general governor-general of the Philippine Islands
closed an address last night before
the City Club in which he defended
the policy of the United States to towards

and warned against a premature

"President Wilson has started up upon

Mr. Forbes. "He ha's given the Fil Filipinos

"My recommendation is that we
proceed along what I consider the

Dreadful Ending Brought Upon the
Outlaw, Lopez, by Kis Evil
Bingham, Utah, Dec. 4. No
sound since last night has come
from Utah-Apex mine, in which
Ralph Lopez, the Mexican desperado,
is confined. All the exits except that
in the lower level, were sealed with
doable bulkheads, and it is believed
that the gas-filled mine has become
the fugitives tomb.
The watchfulness of seven sheriffs
and more than 200 deputies, who
expected a break for liberty on the
part of Lopez, is relaxed, although
the number of guards has not been
lessened. It wa3 considered impos impossible

striking testimony of the deadliness
of the gases that filled the mine.
Thousands of pounds of wet gun
powder were consumed to generate
what is known and feared by miners
as "black damp." Sulphur, coal tar,
formaldehyde and black oil were the
chief ingredients used in addition.
Two hundred men are out of work
in the lower level as a result of the
smudging operations. The operators
are said to be suffering a net loss of
more than SI, 000 a day. They an announced

before Friday night.

Iresident's Menage Discussed by

London, Dec. 4. The Times,
which is devoting great atention to
the Mexican situation, is publishing
a free series of dispatches from Mex Mexico
ico Mexico City, calling serious attention
"to the desperate situation develop developing
ing developing in consequence of the attitude
of the United States," and declaring
that if the American tactics of
"watchful waiting" continues to be
pursued "there are no words too
strong to paint the disastrous results
which will ensue."
In an editorial on these dispatches
and President Wilson's message, the
Times says:
"We are convinced that these
dangers are realized as. fully at
Washington as at Mexico City. Pres Presidents,
idents, Presidents, like other, rulers, are not giv given
en given to betraying the secrets of their
policy in public utterances. We shall
be surprised if, when Gen. Huerta is
got rid of, President Wilson is not
found to have thought out' and be
ready to apply a plan for restoring
order and decent government in
The other London morning papers
note and comment the brevity of
the President's message. The Stand Standard

to doubt that the President's policy
will achieve the initial success of re removing

It is very evident to the people of

big neighborhood fair, they must
depend on the counties to the south.
In the last twelve months, the Mar Marion
ion Marion County Fair management has
made most advantageous offers to
the people of Alachua that they
should help In making a tri-county
exhibit for the common benefit of
this part of the state. The county
commissioners of Alachua and many
of the business men of Gainesville
approved of the idea and were will willing

consummation, but almost immedi immediately

and indifference in the rank and file
of their own people that compelled
them to remain as indifferent as
ever. It was the Star's, opinion at
the first that such would be the re result,
sult, result, but'it did not say go, because it
would have been glad indeed to have
had the cooperation of Gainesville
and Alachua county in that or any
other good work. The attenipt has
been made and failed, so let us have
no more of it. Our best friends are
in the counties to the south. Sum Sumter
ter Sumter helped us nobly, and hundreds of
people from Lake and Citrus came
to our fair. Let us try to work with
them for the upbuilding of this part
of the state and waste no more of
our time on Alachua. Ocala Star.
The editor of the Sun is sorry to

people of Alachua county have only

commissioners rescinded their action h

taken towards establishing a regular
annual county fair in Gainesville.
It is possible that some ill-ieeling
has been occasioned on the part of a ;
few people of Ocala by the Alachua
county Thanksgiving celebration,
which was 'inaugurated by the1,
Gainesville board of trade with the j
view of perfecting a county fair as association,

The Sun repeats that the people

but Alachua is too big a county to

As Marion has fair grounds, race

been the height of silliness for Mar Marion

secretary of the Marion Fair Asso

favor of the Alachua exhibit at the
Marion Fair can't be gainsaid, as the
Star saw letters from them, which
are yet on file in the records of the

the opinion that Alachua had not
treated Marion right was the opinion
freely expressed by a number of
Alachua people who attended the

Chattanooga News: The country
finally seems in a fair way to secure
a good system of rural credits. Fol Following
lowing Following the investigation tour of
prominent members o: the Southern
Commercial Congress, when Euro Euro-jean
jean Euro-jean systems were studied. Senator
Fletcher, a leader of the congress,
has introduced a bill in the Senate
for the establishment of a national
cooperative rural credit system in the
United States.
Perhaps Senator Fletcher's bill
will not be the one to bring the
completed system, but it will cer certainly
tainly certainly serve as a basis. He favors a
combination of the two French sys systems,
tems, systems, one a personal credit, the
other a mortgage credit system.
Critics of his bill declare that he has
arranged a plan which is quite too
complicated, and which will require
high technical skill to carry out.
Many authorities on rural credits
are urging him to favor also the best
points of the Landschaft plan. The
Landschaft system provides for
long-term amortisable loans on
mortgage security on which bonds
are issued and sold in the open mar market.

ricultural agricultural authority, points out that
the Landschaft system is adaptable
to American needs. He says the
French system is suited to needs of
peasant farmers, whereas the Land Landschaft

as in Germany, of land-owning far farmers.
mers. farmers. "While there may be some
limited need in the United. States for
loans on personal security, for a sys system
tem system like the Raiffeisen or the French
local and district banks, by far the
greater need is to render land values
a liquid asset; thereby rendering
impossible the issuance of bonds on
mortgages, as is done under the
Landschaft system. Besides, as you
kno.w, the French local and regional
banks obtain their operating capital
through the French government,
from the Bank of France, and such
a state-aided system is paternalism
pure and simple."
Senator Fletcher's bill admittedly
embodies the best of the French sys system,
tem, system, and it will open a discussion in
Congress which, we have no doubt,
will result in the adoption of the
best rural credit system from an
American standpoint. His measure
brings the campaign for rural cred credits
its credits from the theoretical to the prac practical

To the Voters of the Third Ward:
On my return from a business trip to the East Coast I found that
my name had been placed on the ticket for alderman from this ward with without
out without my knowledge. 1 thank my friends for the honor thus conferred upon
ne; I also desire to express myself upon some of the questions that may
come before this body in the near future.
In my opinion, Ocala's greatest need today, and has been for a long
time, is a better freight rate. If I am elected to the office of alderman, I
shall be in favor of the city cooperating with its merchants and other bus business
iness business men in securing this reduction through Silver Springs. Silver
Springs is the greatest asset that Ocala possesses, and if we fail to avail
ourselves of the benefits possible from this source, in my opinion, we are
guilty of gross negligence. A canal from Silver Springs to Ocala would
be the best investment Ocala has ever made.
LIGHTS AND WATER. These are very important and I shall favor
giving our citizens an abundance of both.
mation information I have on the subject of sewerage disposal, I shall favor the per perfecting
fecting perfecting of our present 6ewerage system by the use of septic tanks. I shall
favor the building of all our principal streets with vitrified brick, to the
city limits; all side streets with lime rock, with concrete cement side
ditches. I shall very much oppose the present system of building and
maintaining streets. I consider that anything that is worth doing at all,
is worth doing well. It has been demonstrated time and time again, here
in the last few years, that the scant way fn which the streets are now re repaired
paired repaired is a waste of time and money.
OCALA AND THE RAILWAY COMPANIES. I am uncompromising uncompromising-ly
ly uncompromising-ly opposed to the railroads blocking up our streets. We need all the
streets we have and the railroads should be forced to maintain good cross crossings
ings crossings on every street that their tracks cross. These streets belong to the
public, and the railroads are allowed to cross them upon the condition
that they maintain good crossings and do not interfere with the public
use of said streets, and when they fail to comply with these conditions,
their tracks should be taken up.
OCALA NEEDS MONEY. No town can ever be a city of any im importance
portance importance without a bonded indebtedness,, therefore I am in favor of
bonds. We could use a million dollars to good advantage in the next
three years.
MANUFACTORIES. One of our greatest needs is factories, there therefore,
fore, therefore, I should favor the city catering to the manufacturing world by
offering them cheap electric current, low taxation, good locations and any
other practical inducements.
The above are some of my views with reference to the upbuilding of
Ocala. If you believe I would make you a good representative in the city
council, it is up to you to elect me. I had nothing to do with putting
myself in this race and I shall make no effort in a personal way to be
elected. I did not want the job, but if you elect me, I shall enter into the
work with my whole heart and give you the very best service possible.
To my colored friends I desire to say that I have always been in favor
of giving the negro a square deal, and whenever they develop the ability
to succeed in a business way, I believe in giving them every protection
and equal rights as other citizens in the same line of business

Chicago Architect Announces Inten Intention

In his plan for the development of
an Ideal residence district within or
near Chicago, Wilhejm Burnhardt, the
Chicago architect, who won first prize
in the City club's contests, discards ge geometrical
ometrical geometrical arrangement. Flowing lines
and irregular boulevards characterize
his plan; trees and shrubs are" to be
used freely. It is an attempt to get
away from the stiff and prosaic effect
of straight lines and has a precedent
familiar to many Chicagoans in the
suburb of Riverside, where winding
streets were laid out at the founding
of the town with happy effects.
Lovers of the picturesque lament
the inartistic results of the gridiron
plan which has been followed in most
towns of the United States. Much .of
the charm of old world cities lies in
their irregular streets, and in this
country Boston is an example of sim similar

hilly country; on flat land the com common
mon common impulse is to build all thorough thoroughfares
fares thoroughfares in straight lines. Utility, of
course, seeks the shortest distance
between any two points, and for this
reason Mr. Burnhard believes his ideal
residence district will not be marred
by business traffic. Whether Chicago Chicagoans
ans Chicagoans will take kindly to the plan is to
be seen, but the City club and Mr.
Burnhard are to be congratulated on
its artistic features. As our civiliza civilization

that women who possessed jewels of
value were becoming "afraid" to wear
them owing to the risks which ac ac-coiapanied
coiapanied ac-coiapanied displaying their property
in public. It became the custom to
seek some place of security where the
more precious possessions could be

deposited. Jewels were "banked" or

committed to the protection of safes

and 6trong rooms. But gradually the
sense of security has in some degree
departed. The modern woman has no
capacity for matching the resourceful
ingenuity of the modern thief. The
most astounding cases of jewel rob robbery

yond beyond being intelligently anticipated.
After all, it is not surprising that those
who possess jewels of value are begin beginning

place is that for which they were In Intended

bits of wisdom, acute knowledge of
human nature, defiance of the world,
mixed with a certain wistfulness for
its approval, and an astonishing desire
to know what was happening in that
world somewhat mixed and un un-pruned,

was greedy for news. Her love for

An Exit.
A page hastening cat-footed, after
the manner of all well-trained pages,
swerved abruptly from his course and
bore down upon the window where the
two friends were seated.
Van Vechten waved in the direction
of Number 1313.
"Alexander," he said, "we are going
to breakfast, and we want you to hold
these two chairs for us. Keep an eye
upon that house across the way thir-teen-thirteen.

vants servants shared the general interest in
the House of Mystery and Alexander
was already seated in one of the va vacated
cated vacated chairs, his eyes glued to the
doorway opposite.
There were only two bther diners in
the grill. Van Vechten and Tom sought
a secluded corner, where the latter
listened in blinking bewilderment to

not hungry now, anyway. What say
to me walking up and ringing the bell

But Van Vechten 's comment was not
"Crude," was his word. "I fear you
will never learn anything beyond
squash, yachts and polo ponies. Those
men are not wandering blindly into
the house; the indications all point to
a prearranged meeting. They may be

had but to enter his head to emerge
at his mouth. The other two diners
looked .up, startled; but perceiving the
source of the outburst, they returned
to their meals with expressions of pa patient

"Yes, anarchists," Van Vechten
agreed; "even so. And you would
have a nice, pleasant time getting in
or, once in, getting out again."
"Oh, well, we might try breaking in
after dark jimmy, you know, and all
that 6ort of thing," a sarcasm which
was frankly ignored.
"It has occurred to me," pursued
Van Vechten, picking daintily at his
omelette souffle, "that a person who
has been at such pains to keep his
identity hidden from the rest of the
world, is stimulated to do so by some
powerful motive. If he is a person of
intelligence it will be no light matter
penetrating his secret; It might be
dangerous for the meddler. And It Is
no business of ours."
"Rats!" Tom Phinney exploded in
disgust. "You're losing interest al already."

The other elevated his brows and
leaned comfortably back In his chair.
"Tommy," he returned weariedly,
"I am willing to try anything once.
And, as you know, whatever I under undertake
take undertake I see through to the end, what whatever
ever whatever that end may be. Just now I
am too depressed by this uncertainty
about Paige not to mention its dis disagreeable

terested interested in anything."
"It is deuced queer you don't hear
from her, isn't it?" Tom felt called
upon to show a polite concern.
His friend sighed. "Since my cousin
is a woman," he said, "'queer' is not
the word. Her disregard for my and
Uncle Theodore's plans is just what
might have been expected; it is so
thoroughly feminine, as you would
know well enough if you had a will willful,
ful, willful, pretty cousin like Paige. But by
the same token I am no more resigned
to sit twiddling my thumbs, in this
bake-oven of a town until she chooses
to come home or at least let me know
about, when to look for her."
"Just the same," insisted Tern, "if
she was my cousin I'd be worrying."
"I am, Tommy for myself, though;
not for her. . But I was going
to say that we would better let this

But Tom Fhinney, once his head
was set, was not easily turned aside.

we have some reason to think that

"She says not. A man's money is

Tom, however, had never met Paige
Carew, who had lived most of her
twenty years abroad, and he had no
more tolerance for her opinion than
he had for anybody else's that did not
agree with his.
"They may be plotting to rob a
bank," he abruptly bent the talk back
to the paramount topic.
Van Vechten regarded him with a
far-away look.
"Or starting a dramatic school," he
added, "or condemning vivisection or
woman suffrage, or something equally

vice. advice. Sitting comfortably at a window
and waiting for whatever surprises our
House of Mystery may have to dis disclose,
close, disclose, is one thing; actively interfering
with something that does not in the
least concern us, is quite another. If
there really is any mystery, and it- is
to be dealt with at all, it calls for a
thin, keen blade, not a bludgeon."
"If that's some of your pink-tea wit,"
growled Tom, "a bludgeon is a mighty
good thing to have when you are deal dealing
ing dealing with crooks."
"Doubtless when the crooks do not
fight with rapiers. I'll give you a
chance to break even; you don't want
to owe me a hundred, I suppose?"
The troubled look, result of unwont unwonted
ed unwonted mental effort, was instantly erased
from the handsome boyish face.
"No, I don't. I'm on, if you're bet betting
ting betting nobody will show up at one."
"Either end you like. A hundred
says no man will enter thirteen-thir-teen
at one o'clock."
Which was very decent and accom accommodating

that he would have been rather sur surprised
prised surprised than otherwise if one o'clock
came and went without bringing a
fresh arrival. And there was another
arrival, and he was surprised very
much surprised. And Tom Phinney
lost his second wager, too, which, he
could ill afford to do.
This was the way of it it-It
It it-It was very close to one when they
resumed their seats. Alexander, with

patient disappointment, reported that
nothing at all had happened. Then
the clock struck the hour, and a taxi taxi-cab
cab taxi-cab whirled madly up and came to a
skidding 6top in front of Number 1313.
A lady hastily descended, a fashion fashionably
ably fashionably gowned lady, who fairly ran up
the steps; and before she had time
even to touch the bell the door swung
open and she darted through the open opening
ing opening and was swallowed up.
Tom was indignant and disgusted.
"Now what do you think of that!"
g;ving the exclamation the slangiest
sort of intonation. He was, of course,
thinking only of the outcome of the
But Van Vechten had not heard. The
instant the woman appeared at the top
of the 6toop until then the cab had
partially concealed her he startled
Tom into forgetfulness of his disap disappointment,
pointment, disappointment, by bounding from his chair.
At the same time he smothered an ex exclamation

late, was a good deal more indicative
of agitation and amazement than
Tom's had been.
"What the dickens!" Tom cried.
Van Vechten slowly sank back into
his seat again.
"I I thought for a moment," he
muttered vaguely. "If I did not posi positively

He left it uneaid, however. The cab
turned and departed, and the young
man sat staring in a perplexed way at
the closed door. It was as silent and
illegible as it had been for months,
the windows all as irresponsive, the
sooty facade as sphinxlike.
Tom was still contemplating his
friend in bewilderment.
"You didn't by any chance think it
was Miss Carew, did you?" he asked.
The other bent a startled look upon
"Paige? Heavens, no! Don't be a
blooming idiot. It was a young girl,
though. I couldn't see her face, but

I met Lillie Longman and whs intro introduced
duced introduced to her at a barn dance. I fell
head over heels in love with her at
once. There was some attempt at fan fancy
cy fancy costnme anions the girls, and Lillie
was dressed like an Indian girl, her
Ions black hair hanging below her
wMst. I knew scarcely any one there
and stood watching a set of dancers
who were doing h quadrille or some
other of those old fashioned square
dances. Lillie was bobbins about, feel feeling

locks, and all the while she was firing

After the dance I hnnted for some
one to Introduce me to Lillie and was
successful. The gir' had known I was
watching her in the dance, and every
one of her antics was for me. I wasn't
a dancing man and persuaded her to
sit out a dance with me. Then a nice
looking, dapper young fellow took her
for another dance, and I looked on
again This time her antics p-ere for
me all the same, but they were of an another
other another kind.. She flashed her eyes alter alternately
nately alternately at me and Into those of the fel fellow

to see through this feminine device
then, and it had its effect. Quite likely
It would hat worked Just ns well with
me If I had seen through it. When
girl wishes to attract and a fellow
wishes to be attracted it's the easiest
job In tbe world. -
It wasn't long before 1 was going to
see LIUie. She was an orphan and
lived with her grandmother, an old
lady deaf as a trolley car conductor
whose car is jammed full of strap
hangers. She was half blind too. But
she must ha ye heard by eontact. witb
substances if she didn't hear through
the air. and. as for seeing, the darker
it was the better chance she had of
distinguishing objects. She was like
other deaf and blind persons in that
respect. She couldn't see or hear what
she should see and hear, but had re
markable facilities for detecting what
was most inconvenient for others for
her to know.
About the time 1 made LiHie's ac acquaintance

en taken with her last Illness. Lillie loe
the old lady, and her approaching
demise was an affliction to the niece
As for me. I was but twenty-one vears
old and had years before m In which
to do courting, but so impatient was 1
that I grudged the old lady what little
time she needed from Lillie. I feared
I would i too old for matrimony be-
fore the invalid got into her grave and
ceased to require attention
Now th;it I look back on this period
I can see that 1 was very unreasonable.
I would go to the house and wait a
whole evenlug for Lillie while she re remained
mained remained upstairs with her grandmother,
hoping every minute that she could
come downstairs for a brief sitting
with me One evening when 1 had
waited a couple of hours in this way 1
concluded considering that the old wo woman

I tiptoed up the staircase and to the
door of the room, which fortunately
found ajar Lillie was sitting in a
chair where she could see me. She
came to tbe door, and I told her that
if she couldn't come to me 1 was bound
to go to her. She went back into the
room, turned the light very low and
beckoned me to enter. There was a
sofa pla-ed where the Invalid could
not very well see it. 1 stole toward It.
and Lillie and I sat down side by side
with our arms around each other.
We whispered more love than today,
at fifty. I could talk in a year. nd to
be heard by each other we scarcely
needed to whisper, for when I spoke
my lips touched her coral ear. and

anything. She replied that sbe thought

that she must be mistaken, put her
hand on the sick woman's head to
soothe her and told her she had better

Whether grandma was satisfied with
this or not she said no more, and Lii Lii-iie.

refrained. I took a pencil from my
pocket and some old letters and wrote
what I had to say very short sen sentences,
tences, sentences, in every one of which the word
"love figured consoicuously.
Men. instead of choosing, as is sup supposed,
posed, supposed, appropriate opportunities for
proposals, are quite likely to choose
tbe most unfitting. I was unable to
even whisper without being heard by a
deaf and dying old woman, and yet I
