The Ocala Banner was founded in 1883 as a successor to the Ocala Banner-Iacon, itself the product of a merger between the East Florida Banner and the Florida Iacon. In 1890, the Ocala Banner became a daily. Over the years it bore alternate titles: the Banner, the Daily Banner, and the Ocala Daily Banner. Situated in rural Marion County, the Ocala Banner covered farming, business, and civic issues in Ocala, where the Freeze of 1895 had devastated the citrus industry and paved the way for diversified agriculture and the growth of tourism. The most important of the early editors of the Ocala Banner was Frank E. Harris, a veteran of the Confederate army, who ran the paper in the 1890s. Other editors included T.W. Harris, who had published several other newspapers in Ocala, and C.L. Bittinger, who before moving to Florida had served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. In 1895, the Ocala Evening Star surfaced as a rival to the Ocala Banner. Beginning in 1897, it also appeared in a weekly edition, the Ocala Weekly Star. During an address to the Ocala Rotary Club, R.N. Dosh, editor of the Evening Star in the 1920s and 1930s, recalled that the “Star first saw the light of day in the press room of the Florida Baptist Witness”, founded in 1884 as the weekly press organ of the Florida Baptist Convention, a branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. Former competitors, the Ocala Evening Star and the Ocala Banner joined in 1943 to form the Ocala Star-Banner, which remains the daily newspaper of Marion County.

Sentiment' of the Good Roads Meeting Last Night Was
Strongly Expressed .Against the Commission and Its Work

The meeting of good : jads enthus enthusiasts
iasts enthusiasts last night in the ccurthouse was
the most largely attended meeting yet
' held. The court room was packed
downstairs and in the r alcony; even
the seats inside the rail crdinarily oc occupied
cupied occupied by the members f the jury
and bar were taken and there were
. many standing over the and out outside
side outside in the hall. It is estimated that
at least one thousand mcr. and women
were at the meeting or c- me to Ocala
with the intention of a. .ending and
failed to do so because the limited
space in the court room.
Jasper, .Lake City, Gainesville,
Leesburg and Ocala we- i the most
largely represented cc'xr nunities in
the meeting but there were those pres present
ent present from many of the smaller towns
along road No. 2, Micanopy, Mcintosh,
Reddick, Lowell, Kendrick, Belleview,
Weirsdale, Summerfield and High
Springs being well represented.
The meeting was presided over by
Mr." W. T. Gary, who announced at 8
o'clock that he was going 'to delay
opening the meeting a short while in
order that the vistors might have
time to secure supper. The Ocala
restaurants were taxed to capacity
and better by the sudden influx and
the service was retarded to such an
extent that many visitor were not
able to get their supper v, ntil after 8
o'clock. In the period of vaiting Mr.
Gary called a meeting of the chair chairmen
men chairmen of the delegations fiom the va-
, rious counties.
The meeting was called to order at
8:30 and after a short preliminary ad address
dress address by Mr. Gary and an address of
welcome by Mayor Anc' arson, the
meeting got down to business. Mr.
Gary called on the speakers of the
evening in their geographical order,
beginning at the Georgia line and
; working south. In his opening talk,
Mr. Gary outlined the action taken
at the meeting previously held at
Lake City and also at Gainesville. In
his welcome address Mr. Anderson
expressed his gratification in the
number present and reminded those
assembled that they represented
370,000 people directly affected by
road No. 2. He also made the asser assertion
tion assertion that road No. 2 passed through
the sections that paid the greater
part of the taxes that supported the
state highway commission.
Before calling for the speakers of
the evening Mr. Gary read the letters
of Governor Hardee and Judge Phil Philips,
ips, Philips, chairman of the state highway
commission, which have appeared in
the Star. Letters and telegrams were
also read sending regrets from the
Sanford Board of Trade, the Punta
Gorda Board of Trade, J. F. Ashley
of Valdosta, Ga., and others, which
iiave appeared in these columns.
Mr. F. J. McCall, of Jasper, Ham Hamilton
ilton Hamilton county, was the first regular
speaker. He said it was proof Jasper Jasper-ites
ites Jasper-ites were for good roads .when they
drive 130 miles over such roads as
they traveled yesterday in order to
attend a road meeting. Mr.' McCall
gave some statistics to show that
state road No. 2 as outlined by the
state highway commission was di-
rectly connected with roads that
. touched more people than any other
road in- the state. He showed that
where it crossed the Georgia line at
Hamilton county it made direct con connection
nection connection with the Indian Trail, the
National Highway and the Dixie
Highway, which roads run through
states having a total population of
74,900,000 people, or 70 per cent of
the population of the United States.
People coming from any of these
states must come over road No. 2 to
get into Florida. Mc McCall showed
that No. 2 is the logical road to follow
in entering Florida, by reason of the
fact that it is through a territory
never covered by water during, flood
times. Indirectly JUr. McCall was
hitting at the road from Jacksonville
to Savannah, which runs "through the
swamps of South Georgia and Nas
sau county, Florida. Mr. McCall says
we will have to put up a strong fight
if we want the road because Capt.
Hillman of the high commission, op opposes
poses opposes road No. 2. Mr. Hillman was

chairman of the state highway com
mission when it designated the route
of road No. 2 and he said then that

he was decidedly opposed to the route
selected. Mr. Hillman now says that

he is still opposed to road No. 2 and ; fingers on that wild deuce we will not
that he will see to it that the road Is j be able to handle the highway com com-not

says the highway commission has
spent a lot of, money on road No. 2
and if it doesn't go on and .finish the
work it will be money wasted. He
says the road is graded from Valdosta
to Lake City with the exception of 11
miles and that many expensive
bridges have been built along the
rcute. Mr. McCall says he is not
against the construction of road No.
1, but that he is of the opinion that
road No. 2 should have at least 50
per cent, of the attention, money and
men at the command, of the highway
commission, and that road No. 1
should not have it all asM's now the
case. He stated further that the
highway commission was all balled
up in politics and that the last legis legislature
lature legislature got so interested in" pet
schemes that no bill was passed to
specify the roads to be constructed by
the highway commission. It is Mr.
McCall's opinion that the highway
commission was largely responsible
for this sidetracking of the legislature'
so tha$ it might have a free rein with
its state road building. Mr. McCall
further accused the chairman of the
state highway commission of calling a
meeting in Jacksonville to see wheth whether
er whether the people of the state wanted
these through roads built or not.
There was a large attendance at. the
meeting and they were strongly in
favor of building road No. 2. He says
that the chairman of the commission
completely forgot this meeting and
wrote to Gainesville that he wanted
to know the sentiment of the people
of the state and whether they wanted
road No. 2 constructed or not.
Dr. Anderson, president of the
Lake City, Columbia county, chamber
cf commerce, made a short, snappy
talk. He said let's get together now
and work in the present, not to talk
of what has or has not been done but
to work for the construction of road
No. 2.
Mr. W. W. Phillips, of Lake City,
made the longest and hottest speech
of the evening. Mr. Phillips does not
take up his time. in telling of what
has been done or has nof been done,
but said he has come to a conclusion
about this road matter. He said he
did not intend" to mince words in the
least but would call a spade a spade,
regardless of results. He said that
Hamilton and Columbia counties have
begged and pled with the state high highway
way highway commission for a road for the
last four years and now have worse
roads than they had when they start
ed begging. The highway commission
has torn up the little clay road they
had and left nothing but a sandbed
in its place. Hamilton and Columbia
counties turned over all their road
money to the highway commission
years ago to have the road construct
ea according to the agreement made
with the commission and they are
paying five per cent on this money
and are getting nothing for it. Mr.
Phillips is bitter in his condemnation
ox the state highway commission. He
said the commission will pay abso absolutely
lutely absolutely no attention to their appeals and
entreaties. He said that the people
wanting road No. 2 have resolved and
resolved to no avail. He tried riding
over roads paved with resolutions
when he drove to Ocala yesterday and
he did not think resolutions a very
good form of hard surface. Mr. Phil Phillips
lips Phillips asks the united work of the coun counties
ties counties along road No. 2 from Hamilton
to Hillsborough and says that unless
we pull together and pull hard we will
never get road No. 2. Mr. Phillips
says it is mighty funny that the state
highway commission has not heard
vf rnnrT No. 2 when people from all
over the United States are cussing it
every day. He says it is. the most
talked about road in this section and
then the commission has the nerve to
say it never heard of it. Mr. Phillips
says that the highway'commission is

'divided two for and three against
road No. 2 and thejnajority will rule,
j but that politics rules the board and

j that there is a deuce running wild in
the palifics and until we can put our
us and two for us would seem to make
it a hopeless case, but to stop and
consider that we, the people, created
the state highway commission and if
we the creators decide that we don't
like the creation we are strong
enough to destroy it. If we who want
road No. 2 are the majority of the
people we can force the highway com commission
mission commission to act. Mr. Phillips says we
have asked the highway commission
for a road and it has fed us soothing
j syrup to put us to" sleep. He says the
i commission will again try to feed us
soothing syrup enough to put us to
sleep until 1950, but urges that we
have sense enough not to take this
dose of syrup.
He begs the people present to
realize that road No. 2 is the artery
of the state. It will enhance the
value of property all over the interior
of the state if it is constructed. It
will give the farmer an open market
for his: products. It will bjing in
many new people and new settlers.
He begs all the people of central
Florida whether directly on road No.
2 or not to put aside petty politics
and work for the road. He says the
highway commission will spend all its
and time building the road from Sa Savannah
vannah Savannah to Jacksonville through the
swamps there unless we prevent it.
He accuses the highway commission
oi working entirely for the benefit of
Jacksonville and the East Coast. He
says that one of the state highway
commissioners said that if the people
of central Florida did not stop bother bothering
ing bothering him about road No. 2 he would not
give them any roadat all. Mr. Phil Phillips
lips Phillips is for getting into the thing with
sleeves rolled up and' fight the com commission
mission commission to the end. Mr. Phillips de desired
sired desired to have the Ocala convention go
on reco:rd as requesting and desiring desiring-the
the desiring-the whole-hearted assistance of the
Florida Federation of Women's Clubs.
He says if we have the women on our
side we are bound to win.
Mr. Fred Comb of Columbia county,
was the next speaker. Mr. Comb says
Columbia county is once and always
for road No. 2. That we must work
until we get it. It is up t othe people
of cential Florida to stick together
until we make the highway commis commission
sion commission build this road for us.
Mr. B. B. Johnson of'Jasper, spoke
briefly "but humorously on what he
wanted. He favors good roads ev everywhere,
erywhere, everywhere, all the time, but No. 2
first of all. He says he had to hunt
up a preacher and be re-baptized as
soon as he reached Ocala after a ride
over No. 2 yesterday. That his re religion
ligion religion was hanging by the ragged
Mayor Adkins of Gainesville, also
had a few licks to deliver to the state
highway commission. Mr. Atkins says
he heard from good source that one
of the members of the commission
said give Jacksonville a road and he
didn't care whether the rest of the
state got one or not. Mr. Atkins ad advocates
vocates advocates bringing public sentiment to
bear upDn'the highway commission
and to ;go even higher and exert what
pressure we can on Governor Hardee.
Mr. Atkins endorsed the Woman's
Club idea and makes a further sug
gestion that we enlist the aid of the
traveling men. He said they enter
every naok and corner of the state
and can do a world of good if they
will tali and pull for the construction
of road No. 2.
Mrs. McCollum, president of the
j Florida Federation of Women's Clubs,
f made a short talk and pledged the
j support, of the women for road No. 2.
bhe said they are ll.uuu strong ana
I that thev have some influence. She
j said they are the third best medium
of spreading news anyway and cited
'the three best mediums as the tele-
; graph, telephone and tell-a-woman.

with a good line of rich sarcasm di

Dr. Watkins of Micanopy, had an another

commission. He said it was building
road No. 2 and yet the commissioners
say they have no money to work with.
He suggested that the counties which bonded and have money go
ahead and build their roads without
aid from the state, but his suggestion
was vetoed many times during the
meeting because a majority of the
convention felt that we are taxed to
maintain the commission and we
ought to get our share of the benefits
derived therefrom. Dr. Watkins says

build her own roads.

Mr. Willis Powell of Leesburg, said

Florida in the railroad connections
and that they want to make it the
same with the highways. He said
that Jacksonville was once, now and
for all the time pulling for the East
Coast alone and that our fight is
against Jacksonville. He said his
information was first hand. As sec
retary of the Leesburg Board of
Trade he sent over 400 letters out last
fall routing people over road No. 2
into Florida. He had many replies
from all over the country saying that
they had letters from Jacksonville
saying the only way to come into the
state was via Savannah and Jackson
ville, when the roads on the Savannah
to Jacksonville route were practically
impassable. He recommended to all

employment of a good road engineer
and attributes Lake county's road

He said if all counties had a man at

how to build and maintain roads we
would have a system of roads that
would make us independent of the

The meeting Tuesday afternoon at
the board of trade rooms to consider
the new schedule of the A. C. L. be

tween Ocala and Palatka, involving
laying off the Ocala-Wilcox train, and
instead obtaining close connection by

attended. Present and presiding was
President Todd,-Messrs. J. M. Thom Thomas,

the general principle that it is wrong

In June. In its informal fashion, Mill

tramped, to the big forest five miles

had been a picnic to the mountain-top,
everybody making the hard climb ex except

lame, and perhaps a little lazy as well,
and who usually rode an old horse,

conscientiously decorated the table,

letters, the words "Oh, fudge!" The
girls laughed over this nonsense ap appreciatively,
preciatively, appreciatively, but there was more than
laughter in Cherry's heart.
From that moment the world was
changed. Her father, her sister, her
cousin had second place, now. Cherry
had put out her Innocent little hand,
and bad opened the gate, and had
passed through it into the world. That
hour was the beginning, and it had led
her surely, steadily, to the other hour
tonight when she had been kissed,
and had kissed in return.

Alix, deep in her story, did not hear
him, but Anne smiled faintly, and
faintly frowned as she shook her
head. She considered Cherry suffi sufficiently
ciently sufficiently precocious without Uncle Lee's
Ill-considered tolerance.
He would have had them always
children, this tender, simple, innocent
Dr. Striekland. He was in many
ways a child himself. He had never
made money in his profession; he and
his wife and the two tiny girls had
had a hard enough struggle sometimes.
Anne and her own father had Joined
the family eight years ago, in the
same year that the Strickland patent
fire extinguisher, "over which the doc doctor
tor doctor had been puttering for years, had
been sold. It did not sell, as his
neighbors believed, for a. million dol dollars,
lars, dollars, but for perhaps one-tenth of that
sum. It was enough, and more than
enough, whatever it was. After
Anne's father died It meant that the
doctor could live on In the brown
house under the redwoods, with his
girls, reading, fussing-with a new In Invention,
vention, Invention, walking, consulting with
Anne, laughing at Alix, and spoiling
his youngest-born.
It was a perfect "life for the old
man ; It was only lately that he begun
uneasily to suspect that they would
some day want something more, that
they would some day tire of empty
forest and blowing mountain ridge,
and go away from the shadow of Mt.
Tamalpais, and into the world.
Anne,, now was she beginning to
fancy this young Lloyd? Dr. Strick Strickland
land Strickland was surprised with the fervor
with which he repudiated the thought.
This young engineer, who had drifted
already into a dozen different and dis distant
tant distant places, was not the man for staid
little Anne.
"What did you want to see Mr.
Lloyd about tomorrow'. Dad?" Cherry
Interrupted his thoughts to ask.
'The rose vine. What did he say
about coming over. Cherry?"
Cherry remarked, between two rend rending
ing rending yawns, that Mr. Lloyd was coming
over tomorrow at ten o'clock, ,and
Peter, too
"Peter won't be much good!" Alix
commented. Cherry looked at her re reproachfully.

ly l" she protested, ner father gave
her a shrewd look, with his good-night
kiss, and immediately afterward both
the-younger girls dragged their way
up to bed.
Alix and Cherry shared a bare,
woody-smelling room tucked away un under
der under brown eaves. The walls were of
raw pine, the latticed windows, in
bungalow fashion, opened Into the
fragrant darkness of the night. The
beds were really bunks, and above her
bunk each girl had an extra berth, for
occasional guests. There was scant
prettlness hi the room, and yet It was
full of purity and charm. The girls,
like all their neighbors, were hardy,
bred to cold baths, long walks, simple
hours, and simple food. In the soft
western climate they left their bed bedroom
room bedroom windows open the year round;
they liked to wake to winter damp
and fog. and go downstairs with blue
finger-tips and chattering teeth, to
warm themselves with breakfast and
the fire.
Alix rolled herself In a gray army
blanket, and was asleep in some sixty
seconds. But Cherry felt that she was
floating In seas of new joy and utter
delight, and that she would never be
sleepy again.
Downstairs Anne and the doctor sat
staidly on, the man dreaming with a
knotted forehead, -the girl sewing.
Presently she ran a needle through
her fine white work with seveu tiny
stitches, folded it, and-put her thimble
into a case that hung from her order orderly
