of Governor. Trammell in setting on
foot the measure that resulted in the
raid on the gilt-edged gambling hell
at Ealra Beach. This place has
flaunted its iniquity in the face of de decent

hopes that the governor will push the
prosecution against it relentlessly. If
the men who run it are found guilty,
they should be put to work on the

time for less flagrant offenses.

mayor and city council, in their cor corporate
porate corporate capacity, when authorized by
a vote of a majority of the registered
voters of the city, shall have power
to issue bonds, pledging the faith and
credit of the city for the payment of
the same, for the purpose .of paying
the outstanding indebtedness of the
city and for public improvements
within said cjty." This may be found
on page 301, "Acts of the legislature
local to Ocala, and ordinances of said
city," compiled by Richard McCona-
thy under a resolution of the city ;
council, and the provisions of this
act are still in force.
Subsequently, in 1897, ''the legisla
ture passed a special act applicable
to the city of Ocala, which contained
the following provision: 'Th said
city council is hereby authorized and
empowered, upon the approval of a
majority of the registered voters of
said -city, then residing therein war
own real estate or personal property
of the value of not less than two hun hundred
dred hundred dollars therein, and have paid
their taxes for the year last due there thereon

city council or its lawfully authorized
agent or agents, for the purpose of

of said city; and also for the purpose
of -supplying light to the Inhabitants
of said city for their private residenc

to do such other and further lighting

as said council shall deem fit and
proper. The cost of all such machin
ery, materials and plant to be fixed
by the vote, allowing, the purchase
and erection of the same, at a cer
tain sum not to be exceeded by said
council." This may be found on page
315 of the compilation above referred
to, under section 14 of chapter 4647,
laws of Florida.
It is under this provision that the
city council proposes to issue the
In October, 1897, immediately sub
sequent to the passage of the forego foregoing
ing foregoing act ,the city council passed an or
dinance, and the mayor called an elec
tion, at which the registered voters,
qualified under the act of 189j7 last
above quoted, balloted upon the ques
tion of the expediency of the purchase
of an electric lighting plant to cost
$1G,000. No question of the issuance
of bonds was presented, only the
question as to whether or not a ma
jority of the registered voters with
the property qualification deemed it
advisable that the city purchase an
electric lighting plant io cost $16,
000. This was on October 19th, 1897
and can be verified by reference to
pages 288 and 2S9, minutes of the city
council for the year 1897. in the office
of the city clerk.
The resolution stated that the "rat "ratification
ification "ratification and approval of the purchase
of an electric lighting plant be sub submitted
mitted submitted to the voters" possessing the
property qualificataion of section 14
of chapter 4647. The ballots read,
"For the purchase, at $16,000," and
"Against the purchase at $16,000."
Such purchase was approved, as will
be seen by reference to page 29S, min minutes
utes minutes of the council of 1897.
On December 14, 1S97, another elec election
tion election was held to determine whether
or not bonds in the sum of $16,000, to
pay for said plant, should be issued.
The ordinance pursuant to which this
election was held is giver in full onj
page 60 of the compilatior of Richard
McConathy and refers, in section 5,
on page 62 of the compilation, to the
preceding election, held on October
19, 1897. The ordinance recites that
the bonds are to be issued "under
and by virtue of the authority con conferred
ferred conferred upon the mayor and city coun coun-city
city coun-city of Ocala in their corporate ca capacity,
pacity, capacity, by the provisions of an act of
the legislature, approved June 4th,
18S9," which act is the "John Dunn
Charter," first above quoted in this
connection, providing that all regis registered
tered registered voters shall cast their ballots
on any question of the issuancs of
bonds for public improvements.
In the light of the foregoing facts,
our contentions are these:
1. A municipality cannot issue any
bonds except when given the power,
express or implied, by the legisla legislature;
ture; legislature; that express power has been
given by the act of 1SS9, and no im implied
plied implied power can therefore exist.
2. The act of 1897, under which
the present bonds are to be issued,
gives no authority to issue bonds of
3. That the procedure adopted by
We regret that Mr. Anderson did
not give the Star a copy of this letter
at the same time he gave it to the
Banner. It would nave saved us the
trouble of explaining the law in our
crude, imperfect way, as we tried to
do yesterday. It also seems to us
that as we committed the original of
fense, the punishment was due to fall
upon us first.
Mr. Anderson's letter contains much
information which .it is good for the
people of Ocala to know. Still, some
of them can't help thinking -they are
having to pay a mighty high price
for it. If it was the intention of Mr.1
Anderson and Mr. Camp to simply
impart this information, they might
have done so without fighting the
case, we had siuu.uuu wortn 01 sew
erage bonds validated in the courts
last week at an expense to the city
of about $20. They are just as valid
as they would have been if some citi
zen had employed high legal counsel
to fight them and forced the city to
employ other high legal counsel to de defend
fend defend them. If the electric bonds had
been treated similarly, and Mr. An Anderson
derson Anderson had set forth his reasons in a
letter to the press, which would have
been very glad 'to print it, the city
would have been in at least $200. We
are informed that Mr. Anderson and
Mr. Camp will carry the case to the
supreme court, where it will cost the
city $200 or $300, or maybe $500,
more. .Meantime, the needed work,
which would be a big help to the en-'
tire town, must wait. If the supreme
court reverses Judge Bullock, we will
have to have another election. AH of
which will be a very high price for
the people of Ocala to pay for a col column
umn column and a half of legal information,
which, we regret to say, nine-tenths
of them will forget before another oc occasion
casion occasion to use it arises.
It is very difficult for the people jaf
Ocala to believe that all this is being
done for their benefit. They may be
rather short on legal lore, but they
are long on arithmetic. They have
put two and two together, with three
and six, and on adding it up find that
the sum total is thirteen, which is
their hoodoo number.
We vainly hunt thru Mr. Ander Anderson's
son's Anderson's letter for anything throwing
light on our impropriety in comment commenting
ing commenting on the case. We regret this, also,
because not being enlightened we may
at some near date repeat the offence.

Very truly, commodore. But in
writing out the program, you wrote
"contra aance, two words, and you
made the n in contra like an u, so the
compositor made it "coutra dance."
Of course, it was necessary to cor correct
rect correct it, and in correcting it the editor
changed it to country dance, which is
by no means a mistake, as you will
ee by consulting Webster, who says:
"Contra-dance (Fr. 'contre, opposite,
and 'danse,' dance). A country dance;
also, the music for such a dance."
If you will look up some of the
English authors of the first two two-thirds
thirds two-thirds of the 19th century, you will
find that they wrote it, "contradance,"
and the greater part of America has
changed it to country dance, and so
calls it and writes it.
