(Associated Press)
Mr. Meffert Proves' the Authenticity
of His Statements in Regard to
Location of the Water Plant
Editor Star: In the Ocala Banner
of September 16th, Mr. Harris head headed
ed headed an article, "Was Our Statement
Authorized."
This being addressed to the public
we will let the people be the judges.
At Monday's mass meeting, Mr.
Harris made the following state statement,
ment, statement, "that no official action had been
taken in permanently fixing the loca location
tion location of the water works and electric
light plant on the water works lot,
hence any step taken in that direction
was unauthorized." Soon after some
one in the audience asked for infor information
mation information and the question asked me by
Mr. Chamhliss was this: "Did you
make contracts to have the present
work done, building the electric plant
without authority from the council?"
This was emphatically denied, and
proved by Councilman Roess, who was
present and stated that the work was
authorized, "and furthermore said he
offered the resolution, which was
unanimously adopted by the council.
Mr. Harris further says: "Before
making the above statement he con consulted
sulted consulted the city clerk and members of
the council, who voluntarily told him
that no official action permanently
fixing the location had been taken."
As to official action, there are com complete
plete complete plans for the combined light
and water plant, also for the electric
pumping plant, accompanied with a
full set of blue prints showing every everything
thing everything in detail, location of every ma machine,
chine, machine, receiving well, new well and
water tower, including building and
the exact spot where it is to be placed.
There is also a full written report
prepared by Mr. Twombly, which was
carefully explained by him and unani unanimously
mously unanimously accepted by all councilmen
present. Just recently, at a meeting
of the council, for the purpose of go going
ing going over the specifications with Mr.
Hanney, who was called here to ex explain
plain explain to the council in detail, after
doing so the specifications were ac accepted
cepted accepted by all members present, with without
out without one dissenting vote. The council
has even gone as far as to instruct
the finance committee to have seventy-five
copies of the specifications
printed and date fixed to receive bids.
Is this no official action ?
No objection had been made to the
location of the light and water plant
until I advocated the purchase of the
Converse mill site. Advertisements
were placed in the local papers, ask asking
ing asking for bids on the proposed electric
driven pumping plant. Such were re received

Iver Mc-Iver & MacKay were the lowest bid bidders
ders bidders and the contract was awarded
them. The council instructed the city
attorney to draw up the contract be
tween the city and Mclver & MacKay
under Mr. Twombly's direction. The
new well was also contracted for and
located within a few feet of the side sidewalk
walk sidewalk in plain view. No objections
were made to the work being done at
the present site. Machinery for the
pumping plant is on the ground. Mc Mclver
lver Mclver & MacKay will soon complete
the work. In all, the expenditures
contracted for will be close to $7,000.
All of a sudden opposition develops.
"When I advocated the purchase of the
Converse lot, the editor of the Ban Banner
ner Banner took up the fight at once, and in
no uncertain terms proclaimed to the
public that the present lot was entire entirely
ly entirely too small, objecting to the water,
the Converse mill and many other
things. Soon after a petition was pre presented

for months knew that a new well was
being drilled and other work pro progressing,

Why did the neighborhood wait so
long? Something must have waked
them besides the thousand pound
hammer of the well driller. Also,
some of the councilmen began to show
signs of hearing somebody's noise till
actually one of them presented a res resolution
olution resolution to the council that one thou thousand
sand thousand dollars be spent for test wells,
and a plant to be built on the Robert Robertson
son Robertson lot. Five councilmen, apparently,
believed it was to the best interest of
the city, so the resolution carried. No
doubt the pressure brought to bear
from outside agitation on several
councilmen influenced them to help
pass what I called foolish legislation.
Then the noise began to grow louder
till a mass meeting was called. What
transpired there is generally known.
Two gentlemen were enthusiastic over
the Taylor pond lot, stating that the
property had been purchased for a
site for the light and water plant. I
emphatically opposed the Taylor pond
lot as a location for the light and
water plant, as it is not at all suitable.
You cannot hope to get soft water
out of limestone; then there is the
danger of drainage through the sink;
and lastly, the bad reputation of the
lot, let alone the expense of prepar preparing

do with all the several thousands dol dollars

might -get something for the com compression
pression compression pumps and motors. We
would lose five thousand dollars at
least. We are told to economize in
every department, but we would
throw the people's money away by the
thousands of dollars if we move the
water works.
For information to the general pub public,

geological survey, and the Florida

of Thomas Nayland Vaughn. Be Between

Read pages 366 and 367 carefully and

you will admit that it is impossible to

Now again, as to the Taylor pond
property being purchased for the lo location

somebody must be mistaken. In look looking

finance committee, composed of C. R.

H. Taylor, was empowered to nego negotiate
tiate negotiate with the owners of the Taylor
pond or Robertson lot, with a view
of purchasing it for city purposes
and says the lot was bought for a
dumping ground for the city. The
purchase jof this lot was authorized
for the sum of $4000 at a special
meeting held for that purpose, Nov.
21, 1911. The following members
were present, all voting yea: H. C.
Jones, G. A. Carmichael, R. R. Car Carroll,
roll, Carroll, W. P. Edwards, H. A. Fausett,
E. T. Helvenston, J. H. Taylor and C.
R. Tydings. The deed for this prop property
erty property was executed by L. W. Duval and
wife on the 22nd day of November,
1911, without any restrictions or
stipulations or that the lot was to be
used for any particular purpose. The
Ocala water works were puchased for
$42,500. Deed for same was executed
from Ocala Water Company, by R. L.
Anderson, president, and J. A. Camp Campbell,
bell, Campbell, secretary, August 2nd, 1913.
This shows that the Robertson lot
was purchased nearly two yes.rs prior
to the water works. Somebody must
be mistaken. J. M. Meffert.

SENATOR BLITCH IS SORE
ALSO, HE IS STUNNED
Hark, from Montbrook a mournful
sound;
Sim Blitch doth groan and turn
around.
Why doth he groan, oh, why that
sound?
His little Bloxham can't be found.
Oh, listen to his tearful lay.
The coon, he says, he won the day;
"For shame," he cries, "the coon to
pay,
To cast a vote 'gainst us today."
Ah. Sim, my boy, you've yet to learn,
That every tide must have a turn;
And when you have a county lost
Stand up; don't try to be a frost.
The world likes a good sport and
approves of a game loser, so we fear
it will have a rather small opinion of
Senator J. S. Blitch of Levy county,
who having received a stunning defeat
in his attempt to create a little county
of his own, sent out the following
syndicate letter to the Times-Union,
the Tampa Tribune and, we suppose,
a few other papers:
Senator Blitch's Letter
Bloxham county, created by the last
legislature subject to a referendum
vote in the district affected, was de
feated at the polls Tuesday and the
fondest dreams of a large number of
her citizens and thousands of well-
wishers throughout the state are tem
porarily defeated.
Out of a qualification of about 925
approximately 900 votes were casti
and as nearly as I can tell at this
writing 460 votes were cast against
the creation of Bloxham county, while
440 were cast for its creation.
An analysis of the vote gives the
following results. The Levy county
side or that of the territory proposed
to be taken from Levy county and
where practically all the voters are
white, grave 344 votes for the new
county as against 169. Over on the
Marion county side, where probably
eighty-five per cent of the voters are
negroes, nearly 300 against and less
than 100 for the new county. It will
require the official count to get cor
rect figures, but these hgures are
practically correct.
It is conceded by both sides that
had the vote been left to the white
voters, Bloxham county would have
been created.
The contest was very sharp and at
times bitter. It was stated yesterday
at the polls that this was the fiercest
contest we had had since 1876.
The Bloxham county people attri attribute
bute attribute their defeat to the negro vote
and also to the present financial and
unsettled conditions, as many promi prominent
nent prominent men who have heretofore been
in favor of a new county, thought
that this was not the time to create a
new county.
JNew county adherents are in no
ways dismayed, but are freely stat
ing that two years from now with
some change in the lines and the
ratification of the grandfather clause

Montbrook, Fla., Sept. 15.
In every political contest in this
and some other states, in which ne
groes vote, the blame for the resul
is generally laid by the defeated party
on the darkey.
In the first place, Senator Blitch's
figures are woefully and ridiculously
inaccurate. He says 85 per cent, o

the voters are negroes. If it wasn t
that we believe that the bump Sen Senator
ator Senator Blitch received addled his wits
so that he will be unable to count cor-
rctly for several days, we would ac
cuse him of intentionally falsifying.
As it is, we will be content with giv giving
ing giving a few figures which will show Mr.
Blitch can't see straight.
We suppose Senator Blitch will ad
mit that negroes do not vote in dem democratic
ocratic democratic primaries. He will admit it
because he has to. Having admitted
this, we will ask him what he will do
with the following:
Blitchton Primary vote, 36; coun
ty division election, 76.
Cotton Plant Primary, 30; county
division, 66.
Flemington Primary, 54; county
division, 135.
Fairfield Primary, 33; county di-
vision, lb.
Geiger Primary, 28; county divis
ion, 66.
Romeo Primary, 21; county divis
ion, 25.
According to these figures there
are in the six Marion precincts 202
democratic and therefore white votes,
while only 383 votes were cast on the
county division issue. This would
tablish that 10 votes out of every
19 are white, while Senator Blitch
says that 85 per cent are colored.
But there is something else to con
sider. There are a number of white
citizens who did not vote in the pri
r
mary. Some few are republicans,
but most of them are democrats who
didn't care to go to the polls.
But in this county division election.
almost every man who had a vote
went to the polls.
It is true that Northwest Marion
lias a large number of colored people,
and that they, in order to help keep
up their schools, pay their poll taxe3
better than usual. But that 40 per
cent of the voters of Northwest Mar
ion are colored is a high estimate.
Now, as for the Levy precincts; the
heaviest vote for county division was
cast at Raleigh, which has a consid
erable number of negro voters. They
all voted for Bloxham they wouldn't
have dared to vote against it.
We do not know the proportion of
whites and colored in Williston. Mont
brook, Senator Blitch's home, voted
against division 42 to 17 he can tell
his home folks that their's is a Sambo
own if he wants to. Its a safe bet he
won't. The enterprising town of
Morriston voted against division by
57 to 16 we have never heard there
was an undue proportion of negroes
In it. Gulf Hammock and Lebanon, in
which nearly all the voters are white,
went against division. Inglis, where
there may be a few negro votes, gave
a small majority for division.
Its no fault of the Bloxhamites
that all the negroes did not vote for
tiivrsion. They worked with them
hard enough argued, and, it is sus suspected,
pected, suspected, threatened some and implored
others.
As a sample of whether the Blox
hamites wanted negro votes or not,
we print the following text of a cir
cular distributed among the colored
people in the last days of the cam
paign. This circular was evidently
printed in the office of the Williston
Courier, as the type is similar to that
used on that paper. It was undoubt undoubtedly
edly undoubtedly sent out by the Bloxham county
committee, and it is likely that Sen Senator
ator Senator Blitch knew of it. Read it, you
citizens of Marion and Levy, and
consider whether it is decent in a

Copy of Letter from P. H. Nugent of
Ocala, to Senator Blitch While in
Tallahassee
Ocala, Fla., April 8, 1915.
Senator Blitch, Tallahassee, Fla.
Dear Sir: I note that you have in introduced
troduced introduced a law for state-wide prohi prohibition
bition prohibition in Florida, and I earnestly
commend for your consideration my
hobby a grandfather clause law for
Florida.
I expect Senator Terrell to intro introduce
duce introduce it in the senate and Crosby in the
house. Believe me, that thi3 will be
in line for what we want and need. I
have submitted the matter to Mrs. T.
E. Bridges, who is the head of the W.
C. T. U. of this county, and she tells
me that she would rather see my law
pushed than the state-wide prohibi prohibition
tion prohibition law. She thinks my law will be
easier to pass and the sure forerun forerunner
ner forerunner of the other.
Dr. S. H. Blitch told me that he
would be willing to go to Tallahassee
to help put our law through.
Yours truly, P. H. Nugent,
Clerk of Circuit Court, Marion Co.
Colored People of Marion County:
Let every colored man in Marion
county that thinks well of his home,
freedom and manhood read and pon
der over the efforts made in the last
egislature by Senator Terrell and
Representatives Crosby and Hender
son in the house, of Marion county, to
deprive him of his vote. The grand
father clause that Mr. Nugent wants
into law, and which your two repre representatives
sentatives representatives in Tallahassee this last
spring worked so hard for, means that
every colored man in Marion county
will be denied the right to vote.
Is this treating our race right?
Are these men and your county of
Marion any friends of yours? How
ong will you vote with people who
work this way against you?
We appeal to the colored people of
Marion county to rebuke this county
that tries to disfranchise you. Come
out Tuesday and vote so as to show
Marion county that you do not ap approve
prove approve of this grandfather clause and
vote for cutting loose from such a
county. Vote for Bloxham if you
want to do this.

AN ARAB LEGEND.
8 to ry of tha Covetous Man Who Want
a Stap Too Far.
The Arabs tell a story to show how
a mean man's philosophy overshoots
itself. Under the relgn of the first ca caliph
liph caliph there was a merchant of Bagdad
equally rich and avaricious.
One day he bargained with a porter
to carry home fsr him a basket of por porcelain
celain porcelain vases for 10 paras. As they
went along he said to the man: "My
friend, you are young, and I am old.
You can still earn plenty. Strike a
para from your hire.: "Willingly," re replied
plied replied the porter. This request was re repeated
peated repeated again and again, until, when
they reached the house, the porter had
only a single para to receive.
As they went upstairs the merchant
said. "If you will resign the last para
I will give you three pieces of advice."
"Be It so." said the porter. "Well,
then," said the merchant, "if any one
tells you It Is better to be fasting than
feasting do not believe him. If any
one tells you it Is better to be poor
than rich do not believe him. If any
one tells you it Is better to walk than
ride In your carriage do not believe
him."
"My dear sir," replied the astonished
porter, "I knew these things before.
But if you will listen to me I will give
you such advice as you never heard be
fore." The merchant turned around.
and the porter, throwing the basket
down the staircase, said, "If any one
tells you that one of your vases is un
broken do not bellev him."

says: "One of my family had been
having considerable trouble with the
back and kidneys. At one time the
patient was obliged to give up for
several days on account of lameness

across the back. As soon as Doan's

Kidney Pills were taken these trou

bles were relieved and by continuing
their use, a cure was eventually

YEAR OF INDEPENDENCE

The Custom of Dating Proclamation

by the President.
While the president of the United

States dates oilkial document from
the year of the Declaration of Inde

pendence, there id no law on the sub

ject, and the custom id neither general

nor binding, the form being used onlj
in proclamations by the president. It
originated before the adoption of the
constitution during the days of the

confederacy.

The original articles of confederation

show they were signed by the dele

gates "at Philadelphia, In the state of

Pennsylvania, the 9th day of July, in

the year of our Lord, 1773, and In the
third year of the Independence of
America." The signers dated "the In Independence

although the war was still young and
continued several years longer. The
constitution shows it was signed "the

17th day of September A. D.. 1787, and

of the Independence of the United

States of America the 12th."
The first proclamation Issued by
Washington as president was, "Given
under my hand and the seal of the
United States In the city of New York
the 14th day of August A. D., 1700,
and In the fifteenth year of the sov sovereignty
ereignty sovereignty and Independence of the
United States." lie used the phrase
"sovereignty at:d Independence" In
two proclamations and then dropped
the word sovereignty.
All subsequent executive proclama proclamations
