CURRY'S SHOE STORE. ft i 1a V, it 7 WANT A BRICK STREET. Property Owners of River Street Petition Council. At the meeting of the city council on Tuesday night a communication was re ceived from Ihe city bond trustees, rec ommending the paving of South Third street irom Lemon to Ihe railroad cross ing, and River street from the railroat crossing to tne gate beyond the W ilson cypress (Jo s olfice with vitrified brick. The bond trustees also submitted esti mates of the cost of such pavement, both with the brick laid flat, and with same laid edgeways, as on Lemon street. There was also presented to the coun cil a petition signed by nearly all the property owners of the streets named asking the council to reject Ihe proposi tion of the bond trustees to pave with brick, and asking for other material. The council thereupon rejected the proposition and appointed a committee of three to wait upon the board of bond trustees and try, if possible, to get that body to consent to pavement of these streets with other material. Office a Public Trust. A public office is a public trust. A candidate may be elected by a bare ma jority of one vote in three thousand. and yet the minute he enters upon the discharge of his duties as an official he does so as the representative, not only oi an tnose three thousand voters, but oi an oi tne people ol his countv, or dis trict, as the case may be. Public trusts should be administered in the interests of all of the people. They are not given to politicians, or men, ior tne purpose of punishing do luteal, or personal enemies, and the candidate who is a candidate because he wants to humiliate some other man, or canaiuate is most assuredly the candi date to fight shy of. Every candidate who aspires for nosi tion in ihe primary of next week should make his fight for the position on his own merits. The people will give him a respectful hearing, and pass upon those merits at lite polls, but thev ouirht not. and we believe will not, estimate his merits by a contrast of the alleged de merits of his opponent, or of some other candidate for some other position in the same primary election. In more than one recent primary elec tion in this state the independent demo cratic voters have stamped their disap proval upon Ihe mud-slinging, "chip-on-the shoulder," style of campaign work, and we believe the people of this county are going to register again their disap proval of such methods next week. Pensacola Evening News. Endorses Mr. Williams. Editor Palatka News: Will you kindly permit me to say a few words in behalf of the candidacy of Mr. D. Williams for commissioner from the Fifth district? Mr. WiU.uins was born and raised in Florida and has been a good citizen of Putnam county for a quarter of a cen tury. A few years ago he served as commissioner from this district and Ihe district was never better or more eco nomically represented. Mr. Williams is thoroughly qualified to transact the business of the office. He is a man of sound business princi ples, of strict personal integrity, of good judgment and is exceptionally well qualified in an educational way to fill the position. Those who know Mr. Williams best believe he will give an administration of affairs of the strictest economy. The taxes paid by the people of Put nam are already too high. The county has little to show for the enormous sums it has paid in the past and Ihe Fifth district has nothing at all. It is a district of heavy liabilities in the way of taxation and without an asset. There is only one bridge, no other item of pub- lie improvement in its borders. And even when all Ihe contracts for clay roads are completed under the recent heavy bond issue arrangement, the dis trict will only have about 8 miles of road growing out of the bond issue. Mr. Williams believes in good roads and will do all in his power to promote them. He will be zealous in his activity for the people in all parts of the district and not merely for his own section. We believe he will work as hard for a good road from Melrose to Grandin as for Ihe one so badly needed from Keuka to the Alachua county line. Mr. Williams has repcatly slated that he be lieved the bond trustees should have constructed first the roads in the more sandy sections of Ihe county and then built them through the flatwoods coun try next as the sandy districts needed the improvements more. Sir. Williams believes in hiring out the convicts as Ihe most economical way in disposing of Ihem, rather than to attempt to maintain an expensive county chain gang. We feel assured that with Mr. Wil liams on the board of commissioners. all contracts for public works awarding according to law and with sound eco nomic judgment and that he will see that all contractors are required to give adequate bonds for the performance of their duties. The people of this district need a commissioner of the strictest personal integrity. They should have a man of competency and ability. They desire a representative who will look to his con stituents for instruction and advice rather than to some wealthy and influ ential Palatka capitalist. These require ments are found in Mr. D. illiams and Ihe people will be acting with erood judgment, when they elect him com missioner from the 1'ifth district. West Putxam. Johnson, May 2d, 1910. Chamberlain's Liuinicnt. This is a new preparation and a good one. It is especially valuable as a enre for chronic and mnscular rheumatism. and for the relief from pain which it affords in acute inflammatory rheuma tism. Those who have used it have invariably spoken of it in the highest terms of praise. Lame back, lame shoulder and stiff neck are due to rheu matism of the muscles, usually brought on by exposure to cold or damp, and are quickly cured by applying this liniutent freely and massaging the af fected parts. Soreness of the muscles, whether induced by violent exercise or injury, is allayed by this liniment. For sale by Ackerman-Stewart Drug Co.

To The Democratic Voters of Florida: I take this opportunity of addressing you a last word, as this is the last publi cation of the weekly papers before the battle of the ballots lakes place on May turn, to say to each of you that we know that the United Stales Senate is com posed largely of men representing Ihe corporations and trusts of our country. ana I nelieve that fact is notorious. I have offered myself as a candidate for United Slates Senator to be voted for by all of those who believe that the masses of the people should control the legislation of ihe country. You know that I will, in the future as I have in the past, represent by my political actions me masses ol Ihe people. We should look the matter squarely in Ihe face. If you believe that the people should be more strongly reDresenled in Ihe senate oi tne Untied States then they should vote for their candidate. I am Ihnt can. aidate. I have nothing to say against my op ponents. I believe that one of them is making an accusation acrainst me. in tended to involve my integrity. The accusation is made for the purpose of detracting from me and is wholly false. in no particular is it true. If Ihe people want to be represented more distinctly in Ihe Senate of the United Stales than thev are now 1 aak that they do not permit themselves to be numnugged by campaign falsehoods. You know that I have not and am not guilty of any official misconduct of any Kina. iou Know that if elected I will work for Ihe people with all my power. 1 nere is no reason for me In he ripfpnt ed. There are more of us than there are of those who seek special privileges and who enjoy special privileges, and if we stana together tor our protection and Dcneftl as Ihe special privileged few will stand together for their benefit, we are Douna io win, ana every man should do his duly as an American citizen by voting nis own conviction, though money and other influences are exerted against us. We know thai money has been spent, and is now being spent in large amounts for the purpose of defeat- ng your candidate. The sDecial inter ests are furnishing this money and you know thai all of it is being spent againsl me. l asK that you double your efforts. f such is possible, to defeat such meth ods. It is my opinion that we will w in a great victory on May 10th, 1910. t ours truly, N. B. BROWARD. To Increase Capital Stock. The business of the Selden Cypress Door Co. of this city is enioving a full share in the general prosperity of the country. Its recently added veneering plant has been most successful and has added largely to the general output of the business. The company now gives employment to 230 hands. A special meeting of the stockholders of the company has been called to meet at Ihe offices of the company in this city on the 31st inst. for the purpose of in creasing the capital stock of the com pany from $70,000 lo $150,000. the object of increase being to further enlarge Ihe plant. A few more manufacturing plants with ihe business aggressiveness of the Selden Co. would put Palatka in the forefront of Southern cities. aBECBBEcctcccccccaaaaaaajuccEccccaauuaiaaajaaJajaastj Hon. Lewis W. Zim Replies to the Hon. Frank Clark As Minstrel Performances, Joint 0 ! H Debates Are Educators, Thinks Mr. Clark Needs All the Time at" His Command Making Explanations. St. Augustine, Fla., April 20, 1910. Hon. Frank Clark, nember of Congress, Washington, D. C. Dear Sir:-- Replying to yours of 12th, I must say that I decline your generous offer to engage me in joint debate. I am at a loss to understand why you should wish to link me up with yourself on the hustings when all the time at your command will be needed in making explanations. The fact is, I have never looked upon joint debates as productive of good. As minstrel per formances, they are passable; but as educators, they are a huge failure. They are not instructive. They merely serve g the participants as a medium through which to g discharge a surplus of vituperation or an over- i flow of vulgarity. g They do not convince the thoughtful, and only provoke the thoughtless into temporary ecstacies. I have never considered that a platform was made merely to stand upon, and to be violated g at the will of the beneficiary of the people's g votes. acEECCBOBanaoflBaaccBCCEtsBGECcEcccEcrxEEGCKKcaaaaaaaaa Favors Mr. Broward. Editor Palatka News: In connection with the interest evi denced by our people in the pending primary election for United States Sena tor, I feel that it would be well to em phasize a phase of the subject of prime importance, as It may aid In assisting our fellow democrats to render a verdict by their votes for him, who by his past rec ord stands nearest to Ihem and their para- luuuiu uiii-iuM, wuutH. justny me as sertion that first, last and all the lime, N. U. Broward has stood in the largest sense for Ihem and theirs. The personality of the man, occupy ing a commanding position in public life, by his actions, tone and color give lo his public career, and he whose faith in the people is governed in a sincere belief that no good thing should be withheld from them lhat would lead to a higher and broader citizenship, to the end lhat they may enjoy to the fullest the blessings, rightfully that belong to a people whose government is based upon the principle of the greatest good to the largest number, is at once our best citi zen and one our people should delight to honor. Is N. B. Broward such a man? He Is. Has he so proved by his acts? He has. Is he not deserving of the support of those whom his actions have and will benefit? In my opinion he is. be cause in no method of the operation of governmental policies can Ibe people reserve so direct a benefit as in that which pertains lo education. It is the distinctive line that indicates and marks . the progress of a state or community in the broader enjoyment of life. it lias been said, that ne who causes two blades of grass to grow where there were none, is a public benefactor. This is axiomatic truth emphasizing the im portance of our agricultural pursuits.' How much greater is that public bene faction that opens to the mind Ihe vistas of the past and. the Veritas of the present, seen and seeing in the light of attain ment. Space forbids elaboration, and I. content myself by saying: The term in the life of the child is now. The school term is but short, the door of opportuni ty closes and he who attains not goes out into life unequipped to meet its conditions. Handicapped at the start, how can the success we all hope for in life be his. Governor Broward's fight for the re clamation of the Everglades meant much to our school opportunities. In season and out of season, against pressure that would have discouraged an ordinary man, in spite of the jeers and ridicule of his opponents, and even the doubts of some of his friends, he Dressed forward until the goal of his ambition had been reached and a magnificent domain se cured as a rich heritage to the people largely for the use of the school fund of our state. This act nlone should and does stamp him as Ihe friend and lover of his fellow- citizens, and is enough in Ihe opinion of the writer, to secure him the votes by which he will reach the position to which he aspires, and to which he will bring lhat devotion and singleness ot heart, which has made himand his poli cies a tower of strength to and for the people. Trusting that his hope will meet a happy fruition, I am one who loves him for Ihe enemies he has made. Dr. H. R. Estes. El a a a a a a a n a ra B B n D Q Passable; as a Failure.
