SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14. 1918, CATTS CONDEMNS HIMSELF. Catts, having bolted, is not even following the letter of the Democratic party. He has never followed its spirit. The Democratic national platform con tains this plank: "Whoever, by arousing prejudices of a racial, religious; or other nature, creates discord or strife among our people so as to obstruct the wholesome process of uni fication, is faithless to the trust which the privilege's of citizenship repose in him and disloyal to his country." " Of the five candidates who contended for the primary nomination of June 6, which of them violated this cardinal principle? Reasoning as he did, it would be a mir acle if Catts had not bolted the Democratic party, whose principles he abhorred, whose residential nominees he is said to have c1or?prA1 fiWUnor tiinKsplf wronjred.

Knott is a man of irreproach able character, of proved ability, and staunchest Democrat. Every Demo crat who voted in the primary is bound by oath to support him at the poil3 on November 7, and no Demo crat who did not vote in that primary has a shadow of reason as a Demo crat not to support him. Republicans, Prohibitionists and Socialists should and presumably will support their respective party nominees; but unless a good many thousands of Democrats cease to be Democrats on November 7. W.

Apalachi cola Times. . Editor The Journal: In looking around Pensacola I find so many of the vacant lots and a good many occupied lots that have grown up to" weeds and brush and rubbish scattered all about and buildines di-i lapidated I believe it would be a good idea to start cleaning up by nrst cut- ;mg down the weeds and by the time we get that done it will look so nice and such a vast improvement that wo will want to keep on until we get entirely cleaned up. Now, this won t cost anything only a little labor on our part, and it will all be done. If we were one-halt as enthusiastic about keeping our city clean as we are about baseball we would soon have the most beautiful city in the world. 'After makincr two trips around the world I have decided to make Pensa cola my future home. "After visiting a majority of the countries of the world I have concluded that Florid is the garden spot of the world, and Pensacola is my ideal town of the state. Let us clean up and then boost and we will soon have a city of 100, 000 inhabitants. What do you say? J. M. CUMMINS.
