The Legislature and
the Wailes Claim
The treatment which the claim of
CoL S. I; Wailes for services rendered
to the state of Florida has received at
the hands of the present legislature is
anything but creditable to- that body;
Men that would spurn the idea of re
pudiating a personal debt have not
hesitated to put the state of Florida
In the attitude ct refusing to pay a
jptate obligation;
All that the aged claimant, desired
foras to be permitted to enter suit and
prove his claim in court Ha was
willing: to take his ease Into the courts
' end abide by the verdict thereof.
If his claim was good and the courts
so decided; then every honest citizen
tf Florida would desire that it be paid.
I the claim was bad If Colonel Wailes
was unable t sustain It in the courts
t then no citizen of the state had any
thing- to fean
.The Journal is unable to understand
on what ground the legislature could
bave turned the proposition made by
Colonel Wailes down. The reason,
Whatever It was, does not look at all
, creditable. . -

Secretary Bryan's
Dry Dinner.
Secretary of State Bryan gave a'
email dinner to a number of represen
tatives of foreign governments at
Washington. Both Mr. Bryan and his
wife are teetotalers from principle and
neither drink wine nor eerve it at
their tables. There was no wine at
this diplomatic dinner.
A number of Bryan baiters,, and
they are numerous in republican cir
cles, seized upon this little incident
n an excuse for another fierce attack
on the Nebraskan. These Bryan critics
care nothing about the wine on the
cable, either one way or another, but
they do dislike the secretary of state
fend since he drove the moneychangers
from the temple at Baltimore this dis
like has grown Into a deep and abid
ing hatred.
The story of the tiinner is to the ef
fect that Mr. Bryan explained to the
ambassadors that It was a matter of
principle with Mrs. Bryan and himself
and the diplomats applauded his re
marks and & more pleasant evening
was never spent.
Anyway, the peace and gcod will be
tween nations do not depend on wine
tuppers. The civilization of the times
Ctoes not askj a man either to drink if
bo does not want to or to serve drinks
against his personal scruples. And be
sides it is not likely that any foreign
diplomat will set angry and demand
tils passports because Mr. Bryan did
mot pass the grog.
Moreover these same critics would
tiave assailed Mr. Bryan as' harshly
had he served wine. They are Bryan
baiters. That's all.

How the Fee
System Works.
The story goes that a man died in
Jersey City four years ago, leaving
property valued at $2,600. He left no
will and had something like twenty
relatives to inherit the property. The
courts stepped -in to settle the estate
and it was finally disposed of last
week. The lawyer who looked after
the business was award-d a fee of $1
000 and all the court officers and hang-

on final settlement the heirs got exact

This may be an extreme case, but
others are on record. Just as absurd
and ridiculous. ;
It may be remarked Ihat this reads
like the history of the wlndhis up of
tbe affairs of many a defunct bank.
The collars so out for fees and the
five-cent pieces are riven to the de
positors. The fee system, in all its phases,
mcods and tenses, is a marvelous in-stitation.

DESCRIBES CONDITIONS IN

talned an account of the imprisonment ;
of a sane woman in an insane asylum.
This la not so rare an oeeurreree as
some way think,
The Journal also has an article on
the forcible feeding of women in Eng
land. People read these things with
feelings of horror, but they do hot
know how often they occur in this
country. J ' have seen the same cruel
treatment of women in the South, not
once, but many times. Not only this,
'but I. myself, have been "forcibly fed."
and only those who have suffered. know J
how cruelly painful and humiliating
it Is, When I was carried from Flor- I
papers. Judge, Jury or examination and
locked up in an Insane asylum, I could
not eat their coarse food, often half
cooked and always served on tin
plates, chunks of fat meat with skin
and hairs on . It, vegetables half
cleaned by Insane patients. Only a
low half partition separated the men's
dining room from the women, and the
rattle j of tin plates and Iron knives
and forks on the bare tables, while
five or six hundred Insane men and
women talked, laughed, sang or cried,
almost but thank God not quite
drove me crazy. In that place I could
not have swallowed the daintiest food
ever set before a " queen, so they re
sorted to forcible feeding. Two wom
en held my arms, a third stood behind
me and. bent my head back, while an
other, with a biff iron spoon, shoveled
the vile, greasy food down my throat.
The men looked on, laughing and
jeering'. A patient dared not show
sympathy if they felt it, although one
day when I was too weak to walk
after the cruel feeding was over. & big
crazy woman snatched me up in her
arms and carried me through the long
room, across the bridge leading to the
wards and laid me on my bed. She
cursed every step, of the way, with
curses not loud but deep, but her touch
was tender as a mother's. I preferred
her profanity with kindness, to the
Bible reading' and church-going at
tendants, with cruelty.
I eaw patients fed with a rubber
pipe but never endured that form of
suffering myself. Ignorance of the law
Is the cause of many women being sent
to insane asylums.
When they have a voioe in the mak
ing of laws they will know what their
rights are and it wiQ not be so easy
for a man to bury bis wife in an insane
asylum.
ALICE SHEAR,
EXPLAINS ENTERTAINMENT TO
BE GIVEN THE SECRETARY
Editor Pensacola Journal.
I want to correct some erroneous
ideas which seem to prevail regarding
the proposed entertainment of the sec
retary of the navy.
Tickets must be purchased to the
luncheon. The price is $2.00. Partici
pation in the boat trip will be by in
vitation from the commercial associa
tion. There is no connection between
the two, except that in selecting
guests for the boat party, we shall
be inclined to ask those who will
afterwards attend the luncheon. B
yond the out-of-town guests, the ca
pacity of the boat will be limited to
one hundred or less. Both the
luncheon and bay party will be "stag."
However, we are planning to have a
reception for the ladies, to Mrs. Dan
iels at the San Carlos about 3 o'clock
in the afternoon.
We are not going to entertain Mr.
Daniels so much that we will have no
time to show and attempt to convince
him. He is to be here a day. Our
program calls for a half day of inspec
tion and conference with a small com
mittee, first, the other and latter half
of the day to be occupied In public
entertainment. I think both are de
sirable and may be effective.

Pittsburg, April 29. The board of
education of this city would be glad
to know how to get out of a very un
pleasant situation. It has 'undertaken
to stand by Supt. S. L. Heeter despite
the scandal connected with hl3 name,
and the ensuing strike of hundreds of
school children has made the board
very nervous.
Supt. Heeter was accused by Ethel
Iva Fisher, a domestic in his home.
He was indicted, but when tried was
acquitted. Two other girls who wished
to tell what they knew of Heeter were
not permitted by the judge to testify.
Following' the acquittal, Supt. Heeter
promptly resumed his school duties.

PECULIAR DECISION BY
COMMERCE COMMISSION
ANNIVERSARY
IS CELEBRATED
Washington, April 30. In a case
unique in the history of the interstate
commerce commission, it was decided
today that a tunnel 1,200 feet long,
wholly within the state limits of Ken
tucky, made the traffic via the Balti
more and Ohio from Huntington, W.
Va, to points on the Norfolk and
Western in the same state, interstate
traffic, although only the tunnel is
without the West Virginia line. The
rates on steel rails and like com
modies shipped by that route were
unreasonable and reduced them.
