Detrott, Kansas City. Atlanta TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 8. 1919 THE REAL SPIRIT. Patriotism is no-longer a mere word glibly spoken and easily forgot. , It is the essence of what we term today Americanism, it is the bone and blood of a nation. ' Pensacola and patriotism have become indis- solubly linked together during the years of the war, and loyalty to country has been expressed in varying but unmistakable ways. The army and the navy have been always a part of the life or 1'ensacola, even since those early days of Spanish occupation, and civilian and service life have been closely allied. But perhaps the close co-operation of city and service was never more emphasized than in the great celebration of the Fourth of July, when the army and the navy joined hands with the city in making the Inde pendence celebration memorable as an observ ance to honor the men who gave their lives for their country. For to give one's life for one's country does not mean merely to die on the field of battle. One may just as surely offer up his life in service, in :amp or flying field, where life 13 risked with 3ach passing hour, and sacrifice and service are "one--' One of the things which stand out against the background of the war, as related to Pensacola, is the wonderful response during the world war, from the army and the navy, whenever there was 1 call for patriots. These men had offered their lives for freedom, they awaited government orders. That would seem to be enough. And yet without hesitation . the army and the navy, the marines and the aviation, threw themselves, heart and soul, into every movement which stood for those standards for which they fought, those ideals to which they were consecrated. The war is practically at an end. But the joint celebration of July the Fourth is not a per iod at the end of a chapter of history. Rather is it the heading of a new story a story of co operation, of loyal and friendly support, of that new comradeship that the war has brought about. , The celebration of July Fourth was some thing more than an observance, it was, in it way, a pledge. It not only honored the dead and paid its tribute to the living, but it stood for the future it did more than this it cemented the bond of comradeship between service and civil ian, a comradeship not only marked by social in- rtercourse, but which against the background of war work, spells future co-operation which will mean much for the spirit of true patriotism that will go far towards building a greater Pensacola. BRIGHTER BRITAIN. The Tribune takes time to wonder what will happen when all women get the right to vote. Just what happens wherever women now have the right to vote, which is better living condi tions all the world over. The Tribune man might take a day off and find out what has already happened where wom en have the ballot. It is interesting reading. Take New Zealand, for example, where the wom en have had the vote for years. That's where the Ansacs come from, and down in New Zealand are the happiest, most content ed people in the world. In December, 1914, there were siv banks of issue doing business and the average amount on deposit was about $139,000, 000; on December 31, 1914, every two persons in New Zealand had a savings account. But New Zealand has something better than money in the bank. It has children in the home. Through the Infant Life Protection Act, New Zealand women have saved the babies as the women of no other country have savdd them. In New Zealand 949 babies per thousand LIVE; only fifty-one out of a thousand die. In the United States 876 out of a thousand live and 124 die. In Dunedin, one of New Zealand's largest cities, only thirty-eight babies die, per thousand. It is the healthiest baby city in the world. New Zealand women have stood back of the effort to establish technical schools, giving equal opportunity to both sexes, and the effort to se cure scientific temperance instruction in the schools, as well as measures for the general rais ing of the standards of public instruction. In 1911 the standard of literacy in New Zea- 5 SE 2 STATE OPINION. J "Ah, There. Florida!" Senator Duncan U. Fletcher of Flor ida Is going to have opposition. Two candidates for his seat In the senate have already announced. Governor Catts being one of them. Senator Fletcher has more than "made good'' at Washington, and Is today one of the strongest men the south has in the senate. It would be a great mistake for Florida to retire as able and experienced a senator as he is today. The best man the people of the state might elect could not hope to reach within the next ten years the position of usefulness and influence which Senator Fletcher has already attained. Our sister state has been known to pull off some surprising political stunts in the not very remote past, but surely there ought to be enough in telligent and patriotic people in the state to take care of Senator Fletch er in the present threatened crisis. Changing senators and representatives in congress Is, in the very nature of conditions at the national capital, as Well as at home, an unwise thing to do, and it should be done only when an incumbent proves unworthy or goes far astray.

We believe it is not disparaging the honors due to other great American women to say that with the death of Dr. Anna Howard Shaw there has passed away the greatest oT American women The daughter of immigrant parents strugeling for existence in a Michigan wilderness, she early learned that rug gedness of mind, cleanliness of thought and absolute trusting faith in her Maker were necessary for Winning the struggle against the wild and the un- land was brought to the point where there was man heart, she was no faddist, but no such thing as illiteracy in the length and ZntVrs eraf ter ad breadth of the land.

Her three great aims were in reality one: Temperance, suffrage and social purity. She believed, as we all know now, that the three were practically inseparable. She lived to see national temperance a fixed policy of the na tion, women given the ballot, and such a nation-wide fight against the social evil as probably was never even ex pected by her In the early years of her activity. As a suffrage worker, the term of V man V.0170 Inner harl thf nrivilpcp. of voting her administration as president of the "C - w , -r, .

A wife may divorce her husband on the same grounds on which a husband may divorce a wife. Divorce is also granted to a wife or a husband for wilful desertion for five years, for drunken ness, and in the case of the wife, for failure to support, and for cruelty in the case of either wife or husband. These laws have equalized the stand ards of morality in New Zealand to a remark able degree. The vote of the men in New Zealand is 84 per cent and the vote of the women 83 per cent. As EQUIPMENT OF QUALITY IS NOW USED ON FARMS There was a time In the lean years of farming when many farmers had to buy -yulpment that was poor In quality be cause it was cheap. But today the farm er has money and is buying equipment of proved value the sort he has always wanted because he knew it had the gen uine value that made it cheaper in the long run. The automobile Is today part of the atandarrl equipment of every farm. Cars of the best make dot every country road. The farmer is considered by the auto salesman to be a most dicrimlnating buyer. He la a man unea to doing things himself, and not delegating jobs to others; his information is usually first J hand, and he knows Just what he wants. it Is because of the farmers' prosperity ard their determination to get full value for their money that the United States Tire Company is looking forward for an enormous buaineis this year in the agri cultural sections.

Fensacola has made a wonderful record in niany ways during the past few years, but par- ticularly has its financial development been not able. In spite of the many handicaps which it has suffered, along with other southern cities, it has a good financial rating throughout the country. This- fact was stressed at the recent sale of time warrants in connection with the educational improvements in the county, these warrants selling above par, bringing a premium of $1,700. One of the best evidences of the sta bility of any county or community i sthe readi ness with which its bonds are placed, and the premium that these bonds or time warrants bring. The fact that some of the best houses in the country are bidding on our paper, is indication of the fact that not only are the potentialities of this port and back country recognized, but that "at the present time its securities are sold at par In the markets. ; : And the Balkan question is to be settled on the deferred-payment plan. HIGH DENSITY COMPRESS. Prospects seems good for a high density cot ton compress for Pensacola, but it will require the co-operative effort of the business men to make these prospects materialize. That Pensacola's harbor is its greatest asset goes without saying. But what do assets pro! it a man or a port unless they are utilized? The shippers of Pensacola have expressed themselves as favorable to the erection of a high density cotton compress at Pensacola, and realize its im portance to port development. American ships will not take cotton com pressed in the old way. tories Morgan Wright.

It Is stated that the government has positive Information that Amir is In close touch with the Bolshe vik! In Turkestan and Moscow and that the Russian emissaries have been sent to Afghanistan.

Recent sucoes'sos of the, Bolshevikl In Trans-Caucasia are regarded with ap prehension The Bolshevik aspirations undoubtedly are two-fold.
