THE CAXXIXG INDUSTRY
The conditions of the canning indus industry
try industry as set forth in the dispatches
should be an incentive to the girls
tomato clubs proposed in Florida and
other states to organize and com commence
mence commence work.
Not only are the filthy and cruel
conditions of the canning- camps an
outrage on the women and children
who work In them. They are a menace
to the entire country. Who knows

It is all right, we suppose, for
children to be robtred of childhood's
heritage of play and instruction in
order that capitalists may coin a few
more dollars. Children, have no rights
their parents are not able to buy. But
the older folks have a right to demand
that their food be kept to a certain
point of wholesomeness, so they may maybe
be maybe able to work and earn money
enough to buy a few rights for their
children and themselves.
There is a disposition on the part
of the civilized man, to do anything
that i3 treacherous and cruel in order
to make money, that is as bad or
worse than the disposition on the part
of his "prehistoric ancestor to kill and
steal in order to obtain deer meat for
his stomach and wolf skins for his
"back. The avarice of the civilized
man Is not redeemed by the brute
courage of the cave dweller, it is not
as necessary, and it does more harm
If the young women of Florida and
other southern states will now take
advantage of the material plentiful to
their hands to prepare wholesome
foods, they are not only certain of a
home demand to meet their industry,
but are likely to create an outside
market that will send much money
into this section. This Is a very pro propitious
pitious propitious time for them to begin work.
DOX'T KILL THE DOG
A slight hydroprobia scare, which
started up In a near neighborhood, a
few days ago, give the Star occasion
to repeat the warning it has already
published a time or two, and that is,
"Don't kill the dog."
If a supposedly mad dog is at large,
capture him if possible, tie him up In
a cool, dry place, give him food and
water and watch him. Don't kill him
unless it is absolutely impossible to
capture him. If he bites other dogs,
treat them the same way.
There is no disease that creates as
much panic in proportion as rabies,
yet when it is taken in time with the
remedies now known to medical men,
it Is not difficult to prevent. It does
not spread very rapidly in the system
up to a certain point, and any -man in
the ordinary civilized community, if
he is bitten by a dog, may be sure of
Tecovery if he acts sensibly. He
should at once consult the nearest
physician, who will treat the wound
and Teport the case to the state board
of health, which will always advise
-what is best to be done. The work of
the state board is greatly helped by
knowing if the dog is mad or not. The
man Is also greatly helped by know knowing
ing knowing the dog Isn't mad, which is often
the case. The scientists can't decide
about the dog until the disease has
passed a certain point. If the dog Is
killed before that point is reached,
they can only guess.
The power of suggestion Is great
in supposed rabies. There are cases
on Tecord of men being bitten by dogs
and dying in convulsions, tho the dogs
were afterward found to be free from
the disease. Of late years, there have
been cases of men and women who
after being bitten rushed off to the
nearest Pasteur institute at great ex expense,
pense, expense, when the animals that bit them
were probably not affected with any anything

IMPORTANT TO OCALA
Ocala has reason to hope that the
prospects of Improvements and re renewed

materialize. Cedar Key was a very
Important point to this section forty
years ago. It distributed goods up
and down the coast in small boats and
through the country by wagons. The
late Captain Samuel Agnew had a
store on the Wekiwa river, otherwise
known as Blue Springs run, and ran
a small steamer regularly to Cedar
Key and return via the run and the
Withlacoochee river. Strange to say,
freights were lower than in propor proportion

run is much like Silver Springs run
it rises out of the ground i.x a large
volume and runs in a stream big
endugh to float a fifty-ton steamer to
the Withlacoochee, as Silver Springs
Tuns Into the Oklawaha. Blue Springs
is not as big as Silver Springs and the
Withlacoochee is not as large as the
Oklawaha, and on account of the
rapids not as easy to navigate. How However
ever However there ara no unsurmountable ob obstacles
stacles obstacles in it. Cedar Key would be a
very important consideration to Ocala
and all th's territory if it should
again become a deep water port. An
independent cross country railroad to
Cedar Key would put Ocala in direct
touch with Mobile and New Orleans
and the Panama canal. Steps are al already

Withlacoochee, and the government
will keep the work going if the people

everywhere, particularly with our
literary societies and schools, who use
his poems with much success in en entertaining
tertaining entertaining and educating, awakening
through them the finer emotions and
tenderest sympathies of one's nature.
Will Carleton was born in Hudson,
Mich., Oct. 21. 1845, and was at the
time of his death the editor of "Every "Everywhere,"
where," "Everywhere," a monthly magazine contain
ing one or more of his poems at each
It is not worth while to argue with
the editor of the Tampa Times, who
with a few other dreary-witted per persons
sons persons condemns the speedy trial and
conviction of a brute who had dis dishonored
honored dishonored a woman. Wading labori laboriously
ously laboriously thru the half a column or more
of words that he wrote, doubtless to
his own great delectation, for the
Times on Monday, we fail to find any
thing worth answering. He reiterates
his assertions, and makes some more
assertions, and fortifies them with the
approval of a friend doubtless as il illustrious
lustrious illustrious as himself. In another place,
he rears back on his dew claw3 and
savs. "to those who were so dull of
perception as to misconstrue what we
said we desire to offer no explana
tion." This was probably intended to
offend somebody, but it is really
funny. After taking no end of pains
to confirm everybody in their first
opinion of what he plainly said, he
speaks of misconstruct'on. In hi3 first
article, he denominates the court of
the fifth judicial circuit as a mob, and
in the second he says that that was
what he meant. Entirely too dense to
see that he misconstrues himself, h
thinks others tan misconstrue him. If
it was worth while, we would reprint
his article, as his own best refutation.
He speaks of his legal training of
many years, leading his readers to
suppose he is a lawyer. "VVe suspect
that his legal attainments are on
par -with those of a certain Dogberry-,
who was celebrated by Shakspere
some hundreds of years ago. There is,
however, one great difference between
Dogberry and the editor of the Times
Dogberry lamented because he had
not been written down an ass, while
the editor of the Times has writ him
self down an ass.
Justice to our courts and people as
well as a very fair expression of pub public
lic public sentiment is shown in the follow
ing from the Tampa Tribune:
An Untenable Position
In the opinion of the Tribune, its
afternoon neighbor makes a serious
mistake when it attacks the procedure
of the circuit court of Marion county
in the prompt disposition of the case
of the negro rapist, and describes i
as "lynching under the forms of law.'
There would be small hope of avoid
ing lynchings if press and public sub
scribed to such views.
The Marion county case was an ex
t.remely aggravated one. Hillsborough
county gave a similar example re
cently, which, although not quite so
expeditious as the Ocala case, was to
all intents and purposes similar in
purpose and particulars.
The Tribune believes that the only
method of preventing lynchings in this
state is the method adopted by Hills
borough county, in the case of Ander
son, and by Marion county, in the case
of the negro Johnson. Delaying such
plain and conclusive cases merely
fans public discontent with the pro
cedure of the courts. It opens numer
ous possibilities for the miscarriage
of justice through the escape of the
prisoner or other means of thwarting
the law. It is the history of serious
crimes in Florida that, when the trial
Is delayed and the court procedure In
terrupted by frequent technicalities,
the criminal nearly always escapes
proper punishment. One instance o
the prompt and direct action of the
courts, the speedy imposition of the
law, is worth much to the state in the
prevention of mob outbreaks and sim
We do not agree with the Times
when it says that it would have pre preferred
ferred preferred lynching at the hands of the
mob rather than the trial and convic conviction
tion conviction in circuit court. We do not think
any good citizen of Florida will agree
with the afternoon paper on tha
proposition. Florida was spared ;
lynching in this case, only through
the confidence of the people in the
promise of the officials that there
would be a speedy trial. That promise
was carried out and the negro has
been duly convicted and sentenced and
will be executed next Wednesday
That, to the mind of the Tribune, Is
infinitely better for the good name o
the state than would have been the
spectacle of an angry mob. defying
all forms of law, wresting the crim
inal from the custody of the officers
supposed to protect him and taking
his life in the usual barbarous fash
ion. This may not be the view of the
Times, but it will find itself In a sorry
minority in assuming the contrary
THE JURY WAS IX SESSION
What could have been gained for
the cause of justice or humanity by
postponing the trial a week or
month, or awaiting the regular sitting
of the grand jury? Tampa Tribune.
The Tribune errs In this one in
stance. The grand jury was in ses
sion. -and Johnson was tried at th
regular term of th circuit court.
A WHITE MAN'S OPIXIOX
The trial and conviction of a negro
for criminal assault on a white worn
an in Marion county within three day day-after
after day-after his arrest last week and his sen
tence to be hanged Wednesday of this
week has precipitated a newspaper
discussion, it being insisted by one
side that the speed of the proceedings
was inconsistent with legal decorum
in a case of such gravity. That an is issue
sue issue of this kind should be made is
surprising, for to us it seems that the
prompt disposition of the Marion coun county
ty county case should be matter for general
rejoicing, because it saved the couaty
from the disgrace of a ly-nching and
brought the swift vengeance of the
law upon a wretch in whose behalf
not one word of defense or excuse
could be uttered. The right disposi disposition
tion disposition of cases of this character, to the
end that such crimes may be made as
infrequent as possible and the fullest
protection of the law be thrown
around our women is a matter of
superlative importance, and the speed speediest
iest speediest possible trial consistent with law
and the early infliction of the death
penalty is certainly one means to that
