railroad commission was resumed.
There were a good many present" and
the interest was as keen as ever.
Coast Iiine Closed
Mr. Menzies, general traffic man manager

stand for a short time in the after afternoon,
noon, afternoon, most of his time being taken
up by Mr. Spencer on St. Petersburg
rates. It developed jthat the, rate
from Jacksonville to St. Petersburg
on first class was the 6ame as to
Ocala, but on classes lower than first
class, the rate to St. Petersburg is
lower. Tampa and St. Petersburg
were then compared and Mr. Men Menzies

is correct. He stated that the St.
Petersburg freight did not pass thru
Ocala, but went down the "main
line" on the west coast.
Pinellas People are Punished
Mr. G. E. Noblit, a hardware deal dealer
er dealer of Tarpon Springs, took the 6tand.
With, other Tarpon Springs and
Clearwater citizens, .he had come to
see if they could obtain any relief.
He stated that they were discrim discriminated

their rates were so much higher
than St. Petersburg that the St. Pe Petersburg

freight back, thirty miles, and still
beat them on the Jacksonville rate,

a government channel. Why did
they never use it for relief? Well,
they had, several times, but "some "something

wanted a promise from Mr. Menzies,
Aether if they should establish

Mr. H. 3. Kealhofer, traffic man manager
ager manager of the Jacksonville board of
trade, was then sworn, and the
Ocala part of the audience sat up
and wondered what was coming.
They were not long in suspense. Mr.
Kealhofer first explained what they
already knew and had heard ampli

magnificent rail and water transpor

these lines were so much lower

that Jacksonville's growth and com commercial

glory and joy forever to the little

6hared in this prosperity. He then
went on to explain that he was tak taking

points, that it was a "fight we would
have to make ourselves. But never nevertheless,

Well, Mr. Anderson, who owned

there was a general laugh with Mr.

he was one of those who pays the

him a compliment on Jacksonville
and its growth and prosperity, of
which he, like all other Floridians,
was proud. He scored him warmly
for coming into this fight of Ocala
and the interior for relief, knifing
us and helping the railroads.
Commissioner Dunn asked Mr.
Weathers at the conclusion of his
talk if he thought the commission
should enforce the long and short
haul law literally. He said it was
on the statute books and should be
enforced, and if it was not found to
be satisfactory after being tried, it
could be repealed.
Forceful evidence was given along
the same line by Messrs. J. E. Chace,
C. X. Kirkland, R. L. Keating and
Spencer Summed Up
Mr. Spencer then stated that he
had prepared an extended brief
upon the question that he would file
at the proper time before the com commission,
mission, commission, and that he hoped to be able
to make oral argument before the
commission on the proposition at
the conclusion of all the testimony.
He said that at this time he would
call the attention of the commission
to what he considered the law on the
question. Under the lawr it is nec necessary
essary necessary for the carriers to prove two
things: First, that where a low scale
of rates were maintained o any
point that the conditions at that
point, either of actual competition
or other conditions, warranted that
scale of rates. Second, that they
must show that the rates to the in interior
terior interior points along the same line that
were higher were not unreasonable
or unjustly discriminatory against
the interior points. He stated, fur further,

peace among communities and pre prevent

that for years Ocala had tried to en enlarge

that,, under the present rates it was
impossible, and that if the railroad
comniission found it impossible to

make such corrections as would tend
to aid business cf the interior rather
than to destroy it.

Mr. McMullen is undoubtedly cor

the opinion he has rendered. The
change in the boundry lines of an
election precinct, or the division of a
previously existing precinct into two

have not presented petitions for the
granting of license it follows that
permits to obtain license to sell liq liquors

liquors at some time since the 1st of

The effect of this in this county
will simply be, that after the expira

censes, will have to get up petitions
signed by majorities of the registered

Of course in the rural districts where

precincts as here at the present time

break their loneliness:

as far north as the forks, and any raid

"There ain't no red-skins down la

"How far have we come ?"
He spoke to the Delawares, and one

The river narrowed rapidly as we

already exhibiting a disinclination to

hold them by threats to their work.
