In several recent issues the Ocala Star has assumed the position that the Ocklawaha Railway has forfeited it right to operate as a railway, that it was being operated for the benefit of a few individuals while owing the state thousands of dollars in unpaid taxes. The Star also charges that The ews is worried about what the Sheriff of Marion county proposes to do with the road. It says: '"jfhe Palatka News is worried about what the Marion county sheriff is going to do with the 0. V. railroad. For its particular information, we jvill state the sheriff doesn't seem worried at all. We suppose the road will raise the money to pay its taxes, but it should not be allowed to re sume running trains until it makes arrangements with the men who ad vanced the money to build the road. The Florida railroad commission ha acted like Lenine and Trtosky re garding this road, but now that Mr. Wells is on it we hope its behavior will be different." The Star's assumption as to our mental attitude is of no moment. This is the first line printed in this paper other than news stories chron icleing the efforts of the Comptroller to collect back taxes. But if it will do the Star any good we will admit that we are very much concerned as to the final disposition of the road. We are concerned to the same extent that we are concerned for the operation of other railroads in the state to serve people who ac cepted their promise to service and established homes and business de pendent on these roads for transpor tation. The Star remembers, per haps, that the Seaboard Air Line "wanted to quit serving the people who had granted franchise rights, but the courts stepped in and told them that they couldn't stop operat ing, a receiver was named and cer tificates issued to pay off taxes and indebtedness and immediately the road began to recoup some of its losses and is still operating to the benefit and profit of Ocala, as well as other points. The Star's reference to "the road," is vague as to meaning, but we as strmc that he means Receiver H. S. under the court's order for the bene Cumniings, who is operating the road fit of the creditors and has succeed ed ; in putting it on a paying basis, whether it has been through serving iis own private business interests or not. He must account to the court foil earnings, and if he can demon strate that he has managed the af fairs of the road that it will pay its indebtedness and be turned back to "the men who advanced the money to build the road," he will have ren dered a special service, not only to those who have purchased farms along the line, and who have estab lished timber camps for supplying manufacturing enterprises. We telieve the road should pay its taxes, and if it cannot operate at a sufficient profit to keep out of debt it should be put on the block, but un til this is proven, and while claims to the contrary are made by the re ceiver, we hope that the courts will permit an issuance of receiver's cer tificates, pay the state its due, anil continue to serve those dependent on its, operation for a livelihood and the business enterprises which are con venienced by it. We can now recognize Mexico, if Mexico will overlook that affair in West Virginia and recognize us. You see, hotel rates must be high enough to cover the cost of the tow els and soap the guests carry away. enough to keep the lower part of it closed. Well, if there had been a little re pression among buyers, there wouldn't have been so much depression among sellers.

The average wife can't understand how it happens that her husband does most of the work at the office and gets so little pay. One reason why tobacco chewing has lost favor is because there are fewer open fireplaces for the disposal of the by-product. .
