MAYOR REARDON ADDRESSES
A GATHERING OF THE CITI CITIZENS
ZENS CITIZENS AT THE COUNCIL
CHAMBER
Upon Live Issues He Gives His Idea
of How the Interests of our Town
May Be Advanced The Ad Address
dress Address was Full of Good
Advice.
The Mayor's Address was Followed by
Speeches From Several Other
Gentlemen.
The business men and city coun council
cil council met last night in the council
chamber to discuss the best meth methods
ods methods of advancing the welfare of the
citv. There not beine: a quorum
of aldermen present, an impromp-
tu citizens meeting was held, Mr.
McConnell being chosen chairman.
Mayor Reardon was the first to
address the house. His speech
was very forcible, concise and to
the point. He talked at large upon
the necessity of the city's aiding
new enterprises in the way of man manufacturing
ufacturing manufacturing institutions and better
transportation facilities, and in
strong ttrms advised the city to
bond itself for as much as $100,
ooo and advertise to the world that
Ocala would give a donation of so
much money, building site and
franchises to any company or indi individual
vidual individual who would come here and
establish a factory. Me dwelt upon
the natural resources of our coun county
ty county and Ocala s unsurpassed geo geographical
graphical geographical position for an inland
city. He spoke of the unlimited
woods we posses, highly adapted
to the manufacture of furniture,
and advised a liberal donation to a
furniture factory, instead of our
people paying exorbitant prices for
furniture and implements made of
Florida, and doubtless some from
Marion county, forests, shipped to
Michigan and other northern
states, worked up and shipped
back, our unjust railroad tariffs
forcing our people to pay twice
the price that these articles can be
made for right here in our city,
. 1 1 ? r 1 1 4
besides the additional advantage
of giving employment to our idle
men.
Mayor Reardon also waxed elo eloquent
quent eloquent on the subject of phosphate
manufacturing,and the injustice to
our people caused by no effort be be-in""
in"" be-in"" made to work up the rock into
fertilizers in this country, right at
the mines, rather than send it to
Europe and then back to this
country before the farmer reaped
the benefit. He called attention
to the great reduction in the price
of fertilizers should we manufac manufacture
ture manufacture it here, the center of the
greatest deposits in the world. Put
no ; this rock is manufactured at a
cost that puts it beyond the reach
of our vegetable and fruit growers.
Mr. Reardon dwelt at length
upon the advantage to be reaped
from the establishment of a can canning
ning canning factory in fact, after the
railroad question, this seemed to
be his favorite theme. He cited
this year's vegetable crop as a
proof of the necessity of this fac factory,
tory, factory, as only a small portion of the
immense crop for this year was
marketed profitably.
He advised the establishment of
a spring mattress factory, and get
the woodwork and filling from a

certain wood, well adapted to it,
and found in great abundance in
our hammocks, Ocala having an
advantage over Tampa and Jack Jack-sonvile
sonvile Jack-sonvile on account of the saline at atmosphere
mosphere atmosphere of the latter places rust

ing the springs.
The mayor urged strongly the
establishing of a cotton mill
here, the city to furnish so much
money to a factory of such and
such a capacity and number of
spindles. He spoke of how this
would revive the lost art cf cotton
growing, which used to be such a
source of ready cash for the farm farmers,
ers, farmers, who could be seen on market
days with their carts filled up with
the fleecy long staple.
Among the most important rec recommendations
ommendations recommendations was one for the cs
tablishment of a tobacco factory
for the working up of our home home-raised
raised home-raised leaf, thousands of pounds of
it now being on hand which
must be shipped north, as the
Cubans will not use Monda leaf in
their factories, although in most
respects equal to, theirs. Mr.
Reardon advanced the idea that
should the Cubans in their native
isle triumph in their struggle for
liberty most of them would doubt doubtless
less doubtless move their factories back to
Cuba, thus making the necessity of
a home industry of this kind more
imperative.
The mayor said he had rather
see our city back in the primitive
condition of ten years ago than to
see her any longer without public
enterprises in the line he spoke on.
He showed how Ocala had lost
her wholesale trade just on ac
count of the high freight rates ;
and how Palatka was selling goods
cheaper than our merchants. He
said that Plant had Tampa under
his wing, while Jacksonville was
looked after by the F. C. & P. rail railroad,
road, railroad, with no one, not even her
own citizens, to take care ot poor
little orphaned Ocala. He put it
to the patriotism of her citizens to
know it such a state of affairs
should continue to exist.
Mayor Reardon advised the city
to build an electric road to the
gulf, and connect with steamers to
all principal points on that coast,
thus getting our freight a good
deal cheaper than by the present
system. He also urged the neces-
sity of an electric line to Silver
Springs, with a line of small steam steamers
ers steamers on the Ocklawaha, connecting
Ocala with Palatka, Jacksonville,
and the Clyde steamers on the St.
Johns. Mr. Reardon did not in insist
sist insist on an electric system as
against steam, only that with the
same power we could operate these
roads and light the city too the
city to own both roads, as well as
the electric light plant.
He also advised the city to own
its own water works, deriving the
income from these institutions
The railroads treat us unfairly;
they will not make Ocala a division
station, as she deserves, but only a
way station, taking all of their
business elsewhere. So why
should we favor them ?
H. L. Anderson then delivered a
few very forcib'e remarks, com
mending the mayor's views, and
when asked his opinion on the
cost of building and equipping the
electric road to Silver Spring, said
he thought it could be done for
$50,000.
Alderman Groves then spoke in
a style peculiarly his own, advo advocating
cating advocating active measures to enable
our city to regain her lost prosper

ity, and giving some able sugges suggestions
tions suggestions as to how it couM be done.
Mr. Condon then followed with

some remarks foreign to the ques-
tion before the meeting:.
The chair then appointed a citi
zens' committee, consisting1 of J.
A. Rowell, H.M. Groves and Geo.
McKay, to investigate the practi practicability

LET US HAVE BONDS.
We have felt for some time that
the people of Ocala need more con
cert of action and pushing enter enterprise
prise enterprise to develop our resources and
build up our town. Our natural
advantages surpass those of any
interior town in the state. We
are within fifty miles of the Gulf
and five miles of the world renown renowned
ed renowned Silver Springs. We are abun abundantly
dantly abundantly able, as a city, to build and
equip a railroad to Silver Springs
and put on a line of steamboats to
Jacksonville, which will make
Ocala a basing point and reduce
our freight rates fully one-half.
This will enable our merchants to
compete with Jacksonville, Palatka
and other neighboring cities.
As long as our business men
have to pay such enormous freights
Ocala never can hope to be any anything
thing anything but a little way station. It
?s said to be an actual fact that
!' ilatka has such an advantage in
: hrs on account of her water
insportation that her wholesale
uses can s:ll goods at a profit in
cala. The road to Silver Springs
would correct this. How can wc
get it? Let the city of Ocala
bond itself f r $50,000 and build it.
The road will pay for itself in five
years and increase our business
fifty per cent.
1 ne citizens 01 ucaia are pay-
ing taxes on over a million dollars
worth f property and these bonds
would sell like hot cakes at a fourth
of July picnic. No trouble about
getting the money. Then too, it
will be spent in Ocala for labor
and material. Our laboring class-

sequence. consequence. We cannot too strong
ly commend our wide-awake mayor
and enterprising city council for
the noble stand they have taken
in this matter. They see the true
condition of Ocala and the imper imperative
ative imperative necessity of giving our peo people
ple people profitable employment. It is
true we have very little money
now, but, heaven be thanked, we
have a splendid credit and let us
use it judiciously and pull our ourselves
selves ourselves out of the ditch.
The city of Jacksonville issued
a million dollars worth of bonds a
short time ago and now it is more
prosperous than before the freeze,
The laboring classes are all em-
ployed at fair wages and the city
is being built up and beautified.
Let Ocala have bonds. It is the
only way out of the difHcul ty as
we see it.
Mayor Reardon says he has
r. v.!r built a railroad, neither has
any other man in Ocala, excepting
Herbert Anderson, but he would
urg- upon thrt people to build one
to iv :r iniiirs. It electricitv is
n' practicable, then use steam.

Shut Up the Saloons.
Probably no young man, start starting
ing starting out in life, ever took the first
glass of liquor with the expecta expectation
tion expectation or intention of becoming a
drunkard. But the tangible and
ostensible fact that there is today
ti vast army of drunkards in the
United States shows conclusively
that all men are not their own
masters. The approachers of this
damnable vice or crime are so in insidious,
sidious, insidious, the steps so gradual that
thousands have trodden the road
without being conscious of their
danger, and only realized their sit situation
uation situation when the drink habit had
become so firmly fixed that it had
mastered thjm.
Let anyone who is in the habit
of drinking even moderately, ab abstain
stain abstain from his cup a while and he
will, to his astonishment, find how
his appetite has been captured.

The victim is allured by the Cir Cir-cean
cean Cir-cean cry "that there is peace where
there is no peace." A great many
drink to show their manhood and
great will force, when they only
exhibit how devoid of manhood
thev are. Noteriety It reminds
me of the cuplet inscribed on the
picture of the temple of fame in
the old speller when I was a boy,
"The aspiring youth who fired the
Kphcsien dome outlives in fame
the pious fool whe saved it." The
saloons are responsible for this

state ot things. 1 hey are the
drunkard makers. "It must needs
be that offences come, but woe un unto
to unto him by whom the offence
comes." Is not he who affords
the opportunity for man to fall in into
to into temptation, who smooths the
path of ruin, morally guilty of the
downfall of the erring one ?
Tried by the standard the saloon
must be adjudged guilty. Not one
man in a hundred of all those who
are the victims of rum today would
ever have acquired the habit had
there been no such an institution
sls the saloon no easy way of be becoming
coming becoming accustomed to drink.
It is one of the most deadly
properties of that slow poison, al alcohol,
cohol, alcohol, that it gradually sets up a
depraved appetite in the diseased
and altered tissues of the body; it
creates a thirst that nothing can
allav but more alcohol. A man
entirely under the influence of the
drink fiend, would, face death
when the desire is upon him, so
much so that if a glass of whisky
was placed within reach and a can cannon
non cannon loaded and ready to blow him
up, he would take it without a mo moment's
ment's moment's hesitation. This is one of
the ghostly incidents of a drunk drunkard's
ard's drunkard's career that the apologists for
and defenders of the saloon suffer
to rest in discreet silence. It is a
fact that should be firmly impress impressed
ed impressed upon the mind of every boy,
taught in every school room and
thundered from every pulpit that
any indulgence, even moderate, in
rum in any form, is liable to set up
this drink thirst and when it is es established
tablished established the victim is no longer
his own master. The horrible
craving; of this damnable thirst can

be assuaged only by more rum, and
this in turn increases the deseased
condition of the body, and renders

the craving still more irresistable.

The only rtfuge is the gospel of

the Lord Jesus Christ. Life is
V
one long scene of temptation and

yielding thereto.

it is evident it tnere were no

saloons, the temptation to become

drinking men then would be re-

moved entirely from tens of thous

ands and minimized tor tens

of thousands more. The strongest
and best work that can be done
for temperance is that which has

for its object the closing forever

of the doors of the saloon in this

county. With the saloops abol

ished there would then remain but

little yet to do in order to com

pletely and forever pulverize the

rum power.
