March 8. 1?P. Avresented In the Oenreal Advertising Field by CONE. LORENZEN & WOODMAN New York. Chicago Detroit Kansas City Atlanta proposed to be undertaken in Russia. There is no intention on the part of the United States government to make use of Russia. It is simply a question of the nature of the aid to be extend ed. The French and the British governments take the point of view that economic intervention will be of no avail and that a military force suf ficient to maintain order will be necessary. The Japanese government will probably follow what ever course is suggested by Great Britain and approved by the United States. It is assumed, in view of what is apparently haPDenimr in Russia, and the decision of the allied governments, that tne President soon will decide whether definite, action is to be taken or whether the further drift of events shall be awaited, before a policy with regard to Russia is formulated. . . . - COMMENDABLE ACTION The city commissioners are to be commended upon having given their cooperation to the gov ernment in the establishing of an Extra Can- PEACE TERMS Until Germany accepts the "conditions - laid down by President Wilson she cannot have peace, and she can have peace tomorrow if she accepts them.

The decision to act and the method of proceeding is understood to be in the hands of President Wilson. Dispatches bearing on, con ditions in Russia show that the plight of that nation is growing even worse. Upon President Wilson the Entente Powers wait. The Allied War Councilsitting at Ver sailles, has come to the conclusion that steps ehould be taken immediately, if Russia is to be saved from the dutches of Germany. General Foch, the , supreme commander of the allied forces on the western front, is said to" have ar rived at the same conclusion. As yet there is no indication from the White House as to what the President will do. There is even no indication when he will give his de cision. It is known that for several weeks he ; has been considering the problem with a more or less open mind. There are those of his advisers who assert confidently that he will not approve intervention except through the ministrations of an economic ccnmission, the purpose of which "will be to help the Russians out of their pre- tscat difficulties. There are others that have been given the impression that the President has 1v been awaiting the opinion of the military com manders on the Western front. war you could not get here. His advisers said that all the ships would be sunk and there would be no means remaining to bring you across the sea. "But you are here. Not a part of a force of a few thousands, but a part of a force of hundreds of thousands, to fight for justice and the freedom of the world. "We are grateful that you are hereo fight, but of course you are not fierhtincr onlv for America, not only for France, which is suffering more than any nation in the world has ever suf fered, you are fighting; for the liberties of the world." President Wilson has made it clear what we are fighting for. If the Kaiser and his advisers will accept the conditions voiced by the president they can have peace with America, peace with France, peace with Great Britain tomorrow. But he has given no indication of an intention to do so. Because he will not do so is the very reason we are all fighting. It is not that we covet a single yard of German soil that we are fighting. Not because we desire to dispossess Germany of her inheritance. No because we desire to deprive the German people of their legitimate rights. We are fighting for the great principles of liberty, laid down by the president. L. M. Rose, state marketing commis sioner, who was Here a few days since, has been explaining a misquoted por tion of his speech which the resreses- tatlTo of a Jacksonville paper seat from here. This appeared in the Jack sonville Metropolis lately: "A telegraphic item in the Metropolis yesterday in Pensacola," says L hi. Hose. State Marketing Commissioner, "made mention of a meeting in the Deep Water aty to organize a market ing organization, ' and noted some ' re- marks I mads in connection with- com plaints made to the State Marketing Bureau that merchants had bought products from . growers or producers at small prices and sold to buyers and consumers at- exorbitant eost, and If consumers bought from a farmer the merchant, therefore refused to buy any thing - from him or sell .to , the con sumer.- made no : mention of merchants, but said the charge had been made against certain street peddlers or huck sters, and if that was true all the sharks were not in the bay and gulf I said that condition was one the State Marketing Bureau could not correct, it Demg a matter for the city. It could take away the license of anyone con victed of gross irregularities or im positions of that sort and fliSt would prevent the evil. No class of men should be allowed to farm the farmer at one end of the line and consume the consumer at the other end, work ing the middle and both ends. - Merphants who are regularly in business are honest and patriotic as rule, and they could not afford to be otherwise, but the itinerant peddler might consistently play a game of that sort, and when caught playing it could be summarily put out of business.

The city or town can regulate affairs of the sort com plained of.

It has the namps and standing of every buyer T5f proTKiee in Tne Cnited States, and snip pers can get reliable information on application. , "Letters are on ' file in the Bureau from farmers and shtyrrs wherein complaint is made of shipments for which no pay has been'made. In erery case smpments were to firms or.' in dividuals without commercial standing or reliability, this in face of the fact that there are plenty of responsible firms, and their names can be had. "When producers get together in or ganization, grow uniform products and grade and pack them properly, do bus! ness in a business-like way, and mass connections with reliable buyers, they will realize what is due them as the real creators of all business.

BRYAN VAUGHN IN CONSUL SERRVICE BUSY DAY 1 COURT OF OEW Two jury trials and taking pleas of about half a dozen prisoners mad up quite a busy day in the court of record yesterday. Adjournment was taken early in the afternoon. The first Jury trial was a civil ac tion. This was a case wherein the Peoples bank was plaintiff and Chaa. B- Hervey was defendant, the case re sulting in a verdict for the plaintiff, an award of $170.71 being made. Emma Mock, a white - woman, was tried by Jury and found guilty. She was fined $10 and costs or 46 days.

Uoyd Bragg, 58 day. Dora Thomas, costs or 80 days. . Henry Lucas, larceny, GO days. Bryan Vaughn, 21 years of age. son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Vaughn, of a0 East Chase street, may some day be a fully accredited consul of the Uni ted States government, for his parents were .yesterday notified that he had been offered and had accepted an ap pointment as attache to thft Tnited Stales consul at Toronto. Canada, and, in fact, had already taken up his station and duties at that point. Pen sacola freinds of the young man will be pleased to learn of tha recognition which the government has thus ac corded him. Leaving here some months ago, the young Pensacolian secured an ap pointment in the ordinance depart ment. Washington, which he has evi dently filled with so much credit to himBelf and the government that his talents have been recognized in the manner above detailed. Entering the consul service, although . only as an attache, gives him a chance to get higher, hence the probability of him being on a foreign station in a moro responsible capacity In due time.
