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.

until the time of his death, five year
ago. In his young manhood he trav
eled extensively on foot in this coun
try and Europe, and wrote several:
books about his travels, which rival it
interest those of Bayard Taylor. HE
also wrote several books for the gov,
ernment about the American Indians
and they are regarded as an authority
on the Indian races.
Dr. Powers spent two years at the
Florida Agricultural College at Lake
City. after which he took a three years'
course at Vanderbilt University,
Nashville, Tenn., and at the age of
twentv-three was graduated with hon-
ors in a large class from the medical
department. A few months after his
graduation he came to Ocala, and in
the ten years that he has been with
us has led a beautiful life. He had
high ideals and lived up to them. He
had built up a magnificent practice
and was recognized as one of the lead-
ing physicians in the state, and had

For several days his family and
friends had known that the end was
near, but had hoped against hope that
he would grow better, but about six-
thirty Saturday afternoon he had a
sudden sinking spell, from which he
never fully rallied, but almost until
the end he retained consciousness.
His patience, forbearance and
thoughtfulness for the loved ones
about him was most beautiful and nev-
er once did he murmur nor complain.
In his speech and action he was most
gentle and considerate, and on until
the end his unselfishness was appar-
ent, almost his last words being ones
of consolation to his wife, and though
for months he suffered intensely nev-
er a groan escaped his lips. In fact
so thoroughly did he guard his feel-
ings that scarcely anyone realized his
real condition. A few weeks before
the end came his wife took him to
North Carolina, but so ill did he be-
come and so homesick for Ocala that
he was brought back to the lovely lit-
tle home that was so dear to him; and
he passed away in the town he loved
so well and among the friends who
almost idolized him.
His death came almost at the lour
he had anticipated, and to him was a
welcome relief from his earthly suf-

Dr. Powers' life, though brief, has
been a great blessing to the world in
which be lived. He was no dreamer.
He did things. He believed in pro-
gress. He was a worker. In the few
years that he lived he did more than
the common allotment of good. He
died young, but we can truly say that
he lived a noble life.

every spare moment, when hi
strength permitted, was spent i
studying and experimenting on th
subject of this dread disease, an(
had he been permitted to remain wit]
us a few more years was donfiden
that he could have solved this prol
lem. For several years he studies
and experimented to find a cure fo
lockjaw, and last year succeeded iit
perfecting this cure, which has since
been tried on several occasions and
in different parts of the country, and
all with the same gratifying result
and lockjaw is now recognized as a
curable disease.
At five o'clock Monday afternoon
the funeral was held from the resi
dence and was attended by almost the
entire citizenship of Ocala. Represen
tatives of the Elks, Masons, Woodmer
of the World and Odd Fellows, ol
which lodges he was a member, were
present at the funeral, and during the
service all of the stores in the city
were closed by proclamation of the
mayor in respect to the memory ol
Dr. Powers. The shooting of cannon
crackers and other noisy demonstra.
tions in celebration of the 4th of July
was prohibited. Every respect and
consideration was shown the dead and
his sorrowing young widow.
The flowers sent for the funeral
were the most magnificent ever seen
in Ocala, and he was truly buried in
a garden of fragrant flowers in the
restful shadows of Geenwood ceme-
tery, in the city he loved so well, and
to which for ten years he gave of his
best and his all.
His highest tribute lies in the ache
in the hearts of those who, calling
him and knowing him as frien-l, fol-
lowed him to where he takes his final
sleep in the grave prepared for him
by loving, tender hands. His proud-
est eulogy is found in the tears that
rimmed the eyes of all the long funer-
al cortege, the trembling lips and the
grief that spoke itself in the silent
eloquence of flowers.
Rev. George Hendree Harrison of
Grace Episcopal church, an intimate
friend of the deceased, read the beau-
tiful burial service. He was assisted
by Rev. T. J. Nixon of the Methodist
church, of which Dr. Powers was a
member, and by Rev. W. H. Dodge of
the Presbyterian church. The honor-
ary pall bearers were Dr. A. L. Izlar,
Dr. W. V. Newsom, Dr. D. M. Smith,
Dr..H.-C. Dozier, Dr. Walter Hood, Dr.
E. Van Hood, Dr. J. M. Thompson, Dr.
Eaton G. Lindner and Dr. H. C. Hul-
bert. The active pall bearers were
Messrs. J. J. Gerig, H. C. Jones, J.
Sandford Jewett, M. J. Roess, E. J.
Crook and Dr. J. Edward Chace.
"Asleep in Jesus" was very sweetly
sung by Mrs. C. E. Winston. Mrs. E.

which the body was taken to the cem-;

One of the first real tragedies we
have had in the electrical line oc-
curred Saturday morning, when Mose
Boyd, the lineman, was impaled on
one of the wires, and when the cur-
rent was shut off fell to the ground
on the brick pavement below.
He was a man of powerful frame,
and as he was restored to conscious-
ness he died from the effects of the
injuries received from the fall and
not from the electric volts that pass-
ed through his body.
Mose Boyd had been working for
the company for a long time, and had
become so accustomed to climbing
poles and handling the wires' that be
became less cautious than a new be-
ginner, and his want of carefulness
cost him his life.

ent of the plant, was preset when the

and for several seconds was Impaled
and dangled in the air.
There were several bystanders who
beheld the thrilling spectacle, and
they describe it as almost nerve-rack-
ing, especially when the powerful
man was released and fell crashing to
the sidewalk.
The unfortunate lineman was im-
mediately taken to the hospital, and
everything was done for him possible,
but after reviving he soon again laps-
ed into unconsciousness and died.
The accident is very much regret-
ted. He was buried Sunday afternoon,
and his funeral was very largely at-
tended, almost the entire colored
population being present.

In a Full Game of Errors and Hits the
Home Boys Were Victorious
From Friday's Daily:
It rained before the game and after
it. The field was wet and the ball
slippery. Under these conditions gilt
edged baseball was not expected. Be-
fore the rain a large Thursday after-
noon crowd had gathered at the Ninth
street lot to witness the match be-
tween the local team and the boys
from Palatka. The rain drove the
crowd into the grand stand and under
When the clouds stopped dripping
for a while the game was called, with
Palatka at the bat. Bridges, the first
man up, was retired at first. Sclph
hit safely to center field. Calhoun
reached the first station on Jewctt's
error. Selph scored and Calhoun went
to third on B. Collins' double to left
field. Dillon hit past short and Cal-
houn scored. P. Collins fanned. Thom-
as put one down the first base l;n-.
which Brown missed, and B. Collin,
and Dillon tallied. With these iou;i
runs in the first inning it lookc.i as
though the score wouldhisurely i ni

ALd ti s the large clock on the wall,

That grows beeatb the waning day,
There are the handsome features-there
The able brow, hair slightly gray.
Dear father, when they laid thee down.
And hmp'd the clay upon thy breast,
AL left thee sleeping all alone
WItua thy narrow couch of rest;
I kw ot why I could not weep.
The Iothing drops refused to roll,
Aad O! that grief is wild and deep
S Which settles tearless on the soul.
Set whe 1 saw thy vacant chair.

The book-the pencil'd message-there
Thine eyes had rested last of all:
The tree beneath whose friendly shade
Thy willing feet had wandered forth.
The very prints those fee; had made
Wheb last they firmly trod the earth.
I thought while countless ages fled.
Thy chair would vacant stand.
ta'wor thy hat. thy book unread,
paced thy footsteps from ':he sand:
Ad widowed in this cheerless world.
The heart that gave its love to thee,
Tro lke the vine whose tendrils curled
More closely round the falling tree.
Oh. dartlng! then for her and thee,
GUh'd quickly forth the falling tears.

And things assume their own real hue.

Only with dear mother and you.

General government; they are loyal to
their state; they are loyal to their
county and to their county site.
Other things being equal, the peo-
ple living in the vionly of Citra, Me-
Intooh, Orange Lake, and all that sec-
tiUo of country would do their shop-
pltg In Ocala rather than in Gaines-
ville, because of the spirit of loyalty
which Is a distinguishing feature in
American citizenship.
The ties of these people to Ocala
are greater; they are identified with
It more; and other things being equal
they would do their shopping-such
as they cannot do at home-in Ocala.
But many of these people not only
do their shopping in Gainesville, but
do their banking there.
Because of the better railway pas-
senger service to that city.
The people residing along that sec-
tion can go to Gainesville, do their
shopping and return the same day.
To come to Ocala they have to re-
main over night, which disarranges
things at home, and means a hotel bill
This arrangement to the north of us
has been going on for yearsand has
been most hurtful to the business in-
terests of Ocala.
Now, the A. C. L. railway has put on
a car service that will make Lake-
land and Tampa more accessible than
Ocala, and the people living to the
south of us will perforce do their trad-
ing away from Ocala, not because they
love It less and these other towns
more, but because Ocala will become
less accessible. t
From our view point it is regretta-



Editor Harris of the Ocala Banner
very sensibly objects to the undue
haste manifested by some editors in
trotting out candidates for future po-
litical contests in this state. He sees
no reason for the untimely introduc-
tion of personal politics for in advance
of the proper date for the opening of
the campaign. "The weather is too
warm for the making of statesmen,"
he says.
The state has just gone through a
peculiarly exacting session of the
legislature. Only last year we were
tormented by election after election.
Next year we are to be confronted
with more elections and a state pro-
hibition campaign, which threatens to
exceed all the campaigns which Flor-
ida has ever experienced, in bitter-
ness. prolonged disturbance and con-
fusion. A campaign for United States
senator will also inject its poisonous
distillation of hatred, envy and deceit
into the veins of Florida the coming
year. Isn't the prospect sufficiently
disheartening. without bringing on
these conditions a year in advance?
Let Florida have at least one year
in which to grow. to further its mate-
rial interests, to strive for higher and
better things than the spoils of office.
It has been a misfortune of the
state that elections have been so nu-
merous. Florida wants less politics
and more progress. It wants fewer
politicians and more good people. It
wants fewer wire-workers and more
hard and honest workers. It wants
less talk and more toil.
The attempt to precipitate a discus-
sion of available candidates for Unit-
ed States senator, for representatives
in congress, is one which should be
discountenanced and discouraged by
the united press of Florida.
If you must agitate, agitate the bus-
iness growth of your town, its attrac-
tions for visitors and settlers and
measures for its advancement.
Such agitation will do good, where
political agitation has a contrary ef-
"Boost" your city, your county and
your state and let politicians pass into
oblivion for awhile.-Tampa Tribune.


The faithful servant in a republic
is said to be a rare thing. but is not
gratitude for loyal service unusual
also? At any rate it moves the heart
to read such a tribute as Dr. Henry
G. Spooner of Stanton, Florida paid
to is "mammy" in the obituary no-
tice which he wrote for her:
"Aunt Tina Jaimson, beloved wife
of Mack Jaamson. of Stanton, Florida,
died early this morning of apoplexy.
Tired as her old feet were she never
failed to do her duty. In washing a
dish or roasting a joint of meat she
took infinite paint, and no horse or
cat or dog left in her charge ever suf-
fered for water. Agnt Tina was of the

Some of the newspapers say, how- to revise the tariff downward or to

ever, that as the matter was up for
settlement a few years ago that it
has now become a dead issue, and no
amount of agitation can galvanize It
into new life..
On the other hand. Editor McCreary
of the Gainesville Sun, who is also a
member of the senate from Alachua
County, says that the question may be
momentarily dead, but the continu-
ance of the capital at Tallahassee can
not be tolerated for two decades long-
There was an agitation some years
ago 'for state division, and we think
that the time is growing ripe for a re-
agitation of the subject.
A railroad official, after a visit to
the east coast of Florida, and a care-
ful study of its conditions and possibil-
ities, made the prediction in the pres-
ence of the editor of the Manufactur-
er's Record of Baltimore, that in the
course of the next ten years that that
section would contain a population
greater than the whole state now pos-
sesses, and if this prediction be any-
where -within the bounds of probabil-
ity, state division ought to become a
live subject for discussion.
Middle and west Florida seem so
remote and so unlike the popular idea
of what the real Florida is, or ought to
be, that there seems little interest in
common between the two remote sec-
tions. West Florida, indeed, seems
more Alabama than Florida, so why
not have two states instead of one?
The Suwannee river could be made
the dividing line. and then the penin-
sular portion, unique and unlike any
other territory that floats under the
flag, could become a state unto itself,
and west and middle Florida, whose
interests are more in common, could

form a state larger than many of the
"other states of the Union.
This paper simply throws out the
suggestion for discussion and would
not favor the proposition unless it
could be shown that such a division
would result beneficially for both sec-


Two articles were printed in the
Ocala Banner the other day, one of
them immediately under the other.
One was a quotation from the Apa-
lachicola Times. cut from the Miami
Metropolis, which is authority fcr ex-
Governor Broward saying: "Somebody
must make the race for United States
senator. As it is the people of Flor-
ida haven't any representative in con-
The other article referred to was a
clipping from the Tampa Tribune,
quoting the Ocala Star, as follows:
"Taliaferro and Fletcher did it. The
duty on pineapples was restored to
the Dingley rate, and lumber was
moved up 50 cents a thousand, or
$1.50, raised on the finance commit-
tee's rate. The lumber men and the
pineapple growers will say 'bully for
F. and T.. We needed the duty in our
business and we don't care a continen-
tal what the democratic national plat-
form disclaimed."'
Now the question naturally arises,
who do Taliaferro and Fletcher. Clark
and Sparkman. represent?
They are protectionists after the
most approved fashion, and they
(three of them at least) are frankly
outspoken in their positions. Are they
supposed to represent the lumber,
pineapple, orange and Sea Island cot-
ton interests alone, or do these inter-
ests comprehend the people of the
And are we perfectly agreed that
this is what we send them to congress
for? All right; let it go at that. But
stick a pin there. We deceive our-
selves and the truth is not in us.
Florida is republican, simply because

Senator Taliaferro of Florida has w
succeeded in getting a tariff on pine- st
pples raised. He did it against the D
position of Senator Aldrich, at least h
kldrich appeared to oppose' it. This f
is how Taliaferro did it. o01
Not long before the pineapple
schedule came up he sent from Flor- tI
da a lot of the finest pineapples he m
would find. He sent two to each sen- .
tor, and he put an exhibit of pine- w
pples in the cloakrooms. He demon- 10

revise it upward. What we are p;cdg-
ed to is a revision, and I suppose we
are here to revise in view of the in-
terests of the whole country. It it is
wise to reduce rates, then reduce
them. Ifit is wiser to give greater
protection then we should do that, and
if it is wise to keep them as they are
then that should be done."
This has a fine, frank manly
sound, but we are forced by it to the
conclusion that the statesman and
scholar from Massachusetts is disin-
genous. Not only was the tariff
plank in the republican platform
adopted because of the pressure for a
revision downward, but the agitation
for a downward change in certain
schedules was particularly loud in the
senator's own state. Not a person in
the entire country could have believ-
ed last June that the plank was the
result of a demand for increased pro-
tection. The standpatters were will-
ing to stand right where they were, to
let well enough alone, as some of
them expressed it. That was the
state of affairs when the convention
said: "The republican party declares
unequivocally for a revision of the
tariff by a special session of con-
gress immediately following the inau-
guration of the next president, and
commends the. steps already taken to
this end in the work assigned to the
appropriate committees of congress."
There was to be a special session not
to re-enact the Dingley law, but to
make modifications in that law owing
to public dissatisfaction over its
schedules, and the complaints were
practically all of one kind and were
directed against excessive rates.
It is true that a principle of revis-
ion was announced and that under
it increases might be made, but the
tariff plank itself speaks for preserv-
ing "without excessive duties" a se-
curity against foreign competition, I

Prof. George Burnam Foster, one eC
the professors in the University of
Chicago, "wrote a book"-a bad thing
to do-and that book has caused his
expulsion from the Baptist ministry.
Following are some of the objec-
tionable passages which the more or-
thodox Baptists pronounce heretical.
"Theology is beginning to think of
religion and of God after the analogy
of the thought of consciousness and of
the soul as cherished by the psychol-
ogist."-P. 13.
"I have the impression that when
the collective consciousness becomes
thoroughly habituated to modern sci-
ence our words, soul and body, as well
as matter and spirit, will drop out of
our language. * There is no
such thing as a self-dependent soul
freely active or interactive within an
organism we call the body, just as
similarly there is no self-dependent
soul freely active or interactive with-
in that larger body which we call the
cosmos. All this is a survival of prim-
itive animism, which populated the
whole world with spirits, demons and
hobgoblins. * I mean that
soul and body are not two beings con-
fronting each other as independent
and interoperative, but that they are
one being giving account of itself in a
two-fold manner."-P. 21.
"Nowhere is there such a thing as
creation out of nothing. * *
'God' works to bring things to pass-
works hard and ploddingly as we do,
aye, experiences need and pain and
failure in work, as we do. * *
Strictly speaking, he makes nothing,
but lets things grow. Certainly he
lets man grow."-Pp. 50, 51.
"The great trouble with us is that
our God is no longer ours. He is the
church's. We inherited him. He is
in no dwelling place that we have I
built. We have him only by tradi-
tion."-P. 56.
"Modern experience would not cre-
ate the Trinity-God of the church any t
more than it would create the Mes- c
siah of the primitive Christian com- t
unity. Your religiousness is not a
hat you have a God, it is your God- n
making capacity. And in a world i
trewn with dead gods the question is t
whether modern humanity has. like t
he ancient, that religious need and o
capacity from which the bright con- r
ummate flower of the divine can i
row."-P. 57. f
"It was not Ingersoll, but Feuer- a
ach, in 1S46, nay, in substance it was T
Lucretius long ago., and, earlier still, t:
Kenophanes, who said that the great t;
discovery of this generation was not b
hat God made man in his own image, n
ut that man made God in his (man's)
mage. Psychologically speaking, that
s quite true."-P. 66. n

ernal authority, the independents, ap- n
dealing to the internal authority of s

spirit to the competency of the soul fl

-e ore1 our people have come
to tMe 4Y that celebrates patriotism
-d the love of liberty. For thought.
md men who are familiar with the
rise of liberty, the Fourth of July is
stUll the golden day in the calendar of
tee institution. This high day of
the republic holds many associations
with the two Adams, with Hamilton
aud Jeferson with Madison and
Washington. and the holiday has be-
coae an urn that overflows with sa-
cred qnd perfumed treasure. During
the first fifty years of the republic
the Fourth of July was the one out-
standing day, for Thanksgiving Day
had not yet been made universal. Dec-
oration Day and Labor Day and the
birthday of Lincoln had not yet been
born. in Athens on the high day of
the city the citizens arrayed tLem-
selves in white robes, and wore gir-
dies of blue. standing for civic purity.
Cleaning themselves from all grime,
the men went forth carrying palm
bIanches, the marching children car-
ried flowers, the maids and matrons
chanted hymns, the priests swung to
and fro the censor filled with incense.
When the procession, representing the
strength and beauty of Athens, came
to the votive altar of the Goddess
Athenae, they covered the white mar-
ble with flowers and perfumed boughs.
Not otherwise did Daniel Webster,
with reverence and increasing solemn-
ity, anticipate the approach of the
a FPourth of July. To the very last the
thought of independence day suffused
his eyes with tears and filled him
with a tumult of noble emotions. And
for all citizens of the republic today.
this approaching day of patriotism
and liberty should stir civic pride, the
love of country. and the renewal of
dedication of life and gifts to the
cause of the republic, that represents
today the highest hope of all the pe.-
ple of the earth.
The Republic No Longer an Experi-
Today the president and the repub.
lic occupy the center ot the world's
For years the world has risen up
and retired with the thought of the
republic as arbiter and friend of two
warring nations. Just now our c un-
try looms large in the world's affairs.
If the president's figure rises above
the other nation's rulers, it is because
he stands upon the shoulders of Lreat
countrymen who are supported by a
great country. Gone forever is the
thought that the republic is an experi-
ment! "What do you think about free
institutions and democracy?" exclaims
Carlyle. "I think that America is a
place where a few wise men discuss
problems and many fools settle them."
The English premier in 1S50 gave us
t;irty nore years, yet. what nation has
growth and prospered more? Govern-
m-n' is for the protection of life, lrop-
<-rt.. family reputation and liberty.
But surely there never has been an
h.ur nu the history of the republic
s htn the millions were so happy or
HO pr(%-perous. or when they possessed
iu s large a measure their political
and industrial rights, their social and
ie Ic rights. What! Democracy an
t-xpriment? It is the other forms of
government that are experimental.
Autocracy is the government of one:

the limited monarchy is the govern-
ment by the few; democracy is the
government by the many. Today au-
tocracy is experimental; witness Rus-
sla-the government may fall any day.
Limited government and the aristocra-
cy aro experimental. Witness Spain
and Austria- for them no statesman
knows what a year may bring forth.
A monarchy is a battelship that can
be sunk wtth a single bombshell. The
republic is a raft and a dozen bomb-
shells through each leg of the raft
would not sink the whole. It is easy
to destroy a government of but one
ruler. It is impossible to destroy a
government where all the millions
are rulers. The most conservative
and prudent and stable government is
the government of all by all and for
all. History is full of the ruins of all
the other forms of government. The
old monarchies already seem like an-
cket oaks, rotted out at the heart, and
so ma knows what storm will bring
them crashla down. At last the re-
public is avenged. She might even
have the right to turn her face toward
the east, and say to Russia. Austria
and Germany what once they said to
au: "I give YoU rty years." After
your Niagara. w t? Yours is a coun-
try where wise iness men and
k holars discuss problems. and one
feebW-minded r decides them.

'"th Nt ad Sappbo sang, was a day
when every citizen was a patriot, sin-
eme, heroic, ready to die for his coun-
try. The great epoch of art and Leau-
ty and liberty for Florence was the
era when patriotism, like a mighty
flood, swept over Italy. The golden
age for little Switzerland, with its
brilliant past for brave lIttle Holland,
for glorious old England, was the age
when patriotism was at its best. And
what our land needs, above all else,
after a revival of ethics a& righteous-
ness, is a revival of patriotism and
love of country. It is given to citizens
of other nations to exult and cry:
"This is mine own, my native land!"
But how much more to Americans! Is
it material wealth? LiAt up your eyes
and look out upon these lakes and riv-
ers. the vineyards and orchards, the
pastures and meadows, the herds and
flocks. What wealth we already l.ave
and what wealth exceeding more is to
be ours? Is it a great history that
strengthens patriotism? Think of
the Pilgrim Fathers, the heroic age in
the country's history, the scenes at
Bunker Hill and at Valley Forge. The
victory for independence. Webster's
struggle for liberty and union, states
one and inseparable; think of the vic-
tory for the slave-the immigrant; of
the schools for children, the hospit-
als. the philanthropies, the reforms,
the laws. Think of these halls of sci-
ence, the galleries of art, the chap-
els, the libraries, the churches, with
their lofty towers. Is it a noble an-
cestor? Ah, the fathers and founders
stained with their life-blood this ban-
ner of liberty, and made bright these
stars on the sky of hope: The fath-
ers have made vows for us. Our dead
heroes have given pledges for us and
our children. Ours these states, ours
the declaration of liberty, ours the
constitution. ours the poets, the ora-
tors. the statesmen, the soldiers. The
republic is a storehouse, filled with
all the treasures of the past. There-
fore. on this high day of liberty, let
us resolve henceforth to live four our
country and its institutions, that the
republic may become the guide of all
the world and 'the teacher of all na-
tions ii, the art of self-government and
the principles of liberty.--G. H. R.. in

Broward's activities at the capitol
during the session may or may not
have had something to do with his
recent announcement that he would
be a candidate for Taliaferro's seat










Josephus Daniels, editor of the Ra-
leigh (N. C.) News and Observer,
prints in his paper this editorial:
Two of the ablest amen In Amer-
ica are Colonel Henry Watterson of
Kentucky, and Senator Bailey of Tex-
as. Mr. Bailey is easily the first con-
stitutional lawyer in the senate, and
Mr. Watterson is easily the foremost
American editor.
Upon a question of constitutional
law, Mr. Bailey's opinion would be en-
titled to first place but upon the ques-
tion of the democratic principle of
the tariff, since the retirement of Jno.
G. Carlisle and William R. Morrison,
no man !s to be regarded as being so
capable of stating the true democrat-
ic principle upon the tariff as Colonel
Watterson. He wrote the platform
upon which Mr. Tilden was elected to
the presidency and if he did not
write the platform on which Mr.
Cleveland was elected in 1892, he in-
spired it and was instrumental ia se-
curing its adoption, when Mr. Whit-
ney and others of Mr. Cleveland's
friends were trying to get a "straddle"
plank in the 1892 platform.
A few days ago after Senator Bailey
had voted in the senate against free
lumber and free iron ore and cast oth-
er votes that pleased Mr. Aldrich and
the other high priests of protection,
Colonel Watterson wrote the follow-
ing brief paragraph i. this paper:
"Senator Bailey, demanding that
the magnates of the steel trust be put
in jail, votes to put them in palaces
by voting for a tariff on iron ore and
against the old democratic doctrine
of free raw materials."
The next day Mr. Bailey, in the
senate, quoted the above statement by
Mr. Watterson, and said:
"The old democratic doctrine of
free raw materials! How old? Old
enough, thank God, to have perished
before this day; and yet not so old as
that it ever received the endorsement
of the democratic fathers. It was in
a season of madness and folly pro-
claimed as a democratic doctrine; but
it has long since been rejected as a
democratic heresy."
And to this reply Colonel Watter-
son's C, urier-Journal answers as fol-
"It is old enough to have been for-

When it comes to the figures which
represent for the current year the
phenomenal resources of the Ameri-
can farm, it is too much like dealing
with the distances ot the fixed stars.
The numerical terms in which the
tabulated results of the year's induaf
try are expressed are simply beyond
the grasp of the human intellect.
We thank Secretary Wilson for tell-
ing us that the total value of all the
farm products of the United States is
in round numbers $7,778,000,000.
But how much is this?
At the seashore we. gaze upon an
expanse of water which reaches to
the utmost verges of the horizon. But
the field of vision which we thus
sweep is only a fraction of "old
ocean's gray and melancholy waste."
The New York World endeavors to
simplify this problem in higher mathe-
matics by telling us how much house
rent could be paid with the huge sum
in question.
This is the process of reduction:
If the total value of the year's farm
crop were put into the hands of one
man he could pay house rent at the
rate of $20 per month for 32,000,000
years-a period of time 500,000 great-
er than the age of the earth, accord-
ing to the biblical reckoning.
We may be perhaps a step nearer
the goal. But who, except the Rocke-
fellers and the Carnegies and the Van-
derbilts, has any conception of the
multiples which still remain? The av-
erage man may follow us when we
speak of thousands; but when we be-
gin to annex additional ciphers te is
lost. Millions and billions are to him
quantities equally incomprehensible-
the synonyms of measureless infini-
But there are other figures in the
secretary's report which will enable
us by a process of division to simpli-
fy the problem still further.
For example, he says that the num-
ber of separate farms in the United
States at the present time is estimat-
ed at 4,800,000.
And if this number is divided into

twice, which has been the corner stone
upon which the government was
fmuede, and most be mvintaIned or
perish, it is time for democrats to pro-
tet. Senator Aldrich of Rhode Is-
land, who is supposed by many to
know more about tariffs than any oth-

er senator, ignoring other portions of
the country, works with a zeal and
cunning in the interests of eastern
manufacturers, and has succeeded in
fixing up the most barbarous act that
has ever disgraced a nation. It will
not increase the revenues, but will
enable the rich manufacturing trusts
to sell their goods at higher prices,
because the goods that would pay a
revenue to the government will be
shut out. Already I notice that men's
suits have been advanced from $25 to
$35 in the east, and Chicago and oth-
er western cities stand ready to fall
in line; but this is only one schedule
out of thousands. I never expected
the republicans to modify or reduce
the tariff, but it is certainly humiliat-
ing to see democrats, and especially
southern democrats, join han us with
the rascals in robber schemes, repul-
sive to many republican congressmen.
Verily, politics make strange bed-fel-
lows. LaFollette, Cummins, Doliver,
Beevridge and a few other republi-
can senators, ashamed of their com-
rades, have boldly thrown off the hy-
pocritical republican covering and ta-
ken to the virtuous sheets of democra-
cy. Could the republican party afford
to lose these shining lights they would
be read out of the party. I was sur-
prised to see that Senator. Tillman
tried to tax tea 10 cents per pound for
the benefit of the Carolina growers of
the herb, but after all there is some
sense in that if the purpose if to in-
crease the revenue, and not merely
to increase profits to growers, for im-
ports would continue just the same.
Carolina teas are better than the im-
ported, and find sale to those whi can
afford to pay the difference in cost,
but so long as cheap labor is not toler-
ated here this country can never com-
pete with China and Japan in tea cul-
ture. The tax on net earnings of cor-
porations as proposed by President
Taft and supported by Senator Al-
drich, is a nice little joker that will
cause & smile from the corporations
who will find no difficulty in trans-
ferring the burden, with profits added,
to the consumer. Mr. Aldrich favors
the bill because it is intended to take
the place of an income tax, which is
the most just of any scheme of taxa-
tion ever emanating from the brain
of man. The individual who adds mil-
lions each year to his fortune can
well afford to give back a small pit-
tance of his gain to the public or the
people that have, by patronage or
special legislation, enabled him or her
to increase their wealth, but he who,
though struggling honestly against
high prices and the misfortunes that
befall many should not be compelled
to deprive himself and family of the
necessities of a comfortable living in

order to provide the money to pay the
tax required to prevent his humble
home from passing into the hands of
tax sharks. Volumes might be 'writ-
ten upon the injustice of our laws, ex-
cusable only that they are better than
some, or that they might be worse.

Dr. W. H. Powers a deId. No more shall we see his smil-
Ing tace amongst us. I know that those who leave us here are
often soon forgotten by the multitudes passing to and fro, and
the affairs of this old world go on as though the departed ones
played no important part In the great drama of life, which is
being enacted before us. The dropping out of the part they
played causes no break in the endless play, as from day to day
the curtain rises and falls. Only the few whose hearts are very
sore, whose love and attachments' were strong, keep green the
memory of the loved ones gone, and are oppressed with a weary
longing, and the soul cries out:

"0, for the touch of a vanished hand,
And the sound of a voice that is still."

Even with these, soon, too soon, Time, the great soother,
"heals the bruised heart and quenches the smoking flax," and
after a while the sad suggestions of the vacant chair, or the pic-
ture on the wall, grow less and less vivid as the ceaseless years
roll on. 'Tis then when another fruitful bough. is broken and
falls to the ground close to us, that memory is awakened and
presents to our view the dear, loved dead, and brings back our
grief afresh, and the splendid parts they played. We miss them
again anew, and realize how much we loved them, when such
recurring events move an unseen band, which strikes the sleep-
ing chord and wakes again our grief and sorrow, long mellowed
by time.
So the passing of Dr. Powers has touched the chord and
awakened the sleeping notes in my own heart and memory, and
brings back to me the strong attachment and warm friendship
which bound Dr. Powers and my own Harry so closely together.
Well do 1 recall-I never wish and never can forget-the last
scene betweenp them. It was sunset, and the last my boy ever
saw. Dr. ]owers was with bim-not on a professional call. but
as a friend-and was about to bid him good-bye, and said: "Har-
ry, if imperative duty did not oall me away, I would stay with
you tonight." Harry replied: "Don't let me keep you from where
duty calls you. You can do me no good, doctor, for I won't be
here many hogrs longer." The doctor replied: "Well, Harry, we
won't be parted long; I will soon follow you." And, with a long,
warm, last hand-clasp and eyes dimmed with tears, they parted
for the last time.
The scene was pathetic and photographed on the mind, and
it all came back today! And true it is, "the good die young.
while those whose hearts are dry as summer's dust, burn to the
socket." Dr. Powers died young, but in the few years be lived
among us he left his impress for good upon the community, and
won his way to the hearts of the people.
And thus it is that a great sorrow has fallen upon the people
of this city. From every heart and home comes forth the voice
of lamentation, and into those hearts and homes may there enter
the blessed consolations which God alone can give! It is a bitter
experience, thus to lose one already grown so efficient, so full
of the glorious promise of what was to be in the maturity of his
powers. So true, so upright, so manly, with the eyes of the peo-
ple upon him-and now he lies beneath the sod. God help us,
and God help those whose hearts are more sorely wrenched than
mine. 0, pitying heavens! we lift up our hands to you. Drop
down the dews of your consolation. 0, merciful God, the God
of all comfort, love and mercy, come now and bind up these
bruised hearts, and help them to bear this bitter, bitter sorrow;
come, guide and uphold those who strive to be brave and calm
as they go forth along life's pathway with tottering steps!

"Leave him to God;
Trust him to the Hand that made him.
The jewels we mourn here are hoarded
Where the moth and the rust cannot come."

Let us remember him as one who had already borne

"Fruits of a genial morn and glorious noon,
The deathless part of him who died too soon."

Rev. Geo. Hendree Harrison has
tendered his resignation as rector of
Grace Episcopal church, and will take
up work in Jacksonville in a few
weeks. Mr. Harrison's resignation
was regretfully accepted at a special
meeting of the vestry on Tuesday af-
His departure will cause regret, not
only by the members of Mr. H&rri-
son's church, but also by many peo-
ple in Ocala outside-of his congrega-
tion, who have learned to know and
esteem him.
Mr. Harrison's connection with
Grace church has been one of entire
harmony with his vestry and congre-
gation, and his administration of the
affairs of the parish has resulted in
the accomplishing of much good and
substantial work, which will long
stand as a testimonial to his faithful
and efficient labors.
His new duties will be of a mission-
ary character, and as he is peculiarly
adapted to work of this kind there
is ne doubt but that he will be as suc-
cessful in Jacksonville as he has been
in Qcala.
It is a matter of regret that Grace
church and Ocala should lose such a
good rector and citizen, but it is a
source of gratification to Mr. Harri-
son's friends to know that he has
been selected for a work of as much
importance as that to which he has
been called.


Last Saturday's issue of the Jack-
sonville Coat of Arms had the follow-
ing beautiful notice of the late Dr. W.
H. Powers of this city, whose death
occurred the day following the issue
of the Coat of Arms:
"Jacksonville people who knew and
esteemed the late Mr. Stephen Pow-
ers, prominently connected with the
Times-Union for so many years, will
be sorry to learn of the continued and
serious illness of his son, Dr. W. H.
Powers, of Ocala, one of the best
known young physicians in Florida,
and a leader in the profession at his
home city, Ocala.
"Dr. Powers married Miss Violet
Harris, the second daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Harris of Ocala, and
their home has been one of the nwost
popular social centers of the city.
Their popularity is not confined to
Ocala, for they have friends every-
where. especially all over Florida.
The news of Dr. Poweds' continued
illness will be deeply regretted."


When eHnry M. Flagler returned
from his winter's sojourn in* souther
Florida to New York, says the Cincin-
nati Enquirer, his friends In adl sin-
cerity congratulated him upon his ap-
pearance of perfect health. Seventy-
nine years, a mult-mi-Uokmare before
he was fifty, he undertook some fif-
teen years ago to do all along the eat
.ocat of' Florida what the fode ofat
the Plant' system of railways did Ia
the western half of Florida. It was
characteristic of Mr. Flagler that he
should undertake the cob trUetl of
a railway system entirely with hi
own means.
It was presumed that th apparset
perfect health w bhich M, ler
brought back from Florida mlght In
part be due to ae practical COmpl
tioa of that unique and eztr"eri"naw-
railway system, extending ke
tic ramparts or a massive se -W
around the souf coast of Florida to
Key West. As this coAtMUtIen ls

As reported before, there were as

from any section in Florida, and with-
to a radius of a mile square east of
Stanton and Weirsdale, are 250 acres
of identically the same kind of soil
that produced these fine melons. The
land is cleared and most of it has suf-

against cattle. The ground has not

Any preacher who serves the Oeala
district ought to be a happy man, for
he has plenty of work, in a fine coun-
try, among a most excellent people.
The second round of quarterly meet-
ings is nearly finished, and I am get-
ting somewhat acquainted with the
field and the workers.
The Country
The district embraces all or a part
of the counties of Marion, Alachua,
Putnam, Bradford, Citrus, Levy, Sum-
ter and Lake. Some of the best farm-
ing lands are in this section. The
crops this year are very good. Large
quantities of cabbage, lettuce, water-
melons and other vegetables have
been shipped, and brought good pric-
es. I never saw finer fields of corn
than are now growing throughout this
section. Many beautiful orange groves
are seen around the numerous lakes
and the yield of golden fruit Is con-
stantly increasing.
Our Church
We have in the district 25 pastors,
S4 churches, 52 Sunday schools, 18
Epworth Leagues and 4500 chIrch
members. What a golden opportuni-
ty is curs to work for the moral and
religious welfare of the people. Our
preachers are doing faithful work.
while many noble laymen and godly
women are doing their part.
There have been no widespread re-
vivals this year, but nearly every pas-
tor has had some additions on pro-
fession of faith, either in protracted
meetings or in regular service.
Our Young People
Every intelligent Christian must
know that our greatest field of labor
is among the children and young peo-
ple. Perhaps the best Sunday school
in the district is at Ocala. Dr. lzlar
is a wide-awake, progressive superin-
tendent, and the pastor. Rev. R. H.
Barnett. keeps in close touch with
the school. The Junior League here.
under the management of Mrs. M. M1.
Little, is one of the very best. Other
schools and leagues are doing good
work, but these are worthy of ruch

"Patriotism That Counts" Is the
subject of the Endeavor meetings on
July 4th. This should be a most help-
ful topic for every society, as we all
want to be the kind of Christians that
count in patriotism, but alas! some of
us may not care enough to make de-
cisive action toward such a result,
and this meeting in July, 1909, should
bring us real and lasting ambition.
From "The Advance" is made the fol-
lowing quotation, worthy of being
read and remembered: "Patriotism
that counts is that sort which shams
the fight for decency, the square deal,
and human uplift. It may wear no un-
iform and carry no gun, but it will be
helping the under man, and standing
for righteous government. The world
expects every Endeavorer to under-
stand the fight and to come to help.
Mrs. H. W. Bruce, state Junior su-
perintendent, is spending a few weeks
at 1908 Laura street, Jacksonville.
This gives her the welcomed opportu-
nity of meeting the foremost leaders
in the metropolis.
Miss Minnie E. Neal asks each mem-
ber of young people's societies on July
4th to give 10 cents toward meeting
the expense of the "traveling alcohol
exhibit," which will form a part of
the temperance campaign that is be-
ing planned. We would like to sug-
gest thet Endeavorers come to the
prayer meeting prepared for a gener-
ous collection, and after our state
song, "Florida for Christ," is sung,
there will be a silver offering, which
on Monday is forwarded to Mrs.
George Doig. Gainesville, treasurer of
the W. C. T. U. of Florida. If this is
not done on July 4th, seven days la-
ter will compensate.
Pleasant words have recently reach-
ed this office from Editor Amos R.

There are six young women among
the district secretaries and two young
nun. One of the latter, Mr. W. L.
Lewis, has lately removed from Clar-
cona to Kissimmee, the town in which
his district president. Mrs. Miller. re-

thing that could not be said of n:any

The Juniors had a pleasant banner
waving when the Sunday school schol-

them, had their picnic at Interlachen
this spring. The Junior banner was
of purple and gold bunting, showing
the royal purple of the state colors
for a background, upon which was the
word,. "Welc nme." in yellow. It was
draped between two great live caks
near the village depot, across the
street leading to the picnic ground.

friends, are planning to entertain the

crease the revenue, and not merely
to increase profits to growers, for im-
ports woau continue just the same.
Carolina teas are better than the im-
ported, and find sale to those wh. can
afford to pay the difference in cost,
but so long as cheap labor Is not toler-
ated here this country can never com-
pete with China and Japan in tea cul-
ture. The tax on net earnings of cor-
porations as proposed by President
Taft and supported by Senator Al-
drich. is a nice little joker that will
cause k smile from the corporations
who will find no difficulty in trans-
ferring the burden, with profits added,
to the consumer. Mr. Aldrich favors
the bill because it is intended to take
the place of an income tax, which is
the most just of any scheme of taxa-
tion ever emanating from the brain
of man. The individual who adds mil-
lions each year to his fortune can
well afford to give back a small pit-
tance of his gain to the public or the
people that have, by patronage or
special legislation, enabled him or her
to increase their wealth, but he who,
though struggling honestly against
high prices and the misfortunes that
befall many should not be compelled
to deprive himself and family of the
necessities of a comfortable living in
order to provide the money to pay the
tax required to prevent his humble
home from passing into the hands of
tax sharks. Volumes might be vrit-
ten upon the injustice of our laws, ex-
cuamble only that they are better than
some, or that they might be worse.

Rev. Geo. Hendree Harrison has
tendered his resignation as rector of
Grace Episcopal church, and will take
up work in Jacksonville in a few
weeks. Mr. Harrison's resignation
was regretfully accepted at a special
meeting of the vestry on Tuesday af-
His departure will cause regret, not
only by the members of Mr. H&rri-
son's church, but also by many peo-
ple in Ocala outside of his congrega-
tion, who have learned to know and
esteem him.

Even with these, soon, too soon, Time, the great soother,
"heals the bruised heart and quenches the smoking flax," and
after a while the sad suggestions of the vacant chair, or the pic-
ture on the wall, grow less and less vivid as the ceaseless years
roll on. 'Tis then when another fruitful bough. is broken and
falls to the ground close to us, that memory is awakened and
presents to our view the dear, loved dead, and brings back our
grief afresh, and the splendid parts they played. We miss them
again anew, and realize how much we loved them, when such
recurring events move an unseen band, which strikes the sleep-
ing chord and wakes again our grief and sorrow, long mellowed
by time.
So the passing of Dr. Powers has touched the chord and
awakened the sleeping notes in my own heart and memory, and
brings back to me the strong attachment and warm friendship
which bound Dr. Powers and my own Harry so closely together.
Well do 4 recall-I never wish and never can forget-the last
scene between them. It was sunset, and the last my boy ever
saw. Dr. lowers was with him-not on a professional call, but
as a friend-and was about to bid him good-bye, and said: "Har-
ry, if imperative duty did not eall me away, I would stay with
you tonight" Harry replied: "Don't let me keep you from where
duty calls you. You can do me no good, doctor, for I won't be
here many hours longer." The doctor replied: "Well, Harry, we
won't be parted long; I will soon follow you." And, with a long,
warm, last hand-clasp and eyes dimmed with tears, they parted
for the last time.
The scene was pathetic and photographed on the mind, and
it all came back today! And true it is, "the good die young,
while those whose hearts are dry as summer's dust, burn to the
socket." Dr. Powers died young, but in the few years be lived
among us he left his impress for good upon the community, and
won his way to the hearts of the people.
And thus it is that a great sorrow has fallen upon the people
of this city. From every heart and home comes forth the voice
of lamentation, and into those hearts and homes may there enter
the blessed consolations which God alone can give! It is a bitter
experience, thus to lose one already grown so efficient, so full
of the glorious promise of what was to be in the maturity of his
powers. So true, so upright, so manly, with the eyes of the peo-
ple upon him-and now he lies beneath the sod. God help us,
and God help those whose hearts are more sorely wrenched than
mine. 0, pitying heavens! we lift up our hands to you. Drop
down the dews of your consolation. 0, merciful God, the God
of all comfort, love and mercy, come now and bind up these
bruised hearts, and help them to bear this bitter, bitter sorrow;
come, guide and uphold those who strive to be brave and calm
as they go forth along life's pathway with tottering steps!

Last Saturday's issue of the Jack-
sonville Coat of Arms had the follow-
ing beautiful notice of the late Dr. W.
H. Powers of this city, whose death
occurred the day following the issue
of the Coat of Arms:
"Jacksonville people who knew and
esteemed the late Mr. Stephen Pow-
ers, prominently connected with the
Times-Union for so many years, will
be sorry to learn of the continued and
serious illness of his son, Dr. W. H.
Powers, of Ocala, one of the best
known young physicians in Florida,
and a leader in the profession at his
home city, Ocala.
"Dr. Powers married Miss Violet
Harris, the second daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Harris of Ocala, and
their home has been one of the ntost
popular social centers of the city.
Their popularity is not confined to
Ocala, for they have friends every-
where. especially all over Florida.
The news of Dr. Poweds' continued
illness will be deeply regretted."


When eHury M. Flagler returned
from his winter's sojourn in*southera
Florida to New York, says the Cincin-
nati Enquirer, his friends in all sin-
cerity congratulated him upon his ap-
pearance of perfect health. Seventy-
nine years, a multi-milllonaire before
he was fifty, he undertook some if-
teen years ago to do an along the east

characteristic of Mr. Flagler that he

It was presumed that the apart

brought back from Florda might in

Mr. Harrison's connection with
Grace church has been one of entire
harmony with his vestry and congre
gation, and his administration of the
affairs of the parish has resulted in
the accomplishing of much good and
substantial work, which will long
stand as a testimonial to his faithful
and efficient labors.
His new duties will be of a mission-
ary character, and as he is peculiarly
adapted to work of this kind there
is no doubt but that he will be as suc-
cessful in Jacksonville as he has been
in Ocala.
It is a matter of regret that Grace
church and Ocala should lose such a
good rector and citizen, but it is a
source of gratification to Mr. Harri-
son's friends to know that he has
been selected for a work of as much
importance as that to which he has

Dr. W. H. Powers is degd. No more shall we see his smil-
IXg fee amongst us. I know that those who leave us here are
often seem forgotten by the multitudes passing to and fro, and
the affairs of this old world go on as though the departed ones
played no important part in the great drama of life, which is
being enacted before us. The dropping out of the part they
played causes no break in the endless play, as from day to day
the curtain rises and falls. Only the few whose hearts are very
sore, whose love and attachments' were strong, keep green the
memory of the loved ones gone, and are oppressed with a weary
longing, and the soul cries out:

Preclnet No. i9 is on the eve of an
Important election, which has more to
do with this section than a general
state or national election has.
*Vrybody mostly has fault to find
with ouar legislators, but there is no
particular kick coming from this see-
tim. as we made but one request, and
or prayers were answered, agreeably
to a majority of the voters of this
precact, to have an act passed and
a law enacted to regulate and grant
saMd orecinct the privilege and tight.
to hold an election to decide whether
hbgs shall be allowed to run at large
or not in this precinct.
The petition, with three-fourths of
the qualled voters' names, is ready
to be presented to the county com-
sso to set a day to settle this
matter, at least for four years, and
juging from the talk one hears, the
rsaor-ack has to go or be kept in-
closed by owner.
As reported before, there were as
fte melons shipped from Stanton as
from any section in Florida, and with-
S n a radius of a mile square east of
Stanton and Weirsdale, are 250 acres
of Identically the same kind of soil
that produced these fine melons. The
land is cleared and most of it has suf-
Scient wire on the ground to protect
against cattle. The ground has not
been in cultivation since the freeze
of fourteen years ago, which is dou-
ble the time considered necessary be-
tween crops to be raised successfully
on the same ground.
If It had not been for the few long-
snouted hogs running at large, con-
siderable of this land would have been
planted in melons and other crops
this year, but the expense to protect
against hogs is too great, so on ac-
count of $25 worth of hogs at full val-
ue. those who did plant had to go to
$300 expense to keep out $25 worth of
hogs, and besides kept a couple of
thousand dollars from finding their
way to this neighborhood.
There is some reason and excuse
for a man owning a lot of land from
which he cannot realize anything oth-
erwise. but those mostly having hogs
running at large are those who own
no real estate, pay no taxes, even
some no poll tax. Such parties may
have a legal sight, but no moral right,
to annoy their neighbors. And the
man with land is able to fence in his
stock, and only a traction of the ex-
pense will be incurred as by making
a dozen neighbors each doing the
samae amount of fencing to protect
against his "rooters."
Anm, as a general thing, those who
raiseo melons are parties that prp)ba-
bly own only an old horse, plow and
a couple of hoes. whereas, a man who


Any preacher who serves the Ocala
district ought to be a happy man, for
he has plenty of work, in a fine coun-
try, among a most excellent people.
The second round of quarterly meet-
ings is nearly finished, and I am get-
ting somewhat acquainted with the
field and the workers.
The Country
The district embraces all or a part
of the counties of Marion, Alachua,
Putnam, Bradford, Citrus, Levy, Sum-
ter and Lake. Some of the best farm-
ing lands are in this section." The
crops this year are very good. Large
quantities of cabbage, lettuce, water-
melons and other vegetables have
been shipped, and brought good pric-
es. I never saw finer fields of corn
than are now growing throughout this
section. Many beautiful orange groves
are seen around the numerous lakes
and the yield of golden fruit is con-
stantly increasing.
Our Church
We have in the district 25 pastors,
84 churches, 52 Sunday schools, 18
Epwor-th Leagues and 4500 church
members. What a golden opportuni-
ty is curs to work for the moral and
religious welfare of the people. Our
preachers are doing faithful work,
while many noble laymen and godly
women are doing their part.
There have been no widespread re-
vivals this year, but nearly every pas-
tor has had some additions on pro-
fession of faith, either in protracted
meetings or in regular service.
Our Young People
Every intelligent Christian must
know that our greatest field of labor
is among the children and young peo-
ple. Perhaps the best Sunday school
in the district is at Ocala. Dr. Izlar
is a wide-awake, progressive superin-
tendent, and the pastor. Rev. R. H.
Barnett. keeps in close touch with
the school. The Junior League here.
under th~management of Mrs. M. M.
Little, is ne of the very best. Other
schools and leagues are doing good
work, but these are worthy of iauch
The Laymen's Movement
Brother Wm. Himes of Bushnell
was elected district leader at Mican-
opy. We are expecting great things
of him in this office for he is one of
our very best laymen. A list of load-
ers will be sent to Brother Himes as
soon as they can be elected. If the
laymen raise that thousand dollars
for West Tampa Cuban Mission they
will have to bestir themselves. It
can be done. and I hope they will
push it to success.
Conference Collections
Most of our pastors are making
good progress on the collections and
will get the full assessments. A few
of them may fail for lack of the faith
that starts early and works by love.
A preacher once told me that the first
thing he did in order to raise his col-
lections was to get religion. When
I hear a preacher lamenting over his
ability to get up his collections I won-
der how much he has prayed over the
matter. Thomas Editson has said ':h.t
genius was one part insp nd
nine parts perspiration. That is what
it requires to raise these collections.
The latter part of last year a good-
ly number of the people at Reddick

If the no-hog side carries the day
the probabilities are that there will
be a company or combine formed to
put onu several hundred acres of this
land in melons and cantaloupes.
There will be a chance for some of
those bankers, extensive and inten-
sive farmers and all round business
men to invest some of their surplus
cash ac this year's crop.

first quarterly meeting, and paid more
on pastor's support in three months
than they had paid the whole year
before they began to tithe. No trou-
ble about finances when we follow
God's plan of supporting the church.
One of the best things done at our
district conference was the decision
to buy a gospel tent for mission v ork
in the district. It will cost $150, and
we have $35 contributed. Who will
help us buy it? We need it now to
hold meetings in this summer. Send
your dollar or five dollars to Rev. R.
H. Barnett.
One of my happiest hours this year
was when I read in the last Advocate
about the dedication of the new
church at Baracoa. Cuba. Bro. Riera,
the consecrated pastor, is the mission-
ary supported by our district. What

"Patriotism That Counts" is the
subject of the Endeavor meetings on
July 4th. This should be a most help-
ful topic for every society, as we all
want to be the kind of Christians that
count in patriotism, but alas! some of
us may not care enough to make de-
cisive action toward such a result,
and this meeting in July, 1909, should
bring us real and lasting ambition.
From "The Advance" is made the fol-
lowing quotation, worthy of being
read and remembered: "Patriotism
that counts is that sort which shams
the fight for decency, the square deal,
and human uplift. It may wear no un-
iform and carry no gun, but it will be
helping the under man, and standing
for righteous government. The world
expects every Endeavorer to under-
stand the fight and to come to help.
Mrs. H. W. Bruce, state Junior su-
perintendent, is spending a few weeks
at 1908 Laura street, Jacksonville.
This gives her the welcomed opportu-
nity of meeting the foremost leaders
in the metropolis.
Miss Minnie E. Neal asks each mem-
ber of young people's societies on July
4th to give 10 cents toward meeting

exhibit," which will form a part of
the temperance campaign that is be-
ing planned. We would like to sug-
gest thet Endeavorers come to the
prayer meeting prepared for a gener-
ous collection, and after our state
song, "Florida for Christ," is sung,
there will be a silver offering, which
on Monday is forwarded to Mrs.
George Doig, Gainesville, treasurer of
the W. C. T. U. of Florida. If this is
not done on July 4th, seven days la-
ter will compensate.

There are six young women among
the district secretaries and two young
nien. One of the latter, Mr. W. L.

cona to Kissimmee, the town in which
his district president, Mrs. Miller:, re-
sides. Things worth while should get

It is a source of satisfaction that
the farmers of this state,. and also of
Florida, are taking the advice the
newspapers have been giving them for
years, namely, to diversify their crops.
A dispatch from Quitman, published
Sin the Morning News, says that the
farmers of Brooks county are thinking
very seriously of planting a good por-
tion of their land next year in wheat.
Brooks is one of the progressive coun-
ties of the state and its farmers are
doing a good deal of diversified as
well as intensive farming. They raise
a great many hogs, and their pork,
hams and lard are famous in south
Georgia markets. Of course it takes
corn to fatten the hogs, and hence
it is fair to assume that a good per-
centage of the land is planted to corn.
And now they are going into the culti-
vation of wheat. They may not be

able to raise as much. wheat per acre
as is raised in the Dakotas or Kan-
sas, but it is pretty safe to predict
that they will get more profit out of it
than they have been getting out of
Of course, at 11, or even 10 cents a
pound, there is a profit in the culti-
vation of cotton, but if there is a good
crop in all the cotton belt the price
drops considerably below 10 cents.
It drops far enough to deprive the
farmers of much profit.
When there is no profit times are
hard with the cotton farmer because
he has to purchase all of his supplies.
Practically he has little or nothing
with which to buy them. He has to
go into debt, and that really means
other burdens-interest and higher
prices for supplies-because the far-
mer who buys on credit cannot buy
as cheaply as the one who pays cash.
The cultivation of food crops in
connection with farming is the true
way to prosperity for the farmers of
this state. With full corn cribs and
barns and well stocked smoke houses
they can hold their cotton when the
price is low and they don't have to
pay out all the proceeds from their
cotton for food supplies. They are as
independent as wood sawyers and can
hold their cotton for a year or more if

Traveling men returning from their
trips are commenting on the fine ap-
pearance of the crops in south and
southwest Georgia, but particularly
are they surprised at the increase in
the corn acreage. They do not recall
a year when so much attention was
given to corn and oats as this year.
The result will be that the farmers
will be in good financial condition
next fall, if the season is a favorable
one. They will have money, because
they will not have to pay it all out
to the west for flour, meal and bacon.
They will not be such good customers
of their merchants, but they will be
able to pay their merchants more
promptly for what they get of them.
And both parties will be better satis-
Let the sentiment in behalf of di-
versified and intensified farming in-
crease. It will do more than anything
else to make the state rich and rros-
perous. Then we shall grow every-
thing we need at home and the profit-
we make out of cotton will be clear
profit. It will be money that can be
used in making improvements or es-
tablishing industries. It will be home
capital to be used at home.-Savan-
nah News.

With the return of the Herald

scout car from the round trip to At-
lanta the magnitude and importance
of the undertaking set on foot by the
Herald and Atlanta 'Journal are made
exceedingly plain. Ten states have
seen and cheered the good roads mis-
sionaries; hundreds of communities
have been Inspired to effort to better
their highway.
Transportation facilities are a meas-
ure of commercial progress and of
civilization in general. Of the rail-
roads in this country any American
may be proud; their efficiency is be-
yond question. But our common
roads-the paths for carriages and
wagons and automobiles-have been
a national scandal and reproach. Be-
cause of their inferior character,
which levies heavy toll on every com-
modity carried, it has been estimated
that good roads cost this country
more than two hundred million dol-
i lars a year.
Any project, therefore, that aims to
stimulate interest in the building of
and maintenance of decent roads de-
serves encouragement. What shall
be said, then, of this magnificent con-
ception of the Herald and Atlanta
Journal that takes for its field the At-
lantic seaboard and aims at nothing
less than the construction of a splen-
did highway from New York to the
enterprising Georgia capital!
The recent trip of the scout cars
was but the first step in the plan.
Next month. will see pathfinders trav-
el between here and Atlanta to deter-
mine the best route to be followed in
the great reliability contest for auto-
mobiles, which will be held in the
July and November will be the time
for road construction all along the se-
lected route. Large cash prizes will
be given to the counties, north and
south, that provide the best high-ways.
"Pull for good roads" is the slogan
of the two newspapers promoting this
great enterprise. It ought to be the
slogan of the nation.-New York Her-


It is not likely that the present ses-
sion of congress will enact an inheri-
tance tax law.
Both the income tax and the cor-
poration tax are held apparently in

Are now engaged in tinkering with the
But the time may come when the
growing demands of the government
for increased revenues may necessi-
tate the adoption of this experiment.
Consequently it will be of some in-
terest to note the four important facts
which an English economist has
brought to the attention of the Brit-
ish nation in connection with the in-
heritance tax which is now operative
in the United Kingdom.
First-About 700,000 persons die in
the United Kingdom every year.
Second-Some 80,000 persons of
this number have property which re-
quires the attention of the govern-
Third-These 80,000 persons relin-
quish estates which are valued in the
aggregate $1,500,000.000.
Fourth-Of this total, not less than
$1,000,000,000 is left by 4000 persons.
On the facts above presented the
following terse comment is made:
The United Kingdom has a total
population considerably over 40,000,-
000, and it follows that 40,000,000 peo-
ple each year are in a position to ob-
serve a transfer to new owners of
property amounting to $1,500,000,000,
which was left by the 80,000 persons
who had died. The mass of the na-
tion, to put the case more strongly,
which has from the individual stand-
point, comparatively little accumulat-
ed wealth, is in a position to observe
that $1.000,000,000 in property annual-
ly passes from 4000 dead persons to
as many more living ones who did
nothing whatever to earn the $1,000,-
Without posing in the role of the
prophet it is safe to predict that the
argument above made will yet pre-
vail in favor of an inheritance tax on
this side of the Atlantic.
For the growing expenditures of the
government will make the logic of 'the
measure irresistible.-Atlanta Geor-'

This paper desires to say that it
was in no way responsible for the
item that appeared in the Owensboro
(Ky.) Inquirer, which accredited Rev.
C. C. Carroll with saying that Ocala
"is a bad place." As the Kentucky pa-
per did not get its information from
Mr. Carroll direct it must have got-
ten it from a report of a sermon
printed in the Star, the sermon hav-
ing been delivered by Mr. Carroll on
the Sunday morning before his depar-
ture from this city. Broadly speaking
in this sermon he seems to have given
Ocala an all round roast. It grieved
this paper that he should have done
so, and its love for Ocala is so acute
and sensitive that it omitted all men-
tion of it. It is needless to say that
this paper, on every possible occasion
decorated Mr. Carroll with all manner
of flowers, and it was a pleasure for
it to do so because it thought that his
work here was along right lines. So
it appears to it that it is the Kentucky
and not the Ocala editor on which he
should begin his work of reformation.

During the Spanish-American war
our canned beef manufacturers were
pelted with newspaper criticism all
along the line, and their products
were called "embalmed beef." To
have outlived this criticism and to
have prospered in spite of it is in it-
self a big victory, but after a thor-
ough investigation and in competition
with, the manufacturers of all the
world, to have been selected by the
British government to furnish beef
for its army over home manufacturers
is the victory recently won by Messrs.
Armour and Company.

A recent dispatch says:
"Armour and Company have just
received a cable order from the Brit-
ish government for 1.000,000 pounds
of corne.,l beef to be delivered in Oc-
tober. This is the second big order
from England since the beef scandal
of four years ago."

Speaking of the order, Mr. Arthur
!Meeker of the company, says:
"I regard it as a final seal of rec-
ommendation. For the last four years
the American meat product has been
the object of suspicion. So strong
was the feeling that in many of the
British colonies libelous circulars
were printed and distributed. During
the last year. however, the authorities
of England have visited our plants
and the reports were favorable.'
A 11 4. 2- - --. __ -

order will total $120,000.
We congratulate Mr. W. D. Ritch-
ey, the representative of the Armour
Company in this city, for the signal
victory his company has achieved in
competition with all the meat packers
of the worldM.
Whenever an American industry
wins so signal a victory we cannot but
express our congratulations, so we
say, "Shake!"

A special article on pecan culture
by J. B. Wright, a successful planter
and an authority on tMe subject, opens
the June number of the Florida Fruit
and Truck Grower of Ocal,a L J.
Brumby, editor. In an editorial draw-
ing attention to this article. Editor
Brumby says: "Pecan culture is, we
believe, one of the coming great in
dustries of the south, and most ,.-pe-
cially in Florida, a state whose every
condition would indicate it as a nat-
ural Home for the pecan." He says
he expects to give considerably more
attention to the subject in the future
and the large number of persons who
feel an interest in pecan growing
could not do better than to send -i dol-
lar each to Ocala and thus procure the.
means for intelligent study of the cul-
ture. There are a number of other
subjects treated of instructively In

At the meeting of the city council
Tuesday night the following% resolu-

Helvenston, which were' unanimously
"Whereas, By the inscrutable provi-
dence of the Divine Ruler of the uni-
verse, Dr. William Herbert Powers
has been removed from the large
spl ere of usefulness which he so ably
filled, we, the city council of Ocala,
desire to put on record the keen sense
of loss which, as guardian of the pub-
lic health, we feel in his demise.

"Not only has a shadow fallen on a

happy home, but the city mourns in
the loss of an official, vigilant, intelli-
gent and efficient members of the
board of health.
"As a physician, in his private prac-
tice he was kind and sympathetic, and
as a public spirited citizen his influ-
ence and efforts were directed for the
public good.

sympathy with the mother, wife, son
and other relatives in their bereave-

The Jacksonville Metropolis of
Tuesday says that Monday was a busy
day for Judge Locke of the United
States court, as many suits were
brought before him. Among them
was one in which the defendants are
residents of Ocala.
The suit is desertbed as follows:
Heward B. Tuttle, Mary A. Tuttle
ad Franklin H. Head entered suit
against Edward Holder and John W.
pearson to recover damages in the
mmB of $10.e00 in a land matter. The
plalatUis declaration states that cer-
tain lands in Citrus county, compris-
tag a tract of 80 acres, were sold for
S per' acre by the doeadants, when
they were on reality worth much
more. The action for damages Is ba-
sed on the plantiffs de'tmratkio that
the defendants stated that the lands
were oaly of valve for the timber
which grew thereon, and at the same
time they well knew that the laids
contained valuable p osp-at depoe-

The Ocala Banner's more recent of-
fense seems to be in sticking by
Ocala. For so doing it is being called
all sorts of names. But you can't fool
all the people all the time.
Never in its life has the Banner, on
its own volition, given willful offense
to anyone unless holding up the good
name of the city of its birth has been
an offense.
But in the efforts to belittle it, it is
name of the city of its birth is an of-
"Adrian, Mich., June 28, 1909.
"To My Old Fried, Frank Harris::
Greeting--We have but small finan-
cial holdings in old Marion, and some-
times think we will drop off. Then,
again, it seems hard to drop an old
friend that has been in the family for
over thirty years, and, by the way, all
the sunshine we have had this sum-
mer until the first of June, was that
we gleaned from the columns of the
Banner. We wish you success in
your fight for the right.-G. P. R."
From Fort Worth, Texas, under
date of June 30th, comes the follow-
"The Banner looks good to me, and
I enjoy it very much."
From High Springs. Fla., comes the
"Inclosed please find money order
in payment of your bill. Please ac-
cept my thanks for a very neat job.-

We thank our friends for their con-
tinued marks of appreciation.


Henry M. Flagler is just now
sessed. it is said, with the idea
he can complete his railroad to


West by his next birthday, which
comes early in 1910. On that birth-
day Mr. Flagler will have completed
his 80th year.
It would be the crowning event of a
long and useful life to be enabled to
witness, as part of the celebration of
his natal day, the realization of the
gigantic project which has been the
main purpose of his recent efforts.
It is a stupendous work which Mr.
Flagler has done, and it will be the
earnest hope of everybody interested
in successful exploits that he will
complete it before his death. Mr.
Flagler has spent $33,000,000 already
on this railroad. A few days ago he
secured $10,000,000 from J. P. Morgan
& Co., to complete the construction
into Key West. Forces of workmen
have been doubled and every possible
resource of brains, money and ener-
gy will be taxed in order that this
honored octogenarian may not look
with his last earthly glance upon a
work unfinished.
Mr. Flagler evidently does not be-

lieve that, should he die, the railroad
will be co.-pleted. He desires-to take
na chances on this score. He wishes
to see it finished while he is yet
among the living, and thus rebuke
those who Jeered when he began the
vast undertaking that he was enacting
a stupendous but hopeless folly.-

Rossle Yonge and Mr.' Jake
who were out yesterday can-

vamsing subscriptions for the new op.

than they had anticipated. Two-
thirds of the entire amount, we are in-
formed, were subscribed the first day.
This certainly cheering news. I
there is one thing Ocala needs more
than another it is a good opera house,
and the patriotic manner in which our
cittsens responded to the call of the
solieftag committee shows coaelu-
svely that Oeak will soon have this
much needed playhouse.

ready been secured at a snomial fig-

Mr. and Mrs. Geo. K. Robinson and
son, Phil Robinson, came down Satur-

Mr. Norton Davis spent the week-
end with Mr. W. V. Newsorn.
Saturday evening about uine o'clock
quite a large 'possum was discovered
climbing up Mr. Chazal's flag-pole.
Mr. Chazal made a desperate effort to
shake him down, but being unsuccess-
ful Mr. Patrick came to the rescue
with his gun and brought the monster
to earth. Just ask him about it.
Saturday evening Mrs. W. V. New-
som was the hostess at a very lovely
dinner party, given in honor of the
young people of Woodmar.
An informal dance was held Satur-
day evening at the Palmetto cottage,
which was greatly enjoyed.
Mr. Paul Weathers has invented a
new style fishing costume. Ask him
about it.
Mr. L. E. Patrick has proven him-
self quite a fisherman, having caught
a six-pound trout off tne dock at
Woodmar. The lake of late years has
had the reputation of being devoid of
fish, but fishing parties during the
last month have caught very plentiful
supplies, and as many as forty t, fif-
ty have been caught by one party in
one evening.
Mr. R. R. Carroll of the Ocala Star
has commenced the erection of a cot-
tage on his lot at Woodmar, which he
hopes to have ready to enjoy for a
part of this summer. Mr. Carroll
made his first visit the other day to
look at his lot since he bought it
some years ago, and was surprised to
note the many improvements at
Woodmar. * *


Beakman Thomas, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas of Belleview, died very
suddenly Wednesday, about 3 o'clock.
He had had fever the day before. Dr.
Johnson from Inverness was tele-
graphed for. Beakman saw him from
the window as he lay on the bed as
the doctor was driving into town, near
their house, and he spoke to his un-
cle, who was in the room with him,.
asking if that was not the doctor
driving by. Mr. McClendon, the uncle,
stepped to the door and called the
doctor. When he* came in the boy
was unconscious and soon died. Beak-
man would have been 17 years old on
his next birthday. The funeral was
held Thursday.


News reached Ocala Thursday that
Mr. Adam Eichelberger had died at 9
o'clock -that morning in Atlanta.
The body will be shipped to Obcala
for interment, and the funeral will be
held here on Sunday.

death occur-

Mr. Haskell has for many years liv-
ed at Lake Weir, and owns one of the
prettiest and most profitable groves
on the south side. He has during his
residence in this county made scores
of friends, who will be shocked to
learn of his death, as he was at last
accounts enjoying splendid health.
Mr. Haskell was a man of wide ex-
perience, having been connected,
among other business enterprises,
with the tea industry in China for fif-
teen years. Mr. Haskell was about

seventy years of age.

We have not

learned of the funeral arrangements.

We are much pleased to be able to
state that the article copied from the
Ocala Banner by the Commercial last
week stating that Mr. T. P. Drake of
Yalaha would soon move to Ocals was
entirely an error on the part of the
Banner. We saw Mr. Drake this week
and he assured us that he has no in-
tention of moving to Ocala or any oth-
er place.
He recently purchased a fine piece
of property in Ocala, but bought it
merely as a speculation. Mr. Drake's
residence near Yalaha is one of the
finest in Lake county, and his orange
groves at that place are among the
most profitable in the state. He has
lived there long enough to know that
Lake county is the best county in the
state and there is no probability of
his leaving it. We do not blame the
editor of the Banner and the people of
Ocala for wanting to secure him and
his interesting family as citizens, but
we know they are doomed to disap-
pointment.-Leesbarg Commercial.
The Banner obtained its informa-
tion from a ve reliable source, and
if Mr. Drake I*a to move to Ocala
we regret it vey much. The Beaser
did not say that he would at oaes
move to Ocala, but that his bueieae
Interests here would eventually lead
'to his becoming a citise of this eity.

United in the holy estate of matri-
mony on July 1, 1909, at 5:30 p. m., at
the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. D.
B. Mathews, Mr. Frank S. Dupuis and
Miss Janie Brooks. The wedding was
conspicuous in common sense ar-
The bride's trousseau was not be-
decked with costly lace nor bejeweled
with pearls and precious stones, but
it was beautifully neat and becoming,
and together with her natural modes-
ty, patient disposition and her actual
worth as a factor in useful society,
combined with the bloom of youth
and good health upon her rosy cheeks,
Miss Brooks made an appearance and
Impesflon that transcends all the
glittering vanity of worldly waifs of
The groom was nattily dressed in a
salt that outvies the much advertised
production of the Georgia cloth mills,
made expressly for "Sunny Jim," vice
president of the United States. As
the genial Frank led his bride to the
altar with precise military dignity, he
reminded the officiating magistrate of
the drum-major, who, at the battle of
Bull Run, raised his insignia of au-
thority, indicating to the band that
they play "Dixie," at the same time
vociferating "On to Washington."
Imagine the effect produced by the
striking appearance and imposing at-
titude of our indomitable Frank.
No, the magistrate did not swoon,
but it took him some time to recover
normal respiration so that he could
proceed with the ceremony, after
which the happy were the recipi-
eats of hearty oNwatulations from
the many friends Akd relatives who
were present.
Mr. and Mrs. Dupuis immediately
left for Ocala, from 'whence they take
I their departure on a wedding todr
through Alabama and the Carolinas,
visiting relatives. We wish them a
glorious tour. AMEN.

A quiet wedding ceremony was per-
formed at 6:30 p. m., July 4th, by
uniting in the holy estate of matri-
mony, Mr. W. R. Simpson and Miss
Mary A. Yongue.
The young couple had been enjoy-
ing a buggy ride during the afternoon,
and becoming inspired with the beau-
ty of nature, the loveliness of the at-
mosphere and the general aspect of
tranquility pervading the poetic sub-
limity of the gorgeous scenery as they
passed through that portion of old
Marion, known as Fairfield and vi-
cinity, we do not marvel that, enrap-
tured by the ecstatic loveliness of all
things-as they gazed into each oth-
er's eyes-and the proffered oppor-
tunity of enjoying life in more con-
crete form. they promptly accepted
the situation, and drawing inspiration
from an important document issued
out of the court of the county judge,
they naturally meandered into the of-

pretty and modest, and will always be
a gem in the diadem of the groom's
domestic bliss.

Marion Camp No. 56, U. C. V., met
at the council chamber in Ocala on
Tuesday, July 6.
In the absence of Chaplain W. L.
Ditto, Brigadier General Long acted
in his stead.
A calling of the roll found the fol-
lowing members present, viz: Alfred
Ayer, J. L. Beck, F. W. Blitch, H. W.
Douglass, W. D. Eminisor, M. P. Frink,
L M. Graham, F. h;. tHarris, R. A. Kel-
sey, W. Kilpatrick, J. H. Livingston,
H. W. Long, T. D. Lancaster, W .E.
McGahagin, Robert Neal, C. C. Priest,
F. M. Townsend, FE T. Williams.
Minutes of the June meeting were
read and adopted.
General order No. 8, from headquar-
ters of Brigadier General Long, com-
manding second brigade, appointing
Alfred Ayer, adjutant general and
chief of staff, vice W. L. Ditto, remove
ed to Jacksonville, was read and
spread on the minutes.
General orders No. 17, emanating
from New Orleans, were read, stating
that thirty-eight camps of Confederate
veterans had been organized since the
re-union of the Veterans in Memphis,
Tenn., on June 10th.
Resolutions of thanks were also
read, passed at the re-union at Mem-
phis, approving the action of ex-Presi-
dent Roosevelt for the restoration of
the name of Jefferson Davis on the
tablet of Cabin John Bridge, Washing-
ton, D. C. The resolution went on to
say that this was a further proof of
the desire of the federal government
to blot out all that remained of sec-
tional prejudice and thus unite this
great people under one banner.
General orders No. 19, emanating
from headquarters at Memphis, Tenn.,
signed by General Clement A. Evans,
general commanding, conveying to the
people of Memphis and the state of
Tennessee the thanks of the organiza-
tion for the amgniflcent provision
made for their comfort, pleasure and
entertainment, were also read. Gen-
eral Evans said it would ever be re-
membered as one of the greatest re-
unions in the history of the associa-

Instructions emanating from the
pension department at Tallahassee,
giving directions as to how applica-
tions are to be made out, were read
and discussed. It is incumbent upon
all pensioners to make out new appli-
cation papers, but those now receiv-
ing pensions are not to make out new
proofs, but their identity by the affi-
davits of two reputable citizens .s re-
Mr. J. M. T. Christian gave notice
of the death of Mr. Jerry Waters, who
was a soldier in the Confederate army,
though not a member of this camp.
He said that he left his aged sisters
in a destitute condition.
Major Lancaster gave notice of the
death of Mr. William McAteer, whose
death has already been noted in these

Senator Brown is evidently loaded
with pretty effective shells on the cap-
ital removal question.
He has the facts and it is up to
some of those who criticise him, cap-
tiously, to answer his aramnents or
refrain from attacking him.

The fact is, Florida has outgrown
its capital, once probably well located
to serve the needs of the state, but
now out of the way, hard and incon-
venient to reach by three-fifths of the
population, and as the state con-
tinues in its upward march will fur-
ther leave its capital behind on the
way to prosperity.
The feeling is rapidly growing that
