Its the Star's opinion that if our
people would get in touch with the
railroad officials, the Atlantic Coast
Line could be induced to take up its
tracks thru town and build a line par paralleling
alleling paralleling the Seaboard to the vicinity
of its lime-kiln switch, which could be
made the main line. If this was done,
the union station could be located at
the Exposition street crossing, which
would be a very much better place
than the location selected.
This location would be for all time,
while if the station is built at the rail railroad
road railroad crossing will sooner or later
have to be moved.
As for the work helping business,
it would help some, but not as much
as most people expect. The railroads
would send their own men here to do
the work, and ship in most of their
material. What money they would
turn loose in the town would hardly
be noticed, and would certainly not
pay us for putting such an important
public structure in such an out-of-the-way
and ugly location. ...
As the Star has already said, Wed Wednesday

formal informal one, and does not bind any offi offi-.

work to go on, and the station located
at the crossing, will have just as
much weight ,with the railroad com commission

It is impossible in a democracy to
do anything without a great deal of

writes of the economic situation:
"Unfortunately there is no prospect

harvest has been good.. We dread the

"Until now our country population

but what is to become of us" during
the approaching winter in spite of all
the heroic sacrifices we have made?
During the past year teh prices of all
the necessaries of life have doubled

M EN DEN II A LL'S CONFESSION
In the following, it seems to the
Star, the St. Petersburg Independent
tells the truth without fear or favor:
Mendenhall says the St. Petersburg
papers have never given him a square
deal and his attorneys declare that no
man accused of crime has ever been
worse treated. One of the lawyers
for the defense even went so far as to
refer to the newspapers as "hyenas."
The trouble with the press was
that it did not rush to the defense of
Mendenhall as soon as he was arrest arrested,
ed, arrested, and create a public sentiment fav
orable to him. There is no question
that Mendenhall was tried and con convicted
victed convicted in the public mind in a few
days after his arrest. The public has
all along believed Mendenhall guilty.
The newspapers did not create that
opinion; the newspapers merely gave
what facts could be obtained and as
!;hey could get nothing from the de defendant
fendant defendant all that was published was
against the accused.
But nothing that was published was
as dangerous J;o Mendenhall as Men
denhall's own story of what happen happened
ed happened on that lonely road. No wonder he
did not tell it sooner. He might never
have lived to be tried had he told,
when first arrested, what he said on
the witness stand last Saturday. The
'eeling against Mendenhall, already
strong, is greatly more intense since
the public heard his version of what
happened in that murder car. -On
that statement alone, if nothing else
had been proved, the jury might have
found him guilty of murder and given
him the death penalty. One wonders
at the audacity of a man who asks
the public to withhold judgment until
he has had a chance to present his
side of the case and then goes on the
stand and tells a story like that he
related to the jury.
Why the jury, believing him guilty
of the murder of Miss Eliot, saw fit
to commend him to the mercy of the
court will always be a mystery to the
public. The only reason that one can
imagine is that one or more jurors
were opposed to the death penalty
where the defendant denied the actual
killing. It may have been this that
actuated those who held out for mercy
and a life sentence, so that in cae it
should develop, at a later date, that
Mendenhall'.? tale was true the accus accused
ed accused man could be released.
But if Mendenhall committed the
crime, a dastardly and vicious mur-
der of two unprotected women, one of j
whom had been wronged by the slay-j
er, certainly he deserved to die. Here j
is Tobin, a poor brute of a nero of j
low order of intelligence and but little ;
removed from the jungle, who al.-o ;
committed a terrible crime. He is to
, hane by the neck until dead and a
mob stands ready to see that the
sentence is carried out if the law
should let him slip. He deserves it.
But so does Mendenhall, assuming
that he is guilty as a jury of his peers
said he is. His crime was
that it i

Editor Star: Why should we .1? ai
city bond ourselves for a lare amount ;
of money for the purpose of bettering;
our conditions and making our little :
city more attractive and at the same j
time allow the railroad companies, Ly ;
their want of progress and public j
spirit, counteract to a large extent,!
what we are making great sacrifice?;
Why should we pay our hard earn
ed money to advertise Ocala and Mar-
ion county, as we have in the lu:-t two j
years, then allow these companies, by
their smoky, old dilapidated depots j
and other unfavorable conditions, ;
make our advertising of no avail? I
If we should succeed in petting a j
prospective investor here, and he 1
should land at the S. A. L. depot and
00k that old shack over, his first im
pulse would be to take the next train
out of town. Now, a great many of
us are ready to run a working man
out of the city if he knocks and
curses Ocala because he cannot get
work to support his family, yet some
of us are willing for these old depots
to stand here, knocking Ocala day
and night. Why should we go ahead
uilding sidewalks and paving streets
and compelling our citizens to meet
these expenses if we want the money.
Why, they will tell us to lorr6w it,
for the public good demands that
these improvements shall be made.
Yet when a bunch of railroad men
come along and ask to te granted
more time in which to make im improvements
provements improvements which should have been
made five years ago, some of us are
so sympathetic that we are willing to
grant the request. Poor railroad com companies!
panies! companies! They deserve our sympathy,
but our own people who have not
made a dollar in two years must come
across with the dough.
Now, gentlemen, I confess that I
am unable to figure out the justice in
these proceedings. If you will show
me one business firm in or near Ocala
whose business has not fallen off from
25 to 50 in the last year, I will
show you one hundred who have suf
fered this much and more. Yet we
expect our own people to meet their
obligations and keep up with the
spirit of progress. Should we require
less of these railroads companies? I
certainly think not.
From my standpoint it is an im
position for these railroad companies
to ask the people of Ocala to endorse
the plea of hard times they expect to
make before the railroad commission.
Surely, anyone who has lived in this
section of the country as I have for
twenty-five years or more has learn
ed that the railroad companies never
do anything for us that they are not
forced to do, and their plea of hard
times is nothing but their same old
story of getting everything they can

Anyono who attended that Rail- j
ro;:d Man's Meeting" here on last j
Ycl:;ecdnv night will remember that 1
they admitted that material and labor
va now. cheap and from that stand standpoint
point standpoint it was a good time to build.
They also said that the building of
this dejot would le financed by the
sale of bonds and that the bond mar market
ket market was in good shape, and they were
optimistic and expected business to be
good in a .hort time.
Every bu5ine?s man knows that the
time to make improvements is while
lu-ine is ofT and material and la labor
bor labor are cheap. If a merchant was
going to build an addition to his store storeroom
room storeroom he would never undertake it at a
time when business was rushing. It
a sawmill man was going to improve
his plant he would never undertake it
at a time when he had more orders
than he could fill, instead he would
make such improvements at a time
when business was ofT. The more I
think over the excuse that these men
offer for postponing the building of
this depot, the clearer I can see that
they have no logical reason for it at
all. but the hard time plea is only an
excuse and when that one is worked
for nil it is worth they will have an another
other another one ready, and the whole truth
of the business is this, they are not
going to build that depot at all if
they can get out" of it, and unless we
all pull together and get right in be
hind this proposition, another five
years will roll around and we will
have the same old depots.
Yours for a new union station,
