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
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
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
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
"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
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
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
Instead of providing for such sillv ven-
tures as the Blair investigation and a
liureau of Labor Statistics. fhnpTPsa

a decided aid to those now suffering
from the industrial depression.

THE PHILADELPHIA TIMES, 1884.
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
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.
