No doubt Claud4 Kitchin suites the

We will nave a primary this year,

nobody is obliged to abide the result.

The comments of Herbert Felkel in

We can assure our senators t and

is concerned, they will best please the

It is f the belief . of the "Allies ? that
the Germans contemplate a tremen
dous offensive tfn the western front as
soon as weather permits. The points
of the 'principal -efforts of the Teu
tons are problematic. It is the gen
eral1 opinion that they will strike their
heaviest blows east and west of Ver-
dun, as breaking thru the French, line
at those places would cause a retreat
on a' wide front with disastrous re-
sults., If the Germans fail in this at
tempt, the war may end this summei
or autumn. If they win, there is no
telling when it will end.
The metal trades council of Tampa
has adopted resolutions saying it is
tired of working for the kaiser."
The council is composed of delegates
from five metal trades unions and
represent some 600 men. It went on
record as urging the Emergency
Fleet Corporation to commandeer the
plant of the Tampa Shipbuilding &
Engineering Company, and complete
the work on the War Wonder and the
War Work, the two steamers 'which
the said company is so extraordinar
ily slow in building, owing, it is said,
to , the bad ;' management of Ernest
Kreher,- the German-American man
ager who owns a majority ' of' the
stock and consequently controls the
company. Seems to the Star its about
time for the government to put the
skids under Mr. Kreher. When asked
a few - months - ago to buy liberty
bonds,; he is said to" have refused, say
ing thet money would be used against
"his people," meaning the Germans.
Had conditions been reversed, were he
an "American-German" in Germany,
such a speech would hardly have been
out of his mouth before' he would
have been in jail. He is not the proper
person to be in charge of any .work
needed by the government.
The religion of the Quakers forbids
them to fight, but not to work, and
there is a small army of English and
American Quakers in Europe, work

their expenses. Some are jrf the hos

dustrial work that releases men foi
the army. No sect has ever been
more uncompromising in its oppost

The British i ; and , French' . , on

of which is;,- ..

The-lstate tax! commission suggests
a, .series of meetings, to be held with
the tax assessors and commissioners
of the', different counties during Feb

j The numerous friends of Mr. Nor

been some time since that important
section of the county has had a repre
sentative in the legislature and the
people over there think with consider
able justice that they now have a
claim on the office. Mr. Fort's knowl
edge of the county is not sectional,
however. He has been on the board of
commissioners a long time and nobody
is better posted on the - needs of the
county, and, in fact, this part of the
state, than he.
Anybody would be justified in think
ing that all classes of -the Germans
were vigorously standing by and help

cans are. " : .
For the third time in two weeks,
Chicago is threatened with a blizzard
that will cut off fuel, food and milk

The rank inadequacy of the bulle

partly atoned for by the ticket agents

The T.-U. continues to ask why the
government doesn't take the tax off

her go. If she was killed, as she prob
ably would be, the principal effect
would be to make our soldiers and bur
people more disposed to fight.

administrator, passed some . hours in
Ocala Saturday, interviewing our
grocers and others best able to help
