THE ULTERIOR MOTIVE
- On two previous occasions, the Star
has;' with seeming ingratitude, called
attention to the ulterior motive that
seemed to project the nicely gotten up
press dispatches of Mr. Alvln G. Rob
erts of Jacksonville into the space of
the Florida country press, and at the
- risk of being considered tedious It de
sires to Inquire into the whenceness
of their which again.
The first of these elaborate com
munications that came the Star's way
were glowing descriptions of the Glid
den tour, interwoven wnn meir sinn
ing fabric were nice little puffs for a
certain make of automobile, and a
careful comparison of them with gen
uine press dispatches showed that. they
demn as news. As that particular
atito factory did not advertise with the
Star, and as the editor can write the
very be3t of special dispatches with
his scissors, most of Mr. Roberts gilt gilt-edged
edged gilt-edged communications found their re
posing place In the waste basket, tho
we did use some of the best with an
alacrity that gives us a slight pain in
our conscience as we write this.
Then came one a very good and
timely one In regard to vagrancy
which we used with approval. A little
later came one which in its guise of
nowa was a dirpft attack on the Dure
food laws of the state; this we called
attention to in a short article which
was reproduced with approval by some
uut in v 1 c luuvrciiucu c tvuicui
aries. We supposed that by so doing
we had put the Star on Mr. Roberts
blacklist, and Indeed for some time hi
elegant copy did not come this way
But, the other day, another of his
elaborate communications refreshed
our wearied eyes, and rewarded our
eager perusal with another lovely re
port of the good work being done in
the South In suppressing vagrancy.
Now, if there is one thing more
than ; another outside of actual crime
that the Star wants to see suppressed.
It Is Tagrancy. A man who can work
. and has no "honorable means of support
nicpnt work, and won't work, is not
much better than a thief, and general generally
ly generally does more barm than a thief. The
Star believes that all such, if- they
won't work for themselves, should be
compelled to work for the state, and it
Is quite sure if they were all put to
work the burden on those who work
now would be much lighter, and
equally sure that the list of crime
would be much shortened, for almost I
as surely as water finds Its level does
idleness, in our complex civilization
lead to theft and even to murder.
But the Star wants to see vagrancy
eliminated legally in response to
healthy public sentiment. It does not
want to see unfortunate men rounded
up and railroaded into worse than
slavery in order that some corpora corporation
tion corporation may obtain their work at a high
proflt to itself.
The Star has no spite against Mr.
Roberts,' but Jt thinks it very likely
that his elegant dispatches are written
at the behest of some organization
well able to' pay for them. It did not
question his booming the Cadillac car,
which is a splendid machine, but it
had a right to rent the vail he hung
over his attack on the pure food law,
and now it wants to know who is
paying for this crusade' against vagrancy-Some
of the newspapers of Florida
are notoriously mercenary, but most
of them are independent and outspok outspoken.

very often a nicely gotten up special
letter on some live subject appeals
most irresistibly to the hardworked
editor, and he prints it without read reading
ing reading It closely enough to discover the
"ulterior motive." Now, there is a
great difference between a determined
. attempt by the officers of the law,
backed by public., sentiment, to sup-
press vagrancy, and a manhunt by
-deputies, police and petty magistrates,
trying to amass fees by railroading
every man out of a job to the' mines
and camps, where his unpaid for work
will not only increase the illgotten
gains of his enslavers, but add to the
number of his fellow slaves by reduc reducing
ing reducing the number of paid-for jobs. There
is also a difference between honest ed editorial
itorial editorial opinion and elaborate special
letters that somebody must pay a good
price for having written and mailed.
In the Star's opinion, editorial utter utterance
ance utterance will lead to the diminution If not
thk entire elimination of vagrancy,
and the special letters, if they achieve
their object, will result in slavery.
The Star would be very glad to see
a concerted attack on vagrancy by
the independent press of the state
Such an attack is its duty and within
its province. It would, be an honest
performance of a public duty, because
it would be unpaid for. But the press
and the public may well scrutinize
very closely any literature that a paid
writer sends out free at a very evi evident
dent evident considerable expense to some somebody.

tive, motive, or In less elegant language, a
nigger In the woodpile.
It would be difficult to exaggerate
the horrors of the state of affairs that
could be created by an organized ef effort
fort effort to exploit vagrancy for proflt. If
successful, any unfortunate man, no
matter how honest and industrious,
would be liable to become the victim
of a slavery far worse than that
which caused our great civil war. The
incentive that such a system would
be to corrupt officials to multiply their
fees, and .. the power it would give
them over the weak, would be an evil

Most of the furniture was saved, but

the other property was partly covered
It was evident to all that had the
firemen been able to arrive a few min minutes
utes minutes sooner they would have won the
fight. Had they possessed an auto
truck, such as Is described in another
article, they could have saved the few
fatal minutes that enabled the fire to
get out of their control.
The services at this church on Sun

lesson and a business meeting. The
choir acquitted themselves splendidly,

to be suffering from too much Christ Christmas

would have done credit to a steam
hammer in a rolling mill, and both the
anthem and the beautiful solo of Miss
Mattie Williams' suffered badly.
However when the pastor commenc

was shut down and the preacher could
be heard. The sermon was along the
same line as previous discourses on
the necessity of a new church. Among
other things the pastor said that dur
ing the three months he had been here
he had visited about all of his con congregation

and he believed that if the church and

In speaking of Sunday school teach
ers he said that theirs was a man s
work or a woman's work and not the
work of a. child; that a teacher who
did not put the whole of their ability
into the work would make an abject
failure of it. The essentials of
church building should be a large au

ONE MONTH'S COST OF 14
PIECES OF AUTO APPARATUS
Birmingham, Ala. Chief A. V. Ben
nett of the fire department is delight
ed with the striking contrast between
the cost of maintenance for a month
of motor driven apparatus and horse
drawn-, apparatus as shown by an ex
pense report from the captains of the
different stations where motors are in
service. The expense on motors is one
quarter that of horse apparatus. The
14 pieces of motor driven apparatus,
comprising 13 fire stations, answered
144 alarms, practiced 30 hours, tra
versed 4,765 blocks, used 460 gallons
of gasoline, used 20 5-16 gallons lubri
eating oil, 8 pounds pressure grease,
changed two presto tanks, replaced 24
dry battery cells. Teplaced 1 spark
plug and 1 gas burner, at a grand
total cost of $63.72, an average of
about $4.50 for the upkeep of each
machine, and an average of less than
$5 for the cost of maintenance of each
station. This expense is insignificant
as compared with the cost of operating
horse drawn apparatus, because the
horse feed alone for the number of
horses required to operate- 14 horse
drawn machines is $450, barring all
accidents and horses becoming disa disabled
bled disabled from various causes. The proba probabilities
bilities probabilities are that more accidents will
occur with horse drawn apparatus
than with motor driven owing to the
fact that in the winter, when the de department
partment department is called upon to answer a
greater number of alarms than at any
other season of the year, the streets
are sometimes frozen so that horses
can hardly make a run without falling,
but the motor apparatus does not fail,
and will perform faithful service if
operated with the proper degree of
skill. Municipal Journal.

GOOD WORK OF
THE KING'S DAUGHTERS
The King's Daughters made many
hearts very happy for Christmas. All
day Saturday the ladies were working
at the residence of Mrs. C. Rhelnauer,
packing Immense baskets with every everything
thing everything that was good to eat and to
wear. It seemed that everyone in
town responded to the call for help in
thjs noble work. There were thirty
big clothes baskets packed to the
limit with Christmas dinners of fruit
cake, bread, canned goods, fruits,
candy, a six-pound roast in every bas basket
ket basket and many other good things to
eat; then there were all the clothes
that could be wished for. About seventy-five
children, as well as many of
the older folks, were given a happy
Christmas, and the King's Daughters
enjoyed It more than any one. Mrs.
D. M. Smith with her buggy and Mrs.
Rhelnauer, Mrs. Clyatt and Mrs.
KIrkland in their cars were busy all
the afternoon distributing the baskets.
Not only the poor people of Ocala
were remembered but baskets were
taken out to Zuber, Montague and
thru the Martel district. The baskets
were packed solid, which required
hard work as well as knowledge on
the part of those packing the baskets.
Baskets of dinner and fruit were also
taken to those who were not so much
in need but who would not have had
a Christmas dinner. Aside from the
generous donations of the people, there
was about $100 sent in from the var various
ious various churches, and many private gifts.
This has undoubtedly been the great greatest

have ever had in Ocala.

Young volunteered, that if they were
not caught, they might circle around
