Cargo -The Origin of the Resolute’s
The British steamer Resolute has been
lying at Dixon & Murphy's wharf for the
last two days taking coal, and she has been
working night and day to get the coal
aboard, so she could put to sea. She was
cleared with 5,358 bales of cotton on Thurs
day for Liverpool. Yesterday morning,
about 4 © clock, the tally-keejier discovered
smoke issuing from the forward
hatchway. lie immediately notified
Capt. Heavier and sent a messenger
to engine house No. 1 to obtain assistance.
Meanwhile the hatches were torn o!T and ail
hands were put to work throwing water
into the hold. Engine No. 1 responded
promptly and began pumping a stream of
water into the vissel. Chief Fernandez ar
rived. and seeing that he would have a hard
Are to fight, h<- sent to headquarters for No.
3, the new engine, and also for No. 2.
No. 3 came down, but could not take water
from the plug because the three plugs were
so near together and the main
so small that only one engine
can work them at a time. The wharves,
too, were so old that he did not dare trust
an engine on them, so he had to detach the
horses and back the engine through Dixon
Murphy’s vard and on to their wharf. In
doing this the smokestack of the engine
Struck a beam and was bent forward. No.
3 was soon placed in position, however, and
No. 2 was placed near it, both taking water
from the river and pouring it into the vessel
as rapidly as they could. The firemen went
below to' be as near to the fire as possible,
but the smoke was so thick that they
could only remain below for a min
ute or two, and in trying to handle a
pipe there Chief Fernandez and six of them
were suffocated. John Gay, of No. 3;
Foreman Cullom. No. 3; I’eter Wakefield,
No. 3; Morris Sullivan, No. 3: Hugh Lor
tian, No. 1. and Dick Nugel, No. 1 were all
overcome, but all recovered soon except
John Gay, who was in a critical condition
last night. He was taken to his home on
AVest Broad and Harris streets. It was the
work of several hours to put out the fire,
and at 9 o’clock last night the engines were
still playing upon her. The cotton has
swelled, and it will be an exceedingly difii
cult matter to get it out. It will all be un
loaded, and the vessel will take on anew
cargo. The cotton was fully covered by in
surance in foreign companies. No damage
of consequence was done to the vessel as
she is built of iron.
THE DESSOUG’S BLAZE.
The firemen were at work on the Resolute
at about 11 o’clock, when the steamer Des
soug, of the Ocean Steamship Company’s
Philadelphia line, came up the river with
smoke issuing from her alter hatchway.
Bhe went up to her wharf, and ail alarm i>f
fire was turned in. The Victor responded,
and Chief Fernandez ordered No. 2 from the
A hole had been cut in her deck and the
hatches torn away, and the two engines and
the tug Cambria worked steaililv, flooding
her. The smoke was so dense t hat no one
could get t>e-low, so the engines simply
poured in their water where the smoko was
tnickest, and about 5 o’clock the fire was
extinguished. Capt. Howes and Chief Fer
nandez then went below and found the
cargo blown in every direction. The caje
tai. said that, while the ship was off Frying
Pan shoals yesterday afternoon, an explo
sion occurred aft. George Cogdin was oil
ing the sliaft in the after hold, and
be was badly burned aixiut tho
face and neck. Manuel Kost and Charles
fsrhiller, two firemen wore knocked down'
tv hiller was not hurt, but Host’s right leg
was badly bruised. Cogdin was sent to St.
Joseph's Infirmary, and at midnight his
condition was pronounced dangerous. The
explosion blew the cargo in every direction.
The scene in the hold was one of complete de
struction. Heavy boxes of goods were blown
against the ship s side and broken to splin
ters, and it is a marvel that the side of the
vessel was not blown out. All hands were
at work la-t night pumping her out and
this morning she will be towed
to Kelly’s wharf, where she will
discharge. The origin of loth fires is
a complete mystery. There was nothing in
the Resolute, that was known of, to set fire
to the cotton, and the Dessoug was not
known to have any explosive alxiard. The
Captain says that it must have been packed
in a box and ship)**! as harmless material.
A Schooner Captain Who Thinks He
Was Detained Too Long.
I beg you will report my case, which lavs
far over that of the Eilina, lately noticed.
My vessel, the American schooner Belle
Hoojier, left Barbados, a notoriously healthy
port, July 30, with cargo of sugar for Phila
delphia, where she arrived Aug. 10, went
through all quarantine regulations, dis
charged cargo, ballast anil crew, and had
vessel thoroughly cleaned; then took in
cargo of coal, shipjxd a Philadelphia crew
arid sailed for Savannah; on arrival at
Quarantine was stopped and my cargo of
omestie coal (!) was fumigated (!), with
•what object I do not know. My vessel
was detained eight ilays and then
released. This detention, with t e
quarantine fees, extra pilotage,
and towage will amount to nearly 75c. per
ton on my entire cargo, and while I cannot
collect it in this case;, I should add it to my
freight rate, should I come here again, and
other vessels in the trade will assuredly do
the same as soon as the facta become known;
so that the quarantine officials are practical ly
adding a charge of 50c. to 75c. per ton on
coal consumed in Savannah beyond what it
cost in Charleston, Port Royal or Bruns

A FIGHT AT THE MARKET.
The Arrest of a Negro Causes a Small-
There was a fight at the Market House
yesterday afternoon that drew a crowd of
nt least 200 people in a very short space of
time. It promised in the beginning to !•*' a
Filin dv affray. A negro named Mitchell
Flower has been acting in a very annoying
manner in the saloon of Charles Kohler,
and Kohler went before a magistrate some
ilavs ago and swore out a peace warrant.
Flower lives in the country and
he has not been in the city
since the warrant was issued until
to-dav when he liecame as obstreperous as
ever. The warrant was placed in the liands
of Deputy Sheriff Si Bascb who found
Flower near the Market. He notified
F’iower that he was under arrest but Flower
objected and resisted. A numis r of negroes
went to his assistance and in about two
minutes there were a dozen of them stand
ing about with knives in their hands ready
to prevent the officer from arresting his
man. Busch clung to him, however, and
Flower and his friends began an attack on
the Deputy. Policemen Durham, Hymes
and Neidlinger came to his assistance and
one of the officers was knocked down.
They then saw that they had a serious
affair on their hands and they began to use
their clutis. A few well uir*‘Cted blows
soon quelled the riot, aud Flower was at
last landed in the liarracks. Busch then
returned to the market, and before lie got
through he had Peter Houston, Charles H.
Rizzard anil Dorn del,yon in the barracks
for the parts they took in Flower’s defense.
CATTLE THIEVES IN LIMBO.
Three Negroes Arrested at Pooler
and Put in Jail.
Mr. Ben Roth well brought in from Pooler
yesterday three negroes whom he charged
with stealing a steer from him. About 10
o’clock Friday night the animal was taken
from the pen and driven some distance to the
farm of James Gay. A negro, nrmed Joe
Johnson was driving him and offered to sell
him to to Gay for 810. Gay recognized the
steer and not only refused to buy it, but
drove it back to Roth well's and made John
son go with him. Rothwell held Johnson
until yesteltiay morning when he started
with hnn f- the train to bring him to Sa
vannah. At ho depot Johnson pointed out
two otliei ...'gross, Joe Byrnes and Henry
Pollard, and be said that they were the ones
who stole the steer and gave it to him to
sell. Rothwell obtained assistance and ar
rested lioth of them. Byrnes did not want
to go with him and he fought for some
time, but finally he consented to come to
town. The prisoners were taken to the
office of Justice Waring Russell, where
warrants were sworn out and an examina
tion was held. Byrnes and Pollard say t hey
can prove an alibi. They swore that they
were at a turpentine still at station No. 2’ i
Friday night mid that they can bring wit
nesses to prove that they were there after 10
o’clock. All three were committed to jail,
however, to be held for the Superior Court.
THE PILOTS' OPPOSITION.
The Company to Dissolve this Morning
-Drawing for Vessels.
The Pilots’ company dissolves to-day at 12
m. Previous to that hour the pilots will
draw lots for the vessels in port, to decide
what pilots shall take them to sea. There
are forty-five vessels in port, and there are
thirty-one pilots. The modus operandi, by
which the allotment is made, is by placing
the names of thirty-one vessels in a hat and
each pilot drawing a name. The vessel so
drawn is placed under his charge. The
names of the other fourteen vessels and sev
enteen blanks are placed in the hat, and
another drawing is had. Those pilots draw
ing vessels have to take them out, and those
drawing blanks are relieved from that duty.
Thus some pilots have two vessels and
others only have one to attend to. In this
lottery blanks are the lucky tickets.
The entire pilot boat fleet, except the pilot
l<oat Jones, will start on a cruise to-morrow.
The pilot boat Odell went down to Tybee
yesterday and the others will sail this morn
ing. There will be more pilots on dock to
day than have been seen for a number of
years, and the opposition between the boats
promises to make the service very arduous.
NEW ENTERPRISES MOVING.
A Cold Storage and Ice Manufactory
Company to be Organized.
The preliminary stejis have been taken
looking toward the organization of the Sa
vannah Cold Storage and Ice Manufactur
ing Company. The company propose to
utilize the large brick building known as
the “Lachlison foundry,” for the storage of
meats, fruits, vegetables, beer and other
commodities. It will also manufacture ice
for-its own puiposes and also for sale. Simi
lar enterprises have been established in other
cities and have met with great success, and,
The jirospeets of the company under notice
are very encouraging.

POST D AT WORK.
The Drummers Perfecting Their Or
Post D, T. P. A., held an adjourned meet
ing at the Mai-shall House last night, and in
the absence of President Newman, Vice
President J. Belsinger presided. The object
of the meeting was to hear reports of com
mittees and continue ' the work of perfect
ing the organization. There was in attend
an< of aliout twenty-five members, which
showed plainly the great interest the drum
mers take in the association. The comnfit
to*s were not ready to make full reports
or to say more than that thev were pro
gressing with their work. Tho Post is
young still, aud though it has gone far in
the direction of organizing, the committees
are not thoroughly informed as to the exact
characters of their duties. Upon that sub
ject they desire further instruction, anil the
Post thereupon instructed the Secretary to
correspond with the secretaries of the other
1 ’ustx of the State to learn just what work
their committee.-, are doing.
The F'inance Committee reixirted that it
had obtained #175 since the last meeting,
which makes a total of about 8250 that lias
been subscribed by the wholesale merchants
to defray the expenses of the Post. The
other committees may not understand their
duties exactly, but it is evident that the
F'inance Committee knows what it has to do
and how to do it. The Committee on By
laws was not ready to report, Ixicause most
of the directors who, with Mr. H. G. Appel,
constituted the committee, have lieen ab
sent from the city. Mr. Sid A. Pughsley
and Mr. Appel were present last night, how
ever, and they stated that they would go
to work to morrow morning and have their
report ready for the next meeting. The
Railroad Committee is most anxious of all
about its duties. This is about the most im
portant committee of the Post, and its
affairs have to lie handled with great deli
cacy. It has been waiting for some
advice from State President Isaacs,
but in the meantime it is preparing itself
for active work. It reported progress, and
will meet again to-morrow.
The question of visiting Macon on Drum
mers Day of the State Fair was brought up
for consideration, and it was at first pn>
posed to attend in a body and as a Post, but
m view of the fact that the Post is yet in
its infancy it was deemed advisable not to
do so. The hotel committee, however, was
instructed to make at rangements at some
Macon hotel for the nu mbers of the Post
who will be present. Post D was careful,
however, to provide for the maintaining of
its good reputation. The proprietor of the
hotel where the members will stay will be
furnished with a list of the members of
the Post and should any one else at
tempt to palm himself off as a mem
tier of that body he will be marked.
A motion to compensate tho secretary and
treasurer for his services was introduced.
There is uo small amount of work to be
done by Mr. Boley, who occupies those posi
tions. and as his other duties are heavy it is
necessary for him to employ assistance.
The Post desired to relieve him of that
expense, and while the amount of compen
sation was referred to tho the committee on
by-laws it was resolved that he should lie
paid at the rate of 850 per annum until that
committee should report. The Post then
adopted|a*ri*olution declaring the Morn
ing News the official organ of that body,
after which it adjourned.
WITH BOOKS AND SLATES.
Children Getting Ready for the Re-
Opening of the Schools.
The public schools will reopen to-morrow
and parents and teachers are busy getting
ready for the day. Supt. Baker has been
busy for the last three days issuing cards of
admission to applicants. On Thursday he
issued 233, on Friday 330, anil yesterday
300, making a total of 803. This, of course,
does not represent the number of scholars
who will attend the schools, for those who
were in them last year may return with
out cards. It means, however, that the
increase in the ntimber of white scholars
w’M tie 803, less the few who graduated at
the last term and some few who will not
return. The schools can accommodate
3,050 scholars now that the Chatham Acad
emy has been opened, and when the session
begins there will lie but little spare room.
All the schools will have about as many
scholars as they can hold, and this is true
particularly of the white schools. The
colored schools will Fie well filled also, and
the teachers will have pupils enough to
teach during the coming year.
SPREADING THE GOSPEL.
Work of the American Bible Society
Rev. J. F. Brundage, agent of the Amer

tember report yesterday. It was the first

been done. During last month Mr. Brun
dage visited 1,087 families. Of this nuin-
Fier 381 families were without Bibles, and
the heads of 1211 families could not read a
Bible if they hail one. Altogether, 117
families and 102 individuals were supplied
with Bibles aud Testaments, making the
total number distributed during the mouth
Rev. Brundage will, during the coming

Barry & Fay in "Mulcahey’s Big Party”
the Week's Only Attraction.
The only attraction this week at the Thea
tre will he Barry & Fay in “Muleahey’s Big
Party” on Thursday night. The play is a
sequel to “Irish Aristocracy,” and is one of
Fred G. Malder’s most successful efforts. It
was brought out in Boston this season and
made a hit the first, night The Advertiser
said of it. “The play is of the same doth
and same pattern as ‘lrish Aristocracy,’ but
is better as anew garment is better than tho
old. There is more variety, and the broad
humor of the present play is on a trifle
higher level than its predecessor. It was a
success from the first.” “Billy” Barry and
Hugh Fay as “Muldoon” and “Alderman
Mulcahey,” are two as familiar characters
a-s ever trod the stage. They areas popular
in Savannah as elsewhere, and are sure to
draw a big audience. : The sale of seats will

Offered for $75,000 -The Hotel
Collector Wheaton received a letter yes

his opinion as to the eligibility of the Ogle

either as a whole or in part. The proposi
tion Is to sell a part of it on Bull and
Liberty streets for 850.000, or the whole for
The matter was a surprise to some of the
stockholders interested in the property, who
knew nothing about the proposition. It
appears that it was made under a resolution
passed at a meeting of the company, when
the directoi-s were authorized to sell
the property, to any party who would build
a hotel, for 850.000. It was afterward, as
will tx- remembered, extensively advertised,
alxmt 8.500 having been expended for that
ptirpose, but not a single resjxm.se was
elieited, although the advertisement was in
serted the leading journals in the Nortli and
West, and also in a number in the South.
In view of the apparent futility of any
effort to secure a lintel a nurntier of stock
holders, rejiresenting about 000 out of the
700 shares, agreed to offer the property to
the government. There will probably be
considerable opposition, however, to locate
the public building so far away from the
business jiart of the city.

AFTER THE FIRE.
David Weisbein’s Popular Store to be
Reopened With New Goods.
On next Wednesday Mr. David Weisbein
will reopen business at his old store, 153
Broughton street. A few months agf after
the big fire did such damage in his b.ock he
moved out. The store building has since
been put in thorough o-der, and now it is
being filled with an enfirtdy new stock of
goods. The firm announces in to-day's
News that it has no old stock to work off.
Really it is like opening anew store. Mr.
Weisbein has been in New York for some
time selecting the very best line of goods
obtainable. Every department will be
stocked with the latest, most handsome, ele
gant and stylish goods found in the New
York stores,' and Dy buying such an im
mense quantity of goods at one time they
are obtain'd at the lowest figures. When
the price mark is put on them here, patrons
will be agreeably surprised. They will find
that the}- will be able to buy the best goods
at prices not above the figures asked for an
inferior quality elsewhere. Customers w ill
therefore get more for their money than
they can at other places, and they will have
the pleasure and satisfaction of receiving
the cream of the market.
While the firm suffered by the fire, the
public will really be benefited, and thus the
old adage about it s being an ill wind that
blows nobody good is verified. In the end
it may be that this well-known house will be
benefited, because it expects to so please the
public that it will attract new patrons and
add to the immense trade which it enjoyed
before it was burned out.
An invitation is extended to the public to
visit the store, and whether callers wish to
buy or not, the firm will be pleased to show
them the beautiful stock.
Don’t wait for the rush, hut buy your winter

my customers and the public to the fact
that I have now in store the most complete
stock of furniture and carpets, and ail goods
pertaining to my business, which arc of

department you will find from the cheapest
to the very finest goods, at as low, or lower,
prices than ever offered in any Northern
city. Come and inspect the goods and com
pare, and you will find it to your advantage
to buy from me. It is a rare chance to find
an establishment which carries such a com

office furniture. In my carpet department
there is nothing in that line you may want
that Ido not have in stock. Carpets, cur
tains, portierres and oil cloths I mostly im
