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.

ITOiR STAR.-The miin'i whi sits i lly

as s t go Untl when he i.i1% it in Ins

St society. Upon this consideration
sno other, we take tip our penl in
ek to explain a few points upon which
hiij people of the county are in the
rk, In so doing we shall make use of
names and wish to impersonate no
e. But there are those who have mis
iated facts to the people in order to
or personal political interests, and if
4 then feel called upon to consider
matter in a personal light, we shall
t remember the proverb of the hit dog.
hbe idea is held by many of the best
opl of the county that the adminis-
on, and mainly Mr. Holloway, is
naible for the indebtedness of the
nty-ad idea at once false and mis-
ing, aad as we I ave said before,
e which Mr. Holloway's enemies have
ted no pains to make widespread.
e fact is that it is the people them-
vys who are to blame for clamoring for
ager terms when the school fund did
t warrant the extension. hen those
in whom the burden of the blame for
lowing the debt to be contracted should
t, are taking advantage of .lr. Hollo
ay's absence to shift the responsibility
pon him when, as every well inufonned
rsou knows, he nor no other county
perintendent in the State has a viie
r any voice whatsoever in the pr c-eil-
a of the Board, except a itere advisory
rivilege. His duty is to act as secretary
or the Board. He has not even the veto
ower vrsted in all executive officers.
his being the case, it is easy it) place

But we would not be understood to

use and owed to creditors who only

united States government. But just
Upon the eve of the campaign Mr. Hiol-
loway's enemies seized upon these facts
concerning the debt, combined with it
the sub-district debt, thus increasing it to
more than double its proper size, and
raised a great hue and cry about the
county's indebtedness. This, connected
with the very radical action, which the
Bond-took about this time of cutting the
school term to four months, has caused
widespread dissatisfaction amounting at-
tattt to a panic. Thus the aim and

@;e eteplies to Cha -ges Made Against
ttim by Enemies
CGainesville, Fla., May 5, 1904. ,
To the Public: I regret the necessity
of hlis letter I find that parties work-'
ing against me have charged that 1 favrr
a short school teran, that the expenses of
the present school teru are greater than
they were last year, etc. No man is more
in favor of a long sch aol term than I, nor
will .do more to give it. The Board has
cut down expenses andu ill institute fur-
ther reforms that will enable then to
give at least five months next %ear. Last
September the loardl made a cut of $3400
on negro salaries. Al.ichua county has
paid per capital for the colored c.aldren
$3.62, while Jefferson county paid only
$i 31. I have a pledge of a majority of
the Board to bring down Alachua
county's per cap ta equal to that of Jef
ferson Thi"li will iave h3,000oo 1ino.
In l 9o-3., ccoruing to the financialH
report, ti, Schooul l'Honarl h1tl on July. ni-t
a cash balance of ot,6o3.78 They hor-
rowed 615.350. anld received from other
sources 046,.67 69 making the total re
ceipts $63,021.47. They expended the
total amount during the year except
2o04 j5 rhis report was published in
the Sun. They only gave five months
term to the comnison schools. This year
the Board has borrowed only S1,5oo,
which was done before I was connected
with it This amotmt has been paid
I'he receipts of this year will not be fully
known until June 30. There will be a
difference in the expenses of tile two
years, and in favor of the present of .at
Imast $20,ono. In 1902-3, $5,967.58 was
expended on school buildings, and this
year about $3,500. Union Academy was
run last year at a cost of 2.,4o0, while it
will only cost this year 8s,2oo to $1;300.
When tie present scholastic year be-
gan there were contracts for school build-
ings. There are none now. Any think-
iing man can see that the chances for a
longer school teri are much better
This year the Board added 3 per cent.
to the school warrants, and arranged to
have them carried six months. The
teachers got the amount contracted for
without discounting them. In another
count%, 4 per cent was added to warrants
and teachers were required to give their
note for the amount of the warrant, and
attach the same to the warrant. When
kiltle thi y could get eighty per cent of
t'ir face from the bank, and next June
the lialanice. I believe it was a wise act
a11 tlhe part of the lHoard to prevent t *e
dl.scounlt of wIrrants I fav(r the pny-
uila o(f the .it-cinl t district debt by t11.
,lt'istci for which it wa- manIle. When II
ca :ri ion thie Board I founai l ll warrants
i. r tie -peciRl district debt hearing tihe
signiat ie of the Superintetdent saod
Chairman of the lIoard on!y. The names
of the Trustees of the district should have
been on them instead. In tle winter the
Board offered a deed to the school prop-
erty to the Trustees Gainesvalle lhass c-
cepted the offer and arrdangedl for her
debt. This reduces tie special district
debt to $13,ooo.
The schools that have been consolidat-
edl have been costly, and In many in-
stances unsatisfactory. I am certainly
opposed to thle consolidation of the negro
schools. It would bankrupt the county.
Retrenchment and economy will insure
longer school terms, and better credit.

Davis Vs. iGodwill.
We are reliably informed that R. .:
Davis, of this city, who is a candidate for
the Legislature, proceeded to tell the
good people of LaCrosse what he thought
of the Gainesville Star and its editor at
the political speaking there last Wednes-
We feel sure that "Bob'a" opposition
to the Star and its editor will only
strengthen us in the estimation of all
good people who know "J'ob," and as
one who is interested In the welfare of.
the people of Alachua county, and has
done what be could to make the county
better by his living in it, we appeal to
the Democratic voters of Alachua to vote
against R. E. Davis next Tuesday.

Attention Democrats.
the editor of the Star desires to call
special attention to several political arti-
cle* in today's paper as follows: .
Hudson Burr's Open Letter (in oar sub-
plement), the photographic reproduction
of Sheals' letter to DeBose, "Prof. Hol-
lowsy Is Defended," "Attention Demo-
cratlaS!" "Letter Prom Dr. Kelley," and
Charges Clark has to face."
Ia order to make room for the above
named articles we have mean eompeltid
to leave out much other interestlag mart-
ter, and we apologies to our radu fr
s doing.

ter Into which my opponent, Mr. Hollo-
way, has interpolated the words "in the
white school auditorium," thirty-odd
thousand copies of which Isiterpolated
letter he has distributed over the State.
To forestall further forgery on his part
ou the eve of the election, I have had the
original letter-press copy of the letter re,
produced here by the Times-Union Photo.

Then read the following, which Hollo-
way lhas circulated all over the State as a
true copy of my letter to DeRose:
(As published by Holloway.)

W. Dellose. Gainesville, Pla.: Dear Sir:
- Yours of the sat inst to hand, and I
have written Prot. Booker T.Waahington
asking him to deliver an address in the

white school auditorium ou the occasion
ot the meeting of the County Superinten-
dents aud the general education board. I
trust that your institution will be success-
ful and profitable. Yours truly.
D"I)ttated to M. V." W. N. SBIATa.
Note.-(i) That the words, "in the
white school auditorium" do not occur in
the original copy; (a) that the words "oc-
casion" and."successful" are both miss-
pelled in the ognlual letter; and (3) that
in the original letter it isa "Booker Wash-
Ington," and not "Booker T. Washing-
ton," as at is in the forged copy circulated
by Holloway. On this forged letter hlie
he has based the charge on which he has
made his campaign; namely, that I in
vited a negro to address white people in
a white school building. That the letter
received by DeBose, and which is now
presumably in Holloway's possession,
exactly corresponds to the above photo-
graph of the letter-press copy of It, when
it was received by DeBose, January, 1893,
and when it was turned over to Holloway
last November by Col. C. C. Thomas, I

refer you to the following prominent cit-
lzens of Gainesville who read or heard it
read time and again, the few days follow-
ing its reception: Maj. John W. Tench;
Hon. W. R. Thomas, mayor of Gaines-
ville; Col. C. C. Thomas, Dr J. I .
Kelley, Dr. J. F. McKinstry, Jr., Col
W. S. Broome, Col. J. It. Dell, I,. W.
Jackson, Sheriff L. W. Fennell and many
others. When the forged letter appeared
in the Gainesville Sun, December 35,
1893, I wired a gentleman to inform me
who was responsible for It. He wired
me that )LcCreary, editor of the Sun,
said Holloway furnished the copy, anid
to his (McCreary's) question as to wheth-
er it was a true copy, he (Holloway) de-
clared in the presence of a witness that it
was a true and exact copy.

What it Would Mean to Florida. -

Now, aside from Mr. Tallaferro's
personal pledge to the Legislature,
which he has failed to carry into ef-
fect, the above memorial was a com-
mand to him to take some action,
which would have at least given the
question public agitation, and agitation
is what Is needed to arouse the whole
country to the Importance of making
the Interestate Commerce Commission
really useful
As an interesting co mpartaon of the
conduct of Senator Tatlaferro in re-
gard to. the commands of the Flor.ida
Legislature, I desire to point to the
-fact that the LegIslature of 1903 me-
morlalized. congress for the Ipea0h-'
ment of one, CharTee Swayne, federal
Judge for the Northern Distilot of
Floridal, and demanidea of- the Flori
da MDelegation in Congreso. that they.
take such, steps as to secure hiM Im-
We- Pnd that within a month of-the
convening of the present. Congress that
the brilliant -William ., Lamar:i Rep-
resentative in Congrees front the Third
Florlda District," proceeded to obey
this memoilaY and, the commands of
the Floride. Legislature, and how, well-
he has succeeded In this direction is
now well known to -the people of Flor-
Ida. -
Where the Real Trouble Liea.
The great masas of people don't utn-
deratand the .'qteaston; -they realize
that something is .wrong, but don't
know what It I*; they doai't know
wierr to" apply a resuddy, they comn-
plain. that the railroads are not ..fair-
in their treatment. and that rates are
too bigh, bitt don't know the real
canse--which is that the railroads are
left almost. entirely to themselves to
make the bulk bt thf UIes In effect
In0 the unitedd States toasys
Some will charge that the. writer ac

they hon)d, o long as I- have so ageat-
questlon to agltate; and I snatl t fee
happy when, the -4day comes that. will-
give the -Inerstate Oommerce Com-
miss-ion the needed -.owers.' to fully
Regulate Interstate Commerce, for I
will then haye the satisfastiln of see-
ing the people of this great State, as
well as of the whole'country, reap the
benefit of that which, in m'y feeble
way, I helped to agitate.
Atation .'-Bringa bout Reformation.
Agitation haes brought, about- all
great reforms.., it Is as old as time.
Agitation led to the Revolution which
ended in American Independencee -'
SWhat would become of religion If
it was not.for agitation? It is thet
agitation of the religion of Jesus
Chrlst that brings men to see the er-
ror of their way. Paul was an agi.
tator. Thomas Jefferson was an agi-
tator. Patrick Henry wae an aglta6
tor. And so was Andrew Jaoknon.
We need agittliop and agllatori tq

The letters of Miss Merkley, whose pic-I

ure is printed above, and Miss Claussen,

rove beyond question that thousands of

ases of inflammation of the ovaries and

omb are annually cured by the use of

ydia E. Pinkiam's Vegetable Compound.

alnsi through the p.lvio organs, cramps and extreine irritation com-
lied me to s'-ek medical advice. The doctor said that I had ovarian
trouble and uleraution, and advised an operation. I strongly objected to
this and decided to try Lydl. !B. Pinklhatia's Vegetable Compoutnd.
I soon found that my judgment was correct. and that all the good
things said about this medicine were true, and day by day I felt less
pain and Increased appetite. Tho ulocration soon healed, and the other
complications disappeared and in eleven weeks I was oncis more strong
and vigorous and Iperfectly well.
