Mr. J. D. Robertson inveighs
fiercely against the new city charter.
Mr. Robertson had no word to say
about the charter until he thought he
could make political capital out of it.
Like every other citizen of Ocala, he
knew when the council was framing
it, but he -did -not appear before it, to
oppose any suggestion, or- objection.
Mr. Robertson says: "No charter
making a radical change shall be
passed with my ; consent which does
not give the voters of Ocala the op opportunity
portunity opportunity to express, their approval
or disapproval." He forgets that a
charter was passed in 1915 when he
was mayor, and that he di3 hot make
any attempt to have it submitted to
the voters, although it was passed
entirely with the view to enable the
city to make large expenditures.
Now, the new charter may be good
and it miy be bad, but of this thing
we may be certain the election of
John D. Robertson -will not make it
any more agreeable to live under.
SIR, ROBERTSON'S LETTER
A letter from Mr. John D. Robert
son, ex-mayor of Ocala, appeared in
the Banner of Sunday.
Mr. Robertson says "having been
induced to become a candidate for the
office of mayor." That is correct. In
duced, is a good word. Mr. Robertson
Mr. Robertson begins by proclaim
ing his loyalty, and denouncing the
would-be patriots who accuse him of
being disloyal. Mr. Robertson may
be loyal. It will be observed, how however,
ever, however, that the few disloyal men among
us, including the patriot who wants
to see the American flag torn to
shreds, and the boys of Company A
come home in coffins, are among his
Mr. Robertson says he is "today
planting and growing food crops ana
doing more to conserve, aid and assist
this government in carrying the war
to a successful conclusion than a
dozen of any of the hot-air artists
and curbstone patriots who rant and
foam at the mouth over the question
of my lack or want of patriotism."
-This is good patriotism good for
the -country and also good for Mr.
Robertson. It will be' observed when
the said crops are in that Mr. Robert Robertson
son Robertson will charge the full market price
for them. This is patriotism with a
big P profitable patriotism.
Mr. Robertson says don't let thb
question of patriotism sidetrack other
issues. Then why should he give it
the right of way. If it has nothing to
do with the matter, why give it so
' Mr. Robertson says that he at first
opposed conscription, but that when
it became the law of the land he
withdrew his opposition. A lot of
other patriots ceased to oppose con conscription
scription conscription about the same tjme he did.
Some who kept on opposing it are in
jail and the others are scared into
being good. V
Mr. Robertson says he has advised
and urged young men to volunteer.
Altho' we have skirmished around a
right smart with the volunteers, we
heard nothing of Mr. r Robertson's
merits as a recruiting officer. The
opposite opinion seemed to prevail.
Mr.? Robertson says he is willing to
work in harmony with the city coun
cil. We can all remember the brand
of harmony that he dealt out 'during
his previous administrations. .There
was a row on with the' council,- or
somebody else, all the time. Of
course it never' was Mr. Robertson's
fault. -He was always right.
: ; Mr.' Robertson refers to the water waterless
less waterless water plant! He is as much re responsible
sponsible responsible for that plant as anybody.
When the water plant was in the
hands of a private company, he was
among the most severe of its critics.
It was under his administration that
the' old plant was bought. It may be
possible, however, that he opposed
building a new one. We are inform informed
ed informed by one of his close acquaintances
that he said the old plant was all the
plant we needed. At eny rate, the
J enterprise of building the new plant
was set on foot and started under his
administration. And his remark
about a waterless plant is a pure fab fabrication.
rication. fabrication. The city has plenty of wa water
ter water more than it ever had, and it
Mr., Robertson's criticism of the De
La Vergne engine at the plant Is cor correct.
rect. correct. The engine is a good deal like
his administration as mayor can't
do anything without making a devil
of a lot of fuss about it. We will
either silence the engine or get rid
of it, and if we keep Mr. Robertson
out of the mayor's office, we will
have a comparatively peaceful town.
Mr. Robertson might have kept the
De La Vergne engine from being
saddled5 on the town, however if his
disposition to be contrary had been
in good working order at the proper
time. The change in plans that caus caused
ed caused the "engine to be substituted for the
one first proposed was made while he
was mayor. It was made in Septem September,
ber, September, 1916, l before Dr. Chace had con consented
sented consented to be a candidate.
We are more disposed to be fair
than Mr. Robertson, so we don't think
either he or the council is responsible
for the noisy engine. That was the
fault of the engineers. But if Mr.
Robertson had rushed to the rescue
and "told us the engine would make
such, a hell-raising racket, we have no
doubt that he would have started an
investigation that would have kept
that piece of machinery out. of the
plant.. But he was asleep at the
switch. Or he didn't know anything
about the engine. : When it comes to
the De La Vergne engine, Mr. Robert Robertson
son Robertson had better set the engine a good
example and be silent.
Mr. Robertson makes a kick on the
city rock crusher. The rock crusher,
so we are told, is" a good piece of
machinery. It has done good work,
and is doing good work now. The city
might have purchased a better one,
or one as good, for less money. But
if it might; why did not Mr. Robert Robertson
son Robertson object in time.: The crusher, like
the De La Vergne engine," was chosen
during his administration. The coun council
cil council sanctioned its purchase in October,
1916. Why didn't Mr. Robertson ap appear
pear appear before the council at that time,
tell its members it was an inferior
piece of machinery, and that he
would not sanction its purchase?
Again he was asleep at the switch.
If you want to see a monument of
an useless purchase, go look at that
field in front of the Atlantic Coast
Line passenger station. That field be belongs
longs belongs to the city. It used to belong
to a man who doesn't live here. As
he couldn't use the field, he wanted
to sell. With the assistance of Mayor
Robertson and a council in sympathy
(for a few weeks) with Mayor Rob Robertson,
ertson, Robertson, he unloaded on the city. He
received $12,000 in cash for his lot.
It strained the town's finances to
raise the money. The lot has never
been worth anything to the town. It
is true that the Carnegie library is
perched on a small part of it. But a
much better lot for the library could
have, been secured for less than a
thousand dollars. ; In fact, one good
citizen offered to give a lot for it. So
the "Civic' Center" lot has been that
much dead loss. Whenever you hear
Mr. Robertson talking about how he
saved money for the city, lead him
gently to the corner of Oklawaha and
Osceola avenues and let him gaze
upon that lot.
Notwithstanding his self -laudation,
we doubt that there will be any sal salvation
vation salvation for Ocala in Mr. Robertson's
election. The city council-will con continue
tinue continue to govern Ocala. We hardly
think it will agree with Mr. Robert Robertson.
son. Robertson. A council made to order for
him was elected a few years ago, and
in less than six months he was de demanding
manding demanding that' certain of its members
resign. All the effect his election will
have on the city will be the resump
tion of the same old row.
Mr. Robertson speaks of the secret
meetings of a little band of patriots
to raise a fund to defeat him. If it
was a secret meeting, how did he find.1
it out? And -since he has found it
out, why not go further and tell us
who were at the meeting and how
much did they raise ? : :
How about the "secret meetings"
that Mr. Robertson and his few cro cronies
nies cronies delight in ? And those other
meetings, that wherever two or three
gather together in the name of dis discontent,
content, discontent, lo, tfiere he is in the midst
There is nothing to Mr. Robert Robertson's
son's Robertson's candidacy except 1 his opinion
that nobody is fit to boss this town
But this town doesn't want any

BEER MUST GO.
In not one of the 26 dry states, nor
in the District of Columbia, Alaska or
Porto Rico, does the prohibition law
exempt beer. Beer is not exempt in
the army and navy prohibition regula regulations,

with millions of dollars behind them,
tried to force a beer amendment upon
the people., and in every case were
overwhelmingly defeated. These facts
and the growing anti-beer sentiment
throughout the country should con

birds that build their nests In colonies.

and cats from reaching the hole.
It is much better to hinge the roof,
as then you can clean the house out
at the end of the season, which must
be done or the birds will not return.
It is wise to dust out the inside of an
