ers; or shall we rather exult in the victory that
government and those leaders made possible?
President Wilson is on his way home.
While congress spends its time in bickering
and investigations, throughout this country
Germany is plying her nefarious trade of treach
ery that is inciting to murder, through those
agencies of darkness, that seek to plunge this
country into Bolshevism.
Let us forget the mistakes and remember the
victories; let us forget that we are politicians
and partisans and remember only that we are

The return of President Wilson to the United
States will do one of two things it will either
strengthen the position that the president holds
in this country, as leader of an enlightened and
free people, or it will strengthen Germany's hold
on this country. One or the other is inevitable
At this time, when the forces of right are try
ing to build up civilization on the ruins that the
Huns have wrought, America, which has suffer
ed least; America, which has made fewer and
less costly mistakes than have been made by
any other nation; America, which entered upon
the war for the liberties of the world, with the
traditions rendered sacred through a baptism of
blood of the pioneers of freedom ; America, who
sent her sons overseas by the million to fight
for the principles which are undying and of which
ehe has ever been the torch-bearer now that
freedom rests on the banners of this country,
seeks to tear down that which she has built up,
through so many hazardous years.
Is it true that there is something vicious in the
human mind that seeks to destroy ; is it true that
no leader is immune, but that every leader who
succeeds bares his breast to the sting of
In business, it is results that speak. In politics
it is partisanship which whispers whispers its
inunedoes, scatters its vile seed of poison.
On every coin that comes from the American
mint there is the motto: "United We Stand;
Divided We Fall." For that sentiment men have
died ; to uphold the principle which those words
convey, men have risked all. And in risking,
they have won.
America has never lost a war. Of all the na
tions of all the world, America and America
alone, stands supreme as victor in the cause of
right and justice.
America has won her victories because she has
been a united people. And without unity this
country may yet suffer defeat at the hands of
those within her gates, those of her own house
hold, and the guests that have been made wel
come under her rooftree.
When the president of the United States re
turns to this country, he will either receive the
support of the people whom he has led so ably
'during the past two administrations, or Germany
will reap its reward in the propaganda which it
has so cunningly distributed through its agents
in this country, in Mexico, in Russia.
What Russia is suffering today, Germany
seeks to see come to pass in these United States.
"He who is not for me is against me."
The words of Christ are true today, as they
were true two thousand years ago, when he re
minded his disciples, in these words, that only
loyal support profited in the cause of righteous
ness. President Wilson is not a superman. But he is
the greatest figure of the age. And he repre
sents the greatest people on the face of the earth.
It is through these people that he has risen to
minence in the councils of the nations. And
through him this nation has played well its part.
Do we now seek to destroy what we have lifted
The mistakes that were made during the war
were costly mistakes, but for every dollar that
was ill-expended there were thousands put to the
right uses which made victory possible; for every
life that was lost hundreds of lives were saved
No victorious campaign was ever carried on with
so little loss of life as those in which America
came off victorious.
If we lo3t heavily in the battles in which we
were engaged, we saved the world to freedom.
Shall we now, we the people of the United States,
spend our precious hours holding a post mortem
over the mistakes of our government and it3 lead
It was appropriate that the traitorous act of
the Germans in sinking the interned ships should
be almost simultaneous with the announcement
that the German government would sign the
peace treaty, for the act of perfidy on the part
of the German sailors, moved doubtless by direc
tion from the German government, is a notice
which the world should heed that neither the
German government nor the German people have
any sense of honor or honesty, says the Manufac
turers' Record.
In signing the peace treaty, which they now
promise to do, the Germans have no more idea
of keeping it than the German sailors had of pro
tecting the ships, which in honor bound they
should have safeguarded. They scuttled the
hips just as Germany will scuttle the peace
treaty at the first opportunity. No one should
for a moment be misled into the thought that in
signing the peace treaty the Germans have the
slightest idea of fulfilling its obligations. To
them this peace treaty will be but a "scrap of
paper," to be thrown aside whenever the oppor
tunity offers.
We may safely count that their plan will be
to continue to sow the seeds of discord between
the allies and between the allies and America, and
that they will go on steadily in their Bolshevistic
campaign, hoping to destroy America and the
allied countries, gaining possession, as they fully
expect to do, of the vast resources in man power
and raw materials in Russia, and then, when they
are ready, throw to the winds all treaty obliga
tions and once morenter upon a world-conquer
ing campaign.
It is exceedingly fortunate for civilization that
the German ships were sunk, for in this very act
the German people and the German nation have
again given proof of their inherent vileness of
character and their lack of all sense of honor and
morality. Through this act the world may per
chance be awakened from the slumber into which
it was fast falling as to the real character of the
German people and the determination of that na
tion not to abide by any treaty obligations, but
at the first moment possible to throw off the
mask and once more enter upon a campaign for
world murder and world looting. Let us beware
of the danger of trusting to Germany's word of
honor or its official seal to any contract, for they
are alike as worthless as would be a flake of snow
in the fires of the lower world.
Political Moss
According: to a Tallahassee dispatch
Catts, who Is now misrepresenting: the
state as governor, has announced that
he would like to act In a similar capa
city for the state of Florida in the
United States senate. It has been ru
mored for some time that this politi
cal Moses would be a candidate for
the senate, but we never took the
matter seriously and do not yet. for
that matter. While it la true that
Catts fooled a sufficient number of
the people to elect him governor, it
Is not at all likely that he can turn
the trick again, for he has broken
faith with most of his influential sup
porters and his total disregard tor
efficiency In appointing: men to office,
his removal of competent officials in
order to give political henchmen Job
at the cost of many thousands of dol
lars to the state, his discourtesy to
President Wilson and other govern
mental officials and other act that
have been detrimental to the inter
ests of the state and have humiliated
the people of Florida, have lost him
most of the support that he once had
among the voters. On the other hand.
Senator Fletcher, a gentleman and a
statesman, has given such universal
satisfaction and has such a hold on all
classes of the people that they will
have no difficulty in arriving: at a
decision when the time to select his
successor arrives. Gadsden County
Florida As a Summer Resort
In the years to come, which are not
far distant, Florida is going to be
known as a summer as well as a
winter resort.' Of course it. wi?l be
the 'coast cities, where surf bathing,
which is the chief attraction, can be
had, that will get the crowds.
The people of Florida themselves
are ignorant of the charms their state
holds for them in this particular fea
ture. Many a dollar in high railroad
fares to the northern resorts, where
the weather is hotter thanthat ex
perienced in our coast towns, could
be saved if Florid ians were acquainted
with the real assets of their state.
Perhaps the greatest of these re
sorts in time to come will be the
Triple Cities of Daytona, Daytona
Beach and Seabreeze. The three cities
have combined to put their section on
the map as a summer resort, and J
that they are succeeding can be read
ily seen by a visit to the beach at
any time. In fact, so successful does
the season promise to be, there is
talk of keeping the Hotel Clarendon
open all next summer.
No words from us can acquaint the
public of this section as to the pleas
ures to be found at this popular re
sort, though the Information that
hotels, boarding and rooming houses,
as well as those who rent cottages are
doing all that is possible to make
one's stay a pleasure, will Indeed be
received with interest.
There is no reason why every one in
Central Florida cannot enjoy a few
weeks or months at the seashore,
where the best of accommodations at
reasonable rates, fishing, bathing and
boating can be found within a day's
ride of one's home. Orlando Reporter-Star.

Pensacola is to be congratulated on the fact
that the ninth annual encampment of United
Spanish War Veterans will be held in Pensacola
July 5. This is the first meeting of the organiza
tion ever held in Pensacola, and they will arrive
at a most auspicious time, and will be special
guests for the New Orleans-Pensacola regatta
races and the great Fourth of July celebration
which will take pake at Fort Barrancas.
The Spanish War Veterans is the only organi
zation in the world composed entirely of volun
teers and the organization in Pensacola is a par
ticularly strong one. The fact that it is to visit
Pensacola at this time is most fortunate, inas
much as the veterans will not only enjoy the hos
pitality of the city at a most appropriate time,
but their presence here will add much to the in
terest of the occasion.
