THAT OPEN LETTER.
Senator Call has again addressed
an open letter to the people nf
Florida in which he announces
himself a candidate for re-election
to the United States senate. In
the address, which is in his usual
abusive language, he tries to show
how corrupt the people of this state
have become. He tells all of the
bad things he can think of, but
not one word of praise for our
fair state can we find in his letter.
Nothing but abuse. Mr. Call
needs a vacation for a few years
from public office, and his
friends (?) in this state will see to
it that he gets it. Such a friend (?)
to the people as Call is should not
be allowed to drag his life away in
office. Citrus County Chronicle.
Special to the Citizen.
Gainesville, Aug. 26.? Senator
Call's attack upon the editor of
the Baptist Witness, which was
published recently in the Ocala
Banner, has been the cause of
much comment in this city.
When the senator arrives here
in the fall to make his campaign
speech he will find that, far from
making friends for him, the letter
has proved very detrimental to his
The editor of the Baptist Wit Witness
ness Witness has as many friends in this
county as Senator Call, and they
do not approve the bitter attack
upon a gentleman whom they esteem.

This well managed road wvill not
be Jtft behind when it comes to
making passenger or freight rates,
and is 'always ready to give the
people a low rate when it is possi possible
ble possible to do so.
In this connection, let us say
'that while much has been and is
being said about exorbitant freight
rates,we have found the roads into
Ocala, and especially the Plant
System, make their charges as rea reasonable
sonable reasonable as we ought to expect.
If the "fruit and vegetable grow growers
ers growers will be more particular about
the commission merchants to
whom they ship, and see to it that
they get fair and honest returns
from the same,in our opinion there
will not' be so much talk about the
freight rates eating up the prices
received for their stuff.
Mr. Plant has been and is still
doing more to advertise and bring
settlers into our borders than any
man whom we can at present call
to mind, and we have it from good
authority that the officials' of that
road will always give special
freight rates when any quantity of
vegetab es are shipped if it is
within their power.
Let us see that the commission
merchants get all for our produce
that it should bring, and give us
fair returns, and we will soon see.

business in the sunny south, and
also that we are not robbed by the

Mexican Village concession to give
a representation of a bull fight,

lation relation to a genuine bull fight, that
a combat on the mimic stage bears
to a genuine battle.' I trust that
this will be entirely satisfactory."
We are heartily glad that the
exposition is to be closed on Sun Sundays,
days, Sundays, and that there is to be no
bull fight. We hope there will be
no "representation of a bull fiht."
It was a shame on the American
people that the Columbian Expo Exposition
sition Exposition was opened oh Sundays. It
kept away many thousands of the
best people who would otherwise
have gone, and greatly lessened
the interest of multitudes who did
go. It was a small satisfaction
that the courts decided, when it
-was too late tor the decision to
bave any practical effect, that the
Sunday opening of the World's
Fair was illegal.
There is no reason why everybody,
and especially every friend of the
South, should not be active and
earnest in making the Cotton
States and International Exposi Exposition
tion Exposition at Atlanta all that it ought to
be. There are many attractions,
and no drawbacks. Even those
who went to the World's Fair will
see that many improvements have
been made in two years. While to
those who did not go to the Chi Chicago
cago Chicago fair, we say this is our fair,
and now is our time. We expect
to go, and to tell our readers of the
various attractions presented at
Atlanta. We hope every one, who
can arrange to do so, will go. Let
the managers only say "no" to the
application of the Mexicans for a
"representation of a bull fight,"
and all will be well. Such a "rep "representation"
resentation" "representation" could have no good
effect; its whole tendency would
be towards demoralization. Wes Western
