The Ocala Banner was founded in 1883 as a successor to the Ocala Banner-Iacon, itself the product of a merger between the East Florida Banner and the Florida Iacon. In 1890, the Ocala Banner became a daily. Over the years it bore alternate titles: the Banner, the Daily Banner, and the Ocala Daily Banner. Situated in rural Marion County, the Ocala Banner covered farming, business, and civic issues in Ocala, where the Freeze of 1895 had devastated the citrus industry and paved the way for diversified agriculture and the growth of tourism. The most important of the early editors of the Ocala Banner was Frank E. Harris, a veteran of the Confederate army, who ran the paper in the 1890s. Other editors included T.W. Harris, who had published several other newspapers in Ocala, and C.L. Bittinger, who before moving to Florida had served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 1895, the Ocala Evening Star surfaced as a rival to the Ocala Banner. Beginning in 1897, it also appeared in a weekly edition, the Ocala Weekly Star. During an address to the Ocala Rotary Club, R.N. Dosh, editor of the Evening Star in the 1920s and 1930s, recalled that the “Star first saw the light of day in the press room of the Florida Baptist Witness”, founded in 1884 as the weekly press organ of the Florida Baptist Convention, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Former competitors, the Ocala Evening Star and the Ocala Banner joined in 1943 to form the Ocala Star-Banner, which remains the daily newspaper of Marion County.

been set aside by the Appellate divis-

cover what a grievous error he has

ing to undo it will make it bad for

it is about time that its effects were

That he carries a chip on his shoul-

In the language of a friend of ours
in this city. he appears to be a little
too "savigrous."
The above are about the sum and
substance of the charges, against
Mr. Stockton personally.
It is also charged by his opponents
that he on one occasion bolted thoe
democratic nomination in his county,
and was elected to the legislature on
an independent ticket.
That is the charge against him po-

It is also charged that his record

ras to have been paid for.
These are about the sum and su!)-
tance of the charges made against
ir. Stockton.
They are not so bad, with the c-x-
eption of the last one. and those
making that charge refer to the re-
ort of the investigating committee
or its confirmation.
Mr. Stockton and his friends say
hat an impartial investigation of the
records of Jacksonville show that his
iands are clean now and have always
een. and that he has never received
* dollar from the city treasury that
ie has not earned. That he has con-
ributed large sums of money out of
Lis private funds for the city's up-
uilding and has given to it a large
part of his time. for which he never
received nor expected to receive a
dollar. "
General Gilchrist is also laboring
inder the impression that he is a
badly treated man. and his friends
share this opinion.
It is charged by his opponents that
ie is being dominated and controlled
by the liquor interests. That the !i-
|uor dealers have sent out the sum
of $360,000 Into this state as a cor-
rulption fund with which to corrupt
the voters of this state in the inter-
ests of General Gilchrist. and if
elected he will be the liquor dealers
governor. which will be an everlast-
ing scandal to the state's good name.
It is also claimed by General Gil-
christ's opponents that he is under
mortgage to the railroad companies.
and if elected will be under obliga-
tions to these corporations.
These are the charges against Gen-
eral Gilchrist. and on the strength of
the same several ministers of Jack-
sonville have formed themselves int)
an alliance and have sent one of their
ambassadors forth to preach against
the election of General Gilchrist. as
to elect him would be tantamount t.
turning the state over to the Mammon
of Unrighteousness.
These are the charges against Gen-
eral Gilchrist.
Mr. J. 0. LaFontisee. the manager
of General Gilchrist's campaign, has
taken it upon himself to run down
these rumors and he finds that the
scandal about the $360.000 sent into
Florida by the liquor dealers has i(s
foundation merely in the casual state-

in Florida, and many of his friends
share his opinion.
In taking a survey of the field and
carefully going over the ground, we
find that the harshest things said
about Mr. Stockton are the follow-

We are glad to note that England is
considering the justice of pensioning
her aged and decrepit citizens, exclud-
ing criminals, lunatics and pauper-,
who are provided for otherwise.
In the budget of Mr. Acquith. the
new premier, $1.25 per week is pro-
vided for persons who have reach-"
the age of three score and ten.
It is estimated that the maximum
number of pensioners will not exceed
500,0004). and the cost will not ex-
ceed $30,000,000 in any one year.
Married couples are to be given a
pension of $1.80 a week, to be shared

between them, and the cost of these
pensions is to be a national burden
and not to be borne by localities. The
pension scheme becomes operative
next January, and no person will be
admissable to the pension list who is
in receipt of an income more than
$2.504) a week.
While the labor party is said to be
dissatisfied with the advanced age
limit and the smallness of the pension
amount, yet it is quite well pleased
with the creation of the system and
precedent, for there is much reason
to believe that the scope of the
scheme will be increased In the course
of a few years.
The conservative opinion of Eng-
land denounces the "old age" pension
plan as socialistic, impracticable anl
ruinous, but so many things have been
thus denounced that have not so turn-
ed out that those who favor the plan ar,?
not alarmed.
"Honor thy father and thy mother"
is one of the commandments of tho
Great Jehovah. It means that th*
aged must be cared for and this is as
imperative on the part of the govern-
ment as it is on the part of the sons
and daughters.
We hope that this wise and excel-
lent provision for aged and infirm per-
sons will be taken up by our govern-
ment and remove the gaunt fear of
want from their pathway and se?
that their gray hairs do not go down
in sorrow to the grave.

In presenting his scheme to th?
English parliament. Mr. Acquith took
occasion to say that it would be at-
tacked as socialistic, but he added
that if it were socialism both the polit-
ical parties of England were respon-

stant companion. Th. ptctut,- was .1i
base caricature throughout.
We are reminded of theso things
in recently looking through some 0!
our old files.
One of these papers, printed just
twenty years ago. gave* an account of
a Methodist missionary committee in
New York discussing the advisability
of withdrawing from missionary work
among the southern whites. In com-
menting upon thee same this paper
"We do not believe there is a radi-
cal politician, even in the heat of a
close canvass, who would have ut-
tered such malevolent, false and at:o-
cious slanders as did these reveren.i
gentlemen who pretend to be teach-
ing the gospel. We are not surprise
that our local ministers, members of
the same denomination as these mis-
sionaries, as well as members of th..
Methodist Episcopal church, south.
should express astonishment at hear-
ing such remarkable doctrines coming
from the mouths of ministers, and
should hesitate to believe it possih! l
that they should say such cruel thing-s.

selves, for we scarcely believed rha"

"The whole missionary commit,-

purpose of fighting this wickedness
and eradicating it. the other wing. led

Fletcher Men Stand Solid

I have not bsted of myriches. I have none to boast of. I have told the whole
truth-that I was not bound or obligated to any corporate interest, National Bank or
railroad Co., for any of the expense of my campaign. Gov. Broward makes an effort
to urry favorand ake political capital by alluding to his poverty or lack of wealth.
Yet at. Tampa he said that he had Eighty Thousand Dollars worth of property. It is
o" V tP to bm and quite another thing to use the fact for political effect. It is one
th it a TnVe .limited means, and quite another thing to be free from personal obligations-
especiall.y to anks and National Bankers-whose interest would be affected by
currency Lilon by Congresn. It is one thing to lack means-it is another thing to
he appointing power of the Governor to reward friends, and to take care of those to
wo you are under obligations of a political or financial nature.

Gove r Broward has been nearly four years in office building up a state-wide polit-
ical macwe Th power of appointment vested in him for public interest solely has
bees od fa r his own political advantage. As a result, witness the fact that his
ppoMe, fr1. U. 1. Uuor to Inspector of Fertilizer, are openly and actively elect-
iQ agfor him im nalMt every county in the State. Among his office holding sup.
S ame fourcn'.avi inspectors, a food and drug inspector, an inspector of feed
aW ftrtliUers, tthe state printer, numbers of naval stores inspectors, the super-
I ipetor. naval stores, the chairman and a member of the State Board of Con-
im, u drettein gfyloyees and wood contractors, and an army of minor State
oWes aid employes. There is even a State detective (for whose appointment there
ono lgal authority). who is traveling over this State electioneering for Broward.
and employees are receiving salaries averaging not less than Fifteen Hun-
tMuli ra year each and their expenses. The Constitution of Florida prohibits the
OG euk from being a candidate to succeed himself. This was to prevent Just such
ahine politics. Bat the Governor Is using the same methods to get himself elected
Ualited States Senator.
After all, it seems to many people that what Gov. Broward wants is not the welfare of
the State, but office for himself; not the good of the "great-hearted" people, but politi-
cal power and influence for himself, and the ability to seize the highest offices of the
for his friends and supporters. Will the Democrats of the State of Florida stand
for these methods? Is it possible to secure a fair expression of party will, if such a
@yem of machine politics is allowed to be fastened upon the State? It is now for the
Democrat. of Florida to decide whether or not they will indorse such political machine

Last year the writer contributed h's
cash to help the temperance cause

whiskey from Marion county. Little

governor, could no more bring about
state-wide prohibition than Gilchrist
could prevent it should he try.

There have been occasi fns in other
sections of the country where minis-
ters of the gospel have combined i.)
use the office of their sacred calling
and their churches to enter the arena
of politics, notably during the fanat-
ical crusade against slavery, which 'e-
suited in a division of some of the
churches, but, so far as I am aware,
we now have the first innovation of
such methods in the fair state of
Florida, as is manifested in an "Ad-
dress to the God-Fearing People of
Florida," sent out by pastors of ce.-
tain churches of Jacksonville, in their
endeavor to use the influences of their
churches and their offices, dedicated
to the worship of God, to secure iithe
election of Mr. John N. C. Stockton
as governor of Florida. Is this be-
cause his opponent is a man of such
corrupt and immoral life as to call
forth the condemnation of Christian
people? It would seem not, as they
say "We do not wish to say one woi d
against the character of their candi-


those who elect him, and must he
grateful to them." Without saying sc
in words, tb? only logical deductioa
from the above remarkable code :,f
morals which the clerical alliance ,
enunciate is that if General Gilchri;st
against whose character they say not
a word, is elected by the influence )f
the saloon interest, in grateful recoz-
nition of such support he should pros-
titute hi shdgh office to reward them.
I do not subscribe to such ethics.
No matter by whom one is elected, if
he be an honest man. as I know Gen-
eral Gilchrist to be. he will not useo
his office improperly in the interest of
his supporters, whoever they may oe.
But let us see. in the light of :he
last primary whether it is true that
the large vote of General Gilchrist is
due principally to the support of tl'e
saloon interests. Of th. dry counti-es
Gilchrist carried IS and Stockton 17.
Was the saloon interest sufficient to
carry the counties for Gilchrist in
which there were no saloons? Stock-

We are aatihe and shocked that
OW P of the gospel and other
od Christians are permitting them-
ae to be used as political cats-
paws for Mr. Stockton and his co-
Aijtors in the shameful warfare now
beiag waged against General Gil-
ertt wboee neighbors know him to
be one of the most high-toned, honor-
able, conscientious gentlemen of Flor-

The press of the state is now filled
with editorials and paid advertise-
eats, in which the unblushing and
outrageous charge is made that, if
Gilchrist is chosen governor, he will
be cotrolled by the whiskey element
and the corporations, and we noti-e
that a number of preachers and
some Christian bodies have been be-
trayed into believing this calumny
and are exerting their influence
againEt Gilchrist and in favor of
Realizing the desperate nature 0*
Mr. Stockton's chances of winning in
the coming primary and being utterly
able to find anything else tangible
to allege against Gilchrist, the advo-
cates of the former have seized upon
this slander as a drowning man catch-
es at a straw and have induced many
good people to Lelieve that Gilchrist
is in league with the saloons and cor-
perataons, and, if elected, will be a
pBat tool in their hands.
If the editor of the Herald believed
lft charge, he, as a church member.
Vid not suppout General Gilchrist,
t he beknows it to be false, as he is
ell acquainted with General Gil-
cr and knows that no man nor
set of men can control or even influ-
ow him to act contrary to his con-
deuatious convictions, and his char-
acter as one of the most high-toned
d bomorable gentlemen of Florida.
If the really patriotic and Chris-
tka people will only for a moment
uwaider this charge, they will under-
ald its arrant injustice and prop-
wty resent the insidious attempt to
make political cat's-paws of them in
the interest of Mr. Stockton.
The calumny is based upon the al-
Ned fact that the liquor and corpor-
tmon people are supporting Generil
0chlrist. We do not know whether
this is true or not. but, granting that
It is, Mr. Stockton's adherents dare
Mot assert that these interests have
received any promises from Gener-l
OGlkhrist. The reason for their course
is found in their having the assur-
ame that Gilcbrist is a fair and just
ma d will treat all interests with
imartiality, oppressing none, dis-
tamlmating against none, but giving
iyoae a "square deal;" whereas,
Mr. Stockton is a peace disturber, a
bitte and relentless partisan, wh-,
with his chief abettors, has kept Jack-
mvflle aad Duval county in political
imminll and diasention for many

As to General Gilchrist being con-
bed by saloon and corporation ele-
mat. because they favor his candi-
4acy, we whe know him best know
tat it Is not so. Even Mr. Claude
L,'agle, who Is now doing all he can
to dirslate this slander and mislead
lood'people that he may keep the
tle printing, said in his paper a
fW maths back that "the corpora-
tdims do ot know Gilchrist, because
they know they cannot control him,"
a-l he might truthfully have said the
mm thing about the saloon people.
Mr. L'Blgle also says in his first pa'd

advertisement on this subject that
"btockton as governor cannot put -)a
Kate prohibition; that power lies

I - - m

sibly be of any special service to
But in this case it seems to be "any-
thing to beat Gilchrist." Tell and
publish any sort of a tale or slander
that may deceive good people in, j
voting against him.
Will the people permit themselves
to be thus deceived?-Punta Gorda


Senora de Costa, well known for
her eminent services in having the
great peace monument, the "Christ
of the Andes," created and erected on
the Andean boundary between Argen-
tina and Chile, has finally completed.
the organization of peace society at
Buenos Ayres, under the title. "La
Asociacion Sud Americana Paz Uni-
versal'" (South American Universal
Peace Association). Among the first
adherants of the society are a numb,-.
of very distinguished men, namely:
Mariano Antonio, archbishop of Bu-
nos Ayres. Julio A. Roca, Luis S. P,-
na. Jose E. Uriburu, all three ex-pre.s-
idents of Argentina. Benito Villan-i-
eva. president of the senate,. Jose Fig-
ueroa Alcorta, president of Argentinat
E. S. Zehallos. minister of foreign
affairs. E. B Morena. minister to Bel-
gium and Holland, Dr. Luis M. Drags.
ex-minister of foreign affairs, and( the
first Argentine delegate to the second
Hague Conference, besides a number
of senators, deputies, etc. Senora d-
Costa has also had made a fine peace
flag to serve as the banner of the so-
city and an emblem of concord and
solidarity among the South American
countries. In its border are placed
representations of the flags of all the
South American republics. On the
22nd of February, in the presence of
a distinguished gathering, at the foot
of the "Christ of the Andes" statue

on the Andean boundary, this flag was
consecrated. The bishop of Cuyo, Dr.
Marcolina Benevente. who had dedi-
cated the "Christ of the Andes" mon-
ument, presided at the ceremony and
blessed the banner, invoking the
blessing of the Most High upon the
new peace society and its founder and
the cause of peace. During the c(-r.,-
mony was placed on the granite pel-
estal of the "Christ of the Andes"
monument.-Advocate of Peace.

General Clement A. Evans of Atlan-
ta was elected commander-in-chief )f
the Confederate Veterans at their re-
union in Birmingham. Gen. Evans
is one of the most loved men in thr
army. He is a native of Georgia and
was born of North Carolina and Vir-
ginia Revolutionary parentage.. He
was elected judge of the county court
at 22 and state senator at 25. The
civil war commenced while he was
senator, and although he was exempt
from military service he joined a com-
pany in his county in January, 1861.
He was first elected major of the
Thirty-First Georgia regiment, and
then promoted to colonel. Gen. Ev-
ans succeeded Gordon when he was
promoted major general, and again
succeeded Gordon in command of the
division. His service was in the army
of northern Virginia, and he partici-
pated in all the battles fought on the
soil of Virginia, Maryland and Penn-
sylvania. In command of his division
at Appomattox he made the last fight
of the war, after the surrender, be-
cause he had not received notice of
the truce.

The ministerial association of New-
ark, N. J., has adopted a resolution
to the effect that its members will
preach and teach optimism hereafter.

The Pensacola Journal's burial of
John Beard was even more marked
than that of Sir John Moore. Not a
tear did it shed as to other favorites
it hurried.

The esteemed Tampa News must
not read the Florida Times-Union
very carefully if it thinks that it is
not taking sides in the gubernatorial
contest. It must have gotten the two
Jacksonville papers mixed.

The Chicago Dally Socialist, speak-
ing of the approaching republican na-
tional convention, says in its heal-
lines: "G. 0. P. Covered by Smoke of
a Fierce Battle-The Harmony in the
Party Ranks is so Great That Fights
Are Continuous."

Things have changed in Georgia.,i
Before the primary it was "Littlejoc-
brown," and "IUttlebrownjugbrown.'
It is now Hon. Joseph M. Brown, gov.

Bittinger Is spoken of as "thunder,"
Light as "lightning." So it is up to
the voters to have either "thunde.-'"
or "lightning." But they must make
a choice between the two. They cat-
not have both.

Governor-elect Joseph M. Brown
gives the cost of his primary cam-
paign as upwards of $25,000. In

Georgia the term is onlv for

The po), ists likewise- participate,]
in the G'orgia primaries, making them
anything else than what they purport
to be, viz: "Democratic primaries."
In Florida the populists and republi-
cans participate in them. They are
not democratic primaries by any
manner of means. Populists and re-
publicans did not use to attend demo-
cratic conventions as delegates.

So ft- as uoeaa is concerned, those
engaged in the whiskey business are
taking very little, if any, interest in
the approaching primary. Mr. Keat-
ing has gone to New York and Mr.
Carmichael is in Arkansas, and both
gentlemen will remain away until af-
ter the second primary. If there were
any truth about that $360.000 being
sent into this state the said gentle-
men would be doing about some. It
is a fake to fool the preachers, worm-
en and children.

Oh, yes, a poor man has some show
in a primary. It only costs what the
salary amounts to to make the race.
But why should not poor men serve
for the glory that is in it? Jennings
did it and those who do not like him
say he managed to quit the office
rich, and Governor Broward seems to
have money enough left to make an-
other campaign. The play of politics
is a nice game, but Barnum, Ameri-
ca's great showman, long since said

The voice of the muckraker is dying
in the land. The reign of the
"smasher" is but of few days and full
of trouble. Yet a little while, and we
shall look back upon the period of agi-
tation and clamor and wonder how we
could have been so foolish as to
hearken to the voice of the Hoke
Smiths, the Vardamans, the Tillmans
and their kind. We are gradually re-
gaining our equilibrium and it will be
many years, let us hope, before the!
firebrand, the pitchfork and the
knocker's hammer again become the
approved weapons by which the ile-
signing politician and the strife-stirr-
ing demagogue may win their way to
the high places of our country.-
