Paid for Their Cotton
Washington, Jan. 23. Before the
House committee on war claims, of
which Representative Gregg, of Tex Texas,
as, Texas, is chairman, Representative
Frank Clark, of Florida, yesterday
made a vigorous plea for the passage
of his bill to return to the South the
funds derived from the odious cotton
tax imposed in the sixties.
There were four acts, ami the total
tribute levied on the South was about
68,000,000. Clark argued that a
great and strong government like
that of the United States, should now
Zo the simple justice of returning
this money to the original persons
who .paid it, -where they are alive,"
and to their heirs, if dead, if neither
original payers nor heirs are alive
the reimbursement, he argued, should
go to the states.
Under this plan the reimburse
ment to Florida individuals and to
the state in lieu of individual claim claimants,
ants, claimants, would be between $2,000,000
and $3,000,000. Tho committee
gave Clark an attentive hearing but
announced no decision.

First Annual Meeting of a nourish nourishing
ing nourishing Institution
The stockholders of the Metropol Metropolitan'
itan' Metropolitan' Savings Bank, the big and
flourishing institution established
last fall by prominent colored busi business
ness business men of the county, held their
first annual meeting Tuesday night.
Most of the stock was represented,
and the full list of directors and of officers
ficers officers was present.
At the meeting of the stockhold stockholders
ers stockholders the same board of directors was
re-elected and the board in turn, re reelected
elected reelected the same officers for the en ensuing
suing ensuing year.
Since the first of January, the
bank has been operating under its
charter as the Metropolitan SaVings
Bank of Ocala with a fully paid up
capital of $25,000. The bank owns
the handsome three-story brick block
in which it is located, is gathering
in deposits both in its savings and
checking account departments, from
Ocala and all over the county and
"many of them from remote parts of
the state. There is no other colored
bank in the state, as far as we know,
and there is certainly none south of
Jacksonville. They are educating and
encouraging the people of their race
to save their money and at the same
time are paying those people 4 per
cent interest on their savings.
When the Star reporter, a few
days since, asked the cashier of the!
bank how it was doing, he said that
had been its best day, as far as- de deposits
posits deposits was concerned; that it was
gaining steadily daily and that on
this particular day ten new deposits
came in and two or more new ones
were put on the books every day.
This bank is complying with every
sfate banking law, has been and will
continue to be examined by the state
bank examiners and is observing all
the state and national legal holidays
just like the other banks of the city,
though It may look a little strange to
Northerners to see a bank in the
South, owned entirely by colored
men, observing General Robert E.

INVOKE PULPIT'S AID

Children Next Sunday
Jacksonville, Jan. 23. J. C. Pru-

the following message to the press:
Next Sunday, January 25th, will
De set apart by the National Child
Labor, Committee as Child Labor
The clergymen thruout the
country have ben requested to have
either the morning or evening ser services
vices services devoted to a discussion of the
different phases of the child labor
question. The services conducted
along these lines last year proved ex exceptionally
ceptionally exceptionally interesting.
It has been suggested that each
minister take up one of the different
subjects, such as child labor in the
factories, in the home, commonly
classed as sweat shops, where the
work is carried from the factories to
he home, the evils confronting the
boys in the messenger service, the
street' trades, the department store
employment, the stage life, the girl
worker who is required to work late
at night, the need of a compulsory
education law, and the importance of
having the present child labor laws
of the state properly enforced.
The state of Florida has been far
behind other states in passing laws
for the benefit of its children, but at
the last session of the legislature,
after being bitterly fought and
amended by the opposition we were
instrumental in securing the present
law, which provides for an age limit
of twelve years in stores, offices and
transmission of messages; a fourteen
year limit in mills, factories, work workshops,
shops, workshops, laundries and theaters; a six sixteen
teen sixteen year limit in factories unless
the employer keeps on file employ
ment certificate approved by the
county 1 superintendent of schools,
giving jdate of birth, days attended
j etc.; an eighteen year old
limit uon messenger boys after 10
at night and before 5 a. m.; a twen
ty-one year limit upon employes
working in connection with saloons. J
The new law also establishes a nine-
hour day for all employes, and not
over 54 hours in any one week.
All minister of the city aire re requested
quested requested to take one of the subjects
or discuss some phase of the evils of
child labor during one of the services
next Sunday, so that the citizens of
Ocala will realize the necessity of
the enactments and proper enforce enforcement
ment enforcement of the new law, thereby aiding
in increasing the school attendance
and making the children of the state
more useful and better citizens.
FRIENDS OF THE BIRDS
WORK FOR THEIR FREEDOM
The keeper of a Tampa bird store
was recently arrested for selling and
exposing for sale mocking-birds and
red birds (cardinals), which is
against the law in every state in the
The evidence was procured by an
officer of the Florida Audubon So Society
ciety Society who entered the store and
bought a red bird, and then went to
the judge of the county court and
swore out a warrant for the man's
arrest for selling the bird.
An incident similar' to this occurr occurred
ed occurred last fall when a bird dealer in
Ybor City was arrested for the same
offense and upon evidence obtained in
exactly the same way. In this case
the offender was found guilty and
fined in the criminal court.
The Audubon Society is deter determined
mined determined to stamp out this traffic in
song birds, which still persists to a
certain extent throughout the state,
and which is causing some of our
song birds, particularly the cardinal,
to become very scarce. A represen
tative of the Florida Audubon Socie
ty further states that the cardinals,
mocking-birds and other native song
birds are one of the most important
assets of our state on account of the
interest and pleasure they afford us
by their sweet wild music. It would
be hard to estimate the actual value
k)f these birds upon this basis, but
considering also their economic
value, it would be safe to say that
each one of these birds, if allowed its
life and liberty, is' worth $2 00 to our
state, but is worth comparatively
nothing dead or in a cage. When a
tourist buys one of these birds, the
local bird dealer gets $4 or $5 from
the transaction, but how much does
the state lose? Moreover, this loss
is even greater than is apparent be because

The Florida Audubon Society
wishes to emphasize that it is not

those wild freedom-loving creatures,
but it is folly to do so; for if un unmolested,
molested, unmolested, they would be free to
breed and multiply, and would then

melodies melodies far more sweet

The train was two hours late in
reaching Richmond Junction, and
and when it was discovered there
that we must wait another thirty
minutes for the eastbound express,
relates the Pittsburg Dispatch, a
young man getting more and more
nervous appealed to the conductor
"Have you any idea when we shall
reach Buffalo, sir?"
"Xot much, but I hope to make it
by 10 o'clock this evening."
"Great Scott! Not until 10
o'clock!" asked the young man.
"It may be half an hour earlier,
but I don't count on it. Anything
to hurry you?"
"I should remark! I was to be
married at seven o'clock!"
"And it's after seven now! Well,
I can't help it. You might telegraph
that the train is delayed."
"I'll have too, but what a mess!
The guests will be assembled, the
girl in hysterics and her father on
his high horse. I wouldn't hate had
this happen for $1,000."
"No? Well, run in and telegraph."
The young man entered the office
and sent a dispatch, and just as we
were pulling out he received an
answer. Several of us who had over overheard
heard overheard the talk and knew what he
was expecting.' He read the message
twice over and then laid it down on
the floor and arranged his overcoat
for a pillow and apparently went to

"Annie," and it read:

his sleep and smiled as he snored.

readily accorded this, for there was

inhumanities and injustices of the

sympathy for those who came be before

in proportion to the advantages of

It cannot be forgotten that Judge
Speer is the man who brought the
rich Gaynor and Green back from
Canada, despite the lavish use of
their spoils filched from the people
and punished them with prison
He tried and convicted the Naval
Stores Trust which had for years
collected unlawful tribute from the
producer and consumer alike. The

have compelled great railroad sys systems

have punished them for violaiops of'

good works that will go far toward
offsetting any findings that the pres present

If Judge Speer has deceived the
people and has been deliberately
guilty of continued misfeasance in
his position, then he should most
certainly be removed. But the peo people

A limitless, oily sea stretched out
before his bewildered eyes. He touch touched

In a vain endeavor to collect his
thoughts. lie recalled the incidents
of that wild night and began to have
a disquieting doubt. Did that chance
meeting with the chap from St. Louis
have anything to do with his presence
here, or had he really decided in some
foolish, drunken whim to take a trip to
Central America? fie recollected that
Jefferson Locke had not impressed
him very favorably at the start.
The sound of a bugle, which Kirk
interpreted as-an invitation to break breakfast,

He departed, shaking his head as if
this were a form of insanity he had
never before encountered. A moment
later Kirk followed him and made a
round of tbe deck, staring at each man
he met and mentally estimating the
girth of his neck. Then he made his

at least, from his quest- She was well
above the usual height, quite slender,
yet of an exquisite rounded fullness,
while her snug fitting tailor made gown
showed the marks of taste. Kirk let
his eyes follow her. then retraced his
way around the deck in the hope of
meeting her face to face.
But when they had met and passed
he went his way vaguely disappointed.

The day was warming up. and on
the sunny side of the ship the steamer
chairs were filling. Two old men were
casting quoits; a noisy quartet was
playing sbuffleboard. After Idling back
and forth on deck for a time Kirk se selected

"Do you wish this chair for the voy voyage,

"Yes. I think so."
"I'll put your name on it."

rustle of skirts close by and saw the

man to realize that out of all the chairs

Then the purser appeared. "Did you

The purser grunted.
"And. say!" Kirk ran on seriously.
"I've been all over your little ship, but

wear this collar any longer."
"And I can't find any baggage of

"Well. sir. now that 1 come to think

handing it to the purser, said: "I want
