PALATKA. 1 1AIHIUA,
PALATKA. FLA.. FEB. 24, 1888.
Senator Ingalta is quoted as Baying
that In Kane a "the Prohibitioniats Lave
all,the law they want and the whiskey
drinkers have all the whiskey they
:, want." Senator Ingalls in himself a
Prohibitionist.
We were unable to give place to-day to
u communication from one of the indig
nant visitors of Palatka who came to
see the President. So far as is kno-n in
Palatka the Florida Southern is not to
blame, but. the indignation to which
rent is given in the communication was
expressed by many. It is unfortunate
but we have no reason to believe that
the Florida Southern people knew any
thing more of the real state of the case
than the people of Palatka did. If they
did, no censure can be too strong for
them. We shall give the communica
tion apace to-morrow.
DISAPPOINTMENT.
Palatka'g disappointment is deep. The
- announcement that the President would
stop here long enough to hold a popular
levee at the Putnam House liad stirred
tip everybody and the city presented a
holiday appearance. A great deal of
preparation was made for an illumina
tion in the evening and considerable ef
fort made to fitly receive the guest.
It was learned early in the morning
that the President would not stop in Pa
latka, not even for an hour. A commit
tee was sent to St. Augustine to endeav-
or to persuade Mr. Cleveland to change
his wind and give Palatka an hour.
This he positively declined to do. The
President's character in that respect is
well known. Call it firmness or obsti
nacy, he is certainly inflexible when his
mind is made ux.
The fact is Mr. Cleveland's mind was
made up before he left Washington that
he would visit the Ponce de Leon as the
guest of Mr. Flagler and in a private
capacity. This should have been made
known in an unmistakable way before
lie arrived in the State.
Evidently our committee sent to Jack-
sonvi le to see the President bad blun
dered and the people are rightfully
vuriuus to know whose blunder it was.
Mr. Griffin wired the information, he
says he received it from Mr. Conant, an
other member of the committee. From
whom the well Known railroad manager
rd-eived this piece ef erroneous informa
tion could not be learned last night when
a representative of this puer tril to
find him but doubtless he can give a
tsatisfaeUrty explanation.
No one was to blame for thus mislead
ing the people but the committee and
the committee says it was honestly mis
taken. They had no reason for deceit,
were not men who would wantonly de
ceive and deplore the result as deeply as
anybody. '
This we say as extlanatiou to the hun
dreds of visitors from other places who
expressed their indignation with great
warmth last night.
NATIONAL JACZSONIAN LEAGUE
An organization for political instruc
tion, intended to include especially
young Democrats or those who wish to
learn what the principles are upon
which the Democratic party is based has
been proposed and the first "subordi
nate council" has been or is about to be
formed at Newark, IS. J. It is designed to
1ms a national non-secret society with Na
tional, State and subordinate councils.
the aim being unity of action and con
stant interchange of views and supply
. ing the lack of full information as to
many of the vital topics now agitating
tha neonle.
The name adopted is "The National
Jacksonian Legion," the principles gov-
erning the Legion are slated to be "Hope
and abiding faith in the great principles
of Democracy as set forth by Thomas
Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van
Buren, tJrover Cleveland and other
statesmen of like character
Its objects are formally 'stilted to be
the introduction into political organiza
tions of new, interesting and novel pr
ceedures thereby bringing within such
organizations those whose minds politi
cally are not matured; to establish a
school for the education of our young
men in the true principles of Democracy;
to establish a system of debates and lec
tures having a bearing upon all great
principles of political economy; to arouse
th people to the great good to lie ac
complished for our whole nation by
proper political and social intercourse.
"It is not,' the declaration of princi
ples says, "the object of this Legion to
further political aspirations of any man
or liody of men except so far as giving
an individual support to the Stale and
National tickets of the Democratic
party."
Education in party principle is badly
needed in a day when we see some
Democrats defending Protection and
others advocating sumptuary laws.
The workings of this political educa
tional society will le watched with
interest if it proves that it has any
vitality in it.

THE PENDULUM BIRD.
Tha Wyoming Clock Bird Ticking Off the Time at
Sunrise, Noon and Sunset.
New Orleans Times-Democrat,
Lajjdee, W. T., February 10.
It has been the writer's recent privi
lege to closely observe the habits of that
rare and curious Fpecimen of feathered
tribes, known as the Wyoming clock or
pendulum bird, the opportunity of such
observation occurring on a hunting ex
padition with Jack Gaylor. The old
hunter led us straight into the haunts of
the pendulum bird (what Wyoming
Mountain haunts does. Hunter Jack not
know, by the way?) and we observed at
our leisure.
The habitat of this bird appears to be
exclusively confined to the rather nar
row radius described by the spurs and
ridges which shoot oil from the main
Wind Mountain rantre to cluster about
the sources ot the Papoagir, as diligent
inquiry on the part ot your correspond
ent has failed to locate it elsewhere.
The Wyoming pendulum bird is what
its name indicates a natural time
keeper, measuring otf an hour at three
different jieriods of the day, with the
regular tick, tick, tick of the clock or
watch, and sway of the pendulum.
This feathered freak of nature, in iron
eral apjwarance and characteristics, ap
pears to he a combination of quail and
sniie. It is considerably larger than the
quail of our noyliood days, wno so mu
sically annouueed himself as "Bob
White, and indeed, in size, the pendu
lum bird nearly approaches the pheas
ant. In color it is coal black, with un
der feathers of such soft and thick tex
ture as to almost deserve the name o!
down, while its sturdy legs are feath
ered to the toes. In body it is plump
ana rouna as eminently becomes a quai
ana is rurnisiiea with a long and pointei
bill which just as eminently liecomes a
snipe. The bird is active of foot (as
well as of wing), and it is singular and
laughable to see it moving about on the
ground with its short quad-like neck
sporting the incongruous attachment of
the long, snipe-like bill
To this long, snipe-like bill, however,
the pendulum bird of the W ind Moun
tains owes both name and fame. It is
the most important, as it is the most pe
culiar portion of the bird's anatomy. To
that long bill is attached the natural
mechanism which enables the pendulum
bird to measure olf the hours and
proudly pose as the timekeeper of the
Wind Mountains. This bill is some four
inches in length. On the under and
near the point of the lower mandible
rests a hard, ball-shaped substance
about an inch in circumference, and
in this ball is found the pendu
lum of the feathered keeper of
time. Three times during each day does
the curious metaphorphosis from a bird
to a clock take place, vix: at sunrise, at
noon and at sundown. As the sun rises,
as he attains his meridian, and as he
sinks to his fall, the licndulum bird re
spectively seeKs some high wrch, usu
ally the loftiest limb of a tree, prepara
tory to business. The hard ball on the
underside of the bill sliiw ouietlv and
easily from its place and hangs sus
pended bv a stout, cord-like ligament;
then sways backward and forward the
pendulum m regular rhythmical move
ment, and on the mountain air comes
the tick! tick! tick! bv which the hour
is exactly and plainly marked off.
Though close investigation has betn
made it has not yet been discovered
whether the "tick" accompanying the
pendulum belongs to the pendulum
movement or whether it is a vocal effort
of the birth itself. It is probably the
latter . as the sounds is very loud and
distinct (as clock-ticking eoes). so much
so, indeed, that when a dozen or more of
these birds are marking time at once the
listener has little difficulty m imaerinine
himself in a vast and acscravated watch
and clocK emporium.
White keeping time the pendulum
Dira is deaf and blind to all else, attend
ing strictly (as every well regulated pen
dulum should) to the business on hand.
Apparently the bird cannot, or will not,
break the enthrallment of its own rhyth
mical if slightly monotonous melody.
The spell the bird thus lays upon it
self is very often a fatal one as while
wrapt in the discharge of its singular
duties the poor timekeeper is readily ap
proached and slain. In almost every
instancejwhere the pendulum bird falls
a victim to the hunter it "ticks its own
death knell, as, generally speaking, this
quail-snipe is possessed or a most alert
and robust judgment in regard to the
danger limit. Therefore (as the flesh of
the bird is highly esteemed) as soon as
the well known tick, tick, resounds
through the mountain ferns the hunter
generally abandons all other game pur
suit until he has satisfied his lonning for
a delicious quail-snipe fry.
The pendulum bird breeds in all re
spects like a quail, though the eye can
discern no difference in the appearance
of the male and female birds. It nests
on high ground, and makes a perfect
glutton of itfelf in devouring the many
and delicious vatirties of Wind Moun
tain berries. On the other hand, it also
largely affects marshy spots as feeding
grounds, and uses its long bill with
snipe-like agility and persuasion in cap
turing and manipuiatuig the unlucky
worm and the baa ly victimized water
spider. : ;
Lovers of the curious approaching the
bizarre can thoroughly en joy themselves
bv a visit to the Wind Monnrain haimij
of Wyoming's pendulum bird. G. R. C.
