THERE seems now to be little
probability that there will be an
international yacht race for the
Americas cup this year The un
derstanding is that Sir Thomas
Lipton will challenge for next year
Whether Watson or Fife will de
sign his vessel is a mooted question
THE Gainesville Sun is of the
opinion that justice in Florida costs
more than it isworth and that our
court expenses are altogether too
high The Sun is as usual emi
nently correct and the evil to which
it has drawn attention is one that
cannot too soon or too completely
be rectified
A great electrical power plant is
being constructed at Niagara Falls
on the Canadian side of the
river It is proposed to transmit
the energy across the river to the
American side by wire Now the
question arises should the electric
ity be made to pay a duty as a for
eign manufacture
TilE steamship Lincoln owned
by the Florida East Coast system
has had her name changed and in
future she will be known as the
Martinique The Martinique sailed
from Jacksonville this week for
Nassau with a cargo of lumber
She will make one more trip from
Jacksonville and will then be taken
off and prepared for her winter
schedule between Miami and Ha
vana
THE Tampa Tribune advises the
people to make no debts this year
and says if you desire or need any
thing do not buy until you can
pay the cash for it Debt is de
pressing It makes people dishon
est If there was no credit system
how much better oil this world
would be A man who once nets
behind badly scarcely ever catches
up What is to be thought of a
man who goes on day after day
making debts with poor pro pct
and less intention of paying them
Is he any better than those who
obtain money or goods under false
pretenses
THE supreme court of Florida
has rendered a decision that sus
tains the railroad commission of
this state as will be seen by an
article under proper heading pub
lished elsewhere this week This
decision finally settles it that the
commission was right in requirm
that equal privileges be given to
the A V it 1V railway to the
Terminal station in Jacksonville
which was refused by the Termin
al company When the A V A
W was first refused terminal priv
ileges the matter was taken before
the railroad commission and that
body del detl that the petitioners
were entitled to admission to the
terminal sheds upon a quarterly
payment of 81250 Demand was
made on the Terminal company
for the said privileges and the
same was still refused The ease
w was then taken before Judge Call
ji on mandamus proceedings and
f the writ was denied The railroad
commission then came to the res
tha cue of the petitioners and the mat

Serious Question For the South I
The action taken by the new ag
ricultural society at Jacksonville a i
few days ago in unison with that
adopted by the beet sugar manu
facturers at Omaha is a step not
taken too soon for the reciprocity
plan of the Republicans to place
the West Indies in direct competi
tion with this state should be
fought with every available means
at every possible point
The reciprocity treaty pending
would allow sugar and other pro
ductions from those islands to be
admitted to the states at a reduc
tion in tarifi rates with the fur
ther provision that products from
Porto Rico be admitted duty free
Such a measure would extend
the trade of the manufacturing
states like New England at the
expense of those engaged in agri
culture like the south especially
where such productions as are
grown in the West Indies are raised
This question is full of impor
tance to the people of the south
and they should resist the passage
of the proposed treaties by every
means possible
The Orange Industry
A correspondent in the Jackson
ville Evening News takes a some
what gloomy view of the orange in
dustry in certain sections of the
state and seems equally incredu
lous us to the necessity of imposing
a duty on the West Indian fruit
His point of view however seems
untenable in both instances and
Editor McNamee is satisfied that
the business of orange growing in
Florida is today upon a more stable
business than ever before and that
nothing but unrestricted foreign
competition can now seriously im
pair its value to our people
At the time of the great freeze
five years ago overproduction had
so reduced the value of our oranges
that with the immense acreage
yearly coming into bearing there
was nothing before our orange grow
ers but an era of prices so low that
profit would have been impossible I
These conditions were immediately
reversed by the freeze and it is al
ready apparent that a few years
more will find Florida with an
orange crop comparatively small
bringing in a revenue as great as
a ever derived from a similar
source
Hut the soil and climate of the
West India Islands are such as to
render them dangerous rivals
should the tariff he either reduced
or entirely removed and at a mo
ment so critical in the development
of Florida characteristic industry
the entire state should act as a unit
upon a proposition so dangerous as
that which has been made in refer
< > iico to importations from Jamaica
and Porto Rico
IUKAT credit is due to Dr Por
ter our state health officer for the
admirable manner in which he has
controlled the fever at Miami and
prevented its spread outside the
limits of that city Now that the
tvver is a thing of the past we feel
that the state ought to realize how
much was at stake under the im
mediate control of tht state health
ollicer Miami has not been an
isolated case in this respect The
sann has been true at Tampa IVn
< acola and Key West where the
fever has been controlled at differ
ent times by the state board of
health State control of health af
fairs is something tile people should
look after National legislation
that would do
away with state con
trol would he very detrimental in
our opinion to the welfare of our
tat Let the state take the lead
in these Hairs and its elloris to be

ADVERSE REPORT ON QUAY
But the Main Fight on Seating Him Will
Be In the Senate
The senate committee on elections has
decided the Quay case BO far as action
of that committee can decide it The
majority report will be against him
There are nine members of the com
mittee and five of them are Republicans
Of the Republican members four are in
favor of giving Mr Quay a seat under
the governors appointment but Mr
Burrows of Michigan takes the contrary
view When the formal reports are
signed his name will appear with those
of Messrs Pettus of Alabama Harris
of Kansas Caffrey of Louisiana and
Turley Tennessee against seating Mr
Quay while Messrs Chandler of New
Hampshire Hoar of Massachusetts
Pritchard of North Carolina and MiCo
mas Maryland will sign the minority
report The resolution upon which this
action was taken is at follows
Resolved That Matthew S Quay be
admitted as a senator from the state of
Pennsylvania in accordance with his ap
pointment made on April 21st 1899 by
the governor of said state
The fact of a majority of the committee
being against Quay does not however
have any material bearing upon the
case This adverse report has been
counted upon from the first The fight
will be fought out in the senate without
reference to the committees report just
as similar fights have always been fought
Senator Quays supporters talk very
confidently of their ability to seat their
man even in the face of this adverse re
port and the general opinion seems to
be that Quay will be seated
liewure of Convention Sharpers
From The Palutka Advertiser
Congressman Robert W Davis has
written a per = oval letter to the Adver
tiser which we take liberty of publishing
Our Bob has simply misconstrued our
editorial under the above caption which
we still adhere to We take great pleas
ure in reproducing his letter which is at
least characteristic of the man in his zen I
to be generous to his opponents The let
ter is as follows
Washington Dec 50 1899 Editor
Palatka Advertiser 1 am going to ask you
to let me express u friendly difference
with your editorial of last week headed
Beware Convention Sharpers I want
to fay that although Mr Clark and I are
opposing candidates for the same Ofli l
our relations are entirely amicable friend
ly and pleasant Mr Clark is unques
tionably sincere in his published declara
tions of principles lie uttered the same
sentiments on the stump luring the last
and the preceding campaigns even
speaking in my behalf in my own city
We must not forget this Of those who
supported Senator Taliaferro in his nice
vith Senator 1asco some are now giving
me their sympathy and active support
some of those who supported Senator
Ia co are doubtless now in sympathy
with my friend Frank Clark We are
all Democrats together let us HJ con
tinue I say to yon frankly 1 had rather
lose my seat in rongrejs than be a bone
of contention in the Ir arty 1 entertain
no doubt that the mce between Mr Clark
and my elf will continue free from bitter
ness We will each Milnnit our names to
a Democrat convention and whatever
the convention says goes Sincerely
yours KoitKirr W DAVIS

HEAVY FIRE LOSS AT MIAMI
Incendiaries Started a Blaze That Coat the
Town 800000
Miami was visited by another confla
gration last Friday morning when fire
was discovered in the Budge building on
the corner of avenue D and Twelfth
street in the central part of the city
The flames spread rapidly and by 7 a
m three fine business buildings were a
mass of ruins involving a loss of nearly
60000
The fire was clearly of incendiary ori
gin and it is attributed to a gang of rob
bers who for some time have been exten
sively operating in that vicinity
The losses by fire with the insurance
are as follows Frank T Budge hard
ware and furniture 35000 insurance
516000 112 Lummusgroceries l2500
insurance 3000 Cohen Friedman
Co Ideal store 10000 insurance 2
000 Townley Bros 8000 insurance
1000
All the buildings destroyed will be re
built at once
The fact of incendiarism was proved by
showcase revolvers being missing after
time fire was discovered and later on a
number of the revolvers were found under
a school building The fire was first dis
covered by Mr 11 J Anthony who
