Suggestion Made to tlie City Council
Nearly a Year Since
Ocala, Fla., Feb. 26, 1913.
To the City Council of Ocala:
Gentlemen: Our city has been
steadily growing and is spreading
out in every direction. Many new
homes. have been built, number of
tracts of land has been subdivided
into city lots, a great many of them
have been sold and no doubt all of
them will be sold in the near future.
Houses will be built on these lots
,and will be occupied, and in my opin-
4ion the city should extend its limits
at least one-quarter of a mile in
every direction. It will not be long
until the demands will be made upon
the city council to extend the water
mains and electric lights in every
direction and it is not more than
right that these new additions
j should help bear at least a small per
cent, in the way of municipal tax to
defray these additional expenses.
They should bear in mind the many
conveniences they now have, church
es, schools and markets, and in case
of sickness doctors can be summoned
jto the homes in a very few minutes.
The city must have revenue to keep
up its utilities. We have a number
of non-residents that own city and
suburban property that have invest-
ed money for speculative purposes
only. They depend upon a few peo people
ple people to improve and build upon their
lots while their's lay idle and reap

day. today. This would solve the greatest
problem, cheap transportation, and
when this is assured, Ocala will no
doubt double her population 7 within
the next five years. In order to se secure
cure secure this a line of railroad should be
'built from the city's property near
Taylor's pond thru the center of the
half-mile strip to Silver Springs.
Free dockage at Silver Springs has
been promised by Mr. Carmichael.
This road no doubt, would suggest
that the city of Ocala increase the
power of the electric light plant to
such capacity to furnish power to
operate the cars on the proposed
railroad, and for lighting the city
and its general needs, also a surplus
for manufacturing enterprises that
would no doubt locate here. The
property owners of this proposed ex extension

There are a number of other
things that Ocala needs and one of
them is a new water plant, for which

fuel alone would amount to many
thousands of dollars and would go a
long way toward paying operating
expenses of the road. There are a
great many things in connection with
this proposition to be considered that
can be worked out later should my
suggestions meet with your approval.

St. Augustine, Feb. 4, 1914.
Secretary Ocala" Board of Trade:
Dear Sir: In reference to increas increased
ed increased express rate3 on perishable com commodities,
modities, commodities, Florida to northern points.
Rates quoted in comparison in my
letter of the 29th ult. apply from
what is termed the St. Augustine
block to points mentioned, and are
in effect now. There was no error
and no intention of misleading the
public. As to standard crates ship shipments
ments shipments from this block to New York,
our principal market, the following
comparison is submitted:
Commodity Weight Old R. New
Beans, lettuce 30 lb. ct. $ .80$ .90
Tomatoes beets. 40 lb. ct. 1.05 1.14
Citrus fruits... 40 1b. ct. 1.05 1.14
Citrus fruits. .80 lb. ct. 2.10 2.13
Cabbage 50 lb. ct. 1.05 1.39
Making a difference in the rate on
beans and lettuce of 10c; tomatoes
and beets, 9c; citrus fruits, 9c; cit citrus
rus citrus fruits, 9c, and cabbage, 34c
There are no reductions in these
rates, as you can plainly see, but an
ircrease sufficiently great to reduce
the profits of our growers a very dis disheartening
heartening disheartening degree.
As to reductions in Southern ter territory,
ritory, territory, can it be argued that Florida
will ever find her produce market in
the South? Is it not a fact that our
farmers are the competitors of other
Southern growers in the Northern
markets to which those increased
rates apply, and that our profits are
made during the few weeks that we
are able to ship ahead of other
Southern points? Our advantage
lies in our ability to get fancy prices
in the Northern markets for early
produce, and these increased rates
tax this advantage. Is the prospect
encouraging to our growers or those
whom we seek to develop our lands?
James O. Stevenson, Secretary,
State Chamber of Commerce.

to Forward Their Stuff
The shippers at Center Hill made
their shipments into carload lots yes yesterday

Both the flow of water per sec second

An automatic alarm will be put
on between the fire station and the
pumping station, so that the direct

The South has probably no greater ;
champion of its rights and equalities
j than Congressman Frank Clark, j
who is persistently striving to induce
the government to return the
money which was filched from them I
in the guise of a cotton tax.
The tax was imposed just after
the war between the states nad its
collection ceased upon the decision
of the supreme court to the effect
that it was unconstitutional.
It is a logical deduction that if a
continuation of its collection was il illegal,
legal, illegal, any phase of its collection was
equally illegal, and if as suggested
in the decision of the court, the act
was the taking of private property
without the sanction of law, its res restitution

All bitterness of that most regret regrettable
table regrettable cofiict has about been allayed,
and we find grand army posts all
over the country returning to the
Confederates the battle flags from
whom they were captured. This it is
true is but the act of private insti institutions,
tutions, institutions, yet these posts are setting
the government an example, and
quite recently the war department
returned similar flags. But more
than this the same war department
has returned to the heirs of the late
Jefferson Davis, president of the
Confederacy, side arms and personal
effects that once were his, upon the
ground that the United States had
no right to further keep them.
The cotton tax falls in the same
category and restitution is the only
honorable, just and legal course
open to the government.
Right is right since might was
might; and right the day will win.
To doubt would be disloyalty; to
falter would be sin. With this truth
ever before us it is justifiable to be believe
lieve believe that Congressman Clark will
succeed in his efforts, or that at least
the day is not far distant when the
government will be willing to restore
to the South that which is its own.

Kirk found himself waiting
witb growing impatience for
bis active duties to begin. Curiously
enough, this feeling was somehow con
nected with the thought of Edith her
self. Why this should be so he did not
trouble to inquire. They had become
the best of good friends, he told him
self, a consummation for which he had
devoutly wished, yet for some iudeti
nable reason he was dissatisfied.
He decided that he needed exercise
and determined to take a tramp
through the country, but on the even

excursion ins plans were upset ny a
note from Mrs. Cortlandt, which the
clerk handed .him. It ran:

The recipient of this kind invitation
tossed it aside, with a gesture of impa

euced a kind of loyish resentment at
having his intentions thwarted that
seemed out of proportion to the cause.
But the emotion soon passed.

upon the hotel porch. She was alone.
