SHE PLAYED HIM FALSE.
A QUAKER CITY LOVER TAKEN
CARE OP BY THE POLICE.
A. W. Getze Arrested at the Charleston
Depot and held For Philadelphia
Detectives The Story of a Wooing
That Was Not Reciprocated.
Night before Inst Chief of Police Ander
son received a telegram from Mrs. J. A.
Getze, 423 South Fifteenth street, Philadel
phia, stating that her son, A. W. Getze, had
stolen money from her, and askiug that he
be detained when lie arrived iu Savannah,
whither he was bound, and held to await
the action of the ]K)liee authorities of Phila
delphia. Chief Anderson placed the ease in
the hands of bergt. Owen Keilly, who es
tablished a watch upon all trains entering
the city, and prepaiwl for the recep
tion of the ruuawuy. Sergt.. Iteilly was
at the Savannah, Florida and Western depot
yesterday morning when the south bound,
fast mail train came in and when it stopped
a young man apparently about 30 years old,
neatly dressed, with light hair and not much
of it on the top of his head.a light moustache,
and blue eyes, stepped off the car. The of
fleer approached the young mail and asked
him if he wns Mr. A. 4\. Getze. Here
plied in the affirmative, and he was notified
that he was under arrest and would remain
so until something more was heard from
THE STORY OK HtS WRONG DOING.
Getze was soen in the barracks anil was
niked for particulars of the case, lie was
very much annoyed at being locked up, and
was very nervous. He was not inclined to
talk at first,but after awhile he loosened his
tongue and told his story. He said that lie
ltaii not be'm at work for some time and he
itad been living a llfo that, was not in accord
with the accepted tlteories regarding recti
tude and virtue. He was deeply in love
with a black-haired, dark-eyed Danish dam
sel named Emily, anti upon her lie lavished
al! the spondulicks that he could acquire.
He loved her deeply anti ardently, but to
his great sorrow lie found that his affection
awakened no responsive echo in the empty
balls of her heart, and liis burden
of sorrow was made too heavy when on the
day after lie had lavishly spent his money
in the purcht' -e of shoes for her little boy
and trimmings for her bonnet, she left
Philadelphia without letting him know that
she was going.
This was too cold a return for his warm
devotion and in a spirit of desperation he
•'took ' S4O that belonged to his mother ami
left in search of her. He found that she
was in Savannah and toward this city he
WANTED TO TURN BACK.
When he reached Washington he began
to repent. He would have gone back, but
he could not. He could not face his mother,
who knew of his relations with Emily, and
who must have discovered that he had
‘•taken” S4O from her, so he determined to
follow his fair mistress to the end and have
fevenge upon her for her cold anil cruel
treatment. He is now of the opinion that
his room in the barracks is colder than she
was, and ho wished he was bark with liis
“Did you have any trouble with the
woman prior to her departure?” lie was
“No, but. she did not love me, and I adored
her. I have made a fool of myself for her
sake, and she does not care at all for me.”
“You were of eoui’se lavish in your at
tentions to her ?”
“I spent every cent I had on her.”
“And still she did not care for you I"
“No. 1 bought shoes for her little child,
though it was not mine, but she ruu off and
"Why did you follow her!”
BENT ON REVENGE.
“For revenge. I meant to lie revenged.”
“You were deeply wounded, and you
meant that she should suffer for it?”
“Yes. I would te revenged.”
“What would you have done had you
found her? Would you have killed her?”
“No,” he said, with hesitation, “but I
would have talked to her.”
“And that would have been your re
“Yes. To tell her what a cruel woman I
"Suppose your mother gets hold of you,
what will she do with you?”
“Well, 1 think she’ll hustle me off to an
inebriate asylum, where I ought to go. My
head is not right. There h something mov
ing up her*-." tapping the bald spot on his
cranium: “I’ve been living u wild, desperate
life, but since I've been looked up I’ve been
thinking of turning over anew leaf.”
“Do you think your mother wants to put
you in an asylum?’
“1 don’t know that she wants me.”
“She telegraphed for you—Mrs. J. A.
Getze, 420 South Fifteenth street, Philadel
“Well,that ought to lie 422. Wo don’t live
“Well, is that what she wants with you?”
“My friend, I don’t know anything more
about wlmt nia wants than you do. Officer,
do you think there is any chance of my get
ting out of here to-morrow?”
The officer on duty said the chief would
lie around about 8:30 o’clock, and Getze
would know then.
THE WOMAN’S STORY.
The woman, who is known here as Anny,
was seen where she is staying in the eastern
part of the city, and questioned regarding
Getze and her relations with him. She said
bhe thought Getze was a crank, clean off,
and when she heard ho was coining to
Savannah she had the Sergeant place two
policemen in front of her house to keep him
away from her. She wanted to get rid of
him, but that was not the rcas >n she left
Philadelphia. She had heart! of the South
and wanted to spend a seas n under its
genial sun and that was the reason she
came here. As for w hat Getze spent she
thought he only bought the shoes and ribbon
ns an net of friendship. She did
not think she belonged to him be
cause he spent 75c. for shoes for her child.
She hoped that his mother would take care
of him for she thought he needed to be taken
care of. A party who knows Getze says
that he is crazy, that if he had anything
against the woman he would kill her. Mrs.
Getze has been informed of her son’s arrest,
and he is held to await a reply.
THE SYLVIA’S CONDITION.
The Board of Survey Hakes its Re
port—The Vessel to be Repaired.
The report of the survey held on the
British steamship Sylvia on Thursday was
made public yesterday morning. The two
forward compartments of the vessel were
thoroughly examined aiul the beams on the
starboard head of the bulkhead are found
bulged and bent, the water-tight bulkhead
was started and bulged and some plates on
the starlxwd side wore bent inward. The
forecastle, wooden deck and wooden bulk
brad were burned, and the upper forecastle
and upper deck were also burned. In hold
No. 3 the stanchions were bent and broken,
and the lining on the engine bulkhead was
started. The board recommended that the
outside plates bo caulked, ami the deck and
ceilings be repaired. With these temporary
rcjiairs the Sylvia is considered seaworthy,
but ou account of boing aground while
flooded the board recommended that she lie
docked for examination on reaching her

DAHLBERG STILL IN JAIL.
The Swedish "Professor” Making Music
Behind Prison Bars and Bolts.
A Danish composer Thaiberg arranged
“Home, Sweet Home,” und the Danish pro
fessor Dahlberg is now trying to arrange
something similar. He has a very neat
home out on Hall street, but he is not satis
fied with that, and he wants to get out. It
is probable that those w ith w hom he has
been connected during his stay in the city
will aid him and his release will be effected
He will be a changed man. however. No
longer will he bear high liis head as of yore,
“Prof.” Dahlberg has failen, and he who
claimed that a king's ransom would lie the
price demanded for the safety of lum who
dared lay his hand upon him will now try
to raise piastres to get hinn*‘lf out of trouble.
Powers <Sc Watson, proprietors of the Pu
laski House, got, after the “Professor” on
Thursday for their bill of $53. He could
not pay it and that was all there
was to it. A few minutes
after his interview with the proprietors, he
was passing Justice Russell's office, and De
tective Wotherhorn invited him in. Having
entered, he was seized to pay his hotel lull.
He could not do it, and the detective laid
bis hand upon the professor’s shoulder, the
m-cessary accompaniment, in novels, to the
announcement that he was under arrest,
and the lugh-toned musician said, with in
“Don’t touch me. If you lay yow hnnt
<ni mo it vill cost you a million tollar. Don’t
you touch me.”
The detective went to the rear of the office
and,brought out a pair of “darbies.” "Put
these on,” he said.
“Ob, let me talk to you. my tear sir,”
replied the professor, as he smoothed the
wrinkles in the shoulder of the detective’s
coat. “I don’t want someting like dut.
Oh, send for Mr. Bowers. let me talk to
Mr. Powers was sent for, and when he
appeared he asked Dahlberg if he could
make any arrangements to pay bis bill.
“1 haf no money,” he replied. “Well,"
said Mr. Powers. “If you don’t pay that
bill I’ll put you in the cooler.”
“Vat iss dat cooler?” asked the astonished
“Oh, don’t talk like dot. I gif mv con
i' >rt dis efening and den I pay you.’’ An
idea seemed to strike Mr. Powers, and after
a few minutes of deliberation lie proposed
to the professor that he should give the
clerk of the hotel an order to stand at the
door and take all the cash that came in to
the office at the concert hull until the
amount of the bill had been collected. He
readily consented to that and when the or
der was writteu he signed it, but it never
went into effect.

The Mac Collin Company in “Francois,

The Mac Collin Opera Company sang
“Francois, the Blue Stocking,” before a
good audience last night. The weather the
past two nights has been against the com

nearly ns large as they would have been
w ith good weather. Last night’s opera was
well given. “Francois, the Blue Stocking,”
was first commenced by Bcrnicat, who died
before it was finished. It was then taken
up by Varney, tho present composer, who
brought it out under the title of “Victor,
fhc Blue Stocking,” and it was changed and
added to until it has become the present
The cast embraced the same voices as ‘ ‘ Beg -
gar Student” and “Merry War,” and the
parts were every one of them well sustained.
The song, “Head the Answer in the Still's,”
by the trio, Mr. Mac Collin, Newborough
and Miss Alice Gaillard, was the most humor
ous thing of the evening. Their hits on tho
country in general, especially the bank
cashier, were encored.
To-night closes the company’s engagement
in Savannah. “Merry War” will bo re
peated at the matinee and the “Beggar

Tho next attraction will be John S. Clarke,
on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

be Mr. Clarke's first appearance here. He
is managed by John T. Ford, and has been
received with the greatest enthusiasm in
Philadelphia and Baltimore, where he has
just closed his engagement before starting

Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup should
always be used when children are cutting
teeth. It relieves the little suffer at once; it
produces natural, quiet sleep by relieving
the child from pain and the little cherub

It is very pleasant to taste. It soothes the
child, softens the gums, allays all pain, re
lieves wind, regulates the bowels, and is the
best known remedy for diarrhrea, whether
arising from teething or other causes. 25
cents a bottle.

alone in the matte!' of an obsolete tonnage
tax a suggestion tiiat the world moves, and
that we should try to keep “in the swim” is
to him a bete noir. Any one who proposes
change or anew enterprise of whatever name
or nature is to Sir B. a public enemy.
Years ago the Central Railroad Company
proposed to run its track along the river
front in order to utilize tho wharves and
storehouses, but Lord Decimus hung his in
junction on the outer wall and our wharves
are idle and tho storehouses empty. Re
cently some enterprising parties proposed
to improve and utilize a bit of waste land
right m the shadow of the circumlocution
office, which has been used by the city as a
dumping place for rubbish and a hospital
for disabled drays, but Sir Barnacle sat
down on it, and Dry Rot prevails. A cor
poration of merchants proposed to erect a
handsome edifice on a spot sacred as a roost
ing place to a gang of negro loafers, but
Sir Barnacle waved his injunction and
that which would have been an
ornament to the city is no
more than a hole in the ground. The
county authorities proposed to erect a hand
sonio jail in a quarter notoriously the abode
of vice. Sir Barnacle wailed and gnashed
his teeth, but that one time he got left.
The United States government now pro
pose to give us a handsome public building,
and this one .won’t have it unless they buy
his old rookery at a fabulous price—that
one don’t want it unless it shall be placed
within so many feet and inches of his par
ticular place of business—Barnacle won’t
have it anyway because his grandfather
did not! That is just the trouble with the
Barnacle family—two much ancestor. For
that man who honors and emulates the
deeds of his ancestors one can have respect,
but for him who, sitting idly on his father’s
ducats, shaking the dry bones of the past in
the face of the live present, calls for honors
to himself, because bis progenitor founded
a city or won a battle, one can feel only
contempt. Atlanta and Birmingham and
Anniston and Decatur are thriving as the
green bay tree, because they live in the
present and for the future, but we of Sa
vannah count our glory in the dead past,
and Lord Decimus Tite Barnacle and Sir
Tudor Silkstocking are hung about our
necks like a deadly incubus.

Fob Sweet Charity’s Sake. —Rural Parson—
I was very glad to see you at church last Sun
day, Farmer Acorn.
Farmer Acorn- You preached a powerful ser
mon, parson, and it had a good effect on me.
"Well, it was the first of a series of sermons
on charity; ‘The Stranger Within Thy Gates.' ”
"Well, parson, I’ve been turning tramps away
for a good while, but after I heard that sermon
I made up my mind to do different, and that
night when a tramp asked for a place in the
bam I gave him a bed in my house.”
“I feel greatly encouraged, Farmer Acorn.”
“Well, 1 don’t. The next morning I discov
ered that the stranger within my gates had de
camped with everything he could lay his hands
on." — Omaha World.
An exchange speaks of “the hustle of an ar
riving steamship." So long as marine usage
continues to designate ships by the feminine
gender something of this sort must be expected.

Cable Street Cars.
There was a rumor afloat a few days ago
that this new street railway, which is to go
to the Central railroad wharf and through
the city, was to be run by cable, like the Chi
cago street railway. This would probably
cost more money in the start, but would
prove more profitable in the long run, as so
many more trips could be made in a day,
and parties having important business to at
tend to at the Central railroad wharf, could
get there in a very little time. Just the
same at Appel & Schaul’s, the One Price
Clothiers; it takes you no time to get an
outfit at their establishment, as every arti
cle is marked in plain figures with the lowest
price to all on same, thus saving au hour or
two argument on the price, etc.
Their plan of doing business is sufficient
for those that are not judges of goods to buy
with confidence, knowing their friends do
not buy the same goods for less money, and
those that are judges are invited to call and
inspect prices to convince themselves. Their
fall and winter stock has been received, and
are ready for inspection—lG3 Congress
street, opposite the market.
A Big Crop of Weddings.
Reliable rumor predicts a greater than usual
number of weddings during the fall and winter
season, an indication of prosperity surely. We
are in proper trim for just such occasions, and
would ask personal inspection of the multitudi
nous articles, ornamental and decorative, with
which our storerooms are crowded. We point
with pleasure to our immense array of Solid
Silver and Plated Ware suitable for wedding
presents, rare Vases, elegant Clocks, handsome
Statuary, and bric-a-brac generally. Our line
of bronze ornaments is brilliant in itself, and
throughout may he found a thousand valuable
novelties suitable and appropriate as souvenirs
and keepsakes. In Diamonds. Jewelry and
Watches, it is impossible in limited space to
speak intelligibly. Suffice it to say that not
even the famous "Tiffany's” can outrival us m
beauty and careful selection of ourstoefe. Prices
have been made to suit the times, and we offer
our representative stock on its merits, and stake
our reputation on the result. Our engraving
department is carefully conducted, and all work
in Ibis lino is artistically executed. We are
always pleased to show visitors through our
stock, even though they may not be ready to
buy. as we feel that our establishment is one of
the “sights" of the city, and it is always "exhi
bition day” to the public. Respectfully,
