SIXTY-FOUR NAMEB STRICKEN
FROM THE JURY LIST.
Cho Prisoner's Counsel Ask for a Con
tinuance of the Case, But Fall to Get
It -The Struggle for the Jury The
Trial Begun Last Night Very Little
New Evidence Expected to be Intro
The second trial of Thomas Fogarty, for
Shooting Edward J. Kieffer with intent to
tnnrder, was begun in the Superior Court
yesterday. Every inch of space in the gal
lery was taken. The same would have been
the ease down stairs had Judge Adams not
given orders to prevent the room from being
crowded. A large number of tales jurors
had been summoned aud the court was very
well filled as it was. To all apiiearances
there was no less interest in the case than
there was two weeks ago, when on Friday
morning, April 23, the boyish-looking pris
oner was arraigned for assault with intent
When the case was called Solicitor Gen
eral Fleming G. dußignon announced that
the State was ready. Mr. P. W. Meldlim,
who, with P. J. O'Connor. Esq., represented
the defendant, asked the indulgence of the
court for a short time, as some of hi-, wit
nesses had not arrived. After some delay
Judge Adams ordered attachments issued
for a witness named Paine and another
named Burns. Half an hour later the officer
returned and stated that one of tho wit
nesses was said to be in Florida, and the
other was also out of the city.
A CONTINUANCE ASKED FOR.
Mr. Moldrim then asked for a continu
ance until the June term upon an affidavit
made by Mr. Richard Fogarty, who de
clared that I Kith of tlie ul* cnt witnesses were
material, and that one in particular
had seen Tom fall in epileptic tits a number
of times. Mr. dußignon objected and cross
examined Mr. Fogarty as to what ho cx-
Svted to prove by Bums and Paine. Mr.
etdrim explained that tho father made
the affidavit because the son was not of
sound mind. The point was briefly argued
and the continuance was refused.
Then came the struggle for the jury.
Both sides were wary. The list contained
some excellent names, but there was a gen
eral impression that a got*! many would go
off for cause. When the list was called it
was discovered that nearly half a dozen
boys had been summoned. They were ex
cused, of course, in short order. Not a
single juror was sworn until John Voll
nicr’s name, the thirty-fourth was callod.
TWENTY OFF FOR CAUSE.
Twenty-three hud gone off for cause, tho
defense had struck seven and the State three.
Four out of every five of tho jurors called
said that they had formed and expressed
opinions from the reports they read in the
papers, and the most of them -aid that they
were prejudiced. About 1 o’clock the list
was exhausted and more hud to be sum
The court took a l-ecess until 3 o’clock.
It took nearly throe hours longer to get the
twelve men. Gradually, though, the panel
was filled up, and the seventy-sixth man who
was put up was accepted by both sides anil
made the full jury.

What Some People Said Yesterday
About Artesian Water.
The artesian water was turned on yester
day for about'an hour. The supply pipes
leading from the wells to the pumping
works leaked badly in several places, ami
tlie water was turned off until the leaks
could bo repair""!. This was done last night,
and it- will be turned on again some time to
A good many people drank Savannah
river water all day and thought all the time
that they were drinking artesian water.
The imagination is a great help in many
things and in others it is apt to lead .one
into grave errors if it is not watched closely.
At the Cotton Exchange in the afternoon a
well-known member, having read tlie an
nouncement that the artesian water would
lie furnished tlie city at an early
hour in the morning, and, not knowing that
the water works authorities had lieen unable
to carry out their programme, sampled the
water at the Exchange and pronounced it
superb artesian water, and wondered why
the city authorities hadn't resorted to arte
sian wells years ago. The fact was that he,
like everybody else, had drinking of
Savannah Aver water, and that, aided by
his imagination, made him just as happy aa
If he had been drinking artesian water.
Hundreds of people thought they were
drinking artesian water yesterday afternoon
and last night, and all sorts of things were
said about it. Home said it was just like Sa
vannah river water, which was true, hut
nearly everybody who did not
know that then- liad been a failure to con
nect at the pumping works, thought that it
was a little better or not so good, or it tested
different, or they could smell sulphur in it
or something of tlie sort. These people will
Vie pretty sure to find out to-day what they
ure talking about before they Say artesian
water to anybody.

The dfiUtijfc.'! Within One of Being
Shut Out Agfain by the Pelicans—The
Season to Open in Savannah To-
Morrow- -A New Pitcher Signed—The
Team to be Strengthened All Around.
Hie Savannah “aggregation” left New
Orleans after yesterday’s game, and will
reach home to-night. Tiie club has not been
a very encouraging success so far, but the
season is young yet, and there is ample time
to make up for all shortcomings.
The directors are working to strengthen
the team until it is able to play ball. W.
J. Gaul, a young Baltimore pitcher, was
signed yesterday, and will bo here to-mor
row. He comes highly recommended by
Hlu-eve, of last year’s Savannah team, and is
said to be very speedy and to have
perfect control of the ball. The team at
present is in a badly crippled condition.
Dallas, who was injured in Wednesday's
game, is laid up, Parker is sick, and Pike,
who has not yet fully recovered from the
injury he received in the Charleston games
lx-tore the season opened, is tho only catcher
The directors are on the lookout for new
men and are negotiating for one or two first
class players, whom they expect to sign in a
day or two. Adams, who was released Ixv
fore. the team went to Mem
phis, has been in practice ever
since bis release, and is doing good
work. He may ho re-signed. “Tricky”
Nichols is here awaiting the arrival of the
team, and will strengthen one of Its weakest
spots. By the end of next week the direc
tors hope to be in good shape.
The Charleston team will arrive to-night
and will play here to-morrow, Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday.
Almost a Shut Out.
New Orleans, May s.—After the first
two innings to-day New Orleans ran away
fr>m Savannah. The latter’s poor infield
playing, and the daring base running and
heavy slugging on the part of the locals gave
New Orleans the victory. Clarke, pitcher,
and Forrest, outfielder, made their first ap
pearance with the locals and created an ex
cellent impression. Both hit tho ball hard.
Forrest is also a fine thrower. “Shorty”
Fuller and Dallas, who were hurt yesterday,
laid off. Pike cought (airly and Brennan
played a good short in the place of Powell.
Hutchinson playol miserable at short, but

SUNDAY BASH BALL.
Tho Savannah Team to be Indicted by
a Nashville Grand Jury.
Judge Ridley, of tho Nashville Criminal
Court, has instructed his grand jury to in
dict the members of the Nashville and Sa
vannah base ball duhs and tho officers ami
directors of the Nashville Base Ball Associa
tion for violating the State law April 24.
The legislature iiussed a law two years ago
making the playing of Wise hull mid similar
(tallies on Sunday a misdemeanor, ami sub
jecting oiTcndors to a Hue of not less than
t_~-' nor more tlmn After tho recent
Nashville gomic tho ministers and laymen
held a meet ing nn*i adopted resolutions de
manding' that stejjß be taken to prevent
game- , in Sunday.
In his charge to the jury Judge Ridley
said: “It is * v p cm; dutv to present
and indicl all persons who have been guilty
of this offense, and uot only ought the per
sons who actually played the game bo pre
sented and indicted, but officers and direc
tors of the association who hired and
directed the players to engage in the game
on Sunday are equally guilty, and ought to
be presented and indicted. It makes no dif
ference whether these officers and directors
were present at the playing of the game or
not if they hired ana employed the players
and sent them to the field to play. 1 hey
are guilty whether they were on the grounds
when the game was played or not. Further,
every person who attends a base ball game
on Sunday and pays a fee to see the game is
subject to indictment or presentment for
aiding and abetting, and are liable to the
same punishment as the officers and direc
tors and players.”
Judge liidley suggested to the grand jury
that the spectators might be allowed to go
without punishment, as probably' not one in
fifty knew he was violating the Jaw.
The Judge concluded his charge by saying
to the jury: “If you should determine to
indict spectators, then, by ail means, begin
with the intelligent class of the community,
paying your respects early to the Htate,
county and city officials, and leaving, if
anybody, the more ignorant colored people
and small boys to escape.”
The Memphis Umpire Row.
The Memphis papers do not altogether
uphold Manager Sueed in his accusations
against Umpire Diestel. The Avalanche
says that while Sneed’s action in scoring
Diestel was partly justifiable, he overdid the
matter in getting excited and accusing
Diestel of being a thief and robber and oth
erwise publicly insulting him. These are
some of the things that the Avalanche say s
about the matter: “The Memphis club had
things all their own way at the opening of
the season, and the first time it strikes a
snag there is a howl that resounds through
out the trees on the Arkansas side of the
river. The Avalanche believes the Mem
phis club the best one in the
Southern League, and that at the close of
the season it will have the pennant. But
when defeat comes as it did yesterday there
is no use doing the baby act "and cussin’ the
umpire, especially when the error column
shows up as it does. * * * That some
of Umpire Diestel’s decisions were dead
against Memphis there is no denying, but it
is too serious a matter to claim "that he did
it intentionally. Error of judgment is a
failing with all men.” It adds that the
Memphis club undoubtedly did some of the
poorest playing that was ever Seen there in
the Nashville games. Diestel will umpire
to-morrow's game here between Bavaunoh
Around the Bases.
The home team will have its handsome
new uniforms next week.
The Savannah team is expected to reach
home to-night, and will open the season hero
with Charleston to-morrow.
Charleston will have a ladies day to
morrow. Blackboards have heon erected,
and the Savannah-Charleston game here
will be reported in detail.
The Charlotte. N. C., club has offered the
Cofumbias, of Columbia, 8. C., SIOO to play
three games in Charlotte during the fire
mens’ tournament this month.

Formerly the square piano was generally
used, notwithstanding it was always cum
bersome and inconvenient, as compared with
the more elegant upright piano. Undoubt

Messrs. Myers Brothers & Cos. Again
Receive the Contract.
Yesterday afternoon Messrs. Myers Broth
ere & Cos. received notice that the Govern
ment contract for supplying the United
States Navy with tobacco had been awarded
to them for this year. This is a decided com
pliment to this enterprising house. Last
year there was quite a spirited contest over
the contract, Messrs, Buchanan & Lisle, of
New York, who had received it for a long
time previous, making a strong effort to
again secure it. Messrs. Myers Brothers &
Cos., however, entered the field against them,
and the superiority both of the facilities and
the goods of the Richmond firm enabled
them to carry off the palm, and the contract
came to a Southern house for the first time
in many years.
Securing this contract again this year is a
still greater triumph for Messre. Myers
Brothers & Cos., since they had eleven "bid
ders against tliern, including some of the
most prominent tobacconists in the country.
Of these four were from Richmond, two
from New York, Bucliannn & Lisle and P.
Lorillard; one from Petersburg and one
from the West. The fact that tne Messrs.
My-ers were again successful over all tin-so
competitors, speaks highly for the superior
quality of their manufactures.
This firm is one of the most enterprising
and best known in Richmond, and we are
glad to see that the Government recognizes
their merits. —Richmond (Va.) Whin.

H. My r ers & Bro., of this city, is a member
