CHARLES BLUN CAUGHT.
A GEORGIA FUGITIVE ARRESTED
IN NEW YORK.
The Ex-Secretary of the Progress
Social and Literary Club Nabbed
by Inspector Byrnes on an Executive
Warrant and Turned Over to
Detective Wetherhorn —To Be
Brought Back to Savannah and
Sentenced for a Misdemeanor.
Charles S. Blun, who was convicted in the
Superior Court at the October term of keep
ing a gambling house, and who jumped his
bond and fied, pending sentence, was ar
rested in New York yesterday by Inspector
Bvmes on a requisition granted by Gov.
Hill, and will be brought back here on the
Steamship City of Savannah which leaves
New York to-day.
Blun was Secretary of the Progress Social
and Literary Club, and was charged with
keeping a gambling room. He was indicted
by the grand jury and was tried and con
victed of a misdemeanor. Pending sentence
bv the court he skipped and went to New
York, where he has been most of the time
since. His bond was forfeited and his
bondsmen had to account for his failure to
appear when the time came for him to be
The extreme penalty for keeping a gamb
ling house is SI,OOO fine, imprisonment not
to exceed six months, or twelve months on
the chain-gang. Blun did not relish the
idea of submitting to either, and he left his
bondsmen to look out tor themselves. His
•whereabouts in New York were pretty
well known, and recently Gov. Gor
don issued a requisition on Gov.
Hill for his arrest and delivery to the
Georgia authorities. Gov. Hill' at first
declined to issue an executive warrant on
the ground that in misdemeanor cases it is
an unusual proceeding. He asked for proof
of Blun's conviction, which was furnished
by Solicitor General dußignon, and finally
it was issued.
Detective Wetherhorn went to New York
last week, ami in a short time had his man
under shadow. He was arrested yesterday
and turned over by Inspector Byrnes to De
tective Wetherhorn, who -will leave New
York this afternoon unless a hearing is de
UNDER A PUSHER.
ABdrew B. Pacetti Crushed to Death
by a Locomotive.
A fatal accident occurred at the Gwinnett
street crossing of the Savannah, Florida and
Western railway at 0:30 o’clock yesterday
morning. Andrew B. Pacetti had driven his
cows to pasture and was returning home,
walking on the track of the railroad. A
freight train pulled in and Pacetti stepped
to the next track to allow it to pass. The
pusher was on the track to which tie moved,
and he was standing a sh< irt distance behind
it. When the freight had left the switches
clear the pusher started to back down, but
Pacetti did not see or hear it- He was
struck and knocked down, falling with his
body across the rail and two wheels ran over
and crushed him. The men about the yard
called to Engineer W. D. Austin that there
was a man under his engine and he put on
his brakes promptly, but Pacetti was dead
before the engine stopped.
Coroner Dixon was notified, and he re
moved the body to Pacetti’s late residence
on Gaston and Price streets and sum
moned a jury for the inquest. The testi
mony given at the investigation was con
flicting in its nature. Five railroad men
were examined, and they testified that some
of them, seeing Pacetti’s danger, called to
him to jump, but when he saw the pusher
so nearly upon him he became confused,
and stood in his tracks until he
was knocked down. They, and engineer
Austin, swore that the bell ’of the locomo
tive was rung before the engine started and
while it was moving, but other witnesses
who were examined testified that no bell
was rung. The evidence of the latter seemed
to have had more weight with the jury, for
its verdict was that Pacetti’s death was the
result of carelessness on the part of the
Pacetti was a white man 58 years old. He
leaves a widow and six children.
THE WRECK AT RANTtAvLES.
The Track Cleared and Trains Again
Running on Time.
The blockade on the Charleston and Sa
vannah railway, caused by the wreck four
miles south of Rantowles Station, of the
north bound express, which left Savannah
at 7 o'clock Tuesday evening, was cleared
away yesterday. The accident, as stated in
yesterday’s Morning News, was caused by
a broken axle under tho tender.
The engine punt'd loose from the train and
dragged along the track for a distance of a
quarter of a mile. There were four coaches
in the train, all of which, without being un
coupled from each other, were derailed and
turned completely over off the track.
The engineer stuck to his post, but
the fireman jumped from the engine and
narrowly escaped being kill 'd by the over
turned mail car. Mr. Gahagan, route
agent, and his assistant, Murray, were both
imprisoned in their car, but were liberated,
having received a few slight bruises. None
of the passengers were injured. As soon as
the news of tbe accident was received in
Charleston a i-elief train was sent out and
the passengers were transferred. A track
was built Ri-ound the wreck until the main
track could be cleaned. Trains came through
on time yesterday.

THE FORDS IN •'PINK DOMINOES."
The Association's Greatest Comedy
Success A Fine Audience.
“Pink Dominoes'’ is undoubtedly the
Fords greatest comedy success. It was
played last night before one of the finest
audiences that the association has ever had.
It was a success last year, but nothing com
pared with last night.
‘‘Uncle Joskin Tubbs'” experience, a night
out in London, is about all there is in the
play. Larry Doyle got ou“ of Uncle Joskin
one" of the funniest and most laugh
able conceptions possible to be pro
duoed. His characterization of the
sly old Londoner surpassed all of his
former efforts. His adventures with the
pretty servant girl,‘'Rebecca,*'at the bal
masque, in the second act. provoked shouts
of laughter, and his scene after the supper
with his nephew, “Henry,’' formed n most
ludicrous situation. Almost the entire in
terest in the piece centres around “Uncle
Joskin," and the part could hardly have
been better played.
Lawrence Hanley as “Charles Graythom,"
and Thomas F. McCabe as "Sir Percy \Vag
stalf,” whose wives get mixed. Joseph F.
Doyle as “Henry,” William Fleming as
“Brisket” the übiquitous head waiter, with
Miss Baker as “Lady Wagstaff,” Miss
Maedcr as “Mrs. Graythom.” Miss Farrer
as “Mi-8. Tub!and" Miss White as “Re
becca,” were the support.
Mr. Hanley and Mr. McCabe, in their con
ception of the simple and easily duped
husbands, were accorded generous applause.
Mr. Joe Doyle’s first ex|ierience out, his
unexpected meeting with his “Uncle Joskin”
at the bal masque, and. his experience with
his two uunts, kept the audience continually
in laughter. Mr. Fleming's conception of
the haughty head waiter was excellent.
Miss Clara Baker ns ‘Truly Wagstaff,”
was the favorite, and she was repeatedly
applauded. Miss Whitf's “Rebecca” was a
capital conception, and by song and dance
specialties won for herself an encore and a
beautiful bouquet of flowers from an admir
ing Ford. Miss Maeder and Miss Farrer had
not so much to do, but their parts were well
The Fords have never yet given a better
comedy performance than they gave last
night. The play will be repeated this after
noon and to -nignt. The matinee perform
ance will begin at 8 o’clock.
Preparations for the Fourth of July
Regatta at Thunderbolt.
At a meeting of the stewards of the Sa
vannah Yacht Club, held at the office of
Mr. M. A. Cohen yesterday, the details of
the Fourth of July regatta were mapped
out. Messrs. Wallace Cummiilg, W. G.
Morrell, and John S. Schley were appointed
a committee in charge of the arrangements.
Prizes will be awarded as follows: J.Y) to
first class, SSO to third, $25 to fourth, and
$25 to fifth. The race will be sailed from
Thunderbolt over the usual course, instead
of from Montgomery, and the steamer
Pope Catlin has been chartered to
accompany the boats in the race. The
South Carolina Yacht Club of Charleston
has been invited to lie present, and doubt
less some of the boats of that club will be
entered. The stewards decided that a mem
ber of the club would not be required in
each bunt, so outsiders who may lie invited
will sail with their own crews alone and no
entrance fee will be required.

Torpedo on a Car Track.
The placing of torpedoes and cartridges
on street car trades has, within the past few

Memphis Rounds up the Carolinians to
. the Tune of 10 to 2.
Meyithis, Tew., June 22.—About 700
people gathered this afternoon to witness
the first game of the series to be played
here between Memphis and Charleston.
Neither club scored during the first three
innings, but in the fourth inning the locals
commenced bitting Huneler and knocked
out five runs which t.hey followed up in the
next liming with six more. The visitors
were unable to retaliate and the gome
proved an easy victory for Memphis. Smith
and Crottv were the battery for Memphis
and Hungler and Hines for Charleston.

New Orleans Doubles Birmingham.
New Orleans, June 22.—Birmingham
opened here on wet grounds to-day. New
Orleans, outside of Klusman, played a fine
fielding game and batted hard enough at
critical times to win. Campau’s hitting and
base mulling, a three-bagger by Geiss,
which brought two men in, and Powell’s
magnificent fielding in the pitcher’s position,
were features. Birmingham made a re
spectable showing outside of Keut, but
could not hit the ball often enough.
Diestel’s fly catches, Fuller’s base running
and Hayes’ short stop work were worth
special mention. Dugan, the new second
baseman for the visitors, was so fresh that
ho was guyed constantly, but he is a ball
player. E mpire Schroeder was not satis

POINTS ABOUT TERRAPIN.
Some Facts Presented by Dr. Oemler
for the Consideration of the Georgia
Wilmington Island, June 30. — Editor
Morning News: Being peculiarly favor
ably located to note the rapid decrease of
the number of terrapin in our waters, I
have long been impressed with the necessity
of preventing their total cxtJnctipn tty legal
protection. For some 1 after the war
their heads could lie frequently counted by
the dozen above the water during the laying
season. Coming ashore at high tide to de
posit their eggs I have known them to
‘‘crawl” under my house. Now a terrapin
nest on this island would bo aliout as rare a
find as that of the proverbial mare. For
the past four years I have not seen terrapin
enough at any one time, in or out of the
water, to make a stew for a small family.
Those you mention as being taken to market
from Savannah to the value of SIO,OOO to
815,000 are not captured in Georgia, hut in
South Carolina; it no longer pays the fisher
men to draw their seines m GeoYgia waters,
as practically they are here already extinct.
Southern terrapin “counts,” as full-grown
females measuring six inches on the lower
shell, are sometimes, when in good con
dition, worth from $9 to $lB per dozen,
Delaware terrapin reaching as high as $36.
Of course the enormous outrage against
political economy, in the senseless destruc
tion of so valuable an animal, and the in
cidental decrease of food supply, will be the
chief consideration with our legislators, but
there is another crying shame m connection
with the unseasonable capture you mention.
The terrapin is an aquatic animal mid when
housed, or penned, during spring or summer
(when a great many die), out of their natural
elements, who can tell the amount of agony
they endure! Your humane and sympathetic
readers may form an idea when I state that,
calling upon one of the fish dealers during
the winter session of the Legislature to ask
his approval of a bill I had drawn (and
afterwanis sent to the Sujierintendeiit of
Fisheries) he informed me he had only the
day before made a purchase of many dozen
terrapin from which he had to wash the
maggots liefore he could ship them.
Flies had deposited their eggs on sores
caused by sand getting into the recesses of
the siieil into which the animal withdraws
its legs. The wife of one of the fishermen
told me when rats get into a pen the first
part attacked are the eyes, she having been
aa eye-witness to tne fact.
Permit me to say, you are not quite just
to the general intelligence of the dealers.
With a single exception, I have yet to meet
the individual, pecuniarily interested in ter
rapin, be ho dealer or fisherman, who does
not cordially approve the bill I have drawn.
But even if fishermen and dealers were less
wise and wanted to kill the goose that lays
the golden eggs, 1 should still contend it to
be the duty of our legislators to protect the
future into rest of the public by preserving
so valuable an animal and to abate so cry
ing n shame to humanity.
About, a fortnight ago the Superintendent
of Fisheries paid me a visit here, when lie
renewed his promise to exert all the influ
ence he could bring to bear for the passage
of the hill.
As soon as I'learn of Cant. Gordon’s re
turn from New York I will visit the city
for the purpose of bringing about, if possi
ble. a conference between parties interested
and our delegation to the Legislature.

On a Michigan Central train the other

without the juice runs down on his shirt
“Shoo! but I want two or three, Hanner,”
“You behave yourself? You want to
get cramps and raise a great row, don’t
The boy soon returned with boxed figs,
and the old man beckoned to him and began
to lick his chops.
“Pass right on!’’ said the woman to the
boy. “He hain't eat a fig for thirty years,
and I guess'he can go thirty more."
The Doy passed on and returned with pea
nuts. The old man was ready for him, but
the wife protested:
“He can’t oat ’em. It’s been ten years
since he had a tdoth in his head, and he’d
have to swallow ’em whole. No, Reuben,
you let peanuts alone.”
Twenty minutes later the boy was back
with candy packages in which there were
prizes, and the old man exclaimed:
“I’ll hev one o’ them or—bust!”
“Then you'll bust,” she replied as she mo

Another Consumption Cure.
From the P.iris News.
Considerable sensation has been created
in medical circles in Vienna by the discovery
of a supposed cure for consumption and
other tubercular affections of the lungs or
other parts of the body. The discoverer is
Dr. Kolischer, a young operator in the clin
ical department of Prof. Albert. Dr. Kol
ischer, starting on the assumption that tu
berculosis occasionally heals naturally,
owing to the tuberrulos becoming calcined,
hit upon the idea of artificial calcination by
means of hypodermic injections of a com
pound described as “calcium phosphoricum”
mto the limbs of persons affected with local
tuberculosis. He made a number of exper
iments with a view to testing his discovery,
and in every case the experiments turned
out successful. At the last meeting; of the
Vienna Society of Physicians Dr. Kolischer
read a paper on the result of his experi
ments and introduced to the meeting sev
eral persons who had been cured by his

JAY GOULD'S NEW CAB.
The Largest and Heaviest Ever Turned
Out of the Pullman Shops.
Until three weeks ago, says the New York
Sun, Millionaire Jay Gould has not had the
luxury of having a private railway car as
his own individual property. Heretofore
he had used the old Union Pacific car
Convoy, the property of the railway com
pany, and reserved for the use of the presi
dent and directors, but as a matter or fact
used almost exclusively by Mr. Gould in his
long flying leaps from one end of the conti
nent to the other.
But the Convoy has been assigned to a
back seat now, and in its place has come
fresh from the Pullman shops and resplend
ent in all the glory of polished woods and
glittering mirrors,’ the beautiful car Ata
lanta, named for Mr. Gould’s fleet-footed
yacht, and, like the yacht, Mr. Gould’s
private property. The Atalanta was turned
out of the Pullman shops in Chicago three
weeks ago and brought to the Pensylvania
railway station in Jersey City, where it now
stands. Mr. Gould has not yet seen his new
purchase. It was completed just after he
set out on his recent yacht voyage, and its
“owner has not yet had opportunity to in
The Atalanta is remarkable in that it is
by half a foot the longest car ever turned
out of the Pullman shops. It is 70 feet long
and weighs 78.000 pounds. The average
weight of the Pullman cars is 75,000 pounds.
The Atalanta rests on six-wheel trucks, the
wheels being of paper and 42 inches in
diameter. It was Mr. Gould’s direction
that special pains should be taken to give
the car strength and steadiness of motion,
and everything to this end that modem
ingenuity has devised was turned to account
in its construction.
The interior appointments of the Atalanta
are remarkable tor their massive richness
and total freedom from garish display. In
one end of the car is the observation room.
This is an apartment 11 feet 6 inches in
length by 9 feet in width. It is furnished
with two easy chairs and a sofa upholstered
in bronze silk plush, and is covered by a
thick velvet carpet. On the sides are racks
for wTaps, and over the sofa an upper
berth is tucked away so deeply into the
bulkhead as to be hardly noticeab’le, but it
can be let down and made into a comfort
able bed. The door out of the observation
room opens into a private bedroom, which
in turn opens bv double sliding doors into a
second private bedroom. Both these rooms
are furnished with folding beds and
have private toilet rooms. When
the sliding doors are thrown open the room
makes a handsome parlor 18 feet in length
by 7in width. It is finished in sat in wood
and is upholstered in blue silk plush. The
observation room is furnished in mahogany.
Back of the private bed rooms comes the
dining room finished in heavily carved oak,
and upholstered, like the observation room,
in br'onzc silk plush. The dining room is 14
feet long by 9 m width. In the centre is an
oaken extension table, and the bulkhead
separating it from the next apartment is
richly carved in open spindle work. This
next apartment simply contains, one on
each side of the car, two ordinary Pullman
sleeping berths. After this apartment
conies a toilet room, a refrigerator, two
berths for a porter and cook, and the kitchen.
The ends of the car are furnished with

Advice to Mothers.
Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup should
always be used when children are cutting
teeth. It relieves the little suffer at once; it
produces natural, quiet sleep by relieving
the child from pain and tho little cherub
awakes as “bright as a button.”
It is very pleasant to taste. It soothes the
child, softens the gums, allays all pain, re
lieves wind, regulates the bowels, and is the
best known remedy for diarrhoea, whether
arising from teething or other causes. 25
cents tx bottle.
