(Associated Press)

Washington, Dec. 21. President
Wilson's note to all the belligerents,
ruggesting some common ground be
reached for a discussion of terms for
settling the war, is believed to have
reached all belligerent capitals today.
It does not propose' peace terms' nor
offer mediation. It states authorita authoritatively
tively authoritatively that President Wilson acted

without assurances that the, move
would be favorably received by the
Triple Entente. It is reported he takes
the position however, that his note
calls for replies and that even if not
favorable, responses A would tend to
nake clear the objects of the bellig belligerents
erents belligerents which he states in the note has
never been clearly defined. The presi president
dent president has made clear that while the
. United States has no interest in the
terms upon which peace is finally
made, it has profound interest in
. bringing about an agreement for
maintaining peace in" the future.,

. The German ambassador conferred

witn secretary Lansing this morning,
when it is understood the

explained the president's action.
AMERICA IN DANGER OF BECOM BECOMING
ING BECOMING INVOLVED
Danger of the United" States being
drawn into the European war because
of its increasingly critical position as
a neutral, was one of the main reasons
the president sent a note suggesting
that the belligerents discuss peace
terms. Secretary Lansing authorized
this statement, saying that America's
rights were being more and more in involved
volved involved and as the United States was
"drawing nearer the verge of war, it
was entitled to know exactly what
each belligerent seeks," so this coun country
try country could regulate its future conduct.
The secretary declared' United States
material rights was not the foremost
consideration. The White House de declined
clined declined to comment, but didn't attempt
to lessen the importance of Secretary
Lansing's statement.

, A SOBERING FORCE
Secretary Lansing further stated
the sending of this note will indicate

being forced into the war. "That pos possibility
sibility possibility ought to serve as a restrain

ing and sobering force for safeguard

ing American rights. It may also
serve to force an earlier conclusion of
the war."
President Wilson this afternoon
called Secretary Lansing to the White
House for a conference.

There is nothing especially unusual
in the. story so far, but here comes
the unusual part.
The bale of cotton was shipped to
Giles & Co. from Messrs. Smith &
Cooper of. Tampa, to have spun into
yarn, that firm understanding that the
Ocala yarn mill was now in operation.

They will not be disappointed and the

bale will be kept and be one of the

Everybody who Has Wood Seems to
be Trying to Hold Ocala Up
-" x
At 3 o'clock this afternoon, the
electric plant had just about enough
fuel to last till tomorrow morning
and the prospect of a shutdown stares
the city in the face.
The trouble is partly due to the
weather but principally to the desire
of almost .everybody who has wood to
sell to hold the city up for a gilt gilt-edged
edged gilt-edged price. Much wood that has been
promised can't be delivered until after
Christmas, because of the indisposi indisposition
tion indisposition of the negro workmen to labor
during the holidays.
At present the city is obtaining its
own supply from the woods out on the
Silver Springs road, the work being
constantly hindered by the rain.
'We do not know whether the mayor
and council are aware of the fact or
not, but in emergencies they have a
right to seize such a necessity as fuel
wherever they can find it, inside the
city, and use it for the public. need.

ROBERT E. GONZALES

When a dispatch to the Star Wed Wednesday
nesday Wednesday afternoon told of the death of
the above-named young man, we felt,
altho we never met him, that we had
lost a personal friend.
Many times in the past few years
we have reveled in his witty and sen sensible
sible sensible paragraphs few men having
his talent to write so much in so few
words.
The passing of -this young man is

an inspiration to the other young men
of America. He was well placed and
life's broadest highway opened fair
before him. His country called and
he answered.. He left his congenial
task and his comfortable home and
went forth to the strenuous work and
rough life of the soldier. From a
place high in his high profession, he
stepped down to take the orders of
men who the day before would have
been proud to receive bare notice
from his pen.
More than the average man he
knew what lay before him. He knew
he not only faced the certainty of
hard work and privation but the dan danger
ger danger of wounds, sickness and death.
The latter two have come to him. He
has died as truly for his country as
though he had fallen on the battle battlefield,
field, battlefield, and from what we know of his
people we have no ddubt that he clos closed
ed closed his eyes on a life bright with
promise without complaint.
Life is a great thing, but only great
in those who hold it of little value be beside
side beside their duty to their country, their
loved ones, their friends or a great
cause. The spirit that imbued

brightest jewel and her greatest safe safeguard.

Gonzales is from the pen of his one onetime
time onetime associate, Mr. Louis H. Chazal,
who worked for some years on the
State, and who now often does special
work for the Star.
The death of "Bob" Gonzales is a
loss to journalism and to his country.
Having within a short space gained
nation-wide prominence as para para-grapher
grapher para-grapher on the State, Columbia, S. C.,
he did not hesitate to leave his desk,
on the top floor of the State building,
and go to the border as a private in
the ranks of the Second South Caro

lina regiment. For efficient and dis distinguished
tinguished distinguished service as a soldier he was
made a sergeant, and was appointed
historian of his regiment. He died in
the base hospital at Fort Bliss, El
Paso.
"Bob," as he was known to those
who worked with him on the State,
was of a most modest and retiring
disposition. He spent most of his
time at his desk. His success may be
attributed to his earnestness and sin sincerity.

behind his wit and humor. His par paragraphs
agraphs paragraphs were quoted in almost every
issue of the Literary Digest, and
among those to give him high praise
was Franklin P. Adams, of the New
York Tribune, one of the best known
and most successful "columnists" in
this country. Bob's loss will be dis distinctly

the newspapers of the South, who de delighted

Many a paragrapher knew Robert E.
Gonzales, who never met him.

lie enjoyed himself, giving himself, up
to his hobbies. He was an enthusias-
tic baseball fan, and was exceedingly
fond of good music and the theater.
No one can take the place of Old
Col. Aftermath on the staff of the
State. No one will feel his loss more
than his uncle, Mr. Ambrose Gon Gonzales,

or bigger man in this country.
Robert- E. Gonzales was the only
son of Capt. W. E. Gonzales, now

was not necessary. The troops have
been on the border long enough for
arrangements to be perfected to give
them plenty to eat, and the country
they are guarding expects them to be

COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS TREE

UNWISE TO WEAR
YOUR WELCOME OUT

A wise and kind-hearted lady said
to a valued friend, the other day:
"You are doing better work than you
have ever done, and. possibly better
work than you will ever do again.
Perhaps you had better die soon, be before
fore before you do something to spoil your

The ladies of the civic committee

sre rapidly pushing their prepara preparations
tions preparations for the civic Christmas tree,
which will shine out its myriad lights

to the children of the city and sur
rounding country at 7 o'clock Satur
day evening, Dec. 23.

A-large and handsome tree has

been selected, will be cut down Fri Friday
day Friday and haujed to town, and Saturday
it will bejput in place and decorated.
Santa Claus has signified his inten intention
tion intention of coming straight from the
North Pole to Ocala. He will arrive
in a big auto frdm somewhere to the
east, will circle the square in a way
that will forever discount squaring
the circle, and will meet the children
at the foot of the Christmas tree.
After rejoicing himself with the sight
of. their bright faces, and trying to
make them brighter, he will mount
again into his gasoline driven sleigh
on wheels and drive swiftly without
stopping to the westward. Sunday
right, he will catch up with the sun sundown
down sundown on the borders of Asia and will
then come on, bringing joy to the
hearts of all children, to heathen of
Asia and Africa as well 'as the Chris Christians
tians Christians (for St. Nicholas knows no
creed) to the war-saddened boys and
girls of shattered Europe and back, to
our own land again, in time to pay
his special visit to Ocala and all
America.
It should be understood that this
Christmas tree is a community and a
social, and not. a charity affair. It is

for all the children, not only of the

city, but for any in the county tha

will come. It is a manifestation of

the Christmas spirit. The only ticket
of admission is to be a -child. Each

and all will be treated alike and al

will be welcome. It will be strictly
democratic. The children of the rich

man will receive the same considera

tion and the same presents as the chil children
dren children of the nan who works for scanty
wages, or the man who can find no

work to do. It's to be hoped that al

will come. Each father and mother

in' Ocala should feel that the celebra

tion islincomplete if his or her child

is not there.

The Star hopes to meet all its
friends at 7 o'clock Saturday evening
within the radius of the lights of the

civic Christmas tree.

We present this week to our read readers
ers readers the ideal Christmas spirit as ex

pressed by a club woman in another j
state. Mrs. Collier as Hattie May

Porter, spent her girlhood years inj
Ocala and still loves her friends here
very dearly. We feel that they will
commend the spirit of the following
article which appeared last week in
the Times-Gazette of Tuscaloosa, Ala.
.
Christmas
(By Mrs. W. A. Collier)
"Not what we give, but what we share,
For the gift without the giver is bare;
Who gives himself with his alms feeds
three
Himself, his hungering neighbor and
me."
Christmas, with all its joys and
happiness, is approaching and when

we remember what the celebration
means the day that God gave His
priceless gift to the world, and as we
go about Tuscaloosa, seeing the
Christ spirit exemplified in the lives
of those wrho are striving to make the
occasion joyous for the less fortunate,

we feel that at least some are worthy
of the Divine plaudit "Inasmuch as
you have done it to the least of these,

you have done it unto me."

Christmas has so far degenerated

into an occasion of mere gift-giving
that it is a matter of custom to ex expect
pect expect as well as contribute and there is
great danger of .forgetting that
Christmas stands as a commemora commemoration
tion commemoration of love in heaven and earth. The
custom of bestowing gifts is a beau beautiful
tiful beautiful one, typical of the season of love,
for on the gladsome Christmas the
world was given the Redeemer of man
and it is not the idea to discourage
the custom of gift giving but the cus custom
tom custom of making expensive gifts, there thereby
by thereby making the holiday a burden
rather than a joy. The recipient, as
a rule, does not need the gift bestow bestowed
ed bestowed and had often rather receive a
heart full of love and good wishes
with a tiny token thrown in for good
measure. A small, inexpensive gift

with more of the giver's true self,
more sympathy, means much toward,
real Christmas cheer.
There are many to whom the glad gladsome
some gladsome holiday means little of happi happiness
ness happiness or brightness for in the homes
of the destitute and suffering poor
the lives of the children are a deep
drab without a ray of sunshine and
the approach of Christmas is a season
dreaded by the mother of the wee girl
who has never held a doll vjith "really

truly" hair; the father of a bright

boy who doesn't own a toy drum or

a tin whistle. In celebration of the

birthday of the King who forgets no

one of His children may we, this year

when times are hard and money scare

take a common sense view of gift giv

ing and remember our friends in

simple fashion while our guts o

small toys take happiness to children

of less fortunate parents.

Of course our individual lists are

long but who could groan over that?

For the longer the list the more

potentially happy the donor and only

at Christmas do we communicate as
concerning giving and receiving in the

apostle's phrase "It is more blessed
to give than to receive." Where the

true Christmas spirit exists the

Christmas list is a list of beautifu

opportunities and church folk, Sunday

schools, charitable institutions as wel

take the opportunity to be of service

and benefit to persons or families of
restricted means whose hearts will be
warmed and whose burdens will be
lightened; whose lives will be made
brighter and happier by the kindly

thought which prompts the giving of

small gifts.

Why not try borrowing children for
the yuletide festivities if the home
knows not the joy and happiness of a
tiny tot? There are many who would
gladly repay the childless family for

their sacrifice and trouble by bringing

into such a home a ray of sunshine
radiated only by one of tender years

or perhaps a big-hearted family with

a comfortable home might adopt

crushed lonely soul for the Christmas

season, to be warmed by the sincere

radiance and cheer that permeates the

atmosphere of many childless homes.

Relieve the destitution of a less

fortunate family, take some cheer to
a1 wee tot who seems doomed to have

not visit from Santa Claus, make

somebody happy on the gladsome

Christmas day and great vnll be your

reward. Remembering that "Inas

much as ye have done it to the least

of one of these, ye have done it unto

me."

A raaiani jewei star;
Serene and bright it journey'd on,

And sent its rays alar.

Around the Shepherds as they lay

It shed its glorious ngnt;
The Angels came, in multitude,

And fili'ed the sky ox nient.

And glory in the height"

Still let thy radiance burn,
