Tlie tlemouratin ward cnucuses were held in the various wards last Monday night, when delegates to the city convention were chosen, as also were candidates for alderman from encli of the wards. The results for aldermanic nominations were as follows: First ward, W. A. Walton; Second ward, Dr. A. M. Steen; Third ward, Robert James; Fourth ward, S J. Kennedy; Fifth ward, J. H. Hamilton; Seventh ward, H. A. Davis. The Sixth ward is the colored ward and is therefore "hopelessly" republican. The republican caucus will be held next Monday night when it is likely that the piesent member, Albert Browning will be nominated. The only contest recorded was In the second ward where Sheriff R. C. Howell was defeated for alderman by Dr. A. M. 8teeu by a vote of 15 to 7. The city convention meets tonight in the council chamber when the democratic candidate for mayor will be named, which means tiiat the nijxt mayor of Palatka will be se lected. There are two names mentioned in connection with the mayoralty, namely L. O. Stephens and Antonio Usina, though neither of these gen tlemen are seeking the ofllce, and neither would go Into a contest for the honor against the other. It is probable, however, that either would esteem it nn honor, and would ac cept in case the nomination came to them at the hands of the convention tonight. Both are excellent gentle men and either would make an ex cellent executive officer. Enquiry amoiiir the delegates by the News shows that there are but few who have decided preferences either way. Mr. Stephens is the natural choice of his own ward and Mr. Usina seems to be the first choice of his; neither delegation is instructed al though there seems to be au under standing in that way. Whoever ap pears to have a lead to night will gut the nomination, and it is possi ble thnt before the hour of meeting one of these gentlemen may request that his name be not presented. The delegates are: First, ward N. O. Davis, H. W. Kilnatrick, W. M. Boyd, J. N. Black- well and J. N. Walton. Second ward A. Of. Phillips, H. 1'eterman, E. E. Haskell, J. A. Shelley and C. H. Wigg. Third ward J. D. Ringham, James Ray. and Jos. D. Points. Fourth ward -m. i. joxe, i. w. Ramsaur and A. S. Willard. Fifth ward-W. W. C. Wall, P. M. Hngan and J. H. Haughton. Seventh ward J. (J. Hagan, V. P. Childs, H. A. Davis and J. H. Faulk ner. Mrs. Wilson's Reception. The reception given by Mrs. Henry S.Wilson at her beautiful home on Madison street last Jriuay afternoon from 3 to 6 o'clock, and to which nearly 200 invitations were issued. was attended by nearly an uie lauies who received them. The reception was given for the purposes of afford ing the males oi riuar.Ka an oppor tunity to meet Mrs. Y ilson g house guests. The rooms of the Wilson home were tastfullv and beautifully deco rated In dwarl hamooo, yellow Js- lii i ii e, wild plum blossoms and potted uliuits, and the refreshments were served in a small recess decorated in representation of an arbor ami having a full bloom tree in its center. The reception Is said to have been the most brilliant affairs of the kind ever given in Palaika. - Pleasantly Remembered. The editor of the News had a birth day anniversary yesterday and the event was made the occasion of a kindly surprise by those whose com pany he enjoys at taDie at uie rtorei Saratoga. soon alter an were seateu ar Biip- ner. the uioane anu popular iienu- waiter appeared bearing a beautiful frosted cake, made lor tne occasion and on which were six Binall lighted wax 'taners. The cake was garni tn red with violets and around the base was a garland of the Banie nrettv flowers. There was a brief 1 - , ii.. note or couKrHtuiHiidii, iiimiijiiy worded, which also spoke hopefully for manv haon.v returns of the day, 'Then came another surprise from Mrs. W. A. Merryday, who sits at an nnnosite table, in the shape of a nrettv shell napkin ring marked "Honolulu," and to which was at tached a pretty boutonniere of vio lets, and a wish from bright little baby, Harrold Merryday, for many happy returns. The cake was the gift of Mesdames Madella Slnde Frazer of Syracuse, W. C. Snow and L. O. Royce of Brattleboro, Vt., Miss It. JS Urr ot Petersburg, Va.. and Mr. S. Worden of the Seidell Cypress Door company, this city. The occasion was one time hi tl life of the editor when words failed, though he believes the donors knew that his heart contained what the lips refused to adequately express gratitude and' happiness. Officers Elected. The annual meeting of stockhold ers of the Wilson Cypress company of Palatka was held at the ottices of the company on Wednesday, at which time the following officers were elected: President, Chas. A. Rust; vice president and genen 1 manager, A. E. Wilson; treasurer, A. M. Runt; secretary and assistant treasurer, F. H. Wilson; directors, A. E Wilson, Henry 8. Wilson, C. A. Rust, J. O. MacPherson, A. M. Rust. The only change is that of Mr. A. M. Rust who becomes treasurer, and who tte8 on the board of directors in place of Geo. N. Chandler of Cleve- n 1, Mr. Rust who is quite well known in Palatka, will now make this city his home and become per soually identified with the working force of the company. THE BIBLE CONFERENCE At Crescent City is Drawing Many People From &. Distance. Next. Sunday Will Be a Big Day Elab orate Preparations Being Made For Next. Year. Special to Palatka News.

Mr. Hubbard has spoken several times and has been made a great blessing to the conference, especially in the missionary address of Monday night. Mr. Hubbard lias been for several years associated witli Mr. and Mrs. Chafer in their work and their singing in combination is much enjoyed. Mr. Oaehelein will arrive on Satur day and with this combination of teachers and singers the meetings of the closing Sunday will doubtless be the best ever known in this part of the state. During the coming week from Mar. 6th to 12th. there will be meetings once a day 1n the evenings at which Mr. Oaebelein will speak and Mr. Stebbins will conduct the music. The teaching of Mr. (Jaebelein dur ing these extra meetings will be the book of Romans wherein is given the fuudiinental doctrines of the New Life in Christ.

Hyacinths to be Sprayed With out Poison. There was an interesting debate in Congress laiit week over the use of chemical poisons in spraying the water hyacinths in the St. Johns river. The subject was introduced by Congressman Robt. W. Davis of this city, who offered an amendment to the bill making the appropriation which would prevent the use of chemicals that would poison cattle. In support of his amendment Mr. Davis said : "Mr. Chairman, I desire to say. briefly, that the appropriations here tofore made for the distinction of the hyacinths have been used in Un employment of a chemical process applied by means of spraying. "The water hyacinth is an aquatic plant, which floats on the surfi.ee t the water. Tlio roots do not attach themselves to the soil Bt all. All those who have traveled in Florida know Itrat the St. Ji hns Iliver, whei e tli is process has been used, is a broad stream, averaging from a mile to H miles in width, with little or no cur rent, and lor the most part shallow along its edges. These hyacinths flout upon the surface of tiie water and drift, with the winds and the tides. Cattle wade out into the river and feed upon them, some! linen go ing out no far that only their heads are above the water. In th's pro cess which has been used there is some poisonous ingredient, and when tlie cattle feed upon the hya cinths they have died in great num bers. In one place in my own coun ty at least thirty head of cattle be longing to honest farmers were killed at one point I have intro duced a bill in this House to pay one poor man for eighteen head of his cattle that have been killed. The people who are furnishing this tell me that they can get along without this poisonous ingredient. It is a great hardship for the farmers who own cattle along this river to have them destroyed as is being done. The ameiidnit-nt I offer simply pro vides that if the chemical process he continued no poisonous ingredi ent, shall be contained which would be injurious to cattle. I ask that the amendment be adopted." Mr. Davis' speech resulted in tlie passage or an amendment which pro vides "that no process shall be used for such removal which requires tlie deposit of poisonous substances in such waters." By this action tlie appropriation stands, ani a spray must be used that will not kill cattle. If such nun-poisonous spray is not found. Mr. Davis accepted tlie responsibili ty of an unexpended appropriation. Tlie Newj believes that tlie many cattle owners along the river who have lost cattle through this poison ous spray will sustain Mr. Davis, es pecially as there is serious doubt as to whether the poisonous chimical heretofore used has resulted in cur tailing the hyacinth nuisance. Will Paint The Church. The trustees of St. James M. E. church, nta recent, meeting, decided that in addition to recent repairs made on the church building, they would paint the edifice, a work much needed on most of the public buildings in Palatka.

Work 011 Palatka's sewer system has been progressing as rapidly as possi ble with the limited number of men employed on the work, Mr. Guild, the contractor, has found it impossi ble to secure tlie needed labor here. He wants a force of about 120 men, all told, to work in four gangs of about HUcach. At present he has but one gang of 84 men. Tlie labor of Palatka is all now employed, as is also the case in Jack sonville, and unless Mr. Guild can, seture labor in this neighborhood he will be obliged to send away for it. Tlie pay of unskilled labor on this work is from $1 to $1.25 per day. Mr. Guild says he will have all the men he needs in a short time. With tlie labor now employed the work la progressing finely. Proi'kb Theatmbnt of Pneumonia Pneumonia is too dangerous a disease for anyone to attempt to doctor him self, although he may have the proper remedies at lined. A physician should always be called. It should be borne in mind, however, that pneumonia always results from a co:d or from an attack of the grip, and by the proper treatment of these diseases A threatened attack ot pneumonia may bo warded off. There is no qiiestiou whatever about this, as during the thirty years and more that Chamberlain's Cough Kemedy has been used, we bavo vet to learn of a single cose of a colli or attack of the grip hav ing resulted in pneumonia when this remedy was used. It is also used by physieiaus in the treatment of pneumo nia with tho best results. Dr. W. J. Smith, of Sanders, Ala., who is also a druggist, says of it : "I huve been Bell ing Chamberlain's t'ough Remedy and prescribing It in my practice for the past six years. I use it in cases of pneumo nia and have olways gotten the best re sults." Sold by Ackerman & Stewart. ft M S erf m hi id "55 m GAY BROS'. Lent Begins March 8th.
