We wonder how far the general

grave economic changes in power pro production

the last few years. Undoubtedly it
feels them, and engineers have come
to grasp them fully. Yet, in jspite of
all this, there "are hundreds, yes thou thousands,'
sands,' thousands,' of isolated plants operated at
what must really be serious loss to
their owners. With cheap labor and
cheap coal the difference between the
cost of power purchased and power
generated may be comparatively
small. As coal and labor go up the
operating costs of a plant with a
poor load factor, rise at an appalling
rate,' and even when the load factor is
fairly good the difference in economy

Mr. N. A. Fort, House of Represen

My dear Sir: As you have often

T refused to siim any requests that
the legislature appropriate any mon money

or, indeed, even to determine the
merits of the appropriation asked,
independently of the question of the
present ability of the state to meet
such requests: For these reasons you
won't find my name on the petitions.
It is hardly necessary to ten you
mtf V1PWK about eood roads, as differ
ent phases of this question have so
often been discussed Detween us, uuw
as so many matters are requiting
your attention I deem it proper to
say, first: there are no adequate laws
for the punishment of anyone who
may destroy the paved roads of the
state. In proof of this, I don't believe
anyone (outside of the municipali municipalities)
ties) municipalities) has ever been convicted for
damage to a public road in any part
of the state, and if so, he was cer certainly
tainly certainly not represented by an attorney.
Anyone who does any damage of any
character to a public road should be
subject to immediate arrest by the
sheriff, it matters not how small the
damage may be leave that question
to the good sense of the sheriff. If
you undertake to define the character
cf the injury or the character of the
vehicle some one will find new means
to ruin the public roads. This crim criminal
inal criminal law, however, might provide an
exception in favor of those persons
employing the particular vehicle in
the manner and over the particular
road as might be specified in a license
to be issued pursuant to resolution of
the board of county commissioners,
such license not to cost exceeding
$250 and in no circumstances to run
beyond the term of one year. Second,
you well understand that the method
of condemning a right-of-way for a
public road at the instance of the
county commissioners is too cumber cumbersome,
some, cumbersome, too expensive, and there are
entirely too- many formalities con connected
nected connected with the validity of such pro proceedings,
ceedings, proceedings, useless notices to be given,
and indeed the commissioners have
little or no authority, as they are re restricted

them and 'the reports of the viewers.
These provisions make it wholly im impractical

with any dispatch except where all
the citizens co-operate. All that for formality

the directors of a railroad corpora corporation

It is idle to talk about building

in view it is obvious that the method

ly be said that all of the citizens ot
Lake county would get twice as much

Sumter and Marion expended a like

and commerce are not limited by
county boundaries. The value of the x

Presuming that the investment of
Lake county in good roads is a pro profitable

through the construction of a

amounts in good roads where their
neighboring counties have not done
so. By placing these matters in the
hands of a state board with abundant
powers and providing for allowance
for fair credits to counties for the
value of roads constructed, or a fair
adjustment with reference to those
maters, which would give such coun counties

could be equalized, but for obvious
reasons already mentioned, this
should be done by a state board, and
as the roads should be constructed in
a very substantial way, bonds should
be issued for doing this work, as it

correspondent of the Tampa Times in
a letter to his pape Friday. It was
only reasonable to suppose that he

some people up that way. We are
not disposed to take up the cudgels
for Superintendent McClane just be because
cause because he is from Ocala. But it is not
out of place to say that we have heard
on good authority that he has made
considerable improvement since going
there. He admits himself that there
is much yet to do. When he reached
Marianna, he had to undo a great
deal that was bad before he could be begin
gin begin on what was good. We must also
say that the allegation of Mrs. Tay Taylor
lor Taylor and Mrs. Nicholls, that Mrs. Mc
Clane made their positions miserable,
do not agree with the impression Mrs.
McClane made on her friends during
the years she lived in- Ocala. She was
considered here as a gentle and re
fined lady, and none of us who know
her can imagine her trying to make
anyone miserable. Appointing one's
own relatives to office is something
the American people do not approve
of in any public official. There are
exceptions, of course. Gov. Catts ap
pointed his daughter his private sec
retary and it is the consensus of pub
lie opinion that it was the best ap appointment

may have appointed some of his rela
tives to places in the school because
be believed he could obtain better
work and closer co-operation than
from other people. Judging by the
record they made, the officials of the
school before he went there were not
anything to brag of. All this, and
other matters, should be carefully in
vestigated and judged by the legisla
ture. An industrial school for way
ward boys is an imperative necessity.'

The state federation of labor, which

central time. These working men
cannot see how daylight is saved by
a plan that makes every man who

Tampa, Tallahassee and other cities
in the west part of the state will try
to have the line run through Live
Oak and Sanford, railroad division
points, instead of at the Apalachicola
river, as it now does. Ocala seems
well satisfied with eastern time, but
there would not be much kicking if it
was put back on central.
