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.

A Question

An Answer

SWritten for the Ocala Banner.)

We extend greeting, also delighted welcome in our home
paler to the charming poetess of Tallahassee (formerly of this
county) and hope Mrs. Knott will often entertain us with beau-
tiful poetry, and any other writings she may feel inclined to
contribute to "our Banner." WHITE ROSE.

Mrs. Knott's Question

"If no one knew that you and I
performed the loving deed;
If no one knew whose hand supplied
The wants of those in need:
if no one knew and no one cared
Whether we of our bounty spared.
iSave One who dwells in heaven above),
Would we perform the deed of love?
If no one knew, or praised our name,
would d we perform it just the same?"


TI ;ia,proval of the ".One who dwells in heaven above"
should most assuredly incite us to perform the "deed of love."
\'What is earthly praise compared with our Heavenly Father's
S:,Jiio of upprohation?

Yes. friends-
An t'arly flower bestowed unasked.
A light and cautious tread,
A voice to softest whispers hushed.
To spare an aching head;
Oh. things like these. though little things,
Kindliest love disclose:
.s fragrant atoms on the air
Reveal the hidden rose.


"If friends should doubt and misconstrue
The motives of the good we do,
And persecute us day by day
By all that they could do or say;
If censure, in her scorn, should rise,
Our every effort to despise;
If grief and sorrow also came.
And grave suspicions brought our name
Down low to whisperings of shame,
Would we perform the loving deed
And help supply the brother's need?"


The contemptible vile brother, in that case. certainly would
not deserve "the loving deed." Scorn and avoidance should be
his portion. Vou know it takes a Jesus to pray for such an evil-
minded persecutor. Man. not woman, crucified even glorious
Jesus. the pure Son of God.

Not she with trait'rous kiss her Savior stung.
Not she denied him with unholy 'tongue:
She. when apostles shrunk, could daggers brave.
Last at the cross and earliest at the grave.

If scandal's mean lip would seek to stain the name you hold
as honor's crown, by your own purity of character refute the
low lie. Avoid the base originator as a serpent, vicious and
poisonous. Those who tamper with a pure character are destined
to the most awful place in the world hereafter.


Rather than shirk our Master's work,
Would we a thorny path pursue?
Would you and I prefer to die
Rather than be untrue?
Woul we count everything but loss
And glory only in the cross
Of Jesus crucified?
And would our hearts be satisfied,
And still delight His will to do
If no one saw and no one knew?


The precious words of Jesus awaken within us 'the idea of
what we are here for. or of what we are doing with our life. We
are here to contribute something of worth to the great life of
humanity of which we form a part. We are a part of a great
whole-that whole is humanity.

If God permits, we sure can trust
His depthless love so true:
His ways. unknown, are ever just.
His mercies ever new.
We will nut stray
From God's own way.
In which His wislnom. now conc,'alt'd.
SonIIt liy. by love. will bt' rrvel-'d.


"All. v.h1, 'r'i i ,Iwels thI sI wt' t t td sire?
What moves .-o o' iwv'k inspire?'
W\ouild ou and I s(' joyful lhe
If th' re were none io know or see,
And none to praise the good we .1o?
Would you and I bI) just as true
If no one knew?


, lJust now everything seems to be whispering, "Hope'" The
leaves have burst forth, the flowers are shedding their fragrance
S o'er beautiful lawns, o'er meadows and hills, yet, when atrtumn

There are many ways in which 1i serve

The Easter meeting of the Young
Ladies' Card Club was held on Satur-
day afternoon with Mrs. Edwhrd
Thomas Helvenston as the hostess.
There were no meetings of this club
during the Lenten season, as so many
of the members are Episcopalians, and
this compliment to them was much
appreciated. The weekly meetings of
this club have been very greatly miss-
ed, and the afternoon with Mrs. Hel-
venston had been looked forward to
with a great deal of pleasure, and
each one present enjoyed the occasion
very thoroughly.
Since the last meeting of the club,
one of its most popular members,
Miss Margaret Eagleton, has moved
to Pennsylvania, and she was greatly
missed by her friends on Saturday.
The members of the club present at
Mrs. Helvenston's were the following:
Mrs. Harvey Clark. Mrs. C. S. Cullen,
Mrs. C. H. Lloyd, Mrs. J. H. Taylor,
Mrs. Sandford Jewett, Misses Sarah
McCreery. Meta Jewett, Valeta Pot-
ter. Ethel Robinson, Susie Fort, Es-
ther Weathers, Margaret Taylor. Mrs.
Helvenston also had as her guests
Mrs. Lee Miller, Mrs. George Mac-
Kay. Misses Ida Fort. Edith McGuire,
Anne Mixon. Annie Davis. Annie At-
kinson. Mrs. Albert Birdsey, Mrs. B.
A. Weathers. Mrs. O. T. Green, Mrs.
Charles Rheinauer, and late in the af-
ternoon the players were joined by
Mrs. S. T. Sistrunk.

Martin, Fla., April 19, 1909
Mr. William Knoblock, an old and
respected citizen of Marion county,
died at his residence at Martin Satur-
day afternoon. He was nearly eighty
years of age, and having lived in Flor-
ida the greater part of his time he!

was wise, and veritable history about
many of the most vital changes made
in the state during the past sixty
years. He often recounted the inci-
dents of early pioneer life, when the
bear, the deer, the panther and the
Indian held sway in many parts that
are now alive with a frugal and hap-
py people. The now beautifull city of
Ocala was, he has c.ten said, in his
boyhood days, a forest dense, and the
retreat of wild birds and every varie-
ty of varment. As a boy he drove ox-
en to Silver Springs and hauled flour
into the interior of the state. There
were no railroads in those days, and
he with other white settlers often
walked the lonely trails of the lurking
Indians, not knowing when his and
their own scalps would adorn the tro-
phy-belts of the chiefs.
Besides having seen much of the in-
dian life, Mr. Knoblock was in the
civil war, and followed the fortunes
of fair Florida during the reign of
shot and shell and through the days
that tried men's souls, and often he
faced the belching cannon, the rattle
of musketry and stood by the side of
red death, believing that honor and
country made all his imperative duty.
Six weeks ago %e conTracted a se
vere cold that brought about compli-
cations that weakened him daily till
the end came.
His life was one of great activity
and his vitality and energy seemed
more like the powers to be found in
a man of forty. His usefulness to his
,section is unquest'fned. Formerly he
gave much time to agricultural pur-
suits. and once was a very successful
grower of citrus fruits. During 'the
past few years lie has taken life corm-
paratively easy. but was never con-
tent unless in profitable business of
some kind. At his death he owned a
well stocked mercantile establishment
and other profitable investments.
NMr. Knoblock was a strong and or-
iginal thinker. and above all one of
the closest observers. He had high
ideals and his sense of honor was
characteristic. He lived up to the
hien standards demanded- by him of

From Friday's Daily:
The cool. appealing fragrance of
choice flowers, the tracery of fronds
and greenery, and the sylvan suggest-
iveness of fresh vines, made 'the Phil-
lips home on South Third street one
of the most delightful of places on
Thursday afternoon. ani the 1:ink
shaded lights all over the house added
just the right touch to 'the rooms.
The occasion was a large reception
given by the attractive older daugh-
ter of the home. Miss Anne Mixon,
as a compliment io her lovely guest,
Miss Edith McGuire, of Smethport,
Pa. They received in the parlor, and
both were handsomely gowned. Miss
M1ixon wore a seot white silk tulle
over pink, and Miss McGuire's gown
was white lace over pink taffeta, and
she carried a lovely arm bouquet of
pink roses, white and pink being the
color motif of tLis attractive party.
There were pink and white roses in
vases, in groups and clusters, in be-
vies and companies, the effect being
very bewitching in all the rooms, and
especially in the dining room. The
round table was covered with a hand-
some Cluney cloth, and as the table
centerpiece there was a tall vase of
exquisite long-stemmed pink roses,
and around the outer edge of the ta-
ble was a thick wreath of smilai. Ex-
tending from the ten'ter of the table
to the two chandeliers were pink rib-
bons entwined with the lovely smi-
Between the hours of three and six
o'clock nearly an hundred and fifty
guests were presented to 'the lovely
honor guest.
The front veranda was enclosed
with screens, and at the punch bowl
Miss Pauline Sull'van and Miss Car-
rie Williams, gowned in pink and
white, served this cooling liquid. The
punch table was quite lovely, the
bowl being almost hidden in a bed of
'the daintiest of white and pale pink
sweet peas.
On the front veranda Mrs. S. T. Sis-
trunk. prettily gowned in pale blue,
greeted everyone with a pleasant
smile. and entertained each one for
several minutes.
In the hall Mrs. C. .. Phillips. Mrs.
E. L.. (arney and Mrs. B. W. Mimms
.vwlcomed the guests in the very cor-
dial manner that is so characteristic
of these ladies.
Mrs. John Taylor introduced the
guests to the hostess and the honor
guest, and after chatting with them

a few moments. Mrs. Clarence Camp
invited them into the back parlor,
where Miss Ida Fort of Adams. Ten-
nessee. Miss Mamie Wilcox of
Gainesville, Miss Winnefredl Ra,:ilje
of Plaintield, New Jersey. Mrs Jack
Rentz of Levon and Misses Ophelia
Saw\iell and Frances Anderson, all of
whom wore beautiful gowns, werF re-
Mrs. Williaim Hariv'-y Clark asked
the guests into the lovely dining
Misses Alice Bullock. Annie Atkin-
son, Lillian Thagard, Betty Wray Mc-
Iver and Grace Hatchell were the
lovely group of yourig girls serving.
They all wore pretty white dresses
and pink sashes, their costumes fit-
ting in very prettily with the pink
and white cream and cake, dainty
pink and white mints and the salted
almonds, which they served, and with
the pink and white 'tones of the dec-
orations of this room.
At the door connecting the dining
roonl and the hall was .Mrs. John D.
Robertson, who had a pleasant word
for each of the ladies as they were
leaving this charming party.

The Ocala Woman's Club bkl -a
open meeting at the club roomsn Pr
day afternoon and there were ear-
ly fifty ladies present This was th
first time that the club members had
enjoyed the privilege of bringing their
friends who are not members of tiis
club with them. and quite a number
of outsiders were present, and ther-
oughly enjoyed the afternoon. whieh
was a most informal and please
one. Among the out of town visitors
present were T. B. Stringfellow
of Gainesville. Miss Tolmie of To-

nessee and Mr. Hall of Scranton. Pa.
The subject for the afternoon was
"Education." and a round table was
held. Several interesting articles re
lasting to this subject wer' read by
several of the club nmembwrs. which
were instructive as well as enjoyable.
At this meeting the ver hbtautiful
musical program, which was arraa-
ed by Mrs. D. E. Melver. was a very
great 'treat to the guests. Mrs. Me-
Iver played the accompaninients. and
the first number was a lovlyv song by
Mrs. T. I. Johnson. who never sang
sweeter." She was followed by Mrs.
Harry Lapham, whose song was a
very lovely one.
The two songs by Mr. Hall of Scrm-
ton, Pa., were very splendidly readers
ed, and suited his voice to perfectim.
He quite captivated his hear, and
be was obliged to reap.nd to aa n -
Miss Tolmie's two songs were alhm
very thoroughly enjoyed, as was ail
the exquisite song that was so fask-
lessly rendered by Mrs. Byrne.
Miss Mary Connor, whose viloa
music always delights, sustained her
reputation at -the Woman's Club by
the two lovely numbers she played.
Her sister, Mrs. B. ('ondon was
ner acompanist.
After the program the' nmiot deli-
cious punch was se-rved- by Mrs. H.
Mote and Mrs. F (;. H. Weibe. who
were the host.esse.s for 'ho af;,-rnrrm.

The first of the 'p'wn afternoons at

at a very delightful party, at wbet
they beautifully entertained a large
number of their young friend. The
guest of honor was their brother. Mr.

Colonel 8. H. Gaitsklll of McIntosh
and Mr. Z C. Chambliss of this city,
are back from Bartow, where they
have been attending the Cattle Rais-
ers' Association.
There were thirty-one cattle raisers
in attendance and some of them were
the owners of the largest herds in the
state. All were more or less delight-
ed with the steps taken by the fsso-
It seems that there has come an
end to the Cuban market and now all
Florida-raised beef must be sold al-
most entirely within the limits of the
state, and with all the herdsmen sell-
ing in competition with each other it
has reduced the selling price, while
the middle-men, and not the consum-
ers, have gotten the benefit of the re-
duction. The association at Bartow
has made it posisble for all the cattle
to be sold through a single agency,
and in this way better prices are hop-
ed for for the raisers. Most of the
cattle now grown in south Florida are
sold in Tampa.
The officers of the association are
the following:
President, Garrett Murphy.
Vice president, H. F. Moody.
Secretary, E. S. Skipper.
Colonel Gaitskill says that the cat-

tie in south Florida are in splendid
condition; that there have been more
rains in 'that section than with us,
which has given an impetus to the
growth of grass, and the ranges are,
in fine.shape.
He says that the truck farms are
also looking well and the people are
not only hopeful, but are sanguine.
The state's outlook is in every way

The announcement of .he resigna-
tion of Rev. Charles Chauncey Car-
roll as pastor of the First Baptist'
church in this city, on Stunday did not
come as a surprise, as it had been ru-
mored for several days that his resig-
nation would be banded in at the Sun-
day morning service, although many
hoped that the rumors were not true.
and that Mr. Carroll would reconsider
nis determination to leave us.
Mr. Carroll's resignation takes ef-
feet the middle of June. He has Deen
called to Owensboro. Ky., and he will
accept this call.
The Baptist church is grieved over
the going away of their beloved pas-
tor. This scholarly, Christian gentle-
man has gone in and out among us
most acceptably, being always found
on the side of right. Full of sympa-
thy for mankind and zeal in the cause
of the church, he has served well the
cause of the Master in this portion of
His vineyard. He has been an espe-
cial factor in the temperance cause,
and devoted a great deal of his time
and strength in the recent great tem-
perance fight in this county.
It is with sincere regret that we
part with Mr. Carroll. and with sn-
cere wishes for his success in the new
field of labor he will enter, and we ex-

Mr. Frlk Clark d a number of
other ngrsmm have got some-
what kot under the collar diaiusaing
the tariff. It sto a subject old enough
to be discussed dispaslonately.
The mistake Mr. Clark made, it
seems to us, was in going out of his
way to reproach and disparage the
whilom leaders of the democratic par-
ty, and In saying that he would vote
for the bill if the articles grown in
h4s distrlet were protected, regardless
of what fate befell other sections of
tli Country.
A position of this kind is narrow,

If protection is to be the policy of
.be nation the tariff duties should be
levied impartially, and regardless of
sectional and state lines.
Mr. Martin Dies of Texas takes the
position that this paper has always
advocated: Make the duties general
and impartial, and the objectionable
features will disappear.
Mr. Dies. speaking to the republi-
cans, says:
"Universal robbery amounts to no
robbery at all, because the robbed be-
comes the robber and the robber gets
robbed in his turn. You stand for a

one man and gives to another man. If

Dr. Andrew Sledd has resigned the
Presidency of the State University at


Gainesville, the same has been ac-
cepted, and -the state boards of con-
trol and education have elected Dr.
A. A. Murphree to fill the vacancy. A
few papers in the state have been
clamoring for Dr. Sledd's removal,
though none have shown wherein he
was deficient, or had given offense.
The Tampa Tribune comes ably to
the defense of Dr. Sledd. It says:
"Dr. Sledd has kept the State Uni-
versity just where it should be-out
of politics, and in its own sphere as
an institution of learning. He is such
a good educator that he is a failure
as a politician.
"Hence he must get out, say the
few who are stirring the discord.
"The Tribune thinks it will be a
sad day for the University when Dr.
Sledd is removed. The Tribune does
not enjoy the honor of Dr. Sledd's
acquaintance, but it has some ac-
quanitance with the work he is doing.
He is making the State University a
real university and there isn't anoth-
er man in Florida so well fitted for
the work as he.
"Keep him there, as long as he can
be kept there. Educators of his type
are usually out of the reach of states
like Florida."

Among the recommendations con-
cerning needed legislation made to
the attorney general of the state by
Circuit Judge W. S. Bullock of Ocala.
the allowing is uoted as peculiarly
significant and as directly according
with the Journal's contention during
a long period of 'time:
"In my judgment there should be a
general revision of the constitution of
the state, and, for this purpose, a
constitutional convention should be
held. There have been so many
amendments proposed by the legisla-
ture, some of which have been adopt-
ed, and some not, that it makes it
extremely difficult now to know just
what are the contsitutional provis-
ions of the state. I favor a constitu-
tional convention because, in my
judgment, men who are elected for
their peculiar fitness for such ser-
vice, are better qualified to frame an
organic law than the legislator who
has not been specially elected with
that view."
The constittuion of Florida, a most
imperfect instrument to serve its pur-
pose, even at the time of its adop-
'tion is now antiquated. It Is an act-
ual hindrance to the development of
the state. And. as Judge Bullock de-

the financial welfare of the country'

makes no bones of admitting that he

Colonel West is largely interested
in the West-Coffee Lumber Compano
of Inverness, Fla.. which has larg-
timber holdings. The lumbermen ot
the south, or many of them, think
that their interests will suffer, if hluim
ber is placed on the free list. Th.
duty of one dollar per thousand., the)
think, is not adequate to protect
them, and it is hardly probable that
they would complain if the Dingl-*>

Colonel West looks at the matter

To the Editor Ocala Banner:
That wail from Tnree bsars in Sat-
urday's Banner is very touching, but,
like most such 'plaints, "gits nowhar."
Inculcate rather a spirit of individu-
alism which makes for some other
destiny than 'the poor house or the
poor farm. Let there be less extrav-
agance in the lives of toiling men and
women, so that out of any wage
something must be saved for the old-
age time. so that all old folks will be
welcome at the family fireside, and
that there will be less call for state

It is a fact that there is too much
spending money uselessly on dress
and outward show, which, after all.
decieves no one. for the world is a
shrewd guesser, and sizes up man and
his income with merciless exactitude.
live within your income: buy only
what you really need. These are old-
tashioned maxims, much out of ta'te
in these days, but they. if adhered to.
will lay many a stout plank in the
bridge which carries the trembling
limbs andi silver hairs of the last of
the seven ages of man.

The Ocala Banner was honored Wed-
nesday afternoon by a visit from Mr.
\V... l Morrow, who has made a tour
of the world five times. He is a pleas-
ant and entertaining talker.
Mr. Morrow was a resident of
Ocala for a short while in 1884, and
boarded at the old Magnolia hotel,
when it was kept by Mrs. Fanny
Steel. He operated an artificial stone
plant here, and was one of the first
to anticipate this business, which has
since grown to such enormous propor-
tions in all parts of the world.
Mr. Morrow remembers many of
our "oolt timers." and made pleasant
inquiries concerning them.
Since leaving Ocala Mr. Morrow re-
turned to his old home in Orange, N.
.J., re-engaged in the hat manufactur-
ing business, and made money enough
to retire on comfortably, and since
which time ha. amused himself by
leisurely traveling over the world and
stiiulying irs pcoplos and its customs.
P!f has visitedl --very ci-ty of promni-


stories, and almost every city of ..i
portance in all parts of the world
His store of information, of cour4*-. i
very wonderful, and his conversatio
is entertaining to a degree.
He says that Ocala has madl. r
markable improvements since hia .a&r"
visit and the improvements are ;.*'
manent and substantial. e HP ay- tha!
Orange, N. J., is famed all o\er tb.
world for its beautiful lawns. b tr i
has no lawn more beautiful than that
surrounding our court house II.
says it is the finest advertsemenrn bh
has seen in Florida. Mr. Morrow
a fast friend of Florida's. andi ;.\
that its climate far surpasses t'alifor
nia's, and must mre and more tb ap
preciated. Mr. Morrow is stopping a*
the Oklawaha Inn, and will be ht-r
for several days.

Mr. C. A. Tremere, the popui.r
Belleview merchant, was in Ocala on
Tuesday. He was here in company
with Mr. McClure. He says that near
ly all the northern tourists han. ..

nonct. in the United States and terri- parted from thf *c('ity of Oaks.

From Saturday's Daily:
Twenty-nine members were present
when the senate was called to order
at 10 o'clock Thursday.
Despite the efforts of Senator
Beard, the senate declined to consider
his statutory prohibition bill when it
came up as a special order, but post-
poned the special order until Friday
of next week. This action was taken
because Senator McMullen explained
that on that date the temperance
committees of both houses will con-
sider the constitutional amendments
and will hear arguments on both sides
of the question.
The senate killed the bill of Sena-
tor Sloan repealing the present bill
lIgalizing horse racing. But there is
another bill before the senate having
the same object in view, as well as
one in the house.
Senator Williams' bill prohibiting
the attendance of negroes upon white
gatherings, and vice versa, was also
reported unfavorably and indefinitely
There were several new bills be-
fore the senate.
There were also several bills plac-
ed on escond reading, among them be-
ing bill No. 11, by Senator Johnson,
requiring clerk of supreme court in
cases in which reports are written, to
send copy to clerk of circuit court of
county from which case is appealed.
Reported favorably to third reading.
Bill No. 29, Henderson-Relating to
the drawing of juries for the second
and succeeding weeks of circuit court.
Reported favorably to third reading.
Bill No. 47-Relating to penalty for
cheating. Reported favorable, to
third reading.
No. 33-Prohibiting attendance of
white gatherings by negroes and vice
versa. Reported unfavorably.
Mr. Wililams, who introduced the
bill, said: "We cannot be too careful
in the question of social equality in
this southland of ours. I speak from
bitter experience. A class of young
white men attend negro gatherings in
my county, thus disregarding rules of
society. All crime nearly comes from
that source."
Motion to postpone was lost.
No. c3-Authorizing state board of
health to acquire and maintain a 'tu-
berculosis sanitarium. Reported fa-
vorable, to third reading.
Several other bills were reported fa-
vorable and passed to third reading,
after which adjournment was taken
until 10 o'clock Friday morning.
A bill introduced by Mr. Wall of
Bradford created an animated discus-
sion in the lower branch of the leg-
islature Thursday morning.
The hill provides that in all prose-
cutions, of criminal cases in state
courts for larceny, theft, breaking
and entering, obtaining money by
false or fraudulent pretense or for of-
fenses of like character, where prop-
erty is a permanent loss to the own
er, it shal be the duty of the trial
judge to admit testimony as to 'the
true nature of all such property or
money of which the owner has been
permanently deprived, and the jury
upon rendering a verdict of guilty
against the defendant, shall state in
such finding the true value of the

property lost; that the judge shall
give a certificate to the injured per-
son, showing the amount of damages.
the certificate to be paid by the offi-
cer collecting the fine imposed.
Quite noticeable was the lining up
in opposition to the bill of the lawyer
members of the house, who hold that
although the passage of the bill would
not affect their profession one way or
another, they could see no good mer-
its contained by the measure in its
present form.
Mr. Chaires of Lafayette offered an
amendment to the effect that the law
shall not apply to any person who has
a good civil right of action against the
party defendant, which prevailed.
Motion to indefinitely postpone ac-
tion upon the bill was lost by a vote

No. 210-To amend statutes relat
ing to discharge of firearms in public.
The speaker then announced on be-
half of Hon. Frank Clark that the lat-
ter desired to be heard by the house

pointed Cam, Hardee and Newton to

Mr. Roberson asked privilege to

vious day inviting Dr. Andrew Sledd
to address house, saying that he fear-
ed the resolution might cause embar-

resolution was withdrawn.

A special from Norwalk, Conn.,
says that Plato, an auto dog. owned
by Dr. Frank Chase. released the
brake on the doctor's big automobile
at the top of Westport Hill one after-
noon. The high-power car zigzagged
at full speed down the street, knock-
ing people and teams this way and
that, and taking wheel off carriages,
dashed through the fence of St. Paul's
church and landed in a pond in the
rear of the building.

front seat, his nose up and his eyes
half closed, seemingly too proud to

1 .;ak t llis oStep- imll --
1towing reasons:
1. : understand that the board of
control is entirely subordinate to the
state board of education, so that.
while you may (and do) desire to re-
tain my servicess for the state, you
are not free to follow your own judg-
ment in the matter. I undertsand,
also, that a majority of the state
board of education, under the influ-
ence of State Superintendent Hollo-
way (whose hostility to me, and the
causes of it, and manifestations of it,
are well known to your board), is un-
willing to ratify my election by you.
The consequences of your unqualified
support of my election under the cir-
cumstances, it is not proper for me
to assume. I must, therefore, tender
my resignation, in order that you may
have entire liberty of action in the
premises, and be freed from any pos-
sible embarrassment on my account.
2. As I understand the present sit-
uation, it has a sinister political his-
tory and significance, with the details
of which your board is more or less
familiar. If my position is to be regard-
ed and dealt with, as a political office,
if my tenure of office is to be dependent
upon my acquiescence in the applica-
tion of political methods to the admin-
istration of an educational enterprise,
my past record and present attitude
necessitate my resignation.
3. So far as I am aware, the only
criticism made against me is ,that the
institution does. not have as many stu-
dents as the critics think it ought to
have. I must absolutely repudiate
the number standard as the proper
test of the efficiency and success of
an institution of learning. This insti-
tution was established to provide a
reasonably high collegiate education
for the young men of the state. I
think I may venture to say. with prop-
er modesty, that it is accomplishing
this result. I may add, also, that i't
has more college students than any
other institution in the state. If it is
demanded that numbers must be se-
cured without reference to their fit-
ness for the work, or to the methods
adopted for securing them, I am cer-
tainly not the man for the place, and
am unwilling 'to hold the position I.
now hold under any such, conditions.
I am only a school man. I must
conduct an educational enterprise
along lines of sound educational poli-
cy as I understand it. I cannot do
more; I will not do less.
Finally, in presenting this resigna-
tion, I desire to express to the board
of corrtrol my sincere appreciation of
your kindness and courtesy toward
me, and of your cordial support in the
midst of many and unusual difficul-
ties. I desire, also, to make one final
request, namely, that you give to the
public the full details of this whole
transaction. You gentlemen have
known me and my work intimately
for four years. You know the whole
course of my administration, and the
whole series of events culminating in
the present situation. In simple jus-
tice to myself and to my record, as
well as in 'the larger interests of the
state of which we are the common
servants, I urge you to give all the
facts to the public, which is entitled
to know exactly how we have adminis-
tered our public trusts. Such action
on your part would be a crowning
service to the case of political de-
cency and sound educational policy
in the state: and I urge upon you,
as my final recommendation, that you
make all the facts known 'to all the

The real opposition was started in
the senate with the introduction of a
resolution for a constitutional amend-

Tampa. A similar resolution is now
before the house.
Senator McMulle. also introduced a

sary for assessment purposes, divide
their respective counties into taxation
districts, and that the assessor "may"
employ for each district an assistant
assessor, etc., but the section has not
sufficient force to accomplish the re-
sults desired, nor to draw favorable
attention from the said officials, and,
presumably, the county commission-
ers, as well as the assessors of the
state, are quite willing to let well
enough (?) alone.
It will take a legislature to enforce
the necessary reform in this matter,
and the section above quoted should
and will have to be amended in such
way as to make it the imperative and
bounden duty of I*e county commis
sioners to immediately divide their
respective counties into taxation dis-
tricts for purposes of assessment, or
let the legislature define the districts
and enact the same into law.
Some such method must be adopted,
else we cannot hope for equalization
of taxes, and. therefore, the same old
system of "tax dodging" will be per-
petuated. Tax dodging is a privileged
evil. nor can we by force of reasoning,
see it in any other light.
In the state of Illinois, where Mr.
Bacon resides, each township has its
supervisor, assessor and clerk.
The assessor klaws every section
and fraction thereof, in his township;
essentially he knows, and becomes
personally acquainted with each and
every tax payer in his township. He
also knows the value of all personal
property on the premises of every cit-
This knowledge is the direct result
of the assessor's personal contact
with. not only the tax payer, but also
actually seeing the property for as-
sessment, in the hose, in the barn. in
the field and pasture, and. if that of-
ficial shows remTssness in his duty
the supervisor is very apt to jog his
On the other hand, if the party as-
sessed feels aggrieved by 'the assess-
Sment he seeks redress from a town-
ship board of equalizers, the said su-
pervisor, assessor and township clerk
constituting the board.
If. this township board fails in its
effort to equalize, the case is then ta-
ken before the board of supervisors
at a special meeting for equalization
of taxes, said meeting being held at
the county seat. By the above meth-
od taxable property is brought out
and each man bears his just share ot
government burden.
Of course the foregoing applies to
the county districts. All cities have
their dodgers, and the more wealthy
the man the more artful the dodger.
But we hear many and varied com-
ments on this matter of taxation and
We are asked why doesn't the legis-
lature do this or that or some other
thing? Or, what is the legislature for,
anyway? Well. the legislature is a
body of men in a state invested with
power to make and repeal laws.
What is law. anyhow? It is an es-
tablished or permanent rule prescrib-
ed by the legislature and is, or should
be, imperative or mandatory, for the
purpose of regulating society for the
general welfare.
Are we getting it?
Well, Judging frnm the insurmount

lutely nothing; generally, the knowl-
edge is common property.
Is our county going to be divided
up? You are referred to the Honora-
ble Syd. He is IT! (perhaps).


If there is any democrat in my state
or elsewhere that is fooling himself
into the belief that by our party em-
bracing the doctrine of protection or
by his vote for protection, though it
be on his 'home industry," he is go-
ing to keep within the folds of the
democratic party in North Carolina or
the south or bring into its ranks the
men who favor pr tection, then hl
should at once undeceive himself. A
sensible protectionist will go to the
party that has taught protection for
fifty years and not to the party thai
has always opposed it. (Applause.)
Every man who desires special leg-
islation for his special interest knows
that his place is in the republicaL
party. (Applause on the democratic
side). He will join the party that
Ias made a success of robbing all the
people for the benefit of the few (Ap-
plause on the democratic side).
He will not come to us or stay with
us, because he knows that this scheme
of plundering the millions for the ben
efit of the few would be an experi-
ment with the democratic party. (Ap-
plause on the democratic side.)-Hon.

Ex-Governor N. B. Broward left
yesterday for Jacksonville to be gone
several days. He will return, how-
ever. and continue his stay through
the legislative season.-Tallahassee
Morning News.
If instead of hanging about ralla-
hassee, trying to influence legislation,
ex-Governor Broward would emulate
the example of ex-President Roose-
velt to the extent of withdrawing him-
self from the scene of his recent po-
litical activities, he would certainly
be doing the proper caper, the one
thing best calculated to quiet his en-
emies and retain his friends. The ex-
governor shows bad judgment, to say
the least, in interfering-with the ad-
ministration of his successor, and his
recent efforts to influence the legisla-
ture in the selection of its presiding
officers, are being severely criticized.
The ex-governor may not be able to
go to Africa and hunt the lion and
ourang-outang, but he could hie him-
self to the fastnesses of his loved Ev-
erglades and spend his enforced re-
tirement from the cares of state in
teasing the rubber-necked heron.
banging away at the hell-divers and
doing his utmost to secure a specimen
limpkin for Representative Carter. In
such an occupation he would neither
harm himself, the state nor the birds.

himself by giving lessons in kiss-

to throw a kiss gracefully. The gen-

Can it be possible the worthy pro-

is he ignorant of the fact that Fair-

The former possibility may be con-
doned; 'the latter can be excused only
on the ground that the erudite pro-
fessor has not yet completed his
