Last year Marion county and the
contributory section grew more cotton
than has been grown before in ten
years. This cotton brought fair
prices, but nothing like it will jthis
year. Hundreds of farmers had some
ready cash from the cotton and it was
a life-saver almost" to many of them,
and the merchants of the county took
in a great deal of cash. The actual
cash in circulation from the cotton
crop was very noticeable.
This season the acreage in cotton in
the county is fully 200 per cent
greater than last year, and it is the
same all over the cotton growing sec sections

has been almost an ideal one for cot cotton

injure the plant or $ole.
George Giles, probably the best
posted man on cotton from planting

Star reporter yesterday that he never
attempted to make a report on cotton
or to begin figuring on the crop, till
after August 1st, at. which time, if
enemies were going to assail the crop,
cr if weather 'conditions were to be
a factor, both would have developed
by then. However, he said, the pros prospects

ieties. varieties. Giles is ready to handle his full
share of rthe crop has added to his
gin equipment a couple of the very
latest gins, 'another press or bailer
and a large oil engine and when the
season opens will have ten gins ready
to separate the lint from the seed and
supply bailing facilities for handling
the finished product. He ,will be in
position to bale from 60 to 70 bales
per week.
Giles formerly was accused of hav having

tion situation in Marion county, but if he did it
was not of his seeking, but merely as
a result of the survival of the fittest,
for the other ginners dropped out and
quit while he held on and through all
these years Giles has urged the estab establishment
lishment establishment of other gins in Ocala and
has often asked the Star to advocate
the installing of gins as he said it
would encourage the growing of more
cotton, meaning more money for every
one, and he has said, that no matter
what he paid for cotton or how he
treated the farmer, the idea would
linger in their minds that he had the
advantage of them, just as long as he
had no competitor.
Now, we are glad to hear, there are
prospects of other gins. Mr. Nathan
Mayo put in a big gin aV Summerfield
last year and ginned a great deal of
cotton. We understand that Mr. H.
A. Fausett will start up his gins, idle
for many years, and are told that at
least one other large ginning estab establishment,
lishment, establishment, and probably two, will be
located in Ocala. Mr. Smoak, at Fair,

county, will have a gin, and there
may be one at Sparr or Reddick,
while a number of Ocala merchants

The Star fiopes that the merchants
who buy cotton will have it ginned in
the local gins, and give the local peo people
ple people employment for the money spent
for their labor will come straight
back into the merchants' tills, where whereas,
as, whereas, if the cotton is shipped away in
the seed the small profit of handling
it will be the end of the matter and
the ginrers elsewhere will reap the
second piofit.
It is entirely too early to speculate
(in one's mind, not in futures) -on the
price of cotton. Many things may
effect it. If the southern senators and
congressmen manage to keep cotton
out of th new food bill and let the
ciop take its chances in the markets
of the world, without government
regulation, the South will come into
its own and will receive hundreds of
millions of dollars for the cotton crop,
more than she has ever' received since
the war of the rebellion.
With Jthe prices the farmers hope
to get for their cotton, Marion county
growers will receive more money for
the crop more ready cash than they
have ever received for any staple
crop in the history of the county.
Then on the side, there is the best
corn, peanut, velvet bean, sweet
potato and other crops that they have
had in many a day, while of cattle
and hogs it is doubtful if there was
ever quite so many. The various
crops and stock are all looking well,
and it is certain the farmer never re-

There is a certain class of people
north and south who are always fuss fuss-ing
ing fuss-ing like so many old women over the
race 'question. Those in the north
accuse the southerners of lynching
and disfranchising the negro; those
in the south say the north would do
worse if it had a chance, and point
to such events as the East St. Louis
riots as evidence. Both are partly
right and mostly wrong, and in both
events the sensible people of the
country are tired of the row.
The negro is not disfranchised in
the South, and any man who is in the
least familiar with the federals laws,
or will take an hour to look at them,
will see that he can't be. In order to
vote, he must take the same measure
to qualify that a white man must
take, and if he won't that's his own
fault. The negro is sometimes lynch
ed in the South, but it is almost al always
ways always for a crime for which any man,
white or black, in any part of the
world, would kill the criminal if he
could. The negro is sometimes treat-

probably, on account of long acquaint acquaintance,
ance, acquaintance, more. It's our opinion that most
northern people would treat the- ne negro
gro negro with justice, but we, do not think
they" would indulge his weaknesses as
southerners do. ;
The latest matter of dispute is ne negroes
groes negroes going north for work, and meet meeting
ing meeting a most inhospitable" reception at
-the hands of northern workingmen.
The' negrophiles of the north, who
know less about the negro than they
do about the Chinese, say the negro
goes north because he can't vote and
is afraid of being lynched. Being
lynched is a prospect that doesn't
worry the southern negro much.Only
nbout one in. ten thousand of him ever
lays himself liable to lynching, and
when he does the whites lynch him
and him alone, and don't attack every
man, 'and woman, of. his, color in the
neighborhood, as they do in the north.
The reason for the emigration of
the negro to the north has its being
in the same causes that make nearly
ail the other big. troubles inthe world
-the white man's greed mostly the
northern white man's. As everybody
knows, there has been an immense
amount of manufacturing in the north
for the last two years. Northern
capitalists have sent south for negro
workmen. Some of them have sent
because they could not obtain the
necessary white labor. Some others
have sent because they could induce
negroes to work cheaper than white
men. Their agents have been all over
the South, offering negroes work, and
offering to pay their railroad fare
north. As all southern people, know,
there is a large proportion of negroes
in th Smith who will co anvwhere if
someone will pay their railroad fare.
And they are the class of peoplev,who
don't vote because they would rather
spend dollars for little luxuries
than to pay their poll taxes with
them the class that are used, to go going
ing going to the white people for advice
and help, which is seldom refused
them. '
When they reach the north, they
are in a different atmosphere. They
meet white men who expect them to
work much harder than they had to
work in the South, and who won't
give them, anything except what they
pay. for. Thousands of them are as
helpless as children, and, as we have
plenty of evidence, have a child's
longing for home.
At the sarno time, they provoke
the antagonism of the northern work working
ing working people by doing work the north northerners

When a riot starts, northern white

are not at fault at all, but merely the
victims of circumstances. They see a

Not only, it appears, was it the
governor's purpose to reward this
service by placing this man on this
most important board, but also to
have him made the executive ; head,
the chairman of that body.
This intention was disclosed when

Another item of the picayunish po political

A piece of expensive folly was the
calling out of two companies of the
National Guard, to make the long
trip from Tampa to Jacksonville and
back to Bradentown, for the purpose
of guarding one negro murderer.

negro from Jacksonville to the place
of his trial especially since the an anger
ger anger of the populace had cooled and
the assurance of speedy trial had
practically dissipated all serious dan danger

A military guard at Bradentown
while the trial was in progress wa3
doubtless a wise precaution, because
it could not be foretold when public
indignation might prompt a resort to
lynching. But surely one company or
even one squad, with a machine gun,
would have, been amply sufficient,
even in such event.
Only in the event of the acquittal
of the negro or of a postponement of
the trial neither of which could be

this military force, practically ai

The heavy cost incurred in this
foolish proceeding was unnecessary.
The people of Manatee were dis disposed

and to await the verdict of the jury in
his case. They are now disposed to

simply as an escort to the prisoner

Precious blood shed for it,
Bathing it Red.

Purity's prayer for it
Keep it so White.
