REASONS FOR REPEAL
The Savannah News gives the fol-
lowing very good reasons why the j
president should be supported in his j
attempt to have the exemption act j
The president depends upon three
things for the passage of the repeal
bill. The first is that tolls exemption
for our coastwise ships is a violation
of the Hay-Pauneefote treaty, the
second is that tolls exemption means
a ship subsidy an immense one to
which the democratic party is oppos opposed,
ed, opposed, and the third is that tolls exemp exemption
tion exemption isn't in harmony with demo democratic
cratic democratic sentiment, notwithstanding the
fact that the national democratic
platform favors tolls exemption for
our coastwise ships.
There is no occasion for arguing
the first, for the reason that as far as
the average reader can see exemption
of our coastwise vessels from the
payment of Panama tolls does violate
the treaty. And that being the case
there ought to be no hesitation in
repealing the exemption act. As has
been pointed out many times it would
be better to fill up the canal than to
stand before the nations in the atti attitude

the democratic members of Congress
opposed the exemption provision of

administration isn't really asking
that any democratic policy shall be
abandoned. It is simply asking that
the nation stand by its solemn treaty
The administration is going to
win in this fight but the fight is go going

have asked for an opportunity to be

more popular with the people than
he is now.
STUNG BY THE TRANSIENT
Orlando Sentinel: Several busi business
ness business men of Orlando have been stung
again by an itinerant advertising
solicitor, in spite ;Of the Sentinel's
warnings against such agents. A
few days ago a person appeared at
the office of Dr. J. F. McKinnon, su superintendent
perintendent superintendent of public instruction,
and secured from him a copy of a re report
port report blank of the kind used to re
port to parents the class standing
and general average of pupils in the
public schools. The solicitor went
out armed with this copy from the
superintendent's office and began so soliciting
liciting soliciting advertisements to be printed
on a card to contain the report blank
the idea being to furnish the cards
free for use in the schools, allowing
the advertiser the privilege of pay paying
ing paying for them. The business men
were easy and readily gave up five
dollars each for space on the cards.
The cards were delivered to the su superintendent's
perintendent's superintendent's office, and there they
will remain until they are dumped
into the ash barrel. The superin
tendent says he would not think of
recommending the use of them in the
schools. So where will the five dol dollars
lars dollars each of the merchants land? In
the ash barrel.
A rather amusing feature of this
incident is the fact that among the
advertisers is a merchant who not
long ago directed the attention of the
Sentinel to a similar imposition that
had been worked on the business
men of the town by another travel
ing salesman. He wanted the Senti
nel to perpetrate a "trade at home'
article on the subject, and the Sen
tinel did. The difference between
tnat piece or Dusmess and this is
that the merchant in question was
hit that time, and he felt it. This
time the Sentinel and every other
newspaper in town is hit, but the
merchant didn't see it that way and
helped the fellow get away with a
neat sum without rendering any
equivalent whatever. Funny world,
! isn't it. ?

The Star takes great pleasure in
reproducing the following from the
Cases Not Identical
Mr. Underwood, who is leading
the fight against the repeal of the
exemption of coastwise vessels of the
United States from Panama canal
tolls, is quoted as saying:
"I can see no real distinction be between
tween between a ship loaded at Duluth with
wheat going thru the Sault Ste. Ma Marie
rie Marie canal without lockage charges
and landing its cargo at Buffalo, or
a barge loaded with coal starting at
Pittsburg going thru the canal and
locks on the Ohio river and unload unloading
ing unloading its freight at New Orleans, and
a ship starting with American
merchandise from the port of San
Francisco going thru the Panama
canal free of tolls and landing its
cargo at New Orleans or New York."
Mr. Underwood thinks that since
our government has never charged
tolls on waterways it has made or
improved, it should not take tolls
from the class of vessels that could
use our internal waterways when us using
ing using the canal that it has cut across
the isthmus of Panama.
This is the most plausible state statement

subsidy agreement against giving a
special privilege to our coastwise
shipping. It does not touch the in international

But even considering only our

the presentation of a rule to limit

For two hours the rale alternately
was defended and attacked in hot
debate in the House. When adjourn adjournment

on the rule left for today, Speaker
Champ Clark, who before had not
announced his position on the repeal
policy, issued a statement vigorously
opposing the rule.
"Surely there is nothing sacred

no reason for this mad rush," said
the speaker's statement.

Ralph W. Tyler, Prominent Colored
Man, Pays Ocala a Visit
Ralph W. Tyler of Washington,
organizer for the National Negro
Business League, spent yesterday and
today in Ocala, and lectured last
night to a large gathering of his race
in the Metropolitan hall, at which
time a local league was formed.
Ralph Tyler, up to the time of
Wilson administration and the dem democratic
ocratic democratic party's rise to power, held
the position of auditor of the United
States navy for six years. He had
150 clerks under him and was at the
head of probably the largest bureau
and auditing department in the
world, with accounts representing
billions of dollars passing through
his hands. The accounts of the navy
are said, by experts at Washington,
to be the most complex of all the
government departments. Ralph Ty Tyler
ler Tyler says he has traveled all over the
United States and that Ocala is one
of the prettiest and cleanest places
he has ever seen, and that it has
more pretty homes than any town of
its size he has visited, north or south.
The Ocala branch of the National
Negro Business League organized
here last night is in the nature of a
board of trade for the colored peo people,
ple, people, and the work to be done by the
organization is along the lines of
business improvement, civic work
and the general development and up uplifting
lifting uplifting of the colored race. Ralph
Tyler's lecture last night was along
these lines and was greatly appre appreciated
ciated appreciated by his audience.
He complimented the leaders of
his race here on the good work they
are doing, their success in business
and the big share they are doing in
developing their city.
