WILL NOT RETURN TO STATE SENATE Dr. Edward S. Crill Decline to Again Become a Candidate. Dr. E. S. Crill, who has served in all through nine sessions of the stale legis lature as state senator, has decided not to again become a candidate. Putnam county has been generally for tunate, even above most of its sister counties, in the character of the men who have represented her in the state senate, and this has been conspicuously so in the case of the present member, Dr. Edward S. Crill. He was first elect ed to the senate in 1880, serving at the sessions of 1881 and '83; reelected in 1884 and served in the session of 1885, when he resigned to become state treasurer. Since his retirement from the state treas urership, Dr. Crill has served through six sessions of the legislature 1899, 1901, 1903, 1905, 1907, 1909. This long ser vice together with his business acumen and pre-eminent qualities for leadership in statecraft, have made him a notable figure at Tallahassee. He is regarded as an expert in get'ing at the true inward ness of any measure up for considera tion, and his insight of constitutional questions is clear. - His retirement will be everywhere regarded as a great loss to the state and county, a feeling that will be shared in no small degree by those who have not always been able to agree with him. Possible Legislative Candidates. The political pot is beginning to sim mer and there is considerable speculation as to possible candidates for the legisla ture of 1911, who will be chosen in the democratic primary now but three months away. i'or the state senate there have been no positive announcements, though lion. John P. Wall of Putnam hall has been considering the advisability of entering under pressure of some of his closest friends. Mr; Wall is too well-known to the people of the county to need intro duction here. His long service, in the House of Representatives has made his name known in every household where there is a voter. Hon. S. 1. llilburn of this city has al so been mentioned for the senate. Mr. llilburn was seen by the News, but de clined to make positive announcement, one way or the other, which is evidence that he is seriously considering the mat ter. He has a fine record as a member of the House of Representatives. James M. Chesser of Hollister is said to be contemplating a race for the House. Mr. Chesser .came mighty near making it several years ago, and is well known to the people of the county, from one end to the other. Dr. G. L. Sipprell of Florahome is said to be seriously considering the mat ter of contesting for a seat in the House. Dr. Sipprell is a well-known resident of the western part of the county, is a den tist, and has many friends. h. i. Redding of this city, who was an unsuccessful candid, le for sheriff two years ago, is also spoken of. Mr. Red ding has not yet made up his mind, though some ot his friends have urged him to enter. W. S. Middleton of Pomona, it has been slated, might also become a candi date. He came very near the prize two years ago, but lost nothing in popularity by reason of his failure. Hon. II. A. 13. McKcnzie. editor of the Palatka Times-Herald, and who has served acceptably in the last two legis latures, had not determined up to yester day whether to become a candidate or not. Mr. McKenzie has a large follow ing of friends in the county who would be glad to see him enter the race for a third term. Wm. A. Russell of Crescent City, edi tor of the News, who served in the House of Representatives in the session of 1907, but who declined to become a candidate in the last campaign, will be a candidate for the House in the coming primary, subject to the approval of the democrats. H. A. Merryday of Palatka whose name had been mentioned as a possible candidate, says it is a mistake; he had no such intention was too busy prac ticing law. lhere may be others whose names have been mentioned, but the News has not been able to learn of them. Wants New School Building. Public pride ought to stand powerful ly back of J. N. Blackwcll, president of the county school board, in his efforts to better the school facilities of the city of Palatka. The city needs a new high school school building, and it needs it badly. This need is not of secondary, it is of first importance. The old building was built for the Palatka of other days, and if it measured up to the needs of those days, it is certain that the needs have now out-grown the old building. 1 he people of the new ralalka, wiln its brick paved- streets, its municipal wa ter plant, its sanitary sewer system, its miles of concrete sidewalks, its trallic bridge across the river, its new court house, and various other improvements, have been culpable to a degree in over looking-the importance of a new school building. It s never to late to mend your ways. Ever since Mr. Blackwell's induction in to the office of school superintendent he has been pounding away at this need of a new high school for ralatka. He means to get it, and has gone to work in a practical way to secure it. it is plan is to secure a sub-school dis trict for Palatka. The district as planned by him will include Palatka, Palatka Hights and East Palatka all places pa trons ot .the city high school. Mr. Blackwcll is circulating a petition for an election to form such a district. En courage him in the work by signing and talking for the measure.
