The party asking for food 'gathered
about the train in the Hitzing quar

well-to-do people of Vienna live, said
Captain R. Rosettr of the Rumanian
army. They told the Rumanians that
turnips, beets and potatoes constitute
almost the only food of a large part
of the population of Austria.
There were more than a 300 men,
women and children in the party that
surrounded the train, said Captain
Rosetti, and almost every one ex
pressed horror at the continuance of
the war and biterly reproached .Ger

which they found themselves.
Their faces were pinched and pale
and showed, unmistakably that they
had borne intense privations and suf
fering. Several among the ..number
declared there must soon be a wide
spread revolution in Austria if steps
were not taken to feed the population.
Captain Rosetti offered one of those
who sought help 10 crowns. The
mojiey was declined on the ground
that no food "could be bought for it.

An election will be held tomorrow
to fill the place made vacant by the
resignation of Mr. Geo. A. Nash in

the fourth ward. The candidates are
Messrs. B. Goldman, R. C. Loveridge
and J. W. Johnson.

After a careful consideration of
the circumstances and the qualifica

tions of the candidates, all of whom

we have known for years, the Star
thinks it is its duty to support Mr.
Goldman. There is no doubt that he
is far more capable of rendering good
service to the city than either of his
opponents.
The Star favors and upholds the
following policies in city affairs. It
wants the people to own and control
their own water and electric plant
and receive the benefit. "It wants the
plant properly finished and put in
condition to do the people good serv service.
ice. service. Itf wants the present charter
carried out by the election of a city
manager who. has the time and busi business
ness business qualifications to attend to the
office. .In short, it wants to pursue
the policy it decided on years ago
and has followed ever since, and
which Mayor Chace and one, perhaps
two, members of the council agree
with and are faithfully trying to
carry out. J
We have had an interview with Mr.
Goldman and have his word that the
principles we have announced are also
his, and that if elected he will do his
best to maintain them. We have had
much business dealing with Mr. Gold Goldman
man Goldman in the ten or twelve years he has
been in Ocala, and have found that
when he made a promise he stuck to
it, whether it paid hhn to do so or not.
Mr. Goldman came to Ocala about

a aozen years ago. tie nas bunt a

little business up into a big one. He

stands well in the commercial world.

He has great energy and considerable
ability. He is able to well represent
his ward and work for the entire
town, and we believe that if elected
he will do so.

His principle opponent is Mr. R. C.
Loveridge. Mr. Loveridge has not

informed us of his views. So far as

we know, he is in accord with the

Star in its ideas of what is best for
the city. Our objection to Mr. Love

ridge is that he is entirely too old to

fill the office. He has lived in Ocala

for a number of years, efficiently
looking after his own property in the
north of town. We iave never heard
of his taking any prominent part in

public affairs or doing a noticeable

share in any war work for the public

good. It is strange, to us why, after

remaining in the background for so

many years, he has rushed forward

and strenuously "sought an office he is

physically unable to fill. We should
support Mr, Loveridge against an in incompetent
competent incompetent or dishonest man, but we

think Mr. Goldman can do much

more work than he can and do it bet better.
ter. better. '

It is hardly necessary to discuss

the third candidate. If the people of
this city are in a frame of mind that
will cause them to elect him, there is
no use in trying to discuss anything
with them.

We do not know whether we are

backing a winning candidate or not.
Mr. Loveridge has considerable
strength and there is some prejudice
against Mr. Goldman. When the' war
began four years ago, he favored

Germany against Russia, and some
of our people are of the mistaken

opinion that he is yet a partisan of

the Huns. A

Mr. Goldman is a good American.

His younger brother is with the Am

erican army in France; his eldest son

is training at Camp Jackson, and he

himself cheerfully supports the gov

ernment in all its policies. Mr. Gold Goldman
man Goldman is a Jew. He was born in Rus

sia, under the imperial Russian gov

ernment, which, as every American

knows, was very unjust and cruel to
the Jews. Ee has witnessed much

PREFACE
For 14 years the kaiser was
my patient. AH I know of him
and all that he told me came to
me while the relation of patient
and dentist existed between us.
For that reason I felt at first
that, no matter how vital to the
allied cause might be the Infor Information
mation Information I could give as to the kai kaiser's
ser's kaiser's viewpoint, ambitions and
plans, the requirements of pro professional
fessional professional ethics must seal my
lips and compel me to withhold
it from the world at large.
When, however, I considered
the grave crisis that confronts
the world and in which my own
country is playing so important
a part, and realized that what I
knew of the kaiser might prove
of some value to civilization, I
concluded that my patriotic duty
was paramount and rose su superior
perior superior to any of the ordinary de demands
mands demands of professional ethics.
In this conclusion 1 was
strengthened by the urgent solici solicitation
tation solicitation of the leaders of my pro
fession who were most emphatic
in their contention that my
ethical qualms were entirely un unwarranted
warranted unwarranted in view of all the cir circumstances.

When we declared war against Ger Germany,
many, Germany, therefore, while I was still an
American citizen as patriotic an
American, I believe, as might be found
anywhere I had lived in Germany so
long, had developed so many profes professional
sional professional friendships in Germany's most
favored circles and was so generally
regarded as a particular,, favorite of
the kaiser himself, that I found It hard
to realize that nevertheless I had be become
come become an alien enemy.
The same day the breaking off of
diplomatic relations was announced,
the German newspapers had published
the provisions of an old treaty be between
tween between Germany and the United States
which gave Americans in Germany
and Germans in America nine months
after a declaration of war between the
two nations within which to- settle
their affairs and leave the country.
"This treaty," the newspapers point pointed
ed pointed out, "was made in the time of Fred Frederick
erick Frederick the Great. It has never been
repealed. Germany will respect It."
As there were so many more Germans
in America than there were Americans
in Germany, this prompt announce announcement
ment announcement of Germany's intentions regard regarding
ing regarding this treaty was quite understand understandable
able understandable and it seemed most improbable
that Germany would adopt any harsh
measures toward Americans and
thereby Invite reprisals.
Had the situation been reversed, of
course, the Germans would undoubt undoubtedly

America, and, in that event, this an ancient

fate of that which guaranteed Bel Belgium's

per" paper" more or less would never have
been allowed to interfere with Ger Germany's
many's Germany's "destiny."

Influential Germans who called to

hope that I was not planning to leave

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that i3, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And. f you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.

"THE KAISER AS I KNEW
HIM FOR FOURTEEN YEARS'

' (Continued on Second Page)
Had the kaiser been in Berlin at'
the time, I might, of course, have had
an ODtiortunitv tn tnt the onpstion to
him squarely as to what my fate might
be If war were declared, but he was
away. The court chamberlain had
been appointed but a short time before
and I did not know him personally,
but his predecessor. Count August von
Eulenburg, one of the wisest and most
respected men in Germany, 'was one
of my oldest patients and I decided to
discuss the situation with him. Un Unfortunately,
fortunately, Unfortunately, however, I found him too
ill to receive me. He was eighty years
old and, although unusually well pre preserved,
served, preserved, was in no condition on this
occasion to receive visitors.
Another influential patient of mine
whom I sought out at this time was
ex-Ambassador von Sturm. Although
he was now retired from official life,
he had formerly been a powerful fig figure
ure figure in German state circles and still
kept more or less in touch with the
new court chamberlain and others in
high office. His nephew was under
secretary of foreign affairs.
I found the ex-ambassador at his
private apartment in the Adlon hotel.
"What will happen to Americans,"
I asked, if my country declares war
against' Germany Y
"That, doctor,- will depend entirely
upon how America treats our sub subjects,"
jects," subjects," he replied, somewhat more
coldly than I had expected of him. "If
America interns Germans, of course,
we shall undoubtedly treat Americans
the same way, and you could hardly
expect any special consideration, al although,
though, although, if you will write a letter to the
court chamberlain, who Is a personal
friend of mine, I shall see that he gets
it."
"But, excellency," I replied, "there Is
a treaty between Germany and Amer America,
ica, America, I understand which gives the sub subjects
jects subjects or citizens of one country who
happen to- be, sojourning In the other
when war Is declared nine months
within which to close up their affairs
and leave. "Would not that protect
me?" V ; :
"Of course, doctor," Sie answered,
"Germany will respect the treaty if
America does, and then there will be
no trouble. It seens to me you must
await developments and, in the mean meantime
time meantime you" have no cause for worry."
"Suppose some of your "subjects in
America should act up and start
blowing up bridges or munition fac factories
tories factories and should be lynched, which
they probably would be," I suggested,
"what would Germany's course be?"
"What Germany would do then,
doctor," he : replied,' slowly and
thoughtfully,' as though such a contin contingency
gency contingency had never occurred to liim be before
fore before ''really, doctor, I dont know
what we would do I"

Another Incident which made me
feel that I could proceed with my prep preparations

year of a most extraordinary post card
from the kaiser which, It occurred to
me, was quite significant as to his in
tentions regarding my welfare. On one
aide was his picture and on the other,
written and signed in English in his
own handwriting, was the message
"Dear Doctor Davis:
"Wishing you a very good year for
1917. WHXIAM L R."
This was the first message of, Its

from time to time and which were
autographed by him, were always
signed in German. When, on February

was immediately followed by the

felt that the kaiser must have fore

THE KAISER AS I KNEW
HIM FOR FOURTEEN YEARS
(Continued from Third Page)
that my certificate had. been granted.
Then I commenced active preparations
to dispose of my German practice and
return home.
My second reason for wanting to get
out of Germany as soon as possible
was -the fact that food conditions In
Germany were becoming more pre-:
carious every v day. My wife and l
feared that our child, who was two
years old, might suffer from lack of
proper nourishment If we remained
and I determined that no matter how
long It might be necessary for me to
remain in Berlin, my. wife and child
at any rate should leave at the earliest
possible moment.
My third reason, however, was by
far the most insistent of all.
I had become convinced that what I
knew of the kaiser and bis plans, now
that we were at war, ought to be com communicated
municated communicated to America without delay
and that the only way to do that ade adequately
quately adequately would be to get home as soon
as I possibly could, no matter what
personal sacrifice might be involved in
abandoning my European practice and
Interests.
It is true that in the early years of
my relationship with the kaiser our
conversations naturally embraced only
the most general of subjects, but In
later years, when he came to know me
better, he cast aside all reserve and
talked to me on whatever was upper uppermost
most uppermost in his mind at the time. After
the war started that, of course, formed
the principal subject' of our discus discussions
sions discussions and the part that America, was
playing in the conflict was frequently
brought up because of the fact that I'
was an American. f
One memorable interview I had had
with him influenced me perhaps more
than any other single factor to hasten
the settlement of my European affairs
and return home.
It was in the fall of 1916. The kai kaiser
ser kaiser had come to me for professional
attention, and after my work wasom wasom-pleted
pleted wasom-pleted he remained to discuss some
of the aspects of the war. Perhaps the
fact that I had just returned from a
visit to America made him more than
usually eager for a chat with me.
We had discussed various phases of
the war, when the kaiser changed the
subject abruptly with the question:
"Davis, what's the matter with your
country?"
"In what respect, your majesty r I
asked.
"Why Is it that your country Is so
unfair to Germany? Why do you per persist
sist persist in supplying munitions and money
to the allies? Why doesn't your pres president
ident president treat the European warring na nations
tions nations the same as he treated Mexico
by putting an embargo on munitions
and letting us fight this thing out our ourselves?
selves? ourselves? You do not ship munitions to
us, why do yotf ship them to the other
side?"
I was on such terms with the kaiser
that I did not hesitate to answer his
question with another.
i "I have always understood, your
majesty, that during the Russian-Jap
anese war, Germany continually sup sup-plied
plied sup-plied munitions to Russia. Why was
that any more justifiable than America
supplying munitions to the allies?
Then again, in the Spanish-American
" -- v
"Davis, you surprise me!" the kai kaiser
ser kaiser interrupted, rising from the opei opei-atlng
atlng opei-atlng chair, in which he had remained,
walking towards me, throwing back
his shoulders and rising to his full
height. "The cases are entirely differ different
ent different When we helped Russia against
Japan we were helping a white race
against a yellow race, don't ever for forget
get forget that don't ever forget that But
with America, that is certainly not the
"case. Your country is acting from
purely mercenary motives. It is a
case of dollars, dollars, dollars !" and
each time he repeated the word he
struck his partially helpless left hand
violently with his powerful right.
"America values dollars more than she
values German lives! She thinks it
right to shoot down my people."
He had worked himself up to a de-"
gree-of indignation which I .had seen
him display only on two or three pre previous
vious previous occasions, and I must confess I
was reluctant to start a fresh outburst
by answering his arguments. His
eyes, usually soft and kindly, flashed
fire as he advanced towards me and
slowly and incisively declared : "Davis,
America must be punished
for--her actions!" v
In that expression, which he repeat
ed on subsequent occasions in pre
cisely the same words and with the
same measured emphasis, I knew that
he revealed mostly clearly what his at attitude
titude attitude was and will ever toward
this country. V

A AMERICAN
"What is your definition of an Am American,
erican, American, Mr. Skipper," J. Walker Pope,
federal food administrator for Polk
county, fired "at E. E. Skipper, a
wealthy cattle man of Bartow, at a
late hearing on a sgar violation, with
which Skipper was charged.
"Why a man who stands for every everything
thing everything a good citizen should," Skipper
answered.
"Are you, an American citizen, Mr.
Skipper?" was the next question.
"Certainly, I am," Skipper shot back
"And I suppose your wilful disre
gard of the Upited States food admin!
istration's f regulations allowing each
American citizen two pounds of sugar
a month is what is to be expected of
a good citizen," Mr. -Pope queried.
When Skipper failed to answer, Mr.
Pope said, "That may be your idea of
a good citizen, Mr. Skipper. It isn't
mine. It isn't the idea of the several
million men in the United States, who
are good American citizens."
Skipper, against whom charges
were preferred of having takeu his
own sugar in a can to the hotels and
boarding houses at which he stopped
and having declared he'd have, all the
sugpr he wanted in spite of the food
administration regulations, failed to
prove", his innftcense during the trial
and at the close, Mr. Pope shot at him,
"If you are really guilty as evidence
submitted makes apparent, you are a
cowardly, selfish and, unpatriotic Am American."

Skip'per is one of the wealthiest
men in Polk county, owning several
thousand acres of land and head of
cattle. He has two sons in servjee.
During the hearing the fact came to
light that he does not own any war
savings stamps nor any Liberty Loan
bonds. He admitted he brought a
$1000 bond the last drive but ex exchanged

made on it f qr a Fod car. N
Mr. Pope advised him, "Get ac acquainted

others to go without by using more
