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.

Begins at Eight O'clock this Evening,
And Deserves a Large And
Interested Attendance

rThe annual meeting of the Marion
County Board of Trade takes place
tonight at eight o'clock. Officers for
the new year will be elected, a report
on the work of the organization for
the past year will be submitted,
amendments to the constitution and
by-laws will be submitted and there
will be a discussion of a program of
work for. the future.
"The proposed amendments to the
constitution and by-laws cover the
following subjects: If adopted, one
amendment will change the name of
the organization from Marion County
Board of Trade to Marion County
Chamber of Commerce so that the
name will be similar to the name of
by far the larger number of commer commercial
cial commercial organizations in this country. At
present the by-laws provide for reg regular
ular regular meetings of the Board of Trade
on the second and fourth Thursday
nights in each month. A amendment
that will be submitted provides for
meetings not less frequently than once
in three months, upon dates determin
able by the board of governors. The
purpose of this amendment is to make
it possible to have regular meetings
of the organization on such dates as
will not conflict with some other im
portant happenings in the city or
county, and to provide for the holding
of regular meetings when there is
some matter of importance to place
before the members. At present the
dues of the active members are col
lected monthly and it has been found
that this method is expensive in view
of the fact that, the dues of active
members are small. An amendment
will provide for the payment of active
dues quarterly in advance. Under the
existing by-laws there is no provis
ion covering delinquent members. An
amendment which will be submitted
provides that if the menfber fails to
pay his dues within three months
after maturity, a written notice shall
be sent him and if at the end of ten
days" he still remains delinquent, his
membership may be forfeited by ac action
tion action of the board of governors. Pro
vision is made in another amendment
for the introduction of resolutions.
The tendency of commercial oraniza
tions has been to adopt resolutions on
snap judgment and without due con
sideration. If the by-laws are amend
ed as proposed, resolutions offered at
any meeting in the future will be in
writing, and no member will be able
to offer any communication, report or
resolution unless it has previously
had the approval of the board of gov governors
ernors governors without first making a general
statement of the subject matter there
of. Should any two members object
to its presentation it shall be referred
to a committee to be immediately ap
pointed by the president. After hear
ing a statement the member offering
or the member objecting to its presen presentation
tation presentation may desire to make, this com committee
mittee committee will report the matter back to
the meeting with the recommendation
that the matter be presented to the
meeting or be deferred. If the com committee
mittee committee recommendsthat the matter be
deferred the resolution in question
shall be referred to the board of gov governors

-At the meeting of the Southern

States Good Roads Convention m

Jacksonville last week, Judge H. B

Philips, chairman of the state good

roads .department, expressed himself
directly in favor of finishing the great
.highway from Atlanta to Fort Myers
at once. In Florida, this part of the

route is known as state road number

two. It is not thaj the judge favors
'leaving unfinished the work on other
and connecting roads, but he desires
this particular line completed as soon
as possible. The road north to south
thru Florida, thru Jasper, Lake City,
Gainesville, Ocala and Leesburg, to
South Florida, crossing road number
one at Lake City, with the nearly
finished road down the east coast, will
.. make a system for- all the roads in
the state and those from other state
to connect with. It is the duty and to
tthe interest of South Florida fo give

Chairman Philips full support, thru

its newspapers and representatives in
the legislature, for this plan.
