THE STAR IS THE ONLY NEWSPAPER IN MARION COUNTY TAKING TELEGRAPH SERVICE
ABSOLUTE PROOF AGAIfiST THEM WAS OBTAINED
PAYIIIG POLL TAXES FOR OTHER PARTIES,
DtFIMCE OF THE
Absolute proof was obtained Sat Saturday
urday Saturday that the liquor men of Marion
county, in their anxiety to win in the
wet or dry election, are stopping at
nothing, lawful or unlawful.
Tax Collector Colbert received
nineteen letters, each containing two
dollars, to pay the poll taxes of nine nineteen
teen nineteen negroes in the Sparr precinct.
As the letters were all addressed in
three handwritings, and were mailed
at the Ocala postoffice at 1:30 p. m.,
Mr. Colbert smelt a very large rat.
The law forbids him to accept a poll
tax paid "by any one except the citl
zen to whom it secures the right to
vote. .' V. -. v
A couple of trustworthy men went
to Sparr to investigate, and in a short
time obtained the following facts:
Thirteen of the men whose-, poll
taxes had been received by Mr. Col Colbert
bert Colbert were seen, and all denied having
authorized anyone to pay their polls.
Five made affidavits to that effect.
One of them had paid his own poll
tax.' -' V.";V- '--'
Three were over age, and do- not
have to pay poll tax. 'i"SV
Two of the men whose poll's were
sent in were not in Sparr. They have
left the county.
All of which goes to prove:
That when you vote in the wet or
dry election on Dec. 7, if you vote
wet you vote to uphold lawbreakers
as well a? liquor sellers.
Mr. Colbert holds the money sent
him Saturday. He will return it to
the owners if they will appear before
him and make affidavit that they sent

Organization Created With that Ob Object
ject Object as Its Aim
Mr. R. E. Yonge has fitted up a
room in the southwest corner of his
building (entrance between the Meth Methodist

Ocala can do namely, to build a rail
road to Silver Springs and equip it j
with gasoline motors.
. Mr. Yonge has a friend with enough
second-hand, 40-lb. steel rail to build
the road. The rail can be bought and
i delivered in Ocala at a very low
figure. The right of way can be used
along the boulevard and very little
grading will be required. Easy time
payments can be secured on the gaso gasoline
line gasoline or crude oil burning motor trucks
and trailers can be built here for
If 100 men will attend and obligate
themselves( to put in $100 each, the
work can be commenced and an actual
start made by the payment down of
10 j.er cent, of this sum.
The few men who have been taking
an interest with Mr. Yonge mean bus
iness and are going ahead and do the
work without much talk.
If you are interested in the move movement,

Jacksonville and a railroad from here
to the Springs, Ocala will have what
it should have had these fifty years
past, and any other place but Ocala
would have utilized the Silver bprings
route long ago and the railroads
would have ere this recognized the
city and given us a freight rate that
would allow us to compete with other
points in the state.

MRS. MUNROE WAS

Saturday afternoon, it was hoped and
believed that Mrs. T. T. Munroe was

was broken, and that it will be many
weeks before she can leave her bed.
' Mrs. Munroe behaved with the
greatest fortitude. With Mr. Munroe,
she was on the way to Port Inglis to
visit Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Alfred. They
boarded the Standard &. Hernando
train at Rockwell Saturday morning,
for Inglis, where they intended to
take a boat for the port. The train
was a freight, carrying its passen passengers

for the train to start Mrs. Munroe
arose from her seat td go from one
side of the car to the other. While
she was on her feet, the engine back backed
ed backed up, giving the train the usual jar
when coupling cars. Not expecting
the shock, Mrs. Munroe was thrown
violently against the edge pf a seat.
While she -knew she was badly
bruised, she did not realize how severe
the. injury was, and on being helped
into a seat by "Mr. Munroe said she
would soon be all right. The train
started, but before it had gone far
Mrs. Munroe was in so much pain
that the conductor, on being told of
the trouble, had the caboose uncoupled

to Rockwell. There a Dunnellon phy physician

A GREAT DAY AT
THE BAPTIST CHURCH
Yesterday was a greot day at the
Baptist church in this city for civic
righteousness. The Sunday c.hool
had an unusually full enrollment. The
lesson taught was the same as that
used in every "Sunday school in the
civilized world "Temperance for the
Nation." There were effective and
instructive posters about the walls
giving facts from the business world,
scientists, physicians, educators and
social reform workers.
Following the session of the school
the pastor preached a strong, force
ful and practical sermon on "God in
the City," this being the second of a
series he is now preaching. The next
subject which, will be presented next
Sunday morning, is "The Grafter."
These sermons are not in any sense
sensational nor personal, they only
tell the citizens of Ocala what they
should do to make of their city what
God wants itto be.

have had money to buy space in the

In this campaign, the Star is giving
the wets their own' medicine, and in instead

Buck up, boys, and play the game.
What did you expect the Star to do
when it said it was going to work for

space to the crops, the roads, the

Do We Brag on Our Saloons
Marion is one of the few wet coun

South. Is it any advantage to her ?
Do we ever advertise it?
The Marion County' Board of
Trade has put out a good deal of
literature in the last few years.
Search that literature .from Alpha to
Omega, and see if anywhere in it,
either in big display or nonpareil
Roman, you can find the line:
"Ocala Has Seven Saloons"

brag, vWe have the only wet town

Have you heard of any move to put
on the signboards of the Central

"Ocala, Only Saloon Town Between
the Ohio River and Tampa Bay"?

When the first half terminated the
score stood 8 to 3, and the further the
game progressed the more pronounc
ed was the victory for the plucky

They deserved success, because they
played zealously and steadily at all

work in past seasons.
Several hundred people witnessed

INFORMATION FOR EXHIBITORS
As the time for the fair draws
near we are reminded of several
things we desire to make plain to
those who have exhibits to enter or
who expect to attend the fair.
First, every exhibitor has a right
to a season ticket for $1, but is not
compelled to buy an exhibitor's season
ticket in order to make an entry. If
you have something to exhibit but
find it impossible to attend the fair,
send your exhibits just the same, for
you do not have to have a ticket in
order to make an entry.
Entering exhibits is usually a try trying
ing trying ordeal to the exhibitor and to
those entering. We have spent some
time planning a system to eliminate
much of the delay and confusion, and
if the exhibitors wilt co-operate with
us it will save them much time and
trouble. The only thing we ask of the
exhibitor is to sit down quietly in
your own home and make out your
entry blank. List things to be enter entered
ed entered under the column headed "descrip "description
tion "description of article," using wording same
as premium list. Under department
number put the letter, of the depart
ment. Under class number, the hum
ber of the class and in the same col
umn the list number. If you should
not have entry blank or premium list,
please send for same, or call at the
office and be supplied. If every ex
hibitor will comply with this request
it will save waiting and inconven inconvenience,
ience, inconvenience, and leave more time for enjoy
We will begin taking entries on
Friday the 19th, and all exhibits must
be in before 4 p. m. Monday the 22nd.
The first day is the big day of the
fair and all exhibits must be in place
and ready for inspection.
If you expect to buy exhibitor's or
season tickets, do so before going to
the fair grounds and save yourself
much delay and inconvenience. Tick
ets will be on sale at Gerig's Drug
Store and the Court Pharmacy.
" Those wishing privilege space at
the grounds should take the matter
up with Mrs. Tweedy, at once as the
space is going rapidly.
Under the" head of "Corn Selecting
Contest" the premium list calls for 24
ears. As this is not in accord with
the agricultural plan we have decided
to change this to ten ears. So those
bringing corn for this contest need
bring only -ten ears.
Be very careful in sending ship
ments by express to divide same if
there is any chance that' your ship
ment might weigh more than fifty
pounds, as the association cannot ac accept
cept accept shipments over the weight with without
out without paying for same the full amount,
and this it cannot do. All shipments
sent over weight will be returned at
once to owners at their expense.
Remember, you can send anything
under fifty pounds free both ways if
you will secure tne proper shipping
tags, which we will be glad to mail
you on request. In citrus fruits you
can send anything up to 80 pounds.
Everything else must come under the
fifty pound limit. You can send a
dozen shipments if you like weighing
under 50 pounds.
