Two Chares Morphine Poisoning. Sketch of His Life. The many friends of Mr. Charles A. Walter, about 11 o'clock yesterday morn ing, were greatly shocked by learning of his sudden death. . During the day be fore and up to a late hour the previous night Mr. Walter was in his usual health and good spirits and apparently the last man to succumb to the great enemy. Under such circumstances it is but nat ural that his friends should feel his sud den taking off as peculiarly trying, and that Mrs. Walter should merit the deep est sympathy. Mr. Walter, while attending to his duties as barkeeper for Mr. M. Loeb, complained at different times during the day of pain in the side, bit as he had been subject to attacks of neuralgia of ' the heart, and continued at his post, not much atten tion was paid to it either by himself or his friends. After reaching home at about 1 o'clock yesterday morning, the pain became so violent that a little after 1 o'clock Dr. Ames was sent for and at tended to the case, administering reme dies. After Dr. Ames left the house Mr. Walter rapidly became worse, being un conscious and making such violent ex ertions to obtain breath that his friends liecame alarmed and sent for Dr. Cole. Ujion arriving at the house and viewing the patient Dr. Cole pronounced the case to be one of morphine poisoning, and gave antidotes in accordance with that theory. Mr. Walter was unconscious while Dr. Colo was in attendance, but had improved greatly when Dr. Cole left to go to his breakfast Mr. Walter ap pearing to again get worse, at about 8 o'clock Mrs. Walter sent for Dr. Strausz. The patient was then very low, and Dr. Strausas remained with him, used his elec tric cattery, with but little effect, how ever, till a little after 10 o'clock, when Sir. Walter jmssed away. Dr. Strausz pronounced the case to be one of mor phine poisoning. Interviews have been had with Drs. Ames, Cole and Strausz, the physic ians who attended Mr. Walter, in justice to them and to the family and friends, and upon application they gave state ments of their connection with the case Dr. Ames having been the first one called, his statement is here given. PR. AMES" STATEMENT. "At a little after 1 o'clock I was sent for to see Mr. Walter, and found him euflering excruciating pain. I injected morphia hypodermaically and applied mustard with hot cloths and hot irons. I remained with the patient till about 4 o'clock, at which time I left the patient perfectly comfortable and in good condition, and then left instructions that I should bo sent for at any time le tween that and morning if the patient did not do well. My responsibilities ceased when I left the house. When I returned of tuy own accord I found an other physician in attendance, and as I had not been sent for I do not know what transpired during my absence." r In answer to further questions Dr. Ames made the following additional statement: ."I used morphine to meet the most urgent symptom pain considering it, with others, the first thing to be done in a case where the patient waa suffering such excruciating pain as was Mr. Walter. It is one of the first principles of good practice to meet the indications as was done in this case. About half a dozen injections were given during the two and three-quarter hours 1 was present, about one and one-half grains of morphine being uswd in ail. In my own practice I have given grain doses hypodermically. repeated at intervals of half an hour. If given internally I should have used double the" amount. The dose of any drug is the amount which will bring about the desired effect." DR. COLE'S STATEMENT. Upon being called upon Dr. Cole made the following statement: "I was summoned to attend Mr. Walter at about 5:30 a. nr., and reached the house at about 5:45 o'clock. Found the patient suffering from morphine poisouing. . He . was perfectly uncon scious, so weak that he could not move a muscle; bathed in a oold perspiration; stertorous breathing, with frequent in terruptions to respiration, to such a degree as to seem almost impossible to restore it; pupils contracted to the size of about a pin head; lower jaw hanging down; color of face purple; pulse fre quent and flowing; at the time of diffi cult breathing pulse nearly imper ceptible. I learned that Dr. Ames had been called at I o'clock and had adminis tered stx or yeven hypodermic injections of morphine. The poison was absorbed when I was called. I administered atropia and strong coffee as antidotes. During the two and one-half hours 1 re mained there was a perceptible improve ment iu the condition of the patient longer periods uf undisturbed breathing and pupil dilated to double the size as when first called. At 8:13 I considered it safe to leave the patient with the nurse while I went to breakfast. Twenty-five minutes' later I reiurned and found Dr. Strausz had been called to the case. I thereupon withdrew from the case. DR. STRACSZ'S STATEMENT. Upon being called upon Dr. Strausz gave it as his opinion that when he at tended Mr. Walter at about .8 o'clock in the morning the patient was suffering from mori hine poisoning that the symptoms indicated that condition. He attended at the first summons lie re ceived, taking an electric battery with him, which he used. lie remained with the patient until he died a little after 10 o'clock. MR. WALTER'S LIFE BRIEFLY SKETCHED. Charles A. Walter was born in East Boston, and at the time of his death was thirty-three years of age. Mr. Walter came to Florida from Gloucester, Mass., and has resided in the State at different periods for the last thirteen years, living in Jacksonville and at other places. While in Jacksonville, about five years ao, he married a young lady residing in that city. About three years ago he entered the employ of Mr. M. Loeb in Palatka, as barkeeper. While in Mr. Loeb's employ Mr. Walter made many friends in this city and is universally spoken of as being of a genial and hearty disposition, and deservedly popular. The funeral will be held . at the resi dence of the deceased, on First street, between Lemon and Keid streets, at 10 o'clock Friday morning, the Rev. L. H. Wilson, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, officiating. The remains will be interred at West View Cemetery. Mr. Walter was a r-.ember of the St. Johns Yacht Club and of Mechanics' Engine Company. The yacht club and and the Fire Department will attend the funeral. The steamer, drawn by four horses, will be followed by the members of the department. The pall-bearers will be selected, two from each company of the department, the names not having yet Iteen determined upon. CITY LEGISLATURE- Steam Whistle as a Fire Alarm Bate Levied Upon Taxable Property. The adjourned meeting of the city fathers met at the Council Chambers at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. Present: President of the Council D. A. Boyd, A ii'.ertneu Parker and Wilson and Clerk Cark-tn. . The President called the meeting to order and stated that there was business to be attended to that should have been transacted at the regular meeting on the 21st inst, but that was postponed on ac count of having no quorum. Alderman Parker, to whom was re ferred the matter of procuring a steam whistle for a fire alarm, reported that the arrangement was deferred until other arrangements in the way of signal stations could be established by the de partment, as it will be seen that a steam whistle, no matter of what force of sound would be of material ac van tage to tlie Fire Department and the chV izens without telephone or telegraphic connections with various localities throughout the city. After a short debate a rate of 1 per cent, was ordered to le levied upon the taxab'e property of the city. A communication was received from a memlier of the North End Hose, re questing aid for reason of being unable to work, having been injured while on duty. Referred to Fire Committee, with orders to iuvestigate and see what dam ages are to be allowed. Tlie President of the Council was au thorized to renew the city's note for $1,200 and to pay the interest due at the First National Bank. A few bills of minor consequence were ordered paid, among which was one for the burning of Stratton's clothing (this is tlie young man that is said to have died of yellow fever in Palatka last sum mer) and another bill for his burial. After three-quarters of an hour's ses sion the Council adjourned subject to cail until next regular meeting. Invited to Monticello. The Palatka Gun Club has received the following invitation, which it will accept: Monticello, Fla., Feb. 21, 1888. Mr. Martin GrilHn, Secretary Palatka Gun Club: The Monticello Gun Club challenges the Palatka Gun Club to a friendly shooting match to take place on the grounds of the Monticello Gun Club. The Monticello Gun Club acknowledge the kind courtesy and hospitality re ceived from the Palatka Gun Club on their late visit to Palatka, and as a con test has already been shot at Palatka, it seems just that the coming one should take place here. The Monticello Gun Club concedes to the Palatka Gun Club the right to name the number of con testants on each team, the number , of single and double clays to be shot at and the date and time of contest, N. G. A. rules. We would suggest not less than seven contestants for each team (and the more the merrier) and as early a date as pos sible. The railroad officials would no doubt on application from the P. G. C. concede special rates for the occasion. The P. G. C -and the ladies also will be welcomed heartily by the M. G. C Awaiting an early reply I am sin cerely yours "R. F. Farned. Sec and Treas. of M. G. C. Fourth and Last Excursion Sale of Orange Groves, Etc. Saturday, February 25, CoL H. J.

A Gay Time at Fry's Opera House En- joyed by a Large Audience. At Fry's Opera House last evening Mngg's Landing Company did remark ably well. The play, consisting of four acts, was undoubtedly the most comical affair of the season's amusements. A successful attempt to keep from laugh ter, even by tlie crustiest old bachelor present, was entirely out of the ques tion. The troupe advertises to make one laugh, and the constant roar of the au dience last night goes to confirm their claims to a wonderful degree. Miss Carlotta, in presenting and sus taining the role of Muggs, rendered her part in a most bewitching way. This dashing actress is pretty, graceful and fascinating and from first to las'-; was the cynosure of nearly every eye in the Louse. Her singing was very nice and her dancing might readily be said to ex cel anything of a similar nature ever performed upon a Palatka fetage. Mr. Alfred McDonald, as Asa Beech, and Mr. William J. Mason, as Soger Judson were truly amusing and af forded the spectators oceans of fun. Flowers were thrown to Miss Carlotta at the conclusion of her dance in the last act. COMING TO PALATKA. The State Republican Convention to be Held Here April 24. The following dicpatch was received here yesterday afternoon: Jacksonville, Fla., February 22. To Palatka Daily News: Republican State Convention called to meet at Palatka April 24. J. II. Shelley. This will bring a number of delegates and others interested in Republican politics to the city on the day men tioned and will make it a lively day in Palatka. . This city is just the place for Democratic and Republican convention alike and our Democratic citizens should not allow Mr. Shelley to surpass them in public spiritT We do not think they will. Southern Antidote for Malaria. It is generally known that Simmons Liver Regulator is relied upon to secur immunity from all malarial disorders. This is proven by its popularity, and any one who has lived in the South has seen its curative effects and the protection it gives against this weakening and dan gerous malady. It acts more promptly than calomel or quinine, without any of their injurious consequences. An Exact Estimate, Boston Herald. The Tribune remarks that if Mr. Blaine were to die to-morrow in Flor ence, there would be people ready to dis trust the news and to suspect him of du plicity and dexterity in imposing upon tlie American people, by inventing a bo gus account of his own funeral. Un doubtedly. The Tribnne unconsciously sizes up the estimation in whic h Mr Blaine s utterances are generally held by his countrymen. Pineapple Plants for Sale.

H-i WaanSisll 8t II la uP'SLJ SmsJ AtUM, ., O0O8 lbs Lem of the Blizxard. There is, as it seems to tin, one lesson to be drawn from all this horrible experi ence, and that is tlie folly of settling in a wild country, especially on bleak plains, "however cheap tlie land may be, without assured means of providing decent shel ter, fuel and provuaons for more than the immediate future. The representations of land agents and other considerations have induced many to take up western lands without means, on the chance that the success of the first crop would enable them to provide adequately for their families. Tliis is gambling in human life. . - Some ten years ago there was a phe nomenal wheat crop in Kansas, and the next season thousands of immigrants poured in, almost destitute, hoping for an immediate return from wheat. Many burrowed in dugouts on dry land, where the lack of water predestined tliein to failure. Tlie crop of tliat year failed. The immigrants found themselves likely to freeze and starve on the prairies, and they were finally rescued by charitalJe inwrvention. A few weeks since tht re was a scarcity of coal in Kansas and Ne braska, and those who werv conijielled to live from hamlto mouth suffered severel v. The chances of lwd crops and trving weather should be clearly understood by those who meditate settlement npou mil road or government land in tlie north west, and they should be able to provido Bgaitifit contingencies which are usually underestimated by ersous interested ia promoting sales.

A summary shows that the business done at'i'ues day's market and during last week, though ill distributed, has given to some departments a strong appearance, and has tended to sup port rrices. In other departments there has been but little fresh, practical business of im portance. Transactions, however, have lieen as a rule strictly moderate. Innuiry for India has been hardlv up to the avcraire, but a misl eaafe proportion of Inquiry, after much hag gling, led to actual transactions for China. There has been but little demand; the leading makes continue well sold, either through tii iu ness or time required for delivery. Buyers ome times find it difficult to place orders. There is some inquiry for South America and the Levant, largely for special markets. Trans actions on the whole are light. Home trade is quiet. Export yarn departments are inactive. The demand for single und two folds for China and Japan has not ceased, but recent free buying has raised prices lieyond the reach of merchants. Home consumers have done little, even where spinners are willing to ac cept offers declined i-u Friday. Most of the cloth departments have done hardly an aver age business; producers only rarely have had ii ST nod (lav so far, us the amount of busines done is concerned. Lower reeds of 1 ndin shirt ings are very firm. Light goods are also verv firm, owiug generally to rather free buying during the last fortnignt. Heavy shirtings are rather dull.
