San Francisco Has a Kkcht to the
Hetch II etch jr Valley Water
The following argument was made
by Miss Marie Grumbles of the elev eleventh
enth eleventh grade of the Dunnellon High
School, in a debate Dec. 5, the sub subject
ject subject of which was, "Resolved, that
Congress Should Refuse Hetch
Hetehy Valley for the Use of San
Francisco." As will be seen by the
dispatch that follows Miss' Grum-
bles' essay, the United States Senate
tcok the young lady's advice:
Mr. Vice-President, Honorable
Judges and Fellow Studens:
The subject for debate is: That
Congress should refuse to turn the
Hetch Hetchy Valley to San Francis Francisco.

effort San Francisco has con convinced

ists conservationists and a majority of the lower
House of Congress, of the justice of
her request for reservoir rights in
the Hetch Hetchy Valley and in the
Yosemite. National Park.
The bill has been passed by the
House of Representatives and is now
awaiting the action of the Senate.
But listen! San Francisco is con confronted
fronted confronted by an emergency, since prac practically
tically practically one-third of the municipality
is without adequate water supply;
the city already owns a portion of
the dam site; that of the 719,622
acres of land in the Yosemite Na National
tional National Park, only 1,330 acres will be
flooded by the proposed reservoir;
and the city is ready to give other
land, acre for acre, for the territory
it asks the nation to surrender.
Senator Key Fittman, of Nevada,
thus summarizes these advantages
of the bill: It conserves the surplus
water of the Tuolumne river, not
only for the supply of domestic use
around those cities, but for the ben benefit
efit benefit of the irrigationists of the valley.

cannot be saved except by the build building

ter water power, a hydro-electric energy of
over 115,000 horse power, which
must be supplied to all these people
at cost, thereby being the greatest
aid to relieve them from the mon
opoly that has been supplying them
with light and power in that section
of the country for years.
It not only serves the purpose of
irrigation, but it gives power to
pump the surplus water to irrigate
hundreds of thousands of acres of
land thdt can never be irrigated in
any other way. It goes further than
that: It provides a fund for build building

parks that exist in this country.
The ten points made by Senator
Thomas regarding the advantages of
the bill are these: First, the city of

tion under the laws of California, of! every other consideration must soon soon-the

Hetch Hetchy Valley is both remote

more than 275 or 2S0 people on an

try to argue this point, but records!
show that my statement is absolute-1

people visit it in the course of a
year. Then if this is the case, why

probably never thought of making
visits to the park and trying to make
something of it until San Francisco
proposed the reservoirs.

Therefore, Mr. Light's assertion
that the county worked a city street

The entire county, and much of

Marion county has about enough
convicts to keep the public roads in

enough, to build the roads needed.
The proper thing to do is to bond

The Ocala and Gainesville papers
are having some words over the fact
that the dates for the Marion and
Alachua county fairs conflicted. The
brethren should cease their quarrel
ing. It probably just happened so.
The matter should become the basis
of an organization to be known as
the Florida County Fairs Associa Association,
tion, Association, composed of representatives
from each county holding a fair.
One purpose of the organization
would be to arrange dates so there
would be no conflict; another would
be to arrange for side attractions
and exhibits for the entire circuit
instead of for one stand only, as the
present lack of system necessitates.
There are other obvious advantages
to be gained by such cooperation.
The Ocala papers didn't take part
in. any quarreling. They made some
suggestions that were warranted by
tlie facts to their own county people.

Young Man Burned at Inland Grove
Died After Days of Intense
The dreadful accident that hap happened
pened happened to Mr. Hugh J. Xeal, at Island
Grove, is one of the things that can cannot
not cannot be explained.
Mr. Xeal and the men with him
came to the smouldering remains or
the packing house that had been
burned the night before early in the
morning. Close by the fire, close
enough to make it uncomfortably
hot to touch, stool what seemed to
be a drum of gasoline, and next to
it was apparently a puddle of water.
Some of "the men with Mr. Xeal
commented on the looks of the
drum, saying it appeared to be a
gasoline drum, but of course it was
entirely unreasonable to suppose j
there could be any fluid in it, as ac according
cording according to the nature of the stuff it
must inevitably have been exploded j
by the heat hours before.
One man said perhaps the puddle t
was also gasoline, and another 1
thought it entirely safe to contro-!
vert such an unreasonable assertion
by tossing a. lighted match on the
surface of what was undoubtedly
A terrific explosion immediately
followed and Mr. Xeal and his
friends were drenched with blazing
Mr. Xeal was fully dressed. His
coat, shirt and collar were instantly
aflame. He made the mistake of
trying to run, and before his com companions
panions companions could catch him and strip
his clothes from him his body was
terribly and fatally burned.
The other men were in their
shirtsleeves, and it was the work of
an instant for each to jerk off the
blazing garment without much harm
How all that inflammable fluid
stood so. close to the fire for so many
hours without igniting, only to
blaze up like gunpowder when it
did, is one of the mysteries that
cannot be explained.
Mr. Xeal was brought to the Mar Marion

uncomfortable for Tom, for the bony

"Hold this duffer," Callis shouted
above the uproar, "while I knot to together

seemed to be the one in authority.

feet, the powerful grasp on either arm
never relaxing in the slightest degree,
and was eo held while a third hand handkerchief

He did not submit tamely to these
indignities, but as his opposition was
confined to angry curses and threats,
it was worse than futile. He sputtered
and fumed and swore until Callis in

And Tom perforce fell silent,
though he continued to seethe and
"March, you," ordered Callis's curt
voice, the command being emphasized
by a vigorous push that sent him
stumbling helplessly forward. The
firm hands held him, however, and he
moved through the tempest and the
night under their guiding impulse.
To Tom the adventure was taking
on the aspect of a nightmare. All
sense of direction was lost; not an another
other another word was spoken by any of the
incongruous party. He tripped over
obstructions and splashed through
puddles, and now and then stepped
unwittingly into depressions with a
jar that clicked his teeth together
and wrenched his neck until his head
ached. Round and round his captors
seemed to be leading him they had
long ago turned aside from the road,
he was positive; his 'brain whirled
and he staggered drunkenly. Only
once did he attempt resistance, and
stopped abruptly when his helpless
condition demonstrated the futility of
any such move on his part.
The wind had died down, but the
rain still poured a torrent and the
thunder rumbled and rolled so that
all the night was full of the sound.
After what seemed an interminable
time, Tom's feet collided, with a hol
low reverberation, against a wooden
step. He mounted three of them, and
ia an instant was out of the rain and
storm. He surmised that he was upon
a porch, and next that he was being

he sensed that Callis moved away
from him, and he remained standing,
as sodden as a drowned man, while
the water trickled from his clothes
and onto the floor.
Manifestly he was being made the
3ubject of quite a lively debate, which
came to a sudden end when Callis ad addressed

"Say, you, who are you? What's

But there was an interruption. Tom
heard a girl's voice not Jessie's, who whoever

was made composedly. And then
Tom fancied that the sweet voice's
owner was approaching him. Next

"Will you not tell us who you are

Tern's sole concern at that moment

not see the speaker. Her voice was

There was a silent pause, then a
gasp from the girl.
"It can't be!" he heard her exclaim

It did not occur to Tom to wonder
what she meant.
