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.

(Correspondence of the Associated
Press) There are all kinds of armies
these war-days, and today we saw an
army of automobiles drawn up in bri brigades
gades brigades and" regiments, every conceiv conceivable
able conceivable kind of motor vehicle for carry carrying
ing carrying on the many war activities. These
were ammunition, cars, tank cars for
carrying gasoline, steel trucks by the
hundred, ambulance cars for the
wounded, signal service ? cars with
complete wireless outfit and all the
equipment for field signalling, recog recognizance
nizance recognizance cars on which 18 Wen make a
reconnoisance into enemy countryt
battalion- after battalion of touring
cars for headquarters and other
branches of the service, and motor
cycles for dispatch bearers. It was
like half a dozen automobile exposi
tions in one, and all devoted to the
one business of carrying on the war.
The commandant led the way thru
Wilson avenue of the huge plant, and
then turned into Roosevelt avenue.
One one side stretched away a half-
mile square of motor vehicles in such
a vast array as to be fairly bewilder bewildering,
ing, bewildering, but all lined up in regular forma
tion like soldiers ready to move for
ward to the front. On the other side
stretched away acre after acre of
buildings for innumerable branches
of this .work, v and between them on
the open spaces armies of soldiers in
overalls setting up all kinds of motor
cars. Everywhere were stacked the
masses of "knock-down" parts just
arrived from the United States;
mountains of wheels and sides, mo motors,
tors, motors, batteries, radiators and block
after block of huge crates containing
the big chassies of the many, types of
war cars.
As the commandant passed along
he summed up the magnitude of the
work. Sixty-two complete trucks and
cars have been turned out in one day.
This is the record at the start, with
a monthly output of 1200 cars and 500
motorcycles, and a much greater pro production
duction production when the organization gets
under way. In theory, these are all
standard parts which need only to be
fitted together, an easy task appar
ently as most of the preliminary con construction
struction construction is done in the factories' in
America. But in fact, so say those
who do the work, these parts do not
fit; they have to be shaped and fitted
after arrival. Then there are many
factories sending many kinds of
parts. Some factories send complete
equipment, such as bolts and the
heavy wooden sills for trucks, : but
other factories do not send the bolts
or sills.
There is no time to wait for these
missing parts, for war is going on
and cars are being mobilized like men.
What is not here must be made. And
from this has grown a huge industry
of government war production, with
big workshops and machinery for
making bolts and sills and all the
various parts, and for testing and
making over dynamos and genera generators,
tors, generators, and even for constructing the
trim bodies and frames and thus
turning out practically an entire car.
A long line of ovens was passed in
which we saw some of the delicate
parts of the mechanism being baked
and dried to cure them from the
dampness of the sea journey. The
sea air plays many tricks on these
parts. We saw the. field windings of
generators covered with sea rust and
green mould. All of these have to be
baked and made over. Fiber is con-

address on the occasion of the launch launching

the first of ten vessels, each of 9000
tons dead weight, which are to be

Shipping board.
Colonel Roosevelt expressly ex
empted the ? employees of the local
yard from his denunciation' by saying
that he understood that a warm spirit
of helpfulness and co-operation had
been developed here. Emphasizing
the patriotic service rendered by ship-
builders, the colonel said:
"A slacker in our shipyards is as
shameful a creature as a coward in
the army in France, and a good work worker
er worker in the shipyards stands honorably
forward like a good soldier in the

to the country.

to do the hardest work in the most
dangerous position; and I would not
give him a rifle until he had learned
the spirit of patriotism. Any man
who lays off now or scamps his job
is a traitor to his fellow Americans
in France, a traitor to the men who
need all the help we can give them.
On the other hand you, whom I am
convinced represent the enormous
majority of the shipyard workers,
you who are doing your utmost night
and day, week in and week out, stand
on the honor roll of American citizen citizenship

France, and I honor you.- I am proud

From now on American shipbuilders

limitation of output in our shipyards
is a crime against the country. Any
union rule or workmens' agreement
to limit the output in shipyards should
be treated as criminal at this time.
Pershing's men are not limiting their
output. Shame and disgrace should
be the portion of any man who here
at home limits the output necessary
to make the blood and labor of ouv
soldiers at the front of no avail.
"It is the patriotic duty of men in
the less essential industries to leave
those industries and to come to the
shipyards and to place their technical
skill at the service of their country
which takes as much pride in its part
in the war work as the men along the
front lines.

answered the call of a large church
in Trinidad, Colo., a church of which
his son was rector before going into
the army. In the less than two years
they have been here, Mr. and Mrs.
Ottmann have made friends of the

the greatest helpers in war work.
While we are sorry to lose them, we
are glad to know they go to another

of helpfulness and cheerfulness. They
will leave Ocala about the end of the

The city council meets this evening.
There are several things it should do,
and we propose to outline some of
them. The council, as. a whole, does
not relish the Star's advice. Some of
its members resent our constant
criticisms, and so far as we know,
only one of them. Alderman Mclver,
agrees fc with any reasonable propor proportion
tion proportion rf what we say. However, we
will, make our suggestions, and it is
for the people rather than the council
to say whether they should be heeded.
The most important thing for the
council to do is to open negotiations
with Benjamin Thompson, the con contra
tra contra tcor, who almost built the city
plant, to see if the differences be between
tween between him and the city can't be
straightened out, so he can finish the
work. Mr. Thompson intends to en enter
ter enter suit against the cityi and we be believe
lieve believe he has a good case. Mr. Thomp Thompson
son Thompson has a reputation for doing honest
work There is reason to Relieve he
was not responsible for the way the
plant was botched. He carried out, or
tried to carry out, the plans made by
others. We have been told by reliable
men that he protested against some
of the instructions given him. If he
wins his suit the city will lose. If he
loses, the city will lose, too; for it will
be no better off so far as the plant is
concerned, and be worse off in money
spent for court expenses and in time
lost. We have seen letters which are
to the effect that Mr. Thompson, and
the engineer, Mr. Henney, are willing
to come to an understanding. As to
whether the city should compromise
with the Delavergne and Skinner peo people,
ple, people, we are not prepared to say. If
the city has an understanding with
the contractor and the advice of an
experienced engineer, it would be bet better
ter better prepared to make terms with the
other parties.
We think that the city should ap apply
ply apply to -some engineering firm of high
and established reputation- and there
are a number in the country to send
a man here to direct the work; a man
who will have the skill ana authority
t) find the faults and have them cor corrected.
rected. corrected. J';''." .V-
To do this will cost money. Not to
do it will cost a great deal more. The
idea in building the new plant was to
build one that would save money and
make money to put in apparatus
that could do the work more cheaply
in proportion than the old, to give the
people lower rates for current, and to
supply current in plenty for manu manufacturing
facturing manufacturing enterprises. It was also
the intention that the plant should
pay for itself. In all these things it
has failed. The service has not been
so good, the rates have been raised,
and if you count, as you should as
in the long run you must the cost of
repairs, the interest on the bonds and
the money that should be laid up to
meet the payment of the bonds you
will find that the city is losing money
and losing it heavily every day. We
cannot afford to enter into contracts
to supply manufacturing firms with
current. In the present uncertain
condition of the plant, the current
might fail, and then our expenses
would be added to by having to make
good the loss such firms would incur
by the stoppage of their power.
The history of the new plant since
it started has been a series of break breakdowns.

only cost heavily but they have caus

these accidents continue and we

time pay our debt with another bond

should do is to elect a city manager.
Mr. Caldwell has told several of his
friends that he was going to resign.
He should resign; and the council
should accept his resignation. Forc Forcing
ing Forcing the office on him has been the
worst piece of camouflage the city
government has been guilty of since
we have been here. Mr. Caldwell
has more than he can do in looking
after the city plant and the system
of electric wires and water pipes. He
has not sufficient assistance to enable
him to attend to this, unless every everything
thing everything was working without a break.
At present he is acting as night en engineer,
gineer, engineer, besides putting in full time
in the day. The other night he show showed
ed showed the writer a stack of correspond correspondence
ence correspondence about the plant that would take
several hours to clear away. His
election was an evasion of the char charter,
ter, charter, and the council should undo its
foolish act. It has been found by ex experience
perience experience in this and other towns that
the best aldermen are business and
professional men with some property
interests. Experience has developed
the fact that while such men make
good representatives, they fare too
busy with their own affairs to make
good executives. So the city mana manager
ger manager plan was evolved. In our city,
the manager was to attend, all the
time to the work the councilmen could
hardly find time to do in a part of
their time. But the evasion of the
charter gives us for city manager a
man who already has two men's work
to do, and who by the way is breaking
himself down trying to do it. ;
The entire town is suffering from
the ; lack of business management.
There used to be nine councilmen and
by dividing up the work they could
look after city affairs with reasonable
efficiency. Now there are only five,
with one, or two off the job all the
time, and it is only necessary to
look ; at the dilapidated condition of
the streets and everything else to see
how the work is not being done.
The council should find out why
there was such inferior water pres pressure
sure pressure at the Hall fire last week. This
fire reduced the taxable property of
the city by some forty or fifty thou thousand
sand thousand dollars, and therefore hurt, eve every
ry every taxpayer in town. Moreover, what
happened once can happen again.
There are a number of residences in
the city at about the same elevation,
and 'most of them belong to men less
able to stand the loss than Mr. Hall
was. When the matter is investigat investigated,
ed, investigated, it will probably be found that the
utter weariness from overwork of
some city employe was the reason for
slack water pressure at the time of
the fire...,; -. ;
r We doubt that the council pays any
attention to any of our suggestions,
altho three of the members have
agreed with us in some of them. But
when the next election arrives they
will find that the mass of the people
have paid attention. ; :
There is one thing more that we
will call the attention of the council
and ; all other taxpayers to. Some
people have said that because the
Star criticised the city plant of late
that it had gone over to the side of
the Florida Power Company. We shall
not dispute the charge. Anybody can
Relieve it that wants to. But we wish
to impress on the people this fact

which many of them already realize.
The manner in which our public af affairs
fairs affairs is being conducted is forcing
the city into the hands of the power
company. Every instance of ram ramshackle
shackle ramshackle management, every break breakdown
down breakdown at the plant, plays into the
hands of the owners and managers of
the company. If the present perform
ance keeps up, we will have to take
their power some day at their own
terms, or we will have to put up with
vast inconvenience and expense while
building a new plant. Either will
stack up taxes and fates until only
the very rich or the very poof can
afford to live in Ocala.
Again we venture to gently remind
the city council of the necessity of
putting Exposition street in order
for the fair. For the fair to be a suc success
cess success will help the city; for it to fail
will hurt the city. The fair will hard hardly
ly hardly be a success unless that important
street is put in good order. The open opening
ing opening of the fair is now only ten weeks
off, ; and repairing the street is con considerably
siderably considerably more than a matter of a
week or so.
A big, ugly hole in the street, at
the intersection of Oklawaha avenue
and Newberry street, one of the
routes most used; by cars, threatens
every auto that goes that way. The
hole is a couple of feet across and
six or eight inches deep, and right
in the ; middle of the stret. Another
ugly. hole at the corner leaves barely
room for a car to pass. If an auto
ran into the hole at any speed, it
would almost certainly be smashed
and the people in it injured. The hole
should be filled at once.
We would be sorry that Lenine
isn't dead if it wasn't for the almost
absolute certainty that a more able
villain would take his place.

Editor Star: Owing to the advance

now a large demand for ginned Span

a new chemical method of treating
moss, which has proven to be much
cheaper than the ol5 method, and
which will cure the moss ready for
ginning in two hours time. If you
know of some one who would likely
be interested in going in with me to
start a moss ginnery at Ocala, I
