VOLUSIA TO SLIP
BREVARD A STRIP
SMALL APPENDAGE OF VOLUSIA
COUNTY MAY BE TACKED ONTO
COUNTY LYING TO THE SOUTH
That the little tail end of Volusia
county lying east of Luke Harney and
Puzzle Lake, along the St. Johns river,
is of no particular benefit to Volusia
county, was the opinion of the mem
bers of the hoard of county commis
sioners in session at DcLnnd Monday
evening. This little tail piece of the
county embraces parts of two town
ships and is about six miles in width
at the widest point. It has no roads
and Volusia county has always re
frained from spending much money
in the territory.
A committee from Brevard county
was present at the commissioners'
meeting and asked that Volusia county
raise no objection to the state legis
lature, which convenes next spring, !
operating on the territory and remove :
it from Volusia county and graft it to
Brevard. The Volusia commissioners i
see no objection and a bill will be
prepared for presentation to the legislature.

HEAR MISS WALKER WHISTLE
A number of Massac husetts people
visitors to and residents of Florida
gathered at the Nautilus casino on
Monday for a brief interchange of fe
licitations. No effort was made at
perfecting a Massachusetts organiza
tion, at this time, but an attempt in
that direction may be made later. A
delightful feature of yesterday's meet
ing was the presence of the talented
whistling soloist, Miss Delana Walker,
of Indiana and Daytona Beach, who
favored the company with a number
of charming selections.
Friends of Governor Whitman of
New York, who feel that he would
make good presidential timber, de
clare that his stand on the Public
Service Commission question will help
him greatly throughout the country.
NATIONS AT WAR CANT
WASHINGTON, March 2. That no nation
can change the rules of warfare without the
concurrence of all other nations was the sig
nificant statement by President Wilson, to
day, while discussing the "blockade policy"
of Great Britain and the Allies.
The president made no direct reference to
the action the United States will take, but it
was learned from an official source that the
administration will call upon Great Britain
to define the means by which she proposes
to carry out her decree.
WASHINGTON, March 2. The American
government will protest to Great Britain and
the Allies against their determination to stop
all trade to and from Germany. The form
of the protest was discussed at a cabinet
meeting today. A tentative outline was
drawn, but the administration was silent on
WHOLESALE MASSACRE IN MEXICO CITY TODAY?

GALVESTON, MARCH 2. UNOFFICIAL REPORTS FROM VERA CRUZ

A BLOODY MASSACRE IS IN PROGRESS THERE TODAY.
ON FOOT FOR 600D
ROADS IN COUNTY
FOUR SPECIAL DISTRICTS WILL
PROBABLY BE FORMED, OMIT
TING ONLY COMMISSIONER
Judging from the expression of
opinion at (he meeting of the board
of county commissioners held nt De
hand Monday evening, four good ro:ui
districts will probably be formed in
Volusia county, embracing the entire
county with the exception of Commis
sioner Cade's territory in the north
west part of the county.
The agitation for good roads was
started in the Daytona district and the
spirit seems to have become Infec
tious, and now a movement is under
way to circulate petitions making four
districts and giving the free-holding
voters in each district the opportunity
to vote on the propositions the same
date. Commissioner Cade's district
has ninny miles of road but less tax
able property than any other district
and the sentiment in that district
seems to be against a bond issue.

THIRD DIVISION OF
TO END CAMPAIGN
ARRIVED TODAY WILL HOLD
TWO MEETINGS EX-GOVERNOR
HANLEY, ONE OF THE SPEAK
The iccoiid division of the Flying
Siiuadron of America arrived yester
day and held meetings t 2:30 and
7:30 p. in. nt the Congregational
church. Large audiences .;reeted the
speakers, Dr. Ira l.niiiliilh nnd Dr.
William l Hheriu..:;, on both occa
sions. Traveling with the second division
nre Mr. und Mrs. Fred Butler, whose
i'.HIfty ns musicians u;H much to the
Impressiveness of the giiiherings.
Dr. Sheridan is a lending citizen of
Chicago and prominently known over
the country ns an enemy of the liquor
t iiflle, and ay nn udvi i ate of national
prohibition. His addresses are calcu
lated to have tlie favorrblo effect they
lire designed to produce.
Dr. Lnndrtili, of N ishville, Tenn.,
.who is president of t!:e famous south
ern college for yo.mg women, Ward
Beliuont, spoke to a large audience
Inst night, making a profound impres
sion. He is a captivating talker, and
a humorist whose humorous sallies
combined with the bristling array of
facts, statistics and logical statements
which flow steadily from his mouth
make htm a formidable antagonist of
the alleged dangerous Interests he lias
elected to fight. Here is one of his
"The preacher who has not discov
ered that the saloon Is a bad thing
ought to exchange his clerical robes
for overalls, and go to plowing with a
mule, which would be doubtful society
for the mule!"
Another was this:
"If we church men hud saved all of
the ammunition we have fired at each
other, over water and predestination
and foreordination and apostasy and
apostolic succession and church gov
ernment that will not mean
anything in the world to come If we
had saved all the bullets we have fired
at each other and turned our guns on
the enemy, we'd have had the devil on
the run a long time ago. We are done
now with such fratricidal war and the
saloon must go."
The third and last division of tho
Flying Squadron arrived today, and
meetings are to be held at the same
hours at the same place. Several dis
tinguished gentlemen are included in
the third group, viz., ex-Governor Han
ley of Indiana; Oliver W. Stewart, of
Chicago, a former member of the Illin
ois legislature; J. B. Lewis, of Boston,
also an ex-legislator, of Massachu
setts; Miss Vera K. Mullin, of Indian
apolis, an accomplished singer, will
direct the music.
It is probable that Governor Hanlcy
will speak tonight on "John Barley
corn," two words made world-famous
by Jack London In the story of his
own redemption from the alcoholic
