Republicans to Call National Convention. The defeated and discredited repub lican party, having trie! several ex periments la the way of reorganiza tion, has determined on a plan to call a national convention as a last resort to cement together the pieces f the fractured party. It Is said that the principal object In holding this convention will be to cut down the representation In repub lican conventions from the southern states. In addition to this an effort will be made to permit republicans Iron their own states to elect dele gates . to national conventions in their own way, so the choice of each state will be regulated according to the laws of the state. The chief difficulty In the way of this plan is said to be In the fact that the national committee of the party is opposed to the plan and a call for a national convention must come from this committee. If the representation from the south is cut down it will have to be don by a convention specially called, as It is a matter of s history, a nominating .convention will never consent to a reduction of rep resentation. . : In view of th fact that the republi cans carried only two small states in the last election, it is difficult to un derstand how it will help the party to reduce th number of negro dele gates from the south or how it would have any bearing on the standing of the party should the south be deprived altogether of participation- In repub- 1 : .t , A .i As an : organization, the republican party is in a had way. 1 Instead of one, there are now four "first ladles of the land." The District of Columbia. The city of Washington or rather the District of Columbia has the com mission form of government. There is no doubt that President Taft, in his praise of th government of the city, in bis farewell address to the business and professional men of the city, was entirely right. The district was formerly treated as a territory and had a governor and a legislature and many scandals pre vailed. No scandal has been beard of inc the government of the district was placed in the hands of a small commission. During this latter period th city has wonderfully developed In ize ana beauty ana nas become a model for other American cities. Its public affairs seem to be con ducted without corruption and graft and its municipal administration is a trong argument in favor of commis sion "government. .

Determined that any Judge who places a light estimate on morality shall be punished, th women of San Francisco, lately armed with the bal lot, have started a movement for the recall of a police Judge named Weller. , It Is said that Weller reduced the tond of a young man who had attacked a girl and made it so low that the man i as enabled to run away. It Is asserted that on previous occasions this judge had either placed bonds so low that the criminals escaped or he reduced the amounts fixed by other judges- ;C Whatever may be the outcome of this particular case, the effect will be How's This?

Commissioners Will In a White Man's Primary There is no ground whatever for the assumption that the three commissioners to be elected under Pen sacola's new commission charter will not be selected in a White Man's Primary. As announced by The Journal last week, the com missioners will be nominated in a White Primary just as we have heretofore nominated our city officials. ' The call for the Primary was issued several days ago, as required by law. It could not of course contem plate the changes in, the charter that have since been agreed upon, because the committee did not know which charter was going to be adopted. Since'the adoption of the hew charter, the city democratic executive committee will amend the call so as to provide for the nomination of three commissioners instead of for officers under the old charter. After these three commissioners are nominated by majority vote in the White Primary, they will then backed by the White V oters of Pensacola be elected at the general city election in June. That is really all there is to the subject. for the good of the courts. It is said in San Francisco the ' Judges have already become stirred up and have adopted resolutions to the effect that no judge shall reduce the amount of bail fixed by another judge. I Of course at this distance little or nothing isknown'of the merits of this particular case. Still it is obvious, however unfit ,this man may be, his offenses are such that it would be im possible to reach him with impeach ment proceedings. But if he is unfit to hold a judicial position, as would appear on the face of the news reports, he 13 likely to be recalled and the va cancy thus created will be filled by a more suitable man.

"Let your enemies kiss you." That practice has, been in vogue from time immemorial among the women folks. The Polk county edition of the Tampa Tribune was replete with in teresting facts and figures concerning one of South Florida's most pros perous counties and reflected much credit upon that enterprising paper. Most successful from every view point is the Florida Chautauqua in session at DeFuniak Springs, Large and enthusiastic audiences have greet ed the various entertainers each day since the opening and the citizens of that delightful little city are very greatly pleased with the prospects. J. A. Crosby, who has for twenty two years owned and edited the San Mateo Item, has disposed of bis in terests to Thos. W. and G. S. Davis, experienced newspaper men. In his retirement from the journalistic field Mr. Crosby carries with him the best wishes of the Florida press. It is unfortunate that Tampa was not located over in Polk instead of Hillsborough county, and we are in clined to believe that the Tribune will soon advocate a measure of some de scription to bring about the removal of all of its goods, chattels and hereditaments to a real, live progres sive and productive section of the state.

ROBERT M'NAMEE, WELL KNOWN FLORIDIAN, SAYS THE CITY HAS BEEN TRANSFORMED AND WE HAVE BEST HOTEL IN STATE. Hon. Robert HcXamee, former speaker of the Florida house of rep resentatives, for years one of the state's most prominent attorneys, and now general manager of Claude L'En gles' Dixie, was in Pensacola yester day, enroute home from Atlanta. Col. McXamee had not been in Pen sacola for six years and, to use his own words, he found what appeared to him, "a new city." "I would hardly have known Pensa cola," said Col. McXamee to a Journal representative. "It is -t transformed city. Your street paving is the best I have ever seen and I am astonished and impressed with this wood block paving. The wood blocks make a beautiful pavement and, from all ap pearances, a very lasting one- The noiseless feature of this pavement is cne of its greatest advantages." He was also greatly impressed with the San Carlos hotel. "I have been all over the state." said he. "and this is the best hotel in Florida." " " Col. McXamee says the intention is to widen the scope of Dixie and ulti mately to make a daily state paper of it. He believes another evening paper- in Jacksonville, properly edited and managed, would prove an immediate success. He left last night for home.

The W. O. W. have purchased the old Walker hotel and have about com pleted an entire renovation of the building. They now have a large and veil arranged lodge room upstairs, jind a hall with seating capacity for a large audience below. The whole building will be fitted with an up-to-date lighting system, and will soon be ready for occupancy. Rev. W. M. Cox, presiding elder of the Pine Barren circuit of the Metho dist church, met with the church mem bers here at 3 o'clock Sunday after noon. A good-sized am', appreciative audience listened to hi3 sermon, the theme of which was thi efficacy and need of prayer and sincere faith- He handled the subject in a simple, inter esting and convincing- manner, and so playily were the great truths told that even a child might understand. The members of the Baptist church here have in contemplation the paint ing of their church building', as have the Methodists. The Methodist church will begin having a new roof put on. FEEL SHAKY.

Large audiences are attending all exercises at the Florida Chautauqua at De Funiak Springs, Florida. Miss Julia Traylor has received her share of praise from young and old. Her ren dition of "What a Two Month Old Baby Knows" and a "Child's Bear Story" have brought forth much fa vorable comment. Miss Traylor es pecially excels in child impersona tion, and her rendition of the lighter vein made her justly popular. The course of Shakespearean lec- of the bowels.

The Ida V. Kinley Musical Company is at the Chautauqua. The music on the hells was encored again and again, and the talking songs and comic pro ductions of Mrs. Kinley have brought forth the largest audiences. All in all the Chautauqua is most prosperous.
