BY ITS DECISION
A special meeting of the city coun
cil was held last night, at the request
of the J. B. McCrary Company, for
merly the city's engineers on the
sewer contract, to hear their side of
the situation, to protest against their
discharge and ask the council to re reinstate

at the meeting Chairman Protein G.
A. Nash, who presided, Messrs. Roess,
Tompkins, Knight, Moore, Fausett
A number of citizens and city of officials
ficials officials were present, including City
Engineer Drake, City Attorney Hock Hock-er
er Hock-er and Mr. McCormick, the engineer
who has been in charge of the en engineering
gineering engineering with Mr. Drake since the
McCrary people were discharged.
Mr. West, vice president of the Mc McCrary
Crary McCrary company and Mr. Crook, the
company's chief engineer, were pres present
ent present to represent the company. Mr.
West is well known here, having been
paying Ocala frequent visits for a
number of years and has many
friends here. Mr. Crook has been in
the city several times since his com company
pany company had the work and while nego
tiation for the work were in progress.
Mr. West was the first to speak. He
made a good talk and understood his
subject. In substance he said that
whatever faults had come ud were
not intentional and he believed if his
company has a chance that it could
redeem itself and make everything1
right, and asked for specific charges.
Mr. Drake read his former report
to the council, the one on which in
formation the council discharged the
engineers. He answered very prompt-
by all questions that were asked and
substantiated every statement made
with the specified information. v Mr.
Drake stated that it was not his wish
to get the engineers in trouble, but
he would stand by the people who em
ployed him, the city, and would pro
tect the city's interest in every case,
he had been doing this, fairly and
honestly, and would risk his reputa
tion as an engineer that his reports
and statements 'Were absolutely cor
rect. ,- oV'f
Mr. West asked Mr. Drake where he
obtained his expert experience and to
point out jobs that he had engineered
Mr. Drake stated that he did not pose
as an expert sanitary engineer, but
that he was a competent civil en
gineer,. having had '25 years exper
ience and done work for the British
government in South Africa and Aus
tralia,. had done work in China and
also for the United States govern
ment. The air became heated in the
crosses between Mr. West and Mr.
Drake, but Mr. Drake stood squarely
back of his statements and was al
ways armed with the "fax and fig
gers" from hisi minute written field

Mr. West asked that the council ex
clude the public for a ; short time
while certain matters were gone into.
Mr. McCormick objected to this. Mr.
Hocker stated that the city's charter
orbade a "star chamber" or ex
ecutive session, and that the only
thing to do was 'to adjourn for half
an hour and informally discuss any
thing that might come up. A motion
made by Mr. Roess for. an adjourn adjournment

would not submit to being made a

that he was made the goat in North

newspaper clippings that Mr. West
handed the different members of the
council) and would not be made the

A union thanksgiving service was
held at the Methodist church last
night. The services were led by Rev.
John Herndon of the Presbyterian
church. Mr. Herndon stated that the
object of the meeting was to have the
pastors and members of the various
chtirches express their gratitude to
God for the prohibition victory of
Tuesday. After singing several pa patriotic
triotic patriotic hymns, Mr. Herndon gave var various
ious various grounds for gratitude. He was
followed by the other pastors in short
and appropriate talks. A special
feature of the service was an enthus-
astic talk by Rev. Hertzog, the sup
ply pastor of the Christian church.
Other talks were made by J. P. Phil Phillips,
lips, Phillips, W. W. Clyatt, W..K. Zewadski,
S. P. Hollinrake, Dr. E. Van Hood,
Mrs. C. L. Bittinger, Mrs. T. E.
Bridges, Mrs. E. Van Hood, Mrs. F.
R. Bridges and others.
The spirit of this service was one
of sympathetic consideration for the
business welfare of those who have
been put out of business by the re
sults of this election. There was no
spirit of crowing over the saloon men.
Another feature brought out by sev
eral of the speakers was that the
citizens of Ocala and Marion county
have voted upon themselves not only
prohibition but the responsibility of
seeing, that prohibition prohibits. To
that end it is quite likely that a law
and order league will be organized in
the near future.

That very morning Arthur, distrust distrusting

around him. had written a telegram to
Blake, the Richmond detective. Of all
with whom he dealt-Arthur had the
most confidence In this astute and se secretive
cretive secretive confidential agent of his. Ar Arthur
thur Arthur also felt he could trust his Eng English
lish English butler, Parker. Taking advantage
of a moment that he was alone, Arthur
had scribbled the telegram. It read:
"Answer at once. Is Esther Harding
in Los Angeles? Also wire condition of
Hagar Harding." The telegram was
signed with the name he was known
by in the west. John Powell. He hand
ed this to Parker, who faithfully prom-
ised he would send the telegram in se secret,
cret, secret, and he kept his word.
When Blake received this strange
message he was puzzled, for he knew
Esther had been In the west for sev several
eral several weeks. But he had learned of
Arthur's injuries and deemed that
Esther was kept from the injured man.
For Blake knew, too, that Blair and
Vivian were in -Los Angeles, and he
suspected them. Blake telegraphed
promptly: "Answering your wire. Miss
Esther Harding is in Los Angeles. Ha
gar Harding continues to improve.
This telegram was tielivered at the
offices of the Good Hope Oil company.
Blair, In charge, receivjed all business
and personal communications in the
absence of the injured Arthur. Blair
opened the envelope cautiously at the
suggestion of Vivian, who was pres

first line of the message, which was

"Answering your wire, Miss Esther

"Vi, you are a genius! cried Blair.
They placed the telegram in the type typewriter,

and the entire import of the message
was changed. Then Blair carefully
sealed it in the envelope and sent it by
the office boy to Mr. Powell at his

for sure!" cried Blair. ."But lie must
be pretty cunning at that to get a tele telegram

De Vaux knowing of it, for they watch
him like hawks."
"Since the diamond from the sky
turned up so tragically at the circus,
Durand has forgotten his patient,' said
Vivian. "I believe Durand might have

content that I have full charge, and he
does not question whether I will cheat

"Who would hot?" murmured Vivian.
"I have sold my soul, and you have

never be dirty spoil for them."
"You want to be careful and cunning
and daring, then, said Vivian. "I
know Durand of old. He goes through
blood and fire for a diamond of price.
It is an obsession with him. He was
born so marked. His mother was a

wife and murdered her mistress for a

Durand was born. He was born in

Blair grimly. "lie had better keep his

Vivian regarded him strangely, but
said nothing. If this were true, why
had the diamond from the sky avoided

Arthur was clay In the bands of the
