According to reports wh'cli reached Fennacola last nfrght, John Lindsay was shot in the back with a Winchester rifle, while he was in the act of walk ing away from his father. He lived only a short while after the bullet struck him. f The trouble between the father and turn is said to have been brewing for some time.ibelng the result of a fam ily feud-over land matters. Fart of the land in dispute was sold by the court seven or eight days ago sad this disposition of the land is said to have aggravated the situa tion.

Want Repeal of Free Tolls Provision of Panama Canal Law (Continued trom First Page) by diplomacy, shall be referred to the permanent court of arbitration estab lished at the hagne -byv the convention of the 29th of July, provided, nevertheless, that they do not affect the vital interests, the independence, or the honor of the two contracting stales, and , do not concern the inter ests of third parties. The question whether American coastwise vessels shall ray tolls for passing through the canal cannot possibly be said to affect cither nation's vital interests or inde pendence, or the 'honor of eithet of the two governments- "Clearly, a dif ference relating to the interpretation of a treaty has arisen between two (governments which have. a,greed to submit such differences to the hague court of arbitration. ; -In a special sense the United States 1.-? bound to observe faithfully and without question the treaty of April, IPOS; for the United States has been amomr governments the great advocate of arbitration, has practised It in im portant cases, and has urged it strong ly on all other goyernmen'ts. The United States cannot refuse to arbi trate the difference which has arisen concerning the proper interpretation of the Hay-Pauneefote Treaty, without turning its back on a very honorable chapter in its own history, and dam aging throughout the world the cause of free institutions. The republic ought to bo the most scrupulous of all gov ernments in the exact observance , of treaty obligations. It must be abso lutely faithful to 113 word, even to Its own hurt.

"Granting that some American shipping- interests migrht be benefited by the exemption of coastwise vessels from canal toll, since the term coast wise now includes voyages half round the globe, America surely has much larger interests which would be great ly served by the prompt abandonment of, any interpretation.- of the Hay- j Pauncefote Treaty against whioh Great Britain can enter a reasonable protest. Tho United States has an immense interest in the sanctity, of contracts, and in the strict observance of. all international conventions and treaties. It has an Immense interest in the faithful observance of any treaty be tween two or more nations which has been entered into 'for the benetit ofi mankind.' It . is true that in imes past many treaties have not been striclty observed; that others have been suffered to lapse quietly; and that some have been violated by one or more of the parties, too impatient to wait for a new convention. Despotic and monajchial governments have often sinned in these respects, and republics have Jbeen accused of like conduot. All the more reason that the American republic should do no act under a treaty which can be .even questioned by candid and honorable men. In the efficacy of International agreements lies the chief hope of the world for progressive civilization." 1 SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION AT iL0NDYl8 The following Is the program of the Sunday school convention of the Pen sacola Bay Baptist Association, meet ing; with Klondyke Baptist church, Klondyke, Friday, Saturday and Sun day, March 2Sth, 29th and 30th, 1913: Friday- 9:30 a. m.

SULLI VAN'S LECTURE AT THE SAN CARLOS AUDITORIUM YESTER DAY AFTERNOON. "The Judgment Day; What is it For?" was the subject of the lecture of O. L. Sullivan at the San Carlos auditorium yesterday afternoon and was listened to by a large number. "This topic," said the speaker, "is one of the moat important and gen erally, discussed of Bible subjects, but nevertheless it is much misunderstood and mininterpreted. . We note partic ularly two unscriptural ideas which are quite prevalent; first, the length of the Judgment Day, and second, what ig it for; what is God's purpose in Appointing such a day. With re spect to the first proposition, the opin ion prevails that the judgment day will be twenty-four hours long; and with respect to the second proposi tion, most people think that day is for the - burning of the earth, and committing of thousands of millions cf unsaved people to a place, of endless torment. "No wonder that people generally greatly dread the approach of that day, and do not like to hear it dis cussed. Those of you who have rea3 Pastor Russell's wonderful little book entitled, 'What Say the Scriptures About Hell? understand how this eternal torment theory had its rise. It is not necessary for me to discuss this since-1 understand the little book can he had free by addressing him at the Brooklyn tabernacle. A Different Coloring. "To the question of the judgment day from the Bible standpoint puts a different coloring upon it and removes from people's mind the dread that the unscrfptural view produced. And this Is true particularly with respect to persons who love righteousness. We understand the Bible to teach that the judgment day will be 1,000 years long, rather than twenty-four hours, and In stead of ending all hope. It will be the dawn of hope for the poor, sin-siok, groaning, dying race. "Now let us prove from God's Word that the judgment day will be 1.000 years long. In Ps. &u:4 it is intimated that one of God's days is 1,000 years long; and this is made very plain in 2 Peter 3:7, S. In. verse 7 the term judgment day occurs, and in verse 8 the apostle Intimates that that day will be 1,000 years long "Beloved be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thou sand years. The judgment day of the foregoing Scripture is synonymous with the period of. 1,000 years of which mention is made In the 20th chapter of Revelation and in which It Is stated that Satan will be kept in prison throughout that entire period that he may not deceive the people. "Xo doubt Jesus had that 1.000 year day In mind when he told some of the Jews that it would be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomor rah In the day of judgment that it would be for their city. (Matt. 10: 15) How would this be possible if the judgment day is only twenty-four hours long? Or could It be possible if the Jews and Sodomites were consign ed to a place of eternal woe? The Lord said nand, net 'hell-fire,' and during .the 1,000 year judgment, day the Sod omites will be xon .the land the earth. "Mankind will be greatly favored during that long period, and the favor will continue to all except whoever" may refuse to obey the -great Judge. King- and Prophet, who then will have full jurisdiction' over the whole hu man race, redeemed by Himself at His first advent. In Acts 3:22.23 it 5s plainly stated that the disobedient will be destroyed. All will receive the measure of correction their past mis deeds merit, but om will receive more than others, because they sinned a gain? t more light and knowledge. Whoever will be properly exercised by the discipline will live forever, while those failing to do so will be destroyed In the second death. "During that blessed period Ezekiel IS: 55 will be fulfilled. The Israelites, Sodomites and Samaritans will come back to the earth, their 'former estate and Ezekiel 37:12-14 will be fulfilled' also. And is this not what Jesus meant j when He said, 'All that are in their graves will hear His voice and"come forth. (Jho. 5:28.) He will bring them r Everybody is Invited to Attend a Demonstration Carnival conducted by the Ladies of First Presbyterian Church Beginning at 11:30 o'clock dailv, For FOUR DAYS, Commencing Tuesday .-.133 South Palafox Street, Next to La Mode. All kinds of household necessities will be demonstrated by the ladies, and light luncheons and refreshments of the demonstrated products will be served free. All are invited. Remember, commencing Tuesday and lasting FOUR days forth to bless them, reigning 1,000 years for that purpose. "Now notice a few texts in which that glad day is particularly men tioned. In Acts 17:31 it is stated that God will judge the world in righteous ness through His. dear Son. In Isaiah 11:1-9 we. learn what that day will be like, and what It is for. In it will be put down all evil, and the earth will be filled with the knowledge of God. That glorious time, and. the work then to be accomplished, are graphically described in Psa. 72:1-14 and in Ps. 96:11-13. 'Note specially this in the last citation, "Rejoice before the Lord for He cometh to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteous ness, and the people with His truth. "The church is being judged in the present age, to get its members ready to judge mankind in the Messianic age, as suggested by the Apostle in 1 Cor. 6:2 'Know ye not' that the saints shall judge the world? "They will be associates with Jesus, their Head, in that great work. . Judgment begins with the House of God, the church (1 Peter-4:17). and will reach the world in the next age. Jesus wcrds In John 1?:47 show plainly that the world is not being judged now, 'If any man hear my words and believe not I judge ( him not, for I came not to judge the; world but to save the world. This en- j ables us to understand why Jesus prayed not for the world, but only for His disciples. Christians are having their destiny fixed now, and the world i will have theirs fixed in the next age. j Therefore, let us who know the Lord serve Him to our best ability." - FLORALA WILL HAVE A LARGE NEW BUILDING GROUND BEING PREPARED FOR THE ERECTION OF A FINE BUILDING FOR THE LAMAR BRITTON MERCANTILE CO. SPECIAL, TO THE JOURXAI Florala, Ala., March 15th, The work of clearing' the ground prejaratory to beginning- on the foundation of what will he Floralas biggest and best building was commenced yesterday.

The lot has long been vacant on ac count of the price at which it was held, and many have had longins: eyes upon it. However, everyone is pleased, now that a handsome building is to oc cupy the lot. Florala gets a new telephone line. Ci. W. "Watson, of the Liberty Hill farming district, was in the city yes terday taking subscriptions from busi ness men to pay for the erection of a telephone line which recently has been built from Xorth Creek church to the city. As usual the business men cam across handsomely and by helping1 the farmers with the line helped them selves toward getting more business. . Chautauqua Opens. A number of visitors are In the city to attend the Chautauqua which open ed last, night with most flattering prospects for a su-ccessf ul ten days session. "With the sale of season tick ets and admissions at the door the re ceipts amounted to a little under five hundred dollars. This is a record breaker for opening night and the stockholders are immensely pleased. Postmaster Sam Clark has given out the information that the receipts at the Florala postoffice continue to in crease. Business done during Febru ary, 191J, amounted to ten per cent more than in that month in 1912. " j Railroad Wreck.
