Co). John H, Deveaux, Business
J/anasrer of the Tribune left for Chi

A fourteen pound boy was the new
arrival at Mr. A. E. Robinson's resi

Henry Williams, an aged colored
man, dropped dead while working on
his little farm in East Savannah on
Tuesday last. The cause of his sudden
death was evidently from heart disease.
It is "aid that a certain school teach
er offered a prize to the scholar who
would come to school the next day with
the cleanest face, The result was that
he was unable to recognize some of
them next day.
The many friends of Col. Nat D.
Sneed will be pleased to learn that he
hn« entered the ministry, and has ac
cepted a call at Hazlehurst, Miss. Those
who have heard ‘Nat” say “that he is
an eloquent and earnest exhorter.”
Rev. J. H. L. Cooper, of the M. E
church will open a school on July Ist
for the education of young colored men.
The Reverend has leased a suitable
building for that purpose on Gwinnett
St-, near Asbury church.
L. B. Toomer Esq., will deliver a Ma
sonic Address on Saturday next before
Mt. Tabor Lodge, Valdosta. The event
being the celebration of St. John’s day,
from one of the hand bills before us, it
appears that great preparations are be
ing made for the occasion.
ST BENEDICT’S CONCERT.
The concert at the Ford’s Opera
House, on Tuesday evening last for the
benefit of the St. Benedict’s Church
and Orphanage was a most gratifying
success to its promoters. program
as published in our last issue was gone
through with in a most creditable man
ner as testified to by the manifestation
of appreciation shown by the fine audi
ence present. The pieces were all so
finely rendered as to make it im
possible to point out the most
excellent. After the concert, refresh
ments were served, and a very neat sum
realized. The good people of Savannah
never fail to respond to a*y well deserv
James Brown (colored) was shot and in
stantly killed on Monday night iast, near
the corner of Sims and Lumber Sts., by po
liceman Cronin. It seems that the officer
attempted to arrest Brown, when a 8< tiffie
ensued between the prisoner and the officer.
Brown succeeded in getting away, and was
running from the officer when the fatal shot
was fired that caused his death. The locali
ty is said to be a noisy one, and the officers
of the law have a hard time to preserve
quietness, It is certainly a horrible thing to
contemplate that a policeman would delibe
rately shoot down a man who was trying to
escape arrest, and especially so when his
own life was In no danger. An officer of
the law is in no case justified in shooting a
naan except to save his own life, and possi
bly to prevent the ercape of a person guilty
of a fel nv. The idea of ar officer killing a
man who was trying to escape arrest, even if
he had been assaulted, is according to the
understanding of the law, murder. Will our
fearless solicitor-general have the matter in
vestigated ? He has the courage, if he h a
the inclination to do so.
Red Tape With a Vengeance.
One poor soul has probably been sent
to his grave because of official red tape.
On Friday of last woek, T. T. Senders,
Esq., discovered a colored man lying on
Waters Road in an unconscious condi
tion. He, in company with Prof. S. B.
Morse who has a farm in that locality,
had the man placed iu a wagon, the
professor giving the wagoner a note to
present at the Georgia Infirmary, The
unfortunate sufferer was refused admis
sion, and the wagoner was told to go to
Dr. Myers, as the man could not be ad
mitted without a permit, and he was
consequently driven in the hot sun back
into the city in search of the doctor
After considerable delay, the papers
were obtained, and the sick man taken
back to the Infirmary, but to die in a
very short time after being admitted.
If the man could have received proper
attention when first taken to the Infir
mary, it is not improbable that he
would have been alive to-day. The
name of the victim of this cruel red
tape requirement is unknown. V hose
duty is it to inquire into this matter ?
Let it be investigated.
The colored people have found a true
history of themselves. It is written by
W. T. Alexander, of Philadelphia, and
gives their history in this country as
well as their ancient ani modern life in
Africa. Don’t fail to look at the book
when the agent comes around, an J give

FCI’KD IN A VAULT,
Thomas White, colored, from Chari*s
1 ton, 8.C., was found in a sink at 99j
Montgomery St., on Thursday morning
with several gashes about his body, and
when rescued from his unenviable posi
tion, lived but an hour. It seems that
White came to the city about a month
ago in search of work —being a tinner
by trade—and secured board with Mr.
Albert Wylly, one of our most respecta
ble citizens- In the meantime, White
took sick, Dr. Weichselbaum was call
ed in, and he prescribed for him, Mr.
Wylly, on account of the poverty of the
patient, paying for the medicine. On
Wednesday night. White became worse,
and at times delirious, requiring two or
more of his friends to hold him down.
He finally fell asleep, and the occupants
of the house all retired. Early Thurs
day morning, he was missed from his
room, and on search being made, was
found in a nuda condition as above sta
ted. The opinion of the coroner and
the attending physician is, that it is the
act of a suicide caused when in a deliri
ous state His remains were properly
taken care of, and shipped to his home
in Charleston, S. C;

Midnight Thoughts toy Prof M.
Alma Matfs Cott,rar,
“Mothe: s unv-.-ring with the Dead.”
Dear mother y u bade me years ago
not to leave thy tender bosom while hi
earth thou lived but dear mother can I
confess to a heap of dust that I did the
wrong—l brought thee to thy grave
with a broken heart tbinkiig of me
when I was rejoicing and living with a
heart at esse—thou was in the valley
heartbroken. Mother I can never con.
fess my wrongs to thee—human tongue
can never confess our wrongs to the
living or dead. I dreamt of thee last
night mother but thou art dead and
gone. Mother, mother whirl the news
back to me from the lofty sky to thy son
of that shining shore of time. I have
wronged thee dear mother from my
heart, but hush be silent methink I
hear her lovely voice crying to me now
—too late, too late thou lament when
the grass is growing over my grave.
Oh could I but see mother once again
and grasp her tender hand once more;
how my heart would rejoice; how lonely
how sad, how drearful is my ]ot. Dear
mother is dead and srone cross Jordan’s
cold and stormy road to the other land
of bliss. Oh what an hour of medita
tion, an hour of prayer, a sad hour of
loneliness, a time of dispair. Dark and
gloomy seems the way thus to the grave
sleep there dear mother and take your
rest for I hope to meet you by and by.—
