There Is a great celebration going
on at Pensacola today If the program

accompanied by her sister ship, the

Utah, arrived in Pensacola harbor Fri
day, and the presentation of the sil

Ter service given by our state to the

magnificent vessel named after it was

to take place today. We print on our
first page the speech to be made by
Governor Gilchrist. It Is full of good

ens and good humor, and will very

well '. repay perusal

The Plant City Courier, which is a

very well edited paper, advocates do

in away with the second primary,
which it says could be done by putting

blanks for second and third choice for

each office on the ballots. The Cour

ier's suggestion is practical, but the

fitar would like for all hands to re remember'
member' remember' that it would require tremen

dously large ballots to carry it out

Some of the ballots in use now will
hardly go on a press, and If their size
was to be more than doubled they
would either have to be cut and pasted

or the names and offices of the can

didates would have to be printed in

parallel columns.

The voters should at once bring

, pressure to bear on the state demo

cratic executive committee to enable

them to express their preference for
presidential candidates. It could easily

be don by putting on every ballot

three or four blank spaces, In one of

which the TOter to write the name of

his favorite candidate.

We cordially invite you to

call at any time. It is not

necessary to wait until yoa

It is not necessary for you

to delay opening an account
