BOW TWO NEGROES PLUNDERED
fcegular Visits Paid to a Tobacco

Taken Away How the Thieves
Were Run Down and Caught.
Benjamin Young and Alfred Walker
(ooloredi. were '■'nt to jail yesterday on a
conunitineul from Justice Waring 11 iseil s
court, charging lb cut with burglary, the
offense being stealing tobacco from El’i*.
Young &Cos Messrs. E lis, Young & t ’<>.
have an office in the City Exchange on the
east side. In the tiaseuieiit of the Exchange
they have a warehouse for the storage of to
bacco. but seldom have a very large stock on
band. The warehouse ha- two approaches,
but both are open, and ns the electric

veil the tlmi's jiorter sus]iected iiotbing of
the kind. The detective soon got
oil a track and satisfied himself
that he was on the right road, out he lacked
yet the necessary evidence to hold his orb
icier if arrested. After the discovery or the
robbery the linn took the precaution of
counting the lioxes every night and morn
ing. Nothing wrong was observ si till yes
terday utorning, " hen on making the usual
count four more hoxe , were missing. Mr.
Young then resolved on “war,” and united
1 is efforts with Mr. Wetherhorn to hunt
the rascals down. The dues obtainod were
followed out, more and fresh traces of the
parties implicated secured and by .8
o'clock in the afternoon the shrewd detec
tive and his active co-laborer had the sat is
faction of arresting two of the thieves, and
lad the name of the buyer of the stolen
goods in their possession. They secured
also the return of a [sirtion of the tobacco
and information regarding where the bal
ance was stored.
When examined the negroes charg'd
each other with tlie burglary, each admit
ting he had received the t ibacco from the
other and that the other fellow entered the
warehouse. When the place was
found where tue tobacco was sup
posed to lie. the proprietor disclaimed
all knowledge of it. A search warrant was
procured and some tobacco was brought to
light that Mr. Young identified as theirs.
Ail their ping tobaccos were labeled, or
rather hail their trade mark or name on
labels which were pasted on the plug' . On
a dose examination it was seen when' these
tigs or pasters had been torn off, the mark
or outline left on the tobacco being cjtut •
plainly seen. The evidence was sufficient,
and the tobacco was taken to Justice Rus
Benj. Young was the warehouse man, and
it is supposed in this way he became fatnil
lar with the amount of tobacco on hand and
made his hauls accordingly. Walker hod
formerly been a drayman for the house, but
was discharged some time ago. It is thought
thov hud one or more confederates, and that
the raids were made by three or more at a
time, one standing guard while the others
entered the room.
THE REMAINS IDENTIFIED.
Furman M. Burkonstein the Man Killed
on the Central Railroad.
Sunday, July 17, the Mornixq News
chronicled the killing of an unknown man
on the Central railroad, at the 48-inile post.
Besides this, there was a description of the
party and the clothing lie worn This no
tice fell into the 1 lands of his relations, and
to-day his two brothers-in-law, E.
J. Henary and T. J. Graham, of
Guyton, this Mate, came lor the remains.
The deceased. Freeman M. Burk-iistem,
"was a farmer King near Guyton. He was
41 years old and o and dumb from his birth,
lie was nci us ,n twl to start out from his
home every now and then, remaining ab
sent for some time. A few days before he
was killed he started off as usual, going
toward Milieu. He probably went up us
far as he desired, and had turned and
partly retract*] his steiss homeward, us he
was walking towara Guyton when
the engine struck him. Being

they applied to the Central authorities and

Capt. Dixon ye.tenlay and identified the
body from the description. To make sure,
however, the KG. was exhumed and the
gentlemen identified it beyond a question.
It was proparsl for removal ami will lie

A rare and beautiful sight was witnessed
off Tybee Island Sunday morning about 11
o'clock in the shspo of six immense water

on the beach at the time when the spouts
appeared. The sight from the deck or the

not often seen. The pilots say that those

THE TEACHERS’ EXAMINATION.
No Report Yet Made Concerning the
Barnard Street School Vacancy.
Kupt. Baker said yesterday that the Board
of Education would not act on tho commit
tee's recommendation regarding the Bar
nard street school vacancy till some time in
August. The committee examined thopn
pi rs the evening after the examinations
were eonclude*l. and the superintendent says
they were pleased at the averages made by
the applicants for the position. The scop,
of tho examination was very broad and thor
ough. The following are tho individual
averages made by the eight candidates: 96,
SS 5-U, 81, 79 1-9, 78 3, 78 1-9, 77 1-6 and 77.
No names are given yet, so there will Ik* a
good deal of speculation regarding the
standing of the different ones, and probably
a wide diversity of opinion. It is thought
that Miss L. J. Craig and Mrs. K. E. Cotcli
. tt, both of the Massie school, stand very
high in the list. The average of all was si
and a fraction, which the committee thought
very fair. Great interest has been
attached to this examination by
the teachers and their friends, and all are
anxiously waiting the committee's report.
In making this report the committee will
not only take into consideration these
averages but also the experience of the
teacher, their past school record and all
matters connected therewith, so that the
mere fact of securing the highest mark
in this examination would not be sufficient

A slight disturbance was had in the Gulf,
the wind blowing at the rate of forty miles
tier hour at Cedar Key. The temperature
of the upper lake region has tumbled down
to among the fifties, and there is n prospect
that this will relieve this section some time
the lntfi-r part of the week. Rain fell in all
the cotton districts; and in the Carolina.*,
where it was most needed, they had generous
showers, though hardly sufficient to help the

inches of rain fell from Jp. m., to 10 o’clock.
A MIDNIGHT MARAUDER.
A Night. Watchman Fires Two Shots
at a River Thief
About 1 o'clock last night Peter Murphy
who is watchman of the bark Pohonto, saw
a man rowing about the vessel in a small
boat. He tried to get through lietween
the vessel and the wharf but finding
the place too narrow he pulled around the
bow and back to the stern. Murphy kept
an eye on Inland saw him attempting to
steal tho skiff that was tics! t<> 1 lie boat. He
called to the marauder to know what he
wanted and no answer came, but the sound
of tugging nt the ropes gave Murphy to un
derstand that lii • fellow was still trying to
get the boat loose, so he fired a shot to scare
the thief, and succeeded, for he let go the
lmat in Smart 'd out into the river. Murphv
called to him to stop, hut he only sent hack
mi impudent rejoinder, and another shot
was fired over hi* head, but the thief pulled
out and got away.

An impression prevails among those who
are not well versed in such matters that the
increase in the amount of the tax digest in
creases the commissions of tho Receiver of
Tax Returns. The fact is that the county
pays commissions only on the amount called
ror in the county’s budget of expenses for
the year, and as the ex [lenses this year are
less "than those of last year, tlie receiver
actually gets less for his labors on the larger
amount than he did on the smaller. It
is owing to the increased care and vigilance
of that officer t.haf the burdens of taxation
are being reduced on the individual by his
efforts in getting on his books property
heretofore untaxed, and by increasing the
valuation on property which previously re
turned only a portion of its real value. The
increase in the digest will decrease the rate
df taxation from 90c. to about 32c.

THE WATERMELON SEASON.
Handling’ Sixty Thousand of the Fruit
in One Day.
From the New York Evening Sun.
Nothing could be in more marked ron
i trust than the trvo ends of the street known
as Park place. It may be described at pres
ent as tieginning near the Post Office and
ending at the water front and watermelons.
There were more watermelons down at the
foot of Park row yesterday than have been
seen there l this season, and that is
saying a great deal.
W.-,u-r..ay morning a little blackboard on
the pier of the Ocean Steamship Company
of Savannah at the foot of Park row an
nounced that the steamship City of Augusta,
with a big cargo ofjwatemielons and several
Southern people coming North under the
delusion that it is cool here, had passed the
Highlands. At 10:30 o'clock the big iron
steamship swept up to her pier and then a
large, hot pandemonium broke loose. Scores
of big trucks with yelling perspiring drivers
struggled for places on the pier, and the po
lice officer on duty there shouted himself
hoarse trying to keep each in his place.
When the passengers had left the ship the
watermelons disembarked. There were
about 00,000 of them, and it seemed from
the noise made bv the men who unloaded
them thai there Was one man to every
melon. There were, however, only 200
men. Each wore a decollotte outfit of an
undershirt and a pair of overalls.
The perspiration streamed from them
until th-y looked as if they had been bath
ing in watermelon juice. By way of keep
ing enough moisture in the system, they
stopped now and then to seize the blushing
vitals of a watermelon that had been frac
tured coming ashore. Piles of these broken
melons accumulated on the pier. The red
of the interior of the melons and the rich
green of the rinds, with the black hull of
the iron steamship as a background, made a
striking combination of colors.
When the broken melons had thrown out
their red signals, several small boys an
swered them with great promptness and
made the soul of the i>olice officer weary.
The country boy, who eludes the farmer’s
bulldog or dodges the contents of his shot
gun, steals a melon and lugs it off into some
quiet corner of the cornfield, thinks he has
tun and excitement, but his experiences are
tame beside the melon escapades of these
city boys who never saw a cornfield. The
country boy, after he has carried a melon
half a mile and then cut it, often finds it is
green. The city boy has to run no such
chances. He merely runs the gauntlet of
tho police to the end of the pier, seizes the
biggest piece of melon he can find, skulks
behind trucks till he gets near the pier en
trance, and then makes a desperate dash for
some place of safety where he can gorge
himself and get the cholera morbus unmo
“About 10 per cent, of a cargo of melons
is lost through breakage and other causes,”
said a dealer, “and sometimes I think 5 per
cent of this loss accumulates on the dock.
Say 180,000 melons a week come in here.
That would give the boys 9,000 melons a
A reporter went in the big vessel’s melon
hold to see the men unloading the cargo.
Every minute a man would make toward
him with a big, bulging wheelbarrow and
yell, “Look out, there!”
He would look out in that direction only
to collide with another wheelbarrow, and
provoke the terribly powerful profanity of
another man. Each carload lot of melons
was separated from each other lot with a
sort of wooden cage, labelled with the name
of the consignee. A carload is from 1.000
to 1,500 melons, and the freight amounts to
about 890. The Charleston and the Mallory
lines bring their contributions to the great
supply, and even in the lass busy season
the arrivals here amount to 200,000 a week,
which, at the lowest price, would make the
amount invested in melons in New York
every week something beyond the compre
hension of the honest farmer with his little
10 by 12 hill patches.
There is, too, one character among the
many dealers on the long pier at the foot of
Park place who would take the conceit out
of the average country boy who raises his
little crop of melons for home consumption.
Every such boy prides himself that he can
surpass every other boy in telling whether
a melon is ripe or not without plugging it
and thus ruining its future usefulness. Each
boy has his favorite rule for diagnosing a
melon’s case without dissection and he will
tell you all about it. There is an old melon
dealer on the pier, Janies Tierney by name,
who has the reputation of having never
been fooled with a green melon. He cannot
tell you how to decide by outward evidence
the inward stab- of a melon, but he does it.
He buys liig melons and he cannot afford
to be fooled.
Another expert is John Malloy, buyer for
Janies A. Judge, one of the most extensive
dealers on the market. A carload of the
largest, and finest melons received this sea
son wore at the point on the pier devoted
to Mr. Judge’s fruit. Some modest
melons were selling at $lO and sls a hun
dred yesterday, hut Mr. Judge's giants cost
Sitting beside the display was J. F. Saun
ders, a bronzed Southern gentleman He is
the man who raised the melons, and he had
come up all the way from his South Caro
lina melon farm of forty-four acres b> see
what sort of a reception New York would
give his fruit. He raised forty seven acres
this year with 140 hills to the acre. The bugs
nipped off an average of forty hills to the
acre —the bug, unlike the boy, prefers his
melons green—which left 400 hills on each
acre. The watermelon vine, if allowed to
have its own prolific way, would produce a
large number of melons of assorted sizes;
but Mr.* Saunders allowed only one melon
b> the vine, and f lien the vino came to un
der stand that it had to devote all its atten
tion to one object it did its level and biggest
“These Georgia melons have been coming
over since June,” said a dealer, “and the
season may last over two weeks longer.
Then the Virginia melons will have their
turn. They come by rail and by the Old
Dominion line. A melon doesn't like to
travel on the cars very well, and it makes
it slightly seasick to come by steamship. It
lets to rest two or three days after its ar
rival to lie in good shape.”
AS hen the A irgiiiia melon has had its day,
the New Jersey melon will come up smiling
and blushing. Besides the big dealers there
stoo I on the pier groups of men and women
whore clamor could is* hear ! above the rat
tle of the trucks and the shouts of melon un
loaders. They were buyers of “specked"
melons. They are the individuals who retail
the red fruit on stands in the crowded quar
ters at le. a gnaw. Their skill inoarvingand
making the most of Ihe melon is wonder
ful. They wnste not a fragment of it. A
specked melon is one which has been slight
ly bruised and has a weak jioiiit. The un
harmed jxirtion may lie healthy and these
melon surgeons buy their stock cheap, cut
out the diseased portions with great care,
and nu ke a hnnasoine profit on them. There
v is not n colored man among these modest
dealers. Colored jx-oplo have tried the
buxine ■ with the almost invariable result
that they yielded to temptation and ate up
their own stores. There were colored men
among th l ' unloaders, and the steamlviat
line has innumerable applications from Afri
cans wl.o desire positions on the melon
