The Daily Sun was based in Gainesville, the seat of Alachua County and shipping center for Florida’s citrus region. The newspaper was formed through the merger in 1890 of the Gainesville Advocate and the Daily Morning Record. The Daily Sun described itself as a “democratic” paper. It was published daily, except Mondays, by Henry Hamilton McCreary, the scion of a prominent southern family. After completing a degree at the University of Kentucky, McCreary established himself as a newspaper editor at the age of twenty. McCreary also rose to prominence as a politician in the Democratic Party, first as a city councilman and later as a member of the state assembly, to which he was re-elected several times. McCreary considered himself a staunch patriot and fervently supported industrialization as a means of strengthening Florida and the nation. McCreary’s wife, born Irene Richardson, was well connected in the civic networks of Gainesville and northeast Florida and served both as vice-president of the Florida Federation of Women’s Clubs and president of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The Daily Sun was continued, in 1903, by the Gainesville Daily Sun which briefly carried the title of the Gainesville Sun.

Property in at Ginesve Was


Which He Had Drawn Without Cost to
A. 4. Parker, a Colore4 Man, Which
Brought Protest of- White people.
Major Thomas Explains. -
A few days ago The Sun received an
anonymous letter, signed "Pur-
chaser," which protested against the
sale of property to colored people in
what is known as the Thomas Addition
to Gainesville. and, rs will be remem-
bend, was sub-divided into lots and
sold at auction. At this sale it was
advertised that the property was re-
served for white people only, with the
result that the property sold like the
proverbial hot eake.
This letter would have received ree-
ognition and been published, had the
author signed his name; but inasmuch
as it was an anonymous document,
something whieh this paper has repeat-
edly warned its readers would find its
way to the waste basket1 it met its
fate. The letter stated, however, that
a certain colored man by the name of
Parker had purchased a lot, and in-
tended to erect his home.
The reporter of The Sun called upon
W. R. Thomas Saturday, told him of
the letter. and received the following
Major Thomas' Statement.
"At the time I sold these lots at aue-
tion, I made public announcement
that no bids would be received from
colored persons and so no property in
that tract sold to them,
"I have adhered strictly to that ob-
ligation upon my part.
"At that sale a free lot was given by
drawing and W. J. Hunter of this city
was the lucky party. I understand
that he has sold his lot, which coat him
nothing, to A. J. Parker, a colored
"I regret this, but am powerless to
do anything, since I have no control
over the future disposition of any of
the property after I have sold it."


Twenty Bales of Cotton Turned Out
in Two Days by Smith & Johnson.
Judging from the manner in which
the fleecy staple is being turned out in
Hawthorn at this time, one would
judge that the season is well on in
that section.
IMessrs, Smith & Johnson, cotton
buyers and ginners at Hawthorn. in a
letter to The Sun under date of the
27th inst., say:
"We have seen so much in reference
to first cotton grown this season. that
we desire to let the public hear from
Sour section. We ginned on 22nd and
26th inst. twenty bales, every pound
grown by us this season. We regard
this as the largest individual lot gin-
ned in the State up to date. We have
two hundred ind fifty acres in cotton.
Crop early and very short. A part of
this cotton was sent to Savannah, and
partto II. F. Datton & Co."
