A great deal of work wns done on the con

the good of the order, but Iving all a part
of the secret work of the organization, of
course nothing can be given. Jjist night

conferring of the Grand Lodge degree on
th.* waiting representatives and past offi
cers, the reports of the Grand Master,
Grand Secretary and Grand Treasurer wili
be read. The election of officers will then
take place. It is highly probable that Mr.
Duviil p< rtor, the present Deputy Gram!
Master, will Is 1 elected Grand Master, as he
i* foremost in all work that promisee good
to the order, an I indefatigable in his efforts
to promote its welfare and growth. He is
pei-soually quite popular, also, ami as there
la no opposition, his election will probably
tie unanimous. It is thought that the pres
ent Grand Warden will lie advanced to
Deputy Grand, which will leave the field
ojicn for the Grand Warden’s chair. The
Grand Secretary and the Grand Treasurer
will probably lie their own suc
cessors. A Grand Representative will also
be elected, as Mr. Dorsett’s term expires.

adjourn about 1 o’clock for the Tybee trip.

A BREEZY DEBATE EXPECTED.
One very interest mg tonic will probably
be taken up to-day, and that will be the
“Odd Fellows' National Benefit Associa
1 on,” so called, of Cincinnati. This was
first exposed in the Morning News sonic
months ago. Tiie home members are greatly
worked up over the matter, and propose to
sift it to the bottom. A slip is now being
circulated containing the facts given in
the News article, and great inter
est is centred in the matter, espe
cially as the members think the Grand
Master was imposed upon. Grand Master
Lull tte approved the scheme, audit was
mainly u|xn his approval that the members
were Induced to go into what proved to tie
a mu: approach to a swindle, and though,
of course, the Grand Master had no idea,
Other than of benefiting the members of the
order, they think that he should have in
vestigated it more fully before approving it.
THE GRAND MASTER’S REPORT.
It was expected that the Grand Master
Would make an explanation of the matter
in his report , but he does not refer to it.
After the introduction the report speaks of
u number of dispensations that have been
grouted during the past year to different
lodges, for various pui-|KMes, and the other
! official acts of the Grand Master which are
! not of interest to anyone except members
'of tiie order. It gives his decis
| ions in the matter of cases and
j appeals referred to him, and also
ofny-lnws submitted for his approval. It
contains the circular calling upon the lodges
; to render assistance to the brethren m
j Charleston at the time of the earthquake.
! There is also contained therein a copy of a
' circular which was sent out by Grand Mire
John 11. White, which forever cuts off an
order known as the Patriarchial Circle,
which is severely disapproved by the Odd
Follows. It is as follows:
By virtue of the authority vested in me by
the sovereign (fraud Lodge of the Independent
Order of Odd Fellows, I, John It. White, Grand
Sire, do hereto order and direct as follows:
First. That no person holding iiiem'M-rahip in
I the Patriarchal Circle or its successors, by
whatsoever name it may be known, or In any
secret organization not authorized iiy the Sov
ereign Grand Lodge, that ho*heretofore or may
hereafter require as a qualification for member
ship therein a past, present or future member
ship in this order, shall lie elected or
appointed to, or installed into any office in anv
Grand or subordiuale Lodge or Encampment
of Odd Fellows under the jurisdiction of the
Sovereign Grand Lodge; and it shall be the
duty of all installing officers, before installing
into office any person who shall have been
elected or appointed to any office In any such
Grand or suisirdinate Lodge or Encampment,
to exact from such persons an affirmation in
the following form, viz.:
“And any such person who shall neglect or re
fuse to take ami : nhscribe such affirmation
shall not be installed into office, but said office
shall be declarei v acant, und the Lodge or En
campment, as the case may be. shall proceed to
elect or appoint a qualified brother to fill the va
cancy thereby created.”
The order further prescribes that no one
shall bo admitted to membership in any sub
ordinate Lodge or Encampment, or as a
memherof or representative t<> any Grand
Lodge or Grand Encampment unless they
shall take tie: oath prescribed, and anv
Lodge Encampment or officer who shall
wilfully violate the order, or any member
or persons who shall become members, who
shall falsely subscribe to the affirmations
set forth in the onth, shall be expelled.
AN INSUBORDINATE LODGE.
The Grand Master then gives the results
of twenty-seven official visits, which show
the order to Ik. in a most flourishing condi
tion. He reports the case of Dawsonville
•Lodge No. 74, which was rejiorted to him
by D. D. G. M. S. T. Looper as being in a
state of insubordination in refusing to
nay its per capita tax. The Grain 1
Master declared its charter void
ami appointed D. D. G. M. Looper to take
from the lodge its charter, books and effects.
Tut the lodge refused to surrender t hem and
the Grand Master turns the case over to the
Grand Lodge. The District Deputy Grand
Master’s reports are given next, and they
show a flattering growth and most harmo
nious condition prevailing throughout the
whole State. The Grand Master makes the
T recommend the granting of charters for
Myrtle Lodge, No. ‘35: Friendship. No. 30; Star,
No. 3;: Pleasant Y'iew, No. ”4; Clarke, No. 30,
and Jasper, No. 31.
I recommend the reducing the fees for degrees
to a minimum of fjGO.
I recommend that an attorney be appointed
to collect the effects of the defunct Dawsonville
Lodge ami suggest the name of Col. Marshall
1. Smith, of Gainesville, who is acquainted
with nil the parties.
I recommend that the subordinate 1 alges be
requested to cultivate the fraternal feelings
more by having public reunions and pleasing
outerta nnients as frequently as possible.
I recommend that provision Ik. made for
future Grand Masters to visit subordinate
lodges. I have seen the good results growing
out of such visits.
1 recommend the appointment of a committee
of five to formulate or adopt a plan of insurance
in whioh all the Southern State; and others, if
they desire, can participate. 1 have prepared
such a plan, which, I think, will meet the re
quirements, and I wish to submit it for adoption
at this session.
I recommend that terms of office in subordi
nate lodges he made twelve instead of six
He then concludes with some personal re
marks to the Grand Lodge.
THE GRAND SECRETARY’S REPORT.
Grand Secretary John G. Deitz will make
his annual report, in which he states that
the last year has been a most fruitful one.
The membership hits been increased mid the
total money receipts were greater than for
many years. The membership is now 3,278,
and the total money receipts were $2, loti 75.
Six dispensations were granted, viz:

No. 2,5, Atlanta; Friendship Lodge No. 23,
Macedonia; Pleasant View Lodge No. 39,
Cole City; Clark Izwlg- No. 30, Athens, and
Jasper Lodge No. 81, Jasper.
The Grand Secretary reports that, there
arc several defunct lodges whose property
hits never been surrendered and ho recom
mends that steps be taken to obtain it.
Annual and semi-annual returns have been
received from forty-eight lodges, and semi
annual returns to June 20, 1887, front fifty
MR. JEREMIAH SULLIVAN’S DEATH.
He Expires at His Home After but a
Few Days Sickness.
Mr. Jeremiah Sullivan, an old and well
known citizen, died last night at 9 o'clock
at his residence. His death was rather sud
den. He had lieen sick since last Friday.
Last night he was sitting up on a sofa en
joying the cool breeze, but feeling tired lay
down to rest, but almost immediately
expired before any of ins family could get

house. Ho leaves a wife, two daughters
and two sons, Messrs. John J. Sullivan and
M. F. Sullivan. He was a native of the
county Kelt more, Ireland, and was about
65 years of ag ‘, 35 years of which wore
spent in this city. He had been for the
post. liftt'en years janitor of the Commercial
buildings and was reputed to boa very
upright citizen, retaining the confidence of
all his employers throughout.

ANOTHER DAY OF ROASTING.
Yesterday s High Temperature to be
Fans anti iced drinks of various kinds
played their jiart yesterday, but the per
spiring Sftvaunahians derived but little
comfort from them. The sun poured its
pitiless rays down in hot abundance, and
every stone reflected liack an increased de
gree of heat. The therm imeter began rising
early and reached the lop notch at
UK. The average was 87" lieing 7° higher
than the average for the last fifteen years.
All the stations in the district report a high
temperature, the highest in tbe country.

while Waycross fell back to 101*.
The night rejiorts showed a high tempera

at Marquette, Mich., where 58’ was
recorded. Shreveport, La., enjoyed

Very little rainfall is reported. A lap,ana,

Rio Grande valley, but not of sufficient
strength to move this way.
IN NEW QUARTERS.
The New York Pier of the Ocean
The Ocean Steamship Company commenced
using a portion of their new pier in New
York this week. It is a great improvement
over the old one, and the accommodations
for all departments of their immense busi
ness are ample. The structure is a
double-decker, with the offices above.
On the pier floor it is di
vided off by a central open passage way,
so two vessels can load or unload at the
same time, one at each side of the pier. It
is well arranged for quick work in this re
spect, and has all the facilities needed.
The offices are all upstairs, save that of the
receiving freight clerks. The passengers
ascend at the street end of tho
building, procure their tickets, and
descend to the vessel from the
river end, thus saving tiie old-time perilous
journey from the entrance to the vessel
through tiie tangle of teams usually on the
pier. This alone is a great Deneftt., and one
tiie traveler will feel thankful for. The
work is not nearly all completed yet, awl
will not be finished before Sept. 20.

LITTLE GOSSIP FROM THE STREET
Dashes Here and There by the News
Reporters Yesterday’s Happenings
Told in Brief Paragraphs—Pickings at
There were four arrests for fighting on the
streets, and two for drunkenness yesterday.
The Sons and Daughters of Debora will
meet at 111 o’clock to-day to attend tho fu
neral of Stephen Sevens.
Col. Deveaux, of the First Battalion of
Georgia Volunteers (colored) says that John
Reilly, who made the disturbance at Thun
derlmlt Monday, was not quartermaster of
the Lone Star" Cadets but of the Georgia
Cadets, a company not connected with the
battalion at all.
Signal Observer E. C. Hanner, of this
station, wrote to the Chief Signal Officer
last Friday volunteering to go to Key West
to relieve the observer there, who is ill. He
expects to hear to-day or to-morrow regard
ing it. Mr. Hnnner certainly is a courage
ous young man to thus boldly face the fever
scourge, and if anyone could remain there
unscathed he probably could.
A cartridge or torpedo exploded under a
horse-car wheel on Liberty street, near
Houston, at 5 o’clock last nigbt and an im
mense crowd was quickly attracted by the
repiort. Tho residents in several piarts of
the city complain greatly of tho vicious
boys and others who place these explosives
on the track. The cartridges are dangerous
and several narrow escapes from the flying
bullets have been reported.
Messrs. Freid A' Hicks, proprietors of the
Market Hi stmnant, very kindly sent to the
Morning News yesterday, the first lot of
rice birds that have been brought in. They
were somewhat unlike most of the rice
birds seen in the market, for instead of hav
ing feathers on them, they were dressed
only in toast, and it was a becoming cos
tume. If the others that ooine in are as
nice as those the restauranteurs sent to this
office, this will be a glorious year for epi
Between 7 and 8 o’clock Monday night
John Armstrong, (colored) the second cook
on the steamer Katie, fell overboard and
was drowned. No one saw him fall over
board, but the plunge in the water was
heard by a gentleman on the boat, who
looked out of one of the windows at the side
of the boat and saw Armstrong struggling
and sink out of sight iiefore anything could
tie done to rescue him. This was his first
trip, and nothing was known of him on the
boat, except that he belonged to Augusta.
The annual review and inspection of the
Eutaw Light Dragoons will take place at
Eutawviliy to-day. As it will be impossi
ble for Adjutant and Inspector General M.
L. Bonham, Jr., to be present at the inspec
tion, Capt. J. L. Weber, of the staff of Brig.
Gen. Charles St. G. Sinkler has been de
tailed to represent him on the occasion.
Lovers of the antique can see at the store
of Messrs. S. Thomas, Jr., & Bro., on King
street, an interesting relic of the Revolu
tion, in the shape of Gen. Francis Marion’s
snuff box. The box was presented by Gen.
Marion to Col. Singleton, a kinsman, and a
member of his staff, and was presented to
its present owner, Capt. Sim Adkins, the
Nestor of Charleston bar, by Col. Single
ton’s daughter over forty-five years ago.
“There was very little information ob
tainable yesterday in reference to the Sav
annah river freshet,” said yesterday’s News
and Courier. “The factors here have gen
erally come to tho conclusion, from letters
previously received from their correspond
ents, and from the stage of maturity at
which the crop has arrived, that the harvest
will be an absolute failure. They think, as
do some of the planters, that some of the
rice may be saved, but not in such quanti
ties ns would make it in any <’ gree a com
pensation for the general desti iction of the
staple in the overflowed ftelds.”
Avery painful lint not serious accident
occurred to a little daughter of Mr. John
McMillan,on King street, near the corner of
Queen street Monday afternoon. The little
girl, who is only about 3 years of age, was
playing on the pavement when one of the
iee wagons of Bayer & Cos. came along.
The child endeavored to run across the
street but slipped and fell under the wagon,
one of the rear wheels of which passed over
the lower part of her body. The driver im
mediately went to the rescue of the little
sufferer, who was taken into her house near
by and cared for. The most painful of the
injuries is to the lower part of one of the
child's legs. It is stated, however, that the
twine has not been broken. The face of the
child is also bruised, possibly by the fall
upon the street.
A local division of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers was formed in
Charleston some time ago. The organiza
tion has just been perfected, however, and
is known as the Jennings Division, No. 340,
of the Brotherhoiwi of Locomotive En
gineers, being named in honor of Mr. J. J.
Jennings, an engineer on the Northwestern
railroad, who has taken a very active part
in getting up the organization. The local
division has been started under very prom
isiiig auspices. The following are its offi -ers:
Chief Engineer, W. F. Waters; First Eu
fineer, L. M. Raymond; Second Engineer,

Monday afternoon two of Mr. S. M. Daw
sou's children, one a little girl 6 years old
and the other a boy still younger were play
ing in front of their home in Calhoun street,
opposite Wall, when they were very rudely
handled, and the boy was thrown to the
ground by a colored girl. Mr. Dawson
naturally interfered and pushed the girl
aside, when Cupid Horlbeek, an obstreper
ous colored moil, who keep* a store in
the vicinity, and who boasts, it is said,
that his cousin killed n white mania 1*76,
took part, in the affair and struck Mr.
Dawson, being backed up by three or four
other colored men. In the melee which fol
low.xl, Mr. Dawsou was struck in the mouth
with a brick and his children were roughly
handled, although s -riously hurt. There
is no telling what might have happened,
however, had not several of Mr. Dawson’s
friends arrived on the scene and saved him
from further attack. There was no police
ninn at hand to make an arrest, but Mr.
Dawson is determined to have the case
brought before a trial justice in order to
get redress fur tho outrageous treatment of
himself and children. The colored men and
women who loaf in that section are a great
source ol annoyance to the residents.

A GOOD GAME FORFEITED.
The Amateurs Refuse to Play the
The most interesting game of base ball
tliut has been played in this city during the
present season took place at the park yester
day between the Amateurs and Warrens.
The game was skillfully played and the er
rors were comparatively few. The score
stood 7 to 7 at the end of the eighth inning,
and it was so dark then that the Amateurs
refused to play and the umpire gave the
fame to the Warrens on a score of 9 to 0.

New Orleans Wins a Game in One
Inning—Arrests for Sunday Playing.
Memphis, Tenn., Aug. 16.—Owing to the
threatening aspect of the weather the at
tendance this afternoon at the game be
tween Memphis and New Orleans was small.
Just before the game was called Dave Force
was led out into the field, and presented with
a handsome silk umbrella, the gift of the
Memphis team. Tom Brennan, man
ager of the New Orleans Club,
made tho presentation speech, which
Force replied to in his usual happy style.
The game was close and exciting up to the
sixth inning, neither club having scored,
but in the last half of the fatal sixth. Rowell
led off with a home ran, knocking the ball
over the right field fence. This brake the
ice, and when the inning was finished, New-
Orltans had scored six runs, due to the
bunching of hits and errors of Andrews and
Doyle. These wore the only runs made
during the game. McVey, of the visitors,
carried off the honors by his brilliant work
in centre field, capturing three hits after
long rums, each of which seemed good for
three bags. Powell, in right field, also did
brilliant work. The score by innings and

ARRESTED FOR SUNDAY PLAYING.
Immediately after the game two Deputy
Sheriffs appeared upon the grounds and ar
rested both teams that had participated in
the Sunday game. The arrest was made on
a bench warrant issued by Judge Dubose,
of the Criminal Court, on complaint of a
minister of a colored church in the vicinity
of the grounds. All the boys were released
on $5OO bonds each, which were promptly
furnished. They are to appear in
court to-morrow morning. Ewing, the
crack pitcher of the Now Orleans club, who
last the game Saturday, dislocated his
shoulder, which had to be reset yesterday.
The accident happened while practicing be
fore the game was called on Saturday, and
he pitched six innings while suffering, not
realizing what was the matter with him.
He left for New Orleans this afternoon, and
will take a rest for two or three weeks.
