as a source of discord between the
United States and Germany; or, at

Moreover Germany, in the desire
to continue friendly, had adopted be before

policy designed to settle completely
the whole submarine problem as af affecting
fecting affecting America, on a basis of good
will and mutual understanding.
This shows conclusively that from
last night's statement which the
chancellor gave the Associated Press,
particularly the concluding remark,
"until the circumstances are learned,"
it will be impossible to tell whether
the submarine commander exceeded
his instructions. The chancellor re referred
ferred referred twice to instructions given
submarine commanders. He didn't j
outline them definitely, but it may be
said they are designed to prevent a
repetition of the Lusitania tragedy.
Ample reparation will be offered if
the commander is at fault.

Interesting Game Between Ocala and
Palatka Yesterday was Rather
Slimly Attended
Ihe first game of the series be between
tween between Ocala and Palatka yesterday
was interesting and well contested,
but was witnessed by a rather small
attendance. It is evident that Palat
ka has a crackerjack team, and the
Ocala boys had to do their best work
to hold it to a tie.
Following is a report of the game:
Spitznigle tried to uphold the glory
of Germany on land and sea but was
compelled to whiff three. Edmonson
singled and went to second on a lit little
tle little slow fielding. Donaldson singled
and Edmonson scored. Donaldson
was caught at second, Robertson
walked and Chapman was out, short
to first.
It was seen that Galloway was a
little off and couldn't entirely control
the ball, but he had his drop working
beautifully and held his own.
In the seventh inning Ocala drove
ir. two runs and it looked as if the
game was won, but you never can
tell in a ball game. Davis connect connected
ed connected up with one and slowed down
when he reached second. Zewadski
singled over third and stole second.
Blitch struck out. Bullock reached
first on an error, Davis scoring.
Bartley was out, second to first, Ze Zewadski
wadski Zewadski scoring on the play. Bullock
was caught napping at second.
In their half of the eighth Palatka
tried to put the old ball game in
their pocket and succeeded very well,
some thought. Donaldson struck out,
Robertson walked and Chapman
singled and went to second a little
later. Holt hit a hot one over third,
scoring both runners and going to
second. Brinson hit through short,
but Chazal recovered the ball and
made a beautiful peg to the plate,
heading off Holt, who was run down.
Lenning walked and Barslow scratch
ed a hit. Spitznigle was hit by a
drop. Edmonson flew out to left.
In the ninth it was do or die with
Ocala and everybody thought it
would be the dying part, but they
were fooled. Batts, after looking
two over, sent the ball by the second
baseman so fast he couldn't see it.
Batts circled the bases while the
right fielder chased the ball. He could
have reached home but he stopped on
third to find out if they had found
the ball. Davis lined out one to left.

play and Bartley hit one straight at
the third baseman. Lenning was put
in after Batts got on to Barslow and
except for first class fielding he
would have shared his fate.
Today being half holiday, a much
better attendance is hoped for. It is
understood that a good delegation
will be over from Palatka, and Ocala
should turn out in force. The third
game will be played tomorrow after

Cole Blease, Ex-Governor of South
Carolina, Addresses the Gov Governors

(Associated Press)
Boston, Aug. 26. Former Governor
Cole Blease of South Carolina, in an
address delivered here today before
the governors' conference on "The
Duty and Responsibility of Chief Ex Executives
ecutives Executives in Dealing with Prisoners,"
declared that the lynching of men in
the South "for certain crimes is a pro protection
tection protection to civilization." He condemn condemn-ei
ei condemn-ei the "third degree" in dealing with
prisoners and expressed the opinion
that it was worse in some respects
than lynching.
"The money we spend for courts
and prisons is very ill laid out," said
Governor Blease. He continued in
part: "Wre make, by distrust, the
thief, the burglar, and incendiary,
and by our court and Jail we keep
them so. An acceptance of the sen
timent of love throughout Christen
dom for a season would bring the
felon and the outcast to our side in
tears, with the devotion of his facul faculties
ties faculties to our service.
"Within the past few weeks we
read in the newspapers of a man who
had made an attempt upon the life
of another being plied with questions
until he was too weak to talk, then
being walked up and down the cor corridors
ridors corridors of his prison to revive him,
then plied with questions again, and
subjected to God alone knows what
else, in the administration of the
'third degree. Later this prisioner
was found on the floor of his cell with
his skull crushed in, and it was stated
that he climbed to the top of his cell
door and jumped to the floor, killing
himself. Whether he was murdered
or whether he really committed sui suicide
cide suicide I do not know; but this I do
know, that the suicide of any man
would hardly be unnatural under such
circumstances, and that the treat treatment
ment treatment accorded him, before conviction,
would have been a disgrace to our civ civilisation

he had been tried and sentenced.
"This 'third degree method that is
practiced in the" North and the East
and the West less frequently, I am
glad to say, in the South whether
the man be killed during its admin administration

commit suicide, or whether- he be in

form, under the sanction of law, and
those guilty of practicing it evidence

the malice which animates the mid midnight

The people of the greater part of
Marion county are very apathetic
about the county division election
which is to take place in the north northwest
west northwest precincts Sept. 15.
The people in the precincts con concerned
cerned concerned are busy, of course, and so
far as the Star can see, are mostly
busy on the right side. In Ocala, the
Star thinks it has a right to claim
that it has led the fight and has had
the assistance of a few patriotic
citizens. Mr. Crosby, Mr. Light and
some others living along the dividing
line have been patriotically busy. But
the great majority of the people of
the city and three-quarters of the
county have acted like they were not
in the least concerned.
They ought to be ashamed of their
apathy. If the division movement
wins, the entire county, Pedro x and
Moss Bluff, Salt Springs and Orange
Springs, as well as Ocala, Martel,
Dunnellon and Mcintosh, will be the
losers. It is against the interest and
should be against the better senti sentiment
ment sentiment of every citizen of Marion that
such a jagged gash be cut in the now

and that so many good citizens
should be lost to us.

little bunch in the northwest section,

Belleview, Aug. 25. Consistency
tho uart a jewel, and I do admire the
consistency of the baseball editor of
the Star. When any of the many
bush leagues of the surrounding
country go up to Ocala to give the
Ocala nine a correct imitation of how
to play baseball and one happens to
get beat in the attempt, then the Star
comes out in all its glory with hid hideous
eous hideous carcicatures showing how the
Ocala boys walked all over, ran all
around and simply wiped the field up
with the visiting hayseed nine and in
two or three columns this baseball
editor expatiates at full length on the
wonderful plays made by each and
every one of the Ocala nine, Loosting
them up to the calibre of league tim
ber, and swelling their heads to the
extent of making them believe that
they are the real, genuine baseball ar
ticle all others imitations. But let a
little old scrub country nine appear on
Hunter's field and happen to give the
Ocala boys a real, genuine imitation
of how to play ball, and carry off the
honors. What happens ? Nothing
much, except the baseball editor tells
how a few of the Ocala boys had been
up late the night before, a few more
were just recovering from a serious
case of and the balance were
really not in good form. Last Thurs
day the Belleview baseball swatters
went up to Ocala and waxed the
Ocala boys to the tune of five to four.
That big-hearted baseball editor of
the Star gave them just seven lines
on an inside page and I am only try
ing to make up the deficiency.
(The baseball editor of the Star
went fishing last Thursday, and that
is the reason why the game had such
a limited write-up.)
Business visitors to Ocala last
Wednesday from Belleview were Mr.
John B. Sipes and brother, Mr. J. W".
Fant Jr. and Mr. E. B. Webb.
Mr. Winters Hames left last Tues Tuesday
day Tuesday night for Tavares, where he has
secured worn on a Dig surveying
Mrs. C. A. Tremere and Mrs. J. O.
Hightower are camping some where
out in the pine sticks over in the
neighborhood of Salt Springs, all by
their lonesome. They expect to have
a good time fishing, bathing and
studying the beauties of nature, free
from household cares or worry.
Mr. H. A. Kendall came up from
Lake county last Saturday to spend
the week-end at home. Mr. Kendall
holds a position as civil engineer with
a land company that controls nearly
100,000 acres of land in Lake and
Sumter counties and is likely to be
with them permanently. He says
there is a variety of mosquitoes and
other noxious insects found in the
wilds where he is operating different

Mr. Ed Schram of Jacksonville is
visiting with his brother on the farm.
Mr. and Mrs. Raymond B. Bullock
left Ocala in a machine last Friday
morning bound for Tavares. In
striking that nasty piece of road at
the foot of the hill, right near the clay
pit the machine did something to it itself
self itself that caused it to cease to loco loco-mote.
mote. loco-mote. Mr. Bullock walked into town
and warmed up the 'phone wires in
gettig another machine, and during
the interim they visited with their
friends until the rescuing machine ap appeared
peared appeared upon the scene. Mr. Bullock
bought a brand new collar, which
goes to show that he was hot in one
particular location.
Mr. J. N. Shedd has a grievance.
Some one shot and killed his collie
dog, one of the prettiest and most
gentle dogs in the town, and the per person
son person that would wilfully harm a dog
of this kind would rob a blind man in
the dark.
That boy, Bruce Meffert, is a big big-hearted
hearted big-hearted chap. Last Sunday a mule
team was jogging along the Lake
Weir road when a minor part of the
harness became disarranged, and the
driver got out to adjust same. While
busily engaged Mr. Meffert came
along in his flying whirlwind, and
drawing up to the team asked the
driver if he could help him any. Now
what do you think of that! And what
do you think Bruce Meffert knows
about a mule and its trappings.
One day last week a bunch of men,
coming down from Ocala in a ma machine,
chine, machine, bound for one of the towns
south of here, got into an argument
about the European war. Now, it is
alleged that some members of the
party were in a slightly inebriated
condition. It is further stated that
they were of different nationalities,
and represented the different nations
at war. It seems that the argument
waxed fast and furious, and that
while the machine was moving at
about 'steen miles per hour, the Eng
lishman was forcibly ejected (score
one for Germany); a little while later
as a Belleview lady, her daughter and
some friends were driving along the
road they espied a haggard, blood-

' covered face peeping at them from

above the weed tops, and they stop- j
ped to investigate and found a much-'
ly bruised and battered belligerent. :
They ministered to his wants and
soon stopped a machine coming up ;
from the south and explained the pre- S
dicament of the bruised wayfarer,
and the driver kindly consented to i
turn about and carry the unfortunate
one to his home. The moral of all 1
this is that it does not pay to argue
about the European war. Those fel-j
lows over there are doing the fight- j
ing and they will settle the matter

between themselves.
Last Saturday the Belleview base
ball swatters went down to Oklawaha
to play a pre-arranged game of ball.
Upon arrival they found six of the
Ocala baseball team (including Pat
Anderson) and three of the Oklawa
ha nine lined up against them so they
simply proceeded to keep those Ocala
boys busy chasing the ball until they
got tired and quit, with a score of 8
to 7 in favor of Belleview. Taking it
all in all, Belleview has one of the
classiest scrub nines in the county,
and some other places.
Says the Palatka Post: The com commissioners

its merchants and business concerns,

the Putnam county line, and when the
new highway is completed will give
the settlers a good road clear to the
city of Ocala by way of Bay Lake and
Orange Springs, as many Palatkans
know, is one of the real beauty spots
of this section of the state. Prior to

Paring City Expenses Down to the
Finest Possible Point
Following is the estimate of ex expenses
penses expenses offered by Alderman Moore at
the council meeting Tuesday night, in
consequence of which the millage was
reduced from 104 to 8 mills:
Mr. President: I desire to submit
for the consideration of this council
a new estimate for the expenditures
for the budget of 1915-16. Ocala at
the present time is going through one
of the worst financial depressions
known in its history, and it must be
remembered that while our popula
tion is progressive and desires to
keep pace with even the larger cities
in its public improvements, we must
at all times consider that these im improvements
provements improvements cannot be made by direct
taxation, and the question for this
council to solve is how to keep the
expenses of the city within reason so
that the tax payer may not be bur
dened by excessive taxation under the
present financial conditions.
I have taken in connection with the
tabulated budget each department,
and desire to submit the following
notes, to-wlt:
Executive Department
In this department, which consists
solely of salaries of the officials of
this city and incidental executive ex expanses,
panses, expanses, we find that at the last ses session
sion session of the legislature a bill was
passed allowing each councilman the
sum of $15 per month as salary. Dur During
ing During ordinary times this would not be
excessive, and perhaps small pay for
the services that the city receives;
but at the present time it adds $1620
to the expenses of the city, and in
my opinion the tax payers are not in
condition to bear this expense; and,
for my part, I would sooner see a tax
levy made of one-fourth mill each for
the Marion county hospital, the Ocala
city band, and a rest room. The latter
item I would particularly recommend,
for at the present time there is no
place where our country friends, who
are visiting the city for business rea reasons,
sons, reasons, with their wives and children,
may even feel that they have a place
to rest without infringing upon some someone.
one. someone. With this item of $1620 from
the budget it would reduce the esti
mate of the executive department to
$3020, which item is a little more
than it was during the year 1914-15.
Police Department
In this department I do not believe
it would be possible to conduct it any
more eocnomically that it has done
during the past year, while under
present conditions It will require
even more vigilance on behalf of the
department owing to a large floating
element that is adrift by reason of
the lack of employment in the state
at the present time.
Street Department
In this department, under the first
item of the old budget is $5000 for la
bor, while the estimate for 1914-15
shows that but $4708.81 was paid for
labor, a large amount of which was
paid out at the rate of $1.25 per day,
while at the present time these same
laborers are only paid $1 per day. In
comparing my estimate, you will note
that I have allowed $3500 for labor,
which is based upon the employment
I of eight men at a dollar per day and
a superintendent at $75 per month;
likewise allowing some $300 for the
employment of city prisoners.
You will also note that I have al allotted
lotted allotted but $300 for surveying. Dur During
ing During the past year the amount of
$945.30 was expended, this large
amount being made necessary by the
laying of sidewalks, which will not
be incurred during the present year.
Such surveying as may be necessary
for the laying of the city sewers will
be paid out of the proceeds from the
sale of the sewer bonds.
I have also allowed but $250 for re repairs,
pairs, repairs, horse-shoeing, etc., and in this
connection I desire to say that not
only in this department, but in every
department of the city, the strictest
economy must be practiced, as under
the present conditions the tax payers
must not be burdened by wasteful or
extravagant administration in any de department.

the sum of $8763.92 was expended in
this department, and In this connec connection
tion connection I desire to call the attention of
this council to the fact that the sum
of $S000 will not only pay the inter interest,
est, interest, but create a sinking fund, for the
bond issue of $100,000, and it is very
poor economy to continue the same
system of building temporary streets.
Sanitary Department
In this departrment I have allowed
$3000 for labor and superintendent,
which is based upon the employment
of seven men and one superintendent.
For horse feed, as in the street de department,
partment, department, I have allowed $952, and in
this connection I desire to call the at attention

street and sanitary departments to
the figures for the feeding of the
horses in the fire departrment. I un
derstand that the 6 tree t and sanitary J

departments have nine head of stock j

which, it would seem, is costing $1904
to feed. The fire department has
three head of stock which costs but
$411 per annum. The attention of the
chairmen of these two departments
is invited to these figures.

In this department the estimate for
salaries is the same as was stated in
the original budget. The amount for
horse feed is the same as in the orig

be reduced to the amount of the in interest

will be $330 per year) at the time the

tax payers of this city to be called on
to furnish not only police protection
but fire protection to the non-tax pay payers,

department (if there is any) should
not be foisted upon the tax payers, as
it is a well known fact that a large
proportion of the consumers of water
do not contribute anything directly to
the expenses of operating the city;
and. furthermore, the light and water
committee have stated that within a
short time the water plant will be op
erated in a much more economical
manner; and, as I have previously
stated, to foist the deficiency that
may occur in the operation of the wa
ter plant, by reason of its low rates,
upon the tax payer is adding a double
burden, or requiring approximately
less than one-third of our total adult

Health Department
In this department I have struck
off the amount of $91.36, which is al
lotted for sundries. During the past
year this department was completely
equipped, and should be, operated with
as little expense as possible, notwith
standing the fact that in this depart
ment the citizens of Ocala have per
haps received more direct benefit
than from any other department of
the city, for the records of the city
schools now show that since this de
partment was established the per
centage of absentees on account of
sickness has dropped to approximate approximately
ly approximately ten per cent, of the number for
merly absent.
Under the sub-head of contingen contingencies,
cies, contingencies, I have cut the amount allowed
for advertising from $418 to $250, for
the reason that we will have no side
walk advertising this year, and It is
not probable there will be any special
elections, and we have not publish published
ed published the auditor's report, all of which
were an expense in the preceding
year. For books and stationery I
have allowed $100.
I have been informed that the tele telephone
phone telephone company has raised the rate
from $2 per month to $3 this without
the consent of the city; but, inas
much as there seems to hare been an
agreement with the previous council
that the city should be furnished
phones at $2 per month, I cannot see
how the Telephone Company can.
without consulting this council, raise
its rates. In this connection I desire
to invite the attention of the council
to the fact-of the continued use by
this company of the city's poles, and
would suggest that the chairman of
the light and water committee have
the superintendent of the electric
light plant make a report to this coun council
cil council of the number of attachments by
telegraph and telephone companies
upon the poles and equipment of the
lighting department, in order that a

In the original budget the sum or

but $23 was required for the year
1914-15. In my opinion each depart department

to carry its own Insurance, and if this

that it Is not the duty of this council
to see how much money they can
spend, but rather to see how ec acorn-

city departments in order that the
tax payers may not be burdened with
an excessive tax rate, for the financial

council that it would be impossible to

building that a proper check may be
kept on the amount used to prevent
careless waste of water.
For public light I have allotted the
sum of $3500, which, when we consid consider
er consider that the actual cost of electricity
produced for the city's use is not
more than $2750, it would seem that
the city has no right to make more
than a reasonable profit upon, over Its
cost of production when It is selling it itself
self itself light, for when this Is done It
simply lays a further burden upon the
tax payers.
In submitting this revised budget.
I have been guided solely by a desire
to care for the Interests of the tax
payers of this city. It is claimed that
the city should pay a high rate for
Its public lighting and for the water
it consumes in order that a showing
may be made In these departments,
but I do not feel that the average tax
payer desires to, have false profits
made at his expense In order that the
non-tax payer may benefit.
In the new budget, the estimated
expenses for conducting the city's af affairs
fairs affairs will be $43,804.61. from which
we will deduct the estimated receipts
of $18,788.49, which would leave a
balance of $25,016.12. of which $11, $11,-600
600 $11,-600 will be for interest and sinking

require a 1 millage for sinking

levied for general fund of $13,416.12.
for which a 3 millage assessment
will provide ample funds, which
would leave on millage figured as fol follows:
