PALATXA. FLA.. JAN. 31. 1888.
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
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
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

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.

remainder, the net result being irrsgular

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
