The president considers the commit committee

Senator Chamberlain left the White

bill must go back to the Senate and
House for further action. The possi
bility that the president might veto
the measure if they were left in it
was widely discussed in Congress.
It may be well enough for the pub

peachment the house of represents
tives may convene at any time and
upon its own initiative. It is provided
by section 29 of article 3 of our state
constitution that the governor and
certain other named officers are liable
to impeachment for any misdemeanor.
The word "misdemeanor" is here used
in no technical sense but in the pop popular
ular popular sense of misconduct. Misde
meanor in office, therefore, does not
necessarily denote a criminal offense.
Any' gross misconduct in office will
constitute a misdemeanor in office,
and who but a partisan will say that
Governor Catts has not been guilty of
misdemeanor in office in his wholesale
removals from office for the purpose
of making places for his political
cohorts ? These removals will cost the
state of Florida thousands of dollars

rises to the occasion. Tampa Times.
All that is needed is a man of nerve.

In replying to this uncalled for at attack,
tack, attack, the editor of the Lakeland Tele
gram states the following, which in
our opinion, is the only proper posi
tion for the editor of a secular news
paper to take:
"If the Evening Telegram has kept
its columns free from any one thing
it has been from the taint of secta
rianism or religious prejudice. Hun
dreds of people who have read! the
paper for years do not know the de
nomination of its editor, or whether
or not he has any. They could nevei
get a hint of this from the paper,
which has been liberal and fair with
every denomination and every shade
of belief. Not one line hostile to any
religious organization or society of
any kind has ever appeared in its
columns. On the contrary, every de
nomination, from the humblest to the
most powerful, has had its earnest
and most cordial co-operation in their
work for Christianity and morality."
It seems necessary to explain for
the benefit of the Ocala Star that a
Godfrey of Bouillon is a captain in the
soup. Times-Union.
The Encyclopedia Britannica says:
"Godfrey de Bouillon, one of the
foremost leaders in the first crusade,
was born at Baisy near Gemappe, in
Belgium, about 1060." It then goes
on to tell of the career of the famous
soldier who led the victorious cru
sadeTs into' Jerusalem in 1099. There
may be a joke about a "captain in the
soup," but if so it is so very obscure
that only the Times-Union writer and
a few of his cronies are wise to it.
The great mass of the people have
never heard of it.

Only a few days ago, you told us

days they collaborate, and the result
makes the unhappy reader cross-eyed.
Now, there is going ta be a great

A circular comes to us from the

the Valley-Gazette printed an adver advertisement,

to help test the constitutionality of
the draft law. The Valley-Gazette

explains that the advertisement does
not represent the sentiment nor the

will not print anything of the sort

have been "mistaken zeal" in the
Kissimmee postoffice, but it would be
a good thing if everybody in the
country was full of that sort of zeal.
TRAMMELL WAS
NOT AMONG THEM
In the Star of July 19 appeared an
ditorial criticising Senator Tram
mell for joining several other sena
tors in opposition to the aviation bill,
causing it to be delayed for several
days. The reason for the criticism
was a dispatch from Washington the
day before, announcing that Hard-
wick of Georgia had prevented the
bill from passing without debate,
and consequently without delay, by
offering an amendment, in which he
was joined by Trammell, Gore, Owen
and several others, including, of
course, LaFollette.
On a careful study of the Con
gressional Record of July 18, how
ever, we find no mention of Mr.
Trammell taking part in the debate.
Mr. Hardwick offered an amendment
to remove the draft provision from
the bill, and he was supported by
Vardaman, Owen and LaFollette, the
latter simply saying the bill could not
be passed that day.
It therefore appears that we have
criticised Senator Trammell unjustly.
We withdraw the criticism and apol apologize
ogize apologize for making it.
We are glad, however, to do this;
for we do not want any senator or
representative to make any move that
will hamper the administration in its
tremendous task; and we believe we
have the almost undivided approval
of the people of Marion county in this
desire.
We should have attended to this
matter before, but it was only last
night that we were able to study out
the long and intricate debate in the
Congressional Record. They surely
do kill time, those Solons. If when
a man arose to present a measure, he
would explain it at once instead of
windjamming for several minutes
explaining himself, the work would
be done in much less time.

AX IDEAL SUNDAY
EAST OF THE OKLAWAHA

Of the many beautiful spots in
Marion county there is none that can
surpass the site of the Ocklawaha
Bridge Baptist church. The magnifi magnificent

never known the woodman's ax and
the clear silvery waters of the lake

grand old hymns of Zion swelled
forth from the hearts of the worship worshipers,

Rev. J. F. Rorex, pastor of the In.

of the morning. His subject was,
"The Drama of Life," and he used as
a scripture text the matchless par parable

the beloved pastor of the Ocklawaha
Bridge church, closed the service
with a heartfelt and eloquent mes message.

spread under the shade of the trees,
and the slogan seemed to be "Lay on

board one would not dream that there
could be war or want in all the world,
and yet the outlay of money was not
great, for as Commissioner Norman
Fort said to the writer, "We raise it
nearly all at home."
In the afternoon Mrs. E. Van Hood,
superintendent of woman's work in
the association, held a conference,
presenting for discussion the varied
departments of denominational work,
stressing particularly the needs of
Columbia College. Upon roll call it
was found that there were seven
churches represented.

It was a great day, full to over overflowing

Among the visitors who enjoyed the
day with this delightful community
we noted Rev. R. F. Rogers, Mrs. F.

There was but one minor note in all

was made by the absence of Mr. W.

Steel for Battleships.
Nearly 15,000 gross tons of steel will
be needed to build the 66 various new

taken by the United States navy in
October. When these are added to our
navy they will make It one of the most
formidable in the world. Some en enlightening

naval vessels appear in Popular Me Mechanics

of steel ; In the 20 new destroyers, 325

submarines, 186 tons each. A hospital
hip and an ammunition ship will need

And I know, for I shoved my old
