LIGHT OPPOSES A BOND ISSUE
Reddick, Fla., Aug,
To the Editor, Ocala Star:
Here are my reasons why I will
both, work and vote against the pro proposed
posed proposed $900,000 bond issue :i
1. It will cost the tax, payer too
much for the benefits received.
2. We can get as good or better re
sults for one-half the cost.
3. It will take a large amount of
cash out ; of the county which could
and should remain in the county.
4. The taxable .wealth of the coun
ty is liable to decrease instead of in increasing
creasing increasing in the future unless new
wealth producing means are introduc introduced,
ed, introduced, therefore, taxes may be greatly
ncreased. ; j
5. The increase of population in
the county does not correspond with
the increase of taxes.
6. The big question: How can we
produce more cash to pay our taxes,
ive better, prove to the home-seek
ers coming to Florida that our, in incomes
comes incomes are large, our taxes light, and
that it will pay them to come and live
Here are my reasons:
1. The total cost (if all accounts
are met when due) for the $900,000
bond issue will be $1,782,850 for
roads, (see Mr. Cam's, and other fig
ures), to improve 146 miles of our
hard roads and build 58 miles of new
roads. It will cost on an average,
$7935 peri mileand not one cent for
the upkeep of the ney roads.
I am quoting from the civil engi
neer's report: "The cost of building
new road (lime) between Ocala and
Mcintosh was 12 Vz cents per lineal
foot, or $640 per mile. The cost of
the Lowell and Flemington road was
11.4 cents per foot, or $583.28 per
mile (lime and clay). Ocala and
Leesburg road, 8.6 cents -per lineal
oot, or $439.20 per mile. The Ocala
and Dunnellon road, 13.3 cents per lin
eal foot, or $696.30 "per mile. The
Ocala and Sharp's Ferry road, $868
The proposed bond issue proposes
to consume $7935 per mile on an av average,
erage, average, on principal and interest alone.
Or ", we can build twelve miles of lime
road like the road from Howell's,
north, (Mcintosh and Ocala road), for
the same cost to build one mile of the
proposed new road. We can build
nearly fourteen miles of road, on Low
ell and Flemington road, to one mile
of the proposed new road; or eigh eighteen
teen eighteen miles of the Ocala and Leesburg
road; or eleven miles of the Dunnel-
on road; or twenty-one miles of the
Ocala and Sharp's Ferry road.
2. It will take out of the county
cash that should remain here. The
average interest n bill will be about
$30,000 per year, or $900,000; the prin
cipal about $30,000 per year, or $900,-
000, totaling $1,800,000. This means
taking $5000 per month of cash from
our tax payers for the next thirty
years never to return. We can spend
annually $100 per mile on about 100
miles of our roads, $200 per mile an
nually on about 100 miles, or $30,000
per year, which will answer our pur purposes
poses purposes and keep this money in circula
tion in our own county, at one-half
the cost of the" proposed new roads
I honestly believe that It will be
better to spend $30,000 per year on our
present hard roads than to send $60,
000 per year out of the county, as the
proposed bond Issue will do.
3. The taxable assets are liable to
decrease Instead of increase,
The best asset we had ten years
ago, was on lumber and turpentine in
terests. Our vegetable interests and
the turpentine and lumber wealth of
the county is about gone. The vege
table business In this county is hard
ly one-tenth of what it was ten years
ago, and unelss we develop profit-pro
ducing interests corresponding te the
lumber and turpentine interests and
the vegetable business, which we are
losing and our taxes will be no less
some of us will be compelled to pay
more taxes, especially so if we add
an interest bill of an average of $30,
000 per year and a principal bill o:
$30,000 per year.
4. As to population and taxes: The
1915 census report says the increase
of population in this state during the
last ten years was 49.9 per cent., ana
the increase in Marion county but

FAVORS A BOND ISS UE
The Ocala precinct meeting held
last night in one of the rooms of the
Commercial Club, for the purpose of
selecting delegates to the convention
here Monday to discuss bonds, had a
small attendance, probably due to the
rain. The meeting seemed to be in
favor of bonds. There was no ex expression
pression expression of .opposition to the proposed
bond issue. Twelve delegates to the
convention were named, and were not
instructed. These delegates wiirmeet
this afternoon at the Commercial
Club at 3 o'clock.
T. T. .Munroe was chosen chairman
of the meeting and Louis H. Chazal
secretary. It was agreed that a
committee of three, consisting of W.
D. Cam, LV W. Duval and J. J. Gerig,
be appointed by the chair to name the
twelve delegates. The twelve select selected,
ed, selected, and approved by the meeting, are:
T. T. Munroe, W. D. Carn, D. S.
Welch, Louis H. Chazal, D. E. Mclver,
ohn L. Fdwards, W. T. Gary, E.M.
Osborne, R. R. Carroll, F. E. Harris,
A. C. Cobb and J. D. Rooney.
In a short talk in favor of good
roads and bonds, Mr. Rooney said
hat upon visits to the sections he had
bund the -people of Fairfield favor
able to bonds for permanent roads,
and he found the voters around Elec-
tra were rather against bonds, but
would probably vote for them on a
sound business basis.

Now, as to taxes: Mr. Carney's re
port to the state comptroller in 1903
says that Marion county taxes includ including
ing including public schools ,and sub-schools
and state and county taxes, was $92,-
821 Mr. Colbert's books show that
our taxes for the same purposes in
1915 were $231,851.33; or, we paid
$149,871 more taxes in 1915 than ten
years before, or 162 per cent, increase
n, taxes to 6.7 per cent increase in
population or, our : taxes increased
more than twenty times as fast as
Is tt wise, under these conditions,
to vote $1,800,000 additional taxes?
5. Our road expense In 1909 was
$22,805.20; In 1910, it was $26,450j in
twelve months in 1913 and 1914, it
was $49,367.30; in six months in 1915
and 1916 it was $14,637.05.
Now, the proposition is to spend an
nually $30,000 on an average for in
terest, $30,000 for principal and about
$20,000 for general roads. Total, $80,-
000 a year, and at the same time make
th burden no heavier for the tax
payer than it has been!
HOW CAN IT BE DONE?
The most important question to me
is, how can we make our businesses
more profitable? How can we bring
more cash into the county? How .can
we live better?
It Is not $7958 per mile in hard
roads that we need most, we need a
packing plant in Ocala, a peanut oil
mill in Ocala, someone to buy our suj
plus hay, corn, hogs, cattle, and the
products of our farms.
Solve this question first, then build
new roads next.

Leon's baggage was brought to the

There lies before us a copy of the

of the contest in the Florida legisla

Hocker, Burford and Palmer. The
contest had been going on for weeks,

which tells of the departure of the

later the same company under the

There were 45 men from Ocala in the

Everybody remembers the ridicul ridiculous
ous ridiculous A. B. C. conference at Niagara
Falls over two years ago, when a
bunch of delegates from the United
States, Argentine, Brazil and Chili
and -two of the Mexican factions, met
and handed out yards of useless talk
for two or three weeks, and finally
adjourned without doing anything of
the slightest use, although the pro proceedings
ceedings proceedings cost the United States a
hundred thousand dollars or more. It
seems like the farce is to be repeated
at Old Point Comfort, A sbury Park
or some other summer resort in a few
days, when the commissioners from
the United States and Mexico will
meet to have a pow wow over mat matters

The question to be decided at the
meeting to be held at the courthouse
Monday morning, iswhether or not to
call for an election to decide on an
issue of bonds for better roads for
Marion county. v-
The Star has no idea at' this time
what decision the meeting will come
to. We have heard of delegates be
ing chosen in several precincts, and
we presume that others will be rep
resented. We are informed that
Martel and Anthony are against
bonds; that Dunnellon, Lowell and
Fairfield are for them ; but we have
not received official intimation from
these or any others.
The first thing to decide will be, of
course, whether to ask for an election
or not. If the question is decided in
the negative, that will end it for this
year. It will not end it for any long
time, for we know all our people want
good roads, and we believe that most
of them are willing to bond for them.
But a majority may prefer to wait a
year or two, or even longer. In case
even a large minority desires to wait,
it would be best to accede : to its
wishes. There is no sort of an elec
tion in which the cheerful approval
of a large majority is so ; necessary
as in a bond election. We would pre
fer to see bonds beaten to seeing
them win by a small margin, because
you can't very well carry on any pub
lic. improvement if a large proportion
of the people feel that they are be
ing unjustly taxed for it. Therefore,
we do not think it would be wise for
the meeting Monday to favor an elec election
tion election unless it is the belief of its mem
bers that a good majority, at least
three in five, will vote for bonds. ;
We hope the meeting will consider
carefully and decide wisely. We should
hot like to have the county put to the
expense and irritation of an useless
The Ocala. Star says that Florida
should be divided at the Suwannee
river, that the peninsula state should
be left with the name "Florida," and
that the western division be called
Chattahoochee, after its big river, al
of which is quite foolish. What is
needed is a North and South Florida,
with the southern state beginning
somewhere in the latitude of Gaines
ville, making a southern state with
the -sub-tropical features that v give
distinction to the lower peninsula. peninsula.-Miami
Miami peninsula.-Miami Metropolis. v
The Star is much more polite than
the Metropolis else it would retort
that that paper r was quite f oolisher.
We respectfully submit that North
Florida and South Florida would
sound more like two sections of one
state than two separate states. The
name Florida was given to the penin peninsula

just as honorable and much more use

Editor Star: When I closed my last
number the First Regiment, S. C. V.,
was on board the steamer DeKalb
headed for James Island through the
inland route. Our ultimate destina destination
tion destination was Morris Island, which lies in
the harbor a short distance beyond
Fort Sumter from Charleston. We
could not travel the direct way to
Morris Island because it would have
brought the steamer in close and
direct range of the guns of Fort
Sumter and as the battle had already
opened there is no doubt that Major
Anderson would have trained some of
his guns at so tempting a target.
Therefore to get to the place where it
was deemed that our services might
be most Urgently needed and most ef
fectively used we steamed by the in
land route from Charleston to a
point on James Island called Dill's
Bluff, where we disembarked and
marched across the island to Lagare's
Point, from which place we were
taken by boat to Morris Island and
went into camp at or very near the
place where the famous Battery
Wagner was afterwards construct
edAll day long while on our jour journey
ney journey the booming of cannon and burst
ing of shells constantly vibrated the
air as Forts Moultrie and Johnson
and other batteries pounded away at
Fort Sumter and that fort replying
directing its shots at the various
forts and batteries that were batter
mg away at its walls. When we
reached our camping place we had a
clear and open view of all the forts
engaged in the fight, as Morris Island
is woodless. Fort Sumter was not
then armed with any gun that could
reach our camp and we. could there
fore watch the bombardment just as
people now.watch such scenes in the
"movies." Of course none of us had
ever witnessed such a ; scene before.
It was a strange and interesting spec
tacle and you can well imagine that
we, viewed it with the deepest interest
and excitement. All day long after
we feached our destination we watch
ed the forts and especially Sumter, to
see the hits of the balls and shells and
try to make out the effect they were
having on the walls of the fort. As
night came on the firing of the can cannons
nons cannons ceased but at short intervals
mortars, which had been trained in
the day," threw shells which were in
tended ; to fall (and r did) inside of
Sumter. These were fuse shells and
fired at a high elevation would de
scribe a parabola through the air,
drop into the fort .and explode. When
one was fired at night its course could
easily be followed in its flight by the
burning fuse as it turned over and
over, winking its eye like a fire-fly,
until it fell into the fort. Sometimes
they would explode just as they got
over the top of the fort, and scatter
its fragments down : into '. the parade
ground inside. At dawn of the day,
the 13th of April, the forts all around
began again their furious bombard bombardment
ment bombardment while Sumter opened .up its re reply
ply reply distributing its shot and shel
wherever it was thought they would
be the most effective. During 24 hours
2500 shot and shell hit Sumter or fel
inside of it, and during the day the
barracks were set on fire and endan
gered- the magazines. On the after
noon of the 13th the surrender of the
fort was again demanded and terms
were arranged by which the fort was
surrendered on the 14th. By the terms
of the surrender Major Anderson and
his garrison were allowed to salute
the U. S. flag and march out with
honors of war and were transported
to a steamer and sailed for New York.
Our troops then took possession. It
was found that the fort was consid considerably
erably considerably damaged, but there were 78
serviceable guns and to these after afterwards
wards afterwards quite a number were added. It
is a little remarkable that no one was
hurt on either side during the entire
bombardment up to the time Major
Anderson began the salute to his flag
and then by the premature firing o
a gun two or three of his men were
seriously wounded. H The damage done
to the fort or its garrison was cer
tainly not the cause which led Major
Anderson to surrender. What moved
him was doubtless the fact that his
provisions were about exhausted and
he knew that further : supplies could
not reach him and these conditions ex
isting he saw that starvation would
compel him to yield and that it was
useless for him to take any further
chances of having his men killed or
Fort Sumter! What a gallant and
heroic history it has after it was
taken possession of by the Confed
erate troops The federal forces aft afterwards
erwards afterwards bombarded it from land arid
from sea, using the largest and most
powerful, guns then known in war-
fare. Hammered away and pounded
at it for months and months until the
fort was a: mere pile of debris of
broken bricks,, sand and mortar slop sloping
ing sloping down to the water's edge, and not
a cannon left mounted. They assault assaulted
ed assaulted it time and again by troops con conveyed
veyed conveyed in small boats to land at the
foot of the ruin, but every attempt
was met by the heroic and devoted
garrison .with rifle fire and hand
grenades and signally repulsed with
considerable loss to the assailants in
killed, wounded and prisoners. The
federals very much desired to take
Fort Sumter and Charleston and made
continued and strenuous efforts to do
so in every; way they thought offered
any chances of success, but failed at
every point, and the forts and the
city continued to be held and occupied
by the Confederates until Sherman's
march through South Carolina neces necessitated
sitated necessitated the evacuation of the city and
its various defenses. This was on the
17th of February, 1865, and on April
14th, just four years from the time
Maj. Anderson surrendered, the Union
forces occupied the ruined pile of
what had been Fort Sumter, and again
raised, with imposing ceremonies the
same flag (it is said) that Maj. An Anderson
derson Anderson hauled down when he surren surrendered
dered surrendered to Gen. Beauregard.
But I have wandered away from my
reminiscences and drifted into writ
ing history, but not so far after all,
as it was the custom during the long
siege of Sumter to relieve the infan
try garrison about every ten days or
two weeks and during our stay in
South Carolina the Edisto Rifles were
called upon to serve two such- periods
in the fort? It was pretty hard and
strenuous service, but it was a proud
service and discharged willingly and
gallantly. All of our water and ra
tions had to be brought to us in the
night-time and it was quite often a
perilous time for the little steamer to
get to us. The rations were cooked
and when we got it, it was cold but it
was gladly received and eagerly de
voured by "boys" and many jolly
jokes and witticisms passed around
while we were at it. But this oc occurred
curred occurred later on in the progress of the
war, as there were at the time Sum
ter was occupied by our troops, no
Union troops anywhere on the coast
of Carolina and no war vessels any
where in Carolina waters. There was
therefore, no immediate use for our
regiment on Morris Island or else
where on our coast, and it was de
termined to move us to some place
much more suitable for encampment
and the training of the men in all the
necessary duties of a soldier, though
truth to. tell, I do not thing that a
great many of our people had any
idea at that time that the war would
be of any'great duration, so that our
stay on Morris Island terminated on
the 21st of May 61, when we were
ordered to Orangeburg which place
we reached on the morning of the
1 23rd and went Into camp in an old
field about a mile east of the railroad
Little did we think when we broke
camp on Morris Island (which I have
already said was at or very near the
place where Battery Wagner was aft
erwards built) that at that same place
later on in the war the Edisto Rifles
passed through some of the most
trying, bitter and horrifying exper
iences that we met with during the
entire war, and when I say that
say a great deal. But I will not un
dertake to tell you about all that
now, as this number has about reach

tell of the (experiences at Battery

coming had preceded us, and there
was a repetition of the scenes of our
departure a little more than six
weeks before, except the old Lord
Rawdon cannon was ; not : there, to
greet us with a salute. We had seen
bigger things in that line and heard
louder noises than a salute with a
three-pounder discharged with a
blank cartridge! But the crowd of

we stayed at Orangeburg, of which I
