Address, THK NEWS, PALATKA IfUiKlDA. PALATKA. FLA.. MAY 14. 1887. The Putt Matt Gazette baa abandoned its charge of plagiariaui against H. Ryder Ilaggard. The bBt refutation is afforded by the comparison between the "Epicu rean" -and "She" or by a careful re-perusal of "The Witch's Head." We are again invited to attend the meeting of the Southern Press Associa tion at Richmond, Va., on the lth inst., but we are satisfied to leave our interests in the hands of our brethren while we attend to nearer work at home. The t-ti may attend and be put into Harper Weekly again for all we care home praise is the best. Jefferson Davis' Hieech at Meridian ln not hear evidence of his quondam rhetorical ease and grace. Per haps the sight of warworn veterans like Col. Woods affected the tongue as well as the heart of the old chief , or perhaps age was too heavy a burden, or the re morseless wires tripped. But the scene was a touching one and the sentiments are freighted with the feelings of an elder time. When there is a fight or a homicide in a South Florida town the Timea-Liuon hastens to inform the public that life in that particular locality is unsafe and all are advised to give it a wide birth. The assault on "Capt. Zack" in Jacksonville was one of the most brutal ever known in the history of the State. Will the little editor take some of his own medi ine? What is sauce for the goose should not be pudding lor the gander. Ia the Cameos. The nsoal monotonous routine of humdrum work in the Democratic cau cus last night was broken by the sensa tional withdrawal of Mr. Pasco can didacy. To those who know that gen tleman the scene will readily repniiluce itself. His emotional nature was evidently deeply stirred, and his earnest manner made a strong impression on his excited audience. lie took occasion to give some good advice on the necessity of party harmony and he demonstrated anew his willingness to wait fr what the future might bring. Ilia declination was not unexpected, and the .late ballots show that his withdrawal liad been antici pated by his warmest supporters. In the new aspect of the case it is still more clearly evident tliat Itloxham has not even a remote cliance. We doubt if another dark horse can be prevailed upon to enter the field, and as Let ween Bloxham and Perry, the election of the latter is a foregone conclusion. The "mass meetings' which have been attempted in every section of the State were only a series of miserable, failures, and, even by the confession of their originators, have been shorn of all effect bv the remorseless light of truth let in upon them. They were the last hojie or a waning cause, which will follow them into the darkness of defeat. Sumterville has organized a Board of Trade with A. C. Clarke President and J. W. Hagan Secretary. We hope all these bodies will co-oierate with the Pa latka Board and then our united strength will become potential in all matters, financial or mercantile, affecting our common interest. South Florida only needs consolidation of effort and concert of action, and suitable arrangements for securing this should be perfected this summer by way of preparing for the next season. We all need judicious ad vertising anal the world could le in formed by means of a pamphlet in which all should have part tliat Florida does not lie entirely along the lianks of the St. Johns River. The richest and most beautiful portions of our State are as yet unknown to most of our casual visitors. Our Banking- Bill. Senate Bill No. 147, by Mr. McKinne, is one of the most important now engag ing the attention of the legislature. In its principal features it follows closely the model set out in the National Bank ing Act so far as this can apply to a statute of the State, and also in its de tails in great measure. A great advan tage is thus gained because all doubtful points have already been decided and much litigation will probably be avoided by reason of this prior adjudication. As a whole the Bill as proposed by Mr. McKinne is an excellent one, but the amendment which struck out Sec. 22 was an improvement suggested by prac tical knowledge and we would urge that the same fate overtake Sec. 23 wliich reads: Section 23. It shall be lawful for any banking association organized under this act. to establish branches or agencies of such banking- association in any city or town in this State, the capital being joint and assigned to and used by the mother bank and branches in definite propor tions; IVwuOif, Tliat public notice of not less than six months of the removal or discontinuance of such branch or agency shall be given, whenever the re moval or discontinuance of such branch or agency shall be contemplated." This establishment of an indefinite number of branches for which the mother bank is responsible may easily be "more honored in the breach than the observance," for it may become dangerous. It will be olserved that no check is prescribed on the exercise of this license, and the Comptroller is given no authority to interfere. The establishment of a bank wherever needed is made easy enough, and independent associations may be formed over which all the safe guards contemplated in the act might 1 thrown, whereas these "branches or agencies" seem to be, in a measure, outside the law. We would earnestly recommend the striking out of this section because it implies the exer cise of a discretion which may degenerate into a licensed abuse and lecome danger ous to the people or arouse vexatious litigation. If, in one respect the bill is too full, in another it is defective by reason of the omission of precaution which forms a prominent feature of the National Bank ing Act. Under the proposed bill one person, firm or association may borrow all the available funds in the bank. We would suggest that an amendment be of fered which would inconorate m tne bill the meaning and intention of Section 5200, Chapter IV, of the Banking Act which provides: "The total liabilities to any association, of any person, or of any company, corjxration or firm for money borrowed, including in the liabilities of a company or firm the liabilities of the several memliers thereof, sliall at .no time exceed one-tenth part of the amount of the capital stock of such association - actually paid in. But the discount of bills of exchange drawn in good faith against actually existing values, and the discount of commercial or business paper actually owned by the person negotiat ing the same, shall not be considered as " money borrowed."' A careful study of the bill as drawn by Senator McKinne has led to a warm approval of its provisions except as noted. The subject is a most important one, and we would invite the special at tention of business men thereto jo that additions or emendations may be sug gested before it ia too late. The Negro la Politics. The gift of the franchise to the negro was an exieriment Lincoln distrusted and from which the Southern people ex pected the most disastrous results. It is to the credit of both races that the solu tion of the problem 1ms been reached bo soon, ho peacefully and sc satisfactorily. At the North as well as in the South, the freed man was considered unworthy of the ballot when it was first placed in his hands the only difference between the opinions generally entertained in the two sections lay in the belief of the North tliat the negro's intellectual stature would grow to meet the demands laid upon it, while the South believed him only capable of mental and moral growth within certain narrow limits. The Iml lot was put in his hands by one jiarty le cause it was believed to be a defensive weaMn necessary to nis toimcai eii ence the measure gained the actmies cence of the other because all opjiosition had been crushed out with a heavy heel. But even to those who once held oppo site views, the proof of the capacity of the negro has now been amply demon strated. We knew him in chiUhoml and he was with us, the ooiujianion of all outdoor life. We knew him ten der, self-sacrificing and often brave, but it has been reserved for later years to furnish conclusive proof of cajiacity for business, politics and enterprise of which we once believed him incaable. To those who see him rarely there may lie little evidence of improvement to us. watching the development day by day the change is marvelous. During the first ten years succeeding his entire emanciiition from the control to which he had been accustomed for generations, the negro was the most help less Wing imaginable. Is it wonderful that hi simplicity was lietrayed, his igno rance made the tool of designing men, and his strength became dangerous? Only the power of endurance inherent in all our race made the situation toler able only tlie wonderful resources of the richest section under the sun made recuperation MMsible; much of the dan ger and trouble of the old time still clings to us the ghost of the dead tst still liaunts the sliadowy places of the present day. But the knottiest point of the problem has been solved it has been proved that the negro is capable of development in all directions and it is now certain that he will justify himself fur his assump tion of political responsibility before the bar of the future. lie is among us as farmer, merchant, mechanic and legisla tor, and- often his ability is more than respectable. Duval lias Representative Giblis in the Florida legislature and he has done good service. Alachua lias a colored citizen in the Senate whose first term has made a most favorable impres sion on his colleagues. It was this negro Senator, Martin, who so stoutly oposed Mr. McKinne's amendment to reduce the appropriation for the East Florula Seminary, and who. like most of the more intelligent sons of his race, ap(ears to think no sum extrav agant which is devoted to the cause of education. When it is rememliered that from the institution in question negroes are ex cluded.the breadth of purpose animating it negro cluimpion may be appreciated. Throughout the session Senator Martin lias proved himself a warm and intelli gent friend of his county's lest interests, and a sensible and consistent advocate of the cause of education. He lias not for gotten his own race in urging the loca tion of a Normal school for negroes at Gainesville, and, while the paiT which claims the highest rank in the State was boasting of the political victory of its white editor gained by wholesale pur chase of votes.this negro was quietly and thoughtfully framing a law to protect the ballot and guard the voter against the temptation of corruption. To virtue and intelligence we pay trib ute wherever jwe find it, and we take pleasure in citing instances to prove tliat it may hide in unexpected places and are proud to realize that it affords promise of a brighter future and wider usefulness to a whole race. On Its Apex. The official figures given yesterday in our article on "The Few vs. the Many" nave already occasioned remark and we would draw another lesson from them in support of our position. The Chief of the Bureau of Statistics for the State de partment finals the number engaged in agriculture foot np 7,870,493 and in manufactures, mechanics and mining 3, 837.1 12. Ijtxx than ticelce millijn tliere fore mut feetl, clotfie and trann the rent of w tliat is, each one of these pro ducers supplies the natural wants of five others in excliange for the gratification of his artificial or acquired tastes. Now, these producers must finally pay all taxes, and on them as the ultimate consumers, must fall the burden of all attempts to produce artificial markets. These join their strong shoulders to make the narrow &rx on which tlie pyramid of modern life and civiliza tion rests. Wliat is our gratitude in re turn? These have the least leisure fr the cultivation of body and sold the least opportunity to catch the echo of tlie voices freighted with wisdom which now sound throughout the world of all men they are everywhere the rear guard in the march directed ever on ward and upward characteristic of tlie age. How dues protection treat the farmer? He is forbidden to Iniy bis liat or his clothes or even the tools necessary to his daily toil where they can be found rhennest and best. Even his fellow worker, the manufacturer, is protected so that his iM ket is enriched from the labor of the farmer. Tlie pyramid stands on its ajex the farmer is the capstone and the burden un him is so great tliat only constant and unremitting exertion can save him from being crushed. He looks upward and sees those placed aUe him gratifying the fine instincts of a (Sod-given nature, and he yearns to satisfy the cravings put into his breast, likewise for the elevation of all the race. But the strain is upon him one moment of pleasure spent in pursuit of mental rec reation ami he finds he can no longer re sume even the oor place he has left. He is dest roved for lack of knowledge, yet he finds no leisure to fit himself with the weaiion necessary to the conflict into which he must plunge if he would alter his condition he is the nunlern Tantalus and the choicest fruits of the time liang lieyond his reach. It is because his antagonists have learned to "divide and conquer" that the producers are helpless. His fellows are taught to fear each other protection stejis in and offers a small lunula to each in consideration of a declaration of war on his brother. Manufacturers do not feel the burden of "protection" liecause each is given his share, but the dread weight of accumulated economical fal lacy falls on the helpless farmer as the twenty centuries of accumulated age crushed the strong "She" at lust in Hag gard's wonderful allegory. And now a sop is offered to the hread w inner if he will take his harvest and di vide tlie- wliole among his greet I y ira sites. Tlie farmer in Florida is offered protection" for his oranges if lie will grant "protection" to all others he is of fered a crumb if he will give up his loaves! He is first asked to 1 re lieve that increased taxation is the ian acea for verty then that he can gain by giving eight for one then that he must help himself by adding to the burden of other self proti-ction refuses him tlie right to buy in the ch-aest market tliat he grows rich by giving his gains to lie kejit in a common treasury that it is wise to take his working capital and hoard it. ami that the collection of a "surplus" is the proof of wealth and the guarantee of freedom! Ignorance is double-edged; the overty which excludes knowledge and leisure for thought engenders the simplicity which invites deception. The wonderful inventions of the age lessen the numlier of manual toilers, but the burden of the whole falls on the few who remain. Pro tection claims credit for giving slight re gard to his sugar or fruit, but gives still more to the manufacturer, the inventor or increased lwer to capital, so that the cent of gain must la? secured by paying out the dollar for a pretense, a delusion ami a snare. Protection is taxation our Constitution forbids taxation except for the legitimate needs of government how, then, can we have tajration for the nake of protection t THE EXPERIMENTAL FARM.

Our Legislature will soon take some action in regard to the $15,000 to la? set apart for agricultural exjieri merits in Florida. A strong effort is making to turn the entire amount over to tlm Agri cultural College at Lake City, and let the experiments be made under tlie di rections of the College. Tliat would be a sad mistake, and prove of no value whatever to tlie agricultural interest of the State. As a rule col legj professors are not comietent to run a farm. They may lie the best of teachers, and be of great value to literary circles, but when you put tliem in charge of a farm they are absolutely worthless. They have been trained for purely liter ary work, and have no more ada-tation for running a farm than a farmer lias for running a college. It seems to me that Prof. Pickel ought to la? able to re cognize this fact, for it has been fully demonstrated. When it comes to edu cating my boys I would be glad to place them under the care of the skillful pr fessor but wlien it comes farmers of tliem I would not cood Dutch farmer for all professors in America. This principle will Iiold good in every department of Ltbor and study. Farm labor and college study w ill not blend. By all means let us have a good college at Lake City, and let it be run by college professors. Tlien let us haw a good ex perimental farm run by a farmer. On that farm we want a farmer who will dedicate himself fully to the work; who lias been raised on a farm, and knows how to take hold himself, if necessary. Let every farmer in the State rise up and demand tliat the present Legislature establish an exerimental farm so tliat it may receive the f 15,000 offered for that purpose. If it goes to Lake City it will rove a dead loss to the farmers, for men who have a college on their liands have neither the time nor the inclination for farm work of any class. If the farmers throughout the State will push this mat ter we will certainly have the experi mental farm as an institution entirely searate from the college. Write the representatives from your county, stat ing tliat the farm is needed, ami tliat for the good of the agricultural interests of the State it should lie placed in charge of a good practical farmer.

Tlie London Timen has resumed its series of articles designed to show the connection between "Parnellism anil Crime" and it dives into the foggy dark ness of secret societies to prove its charges. All this may le 'strictly jiarliamentary but when we are asked to believe that the policy of Gladstone is prescribed by Patrick Ford ami the-heads of the Clan Na Gael then even the most omnivorous credulity instinctively hesitates. Public opinion in England just now is formed on rumors as mystic and dark as those to which the Know Nothing Society g ave birth and circulation. The English Ministry will draw a long breath. erliaps, when they learn that the steamer Gulnare is sunk. They were looking for her arrival off the Irish coast with a cargo of dynamite for the Irish Nationalists a few weeks ago. Mean while slie was quietly plying in the fruit trade between Ruatan and New Orleans until, one day, an accident sent her to join the innumerable fleet which strews the ocean's bed. She is not dangerous now, not even to a Cabinet Minister's peace of mind. That Irregularity.

It does this good deed now. abtKit tw ice a week and we are always disappointed when it fails to meet us in the morning. Will Palat ka's MiNt master look into this irregu larity." We thank the Herald for its apprecia tion of our efforts, but assure our friend that "P-alatka's isjstmaster" is entirely irresjionsible for this irregularity.

Tliat tlie conditions of location, soil, fertilizers, or irrigation makes the difference in quality, some inferior and some sui-rior to t.hwc in California? When our liest writers, and supMjsed to lie our lawt judge, nunc so near agreeing , and differ so little, like Mr. Stell, we might as well put them all in a liasket and defy any one to assort tliem.

Bid well, of Jacksonville, Fla.; CoL Atwotsl. of St. Augustine, and no doubt others in Flor ida. Sir. Phelps, of Sanford, entered Navels at the Orlando fair this winter. He says he olitained tlie buds from Riv erside, Cal. Mr. J. A. Bastrom, of Or mond. entered Navels at the same time aiul place; he is in doubt whether the Navels (the buds) were from Mr. Bidwcll or Col. Atwood. Mr. Phelps' Navels had seeds arid scored (I think) ninety joints. Mr. Bastrom's Navels had no seeds, and scored ninety-four oints, and were as near perfect as you seldom find an or ange. Messrs. Beade. Knox & Beade, of this place, sent to Riverside, Cal., and sV tained Navel buds; we sampled the fruit this winter with ours (buds from Bid well and Atwood), ami pronounced ours equal, if not sujierior. We do not think we were Isased in judgment, for liave the so-called "Riverside," Imth in both nursery and grove, but not in l-ar-ing. Now, in regard to the prolificness of the Baliia. Are the California Bahias more prolific than ours? Have our writers not jumped at the conclusion that they are? I met a gentleman from Chicago this winter, who is well ac quainted with many of tlie raiige growers of California, and he said they all admit that their Bahias. on an an average, produce only one-fifth what the common orange does. My Bahias do better tlian tliat, in fact last season they bore more than I cared to liave tliem, considering tlie severe weather we hal the winter before. Perhaps we liave a "remedy" for making non-bearing fruit trees bear; it is not new. not "patented." and I will "inve it away" in some future article. Nlmbek Nine.
