A certain grouchy old newspaper
man of our acquaintance was prepar
ing to write an article, roasting the
tango and other dbwn to date dances
But one of the prettiest girls in Flor Florida

dances to him, and tho he knows his

that the tangoes and trots are mighty

portant part of that government, it
will probably have the same trouble
Huerta's government is having now
in being recognized. It was a very
unfortunate incident, and no matter
what provocation Villa had, he was
foolish to have Benton executed.
One of the things the Star is regret
ful about is that the United States
is not as prompt to protect its citi citizens
zens citizens abroad as Great Britain is.
There is not going to ibe as much
campaigning this year as there was
two years ago, and the newspaper
men are correspondingly depressed,
as there will not be so many fat,
juicy legs to pull. The sheriff, coun county
ty county clerk, county judge and superin superintendent
tendent superintendent of instruction, the fattest
offices ,in the, county, are safe, and
their incumbents view the newspa
per men with a tolerant smile. How
ever, Will Colbert, John Graham,
Aif Ayer and Jim Moorhead must go
before the dear (people, so Gilead is
not entirely destitute of balm.
The Star is not so sure that the
shooting of Benton by Villa's orders
will bring on war at once. If Villa's
taction of Mexicans had a seaport,
there is no doubt but that the Brit
ish would occupy it at once, and pos
sitly send a punitive expedition aft
er Villa. But, except along the Am
erican border, the constitutionalists
.are surrounded by federal territory.
Great Britain, of course, is not go
ing: to ask permission to send troops
thro Texas, nor is it likely that the
British government will try to force
the United States into war for such
sl comparatively small incident. It
3s reasonably certain, however, that
Great Britain will keep the matter
TjneTl in mind and insist on repara reparation
tion reparation from Mexico as soon as a re responsible
sponsible responsible government is established.
If Villa is either a head or any lm-
The Star regrets to say it has
caught its friend, Charlie Jones, in
the- act of contradicting himself.
In his letter published elsewhere,
Charlie says: "I have never charged
that Senator Fletcher was a party to
this (registering negroes to vote in
the white primary). In fact, I am
sure he was not."
In its editorial article which start started
ed started the discussion, Dixie said:
"Pleasant A. Holt is qualifying ne negroes
groes negroes to vote in the primary.
LMr. Holt is known as Duncan U.
Fletcher's most active lieutenant."
In a letter to the Star, published a
few days ago, Mr. Jones said:
'ttlr. Holt in his letter to the Star
says: 'I am not connected with Mr.
Fletcher's campaign in any sense.'
Then pray whose campaign is Mr.
Holt connected with? lie tells the
Star that he is sending out hundreds
of letters urging registration at once
and this registration is purely for
the coming primary in June."
If Mr. Jones did not intend to try
to connect 41 o It's alleged activity
with Senator Fletcher's campaign,
why did he try to raise a state-wide
disturbance about it? Why did he
call on papers all over the state to
expose and denounce Holt? If it is
only a local trouble in Duval county,
w?hy ask democrats from Pensacola
to Miami to take a hand.
M r. Jones, of course, can claim he
didn't "write the editorial, and that
he hasn't directly charged Senator
Fletcher with being a party to reg
istering and trying to induce negroes
to vote for him; but he charged it
by inference; there was no other in inference
ference inference to be drawn from what he
wrote, and no other impression was
created. He has tied himself in a
knot, and the only fair thing for him
to do is to acKnowledge that he has
made a mistake and done Senator
Fletcher a wrong; that he corrects
the one and apologizes for the other.
The Star should not have com commented
mented commented on the action of the Jack Jacksonville
sonville Jacksonville city council if the said ac action
tion action had not had a 'bearing on the
senatorial campaign. And it doesn't
think that either the said council,
Dixie or Mr. Stockton are such mag magnolia
nolia magnolia 'blossoms as to have suffered
greatly in their feelings over any anything
thing anything it has said about them.
Jacksonville, Feb. 20, 1914.
Editor Star: Recognizing that
spirit of fairness that has character characterized
ized characterized the owner and editor of the Star,
I was surprised at your editorial
charges of Dixie in the Holt matter,
which referred to the "unproven"
I not only proved that Mr. Holt
was addressing letters to negroes,
produced a photograph copy of one
of the letters which urged their reg registration
istration registration "now" and immediate regis registration
tration registration certainly meant for the com coming
ing coming primary.
I have never charged that Sena Senator
tor Senator Fletcher was a party to this. In
fact I am sure he was not. The Cit Citizens
izens Citizens League which met to act upon
Dixie's exposure was open to all Dem Democrats
ocrats Democrats and Senator Fletcher's name
was not used at the meeting. In
fact the invitation was extended to
all Democrats regardless as to whe whether
ther whether they were Fletcher or Stockton
IMr. Holt in open council charged
that "Mr. Stockton's committee"
wa3 seeking to investigate him
(Holt) because of his (Holt's) activ activity
ity activity for Senator Fletcher. This is not
true. :Mr. Holt is also exceedingly
anxious to elect a board of county
commissioners of Duval county. Just
why I do not know, but the tax-payers
do not want iMr. Holt to elect a
board so important as this.
Mr. Holt has said, and several of
his friends have called at the office
of Dixie and said, that .Mr. Holt had
started another campaign for the liq liquor
uor liquor interests and did not know that
the present registration could not be
used for any such purpose, and as
soon as he discovered this he drop dropped
ped dropped the liquor campaign. I give Mr.
Holt's excuse herewith in order to
take no advantage whatsoever of
There is no excuse for any white
Democrat working to register negro
votes and I am sure the Star is not
familiar with (Mr. Holt's work in this
city. I have called on Mr. Fletcher
to repudiate Holt because I know know-that
that know-that Mr. Fletcher does not approve
of negro politics. I write because
the Star has done an unintentional
injustice to Mr. Stockton and to Dix Dixie,
ie, Dixie, as Dixie has proved its charges
beyond any doubt and has more proof
along the same lines. The Star in
supporting Senator Fletcher should
not defend Mr. Holt nor criticize the
city council for its investigation of
iMr. Holt's methods.
Very truly yours,
Charles E. Jones,
iMgr., Ed. Dixie.

If the Reverend Mr. Smith had not

him to raise his voice so that it could
be heard across the porch and thru
the open windows of Miss Brown's

if he might not have employed the
