THE APPROACHING PROHIBITION
CAMPAIGN
In the approaching prohibition
campaign this paper will throw the
weight of its influence on the side of
those who are struggling to vote the
county dry
If it were to attempt to print all
the articles pro and con in a contest
of this kind it would be overwhelmed
with literature and some of the arti
cles would be compelled to go im
printed and the authors of the reject
ed articles would feel aggrieved so
our business manager has concluded
to fix a price for the publication of
these articles and the same has been
accepted by the literary bureaus of
the two factions
No article of a personal or offen
sive nature will be admitted into its
I
columns
I
There are two sides to all questions I
and an intelligent discussion of this
subject from able writers ought to
lead to helpful conclusions
I The editorial columns will reflect
the views of the editor and th e arti
I
cles will be written with as much
clearness conciseness and tolerance
I as he is able to bring to the task
I Articles appearing on the other
pages of the piper will be contribu
tions furnished by the saloon and
I antisaloon leagues

Mr Bittings Home Destroyed by Fire
The home of Mr S L Biuinc in
this city was completely destroyed
bv fire Wednesday morning about 7
oclock I
They had recently put in a new
I
stove pipe which had not been se
curely riveted and the flames from
the stove escaped through the pipe
catching the rafters of the kitchen
and in the short while the entire
house was in flames The home was
located near Exposition street and
beyond the fire limits so it was im
possible to save the house Fortu
nately most of the furniture was sav
ed by neighbors and those who re
sponded to the alarm
The house was a sixroom one and
was valued at about 1200 with only
300 insurance The loss of his home
is quite a blow to Mr Bitting and his
family
Mr Carl M Schneider who is with
the Buttgenbach Company at Elliston

Little Boy Breaks His Leg
Monday afternoon a sad accident
happened to little Charlie Duval of
Summerfield He accompanied his
parents Mr and Mrs S S Duval to
Ocala on the noon train They decid
ed to drive home late in the after
noon and for this purpose they hired
a livery team When nearing the residence
idence of Mr J J Gerig the horse be
came frightened and started to run
away Mr Duval and the little boy
leaped from the team the latter fall
ing under the wheels which passed
over his legs breaking one of them
above the knee and badly crushing
the other one Mr Duval was unhurt
except for several bad bruises and
cuts Mrs Duval remained in the
carriage which was stopped by two
iiHn who were passing in another ve
hicle
Quite a number of the people in
that neighborhood witnessed the ac
cident and the little fellow was car
ried tenderly on the veranda of 11 r
Gerigs house A phone message
quickly brought a physician to the
scene and the little sufferer was tak
en to the Ocala House where he and
I
his mother are now comfortably lo
cated The little fellow is suffering

I Fire at the Deck Davis Home
I b ell iesday night just before
I 730 oclock as Messrs Charles
Peyser and Jules Cohen were going
down town they discovered the res
idence of Mr D W Davis on South
Third street to be on tire They
quickly returned to their home near
by and phoned in a message to the
fire station and the department made
a quick response and reached the Da
vis home in time to prevent a serious
conflagration
The fire is supposed to have origi
I nated from the electric wires in some
I way getting in contact with the gas
jets and as we had a terrific electric
sorm in the afternoon the wires may
have been struck by lightning
The fire companies succeeded in ex
tinguishing the flames with their
I chemical apparatus and small hose
They found it unnecessary to turn on
j
the big host and thereby saved the
I furniture from Leif greatly lam
a ed
agedMr
I Mr Davis family were at Lake
Weir and Mr Davis was at the Ocnla
House at the time of the fire and no
one was in tlt house so the firemen
I were forced to break in a door and
window The lire was between the
wall at the front of the house

HIGHER SUBSCRIPTION PRICE
Indications All Point to the Passing
of the Dollar Weekly
The movement all over the state
toward a higher price for the country
weekly has been in evidence for some
time past Several Michigan papers
have already put the subscription
rate up from Jl to Slf 0 and in one
or two instances to 2 The latter
price prevails in the eastern states
and there are not a few Michigan
weeklies that charge 150 The Car
son City Gazette is one of the more
recent to make an increase
I The cause of this is evident The
price for nearly everything is higher
Living expenses all along the line
cost much more than ten years ago
It is so with all kinds of material The
rise has been steady Therefore the
question Must the Dollar Weekly
Go is one confronting the average
publisher these days Print paper
for instance when the Sentinel pur
chased its last car in January was
about 2J 5 per hundredweight Siiuv
then it has soared to 2 > ri and is still
going higher this following a gradual
rise during the past few years Body
type used in the publication af a
newspaper at 02 cents a opund as
compared with 21 cents in ISliH All
along the line the prices are up cor
respondingly But in the face of it
all the same old price for the weekly
popera dollar a year has prevailed
paper a dollar a year has prevailed
and even then many subscriptions
have to be carried more than a year
As this does not pay the cost of pro
duction it is from the advertising
that the deficiency for the most part
must come The demand of the read
er is for the paper that gets the news
Tire country publisher must give his
patrons a publication that will not
only command advertising patronage
but will hold and make patronage
against the competition of the city
papers which for advertising prest
ige are put out at a less cost though
in no sence locnl and cannot be But
the aim of the country puhiish r is to
I give his patrons the best family paper
well edited and clean and with these
conditions little wonder it is that
publishers all over the state are se
riously considering as never before
the problem that in many instances
here and there result in the announce
ment that the subscription price is
raised It has never hepJ1 s < o moot
ed n question as during the past six
month What will the coining
six months bring forth is asked by
ninny of them Certainly it seems
I hardly out of place to urge the year
I in advance policy as long as the
dollar a year price is maintained

Governor Hoch of Kansas on Prohibi
I tion in His State
The state was never so free from
saloons and joints as it is today It
was never so prosperous as It is now
materially and financially I do not
I believe that there is anywhere on
I earth 81600000 people maintaining a
higher standard of morals than the
1600000 who constitute the popula
tion of Kansas nor do I believe that
there are anywhere else on earth a
similar number of people enjoying
such freedom from pauperism and
poverty We have not only proved
the wisdom of the prohibition policy
so far as the moral and Intellectual
interests of the people are concerned
but we have established its wisdom

CARMACKS SPEECH n
Former Senator Carmaclc the
youthful Tennesseean was Invited to
make a Labor Day speech at Nash
ville and many of the newspapers of
that state were so pleased with his t > <
addn ss that he is now being urged to
a
feet me a candidate for governor
Mr Carmack said that the rail
roads of this country possess a power
of taxation such as is wielded by no
I power on earth That they have the
power to levy extortionate and dis
criminating freight rates and as long H
as this power was unchecked by legislation
4
islation it was fearfully exercised and
J
I
abused
Yet what are we to say when laws
are passed to prevent the unjust ex
ercise of this power and commission
ers are elected to see that the laws j
are properly enforced yet the dis h
criminations go on just the same I
without let or hindrance
Where there is one seaport city in if
Florida there arc dozens of interior i
cities socalled yet every interior
t
city is made to pay tribute to the sea 1
I
port cities
Mr Carmack says that It is the 1
e e riminations that crush individuals 1
and destroy cities If this he true 1
i
how can any interior community hope
to become a city with the fearful dis J
criminating freight rates in operation a
against them such as we Find today a
in Florida
Let us particularize
The freight on an automobile from
Port Huron Mich to Jacksonville is
J
fifty dollars
The freight on the same automobile
from the same city to Ocala is One
Hundred and Fiftynine Dollars
We are told by our merchants that
this is not an exceptional nor extraor i
dinary instance that all the mer
chandise shipped to Ocala is relative
ly in about the same proportion
With these extortionate and dis
criminating rates against them with
the sanction of the stat and inter
J1
state commissioners how is it possi
ble to ever hope to build up a city in i
The interior of Florida
VhiV not petition the railroad com j

FLORIDAS ADVANTAGES
J
By Governor Napoleon B Broward

Florida holds out or offers to that t
n
person who desires to cast his lot
with lirr and bp < onv a citizen more
advantages than any other state in
the Union from almost any stand
point that would ho of benefit to the
i
person desiring citizenship
t
Florida is the most southern por
tion of the Tnite States Florida is
a peninsular with a coast line atjgrc
I gating about 11 0 miles
The Gulf of Mexico is a warm body I
nf water and rlv Gulf Stream run j
ning lop to the pastern shore of I
Florida is warmer than it is at any a
other point where it touches any land t
in this country or in Europe
In most of this state crops can be
grown the year round and a greater
diversity of crops can be grown than
in any other state it costs less to
1
start business and to build houses
in other in the
here than any state I
Union at this time and the workman j
commands as high wages here as In
i
any state
In fact our natural advantages tak
ing into consideration our abundant
fish and oyster supply the salubrity
of the climate and the greater ease
at which one can secure a living add
to our advantages when contrasted
with those with any other of the
I
states and I cannot help but believe
that we would have our choice of Im
migrants were they not landed so far

that we have no agents and no bu
