FIRST MESSAGE II!
WILSON WASTES FEW WORD3 IN
TELLING CONGRESS WHAT IT
TARIFF REVISION HIS TOPIC
President Says the Schedules Must Be
Radically Changed to Square With
Present Conditions, but Work Re Requires
quires Requires Careful Consideration.
Washington, April 8. President
Wilson's first message to the Sixty Sixty-third
third Sixty-third congress, assembled In extraor extraordinary
dinary extraordinary session, was read in the senate
and house today. It was surprising surprisingly
ly surprisingly short, being in full as follows;
To the Senate and House of Repre Representatives:
sentatives: Representatives: I have called the congress together
in extraordinary session because a
duty was laid upon the party now in
power at the recent elections which it
ought to perform promptly, in order
that the burden carried by the people
under existing law may be lightened
as soon as possible and In order, also,
that the business interests of the
cpuntry may not be kept too long in
suspense as to what the'nscal changes J
are to be to which they will be re required
quired required to adjust themselves. ft is clear
ttt tfte whole country that the tariff
duties must be altered. They must
be changed to meet the radical altera alteration
tion alteration in the conditions of our ecnomio
life which the country has witnessed
within the last generation.
While the whole face and method of
our industrial and commercial life
were being changed beyond recogni recognition
tion recognition the tariff schedules have re remained
mained remained what they were before the
change began, or, have moved in the
direction they were given when no
large circumstance of our Industrial
development was what it is today.
Our task is to square them with the
actual facts. The sooner that is done
the sooner we shall escape from suf suffering
fering suffering from the facts and the sooner
our men of business will be free to
thrive by the law of nature (the na nature
ture nature of free business) instead of by
the law of legislation-and artificial ar arrangement.
Business Not Normal.
We haye seen tariff legislation
wander very far afield in our day
very far indeed from the field in which
pur prosperity might have had a nor normal
mal normal growth and stimulation. No one
who looks the facts squarely in the
face pr knows anything that lies be beneath
neath beneath the surface of action can fail to
perceive the principles upon which
recent tariff legislation has been
based. We long ago passed beyond
the modest notion of "protecting" the
industries of the country- and moved
boldly forward to the idea that they
were entitled to the direct patronage
of the government. For a long time
. a time so long that the men ?ow active
in publi& policy hardly remember the
Conditions that preceded it we t have
sought in our tariff schedules to give
each group of manufacturers or pro producers
ducers producers what they themselves, thought
that they needed in prder to
maintain a practically exclusive
market as against the rest of the
world. Consciously or unconsciously,
we have built up a set of privileges
and exemptions from competition be behind
hind behind which it was easy by any, even
the crudest, forms of combination to
organize monopoly; until at last noth nothing
ing nothing is normal, nothing is obliged to
stand the tests of efficiency and econ?
pmy, in our world of big business, but
everything thrives by concerted ar ar-rangemept.
rangemept. ar-rangemept. Only new principles of
actio! will save us from a Anal hard
crystallization of monopoly and a
complete loss of the influences that
quicken enterprise and keep inde
pendent energy alive.
Jt is plain what those principles
must be.- We must abolish everything
that bears even the semblance of prjv
Jlege or of any kind of artificial ad advantage,
vantage, advantage, and put our business men
and producers under the stimulation
of a constant necessity to be efficient,
economical, and enterprising, master
of competitive eupremacy, better
workers and merchants than any in
the world. Aside from the duties laid
, "win articles which we do not. and
prooaDly cannot, produce, therefore,
and the duties laid upon luxuries and
merely for the sake of the revenues
they yield, the object of the tariff du duties
ties duties henceforth laid must be effective
competition, the whetting of Ameri American
can American wits iy contest with the wits of
the rest of the world.
Development, Net Revolution.
It would be unwise to move toward
this end headlong, with reckless
haste, pr with strokes that cut at the
very roots of what has grown up
amongst us by long process and at
pur own invitation. It does not alter
a thing to upset it and break it and
deprive t of a chance to change. It
destroys it We must make changes
in our fiscal laws, in our fiscal system,
whose object is development, a more
free and wholesome development, not
revolution or upset or confusion. We
must build up trade, especially for foreign
eign foreign trade. We need the outlet and
the enlarged field of energy more
than we ever did before. We must
build up Industry as well and must
adopt freedom in the place of arti
flcial stimulation only so far as it will
build, not pull down. In dealing with
the tariff the method by which this
may be done will be a matter of Judg Judgment,
ment, Judgment, exercised item by item.
To some not accustomed to the ex
citements and responsibilities of
greater freedom our methods may In
some respects and at some points
seem heroic, but remedies may be
heroic and yet be remedies. It is our
business to make sure that they are
genuine remedies. Our object is clear.
If our motive is above Just challenge
ana only an occasional error or judg judgment
ment judgment is chargeable against us, we
shall be fortunate.
We are called upon to render the
country a great service in more mat matters'
ters' matters' than one. Our responsibility
should be met and our methods should
be thorough, as thorough as moderate
and well considered, based upon the
facts as they are, and not worked out
as if we were beginners. We are to
deal with the facts of our own day,
with the facts of no other, and to
4X10. zvp Act- w 9 uivu 4uai w vitbu .w-
facts. It is best, indeed it is neces-
sary. to begin with the tariff. I will
urge nothing upon you now at the
opening of your session which can ob-
scure iudv uist uujftt ui invert um
energies from that clearly defined i
duty. At a later time I may take the j
liberty of calling your attention to re- i
forms which should press close upon
the heels of the tariff changes, if not
accompany them, of which the chief
is the reform of our banking and cur-
rency laws; but just now I refrain.
For the present, I put these matters
on one side and think only of this one
thing of the changes in our fiscal
system which may best serve- to open
once more the free channels of pros prosperity
perity prosperity to a great people whom we
would serve to the utmost and
throughout both rank and file.

t Change in Convict System,

made for the discontinuance of the

as practicable in building, and repair repairing

oners, prisoners, female prisoners, and those of
the prison population who are not
it?ed by the counties in the building
and maintaining of public roads
should be kept at the state prison
farm when established in Bradford
county. Such change can, and, in
my, opinion, should be accomplished
by legislation that will not require
a levy of direct taxation for the ex expense

the change. To inaugurate a new new-plan

of fresh meat on .Sunday, the only day
in the week that they really have time
to enjoy their meals. In the weather
that prevails in this climate seven
months in the year meat cannot be
kept without a refrigerator. An ex
pedlent is to wrap meat and ice up to
gether in a box or a bucket, but that
is not good for either the meat or the
Th couneilmen in favor of the or
dinance have given th matter careful
consideration. They are convinced that
the passage of the ordinance will be
only justice to many people that the
present regulations discriminate
against. A large majority of our peo
ple, either having refrigerators in their
homes, or living at hotels or boarding
houses, have not thought of those who
have to take their choice on Sunday
between meat more or less tainted and
canned goods. Either alternative is
not helpful to morality or health.
Ocala's Sunday laws are oppressive
freaks. A man can buy cigars, which
. ,wlll keep the year round; soft drinks
iand ice cream, which he needs less
ithan anything else in the world; news

-OFFICE OF RECORDER
SHOULD XOT BE AHOLIfcllEU
Th Star desires to commend Alder
roun Livingston for his resolution ask
:-mg the city attorney to draw up a pro
test against the legislature abolishing
the office of city recorder.
The Star Is not able to understand
why any one wants the office of re
reorder abolished. It is quite as nec
.essary to the peace and dignity of the
.city as that of clerk or marshal, and
ven more so than that of mayor.
It is occasionally asserted by some
one who has most likely given no
thought to the subject that the duties
of both mayor and city judge should
Jbe discharged by one indiv'dual. It is
tfiecessary in a country village or small
town for both offices to be filled by on
.man for the reason .that it is impos
-sible to pay a judge out of the revenue
of such a place, and the mayor gen
.erally has to have the fees resulting
.from convictions to induce him ,to ae
icept the office. Even in such places
ihe office of mayor Is generally held by
lawyer when It isn't, except in the
vjeaae of some unusually well-informed
individual, the village or town has to
jsuffer much unintentional, and some
time a intentional injustice that no
.seldom results In reversals of judg
ment and sometimes costly damage
suits. The larger a place, the greater
this injustice, or chanoe'of it, becomes
Ocala, since the writer ixcame one
iOf its citizens, has been lucky iu its
jinayors. .Nearly all of them have been
vwell informed, level-headed and broad
.minded men. It is no more than the
ttruth to say that the Judgments ren
dered by the present incumbent have
most always shown a clear sense of
justice and sound good sense. "We may
, tnot be- -40 lucky in futuie and it
well now to keep Ocala on the level
.with other towns of Its sl.e by keep

.our city government. The appoint

iHis decision in the- Fausett case was
,of more value to the town than his
salary many times over. No mayor.
.-unless he was a- trained lawyer, would
:have Tendered it. He would simply
have ordered the ordinance carried ou
and subjected the city to a costly suit
and mortifying reversal in a highe

avoid the mistakes in court decisions

The mayor of a town is its executive
.head. He therefore should not be Its
judicial officer. The two functions are
sure to conflict sometimes, and then
justice suffers. A Judge should be paid
.a salary If possible. If he isn't a man
.of exceptionally high character, the
consideration .of fees will warp his
.sense ,of Justice as surely as water
tfvin ,run down hill.
Another .reason why the office of re recorder
corder recorder should not be abol'shed is that
very few people in Ocala want It
Abolished. Nobody has any complaint
against it, and it is a safe bet that if a
-petition to have it done nway with was

, FOR THE CIRCUIT COURT
The Star has been much interested
lately in the very obvious overload of
work on the circuit court not from
any complaint on the part of the court
officers, but because no one could help
noticing the great length of the terms,
and the number of cases that repeated repeatedly
ly repeatedly went over from one term to another
It has always semed strange to the
writer that a county the size of Mar
lon had no court of criminal record.
Every other county of its size, and
many smaller and most of them are
smaller, for as we all know Marion is
one of the biggest has such a court,
and all that have them find them to be
a great help to the speedy administra
tion of Justice.
Naturally, the Star thought Marion
should have a court of criminal record,
but on discussing the matter with the
people found a large number of them
firmly opposed to it. All against it
said it would be another big expense.
and we already have courts enough.
The plan of having a county court
was then suggested, and It looked
good to the Star; as it seemed like ,it
would certainly take quite a lot of
work off the circuit court. On investi
gation, however, the Star found most
of the lawyers opposed to the plan.
They said that the law did not Tequlre
the Judge of probate, who would be the
county Judg, to be an experienced
lawyer, and that the public business
might become confused, to say the
least, In his court.
This does not apply, in the opinion
of any lawyer the Star consulted, to
the present incumbent, who is a well
read lawyer and an exceedingly fair
minded man, but It might apply to
some successor of his, elected more on
his popularity than his merit.
The Star believes fully in letting
the people have what they want. If
they make a mistake, they are the
ones who nave to pay for it, and ths
only way they can progress is by the
experience of one mistake, which will
teach them to avoid the next one.
thing should be done. Judge W, S.
Bullock, our circuit court Judge, prob
ably the hardest worked official of his
class jn the state, is driven beyond his
capacity. He works day and night,
and he frankly says that he is not able
to give many cases the consideration
they should have.
The Star asked Judge Bullock for an
opinion on the Jurisdiction and com
paratlve merits of county courts tnd
courtB of criminal record, and the
judge devoted some hours that he
much needed for rest to drawing up a
document setting forth the required
information. The Star would print it
today, but the messages of the presi president
dent president and governor crowd our space
We will print it In full tomorrow,
however, and all should study it care carefully,
fully, carefully, as it concerns one of the most
important subjects before the people.
