Tho Kissimmee Valley-Gazette
prints the following, which gives
strong reasons for a good attendance
at the meetings in Ocala and Kissim Kissimmee,
mee, Kissimmee, March 23 and 26, and a con concerted
certed concerted effort to enforce the long and
short haul law:
The Long and Short Haul
Within the past few years this
country has been aroused as never
before to the soundness of the good
old doctrine of "Equal rights to all;
special privileges to none." This
revival of appreciation of such sound
doctrine has led to the enactment of
a new tariff, because it was found
that any industry built without a
proper foundation, that is to say., es established
tablished established as a special privilege, was
exacting heavy toll from the public.
The public conscience has been
aroused to the fact that each indus industry
try industry ought to stand on its own foun foundation,
dation, foundation, and any place, or industry,
or individual built up by artificial
means was not reaching the highest
development of which they were
capable, and that if artificial means
were necessary to maintain such.
that it should be withdrawn.
The same idea to our mind holds t
true as to place, industry and indi individuals
viduals individuals being built up. maintained
or destroyed by railroad companies.
We do not feel that one community
or one individual should be taxed by
the railroad traffic to support an another
other another community or another indi individual
vidual individual or another industry.
Not many years ago the town of
Palatka started out with the bright brightest
est brightest prospects of becoming a commer commercial
cial commercial center. It seemed that the rail
road decided that Palatka should
not become a wholesale center, but
that Jacksonville should become the
whole thing. With this end in view,
before the establishment of the rail railroad
road railroad commission in Florida, the Pal Palatka
atka Palatka wholesaler might ship to a
nearby point, say. not more than ten
or fifteen miles from Palatka. hie
merchandise. The rates would be
charged from Jacksonville to the
point of destination rather than
from Palatka to the point of desti
nation. The same general principle
applies now, when the railroad
charges more for a short haul than
for a long.
Perhaps it is no: generally known
to what extent this long and short
haul is exercised in interior towns.
To illustrate: A sack of corn or
oats may be shipped from Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville thru Kissimmee to Tampa for
eleven cents; the same sack shipped
from Jacksonville to Kieimmee di direct
rect direct costs twenty cents. A barrel of
flour shipped from Jacksonville to
Tampa thru Kissimmee for twenty twenty-one
one twenty-one cents; from Jacksonville to Kis
simmee it costs thirty-five. To co a!
little further: A ton of fertiliser
shipped from Jacksonville to Tanhpa
thru Kissimmee for $1.60; from
Jacksonville to Kissimmee $2.20. It
is very plain therefore, that Kissim Kissimmee
mee Kissimmee pays upon grain from Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville nine cents more per sack thjan
Tampa pays; fourteen cents per bar barrel
rel barrel more on flour than Tampa pays;
sixty cents more for fertilizer than
Tampa pays. Thus the interior mer merchant
chant merchant is charged much greater rte
than the Tampa merchant. If anyone
supposes for a moment that t ils
comes out of the merchant's pocket,
he is very much mistaken, as it is
properly added to the actual cost, so
in the long run the excessive change
comes out of the consumer, and the
only way to avoid that is to have cjur
railroad companies stand by the lfiw lfiw-passed
passed lfiw-passed by the last session of the leg legislature,
islature, legislature, that is, prohibiting the
charging of more for a short hi ul
than' for a long haul, and to por
suade them that it is wise and prop proper
er proper to exercise the rights conferred by
this law upon them, to waive these
rates in eertain specified cases.
The railroad commissioners are to

Miami Metropolis of Feb. 24:
Tourists Io Nit Want Saloons
It is an exploded fallacy in these
davs to argue that the saloon traffic
is a business aid to a community, or
that, the suppression of the rum
trade is harmful to the business life
of a resort city. This was proven by
the experience last summer of Atlan Atlantic
tic Atlantic City, which is admittedly the
greatest pleasure resort in the world.
This was one of the notable state statements
ments statements made to the Metropolis Sat Saturday
urday Saturday by J. S. Benn, city editor of
what perhaps is the greatest news newspaper
paper newspaper in the country, the Philadel Philadelphia
phia Philadelphia North American; a statement
which we greatly enjoy republishing
isasmuch as the same experience is
recorded in Miami.
Unsettled business conditions all
over he country were reflected here
in the earlier days of the winter sea season,
son, season, and immediately the liquor in interests
terests interests atempted to lay the blame up upon
on upon the closed saloon. A newspaper
henchman of the rum traffic even
stated in its editorial columns that
visitors were leaving Miami rapidly
because they "could not get legally
served" 'but it is not even possible
now to lie about the season's dull dullness,
ness, dullness, for the city is crowded with sat satisfied,
isfied, satisfied, good-looking visitors and more
are coming in on every train.
"The suppression of the liquor
traffic," said Mr. Benn, "has gone
beyond the pe. iod of being only p
moral or ethical question. It is now
an economic issue in public affairs.
As such it is making tremendous
strides in the north and is coming to
the fore as a political issue in every
section. Surprising as it may seem,
even in Pennsylvania, which a com com-paratievly
paratievly com-paratievly few years ago voted down
a prohibition amendment to the con
stitution by nearly 500,000 majority,
there is now such a strong ar.ti-sa-
loon sentiment that the passage of a
local option law by the legislature
next winter is a certainty. This will
undoubtedly be followed by voting
the saloon out of existence in from
one-half to two-thirds of the coun
ties of Pennsylvania.
And thus the same sort of senti
ment is growing in every part of the
country. The big business concerns
are putting the ban on the employ
ment of tipplers and boozers. Even
the "personal liberty" advocates are
realizing that their arguments for
this "liberty" have been merely a de
fense of the Greed that is really the
basis of all the rum traffic a de defense
fense defense of Greed and the brothel and
the gambling joint, which Mr. Benn
so tritely calls the "side partners" of
the' saloon traffic and they are man manifestly
ifestly manifestly deserting their colors.
The Philadelphia North American
is making a big fight for the passage
of the prohibitory amendment in
Pennsylvania, just as every news newspaper
paper newspaper advocate of right must do
when such measures are at issue.
Long has Miami been advocating
and working for a clean town, and,
since saloons and blind tigers have
quit supplying (?) she is succeeding
admirably. If you don't believe it,
