Painter, the proprietor of the DeLand Aarieulturist was in town yesterday and gave us a call. Mr. Clough, representing The South, of New York, is in the city in the inter est of his lively publication. W. D. Turnley, editor of the Florida Iiulepemlent, published at ,J.ake Weir, was in town yesterday. We regret not being in the office when he called. Judge W. If. Wigg has just returned from Tallahassee, where be has been to look on the legislators in session. He reports a good time, ami says the Legis lature is making new counties in a hurry. Asa Anians, formerly one of the en gineers on the Florida Southern Railway and one of the most competent men tliat ever pullet! a throttle, is now running one of the fast mail engines on the Jack sonville, Tamjia and Key West Railway, The Board of Trade continues to grow in memttership, and by the meeting next Monday night fully one hundred and twenty-five names will have been enrolled. There were sixteen applica tions filed for meniliership during the last few days. The city was full of smoke yesterday from burning piles of tradi. and the air is ladened with the odors of disinfect ants. Our people are waking up to the importance of cleanlines. and if the good work is kept up we will soon have the cleanest towns in America. An alarm of tire was given about It o'clock yesterday morning, caused by the house of George Barnes, out in New town, catching lire, from some cause, The fire department rescinded promptly but the lire was extinguished long be fore they reached the premises. About eighty line watermelons were received in Palatka, yetttcrday. by Uard- ner, Eaton & Co., from Lndy Lake, Some of them were very tine, weighing as much as forty Kunds each. They were the first of the season offered for sale here, and brought good prices. We do not remember to have noticed mosquitoes ho vicious and hungry as the present (Top.

We sent a re porter along to look after the crowd, and he will tell all about what was said and done on board the boat. Yesterday Capt. J. F. Speck showed ns an old copy of the Watchman of the South, a religious par published in Rich mond. Ya., on July 5, 1S:.IN. It was a neatly printed sheet, and was among the paiers left by the father of . Capt. Speck. He also showed us old copies of the famous Salem Almanac, which is said to lie more popular than the Bible among the people of North Carolina. A little misunderstanding arose at the engine house, yesterday, after the alarm of fire, in regard to the hose lielonging to the hose companies, in which Marshal Manucy, and Messrs. Peter- niann, Loring, Bond and others took part. We learn that the matter will lie carried liefore the Mayor, this morning. when ho will lie called uisiu to straighten the tangled web. That Water Pressure. In justice to the Water Works Com pany, we make public the statement of Mr. Wm. Rutherford, Master Mechanic of the Florida Southern Railway, who called at The News office yesterday. Mr. Rutherford says that just after the building of Milton Coojier fell on the night of the fire, he had the hose of the Florida Southern shops attached to the hydrant to see if anything was the mat ter with the pressure. A thorough test was made, and Mr. Rutherford says the water was thrown as far and as strong as at any previous time. He attributes the weak pressure at the fire to the ex treme length of the hose and tlte large noezle used. Like the majority of our citizens, Mr. Rutherford is also strongly in ravor or having telephone communi cation with the water works, so that the engineer can always be notified when a fire occurs.

SCB-TB0P1CAL EXPOSITION. Cat. rarbes Addrsssss a Mm Ins; ml Palatka Cltlsw. Yesterday a number of the citizens) of Palatka met at the Board of Trade rooms to hear what CoL W. T. Forbes had to say in regard to the proposed Sub-Tropical Exposition to be held in Jacksonville this winter. CoL Forbes presented and explained the plans of the grounds and building that had been drawn up for the use of the Exposition. The building which is described further on looks very fine on paper, and is so arranged that all plants, shrubbery and exhibits will be shown to the very best advantage. The meeting was organized by elect ing Maj. W. P. Couper chairman, and Martin Griffin, Jr., secretary. CoL Forbes being introduced spoke at some length and explained fully the plans anl purposes of the Exposition, and read the prospectus as published in most of the newsitapera of the State. lie stated that the city of Jacksonville had subscribed $30,000, and the railroad and transportation companies another ;,000. From 30,000 to 40,000 more, however, was wanted, and the towns throughout the State would be called on to make up that amount by purchasing the remaining shares. So soon as $.j0,000 in cash is in hand, the Exposition Com pany will be organized, the grounds leased and contracts for the buildings let. It is iuiKrtant, says Col. Forbes, that all subscriptions be sent in at once, so that the work can be pushed and be readr for business by January 1 of next year. A feature of the Exposition will be the bazaar for the sale of fancy oranges and other fruits. By this means an exten sive home market is expected to be built up for our fruit growers. The following report, which was read by Col. Forbes, will give a good idea of what is proposed and what it will take to do it : REPORT O" SUB-COMMITTEE OS PLANS. Col. J. E.Hart. Chuirman fieneral Committee on ub-Tropival Exposition: SIR Your sub-committee on "Plans and Prospectus respectfully submit the following rejiort: PLANS.

It is our opin ion that should the subscriptions to capital stock realize a larger amount than mav be required for the purposes specified above, a part of it could be profitably employe in the pur chase f curiosities and other articles available as exhibits, to lie sold ata rotit during the Exposition. e believe that the greatest advan tage to the State of Florida, the city of Jacksonville, the other cities and towns of the State, and the transiiortation com panies and hotel proprietors, as well as to the shareholders of the Exposition Company will be gained by making this Exposition a complete display of the pro ducts of the tropics, as well as of the re sources and productions of r lorn la. and that although this cannot be entirely couqinssed the first year, this pur(iose should be kept steadily in view, and realized as soon as practicable. We believe it to be entirely feasible, beginning this year with a capital stock paid up from $75,000 to $100,000. to ac cumulate gradually such a collection of rare trees, plants, fruits, flowers and an imals from the tropical countries, in ad dition to the fine display that can be uiade by the State of Florida, as can laj found in no other one place in this coun try, and which, under judicious man agement by adding annually to the col lection, will eventually be unsurpassed in any country. Our ultimate purpose, kept steadily in view, should lie not merely to provide a place of temporary diversion and enjoy ment tor our own people and our regular numlier or annual visitors, but as rapid ly as our means will permit, to acquire for our Exposition, such a well merited reputation as will attract annually in creasing numbers of visitors tosee group ed in one place such a display or rare ex hibits as can he round no where else.' On motion Messrs. S. J. Kennerly, M. Loeb ami Martin Griffin, Sr.. were ap pointed a committee to canvass the city and secure subscriptions. Those present seemed greatly interest ed in the movement, and the committee will no doubt Is able to dispose of many of the shares. It Was a Good Oae. Yesterday afternoon, T. L. McCoy, the well known green grocer, on the corner of Lemon and Peck streets, presented The Palatka News with a fine water melon from the large stock he has on hand. It was large, ripe and luscious. and Tom has plenty more just like it. rhich he is selling at from 60 to 75 cents each. Saspirioas Jeffersooiaoisa. Boston Globe. We observe that of late several of our Republican contemporaries are disposed to adopt the Jenersonian idea that the best government is that which governs least. The doctrine is a xood one. but ! the Republican party baa never accepted or acted upon it, and its praises have a suspicious fosind when sung by Repub lican organs. CITING GENERAL WARNING. IMtif of th County Iloard of Health Pnsanac to Qaaraatia. A meeting of the Board of Health was held yesterday afternoon, at which it was ordered that a telegram be address ed to Dr. John P. Wall. President of the Board of Health at Tampa, asking if there were any cases of yellow fever in Tampa and if strict quarantine were es tablished. The secretary was instructed to inform the health authorities at Enterprise and Sanford that if refugees from Key West are allowed to pass through those cities that the Board of Health of Putnam County would immediately order quar antine against them. It was further ordered that the officials of the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railway Couijiany, the Florida Southern Railway Com j .any and the De Bary line of steamers be warned that if they bring refugees from Key West over their lines the Board of Health will im mediately order quarantine of all trains and boats. The Board ordered two thousand cop ies of the following circulars printed : In view of the fact that yellow fever has gained a foothold in the State of Florida, due notice is hereby given to every citizen of Palatka and every owner, or agent, or ccuant of any and all premises or vacant lands located within the limits of the city of Palatka. to immediately proceed and disinfect with chloride of lime (one pound to four gallons of water) every privy vault located thereon, and every accumulation of garbage or waste material on said premises.
