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.

Decision of a Brevard County Judge,
Which Will be of Interest to All
Automobile Drivers in
the State
(Associated Press)
Jacksonville, Oct. 27. Members of
automobile clubs throughout the state,
according to reports received here,
are discussing with deep interest the
action of County Judge H. R. Morse,
of Brevard county, who, after declar declaring
ing declaring he would not fine a motorist for
exceeding the speed limit unless it
was proved he was driving recklessly
and endangering other traffic, dismiss dismissed
ed dismissed last week the case against Mayor
Reed, of Fort Lauderdale, brought be
fore him for speeding on the Dixie
Highway near Titusville.
A member of the Jacksonville Au Automobile
tomobile Automobile Club in discussing the case,
declared Judge Morse apparently was
one of those court officials who realiz realized
ed realized that the majority of motorists can
drive their cars at high speed with
greater safety to themselves and
other traffic than others can at a
speed of 20 miles an hour." It also
was pointed out that while the county
laws place a limit on speed,' the judge
apparently did not regard high speed
on straight-aways with no other traf traffic
fic traffic in sight, as a serious violation, in inasmuch
asmuch inasmuch as the primary, purpose of
the laws are to prevent accidents.
' "The holding of automobiles to
speed limits' fixed by 4 the various
counties is ridiculous if the road is
good and other vehicles are not in
sight," said the local motorist. "The
highway between DeLand and Day Day-tona,
tona, Day-tona, between West Palm Beach and
Miami, and the Memorial Highway in
Hillsborough county from Tampa to
the Pinellas county line on the west
coast might" be mentioned 'as roads
upon which the speed limit should be
governed by the common sense of the
driver. It is appr&ximately 22 miles
from DeLand to Daytona, with a
wide, smooth road over which a ; car
may run 75 miles an hour in safety,
yet the speed limit is 25 miles. Be Between
tween Between 5 the two cities there : are few
settlements, only two k turpentine
camps, if my memory is correct. There
is no reason why the motorist should
not run as fast as his car can go if he
has a clear road, and most of, them
do so.
"Twenty-five miles is ; the limit be between
tween between West Palm Beach;1 and Miami,
yet the highway is very broad and is
one, of ..the fastest t in the United
Stales. A car can be operated at 60
or u, miles ,an nour over it witn a
greater margin of safety to the occu
pants and- other traffic than a speed of
25 miles an hour would be on some
of the narrow brick roads in South
and Central Florida.
"The speed limit on the Memorial
Highway from Tampa to the west
coast,a broad 'asphalt block road as
smoothas glass and -with the 'few
curves very long and easy, is 25 or 30
miles an hour. With no other traffic
in the way there is no reason why
the average motorist : should not run
at from forty to fifty: miles an hour in
perfect safety. J'' !' i ,.'
"The action of Judge Morse in de declaring
claring declaring that unless a motorist wag
driving recklessly or endangering
traffic he would not fine him for ex-
that other 'county officials, including
traffic officers, might well consider."
The motorist added that very few
automobilists would operate their acrs
at such excessive speed, even under
the most favorable conditions, saying
he had mentioned such figures mere merely
ly merely as an illustratiaon.
"My idea is," he said, "that a motor motorist
ist motorist with a clear road, who is known
to be a careful driver, should not be
brought into court if he exceeds the
stipulated speed limit by ten or fif fifteen
teen fifteen miles an hour. Traffic officers
and court officials in dealing with
siich cases also should always take
into consideration the ability of .the
motorist. If he is known as a careful

Ben Hooper, Member of the Labor
Board, is Earnestly Striving to
Prevent the Railroad Strike
(Associated Press)
. Chicago, Oct. 27. Ben Hooper, a
member of the labor board, went to
the Masonic temple this morning
where the presidents, general chair
men and executive committees of the
five big unions were in session. Mr.
Hooper expected to make a final ap appeal
peal appeal on behalf of the government for
calling off the threatened strike. The
board's proposal, it is reported, is to
guarantee that neither wage cuts nor
rule changes will be considered until
all pending cases have been disposed
Hooper's presence led to reports
thtat W. G. Lee of the trainmen, was
backing the peace move. Hooper said"
before going into the meeting room
he was making the call unofficially, j
and that he had a vague possibility j
for a settlement in mind which he
would outline to the union men.
There has been much discussion in
union and railroad circles as to the
possibility of the labor board putting
out an order that the strike was il illegal
legal illegal and ordering it called off. Board
members would not discuss the report
this forenoon except to say no such
order had been prepared.
Mr. Hooper remained with the
union officials some time and after
leaving said the strike had not yet
been settled, that a settlement could
hardly be expected while he was at
the meeting. The union meeting
broke up soon after Hooper left, with
the announcement that the five organ organizations
izations organizations would hold a separate meet meeting
ing meeting at 1 o'clock and a joint meeting
at 3 o'clock.

on that day, and inasmuch as he wa3

The Star is afraid to boast on the
immunity of this part of Florida from
severe storms, for the next atmos atmospheric
pheric atmospheric disturbance might make Ocala
a bullseye, but the truth is that in the
thirty years the writer has dwelt here
there has been nothing unduly severe
in wind or rain in this town or within
twenty miles of it.
Storms are said to travel in circles,
like doughnuts, and Ocala has been in
the hole in the doughnut every time a
hurricane has come along. We have
been in several places where such
wind as that of Tuesday was a com common,
mon, common, everyday thing.
If, when the first telephone and
electric light wires were strung in
Ocala, many of them had not been run
between the branches of trees, and
since then many more followed them
with the usual slavish imitation of
custom, Ocala would not have been
bothered to any great extent with
Tuesday's storm. We have not heard
of any substantial buildings suffering
and comparatively few trees have
been blown down. The streets and
roads have not suffered any more than
from some of the heavy summer
rains, of which we often have twenty
in thirty days in the rainy season.
The principal damage done in the
county seems confined to the wind
threshing a good many oranges and
grapefruit off the trees, but not
enough to seriously diminish the crop.
In the latter part, of September,
1894, a heavy gale struck the east
coast of Florida and raged for three
or four days. It is the rule with these
storms to last about three days, but
the commotion one causes seldom
ceases until about a day after it has
passed. This 1894 storm afflicted
Ocala about thirty-six hours. The
wind blew much harder than it did
Tuesday and with it was a rain which
it drove with such force against the
buildings that every leak was pene penetrated,
trated, penetrated, and a good many houses that
had been considered waterproof were
unequal to 'this severe test. Some
houses and a good many trees were
blown down, but the people generally
suffered little inconvenience beyond

being kept more closely under cover

than they liked. Ocala's electric plant
then was small and feeble, and prob probably
ably probably two-thirds of the residences in
town were illuminated with oil lamps,
so fouled wires were among the least
of the city's troubles.
This storm flooded the South Caro Carolina
lina Carolina coast, causing the drowning of
scores of negroes, and did consider considerable
able considerable damage to the seaports as far
north as Norfolk.
Just about two years later there
was another storm that smote Florida
heavily on both coasts. It fairly raked
the east coast from Biscayne Bay up,
but on the west it was felt as far
north as Fort Myers and then went
out to sea, from where it returned to
strike again near Cedar Key. It' didn't
hit that town in full force, tho it did
much damage there, but it tore a mile mile-wide
wide mile-wide swath thru the country clear up
into Georgia. Luckily, it didnt hit
any thickly settled sections which
were easy to miss those days but
whatever it struck, houses, among
them three or four churches, 'timber,
etc., went down. A hundred yards or
more of the railroad trestle between
Cedar Key and the mainland were
washed out. Thruout Florida several
people were killed. This storm doesnt
seem to have been as severe in Ocala
as the one two years before.
The first of these storms didn't
bother the Star at all, for it wasnt
in existence. The second didn't worry
it much, as the office' didnt use elec electricity
tricity electricity at the time, kerosene oil being
the luminant, the type set by hand

The 1896 storm was the last trop tropical
ical tropical hurricane to strike peninsular
Florida with full force until the one
of this week. There have been local
storms that caused Ocala much more
trouble. There was one about a dozen
years ago that put the electric light
plant out of business for more than a
day; however, such a storm nowxould
not so much affect the new plant. But
until there is a better method adopted
than the one of running the wires
thru the trees, every high wind and
heavy rain is liable to shut the cur current
rent current off from some parts of the town.
