against those whose sole and express
purpose is to destroy law and order.

state a chance to be heard from on
such a great question as national and
state highways. I favor good roads
and they can not be built without
bonds, and the only difference between
you and me, Mr. Editor, is that you
favored county bonds to meet state
obligations, and it being a state meas measure
ure measure I was in favor of state bonds to
meet state measures. Now, Mr. Edi Editor,
tor, Editor, you so vigorously worked for
countv bonds to meet state obliga obligations
tions obligations and did advocate $1,500,000
county bonds which failed, and then
advocated a $500,000 bond issue which
was adopted. I voted to put this be before
fore before the people before Marion county
bonds were adopted. Now, if the
county bonds had been turned down,
and it was good roads you really
wanted, you no doubt would have
been pleased with the opportunity of
appealing to the people of the state
for the adoption of the amendment to
the constitution, though you take
the privilege of censuring my vote
for giving you and the people this
opportunity to appeal to a last resort
for good roads.
You seemed to say that I coincided
with the automobile association. All
good roads are an asset to automo automobile
bile automobile associations, and it makes no dif difference
ference difference to them whether they are
built by state or county bond issues.
And as it is now, it's like the
spider said to the fly, we have the
prettiest bonds you ever did spy, and
it's a very easy thing for us to pick
the diamond out of the ring. If this
had been left to state officials yet,
we might not have had the privilege
to do any such thing.
You referred to the automobile as association,
sociation, association, railroads and other trusts

But the hole you are trying to drill

Star look like the New York Herald.
It is 'a well known fact that your
paper opposed the amendment to the
constitution in 1918 to authorize the
board of public instruction to levy if
needed a ten-mill tax to sustain the
school system of the county. And
now you refer to some of those
"stingy" counties that do not want
to' issue bonds for good roads, but
some of these counties are enjoying

MAKE WAR ON
From London comes the alarming
prophecy that mosquitoes, flies and
other disease-carrying insects may be
used for the dissemination of deadly
germs in enemy territory in "the next
war." The possibility of this and the
deadly results that would follow are
staggering to think of, says the state
board of health, and the peace time
danger is one equally as startling.
For this reason the state board of
health has taken up arms against
both the mosquito and the fly and is
fighting a rigid battle against their
prevalence in Floridai It is known
that flies multiply more rapidly than
any other known pest and are more
dangerous to human life than war,
therefore the state board of health is
asking every citizen of the state to
shoulder arms with it and fight.
The chief implement of war neces necessary
