Candidates Had About Half a Voter
Apiece at the Saturday After Afternoon
noon Afternoon Meeting
(The following article appeared in
yesterday's Star, but was so badly
mixed up that we feel it is justice to
the paper to reprint it.)
That the people of Mcintosh are a
thrifty lot was evidenced Saturday
when the candidates for county office
appeared in that live burg for the
purpose of presenting their claims to
the voters, and only a few of said
voters attended. Mr. Tulley L. Hick Hick-son
son Hick-son who had charge of the arrange arrangements,
ments, arrangements, said that everybody was busy
with bean and cucumber harvesting,
and Saturday being pay-day too, it
was almost impossible for them to
be on hand. However, shortly after
thiee o'clock, with the voters out-
numbered about two to one by the
aicates, ana a numoer oi laaies. me
speaking program was opened in the
beautiful public park pavilion.
Mr. Hickson, being master of cere ceremonies,
monies, ceremonies, introduced the speakers as
their names appeared on the pre prearranged
arranged prearranged program, which called for
Mr. L. S. Light, candidate for legis legislative
lative legislative honors, as the opening speaker.
Mr. Light, after relieving himself
of his coat and taking a hitch at his
suspenders, launched out with a line
of "Aggers" showing the vast expen expenditures
ditures expenditures of the federal government as
well as the state, citing that the for former
mer former had increased during the. oast
five years over 600 per cent, while the
state expenses during the same per period
iod period had increased over 500 per cent.
He said that the pendulum must at
' some time reach the turning point
and that the time is at hand. This
is the time, he said, when the. people
needed a man who knew the "figures"
to represent them in the halls of the
legislature, and he claimed to be that
man, making the statement that he
awas the best posted man in Florida
today along these lines. He said that
the "cards would be, stacked" on the
' novice, and his past experience made
him the logical man to go as our rep
resentative, instead of either one -:f
' the inexperienced men who were op op-posing
posing op-posing his candidacy. He claimed the
responsibility of killing over half a
million dollars in appropriations sub submitted
mitted submitted to the session of the legisla legislature
ture legislature of which he was a member, and
warned the voters against sending
his opponents there instead of him.
Mr. A. C. Blowers, the last candi candidate
date candidate to enter the legislative race, be-
gan his talk with an answer to Mr.
Light's assertion that there might be
a croolced deck sprung on the assem assembly,
bly, assembly, and said that in that event he
would immediately call for a new
deck. He stated that he was an en enthusiast
thusiast enthusiast on public education and
would not favor cutting appropria appropriations
tions appropriations for that purpose, but would
favor cutting off alleged grafting
jobs which apparently encumber the
present educational appropriations.
He said he believed that the salaries
of the gang of inspectors" who now
infest the state should be eliminated
and the money thus squandered should
be turned toward the better pay of
our public school teachers. As to his
position on the constitutional amend amendment
ment amendment for road bonds, hesaid that he
would be broad enough to follow the
wishes of his constituency regardless
of his personal views on the subject.
Mr. C. W. Hunter, first aspirant for
iegislative honors in group two, began
his address by referring to the
charges made against him that he had
no "record." He cited his activities
in various public enterprises, naming
among them taking the lead in bring
ing to Marion county the members of
the National Farmers Congress after
their meeting in Jacksonville, which
he claimed was worth many thousands
of dollars to our county; also leading
the movement to make the county fair
a financial success instead of an an
nual deficit producer. He said he
favored the Work of the state chemist
being done at the University of Flor
ida by experts employed at state ex expense,
pense, expense, instead of the present expen
sive red tape method employed, re
ferring especially to the analysis
of fertilizers. He favors putting to
work several hundred of the state
prisoners now being kept on the state
farm at Raiford on the public roads
He stated that there are now over 500
of them at Raiford, while the law pro
vides that less than one-fourth of that
number is to be used there. He claims
that with the release of that much
free labor now being used on the
roads it would place the farmer in a
position to raise a 100 per cent crop
in Florida instead of 70 per cent as
reports show is now being done. As
to the conduct of the various state
institutions Mr. Hunter stated that
he believed they could be operated
more economically and his efforts
wculd be directed to that end; in fact,
he said that "economy" would be his
watchword if the people sent him to
Tallahassee at the next session.

FROM A ONE-HORSE FARMER
Editor Star: I want to endorse an
editorial that appeared in the Star
about two weeks ago, on the no-fence
aw, forest fires and incidentally le-
ferring to the razor-back hog and
rattlesnakes. Every two years when
we have to elect men to represent us
in the legislature this no-fence ques question
tion question bobs up and disturbs the "minds
of our people, and makes some of
them fighting mad. but they don't
fight for they are too well civilized
for that game. The writer has a few
cows and razor-back hogs and if a
no-fence law were to be enacted he
might sell them and do without milk
or butter, bacon and lard or buy as
he has' oodles of money and these
things are so very cheap at present,
but we have always stood four-square
for our neighbors, many of whom
count their cattle with four figures
with the razor-backs thrown in for
good measure and they would be
practically pauperized by such a law
We are opposed to" a state-wide no-
fence law, yet if we lived perhaps in
some counties of this state or in some
communities of any county, we would j
want and advocate a local option law,
provided it did not work too great a
hardship on our outside neighbors.
When my neighbors become wor
ried over such a law my advice to
hem is not to lose any sleep for when
the time and conditions become oppor
tune then and not before will we have
no-fence law, and I advise them
further to find out how every man
who offers to serve the dear people
stands on this question before they
cast their vote.
Now as to forest fires. Every
stockman knows that when fire gets
out seemingly by accident through the
winter and burns over several hun
dred acres of land, when a warm
spell comes, the young, tender and
succulent grass springs up, cattle
gather there in droves and that juicy
grass helps mightily in tiding them
over the subsequent cold spells. The
legislature that passed the law pro
hibiting forest fires before March, re
minds me of the old negro woman
who was arraigned in court for abus
ing her children. While the judge was
severely reprimanding her for her
conduct, she said:
"Hold on, jedge; lemme ax you
"Well," says the judge, "what is
"Has you eber bin de fader of three
low-down, good-for-nittin, kinky kinky-headed
headed kinky-headed nigger boys?"
"No," said the judge.
"Well, den." she said, "you don't
know nuttin tall Tbout it."
Now we will say something about
the razor-back hog and it may be that

h'vA fields part of the time and raises
crops on them part of the time, lie
can't keep his cattle out of his crops
It has always seemed to us that the
no-fence business would settle itself
in time if it wras allowed the time. The
small farmers are more and more
given all the time to raising improved
cattle and hogs, and when they raise
them they don't like to turn them out
in the woods. We know much ground
now in high cultivation that was piny piny-woods
woods piny-woods and blackjack thickets twenty twenty-five
five twenty-five years ago, and if the increase
keep3 on in proportion in twenty-five
years more the state outside che
cities will be farmland and pasture
lands, with game preserves fenced
off, and in doing this there will be
no fence nor no-fence wars.
The letter elsewhere from a "One "One-Hoise
Hoise "One-Hoise Farmer" is worth "reading and
consideration by the thoughtful. In
these days when the classy agricul agriculturists

many people look down on the one one-.horse

realizing that they are the men who j
made Florida habitable, and may be j

belore another general election. Ihese
one-horse farmers are really our only
self-sustaining class; the only part of
our people that could live at home
and have a little left over if that "One
Big Union" gets in its work and stops
production and blocks transportation.
If we were a young man, we would
take "A One-IIorse Farmer's" advice.
We wonder if the people who are
denouncing buring the woods off ever
stop to think what would happen if
this was never done. Burn the woods
every year and the fire only makes a
medium blaze, easy to check and that
does not harm the timber. Keep the
wocds unburned for several years and
the undergrowth, leaves and needles
would be thick and high. A fire would
be bound to start some time a spark
from a locomotive, a careless man (
would drop a half-extinguihsed match,
pet haps some one would start a fire
out of meanness and then there ?
would be a blaze that would sweep
the forests out of the way like they
were patches of broomstraw, and
leave in places deserts of ashes miles
in extent. We have seen such fires
in other states and we don't want to

us consider it with moderation and
regard for the other fellow. In the
firsc place, get the idea out of your
heads that all the progressive states
have a no-fence law, for they haven't.
The matter has settled itself in most
of the big northern and central states
just as we want it to settle itself in
Florida farmers and stockmen have
bought up large tracts of land and
fenced in their cattle, as the cheapest
way to do. Now, there is at least
four-fifths of our state, maybe nine nine-tenths,
tenths, nine-tenths, uncultivated, and should we
keep- the poor man's cattle and hogs
oft that vast area to save some trou trouble
ble trouble and expense to a comparatively
small class? Only an unreasonable
man will say yes. We are having
conversation about local option on no no-fence.
fence. no-fence. Let us suppose we take our
smallest governmental unit a voting
precinct and the people in it vote
for no-fence. .How are they going to
keep the cattle of the next precinct
out? The cattle don't know where a
precinct line is, and they will come
across the line and destroy the crops.
You can't lawfully kill another man's
cattle you can only shut them up
and sue him for the damage done.
Which procedure will cost more in
money not to speak of hard feelings
than crops and cattle are worth. A
no -fence precinct can shut itself in
with barbed wire, but how about the
roads? A gate across a public road
is a nuisance, and every once in a
while somebody will leave it open and
the cattle will come in. It seems to
us that the best plan to follow would
be for the farmers of a thickly settled
neighborhood to get together and run
a common fence around all their
farms to cut off the cultivated land
from the pastures. It is not possible
to do away with fence. Every farm farmer

City council meets tonight, and the
people have some curiosity as to
whether it is going to make the Sea Seaboard
board Seaboard Air Line take precautions
against killing or crippling those
who have to cross the railroad at Ex Exposition
position Exposition street. The death of a col colored
ored colored man killed by a train at that
crossing a few days ago causes our
citizens to wonder when one of them
or a member of one of their families
will be a victim. There are six pas passenger
senger passenger trains every day, all exceed exceeding
ing exceeding the speed limit, and .several
freights, going over that street. There
is no more protection to the people
on that crossing today than there was
thirty years ago, when two passen passenger,
ger, passenger, twro mixed, and two freight
trains made the trip over it every
twenty-four hours. There is a strong
impression in Ocala that the city
council is afraid of the railroads,-and
the impression will become stronger
unless something to counteract it is
The people also wonder if anything
is going to be done to protect the
lives of pedestrians and conservative
autoists against the joyriders and the
incompetents at the wheels of many
ot the cars that traverse our streets.
The question is accentuated by the
accident to the Henderly boy on South
Main street yesterday. That street
is a death trap, always set. Scores
of competent and cautious motorists
have said to the Star that something
should be done to relieve its conges congestion,

wishes, but the council pays no at attention.
tention. attention. The disregard of traffic or ordinances
dinances ordinances in this city is marked by
not only our own people fbut by visi-
otr. Several cars are driven by boys
and girls with skill enough but not
the strength to handle them. Narrow
streets are crowded with cars parked
on each side, and not room for two
cars to pass in the middle, neverthe nevertheless,
less, nevertheless, many drivers exceed the speed
limit in these narrow spaces. This
was what caused the accident to the
Henderly boy yesterday. There is an
ordinance prohibiting cars from park parking

opposite the theater and for some
distance on each side. You can go
along there frequently while a per performance
formance performance is on and find big, seven seven-passenger
passenger seven-passenger cars, standing almost at
right angles with the curb, and with
their rear wheels half way across the
stret t. This does not give two cars
room to pass, sometimes for fifty
yards on one of the busiest streets m
town. We got out of a car in front
of the theater last night, and two
cars behind the one we were in had
to stop, because there was no room
to pass. Why do the police allow
this ? Several months ago we were a
witness in court against a taxj-driver,
who inspired by "shine" raced his car
around the square at high speed. He
was fined .$20. Many times since then
we have seen cars filled with young
people drive around the square and
up and down the principal streets at
greater speed. Last Sunday after afternoon,
noon, afternoon, a well dressed young lady driv driving

street, into the square and around it

her car at twenty miles an hour or
more. Now is the city government
