Mr. Editor, the following taken
from the legislative journals and the

your readers to locate part of the
blame of this terrible holocaust.
Mr. Amos says that no effort has
been made toward keeping the expen
ditures for certain things;, such as
food, clothing, etc., separate, so that
the cost of any one article would be
available or readily ascertained. A
considerable number of these bills
embraced numerous articles falling
under different heads, making, it im
practical to ascertain the actual cost
of certain expenditures. Also the
bills payable of this institution were
not posted on the books o: the super
intendent, some of them extending as
far back as September, 1912. It took

Here is how the legislature acted

Again, the committee report reads:

Part of Section 4, Chapter 6529,
reads as follows:
X "He (the superintendent) shall live

Mr. Editor, is there any negligence

THE PRESIDENTS MESSAGE
Woodrow Wilson's messages will be
reid more widely than 'those of any
other president. They ai-e shbrterby
75 per cent, and he says something in
every line. He confine; himself to
the great issues before the nation and
leaves details where they belong, with
cabinet and department officers.
'.The last message had more great
issues to meet than any other, and
the president has concisely but com comprehensively
prehensively comprehensively dealt with them. What
was of the most interest was military
and naval preparedness, a question
which has been brought most emphat emphatically
ically emphatically to the front by the European
war. ; f
Mr. Wilson says, in the first place,
that we are not unprepared. He did
not go into detail in this. He simply
said it, and went on. This was the
best thing he could do. He should
know and does know unless depart department
ment department officials have grossly deceived
him. To tell how we are prepared is
information that shouldn't be given
Mr. Wilson shows plainly that no
great increase will be made in the
army during his administration.; He
does not want the country to build
warships that may be obsolete be before
fore before they leave the shipyards. On
both these subjects, the president
shows sound sense, and we believe
meets the views of the country.
It is plain by what Mr. Wilson says
that he desires our citizensto organ organize
ize organize and train in large number for na national
tional national defense. He wants the gov gov-'ernment

take the necessary steps to see if the
"plan can be carried out. Personally
the Star doubts that the people will
go into any such movement until they
are driven into it. They will put it
off. until some great power makes an
offensive move; then they will make a
wholesale rush that will swamp the
government and cause them to be
butchered by thousands if war fol follows.
.Mr. Wilson's desire to impress the

The result j that "Full many a flower is born to

John Taylor says that people who
think he can't cut anything but ice

The Star is glad to be able to note
an improvement in the passenger
coaches used on trains No. 39 and 40
on the Jacksonville and St. Peters Petersburg
burg Petersburg run.
While these trains haven't been
given new cars, those in use have
been put thru the shops and are now
in better condition than they have
been for a number of years. When
the trains start out on their runs, in
the morning the coaches are in pretfy
fair shape. -
Trains 39 and 40 do a heavy local
business. For several years they
have had very shabby coaches. The
present cars are not palatial, but they
are a great improvement.
It has seemed to the Star that the
Coast Line, under Superintendent
Brand, is making greater efforts to
please its local patrons than it did
before that gentleman came on deck.
As for the division superintendent,
Mr. McArthur, he always does the
best he can with the resources at his
disposal. The Star is always better

to kick at neglect.

In the fourth ward, Mr. G. Aj Nash

term, Mr. F. G. B. Weihe received 40
votes. Mr. Jno. T; Moore also re received
ceived received 40, but his name being written
on the tickets 29 votes were cast for
J. T. Moore and ,11 for J. Moore, so
it will take the official count to decide'
which of them is elected. Mr. W. A.
Robertson received 9 votes.
Mr. Moore and his friends think they
did very well, considering the short
notice of his; candidacy. Some votes,
they say, on account of improper
marking, were' thrown out; so they
are confident of winning, if another
contest is held for hat ward.
On the other hand, it is said that
some of the votes for Mr. Moore were
cast for the' short term, which would
cause him to lose. The matter can't
be decided till the council meets next

tion. proposition. The Florida Power Company has
made an open and aboveboard and
very fair business proposition. It has
a right to make the proposition, and
the people of yOcala have a right to
an opportunity to consider it.
The Star stands right where it al always
ways always has stood on municipal owner ownership,
ship, ownership, and doesn't think it is going to
make any change. It has, however,
always desired to impress on the peo
ple that they can't make a success out
of public ownership unless they give
it close and interested attention. They
must study every matter connected
with it and decide what they want
. done, and then see that it is done.

to consider the Camps' proposition

Commenting on this, the Times
"It seems to us that there are al always
ways always two sides to a question. The
people have the right to be heard
where their interests are at. stake.
Suppose several of these communities
had been able to show to the railroad
commission that the business given
the railroad on these self-same trains
that the commissioners allowed to be
cut off was sufficient to pay the ex
pense of their operation ? While we
do not say that subh is the case in the
present instance, railways have been
known to state their own case in their
own way without sticking to the
straight line of truth, and they are
not alone in that habit. And the
Times wishes to call the attention of
the honorable members of the Florida
railroad commission to just-one more
fact that they seem to have overlook
ed, namely, that the board is the ser servant
vant servant of the people of Florida, or
should be, and it has no right to hear
only one side of a case where the peo people's
ple's people's interests are at stake."
The Star has no doubt that the
commission has acted right in this in instance,
stance, instance, and thinks it was an occasion
to act without delay. However, the
commission was very unlucky in the
utterance alluded to. It goes far to
support the prevailing opinion that a
corporation receives on simple de
mand the justice the people can hard
ly obtain by any means.

Men of the Mountains.
O the afternoon passed away, and
as It became late we entered
; great tracts of gloomy pine
woods A wind which had risen
with the evening moaned through
their tops and flung the dark waters
of innumerable little lakes against
their moss bordered shores.
I noticed that Puttick unslung his
rifle and laid it among the packs' upon
the buckboard beside, him. and when
I ever the road dipped to a more than
usually somber defile his eyes, quick
arid restless as those of some forest
animal, darted and peered into the
shadows The light of the sun was
fading when there occurred the one In Incident
cident Incident of our journey. It was not of
real importance, but 1 think it made
an impression on all of us. The road
alomx which we were driving came
( suddenly out Into an open space, and
here in front of a shack of the rough roughest
est roughest description a man was engaged In
cutting logs. As we passed be glanced
up at us. and his face was like that of
some medieval prisoner a tangle of
wild beard, a mass of grayish hair
and among it all a pair cf eyes which
seenied to glare forth hatred. There
was something ominous about the

while Puttick was on the eastern
boundary I thought I'd go up to Senlis

brook netted. 1 was making a tire. to
boil my kettle when a shot was tired
from the rocks up above, and the next
I knew was that 1 was hit pretty bad

on the hill above there is mostly rock.''
Such, then, was the story of our
coming to Kalmacks. and for the next
two or three days we spent our time
fishing in the streams, the only move
in the direction of the main object of
our visit being that Joe. whom Linda

"I can't think of any."
"What about the sand?"
"The sand?" I repeated.
"Yes. haven't you noticed? got
Mr. Petersham to have two loads of

Impossible to come nigh the house
without leaving a clear trail. Buj the

rain enough to wash out tracks."
"Yes. they'll likely come."
But as it happened Joe was wrong.
I believe that his reasoning was cor
rectenough, and that it was the fear
of leaving such marks as would enable
us to gather something of their Iden
tity that kept the enemy from pinning
upon our door the letter which finally
arrived prosaically enough in a cheap
store envelope that bore the Priam
ville postmark. The contents of this
letter were as follows:
