Sandy Hook, July 24. An 18-mile
southwest wind was blowing this
morning as the Resolute and Sham Sham-rrock

race for the America's cup.
NO RACE TODAY
Sandy Hook, July 24. 11 a. The
fifth race for the America's cup was
declared off today by the regatta
committee because of the heavy
weather. The next race will be held
Monday. The yachts had started for
the line and were three miles from
the beginning point. A breeze of from
lli and 18 knots was blowing and the
inference was that the skippers did
not care to take the chance of being
dismantled or wrecked 'in the heavy

This was revealed today when a

Although there are 500 running

THE CANADIAN LINE
Ottawa, July 23 As long as profits
from bootlegging are what they arer
and the only deterrent is a fine of
$200 or so there will be big money in
the bootlegging game and it will be
very difficult for the authorities on
either side of the international line to
stamp out the traffic.
That is the summary of opinions ex expressed
pressed expressed by Ottawa officials as to the
situation regarding smuggling of liq liquor
uor liquor from Canad to the United States.
Further, high officials of the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police say that
while they are doing all in their power
to check infractions of the federal
laws in this respect, it is really for
the American authorities to see that
liquor does not reach the thirsty soul3
beyond the imaginary line -3000 miles
The situation apparently is that
from three provinces in particular
there is a large trade in bootlegging
to the United States. These are On Ontario,
tario, Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia.
At the same time a respectable quan quantity
tity quantity of fiery liquor is finding its way
across from the Maritime provinces
and from Manitoba.
At Windsor and in the surrounding
districts the mounted police are car carrying
rying carrying on a constant campaign against
the illegal liquor vendors, and many
have been hauled into court and con condemned
demned condemned to pay fines from $200 up.
One parched Detroit man, however,
is said to have parted with $500 for
three cases of Scotch whjsky, which
reached him via the "underground
route" a shore time ago, so that the
profits in the illegal trade are known
to be enormous. Information from
Windsor and district intimates to the
authorities here that some "farmers in
that vicinity have found it more pro profitable
fitable profitable to smuggle liquor across the
border than to farm, and have let
their farms run to weeds while they
pursue the elusive dollar via the boot bootlegging
legging bootlegging route.
Quebec, it is said, is the mecca for
thirsty thousands of Americans every
veek-end, and automobiles passing
back and forth carry their loads of
human and other freight, bound for
the Sahara Across the border. Under
these conditions, Canadian po!fb au authorities
thorities authorities admit that it is practically
impossible to enforce the stringent
liquor laws at present in force.
.The chief reason for the difficulty
of enforcement, according to an offic official
ial official of the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police, who have under their jurisdic jurisdiction
tion jurisdiction the carrying out of all federal
laws, is the fact that many -people
are not in sympathy with the liquor
legislation, and the securing of con contraband
traband contraband liquor is regarded in many
quarters as an achievement rather
than a disgrace.
However, if the carrying of liquor
into the United States from Canada i3
to be prevented, it is intimated that
it will have to be done by an army
of customs inspectors and police on
the American side of the line rather
than in Canada.

Gambling enters largely into al
the actions of men. With some it is
a sport with some the desire to ob

of gambling is the spirit of adven

crossed the Hellespont Caesar when
he crossed the Rubicon, Columbus
when he crossed the Atlantic, Vasco de

tht cape of storms. Americans took
a long chance when they broke loose
fiom Britain; the men who conquered
for us the west were all gamblers. It

late war, Germany was not a good
sport. .She had everything cut
and dried and gave -t the other side no
chance. But the other side was made up
of good sports since Germany would
give them no chances, they took them
away from her one by one.
But these were all in the day of
waste and barbarism. These are the
days of civilization. The law has
weighed gambling in the balance and
found it wanting, and classed it
among the misdemeanors and the
crimes. We think the law has been
a little too strict. If gentlemen de desire
sire desire to play for low stakes at their
clubs or homes; if negro turpentine
and railroad hands with absolutely no
other amusement put in" their spare
time shooting craps, or any, other an
alogical case, we do not think it
should be considered a crime or even
a misdemeanor. : We do not believe In
gambling in public places, and stil
less so in guarded rooms where cheat

forms of wickedness join in full al
liance with the principal offense.
However,; we must admit that the
law can't discriminate. An attempt to
make gambling correct in one place
and crooked in another would result
in its being tolerated everywhere

son is going to suffer by it.
As for the darkey shooting craps,
it's a hardship on him when white
men having ten times his chance for
healthy amusement are passed by be
cause they are otherwise good citi
zens, and he, tha he may be a good
man too, in his way, and useful, must
be arrested and fined the full amount
of his wages, and compelled to work
several months also, for indulging in
the. only amusement that is open to
him and that he cares for.
However, the negro, for the money
he loses in shooting craps, could buy
books which, if he ever really became
interested in them, would amuse and
instruct him, and take his mind off
gambling; he can develop his mind
and his muscles with baseball; if he
must play cards, he can play for
points, and as long as these amuse
ments are open to him he needn t
complain if the law rakes him up for
gambling. There would not be so
much gambling among negroes if the

show a, friendly interest in them and
try to enlist their desire for sport in
something healthy and clean.
So when you take this matter of
gambling in handnd take it apart to
see what makes it tick you must ad admit
mit admit there is in it more bad than good.
The nations who put the : ban on
gambling, who try to suppress it or at
least keep it in bounds are the nations
th?t have progressed; the nations that
the world leans on. Those who have
ever regarded gambling witti slothful
equanimity are those that are at the
bottom of the scale, soaked in lazi laziness,
ness, laziness, steeped in crime and wallowing
in filth. Gambling with these people
is denatured of its only goodness the
spirit of adventure and the willing willingness
ness willingness to take a chance and give the
other fellow a fair show.
Ocala has been greatly cursed with
gambling. Let anyone who has lived
here, for twenty-five years look back
ovei them and count the tragedies it
has caused, the business enterprises
it has wrecked, the homes it has
broken up, including several it has
draped in mourning. Next to liquor,
it has caused more trouble than any
other variety of crime. It yet flour flourishes
ishes flourishes among us. It has been more
active in the last few months than
ever before. We deplore it; we know
it is doing our city great harm abroad
as well as at home; yet we let it live
and flourish, except occasionally, as
the other night, when some officer has
the good luck not only to go over the
top of the defenses of the gamblers,
but to crawl under the barbwire en entanglements
tanglements entanglements of the law.
The great majority of the people of
Ocala are opposed to gambling. They
know the men who are responsible for
it and where they work ? Then why
do they put up with it? Because they
are afraid of the few men who carr.y
The people of Ocala can stop
gambling, except in the smallest
nooks and corners, if they will. They
can't prevent an occasional crap or
social game. But they can put an end
to regular gambling dens and the vir virtual
tual virtual robbing of unwary strangers. All
they have to do is to get together and
assert themselves, instead of expect expecting

Editor Star: While, a3 you are
probably ware, your humble servant
does not always agree with you, yet I
cannot help but admire your efforts
in many instances to bring about the
triumph of decency and of. law and
crder in this city and the county.
, For many years Ocala has proudly
proclaimed herself the "Brick City"
of Florida, but to some she is justly
entitled to a change of name, for k
apprehend there is not another town
in the state of equal population which
C2.n boast (?) of such a "sucker" list.
Give a man about equal parts egotism
and avarice as prominent factors in
his make-up and he i3 ready for the
"harpoon." But to those we now have
another class pushing themselves to
the front as a menace to right and
good government, and these might be
termed the "softies" the ones who
fail to the "sob stuff," as you call it,
as has recently been seen in the case
of the Tuckers. But, it is probable you
are over hard in your criticisms of
the parding board of the state. It has
always been my understanding this
body does not act unless at the in instigation
stigation instigation of some person or persons
other than the convicted one and his
kin, therefore it occurs to me it would
not be a bad plan on your part, a3
you are evidently desirous of advis
ing the people of the truth upon which
to base their actions when the proper
time comes, to ascertain from the
board what "influence" it was which
brought about the pardon of Tucker,
and let us know the true facts.
In my lowly judgment there never
has been in this county two thieves
who received a fairer trial than did
Duff and Tucker, but justice has at
last been totally outgeneraled in the
Tucker case, while Duff is probably
not living without hope. Both had as
able counsel as was to be found in
their defense two or our best crim criminal
inal criminal lawyers supplied them with a
peg upon which to Hang any sort of a
defense, or proposition which might
be of any value to avoid a verdict of
guilty or temper the severity of the
blast to these shorn lambs in event of
conviction. Doubtless they realized
there was little danger to the "ladies
involved, therefore these two doves
sought to assume the full burdens of
everything, while the "males" I will
not honor them with the appellation
of "men" did their best to aid in this
"theory of the case," as the lawyers
say. And all this was done notwith notwithstanding,
standing, notwithstanding, in the Tucker case at least,
there "was a presumption of the law
that the husband was the only guilty
one of the pair, upon which the wife
might have based an attempt to make
her escape and secure an acquittal
had she seen fit to go to trial instead
of entering a plea of guilty.
" The fact is, as I saw it. Tucker was
the one principally involved in every
event which took place in Ocala, for
it was Mr. and Mrs. Tucker, if you
please, who seemed to have had h
hand in no less than four shoplight shoplight-ings,
ings, shoplight-ings, while Duff and his "lady," as 1
now recollect, were connected with
but one Duff had been convicted of
the affair at Zuber, the "ladies" had
bcth pled guilty, while Tucker .had
not been convicted of anything, nor
had any of them been indicted for
anything in Ocala, other than the
"incident" at Rheinauer's; therefore
Tucker was to go free unless convict
ed of this last mentioned affair and
this does not seem to have had suf
ficient influence on the powers that
be as to keep him from going free to
boast of persecution rather than hang
his head m shame because of prosecu
tion. v- .;
To my mind there has been some
excellent generalship displayed on be
half of both the Tuckers. Had Mrs
Duff shown the same good, judgment
and poise as Mrs. T. she would un
doubtedly be at large and in a posi
tion to do something of value toward
securing the release of her husband,
but her expressions of desire to re
main with him and by him "through
thick and thin" as it were, as well as
her failure to tell the truth as the
court thought, at the most critica
stage in the proceedings, has enabled
justice to claim something for the
cause of law and order for the time
being. V L. N. Green.

colonel's early inquiries.

Restoration of Stonehenge Has Ra-

The restoration of Stonehenge has

There are Indications that the entire
monument was surrounded by a cir
cle of at least 40 stones, not one of
which remains today.
The office of works, in conjunction
with the society of antiquaries, is
overhauling the monument, replacing
the fallen stones and exploring the
site. Excavations have revealed sock
ets for a number of stones that are
no longer in existence, but history
cannot account for their absence.
During the excavations a number
of hammer stones, chisels and burnt
bones were found, also many articles
of more modern origin, scraps of Ro
man remains, pennies and farthings of
varying date even up to the present
time. The places where these coins
were found are a problem In them themselves.

A new map of the monument is to

excavations, the discovery of the orl
