That these statutes relating to pri primary
mary primary laws are useless is now fully
demonstrated by the fact that:
1st. We had state primaries be
fore we ever had any statutes relating
same and such primaries were less
complicated and more satisfactory
when controlled simply by the demo
cratic organization rather than by
2nd. If a party primary were left
wholly to be governed by our rules
and not statutes, the candidates in
such primaries and the nominees
thereof would have no standing before
the courts and our" overburdened
courts would not have to adjourn all
public business in orderto listen to
suits brought by dissatisfied candi candidates,
dates, candidates, because, in the absence of a
statute giving a man vested rights h
virtue of his nomination, the courts
will not entertain any suit.
' Without the primary statutes, the
committee on credentials quickly de-
cides all such matters and if not
rightly done, nevertheless the matter
is ended there.
3rd. If all primary statutes were
repealed it could not happen as in the
case of the tax collector of Duval
county now, and as several times has
been the case in the past, that a man
accused of high criminal offense could
enforce his rights' before the courts
to remain on the ticket as the party
nominee and be entitled morally to
receive ,the vote of every democrat,
even though it has been developed that
he has flagrantly disqualified himself
from holding such position. This now
happens in Jacksonville and has hap
pened m lampa and other places, but
there is absolutely no machinery pro
vided to take the name of such can candidate
didate candidate off of the ticket and he has the
right under the primary statutes to
enforce his rights in the courts.
4th. That all the penalties in the
primary statutes are useless, has
been fully demonstrated by the fact
that in seventeen years nobody has
ever been convicted of violation of
them and yet, I presume that no one
could be found who would contend
that these 'statutes were not frequent frequently
ly frequently and flagrantly violated.
5th. The evil effect of these statutes
is shown in the recent Catts-Knott
corkest which occupied" almost exclu exclusively
sively exclusively the attention of the courts for
four or five months with the .result
that $25,000 or 30,000 of the people's
money was wasted, important : litiga-
wras side-tracked, the court's
dockets were allowed to become con-
gestedwith other; business, while the
court in pursuance of its statutory
duties, Was forced to decide in piece piecemeal
meal piecemeal the various and sundry suits re relating
lating relating to this one matter as it might
happen to suit the attorneys for the
parties to present to the court; the
court, of necessity in case being re restricted
stricted restricted to a consideration only of
particular precincts or counties which
happened to be made the subject of
special complaint by the attorneys for
the parties. The courts don't want to
wash the dirty linen of the democratic
party, but these primary laws force
them to do so, because they give the
nominees the legal status entitling
them to suit, while without the pri primary
mary primary law a party candidate has no
such right. It could probably never
happen that any one suit ccruld be
brought to review the proceedings of
all the boards of canvassers in the
state of Florida in any one state elec
j tion, and if such a suit could be
brought it is impvobable that it could
i be terminated in the lifetime of one
ordinary individual. It is equally ob-
j vious that a court when called on to
! review the proceedings, at the in-
stance .of a candidate for a state of
fice, f or alleged errors committed
against him in one county, will not
be able, to do complete justice unless
it has the means of re-canvassing the
vote of the whole state. Therefore, it
is tne ioregone conclusion tnat any

"Book," yours shall be the same com compensation

working in the prohibition fight (state
wide, of course) since
early in the
morning, tfut 1 hardly think you
should join forces .with "Facts "-and

Benjamin, in an effort to overcome
friend Brinson and, either famish
some of our "school marms" or .make
them quit; for, as you may know, I
have had a very tender place in my
heart for one or more of them.
. Your Uncle Sammy has seen fit and
proper to a raise of wages until the
ordinary "nigger" brakeman, without
any great effort, is making from one
hundred and twenty-five to two' hun hundred

month, while his" wife wears fancy
silk stockings and gold ornaments as
big round as a dinner plate (almost),
and I am not telling this entirely
from hearsay either. Yet all three of

shall eke out a "miserable existence"
during these times of high prices
and yet said teachers must be cultur cultured

However, the question now up for
consideration is not one as to how
much will be spent here and there
over the state for school purposes,
but as to whether the state constitu constitution

more freedom of action by our school
authorities, in the various counties as
their heeds require and their ability
permit a matter falling clearly with within,
in, within, the term "local option," or local
self-government according to Jeffer Jeffer-sonial

stand willing to be corrected Nor is
there any great resemblance in prac practical

which will prove a blessing, I trust,
toour children along educational and

treasonable and just according to the

All right, Lou; 'but if it hadn't been
for the local optionist, like the Roman

To Mr. R. S. Rogers: Yes, sir, I
pride myself that I know a few things
about school matters. WTiy should I
not when I have been interested in
them and actively engaged in some
phase of school work ever since I was
six years of age and most of that time
in Marion county, Florida?
Yes, again, I know, a few things
about Florida lands and why should
I not when I was raised on Marion
county soil and have been on it most
of my life?
Also, I think I know something of
the elements of a gentleman. Is this
knowing too much?
If the man who called on me and
was received with every consideration
of a gentleman made a single uncom uncomplimentary
plimentary uncomplimentary remark with reference to
me he showed himself utterly devoid
of the slightest mark of a gentleman.
The man to whom I presume you
refer came into, my office and in a
g'entlemanly manner introduced him himself
self himself as Mr. DeVore from Illinois. I
was as usual .very busy but laid aside

him that we had a full senior twelve

about five miles south of town on the
Belleview hard road and I told him
the exact, condition of things and told
that inasmuch as we had no school in
that neighborhood his school would be
the Ocala school and that it would be
very convenient to him.
He was interested in a tract of land
belonging to Mr. Smith and in which
I had not the slightest interest. I
spoke in enthusiastic terms of the
quality of the land and its location
and convenience for shipping and in

ago, and about that time Mr. Black Blackburn,

who was also originally from Illinois,
came in and he kindly offered to take
him out in the county on a trip to see

Governing Manufacturers, Dealers,
Brokers, and Commission Merch Merchants
ants Merchants in Butter
The attention of all retail dealers in
butter is called1 to rule 1 of the above
regulations, which reads as follows:
."Butter to be sold at reasonable
advance over cost. The licensed deal dealing
ing dealing in butter shall sell such butter
without regard to the market or re replacement
placement replacement value at the time of the
sale at not more than a reasonable ad advance
vance advance over cost to him of the particu particular
lar particular butter sold.
"Provided, that any dealer may av average
erage average the cost of all cold storage but butter
ter butter of the same grade placed by him
in a cold storage warehouse in any
calendar month and may sell such
butter at not more than a reasonable
advance over such average cost.
When a dealer averages the cost of
any butter stored in a calendar month
he must average the cost of all butter
stored in that month."
Cost for the purpose of this rule
shall include: : : t
. Purchase price.
2. Transportation changes, if any.
3. Storage charges .actually in incurred
curred incurred on cold storage butter.
4. Insurance charges actually in incurred
curred incurred on cold storage butter.
5. Interest on money invested 'at
the current rate, while butter is in
cold storage, v
6. Actual cost of printing if the
buter is put up in pfint form from
tubes "or cubes.
. Cost shall not include any allow
ances for -shrinkage in weight, conv-l
missions qr other exchanges than
those mentioned herein.
Under the above rule the retail secr
tion of. the distribution of perishables
of tlje U. S. food administration has
investigated the Cost of handling but butter
ter butter at retail. and has determined that
any advance in excess of '5 to -6 cents
per pound over cost (as defined in rule
1) is unreasonable, and will be con considered
sidered considered evidence of violation of rule
1. The 5 cents per pound represents
the maximum margin for stores con conducted
ducted conducted on the cash and carry, or no
service plan, while 6 cents per pound
is the maximum margin for the extra
service stores extending credit and
delivery. Dealers whose delivered
store door cost figures in fractions
may have the benefit of such frac fractional
tional fractional cost. "x
For example, butter costing at
store door 46&c per lb. would carry a
maximum margin of 5c per lb. for
the cash, and carry and no service
stores and 6c per lb. for the extra
service or credit and delivery stores.
In determining margins at 5c and
6c. a pound on butter- with the frac fractional
tional fractional costs in dealers' favor the -U.
S. food administration has given due
consideration" to the rising costs of
operation which must be met by the
dealer. TJiis maximum margin no
doubt will exceed in some instances,
the normal pre-war margin.'
In addition to the above margins
the retailer who carriers butter in
cold storage more than two calendar
months may add not more than 4c
per pound and an additional V c. for
each month thereafter during which
he carries the butter in cold storage.
The total amount for carrying butter
in cold storage so added, however,
shall not exceed 2c. per pound.
