Presiden-; Wilson will send a mes
sage to th i gathering at the Jackson
Day banquet from his sick room stat
ing that under no circumstances will
he accept a nomination for a third
term, the leading democrats here ex
pect. That announcement will set off
the booms for the various candidates
who will hi' present and a scramble
will commence for the nomination.
With President "Wilson out of the
way for tl e nomination and some
idea obtainable as to who will be the
democratic standard-bearer the re
publicans rill he able to shape their
campaign. Up to now they have been
in the air s nd unable to prepare plans
as to a cardidate or policy.
President "Wilson will in his mes
sage to the- party gathering point the
way for the party to go with regard
to the peai.e treaty, industrial and
economic conditions and issues in
general, it is believed. He will then,
for the first time since he waselected,
cease to bo the head and shoulders of
the democratic party. No man has
perhaps .ever so entirely dominated
his party ai President Wilson.
It wijl then be interesting to note
the succest William Jennings Bryan
gains in his effort to become the lead
er of the party again as successor to
Woodrow Wilson, and whether he suc
ceeds in steering the party's course in
a manner that will bring about his
own nomination for the fourth time.
Mr. Bryan's speech at the banquet
will receive unusual attention.
Mr. McAdoo's declination of all in
vitations to attend the Jackson Day
Bpirti to make Pensacola one of the
banquet at first puzzled politicians
who believed he had committed a
grave tactical error in not seizing on
the occasion to get his boom well un
der way. A further and deep study
of the incident, however, shows that
McAdoo is :aking what may turn out
to be a very shrewd course. By stay
ing away hr will escape the necessity
of committing himself to an definite
platform or statement of policies at
this time, with the convention 6
monhs away and the country in an ex
tremely unsettled condition.
The president has been rather gen
erally criticised for his failure before
now to statu his position regarding a
third term. His friends have taken
the position that it would have ap
peared presumptious for him to decline
something that was not offered him.
The republicans for the most part
have refrained from attacking his
failure to speak out on the third term
hoping he would accept another nom
ination. The president's announcement that
he will not again be a candidate will
be sad new:j to the republicans who
have hoped he "would run again and
ive them the opposition to a third
term as a telling weapon. The presi
dent is expected to announce his in
tention to retire to private life and
regain his health, shattering in the
public service.
The Jackson Day dinner is expected
to dispel the gloom that has hung
over the democratic party since the
set-back received in the elections of
191S when bDth the senate and house
were lost.
General Leonard Wood for the re
publicans an I William G. McAdoo for
the democrats, provided of course that
the president is out of the runnig, ap
pear to be in the lead for nomination
by their respective parties. The sur
est sign of this perhaps is that all
the other prospective republican can
didates are Trying to smother the
Wood boom, while the democrats with
presidential ispirations are trying to
kill off the boom for McAdoo.
Fear of ths Wood boom was exhib
ited by those- who attended the meet
ing of the republican national commit
tee here ear y in December. The
Wood boome rs were very busy try
ing to pledge the national committee
men for thei- man and making as
much noise as possible. The "big
bosses'' at the meeting decided the
Wood boom must - be snuffed out at
any cost, and have set about to do it.
Xow that the McAdoo boomers have
commenced to make some headway

actual and hopeful, are trying to
emnt'ncr it. The situation is very sim

now that St. Louis has definitely

to offer. Chicago and San Francisco

cssary. but he protested against "a
scramble for deposits."
"We do not see why a roisc in re
discount ra!"s should bring about such
a scramble," be said. "The federal re
serve bank rate increases are only
temporary, whereas relations of the
bankers with their customers are sup
posed to be permanent.
"No customer sbould.be led to look
upon deposits as an investment, and
the banks should not look upea de
posits other than as a liability"
Competition by bankers with the in
vestment market was not conductive to
sound banking, Governor Harding said, j
"While we have turned our backs on ;
the period of war financing," lie con
tinued, "we cannot expect in the im
mediate future a condition such as was
considered normal under
standards. We will reach normal only
when the obligations of the government
are greatly reduced &n the remainder
absorbed by the investing public.
"Unessential loans should be dis
couraged. Federal banks must be kept
in condition to meet industrial and com
mercial demands and ready to provide
for any emergency. In ordinary times
a raise in rediscount rates is the natural j
corrective, of undue expansion, but we
cannot add to our gold holdings by
raising rates, nor must we do any
thing to discourage "production."

by those who feel that it will always

Gude's Pepto-Mangan is for people

proper blood nourishment. Pepto

creases the number of healthy red

carry the proper nourishment, vigor

the body.
Physicians introduced Gude's Pepto

knew that it contained the very prop

some fast ' and interesting games can
be expected. The first game will be
between the Wilson-Biggs, captained
