way, but as to the idea that it would
in anyway benent Ocala my own con
clusion is very aptly and forcibly ex
pressed by a story I once heard. It
was like this.
There was a man out in the middle
west who had read and heard of Mount
Vesuvius; of it thunder'ngs and
throwing out vast columns of smoke,
rocks and melted lava. Of Its grandeur
at night, casting its illuminating rays
far out on land and sea. This party's
one absorbing ambition was to see
Vesuvius, and he determined to do so
if he lived long enough to save up the
necessary funds for the trip. After
years of toiling and saving he had the
amount and sailed for Naples. Reach Reaching
ing Reaching that city he lost no time in secur securing
ing securing a guide and conveyance and set
out for Vesuvius, although it was not
then in eruption. This was disap disappointing,
pointing, disappointing, it is true, but he determined
to go to the very verge of the crater
and look down into the bowels of the
earth at the (as lie expected) boiling,
surging cauldron from whence came
melted lava, smokf, ashes and red-hot
rocks. After much toil and many trib-?
ulations he reached the point where j.J.
the guide told him he could not stand j
and walk any nearer, but must lie
down flat and crawl to the verge,
reach his head over and look down in.
Our western friend did so and after
gazing down and around as far as he
could see he slipped backward until
he reached the guide and then with
deep disgust he said, "There ain't a
durn thing in it."

Governor Drew asked Col. Wailes, a
powerful figure in Washington at that
time, to take the contract for collect collecting

Wailes claims to have spent about
855.000 in the fight of twenty-three
years necessary for collecting the
claim, and the late Gen. Robert Bul Bullock
lock Bullock of this city, who served two
terms In Congress, made affidavit to
the fact that CoL Wailes' books, up to

sand thousand less than the legislature of 1909
pitched to Col. Wailes for his years of
service and expenditures, to say noth nothing
ing nothing of interest, and which he was
forced by poverty to accept.
Two legislative acts and two cabinet
resolutions gave Governor Drew au authority

Wailes. The contract was afterward
ratified by Governors Bloxam, Perry,
Mitchell and Fleming and the legisla legislative

Messrs. Meffert, MacKay, Chambllss,

Ditto, Harris, Thomas and a dozen
mdre other citizens, besides Mr. R. A.
Burford, division counsel of the At Atlantic
lantic Atlantic Coast Line, and Superintendent
Riddle and Assistant Superintendent
McCarthy of the Atlantic Coast Line.
Mr. Burford opened the ball by read
ing the editorial in yesterday's Star,
relating to the city and the Coast Line
Mr. Burford repelled, so he said, the
insinuations aeainst himself and the
councilmen as well as the attacks on
the railroad. As the Star didn't make
any Insinuations against either Mr,
Burford or the councilmen, and has no
apologies to make for what it said
about the railroad, we will make no
comment except" to thank Mr. Burford
for showinsr so very plainly that the
broadside hit the mark.
Mr. Riddle made a brief talk, telling
what his company wished to do. As
aforesaid, it wants to close South
Sixth and Seventh streets, and If al allowed
lowed allowed to do so will build a commo commodious
dious commodious brick depot. He did not offer to
pay the city for the streets.
Remarks were made by Messrs. Mef Meffert,
fert, Meffert, MacKay. Ditto, Harris and
others, all of whom seemed to think it
would be better to allow the streets
closed than to allow
of affairs to continue.
The members of the council seemed
inclined to favor the following plan.

Sixth and Seventh streets, provided it
will change its tracks so as to clear

Hilly Clifford at the Temple
Ocala theatergoers, or those few
who witnessed the presentation of
"The Girl, the Man and the Game," at
the Temple theater last night, by Billy
S. Clifford and a strong supporting
company, are unanimous in their praise
of the attraction.
There is not much of a plot to the
Girl, the Man and the Game, but it is
replete with amusing situations and
bright and catchy lines. The characters
of Charlie Porter, Dorothy Merry,
Uncle Rudolph and Mrs. Elsie Merry,
as portrayed by Billy Clifford. Miss
Mae Collins, Jack Trainer and Miss
Marie Walter, respectively, were all
excellent, "Charlie" and "Uncle Ru Rudolph"
dolph" Rudolph" being exceptionally good.
There were some fifteen popular
song hits interspersed in the piece and
the singing of "Home Run Bill" by
Miss Mae Collins and the chorus of
basball girls was especially good. An
other very attractive number was "Be
My Bumble Bee," with special costun costun-ing
ing costun-ing for the chorus to match.
All in all, the attraction Is a most
creditable one, and it was regretted
that it received such poor support in
