Drake's solo, "God Shall Wipe Away
All Tears," brought comfort to all who
heard him. 1
The memorial address was delivered
by Rev. Bunyan Stephens. He used
the text, "Friend and lover hath he
separated. from from me." Ps. 88:18.
Mr. Stephens mentioned that as kin
ship and friendship form the basis of
human happiness, so the separation
caused by death is the basis of much
of human sorrow. The speaker also
emphasized the certainty of death,
bringing out the facts that this is na natural

When the Gtar went to press at 3:40

into the debate, decided to- carry; it

then sat down to listen to his oppon opponent,

to remain until Mr. Windle finished.

fortified with statements which he
was safe in making, as their confu confutation

Mr. Upshaw, on the other hand,
dealt in homemade fact3, the proofs

the crowd with him and was con constantly

Mr. Upshaw made' a home thrust
when he brought up a statement from
Mr. John T. Moore, manager of the
wet campaign. Mr. Upshaw declared
that Mr. Moore had said that if the
wets won this time, his business would
be for sale the day after election, be because,
cause, because, he said of the drys, "they
surely will get us the next time."
Mr. Moore was in the audience, but
made no denial, tho called upon by
Mr. Upshaw to do so, if he desired.
Messrs. Upshaw and Windle are
both masters in debate, know the
game and observe the rules. They
treated each other with the greatest
courtesy. Mr. Windle won the good
will, of all who heard him, and the
prohibitionists regretted that he
wasn't on their side.
Mr. Upshaw spoke again at the
bandstand in the evening, followed the
address of Mr. McMullen. He left on
the early train Sunday morning for
Savannah, where he was to address
the Y. M. C. A. Sunday afternoon.
He is a wonderful little man, has
made friends by the thousand in Mar

the man who tried to excuse himself

the Bible that the children of Israel

on William Jennings to pull the big

Mr. Windle is the attorney for the

the prosecution, make a much better
speech, and we don t' doubt but that
he would take more pleasure in doing
so. He is a good speaker and a man
of parts, and it is a pity that he pros
titutes his talents to the service of
men who send money to Florida to
corrupt voters and break the laws of
the state in order to further their

' One reason why we will vote dry
tpmorowLis because we have two. or
three friends who can't let liquor
alone as long as they can obtain it
simply by stepping into a saloon ana
buying it. They are going tq vote dry
themselves, because they believe they
can remain sober if not exposed to
temptation. Perhaps they are mis mistaken,
taken, mistaken, but they have a right to their
ehance. In our opinion, their sober
lives are-worth more than the saloon
revenue of a county.
Another reason why we are going
to vote dry tomorrow is because, to
our positive knowledge the open sa saloon
loon saloon has ruined another friend. A
few years ago, he had a good position
and no man stood higher in the fra fraternal
ternal fraternal circles of Ocala. Today he is
down and out and criminal prosecu prosecution

drinking has dragged him down. The
Davis law might have saved him ten
years ago; it adds to his degradation
today, for the 15-cent half pints are
better suited to his appetite and his
finances than drinking at the bar.
The man who quotes Scripture in
defense of the saloon business is
most accurately described as follows
by Moore in "The Fire Worshippers":
Just Allah! what must be thy look,
When such a wretch before thee

There is a great deal of sophistry
advanced for the retention of the sa

arguments. One is that a part of the

The other argument is that another

The Star has heard Circuit Judge
Bullock say that it there was no liquor
in the country that the amount of
criminal business in the courts would
be greatly reduced. Everybody knows
that Judged Bullock is careful and
conservative in all he says, and this
simple statement of his is one of the
strongest arguments for prohibition
that can be made..
If every prohibitionist in Ocala
precinct will vote tomorrow, it is al almost
most almost certain that the city will go dry.
If the city goes dry, liquor cannot be
sold in Ocala, even if the county goes
wet, which would practically .win the
battle. The only, other incorporated
towns in the county, with the excep exception

and Belleview's city charter is so
so drawn that a saloon can not open

to prohibition because it interferes
with their personal liberty.
The Star thinks that if these gen
tlemen will look back across the
pa'ges of history to our earliest knowl
edge of the human race they will
find that all of man's progress toward
civilization has been made at the ex expense
pense expense of personal liberty.
Thousands of years ago, it was per
fectly moral and proper for a man to
kill another man whenever he had the
chance, to outrage a woman whenever
he had the opportunity, to carry off
the food of a family or drive it out
of its cave into the cold whenever he
had the power. The reason why it
was both proper and common to act
so was because everybody was doing
it. Personal liberty, like knighthood
later, was in flower; only more so.
One day, far back in the dark ages,
two or more men had a streak of com
mon sense. They "got together" and
agreed they wouldn't knock each other
in the head or appropriate each
others' wives or food or caves. In
short, they gave up some of their per
sonal liberty for the common good.
i-And from this little beginning came
the civilization of today.
The man who sacrifices a little of
his personal liberty by voting dry to
morrow will only imitate his ances
tors of thousands of years ago, and
will not make near so great a con
cession to the spirit of the times.
At its last meeting the board of
county commissioners issued to the
thre Ocala banks, in round figures,
$98,000 of refund warrants, in ex
change for an equal number of out outstanding
standing outstanding warrants held by the banks
and issued prior to Feb. 1, 1915. The
refund warrants are to run for, about
twelve years from date and bear 6
per V cent interest, payable semi-an
nually. ; While this will not entirely
clear up the financial situation, it will
relieve it greatly.
Mr. W. L. Colbert, tax collector for
Marion County probably has made a
record breaking collection. During
the month of November he collected a
little over-$47,000 in taxes, $26,000 of
which was paid during the last five

we advise .them to let Mr. Windle
speak from one of the traffic markers
on the square, as he won't make any
votes and they may need their coin
There are several anti-prohibitionists
in town, men of character and tal talents,
ents, talents, who could make speeches in
favor of the liquor traffic speeches
that would carry far more weight
than any that could be made by any
hired speaker imported from Chicago.
But you couldn't offer any inducement
that would cause one of them to make
such a speech. Because any one of
them knows that to do so would mean
his political damnation and his social
detriment. The saloon party in Flor Florida
ida Florida stands right where the carpetbag
party stood forty years ago, and no
man with any regard for himself will
be prominent in its behalf.
While Mr. Windle is speaking at the
Temple this evening, he might inform
his audience if he approves of the na national
tional national liquor dealers' association send sending
ing sending money to Marion county to pay
other men's poll taxes, in defiance of
law, and to pay precinct heelers to
work among the dregs of the popula population
tion population in behalf of the rumsellers.
Mr. Windle, the great saloon orator,
is hired by the same organization
that pays Mobley, the precinct heeler
at Martel, and the other precinct
heelers, thruout the county, and that
sends money to Marion to pay poll
taxes in direct defiance of the law. We
hope he feels proud of his employers,
his associates and his cause.
Messrs. V. P. Smith and C. C. Curry
of the Wacahoota section were among
the Saturday visitors in Ocala. The
former says that now that the people
of Marion county signified in the re recent
cent recent county division election that they
did not want the northwestern section
to be cut off to make another county,
it was up to them to see that they
have good roads.

TO OUR WOMEN
Remember the prayer services to tomorrow
morrow tomorrow beginning at 7 a. m. in the
Presbyterian church. The other meet meetings
ings meetings will be in the Baptist church
every hour during the day. The bell
will be rung hourly as a reminder that
the women are on their knees before
God, pleading for their happiness,
their homes and their children. From
the church they will go to the court
house to add the influence of their
presence to the cause of temperance.
In Faust, Goethe's wonderful ;mas
terpiece, he tells how Mephistopleles
(the devil) having withstood all hu
man influences, and laughed in demon
iac glee over the broken hearts of his
victims, quailed arid fled before the
gleaming Cross of Calvary. So, worn
en we beg that you bring to this
supreme sacrificial service the rad
iance and the glory of the cross of
Jesus of Lord and forget not to plead
for compassion for those whose eyes
are blinded, our brothers who have
"lost the way home" and who are be being
ing being led by the devil to their own de
And when victory is won to God
the Father, Son and Holy Spirit shall
be all the glory now and ever more.
Mrs. E. Van Hood,
Pres. W. C. T. U.
The early prayer service, 7 a. m.,
Tuesday, at the Presbyterian church,
will be conducted by the ministers of
the city, the "men of God" .who are
the guardians of the spiritual life of
our people. All men and women are
urged to attend.
Surely the presence of the little
children about the streets tomorrow
will be an appeal to the hearts of
men. God pity that one who can look
unmoved upon the pleading of help
less women and children fro protec
tion from a deadly evil. Men of Ocala
we trust you do not fail us! Vote the
saloons out of Marion county.

Electra, Dec. 6. The regular Sun
day services were held here yesterday
conducted by the pastor, Rev. Gor-
bett. The services were turned into
a rousing temperance meeting with
five or ten minute talks from several
of the leading men from Electra,
Lynn, Ocklawaha and Grahamville.
There was a big gathering of people
from all around the county and they
came prepared for an all day stay,
bringing their dinner with them. Two
deacons were ordained for the newly
organized Baptist church at Electra.
In the afternoon the people were de delighted
lighted delighted by a telling and forceful ad address
dress address by Mrs. Fulton, of Interlachen,
a gifted temperance lecturer. Mrs.
Fulton has been a close observer in'
her travels through this country, and
others, and is well prepared to make a
comparison between the conditions in
both wet and dry sections of the coun
try. I can assure you it is not at all
avorable to the wet side. After a
short intermission there was a silver
medal contest by the young people of
