The Jacksonville Morning .Vrir shows its regard for that fairness which gives a hearing to both sides when it repub lishes the letter of Mr. Bishop on the rec ord of Governor Drew, as written for The PaLATCA Nkws of the 7th inst. This in simple justice and the matter ia of such immediate interest that we hope this good example will be widely followed. Governor Bloxham has bad a full hear ing and it is only just that all should see the other side as welL Tin Palatka News takes great pride in its State correspondence hich is able, full and reliable. From every business center in Florida we have letters each week and these deal with questions inter esting not only to ourselves but to all who contemplate settlement or business in this section. Where could the small farmer or the fruit culrorist find better exponents of his views or practice than in "Farmer John," "Buckeye" and oth ers? The florists or scientist will find much that is valuable in the artiales of Dr. Shaffranek who is without a peer in his peculiar field, and business men will all find information that is valuable in our letters from different points as will the tourist and lover of the picturesque in descriptions of places and sec tions outside the usual routes. We shall soon give valuable data on vineyards and wine making from the most successful grower in the State, and we shall labor earnestly to do our part in guiding and directing to good purpose the stream of visitors which poor in upon us next winter. We want only reliable information and proved statistics, but every citizen of the State is concerned in furnishing us these. Let us all lend a hand to the good work Florida needs nothing lut the truth. The Slavery to Animal. Jacksonville has petitioned the legis lature for permission to punish wanton cruelty to animals. We would endorse the request, but beg at the same time some legal protection against the cruel slavery inflicted on us by some animals of a nondescript breed. This has become unendurable and the injustice must be abated soon, if we kindle another war to cut the intricate knot of our difficulties, like Alexander with the sword. We all remember how pathetically Dickens describes the condition of the man who had been thoroughly subdued and made slave to a dog. The poor man was compelled to accompany his mas ter around in dark alleys, make acquaint ances with strange and disreputable companions and spend money and time in the glorification of the bows brute. Is not this positive slavery from which the victim should be relieved by the watch ful guardianship of a kind government? There is a case of worse servitude in Florida. More onerwus than the yoke of the English bull dog is the tyranny of the Florida hog. Here the master re fuses to associate with the slave. Worth less alive or dead uncouth in shape. vicious in temper, the razor back values independence more than all else and ranges the woods in as utter con tempt of the laborer and with li cense to plunder on his native heath as unlimited as was ever claimed by Rob Roy McGregor. As his prototype gathered the flocks and harvests of the Sassenach and shunned only the walled towns and guarded castles, so the Florida hog taxes all not strongly fortified. He compels his slaves to guard their pos sessions with barricades and he breaks these save where he knows the guns are loaded. lie ranges the woods for plunder he tires of grass- and nuts and wrests the dainties of the lakes from his kins man, the alligator. Tired of quiet in dependence he attacks the fields and ravages them at pleasure. lie is armed for war with a long snout like the 'gator his shoulders are protected by a coat of mail his strong back arches proudly in a bow and his bristles float in the airs of battle like the plume of Henry of Navarre. Yet he is not always reckless, and when he believes discretion the better part of valor he vies in speed with the race horse. Thus armed and equipped for the ser vice of his father, the devil, the razor- back has met the people of East Florida and they are his. He compels his slaves to watch his young carefully during the spring and summer for he fears the bear and wildcat and panther except when he is prepared for the combat and can oppose to their appetite his well trained phalanx which is firm as that of Macedon and has been taught the arts of attack as well as defence. When his young no longer needs their father's slaves for protection against their natu ral enemies, he leads the whole family Into the depths of the hammocks and revels in lawless and fearless independ ence. Even the panther dare only at tack his forces in detail. Ills tusk proof against the paw of the bear. He charges recklessly his cousin, the 'gator. takes possession of his slimy beds, and each takes a horrible pleasure in devour ing the children of the other. The hog seldom shrinks from the saurian even in deep water, but on the land he charges in utter confidence. This beast, so terrible, compels our people to fortify their borders and main tain a standing army like European, na tions. Our red brothers murdered us and brained our women and children, but they put no tax so heavy on us as the hog has succeeded in doing. To guard against hi ravage the people of Putnam tax themselves more than ten thousand dollar per annum' We may - Lavs little to eat, the clothing may be cheapened and the children stopped from school, but the hog tax must be be paid. The collector of revenue for county and state may'sell us out because we cannot find the money he demands, but no one ever thinks of neglecting his fences we protect the hog in the sum mer we build the fences he makes nec essary and in the winter we divide oar last crust of bread with him. We dare not shoot him if he grows insolent and our faithful dog is taught to endure his in sults, because if his hogship is wounded the neighbor who has been kind to us in sickness and laughed at our board in health, will be compelled by this fearful master to consign us to the tender mer cies of the courts where our last hope is takenfrom us. Is it abuse of language to call such suf fering slavery to name such a tyrant master? Will not the Legislature help us by consigning such living 'cruelty to confinement and giving us the lalr for our fields which we now waste on fences to satisfy this devil who ranges our woods and fields and waters seeking what he may devour? Or will neglect of our in terests at Tallahassee compel the farmer of East Florida still to suffer perpetual anxiety and consuming care, like the politician, about the condition of his fences? Dividing the Counties. A county is a living entity it is a body corporate endowed with all the business rights of a person it can sue and be sued, make contracts and own property. It is a joint stock company wherein every citizen is a shareholder and its affairs are managed by certain officers, duly elected, who might be called directors an executive commit tee, etc., as well as the titles they now bear. This being true, is not each citi zen directly interested? If he is, should the firm in which all are stockholders be dissolved except by mutual consent? Is it not evident that before such an as sociation be broken up the will of the eople should be'onsulted, and at least the majority should consent to a meas ure which affects a whole community? It seems to us that the only reply lies plain to all. Our Legislature then should take warn ing by the number of bills before it ask ing that the old boundaries be broken up and new counties spring into existence in every direction. With the increase of wealth and population, nearly every county in the State will be found too large in ten years. Since so much work is to be done, let the Legislature provide for its transaction in a systematic man ner. We believe a general statute should be enacted, prescribing the manner in which new counties be created and we believe this should be passed now. There was lately an attemjt to carve from Putnam a proosed new county, called Santa Fe, and the whole matter was discussed and settled before a ma jority of our citizens had made up their minds on the subject. Petitions have now gone up lor still anotner county with Hawthorne as the central point, and very few have as yet heard of it. This is not just. Such schemes are now man ipulated by real estate owners hereafter they may le brought up in the interest of political parties. Let the Legislature give us a statute during the present neiutitm which shall Bet bounds and methods to this increas ing zeal. Otherwise we shall liave large and bitter complaints of "wire working" and "secret combinations" and "deals" in the near future. When a pe tition for the formation of a new county seems to le based on reasonable grounds. let a vote of the Letrislature direct the Governor to order an election if a ma- ioritv of the voters in the whole j j county wishes the division made, let them so declare by ballot on the day set by the Governor's proclamation. When these votes are certified to the Governor, and he sliall find the majority is in favor of the division, then let him pro claim the new county established with boundaries, court-bouse, etc., as pre scribed tiy the Legislature in its direc tion for the election. Thus the matter can be done decently and in order. We believe the whole people would favor the passaged of a bill embodying these pro visions. Mow Freights. The loss which may result from a lack of promptness in the work of transpor tation roniiianies is often serious and the vexation maddening. When freight w received the transportation cr.mp.iny is certainly hound to transmit it safely and quickly as possible to its destination barring those accidents or delays which excuse themselves. We care not whether this obligation is expressed the impli cation is there and the consideration makes it binding as if a contract had been signed. Discrimination against town or a firm can be made so heavy in various ways that it often becomes crush ing. This delay of freights is one of the deadliest forms under which ill-will can be expressed. We will give an instance. Freight for a party in Palatka left New Haven, Conn., on the night of Thursday, May 5, it was in New York on the morning 'of Friday. Mav 6 was transferred to the Mallory steamer which sailed on the same day, and reached Fernandina on Monday, Ma y 9 all in four day. Yet the same freight was received in Palatka only on May 14, having con sumed more time in traveling eighty- five miles between Palatka and Fernan dina than in the passage from New Haven to Fernandina. If the trains in Florid; have been de layed by floods or snow storms or strikes or war the daily papers have not in formed us of that momentous fact. If communication has been interrupted there we would like to know the particu lars. Here is a point for the Board of Trade to take up at its next meeting, but in the meantime the loss will fall on the merchant, and the dissatisfaction is written in broad lines on the faces of his customers. Food Fish la Florida. . Before a joint committee of the Sen ate and House, Dr. Pelot, of Manatee, has brought a nu4 elaborate bity, de signed "to protect the food fish of the State." This desire of the honorable gentleman is highly commendable no one is better aware than the people along the St. Johns that our food fishes are rapidly demolishing in numbers and some varieties are already exceeding scarce. Our present law practically affords no protection except to shad and no interest is taken in enforcing it for their benefit. Let us have a statute carefully drawn for the protection of bream and bass as well as shad and let provision be made for its enforcement. But we certainly wish to protect these fish that they may be used for the food and profit of. man. The author of the bill now before the committee seems to have a tender interest for the fish them- selves and would stop our fisheries that the fish may live for their own pleasure and. the satisfaction of their friend, the gentleman from Manatee. Hear him : 'SKCTlOX 4. It shall not be lawful for any person or persons to use ray gill net, drag net or seine, or any pound, dyke, dam, purse net or stop oH in or across any river, creek, bavoo. cove, lake or pond, of the public waters of this State, under a penalty of one hundred dolip - for each and every offense or imprison ment in tae county jail for not lex than thirty days. But "the provistoos of this section shall not apply to any person in the catching of fish for his or her own private use, nor shall it apply to local fishermen, when the fish so caught are to be used to supply any local market, town or city; lYorvIert, The waters so fished shall be adjace it thereto, or in the neighborhood of such market, town or city; I'rvrided further, that such fisherman or fisher men shall ootji. a liceo.se from the offi cers having such matters in charge, de nning the wa. era to tie so fished. or shall it apply to any lake or pond owned by private Iarty or parties who shall control such waters." What good are fish if we are not to eat them or sell them? And how are we to do either till we catch them ? And how shall we catch them without " gill net, drag net or seine, or pound, dike. dam. purse net or stop net f Our Sen ator Fowler is on flie committee, and this Section alone should kill the bilL Jewels to Wear in Theodora." Jfew York Times. Sarah Bernhardt will probably wear some striking new Oriental jewelry when she plavs here again in "Theodora." Fanny Davennort. to beirin with, boue-ht a necklace and one or two other costly iieces more than a month ago from the iast India collection which young Mr. Marcus, of Jaomes & Marcus, had iust brought over irom the Inter-Uolimal Ixhibition at South Kensington, and at The "Fedora" matinee at the Grand Op era House on April ltt. after 31 rue. Bern- Iiarut had gone belund the curtain, the American actress curious new jewels were the subject of an enthusiastic fif teen minutes' talk. They were just the thing, both plaj ers agreed, for Sardou's liyzautine Km press, warm and glowing in color, almost barbaric in their pro fuseness of inlaid brillants. So the next day Mr. Marcus. Sr.. went up to the Hoffman House with a box of Kast Indian jewelry under his arm and his most taking smile and best French accent in readiness. Bernhardt received him in a morning gown and a torrent of polite French. Tlie South American tiger-cat was romping about, and young Maurice Bernhardt was on hand to give an opinion. The actress opened the box lid herself and then let out her vocabulary. Mr. Marcus is sure she said "superb" six times and par fait at least a dozen. She even admitted that .he East Indian jew els which the Prince of Wales had given her pretu-nts to him from the ra jahs during his travels in India were far in- fernr in size aiid brilliancy. She would take the liest pieces at any price, which ment, of course, as she centlv insinuated afterward, with the usual professional discount. The gallant Mr. Marcus smiled and looked grateful. Then he came to terms for four of the more elaliorate pieces. The actress tried them on and then young Maurice Bernhardt looked them over, with the last one in jwrticu- lar, a gold dairsier lor. the hair, long enough to le a rapier, the athletic young sporting man was highly pleased. The first of Madame Bernhardt s pieces was a broad forehead ornament of fine Ja pore work inlaid with emeralds. rabies, jacinths, topazes and diamonds. the frame work of pure gold, with a re verse in enamel. 1 lie second was an amulet necklace, made of three square gold plates with enamel hacks, liound to gether bv gold chains, the whole inlaid with talismanic stones, each standing for some charm or virtue. The third was a large gold bracelet of finely chis eled cylinders of gold, for the upierarm oeniiig at the Itu k so as to lie worn also as a necklace. The fourth war a jeweled dagger with which Theodora is to stab the stubtiorn Marcellus. What the prices were no one knows. Madame Bernhardt is clever at business. and Mr. Marcus is gallant a.id apprecia tive. "I have seen Rachel." he said the other dav, "but I think Bernhardt is a more nob!e actress." From One Interested. Kerr Cltr Advertiser. An extract from the bill introduced by Mr. Hinds, now under consideration in the lower House, changing the county line between I'utnam and Marion, is published in this issue. The bill takes from instead of adding to Putnam, and though it is much preferable to the line now established, yet it would give more general satisfaction if the line was es tablished on line running north and south between ranges 'Z'i and 26, or even on line between 24 and 2-. As The Palatka News states in regard to the proiKised line, settlers of this district are obliged to go by the way of Palatka to get to the county seat. Ocala, or go over land not twenty miles, but thirty or thirty-five milcn. This is one reason why we are dissatisfied with the line as it runs at present and also with the proposed cliange. The majority of the land owners through this section, we think, are decidedly in favor of an annexation to Putnam County, because we are confi dent that our interests would be far bet ter represented because of the conve nience in getting to the county seat, and ttecatise our inclinations are more iden tified with progression and our present condition demands the opportunities for advancement which iTitnaru County can give us. Pack's Best Picture. New York Herald. Jhiek has a very telling illustration of the Guilford Miller case this week. The two hundred million dollar mon opolist, with a locomotive and train of cars behind rum, is making his wa across Washington Territory as thoug! he owned the continent. He has just lifted his big hob-nailed boot, and at the next will tread on Farmer Miller, who crouches in fear of the impending ca tastrophe. Miller looks as though he thought there was no power in this country to restrain a big corporation and he must submit to fate with the best grace he can command. Suddenly, however, a long arm is thrust through a window of the White House, and Mr. Cleveland takes the mo nopolist by the throat with a hand that looks strong enough to protect t lie poor farmer against anything and anybody, The startled expression on the face of the land grabber is a study. He has had his own way for twenty years, but suddenly reaches the conclusion that a Democratic administration bent on land reform is not to be trifled with. The cartoon is an eloquent eulogy of a President who has determined that the rights of the people shall be pro tected at ail hazards. Feminine Management.

WHERE AND HOW JET IS FOUND. Claim of tave Whitby FmwIo Ii tm Ita Tati a Ilea. Jet is a shining black snbstance which is found in seam dissociated from other black minerals, and not in the coal regions of England, but in others, notably near Vt hitby, in orkshire. It occurs also in Saxony and in the amlier districts on the iTussian ahores of the Baltic. The scien tioU maintain that it is a variety of coaL but the Whitby folks atkluce many cir cumstances Uiat go to prove that it must liave been at snrmi timo in a gummy or st-mi-lijusl vUilj quite unlike cool from ligneous sources. Bits of vegetal Jo sub stances are often found imbedded in it. also tlies wings and other small articles. which favor the hithy theory. The stratum called jet rock is found mostly at Whitby, in a sort of siiale, which, when distilled, yields ten gallons of oil a ton. The nature of the connec tion between this oil and jet cannot now be determined, though some connection evidently existed in pafct timou. There is hard jet and soft jet, tlie former being the best. It occurs in detatched pieces, ranging in size from a domino up to thosn many pound in weight. The largest piece ever found was six feet long, five tielus wid-j and one and a half inches tliic'. The British museum refused tj give ten guineas for it, but a dealer jui I hitecii lor it and cut it up into cruses of unusual size. How long jet, or black amber, as it was formerly called, lias been worked at Whitby is not known, but certainly for many centuries. In a tumulus or barrow near the town the skeleton of a lady was found, sup posed to lielong to the ancient British days, before the date of tlie Danish in vasions, and with it were earrings of jet two inc'K-s long by a quarter of an inch thick. Tliey were heart sliaped. with a liole. in the upper part for the wire. Jot possesses considerable electric qualities Lke amber. It was made into licad and rubaries in the middle ages by tlie monks. As a trade it liad not much activity till t!j heginning of tlio present century. Hie Sjiaiiiards made beaIs and rosariesof tho soft kind of jet. and when English ladies liegan to wear it in mourning tlie Whitby industry began to flourish. At first the workers used only knives and (tL-s, but Blattliew Hill discovered a ni.-tliod of turning this lirittle tiub stance in a lathe. The largest find ever made was forty years ago, at North Butti, , a spot in the neighhnrhool of Whitby, an 1 coiim. ted of S7t pieces of stones, ralucd at $l,2-0. The jet is picked up on tlie si Hire, at the foot of the cliffs, but this is of an inferior quality. A danrerous mode of obtaining it is to cut down the face of the cliff, until a jet warn u reached. It is also tunneled for twenty miles inland, near BiLsdale, in tho CUn eland hills. The men rent the work ings, as in the cop;ier and tin mines of Cornwall, and they may work a month without coming acroa a bit of tlie precious stuff. The prices for the best hard jot is three shillings a pound; for the soft, one shilling. Tho Whitby variety is the finest known, as it is tougher and more elastic tlian any other. and admits of a higher polish. Many articles sold in the shops as V lutby jet are derived from the Pyrenees, and are liable to break through sudden lioat or cold, which is due to a slight per cent, of sulphur in the Spanish variety. He Loved III Do. In the greatest of the ancient Hindoo poems the sacred tiook ot tine Maliab harata there is a passage of excciitioiial beauty nnd tenderness, which records the reception of King ludiautlura at the gate of Paradise, A pilgriia of the heav enly city, the king had traveled over vat spacei, and one by one the loved ones. the companions of his journey, liad all fallen and left him alone, tave his faith ful dog, winch still followed. He was met by Indra and invited ts enter the holv citv. But tlie king thinks of his friends w1h have fallen on the war and declines to go in without them. Tho god tells him they are all within, wailing for him. Jovful. he is about to seek tlieui. when he looks upon the poor dog. who, weary and wasted, crouches at his feet, and asks that lie, too. may enter tlie gate. Indra refuss, and thereupon the king declares that to abandon his faithful and dumb friend would lie as great a sin as to knl a Brahmin. Away with that felicity whom price is to abandon the faithful! Never, come weal or woe, will I leave my faithful do;?. The poor crvature. ia fear and distress, lias tni-tcl i:i my powrr to nave tiim: Not, thm fore, for life itarif, will 1 break my plighted worO.

But his virtue and faithfulness change his desti nation to heaven, and lie finds himself Mirroundcd bv bis old friends and in tho presence of tlie goils, who thus lionor and reward his humanity and tuueliish love.
