Chicago. Detroit. Kenaaa City, Atlanta TUESDAY MORN WO, AFSIfc th PROTECTION OF CO IPETHTON. There la unfortunately ft dirpesition on the part of some people to record with a of suspicion and distrust a business or an industry which crows rapidly and is exceptionally pros perous, and an unwarranted fesHnjr. that its achievements are brought about by unfair meth cds, says Edward N. Hurley, chairman of the United States Shipping Ecsrd. Tate for ex ample, a business that was alerted with very limited capital, but through the individual ini . tiative and skill of the mn interested, has crown so that the capital invested reaches mil lions of dollars and is paying r substantial and J;itimate dividends. . The business has never violated ethics or law and is not a party to any combination or trust of any kind. It recognizes the rights of labor from every modern stand point. Its chief effort has been to attend to its own affairs, to produce its' ware aat the mini mum of expense, and its selling force has as its main esdaavdr the marketing of its products at the lowest possible price consistent wtih tha cost of. production. Its policy has been to increase the volume of production to the maximum and to reduce, overhead expenses to the minimum: Such a concern should be considered a model American enterprise.' The fact that it is pros perinc by reason of its enterprise and its effi cient methods is wholesome encouragement to others. If such a business makes its profit by reducing its costs, and thereby gives the public the benefit of it efficiency, it should receive commendation rather than censure. : It would be easy to name a score of new de velopments in American business which have greatly increased . prosperity without taking away the slightest profit from any other devel opment. Most of us can recall when there were no automobiles. Large profits have been mada out of this industry without the slightest detri ment to any other industry, i That was a typical m .-m m a m m mm m m m m w mm m mmm m mm mm m- mm mm mm mm mm mm mtmrm mm m mm m mm m w was cone by the evolution of the electrical indus try, end Virtually by every new invention. In fact the very establishment of a new in dustry, or a new market, creates business for other industries only remotely related. The au tomobile helped the oil industry, and so it goes on in an endless chain. It Is the spirit of mutual helpfulness which has made the United States the greatest pro ducinj nation in the world. So long as we have fair play among business men, the public inter est unquestionably , will be protected by the en ergetic competition among concerns, each try ing to render better service than the other. The supreme court has held that mere size is no crime, but that no industry should be per mitted to accumulate such power as could be uaad to monopolize the market. It is in the wrongful use of power rather than in the power itself, that the' evil lies. The business men of the countrty have been educated to understand where the ponit of monopoly is reached. They realiat that it is better for industry, as well as for the countrty as a whois, to hsve no mcss olijs. pu$ an industry of wholesome sise, which still has healthy competition shou!4 be regarded with national pride. Men everywhere have the inalienably right to try any form of government that doesn't con flict with the Ten Points Moses brought down frc:a the mountain. Exports in March were valued at $05,000,- ooo, but at present prices it doesn't take much o be worth that. Eefore adopting this mandatory plan, better f wait and see whether England makes hers stick! mi Egypt, . J OUR MUNICIPAL CREED. Never in the history of Pensaeola have its citi zens been joined together in such firm and pub lie-spirited bonds as those created by the past two years of wan Now is the time to begin harvesting the fruit of this, war-engendered spirit of co-operation. The great liberty Loan campaigns and aUied war relief derives, all our big celebrations and patriotic rallies, this whole era of intensive pub lie speaking, community organization, mutual co-operation, and self-sacrifice for a common cauth3s things have resulted in an unpre cedented civic enthusiasm. They have vitalized and dramatized for us our city's heart and soul. f j ' Shall all this enthusiasm be mere froth, to be blown away in the first light zephyrs of nesetto?v-f:- , ' Shall it not rather be crystalized at once and forever, into an intense and universay civic loy alty a deepening faith in our city, which will soon prove to be Pensacola's richest asset? - The answer rests in the daily thoughts and deeds of each and all of usl Let us start right now while the power of our war-created community spiritMs still strong within us -to boots our home town and our home town's institutions; to come to bat for our own local industries; to patronize our own mer chants and our own banks ; to stand by our schools, churches and charities. The greater wealth, the greater happiness, the greater well-being of each of us individually and of all collectively, is the aim. ; A city united, self-reliant, secure in its grow ing prosperity, will be the sure result. Let this, then, be the quintessence of our creed; "2 J V: v;' ;;;,'?.: To know our city, to believe in it, to stick to t, to work for it, to be loyal to it today, and to to rally to every policy looking toward its better ment tomorrow. For we believe that only as we recognize our essentia solidarity, our common allegiance not only to the institutions of the nation as a whole, but also to the institutions of this community in which we have chosen to live o:ily thus can we realize to the full in our own liv&3 end homes the blessings of peace and prosperity, the ideal of social service and democracy for which the war was fought and won. . - and Ezras H - 22 5 LEGISI-ATIVE 01DS m aQflBBOQQDaf ?

Clothes don't "make" a man, and a scrubbed face doesn't make the map of ojie'a soul, but the scenic effect of a summer holiday is more at tractive because there Are more clean collars and clean faces in the crowds. What cleaning up and dressing up does for one's self, 'it will do for one's dewillngirs..arNaeit one's self, it will do for one's dwelling place, the house, the yard, the back alley and the front street. It will bring more brightness, happiness and al the other material pleasures of life into the corner of the world you occupy. Also, it is sanitary, and therefore lengthens life cs it short ens doctors' bills. You may scatter parks throughout a city. You may , build sky-scrapers, : city halls, imposing monuments, fountains, and public bud:;igs, but still be far from a city beautiful. Nor do any of those things make it a city healthful. For a city is nothing more or less than a col lection of homes. v That city with comfortable, clean, sanitarr, inviting homes is a city beautiful to human eyes. In the printed espies of Senate Bill No. 17, relating to the aaseesment and collection of revenue, the author of the measure is stated as belns; Senator An drew a. when tha bill was intro duced and fathered by Representative Anderson of the. Sixth district. The blU will not he reprinted, but it was asked by the secretary of the senate that the press state that the author qf the blU is Mr. Anderson. If Senator Mac Williams introduces any no-fence law for St. Johns county, it wiU net only contain a referendum, but it will provide that the question shall be settled by a majority of the people residing outside of the incorpor ated towns of that county. He feels that the country people alone should decide questions ; that concern them and them only. ' " Recently Senator Stokes was called to the chair by President Calkins and impressed the members of that digni fled body with his fairness and ability as a presiding officer. But old-timers here were not surprised, because they recalled the session when Hon. Ion I. Farris was speaker and Mr. Stokes was speaker pro tern- Mr. Stokes pre sided over the house a great deal of the time that Mr. Farris was on , the floor and became quite familiar with parlla mentary practice, -A bill will be introduced In a few days providing that the testimony of detective shall not be accepted in ceurt unless substantiated by other evidence. Senator Mac Williams was made happy Sunday by the arrival by motor from St. Augustine 9f Mrs, Mas Wil liams, his son, Emmett Mac Williams, his two daughters, Mrs. E, ?Toble Cal houn, of St. Augustine, and Mrs- H. t Hendrichs,-of Bunnell, and their chil dren. Mr. Calhoqn, who is a promi nent attorney of the ancient citjf, and Mr. Hendrichs, who is a banker of Bunnell, also accompanied the party, coming in two automobiles. They ar rived lale Saturday pigut. 2 LEGISLATORS AND r3S! ; Wk vSp m . culed are really a very clever and weU informed set of men. it is but natural that environment and training should weigh something in the formation of the opinions of legislators as well as other folks, but no set of men more readily yield to the opinions of others when shown the fallacy of their own. Ridicule, though, never accomplishes this. LEGISLATION 4 (By JOHN C. TRICE.) Tallahassee, April 27: Somebody has missed a guess, or else Mr. Bu&to, the affable and well-intention ed represent tative from Key West, has introduced a measure in the bouse that is goto? to stir up a good -sized hornet's nest. Reference is made to his rold-wifery bill. y It provides that no one shall practice ; midwifery anywhere until they have secured a certificate from the regularly constituted medical ex amining board. Ths house has just killed a bill of Pr, Hamblin. of Hillsborough county, containing the same . provisions, but effective only in towns of 2,500 popu lation and over. The mem bars saemed to bo afraid of that, Tb! 'ast one will bi-ing about more trouble than the other. It will in all likeHbood.arouse the members from, the rrl districTa into a solid flyh ting body, For . who smong them but reverence? the good I old woman at home who could not seevre a certificate from any Hind of a medical examining board, but - whose tm can in the back yard, the lack of rubbish Zl the alley, and the failure to find broken glass ;n the street. j , O'd soldiers in this section have i t n fiintU A that raMu-a AV mM VWa Block after block, street after street, of suci nt worn sinoe the war nnces homes make a city beautiful.

It is doing to the outside of your home what tho wife does to the inside In her spring housecleaning. And there is material profit in owning such a home. And in having neighbors' who clean up, paint up and dress up their dwelling places. For it increases the value of your property to do this. Thus it increases your wealth, not only what you do to your house and yard, but what your neigh peri do to theirs. y .
