BOND FOR GOOD ROADS
Messrs. T. T. Munroe, John L. Ed
wards and Geo. J. Blitch, represent
ing the Ocala banks, appeared before
the board of county commissioners
Wednesday, in regard to the matter
of carrying county road warrants for
the ensuing year. It appearing that
the county finances are in fair shape,
the banks made no difficulty about
entering into the required agreement.
At this meeting, Mr. T. T. Munroe
of the Munroe & Chambliss National
Bank made a few remarks, in which
he advised the board to take pie nec necessary
essary necessary steps toward bonding the
county for better, roads. He showed
the disadvantage of the present piece
work system, which needs to be re repaired
paired repaired at one point as fast as built
at another, and declared his belief
that to bond would be better for
finances as well as for roads.
Messrs. Edwards of the Ocala Na National
tional National and Blitch of the Commercial,
while not speaking at the meeting,
are substantially in agreement with
Mr. Munroe on this subject.
Mr. Munroe, in private conversa conversation

lieved believed that the county could easily
carry bonds to the amount of, $500, $500,-000,
000, $500,-000, and that they would be an ex excellent
cellent excellent investment.
For the last two or three years,
the Star has steadily urged that the
county bond for roads, and if it had
not been for the disturbance caused
by the war, it is more than likely that
long steps ere this would have been
taken in that direction. While the
War is not over, and may not be for
months, the disturbance, so far as
this country is concerned, has settled.
We are down to brass tacks arid
should resume building up.
A bond issue for $500,000 would be
the best thing Marion county could
do to restore prosperity. It would
stimulate business and put idle men
to work as nothing else could. It
would be an increasing help to the
people with every yard of road im improvement.
provement. improvement. Neither would it be an expensive
proposition. We see by the report
of the board, that road work for this
year, is estimated at $35,000, nearly
all of which, it is safe to say, will be
devoted to repairs. It would take a
much greater amount to put the
roads alreads built in good repair.
If the county bonds, it can obtain
money at 6 per cent, or less. So it is
easy to see that less than the amount
now devoted o "patching" would pay
the interest on the bonds, and that
meantime a system of substantial
roads, leading to every corner of the
county, could be laid.
If the present board of commission
ers desires to do something to im immortalize

The Star believes that there is
enough statesmanship and good will
-, Mnwm n 0TV,;0
on both sides of the ocean to arnica-
bly settle the dispute between Amer
ica and Great Britai regarding
searching snips that are suspected of
carrying contraband of war.
The Star does not think Great Brit
ain and the allies will give up the
right of search. It thinks that they
will do all they can to make it as
easy as possible, but it does not be
lieve they will give it up for any
thing less than the open threat of
war, and maybe not then.
Is it worth while for America to
go to war over this question? The
Star thinks not. All the trouble and
expense that searching our compar comparatively
atively comparatively few ships would make us in a
year would not be the equivalent of
the harm that would be done to our
country and the entire world in a day
sometimes an hour of war.
As it happens, the two interests
most affected by search are the great
copper mines and the oil fields. Cop Copper
per Copper and gasoline are both invaluable
to Germany and Austria as muni munitions
tions munitions of war, and of both there is
great danger of their running short.
They cannot produce enough of either
for home consumption in time of
peace, and the war drain on their
supplies must bring them in danger
of extinction. ?
It will be remembered that when
the' war began, almost the first ships
to come under the American flag
were the Standard Oil tank steamers,
many of which had been of German
registry. It was all right for these
ships, which were owned by Amer American
ican American capital, to join the merchant
marine of their own country; but if
their owners are trying to use our
flag for purely selfish reasons, we had
better have insisted that they join
the list of British prizes.
Some of these Standard Oil ships
have been seized by the British, but
always released. Their pertinacity
iir venturing into dangerous waters is
remarkable, and that the Standard
Oil trust is perfectly willing for its
merchandise to float to a market over

events of the past few years in Mex Mexico.

Less extensive but fully3 as selfish
is the copper trust. It has shipped

ports many thousand tons ; more of

by the countries to whom those ports
belonged. As there is certainty of
death to some of their men in everylvere one. The wrecking crew is at

wonder that the allies are disposed to
prevent its shipment.
. There are other interests, notably
naval stores, that must suffer by pro pro-hibitiorf

turpentine industry so hampered, but
it doesn't believe it would be helped
by a foreign war.
As a matter of exact legal justice;
we have a right-to insist that every

neutral port shall go to its. destina destination

affair if a cargo of copper or tur turpentine

we might legally insist, and probably
would if we had the power to en enforce
force enforce it, that our merchant ships go
straight to Hamburg, Bremen and
Trieste and unload at those ports
whatever the Germans, and Austrians
chose to buy. But if we were engag engaged

tion nation to treat us so, if we had the
power to prevent it. The United
States blockaded southern ports dur during

world acknowledged the blockade. It
recognized it because no nation
thought it w6rth while to fight the
United States to break the blockade;
and it isnt' worth the while of the
United States to fight Great Britain,
France and Russia in order that we
may ship a comparatively small
amount of our products to Germany
There is no taking sides in this
question. If the German navy con
trolled the sea, it would blockade
Britain, and judging by the expres-
sions of the German press the United
States would have to fight the Ger-
mans in order to ship to Britain not!

The United States has a perfect

We do not know whether they would

the most delicately and accurately

scales, which are entirely enclosed in

These scales will be used in' all pre
