off by Miss Rogers and her co-work

Thirteen or fourteen or fifteen or
sixteen cars, full of the charmine and
accomplished performers, some cam
ouflaged in costume, others just eve-
rydayso, traversed our streets short shortly

to sea Peter Pan.

Miss Mary C. Marshall left today
for New York, where she will receive
her equipment and instructions before
going to France to aid in nursing our
sick and wounded soldiers. Miss
Marshall is the best superintendent
the Marion County Hospital ever- had.
She has filled a most important and
necessary place in the life of our
city for several years. She is one of
America's most noble and useful
women, and the heartfelt good wishes
of our people will accompany her
wherever she "goes.
In Belgium is a city the size of
Ocala that four years ago was as
prosperous and peaceful as Ocala was
at the same time. Today it is a dead
city. It is as dead as Pompeii, and a
thousand times- more pathetic." The
roofless houses are open to the sky;
the shattered windows stare like
blinded eyes upon the silent streets.
The Germans, in wanton violation of
their plighted word, invaded Belgium
in August, ; 1914. They came to this
little town, the terrified people of
.which offered no resistance. A short
distance away, a detachment of the
Belgian army, srave the advancing
horde, a slight -setback. So the Ger-
Ocala has had about as much trou trouble
ble trouble over its electric plant as a young
mother has over her first baby and
it looks like Ocala's baby would never
It's a pretty good baby, all things
considered, but its mommer is always
worrying about what it's going to do,
or what somebody or other is going to
do to it.
Right now there is complaint about
the service and the proposed advance
in rates. The fussing is mostly by in interested
terested interested parties or folks that don't go
around much. The plant is probably
giving as good service as any plant
of its size in the country. The rate
is the lowest in Florida, and few
cities in the country are receiving any
lower. If the "rates are raised, they
will still be lower than those given by
any plant except the almost model one
It seems almost absolutely neces necessary
sary necessary to raise the rates. The city man manager,
ager, manager, who seems to be a competent
man, and who knows nothing and
doesn't want to know anything of our
local squabbles, says the plant is
drawing a revenue, in round numbers,
of about $3300 a month; and its ex expenses
penses expenses on the other hand is about
$3800 a month a loss of $6000 per
The president of the council, Mr.
George Nash, however, says that the
city should be credited with the
amount that would be paid for street
lighting and other municipal purposes,
that would have to be paid -to a pri private
vate private corporation, and this would be
enough, or more than enough, to
make up the deficit.
If the city manager's figures are
correct, they will -show that the men
who calculated the expenses and re receipts
ceipts receipts of the new plant on the condi
tions of three years ago left a safe
margin to go on, because at the
highest estimate the deficit is not
more than 12 per cent, while almost
everything in connection with the
plant has gone up 30 per cent or more.
The most troublesome item is fuel.
Crude oil and kerosene for the oil en
gme costs about 70 per cent more
than when it was decided to use that
much abused '- piece of machinery,
which is doiirg about half the work.
Wood, that is the best wood, costs
about $3.25 per cord by. the time it is
unloaded. The best wood, however, is
almost impossible to obtain. The city
is now being supplied by the Martel
Lumber Company with slabs from its?
mill. They cost $2 per cord, but they
only go half as far as good pine
wood, so their cost is comparatively
about $4 per cord.. Notwithstanding
this disadvantage, the city was in luck
to be able to obtain this wood, as the
supply is steady. It is possible that
the plant would have had to shut down
some times without it.
The oil engine savesmoney, but the
supply of fuel is precarious. There
is plenty of oil in ; the country, but
getting it here is the problem. The
government has first claim on th
tank ships and the tank cars, and if
it gets in a crush it isn't going to stop
to notice whether a little Florida city
is supplied or not. Moreover, the oil
fields of Mexico are liable to be cut
off from the United States at any
time. If they are, it isn't likely that
our own oir supply will be more than
enough for the American and allied
navies and their most essential works
It seems strange that it is difficult
to obtain wood in a country full of
wood.. The scarcity of wood in Ocala
is due to the scarcity of labor. Many
men of the laboring class have gone
to other sections and those left are
busy in the fields. Practically none
are left to cut and haul wood. In a
few weeks the crops will be laid by
and then for awhile there will he
more wood cutters that is, unless
the men go to other parts. But at any
rate there will soon be more crops to
plant and to work. We need "not ex
pect any permanent relief in this line
until the war is over. When will.it be
over? There is no chance that it will
end this year and the most optimistic
do 'not expect it to end next year. And
when it ends, war conditions will go
on for a long time. If this section
has "returned to the conditions of three
years ago half a dozen years from
now it will do well.
It would seem the sensible thing to
raise rates on electric current to those
imposed up to a few year's ago. Even
then they would be far lower than
those of most other towns. All the
towns around here Palatka, Day-
tona, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Lake
land everything but Jacksonville
would be paying more.
Some of our experts in government
have said to us that it isn't necessary
to raise the rates, that there are ways
and means to run the plant on the
present rates, and we have offered
them space in the Star to set forth
their ideas, but so far they have not
offered. their solution of the problem
We would be glad to have them do so
The Star uses a great deal of current
and a raise in rates will materially
increase its expenses. We would be
very glad to see the present rate con
acrimonious, has been caused by the
recommendation last week of the na national
tional national fuel administration that the
city and the Florida Power Company
come to an agreement by which the
former could obtain current from the
latter. We have been investigating
jthe proposition, and we do not see
much probability that it will be car carried
ried carried out.
If the Florida. Power Company's
plant was just over the hill, or if it
had wires into the city, it would, in
our opinion, be the natural and sensi
ble think to take its current if it
would furnish it at a reasonable rate.
We would in so doing neither sacrifice
the principle of municipal ownership
nor throw away our plant. The city
would take the current and distribute
it to the pepple, and the plant would
be kept in readiness for use without
being subject to the wear and tear of
constant use. We would get rid for
he time being of the troublesome and
expensive fuel problem, maintain our
ow rate on current and utilize a part
of the energy that is now being wast wasted
ed wasted at the rate of 2000 or more horse horsepower
power horsepower over the company's "dam on the
We don't think it likely that the
lorida Power Company will make
any proposition to the city. It could
not furnish current to Ocala without
putting up a line for over twenty
miles, which would cost $20,000 at
east. It would have to give a rate that
would allow the city to keep its own
plant in good order and constant
readiness. We have no idea it could
do anything of the sort without mak
ing a contract for a term of years
half-dozen at least. As soon as the
war ends, the phosphate mines in the
Withlacoochee valley will need all the
current the Camps can supply. The
ands of Europe are starving for phos
phate -and the biggest boom in that
material ever known will set in, and
Ocala will prosper greatly in consequence.
The Star some years ago uncom
promisingly fought the proposition to
turn the electric current business of
Ocala over to the Florida Power Com
pany, and Mr. R. C. Camp pays the
paper the compliment of saying that
but for, it his proposition would have
been accepted. We think he honors us
too highly; we knew public sentiment
and voiced it under the same circum
stances, we would again follow the
same policy. Right now we are sorry
the city and the power company- are
bo tuated that they can't help each
other. It would, in our opinion, be
good business and patriotism to do so.

to aid another, to prevent waste and
to direct energy even from an useful
