8 FOGAIHYSSECOND TRIAL 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 duced. 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 to murder. 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 moned. 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. THE JURY. John Volhner, James I). Helmly, Martin (1. Helmken, Jacob Kaiser, John T. Bird, Philip Y. (Hies, c., Leo Übele, James 8. Evans, John Sawyer, William It. Evans, . Isaiah R. Douglass, Thomas McFarlane. 1 At ft o’clock Mr. dußignon put up his ■first witness and he soon rested hi* case. ■Mr. Kieffer told about the same story that ■be did on the first trial. The defense, ex- Hpnined a number of witnesses, but scarcely new facts were brought out, except the defendant had a fit last Friday Kght. bMAt S o'clock Judge Adams asked the de- Bw to siujKuid until lhts morning. The BPkrors were sent to the Marshall House in charge of officers Jones Franklin and Lewis Endres, and the court took u recess until 9:30 this morning. THROUGH THE CITY. Items Gathered Here and There by the News Reporters. The Savannah Rifle Association will elect officers at its meeting this afternoon. Landmm Lodge, F. & A.

Miss Van Tassel Makes a Hit in “Kath leen Movourneen.” “Kathleen Mavouracen; or, tpt.. Patrick’s Eve,” wns tho bill which attracted a good lized audience to the theatre last night Miss Cora Von Tassel was tho “Kathleen O’Connor.” The piece excited considerable enthusiasm and the applause that greeted the final climax was heard almost to West Broad street. To-night tho company will produce “The Hidden Hand,” one of the greatest of all sensational dramas. It is taken from Mr*. South worth’s famous story. Miss Van Tassel will appear in a double role as “Archie,” a newsboy, and “Capitola,” an heiress, her best port. Mr. Edwin Young's negro character part is said to l>e fine. Mr. Hoyt's celebrated dog, Patsy, does a star part in the play. The company will close its engagement here to-morrow. AT THE COURTB. The Salas-Green Case Taken Up In the United States Court. The case of liamon Salas against Charles Green’s Son & Cos., action on alleged breach of contract, was taken up in the United States Circuit Court yesterday. There are several suits pending, which were originally brought In the City Court, but which were transferred. A motion was made to have tho suits remanded, on tho ground that the plaintiff is a citizen of Georgia. The defendant’* counsel, Messrs. Charlton & Muekall, objected to the motion, claiming tliat the plaintiff, who is a native of Spain, bus never i>oen naturalized. A certificate from a court, officer in Charleston was offered as evidence by the plaintiff's counsel, Messrs Denmark & Adams, but Judge Speer de cided that it ivus inadmissible and gave the plaintiff until to-morrow to secure a cer tified copy of the record, If there is any. CONVICTS BREAK LOOSE. Two of Them Quit the County’s Ser vice and Take to tho Woods. Within the past two days then' has been a lively time among the convicts at work on the Waters road, and two have tukou “leg bail.” One Was a white man who was help ing lay pipes, and the other a negro who was doing tho ditching. Tile latter broke Into thi' house of a colored man named Adam Houston and stole a suit of clothes whicli lie put on ovor his stripped suit, not forgetting to ornament his head with Houston's Bun day-go-to-mceting l>eaver. The white man oso obtained a suit of clothes from some 09 " and walked off. There Ls evidently something wanting in tlie management of 1 convict—seither bettor guards or more of them.

The attendance was not large in the morning, but in the afternoon the. number was greatly increased. Tie weather was exceedingly pleasant and there was no annoyance from the sand-flies. The shooting contests for the prizes were carried on with spirit, and afforded much enjoy ment, In strolling übout, the ground and in dancing the time passed quickly. Many remained to take the last tram to the city. All of the trains going out were crowded and a groat, manv drove out. It was esti mated that fully 500 visited the grounds during the day, Altogether the picnic was one of the best the Hussars ever held.

Parlor rifles were used and the most of the scores were very creditable. HOW THEY LIKED IT. 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 day. 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. Delegatee to the Diocesan Convention.

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 left. 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 made a line outfielder. Notwithstanding the errors charged, New Orleans played a fine fielding gam--, and gave Clarke a good record. The locals leave for Memphis to morrow evening. The score was: SAVANNAH. A.B. R. Ib. P.O. A. E.

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 and Charleston. 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. TEMPLARS AT WORK. Christian Temple Publicly Installs its Officers.

Full in formation will be found in another column. Formerly the square piano was generally used, notwithstanding it was always cum bersome and inconvenient, as compared with the more elegant upright piano. Undoubt edly this was because the former was best as a musical instrument. Improvements in the Upright Piano have latterly given it the nrefereuc \ One made by the Mason & Hamlin Company gives the upright still mere acceptance, lty an ingenious arrange ment the strings of the piano are fastened directly to the iron plate, dispensing with any intervention of wood. The result is more ixvfcct vibration of the strings, pro ducing more pure, refined, musical tones, and much greater durability, including free dom from liability to get so easily out of tunc. An Explanation. All stove manufacturers everywhere con struct their Hues on the sdme common prin ciple, and their one aim is to insure drafts that will make hot ovens to retain the heat. The general belief is that all tho plates and pieces should lit snugly, jvarticularly the oven doors, which arc tilled with usixistoH by some makers to better aid Ulis. Stoves like lovell iV Inttlmora’s Acorns and Farmer bills, in which the above points are strongly adhered to, and while there is no fault with chimneys, must and always do bake well.

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.
