Sure to Bring Great Trouble to the
Country, Particularly, to

Washington, Feb. 25. Diplomatic
muzzling of the Japanese question
was swept aside and Japanese labor
was pointed out as a "menace to the
whole United States" by Anthony
Caminetti, commissioner of immigra
tion", before the committee recently..
"Japanese settlements throughout
California, Oregon and Washington
are steadily increasing," Caminetti
asserted, "despite official statistics
the past few years stating the num number
ber number of Japanese in this country was
diminishing. I sincerely believe in
California they are double the num
ber they were six years ago. This
means they are coming in illegally.
"Japanese become acclimated in
this country to every sort of climate
we have, so that today they consti
tute a direct menace not merely to
the Pacific coast states, but to the
whole country," he said.
Caminetti was giving his sanction
to Hindu exclusion legislation when
he was drawn aside to talk of the
"In my judgment," he said, "there
are at least 30,000 Hindus in Call
fornia, although there are but 6,-
656 legally residing in the Pacific
coast states. They started coming
in 1890, when only fifteen arrived,
but it is the same with the Japanese
and Chinese.
"We had better deal with the Hin
dus before they arrive -by the hun
dreds of thousands. When you open
our doors you throw down the bars
to 350,000,000 people?,and you are
going to have them occupy a great
part of your south central section, as
well as the Pacific coast. This kind
of immigration is a menace to our
coast and to the South as well."

To be Decided Later Which of Our

Jacksonville, Feb. 25 It has been
announced that one of the regiments
of National Guard troops from this
state will go to Greenville, S. C, for
maneuvers this year. It is the turn
of the Second Regiment to make the
trip, but owing to the fact that thai
organization has but nine companies
at the present time it Is doubtful
whether or not it will be selected.
The First Regiment has but eleven
companies. Neither is complete and
for this reason officers of the guard
are speculating upon what the result
is to be. One whole regiment may
be made of parts of thetwo and the
result sent to Greenville, but at the
present time no one is able to say
just what is to happen.
In April there will be a federal in

Many Farmers Do Not Appreviate
Government Efforts to Help
Them Save Money
Berlin, Fla.. Feb. 24, 1914
Mr. David Kirkland:
Dear Sir: I have read your arti article
cle article on demonstration work and its
results in California and the same
is applicable in Marion county.
To illustrate this. The farmers
almost lost their entire crop of oats
last year. I took the matter up with
the department to see if something
couldn't be suggested to prevent
this. The- department forwarded me
some two hundred circulars, giving
instructions how to treat the oat
seed, just as they treat wheat seed
in the west to prevent rust and
smutt. I handed and mailed out
some two hundred of these circulars,
but find only a small percentage,
possibly eight or ten, who used it,
and' now the oats are beginning to
show signs of rust, but it's too late.
I asked one very intelligent farm farmer,
er, farmer, some few weeks ago, if he treat treated
ed treated his oat seed before planting. His
reply was: "He was in a hurry and
didn't have time or the money." But
when I told him the Formaline
wouldn't have cost him over three
cents per bushel to have treated his
oats, he was perfectly surprised.
It showed conclusively that he had
not even read the instructions. The
government is trying to help the
farmers, but we are skeptical and
think these instructions are theoreti theoreti-cal
cal theoreti-cal and not practical.
I will have in a few days, a lot of
farmer's bulletins. No 243, on fungi fungicides

the Star's opinion that the usefulness
as a port of Palatka, sixty miles
nearer than Jacksonville, has only
begun, instead, as some think, ended.
The Star believes that ocean steam steamers
ers steamers will tie up at the Palatka docks
in years to come, and fast launches

will go and come with cargoes all

thru the "Oklawaha and upper St. j

too friendly to the idea of the gov government
ernment government appropriating money by
wholesale for good roads building.
It has been the recognized policy of
the nation for the general govern government
ment government to look after the rivers and
harbors and to let the states and
counties look after their own roads,
and the Star can see no reason why
this shouldn't continue. The policy
of having the government do every

thing is becoming entirely too prev prevalent,
alent, prevalent, and if it keeps on increasing
in proportion, it will become impos impossible
sible impossible in a few more years to fill a

Times Union: March 1 the Sea Seaboard
board Seaboard Air Line railway expects to
put into effect a dairy-products tariff
rate, .for the purpose of encouraging
the shipment of milk and cream to
Jacksonville and Tampa, from the
farm sections of the state.
Agricultural Agent a. P. Fant
states that there have already been
promised 250 gallons daily from Tal Tallahassee
lahassee Tallahassee to Jacksonville, and that
the farmers all along the lines of the
Seaboard have been interested in the
new plan,, and have promised to turn

their attention more largely to the
production of milk for market.
Under the new proposed milk and
cream rates, dairymen can ship, at
a profit, their milk and cream to any
town or city furnishing the market;
and' schedules will be so looked into
that shippers can send to Jackson Jacksonville
ville Jacksonville by the early morning trains and
get back the empty cans that night.
The tariff proposed to be put into
effect will cover, in the one charge,
both the shipment of milk or cream
and the return of the empty cans.
Studied Needs of City
!Mr. Fant states that his company
has made a study of the needs of this
city .especially, and has found that
many gallons of milk are being
daily shipped here from Georgia,
Tennessee and from as far north as
New York. He has sounded out the
farmers along the lines of his road
and finds they are only waiting to be

shown a market which can be reach reached,

them a profit, and a schedule they

Injection of Fluoresein yVill Te If Abso Absolutely
lutely Absolutely Whether Any Life Remains

A remarkable new method of test testing
ing testing absolutely whether a person is
really dead and thus avoiding the pos possibility
sibility possibility of premature burial, just an announced
nounced announced by Doctor Icard. -of Marseil Marseilles,
les, Marseilles, has been received with great in interest
terest interest by his colleagues in Paris.
Doctor Icard's system depends on
the question whether the blood is still
in circluation or not, and consists of a
subcutaneons injection of a small
quantity of fluoresein, which is quite
harmless, but one of the most violent
coloring matters known.
If there be the slightest motion of
the blood the fluoresein, carried around
the body, staines it a vivid golden
yellow, while the eyes become a deep
emerald green. If, on the other hand,
there is no movement of the blood the
coloring matter is not dispersed, and
produces no effect. Half an hour is
stated to be enough to make this, test.
The laity, -while duly impressed by
this neat method, are asking whether
persons who are alive and undergo
the dyeing process, and who. later re
cover, will lose the golden yellow tint
and the green eyes, "which; as Doc Doctor
tor Doctor Icard describes them, "are "trans "transformed
formed "transformed into superb emeraldsset like
jewels in their sockets." i'i '- i
It may be added, however, ; $ that
fluoresein is one of the most., transi transitory

"Konx Ompax."
Thomas Jefferson Hogg,' the humor humorist,
ist, humorist, once proved beyond a doubt that
an old fragment of classic jargon still
preserved a certain magical pber to
soften the savage breast.
One day, as he walked hear Covent
Garden, an Irish laborer fancied Hogg
had pushed him, and turned upon the
young Oxonian, who was alone, with
angry abuse. A number of bystanders
quickly gathered to see what promised
to be a row.
Hogg turned upon the Irishman. "I
have put my hand into the hamper,"
he began, with calm severity; "I have
looked upon the sacred barley; I have
eaten out of the drum; I have drunk,
and was well pleased; I have said
Konx ompax, and it Is finished!"
"Have you, sir?" said the Irishman,
thoroughly mystified and appeased.
A woman in the crowd said "Now,
Pat, what have you had?" Others
called out, "What is It Paddy has
had?" Hogg turned solemnly away,
and left the bewildered Irishman to
get out of hi3 scrape as best he could.

Oklawaha Route is Too Slow in His
Kendrick, Feb. 24, 1914.
Editor Star: Permit me -to sug suggest
gest suggest to the people along the Oklawa Oklawa-ha
ha Oklawa-ha river to petition Congress to di direct
rect direct the pending appropriation for
the river to a vitrified brick road
to run from Leesburg to Silver
Springs, Orange Springs on to Palat-
ka, 6kirting the river country. This,
in my opinion, would be abreast of
the times.
The rapid development of the gas
and electric means of transportation
in the uast ten years teaches us that
slow river movement is a thing of the
past. The passengers want fast
time;' the fruit and vegetable pro
ducts of this state demand rapid
movement to market.
With long brick lines, gas ami
electricity are today strong competi competitors
tors competitors of railroads in passenger, mail
and express traffic; they now have
the Toads beat on time and price. All
needed is the brick roads to do busi busi-nes
nes busi-nes on.
A man in this day wants to get on
wheels or wings. Invention and pro
gress have made .life too fast and.
short to float down a river the "has
beens" of life might as well be laid
aside and face the conditions of to today
day today and the prospective future.
Looking at the rapid improve improvements
ments improvements of means of locomotion in the
past few' years we cannot be too ad advanced
vanced advanced in meeting the future. I
made the trip from Palatka to Silver
Springs 25 j-ears ago, and then came
to the conclusion that nature did not
intend the Oklawaha river as a
means or transportation.
With the facts before us why
make it any longer a useless dump dumping
ing dumping hole for government money that
is needed for what we all know is a
public blessing, good roads.
It will 'be bad on our congressional
candidates to be deprived of this
long used route to Washington, but
the time has come when they must
get out of the little crooked rivers
and lagoons and talk national aid
for brick roads and motor mail car
service for the old star route hack
and' pony. In .this day and time
things "do move." A fellow has to
hump to keep up, and needs a brick
road to do his humping on.

parts of the state have been asked
to keep records on their shipments
for a period of ten days and to sub-
mit the results'to this league so that
we may accumulate considerable
data from which to determine the
effects of the changes, and if neces necessary

ah interstate commerce hearing. The

must have data on every shipment

feelings. There was just one possible
way of winning Kirk back, and if in

undoing what she had mistakenly
done. As soon after breakfast as she

however, and when she emerged from
his house she ordered the coachman to
drive directly to the Garavel bank.
This time she stayed longer, closeted
with the proprietor. What she told

panic. It seemed that Anibal Alfarez
was by no means so well reconciled to
the death of his political Mopes as had
been supposed. On the contrary, in

and had perfected the preliminaries of

That afternoon Kirk received a for formal

which filled him "with dismay. It ran:
My Dear Mr. Anthony To my extreme
distress, I hear a rumor that Gertrudis Is

he read. What the letter signified, be beyond

changed his mind, he could not make
out, and he resolved to go at once and
demand an explanation. But at the
bank he was told that the proprietor
had gone home, and he drove to the
house only to learn that Seor Garavel
and his daughter had left for Las Sa Savannas

back through the city he urged his
driver, across the bridge and out along
the country road.
Darkness had settled when he re returned,
turned, returned, raging at the trickery that had
been practiced upon him. If they
thought to gain their point by sending
him on wild goose chases like this they
were greatly mistaken. He proposed
to have Chiquita now. If he had to
burst his way to her through barred
doors. He had yielded to their left

was time now to show his strength.
What folly he might have committed
it is hard to tell, but he was prevented
from putting any extravagant plan
into operation by a message from the
girl herself.
As he dismissed bis coachman and
turned toward his quarters Stephanie
came to him out of the shadows.
"Chiquita is at the house. She wants
to see you."

"Of course she does. I knew this
wasn't any of her doing. I've been J
hunting everywhere for her." j
"At I) o'clock she will be in the Tlaza.
You know the dark place across from
