IToMiltid Steward, Some enterprising individual proposes the periodical publication of a 'list, to contain the names of persons who do not4 pay their debts promptly, and intended for private circulation among merchants and business men. The principal fea ture of the scheme appears to be the ?" annual subscriition to be paid by those who desire to secure the benefits of the plan. The principal objection to this sort of thing iii that notorious "beats' are too generally known to require such a "list, while the danger of being called to ac count perr.inally or through the medium or damage suits for inadvertencies in as tgning to a place in such "lists' the names of reiectable and honorable in dividuals, manifestly imjniirs the useful ness of the publisher thereof. Among the many distinguished winter visitors now sojourning in St. Augus tine is the Honorable Archibald Mc Kellar, of Ontario, Canada. Mr. anil Mrs. McKellar are visiting Mr. and Mrs. Oeorge Lotmt. their daughter and son- in-law. Mr. McKellar, who is a jierfect type of the "fine old English gentle man." notwithstanding the fact that he is a Highland Scotchman, was for eigh teen years a inemlwr of the Canadian Parliament, his name ls-ing a household word among the hanly and intelligent Sootch Canadians, who ever looked to Archie McKellar" for sulistantial championship and advice in all the diili cultiesand vicissitudes incident to the settlement and occupation of that rugged but beautiful and now pros;erous coun try. Although well advanced in life, Mr. McKellar possesses nil the fire and vim of a man of forty. His eyes are as bright as a lxy"s, and beam with good nature and good will toward all. It would be a "national blessing" if we could transplant to our Legislative halls this able and experienced Parliamentar ian; and a rare benefit if St. Augustine could have the privilege of welcoming him as a citizen. The dismissal of the charge of assault with a deadly weaixm against Private Snyder yesterday, by Judge MacWU liams, has given rise to great dissatis faction in some quarters; but it should be remembered that the gravamen of the offense charged was not in any way con nected with the question whether or not the sentry had a right to loave his ot, enter upon territory over which the military authorities have no jurisdiction save under martial law and interfere in a melee which an authorized repre sentative of the police authorities of the city was attempting to quell. The ques tion of conflicting jurisdictions did not come before the magistrate, and he could look out to such porflons of the evidence as bore upon the fact alleged in the complaint. This question of juris diction hs given trouble heretofore, and it would seem as if the present is an aus picious time to have it fully and per manently settled; a consummation likely to be attained by the appeal of Snyder from the judgment of the Mayor, fining him for resisting an officer in the discharge of his duty. In the trial of the apiwal, it it is properly prosecuted and defended, the opportunity of settlement of the question by the Circuit Court will be amply presented, and its final solution will be a benefit to all concerned. The St. Augustine Yacht Club. No institution of the Ancient City has yielded more proline retults of substan tial benefit than the St. Augustine Yacht Club. Organized in 1874 by Capt. K. F. Arm strong, then, as now, one of the city's most valuable and devoted friends, it soon became a powerful agent in the work of bringing to the notice of the wuHk, .... l.l - 1 ... uuow w ix, iuriteu citizens of the country the incomparable advan tages of St. Augustine as a winter resort. Capt. Armstrong's wide knowledge of the worla and his extensive and valuable acquaintance, especially m nautical circles, gave bim exceptional atl van tages) in the execution of his par pone, and it was not long before promi nent members of the New York Yacht Club, and others of almost equal celebrity became deeply Interested throngh their membership in the St. Augustine club, in the improvement and rejuvenation of the old town. Many of the friends and acquaintances of the members had their attention directed thither, who might not otherwise have had any special mo tive. ami it soon became apparent that St, Augustine was to become the winter home of a Large population distinguished for their wealth, taste and a diapositiod to bestow benefits upon their chosen jro teye, commensurate with its innumera ble and unquestionable natural advan tages. One of the notable ' incidents in the history of the club is its famous presen tation of a magnificent silver cup to Mr. Burgess, the designer of the now cele brated yacht Volunteer. This exquisite souvenir, declared by Tiffany to be one of his masterpieces if not the best tiling ever done by this famous house has never been seen here, but there ex ists a splendid photograph of it, a peep at which was vouchsafed to a Daily News reporter the other day. No mere di-tcription of it can give any adequate idea of its grace of model or richness of itaiL The modest quarters on the sea wall. near the foot of the Plaza and adjacent to the basin, erected and occupied by the club in its infancy, still seem to suffice for its present needs, notwith standing the large increase in its mem bership and influence since its inception; but it may not be long before the con struction of new quarters, worthy of tbe purpose, and magnificent, beyond any thing yet erected in St. Augustine, will be commenced. The present orgauization of the club is as follows: Commodore Andrew E. Douglass, of New York. Vice Commodore E. V. Clark, of New York. Secretary and Trensurer II. F. Arm strong, of St. Augustine. Measurer C. W. Staelin, of Beulah Orange Jroves, near St. Augustine. Fleet Surgeon Dr. Andrew Anderson, of St. AngUKtine. The Case Against SoyJer. A considerable number of ersons con gregated in the office of Judge MacWil- iams yesterday morning anxious to learn the sequel to the disturlnnce which occurred near the tarracks on Friday last, in the termination of the trial of Private Snyder upon a-charge made by Police Officer JJiddlecomb of assault with a deadly weapon. The evidence of the prosecuting w it- ness and of Mr. Grady, in whose quarrel with Lieutenant Wilcox this charge originate!, was heard, and the accused was heard in his own belialf, as was also Lieutenant Wilcox, tbe accused being represented by counsel. The evidence, as reviewed by the magistrate in his de cision, showed that Snyder had no in tention of resisting the officer, as he did not know Pidllecomb was an officer. The evidence (taking Snyder's own testimony into consideration) was on dieting as to whether Snyder was or was not ordered by hissuerior officer to 'stick- or ''shoot" the policeman. At tention was directed to the orders, emanating from Snyder's superiors, to the effect that it was his duty to quell any disturltance that might occur ''on or rear his post," hue whetlier the word 'near' was intended by the military au- thoritieri who promulgated the orders to refer to any point near the sentry's post, tcithiit or without, the territory lying un- ler military jurisdiction, was held to le a question not involved in the preser.t inquiry; and the magistrate decided, upon the evidence as to the assault, that the intention to commit an assault bail not been sliown as charged, and so dis missed the case. A Leap Year Episode. rather amusing scene occurred in the parlor of one of our hotels Sunday night. The hour of 9:30 approached, and but four x-rona were left in the ixirlor three ladies, one single, lone, lorn gen tleman. Just think of it, and Ieap Year, too! One of the fair damsels hail been and was stilt monopolizing the lone, lone gentletiKin. ami waiting patiently fsr the two other ladies to retire, but they were in no hurry. They had evi dently mu le up their minds to outsit the pair, and would probably have succeeded hail not one of them unfortunately been reminded by a gent.lt voice from some where that it was time she retired to her room. So the pr. crest fallen young lames nail to retire and acknowledge that they had been outsat. We don't know exactly how long; the lone, lorn gentleman was kept up talking over Leap Year matters, but we shall certainly look for an early invitation to a wed ding. Carpenters' and Joiners' BalL The Brotherhotxl of Carpenter and Joiners of America, of Local Union No. 259, will give a grand Imll to-night at Myers Assembly Kooms, by which name the hall heretofore called Myers Hall anil Ilowatt's Hall will hereafter be known. The floor committee is com posed of Messrs. II. W. Patrick. R. E. Hall, W. T. Henderson, O. E. Dragdou and C E. Matley. COS2I03 031 THE CLIMATE. Florida and the Northwest ia Contrast. How to Populate the State. Think of it, my countrymen! Here are we revelling in almost perpetual sun shine, amid roses of giant growth and every hue, picking ripe and luscious strawberries from tbe vines, and travel' ling by easy stages from the sentiruen- a1 and lovely to the substantial and gross enjoying green peas, ripe toma toes, lettuce and cabbages of oar own recent raising; while away op North and westward tbe blizzanla are blowing howling around the chimneys, chillinif the very marrow in tlie bones of our compatriots. Aye, killing them, as we learn from the newspaper accounts that no less than two handled and fifty peo ple perished, absolutely froze to death during the late cold wave in the West. Nothing but absolute stubborn ignor ance and foolhardy blindness can keep people in such a climate. Ia it that lands are cheaper? No. WHOLESALE CI0CCI1ES. O. U. SMITH. CHA3. E. CARD. - C. J. TEDDER. " " " - W. LYON rfc CO., WHOLESALE GROCERS AND DEALEK3 IX IAKDWAHE. CKOCKEUY, liriLHING MATERIAL, ETC. Lyon Bunding, St. Augustine, Fla. Western lands are held at five, ten and fifteen dollars per acre, and can only be had at those pi ioes far removed from railroads and markets. Can they raise a cow or an ox cheaper there than here? No, nor for ten times the amount. Here in Florida we can raise cattle at an actual cost of one dol lar per head, and they are worth as much here as they are with the western settler. " Of course, at present our cattle are not equal in size to the Western stock. but I do not see what difference that makes to the producer when he can get no more for his large animal than the Iloridian can here for the smaller. One great incentive to the Western mmigrant seems to be the fact that he can raise wheat. This great staple will grow out there in the West while here he must turn his attention to something else. The average immigrant is a crea- tire of one idea, and I suppose the liest way to enlighten him is to give him about five years of western life and then show him the advantages of a climate where can 1 grown in paying quanti ties forty varieties of food for man or beast; while in the West they can only produce two, and freeze to death while trying to do that. Another eculiar fallacy is the old story of a "debilitating," or "enervat ing" climate. What nonsense! There is just as much energy among most classes of native and imported Florid- ans as there is among similar classes of people elsewhere in America. Why, then, is Florida so sparsely pop ulated? What effort has been made to induce settlers to come here? Little or none. I eople landing at Castle oarden iiave never heard of this State and never will until theState Government appoints an immigration agent and places him where, by constant and energetic effort. he may be able to divert the westward flowing stream of foreign brawn. There are, besides, at this time, in the West, a sufficient numlier of discon tented farmers, suffering from the effects of the grasshopper plague, drought, hot winds or blighting cold, to fill this State from Tallahassee to the Gulf; but they do not know of it. They are as benighted as the heathen. We need missionaries- land missionaries to go out there and tell these sufferers of "the promised land" of Florida. Cosmos. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE, 'Sitting Dull March" at the Ponce de Iicon concert this evening. A magnificent reflector of Roman de sign has been placed in its position over the grand chandelier, in Grace Church. The large wrought iron frames for the lanterns on the outer walls of the Ponce le Leon grounds have been put in their places. Mr. Charles I Bucki. the young mil lionaire manufacturer of Ellaville, Fla., with his bride, have rooms at the Ponce de Leon. Mr. Oeorge L. Seavey. of Boston, ac companied by his sister, Miss Seavey, and Mrs. J. G. Iring, arrived on Sunday at the Ponce de Ijeon. Mrs. J. II. Cumins and her daughter. Miss Nina, of New York, who have been guests of the St. George for some weeks, returned to Jacksonville on Fri- lav. Messrs. J. L. El! wood and wife, H. Qlwood and wife and C. W. Marsh and wife, who arrived in the harlior on the yacht Augusta on Saturday, are stopping I at the Ponce de Lron. Sheriff Hernandez has posted notices throughout the county warning against the felling of trees across navigable streams, under penalties imposed by Chapter K), Section 10, of McCIellan's Digest. Mr. Roliert H. Coleman, of Cornwall, Pa., president of the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railway Company, and Mr. C. C. Deming, of New York, treasurer of tbe same company, are at the Ponce de Leon. Judge MacWilliams yesteiday fined Albert Graham, colored, 3 and costs for appropriating money paid him for wood for Mickler Bros., and bound Owen Swain, also colored, over to appear at the next term of the Circuit Court to answer a charge of larceny of about $o0 worth of clothing. The outside work on the Cathedral is nearly finished. The scaffolding at the rear of the front wall was removed yes terday, the handsome cross, embedded in a golden globe, having been gilded and the apex of the wall finished. The old belLs are in their positions, but they need cleaning before the appearance of that portion of the work will look finished. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat of a date during the engagement of Gilmore's celebrated band in that city, sav s of Professor Wagner, now a member of Joyce's Ponce de Leon Orchestra: "Baa soon soloists are very scarce. In the person of 1 1 err Wagner Mr. Gil more baa an artist," Herr Wagner ia also an expert performer on the now favorite Spanish instrument, the mandolin, and will give lessons thereoa. Tbe "only cases before the Mayor yea- HARDWARE, CROCKERY, ETC. terday were charges of fast driving against Bill Haywood and Sid. Hay wood, two reckless mule-punchers, who, riding their grand mules around s. corner at full speed, nearly ran over a gentle man, hit wife, and two little children, who were approaching from an opposite direction. One of the culprits, beins chiefly to blame, was fined $5 and costs a fair warning to many of bis class, who are becoming too indifferent to the value of the lives and limbs of others. The other case was against J. A. Mc Donald for selling liquor on Sunday, and the charge not being sustained by the proof, it was dismissed. EOTEL ARRIVALS.
