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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

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

successful trial trip. Jshe ran from

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.

not least, her new daily, Palatka can
afford to rest on her laurels for one

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

in t he past.
Thk Timks has no party to follow, no candi

it has ever done, with consistent devotion to
the riirht. to honest irovermnenf. and the pub

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
