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.

Sheats Charges Forgery and Pub-
lishes Several Affidavits.


He Names Several Prominent
Oalnesvillians and Speaks
[Continued from Friday's issue. 1
Again on that night when f hqppeneil
in upon that so-called "inliginationm
meeting," which meeting, as well as' my
utterances on that occasion, has been tlie
subject of much newspaper unisrepresemn-
tation. Uut I did say front the platform
with Mr. Holloway and other white pro-
moters of the bogus nekro ".'cient fic
Normal and Indus.rlal Institute" in the
audience: "WasUhngton was not invited
to speal in the white school autlitorium,
nor to be a member, part or parcel, of the
white superintendents' conference, but
that his address would be entirely a side
issue and for the benefitl of n egroes andl
such whites as might desire to hear hiit,
and that no oommunicatlon perumitting
any other construction could be pro-
duced." All were silent. I went on
further to say, that if Rev. Mr llolley,
Rivers, Holloway and those appearing on
the letter-head as promoters of tie afore-
said negro institute could invite Washi.
Ingtoti to speak in Gainesville (I have
since been told that the Rev. Mr. liolley
said when his invitation was extendled
that if Washington was not pelnlilted to
speak in the school auditorium t lie wold
throw open the doors of his church to
himp fqr the truth of which bs.iteintuut I
must rely upon others). I di ii not see
why it was such a crime that I stho.l
have reextended the inivitatien Ihlein I
was led to believe by the letter of the it.-
gro teacher Dubose that it was (lte dlcirc
of the friends of his school. I)ullie'
uow denies writing this letter, but thlii
is now immaterial. I also, from the pint.
form, put the direct question to f. lM.
Rivers, as all in the audience can testify) .
"'P1 you not wr.te a letter to hooker
Washington asking him to speak isn
Gainesville?" He replied: "Vets, lit I
wrote the letter for Mr. Holley."
I then want to say that I unihdrstool
this whole disturbance to be political and
designed to besmi-ch mte, bill llat I would
put them on notice then anil there that it
had caused me o decide i mny ow.i mind
dqst\ely tlat day to stand for reelection.
Thef again, during the Alachua caLiu
paign, Mr. Holloway, for the want of
-something better upon which to urge his
nomination, made that Washington affair
* and one other circumtsltance even more
ridiculous and false, as his chief grounds
(o qsi qig support for the nomination of
Late Superintendent of Public Instluc-
tion. 4e said repeatedly in his speeches
that, "He (meaning me) did invite Book-
er Washington to speak in the white
school laditorium," "to the Coqnty Su,
perinteldenta' hoqventlicn," and "to tell
Wlitae Aeats how to educate white chil-
dpen,'" and 'r can produce the evidence
of the fect." All of the above could not
be quoted, in one sentence, as the several
ttterqqtaWere taken down from differ-
ant speeche. He was challenged to pro-
i duoethe letter and told nearly as often as
he spoke that he could not produce any
such evidence. Now, nfter all this had
preceded, when be went to put his cam-
paign thunder in cold type with this
Waschington fair as ch chief bolt, the
temiptation became too strong foir such a
man not to heck up what he ad so stoutly
and perslstemtly contended was a fact;
then it witee the t orgery was comn
iittad. aqd thp words "in the white

two banks
We first called on Dr. B. P. Riclanirs,
cashier of H. F. hDutton Co.'s bank.
We asked the Doctor how deposits in the
bank for the month of January, 1904,
compared with those of January, 1903.
and after a little figuring lie said:
"The deposits int this bank ini January,
1904, were aboti l o20,0oo itn excel ss of
what they were in January, 1903. The
deposits by new depositors --umany of
whom were never depositors until after
the saloons were closed-is about 60,0ooo.
Closing the saloons certainly helped busi-
We next interviewed Mr. H. E. Taylor,
cashier *in the First National Ilank.
Mr. Taylor was asked about the same
question that was asked Dr. Richards,
and he said; "The business of this bank
has been much better during the past
als months than ever before in its his-
tory. Many deposits arelarger than for-
merly and new depositors are coming
in every day." Mr. Will McKinstry, a
bookkeeper in the bank, also declared
that the business of the institution had
been better during the past six monthsl
than ever before, and that it was increas-
ing daily.

Dr. Richards, of Dutton & Co.'s bank,
was asked if he thought the closing of
the saloons in the county had anything
to do with the increased business, and
he saBl: "Yes, I am sure It helped busi-
ness; ainny people who never had money
on deposit before the saloons were closed,
are now depositors. There is no doubt
that closing the saloons helped business
in Alachua county; especially so in the
country and smaller towns. The coun-
try merchants' deposits are much larger
than when thesaloons were open."
Mr. Taylor, of the First National, was
asked if he thought the closing of sa-
loons had anything to do with the in-
c.rased deposits in his bank, and he said:
"I don't know that that had anything to
do with it; business is better, but I don't
astribute it to the saloons being closed;
that may, or may not, have had some-
thing to do with it." "Well, said the
Star man, "is there anything you aon
attribute the increase of business to."
And.Mr. Taylor replied: "I think it is
probably due to the general improve-
meat throughout the county," "Well,
to what is, the general improvement
throughout the countydue?" Mr. Taylor
was then asked, and his reply was: "To
the good prices for cotton, phosphate.
naval stores, lumber, etc." But Mr.
Taylor admitted that he was sure that
closing the saloons had not hurt business,
and Mr. McKlnstry declared that he was
uae business had been benefitted by the

Beautifully Presented at Tabernacle
Friday Night.
The first attraction in the Bible taber-
nacle was presented Priday night, when
notwithstanding the very inclement
weather nearly three hundred persons
were there to see and hear presented
Oratorio Bethlehem presented by a choir
of more than fifty simrhgrs frum the vari-
ous churches of the city and elsewhere.
The singers were trained by Prof. Oliver
Arnold, the sweet gospel singer who Is
hers with Dr. Strpuse, aud the presenta-
tion was conducted ny Prof. Arnoldl.
The attraction was pronounced a grand
affair by all who were present, and but
for the extreme bad weather on that
nillit It is believed that the attendance
would have been more than double
what It twas.
Prof. Atnold is a graduate of the Boe-
ton Conservatory of Music, and is one of
the best singers in the country. Mrs.
Trus Denby, this city, presided at the
plao during the psreentation of Oratorio
Bethlehem. 8he is one of the most ac-
complished and up-to-date pianolsts In
these Bate. and the elAir was competed of
some very exsellentsingers.

had been scandalized by the govern:
ment, which had treated her with
cruelty, Mrs. Lorenz broke down and
wept bitterly. She was led from the
room by Mrs. Machen and Mrs. Phil-
lips, Mr. Machen's sslter. She recov
ered her composure during the recess
and occupied her accUstomed place in
The first witness for the defense
was Miss Ins S. Llobhart, chief clerk
of the special free delivery division,
and Machen's former stenographer.
She described Machen's various duties,
which she said made it physically Im-
possible for him to personally attend
to everything. She said that from
July, 1901, she personally Initialed all
the mall with Machen's initials and
prior to that date she placed his Inl-
tUals probably on one-half of the mall.

question of what papers she should or
should not Initial. She declared that

self and Mahen., In writing Macben's

ter Oleseral WWnne knew as well as his
chetf clerk, Mr. Hawley. A recess was
taoen at this bolnt.
Continuing her testimony when the
trial was resumed, Miss Llebhardt said
that a great deal of Machen's time was
taken up In interviewing congressmen
and postmasters regarding the exten-
sion of the rural free delivery. Asked
speolfically about Groff fasteners, Miss
Liebhardt said that special orders
were not brought to Machen's atten-
Uon ,because the fastener was "a fixed
supply." In cases involving a new ar-
ticle, however, she said she would
speak to the superintendent about it
-It was brought out .that the order giv-
en the Groffs for fasteners at the re-
duced price of $1.36 each, was dated
July 16, 1899, and was signed by Ma.
ghen himself.
The witness had not concluded when
court adjourned until Friday.

Following his release, Mayor Har-

the Associated Press:
"The only possible feature which the

with the Iroquois fire disaster was the

Japan Is Tired of Waiting for RuIin.
to Reply-A Summary of the
Points of Olffereng.e

A special from Toklo says: The
Japanese government has diplomatl-
cally Intimated to Baron DO Roaen, the
Russian miulster, that an early re-
sponse Is desired to Japan's recent,
note to Ruassa.
It is calculated that the Japan-
ese note reached the Iusela cabinet on
the afternoon of January 16, and It 'is
felt that sufficient time has elapsed
for its consideration and the prepare,
tion of a pespdnse. *
The Jepanese government is con-
scious of the possible necessities of
the military and naval situation and
Is unwilling to permit evasions and
delays which are designed to gain
The future cod'rse of the Japanese
government is a carefully guarded se-
cret. The length of time that Japan is
prepared to await the pleasure of Rus-
sia is unknown. It seems probable
that it has been determined to act de-
cisively within a few days. The popu-
lar temper has long opposed further
A special Tuesday from Paris says:
The Russian answer has not yet been
sent to Japan and It now develops that
the points of difference threat,... he
possibility of a deadlock In the nego.
tiations. These points are:
Pirst. In Manchuria Russ!a declltes
to concede such unrestricted admis-
sion of Japanese as will permit the es-
tablishment of Japanese settlements.
Second. In Korea Russia insists that
Japan's privileged position should not
permit her to establish control of the
egress and Ingress of the sea of Japin
by fortifying the straits of Korea.
Concerning these points and the gen-
eral status of the negotiations, the fol-
lowing emi-officlal statement, emanat-
ing from the highest sources, is made:
"The question Is undergoing alter-
nate phases of depression and encour-
agement. For'three or four days It
was -believed that a final agreement
was very near at hand, but Monday
the situation became a little less hope-
"Concerning Korea, Japan Is show-
ing great caution In accepting Russia's
assurances of Japanese paramount au-
thority In Korea. Therefore, Japan
feels that her safety requires the right
to fort!fy the coast southeast of Koroa,
particularly fPisan, the point opposite
the Japanese Island of Tsu-Shina. but
Russia Is unwilling to concede this.
believing the effect will be to make
the sea of Japan a closed sea.
"Concerning Manchuria, the chlet
difficulty still open Is the right to es-
tablish Japanese settlements. Russia
does not appear to object to the full
liberty of Japanese coming or going
Indevldually for purposes of trade or
concede the rights permitting Japanese
settlements in villages, similar to the
settlements at Shanghai.
"There are still strong hopes that
the parties may find means of adjust.
Ing these points, but for the present
they constitute the main issues ro-
malning open."

The verdict of guilty came like a

years at hard labor.
Wright trembled violently, then

fldl4eulouw Aetion of Chloago Coron)r's
Jury Palls to Held in Tuthlll'a
Court and Mayor Is Released.

At Chicago Thursday afternoon,
Mayor Carter Harrison was ordered by
Judge Riobard W. Tutplll to be Im-
.mediately discharged from custody
without any responsibility for the
wholesale loss of life In the Iroquols
theatre fire.
The Judge declared that the mayor
was in no way whatever guilty or lia-
ble, and that the coroner's jury in or-
dering Mayor Harrison held to the
grand Jury had put an unjust stigma
upon the mayor, who had failed in
no particular whatever either in omis-
,slon or commission.
The hearing before Judge Tuthill
was on a writ of habeas corpus sued
out by Mayor Harrison's attorneys.
Following his release, Mayor Har-
rison made the following statement to
the Associated Press:
"The only possible feature which the
jury was able to find connecting me
with the Iroquois fire disaster was the
alleged negligence-and Incompetence
of my appointees, Fire Chief Mushani
and Building Inspector Williams. I
want to call attention to the fact that
'Chief Musham has been connected
with the Chicago fire department for
forty years, beginning at the bottom
of the ladder and winning his way to
the position of assistant chief by gal
ILnt and heroic conduct of a lifetime.
Upon the retirement of Chief Swante,
I appointed Musham chief. The ap
pointment was strictly on merit and
met with unanimous approval. When
the position of building commissioner
became vacant last summer, I Invited
the builders' club, an association of ar-
chitects, rpid various other non-parti
san professional organizations, to
nominate the best available man for
the vacancy. They named In nomina-
tion Mr. Williams, a republican, and
gave me the strongest testimonials of
his character and efficiency. I ap-
pointed him, and he entered most ear-
nestly upon his duties. Both of these
men were considered ideal appoint-


Unsheathed in House for Eliminating
14th and 15th Amendments.
A Washington special says: Con-
greaman Hardwick, of Georgia, made
his maiden speech In the house Thurs-
day afternoon and incidentally be
came Involved in a discussion with
General Grosvenor, the veteran repub-
lican leader, of Ohio. Taking advan-
tage of the latitude permitted when an
appropriation bill Is undei" consider.
tion, Mr. Hardwick addressed the
house upon the proposition to repeal
the fourteenth and fifteenth amend-
mnents to the constitution, which fig-
tired prominently as an Issue in his
own canvass for congress.
General Grosvenor Interrupted to
call Mr. Hardwick's attention to a
statement he made regarding the word
"white" In the Ohio constitution. Gen-
eral Grosvenor pointed out that the
word "white" was in the cod Titution
of his state in 1867 fixing the qualifica-
tion of a voter, having been placed
there In 1861. In 1867 a constitutional
amendment was submitted to the peo-
ple of Ohio to strike out the word
'white" from the convention. The
proposition was defeated and Genorai
Grosvenor Intimated that the demo-
crats were responsible for It.
Mr. Hardwick ready admitted tho
Charge and further called General
Grosvenor's attention to the fact that
the Ohio legislature attempted to re-
Jec the fifteenth amendment and with-
drew its assent to the fourteenth
"That was democratic politics," re-
torted General Grosvenor.
"Yes," said Mr. Hardwick, "I knew
you would say that. I think It was
very good politics."
In apologizing for interrupting Mr.
Hardwick, General Grosvenor said of
his speech: "I think it Is the best
presentation of ab badly cause that I
have ever heard."

Bodies of Mine Disaster Vic-
tims Being Recovered.


Hope that the Entombed Men Might
be Alive Was Soon. Dispelled.
Remains Were Frightfully

A Plttaborg, Pa., special says: The
Ilarwick mine Is giving up Its victims
as fast as the engineer can raise and
lower the cage In response to the sill
nals from the men who are at, work
at the bottom of the shaft. The burn-
ed 'and mangled bodlesr of men Tho
went to work on Monday morning are
being brought up to the surface, and
bob sleds, which stand in a line. are
hauled up the snow road to the school
house on the hill.
Every body so-far brought up is
bruised, cut and crushed into shape.
leernesP. and all so far have their
hands raised to the faces, Indicating
that the doomed men foresaw their
fate anti tried with their last consclus ,,
efforts &o ward It off. The fact tiat
the lege and arms are broken and d1 s-
Jointed shows that the force of the ex.
plosion must have been terrific. it is
presumed that the men were hurled
against the jagged walls of the nine
antd tnushed at the ends of headings
and chambers.
Scarcely one of the bodies had any
clothing on it, and all are mere or
loss burned, some 'to a crisp. There
was goeat difficulty in identifying them
on this account, and about the only
means to accomplish Identilflcaon will
oe by the small brass weigh checks
Learning a number, which each man
draws upon going into the mine, and
of which a record is kept. But, as
miny of the victims are devoid of
clothing, confusion will result.
Two Polish women came from Po-
iard Tuesday night to Cheswick. They
arrived late, and not being able to
reach Harwlck, where their husbands
were employed in the mine, slept all
right in the station. Both men are In
the mine, and a sad scene was enact-
ed Wednesday,when the women learn-
ed for the first time that they were
widows. Neither can speak English,
and one of the women carried an in-
fa it in her arms.
Among the bodies found was that
of a stranger. Clothes were on it, and
It was only slightly burned. Who he
was or what he was doing In the mine
no one knows: He may have caused
the fxploslon by lighting a match.
H. A. McMIllan, who led one party
of searchers, said:
"Fifteen bodies were found in butt
number 1, of the south entry. All of
them, with the exception of the stran-
ecr, were badly burned and mangled.
One's head was blown off. In the
south entry we found two men lying
face downward near each other. These
had evidently been killed by the forca
of the explosion. In another place we
found six men, all negroes, I believe.
Five were in a heap and one was pic-
red under a car. We found the driver
of that entry lying along the oadway
where he had been blown. Rooms II)
and 12, south entry, are caved to the
depth of fivo feet. There are several
men buried there, as there aro un-
doubtedly men buried under the rocks
of the mine. For this reason It will
be weeks before all the bodies are re-


Whittaker Wright Took Deadly Dose
Hidden In His HandkerohIef.
A London dispatch says: A post
mortem examination has shown that
Whittaker Wright committed suicide
by taking cyanide of potassium.
The investigation made Indicates
that Wright must have swallowed the
poison while standing before Justice
Bigham, after receiving his sentence.
It Is recalled that Wright pulled a
handkerchief from his pocket and ap-
peared to wipe his face, and Itls sur-
mised that under cover of this Be took
the fatal dose.

successful this time or not, and this
will be unpleasant news to many
who believe hbl pleas will be hard
