REGISTERED AT THE PALATKA POST OmCE as Second-Class Mail Matter. PALATKA, FLA., APRIL 25, 1884. We have received the State Trea surer's report for the fiscal year en ding December 31, 183, for which we return many thanks. The Orange Ridge Echo, of De Land, advises the Republicans at Chicago to nominate Blaine and Lin coln. The editor then proceeds to tell us "how to make candy." Won der if his advice to the enemy was "taffy." The Pensacolian think the propo sition to give Florida a new consti tution eminates from the brains of ''growlers and howlers." As we do not consider ourselves as belonging to either class, we answer only by allowing the editor to state his own views. "If the Governor of theState of Florida has the power of appointing and fillino; the various State and County officers, it must be remeni bered that he makes his own appoint ments upon the representation and recommendation of the member of the Legislature from whatever county the appointment is asked for; and, this, when it is not forgotten that a majority of the people elect those representatives to the Legisla ture, should satisfy a Democratic people that they have what they want and should cease this constant asking for less. If a member of the Legislature happens to be a Radical it is not on his recommendation, but on that of the Chairman of the Democratic Executive Committee in that county, that appointments are made." But it has hitherto been consider ed best fo- our people that a ma jority should rule; not a party. The Governor makes his appointments where his supporters cannot elect a member of the Legislature on the recommendation of the Chairman of his partisans ! ! It would be much better if he relied on his own judgement. A MATTER OF MONEY. We had a long interview on yes terday with Commissioner Sebring, in which he reviewed his work and gave us the present status and pros pects of the Florida exhibit at the New Orleans Exposition and we cannot do better than endorse most heartily the following words of the Floridian: "The Exposition interests of Flor ida in their present aspect are not cheering. Other states have ample funds, partly appropriated and part ly subscribed, for carrying on the work of appropriation, while lack of a general fund in Florida threatens to paralyze, and even suspend entire ly the earnest efforts which many individuals are making. Even sin gle firms abroad are prepared to ex pend for business display more than the amount required to encourage the progress of the work in which our whole State is interested. We caanot believe that Florida will make a failure in extent and charac ter of exhibit even in comparison with sister States whose Commis sioners are supplied with what we lack; but we cannot estimate them without it without money, and pre cious time is being lost in consider ing ways and means of raising it. This delay discourages those who have begun work and deters others from commencing. It is known that money will be needed, and its ex penditure should be soon begun, to fit up the space in building and pre pare the garden assignment in the Exposition grounds; that it will be needed to pay for the removal of products to lines of transportation, for their care in transit, and for han dling after arrival in New- Orleans. Money Yf ill be needed to pay com petent persons to take charge of ar ticles as they arrive and care for them, to pay for the services of a botanist who should be now in the field, and money should be furnish ed to pay the expenses of Commis sioner Sebring who is giving his whole time to the work and meeting all charges from his own pocket. Of course, the exposition business cannot remain long in this condition of financial uncertainty without re sults being injured, and even partial success imperilled, and the question is what is to be done? The only course seems to be that public spirit and State pride must assert them selves for their cash value, and a general subscription throughout the State make up the required sum. The local organizations could solicit subscriptions in their respective counties, a part to be used in their own work and a part to be contri buted to a common fund to be dis bursed for the interest of all in the uses to which we have referred above. But this general subscrip tion is uncertain, and now is the time when some generous capitalists might step forward and make for themselves records which would be as monuments, for Florida could not forget that she had citizens who did with open hand all that other States accomplished by force of le gal enactment; that their free-offerings balanced the sums of appro priated tax money in other common wealth." MEMOR IAl7oF"ALEX. STEPHENS Why Gen. Toombs Refused to Sub scribe for the Purchase of Liberty Hall. Augusta, Ga., April 21. The move ment to purchase the home of the late Governor Alex. II. Stephens, popularly known as Liberty Hall, for the purpose of converting it into a memorial school, which seemed to lag, has gained new life by recent events. Atlanta is ambitious of having the house in which the ex Governor so long lived moved up to that city, and for the purpose, it is said, the directors of the Atlanta Library Associa tion intend to bid for the property and move the house to the new suburb called Peters Park, where it will be endowed as the Historical Hall of Georgia. It is also known that George "VV. Childs of the Philadelphia Ledger, has written to the original Memorial Committee offering to subscribe $300 if the rest of the fund, $23,000, is made up. Gen. Toombs was approached the other day for a contribu tion, which was confidently expected, and he gave a very gruff "No" for an an swer. In utter astonishment the can vasser asked why. "Because," said Toombs, "I want the people of Georgia to buy the property, and when they do, I will endow it with enough to make it such a college as little Aleck would like to see there if he were alive." The probability is, however, that At lanta parties will purchase the mansion for the purpose indicated. Extra Padlocks Needed. New York Sun (Ind.). When the organs of the navy ring be gin to talk about the national honor, our defenseless condition of the seas, the in feriority of our fleet to those of second rate powers like Spain and Brazil, it is high time to put extra padlocks on the doors of the Treasury vaults. The coun try has learned this maxim by costly ex perience. If we are not safe from sud den humiliation by reason of our naval feebleness ; if we are practically defense less on the seas to-day ; if our ships of war are not fit to contend with those of Chili or the Argentine Republic, much less with the war vessels of the great European j towers ; if, in short, we are without a navy, it is because this cry has been used in the interest of a rascally band of public plunderers. Growing Beautifully Less. New York World (Dem.). Nearly 82, W0 votes were counted for Garfield in this city in 1SS0. The full Republican vote is probably 03,000. On the reorganization which re-elected John J. O'Brien, the head of the Repub lican organization and boss of the ma chine, about 30,000 votes were cast. At the election of delegates who are to nom inate a candidate for President of the United States less than 8,000 Republicans voted, and they were nearly all drummed up by the machine ! What a nice repre sentative party this is, and how proud the old Republican guard must be of having Johnny O'Brien's 8,000 hench men help to select a Republican Presi dential candidate for them to vote for ! Should Reduce the Tariff. New York Herald (Ind.). If politicians and the leaders of labor movements could recognize what is for their own interests they would seek to aid labor by relieving it from the many burdensome and unnecessary taxes which now oppress it. Wages have been stead ily falling since lSs-, but the burdens of tariff Lives Inm -,- .1 ;,-,j-.it-t-.. j iiuv utiiiiiiioiic-u.

The Ti.mks will enter upon the new year stronger and more prosperous than ever be fore in its history more widely read and quoted, 'more heartily commended", and more liercely criticized, with a more complete or ganization, and an able ssoff of contributors and with the same independence and fearless ness that has made it successful and powerful in the past. The Timks has no part v to follow, no candi dates to advance, but will meet everv issue, as if has ever done, with consistent devotion to the riyrht, to honest government, and the pub lic welfare. And, while maintaining i posi tion as the leadinvr journal of Philadelphia, it will aim to be continually in the ndvanco in all that can add value to a newspaper. The value of a newspaper is not in its size or display, but in the intcllijfence and care, the conciseness and freshness with which it is edited. The Times spends lavishlv for news from all parts of the world, but "all its dis patches are carefully edited and condensed, in order to uive the complete news of the day in the most concise and attractive shape, and with it a larjre variety of entertaining- and instruc tive reading. The lxt writer,' at home and abroad are employed to enrich its columns, ami to make it a journal adapted both to the busy man and to the leisure of the home cir cle, a welcome visitor to inteiliRent and honest citizens of every political, religious and social taste. The Weekly Times is altogether different from the weekly newspapers of twenty years airo. The day of those papers have Kone by. The telein'uph and better local newspapers everywhere, especially in the thriving centres of rural population, have made the old weekly metropolitan newspaper unsatisfying. Those that clinir to their ancient usages have lost their hold on our forward-moving- people; they are out siuoiows oi rneir iormer trreatness, ami t!u'' have t,ut a shadow of then-former power. Those papers have had their usefulness, but it is ftone: and. with it, they are proinr, too. It was not the fault of the papers: it was the im provement of the country that brought about the chance. .Men an-i women, wherever thev live, now require fresher news: and they re quire more than news. The Weekly Times gathers off the tyies of every passinc week whatever has lastinsr in terest to the people at lanre, and sets it before them in such cenerosity of pajer and print as would have astonished us all twenty yeorsago.
