d(lay. I measured up 11,S80 feet or 2%

miles of said hard road that is near-
ing completion. I measured the widlth
of the road in several places an.l
found the hard surface to be ten feet
and six inches wide. With a pick an
shovel 1 dug through the hard surface
at what I (cns!dered an average thick-
ness of the road in the center and
found it to be nine inches thick. The
stumps and rees are not all removed
from the out edges of the road yet. but
this is being rapidly done. The ma-
nmaterial used in the hardening of this
road is a p,,or grade of clay, which I
very much regret, but the ('cntracto),rs
tell me that after a thorough search.
nothing better is ,obtainable.

^ To the editor Ocala Banner:
I see am attack ftrom Mr. Alfred Ayer
a the Ant-8abk L-gue, which I
t eel shoMd be amwered, first, because
ach a attack Is uncalled for, and,
0e0d1, nearly everything he says :s

Mr. Ayer also replies to Mr. Beck
and britgs my name in and tries to
0iaJ It appear that Mr. Beck struck
hI M e from the registration books,
and that is the reason he did not vote
ia the wet and dry election. Mr. Ay-
fr did not give this as an excuse in
the camptign, but said in every
Meeck that he could not vote the dry
- ticket because the wet people helped
to buy his clothes. Mr. Beck told me
that he did not strike Mr. Ayer's name
of. and the book which Mr. Ayer
showed me did not show where his
- &ame was stricken off.
When Mr. Beck took hold of the
Iowbk he found that the names which
had been previously stricken had no
date showing when the names were
stricken. Mr. Beck dated every name
he struck. The county commission-
era went over all these names, went
through the registration books them-
selves and advertised every name
stricken by Mr. Beck. but they did not
advertise Mr. Ayers name. Mr. Ay-
er's name shows that it has been
stricken from the Ocala books at
some time in the past. but not since
Mr. Beck has had charge of the book..
And Mr. Ayer was registered all right
and could have voted.
The Anti-Saloon League did not
bring out or ask a single candidate .o
run for office. The Anti-Saloon Lea-
has a right to endorse any candi-
date it pleases, but did not endorse
Mr. Ayer's opponent. The Anti-Sa-
looma League is not a religious organi-
abon. but purely an organitlton for
oe sole purpose. and that is to elim-
Iate the saloons. Onie of the very
prindbles upon which it is founded i-
to endorse and work for men to fill the
oces of the government who are
pledged to prohibit in every legitimate
way the sale and manufacture of in-
toxicating liquors. The Anti-Saloon

S League has never claimed that 84s per
cent. of the white voters in Marion
county are dry. and Mr. Ayer cannot
prove this assertion. But I do believe.
as an individual, that between 60 and
70 per cent of the white voters of the
county are dry. and this was proven
'4 in the recent primary.
In the legislative race. where th?
lines were drawn sharpest, the three
candidates who received the hight-it
number of votes all declared them-!

To the Editor Ocala Banner:
Mr. J. S. BliRch, in a communica-
tion in the Star. in attacking Gilchrist,
says that there is a concentrated ef-
fort to do away with the primary sys-
tem, and that that horrid thing known
as the Times-Union is the author, con-
centrator, or ring leader, and that Gil-
christ is well known to favor conven-
tions. That there is such a concen-
trated effort is news to me, but very
welcome news, and I would like to
help the cause along, and join in an
effort to abolish state primaries at
least, if not county primaries. Mr.
Blitch has (perhaps unwittingly) fur-
nished most excellent reasons, and the
charge in the following paragraph, if
true, is enough to damn the primary
"The supporters of all candidates
agree there has never before, since re-
construction limes, been quite s3
much open and brazen corruption re-
sorted to by the supporteds of the
railroad candidates."
This has reference to the vote in
Duval county. He charges that th?
railroads exercised much more Influ-
ence that the saloons, and that the
East Coast Railway instructed its em-
plotyes to trade votes on local candi-
dates for votes for Gilchrist.
Could the convention system 'e
charged with anything worse than Mr.
Blitch has charged against the pri
mary system?
He calls attention to the fact that.
mn're than one-fourth of the votes
cast for Gilchrist came from Duval
and Hillsborough counties, "where
corrupt influence-s are so powerful.'"
In a state convention, could thee
two corruptly influenced counties fur-
nish more than one-fourth of the del-
gates? Certainly not.
Suppose a state convention was ap-
portioned on the vote for United
States senator in the last primary, one
delegate for each 100 votes cast, -t
would be composed of 534 delegate,;,
of which Hillsborough would have 50
and Duval 45, or less than 18 per cent.
a difference of over 7 per cent. in fa-
vor of conventions.
The bitterness exhibited in our local
press is enough to disgust anyone
with primaries. It is time to call :i
halt. W. W. CLYATT.

Mr. Blitch says that the railroads an I
the rum sellers are end-.av,)ring i\,
control the primary in the int-rest .4'
General Gilchrist.
Mr. Blitch says that the return ,,f
the first primary show that Mr. Gil-
christ received more than one-furtn
of his entire vote in HillNbrough anJi
Duval counties. He wants to know if
the voters of Florida are going t.)
stand idly by and see Tampa and Jack-
sonville dominate Florida politics. H11
says that when the saloon and corpor-
ation votes were not conc'ntratedl and
where corrupt influences were' not s4
powerful that Mr. Stockton received a
larger vote than did Mr. Gilchrist.
The figures, however, do not su.-
tain Mr. Blitch in his statement.
Take Mr. Blitch's own county, f.)r'
example. Levy Is a dry county. ,It
went for Mr. Stockton in the cam-
paign four year sago. In the recent
primary the vote stood: Fo)r Gilhhrlst,
416; for Stockton. L62.
It will be borne in mind also that
since the primary four y.,ars ago Mr.
Stockton has resided in Levy county,
a portion of the time andl did in .x-
tensive business there. Th, hgure,,
will also show that in Alaclimua. v hi'h
is a dry county, that Air. ;ilchrisrt'
vote was larger than Mr. Steeckton*'.
It was likewise larger in Kktr. Brad.
ford. Clay, Columbia, DeS >to,. ;lad.-
den. Jefferson. Lafayette. Lake L-eon.
Madison, Orange, Manatee, Putnam,.
Suwannee-all dry counties-but in I
the wet counties of Escambia, Ma-
rion. lonroe and Lee, Mr. Stockton
received a larger vote than Mr. Gil-
So it will be seen that all the wet
counties are not for Mr. Gilchrist. nor
are all the dry counties for Mr. Stock-
A large percentage of the dry vot,
however, is fo)r Mr. Stockton, but it Is
not because of Mr. Gilchrist's record
along this line is not every whit a-
good as that of his opponent, and a
man ought not to be slain in the house
of his friends. It is wrong, and good
people ought not to be a party to it.

It must be an awful sight to witness
the burning of a ship at sea-esp)ecial-
ly so if there are a number of human
beings on board.
The unfortunate passenger has but
two alternatives. One is to remain on
board and perish in the flames or
plunge overboard and go down in the
depths of the sea.
The last issue of the Jacksonville
Metropolis contains an account of the
burning of a ship at sea, and the
strange part of the account is that
the passing ship made no attempt to
rescue the unfortunate crew, and
really did not take interest enough in
the awful catastrophe to ascertain

ministration of the duties of the coun-
ty commissioner's office has met with
the approval and will receive the In-
dorsement of the electors of Marion
county, I therefore announce that my
name will appear on the ticket used
in the primary to be held May 19,
1908, as a candidate for a second
term. In the event of my nomination
and election I promise a faithful dis-
charge of all duties attending said of-
fice. Respectfully,
For Supervisor of Registration
To the Democratic Voters of Marion
I have been urged( by many friends
to become a candidate for supervisor
of registration, and have decided to
enter the race.
My record is well known. My offi-
cial acts while sheriff of the county
and my character as a citizen and
a democrat are probably known to
most of you.
I wish to emphasize the fact that if
you elect me to the office, the busi-
ness will be attended to by myself, in
person. Furthermore, nothing shall
be done in the office to favor any par-
ticular individual, party or faction,
but all shall receive absolutely Just
and impartial treatment.
While the salary of this office !s
very small, yet, under the law the su-
pervisor has great power, and it is of
the utmost importance to every citi-
zen that this power shall be admin-
istered with justice and with care for
the rights of all.
The people of this county have been
kind to me in times past, and this I
greatly appreciate. If elected I will
do what is right to all concerned.
