President Wilson's rejection of
Pope Benedict's peace proposals is
about what the country expected of
him, and probably about what the
pope expected.
Mr. Wilson has taken a very high
ground, and it is the duty of every
American who loves the honor and
hopes for the future peace and pros prosperity
perity prosperity of his country, to help him
maintain it. He makes it plain that
America has gone into this war more
fcr the benefit of the entire world
than from any other reason. Not for
our profit, not entirely for our own
safety, but for the safety of the
world have we drawn the sword. It
is a position no other nation has so
far taken. It makes America the
eader in public -spirit of the whole
world. It is a position that no sac
rifice is too great for us to make in-
order for us to keep it.
it is pointed out that there is con
siderable similarity between the
pope's proposals of this : month and
those of Mr. Wilson last winter.
America was at that time neutral,
and was trying to remain neutral.
Today it is at war, and must stand
by its allies first. The pope is in a
position somewhat similar to that of
Mr. Wilson eight months ago. lie
probably favors the allies. It would
detract from his influence for him to
say so.
Mr. Wilson's direct denunciation of
the German government as being un untrustworthy
trustworthy untrustworthy and his clearly pro pronounced
nounced pronounced intention of erivincr favorable
terms to the German people whenever
they put themselves in a position to
ask for them, is consistent with
America's position, and likely to have
great influence in ending the war.
In-case the ruling class oi uer uer-manv
manv uer-manv remains in Dower, a loner and
bloody war is ahead of us. In spite
of their fearful losses, the Central
Powers yet have millions of men and
they are in position to tise them to
greater advantage than the Allies
are to use their, forces. It is the evi evident
dent evident nlan of the German ereneral staff
to hold the Russians off with a min
imum of men, and to in the meantime
try to break' France down and starve
Great Britain. It is only the entry
of America into the war that can
prevent this plan being carried out.
It mav succeed anyhow, in which
case America would need to fight
single-handed against victorious Ger Germany
many Germany and its allies. America need
not fear this result. Aroused and
united, this country will be a match
for the woild.
In the meantime, the common peo
ple of Germany are suffering greatly.
Their warlords are living in comiort,
in comparative luxury, while they are
starving, shivering and sending their
men to the front. If they-could once
understand that they could nave
npace simnlv bv uDsettinff their ty
rants, they might make a try for it,
and a reunited world could settle
down in safetv to repair the damage
of war. It is Mr. Wilson's policy that
is more likely to bring about this re
sult than any other, it isn't a policy
of blooH and iron. It is a policy of
fight until the other fellow has enough
and then help him up 11 ne win let

The governor then advised me to
go ahead and finisk said report, which
I have done. In that report I filed
before the governor (27) affidavits
given by some of Ocala and Marion

(7) affidavits from (7) negro citizens.
As to Mr. Galloway's statement
that I had been refused certain af affidavits

or at any other time, is untrue, as I
have never called on any man in this

said nothing or done nothing that I

What is conceded to have been the
prettiest scrap that ever took place
in Ocala was pulled off in one of our
stores this morning. Two prominent
citizens met and in the course of an
otherwise amiable conversation a
reference to political matters caused
some impolite remarks. One word
brought on another, then one cit.
handed the other a wallop, which was
immediately returned. The fight that
followed, in the opinion of all who
saw it, was an errorless game. No
rule was broken, so far as we have
heard. Nobody interfered; in fact, it
was too perfectly nice a fight to stop.
At the end of seven minutes, with' no
advantage to either, one combatant
said to the other, "Lets call it a
draw," and the other saidl "I was just
iiuping to near you say .,. sometnmg
like that." So they shook hands and
washed up, and the incident ended. We
would tell their names but for two
reasons; one is, they are too modest,
and the other is everybody knows
who they are anyhow. We commend
their example to a lot of people who
are jawing at each other in each
other's absence.

Following suit, Mr. Herman Smith,
wishing to do something for his coun

his services. Mr. Jesse Freer, see seeing

want to-say right here that Jesse is

that stuff in him that was the mak-

Drake gave him the once over and
said that he looked good to him. He
then passed him over to the doctor,
who said there was the making of a
fine soldier there and okayed him, and
then some freakish whim struck Mas
ter Leo that he wanted to be an of
ficer from the start, v Naturally that
caused a deadlock, so back home he
comes to re-enlist in Walter Nelson's
