COMMISSION TO CONSIDER CASE OF CHERO-COLA The Twilight league commission CHERO COLA IS DUE FOR SKIDS FOR THIS GAME will meet at The Journal office at 8.30 . o clock Saturday nignt to consider tne case of the Chero-Cola baseball team. The manager of the club will be pres ent and will be asked to explain what course he intends to follow. & & S. & & 5, v STATE OPINION. believed to have been the rightful own ers for scoies of years past, was drawn and enacted into law. But in the face of strenuous pro tests from those who understood the situation, the bill was vetoed by the governor. In this connection a paragraph from the governor's message to the legis lature at the beginning of the ses sion will be of interest. It follows: (From Governor Catts' Message to the legislature. April 8. 1919.) "One of the most important is sues now confronting the state of Florida is the question of riparion rights, overflowed lands rights, and other kindred legal claims, based upon these low-lying shore lands of Florida. In order that thin question may be settled defi nitely and fully, once and for all, and the interests and titles of the landholders may be protected for ever, it is absolutely necessary, in the opinion of the governor, that suitable laws be passed dealing with this harrowing and vexed proposition for all times." St. Au gustine Record. BY "K. Y." Manager Arthur Olsen couldn't real'y be blamed for not appearing on the field yesterday to see his Chero Col i team play. His captain. CI. Bond, evidently was looking for a pitching staff as he pitched almost everybody on the team except the mascot, and He wasn't there. The K & N. "round house gang" fell on four pitchers for a total of thirty-two runs and twenty-four hits, including three home runs, two triples and numerous doubles, while as far as Ellis was con cerned, one run would have wort the game, for the Chero-Colas only reg istered one bingle of his delivery. Mack Kewis' men laid the game on ice in the first inning when they scored thirteen runs off Bond, sixteen men facing him in that frame. He gave way to Vickery in the second, who was also unable to stop tho slaughter, giving up si; hits for a total of nine runs. As for errors made in these two innings, they were "too numerous to mention." The Railroaders scored in every in nin? of the game making one in the third, five in the fourth, one in the fifth and thre in the sixth. A. Styles, pitched the third and fourth innings for the Chero-Colas, while Sperduto finished the game. The only hit of the game made by the Chero-Colas was in the first in ning when Vickery singled over sec ond, going to send on an error. He was thrown out trying out to steal third. Among those -who fattened their averages were Wentworth. with five hits out of six times up; Bell, with three out of four: Brown with four out of six; Gould with four out of The Riparian Rights Veto The recent Florida legislature pass ed a measure known as the riparian rights bill. In plain, Vvery-day lan guage, that bill sought to vest the titl-n of all lands lying between high and low water marks in the persons, firms or corporations who have owned, or thought they owned this property for half a century. I-awyers and real es tate people and practically everybody else in Florida and elsewhere believed that the people, firms and municipali ties possessing lands abutting salt water had a clear title to them, and as a result millions of dollars wera spent in improvements, thousands were borrowed and loaned on the lands as security and bond issues mounting into the millions in the aggregate were authorized. Then two cases were decided by the Florida supreme court, one known as the Brickcll case and the other as the Chris Theisen case frbm Pensacola, the former being settled during th; last session of the legislature and the latter some months previous. In these cases the high tribunal held that the two old statutes were conflicting but that the intent of the lawmakers was to vest all riparian titles In the State of Florida. These rulings upset the records of every abstract office in Florida seaport towns, credit was seri ously, injured and hugh bond issues jeopardized. But the legislature was in session and the authorities ad vised that a new statute be drafte-1 and passed. Leading lawyers of Tam pa. Jacksonville, Miami and Pensacola put their heads together and a bill, clearifying the old acts and vesting the title of waterfront lands in the parties whom practically everybody Ratifying Suffrage The Literary Digest has made inquiry of newspaper editors at the fltate capitals as to what their respective states might be expected to do with idea. He engineered a tour of the United States by 20 of Mexico's best known editors at the expense of this gov ernment. They found I'ncle Sam could fight, would fight and was fighting putting the finishing touches to Kais erism. When these editors returned to Mex ico they looked over the American war cable and educational service, got out the war cuts and photos, and unwrap ped the l S. war posters. "Use them,' they ordered. Murray's educational campaign go into full swing, and the literate peo ple of Mexico rapidly fell into line wltii the allies. In addition to war cables, cuts an" matrices to 31 Mexican newspaper and daily translated bulletins to 41' the suffrage amendment, adopted b house and senate, and soon to he pu' to state legislatures. It appears that in thirty-one states there is every pros pect of ratification. Eight are ex pected to refuse to ratify. These av Connecticut, Maryland. Virginia, Koutl Carolina. Georgia. Mississippi, Ala bama and Louisiana. The contest, therefore, will re t' get five favorable states out of t'.v remaining nine which are doubtful: namely, Texas. Florida. Kentuck' North Carolina. West Virginia, Nev Jersey, Massachusetts, lthode Island New Hampshire. If the antis should be able to swin -five of those and if all the other pre dictions come true they could fore the whole difficult business to be don' over again. This is hardly likely Previously the wet forces were almos solid against suffrage, because the" believe, and rightly, that suffrage would lead to prohibition. Now thai the country is going dry anyhow,- th wet armies have been pretty well de mobilized, and their fight lacks polo; even where It etill exists. This is ex pected to make the difference in Ohio for example, which turned down suf frage twice within the last few years. ' The whole matter is one of tiles'" "eventually, why not now?" proposi tions, and there seems little reason i in prolonging the struggle. Ka' It grows easier, as public opinion de velops; but why waste energy trying to sweep back the tides? Dayton Journal. Grand Celebration MAXENT PARK BASEBALL PENSACOLA vs. FLORALA at 3:30 o'clock.
