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.

True Democracy Against PIt-Falls

The question of holding the Denm-
ocratic primary for the- nomination of
officers is a very importAnt one. It
is being discussed all over th State,
both by Individuals and newspapers.
Mr. J. M. Barrs, who wrote the Dem-
ocratic platform establishing the pri-
maries., writes the following: letter on
the a.ubject:
Editor of The" Metrobpoias:
"There has .been a great detaal dad
on the subject of "early" '.and ."lateV'
primaries, which shows that the ,wrt-
tore either did not understand t-he
subject, or else were desirous of pro
d-icing dissensions where .there is no
need of dissension. I have not beard
ot any one advocating a primary ear-
lier than April, and a primary held
in April 'would not be an "early pri-
mary"; that is, it would not be niuclh
earlier than is absolutely nbeeesary.
The primaries for electing delegates
to County Conventiona In' thiA State
have usually been held in April or
May any year when delegates to the
National Convention were to be elect.
ed: and the adoption of the primary
system requiring a majority vote, 'and
therefore requiring a second primary
in many instanes, makes it necessary
to hold the first primary early enough
that the second primary. may be held
in time to bleot delegates to the Na-
tional Convention. Unless It is intend-
ed to have a State Convention held
to elect delegates to the National Con-
vention, "it is absolutely necessary that
the first primary shall be In Ajiril, or,
at the latest, in the early part of
May; and the people of this State are
In no humor to permit the corporation
element in the party (which has so
peri-lstently opposed the primary sys-
tem in the past, and which is now
so loudly proclaiming Its opposition
to what they call an "early primary"),

primary for nomination of officers.

should under no olroumatances be giv'

This insidious attempt to corrupt the

way. Suabervlency to Republican In-
flueness of any sort Ie Incoempatible

In factril tte e)see any evidence
tat the corporation trust newspapers
referred to In that platform are at'
tempting to deceive the people, with.
out recognizing the wisdom ot the
Itsertl of that plank in the platform
-a-nd I have never seen a better II-
luatration of the attempt of those
neweapapir to mislead Democrats
than we now have in their attempt to
create dissension in the party to brings
about the holding of a convention.

Time to elect delegates to the Na
tloial Convention, and that is arbo
lately necessary.
The Democratic Platform provide
for the nomination of all candldatel
at the same primary.
In addition to that, the primary
election law under which trion primary
is to bb hold provides in Section 14
as. follows:
"The primary election of a political
party FOR ALL PURPOSES shall be
held' throughout the State on the ame
day, but the primary elections for dif-
ferent political parties may be held on
'separate' days."
Therefore, we could no)t, under that
law, hold a primary for the election
of delegates to a County Conventlon
to elect delegates to a State Convyqn-
,tion to elect delegate to a National
Convention, and' then .imbeiquently
hold another primary to nonminate:can
didates for office. 'And- It ,Oniat hns

Committee Meets in Washington and
Has Rarmonloes Seelen-Terri-
torial Considerations En.
tered Into Balloting.

The democratic national committee
met at the Shorbham hotel In Wash.
ilgton Tuesday for the purpose of do-
ciding on the time and place for hold-
Ing the next democratic convention.
The convention was called to order
at noon by Chairman James K, Jones,
of Arkansas.
Among those present with profiles
were Senator DuBois, of Idaho; Rep-
resentative Ilnd, of Minnesota, and Jo-
seph K .Ohl. for Georgia.
The meeting of the committee was
entirely harmonious. Mikch of the
morning session, practically all of It,
was devoted to the.contest for com-
mtttee place from the District of Co-
lombla. For elgat years there has
been war between two factions in the
District. Chairman Jones had endeav-
ored'to settle thie temporarily by nam-
ing his former secretary, Eldwin Bef-
ton, as District of Coirambia member,
but a large element of the committed
wanted James L. Norris. In order that
there might be no embarrassment, Mr.
Sefton declined the appointment, and
then, after a good deal of discussion.
the whole matter was referred to a
special committee, which nas Lae effect
of carrying it over to the next meet-
nlg of the cOmmittee, which will be
Just before the assembling of the na-
tional convention.
At 1:80 the committee took a recoso

After a lively contest .LJau. fi'
selected as. the-p)de, -and July 8 asj the
a t 6f the convention.
The coz4itliona of 1896 are. therefore
reversed. In that memorable year the
republicans met at St. Louis and the
democrats at Chicago.
St. Loutl wop primarily because the
offet of that city was considered the
better. New York was never a se-
rious opponent.
The Chicago proeoitlon included a
contribution of forty .ousand 'dollars
toward defraying the eonveation ex-
penses, but out of this would have to
come payment for the convention hall.
The St. Louis people offered at least
forty-five thousand dollars and the free
use of the'great coliseum.
In the balloting over the question
of place, territorial considerations fig-
ured largely. The members living
nearest Chicago supported bhat city,
while those people more conveniently
located with reference to St. Louis,
cast their votes for the exposition city.
Then, too, the fact that the exposition
would be in full blast was in St.
Louis' f1vor.
The balance of power was, however,
held by the half dozen members who
on the first ballot voted for Now York.
They ali went to St. Louis on the sec-
ond ballot.
There Is no significance to the com-
mittee's action so far as possible pres-
idential nominees are concerned.
There was no talk of posalbilitles in
this line and the lines were at no time
drawn In a way that could possibly be
construed as having bearing for or
against any presidential possibility.

General order No. 1.

Paragraph 1: In compliance .wlth
section two, article third, of the by-
laws of the United Confedorae Vet-

A special from Seattle, Wasn., says:
The steamer Clallam, of the Seattle-
Victoria fleet, went down early Satur-
day morning midway between Smith
IslAnd and Dungeness. In the Straits
of Juan de Puca. Fifty-two persons
were drowned. The veLe5/l was a reg-
ular passenger packet and was not
yet a year old. When she was launch-
ed at TacomaJasi April the littlee of
champagne was not broken, but fell
and slid down along the side of the
vessel. Old seanieti ptredleted that
disaster would overtake the vessol
within a year, and It was said at the
time It would be a difficult matter to
secure a crew to man the vessel.
Women and Children Perish.
Every woman and child aboard the
Clallam perished, within three miles
of bore, and at a time'when it ap-
peared that the boat would he saved.
Every effort was made to save the wo-
men and children lin the lifeboats.
They were placed on the first boat
to leave the ship. which captain Law-
rence, a Yukon pilot, volunteered to
command, and Which was manned by
deck bands. The frail craft went
down within sight of the Clallam and
a second lifeboat was killed with men
passengers and in command of Sec
ond Officer Clarlu, was probably lost
a few minutes later. Aboard the Clal-
lam watchers saw waves sweep pas-
sengers from their hold on the- seats
and hurl them into the water. Though
the life boat was righted later, a dill.
gent search has failed to find trace of
her. More passengers and members
of the crew were lost when -a third
*lie..Jpat, f swamped In an attempt
to launch. ""
Three passengers who has fastened
life preservers about them were pick-
ed up by the steamer Rehata. They
had died from exposure.-
The Clallam left Port Townsend
for Victoria Friday noon, facing a ter-
riflc southern gale.
Within sight of her destination a
huge sea overwhelmed the little
steamer, emashing Inher headlights,
flooding her hold with water, extin-
gulshing the fires beneath her blil-
era and placing her at tne mercy of
a howling gale,
All this happened Friday afternoon.
The culmination of the tragedy was
postponed for several agonizing hours.
Bravely the officers and crew of the
helpless hulk worked to save the
boat and the eighty souls aboard her,
but In vain. Staunch as she was, the
Clillam could not stand the terrific

General Order No. 2.
Paragraph 1. Death, who strikes
with equal hand at the door of tithe
cottage and the palace gato. has been
busy at his appointed worL He has
this time Invaded the precincts of the
federation of the United Confederate
Veterans, carrying off its chief eoxaen-

patriotic John B. Gordo"a fesa,thp?
most honored and beloved of all our
comrades Is no more. He has passed
over (he river and now rests with he4.
comrades on the other side. No an-
nouncement could cause more poig:
nant sorrow to the survivors of the
confederate armies than the brief
statement that General John B. Gor-
don is dead. Skillful in command,
with ability second only to the Immor-
tal Lee; brave in action beyond com-
pare, shirking no responsibility and
fearing no danger in battle, he was
an Ideal soldier, In civil life ever look-
Ing to the welfare of the people of
the state of which he was chief exec-
utive and whom he represented in the
senate of the United States, constant-
ly laboring for the conditions of those
with whom he was associated, ho was
a model citizen As t c1 bmnmasder-
in chief of the United oonTederate
Veterans organization from its birth
to his death, he ever threw his pow-
erful Influence to the betterment t.4f
the affairs of his old arny aseociati,'l
or those dependent upon them. Full
of love for all, pure in find, heart
and behavior, a consistent follower of
his Maker, he was possibly, the ggett,
est representative of the old courtly
southern gentleman, and hie place
cannot be Cile4d.
Second. Hi military career is an
open book, known and read of all
men ,and no words of the command-

changes between the United States

Wellington's 'Courtesy.
A strong light is thrown on the es-
sential quality of Wellington's mind
by the incident of the broken bell.
Whehen le pulled -it several, times and
no footma-n appeared until after great
delay, he "stormed with very strong
language" at' the man for 'neglect of
duty, whereupon the duke said: "Yes,
I was wrong. I am very-sori'Ty, Will-
lanm, and beg your pardon." To thoe
little girl who was present he added:
"Always own when you are in the
wrong." This Is almost a test qual-
ity inu life. It is rarely found witholiut
other great moral virtues and, Intel-
lectuial strength. It 'helps us to un-
derstand the man who faced Napo-
leon's strategy with invisible cob]-"
ness, and hung on until Blucher came
up.-Review of Wellington.
