Detroit. Kansaa t City. Atlanta FRIDAY MORNING. MAT 30, 191J SMITHWICK'S FIRST VOTE. Writing from Washington, a former Pensacol Ian says : "Frem all I can hear up here, the suf frage resolution will come up soon in the senate, and its passage is assured by a margin of near ly a half dozen votes. It is quite likely that it will be through the senate and on the road to ratification by the states in less than two weeks.' The Journal was the first paper in the state of Florida to openly advocate equal suffrage, and its former editor, the late Frank L. Mayes, in his last public utterance, advocated the ballot for women. - ' West Florida should take pride in the fact fchat the first vote cast by J. H. Smithwick, con gressman from this district, was cast for the Jimendment to the national constituion which yill enfranchise the women of this country. While Mr. Smithwick had pledged himself neither for nor against the suffrage resolution in his campaign, many of his constituents here believed that he would cast his vote in favor of the Fallot for women, and were not disappointed. Congresman William D. Upshaw is also among the southern congressmen voting for the suffrage amendment. Commenting on his vote, the Georgian says: "In voting for the woman suffrage amend ment, he was true to his campaign professions, in line with the spirit and manifest purpose of the great constituency he stands for, and utterlj sensible and mindful of the trend of the times. He will share with Senator William J. Harris the honor of being the first Georgia representatives in the congress of the United States to vote for equal and wholly deserved rights of citizenship for women. "The Georgian has already taken occasion to commend Senator Harris for his fine and states manlike attitude i-this matter, and we just as cordially and sincerely congratulate the new con gressman also. "If Mr. TJpshaws first vote upon a measure of general import may be taken as indicative of his career in congress, then he is certain to make a most useful and dependable representative, and he is additionally certain to remain a long time at his present post. . . A representative who is true to his promises, courageous enough to stand up and fight for them on the firing linef and sensible enough to. realize what is going on about him is likely to prove a pretty acceptable sort of representative. HOME OWNING CHARACTER BUILDING. Throughout the entire country there is a wide spread movement to own your own home. Men of all classes are being urged to buy or build their own homes, and especially is emphasis be ing laid upon the importance of building your own home and building it immediately. The movement is a wise one. Too much emphasis cannot be laid upon the desirability from every point of view of people owning their own homes. Home owning means character building, thrift, patriotism. It is not possible for the renter on farm or in city to have the same feeling for rented proper ty as he would for his own home. The outright ownership of a home, even though years maybe required to pay for it, is a stijasfi&at in character building. It is as good for the wife and children as it is for the head of the house. It is well, therefore, that there should be an intense educational campaign throughout the en tire country in the interest of home ownership. But a very large proportion of people of ordinary means cannot build their own homes. . Some of :hem lack the initiative, some lack, the ability to finance, and some hesitate to assume the respons bility of debt, not knowing just what the dwell ing may cost before it is finished. It is essential ly important, therefore, that in every communi ty, large or small, business men should take the leadership in the organization of plans for build ing dwellings and selling them under the build ing association, or some r5milar plan, on long time and easy terms. The Manufacturer's Record says: "There is probably no other city in America in which this work has been more fully, developed than Baltimore. During the first ten years after the great fire of 1904, more than 30,000 dwell ings were built in Baltimore, a very large Ero portion of them being two-story houses, thor oughly modern in every respect, and yet sold at a cost which enabled men of moderate incomes to buy these dwellings through building associa tions. Building operations of this kind have been carried out in Baltimore pn a very large scale for many years. Builders purchase a piece of ground and through the co-operation of banks, if finan cial help is needed, they erect by the wholesale, dozens, and sometimes hundreds of dwellings, most of which are sold before they are complet ed. One builder has now started on a campaign to erect 2400 houses at a total cost of about $9, 000,000. The builders even arrange the details of .financing them through the building associa tions, and thus save the buyers from all annoy ing, petty details. Every effort is made to sim plify the purchase of homes in order that the prospective buyers may have just as little diffi culty as possible. "Of the 30,000 dwellings erected in the ten years already mentioned probably 95 per cent were built for sale by land companies or builders who make a business of doing this work. It is a very rare thing in Baltimore for an individual to plan and build his own home unless it is a house of the more pretentious kind." LEGISLATORS AND LEGISLATION - BY JOHN C.

That charge cannot be laid to all those who failed to vote, be cause some of them were out of the city, not through a desire to dodge this question, but quite a number were in the capitol building; and con veniently absent when the roll was called. Capt. Edward Anderson, who is, per haps one of the best known men in Florida, through his connection with the draft srvice in Florida, of which he was the, head, left last night for Washington to take up the new duties of jvhieh he has been assigned in the war department. , Mrs. Anderson and the children will remain here until after the schools close, after which they will join-' the captain at the na. tional capital. A cry which never fails to stir the souls of any congregation of people is that for men. 'real men. men with a capacity for thinking and a will to use their faculties. But this house has just about put that cry on the blink, according to the view of those who think it necessary for every leg islature that convenes to pass laws of every subject the mem ters can think of during the sixty days. Tha number of thinking men in the house is so great, their views ao widely varying and their determination so unr changeable, that it has been hard for them to pass any laws. One thing makes this condition of affairs look like a blessing in disguise to some folks.

LARGEST DRY CITY. ; "Largest dry city in the world" that's De troit. , tA distinction soon to be lost if the wartime prohibition takes effect. How does prohibition affect a city of 900,000? What lessons has Detroit for New York, Chicago and other great cities soon to banish booze? The city-has prospered financially and indus trially. ' A striking evidence of this is old "Whiskey Row" Lafayette boulevard between Griswold and Shelby streets, a block from city hall. There were ten saloons in 100 yards. Many of the buildings were little better than shacks. . When John Barleycorn lit out, some of the buildings remained vacant for a few months. Othe"were remodeled quickly and rented. Now all are filled. - Like conditions prevail elsewhere. , Many ex-saloonists are starting cigar stands and soda fountains. These are springing up like magic all over town. , Two nationally known liquor men now operate confectionary stores on opposite corners. Theatres and movies increase and prosper. Three high grade playhouses can't accommodate a city that formerly filled but two. Half a dozen vaudeville houses play to capacity. Amusement men are coining money. . The town thinks it is better morally. Crimes and misdemeanors have decreased. So have ac cidents. How much of this is due to general war prosperity, how much to prohibition, authorities disagree. . Courts have less to do. Begging and vagrancy have disappeared. Bank deposits and postal savings have increased. Mr. Marshall, of Broward county, has succeeded in getting the house to adopt his plan to visit the everg'ades on a trip of inspection immediately after the adjournment of the legis lature, with very little ob lection It provides for the expenditure of $6,000 by the trustees of the; internal im provement fund for this purpose, with which they may arrange for a speelaj train of Pullman cars sufficient to ac commodate the members and officers of the legislature and the trustees of the internal improvement fund and their officers and assistants. It also provides for the appointment of a com mittee of five by the speaker of the house and the president of the senate, which committee shall make a report of the findings of the Inspection trip to the next sitting of the legislature.

Mr. Scruggs then moved to waive the ruies and put the bill on its third reading and final passage. The speaker put the motion both ways and declared it adopted, disregarding en tirely a ' large number of calls for a division On the vote. --. The amended bill was then read a third time and passed. The bill as it came from the senate was one of four bills recommended by the special committee appointed at the special session of the legisla ture last winter.
