Insurance For The Unemployed. The proposed bill Introduced by a member of the British parliament, for the state to Insure laborers against un employment. Invalidity and sickness. Is one that is destined to mean something to the common people the world over. True, It may take years for anything to be accomplished in the matter, but it Is one of the greatest movements ever started to benefit mankind. It will be a hard matter to make the members of any class of workmen agree upon any general scale of wages and the proposed movement will have many obstacles to overcome to make it thoroughly satisfactory, but if it can be done, then, surely the much-talked-of" millennium dawn will be here. j - une insurance against. ucmi;iujiuwv will not tend to cause idlness as some might suppose, and when the govern ment takes a hand in a matter of this ' kind it will see that the unemployed, if j for any great period, are given an op portunity, to learn another kind of trade which offers better advantages, both in price and in locations where j the work may be obtained, v This ought to be a movement that will appeal to the Socialists of the country. It seems to come nearer to what they are" advocating than any thing offered recently and state Insur ance against sickness and unemploy ment should be readily taken up by them. . v .. J " Much can be said on this subject, for it has many advantages, but the prin cipal ones are that it will increase the efficiency of the workmen; that it will Insure an era of peace and content ment in the labor circles, and that In- .to 1 tmalnul Ttrfll V A 11 n wort tft continue undisturbed and unmolested. Capital and labor will never be in dls pnate, the prices for all kinds of labor will continually increase,' and men who have served their years of usefulness will still be provided for and not be pushed out by younger and more effi cient men. . The time is not ripe to agitate this subject in the United States, but men 'should begin' to think on the subject. It means too much for humanity to let another country adopt It before this country takes any steps in the move ment, ana it wiu nave a tendency to promote a spirit of contentment among .the people such as has never been known before. ... Editor Lillard, of the Pensacollan, is continually Improving his Journal which tells of the wonderful possibili ties of Escambia county. The Pensa " colian is one of the best boosters In the state and the May number Is especially good,' the special articles being well ..written and the Illustrations are well chosen and clearly .printed. Governor Gilchrist's Pet Measure. The house has indefinitely postponed Representative Gray's bill to abolish k, technicalities In court procedure. This ' Is Governor Gilchrist's pet measure and xne action taKen means mat tne senti ment In the house is against it and ' any other efforts on the part of Gov . ernor Gilchrist or Representative Gray . will be practically useless. - We believe that the lawyers who treated this matter In this way did so from purely selfish motives, and we believe that they have done their pro ' "fesslon and the people of Florida vast . harm. The bill as proposed by Representa ' tive Gray is almost exactly In accord with the English laws at present, and ' it Is our impression that it is word for word like the recommendation of the . American Bar Association. In England the technical points of procedure have been eliminated and Justice is better served. Thirty years ago when the affairs there were wound tip with technicalities Justice was often lacking, but now the case is altogether . different arid technicalities do not play : any part. ' The American Bar Association is composed of the ablest legal talent in . the country In most cases of men who have made their fortunes In the law ". practice, and men who are now work- Ing to place their profession on the highest plane possible. These men have realized the absurdity of the present practice of procedure and have recommended to the various states that the technicalities be abolished. The same subject was before the Florida . bar at its last meeting and It seemed to be the concensus of opinion among the members that they agreed with the national order. ;j We axe sorry that the measure was defeated. Governor Gilchrist has dons his duty, as has Kepresentatlve Gray, and the voters will see that the next representatives chosen will be out spoken on this subject before they are elected. The people wantd this reform and the representatives failed to jrive the people what they wanted, Three thousand tons of bunker coal is what one steamer cleared from Pen sacola with one day this week. Getting so close to the goal In the elections, the defeated candidates can understand what Maude Muller felt on that summer day. Sixty would-be doctors took the ex amination yesterday. If they all suc ceed it win be time to call for a life preserver and holler police. There Is now an avowed candidate from each section of the state in the race for governor. May the best man win and the section not count. Florida peaches are on the New York market, but they are the kind served for breakfast. The tug Roosevelt, on the Atlantic coast, is said to have raised a steamer by the use of hot air. We know of one Roosevelt that has wasted enough "hot air" to have raised several steamers. An artist said to be the greatest In the world In drawing the human figure, died In Chicago last week. 'President Diaz says he will resign when peace is restored. Just imagine there ever being peace in Mexico. The higher court has sustained the decision of the lower court in the case of the Tampa labor leader in the re cent trouble there and he will have to serve his time. Such characters as he are the ones that hurt the cause of honest labor and the sooner the masses learn to have nothing to do with them, the SOOner will lahnr nrnnlnH have the prestige they should deserve.

JENNINGS TOM-WEST WEST FLORIDA MEMBERS ARE PRAISED FOR THEIR GOOD WORK AT TALLAHASSEE JEN NINGS KNEW THE RULES AHEAD OF TIME. The Tallahassee correspondent of the Jacksonville Metropolis has the following to say regarding two promi nent West Floridians, T. A. Jennings and Thos. F. west: The First Question. One of the first questions asked by the visitor to Tallahassee, or of the legislator or attache who goes home for a few days, is, "What kind of a speaker is Mr. Jennings making?" . The question is a natural one, for the papers have thus far neglected to answer It. To borrow an expression from the Gentleman From Misslssip pi," a play, he is "making Just the very best kind of a speaker," or, in the language of the street, he has "made good and is always on the Job." There are a number of splendid par liamentarians in the house, among whom are Dougherty, Matthews, Mac Williams, Watson, Reaves and others, but none of them have so far succeed ed in getting Mr. Speaker in a place so tight that he did not soon get out of it. Unlike many other members of the house, the gentleman from Escam bia had never before sat in a parlia roaptqfy body of the size and dignity of the house of representatives of iOi.ua, uut he studied the rules of this and the national house like a youth his books, so that he was ready for the wrangles. It is not known to be a fact, but it Is suspected that Mr. Jennings studied some before he came to the capital, for he seemed to be en tirely familiar with the rules the first day he ( presided, wielding the gavel T V. i o TALK H. R. CAULIFIELD, NATIONAL ORGAN IZER OF THE ORDER OF OWLS IN THE UNI TED STATES AND CANADA, FURNISHES SOME INTERESTING INFORMATION RE GARDING FRATERAL ORDERS. He says: "While I am a member of the Eagles and the Elks, I have never known in the history of fraternal organizations ONE TO ENJOY SUCH UNBOUNDED SUCCESS IN SO SHORT A TIME AS THE OWLS. "Of course, it is very easy to make a claim for a membership and sick and death benefits disbursed by any secret order, but the evidence that we adduce is incorporated in the most reliable publication of its kind in the United States or anywhere else. "I refer to THE WORLD ALMANAC AND ENCYCLOPEDIA, which devotes considerable space to the statistics of fraternal organizations. In their edition of 1911, 1 quote verbatim. "'OWLS, ORDER OF FOUNDED 1904, HOME NEST 1, SUBORDINATE NESTS 1,642, MEMBERS, 52,421; BENEFITS DISBURSED SINCE ORGANIZATION, $521,316; BENEFITS DISBURSED LAST FISCAL YEAR, $173,316.

"The World Almanac accepted as an authority by thejbureau of statistics in Washington, and is used in that department of the national government as one of its reference books. The World Almanac figures are collected not only through the great commercial agencies such as Dun's and Bradstreet's, but by the painstaking labor agents of The New World in every city, town and village in this country, CONSE QUENTLY WHEN A FRATERNAL ORGANI ZATION IS ENROLLED IN THE WORLD AL MANAC, YOU CAN DEPEND THAT THE AC COUNT OI?

"In The World Almanac is shown a most inter esting fact that the Odd Fellows in America out number the Masons. The Odd Fellows have 1,441,403 members, while the. Free Masons have 1,389,317.

Maybe he studied some the night after the caucus, but that's not likely. He had never been to the leg islature before, except as a spectator for a day or two at a time. He had been to congress, too, as a looker-on. But where he learned it is of little im portance: that knows it, however, is a certainty. Not only by his fair rulings at all times has he shone and won friends by scores, but in his committee ap pointments he has demonstrated the best of judgment. The regular com mittee appointments have been equally as good. Fulfilling as nearly as pos sible the desires of the members, he has named men that he thought were especially suited for the work to be done.

He selected these men In about fifteen minutes: West, chairman: Stringer, MacWllllams, Matthews and McKenzle, of Washington. Tom West. This committee has one cf the most important works of this session. Chair man Tom West is examining the wit nesses for the most part, and he Is surprising even the members of the committee by the able manner in which he does the cross-questioning. They all knew that he was a good lawyer, but they had not seen demon strated before that he was the master that he is In this particular function of the profession. The other members of the committee probe well, too, and when a witness goes through the fire of that committee he is certain to know that he has been examined and if he didn't tell something interesting it was because he didn't know it," Mrs. Hornbeak (In the midst of her reading) My goodness!
