THE MAJOR'S BIRTHDAY Volusia county has just passed through one of the most notable murder trials in its history. The scene of the murder was DeLand (its first murder in twenty years) It was unfortunate that such afoul biot should be placed upon the name of the moral town of De Eand. And yet, when we say that this murder was instigated and carried through by those who favored whiskey in th j town, no one is surprised. Six negroes, a tough whiskey drinking, whisky selling gang, slew one of their own color for reporting certain blind tiger cases. The trial lasted a week and resulted in the sentence of the six murderers to hard labor for life. The Star desires to congratulate the people of Volusia county upon their prompt action. Whiskey has received a blow in the removal of these "toughs" from which it will not recover. We will say also, that the con viction of the murderers was due to the splendid abilities and inde fatigable efforts of the Hon. Judge Beggs, of Orlando, the State's Attorney. His praises are sung on all sides for the bril liancy with which be conducted the case. Of Judge Beggs' speech the News says: ' He talked for two hours, which quickly passed. It would do him nn injustice to endeavor to give a synopsis of his talk; it was worthy of reproduc tion in whole or not at all." Judge Beggs has long been known m the State as one of the firmest lawyers we have, and woe be the evil-doer who falls into his hands. Judge Brown, who presided, was, of course, as he always is, the ideal judge. These re the trials which are the death-blow to 1) nch-law. And these are the sort of officials which give the people confidence in their courts of justice. 1 Mr. John B. Stetson, although I We received a marked copy of his losses by last winter's freeze j an Ocala, FJa , paper this week n w T W climbed into the neighborhood of half a million dollars, has not tired of his good deeds for the University which bears his name. He is now fitting up an athletic ground for the students. This will include a circular bicycle track of a quarter of a mile, ten nis courts, base-ball field, etc. The work of grading and paving (with shell) is being pushed rapidly, and soon the students of Stetson Uni versity will have the best athletic grounds in the South connected the same with an institution of learning. ; chief of the telling all about how Major Camp bell celebrated his thirty-ninth birthday and bow he gave the band a good time. From the ac count we made up our mind that the major was a great fellow and must be some pumpkin?, but just what interest we had in the item we did not understand. But careful perusal revealed the fact that the major wis superin tendent of the water works-, and then we remembered that he wss i tJ tt -a atcnes. Jcwcirv AND - OPTICAL - GOODS.

While the mind is well cared for at the university, the body is not neglected, Special hours are given students in which to exer cise physically, and the athletic ground is but an addition to excel lent facilities already possessed by the University to create a strong body along with sound mind. In addition to this gift, Mr. Stetson's two lads, John and Henry, have rhewed a disposition to walk in the illustrious footsteps of their father. Accordingly, they have authorized President Forbes to purchase stereopticons, togeth er with views of scenes from nil the places visited by him in his travels in Europe and the Fast. The Star desires to congratu late the University and the youth ful contribution, and especially Mr. Stetson in the possession of these two fine boys. May the father's happy life be long and prosperous, and may the boys be come more and more like our benefactor.

Although an admission fee of 25 cents was charged, the lecture was the best attended of any of the lectures yet given by this ora tor in our city. He took for his text the bright side of life, how to make home happy, popping the question, court ship, and other interesting sub jects. During the entire lecture the au dience was held spellbound by his eloquence or convulsed with laugh ter by his wit, and every one was sorry when it closed. Mr. Beauchamp deserves the praises of the entire city for the good work he did while here: and may he soon return to give us an other oratorical feast. J. M.
