THE REGIMENT FA ROUTE.
BAVANNAH SOLDIERS TO MARCH
BEFORE THE PRESIDENT.
Four Companies on Their Way to At
lanta—The Start from Savannah—
The Send-Off at the Central Depot-
Two Train Loads of Excursionists.
Two thousand people saw the First Vol
unteer Regiment off for Atlanta last night.
The regiment carried up four companies of
160 men, and the regimental band,and trav
eled in a special train of Pullman sleepers.
Col. George A. Mercer was in command.
Half an hour lief ore the train pulled out
the Central depot was thronged. The regi
ment rendezvoused at Broughton and Bull
streets at 8 o’clock. The German Volun
teers were first in line, and were followed
by the Cadets and Blues. The Oglethorpes
came in fourth. The Irish Jasper Greens
were unable to carry up as many men as
they liked, and so decided not to go.
THE MARCH TO THE DEPOT.
At 8:80 o’clock the regiment started for
the depot. The march was short, extending
through Broughton to West Broad and
thence to the train. The crowd at the car
shed and in front of the depot cheered as the
regiment halted. As it marched through
the gates, and up the car platform, the hand
struck up Dixie and the crowd cheered and
yelled again until it was hoarse. The num
ber of men was not as large as
was expected. Many were unable at
the last moment to get away. The
Cadets had the largest roster, and, as usual,
made a fine apiiearanoe. Each coiniwuiy
occupied a separate sleeper.
A DOUBLE TRAIN.
The train went out in two sections. The
first section was made up of five Pullmans
and a Central sleeper. Every berth was
taken, and the sitting coach was crowded.
The second section had two Pullmans, two
sitting coaohes, a baggage and express car,
and smoker. At 9 o’clock the first section,
with the regiment on board, pulled out of
the depot, and the second section followed
five minutes later. Both were crowded,
and together they carried between 500 and
THE PROGRAMME IN ATLANTA.
Upon its arrival in Atlanta this morning
the regiment will march from the depot to
Pause’s restaurant for breakfast, ami will
then take up the programme for the day, as
announced m Gen. Young’s order published
in the Morning News yesterday. The
Presidential review will take place at Pied
mont Park at 10:80 o’clock, and the sham
battle will follow immediately after. The
regiment will leave Atlanta to-night in a
special train, arriving home at 6 o’clock to
The Savannah Volunteer Guards did not
go as a battalion, but quite a number went
np in 'fatigue uniform and occupied a
special Pullman sleeper.
TO REPRESENT THE GUARDS.
Among those who went were Messrs. F.
P. Rockwell, E. A. Richmond, C. A. Gibbs,
R. W. Holt, D. G. Alexander, E. P. Postell,
C. M. Daniels, G. S. Orme, W. W. Osborne,
E. R. Wood, W. S. Daflln and E. Ander
The crowd which accompanied the mili
tary, though it was not as large as that
which went up on Monday night, was
greater than it was expected it would be.

The Chatham Gun Club Does Not
Like the Way It Was Treated.
The Chatham Gun Ctub returned yester
day from Atlanta, after a trip that was
unpleasant, far m ,ny different reasons.
The team that went up to shoot consisted
of Messrs. S. M. Roach, P. B. Mays, George
L. Cope, Jr., George S. McAlpin and 11. W.
Palmer. They started on Sunday night,
but the train was delayed, and they got into
Macon at the hour at which they should
have arrived at Atlanta. They sent a tele
gram from Macon announcing the delay,
but seating that they would be on band
later in the day, and asking that
the. contest be postponed for
a few hours. Two similar telegrams were
sent from points between Macon and At
lanta, and Mr. George L. Cope, Jr., who
was in Atlanta, personally requested the
postponement of the match.
The team arrived at 2 o’clock, and, jump
ing into carriages, drove at once to the
grounds without waiting for dinner. When
they arrived they were informed that the
contest had been concluded, having been
begun at 10 o’clock as advertised. The
prize for team shooting was won by a score
of 64 out of a possible 100, and the indi
vidual prize on a score of 16 out of a possi
ble 30. This is perhaps the reason
the contest was not postponed,
because the Atlanta club knew the
Chathams had a team that was sure to make
at least 80 out of 100, one of that team being
Mr. Cope, who kills 93 out of 100; and as to
individual shooting, when Dr. Roach does
not kill 19 out of 30 there is something
wrong with the gun. One of the gentlemen,
in speaking of the matter, said that he did
not think the club had been treated courte
ously by Atlanta, whose clubs knew that
they would have been treated far differ
ently had they been coming to Savannah.
THE DISABLED SCHOONER.
She is Ordered to Boston. Instead of
The disablod schooner, John R. Bergen,
has received orders to proceed to Boston,
instead of to Delaware Breakwater. She
will proceed as soon as the tug Victoria J.
Peed, which abandoned her, arrives here
from Wilmington. The Captain obtained a
permit from the Health Officer, yesterdav,
to land three of his crew to be sent to the
hospital, one with a broken leg, one with
two of his ribs broken and another liadly
ruptured. The last two received their in
juries in the Rtorm of Oct. 12. Capt. Squires
says that the tug abandoned him twice, the
first when only two hours out from Nassau.
She became disabled, and immediately
put back to Nassau, leaving the
schooner to take care of herself.
He arrived off Nassau the morning after lie
was abandoned. The tug repaired and
again took charge of the Bergen, but on
Oct. 12 the tug however was cut and the
schooner was cast adrift on the eastern edge
of the Gulf stream, about 200 miles to the
eastward of Savannah. Capt. Squires
speaks very bitterly of the hospital authori
ties at Nassau. He says that he had the
man with the broken leg put in the hospital
there and that he was compelled to pay $95
for nine days board and treatment, mid
that the doctors failed then to i-educo the
limb which is broken .just übove the knee.
HEAVY RAINS REPORTED.
A Storm In the Northwest and One in
The midnight reports of tho signal service
show that light rains fell yesterday on the
Atlantic coast from Maine to Florida, and
heavy rains at the Gulf stations. All the
cotton districts report heavy rains, the
average for the Wilmington and New Or
leans districts being 1.85 mches.
The temperature has risen in all districts.
There is a storm in the extreme
Northwest moving Eastward, and one

THE HOME FOR THE ORPHANS.
The New and Handsomo Structure
Now Being Erected.
The Episcopal Orphans' Home building is
rapidly nearing completion, and when it is
finished it will lie one of the most perfect
of the kind in the South. It is handsome
in its design and construction, perfectly
safe from fire and accidents, large and
roomy, and with such conveniences as are
deemed necessary. It wiii not lie finished
with all the modern appliances for saving
lalior, because the children, who are so
carefully provided for, will be taught not
how to save work, but to work, in order
that when they shall come of age anil
go out to earn their own livelihood they
may be fitted for the positions they will
occupy. The building, which is being con
structod by Mr. John J. Nevitt, is
solidly built of brick, the dividing
walls being of brick to the roof,
thus dividing the house into com-
I*rtments and preventing the rapid spread
of flames should a fire ever occur. The
walls and roof are all solidly joined together
with anchor bars, which will make the
building sufficiently strong to withstand the
shock of an earthquake, unless the shock is
great enough to throw down the entire
building. The interior is divided into
dining rooms, school rooms, dormitories,
with the necessary kitchen and laundry ar
rangements, and the entire mansard is
one big room, that will lie the play room
on rainy days. The front is of white brick,
and the piazza is supported by columns of
Georgia marble, white, pink and blue.
The home was founded by Bishop Stephen
Elliott, soon after lie took charge of the
diocese, and Hon. Holiert M. Charlton, and
they, with the assistance of two charitable
ladies, pushed the work forward until they
had made the homo one of the prominent
charities of the city. Since that time in
terest has not been lagging. Under the
rectors of Christ church it has been carried
on until it outgrew the accommodations
firovided for it, and it became necessary to
ook for other quarters. Now,under thesuper
vision of Rev. Thomas Boone, the home has
made its greatest and most important step.
Charitable people made donations to the
building fund, and in a very short time
$10,090 were subscribed for the now struc
ture and its erection was liegun. Tho com
mittee having the work in charge has found
that about $5,000 more will be needed, and
in order to raise that amount, the ladies who
are interested in tho work have determined
to hold a bazar of nations in which Eng
land, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, France,
America, China and Japan will tie repre
sented. This will lie one of the events
of the winter, and it will tuke place
Dec. 6,7, 8 and 9. The addition of this
amount of money to what is now in hand
will complete the building and enable the
managers to remove the children to their
new home from Isle of Hope, where they are
now residing. There are only about thirty
children in the home at present, but tho new
building will accommodate 100 and be suffi
ciently commodious to enable the managers
to receive many children who are now turn
ed loose on the world because of insufficient

PUSHING ON THE PAVING.
The Extended Whitaker Street Pave
ment a Fine Piece of Work.
The paving of Whitaker street, from Gas
ton to New Houston, is one of the best
pieces of cobblestone work ever done in Sa
vannah. It is laid in such a manner that
the railroad track is little or no obstruction
to vehicles. The work is not quite com
pleted, there being still a small gap incom
plete near Bolton street. The removal of
tho street railway turnout near that street
is a great improvement to tho thoroughfare.
The next paving done should be that on
New Houston street. Alderman Thomas
has had the work in his mind for a long
time. A pavement 30 or 25 feet wide
through the centre of that street will be all
that is necessary. The people could then
make little “parkings,” as the grass plats in
front of sidewalks are now called, and the
street would become a very handsome thor
ouglifare. A paved street across the city
south of the park would greatly facilitate
the movements of the fire department
going to fires in that section and would also
afford a better road for funeral corteges to
Laurel Grove Cemetery.

DANGER OF A BOYCOTT.
ACTION OF THE NATIONAL UNDER
Rates on Cotton to be Largely In
creased Unless Fires are Less Fre
quent-Threatened Withdrawal of
the Companies—The City’s Protection
of the Wharves Danger in Uncov
The alarming frequency of cotton fires on
lioard of loaded or nearly loaded vessels,
and the threatened boycott of the port by
the National Underwriters’ Association un
less immediate measures are taken to pre
vent their recurrence, is causing a good deal
of stir among cotton men.
The action of the Cotton Exchange last
week in urging a rigid enforcement of tho
city ordinances in regard to smoking on
ship-board and on the wharves, and the eo
operation of the railroad companies
cotton presses was the initial step towards
diminishing the danger.
NO SMOKING ON THE WHARVES.
The city has taken measures to rigidly en
force the ordinances in regard to smoking
on or near the wharves, and is doing all it
can to protect the cotton and vessels. Tho
losses from cotton fires here within the past
two weeks foot up nearly $500,000, and the
underwriters say they cannot stand it.
J. N. Johnson received the following tele
gram yesterday addressed to Maj.H.T. Boris
from tho Secretary of the National Under
writers Association, saying that unless
something is done at once to reduce the
risk Savannah will lie declared an extra
hazardous port, or protection will be with
THE UNDERWRITERS ACT.
Nr.w York, Oct. 1”, 1887.
To Henry T. lint lx. Savannah, Ga.:
At a general meeting of the cotton under
writers held here to-day it was resolved that we
thank the Cotton F.xcbange and Chamber of
Commerce of Savannah tor the efforts they
are making to stop the recurrence of tires
ill vessels loading cotton at their port,
but that in the meantime, unless we
are satisfied at an early date, that the danger is
diminished, prompt measures will be taken to
largely increase rates on cotton from Savannah,
or to withdraw all protection; and it was further
resolved that this action be cabled Lloyds and
Liverpool underwriters. Please communicate
this to the Cotton Exchange and Chamber of
Commerce. J. Raymond Smith, Secretary.
PROMPT MEASURES TAKEN.
Mr. Johnson at once communicated with
the Cotton Exchange and with a committee
from the City Council, with a view to se
curing prompt and effective action. To
boycott the port, he said, means to take
away every bale of cotton next season and
to totally destroy business.
One of tho principal sources of danger
is the transportation of cotton up
and down the river on uncovered
lighters. This matter was placed before
Grin. Alexander Monday night, and yester
day morning President Smith, of the
Lighterage Company, was notified
that tho Ocean Steamship Com
pany will hereafter receive no more
cotton from uncovered lighters. A confer
ence was held yesterday between Mr. Smith
and Gen. Alexander, but no adjustment
was reached. The equipment of the Light
erage Company’s vessels with tarpaulin
covers will involve an outlay of several
thousand dollars, which the company is un
willing to undertake under its present con
tract with the railroad.
A NECESSARY PROTECTION.
The protection of cotton while 1 icing
transported along the wharves, from sparks
from passing tugs and steamers, the under
writers consider one of the most important
steps to be taken toward reducing the risk.
When this is done, and smoking on the
vessels and wharves is stopped, the danger
will lie greatly reduced, and there will, in
all probability, be fewer fires.
The Cotton Press Association has indorsed
tho action of the Cotton Exchange in its
efforts to lessen Ihe frequency of fires, ami
the city authorities hope, with the co-opera
tion of the railroads, cotton presses and
wharf owners to prevent a recurrence of the
losses which have iieen sustained during the
past two or three weeks.
Two arrests were made yesterday of
negroes for smoking on the wharves, and

THOSE TONNAGE DUES.
Savannah Takes Her Place In the Rear
Editor Morning Veins: Years ago
the United States Supreme
Court declared that any dues on tonnage
levied by cities in their corporate capacity
wore unlawful. Whereupon some cities,
notably Savannah, changed the wording of
the charge for harbor dues from so much
per ton register (i. e. 100 cubic feet) to so
much per lineal foot, thinking thereby to
close the judicial optics, but on the first case
made the courts declared this to be a trans
parent subterf ugc, and since then commer
cial cities have uliolished the duos entirely,
or so reduced them as to cover only the ser
vice rendered. In Boston, New York,
Philadelphia and Baltimore no dues are
charged, in Norfolk the charge is $3 per
month for coastwise steamers, and $3 a year
on sail vessels, in Wilmington it is $3 if
paid on arrival, or $5 if not paid
until the services of a harbor master
are required. In Charleston it is ?2, in
Brunswick the charge is SI, and in Fernan
dina it is "pay what you like.” In none of
these cities are the charges collected by
force. In Savannah the average charge on
coast sail vessels is $7 and on the steamers
sl2. From the latter it has not been col
lected since July 1, when payment was re
fused, but from the former it is exacted by
force and security for payment refused ab
solutely, the sailing vessel not being ablo to
carry up individual cases, whereas the cor
porate steam lines are ready and willing to
make a fight. This discriminating action is
of itself evidence of a weak case, and such
a course on the part of an individual would
justify the application of an ugly name.
It is said that this tax is levied to defray the
cost of pulling out the obstructions we out
selves placed in our river during the war!
In charity to the brain tonnage of the in
dividual who invented this reason it might
well be passed by as a joke, but taken seri
ously it makes the charge doubly illegal, for
the constitution expressly prohibits pay
ment of war debts. Even if wfl might
honestly levy tribute on the shipping of
other States and countries to pay for our
own war acts, it could only be done during
the time the channel was kept open by the
city, and as the general government has
long ago taken the work in charge the
claim is outlawed. In fact there seems to
l>e no ground to justify this exaction, and
any one who will read the utterances of the
United States Judges on this subject can
hardly fail to perceive that it is unlawful.
If a city deliberately violates those decrees
upon which all its own rights depend, how
can the corporate authorities of that city
expect its people to obey the laws which
may be by themselves in turn enacted 1
Hecker’s Grand Display at the Pied
One of the finest displays in the Main
Building is that of specialties manufactured
by Messrs. George V. Hecker & Cos., of
New York, who have had forty years’ ex
perience in the manufacture of a line of
goods, the healthfulness and standard ex
cellence of which are sufficiently guaran
teed by forty years of continuous satis
factory use by the public. Hecker’s Croton
Flouring Mills, of New' York, have a capaci
ty of 3,500 barre’g, and this immense capacity
is being fully tested by the world-wide de
mands for his products.
The exhibit is in charge of Mr. Charles H.
Baker, traveling agent for the company
(who has been with them for several years)
and consists of Self-raising Flour, Seif-rais
ing Buckwheat Flour, Self-raising Griddle
Cake Flour, Hecker s partially cooked Oat
meal, Meeker's Wheat Granules, and Heck
er’s Farina. Over 10,000 visitors at the ex
position have tested the buckwheat and
griddle cakes, muffins and biscuit made
from Hecker’s Flour and cooked in their
presence. The old saying that “the proof
of the pudding is the eating,” is well illus
trated here, and it proves to be a most ad
mirable way of advertising, as it gives a
practical and satisfactory demonstration of
the merits of the goods. Words of the high
est commendation come from all who have
tasted. The finest buckwheat cake that
the writer ever ate in his life, was mixed
ami cooked from flour taken from a freshly
opened package in just two and one-quarter
minutes, and the cooks do not pretend to be
experts either. The value of this feature
can be appreciated by those who are often
blessed by the arrival of company unexpect
edly. All are invited to test the goods.
A barrel of ordinary flour will consume
about $5 worth of good baking powder
when baked into biscuits. This expense is
entirely saved by the use of Hecker’s Self
raising Flour—quite a consideration in the
way of economy.
Messrs. Wylly & Greene are the Atlanta
agents, of whom the gooods can be obtained.

Lovell & Lattimore’s Best Heater.
Owing to the near approach of cold
weather, we consider this just the time to
sound the praise of the Franklin Firelight,
one of the very best of practical and service
able heating stoves in existence. We put
the Firelight in every position, and it works
just the same with the very best results to
the purchaser. It has a deep coal grate and
sheet-iron back, and when in full fire throws
off a heat nearly double that of all the other
stoves of similar style that we have sold.
