Mr. Hampton Explains Why the Cap Capitol
itol Capitol Extension is Not Moving
A reporter for the Star called on
Mr. H. M. Hampton today in regard!
to the capitol extension suit. Mr.
"I have repeatedly urged the attor attorney
ney attorney general to prepare his pleadings
and let us have a proper hearing on
the merits of the case. This the at attorney
torney attorney general's office is declining to
do, and seems disposed to delay the
hearing as much as possible. I have
just written Judge Gaines, assistant
attorney general, about it, and the
follo.wing is my letter to him:
" 'Ocala, Fla., Feb. 3, 1922.
" 'Hon. J. B. Gaines,
" 'Assistant Attorney-Geenral,
"'Dear Judge: I have your letter.
I was in hopes you would file your de demurrer
murrer demurrer and, let us advance the case so
that the matter might be heard in a
proper way. I cannot see any reason
to delay it, but of course, if you de desire
sire desire to insist upon the rules, I have
no right to ask otherwise; but as it is
a matter of public concern, and in
view of the fact that if the contract
is illegal, the state officials will be
liable on their bonds, you of course
will have the burden of delaying it
upon your shoulders. Personal it
does not make any difference to me
except that I would like to have it
out as early as possible. I prefer not
to make an application and have the
court simply pass on the question of
injunction without deciding on the
equity of the case.'
"We are anxious to push the case,
but they have said to us that they
would not file any pleadings, and we
think the matter, being one of extreme
importance to all the people of the
state, ought to be heard upon the
question f the equity involved, and
not upon mere technicalities, because
the complainants might not be able
in the first place to show themselves
entitled to a temporary restraining
order, although the court upon final
hearing would grant an injunction, as
these matters depend entirely upon
different conditions. There may be
equity in the bill, and the complain complainants
ants complainants ultimately entitled to relief, and
yet not be able to make a showing for
a temporary restraining order; the
entire delay is caused by the refusal
of the state officials to join in an effort
to have a speedy hearing. To make
it plain, I feel quite sure that the
state officials do not want the case
brought to a hearing, because they
feel confident that the court will over overrule
rule overrule a demurrer and thereby the equity
of the bill will become established
against them, for if they felt other
wise they would all be more than will
ing to hurry up the hearing. Under
the rules of the court they have until
March to answer or demur, and the
complainants are powerless to compel
them to do so earlier."

Slump in Markets Caused Decrease In
Value of Products of Tillers
Of Florida Soil
Gainesville, Feb. 4. A decrease in
the value of Florida farm products
for the year 1921 is declared by the
federal bureau of markets and crop
estimates here to be the feature of
the agricultural situation in this state
last year. The value of all crops last
year was a little over $50,000,000
against $73,000,000 for 1920 and more
than $89,000,000 for 1919. The bureau
declares production was about the
same each year but the decreased
value was due to a slump in markets.

The public had supposed that if its
regulation of railroads was ever to
succeed it must be done by experts.
But a few days ago, a senator arises
in his place in the United States Sen
ate and tells us that we have been on
the wrong track, and that we have had
too many experts employed in this
work of rate making; and to express
to that august body, and thus to the
world, a protest against an outrage
committed by our trained experts upon
a man at Cocoa, Florida, because this
victim of oppression, as the result of
our expert's work, had been obliged to
pay $500 freight, per car, from Cocoa
to New York on his oranges, while he
only paid $400 freight on a car of his
automobiles shipped to him .there from
Detroit. Hence the outrage.
This outrage and the dignity of that
Senate, which gave ear to the sena

contrast of by-gone days in the his

rests the fate of the greatest nation

J many grieved to hear of the death of
Mr. John S. Conway, a well-known
citizen of Syracuse New York andjreturned by

for a number of years.
John S. Conway, aged forty-eight,
was a lawyer and capitalist, and pres president
ident president of the Syracuse Cold Storage
Company. He has been a close friend
of Mr. D. E. Mclver of this city, and
his wife was a Miss Martha Mann, a
cousin of Mrs. Mclver. It was in Mr.
Conway's house in Syracuse that Miss
Frances Mclver made her home while
in the north a number of months ago,
and when death robbed the little girl
of her beloved mother. Mrs. Conway
was her immediate and sympathizing
comforter. Beside Mr. Mclver, Mr.
Conway had a number of sincere
friends here. He came to Ocala al almost
most almost every winter to mingle with
these friends and enjoy hunting trips
with them, and it was on a hunting
trip that he died.
Mr. Conway, with several friends,
Messrs. Fred G. Millerand and Carl
Winhauser of Syracuse, Mr. C. E.
Wilson of Geneva, N. Y., and Henry
Livingston of this city, beside several
servants, was camped near the home
of Saul Lewis, colored, about ten
miles southwest of Ocala, and near
the Dunnellon road. Saul Lewis, by
the way, has been acting as a guide
for Mr. Conway and other hunters for
years. All members of the party were
tired last night and went to bed in
their tent early. About 10:30, Mr.
Livingston was awakened by the dogs
howling. He went out and tried to
quiet them. As he went to lay down,
he noticed that he could not hear Mr.
Conway, who slept next to him,
breathe. He reached over and touch touched

the body. Mr. Conway's favorite

the cry of sorrow and warning, when
his master was passing away. All

All the oldtimers and some of the

lowing following tribute to the dog delivered by
Senator Vest to a Missouri jury nearly
fifty years ago:
"Gentlemen of the Jury: The best
friend a man has in the world may
turn against him and become his ene enemy.
my. enemy. His son or daughter, that he has
reared with loving care, may prove un
grateful. Those who are nearest and
dearest to us, those whom we trust
with our happiness and our good
name, may be come traitors to their
faith. The money that a man has he
may lose. It flies away from him,
perhaps, when he needs it most. A
man's reputation may be sacrificed in
a moment of ill-considered action
The people who are prone to fall on
their knees to do us honor when suc
cess is with us may be the first to
throw the stone of malice when failure
settles in clouds upon our heads. The
one absolutely unselfish friend that a
man can have in this selfish world,
the one that never deserts him, the
one that neevr proves ungrateful or
treacherous, is his dog. A man's dog
stands by him in prosperity and pov poverty,
erty, poverty, in health and in sickness. He
will sleep on the cold ground when
the wintry winds blow and the snow
drives fiercely, if only he may be near
his master's side. He will kiss the
hand that has no food to offer; he will
lick the wounds and sores that come
in encounter with the roughness of
the world. He guards the sleep of his
pauper master as if he were a prince.
When all other friends desert he re remains.

reputation falls to pieces he is as con constant
stant constant in his love as the sun in his
journey through the heavens. If for fortune
tune fortune drives the master forth an out outcast
cast outcast in the world, friendless and home homeless,
less, homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher
privilege than that of accompanying
him, to guard against danger, to fight
against his enemies. And when the
last scene of all comes, and death
takes the master in its embrace, and
his body is laid away in the cold
ground, no matter if all other friends
pursue their way, there by the grave graveside
side graveside will the noble dog be found, his
head between his paws, his eyes sad
but open in alert watchfulness, faith faithful

The car did not start. "What's the matter, Sambo I
asked. "We's waitin' for de lady what's in de sto" he
replied, with a wide grin. I looked and, Oh, joy! My heart
was coming toward me. "This is Mrs. Smiles and my
daughter Miss Smiles," I was enlightened by way of in introduction.
troduction. introduction. "We want to go to a department store where
we can get the best selections, the best prices, and where
the lines of women's apparel are complete. Is there such
a place in the city?"
"There certainly is and we are close by. It is the store
of E. T. Helvenston. As soon as you enter the store you
will notice the fine shopping spirit that prevails at this
place. I was in the place the other day and a lady was
making purchases in liberal quantities and I remarked to
her that it was evident that she lived to shop there.
"She replied: 'I always trade at this store, if the goods
can be found here, and I always buy in Ocala. I never
order anything away frcfm home that can possibly be
bought in the town. Ocala is a delightful place to live. I
often think of what delightful environment we enjoy and
the more we co-operate with each other the lighter the
burden is for all and the more all men enjoy the benefits
of community life.'
"She certainly was a sensible woman," said Mrs. Smiles,
and continued, "I wish more of the people felt that way
about things. The merchants pay the taxes principally
which are paid to the city treasury and I believe in co cooperating
operating cooperating with them to the fullest extent. I will be glad
to do my shopping with Mr. Helvenston.
"After we are through I want to go to the REO agency.
I bought this car over a year ago and we drove down thru
the country and my dealer said that if I would come to the
REO agency when I arrived that they would look the car
over and there would be no charge."
"Yes, I know that to be a fact. The Reo cars are handled
here by Mr. B. F. Condon and he certainly has a nice place
of business. He carries parts for all his cars and then all
kinds of accessories. If you need tires you can get them
there and it is a very desirable place to trade."
"When we were in town yesterday we did not have time
to do all our shopping. We do not have a cow at home and
wnat ever must we do about dairy products?"
"That's the easiest ever, Mrs. Smiles. Have you time
before lunch to go by the new creamery? It would take
me a long time to tell you about this place, but you can go
through it in just a few minutes. It's the most progressive
thing I have seen in Florida. It is the only place that I
know of where they have pasteurized milk."
"I would like to see it and so we will run by," was her
reply. After viewing the uptodate plant of the Marion
County Creamery Company, Mrs. Smiles said "That cream creamery
ery creamery is very interesting and now where shall we have lunch,
and we want you to join us."
"The best place is the Harrington Hall restaurant. The
price is only 75 cents and everything served is prepared by
the best chefs that can be secured. The Harrington buys
its supplies in large quantities from the Crescent Market
and the Crescent Grocery. This is a twin place, I call it,
for it is presided over by two separate concerns, but both
departments are complete. The grocery store is in the
front and the meat market in the rear, and when you are
ready for groceries and fresh meats they can be secured
at the CRESCENT and you are sure to be pleased. They
also patronize ihe FEDERAL Bakery and that insures
good bread for in a Federal everything is on casters so
there are no dark holes to carry dirt. Federal bakeries are
just as sanitary as any kitchen and therefore it is a pleas pleasure
ure pleasure to know you are served with pastries from these
The meal finished and realizing the commissions of the
day were over I was taking my leave when Mrs. Smiles
said they were planning a trip for the following afternoon
through the country, but I explained that I had a previous
engagement for a trip of that kind and that I hoped that
we might all meet and enjoy it together.
I hastened to the real estate office of S. S. Savage, the
REAL REAL ESTATE MAN. and while waiting for him
to get through with another customer, who should walk up
but my friend Will of the day before.
"Hello, how are you?" he exclaimed.
