Mayor Goodmans
Annual Message
The annual message of Mayor C C
Goodman published in yesterdays
Journal was a commendable docu
ment from start to finish and con
tained recommendations which the in
coming administration would do well
to carry out For Mr Goodman has
evidently made an earnest study of
present conditions in Pensacola juid
the citys requirements which makes
what he says of peculiar force nnd
value
The special recommendations that
the sewerage system be extended with
a special view to draining the Butcher
Pen pond and that the paving work
be pushed rapidly and r
and in such a way as to bear as light
ly as possible upon the taxpayers will
meet with general approval Nor is
the mayors suggestion that a special
operator be employed under the direc
tion of the city electrician to give at
tention to the fire and police alarm
systems to be regarded otherwise than I
as a good one in order to perfect the
systems and raise them to their fullest
value for the protection of the lives
and property of our citizens
The people of our growing city will
also have to meet the question of in
creased expenditures for police pro
tection and sanitation It is true that
during the past year Pensacola bears
fair comparison with any city in the
country with respect to criminal sta
tistics and that a marked improve
ment is shown in health conditions
and decrease of the death rate by
comparison witji the year preceding
Nevertheless it stands to reason that
both the police and health boards in
order to keep pace with community
growth and at the same time main
tain their standard of efficiency will
necessarily require a greater number
of employes and enlarged facilities
which will compel an increased ex
penditure of money
Our city is one of the healthiest
cities in the United States says the
mayor and there is no reason why it
should not become the healthiest with
our natural drainage and as the
sanitary sewer system is now com
pleted the property owners should be
compelled to connect with the same
as rapidly as it is possible for the
work to be done This itself will
greatly reduce the breeding of flies
which are the most common carriers
of infectious and contagious diseases
The Journal is pleased to give em
phasis to the above for it is of the
utmost Importance from a standpoint
of health that these sower connec
tions be made and the accumulation
of superficial filth be entirely done
away with The Enforcement of this
recommendation should be given Im
mediate attention for the health of a
city should be the very first consid
eration of its officers
The people of Pensacola have just
cause for gratification in the result
of the operation of the municipally
owned water works which shows a
fair profit over ajl expenses expenses
which have included even such items
as reduction of plant value through
wear and tear interest on bonds
taxes in fact every cost which enters
into financial statements as made out
for the information and guidance of
ordinary business concerns As stat
ed in the report this is the proper
way to run a municipal plant of any
kind and I know of no other city that
charges the municipal plant with
taxes interest sinking fund and de
preciation which is unquestionably
the only proper course if the truth is
to be arrived at
Mr Goodman will retire from office
with a clean record for honest service
to the people and a constant endeavor
to promote the advance of the city
toward a higher plane of beauty civic
pride financial strength and morality

Wage Earners Rejoice
Wage earners today are rejpicing
over the signing by Governor Draper
of the Hilt n Warren antiloan bill
which was framed with the aim of
regulating the assignment of wages
to usurers The bill puts an end to
the legal assignment of wages for a
loan of less than 200
It is said that the making of this
bill a Jaw will have the effect of clos
ing a number of the most undesirable
j branches of the money lending busi
ness and will benefit a large class of
mechanics and laborers and their
families who have been the principal
sufferers under the law that permit
I ted the assignment of wages for
I small debts
Some time ago a law was passed
which permitted no assignment of
wages without the signature of the
borrowers wife This was found in
effective however as the borrower
would usually find some way of ob
taining the signature
It is for this reason that the new
law has been passed It is thought
that it wl1lbe effective where
others have hitherto failed Christian

A Loan Sharks Discomfiture
It was demonstrated in the Monroe
county court one day this week that
the term loan shark is not too se
vere to be applied to some of the con
cerns that make business of loaning
comparatively small sums to persons
who are driven by force of circum
stances to seek temporary financial
assistance
One Johnson who conducts a
moneylending business had sued a
Mrs Mary E Fay for 118 which
to pardon men convicted of contempt
toward the United States supreme
court Taft would have to feed on
something besides possum to build
up the requisite nerve

went the way of all the earth Ha

The L N Railroad Company has
finally begun the repair of Tarragona
street by dumping a few loads of

suggest that the board of public

repairs constitue a full compliance

engaged in producing such a sweet

that they are not capable of using a
club on an obnoxious editor
In holding back from the arbitration
of the firemens strike offered by Gov
ernor Smith the Georgia railroad is
assuming a responsibility of great sig
nificance Dispatches indicate clearly
that the section of the state traversed
by the road is deeply interested in
the situation and the people therein
would express their feeling in a
forceful fashion should they be given
cause to do so Good policy to say
nothing of the moral side ofthe situ
ation requires that Manager Scott

A DAlembertc special agent
sum he alleged was due him for the
principal of a promissory note for
100 and Interest thereon
When the case came to trial these
facts were disclosed In October 1904
Mrs Fay had gone to Johnson to bor
row some money He got her to sign
a note for 100 and gave her ninety
dollars Thereafter every three f
months Mrs Fay paid Johnson eight
or ten dollars and had the note re
newed She understood that the pay
ments which she made were for in
terest
The last renewal of the note was
made on January 2 1908 At that
time Mrs Fays quarterly paymentr
amounted to 118 Yet Johnson held
her note for the original 100 Prob
ably acting under advice Mrs Faj
made no further payments and re
cently Johnson brought suit
The jury took the view that the ten
dollars discount on the original note
was sufficient interest on the ninety
dollars which Mrs Fay had received
for the time during which she had
had the use of that sum or part of it
that the quarterly payments were to
be regarded as applicable to the prin I
cipal and that therefore the plaintiff
not only had no claim against her but
owed her the eighteen dollars which
she had paid in excess of the amount
of the note and interest thereon
amounting to a dollar and a half So
it returned a verdict adjudging John
son indebted to her for 1950
It appears from this that no special
legislation Is necessary to suppress
the practice of some of the loan con
cerns of extorting usurious interest
The law against usury is sufficient
and needs only to be invoked Al

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS
Chicago May 1Wheat was irregular
during the early trading today the May
delivery being strong and the more dis
tant deliveries inclined to be weak
Shorts were again fairly active bidders
for the May option but the deferred
futures were under considerable selling
pressure owing to generally favorable
weather conditions for the new crop in
this country The market however was
dominated to a great extent by the con
gestion existing in the May delivery
Prices at the opening were 1814c
lower to 58c higher May being at 132
34 to 7S and July at 117 38 to 34
Later May advanced to 9133 but July
sold off to 117
Local receipts of cprn were again lib
ra1atd as a result prices declined
materially arly in the day Selling was
general and was led by prominent com
mission houses Support was poor May

to 75 14 and sold Off to 74 J4c July
hlcb opened l8Jc to l43Sc lower
at 70 15 to 14 declined to 69 78
During the last half of the day the
market sluraped severely especially for
May which was affected by a demoralized
market for the cash grain and broke to
72 7 B July declined to 69 14 The
close was weak with May off 2 14 at 73
July was l8c rower at 69 143S
