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.

him and want him punished for set setting

Well, sir, it's right funny. We had

members of the Gridiron Club humor
and satire in abundance Saturday
night at their annual banquet.

which is composed largely of Wash Washington

The numerous picketings which
have become common in this city since
women suffragists paraded before the
White House, made the basis for the
greeting of the assembling guests.
Club members dressed in Italian
Fascisti costumes met them at the
doors with appropriate banners. One,
typical of the 'group, bore the ques question:
tion: question: "Mr. President, are you with us or
against us? The hour has come."
The third party skit was the feat feature
ure feature of the dinner. Around a large ket kettle
tle kettle three members dressed as witches

and representing Senators Borah, La-

bllette and Johnson, concocted a

devil's brew, Borah reciting:

"Round the cauldron go,
In new party issue throw,
Knocks of every known condition,
Russian soviet recognition,
Blocs the standpat goat hath got,
Boil thou first in the charmed pot."
All the witches insisted the new

brew should not only have a' kick but
should be composed of kicks. This

ed Borah to soliloquize on the ques

tion whether it were better to stay

within the party and swat the admin

istration, thereby affording the dem

ocrats much glee, or be a new party

man in name as well as in deed. Sen

ator Beveridge then announced his

willingness to join, explaining:

Twice have I switched, each time in

turn rejected,

1 seek some haven now where i can

be elected.'

The act closed with Henry Ford

feeding the fire with greenbacks and

with a farmer and a banker attempt

ing to stir up the brew together,

whereupon there was an explosion and
the party broke up with the organiz

ers blaming everybody and shaking
their fists in each others' faces.

Four men wrapped in sheets ap

peared as the ghosts of "normalcy,

"reduced taxation." "lower cost of

living" and the "international court,"

but when they were unveiled the is issues
sues issues were shown to be still alive.
Gpod music featured the dinner,
with several parodies, one of which,

entitled "Sailing, sailing, sailing

over the three-mile limit," described

the troubles of rum ships. A musical
skit, "The Gridiron Follies of 1922,"

was the central point.

Finally a member remarked that

President Harding had a number of

problems on his mind.
"Take the next Congress for in

stance. I wonder what the president

will do with it."

T have a better conundrum than

that. What will it do to him?"

In the finale the president was ask

What will the president do?"

This was the introduction to the

president's address, a part of the pro program
gram program yearly, but as Mr. Harding was

told he did not have to answer the

questions, and as it is a Gridiron rule

that neither his address nor those of

other speakers are reported, his an

swers remain secret. Other speakers

included Justice Sutherland, of the

Occupying a cell in the city, jail,

very effective in stimulating the mem memory

to recall things that apparently were
wholly forgotten. Recently Judge
Freeman P. Lane, of the municipal
court, has been using the jail to jog
the memory of men who were unable
to recall the names of persons from
whom they purchased intoxicating
liquor. The treatment has been quite

uor. liquor. It is absurd for the accused to
say he can not remember. He simply
does not want to tell. One way to
convict and break up the bootleggers
is to force the identification of the
liquor sellers by men who are known
to have purchased it. A man who is
drunk obtained his liquor by purchase,
in almost every instance, and if he
will not tell from whom he bought the
booze a term in jail should be impos imposed
ed imposed The police and the local deputy
sheriffs, aided by Judge Lane, have
been active in fighting the liquor traf traffic
fic traffic here lately, and have been getting
results. The local deputy sheriffs
have been working especially hard to
catch the bootleggers, and only those
on the inside can realize just how
much work Charlie Sims has been
doing to put a check on violations of
the prohibition laws. Many searches
h&ve been made of which the public
has heard nothing because no liquor
was found. The officers have been up
al? night many nights trying to trap
the bootleggers and moonshiners and
have done a great deal more than the
public realizes.
But there is another phase of Judge
Lane's treatment which is worthy of
especial notice. That is his instilling
into the minds of the "drunks" that
they are honor-bound to hide the iden identity
tity identity of the booze-sellers. That fool
idea has been very instrumental in
protecting many sorts of petty crimes.
But Judge Lane tells the man before
his court that the fellow who sold him
whisky has done himself and his fam family
ily family a great wrong and that he is a
real enemy, and therefore instead of
protecting the bootlegger he should
"turn him up" for punishment and
for the protection of others who may
fall into the booze path. This chang changing
ing changing the point of view is very effective.
Once convince a man that his "honor"
demands that he should protect him himself,
self, himself, his family and society generally
from the law-breaker, rather than
that he should protect the criminal
bootlegger who preys upon the weak weakness
ness weakness of men, and the battle is won.
When all men take this view of the
matter the brazen violation of the
prohibition law and the law against
gambling will be put to an end in
short order.
