THE OCALA POSTOFFICE
The scramble for the office of post
master in Ocala is nearly always
funny. It is more funny' this year
than ever. ; "'. :
Postmaster Rogers,"with Congress
man Clark's influence behind him, and
by jio means the ill will of many re
publicans, might hold on to the office
longer, if he so. desired. But "Colonel
Bob" is a democrat and will take pot
luck with his party.
What makes the appointment funny
is, thai of the republicans that have
held the officesince 1893, and those
who are, applying for it now, not one

party has not been known by any but

everybody in Marion and manv other
counties had seen it.
Then McKinley was elected and the
Markhanna republicans slated Henry
W. Chandler, a. prominent colored
politician, for the office. Then Henry
C. Groves stepped in and raked off
the job. It was understood there was
some kind of a bargain. If there was,
Groves did Ocala a service. If Chand
ler had taken the office, he would have
been killed or run out of the town,
and then, in all probability, the office
would have been closed and the peo
ple would have had to go to Kendrick
or Spring Park for their maiL That
is what happened to Lake City, S. C.i

Mr. Groves was a republican until
they heard he had received the ap
pointment. He made a good post post-master,

Mr. Crom came here from Gainesville
to 'serve as agent of the Plant Sjrs-
tem. Pleasant i gentleman, ; made
friends, most of them democrats,

public knew, for his party. "Lost his

from' him by Frank ; J, Ruber. ? Mr.
Huber had been Atlantic Coast Line
agent; was a qu"iett efficient man and
made a good postmaster, ; but few
people in Ocala had any idea that he
was a republican until they heard he
was going to be their p. m. s
If the republican party in Florida
had ever been anything, but a closed
corporation, acting behind closed
doors, Judge David S. Williams would
have been postmaster from the "time
Cleveland went out until Wilson came
in. Judge Williams was a well

popular with the people, esteemed by
democrats as Veil as republicans.' But
he didn't suit the "old guard," so he
was left out in the cold.
Wilson was elected; and Mr. Robert
F. Rogers, one of the, best known
democrats in Florida, took the office.
Now the republicans are in power
again, and a successor .to Mr. Rogers
has probably been chosen. The candi candidates
dates candidates have to pass a civil service ex examination,
amination, examination, but that cuts no ice. The
big man in Florida republican circles i
is D. T. Gerow, collector of internal

the politicians disregard.

and tho "will of thf npntllc of Ocala

master, would be promoted to the of

Ocala postoffice twenty years and he
has been a good and well-liked citizen
of Ocala the same length of time. Mr.
Borden does not 'expect the office. ; He

Next in line is Mr. TV M. Moore,
also a postoffice employe. He has
been in the office about v eighteen
vears. and has also been a good citi
zen. He is a republican but this was
not generally known until compara
tively a short time ago. His positioi
as a bostal employe has, however,
forbidden his making any display of
his political tendencies. Next to Mr
Borden. Mr. Moore has length of serv
ice and the eood will of the people. It
looks like his party should give him
the office but will it?
It may be best for Mr. Moore if he
does not receive the appointment, for
if be does hf will probably be fired
with the, next change of administra

which will stay with him as long as
he can stay with it, and then retire
