A great many people will be sorry
to hear the Star's libel suit, has been

citizens of Ocala anxious to testify
against Cash, a bunch coming over

in Ocala whojwere not anxious to tes testify,

the stand. And everybody wanted to
see the fun. v-
Bat Lanier, the benevolent political
autocrat of Lake county, said he
would come over from Lake with, at
least forty witnesses to testify against
Cash when the Star's libel suit went
to trial. Cash is a very small potato,
but he seems to have accumulated a
large amount of dislike in his various
places of residence.

been rather, indulgent to our. public

Ocala and Marion county have a high
class of officers. That is owing to in

county, and has been owing to the
primary system in the county.
Public officials are always pleased

to the last ditch, arid they have quite
a high conception of public duty.
There is another good reason why
people had better be careful about
suing the Star for libel. It is that if
some one was to win a big suit
against it,, the proprietors would
simply hand, them over the paper and
go to making a living in some easier
way. The Star manages to get along
somehow- But any man who didn't
know the newspaper game, and who
didn't know how to play it in this
community, would find a nice, new,
shiny, 5-cent nickel of more use to
him than a newspaper plant. It
would scoop a hat-full of nickels out
of his pocket, or make him go dig
them up somewhere before he had
time to turn around. There is no bus business
iness business that can live at all, where you
have to do so much work and pay out
so much in proportion to what you
take in, as the newspaper business.

that they believe they practice it. As
a matter of fact, they are drifting
into a more communistic and social socialistic

Democrats and republicans are all

difference between them is that, one
party is bound to disapprove of what
the other does. When it comes to
taking public money, however, the re

Tampa Tribune has attacked Hiram
Johnson, the big progressive of Cali

suppose ? Because he fought the
Southern Pacific railway.
Seems to the Star .that if anything
in the world could endear Hiram John Johnson

average American for that matter, it
would be his fight on the Southern
Pacific, which until the people of Cal California

There was a time when the South Southern

was an owner for any white man to
be ashamed of. It owned the governor,
the legislature, the senators and the
congressmen, and councils of all the
cities. It took the streets of the cities
and the waterfronts of the ports; it
took the lands of the people, and its
hired assassins took the character
and sometimes the lives of those who
opposed its schemes. It sent honest

because it could corrupt any court and
pack any jury in the state.
C. P. Huntingdon and his aides were
very progressive men, but there has
never been any amount of progress
and enterprise yet that could justify
corruption and oppression.
One of the Star's friends, who is as
well, if not better posted than the
Tribune, and who never tries to sit on
one side of the fence, let alone both,
says he shouldn't be surprised if John Johnson

We see that Mrs. Flagler-Bingham
has given $125,000 to the hospital at
St. Augustine, which is just about as
good a use as she could find for the
money. That hospital has already
saved an eighth of a million dollars
worth of agony to humanity more
times than anyone could .count.
Forty or fifty years ago, hospitals
were places mentioned with horror.
They were considered ante-rooms to
the graveyard places where people
were not to be made well but to die,
They were not as bad as the popular
fancy made them, but in comparison
to what they are, today they were
very crude indeed.
