Following was the vote in the county division election of Tuesday, in
Northwest Marion and East Levy counties:

The vote shows that there never
has been any demand for a new coun county

vicinity. Northwest Marion, the
wrongs of whose people were so tear tearfully
fully tearfully held up before the legislature,
and which Williston fondly believed
was a hotbed of secession, voted
against division almost en masse.
Every Marion precinct voted' to stay
at home, and in only one Flemington
did the divisionists make even a
showing. Blitchton, Cotton Plant and
Geiger will have to draw straws to de decide

for a county seat, as Williston.
STAR BORE THE STANDARD
The Star is proud of the victory,
because from the first it made the
fight it own, and never let up until it
was won. The Star could fight coun county

had been aware for years that the
people of Northwest Marion had

its indifference. So when the cam campaign

The Star has also many long-time
friends in Levy, particularly in Mont Montbrook

sure those communities would prove
sheet-anchors of sanity, and the result
shows its forecast was correct.
SETTLED FOR KEEPS
The Star is glad the fight is over;
it is also glad it has been made. It
has settled the question for keeps. In

a long time before any bunch of self self-seeking

if the plant was located on this

value of adjoining property which he

$3000. Shallow well of soft water to

men familiar with steam boilers can
appreciate this valuable asset.
Second; the water tower lot can be
sold for several thousand dollars, as
the new tower will be located on the
present site of the water works. A
saving on side tracks and right-of-way,
probably $3000, and several
other things I could mention, but if
any one cares to spend the time Mr.

At the mass meeting Monday night,
Councilman Roess gave it as a reason
for trying to shift the waterworks to
the Taylor's pond lot that one of the
wells on the present site had gone
bad. The trouble with this well be
gan 'some years ago, and is caused
not by the water supply but the cas casing,
ing, casing, which is old and worn out, giving
away. This well has not been used
for drinking water for years. It has
been held in reserve for use in case
of a very bad fire, but the water from
it hasn't been allowed to mix with
that of the other wells. Mr. Roess
has been on the

two years, and it is strange that he
co carefully guarded this matter until
it was necessary to mention it in order
to carry his point. In future, we
would advise Mr. Roess to tell the
people all he knows about their drink drinking
ing drinking water and other public matters.
The people of Ocala don't elect men
to keep their city affairs covered up.
SITES FOR WATERWORKS
The people of Ocala, particularly the
heads of families, should go and take
a look at the Taylor pond lot, where
a majority of our city council seems
willing to make the great mistake of
locating our waterworks.
The east side Of the lot is high and
dry. The remainder is swamp. From
the south there runs into and soaks
all thru it a small stream that for the
last thirty years has practically been
a sewer for a large part of the town.
On the southern and western side are
negro cabins tenanted by people who
are never fastidious, and many of
whom would be unclean if the health
officers did not keep a close watch on
them. Some two or three acres of
the lot have been for the last few
years a deposit for the entire garbage
of the city. Into the west side of the
lot, the pipe that carries' the filthy
water at the foot of Magnolia street
discharges its contents.
The ground is obscene on the sur surface
face surface and fairly reeking with filth for
no one knows how many feet in depth.
If your waterworks are located on
this lot, the wells will have to be sunk
thru this soil. It is inevitable that
more or less of the filth will get into
the pipes while the wells are being
dug. It is possible, of course, to find
pure water far down under the sur surface.
face. surface. But anytime in the next hun hundred
dred hundred years a crack may develop in the
limestone, and send some deposit of
filth into the water supply. And in a
minute of time enough disease may go
into the water pipes to sicken a thou thousand
sand thousand people.
As Mr. Zewadski most truthfully
and appropriately said at the Monday
night meeting, the reputation of the
lot is enough to condemn the propo proposition.
sition. proposition. Several engineers, expert and dis disinterested
interested disinterested men, have advised against
locating the waterworks on this lot.
Among the reasons they give against
it is that if it became known that
Ocala was obtaining its water supply
from such a source, it would do the
town great harm.
And it would. It would do it as
much harm as a yellow fever epidemic
and be harder to live down.
Some people say, "All this should
have been said before the council
spent $6000 on the lot."
In the first place, the council only
paid $4000 for the lot. The council
virtually had to buy the lot. And it
did a very good piece of business
when it made the purchase. The city
was absolutely compelled to have a
place to put its garbage. It has more
than saved the money on that alone.
The lot is useful in other ways. It is
a good place for the city stables. As
Mr. Meffert says, there is a big sup supply
ply supply of lime and flint rock on it, that
will be worth thousands of dollars to
the city in the future. The city is
bound to have a crematory sometime,
which can be located on it. If the
city buys the gasplant, or puts up
one of its own, it can be located there.
As population increases, the lot can
be drained and filled in and factories
located there. If the Silver Springs
canal ever comes to Ocala, the lower
part of the lot will be the only acces accessible
sible accessible place for its mooring pool and
As a matter of fact, the city could
not afford to take $20,000 for the lot
today. Twenty years from now it will
be worth $100,000. But not for water waterworks.
works. waterworks. At the least computation, it would
take $25,000 to make a decent park
out of the Taylor pond lot, and then
nine-tenths of the people wouldn't
use it. The same money would build
a trolley line to Silver Springs which
nine-tenths of the people would use.
Postmaster Rogers, in his letter to
the Star about the water works site,
gives as one of his reasons against
the present location the fact that ten
seweverage wells are located in 300
yards of it. Very true, "Colonel Eob,"
but we are going to put in a sewerage
system and do away with the danger dangerous
ous dangerous wells. Your objection would apply
with tenfold force on the Taylor pond
lot. Mr. Rogers, however, is not mar
ried to said lot. As will be seen by
his letter he favors Mr. Seymour's
location, and when the Star called his
attention to it, he said he would highly
approve of Silver Spiings. H wants
the question properly settled for the
A few months ago, President Mef
f ert of the council proposed that the
' city change its charter so that it
could offer financial inducements to
manufacturing enterprises, and some
people charged him with originating
a graft scheme. Now it is proposed
that as an incentive to solid prosper prosperity

A couple of thousand dollars might
induce a manufacturing enterprise,
with twenty or more families to locate
here. A park would not induce any anybody
body anybody to come here and few of our
j own people would use it. We wonder
jwhy this city is plagued with schemes
to put the cart before the horse'
PARKS AND SWIMMING POOLS
One of the arguments in favor of
moving the waterworks to the Taylor
pond lot is that it will enable the city
to have swimming pools and a park.
As the readers of the Star know, it
has contended vigorously in the past
for swimming pools for Ocala boys.
It considers them as a necessity and
something the city should have as
soon as possible.
There is, however, plenty of room
on the present water works lot for a
swimming pool. There is in fact, al already
ready already a swimming pool there, and
when the new waterworks are install installed,
ed, installed, it can be returned to its original
purpose, or another pool can be built
at a comparatively small cost. There
will be a public swimming pool more
quickly and more cheaply on the
present site than elsewhere.
As for a park, it would be nice for
Ocala to have a park. But Ocala needs

provement. improvement. There is very little de demand
mand demand for a park. Not one tenth of
our people even think of a park. As
compared with many cities, Ocala is
more than half park. The streets are
wide and shaded and most of the
houses have yards. Parks are needed
principally in cities where children
have no room to play, and grown
folks no resting place to go out of
doors. Ocala is nothing like that,
and will not be for a long time.
But if we had to have a park, it
would be impossible for us to pick a
worse place for a park than the Tay Taylor
lor Taylor pond lot. If our people will take
the trouble to go and look at it, most
of them, we think, will agree with the
Star. The ground is filthy and the
surroundings are ugly. It would take
thousands of dollars to make a park
of it, and there are a dozen places in
town where the same money could be
expended to a much greater advan advantage.
