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 Mespsorable Day for Gaines-

Last Tuesday was the anniversary of
the birthday of that illustrious Americaln,
Robert B Lee. There was nothing re-
markable about that, however, for osn
the 19th of every January every' trite
Southerner, and thousands of admiring
Northerners are reminded in one way
or another-that the anniversary of the
day on which the immortal first
saw the light has dawned. But to the
stranger within Our gates the surging
crowds on our streets, among whom were
many who wore Confederate uniforms in1
the sixties and offered their very lives
tor a cause they held dear, told that
something mote than the ordinary cele-

in the history of Gainesville. A Confed-

to Stonewall Camp, United Confederate

many of the old Veterans were present
Many Union Veterans were also present,
as were many of the sons and daughters
of those who fought on both sides in that
great Civil War, the eqnal of which was
never known before, and has never since
been known. The veterans who wore ti e
blue, and those who wore the gray muized

the North and South were herg ag.iin li

Members o@ Stonewall Camp, United
Confederate Veterans; Ladles and
We have assembled today for the pur
pose of honoring the memory and corn
memorating the virtues of our immortal
chieftain, and to bestow Crosses of Honti
upon you who so gallantly followed the
standard which he raised upon bloody
field that were "shot sown and bladed
thick wih steel."
The use of symbols, if not of divine or-
igin, was sanctioned and adopted in the
davine economy in order to Instruct, ele-
vate, ennoble, dignify and honor human
nature. The glittering diadem set with
pearls and gems, was worn by IHai who
wAs the visable representation of heaven's
invisible King.
The ancient Greeks placed upon the
brows of their successful heroes the
laurel wreath, symbolic of victory, and It
is eminently fitting that upon the Con-
federate soldier should be placed the
Crosseof Honor-Cross of Honor-if there
is one word that briefly comprehends the
characteristic virtues of our Southern
people, and distinguishes them among
the peoples of the earth, It is that word,
Honor. Crass, symbolle of death, and
life. The government for which yon
fought is no longer living among the
powers of the world. The scepter, which
shows the force of temporal power, has
departed from your nation forever; but
the sacred principles for which you
fought are still alive, increasing in
strength with the flight of years, and in-
spiring bright hopes In the heart of
thousands. Take them Confederate
soldiers, these emblems.-simple crosses,
devoid of material splendor and 6f tem-
poral power, yet wreathed around with
glory; wear them as insignia of your
rank; and, when you are gathered to
your fathers, transmit them untarnished
to )ou children.
To perform this part of the ceremony
we have selected one who, though not an
eye witness to your valor and bravery iu
the days that tried men's souls, is yet,
closely related to one who was willing to
hazard his life to the end that the cause

ir 'y .Senators Stand Read)y te
Approve the Convention, But
Will Await Information.

A WWiaington special says: The
ratification of the Panamna canal trea-
ty sla assured, but there will be no
vote upon It until after certain infor-
imation which the democratic members
of the enate desire has been secured.
That was pactUcally settled at a con-
ferenag of the democratic senators
held Tuesday morning.
So far as the general situation Is
concerned, there has been no change.
There are pfrobably twelve democrats
w o want to vote for ratification and
will do so; but these will Join the oth-
er democrats in insisting that all the
Information they desire be sent to the
senate through the regular official
channels before a vote Is taken.
At the conference Senator Gorman
was authorized to name a committee
of three to draft such resolution as Is
calculated to cover the information
desired. This will follow in its gener-
al lines the Hoar and Georman resolu-
tions, eliminating such features as
have been covered by the communica-
tions already sent to the senate by
the state department.
When this Information has been sent
and considered, a vote will be permit-
ted, but not before.
The democrats who are favorable
to ratification are as anxious as the
others that the senate shall be fully

steps taken in the recognition of
Panama, but with regard to the pol-
lcy which this government has follow-

each senator voting in acckgdance
with hise Individual convictions. This
Insures ratification unless some scan-
dal should be developed which Is not
anticipated. Senator Bacon's illness
has prevented his pressing his resolu-
tion providing for a treaty with Co-
lombia settling all difference between
the countries or in case there can be
no agreement the reference of the
di ruLe to arbitration. That resolu-
tion Is upon the senate table subject
to the call of the Georgia senator.
So long as the treaty Is to be amend-.
ed at all, those who are supporting Its
ratification desire to see it perfected
in every necessary respect. *


Bass Frazier, the Missing Georgia
Tech Student, is Located.
After three years of mystery and
unexplained absence Bass Frazler, the
former Oeorgia Tech student from
Union Springs, Ala.. has been located.
Youn gP'razter Is a corporal in the
26th United States Infantry stationed
at Fort Ringold, Tex. His family has
known of his whereabouts since last
July and while they have made no
secret of their knowledge, only a few
of their, friends knew the facts until
a day or two ago.
Young Frazier Is a corporal in the

niture or worsted hangings to which
they cnn cling. Some botisokeepers,
however, In their desire to be scruptt-

rooms as plain and bare as hospital

because he, too; is human, and can
not be otherwise. Butisa he blain-

Mallory during the memorable
Chipley contest in the Legislature

money unstintingly an the attempt to
defeat John Stockton. Well, they
tell us the truth as far as they go,w,
but they do notgo far enough.
They ftail to tell us that prepardious
were being made to drive Stockton
toWthe wallet any cost, that millions
were back of the nefariots sheme,
and Stockton wait impelled to. sell

be unable to pay his debts. But

It is no crime for a poor man .to
accept money or its equivalent

maases and the powerful few differ

Ingrate who is not loyal to h1is
friends and supporters--he who
does not properly appreciate a fa
vor, or a gift bestowed hi good
faith-and while a man may desire
to be perfectly impartial as between
the many poor and few rich, is it
not reasonable to presume If Senator
Call should be returned to the
United States. Senate his manly nat-
ure would force him to be a partial
judge-in favor of Mr. Morgan-
