Last Note to Wilson Not Fully
ASSERTIONS AND OFFERS MADE
Washington, Oct. .21, 4:24 p. m.
Germany's reply, as received by wire wireless
less wireless here, is regarded as an' awkward
attempt to accept Wilson's terms for
an armistice. It is believed that in
coming by wireless it was garbled to
.a certain extent.

Washington, Oct. 22. The official
text of Germanys' latest note to the
United States was received by cable,
today at the Swiss legation.
NO ANSWER TODAY
The appearance of the Swiss charge
at the state department with the note'
was delayed several hours as the task
of decoding and translating proved to
be long; and tedious. Considerable
difference of verbiage may be shown.
It is understood the official text will
clear up certain obscure passages in
the wireless version. The indications
were that no announcement of a de decision

expected before tomorrow. Official
comment continued to be withheld,
awaiting an indication of the presi president's

to decide quickly.

Paris, Oct. 22. The German reply
to President Wilson was received too
late for the afternoon papers, but it
was eagerly discussed in official cir circles

note is found to be equivocal, tor tortuous,

Good night, pleasant dreams.
J. H. Brinson.
In replying to the foregoing, I am
using the first person singular; part partly
ly partly because the little w and e on my
twpewriter are worse worn than the
capital I; partly because Mr. Brinson,
unable to put up a good argument,
has dragged some of my personal af affairs
fairs affairs into the ; controversy.
I am afraid Mr. Brinson wasn't
feeling well when he typed his little
screed. He has departed from the
philosophical calm demanded by his
office and shows evidences of being on
the ragged edge. I think he had been
taking some of them influenza pre preventives,
ventives, preventives, in which case he is f or or-giveable.
He is also inaccurate, for he speaks
of my three-column article. Mr. Brin Brinson
son Brinson wrote forty per cent of that ar article
ticle article himself. Mr. Brinson is great
on forty per cent. That's how much
he wants your taxes increased.
I have no desire to "tear to pieces
the educational fabric," nor have I
tried to do so. I should like to see
some changes made in it, and I do not
see why as a citizen and a, journalist
I shouldn't be allowed to express my
opinion. There has been no complaint
of. my criticisms except from Mr.
Brinson and an element among "the
educational autocracy" that thinks
nobody outside their own little circle
has any right to an opinion on school
Neither have I referred in "insult "insulting

ings. callings. Isn't all this true ?
Perhaps some of Mr. Brinson'a
soreness is explained in the paragraph
! where he says that for anyone to
criticise the work of the people con connected
nected connected with school work was to brand
them either with being ignorant or
enemies of public education.
I have not thought so in fact, I
have always thought and always sajd
that our county school board and
county teachers were doing good
work, and I have not blamed them
for the faults of the state system,
and I do not see why Mr. Brinson
takes such a load upon his own shoul
ders. Perhaps it was the spif pre
ventive that was working on him just

patriotic taxation. I have no "gen "general
eral "general policy of opposition, antagonism
and general enmity toward the sys system

I hope Mr. Brinson will not repeat
his assertion to that effect, for it
I do not know who Mr. Brinson has
consulted about the amendment. Some
fifty or more citizens of different
parts of the county, all patrons of
the public school, have" informed me
that they approved of the Star's
stand on the question. In this as in
other things, I always consult people
who are interested.
I don't know whether the title
"apostle of ignorance" fits me or not.
I would rather wear it than the one
due Mr. Brinson, which is "the apostle
of unnecessary taxation." My friends
shall judge and if they think I de deserve
serve deserve the dunce's cap I will wear it
with good humor.
I am sorry, however, to see Mr.
Brinson drag my personal affairs
into this controversy sorry for him.
It is more like Catts than Brinson,
and in my iong acquaintance with
Mr. Brinson I had begun to believe
that intolerance was foreign to his
make-up. But since he thought he
must bring up a personal matter,
why didn't he tell all the truth, in instead
stead instead of half of it. We all know what
the old proverb says of half the
Mr. Brinson says to you, in mean meaning,
ing, meaning, if not in words: "Benjamin sent
his son to a private school because he
opposes public schools; he sent him to
a Catholic school because he prefers
the Catholic church to a Protestant
church; therefore, you ought to vote
for the ten-mill amendment."
How do you intelligent voters like
such an appeal to your prejudices?
Isn't such an argument purely and
entirely camouflage? Will the fact
that I sent my boy to a private school
make it any easier for you to pay that
Don't you think that a citizen has a
right to send his children to any
school that he thinks necessary, and
don't you all know that nine-tenths of
the academies, colleges and universi universities
ties universities in the United States are private
schools. Are not Yale and Harvard,
Cornell and Chicago, Leland Stanford,
Tulane, Vanderbilt, Stetson, Columbia
and Southern private schools ?
I did not send my boy to a private
school because I preferred it to a
public school, nor to a Catholic school
because it was a Catholic school. It's
nobody's business but my own, but I
have no objection to telling about it.
To begin with, my boy began his
studies in Miss Sharpe's kindergarten
(Mr. Brinson didn't tell you that) and
Miss Sharpe, as most people in Ocala
know, is a very strict .Protestant.
Then he went for two terms to the
Ocala public school Mr. Brinson
isn't telling you that, either. And, if
I had been situated as the average
citizen is situated, he would have
continued to go there. I was not so
situated, as most of my friends know
Mr. Brinson, as well as any of
fhem. It became necessary for me to
choose between sending the little
boy to a boarding school where he
would be under control of his
teachers twenty-four hours a day, or
letting him run loose on the streets
during a large proportion of his wak waking
ing waking hours. So I sent him to a board
ing school, and it is no 'fault of mine
that the Protestants did not have one
available. For that matter, at that
time, the great Mr. Catts had not
come among us to sow strife and
reap public office, Protestants and
Catholics were living in peace, and it
was nothing unusual for Protestant
children to go to Catholic schools. The
school my boy went to--St. Joseph's
Academy near Mandarin, in Duval
county was one of high reputation
and many Protestant boys have been
taught there in fact, I first heard of
it because a Protestant recommended
it to me. My son went to this school
six years and the sisters in charge
took good care of him. They gave
him a home as well as a school, treat
ed him as a little brother -as well as a
pupil and I will always be grateful
to them for what they did for him.
When he graduated there, he might
have gone to the Ocala high school if
he had wanted to. He preferred to go
to St. Leo College and I acceded to
his wishes. St. Leo is also a good
school and 'enabled him to finish his
education in much less time than any
high school could. Now, if Mr. Brin Brinson
son Brinson or anyone else can make any
political capital out of the manner in
which I have educated my son, he is
welcome to it.
The appeal to religious prejudice
is small business. Neither the Cath
olic church nor any Protestant church
has any influence on my views of
public ipolicy. Everybody in Ocala
knows that Mr. Brinson as well as
anybody. The men who founded the
American government intended it to
be strictly secular, and I have" always
followed their lead.
Mr. Brinson and myself have been
together a good deal in the last ten
years and have talked with great
freedom on public matters. The idea
that I opposed public schools never
entered his head until I began to op oppose
pose oppose that precious ten-mill amend amendment.

a well-known colored citizen in the
third ward, who has nine.
It is easier to abuse "Fax and
Figgers" than answer him. Every
taxpayer knows that the taxes have
increased, just as he says they have.
Mr. Brinson is entirely right in
saying his article is just little side
lights along the way, and does (not
have any bearing on the-subject under
discussion. The trouble about his
sidelights is that they are shaded
with green glass. He will find they
have hindered more than helped him.
My language is whatever my read readers
ers readers may choose to call it. I have
never allowed any profane language
to go into the paper, unless it was
part of a court record. As for slang,
Mr. Brinson, I presume, is well enough

"I would be delighted to drive you to
a good view point," he suggested, and
at her quick nod of acceptance, the
car swung about for the upward trip.
He was agreeable and easy to talk
to, this unusual man. Mollie had not
expected such easy victory over his
reserve. From the lake view they rode
on through glorious country, and his
laugh rang out at the girl's Ingenuous
remarks. Frankly she confessed her
"I was lonely," she said, "and I
did want a ride. You were such a dif difficult

"My mother," he murmured, "is de dependent

Mollie laughed softly. fThere are
two of us, then," she said, and held out
a hand with a sparkling ring. "That

"I must go back to the city," she
said, disconsolately, "to be, married."
Homer Vane appeared disconsolate
also as he drove Mollie to the station.
"We will go over the old hill once
more," he said, and sighed.
At the lake view, he stopped the
car's engine and bent to gaze Into Mol Mol-lie's
lie's Mol-lie's face. "Remember what you said
about my obstacle?" he asked. "Well,
it's gone. Mother is going to marry
her old widower neighbor. She told
me today. But that can't help me
Suddenly Mollie's eyes were shining.
From her pocket she drew a letter.
-"The man I was engaged to," she said,
"writes today to release me. We were
both too young when It happened. He
realized my Indifference when I came
away. He, too, has changed and so"
"So the last obstacle Is removed,"
the man cried, and Mollie smiled Into
