High Water Mar
t
1 in Circulation
i The Journals circulation touched
high water mark last month In fact
I It reached the highest average for the
I month ever attained in the history of
r 1 fbe paper and The Journal may bel
pardoned it hopes for somewhat of a
feeling of pride over that fact
t
1 t The detailed statement for the
td Month which is published on this page
tofltay shows exactly how many copies
of the paper were printed on each day
making a total of 101708 copies for
4 the month or an average of 3912
L copies for each day in the month
It This The Journal thinks is a
4 pretty good showing and particularly
as It is more than two times the cir
culation which any other Pensacola
u paper has or ever bad Beginning
with today The Journals circulation
14 will be over 4000 copies and by July 1
t unless all signs fail it will reach
5000 copies
34 Advertisers will find The Journals
circulation statement a particularly In
teresting one It is interesting first
foecftuse of what It shows about tha
papers circulation and it is interest
4L ing second because The Journal is
4r the only Pensacola paper from which
an advertiser has ever been able to
r get a circulation statement of any
3 kind
kindTo
To an advertiser this circulation
statement demonstrates that ha is get
ΒΌ ting more for his money than he ever
got before and it also demonstrates
4 that if he is paying any other pape
within fifty per cent of the rate which
he pays The Journal he is either pay
a ing suoh paper too much or is not pay
ing The Journal enough
I Less than a year ago when The Jour
nal Installed the only perfectingjpress
In this section of the state and with
fne exception the most expensive press
4 in the whole state there were those
If who predicted that The Journal was
t t getting too far ahead of the town and
that in other words the cost of oper
ating so expensive a plant woulf
ri swamp the paper Six weeks ago
when The Journal was elected mem
1 ber of The Associated Press and be
14 gan publishing that telegraphic ser
i vice there were also people who pre
i1 dicted that It would never be able to
U stand the tremendous expepse But
Ill The Journal found its modern per
11 fecting press the best investment ii
I ever made and the press enable it to
make more money last year than it
I had ever made before In the month
of January Associated Press ser
vice has enabled The Journal to put
on nearly 400 more subscribers than it
had in December and those extra sub
r scribers prove whether or not that
latest improvement In The Journal
h pays Now keep an eye out for The
1 Journals circulation statement which
1 mIl be published March 1
I Mr Bingham calls the Journals at
tention to the fact that in the number
1062 which appeared in his communi
cation yesterday the figures were
transposed Published correctly it
would read 1602 The transposition
of the figures does not however af
fect the sense of the article

cities that Sam Jones has designated
as wicked Sam by the way seems

It is npw believed in Washington
that Root and Taft are about neck
and neck in the race for the republi

The Journal is the tourists favorite

DECLARES WAR ON i
ENGLISH SPARROWS
South Florida is beginning to ex
perience trouble with the English spar
row which from an original importa
tion of half a dozen
pairs has spread
over practically the whole country
not only causing immohee damage to
gardens but driving away the native
song birds South Florida papers have
declared war on the little pests and in
a recent issue the Tampa Herald
says
This little pest Is beginning to show
himself about Lake City As a gener
al nuisance he is without a peer He I
must be exterminated and that right
quickly or it will be goodbye to all
our songbirds The English sparrow
can ruin more gardenshe can de
stroy more seedthan any of the
feathered tribe How to get rid of him
in the early sages of the game is
now the question We have heard it
suggested that if the wing and head
were turned over to the city marshal
a small bounty might be pain Right
now it would not take exceeding 25
to clear him out later on it would
cost hundreds of dollars
The matter Is respectfully referred
to our city fathers with the suggestion
that it is worthy of consideration
Lake City Index
The Herald has several times called
attention to this feathered pests atf
vent into Tampa They are here and
are growing more
numerous When
the city becomes infested with tens
ot thousands of them the people will
find what n nuisance they are and it
will then be found that hey will be
hard iQ get rid of A little early pre
vention would prove very valuable ap
plied now
The many objections to the little
pest is very clearly set forth by the
Index

A visit to Pensacola the first of the
week finds the Deep Water City in
the midst of a strenuous prosperity
in which the rule seems to be that
the business men who inserts the
most catchy ad in the columns of
The Daily Journalthe citys popular
dailis the one who for the time
being takes the cake
It is indeed most Interesting and
withal instructive to a newspaper
man to note the progress of The Dally
Journal although there are two daily
papers in the cltya morning and
evening paperThe Journal is the
morning edition and the News the
evening paper one cannot help wond
ering how the News manages to sus
tain itself for ajl the talk a stranger
hears about the city paper it is in
variably of The Journal and seldom
do you hear the News mentioned at
alL Yet it also is a thriving publica
tion well worthy of its adequate
patronage But It Is The Journal that
most prominently and patriotically
represents modern Pensacola and
which has done so much to bring the
deep water city into national and uni
versal prominence
The city is crowded with northern
tourists and winter visitors and pros
pectors and many of these Interested
visitors will perhaps invest In real
estate We conyersed with one who
contemplates putting In machinery for
a valuable and needed manufactory
In fact Pensacola Is on a quiet but
strong boom1fand is grdwing rapid

I More Attention
Should Be Paid to the
Tilling of the Soil
By GEORGE H MAXWELL Executive Chairman National Irrigation
Association
F every man who now works eight hours a day in a factory
I of a smelter could work four hours a day in the factory
I AXD FOUR HOURS A DAY ON HIS OWN ACRE
I OF IRRIGATED LAND he would double his income
j and would insure himself his wife and his children against want when
the days wage stops
But we must have a different system of education from the pres
ent one which trains our children AWAY from the land This
idea is gaining ground
Every child should be made a gardener and a horticulturist The
winter term should be devoted half to books and half to work on
the benches AND THE SUMMER TERM SHOULD BE DE i
VOTED TO AGRICULTURE The boys would learn to build
I
i homes and the girls to care for them
I The evil of our life is not that tho rich are getting richer or the
poor arc getting poorer but it is the lack of cultivation of the soil
No man can oppress a sturdy race of farmers THAT OWN AND I
TILL the land I
i THE LAND IS THE GREATEST RESOURCE OF A NATION OUR
PUBLIC LANDS SHOULD BE SECURELY HELD FOR REAL HOME
MAKERS
There are men who have acquired as was never intended by
congress great tracts of thousands of acres of land without settle
ment and without the building of a single home
These laws are still upon the statute books Moreover the great
live stock interests and the speculators arc intent upon keeping them
there and even upon attempting to secure new land SPECULA
TIVE legislation
If the National Irrigation association had not insisted upon elimi
nating the use of the desert land law the commutation clause of the
homestead law and the timber and stone law under the national irri
gation law all the lands to bo reclaimed by the government would
have been SEIZED BY SPECULATORS and national irriga
tion would have become a stench in the nostrils of the American
people
IF THE PEOPLE DESIRE NATIONAL IRRIGATION WITH ALL ITS
MAGNIFICENT POSSIBILITIES THEY MUST STAND FIRM FOR THE
REPEAL OF ALL LAND LAWS EXCEPT THE HOMESTEAD LAW

THE NEW RULES OF THE
I STREET CAR COMPANY
Editor Pensacola Journal
I In a recent issue of the News under
the heading Unpopular Rule It
I seems to me that the Individual who
wrote the article or caused it to be
I written must be one of those vulgar
I cigarette fiends who always fill the
I rear platforms of the street cars and
blow that vile smoke into the faces
of passengers when getting on or off
If a gentleman smoker can not wait
until he gels off the car which does
not take over thirty minutes to cover
any route in the city why thou lt
him walk J guess the street car com
pany will not miss his fare

WEST FLORIDA DEMANDS
THE NEXT GOVERNOR
Editor Pensacola Journal
I notice several extracts from the
state papers in which they state that
Hon Mr So and So of South Florida
is a candidate for our next governor
This it seems to me is a matter of print
ers ink as everybody in the state
knows whether they acnnowledge it I
or not that West Florida is entitled I
to the next governor and intends to i
have it We have never had one since I
E A Perry of Pensacola was gover
nor of the state and we never had a
better one We have waited patiently
and supported the ticket without a
murmur and now when the time
comes it will be a West Florida man
Escambia count has some as good t
gubernatorial timber as is In the stat j
The writer has in mind two or three
I
men in Pensacola that will just fit the J
governors chair and it will just fit
them I
We dont intend to sit idly by and
see public opinion moulded in that
shape for four years but we must he
pin now to let Florida democrats see
that our demands are first Pensacola
is by far the best seaport in the state I
and West Florida the coming l
and while we are looking up commer
cially our wants must be recognized
politically at least once in twenty I
years CITIZEN

The Savannah News is usually level
headed on public questions but occa c
sionally it tinctures its discussions
with a small bit of prejudice A few
days ago it said
Almost every day there is some
thing in the newspapers about what
Mr Bryan or Mr Taggart has to say
of the future of the democratic party
Has the party turned over all of its
assets hopes ano aspirations to Bryan
and Taggart Have they come Into
possession of the whole outfit They
seem to imagine that they are the I
whole thing in so far as democracy 1
is concerned It may not be long bej
H5J At ojfj I CTJV I Vi c l I r I
somebody else has a voice in the mat
ter
The Herald does not remember to
have seen the claim made by any 01
Mr Bryans friends or by Mr Bryan
himself that he is the whole thing
so far as the emocratic party Is con
cerned However in view of the facj
that in both of his races for the presi I
dency Mr Bryan received a very much
larger vote than that received bj
Judge Parker the Herald believes that
Mr Bryan is entitled to do a consld
orable amount of talking and we be
lieve that he is also entitled to a con
slderable amount of attention The
News was one of those who professed
to believe in the late lamented safe
ana sane brand of democracy It
claimed that Mr Bryan and his ideas
were no longer acceptable to the peo
ple of the country and it joined forces
with others believing the same way
and brought about the nomination oi
Judge Parker The soundness of the
views of the News and its friends as
compared to that of Mr Bryan went
to the test in November Mr Bryan
personally gave his hearty support but
the safe and sane met a more crush
nig defeat than MR Bryan ever met
Of course the News knows all this
without being told by the Herald but
we cannot see how the News can con
tinue to make flings at Mr Bryan Ho
i the biggest and strongest man dem
ocracy has put forward In ten years
and he is therefore entitled to more
respect from his fellow democrats
