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.

Tuesday, the third day of the confer-
ence, was one full of interest and Irofit
to lhose who attcndel,, and Iduiring the
day several .proliunent workers and vis-
itors arrived. Among tie new arrivals
was Dr. David V. Gwilym, one of New
York City' pos.t distinguished Episcopal
divines and one of the iqott earnest, able
and fimpresslve Christian workers in the
The services at the. Tabernecle began at
9:30 a. m. with the usual beautiful song
service conducted by Prof. Arnold, and
then itsphritrg lectures were delivered by
Mrs. Margaret Bottome and Dr. Brown.
These lectures, as were former ones Iby
these t*o "distinguished persons, were
perfect 'grand and were listened to
with rapt attention.
At I:30 p I., after the usual song a-r-
vice, Dr. ,W. Blackstone of Chicago,
who had so pleased and enlightened the
great audience before, delivered a won-
derfully pleasing lecture on "The Per.
secllton of the Jews." It was a most
masterly etfbrt and was highly appre-
ciated by the Jews who were present
as well as the Gentiles.
At the evening service, beginning at
7:30, a hall hour was devoted to song,
and then came one of the most eloqrurint
and spiritual lectures ever listeietl to il
Gainesville. The speaker was Mrs. M ir-
garet Bottome, her subject being 'lie
Will Guide You." This lecture was
a magnificent treat; even Dr. Strotuso
declared Ltht hp was greatly lifted up
@nd Ulaesed by it.
Dr. Gwilym then made a few very
beautiful and appropriate remarks.
The attendance at Wednesday's servi-
ces was good, but the lectures were hbt-
ter. Dr. Brown, of Virginia. delivered
an able lecture on the book of I.eviticus.
The lecture was a most powerful one-
highly edusqtiqqral, and yet not free from
thoughtss spirllual. Every one who heard
him, whether Jew or Greek, must have
been enlightened, and thereby beii
efited. This lecture was followed by a
pleasing one by Mrs. Bottom, her sub
ject being "An Inward Florida."
At 2:3Q p. m. Ir. lackstone agait lec-
tlred, his sunject this time being "The
Restoration of Israel" and, like all of his
lectures, it was able and pleasing.
At the evening service Dr. Gwilyml of
New York again delighted an iutmense
audience. ele showed himself an oratory
R sllQlarl a man filled with the spirit of
the Diyine Master. "Blessed are the
poor la spirit, for their's is the king-
dom of Heaven," was the Doctor's
text," and he handled the subject In a
itnasterly manner,
The feast of good things Thursday was
remarkable. Dr B. I. D. Pepper
brought the message at the first service.
lHis addrde was food and drink for the
spi: 'tually hungry and thirsty.
Dr. B:own thee delivered another one
of his powerful lectures on the book of
Leviticu, 'hti taken all together the
morning service were pronounced most
exce'let*rntg e.t n qttedeC4.
In tlU l h c -,t at 23q o'clock, Mrs.

their search was supposed to be. The
mnin was found and placed under arrest,
but after being made a prisoner he dashed
for liberty and could not be stopped or
overtaken Sheriff Fennell shot him
with small shot, but this only made hinm
rJn faster. Then larger shot were sent
after him, one or more of which stuck
hlin, but he continued to run until he put
hliiiself up-staira in Dr. DePassa house.
Tl'i.e Doctor had him come down and the
officers took him and the Sheriff of Vo-
lnhia took hlpi to that county.

McBeath's Opinion of Sheats a
Few Years Ago.


Trial Sermon Printed in His Of-
ficial Organ-Let the Par-
soi. Possess His Soul.
Thie following paragraphs, in reference
to State Siiperintenlent Sheats, are taken
from the Florida School Exponent of
May. I.18S:
"The Stale Superinutenet of Public
Instruction of I:lorida has turned preach-
er. I;et nio IIIman then be surprised should
Satin himself hereafter apply for 'holy
orders.' The trial sermon of the new
parson is now before the public. He
printed it'himself in the 'Official Depart-
ment' of his 'official Organ.' "
"Prom the throne of his official Vati-
can, he has thundered his 'ateathema,
maranatha' against poor little me, and
lo! I am 'excommunicado' and consigned
to eternal perdition I Let the good par-
son possess his soul in patience; how-
ever much as I would like to bear him
company, I must respectfully decline to
be handed over body and soul to the
devil; I an not headed in that direction."
"In the second place, I heartily
dislike personal controversies; es-
pecially when conducted in pub-
lic I am fond of debate, and enjoy
a real good 'scrap' occasionally-when I
have a gentleman for an antagonist. But
I detest quarreling, and have an instinct.
ive aversion to bandying billingagte
with blackguards. In fact. I won't do it
In such contest, no matter if he does get
the better, a gentleman always comes out
the worse. There is no such thing as
victory in a battle wth a skunk; except,
possibly, for the skunk."
"I do wish the State Super'ntendent
had had the grace to pitch his attack
upon a higher plane, somewhat nearer
the level where I hold myself. 'Do have
to defend myself is humiliating enough;
but to have to get down, down, down
into the mud and the slime where my as-
sailent has taken his sBand against me, is
just a little too much. I wish he had
taken higher ground, Perhaps that,
however, were asking too much' of him.
If so, I beg ,pardonu At any rate, if he
couldn't attack me like a gentleman, he
should have let me alone like one. 1
could make up my mind to 'stoop to con-
quer;' but to wallow in a mud puddle
simply for the small gratification of cud-
Jeling an obstreperous pig that has had
the effrontry to wrinkle its snout at me-
ugh? the anticipation is but modestly
"1'he people of the State knbw me
pretty well. That's where I am fortunate.
They also know theState Superintendent.
That's where I'm more fortunate still."
"With the curtain up, and the dread
drama of war fully on they would hardly
care to turn away from the sublime and
mighty spectacle to watah one lead out
on the stage and wallop a vicious donkey
that had flung its heels in one's face,
and made an exhibition of himself con.
trary to the statutes in itch cases made
and provided, and against the peace and
dignity of the Commonwealthb"
"Now while a 4eacefl citizen journey-
ing inoffensively along the 'low seques-
tered vale of life' may not feel called upon
to notice every envious dog that lifts its
voice--or its leg-against him on the
way, an official attack, by an official, in
the 'official department' o his official or-
gan,' is a more serious matter; and, in
good sooth, not to be seemed at."
"A gentleman may ward off the blows
of a boor that asaaulb him with a dead
cat; he cannot, however, take
up the self-same lnstrumeM4o punish the
offender. The State Superintendent
comes at me with a pot of bilge-water.
There is nothing left for me to do but to
rise my umnbrells, keep to the windward
ot him, and in ase ofaccident, make for
the nearest bath home with a much dis-
patch a possible."
"I was furiously angry, of coarse,
when I first read the State Iuperlatea-'
dent's attack, o unjust in its statement
and iulnationa, pa bitter sad venemous
in its animus, so rulanly insulting in
some of its references."
"But the, good friend, tare's one
consolation about t; those who know.
meknow that ltis,.s true; and those
who know the Stat BSp.msiteudt will
not believe to bei *s without farther
evideanse t his we.d be 'L"

Clerk Clrult CaOrt.
To the Democrats of Aachu County:
As the State Executive Oolmittee
have selected the toth of May fr holding
our Primary Election, I here byLaSo ce
myself as a canditlate for the peatlu of
Clerk of the Circuit Court o7 Aaiehqa
county, and I solicit not only tbe yote,
but the support of my friends to secnnU
my election. If elected, I promue to
perform the duties of the office faithfully
and fully. I make this promise knowing
thoroughly wat those duties are. They
have already been learned by experience,
and I trust that all Democratic voters
may consider my appeal in making their

the evirdences of imy own eaenses; trusted
hin till lie holilly and ineultingly threw
off the inassk li hnad worn, as he confesses,
all these ears, ntil stood revealed be..
fore nme, a enemy full of hate, suspicion
aind nmalice "
"The pattern by which his I nature was
ct out was about fifteen sizes too little
for a coninlon sized man; or else he's
'swunk up' amazingly since the cutting."
'I passed his insinualions by, pocketed
my pride and affected not to perceive lias
taunts and jeer,, till at last, after his
second noniiiation, he grew so defiantly
and coarsely insulting to me in his let
ters to me that I could int afford to
iganire it; and I frankly wrote hina so.
This wa'- in August, 1896, Since that
tine there has been on my part no ptre
tense, even, of personal friendship for
him "
"He has a wonderful convenient for-
getter, has the State Superintendent.'
"Is it possible that even with bis extra-
ordinary remarkably good forgetter, the
State Superintendent, in the disburse-
ment of public moneys entrusted to b'ni
for specific purposes, sometimes forgets
the interests of the public, and uses it
for tle promotion of private interests and
ends? The query is pertinent; and I did
not raise it, either."
"I would begin to believe his forgetter
was out of order were It not that he here
forgets to state that when lie offered me
the position of secretary he proposed to
make it worth $,aoo a year, agreeing to
give me the $goo appropriated by the
state, and also in addition to that at least
300oo worth of 'summer school work.
Surely it was not criminally mercenary
in me to let him fulfill his contract Per-
haps though the State Superintendent
has constitutional aversions to fulfilling
his contracts. To have been perfectly
fair in this matter of salary drawing,
however, the State Superintendent should
have stated that fqr these saute two
months while the summer schools were
running he drew his salary as State Su-
perintendent of Public Instruction also
in addition to the $250 he allowed hin.-
self out of the $1,400 contributed by the
Peabody trustees to the sumner school
fund that year Neither does thii appear
in his report for that year; but it is a fact
all the same."
S"He says that I sought and obtained
lucrative positions at his disposal on pre-
tense of using my influence n his behalf,
and that after getting the 'goods' safe in
my posseston, I 'renigged' and refused
mept; that is, that I received from him
certain public moneys a part consid-
eration fo- which was to be the render-
ing of certain personal services to him.
Truly the man must hate me with a 'holy
hatred,' if to prove me a villain be is thus
willing to confess himself a criminal"
"If it will enable him to leep any better
o' nights, and give him time to look into
and provide for the urgent educational
needs of the state asbe ought tobe doing,
but isn't or can't; I am perfectly willing
here and now publicly add sincerely to
proclaim to all whom it may concern that
I am not now, never have been, and
never will be a candidate for nomination
to the office of State Superihtendent of
During my first eighteen months' ser-
vice as his secretary, 'mapy a time and
oft' did he take occasion to assure me
that he intended to retire from the ofAce
at the expiration of his scored term, aad
that he both desired and expected me to
be hisa successor, and that partly with this
end in view h had selected me as hb
"It Is a fact however that he absurdly
imagines every man who acquires any
educational prominence or following in
the state is 'dead set' after thee won-
derful 'shoes' of his about which he
seems so much concerned, yet weMn ith
such evident extreme discomfort a- to
suggest a 'misfit' somewhere."
**The State agerlatendeat bhas given
notice that whenever at his own good
pleasure he elects to vacate the officee, no
aspirant need apply; he will himself In-
vite and seat them when hae chose As
he would never choose me, that Islae a me
out on another count. So I guss I ane
really 'not in it.' "

Brought to the-Fore. by High


Findings in Case of South Dakota
SAgainst State of North Carolina
May Be of Par-Reachlng

Most of the talk la Raleigh, N. C.,
Just now is abogt the deafslon of the
United Stat~s supreme court that
North Carolina must pay South Dako-
ta principal and interest upon ten
bonds each of $1,000.
These bonds were issued, by the
state of North Caro'llna In aid of the
Western North Carolina railway in
1857 and were made a lien upon the
North Carolina railway. -All of them
except $242.000 were exchanged fpr
uew bonds some twenty years ago at
the rate of 25 cents on the dollar,
under the act to compromise and sot-
tie the state debt.
The only persons who still held the
bonds were the firm of Shaefer Bros.,
of New York, and they made several
propositions for a compromise, want-
ing more than te legal figures. It is
sa-J that. these bonds did not sell
for more than 80 to 40 cents on the
dollar. Shaefer never made any prop-
os'tions as to the price he would take
for theonds. Three years ago thero
was a bill before the legislature for
some kind of a compromise, but it
never passed.
It Is understood In Raleigh that the
deal by which South Dakota brought
this suit was engineered by ex-Qover-
nor Russell and ex-United States Sen-
ator Marion Butler, Bhaefer giving
South Dakota ten bonds and that state
beginning suit without having asked
North Carolina to pay for the bonds.
The first Intimation 'the state had
was the, suit.
There Is plenty of feeling about
this matter, tile being against Russell
rnd Butler. Governor Aycdck says
the interest of the private stockholders
In the North Carolina railway will. be
fully and carefully guaranteed. The
bonds of this road bear 6 per cent In-
terest and are worth 170.

Other States May be Affected.
The Atlanta Constitution's FWashing-
.on correspondent wires the followln3
to his paper: Many southern adnators
and representatives filed requisitions
Monday with the clerk of the supreme
court for printed copies of the full de-
cls'on of that court In the case of
oitoth Dakota against North Carolina,
announcedd Monday, which may have
a far-reaching effect upon the obliga-
tions of different southern elates made
by reconstruction governments and
since repudiated.
VlsionR are entertained ot the possl-
lilllty of the supreme court granting
Jiuitgnients against Georgia and all the
oilier soruihrn states agalrst which
thIseo dishonored obligations, through
thlir passing into the hands of states
or foreign governments which may ac-
quire them either as gifts or by pur-
chase, and that the total liability thus

Important feature seems to be the
finding that one state can sue another
for recovery of a debt represented by
the bonds or other obligations of the
debtor state W'hlch the creditor state
owns. Justice Brewer states the

William Collins Whitney, former
secretary of the navy, died a few min-
utes after 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon
at his home, S71 Fifth avenue. New
York. He.died while under the Influ-
ence of ether administered preparatory
to a second operation for appendicitin.
By his bedside .were his son, Harry
Payne Whitney, and his daughter, Dor-
othy Whitney, a* well as Dr, William
T. Bull, chief.-surgeon in attendance.
Mr. Whitney was in his sixty-fourth
year. He was taken IIl Friday night
at the performance of "Rigoletto" at
the Metropolitan Opera House, and
had to leave before the opera ended.
Dr. Walter B. James, the Whitney
family physician, was summoned and
tound that the condition of the pa-
tient was such that, after consultation
an operation was decided upon and
was performed by Dr. Bull. The pt-
tient rallied so well that it was fully
believed he would recover.
Mr. Whitney's condition was very
grave, however, on Sunday and Mon-
day, and at a consultation held Tues-
day afternoon, the conclusion was
reached that the only hope for the pa.
tient lay in a second operation.
Mt. Whitney was placed under the
Influence of ether, but whether the op-
eration was proceeded with or not as

had breathed his last. Oxygen was
used and all the skill of the physiclaus

talent, but to no avail.
It was 5 o'clock before the simple
fact of his death was made public.
Soon after the death visitors began
to call at the house. Among them
were Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt and cx-
Secretary of War Ellhu Root.
Mr. and Mrs. Payne Whitney were
In Thomasville when Mr. Whitney's
condition became critical, but they left
for New York Immediately on a special
train. A cablegram was sent Saturday
to Mrs. Almerick Paget, Mr. Whitney'p
daughter In London.

OUTB REAI '15 ,AWA! q l 'Ei

Ruialans and J*s atre Mlving Rapidly
Toward Criplland AetlOn le
Daily Speoltd. .

Advlces. ronm St. Peterabut state
that in spite of the expressed hope se
the Rusalan authorities that the prq-
ent crisis will-be passed and that a
pacific solution of the Rusao-Japanese
negotiations will be reached, It is no
longer concealed that Ruasia ls prio-
tlcally prepared for eventualities. Mon-
day the mobilization of the Manchu-

rlan reserves was announced.
It has been well known for months
that Russia has been steadily strength-
ening her army and navy In the Far,
East to meet the preparation which
Japan was openly making. The avall
able warships were dispatched to the
Far East and the last division whleb
left the Mediterranean a month ago Is
now nearing its destination quietly,
but surely. It was necessary that
Russia's preparations should keep pace
with those of her diplomatic adversary.
The feverish activity of Japan dur-
Ing the lat few weeks naturally In-
creased the distrust of her ultimate
Intentions, and the Russian authorltlea
have been pushing their precautionary
measures with more vigor. It Is under-
stood that six or seven military trains
dally have been going east over the Sl-
berlan road, and the charters of some
ships' cargoes for the Pacific have
been canceled because the water
route was considered too slow.
The authorities now feel that the
situation Is secure should Japan reject
huasla's proposition.
The Associated Press Is assured that
the draft of Russia's reply will be pa
ciflc and should 'lead" to a settle-
ment. The Associated Press Inform-
ant reiterated what he said u few days
"We have conceded much already
and we are ready to concede more, but
some things we cannot grant. From
our standpoint the Manchurlan ques-
rion was settled by Russia's circular
note to the powers recognizing all the
Chinese treaties. Why should Japan
demand more than the other powers?"
The Russian papers agree that the
treaty guarantees covering Manchuria
and permission for Japan to- fortify
southern Korea, making a closed sea
of the sea of Japan, are Impossible.
Japanese Not Idle.
The correspondent of The London
Dally Mall at Che Foo cables that he
has learned that Ihe Japanese naval re,
serves were mobilized last weak and
that the first army reserve was partly
moolllzed with great secrecy, the
troops arriving at their destinations
disguised as coolies.
Over 100 Iransports have been re.
qulsltionod, the correspondent con.
tinues, and 28 transports and 38 war-
ships are lying at Saho; 25 miles north
by west of Nagasaki.


Georgia Agricultural Commissioner
Fears Overplus of Cotton Planting.
Commissioner of Agr:culture O. B.
Stevens, of Georgia, Is of the opinion
that the price of cotton next fall
will continue high. He thinks, how-
ever, that the farmers should not allow
themselves to go In too heavy for cot-
ton, and advises that they ialse their
supplies at home.
In speaking of the situation Mr.
Stevens said:
"There Is every reason for believing
that the price of cotton will be high
next year, but while this is true, the
farmers of Georgia should no go In too
heavy for cotton and neglect their corn
and gra'n crops.
"The farmers of Georgia are in bet-
ter condition now than at any time
since the war, and I believe they will
continue to be prosperous. Many ol
them have nloney to loan and meat to
sell, and I would like to see this state
of affairs continue. If they have to
buy corn, however, I don't think they
can make money, even it cotton was
bringing twenty cents."
Mr. Stevens has just returned from
a trip through the southern section of
the state and he finds that a majority
of the people are well fixed, and that
they are satislled with last year's
