God grant that this may not be the beginning of many such messages of sorrow. Col. waterson was awarded the Pulitzer prize of $500 for the best edi torial written during the year. But would the Judges have given that edi torial the prize if it had been pre sented in the name of some obscure or unknown Journalist? o The Ocala Star intimates that tha No-Fense law is not popular in that county.

FIRST DEGREE MURDER CHARGE AGAINST WOMAN It is a sad fact that the better the reads the more frequent the accidents. Given a smooth, fair road, and the average auto driver seems to lose all sense of the principle of safety.. The tragedies of the road do not seem to be accepted as lessons by those who will not learn until brought to grief by their own folly. ; o rr.' We do not usually go to the trouble to make corrections where we are concerned, but will state for the bene fit of the Times-Union and the Tampa Tribune that the editor of the Evening Telegram has not been sporting a black eye. The person who had that adornment, and who claimed that he got It while cranking a car, is a dif ferent person from the editor of the Evening Telegram as different as day from night. o Congratulations to the ."arasotd Times on having celebrated . 'ne teenth birthday- Founded by i s. Wilson, one of Florida's grana old men of Journalism, It pursued tts steady and conservative way for over A decade, until t,he. death, of Mr. Wil ton, several years ago. Mrs. Wilson who had been her husband's efficient helper, bravely took up the burden of the entire business, and since that time the paper has grown and flour ished like the proverbial green bay tree. A linotype, a new preBB. and other modern equipment, has been provided by this brave and capable little woman, and her paper today stands as one of the Journalistic suc cesses of Florida, a monument to her energy and ability. Some women de liver lectures on woman's equality with man; Mrs. "Wilson Is a living example or woman s superiority to many men. It Is with genuine yieas ure that we note the success of the Sarasota Times- The Hillsborough county grand jury, after investigating one murder case and returning a true bill for murder in the Am? degree against Fannie ieCIerry. colored, was ad journed until the first Tuesday in September by Judge F.

McAdoo .Expects No Trouble In Securing; Authority to Cross Navigable Waters j (St. Petersburg Times.) W. D. McAdoo, who holds a per mit from the county commissioners, has made application to the Unite! States War Department at Jackson ville for a permit to build a bridge across Boca Ceiga bay- It Is expected that the department will promptly set a date for a hearing at St. Petersburg to decide if the proposed bridge will Interfere with navigation It Is not expected that there will he any objection on the part of naviga tion Interests on this point, as there is very little traffic on the bay on ac count of the narrowness and crook edness of the channel. When the St Petersburg Investment company ap plied for a permit last year somi op position developed at the meeting bo cause of the fact that the proposed bridge crossed the channel at an acute angle and at a point where the current was unusually swift The route selected by Mr. McAdoo does away with this possible objection, a it Is reported that the route selected by him crosses at a point consider ably north of the old route and spans the channel at right angles. Mr. McAdoo has bought all of the north end of Long Key except about 0 acres on the extreme northern tip. Long Key Is about four miles Ions and at this point is over half a mile wide. The bay channel runs very close to the island shore and Blinn pass gives an opening to the gulf for shallow-draft boats. Mr. McAdoo thinks that these and other advan tages justify him in developing a re sort here. He intends to call his de velopments St. Petersburg Beach. Mr. McAdoo, who Is-from Greens boro N. C, has spent almost a year in St. Petersburg and during that time he has familiarized himself thoroughly with conditions here and Is convinced that In spite of war con ditions Pinellas peninsula real estate has great possibilities for the invest or and developer.

Allen, constructing quarter master These consist of additional barracks and mess balls. The build ings now in progress represent an ex penditure of many thousands of dol lars, and the work is being rushed forward at the greatest possible speed. Among the buildings of an extraor dinary nature which are being erect ed In the camp proper are a powder magazine, two-story telephone build ing, a gas house and refrigerating plant. All of these buildings are of the best type and required the most skilled workers. The powder maga zine is being erected Just back of the line of warehouses and there will be munitions stored in it for the ord nance department's use. Build Gas House. The gas house is for experimental iiumoses and also Is back of the warehouses, where the miniature trenches have been dug for the pur pose of Instructing both officers and mon In the art of gas defense. In ihlrt gas house will be the real poison gases which the men will have to combat with the gas masks with which they are equipped. There also Is a large vault ordered built for the purpose of having place for the safe keeping of all money and valuable papers which are at the camp. This work also will be done under the supervision of Capt Allen. This will require work by high class masons and vault setters. Three large buildings, formerly lined as mess halls by the construct ing firm of A. Bentley & Sons, also are being remodeled into convenient class and work rooms for the reclam ation division. This in itself was a great piece of reclamation work on the part of Capt. Allen, who reclaimed the old mess halls for use instead of building three new warehouses and thus saved the government thousands of dollars apiece on the buildings. Many Incinerators Built Many additional incinerators are being constructed at the remount de pot, as well as two large stables. Two targe buildings for auto repair shops are being constructed, as well as an additional Are station, which alone will mean additional equipment which will be brought to this camp to safe guard the property of the government More than a mile of road will be rebuilt In the camp, which will be what formerly was the continuation of the county's brick road into the state camp reservation.
