MR. E. L. CARNEY
To the Citizens of Ocala: Seeing
the statement of Mr. Brumby, our city
manager, in the Star of a few issues
back, of the work done on Oklawaha
avenue and asking any one to call at
his office as to figures, if not satisfied
with his statement, I am availing my myself
self myself of this notice to have my say.
I am one who is not satisfied with
work as done on this street under Mr.
Brumby's direction or non-direction.
Mr. Brumby on entering on his
duties as city manager had given to
him a carte blanche commission by
our city council and he has not been
slow in exercising all powers his
commissioners have given him. He
stated to me when we first met that
the city had given him such powers,
but said "I wish the citizens of Ocala
to understand that I am not their
boss, but their servant."
This sentiment is fine, thought I,
if carried out, but how many citizens
along Oklawaha avenue have ever
been consulted or if consulted heeded
as to matters of the street ? He, under
protest from most of the citizens of
Oklawaha avenue, tore up, dug down
and hauled off our good lime founda foundation,
tion, foundation, dug away our good curbing, put
down under the direction of a former
city engineer and narrowed our street
about three feet. Why should I be
satisfied with this mutilation of our
street, destruction of its beauty and
rtility and at the same time pay an
exorbitant price for being bled? I
consider Mr. Brumby's management
of our city affairs up to date is the
most costly experiment the city has
ever had. Of all the- badly managed
propositions, either of a private or
public nature, that I have ever known,
I think Oklawaha avenue is the
Thousands of dollars have been
thrown away needlessly from the
very beginning of the work on the
east end of the street. A large squad
of negroes has been employed on this
street day in and out for weeks, with
out a visible white boss most of the
time, in the usual negro kill time way.
In factf the negroes told me they did
not know what to do or what was ex
pected of them.
The city has been twenty-five years
in making an ideal foundation for a
permanent macadam or paved street
and here comes along our new thought
man, who tears up this foundation at
a cost of thousands of dollars to our
taxpayers and has laid brick upon a
freshly made shallow bed.
Our Dixie Highway people, suppos supposed
ed supposed to be technically trained men, de demand,
mand, demand, so I learn, that 12 inches of
lime be put down as a foundation on
their road and this 12 inches of lime
rolled down to eight inches thick be
fore surfacing begins. Our Oklawaha
avenue had from eight to twenty in inches
ches inches of lime thoroughly packed and
just what the Dixie people are seek
ing to do. Yet our new manager
hauls off all of this lime foundation.
Why? It has been suggested to level
the street. You know streets can only
be bricked in Florida when very, very
level! The sand basis may be better,
for soft brick, but what of the con
ditions five years hence? This sand
basis for brick streets has been test
ed over and over again for fifty years
in Florida and exploded.
Most of our citizens suppose that
the certificate bond busines has an
end or limit, but not so, only at the
sweet will of our city council. The
statutes of iyi7 provided for our
present city charter and this charter
does not require that all city bonds
shall first be submitted to and voted
upon by our citizens before being
legalized, as we have heretofore been
led to believe. But that bonds can
be issued at any time and in any
quantity up to 20 per cent, of city
assessed valuation backed by certifi
cates (as collateral) issued against
abutting properties worked by city.
The majority of our present city
council was elected with the expec expectation
tation expectation that the council would be con
servative and economical and now we
find our taxes have gone up one-third
higher for 1922, and I learn expen expenditures
ditures expenditures have reached the legal limits,
if not gone beyond. It seems that our
charter grants all powers of city
management to the heads under five
hats with the privilege of sub letting
most of the powers to a manager. Is
there any remedy for this condition
of affairs? It is true that our char charter
ter charter provides for a recall but the con conditions
ditions conditions of this clause in the charter
can avail us nothing at this time. The
majority of our recent former council

Not on account of what they had done
or left undone, but the citizens were
afraid of what they might do and
Oklawaha avenue was one of the big
issues in this fight. We were afraid
that we would be mashed by the
thumb pressure of that council and
here we are almost mashed to death
by the foot of an elephant.
Had our former council been re
elected I am satisfied that the city
of Ocala would have saved thousands
of dollars of useless expenditures.
The old council would have carried
out the instructions given them to
asphalt certain streets, etc., under
certain stipulated conditions as voted
upon in the $50,000 bond issue, a

To the Honorable W. S. Bullock, Judge
of the Fifth Judicial Circuit of the
State of Florida:

the county of Marion, having complet completed

We find considerable complaint
against Justice of the Peace D. S. Cro Cro-martie,

we learn that he undertook to try a
young man named Chester Strickland
on a charge of obtaining goods under
false pretenses; we find that he actu actually
ally actually imposed a sentence of three
months in the county jail, all of which
was illegal, without authority. We
ask that the governor investigate thi3
matter and remove him from office.
We have investigated the matter of
the administration of the city of
Ocala, and find that in many instances
bills are paid on the approval of the
city manager, and without being first
approved by the city council in open
session. That is irregular and we
condemn the practice. We have also
investigated the matter of certain
rumors about the irregularities of
paving contracts and the work done
on the streets by the city. We find
that the city has a regular employed
consulting engineer, but that such en engineer

any attention to the work. We are of

We find that for some time the
white prisoners who were tried, con convicted

county jail have not been put to hard
labor, but on the other hand, have
been cared for at the county jail,. We
condemn this action and can see no
excuse why the county commission commissioners
ers commissioners have permitted this waste,, and
rank injustice; we therefore demand
that they be put to work at once, and
in the event they are not, the matter
be reported to the governor.
We have examined the county jail
and the records kept by the jailor.
We find some parts of the jail filthy
and unsanitary, but apparently no
prisoners occupy that part found in
such condition. We recommend that
the jail be thoroughly cleaned, all
trash and rubbish removed. We are
of the opinion that some of the metal
work is rusting and has been rendered
practically worthless for the lack of
paint, we therefore recommend, that
the county commissioners see that
the jail is thoroughly painted as often
as is necessary to properly preserve
same. We find that the broken win window
dow window lights have been replaced and
iron bars have been placed across the
windows in the attic, and some of the
steel work has recently been painted,
all of which we heartily commend. We
also find that all prisoners are well
cared and provided for. Apparently
the jailor is in need of a stove, and
we recommend that the county com commissioners

We find that the records kept by the
jailor are incomplete, and recommend
that the register, show all the infor

and various county offices. We are in informed

are also of the opinion that the county
judge should have more space for his
court room. We find that the tax
collector's office needs some window
shades. That the plastering in the
grand jury room should be replaced,
and that the tax assessor's office
should have a coat of light paint. We
find that there is no public toilet for
the white people, and recommend
that some provision be made to take
care of this situation. We find that
the toilet in the basement is unsani
tary and that both white and colored
races are forced by necessity to use
same. We find the various county
offices neat and well kept, the officials
courteous and obliging.
