Address, THE SEWS, PALATKA. FtOBIUA. PALATKA. FLA.. FEB, 14, 1888. OTJE WEEK OF SPOET. The pleasures of the Gala Week begin to-day. The committee which has hail the arrangements in cliarge have had little time in which to do their work. There has been some criticism of their arrangements, we believe, but this carp ing;, as usual, has been mostly from those who could not be induced to take a hand themselves. They are always the readiest critics. Some, too, have lost sight of the fact that the idea un derlying the whole plan was that some thing should be done to induce the peo ple of other cities and towns and the ag ricultural community to visit Palatka by the hundreds and thousands for a few days. More than this, it was the idea of inducing tourists, the citizens of other States, to visit Falatka, and see what can be done in the way of jwpular sports at a time when Northern states are cov ered with snow and Northern waters locked in ice. It was not to put up prizes for our own people to compete for nor to induce yachtmen and (rood shots and strong armed watermen to come here that Palatkans might win prizes from them. There' is very litrle-e,tliat feeling, "however, and what exists is not based on ungenerosity but a misconception. Every one in Palatka will agree in giv ing a cordial welcome to our visitors. May they be numbered by the ten thou sand. We wish to see all Florida and all the strangers that are her guests, in our streets this week. We hope they will carry away with them such pleasant recollections that when the Gala Week is repeated next year they may all re turn to help us be joyful. The great events of the week, of course, will be the two matches between the professional oarsmen, Teenier, llamm and McKay. Each will be a hard fought contest for championship honors. The news of this race will be sent everywhere and the time record will appear in all the year books that give space to such events, in such almanacs as the Clipper Almanac and those published by the great papers. Those who are so fortunate as to see them will see two magnificent struggles letween three well matched athletics. The two races at Punta Gorda show how well matched thev are. The first was over a three mile course. Teenier rcwed from the start to the finish in twenty minutes and four seconds beating McKay by four seconds and llamm by six. The next day, Saturday, the wind was high" and the water very rough, filling their shells several times, but Teemer won the race in forty-one min utes, forty -six seconds, beating McKay by four seconds, Ilamm's boat filling so badly as to throw him behind. To-morrow and Thursday Messrs. llamm and McKay will -work hard to take the honors from the champion, John Teemer, The working boat races to-day will lie of considerable interest. There is not likely to be so much of a contest of skill as one of strength acd pluck, while there will lie plenty of fun in the shad boat races if there is a light wind. It will be "Get there, Eli." All the same, it will take knowledge and "science" for Eli to get there. The champion scullers have consent ed to superintend this race as judge, time keeper and starter. The rifle shooting is something which should be encouraged. So long as the arts of warfare exist and it looks now as though the ploughshare might yet be superseded by some new invention tie fore the swords are converted into inno cent agricultural tools so long will it be an honor to any State to have a good body of marksmen in its militia. We are a long way off from the time when each town or parish had its butt for citi r.ens to practice on, but marksmanship is still a valuable acquirement. Practice with the rifle trains the eye and hand, steadies the nerves and makes the militia man a better soldier, giving him more conGdence in himself. The ball to-night should be a crowded affair not too much crowded for com fort, but enough for pleasure. Particu lars concerning it will lie found in our local columns. Military costumes will mingle with civilian dress and the cos tumes of the ladies will gleam brightly amid the gray and the black. Ample arrangements have been made for re freshments of the inner man, and for good music, to keep the dance going un til the small hours of to-morrow morn ing. isitors arrived in great numbers, yes terday, giving promise of a great at tendance during the week. Each day's programme presents points of much in terest. We hope and believe that be fore the week closes everyone will be satisfied with Palatka's Gala Week and will wish to see it repeated. The addresses of several persons who wrote to The Pulatka News for samples of a new material for hats and other pur poses have been lost. Those who failed to receive answers will please send us their addresses on postal cards. Every train and boat that comes to Palatka from the North is crowded. The tourists are arriving in great numbers. We like to see them, to have them enjoy our incomparable climate. The coolness yesterday was a great re lief after the exceeding warmth of last week. It promises moderately cool weather for the next few days. TheilTreaty. New York Star. There is in this city much sympathy with the opposition to the proposed Brit ish treaty, on the ground that it would needlessly render extraditable a new class of alleged offenses, and would lie altogether one-sided in its operation, as the allegations of such violations of law always proceed from England against persons in the United States, and never from our country with respect to persons in Great Britain. , """"" THE Waif front the Pine Woods. CorreifnAKiuye nfthr. Ptualka A'eet. HrsTiNOTON, February lit It is ever through the pine woods that the traveler wends his way from Hunt ington, but on the road to Fruitland six miles distant the monotony is re lieved by the superb magnolias and oaks which are dotted along the way. There are also many clearings for orange groves, some of which are in splendid condition, while others are just strug gling for existence. . The idea prevails very generally at the North that oranges grow wild, that the soil of Florida is so adapted to them they will attain to a vigorous growth with little care, and all he has to do is to plant a few hundred trees anywhere and in a t winkling he will reap a rich har vest of oranges. Therefore, it is a great surprise when he learns that, though native to the soil, they will never grow like weeds, but, on the contrary, they require far more care and attention than any fruit orchard at the North. Nothing worth having can be obtained without lalior, and orange groves are no exception to the rule, as is evident at half a glance, when one drives about the country and observes the vast difference in groves. It is not unusual to see a healthy, magnificent grove side by side with a miseiable, sickly looking one; nothing but a fence to separate them." There is the same air and the same sunshine and the same soil, yet on the one side the trees are large and symmet rical, and brilliant with their green and gold, the leaves shining like the polished surface of a mirror, and the fruit fair and luscious; while on the other side, the trees are stunted, the leaves faded, and the fruit inferior and scanty; the one showing the result of a high degree of cultivation; the other the result of an equally high degree of negligence. This rich and careful cultivation is re paid nos only by a vastly increased harv est, but by a much-finef quality of fruit, and the great variety of oranges in Florida is another surprise to the North erner. The oranges of tins high pine land have quite a different flavor from those of the groves farther south, espe cially those upon the Indian River, and many of them have a much closer and finer grain, but the shades of difference are exceedingly delicate and they are all delicious. To find oranges in perfection, however, one must eat them in Florida, for much of their sweetness and juici ness is lost in transportation. In the climate of Florida, its genial warmth, its soft and soothing air, its perpetual sunshine relieved by oc casional refreshing cloudiness and showers, and in its ceaseless, untir ing verdure and bloom, there is a peculiar fascination, and to open out the splendid resources of this "Land of Flowers" there are needed the energy, the enterprise and the thrift of the first settlers of the North. The Pilgrim Fathers, pioneers in a most inhospitable land, made springs of water to fi-iw out from the rocks, and converted New England into a great gar den, not withstanding that for several months in the year its rivers are ice bound and its hills and meadows are buried beneath the snow. It is not the palatial hotels like the Ponce de Leon and the Casa Monica that will populate and build up Florida, de sirable and delightful as these may be, but it is the small householders who will keep their houses, grounds and groves in order. With a little care every yard in Florida might lie a rose bower, every house like an Italian villa, with its drapery of vines, its majestic shade trees, and its broad avenues of pine or oak or palmetto. The labor would be much lighter than that which trans formed the wilds of New England, but it would need to be equally persevering and systematic. A n lorn la home should be the very perfection of a home, all nature here is so gentlt, so generous, so healthful and so sympathetic, and as we write, we have a vision of its enchanting loveliness in the coming future, when its now deso lated plains shall lie converted into land scape gardens, teeming orchards, and its great forests shall be preserved for the value of their varied woods, and for their many uses, as well as for their marvel ous beauty. Branching off from the Fruitland road a mile or two is the Welaka sulphur spring, near the Beecher grove, but there are so many cross roads, and without guide posts or land marks of any kind, that it is only by frequent inquiries, much conjecture and a good deal of wandering, that we found ourselves at last in the vicinity of the place. We fastened our horses to a tree, and very doubtfully and carefully made our way through a narrow path, putting out long olfactories to catch the familiar odor of the sulphur. When it unmis takably reached us, w hastened for ward, until we came at last unexpectedly upon a most exquisite little sheet of wa ter, embosomed in a shaded delL It was extremely picturesque, and its being so entirely hidden gave it a little charm of mystery. The water is a living spring, clear as crystal, pleasant and delicate to the taste; not strong enough to be of any great medicinal value, but were it more accessible, or near some large hotel, it would doubtless prove a mine of wealth. The excursion train to DeLand last week was detained about two hours in the middle of the day at Huntington, be cause of some fault of the engine. It was a long train of nine cars, and as it is always "an ill wind that blows no body any good," it gave the excursion ists an opportunity to see something of Huntington, and of the fine orange groves here. Nothing more clearly proves the tem per and breeding of travelers than these unexpected delays, and to the gentle souls disposed lo make the bestof things, the detention in these beautiful woods, where they could obtain plenty of crack ers and cheese, and cider, and oranges, was rather an agreeable episode, es pecially when contrasted with a deten tion of several hours in a snow bank at the North, which was recently the ex perience of some of our friends. The very thought of it makes us shiver! Mrs. E. F. Wilson, whose beautiful house was burnt to the ground four weeks ago, has received the full amount of the insurance from the Hartford Fire Insurance Company. Such promptness m payment is most cheering and com mendable, and that alone would mark the high standing of the gowpany.

E. M. F. AN EYE OF FIRE. Wonderful Submarine Exploration b Means ol tat Electric Light. Chicago Times. When if was discovered that an arti ficial light that very closely resembles the natural light of day could be j to- cared from electricity, and that it could be so easily provided as to take, in a great measure, the place of gas for light ing purposes everybody was naturslly astonished and thought that the elec tricians were the greatest men on earth. The new system was hardly old enough to be an assured success before a lot of wise men began considering the advisabil:ty of devoting this light to a greater purpose than that of merely lighting up the humdrum of everyday life. As an experiment a small incandescent light was thrust beneath the water in a fountain. The effect was superb while it lasted, but the water managed to work its way into the globe, and the light was extinguished. This gave the electricians something to think about, and they began immediately to rack their brains for a means of keeping the water away from the source of light. A coating of rubber was finally placed over the joint where the glass globe joins the brass holder, and over this was drawn a rubber bag that fitted tightly over the top of the globe and around the pipe through which the wire passed. This promised to be successful, but a brief experiment showed that the glass was not strong enough to stand the pressure of water, and, after being ex posed to it for a short time, would col lapse. A globe was then made of plate glass that proved able to stand the strain. For some time this was- only used in lighting up fountains by way an orna ment. Then it occurred to Professor Baird of the United States Fish Com mission that if a light could be used under water it would prove of great ad vantage to him in his search for fish- that never., allowed - themselves to be eanghV by any of the old-fashioned methods. He believed that there ex isted at a great depth in the ocean va rious kinds of fish that had never been seen. Every body who has ever lived near the water knows that a favorite method of catching eels is to lure them within spearing distance by a bright light placed in the bow of a boat. Light not only attracts eels but nearly every thing else that lives in the water, and the Professor was sure that if a light could lie made, to live at a great depth in the water the reward would be great. The steamer Albatross of the commis sion was provided with an engine and a dynamo. A liberal supply of heavy glass globes that would hold a light equal to ;the lighting power of one hun dred candl js was placed on board, and equipped with other necessary articles, such as a lot of insulated wire, a large quantity of light, strong rope and a number of heavy weights to serve as sinkers, the steamer started out. The attempt was unsuccessful, for at a depth of 1,000 fathoms the pressure was so great upon the globe that it broke. An other trial was speedily made with heav ier globes, ana they were found able to stand the pressure of any depth to which they could be sunk. But the most wonderful part of this trial trip, which took place something like three years ago, was related to Secretary Frank S. Hastings, of the Edison Electric Light Company, by Prof. Baird. At a point near the Bahamas, accord ing to the Professor, the light was dropped overboard and sunk by means of heavy weights to nearly one thous and fathoms below the surface. On the deck of the vessel stood the crew with nets ready to drop them under the fish that were lured from their homes in the great depth. The light was allowed to remain in the water for some time, and then it was slowly raised. It looked like the reflection of a star in the water at first, and its rays were seen, and in t hem were visible the forms of darting tush The light soon lit up the water for twenty feet around, and a weird assortment of fish that had never been heard of be fore was seen. When near the surface the entrails of some of these fish burst from their mouths. "The Professor ascribed this,"' said Mr. Hastings, "to the inward pres sure. Nature had made them so that they could live in the great deptlis in which they were found, and when this pressure of the deep water was removed there was a counteracting force that killed them. The dead fish were just as useful for the purpose for which the Professor wanted them as live ones, and he gath ered in a great many rare and curious specimens without much trouble. The light was also used to good purpose for discovering the various depths in which different kinds of hsh lived. HEAD NOTES To Decisions of the Supreme Court of Florida. JANUARY TERM, A. D. 1888. State ex rel. Perry Davis, Plaintiff, vs. J. W, Newman, Defendant; Manda mus. Raney, J.: 1. The statutes regulating writs of er ror in criminal cases prescribe the man ner in which such writs mav be allowed. and they cannot be allowed in any other manner. 2. The provisions of such statutes do not impose the payment of costs upon the State. 3. Such statutes do not require a clerk of the Circuit Court to furnish a person convicted of a criminal" charge, a tran script of Jthe record necessary for obtain ing a writ of error without being paid for the same, where such person has not taken the steps required by law of an in solvent to have his costs taxed against the State. Whether the taking of the latter steps make it the duty of the clerk to furnish such transcript at the cost of the State, not decided. 4. The words "final trial" in Section 14 of the Declaration of Rights, provid ing that "no person shall be compelled to pay costs except after conviction on final trial," mean such a trial in the court having original trial jurisdiction of the case, as is the basis for the entry of judgment finally disposing of the action in such court, and does not apply to pro ceedings in an appellate court. 5. Such section of the Declaration of Rights does not prohibit the clerk from requiring ot a person convicted of crim inal charge cash payment for such a transcript. Peremptory writ denied. J. C.
