Business Like. A candidato for

nay the least, before the people in a
business like attitude. He is solid on
the division of the county. He is
pledged to an appropriation for a light

hold, though, is a promise that he will
sell his vote for U. S. Senator and give
seventy five per cent of the proceeds to
his county. Good square candidate,
The Mite Socir.Tr. The social gath

A Proper Growl As an evidence
of the slip-shod and shiftless manner
of road making, under our present road
law, we have oi.ly to call attention to
the Herrin Lane. That thoroughfare
was gravelel quite well, at a heavy
outlay, three years since, and to-day,
through neglect, it is worse than it
has been for sixteen years. The trav
el naturally worked deep ruts in the
gravel nud, when rain settled in them,
the wheels broke through the thin crust
to tho softened ground underneath,
making tho road worse than it ever
lia been Had the displaced gravel
been raked into the ruts, beforo the
rainy season, there would have been
no cause of complaint but the care of
the road after it was graveled, seems
to be nobody's business. If it was tho
supervisor's ho ought to be fined for
neglecting it or show good cause why
it was not done.
A Little Breeze. On Wednesday
night the Marshal put in an appear
ance at Holt's hall and demanded 65
licenso for the church entertainment
nnd Madam Holt dared him to close
the doors, as he threatened to, and the
result was an unpleasant scene. Mr.
Lion ended the trouble by standing
security for the license. This is the
first time we ever heard of a tax being
imposed on any performance given
solely for a religious or charitable pur
pose, and we doubt very much if those
who framed tho ordinance intended it
to have bo wide a scope. It is so in
terpreted, however, and no fault was
found with its collection, but thero is a
lust complaint that no public enter
tainment or meeting of any kind is
lurnished the protection of" an officer
nfter paying all that is demanded. The
Marshal is prompt enough to appear at
the door and demand the license; but
takes good care to make himself very
scarco afterward. Ruffianism and dis
order at places of public amusement,
in Jacksonville, are proverbial but on
Wednesday night it was intolerable
and is condemned by nine tenths of
those present. Yells, groans and "cat
calls" may be well enough on tho
street but, when directed at performers
who give, their time gratuitously for
the public pleasure, and in tho presence
of ladies, it shows a degree of hoodlum
ism and indecency that ought to at
tract tho attention of the city govern
ment. The two worst offenders were
a young man here and ono living a
couple of miles in the country both
intoxicated, and if they repeat their
misconduct they may expect prosecu
tion. We have only to add that; if in
the future, there is not some good as
hurance that order will be maintained,
and ruffians and disturbers be prompt
ly fired out, similar entertainments will
Ye very slimly attended, and these kind
enough to give their talents for noth
ing will hardly care to be exposed to

In conformity with law a license fee

Treasury for Mr. Hill's lecture, in the

exception of an entertainment for the
furtherance of religion, benevolence or
public morals and where the perform

is said that tho Trustees intend to re

from a conviction that the letter and
spirit of the ordinance are wrong and
against common usage and public pol

The Coxcert. The entertainment
for the benefit of the Church. iven bv
our local talent, on Wednesday eve
ning, was fully up to the standard of
expectation. The programme was scru
pulously carried out and each and every
performer did themselves credit. We
have not space to particularize or tell
of the many choice gems of song and
recitation and will only remark; that
so far as the performance itself was
concerned, the audience was delighted,
mauy appearing to think they really
received more than the'worth of their
money. The receipts of the evening
were 44, for which tho managers re
turn thanks to the public. Miss Sallie
Cardwell and Miss Maggie Linn, the
young lady managers, deserve praise
for their excellent programme and well
directed efforts to provide a pleasant
TnE Right Spirit. In every por
tion of the'Roguo river valley, farmers
are straining every nerve to put in a
large crop, and every thing shows that
there will be fifty per cent more acre
age sown than has been any season
since its settlement. Some are putting
in every available acre in various kinds
of grain, in anticipation of a large de
mand during the period of railroad
construction and, even with this extra
ordinary effort, there will be no sur
plus next year if the work is pushed as
the railroad managers sav it will be.
This is the right kind of spirit and
shows that our people are generally
wide awake to the advantage of havin"
something to sell when a market offers!
