LOWER DATES FOR
PATRIOTIC HEN WISH TO GIVE FOIL ADVANTAGE OF
MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP TO OCALA PEOPLE
Convenience Increased and Cost Re Reduced
duced Reduced by Tuesday Xight's Ac
tion of the City Council
At Tuesday night's meeting of the
city council, the following resolution
was presented by Alderman Taylor
of the light and water committee:
Reduction in Klectric and Water
To the Honorable City Council:
We, the electric light and water
committee, beg to recommend the
following reductions in rates for
electric current and water:
Current for lighting to be reduced
from Sc. to Cc. per K. W. hour.
Current fcr power, using oOO to
700 K. W. per month, reduced from
6c. to 5c.
Current for power, using 1000 to
2000 K. W. per month, reduced from
"c. to 4 c.
Current for power, using 2000 to
S000 K. V. per month, reduced from
4 c. to 3c.
Current for cooking be furnished
at 3c. per K. W. hour, and that the
minimum charge be reduced from
5 1.50 'to $1 per ironth, the above re re-dnction
dnction re-dnction of rate to begin with the
month of December. 1 f 1 3
We recommend that in orr'er to
encourage the use of current for
cooking, that tli2 superintendent be
allowed to order stoves, etc.. for all
..parties depositing in advance the
cost of stove with 10 per cent and
the freight added.
We figure that under our present
load and conditions, if the plarit is
economically managed, it should
make a profit of approximately ?.j00
per year at above rates, which should
pay interest on bonds outstanding
and leave $3000 to $4000 per year,
which should be used to retire said
bonds and not be transfered to the
general fund as we have been doing.
We also figure that these reduc reductions
tions reductions will vgreatly increase the day
load and thereby decrease our op operating

We would recommend that the
water rate be reduced as follows:

Information Rureau at Los Angeles
It seems to the writer that the
real estate men of the state- should
toke the initiative to get the boards
or trade, county commissioners and
the state legislature, to combine in
their efforts to establish a bureau of
intromation here in Los Angeles, as
there are many visitors here now
and they will continue to flow in and
out till some time after the Panama
canal exposition, during which time
millions will .haw visited this coast.
Our class or visiiors will be the best
in the world. One man here says he
has sent five hundred persons to
Florida and some of them from here.
I am sure our Florida Society will
be always ready individually and
collectively to ; furnish information
about Florida and to correct any
fi-lse impression of it. But that is
not enough. The people of the state
need to be awakened to the impor importance
tance importance of having some kind of official
representation here with suitable
literature and some evidences, of its
advantages and resources. The leg legislature

The action of the city council in
reducing the rates for water and
electric current is one that will meet
the unanimous approval of the peo people

ble tangible proof of the benefits of municipal
ownership, which is what they have
been advocating and voting for, for
the last ten years.
The benefits of the reduction will
be felt at once in every household as
well as every business establishment
in Ocala, and the prospect that it
opens to not only saving in money,
but in work, is most pleasing to all,
particularly the housekeepers.
