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.

Mr. W\. (;. Brori. n and Mr. J. P.
Phillips, relpresinting the Tampa Mid-
Winter Fair. andl Mr. Allan Rodgers
and Mr. J. P. Clarkson. representing
thl' .Jacksonville Exposition. were be-
fore the board of c rinty commission-
ors Tuesday. asking for more or less
reco;gition for their respective fairs.
A!l of the genticmen made most ex!
cellent appeals and presented in the
strongest and most forceful light the
good that would accrue from the
same. But the commissioners said
that while they were satisfied with the
truth of what they said that the state
of the county's exchequer prevented
them from giving them any recognl-
tion that carried with it an appropri-
ation. That they most unwillingly
turned down the appeal made to them
to assist the Marion County Fair, and
having declined in that instance It
would he impossible to do for others
what they refused to do for their
home institution.

Mrs. Beatrice Marean and her
daughter, Mrs. Susie Owens, are now
at Eureka, California. Since leaving
Pensacola they have spent a short
time in Arizona and then went to Ban
Quentin, Cal., twenty-five miles from
Oakland. The authoress writes that
it is the most charmingly picturesque
place that she has ever seen. Of BP-
reka, which is four hundred miles
north of San Francisco, she says it is
is surrounded by Humboldt bay, the
Pacific ocean and the Sierra Madra
mountains. The mountains are Ia
plain view from her window, and Mrs.
Marean says she never tires of look-
ing at their snow-capped grandeur, all
the while listening to the roar of the
ocean and the ceaseless boom of the
breakers. She and her daughter will
remain at Eureka all winter with Mrs.
Marean's brother, and in the spring
will visit Shasta county, two hundred
miles further north, and will spend
the summer with another of Mrs. Ma-
rean's brothers. While very much in
love with California. Mrs. Marean
says: "Please do not imagine that I
have lost in any degree my love for
Florida, and especially for my dear
old home, Ocala, That it will always
hold first place in my heart and mem-
ory, and when life's fitful fever Is o'er
may my dust ming!e with her soil."
The news from the bedside of Mrs.
Chace, who has been at Dr. Kelley's
sanitarium in Baltimore for the past
six weeks, remains very much the
same. There is very little change,
although she has been free from fever
most of the paFt fortnight.

Mr. T. B. Lanier of Lake county and
Colonel J. H. Jones of the beautiful
city of Orlando, were visitors to Ocala
Tuesday and made this otfce a ples-
ant call that night. Colonel Jones is
here on professional business.

pioneer citizens, was a visitor Tues-

their New Year was made very hap-

Late yesterday afternoon a big wag-
on load of young boys and girls drove
out to Silver Springs, where they
spent a short while, had lunch and re-

thousand inhabitants and houses are

phosphate plants almost in a stone's
throw of the court house which add
largely to its trade and traffic.

Attorney Beck just can't quit talk-
ing about our county fair. He says he
has attended many different fairs, but
never in his life has he seen one that
could equal ours when one considers
the short time in which it was gotten
up and carried out. He says no other
county could equal it if given twelve
months to prepare for it.

Mr. J. W. Whisenant represented
Belleview in Ocala Tuesday.

between trains.
Mr. C. A. Tremere. the popular post-

citizen of Belleview, was in the city
yesterday. He gives a good report of
the condition of things in general in
the City of Oaks.
Mr. M. Atkinson, as is his custom,
was in Ocala Friday, and his first
business was to renew his subscrip-
tion to the Ocala Banner. He has
been doing this now for the last forty
years, and it has become a custom al-
most as binding as law.
In printing a list of the contributors
to the Marion County Fair the name
of Mr. Frank W. Ditto was uninten-
tkoally omitted. He was not only a
contributor but took great interest in
the fair, and did all in his power to
make It a success.

Mr. Jack Williams, formerly of
Newberry, has bought the Mansion at
Citra, the old home of Mr. James A.
Harris. It was the finest residence in
the county at the tin:e it was built
and perhaps has not been equalled

Messrs. Wilbur and Charley Cleve-
1ad returned yesterday to Winter

themselves and their home town.

43.. Of this number of women pris-
oners, there were three white women
for both the years 1907 and 1908.
They are at the headquarters hospital
two being at Quincy and one at
Ocala. The report about white wo-
men state convicts being cent out in-
discrimnately with negro prisoners is
therefore a mistake. Of the total
number of prisoners handled during
1907 there were 29 deaths. Of these
five were killed in attempting to es-
cae: one was killed by a falling
Wall: 23 died natural deaths. It thus
appears that 1.32 per cent.: or 13.25
in evry 1000 die from natural causes.

$50 to $100 per acre. If the reclaimed
lands will produce only vegetables,
the present market could be over-
stocked. Their productiveness would
be limited to a limited market. If the
lands will successfully produce sugar,
as many believe, their value of pro-
ductiveness will be greatly increased.

Parole Sentence
I like thel Michigan laws in v-garti
to sentencing prisoners for first of-
fense much better than our laws. The
judges who do the sentencing may im-
pose a minimum or mnaximunm sen-
tence oiln the saimet offenders. Ill the
minimum sentence the prisoner must
pay costs of court and if a fine is im-
posed pay the fine. and if properly
has been stolen or destroyed he must
make good this loss. and must behave
himself while under sentence. In the
meantime the prisoner is out on pa-
role. Should the prisoner misbehave.
or show signs of not paying costs of
court, fine, or make good the loss he
has caused then the maximum fine be-
conims ol,1'rativ\e. and lthe prisoner is
confined to hard labor. etc.
The state loses nothing by this kind
of a law. The tipisoner is given a
chance to redeenm himself from being
a convict. The owner of stolen or
damaged goods gets his just dues. arnd

Dr. Blitch Contributes Anothe Article on This Subject and

Tells of the Session of the Recent Prison Congress

To the Honorable Board of Commis-
sioners of State Institutions, Talla-
hassee, Fla.:
Gentlemen-I present herewith a re-
port of my attendance on the sessions
of the National Prison Congress,
which were held in Richmond, Va.,
November 14th to 19th, 1908.
The registration was larger than
that of any previous assembling of
the association. Thirty-six states, the
Ditrict of Columbia, Nova Scotia,
Canada and Cuba were represented.
The United States government, the
navy, and the department of justice
had delegates in attendance.
Every southern state, with two ex-
ceptions, had representation, and the
Interest and activity displayed by
them astonished the congress.
The sections of the congress are:
The Prison Physicians' Association.
Association of Governing Boards of
Penal, Reformatory and Preventive
The National Chaplains' Associa-
The National Wardens' Association.
Briefly stated 'the objects of the as-
sociation are:
1. The improvement of the laws in
relation to public offenses and offend-
ers, and the modes of procedure by
which such laws are enforced.
2. The study of the causes of
crime, the nature of offenders and
their social surroundings, the best
methods of dealing with offenders and
of preventing crime.
3. The improvement of the Ipnal,
correctional and reformatory institu-
tions throughout the country, and of
the government, management and dis-
cpline thereof, including the appoint-
ment of boards of trustees and o;her
4. The care of and providing suita-
ble and remunerative employment for
discharged prisoners, and especially
such as may or shall have given evi-
dence of reformation of life.
True southern hospitality was never
more marked than that exhibited by
the local entertainment committee; in
fact, by the whole city of Richmond.
One delegate from Kansas City said:
"Yours is the greatest hospitality and
your people know more about how to
etertain than those of any city we
have yet visited."
Secretary Butler said: "The closing
hoars of the session being as largely
attended as in the beginning is an ev-
dence of increasing interest and c;-
pecially a compliment to the city's
Preventive rather than curative
methods of suppression of crime in
Interest and discussion towered im-
messureably above all other subjects.
Really this feature of the meeting was
Governor Swanson said in part:
"When governments spend as lluch
. I preventing crime as they do in pun-
Ithlng it there will be great improve-
"If institutions that beg will devote
themselves to getting positions for
the idle there will be great reforma-
tion. I should like to see those who
lre Idlers-those who will not work-
put on the public roads to labor."
It cannot be denied that the Ameri-
can Prison Congress is the most po-
test factor extant in the amelioration
of prison life, the suggestion of meth-
ods tending to prevent crime and
ways and means by which reforma-
tion can be most effectively establish-
ed and operated.
The congress is doing a great ser-
vice, is accomplishing a wondrous
tak in unraveling the complex, the

laborlous problems associated with
the subject of criminology and the tri-
umphant idea that penal institutions
rust be not only punitive but reform-
alry as well.
In the discussion of the prevention
of crime the paper of most interest to
the association, and especially to the
physicians' section of the congress
was a paper by Dr. Carrington on
"Sterilization of Habitual Criminals."
Understand the operation of steriliza-
tion interferes with no function ex-
cept that of reproduction. Dr..H. C.
Sharp of Jeffersonville. Ind.. informed
the writer that he had sterilized 250 in
his institiuion, with the result that
they invariably gained in weight. im-
proved mentally, morally and slept
The author of the paper has steriliz-
ed two and each proved as proper a
health measure as the removal of the
aplwndix. Dr. Carrington expressed
the opinion that reformation of our
mi.7-.*n 1 zIns,- andj m enarelo c fn r

deterrent remedy is demand led an .l
sterilization is that agency.
He said it would be necessary io
establish an understanding of thu t rmin
before the remedy would be a just
one to enforce, naming the incorrigi-
ble, "second term" man-those guilty
of arson, assault, train-wrecking and
murder, as subjects to be treated as
We know that many criminals inher-
it their instincts. Detectives of forty
years' service will tell you that a
large percentage of prison inmates
are hereditary criminals. As Dr. Car-
rington expressed it: "If the granld-
father had been sterilized what a lot
of crime and suffering would have
been prevented. Sterilize the grand-
son for the good it will do in the conl-
ing years. Certain families have 1 een
on the prison rolls in Virginia for fifty
years and will continue to be unless
the breed is stopped."
The jails, as usual. were rolunly
Sabused-were castigated, as they de-
serve to be. The president of the as-
sociation said that the jails were a
venerable inheritance from Englanld.
and no better than the jail of Reading
at the time John Bunyan was incarcer-
ated therein. ('ondenination, dire andl
fateful, has fallen at every prison
congress upon their awful condition.
The congress appointed an able
committee, which. we Iblieve, will e'f-
te(e a practical solution of the triou-
ble omne jails.
In his paper, "Tuberculosis and tho
Colored Convict," Dr. Sloan said: "To
imprison men in jails where the laws
of hygiene and sanitation are disre-
garded is criminal, and yet these con-
ditions prevail here in the capital city
of the state. The danger of propagat-
ing disease germs, developed In our
miserable jails, is serious."
Speaking of the jails and their mis-
erable, filthy appearances the con-
gross declares: "The typical jail is a
school of animalism, a reproach to civ-
ilization, to state and to local author-
The county jail is intended to pro-
mote the good order of the comnmuni-
ty. but is a potent factor in every form
of demoralization serving a purpose
the opposite of that for which it was
It is possible to lesser the jail in-
mates if those held for trial did not
object, and the commonwealth's attor-
ney was willing to put them upon our
If such jail prisoner at his trial is
convicted, credit him on his term or
fine, as the case may be, by the num-
ber of days he has labored at 50 cents
py:- day. If acquitted, he shall be paid
5' cents per day for each day ne la-
bors for the state, county or city.
There is a growing sentiment in the
congress of giving remuneration to
the family) prisoner for his work.
There are many families of convicts
who would not seek charity, but often
suffer and sometimes die for the lack
of sustenance. This is the idea: Pay
no attention to the repeated pleas of
the criminal who urges clemency for
the reason that an aged mother. cls-
i titu;e children and feeble wife need
him. at hom.e, but if his labor niore
