OTHER POINTS OVERLOOKED
Our honored old friend, Col. R. F.
Rogers, in his letter to the ; Star of
last Monday, sa ys that he thinks this
is a very unpropitious time for the
friends of the old electric plant to dis discuss
cuss discuss its merits or contend that 8
cents per k. w, h. is right and just to
charge the consumer.
We seldom differ with Colonel Bob,
but we will differ with him this time
far enough to say that we think any anytime
time anytime is propitious to discuss a public
matter. We are glad Mr. Rogers has
brought the matter up. He is not the
only person who kicks on the 8 cent
rate, and many people in town agree
with him in saying that the electric
plant should stand on its own merits,
and the city should charge only
enough for current to pay expenses
oftfl n nl-ofin smrl nnt. mt nn pnnufll to
ernment. And, sad to say, many peo people
ple people have such short memories that
they are disposed to blame the pres present
ent present city council lor the present high
rate of current and some of the other
evils Col. Rogers alludes to.
Now "the nresent council has
fixed 'rates of current, nor incurred
extra expense, nor failed to do its
duty in collecting taxes. It took hold
three months ago, and has had no
chance to depart from the policy of
its predecessor. The council of 1914 f
was optimistic. It expected an era
of prosperity, and set out to anti anticipate
cipate anticipate it. It bought a large area of
real estate that the city hasn't been
able to use, and, probably won't use
for some time to come. It raised
salaries and made contracts for pay paying.

1914 council for doing these things.
It "couldn't foresee war and hard
tuuca aitv iuuic i wan any wvvijaio
although it must be said that a ma majority
jority majority of its members seemed to
think that the best remedy for hard
times was to go ; overwhelmingly in
debt. The peoplei refused to let them
do so, and put in the present council,
which is trying to carry out the
1. AT.- 1
their votes. - -,,'r'
As for the cost of electric current,
the 1913 council, at its last meeting
put the rate down to the lowest possi possible
ble possible figure. This council gave the peo people
ple people of Ocala the -lowest rate in the
state. It pleased the people very
well -was the most popular measure
ever passed. But the 1914 council
said it couldn t do business on such a
rate, and raised it, altho the only
electrician in the body, who had been
superintendent of the plant, voted
against the4 raise, saying- the plant
wn TnnTfintT tttptisps mnre: at.
the low rate. It is evident from the
help the plant erives to other obiecfs
and funds that lie was right. tThe ma
jority of the present council is in
sympathy with the 1913 ; council on
the electric current rraestion. It hp
Jtfeves in a lower rate, and is working
to that end. At the same time, it has
to use the money available to meet
city obligations, or have them dishon
ored, which we don't think Col. Rog Rogers
ers Rogers wants it to do.
The Star ddesn't approve of one
man having to pay what another man
doesn't pay; nevertheless, it is being
done all the time. The city council
hasn't any idea of passing up delin delinquents,
quents, delinquents, but if Col. Rogers didn't have
the money to pay his taxes; he
couldn't pay them, and some of his
neighbors are in that troublesome con condition.
dition. condition. The only thing to do in such
cases is to levy on their property, and
just now the city wouldn't be much
better off if it did this, for as Col.
Rogers knows, property isn't selling
very lively. So far as the Star is con concerned
cerned concerned and the Star is one of the
biggest users of current in the city -it
would rather pay more for current
than see the homes of some .of our
citizens sold for taxes.
Now, as for Colonel Rogers rem
edy. He seems to think that letting
the Florida Power Co. supply current
at 2 cents would do away with all the
trouble as he says, consumers are
being charged a dollar for 25 cents
worth of current, by which we sup suppose
pose suppose he thinks that if we take' cur-
not I rent from the said company, we will
obtain it for 2 cents.
,We don't see how the colonel figuresJ
this "out. The power company offers j
us current at the switchboard for 2
cents. Our city plant; is making it at
2 cents.' The colonel ha"s lost sight
of the work of distribution. That is
where most of the cost comes in.
Taking current from the power com company
pany company would not do away with the
overhead charges, nor cost of distri distri-bption,
bption, distri-bption, nor would it prevent the city
government from using electric cur current
rent current revenue to pay other expenses.
We call Col. Rogers' attention to
the city of Dunnellon,which uses cur
rent furnished by the Florida Power
Co. Its rate is about 50 per cent
higher than -the Ocala "rate, tho it is
24 miles nearer the source of supply.
We also call his attention to the fact
that Ocala has one of the lowest
electric rates in the state. A few
obtain current for the same money,
but most of them pay more.
Colonel Rogers says: "Suppose the
city shall say. to the Florida Power
Company, 'wef will let you come into
the city, if you will take over our old
light plant at its actual cash value
and bind yourselves in a contract to
furnish current directly to our citi
zens at their homes or places of bus
iness at 4 cents per k. w. h. for the
next 25 years.' This proposal to them
would cover the second point you said
I overlooked and if they do not accept
it I will put my hand over my mouth
and give you the belt." s
The Star doesn't think the Florida
Power Co. or any other organization
would accept such a proposition.
If it did' it would be to our temporary
advantage to make it, but we Would
probably lose in the long run.
The Star would object most stren
uously to the city making any such
contract. To begin with, when we
give up our plant, we are at the
mercy of private parties, and must
, take what they give us, or do with
out. If the Florida Power Co. went
broke, or wa3 absorbed by a bigger
corporation, the bigger corporation,
aided by a complaisant council, could
find means to break, set aside or dis- j
regard the contract. Such things have '.
been done before and will be done i
The city would be foolish to bind i
itself to pay 4 cents for twenty-five
years. When the writer came to I
Ocala over twenty years ago, Ocala
people were paying more than twice
what they are paying now for a very
inferior service. They had not a
motor in town, and nothing but
lights, that went out at midnight in
the houses and followed the moon on
the streets. With the constant march
of improvement, the people, if they
keep their own utilities, are more like
ly to be paying 2 cents than 4 twenty-five
years from now.
It is the same way with water. Col Colonel
onel Colonel Rogers says some people are
paying $1 for 15 cents worth of water.
A few years ago, under private own ownership,
ership, ownership, they would have paid more. If
a man pays a dollar to the city for
water, and doesn't use it, its his own j
fault. The city, like every "other bus business
iness business firm must make a minimum rate!
It can't keep up with 10 and 15 cent
It must be apparent to every one
that the reason why Ocala is being
offered a lower rate for current than
other places as accessible to the Flor Florida
ida Florida Power Co., is because it has a
plant of its own, and a valuable busi business
ness business of its own a business that it
has only begun fairly to develop. This
business, like everything else in the
country, is just now suffering from a
temporary depression, but that is no
reason for giving it up.
It will be very unwise for the peo people

and their future -prospects for the

If they stop "now, or go backward, it

SUGGESTIONS TO OAT GROWERS
Cultivation: The heavy rains of
the past winter have packed the
ground and fall sown oats are small.
As soon as the soil is dry. enough
run over the oats with a weeder, or
section harrow.j to loosen the sur
face soil. About ten, days later give
the oats a second cultivation with
the section harrow, or with the weed weeder.

When harvesting for grain, begin to
cut as soon as 75 per cent of the field
has turned yellow; when harvesting
for hay, cut while the "grain is in the
milk stage. Oat hay is equal in
feeding value to the best timothy hay.
In moist, damp climates it is best

the bundles together. Go over the

Marketing: Where oats are to be

either 4 or 5 bushels to the sack. The

each sack. The sacks should be sew.
ed, not tied. V
, ; Feeding: The high value of oats
for feeding horses and mules is gener
ally understood. They are especially
valuable to feed colts and other young
growing stock. A grain ration of
half oats and half corn makes an ex
cellent feed for work stock.
Seed: Each farmer should at least
save his own seed oats, as he can
avoid the danger of infesting his fields
with obnoxious weeds and. grasses
Native grown seed are more reliable
than seed brough in from 'distant
