Kaiser Bill, and says: "Vital forces
which are streaming across the sea
to the enemy are being attacked by
German submarines, which are cer certain
tain certain of success."

The Star regrets to have to say it,
but it is evident that the city plant
is in bad shape, and if matters there
are not mended the town may find it itself
self itself destitute of light and power for
several days on end, some time soon.
A semi-official delegation visited
the plant Wednesday night. It was
composed of Mayor Chace and Alder Alderman
man Alderman Mclver, Messrs. Tom Sexton, W.
T. Whitley and two members of the
Star staff.
The peak load was on and was be being
ing being carried by the oil engine. The big
steam engine has been out of busi business
ness business for several days, and the little
one can carry only the lighter load.
About the first thing the party
noticed was a colored man sitting by
the oil engine intently watching what
seemed to the uninitiated to be a
leak. It was in fact an oil pump, which
is supposed to work automatically. On
account of the thickness of the oil it
is necessary to watch it incessantly
while the engine is running, else the
machine might shut down, or smash
up, at any minute.
The plant was in charge of the
night engineer, A. W. Woods. The
party went thru the plant with Mr.
Woods, looking over things and ask asking
ing asking questions. Mr. Mclver and Mr.
Sexton are both familiar with ma machinery,
chinery, machinery, particularly the latter, who
has had charge of some of the big biggest
gest biggest phosphate plants in the state.
Tom, looking at the darkey, watching
the oil pump, got off a feeble joke.
He said the pump was supposed to be
automatic, so he supposed its guard guardian
ian guardian was an automatic nigger. The oil
engine was running very welL It is
a big, well-constructed machine,
plenty able to do the work, tho'
obviously out of place in a plant of
that sort. In the steady and rather
musical rhythm of its machinery,
however, could be heard a slight
knocking, and Mr. Woods said it was
caused by the bearings not being
properly keyed up. Nothing very
bad now, but soon will be if not at attended
tended attended to and may result in serious
tended to. Another trouble about the
oil engine is the gas it lets off. This
is discharged into a muffler consist consisting
ing consisting of a series of pits dug into the
ground at the northeast corner of the
building. The gas comes up thru the
rocks these pits are filled with, drifts
back : into the powerhouse whenever
jthe wind is from the east or north
east, and corrodes the machinery.
The big steam engine is out of
commission, and the piston is at the
Ocala Iron Works, being repaired.
Several days ago, Mr. Woods said,
trouble developed in the engine. Wa Water
ter Water had been leaking into it, prevent preventing
ing preventing the lubricating oil from doing its
full duty, and finally compelling the
engine to stop. Repairs can be made
and the engine started again, but un
less the fault is remedied the trouble
will soon recur. -:.'
This engine is the main depend
ence the plant. Owing to the orders
of the fuel administrator, the oil en
gine should not be operated unless it
is absolutely necessary. The other
steam engine can't carry ; the full
load. The engine is designed to run
with a condenser. There is an elab elaborate
orate elaborate ? condensing apparatus in the
plant, but it has never been used or
else tried and failed to work.; Accord
ing to Mr. Woods, the condenser is in
the wrong place. -It is overhead,
when it should be under the engine.
Mr. Sexton concurred with Mr. Woods
in the .matter of the 'condenser.
He told one of the Star men' he
had similar trouble with a big engine
in a phosphate plant, and had rem
edied it by making changes in the
arrangement of the machinery.
The little steam engine, which was
brought over from the old plant, is
the most reliable machine in the lot.
However, it is not in the best of
shape Mr. Woods took the hood off
and showed some small troubles that
will grow greater unless attended to
The party inspected the boiler
room, and Mr. Woods, when ques
tioned about the furnaces, said there
was a very bad practice in effect-
that when it was no longer necessary
for a boiler to supply steam the fire
was not allowed to die out, but a hose
was turned on to put it out. Even a
man unacquainted with machinery
knows this is very detrimental to the
grates and sides of a furnace. He
also showed where ashes had been
allowed to collect in considerable
quantity on the tops and sides of the
boilers. There is an apparatus for
clearing away the ashes but it is not
in use. We understand there is an
attempt to wash the ashes off with
the hose, but this is not only insuffi
cient, but very damaging.
There are several, other faults
found that we will not mention, but
enough was shown that prove the
plant is not being properly cared for
and there must be an improvement
or there will be sure-enough trouble
before many months.
We suppose that everybody in town
knows that the plant was badly de
signed, not any too well constructed
and left unfinished. However, it is up
to the city to make the best of a bad

buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
