The President will be here to-day with his wife, and other distinguished guests. . He will hold a reception in the parlors of the Putnam House, to-night, from 9 to 11 o'clock. There is but little time to make preparations for his visit. What is done must be done to-day. The Putnam ITouse, which is to re ceive our honored guest,will be profusely decorated with flowers. All our citizens who cultivate flowers are asked to assist in making the room in which the Presi dent will meet the people a bower of roses. Other flowers will be welcome. . the fragrant orange blossoms and the sweet scented violet and other beauties of the garden. 5 The' streets should be carefully cleaned to-day, especially those in the lower part of the city and all of Lemon street should be put in good condition. Our merchants are earnestly requested f to remove all boxes and other obstrue tions from the streets and sidewalks before nightfall in order that all the streets shall look tidy. , Every one who has a flag should dis play it to-night. Even if the night is dark it will have some effect While no steps have been taken toward an ilia ruination every one should help to make the city bright by making light his house and his store, if he keeps one. This is the first time that Palatka has been visited by an actual President of the United States. She should show in all ways that she is sensible of the honor and that sho is glad to see her distin guished guests, the President and his wife. Freemen honor themselves in hon oring the Chief Magistrate. Their pride is their free institutions is best displayed by their sense of the distinction which surrounds the chief office in the land. , In almost every other country . of the globe men are ruled by those whom they had no voice in placing over them, by those who reign not because of their own merit but by reason of the ao t-ident of birth. In America we are gov erned by the man of our choice, the man whom millions of Americans have cho sen as worthy to hold the high oflice of the executive of the people's will. He who thus represents the power and glory of a free jieople should lie honored by every worthy means wherever he goes . in the land over the government of which he presides. His fair wife, the first lady of the land, has secured the affections of the people as no other woman ever did be- . fore in the history of the country, Thousands flock to railroad Stations where they will pass and attend their public receptions to see the fair young wife whose womanliness has made her universally admired, whose true Ameri can spirit has caused her to be loved by all the people as a representative of the womanhood of America as her husband . is of its manhood. It is in this spirit that the Presidential party will lie received to-night not only by the Palatkans but also by the hun- ' dreds who will flock to the city to-day. Let all our citizens prepare during the day to make it manifest by all outward signs that they do so honor them and in that spirit do welcome them. Clean up the streets, to-day. The President is coming. To EivriflKxly in Palatka If you have flowers or ferns to spare take them to the Putnam House. The President is coming. The Gem City Guards have been awarded the prize offered at Sanford for the best drilled company m Florida and a member of theirfjnpany, J. IT llaughton, took the prize for best indi vidual drill. Our Ixiys deserve the prize- they have worked hard to reach per fection in drill and this will only serve to stimulate them to jierfect themselves. The Scientific American gives a list of cities having a population of half a mil 'ion or more. There are thirty-five such cities in the world and fourteen of them are in China. Asia, including Japan which has four, and Java, has twenty of these cities, leaving but fifteen for the rest of the world. New York, Phila delphia, Brooklyn, Chicago and St. Louis are the American cities on the list. ' SUSPEND JUDGMENT. The death of Charles A. Walter yester day, was one of those unfortunate affairs in which the public should suspend its judgment. Where the reputation of a "professional man is at stake it is only justice to wait for the facts. SucU of the facts as could be learned yesterday are given in our columns, but theliiost iuqiortant jiarts o the story hang upon matters in which medical experts are the best judges. It is due to the public and to Dr. Ames, who is blamed in the case, that an inquest should bo held to-day and a , post mortem examination ordered if it seems necessary or the testimony of medical experts procured to ascertain whether the physician's course of treat ment was one the end of which in any case could result only fatally; whether the condition of the jiatient was such as to make the treatment in his case im projier, or whether death resulted from other causes tlian the morphine admin istered. In this wise there were seven injec tions of morphia given hypodermieaUy a two hours, a total of one grain and one-half in that time. It - is alleged on the one hand that this was the sole cause of death, either singly or in connection with the patient's con dition. On the other hand it is claimed the, amount was not an unprecedented one to give where the riain which was to be relieved jiroved oWinate. This seems to be the very core of the question and the case appears to lie one for judicial examination. interIachen. Quick Appreciation of Property-Want to Sea Mrs. Cleveland - Surveyors. Crrepule iu the. I'alalka jV'eicw. Interlachen, February 21. 1 he splendid rains we are having are making the orange trees grow wonder fully. F. A. Hill, of Boston, a little over a week ago bought a one hundred and sixty acre tract a little south of town and within five days sold eighty acres for enough to pay for the whole tract. Can any place in Florida lieat that? A large number of our citizens will embrace the opportunity given by the low rates on the railroads to go to see the President. Strange to say most of them are more anxious to see Mrs. Cleveland than her husband. Cyrus Cole and wife left for St. Au gustine to-day where they will spend the remainder of the season. The palmetto craze has stuck Inter Iachen and everybody is setting them out. It remains to be seen" how many of them live. II. Friedlander is putting out quite a number of peach trees and grape vines, and will soon be able to have all the ta ble grapes he wishes. It is rejiorted that the surveyors of the Georgia Southern and Florida Railroad are now at work near here, on the west side of Lake Grandon. Our Board of Trade is now in good working order, and is doing effective work in advertising the town through its agent, Thomas D. Hubbard, who is now in St. Augustine. After the ex citement of the President's visit is over, we shall undoubtedly have direct re turns for his work. George L. Barrett, a noted publisher of Springfield, Ohio, is spending the winter at Hotel InterIachen. II. G. WINTER TOURIST TRAVEL Its Advantages to Florida Louisiana Would Like to Share It. - ?Jew Orleans Times-Democrat. The Florida winter season is not yet over, but that State has already re ceived and cared for 60,000 Northern tourists and taken in $6,000,000. This is a handsome bonus; nearly three times the size of the cotton crop of the State, and much more than its fruit crop, ...i.. .u i i. i . j. i . which uiiM jiintriy grown vo oe us most important industry. Nor is the benefit to be estimated merely in dollars and cents. Of the thousands of tourists who come to Florida each winter, a consider able number make their home there and invest tii ir capital, while this travel has blessed the Stiite with fine hotels, mag nificent railroads and increased mail ser vice. A vestibule train now runsthrouch from New York to Jacksonville to ac commodate these winter-visitors; a fast mail enables the loridian to get the New York pajiers ahead of the most western sft ions of the South;and not in one, but in a hundred ways, Florida is benefited by this tourist travel. Cannot the people of the Gulf Coast do something of this kind? It is not de nied that the coast lietween here and Mo bile offers every lvantage that Florida possesses, in addition to its nearness to a great city like New Orleans. The coun try is as pretty, the scenery as pictur esque, the climate as good, the pleasures as numerous. We have not the same hotels, it is true, but Florida started out with slender accommodations in this line, and has built itself up with time. The special advantage that the flowery State possesses over the Gulf Coast is the fact that it is nearer to New York and New Eugland, whose millionaires sun- port the splendid hotels at San Augus tine, Jacksonville and Palatka. On the other hand, our Gulf coast is nearer to the West and ought to get the winter travel from Chicago. St. Louis and all the Western cities. The seventy of the present cold season in that section will doubtless start a considerable move- ment ooutn next winter, ijet the peo ple of the Gulf coast take some steps to get tin's travel here, and to properly care for and receive it. They may not once get all the busiuess now enriching and building up ilorida, but thep can get a good start, and the attractions of the country will soon build it up into the same proportions) ' as rlondas winter tourist travel. The Gulf coast of Mis sissippi and Alabama ought to be to the Western what Florida in winter is to the Eastern States. Florida Compared with Europe. Jacksonville (Flu.) Letter to Philadelphia Times. With a climate in which the warmth of summer is blended with the genial freshness of the spring and the pano ramas oi scenic oeauiies uisciosea in al most every direction, winter in Florida is a luxury. Crowds of visitors from every part of the States are seeking this land of jierpetual sunshine. Already the influx is double what it was this time last year and nearly treble the ag gregate represented in thecorresponding period of any previous season since 1880. Since my arrival I have devoted mvself exclusively to the enjoyments and attractions of "Jackson ville. 1 have utilized the time to" visit all the suburlKin and neighboring towns, and as a consequence my experience ot Florida is to a certain extent varied. I spent some days at the magnificent Ponce de Leon in St. Augustine, and in the immediate suburbs saw some of the most exquisite scenic beauties I have ever witnessed. The limits of a mere cursory letter preclude description of these and I do not feel quite clear that an attempt to describe would not result in failure. The natural beauties of Flor ida must be seen. I have had a good deal of experience- if a couple of tours up the Rhine, among the Alpine table lands in Switzerland and along the pic turesque valleys of Italy count for any thing and with a fair eye for the beau tiful in nature, I must candidly say I Saw very few snes so attractive and so captivating as those I have lingered over in Florida. They are positively exquisite and rich in every feature that goes to form the weird, the beautiful or the picturesque should be seen by every one who can admire nature's handicraft in an American state as well as by the windings of a rum-bedecked Luropean river. Vihj ltou't Thej Drink Uwrl Philadelphia Times. All the drinking water used by the Italian soldiers now concentrated at Massowah. on the Red Sea coast, has to be brought from Naples, and at great expense. Importance of Organization. Birmingham Age, The securing of cheap excursion rates to the South again suggests the impor tance of our people organizing to induce immigration, without depending upon tho desultory efforts of the railroads. ; I Baltimore 1'eleram.
