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.

There is no doubt that President

feel very differently and act accordingly.

It may be two years more before the

. For it is no holiday summer be before

capture Mexican s'eacoast cities and
drive their troops out of range of

For the last half dozen years, we

have heard threatenings of the yel yellow
low yellow peril. We have repeatedly been

told that Mexico swarmed with train
ed Japanese soldiers and was stud

ded with educated Japanese officers.

TThe radical affinity of Mexicans and
.Japanese is too plain to be doubted,
and if there is no sympathy between
them, it is no fault of Mexico, which
lias handed the Japanese concessions
with both hands, and almost openly
begged for an alliance.
And if Japan ever strikes, now is
her time to strike. With America
tangled in war with Mexico, and the
Panama canal not yet open, she has
the, best opportunity that she. will
have to check the power that will
else soon make an American lake

months from now, when our country

the ships are passing thru the isth isthmian

foolish for a greater nation than
'.Japan to make war on the United

The Star has never taken much

stock in the Japanese scare. It has

seemed unreasonable that these peo

ple who are so assiduous in the arts

of peace, so anxious to make their
way in the progress of the world,
have been deliberately plotting a
conflict with the strongest nation in

the world one which in a few years
. would be sure to crush them under

sheer weight of numbers as it crush

ed the -Southern Confederacy fifty

years ago an enemy much stronger

In proportion and more favorably lo
cated than Japan possibly could be.

So we do not think there is much
use in worrying about Japan, and
if we finish this war with Mexico

without a fight with the Mikado's
people, the yellow peril bogie will be

heard of no more.
We will have a right smart of
of trouble with Mexico. That coun country
try country has the material to put up a
stubborn resistance that will last for
months, and perhaps years. If the
war could be fought out In a country
as comparatively small and open as
that in which the armies of the Po Potomac

ried carried on the campaigns, the power of
the United States would soon bring
It to an end.
It is not only much further from
Vera Cruz to Mexico City than from
Washington to Richmond, hut there

are mountain ranges on the way that
would make the Blue Ridge and Al Al-Ieghanies

But there- was a different sort of
men between Washington and Rich Richmond,
mond, Richmond, and that after all is what
counts in war.
That this trouble would break out
has been inevitable ever since the
outbreak against Diaz began three

years ago. Diaz was a strong man

and kept Mexico quiet. There were

evils in his government, but they

were but little compared to the
troubles that have afflicted his coun country
try country since, -to say; nothing of those
that will result to the United States.

It is more than probable that

some of our captains of industry are

responsible for it all, for they did
not like the way Diaz favored the

English in giving out concessions,

and they financed the well meaning

but weak Madero when he started

the first revolution in 1911.

Madero won, and Diaz had to
leave the country. Madero was no

sooner in the national palace than a
counter revolution was started in
Northern Mexico, mostly by the men
who had sided with him at first.
Madero made good headway against
this uprising, and Huerta was one
of his most capable generals. He
might have held his own, but Feliz

Diaz landed at Vera Cruz and called

the partisans of his uncle, the old
dictator, around him. They were de defeated

hearted kind-hearted Madero spared their lives.
The result of this clemency was

that Diaz went as a prisoner to Mex

intrigued with the discontented and j

started another-revolt. This would

have also been crushed but for the

treachery of Huerta, who was in

command of Madero's troops. Huer

him assassinated. Then Huerta play played

This happened in the last months

of Taft's administration. Itvis cus

other countries no matter how they

attain authority, but the assassina

winked at. President Taf t did not

recognize the Huerta government,

but passed the matter .along to' Mr.
Wilson, who made it plain from the
first that he had no intention of
countenancing the blackest piece of
work that has ever disgraced the an annals

themselves the constitutionalists,
while they were in arms against

that he did not expect war, it is

(Hastings Journal)
Editor Hastings Journal
Some short time ago I received
from one of my friends in Hastings
a clipping from Dixie, issue of March
14, which contained an article taken
from the Nebraska Farm Magazine.
Dixie, in quoting this article, uses
the heading, "Fletchers Rural
Credit System Denounced by Farm Farmers."
ers." Farmers." My Hastings friend sent this
with the remark that he thought it
would interest me. It does.
It is encouraging to Senator
Fletcher's friends to find that the
best efforts his opponents can put
forth are as weak' as is this piece of
petty political chicanery to which
Dixie has. lent itself in this case, for
it must have known 'that insofar' as
this bill, which it finds so objection objectionable,
able, objectionable, is concerned "Only two farm
journals in the entire country have
attacked it, and of these two, the
publication from which Dixie quotes
so glibly and so gleefully, is one.
Furthermore, there is in this attack
so apparently, an object to cast re reflection
flection reflection upon Senator Fletcher's

record and his achievements that it
is, perhaps time that our Florida

farmers be made acquainted with
some rural credit history, which

brought into life this denunciatory

article so joyfully used.

It is boldly announced to the farm

ers of Florida, "Fletcher's Rural

Credit Bill Denounced by Farmers."

Since when is the bill introduced in
Congress; "Fletcher's bill?" Seven

men (six besides Senator Fletcher)
drafted the plan for legislation cov covered
ered covered by this bill. Does that make

it "Fletcher's bill?" Or does the fact

that President Wilson asked Senator
Fletcher to introduce this bill into
the Senate .... make it "Fletcher's
Senator Fletcher has absolutely
no apologies to make for his work
on rural credit legislation, and those
of us who have watched him know
well that every step he has taken
has been a step forward. I know
personally that this bill is by no
means in entire accord with his ideas
as to what, will best serve the needs
of the country,, for I discussed seve several
ral several phases of the bill at length with
him in Washington last December.
He was, however,' onb' one of seven
appointed to provide a plan. He
knew it was more important to get

something before Congress than to
delay, the work of the commission by
too much disagreement; he realized,
which Dixie is not honest enough to
point out, that the introduction of
this bill Into Congress was more for
the purpose of forcing Congress to

act, and it was Introduced with the
full knowledge that it was notthe
last word on the subject and that
the House and Senate committees
would further mould it to suit the
needs of the people and the times.
Senator Fletcher has always stated
publicly and privately that he wel welcomed
comed welcomed suggestions and advice, know knowing
ing knowing that he alone, could not perfect
any plan. He is not tied to any bill
or to any ; measure. What he want
is action f of the financial relief of
the farmer, and whatever he has
done has been done with "this end in
view. He alone is responsible for
the fact that Congress is now acting
on the rural credit question. Let
us not fail to give credit where cred credit
it credit is due.
It seems that even today a
"prophet is not. without honor save
in his own country." A Florida pub publication
lication publication does its best to hamper and
belittle the work of our senior Sena Senator,
tor, Senator, and yet from far away North
Dakota comes this tribute to the
man and his work:
"I congratulate you heartily for
the splendid efforts you are making
in behalf of the farmers of the coun country.

Then put two inches of the natural
sand over it and roll It hard with a

roller. The cheapest way to cover it
is to leave a ridge of sand both sides
of the nine foot strip with the road
grader, or else to distribute it with
the grader over the oil and then roll
it again hard.
The more you roll It the better.
The traffic will soon work the oil
and mix it with the sand. It then be be-comes
comes be-comes like a cinder road. There will
be no chuck holes, no dust, no mud.
It will be easy traveling for autos
and teams.
Such a road should be oiled once
every year.. The cOjSt is so little that
all the roads can be made good and
all the peopic benefitted. The total
cost Is $150 per mile for an oiled
road. A rock road costs $25,000 a
mile. A brick road costs $12,000 a
The asphalt' in the oil furnishes the
binding material for the sand and
with the sand forms permanent
cove of bituminous rock. If too
much oil is used it forms a hard crust
an inch thick with the top sand, with
a loose foundation of sand and will
wear into chuck holes.
The best of permanent roads can
be built by laying first eight inches
of broken rock, rolling it fine, then
oiling it, then cover it with two In

ches of clean gritty sand, then roll
it until smooth as glass.

The broken rock costs $2.50 a yard

and the total cost of paving is about

$10,000 a mile. This road is per permanent
manent permanent and far superior to a -brick

road only four inches thick and with

out foundation but the "brick road

costs $12,000 a mile and is only

It seems incredible that counties
will spend $27 for 1000 -paving
bricks and $12,000 for each mile of
a temporary brick road without a
foundation, when they can have a
twelve inch permanent rock and oil
pavement for $10,000 a mile; or
when they can furnish good roads to
all the people everywhere in the
county for $150 per mile.

behind it, seated, St. Clair. He -was

nrominent nose, wearing a lanx aueue


of thick, gray hair, which was plainly
visible below his three-cornered hat.
He was attired in blanket coat, with
hood dangling down his back. I had
met him once, but it was clear he
retained no recollection of me, as he
surveyed me coldly across the table.
"Well, sir," .he snapped,, "Colonel
Oldham says you bring news. Who
are you?"
"Ensign Hay ward of Fort Hannar."
I answered, bringing my hand up in
