The problem Is not so fierce. We
have a very good electric plant. It
is just barely able to do the work
required of it, and the demands on
it increase every day. In order to
enable it to make good for present
demands, and those of the near fu
ture, it needs about ten thousand
dollars worth of new machinery. This

weeks ago for a lot the city didn't
have to have, and we don't see any
reason why they can't raise $10,000
or even a little more to keep our
electric lights from going on the
blink. And they don't need to raise
rates, for that purpose, either. If a
private firm was furnishing the city
with electricity, and it found its
plant close to the point where it
couldn't supply the demand, it would
hustle in some new machinery. Of
course, it would raise rates if it had

The Star doesn't think there wras
anything improper in the council
asking for bids from' parties who de de-side

The trouble is that there is nobody
around here that is now in shape to
furnish it. The Camps have a big
hydro-electric plant on the Withla Withla-coochee
coochee Withla-coochee river, below Dunnellon, but
they definitely stated a few months
ago that all their power was con contracted
tracted contracted for for three years. This of
course puts them out of the question.
It is exceedingly probable that the
Camps have all they can do without
furnishing current to Ocala. They
are now furnishing current to not
only numerous phosphate plants, and
to Dunnellon, Inverness and Brooks Brooks-ville,
ville, Brooks-ville, but to many smaller towns.
They have, in fact, lit up the whole
Withlacoochee valley, furnishing cur current

not be able to have electricity but
for their big plant.

Taylor, who is perhaps better posted
on the subject than any man in

the city plant in reserve. That is
that the city will have to keep in
service all the time a high-priced
electrician and at least one compe
tent assistant, and that the plant will
have to be fired up and the machin
ery run for a few minutes every
week or ten days. If the plant Is al
lowed to stand without close and
skillful attention, it would soon be a
heap of junk. Its expense -while it
was standing idle would be not less
than $200 'a month.
Another thing is that if the sup
plying plant broke down, it, would
take from two hours to half a day
to fire up and couple up.
Another thing is, as the Star has
said before, if we shut our city plant
down now, and take current from a
private firm, and the business in increases
creases increases while the plant stands still,
no matter how well it Is kept, if it
was called on in a year, or two or
three years, It would be entirely in inadequate
adequate inadequate to do the work. In such
an emergency, two or three years
from now, half the city would have
to go without light and power.
If we depend on a hydro-electric
plant, sending current In over cables
from a long distance, accidents
would be very likely to happen. Any
severe storm would be liable to
break connections and leave the city
Hydro-electric plants are also
liable to be put out of business by
drouth. In North Georgia and the
Carolinas, summer before last, doz dozens
ens dozens of towns were paralyzed for
weeks by the shrinking of the
streams that furnished the power for
their electric currents, and many of
these plants have since put in steam
The Camps' big power plant is
immune from this danger. The bulk
of the water that supplies it comes
from Blue Spring, which like Silver
Springs, not only never fails, but Is
not affected much by drouth.
Above the mouth of Blue Springs
run, the Withlachoochee, tho a long
river, is a very small one. In times
of drouth, except for a few feet in
the middle, It can be waded. It runs
thru a comparatively flat country,
and before a power plant of any
consequence can be erected, a very
(extensive dam will have to be built.
(The Star thinks that our present
problem will have to be solved a
long time before this plant can be
In working order. And of course it
will be open to the same objection
that Is of such weight in the case of
any power supply out of town. The
current will have to come for a
number of miles thru cables that
can be broken In a minute and can't
be repaired in hours.
Mr. E. E. Robinson, chairman of
the finance committee, has promised
the Star a communication on the
subject, which we are awaiting with
a good deal of interest. He has
made an exhaustive study of the dif different
ferent different details, and we are quite sure
that he will supply information on
many points that the public is in the

knows that it doesn't want to be in

there, with many members of Dick Dick-ison

force of Martin Camp S. C. V. The

in evidence, and added to all was a
large band of children.

base of the monument, led the ex exercises,

mellow the music to those around

rendered a number of sacred pieces.
It was a scene to be remembered
this reverent group of men, women
and children on the greensward and
under the shade of the trees by the
stately building, while the faithful
soldier in granite stood as though
on guard over the glorious past and
the promising future.
iDr. Dodge made a brief address
with his usual direct and simple elo eloquence,
quence, eloquence, paying tribute to the noble
men and women who upheld the
cause of the South thru four terrible
years, and speaking of the example
they set for us to follow in honor

as in war.

AN UNTRUTHFUL, ASSERTION
The observance of Memorial Day
reminds the Star to remark that
Decoration Day, which is to the
north what Memorial Day is to us,
occurs on May 30. It has not been
observed of late in Ocala, for the lit
tle band of Union veterans, have
nearlj- all answered the last sum summons,
mons, summons, and the few survivors are al almost
most almost too feeble to make any efforts.
In our two cemeteries, however, are
the graves of several federal sol
diers, and the Star thinks it would
be a beautiful and graceful thing for
our people to seek them out and lay
flowers upon them on Saturday, May
30, in which work we have no doubt
they would be assisted by the many
people from the north now making
their homes here.
The first memorial day that the
writer can remember was in the city
of Augusta, Ga., whose beautiful
cemetery was filled with the graves
of those who died in the great war,
then over but a few years. The peo people
ple people turned out in thousands, and the
military display was given by long
lines of men, most of whom had
been tried on the battlefield. Our
little gathering here Sunday would
have fitted in any one corner of that
assemblage of nearly forty years ago.
The hearts of all present were
saddened with the memories of the
great contest that seemed but a day
removed, and the reverence and sor sorrow
row sorrow with which they laid their flow flowers
ers flowers on the graves and monuments
was very real and close at hand.
Over in one corner, of the ceme cemetery
tery cemetery were the graves of a number of
Union soldiers, most of whom died
in the hospitals in Augusta during
the war. And after their own dead
had been remembered, the women of
Augusta and the gray-clad veterans
went by hundreds to lay wreaths and
garlands on the graves of their for former
mer former foes. There were plenty and to
spare, and the last resting-place of
every northern soldier was almost
hidden from sight with southern

In trying to have South Fourth
street closed, the Atlantic Coast
Line and its friends assert that the
grade of" the street is so steep that
it can't be used. Anybody who goes
and looks at the street can see that
this assertion is the rankest sort of
a misstatement. If the street was
properly attended to, it would not
have any steeper grade than Exposi Exposition
tion Exposition street from the square to Lime
street. Even as it is, it is not as steep
as the next street north of Exposi Exposition,
tion, Exposition, from Frank's corner down to
the bottom of the hill. And it is no
steeper than scores of places on the
country roads. The railroad has an
embankment at ttye top of the hill
on South Fourth street, that makes
it look steeper than it is. South
Fourth street is a good street, and
the council has no business to let
the railroad steal it, especially as it
connects two important pieces of
city property, and will be more in
use than ever after it is opened thru
to the east of town. The railroad is
as hot after city property as it ever
was. It is only trying different tac tactics.
