This, the littlest paper, sends
greetings and congratulations to our
next president, James Middleton Cox.
Summerfield Chronicle.
Littlest but one of the liveliest.
The county commissioners are fav
orable toward helping out the city of
Ocala with its white way around the
public square, which will add greatly
to the beauty of the town.
We clip the following chunk of
good sense from an exchange: "Let
ua all recognize that we have a new
load to get rid of and the only way to
red rid of it is "for everyone to take
off his coat and work ten hours a day
for the next two years, Instead of
working five or six hours a day."
Cox beat' Lowes ' definitely and
thoroughly over a contract sought by
Lewes to supply the city of Dayton
with arc lights at ?1UU each. Cox
learned that the city could purchase
them for $08.50. Through the News
he told Dayton all about it.- He said
things about "Doc" - Lowes which
caused that gentleman to sue for
libel. But a short time later the city
purchased its arc lights, paying
f(3.f0. "Doc" Lowes offerd-to settle
the libel suit for $1,, Cox declined
and the suit was forgotten, but not
Cox.; :. . v "-' V "
A Philadelphia syndicate was try
ing to get its trolley lines into Day
ton, with grade crossings. Cox
launched into a fight on them. This
grew excessively hot, and the law
yers for the syndicate dug up some
ancient Ohio libel laws and filed suit.
Under this forgotten statute the pub
lisher sued had to post a bond equal
to twice the amount sued for. The
syndicate was suing for half a mill
ion dollars. There was also a provis
ion under this old statute, that the
publication, sued should be closed by
the sheriff. Accordingly, the sheriff
appeared and put a padlock , on . the
front door of the News. Jimmie
promptly removed it. '
Won the Suit
The rival paper issued an extra
announcing that the News had been
closed up by the authorities. Fifteen
minutes after this news had beeii
spread broadcast there appeared an
extra edition of the News telling how
the syndicate had attempted to tam
per with the freedom of the press
After that Jimmie had no trouble
raising the $1,000,000 bond. He won
out in the libel suit and not long aft
erward exposed .the fact that the syn
dicate was taking control of small
banks in Ohio and using their capita
to promote its schemes. The trolley
lines and grade crossing were kept
cut of Dayton. i
The News and Cox were always in
a battle to improve civic conditions
and in the end they always came out
on top. The newspaper was wel
established in Dayton when in 1905
Cox acquired a 'Springfield, Ohio
newspaper.
In 1908 there was a split in the re
publican party in the district and two
republicans ran for the place as rep
resentative formerly ; filled by the
democrat, Sorg. Cox obtained the
democratic nomination and. thank
to the republican - fight, , was voted
into office. He got Dayton a nev,

is no principle in it, only, political ex

to be good citizens when they try to
have the constitutions of states vio
lated in order that they ; may obtain
the vote. President Wilson has no
right to ask the legislature of any
state to do anything for a political
purpose: Candidates Cox and Hard
ing are each, asking the move4 to be
made in order to obtain votes - for
themselves and their parties. - It is
not proper nor patriotic for either of
them to do so; neither is it good pol
itics, for the -women, have sense
trough to know that all this sudden
agitation in their : behalf is from in
terested motives. It's .the Star's
opinion that if the women obtain the
vote before November, most of them
will vote the republican ticket, even
if the action of a democratic -state
gives them the ballot. Whichever
party they vote against will receive
the just punishment of a vote-buyer.

KHIVA BECOMES A REPUBLIC
Famous Khanate of Central Asia Has
Definitely Rejected the Chains
of Despotism.
So Khiva, the khanate In Central
Asia through which Col. Fred Burnaby
I once, rode on horseback to the capital.
has declared itself an independent re
public! That prodigious English sol
dier and traveler who won military
glory fighting outside the endangered
square at Abu Klea, In the Sudan,
would smile hugely, no doubt, were he
able to read the news. For the. semi
barbaric city of Khiva as he found it
on that famous ride in the seventies,
or rather as the Russians found it Just
two or three years before, to be exact,
was filled with slaves captured from
the Persians by Turkoman raiders. Its
whitewashed houses, scattered amid
the elms and poplars, produced a wel
come effect, however, after, the count
less miles of arid steppes which had
to be negotiated before it could be
reached. Its " citizens were those
weirdly named ."cousins" of the
Turks, the Uzbegs, Kirghiz, Sarts, Ta
jaks and the Kara-Kalpaks, or Black
Bonnets of the Turkl tribe whom the
caliph would fain gather into the fam
ily fold. The khanate Is but the relic
of the once great kingdom of Choras
mia, over which King Darius ruled by
means of his satraps. ChrisUan

In 1912, when the republican party
split, Jimmie Cox was given the dem
ocratic nomination for governor and
was elected. Soon after he assumed
office came the floods of 1913. bring
ing disaster to many sections of Ohio,
and worst of all to Dayton, his home
The nevr governor" took charge, cu

In 1914 Cox was defeated for gov
ernor by Frank Willis, he who re
cently . nominated Warren G. Hard
ing, that other Ohior editor, to be the
republican pai-ty's standard bearer in
the presidential contest. In 1916 Cox
beat Willis by a narrow margin. In
1918, running on his record as a war
governor, he aain defeated Willis
but by a narrow margin. ,

governor, Cox- was : Sued for divorce
The papei s'char eed crueltv. Friends
and foes alike seem pretty well agreed
that there was , nothing discreditable
to the governor m this affair. He
had three children. There is Helen
now Mrs. Daniel J. Mahoney. whose
husband is vice president of the News

pany of . the two Cox newspapers

lives with his mother, who . has mar

: All during the years in Dayton a
tenderly cared for member of the
Cox household was the governor's
mother, that Mrs. Cox who was di

when the first news of his nomination
was clicked out of. a telegraph wire
in the News office.
In 1917 Governor Cox married Miss
Margaretta Parker Blair, of Chicago,
daughter of the- wealthy Thomas P.
Blair. . They have one child, the tiny
Anna Baker Cox, whose picture
adorns the parlor of old "Gib" Cox.
The governor and Mrs. Cox live at
Trail's End, a magnificent home he
has built on a 70-acre plot about four
miles fronruthe heart of Dayton. Not
veiy long ago he purchased that old
farm at Jacksonburg where he lived
as a. boy. He acquired some of the
adjoining land, so that the place now
encompasses 250 acres. These he has
fashioned into a model' farm with
new-fangled agricultural machinery
and blooded stock that makes old
Gib tremble with eagerness whenever
he talks about it. . .
When in Columbus the governor
and his wife live at a hotel.
Cox has a build . like a football
back.'except for a waistline that would
not be tolerated by the most lenient
of coaches and which he struggles to
reduce by fairly regular golf and
horseback riding. The governor con
siders himself a pretty good golfer.
He is of medium height," 'broad of
shoulder and he walks with an ag-
gressive swing, ins . neaa is ouiiet-
shaped, and his chin is strong and
backed up by an assistant chin. His
mouth is firm and turns down a trine

floor, flops down on his knees and

PLAN SCHOOL ON SHIPBOARD
Socialistic Council of Bradford, Eng
land, Is Considering the Adoption
of Remarkable Scheme. . ,
When it became necessary to erect
a .new secondary school In Bradford,
the rich wool textile center of Eng
land, the usual estimates were asked
for, and reported, in the total sum of
$500,000. - -
Socialists, who' have a considerable
majority on the Bradford education
committee, at once decided to break
free from tradition, and adopted the
Idea of buying a suitable seagoing ship
for that amount, one big enough for a
couple of hundred children. These,
children will be sent to sea for a six
months or 12-months period, if a sub
sequent suggestion Is adopted. -
It Is stiH to be settled whether the
ship schoolhouse will remain moored
In Bradford canal docks, only going to
sea as a freighter during vacation pe
riods, or whether it would not be In
the Interests of a general education to
let the scholars see glimpses of for
eign ports, learning their languages
among natives, , the ship at the same
time being loaded with cargoes that
would pay full maintenance expenses,
probably even of the boarding of the
children. '
