I have read your valuable paper for some time past, and am especially pleased with its utterances. I desire space to say a few words upon the topics of the day. On the 25th of this mouth the State democratic convention will convene at Penrfacola, Fla. lis work will be to select candidates and make a platform for the campaign of 1884. Now, then, I hope that it may exercise wisdom in selecting its planks. Some of them should declare emphatically 1. For a constitutional convention. 2. For clearer and ltetter school laws. 3. For more "local option" in taxation for pubic schools of tho State. 4. For clearer and better mumcinal laws. These are essential; hence, we all should go united in their favor. There are non-essentials, and we should show in all such non-essentials the full est extent of liberty. Why are we going to Pensacola, if not for the above ? Yours unitedly, II. Precinct No. J). iNTERLACnEN, Fla., June 10, 1SS1. Editor Palatka News: Pursuant to call of the Democratic County Executive Committee, the citi zens of precinct nine (9) met at the store of Grooms & Barbour, Interlachen. Fla. Juno 10, 1884, and elected the following delegates to the Democratic county con vention, to convene at Palatka June 11. 1884: DELEGATES. J F Woodlerry Mr. Buchanan Ley ton Morgan Lott Allen R L Walls M Padgett Signed. ALTERNATES. R O Douglas M L Adams E D Walker O II Parker A S Woodberry C C Barbour. C. C. Barbour. See'y Democratic Club. Dead. We regret to chronicle the death of the little girl of Capt. D. A. Dunham, which occurred at his residence, just opposite Palatka, on the other side of the river, on "Wednesday night. The child was about fifteen months old. It was buried in this city yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock, from the Methodist church. lion. A. Monroe, of McMeekin. was in the city yesterday. CITY NOTES. The steamer City of Palatka arrived last evening, bringing a large freight and few passengers. Dr. W. T. Sylvester, president of the Silver Springs, Ocala & Gulf Railroad, was in the city yesterday. He reports everything booming. One horse tried to make another run away yesterday by pulling an awning Iost across his back, but the horse was too lazy to more than pull ghimself from under the post. On next Sunday the J. T. & K. W. R. Ii., will run an excursion train for St. Augustine, Green Cove Springs and Jacksonville, for $1 for the round trip to either place; leaving Palatka at 11.35 a.m. The fires have been kindled, and the lolitIcal eau'dron will seethe and splut ter and splash until the elections are all , . i i i over and tne man wno uiwavs goes around with "I told you so" has had his say. Mr. B. F. Rolierts shipied from Fran cis station yesterday a car-load of fine melons for the Northern markets. This is the first extensive shipment of melons North we have heard of from this sec tion. In another place we print the proceed ings of the Democratic meeting in pre cinct 9. The report was somewhat late in reaching us, but we deem it of suffi cient interest to give it room in our col umns. A patent medicine advertisement reads: "Do you know what causes that extreme tired feeling?" Yes, alas we do, it is lis tening to tho man who conies in to tell us why he always thought Blaine would get the nomination. We call attention to the new advertise ment of Mr. I. Jaljobson to le found on our first page. He has an extensive bus iness, carries a heavy stock, his clerks are polite and gentlemanly, and offers goods at shortest possible profits. Give him a call. The journalistic walking match in Jacksonville Tuesday, developed the fact that some of the boys can walk, the winner scoring 57 miles in twelve hours, which was closely contested by two or three of the walkers. Mr. C. If. Ash mead was the whining man. By a notice in another column it will be seen that Mr. L. J. Ireland will here after have charge of Wm. F. Forward's hay, grain and commission business and ice warehouse. Mr. Ireland is a clever and competent business man, and the business will net suffer at his bands. Editor Henry M. Mcintosh, of the Al bany (Ga.) News, accompanied by his wife and son, were at the Westmoreland yesterday. He publishes one of tha livest little daily papers in the south, and wields a considerable influence in the affairs of our sister State. He left for St. Augus tine vesterdav morning, where he will spend a week or two. Messrs. Haughton Bros, had on exhi bition yesterday a vegetable curiosity in the shape of a squash which weighed sixtv-two and one-half pounds. It looks mot e like a huge pumpkin than a squash and it was only after a most solemn as surance by 'one of the lmys that the re M)iter would believe it was anything but a pumpkin. It was grown over the river on the Harding place, and is of the Hub bard variety. A soil that will grow such a squash, larger than an average pump kin, and twice tne size ot the average watermelon, cannot be called poor, for no where else under the sun can this veg etable be grown to larger size. The Jacksonville Herald says the ex citement at Mayport Tuesday night ran high as Dr. L'Engle'stug boat swept past the wharves with the schooner Wolston in tow. At three o'clock this leautiful schooner lay piled upon the sand lieach, apparently doomed to add another to the string of wrecks along this grave yard. Many regrets were expressed at her sad fate. At 8 o'clock cheer after cheer an nounced the A eiy pVasant news that the schooner was once more "a thing of life," and Mayport responded heartily, compli menting Dr. L'Engle upon the skill and pluck exhibited and suciess attained. The schooner was only a year old, and cost $'21, 000. She was not insured. This schooner got aground on the south beach just inside of St. Johns bar, on the 31st ult., while attempting to sail up the St. Johns river. She was bound from New York to Palatka with a cargo of brick and hav for W. F. Forward. The Military Call. A News reporter has been permitted to get a g'mipse of some of the gtnxl things the ladies ire preparing for the inner man at the ball to le given for the ben efit of the Gem City Guards, on the 17th inst., and he can assure the boys that they will be well fed. Cakes my ! how delicious they will be, and baked, too, lv the fair hands of the donors. And cake will not be the only delicacy there either, by a long ways. A long list of good things are being prepared, and they will be sold at prices that will not make one think he is is paying more than they are actually worth. Make your preparations to attend. Architect and Civil Engineering. Elsewhere this morning will be found the advertisement of Mr. If. J. Campbell, architect and civil engineer, to which we call attention. Mr. Campbell is one of the most competent and best known ar chitects and engineers in Florida, and his work gives general satisfaction. The plans of Alachua's new court house he has recently finished has excited general commendation. He is prepared to do any work in his line at short notice. His oftlce is in Griffin's brick block, Palatka. NATIONAL T BACKERS' MEETING. Routes and iTickels for the Great Gatherii g at Madison. The rate for an yierson to the National Educational As; 'ociation to Madison, Wis. and return, is S44.10; tickets are good for thirty d ays, from about July Cth, next. The first of the two routes is from Jacksonville via P?ns;icola,via Nashville, via Mammoth Cave, Ky. (including hack fare from Cave city of $1), via Indianap olis, via Chicago, to Madison, Wis., and return same way. The second route is from Jacksonville via Pensacola, via Nashville, via St. Ijouis, via Chicago and Alton railroad, via Chicago to Madison, Wis., and return same way. Purchasers to name route when they buy their tickets from Captain W. C. Coleman, of the Florida Central and Western railroad, or Captain L. R. Tut- tle, of the Louisville and Nashville rail road offices on Bay street, west of oppo site the Astor block in this citv. Please address postal to either of these gentlemen for railroad "folder" maps. nj one who wants a trip north can't do better than take this low rate if they in tend and want to see the great northwest and attend the National Teachers' Con vention. The visit to mammoth cave will be an especial treat, a.s also will be the i nn over the great steel bridge at St. Louis over the "Father of Waters," while the ride over the unexcelled Chicago and Alton will amply repay all who may avail thein of it. The Educational Convention will attract the leading educators of the coun try, and the discussion of opportune sub jects will lo varied and suggestive to .alert minds. The concourse will likely exceed 1,500. The Froebel Association meets July 10th to 15th prox, The Educational Association meets July 15th to 18th inclusive. Board in Madison will cost from $ to $2.50 per day. The convocation will be the most representa tive, perhaps, in its history since its or ganization in 1858. All the States will have delegates. Now let Florida be well represented. Hon. A. J. Russell, Hon. E. K. Foster and many others will prob aldy be there. For further information please address, J. S. Cowdon, St. Augustine, Fla., Gen'l Manager N. E. A. for East Fla. State Press please copy this article. Educational Views. St. Augustine, Fla. June 9th, 184. J Editor Palatka News. Tin's afternoon a gentleman, on the streets of St. Augustine, thanked me for my article in one of j our late issues, in which I detailed how some one pulled me down for my "high taxation" tune and worn out harp. Well it does my soul good to hear some pleasant words come in return for my "Educational Views' This gentleman said "we must have more money." Then I was talking in a few minut-js with thoughtful Judge M. R. Cooper,and he too was warm in the idea of better schools normal schools higher taxes, and in for investing money in schools so that for ten dollars so invested, fifty will return in the shape of increased educatio nal and hilxiring power. His theme and dress were so chaste and appropriate that I can't fail to place the fact leforo your widening circle of delighted readers. On all sides I find these ideas are meeting with warm re ception anil in the main a cordial adop tion. We all want better schools, better teachers, letter pupils, better patrons, bigger amounts of money. Friends in Palatka! Jacksonville! Sanford! Kissim niee! Tampa! and St. Augustine! the sands of time are running but the end is progress, I feel sure. More anon. Yours very truly, J. S. Cowdon. s. s. o. m a. Another Kailroad Itoom Election of Officers. On Monday, at Ocala. the stoc kholders of the Silver Springs. Ocala & Gulf R.R. held their regular meeting and elected the following corps of officers: W. T. Sjlvester president, Sam'l. Agnew vice president, N. R. Gnu lle secretary, A.W. Agnew treasurer. The road is now un der process of construction from Tampa to Silver Springs, and will run through a fine country, interspersed with rich hammock lands and dense pine forests. All things necessary for its early com pletion have been secured in advance, and the parties in charge are thorough! v competent and practical men of much experience. Ultimately the line will l,e connected through Gainesville with Macon, Ga., and by branch with Palat ka. Our citizens will thus have another fine country opened to them, and their energies will have to expand themselves in proportion to the new fields opened to their operations. Success to the new road and prosperity to the Gem City. Jay Gould's Preferences. Philadelphia Record dnd.K Jay Goukl cannot conceal his delight with the nomination of Blaine. If any thing couLl add to his joy, he intimates'! it would be the nomination of TiMen bv the Democrats. But what has Tiklen ever clone to earn the good will of Jay Gould ? Contingencies are likely to arise in the future, as in the past, when a President friendly to Jay Gould's inter ests might Ik? able to render him great service. But the interests of Gould and the interests of the public are generally in conflict. A Card. Having secured the services of Mr. II. J. Ireland, as clerk in charge of mv ice and grain business, I take the pleasure of introducing him to my customers and the public in that capacity. Courteous at all times, he will ever be found at his post ready to fill in an efficient manner, any orders for ice, hay, grain and lime intrusted to liim. I am grateful to the public for their patronage in tho past and hoie that an honest effort to give them value received for their money at all times, and at prices (either with or with out competition) lower even than Jack sonville, Fernandina or Savannah, has 1-een successful. In the future as in the past, the same'ourse will be pursued in my dealings with all. Wm. F. Forward. No Room lor Two Protect ive Parties. The New Haven Register (Dem.) quotes with strong approval an article from the Philadelphia Record (Ind.) censuring the Itandall democrats in Congress for their position on the tariff question, in which it is said: "If they were actuated by mo tives of principle in opposing tariff re duction and in .favoring increase of taxes as in the wool duties, then their tempo rary alliance with the republicans ought to be made permanent, and the demo cratic party should be relieved of all re sponsibility for their action in Congress. The relation of these bolters to the na tional democratic party are false and un natural. There is no room in Pennsyl vania, or any other State, for two pro tective parties. Between the luen in Congress and out of Congress who are opposed to the present tariff system and the men who defeated the Morrison bill the gulf is so wide and deep that no po litical engineer has skill enough to bridge it. The attempt may as well be aban doned first as last." H. J. CAMPBELL, ARCHITECT & CIVIL ENGINEER Plans, Specifications, Superintendence and Estimates For all Kinds of Buildings.
