Congressman Glark arid Engineer Fineran Say That it
K Probable the Government Will, Dig Silver Springs Canal
IT IS NECESSARY, HOWEVER,
Congressman Frank Clark believes
that he can get an appropriation from
Congress to dig the ship' canal from
Silver Springs to Ocala, if it can be
shown that the canal will benefit the
city, and he believes that this showing
can be made.
"It's up to the citizenship of Ocala.
I am willing to do my part," Con Congressman

development of the river and the dig digging

as one proposition.
. The meeting last night gave the
s proposed canal an endorsement that
was practically unanimous. Ed Car Car-michael

the grounds that it might prove in injurious

of Congressman Clark himself, that a

and of the Silver Springs Canal com commission,

committee of three to 'co-operate with

Mr. Clark pointed out that at pres present"

William Warwick Fineran, civil
engineer, representing Major Ladue
of the government engineering corps
in this district, accompanied Con Congressman
gressman Congressman Clark to Ocala, and was
present at the meeting. Mr. Fineran
told the meeting that it was true
that Major Ladue had recommended
in his recent report that the canal be

now that the canal was good prop proposition,

Fineran gave an outline, of what the
engineers want in the way of infor

canal? Do they demand it? There is
a difference between wanting and de demanding,
manding, demanding, the enerineer said. Is the
canal needed? If so, should, the gov

parties finance it? Or should the gov

the cost? Does the project conflict
with government improvements else elsewhere?
where? elsewhere? Will the United States benefit
by the canal? If the city and county
will benefit, then the country will ben

was told that the canal would be a

Mr. Carmichael opposed the canal
because, as he-said, no one knows
what effect it will have on the springs.
He precipitated a lively discussion by
referring to the now defunct freight
line of the Ocala Transportation com
"How many merchants patronized
the boat line?" Mr. Carmichael asked.
"It was demonstrated that a fifty per
cent saving in freight rates could be
effected, but the boat line did not get
support. When the people won't avail
themselves of an opportunity to cut
their freight rates in half, how can
they expect to get a caanl?"
H. M. Weathers spoke in favor of
the proposed canal. He thought that
any failure in the past, and the fact
that the river had not as yet been im improved,
proved, improved, should not be allowed to stand
in the way. He thought the canal
should be a means to obtaining the
needed river development.
J. J. Gerig turned the discussion 6f

of the Ocala Transportation company

Mr. Gerig. "It is up to this meeting to

about the "short-sighted farmers"

game law seems to fit in exactly
with the time when the people from
the north some down and the men in
the towns cheerfully go with them
and show them where to find birds
and other game and as cheerfully kill
all they can. We heard of one man
in Ocala who bought one thousand
