PHILADELPHIA LETTER
Philadelphia is the headquarters of
three of the largest railroad corpora corporations
tions corporations in the country and consequently
was very much interested in the im impending
pending impending strike and its outcome, and
though there is a spirit of relief in the
fact that it has been averted, the gen general
eral general opinion of a large part of the peo people
ple people and the entire press of the city is
that Congress should have kept its
hands off and that the solution that
has been arranged for is wrong and
not in the interest of the public which
will eventually have to pay the bill.
In, counting up the cost of a rail
road strike it was found that there
was ten days provisions of meat al always
ways always on hand, and that the supply of
coal was about the same, while the
supply of milk and vegetables could
be largely kept up thru the medium of
boats and autos, and it certainly takes
a lot of these to keep a city" of this
size going, especially the babies' milk.
There are two large firms in our
neighborhood who bring their milk
from the country, sterilize, bottle and
distribute to customers, one firm 40, 40,-000
000 40,-000 and the other 25,000 quarts each
day, and I suppose there are others
in the city as large.
Another thing, that has been exer
cising the community a great deal
lately is the plague of infant paralysis,
and while it is called "infant" it is in
no wise confined to babies, but seems
to attack older children and grown
people also. The quarantine certainly
is a big nuisance; to get on to a ferry
boat one must pass between a cordon
of police who snatch out every child
and even look suspiciously as a big
man carrying a suitcase for fear he
has a baby concealed inside. Philadel
phia has 760 Sunday schools, all of
which have been out of commission for
the last four Sundays, as the board of
health has forbidden any child under
16 years of age to attend, and the
public say schools which always open
the day after Labor Day are not to be
started, this year until the 29th of
September, and not then unless there
is some decrease in the number of
cases. Children are not allowed on
trains or in moving picture shows and
not only are they barred from Sunday
schools, but a notice is posted On the
church doors, that no children under
sixteen will be admitted to any ser
vice.
Philadelphia has always been con
sidered a slow town, but since the ad
vent of the automobile there has cer
tainly been a grand awakening and
the city fathers have just passed an
ordinance reducing the speed limit
thru the business part of the city to
20 miles an hour, this being made
necessary from the fact that during
the daylight hours and for sometime
after 2000 cars pass the city hall
every hour. But while the speed limit
has been restricted in the center of
the city it does not effect the rest
and at any hour of the day cars are
going past our place making 40 to 50
miles an hour. Of course, there are a
few accidents but there is a decided
improvement lately in that respect,
for last Sunday they only killed six

ber was thirteen. If some of Ocala's

Practices Bill
(Associated Press)
Washington, Sept. 6. By a vote of
32 to 14, the Senate today decided to
take up the Owens corrupt practices
bill, greatly curtailing campaign ex expenditures
penditures expenditures and imposing heavy pen penalties
alties penalties for violations. Seven republi republicans
cans republicans voted with the democrats to take
up the bill, and seven democrats were
against it. The vote doesn't neces
sarily forecast a delay in the adjourn-1
ing of Congress Thursday, as the
Senate has nothing else before it.
Administration leaders expressed the
opinion the bill couldn't reach a vote.
Republican leaders said they wouldn't
let it come to a vote. It is planned to
adopt a concurrent resolution fixing
the time to adjourn as .quick as the
revenue bill conferees indicate they
have reached an agreement. This
would end debate.
HOLDS OUT HOPE
The House didn't send the revenue
bill to conference formally because
Republican Leader Mann wanted time
to read it. Democratic Leader Kitchin
said Congress would probably adjourn
tomorrow.
TREATMENT BEDS REFERRED

Mr. David Henny, of Twombly &

Mr. Twombly had authority from the
board of health for leaving off the
treatment beds referred to. President
Nash, of council, said that he remem
bered that Mr. Twombly made a spe special

Mr. Henney pointed out that the re

made strongly recommends the use of
treatment of the effluent of the Im Imhoff

COIiTRAGTDR MADE WHAT HE CALLED Mill STATE STATEMENT
MENT STATEMENT TO THE COUNCIL

Engineer Henney yesterday ordered
the brick work at the new light and
water plant torn out as being unsatis unsatisfactory,
factory, unsatisfactory, and council last night unani unanimously
mously unanimously sustained him in his action.
Benjamin Thompson the contractor
for the plant, appeared before council
and contended that he was being done
an injustice in the matter. He told
council that the brick would be torn
out as directed, but that the city
would hear from him later.
"This is not a threat, gentlemen.
It is just a plain statement,", said Mr.
Thompson.
Mr. Henney told council that. a rep
resentative from the brick manufac
turers in Jacksonville said the brick
sent here were not selected according
to the approved samples but were the
"run of the kiln." :
The brick were ordered! torn out by
Mr. Henney because they were not up
to specifications, and for. the reason
that not enough mortar was used in
the beds and joints, and because the
header courses were not all alike,
some being in the seventh course and
some in the sixth.
Mr. Thompson thought that the
brick laying was done properly. He
asked that council investigate the
matter thoroughly for itself. He said
that while the brick were being laid,
Mr. Robert Ebner, as inspector for
Twombly & Henney, had commented
on the work and had found fault with
some of it. Mr. Thompson said that
the inspector could have inspected the
work'as it was done.
Mr. Henney said that if the inspec
tor had gone up on the wall and in inspected
spected inspected the work to see. that it was
properly done, after the brick had al already
ready already been rejected, it might have in involved
volved involved the city, and the city might
have had to accept the work.
Mr. Henney said that it was true
that samples of the brick were ap
proved but that the brick sent here
did not compare with the samples. He
said that neither the brick nor the
brick work were satisfactory, and that
he could, therefore, accept neither.
He said that Mr. Ebner had rejected
thebrick, and that Mr. Ebner, in the
presence of Mayor Robertson, had in
formed the contractor that the brick,
if used, would be used on the contrac
tor's own responsibility.
Mr. Thompson said that the mayor
was not present when Mr. Ebner re
jected the first car of brick. He said
that Mr. Ebner said at the time that
he did not know whether the brick
were good brick or not. Mr. Thomp
son said that the mayor may have
looked at the car of brick later. He
said that he had heard that the mayor
said that not a single one of the brick
was good.
Mr. Thompson said that samples of
the rejected brick had been tested,
and that, in spite of an unfair test,
the brick were found strong enough
for the work. He said that the part
of the wall Mr. Henney had found
fault with had been washed by a
heavy rain, but that the rain did not
do damage enough to hurt.
Mr. Thompson said that he had re
quested council, and the building com committee
mittee committee of that body, to inspect the
work and materials. It was pointed
out in reply that his contract with the
city provided that the engineers would
have the acceptance or rejection of
material and work. The contract
states that any material not approv
ed by the engineers shall be immed immediately
iately immediately taken from the yard.
HELPED OUT HENRY
Council Simplified Some of the Labor
of the City Clerk
Council" last night passed over the
head of the mayor an ordinance to
simplify the work of the city clerk in
keeping his books. The measure had
been prepared at the request of the
clerk, and it had been pointed out that
it simply did away with unnecessary
work. The mayor appears to have
misunderstood the purpose of the or
dinance.

out of nine votes, with five applicants
for the position.
The mayor, in a message to council
vetoing the ordinance, makes five,
objections, and says that there are
many more that he might urge
against the measure. He objects to
council delegating its powers to a
board consisting of the sanitary com committee
mittee committee of that body, the city health
officer and the plumbing inspector. He
does not think that council should
delegate its powers to the sanitary
committee. Council did not think that
it would be practicable for council to
act as a whole.
"The evils of the council delegating
its authority," says the mayor in his
message, "have been recently shown
by its payment for 100 yards of sew sewerage
erage sewerage rock excavation on North Main
street at $3 per yard, when there was
no rock excavations whatever. It is
also shown in 'the recent contract for
the cement reservoir in connection
with the new water and light plant,
when payment will be made for work
that is wholly deficient and for which
taxpayers do not get value received,
and clearly shows a waste of the city
funds and a reckless expenditure." It
was said, in answer to this objection,
that council had paid for the rock ex excavations

given his approval. Engineer Henney
explained during the evening that the
leaks which had been found in the
reservoir were being repaired, and
that a thorough test was being made
to locate any further leaks. Mr. Hen Henney

very emphatically that he thought it

courts.. However, it is justice, if it
isn't law, and the railroads will be
wise if they accept it and go on with
it. In view of. the fact that the railr
roads have held the country up any
number of times themselves, it is
very inconsistent in them to talk
about "hold-ups." The more men
there are in this country earning a
living wage for an eight-hour day, the
better it will be for the country.

STAR'S LIBEL SUIT

So many of the Star's country
friends have asked it, in the last few-
days, about the libel suit it has on its
hands, that we think it will not be out
of place to give a brief account of the
events leading up to it.
Some months ago, a man named
Cash came to town and applied for a
position as a special officer on the
police force, and was given a job with
a view of his breaking up some of the
blind tigers around town.
In this work Cash, being a stranger,
had some success. He made the ar arrest
rest arrest and obtained the conviction of a
couple of negroes who were selling
liquor illegally. By this time he be
came known, and his usefulness as a
detective was over.
He was however appointed on the
force to fill the place of one of the
regular men who went on a vacation.
While he was in this position, he dis distinguished
tinguished distinguished himself by his zeal in mak
ing arrests.
It seemed to the Star, however, that
Cash was running in offenders more
with a view to making a record and
perhaps swelling the fine and for forfeiture
feiture forfeiture fund than promoting the cause
of justice. Some of the people he
hauled up in court were law abiding
citizens who broke a new ordinance
simply because they did not know they
were offending.
This is not the Star's idea of a
policeman's duties. It thinks that a
respectable person who breaks one ot
our multifarious city laws thru ig ignorance,
norance, ignorance, and by said breaking does no
real harm, should be enlightened and
warned by any policeman who sees tho
occurrence. Then if he persists in
breaking the law it is time to arrest
him.
We had in this city some years ago
a policeman who in addition to being
over-zealous in making arrests was a
good deal of a bully. He arrested
everybody he could make a complaint
against, and manhandled some of
them. He gave the town a bad name,
and not only our country people but
traveling men who came in here from
points hundreds of miles off, began to
be shy of Ocala.
Not wanting a repetition of the ex
perience, the Star criticised the acts of
Special Officer Cash. It is possible
that the criticism had something to do
with the decision of the council to re
fuse to appoint him to a regular po
sition on the force, tho the members
of the police committee said they had
other reasons sufficient to cause them
to refuse his application.
At any rate he was rejected, and a
week or ten days later he brought suit
against the Star for libel.
Now, there is very good reason for
believing that the libel suit is a put put-up
up put-up job. There are some people in
Ocala who do not like the Star, be
cause it is independent, often crit
icises their actions and sometimes
spoils their plans. One reason why it
is believed that Cash is being used as
a catspaw is that he "was overheard
talking with a certain prominent citi
zen about the suit; another is that he
paid his lawyer, Judge Gober, in ad advance,
vance, advance, although it is well known that
Mr. Cash, who is a poor man, was
having all he could do to support his
family without going into an expen
sive lawsuit. There are other reasons,
which will come out at the trial.
The Star hasn't any personal ill
will against Cash. It would be glad
to help him if it could. In fact, the
editor, hearing a day or two after his
application for a place on the police
force was turned down, that Cash was
going to start a pressing cb, offered
to give him a free write up as soon as
his place of business was decided on.
But the Star thinks policemen should
help and protect the peoph?, not har har-rass
rass har-rass them, and as long as it is under
the present management it will con continue
tinue continue to express that opinion, if it
costs it fifty libel suits.
A NEW FIRM
One of Ocala's most substantial and
respected colored men, L. C. Smith,
who was raised in Ocala, has opened a
mercantile business in the brick cor corner
ner corner building at Orange and Exposi Exposition
tion Exposition strets which he built five years
ago and owns.
The business will be operated as
the L. C. Smith company and a full
line of drygoods, clothing, shoes, hats
and notions will be carried. The store
will have its formal opening tomor tomorrow
row tomorrow afternoon and will open' with a
$5,000 stock of new and seasonable
merchandise.
L. C. Smith has been in the indus industrial
trial industrial insurance business in Ocala for
eight years, has over six hundred
customers for his company, the Afro Afro-American
American Afro-American Insurance company of
Jacksonville. He and his father, be before
fore before him have owned the valuable
corner on which he is located for the
past twenty-two years and he values
the property at $10,000. The Marion
Furniture company occupies one of
the large stores comprising half of
the building and is doing a most suc successful
cessful successful business there.

THE BEST LAXATIVE
To keep the bowels regular the best
laxative is outdoor exercise. Drink a
full glass of water half an hour be before
fore before breakfast and eat an abundance
of fruit and vegetables, also establish
a regular habit and be sure that your
bowels move once each day. When
a medicine is needed take Chamber Chamberlain's
lain's Chamberlain's Tablets. They are pleasant to
take and mild and gentle in effect.

CATTS AND AYER

Editor Star: So many exaggerated
reports have been circulated in regard
to my .little spat with Mr. Catts at
Flemington that I would like to state
the facts in as few words as possible.
It was strictly a Catts meeting into
which I butted by accident and had no
notion of saying a word, but when Mr.
Catts' entire effort was to make peo people
ple people believe that the courts in Florida,
from highest to lowest, are all rotten
and corrupt and that Mr. Knott proved
that he was a man of no principle by
asking or accepting anything from
them, it was just a little more than I
could stand, and the people who were
my friends also, very kindly allowed
me to reply in a short, polite but vig vigorous
orous vigorous speech. I assured Mr. Catts
that if the courts that are in a better
position to investigate and decide the
matter than any individual, gave him
a single vote more than Knott, that
he would certainly get my vote.
In reply to his denunciation of the
Catholics, I informed him that there
are now living in Jacksonville hun
dreds of people who will testify that
when yellow fever devastated that
city and their panic-stricken relatives
ran off and left them to die that hun hundreds
dreds hundreds of Catholic nuns came in and
saved their lives never asking any
one whether he wras a saint or a sinner
and a religion that caused its adher adherents
ents adherents to walk right into the jaws of
death to relieve suffering humanity
must have some good in it.
The report that I denounced the
Guardians of Liberty is absolutely
false. It is a secret society of which
I and other outsiders know but little,
but I am sure that the report and gen general
eral general belief that the purpose of the
Guardians is to disrupt the democratic
party is 'all bosh. I am sure that no
power on earth could make Senator J.
S. Blitch and other good democrats
in Marion county who are members of
it do anything to disrupt or injure the
democratic party, for they know that
it is the white man's only hope in the
South no matter where he comes
from.
During the primary some Guardians
waited on me and only asked this
question : "Are you in favor of the
Roman Catholic church controlling the
politics of Florida?" I replied: "I am
bitterly opposed to the Catholics or
any other religious denomination hav
ing anything to do with politics; that
politics and religion are like salt and
sugar, both good separated, but when
mixed make the most nauseating dose
that any man ever tried to get down
his throat." Alfred Ayer.

MAN
As a general thing, taken by and
large, men are honest except with
themselves.
If he is a fat man, and is dieting to
reduce, he will shove the weight back
a pound or two on the scales, when he
knows In his heart he is heavier than
that.
Then he will tell his friends about
"going around yesterday in 92" and
"taking off a pound and a half ia.
three days" by his diet.
A man will cheat himself on his
score at golf when he knows that fail failing
ing failing to set down the full number of
strokes does not make him a better
golfer.
With these two exceptions almost
every man is honest. Therefore, all
you need to do is to discount what he
says about golf or reducing. Judge.

MACHINERY FOR ROAD WORK

There has been put to work on the
