THE BOND AMENDMENT
Editor Star: I have been requested
to give my views on the pending road
bond amendment to be voted -on at the
November election. In giving my
views on this subject, nothing is in intended
tended intended to cast reflection on any who
may differ in opinion with me nor to
criticise any argument heretofore
We must first consider others as
honest in their opinion as we are on
any public question that may come
up for consideration and action.
We are living in a progressive per period
iod period of the world. Motqr vehicles have
taken the place of horse drawn ve vehicles
hicles vehicles for pleasure, and in a great
measure have taken the place of the
mule in carrying loads for the farmer
and business man, hence the owners
and manufacturers of trucks and au automobiles
tomobiles automobiles demand ; permanent good
roads. Before their day, we of Mar Marion
ion Marion county- boasted of having the
greatest mileage and best system of
good roads (lime rock) of any county
in the state; not so now.
Under the primary system of nom nominating
inating nominating candidates, the next legisla legislature
ture legislature will be as good in every sense as
any legislature we have had in twenty
years T have confidence to believe
that they would no more entertain a
pa-oposal to issue twenty mililon dol
lars of state road bonds, were the
amendment to pass, than they would
to pass a law to appropriate twenty
million dollars to be gathered from
the, taxpayers for road purposes. They
have the right under the constitution
as it now stands to enact laws and
maks appropriations, even to build
roads, hence the two-mill road tax
levied for state good roads, that had
to be done to meet the federal appro
priation to Florida for road, purposes.
bo it can and will be done again and
must of necessity be done by. issuing
bonds or levying a direct tax to create
a road fund. V 4
The federal appropriation to Flor
ida must be met fifty-fifty or we lost
the appropriation. Then the question
is, which would be best for the state;
for the next legislature to issue two
and a half million dollars in bonds to
meet the federal appropriation for
the next two years or to levy a direct!
tax on the state to raise the two and
a half million doflars.
At every regular biennial session of
the legislature this two and a half
million dollars will; have to be raised
by bonds or direct taxation, provided
the bond amendment carries so that
bonds can be issued.
My opinion is to raise the money to
meet the bonds if issued or to pay the
tax would be least oppressive to the
state and deal out justice to 'all -would
be for the next legislature to raise
the tax on gasoline from one-eighth
of a cent on the gallon to one cent on
the gallon. According to the report
of the commissioner of agriculture the
one-eighth of a cent on the gallon of
gasoline for the year ending August
31st, 1920, raised over seventy-six
thousand -dollars. One cent a gallon,
or eight times the above, would raise
over six hundred and nine thousand
dollars and .for every two years would
raise over one million, two hundred
and eighteen thousand dollars.
We note that just as many automo automobiles
biles automobiles are daily moving with gasoline
selling at 36 cents per gallon as were
when it sold for 12 cents per gallon.
The license en -motor vehicles should

ing. kicking. Then the man who runs his Ford
car 50 miles per week would not have
to pay as much tax for the use of the
good roads as the man who ran his
Ford 500 miles per week for both
pleasure and profit.
It might be said this, system of
raising money for good roads, would
be a little hard on those who operate
other machinery by gasoline.' The an answer
swer answer would be no harder for them
than to pay an ad valorem tax on the
value of their property.
I am firmly of the opinion that if
we ever have a complete system of
good roads m Florida, the state, will
have to buiid them. In my opinion we
made a mistake to vote half a million
dollars in bonds to help build one road

ROADS IN POLITICS
Some people declare that the state
road department is not in politics.
Maybe not, but it seems that politics
is in everything. The Times-Union
The Metropolis of Friday contained
two news items that were uninterest uninteresting
ing uninteresting appearing as they did on different
pages but that became interesting
when brought together. One was the
comment of M. M. Smith, chairman of
the state road department on the re report
port report that Gov. Catts would not reap reappoint
point reappoint him when his term, expired as
it will next month. Mr. Smith said
that politics and not his own record
was the ruling factorand added:
"It will be a sad day for the peo people
ple people of Florida whenever the road de department
partment department is dragged into the mire of
politics. There hasn't been one scratch
of,' politics in the department since its
existence. The present board has
studiously avoided getting' into it."
On another page was a statement
of what another member of this
board, that according to the' chairman
has studiously avoided getting into
politics, was up to. The story says:
"No better investment can be made
by the men and women of this state
than to vote in favor of the proposed
constitutional amendment for. good
roads at the November election," said
Ed Scott, of Arcadia, a member of the
state road department while in Jack Jacksonville
sonville Jacksonville Friday. Mr. Scott held a
ccnf erence : with F. O. Miller, chair chairman
man chairman of the Florida state highway
bonding campaign committee, H. II.
Richardson, campaign 'manager of
that organization, and other good
roads enthusiasts, declaring that he
came to Jacksonville as a citizen of of-Florida
Florida of-Florida to help the cause along."
Mr. Scott should have kept out of
politics at least for one day while Mr.
Smith was making this statement of
the non-political status of the board.
But we. will have to go outside the
columns of the Metropolis to take an another
other another pep at Mr. Smith. We find him

If this sort of thing is studiously

has a queer idea as to the effect of
the submission by the legislature to j
the people of a proposed constitution-!
al amendment. When the legislature
submits it, it is through. It ; is then
up to the people and it would 'be
grossly presumptuous and grossly
improper in-the legislature to tell ,the
people what to do,
But as a matter of fact the state
rosid department is in politics up to
the neck.' It is fighting for this bond
amendment and snarling like a dog
gnawing a bone at anyone who inter interferes
feres interferes -with its plans. ; If this-bond
amendment is defeated the state in
the long run; will raise more money
for roads than if it is adopted for it
will pay out nothing for interest, but
future boards will handle the money
and get credit for what is' done. If
the state planks down five million dol dollars
lars dollars a year to this board, without any
directions as to "the interest the
bonds shall bear; without any com command
mand command to sell them for not less than
par, this board will be able to do as
it pleases. It reports biennially so it
is under ne restraint except the fact
that it is required to tell the people
what it had done not less than two
years after it did it.

This board was created to build
roads and see that in their construc construction
tion construction the people get their money's
worth. It was not created to tell th&
people how much to spend on roads
or how to get the money and when it
does thi3 it plunges into politics in
such a way as to deserve to lose the
confidence of the people.
A dispatch from Los Angeles says
that Southern negroes may go in
large number into Southern Califor California
nia California to displace Asiatics. We think,
the move will be good for both the
negroes and California. It will be a
good thing for the negroes, and we
think the Calif ornians will prefer
them to Asiatics as workmen. The
negro is not as good a workman as a
Chinee or Jap, but 999 "times out of
a thousand he 13 100 per cent Ameri American,
can, American, and what money he makes he
doesn't save to take across the Pa Pacific,
cific, Pacific, but spends on the spot.' We see
some papers and hear some people
talking about the desirability of Asi Asiatic
atic Asiatic labor. We are inoculating our ourselves
selves ourselves with leprosy in admitting Asi Asiatics
atics Asiatics to America, and it will be very
much better to go to war with them
than allow it to continue. Exclusion
of the Asiatics from America is a
policy on which Southern people and
the people of the Pacific should get
right together. It's their race prob
lem and is more difficult than
Some of the Star's friends have
been poking fun at it because it did
not announce that a still was recently
found in a house belonging to Lou
Green. We did not know the house
belonged to Lou until several days
after the distiller had been tried. And
you can bet that Lou didn't know
tbere was any still there until the of officers
ficers officers found it. We took the report
from the. sheriff's office and the coun county
ty county judge, who simply informed us of
the man's arrest, what fr and the re result
sult result of the trial. That is all they ever
(tell unless we ask move questions.
Probably our critics will notice we
don't give the names of the landlords
of moonshiners and moonsellers, al although,
though, although, we don't think any moonshiner
yet caught, with the exception of one
out several miles northwest of town,
was living in his own house. The rea reason
son reason should be obvious to all people old
enough to vote. As long as a man
pays his rent, his landlord is not likely
to go into his house, unless requested.
Fact is, a landlord ha,3 no more right
in a, tenanrs house than any other
man, as long as the tenant pays his
rent and makes no disturbance. Lou
Green hasn't been in the least mercen mercenary
ary mercenary about this, moonshine business."
The rent of that one 'small house
meant little to him. If he had known
his tenant had a still, he would have
notified the officers pronto. And he
would not have cared if his ownership
bad been published. If the Star ever
find out that a still is in operation in
a house well known to be disorderly,
it will give the name of the owner at
once. Otherwise, we might do in injustice

Q. Will Harding comply with Cox's
demand to express himself on. the
slush-fund scandal ?
A. Although it is i against Senator
Harding's policy to express himself
about anything that has happened

way, on this subject in a speech to a
delegation of his colored brethren,
when he told them: "Citizenship is

The tactics which the national re republican
publican republican party is using in this 1920
presidential campaign are the tactics
used in Michigan to elect Senator
Truman H. Newberry.
It was the election of Newberry by
the wholesale use of money which
gave the republicans the one vote
needed to organize and control the
United States Senate and put Lodge
at the head of the foreign relations
committee, with the subsequent de defeat
feat defeat of the treay as a result. It was
the election of Newberry, tinder such
conditions, so Governor Cox charges",
that put the Senate oligarchy in po
siticn to nominate one of their own
members for president. C V
The republicans may- have learned
nothing from the Newberry election,
but the people of the United States
have. Politicians can not "Newberry "Newberry-ize"
ize" "Newberry-ize" the United States.
Dudley S. Blossom of Cleveland,
Ohio, one of the republican money
diggers, testified recently before the
Senate campaign fund investigating
committee. He told the committee
that his county's quota was $400,000,
which is the amount Governor Cox
stated in his Pittsburg speech was
Mr., Blossonr further testified that,
although he never saw form 101, the
plan of. campaign in Cleveland was
modeled exactly after the plan set out
in that document, which republican
officials say was rejected. The testi testimony
mony testimony of John A. Kelly, the chief
money digger of Ohio, and of Hamil Hamilton
ton Hamilton S. Kean, republican national com
mitteeman from New Jersey, was to
the same effect. The quotas for their
states were the quotas on Governor
Cox's list. t
There seems to be a great many
