Acquited Themselves Nicely -

Very flarmonious

Meeting g.
As per previous atiumoitcetnent in these
columns there was a political speaking
here last night, The speakers were Dr.
J. Lj Kelley, Profs. J. L. Kellum and
C. Geop M. Lynch in .the order nained-
anTf they. addressed a large crowd of
ladies and gentlemen at thie court house
SThe meeting was presided over by lion.
J. M. Rivers iA chairtuma, and the speak-
ers, all of whom are candidates for
-couutty superintendent of public instruc-
tion,, acquitted themselves nicely, and
caused many of their hearers to wish they
could vote for then all.
]each candidate outlined what he 8aid
would be his policy if elected. Dr. Kel-
ley showed something of the present con-
ditiomnof the public school affairs in the
county front. a financial point of view'
. how much greater the. school debt was
when he came on the board last Septeut-
o. r thWan it was when he went off of 'It
only a, few years before, submitted plans
for paying the debt, etc.
The other candidates could claim ino
experience in school matters except as
teachers, but having been successful
teachers, and having successfully man-
aged their own affairs they thought
themselves as well qualified to fill the
position sought as was their senior op-
ponent. "
The meeting was harmtonious, the
speakers-were listened to with the inmost
perfect attention, and all were literally

Dear Friends
We will, within the next few days,
send out both by mail and collector, a
number of statements, showing when
some subscriptions to the Star expired,
and when others will expire. We trust
our fnends will renew their sub-
seriptions and pay promptly. Do not
send our collector away empty-handed,
or treat our notice by mail with silence.
On the a8th of the present month, the
Star wall have entered upon the second
year of its existence, so it ought to be
plain to those who paid for the Star a
year In advance when we first commenced
its piblieitlon, that they should.pow get
ready to renew their suascription, and
those who hare been getting the paper
from the first and have paid nothing,
aboso certainly be .getting ready to

ANOt)rl ii CR LCKER "
fIv-'s His Opinion of' -iIrrent As-
pirants for Office.
S -I'awthortie, Pln., April o
edlitor-Star: I was pleased to read in
the Star of yesterday that long letter
from "Cracker Voter,"' at Hope, In most
things I'agree with' "Cracker Voter'. per-
fectly, but I can't quite agree to all of,
his notions. I cail enmlorse every good
thing he. said about the Star, and could
a'Id more if it were'necessary, I agree
-ith him that this is a political year, and
that in the vicinlityof Hope there is much
farming going on, etc., anid I agree with
.lin, also, when lie declares that. "we
crackers are not going to go wild over
the candidates." I agree with him when
lie says we wait to keep posted about the
candidates, asnd to know something about
their fitness for the office. I agree.with
him that "Our Ho0b" is not the mtan mfor
governor ofr Flrida, but "I don't agree
that Broward i-. a better iniai for tlhe
placee than Jlro6vni is. I do believe how-
ever, that the- .race for governor is be-
tween Brown aond froward.
T agree mitlh liiiu when hid says that .the
coiity cA1ndidates have not paid much
attention to thle East Lu nl, but I can not
agree with everythiIng he says about waho
are the leading camn4datcs. lie
says tor Lhe .Legislature he is for Tenchl
and Rosborotlgh. They are. good men,
but I wound 'ike to know. what is the
matter iaith Tillmiiai and Hilleary.
"Cracker. Voter" thinks we, casi't get
along witihoni. Wash Fennell for sheriff,
and I heartily .agree with hitm on this
p0oiut, though we hate terribly to see two
such iren as Hague and. Willard "beaten.
We have no fight to make on his idea of
who is the best man for county -commlis-
sioner. Weinmay possibly vote together
there. We agree with him that Stockton
and I-.t is are the inen- for the places they
want, andl Dell miiaa .possibly lead for
clerk of the court, but if he does Samt
Wienges will certainly be. mighty close
beltlnd iimit. Iloth are good mneli, and
would make good clerks, anild we are
sorry that botll of then can't be elected.
"Cracker Voter" has it right about
cotluty superintendents; it will be be.
tween Keliey and K elimi, and thie uir-
tance between thict will be very short

Battleship Petropavlovsk -Not
Destroyed by Accident


Japanese Assert That Trap Was Laid
and Russlans praoticalfy Ad'
mit That Disaster Was
No Acoldent.

An Associated Press dispatch says:
No further detalls.have been rece ed
in St. Petersburg of the latest bom-
bardment of Port Arthur, except that
It was practically without results so
far as injury to the ships or fortifica.
tons is concerned. The loss of life
was inaignificant. The mystery of the
sinking of the battle ship Petropav-
lobsk has not beed cleared up.
That she touched a mine placed by
Japanese torpedo boals 'during the
night Is not officially admitted, but
there Is a growing disposition in unoffl-
clal quarters to accept this as possi-
bly being the true explanation. That
the mine was laid by a ruse of the
Japanese Is generally believed, al-
ijough some speculation Is Ilndjlged
In. which may almost bo described as
For example, the possibility of the
Introduction of an Infernal machine
Ir.to tho coal bunkers Is advanced as
an explanation of the explosion which
undoubtedly occurred on board !the
battle ship.
The only thing affirmed with abso-
lute certainty Is that It was not a Jap-
anese shell, nas no fighting was In prog-

Decoyed Russian Ships.
Advices from Toklo state that the
Japanese are elated oter the successes
they have met at Port Arthur. They
8as also proud of the achievement of
Vice Admiral Togo. particularly of his
now strategy in countermining the ene.
my's harbor and decoying them across
this field of mines to an equally dan-
gerous flank attack.
The success of the system of plac-
ing deadly counter mines Is due large-
ly to a series of careful observations
made bY the Japanese during their
previous attacks on Port Arthur The
Japanese saw 'he Russian fleet leave
the harbor and return to it several
times, and they discovered that the
Russian warships followed an Identical
course every time they came out or
went in, evidently for the purpose of
avoiding their own mines. The Jap.
an10so took hearings on this course.

Provided For-in Bill Passed
By the House.


Demoorate Denounee the Measure .
Wlickedly Partisan and Unjust
to Five Tribes of Civil.
Ixed Indians.

A Washingto A peolal says: A?.
IsT a debate extending through the en-
Lire session the house, Tuesday,
passed. the statehood bill, providing
(or Joint statehood of Oklahoma and
indian Territor under the name Ok-
lahoma and of Arizona and New Mex-
ico under the name Arigona.
In discuasillg the rule which had
been reported by the committee on
rules, providing tor the consideration
ir the bill. Mr. Williams, the minority
leader, declared that no republican
1tad any idea that the bill would be-
c ome a law at this session.
in opposing the rule, Mr. Moon, of
Tennessee, declared that the bill was
da Intensely wicked and partisan
measure, which, if passed, wouil vio-
late the plighted faith and honor of
ihe United States to the five civilized
tribes of Indians in the matter of
treaty obligations.
He Inquired of the republicans if
they were going to pasfi the bill in vi-
olation of their par(y pratform and of
treaty obligations. The territorial del-
egates in the house, lie maintained,
had protested "until the hour of coer-
cion by the republicans to meet po-
litlcal exigencies."
Denying that the republicans had
been guilty of bad faith, Mr. Dalzell
eald the bill would take Its course as
- party measure because it was re-
ported by the majority of the commit-
tee, submitted to a party caucus and
brought into the house pursuant to a
rule adopted by that caucus. He Jus-
tified the measure on the ground "that
we are endeavoring to sustain the rol-
ative power of the senate and house
of representatives in legislation."
The rule was adopted 150 to 11l1, a
strict party vote. The bill then
was taken UP. Speeches were made
for the bill by Messrs. Spalding. of
North Dakota; Sterling, of Illnois.
Curtis, of Kansas; McOulre. of Okla-
homa. and Rody, of New York, and
against the bill by Messrs Grosvenor,
of Ohio; Reid, of Arkansas; Lloyd.
of Missouri; Needliam, of California;
lussell, of Texas, and Wilson. of
The third reading' of the bill had
ieen directed by the speaker when
,no of the most amusing !ncldents of
the session occurred. Mr. Moon in-
quired If the third reading of the bill
was to be by title only. In the mills
of an elaborate decision the aepraker
turned to the parliamentarian. M.r.
Hinds. for further advice, and then
announced thttTble would resolve the
question In favor of the Indivllual
privilege of each member, aSi one
of whom could demand the rU.'-.g of
hoe bill.
Mr. Williams, the minority lea.lr.
Jorularly Inquired of the spealer if
his decision had been arrived at 'nfner
The speaker promptly replied that
It had been and he set the hotuse In
an uproar when he added:
'The skilled parliamentarian whn
lhas been at this desk for many tcars
can give the chair." and after a paiSe.
"unnd the gentleman from Mississippi
cards and spades, and then have a
fountain of parliamentary knowl..dgf
Inft." it was some moment before
the applause and lautgher which greet
ed this saly subsided. Mr Madder. of
Geor-ia. demanded the r-sseilng of
the b'll.t which was beg.n but later
he withdrew h'a request.

the house when he asked:

and iwe guess we should not blame
them for it.
It is funny to read about our
'friend Henry Chubb, of this city,
'scoring the Democrats" and "pre-
dieting success 'for the -Republican
Congressional ticket." Chubb is
one of the cleverest fellows out of

The 'Herald believed. for some
time that the Democrats of Florida
favored the nominatia(o of Mr.

Herald would therefore like to see
him the' nominee. At the same
time we. recognize the fact "that

come out only a short whilit Ihe'ori'

-Florida Democrats that Tul aferr,'
is an uncompromising Democrat,
and that Stockton has done great
service fto the Republican party?
Presumably because Mr. Stripling
and other Republicans of the State
and Nation want to turn Democrats
against Stockton because they (the
Republicans) can't use him. Dem-
.ocratic 'voters of Alachua county,
study the Stripling letter, and ask
yourselves the question. Why
do editors calling themselves Deim-
ocrats publish it?"

We would like to know how
many of the battle scarred or
reconstruction-seasoned Democrats
of Alachua county endorse the ac-
tion of the editor of our home
contemporary, in publishing in
Tuesday's issue of his paper a three-
column article from Joe Stripling,
a Republican politician of Jackson-
ville, aimed at and to injure John
N. C. Stockton, and to cause, if
possible, the election of Senator

We think death has removed the
only competitor Roosevelt had to
fear, and truly, we do not believe
the latter is fit for the high posi-
sion, nor did the people put him in
it It was done by an assassin, and
no man who ever reached the Pres-
idential chair by such means-or
by any other than election by the'
people-has occupied it a second
term.-Sardis (Miss.) Reporter.

Now that the Taliaferro press is
using the writings of Joe Itripling,
a white Republican politician ot
Jacksonville, to try go defeat Stock-
ton, may we not expect another
'.Joe," the negro Republican pol-
itician, Joe LIee, also of Jackson-
ville, to be used for the purpose?
Let the Standard Oil Company and

its hirelings trot out another "'Joe."
