: This Corner-Stone Laid
April, A. D. 1887.
After hymn 275 was sung Rev. Mr. Boone
delivered an address on the “Origin and
Growth of the Episcopal Orphans' Home.”
A NOBLE charity.
Mr. Boone said:
On an occasion like this it is natural to look
back to the origin of the charitable institution
tho corner-stone of whose new building we are
at this time laying. To review the history of
institutions, and to trace their history back to
the first apparently small beginning, is always
■both interesting and instructive. The mind of
"j alien mau is too apt to despise "the day of
Ymnll things.” To prompt man to say: "Assign
fo me some great and important work anal
Will strive to do it, but this little undertaking,
this insignificant duty, is hardly worth my
while." But the kingdom of God, "which
someth not with observation," does not often
offer such great opportunities -opportunities
great, according to worldly estimates, to her
children. The prophet does not. come forth ns
Nan man expects and utter great words and
strike his hand over the place and heal the
leper, but merely sen Is his servant
Out to bid him bathe seven times
In Jordan. And so it ever is—“there
“staudt&h one among” the multitudes "whom
they know not.” But it is a mark of the great
anti the good that they sett and then seize what
men call the little opportunities, and do what,
their hand findeth to do; and lo'. Christ hath
been served: He hath been fed and visited ami
cared tor by one who was doing some apparent
ly slight service to one of those least of His
And so. if I am correctly informed, this noble
charity had its beginning in this way: One who
has been judged by those who knew' him liest,
themselves in many cases men of marked dis
tinction, to he one of our church’s greatest
sons, both in gifts and in goodness, came to
Georgia to be its first Bishop. Bishop Stephen
Elliott came to Savannah in 1841.
He immediately organized a mission and t ook
charge of it himself, as the old parish of the
city. Christ church, was in charge of its well be
loved pastor. Rev. Dr. Edward Neufville, and
the Bishopt wished to do ministerial work in ad
dition to his more strictly Episcopal duties.

This mission, of which Bishop Elliott took
charge immediately after his consecration,
■gr w into what is now the
[orous and nourishing parish of
John's church. Bishop Elliott started a
nday school and a week-day parish school
■poor children connected with both Christ
c|rtivh parish and St. John’s Mission. Two
les at hiR request went about the city
Ing up the poor children who were not
and for by others and inviting them to join
e two schools. They furnished those who
led it with plain but nent clothing, and
i a Sunday school and parish school were
in. There was a box placed in the mission
re those interested iu the work might place
r contributions. Several persons gave to
object, but the regular and liberal contribu
tions of one person soon caused the little fund
to exceed the sum needed for the Sunday school
Sd the parish school combined, and then the
ihop found a little boy who needed to lie
cared for, made provision out of this fund for
his support end placed an orphan in a home,
even if he had not yet an "Orphans’ nome.”
THE FIRST HOME.
Then one after another, boys or girls, a whole
family of children at one time were taken uu
der tne fostering care of this new movement.
The Bishop asked and received tho ready assist
ance of a few ladies in this work, and the sur
plus money which had suggested the caring
for orphans and had made the movement seem
pract Icablo was found to have been given by
the Hon. Robert M. Charlton, an eminent
jurist and a truly Christian layman
And thus began that institution which
has now, through many years and by the help of
many other noble and devoted men and women
of both Christ church and St. John’s church,
grown to such proportions and hoa before it
such possibilities or further usefulness a to
need anew building on a larger plan for its fu
HONOR TO THR FOUNDERS.
All honor, then, to Bishop Elliott, to the ladies
who helped him, and to Judge Robert M. Chari
ton The Episco)i&l Orphans' Home will ever
look upon that honorable group of Christians
as its founders and first helpers and friends.
Stephen Elliott, Georgia g ••Princely Bish
op,” as Dr. Cotcsworth Pinckney
calls him, who further says: “He was
the most gifted man I have ever known, with a
single exception.” Bishop Stevens says: “But
I need not portray one w hom all Georgia loved
and praised, and whose name and fame w ill
ever stand in the forefront of this diocese as its
first and model Bishop " Judge Robert M.
Charlton's chief glory, in my judgment, was
that be added to all his other good
rifts of mind shown as jurist and poet

THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIA
TION ON ITS TRAVELS.

sociation is and the Men Who Com
pose It- What Car Accountants Do.
The International Association of Car
Accountants, which met last week in At
lanta, arrived in Savannah at 4:30 o’clock
yesterday morning by special train from
Florida and spent the day in the city.
There are forty gentlemen and twenty-live
ladies in the party. The association left
Jdflunta Thursday night, and alter a trip
through Florida is now on its way back to
Atlanta, where the excursion will end and
the excursionists will separate for their
homes. The special train which brought
the party from Jacksonville was tendered
as a compliment by the Savannah, Florida
and Western railway and was in charge of
Mr. .1. I'. Marseher, car accountant of the
mad. The excursionists were met at.the
depot upon (heir arrival here by Mr George
R. Patterson, local passenger agent, and
carriages were placed at their disposal.
DRIVE THROUGH THE CITY.
At 8 o’clock the party breakfasted at the
Screven House, and at 9:30 carriages were
ordered by the management of the Savan
nah, Florida ami Western for a drive about
the city and to Bonaventure aud Thunder
bolt. After inspecting the Centra! railroad
wharves the party was entertained on board
trie steamship City of Augusta. The Savan
nah, Florida and Western wharves were
then visited and after that came the drive
over the shell road to Bonaventure. Upon
their return to the city fvery carriage was
loaded with moss gathered from the historic
old oaks, whose stately trunks and moss
draped branches have been and are the ad
miration of thousands of visitors. The
party reached the city at 1 o’clock and
drove through the principal streets, along
the Bay aud out Bull street to the Park,
returning to the Screven House for dinner
at 3 o’clock.
VISITED THE ARMORIES.
After dinner some of the excursionists
visited the G uards’ arsenal and the Chatham
Artillery armory and saw the old Washing
ton guns. Another party, upon invitation
of Mr. Dennis Murphy, visited the Hermit
age, and others visited Forsyth Pork. At
3:30 carriages were again ordered to take

o’clock they left by special train, placed at
their disposal bv the Charleston and Savan
nah railway, for the Earthquake City.

will witness the unveiling of the Calhoun
monument and will visit Fort Sumter, and
to-night will leave for Augusta via the
South Carolina railway. From Augusta
they will go to Atlanta, reaching there to
morrow morning, after a five days’ trip.
The Central railroad tendered the party a
special train to Atlanta, and arrangements
were made by Mr. Theo. Wells, Car Ac
oountant of the Central, to take them back
to the starting point of the excursion, but a
change of route necessitated the abandoning
of the trip. Every courtesy was shown tho
excursionists by the Central people here.
THE FLORIDA “PILGRIMAGE.”
The “pilgrimage” through Florida was a
mast interesting one, and the excursionists
were splendidly entertained wherever they
stopped. Leaving Atlanta by the East Ten
nessee, Virginia and Georgia road on Thurs
day night, they reached Brunswick the next
morning, and were taken to Fernandina by
the Cumberland line of steamers. At Fer
naudina they were tendered a dinner by the

by the Jacksonville and Atlantic road. Re
turning to Jacksonville Saturday night, they
left by the Deßary Baya steamer City of
Jacksonville for Palatka.
From Palatka the excui-sionists were
taken to Rt. Augustine. They spent several
hours in the Ancient City, visiting the vari
ous points of interest, among others the
ruins of the old cathedral and the slave
market and Fort Marion, and returned to
Jacksonville Sunday evening by the Jack
sonville. Tampa and Key West road, where
they were taken in charge by Mr. Marscher
and started for Savannah.
A FINE BODY OF MEN.
The association is composed of as fine a
body of railroad men as has ever visited the
South. Frank J. Hoyle, President of the
association, is a Southern man, representing
the East Tennessee, Virginia ami Georgia
system. He is an Atlantian by birth, and
began his railroad career as a telegraph
ojierator on the Western and Atlantic rail
road, at the little town of Aeworth, in 1871.
His success and promotion were rapid, for
within a > <sir's time lie was appointed chief
operator of the Alabama and Chattanooga
railroad, now the Alabama Great
Southern, with headquarters at Bir
mingham, having his office in
the first, house built in that city. During
three stirring times he sei-ved under no less
than five different administrations in one
year. After quitting the railroad business
for a time he returned to it in tSKI as bill
ing clerk at a small terminal station on the
East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia. His
promotion was rapid. In 1883 he was ad
vanced from assistant train dispatcher to
the position of ear accountant., and with one
clerk took charge of the ear service depart
ment of the East Tennessee system.
AN EFFICIENT OFFICER.
He has been an earnest, zealous and hard
working member of the Car Accountants’
Association since it was organized, and his
election to the presidency is a recognition of
his ability and fitness for the position. He
was elect-si Vice President a year ago. The
other ofßiv.s of 1 iie association who are with
the party arc Mr. Klbridgc M. Horton, of
the Illinois Central railroad. Treasurer, and
Mr. H. H. Lyon, of the Chicago and Alton
road, Secretary. Both are active, energetic
railroad men and efficient representatives of
WHAT A OAR ACCOUNTANT DOES.
The otije -t of the Car Accountants’Asso
ciation is to secure uniformity of reports
and actions in everything pertaining to the
car service department. The duty of near
accountant is to kis-p a record of the move
ments of the cars of his road. The w ork
has been greatly improved and systema
tized through the efforts of the association.
For example, a Central railroad car loaded,
say, witli merchandise for St. Paul, or Min
neapolis. or Fargo, or even San Francisco.
The car gm-s through to its nostina
-1 n *ii, and by a system of reports the
C -utral railroad ear accountant keeps his
eyes upon it all the time. A report, is made
to him every time ft passes from -me road to
another until it reaches its tinal destination.

A Mistrial Declared in the Fogarty
Case Last Night.
At 8 o’clock last night the twelve jurors
in the Thomas Fogarty ease completed their
seventy-two hours of captivity and were
discharged. All day they remained out
patiently waiting lor His Honor, Judge
Adams, to send for them. Finally, at fi
o’clook a message was sent to the Judge in
forming him that there was no prospect of
a verdict. He reached the court house
about 7 o’clock. Solicitor Generaldußignon,
representing tho State, and Col. Wil
liam Garrard, representing the de
fendant, were present. Fogarty had
not been brought out from jail
and hi shonor said that he would be back at
8 o’clock. At that hour the prisoner was
taken into the court room, and the lawyers
being present the jurors were called in.
Some of them were expecting they would
have to stay out another night and lmd
already wrapped themselves up for slumber.
When they were all seated Judge Adams,
addressing Mr. D. G. Ileidt, said:-
“Mr. Foreman—l have received a commu
nication in which you state that in your
opinion the jury cannot agree. Have you
any difficulty about any question of law?”
Tdon’t think so," the foreman replied.
“You do not desire to be recharged?”
“Your charge, I believe, was fully under
“There is no question, then, as to which
the court can aid you in any manner?”
“It does not seem so to me, sir. We have
talked the case over freely, and cannot
“Are you perfectly satisfied that this
jury cannot agree?"
“There docs not apjiear to be any chance,
“Then, gentlemen, relying upon that
statement of your foreman, I will not keep
vou together longer, and inasmuch as you
have been away from your homes, your
business and your families for four days I
do not think tint the court ought to require
you anv longer.”
Mr. Ileidt was accordingly withdrawn
and a mistrial was declared. The twelve
jurors were then discharged for the term.
Mr. dußignon immediately asked the court
to reassign the cosa for trial to-morrow,
saying that ho thought it was his duty to
the State and the public to try the case at
the present term.
Col. Uarrwu objected to an assignment
for to-morrow. Mr. Meldrim, his partner,
is in Atlanta, he stated, attending the Su
preme Court and will be engaged there on
Wednesday and probably on Thursday. As
Mr. Meldrim had conducted the defense
Col. Garrard staled that it would be im
possible for his firm to handle the ease this
week. Judge Adams stated tiiat he had
intended to adjourn the court on Saturday
for the term, as he will start out on the cir
cuit Monday, going to Bryan county. He
finally decided to set the case for Thursday
of next week. May 5.
Fogarty was taken back to jail after the
mistrial was declared. There were very few
present in court when the jury came in.
The young prisoner appeared to be consid
erably affected. One of the jurors stated
that they stood ten for conviction and two
for acquittal, the two being Robert J. liar-,
per and Joseph E. Campas. One of the ju
rors desired it stated that they did not guy
anj- ladies while locked up. The deputies
all agreed that it was the quietest jury that
they ever had charge of for such n long time,
In case it seems impossible to Judge Adams
for an impart ial jury to be obtained he can
grant a change of venue upon the applica
tion of either the defense or the State and
transfer the case to one of the other counties
in the circuit.

THIEVESIN A WINE VAULT
HEAVY ROBBERY OF OLD VIN
TAGES AT THE PULASKI.
The YViltberger Cellar Broken Into and
Several Hundred Bottles of Rare Ma
deira Stolen- Three of the Thieves
Captured—Wines that Cost Thous
ands of Dollars Drunk by Negro Por
ters and Yardmen.
tV ill lain Dixon, Adam Matthews and
Tom Golden were arrested last night for
burglarizing a private wine vault in the
Pulaski House cellar. Dixon is a fireman
at the Pulaski and Matthews is a yard man.
Both were committed to jail. Golden gave
bond and was released.
The cellar of the hotel is a series of heavy
walled apartments. About the centre
of the building, on the south side,
is a deep vault with brick
walls several feet thick, reached through a
narrow, dark passage way. The door open
ing into the vault is a ponderous wood affair
several inches thick, strongly bolted and
hung upon huge iron hinges. It was fast
ened with two locks—one a strong padlock
slipped over an iron strap and through a
staple. Inside of this vault is another
smaller vault built in one corner, and
closed with a heavy plank door. Both
vaults aiy lighted by small, heavily haired
and grated windows.
RARE OI,D WINES.
In these two cellars the rare old wines be
longing to the Wiitberger estate were stored.
They were known to bo ancient vintages,
and were valued at thousands of dollars.
Some time ago Capt. James K. Clarke and
Judge W. S. Chisholm purchased the wine,
or a part of it, for $2,(X10. The vaults were
kept locked and the keys were in possession
of Col. R. J. Davont, agent of the estate.
While going through the cellar of the
hotel yesterday Col. Davaut found the door
of the outer vault partly open. The lock
was broken and the staple was twisted off.
Inside everything was in confusion Empty
wine cases were scattered over the floor and
piles of sawdust indicated that someone
had been in there very recently. The door
of the inner vault was broken down and
torn from its hinges.
SEARCHING THE CELLAR.
Detective Wetberhom was notified, and
in company with Col. Davant made a thor
ough examination of the interior of the cel
lar. It was evident that a large amount of
wine had been taken, but how much it was
impossible to tell, as there was no list ob
Dixon and Matthews, the two negroes em
ployed in the cellar and in the hotel yard,
slept in a room near the vault, and they
were at once suspected of being the guilty
parties. Dixon was found at work in the
yard, and was accused of the theft. He
admitted that he had 1 icen in the
vault and had taken away some of the wine,
and said that he had five or six bottles of it
then in his room. He was immediately ar
rested, with Matthews, who roomed with
Both negroes were taken lief ore Justice
Waring Russell, Jr., and a warrant charg
ing them with burglary was sworn out by
PART OF IT RECOVERED.
Their room was searched and twenty-seven
bottles of wine and a quantity of table and
glassware from the hotel dining room and
from Sullivan’s bar was found stowed away.
Dixon admitted that he took the wine, but
denied that he broke into the vault. He
said that he found the door open last Thurs
day and went in and got the wine. He had
drank several bottles of it, but said that he
didn’t like it very well. “It may be good,
but it aint de right wine for me, he said to
Capt. Clarke when asked how he liked it.
Matthew's denied having been in
the vault or having drank any
of the wine. When close pressed
Dixon implicated Golden in the theft. He
said that he told Golden about the wine last
week, and took him down to the cellar and
into the vault, and that Golden carried some
of the wine away.
HIDDEN UNDER A BED.
Officer Wetherhoru went to Golden's house
in Tama craw and accused him of the theft.
He denied it at ilrst, but after he learned
that Dixon had given him away he admitted
that he did have several bottles of the wine.
A search was made and thirty-five bottles
were found hidden under a bed. Golden
and several of his friends had a gathering
on Sunday and drank thirteen bottles—how
much more the officers didn’t learn. It was
evidently of too rare a vintage for Golden,
as he was pretty well used up, bar ing dis
posed of something over a case of the wine,
worth at the lowest estimate si>o a case.
Golden was arrested for burglary on a war
rant sworn out by Capt. Clarke.'
Golden said that Dixon told him that he
had been stealing the wane for eight months.
The thieving, it is evident, has been going
on for at least that length of time, as Air.
Sullivan has for several months paSt missed
wines from his vaults adjoining the one
broken open, and various articles have been
taken from the hotel stores. Dixon
had the keys to the cellars, and has doubt
less kept himself and his friends supplied
with the fat of the land from the wine
vaults and hotel storerooms for a year or
more. The w ine in the Wiltberger cellar
was fine old Madeira of the vintages of ’BO,
'B2 and 'B 7. Capt. Clarke said that there
was not a bottle of it that was not worth $•!.
The case against Dixon and Golden will
be pushed, and in the meanwhile an investi
gation will he made to discover if possible
other robberies that have been committed
in the hotel.
