Commercial Secretaries
Convention in Atlanta
One of the most important gather
Ings of the year will be held in At
lanta July 7th and 8th This will
be the convention of the Southern
Commercial Secretaries Association
Its deliberations will cover topics
of deep concern to every city and
should be productive of new energy
I nd achievement on the part of all
I southern commercial bodies
Among the more vital subjects to
be discussed will be Good roads
how to build them The work of
commercial organizations in municipal
betterment Cooperation between
commercial secretaries Municipal
advertising1 Cooperation between
industrial and advertising publicity
departments of railroads and com
mercial secretaries Commercial or
ganizations and legislation The
secietarys local troubleshow to
overcome them and Commission
government for cities
These are truly great questions and
in their proper solution and enforce
ment of such rules and regulations as
will necessarily result from the solu
tion will depend to a great extent
the future growth ami influence of
Southern cities
I Nothing 4s more needed than a
great awakening to activity on the
part of the business men of every
community In these days of sharp
competition the spirit should be just
as strong in rival cities as in rival cor
porations under ordinary business con
trol and that city is sure to lag In
the rear whose commercial body Is
not vigilant active progressive and
everlastingly going out after results
by means of well considered advertis
ing and tempting offers made to capi
tal and lab9r tb seek settlement with
in its limits or in its neighborhood
The Chattanooga Tradesman com
menting upon tao Atlanta convention
speaks well when it declares
As a rule Chambers of Commerce
Boards of Trade and like bodies are
unimportant factors In municipal de
velopment We say as a rule be
cause few cities give the support nec
essary to make the business body
stand for little besides general mat
ters of only general Interest Period
IcaHy some little activity is evidenced
Sporadic advertising campaigns inaug
urated a Hue show of actual vital
itT and then a return to the coma
tose condition most generally in evi
dence Commercial organizations
should stand for everything that
spells progress and advancement and
while the secretaries without the co
operation of their respective bodies
can accomplish little as individuals
still as an organization they can
arouse a sentiment that would be for
lasting good and decided industrial
And The Journal would add that
the holding of this convention which
will be participated in of course by
the secretaries of every wideawake
commercial body of the South will go
a long way towar arousing a progres
sive sentiment besides opening up
avenues of action as a natural se
quence to combined and Intelligent
The comatose conJition most gen
eially in evidence in commercial
bodies to which The Tradesman calls
attention Is often due as much to a
lack of knowledge of what is the
best thing to do as it is to natural
or turahinerUa and a dread of
the exertion entailed by going to
work to do it
Therefore great things are sure to
result from cooperation between com
mercial secretaries free and full dis
cussion of means to be adopted for
city building and the resultant en
thusiasm which Is sure to be Inspired
by such cooperation and discussion
The report of the legislative com
mittee on Everglades drainage will

Why Pensacolans Are
Always on the Jump
In an editorial headed Frogs for
Pensacola the Orlando ReporterStar
I pays a compliment to that city in the
I following language
The frog industry is on the increase
I The Macon News tells of the importa
tion from Germany of five hundred
weather frogs guaranteed to foretell
I changes in the weather and the Tam
pa Times contains a lengthy article
telling of a contemplated bullfrog
farm in Santa Rosa county Florida
Florida does not need weather frogs
because there Is always just the right
sort of weather and It would take a
mighty likely German frog to fortell
a rainfall out of a sunshiny sky any
how But according to the Times
articles Pensacola does need bull
frogs as in that city the hindermost
jumpers of the bullfrog arc very es
sential to a square meal We under
stand now why Pensacola is alwa s
on the jump The bullfrog explains
Let us tender thanks to the Report
erStar for this double compliment
to Pensacolas gustatory discrimina
tion and to its progressive spirit And
it may be as ojir contemporary re
mark that there Is some mysterious
connection between the average Pen
sacolans affection for frogs legs and
his irrepressible tendency to jump
It is a well known fact that differ
ent foods produce peculiar results
when given to animals Raw beef
fed to a bulldog for instance will
awaken his savage nature It is hard
to tell what would happen to a tor
toise shell cat if you fed her on
gopher She would probably change
her mode of living and seek a hole in
the ground
Well jumping is a good thing and
the consumption of frogs legs as a
means toward that end isa most
delectable performance So it would
not be a bad plan for brethren farther
down in the state to acquire a taste
for this food of highly civilized man
and by consuming it freely gain the
commendable activity that character
izes the citizens of Pensacola
Verily we ought now to be con
vinced ExGovernor Dpuglass the
mighty man of shoes ha Come out in
a pamphlet to demonstrate the right
eousness of free hides Go to the
Yank thou sluggard consider his
wajs etc etc That is the way
Solomon would put it were he living
in this day and generation
Senator Bailey of Texas does not
seem fond of that word honor It
does set one athinking but it should
not lead up to fisticuffs with news
paper reporters and loss of senatorial
dignity Fact is a modest tolerance
would best become Bailey when all
things are taken into consideration

Apropos of the recent observance
of Mothers Day we recall an elo
Ciuent tribute which was delivered by
William J Bryan at Frodericksburg
Va during the famous campaign or
ISSfc to the mother of Wasuingon
Sad the noted orator
Fredericksburg is not a large city
and yet it is rich In incidents of
great historic value Here the wo
men of America have reared a monu
ment to Mary the mother of Warh
ington I am glad to stand on this
spot I am glad to feel the influence
which surround her grave In a cam
paign especially In a campaign like
this there is much of bitterness antI
sometimes of abuse spoken against
the candidates for public office but
my friends there Is one character
tbe mothera candidate for the af
fections of all mankind against
whom 110 true man ever uttered a
word of abuse There Is one name I
mother which is never found upon
the tongue of the slanderer n her
presence all criticism is silenced The
painter has with his brush trans
ferred the landscape to the canvas
with such fidelity that the trees and
grasses seem almost real he has
even made the face of a maiden seem
instinct with life but there Is one
picture so beautiful that no painter
has ever been able to perfectly re
produce It and that is the picture of
the mother holding in her arms her
babe Within the shadow of this
monument reared to the memory of
each one of us I bow in humble rev
erence to motherhood

The consumer may be regarded as
the innocent bystander in our politi
cal system Whoever is shot at by
our stern old Roman statesmen he
gets hit i
During political campaigns we hear
a good deal about the consumer
Spokesmen of both parties tell us that
the time has come to take some
thought for the consumer There are
two great classes in this as in every
other country the producers and the
consumers The former certainly cant
get along without the latter Natur
ally the consumers are in the major
ity In fact everybory Is a consu
mer but everybody is not a pro
Thus during political campaigns the
consumer is flattered and caressed
and made to believe tba ne is actual
ly alive So he gets him a flag or a
torch and marches along the muddy
street often contractinga case of grip
I in the interest of the party that is
I going to give him his rights At last
he feels that he is to be protected
I against the felonious and tryannical
The election Is over and the con
sumer has enlargement of the chest
i The robber tariff that has taken from
i ho hardearned dollars and handed
j them over to the trusts and indus I
trial concerns is to be reformed and
amputated An indignant and out
I raged people have finally brought the
politicians to their senses On bend
ed knee the demagogue Is saying his
prayers to the triumphant consumer
Justice Has triumphed The Square
Deal Is a fact
Well congress meets and the ways
ami means committee organizes and
prepares for a reform of the tariff
1 he consumer wears the smile that
wont come off But it is observable
that there Is a steady stream of
delegations calling on the committee I
I Tbe champions of zinc the friends
of thp cow and the egg the little I
brothers of petroleum the benevolent I
older of steel manufacturers the mak i
ers of stockings the evangels of wood
all are cordially invited into the com
mittee room and permitted to have
whatever they ask for
The poor old consumer is not In
vited to these soirees Whenever he
imagines that he is a wedding guest
there is an Ancient Mariner just in
sde the committee room door to hold
him with his glittering eye
As a matter of fact the consumer
has served his purpose in the econo
my of politics and he Is now a dead
one Instead of securing relie from
the big industrial combinations he is
politely informed by one congressman
that the trust Is a ghost and he is
told to his face by another congress
man that he isa myth and that he
only imagines himself alive
The consumer is one of the most
perplexing conundrums In nature He
al ays wins the marble heart antI
is handed therlemon A seeker after
pie he is invariably fed on wind pud
ding He is always a member in good
standing of the party of the Extreme
Left He may nurse a sore toe for
a while but her will almost Invariably
rally to the fellow who gave liim
the sore toe rIn spite of what has
happened to him he remains a sucker
to the end of pIs days believing ev
erything that everybody tells him
voting against his own Interests under
the impression that ho is feathering
hit nest a perpetual doormat for the
large flat heeL of tae politician and
an easy mark for every fraud and
crook Whenever the government has
things to give away It never sends
an underling out to flag the con
sumer but whenever it wishes to
make a present to one of the Infant
centenarian industries it is the con
sumers golden opportunity to get
thrown down and have what he owns
taken away from him
But he never knows what has hit
him or who threw that brick
