Indefinite Postponement of the Pre requisite Bill, aaasrtloiiatsat ft Senatorial District iM prs- seatath The Lsgislatsra Cats Dam th Suk-Trapical Appropriation. Ajxvwil tn the PaUUkti Kan. Tallahasskf., May 25. The five min ute rule was adopted this morning in the Senate, but it will tie so easy to secure unanimous consent to extend the limit of speeches, that it is feared not much time will he gained, completing the disposi tion of the lianquet loot night. Both houses have done a fair day's work. The effort to reconsider the passage of the bill for the appointment of inspectors of fertilizers, in the Senate, failed. The Senate Appropriation Committee reported the bill to secure a display of the State's resources at the Sub-Tropical Exposition amended from $.1,000 to $2,000. The bill to make appropriations for the Agricultural College was considered, amended to appropriate $2,000 for a chemical library, $2,000 for farm build ings, wagons, horses, etc., $1,000 for a building for the Industrial School and equipment, $1,000 for contingent fund and $500 for a reference library. The Senate also passed, with amend ments. House Bill No. 1, the Railroad Commission Bill. In the House the bill to establish a white normal school at Gainesville and a colored normal school at Jacksonville was reported by the Committee on Edu cation with amendments. The minority report opposes the establishment of the school at Jacksonville and favors Gaines ville for the same. Strong efforts are yet being made to locate the white school at De Funiuk and the colored school at Ocala. The bill to reimburse citizens of Ocala for aid rendered to the East Florida Semi nary in 18.12, passed to the second read ing. The House Bill defining the liability of of stockholders under the general incor poration laws, was passed; also the House Bill prescribing the bonds to lie given by certain county officers. The substitute for House Bill No. 32, to require electors to jmy a capitation tax before exercising the right of suf frage, was indetinitrly postioned, on motion of Mr. Parker, by the following Tote; Ykak Memr.

Carter. SHOT DOWN IX COURT. Prom pt Vnirente for an Ontraceona Crime against a Young Girl. Rockville, Mo., May 25. A man called at the Anderson residence last Tuesday and asked for a glass of water. Jennie Anderson, the popular and ac complished daughter of one of the lead ing citizens of Bates County, waited uon him. When she came near him he suddenly seized and chloro formed her and, while under the influence of the powerful drug, she was outraged. A search resulted in the arrest of John Vanderburg, and lv ncliing was prevented only by doubt of the pris oner's guilt. After the excitement had cooled down Jennie Anderson con fronted the prisoner and claimed to rec ognize him. At the preliminary hear ing, yesterday, the Anderson family were all present besides many other citi zens. Jenny told the horrible details of the crime and the prisoner made a poor attempt to prove an alibi. The judge h:wl announced that the prisoner would be held in $10,000 bail when a shot rang out, followed in rapid succession by two more. There was a seamjier for the street and when quiet was restored, the prisoner was dead. No one knows who fired the shots. but as two of the Anderson boys were in the court room they were put under ar- rvst. PREFER NATIVE AMERICANS. Operaters la the Coke Kegion Tired of Foreign Labor. PnTSBURO, May 25. A plan is being considered by the members of. the coke syndicate to introduce new men in the coke region. Several meetings of the syndicate of ojierators liave been held in Pittsburg, and the matter being thor onghly canvassed, they claim tliat they are daily receiving applications from scores of first-class men who are willing and ready to go to work. In case they decide to put new men to work they will be carefully protected and preference will be given to native Americans as they have found Hungarians too trouble some to make more experiments with them. They will also make every prt- vision to protect the new men and pre serve order. On the other hand the labor organiza tions have arranged to circulate infor mation and data with regard to the causes of the strike in all the industrial centers in the country. As a consequene of the strike shipments of iron ore from Cleveland and Ashtabula have been al most entirely susiended. MR. KELLY ON FLORIDA. The Father of the House on the State's l'at.

The parade of the troops of the National Drill Encamp ment to-day-, for review by the President, has afforded the first opportunity for sr ing at once the entire body of those form ing the encampment, aud was an unquali fied success. The weather wasperfer. Washington looked at its best and the greater part of the population seemed to be on the line of march. The arrange ments for the parade were seasonably complete and were carried out almost to the allotted second, and without ap parent hitch or break. The head of the column started from the camp promptly at 12 o'clock and reached the stand erected for the Presi dent and invited guests ten minutes later. This stand hail seats for nearly three hundred persons and was well filled without crowding. With the President were Mrs. Cleveland, Mrs. Welsh and Mrs. Marsey, and Col. and Mrs. Lamont. Gen. Sheridan and sev eral members of his staff in full uniform were their escorts. Among the guests of the drill were Gov. Lee. of Virginia, and staff; Got. McGill, of Minnesota, and staff; and the staff of Gov. Gray, of Indiana, (the Governor himself having been unavoidably detained at the last moment; Secretary Endicott, Senators Sherman and Gorman, the Mexican and Japanese Ministers and the lailies of their families, and a liberal sprinkling of other legation and army people. The troops looked and marched like veterans and were encouraged with lib eral applause. In one respect the pro gramme was departed from. The Vicks burg Southrons, with their band and the Memphis Zouaves brought up the rear with quitean interval between them and their predecessors. They formed, in fact, a little column by themselves. They had been assigned to jiositions reflec tively in the Fourth and Ninth Provis ional Battalions, but dropped out of line because, as their officers explained, they were placed immediately behind the col ored organizations. Another heavy shower at about 4 'chick preventedjthe dress parade sched uled for 5 o'clock. The President's Keeeption. Washington, May 25. About fifteen hundred persons attended the Presi dent's reception in the East Room, this afternoon. He shook hands with each of them and tlie reception lasted nearly ad hour. Many of the visiting militia took advantage of the opiiortunity and paid their respects to the President. HOSIERY MILL IN DISTRESS. Krone; tit front Kn gland to Share the Bene fits of a Protective Tariff. Providence. R. I., May 25. The Brit ish Hosiery Company at Thornton has posted a notice of a probability of a re duction to one-half the present force or possible shut down. This is on account of the extreme depression of trade and the large stock of unsold goods. This concern was imported from England, plant and os?ratives, in ISiM to work under the advantages of a protec tive tariff. Tlie notice spreads dismay among the operatives, few of whom have saved enough to enable them to re turn with their families to England. In the event of the English help being un able to secure employment elsewhere. the concern will plan to run the mill on half time on reduced wages to save the operatives from starvation. The mill heretofore made only winter goods. but the manager says if the present stress can be weakened, the manufac ture of a variety of goods will lie liegun which will insure plenty of work the year round.

CHURCH POLITICS. Tie Two Presljterian Cbirctes. CAUSTIC SPEECH IN THE CONVEN TION AT ST. LOUIS. Cel. Lhingttaa. ! 6:srg la, lesllst le Or. Sataet a th Sakjsct af Uaiea sr Ca-eperatiaa. St. Loos, May 25. The iTesbyterian General Assembly. South, devoted tlie morning session to argument on organic union. Elder J. T. Livingston, of Geor gia, and Kev. J. M. Potts, of Alabama, spoke in favor of union with tlie North ern Church, and W. II. Parks, of St. Louis, opposed it. The invitation of the Second Presby terian Church of Philadelphia to the As sembly to hold their next session in tliat city and extending their hospitality was declined, as this Assembly has no church in Philadelphia, but they resolved to hold their next session in May, 1888, at Baltimore, and to take a recess on the fourth Thursday in May and proceed to Philadelphia to assist in the celebration of the centennial anniversary of the Re formed Presbyterians of America. They further accepted their quota of the ad dresses. Dr. Smoot, of Texas, attacked the minority reort last night and made a long sjieech against union with the Northern Church. There is not a de mand in the church, he said, for the opening of the question. The church was not to follow in the wake of any political or business movement in this country. They say the war Ls over. Politicians North and South are fixing up their dif ficulties, but where is the connection ? This is not a war church. This is not a cesession church. We hold that any man. no matter whether be was born in Maine or Texas, can be taken into the fellow ship of our church. If we were united with the Northern Church every time we met there would be argument, and dissension and alienation. Ours is not a Southern church, but a church of the United States that differs from the Presbyterian Church of the the United States in the interpreta tion of our common standards; church and State are not united. It is said that we fellows are pestiferous old agitators because we will not unite with the Northern Church now that political dif ferences are settled. It is said tliat the war is over. Well, you have read of the earthquakes which, after they liave passed, have left fissures in plains and granite mountains. The fissures in the plains can lie tilled up, but it will retrain in the mountains, which represents principle, as long as the mountains stand. I mean no discourtesy to any gentleman, but almost all the e preach ers who have gone back into the North ern Church were most rabid during the war. It took two men to hold them sometimes when the Northern Church was spoken of. Hie quiet men stayed the longest and only went out when they hail to; they Lave not gone back. WHEN THE DIVLS.OK BECAME PERMANENT. When the General Assembly met in Columbus, Miss., in 1874, there was so much talk aliout reuniting tliat our com mittee said to the committee of the Northern Assembly that if they would say the political differences tliat caused tho split were formulated in times of great excitement the committee would recommend a consolidation.Tlie Northern committee would not say tliat and there the matter rested. But you established fraternal relations in 1882. Yes, and the Northern Assembly agreed to such estab lishment, but stated that they receded from no principle. Then two granite pillars were erected without an aich at the top, or a bridge at the bottom, repre senting two churclies, showing where they stood and tliat they stood far apart. The speaker reviewed the various ac tions of the Northern Assembly toward the uniting of the churches and then re ferred again to the majority report. He thought the dictation of a description of the union disrespectful to the Northern Assembly, and said: "They have too much honesty and principle to accept these conditions." He advised the aban donment of the position he had heard of to the effect tliat the Northern Church would not accede to the conditions, but having proposed it the Southern Church would have the advantage in the public mind. "If "ou love your Northern brethren as you say you do, don't put them in tliat pition. THEN HE WAS FLAYED ALIVE. Col. Livingston, of Georgia, handled Dr. Smoot with bare knuckles. Col. Livingston said: "When the majority made the report it was out of no disre spect for the fathers of the church, like Dr. Smoot. Tlie speaker admitted that he had represented his people in the Legislature at home, but lie was not a politician. Dr. Smoot's speech was made up of the bloody shirt and an at tack upon the Methodist board. He characte.-izAd Dr. Smoot -as a natural bora iohtician in the pulpit of Christ. He said Dr. Smoot had been mad ever since tlie Federal army came into his county in Kerfcicky and they made him step up every thirty days and take the oath. They could not trust him more than thirtr da vs. Ever since that time he has had no use for any thing North of Mason and Dixon's line. Dr. Smoot said he would not go if the other went. The speaker suggested rather quaintly that they would let him stay. He wanted to know if there was any politics in his predecessor's address concerning Wendell Phillips and Lloyd Garrison. He wondered if tlie Northern man used language more cut ting to the Southern people than that was to the Northern people. Dr. Smoot was different from Garrison. Garrison would say to Smoot: "Your rebellion caused all the Borrow and rain.'' Smoot would say: "Well, you led us to do it." The war was over, add its issues should be buried forever and ever. CO-OPERATION. As to co-operation, the sneaker de clared that Abraham armed his servants and sent them down and helped Lot and and released him and his family. They did not co-operate any more because the town was burned up and Lot's wife was turned into a pillar of salt. Men were supporting the majority report who ere born farther down into the heart of slavery and war than ever Dr. Smoot was. SILENCE MEANS CO? mM f. As the charge tliat the majority had doctored the figures the speaker com pletely overturned the proofs. It was unfair to Presbyteries which liad not lieen heard to say thev were not moving in the matter. Tlie legal presumption was tliat the silence of the I'resbyteries meant their consent. There was no ques tion but that five xke in favor of it, the others either cared nothing for it, or fa vored it. MORE BUSINESS MEN WANTED. As to the charge that this movement might not to follow business men, "the children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light." This Christ had said to certain jieople once. Tlie trouble with the Presbyte rian Church was tliat there had been too little business in it, business men were hard headed and sensible, and the Church should have some of their sense. As to Smoot's idea of sending missionaries to "convert the New Englanders from their Unitarianism and other isms," tho sMaker said he would like to lie one of the missionaries. They might answer him in some .fashion such as this; "Don't you tliink you Southern Presby terians had better go back and tend to those millions of niggers you liave down there." God never intended a sepera tion of his children. THE CAUSE OF DIFFERENCE. A clause in the majority report iqieeially stipulated that the Sou thern Church did not believe in deliverances on imlitics. The Southern Church went out liecause the Northern Assembly, in 1881, in Phila delphia, hail declared citizens to be un der the United States Government de facto and tie jure and no member of the Church should bear arms against it. If this clause was removed, then the Church could go back. How many political deliv erances liad the Southern Church made. Many of them. The people at Omaha had notified this assembly tliat they would accept just wliat the Missouri Synod liad accepted. Dr. Smoot had dug up the bloody shirt and washed it, and waved it, aud raked up every cruel thing the Nortliern Church liad ever said. It was not a fair tiling to make the Northern Church of to-day stand for the Church of ten, or fifteen or twenty years ago. It would liave lieen fa'rer to have taken their later declarations as an expression of opinion. If tha Assembly did not pay more attention to the overtures now made, the Church would lose many border Presby teries. The whole matter of church progress and church growth had lieen hindered by the conflicting Churches !n the field. In all other matters the issues and differences of the war were lieing buried out of sight, aud the Church of God should not lie the last to harmonize. The Keformed Presbyterians Philadelphia, May 25. There is now in session in this city a General Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church in North America, the twenty-ninth annual session of the General Assembly of the United Presbyterian Church of North America, and the eleventh General Council of the Reformed Episcoal Church.

Dattona, May 25. The dull season is upon us. Everyone seems to be drawing a long breath and taking a rest after the whirl of fun and merriment that made the past season so enjoyable. Style is at a discount, plug hat and nobby suits are growing scarce and stunning toilets of walking suits are disappearing for the season is over. Only the flowers keep it up, the lilies that toil not, and the roses tliat blush at tlie thought of their own loneliness. Tlie event of the past week, was an entertainment given by the Daytona Dramatic and Literary Club. Two plays were presented, the farce of "All's Well tliat Ends Well," and the comedy of "Mr. John Smith." Mr. Scott Davis, as John Smith, was the Wight jiartieular star, and sustained his iart most admir ably (a superfluous statement to make to his old professional friends). His con ception and rendering of the character were faultless. The cast brought out nearly the full strength of the club, and many of the parts were to the life. Truth to speak there is an unusual amount of histrionic talent in the club, and an old theatre goer and dramatic critic olmerved in our hearing that one of the scenes ir "Handy Andy," as pre sented some weeks since, would have done credit to any theater. Altogether we're proud of our club. REAL ESTATE. Quiet as times seem to be everywhere, the real estate market here is by no means stagnant. Every day brings in quiries from some quarter for lands for groves or planting, for hounes ready for occujiation and for building sites. We congratulate ourselves u(ion the acquisi tion of such men as Mr. Brower, of Cin cinnati, who has purchased the new resi dence built by Mr. Laurence Thompson, on Richmond avenue, opposite the Epis copal Church. THE NEW STEAM FERRY BOAT. Tlie new steam ferry lioat that is to ply between Daytona and the east side is all ready, awaiting her boiler. She will land at Silver Beach, Memento, ets., starting from near the railroad dejiot on this side. Apropos of that railroad dock, it is now far out into the river, and 8ecuIation is rife as to ultimate inten tions of the railroad authorities will they put in a draw and then run a track to the beach with a dummy, to make hourly or half-hourly trips ? It would be a great convenience to the dwellers on the ieninsula, and to parties wishing to go surf bathing and the like. THE LATE JAMES O. PARKINSON. Our community lias been very much saddened by the death of Mr. James G. Parkinson, of Silver Beach. A Scotch man by birth, he had long identified himself with us, and had made for him self a host of friends. His lungs were hoiielessly diseased by inhaling the im paljiable dust of steel and brass filings, and, though his life was prolonged by coming to Florida, still nature had to succumb at last. He was buried with Masonic honors, the choir of the Episco pal Church furnishing the music. Tlie memliers of the Grand Army Post, and a number or menus roiiowea wie re mains to the grave. NOTES. Everything is brightening up under the showers we are having of late. Tlie leaves and flowers looks as if they had just had their faces washed, and the grass and the trees seem to rejoice. There is talk of a liandsome block of stores going up near the post office this summer, and all indications point to a livelier summer than we've ever had lie- fore. A number of jiersons iqieak of coming over for a little change, fishing, surf- bathing, and the like. Let them come, we'll make them happy. X. THE TURF. London, May 25.

In the fifth race, a mile, while at the post Fugato delivered a vicious kick on the upjier left fore leg of Libretto, the winner of Monday's Derby. Tlie in jured colt trembled as if about to fall. but was led into the paddock with the blood streaming from the wound. After a long consultation beta were declared off. Libretto was allowed to be drawn and the race postponed twenty minutes to give time for new betting. Unite won; Pearl, second; Fugato, third. Time: 1:46 J. Hie accident to Libretto is said by the owner to consist of a flesh wound only. While he does not regard it as lermanently serious, it is sufficient to put the horse out of training and will disqualify tlie colt from running at the St. Louis Derby in which he is entered. Well. Perhaps. New Vork World. Mr. James Preston recently died at Browntown, N. J., at the age of 105. He always took a drink before going to bed.

The Meed for Canning; Factory That Boar Again. CVirrerunniirnre of tht PtiUUka Xm Interlachen, Fla., May 25. Mr. Holman left Interlachen on Wed nesday morning for Springfield, O., where he will attend to business until next Octolier, when lie proposes to re- turn to Florida. Mr. Holman states tliat he does not leave Florida on account of the summer heat, which, by the way, lias not Un felt here as yet. Nothing but business could drive Mr. Holman from his pretty farm on the northern shore of Lake Chi poo. Tlie house upon this farm is quite a model of a Florida residence, with large airy rooms "connected by folding doors, and shaded by wide verandas. Tlie de tached kitchen is also a model of conven ience, which all who build in Florida would do well to copy. This kitehen contains a nice sink, and running water from a windmill tank, also numerous cupboards, a flour barrel closet and other aids to kitchen work, by which the drudgery of hot weather cooking may lie greatly relieved. WANTED A CAXSINO FACTORY. Mr. Holman has so planned his garden anil strawticrry imtch, that he can irri gate at wilL By so doing the plants can lie kept in splendid condition and grow well, but nothing but rain will bring forth a crop of blossoms, even when they are due. There is a fine opportunity here in In terlachen for a canning factory. Dur ing the post and present seasons a large amount of fruit has gone liegging, and much has been hist, simply for the lack of a ready home market, Shipping fruit is well practiced, but every producer lias, at old times, a large amount of d?ad ripe fruit which cannot liear the journey to a distant market and which cannot tie disposed of at home. A small canning factory would meet the demand in this case, besides giving the farmers confidence to raise larger crops, which they would promptly do were a market assured. A big overgrown 1000 horse power es tablishment is not what is needed here at present. A little two man concern will fill the bill, but it must be built on an elastic plan, cspahle of exanding as the business grows, and of almorbing all the fruit and and vegetable products of the country near at liand, which may be offered. A concern of this kind, could establish its own price for fruit and. veg etables, and it could also disioe of most of its out put right in Putnam County. BUSINESS. The patrons of the Florida Southern Railway appreciate very much a new departure in business by Mrs. M. A. Long, whereby iced milk is served to all trains arriving at, and dejiarting from, Intelachen. Already quite a business has been established in thi manner. Mr. K. P. Bickford will immediately erect a building in place of the one de stroyed by fit j on March 28, The raw building is to be in appearance much like the one burned, but will be niade to contain several improvements which will establish it as a model combined store and dwelling. Mr. Peters has re-opened his liakery and restaurant for the season, and pro nounces a two weeks sojourn at the sulpher springs to be quite the correct thing. Mr. B. Steele is improving his store building by the addition of a new show window which will occupy one-third of the front piazza. J. L. Proudfit, M. I)., lately sold his drug businews to Watson & Co., Jack sonville, Fla., who may, unless other ar rangements are made, put in a full line of drugs and grocers' sundries. At present the store is in charge of Mr. J. T. Holiart, who disienses Sedlitz kw ders, castor oil, and tincture of rhubarb with a countenance serene. Francis & Long are shipping peaches to the North every day. Many of their trees are loaded to the ground. THE INTERLACHEN BEAR. Another gentleman is badly excited in regard to the Interlachen bear. Mr. LicketiAtaff lias loaded his trusty Win chester rifle and scarcely lets it get out of his sight or reach day or night. As Mr. L, is living at the Lagonda Hotel, the former home of bruin, there is considerable likelihood tliat the bearnay pay a visit to his old quarters, and to this Mr. L. objects in a most em phatic manner. "If he ever climbs that fence I will shoot him dead," is the way Mr. Lickenstaff expresses his mind and. as the gentleman lately murdered a 'gator in Lake Cliipco, he will be very apt to put his threat in execution upon the slightest provocation. Parties from Tampa liave recently been in Interlachen and, after thoroughly examining tlie place, liave about decided to remain here in preference tn residing in Tampa. Between two hundred and three hun dred people liave already left Interlachen for their Northern homes, yet this bright little town is far from dull, and a gentle man remarked to your correspondent while in Palatka, "Why, look here, there is almost as much going on in Inter lachen now, as there is here in Palatka." SOCIALIH. The Camphor Tree la Florida. Florida Fanner and Fruit Grower. It may not be known to many that the camphor tree has proved as liardr in Florida as the orange. Such is tlie fact, and we wish to call attention to it, for it is one of the most beautiful and interest ing trees in our list of hardy exotics. As far north as Waldo it survived the frost of "845 without the least injury, bearing flowers ana seeds the loliowiug year. Driving out from Waldo last summer, with Judge Kennard to Dr. M. A' Cushing's place, we were not a little as tonished to find a camplior tree growing vigorously outside the fence. Within tlie doctor's enclosure we found a very fine tree about twenty feet in height. It bears a general resemblance in form and foliage to the orange tree. A month before we saw an equally vlgorous but younger camphor tree at Be Lair, near Sanford. Mr. Houston, General Hanford's suiierintendent. also showed us an equally fine specimen of cinnamon tree. It was of similar size and appearance, but its leaves are nar rower. Probably this and the camphor tree may be grown anywhere in Florida, and they may prove of some utility. Both of these trees lielon to the laurel family, which includes tlie sassa fras, red bay, laurel, avocado pear, and many other i ntereating trees, luowtly natives of tropical countries. THE MOMENTOUS QUESTION. BY ETON! AH SCRUB, EMi). n'rittrn for tht ISilatka AVuw. Tlie question of the hour is hogs. Tlie most mdej.en.lent race on earth is the pure, unadulterated razor-lawk. One may liave the ability to advocate men and measures, do and undo important matters, but he falls into insignificance, as far as indeiendence is concerned, by the side of a nine shilling razor-back hg. You can vote, it is true. You can read and understand the operation of the world. You may know this moment what happened the last, in the farther most ends of the earth. You may un derstand and explain why the sun risen and set, the uioon follows the earth, the component parts of water, hut you can not go into your neighbor's field and help yourself to twii t iMitaloen without skinning your reputation. A nine shil ling razor-back hog can. You may lie able to solve the mot dif ficult problem, "talk latin like a parrot," prate ill mut Militical economy witli the ease of a last year's Congressman, roll around the world on a bycicle, sour aluve the t lomU in a balloon, walk on the Ixittoin of the ocean, but you can't curry a ieck of fleas under your neigh I Kir's house. A nine shilling razor-Iwck hog can. Yes, Mr. F.toniuh Scrub, you are right. A Florida razor-buck is the most indeiendent animal on earth. He will trip yon up on the highways and by ways, he can lie on both side of a rail fence at once, he can draw himself through a knot-hole and close the hole so he can't get out again; he can, in the dead hour of the night, when church yards yawn, feast uin the cabbages these hands have planted. Yes, a nine shilling raKor-luu k hog can. "Why don't the Legislature abridge his fredoiii':'" you ak Mrs. Etouiah Scrub, I am surprised to hear you. Why madam a razor-liuck hits more influence than any five hundred men in the coun ty. You may petition the Legislature to lower the whiwky license; to raise their salaris; to vote themselves sup plies; to increase their mileage and with bated breath and whispering humble ness they will listen to you, but ask them to let the nine shilling razor-back hog "root hog or die" on his own dung hill and they will lie as deaf as a joist and as balky us a Texus mule. As you say Mrs. Etouiah Scrub men ain't what they used to be and that most of the legislators ought to lie made over again. Too true, too true, but madam, you and I are too old for that business. "How can the razr-lwck be prevented from ruining your garden" you ask, madam. Ah, there's the rub. It is a question that has puzzled the wisest heads that ever were rocked in a dug-out cradle in the moHtliumhlo log cabin en the wildest wilderness of the nation, and the only answer yet vouchsafed is tliat the legis a tor is afraid of the hog owner's vote. The future question will not be are you a Democrat or a Republican, are you for tariff for protection or revenue only, do you endorse Civil Service or go in for sjMiils; thine questions will be but atoms and will have no more influence than the dust tliat is floating in the air. The question, madam, the momentious ques tion will be, shall a nine shilling razor back hog rule and ruin this glorious country. The race of Etouiah Scrub ex claims with one voice no, and madam the man who is in favor of the hog will lie consigned to the ien of oblivion and lay forever in the trough of despair. W FLAK A. CrrM,M,n,liurt lit Hie ftiiiUha fir.w. Welaka, Fla., May 24. Mr. Orr, of the firm of Reynolds 3c Orr, left for the North on Wednesday. At the (Council meeting on Wednea lay evening, a resolution was laid on the table, by Mr. R. J, Broad, for con. sideration, to the effect that a represen tative from the Council lie sent as a dele gate from Welaka to attend the regular meetings of the I'alittka Board of Trade. The rains which visit us regularly are- doing much good, and the crops are look ing in fine condition. Mr. C. J. Waldron has just harvested a nice hit of outs. A considerable amount of damage is done our State generally, by the jeal ousy which seems to exist lietween dis tricts and stations. One cannot go to one place without hearing ill of another. no matter how near or far, as long as it bears a different name. A new settler, on arriving at his first stopping place, is informed that there, and there alone, is it possible to exist. Here there are no insect jiests. We never suffer from dis ease, and as for frost I Never heard of such a thing. As for A., B., or C, a mile north, south, or east of us, they go in fcr snow shoe, ing in July, and the only way to make a living is by storing ice in the winter, and hunting mosquito in spring and summer, for their plumes and the North ern jioultry market. Does it not occur to those who resort to these measures in order to retain a settler, that they are making themselves very ridiculous, and injuring the whole State in the eyes of any sensible man. There can be no such difference lietween districts, lait where there is smoke, there is fire. It is not tlie district, so much as the location in the district which lias to be carefully se lected. Let honest business men in ev ery districts work to quash these iestilential scamhtl mongers. The tldrd game of the Welaka Po mona series, resulted in a victory for Pomona by one run. However, we don't want to rob our friend Empire of a good item. - All work ami no play, etc., why can not we liave a State or county Istse ball league, cricket association, cock fight ing fraternity or general sliort society? This question is reK tfully submitted as a suggestion to the Palatka Board of Trade. Where the Home Has More Sense. Cincinnati Oannwirvial.
