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.

A "Lakeland Man's Reasons for Favor-
Ing Stockton. .
At the Didval Hotel in Jacksonville last
Saturday night one gentleman was heard
t1l say to another, "Who do you favor
for Senator?" Stockton," was the ready
answer, aid then the btockton man con-
tinued: "L never saw Stockton in my
life, until a few nights ago. I was on a
train coming to Jacksonville, and on the
train was a man who seemed to be intox-
Icated. He was telling the passengers
about a letter he had received that
brought to him great sorrow-he seemed
all broken up-said he was on his way to
Jacksonville, and wished some one would
assist him from the train when it arrived
there, and hIlp him to get out to the
home of some friends, whom -he said
would take care of him."
"About the time he made.the request
the train arrived at Palatka, and a man
whom I afterwards learned was Jno. N. C.
S'ockton, got on. The poor fellow went
over with his troubles to Mr. Stockton,
and again said he wished some body
would assist him from the train when k
arrived in Jacksonville, and Mr. Stock-
ton said "i'11 help vou, I'll see that you
get off all aight, and I'll help you to a
carriage." And be did; 1 watched them;
when the tain stood still in the 'nlon
depot John'Stockton took that fellow by
the arm, assisted him through the crowd
at the depot, put him in a carriage, sad
instructed the driver where to carry him
to his friends. As that candidate for the
United States Senate was helping that
poor, distressed unfortunate Into that
carriage. I resolved to cast my vote for
Jno. N. C. Stockton, and do all I can for
him. I live in Lakeland, and that act of
Stockton will certainly increase his vote
is that section,"

Representative Lamer Beg(ne Action
ln Complilane With. Resolution
Passed In Flriida LegIslature.
Sensational Charger.

A. Washington special says: The
house .of representatives by formal
resolutiont has instructed its judiciary
committee to investigate the charges
against United States District Judge
Charles Swayne, of Florida, with a
view to possible Impeachment. This
action was taken at Thursday's ses-
sion after a two hours' debate.
The resolution .was Introduced by
Judge Lamar, -the new representative
from Florl4a, and -had as its basis
resolutions adopted by the Florida leg-.
islature last August.
Judge Lamar, Mr. Clayton, of Ala-
bama, and Mr. Williams, of Mississip-
pi, led the fight for the adoption of the
Impeachment resolution, while General
Grosvenor, of. Ohio, Mr. Payne, of
New York, Mr. Lacey, of lowa, and
other republican leaders, supported
-Mr. Lacey's motion to refer.
Mr. -Lamar, rising to a question of
privilege, after announcing that he
would offer a resolution, in which
would be- embodied a joint resolution
of the Florida legislature, said:
"In pursuance of that joint. resolu-
tion, I desire to impeach Charles
Bwayne, judge of the United States
district court for the northern district
of Florida, with high crimes and mis-
The resolution, after reciting in the
preamble thd resolution of the Flor-
Ida .legislature, says:
"Resolved, That the committee on
the Jdicieary be directed to Inquire
and report whether the action of the
house is sequisite concerning the offi-
cial misconduct of Charles Swayne,
Judge of the United States district
court for the northern district of
FP6rlds, and say whether said Judge
has held terms of his court as requir-
ed by law, whether he has continuous-
ly and persistently absented himself
from said state, and whether his acts
and omissions In his Office of Judge
have been such ae In any degree to
deprive the people of that district of
the benefits of the court therein to
amount to a dental of Justice; whethib
the said.Judqe has been guilty of cor-
rupt conduct ip office and whether his
administration of his office has result.
ed in Injury and wrong to litigants
of his court."
The resolution further authorizes
the Judiciary committee to send for
persons and papers and to do other
things essential to the investigation.
Mr. Lamar moved the adoption of
the resolution. Mr. Grosvenor sug-
gested that there should be specific
charges; that the house should go
slowly and be extremely careful. The
house Is not a grand jury, he said.
Messrs. Lacy. Payne and Fuller, re-
publicans, expressed In the same vein.
In reply, Mr. LAmar said:
"As I understand, this objection
made by the gentlemen from Ohio
/(Mr. Grosvenor), Is that I do not
charge Judge Swayne with an specific
crime. I do charge him generally with
high crimes and misdemeanors. Why
should I be forced to state, when the
proof is to be submitted to the com-
mittee on judiciary, the specific mat-
ters upon which that general allega-
tion Is made. Every single crime that
this Judge Is capable of committing is
charged when I charge him of high
crimes and misdemeanors. But If the
gentleman d sires that I shall make
my charges seriatim, I charge -this
judge first, with continued, persslatent
and, if you please, pernicious absentee-
ism from his district; second, with cor.-
rupt otfficial conduct based on several
matters; third, I charge Judge Swayne
with maladministration of Judicial
matters In his court, so much as to
embarrass bankrupts and annihilate
the assets of litigants and others ap-
pearing within hie Jurisdiction." J
Mr. Williams, the minority leader,
contended, for the adoption of the re.s-
olution, citing former cases and argu-
ing that the verbal statement of Mr.
Lamar as sufficient.
The motion to refer the resolution Zo
the Judiciary committee was lost, when
the resolution as offered by Mr. Lamar
wea adopted with a few dissenting

Charge Made that Fusion Offoaials
Were Taking Unfair Metlede to
Gain Centrol by -Meoae of
the Negro Voete.

A uniform series of text books to
be used for the next five years in the
common schools of Georgia was final-
ly selected and adopted Tuesday
night by the state school nook com-
mission, in session at Atlanta, after
more than a month of arduous toll
In studying bids, reports of the sub-
commission, hundreds of sample of
books submitted and hearing from nua
merous representatives of book pub-
lishing concerns as to the merits of
their various publications.
. The figures of the various contracts
show that a great amount will be
saved annually to the people of Geor-
gia, the reduction ranging from 25 to
50 per cent In some cases below the
prices for which these books can at
present be obtained of dealers. This
will mean a saving of hundreds of
thousands of dollars to the people of
Georgia, it having been estimated that
the saving will amount to more than
$600,000 during the five-year period.
The commission reached its con-
clusion at a final meeting held at the
governor's mansion, after the mont
careful and faithful consideration of
all the books offered, studying them
from a standpoint of quality as well
as of price.
Dissatisfied with the first bids that
wero offered, the commission rejected
them all, and called for new ones
throughout. These bids were much
below those first submitted, and were
In every way satisfactory. Old books
will be received in exchange for new
ones on the same subject, at a value
all the way from 50 to 68 2-3 per cent
of the new book.
The books adopted by the commis-
sion will be used In the public schools
next year, and (the contractors will be
called on to supply them at as early
a date as possible. The successful
bidders will confer with Attorney Gen-
eral Hart at once, and the contracts
will be signed without delay, it being
the desire of the commission to get
the books as near the first of the year
as is possible.
A statement was Issaued by the state
school book commission relative ic1
the books adopted, and giving the
commission's reason for the actions
taken .
Following are the books selected:

*The dance of the ostrich o one o.
those peculiar native customs which
certain fowls develop, without any ap-
parent Incentive except It may be the
law of heredity. It usually occurs at
early morning, when the young, strong
btrds are let out of their Inclosure, and
is said to be entirely due to awkward-
ness and uncertainty. This leads them
to advance and turn In a dervish-like
whirl which is very quaint and fantas-
tic, as they floao about assisting their
motions by their outspread wings.
They circle and reverse almost as a
waltser would, and when a large num-
ber of these strange birds go through
their dancing antics It is almost Im-
possible to believe that they have not
been taught the accomplishment by a
dancing master. Their walts often
ends In disaster, as they break each
other's legs, which is certain death, or
become dismy and fall down in a de-
moralled heap. The kick of an ostrich
has been known to destroy life.

In a suburban school a teacher.ones
proved that It may be embarrassing to
use oneself as sa illustration. She was
hearing a class in spelling and defining
words. The word "orphan" had been
correctly spelled, but none of the class
seemed to know its meaning. After
asking one or two of them she said en-
"Now, try again. I am an orphan.
Now can't some of you guess what it
means ?'
The blank 'look on their faces re-
mained until one of the scholars raised
his hand and said, In the most guile-
less manner possible:
"It's some one that wants to get mar-
riled and can't get a husband!"
The Vest a Minor Oarmenet.
The waistcoat has always been a
garment of minor consideration. It
appeared and disappeared according to
the requirements of the varying cos-
tumes In earlier times, and first had
official recognition under the reign of
Charles II. It was in 1666 that Pepys
makes mention of the waistcoat In his
diary: "This day the king began to
put on his vest, and I did see several
persons of the house of lords and com-
mons wearing a long cassock close to
the body."

what would you do?"
The professor looked very serious
