PAGE NO. 3 HOT ELECTION IS ON IN PRETTY ORLANDO WOMEN WILL VOTE IN PRIMARY FOR FIRST TIME. Mayor Giles Is Opposed By E. G. Duckworth Community is Badly Divided. ORLANDO, Nov. 10 Orlando is in the throes of the most bitterly con tested election it has ever known to day and the outcome is being watched With breathless interest. The chief interest is in the race for mayor and two commissioners. . Mayor Giles is a candidate for re election and E. G. Duckworth, a well known business man, is opposing him Both candidates and their supporters are putting up a lively campaign and the editors of the two daily papers are pulling hair and calling each other names and making faces back and .forth to the best of their ability; Any one standing on the outside look ing in will have to acknowledge that .they both have heretofore unknown abaility along the lines indicated. Up to the present crucial moment no one who cares for his reputation as a prophet will hazard a guess as to MIAMI STRIKE CALLED OFF. Business Men Take It As Acceptance of Defeat By Unions. MIAMI, Nov. 10 (Special) C. D. Mackey, president of the Miami Puilding Trades Council, announced today that a postponement of the general strike of all union workmen here called for Monday at 8 p. m., had been decided upon at a meeting of labor officials. Postponement of the strike was taken in business cir cles as admission of defeat by labor heads. One strike had been called as a protest against use of "open shop" methods on the Tamiami hotel construction work and after a num ber of firms had been placed on the "unfair" list. One- hundred war veterans have been sworn in as special policemen by Mayor W. P. Smith in anticipation of trouble should the strike be called. the final result of the primary. The usual signs by which the prophets forecast the results of an election are of little value at this time for the reason that hundreds of ladies will cist their first votes and no large number of them have declared their intentions or expressed their opinions as to whether they expect to vote for Giles or Duckworth.

'Crankiest Ship Afloat" Comes to Be Real Peaceable Army Transport. San Francisco. The "devils" have been cnst out of the good ship Great Northern. Chastened by the grim spectacle of war, In which she nobly "did her bit" by transporting 00,000 Yankee soldiers across the Atlantic, the one-time "crankiest ship afloat" came back home a few days ago, obedient to the hand of the youngest commander In the United States navy. He is Charles H. Porta, born in Turin, Italy, thirty-four years ago. His father Is Prof. Albert F. Porta, noted archaeologist, scientist and sun-spot observer. "A ship is just like a grand opera prima donna," he says. "She needs a bit of petting and pampering to keep her in good humor but there's noth ing uncanny about hor. And when she is right boys, how she can sing!" The Great Northern traveled more than 200,000 miles in the coastwise and Flonolulu passenger service before America entered the war. In those days she was forever "stubbing her toe" blundering into pier heads, breaking her machinery and "fussing" generally. At that, she was the fleet est and sweetest craft on the western ocean. Then Uncle Snm shouldered arras and the big "prima donna" of the sea donned a gray uniform and went east as a transport. Coincldentally she droppp:? the nonsense somewhere be tween San Francisco and Hoboken and never went back to look for It. From then on she was all business. Once In the North sea the Great Northern ran afoul of a British patrol boat and lost two of her after com partments, but she gamely struggled Into port with her cargo of about 4,- 000 doughboys, spent a week in dry dock and went back to work. In all she steamed 125,000 miles between America and France during and Im mediately after the war. Just now she is operating as a troop ship between San Francisco and Vla divostok, but rumor says she will soon be back on the Pacific 'passenger run, and that Commander Porta will con tinue to "skipper" her between the mainland and Hawaii. Aviators Must Fly High to Leave Churches Quiet Santa Monica, Cal. Hereaf ter all aviators flying here on Sunday will be banished into the highest clouds between the hours of 10 a. in. and 1 p. m. Thus did the city council de cree, as the result of a protest made by the Rev. W. H. Cor nett of the Presbyterian church. He declared that airplanes traveling in Santa Monica dur ing church hours fly so low that they disturb church services. NOW WALK WITH FRAULEINS Order Forbidding Fraternization by Soldiers is Revoked by MaJ. Gen. Allen. Coblenz. The army regulation pro- hihiting American officers and soldle. J from fraternizing with Germans has been revoked in an order issued by Maj. Gen. Allen. The rule against fraternizing be came effective in December soon after Maj. Gen. Dickson ana the American army of occupation reached the Rhine. The British and French are reported to have lifted their ban several mouths ago. For the last month the regulation in the America area had not been strictly enforced and there has been consider able promenading by American soldiers with German girls. The revocation of the fraternizing order In no way affects the regulation prohibiting American soldiers from marrying German women. DROPS HOHENZOLLERN ARMS Germany Has New Eagle Without Crown; Single Head; Talons Are Red. Berlin. Germany has a new escutch eon, from which the Hohenzollern arms have been eliminated. It consists of a black single-headed eagle on a golden yellow field. The "new" eagle, which has shed Its erstwhile imperial crown and collar, is not a rampant bird and would look sedate enough In Its sitting posture but for the color of its beak, tongue and talons, which are red. Pet Carp a Fishing Prophet. Meadville, Pa. One of the best fish stories of the season comes from Craw ford county, where a mun owns a pet carp. Whenever he desires to go fishing he digs a few angle worms and throws them into the tank occupied by the carp. If the pet fish grabs them, the man takes up his bait and tackle and proceeds to the nearest fishing pluce. If, on the other hand, the carp posses them np, the man stays at home. As a result, this man re turns with a fins catch every time ha makes a trip te his favorite fishing stream, so he says. How's Your Stock of Stationery?

SEC- Ranking Living General of the Con federacy Will Be an Honor Guest. TAMPA, Nov. 10 This city will be the gathering place this week of the twenty-sixth annual convention of the United Daughters of the Confed eracy, of which Miss Mary B. Pop penheim, of Charleston, S. C, is pres ident general. Miss Poppenheim ar rived tonight to prepare for the con vention, the opening session of which will be held Tuesday morning, with the auditorium of the First Presbyte rian church as the gathering place. In the event of the church auditori um proving too small to house the del egates and visitors an event that row appears to be extremely proba ble the sessions will probably be held in the Tampa Bay casino, which will seat nearly 1,500. The dele gates will number about 500, but there will be a large number of other visitors, members of the United Dau ghters of the Confederacy and allied organizations. Already the hotels are reserved almost to the limit, but Tampa members will throw open their homes to the delegates and visitors to whatever extent proves to be neces sary. President Gen. Poppenheim was ac companied to Tampa by her sister, Miss Louise Poppenheim, also of Charleston, and her cousin, Miss Em ma Bauknight of Charleston, who will be page-in-chief of the convention. An interesting figure at the conven tion will be Gen. Evander M. Law, of Bartow, the ranking living Con federate army officer. Gen. Law has several times refused the post of commander-in-chief of the United Con federate Veterans smilingly stating that he is the hanking officer of th3 old army of the Gray, no matter who happens to be elevated to the post of commander of the national organi zation. Gen. Law will extend the welcome of the Florida division, U. C. V., to the convention at the open ing session Tuesday morning. Mrs. Amos H. Norris, of Tampa, president of the Florida division, United Daughters of the Confedera cy will preside the opening day, Owing to the great advance of Tires and Repairs for Automobiles THE AUTO TAXI DRIVERS In the City of Palatka are compelled to adopt the following schedule of Fares commencing November 15th within the city limits: From 7 a. m. to 7 p. m., 35 Cents From 7 p. m. to 7 a. m., 50 Cents YOUNG HEROES AT OXFORD Many Customs and Traditjons of the University Are Likely to Seem Tame to Them.

How shall he dwell upon the squabbles of compartments In ancient Greece, when he 'himself has motored from Salonlkl to Athens In a day, and on to Sparta in the next? Or what will he feel when questioned on his fading mem ories of the irregular verbs? Probably most public school boys are haunted to old age by a dream a terrible nightmare of being "put on" by the old headmaster when they have not taken the trouble to prepare a Une of the passage. It makes no difference that they are more than 50 and the headmaster has long been dead. The horror of the situation remains ap palling, and the dream is far more frequent than any of Freud's Imag inary perversions. The feeling of the soldier returning to the class and lecture room will be much the same, with a sense of futil ity added.

MAN WHO DOESN'T GROW UP Just What Is Wrong With Individual Who Fails to "Keep Up With the Procession." Insufficient occupation and the con sciousness of not being of much use nearly always explain the man who docs not grow up. There may have been a period in his life when ha was n admired ornament of society, when his cleverness was applauded, whon his violent assert ions and rash criti cisms and absurd resentments were listened to as the outpourings of an Interesting and awakening mind and were valued perhaps for some facility in utterance; but the mind has not ma tured, perhaps because It never was forced to grapple with anything vital, and the facility in utterance that was a clinrni In youth hns dwindled with years to peevish fluency In objection, censure ami condemnation. The man who at twenty-five Is still a dabbler, with a faculty for raising a laugh by ills trenchant disparagements of the achievements of grown men, Is likely at sixty to be complaining of the cook ing una the weather, the high priest and the policy of the administration or living only for the purpose of ex pressing his discontent with the uni verse. A man needs time In which to grow up, but if he does not fertilise time with work he will be only the wesd of a man. Youth's Companloa.
