Notwithstanding the hard times and the huge deficit of the Uuiled States treasury our new president will get a salary of 75,000 per year, or an increase of $23,000 over his predecessors. Maybe the genial Bill Taft will earn the increase. Dr. Crura, the negro collector of the port of Charleston, is to be commended for his voluntary withdrawal from the race for re-appointment. He lias evi dently concluded that he is persona non grata to the people of Charleston and his desire to save embarrassment to the new presieent is very commendable. Farmer, of the Bronson Times Democrat, thinks that "the ex- pres9 companies should not be regulated but abolished. It is a wheel witbin a wheel to doub le tax the people. The railroads transport the matter and we pay the express company to deliver it, The railroad could delive it just as well aDd at a material saving to tne people. It is a needed reform."

Prompt action was taken by the citizens of Pensacola and Senator Talliafero and Senator Fletcher are working witb the new administration in an effort ' to have the ofder rescinded and the navy yard again opened. "We'certaiuly hope their efforts will be crowned witb success, Editor Griffis of ' the White Springs Henld seems to have orflitted from his list of "Great Floridians" many of the editors of the State and because oi his deflection in this resnect the boys of the press are "throwing if'into'him at a great rate. In a'l probability we owe him one ourselt, but not having been fav ored with, a copy of ' bis paper containing his list we .don't want to punch him without being advised. We wish to commend oui board of county commissioners for their action in supplying tlje needed fence wherewith to en close our city parlf. At the last meeting of the board the sherifl was instructed to purchase a feuce . in accordance with the desires of the ladies of theU. D (j. ana deliver same upon me ground. When the fence arrives the town authorities will see to its erection aud by the co-op eration of the two official bodies the patriotic ladies will have gratified their wish to enclose the park in which will be erect ed the handsome Confederate monument.

The Starke Telegraph says that thirty liens were filed for record in one week in the clerk's office, averaging $10 each, triven by citizens of Bradford county to a lightning rod agent. Those liens are blanket affairs which will enable the company to sell ill a man's possessions. One man who was too poor to put a chimney to his house had it cov ered with lightning rods. Levy county farmers are warned to look out for the lightning rod agent. He's a smooth article. Bronson Times-Deoiocrat.
