The meeting of the Serbian and
Greecian assemblies, which take place
tcday, is expected to bring the Bal-
kan situation to a crisis. The assem-,
blies will probably decide the Bulgar
ian territorial demands, upon which
depends the action of the Balkan
states with the allies. The outlook is
regarded pessimistically here. It is
expected that Serbia will seek a com-
promise, which it is predicted Greece
will refuse. Athens reports that
King ConFtantine is for neutrality.
Meantime, there are many evidences
that the Teutonic allies are preparing
for a Balkan offensive. A Bucharest
dispatch says the German forces are
concentrated near the junction of
Hungary, Roumania and Serbia. This,
with the bombardment of Belgrade
and Austrian artillery activity along
the Danube, supports the reports and
the outcome of the crisis is anxiously
awaited. Bulgarian officials don't
believe an agreement will be reached.

So found Homer Dean, Ocala's ex-
policeman of unloved memory, who
was killed near Romeo, eighteen
miles west of here Saturday night by
G rover Cribbs.
Few particulars of the shooting
have reached Ocala. It is only known
that Dean was at Cribbs home Sat Saturday
urday Saturday night, that Cribbs and Dean
had a dispute of some kind, that
Cribbs said, "Wait, let me go in the
house a minute," and went in, and
then came out with a shotgun, with
which he fired one shot, which killed
Dean. Cribbs then took to the tall
timber and has not been overtaken.
Homer Dean was a man of about
thirty years of age. Some half a doz dozen
en dozen years ago he was on the Ocala
police force and made himself very
unpopular. Among other things he
made an assault on a prominent citi
zen, for which he was found guilty
and heavily fined. He showed little
discretion and some brutality and
probably did more to bring the police
force into discredit than any other
man who has been on it in twenty twenty-five
five twenty-five years. He was suspended from
the force, and later brought himself
into prominence by an attempt to
fasten a fake robbery of the South Southern
ern Southern Express Company on another
With all these things against him,
it is only justice to say there was
considerable of good in Homer Dean.
For one thing he had plenty of phys-
cal courage. For another, if he took
a liking to anyone, there was nothing
he would not do to show his friend-
hip. He would share his last dollar
with a friend, or stand by him in trou
ble, no matter what the odds.
He was married a short time ago,
and it was hoped and believed by his
riends that with the ties of matri
mony and increasing years greater
discretion would come to him. These
lopes and his life were cut short by a
charge of buckshot Saturday night,
the man who killed him probably be-
ng impressed by Dean's reputation
of soonness on the draw, and un
willing to give him a chance.
A letter to Sheriff Galloway this
afternoon from an officer at Dunnel-
on said that Cribbs had not been ap
prehended. The officer seemed to
think Cribbs had justification and the
coroner s jury would exonerate him.

Ford car, left Ocala early in the
morning, going to at. Petersburg.
About ten miles this side of Dunnel Dunnellon,
lon, Dunnellon, while running at a good speed,
something went wrong with the steer
ing gear, and in spite of all Mr. Par
ker could do, the car rammed a tree,
throwing both occupants out. Miss
Parker was thrown thru the wind
shield and sustained a terrible wound
in the throat. Her windpipe was cut
half thru and her neck was gashed in
a fearful manner. With her brother
stunned and almost helpless, the lady
was in a sorrowful condition and
would soon have bled to death if help
had not arrived. Mr. Seckinger of
Hernando, coming to Ocala in his car,
arrived in the nick of time, and took
Mr. and Miss Parker back to Dunnel-
on as rapidly as possible. A Dun
nellon physician gave first aid to the
injured, meantime phoning for one of
his Ocala colleagues, who went to the
rescue as fast as gasoline would drive
him. Miss Parker was in a critical
condition, it being necessary to put a
silver tube in her throat. The phy physicians,
sicians, physicians, however, have hopes of
saving her life. Mr. Parker has been
a member of the Michigan legislature
and is a prominent citizen of Lansing.
He and his sister have been having a
pleasant tour of the South and it is
greatly regretted that they had such
a painful accident.

Mr. Martin and his nephew went to
the veranda of the Ocala House and
sat down in chairs close together.
Young Martin said that his mother,
now long since dead, had spoken to
him about money that J. R. Martin
owed her, and he had decided that
the matter had to be settled up, and
demanded that Mr. Martin give him a
check for five thousand dollars and
the matter would be closed and no
questions asked. He told his uncle
that there would be no use for him
to try to raise a fuss or call for help
or get out of paying the money for

would be killed the instant he made

that he would have to go to the Com Commercial

nephew asked him if he did not have
a check in his pocket and he said he
had none.
The nephew said then they would
walk to the bank and they proceeded
to do so. He told his uncle that he
vould have him covered all the time,
and that any demonstration would
result in his death. They walked
over to the bank corner, the young
man keeping his word and having
the muzzle of the revolver at his
uncle's side every moment of the time.
Arriving at the entrance to the bank,
young Martin asked if it were neces necessary

Young Martin said he was afraid if
he went in that his uncle would get
away from him without his getting
the money. Just then Mr. Sam Igou
passed by, and Mr. Martin spoke to
him. Young Martin said, "WThat did
you do that for?" and started to
shoot his uncle. Mr. Martin grabbed
his nephew's hand, as he had kept
very close to him, looking for just
such a move, and was able to deflect
the bullet which went downward. Mr.

It may be that the young man was
in desperate need of a large sum of

may be that he is temporarily insane
