MR. BRINSON REPLIES
TO PETER STANLEY
Editor Star: I have just read the
outpourings, of Peter Stanley on
school matters in his district. I surely
hope he feels better and will soon be
convalescent after vomiting up all
hat biliousness that was in his sys
tem I about his school.
InHelling of the heartrending strug

he was elected by his neighbors a
member of the board of trustees at
the last election of trustees and be
cause he could not manipulate matters
bis own way in the selection of a
teacher he got pettish and resigned,
hus shifting all these responsibilities
If all of your readers knew Peter
Stanley it would be entirely unneces unnecessary
sary unnecessary to reply to his wild ravings.
The trouble with his school is not
withwith the county regulations but
with the local jealousies and ill feel feelings

He prates much about the regula
tion that we will not pay a third grade
certificate as much as we pay a sec second
ond second grade nor a second grade as much
as we pay a first nor a first as much
as we pay a state. This needs no argu
ment as the absolute fairness and
good public policy is apparent upon
the face. The purpose of limiting
the salaries on certain certificates is
to hold out some inducement for those
who wish to teach to go ahead and
advance their education and advance
their certificates and get in condition
to earn a larger salary. It is a cor
rect regulation and fair to those
teachers who are not satisfied to set
tle down as soon as they are able to
secure just any kind of a certificate
and go no farther and make no pro progress.

mentions his trustees did come to the
office of the superintendent and do
their best to get him to assume the
authority to lay a county regulation
aside and pay their teacher more than
the maximum salary allowed for
teachers holding second grade cer
tificates. The school could have paid
more had their teacher that they had
selected held a first grade certificate.
The fact is that the superintendent
contracted with the teacher to teach
their school for the sixty dollar max
imum and they have no right of com complaint.
plaint. complaint. Their situation was simply being
treated the same as every other school
in the county even these "high
schools' 'that make him froth at the
mouth to even think of.
School people all over he United
States realize the good public policy
of every county maintaining at least
one strong, vigorous senior high
school. This is not primarily for the
benefit of the community in which it
may be located, but for the benefit of
all of the advanced pupils who want
a real high school education.
This mouthing and hypocritical
stuff about the small school being dis
criminated against in order to build
up the schools of the larger places is
pure mush and unworfhy serious at attention.

DEFENDS BOARD'S ACTION
Editor Star: Mr. Fort said in his
last letter: "It does look like he (I)
cculd point out some legal points in
refutation of his acts." Now, I am
not a lawyer like Mr. Fort is. I only
speak in vindication of the board of
county commissioners and the tax as as-sessoi.
sessoi. as-sessoi. Section 23 of Chapter 5596,
Laws of Florida, specifically provides
for the assessment rolls to be com
pleted by the first Monday in July.
Then the law says in the same sec section:
tion: section: "Provided, that the county com commissioners
missioners commissioners of any county may if they
deem it necessary extend the time for
the completion of the assessment
rolls," etc. The same section of law
authorizes the county commissioners
to meet on the first Monday in August
or September to hear complaints.
Section 24 gives the board the power
to raise or lower the valuations fixed
by the assessor on real or personal
property. Section 26 of the same chap chapter
ter chapter of law says: "In case the county
assessor of taxes neglects to assess
the property of any county previous
to the first Monday in August (not
July) it shall be the duty of the coun county
ty county commissioners to direct the clerk
of the circuit court to make or com compile
pile compile the assessment." The law fur further
ther further says, "Such assessments shall be
legal." Needless to quote further.
The law is plain and intends to make
every man pay his just proportion of
taxes. The board and the assessor
have been laboring to this end. If the
assessor with the information and
co-operation given him by the board
can put on the tax books enough
property that has not before been on
the tax books to hold down the county
millage to what it has been we will
have done a good work for the county.
The school board is co-operating with
us to this end. The last legislature,
of which Mr. Fort was a member,
made appropriations that forced the
board to levy four mills tax for the
state and a half -mill tax for a widows'
pension to assist the poor white and
colored widows of the county to send
their children to school. Mr. Fort said
in his last letter: "Now let them tam tamper
per tamper illegally with my property and I
will show them I have redress in the
courts." He has publicly said that
what the assessor and the board have
done about the assessment of taxes
since the first of July has been illegal.
Now I have never accused him of be being
ing being an obstructionist, but for him to
threaten the board with a lawsuit, if
his assessments are changed, makes
him an' obstructionist, and if all the
taxpayers of the county will do as he
threatens to do, every school house in
Marion county will be closed" next year

to believe, however, that his policy
will not be carried out and conditions
will continue with all true and good

that if the grades are all there and an

is able to do high school work.
It is true that we arranged a scheme

Farming is the principal industry
in this county but it is greatly handi
capped by labor conditions. A farmer
has considerable trouble in putting in
a large crop, and when he does he is
not certain it will be harvested. Our
negro labor has always been rather
happy-go-lucky, but since the govern government
ment government has been paying such high
wages on railways and other public
works, it is out of the average farm farmer's
er's farmer's reach. It seems like when so
much depends on farming, the govern government
ment government should not do anything to ham hamper
per hamper it. The blame is not entirely on
the negroes there are scores of
young white men in Ocala and many
in other parts of the county loafing,
because they can't obtain jobs that
won't make them sweat. At a con conservative
servative conservative estimate not more than a
third of our men are doing regular
work, and we suppose this average is
about the same all over the state.
It's our opinion that calling out the
home guards of three counties on ac account
count account of the strike at the Polk county
phosphate mines is another of Catts'
plays to the galleries. We think that
peace should be maintained and a
stop put to promiscuous carrying of
arms, but we don't see any sense in
calling out troops to do it. The men
composing the guard will lose a lot
of necessary time from their business
to do work a sheriff's posse could do.
We'll bet the sheriff of Marion county
would never ask for troops in such a
case. He'd swear in about twenty
good deputies and' go thru that gang
like a dose of salts.-
