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.

Representative Dies of Texas Advises
Congress and the People to
be Reasonable
Following a conynendation of Pres President
ident President Wilson's course at Paris by
Meyer London, socialist member of
Congress from New York, Martin
Dies, democratic member of Congress
from Texas, about-to retire voluntar voluntarily,
ily, voluntarily, from public life, -spoke : in the
House as follows:
Mri Chairman, as nearly, as I can
make out, the complaint of my social socialist
ist socialist friend from New York (Mr. Lon London)
don) London) is that the world has not re repealed
pealed repealed the law of human nature. I
had not expected that to occur. The
discussions of the chairman of the
committee on naval affairs : on this
fioor 'rather disclosed the fact that
that imaginary happening is not ex expected
pected expected to be a fact, because he said
we need the enactment of this naval
program, which, I may say, is the
largest in the history, of the world,
because we want to go into the league
of nations with -a bigger stick than
anybody else has who comes into the
That is a very commendable thing,
of course, to go in with a better army
than the other folks. Naturally Great
Britain cherishes the same desire;
likewise Italy and France.
But I did not rise to talK about that
phase of the naval appropriation bill.
I have been under no delusion. All
these phrases and nebulous speeches
here and elsewhere have not deceived
me. I know all the while that human
nature is just how what is has always
been, and will probably remain so un until
til until the end of time. Nor do I sym sympathize

New York. I know he is an interna-,
tionalist. I am an American. 1
f' A Selfish American
I am a selfish American. I believe
in my country, and I want to promote
its prosperity and its glory, I say with
the poet: ;
"This is my home, my native land."
And all of this international social socialistic,
istic, socialistic, maudlin sentiment that is being
propagated over the world is childish
and academic. It is the spawn of those
philosophers who learn human na nature
ture nature on the fifth story and not of those
who have learned it from flesh-and-blood
men. The point" I want to in inquire
quire inquire about is this: Who knows where
we are going to' get all the money to
respond to all these cablegrams and
all of these schemes and chimerical
propositions for the uplift of man mankind
kind mankind ? Every cabinet minister is busy
with pencil and pad of paper showing
how he could spend hundreds of 'mil 'millions
lions 'millions of dollars to raise mankind to a
state of bliss, and the heatl of every
department and every committee is
working overtime devising ways and
means to spend sums of money which
less than a decade ago were regarded
as colossal expenditures. Now,it is
the building of homes for the poor.
Now it is k the purchase of lands for
the homeless. Now it is railroads.
Now it is telephones. Now it is an
expenditure for the "navy of the
United States which, I am told, ex exceeds
ceeds exceeds the expenditure of Germany,
England and France for almost a
decade before the war.. Where are all
these pillions and billions coming
from? Now, let me tell you. I under understand
stand understand every eleventh -man in the
United States pays an income tax. I
anr reliably informed that that is
practically the entire source of our
income looking, to the. future. We
will have no more whisky tax; we will
have no great tariff tax: of conse consequence,
quence, consequence, for it has .dropped to $150, $150,-000,000
000,000 $150,-000,000 in thi-last, fiscal year. I am
told you are going to get it by the in income,
come, income, tax. That is where you will get
the money to huild this navy. Now,
my friends, there are many hard hard-headed
headed hard-headed business men here, and I sub submit

ycur own thinking about this ques question.
tion. question. Where-are you going to get the
billions todo these numerous things?
I believe we have a per capita circu circulation'
lation' circulation' of about f $55. That would
make a total of $5,550,000,000. But
what is $5,550,000,000, considering
the activities f the government of
the United States ?. Are you going to
take every dollar there is in the
United; States out of the pockets of
the people every six inonths? Why,
you ought at least to allow it to go
back into, their pockets again and let
them feel of it three or four times be before

Now, here is what you are going to
do: You take an income tax from eve every
ry every eleventh man, and you buy a, little
boat or a little railroad, or build a
little house for the"joor, or something
else, and the oher. ten fellows say:
"That looks to me like pretty good
business." Of course, "the eleventh
fellow feels badly about it; but natu natu-ially,'

matters of indisputable record that

had a state "census in 1915, but few if

Eight years ago today the Ocala National Bank
openedlts doors for business, in the Northwest cor cor-ner
ner cor-ner of the Ocala House Block.
The deposits on the first day amounted to
$66,111.05. The business was moved from the Ocala
House Block to the new bank building during the
winter of 1911.
. ..'
. : -- r
The Ocala National Bank has enjoyed the most
marvelous growth of any banking institution ever
organized in Marion County. The deposits have
shown a steady increase from year to year until
now on our eighth anniversary we are pleased to ad-
9 I
vise our friends and tthe public that the, deposits
have passed the $700,000.00 mark.
We fully realize that we could not have made
this wonderful showuig had k notbe en for the sup-
port ofva great number of the best citizens of Ocala
and Marion County. Hence we take this method of
thanking everybody who has helped us to build this
strong Financial Institution, and we solicit the ac-
counts of any one who may have business to trans-
act with a bank.

Our aim is to safeguard the funds that are left
-r -- i
in our cares, and to render as good service as can be
given by any bank.

Congress, you are doing more than
expending billions. You are teaching
the American people a doctrine of pa paternalism

their generations yet unborn in this
country. If you only threw away and
wasted and squandered the billions
of money taken from taxation and
business, if you only brought on in industrial

are "not the worst things in the world,
but you are spending billions taken

the telephone owner that the govern government

them, and to lend them money, and
finance their operations, and take
charge of them.
The government consists of noth nothing

gate. aggregate. The government is a pauper
has not a dollar except it takes it
from the people.
We see a strange tragedy here to today:
day: today: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Dr.
Jekyll demands .the people to lend
him money, and Mr. Hyde is telling
the people that he is going to give
them money t'o help them out of want
end poverty. Dr. Jekyll says to the
people of the nited States: "Buy
liberty bonds and war saving stamps,
and if you do not you will have to sign
a yellow fard that you are not a true
patriot." And Mr. Hyde says: 44 We
are going to build homes for the
farmer, buy railroads, telephones
and so forth. Wonderful consistency!
Do you know we need two political
parties in this country, Mr. Chair Chairman?
man? Chairman? We need one party that
stands for the constitution and liberty
by law; that stands for America and
for representative democracy and for
a conservative government. Let the
iadicals get to themselves. The mis misery
ery misery 'of- this situation is, the pitiful
tragedy of politics in America today
is, that we have two political parties
vying with the other as to which can
offer the most to the radical vote and
get it in the, largest quantity. The
republicans proceed to enact radical
legislation, and we democrats go you
one better and advocate more radical
legislation. There comes a time in
this country, with bills like this,
where we appropriate money that no
sensible man knows where it comes
from, bills threatening the industrial
safety of this republic. You have to
have a conservative party to run the
government and hold in check the
radical party-
Voice in the Wilderness
Mr. Chairman, I wish some voice
might cry out in the wilderness to tell
the people of this country that it is
their duty to support the government
end not the government's duty to
support them. The first two funda fundamental
mental fundamental principles of government, and
they are worth more than all the bal balance
ance balance combined, are the protection of
life mnd the protection of property.
Protection of life is worthless with without,
out, without, protection of property, be because,
cause, because, in the language of the Mer Merchant
chant Merchant of Venice, "you may as well
take my life as to take the means
whereby I 3o sustain it."
They have more liberty in socialis socialistic
tic socialistic Russia today than they know what
to do with. A man can absolutely yell
at the top of his voice in a meeting
house; he can shoot, he can do any anything
thing anything on earth except to retire to his
home castle and say: "This is my cita citadel,
del, citadel, and I and my wife and children
are safe." He can not do that. He can
do anything on earth in Russia except
to make a crop with the assurance
that he can gather his own crop. He
has all the liberty that a wild ass on
the prairie has without the mule's se security.
curity. security. What we need in this country is for
the laboring man, the farmer, the
banker, the people ol the United
States, to return to the old-time re religion
ligion religion of Lincoln, of Jefferson, of
Grover Cleveland and the real democ democracy
racy democracy of the country. Why do we not
tell the people honestly and fairly
that it is none of the government's
business whether they have a farm or
not, it is the business of the individual
to depend on himself. Do you know
we are binding jthe hands and the
arms of the people to their sides by
the socialistic enactments? If you
want a man's arm to wither, bind it
by his side and give him no use of it.
I think the most hateful doctrine in
the world is the doctrine of socialism.
I had rather have anarchy 'than so socialism,
cialism, socialism, because you recover from it
more quickly. Anarchy is a good deal
like a violent attack of pneumonia
the crisis may pass in three or four
d-jys, but socialism is the galloping
consumption of the nation, where you
linger and languish and perish away.
I would say to the people who advo advocate,

little earlier; if you are a farmer,
save fertilizer more diligently; if you
are an artisan, learn to. have a. little
