Fifty Millions
For Roads. .
State Senator Stringer, of Brooks

says, .will fight for his proposed fifty

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

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

tied in conjunction. The abolition
of the lease "system should be made
to contribute to the establishment of
the state system of hard roads.

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
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
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.

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

Economic conditions demand a gen

Cost of Navy
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?

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

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,

place like Ireland, they are convinced
that' their noses point to the one and
only road leading to happiness here

reason) as the saloon question.

I call to mind the advice of the late
