About The Daytona Gazette=news (Daytona, Fla.) 1901-1922
The Gazette-News of Daytona began publication in the 1890s and continued until January 26, 1901. On that date, it was succeeded by the Daytona Gazette-News, also known as the Ormond Gazette-News. This successor newspaper ceased publication in about 1922.
Both papers covered news of traffic up and down the Florida coast. The St. Johns and Halifax River Railway, later renamed the Florida East Coast Railway, reached Daytona–present-day Daytona Beach–in 1886, a decade after the city had been incorporated. Daytona proved to be a new American city for the new American Century. With the railway’s arrival, Daytona’s proximity to the ocean made it a premier tourist destination. The history of racing in Daytona is also well documented, beginning with car races along the beach, followed by more organized races inland on oyster shell and later asphalt speedways. The newspapers also reported on the use of automobiles for stumping the state politically. Finally, researchers can find references to the activities of Florida transportation and tourism pioneer, Henry Flagler.Provided By: University of Florida

Other reports document the use of automobiles for stumping the state politically. The St. Johns & Halifax River Railway, later renamed the Florida East Coast Railway, arrived in Daytona (FL), present day Daytona Beach (FL), in 1886, a decade after the city had been incorporated in 1876.
