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.

excellent music, after which lloun. C. M.
Brown, candidate for governor, and who
just happened to be in Gamnesville on

beautiful and very appropriate speech.
Mr. Brown is an old Confederate Veteran
who fought under Gen. Robert E. 1,ee
four years, and who now cars es four

(-We heartily endorse the sentiments
expressed in the above, anl we feel that
wlieni the liquor dealers of 'lorida grow

oppose all saloon candidates for office.

mortal Association agree with Jxdge
Akin regarding the matter, it Is prob-
able that the matter will be brOught
to the attention of thd general assemer
bly of Georgtia during the meeting
that is to be held this Juneo, with the
request. that June 3 be made a legs*
holiday instead- of April 26.-
. Two arguments were /presented by,
Judge Akin as to why the date of Me.
morial day should be changed.. The
first reason was that there is a dearth
of flowers .on April- 26, and the second
was that June 3 is the anniversary of
the birthday of President Jefferson
Regarding this suggestion Judge
Akin: said:
"Here I leave my prepared speech
to make a suggestion to you. The
weather today Is suficelent argument
in favor of what I say. I suggest that
Memorial day be moved from April 26
to June 3, which iWf the birthday of
the president of our southern confed-
eracy, Jefferson Davis. (Cheers.)
"As I say the weather we have to-
day. is sufficient argument why this
should be done. Let the ladies, through
their. organizations, take the lead, and
the state legislatures will follow. We
will make a. national holiday of the
birthday of Jefferson Davis.
"Here in the cities where flowers
can be bought from the stores it is
bad enough,, but, you will find in the
country a dearth of flowers for use on
Memorial day. -
"But thereis another argument why.
we should change the day from April
20 to. June 3. Whatever may have
been his faults, whatever may have
been- his weaknessesI-although to. me
he had neither faults nor weaknesses
-he was the official mead of our south-.
ern government, our hopes were cen-
tered in him and we ought to honor
"When defeat had come to his gbv-
ernment, when the north wan begin-
ning to. forget, he was placed in a
dungeon, his tender limbs were
shackled and he was chained to the.
hoor by order of a dirty villain in the
shape of a man who afterwards be-
came head of our army, Nelson A.
Miles." (Loud and prolonged cheer-

It was only after Selkirk had watch-
ed from his familiar lookout, in fair
weather and foul, for rmors than four
years that he was flCalll t'ewarded by
the aight of his old ship. When Cap-
tain Dampler landed upon the tbtach.
Selkirk was already standing on the
edge of the forest, waving d white
flag. In honor of :he visit, he wore
his last shirt, which he had carefully
kept for years for this occaalon. The
captain afterward noted In his aooount ,
that Selkirk spoke In a voice whih.,
for all his pains, sounded scarcely hu-
man Ills fr-et had been ,hardened
like leather front long expvaure. For -
many weeks he had reftu sd to touch.
any liquor, nor had lho anyo appoit
for -civilized foods. Selkirk greeiteid -
hIs old shipmates. with- a delight that
ma y be Imagined, and- before leaving
Ila island. he entertalned the ship's
cre, in his "house."
The-island was vistted-lbut once by
any ship during Seolklrk's long exile. A
Spanish ship once landidd onr the ial-
- and a small company who caught a
glimpse of Selkirk. In those days tho
, Spanlsh .were the deadly nountleao of
the English, and doubtless eulkirk had
* recognized. the ahip's colors from his
lookout, and drawn his. own conclu-
stona. In the story of Cruaoe, it will
be romemnibered, Defoe makes much of
this visit of the Spanish, and has thomr
prostrate tihtntselep before Crusoe- as
the "governor of- the Island." As a
'mat(tr of f act, however, Crusoo (or
Selkirk) played a much less ignlfled
part_ than I)efoe would have us be-
l.eve,. The SpanIulh shot at and
.chased him for some dietaene without
success. A billilog which they had
brought aslhoro wan pressed Into ser-
vice; but"Sollltrk, from hil long train-
ing with the goat:-, utiran the biullt dog.
Growing tired of the chase Selkirk
finally climbed a .tree. The Spanish
bullt-a fire and camped near his hid-
ing place, but finally left without dis-
coverlg hhim../
Tle solltudo. ad many hardshlp- of
this lonely life would doubtless have
driven most men crazy. Selkirk, how.
ever, kept his wit th:u hgout it all.
and when lie final:t returned to Scot-
land, after an abkhnce .of eight year,,
was able to take ,up.hts old life whore
he had dropped It, and, despite his bar-
baroua life, was still a civilized man.-

1.*x yenaof the
sa Q. a

It I1 too bad that two cabdidttes
for the high office of State Super-
intendent &o' Public Instruction of
the State of Florida should feel
themselves called upon to carry on
such a campaign of abuse of each
other as Sheats and Holloway have
been conducting during t.ha i t.ys-
eral months. Thee two uxta who,
because of the high and I6toorable
official position that e0b o6f them
already ocem it-for no other
reason, sZh:l be nedel gentlemen,
and'pra0,tI soe well as preachers
of per t 'g tillty, have accused
each o4hL o acts too mean to be
attritbted to qoy man who has not
be ome a thorough reprobate, and
if either is as mean as the other
says he is, he should be in the pen-
itentiary, and if neither of them
has been misrepresented, both of
them are bad customers, dnd are
certainly unworthy of the position
to which they aspire.
We believe that both men have
been more or less misrepresented..
We wish we could know that many
of the charges are untrue and the
result of misunderstandings instead
of wilful mlasrpresentations, for
we would rather know that those
who have made the trouble breed-
ing statements were honest in what
they have said than to believe
them dishonest.
We are heartily sorry that so
many good mien have been brought
Into the affair and that others are
likely to be brought into it, and we
are sorrier still that a lady has been
brought into the.affair at all, and
we trust most sincerely that no
more mud will be thrown by either
candidate or the friends of ithler
candidate. We want the b.mad bt
has been thrown alt ady tW have
time to dry, audrthb o@ the can.
dIdftteUean be seen as they really
are before the primary.
The SheatS and Holloway contro-
versy that has been carried on

through our columns during the
last few months has not been pleas
iug to us, and much of it would not
have been' admitted at all but for
the fact that it was to occupy "paid
for" space.
We believe in fair play to every
one, and, while we have a right to
have a preference among candi-
dates, and white we shall exercise
that right according to our own lik-
ing, we will not, under any circumi
stance, knowingly do an injustice
to ekher Sheata or Holloway, but
will condemn any methods that we
may'know to be dishonorable if at
tempted to be used by either for the
purpose of injuring the other.
We have heard it intimated (but
we hope there is nothing of it) that
there will be some bad" charges
made and published just before the
primary-when it Isa too late for the
accused to answer them before the
election is over. If such charges
are made, by either side, when it is
too late for the accused to answer,
or reply to them, the act should be
frowned upon by every honest man.
If there chances to be any broad-
casting of hand bills around the
polls on election day with new
charges on them-agaimst either
candidate-seth publishing of such
charges at such a time, should be
denounced by every gentleman.
We hope that neither candidate
will attempt to take an undue ad-
vantage of the other, and if such an
act is attempted we hop* it Will re-
sult in the inglorious defeat of 'the
person who attempts it,

The, taz payers of this comtn ii-
sioners district, 'No, 6, are not 0o
much Interested in getting a man
for county commissioner who is
real annxiou to be elected as they
are in gttatg t mnaa who will be
