MEET THE RAILROAD HALF-WAY
Messrs. R. Hudson Burr and Newton
A. Blitch of the state railroad commis commis-s'on,
s'on, commis-s'on, while in the city yesterday, look
ed over the city yard of the Atlantic
Coast Line, and considered the matter
of a new frelsrht depot for Ocala." The
Banner says of their visit:
"Messrs. Burr and Blitch say that it
is useless for the commission to order
the construction of the buildings and
other imnrovements contemplated, as
it will be impossible for the railroad
company to comply with the order as
long as the city eouncil refuses to per permit
mit permit the closing of the streets."
Messrs. Burr and Blitch evidently
didn't hear but one s'de of the ques question.
tion. question. If they had been made thorough thoroughly
ly thoroughly familiar with the ground, it is Im Impossible
possible Impossible that they could have come to
any such decision.
The Atlantic Coast Line has property
of its own in the south of the city,
amply sufficient to build a freight de depot
pot depot on without closing any streets. It
keeps the present antiquated shack In
its present place in hopes to. worry the
city into making certain concessions,
and the city weakly allows it to do so.
As we understand, tho railroad wants
the city to allow it to close the streets
from South Third to South Eighth. In
consideration of which it will put up a
$40,000 brick depot. The value of the
concession would be more than $40,000
now, and increase steadily as the city
The Star doesn't think the council
should allow South Fifth street to be
closed, or even blocked. It is one of
the principal streets in the city, con connecting
necting connecting the high school with one of
the leading residence sections. The
railroad has had It almost as good, or
bad, as closed for the last twenty
years, and it Is now time to open it.
The Star thinks that if the railroad
will agree to erect a good freight
building on the proposed site, south of
South Fifth street and west o Osceola
avenue, that the city should allow It to
close South Sixth and Seventh streets,
provided it will pay the city a reason
able price for so doing. The Star doesn't
see any reason for the city making the
Tailroad a present of any of its streets.
The railroad makes the people of Ocala
pay for everything they obtain from
it, and the Star fails to see why it
should expect any gifts. It is able to
pay for all it obtains, and If it wants
the city to make It any presents,, it
should set the example.
If the railroad will not accept reas reasonable
onable reasonable terms from th city, In regard
to this matter, the city, should, after
fair notification, make the railroad
move Its present disgraceful-looking
structure out of Osceola avenue, and
also make it -vacate other public prem premises
ises premises that it has held so long that It
imagines that It owns them.
The Coast Line can, if it choses, go
to work and do several things for Ocala
and vicinity things that it should do
for Its own benefit that will make the
people feel like it Is friendly and
public-spirited, and then they will re reciprocate.

ing keeping an important part of the city in an
Inconvenient and higgledy-piggledy

THAT $30,000,000 PROPOSITION
At a recent meeting, the Tampa
board of trade passed a resolution ad advocating
vocating advocating a fifty-million-dollar bond Is Issue
sue Issue for the state of Florida, the mon money
ey money to be applied to building better
roads. The Star has received from the
said board a copy of the said resolu resolution,
tion, resolution, with a letter asking that we ad advocate
vocate advocate the proposed bond issue, and
that if we oppose it we give our reas reasons
ons reasons for so doing.
The Star is opposed to the proposi proposition
tion proposition for the following reasons:
First. It is too much of a load for
our thinly settled state to assume. It
would not be so much if the state was
free of debt, but with almost every
town and county in it already burden burdened
ed burdened with debt, and our people taxed
higher than they have ever been, it
would be foolish for us to assume an another
other another financial obligation, the interest
on which alone would call for a tax of
at least $3 per capita. That is, every
farmer, artisan, business and profes professional
sional professional man would add from $15 to $50
a year to his taxes, for as everybody
knows a considerable portion of our
population never pays any taxes.
Second. It does not appear to us to
be the best way to build roads. We
prefer that each county construct Its
roads as It can and will, and the state
aid It as much as Is practicable. We
want to see Marion county bond for
roads to a reasonable amount, and see
the money spent among our own peo people
ple people and under their supervision. We
know very well where we would come
In, also where e would get off, with a
big $50,000,000 bond issue. The first
dash out of the box would be a road
from Jacksonville down the coast from
one of Flagler's hotels to another; and
then Pensacola and Tampa would have
to have theirs before there was a yard
of road laid for a Marlon county far farmer
mer farmer to haul produce or merchandise on.
The "laterals" would be built, of
course, if there was any money left
when the main lines were built. There
might not be any left. A competent
bunch of grafters could make $50,000, $50,000,-000
000 $50,000,-000 look like 30 cents before the main
lines were built, and with fifty millions
to handle no one need doubt that the
grafters would be strictly on the Job.
It la practically certain that the
present legislature will abolish the
state convict lease, and when it does
the proper and natural use of the con convicts
victs convicts will be on the roads. They are
not likely to be all put there at once,
but many of them will be, and nearly
all are certain to be put there In time.
It is the best work they can do they
can do the state more good that way
than any other, and it is about the only
work they can do without coming Into
competition with free labor.
Another thing is that It is reasona reasonably
bly reasonably sure that in a few years the fed federal
eral federal government will turn Its attention
to building a number of great national
highways, and when it does one or
two of them are sure to pass through
Florida. Between the certainty of
county work and state convicts, and the
probability of a great federal highway
or two, for the people of Florida to put
fifty million dollars into a bond issue
would be as ridiculous as trumping
your partner's ace. It would be un unnecessary,
necessary, unnecessary, extravagant and unwise.
The Star believes In progress, but it
sees very little in this fifty-million
proposition except a carnival of ex extravagance,
travagance, extravagance, and- a grinding debt for
the present generation to stagger un under,
der, under, and turn over to Its children.
We have consulted some of our best best-posted
posted best-posted financiers and business men on
the subject, and they not only do not
favor it, but express a doubt that the
state would be able to sell sucn a
large issue of bonds on good terms, if
The following from the Tampa
Times, written In the light of past ex
perience, is very good argument:
That "the size of the project" of
bonding the state for fifty million dol dollars
lars dollars will be the greatest advertisement
that the state has ever had in a way
is unquestionably true. It will ad
vertise to the world that Florida has
something less than a million of the
craziest lunatics or the greatest
gamblers on the habitable globe to
risk almost the value of he entire tax taxable
able taxable property of the state upon the
success of a single proposition.
"Enterprise and public spirit" un unbalanced

financial sagacity will not commend
themselves to the shrewd investors
who would be asked to handle the tre

The inquiries will surely be made,
"What is the security for the payment
of these bonds at maturity? "What
collateral lies behind them?" The men
who have accumulated sufficient re resources

such stupendous sums as fifty million
dollars do not lend such amounts upon
speculative hopes of future attainment.
There must be something presently
Some years ago, when it was pro proposed

it will take years to relieve, and what

streaks of mud and dust and a legacy
We are not familiar as yet with the
details of the fifty million scheme,
such, for instance, as the time it is
proposed for the bonds to run and the
rate of interest they are intended to
bear. These two item will have much
to do with the aggregate debt that the
people of Florida will be asked to place
upon themselves. If the time and the
rate are similar to those of the county
bonding scheme, the people. If they are
guilty of the unspeakable folly to
which the promoters are endeavoring
to persuade them, will pile up a pyra pyramid
mid pyramid of one hundred million, instead of
fifty, for themselves and powerless
posterity to remove. Will they be guilty
of the colossal folly of fathering this
stupendous "advertising" coup, or will
they, In their sturdy common sense
consign it to the fate it merits? We
have no doubt of the answer.

Cooperation, the book of books, In

"Come let us reason together." A
reasoning together Is the keynote of
cooperation without which no concen concentrated
trated concentrated action can be a success. No
matter how seemingly well planned.
Woman's Club work has so many
branches of interesting work that to
an outsider. the carrying out of them
may seem a puzzle but the active spirit
of cooperation underlies the entire
work everywhere. For Instance, the

Tallahassee was teaching along the
Nowr our Woman's Club of Ocala is
planning and has in full consideration
the holding of what may be called a
"Demonstration Fair," to show to the
best advantage the beautiful goods, for
looks appeal, that the local stores
carry. Lovely" dresses 'and other dress
goods will be exhibited and explained
by artists in the different lines. Many
people outside of our town do not fully
realize the varied line of exquisite dry
goods our stores carry. The other
varied industries of our town will have
different exhibits all handled nnd
shown to the public by experts in their
line of business. The "Fair" will be
well advertised and a" Targe crowd .will

The Maa Hlfher Up"
Cftpyrirht. 1911. ky the Bobbt-IHerrtil
T was characteristic of Mur Mur-chell
chell Mur-chell to give the world no ink inkling
ling inkling of his illness. He was
supposed to Lie. sulking over
his defeat. Not until after tlie fact did
he surgeons, unable to refuse tbe op op-ixrtunity
ixrtunity op-ixrtunity for self advertisement, an announce
nounce announce that a critical oieration had
!e.en performed from which there were
luipes of a partial recovery. Interest in
his condition iersited extraordinarily,
cousidcriug that lav was out of politics.
When his t on valescence permitted it
he was reniovtd to Xew Chelsea. That
community, as you may lelieve. was
properly excited, intrusively interested
and somewhat apprehensive lest he
pass unreasonably into the beyond and
rob it of the distinction of Leiug his
"legal residence." John Dunmeade,
as a collaborator in this disaster, was
made to feel a sudden atmospheric
frigidity and was led into further sor
rowful reflections on the fickleness of
the public. Murchell in very ungra
cious fashion kept himself secluded
from his neighbors and the stream of
pilgrims that knocked at his gates
Their plaints were divers. Sherrod
was too arbitrary, he was too lax, he
permitted himself and his friends to
shake the plum trees of the cities so
vigorously as to court failure of the
crop, he greedily refused to divide the
plums. From which it will appear that
Sherrod, even thus early In his minis
try, showed an incomplete mastery of
the subtle science of suiting the word
lo the man. f Murchell was urged to in
tervene, to resist, to destroy. For oue
and all he had only the irritable re reiteration,
iteration, reiteration, 'I am out of politics." But
the pilgrimages continued.
In the midst of this uncertainty the
Michigan railroad began secretly to
undermine the Steel City, that hither
to impregnable fortress of the rival
monarch. And John Dunmeade's an
nouncement was made that, whether
renominated as district attorney or not,
he would be a candidate, anti-Sherrod
and antl-Murchell, for the guberna
torial nomination. Jerry Brent was al
ready well into a campaign for the op opposition
position opposition nomination, theretofore re
garded as an empty honor.
We may not go so far as to declare
that Miss Roberta turned the course
of history. But it is certain that she
was first to foresee, though not with
her bones, the fork of the road. So
touching were the pictures presented
to her of Murchell's illness that at
length, after a protracted struggle with
herself, her heart relented. She filled
a basket with homemade comestibles
designed to tempt the appetite of the
most jaded invalid. This basket on
her arm, she set out, on a day when
the March wind blustered and stung
her face, toward Murchell's home.
She found Murchell "reading before
an open fire, his cheeks slightly pale
and sunken, but his eyes clear and
bright. He rose, with an ease that
did not betoken approaching dissolu
tion, to relieve her of the basket, shak
ing hands warmly.
