"THE BEST IN BANKING'
JONES RECOMMENDS ROONEY TO SUCCEED JM)ZIEIl
(Chas. E. Jones, in Dixie)
When death removed Laurence Dozier from his activities in this
state Florida lost one of its noblest and most loyal citizens, and while
the loss is irreparable, we must look about to find the logical successor
who will carry out a part of his -work. I believe that man is J. D. Rooney
of Ocala, the secretary of the board of trade of Ocala and a man whose
energy and ability is recognized by all a man who loved and appreci appreciated
ated appreciated the achievements of fcaurence Dozier and who would take up the
battle where Mr. Dozier laid it down to respond to the call of the Grim
Reaper. Mr. Dozier was president of the state board of trade and no
man is better able to fill this position so well filled by the deceased than
J. D. Rooney. Like Mr. Dozier, Mr. Rooney is aggressive and loves to
serve the state like Mr. Dozier, Mr. Rooney is interested in the gener general
al general development of Florida.
The great Ocklawaha project which was the dream of Laurence
Dozier's busiffess life and which he had pushed so successfully, is also
dear to J. D. Rooney, and he would be the ideal man -to take up Mr.
Dozier's great work.
Marion county and Lake county are in unison in the great Ockla Ocklawaha
waha Ocklawaha enterprise which will prove such a blessing to thousands. Mr.
Rooney is familiar with the project and has taken a deep interest in it.
Possessing splendid characteristics as a leader known as a man
who does things a man who loves Florida and who loves development,
it was a herculean task that Laurence Dozier undertook and he was
pushing it rapidly to success. Had he lived it would have proved the
crowning business effort of his life. But success must come and it will
come. Laurence Dozier's work must be continued, and the logical man
to succeed him is J. D. Rooney of Ocala.
The Star fully agrees with Dixie in its recomendation for a success successor
or successor to Mr. Dozier. We believe that J. D. Rooney, secretary of the Marion
County Board of Trade, is pre-eminently the logical man of the state for
this position. He is, in our opinion, the best publicity man in the state,
he is thoroughly in touch with all, matters to be handled by the State
Chamber of Commerce. lie has wide acquaintance, with men and meas measures
ures measures over the entire state, he is an indefatigable worker and has been a
lifelong friend of the late Laurence Dozier and the two worked in har harmony
mony harmony with thorough knowledge -of each others work. One of the great greatest
est greatest pieces of work before the State Chamber of Commerce at this time
is Ihe Oklawaha river project. Certainly Mr. Rooney is the man to lead
the forces in this battle. Let his friends and Marion and Lake coun counties
ties counties put him there.

Famous Flagpole. 1
The Kew Gardens flagstaff, reputed
to be the tallest in the old world, has
had to be taken down owing to time
and decay having weakened it at many
places In its 150 feet length. Experts
will have to decide whether it can be
re-erected. For over fifty years it ha3
been a landmark in Kew Gardens, and
on the death of a reigning sovereign
and the coronation of his successor it
has borne a specially large Royal
Standard sent down by the board of
admiralty. This year, when it came
to 'be examined by the men who are
hauled to its giddy height by ropes,
it was found to have so many weak
places that it was deemer advisable
to lower it to'the ground, and this has
just been done. The spar is a remark remarkably
ably remarkably fine specimen of a Douglas fir,
and was sent to Kew Gardens by Mr.
Edward Grey, a timber merchant in
the Canadian trade, in 1881. It came

Manners in Russia.
Mme. Viardot, the famous musician,
gives one a poor impression of Rus Russian
sian Russian manners from the account she
narrates in her "Memories and Adven Adventures"
tures" Adventures" of a visit to the Crimea in 1SSS.
Their "want of logic" amused her.
"It enables them to be scrupulously
clean in their persons," she says, "and
yet they are not nice in their table
manners. One substitutes his finger
for his fork; another drinks out of the
cream-jug, a third cools his perspiring
brow with the break-knife."
But, if their manners were doubtful,
their music was divine. "The whole
nation is thoroughly musical, down to
the lowest." And in the matter of
manners, as in other things, Russia
has traveled a long way since 18S6.

Let it be understood, furthermore,

the contrary, they thoroughly under understood,
