Arlington Changes Hands.
E. L. Wilbur, late of Corbln, Ky., on
Friday of last week purchased alt rights
and title to the Arlington Hotel and has
taken possession.
Mr. Wilbur is an old hotel man and
successful. He is a New Yorker by
birth and for some dozen years was in
the hotel business in Syracuse. For
ten years last past he was a prominent
hotel keeper at Corbin, Ky. His great
est success, he states, has been as a ca
terer to the wants of commercial men.
Mr. Wilbur says that he proposes to
renovate the Arlington and improve it
in every particular where there is need.
Later on he may make more extensive
improvements. ,
1'or the present Mr. and Mrs. Kalb-
field will remain at the hotel and assist
Mr. Wilbur in its management. They
will still make Talatka their home, and
will board at the Arlington. Mr. Kalb-
field bought the property some time
ago, but had paid only a part of the pur
chase price. The sale to Mr. Wilbur
lets him out of the transaction whole.
It will be gratifying to the people of
ralulka to know that Mr. and Mrs. Kalb
field will still make this city their home.
Their management of the Arlington has
been eminently succcsssul. I hey took

Co. Commissioners Announce.
During the week at least two of the
present board of county commissioners
have announced their candidacy for an
other term.
L. C. Stephens, the member from Pa
latka and the hard working chairman of
board, is one of them. Mr. Stephens is
too well known in Palatka to need any
introduction here. He has served on
the board faithfully all through the pre
liminaries leading up to the present pub
lic improvements in the county and is
familiar wilh every detail of the work.
No man can fill an administrative or
legislative office and please everybody,
and Mr. Stephens is no exception. - He
has, however, gone about his work, and
those who know him best believe that
he has honestly striven to serve wilh an
eye single to the advancement of the
county. If he has made mistakes, they
have been of the head, rather than of
the heart. And those things which were
pointed out as mistakes arc gradually
coming to be regarded as- wise moves.
Mr. Stephens is not anxious for the of
fice, but he feels that he can serve the
people to advantage, at least until the
public work now in hand has been com
pleted, hence his candidacy. If there is
to be any opposition to Mr. Stephens
the News has not heard of it.
Morgan Bohannon of Banncrvillc is
the olher announced candidate. Mr.
Bohannon's district is the Fourth. He
has also been a member of the board
during the present public improvements
and served faithfully. He is a modest
man, of few words, but one who when
he takes a position and is convinced he
is right, cannot be swerved therefrom.
Mr. Bohannon is highly regarded ail
over his district as an honest, substantial
citizen" . It is understood that he will
have opposition, but up to the present

Speeches by Judge J. T. Wills,
Ex-Gov. Broward and S.
J. Hilburn.
All Nature Smiled Upon the Occasion
and With a Cloudlets Sky.
In the presence of such a crowd as
has rarely, if ever before, gathered in
this city, Putnam county's great highway
bridge across the St. Johns River was
opened to the public last Tuesday.
It would be hard to estimate the
crowd. Men who have lived here for
40 years say there was never such a vast
crowd in Palatka before. It was a
crowd made up largely of home people.
It was a sober crowd. An orderly
crowd. A crowd calculated to make
one feel proud of the fact that he lived
in Putnam county. People begun ar
riving on Monday afternoon and they
kept coming by train, and boat, and pri
vate conveyance all through the night,
and up to noon on Tuesday,
All through the early hours ot, Tues
day the people flocked to and walked
out on the great bridge. They all liked

Johnny J. Jones' famous Italian band
commenced ils street concert and
Lemon street was thronged. And such
music! Rarely has a band held forth in
Palatka that could approach it in the
mailer of such exquisite harmony of
sweet sounds. The band held the
crowd spell bound with delight.
The Parade Over Bridge.
Promptly at 11 o'clock the parade of
automobiles and carriages formed on
Lemon and Front street and at the
given signal, headed by Sheriff Kenner
ly, Chief of Police Varnes and their
deputies as cut-riders on horse back, the
procession started Following the men

Secretary de Montmollin, of the board
ol trade, Mayor Davis, Col. Hilburn and
other prominent members of the board
with the distinguished guests, members
ot visiting commercial bodies and Ihe
speakers Judge Jas. T. Wills and Ex
Gov. Broward.
There were some 20 or more large
touring cars in the line, followed by
carriages, the whole making a beautiful
procession across the bridge to East
Palatka, where it turned and re-crossed
to the Woman's park on River street.

The Speaking.
President Geo. B. Selden of the Pa
latka board of trade called the crowd to
order and introduced Hon. S. J. Hilburn
who delivered an eloquent address of
welcome, pointing to this first of Put
nam s modern achievements with pride
and predicting even greater things for
tne tuture. Mr. Hilburn s addresa was
the occasion for frequent and enthusi
astic applause as he told of the rapid
settlement of the county and the glories
that awaited the completion of improve
ments now under way. He was followed
by- .
fresident Geo. o. Selden who read
letters of regret from Gov. Gilchrist.
Senator Taliaferro, Col. Rob't W. Davis,
Congressman l'rank Clark, and Hon. W.

Col. H. M. de Montmollin,
Secretary Palatka Board of Trade,
Palatka, F'lorida.
Dear Sir:
I appreciate very much ihe invitation
to be present at the celebration upon the
occasion of the opening of the Putnam
county highway bridge, at Palatka on
February ila. rrcvious invitations will
prevent my accepting the same.
It-affords me pleasure to note Ihe in
terest taken in the construction of roads
and bridges throughout our state.
lours very truly,
Albekt W. Gilchrist,
Washington, D. C. Feb. 16. 1910.
Hon. George B. Selden,
Board of 1 rade,
Palatka. Fla.
My Dear Mr. Selden :
Yours of the 9th instant, sending me
an invitation ot the Jralatka board ol
trade to be present at the celebration of
the opening of the Putnam counly high
way bridge on February 22d, has been
received. I would be more than pleas
ed to attend the celebration, but to be
frank with you, the situation is such thai
I could not get away without Jeopardiz
ing, in my opinion, Ihe interests of the
people of Palatka and the St. Johns river
valley generally.
I he River and Harbor Bill as it passed
the House provides an appropriation of
32,400 for Ihe St. Johns river from Jack
sonville to Lake llaruey. My under
standing of your views is that this long
stretch should be divided as originally
contemplated by the engineers into two
projects Jacksonville lo Palalka in the
one and Palalka to Lake Harney in the
other. The amount to me seems a very
small sum for the long stretch of river
from Jacksonville to Lake Harney and
It is my purpose to endeavor to get the
projects separated, to allow the $32,400
to remain for one if possible and to get
an equivalent sum for the olher. If I
should leave at this time with the River
and Harbor Bill pending in the commit
tee I am afraid that our chances for this
improvement would be jeopardized, and
I am writing in the hope that you will
explain my absence in such manner that
the good people of Palatka will not be
lieve that I am unappreciative of their
hospitality or would not like very much
to be with them. I hope you are well
and am wilh best wishes.
Sincerely yours,
Jas. P. Tai.iafekbo.

In Presence of Great Throng of

I cannot tell you how much I regret
ihe fact that It will be impossible for me
to be with you on that happy occasion,
but engagements in court make it im
possible. There are no people on earth
who are nearer to my heart than the
people of Palatka and Putnam county,
and 1 rejoice with you on the commer
cial prospects and advantages which the
building of this bridge furnishes, and al
though I cannot be with you in person,
you may be sure that 1 am with you in
spirit. Sincerely your friend,

Dear Sir:
The invitation of the Palatka Board
of Trade, transmitted through you.

dress on the occasion of the opening of
the Putnam county highway bridge at
falalka, Fla., on the 22d of February,
1910, received. 1 he State Bar Associa
tion convenes at Tampa on that day, and
I have promised to be present, being
one ol its olliccrs.
I regret exceedingly my inability to be
present. With best wishes for the wel
fare, prosperity and upbuilding of your
city and 1'ulnam counly. 1 remain,
Very truly yours,
Wm. A. MacWilliams.
After the reading of the above letters
of regret, President Selden gracefully
introduced Hon. James T. Wills of
Starke, Circuit Judge of this circuit. The
News regrets it has not Ihe space to re
produce the address of this eloquent and
learned judge (as well as those of the
other speakers), but those who heard
Judge Wills will not soon forget his
splendid speech.
1 hen came adjournment for the bar
becue. Spread upon long tables cover
ing more ihrn 1,200 feet in length were
pieces of the barbecued meat, bread and
coffee. Seven large beeves, six sheep
and six great hogs were barbecued; cof
fee was made in great kettles and bar
rels upon barrels of it was served, while
the bread was in a quantity to "take the
whole bakery." The jam about the
tables was tremendous, and ihe lack of
organized service may have prevented
some from being properly served, but on
the whole it was pretty successful for
a go-as-you-please barbecue.
After the lunch kxGov. Broward was
introduced, and spoke to the multitude.
His address was largely reminiscent.
The ex-governor is a Floridian. He has
sailed the St. Johns and its tributary wa
ters from the time he was a kid in jump
ers and he knows the state and its peo
ple as do few other men. He has seen
it grow and in his later years of official
life he has had a big hand in its develop
ment. He was therefore enabled to talk
interestingly of Putnam counly to Put
nam county people and he did. Many
thought that Ihe ex-governor, being a
candidate for the U. S. scnalorship.
would talk politics, but he didn't. He
talked development and made many-
votes by it. 1 n fact all through the day
it was easy to see that there was a strong
Broward sentiment all through ihe
crowd so strong that it would be a safe
bet that he will be high man in Putnam
county in the contest in May.
Afler the speech ol Gov. Broward the
crowd scattered. Some went lo Johnnie
Jones' show. They heard the band; saw
the balloon ascension, and many started
for their homes.
The Palalka board of trade, which
planned the celebration and which has
taken an active leadership in all the re
cent improvements for Ihe city and
county, has cause for congratulation
over Ihe success of the event, and the
undoubted public approval of its leader
The day was bright and warm. Il
couldn't have been better had it been
made to order.
At night those of the crowd who re
mained in the city had choice of John
nie Jones' big trained animal show and
vaudeville, the Wonderland Moving
Picture Theater, and the Lyman Twins
at ihe Howell. All these places were
The hotels couldn't accommodate the
crowd on Monday.or Tuesday night, but
it was warm and many passed it in chairs
under shelter, while others walked the
One of the pretty sights in the parade
was Ihe five-passenger Buick runabout
machine of Miss Whiteside which was
along toward the end of the line in the
parade. This auto was profusely deco
rated with white chrysanthemums so
that the body of the car was invisible.
As guesls of Miss Whiteside were Mes
dames Gay, Holmes and Miss Rox
borough, the president, vice president
and secretary respectively of Ihe Palatka
oman s Club. 1 he ladies were gown
ed in white and each wore white chrys
anthemums. This car attracted univer
sal attention and favorable comment.
The Woman's Club, itself i most potent
influence for progress, had not been of
ficially recognized in the celebration.
But wilh artistically decorated car and
fair occupants official recognition was
unnecessary in the face of such general
public applause.
Ihe hotels and restaurants were
crowded to the doors all during the day.
At kuppcrbusch'g restaurant the street
doors bad to be closed and locked on
two or three occasions lo prevent the
crowd overrunning the place. Mr. Kup
perbusch stales that he served over ViM'

not an arrest was made during Ihe day,
nor was there a single accident lo mar

Claude L'Engle, Candidate.
Claude L'Engle of Tallahassee, who
sprang into stale prominence as editor of
The Sun, and now a picturesque and un
certain quantity in the race for the
United Slates senate, spent Tuesday in
this city mingling wilh Ihe crowds that
filled the streets, and talked personally
to many voters.
Mr. L Lngle says that his campaign is
purposely divided into two parts the
gasoline, and the gas campaign. The
gasoline campaign which he is now
making is so named because he is tour
ing the state in an automobile. Up to
the present time he says he has person
ally interviewed some 25,000 people.
Ihe gas campaign, yet to come, will
be his public speaking tour, and when
he will address his "Fellow Country

He expects to arrive in Palatka shorth
and make a tour of the counly in his
automobile, reserving his "gas" for a
later visit. lie made many new ac
quaintances and renewed many old
ones on Tuesday, and also made some
voles. He will make more.
Mr. L'Engle was pleased wilh the
celebration and as he slood viewing the
bridge, he remarked to some gentlemc:
il s a great achievement on Ihe part of
Putnam counly and one lhat will pay for
itself in a year's lime. It means that
other towns on Ihe river will follow
suit. There'll be more of them in the
next five years."
Hon. John P. Wall Indisposed.
Word has been received in this city
(hat Hon. John P. Wall, candidate for
the stale senate, suffered a partial,
though mild, stroke ot paralysis at his
home in Putnam Hall early in the week.
His absence at Ihe functions of 1 uesday
was noted and commented on at the
time, but (he report of his illness ac
counts for it.
There will be general regret over the
county when the people learn of Mr.
