Washington, May 31. A new note
from Carranza was delivered at the
state department this morning by
Ambassador Arredondo. The president
of the de facto government asks for a
definite explanation of the presence of
American troops in Mexico, and re renews

The note refers to the repeated
declarations of the United States
that war with Mexico is not desired
and argues that the best evidence of
this would be the withdrawal of the
American forces now in that country.
The continued presence of the expe expedition,
dition, expedition, the note says, is having a bad
The note claims that Carranza
troops can prevent any further border
raids and declares that the Glenn
Springs and Boquillas raids never
would have occurred had the troops
now in Mexico been patrolling the
American side of the international
boundry line. ;
Ambassador Arredondo admitted
today that the note was brought here
Monday by Manuel Mendez, the spe special
cial special messenger whose appearance in
, Washington had been expected and
when it was stated that he brought
no message from the Mexican chief
caused nluch surprise. Arredondo,
who at the time denied the arrival of
a note, stated that the wanted time to
ask Carranza if anything had occurred
to change his attitude.

"Ocala is the very best point in
this state for a packing plant. It has
splendid railroad facilities, and is the

Tlj statement was made today by
Mr. f p. Light, one of Marion coun

"A p acking plant in Ocala would

Mr. Light referred to the fact that
the Ocala Manufacturing company

the plants at Wildwood and Williston,
He thought that probably 200,000

Kansas City, Mo., May 31. Uni
versal training based upon universal
service was urged on the youth of the
nation ; by Theodore Roosevelt in a
memorial day address, delivered here
yesterday as "a message to all Ameri
cans," before civil war veterans of the
north and the Confederacy.
Appealing, he explained, to "the
spirit of thoroughgoing Americanism
in all our people," the former presi
dent declared that 'those who assert
that there is no danger of the United
States ever being attacked are either
ignorant or forgetful of the multitude
of examples which show how inter
national conflicts arise, and that ::it
is likely that if we are not strong
enough to maintain our rights, in including
cluding including the assertion of the Monroe
Doctrine," the United States will be
subject to aggressions which it would
be obliged to resent, or else abandon
its national greatness. x
NATIONAL MEN NEEDED
"The people must choose as their
executive and legislative leaders at
Washington," Col. Roosevelt said,
men whose theory of government is
as far as the poles from the pork pork-barrel
barrel pork-barrel theory and this, whether the
pork-barrel be considered from a per
sonal, political or sectional' stand
point; men who look forward and not
hack; men who face the facts as they
actually are. :H
FLINTLOCK THEORIES' FOOLISH
"After this war we. shall see a new
Europe ; a Europe 4 energetically de
veloping new social and economic
means of meeting new problems. If,
under these circumstances, we take
refuge in formulae dug out from the
wreckage of principles in the past, in
stead of developing these principles
so as to meet the future, we shall be
as foolish' as if we. were to arm our
soldiers with flintlocks and send them
against an army possessing machine
guns, high power rifles and modern
artillery. The time for flintlock
theories of statesmanship in this coun country
try country is past."
APPEALS TO AMERICANS
J Coi. Roosevelt said his address was
directed "with equal emphasis to the
soul qualities of the men who follow followed
ed followed Grant and of the men who followed
Lee" but that he made no appeal "to
the memory of the copperhead paci pacifists
fists pacifists who put peace above duty."
PACIFISTS FALSE PROPHETS
Col. Roosevelt urged the nation to
"beware of the false prophets" pro
fessional pacifists, who do not serve
Two years ago these "false proph
ets" said there would never be another
war, the colonel said, adding: "Let
us not be misled again." Even should
peace come in Europe tomorrow, he
declared, it ought not to affect Amer American

considerable deposition by h his work
on the dry side last year, but other
wise it is to be doubted that he has
lost many votes.
There are four candidates for the
office of superintendent of public iin-
t struction, Messrs. Brinson, Grantham,
Miller and Ervin. It looks like the
I race is between the first two. Mr.
Brinson has been superintendent for
eight years, gets the blame for near nearly
ly nearly every mistake the school board
i makes and the people may conse conse-i
i conse-i quently decide to lay him off. But
there is no doubt that he has dis discharged
charged discharged his duties faithfully and well.
Mr. Grantham : has been on the
school board fourteen years and is al almost
most almost 'as well acquainted with county
i educational affairs as Mr. Brinson.
Messrs. Miller and Ervin are good
teachers but it is doubtful that either
can muster enough votes to win.
The candidates for surveyor are
Alex. Moorhead, the veteran, who has
been in office for years, and Mr. L. B.
Marsh, a competent young engineer,
who aspires to the place.
Last but not least are the county
commissioners. The Star has no de-
I sire to take sides in any district but
its own, where Mr. W. D. earn is a
candidate for re-election, and Messrs.
Ed. Carmichael and A. S. Pickett are
running against him and each other.
All good men, but the Star thinks it
is to the interest of the district, and
the entire county, to re-elect Mr.
Carn. He has done good work since
he took office at the beginning of last
year, and it is only fair to give him
itwo years more. No man who has
held the office has worked more faith
fully and intelligently, and as chair
man of the board he has aided in
planning work that it is to the inter
est of the taxpayers that he be allow
ed to carry on' for at least another
term. Mr. Carmichael has always
been an enterprising and public spirit-
I ed man and made a fine record as
commissioner, but when when he had
been a commissioner two years he
was given a second term, and did no
better work than .Mr. Carn has done.
Another thing to consider, and a -very
important one is, that the election of
Mr. Carmichael would be a great in incentive
centive incentive to the wet element to call an another
other another local option election next year.
We do not know that Mr. Carmichael
is in favor of another wet or dry con contest,
test, contest, but we do know that many wet
men are working for him in the hope
that his election will be a step toward
restoring saloons to the county. Pro Prohibition
hibition Prohibition is working very well, and
very few of our leading citizens want
the county torn up with another wet
or dry campaign, no matter what the
Some particular people may object
o our lugging prohibition into this
question if they do, we can only say
that all our county public affairs will
be decided in the primary of next
week. And another matter to re
member is that the county was kept
wet for 4 twenty-five years by means
of republican votes, and if it ver
goes wet again, it will go wet by re
publican votes. If democrats chosen
in a democratic primary would agree
to leave the question of calling a wet
or dry election to another democratic
primary, it would be proper and con
sistent to leave the issue out of this
one, but in the present state of affairs
it is, entirely correct for dry demo
crats to vote against men whom they
have reason to fear might force sa-
oons on the county again by means
af republican votes.
The third candidate in the race, Mr.
Pickett, does not seem' to be cutting
much of a figure. He is an indus industrious
trious industrious and skillful farmer, and if fate
should land him in the position there
is no, doubt that he would do his best
by his district and the county. v
himself not afraid to attack' error.
. The Star thinks Marion county men
should consider Mr. Farris when they
mark their first choice Mr. Knott is
a quiet and industrious man, "better
acquainted with state affairs than any
of the other candidates he has been
faithful in all the public places he has
held; if he is elected he will be an
honest and efficient governor. He is
the least showy, and demonstrative of
the candidates, but let it be remem
bered that the quiet men do the world's
work. Mr. Hudson is .more of a
statesman than any of the others; the
only fault the Star has to find with
him is that he, the best qualified of
the candidates to combat and show up
the .religious bigots that have tried to
poison the minds of our people, has
remained as mum on the subject as an
oyster. Mr. Wood is a live, hustling,
competent business man; like Farris,
he isn't afraid to speak out. Any one
of these four would make a governor
creditable to the state. As for Catts,
all we have to say is that in the forty
, years that we have been a student of
politics that he is the first man we
ever heard preach bigotry from a
democratic platform; we do not con consider
sider consider him a democrat and do not think
he has any place in a democratic pri-
mary. ne should have been com
pelled to run on a platform of his own,
and the said platform would have
been, "If a man does not agree with
your religious creed, he has no polit
The candidates for justice of the
supreme court-are Francis M. Cock-
rell of Jacksonville and Jefferson B.
Browne of Key West. Both are ex excellent
cellent excellent men, but it is the Star's opin
ion that Mr. Cockrell, who has filled
the office well, deserves re-election.
The candidates for secretary of
state are H. Clay Crawford, the pres
ent incumbent, and A. P. Jordan. Mr.
Crawford has filled the office ably and
honorably for fourteen years ; the
only argument against his re-election
is that he has been in office longer
.than it is customary for a democrat
to hold one office. Mr. Jordan is a
veteran newspaper man, is in every
way worthy to hold the office and the
Star would be giad to see him elected.
Nobody is running against Tom
West for attorney general. For state
treasurer there are Mr. Luning, the
present incumbent, and Mr. Griner of
Bradford county, and from all we can
hear of the two gentlemen either
would fill the office well.
Of the candidates for controller, we
favor E. P. Thagard, not only because
he is a Marion county man, but be because
cause because our acquaintance of years with
him convinces us that he is peculiarly
qualified to fill the place. We have no
choice between his opponents, Messrs.
Angle and Amos, both of whom are
clever gentlemen and well posted on
the duties of the office. Mr. Angle,
however, has failed to qualify.
Of the two candidates for superin superintendent

Candidates Addressed the People at
One of the Historic Spots of

Fort McCoy Tuesday was a most
pleasant event to all who attended.
Fort McCoy is one of the historic
spots of Marion. One of the chain of
forts built apross the state to keep the
Indians in order eighty years ago
was located there, and it became a
gathering spot of pioneers who have
kept up a thriving community ever
since. It has always been a favorite
place for picnics on account of its
lovely lakes and pretty Woods. Some
years ago, Fort McCoy was changed
from Arcadian to industrial life by
the location of a big lumber business
and the advent of the Ocala Northern
railroad. It buzzed with industry!
awhile, but now the big sawmill has
shut down and the exotic population
has fled. The old-timers and their
lands are there yet, however, and the
place will (soon rebuild its prosperity
on a more solid foundation. "'
The place for the meeting was well
loca'ted. The stand was under the
trees by beautiful Silver Lake, and
everybotfy had plenty of shade and
cooling breezes. That veteran demo democrat,

introduced each candidate with well well-chosen

Hilda unlocked the door of her little
apartment and hurried to the front
window. "Another one's gone, she
said in bewilderment. "One goldfish
disappeared yesterday, another today.

two goldfish were swimming.
That night she slept without fresh
air from the outside, leaving only the
transom open for ventilation. And In
the morning another fish was gone
She almost fainted with the shock.
Someone or something had been in her
room in he night! Then her foot
struck something. She picked it up.
It was a man's cuff link with a single
diamond inset. She counted her money,
the spoons, and felt of her few bits of

"Oh, something about fish," he an answered
swered answered vaguely. Goldfish. I've got
some I don't know how to feed."
"It's too bad. But I have goldfish
at home and when I want to know
anything 1 go to Flnneys pet store in
the next square. If you go there you
can get everything you want."
"Thank you very much. Good after
noon." He put on his hat to depart
and, as he lifted his hand, Hilda saw
a diamond-studded cuff link like the
one she had found in the morning. The
mystery deepened. Here was the man
who had her goldfish, but why would
anyone steal goldfish?
That night Hilda discovered from
the janitor that her neighbor below
was unmarried and went by the name
of Hubert Field
"Has he any pets or anything like
that?" she inquired anxiously.
"Not that I know of. They don't
allow cats and dogs in the building.1
That evening, as she was trying tc
calm her nerves and forget the mys

something stirred by the window, then
dropped lightly to the floor behind her
She felt rather than heard it, so faint
was the sound. 'She was too fright

her fear. Slowly turning her head, she
saw r. little brown monkey hopping
toward her on three legs. In the other
paw he gripped a dripping, squirming
goldfish. She sat perfectly .still and
the monkey, sitting on his hind legs,
laid his tribute upon her knee.
The monkey was very tame and Hil
da picked him up in her arms. Then
she got the gold link from her dresser
and descended the stairs. v
As she had expected, Mr. Hubert
Field was her acquaintance of the li

Hilda laughed merrily. 'I'm not
guilty of the rouge I assure you."
Hubert Field looked at her fair, rosy
skin and softly curling hair. "That is
obvious, Miss Neighbor," he assured
her. "And now that Jocko has' intro

"I don't see why it shouldn't," said

Catts Letter Out of the Bag a Result
of Misplaced Confidence
Tallahassee, Fla., May 29, 1916.
Editor of the Daily Democrat:
It has been brought to my p.ttention
that the statement given by me to
Mr. Jones to be used among guardians
and other affiliated orders, to show
the relation between Gov. Trammell
and myself has been published broad
cast in the Catholic sheet Dixie.
Such was not the intention of the ar
ticle, but only to be used among those
whom Mr. Jones could reach through
the avenue of the patriotic frater
nities of the state. I am sorry of the
breach of trust and ethics on the part
of this party, who obtained this
statement from me under conditions
not to injure Gov. Trammell or my
self, which we think has been twisted
to his and my hurt by a candidate or
the Senate who seeks to have it help
him. But as Gov. Trammell and I
are friendly it will be a boomerang
to him. Yours truly,
S. J. Catts.
