HANG THE KAISER
Editor Star: I notice from current
press reports that some leading Eng English
lish English statesmen seem to advocate the
trial and execution of the kaiser, and
that some English and French law lawyers
yers lawyers and professors of international
law, are undertaking to justify such
a course, alleging jurisdiction in the
courts of the Allies.
In my humble opinion it is folly
sheer folly for the Allies to try the
kaiser for any offense, for in an
court of the Allies the kaiser would
be tried "and convicted before he ap
peared therein; his conviction would
be a foregone conclusion. We do not
want to lower the- standard of our
courts. We had better shoot him
without trial. To require the German
people to try him would be equiva
lent to an order to convict and ex execute
ecute execute him and would be subject to the
same objections above made.
While the above reasons might not
appeal to everyone, it is now perfect perfectly
ly perfectly apparent that the whole world is
interested to see order restored in
Germany and to obtain a stable form
of government in Germany, and this
can only be accomplished through the
more intelligent classes in Germany.
As Germany was thoroughly organ organized
ized organized politically before and during the
war, it will be easily understood that
nearly all of the more .intelligent
class, or the majority of that, class,
must be ptiblic known as ppporters
of the government and policies of the
kaiser, and therefore, to completely
discredit that class by the public and
bloody execution Qf the kaiser would
simply be tantamount to turning
Germany over to the Bolsheviki, as
only those citizens of Germany whose
lack of intelligence made them ob obscure
scure obscure would be available as public
leaders. Our interests and the inter interests
ests interests of the world now demand that
for the present we ignore the kaiser
as far as possible, and let us hope
that he will remain in Holland and
hatch no plots. -But to console those
who advocate his execution we might
refer to Napoleon, to Santa Anna or
Warren Hastings and countless
others in ancient and modern times
who were not executed. The Engljsh
handled Napoleon rather gently in b
ruder age than this, but even for that
they were never quite forgiven by

Editor Star: Under tte of Dec.
7th I notice your item with reference
to Ocala making an effort to stop
travelers while going through our
city, and as I have just returned from
a trip through the tourist section of
the state, consider this an opportune
time to state facts as I saw them.
To begin with Ocala has fully as
many, if not more, attractions, for
tourists than the majority of towns,
such as Leesburg, Orlando, Kissim Kissim-mee,
mee, Kissim-mee, Winter Haven, Bartow, etc. By
this statement I do not mean to dis discourage
courage discourage improvements to our city.
Ori the contrary have at times, to my
sorrow, been a little too anxious, as
for instance leveling and grading the
ball grounds for league teams, v and
planting palmetto trees on the city
civic center, without any visible signs
of being paid for same, but I have
the best interests of the city at
heart, and am ready to get stung
again in a good cause.
From my observation what a tour tourist
ist tourist wants most is comfortable hotels
and boarding houses and good roads.
Accentr on the good roads.
Marion county has built fairly
good roads, but evidently does not or
cannot for some reason, give said
roads any attention after same. are
built. For instance, we traveled on
a clay road from Leesburg to Or Orlando
lando Orlando via Clermont after a week's
rain, and said road was cut up in ruts
nearly a foot deep in places, and on
our return over this road the next
day found same in perfect condition,
m fact, the best clay road in Florida,
and said road was put in this condi condition
tion condition by two teams with drags, driven
by men who knew their business;
whereas, the road from Wildwood to
Belleview, or Belleview to Leesburg,
both good clay roads of the same
material, are in such condition that
you can hardly make five miles per
hour in places.
It seems folly to me for the county

but make minor repairs.

commissioners will bear these facts
in mind, and if necessary take a trip

When the state of Florida was in

in many place in Florida these "alter

state and handled exclusively by .the
I. I. trustees board.
. To buv and handle the other "alter
nate sections," that part of the land
given to certain railroads, there was
years ago organized in Florida a
powerful company which by purchase
or gift, lease or otherwise, secured
these sections which the said certain
railroads had received.
Down in Mississippi, and at Savan

meeting some time ago. They invited

found that the government demands

So the legislature of Florida was
called to pass an act authorizing and

there may be connected holdings of
these lands, so there wall be no chance

The extra session of the legislature

France, October 30.
Dear Sister: I am getting along as
well as can be expected. My left foot
has gone clown to just about the
right size, but my right foot is yet
swollen badly, but it doesn't hurt so
much. I was shot badly in the calf
of my leg and about four inches
above the ankle my leg was cut near nearly
ly nearly in two. My heel string is in two
and a large hole left. But I will be
able to walk on it again. No bones
are broken, only my big toe joint got
enough done to it, but it is doing fine.
I am still in hopes of being home
Christmas, more so than ever now. I
think maybe that they will carry me
back to the United States. I hope so
and I want to be carried home when
I get there. The nurses and doctors
do all for me that they know how to
make it comfortable. I would be
treated no better at home. But I sure
would like to be with you until I could
go again. I think 111 get more gootf
eats than we have here. You know
more what I like to eat and we can't
get such stuff here as we have at
home. Your brother,
