While the appearance or yellow
fever in the C'ity of Jacksonville in
to be greatly regretted, those who
keep informed of its progress can dis-
cover no cause for alarin in other
places, and little to fear in Jackson-
-iie itself. Only twent-six Wf its
35,000 mnhabitants have been attack-
ed. bIy tho fever, and of these but
four have died. For a full week's

be nominated from Sn'fppoffling factioU.
Air Blitch further took the position that'
no candidate for nomination should be a
member of the executive. committee, for
reason that it would give him an advan-
tage over other candidates and he might
thereby be induced to transcend the bounds
of decorum.
Bat the .committee was elected. Mr.
Carlisle, the grand mogul of Alachua-
county, and four of his bosom friends one,.
being his brother-bn law, compose that
committee. The manner of nominating
the county officers was left for the execu-
tive committee to determine, and it is reas-
onable to suppose, and I do not think they
will deny the fact, that the leading imJ
portant question for them to deteftine
was as to the safest, surest and easiest *
method'to perpetu'te tlie one-man power
that has hitherto existed in this county ;
under the ap~pointive system. And right
anxious were we to find out as to the
method that was to be adopted, knowing
full well that they could take time to de-
liberate, and at the same time so sha
their campaign as to be of great advage
to themselves and their friendsand of a
like disadvantage to their other Demo-
crats who happened t ink that rotation
in office was not Gey Democratic, but just
aud equitable.'
Mr. Calisle, then, and other members of
tbqhiecutive committee, became, as it
,-ere, fathers-of the Democracy of this
county, whose duty it evidently waseto
prevent discoid or disruptiofls in the Dem-
ocratic ranks. How do we find them ? At
Jonesville you hear the Carlisle friends
calling the friends of B. J. Earle Republi-
cans and Independents. (And I might -
add Just here that -to oppose The Carlisle

re willing to have a primary or not, and r
11 for the sake of one man, is not demo- 1
ratio) and in violation of the duties that t
his convention was called to discharge,
the Carlisle faction say that this matter of
nominations must go back to the people,
For any maa to say that the convention
would not nominate a clerk is false. The
G0 stood willing and ready at any time to
nominate any good man. But the 70 said
t must be Carlisle or we will force it
back on the people and make them submit

It is not Mr, Carlisle's ox this time that

hat is goring the people. Will the people
submit ?
The logic is that the people have not got
much sense and the Carlisle faction will
make them believe that it is a great respect
hey are showing them to allow them to
decide this matter -at a primary, when
he truth is, the peome have already held
their primary and elected their delegates to
malk the nominations. J. R. Bevili, G. K
Broome or J, D. Matheson could have
been nominated at any time except for the
opposition of the rule or ruin faction. Any
one of them would have been unsurpassed
as an official.
Mr. Carlisle's friends claim that if he W&
nominated the republicans won't put out a
If the republicans are to dictate to us let

The new constitution conferred the priv-

is in his element. More people have
been reported fleeing the State than
ever lived in it, and while it is true
that many have left, the majority of
them have not gone because of the-
disease per se, but, intending to leave
soon, as they do every season for a
month or two, and not knowing how
extensive the spread of the conta.
gion might be, they have left now to
avoid the vexatious quarantine delays
that might occur later on. Some
have left through fear, of course, but

A special to the Savannah News
from Jacksonville says:
"Gov. Perry is being soundly be-
rated in all quarters for his failure
t last summer to call an extra session,
though petitions were presented ask-
ing him to do so. The blame for
the present situation is all- laid on
him. The feeling is intensified by
his failing to telegraph here to see if
he could aid the people in any way
It is very lucky that he is not on any
ticket for office."

^Dmocratic party, the leading contestant,
aide(d by lbreoother members of the exac-

extraordinary tribunal-the fathers of-the
Democracy of Alachua-they stand for
six days clogging the wheels of Democracy
and jeopardizing the very party they so
mucff love, and whose duty it is to guard
and watch her interests. And for what ? In
the interest of one man, a brother-in-law
and personal friend. Without authority
and without precedent in Florida pollties,
and a clear evasion of the time-honored
Democratic two thirds rule, intended to
prevent the forcing by the majority on the
minority, if it exceed one-third, a candi-

already great breach, 'bey evade their first

main depot for supplies for Abhe peo-

trading is there done with the peo-,
ple from adjoining counties. When
you see a people take a pride in
their county seat, you can put it
down that they are generally pros-,
perous; and this mach may well be
said in favor ot the people of Gaines-
ville and Alachua county.
During our stay in that city it
was our pleasure of meeting Maj. N.
R. Gruelle, and by him were shown
a number of improvements that are
now going on. The most important
work is the building of, the Gaines-

Next Wednesday, Aug. 22, the
Democratic voters of Alachua county
will meet in their several precincts
and by their votes decide who shall
ble the nominees of the party. The
RECORD has taken the stand, with
the people, that rotation in office is
-the eardinjal priuDciple of Dem*

"-s fl~tshat; been made more plain
since the convention, and we,
therefore, advocate Mr. B. J. EArte's
claims to the circuit clerkship. Our
position has not been determined by
any lack of friendship for the pres.
ent incumbent, but by a desire to
continue the perpetuation of Demo-
dratic principles unbroken, one of
these principles being that the poe-
pie are the guardians of their own
rights. The people have said they
were tired of this one man power,
and they can break from it by cast-
ing their ballots on next Wednesday
for B. J. Earle. We hope the Dem-
ocrats of the county Will not be de-
relict in duty, for the nominee must
receive the hearty and undivided
support of the party.

President on the Republican ticket

Besides being the grandson of
President Wm. Henry Harrison, it
is claimed that the Republican Pres-
idential nominee is descended in
some way, we have forgotten how,
from Pocahontas. As the Republi-
cans have failed so signally to get up
a boom for their candidate on the
reputation of his grandfather Har-z
rison, they might try it with some
slight hope ofsuccess on the reputa-
tion of his other illustriousancestor,
Powhatan, who, if he were living

The "official paper" says "all del-

passed in the -convention. Thks is a"
flagrant error. Several delegates ask
cd to have the resolution read again,
as they could not vote understand-
ingly. This'reasonable rvqaest, was
refused. If it had not been so, 59
would have voted with -Mr. Earle

Democrats too. "
That was a feeble effort ma e by
the "official paper" to show Mr.
Earle in a "bad light." In a labored
article only one thing was proven,
and that was well known before and
needed no endorsement from the
"official organ." That was, that

Possum Villa was an unpretentious looking
place with one bow window and a narrow
veranda in front. It was surrounded with
a small garden and a few sparse flowers in it
'which were Mrs. Hableton's delight. When
not otherwise engaged she tied an old hand-
kerchief round her head and went out into
the garden, where she dug and watered her
flowers until they all gave up attempting to
grow from sheer desperation at not being left
alone. She was engaged in her favorite oc-
cupation about a week after her lodger had
disappeared, a shadow fell across the garden,
ahd on looking up she saw a man leaning
over the fence, looking at her.
He was a burly looking man, with a Jovial
red face, clean shaved, and sharp, shrewd
looking gray eyes which kept twinkling like
two stars. He was dressed in a suit of light
-clothes, and wore a stiffly starched white
viwstooatkwith a massive gold chain stretched
across it. Altogether he gave Mrs Hableton
'the impression of being a well to do trades-
w=m, and she mentally wondered what he

The stranger waited placidly during the
outburst, and Mrs. Hableton, having stopped
for want of breath, he interposed quietly:
"Can I speak to you for afew momenta"
"An' w-*o's a stoppin' of youth" said Mrs
Hableton, defiantly.
"Well, really," Mid the other, looklrg up

with a gaudy red silk pocket handkerchief,

"I wonder if he knows anything about this
affair," muttered Gorby to himself. Where
is Mr. Moreland to be found/" he asked
"Not knownn, can't tell," retorted the
landlady; "'eI used to be 'ere regular, but I
ain't seen 'im for over a week."
. "Strange l very I" thotight Gorby, shaking
his head. "t should like 'to w.e this Mr,
Moreland. I suppose it's probable he'll call

"'Abit bein' second nature I s'pnse he
will," answered the woman; 'Ile might call
at any time, mostly 'avir' called at night."
"Ahl then I'll come down this evening on
chance of sweing him," replied the detective.
"Coincidences happen in real life as well as
in novels, and the gentleman in question
may turn up in the nick of time. Now, what
else about Mr. Whyter'
"About two weeks ago, or three, I'm not

"Ahl a morning ceatF'
"No; 'e was in evening' drem, and wore a

"The very man," said the detective below
his breath; "go on."
"He went into Mr. Whyte's' room an' shut
the door. I don't know how long they were
talking' together, but I was sitting' in this very
room and heard their voices git angry, and
they were aewparin' a* one another, which

anything;'an' the other turns, with 'is 'an'
on the door, an' says: 'I can kill you, an' if
you marry 'er I'll do It, even in the open
"Ahl" said Mr. Gorby, drawing a long
breath, "and then?'
"Then he bangs the door to, which it never
shut easy since, an' I ain't got no money to
get it put right, an' Mr. Whyte walks back
his room laughing."
"Did he make any remark to youl'
"No, except he'd been worried by a loona.
"And what was the stranger's name?"
"That I cant tell you, as Mr. Whyte never
told me. He was very tall, with a fair mus-
tache, an'!dressed as I told you."'
Mr. Gorby was satisfied.
"That is the man," he said to himself,
"who got into the hansom cab and murdered
Whyte; there's no doubt of it, Whyte and
he were rivals for the heiress."
"What d'ye think of itF1 said Mrs. Hable-
ton, curiously.
"T think," said Mr. Gorby slowly, with his
eyes fixed on her, "I think that there is a
woman at the bottom of this erima,"
When Mr. Gorby left Possum Villa no
doubt remained in his mind as to who had
committed "the murder. The gentleman in
the light coat had threatened to murder
Whyte, even in the open street-these last
words being especially significant-and there
was no doubt that he had carried out his
threat. What the detective had now to do
was to find-who the gentleman in the light
coat was, where he lived, and,,having found
out these facts, ascertain his doings on the
night of the murder. Mrs. Hableton had de-
scribed him, but was ignorant of his name,
and her very vague description might apply
to dozens of young men in Melbourne. Thore.
was only one person who,',in Mr. Gorby's
opinion, could tell the name of the ge/nttlem
in the'light coat, and that was Mo rtihj,

lent description of the -personal appearne
of the deceased. The only:way ina which
Gorby could account for Moreland's extraor,
diary silence was that he was out of town,
and had neither -seen the papers nor heard
anyone talking- about the murder If this
was the cue he might either- stay away for
an indefinite time or might come back, after a
few days. At all events it w' worth while
goiig down to St. Kilda In the evening on
the chance that Moreland might have re-
turned to town and would call' and see his
friend. So, after his tea, Mr. Gorby put on
his hat and went down to Possum Villa on
what he could not help 4ackiowledging to
himself was a very slender possibility
Mrs. Hableton opened the door for him,
and in silence led the. way into her own
sitting room.
They were barely seated when a knock
came at the front door, loud and decisive, on
hearing which Mrs. Hableton dprang hastily

She went out, and presently.'Gorby, who
was listening Intently, heard .a~ mauls voice
ask ft Mr. Whyte was at home. :-* "'No, sir, he
ain't," answered the landlady, "but there's a
gentleman in bis room iiskin' after 'in.
Won't you come in, sir I"
"For a rest, yea,"' returned the visitor, and
Immediately afterwards -Mrs Hableton ap-
peared, ushering in the late Oliver Whbyte's
most intimate friend. He was a :tail, slender
man, with a pink and white complexiono,
cu'ly fair hair. and a drooping straw :colored
mustache--aitog'ether a strikingly aristo-
eratie individual. He was well-dresed in a
fashionable suit of check, and bhad a cool,
nonchalant air about him. -,
"And where is Mr. W~hyto itonightff he
asked, sinking into a chair, and taking no
more notice of the detective thati if he had

been an article of fi'-niture.
"Haven't you seen '."-" -latelye asked the
detectie.e quickly. Mr. Moreland. tared in
an insolent ma:mner at hbb questioner for a
few moments, as if he were debating ho ad-
visabllity of answering or not At last h4
_ appamently decided that he would, for slowly

looking at the young man before him in a

"I hope," said Moreland, nonealantly. -1

Mr. Gorby came forward and Stood under'
the gaslight. -My name is Gorby, sir, and 1
am a detetive," he wid quietly.
"Ah! indeed," said Moreland, coolylook-
ing him up and down. "What has Whyte
been doing, running away with some one6s
wife, eh| I know he has little weaknesses of
that sort,"
Gorby shook his bead.
"Do you know where Mr. Whyte Is to be

Moreland laughed.

"1 mean that Mr. Oliver Whyte was mur-
dered in u hansom cab."
Moreland stared at the detective In a puz-
zhed Hort of way, and passed his hand across
Ws forehead.
"Excuise me, my bead is In a whirl," be
said, as he sat down again. "Wh)le tour
deredl He was all right when L left him
nearly two weeks ago."
"Haven't you seen the papersar asked
"Not for the last two weeks," replied More&
land. "1 have been up country, and it waR
only on arriving back in town to-night that
1 heard about the murder at all as my land
lady gave me a garbled account of it, huL I
never for a moment conncted it with Whyte.
and came down here to see him. as I bad
agreed to do when I left. Poor fellow l poor
fellow poor fellow" and much overcome,
he buried his face in his hauds.
Mr. Uorby was touched liy his evident dis-
tress, and even Ails Hableton permitted a
small tear to roll down one hard cheek as a
tribute of sorrow and sympathy. Presently
Moreland raised his bead, and spoke to Gorby
in a husky tone.
"Tell me all about it," be said, leaning his
cheek on his hand. "Everything you know."
He placed his elbows on the table, and
buried his face in his hands again, while the
detective sat down and related all that he
knew about Whyte's murder. When it was
done he lifted up his head, and looked sadly
at the detective.
"If 1 had been in town," he said, "this
would not have happened, for I was always
beside Whyte."
"You knew him very well, sirr said the
detective, in a sympathetic tonm.
"We were like brothers, replied More-
land, mournfully. "I came oat from a g-
land in the same steamer with him, Mad uand
to visit him constantly h]arn.__ ....
"Mrs. rHableton',oddeidt-1r hid ft 144Y
that such was the case. ,
"In fact," said Mr. Morenmd, after a mo-
ment's thought, "I believe I wa with him
the night he was murdered."
Mrs. Hableton gave, a slight scream, and
threw her apron over her faee, but the de-
tective sat unmoved, though Moreland'a last
remark had considerably startled him.
"What's the matterr' said Moreland, turn-
ing to Mrs. Hableton. "Don't be afraid; I
didn't kill him; no, but I met him last
Thursday week, and I left for the a.ountry ou
Friday morning at half-pas L6 "
"And what time did you meevt Whyte on
Thursday night?" asked Gorby.
"Let me see," said Moreland, crossing bis
legs and looking thoughtfully up to the ceil-
Ing, "it was about half-past 9 o'clock. 1
was in the Orient hotel, on Bourke atrect.
We had a drink together and then went up
the street to a hotel in Russell street, where
we had another. In fact," msid Moreiand,
coolly, "we had several other drinks."
"Yes," said Gorby, placidly. "Go on."
"WeD of-it's hardly the thing to conass

door in Bourke street with the coat in my
hand. Then some one came up, and, snateb-
ing the coat out of my band, made off with
it, and the last thing I remember was shout,
ing out, 'Stop, thief' Then I must have
fallen down, for next meaning I was in bed

"Whatwas the cause of his being put out?"
Moreland aroee, and, going to a side table,
brought Whyte's album, which he laid an the
table and opened in silence. The contents
were very much the same as the photographs

"That was the cause," be aid.
It was the portrait of a charmingly pretty
girl, dressed in white, with a "soier hat on
her fair hair, and holding a lawn tenisu
racket. She was bending half forward, with
a winning smile, and In the background was
a mass of some tropical plants. Mrs Hable,
ton gatve a cry of surprise at seeing this.
"Why, it's Miss Prettiby," she said. How
did he know her?"
"Knew her father--hitters of Introduction,
and all that sort of thing." said Mr. More-
land, glibly.
"Ah, indeed?" said Mr. Gorby slowly.
"So-Mr. Whyte knew Mark Prettlby, the
millionaire; but how-did be obtain a photo

"She gave it to him," said Morelandt
"The fact is, Whyte was very much in lov
with Miss Prettiby."
"And she"-- -.

"Yes, she loved a Mr. Brian Fitzgerald

The Citizens to Act With the Boa.'d ol
A meeting of the citizens of Gainesville.
was held at Armory Hall yesterday at 11
o'clock. W. G. Robinson was elecieq
chairman and H. L. Weller secretary.
Mr. Weller stated that the meeting hadl
been called at the instance of the Board
of 11ealth, and that owing to the great
amount of labor dependent upon that
board, be advised that the citizens lenol
their aid by forming themselves into .at
auxiliary society.
This was generally agreed to and spoken
upon by Marcus Endel and others.
Mr. Voyle said that now Gainesville was
the only outlet for Cuba and all South
Florida and as we could not, if we would,
stop freight and mails from passing
through, we might get Oliver Park to be
used as a place of detention for travelers,
in case the trains did not make close con-
nections. The park is pleasantly situated,
and those detained would be comfortable.
Mr. Sanchez said the roads should be
requested to make the closest possible
connection, and it was learned that Mr.

communicated with on this subject. i

-Six times the space that measures.day
and night the convention sat, sweating,
seething, boiling, at no small sacrifice of
time, money and muscle. But a crisis was
approaching. The convention was near-
Ing a precipice, and down it went, we
much fear, with hideous ruin. The
side of the majority had prepared a pre-
amble and a resolution recommending re-
manding the nomination of cleik to-the
people'by primary election. That paper
provided only for the simple office of
dlerk, and so placing a stress and an im-
portance upon it abnormal,- inconsistent
and without precedent. The motion was
finally put, the majority voting as a unit
fot and the minority as a unit against it.
All the other offices were rapidly placed in
the same category by the same vote, the
minority protesting against it, first,
because, the convention had a certain
trust to perform, delegated to them by the
people, viz- to make nominations for the
several offices. Secondly, because the
question'of primary election *had never
been submitted to, or adopted by the peo-
ple of Alachua county, and there might
not be any election at all, and certainly if
held it would be contrary to all usage or
precedent. No provisions or machinery
had been provided. And thirdly, it might
have gone oni to represent, that what con-
stituted a, primary nomination 'had not
been settled-whether plurality, or ma-
jority, the time recommended was short,
no proper committee chosen', no managers
selected, no rules made, no laws and by-
laws as to the manner of holding the elec-
tion, or as to qualification of voters, with
other objections set.forth, constituting so
great and many- difficulties, as to m,, k
the proposition of relegating the eltcliin
to the people in such a way and on such
short notice;' wholly impracticable,
unjust and undemocratic. With such
showing we leave our conduct to be Dass-
ed upon by the whole people, and only
add, "Delenda est Carthago."

Editor RECORD :
A proper r-sprct for lhe opinions of our
fellow citizens uf Alachua county and IV *
country at large moves that portion of the
delegation known as the Earle taction in
the late memorable convention held in the
city of Gainesville to set forth the reasoui
that actuated their conduct ; and in order
that a clear perception may be t,1 of the
true Fituation, we make the following
synopsis, which We believe to be a fair and
impartial statement, viz ;
That the face of the returns, prima fa-
cie, gave Mr. Carlisle 65 and Mr. Eat- 65
of the 130 delegates composing the entire
convention. When the delegations had
assembled in the place of business, and
pending the .temporary organization, the
question as to the rights of contested dele-
gations was sprung. The position was taken
by several delegates of what was after-
wards known as the Earle faction, that
delegates holding first certificates, regular-
ly and properly certified by their respec-
tive chairmen, were entitled to seats on
the floor and to take a part in the tempo
rary organization, after which contests
might be made. This construction was
very strongly urged before the chairman
(Mr.. Carlisle) of the county democracy,
and without the least show of reluctance
he decided adversely as to the claim, and
so, upon his ipse dixit, in his own interest
-gave his fohelig 1 thotascenden4y in the
temporary organization, which otherwise
would have exactly equalized the facitons,
giving 65 to each, and resulted in the elec-
tion of a non-partisan to the chairmanship.
This advantage having been gained, the
convention was organized under these
auspices. The first business before ,the
convention thus constituted was the ap-
polntment or selection of a committee to
examine and report upon the cases of con-
test. A motion looking solely to expedit-
ing said business was made to have the
chairman appoint three representatives
from each faction on that committee, but
a substitute was offered and carried that
each delegation be allowed to select their
own committeeman, as according to cus-
tom and predicated thereon (but whether
well taken or not the sooner abolished the
better as having no foundation in right or
reason). The committee thus made up
consisted of 11 Carlisle and 6 Earle dele-
gates, and so made up presenting a very
severely ex parte complexion. The re-
sult of their findings could well nearly be
anticipated. First in order came the
Franlland contest. Two sets of creden-
tials were produced, attested by the same
chairman, certifying to the election of each
set of delegates, the first being.Earle dele-
gates, these having two weeks priority.
The Carlisle delegates presented certificates
from the same chairman, setting forth the
fact that although delegates at the first
meeting had been elected; that all the
voters-had not been notified, that the-spe-
cific object of the first meeting was the
organization of a democratic club and that
the second was more larIely attended.
With such evidence before, them the com-
mittee, tocarry out the apparent popular
wi!l, admitted the Carlisle delegates to
seats with out protest (after developments,
however, completely changed the opinion
of the minority, at least). -
The Jonesvllle contest was predicatedi
upon the assertion and assumption that the
seceding minority was made of better dem-
ocratic material than the majority, and
in the face of the call of the county chair-
man inviting all 'the conservative ele-
ment of the county to participate in the
election claimed upon this single ground
the right to be seated. The, Earle

tuning the majority and the victors mag-
nanimously acceding to the vanquished an
equal number of delegates. A. meeting
was called, largely attended, sixty being
present, organized, a permanent chairman
elected, a unanimous vote had for holding
an election for delegates, and -without any
formal adjournment it burst *sunder, dis
persed in groups, reassembl.g again in
half an hour--at least a respectable minor-
ity did so--at the same place of meeting,
went into an election and, as stated above,
generously divided the delegation. The
next day another meeting assembled, con-
sisting of 16 or 18 voters, and elected Car-
lisle delegates, The committee of the mi-
nority, with a spirit rising above partyism,
consented to the seating of the Carlisle del-
egates, yielding~the more readily because
of the threat, in terrorem, to open anew the
Jonesville contest.
The above "results being communicated

to the convention and, acted upon, the
status of each faction was unalterably
fixed, ever afterwards standing 60 to 70.
Just at this stage of the proceedings au
effort was made to institute an inquiry as
to Oalnesville's right to 23 delegates Instead
of1T, fnd whether the point was well
made or not, or unparliamentary, the
chairman ruled peremptorily that the mo-
tion wai out of order, and. so leaving a
lingering doubt in the minds of many who
had no opportunity of knowing the cer-
tainty. Pending the preliminary discus-
sion of organization Mr. Earle proposed to
withdraw from the race if Mr. Carlisle
would do likewise. This step Mr. Car-,
lisle declined to take, assigning as the
reason for destination that the proposal
was premature, and as we progress we
shall find that it constantly grew more
premature. ,
Nominations being in order, Messrs.
Carlisle and Earle were put in nomination,
each receiving the full strength of his re-
spective following, the vote standing 70 to
60, and so continuing to stand through the
remaining five days of the convention,
until some !U9 votes had been cast. In
the mean time adjournment after adjourn-
ment had been had, committee after com-
mittee of conference appointed, proposi-
tion after proposition made to no purpose;
time was vainly thrown away. One ob-
stacle, and only one, stood in the way to
the Wpeedy consummation, of the whole,
'business before the body, which was Mr.
Carlisle's withdrawal from candidacy for
the clerkship. This he refused to do, first,
last and all through. No influence brought
to bear, no inducement offered, no inter-
cession or persuasion of friends, no argu-
ment, no representation of peril to party,

Now that the citizens have united with
