An Adverse Report on the Florida Skip
Cal by the Member of the
Special Board
The Star has received the following
communication from the War Depart Department
ment Department at Washington:
Washington, Dec. 12, 1911.
The Star, Ocala, Florida: The act
of March 3, 1909, contains the follow following
ing following item:
'Survey for the construction of a
continuous inland waterway across
the state of Florida, between suitable
points on the eastern and Gulf coasts
of said state, for the purpose of as ascertaining
certaining ascertaining the cost of a channel with
a maximum depth of twelve feet, or
such lesser depths along any section
or sections of said waterway as may
be found sufficient for commercial,
naval and military purposes. .
The report of the special board gt

available route, in by way of St. Johns
river, Oklawaha river. Lake Griffin
and Harris and- Withlacoochee river.
The depth proposed is 10 feet below
lowest low water, and the estimated
cost is approximately $16,500,000. The
recommendations of the special board
are adverse to the construction of this
canal by the United. States at the
present time. The following are some
of the principal reasons on which the
unfavorable conclusion is based:
The' distance saved between Gulf
ports and North Atlantic ports varies
from 170 to 424 miles. It Is not 'be 'believed
lieved 'believed by the special board that to
save these distances the trade between
ports on the Gulf and those on the
North Atlantic would be handled by
light draft canal steamers or barges
across the Gulf and through the canal
in preference to the faster and more
commodious ocean going steamers.
The special board is of opinion that a
canal such as is proposed would have
no great value as a through route
between Gulf and Atlantic ports; that
its value from a stragetic point of
view is small; that from a purely local
standpoint, the canal would be of con considerable
siderable considerable value as a feeder to the ports
of Jacksonville, Fernandlna and Sa Savannah,

pass. It will also be a convenient
route for pleasure craft, dredging

opinion of the special board entirely

The city of Ocala has a central
market for the sale of meat and veg vegetables.

meat shall not be sold in the city
limits outside of the said market un unless
less unless special permit be given. Up to
about three years ago, however, spe special
cial special permits were given to dealers on
the outskirts of the city to sell meat,
it being a well recognized fact that to
compel people living at a distance
from the central market,' and who
bought In quantities too small for, the
market man tq deliver, to buy at the
market would be an injustice. Some
of these small dealers, however, were
not conscientious enough to keep, their
meat in proper sanitary condition,
and so, about three years ago, after
putting the market in good condition,
the city withdrew all outside permits.
Mr. II. A. Fausett has kept a store
on the extreme western side of the
city for almost twenty years. During
much of that time he has sold meat,
mostly for the convenience of his im immediate
mediate immediate neighbors, who do their other
trading at his store; many of said
neighbors living outside the city. Con Con-iilderlng

The council disagreed with him and
id he must rent a stall in the mar market

Fausett, who lives right on the city
line, built a market just outside the
city limits and went on selling meat.

years that he has been in business in
Ocala has built up a considerable
trade In the city. People living out outside

does not go around the city drumming,

wagon in to deliver the meat. The
city has made a case against him for
this, the evidence has been submitted
and the recorder has withheld Judg Judgment
ment Judgment while he decides his duty under
the law. It will be no reflection on
him if he decides the case against Mr.
Fausett. It is his place to enforce the
laws and not to make them. But the
Star knows, by its own sense of right
as well as the opinion expressed by
nearly everyone it has consulted on
the subject that the prosecution of Mr.
Fausett is unjust. It is an invasion
not only of his rights but of the rights
of every other citizen. If he has no

Mr. Fausett has particular right to
consideration. He has lived on the
extreme verge of the city for twenty
years, during which time he has borne
his full share of municipal burdens and
received very little of the benefits. He
has had little or no police or water
protection, but has always paid heav
lly in taxes. He is one of Ocala's best
citizens. His market is clean and up-
to-date. He sells good meat, and he
has a perfect right to sell it to the
people of Ocala if they want to buy

to a higher one, and that may prove

An Inntitutfoa that Would be of In In-ealculabie

Bojn and Young Men
The Star cheerfully prints the fol following
lowing following communication written by one
who ever has the good of the young
people at heart:
Are you interested In the boys and
young men of Ocala? Are you willing
to make some sacrifice in the interest
of their future welfare? If you are,
please read this article; if you are
not, it has no interest for you.
There has been a movement started
to organize a Young Men's Christian
Association in Ocala, and it is up to
the people to give it the support that
it merits. We do not expect to do
this work in a week, or even a month,
but we do mean to do it, and any help
or encouragement you will give will
be greatly appreciated by those who
have pledged themselves to carry on
this great work.
Here is our plan: For the present
we propose to rent a suitable build building

tables. This building is to be used by
all who wish to come there to read,
write or enjoy an evening in harmless
games. The purpose of this is to pro provide

a suitable place to gather and spend
the evenings pleasantly and sociably
In addition to the reading and writ writing

that we can secure, rent free, and
turn into a first class gymnasium. We
propose to make this movement as
near self-supporting as possible by
installing a lunch counter where the
men who gather there can be served
with quick lunches at a very reasona reasonable
ble reasonable cost, the profits to go towards de defraying

There is one great reason why this
plan should succeed, and that is that
the best women of our town are be behind

their support. Another is that it fills
a long-felt want. It will be a place
where we can meet and enjoy an eve evening

for this work: There is not a place
in town that young men can go to
have an after-supper chat with a
friend, but to some barroom. This is
one of the prime leasons why so
many men drink. It Is not for the
sake of getting a drink that so many
go to the saloons, but they simply go
there because our town has no other
place for them. After they are In. it
is an easy matter to get them to take

Are you willing to do your part to
