There was good attendance of the Gala Week Executive Committee last night The meeting to-night should be equal to it. Have we fire buRS amongst as? Re cent investigations would seetn to show it. ' Oar readers are familiar with the facts which hare been laid before them MTeral times. It would pay to make a ' thorough investigation for clues. It is proposed that a meeting of mer- chants and property owners be called this afternoon at the Board of Trade rooms to take measures for catching the fire bug who seems to be at work in this city. Prompt work must be done or our city will suffer a great loan. The fire bug must be caught. Those who have been wondering at the scope of the Inter-State Commerce bill which seemed to cover the t reimpor tation of the country like a plaster will be pleased with the decision of the Supreme Court yesterday on the case from Alabama. The decisions of the Inter State Commerce Commissioners them selves have run with the opinions of the Supreme Court limiting the interpre tation of that act. The amount of subscriptions received by the Finance Committee, while not all that is needed, is enough to warrant the Executive Committee in going ahead 'with the preparations for the Gala Week. The press of the State has men tioned Palatka's proposed festival of sport very generally. From the inquiries sent in to the committee it appears that the interest felt in it outside of this city is considerable already. Beside the pro gramme of the Executive Committee it is likely that private enterprises will "make dates" at Palatka for that week. There will be something for every taste and plenty of it. The bill for the establishment of ex perimental stations at agricultural col leges has passed both houses of Congress, and now only awaits the President's signature to become a law. As amended by the Senate the bill appropriates the money directly from the Treasury, in stead of from the proceeds of the sales of public land. This will enable the provisions of the bill to be put in force more directly. The agricultural experi mental stations now maintained in many States have done a great deal to advance American agriculture and to bring the practice nearer to the precision of science and the economical basis of mechan ical art. THE HEW EXODUS. The proposition to colonize the ne groes of the South in South America does not seem to meet with favor among the leaders of that race. Not all the pretended sympathy for their supposed oppressed condition among Northern Republicans can blind them to the facts. They have more good sense than their counselors give them credit for. It is pretty well known among them what be result of former efforts of this nature were. The earliest of these colonization schemes was that which sought to erect a negro republic in Liberia on the coast of Africa. This colony was protected by the United States and everything pos sible was done to set it on the road to orosperity. The latest representative sent there, Preston, has returned. Ac cording to his report the colonists have retrograded and he, a man of color him self, felt as little at home amongst them as a white man would. ile was thoroughly dingus ted with his post, which he will resign, and advises Ameri cans of his race to rem&in where they are, that they are better off in A merica than they will be elsewhere. A fear years ago there wu an exodus of negro farm labor to Kansas. It is sig nificant that the headquarters of those proposing the new exodus is at Topeka, Kansas. The "exoduaters" have found their way back to their oil homes, as many as could get back and the re mainder are not satisfied either with the Kansas climate or the Kansas people. They do not find the Northern people as congenial as the white people with whom they associated in their old homes. The climate is not suited to them and the cold winters, blizzards and hot summers, the extreme annual range of the ther mometer, is severe on them. The fact is the negro is nowhere so well off as right here in the South where he is understood. In no other section are political offices accorded him so freely. Very few Northern cities have any negro office holders. Here in Pa latka we have a negro Councilman and two policemen of that color, while in the trades the two races work side by side. Very few Northern cities have ne gro policemen and we doubt if any can show a negro Councilman. The well behaved of that race have no cause for complaint. They do not com plain. If they did no better cure for their discontent could be found than a trip to Northern Republican cities. In this scheme to transport them to South America they are quite capable of per eeiviniE for themselves that some one is looking for a means of lining his pockets. If the surplus negro population were re moved from some counties of the South to the new Western States it might be better for all concerned bnt we doubt if it would for the negro, fie will not go to South America, however. He is loath to leave the country he is ac quainted with. La Justica of Madrid. Spain, says: "The red hot telegrams from Key West, published in American papers, in refer ence to the situation in Cuba, are evi dently sent with the purpose of inducing the Madrid Government to cause the Havana authorities trouble." If the mis-government in Cuba con tinues the American government may be obliged to give the Havana authori ties troubles ErmKiaaaws la a FrsttUtts EtaU. If Rvritavtev. of PtartiMkL Ms.. is to be believed that town, where; the most stringent of all prohibition law prevails, is in a deplorable condition, as far as drunkenness is osocerned. Mr. Uavlev declares that there is as much drunkenness there as anywhere in the Union, and that is prevails m mm prim ary and even in the kindergarten schools. buca a cnarge sounas so nomoie as to be scarcely possible, bat it has received corroboration by the arrest of a boy of twelve at one of the schools so arana that be had to be carried away by the police. Notwithstanding- this, we can not but hope that Mr. Bailey' dismal picture of -drunken boys is somewhat exaggerated, and that this vie ia not so prevalent as lie declares. B0 State in ine union amm mgui more earneetiy to put oown nranitw neas by means of the law. Half a cen tury ago Maine began legislating against whisky, paosing a very stringent prohibition law. There has not been a session of the Legislature since that has not sought to extend and fortify the law to make it more perfect; yet. after a half century of experience, the Proiiibitionist themselves confetie failure, declare that drunkenness is more frequent in the chief city of their State than anywhere else in the country, and that even buys get intoxicated there and they call for some change in the law, or some altogether new -system. The prohibition papers want to try something ele; it certainly is time to try it, for nothing could be much worse than the condition of affairs now exist ing there. A high license law might have that effect it has so resulted in most of the other Slates that have tried it but whether it does or not, the peo ple of Maine owe it to themselves either to refute the charges made against their people by their own ministers, or to find some means to break ud the prevalent drunkenness, and particularly their drunkenness amomr boys, if the youtn become thus corrupted, the future of the State is indeed threatened.

The stock market was in the main trons' and active at both enda of the day, but dull and stagnant during- the remainder, the net result being irrsgular changes from last week's Bgures, The senti ment was quite bullfeth in the early morn ins; and everyrhinr advanced for a short time, but It soon became evident that free liquida tion was In prograav and the advance as well as activity was checked. The bears used the great Are la this city as an argument against the market, the inference being that securities held by the Insurance com nan tea would come upon the market. To this was sdded reports of rate cutting- in the West, but the effect upon the lit was .not of special Importance, though buytnjr was temporarily checked. Toe principal interest centered in coalers aad grangers, but of tneie Delaware and Hudson alone fluctuated over a range of snore than percent. Keatltnir. howeuer. became a leader once more m the mat hour, when buyina was better than at a ny other time of the day. Con spicuous weak snot was Missouri PsciOc which was affected by persistent rumors in re gard to it aiMi its kindred stocks; free realisa tions were in great part responsible for the temporary set back or the forenoon, but these eeastil. Price were Arm to strong, with frac tional advances, duriLg the first half hour, when a sagmng tendency set in. which lasted nntil late in the day. prices dropping below the Hnt llirure in many cases.
