Says Mapoles Should Be Given Full Term

Hon. John P. Stokes, the present State's Attorney, and recognized as one of the best lawyers in Florida, has the following to say about the present County Judge:

Judge J.T. Mapoles, the present County Judge of Okaloosa County is one of the best Judges in the Third Judicial District. All of his decisions are in keeping with the higher courts, and his papers are always made out in proper form and ready to turn over to me the day court convenes, I never have the trouble getting the names of witnesses in Okaloosa County, that I have in other counties in the Circuit. He certainly should be given another term in this important office.

Wants Wealth to Carry its Share of Burden
The Supreme Court of the United States has recently decided that the federal income tax law is valid and enforceable. I am in favor of continuing this law in force and strengthening it if necessary, so that the wealth of country may be required to pay its just proportion of the taxes. The territory within the Third Congressional district is susceptible of great agricultural development and such development is essential to the prosperity and happiness of our people. I am in favor of amending our currency laws so as to assist in financing the farmers without the charge of burdensome rates of interest on loans made to them. Vote for me and I will work and vote for the bills that will be of greatest benefit to the farmers.
J.H. Smithwick.

Crestview 7, Milligan 1
As advertised in The News last week, the Milligan ball team came up Saturday and crossed bats with our boys on the home diamond.

The Milligan team was considerably strengthened with new men -- two from Milton and four from Laurel Hill -- and the game went off in a big league style.
Our boys drew first blood in their half of the second when three men crossed home plate.

In the fifth they scored two more, and in the sixth they scored another.

Milligan made her only score in her half of the seventh when Jordan threw through second in an effort to catch Hooten, who had scored.

Then in the eighth Crestview scored one more.

Milligan rallied in her half of the ninth when they secured two hits in succession, and made a hard effort to score, but there was nothing done.

The features of the game was the pitching of Jordan, and the hitting of Richbourg, who made a single, a triple and a home run in four times up.

A Boost For Kehoe
Westville, Florida, May 8, 1916
Editor The News:
Will you please be kind enough to permit me the use of your valuable space for a discussion of the Congressional race in our District!

Many of my friends are readers of your popular journal and while I claim no special influence in that regard, yet I wish to show why I am supporting the candidacy of Honorable Walter Kehoe in his aspirations for Congressional honors.

I have known him from early manhood and also knew his esteemed father before him. Probably that was one reason why I supported the son in his first political aspiration, and the habit has stuck to me ever since without experiencing any regret therefore, for Walter has never failed to deliver the goods when entrusted to his care.

As State Attorney for this or a former judicial circuit, which comprised all of the territory now embraced in three circuits, with the exception of one county (Calhoun), he never failed to deliver the goods although his salary wasn't more than one-third of the combined salary paid for the three State Attorneys, now representing this same territory. Yet he was ever on hand discharging his duty to the complete satisfaction of every element except evil doer to whom he was a holy horror. He was fearless and fair in the discharge of his duties and guarded against the prosecution just as strenuously as he prosecuted where there was merit in the State's case.

As a practicing attorney since he gave up the State Attorney's office he ranks with the highest legal talent, his services are, and have been in constant demand, whether it was a poor negro that stole a hog or a poor white man charged with local option violation or a bank or a big business man who had become involved in the courts, all over this section they have called on him to represent them and they have been satisfied and in most instances he has been successful in his cases.

One of his opponents, Mr. Smithwick, is advertising himself conspicuously as "the business man's candidate." I confess that I never heard of Mr. Smithwick until he became a candidate for Congressional honors. I understand that he is a lawyer with a college diploma, but I have never heard of him in the courts; I find no court record of his success. I understand that he moved here from Georgia about nine years ago; that he is a good fellow and has a hearty laugh, but further that that I have found no evidence of his great success as a business man.

I have recently read the platform of principles of Mr. Kehoe. I confess my surprise when I read this document. His comprehensive grasp of the Congressional situation as affecting the interest of the common weal, shows not only his intelligent knowledge of facts, but also a brain power and completeness in detail that must win the admiration of every intelligent mind.

The farmers and laborers would have in him an earnest, energetic, enthusiastic and working advocate, something heretofore lacking from our District.

Every voter should read this platform and then realize the importance of having such an able and earnest representative in the halls of Congress.

If we elect Kehoe we will have a Representative who has lived with us and been one of the family, as it were, for thirty-three years, a Representative whom no interests save those of his constituents could control. With his native wit, his resolution of purpose and his indomitable energy we would, indeed, have a Representative in Washington who would represent us with credit to the District and to himself.

It has been said that what the Third District needs is to send a man who does things and gets results. I fully agree with that statement and if the people will consider and analyze the four candidates for Congress and judge the future by the past it seems to me that the answer to that question is "send Kehoe to Congress," which I hope and believe the will do.

Thank you for according me this space to speak a few words in behalf of a friend whom I have known for years, whom I have always found true and whom I believe to be worthy of and well qualified, I am,
With much respect,
W.D. Williams.

J.C. Settles Dies of Heart Failure
Mr. J.C. Settles, who has resided in Crestview for over thirty years, and was about 62 years of age, fell dead in the road Thursday night about 10:30 o'clock as he was returning from town to his home, where he had been to see about his son, who had been fishing that day and remained out a little later than usual.

It is said that Mr. Settles had worked in his field all day and apparently was feeling as well as usual when he left his home to come up town to see about his son. So after allowing plenty of time for him to make the trip, his wife in company with her 14 year old son, started to see what was the matter, and found the dead body lying in the road about half way between the home and town. At first she thought he had fainted, and she remained with him and sent the little boy after help, however, when Dr. DeLacy reached the scene, he pronounced Mr. Settles dead from heart failure. The body was then taken up and carried to his son in laws where an inquest was held and his death accredited to heart failure.

The deceased leaves a wife, two sons, two daughters and one brother to mourn his death.
The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J.B. Ansley and the remains were interred in the Crestview Cemetery in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives.

At the time the Choctawhatchee Reservation was created by the Government, I owned property on Rocky Creek, in Walton County, which property was surrounded, in party, by the land contained in the Reservation. I therefore, have a personal knowledge of the conditions existing there, and know something of the inconveniences to those owning property within the reservation.

Of the Congressional candidates, I am satisfied that I was the first to advocate the abolishment of this Reservation. I am a believer in the preservation of our natural resources, but I do not believe that the Choctawhatchee Reservation is the sort of natural resource that this Government ought to preserve.

It is a great inconvenience to the people living within its boundaries, and if I am elected to Congress, the people of the district may rely on me to do what I can to have the Reservation abolished, and to have the lands contained therein thrown open to homestead.
My particular reason for addressing this letter to the people is this: It has today reached me that my political enemies are circulating the report that if I am elected to Congress, that I will work not only to retain the Choctawhatchee Reservation, but to add to it by the purchase of more land. Of course, this is absolutely untrue, and is no doubt done to injure me with the people living within the Reservation. The report is without foundation, and as I above stated, if I am elected to Congress, the people of the district may rely on me to use my best efforts to abolish the present Reservation.

Cheap Money Rural Credit Bill Passes
Washington, May 15--The rural credit bill, providing for a farm loan board and a system of twelve land banks, passed the house today by a vote of two hundred and ninety-five to ten. A similar measure had already passed the senate and differences will probably be worked out in a conference to be held soon.

Under the terms of the bill, the land banks would loan money to farmers at not more than six per cent interest through the local loan associations on mortgages running from five to thirty-six years. Mortgage would be used by the banks as a basis for farm loan bonds. One principal difference between the two measures, the senate would capitalize each farm loan bank at five hundred thousand and the house at seven hundred and fifty thousand.

Littles is one of the most popular contractors on the Central of Georgia Railroad and makes regular trips from Albany to Florala. He is a great booster of Okaloosa County and has many friends here who are always glad to see him.

From Mr. D. Stuart Gillis
To The Voters of The First Judicial Circuit, Especially to Those of Okaloosa County.

I respectfully announce my candidacy for the office of Circuit Judge and solicit your vote and influence. I am fairly well known to the citizens of that part of Okaloosa which was formerly a part of Walton County. Those who care to investigate as to my qualifications are referred to any of my acquaintances who are fair minded and are capable of judging. I am the candidate of all the people without regard to social rank, commercial standing or religious creed.

Of the many who favor my candidacy I know of none who threatens to spend hundreds dollars in my behalf; I know of no man or set of men advocating my cause because he, or they, expect to have a "friend at court" whose discretion they can control or whose judgment they can sway to defeat or miscarriage of justice. So far as I known, and I hope it is true, the generous support being accorded me is because of a faith in my freedom from bias or prejudice and a belief that, if I were Circuit Judge, all litigants, natural or artificial, would receive the same fair and impartial consideration. If I have the honor of being your next Circuit Judge my constant aim would be to justify that faith.

J.T. Mapoles For County Judge

He is running on his own merits, and not on the demerits of his opponents.

He had rather go down in defeat than to ride into office by misrepresentations and falsehoods hatched up and circulated against others for political purposes. He takes no stock in dirty political tricks.

He stands for the enforcement of the law regardless of the results. If a law is bad it should be repealed, not ignored. He believes in Justice tempered with mercy where mercy is deserving.

He doesn't believe that the sane, sober-thinking men--men who have to bear the burdens of upholding the state and county governments--are ready and willing to turn down a competent and faithful official simply for an experiment.

He will appreciate your vote and influence in the coming primary, and he will, if elected, strive to so fill this important office that the law-abiding, peace-loving and God-fearing voters will have no occasion to regret his election. (Advertisement)

Rastus Rogers Replies to Ephirham Johnson and Ed Washington
Dear Mapoles:
This comes from one of your friends at Holt, I am well aware of the fact that you have not engaged in any logic of this kind.

I had hoped that the County Journal would take the kind suggestions that you gave them last week and cut out this kind of Court House Politics. But I see that they have the same Court House Rot in again this week. As it seems that this is the kind of game that they are determined to play. I think that it would get the answer quicker to play their game with them.

Look the Manuscript over and if you are willing to publish it as an editorial I will see it and call special attention to it, and to the fact that you have let the Journal carry three of these dirty epistles, and that you have remonstrated with them and asked them for clean politics and they have ignored you and persisted in their dirty game. While it is not the best politics, yet it reaches some people and has its effect on them.

It seems that it is the only way that you have of exposing some special interest tricks at Milligan. You know the time is short now, and their game is to poison the people's mind and keep us from getting the required number of signers on our petitions to call for the election. If they can keep it from coming up at the next meeting of the Board of Commissioners, why it will put certain individuals who are candidates to succeed themselves in that office, to where they can be more independent about the matter than they can before the primary.
I am not writing "Non De Plume" to dodge the issue, but just merely giving you a tip that you may use as an editorial if you like.
Your Friend.

Rastus Rogers indorses the good work done by Ephirham Johnson and Ed Washington in their Correspondence School.
Valley of Moab, May 14, 1916

Dear Brudder Johnson:
I'se been taking tips on de glorious work you and Brudder Washington bin doin thru de columns of our gran ole paper.

I'se so glad dat de white folks give us de prominene dat dey knos by rites belongs to us. Its de fust time dat wes evry bin recognized in de papers, but bies your holy life its de fust time wes evry had a paper in de rite plase. We has a lots to be proud bout, we has de best paper an in de best plase to get at de bruddern, you se its dis way, wes in de middle of de east and de west whar we command de situation bofe ways. Wes rite on de yaller dixy line. Yourn and brudder Washington/s correspondence Skule is doin more to enliten de bruddern dan eny thing whats tuk plase yit. Jest kepe de good work goin on, but say don't say so much bout dat Cote house lection yit, ders not enuff of us good citizens got us names on de pa role and we jes cant git scheduled dis go roun, dey closes de pa role in a fu days now and if deyhols dat Cote house lection in dis year wees left caus dey woutn open de pa role eny more dis time, but if dey will jes wate till next year dey hav to open de parole and more of us kin git tickets dan whats got em now, an ders udder improvements dats likely to clame our tention and de more of us what has tickets de better twill be for de gineral good of our raise. De white trash mosly interested in de Cote House lection now, dey wants it to be had dis year but dat will not be best fur us, we jes wudent be in it much now but you jes let wate til next year and open dat pa role again and we will sho em de royal blud in or rase.

By de way I jus want to tel you sumpen, I went to dat Cote House last weke, yes ser I shore did, and de Shirf didn't take me dere neider. You see it wus dis way Ide bin reading yourn and brudder Washington's correspondence Skule in our paper Ide got powerful interested. An I says, Se here Samanthy, I haint bin to dat Cote House town sinse de good ole Red Licker days of long ago, and dey tels me dat deys goin to hav Cote dere dis weke and Ise going up der and se de ole town again. She says now Rastus youse goin up dere and git drunk agin and dey wil put you in de Pyilliun an lock you up, and I says Samanthy you fergit dat big swamp what we use ter hide in whin de white trash impose upon our rites and privilleges, she says yes I members it, and I says wel dat swamp rite dere yit, dey may move de Cote House way frum there, but dey wil never move dat glorious swamp, neider will dey ever crusify de Cosmpolatan sperit of dat Gran ole Town.

Wel brudder Johnson it made dis ole nigger fele yung again, as I walked de golden stretes of dat Sity. It made me think of Bablun, you know we redes in de good buke of life, how after we leves dis wurl of white trash dat wes goin to de holy Sitty of Bablun whar de stretes all paved wid gold, whar de wals al made of jasper, and dat we gwin ter walk dem golden stretes wid jimmy jons to our lips and swing dem ladis roun. Brudder Johnson dat Cote House is rite whar it is, and rite whar it ought ter keep be in. Deres de good swamp lan all roun it, finest plase in de wurl for refreshmints, and de good part bout it, it can't never be moved, it will never be clird up caus it wudent sprout a cow pe. But its der finest park in de wurl. In fare wether and smuthe saling you can park in de open and whin de ruff comes on, and de white trash gits contrary you can park in de swamp. I jes luves it, it has bin sich a confidshal friend all dese years. De grate arkitect of all hils and vallys made it rite whar it is fer de speshal binefit of our rase and sich of de whites as we can aford to clas with. No ser les shore kepe dat Cote House rite whar it air. De Jeriko wals is already trimbling.

By de way dat romines me, aint you a little skered of dat Moses! You members dat udder moses, dat one what led de people in de wilderness wel he got a long wid de white trash mighty good til he got em safe frum dere enemys. Dey wus wilin to be led while dey cud se de danger, but quick as dey got out er site of de enemys de take de bits in dere own teeth and gits em some bras and bilds em a bul yhearlingand follers it, and den dat dere very moses washes his hans of de hole pile er trash. He jes wudent stand fer the bulhediness. And you kno dat bul yearling jes cost dem white fules dere lives, only jes ten of de hole shutinmatch ever crosed yalller river and interted Jeriko, and dey had ter cume de spanyards trale. Yes brudder Johnson we nedes ter be very carful bout pending on dat moses, hes no cullered man's frind, he sticks ter de white trash tu much. You kno he thirtened tu prosacute our paper on a count of yourn and brudder Washington's correspondence skule.

By de way ders a nudder mighty fine thing I larned while in de gran ole sitty do de tempel of judgemint last weke. Its dis way, you kno nowadays we have a grate minny faturnal orders and secret scietys, dere is de A.F.A.M.'s and W.O.W. U's and de K.P.'s and de K.C.'s and de lord knos what else, but up dere dey hav de R.A.R.'s, I don't kno much a bout dis nu sciety, only what brudder Blak Jet tels me, he says dat de goat is rite hard fer de white trash ter ride, but cullered gentelmins git on esy. He says dat de Capin air a white man but dat he has our intrest at hart and dat he gwinter se dat de Cote House lection aint puled off dis year and dat de Capins got private Jack fer political perposes and dat he dont use de jack fer mishlashun perposes tall, but I wus a frade ter risk it, I mought ride a goat, but whin it cumes ter riding a jack I begs ter be xcused. I didnt larn whar de hav minny loges of de R.A.R or not.

De Capn he goes west one nite in every weke, he may to ter bos sume uther loges, cant tel bout dat, Brudder Blak Jet says he is a might fine gintelmin, and dat if it wernt fer him de white trash in de Kounty would pul off dat Cote House lection sumtime dis summer, but dat he knoes dat de white trash aint capable of governin de Kounty, and dat dere is only thre hundred of de cullered gintelmins got dere names od de pa role yit, and dat paniks him on and we cant pay dat pole cat tax, now but dat bizines pikin up and dat we can hav a better chanc next year, and dat he gwinter stan by us.

Sume how arter I got home and talk ter Samanthy bout things in the good ole town of Barly Corn days whar we uster be sweetharts, and as I think of the reserrection of dem good ole times, I kinder wish Ide a jined that R.A.R. bizines, but you kno I aint much of a fraturnaty man. But den you kno we aint had enny of dese here political fraturnatys here tu fore.

Brudder Blak Jet says dat dere aint minny of de white trash blongs tu de R.A.R. only jest a few of de best skimmins whats willin ter stan by de cullered gintelmins and kepe date Cote House lection down, til next year so dat dey can open pa role and let sume moreof cullered gintelmins git a ticket. De Capin he got sume spondoolex, and whin we gits fixt he gwinter tute de jimmy jon and de Cote House lection gwinter cume off, and we will kepe her rite in de same Brandywine town, den de Capin ge gwinter clonize us and den we can tend ter such impruvements as we sees needs tention by law den den de spondulex will be turned luse Brudder Blak Jet's got his wether eye on dis situashion. De Capin not givin de white trash enny inches in dat Cote house town, hes not messin himsef wid em tall. And hers an udder gude impruvemint dat de Capin's gwinter give us whin we gits colanized in de yaller jurdin river sitty, wes gwinter have tu Spanyards Trales, one frum de notf, and one frum de west, and dey gwinter cros on yaller jerdin river bridge.

Wes gwinter run fords on one, and bul yearlin street kars on de udder. De fords will run on gasaline, and de street kars will run on red elex. De fords will have der garage sume whar norf on de trale, but whin de spondoolex be turned luse de street kar garage will be build in de cullered man's paridice.

Yours for putting off de Cote House lection and gittin more cullered gintelmins on de p role, and kepin de Cotehouse whar she air in de finel sho down.
