Judge Clayton ruled that it was

court should have jurisdiction.
It was indicated, when the case
comes up for trial, the men will be

argument, not only for what he
writes but the man who writes it.
Mr. McConn is an old citizen and he
isn't a young man. He has a little
home in North Ocala a section that
hasn't received much benefit from the i
city, by the way he earns a living
by straight hard work, and pays
taxes, to city, state and county, watei
rent, electric current bills and every everything
thing everything else that goes to the support of
Ocala and Marion county. Not so
very much., but enough to make his
wallet jump like a Ford on the
Blitchton road every time pay day
comes around. And, by the way, he
pays ten times as much taxes as some
men who are the loudest protesters
against progress. When a man like
Mr. McConn is willing to pay his
share to keep something that is no
help to him, except in that it will be
a help to the city, the big men who
claim to be looking ahead had better
study the matter for at least a few
minutes from his point of view.

would be improved.
