Purchasers Are and What They
Paid for the Property.
A crowd of a hundred or mom people
gathered around City Marshal R. J. Wade
when he mounted a rickety table in front of
the county court house, yesterday forenoon
to sell twenty-five blocks of the Dillon tract.
Among those present w ere the members of
the Council Committee on City Lots. The
land lies between Seventh and Twelfth
and Barnard and Fiorance streets.
The portion put up for sale comprised per
haps a little more thjpi one-halt of the whole
tract purchased by the city less than
a year ago for $60,000. All of the
streets, eleven in number, passing
through the original tract were reserved by
the city, and also a row of five blocks north
of Seventh street and two blocks south of
Tenth, between Whitaker and Barnard.
The terms were one-fourth cash, one-fourth
payable Sept. 1, and the balance in one and
two years at 7 pet cent, interest. Under a
resolution adopted by the City Council, the
Committee on City Lots hud placed a mini
mum r. ice on earn block. These minimum
values ranged from $BOO to $5,500. according
to the locality of the property, and
they aggregated $70,000. Some of the
blocks contained eight lots, others ten, and
still others sixteen.
Block A, lying between Barnard and Jef
ferson aud Seventh and Eighth, was the first
offered. It was supposed to be the most de
sirable, and hence the most valuable block
for sale. The mininum price was $5,500.
The City Marshal called it a number of
times, but did not get a bid and it was
Block E, bounded by Eleventh and
West Twelfth and Hama ixl
and Jefferson, was the second
put up. It contains ten lots and the mini
mum price was $3,000. Mr. C. H. Dorsott
started it at $2,000. Someone bid $5O more,
and then it raised $lO and $5 at a time
until it reached $2,250, when it was knocked
down to Mr. Dorsett. After that four
blocks were withdrawn before a bid could
be obtained. Except in one or two cases
there was very little spirit in the bidding.
Altogether twelve blocks of the twenty-five
were sold, the other thirteen being with
drawn because no one would offer the mini-

MISS VAN TASSEL’S PLAYS.
Tho Company Makes a Hit in “Gyp”—
The Cora Van Tassel Company appeared
fn “Gyp” at popular prices at the Theatre
last, night. “Gyp” has a strong flavor of
“M’liss” and “’49.” In fact the situations
are strikingly similar and so is tho dialogue.
Miss Vau Tassel was the waif of rough ex
terior, but kind-hearted and affectionate.
Her “Gyp” is not so buxsome and hurelly so
rollicking a creation as Annie Pixley’s
“M’liss,” but it was clever and improved as
the play proceeded. Edwin Young’s
“Judge” was amusing and Mr. WooJ
worth’s “Fake” w as well done.

in the piece. Misses Healey and Lindley, as

CROWNED QUEEN OF MAY.
The Children’s Party and Ball at the
Two hundred bright-faced, happy little
masters and misses danced and romped at
their own sweet will through the big drill
room of the Guards Arsenal yesterday after
noon. It was a children’s May party, and
further than seeing that no harm came to
the little folks the big ones did not interfere
with their amusement.
Every May festival must have its queen,
and a prettier, statelier little queen than sat
upon the flower-canopied throne in the cen
tre of the big hall at, the crowning last night
could hardly lie found outside of fairyland.
At the entrance to the hall were three
boxes and into one of them everyone who
entered the hall dropped a vote for the
queen. There were three candidates in the
field for queenly honors, Belle Brandt;
daughter of Mr. Carl L. Brandt,
Dora Cohen, daughter of Mr.
Octants Cohen, and Nina Heyward,
daughter of Mr. J. G. Heyward. Nearly
500 votes were cast. Miss Brandt received
a majority and was declared queen-elect.
The crowning took place at 6 o’clock. The
throne was built in tlm centre of the hall
underneath a canopy of evergreens and
roses. The queen-elect was led up the hall
and seated upon the throne by the lily
managers, Mrs. W. G. Charlton,’Mrs. L. M.
Warfield, Mrs. IV. 11. Daniel and Mrs. J. D.
Weed. She chose for her king Mas
ter Willie Wade, and with a wave
j of her wand signaled him to advance to her
side. Her attendants were Dora Cohen and
Hearing Harden and Nina Heyward and
Jack D’Antlgnae. After the crowning the
dance went on until 8 o'clock. By this time
the little folks were tired out.
At 9 o’clock the ball was to open. It was
nearly 10 though before dancing was begun.
The queen’s throne was moved to
the west end of the hall, and
the queen and her attendants remained
during the early part, of the evening. The
ball was not largely attended, but socially it
was a most delightful affair. It was given in
aid of the Episcopal Orphan’s Home, and
the lady managers are to be congratulated
upon its success.

ANOTHER HOTEL EFFORT.
A Movement Looking to the Purchase
of the Barracks Property.
To-morrow night tliff Oglethorpe Real Es
tate Company will hold a meeting to dis
cuss proposals for the barracks property at
Bull and Liberty streets.
A number of prominent citizens who are
interested in building anew hotel In Savan
nah have their eyes on the property, and if
they can get it at what they think is a rea
sonable price they will put up a hotel on
the site, The gentlemen who are interested
in the matter will meet to-day and decide
what they will do.
If the syndicate cannot get it at its price,
remarked a gentleman yesterday, the pro
ject will fall through. lie went on to say
that a few weeks ago there appeared to bo
very strong grounds for believing that the
long talked of new hotel was at last about
to be built. The President and the directors
of the Central railroad were anxious to help
the movement along. Several of the di
rectors were in favor of the company in
dorsing the bonds for the hotel. It turned
out, however, that such action would lie be
yond the power of the railroad company.
Mr. H. B. Hollins, of New York, the Cen
tral's First Vice President, has said tliat he
will subscribe SIO,OOO individually towards
the hotel. He believes that anew one will
There arc half a dozen Savannah capi
talis-ts who arc also willing to put up SIO,OOO
a piece for a 200-room hotel that would cost
with the site between $350,000 and $300,000.
The Central would advance SIOO,OOO for the
purpose, one-half to be returned and 6 per
cent, bonds to be given for the remainder.
The national banks cannot loan money on
real estate, and some of the other banks
have such a demand on them for money that
they are actually borrowing to accomodate
the demand. Where to get the" money is
therefore a question.
The syndicate now moving in the matter
believes that anew hotel would pay, but the
members are discouraged by the lack of in
terest which the public takes. Everybody
wants to see anew hotel built, hut very few
are willing to subscribe, and locations are
held high. The barracks property is said to
be held at about SIO,OOO more than the par
ties who have the refusal of it want to pay.
The Two Calhouns.
The New York Tribune has this to say of
two prominent directors of the Centra!, who
were in the city a day or two ago: “The re
cent unveiling of the statue of John C. Cal
houn at Charleston recalls the fact that two
descendants of that statesman havo lieen for
some time in New York business circles.
They are John C. Calhoun, of Arkansas,
and his brother, Patrick Calhoun. The Ar
kansas man is a six-footer of round and
heavy figure, with a large round face,
swarthy complexion, black moustache and
dark eyes, a handsome but (lull-looking man
of apparently sluggish temperament. He is
a planter in Arkansas, a man of
influence in polities, although he
has persistently refused to take office,
and lias acquired wealth. Patrick
Calhouu is a lawyer, slender in proportions,
nervous in temperament, with something of
the spirit and ways of the young blood of
the South in the days before the war. It is
said that he has been making a dead set in
W all street, and has been both fortunate
and unfortunate, after the manner of new
comers to that treacherous thoroughfare.
He was in the Richmond Terminal" ‘deal,’
and is reported to have made some money.
The C.'alhoims live at the New York Hotel,
which has a fascination for the Bourbon
from the South on account of its record
during the war.”

mander of the schooner Victor Puig, was
tendered a complimentary supper by some
of his Charleston friends Monday night in
honor of the completion of his thirteenth
year of service at that port.
The Xewx and Courier of yesterday re
ported upon what it deems trustworthy
authority, that a strike of the bricklayers in
Charleston has been ordered by, the Brick
layers’ Union. The object of the movement,
it is understood, is to insist upon nine hours’
work instead of the daily ten hours’ service
now of force.

THE PELICAN’S WIN AGAIN
THE HOME CLUB LOSES ITS
New Orleans and Mobile Yesterday’s
Winners —Memphis Refuses to Play
With Diostel as Urrsqire and Forfeits
a Game to Na3hville-Savannah to
Return Home this Week.
The home club has played fourteen league
games this year and out of that number has
won two. The way things aro going now
it looks very much as though that number
will be the limit. Yesterday’s game
at Now Orleans resulted 5 to
3 in favor of tho Policans. The umpire
was blamed for part of the defeat, but from
the score it looks very much as if Savannah
was outplayed. Murray did not make a
very brilliant showing, hut that is accounted
for by his lack of practice.
The club will play in New Orleans to-day
and to-morrotv and then return home. The
opening games will be on Saturday, Mon
day, Tuesday and Wodesday, with Charles
ton. What the result will be is not very
difficult to guess.
The present outlook for the Southern
League is not at all bright. Memphis has
become involved in a quarrel with Nash
ville and threatens to withdraw. Mobile
has been shaky from tho start, and
is not to bo counted on to
finish the season, and very little interest is
taken in the game here. New Orleans,
Charleston and Nashville are the only clubs
that seem to lie at all certain of the future.
What the outcome of the Memphis row will
be remains to be seen. If Memphis drops
out the league will have hard work to pull
through, and will be very likely to go to
Their Twelfth Defeat.
New Orleans, May 3. —Cloudy weather
was not conducive to good ball playing, and
neither Savannah nor tho locals played bril
liantly to-day. Murry played third lm.se
for Savannah and was away off. Durmeyer,
a local player signed by Savannah, played a
fine second base and ran bases well. Both
Somers and Aydelotte pitched a fine game.
Peltz was the only man to* hit Aydelotte
safely, and in one inning tiie
latter struck the side out. Somers
was very effective, and hold the locals down
to three singles and a base op balls. Both
sides did nice base running. Errors by Sa
vannah in the fli-st inning gave New Or
lans a big lead. Savannah played an up-hill
game after that, but could not quite get
there. The visitors blamed the umpire, but
Suck treated them much better than lie did

Close Work at Mobile.
The Mobile game to-day between Mobile
and Cnarleston would have been an enjoy
able one but for the constant yelling on the
part of the audience, which took special de
light in objecting to Umpire Atkinson’s
decisions. The game was close throughout,
Rtid the excitement was intense. Charleston
played well in the field and also at the hat,
nut Mobile’s infield was very lively and held
their opponents well down. It was a fly
catching game from the start. Mobile taking
in twelve flies and Charleston fourteen.
Kelly was hit pretty freely, and Smith al
most as bad. Errors were few, but runs
were made on every one. Charleston devel
oped considerable skill in stealing bases. All
in ail, tli<* contest, was the prettiest of the
series. The score was:

Memphis Refuses to Play.
Memphis, May 6.—There were about 800
disappointed people this afternoon who went
out to the ball jiark in anticipation of wit
nessing a game between Nashville and Mem
phis. President Ram T. Carnes, of the Mem
phis club, had telegraphed President Morrow
iiis objections to Diestol acting us umpire.
President Morrow telegraphed til reply that
if Capt. Carnes and James Clinton, field
captain of the Nashvilles, could agree upon
an umpire the game n light be played. (Tiu
ton, however, declined to act, giving ns a
reason that Bradley was the manager of the
Nashville club. Memphis offered to play
anil let any member of the Nnshvillo team
umpire the game. This proposition was
duclmod. Nashville wanted Diestol
and would not name nny other
person. Memphis then refused to play and
Diestol gave the galhe to Nashville by a
score of 9 to 0. Capt. Carnes this afternoon
again telegraphed President Morrow that if
he insisted on Diestol umpiring the games
here lie might consider Memphis ns having
withdrawn from the league. And thus tho
matter stands. The sentiment here is
strongly in favor of the i<osit,inn uAMiimxl
by Cant. Carnes, and it all rest/, with Presi
dent Morrow whether or not Memphis re
mains a member of the league.

FREAKS OF THE WEATHER.
The Signal Service Observations Dur
ing the Second Month of Spring.
The Signal Service reports sent out by the
War Department give sonio very interest
ing information in regard to the weather
The temperature for the month was
slightly above the normal in the Mississippi
valley, and Westward, over the Rooky
mountain regions, to the Pacific coast. Tho
greatest departures from the normal were
reported in the central Mississippi and lower
Missouri valleys. The temperature was also
slightly above the normal in Tennessee and
Kentucky and the Northern portion of
the Gulf States. In the districts on the At
lantic coast, and in the upper Ohio valley
and lower lake region it was slightly below
The rainfall for the month was generally
below the normal in the districts east of the
one hundredth meridian, except in Central
Missouri and thence eastward to West Vir
ginia, and from Southern Minnesota east
ward to Northern Michigan, and at isolated
stations on the immediate Atlantic coast,
where the rainfall has been slightly in ex
The drought continues in Southern Texas,
and the region of the greatest deficiency in
rainfall extends from Eastern Texas to the
South Atlantic coast, where the departures
range from two to six inches below the
normal. There has also been a deficiency,
ranging from one to three inches, from the
Central Missouri valley eastward over lowa,
Northern Illinois, Southern Missouri, South
ern Michigan and Northern Indiana.
Slight deficiencies are also reported in
Northern Minnesota and Northern Dakota
and in the central portions of California,
the defleienej' at stations in the Sacramento
valley amounting to about one inch, where
the average rainfall for the month is about
three inches. At Rocky mountain stations,
in extreme Northern Texas, and thence
northward to Dakota the rainfall has been
slsghtly in excess. On the Pacific coast and
in Southern California the rainfall has been
slightly in excess of the normal, and in
Oregon tlie excess ranges from 0.8 inch at
Roseburg to 1.8 inches at Portland. The
only stations reporting snow remaining on
the ground at the end of the month were
Salt Lake City one inch and Mount Wash
ington two inches.
The month opened with a storm on the
Atlantic coast central near Eastern Florida,
with snow extending as far south as North
Carolina on the Ist and 2d. This storm
moved rapidly northward and developed
great energy on the New England coast
during tho 2d, causing severe gales from
Norfolk northward to Nova Scotia.
On the 12th a disturbance developed in
Western Texas and moved northward to
Southern Dakota, attended by general
rains over Northern Texes and the eastern
slope of the Rocky mountains.
On the lfith a storm w as observed in West
ern Texas, which moved northeastward over
the Ohio valley and thence eastward over
the Middle Atlantic States during the 18th
ami l'.ttn, attended by heavy rains in the
Ohio Valley and dangerous easterly gales
on the Middle Atlantic coast on the 18th.
One of the most severe storms observed dur
ing the month was central in the Rocky
mountain regions on the 21st. It moved
slowly eastward, causing destructive local
storms in Missouri and adjoining States
during the night of the 21st, and passed over
the Lake regions on the 22d and 23d, at
tended by severe gales. The fifth severe
storm of the month was central in the Gulf
south of New Orleans on the 24th. It
moved rapidly norteastward, following
the coast line, increasing in
energy during the 25th, caus
ing severe gales from Norfolk northward to
Nova Scotia on the 28th. The sixth severe
storm of the month was observed north of
Montana on the 28th and moved southeast
ward to the low'er lake region, and thence
eastward over New England, where the
direction of movement changed to the north
ward, and at the end of the month it was
central near Eastport, but was apparently
decreasing in energy, with increasing pres
sure at tbe centre of tho disturbance.
The most severe cold wave of the month
was observed in Northern Montana on the
2d, and extended eastwasd over the Ohio
valiey during the 4th, causing the tempera
ture to fall from 20° to 40° from the Gulf
States northward to tho lake regions. This
cold wave reached the Atlantic coast on the
sth, attended bv a fall of temperature of
from 20° to off 5 in the Middle Atlantic
Mason & Hamlin Pianos.
The new’ mode of piano construction, in
vented anil introduced by Mason & Hamlin
in 1882, is an assured success, tested and
proved, many of the l>est judges having pro
nounced it "the greatest improvement in
pianos of the century.” By ft musical tones
of remarkable brightness and purity are oli
tained, and tuning is required less than one
quarter as often as in the old system. An
illustrated catalogue, fully explaining the
improvements, will be sent fl ee to any ad

Thirteen Two-Cent Postage Stamps for
One Cent and a Quarter.
A report was in circulation through the
street the past few days that Appel &
Scliaul, the One Price Clothiers, were selling
for an advertisement thirteen two-cent
postage stamps for one cent and a quarter.
The report being quite freely circulated a
great number of people called at their store,
inquiring for the thirteen stamps for the
above mentioned price, at the same time
laying down 2c. on the counter and asked
how they were going to make the change,
whereupon the} were informed that they
could not of heard exactly right as the One
Price Clothiers do not object accommodat
ing any one by selling them thirteen 2c.
stamps for lc. and a quarter, not ljic, but
lc. and a quarter of a dollar, but what they
do object to is for you to go elsewhere and
pay more money for anything in the Cloth
ing, Hats, or Gents’ Furnishing Goods line
than they charge, especially when you get
the benefit of getting as good a fit as any
garment made to order, as they have a first
class tailor in the house for that purpose.

buttons contained in a glass jar on exhibi
tion at their store for a #ls suit and a gold
mounted silk umbrella, you are invited to
do so, as same will be counted by responsible
parties on May 8. Appel & Bciiaul, One
