Hug Sport on the Halifax.
A uarty of hunters on the Halifa
river north of Daytona Beach killed
a huge bar last week that had been
eagerly sought for the past five sea-
On a previous hunt this bear killed
five valuable dogs and seriously crip-
pled two others, and was itself shot
several times. It has killed at vari-
os times many hogs near Harwood
station, and~ while often seen and at-
taked by hunters it has managed to
mesape until last week, when it was
killed by John Roberts, who has a-
ompanied nearly every party hunt-
ing it for the past few years.
When the last hunt started it was
a merry party. Mr. Guy, proprietor
of the Colonnades hotel at Seabreeze,
and Mr. Holmes were there in their
big automobiles. The dogs were
turned loose and old Bruin slipped
out and took a run down just back
of the beach where no bear wasever
known to run before, but John Rob-
erts and Bob Rawlings soon caught
on to this new trick and pressed her
so hard that she was compelled to
run over two hunters, who explained
that had they shot they might have
hit each other.
A drenching rain sent the party to
camp soon after, and the day's hunt
was over. The sun failed to show up
next morning but the chase was
again on, when, during the worst
rain of the day the bear came sneak-
ing along two miles ahead of the
dogs when he was fired on by Mr.
Roberts at a distance of 150 yards
and brought to earth.
Roberts almost wept when he dis-
covered he had killed the old stand-
by, saying, "Why, I've had more
fun hunting that bear for the past
five years than with all I have ever
killed." The peninsula opposite Ti-
tusville can supply you with numer-
ous others, Mr. Roberts.

Titusville High School Opens
Titusville High school opened Mon-
day with an unusually large attend-
ance. The corps of teachers this
year is as follows: Principal, Prof.
S. J. Overstreet; first assistant, Miss
Helen Miller; second amistant, Miss
Jean Waldron; with Miss Susie Tee-
ter and Miss L. P. Grace in charge
of the primary department.
Prof. Overstreet, Miss Miller and
Miss Teeter gave such excellent ser-
vice as teachers in this school last
year that they were recalled by
unanimous consent of the patrons
and school board, while Miss Wal-
dron and Miss Grace come to us
highly recommended. We predict
that this will be a banner year for
the Titusville High school.

NIGHT RIDER REGULATIONS.
Kentucky Town's Novel Cede For Use
In Case of Attaek.
Following are the regulations for
public safety recently passed by the
city council at Murray, Ky, the hot-
bed of the Night Rider district:
First.-Fire signal: Blowing of whis-
ties and ringing of bells, together with
loud calls from those who are awake.
Second.-All those who are able to
fight fire on hearing the above signals
will come promptly to the fire.
Third.-If the firing of guns is heard
hereafter, all persons will stay in their
houses, as this will mean that a fight
is on between the state guards and
the Night Riders.
Fourth.-ln case of such an Invasion
the citizen can shoot from his home if
he is positive his mark is a Night
Rider and not a citizen or member of
the state guards.
Fifth.-These regulations are made
necessary for the reason that there is
grave danger of some one being killed
when promiscuous shooting Is allowed.
Sixth.--This being so. from this on
those who shoot to give signal will be
tldeemled guilty of a misdemeanor and
will th dealt with accordingly.
Seventh. -Any citizen can ring any
bell or blow any whlitle to arouse the
people, but not tire any gun to give an
Eighth.- In view of recent fires It
has becoume necessary to enforce the
ordinance now in existence requiring
all ImUrsons found on the streets after

SObstructed by Bank Cave-In.
Word was brought to St. Augus-
Stine the first of the week to the effect
that the canal has been blocked to
Savigation some fil miles south of
S*Summer Haven, a large section of
embankment having caved in and
flled the stream soas to obstruct the
S* pIamge of boats. The cave-in, it is
sid, was due to the recent heavy
rain draining from the higher lands
& and iruahing with terrific force and
ip great volume to the canal, under-
Smining the bank at the place the
a nve-in occurred. The full extent
of the damage has not yet been
learne6Mat the rort says that
discussion and general investigation now in progress.
Varied plans are offered as a solution of this vexed
problem. One county favors the lease system because the
convicts there are well cared for by the lessees and the
money consideration is regarded paramount, the claim be-
ing made that counties do not work the men to the best
advantage, and that from a financial standpoint the county
is the loser.
Some counties utilize.the convicts on their road work
and regard the labor as being cheaper than free labor.
There is little doubt but the handling of the convicts
by the counties, while it may not be as great a success from
a financial standpoint, it is the real humanitarian view of
the question. Sub-leasing, in any way, should be done
away with entirely. The lessees must pay less than the la-
bor is worth as they are bound to make a profit otherwise
they would not be in the business. The counties should
be able to utilize the labor as effectively as a contractor, in
that way it would save the profits that now go to the lessees.
Under the present lease system the convict passes
through so many hands that the last lessee is forced to work
him almost to death in order to regain the price paid for
As long as there is public work to be done, such as
building and keeping up the roads, we fail to see where
there is any economy in leasing convicts to competing con-
tractors and then hiring free labor to do the public work.
COMMITTEES AND COURTS
Judge Wolfe, of Pensacola, has decided that our courts
have no proper jurisdiction over disputes arising from ac-
tion of political committees or similar bodies.
We think he is quite correct. There really can be no
jurisdiction outside of the authorities of the party adminis-
tration involved except the present primary law be amend-
ed. We refer more particularly to the Mays-Kehoe con-
tested primary nomination for congress in this state.
Judge Malone, however, entertained an appeal from
the decision of the congressional committee and then over-
turned that decision.
It seems that if a candidate is aggrieved by the action
of party authorities his recourse is by an appeal to his con-
stituents, who are the supreme authority in the case.
In the matter of declaring the returns of a primary
election, the committee canvassing is the only authority,
under the interpretation of our law as at present, to decide
upon disputed questions, and it is perhaps best that our
courts should not be called upon to decide matters of this

THE FISH LAW IS DEFECTIVE
The Jacksonville Times-Union has taken up the cud-
gel in defense of the fish of this state and starts up with the
following prefatory remarks: "Unless the laws to protect
the fish can be enforced we shall be obliged to forbid the
shipping of fish outside the state. The fishermen can take
their choice-having pelted them with turf we shall be
obliged to use stones to get them out of the tree from which
they hurl defiance at the law. It is not safe to trifle too
long with one of the greatest interests of all the people as
contrasted with the passing profit of a few." The Times-
Union evidently is not aware of the fact that the law against
seining is a dead letter and that seining is being followed
up by some with the disapproval of most of those who are
in the fishing business. The sheriff is consequently pow-
erless to stop this wholesale capture, which is successfully
carried on in the daytime, while gill net fishing is accom-
plished at night time. The law must first be corrected,
then it will be time enough to pick up the officers if they
fail in the discharge of their duty.
Prices of lumber have already advanced above what
they were a short time ago and sawmill men are expecting
soon to be able to set their own priceson lumber. A meet-

cuss the situation in this state and they may agree upon a

u& th fir flst trip in the new
-nah Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Cope-
lad and children went with them
oamnd the island to Oceanus, where
thy will camp for a couple of weeks.
Lat Sunday morning as Mr. Hall
wa'on his way to Cocoa with the
Lmas the. rudder post broke short off
ad in such shape a to make it im-
poible to rig any afe way ofsteer-
ing the boat. Mr. Hall was com-
pelled to give up the trip and make
is way backs well as e could. It
was late when he got in and the word
came to the people who were waiting
at the Munson dock to take the boat
for Melbourne, where especial ser-
vices for quartely meeting had been
planned. As we have no telephone
there was no way possible of getting
word to those at Rokledge and lower
down on the island. At Eau Gallie
quite a crowd waited on the dock.un-
til after 10 a. m., when they gave up
hope of any large boat coming and as
many as could went down in small
boats and by teams. Mr. C. D. Pro-
vost very kindly gave the use of his
launch and Mr. Rufus Coleman was
so kind as to run the boat, so a part
of the Georgiana crowd got there
after all. Though late in starting
we arrived in time for most of the
morning service, and enjoyed most
delightful day. Dinner was furnished
by the Melbourne and Eau Gallie
people and was spread on tables be-
neath the trees in -the yard of Mrs.
Williams, near the church. The ta-
bles wereloaded with good things,
and there was welcome for all. The
afternoon service came immediately
after the dinner and the elder gave
us another good sermon. The music
at both services was an especial treat,
with Mr. Stewart at the organ and
the Rhoades band assisting thechoir.
We certainly hope to go again and
take the rest of the crowd next time.
