The first issue of the Gainesville Star appeared on May 1, 1903. D.E. Godwin was its publisher, and the paper appeared semiweekly at least through October 4, 1904, by which time W.L. Hill had taken over its management. Some issues bear the heading “Twice a Week,” and publisher’s information occasionally referred to the “Gainesville Twice a Week Star.” The Star appears to have been affiliated with the Democratic Party. The Gainesville Star carried reprinted stories from around the world while providing a good share of local news as well. Among the issues discussed regularly in its pages was the adoption in 1904 of a “dry ticket” and the resulting closure of the town’s saloons. The prohibition of alcohol would contribute the following year to the relocation in Gainesville of the University of Florida, the state’s college for men. Gainesville was known for its good drinking water and the lack of any other beverages or activities that might get young men into trouble.

Who They Are, and What They.
Are Candidates For.


Many Candidates for Senate
and Congress, and for Va-
rlou- State Offices.
Tbotre is almost if not quite, an unp're-
c idC4tedt number of candidates presenting
'their claim to the Democratic voters of
I: lorlda -today, and asking to be nouninat-
ed li the coining primary.
In some instances frou four to six or
seven candidates are out for one aid then
Same office, aind by this fact we are as-
s taed that the defeated ones will not feel
l n aome after slie primary, as thee will
be more of the defeated than of the suc-
I aswul ones.
SFor the United States Senate the call-
Sdiidates are the present incumbIent, Hosn
J. P. Taliaferro; Governor W. S. Jen-
.* ing,, and Honi Jno. N. C. Stocktou.
R 9a of. these. candidates have souie
friends ald asuporters, but Mr. Stoc'.ton
seeans t be decidedly in the lead.
S ior Congress Second district, the can-
didates are lBarrs, Alexander, Clark,
" Dngh'erty, McDonald, Watson, and pus-
alwltyethers. Hardly will alliof thenicon-
iU te lU the race to the end, but the four
*. it iamed are expected to do so. They
aO have some friends, but the general
.impogion is that Barrs will win, and
that' Alexander or Clark will come out
Si aeeod beat I the race.
Po the office of Governor, the avowed
candidates are Davis, Broward, Mays and
SBrown, It is hard to decide who is likely
to be nominated. Perhaps more people
Favor Davis than either of the others at
this time, but the friends of Mays. alud
BroWzid. say they are rapidly coming to
the front. .

are Crawford, the present incumbent;

men, but we believe it is generally con-
ceded that Brioome is In the lead.
Among the other State candidates are

the eare, and they promising to "go and

them to have their liberty.
If they go through the holiday season
without further violations it will lbe an
agreea5le enrp-ise to the thinking law-
abiding people who know them. It is to
be hoped they will carry out their prom-
is of good behaviour, for the city has
no d- to punish any one -the object
of line nd imprisonment being as much
for.the protection of the innocent as the
punlhmaent of the guilty.

A Medical DeelolMn Ia1T15B.
In 1715 a cellar digger having been
stifled at Jens. the medical fadhcIulty of
the university decided that the cause
was not thie direct action of the devil,
but a deadly gas. Thereupon Professor
Loescher of the University of Witten-
berg entered a solemn protest, declar-
faculty was "only a proof of the lai-
entalie license, which bais o taken
possession of ua, nd which If we are
not oarnestly on our guard will finally

"You have not taken the medicine I
left," asked the physician with some
anger. "1 declare such actions as that
simply make me los my patience l"
"Well, doctor," meekly sailed the suf-
fering one, "I was afraid if I continued,
to take your medicine you would loee

Pr-esh Air and onaad Health.
There are deny persons who seem
afraid of the fresh air. A little rain. a
little wind, a little fog. a little chill in
the air will keep them within doors.
Going out, they bundle up In clothes so
thickly that one would think they were
tender shrubs transplanted from some
more genial clime. The healthy people,
however, are not the health craika, not
the people who run to the doctor every
time they feel an ache. They are the
people who walk a great deal In the
frosh air, who live In the open as much
as they can and who take a vacation Ini

Steps hayv been taken by the state
department looking to the making of
bribery 'an extraditable offense 'with
foreign powers. The need of more ef-
fective treaties covering this crime Is
manifest. The ezpisures and prosecu-
tions of official corruption in BSt. LouAis.
Mo., and other cities and states hitve
resulted In a number of givers and tak-
ers of bribes becoming fugitives In for-
eign lands. Bribery has not been In-
cluded In extradition treaties hereto6
fore, as the necessity for it has not
arisen. While there may have been
as much official corruption In former
years, there 'has been niore dc-veloped
and brought to light In the Immedinte
past than in the preceding century of
our country's history It should be the
policy of the United States to leave no
place on earth where a corrupt man
fleeing froni this country can rest In
Alaskan Boundary.
After unavailing attenmptsto reach an
understanding on the Alaskan bound-'
ary question through a joint high com-
mission, followed by prolonged negotia-
tions, conducted in an' amicable spirit,
a convention between the United States
1 nd Great Britjain was signed Jan. 24,
X903, providing for an examination of
.the subject by a mixed tribunal of six
members, three on a side, with. a view
to Its final disposition. Ratficatitons
were exchanged' on March 8 last,
whereupon the two governments ap-
pointed their respective members.
Those on behalf of the United States
were Elibu Root, secretary of war;
Henry Cabot Lodge. a enator oft the
:United States, and George Turner, an
ex-senator of the United States, while-
Great Britain named the Bight Hon.:
Lord Alverstone. lord chief justice of
lngitnd; Sir Louis Amable Jette. K.
0. M. (1, retired judge of the supreme
court of Quebec, and A. AI. Aylesworth,
K. 0., of Toronto. This tribunal met
In' London on Sept. 8 under the presia
deny of Lord Alverstone. On the 20th
of October a majority of the tribunal
reached and algned an agreement on
all the questions submitted by the
terms .of the convention. By this
award the right of the United States
to the control of a continuous strip or
border of the mainland shore, skirting
all the tidewater inlets and slnuosltles
of the coast, it confirmed; the entrance
to Portland canal, concerning which
legitimate doubt a.ipeared, is defined
as passing by Tongass Inlet and to the
northwestward' of Wales and Pearse
islands; -a line Is drawn from the head
of Portland canal to the ifty-slxtih de-
gree of north latitude, and the. Interior
border line of the strip Is fixed by lines
connecting certain mountain sutmmilts
lying between Portland canal and
Mount St. Mllas and running along tihe
crest of the divide separating the coast
slope from the inland watershed at the
only part of the frontier where the
drainage ridge approaches the coast
within the distance of ten marine
leagues, stipulated by the treaty as the
extreme width of the strip around the
heads of Lynn canal and its branches.
While the line so traced follows the
provisional demarcation of 1878 at the
crossing of the Btikine. river and that
of 1800 at the summits of the White
and Chilkoot passes, it runs much far-
ther inland from the Klebihi than tlie
temporary line of the later modus vi.
vendl and leaves the entire mining
district of the Porcupine river and Gla.
cler creek within the Jurisdiction of the
United States.,

life of our vico consul had not been
successful, yet the outrage wals symp-
tomntlc' of a state' of excitement and

tinue to favor In all proper ways the

ana purchase, which was 'the first gyst
step In the expansion which made as a
continental nation. The expedition of
Lewis and Clark acroea the continent
followed thereon and marked .the be-
ginning ot the process of exploration
and colonization which thrust our na-
tional boundaries to the Pacific.
The acquisition of the Oregon coun-
try, Including the present states of
Oregon and Washington, wae a fact of
Immense Importance In our history,

tennial of our establishment upon the
western coast by the 'expedition of
Lewls snd Clark Is to be celebrated at
Portland, Ore., by an exposition In the
summer of 1006, and this event Should
receive recognition and support from
the national government.

Development .o Alaska.
I call your special attention to thb
territory of Alaska. The country 19
developing rapidly, and It has an as
sured future. The mineral wealth It
great and has- as yet hardly been tap
pod. The flahserles, It wisely handled
and kept under national control, wil
be a business as permanent as any oth
er and of the utmost importance to the
people. The forests, If properly guard
ed, will form Another great source oa
wealth. Portions of Ahnska are ftted
for farming and stock raising, althougli
the methods must be adapted to thb
peculiar conditions of the country
.Proper land laws -should be enacted<
and the survey of the putblIc lands im
mediatoly begun. Coaaland lan wi
ahotl'd be provided whereby the coa
land entryminn may make hil locatioE
and secure patent under methods kin
dred to those now prescribed for home
stead and mineral entrynmen, Salmom
hatcheries, exclusively under govern
ment control, should be established
The cable should be extendOO. front
Sitka westward. Wagon roads an<
trails should be built and the building
of railroads promoted In all legItimUti
ways. Lighthouses should be bull
along the coast. Attention ., 9opd be
paid to the needs of the AJlsga In
dians. Provision should be iatde to:
an .oficor, with deputies, to study thel
needs, relieve their immediate want
and help them adapt themselves to thi
new conditions.
I recommend that an approprlatlot
be made for building lighthouses lit
Hawaii and taking possessloi of those<
already built. The territory should b4
reimbursed for whatever, amounts I
has already expended for lighthouses
The governor should be empowered t(
suspend or remove any official appoint
td by him, without subnditting ,th(
matter 1o the legislature.
lthe Plllpplanes. and Porto ilUeo.
Of our Insular possessions, the Philip
pines and -Porto Rico, It Is gratifyini
to say that their steady progress hai
been such as to make it unitecesenrj
to spend much time In discussing them
Yet the congress should ever keep ix
mind that a peculiar obligation rest.
upon us to further In every way the
welfare of .these communities. The
Philippines ,ihouIld be knit closer to ui
by tariff arrangements. It would, o
course, be impossible suddenly to rals
the people of the Islands to the hig)
pitch of Industrial prosperity and o
governmental efficiency to which they
will in the end by degrees attain, and
the caution and moderation shown iU
developing them have been among the
main reasons why this development
has hitherto gone on so smoothly
Scrupulous care has been taken in the
choice of governinental agents and the
entire ellimination of partisan politics
from the public service. The conditlor
)f the Islanders Is In material things
'ar better than ever before, while their
governmental. Intellectual and moral
idrance hIas kept pace with their ma-
terial advance. No one people ever
boniefited another people more than we
hnvo benefited the Filiplnos by taking
possession of the Islands.
Preservattoe of FP'orest.
The work of reclamation of the arid
lands of the west is progressing steadIlly
and. satisfactorily under the terms of
the law settling aside the proceeds
from the disposal of public lands.t
The study of the opportunities of
reclamation of the vast extent of arid
land shows That whether this reclama-
tion Is done by Indivilduils, corpora-
tiois or the state, the sources of water
supply must be effectively protected
and the reservoirs guarded by the pres-
ervation of the forests at the head-
watera of the streams. The necessity
for perpetuating, our forest resources,
whether In public or private hands, Is
recognized now as never before. It Is
recommended that all tatters pertain-
nlag to forest reserves, except those in-
volving or pertaining to land titles, be
consolidated in the bureau of forestry
of the department of agriculture.
The cotton growing states have re-
cently been Invaded by a weevil that
hlas done much damage and threatens
the entire cotton Industry. I suggest
to the congress the prompt enactment
of such remedial legislation as Its Judg-
ment inmay approve.
No other class of our citizens de-
serves so well of the nation as those
to whom the nation owes Its very be-
ing; the veterans of the civil war. BSpe-
eldl attention Is asked .to the excellent
work of the penalont burtatu In exptedit-
Ing and disposing of penas!on claims.
During the fiscal year ending July 1,
1903, the bureau settled 251,982 claims.
an average of 825 claims for each
working day of the year. The number
of settlements since July 1,. 1903. hap
been .in excess of last year's average.
approaching 1,000 claims for each
working day, and It Is believed that
the work of the buren will be current
at the close of the present fiscal year.

The completion of the reform of' the
ciTU service is recognisid by good citi.
maps esrywbere .as a matter of the
highest public Importanoe, and the suc-
coseof the merit system largely depends
upon the effectiveness of the rules and.
the machinery provided for their en-
forcement. A very gratifying spirit of
friendly co-operation exists in all the
departments of the government in the
enforcement and uniform observance
of both the letter and spirit of the civil
service act.
The Army and Navy.
The effect of the laws providing a
general staff for the army and for the
more effective use of the national guard
has been excellent. Great Improve-
merit has been made In the efficiency
of our army In recent years. Such
schools as those erected at Fort Leav-
enworth and Fort Riley and the Insti-
tution of fall maneuver work accoinm-
plish salIsfactory results. ThIe good ef-
fect of these maneuvers upon the na-
tlonel guard Is marked, and ample ap-
propriation should be moade to enable
the guardsmen of the several states to
share in the benefit. The government
should as soon ns possible secure s-iet-
able permanent camp sites for u1.illl.'y
maneuvers in the various sections of
the country.
I heartily congratulate the congress
-tpoon the steady progress In building
up the American. navy. We. cannot
afford a let-up In this great work. To
stand stUl means to go back. There
should be no cessation l.n adding to the
effective units of the lighting strength
of the fleet. Meanwhile the navy de-
partment and tlie bcficers of the navy
are doing well their part by providing
constant service at sea under condi-
tions akin to those of actual warfare.
.Our officers and enlisted men are learn-
Ing to handle the battleships, cruisers
and torpedo boats with high efficiency
In fleet and squadron fortuattons, and
the standard of unarksnmanship Is being
steadily raised. The best work ashore
Is indispensable, but the lilghest dilty
of. a naval officer is to exercise com-
mand at sea. It Is eminently desirable
that a naval general staff should be
established; / '
I"thostan Canaul,
By the eat of June 28, 1902, the con-
gress authorized tbh president to enter
Into treaty: witie Colombia tor the
building of the canal across the lath-
imus of Panama. It beLng provided that
In the event of failure to secure suhe
treaty after the lapse of a reasonable
time recourse should be had to build-
lag a canal through Nicaragua. It hIas
nobt been necessary to consider this tl-
ternattve, as I mn enabled to lay be-
fore tle senate a treaty providing for
the biTildlng of the. canal across the

route which commended Itself to the
deliberate judgment of the congresra
anil we can now acquire by treaty the
right to construct the camal over this
route. ImThe question now, therefore, Is
not by which route the Isthimian canal
shall be built, for that qIestlon thas

not we shall have an Istbmiiann canal.

to thIe government whilchl controlled

New Treaty Wit esmaUAM.
IEvery effort has been mad6 by the
government of the United Statea to per-
suade Colombia to follow a course
which was essentially not only to out
Interests and to the Interests of the
world, but to the Interests of Coloma-
bla itself. These efforts have failed,
and Colombia, by .her persaitence ln lwe
pulsing the advances that have 6ee"
made, has forced us for the sake t
our own honor and. of the Interest and
well being, not merely of our own peo
pie, but of the people of the lsthmus of
Panama and the people of the cvill4ed
countries of the world, to take decialte
steps, to bring to an end a condition of
affairs which had become Intolerable.
The new republic of Panama Immedi-
alely offered to negotiate a treaty with
us. This treaty I herewith submit.

ed than li the treaty with C(olmbia

The riot was caused by bitter polit-

He has but little to say on the
money question, but that little is
said in a way that shows very con-
clusively that he has not yet be-
come a convert to Bryanism.
His utterances on the immigra-

grants to admit to this country, and
the kind to turn away-the natural

He favors an international agree-

possible the hardships of war ont
noncombattants by exempting pri-
vate property from capture at sea
He advocates this as a matter of
humanity, and thinks private prop-
erty-in times of war-should be as
safe on sea as on land.
He speaks of the reported assas
aiuation of our vice consul at Beirot
early in July of the present year
(which happily turned out to be
erroneous), his dispatching a small
squadron to the port, the quiet and
gladness its arrival caused, the con-

Probably but a comparatively
small number of the citizens of the
United States will sead so long a
message, but many who do read it,
will doubtless be willing to admit
that Congress has received weaker
messages fr m Presidents than this
one is.

"I have voted for that man twice,
but without my mind changes very
materially I will never vote for
him again," said an intelligent
looking country gentleman as he
pointed to a certain man who has
been several times a candidate.
"Why," said a gentleman who
heard the remark, "will you not
vote for him again?" "Because,"
said the country gentleman,

thought surely he had been led to

and I really felt badly about it, but
when he again became a candidate
he was as familiar and affable as

I did my beat for him, and until
the election was over he seemed

.r Had you noticed that nearly all
who are pleading for a late pri-
mary, are those who are known to
be opposed to the prituary plan?
It's a fact. Then what does it all
mean? Those who favor the pri-
mary, which makes the poorest
cntryman as powerful in politics
as the most wealthy man in a city,
should favor an early primary, if
for no other reason than because
the anti-primary advocates are call-
tug for a late primary.

The devil never tries to convince
men that it is not wrong .to get
drunk. He just tells them there is
no harm in the moderate use of liq-
uor; aud in this way he destroys
many. Every drunkard was first
a moderate drinker, and without
moderate drinking there would be
no drunkenness. Remember this.
The trial of James E. Starkc, for
the dastardly murder of his brother-
in-law, John Angel. in Jackson-
ville a few months ago, has been
going on in that city for several
days, and the defendant's attornies

it might have added that engaged

gas ligh ts.

Calling a man "brother" at
church and in the lodge room. and
hardly speaking to him at all at any
other place, is a very poor way of
doing things. Intelligent people
are not apt to believe you are just
right if you do so.

it, you ought to do so. .Suppose
you owe the grocer a dollar, the

gist a dollar, the druggist owgs the
wood-cutter a dollar, and the wood.

Then suppose you have a dollar,

You could pay the grocer, the gro-
cer could pay the shoe dealer, the
shoe dealer could pay the druggist,
the druggist could pay the wood-
cutter, the wood-cutter could pay
the editor, and then-happy
thought--the editor could pay the
printer, and six dollars of debt
would be paid with the use of a siL-
gle dollar, and six souls would be

that the editor has a soul, and each
