sane and sober basis of needs and hot

' Business conditions throughout the
country are classified in the report as
"fair" and "good." About sixty per

business described as "good." On this
point, the report explains that" "the
story begins on the far-away Pacific
coast, where 'good predominates de despite

much of California, the decline in

all the sum of possible disaster by too

been summed up there seems the
strong likelihood of a crop which will
be equal to all our needs with a lib

"Also in the great plains states the
car shortage evil is' far-reaching and
starts in first with the fact that all

is that they cannot get any more

CAPTAIN COOPER A CAPTIVE
In the Hands of the Bolsheviki
Warsaw, Set. 24. Peasants living
in the territory reoccupied by the
Poles are authority for the statement
that Capt. Merion Cooper of Jackson Jacksonville,
ville, Jacksonville, Fla., a member of the Kosciusko
aerial squadron, is a prisoner in the
hands of the bolsheviki and that Capt.
Arthur D. Kelly, of Richmond, Va., a
member of the same squadron, died
from wounds after he had been shot
down by the bolsheviki.
Both Cooper and Kelly have been
missing about two. months. ;
The peasants say that Cooper's
motor was struck by a bullet during
an attack on General Budenny's army
and the aviator was forced to land.
The American was pursued by .horse .horsemen
men .horsemen of Budenny's cavalry, but he
escaped into a clump of wood, where
later he was surrounded and made
prisoner. The majority of the bol bolsheviki,
sheviki, bolsheviki, according to the peasants,
were for killing, Cooper, but a bol bolshevik
shevik bolshevik who had lived in the United
States insisted on hearing Cooper's
story. After talking to Cooper for
some time in perfect English the bol
sheviki induced his comrades to spare
Cooper, who was taken to' Kiev.
Kelly on the flight which resulted
in his death was the observer for a
Polish lieutenant piloting a bombing

he stepped from the train at Raiford
some four or more years ago and we
have known him ever since. We have

not a tirade against the law that put
him where he is today but a plea to
young men to avoid the paths that
lead to crime and imprisonment. John
Mendenhall has been the greatest
. factor for good in the state farm of
any inmate that ever lived there. He
is an exemplary prisoner and has had
much to do with making a success of
the honor system that prevails there
and that is not only saving the state
vast sums of money but is getting
fifty per rent more work out of the
men than could otherwise be done.

Star has never bemeaned Mendenhall's

we do not see that either entitle him

he does not expect any pardon, for he
does not deserve any. His crime has
put him beyond the pardon of man.

Paul is an example of what" a man
can do and change and there are many
other cases, and even if Mendenhall
was once the criminal he is pictured,
and even if he had not been driven to
desperation by the worst cases of
vampiring and blackmail in the his history
tory history of the state, there is no reason
why he should always remain a crim criminal
inal criminal because he was once one. We
believe he would be one of our -best
citizen? if he was allowed his freedom
and he is too brainy a man to keep in
bond s.-i Progres s.
(The jury, which heard all the evi
dence, believed the match was ap
plied and its belief was of v.' more
weight than that of the editors of the
Star and Progress put together. Many
people, well acquainted with the trag tragedy,
edy, tragedy, and the stage on which it was
played, spoke of the possibility of both
women being tortured in the fire be before
fore before their lives became extinct. It is
certain by the time Mendenhall left
Tampa and the time he was found at
home m Clearwater, he was a fast
worker. It is also a well known fiat
that the human being is one of the
most tenacious in holding to life. A
man with a mortal wound often lives
for hours and some mortally wound wounded
ed wounded can be unconscious, and yet be
brought to consciousness again by the
keenly agonizing torture of fire. Any
competent surgeon will confirm this
statement to the Progress editor. It
is certain that it had rtot been long
after the two women had been striek
en down before the flames of the
blazing auto were wrapt around them,
and there is at least a probability
that there was consciousness enough
to cause great suffering to the dying
mother and daughter before death
Men who serve a few years in the
penitentiary have all of that sort of
life, they want even under the hu humane
mane humane treatment they are receiving at
the farm today, and when such men
are freed under conditional pardons
they are going to be considerably
more careful than, the average citizen.
As to his release being an incentive
to others to commit crimes, this is too
weak an argument to come-'from the
pen of a man as intelligent as Editor
Benjamin and we are surprised at
even his prejudiced mind conjuring up
such a vision. John Mendenhall is a
man of like passions as the rest of
us; he probably loves liberty as well
as any other man, and he. will probab probably
ly probably some day try for a pardon. He
has not done so up to the present
time, but when he does we hope he
gets it and that provision will be
made to quash the other Indictment
that is hanging over him. Progress.
We are glad ; that-; Mendenhall has
met such a congenial friend and ad admirer
mirer admirer in the editor of the Progress.
Perhaps it's our prejudice, which the
editor of the Progress, whom we have
never met, says we have in large
measure, that preventsbur appreciat appreciating
ing appreciating Mendenhall. Very few of the men
and women we know regard him with
other than horror and ; aversion. Per Perhaps
haps Perhaps this is because they are not like
the editor of the Progress, who seems
to have been snuggling up to Men Mendenhall

made the first move we don't know,
but the man should always take the
blame, whether it is his or not. Not
so, Mendenhall. He struck the girl
down and according to orthodox re religion

school class, destroyed not only her

when he dies it probably won't be in

with flowers. And his spirit will be

thru which it will pass without delay,
he will be handed a halo and harp,

which Mendenhall, if he is orthodox,
must teach in his class; the religion
of Calvin and Bunyan and Governor
Not that we believe in it. We
should think that Susie Eliot's fright

beyond the doors of death, that she
and her martyred mother would be led
thru some little gate into a secluded
nook of the City of Gold, there to be
purified by eternal love While waiting
until .the saddened years of the hus husband
band husband and father's life on earth was
done and he came to join them, and
that the soul of Mendenhall, however
repentant, should stand outside ; the
gates of heaven until they were will

x. But of such things we know no
more than the orthodox. What the
law should consider is the years of
life Mendenhall took from his victim
She could have been happy; she could
have been useful. No; man should
dare to say she was lost. Look at
those whom the Salvation Army takes
out of the gutter and the brothel and
makes into good and useful women
who go about doing good. Susie Elio
had not fallen so low; a strong and
friendly hand would have -saved her,
and if Mendenhall, who had aided jn
her ruin, wouldn't help in her re
demption, he had no excuse to cut her
off the road of seeking it elsewhere.
And her mother, too; suffering as
much m body as her daughter, and
more in mind. Years from her life
also Mendenhall subtracted. And
left years too many to the shamed
and heartbroken father.
We congratulate the editor of the
Progress on excelling in his line. He
deserves the devil's own victory meda
for his slur on humanity. We have
read much, but than his article we
have never seen a more cold-blooded
defense of a damnable crime.

Editor Star: 1 I wish to congratu
late you on your answer to Mr. Blow
ers, and the great fight you are mak
ing against the adoption of the bond
I can not conceive of. the idea tha
a great many of the citizens, espec
ially taxpayers of Marion county, or
any other progressive county that has
bonded or taxed themselves to build
roads, will vote for that amendment
which will add additional tax burdens
to build roads for counties which re
fuse to build roads by bonds or other
A case in point: A certain count
has voted down every bond election
for roads, and the "board of county
commissioners oi tnat county in mak
ing up the 1920 budget made no levy
whatever for a county road fund, ye
there has been organized at the coun
ty seat an association or booster's
club and selected the route and the
road to be built by the state with
money the taxpayers of Marion and
other bonded counties are supposed to
be foolish enough to vote upon them
They are ready, willing and waiting
to feast on golden eggs but refuse to
be the goose. Their idea is to ; le
Marion county be the goose.
