law prevails in each of these states.
The same was true under the law of
Spain and under the common law of
England, from whence our forefathers
came. It would therefore seem that
if any principle is fundamental in our
law it is the fact that every citizen,
big or little, old or young, rich or
poor, regardless of location, has a
right to the free and unrestricted
use, for boating, bathing, fishing and
commerce of all the lakes, rivers,
streams, harbors and other navigable
waters in this state.

AMERICANS WERE READY
A special from Coblenz to the New
York Times, dated June li, says:
This morning brought an unaccus unaccustomed
tomed unaccustomed sight to the Germans at the
Coblenz bridgehead. To their amaze amazement
ment amazement they could see an American
army quitting bivouac. Across the
fields for miles and miles they- saw
khaki "pup" tents, they saw horses
and mules tethered, they saw count countless
less countless Liberty trucks drawn up alone
the roads they saw an army ?eady to
push into the heart of Germany. Vil Villages

Americans saw their places filled
with thousands. And instead of good good-natured
natured good-natured youths seeking a chance to
snatch a sly word with some fraulein
they saw serious fighting men, armed
and ready to go again about the busi business

The Germans had heard that if
they refused to sign the Allies would
advance, but movement of our troops
brings home to them the stern reali realities

No one gives a very convincing ex explanation
planation explanation of why the movement of
our troops should begin six days be before

ahead, but that lack of explanation
does not change the fact that yester yesterday
day yesterday some 100,000 Americans quit
their soft billets and the surround surroundings
ings surroundings of the six months which have
passed since they reached the Rhine
and got on to the roads. And these
soldier lads brought back memories
of just a year ago, when they were
holding the Germans at Belleau Wood
and at Lethioulet. The dust flew in
clouds, automobiles dashed wildly
about, mule drivers cursed, soldiers
sweated, and it truly looked as if the
war had begun again.
After the six months these dough
boys have lived among the Germans
not a few have made friends at Cob
lenz. I went through many villages
yesterday where our soldier boys
were leaving, and I saw tears in the
eyes of more than one German girl as
she stood mutely watching the mov moving
ing moving troops. I heard some of the
older Germans say they were sorry to
see the Americans who had lived
among them depart. This sentiment
among the Germans grows out of
their having been better treated bv
the Americans than they were ever
treated by their own authorities. It
is not love of Americans in general,
but of our men they have known.
It seems to be the impression of a

They were unloaded in Palatka and
driven overland to Ocala. This com company

Dr. and Mrs. B. B. Todd are in the

where Dr. Todd has been in attend attendance

Todd, better known as "Ben," was one
of Ocala's best boys, and is now mak making

Atlanta. He was in the army during

There will be hot rolls and hot cin cinnamon

Mrs. Bennett's clever idea of invit inviting
ing inviting all the strawberry blondes to see
"Redhead" at the Temple last night
.was appreciated, but we really never
knew how few auburn-haired people
were in Ocala before. That is be because,
cause, because, we suppose, they get around
so lively that they seem to multiply.
The picture, like all those in which
Alice Brady stars, was a good one.
The feature tonight is Albert Ray in
"Married in Haste," with Mutt and
Jeff to add mirth to the occasion.
Mr. G. H. Kelley of Gainesville,
agent for the New Edison phonograph
for all of this part of the state, is in
ship or.uur citizens who fish or boat
f or sasure and on the hundreds of
od citizens of this state who make
childrenJjifceir living by fishing. Under the
act as above, all such beaches as
Pablo, Atlantic, Ormond and dozens
of others along our coast line, where
hundreds of our people go every year
for sport and pleasure during vaca vacation
tion vacation periods, would be taken from the
whole people and vested in the rip riparian
arian riparian owner. I do not believe that
our people want to surrender their
rights and privileges and become sub subject
ject subject to an act that makes it impossi impossible
ble impossible for them to get to the channel of
our streams and tide waters without
a flying machine, except on pain of
being trespassers. The supreme court
of the United States, in Pollard's
Lesee v. ciJagan, reported in 3 How Howard
ard Howard 219, in effect, held that these wa waters
ters waters and tide lands were the property
of the various states, their principal
use being for all the citizens thereof,
and that to undertake to convey the
same to individual ownership would,
in many instances, embarrass the
state in the enforcement of its police
There are many places along the
tide waters and streams of our state
where the distance from high water
mark to the edge of the channel runs
into miles, the intervening space be being
ing being mud flats or shallow bottoms that
are not valuable for boating, bathing
and fishing purposes, but in many
instances such mud flats and shallow
bottoms are becoming very valuable
for sub-division, island and filling-in
purposes. Such lands being the
property of all the people in common,
should not be given away for specu speculative
lative speculative purposes, as the late act seeks
to do, but should be sold and the
moneys received therefor placed to
the credit of the permanent school
fund of the state where all the people
would be benefited thereby.
In my judgment it would be just
as proper for the legislature to pass
an act giving to those persons who
happen to be adjacent owners to the
sixteenth section of school land, ever everglades
glades everglades land or other public lands be belonging
longing belonging to the state, the right to ex extend
tend extend their lines into such lands, as to
give water front owners exclusive
privilege to extend their lines from
high water mark out to the edge of
the channel and thereby, in many in instances,
stances, instances, donate to "them hundreds and
thousands of acres of mud flats and
shallow bottoms that never could
have been contemplated in their pur purchase
chase purchase of the uplands, and which in
the course of time, if properly con conserved,
served, conserved, could be made to yield mill millions
ions millions of dollars to the permanent
school fund of this state.
The law of this state amply pro protects
tects protects every riparian owner in his rip riparian
arian riparian ownership and all rights accru
ing therefrom, our supreme court
having recently said that such rights
are property rights that cannot be
taken from any citizen without du
process of law. No one could buy in
front of him or be permitted to fill-in
in front of him. He has the common
law rights as are above mentioned in
common with every other citizen of
the state in the waters in front of his
lands. Why now undertake to pass
an act giving him exclusive right to
such privileges at the expense of eve-

I consider these water bottoms and
privileges among the great and val valuable
uable valuable assets of the people of Florida
which should, in the main, be retain retained
ed retained for all the people of the state. As
counsel for the trustees of the intern internal
al internal improvement fund the state is my
client and I would certainly be dere derelict
lict derelict in my duty to sit silent when this
great asset was about to ,be parceled
out to a fortunate few. I might state
further that so far as a bill to con confiscate

ers owners may have in the water bottoms in
front of their lands, and about which
the Tribune has had so much to say
in the past two or three months, the
trustees of the internal improvement
fund nor their counsel know anything
about such act, and in fact it has al always
ways always been my understanding that
property rights could not be taken
without due compensation therefor.
This whole riparian agitation has
come from a few points over the
state where citizens have filled-in
and built on such water bottoms as
are above described, thinking that
they owned them under the act of
1856, as above referred to. Such a
presumption of ownership was inex inexcusable
cusable inexcusable for the reason that our su supreme
preme supreme court, in the Black River
Phosphate case, reported in 32 Flor Florida
ida Florida 82, 13 Southern 640, construed
every provision of the act in a very
able and elaborate opinion contrary
to such a view. I think, however, that
in the face of all of this, these citi citizens
zens citizens should be given some measure
of relief by the legislature. At the
same time I do not think it proper
that with the idea of doing this a
great public asset should be given
away or that the whole people should
have a hardship imposed on them for
