the governor, after having passed
both the House and the Senate. Cer Certainly

Editor Star: A constitutional ar argument
gument argument by a layman may not appeal
to the legal fraternity, but if I fail
to show that the recent license or ordinance
dinance ordinance passed by the city council is
unconstitutional, it will at least be
no trouble to show that it is unjust,
unfair and discriminatory; a way wayfaring
faring wayfaring man will be able to see that.
While it is true that the legisla legislature,
ture, legislature, by charter, authorizes the city
council to fix licenses according to
its judgment (or lack thereof) re regardless
gardless regardless of the amount charged by
the state: but is a legislative grant
or charter not subject to the limi limitations
tations limitations of the constitution of the
state? The constitution says that
the legislature shall provide for a
uniform and equal rate of taxation,
and that all property shall be taxed
upon the principles established by
the state; the latter is in the clause
relating to cities and towns.
Quoting from the supreme court
of the state: "The power of the leg legislature
islature legislature to provide for levying a tax
on licenses is not expressly limited,
but should not be so exercised as to
offend the due process and equal
protection clauses of the constitu constitution."
tion." constitution." Clauses referred to by the
court are in the Bill of Rights.
This ordinance is favorable to
large merchants, but with this and a
few other exceptions. the rate is
fixed arbitrarily, or what is termed
a "flat rate," without reference to
capital stock, stock in trade, invest invested
ed invested capital, output or capacity. To
particularize in a few cases: The
state taxes banks according to cap capital
ital capital stock; the city fixes a fiat rate,
charging as much for a bank or
banking company with $12, ."," cap capital
ital capital as for a bank with $7.1,000 cap
ital stock. Is that according to the
principles of state taxation? Is that
equal protection under the law as
guaranteed by the constitution? The
city makes no distinction between a
feed and sales stable and a livery,
feed an 1 sales stable, charging a
man with a $.10 0 investment in a
feed and sales stable the same as is
charged for a $:l-100 investment in a
large sale, livery and feed stable. In
this connection I will aid that the
city demands a license tax of more
than 2 CO per cent more thin the
state charges livery stables.. A fiat
rate is fixed for ice factories rnstead
cf tonnage capacity: in fact, the
whole thing is nearly a fiat rate
I will now call attention to a few
of the most glaring discriminations:
A wholesale grocer carrying an as assessed
sessed assessed stock of $6-100 pays a license
tax of $14; a wholesale oil dealer
with an assessed stock of $.10o is
made to pay a license tax of $.10; a
market stall with a wooden block, a
cleaver, a pair of scales and a quar quarter
ter quarter of beef must pay $lo; a merch merchant
ant merchant with a $4000 stock (assessed
value recollect) pays $9.50; the ex express
press express company doing business with a
$1000 investment is required to pay
$100. while a bank with a capital
stock of $7.1.000 pays $2.1. Ac According
cording According to local investment, the ex express
press express company must pay three hun hundred
dred hundred times as much as the bank.
The telegraph company has $140 in invested
vested invested in Ocala, and must pay $100.
The largest merchant in Ocala pays
$33.50 as a license tax.
The state does not class or tax any
boarding house with less than ten
rooms or beds habitually kept for
lodgers, and even then exempts wid widows,
ows, widows, except those worth .mere than
five thousand dollars, but if any
poor widow or other person in Ocala
boards one person and rents one
room, the city demands a $5 license.
The support of two daily papers is
one of Ocala's best assets in the way

of outside advertisement; m fact, it i
is the goose that lays golden eggs,!
yet it must be plucked if not killed ;
by taxation. These two newspaper j
plants pay the city a personal tax of(
$67. .jO: now the city demands $40:
more for the privilege of publishing j
daily and weekly iapers. and $10
more from each if thev want to do!
job printing. Yet these papers are
expected to praise the city .its offi- j
cers and government. j
I have been unable to ascertain
who drew or prepared this ordi-j
nance, but it is evident that it did j
not receive any serious or careful

Starke Telejiraph Says" (Jive the
Heathen the Cold Shoulder
tarke Telegraph: While the col-
onizing of Japanese cannot be
fraught with any danger of a war
with Japan, it is not desirable. Cal-
iforuia's case proves this, although
the Japanese there fills a place that j
j would be hard to supply, should they
have put themselves on record for
not locking the stable door before
the horse is stolen. Now when we
know the danger that threatens, let
us. until we get a law for the pur purpose,
pose, purpose, refrain from selling land to
the Japs who come. The public
feeling in the matter which grows
stronger every day, should be too
much for land owners before they
sign deeds for land to Japanese.
The Jap immigrant has his proto prototype
type prototype in the English sparrow. Like
this enterprising and undesirable
bird they send out advance guards
to "spy out the land," and if the re reports
ports reports are favorable, hordes of the
little brown people will soon invade
the territory. On account of their
color, religion and habits, they can
never assimilate with the Caucasian
race and show no affinity for the lat latter
ter latter whatever. Like the English
sparrow they are clannish, crowd
out the white man from their neigh neighborhoods,
borhoods, neighborhoods, and on account of produc production
tion production too cheap for any white man to
attempt, will undersell the latter un until
til until they are starved out of certain
occupations. Besides, they are
"chesty," insolent and unreliable.
The Japanese can no more assimi assimilate
late assimilate with the negroes than they can
with the whites, and a large Jap
population in Florida would give us
a second problem to solve, before we
have solved the negro problem.
Therefore, in the absence of a law
to prevent these Asiatics from be becoming
coming becoming part and parcel of Florida
let us give them the cold shoulder.

A half hour later a man driving
down the dusty road at a rapid pace
drew up his horses sharply, with an
ejaculation of surprise. The figure
in the blue cotton dress leaning back
against the great oak was so still,
and the sweet face framed in the
heavy masses of wavy brown hair
was so white that he thought at first
she was dead. But at the clatter of
the team and his own strong voice
Melissy's slumber was broken and
she sat up, looking dazed and a lit little

like a sleepy child. Then she
laughed and her face turned pink

bearded face. She put on her sun sunbonnet,

"Oh. those papers!" exclaimed Matt
"But really, general, what is one to

The general, still laughing at his Own

passing acquaintance, affording Matl
the opportunity of asking Miss Mar Marshall

the round of the booths with him. Her
face showed her pleasure at the pro

arch and eager. Matt seemed to read
something that made him dizzy. She
was more than pretty: she was ex exquisite,
quisite, exquisite, and the sudden realization of
her beauty was not without a dart of
pain. They moved about, talking or.
rather, trying to talk, for the noise and
jostle caused constant interruptions interruptions-talking

midair like a wooden lily on a long,

high above his head. But as he gazed
his resolution grew, and he announced
it recklessly.
"But they'll all see us!" cried Miss
Marshall, aghast.
"Only the tops of our heads, and they
won't recognize us." said Matt.
"And Mr. Doty will be s:-andalized-evervbody
