THE LABT OF THE FILIBUSTERS.
Mayor Lester's Reply to the Governor
- Theory as to the Rumors’ Origin.
The filibustering scare ha* departed into
the same unknown realms whence the yel
low fever scare has taken flight, and it has
left behind, it nothing but a few brief pages
of official correspondence to tell that it evqr
was. These will soon lie fl'ed away in the
dusty pigeon holes of the public archive,
and then the immense expedition which was
to have invaded foreign territory and done
marvelous deeds of daring and devil
ment will be a thing of the
past. It is now a certainty
that the. filibustering expedition
originated in the fertile imagination of some
quixotic individual who should have
charged upon himself if he wanted to con
quer a windmill. His fevered brain caused
any amount of trouble to American author
ities, national, State and municipal, and
had Savannah advertised as a birth-place
and nest of a ilaugerous organization.
Mayor Lester suggested that the whole
matter may have originated with a pleasure
excursion. About a month ago a number
of Savannah gentlemen took a trip to Nas
sau in a pilot boat and the Mayor thought
that they may have been sighted somewhere
and put down as the advance guard of a
more powerful force to follow.
The Mayor has written bis reply to J. T.
Nesbit, Esq., Secretary of the Executive
Department of State, who, in obedience to
the request of the Governor, asked Mayor
Lester to investigate the rumors concern
ing the expedition. The Mayor said that ho
has made a thorough investigation of ail
the rumor* and can find nothing that would
give them foundation, but he promises that
should anything further come to his knowl
edge he would at once advise Mr. Nisbit.
THE FORDS’ BUCCSSB.
Their Third Performance of the Season
The third performance of the Ford Dra
matic Association will be given at the thea
tre to-morrow night, when the charming
comedy of “Home” will be presented. The
members of this favorite amateur associa
tion should receive the substantial aid of
their fellow: citizens, and it eun be given in
no better way than by becoming associate
members. With from 100 to 150 members
the association could readily guarantee a
certain number of performances during the
year and give each member reserved seats
tor the entire season, which cannot be done
with a smaller number.
It is hoped that the ladies who honor the
performances of the Fords with their pres
ence will comply with the re
quest of the management and not
wear hats, especially high ones. If
there is anything that mars one's enjoyment
at places of public amusement, it is the
abominable fashion of wearing headgear
which obstructs the view of the stage and
keeps people in the audience dodging their
heads from side to side in order to see what
is going on. If ladies have nothing to wear
except tall hats, let them leave them at
home and go to the Theatre without hats.
The fair sex appeal- to muqh better ail vant
age without hats, unless they are bald, and
of course in that case they are not expected
to expose their misfortune.

Venus and Saturn Holding a Celestial
Levee this Month.
There is no more attractive spectacle in
sight from this planet at present than the
celestial levee that Venus is holding in the
evening sky, with the assistance of Saturn
and those famous brothers, Castor and Pol
lux. Venus is at present west of Saturn.
Watch them for four or five evenings to
come. Venus will siowlv approach Saturn
and pass to the east of him. Venus is be
yond all comparison the brightest of the
group, yet Saturn is some 750 times as large
as Venus. But he is upward of
ten times as far from the earth as
Venus is, and proportionately still further
from the sun. mid it is the combination of
these things that makes his light so pale in
comparison with her- Both of the planets
ontshine their companions, Castor and Pol
lux, and here again the element of distance
comes in to mislead. The fact is, if Castor
and Pollux were as near to us as either
Venus or Saturn they would turn night
into day upon the earth, for they are suns,

BEGINS ANOTHER TAX FIGHT.
The McGowan-Kine Triangular Case
Decided - The Fogarty Case Peremp
torily Set for Monday Next—An Anti-
Dust Fight Fines for Keeping
Another of tho old tax fights is on now,
the Savannah Mutual Loan Association
being the cause thereof, the action being
against Tax Collector J. J. McGowan.
The association filed a bill in equity in
which it states that it made its tax return
for the year 1886 to the Receiver of Tax Re
turns of Chatham county in the month of
July. 1886: that the retiu n showed the total
number of shares in the association to be
600, upon 406 of which advances or loans
had been made, leaving 194 shares not bor
rowed on; that on each of the said
194 shares the sum of $305 had
been paid which made the sum of $59,-
170, upon which no advance had been made;
that out of the funds of the association,
including the $59,! 70. the sum of $28,853 50
had been loaned on property other than real
estate, and the rest of the capital ha/1 been
advanced or loaned on real estate noon
which the real estate tax is paid In addi
tion to this the association returned $l5O
worth of real estate and four town lots
worth $7,025. The association returned as
taxable property the $28,853 50 and the live
pieces of real estate, making a total value
of $36,628 50, and tendered the taxes on that
amount. The reo-irer of taxes refused to
accept the taxes tendered, and changed the
return so that it included the whole
capital stock of the association.
He issued an execution and placed it in
the hands of Sheriff Ronan, to soli certain
property belonging to the association. The
bill asked lor relief, also for an injunction
restraining the Collector, J. J. McGowan,

in the matter. Tne court issued a restrain

THE MEMPHIANS' OFF DAY.
The Pelicans Do Them Up to the Tune
of 16 to 4.
New Orleans, June 14.—Memphis was
badly rattled to-day. Smith was hit Imrd,
Phelan was hurt, Peltz was lame and I*de
was sent off the field by Manager Force,
McKeough going to short and Force to
third. After Phelan was hurt Doyle was re
called amidst applause, and Force played
second. New Orleans took courage from
the mishaps of Monqihis and played a bril
liant game in every way. The
slugging at times was terrific, the
base running daring in the extreme, and
the fielding excellent. Pujol made an easy
mull' in centre but redeemed himself by a
fine fly catch, making a double play of it by
throwing a runner out at the piate. Somers
pitched a strong game, although he was hit
hard at times, and Mcvey gave him mag
nificent support. Neither Crotty • nor the
rest of the nine gave Smith much’ help and
he pitched uuuer disheartening cu*eum
stanoes.There Was no kickingaguiust the um
pire to-day. The nine will play off the jiost
posfced gaine to-morrow. Illaek and Ewing

branch of the Savannah, Dublin anil West

Flying rumors concerning the South Caro

arc hints ot new deals advantageous traffic

The question of changing the Eastern ter
minus of tlie Buena Vista and Ellaville rail
road from Andersonville to Americus was
fully and Anally settled at a meeting of the
directors of the rent, held in Buena \ ista
Saturday. .All doubt in regard to the mat
ter has vanished, and Americus, with her
characteristic pluck, energy and determina
t ion has at last secured the valuahle prize
for which she has so long wanted and
waited. The vote in favor of changing the
terminus from Andersonville to Americus
was 1,400 to 00.
The South Georgia and Florida.
The Macon Construction Company held a
meeting on Monday. Some of the members
of the company thought that as there were
some who had not yet paid their 10 per
cent, of the subscribed stock the company
was not sufficiently organized, and there
was also some objection to the general man
ager. secretary and treasurer and attorney
being on the board of directors. At the
meeting those officers resigned their places
on the board aud in their stead were elected
Dr. Joint Ingalls, Mr. Virgil Powers and
Mr. W. W. Collins. Messrs. Lane as gen
eral manager, Jewett as secretary and
treasurer and (Justin as attorney, "retain
their offices as first elected. Mr. ft. J. La
mar, Jr., was elected Vice President of the
road. Fifty thousand dollars of the capital
stock of the Construction Company was
paid in. The contract for bridging, tressel
ing and crossties was awarded to Messrs.
Piltman & Baker, of Thomasville.
For Rickets, Marasmus, and Wasting

Scott’s Emulsion of Pure Cod Liver Oil with
Hypophosphites is unequalod. The rapidity
with which children gain flesh and strength
upon it is very wonderful. Read the follow

of rickets and marasmus of long standing,
and have been more than pleased with the
results, as in every case the inmrovement

Ladies’ Sailing Day.
While the ladies of Savannah admire the
good points of the Jennie S. and the Zinga,
they will not soon forget how the yacht
with Ludden & Bates S. M. H. painted on its
sail walked away from them both at the
last rare, and there is no doubt of Capt.
Brown's getting all the ballast in the shape
of fail - ladies for tomorrow’s race that ue
may want. The indications point not only
to a pleasant, but an' exciting race for boats
which will compete for the prizes in their

an article by H. A. Hare, M. D., University

on Salivary ana Gastric Digestion,” giving
tabulated results of practical experiments

varies from lm. 30s. to 1 hour 55m. l‘Js.. and
the “Tannhaeuser” brand of the Bergner &
Engel Brewing Companv occupies the proud
position of first place. In these days of in
digestion and dyspepsia a man ought to be
careful what he drinks. We shall always!

etc., damaged by water at bislate fire, to
the store, Hi 1-‘J Broughton street, opposite
Lud.len & Bates, where he proposes to sell
all of these goods regardless of
cost and value during the uext
four weeks. The reputation Mr. Stern
berg bears, and the fine lines of
goods ho sells, will, no doubt, insure him a
speedy sale, as he does not intend to carry

slightly soiled, and here is a good opportu
