RACING AFTER THE GHOST
OF INTANGIBLE RICHES
Editor Star: One of the feathers
the tax commission placed in its cap
was the affair in St. Johns county in
the matter of the Flagler estate, or
the sport of chasing the phantom of
intangible riches. The tax assessor of
that county refused to answer a lev lev-ter
ter lev-ter or give any information, but it
was obtained from other sources.
With the assistance of some patriots
in that county, according to the re
port of the commission, it was found
that said estate was paying taxes on
personal property of only $75,000,
but under its influence the assessor
and board of county commissioners
agreed to raise the assessment to six sixteen
teen sixteen million dollars, but afterward the
board, wickedly and without the con
sent of the tax commission, reduced
the assessment to the mere pittance
of five million, or a matter of five
hundred and sixty odd thousand dol
lars more than all the other assessed
property of St. Johns county for that
year, but the commission was power
less to prevent this outrage. (The
report of the commission is largely
made up of buts and ifs). While the
commission was greatly and justly
peeved, it claimed "even this small
victory is worth consideration." "It
gave the state of Florida for this one
year in state taxes $32,500, or more
than twice the appropriation allowed
for the commission this year." St.
Johns county was in luck; the assess
ed valuation had been doubled by
more than half a million dollars, and
levies for county purposes cut in half.
The assessment was entered on. one
line of the tax books and involved
possibly five minutes time, but it cost
the state $760 and St. Johns county
$2700, commissions paid the assessor.
What happened? A refusal to pay
the assessment, nothing tangible to
seize a lawsuit pending in the courts
with lawyer's fees, and court costs,
the clunty crippled in its finances.
The same performance enacted in
1917, and I presume more lawsuits
and court costs, and the same com commissions
missions commissions paid the assessor. I think
I see why he did not answer my letter.

various churches hold services at some
time in the morning and that in the
afternoon all places of business be
closed, and that the people go and
decorate the graves of our patriotic
dead those who served on both sides
in the war between the stdtes, those
of the Spanish-American war and
those who have passed away since the
beginning of the great war. It wouldd
also be a good idea for our fraternal
orders to remember the last resting
places of their departed brethren;
neither should the graves of that
great army of men, women and chil children

the great battle of life be forgotten.
It is true that the graves of out

would be the best of days for us all
to remember them all, as we look into
the fearful war cloud of the present

know on which side the men of both

indeed it is easy to imagine the men
of the mighty armies of the blue ancf

sons in khaki are waging for their

There was scarcely a dry eye at the
funeral service of Miss Florence
Leitner yesterday afternoon when
Rev. Ira Barnett in a touching and
tender manner paid a beautiful trib tribute
ute tribute to her memory, first reading the
90th Psalm. He spoke of the fact
that a year ago today this beautiful
girl in the joy and gladness of her
young maidenhood delivered the class
prophecy, which showed most fully
her possession of a fine mind. He also
paid tribute to her bright and capable
domestic life which he as a neighbor
knew so thoroughly, of her unselfish
and kind-hearted spirit, her ability to
make friends, her practical view of
life and of her consideration as a
daughter and the many things she
had learned not found in books. He
said that eight years ago she united
with the Methodist church. She was
an active member of the Friendship
Bible class and she had entered most
actively into Red Cross work, hoping
to add her mite in the world's great
work. Every word that fell from the
lips of this consecrated man was
helpful to the sorrowing ones, and
especially so it seemed to the writer
were his words, "God moves in a mys mysterious
terious mysterious way his wonders to perform,
and we may rest fully in the belief
that God cares and sympathizes." Mr.
Hardin followed with a prayer for
strength to bear this great sorrow,
and Mrs. Taylor, Mrs. Galloway and
Mrs. Barnett sang sweetly "Sometime
We Will Understand," followed by a
song given by the Friendship Bible
class. A large concourse of friends

THE FAIRFIELD PICNIC
It looked a little like old times to
see the crowd at Fairfield Friday, to
listen to the disinterested promises
of the various candidates and to en enjoy
joy enjoy the un-Hooverized and bountiful
dinner. It was the biggest gathering
thu3 far in the itinerary of the can candidates,
didates, candidates, and the lovely weather, the
delightful ride over one of the best
roads in the county, and the large
number of ladies present made, it a
very enjoyable affair indeed.
In the absence of Mr. M. L. Payne,
the duties of chairman were attended
to by a Mr. Jones, and none of the
candidates had any kick to make over
the graceful manner in which he in introduced
troduced introduced them to the audience, or his
generosity or liberality in the mattei
The first victim, or, I should say,
speaker, was Mr. N. A. Fort, candi candidate
date candidate for a seat in the legislature. He
commenced by giving a short history
of the work done by the board of
county commissioners in the fourteen
years he has been a member of that
body; how the tax had been reduced
half a mill, only to be raised again by
the state another two mills. He told
how taxes were levied and how the
money was spent, paid his respects to
various commissions which were a
species of graft; hotel inspectors,
drawing down large salaries and giv giv-ing
ing giv-ing little or nothing in return; the
market bureau run at a cost of $15,-
000 per year was another leak at the
bunghole of the barrel of taxes the
people of Marion are called upon to
furnish, and here he gave Brother
Light a nudge by declaring him the
author of the bill legalizing the bu
reau. The state road commission re received
ceived received some little attention, as Mr.
Fort declared he had tried for three
years to get the members to visit
Ocala and even tho they had set a
time more than once to be here, they
have always faile dto show up, and
he was at a loss to find any excuse
for the existence of the commission.
In speaking of the railroad commis commission,
sion, commission, he declared that the most ardu arduous
ous arduous part of their duties was to draw
their salaries. He was in favor of
abolishing the commission during the!
war, as the railroads are now under
federal jurisdiction. The tax commis commission
sion commission he said was now six years "old
and might be a good thing if it would
only do something. In speaking of
taxes on land, he said the highesv
valuation was $21 per acre and the
lowest 67 cents, and that if taxes
were paid as directed or required by
law, there would be no need of the
county commissioners having to bor borrow
row borrow money to tide them over, and
that all laws become pernicious and
dangerous if not enforced.
Mr. S. J. McCully was the next
speaker. He spoke along the sam
lines as Mr. Fort as to the uselessness
of the various commissioners, and
said that $3600 paid annually to each
member of the railroad commission
should be saved for the taxpayers. He
also declared that a county the size
of Marion should have a whole sena senator
tor senator of its own instead of only half a
senator, as at present.
Mr. W. J. Folks had a platform
built of lumber from the western side
of the county, which he declared had
had no representative in the legisla legislature
ture legislature for the fifty years he had lived
there, and while they paid their share
of every mile of road, crossroad, lane
or junction on the east side of the
county, there had never been one
mile of, hard road built on his side,
so he wanted to go to the legislature
to see that the west side got a square
L. S. Light as usual gave a startling
array of facts and figures, also the
things that had been accomplished in
the three terms that he has had th6
honor of representing Marion county
at Tallahassee. And while he was
as fit as ever to hold up the rights of
old Marion, he wished .to impress on
the voters present that if they could
find a better man for the job it was
up to the voters to get him.
Ben Raysor declared he had al always
ways always stood for everything in the way
of progress, even including woman
suffrage. He wanted the primary law
either abolished or reconstructed, and
told how much money was spent to
protect cattle and hogs but nothing
for orphans, and placed a higher
value on the orphans than on the cat cattle.
tle. cattle. Mr, Crosby made a very interesting
speech on work done by him in tht,
various offices he has filled, and de defended

bill to add $2.50 per month to the
pensions paid to Confederate vete veterans,
rans, veterans, and cave the inside farts In rp
jgard to raising money for the eradi
cation of the citrus canker evel. He
wound up his speech by paying a
splendid tribute to his opponent.
Mr. C. B. Howell called the citrus
canker bill a species of class legisla legislation,
tion, legislation, and therefore unjust.
Messrs. Scofield and Stringer, can candidates
didates candidates for the office of state attor attorney,
ney, attorney, livened things up 'considerably
after dinner and Mr. L. W. Duval
made a soul-stirring speech in behalf
of the Red Cross.
Ocala was well represented at this
picnic. Col. R. F. Rogers and Mr. R.
S. Rogers were on hand, as were
Judges Smith, McConathy and Gober.
Assessor Alfred Ayer, wife and
daughter entertained a big party at
their end of the picnic table, and
they certainly were hospitable host
and hostesses. Taking it by and
large, as Mark Twain would say, the
whole affair was a most delightful
and enjoyable one, and here's hoping
that the promoters will duplicate it at
some future time, and that all the
candidates will be elected.

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. Ani. if you invast the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.
