Public attention will be dl yided between the dcings of the legislature now in session at Tallahassee and the baseball results in the South Atlantic league which begins its annual schedule to-day, Jacksonville and Savannah will cross bats on the Jacksonville diamond to-day and we opine that the game will attract as much attention ana excite as much interest us the doings of the legislature. In bis message Governor Gil Christ, calls attention to the constitutional provision which prevents the governor of this State seeking re election, and suggests that the provision be extended so that a governor may not aspire to the office of United States Senator or any other position during bis term of ffice as governor. A solendid suggestion and. by the way, pretty lair indication that our present governor doe not de sire to ne turtner advanced in the political game as did some of his predecessors To-day in the Senate the pro posed prohibition bill Introduc ed by Senator Beard is made a special order for eleven o'clock and at that hour it will be tak en up and disposed.of. Senator Beard Is of the opinion that prohibition, State-wide, may be brought about by legislative enactment without resorting to a change ot the constitution. This opinion is not shared y the leaders Df the prohibition forces and they will oppose bis bill vigorously. It is pretty generally conceded that the bill will be defsated without any trouble. The Morning News is the ti tle of a bright and spicy little six-column paper which made its appearance in Tallahassee last Wednesday morning. It is published by the Capital Pub lishing Co. and T. J. Appleyard is editor la chief. It will appear regularly every morning during the legis'ative session and prob ably thereafter, and . as it is filled with a complete record of the daily doings of the legis lature it should meet a cordial support all over the State If you want to keep posted on what your legislators are doing you cannot do better than sub scribe for the Morning News. It is very apparent that the members of the present legisla ture will do what they can for economy. .15vtryone seems im pressed with the fact that past legislatures and administrations bave been extravagant almost to the point of recklessness and retrenchment is demanded all along the line. It is early to forecast, we know, but never theless, we venture the opinion that this session of the legist ture will be marked by rigid economy and that the invnense appropriations of State money which characterized other legis latures will be lacking when the record of the present ses.' slon is made up. ' A FALSE REPORT DLN1ED- Owing to the cbauge ot sea sons, the unusually dry winter, the unseasonable weather (hot days and chilly nights) and to obscure atiposphenc conditions, all of which influences have prevailed throughout the south em states, there has been great deal of malarial fever and an almost universal epidera ic of rheumatic affections and of digestive disturbance among children. However Madison has not had more than its share and, save four cases of typho'd there has been no epidemic ol fever. Our reporter has' inter viewed Madison's four physi ciansand they assure us that these four possible cases, all remotely separated from each other, cover all the typhoid that our county has had. Of the four, two have died, the other two are happily convalescent ut several aeatns in tne com munity in the last few months, some have been little children xho died of digestive and bowel troubles, and at least two have been chronic troubles of long standing. Excepting consider able sickness among the negros and among the Normal pupils who, in many instances, attri bute their illness to the radica' change ot climate, there is very lr.tie serious sickness in our town and county now. We regret that any sensa'.io al reports should have been sent out from this town. The physi cians, one ana an, give us per mission to say tor them that though as we stated, there has been considerable sickness of a type not confined to our town or county there has absolutely been no typhoid In the couniy save the cases cited. Marshal Dale, as is his annual custom, cleaned out the stand pipe some weeks ago and found absolute ly nothine menacing to the pub' lie health. Except iron rust and sediment there was nothing found in the water, and he states that It was found in a better condition than ever before We would appreciate it if all who wish to discount every thing of a sensational or hysterical na ture, would accept and make public this statement wbich is not our personal one but is bacHed by tne word ot all our physicians. That was a righteous resolu tion adopted in the House ot Representatives last Friday whereby members of that body will not be permitted to appoint to clerkships of any sort any member of their family or any kinsman even as remote as a third cousin. The adoption of the resolution had the effect of thinning out Tallahassee board ing houses many kin folks of the members seeing their finish took the first train ont tor their homes. At past sessions of the legislature the daughters, sons, nephews, nieces and cousins of members bave had pie dealt out to them in liberal chunks. But that time is no ir past and oth ers will have a chance at the 'pie counter."
