The Central claims that Its interest has not been paid as required Ivy the conditions of the mortgage Linds.

MOTHER PEAK AND HER FAMILY Give a Charming Entertainment at St. John’s Pariah Hall. The “L. O. V.” Society of St. John’s church gave a most delightful entertain ment at St. John's Parish Hall last night. Mother Peak anil her twenty-one charming daughters were given a hearty welcome by the audience as they marched into the hall with their toll white peaked caps. Their opening chorus was very prettily sung ami was loudly applauded. Miss Maggie (ilivcr as “Olivette Peak,” sang “Who’s at My Window” inacliarnting manner. Mother Peak in announcing Olivette’s song said that she diil't approve of it at all but that “Olivette” was a Peak. Miss Oliver is a favorite with the musical public and she was wurmly applauded. Miss Marie Lesesne as “Mamie Peak” very sweetly sang “For You” and was followed by the Ivamm chorus, as played by Theodore Thomas’ orchestra, by eight Peaks. The chorus was “Way Down Upon the Suwanee River” played on combs. It was repeatedly applauded anil as an encore Mother Peak list her daughters in “Dixie,” which was even more enthusiastically received than was “S’wannoe River.” Mother Peuk then introduced her dumb daughter, Tiney, whom she explained had been staying at Tybee for her health, and had lost her voice in the marshes some time ago while on her way to tho city by the Tybee railroad. When Tiney stepped be fore her sistci-s she didn’t look as though she bad been staying at a summer hotel very long. Her song was in pantomime, but it took the audience, mid she was twice re called. The last time her identity was re voaled, and the audience knew Tiney as Mr. Cecil Berrien. Then followed the closing anthem, and the Peaks retired. "Mother Peak," by Mrs. J. Riley, was a most original character. Her witty savings and local hits were apt and pointed. There ore few who can make the part a success, and Mrs. Riley did. Her daughters were Misses Williams, Besselieu, Middleton, Shivers, Stone, Oliver, Lesesne, Berrien, Paine, Proctor, Haynes, AVnlthour, Gar many and Cherry. The "Peak Family" lias never been better represented than it was last night. Tho second part of tho entertainment be gan with Miss Bernstein’spianosolo,"Bongof the Woods.” Miss Bernstein is a talented performer, and her execution of one of Ralmdeeker’s most difficult works was greeted with warm applause. In response she plavod one of Chopin’s waltzes. Mr. \V. IS. Dnffin sang with excellent effect “Two Little Bagged Urchins;" and then came the operetta, "Cups and Hau ers,” with Mr. P. H. Ward as the “Gen eral,” and Miss Maggie Oliver as “Mrs. Worcester." This was tho concluding part of the entertainment. The piece was charmingly given. Miss Oliver made a splendid “Mrs. Worcester," and the part could hardly havo beeu letter acted. Her solos and duets with the “General” were ad mirably given. Mr. Ward made the most of the "General's” part. Everybody was de lighted with tho operetta ami the entire en tertainment The “Y. B. F.” orchestra, composed of Missis, Hiirtridge, l’urso, Drane, Butler, Lamar and iSpivy, played the overture. After the operetta tho young ladies of the society served ice cream and cake.

Mr. Jackson returned to Savannah yesterday and brought the officer with him. A warrant was issued for Hammond, but he could not L- found.

The term of office of the present Mayor and City Council will close with the present year, and tho merits of different citizens who might be come candidates are being discussed. A report has bean current in the city that an effort would be made to induce Capt. Wagener to accept tho Democratic nomina tion. Charlestonians are stirred up over the rumors about the New York steamships. The Sews and Courier says that negotia tions of some kind have been in progress for some time. What they are no one except the officers of the company know, and there is no such thing as a latch string on the door of their mouths. They say that something is going to happen and this is all that they will sav. The City of Columbia and the City of Atlanta have not been running be tween New York and Charleston for about two months. These two steamships hnve been seiz.il in New York for debt. It is said that three years ago the indebtedness amounted to $150,000. An arrangement was made, as the story goes, that this indebh'dness, which was due the builder of the ships, was to be paid in throe annual installments, and that not one of those in stallments has beeu paid. The builder of tho ships wanted his money, demanded payment, anil a short while ago seized the ships. The builder was not the only creditor of the line. Claims for repairs and claims for supplies have been entered and arc seeking priority. The whole amount of indebtedness on tfie two steamships is now said to amount to over $200,060, It is suiil that there will be a lawsuit over the ships, and that they will be sold. Tho two ships are said to Ik.'long to the South Carolina Railway Company. THE STAR-STUDDED SKY. Movements of the Planets During Summer’s Second Month. The star-lit evenings of July will be full of tieauty for those who delight to study the wonders of the heavens. Tho peerless Venus, fairest of the stars, will reach her greatest distance eastward from the sun, while she shines like a young moon in the glowing West. The lordly Jupiter will look down from the meridian at sunset and tread with starry foot his western path until at mid night he sinks below the horizon. The ring girdled Saturn, hidden from mortal sight, will |mss beyond tho sun and commence his course as morning star. Mer cury, on winged feet will, like Venus, reach hi* eastern Hunt, and w ith hurrying pace pans between us and the sun to join the choir of morning stars in hoavenlv liar inony. These are the movements of some of our brother worlds, members like our selves of the sun’s family. They are but motes in the sunbeum, grains of sand on the seashore, where we compare them with the immensity of the material universe, as glo riously pictured in the suns of space that track their shining wav in myriad hosts over the broad concave of the heavens.

Eastman, Ga., July 4. —Editor Morning Sews: The traveling public on this lino of road (Macon and Brunswick division of the East Tennessoe, Virginia and Georgia rail road) are very much put out on account of a recent order by the management of this road which prevents the public getting on or off by the night lines, both north and south-bound, at any station except Cochran, Eastman, Cliaunccy, Lumber City and Cur rency. This is not only a great inconve nience to the commercial traveler, but to the public generally, who have no ftime to lose in visiting either Macon or Savannah. No doubt in many instances persons prefer staying at home rather than spending nearly thrixs days for a trip formerly made in one day. Before the order was issued one could leave home at night for either Mooon or Sa vannah, have all day following to attend to business, and be back home again the same night. As it is at pivsont it takes tile Inst jiart of one day to get to either citv. arriv ing there late at evening, another day to at tend to business and the best part of a third day to get hack home again. t cannot see any good reason for such a change. Bv leaving it by the former sched ule the roucl is not put to any extra expense, mid to save time in running they need not stop only at stations where passengers want to get off or are flagged down for passen gers to get on. I hope by your bringing these facts to tho notice of the management they may find it to the interest and advantage of all con cerned to revoke the order. I).

There was a general deficiency of rainfall throughout the region cast of the Rocky Mountains, except in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Kansas, Nebraska, South ern Georgia, and the southern portions of the States bordering on tho Gulf of Mexico. The greatest deficiencies are reported from Tennessee, the Ohio and upper Mississippi valleys. Some of the greatest departures below the normal rainfall (in inches) are: Chattanooga, 2.8; Louisville, 2.7; Coluin bus, 2.8; St. Louis, 2.(i; Keokuk, 3!9; Des- Moines, 4,!); LaCrosse, 3.5; Milwaukee, 3.3; and Grand Haven, 3.9. Some of the great est excesses of rainfall above the normal (in inches) are: New York City, 4.4; Phila delphia, 3.5; Savannah, 3.8; Jacksonville, 4.0; Mobile, 8.4; New Orleans, 5.3; Galves ton, 4.0; Brownsville, 11.5; and Rio Grande City, U.S. The total rainfall for tho month on the Pacific coast was slightly below the normal. The following total rainfall (in inches) for the month are given as extra ordinary: Savannah, 10.8; Mobile, 14.1; New Orleans, 11.3; Brownsville, 13.8. No destructive frosts were reported from any stations of the service during the month. This fact seems to be in accord with the statement of the mean temperature being above the normal for the month in the regions where frost would most likely occur. During the 10th and 11th high easterly winds prevailed aloug the Atlantic coast from Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras. The ab sence of rain, the presence of temperature of 30° to 50“ aiiove freezing, the general steadiness of the wind velocity, and timely warnings by cautionary signals reduce possible disasters to a minimum. A number of other dangerous winds occurred, but were of a local nature and brief endurance, and usually accompanied thunder storms. Severe local storms were quite rare during the month. Some were reported from Penn sylvania, West Virginia, Missouri, Dakota and Western Texas of a destructive nature. The Markham House, Atlanta, Ga. This always popular hostelry has recently changed hands, and is now conducted by Ervin Maxwell, who is also the proprietor of the celebrated Palace Hotel in Cincinnati, O. The latter, however, is run under the name of Ervin Maxwell & Son, while the Markham is managed solely by Mr. Max well himself. This gentleman has lieen in the business for lorty-one years, starting at the bottom as a kitchen boy and steadily working up to the topmost rung of the lad der. The Palace Hotel under his astute management, from the very lowest condi tion when ho assumed charge, has acliieved a proud success, and now takes rank with the best andAuost fashionable houses of en tertainment in the Union. Under the plas tic touch of Mr. Maxwell the Markham, too, has taken anew departure, and the interior of the establishment would hardly be recog nized by its best patrons. Indeed he has so added to. altered and improved the arrange ment of the first floor, that it is like anew creation. Partitions were knocked away, new chambers, closets, etc. constructed, and till the conveniences and appurtenances of a first-class modern hotel superadded. The effect has been almost magical. The water closets are simply unsurpassed. A commo dious kitchen with long cooking ranges, boilers, dressers and all the new inventions of the culinary art in full array, presided over by skillful and experienced cooks, leaves nothing wanting in that department. Adjoining, too, may be found the pantry, crockery and glass room, linen chamber, bakery, steam laundry, (with its ironing ap paratus, wringing machine, etc.) carving ;uid serving apartments, storeroom stocked like a family grocery, pastry closet, wash room, and in short a place for everything, deftly and artistically devised and arranged by Mr. Maxwell himself. All of these im provements are entirely new and complete, even the floors having been taken up and re laid. Above, the sleeping chambers, par lors, passage ways, etc., are all handsomely furnished and well ventilated; most of the furniture and carpets, and all of the jiair mattresses aud linen being “spic and span” new. Every room in the house has been thoroughly papered and painted, and the whole establishment remodeled at heavy cost, and presents a very attractive appear ance. Even the elevators, which run ail night, have iieen thoroughly overhauled, and electric bells communicate with every chamber. The dining-room equipment, in cluding chairs, glass, cutlery, candelabra, linen, etc., is all new and elegant. These improvements were all made under the im mediate direction of thejnroprietor at an outlay of over $30,000. The hotel has had a most successful opening and will doubtless be liberally patronized. The cuisine and table are simply excel lent, and the staff of servants large and at tentive. Mr. Maxwell is no stranger in Georgia, having owned a home in Marietta tor many years. Phons Young, so favor ably known to the public, is iubtallod in the office, assisted by Will E. Maxwell, room clerk; Fred Davis, cashier, and Theodore Hammoud night clerk. The Markham can accommodate 250 guests, and the proprietor is always on hand to make them comfortable and happy. An inspection of our thin Coats and Vests is earnestly requested before purchasing.
