Had the Pumps at the Water Works
Been Doing Full Duty Saturday
Morning, Fire Loss Would Probably
Have Been Cut in Half.
The water pressure was too weak.
Such is the opinion of hundreds of
Ocala's citizens, including most of the
city officials, who saw Saturday morn morning's
ing's morning's fire.
The people of Ocala have paid for
an uptodate water plant, one that
should at any time at a minute's no notice,
tice, notice, throw a stream of water over
the highest building in town, and they
have slept secure in the 4 belief that
they had such a plant. Consequently,
their chagrin can be imagined when
they saw or learned of Sfturday!
The triple-room store of MacKay &
Company was long and ivide, but not
high, but when the water was turned
on a few minutes after four o'clock
Saturday morning, the stream would
go but a little above the sills of the
second story windows. And it was
nearly an hour before they were ap appreciably
preciably appreciably stronger. Four streams
were on two from the front of the
block and two from the rear. They
were played to the best advantage,
but had the wind been high not only
the whole block but probably that on
the other side of the street, would
have been past saving in that time.
On the other hand had the water
pressure been what the town had the
right to expect it to be, it is more than
likely that the fire would have been
confined to MacKay's main building,
and even some of that might have
We are informed that the pumping
apparatus at the water plant did not
work properly that it was nearly an
hour before it could be made to do
so and if such be the case the tax taxpayers
payers taxpayers would like to know why. It
has been the supposition that the
pumps were kept in touch and go
order that the signal of fire was all
needed to set them racing at the full
speed of efficiency.
A friend of ours a gentleman not
only well acquainted with the techni technicalities
calities technicalities of water plants and mains,
and those of Ocala in particular, but
also a veteran in fire fighting says
that one great fault is in the mains;
that they put brakes, so to speak,
on the rush of the water from the
high tank at the plant to the hydrants,
and the place where power is most
needed is at tKe hose nozzle, and that
is why Ocala needs a pumping engine
added at once to its apparatus. No
doubt this is true, but that does not
excuse the apparatus we already have
from falling so far short of what it
can do when it is most needed.
The fire chief says that had the
pressure been as strong at 4:20 as it
was an hour later, he is confident
MacKay's chapel and warehouse,
Gerig's building to the north, and
Mrs. Chace's building to the south,
as well as a great quantity of goods,
could have been saved, for the peo people
ple people owning the other establishments
on the block would not have moved
their goods out had it not seemed at
one time imminent the buildings they
were in would go.
It is also practically certain that
had our fire department possessed a
pumping engine of the efficiency of
that of Leesburg, the fire would have
been smothered under a deluge of
water in half an hour or so, and over
a hundred thousand dollars worth of
property saved. The fire chief earnest earnestly
ly earnestly requested the council, last year,
to buy such an apparatus, and his
advHce was disregarded.
It is probable that a pumping en engine
gine engine will be provided by the city at
the earliest possible date. The mayor
and all members of the council we
have consulted are in favor of it. It
will also be salubrious to see to it
that the pumps at the city plant are
hereafter kept in condition to answer
a call at a minute's .notice.
AFTERMATH OF THE FIRE
The Star didn't print a very good
story of the fire Saturday. Almost ev
ery member of the Star force was at
the fire, but they were all there to
work, and no one of them saw more
than his own little space. They were
like the soldier who. when asked to
describe the battle of Waterloo, said:
"All I saw was smoke and the man in
front of me." In a big city, a news newspaper
paper newspaper man can stand around a fire
and take notes; in a little town like

to his being ti candidate for supervi

in the Journal of Industrial and En Engineering

Ilawley of Yale university. "Today
the annual growth of wood," he writes,
"is approximately 6,000,000,000 cubic
feet. The possible growth, provided
the lands are properly restocked after
cutting, is conservatively estimated as
27,750,000,000 cubic feet per year. Not
all of this annual growth would be
available for manufacturing liquid
fuel. Lumber and numerous other
forest products must be provided for.
