Mrs. Wells spoke briefly regarding wom

“Why, ladies,” she said, ‘we are -00.000
strong. Just think of it! Say each of
these temperance mothers has a boy old

Then add the votes of the" 200,000 bus
bands, for of course you know we lead the
dear men and they always obey us, and
there is an army of 400,000 for' God, and

The use of impure and adulterated wine
at the sacrament was discussed. Tho union
in the strongest terms denounced the sacri

Peer., J. K. Brumiage, biblo colporteur,
and Rev. M. O. G. Minglcdorff, of Spring
field, were then introduced to the conven
tion and the former made a short but stir
ring address on woman's work. Several
others of the ck-rgv made short addresses
and the ladies applauded loudly.

LAST NIGHT'S MEETING.
A large and enthusiastic audience greeted
the "cold water'” orators last night. Every
seat in Masonic Hall was occupied, the
aisles filled and even the galleries were filled.
The exercises began with prayer by Rev. J.
W. Rogan, followed by the song “The
Sword of Bunker Hill,” sung as only Prof.
Beardslee can sing it.
Mr. Rogan spoke briefly. He was pleased,
he said, to co-operate with the Woman’s
Christian Temperance Union, and he compli
mented the ladies for the masterly maimer
in which they conducted this convention.
He alluded to the excellent reports received
by them from ail parts of the State aegard
ing temperance work. The union, he re
marked, nas a strong adversary to fight—
-210,000 manufacturers and selieas of the ac
cursed stuff, backed by millions of capital—
and it needs all the help that temperance
men and women can give. But, he asked,
who can withstand the pressure of 200.000
women, united in one earnest purpose, when
mast of us know that one woman always
has her own way, and accomplishes her ob
ject if she sets her mind on it. Mr. Rogan's
address was replete with strong and ad
mirably-made points, and it was received
with loud applause.
Rev. T. T. Christian, of Trinity church,
made a 5-minute’s speech: “If people,” he
said, “are protected from adulterated or
spoiled food, why not from the gresitest evil
in the world—the one affecting their health
the most.” He alluded to the saloon-keepers
in a kindly spirit, saying that he did not
purpose to abuse them, but rather to con
WHAT SALOON-KEEPERS CAN DO.
Mre. Chapin stepped forward and said
that she only was there to answer the ques
tion, “What will saloon-keepers do if they
quit their business,” which was sent in by a
saloon-keeper. She started off in a breezy
manner, saying that as the trade was not
one of God's it was not right. God never
made a man whom He is not able
to keep. “Quit the business,” she
said, “and rely on Him for help.
“It is a business of blood, and what mat
ters it if you gain tho whole world and lose
your own soul! lam sorry that all church
members do not live up to prohibition.
Wine on the table, on the sideboards—these
are the stepping stones to drunkenness.
These people are not the pillars of the
church—they aro merely pillar-shams.” She
condemned the liquor traffic in unmeasured
terms, drew graphic pictures of the suffer
ing caused by it to innocent women aud
children, and implored the men of the coun
try to rally around their homos and de
fend tiv m from the evil that seeks to de
Mrs. Wells made a short, address giving a
practical turn to the question, and spoke of
the immense sums spent for jails, peniten
tiaries, asylums, and the ruin and suffering
caused by the manufacture and sale of liquor.
She depicted the desolation wrought by the
traffic, and implored her hearers to enlist to
fight against it.
One of the officers of the convention re
cited two temperance selections, “How
Jamie Came Home” and “The Women of
Michigan’s Reply to the Liquor Sellers. ’>
They were rendered in an admirable man
ner, tho gestures and carefully modulated
tones doing full j ustice to the eloquent words.
THE CLOSING MEETING.
At the close of the meeting Miss Stokes,
in behalf of Mrs. Booz, Superintendent of
Forest City Juvenile Temple No 7, of this
city, who was too ill to be present, presented
Mi s. Sibley, Mrs. Chapin and Mrs. Wells
each with a handsome perfume casket, a gift
from the children. The recipients were
greatly surprised at this token of love and
remembrance, and responded feelingly.
Mrs. Chapin in turn presented Miss Stokes
with a beautiful perfume casket. The
audience applauded heartily and enjoyed
the presentation seemingly us much as either
the donors or recipients. After the bene
diction many remained to enjoy the refresh
ments provided by the ladies.
Mrs. Chapin will leave this morning for
Charleston for a brief rest. Tuesday she
will leave there for Mississippi to attend the
State convention, and thence North to ful
fill a number of lecture engagements. Mrs.
Wells leaves also to-day for Chattanooga.
Some of the delegates will remain in the
citv a day or two longer, but most of them
will leave on this morning’s trains for their
THE WORK IN NORTn CAROLINA.
A Morning News reporter in talking
with a number of delegates in regard to the
convention inquired of the North Carolina
representative what she thought of the ses
sion as a whole. “To tell you frankly,” she
said with a smile, “this work is rather new
ito me. It is the first convention I ever at
tended outside of my native State, and I
am hardly competent to judge. But I can
say that t am delighted with the interest
'manifested and the manner in which the
business is transacted. It seems to me noth
ing can withstand such a power
as that exerted by the union,
composed, as it is, of represenlatativo ladies
from all parts of your beautiful State. Mrs.
Sibley is a noble Christian woman, ami a
hard, earnest worker for our noble cause.
“How is the work progressing in North
“Grandly,” was the quick reply. “Our
State organization is about the same ago as
yours here, and last year’s convention was
file first one 1 ever attended. The cause is
gaining ground everywhere, and we
are greatly encouraged. We young
people are adding our mite
of influence to the work, too. lam glad to
see so many young ladies lierc at this con
vention, for you know, or ought to,” she
added,naively, "that whon the young ladies
become interested in any cause, in deep
earnest, it is bound to be a success.” The
reporter assented to this self-evident propo
sition aud inquired regarding tho member
ship in North Carolina.
“I hardly know. I flare say about the
same os here. There are some twenty-five
unions and fully 1,200 members. Next year
we hope to report double that membership.”
“Is high license endorsed by the North
Carolina Stuto union T’
“No, I believe not. lam sure of it. We
want prohibition —no half-way measure.
And the prospects are very favorable to
ward securing it. lam young in the work
yet, but am deeply interested in it. It is a
grand work for its women and I think we
shall triumph, aud soon, too!"

NEGRO CRACKSMAN CAUGHT.
“Black Cap” Maxwell in Jail for a York
Gilbert Maxwell alias “Black Cap,” a no
torious negro thief, was committed to jail
yesterday by Justice Waring Russell, Jr.,
for burglary. Maxwell has served several
sentences in jail and in the penitentiary,
and was released from tho chain-gang less
than a month ago.
One day last week he broke into John
Richards’ house in York street lane, be
tween Montgomery and West Broad streets,
and stole a watch and chain, a gold ring
and several suits of clothes. Richards is an
industrious, well-to-do colored man. While
he was away from home Maxwell
burst in the "door of his house and
prying open a trunk in which
Richards kept his clothes, took out all
he could carry. Richards reported his loss
to Justice Russell, and Detective Wettaer
hom took the case to work up. He suspected
Maxwell, and after shadowing him a day or
two became satisfied that he was Die man
he was after. Maxwell has an ugly reputa
tion, and on several occasions has given the
officers trouble. Detective Wetherhorn sent
for him yesterday from Justice Russell’s of

As soon as he stepped inside the office lie was
handcuffed :uid half an hour later was in
jail. He will be held to await the action of

Charleston, S. C., May 13—Charleston
captured another game from Savannah to
day, with hands down. The attendance
was not large, owing to the walk-over yes
terday. Up to the fifth inning the game
was very pretty, but after that Somers, who
was in the box for the visitors, gave out,
and was pounded unmercifully. Forsyth,
who pitched for Charleston, occupied the
l>ox for the second time this season, and al
though he was hit rather freely he showed
that there is something in him. He has
good control of the ball and a good delivery.

Matters of Money and Management
About Various Lines.
The Southern Express Company has
opened an office at Walterboro, S. C.
Greenville held a rousing railroad meeting
on "Wednesday. Mr. W. T. Williams, of
Griffin, stated to the people that if Green
ville will raise $10,OOi) that a road from
Macon to Greenville, a road from Griffin to
Greenville and a road from Birmingham to
Greenville, will be built by January, 1888.
Notes for half the amount were given at
once, and the remainder will be secured this
week. Greenville is jubilant over her bright
General Traveling Passenger Agent J. 1..
Adams, of the Savannah, Florida and Wes
tern railway, lias just issued some very
handsome colored posters printed in Span
ish for the Cuban business, advertising the
Plant system. The April Pointer, a railroad
magazine of travel, contains a full descrip
tion of this route, printed in both English
and Spanish. The map plate showing the
route of the Plant Steamship Line has been
changed to Spanish. These indicate that
the Cuban business is being gradually cap
tured by this system.
Hawkinsville and the Atlanta Road.
Hawkinsville has withdrawn its subscrip
tion of $39,000 to the Atlanta and Hawkins
ville railroad, because the projected line
does not run within twelve miles of that
place. It is now proposed to build a road to
Perry, a distance of twenty miles, and con
nect with the Central railroad system.
The citizens of Hawkinsville are in
hopes that the Central will extend
its line for that purpose; if not they will try
to get those who subscribed the $30,000 to
the Atlanta scheme to give their subscrip
tions toward building the road to Perry. A
committee from Hawkinsville held a con
ference recently with President Alexander
and he gave the committee encouragement,
that the Central will do what it can in that
Summer Traffic Increasing.
Formerly the advent of summer in the
South was the signal for the railroads to
take off one or m'ore trains and for all kinds
of business to indulge in a sort of siesta for
a month or two. The Savannah, Florida
and Western, however, takes a contrary
view of the case, and their business seems to
be increasing every summer. An extra
train has been put on, leaving Jacksonville
at about 5:15 p. m., and is a through train
for nearly 100 miles. Two summers ago no
sleepers went into Jacksonville. Now there
are two New York sleepers each way. The
passenger business for May, always” a light
month, has held up wonderfully,” and they
expect a gobcl summer’s travel. The Cuban
trade and travel is still large, and from
present indications will increase instead of
diminish during the summer months.
The Olivette is proving a very popular
steamer, and her accommodations are still
taxed heavily on every trip.
The Memphis and Charleston’s Lease.
The attempt by the Memphis and Charles
ton stockholders to break the lease held on
the road by the East Tennessee, Virginia
and Georgia people is causing considerable
stir in Tennessee railroad circles. The dis
satisfaction a rnong the Memphis and Charles
ton stockholders is not of recant origin, but
date 6 back to last fall, when the deal was
consummated by which the Richmond and
Danville scooped the East Tennessee system.
Under the terms of the deal all leased lines
were included, and, of course, the Memphis
and Charleston went in with the rest. The
stockholders were not pleased with this, and
when the policy of the Richmond
and Danville toward their line be
came known a month ago a howl
went up from the stockholders. They de
nounced the alliance and said it would
throttle their interests if carried out. Seeing
they were powerless to prevent it, so far as
opposition would go, they concluded to make
an effort to break the lease of the East Ten
nessee. They have at last arranged a plan
whereby they hope to succeed. They will
throw the matter into the hands of the
Federal courts and ask that a receiver be
appointed to fake charge of the line at once,
pending a decision of the courts. They will
begin the proceedings at once.
Henderson Wants a Railroad.
Henderson held a big railroad meeting
this week and adopted these resolutions:
Where. vs. We, the citizens of Henderson and
vicinity, feel that we cannot afford longer to be
without the advantages of a railroad in this age
of improvement; ana.
Whereas. We have heard of the probahle lo
cation of the said road four miles west of us;
therefore, be it
Resolved. That we earnestly desire that the
said Atlanta and Hawkinsville railroad be lo
cated through this place, and we pledge our
best efforts to secure the same by co-operating
with the authorities of said road in every possi
Resoived, That we complete our subscription
promised said road, and thereby comply with
the conditions imposed by Mr. Harris in order to
secure the benefit of his road.
Resolved. That it is our opiuion that the best
interest of the said road would be better served
by locating theii line through this place, ::s it
would more evenly divide that territory lying
between the Flint and Ocmulgee rivers, and
thereby control that country east of us, which
otherwise would contribute to the support of
another system of roads.
Resolved, That we regret to hear of this prob
able location of said road west of us. and would
ask the authorities of the road to make good
their promise to us. upon a proper compliance
on our part with the conditions named.
Dyspepsia and Torpid Liver.
Inscrance Department, )
Albany, N. Y., May 14, 1885. j
I have been a great sufferer from dyspep
sia, water brash, acid stomach and consti
pation for the last fifteen months. Some
time ago I read in one of Brandreth’s Calen
dars the case of a gentleman in Albany who
was cured of a similar affliction by Using
Allcock’s Porous Plasters. Knowing the
gentleman referred to in said calendar, I
purchased three—one I wore on the pit of
tiie stomach and two on my right side. I
wore them a week, then took a bath and re
moved the plasters. I washed the places
with cologne, nibbed them dry and then ap
plied fresh Allcock’s Porous Plasters. I
found my apietite and digestion much im
lmoved iii two weeks; in three weeks my
bowels became regular, and now, after using
the plasters for four weeks, I find myself
entirely cured. Nathaniel Hyatt.
