There is no more devoted and
typical Protestant in the world than
AVilliam Jennings Bryan; and there
Is no more devoted and typical
American in the world in bis fidelity
to the institutions of this country and
the spirit of American liberty than
William Jennings Bryan. Conse
quently what he says concerning the
work of the shameless demagogues
and agitators now seeking throusn
appeals to prejudices of ignorance
to inject a religious issue into our
politics and by gross misrepresenta
tions, falsehoods and slanders fill the
land with the cruelty of bigotry and
brutal intolerance, will command
the wide attention of the American
people. His language is Judicial in
it8 calmness, simplicity and freedom
from prejudice, and comingl from one
of the leading Protestants of Ameri
. ca, it is a scathing rebuke to those
misguided speople now engaged in
the indecent and unAmerican work
of ipersecuting Americans because of
their reH;iious faith, and seekinir to
inaike their own religious bigotry aiid
narrowness an issue in American
politics. In a recent number of the
Commoner. Mr. Bryan over his own
aignature has this to say:
"The Knights of Columbus acted
wisely in giving a formal answer to
the misrepresentations which have
been circulated in regard to the atti
tude of American Catholics on two
important subjects, namely, on poli
tical questions and the public
schools. The knights, at their reecnt
annual meeting at Seattle, say:
'We should lose no proper occas
ion to declare tho position of Cath
olics and the teachings of the church
on this matter, namely, that while
Catholics acknowledge the Pope io
be Bupreme in spiritual matters, they
do not hold that he has any author
ity In civil matters.' If any spirit
ual authority were to direct us to
any act contrary to the rights of free
citizens, or the welfare of society,
we would be bound to disobey'
Other points touched upon in the
re,port to the meeting, as (Published,
are Aa fnllnwR
"The report declares that Catho
lics uphold and support the public
school system, but feel that religious
instruction is necessary, and, there
fore, ibear an extra burden for pri
vate schools. An opinion was ex
pressed that in time all general
forms of religion will be taught in
free schools.
'The report condemns the action
of politicians In raising religious is
sues in campaigns, as well as the ac
tivities of quasi-political societies m
discriminating against persons of
any faith.'
To this Mr. Bryan adds:
"Those who have come into inti
mate acquaintance with representa
tive Catholics did not need to be in
formed that they do not concede to
the church authorities the right to
direct their course in political mat-t
ters, but many Protestants, lacking
this knowledge, which comes with
(personal acquaintance, have been
misled, and the statement above
quoted is both wise and timely.
"So, in the matter of nublic
schools. A narpnt mv amiri Ma pViilri I

ants as well as Catholics do with

school system. The American public

he must have been shocked to think
that with the woods full of "niggers'
everywnere around him, tne moo
should have picked on him to keep
itself in practice.
During Claude L'Engle's brief
career in congress he introduced a
bill appropriating a million dollars
for aeroplanes in the army and navy.
The Florida congressman's bill was
hooted at, and he was severely crit
icised . That was less than two years
ago. yet in that short period we have
seen the sentiment in this report so
changed that a million dollar ap
propriation for the same purpose
would verly likely receive favorable
consideration. The next session of
congress will probably withness not
only theintrodiiction but the passar.e
of some such measure. The war in
Europe is no doubt responsible for
th is raipid change in public opinion.
The practical value of the flying ma
chine In war had never been demon
strated prior to the great war. There
had been many trial flights which
were theoretically successful, just as
army maneuvers are when there is

a medal for raising the most corn to
the acre in this state. Governor
Trammell is in receipt of the madal
with instructions to present It to
young Miller. Following is a letter
from the chief executive to the West
Florida lad asking him if it will be
convenient for him to be at the Pen
sacola fair on November first to be
publicly presented with the medal:
Mr. Malcolm Miller, Baker, Fla.
iMy Dear Sir: I am in receipt of a
letter from Mr. Charles F. Mills, sec
retary of the National Top Notch
Farmers' Club, in which he advises
that you were awarded the medal at
the Panama Pacific Exposition as the
Cham'pion Corn Grower of the State
of Florida. The medal has been re
ceived by me to ibe presented to you,
and if it will be agreeable for you to
arrange to be in Pensacola on No
vember the first at the opening of the
Escambia County Fair, I would at
that time be pleased to present you
with the same.
Your record of a yield of 170.2
bushels of corn on one acre is Indeed
a great credit to you and to your
state. I wish to most heartly con
gratulate you upon your energy and
industry. I am very proud that you
were successful in producing such a
there can be little question that the
public mind was more doubtful than
certain concerning Its value. It was
generally regarded as an expensive
plaything, and the governments
which encouraged the manufacture
uU udo ui it were looxea upon as
extrnvnriant beyond the bounds of
reason .
Now we see a widespread move
ment to educate the public up to the
idea of having an adequate flying
machine establishment and corps as
I a regular department of the army
equipment. Our government has
done little along this line. Only a
year or two ago It was impossible
for an aviator to enter the service as
an aviator. It was necessary for
him to enlist as a private and at the
pay of a ipMvate and take his
chances for advancement along with
the others.
It is interesting to observe, too.
that as the practical value Of the
flying machine has become estab
lished in the minds of the people, the
value of it as an instrument of
amusement has decreased. Exhibi
tion flights no lonrr attract any
great interest or enthusiasm, and ac
cordingly the compensation of avia
tors lias decreased. An aviator
formely found no trouble In getting;
a hundred dollars for a single flight
of a few minutes duration, but now
he is lucky to get half as much.
The flying machine under which
generic term all sorts of aeroplanes,
monoplanes and hydroplanes may be
classed is in truth no lonrrer a cur
iosity. The people have seen and
accepter it, Just as they did the
steam engine and the automobile
and other epoch making inventions.
And now such fictitious persons as
Darius Green and real people as
Claude IEngle are vindicated for
their prophetic foresight. Orlando

sion at all times has been to build
and to boost, and everybody
knows that it has contributed its
full share towards the splendid
growth and progress the city has
made during the past four years.
We repeat, everybody knows this,
though there may be some with
out sufficient generosity to admit
that which in their hearts they
know to be true.
Today it stands a monument
to the untiring and ceaseless in

placed it on a footing so firm

home in this city the Evening

year, and in each of these homes
its arrival is an event as much an
ticipated as the evening meal,
and its failure to make its appear
ance almost as much of a disap
pointment as the absence of the
evening meal would be. It has
grown to be so much a part of the

that buys advertising on any

lowest rate consistent with the
cost of production.
The Evening Telegram is rec
ognized by all the great advertis

is carrying a splendid line of na
tional advertising, for which it
gets a much larger rate than that
charged home merchants. It
took time and proof of merit to
secure this recognition, for na
