MR. E. L. CARNEY
(Reprinted by our Own Request)
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
I airflnna ariA oclrlnrv onr Ano sv foil at
his offi:e as to figures, if not satisfied
with his statement, I am availing my
self 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.
Did you first go to Mr. Brumby's
office, Mr. Carney, and give him an
opportunity to explain? Evidently
you didn't. Editor.
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.
You shouldn't say "carte blanche
us crackers would understand you bet
ter if you would say, "go the limit."
It's evident that the council hasn't
carted the blanche with Mr. Brumby,
but only given him a wheelbarrow
full, for they meet twice a month to
check him up. Editor.
This sentiment is fine, thought I,
if carried out, but how many citizens
along Gilawaha 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
tion, dug away our good eurbing, 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
utility and at the same time pay an
exorbitant price for being bled?
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

meeting being held by the residents
along Oklawaha. Mr. Brumby says
the only complaints made to him dur
mg the reconstruction of the street
were by Messrs. Robertson and Clem
ent and Mrs. Carney. From all the
reports we hear, a large majority of
the people along the street are quite
proud of it, and well pleased. It is
also a pleasure and a pride to the en
tire town. That "good lime" Mr. Car
ney speaks of was so mixed with
rocks and. sand that it was no good
except to dump into holes in other
streets, to which purpose it was most
ly applied. We don't know what "for
mer city engineer" Mr. Carney re
f ers to, but the consensus of Ocala
voters about fifty-three weeks ago
was that previous councils had gotten
the streets of the city into a fellofa
hix. The reason this foundation had
to be dug down is it was entirely too
high to put block paving on and had
it been used the paving in most places
would have been above the curb. Mr.
Carney does not know that the city's
consulting engineer had the street
planned two feet to five feet nar
rower than it now is, and also ordered
it cut down eighteen inches lower than
it is in front of Mr. Carney's place
If Mr. Brumby had followed the en engineer's
gineer's engineer's grade Mr. Carney would need
a step-ladder to get on his sidewalk
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 fact, the negroes told me they did
not know what to do or what was ex
pected of them. Carney.
Mr. Carney's experience is different
from ours. When the street gang
was laying brick on North Main
street, we used to go out and look at
the men, just for the pure joy of see
ing other people work. When the
force went up on Oklawaha, they were
scattered around, and it would have
been neither necessary nor economical
to have a white boss over each little
bunch. Mr. Carney seems to forget
how the pay roll would stack up if
every squad of $1.50 a day negroes
had a $40 a week white boss over
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 before
fore before 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 seeking
ing seeking 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
e bricked in Florida when very, very
evel! The sand basis may be better,
for soft brick, but what of the con conditions
ditions conditions five years hence? This sand
basis for brick streets has been test
ed over and over again for fifty years
in Florida and exploded. Carney.
The Dixie Highway, Mr. Carney,
will not be paved with brick, and that
makes all the difference in the world.
We have a number of good streets in
this town, Fort King avenue. Main
from Fort King to Washington, Mag
nolia from Fort King to the union
station plaza, Broadway from Os
ceola to Lime, Oklawaha from Osceola
tc Magnolia, all of which are brick
aid on sand ten years ago, and seem-
ngly as good as new. As for this
question, "how about five years from
now," we can only say we will be
durned if we know. We hope vou and
us, Mr. Carney, will be walking on
golden streets by that time. We see
where Hillsborough county has let a
contract for asphalt block laid on the
natural sand and only 15 feet wide.
They may need Mr. Carney's advice
and a foot foundation. This paving in
Hillsborough county is almost the
same amount as Oklawaha avenue
with no base and no engineering. One
Florida city paid to a contractor $4.50
per yard for asphalt block on a sand
base this year. There is a lot of dif difference

saved to the city was not enough, how
much does Mr. Carney expect on one
street? The asphalt block and curb
alone cost $2 per yard. Does he ex expect

Most of our citizens suppose that
the certificate bond business has an
end or limit, but not so, only at the
sweet will of our city council. The
statutes oi iyiv provided for our
present city charter and this charter
does not require that all city bonds
shall first be submitted to and voted

legalized, as we have heretofore been
led to believe. But that bonds can

Mr. Carney, put their governments

The old council would have carried

short time before their retirement.
You might be satisfied, Mr. Carney,

AND SAND FILLED
Editor Sentinel: We have been
asked which type of brick road we
consider advisable for Orange county
tc build. Our answer is emphatically
"a brick laid on sand and sand filled."
Naturally, you must think we have
fairly good reasons for this opinion,
and we have, and here they are:
In the first place Orange county has
a soil in the main admirably suited
to a sand laid brick road; this state
ment has been made by prominent
engineers in Orange county, so wo
are not alone in this opinion. In the
second place, it is a well known and
admitted fact, by competent engi
neers, that where it is possible to
confine sand, there is no material
which makes a firmer foundation.
Ocean beaches, for instance.
The Angebilt hotel, the Yowell Yowell-Drew
Drew Yowell-Drew building, the Dickson-Ives build
ing in fact, all the large buildings in.
Orlando are built upon sand founda foundations;
tions; foundations; concrete on sand, of course.
In the third place, where a sand
sub-grade for a road is properly
curbed, properly water-bound, prop properly
erly properly rolled and surfaced with brick
and then sand filled, except where
weak spots occur in the gub-grade, and
these weak spots will show up in any
kind of road, you will have a road
which for ten years will require less
cost in maintenance than any other
type of road you can build. One Ford
truck and two men and a few shovels'
will be able to keep up the road to the
east coast for the next eight or ten
years and at a cost not to exceed $125
per mile per year; this would mean
an annual outlay for maintenance on
the twenty-six miles to the east coast
of $3250 per year, or $32,500 for ten j
years; while for a penetration road, j

TAMPA TRIBUNE POPULAR
Every month shows an increase in
the number of Florida people who
are becoming steady readers of the
Tampa Morning Tribune. People who
have been reading the Tribune for
the past twenty-eight years say there
is something about the paper that
"takes" and "holds," and that it soon
becomes just as essential as their
meals. These same people say they
can depend on every scrap of news
of any interest anywhere showing up
FIRST in the Tribune. Our corps of
Florida correspondents and the full
night and day service of the Asso
ciated Press takes care of that. The
Tribune is by far the most widely
read newspaper in South Florida and
is the representative paper of the
state. Daily and Sunday rates: Year Year-ly$8.00,
