THE PENSACOLA JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 28, 1919.
in Linn on Ex-President TafCs Committee to Railroad Commissioners of t North Carolina. The Joint chairman of the national war labor board have told the railroad commissioners of South -Carolina and the city authorities of Charleston that a careful investigation made- by de partments of the federal government shows that the five-cent fare of 1915, is about equivalent to a seven-cent fare today. This stateemnt is important, not be cause It reveals something not before known to the industry." but because it is an official governmental decla ration,, of the decreased purchasing power of the nickel fare, as it has been affected by the war. It substantiates what President Stanley said In his address to the conference on November 1, namely, that a ten-cent fare would be re quired to place the fare of. today on a parity . with the five-cent tare of 1896. It discloses the reason for the present unfortunate Situation of the lectrjc railways. It removes, if not the legal, at least the moral, objection to the abroga tion of fare stipulations in franchises and agreements, since it is apparent that the companies are not receiving a fare which in purchasing power is the equivalent to the fare for which they agreed to furnish service. It is In fact, of itself, a sufficient reason for the fare Increases which the companies are seeking. And it shows the folly of attempt ing to fix. for all time, and under all circumstances, a rate of fare at which street railway service shall be furnished.

VARIED VIEWS EXPRESSED ON STATE DIVIDE SECTIONAL AND POLITICAL PROBLEMS AT ISSUE WERE DISCUSSED AT LENGTH DIVIS IONISTS ARE ENCOURAGED. BY JOHN C. TRICE. Tallahassee, May 26. With the ex ception of taking up time enough to read a short message from the gov ernor, recommending the passage of a couple of private' pensions for two Id soldiers who cannot get on the pension rolls, the house spent the whole of the single session Saturday on the resolution introduced by Mr. Mathis, . of Holmes, county to divide the state. To follow the resolution submitting an amendment to the constitution to be voted on at the next general elec tion, if it passes -the legislature, will be introduced by Mr. Mathis a bill fixing the boundary of the new state of South Florida. The proposed line will follow the northern boundary line of Alachua county to the northern boundary line of Putnam, thence alon sajd line to the St. John's river and down said river to the intersection of the northern boundary line of St. John's county, and along said line to the Atlantic. This bill has not yet been intro duced, but the boundary line was read by Mr. Mathis from his seat in the house, so the members would' be put LIBERTY BONDS If you can't keep up your de ferred payments, see me. Lee Daniel. on notice as to the full purport of his resolution. The introduction of the dividing res olution was looked- upon by many, of the members of the house as a sort of Joke at first." But they soon found that it was no joke so far as. Mr. Mathis is concerned. Nor is it a Joke with a large number of the members of the" house. It will require three- fifths of all the members elected to the huose, or 47 votes in favor of the resolution to pass it. There is no waj of course to definitely tell in advance what the exact vote will be, but from the discussion this morning and from the forecasts of the house by men well versed in this kind of thing, it is be lieved that a large majority are in favor of passing the measure. The starting of the resolution was carefully looked after. There was no waiving of the rules and reading the resolution by title only. The rules had to be waived of course to . get it to third reading on the same day it was introduced, but in each- instance the provisions of the constitution Were carefully complied with, before read isg the resolution the , third time. Mr. Mathis, of Holmes county, the introducer of the resolution, opened the discussion for its passage on third reading. He recalled to the house that he had promised some days age to Introduce this resolution the next morning. That he had not done so then for reasons s arising after the promise was made. That it was now introduced through not reelings of re sentment against any one or against any section. He believed - that the time had arrived in the history of the state when such a division as that proposed in his resolution and bill would be the very best thing that could happen for both ends of the State. The proposed division was not only geographically the correct one to make, but it was such as the widely senarated interests of the people would suggest. Mr. Folks, of Marion county, ob jected to any division scheme, but he most objected to the West Florida people dividing the state so as to give to them all the cream. Mr. Brooks, of Monroe county, quickly resented this Insinuation that the western part of the state was su perior to the section he lives in. We insist that we have the cream of the state and will retain it in this pro posed division, he said. South Florida was willing to the - proposed - division, he declared, and be believed the mem bers of that section would vote with him to pass the resolution and the MIL ,-'- ; - Mr. Perry, of Lee county, said it j was ridiculous to talk about Florida having the cream of the state ' left after the southern part had been , cut off. It was his opinion that South Florida would have all the cream, and i there would only - be left to - Florida that which underlies the creaml Dis carding a spirit of levity ' and contin uing in real earnest, he declared he favored the proposition for the good j he beljieved it would do both Sections j of the state. .-' . , Mr. , Scruggs, of Leon county, op posed the resolution. He Bald that he realized that in the progress of state3. as in the rearing of families, there often comes 'a time when there must be a parting of the ways in the inter est of forward strides of good gov ernment. When the time comes, he declared, when South Florida de mands to be separated from the moth er state, we will give her our bless ings. But thank God that time has not yet arived. He intimated this res olution was introduced at this time for the purpose of filibustering against time, but failed to state just why. Mr. Greene, of Bradford county, said that at first he thought the introduc- DROPSY SPECJ ALTS Usually gives quick re lief, have entirely relieve many seemingly hopelesi cases.

Chataworttv tion of the resolution was a joke. But ie had become convinced that with a whole lot of people the matter was not a . joke. He could see nothing to be gained by it, but the fostering of a sectional feeing that ought to be eliminated from the ' legislative body as soon as possible. Mr. Busto, of Monroe county, fol lowed with the statement that he was of the opinion that the proposition was a very meritorious one. Not from any sectional animosities, but from a purely business standpoint. Mr. Phillips, of Columbia county, declared the proposition was a fair one. It is one that the people hav got to face . at no distant day, he said and they might Just as well do it now. Conditions warrant it and the diversity of interests demand it. and ; that demand is yearly growing stronger. ' Mr., Wicker, of Sumter county, de clared he had fought this very propo to do the same thing now. He said he first tholight it was a joke, and he had not changed his opinion. It had been said that' a republican congress would not consent to this division if It was out 'to them. But -it was his opinion they might. And it was with- lon to the fact that there is nothin in the bounds of the possibilities that such consent would give to congress ed more up there, than the political faith of people going before them. South Florida he said, was entitled to stand alone, and the people of that section unite among themselves for unhindered progress. Mr. Dawson, of Hernando, declared this was not a sentimental proposi tion. The plain and practical inter ests of the two great sections of the state are involved. He paid a beau tiful tribute to the sincerity of the introducer of the resolution, and to the greatness of the section he comes from, m case of division the same great people would continue to direct the progress of their Respective sec tions, the on eunhindered by the an tagonistic Interests of the other. ' In stead of one great state, we woulJ have two, progressing more rapidly because of a greater unity of inter ests. ' Mr. Harris, of Pinellas county, said he stood before the house as the orig inal divider. He had tried it in coun ty division, and found it worked mighty well. As a business proposi tion he thought it a mighty good thing. South Florida can take car of herself. She will not ask any thing except to be let alone. - Are you afraid to submit such a proposi tion to the people, he concluded. Mr. Gillis, of Walton county, said fne was mighty sorry tnat when the , citrus canker question , was 'up all these members did not have a chance to get these speeches off their . sys tems. Of course, references o this he -said, had only been made in veiled statements, but the fact was so plain that he who rujia may read, though he be a legislator.

The need of the hour, he said, was statesmen t at Tallahassee, who could rise above sec tionalism and legislate for the whole state. ' Mr. "Wade, of Clay county, said he felt very kindly toward South Florida but conditions make the proposed changre necessary, and the, time is ripe for the change. Mr. Futch, of Lake county, de clared that ; the people of his section would long remember the words of Mr. Scruggs, of leon, and cherish them. He knew, he said, that it was not pleasant to come to the parting: of the ways, but he believed the time was ripe for it In this case. If not it will be ripe by the time the ma chinery can be put in motion. He was not afraid of iSouth Florida going republican. Mr. Epperson, of Levy county, said he lived between the two extremes of the state, and he thought he had the cream of both. Florida's great ness in the sisterhood of states he said came of her great diversity of wealth producing interests, and division at this time would lose her prestige. One section of the state needs the other, according to his view. ' ' Mr. Williams, of Polk, thought it was unfair to inject suggestions of animosity- into this debate. Diversity Of .'and antagonistic business interests make it fair to both ends of the state to divide. There is " and ought not to be any sectional fight mixed in it.

Doubling their reemployment forces throughout this country, leaders of the National Catholic War Council today began an intensive drive for jobs for soldiers, sailors and marines, that is to be con tinued In. full-force until an opening has been found for every fighter from France. As director general for the United States, P. J. Hanley, an em ployment expert from Portland, Ore., has just been appointed to command the two hundred field agents who will, within a week, be covering the country to put into most effective action every agency in every one of the eleven thousand Catholic parishes in the United States. Radiating from sixty divisional headquarters, located in every larg city on the continent, the redoubled efforts" of the National Catholic War Council are already yielding results ehowina? 600 service men placed each day, according to reports recently turned in by the 20,000 men and wom en who are enlisted In this re -employment service. From headquarters in this city, scores of experjt agents are now being hurried to every industrial center in the nation to speed this rec ord job hunt until it opens a thousand places a day to idle men in uniform. State directors, yto push every effort to land work for discharged soldiers and sailors throughout their territory, are being established in 'headquarters all over the country. William J. Carey, whose employment accomplish ments for returned soldiers at Roches ter have been marked, has been made the director for New York state, and Peter J. Rigney, an expert from the U.

Comparing prices in twenty of the leading cities of the United State3, some very interesting facts were re vealed, says the State Marketing Bu reau. All things considered prices on twenty articles T5f food were lowest in Minneapolis and highest in Provi dence. Bacon was lowest in Buffalo average prices In these two cities of 23 per cent, as 77 cents would buy as much food in Minneapolis as $1 would buy In Providence. Sirloin steak was selling retail at 28 cents in Min neapolis and at 65 cents in Provi dence. Bason was lowest in Buffalo at 54 cents and highest in Los Ange les at 67 cents. Roast beef reached its lowest in San Francisco at 2$ cents and was highest In Providence at- 42 cents. Fresh eggs were selling at 69 cents In Minneapolis, and at 97 cents in Boston. Cheese was worth 37 cents In Providence and 46 cent in Birming ham. While coffee was lowest at 29 cents in New Orleans and Minneapo lis, it was ' highest in Boston at 38 cents. Milk was 13 cents per quart in Denver, Milwaukee and Minneapo lis and 20 cents per quart In Atlanta. Butter was 67 cents in Providence and 77 cents in Cleveland. Ham was low est in "New Orleans at 51 cents and highest in Los Angeles at 63 cents. Tea was worth 54 cents in New York and 87 cents in Atlanta. These facts show that pro! and consumers are interested question of markets. Why shou cost, the consumer 64 cents in York and 87 cents in Atlanta, . ierence oc a cents per pound, i erential of 61 per cent, when it not cost a cent a pound to ship i New York to Atlanta. Is there s timate reason why a housewif pay 62 cents for ham in Los Ar while another could buy it for 51 in New Orleans, a difference cents a pound, when the difftg in ireignt rrom meat producing icia a icoa uian . na.il M. cent & ;. un tne otner nana, why was selling in Buffalo at 54 cents, a New Orleans e.t 64 and at Los Ar at 67 cents. If there is a reasr creap ham in New Orleans why f bacon be so high? There certainly can be no r why milk should be worth 28 per gallon more in Atlanta th Milwaukee, and why should the sumer pay 10 cents per pound for butter in Cleveland th'an in neapolis for 28 cents and on the day sell for 65 cents in Trovi 37 cents more, or a difference c per cent. Is this fair to the sumer? Can anyone explain why roas' was selling for 23 cents in San Cisco and 42 cents or 19 cent pound more in Providence, or fresh eggs were costing the con 69 cents in Minneapolis and 9" in Boston, a difference of 28 per dozen when poultry is grcr every state in the union.
