Fifty Millions For Roads. . State Senator Stringer, of Brooks villa, mo the news from Tallahassee says, .will fight for his proposed fifty million, dollar bond Issue for good roads to. the last ditch. His bill pro Tides for this stupendous bond issue to be paid la fifty years and calls fe a system of state roads that will con nect each county seat with at least two other county seats In the Ptate The Pensacola Journal, along with the great majority of, Florida people. has never taken the Stringer proposi tion seriously," but is ready to admit tfcat the proposal, however audacious, has In itself been conducive of good. The very fact that any considerable number of Intelligent people could con template spending $50,000,000 on Flor ida roads at one time, has concentrated the attention of the state on-the con dition of the country roads and has moreover centered the attention of the entire country on Florida. We do not hesitate to say the plan is impracticable. Should Florida issue ,$50,000,000 in bonds, they could not be sold, except perhaps at ruinous rates and even. If by chance they should be sold, the main object of the plan would it, locator! TTomeseekers would not fall over each other in frantic haste to buy property in a comparatively new and snarselr settled state carrying such a bond issue. Florida does need a system of state highways and this need is for the present time. We want these roads now. This is one of the Important questions which the present legislature is called upon to settle. It is a great and vital problem and should be dealt with wisely and carefully. The convict lease system will have to walk the plank. Modern civilization demands this and we believe that these nrnMmu Tnav in some way be tied in conjunction. The abolition of the lease "system should be made to contribute to the establishment of the state system of hard roads. Mexico and China both want to bor row money. Many other people in the same fix. Santa Rosa County Edition Next Sunday. For several weeks The Journal has been working on a special Santa Rosa County Edition wljich Is now almost complete and which will appear next Sunday. The Journal has Issued numerous county editions, but this will be the largest, and perhaps the best, that it has ever compiled. It amasedt The Journal, as it will no doubt amaze the public to find the wealth of material which Santa Rosa county affords for a work of this kind. The county is large In area, but its heavy timbered sections which here tofore have prevented the settlement of Its Jand for farming purposes and the lack of adequate rail and wagon road transportation, which is now being supplied, have kept the outside world from realizing how rich this county is In. soil resources and what tremendous possibilities lie within Its borders. Next Sunday. The Journal will tell something of the vastness and rich ness of Santa Rosa county and we know it will prove an Interesting story. : If Josephus Daniels will open up the Pensacola navy yard, he will be for given for wearing white socks. . Tariff Reform Sure to Come. No tariff law was ever enacted that was not to some degree the result of a compromise. The spirit of give and take must be employed, although in our high protection laws, it was usual ly the spirit of "take" that predomi nated. General Winfleld Scott Han cock was laughed at when he said the tariff was a local issue. Under the idea of protection. It Is that, pure und simple. But the democratic doctrine does not recognise the ' principle of prtoectlon. The Baltimore platform declares for a tsriff for revenue only and the present Indications are, at the fnal showdown, al'. the democrats In congress will vote for the Underwood tariff, bill when it GO JO BALKCOM'S ......for......

Calhoun Times. comes out of committee, although cer tain Items in some of the schedules may be objectionable to a few of the members. . s Economic conditions demand a gen eral reduction of the tariff all along the line. The high cost of living makes It a necessity. The democratic party demands It and the republicans were swept from power as if by a cy clone because they broke faith with the public on this question ., Business has been adjusting Itself to the coming reduction In tariff taxes for some time and with the enactment of the measure now being created the ccst of living will begin to gradually be reduced. . And no healthy and legit imate business will be interrupted. The esteemed Times-Union is vio lently opposed to Senator Stokes's "mental anguish" bill. Of course. Cost of Navy Construction. Some genius with a head for statis tics has been making up some com parative tables relative to the cost of some of the items In the maintenance of a modern navy. It costs $1,050 to lire one shot from a thlrteen-Inch gun. The damage to the gun is $555, making a total cost of $1,605. This amount would pay a good country school teacher three years or would give a boy a four-year course at a college or university. A thirteen-inch cannon costs $55,569 That Is a great deal more than many high schools or churches cost. The cost of what is termed a snperdread- naught is $15,000,000. This will build 6,000 new homes at $2,500 each. One modern battleship would build 15,000 miles of hard road. If the en tire cost of the maintenance of the navy were spent in road building, it would only be a few years before the United States would have the best sys tem of hard roads known to civiliza tion. The question might be asked, which serves the nation most, its ships or Its roads? Of course adequate armament for our national defense is necessary and this is Intended as no argument for a weak and Ineffective navy. It is writ ten to show the force cf comparative statistics and to illustrate the fearful Out of Sight Say, Hub, you of the Gazette, where are all those Milton widows you were raving about?

Even the fear of war, however remote, is taking billions of are the widows? Santa Rosa Star. dollars from the people. But the red phantom of war is forever in view. After the Pistol Toting Deputies. The bill prohibiting the wholesale appointment of deputies by the sheriffs, now pending in the legislature, is a meritorious one and should be and doubtless will be enacted into a law. It is an indication of a healthy con dition of affairs for the legislature to take steps to do away with ths. horde oc pisioi-ionng uepuues. . In some of the counties of the state conditions along these lines were un savory. Dozens of deputies were ap pointed in order that they might have a sort of legalized right to pack a gun and scores of other useless deputies were appointed for political effect. In some instances this great army of deputies were far below 'the average as law-abiding citizens. To call them peace officers would be ridiculous. , . e VOX POPULI. SAYS IT'S NOT THE SALOONS BUT THE ABUSE OF THEM times they turned the administration of Justice into a farce., . The proposed law requires that each deputy Shan give a bond of $1,000 pay able to the governor. Editor Pensacola Journal. There is a continuous stream of well meaning but narrow viewed people who are forever trying to compel their fellow men to do as they do: They have adopted certain lines of conduct, mostly severe and Puritanical; and, even as an Irishman thinks there is no place like Ireland, they are convinced that' their noses point to the one and only road leading to happiness here and hereafter. Perhaps there is no question con cerning which these thoroughgoing people are so rampant (and with some reason) as the saloon question. Where is no doubt that ever since wine was discovered in the far-off days of the Old Testament there have been saloons: and so long as the world lasts there will be saloons. One little crowd will disestablish them and another will At I resetablish them, here and there, and For good hard scrappers, the Daugh ters of the American Revolution are commended. , Spring has came.

Now watch brave .Claude LEngle humiliate the proud and haughty senate. now and again, away down through the centuries. X am of opinion that It is not the saloons but the abuse of them which causes all the trouble. I call to mind the advice of the late King Edward's physician wHen. after a severe illness, the king asked him what he should eat and drink and might he smoke, to which the reply was, "Eat what you like and drink what you like and smoke If you wish to, but do it all with moderation and good sense. Mustard and pepper and vinegar and tea. and coffee and all kinds of nice things are bad for us, yet we enjoy them and live, and we don't close the coffee houses because our lnsides are being tanned a rich, dark brown; no we just shuffle along and have another : and make the best of it under the dis tressing circumstances.

It Is almost as dangerous to be a king as a baseball umpire. After an, Vardaman went to Wash ington without a hair cut. Dr. Evans, Ex -Commissioner of Health, says: "There Is almost no re lation between skin diseases and the blood." The skin must be cured through the skin. The germs must be washed out, and so salves havelong ago been found worthless. The most advanced physicians of this country are now agreed on this, and are prescribing a wash of wintergreen, thymol and other ingredients for eczema and all other skin diseases. This compound is known as D. D. D. Prescription for Eczema. Dr. Holmes, the well known skin specialist writes: "I am convinced that the D. D. D. Prescription is as much a specific for eczema as quinine for ma laria. I have been prescribing the D. D. D. remedy for years." It will take away the itch the Instant you apply it.

The accident was unavoidable as the hill is so steep. Joseph was awfully sorry and we earnestly hope the little girl is not se riously wounded.

Joseph was educated at the convent school and hated so bad for i the Sisters of Mercy to read that he was under arrest.
