Wylie of Intcrlachen, who has the contract for constructing the hard surface road from Mannvillc to Francis, was in the city yesterday. Mr. Wylie states that his road is now completed to Hunter, full half way, and that the first five miles of the road is in fine condition, being so that it is neither affected hy rains or drought. "This road is a good, hardihighway," said Mr. Wy lie, "and I have yet to hear of one 'kick' concerning it. Where there was danger of water getting on the road. 1 have made ditches to carry it off, so that no water is ever found standing on it." The News has heard many commend atory remarks from people who have seen Mr. Wylic's road and all agree that it is a piece oi work that will prove en tirely satisfactory. Mr. Wylie says that Intcrlachen is looking forward to a prosperous year, and that the advance guard is already present. The Palatka-Burbank Colony company has established its office there, and many prospective purchasers of land arc visiting the little town daily, some of whom are so well pleased with the place that they are buying Intcrlachen property. Onlv the Past week Mr. Wylie sold for Mrs. M. A. Gano, her bv acre tract at that place to Hugo Schulte, a stranger from the north. Of this 60 acre, 20 is in orange grove, and Hie balance is general farming land. Fall Goods Arriving.

(sai.i HKNKY HUTCHINSON, Clerk Circuit Court, Putnam Co., Fla, By Henry Hutoklnsoii, Jr., D.U, LOCAL OPTION'S BIG CONVENTION Just a Clever Fake Planned by fleas. Holt, Whisky s Cam paign Manager. Great Gathering of Prominent Men Failed to Gather. Tally one for Pleas. Holt or, perhaps It s several. The big local option convention In Jacksonville on Thursday of last week was a lake gathering. Instead of a monster convention of the prominent men from all parts of the state, men of exalted character and splendid intellectual endowment," hundred s of them as represented by the Times-Union and the Metropolis, there wasn't more than 35 all tojd, who were delegates taking part. Bv actual count there were exactly 103 men pres ent, many of whom were spectators, ana some ot whom arc lor the amend ment.. The meeting was held in the lobby of the Aragon Hotel, and was open to the public. A dozen men, some of whom are, or have been, prominent, did all the business. The work was all planned in advance, and it didn't take but a little more than an hour to complete the bus! ness in hand. Hear the Times-Union: "The meeting was unquestionably the largest, most successful and altogether most notable gathering of a political nature ever held in the state." Of course! That big convention that nominated Geo. F. Drew for governor was only a small precinct caucus in com parison. The last State Democratic Convention the one that nominated Wm. S. Jennings for governor, was another small affair. The few men who did gather in Jack sonville last Thursday did not cause any noticeable increase from the usual noon crowd in the lobby of the Ara gon. But the Times-Union printed a list of the delegates. So did the Metropolis Not one-third of those whose names were printed in the list ot delegates were present. The list, together with the pictures of the delegates and the short biographical sketches of their careers, was all pre pared arranged for in advance by Pleasant A. Holt, manager of the local option campaign which was organized and is being paid for by the organized whisky interests of the slate. 1 hat is the truth. The Times-Union made some mis takes in its list of delegates. Here is one that was corrected in that paper last Tuesday: hdi lor Timcs-Uuion: I notice in your Thursday paper you have my name as one of the delegates in favor of local option. I will ask you to correct this error, as my name was Just taken from the register book at the Aragon hotel, and will ask you to state in your paper that 1 am a statewide prohibitionist, and expect to do what 1 can to dry the state of Florida. Respectfully yours, "J. W. Kl.MBKOUGH," Webster, Fla. The News has nothing to say regard ing the standing of these men. Several of them are well known in the state, but the bulk of them mentioned as be ing "prominent" arc scarcely known outside their own precincts. Some of them honestly believe in lo cal option as the best manner of dealing with the liquor evil. some ot them don t even believe mat liquor is an evil. Sonic don t care a rap whether it is or not they are willing to give it their support provided they are paid liberally for doing it. Some three or four of those named as being present are said to have been in favor of "drying" their home county. But the trreat bodv ot them are lor the licensed saloon at home and everywhere else. The strange thing about that alleged convention is that PROl'KSSKDLY reputable newspapers like the Timcs- Union and the Metropolis woula lend, or sell, themselves to Pleas. Holt and his organization of whisky dealers to as sist in misleading the people of Florida. If these papers deny that they part'ci- pated knowingly in this "fake," then their managers should be with their kind in an asylum fot the simple minded. They are cither knaves or f too easy for metropolitan journalists. At the Orpheum. The pictures at the Orpheum 5 and 10 cent theater have been e.-pecially good all this week and have certainly been appreciated by patrons, as shown by the large attendance. Wednesday six turns were shown and last night there were seven, i nis is an unusuany large num ber. The W hitney Sisters, song and dance artists, wern't much, but even the man agement of a theater gels stung once and occasionally. These girls couldn't quite dance. However, the audience didn't mind, for all felt they were getting three or four times their money s worth in pictures. Last night Bailey ana hawaras. Silly Sam and the Soubrctlc," began an en gagement which continues through the balance of the week. They are really clever people and were roundly applaud ed, showing the audience appreciates the efforts of Manager Kalbfield to put on attractions that please. The theater will be crowded the balance of the week. Beginning Monday, George Murphy the dancing demon and Helen Scott, novelty singer, will be the stage attrac tion for three nights. 1 he Orphenm habit Is growing rap idly. Will Appeal to Circuit Court. A case for assault and battery wherein county commissioner W. C. Alvers of Sisco is complainant and Starling Pad gett of near Crescent Cily is defendant, was on before Justice John E. Marshall last Monday morning. The difficulty grew out of a disagreement over counly road work, and Sir. Padgett, insenscd at the commissioner, attempted to pull him off his horse, as the evidence showed. Mr. Alvers is a small man, physically, and is about 70 years of age. After hearing the evidence, Justice Marshtil imposed a fine of fi and costs on Padgett, who gave notice of an ap peal to the Circuit Court.

The pulpit of the Presbyterian church which lias been vacant since the deeply regretted resignation of Rev. Dr. Ward law in the spring, is to be supplied per manently at the beginning of the com ing month. The pulpit committee of the church has but recently made ar rangements with Rev. J. W. Purccll, D. D., late of Monliccllo.-Ark. Dr. Purcell will move to Palatka with his family and become the settled supply of the Presbyterian church, the question of his call to the pastorale being de ferred until the doctor and the people of the church become acquainted, and such arrangement becomes mutually agreeable. l'rom the Christian Observer of recent date, under the department head of church work, the News clips the follow ing reference to Dr. Purccll in Monti cello, Ark.: "The pastor, Rev. J. W. Purcell, D. D., who supplied the pulpit of his for mer charge at Kcyser, W. Va., during the vacation of the pastor, Rev. M, B. l-ambdin, returned to his work the first Sabbath in September. At the morning hour, he welcomed into the member ship of the church twenty-seven new members, administering the sacrament of baptism to twenty of this number. Two infants were also baptized at the same hour. Perhaps not less than a dozen more will be admitted soon. This Ingathering is largely the fruits of a scries of union evangelistic meetings which was held during the month of August by Rev. John 1$. Culpepper and his son. Burke. During the present short pastorate seventy-three members have been received, making the present membership of this church something over tnree hundred." Palatka Loses Popular Lawyer Mr. Alex H. Odom for the past year or two associated with Hon. a. I. Un burn In the practice of law, left on Mon day for Jacksonville, where he will open an office and engage in practice. Mr. Odom is a gentleman of profound legal attainments and in his practice he has met with unbroken success. His opinion on questions of law have been accepted as final. He is a student al ways, as well as a man of keen insight. He is also more than that one of the most genial, delightful gentlemen alive, and his going means more than some thing to his numerous friends in Palatka. INTERLACHEN ITEMS.

Simple in construction. Absolutely dependable. TROCBLJE-PROOF, assuring the Maximum service at the Minimum cost. Palatka Auto & Supply Company, Local Agents ' PALATKA, FLA WILL BUILD CLUB HOUSE ON RIVER. Palatka Athletic Association Decides to Incorporate. When the Palatka Athletic Associa tion voluntarily surrendered its club rooms in the old Florida Southern Build ing a month or more ago to accomodate the big Havana cigar factory of Jose Ej- calante & Co. it made a sacrifice. The full extent of the sacrifice was not discovered until about a week after it was made. Then the young men who had been In the habit of spending some of their evenings at the club, found they had no plpce to go. They h?d been in the habit of taking exercise by bowling, and many had spent their evenings socially, playing billiards and pool. And they were not all young men. Some of the club members were among the staid business men of the city. There was nothing to do but get a new club room, and there isn't a hall In the city available that is big eneugh. The only solution was to build one. At a recent meeting of the association it was decided that the Palatka Athletic Association should be Incorporated with a capital of $6,000. A part of this to be used in building and the balance in furnishing a club house on the river front. The foot of Kirkland street was de cided on as a fine location, and applica tion for permit to build there was placed before the council. Tuesday night the council decided favorably on the application and gave the association a 20 year franchise. Plans for the new club are now being prepared by an architect. The building is to extend out over the river on piers. The business men of Palatka are encour aging the entcprisc and Athletic Asso ciation stock is looking up. As it should. POMONA LETTER.
