the news stand with a view to obtaining

*>uy, steal, or borrow a copy of the peo-
ple's paper.':
Upon making inquiry of the news
agent, Mr. Sturgis, he informed us that
he had not only sold all his TANDARD'S.
but that he had afterwards traded off
copies'of the Times-Union for copies of
THE STANDARD which had already been
sold and read, only to be ence more dis-
pensed to an appreciative public that
knows a good thing when it sees it, and
has evidently little use for the peculiar
political creed of the independents.
The people up here want THE. STAND-
ARD. I offered 25 cents for one in vain.
A Friendly Rivaly.
There is quite a contest between the-
friends "of thae Ocean Steamship line of
Savannah and the Clyde line of this place,
as to which will realize the most money for
the Sisters of St. Joseph in disposing of the
tickets, at present the Clyde line is in the
lead but the friends of the Ocean Steam-.
ship company^ are, determined that they

pression of the will ol the party miight bd
had, sent a committee from its body to
attend the sitting of the executive atf'the
time this body selected the inspectors to
manage the election. They modestly re-
quested that the organization be permit-
ted to name one inspector at each polling
place, as the inspectors consist of three at
each polling place, this request could not
be intended in the interest of fraud, but
fairly construed, meant a caution against
this request, carrying with it the wish
of nearly 500 organized, Democrats who
belong to no ring, but sought to have a
fair election, was refused by the execu-
tive committee, almost all being mem-
bers of the ring. Thay claim it as a
right they have to appoint all three of
the inspectors at each polling place. They
did so and selected men whom they
were bound to say were honest and who
could give the people a fair election.
Yet what do they charge in their organ?
They charge these very inspectors with
being men so lost to honor' that they
permitted men to vote who did not
belong to the party and who did not
live in the respective wards! That they
permitted men who choose to do so, to
vote as they saw fit!
It is a principle of law that those who
introduce a witness are bound, having
offered him, to sustain the honor and
credit of said witness. This executive
committee gave the party as inspectors
these men, yet lost to shame, they seek
to gain-a lost canse by sacrificinlg the
honor of the men they guaranteed to the
party were honest. It seems they were
honest and it appears they hoped they
would not be so.
In conclusion, the ring, having the
executive committee, named the time,
place and managers of this contest.
If XIe men they put in charge
were uch as they claim, the ring could
have voted as often as they pleased,
and for whoever they pleased, yet
all will see at a glance if they were
honest min (which we assert they
were) those who opposed the ring could
not have been guilty, of the charges
Again, if the inspectors were as dishonest
and unworthy as the ring organ claims.
then would it have been possible for
those who opposed the ring to more than
secure their rights? Such wrongs' were
alone possible to have been practiced by
the ring, and such must have been in-
tended by the ring when a ring executive
committee refused the modest request of
so largedan organized body, whose re-
quest fairly construed, went to establish
a guard to prevent fraud and preserve the
honor of the party while engaged in a
brotherly contest.
In other -words-if the inspectors were
honest, then neither'side could have prac-
ticed the frauds as alleged.' If dishonest,
having been appointed by the ring;, they
might have done all that is: charged; yet
those who opposed them could not have
committed such frauds. It would have
been difficult indeed to have secured
justice. More they could not possibly
have had in either case.
The miserable plight of those who
fought fri t--elf nlone and lost all, presents
'--,-,:ta-lo sad indeed; but we never
dreamed that in their de.parr rbrey uid
charge fraud against our best citizens,
their chosen inspectors. We do40 not
know these men if-they do not teach
these ring robbers a lesson on top of the
one they now have. DEMOCRAT.
They Are Not So Stupid.
From THE STANDAR.D of April 17, 1892.
The editor of THE STANDARD had not
been in the convention hall five minutes
yesterday morning before a prominent
delegate ,approached and said: "I read
that article in oUR organ, the T.-U. to-day
and had to smile; I mean the article
charging 'fraud' against the 'kickers'.
"In my ward, Thursday night,', he
went on t'o say, "a prominent leader of
what You call the 'ring' brought up
fourteen Republicans aud got them t'o
vote the 'ring' ticket solid. He seemed
to weaken a little at first, and asked them
if they would not say they Were Demo-
crats. :No, they would not. 'Will you
not promise to vote the county Demo-
cratic ticket next fall' They would nt
even promise to do that much. All right
said the 'ring candidate, go ahead' and
"And they did! The entire fourteen
Republicans in my ward put their bal-
lots in for the 'ring' delegates, a, solid
shot! And yet the T.-U. cries fraud!"
This is only one instance of "fraud."
The '"ringsters" can get the names if they
will call for them.,
SAnd It Squealed.
From .The Standard, April 17, 1892:"
The rin was asked to order a primary
to nominate candidates. Instead_'of do-
ing so it decided that they should be
nominated by a convention.

It placed the meeting of the conven-
t'on six months before the election so as
to keep its opponents from having an op-
portunity to organize.
t was, asked to permit its opponents at
least one inspector at every voting pre-
cinct. It refused to do s0.
It bad the selection of the time and
manner of selecting delegates in its own
The party machinery was operated in
its interests.
It took every possible advantage over
its opponents.
And when it got smashed, it squealed.
It Will Die of Imbecility.
From the Daily Standard April 19.
The esteemed Times-Union says "the
attempt to recall the committee on cre-
dentials (by the Opera house convention)
strikes all fair-minded people as being a
forcible indication that the leaders were
afraid to submit to the asseublage the
report of the committee."
Every convention has absolute control
of the committees it appoints. It may,
recall any committee before it gets to the
dooron retiring to 'mke its report; the
convention is the creator, the committee
the creature.
This parliamentary ruling is as old as
Madison and Jefferson. Two or three
weekr ago a committee of three from the
Duval Democratic club was sent to the
countyexecutive committee to respect- :'
fully request that the "anti-ring" ticket
be conceded one inspector at each voting t
place on the 14 (which request, however,
was positively denied) and in a few )
minutes thereafter a motion was made
in the club that the committee from the
club be recalled. The motion carried and
the committee was recalled.
But this aside. The credentials comm- f
mittee DID report last Saturday and the .
convention, by an almost unanimous
vote, declined to acqede to its preposterous
suggestion that since the "ring" hiad lost I
(after having all the election machinery (
n its own hands) we now rub out and
try it over again. "

iiiti t was sent OUL with no other power

day was clothed with no authority what-
ever 'to suggest a new Democratic

to returning a list of legally elected dele-
gates, and it had no more right' to sug.I

than it had to nominate a candidate for
the presidency. f ,

generously granted.

As it Seems to an Outsider.
To the Editor of THE STANDARD.
Standard, April 19, 1892. 1,'
jIhave been observant of parties and
politics for some years past, and have
noted some strange antics. Two years.
ago, 1 understand, a county Denocratic
executive committee was elected for two "
years, which time expired last Saturday.
The party in this couAtty has not been
getting along very harm(oniouslV of late
because, don't you know, great; men will
sometimes differ. These factions call
each other by the euphonious names of
ring and anti-ring for; short.
To begin with, the ring controlled the
corn mfttee;, they set thloir own time to
hold a primary election to choose' dele-
gates to the county convention to limi-
nate candidates, both cou in '- atnd state.
Recently the county committee had, a
meeting to appoint inspectors at each
voting place to conduct the election. ,
"'They may", the inspectors at every
poling place in the city and county held "
the controlling powermin the interest of
the "ring." Is this so, too?
(,They say" further, that the Duval
.county club met at their offices on, the',
same day these inspectors \\e-r cho.zen,
andrsenta conitninee to the executive
committee with a polite request that the
antis might have one of the ihi't- iusp(-c-
tors at each box, and this was promptly
denied them. Is this true?
Now with these prelimninaiieste ball
was opened on Ttnursday a. no itb the
country and in the evening in the city,
and \hlion all the retnrnswere in, an
overwhelmiug majority turned upjor
the antis. .1
Soon the cry went up 1o the h,,Puse t ..
"fraud! frauiO" and it inuit be trifd ovePr.
Now let me a-k H.... re was
fraud, who was reispo[nible for ii? echo
a hs ter.q %%ho? \
The ring had the coUntm CorUittre
they chose the tinie. the places for the
eOections, the inspectors aiid all the ma-
chinery of election. No one can pretend -;
.to claim that Iheautie- perpetrated the
frauds for the* we-re not permitted to
haveainythiug todo with it. Itispinted
that by'possibility Republicans were al-
lowed to vote, the inspectors thinking
they would go with the "ring," and
when they didn't pan out as was expect-
ed, there was some hi,,h kirking, in-
dulged in. If this were'possible it- would
be another "dynamiter hoist by his own
petard." Then there was another little
episode on Saturday last.
Another election is to be ordered, in
*which none b-lt honest men are to vote
or be voted for. Of course that will bring
around the political millennium when
everything will be lovely.
Of course the "'saints ought to rule, and
we are the saints."
In conclusion; a defunct comm-ittee
eame in and reported that the committee
had learned that frauds were committed
on both sides, and, therefore, a new deal
must be made. Well you have a perfect
right to own up as to your part of the sin, ....
but the other side prefer to present their
own case. You'remind me very forcibly
of two good old members of a certain
church, who were not so loving as
brothers should have been. Brother
N--, although a good man, would
sometime indulge in his cups too freely,
but when he sobered he would confess,
and the brethren would always forgive

At laqt fearing the good brethern
wonld tire of holding him up he ap-
peared before,the church after a pro-
tracted spree, and said "brethren the best,
thing you can do with me is to turn me
out, and while you are at it I think you
had better turn" Brother Hart out too,
we have both been acting the hypocrite
longe enough. Brother Hart thought
Brother N-- had better represent his
own case only. ,
Now gantemen, in view of all this, and
more of the same sort that will turn
when it becomes necessary, it is vey .
clear to an outsider that you have slIc : A
on your rights, for on election day you
bad the whole machinery in your own
hands, aud now by every principle of
law and equity as well as decency, you
are stopped from taking advantage of
your own wrong.
In Spit of It.
From The Standard April 30,
Col. Cockrell appears as the champion
of the small number of,men who were so
badly dissatisfied with the action of the
county Democratic convention that they
are unwilling tosubmit to its decision.
As their chosen champion it is to be pre- fI
sumed that the showing that he makes, is I
the best one possible for his side of the
Col. Cockrell starts out with the assert "m
tion. In substance that the whole matter
depends on the question as to whether or .
not the convention of Saturday was duly
organized. We accept this Idsue. J
Was the convention leglhy organized?
The then chairman of the Democratic,
executive committee made a report of -'

delegates who were prima faee entitled to '-p

Serve Displayed by a Theatrical Manager
In a 'oolhardy Feat.
"Saii T. Jack is a splendid bluffer,"
said gentleman from Kansas yester-
: day. i1 remember him best when he
was traveling through Kansas with a
burlesque road company. He once struck
Dodge City with a big opera bouffe
troop. It was years ago, when Dodge
City was at the very verge of civiliza-
tion-just hanging on to the edge, as it
were. There was no regular show-
house, and no decent hotel. There was
S plenty of money, though, and that
brought Jack and his company. Tho
town was full of cowboys and roughs,
and they all determined to see the show
and incidentally have some sport with the
"Mr. Jack learned this and realized the
necessity of impressing the natives with
a due sense of his awfulness as a fighter
before the show began. At that time
one Petrpei McCarthy was the deputy
sheriff of Dodge City, and was a reason-
ably efficient officer. For this reason it
was that he felt in duty bound to warn
Mr. Jack of the awful possibilities of
Exhibiting himself. on the streets of
Dodge City in a white plug hat and a
fancy vest. The well meaning deputy
sheriff affected -to despise tenderfeet,
but because of this feeling of official'
responsibility which sentiment was
doubtless more thoroughly aroused at
the thought of a possible free seat at
the show-he started in to give Jack
timely warning, and began his remarks
as follows:
"1'Be you the show boss? asked Pete.
"'1 am, sir,' was the reply.
"'You all allow to act out in the town
hall tonight, 1 reckon?'
"'Yes, sir.'
'You going y'se'l?
"Yes, sir.'
'Be you goin to rustle around town
much in thet thar white stovepipe hat?'
'Well,' said Mr. Jack, who had be-
come tired of being catechised, 'if you
will submit your questions in writing-
provided you can write-I will lay off a
day'and frame my answers for you, but
let me ask a question. Why do youwant
to know' whether I will rustle or no, and
why this pointed reference to my
Greeley hat?'
S"'Wall,' responded the sheriff, a little
hot himself, "cause I kem in hyer to
give yer a pointer; ef you do w'ar tbet
i hat down town. the boys are a-waitin
fer yer and they'll shoot it chock full o'
holes. They don't 'low no sech tiles in
.... Dodge.t Pete then looked at Sam as
much as to say that he thought the hat
would not' be worn. But the sapient
Sammy smiled serenely and said, 'That's
the trick, is it? Well, that's funny.
W ow,if the boys in highfalutin hilaiity
should miss the hat and. hit the wearer
what % would be the result?'
"*6pa jest stan your chances, but 1
reckin y' won't do that-it's kinder
ticklish; not but thet the boys are good
shots, but the likker is a kinder lively-
an-an-wall, they mought raise a little
ha'r, you know--see?'
." 'Just so,' said Sam ana hoeonttued'
Wheinng.. When he had finished he
L _. txri d to Pete,. and holding in his hand
"aseet-of papqr asked that genius if lhe
could read it. 'Pete' could- and did. It
;,. ead, as follows:
.(' ....... .. ... ........................ .
^y ;\...... ..... ................ ....... .....:

S'depot. in just ten minutes-and 1 go
i; loaded always. 1 will wear this paper
thus'-and he pasted the sheet to the
.--* front of his hat. 'All the boys can see
it. Tell those who will dare to shoot-if
.. any-that they had better shoot for
blood.' Pete's jaw dropped at the ulti-
.,, matum of the tenderfoot and the latter'
^'display of nerve. The upshot was that
:'s. the manager wore his tall white Greeley
, hat-and wore his cartridge belt and
l. guns. The boys were congregated owr-
^' side the House of Blazes. to care for their
Ihides-and a feeling of respect for the
':. nerve of the wearer prompted them tu
applaud at his action instead of shooting
at his hat, and that night he hung out

Women Piano Tuners.
There is no -such thing as "women's
work" nowadays. Women write our
letters, run engines, herd cattle, pilot
vessels, conduct law cases, are physi-
cians, work at the blacksmith's forge
and do almost everything that men do.
A new field for their activity is piano
tuning, and some women have already
pre-empted positions in the business.
And there is no reason why women
should not succeed as well, or perhaps
even better, than men in this. They
have delicate, sensitive ears which are
easily trained to detect the slightest
variation in a note of nilsic. The pro;
session is not /one which requires any
great muscular strength, and is clean
and nice.
Time, it Irings the tuner into contact
with every sort of people. But what
self respecting American girl-and she
must not only be self rspecting but
self reliant to undertake tom rake her
own livin--will suffer from thif,? Given
the proper preliminary training, a
natural aptitude, for t_,e bn-moiss, and
the American woman can make a place
for herself in piano tuning as she has in
every other industry she has attempted.
A ",ew conservatory of music in Phil..
adelphia will have a special department
for female students in piano tuning,
regulating, etc., and it is certain that
the department will always be well
filled with pupTs. Success to the woman
piano tuner-and let the men look to
their laurels.-Music and Drama.
London Streets in the Time of George II.
There were certain dangers and in-
conveniences walking along the streets
in London in the Seventeenth century.
The finest dress might be ruined by the
carelessness of a dustman or a chimney
sweep; the custom of exposing mipat on
open bulkheads led to many an irrepar-
able stain of grease. Bullies pushed the
peaceful passenger into the gutter-it
was a great, time for street swagger;
barbers blew the flour into wigs at open
doorways, causing violent wrath aniong
those outside; mad bulls careered p
and down the streets; men quarre6le,
made a ring and fought it out before
the traffic could go on: pickpockets were,
both numerous and dexterous; footpads
abounded in the open squares of Lin-
coln's Inn, Bloomsbury, and Portman;
highwaymen swarmed on all the roads;
men servants were insolent and rascally:
the noise in the leading streets was deaf
ening; in a shower the way'became im
passable from the rain spouts, in the
roofs, which discharged their contents
upon the streets below.-Walter BesAnt
in Harper's. "

Sacred Cats in Egypt. .
Herodotus says that when a qat died af

occupants of, the dwelling* went into
mourning and shavedoff their eyebrows.
When a fire occurred they were morel
anxious to save the cats than to extin-
guish the conflagration. Nevertheless.
in some parts of the same country cats
were regarded as unclean animals-for

ror as impure in a neighboring city.
That was the case with the crocodile in
Egypt, which in some parts was ruth-

others it was made a pet of, laden with
gold ornaments and waited upon by
priests.-Washington Star.
In a Free Dispensary.
"It's really a strange thing to me,"
said 9ne of the staff at a hospital dis-

at the little window of the drug store to
take thd bottles of charity medicine's
and thrust them in the folds of an ex-
pensive coat; "it /,really is a strailI

He is in Florida, Taking an Active
Part Against the Democratic Party.
Senator Call refused to accept the invi-
tation of the State executive committee
in 1880 to join in a canvass of the state in
the interest of the Democratic party, but
ran an independent campaign in his own
Last Tuesday he was down in Volusia
county helping Jim Alexander to secure
the nomination for representative. Jim
is Call's private secretary and draws a
salary of 6 per day. In 1884 Jim was an
independent, aud'in 1890 worked to se-
cure the election of independents to the
legi-lature in counties where the regular
candidates were opposed .to the senator,
and it was only natural that Call should
leave Washington and hasten to aid Jim
in Volusia county.
As soon as he saw Jim safely through,
Call comes to Duval to help Barrs and
Stockton nominate their independent
ticket of county officers and the inde-
pendent-delegation to the state conven-
tion. These independents helped Call in
1890, and he is now helping them.
The very day he was in Jacksonville vot-
ing to nominate independent candidates,
the United States senate cuts down the
appropriation for the improvement of
the St. John s river from $150.000 to $120,-
000. Call claims to be looking after the
interest of the people of Florida, but in-
stead of being in his place in the senate
at Washington at this time, he Is here in
Jacksonville working against the Demo-
cratic party.

Looking for Situations.
One of the Melbourne newspapers say
that awhile ago a woman there adver-
tised for two housemaids. The same
day two stylishly dressed young women
were shown into her drawing room, and
.were treated, as callers until they re-
marked that they had come in answer
to the advertisement. They explained
that their father had recently lost his
property, and consequently they found
it necessary to take situations. When
asked if they could wait at table, they
replied, "Well, yes, we can wait, but
we would rather not, as we .might meet
a lot of friends."
How Patti Keeps Young.
Charm of manner and youthful graces
are Patti's chiefest attraction, but she
frankly owns her forty-nine years and
as frankly disclaims the possession of
any secret of eternal youth. Her ex-
planation is, "I keep my temper and
stick to regular hours." And she em-
phatically counsels: "Never lose your
temper. No woman can keep young
who often loses her temper. When I
feel that my temper is getting the bet-
ter of me I always get up and leave the

Women Vhters in Illinois.
School elections were held throughout
Illinois on Saturday, and for the first
time women exercised the right of suf-
frage. They turned out in large num-
bers, and in nearly every instance se-
cured the election of their favorite can-
didates. In several towns a woman's
ticket was in the field against the men's
ticket, and in every case the women
were victorious.-- Chicago Letter.
A Bright Prospect.
There is but one pauper in the town of
Whitneyville, Me., and that one is a fes-
tive widow who looks out for herself
ten months in the year. It is evident
that she will soon be entirely independ-
ent, for her last request of the overseers
read as follows: "Please send me ten
yards of red ribbon and a new dress,
and let the dress be good enough to wear
as a principal at a wedding."
Dressmaking in Public Schools.
The committee on'industrial schools
has recommended that a kitchen be
opened in a south side school and fitted
up for September, 1892, and that the
high school committee, in conjunction

with Miss Ralston and Principal Wood.
take into consideration a system of dress,
cutting and fitting for the high and nor-
mal schools.-Pittsburg Dispatch.
To Cover Defects.
An interesting suggestion is that the
sale of mantles, jackets, cloaks, shawls
and wraps has been large, and as the
long cloaks and mantles now worn
cover up a multitude of defects in the
dresses beneath, the latter have been
made to do extended service.

A Brave Confederate Soldier,
Orlando Sentinel: Such was the man
whom South Florida will present to the
Tampa convention for governor. As a
citizen, soldier, legislator, judge and
statesman, H. L. Mitchell stands pre-em-
inently the peer of all competitors for the
office of governor.e
Many an old Confederate, when his eye
catches a glimpse of this article will re-
member how, in the early part of 1861, 9t
the very first sound of the tocsin of
war, young Mitchell, then a lad, enlisted
at Tampa as lieutenant with Capt. Leslie
in company K, which was mustered in
under their colonel, afterwards Gen. Ed.
Hopkins, of Jacksonville. How, under
the reorganization of the regiment in
1862, Lieut. Mitchell was made captain,
and under Colh Hunt in the Fourth Flor-
ida regiment, they marched to Tennes-
see and there became a part of that great
historic armv which was commanded by
Gens. William Preston and Brecken-
ridge of Kentucky. His gallant com-
rades, whom I now ctll 1to mind, were
Capt. Hagan of Lake City, Capt. Lang-
ford of Lee county, Capt. Lane of Wash-I
ington county, Capt. Oliveros of St.
John's county, Capt. John HEl. Stevens of
Duval county, Major Jacob Lash of Mad-
ison, and that noble, peerless, bravest of
'all soldiers, late Lieut. Smith Pope of
Madison, brother of the distinguished
Frank W. Pope of Jacksonville.
Judge Mitchell also served with Lieut*-
Col. Edward Badger of Marion county,
and Capt. "Buck" Parramore of company
C (now of Orlando), until the latter were
sent to the army of Virginia.
Hundreds of old soldiers, in speaking,
of Judge Mitchell, are heard to say,
"Mitchell! I knew Mitchell! Whye
yes; I knew him in the army of th
Tennessee. He was in many a haid
fought battle, and he was always known
as a good, noble, brave soldier, always at
the front."
What higher encomium can be paid a
man, and who is there o -11 his friends
and acquaintances, since the war, but
can point with pride and admiration to
the record he has made. "
Let %is have Judge Mitchell, Demo-
crats of Florida, for our next governor,
the Republican editor of the Times-
Union co the contrary, notwithstanding.

An 1Unworthy Lochinvar.
Mr. Wood, who resides near Lowes-
ville, is the father of a very handsome
daughter. In the morning this young
lady attended Sunday school at a church
some distance from her home. After
the session the lover of the young lady,
named Campbell, appeared on the scene,
in company with two companions, and
the party started for the nearest railroad
station to take the train for Washing-
ton, where the young couple were to be
married. The prospective bride rode
behind her lover on the same horse.
Thekyoung lady's father heard of the
runaway and, mounting his horse and
arming himself with a Shotgun, gal-
loped in pursuit. He overtook the party
near, Amherst court house and opened
fire. The two companions of the lovers
immediately put spurs to their, horses
and have not been seen since. The other
animal, tired of carrying double, bucked,
and the young lady., losing herseat. fell
to the ground. Her would be husband,!
fearing that he would be riddled with
birdshot, followed his flying chumsn inht
the village of Amherst and sougilit-
shelter behind a rock wall.
He was afterward arrested by the
county authorities and fined $2.50 for'
disturbing the peace. The young lady's
father remounted his horse, took the
young lady up behind him, and placing
his trusty weapon across the pommel of
his saddle returned homeward.-(.;or.

Canine Sagacity.
Mr. O. D. Everson of this place has a
handsome dog that delights in the name
of Bushwhacker, and from all accounts
this same Bushwhacker possesses a won-
derful amount of sagacity.
Mr. Everson's mother resides in Bryn
antville, about eight miles from this
place, and a few weeks ago she was sur-
prised to see Bushwhacker at the door
whining to come in. Upon opening the
door the dog began to bark and appeared
to have something on his mind.
He was told to lie down, but although
he had traveled so far, the dog evidently
preferred to stand up, and not until a
note was found under his collar did
Bushwhacker manifest any desire to
The place where the lady resides is
quite a distance from the postoffice, so

rodents might cross his path when he is
on the road with the mail and his atten-
tion would not be detracted from his

The Ancient Manufacture of Copper.
The ancient Syrians and Phoenicians
are well known to have been active
traders in copper, and they manufac-
tured this metal into bronze by melting
it with tin. Learned antiquaries assure
us that the Phoenicians actually came to
England and to Ireland in search of tin
for this purpose, and a few years ago
some curious bronze articles were found
in several of the old mine workings in,
Cornwall, which are believed to have'
been left there by that ancient people at,
a time when no bronze was either made
or used in England.-Chambers' Jour-
