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.

Editor Star: I notice wh?t I sup suppose
pose suppose to be a kind of "scarecrow" going
the rounds of the state press, that the
special session of the legislature will
take up and pass over the governor's
veto the Angle bill, providing for the
abolition of the convict lease system.
I beg to correct this mistake with
the following statements of facts. The
Angle bill above mentioned was in introduced
troduced introduced in the House of Representa Representatives
tives Representatives at the session of 1911 on Tues Tuesday,
day, Tuesday, April 11th, was reported favora favorably
bly favorably by a joint committee from House
and Senate May 6th, was passed by the
House May 17th, was certified to the
Senate, passed, enrolled, signed by the
president and speaker of both houses,
submitted to the governor and vetoed
by him on May 23th, returned to the
House with the governor's veto and
the question was put tj the House by
thr speaker "shall the bill pass not notwithstanding
withstanding notwithstanding the veto of the governor;"
the roll was called and a yea and nay
vote was taken and the governor's
veto was sustained and the Angle con convict
vict convict bill was killed. (See page 1980
House Journal, May 29th, 1911).
So you will note the same bill that
provided the abolition of the convict
lease system and was vetoed by the
governor and failed to pass at the last
session of the legislature will not be
considered in the special session to be
held in October, 1912.

One of the grave needs of the city of
Ocala is an active weed law and the
fitv council could not inaugurate a
more beneficial move at the .-am- cost
now than to enforce an ordinance re requiring
quiring requiring the weeds to be cut down and
kept cut down in yards and vacant lot lot-over

breeders and serve to hide away
mosquito hatcheries. The reason why
sickness about the city becomes prev prevalent

because of the maturity of the weeds,

prevent It the weeds should be mowed
down without delay.
The writer would suggest that if

health officers be instructed to notify

weeds that now ornament the city.
It is not only a matter of puMic

there Is plenty of room for improve improvement

weeds, clean off the vacant lots about

People from northern cities understnnd
the deadly perils that lurk behind the
portals of a town grown up with weeds
and hundreds of cities have ordinances
requiring them to be cut down on
both occupied and vacant lots.
Ocala should get omevement started
along this line and do it without delay.

had threatened to make to his suit. The
old man felt buoyant and exhilarated.

at once, and in the sitting-room of the
Ryan mansion heard from Dominick's
own Hps the story of his false and
tragic marriage.
The old man listened, unwinking,
speechless, immovable. It was the
