"One who had never seen a country would learn almost as much about It from merely reading the advertisements in its newspapers ac from the paper itself. He might not read quite so much about those ephemeral situations that come and go at the will of politicians, but he would learn a great deal about how the actual every-day peoplo are spending their time, what things amuse and instruct them, what things give them comfort and Joy.

J HIGHLANDERS TO COME BACKAGAIN; TWO SOLOISTS TO BE HEARD HERE While no contract has been signed it has been practically settled that the Royal Scotch Highlanders band, with Roy D. Smith as leader, will furnish the music in Williams park rfext win ter. The formal contract will be signed when the city commission ap proves the budget recommended by the City Library and Advertising Board. Mr. Smith and his band now are at Atlantic City playing at Young's pier and Will advertise St. Petersburg at every concert, display ing prominently notice that tho band is. to play in the Sunshine City next winter, with free concerts in the park. The band next winter will have 20 pieces and there will be two vocal soloists. Bobby Brollier, who has won the winter visitors in St. Peters burg, will have an assistant next sea son and it is believed that the addi tional soloist will add- to the attrac tions of the band. - 1 The City Library and Advertising Board and Mr. Smith have been in. correspondence ana nave agreed on terms for the concerts to cover a pe riod of 12 weeks. The only question that remains to be settled Is that of financiers . If the money needed is available the Boardwlll close the contract wigsStjmith to bring his band here. The coming of the band is In a measure contingent on 'the people approving, at the election to day, the charter amendment allowing a levy of 11-2 mills for advertising and library purposes.

Theclty commissioners, at a meet In j last night, adopted a resolution declaring that it is the sense of tht commission- that the Highlander band ought to be brought back next winter. This action was taken at the instance of Mayor Lang who said Mr. Smith wants to know now whether he is come back here so that be can pdvertlse St. Petersburg at Atlantic City.

' 'TIS A WILD SCHEME Further study of the now rather famous. Plumb plan for the confisca tion of railroad properties, induces the belief that it is merely a modified form of the proposals of the infam ous Trotzky-and Lenine At .least, it is the entering wedge.. ''What a great J many people fail to realize-is that the railroads of tills country are owned by several hun dred thousand different people, and not by' the large financial interests, as so many fondly believe. The shares of these roads are owned by small investors, savings banks, char itable institutions, by estates, by wid ows and orphans, by life insurance companies and By the common people, generally. It is proposed to divest these peo ple of their property and to substi tute therefor, whether they accept the proposition or not, the obligations of the government at a fixed rate of interest. Let us glance .at what that would do to financial conditions. It is esti mated that it will require , any where from twenty to thirty billions of dol lars in bonds to complete this trans action, although nobody knows the exact amount. , These bonds would practically be on the market, and by their extent would have an effect on thsm Liberty bonds, for which the country so lib erally subscribed to carry on the war. Every man who owns a Liberty bond would suffer by just the amount that this issue would depreciate his little securities. Even the government of; the United States cannot issue unlim ited quantities of bonds and hold them at par. Furthermore, there would be a dis turbance of the present bond issues of the railroads that would inevitably work disaster, not only to the bond holders, but to the public at large. The bolshevik! in Russia divested the owners of large estates of their holdings. They then deprived every body of ownershop in property. The American proposition is first to divest railroad owners of their property, and if that succeeds, we may well expect to see the program fully car ried out according to the Russian idea. When Lenlne and Trotzky appro priated the landed estates of Russia they proposed to hand them over to the peasants. And they did, for a time. It is now seriously proposed to hand over the railroad interests to the railroad operatives, ' It is difficult to see much. If " any, difference be tween the former proposition and the Plumb planJ So we have the bald proposition to the American people that they are to assist in the expropriation of the rail roads from the people who have built them, and converted to the use of the railroad employes who conduct them. The employes do not propose to fur nish any of the capital to finance the scheme, the people must do all that. The employes propose to have the majority voice in the control of the ITALY MAY CEDE PART OF INDEMNITY TO ENGLAND (By Associated Press'.) i;Rome, Aug. ,15.

(By Associated Press ) 4 Sidney, Australia, Aug. 15 Survey of the route of the first section of the projected aerial service-between Sydney and London was recently com pleted. The section extends from Sydney to Darwin, which is on the north coast of Australia and relative ly near the Malayan Archipelago, The service will be carried on by a Sydney company. From Darwin the route will cross tho sea to the Island of Timor, pro ceed along the Malayan Archipelago to India, and thence run to Bagdad or Port Sai4probably the latter. From Port Said it will cross Europe to Lon don. The survey of the second sec tion of the route,' ' from " Darwin through Malaya to Delhi, .is now go ing on. . 1 It is expected that the first flight will be made within the 'next few months, and It is planned to have the proposed passenger and commercial services in full operation in about two years. If the company succeeds London will be reached regularly from here in 6 1-2 days.. The Sydney-Darwin section Is 2,000 miles. But the survey .party travelled about 4,000 miles in order to select the most satisfactory land ing places or relay stations. When he flights are in full swing business between Sydney and Lon don will be greatly facilitated from the fact that letters may be answered within two weeks of their dispatch from here. railroads and then, if there are any profits, after paying themselves the salaries and wages they think they ought to have, those profits are to be " shared equally between the neonle and the employes, themselves. They take no risks, themselves, as to pos sible losses, for their proposition says nothing of the deficits that are ine-'J" vitable. They Bay not a word of the billion dollar loss the government has already sustained through Its opera tions of the roads. They do not pro pose a sharing in deficits and losses. but only in the profits. The proposition might be accept able to the people of Russia, who do not know any better, but in intelli gent America it ought not and will not receive any more consideration than have any of the other wild schemes that are occasionally pro pounded as curtails for economic conditions.
