THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Gentlemen of the Congress: The

tering entering will be the closing session of
the Sixty-third Congress, a Congress
which will long be remembered for
the great body of thoughtful and con
structive work which it has done, in
loyal response to the thought and
needs of the country. 1
While we have worked,at our tasks

have been altered by war. What we

World Affaini Upset by .War
War has interrupted the means of
trade not only but also the processes
of production. In Europe it is de destroying
stroying destroying men and resources wholesale
and upon a scale unprecedented and
appalling. There is reason to fear
that the time is near when several of
the countries of Europe will find it
difficult to do for their people what
they have hitherto been always easily
able to do. At any rate, they will
need our services as they have never
needed them beforehand we should
be ready, more fit and ready than we
have ever been.
Latin American Trade
It is of equal consecuence that v.he
nations whom Europe has usually
supplied with articles of manufacture
c&n now get only a small part of -what
they formerly imported and look1 to
us to supply their all but empty mar-
.kets. This is particularly true of
the states of Central and South Am-
. erica. Their lines of trade have hith-
'erto run to the ports of Europe. Here
are markets which we must supply,
and we must find the means of action.

never before, with' its 'resources and
its means of distribution.

I have come to ask you to remedy

Speaking of the deplorable' incident
of last week at Cocoanut Grove and
the general attitude of The Herald
on the subject, the Ocala Star says:

.It is not lynching, but farcial trials
that causes the citizens of Florida to

any man who knows he has made a

own life, or in the defense of any
one near and dear to him, the law
will make him almost as much trouble
as it would for his enemy if his ene enemy

Of course, the people of the state
could reform all of this if they would.

been going the other way.

Florida Power Company, to submit
the matter of supplying electric curT

decide whether they will take current
from the company's plant on the

It is a straight-forward, fair busi business

should take into consideration. The
Florida Power Company is an all all-home

is such, that the railroad commis commissioners

as a matter of right and justice, to

question, to authorize the curtail curtailment

The losses in revenue from freight

great many of the people of this and

not just and reasonable for the pub pub-lie

a minimum amount of business to be

tion of affairs we are confronted with
today, in not only Florida, but in
practically every state in the United
States. There are instances where
the figures show passenger train mile
earnings of only 11 to 21, cents per
train mile, during the period referred
to, when the cost per train mile of

that the commissioners have acted

We believe that the public will
agree that they have no right to de
mand a service of the railways, which
hey. are not supporting, and neither
this nor any other commission, can
successfully maintain that a service
must, be rendered, which results in
large losses. If we were to take the
other position, then the public would
have to pay for it by an increase in
rates, because the railway companies
under the laws of this country, have a
right to a reasonable return upon the
property devoted to public use.
It is with regret we find it neces

feel Florida is in better .shape gen

and we make this explanation, in the
hope that it will appeal to the fair-
mindedness -of the people of this
state, believing they are fair, when
once they know the facts.
In conclusion we wish to add that
we have an understanding with the
officers of all the railways, "whom we
have allowed to reduce their train
service, that the same will be resum resumed

Many men and women, whether
their incomes are large or small, find
it difficult to "get ahead" financially.
They postpone the time when they
will start saving to provide for the
rainy day because they never seem
to have enough spare money to start
a bank account. The Christmas Club
is a great benefit to the people in this
way, for they don't need any more
capital to get started than the first
small payment, and after all, the start
is the important thing.
The club opens the week of Decem December
ber December 28th and runs for fifty weeks, so
that each member receives a check in
time for Christmas shopping. When
payments are made regularly the
bank allows interest on the account,
which is always an encouragement to
A number of plans are offered and
members may select 'one or more of
them. In the uniform classes one may
pay 25c, 50c, $1 or $2 weekly, the
total amounting respectively to
$12.50, $25, $50 and $100. Another
way is what is known as the pro progressive
gressive progressive class, in wThich the payment
increases every week. One of these
classes starts at 2c, next week 4c,
and so on. The two cent progressive
club matures at $15.50. Then there
is a 5c. progressive club maturing
at $63.75. These progressive clubs
may be reversed, starting at the high
est amount first and finishing with
the lowest. The 5c. reducing class
starts at $2.50 and works down to 5c,
while the 2c starts at $1 and comes
down to 2c, as the last payment.

ing using a patented card system, in which
the record of payment is made by
j punching cards. This not only gives
the depositor a receipt, but also shows
exactly 'how much has been paid in to

This attractive method oi saving

The other topic I shall take leave to
.mention goes deeper into the prin principles
ciples principles of our national life and policy.
It is the subject of national defense.
It is said in some quarters that we are
not prepared for war. If it is meant
that we are not ready upon brief no notice
tice notice to put in the field a nation of
men trained to arms, we are not ready
to do that; and we shall never be so
long as we retain our present political
principles and institutions. We have
always found means to defend our ourselves
selves ourselves against attack, and shall find
then whenever it is necessary without
calling our people away from their
necessary tasks to render, compulsory
military service in times of peace.
We are at peace with all the world.
No one can say there is reason to fear
that our independence or the integrity
of our territory is threatened. Dread
of the power of any other nation we
are incapable of. We are not jealous
of rivalry in the field of commerce or
of any other peaceful achievement.
We mean to live our own lives as we
will; but we mean also to let live. We
are, indeed, a true friend to all the
nations of the world, because we
threaten none, covet the possessions
of none, desire the overthrow of none.
From the first we have had a clean
and settled policy with regard to mil military
itary military establishments. We never have
had, and while we retain our present
principles and ideals we never shall
have, a large standing army. We shall
not turn, America into a military
camp.- We will not ask our young
men to spend the best years of their
lives making soldiers of themselves.
There is another sort of energy in us.
It will know how to declare itself and
make itself effective should occasion
arise. And especially when half the
world is on fire we shall be careful to
make our moral insurance against the
spread of the conflagration very def definite
inite definite and certain and adequate indeed.
We must depend in every time of
national peril, not upon a standing
army, nor yet upon a reserve army,
but upon a citizenry trained and ac accustomed
customed accustomed to arms. It wUl be right
enough, American policy, to provide a
system by which every citizen who
will volunteer for the training may be
made familiar with the use of modem
arms, the rudiments of drill and man maneuver,
euver, maneuver, and the maintenance and sani sanitation
tation sanitation of camps. We should encour encourage
age encourage such training and make it a
means of discipline which our young
men will learn to value. We should
make it as attractive as possible, and
so induce our young men to undergo
it at such times as they can command
a little freedom and can seek the phy physical
sical physical development they need, for mere
health's sake. It is right, too, that
the National Guard of the states
should be developed and strengthened
by every means which .is not incon inconsistent
sistent inconsistent with our obligations to our
own people with the established policy
of our government.
Navy Must be Maintained

regarded as our proper and natural
means of defense; and it has always

never of aggression or of conquest.
