AN INCENDIARY'S TORCH.
IT IS APPLIED TO J. A. G. CARSON’S
The Costly Mansion Completely Gutt ed
—A Small Flame Quickly Spreads
Until it Envelops the Whole House
No Reason Given for the Burning—
The Fire Department’s Good Work.
The newly built residence of Mr. J. A. Cl.
Carson took tire a few minutes before mid
night last night and was almost totally
destroyed. It was situated on Bolton street,
between Drayton and Aberoorn, and occu
pied the second lot west of Aberoorn. It
was an elegant residence and was almost
ready for occupation. There seems
but little doubt that incendiaries
caused the burning, but what their
motive was is no more known than who
they are. The fire was discovered li v a ser
vant in the family of Mr. Charles Haines.
Mr. Haines crossed the yard of the new
mansion and went into the rear of his own
lot to leave an order with his cook. Ho
passed then into the house, but, before he
shut the door the cook called to him and
told him that there was a tire. He ran into
the lane and saw a blaze on the piazza that
separated the kitchen of Mr. Carson’s resi
dence from the main part of the house.
BURST INTO KI,AMICS.
Only a moment before he had passed
there, but there was no sign of any fire. It
had sni ung up in a very few seconds, but
Mr. Haines did not wait to inquire the
origin. He ran to McMahon’s grocery, on
New Houston street, for the key to the fire
alarm box. He called Mr. McMahon out,
and they secured the key and started for the
imx, but Mounted Officer McQuade turned
in the alarm just before they got there.
They hurried back to the lire, and when
they arrived they found that the flames had
eaten their way through the door and were
Mr. Tom Davis, operator of the Savan
nah, Florida and Western, lives next door,
and he whssh wakened and advisod to move
out what furniture ho couid. He replied
that he thought there was no danger to his
house, but all who were in it dressed and
sought a place of safety.
THE FIREMEN AT WORK.
The Fire Department, which arrived with
all promptness, came up at that time and
began the work of subduing the flames.
Protection Hose Company was the first on
the spot and a line of hose was run to the
rear of the house and a stream turned on
the piazza where the flames had first been
seen, but they had made their way inside
and seemed to have found ready material
upon which to feed for they spread with re
In but a few minutes the house was a
blaze from cellar to roof, and soon the lat
ter fell and the flames levied high in the
air, illuminating the whole neighborhood
and making the park extension as bright as
day. Crowds of people assembled in spite
of the lateness of the hour, and all
■watched with regret the rapid
destruction of the handsome property.
ADJOINING HOUSES IN DANGER
They kept at a safe distance, for the fire
burned fiercely, and the heat was so intense
that the neighbors used their garden hose to
keep their walls from catching tiro, though
the flames were not near them. The heat
set fire to Mr. Davis’ house, but did not do
The fireman, under Assistant Chief
George Mouro, worked faithfully and with
great success. Although the odds were great
ly against them they succeeded in gettingthe
fire under control at last, and m spite of the
fact that, at one time the whole interior was
like a roaring furnace, they saved the walls
which stiil stand though they are valueless.
In the course of three quartrrs of an hour
the lire had been put, out and only a few
rod spots remained on the black framework
that was left, and when these hail one by
one been washed out, the crowd and the de
A 812,000 LOSS.
Mr. Cai’son, who is with J. P. Williams &
Cos., liegan his house last spring and had
spent aliout $12,000 in its erection. It was
fitted up with all the modern appliances for
comfort and convenience Electric bolls,
burglar alarms and evei-ything else'that
could make it a perfect residence, was put
into it and it was one of the most
beautiful houses in that part of
the city I was covered with a
builder’s risk but for what amount is un
known. The house was in t hat section of
the city where so many incendiary fires
have occurred There is seemingly no ex
planation of the action of the fiends who
apparently commit those deeds only for the
love of them, for in ail the tiros tliat have
occurred there has been no reason for the
application of the brand, and nothing to
prompt any one to such a crime. No trace
of the incendiaries has been obtained.

AN OLD PRIVATEERSMAN.
Capt. W. Wallace Smith Gone to His
Capt. Walter W. Smith, an old citizen of
SavAnnah, died yesterday at tho Savannah
Hospital. The deceased was born in Savan
nail, August 29, 1824, and at an early age
became an apprentice in tho pilot service.
At the breaking out of the war he shipped
aboard the Confederate privateer Jefferson
Davis and served until July 6, 1861. On
that day the Jefferson Davis captured off
Montauk the schooner Enchantress, bound
from Boston to St. Jago. Capt. Smith
was put aboard as prize-master, and
a few days after was recaptured and
taken to Philadelphia, where, on < let. 25,
he was convicted in the United States Dis
trict Court upon an indictment for piracy
and sent to Fort Lafayette under sentence
of death, and his treatment was tho subject
of controversy between the two govern
At the expiration of two years ho was ex
changed for Col. Cochran, a United States
officer who was imprisoned at Fort Sumter.
During his confinement in prison Capt.
Smith contracted rheumatism, and he had
been a sufferer from the disease ever since.
A few weeks ago it took a dangerous form,
that of inflammatory rheumatism, and re
sulted in his deaih.
Tin deceased leaves a daughter, sister,
brother and large family connections to
mourn his death. His funeral will take
place this morning at, 9:80 o’clock from the
Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

THE NAVAL STORES MARKET.
A Boom on and Spirits and Rosins on
a Big Rise.
The naval stores market is on a sort of
boom. Spirits turpentine was firm yester
day and has advanced lVjc. the past week.
This advance is looked upon by operators as
a legitmate one. The stock at London this
year compared with last is 11,900 casks
short, and the price at the present time is
9d. lower |>er hundred weight, while the
stock is smaller than has been known
for several years, showing that
notwithstanding the increased production
the product has gone rapidly into consump
tion. In rosins there has been quite au in
crease in value. “Strained” to “good
strained” advanced last week from 10c. to
12v,c., while “pales” are 20c. to 40c. higher,
with the medium grades 10c. to 20c. The
advance is believed by some operators to lie
speculative, while others say that it is war
ranted by the movement and stocks on
hand. There are not many vessels offer
ing, still freights have gone down 3d.
CAUGHT ON AN ANCHOR CHAIN.
The Body of a Colored Man Hauled
Up by the Steamer Glen Tanar.
The body of the negro Horace Jenkens,
who was drowned on Monday, from a
lighter alongside the British steamship Glen
Tanar, at the Central Press, was found yes
terday near where the drown
ing occurred. Thedrowned man’s clothing
caught on tho steamer’s anchor chain
and kept the body from being carried out
by the tide. It became dislodged, and
floated to the surface yesterday. Acting
Coroner Molina was notified of its recov
er}’, and he investigated the circumstances
of the drowning, winch were the same as
already stated in the Morning News. It
was evident that the drowning was acci
dental, and the Acting Coroner gave a
burial certificate without the formality of
an inquest. The body was turned over to
tlie friends of the drowned man, and it was
buried yesterday afternoon.
FRE GHT ROOM ALL TAKEN.
Cotton Exporters Complaining of a
Lack of Shipping.
There was a slight falling off in cotton
receipts at Savannah last week, but the
shipping movement is fairly large, and
prices have held steady. The buying for
the past two weeks was contined to only a
few of the heaviest operators. Exporters
are complaining of a great, scarcity of
freight room, and it is said that all the room
is engaged up to Nov. 10. There are very
few steam vessels bound here. This has
had the effect of keeping a number of buy
ers out of the market.

THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30. 1887.
IN FAVOR OF THE CREW.
THE NAVAL COURT’S DECISION ON
THE WET COTTON CASE.
The Resolute’s Cargo Declared Unfit
for Shipment, but may be Taken
Over by a Volunteer Crew -Another
Litigation on Hand.
The Naval Court rendered itsdecision yes
terday in tho case of the crew vs. the Master
of the steamship Resolute. Before reading
the decision, Vice Consul Robertson took
occasion to defend himself against rumors
that have been circulating. He said, “I
want to say something about those street
rumors. Many people seem to think that
the decision was reached liefore, or soon af
ter the court convened. The court met anil
heard the evidence and made every endeav
or to take it as it ought to be taken.”
IN FAVOR OF THE CREW.
He then wont on to read the decision,
which declared that the cargo was unfit for
shipment under hatches, but that tho court
would not undertake to declare that the
cargo was an unfit one for a volunteer
crew to take over.
Tiie decision was not a surprise, though
there doubtless was nothing in the rumors
which the Vice Consul spoke of. Nearly
every one expected from the flint tliat the
decision woula lie in favor of the crew. The
reference to a volunteer crew at. first gave
rise to the impression that the crew of the
Resolute could be discharged if volunteers
could lie found, hut that is not the case.
The crew •mist refuse to go or be legally
discharged for some other cause liefore a
volunteer erew can he shipped. As long as
the crew sticks to the ship the cargo cannot
THE CREW STAND FIRM.
(’apt.. Reavely called the crew to one side
and tried to persuade them to consent to go,
but they were firm in their refusal. They
said they were fighting not only for'them
selves, but for their class; that this was a
pioneer case, and they meant to carry it
through. The Captain, however, said that
he intended to carry the cargo to Liverpool.
The court might have been influenced to
some extent by the effect of the odors
from the cotton upon themselves. They
visited the vessel and cargo on Friday and
found a rather bad odor emanating from
some of the bales. Subsequent to their
visit they were all more or less sick. Some
attributed it to the effluvia from the wet
cotton and others to different causos, but
the}’ were all sick.
This does not conclude the litigation, for
the crew of the have made a protest,
and they say ]>oStivelv that they will not
go to sea if their wet cotton is reshipped.

"PROF." DAHLBERO GOES FREE.
The Swedish Musician Tires of Prison
After forty-eight hours in jail “Prof.”
Dnhlberg is again breathing free air. He
was turned loose yesterday and told to get
out of town without losing any time. He
did not take kindly to prison fare, and when
he was brought, out of his cell the first, thing
he did was to lodge a complaint with the
jailer that, the jail cuisine was not, up to the
standard of first-class houses to wiiicb he
has lieeu accustomed.
“You deceive me very bail,” he said to
Constable Basch when the officer led him
into the jail office.
“How’s that;” he was asked.
“You tell me dat 1 get nice turkey and
codfish balls and coffee, and when I order
supper I get nothing but soup. Oh, dey
dreated me very bad, and when I send for
der doctor I don get any.”
He hxifeed rather the worse for his con
finement, and it was not hard to see tliat
jail life did not agree with him. After lis
toning to his talk for awhile, an officer
got up and told Dahlberg to come on down
“I cannot valk” he replied. “I wait for
you here while you go anil get some carriage.
I nefer can valk alone. I couldn’t do it.”
“Very well, officer. Hand mo his dis
charge and I’ll lock him up,” said tho
“I’ll go. I’ll go. I’m better now,” and
the ‘ ‘ Professor” stepped off with so much
alacritv that the officer thought he was go
ing without him. The two came down
to Justice Naughtin’s office and there an
other scene took place The “Professor’s ’
burden was that he could not give his con
cert. “I haf no money,” he said. “Votam
I to dol”
“Lock him up again,” said an officer.
“Vat is dot; go to jail. Oh, I nefer could.
Vat vill my frens think of der Professor
now. Oh, don do it,” and he dropped on
his knees and begged not. to be taken back
to jail. Finally he was told to go, and he
shot into the street as if a whole army was
after him. That was the last seen of

Weather or Not.
“Oh, will this weather ever let up?
Will winter come to us again?"
We are having weather. This little ad
vertisement may see various changes of
weather before we have a chance to write
another. The weather may change, but our
desires and intention to stand by the buyers
of clothing are as unchangeable and fixed
as the public building site or the price of
gas. Wo have no time, however, to ser
monize. We must move our stock —not a
hard task, though, for it moves itseif. It
can’t stay with us. Its superiority, its ele
gance and attractiveness, backed by the
right prices, pushes it right out. Old cus
tomers and new faces enliven the season.
Cause apparent: Treat a man or boy right,
and he relies on you. We ransacked the
markets for the latest materials in vogue,
and had our suits and garments made up by
skilled workmen. Everything thorough and
solid. Overcoats in popular styles and ma
terials for dress and business. Our Gents’
Business and Dress Suits will bear out our
every encomium. The boys are not over
looked. Parents can send their 1 >oys to us
and rely on getting the attention and prices
that personal visits would secure. Cold
weather is at hand, and early comers get
first selection, though we aim to keep our
stock up at all seasons. Full assortment of
Furnishings, Hats, Neckwear, etc.

Thos. D. Crump’s Views on Fairness.
A Journal reporter called on Mr. Thos.
D. Crump and said, “I understand that you
drew a prize in the Louisiana State Lottery
drawing of the 9th ult. ?” “I did.” “What
was your ticket?” “39,146.” “Did it repre
sent the whole, or a part of the prize?” “A
part —one tenth of the second capital.”
“What amount?” “$5,000.” “Did you re
ceive the full amount the ticket repre
sented?” “I received the full amount eight
days after the ticket had drawn.” “How
did you collect the money?” “Our Jones
burg (Mo.) Bank collected it through the
laicTade Bank of St. Louis, and paid it to
tome.” I consider that the business of the
Louisiana State Lottery is conducted fairly,
without partiality or la,vor.”—Jonesburg
(Mo.) Journal, Sept. 8.

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 lie 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. J ust 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 an 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—l 63 Congress

A Big Crop of Weddings
Reliable rumor predicts a greater than usual
number of weddings din ing 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 be 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 in
beauty and careful selection of our stock. 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 tins line 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,
