It -a.s announced today that Malcolm Meacham, of Palm
Beach and New York city, has purchased the tract in the
easterly part of the city from the Key West Realty Company
for half a million dollars.
The properly comprises approximately one thousand
aicre,- and includes the salt: ponds, used three-quarters of a
century ago in the manufacture of salt in Key West. The
points will be converted into the most novel yacht basins in
the cotnatry.
More than si:< miles t' water frontage is included in the
tract. which extends from the ocean to bay, and with Flagler
avenue, or the County road, running through it.
Thi' deal was consummated hy Johnson & Johnson, well
known realtors of this city,
Thu Meaeham Corporation of New York is one of the
largest in that city. It has made some of the foremost develop--
ments in New York and nearby states, as well as in Florida.
A year and one half ago the corporation purchased six miles
of ocean frontage along the Indian River, and seven hundred
acres for a town site which is now known as Olympia and
Otlympin Beach. That tract Wes twenty-five miles north ot
Puitlm Beach.
One of Most Important
O i'yimpa n dy is one of the most important cities it:
I.,,rida that h m'now in the making, and the same thing the
corporation is doing there it will do on the tract in bKy
IMr. Meacham is president of the corporation, vice presi-
dent of the Palm Beach National Bank. and is classed among
the greatest developers that have ever come to Florida. H1i
has a thorough knowledge of the East and West Coasts of
Florida and also the Florida Keys, and, in making an investi-
gation for his next development, which led him on several
occasions, to various parts of the state, he was absolutely
convinced that the Key West project offers far more-
advantages than any other'he had under consideration.
In other words, as was remarked in story in The Citize,:
yesterday, in quoting part of a letter written by a P.,nto:
developer, "Key West"il at present the one best bet in aln
Florida." Mr. Meacham and the great interests he repre-
sents also entertain that view, and, it was because of thei'-
conviction in that respect that they deeded to make the

"When we build, let us think that we
build forever. Let it not be for the present
delight, not for the present use alone. Let
it be such work as our descendants will
thank us for, and let us think, as we lay
stone on stone, that a time is to come when
those stones will be held sacred because our
hands have touched them, and that men will
say as they look the labor and wrought
substance of them: "See! This our Fathers
did for us." --John Ruskin.


(Wall Stroet Jourtal)
It is difficult to guess what the editorial writer
of the New York Herald Tribune means, or ,hat hoi
thinks he means, when he says "the American news.
paper has always been an institution affected with
a public interest." That is a legal phrase, in the
nouth of a layman, uand is ventured with, the umual
results. It is flatly untrue, but there is much
ignorance and hypocrisy about the latter, calling
for some plain speaking.
A newspaper is a private enterprise, owing
nothing whatever to the public, which grants it no
franchise. It is therefore "affected" with no pub.
lic interest. It is emphatically the property of its
owner, who is selling a manufactured product at his
own risk. If the public does not like his opinions
or his method of presenting news the remedy is in
its hands. It is under no obligation to buy the
To, say that a public interest is created because,
newspapers are carried in the mails at special rates:
fixed by the postoffice itself, is sheer nonsense
If that were true, everything else carried in the
mails would be affected with a public interest.
It is eminently desirable that newspaper proprie.
tors should be well-informedil and conscientious. Some
of them are, and someo of them arc not. That is i
matter of which the public must judge for itself.
Without in any way belittling the president's re-
marks to a recent gathering of editors, it may be
said that those editors, except where they own their
own newspapers, take their policy from their em-
A strong paper is established when it possesses.
a proprietor and an editor whose views are thorough.-
ly in accord, and particularly when the proprietor
recognizes that his chief editorial writer Is just ts
much a specialist as the mechanics in the printing
department. It may well be, andt it is sometimes
the case, that the proprietor of a newspaper has
given every bit as much study to the public questions
as his editor. So much the better. The stronger
the owner the better his editor is likely to be, and
the more fit to be trusted with a free hand.
But for ridiculous obvious reasons, there are

many newspaper owners willing enough to encourage
the public in the delusion that it is the editor of a
newspaper who dictates the selection of news and
the expression of opinion. He only does so subject
to the correction and suggestion of the proprietor
of the paper who, most properly, considers his news.
paper as a plain business proposition. It is just that,
no more and certainly no less, and public is all the
better served when there is no pretense of being
anything else.
There is altogether too much meddling with
the law of supply and demand in what is still the
most highly competitive business in this country.


I will vote at every public election, trying first
to inform myself on the candidates and the questions
to be voted upon.
I will try to buy stock in some local industry
or utility serving my own locality, and help it to
build up payrolls and values and sobriety in my
home town.
I will obey the laws as they are written; it may
be as offensive to my neighbor for me to dodge
taxes or make booze or exceed the speed laws, f
it is to me for him to rob or burn or violate my
I will work at my job as though I believe int.
I will try to make my street the beat street in
I will practice the belief that prosperity and
good government and neighborly love is here now,
and to stay, if I will but accept and live it.

If there is anything that does ,as much harm
itas worry, it is hard to find in the abstract at least.
This habit contracted in a moment of fear or dread
can be prolonged, coddled into stability and stand-
ing throughout the whole lifetime, What worry
brings is only trouble.
The anticipation of something horrible or fear-
ful or dreadful is not prevalent at all times among
men. They know with reasonable certainty that the
world is right, that things are going fairly well atd
that despite all of the handicaps and dangers men
live and move and are happy. So they cease to
worry until something they can define and under.
stand threatens. Then worry brings relief and solace
and perhaps a means of meeting the danger suc-
So many men have gone prematurely to theiiv
graves by means of worry. They are worried about
themselves, their failing, their business and other
things general anil specific until it becomes a mania,
They are hypocondriacs and all other sorts of dern
fools and usually about nothing. The psychology of
life is too well known and understood to add to its
trouble by expecting and waiting for others.
When you worry, you don't forget. The mind
ke,,p at it awake or asleep. It is beset, besotten
with something that it ought not to have and the
result is a condition that eventually ssnumes the
character of melanicholia, which is merely a derange-
ment of the normal functions of the mind. Not all
people worry all the time, not all people worry even
much of the time, but somnu do and they are the
most miserable beings that tread the earth.

cate in a year or ten years if you live that long.
We hear people say "Don't Worry" every day,
it's a common thing to have people know that you
are worrying and think they can inifunce you to
quit i1y merely telling you. It takes than that
but as little as you may think, the ii-.essant drone
of 'don't worry" will eventually have it -effect and
youu will become injured with the idea that you aro
aone of a very few fools that can't seem to get
back to reason.

Washington (always looks forward to presidential
inauguration day as a time for a. great glorification,
the motive for which is not so much to do honor
to a new president, as to attract a crowd of visitors
who shall boom business al the stores and hotels.
These intere.ista have a right to agitate for that kind
of a function, yet their ardor should be a little curb-
ed by the thought that intiu'uration ceremonies are
not. held for that purpose.
There may he no very serious objection to a big
and splendiferous affair, if a president cares for
such display and the people of Washington wish it.
Still, most presidents would pIroably prefer a quieter
Their minds are concentrated on the problems
which they are trying to solve, and on their desire to.
get their ideas over to the people. They might feel
that a big spectacular event would take the thoughts
of the people away from the real business; that has
to be taken up, and interfere with the attempt to
concentrate public sentiment in favor of the
measures of legislation that are needed.
They would probably think that if such a cele-
ietion were to be held, it would be more appropriate
if it came at the end of a presidential. term rather
than at its beginning. Then it could be a recogni-
tion of the work that had been done, whereas such
an event at the beginning of a term, if it is made a
big jollification, is a celebration of events that are
yet in the future. The primary purpose of the in.-
auguration otf a president, a governor, or other of-
ficial of a state or city, is to attract attention to
the real work that needs to be done. Parades and
balls and other such spectacular doings do not ac-
complish that purpose.

Why should not such an One bo

Why should He not break the bonds
of the tomb and, rising bodily from
the grave, ascend into heaven?
All the questioning that has dis-
turbed the religious world is due to
a failure to understand the real
character of Christ. The Bible des-
cribes one Christ and describes Him
consistently throughout; it is another

A Different Petition
The truth se't forth in the above
quoted verse is confirmed further on
in the prayer. The completeness of
the revelation of Christ is affirmed:
"For I have given unto them (the
disciples) the word. which thou
'avest me."
In their presence, Christ, adress.-
ing the Heavently Father, declares
that they "have known surly that I
came out from thee," and that God
*did send Him.
The next verse of the prayer pre-
sents a petition that is quite differ-
ent in its scope from other petitions
offered by the Savior. He is not
at this time praying for the world
in general, but only for those whom
SHe can claim as His own-those
"which thou hast given me." It is
affectionate language as mortals use
at the fireside. The world is shut
out for the moment and those whe
belong to the family circle are
brought into the presence of the
Iloavenly Futher with the prayer
that they may be precious In God's
Christ's Plea For Unity
Next we find a petition for unity:
"Keep through thine own name
I those whom thou hast given me, that
they may be one, as we are."
What an impetus Christianity will
receive when this prayer is answer-
ed even without organic union, there
can be unity of spirit, and co-opera-
tion without friction, just as many
families, each constituting its own
separate home, can unite in har-
monious co-operateive effort for the
benefit of the community.
I' friction is inexcusable any-
wlhere. it is among tho.e who wor-

Of Great interest To All
The development of the easterly part of Key West has been a pro-
ject that has intensely interested residents for many years, and the ac-
complishment of which they have felt positive would. be a mighty factor
in promoting the progress of Key West.
Graphic mental pictures of attractive cottages, bungalows, fishing
lodges and hotels and, more appealing to the imagination than anything
else, yacht basins in the heart of the development, have been frequently
painted in The Citizen, for The Citizen, in common with residents gen-
erally, realize that the tract owned by the Key West Realty Company,

At the head of that coming fatryland is the most beautiful scene in
the entire stretch of the Florida Keys--Nature's own, yacht basin, flanked
on the west by Key West, on the east by Stock Island, on the south by
Cow Key, while shimmering through the opening between Stock Island
and Cow Key lies the pearly white sand beach on Boca Chica. It will
be through that basin that the canal leading to the' ocean will be dug.

The recent bus ordinance passed
by the City Council has been the
subject matter of considerable dis-
-ussion among our people, and
imong quite a percentage of our
patrons neither our purposes or

-. that reason it is desired to
publish the ordinance, and the
Mayor's disapproval, together with
such comments, necessary for an
About a year ago the representa-
tives of The Key West Electric
Company appeared before the City
Council, and frankly stated the con-
ditions prevailing in Key West, as
applied to the service, giving a
statement of our revenues and ex-
penses. This was done with a view
of obtaining some relief. The City
Council referred our request to the
finance committee of the City Coun-
cil, with instructions to make an
exhaustive examination of our busi-
ness, and to make such recom-
mendations to the City Council as
the committee found to be necessary
based on the results of the investi-
gation. The committee promptly
met with the management of the
Company, and made an exhaustive
examination, with the result that
the committee decided the company
was entitled to some consideration.
After a year's work in many con-
frowenvcs an ordinance was prepared
looking' to the substitution of anl
adequate bus service for the local
transportation, instead of the pres-
ent street car service. The com-
mittee made other suggestions, and
the ordinance which was introduced
and passed by the City Council was
the result of the year's work.
The ordinance does not represent
the idea of The Key West Electric
Company, neither does it wholly
represent the idea of the committee,
but like all wise legislation it is the
result of many compromises. The
.spirit of giving and taking prevailed

Council ntnd with the management

pany. The ordinance passed by the
" City Council is as follows:
An Ordinance Entitled:
Be it enacted by the City Coun-
cil of the City of Key West:
Section 1. The Key West Elec-
tric Company shall place in tem-
porary operation over its present
street railway line for a period of
three months such standard buses or
trackless motor vehicles as will meet
the approval of the City Council.
Section 2. At the end of said
period, said City Council may fully
approve of the service and the de-
sirability of the change, such ap-
proval to be solely within the dis-
cretion .and control of said Council,
and if such approval shall not be
given, then and in that event all of
the terms and provisions of this Or-
dinance shall be null and void.
Section 3. If the ap roval pro-
vided in Section 2 shafl be af-
firmatively given, then permission
is hereby given by the City of Key

with the said City of Key Vest to
substitute within a reasonable time,

tants of the City of Key West,

contracts granted to said The Key
West Electric Company, or now held
by it as. assignee of any former

chises, and grants now in exist-
Section 4. That in case there
shall arise a dispute between the
City of Key West and The Key
West Electric Company, as to the
adequacy or sufficiency of the ser-
vice rendered by The Key West

buses, and the said City of Key
West and The Key West Electric
Company cannot agree between

trator whose name shall be certi-
fied by the City to The Key Wew.

ing to the City of Key West the

the said The Key West Electric

majorhy thereof, and it shall be-
come effective on the first day of

jurisdiction. Should the Key West
Electric Company fail to select and
certify to the City'of Key West the
name of an arbitrator within sixty
days from the date of its notifica-
tion to do so by the City of Key
West, then by due adoption by
resolution showing service of said
notice and the failure by The Key
West Electric Company to submit
the name of said arbitrator. within
sixty days, and the duly certified
copy eB such .wesolutiQn to The Key
West Electric Company, through
any of its resident officers or
agents, the City of Key West shall

certain a just und reasonable reg-
ulation to be made in the premises

ties or subject matter.

Board after appointment and or-
ganilation, shall have the power to
inspect the books and records of
The Key West Electric Company,

Mayor, City of Key West.
It will be seen by Section 1, that
4The Key West Electric Company
was given permission to place in
TEMPORARY operation for a
period of three months, motor
buses. These buses had to be of
such type as to meet the approval
of the City Council. No one retain-
ed any power over the operation, or
retained any authority for decision
except the City Council, the direct
representatives of the people.
Section 2 provides that in the
event the bus service did not prove
satisfactory, then all the provision
of the ordinance, the ordinance it-
self, become null and void, and the
company's rights, privileges and
duties would revert back to their
original status, as completely as if
the ordinance had never passed. The
power of deciding was solely vested
in the City Council. That body was
given absolute discretion to decide.
The Key West Electric Company
suggested Lh':; because of its con-
fidence, that tec service would be
such that it would commend itself
to our people as a decided improve-
ment, and in keeping with moderAi
methods throughout the United

It will be observed by Section 4
of the ordinance, that the City' had
greater privileges and power over
the company in the operation of
buses, than it now has over 'the
operation of street cars. Whenever
any question of the adequacy or
the sufficiency of the service was
raised the. City had the power to
direct The Key West Electric Com-
pany to improve its service, and in
the event an agreement was not
reached between the City and the
company, then an independent
Board of Arbitration could be em-
ployed to decide the question. This
arbitration agreement is in line
with modern thought. The City to
have a direct representative on the
Board, and The Key West Electric
Company to have a direct repre-
sentative, and then the two appoint
a third, and the decision of this
Board would be final, even although
the decision was not unanimous. A
majority consisting of two, the in-
dependent arbitrator and the City's
representative, would make rules
and regulations for the service. A
careful reading of this section is
specially invited.
Section 5 confers upon the Board
of Arbitration the power to summon
witnesses, to make examination of
The Key West Electric Company's
business, and to obtain all informa-
tion necessary to a complete in-

the service had improved to such a .
point, when everyone agreed, that
it Was a decided improvement and a


step forward, then, The Key West
Electric Company agreed to re-
move its tracks and all other ap-
pliances, that may be an. encum-
brance or unsightly, and to repair
all streets and sidewalks, and any
other injury that may be done in
the removal of the tracks anp-
plHinces. It will be noted that in
Section 7 of the ordinance that if
for any reason the company 'should
discontinue an adequate and suffi-
cient bus service, thq company
agreed and bound itself solemnly
to restore a street car sWaice of
equal efficiency as that now main-
tained, and to do that, without un-
due delay, and before bu4..~-aervice
should be discontinued..
Surely no candid mind can de-
tect anything unfair or unjust in
this ordinance. It may have meant
considerable relief to Thq Key West
Electric Company, without any ex-
pense or inconvenience to the City,
or any of the company's., patrons,

due regard for the rights. of the
City, the convenience of the citizens
and injustice to the company, ohe
of the City's largest taxpayOrs,
passed this ordinance. The ordi-
nauce was passed on Jantiary..6th.
By the passage of this ordinance,
the City Council gave its consent
for The Key West Electric Company
to make the trial bus service,, for
three months, as provided t~"-Sed-'
tion 1 of the ordinance. On
January 9th, his honor, the Mftyor.
returned the ordinance :to the City
Council without his approval. The
City charter requires whenever an
ordinance is disapproved, the Mayor
shall state his reasons in writing. In
this partciular case, the mayor
stated no reason against the bus ser-
vice. He simply stated, in his
opinion The Key West Electric
Company had full power and au-
thority to m4ce the trial service,
thereby impliedly giving his con-
sent to the Company to make the
test. The Mayor's message is as
Key West, Florida,
January 30, 1926.
To the President and
Honorable City Council.
I herewith return Ordinance No.'
219, Council Series without my ap-
proval. I see no reason why a
new ordinance should be enacted by
your Honorable Body to cover the
trial of a bus system by the Key
West Electric Company, when in my
opinion they already have the power
to make such a trial.
Mayor of Key West.
We take it from the action of the
City Council, and the action of the
Mayor, that they are of one mind
as to the value and merits of the
bus service, and the only difference
between them being a technical
legal question pertaining to author-
ity and powers. It was the opinion
of the legal department of the com-
pany that The Key West Electric
Company had the power to make a
trial bus service, and to even sub-
stitute a permanent change if de-
sired. It is not the policy of the
company however to always rely on
its legal lights. Its policy is to
work in harmony with its patrons;
to make no radical changes In ts
service, without the affirmative ap-
proval of the governing body in the
community in which it operates, and
it was for that reason, that the or-
dinance was desired.
Inasmuch as the orinance did
not become a law, owing to the
technical objection of the Mayor,
The Key West Electric Company is
placed back in its original position
as when it applied to. the City Coun-
cil nearly a year ago for relief. It
is only a question of time before
the company must have relief as the
street railway department, as has
been clearly shown to the investi-
gating committee of the City Coun-
cil, is losing money. Tbla condition
cannot exist Indefinitely.
