DURRANCE SAYS CONFERENCE IS GREAT SUCCESS WMSMSMMSW Jacksonville Candidate is Visitor Here on Way from Marianna Meet The Marianna Democratic conference resulted in a revival of faith in the principles of the party and demonstrated to Democrats who were fortunate enough to be there that the spirit of con quest is still evident in the heart of Florida Democracy, according to Charles M. Dunrance, Jackson ville candidate for governor, who was in Tallahassee this morning on his way back east. While here he conferred with friends inter ested in his candidacy. "While there were some good Democrats who were doubtful as to the real purpose of the Marianna conference, those who attended are generally agreed that no selfish purpose was served." Mr. Durrance said. "In my judgment, we are approaching the most important election since the Civil war. In a period of such rapid change, people of the country have become somewhat bewildered and are conscious of the fact that the real leadership of the country has been largely taken from the hands of the statesmen and put into the hands of big industry, we feel the necessity for a declaration of a new independence in this country. "Industry has failed to assume if full responsibility toward labor. The result of this Is that six to seven million people, and this the richest country on earth, find themselves without employment. There is some evidence that the big industrialists on their part realize that they have stabilized caDital without taking into con sideratlon the interest of labor which has made this country great. The principles of the Democratic party as raid down by Jefferson are as vital today as they were when he gave to the people of this country and world a new Land lasting political philosophy. The Democratic party must carry the banner in behalf of the com mon people of this country. There is every evidence that they intend to be heard in 1932. The people of this nation and the state show every evidence of being willing to follow the principles which they have always stood for. The united efforts of the Democrats or this state and nation will reclaim for the people the right to share in the benefits of government and cf the prosperity which should be the right of every man instead of the privilege of a few."

WRIT ASKS FOR EARLY START ON WALTOORIDGE Love Grants Petition from Choctawhatchee River Span Enthusiasts An alternative wrlk of mandamus, directing the state road department to begin construction of a bridge across the Choctawhat chee river on highway number 10 in Walton county by December 8 was granted to petitioners from Walton county last week by Circuit Judge E. C. Love of Quincy. Court action was initiated by W. I. Stinson of DeFuniak Springs, on behalf of interested citizens. Mr. Stinson wras represented by John M. Coe, prominent Pensacola lawyer. Attorney for the plaintiff represented to the court that Walton county had put up $200,000 for the proposed bridge, and that as far back as 1929 the road department hfi included the proejet In its annual budget of construction. It was brought out that the department has since spent about three-fourths of the money advanced by Walton county for the bridge, and that the 1930 and 1931 department budgets each contained the project, but no start has ever been made by the department in having the river bridged. Claim Road Advanced At the time the Choctawhatchee river bridge was first placed in the road department budget, highway number 10 was in the second preferential list, but it was represented to the court that since then other first preferential projects have been completed au tomatically advancing road number 10, insofar as the budgeted bridge is concerned, to the first preferential list. According to plaintiff's attorney, the alternative writ was sought in order to give the road department an opportunity to show by December 8 why construction of the proposed bridge had never been contracted. In event of the department's failure to show cause, the plaintiff will petition the court for a permanent writ, ordering the depart ment to proceed with construe tion. It is said that the writ is the first ever obtained in the state to direct action of the road depart ment on a certain road project and has the effect of taking away from the department discretionary powers which have always governed priority construction projects heretofore. m CAPITALS FLOOR LEADER?
