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.

since, that lie owes anything to the peo-

first election at least, to political trickery,
and combination. I Ie has become arro-

that tine position of superintendent.of ed-
ucation of this State ii his by right to the

oppose hint as an intruder, without right
to ask the suffrage of the people, so long

He measures largely the qualification
of teachers by their fidelity to him.
Sheats is much interested in the higher
educational interests of the State, and
yet he sends his own children out of the
State to be educated; why is this?
This is the first time this political ns-
nipulator has hail to come before the
people for nomination, and he will be so
completely snowed under by the ballots
of the intelligent voters that the lack of
faith in him thus expressed will stagger
him.-DeFuniak Herald.

The People Rallying to Holloway.

effectually injure the candidacy of Hon.
W. Mi. Holloway, for State School Super-
intendent, have met with prompt rebuff
in various sections. While the element
In "tate affairs that seeks to ruin any
man who assumtes an attitude of fearless
independence of its dictation, has its bat-

port. Those who oppose bringing poll-
tics into our educational system are right-
ly in favor of retiring Czar Sheats to pri-
vate life.-Palathk Times-Hetald.

of New. York,' and 6 rank B. Hayno,
leaders of the jbupl campaign, as the
speakers. W. P. Brown was unable
to fill an engagement to participate.
Mr, Brittin contended that bull cam-
paigns wece not responsible for pro-
valling prices. '
"No cotton king over added a cent
a poupd to the price of cotton," said
Mr. Brittin. "The Inexorable law of
supply and demand la alone responsl-
ble for its fluctuations. Cotton la high
because the supply sl short. Produc-
tion has not kept pace with consump-
The boll weevil, Mr. Brittin said,
alone stood In the way of an adequate
supply. Ultimately, too, the south
would raise all the cotton required by
the world's peeds.
Mr. Sully's reception was unusually

"I disclaim hat some have desig-
ated J4 the honor of world-wide fame.
through such manipulations of the cot-
ton market as results in fortunes to
nyelelf and mlsfortupe to others," he
said, "Whatever good fortune may
have come to me. and such others as
have been In accord with my views,
Is not the result of manipulation, but
tle legitimate product of recognmling
existing, as wel a well natural conditions.
"The progress of the nineteenth cen.
tury Is being extended with L con-
stantly accelerated movement and
gives promise of gathering in its folds
all humanity," he said. "it as within
tbis. sphere of development that Ues
most wonderful and marvelous oppor-
tunities for the future. The world's
demands for supplies give promise of
a steady and continuous Incrense.
"We have already reached a stage
where It Isa ia need of a 2,000,00(1-bale
crop of American cotton."
Mr. Sully thought the south had not
reaelved such value for Its cotton as
the existing labor conditions Justify.
Mr. Hayne spoke of the effect the
.enhanced value of cotton had had on
the prosperity of the south. From
the laborer to the capitalist, from the
barkeepero the clergyman, no one liv-
ing n the southouth had failed to derive
some benefit. When carton was at 6
cents the small farmer was no butter
oft than his labor. Ilia children were
in rags and his wife and daughters
gathered the crop. His lands went for
taxes, He sunk more and more into
debt. High-priced cotton had filled
the hanks with money, had wiped out
mortgages, had fattened tho farmer's
purse and made the south .iore pros;
porous than at any time In Lts history.
Mr. Hayneo said he would hate to feel
that this proalirlity was at the ex-
pense of the mhila. Their misfortune
was only temporary As the years roll
by the south will consume more and
more of Its cotton, and hig',prlcorl
goods will bring more prosperity to the
mills than low-priced cotton. Mr.
Haome said be expected to see the
south raise 15,000,000 balvs of cotton
a year.

But Russian and Jap Prepare.
for War, Nevertheless.


All High Diplomats in European Coun.
tries Believe a bonflilo Inovita-
ble-Woshlngton Qffloiale
are of same Opinion.

A Washington spelal says; Despite
the mediation talk sent out from Gom4
of the European capitals, the officials
of the state department are convinced
that the only possibility of peace lies
in the acceptance by Russia of the Jap-
anese proposals, which were outlined
In.a Tokto dispatch dated January 6.
A copy of the Japanese proposals
was formally presented to Secretary
Hay for his Information by the Japan-
eso minister, Mr. Takahlra, Thursday.
This was found to be almost verbatim
as they had been given out from high
Japanese sources a week ago, for the
evident purpose of having the world
clearly utnderstand not only the moder-
ation anti justice of Japan's position,
but also how vitally these demands
interested all nations having or hoping
to have commerce In Manchuria.
A statement of the Russian reply,
though not a verbatim copy of Ii, was
aloo given Secretary Hay. This state-
rment taller with that heretofore print-
ed. It shows that there is no apparent
possibility of agreement upon Manchu-
ria, and that upon many esOBsential
points the two powers aro far apart
regarding Korea. While it is stated In
latest cables from Tokia that the last
note from Japan Is not in the nature
of an ultimatum and the negotiations
may accordingly be carried on for
some days, the belief is strong among
officials Iq Washington that the crisis
will come within probably two weeks,
which Is aasumod to bo the timo neces-
sary to get the two new cruisers now
In the Suoz canal Into Japanese waters.
Preparing for War.
In the meantime war preparations
are being pushed rapidly forward. It
lu the opinion of military authorities
that Japanese troops are being landed
In southern Koroe, though as the Jap-
anese are closely censoring all cables,
th1is cannot be definitely known.
Japan has rejected the Russian pro-
posals, making counter demands with
regard to Manchuria which Busaia, In
the light of her oft i'-.pented declara-
tions, cannot. be expectc(i to accept.
The way Is'clear, uowt-ver, for some
diplomatic parle3lng. Once ready on
land and sea, Japan will become ng-
gresolve, for she feels that under no
circumatancen would khio fall to get
as much a Russlia Is now otforing, and
she feels confident of demonstrating
her right to more andl taking It. As
a very highly officlil has put It: "Ja-
pan, feeling she could not bo worse
off than she would be by accepting tiie
rtusalan offer, Is bound to havo a run
for her money."
One renaon which leads Washlngton
aulhoritlesa 1 believe there will be
comparatively little delay is that Ja-
pan has reached the lImit of her re-
sources so far as preparation goes,
that she can gain nothing by further
delay, while Russia on the other hand
may gain percepilbly. In the light of
these conditions, the Washington and
London governments regard war as
the only outcome.


Plans Set on Foot to Establish inde-
pendent Packing Houses.
The proposition to incorporate a
company sof live stock men for the pur-
pose of establishing Independent pack-
Ing buses in the ctock centers of the

cussieon in the National livo Stock con

Men are just like hogs, declares
a disheartened editor, however dis-
tastef~l this may sound to.the bogs.
When a hog eats corn, every other
hog will trot along behind him and
squeal and whine and toady for a
bite. but just let the front hog get
in a tight with his head fast in a
crack, and every son of a sow will
jump on him and tear him to pieces.
Just so with man. As long as a
man is prosperous amud has money,
he can't keep friends off with a base
ball bat. The moment he is unfor-
tunate and his wealth is gone, he is
not only snubbed by his former
alleged friends, but they at once
begin to do him all the harm pos-
sible. When a man starts up grade
the world starts In behind and
pushes. Whets he starts down
grade the world ateps twonp pide
and greases the block.-Exchinge.
He is a creature to be pitied who
will turn from a cause he knows to
be right because some one, or any
number of persons, snub him, and
turn the "cold shoulder" on him
for doing his duty. Such a person
la really not respected by even those
who snub him into doing their bid-
tdinu. Men who are no account at
all are not apt to have any anmiesa,
nor do people respect them, but
even enemies wll-4n the secret of
their hearts-respect the men who
do their duty as they see, t though
it hairlips their prospects of finan-
cial gain, and scuttles their hope of
popular recognition by tMoms among
whom they live, and move, and do.
Arthur T. Williams, State Sena-
tor from Nassau couity.-Is a tem-
perance advocate, and when bin

several weeks ago, and went wet,
8tsator Williams felt that he did
not reprMnt the astiment of the

who favor the liquor traffic to re.-

The editor of the Star iha al-
ways favored a dispensary as pref-
erable to the licensed saloon. The
former Is decidedly better, but what
is still better is. no saloon at nil;
and we here and unow call on the
temperance people of Alachua to

prohibition and are now advocating
a dispensary,
