The mayor and council of Lawrence-
ville, Ga., have enacted an ordinance
imposing a license tax of $1,000 on all
persons or corporations delivering
within the corporate limits any intoxi-
cating liquors. This will doubtless oblige
the "blind tigers" and chronic drinkers
to receive their supplies at the nearest
flag station, but it will not serve to
keep liquor out of a "dry" county.

that the talented Buckman, or the ver-
satile Melton, or the distinguished
Stockton, are not Democrats:
"Where are the Duval Democrats,
as none asked for or were called to of-
fice in the Iegislature? Perhaps all are
satisfied to have the Governor from
this county."
The distinguished editor of the Louis-
ville Courier-Journal, who is now mak-
ing a tour of Europe, pays the follow-
ing Just and eloquent tribute to the
West Coast of Florida:
"The day is coming when the invalid
world will flock to Florida, Colorado
and California The West Coast (of
Florida) holds Itself in reserve. The
success which has been achieved on
the East Coast will tempt millions to

beautiful More and more Americans

their own country, Of its money-mak-

of five young men who contested for
this prize, the axambitkm being super-

amination papers were sealed, forward-
ed to Washington, and thence to Oxford,
where they were graded. The Florida

Prof. A. A. Murphree, president Flor-

Whaley of Pensacola (a graduate" of
Kenyon College, Ohio) had stood suc-

made their selection upon the following
bases: Scholarship, 80 per cent; fond-
ness for athletics and athletic record, 20
per cent- honesty, morality, and gen-
eral good character, 30 per cent; popu-
larity and leadership among fellow-stu-
dents, 20 per cent.
It was determined by the committee
that young men born reared and edu-

In view of the Impendlna battle be.
tween the Rusasan and Japanese fleets,
the following comparlsoa a to
strength will be found interesting:
Russla-Battleships, seven; armored
cruisers and armored coast defense
p. vessels, two; protected cruisers, elev-
en; transports and converted liters
(estimated), twenty.
Japan-Battleships, four or five;
armored cruisers and armored coast
defense vessels, ten; protected crals-t
ers, twelve; transports and convert-
ed liners (estimated), ten.
Total-Russia, 50; Japan, 36 or 37.
The exact strength of the two fleets
in guns cannot be told exactly, be-
cause the armament of the Russian
volunteer fleet and of the twenty odd
transports s 'not known in detail.
But In a general way the following
estimate will show the relative
strength of the squadrons:
Russia-12-inch guns, 24; 10-inch
guns, four; 8-inch guns, eight; 6-inch
guns. 150 to 200; smaller guns (esti-
L mated at 30 for battleshIps and 15 for
all other vessels), 675; total 911.
Japan-12-inch guns, 22 to 26; 10-
inch guns, five; 8-Inch guns, 34; 6-
inch guns, 190; smaller guns (esti-
mated at 30 for battleships and 15 for
all other vessels), 630; total 885.
Total guns, both fleets, 1,79Q.
In this table it will be seen that
the Russians have the advantage in
numbers, but are so deficient in ar-
mored cruisers that they stand a very
jpnn how against the Japanese fleet.
""'W ten swift, well-armed and well-
manned armored cruisers which Togo
has constitute, possibly, a more for-
midable fighting unit than his four or
five more heavily armed and armored
battleships. During the Spanish-
American war the S-Inch rifles with
which these cruisers are armed were
even more effective than the 12 or 13-
inch guns. The latter, of course, do
more damage, but they are slower,
harder to aim and register a much
smaller number of hits than the
However, the ft-inch rifle is also a
wonderfully effective arm and the
Russian anuiliary cruisers, converted
iners and transports are probably
4f crowded with them. An exact esti-
mate of the srength of the two fleets
'n respect to this gun Is, therefore,
In protected and auxiliary cruisers,
,he Russians have the advantage.
Their scont versels of from 3,500 to
.60n) tons. are new. very fast and
very effective, as the Ifttle Novik
proved at Port Arthur. In a battle
they are everywhere, and nowhere
and can brave a heavy fire with sur-
prising impunity.

It is the belief that the eightheoar
law does not apply to the canal aso.
Chief engineer Wallace says that it
would very seriously Impede work to
have the eight-hour law la effect In
the construction of the canaL It
would be impossible to make uniform
hours for all the labor, because some
labor musj be employed twelvee hours,
while ten hours is the regular rule
for most of the workingmen.
The train crews that haul the men
to and from the work must work an
extra Hour, morning and night, after
the other men have concluded their
labor. If it is decided that eight
hours constitute the day's work these
men would necessarily work ten hours
in order to perform their duty and ac-
complish results.


A Disastrous Colision in Which No Loss of
Life Occurred.
A dispatch from Kinglsley, Ark.,
says: Twenty or more passengers
were injured, but none killed, by a
collision of the Chicago Express and
California Limited train on the Atch.
Sion, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad,
at 10 o'clock Monday night. Both
trains were east bound. No. 8, the
Chicago Express, was standing at the
station when No. 4, the limited, crash-
ed into it at high speed.
The engine of the second train
plowed Into the last Pullman sleeper
of the other train, demolishing It.
The cars in front also were badly
damaged and the limited's locomotive
and part of that train wrecked. The
names of the injured cannot be' learn-
ed as yet. The railroad officials put
them all in a car and took them to
the west end of the yard. The reast
car of No. 8 was a dead-bead car.
This was cut through from end to
end by the heavy engine, and the
Pullman ahead of this was thrown off
the track. Both immediately took
fire and. with the chair and mall cars,
were entirely consumed.
The engineer of No. 4 Is uninjured,
hut the fireman is seriously hurt, as
sl also a porter on No. 8, and a cook
on the limited. The collision was
caused. It is said by the rear brake-
man of No. 8 not going back to flag
No. 4.


Man Unhesitatinqly Jumps Into Well and
Saves Child from Drowning.
While playing in an old lot near
h'r home In Winder, Ga., Monday
afternoon, Mary I)ottery, three years
old, fell through the rotten planking
of a disused well filled with water.
The mother and several ladles wit-
nessed the occurrence and their fren-
zied screams attracted the attentlot,
of Colonel H. T. Etheridge, a promi-
nent citizen, passing on the street.
He ran to the scene and, without
waiting to divest his clothing, Jumped
down Into the well, caught the child's
sinking body and managed to keep
It afloat until the assistance of near-
by workmen was brought.
The child was unconscious when
rescued, but heroic methods of re-

The squadron was led by a large

The Russian consul at 1Sinpore
visited and gave dispatches to a tor-
pedo boat.
The fleet did not stop to receive
dispatches or to conmstt with the con-
sul. Subsequently the consul visited
Vice Admiral Rojestvensay's ship,
talking to him from a launch. He
did not board the vessel, but was
cheered heartily on leaving the side

tute a potential threat against Ad.

Thus Admiral Togo seems to be
virtually placed between two fires.
The pease Influences in the gov-
ernment urge that this favorable
strategic position presents the psycho-
logical moment for offering officially
the olive branch to Japan, reasoning
that no matter bow confident the Jap-
anese government may be of Togo's
victory, it cannot overlook the possal-
bility of defeat, nor fall to appreciate
the complete disater which would
follow the transfer of the mastery bf
the aea to Russia.
Some naval officers express the opin.*
ion that Rojestvensky, having now
sebly navigated the straits, instead of
of sailing north to meet the Japanese,
can afford to calmly await Vice Ad-
miral Nebogatoff, with his division of
the squadron. who could arrive there
In about three weeks.

PreesiMeat Jordea Cells Attestlea to Dle-
semiaelise of fake Litereture.
President Harvie Jordan, upon his
turn to Georgia from a tour of the
southern states In the interest of the
movement inaugurated by the South-
ern Cotton Association, has written
an article for the press of the south,
in which he points out that here
will be a great reduction of acreage
In every section of the south. Mr. Jor-
dan is well satisfied with his trip and
the results acootmplished.
In this Interview he calls attention
of the press to the fact that all sort
of "bearish" literature sla being dis-
seminated throughout the country for
the purpose of Influencing people In1
every section to plant more cotton.
He cites Instances of where the buy-
ing of so much cotton in Texas is alli
a fake and shows up In decided terms
.a well known cotton buyer in the
Lone Star state. Mr. Jordan says:
"Never In the history of the south
has so much 'bearish' literaturle been
disseminated throughout the entire
cotton producing belt as has been
done during the past f w months. The
press of the south has unwittingly
published an enormous amount q.f
these misstatements, sent out In spe-
cial dispatches by people who are In.
restedd in depressing the price of
cotton, and have been used as a me
dlum to create false Impressions upon
the minds of the people with reference
to the present movement of the cot-
ton rop. While the entire press of
the south has given to the Bouthera
Cotton Aseoclation and Its objects and
purposes the most loyal support and
cooperation, ddvertheless the columns
of their papers have been used to
further the aue qf e br element
through the publication o miass{at-e.
menis which have been furnished the
press as, apparently, coming from au
thboritative sources. Te time has
come when the press of the south
should critically scan all statements
furnished them from euch sources and
refuse to publish Information of that
kind until after a complete Investi-
gation has been made as to the truth-
fulness or falsity of the statements

The child was encouraged by even
this trifling success, and set lierself In-
dnstrloiusly to work painting ter
hter'u domestic animals, consisting of
large dog. a cat and an owl. Tlheme
pictures were so well done that she
found a purebaser for the three, wiho
gave her ae'hadred francs for them-
a senall fortune to her youthful linagc-
Igation. These pet antmala were re-

which she painted and sold, on canvas,
fifty times.
All this while the young schoolgirl
was developing Into the young woman.
and in every picture she painted, al-
ways from life, some decided Improve-
ment was manifest over her previous
efforts. She loved her self-imposed
task, and followed it so closely, first In
the minutest observation of her sub-
jects, and then in the patient detail
of reproducing it, that she could not
fall of success.
And thus the mischievous little girl
who had been locked up in the school
cellar to punish her for her roguery and
disregard of all rules of propriety, had
so improved in her chosen prgoession

driven through the streets to a public

Tha atreit Woe 'densely packed wit

accorded the president was nothing
short of a continuous ovation.
After delivering his speech the pres-

the Oriental hotel, tendered by toe
citizens of Dallas.
His train 'eft for Waco, Austin and
Ban Antonio at 5:40 o'clock Thurs-

When the president awoke Wed-

were in attendance, all bent on see-

the Indian Territory before noon. At
Vinlta a short stop was made, and
the president briefly addressed a large
crowd. When Muskogee was reaoh-

person perched In a tree cried:
"Hello, old pal, we are with you."
A stand draped In the national Vol-

loud acclaim of the people and made
a brief address. His subject was
"Statehood," and enthusiastic ap-

Brief speeches were also made at

Baggage Master Under Charges.
The arrest of Gus Emanuel, white,
of Jacksonville, a baggage master on
the Florida East Coast railway, which
was made at Miami, and the arrest of
another baggage master of the same
road at St. Augustine, charging them
with grand larceny from trunks whilo
in transit between Jacksonville and
MJami, has caused a great stir in
railroad circles.
During the tourist season on the
Sast Coast numerous complaints were
made to the Florida East Coast .of-
fices of baggage robberies. The au-
thorities at once employed Pinkerton
detectives, who have been at work
on the case all during the season.
HWhen the authorities in Jacksonville
were notified of the arrest at Miami
of Emanuel they at once secured a
search warrant.
In Emanuel's trunk they found
about $2.000 worth of beautiful jewel-
ry, elegant imported shawls, fine silk
underwear, gloves, silk dresses and,
In fact, everything imaginable, all of
great value.
Sheriff Pickett was seen In regard
to the alleged robbery, and stated
that so far about $4,.00 worth of dia-
