SOAP AND SCHOOLS
ARE GREAT CIVILIZERS
The wets are greatly elated because
the British won't let American ships
clear from British ports without at
least half a gallon of brandy for ev
ery hundred ' British subjects in the
steerage. This law was passed in
England many years ago, when the
English and most other people consid
ered brandy a necessary medicine. The
proper thing for American ship own
ers to do is to refuse to allow British
subjects to enter their steerages. This
- country already has too many of the
sort of people who come -over from
Europe in steerages.

There is much good sense in the
following from Collier's Weekly:
Things in Asia Minor have long
been bad Ten 'years ago, when the
Turks quit Macedonia, an able war
correspondent pointed out that they
went back to Asia Minor with the
same carts, tools, clothes and furnish
ings with which they had crossed the
Dardanelles over four hundred years
before. They had learned nothing.
Nobody had taught them.
That whole miserable country
around the eastern end of the Medi
terranean had more people, higher
culture and a better life, some seven
teen centuries back, under the Rom
ans, than it has today. They do a deal
of murdering, but they do not make
their own guns. Civilized people sell
firearms for money to these harriers
and wasters. The first point is to
take away the weapons, stop the sup
ply of cartridges and cannon. If di
plomacy' cannot arrange that, it may.
as well shut up. We did it in the
Philippines.
Second, these people are haters-
dirty haters. They teach their chil
dren hideous ancient grudges and
prolong this insane welter of fire and
blood. The natives of scores of tribes
used to hate and hunt each other , in
the back parts of the Philippines. We
put them to school; had them learn
one language, English, so they could
talk things out together; taught
to wash, work and play baseball. It's
cheaper and kinder.
These Near Eastern peoples -have
all. got to live together. The Chris
tians were never able to keep the
Turks out and the Turks never could
kill off all the Christians. Diplomacy
must drop its silk hats and pourpar
lers and get down to the brass tacks
of schools, white enamel bathtubs and
good soap.
Asia Minor is not our back door,
not our direct responsibility, but our
teachers in the Philippines and our
Red Cross in Central Europe have
proved that some of our folks know
how to carve the heart out of these
problems of miserable savagery. The
present looks like a good time to
start.
Editor Star: In relation to the
charges of "tyranny" and "injustice"
to South Florida as regards the pro
posed constitutional amendment on
apportionment, the first thing to do
is to define South Florida. The north
boundary of Marion and Levy coun
ties has heretofore been-taken as the
north boundary of South Florida. The
prolongation of the line takes in Dixie
and Flagler counties. - Only a small
part of Putnam being south of the
line, Putnam county is placed in
North Florida. The federal census of
1920 places the population of Florida
at 968,470. Guessing the population
of Dixie county at 2000, the popula
tion of North Florida is 516,034, and
under the proposed apportionment it
would have 54 representatives, one
for each 9553 population; South Flor
ida has 452,436 population and would
have 46 representatives, one for each
9835 population.
Lee county having nominated a
representative on a county division
platform, will be divided in 1923, giv
ing South Florida 47 representatives,
one to- 9626, as against one to 9553 in
North Florida.
No "tyranny' 'or "injustice" in that.
As to the senate: Take the counties
which in all justice should have a sep
arate senator Escambia, Jackson,
Gadsden, Suwanee, Duval and Alach
ua, seven in North Florida; and Mar
ion, Volusia, Hillsborough, Pinellas,
Polk, Palm Beach, Dade, Monroe,
eight in South Florida. This list in
cludes all the counties having a pop
ulation of over 18,000. The constitu
tion provides "When any senatorial
district is composed of two or more
counties, the counties of which such
district consists shall not be entirely
separated by any county belonging to
any other district." Nassau county in
North Florida, population 11,240, is
separated from every other county
except Duval, which has a population
of 113,540, by Georgia. Nassau will
have a senator. The population; of
these eight North Florida districts is
280,869, and of these eight South
riorum districts 23,4z. - lhere is
Palm Beach, Pinellas, St. Lucie, Char- ?
lotte, Seminole, Dixie, Glades, Hardee,
Highlands and Sarasota, with one
representative each, and Lake with
two representatives. '
Due to the failure to reapportion I !
said that much discord was being ;
created in the state. When apportion- '
ed the house limited to 68 representa- j
tives," each county having at least one '
member. I saw the injustice which ,
might prevail against the creation of J
new counties. I therefore drew the i
proposed amendment as it passed the
senate, Senator, Stokes of Escambia I
county inserting before its introduc- i
tion the clause relating to the gov- I
ernor's duties. Senator Campbell of i
Palm Beach county introduced it. It j
passed the senate without amendment.
One senator (From Liberty county)
voted, against it. There was no pro
test from South Florida. As amend
ed in the house it passed the house
with two dissenting votes, one from
Lafayette and one from Hamilton
counties no protest from South Flor
ida. As amended by the house it
passed the senate with two dissenting
votes one from Levy and one from
Lake, South Florida counties.
As drawn by myself and passed by
the senate, so many counties having
the largest population were to have
three representatives, so many coun
ties having the next largest popula
tion wer to have two representatives,
and all the balance one representa
tive each. The house changed this
principle.
Seeing the injustice to the creation
of counties only in the years in which
apportionments were to be made, I
conceived the amendment (ratified in
1900) whereby new counties could be
created in other years. I am there
fore the granddaddy of every county
created since 1887.
This reapportionment constitutional
amendment and the other three pro
posed amendments should be ratified
at the November election.

Nov. 3, 1914. Today was fought the
first great naval battle of the war. The
German Pacific fleet, consisting of six
new, up-to-date cruisers, attacked a
British squadron of five vessels.
greatly inferior to the German ships
in range of guns and speed, off the
coast of Chile. The Germans had a
picnic, steaming around the British
and out of range of their guns, mean
while battering them at will. Two
British vessels were sunk, one took
refuge in a Chilean harbor and the
others escaped under the cover of
darkness.
We also fail to see just why the
majority of the people of South Flor
ida should ring in West Florida all
the time. While sometimes it seems
that the representatives in South Flor
ida adisagree about as many times as
the South Florida and West Florida
members disagree and the whole mat
ter seems to be a case of getting ev-
not much "tyranny" or "injustice'
here. The total population of these
sixteen senatorial districts is 564,351.
The population remaining is 404,11.
The average population of the re
maining twenty-two districts is 18,-
369. The following tentatively-nam
ed senatorial districts for South
Florida seems just: Levy, population
9921, and Citrus, 5220; Marion, 23,-
968; Volusia, 23,374; Lake, 12,744, and

28,265; Hillsborough, 98,257; Polk,
33,661; Osceola, 7194; Okeechobee,

18,654; Highlands, Hardee and De
Soto about 20,000; Manatee and Sara
sota,, 17,712; Glades, about 1700; Lee,
9540, and Broward, 5135; Dade, 43,
73; Monroe, 19,550 seventeen South
Florida senatorial districts, with Dix
ie and Flagler in two North Florida
districts. The senate will be increas
ed from 32 to 38 members. South
Florida will gain five or six of these
new senatorial districts. South Flor
ida now has eleven senatorial dis
tricts. There are 61 counties, seven creat
ed in 1921, six in South Florida and
one, in North Florida. If this amend
ment is voted down the next year for
apportionment in 1927, when at the
end of the legislative session there
will be over 68 counties, with at least
one representative to each county.
The number of representatives should
then be reduced to 68 an impossi
bility. Yet the chamber of commerce
of a progressive and intelligent South
Florida county has solemnly declared,
with but one dissenting voice, that "a
fair and equitable reapportionment
of the legislature could and should be
secured for the people of Florida un
der the existing provisions of the con
stitution" in 1927.
Some advocate one senator for each
county. Georgia has 619 more square
miles than Florida and about three
times the population. Georgia now
has 160 counties, its legislature creat
ing several more at each annual ses
sion. It will soon have over 175 coun
ties. Florida will eventually have 175
or more counties. Just think, of 175
Florida state senators, with only 96
in the United States Senate. Georgia
now has 51 senators. None . of its
senatorial districts have less than
three counties.
Under the proposed amendment, if
the legislature fails to make an ap
portionment it is the duty of the gov
ernor to call an extra session, throw
ing the odium of the cost of the ses
sion on the recalcitrant members. Be
sides, as the number of representa
tives is unlilnited, there is not the
motive for refusing to make the ap
portionment. Since the adoption of the present
constitution in 1886, three counties
have been created in North Florida,
Bay, Okaloosa and Union, with one
representative each. As against the
"tyranny" and "injustice" nineteen
counties have been created in South
Florida Broward, Citrus, DeSoto,
Flagler, Lee, Okeechobee, Osceola,
