Actual work on the magnilieeiit

of excavating for the basement and
foundations, on the site, corner of
Kentucky avenue and Lemon street.
The contract lor this work was let

GEN COX ENDORSES
Lakeland, Fla., March 3, 1913.
Editor Telegram: I desire to en
dorse most emphatically your posi
tion on the school house matter. It
U absolutely fair to all. It Is prac
tical and will bring results quicker
tban any other plan.
As a member of the county school
board for fourteen months I heard
many plans discussed for the relief
of Lakeland special school district,
all of which were rejected.
N'ow It seems it is the time to
get together , atop bickerings and
make at once a long step forward In
the interest of progress.

SEEK TO DISSOLVE
Trenton. March 3. In a rfvll
anti-trust suit file, here today, the
government peeks the absolution of
the alleged thread trust attempted
monopoly by the Coats Interests, a
Great Britain and American thread
comphny, seeking the consolidation
of fourteen American companies.
What Lakeland Has Done and Is Yet
to Accomplish as Noted by
the Tampa Tribune.
Today the Tampa Tribune issued
its Polk county edition and we
reproduce a portion of the write-up
given Lakeland, which sUows the
impression an outsider has of the
best town in Florida:
Few cities of its size in the Unit
ed States can point to a building
record in 1912 that will equal that
of Lakeland. Nearly a million dol
lars is represented in the new build
ings that were constructed last year
in and adjacent to the city and the
piospects for 1913 are that the for
mer records will be surpassed. Over
300 new residences were built last
year, some costing well up in five fig
ures, and the average being conserv
atively estimated at $2,000. This
gives a total value of new homes
erected during the year, in round
numbers, of $600,000.
For the list of new buildings and
figures upon other improvements
mentioned, the Tribune is indebtei
to O. C, Itogan, one of the progres
sive and well informed real estate
men of Lakeland. He mentions the
following buildings, with their esti
A. C L. passenger station.. J 3f.ifil
lixpre Co. building 10,000
ltofrigerat.iiig plant 100,000
Hardin building 15,000
Doen & Bryant building... 2.'.,000 :'
(entry & Futch building.. 10,000
Skipper building 15,000
Lakeland Highlands Club. . 50,000
City Cafe 7,000
Citrus F.xohange building.. 10,000
Stephens apartments 15,000
At the present time work is pro
gressing upon several large build
ings, one being a new "fireproof ho
tel which will cost complete about
$125,000. Another splendid struc
ture soon to be erected is the new
city hall, the old building having
been torn down last week. More
than fifty new residences are nni
built at the present moment and two
new warehouses and two bottling
plants are to be erected Immediately.
One construction company reports
contracts in Lakeland aggregating
$150,000 In new buildings and all
o! these are to be erected during the
curly part of the present year.
In public Improvements also Lake
land is taking the lead. Work Is
now being done on the system of
paved streets for which a bond Issue
was recently authorized by an elec
tion. Practically every street is to
be paved, brick being used in the
business districts and asphalt block
on most of the residence streets.
Along with the streets will be laid a
complete sewerage system and when
these improvements are completed
Lakeland will take front rank
among progressive Florida cities.
All lines of legitimate business are
represented here by a class of aa
ntgn-minded men as can. be found
anywhere, and the class of good
that are handled are of a quality to
reflect credit on much larger places
than Lakeland. The professional
men are on an equally high taaia
and altogether there seems to be a
spirit of progressiveness that per
vades the entire community, which
la a source of constant pride to t-B
elty. The railway facilities are of
the very best. The great Atlantic .
Coast Lines have made a center herej
for their entire system In the State. "
There are twenty-seven passenger
trains arriving and departing front
the handsome new depot dallr.
frce shops are located here and tfce
monthly pay roll of those employed
in the movement of trains and the
general work of construction and ac
tivities of such large system, add in
no small degree to the prosperity of
