OCALA NEEDS A BIG BOND ISSUE
The Star had an interview Friday
evening with Mr. Chas. W. Hunter,
president of the city council, in
which he spoke of the needs of
Ocala and its resources, and the
plans that the members of the coun council
cil council had for the Improvement of the
There are some Improvements
that Ocala must have and some that
it should have, and the only way to
obtain them in proper time and
Quantity is to issue bonds in suffi suffi-cient
cient suffi-cient amount to cover the expense.
The most necessary improvement,
as everyone knows, is an up-to-date
system of sewerage. The system,
aided by nature, which has tbeen in
use in Ocala up to this time, has
done fairly well, tout will not much
longer meet the needs of the grow growing
ing growing city, and beside it is contrary to
the law passed at the last meeting of
the legislature. The Star published
the law some weeks ago, and unless
it Is soon complied with the city will
have to put in a bucket system
very inconvenient and expensive.
There are no two ways about this
it will have to be done.
The next most important improve improvement
ment improvement is to consolidate the water and
electric plants, and while this is be being
ing being done it would be best to remove
them to the city property in the
northern part of town. The expen expenditure
diture expenditure of a reasonable sum of money
-would not only put up these plants
on a scale to meet their growing
business, but improve the property
so we would have a pretty and useful

water and electric plants will have
to be made soon the latter is hard hardly
ly hardly able to take care of the business
it now has, and new calls for cur current

The present electric plant is not
only worked to its full capacity,
with no margin for emergencies, but
it is badly situated. Every time
there is a heavy rain, it is threaten threatened

the past few years it has ibeen 'put

The streets are the next necessary
improvement, and we all know the
need in this regard. Only a few of
the most used streets are paved, and
others are hardened, but most of the

to visitors, and a certain agency to
-the development of the city.
The fourth improvement is the lot
and new city -buildings that there
lias been so much dispute over the
last few days. It is rather unfor unfortunate
tunate unfortunate the way this matter has been
introduced. Nevertheless, the lot is
an excellent piece of property, the
last. piece of unoccupied land left in
an eligible situation. The price has
been mistakenly withheld from the
public, but if it can be secured for
a reasonable amount now, the city
will make a good business deal to
buy it. We presume the city can
scrape up cash enough to purchase
it, but it cannot put up the necessary
buildings without bonds. Mr. Hun Hunter
ter Hunter informs the Star that the price
of this lot is $12,500.
The present city buildings are now
inadequate. They are too cramped,
and valuable records have no pro
tection other than the vigilance of
their custodians. While this im
provement is not as vitally necessary
as the others named, it is one that
Should be made If possible. The

one across the street, Which is one
of the best in town, and if orna ornamented

Ocala may be proud of for all time.
We understand .that the fifty-odd

purpose, not even for improvement,
and will have to be retired. This
is just as well, for the amount is not

way. anyway. v
The proper thing, in the Star's
opinion, to do will be for the mem members
bers members of the council and the Board of
Trade togget together and figure out
how much money is needed and then
start a campaign for bonds. As the
Star understands, at least $100,000
is needed for sewerage, as much for
streets, $75,000 for the light and
water plant and $50,000 for the new
city hall and fire station, jor about
A considerable amount can be
raised 'by selling -off the isolated
pieces of property now belonging to
the town. The Star is informed that
two business houses want the lot on
which the city hall and fire station
now stand. .The waterworks lot
should bring a good price and the
electric plant lot a fair one. It has
been proposed to sell the city mar market,
ket, market, and the Star thinks it should
be done if a good bargain could be
made. The Star thinks the little
outlying markets are all right, but
there should be a large, central place
where the country people could con congregate

town people go to meet and buy

The mayor may have an option

telling the public what the price of

price is $12,500. Now is anybody
fool enough to suppose that the may mayor

over $12,500 of the people's money
without their consent.
The Banner has given a great
