The Woman's Club.
The bi-monthly meeting of (he Pa
latka Woman's Club was held last Fri
day afternoon, Feb. 25th, at 3 o'clock,
with mafiy guests present. After the
roll call and reading of the minute, the
president requested Mi&s Rowley, the
second Vice president, to proceed with
the musical program, as follows:
Piano Duet, Tas de Ctarge," Misses
Leeks and Mills.
Vocal Solo, "In Love's Eternity,"
Mrs. Merriam.
Piano Solo, "Lous Bois," Miss Rosa
lia Metcalf.
Vocal Solo, "Ah! Che la Morte,"
Miss Helene Roxburgh.
Piano Solo, "Caprice,' Miss Irene
Violin Solo, "Swan," Miss Spain.
Solo, "Italian Song," Miss Webster.
Piano Solo, Miss Mabel Bassett.
Miss Rowley deserves great praise for
so ably conducting her first club musi
cale; the unusually good music was
much appreciated, and we hope to hear
Miss Webster sing again.
At the conclusion of the musicale the
president called the club to order and a
motion prevailed that Miss Harris com
mence her course of lectures on Friday,
March 11 th. The club decided to
charge 10 cents per lecture.
A committee was appointed to take
charge of the A. C. L. lots which had
been turned over to the club.
The club also voted thanks to Messrs.
Wilson and Tilghman for donation of
pavillion in the Woman's Club park.
A committee was appointed to arrange
for a "Sample Sale."
The old question of the untidy con
dition of Palatka streets was discussed.
Many members stated grievances con
cerning the non-removal of trash from
receptacles. The women of Palatka do
not create imaginary wants, therefore
require something more tangible than
imaginary satisfaction.
The progress of Palatka in the past
few years should inspire every one to
unite in a great effort to make our city a
model one in every respect. We are
confident that the city council will not
take.amiss our suggesting the advisabili
ty of reinforcingthe sewerage system.
A motion prevailed that a letter regard
ing this matter be sent to the mayor.

Some New Candidates.
Mr. G. F. Bullard of McMeekiti has his
announcement in this week's News as a
candidate for renominalion lo the office
of county tax assessor. This Is a job
with which Mr. Bullard Is perfectly fa
miliar, his familiarity with the work hav
ing been gained by long experience. It
is doubtful if any other county has a
more perfectly kept set of tax books. Go
through them for any year of Mr. Bol
lard's incumbency and you will not find
a flaw, nor an ink splotch. He Is an ex
pert book-keeper as well as assessor, and
is popular with all classes of citizens.
Mr. Bullard asks the support of all demo
crats fof another term. He wants to
have at least one term in the new court
John H. Green of Fruitland announces
as a candidate for school supervisor of
District No. 1 the l'ruitland peninsula.
He Is the present efficient member of the
school board from that district. He has
lived In the county since soon after the
war. coming from South Carolina, ot
which state he is the scion of one of the
old families. He was a Confederate sol
dier and is proud of the "Cross of Hon
or" he wears which designates him as
such, the gift of the Daughters of the
Confederacy. Mr. Green has made a
faithful member of the school board,
has a deep Interest in educational matters,
and as his record is worthy his district
will probably continue him in office.
U. L. bipprcll, a well-known dentist ot
Florahome, makes announcement as a
candidate for representative in the legis
lature. Mr. Sipprell is a native of Brit
ish Columbia, but has lived in the Unit
ed States some 20 years and is a full citi
zen. He made an unsuccessful race for
the legislature some years ago, but will
try again, hoping for better luck. Like
all citizens of his section be is anxious
for the drainage of the rich muck lands
that there abound, and will make his
race on that platform. None of the other
candidates will make an issue with him
for all will readily agree to work for the
same thing. The people of Florahome
earnestly desire drainage, and as they are
wilting the cost shall be levied upon the
lands benefitted, they should have their
desire. The candidate who would not
agree to work for the interests of these
good people, would merit defeat.
Mr. a,. K. Conway, a prosperous farm
er of Harlem, has his announcement this
week for school commissioner from Dis
trict No. 3. Mr. Conway is a firm friend
of our public schools and his principle
object in desiring to serve on the board
is that he may assist in bettering school
conditions for the children in the country
districts. This he would do without
lessening the advantages of children in
the towns. He feels that country child
ren do not have the opportunities that
are their due. Mr. Conway is an intel
ligent and most excellent gentleman, and
the father of a family of eight children.
S. b. 1 immons and I. N. Hall of Ban-
ncrvillc, have both announced as candi
dates for county commissioners from the
4th district to succeed Morgan Bohan-
non, who is also a candidate for re-election.
Mr. Timmons is an old and hon
ored citizen of the county, a veteran of
the Confederacy and a democratic war
horse. He is well-known in all sections
of the county because of his prominence
in church work and because of. political
activities of former years. Mr. Hall is a
well-known and esteemed citizen of the
district and has a following of friends
who will follow his banner. Mr. Hall is
a farmer and a minister of the Primitive
Baptist church. He looked the field
over carefully before deciding to make
his announcement. Mr. Bohannon s
candidacy was commented on last week.
He is the present etucient member ot
the board from the 4th district, and
stands high in the esteem of the people
of the county.
In the 3rd district Mr. IS. 1. aolana of
San Mateo is a candidate for re-nomina
tion. He is a member of the present
board and has stood with the board in
all matters of public improvement. Mr.
Solana is a member of one of the old
families of the county, is a young man
and stands high in the esteem of the vot
ers of his district.
Edward North of Bostwick makes his
announcement this week as a candidate
for county commissioner from district
No. 4. Mr. North served two years on
the board and was succeeded a little
more than three years ago by Mr. Solana.
Since then the districts have been re
adjusted, and the east side of the river,
now represented by Mr. solana, is in an
other district. During his incumbency
Mr. North was a painstaking, faithful of
ficial, and there was general regret over
hit retirement. He is the only candi
date from the Bostwick precinct, and
his friends and neighbors there have
urged him to make the race, knowing
him to be a progressive man, one in full
sympathy with the modern improvements
now under way in the county. Mr.
North is a farmer. Should he be elected
the citizens of the Fourth district will
know that they will be well represented,
and that there will be no backward step
in the march of county progress.
J. J. Green of Bardin, a farmer and a
gentleman who enjoys to a remarkable
degree the confidence of his neighbors,
it is said will make his announcement
soon as a candidate for county commis
sioner from the 4th district. Mr. Green's
candidacy will make the fifth to enter
Irom that district. He has long been
urged by prominent men in the district
to make the race, and that pressure has
been repeated this year. He is regarded
as a specially strong man.
It is understood that Rev. G. W. Riles
will be a candidate for school com mis
sioner from district No. 3, but the News
has no official confirmation of the re
port. Mr. Riles is a strong man and is
well-known in the county.
J. U. Melzer of rruitland announces
this week as a candidate for county com
missioner for district No. 1. Mr. Melzer
has resided at Fruitland for upwards of 20
years and is respected all over the district
as a man of industry and honor. He
lived in Palatka for some time and was
connected with the Stanton Foundry &
Machine Shop. He is a fruit grower and
farmer at Fruitland and his candidacy
will meet with the approval of all who
know him.
R. J. Hancock has his -announcement
this week to succeed himself as tax col
lector, an office he holds by appoint
ment from Gov. Gilchrist on the unani
mous endorsement of the county exe
cutive committee. Mr. Hancock is solv
ing out the unexpired term of A. S. Wil
lard, resigned. lie is a young man of
peculiar fitness for the office he seeks in
that he has the expert knowledge essen
tial to right conduct of the work. He
comes from Bistwick precinct. It Is
not thought that Mr. Hancock will have
any opposition.

St. Johns Lodge of Palatka Host
to Over 100 Guests.
The News regrets it cannot tell the
whole story (and make the mail) of the
magnificent banquet and smoker given
by St. Johns Lodge K. of P. in Castle
Hall last night.
This lodge, with a membership of 185,
is composed of the flower of Palatka's
manhood, and the Pythian spirit is a
dominating influence for good in this
This lodge entertained more than 100
guests at a grand banquet last night, with
an elaborate and well-served menu pre
pared by Louis Kalbfield.
The Tilghman orchestra furnished ex
quisite music, and Hon. S. J. Hilburn
acted as toastmaster, delivering an ad
dress of welcome that was both eloquent
in sentiment and expression, and which
gave an "at home feeling" to all guests.
Other addresses were deliv" red by
Grand Vice-Chancellor, H. H. Richard
son of Jacksonville, Mr. E. A. Benson
of Omaha, Neb., and Judge E. Noble
Calhoun of this city. They were . deep
ly interesting.
Mr. Benson has recently purchased
above 40,000 acres of Putnam county
lands, and in the future will play a large
hand in the development of this county
and section. His address last night
showed him to be not only an accom
plished after dinner speaker, but a man
whose head is filled with wisdom and
wit, and his heart overflowing with the
true Pythian principles of "friendship,
charity and benevolence." Mr. Benson
kept his hearers in an uproar of laughter
for a time, and then, growing more seri
ous, painted a word picture on the
brotherhood of man that for downright
eloquence has rarely been equalled in
this city.
Judge Calhoun, always eloquent,
seemed more so on this occasion. He
made a brilliant speech.
Others to make short responses on call
were, Mayor Davis, H. E. Merryday,
Rev. Wm. Wyllie, Geo. B. Selden, J. N.
Black well and J. V. Walton.
