farming in Marion county for some
years will surprise many people, but
not the Star, which has been watch
ing conditions for years. Most of the
blame lies on the colored people, who
make up the large proportion of the
farm labor. It is a characteristic of
the colored workers out in the coun- i
try, and some in town, not to work
any more than enough to make a liv
ing. Since the war began, and the
government put wages up to an un unreasonable
reasonable unreasonable height, this trouble has
become more pronounced. Men can
make more wages in three days on the
railroad or the turpentine farms, than
in a week in the fields and truck
patches. Now, if the men aforesaid
worked steadily, the farmer would
have no right to bick. But instead,
men who formerly worked four or five
days or maybe six in the fields, with
rather more than an occasional day
or week's lay off to go visiting or for
some sickness that a white man would
not stop for, or to attend a revival,
or to go to town, or any other reason
or unreason, now work two or three
days in the week and loaf the others.
If there was any regularity in their
irregularity it would not be so bad,
but it has come to the pass that the

The fact that the population of the
state is so widely scattered and that
there are so many rural communities,
only sparsely settled, has made it
particularly hard for the vital statis statistics
tics statistics department to get complete re reports
ports reports on deaths. In view of this and
of the fact that 62 unreported deaths
would have barred Florida from the
area, it is considered a significant
achievement for this state to have
been the thirty-third to standardize
its death race.
Dr. Thompson had the honor of
assisting in placing Kansas in the
area in 1914, and declared he will
immediately start the work of getting
Florida in the birth registration area.

The Times-Union takes a slam at
both the war department and Gov.
Catts, anent the latter's attempt to
blame Senator Fletcher for Florida
troops being scattered before they
were sent abroad. Catts' attack on
Fletcher is simply ridiculous, as any
soldier knows, but what's the differ
ence? When was Catts ever fair to
an opponent? It seems to us, how
ever, that the First Florida Regiment
was badly broken up before Catts
came into office, altho if he had left it
. in the hands of the national guard of
ficers of proved merit it could have
oeen reassembled as soon as war
broke out with Germany. If Secretary
Baker says the Second Florida (aft
erward the 124th) Infantry, went to
Europe intact, he is talking thru his
hat. Nine-tenths of the men were
transferred to other organizations be
fore the regiment went over, and
when the command lined up for its
first parade in France there were
probably less than 200 Florida men in
it. The others, highly trained men,
were transferred as fast as needed
into other commands, and it is a com compliment
pliment compliment to their efficiency that they
were so transferred. As for the
Times-Union's assertion that the
"regular army politicians" made a
whole lot of changes and transfers in
order to break up the national guard,
that is just one of its brainstorms. Its
land cultivated or his crops harvested.
In the last few years hundreds of
thousands of dollars worth of crops
have gone to waste in this county be because
cause because a farmer after planting for a
big crop had to let it go to waste be because
cause because he could not get it cultivated or
gathered. Our colored people are
strangely blind to their own interests
in this matter. Any one of them who
settles down to help a white farmer,
buying a little patch of his own as
soon as he can, and improving it at
odd times, is tolerably sure of being
comfortable and independent in his
old days. But if he follows his pres
ent method he will keep himself a
hired hand as long as he can work and
become a pauper when he can't work.
Such a state of affairs cannot continue
always. Either white people will en entirely
tirely entirely leave the farming of this county
to the negroes or they will import
Italians, Japanese or Chinese. The
latter alternative is more likely. If
colored men would settle down and
work they would make the best of
labor and the sort the southern man
likes best. When the civil war was
over, and the South seemed ruined,
the white and colored men set to work
on the only possible basis to rebuild
their shattered country. The negro
worked, and the white man not only
worked but managed, and so during
fifty years they have put a third of
this nation back into a state of pros prosperity
perity prosperity unexcelled in the world. If they
keep on working that way, they can
find nothing better, but if they take
other roads they will soon be among
conditions that are far worse.

over two years were crowned with
success this week, when a wire reach reached

rector director of the United States Bureau of
Census, stating that Florida has been
admitted to the death registration
area. A state is admitted to the area
when it can show at least 90 per cent
of the deaths reported.
Admission to the area gives Florida
the honor of being the ninth southern
state and the thirty-third state in the
Union to win this distinction. She
precedes Georgia in entering the
death area. She is also the third
largest state in point of territory to
enter the area.
To determine Florida's right of ad admission

"It is more or less of a common commonplace

in numerous trade journals as well as
through the medium of the addresses
of public men this self-evident truth
has been emphasized and relempha-

than that British commerce and in industry
dustry industry are awake to the needs of the
future. As a part of this program a
great deal of emphasis is being plac

or an employe's question but a na

'must sink or swim together.'
"In the matter of production Eng
land is probably better prepared to

than any other belligerent European
country. For one thing the labor

from this huge mass of able-bodied
men only about 350,000 have not yet
ben absorbed in industry. The con

numerous commoditions until. Sep
tember 1 gave the industries of the
country an opportunity to change
from war conditons to peace condi

the period of demobilization. The
so-called unstable key industries are
still to be protected for an indefinite
time by the prohibition against the
importation of such goods under li

"Dumping is likewise to be provid

the Board of Trade is to be equipped
with emergency powers to check

aimed particularly at Germany where

"The depreciated value of the sov
