The National Editorial, Association
was organized In 1885. Onco each year
the editors meet In convention, and the
rivalry that Is shown by the different
sections to secure the conventions
seems to bo second only to that experienced
In locating the conventions
of the two great political parties. Perhaps
?the most plMsant of these annual
outings was ?e one Just held in
St. Augustine. Florida. This convention
was composed of about 400 delegates.
many of them being accompanied
by -their wives and daughters.
Nearly every state a.nd territory 4n
the union was represented. The Hlnery
was admirably arranged by Secretary
l4ige. The delegates west of the Ohio
river went by special train from St
Louis. The eastern contingent met at
. -The Metropolitan Hotel 4n Washington
and left "there Friday aCternoon, January
17, Jn a special train of four Pullman
coaches with one baiggage car.
One car waa filled by New York state
delegates headed by Frank B. Garrett,
of the Syracuse Times, ("Papa") whom
everyone was glad to know. The New
England states were allotted one car.
Pennsylvania delegates filled one car,
their delegation being the kirpe.it at
tl?e oonvention. It was headed by
State Senator Thomas V. Cooper, of
Medio, Who was collector of -the port
of Philadelphia under President Harrison,
and for many years chairman of
the State Republican Committee; he
ds a firm believer in Quay and thinks
tie will be'the Republican nominee for
President; R. H. Thomas, of Medianicsburg.
who was elected president of
the association for the ensuing year,
his canvaa being in charge of Mr. 11.
P. Snyder, of the Connellsvllle Courier,
who was accompanied by his ihnndsome
wife, and they <lo say that many votes
were won to Mr. Thomas by Mrs. Snyder's
charming manners; John K. Ewlng,
Jr., of IJniontown, Pa., who was
the life of the whole party, and many
otiher prominent people whom epace
prevents me from mentioning. The
fourtft oar was filled with delegates
from West Virginia, Maryland and
Virginia The West Virginia contingent
were: W. S .Wiley, of New Martinsville.
who was designated by Secretary
Page to take charge of the eastern
contingent. a:ul he was complimented
by everybody for his splendid
arrangement of owry detnll; Coi._C. L.
Smith and wife, of Fairmont: t. ji.

The spectal was run over the Pennsylvania
road to Quantlco.where it was
taken by the Rlohmond. Fredericksburg
& Potomac Railroad to Charleston,
S. C. A stop of one hour was made
at Richmond for supper. The next
morning at S o'clock we reached Savannah.
Georgia. having passed
through the states of North and South
Carolina during the niglrt. Breakfast
was taken at the DoSoto hotel, a grand
structure occupying an entire square
and oosting over $1,000,000. Th<* forenoon
was sptt?t In driving around -this
bea-utlful southern eky and In a trip to
the far-famed Bonaventure Cemeteries.
Here stretch oi>t long avenues
lined wVch live oak trees covered with
ehe graceful Spanish moss artistically
and effectually displayed by nature's
master hand, drooping almost to the
carriage top. Impressing one as certainly
a<n ideal resting place for tihe
dead.
We left Savannah at 2 p. ni. Saturday.
Our train had been taken in
at fh.irk?jtnn bv Col. B. W,
"Wrenn. jreneral traffic manager of the
, Plant System of railroads, which Ineludes
over **,000 miles In South Carolina.
Georgia. Alafbama and Florida,
with direct nteamer oorvneotions to
Cuba and Jamaica. We stopped ar
Suwanee Sulphur Springs for supper.

located on tihe banks of the famous
Su-wance river.
After .supper the large dining room
waa cleared and two "hours -were spent
In dandng to the music of a celebrated
colored orchestra. Here we were to
meet the we.tem contingent, but owing
to some delay, -they did not arrive ami
At midnight -we apt In took the train
for Tampa, where we arrived Sunday
morning. Tampa Is a city of 21,000 Inhabitants.
It Is the terminus of the
Plant System of railroads on the west
coast of Florida and the port for loading
the steamers.
"When t#ie railroad reached Tampa In
1884 the population was only S00. The
principal reason for this steady Increase
has been the establishment of
cigar factories, t'he first one being located
here in 1885. Now there are 12T? factories.
employing over 5.000 hands,
mostly Cubans. The yearly internal
revenue collections amount to $200,000
and t.he custom receipts are JGOO.OOO annually.
A visit to one of these large factories
is full of Interest. 'You will And from
three to four hundred Cubans of all
shades and color seated at their tables
itontly plying their trade. In the centre
of the room, elevated on a rude pulpit,
a man Is reading aloud to these workmen.
He roads eight hours a day,
four in the morning and four In the
afternoon. He is an educated Spaniard,
reads In the native tongue und chooses
his own matter.' At intervals he
pauses to allow -his hearers to comment
upon what they have hettrd. Kach
o#flhe three or four hundred workmen
pays a cent a day for this oral instruction.
The Tampa Hay Hotel, the crowning
effort of Mr. II. R Plant, the president
of the Plant System. Is located on
the banks of the Hillsborough river, in
the centre of a park <?f ir.n acreii of
grove*, avenues, gardens, fountains,
bridges and water ways. It Is certainly
one of the grandest structures ever
designed for a winter resort, over 1,200
feet long, four stories high, each room
an outside room. The Interior Is furnished
and decorated In the most exquisite
taste. The furniture Is mostly
Inportcd. There are cablntes, paint .

to make the Tampn Hay Hotel ono
of the most luxurious and attractive
public places of abode on the American
continent.
Shortly nfter our arrlvnl here the
western continent came In 300 strong.
The forenoon wan fipcnt In renewing old
ncfiiialntiinces and meeting new
friends. On our arrival here n sporty
looking Individual circulated through
the crowd and Invited us all to attend a
cock fight that won to be ''pulled off"
near the hotel In the afternoon. 1 f<
wis followed by a minister who Invited
all to nttend a meeting of the Brotherhood
of St Andrews. I do not think
either met with much success. ns the
majority of the visitors either took the
train to Tampa Buy. nine miles awny,
to see the arrival of the steamer Olivette
from Culm, or a yacht ride on the
beautiful Hillsborough river.
The next morning, through the kindness
of Colonel Wrenn, the ntearner
Oil volte wua placed at our dlspoaaJ for
a ride of twenty miles down the bay tc
the Oulf of Mexico. This excurslor
proved one of the most pleasant on oui
trip. Refreshments were served on the
boat, whllo Havnna cigars of the best
quality woro freely passe J around. Cuptain
Handlan. of the Olivette, opened o
box of cigarettes ho had brought from
Cuba especially for the editors and
everybody for once smoked clgarettei
without being ashamed of themselves
At 4 o'clock In the afternoon we returned
all with the avowed Intention of
making a trip to Cuba with the jolly
Captain Ilandlan.
At 8 o'clock Monday evening we left
Tampa for St. Augustine, whore tin
convention was to meet, and where we
were to spend four days. We arrived
at. 0 o'clock the next morning. Great
preparations had been made for our reception,
a committee having met us ut
Jacksonville.
The Alca&ar hotel having been made
the headquarters of the association,
most of the delegates stopped there, but
a number took advantage of tlw? low
rate ofTercU on this occasion oy me
Ponce de Leon, which In known as one
of the finest hotels in the world. A
number also stopped at the Cordova.
1 will not attempt to describe the
three hotels, the Ponce de Leon, Alcazar
and Cordova, bpllt by Mr. Flnglcr,
the muItl-mllllonalre, Standard oil and
railroad num. lit- must have seen ?
wonderful future for St. Augustine
when he converted the low swampy
ground surrounding the old town Into
beautiful lawns and built thereon these
palacra of stone tlmt can only be appreciated
rightly by seeing them.
The local committee had prepared an
elaborate programme for the editors
and our four days sojourn there was
very onjoynbly spent. The meetings of
the association were held In the assembly
room of the Cordava, and while
very Interesting, were made as short ati
possible. A reception and lunch given
by the ladles of St. Augustine at Old
Fort Marion, a dinner nt the Pouoe De
Leon, a dance at the St. Marco hotel,
dancing and bathing at the Casino, an
oyster roast on the ocean beach on
Anasta^ia Island, a visit to the light
house, the celebrated Coqulna quarries,
from which was taken nil of the coqulna
or shell roek with which the fort,
sea wall and old Spanish houses of St.
.Augustine were constructed, the old
slave market, the cathe<!ral. the beautiful
memorial Presbyterian church
built by Mr. Hauler, and many other
places of Interest served to make the
four days stay St. Augustine very
pleasant ones to all the visitors.
Up until a year or so ago St. Augustine
was the Mecca for all northern people
who went to Florida to eseap*- the
cold winters of the north, but Mr. Flakier
has found that his investments
there have been paying and has extended
his railroad on down along the
coast for 200 miles to Fort Worth. Saturday
morning we left St. Augustine.
The we#tern train hnd l>een attached to
our?, making a solid train of fourteen
Pullman and two baggage cars. We
lyere scheduled to stop two hours at
Daytona, a town of 1.200 inhabitants,
beautifully situated on the banks of the
Halifax river, about ?lxty miles south
of St. Augustine. The citizens were out
In force to meet us with all kinds of vehicles
from the common farm wagon to
the tally-ho coach, or If you chose, a
bicycle.'
I was struck by the number of wheels
and on inquiry was Informed that over
500 bicycles wen' owned by the 1.200 residents.
It certainly was an Ideal place
for a wheelman. The two hours ride
was delightrul and I think Daytona Is
destined to be one of the finest resorts
in Florida in the near future. A ride of
half an hour brought us to Ormond.
where we were to spend Saturday night
and part of Sunday. The Hotel Ormond
is located on a peninsula between
the Halifax river and the ocean and Is
surrounded by beautiful drives. The
time here was spent in boating on the
river, driving and strolling on the ocean
bench, which stretched out for twenty
miles along the coast, as smooth as a
lloor. Sunday at 1! p. m. we started for
Palm Beach, -50 miles further south,
which we reached at 9 o'clock In the
evening. Here, to my mind, we found
the garden spot of Florida. The Koyal
Polnclana Hotel Is situated on a narrow
strip of land, from one-fourth to
one-half mile wide, lying between the
ocean and Lake Worth, and surrounded
uy Rrovn ui irupicui iruiis uimi |>uiuu*.
The grounds, a* well as every one of
th?* ooo rooms, wu brillantly lighted
with electric lights and looked. us we
crossed the bridge over the lake, like an
enchanted castle rising in the midst of
fairy land.
The train stepped rlpht at the entrnncf
of the hotel and the crowd-of 600
were all comfortably located in their
rooms within fifteen minutes.
This hotel was built on the completion
of the railroad to Fort Worth in 1K94,
and I was informed the tlrst winter
was so crowded with guests that Mrs.
riyases Grant slept on n cot In the parlor.
Last summer the Palm Beach
Inn, u fine hotel of 350 moms, was built
to accommodate the increasing demand
for this winter. Here we iirst saw the
oranges growing on the trees. The
heavy freeze of last winter almost entirely
wiped out the orange trees of
Florida. We passed hundreds of groves
where the old trees had been killed by
the frost, cut down to the ground and
now ones planted. It will be several
yen it before Florida oranges will bo
plentiful In the northern markets again.
It was a common occurrence to meet a
man who has moved Into one of tho
little towns and none to work at something
to tide him over until his orange
prove again puti? forth Its golden fruit.
The two days at Palm Beach were
very pleasantly spent In Ashing, sailing
on the lnk?\ bathing In the ocean
In n surf that rivals any on the Atlantic
coast. Standing on the ocean
beach the waves made by the Gulf
Stream can plainly be seen about a mil*
from the shore. The water here on tho
2f.th day of January was 71 degrees
Fahrenheit, and the atmosphere comparatively
as warm. Tho ground on
this narrow strip between tho lake and
oci-un has become very valuable, and Is
owned mostly by rich northern people,
who have built linn houses and snend
their winters here. Mayor Swift, of
Chicago, has one of the finest. We
visited the fnrm of fifty acres owned
by a Mr. Clark, of Pittsburgh. He paid
$58,000 for the place, and he has expended
as much more In Improving It.
On this place we found oranges, lemons,
bananas, cocoanut*. pineapples, as w?ll
as tomatoes and nil the smaller fruits
and vegetables, ripe and ready for us?\
I was Informed that .the Hoyul Polnclann,
open for guests from the 1st of
January to April 15 last year, cleared
Mr. Flagler over $60,000, but not satisfled
with this grand, achievement tho
railroad is being extended on south
through the Everglades, and next year
at IUscayne May, sovonty-flvo miles
further south, another grand resort will
be located. We left Palm Peach nil regretting
that our stay there could not
hove been extended.
Fifty miles north of Pnlm Peach la
located the pineapple belt of Florida.
Here at Kden we stopped for an hour
to examine n pineapple plantation. I
had the good fortune to meet here Mr.
John Sorensen. who left Wheeling
twelve years ago for the mining regions
In the west. Falling In this, six
years ago he located at Jensen, fifteen
miles south of here, with lens thou
tr.lU1 nnd It I..
and he says ho would not take iuo.oOfl
for hlit Investment to-day. The following
taken from a letter I have received
from Mt\ Horensen Mince my arrival
home will peril up* be Interesting:
JENSEN, FLA., Jan. 29, lfi9fl.
The culture of pineapples begins with
the clearing of the lund and planting It
with slips (a small shoot growing In
a ring around the base of the apple).
After the plants have taken root we
apply a little cotton seed meal as a fertiliser,
and later some more, so that
we give to nn acre about a ton each
year, ICIshteen montlm after plant lug
they fruit for the tlrst time, ami then
every year( If well taken care of) for
ten or twelve yearn. They are kept
clean by using a scoflle or push hoe,
simply to keep out weeds.
The red Spanish Is the variety mostly
planted, and an acre will bring $400 to
1000 ii year, cif other kinds we have
the Sugar Loaf. Abncca, Hmutli Cay
cnne, Trinidad Ulood, Egyptian Quoc
' ISnvIl City unci many mori\ 1 havo

these will frequently grow to weigh 11
teen pounds.
Thero I* ono thing In fnvor of irrnwlt
plneapplus, and that Is. the very limit'
spuce of land on which they can I
grown. It begins about fifteen mil
north of this place. At Kden It l? le
than one-quarter rnllo wide, from 1
dlun river to lowlands, or Hat wood
At Jensen It Is three-quarters mile wl<
and then tapers out to nothing. The

A very good practical Joke was playi
on the Innocent editors at St. Lucie,
few miles above Eden, by a couple
northern men who were guests at tin
place. They had some Indians bring
a couple of Wagon loads of wild orange
which were pulled up In plain view
the train, and almost before the tru!
stopped the people were climbing ?V'
each other to buy what they thougl
to be the celebrated Indian river frill
which the Indians Hold as fast as tin
could count them out at 25 cents pi
dozen. After nearly everybody c
board had been supplied with from 01
to four dozen the train pulled out. Tl
oranges were not lit to eat. but ever:
body took the Joke good-naturedly, ar
our train looked like a southern Cal
fornln fruit train on exhibition.
At 10 o'clock p. m. we arrived at Jael
sonvllle, having stopped at Uockledg
a beautiful resort on the Indian rive
for dinner. At Jacksonville the nu
