Petticoat Lane has awakened from its loss leep, imposed by the war and the rigors of an unusually wet winter and with the coming of spring? fairly hums with life, trade and dirt, Petticoat Lane is more of a district than a street, for there are a number of streets, and each one carries the same curb markets and the same mot ley crowd of traders and sightseers. It is within five minutes walk of some of the moat important financial in stitutions in the world, and on the edge of that interesting section known REVENUE BHX WAS BONE OF .. COPffiMON Tallahassee, May 24. The general revenue , bill which passed yesterday was a bone of contention in the house. It is a committee bill, prepared by the house and senate committees working together, and contemplates soiue rather radical changes in the present method levying, collecting and making .final settlement on tax books. Early in the session the house passed a resolution setting forth that this bill should be presented much earlier in th esession, and that it should be disposed of not later than the 20th of the present month. Then it is presumed that most J as the East End where royalty and of the members forgot about the mat- U Lilt 1 3 XicLVO I uucU Li V uisutvcicu uivi o a ici , iui auvub Liia itio ucuucu - - i .

Petticoat Lane is lined with stalls, some of them covered, some of them open to the elements, and all of tnem mounted on wheels. Here may be found for . sale almost everything the purchasing public may desire, any thing in fact which might be included in a list which stretched from second hand underwear to cheap Jewelry. The old clothes man occupies the commanding position almost directly opposite the. great Liverpool street passenger station, and some of his prices would do Justice to some of the smart "West "End shops, but prices date when the bill found its way to the calendar. ( The committees have been hard at work on it for some time, however, and have made up a bill they are proud of. To keep it f romf being riddled with amendments they are making a strong fight. But the mem bers of the house are of the opinion many of the old provisions as well as soms of the proposed new ones are in need of changes, and they are chew ing on the bill section by section. The fight to hold the bill intact is be ing conducted by Messrs. Epperson, of Levy and TTeaver, of Taylor coun ty, while not all but a good part of and sales are not the same thing in . , championed by Mr. Gillis, of Wal Petticoat Lane.

I sarily slow. Then comes out all the wit and humor The very first attack made on ' -of the throng, with the" auctioneer bill was bv Mr. onus w tri tn usually leading in sarcastic sallies. 'Art China," fearfully and wonder fully made; men and women's neck wear in all colors of the rainbow; fried fish fresh from the skillet; pic tures, framed and unf rained and prized because of their high color; ice cream - and shaving powder,' with a liberal assortment of hair brushes ana suspenders; money belts; Mons rib bons and the insignia- of every regi ment in tho British army. These and a thousand and one other things line the "street on each side, their leather lunged sellers pausing only in their appeals for trade to make the neee sary change. ' One section of the Lane Is given over to the man who is there to heal the sick and afflicted. He usually specializes in some particular disease. His appeals supported by an open bottle of his particular medicine, and for a penny" one may sample the rem edy and know for himself whether he wants' a bottle. And it is surpris ing how many bottles are sold from the sample, on which the thrifty "doc tor" makes much more profit than he does on the larger amount. . Not far from the Lane proper is the livestock" market as they call it. in Club Row. Here one can Duy some of the best dogs that have mys teriously disappeared from the fash ionable sections of the city during the previous Week. Sunday morning Is the great aay In Petticoat Lane, and its environs, for while all commodity stores in Lon don are closed on that day, the Lane out of section 3 these words: nd no act error or! omission on tfat .art of any officer shall operate to vitiate such lien," meaning tax lien. T in tention of Mr. Gillis was that a provision would make officers .reless in these matters, and he maue a hard fight to strike it out, but failed. The next amendment was offered by Jlr. Barber of .Baker county, to save to the c-nnty of Bradford the taxes now being paid to that county on the state prison farm lands. The amendment was finally incorporated in the bill, but not until there had been a right pretty little scrap over it. During the controversy, Mr. Crews referred to the gentleman from Bay, Mr. Stokes, as "always snapping at everything." This was the occasion of Mr. Stokes rising to a point of personal privilege at the beginning of the afternoon session, arid paying his respects to Mr. Crews. After the announcement of the vote on the state farm taxing amendment, Mr. Stokes, still smarting under what he thought was an undue reflection upon him, moved to strike out all of section 4. This is the section exempt ing from taxation all real and personal property of the state, the churehes and all charitable institutions. After his speech in support of the amendment, Mr. Bryan of Osceola quietly moved to table the amendment without an other word being said- The motion carried. In the exemption of church property frmo taxation Mr. Crews got the house to accept an amendment cutting down the exempted. land to one acre for each is allowed to operate J freely without . church Interference from the police. It serves In the provjsIon exempting the prop its purpose In that it affords a cheap, I erty of Wijows Mr Moore offered convenient market for the teeming j j0 tne verbiage of the constitution. The thousands of the East End, and gives provision had not been changed any them a promenade, a little crowaeu to be sure, but all the more popular in consequence. further than to let in all widows de pendent upon their own exertions, but the house thought it best to stick to the constitutional provision, "Who have a family dependent upon them for sup port." . Mr. McRae tried to exempt all those "Washington, D. C May 24. The trans-Atlantic flight in which the pow er of our big aeroplanes has been strikingly-demonstrated has called atten tion to America's high standing in the manufacture of aeroplanes which, the TJ S. training service claims, is due to the introduction of industrial training in aerpolane.' factries during the war. "Without the remarkable Impetus which training gave that industry in the days of war crisis it is said that we could never have gained, the eminence we now, enjoy in the field of aircraft pro duction. This nation and the allies, as is now well .known, were forced to greatly enlarge their Aircraft program over estimates made earlier in the war. Bit in the face of this great crisis America America unprepared, having no force of workers who had had experience in making 'planes. Plans and specifi cations prepared by the engineers called in to design machines, were of no avail until several thousand work ers could be secured to. man the fac tories. In this critical time industrial training was . resorted to and where courses of the sort that the training service advocates for all manufactur ing industries, w-ere Installedthe air craft plants made remarkable records, though the signing of the armistice prevented a full display of our newly acquired power in the air. The secret of America's success in BO quickly getting aircraft manufac ture on a permanent footing was the careful analysis of each of some' hun dreds of processes and operations in cident to making an aeroplane, in order that training might be given employees in thesa operations. The United States training service has issued a pamphlet describing the industrial training as carried on in one of the largest air craft plants. The plan set forth has served as a model for several train ing departments in other lines of man ufacture, notably In one of the larg est auotmobile factories in this country.

This section referred to banks and trust companies having in their possession monies or securi ties intended for investment to re turn the same for taxation. In the section taxing boats, Mr. Gillis attacked a feature which might be construed that, these should listed for taxation at the place where they belong and at the place where they are regis tered or enrolled. Mr. Busto, of Monroe county tried, but failed, to get the house to exempt the small fishermen from the tax. Mr. Chavos and Mr. Greene both had amendments to enforce the pay ment of poll taxes. They both failed with little discussion. Mr. Scrugg3 failed in an effort to strike from the bill that provision re quiring ttaS tax collector to make two trips over the county for the purpose of collecting taxes, and that the ln- tinerv shall be published in some newspaper in the county. Only one laugh was pulled on the bill during the whole of the time it was under consideration. In that part cf the bill naming animals which shall be taxed, Mr. Bryan offered' and the houve accepted an amendment including dogs, Mr. Futch, of Lake county, immedl ately added: "And Catts". The mo tion was promptly tabled. Not until it had served its purpose though In the taxing of household goods and personal ornaments, Mr. Merchant add ed. jewelry, On the initiative of Mr. Gillis, the house struck out the following pro visions of the 8th section of the bill 'And for purposes of taxation all non bearing fruit trees shall not be con sidered as adding any value to said lands.
