THREE SCORE OF YEARS, i
THE BAPTIST SUNDAY SCHOOL’S j
Flowers, Songs and Speeches Mark
the Event—Superintendent West’s
Report—What the School Accom
plished Last Year—Dr. Lathrop’s Ad
dress- The First Sunday School in
The Sunday school of tho Savannah Bap
tist church celebrated last night the comple
tion of three score years of life. Paradoxi
cal as it sounds, the Sunday school seems to
grow younger as it grows older. In other
wonts it is year by year increasing its roll
and becoming more vigorous. Last, night
the church was thronged.
The floral decorations were exquisite and
filled the auditorium with a sweet odor.
The principal design was a bank of moss on
the platform. A beautiful cross of white
roses, anchors, wreaths and stars studded
the bank, which was surmounted by a
crown. At the base of tho bank were the
numerals “60.” in red roses. Beautiful ealia
lilies, baskets of fragrant roses and pretty
grasses adorned the front of the pulpit, anil
other baskets of moss and flowers were sus
pended from the chandeliers.
After two hymns by the school, tho in
fant class sang and then followed reading of
the Scriptures. Mr. C. W. West, the super
intendent, in his repoi't said:
“Children, flowers, music, each one so
fully represented here to-night, and all to
gether, forming a text from which to draw
thoughts and suggestions appropriate to
this pleasant occasion. As we complete an
other decade vre very naturally take views
ill prospective and retrospective, as a
iter has ingeniously expressed it:
“We sit in the swing of thought,
And gently to and fro.
Swing first to the future,
Down to the now: then
Back to the long ago.”
• “Contrasting the present flourishing con
dition of the Sunday school throughout tue
world with its feeble beginning, what pros
perity may vve not expect in the future;
While the Sunday school is not intended to
take the pine * of home religious instruction,
yet many children receive their only roii
pious training by it. This but increases
“Some of the mast thoughtful students
and authors of the day have recently called
attention to dangers' which threaten our
Country; those to which the generation now
passing away may not be exposed, but to
which those who are now children in our
Schools may be subjected. Emigration from
Europe to this country has regularly and
largely increased, and now flows through
this Eastern section like a mighty river to
the great West, where it empties itself. In
fidelity in its many forms is brought here
by those who come to make this their future
Home—by actions and teachings also they
foster a disregard for the Sabbath, a tenden
cy to make it a day focj'ecreation, giving to
Worldly pleasure time which should bo sot
apart for worship.
“How can we best guard against this spread
ing of error? As members of Sunday schools,
I think our duty is plain. AVe should teach
those who are entrusted to us that the only
safe course is to stand by the old Bible land
marks, to lie clothed with Christian armor,
protected by the shield of faith and armed
with the sword of the Spirit.
“Our minutes show the present number of
Dur school to be: Officers and teachers, :Mi;
scholars, 140: Bible classes, >; primary
department, 109—total, 805.
'“Our collections amount to, in school and
Bible classes, $152 66; in pi imary department,

“The primary department, in charge of
Mrs. Baker and Min. Wray,regularly carries
on a missionary and benevolent work, rais
ing funds both for home and foreign use,
and contributing largely to the wants of
thuir own needy members.
“With pleasure do we regard that twenty
Scholars have within tho year past united
with the church. Our sessions have been
hold without interruption; the punctuality
of tho teachers has caused like promptness on
the part of the classes, and to the regularity
of both it is my pleasant duty to also say
that, the harmony still exists which I have
nlways observed during the ten years that
I have served as your superintendent.
“It is pleasant to observe the kind regard
and loving attachment of even the smallest,
Scholars to our pastor, who is always at
home in any part of the school. May tho
love of the Ir. autiful in nature, as with each
returning spring the flowers come to point
us to their Creator and ours, cause our
-hearts to beat in sympathy with those who
Bing to-night, and our voices to join in songs
of adoration and love to Him who sends
those blessings and accepts the tributes <>f
praise in winch voices give expression to the
feelings of our hearts.”
The song, “He will Hear and Answer
Prayer,” was followed by an interesting ad
dress by Rov. Dr. Lathrop, who is filling
Dr. Holmes’ pulpit while ho is away. Dr.
Lathrop in Ins address sketched the origin
and growth of Sunday schools in Savannah.
The first one. he said, that was organized in
this city was known as tile Union Sunday
School and it met in the old Solomon’s Lodge
building. Tlrnt was in Is 15. It was storied
by members of the different evangelical
churches in Savannah, and was conducted
at first, by Rev. George White, a member of
the Methodist church at that time, but later
In those days Sunday schools were iinpor
taut factors in the education of the boys and
girls. The speaker mentioned the names of
several of the active members of the old
Sunday school, ’ among them iioing Jo.mli
Pentiefd, Joseph Cummins, and Charles Mc-
Intyre. From that Sunday school sprang
the Yamacmw Sunday school, led mainly
by members of the Baptist church. The
Savannah Baptist Sunday school was or
ganized in 1627, on tho site of the present
First African Baptist church. Rev. Robert
Brown, pastor of the church, was at its
In tlitise days there were no libraries of
consequence, and the. children were required
to committ passages from Scripture, u
practice which the speaker commended to
tlx 1 teachers present. *
The pleasant exercises concluded with the
hymn, “The Golden Land" and the benedic

“OLD SPOT” LAID TO REST.
Tho Biography of Gon. Kilpatrick’s
Famous War Horse.
“Old Spot,” Gen. Kilpatrick’s famous war 1
horse, died last week at Deckertown, N. J.,
of old age, and was buried with military
honors on tho Kilpatrick homestead near
“Old Spot’s" history has been oft written.
He is credited with having passed un
scathed through all the battles fought by
the army of the Potomac, and to have
marched with Sherman to the sen. His
latest biographer says that his exact ago
and pedigree are unknown, but that, lie is be
lieved to have been of Arabian extraction
an>l about 30 years old. At the time of his
deatli lie was the oldest horse known to have
been used by any General in the
war. In his will Gen. Kil
patrick ordered that “Old Spot”
should be kept on the homestead and cared
for until his death. The General’s executors
refused many tempting offers for the old
horse from parties desiring him for exhibi
Bo much of fiction ha* been woven into
the history of “Old Spot's” life that his true
origin has almost been kmt sight of. Tin
fact is “Spot" was in none of the battles of
tho Potomac, and he was never on Northern
soil until the close of the war. Instead of
“marching with Sherman to the sea,” he
0111 v marched with Sherman from the sea.
The widow of the late Dr. .T, R. Johnson,
who was a well-known physician in Bryan
county twenty years ago, is now a resident
of this city. W hen Sherman arrived at tho
sea Mrs. Johnson and her husband resided
upon their plantation at Bryan Neck, be
tween Medway and Bear rivers. This is
the identical spot from which Sherman sig
naled the Federal fleet with bonfires and the
firing of cannon. Upon his arrival there
Gen. Kilpatrick occupied the Johnson resi
d< nee 11s his headquarters. The doctor was
a wealthy gentleman and a successful
farmer as well as physician,
and the plantation was well stocked
with cattle, hogs and horses. It was here
that Gen. Kilpatrick first beheld his “fam
ous war horse,” then without a name. I)r.
Johnson had bought tho horse from a mem
ber of McAllister's battalion, then stationed
at flic.“Neck.” and his remarkable color,
combined with bis admirable qualities, gave
him notoriety and high value in the estima
tion of his new master. It was not strange,
therefore, that Gen. Kilpatrick should have
chosen this gallant stood to bear him on his
Mrs. Johnson describes the horse as a
light cream colored stallion, thickly dotted
over with small, brown spots, prominent
eyes and scant, short mane.
“Spot,” for that wa* the name
given him by Gen. Kilpatrick, did not
long remain in the possession of the gallant
Federal General, lie was captured by But
ler’s cavalry near Fayetteville, N. C., in the
little surprise liygi whioh Kilpatrick escaped
in his drawey*ana night shirt.twn weeks be
fore the surt'endor at Greensboro.
A lptrfnlier of Cobb’s Legion, who took
the horse from one of Gen, Kilpatrick’s staff,
was riding the animal at. Greensboro, when
his former owner recognized him and offered
two other fine horses for him. The “swap”
was made, and alter the surrender Kilpat
rick took “Spot” North with him. His last,
public appenrftr.ee was at Port Jervis, N. V.,
where he was n leading figure in a Fourth of
July celebration a year ago.

How the Jurors in the Fogarty Case
Pass the Time- No Verdict Yot.
Tiie bulletin issued at midnight by the
Deputy Sheriffs in charge of the Fogarty
jurors set forth that they were sleeping
soundly with pulse, respiration and temper
ature normal. Their appetite has improved
since their incarceration, but as yet they are
allowed only two meals a day. That is
about all they are allowed, except, to sit in
the windows and watch people go by. They
amused themselves yesterday by guying
Judge Adams gave orders not to allow
any one to st op under tha court house win
dows. The juror: got on to it through the
deputies, and they called to everybody who
went by: “Move on! Pass by! Don’t look
up here.” People going home'from church
were guyed along with the rest. Not even
ladies who looked up escaped. Nothing was
permitted to lie sent up to the jurors excopt
their meals and tobacco. The most of them
got. pillows and blankets from home on
Saturday,-and when night came on were
prepared to pa.-w the night a little more
comfortably thiui Friday night w;us passed.
If they calculated oh being discharged
yesterday they were disappointed. They
probably counted on last night being the
last of their iniprisonment. They did not
sit up late, but soon after the church bolls
rang pulled down UlO blinds, turned off thd
gas, tolded themselves ir. their blankets ami
stretched out oil tho tabk-s. How they stand
was as much e mystery at midnight as
on Saturday morning, fait ton to two was
still to be the division. Nearly
every one seemed to tlinik that Juror Har
per was one of the two, and a good many
thought that Juror Lingg was the other, it.
is expected that they will lie discharged this
morning some time, but it is not at all cer
tain, as the Judge may think it. worth while
to keep them locked up a few days longer.
Up to 1 o’clock this morning they had been
locked up 55 hours.

FROM JAFFA TO JERUSALEM.
An Interesting Journey Graphically j
Tiie following is an extract from a letter
written by a distinguished clergyman to a
gentleman in this city:
Jerusalem, March 28.—Dear St. J.:
Wo arrived here yesterday from .Tafl'a
(Joppa), having broken the journey by stop
ping at Lntrun the first night. It is only
thirty-six miles from here to the coast,, and,
just think. Jerusalem is higher above the
sea than the Cumberland plateau.
Tiie road comes out of Jaffa through the
most luxuriant orange groves, still tilled
with most lieautiful oranges, and the lemons
are as line as I ever saw. Beyond Jaffa you
emerge u(ion a broad plain, one living sea of
green, “verily, in verdure clod.” It is tho
plain of Sharon, and fourteen miles distant,
across the wheat and barley fields rise the
mountains of Judea—over the rocky passes
Samson and David and the armies
of Israel used to come and raid
the Philistines, who fought hard for
the beautiful plains. AVe soon came to a
slight rise, where tho acclivity begins, and
the dragoman said it was the place where
Samson let go the 800 foxes in the corn of
the Philistines. The land now ever rises,
and fields and olive groves and stone watch
towers and little mud-built villages succeed
each other, until we reached Ramleh, where
our coachman fed his three horses. In half
an hour we set off again and came to Latruu,
a small village named, as is supposed, from
tiie Latin for robber, “Latro,” of course
because it used to be infested with them;
but medkovulism with its ill-timed tradi
tions insists that it takes its name from be
ing the birth place of tiie, penitent thief.
We stopixxl at Latruu all night, in How
ard's stone inn, and went on in the morning,
ever rising up into tiie mountains, which
become more precipitous and barren. Soon
wo passed Kirjatn-joarim, where the ark
of God rested so long before it went to Jeru
salem, ami then came to the valley of Elah.
where tiie Israelites and Philistines stood
over against each ot her, and where with a
stone front the brook David slew the giant;
and soon passed Etonians, where our dear
Lord came on tiie first Easter afternoon
with the two disciples, whom He taught as
they walked and whose hearts burned with
in them, and how He was known of them
“in breaking of bread.” This was about
seven miles from Jerusalem, and still we
continued rising over a very good graded
uiul macadamized road (inplaces). Atiastat
1:20 wo saw the lire domes of the Russian
mission outside the walls, and then the
chapels on the Mount of Olives. Jerusalem
within th'- walls you do not see until you
are immediately upon it. We stopped at
the hotel without the walls and as to-day is
very rainy, I have not gone out so cannot
yet tell you what the Iloly City presents in
its interior. W. T.
LUDDEN & BATES SOUTHERN MU
Annual Election of Officers.
The annual election for officers and direc
tors of the 1 .widen & Bates Southern Music
House was hold on the first Tuesday in April,
and resulted os follows:
President, W. Hidden: Treasurer, J. A.
Rates; Secretary, John 1). Murphy. Direc
tors: U . Hidden, J. A. Bates, John D. Mur
phy, F. E. McArthur.
Mr. J. A. Bates, who has been acting as
General Manager of the business, finding liis
duties too arduous in the present state of his
health, naked to lie i+liovod of a portion of
his responsibilities, raid accordingly Mr. F.
E. McArthur was appointed Superintendent
of the Music, Musical Merelujndise and
Art Departments, and given supervision of
the store, office and working force, exclusive
of those si>ccia!!y employed in the Fin no and
Ortjan and Tuning and Uepairimj Depart
ments, which will remain under control of
Mr. John 1). .Murphy, who has been their
efficient manager since the organization of
the company in ISS4.
Mr. Bates being thus relieved of a vast
amount of detail work and responsibility
which has taxed his powers so severely for
many years past will, through the co-oj(ora
tion of these two experienced and eminently
capable gentlemen, be enabled to secure im
peratively liv'dcd rest and recuperation,
while at the same time giving the business
the benefit of his oversight and advice.
His health has already been very much
improved, and it is expected that a lew
months moro of relaxation will restore him
to his old-time vigor.
Owing to his disability since Sept. Ist, the
current business has been under charge of
Messrs. Murphy and McArthur, and it is a
gratifying tact that under their skillful
management the house has not only held its
own. but has steadily gained in prosperity.
New lines of goods have been added, new
business methods adopted, the discipline and
efficiency of the working force greatly in
creased, and, best of all, the amount of stock
on hand and the outstanding accounts have
ls'ii actually decreased over SdS,(KK> since
April Ist, fusil, thus giving the company
that much additional cash working capital.
One of the most marked mid satisfactory
changes made was the adoption of the strict
cash system in the sale of all goods, except
ing Pianos and Organs. This was a bold
move in a credit-cursed city like Savannah,
but it was carried through without loss of
paying trade, and the results have satisfied
the house that ‘‘there's millions iu it.”
All goods arc now sold cash on delivery
in the city or cash with order if outside of
Savannah, with the result of protecting the
house from all losses through bad debt.;, and
also insuring to purchasers the very lowest
cash pi ices. The hou.se is now building up a
snot cash with order retail trade in Music,
Ismail Instruments and Art Goods, of large
proportions, which extends throughout the
entire South. Pianos and Organs they are
still placing by thousands on their popular
easy installment plans, and there seems lit
erally no limit to what can be done iu this
line of trade The whole South is th< ir field,
and most thoroughly do they work it. Of
their magnificent. Temple of Music we have
so often spoken that we will at this time
only allude to the changes recently made on
the first Moor, nr general salesroom, which
add so much Pits space and attractiveness.
A charming Piano and Art Parlor and re
ception room lias I win located near the very

THE HOME CLUB BEATEN AGAIN
BY THE UMPIRE.
Ten Inning’s and a Score of 15 to 12
at Nashville -Umpire Burbridge Re
leased After Having Lost Savannah
Two Games New Orleans Defeats
Mobile How Sunday Games are
The first Sunday league games were
played yesterday at Nashville and Mobile.
New Orleans and Nashville wore tho win
ning teams. The scores were:
Nashville. 15; Savannah, 12.
New Orleans, 5; Mobile, 4.
The propriety of Sunday games was dis
cussed at the New Orleans meeting in
February. There was some doubt as to
whether pulilic. sentiment would sustain
them, and the matterjwas left to local man
agers to determine. In Tennessee, Georgia
and South Carolina the State law's forbid
Sunday exhibitions. Nashville, however,
seems to have got around the State and
county officials, and Memphis is about to
try the experiment. There will hardly be
any effort to introduce Sunday games here
or in Charleston, as public sentiment is
opposed to any move in that direction.
The result of yesterday’s game at Nash
ville drops tho home club a peg lower. Tiie
game, however, seems to have Been manipu
lated by tho umpire, who decided in Nash
ville's favor, making the second game that
Savannah has lost through one-sideil umpir
ing. There seeins to tie no doubt that Bur
bridge was unfit for the position, sinco ho
has been release.! by President Morrow-.
The only regret is that he was not given his
release before he got in his work on the
Savannah and Nashville seem to be pretty
evenly matched, both in the field and at tho
bat. Somers, though inclined to be wild,
pitched a fine game yesterday. He gave
live men bases,but beyond that bis box work
was very effective. As soon as Manager
Morton is able to strengthen the weak
points of the team, which he will be able to
do probably by next, week. Savannah will
be in a position to go ahead and take her
place ii]i at the top.
To-duy’s games w ill close the second se
ries. To-morrow tiie clubs will swing
around, and 011 Wednesday will play as fol
Savannah at Mobile.
Charleston at New Orleans.
Nashville at Memphis.
Burbridge Wins Another Game.
Nashville, April 24.—The first Sunday
game of base bail for two years was played
between Nashville and Savannah to-day be
fore the largest and most orderly crowd ever
seen in the Nashville base ball park. There
were nearly 4,000 people present, including
the largest delegation of ladies seen there
this season. The game was hotly contested,
and while errors were not rare they
were so well divided as to make things
about even. The playing was about even,
but Nashville again had the umpire on her
side. At the end of the ninth inning the
game stood 10 to 10. in the tenth inning
Nashville made five and Savannah two runs
and the crowd was wild with delight.
There was sduv.t apprehension that the
State law against. Sunday base ball would be
enforced, but both the city and county offi
cials had been interviewed and nothing was
done by way of interruption. It is be
lieved that public sentiment will now sus
tain Sunday games ns affording harmless
recreation to many hundreds who must
work all the week and could not otherwise
see the game. The official score to-day is:

bridge after the game for refusing to enforce
the rules preserving order, particularly the
rule against the use of profane language on
the ball field. It is not t bought that this is
the only objection, as Burbridgo’s decisions
have been fur from satisfactory to either
side. Joe Diestsol, who was released by the
Nashville Club, has been appointed to the
New Orleans Wins Attain.

GENERAL RAILWAY NEWS.
Matters of Money and Management
About Various Lines.
The track-laying force of the Covington
anil Macon have about reached Montieello.
The grading force of the Jacksonville,
Mayport and Pablo Railway and Navigation
Company has reached Arlington. Several
loads of iron have been delivered at May
port, but it has been decided to wait until
enough has been delivered to complete the
road before the line will be laid.
The board of directors of the Mobile and
Girard railroad met last week and accepted
the resignation of President llaoul. Dr.
N. P. Hanks, of Columbus, was elected
President, and IV. H. McClintoch was
elected to the directory to fill the vacancy
caused by Dr. Banks’ promotion.
The Alabama Midland surveying corps
has reached Montgomery. Mr. Arthur Pou,
who was chief engineer of the Savannah,
Dublin and Western railway, is chief of
the corps. The work of making the survey
aud fixing the route is being pushed right
along, and the company is composed of men
who mean business. The people at different
points along the road have subscribed liber
ally. showing that they want the road and
are determined to have it.
The Savannah and Western engineering
corps was in Eastman last week. The corps
is headed by Maj. Winn, who says in re
gard to the route from Savannah to Mc-
Vfile, that it is a splendid route, aud runs
through some of as fine timber as he ever
saw. Another thing, the road, lie says,
could be built from Savannah to
McVillc at a cost below the average cost of
railroads. In regard to Eastman as the ter
minus of the road, he said that of course
everything depends on the survey, but if the
country between Eastman and Savannah is
a good one, and the survey comes out ail
right, Eastman will have the advantage.
The Dublin Gazette is authority for the
statement that Gen. Alexander has ordered
the Dublin ard Tennilte road pushed through
to Hawkinsville, and the Gazette states that
the work will lie done at an early day. This
statement leads the Hawkinsville Notes to
remark that Gen. Alexander can see as far
into a railroad grindstone as any rail
roa, l man in the United States.
Th i extension of the Dublin and
Te mills line to Perry via Hawkinsville,
th; News claims, would give the Central
another very important and, perhaps, the
most direct and shortest line to Birmingham
via Columbus and Good water extension. It
would also enable it to hold its share of the
traffic of that section of country, and which
is now threatened by other railroad corpora
In Favor of a Commission.
At a moating of Pensacola's business men
held a day or two ago to discuss railroad
matters the following resolutions were
Resolved, That a committee of five lie ap
pointed to ilraw up resolutions memorializing
the Interstate Commerce Commissioners in
favor of suspending the operation of'the long
and short haul clause.
Resolved. That this Board respectfully re
quest the Legislature of the State of Florida
now in session to pass the Railroad Commission
bill, now before the said Legislature, with such
provisions as will secure uniformity and equali
ty in freight and passenger rales, prevent dis
crimination, and also to secure a reduction of
rates, especially m the cases of the land grant
railroads and that the Secretary of the Board
transmit a cony of this resolution to the Gov
ernor of the State, to lie transmitted by him to
tlio Senate and Assembly.
The Vestibule Train.
The much talked of “vestibuled train,”
George Pullman's latest conception, is at
tracting much favorable attention. The
platform of each car is smaller than that, of
the ordinary car, and it is covered with a
structure that looks like a big open sentinel's
box. When two cars are brought together
these two boxes meet, and a vestibule is
formed, so that instead of walking, or rather
diving, across a bounding, swaying plat
form, one crosses from one car to another as
easily as from one room to another through
a passageway. The boxes consist of broad
thick frames of steel, like huge inverted ox
bows, which are supported by strong, elastic
pressure, derived from springs. These
springs bear against the top and sides of the
steel frame, as well as against the solid
timbers composing the platforms of the cars
and the upper part of the superstructure.
When two ears are brought together the
springs cause the frames of the vestibule to
stick together firmly, and so no dirt or wind
gels in. In going around curves vulcanized
rubber placed in the frames admits of the
necessary bending. The vestibule also, to a
great extent, prevents oscillation.

THE MERCHANT MARINE.
The South Atlantic Shipping LeagUe
to Meet This Week.
The South Atlantic Coast Department of
the American Shipping and Industrial
League will hold its annual convention in
Charleston to-day, to-morrow and Wednes
day. This department of the league is pre
sided over bv Mayor Courtenay, of Charles
ton, with Col. w: T. Forbes, of Florida, as
Secretary. The object of the league, as set
forth in the call for the convention, "is to
promote the development and distribution
of the products of American labor by an
extension of the merchant marine of the
United States, and to establish thereby
more intimate commercial intercourse with
other countries by frequent and direct mail
service. The resuscitation of our national
merchant marine is a matter of great im
portance to the industrial and commercial
interests of the iieople of the South Atlantic
coast, whose interest in American shipping
is equal to that of any section of the coun
try. The object of the convention is one of
national interest and importance, and it is
expected that 'representatives will be pres
ent from every section of the department to
co-operate in the restoration to our waters
of American ships built and owned in the
THE TUG "CAMBRIA.”
The Savannah Tow Boat Company’s
The steam tug Cambria, of the White
Cross Towing and Transportation Compa
ny of Charleston, was purchased on Satur
day by the Savannah Propeller Tow Boat
Company of this city. The price paid was
$20,000. The Cambria arrived here yester
day afternoon in charge of Capt. William
H. Payne, after a run of nine "hours.
She would have made the trip
in a much shorter time but for the fact that
she encountered a very heavy sea outside.
Mr. H. W. Snssord, her engineer, stated to
a Morning News reporter that the hull of
the vessel was built by Pregnall Brothers at
Charleston in 1888. Her engines tuid ma
chinery were built by the well-known firm
Neofie & Levy, of Philadelphia. Her
capacity and dimensions are as follows: KM

00 feet in length over all, 11) feet breadth
of beam and 0 feet depth of hold. She is

2,200 gallons jier minute, and is thoroughly
fitted out for wrecking purposes. She has a
speed ot thii-teen miles per hour. She is a
larger vessel than any of the kind here, and
is considered by her owners to he tlio largest
