
suggestion made in the Democratic state
platform Judge Jennings most lieartiiy
approves of and it should he adopted as
speedily possible and he will recom
mend that three more supreme court
judges be provided to expedite husiness
The next subject mentioned ua > that
of education one that could not receive
too much consideration Our public
school were declared to be as good as the
public schools of any state even our
colleges and universities wen equal to all
the states save a ftw where the ex
perience of many years had developed a
1 lI hitrh curriculum hut our v > tem
needs improving Too much jwwer i >
now iri ven to the stat > erintendent

A htw should be passed to give m + rr
power to the trustees of > ChMI in order
that they may do something for their
own l M ilities Counties have in luau
intances gone into debt an l it d + nL
seem to work well The tendency to cen
tralizing power has much to du 11 ith the
imperfei system now in forr t
Im conclusion Judiie Itnni referred
to the abominable manner in which the
state convict least system had been man
aged ever since l > > 7i how this lease sys
tem atlccts society taxation and labor
It hud been suggested that convict labor
could be employed to bt advantage on
improving oor public roads but the
speaker said that he had been informed
thin in practice it did not operate that
way he felt that a better plan would In
to lease the convicts to work in phos
