DEAN'S BILL IS DOOMED.
IT WILL BE PUT ON THE SHELF
AND LEFT THERE.
Senator James Intersperses the Bill
With a Poem Eighty Lines Long -
The Penitontlary Committee of the
House Reports a Substitute for the
Advisory Board of Pardons Bill.
Atlanta., Ga., Aug. 25. —A vote w/ls
not reached in the Senate on the Dean hill
this morning as anticipated. Mr. Powell oc
cupied nearly two hours in concluding his
argument begun Tuesday.
Mr. James, of the Thirty-sixth district,
who had l>eon referred to in the speeches of
several Senators, took the floor and deliv
ered and eighty-line original poem in the
way of a spoeeh, rather ridiculing Messrs.
Dean, Powell and Roberts. It is hard to
say whether the staid old Senate was more
horrified or amused.
Mr. Butt made a short and quite forcible
speech in favor of his amendment to submit
the question to a popular vote mid against
the bill. He reviewed humorously Powell’s
three-day argument and made sonic laugh
able hits at Mr. Dean's sudden change on
the State road question, which Mr. Powell
likened to the conversion of Paul on Ins way
to Damascus. Mr. Butt said the Senator
from the Forty-second had come down from
Homo to Atlanta opposed to the sale of the
State road, but suddenly, by some legerde
main or something else, he saw that lie was
advocating a great wrong, and he fell down
and cried out, “What shall I do to be
saved?” The soothsayer stooped down and
whispered in his ear 1 , "Sell the State road,
that is the panacea for all the ills of the
people, sell the State road.”
TtIK VOICK OK TIIK PEOPLE.
Mr. Butt insisted that the question ought
to be submitted to the people. This great
property is theirs and it should not be wild
without consulting them. When the peo
ple speak they are not apt to bo wrong.
They are fully as competent us this Georgia
Senate. If they are not, God help the peo
pie. In the people there is strength and
wisdom. If you take the voice of the jm*o
pie you got nearest to the voice of God.
Mr. Butt moved that the morning hour lie
extended until the bid is disposed of.
Mr. Smith, of the Sixth District, opposed
this motion, and hoped the business would
take the usual course, but moved an indefi
nite postponement of the consideration of
A motion to adjourn prevailed.
On the motion to indefinitely postpone
the Dean bill to-morrow and conclude the
debate, there is no doubt of the defeat of
In tho House.
In the House to-day the Penitentiary
Committee reported a substitute for the
bill to create an advisory board of pardons;
and also bills to amend the charter of the
city of Macon, and to amend the act es
tablishing u eitv court of Bartow.

tho following: A hill to amend the consti
tution so as to exempt all church property
from taxation (to he ratified by two-thinls
of the next Legislature); a bill to establish
a City Court of Nowuan; a bill to make
oral slander a misdemeanor.
The Finance Committee reported ad
versely on the bill appropriating s.’>,ooo for
the North Georgia College at Dahlonega.
The adverse reiiort on the $5,000 appro
priation for the North Georgia Agricultural
College put the friends of the institution on
the war path, and Mr. Schofield, of Bibb,
moved to reconsider the action of the House
yesterday in ttossing the bill to appropriate
$5,000 for repairs of the State University.
Mr. Schofield stated that he marie this
motion in consequence of the rejiortod action
of the Finance Committee yesterday in re
jecting the bill to make a similar appropria
tion for the North Georgia Agricultural
Mr. McCord opposed the motion to re
consider. He declared himself in favor of
the appropriation for the North Georgia
College but depie.atel reconsideration of
the University bill because of the reported
adverse action of the committee. He pro
tented strongly against parsimonious sup
port, of the higher educational institutions
of the State. He also deprecated scotionul
feeling in action upon the question. He
moved to tnhlo the motion, which was lost.
The motion to reconsider prevailed by a
vote of 67 to 58.

A Peculiar State of Affairs Growing
Out of a Theft.
Grtefin, Ga., Aug. 35. —Grifiln is ntioiit
to have an interesting lawsuit in regard to
the ownership of a horse. In May, 1*77, W.
B. Hudson, a liveryman of this city, hired a
horse and buggy to a young man to drive a
few miles iu the country. Neither the
young man nor the horse and buggy over
returned, and Mr. Hudson failed iu all his
efforts to find any trace of them. Yester
day a young man well-known in Griffin,
who is connected with the Atlanta and
Hnwkinsvillo Railroad Construction Com
pany, rode n line bny horse
into town. Mr. Hudson saw the horse and
was immediately struck with something p
culiar in his ap]iearance. He stopped the
young man and examined the horse closely,
and aftoi' doing so declared that it was his
long lost horse. The gentleman who was
riding tho horse stated that it belonged to
Capt. Collier, one of the engineers of the
Atlanta mid Hawkinsvillo road, of whom
he hail borrowed it to ride into town, and
that Capt. Collier would !■ down on
tho afternoon train, and Mr. Hudson could
sottlo the matter with him. Mr. Collier
came down from Atlanta on the 4 o’clock
train, and Mr. Hudson laid lrs claim before
him. Mr. Collier stated that he bought tho
horse from a well known citizen of Atlanta,
which could lie easily proven. Mr. Hudson
swore out a possessory warrant for the
horse, and the case will lie tried before Jus
tice K. M. Collins, next Monday.

A Photograph of the Scene at the
From the Athmta (Ga.) Constitution.
Tom Woolfolk, the Bibb county assassin,
made an exhibition of feeling over the
wholesale slaughter of his family yesterday
for the first, time since his arrest.
A photograph of the dead people produced
Before the dead bodies were removed
from the house, or even the position in
which they were found wns disturbed, an
enterprising photographer of Macon
reached the residence with camera and
chemicals and photographed the scene. The
dead tiodiw were found in two rooms, and
the interior of these rooms, together with
the bloody ax yet red with the life current
of the nine people, were placed indelibly
upon the glass pie.to from which prints call
forever be made. The negative was freely
used bv tho photographer, and in a short
time the Central City was flooded with pho
tographs of the bloody scene. Newsboys
on the trains running out of Macon loaded
their pockets with tho pictures, and ready
sales were the order of the day.
Singleton Mi-oKs, a tall, fine-looking young
moonshiner, from Habersham County, was
given the photograph, with instructions to
show it to Woolfolk. Meeks took the pic
ture, and looking at it a second, shuddered.
Then he pushed his way to the cell occupied
by Woolfolk. He wns elosclv followed bv
the man of news. At the cell they halted.
The reporter pushed forward and asked:
How do you feel, Woolfolk?"
The prisoner declined to answer, and
looked from the reporter to tho ceiling
“Are you well f
An upward turn of the nose was an
“Bay. Woolfolk,” said Meeks, tho moon
shiner, “do you know this?”
As he spoke the moonshiner held the
photograph in front of the prisoner's face.
IBs eyes came in contact with it, hut rested
there but a second only. Then they rolled
quickly away and about the cell.
As quickly, however, they returned
to the picture, and then away again.
A fascination drew his eyes to want it, as
rapidly ns some unexplained feeling carried
them away. The fascination mastered the
situation, and in less time than it tokos to
tell it tho prisoner’s eyes were riveted upon
the picture The gaze was intent and
steady, and as the outlines began to lie de
fined Woolfolk began to tremble. The
tremble soon became a shake, and raising
loth hands to his face as if to shut out the
horrible bloody vision, he turned upon his
“On, liiy God! that is horrible!”
Prisoners were crowding around the door
of the i'oll nil closely watching the man on
the inside. His feelings were apparent to
all, and so intense did they ap|iear that no
one eared to intrude by littering a word.
All felt for the man who is charged with
creating the original of the picture, and
hurriedly they eased away until the reporter
and the moonshiner were alone in front
of the door. For a minute these two re
mail led quiet, and then the reporter asked:
“Is that like it, Woolfolk?’’
Slowly the man’s hands drop|<ed from his
eves anil a dull stare ensued, but no word

“Does that look natural?” he was asked
Hilenee was the only answer given by the
prisoner, except to turn around and walk

IVES’ HOUSE ATTACHED.
HE HAD IT LAVISHLY DECORATED
BUT FAILED TO PAY.
He Says It Is His Sister’s, but Pottier
& Stymus Place a Mechanics’ Lien
Upon It--Furnished and Painted in
Almost Palatial Style.
From the .Vein York World.
Another kink has been added to the tan
gled affairs of Henry 8. Ives. That young
financier’s luxurious residence at No. 136
Joralemon street, Brooklyn, which was not
included in his assignment, lias been at
tached by Puttier & Stymies, tho Fifth ave
nue firm of decorators. Notices have been
served on Ives, his sister, who ho claims
owns the lionse. and Assignee Cromwell.
The work for which the lien is filed was
decorating the ceilings and the walls of
most, of the rooms and halls. The same firm
furnished the house, and their total bill wn3
something like $.35,000. What money was
paid by Ives was applied on account of tho
furniture, and as the decorations are not
yet completed Messrs. Dottier & Stymus
liolieve that they are amply secured in levy
ing the attachment.
The senior member of the firm last night
told a reporter that no matter what slips
and failures Ives may have made in his
financial operations, his house was a success.
“1 regard it as the best in Brooklyn,” said
Mr. Pottier. “Of coarse, there are others
where more money has been expended, but
considering its size it is the most completely
furnished in thnt city. Ives lias remarkably
good taste for so young a man. The house
is small, but, it is worth easily $lOO,OOO as it
stands. It was always a mystery to me
why he wanted such a house. I don’t
lielieve he spent on an average more than
two days a week there, for ho
wns continually traveling about. His
sister, too, wns there very little. The only
explanation I could tDink of was that Ives
wanted to get married, and thought it a
gnnd plan to gel a cage before he caught tho
bird. When he first, came to us I was afraid
to trust him because he went in pretty stoop
and he would have nothing but the best.
But lie paid promptly and we kept getting
in deeper and deeper. 1 don’t know what
we will do about a carnet we ordered for
him. It is being made by Sloan and will
cost $1 ,G(KI or $1,700 for about eighty square
yards. The carpet will lie very handsome
and made to match the drawing-room fur
nishings, lieing of Louis XVI. style in
cream and gold, with flowers, trophies, etc.
“I got a little uneasy almut our account
anil early in tho summer kept at Ives
to (lav us. One good thing about him,
he resorted to no subterfuges to avoid
paying n bill. Ho came right out
flatly and said he didn’t have the
money, for everything he had was tied up.
The night he gave the big dinner to Robert
Garrett, President of the Baltimore and
Ohio railroad, and other big railroad men
at his house, I went over there. I had been
trying to eateli him to get some money and
thought that, would lie a good chance. Ives
came out to see me and told the same story
about being tied up, and said for me to come
to his office the next (lav. I did so and he
paid $5,000 on account.”
The house is described ns princely in the
extreme. Tt is small, being only 36 or 27
feet wide by about 60 feet deep and three
stories anil a basement high Ives had it
finished throughout in hard wood at a big
expense, but wns rot satisfied with it, and
then contracted with Pottier Stymus to
decorate it throughout. At the left of the
hallway, in front, is the drawing room, 30
feet wide and 30 long. It is in Ixniis XVI.
style, in ivory and gold. The walls
are covered with an application
rtf silk on paper called mauraline,
of a delicate light-blue tint, with a
dado of embossed plush of the same
color, but of a little stronger tint and sapu
ratixt by a fine gold border. The furniture
is of heavy carved wood, with brocade
lampos of cream and gold. In each of the
four corners of the room are solid bronze
candelabra standing on onyx pedestals,
with eighteen lights apiece. Pictures by
Detaille, Meissonier and other great artists
hang on tho walls. There are said to lie
fully $35,000 or $30,000 worth of these gems.
The hardwood ceiling has a large allegori
cal canvas of cupids inserted in it, and the
other woodwork enameled in ivory and gold
is relieved by carvings, bronzes, etc.
Back of this is the dining room, which
occupies the entire rear end of the house,
and is 36 feet in width and 20 deep. This is
in antique oak of Henry 11. style, with
rich, high mantels, with canvas painted in
figures and fruits inserted in the ceiling.
Rich tapestry in imitation Gobelin covers
the walls. The hallway and vestibule are
laid in mosaic stone; and the light steals
through ornamental studied glass. The
library, on the 11,Kir above, occupies the en
tire width of the house and has three win
dows. This is the only apartment in the
house that has no distinctive style, although
it might be called modern renaissance. It
is hs yet in an unfinished state, and there
are few hooks in it. Tho chandeliers are
very fine, and of a special design according
to Yvi'si fancy, and numerous paintings and
etchings are scattered about.
In the rear is the gorgeous sleeping apart
ment of Ives, with dressing and bathrooms
adjoining The walls are covered with
crimson velvet plush paper. Satin velours
cover the furniture: the curtains are in
liouis XV style and the Vemiso Martin
bedstead and bureau an' exquisitely deco
rated. Old gold damask gives a rich color
ing to it all. On the third floor, in front, is
the apartment of Ives’ sister, which is richly
furnished and decorated, and in the rear are
two snare rooms, while the attic story is
u>*c<l by t he servants.
The billiard room is in the basement., and
iB the only plain one iu the house, for even
the pantry and kitchen are in hardwood,
tiesides being decorated. But the billiard
room is very simply furnished, and there is
nothing in it but, a few chairs and the table.
The assignee is having the title searched
to ascertain if this house really belongs to
tVo* sister, and, if so when it lieeame her

SHOOTING AT OAPT. RICHARD
He Makes a Statement in' Regard to
the Shooting Sunday.
As much interest has been manifested in
the recent shooting affray in Starke, in
which Capt. J. C. Richard was shot by
George C. Miller, the following letter from
a prominent citizen of that place containing
a statement made by Capt. Richard will be
read with interest:
Starke, Fi.a., Aug. 34. 1887.— T0 the
Editor of the Timen-Union: The state
ments in your issue of Aug. if. regarding
the Kiehard-Miiler difficulty are erroneus,
and the people are being misled by them.
Capt. Richard, the victim, is well known
all over the State. In a conversation with
him yesterday I remarked that the newspa
(iers had erroneous statements concerning
the difficulty. He said:
“I have not told you the circumstances,
“I replied, “No sir."
He said: “I’ll tell you. I met Miller on
the street and told him that I had heard that
he said I had told a lie, and asked him
if the report was true. He made no definite
answer. I said to him: ‘George, you know
our agreement concerning this matter was
not to allow it to become a personal matter.
Did you say that I had told a lief’
“He evaded my question, and I said to
him: ‘lf you said so you are a lyiug son of
. if you did not uud will say so i will
take this back and apologize.’
"When I began talking he put his hand
in his front pants pocket and kept it then'
while we were talking. I thought that he
had a knife, and raised my cane to strike
his arm should ho attempt to cut me. He
jumped I lack about fifteen feet, and I
thought there was no danger at that distance
if he had only a knife, as I supposed.
After jumping back hepulled his hand from
his |>ockct with a revolver and begun firing.
I dodged the first shot, but the second struck
me in the forehead, and glancing around
below the left eve is lodged near the left ear
After I fell he tired two shots at me. 1 fired
one shot after falling, but was so blinded
and unnerved by the wound in niv head it
had no effect. Had I thought he had a
revolver in his pocket I would have cov
ered him with mine and disarmed him, but
I had no idea he had a revolver. I never
Miller is a very trifling fellow. Ho has
been married several years, and has never
supported his wife and little girl, and has
depended upon his widowed mother-in-law.
He and his wife were separated about nine
months ago and he went West. He came
back several months ago and lived a while
with his wife at her mother’s. They were

hoping to restore peace, and if possible to
again unite him anil his wife. Ho threat

at home alone. Miller does not own any

DUPED BY A STRANGER.
A Number of Colored Men and One
White Man Pay $l O for a Password.
From the Marietta (Go.) Journal.
A stranger Wednesday night week visited
the wagon yard on Cherokee street, in this
place, and inquired of Mr. Taylor what he
would charge him for staying in tho yard
that night. He was informed that it would
take three nickels to enjoy the luxury of
camping there that night. Tho stranger
went out into the yard, took in the situa
tion, and tlion informed Mr. Taylor that he
would accept, and would return shortly and
give him some of the best whisky he ever
tasted. Taylor told him if that was the
case, he didn’t care how soon lie returned.
The stranger then circulated around confi
dentiallv among the darkies and told them
that he had some whisky down at the wagon
yard for sale. Ho bargained to deliver the
whisky upon the payment then and there of
$1 each for a certain quantity, which he
would hand out through t he opening at the
gate upon each one giving the password,
“Tiger.’’ The stranger collected about $l5
in this way. One white man, we learn,
entrusted $3 with the stranger, with the
promise of receiving a gallon jug
full of corn whisky. Mr. Taylor,
in the meantime, had heard nothing further
from the stranger, hut several hours later
he was disturbed by repeated attempts of
unknown parties trying to open the gate,
and he wont out and watched, and one col
ored man after another would come up and
utter “Tiger” through the hole in the gate,
but there was no response. He knew by
that somebody had been duped by the
stranger and soon got the information and
turned the crowd of victims away. The
stranger had no whisky to sell, but pocketed
tho money ami departed to other prohibi
tion towns, where he no doubt will play the
same “Tiger” racket upon others who are
willing to part with their dollars for “ca

Fi-nm the Marietta (Ga.) Journal.
Anew claimant for some valuable city
store property has turned up in Marietta.
His name is Wade, a rather shabby looking,
unprepossessing white man, who. it is said,
lives near Chattahoochee river. He claims
that A. Cook, deceased, deeded him the two
store buildings occupied by IV. E. Oilliert
anil the one occupied by Charley Moll, and
all the land running back to the cross street
in rear of said buildings. He has been here
several days, and has called upon the occu
pants to vacate or pay him the rent. Ho
has so far failed to show any deed to the
aforesaid property, and has annoyed the
(Terk of the Court no little ts'cause there is
no record of any. He has I icon around the
stores annoying tho merchants to some ex
tent. At night he has tied red flannel on
the door Knobs of the front doors of the
stores, and told the night watchman that
the flannel strips were signals warning any
one from taking goods out of those stores.
He is evidently cranky or crazy. The
property iu question shows a good chain of
titles from A. Cook down to tho present
owners. The merchants say they intend to
have him arrested for vagrancy or lunacy
if he annoys them much further.
From the Athens (Go.) Banner- Watchman.
It is not, generally known, but it is a fact,
that hats were made in large quantities in
Jackson county Indore the war. They were
made out of wool, anil one good woven hat
made in Jackson county would last a man
during his natural life. Mr. Ol Reete. now
night watchman of the Georgia depot, was
one of the most ex)iert hat makers in the
county. Mr. Reese says that there were
three large hat. factories in the county
lieforo the war, and that MeClexky’sfactory,
near Jefferson, turned out. from 75 to
100 hats per day, which retailed at $1 35
apiece, and sold by the wholesale at from
‘.kV. to #l. These hat* contained from five
to seven ounces of lamb’s wool and would
never wear out. Mr. Reese thinks that such
an industry would pay now if projierly ruu
with first-class machinery.
