First Veto Message Bill Passes Senate Incorporat ing the Town of Molino. BY J. HUGH REESE. Tallahassee. May 29. The first veto message of the governor was sent In this afternoon, being- the non-approval of the art to abolish the government of Hastings and organize a town with new boundaries. The governor's veto was based on the action of the St Johns representatives, who first advo cated the measure and then asked that the measure be kUled. Both branches did good work today In ridding the calendar of a number of local measures. With only eight more working days there Is little time to lose. Acosta. asked for a ruling of the chair on what constitutes a legis lative day. He was opposing the night sessions that are wearing on the nerves of the members and the attaches. He cited the constitution, which Bays that the legislative session shall be not Icnger than sixty days and the dic tionary definition which says that a dfy consists ofthe time of light be tween one night and the next, also the Biblical statement that a day is from the rising of the sun to the setting of the sun. Acosta's Inquiry "was ruled out of or der but the chair made no ruling on the question itself.

Queenstown, May 29. The American line steamer Haverford went ashore today in a dense fog in the vicinity of Daunt Rock, which she i supposed to have struck. She is taking water forward and has requested tugs to disembark her pas sengers. She is believed to have about 1,000 rassengers. or wnom iau are secona class and the remainder steerage. The Haverford took a large number of passengers on board at Liverpool for Pniladelphia. The sea is smooth, but the shore along this coast is very rocky. The fog continues dense. Daunt Rock is a pinnacle shaped submerged rock about five and a half miles southwest of the entrance of Cork harbor. It lies under ten feet of water and rises from a rocky bed of considerable size. Several tugs have been sent out to the Haverford's assistance. The liner was said to have struck the rocks during a dense tog. She is command ed by Captain Evans. The Haverford suffered from a serious explosion on board at Liverpool in July. 1906, when twelve persons were killed and forty injured. Sbe was built in 1901. Her length is 531 feet and her breadth of beam is 59 feet. Her gross tonnage is 11,635 and her net tonnage 7,493.

Reddig said he had not been in Wood's employ since last November. He recalled his movements on the night of January 19. 1912. That even ing he drove Atteaux in a touring car from Roston to Andover. He spent th night .it his own home. He did not take out his car the next mo-rning, so far a to nld remember. Two tuffs which left the Haverford with 700 passengers on board reached Queenstown this afternoon. The tug Hellespont and another tug are still alongside the liner so there is little doubt that all the passengers and crew will be saved. Tbe government and other tugs found the Haverford at about 6 o'clock this afternoon. She had struck on the rocks off Cork. hid west of Queens town and not on Daunt Rook as had been supposed. The passengers are being takeu off. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Chattanooga. Tenn., May 29. Proud ly bearing tattered battle-flags dimmed by powder, smoke and time, the gray clad survivors of the Confederate army today marched through streets walled cn each side with cheering thousands. Standards borne by cavalrymen almost encountered overhead arches formed of entwined Confederate and United States fags. Nearly a thousand of the gray haired veterans were mounted on the prancing horses of the eleventh United States cavalry tendered by Fort Ogle thorpe officials and offering another mute testimonial of the burial of the bitterness which characterized the war between the states. Hundreds of applauding spectators wMo witnessed the impressive sight were moved to tears by the flood of memories it aroused. No division appeared in a semblance cf its entirety. Only a few staunch survivors were left of the more than 600,000 soldiers who represented the Confederacy in the fiercest struggle of modern times. From the moment General Beniett H. Young, commander-in-chief of the United Confederate Veterans appeared, accompanied by his staff, until tha is.t detachment of veterans passed, the firmament was rent with shouts and applause. General Young's staff was followed by the eleventh United States cavalry band, the survivors of the trans-Mis- 1 sisslppi department, the department of northern Virginia, the department of Tennessee, Forrest's cavalry c rp3 and 1,000 mounted veterans. Interspersed among the different commands were the sponsors of the dirisins of the United Confederate Veterans, In each Instance followed by ased soldiers riding in automobile.

Including j grown-up children, are to have a hip ; afternoon with Pamahssika (pro i nouneed Parmerhasslker) and his pe's. tne Alkahest Company says: "In presenting Pamahasika and his pets on our circuit Chautauquas last season, we did so with a venture, not knowing how an attraction of this kind would be received by our patrons. But we believed an opportunity should be given the people, especially the chil dren, to see an attraction of this na ture under prpper auspices, and our Judgment was confirmed by the uni versal favDr with which PamahaslVi and his pets were received. No more popular attraction was offered last year, and the demand for his return has been so great that we have de cided to bring him and his pets back for another tour through our section. We know that the children will rejoice when they hear that Pamahasika and his pets are coming again, and if for no other reason than to please them we would gladly present this company again." INDIAN ORCHESTRA. Another great feature will be the Iroqouis Indian Orchestra, who will play selections during the afternoon performance; and, in the evening, will give a full orchestral concert. Pensacola has never before had an opportunity to enjoy two such unique performances in one day, and it will be very surprising if the Keyser audi torium is not packed with record au diences on both occasions. It is strongly advised that those who do not wish to miss these great pro ductions should arrive well before time. The Alkahest announcement con cerning the Iroquois Indian Orchestra reads thus: ! "The program this year will include not only a splendid orchestra as the opening number, but also the Iroquois Indian Orchestra in grind concert, on the fifth day, thus giving the Chau tauqua patrons the benefit of two splendid orchestras during the session of six days. Chief David Russell Hill, a full blooded Indian, is the conductor of the Iroquois orchestra, which con sists of soloists picked from the best Indian artists in America all are graduates from some Institution of learning, and are musicians of rare ability. The orchestra appears in their native Indian costumes, playing selec tions listed on the best symphony pro grams, thus presenting a spectacle of historic meaning, coupled with the best to be found in orchestra music. The Indian wedding scene will be one of the interesting events of the pro gram." Dr. Dent Atkinson win lecture In the morning at 10 o'clock, and his subject will be "EDistles." This lecture is free and everyone is invited. It is the last opportunity but one to hear this ji-stly celebrated speaker, who will al ways be warmly remembered by all who have had the privilege of meeting and hearing him. A J.iurn.il rf ir'Si?!it;tti e yesterday went over the Pensacola, Mobile & New Orleans railroad Lhat Henry Mc Laughlin now has under construction and the trip was nothing short of a revelation. The route from Pennaroli to Mobile bay is approximately SI miles and rail is laid for HH of those miles out of Pensacola. 'Die balance of the route. 18 miles, is all graded and simply awaits the steel rails, which can easily be laid in 6' days, to give an fl-rail onnection between Pi-nsncola and Mo bile bay. The 33-mile ride out of Pensacola to the end of the completed track is an interesting and attractive trip. Run ning northwest from Pensacola, the road crosses the Perdtdo river Just above the Nunez Ferry and then fol lows the valley of the beautiful Styx river for Home 1ft miles where grades are easy and construction could be most advantageously accomplished. Crossing the .Styx, the route continues northwesterly and the end cf the rail construction is now within sfx miles of I.oxley, on the Bay Minettc branch of the I.. & N". The roadbed of this McLaughlin rail road will compare favorably with that of some of the trunk lines doing busi ness in Florida. It is not as good as the L. Sr N. there is r.o reason now why it should be but It is as good as the Seaboard Air Line roadbed and ir is good enouKh to handle a tremen dous amount of traffic for years to come. With one exception there is not a grade that is as much as one per cent and this one exception can be cut flown in a week's time with a small force of men. The route traverses one of the richest sections of Baldwin county and the people on both sidea are already clamoring for a regular schedule into Pensacola by which their timber, lum ber, naval stores, and farm products can be shipped to the Deep Water City where they will in turn buy groceries, feed, hardware, furniture, fertilizer and other, necessities for the development of the new section. The McLaugh!ln railroad is goinar to be a big feeder for Pensacola and Pen sacolians will be grateful to know that the work already done is of so sub stantial a character.

They Kailcd tn Arrive in Time for tin Afternoon Session, hut the Ptihlic was More than Compensated by the Fine Program of Last Xiht Dr. Atkinson Delivers Final Lecture. IRV CILFILLAN SCOTT, t The fourth day of Pensacola's tirst Chautauqua pro ci another day of success. Doctor Dfnt Ail; in son and the Cambridge players bcirg the attrac tions. As each day nrrhos the (;mii continue to arrive and to increii.se, aiirl the I'l omotcrs arc to be mngra t nln t eit upon the ureat sucrem attending thi first attempt to ostahlish a Chautau qua system in the city, there being no longer any doubt of the wisdom of making it an annual event. The afternoon session of the Chau tauqua was devoted to a lecture by Dr. Dent Atkinson entitled, "I'-our-Faced People." Those who had the g 1 fortune to be present at the First .Methodist, church last Sunday evening, when l)r. Atkinson addressed one of the largest. oongreg;i t ion that church has ever held, came in great expectation of hearing something worth while, nnd they were not disappointed. Doctor Atkinson has drawn experi ences of all kinds from all sources and in all parts of the world: anil, when he undertakes to speak for an hour, it means that he has something to say; that he will give his hearers some of the results of his experience, whereby they may profit 8nd at the same time be entertained. Philosophy and wisdom of conduct, were the keynotes of his addres. which was couched in simple, direct language, full of illustrations and apt similes which held the attention of his audience and called for frequent applause. BELIEVES IN CHEERFULNESS.. Doctor Atkinson is a great believer in cheerfulness; he believes cheerful ness is a habit we can cultivate as well as the ability to smil?; and that grouchiness is also a, habit as well as the inability to smile; that whichever habit we cultivate is the habit which will grow, and we will get a resulting crop of happiness or unhappiness ac cordingly. Many of us are like an old buggy which goes on squeaking and groaning for want of a little axle-greaae. And the same mental condition causes us to notice only the freckles and the warts on our neighbors faces, forgetting all the rest of the complex ion. We could avoid many of the hard knocks we get if we were habitually cheerful, for the world never hits' a cheerful face. We should cultivate the habit of saying 'good morning" and of looking as if it were a good morn ing. The world Is a mirror itrul we nee in it the reflection of our own minds, a mt it looks good or bad according to our mental attitude. The man who wants to lie thought a lot of may become a general, but will certainly be a general nuisance. A monkey can't smile, why should we imitate the monkey If we don't feel like smiling let us smile as a matter of duty to our neighbors and smiling will become a habit which will draw our neighbors nearer to us, whilst frowns will drive them awav.
