duced Into the next House a bill tor change
the constitution by having the judges and

confirmed by the Senate, a. it was under

now that there will be several of such
bills, though the authors are very re leer t
about the matter.
While everybody admits the necessity
of a change from the present unsaiist.rc
tdry mode, there is yet quite ad versity
of opinion as to the best course to adopt
Hewlett Hall's idea to have the Supreme
Court appoint has many adherents, and
also the plan to have the Governor ap
point. . I
Hon. Ed L. Wight of Albany will intro

There seems to be no doubt that a change
will be made, but reviewing (he
thus far ahead, from all the talk that
can be gathered, the Legislature will vote
again to give its successors the right to
elect these officers.
The Legislature gave way to popular
clamor and made the change a sfrlous
mistake. Now. the politicians who, ler
Ihe I met ten years, have eoene to the
front through the Legislature, want the
old order of things, and it looks as If their
wish will be gratified.

Tallahassee, Fla., June 21.—Later reports
from the fracas at Thomas City Monday
evening between negro excursionists from
Tallahassee and turpentine hands proved
that the trouble was more serious than at
Several of the turpentine negroes were
wounded in the skirmish, five of them se
verely, and it is said that one will die. An
uninterested spectator had his ear grazed
by a bullet and several colored persons
had ctooe calls, balls passing through their
clothing, making slight flesh wounds.
An Idea of the battle that raged for
few minutes may be gathered from the
statement that more than sixty bullets hit
the rear passenger coach.
This matter Is likely to get into the
courts, ah it Is claimed that the fight was
premeditated by the turpentine hands, who
had made open threats that they would
show the Tallahassee darkies how they
could shoot the next time they visited
It is apparent from the number of tur
