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.

Governor Catts has received much
adulation from some of the papers of
the state for his recent trip to the
Everglades, his intention of draining
the same, digging a ship canal, etc.,
but the Miami Metropolis tells the
following on him:

by his sudden disappearance on Wed Wednesday,

The true explanation of the gover governor's
nor's governor's desertion of the cross-state
canal boosters became known today.
Instead of being recalled to the cap-

ital on state business, the governor

spent last Wednesday at Fort Lau

derdale, attending a political confer conference
ence conference intended to win back some of his

Broward county supporters who for

different reasons have been alienated
from him since election.

Pacify Broward County
It has been an open secret for

many months that Broward county,
which was a Catts stronghold in last
year's campaign; has shown anything

but friendliness to the governer in

recent months. This change has been
due in some measure to his alleged
failure to keep his" pre-election prom

ises to the Broward people on Ever Everglades
glades Everglades drainage matters, and to his
failure to recognize the men who led

his fight for him in that county, when

it came to distributing public offices.

During the governor's visit here

last week it was freely stated by his

friends that he was anxious to win
back the1 support of Dade and Brow Broward
ard Broward counties; not only in the legisla legislature,
ture, legislature, but in his proposed fight for

election to the United States1 Senate

three years from now, for which he is

already" making plans.

As a part of the program for get

ting Broward county back into line,

a secret conference of Catts leaders

f roni various parts of the state was
held in the Masonic temple at Fort

Lauderdale last Wednesday afternoon.

Some of those present were Van C.

Swearingen, attorney general; Adju-;

tant General Christian; "Billy" PaK j

Free Press; Representative Seals of
Bradford county, A. N. Dobbins of

The latter is that Fort Lauderdale

man who some time ago started suit
against the governor for $20,000

damages for slander and defamation

have had the governor's promise to
name himj as hotel commissioner.
When another man was given this
job,' Ten Brook made public some of
his correspondence with the chief ex executive,
ecutive, executive, and it was because of alleged
comments made by the governor upon
this action that the damage suit was
One of the purposes of last week's
conference is said to have 'been to in induce
duce induce Mr. Ten Brook to withdraw his
damage suit, and the Duval county
Cattsites were summoned," it is said,
to aid in inducing him to that effect.
Whether the conference succeeded
in its purpose was not announced.
Mr. Ten Brook refuses to make any
statement, and the governor and
others at the meeting refused to dis discuss
cuss discuss the subject or even admit that
any such conference had been held.
Editor Star: I have read with

much interest your attempted reply

to my communication, but I regret to

note that you are yet not sufficiently

advised upon the subject to speak,
much less to try to inform the world;
and I also note that you did not com com-prehend
prehend com-prehend your question.

You did not ask the candidates if

they were in favor of litigation to
cancel the franchise of the gas com company,
pany, company, but you stated as a positive
fact that the franchise ran out and
that the gas company' would want a
better one; and you demanded of the
candidates that they express them themselves
selves themselves as to what kind of a charter
they would vote for. Therefore, your
question should have been upon an
entirely different proposition; and had
anyone been weak enough' to answer
it, they would have put themselves in
the same category you are in talking-
about something they know abso absolutely
lutely absolutely nothing about. Therefore, in
fairness to the candidates, your question-should
be framed differently, and
should hypothesise the facts upon
which you base your inquiry, for as
I am absolutely sure, not one out of
a hundred people in the city evei
heard of the city attorney's letter you
refer to, and I do not believe a single
candidate, outside of those now in of office
fice office and who seek to be re-elected,
ever heard of it. So, in fairness, Mr.
Editor, please ask what you want to
know and don't depend upon the

quiry'that in-quiry'that it in no sense could justify.
I also note that the city attorney
has rendered an opinion that the
franchise expires June 5th, 1919. Just
when5 this opinion was rendered I am

not advised, and in fact am not inter

ested," but I am inclined to believe it

was before the present city charter
became effective, as I am sure Mr.

Hocker is familiar with Section 17 of
the charter act. Section 17 in part,
reads as follows:

"That all ordinances, resolutions,

contracts, outstanding bonds, appro

priations, and all other acts of the
city of Ocala, or the officers thereof,

heretofore done, passed, made or per performed,
formed, performed, be, and the same are hereby

ratified, validated and confirmed."
Therefore, even to concede the cor correctness
rectness correctness : of Mr. Hocker's opinion, to
the effect 'that the ordinance passed

in 1909, extending the franchise for a
term of ten years from June 5, 1919s.
upon the condition of certain pay payments
ments payments to be made, was illegal, and,
that the city council had no a!thor a!thor-ity
ity a!thor-ity to grant such extension, this ord ordinance
inance ordinance extending such Jtime has been
ratified by the legislature and it has
become a part of the organic law of
the city, and is just as binding upon

the city as any other provision ir'j the
charter. In other words, if the city is
bound by the new charter, the exten extension
sion extension of the franchise is just as good
as the charter.
Again, you state that it is some somewhat
what somewhat uncertain as to whether the
council could renew the franchise,
conceding' that it runs out in 1919. If
you were in doubt about this why
didn't you communicate with the city
attorney rather than leave the dear
people in doubt upon such subject.
He" could probably have enlightened
you upon this subject, because if the
franchise runs out, any extension
would be equivalent to a new one,
and the hands of the council would be
Therefore, let me suggest that you
frame your inquiry to the candidates
in such way that you will ask them
if they intend to institute proceedings
to cancel the supposed extension of
the franchise. You need not ask them
about voting upon a new one, because
those elected at the next election
(even though elected for four years)
will not have the opportunity of vot voting
ing voting upon it; because I am sure that
until the last court of the land, the
Supreme Court of the United States,
has spoken upon the subject, there
will be no opportunity to vote upon
it and it will, be not less than five
years before that could take place
after the commencement of the initr
ial proceedings.
Now, therefore, Mr. Editor, don't
yuo think it would be fair that you
make an honest confession and admit
that you jumped on something that
you did not know the first thing
about? H. M. Hampton.
