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.

Mr. E. E. Voyle *Tells Why Ualnea-
ville Should Have One.
Fn11TOilt STARW The tinotlter of a Hoard
of Trade has been agitated. but nothing
definite has been donu:.
CGninesville is. without any question,
the iest inland town in the State, and is
situated inv the heart of Alachua county
Aseally as the year i8oo this was well
known as the beat part of East
Flo.ids, and one Fernando de la Maza
Arredondo, a inerchant Prince of Ha-
vann, Cuba, arranged to locate a colony
near Gainesville, and in 181o Royal Let-
Lprs Patent were issued from Hlis Majesty
Ferdinand, King uof Spain, to Arredondo,
to a body of s8o,aoo acres, and known
ai the Aeredondo Grant, and near the
middle of which Gainesville now standrl
Airedondo well knew that this was the
choicest land in East Florida. as it conm-
priaed immense bodies of very fine atil
rich hanmmiock land, prairie land and
pine; in fact, comp.-ised all the good
qualities and such land that would make
la.rje crops, as the few acres under culti.
nation by Indiana showed.
Look at a late map of Alachua county,
and you w.11 see that it is i iterlaced with
railroads, more so than any other county
lit Flor'da, and why is this Because of
the qtant'tles of material that i supplied
'from the land; such as phosphate, lumn-
ber, naval stores, rock, cotto., and the'
lar,,e truck farms that meet the eye of
evewy one passing o0. the trains.
In Gainesville we have the largest Sea
Island cotton dealers in the world, larke
phosphate Intemests, mineral oil works,
ferilixter factoiea, playing mills, coffin
factory, wholesale hardware stores, and
many oiher local industries too numerous
to mention. We also have the best ed-
uca'.onal facilities in the State, and point
with pride to our East Plorida Seminary;
which has tu'-ned out more thorough and
successful men than any other Institu-
t:on in Florida. We have here aa fine a
Hligh School BuIlding and Audito.-luin as
can be found anywhere; also the Florida
Llible Confereace Bu'.ldng, which will
seat thousands.
And above all is the health of Gaines-
ville, which sl supplied by a spring of
pure water.
To protect our industries and foster
iun.'graC'on is why we need a Eoard of
Trade, and by such means show to ihe
world that Ga'nesville Is the ideal place
in which to live.
I t.ust that our citizens will not let this
matter die, but organf.e and help build
up our city. E. B. VovLd..

As some doubt was expressed in cer-

would consent to" be bound In the
fashion proposed, it can be related that
such taformation an the state depart-
meat has on the subject Is to the ef-
fect that Japan would welcome an in.
international agreement neutraliring
China. An intimation has been thrown
out that one reason for this apparent
sacrifice by Japan of. the prospective
fruits of victory, If atB succeeds iq
her campaign, la a fear that most of
the great neutral powers may grow
covetous of more Chinese soll and
saeie the opportunity when the bellisg-
erents are exhausted to extend their
Chlneaoe holdings.
* having in mind her own bitter expe*
rience ,as the outcome of the Chino-
Japanese war, It la said that Japan
would rather forego the appropriation
by herself of Chinese territory than
have the same appropriated by -other
powers, which had not been put to
any expense or suffering to gain it.
One of .the inoldents of diplomatic
day witnessed with great Interest by
a number of persons In The neighbor-
hood of the diplomatic room of the

the Russian ambassador and the Jap-
anese minister. Count Gasslol was
chatting with the Austrian charge; Mr
Takahira was alone. The Russian
who Is dea not the diplomatls corps,
bowed with marked politeness and for-
mality when he received the minister,
not once, but twice, and the Japan-
ese returned the bow In like aLa:nner.
Without speaking they parted.


His Condition las Consildered Serious,
If Not Absolutely Preearlous. -
A Washingtpn special says: Sena-
tor Hanna's condition is very serious,
it not precarious. His physiclnis real-
Ise this and are watching the case
with the greatest concern. The sena-
tor was considerably weaker Thurs-
day, and as a result his pulse bad run
up at 6 o'clock p. m. to 104 a minute.
The Increased weakness is the 1ire:t
result of the fever, as the official bul-
letin show there were no complIca-
lons. The physilcans hope that the
fever has reached fts worst stage, but
whether or not it has they declare
they are unable to say. They are sim-
ply waiting for developments and real-
Ise the patient has lost ground. Ex-.
traordinary precautions are being ta.
ken to seoure quiet In and around the
hotel, so that the senator may get all
the natural sleep possible. Motormen
on the street cars almost a block
away have been requested not to ring
their gongs, as the:r sudden clanging
seemed to Irritate the senator. After
the evening visit of the rphysatclans
Senator Hanna slept -for about an hour
and a half, which considerably refresh-
ed him. Dr. Carter remains at the ho-
tel all the time, so as to be on hand in
casae there is a call for him.
