Ward.t SOLDIER CANDIDATES IN FRANCE Paris, June 18. The political up heaval in France, predicted as an af termath of the war, appears to have begun. After the modification of fac tional lines in the Socialist party, the former extremist minority has be come the majority. The new Socialist majority, taking a far more extreme position than the element led by Albert Thomas and Marcel Sembat, former war minis ters, does not yet openly pronounce for Bolshevist principles, though in the majority there is a still further extremist minority that demands im mediate adherence to the doctrines of Lenlne. Several new political elements ap pear to be in the making and in some of them the soldier will, for the first time, make his influence felt. Soldier candidates are likely to be numerous. There is already talk of Colonel Raynal, the hero of the fort of Vaux, as a candidate against the Socialist leader and Bolshevist sym pathizer, Jean Longuet, grandson of Karl Marx M. Caillaux, whose candi dacy for reelection in the Sarthe has been announced, may aiso nave a soldier opponent.

"WHAT'S THE USEP In the last few months we have heard a good many men who have been staunch Democrats all their lives say they would not vote in the next primary. "What is the use?" they say. "Thousands of men who voted in it in 1916-broke their pri mary obligations." This from the Ocala Star a staunch Democratic paper. The paragraph brings, once more, to the front the very pertinent question, who is a democrat in Florida? Those who remember the primary and subsequent election of three years ago, will have no difficulty in recollecting that thousands of so called democrats, after they had par ticipated in the primaries called by the democratic state executive com mittee, voted for a candidate who had been defeated in the primary and helped to elect him. There was a very general repudiation of party ob ligations. Now both he and they claim to be true-blue democrats and defy anyone to say they are not. The trouble is that we have no standards by which to Judge. It has been a matter of nineteen years since any democrat authority adopted a platform in the state. Much water has run under the bridge since the year 1900, the last time a democratic convention met in Florida, and con ditions have materially changed. Notwithstanding the lapsed time REDUCED RATES ON MAIL SOON Postoffice Department Now Promises 2-Cent Letters After July 1 Postal rates on letters and postal cards will return to their pre-war basis July 1, accoiding to an order received from the postofllce depart ment at Washington. Beginning next month first class mall will be trans mitted at the rate of two cents an ounce or fraction thereof, instead of three cents, and one-cent postcards will come into service again. All three-cent stamped envelopes and two-cent postals will be redeem ed at their face value during the month of July, Postmaster W. L. Straub announced today. Owners of tjuch envelopes and postal cards may, after the first of the month, return such goods to the local postofflce and exchange them for new envelopes and postals amounting to the same value. This redemption must be made in July. Business houses and other con cerns and men accustomed to volum inous correspondence are particular ly affected by the reduction of post age, since it means a saving of one third their stamp expenditures. And practically everyone who uses the mails at all will not be displeased at the news, hoping that the decrease will extend Itself to transportation rates and commodities in general un til all are returned to their ante-bellum schedules.

GLOOM SETTLES DOWN ON NASSAU Preparations to Alleviate Drought In U. S. Will Go For Naught As Gov ernment Expects to 'Use Ward Line to Bring Troops Home Miami, June 18. Nassau's dream of an old-time season this winter, with all the big tourist hotels full of the roof and the parks and parade av enues ashimmer with white gowns and colorful sunshades, seems to have gone glimmering with the awakening, reluctant, but no longer , deniable, to the fact that there is not likely to be any way to get the tourists there. The awakenig is all the more dis mal because Nassau had been plan ning on a big scale. This was to have been the greatest season in its history. With the United States go ing dry July 1, and revenue cutters and subchasers patrolling the coast to enforce the ban on John Barleycorn, as an undesirable, and with the thou sands and thousands of enforced "dry" ones, tortured by a thirst pro longed through July, August, Septem ber, October and November, the Nas-sauites,- that is, the hotel operators and others who profit by their winter clientele, had hopefully conjured up a picture of the wild rush to their shores of people bent on breaking their long drouth, regardless of ex pense. So the Nassaultes have been busy, according' to reports, building, en larging, repairing and planning club houses and renovating hotels that had been lonesomely empty during the war and laying in a whale of a Btock of booze. And in the brief periods they stopped to catch their breath and to snatch a spell of much-needed rest, they probably pitied Miami; for they were going to gain at Miami's loss. Nothing yet in Miami but the water, so why go there, when gay old Nassau, with tons of stuff on ice, was once more accessible? Then it was suddenly discovered that Uncle Sam's plans were going to interfere with the plans of these par ticular Nassaurites, for, It seems at this time, Uncle Sam will be using thQ ships that were keing counted on to bring the "dry" wealth and fashion No Decision Today (By Associated Press.j Paris, Tuesday, June 18.

"It is stated that 1500,000 will be spent at once with plans laid for sev eral millions. A bridge, the finest possible to build, will be thrown across the bay at once.

S. to Nassau, to bring back soldiers from France, or take more soldiers to France, as the case may be, depending on whether or not Germany signs. This, in effect, is the news impart ed In a communication just received by a Miamlan interested in a building project in Nassau, from a New York er largely interested in the same and similar projects. The communication says that the only llne that touches at Nassau, the lino that was to have car ried thirsty humanity there thowarJ line, will be tied up with the govern ment, bringing home doughboys from over there, and the indications are that the ships will not be released in time to do Nassau much good this coming season. The communication says, further, that judging from the existing un promising outlook, the big Nassau hotels will not attempt to open. The writer describes the hotel people as being extremely pessimistic. The duration of the war was a bard flnan I cial blow to them, and with no trans portation sufficiently adequate In sight to warrant the opening of their . hoHtlories before the season of 1920 1 21, they are, It is said, regarding the situation with gloomy emotions. All this, says the recipient of the communication, will help Miami, of course. Also, it is entirely probable that In the long run It will help the hundreds of disappointed ones, for In , stead of going to Nassau and a steady , debauch, they can come to Miami and enjoy rest and health-building recrea tion.
