MRCLUBBS DECLINES
TO BECOME A CANDIDATE
i The ecUnation of Mr A V Clubbs
I
to become tho candidate of the Anti
Primary people for mayor dbes civt
to that highly esteemed gentlemans
good sense and unimpeachable demo
e icracy
r
That the refusal of Mr Clubbs to
rumwas a body blow to the plans of the
AntiPrimary bunch is plainly evident
t from the fact that their organ the
Daily News yesterday refused to pub
BIsb his < notice of withdrawal notwith
tstandingjthefact that it was delivered
at the office ofthe News shortly after
v9 oclock in thewnornlng
The Journal felt sure that it Mr
i01nbbsbecame acandidate for mayor
at all he would do so within the
JWhite Democratic Primary the insti
I
tution of the the party in which he
L has so ions served and which has so
aftCn honoredvhim in the past
4 Mr Clubbs was unquestionably the
I strongest man upon whom the Anti
Primary people < could ave centered
and now that he has refused to become
1 1 their candidate what opposition to th
E
iWhite Primary that may have existed
twill speedily dwindle away
The Journal congratulates Mr
Olnbbs upon his decision and it com
mends his sturdy common sense to the
4 4 consideration of those who are try
c ing to break up the White Primary of
the democraticparty
MAGNITUDE OF
THE STATE OF FLORIDA
c
A recentissue of the StjLouis Star
f contained the following article which
r will undoubtedly do much to correct
any mistaken impression regarding the
Land of Flowers that may exist In the
p
t minds of northern people
t
It is a little singular that Florida
1 tis so misapprehended by the masses
of the people of this country
Few realize the magnitude of the
state or seem to have any aprecia
I tion of its diversified products it is
i enerany looked upon as simply a
rwinter resort for the people of the
north to be taken in as a whole al
cnostIa a day
In the matter of its products in
the minds of many they begin and
rend with the orange whereas the or
ange in comparisor yith her other
t p products 4uts a no overshadowing
4 jfigure
Speaking the extent of the state
Jacksonville is about as far north of
f 4 Miami as it is south of Charlotte N
i < J < about as far north of Key West
4 w as it Is south of Danville Va
1 Ignorance of the extent of IFlorida
leads to very amusing mistakes It
takes over twentyfour hours to go
from Pensacola to Miami while a land
trip from one end of Florida to the
> other is as long as from the lakes
to the gulf
A citizen of Maine en route to the
South may pass through Maine New

greater distance than he would have

UOHN TEMPLE GRAVES
A ONTHE WHITE PRIMARY
C No man in the South is better or
more favorably known than John
f Temple Graves the able and eloquent
h editor of the Atlanta News No man
eIther has given more thought to
t southern problems or is more compe
3 tent to speak with authority on south
4 ern issues than is Mr Graves
L It is interesting therefore to know
Jwhat he has to say in reference to the
White Primary subject which Pen
sacola just now has under full con
sideration In Wednesdays issue of
tho Atlanta News as if in answer al
lkV most to some of the arguments with
i which the AntiPrimary advocates in
this city are now trying to poison the
public mind Mr Graves says
4 We are not willing to lie down any
longer in the presence of the negro
and let policies go away and princl
j pies go hang T > e < ause of his sombre
and shadowy balance of power
P which hovers about us If we cant
divide into two parties we can at
4 least fight out our convictions In the
ranks of our own party and we can
submit to white primarieswhIch are
the last bulwark of free thought arci
h t r t
I the souththe arbitrament of the dif
ferences which separate the real from
the mixed Democracy
And that is just what The News s
doing We are fighting now and w
are going to fight for the kind of
Democracy in which we believe and
in which we know the people believe
We dont care a rip whether you call
it New Democracy or Old Demo
cracy or Definite Democracy
What we want is the real Democracy
Mr Graves was formerly a resident
of Florida and the same conditions
which he depicts so vividly in Geor
gia exist with equal prominence here
Mr Graves could not have said any
thing more applicable to the Pensaco
la situation if ho had actually intend
ed it for this city
DESIRABILITY OF
JAPANESE IMMIGRANTS
There has been considerable discus
sion by the state press of late L
ing the desirability of Japanese Immi
grants a colony of whom recently set
tled at Boca Raton on the east coast
below West Palm Beach where they
are now hard at work developing the
country under the direction of Capt
T M Rickards Regarding their de I
sirability as settlers a recent issue Ofl
the Jacksonville Floridiaa contained
the following
We are doubtless safe In predict
ing that these tillers of Florida soil
will make two blades ofgrass grow
where only one grew before for their
energy tact intelligence and undaunt
ed courage have succeeded to the won
der and admiration of the civilized
world in making five hundred thou
sand Russians run where not even ono
ever ran before
We hare never believed in the policy
of alluring into this state a class of I
immigrants whom experience has
taught Us were doomed to inevitable I
disappointment and ruin We have al
ways contended that it was immeas
urably better to make the surround
ings of those we already had r
and better and that others would sure
ly come
But with these Japanese we have
the very highest type of manhood
that goes to make up both useful ana
successful citizenship
They have brain and brawn and
they have indomitable will and ener
gy They have experience In farm
ing and our climatic conditions are
not unlike their own
People who are willing and expect
to dig their living out of the ground
are the kind we want These are
only dependent upon good judgment
and propitious seasons for what they
live on and they never rob others of
their means of livelihood

GOVERNOR OF COLORADO
f MEANEST MAN IN STATE
I
Memphis CommercialAppeal
q
it7M it h H
In casting about to find the meanest
man in Colorado we have decided to
cast our vote for JF McDonald who
Is now acting as governor of the state
ib the November election Alva Adams
democrat and James F Peabody re
publican were candidates for gover
nor Adams had been governor before
and is a man of the highest character I
Peabody may be cajled the Grand i
I
Duke Serglus of Colorado He is a
man of only one redeeming quality j
namely that of nerve In the election
Adams received a majority of about
11000 votes and was duly installed as
governor Peabody thereupon Institut
ed a contest claiming that if the frau
dulent votes were eliminated he would
have a majority The contest un
fortunately was made before the legis
lature which wag overwhelmingly re I
publican A considerable number of
democratic votes was thrown out
while all the questionable republican
votes were retained When partisan
unscrupulousness had done its worst
Adams still had a lead of over 2000
votes Peabody in the face of this de
manded that the legislature declare
him elected There were several rej
publican legislators honest enough to I
gag at this but not honest enough to I
vote to seat a democrat who had been I
elected Thereupon some rascal sug >
gested that the legislature should seat 1
Peabody with the distinct understand
ing that he should resign and that the i
LieutenantGovernor McDonald should i
become governor This program was I
carried out The actually elected
I
governor Adams promptly wiped his
hands of the whole Ji
bunch of thieves
and retired with the respect of the d
entire state What does the whole
transaction mean It means In the
first place that the republicans in the t
legislature admitted that Peabody had
not been elected It means that they I
affixed their names to a deliberate lie
when they declared him elected It
means that they became participants
in a carefully laid plan to swindle the
man who had been elected and put
in his place a man who had not re
ceived a single vote for governor Iti
means that Peabody himself admits
that he was defeated and had not the
manliness to accept his medicine It i
means that his contest was a bunko I
game pure and simple But while we1 I
may condemn the republican leglslaJ
tors as thieves and Peabody as a high I
war robber we must have an even
profounder contempt for the man Me
Donald who acted the part of the j
fence and received the stolen goods I
If he had had a spark of manliness or
decency he would have indignantly I
declined to be a party to the despi
cable rape of the governorship

7 CANAL COMMISSION f

M i
In view of the fact that the Spooner
Act requires that the Panama Canal
Commission shall consist of seven
men President Roosevelt will not be
able to reduce the membership of that I
body to three commissioners as he
intended but it will not prevent him
from making changes in the commis I
sion as it now stands It is reported
from Washington that this week the
president will call for the resignations
of all the commissioner except two
Burr and Parsons and that he will
appoint new men to fill the vacancies
The sooner a new commission is
created the better it will be for the
government because Mr William E

p on dents who have been looking into
thlngp on the IsthmUfi baVe reported
that graft is running riot in the con
struction work now being done and
I the management of canal affairs as a
result of the incompetency of the
present commission is in a sad state
of demoralization The fact has been
very clearly demonstrated that the
building the canal can not be direct
ed with any measure of success by a
body of men with their headquarters
in Washington and New York thou
sands of miles away
Therefore the president has very
wisely determined to appoint as canal
commissioners only such men as are
I willing to live on the Isthmus and
I give their personal attention to the
construction of the waterway the
purchase of materials and a business
like accounting of all the funds ex
pended in order that the graft and
corruption that wrecked the French
Canal Company may be prevented
What the country desires is a com
mission that will go to Panama with
the Qeterminatlon to undertake the
active management of the great pro
ject and push the work as rapidly as
possible

HUMOROUS COMMENTARY ON
I MR MORENOS WITHDRAWAL
I
Editor Pensacola Journal
I In this mornings paper I notice the
following card from Mr Mansfield
I Moreno
TO THE VOTERS OF PENSACOLA
I Having heretofore announced my
candidacy for the office of city treas
I
urer subject to the primary to be held
i on April 4th I take this means of say
ing that I will not be a candidate at
I that time
i In withdrawing I wish to make It
plain that I am not opposed to the
primary system but do not feel that
I should be bound by the action of
what Is manifestly a very small mIn
ority of the democratic voters of the
city M5 MORENO
Iarch 22 1905
Now really Mansfield olrf boy
throughout the two score years and
three of our mutual friendship and
intimate acquaintance I have always
believed I could fathom the depths of
your most secret thoughts that my
understanding of your very nature
was so acute that none of your tal 1
ents could escape my discernment
but lo and behold how shallow after
all are our powers of perception how
inaccurate sometimes are our esti
mates of human nature Yes during
all the years that have gone before
tho years which sit so lightly upon
your noble brow and yet so heavily
upon overburdened frame I have
been egotlsj enough to believe that
even the leat of your natural endow
ments were familiar to me but again
and again how prone are we in our
moments of weakness to err
But after all Is there not an avenue
of escape for me from the humiliating
chagrin which is consuming me
chagrin consequent to my misconcep
tion of your occult powers In all
earnestness 1 beg of you Mansfield
not to regajftas Impertinence my
criticism tour disregard for an old
true and tried friend in neglecting to
advise him of your possession of those
rare and priceless fts of the proph
ets of old that coming events are to
you as clear as the noonday sun that
as I can recite events of the past so
to you has been given the power of
foresight Into the mysteries of the
future
Perhaps though you are unaware
that the above quoted card would In
dicate that you are possessor of the
great gift of prophesy But It does
for do you not say that you have with
drawn from the treasurership contest
in the WHITE DEMOCRATIC PRI
MARIES for the reason that you
should not be bound by the action of
what is MANIFESTLY A VERY
SMALL MINORITY OF THE DEMO
CRATIC VOTERS OF THE CITY
Were you not gifted with the power
of prophesy or to say the least old
you not believe that you were I am
persuaded that no earthly power could
have Induced you to hazard the above
assurance to you rfriends that a MAN
IFESTLY SMALL MINORITY of the
democratic voters of the city favor
the WHITE PRIMARIES more than
two weeks before the said primaries
are held Your old friend

THE BUSHIDO
Moral DoctrIne of the Samnrai That
Rule In Japan
The bushido means the moral doc
trines of the samurai and they are
obeyed by all the statesmen soldiers
and scholars of Japan of the present
time with as much holy respect as the
Christians reverence for the Bible
and Its teachings In Japan Buddhism
is the popular religion but Buddhist
teachings are not respected by educat
ed men or soldiers In fact most of
them are atheists or agnostics who
do not believe In any religion but the
doctrines of the bushido
The bushido for instance teaches
a man or woman to have the courage to
perform the hara kin If he or she com
mits a serious offense The spirit of
this doctrine Is that the offender should
kill himself Instead of waiting to be
executed by the law which latter is
considered in Japan as one of the most
cowardly thing The bushido also
teaches that the life of a Japanese fa
a gift of the holy mikado and if the
country needs the lives of her people
they should be given gladly for that
is only to return to the mikado what
they have received from him
To die on the battlefield is the only
key for a Japanese to find his way to
his Shinto heaven and the soldiers
who were not killed on the battlefield
are considered unfortunate It Is main
tained in Japan that if a man gives
you a favor or money or pleasure you
should return it with more than what
was given to you Hydesaburo Ohashj
