No stops will bo made except at the points above mentioned, and in no instance can the time given to cities where stops are to be made be extended. The fact that the jour ney is timed to mee- fixed engagements will prevent any exceptions to this determina tion, but through the day in passing all places of any considerable size the train will be run at a very slow rate of speed. ,111 reception committees have l>eeii re quested to meet the President at their re spective cities instead of en route as has been proposed in some instances. This is to enable the party to get as much rest and quiet as jwssiblo while traveling. At the suggestion of the President much proiipsed speech making at places to be vis ited has been abandoned, and instead an im portent feature in the programme at each place-will be carriage rales about the cities over previously announced routes, which will gratify his desire to see the towns and their populations and enable all to see the President without the dis comforts and dangers attending crowded rooms and platforms. Formal acceptances of invitations from these cities will now be made, earlier notice having been impossible on account of the uncertainty as to the route and dates. COMMERCE WITH SPAIN.

Mr. Hystop, measurer of the New York Yacht Club, made out-boani and in board meas urements of the Thistle. While the water was being pumped out of the dock her water litre, stem, boflrsprit, main boom, gaff mainmast and topmast were measured. From what could be seen of her bottom there appeared to be a general resemblance to the Volunteer with the ex ception of the rounding of the side in the Thistle. This does not extend so low or so far aft as in the big white sloop. Then, too, all talk of her model being so different from the standard cutter was all nonsense. She is a typical cutter. Although she is not so foul as was thought, she is rough only where the point is worn off in patches. When the entire keel was revealed it was seen that there was not a straight line in her hull. Her bow made a sharp angle to the midship section, and from there to the stern jiost. There was also a slight curve in the bottom of the keel The princi pal shoulders of the yacht are amidship, or nearly so, and it is in that place that the model makes any pretense of beam. Capt. Joe Ellswortk said, after looking very care fully over the vessel, that there was not enough boat there to beat the Volunteer. Steward Nels Olsen, of the New York Yacht Club, said she was more like a big catboat. in build than anything else. Critics, while admir ing her bow and overhang, agreed that she was not a boat to stand rough weather, but they believe, as they have done all along, that sis* will be a very fast boat in light weather. CYCLONIC PRANKS. Key West Reports Very Threatening 1 Weather—New Orleans’ Flood. New Orleans, Sept. 31. —A special from Key West to the Picayune, says ■ “The ef fects of the late storm, which still lingers in this latitude, continues to be felt here. Throughout the day the weather has been squally. The barometer continues depress ed, being now—s p. m.—39.9U, and the tem perature 81’. The wind is east northeast, and at 3 o’clock had a velocity of 30 miles an hour. The outlook in the Gulf to-night is threatening.” NEW ORLEANS’ FLOOD. The water in the canals leading from this city into Lake Pontchartrain has receded a few inches, hut the rear part of the city, west of Johnson street and between the old and new hasin, is almost entirely covered with water from the crevasses in the embankment of Rayou St. John, between Broad and Galvez streets. These breaks are 40 feet wide and several feet deep, and the water is pouring through them like a mill race. The House of the Good Shepherd, situated on Bienville street, near Broad, can only be reached by boat. The city authorities have a large force at work, and hope to have the breaks closed by morning. The track of the Louisville and Nashville railroad is now clear of water, and trains are running us usual. RICH IN POOR STOCKS. Grovesteen & Poll’s Assignee Tells of the Firm’s Assets. New York, Sept. 21.—The assignee of Grovesteen & Pell says that the assets con sist principally of $796,000 in first consoli dated bonds of the East and West Alabama Railway Company, $635,000 of the Rome and Decatur Railway Company’s first mortgage bonds, shares of tlie East and West Alabama Railway Company of the nominal value of $303,150, and shares of the Rome and Decatur Railway Company’* stock of tho nominal value of $332,800; $490,000 in the Bankers’ and Mer chants’ Telegraph Company’s bonds, 1750 shares of Commercial Telegraph Company preferred stock and other securi ties in smaller amounts, together with cer tain indebtedness to the firm, the largest b -ing $112,009 on a loan made to Watson Matthews, for which the firm hoids as col lateral $452,000 of the Carolina Central Railway Company’s second mortgage bonds and $50,000 in Carolina Central third mort gage bonds. The assignee says the unset tled state of the stock market accounts tor the depreciation of the securities in which the firm dealt. These have no market value at present. OHIO’S COLOR LINE. The Buckeye Parents Don’t Want Blacks In the Schools. Cincinnati. Sept. 21.—The operation of the law off last winter which repealed tho statute authorizing the establishment of separate schools for colored pupils is pro ducing friction in some places. At Oxford, Ohio, the colored pupils nearly all deserted their own school and applied for admission to the white school. A public meeting was held and the school board was asked to order the colored pupils to their own school. The hoard complied with the request and the colored people propose to apply for a mandamus. At Yellow Springs the school board has ordered the schools closed indefinitely, or until tho Legislature can meet and take some-action. At Ripley, Ohio, suit in mandamus has been entered to compel the school board to admit colored pupils. CHATS WORTH'S CRASH. The Company’s Report Made to the Railroad Commissioners. Springfield, 111., Kept. 21.—President E. F. Leonard, of the Toledo, Peoria and Western, has filed with the Ktate Railroad anil Warehouse Commission an official re port of tho Chatewortii accident. The doc ument says nothing of the circumstances under which the train was wrecked, nor does it attempt to locate the raqiousibility for the wreck. The rejsirt esti mates from tho number of tickets sold that there were 501 persons on the train, of whom eighty are now dead. The numtier injured Kgiven as 151, ten of whom were employe* of tr.e road.

SAVANNAH, GA., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1887. PREVENTING A BIG PANIC CLEVELAND TRYING TO RELIEVE THE MONEY MARKET. The Government Gives Notice that It Stands Ready to Make Purchases Daily of 4 1-2 and 4 Per Cent. Bonds Unexpectedly—Small Offerings the Past Week. Washington, Sept 31.— The offerings of bonds to-day to the Government aggregated $1,370,000 at urices ranging from 107.90 to 110. The light offerings of bonds to-day was a disagreeable surprise to the treasury officials. Acting Secretary Thompson said that the amount of bonds offered was uot as large as he had expected, still the prices asked were generally reasona ble. Touching the future policy of the de partment with reference to bond purchases, Secretary Thompson said that it would be improper to make any statement in ad vance. If there should be a change in the present policy it would be known only by the action of the Treasury and not by means of any preliminary statement of intentions. declined to say. For this reason he declined to say whether it is the intention to extend the "system of purchases to the 4 pet- cent, bonds or to ask proposals for selling a lump sum of 10,000,- 000 or $15,000,000 4Li per cents, to the gov ernment to supply "the requirements of the sinking fund. These and all other plans that had been suggested for the relief of the money market had, he said, been carefully considered, but no decision had yet been reached. When it is it will, as already stated, be announced to the public only through the action of the department. Be fore and after to-day’s purchases the acting secretary consulted with the President, who is taking an active interest in the financial situation. The total of the purchases to-day is sl,- 065,300, at prices ranging from 107.90 to 108 THE BATEMAN CHARGE. A Wall street paper called the Indicator publishes a number of questions which it calls upon Acting Secretary Thompson, of the Treasury, to answer, implying that the Secretary has some connection with A. E. Bateman, of the New York firm of Green & Bateman, which is prominent ly associated with the bear campaign and that the latter has quietly dictated the purchase of bonds, etc. While the charge is indirect, it is made in a covert way that seems to mean a great deal Secretary Thompson when spoken to by a Star re porter on the subject, replied that he didn't know Mr. Bateman, and liad never seen him in his life that he was aware of. CLEVELAND’S PERSONAL ATTENTION. The President is personally directing the financial operations of the Treasury Depart ment. He is consulted at all times, of course, when any important action is to be taken, but just now, M the absence of Sec retary Fairchild, tlie President is practically the head of the Treasury Department, for the present at least. That a bid of 199 to day would have been certain of acceptance is pretty well known, of course, to other holders of 4!./. and had they/lesired money they would probably have sent in their bonds at the above prices, yet the offers ag gregated only $1,370,000. This tends to make the impression here that the agitation in New York is artificial and .speculative. A CONSERVATIVE POLICY. The policy of the adminsitration will be conservative. The fact is recognized that at best any relief that it can grant will be of the most temporary character. It really can do nothing but buy bonds and discount interest. It cannot loan money and it can not make larger deposits than the banks protect. (Congress, and Congress otdy, can reduce the war taxes, tariff mid internal revenue. But the President has no present intention of calling an extra session of Con gress, as it could not meet before November and could accomplish little in the additional time thus gained. When it meets in December a tax reduction bill will have been prepared which will cut down the revenue from SBO,- 000,009 to $90,000,090 by repealing tobacco taxes and reducing the tariff taxes. Let Congress promptly pass that and the present trouble predicted by President Cleveland, Secretary Manning and Secretary Fairchild for the last two years will he abolished. A CALL FOR 4}<£S AND 48. Washington, Sept. 31, 11 p. m.—Assist ant Secretary Thompson and Treasurer Hyatt held a long conference with t he Presi dent to-night, remaining at the White House until about 11 o’clock. At midnight the following circular was given to the press. It will lie issued from the Treasury Department to-morrow: “Oil and after this date the government will purchase daily, until Oct. 8. |SB7. at tha office of the Secre tary of the Treasury, to lie applied to the sinking fund, United States percent, bonds of 1891 and 4 per cent, bondsof 1907, acts of July 11, 1870. and Jan. 30.1871, upon the following terms: 4 1 *7 per cent, bonds will be accepted at 108 and four-tenths (108.4) during the nbovo stated period, and four per cent, bonds during the remainder of the present month at one hundred and twenty-five (135). and from October 1 to Oc tober*, 1887, at one hundred and twenty-four (134), which prices include accrued interest to date of purchase The aggregate amount of both classes of bonds which will lie accepted within the time nlsive specified is not to exccisl $11,000,000.

The Campaign the Liveliest In Ten nessee Since the War. Chattanooga, Sept. 31.—The prohibition campaign, which is now at its height, is arousing the greatest interest throughout the State, and is producing greater excite ment than any election since the war.

The Prohibitionists nro making a vigorous and aggressive campaign, and have enlisted the aid and active co-opera tion of the leading Prohibitionists itt America. Perfect organization is formed, and speeches are delivered daily at nearly every important town and city in the State. The preachers have taken the stump and temperance women are speaking from the hustings. • the w. C. T. u. Tho Woman’s Christian Temperance Union has actively joined in tho canvass, and in every loading town ladies and chil dren wear prohibition badges, and attend all the meetings by thousands. The women in the large cities are making a house-to house canvass, and dispatches to the Times indicate an intensity of feeling heretofore unparalleled. Tho Antis are making a still hunt. A few speeches are being delivered, but hard personal work is being done. Poli ticians are beginning to participate, but are nearly equally divided on tho subject. Some of the leading Democrats have just taken the stump in opposition to the amendment. HOW THE PRESS STANDS. Of the daily press, four of the leading newspatiers in the State are non-commital, two are pronounced for the amendment, and one is aggressively opposed to it. A majority of the weekly papers oppose it. The negroes seem to he concentrating in the opposition, but the Prohibitionists are now claiming one-third of the col ored vote. Opinions vary on the result, but politicians predict the defeat of the measure. In some of the largo cities women and children will be at the polls. Large placards hearing the words “God bloss our homes,” “Save the mothers, wives and children,” etc., will tie conspicu ously displayed on election day at all tho leading voting precincts in the State.

O’BRIEN TO DIE GAME. PRISON GARB AND HARD LABOR TO BE RESISTED. Evicted Tenant Kilbride Elected a Member of the House of Commons— Mr. Harrington Gives the Mltchells town Sergehnt Another Tongue- Lashing—Fighting the Proclamation. Mitohellstown, Kept. 31. —John Dillon was a witness to-day at the inquest into the Mitohellstown fatal riot. Mr. Harrington complained that a Dublin paper hail declared that the police would lie justified in making him acquainted with the peculiarities of a horso-pond. This language, ho said, was an incitement to tho police to commit violence, ami tho court should not permit such lan guage to bo used with impunity. Mr. Murphy, while not justifying the course of the piqier, considered that Mr. Harrington's calling Sergt. Ryder a murderer and villain pro voked tho comment. Buck language lmd never been uttered without meeting with re proof in any court in tho civilized world. Mr. Harrington retorted that he should eon tinue to use tho same language The Coro ner "deprecated the retort. Korgt. Ryder was then recalled. In the course of his testimony he said: “Mr. Harrington called me a murderer, scoundrel and ruffian, and said he would kick me off a chair.’’ Harrington—l call you a liar in addition to scoundrel, when you make such a state ment. I will call you a murderer again, and before I have done with you I will get for you the punishment of a murderer. ONSLAUGHT OF THE POLICE. Mr. Dillon deposed that the police entered the crowd without giving warning. He saw them pressed back, and shouted: “le>t these men alone.” The meeting then proceeded quietly until a second attack was made by the police. He followed the retreating con stables to their barracks and found a few persons outside the buildings. He failed to induce the inspector to withdraw tho police. That officer, however, withdrew his men subsequently. Magistrate Beagrave arrived simultaneously with the military, and to Mr. Dillon’s request not to march troops through the crowded streets, turned hack and muttered something like “I am not here to answer the questions of every d— jackanapes.” The inquest was ad journed until Tuesday. THE THUNDERER ON DILLON’S SPEECH. London, Kept. 21.—Tho Times, com menting on the siioeeh made by Mr. Dillon, at the meeting of the National League in Lim erick yesterday, said: “Mr. Dillon’s speech reads rather like an unconscious confession of weakness. There will lie many more such confessions if the government continues steadily and unflinchingly in its task of vindicating the law. The law is now really a power and has passed away from juries of iieriured jiarti sans Mr. Dillon and his kind are natu rally anxious to sustain the erroi-s of the league. We do uot disguise from ourselves the fact that the struggle will be a sharp one.” * Mr. Gladstone has written a letter to a Glasgow Liberal, in which he deplores the grave acts of the Irish police against the people of Mitohellstown, and what is still graver, the approval of those acts by the government. He continues: “I trust the country will not be slow to ‘condemn that, indirect approval, given without awaiting the result of an inquiry, and thereby discourage a repetition of the proceedings it was eminently calculated to promote.” PROCLAIMED LOCALITIES. Dublin, Sept. 21. — Freeman's Journal says the localities in Ireland proclaimed yesterday by the government, are those in which the most sweeping evictions have taken place, and argues that these localities have been selected because the landlords are losing the fight they alono wantonly pro voked. KILBRIDE SENT TO PARLIAMENT. Mr. Kilbride, the gentleman who aecom ponied William O’Brien to Canada in his tour against tho Marquis of Lansdowne, was to-day elected without opposition to represent Houth Kerry in tho House of Commons. Mr. Kilbride was the Marquis of Lansdowne’* principal tenant, paying $3,800 per year for a farm valued by the government appraisers at hut $2,100, and the emergency men who executed the evic tion broke into Mr. Kilbride’s house and threw tho furniture out so violently that nearly all of it was broken to pieces. MEETING FOR COMMON ACTION. The members of the league in the pro claimed localities are uniting for common action. They will hold a numlx-r of meet ings on Sunday in defiance of the prohibition. At a meeting of the Kilkeo carmen to-day it was resolved to defy the league's orders not to drive police. Tho car men afterwards drove police to and from tho Moveen evic tions.

If He Hod Never Been an Anarchist Before, His Recent -Experience with Courts and the Law Would Have Made Him one-8,000 Sign the Petition. Chicago, Sept. 31. —The number of sig. natures to the |>etitioii for mercy on Iwdmlf of the Anarchists reached about 8,000 yes terday, counting those that the committee of the Amnesty Association had received actual returns of. Of this number about S,IMX> were in the city and the remainer were scattered through the State. There hex lieen no system discovered yet by the com mittee to circulate the petition. At pres* it blanks und circulars are being sent to Hunt prominent iu labor organizations. The committee has written out another appeal to go at the head of the petition blanks. ITS DRIFT. It is more voluminous than the first one, and caters to the passions of those who, even in the jH'tition for clemency, cannot foi-ego expressions of abuse against the judicial procedure, Ivy which the Anarchists were convicted. This |ietition was drawn up as an experiment, and will be submitted to the Amnesty Association at its meet ings 10-night. A member of the committee said yesierday: “As far as tlia indignation at the verdict is concerned, I think myself, that, the verdict was a burn ing shame and an outrage. But it U en tirely out of place to put anything ol' than sort Into a petition for clemency, aid I, for one, am setting aside my personal feelings in the matter entirely.” PARSONS FURNISHES A STATEMENT, A. R Parsons, the condemned Anarchist, sent for a reporter to-<iay and gave out for publication a long document addressed t/> “The American People," and made a special request that it lie published without altera tion. He quotes at length the evidence nmi rulings of the Supreme Court; says that the sjieeches credited to him in the trial were garbled extract* by excited and imaginative newspajier t |H>rters; that his Hayinarket speech did not excite the riot, and that there was no con nection between his speeches and the death of (Ullcer Began. He says the evidence did not siiow him guilty, but proved his inno cence, and that he has been convicted as on Anarchist and not as a murderer. HIS SURRENDER. He came and gave himself up for a fair trial, and appeals to the American peopla to avert the awful crime of judicial mur der. Lovers of justice are engaged in an effort to thwart tho consummation of judi cial murder by commutation of sentence to prison. For this I thank them, but lam an innocent man. lam sacrificed to those who say "these men may be inno cent but they nre Anarchists.” lam pre pared to lay down my life for my rights and the rights of my fellow-men, but I object to being killed on false and unproven accusations, therefore I cannot countenance or accept the effort* of those who would en deavor to procure commutation of my sentence to imprisonment in the peniten tiary. FURTHER APPEALS DISAPPROVED. “Neither do I approve of any fur ther appeals to the courts of law. As between capital and its legal rights and lalnir and its rights the oourto must decide with the capitalists] classes. An appeal to them would be the upiieal of a wage slave to his capitalistic master for liberty. If I hail never been an Anarchist before, my experience with the court and laws would make an Anarchist of me now. I appeal not for mercy bu„ 'or justice.” After again saying that he will not accept com mutation of sentence, he closes by quoting the language of Patrick Henry: “Give me liberty or givo me death.” AN ANARCHIST CIRCULAR.
