A FERTILIZER FACTORY
GOOD PROSPECTS OF OCALA
In the Near Future Captain Wells's
Big Meeting Last
MANY PLANS PROPOSED.
The citizens' meeting in the
Ocala house dining room last
night was well attended by our
best citizens, over 100 being pres-
ent, and much interest was mani-!
fested in the schemes discussed.
Mayor Reardon took the chair
and called the meeting to order,
and Capt. Wells rose to address
capt. wells's speech.
Capt. Wells said Ocala, with her
population, was entitled to more
business industries that we did
not have enough to employ our
populace, Said he: "We have ev every
ery every advantage, both natural and
artificial, to make a flourishing
city. We only need one other
thing, and that is manufacturing
industries; and that is what we are
here for tonight to discus plans
to promote these industries."
He then showed a plan of a fer fertilizer
tilizer fertilizer plant he had put in in South
Carolina at a cost of 70,000, and
advised Ocala to have one of $100, $100,-000,
000, $100,-000, as more profitable than a
Some present thought that too
large, but the captain said we
could get the money, and pledged
himself to raise $30,000 of it.
Capt. Wells read a prospectus of
a factory he drew up before the
freeze, and said he had at the time
of the freeze $ 100,000 subscribed,
principally among the merchants
and farmers, and a large amount
promised from the north. j

into small shares, so that farmers,
mechanics, operatives and every everybody
body everybody could own a few, and put in
their time or products.
He thought Ocala the most suit suitable
able suitable point for the location of the
factory, on account of her railroads
and geographical position.
He said if this factory was es established
tablished established so that the farmer could
get a good grade of fertilizer cheap,
then they would go to raising cot cotton
ton cotton and other crops extensively,
and this would at once call for a
cotton factory, which we would
then be in a position to build.
The captain said we could make
a high grade fertilizer at $17 to $20
per ton, whereas now we pay $35
to $40 for it.
He said he had been engaged
for 3Q years in the mining and
manufacture of fertilizers, and
knew what he was talking about.
c. s. Clarke's speech.
C. S. Clarke, one of the largest
phosphate shippers in Florida,
then gave a short and forcible ad
dress, indorsing all the captain had
said and agreeing with him that
we wanted the factory.
He cited the marvelous growth
of Ocala since he came here five
Mr. Clarke said Florida pro produced
duced produced annually 500,000 tons of
high grade phosphate, almost all
of which was shipped to Europe.
England used one million tons of
fertilizers annually, against one
and a half million in the United
He thought the reason there had
been no factories started hereto heretofore
fore heretofore in Florida was that when first
discovered rock brought a great
price, and the supply did not equal
the demand. He said the time was
now ripe for the establishment of
these factories. The rock was
plentiful and cheap.
Mr. Clarke said the salvation of
our country depended upon the
utilization of our resources, of
which we had an unlimited supply
and variety. "When this is done,"
said he, "we shall see a steady
boom in Florida."
Mr. Clarke said we were now
getting $3 for rock when we ought
to get $7 per ton, and if we got to
using our surplus at home, so that
we did not have to sell, we would
force foreign countries to pay us
that price, as Florida has a mono monopoly

who, perhaps, may be well-wishers
of the temperance cause, will
-charge us with talking at random,
and not knowing what we are say saying;

First, prohibition has God's

it, and woe to all at the last day
who will be found to have been
stubbornly fighting against God.
Then the liquor traffice is recog recognized

which are continuously being com committed

"but on the contrary are prohibited
by the statute books, but neverthe nevertheless,
less, nevertheless, in licensing the liquor traffic,
these crimes are licensed, and are

We insist upon the prohibition
of the liquor traffic because it
places the law on our side.

us "Prohibition won't prohibit"
and our opponents remind us of

they wanted to get back under the
sheltering arms of the law.
And so we want the law on our
side to protect us.
Of course it would only prohibit
as it was enforced, and some time
might be required to make the law
very effective, though we believe
we have a heajthier prohibition
sentiment than we had in 1887.
