DE11DS A 81 FLORID A BIG GRAVING DOCK JACKSONVILLE NEWS EDITORI ALLY URGES ALL OF THIS SEC TION TO START BEHIND PENSA. COLA IN EFFORT TO GET PER MANENT NAVY YARD. .5ie Jacksonville News editorially '' fcirges all West Florida to stand behind VPensacoIa in the effort to get a per manent navy yard here, and In Tues day's issue the following appeared: AU of West Florida , should stand solidly behind Pensacola In its fight for a graving dock and a permanent ; Hy yard; The development uf Pen sacola means the growth of West raorida. The two candidates tor the United States senate and the tw- cm di dates for congress should be given to understand that a graving dock at Pensacola Is the paramount Issue at wus uma. The temporary quartering of ma rines at Pensacola, to be moved at will by an order of the secretary of the navy does not mean that the naval rtatlon will be opened for any length of time. Even If the machinery is put porary. But with a dock there work done at Warrington, unless there is a graving dock at Pensacola the rehabl iitatlon of the ward ma v be only tem porary. But with a dock here work would have to be sent to Pensacola. There was never any excuse for the etabUshment of a yard at Charleston, Senator TiUman was told bv. the pev pie of the Charleston district that he must get on the naval committee of the senate and stay there. He did so, find he opposed, in committee and on the floor, every appropriation asked top by the navy department until a navy yard was opened at Charleston. The congressman from West Florida, whoever he may be. should be given -ce understand that he is to secure a 9'SiQ vij tojo uebvcLa wnuiuiico even li. .he secures no other committee ap pointment. And If at any time his per fccmal ambitions lead him tst believe that something else is more import ant, he sbould immediately be given the option of attending strictly to the 3rensacola navy yard proposition or ooming home. What the Third district wants i3 a ITaving dock which will insure per imanent work at the Pensacola navy jvd and that'deck must be secured at tny cost. . .T "V1 t- . jlncw wricans Jfutures. New Orleans, Dec, 20. Cotton fu tures opened steady at & decldne of 12 to 17 points on the large rinnlcg re turns in the report issued by the cen airs bureau. The total of 12,923,608 t?ils ginned prior to December 13 was B rer 100,009 bales larger than general ly expected and caused a selling wave ft soon as the market opened. Bears claimed that the large amount of Got ten already ginned was proof positive tlt&t the government underestimated the crop In Its recent estimate. On the i titer hand the bulls contended that running was heavy because weather conditions were favorable. The market continued to fall after the call and at the nd of the first hidt hour of business stood 21 to 23 gwinta under yesterday's dose. Although .. much profit-taking was one by the short side during the morning, no reaction from the decline of any consequence took place. This eemed to be due to heavy liquidating sales of long cotton by discouraged 5ldrs. it was also said that consid erable numbers of stop loss orders were being . reached on the long side vhica was not thought strang consid ering that at the lowest of the morn ing, new low levels were established for both the week and season. At the lowest the trading months rer 34 to 37 points under yesterday's dose. Reactions of a half dozen points or so from this level occurred in the late 6es3 Ion, but they were only Tem porary. The market closed steady at th.9 decline at a nest loss for the day of S2 to 36 points. 4 YESTERDAY'S WEATHER, United States department of agricul ture, weather bureau. Charles F. Mar vin, chief.
