AS, Stabs his Step-Father—
vct.rftUgnn Umbach’a Store.
Another stepson^int"ftvH— wake himself
notorious yesterday by assaulting his step
father and attempting to kill him. This
youth is a negro named Clarence Robinson,
and his step-father's name is Stephen Ack
lin. Clarence lived with his mother and
Acklin on Lumber and William streets. The
boy is a wild and reckless youngster and
his step-father took him into a room yester
day and remonstrated with him against the
way he was living. The boy said nothing
in reply but was cross and sullen, and an
hour later he stepped behind Acklin and
-stabbed him in the back with a dirk. Dr.
S. C. Parsons was called to attend Acklin
and he found that while the cut was a pretty
bad one it is not dangerous.
THROUGH A SHOWCASE.
Another serious difficulty occurred at
Umbach’s store, on the Louisville road yes
terday afternoon. There was a negro
named Adam Floyd in tho shire and the
clerk ordered him out, but he refused to
leave. The clerk attempted to remove him
by force, and in the scuffle Floyd’s right
ann was shoved through a showcase. The
arteries in the wrist were severed.
The negro started for town, but did not
reach here until 9 o’clock. He went to Dr.
S. C. Parsons’ office and had his wounds
dressed. His clothing was saturated with
blood and he was in a dangerous condition
from its lass. It was in this store that
William Prenty, who is now under indict
ment for murder, shot and killed a negro

SHOT HIS NEPHEW.
Little Alex. Segur Accidentally Killed
by His 17-Year-Old Uncle.
“Bill” Williams, a negro boy about 17
years of age, accidentally shot and killed
his 3-year-old nephew, Alex. Segur, Mon
day night in the kitchen of the house in
which they lived near Brownsville. Williams
bought a pistol about two weeks before
Christmas and went out shooting with it.
On returning home he drew out all the
shells of the exploded cartridges and placed
the pistol in a box in his grandmother's
room, whore it has remained untouched, he
thought, ever since.
Monday evening he took it from the box
and sat down in the kitchen to clean it His
little nephew stood beside him watching
him work. Suddenly the pistol went off
and the boy put his hand to his side and
began to cry. His mother rushed in from
the next room and asked Williams if he had
shot the baby. He replied that lie
did not know," but he began stripping
the clothes off the little fellow
and found a hole in his left side. Dr. Myers
was sent for and he attended the boy, but the
ball had touched a fatal spot, and at 3
o’clock yesterday morning he died. Coro
ner Dixon was notified yesterday morning
and he held an inquest at which the above
facta were learned. The jury rendered a
verdict of accidental homicide.
THE MASCOTTE OUT OF LUCK.
The Big Steamer Likely to be Brought
It is not unlikely that the Plant steamship
Mascotte, which broke loose while on the
marine railway at Jacksonville, on Monday,
and slid liack into the river, completely
wrecking the railway machinery, will be
brought to Savannah to be re
paired. The vessel has been
undergoing repairs for several weeks at
Jacksonville. On Monday it became neces
sary to haul her out of the river on the
marine railway. After the ship was put in
the cradle it required two hours of steady
strain to get her to her proper position.
The distance was short, but the
movement was almost imperceptible. At
last, however, the reluctant craft was
dragged up to the line, when suddenly there
was" a crash and she was out in the river
again. Persons who were present say that
they did not see her go. The movement
was instantaneous. As stated in the
Morning News yesterday, the rail
way machinery was a complete wreck.
Capt. J. W. Fitzgerald, who was superin
tending the work, seeing that there was no
possible chance to have the Mascotte hauled
out at Jacksonville again until the hoisting
apparatus was repaired, telegraphed to Sa
vannah to know if shipwrights here could
haul her out and she may be brought here.
The delay- and time the steamship lias been
out of service has cost the company consid
erable money. The accident is supposed to
have been caused either by a flaw in the
cogs or by something falling into the cogs
while the "wheels were in motion and throw
ing them out of gear.
The vessel’s weight is 800 tons and it was
expected that she would be ready to go on
tho iine again by July 4. The "accident at
Jacksonville will delay her some time, how
A NEW COMBINE.
Electric Light Plant Owners to Resist
a Rise in Carbons.
The latest instance of consolidation is a
combine of proprietors of electric lighting
companies, who propose hereafter to manu
facture their own carbons, in both the large
and small sizes used according to the candle
power of the light. Heretofore these car
bons have been made exclusively by tliir
tecn manufactories, seven in Cleveland, two
in St. Louis, two in Pittsburg, one in Mas
saohuasets and one in Connecticut, and these
manufacturers found a good market for
their wares, as some of the electric
companies used from 500.000 to
1,000,000 carbons per month. Re
cently all these manufacturers entered
into an agreement to raise the price of car
bons from $lO and sl2 per 1,000, according
to size, to S2O and $25 per 1,000. The Brush
Electric Light Company here uses from
3,000 to 4,000 carbons a month. For the
past two or three months it has been pay ing
S2O per 1,000, where it formerly paid but
$lO, "the increase being 100 per cent. The
electric light companies all over the country
are combining to start a manufactory in
New York, where the cost of production
would be reduced to a minimum, and the
carbons would be manufactured at not to
exceed the old price. The 100 |er cent, ad
vance is quite an item, even to small com
panies like that in Savannah, footing up a
considerable advance on the cost of furnish
ing the light.

„„ THE FORDS’ SUCCESS.
They Make a Big Hit in “Dora” and “The
Youth Who Never Saw a Woman.”
Tho Fords made the hit of the season last
night in “Dora.” The play is a pastoral
drama founded on Tennyson’s poem, and
was written by Charles Reade. It is full of
strong situations, which were taken advan
tage of most effectively. “Farmer Allen”
and his son “William” are the two leading
characters. “Dora” is “Farmer Allen's ’
niece, whom he wishes his son to marry.
“Mary" is a j>oor family relative whom the
sturdy fanner has taken into his family.
Around these the story of the play is woven.
Mr. Thomas McCabe and Mr. I,awrence
Hanley as “Farmer Allen” and his son di
vided the honors. Both parts were admir
ably sustained. Mr. McCabe as the sturdy
old farmer and Mr. Hanley as his soil,
“William,” whose secret marriage with
“Mary” in preference to “Dora,” the chosen
and favored niece, provokes the unrelentless
father's wrath, were given an ovation.
Mr. Hanley’s appearance was enthusiasti
cally applauded and Mr. McCabe was sev
eral times recalled. Miss Clara Baker as
• ’ Dora” made a decided hit. She has already
become a favorite with Savannah audiences,
and her sucess is well merited, for she is a
Miss Alollie Maeder as “Mary” had an ex
cellent conception of the character, and she
played the part most successfully. Mr. Joe
F. Doyle as “Luke Bloomfield” and Mr. B.
T. Estill as “Jem Blount,” acted well their
parts. Master Herbert as “Little Willie”
was beartilv applauded. The plav through
out was admirably produced, and so far is
the greatest success of the season.
After the drama came the farce “The
Youth Who Never Saw a Woman,” with
Colin, the youth Miss Maude White
Philip Mr. Larry Doyle
Ronaldo Mr. William Fleming
Gertrude Miss T. Farrer
Eliza Miss Mollie Maeder
It is one of the most original as it is one of
the best, farces that the Fords have
ever riven. It was an uproarious suc
cess. The audience laughed and applauded
by turns, and when the curtain went down
it gave one loud cheer and stamped and ap
plauded until the curtain was rolled up
again. M.ss White as “Colin.” Miss Maeder
as “Eliza,” and Miss Farrer as “Gertrude,”
the governess, carried the audience
completely away. Mr. Larry Doyle as
“Philp” and Mr. William Fleming as
“Rinaldo” were all that they ever were.
The east both for the drama and the farce
was weil made and every part was success
fully sustained. The same Dill will be given
at to-dav's matinee and wili be repeated

is on trial in Augusta. May 1, 1883, the
directors of the Charlotte, Columbia and
Augusta road leased that road for ninety
nine years to the Richmond and Danville
Railroad Company. A considerable mi

The arbitrators were J. G. Rhea, L.

Georgia Midland. Major Belknap, for the
Central, said that his load wanted
no money consideration, but wanted
only such precautions taken to gfuard

was that the Georgia Midland and Gulf road
should place signals at the point where that
road crossed the Savannah, Griffin and

such signals to he placed there whenever
needed, and to be maintained by the junior

Midland objected, and after still further
arguing the case it was submitted to the
board for decision. After a short consulta
tion the board decided that the Georgia
Midland and Gulf railroad should pay the
Central" and Savannah, Griffin ann North
Alabama railroads $350 each, damages for
crossing the roads.

Yachtsmen Stirred Up Over the Set
down on Home-made Crafts.
’ Yachting Editor Morning Sews: Asa
general rule it is not considered “just the
thing” to criticise the conduct of a club out
side of its organized meetings. But the Sa
vannah Yacht Club has recently adopted
some rules that justly merit public criticism.
For instance, one rule is that any boat may
enter for the races, but tliat a member of
the club must go on it or it will not be
allowed to run. Now the builder and
owner appears with his boat at the proper
time, out because of the indifference
of the members of tho yacht club, or their
fear of tauning their complexions, or their
fondness for personal comfort, no member
will go on the outsider’s yacht; and as a
result the home-made Georgia pine yacht,
built right here at a cost of perhaps one
fourth that of the Northern-built yacht and
often very much more substantial, is ruled
out of the race. Is this fair to our poor
fishermen, who display such talent in con
structing new models ? Is it not a fear of
being beaten by the so-called batteaux!
In the recent Isie of Hope regattas two
boats built bv the Messrs. Ferguson at Cedar
Hammock defeated all the finer crafts. Is
not this a credit to the builders and to Cap
tains Brown and Ferguson, who sailed them ?
And now comes the adoption of rules which
practically exclude both boats. Gentlemen
of the Savannah Yacht Club, are you afraid
to meet the Rear Admiral's fleet from Cedar
Hammock and Shipyard t
Take the other rule. The Savannah Yacht
Club pretends that it wants to encourage
yachting. Messrs. Ludden & Bates made
Capt. Brown, for the Vivian, a present of a
sail with their name and advertisement on
it, and in a recent race this boat distanced
competition and so ruffled the club that it
adopted a rule to exclude the sail. If
our Sa-’annah and Chatham county
boys can for one-fourth the money
build boats that can run away
from the so-called fine yachts belonging to
the Savannah Yacht Club members, it is a
good thing to find out, both for the encour
agement of home talent and economy.
If the Savannah Yacht Club wanes to do
the fair thing let it adopt another rule,
that when an outsider takes all the trouble
to equip or build a boat and bring it to the
race the Commodore shall order a member
aboard, oi the boat shall not be excluded
because of tho laziness or love of ease of the
members of the club itself. A Member.

A GEORGIAN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
He Talks About the Impoverished
Farms and the Movement of the
Young People to More Promising
Chesterfield, N. H., June 34.—A Geor
gian among the mountains of this oid
Granite State is truly a rara avis, but my
experience is he will be a fortunate one and
not regret the coming, particularly at this
season of the year, before the hotels are
filled to overflowing by the city folks. More
hospitable people I've never met—genial
gentlemen, sprightly and pretty ladies
make the hours pass agreeably—and the
magnificent clover and timothy pastures
well stocked with mild-eyed Jerseys, trim
looking Devons and romping lambs, and
all under the supervision of the thrifty
farmer guarantee!' to the inner man the best
of meats, butter and milk, and all this,
with a temperature of about 70°, make
this season of the year very agreeable.
This place is prettily situated among the
higli hills, eight miles ride from New York
city, and about ton miles east of the cele
brated Connecticut valley, that divides this
State from Vermont. It is patronized prin
cipally by Boston and New York people,
who, during the warm months, seek quiet
and recreation among these beautiful hills.
The farming interest of New Hampshire is
fast dying out. Forty ydars ago it was a
fanning State, the soil was rich and pro
ductive, and large crops could be raised:
but now the soil is impoverished and most
of the owners too poor to go into revitaliz
ing it to any great extent. Grass fed to
cattle has been the farmers’ principal means
of support, but the West now sends beef
already dressed into the various cities
cheaper than the New England farmer can
raise it. Tumbled down barns, neglected
fences and deserted houses are seen at every
turn. The result is that the farms are be
ing fast deserted by the young men and
women, who either go West or crowd into
the manufacturing towns.
In a short time New Hampshire will be
almost exclusively a manufacturing State,
and having no forests or seaports, that is
about all the inhabitants have to look for
ward to. And is the prospect bright!
Heretofore New England has almost monop
olized the manufacturing of all domestic
articles, as cutlery, crockery, furniture,
harness, etc., and always found easy mar
ket for the same in the South and West, but
things are changing now: factories of like
character are now springing up iu all parts
of the South and West, and yet New Hamjv
shire must look to these identical markets
for the disposition of her products, knowing
full well that freights of from
2.U00 to 3,000 miles is in favor of
the South and West. The railroads there
are going to play a very important part in
the future of this State. No wonder tre
mendous efforts are now being made
throughout the State to have such laws
passed as will keep the railroads out of the
hands of the great outside capitalists, for to
these roads the State must look for her fu
Young America has become too numer
ous for the small firms of New Hampshire,
but nappy and cheerful homes for the
economical and industrious can and will be
found nestling at the foot of these big hills,
even though the valleys are but a few
acres in extent. T.
A Multitude of Ailments.
The ailments which afflict the kidneys and
bladder are so numerous, that merely to name
them would till a space far outrunning the limit*
of this article. Suffice it to say that they are
both obstinate and dangerous. To their preven
tion Hof tet'er s Stomach Bitters is well adapted.
Ttie stimulus which it lends to the action of the
kidneys when they arc lethargic, serve to coun
teract a tendency in them to lapse, firs’, into a
state of pernicious, inactivity and afterward
into one of positive organic disease, which soon
destroys ftheir delicate integuments poisons
the blood and causes death. A double purpose
is served by this depurent. It pr<imotes activity
of the kidneys and expels impurities from the
blood which have no natural channel of outlet
except those organs. Constqiation, biliousness,
fever and ague, rheumatism and dyspepsia are
also remedied by this medicine of thorough
action and wide scope.
