A Friendly Suggestion to Mr. Jennings. It ia none of The Journal' business that the Pensacola News should con tinue to make a fool of itself. It is of little material concern to anybody that the News should write Itself down, day after day, as a publication devoid either of lntelllgenca,or of conscience. But It is a continued matter of sur prise and Incredulity that T. A. Jen nings, whose money Is invested in the Pensacola News, ehould permit the News to pursue a policy that is as mendacious on the one hand as it is ludicrous on the other. Under its present policy, the Pensa cola News commands neither the re spect nor confidence of any consider able number of people. For months, by dirty insinuation and little sneaking innuendo, it has continued to make covert attacks on The Journal, though it has never had the courage or the honesty to'make a direct statement or a plain charge of any kind. Tha Journal has no objection to this nd if Mr. Jennings desires to have the News run on that kind of a policy, that is his privilege. . But in "all friendliness we would sug gest to Mr. Jennings that the News could accomplish more good and com mand more respect If it were conducted on a higher plane of Journalistic In telligence. . ; ' " It is no, concern of The Journal's that the Pensacola News Is committed to the advocacy of special Interest policies; that the special interest can didates find in it a ready, though piti fully weak, champion whenever they appear: that local public eervIcoV cor porations can always look to t for support, whether in defeat of regnla tlve legislation or the passage of a friendly ordinance; that It serves its boss in abject obedience whenever the boss gives the word. All of this the public discerns and measures at its own value. Mr. Jennings may not realize to what an extent the News Is bringing discredit on itself and on him, and we merely offer him this friendly sug gestion which he may adopt or reject as his best Judgment dictates. can have but one of two reasons for iL He must either believe the people not capable of knowing what they want, or he must himself be afraid of allow ing the people to control his actions. as their representative, in the per formance of duties which they select him to perform. Mr. Wilson has done well in making himself plain on this question and he will find the vast majority of the peo ple in accord with his position. Of course no one expected the Jack sonville Times-Union to approve of Wilson or Clark. Clark it says can not be a Democrat and have the peo ple who believe in the election of fed eral judges and members of the inter state commission by direct vote, ad vocating him. Bringing the govern ment closer to the people doesn't sound Democratic to the Jacksonville morn- ng paper, but it does to the majority of the people. Candidates Sometimes -- ; Make Serious Mistakes. Candidates for office are only human beings, after all, and are prone to make mistakes and blunders just the same as the man who makes out the bill for groceries, or teaches a Sunday school class. Strange to say, however, that all of tho candidates for state, congressional and county office have neglected one important plank which should bo ad vocated. Park Trammell even forgot to "favor" it and not one realized that it might be made the one issue in the campaign. The perpetuity of the gopher is what we refer to. How any would-b statesman could forget so great a subject, we cannot Imagine. It was a serious blunder and all of the candidates for office blun- dere'd, and for so doing, cannot lay any claims to real statesmanship. When the candidates partake of the gopher gumbo at The Journal's ban quet after the famous Rube-Journal ball game, we expect to see every can didate adopt some plan for keeping with us that wonderful piece of flesh and blood known as the Florida gopher. , i The southern man is Woodrow Wil son. Every man who works succeeds, even if his temporal riches do not ap pear. . Emmett Wilson On Direct Legislation. The platform of Emmett Wilson, candidate for congress from the third congrejsional district, is full of good meat for democratic consumption. One of the best planks in it is the one dealing with what is known as dl rect legislation, or the initiative, refer endum, and recall. Of these measures Mr. Wilson says: . , Having the utmost confidence in the rapacity of the whole people to in telligently govern themselves. I favor what is known as the initiative and referendum. I believe that legislation giving to the people tho power to Initiate law., or ' to approve or repudiate those paused by the legislature, is one of the best means proposed of bringing pul lie officials to a consciousness that they are servants of the people. Such a position doej not destroy represen tative government, but restores gov ernment to the people. By the initiative, we mean the power in the rennle to initiate such laws as they think proper; and by the referendum we mean the power in this people to have referred to them for their approval or disapproval measures which may have been passed by the legislature or ny congress. The recall is a means of exercising a nirect control over administrative officers, and would, I believe-, cause the officers administering the affairs of the people to realize more fully that they are directly responsible to the people. These powers, that is. the Initiative, reierenaum ano recall, may not often re exercised by the people, but thev should at least have the right to call them into play when the necessity arise.?. This is the right sort of doctrine and it will fall on very receptive ears. The candidate for office who opposes the initiative, referendum, and recall How's This?

Shortly after the appearance in th state of a personal representative of Oscar u. l.nderwocd, candidate for the Democratic presidential nomina tion, we find the state flooded with four-page supplement?, sent out with practically 'every weekly paper in the state, and some of the dailies, detail ing the great abilities and wonderful service to Democracy of the gentleman from Alabama. These supplements were offered to every newspaper In the state and. it is presumed, the cam paign management of Mr. Underwood is prepared to furnish them In unlim ited numbers. Coincident with the sudden awakening of Underwood ad vocates in Florida, we learn that his campaign in the state has been placed in the keeping of Pleasant Holt and Frank Chase, of Jacksonville. The Tribune admire3 Mr. Underwood as one of the strongest and best of the Democrats in cOBgress. He haa dem onstrated remarkable ability as the leader of the majority in the house of representatives. There is no question ing his stateman8hlp or hia honesty. But. as the Tribune views it, the Dem ocratic party would make a lamentable mistake in nominating him for presi dent. That he would not carry a state outside of the always Democratic southern states and that the result of the ill-advised selection w-ould be a landslide for the Republican ticket, there can be no question with any man who knows anything at all about na tional politico. The Democrats of the north may de lude the Underwood boomers with fair- sounding yet evasive remarks about the time having arrived for the elec tion of a southern man as president but they will be found singing an en tirely different tune when the conven tion meets; and, should Mr. Under- ldea have you got into your head now?

There once was a starfish who lived in the brine (The "brine" me-ms the sea), and h-j went out to dine Ho wandered around 'till he saw a big clam, And he said, "There' my meat I'll pretend it's spring lamb." So he reached for the clam, but the clam was too quick. And he closed up his shell with a loud, sudden click And he nipped Mr. Starfish with: "That's how one fares Who keeps sticking his noso iato peo ple's affairs!" The starfish at once went away In a huff With the air of one knowing when he'3 had enough And the wily crustacean ("crusta cean" means clam) He chuckled and said, "What a wi3e guy I era!" But while he was laughing the star fish came back. He hadn't been far till he doubled his track. Made one sudden scoop and he giggled "Tut-tut!

The nomination of Mr. Underwood would mean for the Democratic party a, more crushing defeat than It has ever received, even under the leader shin of Mr. Brian.

The system undergoes a change at this eoason and the entire physical machinery ia disturbed. The general bodily weakness, a tired, worn-out feeling, fickle appetite, poor digestion, a half eick feeling and a general run-down condition of the system, show that the blood is weak or anaemic, and a blood purifying tonio is needed to build up the deranged system and enrich th9 blood.
