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-

The District of
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

model for other American cities.
Its public affairs seem to be con
ducted without corruption and graft
and its municipal administration is a

Determined that any Judge who

Francisco, lately armed with the bal

recall of a police Judge named Weller.

that on previous occasions this judge

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.

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

Hon. Robert HcXamee, former
speaker of the Florida house of rep

state's most prominent attorneys, and
now general manager of Claude L'En

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

will be fitted with an up-to-date

for occupancy.
