PALATKA, FLA., MARCH 12, 1884. Tllli KXTItA SKSSIOX. Judge Hilton, of tlie Economist, accuses The News of "intimating" that there is no constitutional power vested in our legislature, paid or not, whereby money can he legally voted for the New Orleans show. The gentleman is entirely wrong; we take pride in saying that we never "intimate" anj'thing on such a question. We stated squarely our honest conviction that the governor had no authority to call an extra session for any such purpose; we stated just as plainly that if the legislature was convened we could see no power given it by which an appropriation for such purpose could he legally made, but we said also that if a ses sion was called, we did hope no member would hesitate to take lion est pay for services honestly per tormeu. Ji,ven though a session should be called without constitu tional authority, if it was convened under the forms of the law, we think each member would be enti tled to his mileage and per diem. We were satisfied Gov. IJloxham would not call the session unless he could legall' do so. If the legisla ture found itself convened illegally, we hope it would simply say the governor had exceeded his powers, and adjourn sine die, but even un der such circumstances each member would be entitled, in all equity, to his pay. We thought Gov. IJloxham would never call the session, because Ave believed it illegal; we think these extravagant appropriations by con gress and legislatures should be immediately stopped by vigorous protest from press and people, but honesty in public affairs is not dif ferent from honesty in private busi ness, where it is always allowed that service rendered is entitled to pav in good money. IJut despite the hue and cry led by such influential politicians as Dr. Harris and Senator Mann, Ave were never apprehensive that Gov. IJloxham would call a session unless it Avas authorized by law; conse quently Ave have never thought it necessary to give hard facts and the law, as Judge Hilton has done so convincingly. We are infinitely obliged to the Judge for his good opinion. We are. sure the people of Florida will thank him for his manly stand against a job, and Ave are convinced his exposition of the law "hath been most sound." CITY AFFA1I1S. The meeting on Monday night may be the beginning of the end, or it may amount to nothing. All present acknowledged the previous wasteful management of the public money, acknowledged our urgent need of a better police force,and spoke feelingly of the present danger to citizen and city, to life and proper ty b'o patent in such a condition of affairs. The. facts are beyond question, and the only thing iioav is to trans late conviction into action. If this may be done by the united action of our citizens, the future of our city is assured for just noAv she is on the high tide of prosperity Avhich leads to fortune. But her rivals are ea ger in the race. Palatka's marvel ous advantages cannot assure her position Avithout the intelligent action of her people, and if the ball of fortune once roll from our feet it Avill require hard effort and a long race to regain it. In vieAV of the probable call for a mass meeting by the committee just appointed, avc wish to urge the im possibility of a declination by any candidate named. If the committee works harmoniously, and the mass meeting can unite upon a ticket, the names must not be taken off for slight causes or press of business urged as excuse for services asked by our well beloved tOAvn. If Ave do our dutv, in her irrowth we shall all rejoice; if we fail her now in her time of trial, it must be for good cause plainly shoAvn. The gentlemen capable of uniting the elements of our population in such an effort as is iioav required are very feAv; our need is urgent, our duty plain. The men nominated must accept, and they must be elected. Our streets must be clean and order must be enforced. Our visitors must not be shocked by profanity at every cor ner. We must show them a town beautiful Avithout compare, "the Gem of the tit. John's." God has given the opportunity to make such a toAvn; let us not be recreant to I our trust. SAMlKIi J. UAXDALIi. There have been whisperings for some time, among the knowing ones in Washington, that Mr. Randall only waits an opportunity to move in concerted opposition with the re publicans of the House against any legislation Avhich may affect the tariff. It is stated that he Avill be sustained by thirty or more demo crats, and with their aid, supported of course by the entire republican party, will compass the defeat of any measure the tariff reformers may offer. It is also stated that should Mr. Randall fail to defeat such legislation, he w ill promptly withdraw from the democratic party. We do not believe these rumors. Widely as Mr. Randall differs from Avhat appears to be the ruling policy of the democratic party; disappoin ted, and consequently sore, as he must feel over his recent defeat ; yet his unsAverving devotion to the prin ciples of constitutional liberty; his vigilance against schemes for public plunder and private theft; his sleep less guard of every democratic trust Avhich has been given to his hands all forbid that we. should dishonor him with such suspicions. We predict that Samuel J. Ran dall will remain, and die, a devoted, consistent, and honored democrat. He can have naught in common Avith the republicans. The eagle mates not Avith carrion croAvs. TIIK FLOPJDA IIKK AI1. We learn from yesterday's Fieri da Herald that Ali YV. W. .Douglass, who has been city editor for some months, will hereafter devote him self to the state and other iicavs col umns. Mr. Campbell, formerly of the, IVnsocala Advance-Ua.ette, Avill assume charge of the city depart ment. The Herald is exceptionally intel ligent and fearless in its advocaev of all that redounds to the jdory and prosperity of Florida. Long may it prosper and rejoice in an ever increasing constituency of friends end admirers. We call the attention of our read ers to the fact that the Herald now reaches us on the day it is published. This makes it especially valuable to the business man in fact to all Avho Avish the very latest from the news and market centers of the Avorld. It seems to us that England is a little too previous in her request that Ave help her tight the dynami ters. The democrats at least should remember enough of Jefferson's Avarnings to beware of "entanijlino; alliances." When Ave had a civil Avar on our hands, she was verv careful to pay attention only to her own interests. There Avould be po etic justice in commending her sel fishness by our own conduct just iioav. Ochiltree and his like, Avith the apes of the aristocrats in con gress, may together be too man a for the wise to control, but our interests seek no outlet in that direction now. The New York agents of the Cu nard line received a cable dispatch Thursday stating that the steam ship Aurania had just completed a successful trial trip. Jshe ran from (-ilasgoAV to Liverpool, a distance of over tAvo hundred miles, in less than twelve hours. She attained during this trip a speed of 17 1-2 knots, or 20 1-2 miles an hour. With her new railroad and her ice factory, and a gas company and a Avater supply company, and last but not least, her new daily, Palatka can afford to rest on her laurels for one year. II.

TilK PHILADELPHIA TIMES, lss-4. Thk Timks will enter upon the new year st ron ire r and more prosperous than ever be fore in its history-- more widely read and quoted, more heart ily commended, and more tiorcoly criticized, with a more complete or ganization, and an able ssi 1V of emit r i hi i tors and with the same inde)iendence and fearless ness that has made it successful and powerful in t he past. Thk Timks has no party to follow, no candi dates to advance, hut will meet every issue, as it has ever done, with consistent devotion to the riirht. to honest irovermnenf. and the pub lic welfare. And, while maintaining: its posi tion as t he leading .journal of Philadelphia, it will aim to lie continually inthe advanc) in all that can add alue to a newspaper. The value of a newspaper is not in its size or display, hut in the inlelliirenco and care, the conciseness and freshness with which it is edited. Thk Timks spends lavi-hly for news from ail parts of the world, but all its dis patches are carefully edited and condensed, in order to ffive the complete news of the day in the mot concise a ml at t ract ive shape, and wit h if a larfre variety of cntortaininir and instruc tive readinir.
