Dreadful Loss of Life When Connemara
Retriever Went Down
MAY HAVE BEEH ABOARD SO FAR AS
London-, Nov. 4. It is feared that
300 persons perished when the Lon
cion ana iNortnwestern passenger
steamship Connemara collided with
the steamship Retriever in the Irish
channel last night.' Both vessels sank.
As far as is known there is only
one survivor. The Connemara was
bound from Greenore for Holyhead.
The railway company is unable to say
whether there were any Americans on
board the Connemara, which seldom
carried saloon passengers.
The marine superintendent of the
. London & Northwestern railway said
aa far as he knew there were only
fifty passengers on the Connemara.
The crew numbered thirty-two.
A Lloyds dispatch from Belfast said
the Connemara and Retriever collided
off Carlingford Lough, an inlet on the
Irish coast between' Down and Louth
counties. The Retriever was inward
bound. Some bodies have washed
ashore, on county Downs coast.
The Connemara and Refriever col collided
lided collided just outside Carlingford bar
last night during one of the worst
gales ever known in the Irish- Sea.
Both vessels sank immediately. It is
kvstimated that one hundred people
perished. There was only one survi
or from the Connemara. It is vir virtually
tually virtually certain there were no Ameri Americans
cans Americans aboard. The entire crew of the
Retriever was lost.
LOYALTY TO THE
To Hon. P. H. Nugent, Democratic
Nominee for Clerk.
Dear Sirr My communication to
the editor of the Star was not by me
intended as a personal attack on you
but was intended to discuss democrat democratic
ic democratic party loyalty to the straight dem democratic
ocratic democratic ticket, including W. V. Knott
and J. P. Galloway, democratic nomi nomi-ness
ness nomi-ness for governor and sheriff, re respectively,
spectively, respectively, a part of which, including
yourself, has opposition, but I see it
has drawn from you a rather evasive
reply on the points on which myself
and many of our fellow democrats de desire
sire desire information. That is, are you
loyal to the straight democratic
ticket, which of course includes W. V.
Knott and J. P. Galloway? Are you
supporting the straight democratic
ticket and will you on November 7th
vote for W. V. Knott and J. P. Gal Galloway,
loway, Galloway, or will you vote for bolters
Catts and Adams? I put these ques questions
tions questions to you squarely and as a dem democratic
ocratic democratic nominee you can not honor honorably
ably honorably avoid or evade them ? Are you,
a democratic nominee, lending your
support to secure the election of the
saright, full democratic ticket? If so,
ir what manner?
I have asked .myself these ques questions
tions questions as to your party loyalty many
tunes since the primary, not with in intent
tent intent to do you an injury, but in an ef effort
fort effort to guide myself in the full and
complete discharge of my duty to the
democratic party, and I came to ask
myself these questions because, about
the month of August, and about the
middle of the Knott-Catts contest, I
was in your office on business and
while there I heard you state, in sub substance,
stance, substance, to Mr. G. C. McClure, who
was then intending to support Mr.
Catts in his independent campaign
for governor, that you"- "would not
vote for W. V. Knott if he were de declared
clared declared the democratic nominee for
governor." I heard you make this
statement and there is no hearsay
about it! If I doubt or question your
party loyalty, have I not your words
to support that doubt?-
j Shortly after the primary, and I
am personally satisfied before your"
Admitted contribution to. volter Catts
campaign fund, Mr. Catts publicly
declared and it became at once com common

Florida that Mr. 'Catts wpuld be become

a democratic nominee, should con contribute

didate candidate who had publicly declared that
he, regardless of laws and order and
in violation of his obligation to the
democratic party "by which every
clean man should be bound," would
be an independent candidate in the
general election against your fellow
democratic nominee and your declara
tion that you would not support Knott
if the nominee, is a large matter; and
matters much to the loyal democracy
of Marion county! You say that you
know what you are, have been and
will be on November 7th. Kindly tell
us what you were in August when you
had the conversation with McClure
and stated that you would not vote
for Knott if he were declared the
lawful democratic nominee, and by
which utterance is your party loyalty
to be judges? My conception of a
loyal democrat is one who from nomi
nation to election lends his active
support to the election of the straight
democratic ticket and who at "least
remains quiet and refrains from as assisting
sisting assisting in the spreading of dissen-
tion among fellow democrats as you
were doing in your conversation with-,
McClure encouraging him to bolt the
party with Catts and Adams! I am
quite certain that this was after
there had been some "recount" and
after Catts has commenced his inde independent
pendent independent campaign and let it be known
that he would be a candidate regard regardless
less regardless of his party obligations "by
which every clean man should be hon honorably
orably honorably bound" and regardless of
whether ; he was declared the demo democratic
cratic democratic nominee or not. :
I participated in the democratic
primary with you and other demo democratic
cratic democratic candidates and we gave to our
fellow candidates and to our fellow
democrats our implied pledge that we
as "clean" men "should be honorably
bound" to abide its result; that we
would support and vote for its nom nominees,
inees, nominees, unless some nominee by acts of
disloyalty to the democratic party or
any of its lawful nominees, should
forfeit that right to our support. Yet
you say that you have made Galloway
no promise. The majority of the state
democratic ; executive committee, ; the
committee elected by the majority of
the democratic party of Florida has
publicly called upon every loyal dem democrat
ocrat democrat and upon every democratic
nominee to rally to the support of the
democratic party in this its hour of
need, appealing to you democratic
nominees, whom the party has hon honored
ored honored with gifts of public office, to ral rally
ly rally to the support of the straight dem democratic
ocratic democratic ticket to secure not for some
individuals success on Nov. 7th, but
to secure the success of the demo democratic
cratic democratic party, and you, a democratic
nominee, claiming yourself a loyal
democrat, with democrats bolting the
straight ticket right and left, must
stand convicted of disloyalty to the
democratic party and its lawful nom nominees,
inees, nominees, for you state over your signa signature
ture signature that "I have simply stayed out
of the Adams-Galloway fight and the
Catts-Knott fight"; that "I have never

in town late yesterday afternoon and
bought a five-passenger Maxwell car

not renew it without weakening his

Nominee for County Judge.
Dear Sir: My communication ad addressed
dressed addressed to editor of the Star in dis discussing
cussing discussing a pending political principle
that of party loyalty has drawn from
you a rather personal comparison of
the depth of our respective loyalty to
the democratic party and its nomi nominees.
nees. nominees. That is not the issue that 1
sought to discuss with the editor of
the Star. As compared with the prin principle
ciple principle involved, the question-of our
respective opinions and acts is a small
matter and hardly worth discussion
before the party or the public, and
while you seem inclined to make the
discussion one of personalities and not
of principles and thereby dodge the
issue, "Are you and your fellow dem
ocratic nominees loyal to the straight
democratic ticket" I am willing that
the public should be informed, should
compare and then draw their own con
elusions as to the depth of our loyalty
to the straight democratic ticket and
to the democratic party.
Myself and other democratic voters
have been endeavoring to ascertain
just where you and the other demo democratic
cratic democratic nominees stood upon this
question and, without personalities,
they are matters that we as demo democrats
crats democrats have the right to ask you and
know of you and your fellow demo
cratic nominees, as our democratic
nominees, and we are glad to have you
publicly state that on November 7th
you expect to vote the straight demo
cratic ticket from Woodrow Wilson
down, which of course includes W. V.
Knott and J. P. Galloway, straight
democratic nominees for governor and
sheriff respectively, but we 'regret
that it Was necessary for one of us to
have to resort to a public newspaper
discussion and controversy to get
from you, a democratic nominee, this
Now let us compare the depth of our
party loyalty. I was a participant in
the recent democratic primary, both
as a candidate and as a voter and by
participating in that primary I im impliedly
pliedly impliedly gave to my fellow candidates
and to my fellow democrats my
solemn promise that I would abide the
result of that party primary as estab
lished by the lawful constituted au
thorities of our party and of our state
the state democratic executive com committee
mittee committee and the courts of the state of
Florida; that I would support all dem
ocratic nominees loyal to the straight
democratic ticket and that on Nov. 7,
without scratching or bolting, would
vote for all democratic nominees, re
serving unto myself only that inher inherent
ent inherent right of every man to withhold his
vote from any nominee of his party,
whom the elector is honestly convinced
is disloyal to the straight party ticket
or to any of his fellow nominees.
That constitutes my obligation to the
democratic party, and it bears espe
daily upon me and should bear espe
cially upon you both of whom have
been more than once honored by the
gift of public office at the hands of the
Since the primary in June, I have
been actively at work to secure the
election of the straight democratic
ticket, including W. V. KnotJ; for gov governor
ernor governor and J. P. Galloway for sheriff,
and where I have come in contact
with my fellow democrats who are or
were intending to bolt the democratic
party and vote for candidates other
than the straight democratic ticket, I
have endeavored in my feeble way to
get them to see the error of their
judgment and to remain steadfast and
loyal to the democratic uarty and its
straight ticket. I have refrained from
contributing "to. any independent's
election either by contributing mon
ey or rendering him any other assist
ance or encourageemnt. That is my
conception of a loyal democrat! What
The state executive committee of
the democratic party has called upon
all democratic nominees throughout
the state to rally to the election of the
straight democratic ticket, by giving
unto that ticket in full your active
support and assistance as well as your
vote on November 7th. What have
you or any of your fellow democratic
nominees done to contribute to that
end ? I have been about much lately
and if one of you have lifted up your
voice to the assistance of any of your
fellow democratic nominees who have
opposition and stand in danger of de
feat, I have failed to hear it or its
eeho or even a rumor of it. On the
other hand a fellow democrat must be
drawn into a distasteful newspaper
controversy in order to drag this in information
formation information from our'nominees to their
fellow democrats. This is not my con conception
ception conception of a loyal democrat.
I hold that Sidney J. Catts and
Frank Adams are bolters of the dem
ocratic party and not entitled to the
support of any loyal democrat. Do
you so hold? I have not contributed to
their election on November 7th, by
contributions of money, words or by
my silence. Have you contributed to
their election on that date or to the
election of either by contributions of
money, words or by your silence?
Have you personally urged any stray straying
ing straying democrat to remain steadfast and
true to all of the democratic party
nominees? It not, why?
Answer the questions herein and let
our fellow democratc judge of the
depth of our party loyalty. On the
other hand, have you not maintained a

way our forbears exhibited their party

present from twenty-eight of the thirty-two
churches. Large numbers came
in automobiles from nearby towns. The

customers strongly along the lines of anticipating their wants.
- "This is a most peculiar year. Crops are short, markets are advancing
and goods "are arriving slowly and we are constantly up against it every
day of goods running out of stock and having to wait until further ar arrivals."
The public is feeling the high prices here just as it is feeling them in New
York. And from what we are told (and we get our information from men who
are in close touch with the situation) we are to see still higher prices. Theie
is not a day that passes but what we get an advanced price on some item.
We advise our customers and the public in general, not to put off buying
groceries with the expectation of anything getting cheaper. Most any item
you may purchase now, you will save money on. It will be money in your
pocket to lay in a supply.
