Something is wrong. It is not possible to determine that PlattsSheetMain.mOne is not being used, so it shouldn't be deleted.

mOne is defined as package scope, so any other class in the same package as PlattsSheetMain would be able to call it, including code that wasn't in the Eclipse project but was bound to it at runtime. That wouldn't be possible if this method was deleted.
