The Water Company Proposition
Macon. Ga.. March 12. 1912.
To the. Mayor and City Council of
Ocala, Gentlemen: The Ocala "ft ater
Company through its officers and also
through the undersigned committee,
appointed by the holders of the stock
and bonds of the company, beg leave
to submit the following offer for the
sale of the water works to the city,
and for the surrender and transfer of
the franchise under which the com company
pany company is now operating. This proposi
tion is submitted In response to the
request of the municipality recently
received. The property being encum
bered, by a first and second mortgage,
to" secure bond Issues aggregating
$100,000, it has been practically impos impossible,
sible, impossible, until now, to submit to you a
proposition because of the necessity of
obtaining the written agreement of
the holders of the company's securi
ties. This having been accomplished
and the company at the annual meet meeting
ing meeting of its stockholders, held' March (9th,
1912, having adopted proper resolu resolutions
tions resolutions authorizing its officers and direc
tors to negotiate and carry out a sale
of the water works, provided an accep
table price can be agreed on. it Is now
in order to respond-to your request for
a price of the property.
The figure which we deed just, and
reasonable and which we are willing
to accept, is $89,262.08.
This proposition covers the entire
plant and works and machinery of the
company. Including all real estate
with improvements! and all personal
property of every description belong belonging
ing belonging to the company, on hand, includ including
ing including the franchise and contract rights
of every character, the going value,
and good will all of which will be
transferred free from debts and en encumbrances;
cumbrances; encumbrances; the company reserving
its accounts receivable and such cash
as may be on hand.
It Is perhaps proper that we should
furnish some statement of the basis of
this prlee or valuation of the property.
You have already on file a paper sub submitted
mitted submitted by us showing the estimated
cost to Teplace the physical value of
the plant. This paper was prepared
by a competent engineer who has no
interest in this property or In the sale
of It and -who Is a man of extensive
experience In the practical operations
of water plants and who is well ac
quainted with the cost of labor and
material In this section. From this
statement It appears that the actual
cost of the bare material and labor to
build such a plant as the company
now has, would be $73,189.47.
To this must be added the necessary
cost of superintendence and the inci
dental expenses of construction, be
sides the cost of engineering, which
must be Incurred; all of which accord
ing to experience and usage will add
to the material and, labor cost at least
fifteen per cent or the sum of $11, $11,-345.61.
345.61. $11,-345.61. Thus It would require, to pay all the
expense for completing such a plant
and having it in readiness to begin
operations, the sum of $84,534.08, and
to this sum Interest for the period nec
essary to construct must also be added.
making a total, as shown by the state statement
ment statement referred to, of $87,079.39.
Another feature or item shown In
the estimates we submitted consists of
the going value of the plant.. This you
will readily understand, represents the
advantage of having the business al
ready created, customers and patrons
already obtained, and a present Income
from the business. The statement sub submitted
mitted submitted fixes the going value at $7, $7,-127.39
127.39 $7,-127.39 which Is conservative. In ad addition
dition addition to this there must also be con considered
sidered considered the value of the unexpired
franchise from the present date to
December, 1918. A reasonable figure
for this should be the estimated profit
to the company from the hydrant
rentals, which Is reasonably placed at
about one-half of the amount which
the city would pay to the company for
that period. The statement we sub submitted
mitted submitted fixes this item at $17,368.84.
Upon investigation you will ascer
tain that In all estimates of value of
such plants, these items of the going
value and of the unexpired contract of
franchise are always considered and
are property of the company, and have
been so adjudged In the courts of the
United States, where this question has
been at issue in arriving at the value
of a property of. this character.

element to which depreciation could be

depreciation in franchise, superintend superintendence,

well grounded in the law. He has
. practiced in all the courts of Massa Massachusetts,
chusetts, Massachusetts, but it is not on record that
he attends white churches, or is re received
ceived received Into white society. If he .Is a
self-respecting negro, he doesn't want
to be.
As .the "entire country remembers,
some years ago, President Roosevelt
served out summary punishment to the
negro troops who shot up Brownsville.
It was one of his few righteous acts,
and had he possessed the sturdy man manhood
hood manhood of old Grover Cleveland, he
would have stood by it without any
flinching or temporizing. The negroes
of the country were naturally in a
rage about It, and fearing to lose their
votes In large enough quantities to
' several concessions, among them ap appointing

Of course, Mr. Roosevelt was in his

much. But when, a few months ago, a
coterie of Massachusetts lawyers tried
,. to sneak Lewis Into the American Bar
Association, they showed perverted
prejudice and political hypocrisy in a
high or rather low degree.
The American Bar Association is
composed of lawyers, but a man being
a lawyer doesn't entitle him to mem membership
bership membership In It. He must be acceptable
to the members, same as in any other
association or. order. That .the associa association

been proven time and again. So when
. the little bunch of Massachusetts at at-'
' at-' torneys presented the name of Lewis
. without informing the association's
committee that he was a negro, they
were guilty of a trick that an honest
negro would be ashamed of. The com committee

found he was a negro, promptly re rescinded

Attorney General Wickersham saw
his chance to make a grand-stand

the Hugomont Castle gates by James McDowell and John Graham. It was a
small thing. But the results have been marvelous as we look back over the
intervening years. Philip- D. Armour knew the value of little things. They
say he packed everything but the last breath of a hog utilizing the waste in
.the manufacture of by-products made him wealthy. The email boy by stick sticking:
ing: sticking: his finger In the leak in the dam saved Holland from destruction. A
few drops of water on a stone makes no Impression the constant drip
. wears away the stone. The little point on the auger prepares the way for
the large bored hole. A single grain of corn produces from one to two per perfect
fect perfect ears. And so the little dime Is a part of a dollar. Dollars at interest
produce dollars just as surely as the seed sown on rich ground brings forth
an abundant harvest. Then save the DIME! Watch It grow.

The first meeting of the Southern
Rescue Mission Convention was held
at the First Methodist church in our
city last night.
The opening sermon was preached
by Rev. Edgar Wilson of Gainesville,
Fla. Mr. Wilson is one of the finest
men in the Florida Methodist confer conference;
ence; conference; his quiet manner in contrast to
many more eloquent brethren, has
greater influence and power over his
audience, especially as it is supported
by a saintly character. His subject
last night was in harmony with his
disposition, and most appropriate to
the opening exercises of such a con convention,
vention, convention, taking as his text: 'Brethren,
if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye
that are spiritual restore such a one,
in the spirit of meekness, considering
thyself, lest thou also be tempted."
Human nature is the same everywhere,
equally liable to temptation, equally
weak, and liable at any time to fall;
equally adverse to restore, often more
inclined to excommunicate, boycott,
ostracise. But if we are spiritually
helped, guided, and filled with the
spirit, especially with the attribute of

meekness and humility. we are best
fitted in the noble work of restoring,

saving those who are so overtaken.

Such is the spirit of the Southern

Rescue Mission, Inc., under the laws j
of Georgia, who today in our city be-
gin a three day's convention to advo-!

cate its claims.

The Rev. J. Lewis of Tampa, preach

ed in the same church this morning at

11 o'clock, and the business session be

an at 2 o'clock this afternoon. To

night at 7:30 the Rev. Lamar Sims of
Albany, Ga,, will give an address, ad advocating
vocating advocating the urgent need of protecting

the manhood and womanhood and

young life of this state from the rav

ages of the social evil.

This convention ought to be largely

attended and supported by all in this
city who have the municipal health

and physical as well as moral health

at heart.

These services are preceded by a

song service, presided over by the Rev.

J. B. Ley, the respected and honored

pastor of the First M. E. church, who

also has charge of the arrangements

for the comfort of the many delegates
who are attending this convention,
many of whom are visiting Ocala for
the first time and are already loud in
their praises of the beauty and won wonderful
derful wonderful opporunities and growth of this
fair and lovely city. We trust that

the convention will be largely attend

On the instant the bear rose to his

paws. A hoarse, frightful guttering

roar burst from his red slavering Jaws, j

then he lurched side ways and fell
forward, fighting the air madly for a

With staring eyes that missed no
