The sea serpent which made a free show of itself in the Hudson River and along the New England corn-it, last summer, has teen seen on the Pacific coast. What we like about the sea ser pent is that it does not discriminate against "long hauls. " Advertisers furnishing cuts are re quested to send us only such as have a metal body. The high rate of speed at which we are compelled to run our press to meet the demands of our rapidly in creasing circulation it destructive to such as have a wood body. Our advices from Tallahassee show that the Legislature will refuse to carve the proposed county of Santa Fe from the counties of Putnam, Clay, Bradford and Alachua. The scheme met the solid opposition of Senator Fowler and he was supported to Messrs. Hind and Carleton in the lower House. In this we believe these gentlemen represented justly the wishes of their constituents except im mediately in the neighborhood of Mel rose. Certainly it would be unadvisable to run the line as proposed. Village improvement societies are a feature of Northern village life. Many Tillages have been made lieautiful after a consistent plan by concerted action of the citizens and with but small individ ual expense. Many small towns in Florida might adopt the plan with suc cess. Nothing sells property like well sliaded streets, kept clear of weeds and nicely kept front yards. In a State so rich in variety of trees and shrubs as Florida it should not lie difficult to fur nish a pleasing vista for each street that would delight the eye of the visitor. A new enterprise was lately started in Jacksonville, backed by a capital of one hundred thousand dollars, supported by the names of many of the most substan tial business men in the city and placed under the direction of gentlemen against whose personal or public character n t one word can be said. The people of the State gladly hailed its advent among us and these felicitations now lately published make a long list from every quarter Is it not surprising tliat the good wishes of the Times-Union does not appear? Has that paper forgotten the Exposi tion as well as the Morning Aeirs? We are glad to give our readers a further account of Dr. Sliaffranek's ex periments in Hybridization. Alone and unaided this distinguished scientist is doing much that will !e marked out for our State Experimental farm when we get one. Dr. Shaffranek is with us the whole year round and the result of his work is given ur people freely, while the Agent of the government is highly paid to watch our insects and plants for three or four months and then leave them during the period of their fructifi cation and most instructive growth. Here is room for a genuine civil service reform. The Florida Herald opposes Terry lie cause his services are needed in the State. Did the Herald support Bloxham because he was not needed in his present office? Does it now support Judge Me Whorter because that gentleman is not needed as Chief Justice? Did not Blox ham and McWhorter make a -contract on assuming office as definite as that made by Perry? Does not Mallory's answer to the petition asking him to support Perry reduce to absurdity all "the voices of the people' the Bloxham papers have li-een invoking? If a Governor breaks his "contract with the people on becoming Senator why has not the same complaint been urged to break a long list of estab lished precedents? "StruggUiig Industries." A State contemporary is proud of the fact that it stands almost alone in this section as asking protection for that "struggling industry" our orange cul ture. How is this? It has been demon strated time and again that the growth of the citrus fruits in Florida is a safe and most profitable business. That bus iness has created new Florida it hits brought us more wealth than the Disston sale it has done more to advertise the State, bring capital among us and popu late the waste places than all the other agencies combined. It hits built more railroads than the " broad policy " for which our contemporary gives Bloxham credit in ten years it hits made Jack sonville a city and made the forests give place to such towns as Ocala. Orlando, Daytona and a hundred others. Where fifteen years ago stood unproductive land, worth in the market one dollar per acre, orange culture can show annual crops which seem almost fabulous. This fruit is the finest of its kind in the world ; it stands everywhere at the top of the market, and the demand for it is yearly growing. Marvelous as has been the increase of the crop, stimulated by the in pouring of capital from every quarter, it is con ceded that all the suitable land in the State, with the closest cultivation, will be insufficient to fill the demands the future will bring. Are any of these posi tions denied ? We can point to groves now bringing in annual returns of $75,000 on land which fifteen years ago supported only an unbroken forest is such an industry a 'struggling' one ? How would the proposed "protection of one dollar per box" affect orange cul ture? It is conceded that it would not increase the price now paid the grower, and we cannot supply the demand. It would therefore only compel those tcho must eat foreign fruit, to pay for this inferior article one dollar per box more than they now pay. In other words all who buy foreign oranges, because they cannot find enough Floridas for domes tic consumption, must waste one dollar which does not benefit us, and is only subtracted from the business of the country to nil a national treasury al ready overburdened with a tremendous surplus! What sort of jiolitical economy is this? No! protection will not helpany indus try. It may give fictitious prosjierity, but no business is worth anything unless it lives by reason of "the survival of the fittest' and can stand open comjietition in the ojien market. Protection is taxa tion; can taxation sustain life? When capital was scarce in this country and communication with other nations slow and costly and our country of comiiara tively small extent, protection might be accepted as a measure of necessity in view of tlie possibility of war and with the idea that we should prodiu-e all we needed. But none of these considera tions will apply now. The fictitious val ues given any article by artificial "pro tection will only bring on a collaise and heavy kiss like every wrong, a 1 ginning necessitates an indefinite contin uance. If we can buy oranges chenpT than we can grow them let us turn our attention to something else. If the Floruln Herald will give a reason for the protection of oranges which will not apply with equal force to the -pri-tection" of tea or coffee or the manu facture of artificial diamonds, we will acknowledge a defeat and leave Carlisle and Cleveland for Randall and Kelley. The South must not now abandon the wisition she has so long held against all comers with logic and argument and fact. She insisted on "protection" for slavery, and one such lesson should lie enough. Her "protected industry put her a century behind the age and the sword which f reed her from the deadly excrescence brought her to the brink of the grave. We want no more such sur gical operations. Let us follow Carlisle and the DennxTatic party; we cannot progress if we saddle ourselves with the weights under which our antagonists are dying. The fruit culturists are "struggling in one sense, we admit, but under no load of which "protection can relieve them. We grow the crop but we do nt t reap the profit, and the fault in our oirn. Even the lack of transsrtation facilities and high freights rob us of far less than our luck of business ability, our careless ness in handling and a system of market ing which invites fraud and enriches thieves. From these burdens our own exjierience must free us if we would cease to make a losing "struggle." No atent nostrum or worn out fallacy can give us sense or teach us the practical knowledge we need. We put the fruits of our industry in the hands of irresjion- sible parties and then cry out that all commission men are robliers. We ship wet or green or bruised fruit and are sur prised that the buyer finds it unfit for use. If some friend will protect us from these consequences of our own foolish- ness, he will save us far more than "one dollar ier lx. The Hoard of Trade In Sunday's issue the Khtriila Herald says: "The Palatka Board of Trade, next to the Jackson ville body, seems to lie the most useful business institution in the State. Jacksonville is vitally indebted to her admirable Imaru. The Jacksonville Board is combined the liest business men of the metroiiolis, has long been in successful oiieration and has done a wonderful amount of practi cal good for tliat city. Its leading spirits are men of energy, tact and ability: jt has thoroughly emanciated itself from the control of js-rsonal interests and on financial and public questions it carries thefull indorsement of the community ftr which it laborsand speaks bya uthority. That our young Board should have done so much in so short a time only proves that its increasing usefulness will stead ily grow along the path it has marked out for itself, and we hope it will, in time, be an instrument for good as w erful as our sister city has found her Board to lie. We could not keep' lie fore our eyes a better or more useful example. But the Palatka Board differs in one resiieet entirely from its mentor. It pro. poses to work for all the section as well as for itself. It has invited its neighlsir ing towns to enter its memliership "with full fiowers and privileges, and its duties will have a much wider range than our own corporate limits. On all matters pertaining to the general interest it can increase its usefulness as well as its strength, if the jieople from Daytona and the whole sea coast to Lake Worth will join with the interior towns and those of the Gulf, in a common bond for the mu tual advancement of common interests and encouragement of that common growth which will so owerf ully conduce to a common prosjierity. Is not Daytona and Tampa equally interested in the extension of quick and cheap transportation, the increase of trade, the lowering of freights and the encouragement of immigration and travel? Are not Titusville and Rock ledge bound to Palatka by a common interest in every visitor who tsses south and every dollar invested in this section? Do not Ocala and Orlando and Seville and Welaka stand in the same category? The Palatka Board of Trade promises to act as the central body from which all these influences shall emanate, and. when the bond is jierfectcd. if it be thought best, we can organize an Exec utive Committee which shall act as the mouthpiece for the whole and in which all can claim representation. In this our Board has marked out a plan for itself. The Committee on Transportation of the Palatka Board lately formulated its hopes of good from the Inter-State Commerce law and presented these to the Commission. This was considered so important that the matter was taken by the Associated Press and given to all the principal apers in the country. Even considered as an advertisement of our advantages, this was worth hundreds of dollars to our section. At its next meeting the Board will probably send on an agent to present the peculiar circum stances now retarding our progress and to prope a remedy for some of the bur dens under which our producers now la bor in competing for our projn-r place in the markets of the country. Are we not all interested in these questions? The TinufUnion says in reference to the positions assumed by the Board on the proposed State Railroad Commission Bill and the operation of the Inter-State Commerce law : "Some of the peoi.le of Palatka appear to appreciate what it is to be discrimi nated against in the matter of railroad freights from other Stat-s. If they will investigate the subject, and discard the statements of the railroad organs, we don lit not they will declare as strongly in favor of a Couimission in r londa to control the railroads and not to protect them tn their exorbitant and discrimi nating rates, as tliev have in favor of the enforcement of the fourth section of the Inter-State Commerce law." Now in this a confusion is created which works jmsitive injustice. The resolutions of the Board on the State Commission Bill were plain and short it simply protested against the estab lishment of an irresponsible laaly from whose decisions there should lie no a Ieal. The whole situation has been alreadv clearlv defined bv The Palatka News. There is no objection wliatever to the enactment of a law which shall lie just to the roads, while guarding in the strongest terms the rights of the Iieople and punishing any fraud or iuqio sition on shipers. Palatka. in common with all the people of the State, de mand the utssage of such a law. The McKinne Bill, with N amendment, will lie a great lienetit to the State, but in its first form, as urged by our Board of Trade, it would have been an injury. Through its Committee on Transpor tation the same Board has asked the en forcement of tha long and short haul clause of the Inter-State law, Imt there is no contrast lietween the two po sitions as the Tiinen-Union would imply. We object to an un just State law the McKinne Bill would carry us from one extreme to the other, and we ask only a law which would conqiel the transiior tation comjianies to do us justice. The Inter-State Commerce law will do for the whole country what a commission, projsTly organized, would do for the State, and we ask the Commission to enforce ils most imtMrtant provision. With regard to the national law our po sition cannot be U-tter stated than in the following words of Mr. Call in the Sen ate on January 12th last: "We have heard a great deal read from various liooks as to the evils of discrimi nation. I concur in all of them. It ought to lie prohibited: it is proerly the subject f.t Congressional enact nieiit. The railroads should lie forbidden to combine to discriminate unreasonahl v against persons or places. That would cure tliat evil. Now the question is how far this gen eral provision of the bill against all com binations, how far this general provision of the bill establishing an arbitary rule of a long haul or a short haul, will an swer the puriiose. The evil, let us liear in mind, is an unjust discrimination lie tween (icrsoiis ami plac-s. The objt-t sought to lie obtained is the cheapest transKrtation, equal, impartial, and fair to all the productions of the country, to all the transiMirtatioit of the country tin i-heajiest rate consistent with what? V ith the proitt-r comiH-nsatioii of tl men who have constructed and who oinTate these highways, including the cost of construction and maintenance The evil we proimse to remedy is exces sive rates, unt-oiial rates, unjust dis crimination ln-tw.tn n-rsonsand places, For lsss. We are told: "To elect Mr. Cleveland over any man the Republicans may nominate will U an easy matter unless Democrats.who differ with him on civil service shall lend the Republicans a helping hand by unfriendly criticism." Democrats do not differ with "Mr. Cleveland on this question. One must suljscrilie to the platform of the iiarty if lie would lie a Ih-mocrat, and then he agrees with Mr. Cleveland. The dissatis faction expressed lay with the practical workings of the system and not with the principle which gave it birth. The Civil Service Commission for more than a year exertedall its energies to ant agonize the Democratic party and itsjiolicy not to give the nation a reformed Civil Ser vice. While this was the case it was the Iart of all true Democrats to cry ah Hid and sjiare not till these methods were clianged. The cry reached t he ears of the Iresi dent and a radical change was effected. With the thoroughness characteristic of the man he weeded out the abuses, and the sharpest criticisms yet written of the old methods comes from the new com missioners. The country is now getting its first taste of real Civil Service reform, and against that no democrat will cry Hit. Mr. Cleveland will not go luick in the iKith which now opens so fair liefore him. and his nomination is already as sured. But for the fact that Kentucky is safely democratic, Cleveland and Car lisle would lie a ticket to make defeat impaissible. If we must go toa doubtful State for our Vice President we care lit tle who he is .so he lie not tainted with "protection." Florida Irnit Exchange. The editor of the liisptitch has lieen the consistent champion of the Ex change since the inception of the plan, but has now come to the same conclu sion we expressed a year ago and still believe to lie correct. The solution of the great problem which has so long vexed our fruit culturists is not far to seek if we will apply to it the same thought and reasoning that is applicable to every business. We must bring the grower and consumer as near together as ixissible what is n.tthil Is an aggre gration of capital and not an association of men. The grower should sell at home those directly interested should look after the fruit and apply to its transjior tation and Kile the same watchfulness, exierience and care necessary to the suc cess of every business. This xition when assumed gained us many hard words, but it aroused thought, and, like all truth, time has brought its triumph. The Lixittch says : "We suliserilied to the stock of the institution in view of its co-operation-of-growers feature. The latter lias proven a failure. Do not let us give it up, however, Ut-ause the origi nal scheme was L'topian: it has an effi cient management, let it lie run to make money for its stockholkrs, as other corporations are, and its success is as sured, and in this way it will prove far more usef ul in helping to solve the mar keting problem than w hen run on the jro bono publico plan." Straining at Gnats. "Drinking, dancing. card-playing Methodists. Baptists. lresbyterians and Kpiscopalians are doing more to bring Christianity into disrepute than Inger soll and the whole cohort of infidels in the land." iKLmul Baptist Witness. This is " straining at a gnat and swal lowing a camel." It is not harmless amusements which " bring Christianity into disrepute," but the carping at those who choose to indulge- in harmless amusements which lead so many to re gard Christianity as effete. It is the great row made about trifles, the insis tance upon small matters. like unto the manner of the Pharasees, that repels healthy natures from such Christianity as is contained in the above paragraph. The Sermon on the Mount is not repel lent to strong souls, but how many church members practice those precepts? A friend in South Florida writes us " I am making a wreath of sanfl -spurs for Jones' grave when will it be needed?"

CT.nl-nrr nf the I'nUtlhn Xrm : Crescent City, May 14. We also with Palatka must make com plaint with regard to our mail facilities. Under the regime of Beach &. Miller's steamboat line our mail arrived but a little later than it does now, and they gave us till 7 o'clock next morning to tost our letters. As it is now we liave not time to post immediate replies to let ters received, as the carrier leaves with the mail in about lialf an hour after his arrival carrying the same to Denver where it remains till next day 10:40 a. in., making aliout forty hours U-fore au im mediate reply can be hurried on to its destination. This arrangement has caused many of our citizens to get their letters to the railway train by private carrier much to their own inconvenience and hiss and to the loss of the Jiost master, whose salary is dependent iijmhi his can cellations. If we had a branch of I'a- latkas Board of Trade possibly we could get the Pt Office DeKtrtiuent to give us two mails a day, which would remedy the matter. A large drove of wild stock cattle, among them some bulls, have been pas turing uon our streets and vacant lots. Our shade trees, which have lx-en set out at much exjiense, are being broken down and abused ; our sidewalks are lieing defiled, and the life and limits of our citizens are lieing endangered, am until the cattle ordinance is en force I we advise the ladies not to permit their lit 1 1 children to lie uiniii the streets, or there is great danger of their lieing gored. In fact, we are very apprehensive that we shall soon lie called to chronicle a ter rible death or mutilation of laaly ol some one of our citizens if our city ofli- cers do not lierform their duty with resjiect to this ordinance. If a calamity of the kind should occur the city w ill undoubtedly, and very justly, lie mulcted in heavy damages. 1 lie burnt district is lieing r built, a new sidewalk is in process of const ru tion.

C'trreinilt Met nf the lifof An A Washington, D. C, May lfi. Preparations for the National Drill have been alxmt completed, and the com mittee have received notice that several of the visiting companies will arrive in the city and go into camp during the present week. A meeting of the Washington Moun ment AsMN'iation was held on Wednes day last, to consider as to the proM-r course to pursue in order to protect the memorial stones which liave lieen set in the interior of the Monument, from fur ther injury by relic hunters who abuse the privilege which lias been accorded them of visiting the Monument, by chi ping and otherwise defacing the struc ture. Some of the cxiiensive stones which were presented by foreign govern ments ami by States and societies, liave lieen nearly ruined. The celebrated "Nevada" stone, which has lieen so great ly admired by all visitors to the Monu ment and is considered to be one of the most exiiensive and lieautiful of the me morial stones, has been badly disfigured, several of the massive silver letters ujxui its face have been detached and carried away. After carefully considering the subject it was unanimously decided by the Association that the Monument should hereafter lie closed to visitors, until Congress shall take such action in the premises as will effectually protect the structure from these acts of vandal ism. The Monument will lie closed on the last day of the National Drill. The city has been flooded during the past few days with counterfeit silver dollars of the issue of lH. The coun terfeit is considered to lie one of the l-st that has heretofore been detected. The size and general appearance of the coun terfeit is identical with that of the gen uine coin, and the "ring" is so jierfect as to deceive an exiert. The weight of the counterfeit is slightly In-low the stand ard, and it is by this alone that the fraud may be detected. Where these coins came from, or how many of them has been put into circu lation is a mystery which as yet has not lieen solved. A large number of mer cliants and other business men liave been deceived by tlie coins, and in one in stance sixty-five of the counterfeit dol lars were taken in by a prominent mer chant upon Seventh street, before the fraud was detected.

They came into tlie shop, "said a merchant of the town, "but that was all right. Then the first thing I knew thev walked back into our living part of the house and went to pulling over things aud looking into drawers just as if they were at home. My wife had to ask them to go out, and had to push them so she could shut the door. They only laughed and thought it was a great joke that Mexicans should have any feelings.
