The proposed removal of the city's
water plant from its present site to
a site on Taylor's pond was unani unanimously

of citizens at the court house last
night, after the failure of those pro proposing

recent resolution in council to state
why the water works should be locat located

The meeting was one of the larg largest

Ocala, was well attended by the con conservative,
servative, conservative, and 'there was not a vote
against a resolution offered by Mr.
Z. C. Chambliss. The resolution, as
"Resolved, That it is improper to
remove the water plant from its pres present
ent present location to the Taylor pond lot."
Mr. Harris, editor of the Banner,
stated during a rather heated speech
favoring removal, that the additional
equipment and building that have
been provided for at the water plant
were not authorized by council. Pres President
ident President Meffert, of the council, said
that the records at the city hall
would show authorization, and he
called upon Councilman Roess to
verify this. Mr. Roess did so, saying
that he had presented a resolution
providing for the new equipment and
The chief reason given by those
favoring the removal of the plant
was stated by Mr. Harris. He said
that the plant on its present site was
objectionable to the property owners
and residents of the immediate
neighborhood. He read a copy of the
petition recently presented to the
council by citizens of the water
works neighborhood. Mr. Harris did
not think that the plant should be in
the residential section of the city. It
should be placed in Taylor's pond, he
argued, because the earliest settlers
of Ocala got their water from a
spring in the pond, and this spring,
he said, was known to-have pure wa water.
ter. water. The editor denied "in toto," as
he said, that the pond was a cesspool,
receiving the swill and garbage of the
city. He ignored the fact that the
city is at present, and has been for
years, dumping garbage in the pond,
filling it in.
Mr. W. K. Zewadski, in a vigorous
but good humored speech, said that
the very reputation of Taylor's pond
was enough to condemn the proposi proposition,

plant there, he contended, would ut utterly
terly utterly destroy the good reputation of
Ocala. It would make no difference
as Mr. Zewadski, Mr. G. S. Scott, Mr.
B. H. Seymour, and others pointed
out, whether a well could be drilled
deep enough to get rid of the surface
filth in the pond. The fact that the
wells would be driven through filth,
if only part of the depth, would do
the city untold harm.
Mr. Zewadski said, by way of diver diversion,

why it was that the city could not get

be given the city to sell some of its
property. He thought that the coun councilmen

should give the public their reasons

Mr. Roess responded, and" said the

since the real reason was asked for

plant is defective, and gave forth for foreign

nature. The well is not used, the
Mr. Chambliss pointed out that the
defect of this well might be easily
remedied by repairing the casing. Mr.
Roess gave no definite reason why
the water works should be located in
Taylor's pond. He also stated that
the council had not taken any action
that it could not rescind if the people
It was said a number of times that
there were numerous good sites to be
selected if the plant had to be moved.
There was every reason, it was said,
against placing the plant in the pond.
Mr. Seymour pointed out that, for
one, he was willing to listen to the
engineers and chemists.
An editorial wa.s read by Mr. Har Har-rs,
rs, Har-rs, and a written reply by President
Metfert was read by Senator Carney,
who presided over the gathering.
The proponents stated that the
placing of wells on Taylor's pond
could be no more objectionable than
making ice from water obtained
from wells on property adjoining the
pond. In reply to this it was said
most emphatically that the water
frozen stood the te.st of government
chemists, and furthermore the water
used for the ice was not water direct
from the wells but converted steam.
Mr. Meffert stated that the council
had been favorable to the combined
water and electric plant on the site
of the present water works, for which
plans have been drawn, and then,
suddenly, there was a change. He
said that no reason had been given
for the sudden change. No reason
had been made public, he said, why
or how this sudden change came
Mr. Meffert predicted that the city
would have to be placed in the hands
of receivers by next March, unless
something be done to take care of
finances. He said there was no fund
for completing the addition begun re
cently at the water works. Something
should be done at once, he said.
It was stressed throughout the
meeting that with its present supply
of water Ocala is one of the health healthiest
iest healthiest cities in the state. Many false
reports were in circulation, it was
said. Some thought it might be
worth while to select a new site for
the proposed water works in order
that all false reports might be killed.
The overwhelming sentiment of the
meeting was that the water works
should be no means be placed on Tay Taylor's
lor's Taylor's pond, and that, if the plant be
moved at all, the best possible site
would be none too good.
FROM COLONEL ROGERS
Ocala, Sept. 14, 1915.
Editor Starf I did not attend the
mass meeting last night for two
reasons. First, r do not care to take
any part in city factional politics.
Second, the time to have held a mass
meeting to condemn Taylor's pond,
was when the city council gave
$4000 for it for the location of the
city water and light plant.
As a private citizen I am unalter unalterably
ably unalterably opposed to the present location
for two rensons. First, it is an un undisputed
disputed undisputed fact, that there is ten sewer
wells within a circle of three hundred
yards of the present city wells. That
the water is contaminated at the pres present
ent present site by those sewer wells is evi evidenced
denced evidenced by the fact that the casing of
one of the deep city wells has rusted
through and the contaminated sewer
water comes into the deep well
through the rusted hole in the casing,
so the city council has shut off the
water from this well to keep the city
from using it. If one of the city
wells at this location should become
contaminated from the ten sewer
wells near by,-why not all be contam contaminated
inated contaminated under similar conditions.
My next objection to the present lo location
cation location is a lack of room to build the
new water and light plant upon the
city lot, and the city council informs
me that no more land can be purchas purchased
ed purchased at the present site. I can not un understand
derstand understand that it will cost any more
to combine and build a new city water
and light plant on a new site than to
build on the old, or present site, for
the reason that the old or present
plants must continue to run and fur furnish
nish furnish water and light to the city up
to the minute that the new plant is
ready to take the place of the old
ones, and the old plants shut down
to be used no more.
I can not understand why the
prejudice against Taylor's pond. Mr.
Taylor drilled a deep well there and
had the water analyzed and it was
found as good as any Ocala water
and from that well the ice used by
Ocala is manufactured. Again there
is high dry land, I am told, around
the pond on the city property, where
no garbage has ever been dumped and
where no surface water has ever
stood. The wells could be drilled on
this dry land.
But, to leave the Taylor pond site.
Why not accept Mr. Seymour's pro proposal

It is a bit inconvenient to go into a
saloon and buy the "booze" and tote
it into another place to drink, and
there may be some who are pre

their assistance it is quite likely the
management of the parlor will have a
"porter," who if handed the proper
change and possibly a dime more
will step out and make the purchase.
Such a porter would doubtless be an
expert mixologist for there are quite
a few bartenders who will have to

be more natural than that they would
seek employment next door to their
former haunts? And having brought
the spirituous ingredients back it is
not without range of possibility that
he might supply seltzer. There might
be a charge for the service but there

during the week days, and a one-hour
service on Sundays. Should he put in

PINELLAS AND BLOXHAM
St. Petersburg, Fla., Sept. G.
Editor Star: It is not my desire or
purpose to mix into the "Bloxham
county" campaign in the smallest
way; but a the name and conditions
of Pinellas county are being discussed
in that connection, and as the Star
seems the principal medium of such
discussion, I trust you will give fair
publicity to this statement in behalf
of the county I helped to create.
There may be perfectly good and
sufficient local reasons why the crea creation'
tion' creation' of "Bloxham county" would not
be to the advantage of the people
within its proposed limits; I do not
know, and I would not so state to the
Star if I did know; but for Pinellas,
county independence has resulted in
vast benefits, and in no single respect
that I know of to its disadvantage.
The question of taxes in Pinellas,
in St. Petersburg, in Ocala, in Mar Marion,
ion, Marion, and in every other community in
the United States is the favorite and
most effective bugaboo with which to
head off any political change whatso whatsoever,
ever, whatsoever, although as everybody knows
where an actual public benefit is in involved
volved involved it is really the least importSnt
of all. An the facts as to Pinellas
taxes are certainly being misrepre misrepresented
sented misrepresented for use on the "anti" side of
the "Bloxham" campaign. The state statement
ment statement is repeatedly made that our
county taxes have greatly increased,
and if there is any purpose at all in
such statements it must be to give the
impression that they have increased
because of county division, and that if
we had remained a part of Hills Hillsborough
borough Hillsborough county they would not have
increased. Both of which propositions
make such statements absolutely un untrue.

Star tried to make this point by cit citing

selves. ourselves. We did not have to. Nobody
else imposed them on us. We levied
them, collected them, and expended
them, ourselves, as we chose; and, as
said, because we are doing things.
Taxes have increased during this
same period in every city and county
in Florida that is doing things and
has the goods. They have increased
in Ocala and in Marion, if Ocala and
Marion are keeping up with the pro procession
cession procession of South Florida upbuilding.
The county taxes of Pinellas have not
increased any more than those of
Hillsborough; and Hillsborough is too
great and too rich to suppose that
the cutting off of little Pinellas caused
any of her increase. If we had re remained
mained remained in Hillsborough our county
taxes would have increased fully as
much, and perhaps more, and no
thoughtful citizen of Pinellas will
sincerely say that we could possibly
have received the returns from them
that we now have.
The benefits to Pinellas from county
independence have been enormous,
and the increase of population and en enterprise
terprise enterprise is here to prove it. The
value of the fame and prestige alone
of individuality on the map of Florida,
a state to which settlers and inves investors
tors investors from all over the country are
now flocking, is beyond computation.
I venture the assertion that the name
and location of Pinellas county are
now better known throughout the
country than are those of Hills Hillsborough;
borough; Hillsborough; and a name a good name
is worth just as much to a city or
county as to an individual, and for
the same reasons.
Railroads havr built into Pinellas;
new towns have sprung up; large cap
ital has come in from many sources
and directions; and developments of
all kinds are ahead of almost all other
parts of Florida. A prominent citizen
of Pensacola who recently made a
business trip covering all Florida
found more building and progressive
activity in Pinellas county and her
cities and towns than in any other
part of the state.
It might be difficult to prove that
county independence is responsible
for this extraordinary record; al although
though although in my opinion it is very large largely

fact that it did not prevent it.

Very truly yours,
W. L. Straub,
Editor the St. Petersburg Times.
Ocala, Fla., Sept. 10, 1913.
Editor Times, St. Petersburg, Fla.
Dear Sir: Yours of the 6th received
and contents noted.
The "Bloxham county" campaign is
a public matter, and you have a per perfect
fect perfect right to mix in it if you see fit.
The affairs of your county are also
public, and you have never expressed
any objection to the Star discussing
them as long as its views coincided
with your own.
In Pinellas, the county which, as
you say, you helped create, you have
always had the approval of this pa paper.
per. paper. The Star did not bring Pinellas
into the Bloxham campaign. The Star
has one advantage of you. It is fair fairly
ly fairly well acquainted with both Pinellas
and Bloxham. You are acquainted
only with the former.
You say: "There may be perfectly
good and sufficient local reasons why
the creation of Bloxham county would
not be to the advantage of the people
within its proposed limits; I do not
know, and I would not so state to the
Star if I did know."
In the foregoing utterance, Mr.
Straub, you have given your friends
the strongest reason the Star has
ever seen to fe3r that you are some sometimes
times sometimes prejudiced. Since you have
come into this controversy, and plain plainly
ly plainly show you favor Bloxham, why
should you, as a journalist and public
man, suppress anything you might
know in favor of Marion?
The Star would not treat you and
your county so. If the people in
southwest Pasco tried to form a new
county by cutting off the north end of
Pinellas, and you fought the move movement,
ment, movement, as you doubtless would, the Star
would say that the Times probably
knew what it was talking about; and
it certainly wouldn't expect you to be
a traitor to your county. You seem
so much surprised that the Star
stands by the interests of its home
county, its neighbors and best friends
that the Star in turn can't help won wondering
dering wondering from what standpoint do you
view loyalty and friendship.
You may be sufficiently well off, or
so much of a philosopher, that you
can consider taxes a bugaboo. The
Star and everyday people cannot.
Taxes are a very real thing to them.
But as the Star has repeatedly tried
to impress on you, Pinellas taxes is
not an issue of the Star's creation.
moxnam politicians went to your
large and strong pounty and tried to
make of it an argument for the crea creation
tion creation of a small and weak one. Certain
citizens of Levy county went on their
tracks and obtained letters from
prominent citizens of Pinellas who
claim that as compared with condi
tions in Hillsborough the benefits of
Pinellas are not equal to its burdens.
Surely they have a right to express
their opinions in print. If you don't
want people in your county to use
their inalienable right to complain of
conditions, you had better go around
and muzzle them. You say that 99
per cent of your population is satis satisfied
fied satisfied with Pinellas. From the large
number of letters received from disr
satisfied people, from the comparative
little trouble there was in obtaining
them and the prominence of the
authors, its the Star's opinion that
you put your per centage too high.
Now, the Star has no doubt that
Pinellas is a good county. The Star is
fairly well acquainted with Pinellas,
and when the fight was on for the
creation of Pinellas it used what in influence
fluence influence it had in the favor of Pinellas,
and if it lived in Pinellas it would re resist
sist resist any attempt to annex Pinellas to
another county, or to annex part of
Pinellas to another county. So it
doesn't see why the Times should ar arraign
raign arraign it for standing up for its own
county, or why the Times, or anybody
else who knows little about Marion,
should dispute it when it says there
is very little similarity between
Northwest Hillsborough in 1911 and
Northwest Marion in 1915.
We don't like to twit him with it,
but the Associated Press put one over
on our enterprising friend, Powell,
yesterday. The Clearwater Sun went
to press with the French liner Santa
Anna, with almost 2000 people on
board, on fire in mid-Atlantic. The
Star was going to do the same thing,
but just before press time the West Western
ern Western Union boy came running with a
dispatch which said the ship was safe.
From the best figuring we are able to
do on the subject, it was about six
minutes after the news was known in
New York before it was flashed into
Ocala. It had to be relayed twice.
If the real name of "Municipal
Ownership Advocate," who has a com communication
munication communication in the Banner this morn morning,
ing, morning, was known, it would probably be
found that he is one of the parties
who are trying to hold back the con-
j struction of the new electric plant. To
j turn this electric business, in which
the people of Ocala have $G0,0u0 in-
vested, over to a private corporation.
and to put in a dinky ice plant for
spite work, would exactly suit the
element represented by gentlemen
who are afraid to sign their names to
what they write. As for a municipal
ice factory, if such an enterprise is
ever necessary, if the city has a com combined
bined combined water and electric plant it can
put in an ice machine at any time at
comparatively small expense. We need
primarily the water and electric
plant, and it is against the interest of
the city to delay it.
GO LOOK AT IT
Comparatively few people in Ocala
know anything about the Taylor pond
lot. Two earnest advocates of put
ting the water works on it confessed
to the Star, today, that they hadn't
seen it, execept from the distance, for
To all, of these, and others, the Star
will say, "Go, look at it, and after
you have looked at it, decide if you
want your water supply located on it.
Also, try to figure out how many
thousand dollars it would take to
make it into a park, which park Ocala
at present needs less than it does any anything
thing anything else."
The Ocala Star opposes the would would-be
be would-be promoters of Bloxham county,
probably on the ground that they
ought to choose a prettier name.

The Star understands that at least
one, perhaps two, local firms will bid
on the sewerage contract before the
council this evening. The Star hopes
the council will, if possible, give the
said firms the preference. They will
do the work as well as any other firm,
they are home folks and spend their
money at home, and when the work is
done they will be bigger, stronger
firms, staying with us and able to do
more good work for themselves and
the town. One of the local firms is
II. W. Tucker, who has done in the
past few years much good work in
Ocala and vicinity. The Star has
never heard any complaint of the way
he has carried out any contract. We
have not been informed of the name
of the other firm, -but we believe our
local people can do the work if they
have an opportunity as well as any.
If we are going to move the loca location

to Silver Springs. It would cost no
more than to move it to Taylor's

about either the quantity or quality

LETTER FROM MAJOR IZLAR
Dlackville, S. C. Sept. 11.
Editor Star: I have been reading
some things in the Star which make
me feel like saying a few things my myself,
self, myself, but before doing so I will write
of some matters here which may be of
interest to some of the readers of your
I will begin with the crops, as you
and I are good farmers and know good
crops when we see them. I found out
you were when I read that article of
yours after your visit to the Oklawa Oklawaha
ha Oklawaha Valley Farms. Some folks thought
when they read it that you set out
from Ocala to go fishing and rounded
up at the farm alout the time the
Fnake medicine was out, but not I, I
knew it was no fish story for I had
seen good coin myself up in the Pa Pa-colet
colet Pa-colet valley. Well I have seen some
real good corn here, but not as good
as that you saw that is not so much
of it that was that good. The crops
here are not so generally good as the
people had hoped for, although many
of the farmers have splendid crops of
all kinds, others have poor crops and
will not make corn enough to feed
their stock through another season.
Commercial fertilizers were not used
by any means as freely as hereto heretofore
fore heretofore and while cotton is bringing a
fairly good price and the crop was
produced at much smaller cost, still
the crop is short and there -will be but
little surplus cash left in the hands
of the farmers to supply the needs of
the comi"g winter or to start ofT an another
other another crop for the coming year. Of
course this does not apply to all of
them by any means, for many of the
larger planters have an abundance of
every necessary thing including a
good cash balance in the bank. The
people, however, are not down-hearted
or pessimistic. They have the true
grit and will go at it again, confident
that they will win out sooner or
later and they will.
Some of the best informed cotton
men here, who have dealt in the
staple for many years and of course
made crop and market conditions a
study for years say the crop will be
very short this year, less than 12,000, 12,000,-000
000 12,000,-000 bales. They do not hesitate to
blame the English government for the
present condition of the cotton mar market
ket market and believe that it is all done to
hamper American commerce and so
as to keep our trade with foreign from
growing and expanding while the war
is on. That England does not want
the United Stages to get an establish established
ed established trade in foreign countries fearing
the loss of much of her trade and for former
mer former customers if after the war she
has to compete with us. They scout
the reasons alleged by England for
her intereference with the freedom of
our trade with neutral nations and
do not believe that cotton enters to
any great extent into the composition
of high explosives, saying, if that
were so, why does Russia, so sadly in
need of munitions speak for so little
cotton? And if so, why is it that in
the U. S., where it is claimed that mil millions
lions millions and millions of dollars worth of
munitions are being manufactured,
that the demand here for cotton does
not run the price up? If the English
contention weie true, it does seem
that the ammunit'on factories would
now be in a regulai scramble for cot cotton
ton cotton in order to be in position to meet
their large contracts. It looks so
Further than that some of them
believe that England is responsible for
the strained relations now existing be between
tween between our government and Germany
and believe that England is doing
everything she can to bring about the
breaking point between the U. S. and
Germany, even to war. I have heard
some say (and they believe it) that
the, English government actually paid
a big price to American adventurers
to travel back and forth across the
Atlantic on English lines so that there
may be an American life lost on ev every
ery every ship the submarines torpedo." They
say they have heard this from men
who have traveled here and there
since these troubles began. Now all
these sentiments I have heard ex expressed

of Germans or Americans born of
German parents, but from the lips of

well read and intelligent citizens,1

not know whether these men are right

most of it. I do not know, however,'
that while it is the undoubted right!
of every American citizen to travel on
the high seas in any ship he or she j
may choose, it does seem to me that
no good and patriotic citizen would'
jeopardize his or her life or their
country's peace and prosperity by :
traveling on a ship loaded with contra-

I think so.
On next Tuesday the 14th there is
to be an election held in every county
in this state for state-wide prohibi prohibition,
tion, prohibition, but I have been around and
about here now for nearly two weeks
and I have scarcely heard the subject
mentioned one way or another. The
newspapers have very little to say
about it, so there is no way that I can
guess at what the result will be. All
that I can say is that if the people
are as indiffereftt as they seem to be,
there will be a very light vote cast.
I see by the Star that Mayor Rob Robertson
ertson Robertson has published the two bids for
the city bond issue, and in connection
therewith has asked some pretty per pertinent
tinent pertinent and interesting questions. I
had never seen these bids before and
they are rather interesting documents
and have some unusual stipulations.
It would be or rather is, a thing un unheard

comment further upon the subject
until I see what the bond trustees
have to say in reply to the mayor's
questions, except to say that the two
bids and the sidelight papers accom accompanying
panying accompanying them look as much alike as
Miss O'Marity's twins, Dennis and

could tell them apart is to do as she
