AN ANSWER TO MR. ANDERSON
In another place, our learned friend,
Mr. R. L. Anderson, asks if we are in
favor of the proposed amendment to
the city charter, which, up to the time
: Ocala contains 10,000 people, will en en-:
: en-: able the city government to make con-
tracts with its own officers.
Owing to the fact that the Star has
, been up against the present law, it is
: much in favor of having it changed.
Several years ago, the general man-
ager of the Star, in an unusual fit of
good humor, allowed himself to be
elected as member of the city council,
which position he held down for a
number of months which seemed v
great many to him. During that
time he put in an average of twenty
hours work a month for the city, for
which he received no pay except an
occasional cussing from some of his
fellow citizens. He could not, during
that space of period, do any city
printing, or charge for any city ad advertising

the spirit of a martyr and a patriot,
which those who knew him would
never have otherwise supposed he
But one day, unbeknown to him, and
all other members of the council, a
minor city official bought a wheelbar wheelbarrow

vegetable from a firm of which one

'the whole bunch of aldermen was ar ar-rested

them out. Then, to their great terror
and dismay they were held under bond
for months, with the view of a jail
sentence ever before their eyes, and
were finally yanked into court, tried
and found guilty, and if the judge had
not had a thousand times more sense

no wise responsible for.
The same thing' is liable to happen
again nny day in a city the size of
Ocala. Our people have for years fol fol-towed

leading-business men to act as mayor
and councilmen. With ten such busi-t

currences. occurrences. It is much more for the
convenience of the city than for any
revenue that may accrue to its officers.
The Star does not view the pros-J
pect of graft from this source with
any apprehension. We do not think
that any member of the council would
graft on the city, charge the city any
more for goods or work than he would
anybody else. There is not enough
profit in any city work to cause any
man of the class we usually elect to
office to strive for election or re-election
on account of what he may get
out of it. Election of mayor and
councilmen in Ocala has so far been
mostly a gentleman's game in which
the candidates have been out for the
fun and the honor. As long as the
people take a proper amount of inter inter-cstMn

MAY HAVE BEEN A WHITE MAN
The city police and sheriff's offi officers
cers officers have rounded up several negroes
suspected of the attack on Jean Scott
in the West End Monday night. There
is a strong suspicion, however, that
the attack was made by a white man,
maybe two. It is also believed that
the girl knows who her assailant is,
and tried to shield him by laying the
blame on a negro. It is tolerably well
established who all the white men in
the vicinity were, and there will
probably be some arrests or lively
getaways in the next day or two.
