COLE BLEASE AND HIS CRITICS
Some of the Star's friends are
slightly peeved with it because it oc occasionally
casionally occasionally ventures to say a good
word for Cole Blease, the much as assailed
sailed assailed governor of South Carolina.
The Star does not pose as a cham champion
pion champion of Governor Blease. It is not
well enough acquainted with him,
and not enough interested in the is issues
sues issues that he and his critics differ
about to make any strenuous efforts
in his behalf. About its only reason
for semi-occasionally printing some something
thing something favorable to him is that he is
so universally abused by people and
papers that the Star knows can't
possibly know as much about him as
the Star knows. The Star is always
sorry for the under dog, and it never
saw an under dog yet but what had
some good points.
About the strongest reason the Star
has for not unqualifiedly endorsing
Blease is the attitude taken toward
him by the Columbia State, which is
one of the most independent papers
in South Carolina or any other state.
The Star is convinced that the State
would not oppose Blease without
reason, and that it wouldn't be un unfair
fair unfair to him for any reason.
However, there are many papers
published hundreds or thousands of
miles from Blease's home, and whose
editors can't possibly know anything
about him except the reports they
6ee in other papers, who attack him
with a bitterness and unfairness that
is entirely absent from the columns
of the paper published in the shadow
of the South Carolina state house.
The Star does not covet for Flor Florida
ida Florida a governor who would draw on
our state the adverse criticism that
Blease has drawn on South Carolina.
It doesn't approve of a number of
things he has done, but it saw no
use in criticising him when so many
other papers were working overtime
on the job.
One thing is certain, and that is
that Blease must have some virtues
or he couldn't have the hold on the
people of South Carolina that he has.
It has always seemed to the Star that
his faults were more those of an im impulsive
pulsive impulsive and hot-blooded man than
those of a craftily wicked one. In
this opinion it is borne out by the
testimony of some few of its friends
who personally know Cole Blease,
and ever- one of whom, by the way,
claim that he is a staunch friend to
his friends and a man with a never never-failing
failing never-failing sympathy to the unfortunate
a sympathy which is of course
bound to cause him to be often im imposed
posed imposed on, and to impose on others.
There are several governors in the
United States who have worse traits.
The Star hopes its friends will not
be peeved with it any more on ac account
count account of its attitude toward Gover Governor
nor Governor Blease. It is not his champion.
It simply declines to join in the hue
and cry after him by people and pa papers
pers papers most of whom know less about
him than the Star does.

hopes he will pursue a similar policy
In regard to another personal affair,
which has been, or may be, brought
before him from Marion county.
President Wilson paid a high hon honor
or honor to the state of Florida in his re recent
cent recent message. Two leading ques
tions to which he referred were rural
credits and insuring safety of life, at
sea. These are two public measures
in which Senator Fletcher is highly
interested. Of the first, he is vir virtually
tually virtually the principal promoter, as he
has taken the lead in trying to estab establish
lish establish the system and is chairman of
the committee that has it in. charge.
He has also been instrumental in in introducing
troducing introducing and pushing forward a
bill that has the greater safety and
better treatment of sailors as well as
passengers in view, and is a member
of a committee that will probably
enact the measure into law. It is a
fact that of the eleven pages of the
president's message, three are devot devoted
ed devoted to the work of commissions of
which Senator Fletcher is a member,
and of one of which he is chairman.
What senator of any other state has
won so much honor in the same space
of time for the commonwealth he
represents as Fletcher?
A deserved honor has been con conferred

of East Palatka. He has been elect elected

Be sure to read the report of the
light and water committee set forth
elsewhere in the proceedings of the
city council. Chairman Taylor is
particularly proud of-this report. It
is a good argument for municipal
ownership, and is also a testimonial
to the good management of the light
and water committees and the effi efficient

WHITE PRIM ART'
''It seems from the article in Dixie
that there has been some personal
controversy between the writer of
the article and Mr. Jordan. With
this personal difference I have noth nothing
ing nothing to do. The entire article seems
to be based upon the personal opin opinion
ion opinion the writer has of Mr. Jordan, the
idea that he is a reactionary and up upon

Mr. Jordan over some personal con controversy.
"During Governor Gilchrist's term
of office, Mr. Jordan was appointed
for a term of four years and his
term does not expire until August
11, 1915. At the last session of the
legislature a new pure food law was
enacted. In dealing with the ques question
tion question of inspectors in section 9 of
chapter 6541, it is provided that the
two inspectors who were at that
time in the service should hold of office
fice office until the expiration of the terms
for which they had been appointed.
Under Mr. Jordan's appointment and
under the act of the legislature of
1913, so long as he performs his
duty as an inspector he is entitled
to hold his office until the expiration
of his comminssiori on August 11,
1915. Mr. Jordan and other pure
food inspectors work under the de

I have received no complaint what

past ten years will clearly show that

democracy. On the other hand Mr.
Jordan may have been a reactionary.
Regardless, however of our different
political views, in dealing with him
as a pure food inspector, it is only
my duty to consider his services as
an official and the manner in which
he is performing his work. We may
differ politically. He has a right to
his opinions. I have a right to mine.
Yet this political difference would
not justify me nor make it right for
me to remove him on account of
some personal controversy he may
have gotten into, nor on account of
our political differences.

the law, just the same as a number

of his election would not make as

In Future of Citrus Culture Shown
by His Investments
Orlando Sentinel: When an ex experienced
perienced experienced citrus fruit grower and a
shrewd business man like Braxton
Beacham extends his holdings by in investing
vesting investing his surplus in more citrus
groves it may be taken as a good in
dication that he considers the invest
ment gilt edge.
Mr. Beacham is now preparing
eighty acres of land to be set to
grapefruit trees in January. He is
making his investment for his son,
B. Beacham, Jr. The land which is
being cleared and put in condition
for planting is of the high pine kind,
and is located at Forest City.
At Apopka Mr. Beacham will add
twenty-five or thirty acres to his
grove at that place, and the new
ground will be set to Valencias.
Mr. Beacham has at this time
about 175 acres of citrus fruit trees
in bearing. When the new groves
come in he will have over 300 acres
of bearing trees, and will be easily
one of the largest owners of citrus
fruit property in the state. He al- i

To the Voters of the Third Ward:
On my return from a business trip to the East Coast I found that
ray name had been placed on the ticket for alderman from this ward with without
out without rny knowledge. I thank my friends for the honor thus conferred apon
me; 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
iness 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.
SEWERAGE SYSTEM AND STREET BUILDING. From the infor information
mation information I have on the subject of sewerage disposal, I shall favor the per perfecting
fecting perfecting of our present sewerage 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 tracSs 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
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 go'od representative in the city
council, it is up to you to elect me. tI 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 projection
and equal rights as other citizens in the same line of business

DO TO BETTER THE
The following was read at a meet meeting

by Mary E. Woodward, and is pub published

To be a woman in the true and
highest sense of the word, to better
the condition of our men, is to be
the best thing beneath the skies. It
should be the highest ambition of
every woman to possess a true wo womanhood.
manhood. womanhood. A woman's worth is to
be estimated by the real goodness of
her heart and the greatness of her
soul and the purity and sweetness of
her character. Beautj' is a danger
ous gift that is sometimes bestowed
on woman; like wealth, it has ruined
its thousands. Thousands of the
most beautiful women of today are
destitute of common sense and com common
mon common humanity. No gift from heaven
is so general and yet so widely abus abused
ed abused as, the gift of beauty. Beauty is
lovely and ought to be innocently
possessed; it has its charms and
it rightly used would enhance the
condition of our men. It is a de delightful
lightful delightful gift and cught to be received
with grace and meekness. Every wo woman
man woman who has a beautiful form and
feature should cultivate a beautiful
mind and heart.
I believe that a woman by her con constant

her influence over the ccuJitipn of

condition of our men that are wor-
thy of cultivation. The first is pur-
ity. Not only purity of life is need needed
ed needed to make woman beautiful, but
purity in thought, feeling, emotion
and motive. All that is within us
that lies open to the gaze of God
should be pure. A woman should
be in heart what she seems to hejn
life. Her words should correspond
with her thoughts; the smiles of her
face should be the smiles of her
heart; the liht of her eyes should
be the light of her soul. Whatever
may be our mental attainments we
are nothing without purity. The
second element that I will speak of
to better the condition of our men, is
benevolence. A woman without be benevolence
nevolence benevolence is not a woman she is
only a deformed personality of wo womanhood.

more beautiful than in the woman's;
the most benevolent soul lives near nearest
est nearest to God. How benevolent is wo woman
man woman on errands of mercy, how sooth soothing
ing soothing her words to the disconsolate
man, how soft her hand to the sick.
The woman who does practical work
of benevolence is educating her mor moral
al moral powers in the school of earnest
and glorious life. Her hand must
be taught to heed the pleadings of
her pitying heart what sh-e feels,
she must do. what she prays for she
must strive to attain.
The last element I shall speak of
to better the condition of our men, i3
piety. This may be regarded as the
crown of all the moral elements; it
is that which sanctifies all the
rest of the influences wrought In the
human soul. The work of piety is
the most harmonizing and divine.
We urge it 'as the best and highest
duty of woman, a duty ehe owes to
herself and to God. a duty as full of
jcys as the heavens are full of stars.
This divine grace of the soul should
be sought for by every woman and
cultivated with assiduous care, for
without it she is destitute of the
highest beauty and divinest charms
to better the condition of our men.
Let ever' woman seriously reflect
on this subject. The.e girls and

The Face in the Crowd.
Up to the present moment the two
young men had been confronted only
by, a series of mystifying incidents,

morning's queer events borne any
especial significance whatsoever.
But here, in the twinkling of an eye,
was tragedy stark and grim. Only a
minute or two ago and this man was
pulsing with the perfect vitality of
young, vigorous manhood; now the

arrival. He stooped and turned up the
man's face, and a thin crimson line
could be seen staining the left temple.
The features were composed, as if
death had been kind and mercifully
"Slugged," was the officer's senten sententious

shot a glance round the crowd. "Who
saw this done?" he roughly demanded.
Nobody replied; only an uneasy stir stirring

to into silent immobility; and the blue-coat,
as usually happens in such cases,
sought to cover with rudeness his in
competency to handle the situation.
It was at about this juncture, Van
Vechten forever afterwards remem
bered, that he first became aware of
the face. He was standing behind
Tom, a bit to his left, and opposite the
alley mouth. His entire attention, nat
urally enough, up to this time had
been absorbed by the ugly scene at his
feet. It was all the more strange,
therefore, that his mind should have
been attracted and held elsewhere,
even temporarily. But nevertheless,
all at once he experienced an indefin
able, irresistable impulse to glance up
ward at a certain point in the ring of
onlookers. And his regard came to rest
upon a particular face,
Straightway he became sensible of
an unfamiliar thrill, an abrupt quick quickening

not in the least account.
Perhaps he would have looked away
again at once had there not come to

far out of the ordinary. The present
circumstances might in a measure ac account

but not for the despair, the terror,
which seemed gradually to be chilling
the face's owner into a statue of ice.
The face. Van Vechten told himself,
was reflecting emotions of a depth and
potency for which the man's death
alone was wholly inadequate to ao-

something beyond and behind the life lifeless

It was a girl's face. It was refined
and delicate of contour, and was
framed in a nimbus of wavy midnight
hair. It was, moreover, a strikingly
beautiful face even hauntingly beau beautiful,

And now he discovered, suddenly,

Van Vechten turned his attention
to the man with something like resent

a reason he did not attempt just then
to explain, made him angry. As far
as attire went, the man was present presentable

over this strange bit of byplay, his en engrossing

beauty, was broken rudely in upon by
a sudden confused movement .of the
crowd. With clanging bell and a
noisy clatter of iron-shod hoofs upon
the asphalt, a police ambulance drew
up at the alley. Phinney and Van Vech Vechten
ten Vechten were jostled with the others, and
the latter's attention was distracted
from the girl and the sandy-haired man.
He watched a second officer and the
young surgeon leap nimbly down; the
first to join his comrade in holding
the crowd in check, the other to ren
der such aid to the stricken man as
any faint indication of life might call
for. The motionless figure, however,
was beyond the reach of any surgeon's
skill; it required but a cursory inspec inspection

Van Vechten saw, hazily, the young

man's temple, and lay the tip of a fore

left ear, the while he talked in under undertones
