Mr. Mclver, Mr. Benjamin and Mr.

that he would be out of town, but

ONLY ONE "EVIDENCE"
A representative of this paper was
present at the meeting of the council
at which Mr. Caldwell was elected
city manager, and remembers dis distinctly
tinctly distinctly the action at said meeting.
There were several applications from
a number of outsiders for the position
of city manager, and the mayor, who
was present at this meeting, insisted
that as the charter called for a city
manager, it was then the proper time
to take action. Mr. Caldwell's name
was proposed for this position and
with no further nominations, a mo motion
tion motion was made and seconded that the
election proceed.
At this juncture Mayor Chace arose
and suggested that as a number of
outsiders presumably good men for
the place had made application it
might be a good idea to postpone ac action
tion action until an investigation of these
applications could be made, evidently
not anticipating that the council
would act so speedily when he sug suggested
gested suggested that the time was at hand to
elect a city manager, and that the
nominations for the place would close
with the name of Mr. Caldwell. The
mayor spoke for some length, and for
a time it seemed as if his suggestion
about considering other applications
would have some weight, but Presi President
dent President Nash informed the mayor that a
motion had been-made ''and seconded
to proceed with the election, which
would have to be done unless Alder Alderman
man Alderman Winer, who had made the mo motion,
tion, motion, would recall it. All eyes were
then directed at Mr. Winer, and a
hush fell over the council and audi audience,
ence, audience, all expecting him to speak. Fi Finally
nally Finally he stated to the council that his
motion would stand as made, and
after a ballot Mr. Caldwell was unan unanimously
imously unanimously elected. Immediately after
which Mayor Chace left the room,
plainly evidencing his displeasure at
the council's action. Banner.
The foregoing is as dramatically
written as anything Alexander Du Dumas
mas Dumas could dope out, and it bears an another
other another resemblance to the works of
Dumas it is strongly tinged with
fiction.
It is very true the mayor wanted a
city manager elected he also want wanted
ed wanted a man elected who was competent
to fill the position. He did not ask
for anything but a brief delay in
which the names of other candidates
could be presented and discussed. Tht
courtesy that generally prevails in
parliamentary bodies would have al allowed
lowed allowed his suggestions to be consider considered.
ed. considered. Why Mr. Winer did not extend
the mayor this courtesy we do not
know. Under parliamentary law, he
had the power to shut the mayor off,
and he used it. We do not think his
colleagues approved of his action, but
they had no remedy. We do not think
the people and the taxpayers of the
city approve of running the steam
roller over their interests in any
such fashion. They elected Mayor
Chace to look after their interest
and he is faithfully trying to do so.
In one place, the Banner, possibly
unintentionally, gives the mayor a
square deal. It is where it says:
"The mayor spoke for some length,
and for a time it seemed as if has sug suggestion
gestion suggestion about considering other ap applications
plications applications would have some weight."
etc.
If it seemed like Mayor Chace's
recommendations would have some
weight, why did Alderman Winer, on
whom the matter depended, refuse
him a hearing?
The statement that "Immediately
after, Mayor Chace left the room,
plainly evidencing his displeasure,"
has no foundation outside the Ban Banner
ner Banner reporter's imagination. Mayor
Chace had no further business with
the council that evening, consequent consequently
ly consequently he soon after went home, but he
did so quietly and without manifest manifesting
ing manifesting any displeasure with anyone.
We have noticed of late that the

Banner has certain powers which the
dictionary describes as "occult." We
would be glad if we possessed such
powers ourseif, but we have seen
them fail so many other people that
we would be afraid to depend on them.
Now, as for this city manager bus business,
iness, business, all the well-posted citizens of
Ocala understand that the election of
Mr. Caldwell was "camouflage." The
council did not intend to elect any
manager, and Mr. Winer was more
emphatically decided against such an
election than any other member. The
mayor called the attention of the
council to the fact that under the
charter there would be trouble in col collecting
lecting collecting the taxes. So Mr. Caldwell
was elected as a makeshift. The
council did not want to elect a man
that could and would manage. It
showed its sentiment toward a man manager
ager manager by its treatment of Mr. John Johnston,
ston, Johnston, who knew his business and was
a manager in fact as well as name.
So. Mr. Caldwell was elected as a
makeshift in order to render the
collection of taxes legal. A suit
brought by some well-to-do and re recalcitrant
calcitrant recalcitrant taxpayer might prove his
election illegal. He does not manage
anything except what he was man managing
aging managing before his election. The
charter plainly says that the city
manager shall make up the budget,
but the city clerk and his assistant
are making up the budget. The city
clerk, in fact, is the only thing like a
manager the city has, and while he
is abundantly competent to do the
work, it is doubtful that he has the
legal power to make up the budget.
The measure of Mr. Caldwell's ability
as city manager is shown in his re report
port report that the city plant is making
current at one and three-quarter
cents.
The attempt to make out that the
mayor is trying to persecute the
manager is an absurdity. Mr. Chace
wants the city property carefully
taken care of, and he would be dere derelict
lict derelict in his duty if he did not tell the
council and the people when he thinks
it is not being done.
Mr. Caldwell is a pretty good little
persecutor himself. When Mr. John Johnston
ston Johnston was elected city manager last
February (and by the way the Ban Banner
ner Banner gave high testimony to Mr. John Johnston's
ston's Johnston's ability), Mr. Caldwell declared
before Mr. Johnston arrived in town
that he did not intend to allow him to
interfere at the city plant, and he
persistently made himself disagree disagreeable
able disagreeable to Mr. Johnston, who finding
from the attitude of the council that
he would not be allowed to carry out
his duties, resigned in disgust and
went to take a better job.
Mr. Woods, recently night engineer
at the plant, is a competent man, and
wanted to stay here. President Nash
of the council, who knew what he
could do, wanted him to stay, and his
salary was raised to induce him to
stay, but Mr. Caldwell made matters
so disagreeable for him that he quit.
And we do not think that any good
engineer from outside the city will
stay in our plant as long as Mr. Cald Caldwell
well Caldwell is superintendent.
We had not desired to print any of
these things, but the Banner's at attempts
tempts attempts to misrepresent Mayor Chace
makes it our duty to do so.
As for the mayor's report on the
condition of the plant, which it was
not only his right but his duty to
make, it appears elsewhere in the
proceedings of the council, and we re respectfully
spectfully respectfully submit to the people if he
was not correct in doing so.
The Banner needn't hug itself too
closely about the mayor's report be being
ing being laid on the table. The report is
going to be heard from later; in the
meantime, there has been consider considerable
able considerable doing about at the plant, and
Mr. Caldwell will give it closer atten attention

the "visit." A

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And, if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money

LEAVE OF ABSENCE
By MELVIN STEVENS.
(Copyright, WIS. by the McClur Newspa Newspaper

All's fair, they say. In love and war;
which accounts for the fact that Lieut.
David Ashley and Private John Robe Robeson
son Robeson were in love with the same glrL
Less than a year ago, before the war
cloud overshadowed all other consid considerations,
erations, considerations, they had both been promising
young business men of Glendale, N. J.
Every morning they took the 8 29
train for New York, and every evening
they caught the 4:50 back to Glendale,
hoping that Margery Smith would be
free to entertain them after supper..
So things stood when President
Wilson declared a state of war ex existed
isted existed between this country and Ger Germany.
many. Germany. "It means that well send hundreds
of thousands of soldiers over there,"
Dave announced. "And believe me,;
I'm going to be one of the first to go."
But John laughed disparagingly.
"It doesn't mean any such thing, he
answered. "All well do will be to.
patrol our coast more carefully and
to make more monitions for the al allies."
lies." allies." And so, according to their lights,
Dave applied for entrance to the First
Officers Training camp at Fort Myer,
Va., and John continued his duties as
assistant manager for James McCul McCul-lum
lum McCul-lum & Sons. In the course of a few
months Dave was commissioned a first
lieutenant ; and John, his skepticism
suddenly dissolved, found himself
drafted Into the National army. A
short time later, he was ordered to re report
port report to Camp pix, N. J where he
found Lieut. David Ashley as one of
his company officers. r
Meanwhile, the contest for Margery's
hand had progressed merrily. Taking
advantage of the axiom that all is fair
in love and war, John had had a rath rather
er rather glorious time of It during Dave's
three months at the training camp.
Margery was rather lonesome ; and al although
though although she wrote at least twice a week
to Dave, she welcomed John's visits.
So, when November found both Dave
and John at Camp Dix, the, latter had
drawn almost on even terms with his
rival. .;
But as an officer Dave had the
easier time of it. Occasionally he he-found
found he-found it necessary to give orders to'
his rival, but when he did so there
was a twinkle in his eye which robbed
the situation of all bitterness. In the
matter of leaves of absence, he was
perfectly fair also. Each of the men
was' permitted to visit home once
every two weeks, and Dave managed
to fix up things so that he and John
alternated on their visits to Glendale.
Things might have gone along with without
out without change until the. end of the war,
but one evening Dave's division com commander
mander commander told him that within three
weeks it was expected that the young
officer would be ordered to report at
Camp McQellan, down in Anniston,
Ala. .v.''-.v-
It was Friday when he received word
of his probable transfer, and on the
following Sunday it was his turn to
visit Glendale. He told Margery then
that It was probably his lat visit;:
and something in her eyes filled him;
with a sudden hope. .But although his
brain urged him to ask her the guecp
tion which quivered on his lips, his
heart failed him in a most unsoldier unsoldier-llke
llke unsoldier-llke manner; so he went back to Camp,
Dix feeling very much as if the bot-'
torn had fallen out of the world.
But when' his last Sunday In the,
Northern cantonment approached, and
he pictured John Robeson sitting be before
fore before the big grate fire In Margery's
library, he hurried to company head-1
quarters and talked long and earnest earnestly
ly earnestly to Margery over s the telephone.
"Of course Til be glad to visit camp,"
she said. "I I was wondering if you
were going South without seeing me
again." .. :
Dave wondered, too, how he could
ever have thought of such a thing, and
when he met Margery at the station
the next morning, he told her- so.
They had lunch together in a way-,
side Inn which was really aconverted
farmhouse, and after they had finished!
eating, they sat still for a long time
and just looked at each other across
the table.
"Why didn't you plan to; come to
Glendale this Sunday V Margery asked
finally.
T did," Dave answered, "but I knew knew-that
that knew-that with John there, I couldn't say;
what I wanted to. It wouldn't have'
been fair to cancel John's leave of ab absence,
sence, absence, because I had promised him not'
to early in the fall; so the only thing
I could do was to have you here."
Margery nodded.
"What did you want to say to met"'
she asked.
The room was deserted the waitress,
bad miraculously disappeared; and so'
Dave told her what he had wanted to
say for ages. And when he had fin-'
ished she reached her hand across
the table and told him, so softly that
he hardly heard, that she had always
been very much In love with him.
And back in Glendale John Robeson
tramped disconsolately to the railroad
station and wondered what In the
world had happened to take Margery
so suddenly away from home.
But all's fair, they say, in love and
In war.
- Wisdom in Frankness.
In openness of mind, in frankness. In
outspokenness there is health. But
disease and danger lie in the grudges
and the hates that bury themselves un under
