cordially introduced Dr. Byrd as the

a member of the State Board of
Health had visited our club on several
previous occasions and was very
pleasantly remembered. Dr. Byrd

presence at the club. She first brought
us a message from Miss Skinner, the
state president, regarding the legisla legislative

Ever since we have been in Ocala,
and that is over thirty years, the peo people,

squabbling over some public issue or

almost thirty years in other communi communities.

build each others houses, cleared and
fenced each others fields, cut roads
thru the forest, built bridges and
finally all got together to erect the
little structure that for years was
church, schoolhouse and community
meeting place. They were fine men,
there were no thieves nor cowards
among them. But the women, tho as
hard workers as the men, and always
ready to help any one in need, real
angels of mercy when sickness or
death came to a neighbor's household,
gossipped about each other, made each
other's men folk cold friends if not
enemies, caused several quarrels, a
few fights and broke up a home or
two. We abode among them several
months, they were all good to us, and
as we were a lone boy out there in the
forest with them we made friends
with all, and yet hold that friendship
with those who have not passed across
the dark river. We became wise to all
their differences, some of which sad
dened and some amused us. We have
heard occasionally from that settle-7
ment, which is now a pretty, pleasant
and prosperous village, and we are
told the characteristics of the people
have not changed, tho' so many have
died or removed and so many come in

We have lived in a town that had a
governor and council, a fort with the
flag of a proud nation flying over it,
and streets of neat houses around the
fort, and wide, well tilled fields around
the town, many years before there
was a house in the great city of
Jacksonville, but when we lived in it
it had dwindled to a little village, and
had a feud, the people of the north
side of the town pulling against the
people of the south side, and vice
versa. We went to it a stranger, we
made friends on both sides, and may
be we induced a few who had been
enemies to be friends, and then we
went somewhere else. And now that
town is the most lively in proportion
to its size in the state, and has forgot
ten its old feud and had several new
ones, but it has learned to pull to together

men who are barely courteous, or al
most too courteous when they meet on

Many times since we have been in
Ocala have we heard people deplore
the lack of harmony among our peo

seen them go out and create a little

As aforesaid, ever since we have
been in Ocala, the city has not been
doped with peace, and it certainly has
progressed. About a year ago we
wrote a spiel, which tho lone and
tiresome proved the progress of the
city, and it has greatly improved in
twelve months. Ocala has improved
at least 100 per cent in thirty years.
We had been in Ocala several years
before we took much notice of its
municipal contentions. The first we
car. definitely remember was buying
the electric plant, and this was so
obviously to the advantage of the city
that there was not much of a squabble
about it. Things rocked alone a few
years then the progressives wanted
the public square and some of the
streets paved. They won and so far
as we can remember they treated the
minority with much less consideration
than our present council is treating
its victims today. Thencame up the
matter of the water works. It was al
most as much to the interest of the
city to buy. the waterworks as it had
been to buy the electric light plant,
but we had a grand row over it, finally
making the purchase. Next we put
in some sewers, but the state made us
do that. We also bonded and built a
light and water plant, and the row
we had over that would entirely ob
literate today's dispute if they were
set down alongside each other.
About the time this fuss had more
or less come to an end, or at least an
intermission, another war broke out
about the charter. This charter may
be one fierce instrument, but at any
rate it went thru all the legal motions
and was put in partial operation. That
it was not put in full operation was
owing to a majority of the city coun council,
cil, council, who ignored the charter and ran
the government to suit themselves.
They might have run it better and
they .might have run it great deal
worse, but however that was when
they came up for re-election the peo people
ple people ran a whole trainfull of loaded
freight cars over their political aspirations.
There were two features in the
policy of the newly elected council
One was to appoint a really, truly
city manager; the other to build or
rebuild some streets. The council be
gan acting very much as a unit, the
holdover members joining in almost
everything with the new majority,
There was some delay and discussion
about appointing a manager. The
Star had hoped and expected that a
longtime citizen, a man who had been
in charge of a city department and
had in that time done a great deal of
gcod work, would be given the office,
and recommended him to the council-
men individually. The councilmen
believed that a man from the outside
would fret along better. As the Star
had voted for the new councilmen with
the full intention of supporting them
in the great principle of representa
tive government, it did not dispute
The council appointed Mr. J. R,
Brumby Jr. of Marietta, Ga., city
manager. He met some opposition
from the first, but has worked in har.
mony with the mayor and council and
with most of the people. We have no
doubt that if the matter was left to
the popular vote today that he would
be retained in office.
The Star believes that the dissatis dissatisfaction
faction dissatisfaction expressed is confined to com comparatively
paratively comparatively few people. It knows the
general public is well served, and it
has not heard complaint from the
mass of the people. The Star had not
intended to say anything about the
dispute. The Star, as the people well
know, is not slow to expose rotten rottenness,
ness, rottenness, but it doesn't pay the town, jior
the Star, to print peevishness. How However,
ever, However, the ridiculous action of the
grand jury the other day, and Brother
Carney's letter, makes it necessary to
put matters in a proper light to out outsiders

. One would judge by the criticisms
against them that the aldermen were
a bunch of idlers, tyrants and graft-
ers and the city manager an expensive
ornament. The aldermen meet in reg regular

It is probably the most harmonious

works in harmony with the city man manager.
ager. manager. When it comes to high taxes,
the aldermen are not trying to stand
from under. E. H. Martin, president
of the council, who was a poorly paid
school teacher twenty years ago, and!
isn't rich now, has a modest home on
the corner of Lake Weir avenue and
Eighth street, and will have to pay
assessments on both streets. His
assessment on Lake Weir avenue is
$285. Dr. Henry lives on Oklawaha
avenue, and his assessment is $381.54.
Mayor Peek lives on Oklawaha and
has been one of the most insistent ad advocates
vocates advocates of its improvement, which
will cost him $638.67. Alderman Ped-
rick is a member of the firm of Spen Spencer
cer Spencer and Pedrick, which has a garage
on Oklawaha. This firm helped the
city of Ocala by erecting a big build building
ing building on a very unsightly piece of
ground, and at the same time filling
a dangerous place. It has a frontage
of 166 feet and will pay $683.43. Al Alderman
derman Alderman Goldman pays $315 on an another
other another street. Alderman Simmons lives
on a street corner that has not been
paved, but he will get his and get it
heavy, when that time comes. The
people of Ocala hardly need to be told
that Oklawaha avenue is used by ev everybody
erybody everybody in town, and every taxpayer
in town helps to pay for it. The big
fill across what was once a spring
branch on Oklawaha avenue was not
made to benefit the Spencer-Pedrick
Company nor to spite Ed. Clement. It
was made to help make a good street
for the use of the people of the whole
town. Mrs. Emily Green has more
taxes to pay than any other property
owner on Oklawaha. Her assessment
is $1910.87, and she is not making
any complaint about it. All she wants
is good work and a good street in
front of her property. We might call
attention to Fred McAteer, who lives
on one of the lately improved streets
in a modest home that has a dispro
portionate amount of frontage. Fred
isn't rich, and every dollar he pos
sesses has been made by hard, hard
work. His assessment is $1290, which
he has paid in cash and made no com
Our old friend, Mr. Carney, is not
so much to be blamed for feeling
peevish and worried. His assessment
is heavy. It is $1293.18 a big dose
But it is not the fault of the people
of Ocala or the council or the city
manager that Mr. Carney owns one of
the best located pieces of residence
property in town. He bought it of
his own free will. Also, he is not the
only taxpayer on that street, and
other men are taxed more heavily
We have ridden up and down Okla
waha avenue many times in the last
week or two, accompanied by several
of our own citizens and some from
abroad, and they all agree that it is a
superb street and one our people may
well be proud of. We don't think
that anybody's property is hurt ex
cept that of Mr. Clement. We think
the city should fill in the ground and
raise his house, or buy his property
if he will accept a reasonable amount
We regard the city manager as an
honest and competent man, and one
who does a great deal of work that
few of our citiens know all about. He
isn't good at advertising himself.
It is only the other day we learned
that Mr. Brumby has devoted many
weeks to the most necessary and at
the same time the most disagreeable
work in Ocala cleaning out the sep septic
tic septic tank. This tank has been neglect
ed for years. It had fifteen feet of
slush in it, whereas it should never
have more than eighteen inches. The
stench around it was fearful, and was
carried by the wind into houses nearly
half a mile away. Mr. Brumby has
personally directed this work, remain
ing several hours every day in the
heat and stench and clouds of mosqui
tees in that disagreeable spot. It
would not have been much longer be
fore the tank would have overflowed
and spread disease over the whole
city. Mr. Brumby, during most o:
his time since taking office, has been
attending to matters that previous
city officers have neglected. He
doing good work. We can't get
city manager who will not be criticis
ed and abused, so let us stand by the
one we have, who has proved that he
is willing to do the most disagreeable
work in order to make good.
It is the same way with the mayor
and council. They have set them
selves to work to lift Ocala out of th
run to make it an uptodate city
and they can't do it if they try to
humor everybody, or a minority, or
even sometimes a majority. We have
laid our hand to the plow let's not
look back. Let's go ahead, even if
we do make a mistake and have to do
the work over sometimes. We can't
get anywhere, if we stand and chew
the rag as we did for years before
