At aJJ Reliable, stores the discrinr i ndting mother askf forMrcJajieftopkin Bqy-Proof Clothes Refuse to Sell Water Plant. The News is informed that the Pa latka Water WorkB company, which has its principal office in Boston, has refused the recent otter of the Palat ka Bond Trustees of $55,000 for its local plant. This means that Palatka is to have a new and up-to-date municipal plant of its own construction. The amount olfered by the Bond Trustees is considered very liberal and there is some disatiNluction on tile ground that It was altogether loo liberal, when the cost of an en tirely new plant, with an even purer source of supply is taken into con sideration. Then, to, it is known that the Boston company has several miles of very small mains that would soon need to bo replaced. It is certain that the Bond Trus tees will not increase the amount of their original offer, and this, as stated by a member of the board, probably means that the Bond Trus tees will without unnecessary delay begin the construction of an entirely new and up-to-date plant, which can be done inside the appropriation for that purpose.

The First Presbyterian church of this city will celebrate the semi-centennial of its organization in an ap propriate manner on (Sunday, the 12th inst. At eight o'clock on Thurs day night following, Nov. 10th, will occur the semi-centennial reception to the Synod of Florida and friends. The exercises for Sunday the 12th will consist of addresses by the pas tor, Rev. L. R. Lynn, and former pastor Rev. T. P. Hay, of Gaines ville. Mr. Lynn's address will be historical and Dr. Hay's will be "On Presbyterianism. At 3:30 in the af ternoon will occur the sacrament of the Lord's Supper, and at 7:30 p. m., Rev. W. H. Dodge, D. D., of Rain bridge. Ga. will deliver an address en "John Knox." The first Presbyterian church of Palatka was organized in 1855 by Rev. Joseph M. Quarterman of Mt. Vernon. Ga.. who acted as pastor for some years The first place of wor ship was a little old log house built by tne government; ior a puwuei mairazine during the Seminole In dian War. This building stood a lit tle to the southeast of the present church and nearer the river, presu mably about where Vertrees Uo's. office now Btands. The Greater church had its founda tion in sentiment. Among the ear lier northern tourists to visit Palatka in search of health were Mr. and Mrs. Robert L. Kennedy ot New York. They were devout Presbyte rians and wealthy. The last com munion service Mr. and Mrs. Ken nedy ever attended together was in the little loir church. Mrs. Kennedy died, and as a memorial to his wife Mr. Kennedy built aoricK cnurcn on the nresent site in 1880 at a cost of $10,000, which he also endowed for $2,000. This church was destroyed in tne couiiagiaiiun wuiuu owcyu mo business portion of the city in 1884. Mr lionnedv built, the Dresent church ediflde later on, mostly with money received from insurance on the destroyed building. Mr. Kennedy cneu in oeptemur, 1HH7. on hoard a steamer bound from Southampton, England, to New York, in wnicn latter cuy ne wn buried. He was a modest man and never would permit a tablet to his memory or that of his wife to have a place in the church; but the build ing is itself a monument to their memory. The Annual Synod of the Presby terian church in Florida will con vene in the church on Tuesday the 14th inst. The moderator . will bi Rev. B. L. Baker, D.

' ' Diplomatic A British nobleman who was sued for breach of promise declared to the Jury that it was impossible for him to contradict a lady and that therefore he would not deny that he had made the promise, but be insisted that the lady had. exaggerated the value of hl affections and that that value was a fair question for a Jury. The lady re covered 1 per cent or so of her original claim, and the mulcted nobleman de clared that the cross examination of her by his counsel wai amply worth the money. . Hebb W. Edwards Injured. Herb W. Edwards of Dee Moines, Iowa, sot a fall on an Icy walk last win ter, spraining his wrist and bruising his knees. "The next aay, ne says, "toey were so core and stiff I wag afraid I would have to stay In be , but I rubb'Hl them well wltb Chamberlain's Pain Balm and after a few applications all soreness bad disappeared.

You can't help it and probably don't want to. But the live men of the state whose business takes them into hotel lobbies and other places where men congregate will and do spend their idle moments in discus sing available candidates for the governorship and other political matters. These men are the kind who make sentiment. They, too, usually come nearest to voicing cur rent opinion. I At the Saratoga hotel the other evening were a dozen commercial men. The subject came up. Then John McRea, the big, vigorous and alwayB interesting and popular rep resentative of the Covington compa ny spoke: "I am for George W. Wilson of the Times-Union. I have known him for years. Most of the people know him. He is a good, clean, capable man and would give the state a good administration with out any frills. Don't know whether ne coma be nominated or not, out well, primaries are peculiar." There were one or twoassents to the proposition, then another man a Jacksonville man whose name we did not learn spoke up: 'The best man l know lor tne office of Governor of Florida lives right here in Palatka. I mean Dr. E. S. Crill. There is the man to give us an intelligent business adminis tration with no nonsence and no graft attachment. He is the best posted man regarding state nnances In Florida. He knows the state from A to Izzard. He is absolutely honest. Good many cheap guys jumped on him last spring when he introduced that Key west extension bill in the senate. Said he was a railroad man. He was, but not in the sense they meant. Now those uy singa different song. They see that this Key West railway exten sion is going to prove the biggest thing that ever happened to florida. It's going to shove all Cuban travel and f i eight through Florida, and it's going to make of the Island City the one important, because nearest and most direct, point of embarkation for the Panama canal. That was Sena tor CrilVs work, and not onlv that but he has saved the state of Florida a heap by iuterposiug his head lull of conservative brains to prevent ill advised legislation. I am for Crill and I believe he could be nominated." Several of those present also spoke in approval of Dr. Crill. Then Mr. McRac said : Dr. Crill is undoubt edly one of the purest men in poli tics in this or any other state. 1 don't know as he would run but I will say that if he wan governor of Flori da there would be an end to graft and the affairs of state would be conducted in a dignified manner something that has not always been during these latter years." Traveling men not only sell goods, but they build political sentiment. and their utterences are generally of the most sensible sort. , Fine Lettuce Prospects. r James H. Fry of this city has a big crop of lettuce and celery on his trucK tann on the outskirts of the city. The lettuce should be ready for shipment in two weeks and if the price holds Mr. Fry will realize a big profit. He has 52,000 head of lettuce and a lot of celery. W. A. Walton also has a big acre age in celery and lettuce but his was planted later. The experiment farm also has big truck crops coming on. It is the geie 'al opinion among truckers that this is going to be a good year in the business and those who have crops will make money. The acreage here, however, is not so large as in former years. To Occupy New Quarters. O. V. Willson, local agent of the G. S. &. F. R'y is authority for the statement that the company will move iuto its new down towu river front depot this week aud that trains will be entering and departing from the new station in a day or two. Superintendent Grady is expected here today or tomorrow to inaugu rate the new service. The station building has been thoroughly clean ed ana maae ready ior occupancy aud telegraph wires have been installed. The depot will be a great conve nience to all entering or leaving the city by that road and will give au air of push to tne whole city. - Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy This Is the most successful medicine in the world for bowel complaints, and is the only reme dy that will cure rnronio diarrhoea.

Their new home is one of thelnost valuable and attractive residence properties in the city. Mr. Keating secured the property for $3,500, and this is considered a big bargain, the house itself having cost very much more money to build. Fortnightly Club Meeting.

Aftor the routine business was completed, a letter from Mrs. Caro line is. zeegler Huber, president ot the "Club of Current F.vents" of Tampa, Fla., was read in which she urgently invited the members of the W.

A. W. Strange of this city filed a petitio'I in voluntary bankruptcy iu the United States court at Jackson ville last Monday. Mr. Strange was represented by his attorney, Hon. S. J. Hilburn of this city. After a hearintr of the case the court de clared Mr. Strange a bankrupt. The assets are reported at anout $10,000 and the liabilities at $11,000. Of the assets the home and grove n.-onertv of Mr. Strange at Knights station, Hillsborough county, is val ued at $7,000 and the stock or goods in this city is valued at $3,000. The grove property arid $1,000 of personal property are claimed as exempt un der the constitution of the state. Of his liabilities $3,400 are secured by a mortgage on the grove. Of course the exemption will not reach these secured claims. Mr. Strange opened business here a year ago by securing the remnants of the old S. E. Bond Co's slock. He put in a line of choice dry goods and men's shoes and furnishings and for a time did a flourishing busi ness. Then owing to illness in his family and other trouble the stock was allowed to go down. For sever al months the stock has consisted of odds and ends and the store was kept open at a loss.
