FROM THE ARMY
The office of the assistant to the
secretary of war, service and infor information

public today calls attention to the fact
that there are over 90,000 officers and
men still in the army to be discharged
between this date 'and October. 31,
1919, who will have to be absorbed in
civil life. The statement is as fol follows:

Gainesville Sun. In the goodness of
his heart he pitied the workers of his

traveling around, but must stay at
home and read themselves to sleep or
stand around the garages, watching
the men there repairing and provis provisioning

But he had not reckoned with
Gainesville. The highborn dames and

The editor of the Inverness Chron

A very worthy clergyman of other

Any action which was meritorious on

the same reasoning, any act that it
was a sin to perform on Sunday would
be equally sinful if performed on a

asked his views on the publication of
a Sunday newspaper. Lest some of
our friends misconstrue our meaning,
and charge us with belittling the
Sabbath, we like the idea of consider

The Sun's editorial has acted as an

to have any effect on "exclusive"

MAKES MAPOLES LOOK
LIKE A BEANPOLE
Bill Mapoles, who as a journalist
and legislator has caused much mirth
in Florida, has accused Senator Flet Fletcher
cher Fletcher of using the mails for personal -purposes,
and drawn forth the follow
ing letter from Mr. W. L. Hill, the
Washington, D. C Oct. 11.
W. H. Mapoles, Esqr Editor and
Owner, Okaloosa News-Journal,
Dear Sir: My attention has been
called to an editorial that appeared in
a recent issue of your paper, headed,
"The Saintly Senator." You say:
"For two years this slick individual
has maintained an information bureau
at Washington at government expense
to keep the people of Florida informed
as to his goings and comings. Every
newspaper and publisher in Florida
knows that not a week passes but he
receives a letter from Washington,
sent through without the payment of
postage, containing something about
Senator Fletcher, what he has done,
or what he proposes to do."
You know, or could know by mak
ing inquiry through legitimate chan channels,
nels, channels, that your statement, above
quoted, is absolutely false. Senator
Fletcher does not maintain an infor information
mation information bureau at Washington, or else elsewhere,
where, elsewhere, at government expense or at
his own expense. For your informa
tion, I will say that there are several
gentlemen in Washington who repre represent

papers, who call at the office of the
senator as they do at the offices of
other senators several times a week.

newspaper representatives is in the
employ of the government, or in the
employ of Senator Fletcher, directly
or indirectly. They are paid for their
services by the newspapers represent represented.

that letters are sent through the mail
without payment of postage: When Whenever

any other government official con containing

would be of interest to citizens of
Florida, copies of such official or de departmental

envelopes to newspapers and others as

Congress for franking such. All mem members

manner.' This you know, or should
know, is not a violation of law, or of
the postal rules and regulations.
Permit me to express the opinion
that your prejudice against Senator
Fletcher is not because you do not
know he is an able statesman, but is
due to the fact that you are indebted
t the governor of Florida, an an announced

Fletcher, for appointment as gasoline
inspector for the state at large,
which you recently received at his
hands and which carries with it a
handsome salary and expense account,

I challenge you to substantiate the
statement that Senator Fletcher ever

in order to repay your political debt, a
great deal more could be accomplished
by devoting the editorial columns of
your paper to praising the virtues of
your choice, rather than filling them

Fletcher which you well know are not
true. Very truly, W. H. HilL
