On the Dark Sides of the Proposed
Ten-Mill Tax Amendment
Editor Star: Here are my reasons
why I am voting against and trying
to defeat the amendment to the state
constitution at the coming election
permitting our school authorities to
increase the tax levy to ten mills.
Study these figures and see if the
increased costs of our schools has not
been fast enough and see if we have
not plenty of laws on our law books,
without this amendment covering the
The records of the state superin-
tenddent of schools says: The cost
per person for schools in this state
in June, 1908. was $2.50, while in 1916
it was $4.20, an increase of nearly
100 per cent in eight years, and in
Marion county the cost for the same
years was $2.27 and $6.20 nearly
three times as much.
The records show that the indebt
edness for schools in the whole was
was $449,687 in 1908 and was in 1916
$3,227,000, nearly eight times as
large, while in Marion county it has
increased from $6,998 in 1908 t
$84,711 in 1916 twelve fold increase
of indebtedness in eight years. This

The tax millage has been increased
in the last eight years to its highest
limit, the assessments of property in
the last ten years have been increas increased

nearly eight fold. United States taxes
have been raised from about $9 per
person in 1916 to about $75 in 1919,
and now you are caHed on to vote
to. add an additional tax burden on
Are you going to do it? I am not.
If the school authorities want more
money why don't they try and have
the law enforced compelling the 100, 100,-000
000 100,-000 males in the state entitled to pay
poll tax pay their poll tax. One mill million
ion million dollars has been lost to the school
authorities by the failure of this col collection
lection collection in the last ten years.
The state tax commission is my au
thority for saying tihere are hundreds
of millions of property in this state
that is assessed at 20 per cent less
than their true value, and millions at
10 per cent and less, and millions
that are not assessed at al.
Those who want more money for
the schools should demand of our
governor the enforcement of our tax
If our tax laws were enforced our
assessed wealth would be $1,000,000,-
000 and a levy of five mills all told
would supply our school authorities
with about 20 per cent more money
This three mill increase, without the
enforcement of our tax laws, will
make the man that is paying his full
share pay the additional levy. Let's
make the men that shirk their taxes
or don't pay any, pay their full
share, and the school boards will
have more money and many of the
taxpayers pay less taxes.
A constitutional tax levy is dan
gerous, because it is almost impossi
ble to have it changed or repealed.
Here is an illustration:
The one-half mill levy (a constitu
tional amendment) for the board of
health has worked, is working now
and continues to do as follows:
In 1895 the board of health, in
round numbers spent $16,000, while
in a late year spent $159,000, nearly
ten times as muck. The board of
health has cost the taxpayers in th
last eight years more than $1,000,000
Should our governor enforce the
tax assessment laws and our assess
ment would be $1,000,000,000, then
the board of health would receive
$500,000 a year, and I believe thej
could and would spend that much-if
they had iL
I believe if we pass this amendment
for increased millage for schoo pur purposes
poses purposes it would work .like the board of
health tax is working now, has been
and will work.
Voter and taxpayer, let's go slow
in increasing taxes. Let' remember

SHUTTING THE SCHOOLS
The events of the past few days
have created some friction in local
affairs, but we suppose it has been
smoothed over by now.
When the local school board and the
city health officer decided to keep the
schools open, they acted as' they
thought for the best. They honestly
believed their action would be a safe safeguard
guard safeguard to health, and they had in
mind the great interruption to school
work and hardship on the teachers
that would follow school closing. It's
the Star's opinion that if nobody
would be alarmed, keeping the schools
open would be the best, course.
Unfortunately, a whole lot of peo
ple can't help being .- alarmed. And
alarm is often more demoralizing
than disease. This well-proven fact
was taken into consideration by the
mayor and state health officer, who
decided Wednesday to close not only
the schools but all other places where
children or older people are liable to
meet dn large numbers. ':
A veteran physician, who has been
thru two epidemics of yellow fever,
says that fear is the most powerful
element in epidemics, and there are
numberless examples recorded m his
tory to hear out his statements.
We understand that the state unl
versity at Gainesville, which town
has been sorely smitten by the dis
ease, has not closed, and we notice in
one of the New York papers that the
school officials of that crowded city
believe they can safeguard the chil
dren better in the classrooms-.than
they, could be on the streets and in
Be. that-as ..it may,, there are many
people in Ocala who feel ,more easy
with the schools closed, and easy
minds are a preventive of epidemic.
If some boy or girl while going to
school had been taken sick and died,
the school authorities would have
been blamed for it, whether the
- scholar contracted the disease at
school or not. ...
Let the people be reassured, go
about their regular business, keep in
the open air as much as possible and
scatter out as much as possible. Tel

press impress on them the necessity of keep
mg away from the infected.
, If your children are taken ill, even
slightly, keep them away from other
children, bpanish mnuenza, m it
self, is not a dangerous disease; it is
only when complications occur that i
causes serious illness.
For several reasons, Ocala is bet
ter able to avoid a spread" of the dis-
ease than any other town. The people
should co-operate with these reasons

Ah, but she felt and knew
All my heart held of love and fear
And brought me word of you!
Of you! For you I had no thought,
For, you I had no care!
For her! Ah, I was overwrought,
Twixt hoping and despair!
The night had dragged a weary
And fearing for her loss
Had brought me, sapped of human
Prostrate before the cross!
Now we two bend above your bed;
And you are all we know
Of happiness. Your fuzzy head,
Your baby cheeks aglow.

Your gurglings more and more
You bring to us a happiness

ENTITLED TO IMMEDIATE AID
Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 7.
, To the Citizens of Florida:
t Because you are Florida citizens
and Americans, you would not hes hesitate
itate hesitate to walk out into No Man's Land,
and rescue a fallen comrade. That
point is settled. Only we dare say
you didn't expect to be given an op-
t pui tunny iu uu such an act ui com comradeship
radeship comradeship quite so soon. 4
Here are the facts. You may
judge for yourself.
Already two hundred and twenty
Florida soldier boys have been sent
home on account of tuberculosis.
They are as definitely out of the war
as though they had beenstruck by a
German shell. s
On the other hand there is much
that can be done for them. Many will
need to be sent to sanitariams. Others
will need home care and nursing. In
every case we must prevent the
spread of infection to other members
of the family. '.
The government has assumed no
responsibility for these 220 Florida
boys. They were discharged "not, in
lino of duty." Their care is up to us,
as Florida citizens.
For their sake, and for the sake
of fighting tuberculosis in Florida,
won't you help ? y
We need $5000 as a start How
much can you give? Don't be afraid
to, make a small contribution if that
is your limit. If we all do the limit
we can put this war job across.

Four hundred and twenty-six years
ago Saturday, Oct. 12, 1492," Christo Christopher
pher Christopher Columbus landed upon Ameri American
can American soil, and a long cherished dream
was at last realized. He had for
years with little success beseeched
the sovereigns of Europe for aid in
order that he might prove his theory
of a shorter route to India correct.
At last he prevailed upon Queen Isa
bella of Spain to come to' his aid,
which she did by pawning her jewel
that the little fleet might be fitted
out, and the three small vessels set
sail upon an unknown and mysterious
ocean. It would be a daring navi navigator
gator navigator indeed, in these days, who
would venture out of sight of land in
such a ship as Columbus set out in
to discover a continent. Today the
country which was the home of wild
and savage tribes in the days of
Columbus, is the seat of the greatest
and richest and freest government
the world has ever seen, and millions
of its sons are fighting in Europe for
liberty and freedom. President Wil
son has thought the anniversary
worthy of commemoration, and has
named it "Liberty Da'y," and has
asked every community in the Unit United
ed United States to celebrate it.
The following is his proclamation:
"Every day the great principles fov
which we are fighting take fresh hold
upon our thoughts and purposes and
make it clearer what the end must be
and what we must do to achieve' it.
We now know more certainly than
we ever knew before why free merl
brought the great nation and govern government
ment government we love into existence, because
it grows clearer and clearer what su supreme
preme supreme service it is to be America's
privilege to render to the world."

An Unique Prayer Meeting
The members of the Baptist church
held an interesting and unique open
air prayer meeting in front of their
church last evening. The meeting
opened with the song "Be Not Afraid,
Whate'er Betide, God Will Take Care
of You." The consecrated and devot
ed pastor made a splendid talk on the
"Need of Prayer." Among other
valued thoughts and suggestions, he
reminded the people of how in the
days of old great epidemics had been
stopped through prayer, in every
age of the world hindrances to the
people of God have been removed
through faith and prayer, and in' old
en times scourges were removed thru
prayer, and God never fails to an answer
swer answer those who come to him in faith,
therefore this nation should strive to
become a steadfast, praying nation.
This earnest talk was followed by
several songs which were greatly en
