SOI PEBTiHEHT REMARKS FROM ID. SEYMOUR
To the Voters of the Third Ward:
On cay return from a business trip to the East Coast I found that
my name had been placed on the ticket for alderman from this ward with without
out without my knowledge. I thank my friends for the honorMbus conferred apon
me; I also desire to express myself upon some of the questions that maj'
come before this body in the near future.
In my opinion, Ocala's greatest need today, and has been for a long
time, is a better freight rate. If I am elected to the office of alderman, I
shall be in favor of the city cooperating with its merchants and other bus bus-ines3
ines3 bus-ines3 men in securing this reduction through Silver Springs. Silver
Springs is the greatest asset that Ocala possesses, and if we fail to avail
ourselves of the benefits possible from this source, in my opinion, we are
guilty of gross negligence. A canal from Silver Springs to Ocala would
be the best investment Ocala has ever made.
LIGHTS AND WATER. These are very important and I shall favor
giving our citizens an abundance of both.
SEWERAGE SYSTEM AND STREET BUILDING. From the infor information
mation information I have on the subject of sewerage disposal, I shall favor the per perfecting
fecting perfecting of our present sewerage system by the use of septic tanks. I shall
favor the building of all our principal streets with vitrified brick, to the
city limits; all side streets with lime rock, with concrete cement side
ditches. I shall very much oppose the present system of building and
maintaining streets. I consider that anything that is worth doing at all,
is worth doing well. It has been demonstrated time and time again, here
in the last few years, that the scant way in which the streets are now re repaired
paired repaired is a waste of time and money.
OCALA AND THE RAILWAY COMPANIES. I am uncompromising,
ly opposed to the railroads blocking up our streets. We need all the
streets we have and the railroads should be forced to maintain good cross crossings
ings crossings on every street that their tracks cross. These streets belong to the
public, and the railroads are allowed to cross them upon the condition
that they maintain good crossings and do not interfere with the public
use of said streets, and when they fail to comply with these conditions,
their tracks should be taken up.
OCALA NEEDS MONEY. No town can ever be a city of any im importance
portance importance without a bonded indebtedness,, therefore I am in favor of
bonds. We could use a million dollars to good advantage in the next
JIAXUFACTORIES. One of our greatest needs is factories, there therefore,
fore, therefore, I should favor the city catering to the manufacturing world by
offering them cheap electric current, low taxation, good locations and any
other practical inducements.
The above are some of my views with reference to the upbuilding of
Ocala. If you believe I would make you a good representative in the city
council, it is up to you to elect me. I had nothing to do with putting
myself in this race and I shall make no effort in a personal way to be
elected. I did not want the job, but if you elect me, I shall enter into the
work with my whole heart and give you the very best service possible.
To my colored friends I desire to say that I have always been in favor
of giving the negro a square deal, and whenever they develop the ability
to succeed in a business way, I believe in giving them every protection
and equal rights as other citizens in the same line of business

AN OLD INDIAN LEGEND.
Incidents That Led Up to
Naming of Poughkeepsie.
During the days when the Indians
still held sway on the banks of the
Hudson there was a fierce battle be between
tween between the Delaware and the Pequot
tribes. The former won, and among
their captives was a handsome youn:j
I'equot brave. He was offered his life
if he would swear allegiance to tha
Delawares and be branded with their
tribal mark the turtle. He refused,
and preparations were then made to
ki 1 him. As his enemies were on the
point of doing this a young Indian girl
broke into the circle and begged for
his life. She had at one time been a
Tequot. but had been captured by the
Delawares and forced to join their
tribe. II er appeals were so touching
that the warriors were debating thi
matter when the party was attacked
by still another enemy, the Huron In- j
dians. In the excitement the girl cut
ber lover's bonds, but the two found
themselves in the midst of a fierce bat battle

The young warrior escaped, but the
girl was captured by a Huron chief.
Determined to rescue her at any cost,
the Pequot brave disguised himself as
a medicine man and entered the camr
3f the JIurons. By some pretext hf
gained admission to the tent where the
girl was kept prisoner, and late at
night they managed to escape in the
darkness. Their flight was soon dis discovered

young couple reached the river far
enough in advance of their pursuers to
ambark in a canoe and push off from
shore. They were still followed, but
the warrior was young and strong and
succeeded in getting his little craft
safely into a cove at the junction of
the great river and a little stream en entering

Torn Phinney's Adventure.
Tom Phinney was eo accustomed to I
what he was pleased to call his friend's j
"aberrations," that at Van Vechten's
intimation that he desired to be left
alone, Tom stalked off to the billiard j
room without a word."
Unluckily for his peace of mind,
he intruded upon two of his closest
cronies, and Interrupted a desultory
game of billiards. And the instant he
appeared he was assailed by a bom bombardment

by eager curiosity respecting Number
"Say, you fellows, cut It out!" he
cried in desperation. "I'm not going

At which they were all the more
curious and eager, concluding that
Tom himself was in 6ome way in involved

possessed some inside information.
This drew an explosion.
"I don't know a d thing about
it," Tom shouted, beating the air
with his hands. "I saw a lot of fel fellows
lows fellows going into the house, and a wom woman
an woman Confound you chaps! Why
can't you let a fellow alone when he
wants to think by himself!"
"A woman!" he was quickly taken
up by both. "Who was she?"
But Tom relapsed into an obstinate
silence. He was angry and morose,
and his two friends left him in a huff,
calling him impolite names and guy guying
ing guying him for expressing a desire to
put his mental processes through an
unaccustomed exercise. This made
him gloomier still. And when he re reflected

tioned mentioned the mysterious woman in the
taxi, his depression became acute.
He drove the balls around a de deserted
serted deserted table with vicious jabs of his
cue, the while he too bewailed the
fate that kept him away from the
Carterets' yacht. For he could not
think of availing himself of this
pleasure unless Ruddy were along.
Tom's income did not permit of his
owning yachts or motor-cars; but
what he did not know about them
was not, worth anybody's time trying
to find out.
He was thus reminded of a catboat
over at Rocky Cove, belonging to a
friend who was in Europe, and wbich
h could use whenever he wanted to.
He threw down his cue, hunted up
a time-table, then hastened home to
toss a battered but wonderfully com comfortable
fortable comfortable negligee outfit into a bag,
and hie himself over to Long Island.
As he passed through the lounging lounging-room

might find time to join the Carterets.
He was profoundly disgusted that a
girl's caprice was depriving him and
Ruddy of a jolly good time.
That night, after a couple of pipes,
he went to sleep in his little craft's
cabin, and before daylight he was
astir and taking advantage of a light
off-shore breeze. All day he loafed
around the lower Sound, enjoying
himself immensely and incidentally
emptying the provision locker to the
last crumb. He viewed this ccua

In a flash they were gone, and H
was not until a vagrant puff heeled
him perilously astarboard that he 1
recovered his wits and brought his i
boat round again into the wind. By j
then the motor-boat had been all but j

However, Tom reflected, they were j

change of attire in the boathouse, and i
he could put in the evening reconnoi- j

to turn up something in a little place
like Rocky Cove.
But after he had dined at the one
hotel where he felt free to go at this
season without evening clothes, he
was put out to observe that a storm
was brewing. The 6ky was already
