I have been reading several articles In regard to changing the route at Georgia Square. I endorse the one by Prother Todd as the best I have seen by a long ways. I can't eee how any one living in one part of a city should sign a petition that affects the prop erty rights of those living in another part. I am in favor of having a plenty of playground for school children; but ill school lots have ample room for play, without interfering with public highways.' How would it look to cir culate a petition in Santa Rosa county for a school or a road in Escambia county? I belies if a person were to circulate & petition to have me hung it would receive a number of signers, notwith standing the fact that I have never been brought before a bar of Justice durinj my life. Mr. Editor, it has been truly said that liny fool can start a thing, but It taks a smart man to know where to stop I think any loyal citizen should sign a petition that makes for the public good; but for my life I can not see j the public good that could come from changing the route in question. Suppose the fire trucks should be going at the rate of ten miles an hour and aeounter a market wagon and a streei bar at the place where the car line turns up the hill to go west, can you imgaine what a condition would ensue? No. For mercy's sake "let good enough alone." It seems to me that the world has got to going entirely too fast and can't etop. I. E. ALLEN. REASON SHOULD PREVAIL ANENT GEORGIA SQUARE Editor Pensaco'a Journal. The writer has not an iota of inter est in the Georgia Square controversy, only as it pertains to the general in terest of the city and country, and all should have that much. The "mass against class" idea has been wrongly used in this. That a few property owners would be benefited by a straight street Is no reason why all others would not. The nearness of, and compulsory conditions surrounding, Lee Square make so close a repetition of it little short of ridiculous. With a straight street, two snug . resting niches could be established at minimum expense, and, through va riety, be far more pleasing to the eye than the solid square with Its attend lng surroundings. Aside from the narrow personalities developed, it's hard to believe that one In a hundred would favor the hazardous conditions that would be caused by the divided street Let reason prevail. W. S.

Edmunds and Albert C. Fach. New York, Aug. 27. Charged with having feloniously assaulted Albert C. Fach, district attorney of Richmond county, Mrs. Elizabeth M. Edmunds, a handsome woman of thirty-nine, awaits trial in the Richmond JalL On August 23, Mrs. Edmunds calmly shot the district 'attorney in his office. He cannot live. Mrs. Edmunds blamed, the district attorney for the loss of her eleven acre tract ott land recently by fore closure, and felso for the failure of a recent criminal proceeding started against her husband for alleged fail ure to support her. These two fan cied grievances so preyed on her mind that she sought revenge. Mrs. Edmonds, who is now penni less, has had! much trouble in the last few years. It began in 1909 when her husband, who is a dentist, found her in Chinatown with Noah Palmer, a millionaire manufacturer. After the millionaire had got passage for the two to Europe, the woman changed her mind. Subsequently the dentist broke a stout cane on- the head of a real estate broker whom he caught with his wife in Broadway. De Gilbert Was your audience with you?

Chief of Police Sandera last night received the letter which is repro duced below, regarding an incident which occurred in this city about three months ago. An examination of the records at the police station failed to show that the arrest referred to had been made, but an examination of the docket at the county Jail showed that on " the date referred to Sam Daniels, a negro, had been arrested on the charge of larceny, and it is thought that he is ty 1 negro referred to in the letter from the captain of the steamship. As Is seen by the letter, his innocence is clearly established by the finding of the money and there is a chance that the negro who lost the money may be able to recover it. The letter to Chief Sanders is as follows: S.S. Polcarne. Buenos Ayres, July 18, 1912. To the Chief of Police. Pensacola, Fla TJ. S. A. Sir: I feel It my duty to Inform you that while my steamer Polcarne was loading a deck cargo of wood at your port on May 13th last, one of the work men missed some dollar notes ($5 and $10) and a $10 gold piece from his coat pocket. He blamed a negro who was also working on board for having stolen this money. The man protest ed against the accusation and said he had not taken it. However, he was arrested and taken on shore. I now beg to advise you that the said money was found here after we had got part of the deck cargo off, therefore you will Bee that the man was actually Innocent of the accusa tion made against him. I trust you will be so kind as to advise both par ties, especially the accused, and thus clear the stain upon his character.
