To the People of Florida Greeting:
! The undersigned confesses to hav-
ing had an ambi .ion to become gov- J
; ernor of Florida. He nursed this am-'
I bit ion for political, economic, as well!
j as personal reasons. Having been
thrown upon the cold charity of the'
j world in infancy and fighting the bat-j
tie of life without prestige in the face
i of poverty and all that it implies, and
finally rounding out a well spent life!
in the chief executive office of the
; state of his nativity, he conceived that j
it would be an object lesson that
i
j would reflect in a marked degree the j
! beautv and grandeur of our democrat
ic institutions. It would, at least,
nave filled to overflowing the cup of
his earthly aspirations.
Then, too, it is the duty one owes
to himself and to his family to occu occupy
py occupy stations of honor and responsibil responsibility
ity responsibility if he feels that he can satisfac satisfactorily
torily satisfactorily and conscientiously perform
the duties that they impose.
1 hen, too, tne executive office
clothes its occupant with an influence
that the average citizen does not pos possess,
sess, possess, although his utterances on mat matters
ters matters of grave public concern may be
as eloquently and forcibly expressed
or even more so.
Great changes are in process of ev evolution

cost of living presses itself upon the
attention of all classes of our citizens.
Many students of political economy be believe
lieve believe that these conditions are brought
about through the instrumentalities of
our unjust tariff laws. Some go so
far as to denounce the tariff as a ro'o-
bery. I belong to that school. I be believe
lieve believe it to-be a pandora box of evil.
Some years ago the present excel excellent

chusetts, Massachusetts, Mr. Eugene Foss, was a re republican

Being a large merchant and manufac manufacturer

him to believe that the interests cf

gave to the study of the question the
more his eyes were opened to the in injustice

He became in turn a democratic con congressman,

I think that one should go into the j

untrammeled. More than office, with j
its honors and emoluments, is one's j
reputation, and he should euard it ;.a
he would his very life. The smallest
instrument may deprive him of the!
latter and the wagging of evil tongues j
of the former. A public officer should
be far removed from the grounds of j
suspicion. j
i
I can but be profoundly grateful to j
the newspapers of the state, with j
here and there an exception, for the'
very cordial and enthusiastic manner :
in which they coupled my name with j
this high office. j
I waited long and patiently to see
if there was anything genuine behind
this movement, except the love and ;
esteem of my confreres of the press,
and a few strong, warm and loyal
friends outside the newspaper profes-;
sion. 1
I confess to a keen disappointment, j
None of my distinguished political I
friends, whose name's are legion, for ;
whom I tore the shirt off my back
and made my throat sore hurrahing;
in their behalf when they were candi-,
dates for office, have tumbled over
themselves so far as I have heard in
their eagerness to have me-become!
governor bf Florida, tin the contrary.!
so far as my candidacy is concerned, j
they have been as mute as the eternal ;
hills.
In this connection I am reminded
of, and cannot refrain from incorpor-
ating, an extract from Horace Gree-,
ley's famous letter to William H.
i
Seward, when the latter gentleman
was made governor of New York
largely inrougn tne lnuuence oi tne
potential pen of the Tribune editor.
Mr. Greeley said:

, that the late Governor Broward was
an enthusiast on Everglades drainage

bent every energy stored up in his
powerful person and used every means

governor since reconstruction days.

pushing the Everglades project. lie

project for the good of all the people.
After the defeat of the drainage
amendment in the general election of
1H08. Broward made a special trip to
Washington for the purpose of getting
rid of the chief argument against his
project that was used, and successfully
used, to defeat him in his campaign for
the adoption of the drainage amend amendment.

data that Broward 'had collected dur

ing working at drainage, and became Intimately
acquainted with the project from Its
inception through the various stages
to its development up to that partic

Major Wright gathered his party,
went to the Everglades and spent all
the time necessary for him to make as
complete and accurate survey of the
'glades to enable him to determine the
practicability, feasibility and benefits
of drainage and reclamation. He came
through Tallahassee on his way from
the 'glades to Washington after he had
made his survey. He went over the

Mr. Harris has doubtless chosen
wisely. The Star would have taken
great pleasure in supporting him,
knows he would have made a good

elected. HI election would have been
more of an honor to his home town

would not be worth the candle.

THE REAL THING
IX
COUNTY FAIRS
That is what Claude LEngle in the
last issue of Dixie calls the Marion
County Fair, and he goes on to speak
of it as follows:
Every time I go to Ocala, I find it
harder to tear myself "away. I have
been to Ocala so many times and have
had this same difficulty come up that
I have seriously questioned the judg
ment of my parents in not selecting
Ocala as the place for me to be born
in, so that I could have grown up with
the town and with the people and
have been (perhaps) numbered among
the live, enterprising, hospitable
hustling Ocalans who make you feel
no matter how far you might have
traveled to get there that you have
realfy arrived home when you do get
there.
Ocala is one of the towns that dem
onstrates the resiliency which, as ev
erybody knows, is ability to come
back of Florida communities of the
right sort.
Looking at Ocala now no one would
believe that the big freeze busted i
whole lot of people and that the burst
ing of the phosphate bubble made ;
cleaning up of those who had froze
out the freeze for business is boom
ing, the people are nice and optimistic
and contentment, peace, and prosper
ity and plenty hit you right in the
eye and lodge in your mind as soon as
you-get In sight of the court house
square.
I was there last week while the fair
was on. I was at the fair last year,
and the year before that, and the year
before that skipping two. Each time
I have seen the Ocala fair It has look
ed as big, but when you cut into time
No country can raise more stuff and
bigger stuff and better stuff than Ma
rlon county, and -those fellows who
are behind the Marion county fai
know how to get the stuff on exhibi
tion. Everything that is good to eat
and drink and wear can be dug out of
Marion county soil. I never did see
sugar cane so long and so big around
as it is in Marion county, except some
specimens that Hamilton Disston

John Robertson, why, there's John

There were close on to five thousand
people at the fair grounds when I was

that you can get to from Ocala than
any other place I know of In the

roads leading straight to the court

come from all parts around whenever
there Is anything doing in Ocala, and
the Ocala people make them glad they

and the holders of lyceum tickets and
the public generally should make a
note of the elate.
The young men in charge of the A
C. L. passenger station are an unusual
ly truthful, set of railroaders. Sunday,
when rso. 40 was held up for half a
day by a wreck near Tampa, they ad
mitted, the first dash out of the box
that the trai:i was five hours and forty
minutes late. As a matter of fact it
was less than seven hours behind time
and that was unprecedentedly close to
the truth for a railroad man to come in
a case of the kind. One time, consid
erably back nearer the flood than now
the writer was waiting for a train at a
station of the old F. R. & N., later the
F. C. & P. find now the Seaboard. The
train -was as usual behind time and he
asked the agent how much of a late
ness it had. The agent told him just
an hour, and the writer didn't know
any better than to halfway believe him
An hour and a half later, not seeing
any train, he repeated his query, and
received the same answer. This kept
up all the afternoon, and about dark
the headlight of the train, six hours
late, came into sight about three miles
away. "See here," said the writer,
"will you kinSly tell me why in Hali
fax you didn't tell me this blankdash blankdash-ed
ed blankdash-ed train was a week late in the first
place?" "Well," said the agent, "I am
like the merciful man." "You most cer certainly
tainly certainly disresemble ariy merciful man
I ever saw, and while that slightly ac accelerated
celerated accelerated funeral procession creeps
over the next two miles, I would like
for you to prove your claim to the sim
ilarity." "Well, the merciful man had
a dog, and to be in the fashion decid decided
ed decided to cut his tail off. But he was so
tenderhearted that he couldn't bear to
hurt the dog so much as to cut it all
off at once, so he cut a little bit off
every day till it attained the proper
shortness."
One of the greatest wastes of time,
energy and material in this and thou thousands
sands thousands of other cities is the practice of
keeping the stores open late Saturday
evening. Most of the trading is over
by 8 o'clock, and all of it could and
should be, but the stores remain open
hours longer, tiring the already
wearied clerks to the very limit of
their endurance and wasting thousands
of dollars In electric lights and gas. It
seems to the Star that it would be a
wise move on the part of the leading
business men to form an agreement to
close their stores at 8 o'clock or at
least 9, every Saturday evening. If
they kept the compact, they would lose
no trade and would save small for fortunes
tunes fortunes on their illuminating bills, not
to speak of the weariness to them themselves
selves themselves and clerks. The writer is around
the business section every Saturday
nlght and he knows that the average
business house doesn't do business
enough after 9 o'clock to pay for the
electricity, gas or oil it burns, but each
one keeps open because the others do.
This Is one Instance in which a little
altruistic cooperation would pay.
