The Debate at Milligan.
   As was announced in The News last week the editor of the News met Hon. W.M. Davidson of Baker, in a joint debate at Milligan Tuesday night to discuss the question as to which of the two, Hon. Sidney J. Catts or W.V. Knott, was the true Democratic nominee for Governor of the State of Florida.
   Something like two fifty or three hundred people, men, ladies and children, from all sections of the western half of the county were present and the debate commenced at about 8 o’clock and lasted for two hours, each speaker consuming an hour.
   Of course we won’t say which of the two got the best of the argument, but one thing we will say is, that a large majority of the crowd were already for Mr. Catts or else soon got for him after the discussion started, for besides the applause being much greater for the Catts side, something like forty or fifty men came to us immediately after the debate closed and told us that they were for Catts first, last and all the time.  And it was freely predicated by some of the best men of the town, that Catts would carry a large majority in that precinct on the day of the election.

Cox Ferry Bridge Begun.
   Supervisor of the Forest Reserve, Mr. J.F. Eldridge and two of his employees, Messer B.B. McKee and L.L. Bishop, were here yesterday and paid our office a visit.  While here they informed us that the timber had been selected and all arrangements made for the beginning of construction of the $5,000 bridge across the Shoal River at the Cox Crossing, and that Mr. Stewart, the contractor, is now at work on the construction of the bridge.
W.V. Knott In Crestview.
   W.V. Knott, the Supreme Court nominee for governor, addressed a small number of voters here Saturday for a period of something like two hours.  His talk was confined exclusively in trying to tell and explain by a map how it was that he received so many more second choice votes than Mr. Catts did.
   There were some thirty or forty voters present to hear him, out of which number there was only about fifteen Knott men and twenty or twenty-five Catts.
We are closing out our “White Sewing Machines” for twenty dollars-cash with the order.  Everyone guaranteed.
     Fisher & Hamilton, Milton (Adv.)
We are requested to announce that Rev. J.C. Harrison, of Florida Town, will begin a series of meetings at Milligan for the Methodist and Baptist people of that place on Sunday night, November the 5th, and that everybody in Crestview as well as the adjacent territory around, is invited to attend these services and to help make the meeting a good one.

Shall The State Executive Committee Dictate to The People of Florida How They Shall Vote?  We Say Not.
   The State Democratic Committee seems rather disposed to abandon its duties as an executive committee, and resolve itself into a LEGISLATIVE Committee, to lay down the law to the voters.  The CREATURE is becoming superior to its CREATOR.
   The hasty action of the Committee on the 7th instant in declaring W.V. Knott to be the Democratic nominee for Governor, while the contest was still pending before the Supreme Court indicates that the Committee was either partisan, or that it had little regard for the Court.  If the Executive Committee proceeded to determine for itself, in advance of the final action of the Court, who was the rightful nominee, it cannot find fault with the individual voter for exercising the same right.
   And the voter reasons that since the Supreme Court found fraud in Madison County, perpetrated in Mr. Knott’s favor that it must have been done by Mr. Knott’s friends.  Therefore, if Mr. Knott’s friends committed fraud in Madison County, they did it for the purpose of overcoming Mr. Catt’s majority.  Since the fraud in Madison County was not sufficient to overcome the majority and since the Supreme Court decided that some of Mr. Knott’s friends would commit fraud if they had a chance, it seems reasonable that sufficient frauds were committed in other counties to obtain the results aimed at.  It does not seem reasonable that they would run the risk of prosecution for fraud in Madison county and not do what they started out to do.  Therefore, the voter thinks that Mr. Catt’s majority was overcome by fraud, and he does not propose for the Executive Committee to control his individual opinion or his vote.
   The Executive Committee has done things in the past that the voters did not approve of.
   In 1904, Mr. Holloway was nominated by the voters of the Democratic Party, but the Executive Committee put the name of another man on the ticket and while the gentleman whose name was placed on the ticket by the Committee against the regular nominee, was a capable and estimable gentleman, the Primary nominee was elected by a majority of more than 4 to 1.  Even the Republican nominee received a greater vote than the Committee nominee received.
   It will be remembered that the Committee, in 1904, disapproved of what they termed “questionable” methods used to secure a nomination.  They denounced the methods used by the Primary nominee in the prosecution of his campaign and put the name of another gentleman on the ticket, but the people elected the Primary nominee--quite a difference in the position of the Committee then and now.  The Committee now endorses questionable methods , when it endorsed Mr. Knott as a “nominee;”  it even did this while the matter was before Supreme Court, thus, as before stated showing little or no regard for the Court.
   The voters of Florida will repudiate the action of this committee, as they have always done when it overstepped its authority.  The people of Florida are not in the habit of “Kow-Towing” to any boss and will not recognize one now.
   In 1910, as I recall, the Committee took the nomination of Circuit Judges out of the primary, and a storm of protest was raised by the voters that resulted in the primaries
being held under county executive committees in defiance of the action of the State Executive Committee; and I have heard that Chairman Raney of the present State Committee was one of the leaders in defying the action of the State Committee at that time.  If this is true, and I ask Mr. Raney to correct me if it is not, how can he expect the voters to regard the action of the Committee of which he is Chairman when he disregarded the action of the State Committee only six years ago, when they did something he thought was not right?  If the action of the State Committee in 1910 could not bind Mr. Raney how can he expect the action of that same Committee to bind the voters in 1916?  And it is fresh in the memory of all Democrats how, in the early part of this year, the State Executive Committee, in an attempt to disfranchise a large element of the Democratic Party, overstepped the bounds of their authority so far that public sentiment demanded a remission of their action. 
   The average voter will cheerfully recognize and abide by the action of the Committee as long as it continues and “Executive Committee” executing the will of the people, by whom, and for whom it was created; but when it becomes a legislative body prescribing laws to govern the action and conscience of 80,000 voters, it oversteps its authority and the voter will be guided by his own conscience and his own will.

   A large majority of the Democratic voters of Florida believe Mr. Catts was the regular nominee as he was at first declared by the State Canvassing Board.  They further believe that he has not had an honest deal in subsequent proceedings by which Mr. Knott’s vote was raised, and regardless of instruction from the State Committee, they are going to give Catts a square deal in the general election, and elect him by an overwhelming majority.
   There is another thing worthy of attention in the action of the State Committee.  They say that all the Democratic Nominees will be “DRAFTED” into service to meet the foe.  As a matter of fact, the whole thing is for one particular purpose, that is, to aid Mr. Knott.  The interest of the other nominee was not, even remotely, in the mind of this Committee.  There one aim and desire was to help Knott; they propose to call on the Nominees, not to aid the ticket, BUT TO HELP KNOTT, while he at the time the committee acted, was no more the Nominee for Governor than Catts.  Is any one man bigger than the party?  The Committee by this hasty action, has endorsed a man who was not the nominee, but a man who pledged himself to abide by the results of the Primary and bolted the Primary, though a man who has since been declared the Nominee as the results of flagrant frauds committed by Knotts friends.  Who is to manage the headquarters  of this Committee?  We note the name of one--A.B. Small, who was one of Knott’s attorneys and who is reported to have aided in the perpetration of some suspicious things in several counties of the State. 
   Also, we notice the name of one R.E. Davis, who is said to be very active in Mr. Knott’s behalf.  If memory serves me right, this same R.E. Davis was also prominent and active in the support of PALMER AND BUCKNER in 1896, to the opposition to the Great Commoner and Democrat, W.J. Bryan.  It will be noticed that these “Gold Bugs” are supporting Knott, along with Holt, McNance and Bowden, and trying to run the Democratic Party.  I have seen mentioned in the papers with great gusto, the fact that Captain John L. Inglis is for Knott.  While this same Captain Inglis is a fine old gentleman, with many admirable qualities, the rank and file of our Democrats have never endorsed his policies--I mention this not in malice toward these men, but merely to show who it is trying to “read out of the party” those who refuse to support Mr. Knott.  This is a case of the “Tail trying to Wag the Dog” and I don’t think it will succeed.  Who are the Democrats? 
   If the Democratic Party was in any real danger of defeat at the hands of the Republicans, this grandstand play of the Committee would be excusable, but the only danger that exists is the defeat of Mr. Knott, who, as everybody knows, holds a certificate, the result of fraud in the recounts, and which was issued by the Canvassing Board under a peremptory writ of mandamus issued by the Supreme Court.  The certificate Mr. Knott holds was given under DURESS, by the Canvassing Board, and does not represent the will of the Democratic voters of the State.  Catts holds a “first grade” certificate, while Knott holds a “second grade” therefore Catts comes first as FIRST GRADE certificates are more valuable than SECOND GRADE.  THE PEOPLE IS THE COURT OF LAST RESORT.  TO THEM WE APPEAL FOR JUSTICE!

Buy your building material from Fisher & Hamilton, Milton.  They carry a large stock all the time.  Prices right. (Adv.)
W.A.J. Moore of Jacksonville, arrived here yesterday morning and is the guest of Mr. and Mrs. W.R. White.  He is here in the interest of Sunday School work.
Messrs Lauderdale and Larkin of Florala, are here this week doing the plumbing work on L.E. Bowers new store and hotel.
L.E. and J.W. Bowers and W. R. White were visitors to Knox Hill, in Walton County, Sunday.  They were visiting the father of the Bowers boys, whom has been quite sick.
There were a few men in Milligan at the debate who couldn’t behave themselves when the Catts side of the question was being argued, and this is to remind them that it is just such acts as theirs which is turning voters away from Knott every day.
A card from Rev. A.C. Johnson, who is well known throughout Okaloosa County, states that he has moved from Andalusia to Red Level, Ala., where he is now pastoring  Beda, Carolina, Mobley Creek and Bruce Creek churches. He says these are among the best rural district churches in South Ala., and that he is well pleased with the work.  He says that the News is one of the best county papers he ever read, and that he joins its editor when he says hurrah for Catts.
To The Voters of Okaloosa County.
   Through the request of my friends and the voters of my district, I have agreed to make the race for County Commissioner from District 4.
   The following are a few of the reasons which prompted me to make the race:
   First, the treatment which has been meted out to the people of this District at the hands of the present Commissioner, Mr. R.A. Rozier.
   Second, I believe in fair play and a Square Deal, in other words I believe that the people of the county should have the right to rule it, where, as it is now, the Commissioners, regardless of the wishes and petitions of the people, run the county, this assertion has been proven by their acts on at least three different occasions.  So I pledge if elected to be ruled, or governed by the people by voting to give them, what they ask for, regardless of whether it pleases me individually or not.  I have no Court House scrap to make for any special place.  Therefore I claim that I can, and will if elected, be able to serve the people better, more conservatively, and more generally than the man or set of men who is, or totally wrapped up in one certain place getting the Court House and all the good roads, and if a petition is presented by the people it will have my attention and there will be some record made of same.
   I favor good roads, and I think they ought to be built as fast as the financial conditions of the county will permit without running into debt.
   Now if these ideas and principles meet your approval as citizens and voter, I will appreciate your support in the election of November 7th.
   Remember that I am to be voted for or against all over the whole county, if elected, will be under as strong obligation to the people of the whole country as I will be to those in my district, therefore I can will serve them all alike.
Very Respectfully,
G.W. Kilcrease
An Error In List Of Qualified Voters
   On account of negligence of the Registration Office in furnishing us a list of the names of the qualified voters of the County instead of turning over to us a set of books the devil himself couldn’t tell anything about, we have been put to two day’s unnecessary work and trouble with about $15.00 extra expense, trying to get up and publish according to LAW a correct list of qualified voters of Okaloosa County.
   The list as published on pages two and six is incorrect, there being something like three or four hundred more names on these pages than are qualified to vote; but on page five will be found a list of those whom the books show can vote in the general election.
    If you are a voter you had better look over the list and see if your name is there, if not, when you go to the polls on November 7th, you had better carry your registration
certificate and your poll tax receipts for the years of 1914 and 1915.
I, J.W. Kierce, Supervisor of Registration for Okaloosa County, certify that the following list is, to the best of my knowledge and belief, a due list of the qualified voters of each precinct wherein a general election is to be held Nov. 7th, 1916.

Qualifications of President
    “No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident of the United States.”  (Constitution of the United States.)
The editor was a visitor to Milton Sunday, and as might be expected heard more or less discussing and cussing on the Governor’s race.  Right in Milton where the old politicians have been in the saddle for the past twenty years, the crowd is somewhat divided with a small majority supporting Knott, but in conversation with some of the best posted men from all over Santa Rosa county, were told that while Knott carried the county by a considerable majority in the primary, that Mr. Catts would carry it by a small majority this time, which shows conclusively that Mr. Knott is losing ground even in his strong holds.

Frank Clark, who was virtually run out of South Florida when he went down there to speak for Knott is now arranging to come over here in West Florida to try and fool the people of this section of the State.  But that is all right, let him come, he can do nobody any harm, neither will he change a single one of the Catts men, who are 80 per cent in West Florida.
Let the wool hat boys who have to pay their tax and keep this county going take every man’s name who supports the railroad candidate, W.V. Knott, for governor.  As Comptroller, in 1914 he favored the railroads fifty-two thousand dollars worth in taxes.  What will he do if he gets to be Governor?  We have the proof he did this, and can prove it.
Hon. W.H. Mapoles, the editor of the Crestview News, was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. D.H. Melvin of this city Sunday.  Bill” is strictly in his element now as he has a fight on hand in which he is firmly convinced he is in the right and he will come pretty near making some of the other fellows think the same before he is through with it.  He is lining up strongly for Hon. S.J. Catts in the coming election.--Milton Gazette.
When you go to the polls on November 7th, don’t forget to vote for all three of three Constitutional amendments.  They are good and should carry without opposition.
All this talk about the probability of Geo. W. Allen being elected governor is the silliest of rot.  Four years ago the Republican candidate, W.R. O’Neal, polled 2,646 votes.  Allen may double this figure but the Democratic nominee, Hon. Sidney J. Catts, will poll not less than 60,000 votes, while bolter W.V. Knott, will probably poll from 15,000 to 20,000.--Volusia County Journal.
Hugh Sparkman, who edits the Volusia County Journal at Daytona, and who is well known to many people in West Florida as an honest and truthful gentleman, says that a thousand negroes have been qualified to vote in that county for W.V. Knott for Governor.  He says that the white people of the county are stirred with indignation and are organizing in self defense to keep the county form negro officers.  He says that this has turned ever white man in Volusia County against Knott, and well it has.
Hon. Bill Mapoles will join some supporters of Hon. W.V. Knott, in a political debate tonight.  We regret that we could not learn who the Knott man was, and also that we cannot hear the debate for we opine the fur will fly some.--Milton Gazette.
   Yes, the fur flew, so did Knott’s votes, we mean by this Knott’s votes flew away from him and went into the Catts column.  Hon. Bill Davidson was our opponent and considering the subject, or the side he was on, he did very well, but he like Mr. Knott himself when he spoke here Saturday, had nothing to speak on or for.
After straddling the fence for several months as is his accustomed way, Ed Williams who is editing a paper at Bonifay owned by Will Brett, one of the “Tallahassee Ring” pets, who was recently appointed to the office of Convict Inspector, has come out and declared he is for Knott for governor.  Foolish boy?  You have ruined yourself.  In less than a year from today your gravy train which you have had for the past eight or nine years as the only newspaper in that county, will be taken from you.  We would have
rather bought you a new plant and started a new paper.  Then the people and the true Democrats of that county would have been with you instead of against you.
Says Catts Will Carry 44 Counties.
   Tampa, Fla., Oct. 26--According to an estimate compiled from reports received in Jacksonville and Tampa headquarters of the Catts Democratic leagues, Sidney J. Catts will carry forty-four of the fifty-two counties of the state of with and estimated majority of 15,000 to 20,000 votes.  This compilation is not from haphazard guessing, but it is made up from reports from Catts organization in each county where only the signatures of members are taken as an indication of how they stand.
   Dr. W.H. Cox, manager of the South Florida headquarters for Mr. Catts has carefully compiled the figures sent in from the various counties and bases his estimates on these reports only.  According to statements made everywhere by George W. Allen the Republican nominee for governor, if he is not elected governor on November 7th that Mr. Catts will.  Mr. Allen has carefully sounded the sentiment in all sections of the state, and from his reports the correctness of the estimates made by Dr. Cox are confirmed.
   It has been learned here that disorganization exists at the headquarters established by a portion of the state Democratic executive committee at Jacksonville, Herbert Felkel who was brought from Tallahassee to Jacksonville to do the publicity work for the committee, threw up his job after two days and returned to Tallahassee in disgust.  Walter McLin son of the former commissioner of agriculture who was brought to Jacksonville to be sent on a speaking tour of the West Florida counties, also resigned after two days and after an argument with B.M. Turner, slapped Turner’s face and knocked him down.
   Never in the history of Florida has a candidate made such a whirlwind campaign as Mr. Catts is making.  No less than twelve teams of speakers are going into every precinct in the state  telling the voters how the certificate of nomination was taken away from Mr. Catts by the courts, how ballot boxes were prostituted and how a prejudiced Democratic state executive committee endorsed Mr. Knott before he had been finally awarded the certificate of nomination and how the committee failed absolutely to give the nominee at the June primary  any assistance in his fight against the attacks of the defeated candidate.
Shall The Negro Rule Volusia Co.?
   During the past few days there have registered in the DeLand Precinct 216 negroes.
   They have registered in droves.
   They have been brought in and their names placed upon the books of the county by or though the influence of one man, the Repubocrat boss of the county, who will vote them as a unit on election day.
   The negroes, together with those already registered, will constitute the balance of power in Volusia County politics.
   Every negro who votes will absolutely kill the vote of one white man.
   They are being registered for a purpose, said to the election of W.V. Knott as governor in case his name and that of Sidney J. Catts both appear upon the official ballot.  Ask the negro who works for you, and if he doesn’t,  he will probably tell you that he intends to
vote for “Mister Knott.”
   Do the white voters of Volusia County intend to permit the Repubocrat boss of the county to kill their votes by the use of the worst class of negro floaters?
   Do the Crackers of Volusia County intent that the precincts of Clifton, Barberville, Osteen, Enterprise and Orange City--that every vote in the precincts shall be nullified by the Repubocrat boss of Volusia County?
   In the DeLand precinct on June 6th last, Sidney J. Catt received 204 votes.  Do those who voted for Catts on June 6 and who expect to vote for him on November 7 intend to permit their votes to be nullified  by the worst element of negro voters and the Repubocrat boss of Volusia County?
   It is up to you gentlemen.
   The News is not a Catts organ.  The writer did not vote for Catts in the June primary; he supported Hudson.  If the negroes today being organized to vote for Catts or any other candidate and nullify  the expressed desires of the better class of citizens, The News would fight just as hard against the scheme as it is now willing to do.
     There are perhaps one dozen of the better element of the negroes--property owners and old timers--who are absolutely owned and controlled by the Repubocrat boss of the county, who will go to the polls and vote as they may see proper--for Knott, or Catts, or Allen, or Mitchell--but they are a negligible quantity.  As a rule, the negro voter will be driven like sheep to the slaughter, and one man will cast nearly 250 votes.
   Is this the kind of government the people of Volusia County want?  Will they permit it?--Derland News.

To The Voters of Okaloosa County
   As probably the most of you know, I was nominated in the primary of June 6, without opposition.  But since that time, on account of the fact that I give in or had raised most all the property valuations in the bay section in accordance with the other valuations of the county, some of my northern friends, who are quite wealthy and own a good deal of property, which has almost escaped taxation heretofore, have become enraged at having to pay their just proportion of taxes and have succeeded in getting a gentleman by the name of W.N. Hartgrove to agree to run as independent Candidate against me, presumably, I suppose for the purpose of having their property valuations reduced back to what they were ten years ago.
   Now, if I had been the only Commissioner who had the property valuations of their district raised a little, I would, and could not, blame these gentlemen from kicking, but that the tax valuation was raised all over the whole county, I can not see wherein I have done anything wrong, for the simple reason that I think the people of the Southern end of the county ought to be willing to tote fair with the people of the balance of the county in the up-keep of he county’s expense
Is This Not a Fair and Square Deal?
   I think it is especially so when you consider that the people of the immediate territory from which Mr. Hartgrove comes have been given more money for road purposes than any other place in my district.
   Now, gentlemen and voters, of Okaloosa County these are the facts in the case, and each of you throughout the county will have to vote for one or the other of us, and if you think I have done the right thing, in trying to equalize the tax burdens of the county I solicit your support and influence at the polls on November the 7th.
If you vote for me and I am re-elected, I will do as I have done in the past, serve the whole county to the best of my ability.
Very Respectfully,
     B.P. EDGE

Up To The Court Of Final Resort
(Miami Metropolis)
   Well, at last the Catts-Knott controversy has been settled; that is, it has been settled as far as the Florida Supreme Court is concerned, and, as was expected the court’s decision was in favor of Knott.  No man in Florida who has kept himself informed on conditions in this state for the past few months has ever doubted for a second but that the Supreme Court would ultimately name W.V. Knott as the nominee for governor, as Mr. Knott himself made the public statement when the recount proceedings first started that the Supreme Court would ultimately give him the nomination.
   The next move will be to carry this case to the court of final resort--the PEOPLE, and the general consensus of opinion is that when this test is made the Supreme Court’s decision will be reversed by a vote that will speak in unmistakable terms the disgust of the honest and true manhood of Florida of the rotten ring methods used by those who had charge of the ballot boxes to defraud Sidney J. Catts of that which was his by all that was fair and just.
   On June 6 the Democratic primary was held in this state, and Mr. Catts’ name was on the ballot with four of the best known public men in Florida.  Mr. Catts was practically unknown, yet when the votes were counted it was found that he had received 260 more than the next highest man--Mr. Knott.  This was a great shock to the Tallahassee ring crowd, and immediately the cry was set up that Mr. Catts and his friends had perpetrated fraud in order to land their man.  Mr. Knott at once set about to have recounts made in a number of counties.  These recounts were made after the ballot boxes had been tampered with by Knott’s henchmen, and naturally, the recount showed big gains for Knotts.
   When the votes were counted on June 6th, which gave Catts a lead of 260 votes, the counting was done by three inspectors and one clerk in every precincts in the state and in the presence of the public where it was impossible to commit fraud even though there was a desire to do so.  The recount was made by Knott’s friends and after the ballot boxes had been in the possession of his friends for weeks, plenty of time to make such changes in the ballots as they desired and the evidence showed that they had been tampered with.  In fact the fraud in Madison County was so palpable that even the Supreme Court would not allow the count to stand and threw out the vote. 
   The contest will be settled on November 7 when the sturdy, honest manhood of Florida will go to the polls with the determination fixed in their minds to right a wrong.  They intend on that day to that justice is done.  They will vote the square deal ticket and by the largest majority ever given any one man in this state, they will elect Sidney J. Catts as their governor.
   They will vote for Catts, not because its Catts, or because of his platform, but because they know that Catts was honestly nominated by the democratic voters in this state, and the people of Florida just naturally believe in fair play and will not endorse the crookedness that has been done by the powers that be to get Knott’s name on the general election ballot.

When John P. Coffin of Johnstown gave $50,000 to the National Prohibition Party campaign, all kinds of nice things were said about him by the state press.  But now that he is supporting Catts for governor he becomes a villain of the worst kind in the columns of the Knott organs.  About November 8th many of these papers are going to awake to the fact that abuse of Catts, Coffin, et al., does not alter the fact that Catts is the Democrat in spite of the Knott bolters and all their abuse.--Volousia County Journal.
