common personal property or general
real estate. It collects the most of
this revenue from such sources that
in Florida pay but little taxes. The
Inheritance tax each year is much
more than the entire expense of our
state government, and the franchise
tax Is more than our yearly collection
for state purposes. Public utility cor corporations
porations corporations pay 65 per cent of the state
tax. Rhode Island, about three time3
as large as Marion county, pays taxes
on nearly three times as much prop
erty as the state of Florida. Its oyster
and shell fishermen pay $120,000 year

Gov. Gilchrist in his message to the
last legislature says the true value of
the property in this state subject to
taxation Is more than $1,000,000,000.
and less than $200,000,000 is assessed.
thereby showing there is much wealth
'.n this state that pays but little taxes.
The comptroller's report of 1911
says the total state taxes is more than
$2,000,000. while the county taxes is
more than $4,000,000. The collection
of $6,000,000 a year should be under
the direct supervision of some one or
board that could and would give this
subject their full time and attention.
The state constitution calls for an
equal and just assessment of prop

how equal and just the assessments in
the different counties have been: The
average assessment or person prop property

report of 1911 and TJIO, Is $38 per
head. In Escambia county it is $75
per head; In Marion county it is $44

in Tolk it is $93, while in Monroe it is
As to real estate, the average wealth
in Marlon county is $203; Levy, it is
$290; Lake it is $324. These three
counties join. In Jefferson it Is $138;
Jackson, $130; Suwannee, $144; La Lafayette,
fayette, Lafayette, $336. and In Taylor It is $398.
Some of these counties join. While in
the southern end of the state we find
nrevard is assessed ad $576 per head;
Dade pays taxes at the rate of $505
per head; Palm Beach $1418 per head
and Monroe $122. Is this an equal and
Just assessement of taxes?
Some of the large and wealthy coun counties
ties counties have their property listed at a
very low valuation so as to lessen their
state taxes, while the little and poor
counties must list their property much
higher so as to get enough revenue to
meet the expenses of the county. The

counties do. Is this Just? Is It honest?
The best solution of the state and

utility corporations, etc., taxes must
go to the state, the balance to the
counties. Then there must be a change
made In the assessment of our public
utility corporations, etc., to raise the
$2,000,000 needed for state purposes.
Can these changes be made with the

Mr. Grace Attorney Deelarea that
Grace Shot IIImelf Darlaa; a
Snaffle With IIU Wife
Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 2. Eugene H.
Grace was shot In a scuffle with his
wife in their room during a quarrel
over the sale of some of Mrs. Grace's
rroperty, according to Attorney
Branch, who outlined yesterday the
defense's case to the jury in the trial
of Mrs. Grace. He told the story with
Branch declared that Grace tried to
shoot his wife, after choking her, and
that during the scuffle which followed
the weapon discharged and the ball
entered his side.
"The state's theory that Grace was
shot during the night or early in the
morning is utterly untrue, and we will
prove that he was shot after 11 o'clock
in the morning; that he got up that
morning, wrote out a check and talk talked
ed talked over the telephone as late as 10
o'clock," declared Attorney Branch.
"It is ridiculous to say that Mrs.
Grace tried to get rid of him for his
money. She had given him between
$15,000 and $20,000 in a year's time
and he was going to Philadelphia to
s-ell her property to get money for
himself when the shooting occurred.
Grace wanted Fo get his wife out of
town. Mrs. Grace suspected he had
an engagement with another woman.
She accused him of it and she said she
was going to take back the power of
attorney she had given him to sell her
property. Grace, began scuffling with
her to prevent her from taking the
documents. He began swearing at her
and threatening to kill her, grabbing
up his revolver at the same time. Mrs.
Grace grabbed Grace's hand in an ef ef-t'ort
t'ort ef-t'ort to protect himself, the revolver
discharged and Grace was shot.
"Grace did not think at first that he
was badly wounded, and he made his
wife leave the house without calling a
physician, but first obtaining t her
promise to say nothing about the ac accidental
cidental accidental shooting. Those alibi letters
were written by Grace himself and his
wife knew nothing about that matter."

"It is rather refreshing to read from
the columns of our very dear contem contemporary,
porary, contemporary, the Ocala Evening Star, a
complaint of the "gambling dens" of
Tampa observe that they are always
"dens" being run "contrary to state
law. It has been but a very little
time ago fnat the same paper was ad admitting,
mitting, admitting, with rather a boastful air.
that the people of its town knew per perfectly

was "contrary to the state law," but
as they saw fit to think that It was "a
dead letter," they deliberately violat violated
ed violated It. Now, when it Is stated that
these vandals of Tampa are breaking
another state law the little Star hides
Its horrified face and only twinkles
feebly between Its Angers."
W are glad to refresh the Times
It needs refreshing. It is quite amus amusing,
ing, amusing, tho, to see the Times, which only
a few weeks ago rebuked Ocala for
allowing two able-bodied men to open openly
ly openly meet In fair competition of strength
and skill, squalling like a spanked
baby when the Star and other papers
denounce Tampa for not only allowing
tut protecting what even shady cltl
sens admit to be a crime.
The Times Is correct in saying
"gambling dens" are always dens. We
make no apology for so styling them,
and are glad to have the Times back
us up in the statement. But the Times
has no warrant for saying the Star
ever boasted of the Ocala boxing bout,
or that It now hides its horrified face
at Tampa. The fact Is, that If the
Times had confined Itself strictly to
the truth in this controversy, it would
have had mighty little to say.
The Times further remarks: "It com
plains that 'men from other commun
Itles go Into them and lose their mon
ey, and are roughly handled If they
make a kick.' Is there no moral guilt?
Is there no legal guilt attaching to
these guileless rustics who would

the guilt of the spider. The Times
"Must Tampa provide for them
guardians to steer their erring foot-
rteps clear of the pitfalls?"
Yes, Mr. Times; that Is one of the
duties of your police. When a stranger
comes to simple and countrified Ocala,
our policemen keep him out of trouble
it they can; and If he insists on trou
ble anyhow, our city court Is lenient
with him Instead of soaking him with
a double-barreled' fine. It Is true that
we have not Tampa's Incentives to pro
mote the entanglement of straying
feet, buT so far no one has accused our
officers of protecting gamblers, and
certainly our city judge has even gone
from his own courtroom to defend
gamblers before another tribunal.
The Times winds up by saying: "We
re willing to 'bear our share of cen censure

community, but those who assume the
Tole of censors 'should first clear their
own skirts of all spot or stain. Com Comment

and we shall not complain.','
It Is our Impression that the Times
started In on this censure business
with a long, double-leaded article. In
which It denounced the entire city of
Ocala because some 300 of its citizens,
quite openly and above-board, wit witnessed

does not arraign all the people of

Cora's visage followed her voice.
She thrust it round the door-post,

"Do you want to tackle a game of

he's forgot all I taught him last time."
They were too bewildered to make
any response. Rose gathered up her
coat and dropped it again, looking stu stupidly

turned back to the passage, calling:
"Here they are, Mr. Willoufihby, all

Perley himself, a mere pillar of wrap wrappings,

"It's true that you're going to-morrow?"
he said almost gruffly.
"Oh, yes, we're really going. Ev Everything's

"Ill follow in a day or two," he
said, "probably go down on Tuesday,
the doctor says."
She began gathering up the books,
reading the titles, and putting aside
those that were not hers.
"I'm so sorry it's over," she said
in a preoccupied voice without any
particular regret in it- The Mill on
the Floss Is Mrs. Perley's, I think."
"I'm sorry, too," he commented,

at the back, said:

Bee you in San Francisco, of course."
"I don't think so, he answered.
She laid the book on the table and
turned her face toward him. He stood
looking Into the fire, not seeing the
face, but conscious of It, of its expres expression,
sion, expression, of Its every line.
"Do you mean that we're not going
to see you down there at all?"
"Yes, that's Just about what I
meant," he replied.
"Mr. Ryan!" It was hardly more
than a breath of protest, but it was
as stirring to the man as the whis whisper
per whisper of love.
He made no comment on it, and she
said, with a little more of Insistence
"It's best not he answered, and
turned toward her.
His shoulders were squared and he
held his head as a man does who
prepares himself for a blow. His
eyes, looking straight into hers, en

folding, enfolding, possessive glance, caressing
and ardent, pleading and masterful, of
The books that she was holding fell
to the table, and they looked at each
other while the clock ticked.
"It's best for me not to come," he
said huskily, "never to come."
"Very well," she faltered.
He came a little nearer to her and
said : v.
"rou know what I mean.
She turned away, very pale, her lips
"And you'd like me to come If I
could If I were free?"
He was close to her and looked
down to see her face, his own hard,
the bones of the Jaw showing through
the thin cheeks.
" You'd like me to?" he urged.
She nodded, her lips too dry to
"O Rose!" he whispered, a whisper
that seemed to melt the strength of
her heart and make her unvanquished,
maiden pride dissolve into feeblenes.
He leaned nearer and, taking her
by the arms Just above the elbows,
drew her to himself, into an embrace,
close and Impassioned, that crushed
her against him. She submitted pas passively,
sively, passively, in a dizzy dream that was nei neither

beautiful. She was unconscious of his

the beating of his heart beneath her
They stood thus for a moment, ris rising
ing rising above time and space. They
seemed to have been caught up to a
pinnacle of life where the familiar
world lay far beneath them. A Joy,
divine and dreamy, held them clasped
together, motionless and mute, for a
single point of time beyond and out outside
side outside the limitations that had hereto
fore bound them.
Bill Cannon had a question to ask
his daughter and he came down stairs
to the parlor where she had told him
she was going. He had dressed him himself
self himself for supper, the most important
Item of his toilet being a pair of
brown leather slippers. They were
soft and made no sound, and stepping
briskly Inhem he advanced to the
half-open parlor door, pushed it open
and entered the quiet room. On the
hearth-rut? before the fire stood a
woman clasped in the arms of Dom Domlnick
lnick Domlnick Ryan.
Though the face was hidden, the
first glance told him it was his daugh
ter. The young man's head was bowed
on hers, his brown hair rising above
the gleaming blondness of hers. They
were absolutely. motionless and silent.
For an amazed moment the father
stared at them, then turned and tip
toed out of the room.
He mounted several steps of the
staircase and then descended, step stepping
ping stepping as heavily as he could, and, as
he advanced on the parlor, coughed
with aggressive loudness. He was on
the threshold when he encountered
his daughter, her head lowered, her
gait quick, almost a run. Without a
word he stepped aside and let her
pass, the rustling of her skirt dimin diminishing
ishing diminishing as she ran up the hall and
mounted the stairs.
Domlnick was standing on the
hearth-rug, his head raised like a
stag's; hl3'eyes, wide and gleaming,
on the doorway through which she
had passed. Cannon stopped directly
in front of him and fixed a stony,
menacing glare on him.
"Well, Domlnick Ryan," he said In
a low voice, "I saw that. I came in

He swept the elder man out of his
path, and, lurching and staggering on
his wounded feet, hurled himself out
of the room.
