Ocala, Fla., May 6, 1918.
Dr. J. E. Chace, Mayor, Ocala, Fla.
Dear Sir: In a recent editorial in
the Ocala Star, the statement was
made that the Florida Power Com Company
pany Company was not in a position to, and
would not make the city a proposition
in regard to sale of electric current to
the city of Ocala. As this statement
is not altogether correct, I beg to cor correct
rect correct the impression which may have
been made on you, and the public, in
(connection with this matter.
Over six months ago this company
tendered to the United States govern government
ment government its entire plant to be used in any
manner that those in authority should
determine. This tender has ever since
held and still holds good. The United
States fuel administration has full
authority to deal with this matter as
it is dealing today with similar situa situations
tions situations all over the country, closing
certain plants, inter-connecting others
and in some instances building new
plants, and generally, doing what
those in authority consider necessary
in order to prevent all waste and non non-economic
economic non-economic operations.
We beg to emphasize the fact that
the Florida. Power Company is mak making
ing making no proposition or overtures to, the
city of Ocala, and that it will not
make any unless invited to do so by
those in authority, or unless the fuel
administration shall require us to
make one. We wish to state, however,
that the Florida Power Company has
a large amount of power now going to
waste, and that it would be glad U,
sell its power to any city, person or
corporation that might be able to use
it advantageously, and at a fair price.
We particularly wish to impress
upon you the fact that this entire
question is in the hands of the gov
ernment, and that, so far as the Flor Florida
ida Florida Power Company is concerned, ev everything
erything everything will be done to meet the
wishes of the fuel administration, ana
the national authorities, in order to
carry out any suggested economies,
or in any way to serve the public as
the authorities wish it to be served. If
these authorities so decree this com company

Company stands ready to build the

statement from our company should
be made, and we trust it may set at
rest any misunderstanding, doubt or
question concerning our position in
Very respectfully yours, v
Florida Power, Company,

Mr. Camp read our article some somewhat
what somewhat carelessly. We did not say the
Florida Power Company was not in a
position to and wouldn't make a pro
position to the city. We said we didn't
from the Florida Power Company.
We think Mr. Nash was rather j think it was likely it would. We made
rushing things. We think the council
should wait until the power company
makes it a proposition. And we don't
think any two or three or even all the
councilmen have any right to get to together
gether together informally and give out any
official invitation. This shouldn't be
done without a meeting of and a vote
by the council. It is appropriate for
the mayor to make such an invitation,
but without a formal meeting and a
vote the councilmen have no 5 more
right to do such a thing than the
same number of private citizens.
However, it 'is all right for Mr.
Williams to come. He is a broad broad-minded
minded broad-minded and well-posted man and will
not approve of any measures being
railroaded. It is not certain he will
be here, but if he is, as many as pos possible

that statement after conferring with
Mr. Camp, and we think his foregoing
letter confirms it.
The Star will be very glad to help
in bringing about an understanding

If the power company can help thts

to do so, and if it can help itself at
the same time, we think every fair fair-minded

right now is needed everywhere.

that consequently, even if we do take

Washington, April 29.
Editor Star: We thank you very
much for your letter of April 24th
wherein you assure us of your co
operation, although you make mention
of certain contingencies.
Particularly with respect to the
question of serving power over a 40-
mile transmission line, I would ob
serve as follows:
The great bulk. of electrical power
of the United States is today trans transmitted
mitted transmitted over power lines at voltages
ranging from 11,000 to 100,000. The
Montana Power Company, which dis
tributes power over a great copper
producing section, contains 543 lines
of high tension transmission line. One
of its lines is 243 miles in length.
The Pocahontas and New River
coal fields of West Virginia which I
produce nearly all of the coal consum- j
ed by our navy; is almost entirely!
driven by central station power, and
there are probably 200 miles of high
tension power lines in each of these
fields. On account of the seriousness
of the power situation around Phila Philadelphia
delphia Philadelphia and through New Jersey and
Delaware, and on account of the con congestion
gestion congestion of railroad traffic in these
sections, the government now has on
foot a plan .which would bring addi
tional power a distance of between 75
and 100 miles from the coal fields. :-
The high commission appointed by
the British government to investigate
the power situation of Great Britain.
has recently recommended a central
station system which will, if carried
out, shut down the isolated plants of
Great Britain. According to the re
port, under central station electrifica
tion the coal requirements of the coal
industries of Great Britain will be re reduced
duced reduced from eighty million tons to
about thirty-five million tons. I may
ad d that the city of Baltimore is de dependent
pendent dependent upon power supplied from a

YOUR RED CROSS
An Army Without a Gun
By MEREDITH NICHOLSON.
Of the Vigilantes.
THE Red Cross is the greatest instrument of
A mercy the world has ever seen. Noble as the
service of mercy and helpfulness was in Civil War
days, the Red Cross surpasses it immeasurably not
only in the range and variety of its effort, but in
efficiency and effectiveness.
The Red Cross is, we may say, the arms of the
mothers of the world reached out to their sons to
bind up their wounds and comfort them. The Red
Cross is an army without a gun that wages war
only upon suffering and heartache. Where the
flag of the stars goes there the banner of the Red
Cross must fly beside it. We watch our boys go
forth to war with a spirit of hopefulness because we
know that this great agency of humanity presses
close behind them; that its work is not incidental,
but the intelligent directed effort of one of the
most marvelous organizations ever contrived by
We have all contributed to the Red Cross; we
shall be called upon again to contribute to its
funds, again and perhaps again. And we will
respond again and yet again! For this is a war for
the defense of civilization, and we of great, free,
splendid, glorious America, have every intention
that it shall be fought with the army of the Red
Cross solidly supporting our soldiers.
Ever realize that every dollar you spend makes some one
work? Of course ihe work was done before you spent your dollars,
but if you and many others didn't spend money for certain articles,
other men would cease to make them. They would then devote
their services to something else for which there was a demand.
Just now the demand for "Goods and Services" for war purposes
is greater than the supply. Therefore, when you refrain from buy buying
ing buying the things not absolutely necessary for health and efficiency,
you are releasing labor and. materials which our Government
needs to win the war.
Enlist your slacker quarters Buy with each a Thrift Stamp.
Sixteen Thrift Stamps and 15 cents may be exchanged for a War
Savings Stamp, worth $5 on January 1, 1923. You can get your
money back with interest at any time.

DONT TALK FOR GERMANY
(By Governor Boyle of Nevada)
The Germans are killing our boy3
"over there" with lies.
Every American soldier transported
to France since we entered the war
has gone to replace the Russian and
Italian resistance which was destroyed j
by murderous German lies. Every lie i
told in Russia, in Italy, and in the j
United States itself may well cost an J
American life and the total may de destroy

This is a shameful tale, but there is
one that is worse:
Every deadly, poisonous lie made in
Germany to kill our boys is tolerated,
accepted and circulated by Americans.
Without the help of Americans Ger Germany
many Germany can not win this war.
We must wake up to these facts.
Every person in this country, whether
he be an American, German-American
or any other kind of fractional Ameri American,

statements capable of restraining us
from giving our whole will, our whole
heart, and our wThole strength to this
war is doing cowardly and traitorous
work for Germany.
We cannot take refuge in ignorance,
We must recognize treason when we
see it as clearly as we identify poison
on our own shelves, and we must brand
it with the skull and cross-bones so
that all who come across it may shun
and abhor it.

power can not survive in the world.
It is a German lie that Germany is
not our most dangerous enemy.
Germany has slaughtered our men,
women and babes when we were at
peace with her. She has destroyed our
property. She -has denied our rights to
the sea unless we should make war
on her enemies. She has officially
threatened to break down our Monroe
doctrine the wall that has-kept war
from the western world. She has by
law, directed her subjects to swear
perjured allegiance to America., but to
serve Germany under penalty when
the test should come. She populated
our country with spies, dynamiters,
and incendiaries at a time when she
claimed the privileges of a friend. Her
friendship has been as deadly as her
friendship for Belgium, for Russia, or

Our alternative is German slavery a

treason under the cloak of freedom

not even further anarchy, immorality

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
