MAYOR H. A. DAVIS
By Acclamation Expected Op
position Did Mot Materialize.
The city Democratic convention was
held in the council chamber last Mon
day night, as per call of the committee.
Twenty-three of the 27 delcuaies enti
tled to scats were present, ana the con
vention organized by electing H. A.
Merryday, hsu., temporary chairman.
and R. H. Cooper, secretary. These
officers were later made permanent.
Mr. anas smith was on motion given
a seat in the convention as a delegate
from the sixth ward.
Geo. B. Selden, president of the Pa
latka board of trade, nominated Howell
Davis for Mayor in a speech that
would have made that gentleman's
cheeks put on a peep red blush could he
have heard It. Uut he didn t and tnere
fore there was no blushing. This nomi
nation was seconded and there were
no others named for the office. Then
came (lie molion to make the nomina
tion of Mr. Davis by acclamation and it
A committee was sent out to find Mr.
Davis and bring him before the conven
tion that he might tell them how proud
it made him feel to be thus honored.
The committee went it found the can
didate lurking in the shadows of Joe
Haughton s drug store, and dragged him
before the convention. His entrance to
the hall was the signal for prolonged
applause. The nominee could not do
other than enjoy his reception.
Mr. Davis stood while Chairman Mer
ryday told him of the verdict of the
convention and asked him if he bad
anything to say why sentence should not
soon be passed.
It was a neat speech Mr. Davis made
in reply, thanking the convention and
promising to inforce the ordinances-.
1 he mayor is making steady improve
ment as a public speaker. His words
come easily and arc linked in terse and
pointed sentences, and at times he gels a
bit eloquent. Given time and inocu
lated with the political virus and he'll
make the average gubernatorial candi
date look like 30 cents in an oratorical
The convention authorized Mr. Davis
to appoint the ward committeemen.
At one time Monday it looked a little
shaky for Mr. Davis' re-nomination.
Judge V. Walton took it into his head
on Saturday that his law partner, H. E.
Merryday, would make a mighty good
mayor, and he got busy without the
knowledge of his partner who was in
Jacksonville on legal business. By
Monday noon it was claimed mat Mr.
Walton had secured enough pledges to
nominate Mr. Merryday, but then the
latter remembered that he was the attor
ney in a suit against the cily, brought
against the "Mayor of the cily of Palatka,
or his successor in office," and that it
wouldn t look exactly parlimentary
to argue a suit against Mayor Merryday,
so he quit the game even more sudden
ly than he entered it.
Then there was talk ot Mr. wm. u.
Tilghman making the race in place of
Mr. Merryday, but Mr. Tilghman de
clined; blandly, but firmly, declined.
William Anderson and wife of New
York cily, are guests of his brother,
Capt. G. W. Anderson.

panied by their wives, are visiting at
Palm Beach and other points south, be

The transfer of property recently pur
chased by Mrs. Pearl of New York, of
Chas. Francis and G. E. Gillette, was ef
fected the past week to Mrs. Martha
Weber and E. Leonard.
The entertainment at the Town Hall,
for the benefit of the Congregational
Ladies Aid, was a great success. Mrs.
W. H. Fox of New Haven, must recieve
the laurels for making it so, assisted by
several of our winter guests. Mrs. B. B.
Savage and her sister, Miss Corrigan,
favorintr bv song. Mrs. box. Mrs. Kecve
and Mrs. Tilloston with pleasant reading,
Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. W haley with
original verse. The hat trimming con
test was much enjoyed and E. Lothrop
carried off the prize as a trimmer Mr.
Lothroo is an expert. 1 he ladies had
their innings in a bottle stopper whittl

Eva Corlhell tvine as to perfection, Mrs.
Corthell winning, with a double-ender.

The nicnic at the old homestead of
the Mann's at Mannville, proved one of
the season's most delightful events.
Quite a number came from out of town
by tram, atoot ana norsenacK. 1 ne
tables were laid in the spacious dining
room. As hostess Mrs. Mann was assist
ed by her sister, Mrs. Giles of Oilman,

phia. Old and young were entertained
in the way they most enjoyed. Music
was a great feature, the drum corps out
shining all. Later S. G. Coburn and
wife, and R. Phillips of Palatka and Mrs.
Giles, Mrs. Pearl, Mrs. Cook and Mrs.
Eva Corthell were delightfully entertain
ed at 6 o'clock dinner by Miss Mary Far
is Coburn and the neighborhood awoke
to the sounds of mirth from the Lake
View. Our season has been a pleasant
one hoping all have enjoyed us as we
have those who have been here.
Favors Mr. Bullard.
Editor Palatka News:
I ask space in your valuable paper to
say a few words in behalf of Mr. G. F.
Bullard, our very worthy and efficient
tax assessor, candidate for re-election
Having worked with Mr. Bullard in
the preparation of the tax rolls, I have
had special opportunity to observe his
work in detail, and can say that he is
exceptionally careful and painstaking.
His vears of experience in the office to
gether with his thorough knowledge of
land values pre-eminently qualifies him
to discharge the duties of this very im
portant office in an accurate and satis
factory manner, and I think it would be
unwise for us to exchange this fair, im
partial and experienced official for an
inexperienced man, especially, since we
have a large bonded debt to take care of
now, making it very important that we
have a very complete assessment of all
property such as will require the ser
vices of an experienced man in this line
of work. The present incumbent pos
sesscs all the qualifications required fur
the task, and I trust that the voters of old
Putnam will rally to his support at the
coming Primary and return him to the
office by the largest majority he ha
ever received, and I am sure he wilt be.
