I A, large number of our citizens want Dr. Chace to be a candidate for the office of alderman at large at" the coming city election. He is one of the best men in Ocala for the place. Bulgaria denies that she has Ger man officers in her armies. Judging by the way the Bulgars fought in 1912-13, they do not need to import officers. Advices from Marianna state that Hayes Lewis will not be a candidate for governor next year. That will save Hayes a lot of useless work and worry. It is not necessary for the Germans to do any spying on our navy. The Hon. Josephus Danials give3 out all important information to the entire world. guide to tourist travel to the South. Its an elegantly printed and interest ing publication and devotes a large amount of its space to Florida. On page 23-24 is a picture of the club house of the Ocala Country Club, and on page 21-22 is the following refer ence to our city: "Ocala, Fla. Rows of majestic trees, beautifully draped with moss, border the streets of this attractive town. The famous Silver Springs, the terminus of two Oklawaha river steamer lines, which ply between that point and Palatka, is only six miles distant, and is easily reached by au tomobile, carriage or bicycle, over a splendid hard roadway. Ocala's Country Club and its golf links, said to be the prettiest nine-hole course in Florida, which is accessible to tour ists, and its two firstclass hotels, at tract many visitors." t CODRINGTON IS OPPOSED TO A COMPROMISE A few weeks ago, it was announc ed that if Britain shut off the supply of cotton, it would soon be impossi ble for the Germans to make am munition. Late dispatches announce that the Germans are making ex plosives out of wood pulp, of which they have plenty. The Star, desires to impress on the citizens of Ocala the necessity and propriety of their turning out in force on Farmers' Day to help the country people clean up the fair grounds. It is one of the matters that should be particularly looked after by the Board ' of , Trade at its meeting tomorrow night. Mr. W. T. Haizley of Tampa, cash ier of the Florida Citrus Exchange, was in town yesterday and attended the meeting of the local citrus grow ers' exchange and packing house as sociation and gave them a very inter esting talk and some valuable sugges tions. Incidentally, he brought up for the local citrus boys $4500 in cash from the parent organization's treas ury. President Wilson will be at the opening of the World's Series in Phil adelphia Friday, and all Ocala people who will be at the Temple theater at the same time can have a good report of the game right off the wires. A few years ago, Ocala people would have had to wait for this report twenty-two hours. Let all admirers of the game turn out in force and help the public-spirited men who make this public accommodation pos sible. V alrous, representing to 'my mind the noblest principles men ever contend ed for, it being the custof for the sons of our veterans to hold their an nual meeting and reunion at th-3 same time and place, the Marion County Board of Trade extends you through its secretary a warm wel come ana cordial invitation to coma to Ocala Oct. 27-20th, as. the date fixed by General Roseborough for the holding of the veterans' reunion. This may be Ocala's last oppor- unity to extend her hospitality to these grand old survivors of the lost cause reunited and happy under the Stars and Stripes. Come, come; with open arms and warm hearts we bid you welcome, join with us in honor ing their visit to Ocala. May the guardian of peace keep close vigil over them, the Sons and Daughters, ,and at last give us a grand, glorious, triumphant reunion around the white throne with the great captain to welcome all. Yours truly, J. D. Rooney, Secretary. The editor of the News expects to attend the big meeting of the various press associations of Florida, to be held in Jacksonville October 13, 14 and 15, and he gives notice that he will oppose any effort, made by any one, to secure the passage of a reso lution favoring the granting of rail road mileage in exchange for advertis ing. If an editor wants to exchange subscriptions or advertising for stove wood or potatoes, bread or meat, with any individual or firm, well and good; but the rule must not apply to quasi public utilities. The newspapers of Florida are today the freest, the most outspoken, the cleanest in the United States, and they must remain that way. We want no affiliation with "the interests." We never want it to be intimated that we are "controlled by railroad passes." Let the railroads continue to pay for their advertising in cash, and the editors pay for their transportation in cash. We might as well make an effort to exchange ad vertising for postage, which amounts to more to us, in dollars and cents. DeLand News. Very likely it would be safest to stick to the present law. ON THE JOB Dr. Cook, who claimed to have dis covered the North Pole, was arrested by the British in Burma a few weeks ago. He was on his way to the Him , alayas, intending to try to climb Mount Everet, the highest mountain in the world. The British suspected him of being a German spy and con fi seated his moving picture outfit. Afterward, they released him, but re fused to allow him to proceed. Dr. Cook lectured in Ocala summer before last. Two entire pages of the September number of "Fire and Water Engineer ing," the New York magazine devot ed to fire protection, are "given to the department of Miami and its appar atus. There are pictures of the cen tral fire station and the aerial truck and a portrait of Chief Engineer Chase. It is of interest to Ocala fire men and property owners, because the city has ordered from the Amer ica La-France Co. a combination motor truck, an engine in successful use in many cities and bound to add to the efficiency of our department. A similar machine is in use in Miami. If Bulgaria joins the Teutons and Turks, she will help them immense ly, but she will suffer herself. Her southern coast is open to the Allies and her western to the Russians. She will certainly be attacked at once. If Greece joins the Allies, they can send troops and supplies thru Saloniki into Serbia probably much faster than the Teutons can force their way south. It is only about sixty miles from the Hungarian frontier across the northeast corner of Serbia to Bulgaria, but they will be a mighty rough sixty miles for an invading army. The way will be across the mountains in the face of men who have amply proven their fighting ability. The advent of Bulgaria into the war will almost certainly bring Roumania in on one side or the other. It is not possible to say which side, but she probably favors the Allies. The Star has received a copy of "Tropical Trips," which is issued ev ery autumn by the passenger depart ment of the Atlantic Coast Line as a Mr. A. E. Barnes of Tampa, the new manager for the Ocala packing house, is in the city and has assumed his duties as manager for the new in dustry. Mr. Barnes is an experienced man, has been with the Florida Citrus Exchange in Tampa for-several years and prior to that time was for many years manager of one of the largest local packing houses in California, He thoroughly understands his busi ness and is going to be right on the job till the house is up, the machin ery installed and every box of the fruit has passed through the house and gone to market. STRAUB AWARDS THE LAUREL TO THE STAR PUSHING THE PACKING HOUSE; The Messrs Taylor are now push- j ing forward the work on the big and substantial packing house for the i Ocala Citrus Packing House Associa-j tion. The house will be finished and the modern machinery installed well before the first fruit - is ready to wash, pack and ship. WESTERN UNION LINES TO NEW ORLEANS OPEN The Western Union Telegraph Com pany now has several lines to New Orleans. The work of restoring these lines was greatly impeded on account jof heavy rains, aji their efficiency is at present below normal, due to heavy wind and continued rain. The damage was so severe that train service by some of the routes will not be restor ed for several weeks. J. Ocala, Fla., Oct. 2, 1915. D. Rooney, Secretary, Marion County Board of Trade, Ocala. Dear Sir: Your esteemed favor of the 25th mlt, extending invitation to confederation of the Sons of Confed erate Veterans to meet in general as sembly in your city on the 27th, 28th and 29th of October, through me, has been received. As commander of the federation, in behlf of the organization, I accept the invitation with much pleasure. It has been the custom that the Sons' reunion be held at the same time and place as the reunion of Veterans, as ours is simply an auxiliary organiza tion of the Veterans.

I am handing you general order calling the convention of Sons to this city on the above mentioned dates. ' Most sincerely yours, W. W.

The fair management agrees with Dr. Blitch that such, a getting to gether of the men of the county will result in much good to all concerned. With this in view they have set the day designated as "Farmers Day" by the governor, Friday, October 8th, as the most fit time for such a meeting. The day designated as "Farmers' Day" is for the farmer and so is the Marion County Fair. Brother farmer do you know that it would be impos sible to have a fair without you? Ocala men, do you know we cannot ave a fair without your staunch support. This fair is for the good and enjoy ment of all, so let us get together at our fair grounds as early as possible on the morning of October 8th and put things in good shape and save to our association the money that would have to be paid out for this work. We very much desire that all parts of the county should be represented, and would especially like to have the chairmen of the different committees. in order to discuss plans for the com pletion of the committee work. Bring your lunches and come arm ed with forks, rakes and hoes. We can also use to good advantage three or four teams with wagons. Don't forget the date, and every man in the county who can possibly do so be on hand. If you can't come, send some one in your place.

ORDER OF EASTERN STAR (St. Petersburg Times) The Ocala Star received the laure for the first and briefest and best edi torial sermon on the Mendenhall tragedy, and it is now entitled to it for the first and briefest and best one on the verdict. An entire editorial consists of these nine- words: "After a few years Mendenhall will be pardoned out." And aye! there's the rub. It is probably true. That doubtless is why so many who do not wish the life of any man deliberately taken neverthe less blame the jury for recommend ing mercy. So much of all Florida history warrants the conviction that what was intended for mercy will re sult in full pardon. The pardoning system and practice of Florida car ries a terrible load of guilty respon sibility for criminals and crimes in the state whose good name it is sup posed to uphold and protect. MRS. CRIGLER Mrs. Mary E. Crigler, aged seventy-three years, died this morning at the residence, 604 Cleveland street, Hyde Park, after an illness of about two months.
