that the Austrians -were looking to

Report of the Light and Water
Ocala, Fla., Augusf IS, 1014.
To the Honorable City Council of
Ocala, Gentlemen: We, your light
and water committee, beg to attach
hereto a report showing the receipts
and expenditures of the electric light
department for seven months from
January to July, 1914, inclusive.
This report does not start with an
inventory, neither oes it end with
one. However, we are satisfied that
there would be little actual differ difference
ence difference 'between the inventory of Jan January
uary January 1st. and August 1st. We, there
fore, consider this report approxi
mately correct for all purposes.
This report shows total expenses
durins the seven months of $10,
201.54, to which should be added
$4 37 interest on bonds, and. from
this should he deducted $500, -which
was transferred, to another fund, and
$2,202 spent for extensions and im improvements
provements improvements which are really
an investment, therefore amounts
to $13,996.54. The total amount
charged for electricity to consumers
during these seven months was $17,-
368.50. .This leaves an apparent
profit, or book profit, of $3,381.96
against which the city clerk informs
us there w ere unpaid -bills on the 1st
of the month amounting approxi
mately to $1,500. Your committee
considers this an exceptionally fine
shnwinz considering the low rates
enjoyed by the city of Ocala and we
think a great deal of praise is due to
your superintendent, Mr. Caldwell..
!As stated above, total disburse disbursements
ments disbursements for the seven months was $16, $16,-698.54.
698.54. $16,-698.54. The total charges for cur current
rent current sold was $17,368.50, and accord according
ing according to this the electric light depart
ment apparently financed itself, leav leaving
ing leaving a .balance of $1,170.28. -X closer
investigation, however, will show show-that
that show-that although the plant made an ap apparent
parent apparent profit and apparently financed
itself, when we 'take-into considera
tion the collections, it has failed to
do this. The total collections for six
months amounted to $12,831.69.
Adding to this $2,000 estimated col
lections foT July tbills, makes a total
of $14,831.69, whereas, the disburse
ments were $16,198.54, which leayes
an apparent deficit between disburse
ments and collections of $1,366.85.
We call your attention to these
facts in order to show that although
the plant is apparently making a
profit our margin of profit on the
present rate is so small that unless
all collections are made Tight up to
date we are. unable to finance our
selves. We beg to call your atten attention
tion attention to the fact that it is absolutely
necessary to buy another engine and
generator immediately, to be install
ed in the plant. We are daily receiv receiving
ing receiving applications for street lights
from the dark parts of the city and
applications for new cut-ins from
neW customers, all. of which require
considerable investment. Our super superintendent
intendent superintendent advises ns that on account
i of the increased demand some of the
transformers are overloaded and this
will necessitate placing additional
transformers and the rebuilding of
some of our lines. All of the above
will call for considerable capital,
which, in our judgment, cannot be
sun-nlied by oneratinz1 the plant on
present rates. We recommend, there
fore, that all rates, rules and regula regulations
tions regulations with reference to the electric
! light department be repealed and
:that the following: rates, rules and?

to bold a big meeting in Atlanta 4n

be known as the Southeastern Food

conference will be to secure the
growing of a larger amount of all
foodstuffs, both for men and animals,
n the cotton producing states of the
southeast. At the same lime .the
cotton states lying west of the Miss
issippi will be requested to hold a
similar confernece in some suitably

The plans, as outlined by the state
chamber, call for between 500 and
600 delegates. The commissioner of
agriculture in each state will be re
quested to appoint a delegate from
each county in his state, with alter alternate
nate alternate delegates in case of inability to
attend on part of the first one nam

reason of their influence among the
farmers of their -home counties.
The importance of raising suffic

will not have to import any next
year -will be earnestly 'Impressed upon
the meeting. Since the coming of
the European war, the entire South
is getting an object lesson on the
foolishness of depending too much
on any one crop, no matter how
strong that crop may be. It is neces necessary
sary necessary that every county shall grow at
least enough to feed itself next year.
It is impossible to say bow long this
war may last. Earl Kitchener, the
British minister of war, who is prob
ably the most reliable source of in
formation, states that it will extend
over a period of eighteen months. It
will mean two crops for us. It Is Im
perative that the South shall be abso absolutely
lutely absolutely Independent of outside sources
of supply for -the next year. Then,
no matter what price cotton may
bring, we shall be immune from the
effects of high prices for foodstuffs
In other parts of the world. The
South can do it. Before the civil war
it was practically an unknown thing
for a Southerner to buy any meats,
grains or other staple foods from
anywhere outside the South.
The date of the conference will
probably be October 5, and 6. It is
possible that it will be found ad visa

It is proved also by the record of the

Florida's health toard occupies a
position unique in all the states, par particularly
ticularly particularly in its Telati'ons to the Unit United
ed United States Public 'Health Service,
When, in 1901, Florida's quarantine
stations were ceded to the control of
the federal government, it was. with
the provision that the -state health
officer should become supervisor of
the, stations and the advisor of the
puduc neartn service in tneir 'man
agement. Being in close touch -with
the conditions In this state, he be
came, and remains, in effect the ex
ecutive officer of this service in Flori-
da, because in the dozen years or
more his counsel and advice have in invariably
variably invariably become the governing rule.
In this way and by reason 'of this
close intimacy between the state and
the United States health authorities,
working in harmony, Florida of, all
the states is the 'best equipped by ex experience
perience experience and weight of authority, to
combat the emergencies of threaten threatened
ed threatened epidemic and to ward off such
danger from foreign sources.
The position of Florida's board
during the present summer, when
plague has menaced the state, has
been in accord with the 'highest med medical
ical medical authority and experience in the
world. The urgent advice that sea seaports
ports seaports and inland cities of the state
should take every precaution against
the invasion of the -plague, has been
backed by this authority. It has de declared

'but serious and has urged precau precautions

recommended these measures not as
an absolute prevention of plague, but
as decidedly towards diminishing of
the chances of its reaching 'Florida.
In this position the "board has had
the almost, unanimous support of
the Florida press, but this support of
these policies has been marred by an
occasional belittling of these efforts,
which has had the moral effect of di direct
rect direct opposition.
If Florida's newspapers do not
give the heartiest support of the
work and methods of the board, in
its work for the state, its efficiency
must be lessened, and the progress

A fitting climax to the opening of the Pan Panama
ama Panama Canal will come with the great Exposition
at San Francisco. .The plans are complete.
The beautiful de luxe Booklet of the Exposition
is now ready.
A big question confronted the Exposition authorities:
"How shall we put this booklet into the hands of in intelligent
telligent intelligent people eveywherc?,
The problem was as big as the world's map. Various
methods were considered and discarded.'
Final judgment pointed to this most nnnrnnriaf and
logical way: The Remington Typewriter Company was
selected as the official distributor. Why?
Because the Remington Typewriter Company is
known wherever men communicate with each other in
Because the 658 Remington offices which dot the
earth, are supply stations for the most remote points in
the two hemispheres.
To indicate further its belief in the Remington Type Typewriter,
writer, Typewriter, the Exposition management will type attits official
letters on Remington machines. For the use of visitors,
hundreds of Remingtons will be installed in the Exposition
You will do well to get a copy of this beautifuT booklet
which, in accordance with our arrangement with the Ex Exposition,
position, Exposition, we are now distributing free.
