BUILD THE HOTEL OR GIVE
PENSACOLA A BLACK EYEWHICH
One of the chief workers and most successful men in securing signa
tures for stock in the corporation to ouild the proposed modern fireproof
hotel in Pensacola has announced that unless the 150000 needed Is signer
for by the tlmo the meeting nest Tuesday night adjourns howill quit
work on the hotel
He and others have subscribed 13000 conditional upon the necessary
150000 being signed up by Tuesday night f it be not hen this 13000 is
lost and the fund drops tack to the 101100 signed for up to last Thurs
day plus tMr Knowless additional 5000 if needed and the subscriptions
secured lnoe last Thursday These we understand aggregate about 5000
perhaps anore but we use the lower estimate as stronger
In other words if 26000 In round figures be subscribed for stock be
tween now and next Tuesday night the hotel will be toullt < a modern fire
proof note with a tenant for 15 years who will pay taxes anI insurance
and 6 per cent interest a year on the total property investment of 350000
of which 200000 is to be raised fey first mortgage bonds and 150000 by
e bsc pflons for stock at par
Tho prospectivetenant is easily the most notable hotel manager in the
South His management of the Cawthcn hotel at TMJrfbile has given fame
to Mobile He purposes < to have here a hotel as fine as the Cawtihon and
k furnish It as finely It not mere finely He can not guarantee to make
the management better than at the Cawthon ibut he will be here six months
of every year dividing his ipersonal time ana attention between Mobile and
Pensacola
I dont want any of it said a Mobileman rciho was approached as a
possible sirbscriber to the stock of the local hotel Its a good thing ana
especially good for Pensacola but as a man interested in Mobile you can
tot expect me to put money into anything that would take Charley Hervey
away from hero half his time He Is too valuable a citizen
rrhat is ihow BIbbnians think of Hervey because of the hotel he oper
ates in Mobile and the way he Is heart and soul In everything that means
the prosperity and progress of Mobile That is the kind of a citizen that
Pensacola can get along with the hotel and be paid 21000 a year rental
with taxes and insurance on top of it as a special inducement
Tho rpntal Trill be money In the pockets of he people of this city Tie
Insurance will he money In the pockets of Pensacola people The wages
of a large hotel force will be spent here In trade The taxes will ibe wealth
added to the city treasury the county treasury and the state treasury
And on top 0f t1rls i11crc Will < be the money spent about town iby people who
come here and stay at the hotel and there will be more of them than
come to Pensacoja now for the simple reason that Pensacola has not a
single hotel such as ipeople demand nowadays
Rental taxes Insurance hotel pay roll what the lessee spends here
personally and what guests spend In l wrivri1F Be outside money poured
Into Pensacola pockets
Such a hotel as it is proposed to build with home capital for a native
PensacoHan to occupy as tenant for 15 years means that the outside worTl
would no longer say Bum but Best in the south when discussing Pen
eacolas hotel accommodations
Such a hotel would mean that traveling men would 310 longer regard
this city as a place to avoid when possible but as a place to seek out for
Sunday In preference to other cities in this trade territory
Such a hotel would mean that Instead of
generally saying We are
slow In some respects the people of Pensacola could say If you dont
believe iwo are the real thing come an1 see Tvhat sort of a hotel we have
Such a hotel would mean that instead of the reputation or Pensacola
being hurt dally thousands orfUIlfrk 1dI
by unfriendly critics because of the miser
able lack of modern hotel facilities Pensacola would have a friend a
rooter a booster a champion in tman and
o and everyana 1 woman wiho stayed at
or even saw the hotel and every avenue of commerce would eel the
benefit of such a hotel even more than it now feels the farj iry of the Jack
of such a hotel
Its a Jamb upto the men of Pensacolawhether they are going to put
about 26000 in two days tor stock In
up more s at par a legitimate enter
prise with every prospect of success on l witihevery line or business imme
o nSately ienefittcd especially real estate or whether by failure to be intel
Jigently progressivei they are going to give Pensacola a black eye of the
worst sort
No business man can afford not to have such a hotel In Perrsacola
Nb business man can afford not to take stock in a legitimate and
souna
enterprise that will bring a man like Mr Hervey here as a citizen and a
power of progress In the community For Pensacola to fail to raise the
150000 of stock snfbscrlptions under The plan of organization
would be
pitifully foolish to put it mildly
The Tampa Tribune Makes
A Startling Confession
When The Tournal called attention
to the fierce onslaughts that some of
the chief Gilchrist newspaper support
ers were making upon the Primary
System and then asked for informa
tion as to whether or not these views
represented General GHchrists own
sentiments in the matter we had no
Icea that the question would precipitate
such general alarmnot to speak of
the exhibitions of ignorance which
has since been evident among he
GUchrist adherents j
The Tampa Tribune for Instance
rot only exhibits alanm for its candi
date ibut it makes a confession 01
ignorance of his position on the Pri
mary System which is positively start
ling In answering The Journal the
Tribune among other things says
The editorial which gave The Jour
nal such alarm headed The Iniquit
ous Primary System was written
without the slightest regard to Gil
christ what he might think about it
or wihat ho might do alxmt it We
are as ignorant of his opinion as is
jq n > gJ wa q tw aa act maa
toned in this pronouncement from be
ginning to end and the question of hI S
election had nothing whatsoever to do
with it or its production It was In
tended solely as an expression of dis
gust for the rank abuse the primary
system has brought about In Florida
the gross injustice it perpetrates bj
absolutely debarring from aspiration
to Public office every poor man in the
state no matter how conspicuous may
be his intellectual development 3ilt >
qualities of statesmanship and his fit
ness to serve the people
Was ever a confession more slgnifi
cant After denouncing and calling
for the abolition of the Primary Sys
r tern under which a governor is to be
nominated after hailing General Gil
Christ as the Statesman
under whom
as governor the state as to be re
deemed from the clutch of those whr
now advocate the Primary System
after all this the Tribune confesses
Chat on the question of Gilchrists at
titude toward the Primary EWE ARE
AS IGNORANT OF HIS OPINION AS
ISTRE JOURNAL
At the < same time Gilchrists cam
paign manager writes The Journal
that General Gilchrist has taken a
very decided stand on this question
r
Not only is he in favor cf the pri
mary for the election of county state
and municipal office s but he te even
so pronounced in his platform as to
state positively that fn the event he
is governor all Xacancfea to be filled
by appointment shall bo ile4 after a
primary election wherever the pri
mary election is feasible
Now here is a propositisn for you
General Gilchrists campaign man
ager writes that he has talien a very
decided stand en this question and is
very pronounced in his platform
concerning it while at the same time
oils chief newspaper supporter and the
chief AntlPriniary advocate in the
state says it Is absolutely ignorant
of his opinion on the matter
We know of but one precedent or
parallol for such ignorance on a can
didate or a campaign issue When the
committee on resolutions of the St
Louis convention four years ago was
wrestling with the financial plank in
their report Mr Bryan asked Mr
Hill where Judge Parker stood on the
money question and Mr Hill replied
thathe didnt know
Of course everybody knew that
Judge Parkers position on the money
question was identical with that of
his chief advocate in the convention
Mr Hill If it should now develop
that General Gilcihrists position on
the Primary System Is identical with
hat of his chief newspaper supporter
the Tampa Tribune the parallel will
be complete and the cases of Mr
Hill and the Tribune Will go down in
history as the most pronounced ex
amples of ignorance which political
annals afford
The Tribune accuses The Journal
of blending together two of the for
mers editorials for the purpose of
conveying a false impression to the
people of Florida The Journal pub
lished what the Tribune said on both
subjects Gilchrist and the Primary
and if the people of Florida have
got any false impression from that
it is the Tribunes fault not ours
We would suggest however that our
contemporary now get busy and do a
little blending with its candidate for
governor and the AntiPrimary issue
In the meantime we should be de
lighted hear from General Gilchrist I
himself on the subject If he is i
right on it we want to so place him I
before the people of Florida If he
is wrong let its know it now
Business Men Should
Encourage Baseball
The Journals sporting editor has
for some time 1 been endeavoring to
create interest iu the formation of a
sixteam baseball league for West
Florida and Southern Alabama The
irterest seems to have been created
but the league has not yet been
formed
Now The Journal would suggest
that the business men of Pensacola
could profitably interest themselves In
this project A good base ball nine
is one of the most valuable advertise
ments a town can possess It gives
it a place on the map It attracts both
attention and people gd It is one of
the many things that go to make up
a live business community I
The Chamber of Commerce might
discuss tho matter a little at any
event There are a few sports In that
organization who know what baseball
is and they could be appointed on a
cfrrjmittec to look the matter up Will
the organization do it
Frank W Pope the eloquent Jack
sonville lawyer who speaks in Pen
sacola in behalf of General Gilchrist
tomorrow night is a defeated antl
Bryan candidate for national delegate
The people of Florida are for Bryan
and they want only Bryan men sent
to Denver Pope is a good man but
on the wrong side of the house
Which trust was it that beat Mr
Pryans friends in the Florila pri
troaries Who wore the crooks thus
responsible for betraying the masses
New York World via Ocala Banner
Easily answered Mr Bryans
friends were not beat Tie Worlds
inquiry ihowever demonstrates that
no one can beat the World when It
comes to lying
The Jacksonville
Metropolis an
nounces in speaking of the Gilchrist
forces that there is
no lack of cam
paign tunas and the management does
not stand back on expense This will
be interesting to Pensacolas horde or
grafters who have just nnished bleed
Ing the county candidates If SOme
of them dont hit Jacksonville by the
next train after hearing
about It we
miss our guess

EIEEEJ
THAT DEADLY
KEROSENE LAMP
Pensacola Fla CVEay 29 1908
Editor Pensacola Journa
Whole comimoinities arc frequently
horrified when through accident or
wanton carelessness a kerosene lamp
explodes resulting in the serious de
struction of property and human life
In the person of unprotected infants
but neither communities nor Individ
tials take into consideration de
structive influences of a lighted half
extinguished lamp in a tightly closed
3oom occupied iby two or more per
sons an infant or two that have
played In the open free air nil the
day long crowded now for at leasT
six hours breathing an atmosphere
with all the oxygen destroyer maae
more destructive by the poison fumes
from the lamp
Wtih parents so ignorant of hue
laws of health is it any matter of snr
prise that we see so often tine iwMte
hearse with the tiny white coffin
winding its way to the cemetery fol
lowed by weeping parents who look
upon their bereavement as an interfer
ence of Providence intead of the re
sult of their violation of one of the
most farTeaching laws that govern
the universe
Many years ago the writer heard a
beautiful song describing the death
scene of a child the refrain In a
pleading voice was
Open wide the window
And let 4ihe angels in
How often does the pleading in the
song come to the writer when the
flickering glare of a midnight lamp
shows through window that permits
neither the entry nor outgo of of air
to change conditions of the sleeping
child that would if it only knew Iiow
cry OUt j
Open wide the window j
And let the angel in L
The angel of pure lifegiving air I
I do not know the pledges taken 5 > y
the imemToers of the recently organized
Humane Society for the protection
of infants but it would not seem
going beyond the line of obligation or
the violation of domestic usages in
neglectful families for numbers of the
humane society to search out and make
better the conditions of that class of
suffering children
Sanitary inspectors could do much
toward bettering conditions in many
homes If they would make maica
needed suggestIons regarding the ibet
ter and much needed ventilation of
sleeping rooms
It was customary some 12 years
ago for poultry retail dealers to pea
die chickens about the streets with
legs tied and heads down The ta
mane society recognized this as an
act of cruelty and placed a fine of 25
on the practice This had the de
sired result and the dealers carried
their live poultry Jn fcaskets Ever
since corning to Pensacola this cruelty
has been practiced and is not under
restraint today
Another act of cruelty I sometimes
witness in the same the but on four
footed creatures namely confining
small calves in wagons vrtth all their
feet tied together on the way to the
slaughter pen The cruel custom com
pelling a willing faorse to hold his
head erect almost by a check rein
many Inches too short to allow the
BligSiieet comfort should be punished

GRIGGS THANKS VOTERS
To the Democracy of the Third Congressional District of the State of
iPlorida
Notwithstanding the fact that I failed to win out in ony race for con
gress I feel the large and Uttering vote given rae by the good people of
the district is a compliment and
an ihonor of which any man should be
proud When I think of having carried five out of the fourteen counties
which comprise the third congressional district with four candidates in the
race I feel Immensely honored when I refer to the fact that twas in these 1
counties where I was best known that I received toy greatest endorsement
having received a clear majority over all in three of these counties
The goed people of Pensacola and Escambia county gave one nearly
eight hundred votes and in true appreciation of such an expression of
confidence throughout c ir district J hope that no act of my life shall
ever cause one single voter to regret having given me his vote
With a heart fille1 with cratitude I < take this method thanking you
throughout for this splendid endorsement I am glad that I san say I bear
ill will toward no one and with such a magnificent vote as 1 received al
though failing to win I feel 1thlv honored

looking for months
The unknown negro was stampeded
in the hunt and believing the officers
were after him became desperate and i
endeavored to get away I
heavily regardless of the standing of

Laxity on the part of those In au
