The famous Carney grove of the
American Fruit Growers Inc., was
reached about one o'clock. Here lunch
was served under large live oaks, and
a fine lunch it was, too. Rotarians

mean menu, aided and abetted on this
occasion by President Harry Borland,
who is the chief "Blue Goose" of the
American Fruit Growers in these
parts. Harry had his expert cooks
prepare chicken purlo and hot coffee
and what with the other "eats" that
the three servers of mean menus had
brought along it was a feast that was
not even to be spoiled by a heavy
shower .that swept oyer the thirsty
orange groves. The shower made it
necessary to take to shelter, but no
one kicked, for everyone was glad to
see the rain for the.sake of the groves.
The drought that has existed over
the state had curled the leaves of the
orange trees and affected the fruit.
The heavy shower did not last long,
and after lunch the packing house of
the Carney groves was visited. In

Makes Reply to Martin
Communication from Alderman Thom Thomas
as Thomas Regarding the Sanitary De Department
partment Department Controversy
Mr. John R. Martin, according to
his letter in yesterday's issue of the
Star, is undoubtedly unfamiliar with
Webster's dictionary and at the same
time has very little regard for the
ninth commandment, which reads:
"Thou shalt not bear false witness
against thy neighbor."
Mr. Martin heads his letter by say say-irg,

spoke to me that my reply was that
"1 did not like it a bit the way
he was acting," I want to say right
here that this part of Mr. Martin's
letter is absolutely untrue. When
Mr. Martin walked over and spoke to
me, I greeted him as courteously as
I usually do any one. I then told him
that I appreciated his calling my at

(who is the negro in question on Mr.
Akin's pay roll) but I did not appre appreciate

says, in reference to being alderman-at-large
of this city, for it was not
necessary as the general public knows
that I have been filling this unthank unthankful
ful unthankful office for practically four years.
Neither did I tell him that I had a
man to take his place the next morn morning,
ing, morning, and this he very well knows.
After he told me that if his actipns
had become so unsatisfactory that I
might put a man in his place, I asked
him when he wanted to quit and he
said that right then would suit him.
I told him very frankly that if the
present suited him, it also suited me.
I phoned Mr. Akin Sunday night to
get Mr. Martin's crew out Monday
morning and get the men started un until
til until I could find some one to put in
charge of the work, which, I think,
proves I had no idea of firing Mr.
. Mr. Martin's story about the Akin
matter is absolutely correct and the
readers of the Star will note from his
own letter that he interfered very
much after I told him I would investi investigate
gate investigate and handle the matter myself.
After Mr. Martin made his second
report to me, which was to the effect
that he could only find one Will Tay
lor and that he was working for Ray
& Thomson, I then told Mr. Martin I
would handle the matter and I really
expected him to drop it absolutely
unless otherwise advised by me. I
then went to work trying to devise
some scheme or plan to catch Mr.
Akin, if guilty. I said nothing to any
one about the matter and finally de
cided to. watch Mr. Akin's pay roll
and if the negro Will TayloV appeared
on it as usual, I would O. K. same and
notify Mr. Akin and also Mr. Martin
at noon Saturday, the 15th, to have
all their men at the city hall at five
o'clock that afternoon, as I would pay
them off myself. By handling the
matter in this way, if the negro in
question, Will Taylor, refused to
show up for his check I would have
then known that Mr. Akin was guilty
without the shadow of a doubt. On
the other hand if Will Taylor had ap appeared
peared appeared and called for his check it
would have proven Mr. Akin innocent.
Mr. Martin according to his own
statement after making his second
report to me broke up my plans by
his actions, for he admits that after
I told him I would investigate and
Handle the matter myself he then
Went to the Munroe & Chambliss
Bank and talked with Mr. J. M. Thom Thomas,

had a talk with Mr. Fred Hocker, city
attorney, who advised him to report
the matter to me. He states that he
then went to Mr. D. E. Mclver, presi
dent of the city council. By this time,
of course, it had become general talk
all over town.
I don't know why Mr. Martin took
so much authority after I told him I

ident president of the city council, was on a
visit to his daughter in the southern
part of the state, that he (Mr. Martin)
came to me and asked that I use my
influence with certain other members
of the city council and fire Mr. Mc
Kenzie, city manager, and put him
(Mr. Martin) in his place. I told Mr,
Martin very emphatically I would do
nothing of the kind for it would be
nothing more than a low down trick,
as I .would not do anything behind a
man's back that I would not do before
his face. I walked off and left him
and, frankly, I have not had the
proper respect for him since.
Now the above is absolutely true
and Mr. Martin knows it and the
general public can form its own
opinion as to whether I am right or
wrong, for I have no axe to grind
whatsoever. Of course, I am very
sorry the whole trouble occurred, but
at the same time, I have no apologies
to make in regard to my conversation
with Mr. Martin on last Sunday
morning for I did not think he treated
me with the proper courtesy, and
neither do I think so now.
Mr. Martin stated in conclusion
that he felt that the general public
was due a full explanation in regard
to the matter and I wish to say I feel
the same way.
