Washington, Sept. 8 Unless the
Navy Department comes to to the res
cue of theFloridians, the military oosts
at Key West barracks and at Fort Tay
lor -probably will be abandoned. This,
following the practical closing of the
Pensacols navy yard, will leave very
littla of the United States military navy
establishment on the peninsula.
Brigadier Coneral A. L. Mills, com
manding the Department of the Gulf,
has pointed out to the War Department
thab the principal value of K;y .WeBt
barracks and Fort Tayloe seems to be
foe the protection of the naval base a.
Key West, which has not been of much
value since the acquisition of Port) Ri
co and a naval base at txiiantanumo,
General Mills said that at the annual
inspection of the posts the question s
gain as to wheather their . importance
warranted their continuance. ' It was
alleged that they were not large enough
to use as a base for tha assembling of
troops awaiting transportation to Gull
p inta. The water supply was inade
quate and bad, and the railroad connec
tions across the keys could be easil; de
stroyed. Fcrt Taylor's guns could not
prevent the bombardment of Key WeBt
and serious doubt hid been cast upon
the safoty-of the anchorages by the de
structive hurricanes of 1909 and 2910.
Therefore, G.ner il Mills suggested that
the Navy Department be sounded to
ltarn it if wished to remain Key West
a a naval base, and if not, the post
should be abandoned.

The one woman out of the twenty
three who was game did jury duty for
three days. She said frankly she need
ed the pay that a juror receives. She
was excused because the court found
it inconvenient to lock her up with her
eleven male colleagues.'
The woman jury system has been in

nevertheless. Out in the country the

it. The blue faced monkeys which are
used in this set are a great specimen

Costly Funeral Car Demolished By At
lantic Coast Line Train.
The negligence of one of the Atlojl
tic Coast Line Railway Company's shift
ing crews caused a 1530 funeral ear
which had been shipped to Mr. J, K
Willis in this city to be almost complete
The car was ordered by Mr. Willis
several weeks ago but not until yester
day morning did it arrive in the city,
Mr. Willis telephoned to the office of
the Atlant ic Coast Line Company and
asked. that the car in which the vehicle
was located be placed on a siding where
it could be removed. The agent in
formed him that. the car would be reariy
for bim at 3 o'clock yesterday after
noon. At that hour Mr. Willis and hU
son, Mr. Albert Willis, went to the de
pot to unload it. The vehicle had been
partially removed from the car when a
string of cars, which had been shumted
off on the side tract, struck the ear
containing the funeral car and it was
thrown out of the door, and so badly
damaged that Mr, Willis refused to ac
cept it. "
The vehicle weighed about 2000
pounds and was a beauty in every re
spectandit is indeed a pity that the
crew 'did not use more fort thought
than to thuat off a string of ears ontr

Ohio. Sept 11 Governor
Harmon's extermination of graft and
grafters and his fight' for laws bene
ficial to the people have won for him

Assemblyman Joseph j. Greeves, one
of Ohio's leading progressive'Demucrats
an old political' lieutenant of the late
Tom L. Johnson, ex-mayor of Cleve- -
land, and former ardent Bryan support- -
er, in a recent interview with a Syra
cuse N. Y. Herald representative, was
quoted as saying;
''Governor Harmon is the biggest
man the Democratic party has seen io :
generation. I, make no exceptions
ters of Bryan that he had in Ohio each
lime he was fa candidate.' Ohio has
turned out a crop of statesmen that
have been shining lights in public life
McKinley, Taft, Burton.Hanna, Forak
er and Tom Johnson representing dif
ferent types of politicans, but not one
of them was ever as near or as dear to
the people as Governor Harmon.
'His administration will go on record
being responsible for a greater .
iraount of constructive legihlation than
any other governor Ohio ever had, la
these days of political ume-it, it is a
hard matter to be a progressive with
out frightening the conservative of dis
turbing the business element, On tha
other hand, if a man is conservative he
is also set down as a reactionary. A
man who is able to strike a happy med-
um between the two is an extraordi

he is mjre popular than be ever was.
Governor Harmon is not a candidate
for president in the sense that ' be is
seeking the sffice. The ancient tradi
tion tbat the office should seek the man
in good enough for him. aud he goes
iloaa governing Ohio in a manner that
is envied by the governors of half tha

concern, but' of course, be will accept
