FOGARTY FALLS IX A FIT.
THE PRISONER’S ACTIONS CAUSE
A BREAK IN HIS TRIAL.
He Rolls from His Chair and is Taken
Out of the Court Room by Force-
Doctors Apply Tests to Determine
Whether His Illness is Feigned or
Real -The Court Adjourned Until the
Prisoner Recovers - Sensational Fea
tures of the Trial.
At 8:30 yesterday fioming the trial of
Thomas Fogarty for shooting Edward J.
tueffer with intent to kill was resumed in
the Superior Court. There were even more
Ipectators present than on the day before,
tnd quite as many as at any time during the
Mr. Meldrim for the defendant resumed
Ihe examination of his witnesses, calling
among others Mr. Richard Fogarty and Mrs.
Fogarty. Their evidence was substantially
the same as on the first trial, except that
they mentioned that their son has had one
epileptic attack since the mistrial. A cousin
of the prisoner's testified that he has a
brother in an asylum at Binghamton,N. Y.,
where he was sent because of insanity re
sulting from epilepsy.
MAYOR LESTER’S TESTIMONY.
Mayor Rufus E. Lester was put on the
stand to testify to what Kieffer said in the
Police Court on the morning before the
shooting. On the former trial it was stated
that Mr. Kieffer said in the Police Court
that he would have shot Fogarty if he had
had a pistol when the youth abused Mrs.
Kieffer. Mr. Kieffer denied having made
such a statement. Col. Lester stated that
to the best of his belief Kieffer said he
ought to haveshot Fogarty. “Mr. Abrams,
however, who represented him, took down
the evidence, and probably lias the language
in his notes.”
The Mayor said in reply to a question by
the Solicitor that Fogarty made an excnlpa
' torv statement before him, and did not so
far as he could see show evidence of insanity.
THE PRISONER'S THREAT.
J. J. Abrams. Esq., was put on the stand
by the State and questioned about the evi
denc-e in the police court when Fogarty was
tried for disorderly conduct. Mr. Abrams
read fidin his notes the following statement,
■which he said Kieffer made: “Someone
ought to have taken a pistol and shot me
> for not. resenting the insult to my wife. I
sorry 1 did not go down stairs.”
One of the last witnesses called by the de
fense was Dr. J. J. Waring. His cross-ex
amination was the breeziest incident of the
trial up to that time. Mr. dußignon asked:
“Doctor, did I not understand you to say on
the former trial that every epileptic is more
or less insane and dangerous to society, and
ought to be confined?”
“I did make such a statement,” the witness
NAPOLEON AN EPILEPTIC.
“On that trial I believe you said that Na
poleon Bonaparte and Julius Caisar were
“Do you think that Napoleon was tainted
■with insanity in any form?”
“I do, and 1 think he ought to have been
“Because of his insanity, or ambition”’
“I think insanity had much to do with
his erratic course,” and the doctor added
that he thought the Emperor should have
been confined as a man dangerous to so
“The friends of Napoleon are indebted to
you for that charitable opinion,” remarked
the Solicitor. The questions and replies fol
lowed rapidly and the examination was be
coming very lively when the Solicitor drop
ped the historical issue and returned to the
A DANOEROUS MAN.
“Did you consider Fogarty i dangerous
factor to society?” the witness was asked.
“Did you ever advise his father to have
him confined or removed”’
“As a good citizen wasn’t it your duty to
bo advise the father?”
“I do not go through the world reforming
it,” answered the witness tartly.
“I don’t think your worst enemy in this
community would accuse you of that,” com
mented the Solicitor.
A hypothetical question covering Fogar
ty’s case was then put to the witness, and
he was asked if he would say
that it was the act of a malicious man
In a violent passion, which was his reply on
the first trial. The witness replied that ho
would so consider such a case. The doctor
was then asked if he would swear that Fo
garty did not know right from wrong, and
be replied that ho would not so swear.
A TILT WITH A WITNESS.
There had appeared to be a little tempest
rising for several minutes between the wit
ness and the Solicitor, and at about this
point the witness, addressing the State’s rep
“Mr. dußignon, you are trying to send
this man to the penitentiary ami he should
not go. His place is in the lunatic asylum.
“Are you aware of the nature of the plea
in this case, and do you not know that his
counsel could have plead insanity and hail
this prisoner sent to the asylum?” the Solici
“No, 1 know nothing about that, but you
are trying to send him where he ought not
to go!” the doctor answered sharply.
“Since you are so kind as to volunteer
that statement I will ask you a question
which I did pot intend to ask. How much
do you expect to bo paid for your testi
EXPECTED TO BE PAID.
“I was summoned here by the defense to
testify to facts. I expect the county to pay
me for my evidence as an expert.”
“You are hugging a delusion, doctor.
The State won’t foot the bill.’’ Proceeding
■with the examination the Solicitor asked:
“Do you think this man ought to lie
turned loose on the community?”
“1 do not.”
“He is liable to shoot anv one, isn’t he?”
“Is not epilepsy one thing and epilectic
insanity another thing?”
“Is this man an epileptic or is he cpi
“He is an epileptic imbecile.”
IMBECILITY AND IDIOCY.
“Doctor, isn’t it true that. Imbecility is
but a form of idiocy, and when applied to
mental troubles doesn’t it moan an absence
“Isn’t it true then both of idiots and im
beciles of this order that they really com
mit overt acts f Are stupid and inert, and,
as a rule, nr.a satisfied to mope and drivel
their life away?”
“In some cases ibis is true.”
“Did yon ever encounter in your experi
ence or in medical works a case of an idiot
or imbecile with a homicidal mania?”
“I have,” was the reply. ,
He was then asknd if such a thing would
not he a monstrosity in medical jurispru
dence and replied that it would not.
FUN FOR THE SPECTATORS.
The spectators were eonsiderably enter
tained by the questions and the doctor’s
replies, and there was general comment as
to the effect the export testimony would
have upon the jury. Dr. Waring stated
that he hn.!-been reading up on epilepsy
sii.ee the first trial, and was therefore pre
pared to testify more positively than Wore.
The next incident and tlm chief one of the
day occurred when the court reconvened at
3:K) o’clock. Both sides had one or two
more witnesses, but ns they wore not pres
ent Mr. dußignon said lie would proceed to
state his luw ] mints.
FOGARTY HAS A FIT.
Just as he rose and started to speak the
prisoner uttered an unusual erv and fell
parti In his chair. His father, who was sit
ting near, sprang to catch tho youth. Mrs.
Focrsitv ana the prisoner’s aunt httrrted to
him. There was a great commotion among
the spectators, who were anxious to see
what was going on. Mr. dußignon asked
Sheriff Ronan to immediately send a mes
‘ senger for Dr. Duncan and Dr. Stone. Mr.
I Fogarty had Dr. Waring sent for.
| Before tho physicians came the prisoner
was held up for a minute or two in his
i chair. Some declared that he was dying.
‘T>‘t the jury see him! 1 ’ exclaimed one lady,
and holding up her hands said: “Where is
the jury that will convict him now?”
CARRIED OUT OF COURT.
He was quickly carried into the grand
jury room, not, however, before his mother
fainted. That increased the excitement.
All the doctors arrived close together. Dr.
Duncan lining the first. He applied the
candle test to Fogarty’s eyes to see if he was
conscious and they showed that they were
sensitive to light. The physician asked him
if he had a pain, and he replied that he had
one in his stomach.
After a brief delay Judge Adams decided
to continue the case until this morning at 8
o’clock. It is expected that the State will
put Dr. Duncan on the witness stand this
morning to testify whether the fit was real
or feigned. Dr. Waring will also prolwbly
be called if Dr. Duncan is examined. Dr.
Waring was reported to have said that the
tit was a mild one.
CRASHED INTO A BRIDGE.
The Steamer St. Nicholas Collides with
a Pier in St. Augustine Creek.
The steamer St. Nicholas, from Fernan
dina for Savannah, collided with the central
pier of the Savannah and Tybee railroad
draw bridge over St. Augustine creek on
Thursday night and stove in her starboard
wheel and upper deck. The steamer lay
where she struck until yesterday morning,
when she was towed up to the city.
The pier with which the steamer collided
is in the middle of the channel. The draw was
open leaving eighty feet dear on either side
of the pier for the vessel to pass through. The
collision occurred about 8 o’clock. The St.
Nicholas, alter rounding the point south of
the bridge, headed to pass through the draw
on the west side. The current was run
ning very strong and her officers say it
forced her upon the bridge. The vessel
struck tho heavy piling of the pier on her
starboard side with a tremeuduous crash,
tearing away a part of her upper deck and
forward staterooms and completely de
molishing her starboard wheel. Tho
passengers were taken off and
landed on the shore abutments but after
wards returned ou board and the steamer
hung on the pier ull night. She was hauled
off and brought up to the city yesterday by
the tags Winpenny and Maggie. The com
pany’s agent estimates her damage at SI,OOO.
The steamboat people say that had the pier
been properly protected by piles the dam
age to the vessel would have been loss.
Mai. Inn ess, contractor for the railroad,
stated to a Morning News reporter that
there is eighty feet space on either side of
the pier, which is ample room for the
steamer to pass through. The lights were
burning all right on both the draw pier and
the shore abutments, and ho was unable to
see that the railroad people are responsible
in any way for the accident. A part
of tho framework on top of the
piling was carried away in the collision and
the piling was bent in several places, so that
until the engineer can make a thorough ex
amination and determine the extent of the
damage, and whether or not the bridge is
safe, work on the east side of the creek will
lie suspended. Chief Engineer I’ostell is
out of the city but will be back to-day and
will make a thorough investigation. “ Maj.
Inness had a force of 175 laborers
ready to go to work on the Tybee end of the
road, and until tho bridge can be used the
most of this force will have to be laid off,
seriously delaying the completion of the
The damaged steamer is lying at her
wharf at the foot of Lincoln street. The

left last night for Fernandina.
PIONEER BRICK COMPANY.
Savannah Pushing? Ahead With Manu
The Pioneer Steam Brick Company is one
of Savannah’s newest manufacturing enter
prises. The company has already built ex-
works seven miles west of the city,
on the Central railroad, with a capacity
for turning out SO,OOO bricks a day, and as
soon as a charter can be obtained and the
company organized it will be ready for
business. A petition for incorporation was

FERST & CO.’S LOSS.

The damage from the fire at M. Ferst &

that the pile either foil over and the matches
were ignited by percussion or that they
were set on fire by rats.
Tho building is strongly and tightly shut

be set from the outside. It was well under

and the good judgment of Chief Fernandez

not be interfered with by the fire, and will

THE HOME CLUB’S RETURN.
The Base Ball Season to Open at Sa
The Savannah base bail team returned
home last night and will open the season
here with Charleston to-day. The club
left New Orleans after Thursday’s game
and was joined at Mobile by Manager Pow
ell and the Charleston team, and the tv o
came on together. They are quartered at
the Marshall House.
Savannah has beon unfortunate in its first
trip and lost nearly every game it played.
Notwithstanding this, Manager Morton
says that the team played better ball than it
has been given credit for playing. Of the
sixteen games that were played, he says the
club ought to have won at least seven, but
circumstances and umpires were against
them and they only got two. The only men
that have been released since the club
started out are Adams and Jones.
McArthur is still retained. The team, how
ever, is badly crippled. Parker is in
the New Orleans City Hospital sick
with pneumonia. Dallas was laid up from
injuries received early in the week, but is
recovering and will play to-day. Manager
Morton himself, who played in one of the
Mobile games, injured his' bund and is mi
able to handle a ball, and McArthur is just
recovering from a severe sprain.
In spite of its crippled condition the club
will piny Charleston to-day to win.
•‘Tricky” Nichols, who has been practicing
daily since lie arrived here will pitch, and
Dallas will receive his delivery. Smith
and Hint's will be the visotor’s battery.
To-day will be teulies' day at the park.
Ladies ill lx' admitted free to the grounds
and the grand stand. Both Savannah and
Charleston will put up their test
batteries and will play to win.
It will be the first time the
teams have come together since the league
season opened, end an opportunity will ho
afforded to see what improvement, has teen
made since the preliminary games which
were played here early in April. The game
will be called at 4 o’clock.
Manager Morton says that New Orleans
is one of the greatest base ball towns that
lie has ever visited. More jieople, he says,
attended one game there than were at all of
the twelve games together in Memphis,
Nashville and Mobile. Sunday games are
downed everywhere except in New Orleans.
The Mobile City t Yiuncil has prohibited them
there, and Nashville shutdown after the first
game. This will lessen the attendance at
both places, and will, of coins**, diminish the
receipt*. The league covers too much terri
tory, Manager Morton says, to ever suc
ceed. Thy expenses are too great and the
cities outside of New Orleans do not patron
ize the sport enough to make it pay.
Charleston Disappointed Too.
Charleston, May 3.--The cotton busi
ness hn* about come to an end here, and the
bulls and bears are now turning their atten
tion to base ball. Great disappointment is
fejt here in the Charleston team which, after
its walk over the Savannah team, was ex
pected to go on a triumphal march through
lie Hout!’. hut which,bn the contrary, his
rvt with disgraceful defeats nils around.
Efforts are making here to raise money to
strengthen the train, and its the club has no
resource: left the general public is called to
the rescue. The money will te raised
though, and the team will be strengthened
and then —we shall see what, we shall see.

FLOWER SHOW CLOSED.
LAST NIGHT OF THE FLORAL SO
The Judges to Announce the Awards
Next Week- The Exhibition a Great
Success and Attended by Crowds of
People—The Increasing Interest in
Floriculture Some of the Late Ex
All yesterday afternoon and last night
until a late hour the Flower and Art Show
was crowded with visitors. They repre
sented the culture of the city. There was
more to admire than on either of the two
preceding nights, and if the works of art
and the flowers could have heard all the
praise tliat was bestowed, every exhibit
would have been more vain than a baby in
its fli-st shoes.
All of the tables in the floral annex were
laden with beautiful cut flowers, fresh and
fragrant. Blushing roses, great meek-eyed
velvety pansies, waxen lilies, delicate pop
pies, pinks, verbenas, marigolds and a dozen
other kind* of cut blooms vied with one an
other in trying to Ion!; the loveliest. Bv ac
clamation the exhibition was voted an un
expected success. Numbers of the visitors
suggested tliat the show should be kept onen
another day. They were surprised at what
bail been accomplished, and praise was not
THE SHOW HIGHLY PRAISED.
Both departments, the floral and the art.
were spoken of as highly creditable. Some
time in the future the former, it is expected,
will outshine its present rival. Ever since
the show opened on Wednesday there was a
greater improvement in the display of
flowers than in the art department.
The interest of exhibitors iu the floral
feature grew up to the last moment. On the
second night there were prettier designs
and displays of cut flowers than on the first
night, and last night the designs, vases and
baskets of blooming annuals were much
lovelier than on the previous night. Three
baskets of cut blooms, roses, lilies, pinks
and other flowers, exhibited by Mr. A. S.
Nichols, were admired by all. On the same
table was a handsome pyramid of lilies,
baskets of pansies and hollyhocks, by Mr. J.
F. La Far, a vase of amaryllis blooms, by
Mrs. .T. G. Thomas, a basket of pansies, by
Mr. C. Y. Richardson.
SOME or THE NEW EXHIBITS.
Mrs. 8. P. Hamilton’s table was a mass of
lovely colors. She had several vases of cut
roses of beautiful lines and exquisite fra
grance. There was on the same table a
spike of lillies from Mr. Theodore Meves,
and another from Mrs. Thomas Henderson.
Among other very pretty exhibits were
some hollyhocks by Mrs. George W. Lamar;
poppies from the Telfair Hospital, pansies
try Mrs. J. C. LeHardy, a large bank of cut
roses, veritable beauties by Mr. Joseph
Maniamult, a basket of roses" and lillies by
Mr. Malcomb MaekLena and hollyhocks by
Mrs. W. S. Bowman.
Mr. J. Guerard Heyward exhibited tho
most beautiful collection of popnies, the
French coehlicottes. They were delicate in
color and the petals were very striking. Mr.
Heyward also exhibited an iris bloom (rare),
sonic nasturtiums, roses and pansies.
Mr. Alfred Chisholm displayed a vase of
handsome cut rose*.
THE FLORAL DISPLAY.
The professional florist? took in early in
the afternoon some new and beaui iful de
signs. Mr. Wagner liad a cross and crown
of white roses, fever-fews, pansies, dentins
and other blooms.
Mr. Oelschitr had a beautiful anchor, prin
cipally of white roses and ealla lilies, and
also “the vacant, chair.” made of centauas,
marigolds, pinks, verbenas and roses.
The professional florists were deserving of
special compliments for the designs which
they prepare*} and exhibited.
In this annex were also fresh strawber
ries from Mr. John F. Chailon and F. M.
Bliss, and jiecan nuts, waxbeans, new pota
toes, ex'" i laree rebh'gfw and other vegeta
bles and flowers by Mrs. .
The mounted doer’s head over the entrance
to the hall was exhibited by Mr. Martin
Tufts, the deer having been "killed close to
the city limits.
The following additional exhibits were
received during the day: Cushion of chenille
work by little Miss Emily Connor, 11 years
old; a piano cover by Miss A. Falligant,
bannerets bv Miss Jaiiie C. Haywood, pic

IV. XV. Rogers and a lambrequin by Miss
Mamie Strong, flowers from Mr. Fred
Myers, and embroidered handkerchief by
_Dttle Irene Patrol.
As last night closed the show, the several
committees had previously made the awards,
but they said thatjbeir decisions have to be
submitted to a meeting of the executive
officers. The awards, therefore, will not be
announcer', until next week.
THE COMMITTEES OF AWARD.
The committees ore:

The attendance at the show was good
throughout and the receipts will meet, the
expenses. The exhibition had a go*>l effect
in awakening interest in the society's work,
and about forty applications for member
ship were received. The next exhibition
will probably tie given in October.
One of the features of the exhibition was
the music which was furnished by Prof.
The Old and the New.
