SAVANNAH TO HAVE THE UNITED
COUNCIL OF THE SOUTH.
Delegates from Ten States to Meet in
This City on Thanksgiving Day
Representatives of 40,000 Lutheran
Communicants to be in Session-
Preparing to Receive the Delegates -
Distinguished Visitors Who Will Be
The United Synod of the P'vangelioal
Lutheran Church in the South will meet in
this city on Thanksgiving day, Nov. 24, and
will be in session one week. The United
Synod represents upward of 40,000 comm
unicants of the Lutheran Church. It is com
posed of the Synods of Virginia, Southwest
Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South
Carolina, Georgia and Mississippi, and the
Holsten Synod. Each synod is entitled to
a clerical and lay delegate for every 1,000
or part of 1,000 communicants.
It is expected that over 100 delegates, and
visitors from corresponding bodies in the
North and West will be in attendance at
the synod, which is the representative body
of the Southern Lutheran church.
TO COMMENCE THANKSGIVING MORNING.
The synod will convene on the morning
of Thanksgiving day at 11 o’clock in the
Lutheran church, when the synodic
al sermon will be preached by the
Vice President of the synod, Rev.
Prof. F. AY. E. Pesebau, of Wilmington,
N. C. The programme of the synod lias
not been completed. There will be two
sessions daily, and possibly three, though
the evenings will be chiefly devoted to public
services and addresses by prominent
members of the synod and visiting members
of other synods. The President of the
synod, Rev 'Dr. Gilbert, who was formerly
pastor of the church in this city, but recent
ly at Winchester, Va.. having removed
to Harrisburg, Pa., his duties will devolve
upon the Vice President, Dr. Peschau. The
sessions of the United Synod are biennial.
The last session was held in Roanoke city,
Va, two years ago.
AN IMPORTANT SESSION.
The coming synod will be one of great
importance, and will be one of the largest
ever held. Among the distinguished visi
tors will be Rev. Dr. B. M. Schmucker,
of Pottstown, Pa., representing the Gen
eral Council of the North, and Rev.
G. U. Wenner, of New York, representing
the General Synod of the North. They,
with Rev. Dr. Home, of Charleston, repre
senting the synod of the South, constitute a
committee which is preparing a uniform
book of worship for the English speaking
Lutheran church in this country. Dr. ,J. D.
Dreher, President of the Roanoke College
(Virginia), and one of the most widely
known members of the church in this coun
try, will also be present.
The Savannah church is already at work
preparing for the reception and entertain
ment of the delegates and visitors who will
lie here. The successful entertainment of
so large a number of people is not an easy
task. The Committee on .Homes consists of
Messrs. George N. Nichols, J. F. LaFar,
Jacob Paulsen, W, B. Hpann and C. Y.
Richardson, and they will be glad to re
ceive the names of any who are willingly
disposed to aid in entertaining the delegate-.

MEN WHO MOVE LIVELY.
New Ycrkers Watch Savannah Fire
men Respond to an Alarm.
A party of New Yorkers stopping at the
Marshall House visited the fire department
headquarters yesterday and were shown its
workings liv Chief Fernandez. They were
greatly surprised at the appearance of the
department and the promptness with which
the men put themselves in readiness for ser
While the visitors were inspecting theap
lmratus Chief Fernandez went up to the
battery room, and turned in the test alarm,
which is done every afternoon, except on
•Sundays. Yesterday was "exercise day,”
and the men responded to the alarm. From
the first strike of the gong until the hose
cart and Engine No. 8 had left the build
ing was five seconds. This is as quick as
any department, of the size of theHavannah
department, in the country' can make.
The men lose no time ill responding to
Alarms. The horses are well t rained and
the apparatus is iu perfect order. The de
lays in reaching fires. Chief Fernandez says,
are due to the heavy streets, the high and
poorly constructed crossings, and the small
number of fire alarm stations. The depart
ment's apparatus is not sufficient to protect
so large a territory with the alarm boxes so
widely separated. Frequently two or three
buildings are destroyed before an alarm is
i i.e extension of the city’s water mains,
the placing of additional hydrants with dis
charge nozzles the full size of the engine
snetions and the employment of more per
manent men for the department, Chief Fer
nandez says, will increase the efficiency of
the fire service, and he is in hopes that
these matters will be looked after during
the coming year.
The Chief invites the public to visit the
engine houses and see the workings of the
AT THE THEATRE.
J. B. Polk in “The Jerseyman” the
Week’s Principal Att’action.
The week’s principal attraction at the
Theatre will be J. B. Polk in “The Jersey
man,” on Wednesday and Thursday
nights. Mr. Polk is always popular
with Savannah audiences. His “Mixed
Pickles” last season made a great
hit here. In “The Jerseyman” Mr.
Polk is at his best. His “Gilderoy Punk" is
one of his best characters. The fun of the
play centres in Mr. Polk’s impersonation,
arid he is on the stage most of the time.
His humor is of the quiet sort that affords
unflagging amusement. His audiences sel
dom tire of “Gilderoy Punk" and his
“busted” schemes. From the moment the
curtain rises until it falls there is always
plenty of applause. The story of pretty
"Dot,” who turns out to lie an heiress with
innumerable suitors, affords enough interest
to make a good play even without the oddi
ties and eccentricities of the leading char
acter. The reserved seat sale will open on
Another Match in a Cotton Bale.
Another clew has been obtained which
may ultimately lead to a solution of the
mystery surrounding the frequent cotton
fire®. Some gentlemen who were examining
the cotton from the British steamer Sylvia,
picked a parlor match from a bale which
bad been taken out of the vessel and was
being loaded upon a lighter for reshipment.
The cotton was water soaked, and the match
was not ignitible, but the sulphur
was still on it, and showed that it had never
been lighted. How it got into the cotton is
J* much a mystery as the origin of the fires
baa been. It may have been dropped into
the vessel’s hold, but the place where it was
found rather indicated that it was placed
there for a purpose.
THROUGH THE CITY.
Items Gathered Here and There by the
There were seven arrests for disorderly
conduct, one for larceny and one for smok
ing on River street, near n cotton warehouse
Mr. J. P. Germaine is rebuilding his resi
dence at Bull and Perry streets, and when
the work is complete will have one of the
tinest houses in that part of the city.
Dr. Bacon, of the Independent Presby
terian church, will begin to-night a series of
Sunday evening sermons on “Prayer, Provi
dence and Miracle,’’ which he will continue
through the month. In the course of the
services he will take up the “Faith Cure.”
Mrs. ffm. Gnann, who was anested at
the instigation of her husband on Friday
night on the charge of arson, was given a
private hearing by Mayor Lester yesterday
morning. She said that the fire was an ac
cident, and as no one appeared to prosecute
her sho was dismissed.
A movement is on foot among the various
social clubs in the city to organize the Sa
vannah Orchestral Asssociation, for the
pm-pose of organizing and maintains a first
class orchestra. A stock company is being
organized for that purpose, and nearly all
of the money required mis been subscribed.
The organization will lie completed this
week. First -class musicians will be en
gaged from the North, and the movers in
the enterprise say that by Dec. 1 the or
chestra will be here and ready for engage
ments. A first-class orchestra is something
that Savannah needs very much.
SEVEN CUTS ON HIS HEAD.
Policeman T. S. Morgan's Desperate
Encounter with an Old Fort Negro.
Policeman Thomas Morgan had an en
counter with a negro last night which he
will long remember. There was a row at
the corner of Price and Congress streets and
Policeman Morgan went up there to quiet
the belligerents. A negro man and woman
were at it hot and heavy, and Morgan
caught one of them in each hand and
started with them for the barracks. When
they got to Congress street the man tripped
him and he fell.
The woman got away, but the officer held
on to the man, while he got on his feet
again. He marched along to State street,
and just as he reached the corner the negro
turned upon him. Morgan struck at the
fellow with his club, but the negro grabbed
the club and liegan beating the policeman
over the head Morgan held on and tried to
get out his pistol, but before he could do so the
negro broke away and ran, Morgan after
The fellow made his escape, and Morgan
went to the barracks. When he went into
the office he could hardly be recognized.
His head, face and beard were covered with
blood, and his wounds were bleeding pro
fusely. Dr. Dunn was sent for, and when
he examined the officer’s head he found
seven long gashes, that were cut through to
the skull. None of them are serious, how
ever, and when they were bandaged Mor
gan went to bed. He complained of a
MERCURY TAK ;S A TUMBLE.
A Fall of 13 Degrees Yesterday and
Last Night—To-day’s Weather.
There was a big drop in mercury last
night. The signal service reports show that
there was a fall of 13’ from yesterday’s
maximum temperature. The lowest point
recorded up to 10 o’clock last night
was 51’. The mean temperature
for the day was 4° below the aver
age for the past fifteen years, and the
indications at midnight were that to-day
it will be lower still. There is a cold wave
coming over the entire South. The JO
o'clock signal service reports were incom
plete, but enough were received to show
that Savannah is not the only
point touched. Augusta reported
40 , Charleston 54’, and even Jackson
ville reported 2’ lower than Savannah.
Tiie cold extends along the entire coast.
Smithville, N. reported 40" last night
and Hatteras 4.V. No reports were received
from the New England or Middle Atlantic
States or from beyond the Ohio valley. The
indications from Washington at midnight
were: Fair weather, light variable winds,
generally from east to south, warmer, ex
cept in the extreme southern portion, and
BRYAN COUNTY’S COURT.
A Small Criminal Docket—The Elec
The Bryan County Court will be opened
for the November term to-morrow morning.
This court usually finishes its business in
one day, but it is possible that this term may
coutiuue three or four days. There are not
many criminal cases to be tried, but Mr.
Robert Smith, who investigated the alleged
election frauds, says that he has found
thirty illegal votes. If the grand jury in
dicts them the court will have more work
on its hands than it is customary to find
there. Solicitor General dußignon will go
up to-night. Sheriff J. D. Morgan came
down yesterday and took up Henry Edward
George, who was committed to" jail last
month on a charge of burglary, and Horace
Hicks, who was committed July 17 for
assault and battery. Quite a number of the
members of the Savanuah bar will go up to
attend the session.
BACK FROM CHARLESTON.
The Forest City Gun Club Wins Plenty
of Prizes From the Carolinians.
The Forest City Gun Club retnrned from
Charleston last night. The members of the
Club syx-ak in very high terms of their
treatment while in Charleston, and their
shooting was somewhat of a surprise to the
clubs which entered the gala week contests.
The Forest Citys took the club prizes and
also a majority of the individual prizes.
Out of the £2ll offered in prizes, the Forest
Citys captured £l2O, leaving only $75 to lie

COTTON’S LIVELY JUMP.
Effect of the Cotton World’s Estimate
of the Crop-Advance All Around.
The cotton market was strong yesterday.
Spots advanced all round. There was
a heavy demand on the advance, and over
4,000 bales were sold. Futures iu New York
were strong and went up 25 points. This
was caused by a crop estimate by the Cotton
World for between 5,000,000 aiid 0,000,000
bales. This estimate was worked for nil it
was worth by tho bull side of the market.
There is a better demand on the Savannah
market for spot cotton, there being more
freight room offering.

Mr. James C. Lee, a brother of Sergt. S.
C. Lee, of the Savannah police, died at his

that there is a project on foot to give AVat
kiusville two railroads. The new road is to
run from McDonough to Conyers, from
Conyers to Walnut Grove, Monroe, High

been secured and a preliminary survey will
be made in a short time.
The Railway Aye says thaat during the
last few months the work of railway build
ing has been going on in the United States
at a rate never betore equaled. The great
prosperity of the country and the tendency
to migrate into new ' and undeveloped
regions have encouraged the great railway
companies to push forward an enormous
amount of new mileage in order to antici
pate or keep up with a similar enterprise
on the part of their competitors.
From Jan. 1 to Nov. 1, 274 roads
have laid a total of 9,408 miles of
track. More track has lieen laid so far this
year than iu the year 1880, and exceeds the
record of all other years in the history of
this or any other country. “The greatest
activity has been exhibited in a broad belt
west of the Missouri river, stretching from
Dakota and Montana south to the Gulf.
Kansas continues, as last year, far in the
load, showing ulready an addition of at least
1,080 miles since the year began. Nebraska
follows next with a report of 807 miles, Tex
as with 885 miles, Colorado with 718 miles,
and Dakota with 098 miles.” These four
States and one Territory already having
added 4,798 miles of new- railway, or more
than one-half of the total thus far reported
for the entire country.

i THE NAVAL COURT’S DECISION AF
FIRMED IN ENGLAND.
The Board of Trade Cables its Con
firmation of the Court’s Proceedings
and Final Judgment -NewjQuestions
Arlisng Which May Have to Be Set
tled In Another Court.
The Board of Trade of England has wired
its official continuation of the proceedings
of the Naval Court in the case of the crew
vs. the captain of the steamship Resolute.
This confirmation has raised a question of
law that may not be settled outside of a
court. The decision of the Naval Court
was that the Resolute’s cargo was not a tit
and proper one to be carried under hatches,
and that the crew could not ’e compelled to
go to sea with it: but the court would not
undertake to say that the cargo was unfit
to be tak®n by any crew which, knowing
all tho facts, might volunteer to go.
The question of taking a volunteer crew
and carrying the cotton forward was con
sidered, and the only impediment to such a
course was the present crew, which would
have to be legally disposed of. That seemed
easy, however, wheu it was found that ac
cording to English law a crew could b§ dis
charged in a foreign port upon payment of
three months’ wages m advance. This be
ing the case the owners sent Capt Reavely
and order to reload his cargo, but now the
question is raised as to the effect of the con
firmation by tho Board of Trade.
By some it is held that, now the crew can
not lie discharged and if the sailors stick to
the ship the cargo will hav e to be abandoned.
Ontheotherhand.it is said that the con
fii niation in no wise aff cts the case, except
that it is an approval of tho action of the
A’ice Consul, and that the power of the
Captain to discharge his men is
as it was before the power given by the
Ensrlish law to take anew crew, provided
he lands the old one back in the port from
whence they sailed.
It is not improbable that the owner of the
vessel may instruct the captain how to act,
and that if there is any question to be de
cided it will be decided when the vessel re
turns to England.

The Mexican Mission.
Mexico Letter to Manchester Uuion.
In this connection it may be mentioned
that a very grave difficulty is apprehended
in the appointment of a successor to the
late Thomas C’ourtland Manning as the
United States Minister to Mexico.
it soeins that President Cleveland is bound
by a promise to Mr. Thomas B. Connery,
Secretary of the American legation in the
City of Mexico, to raise him (Connerv) to
the position of Minister, in the event of Mr.
Manning’s promised resignation. Connery
is one of the most earnest Catholics, carry
ing his religious devotion so far that it is
said ho refused to speak to his brother for
weeks on account of some difference of
opinion which arose between them in dis
cussing the tenets of their faith. What
diplomatic complications may eusue in the
event of such a man being made the repre
sentative of American interests here, none
can foresee. The church party being at
present actively engaged in fermenting a
strong sentiment against President Diaz, it
is doubtful if his administration would wel
come very cordially a Minister whose reli
gious bias is so strongly on the side of the
opposition. Now that the Liberal party
have determined that Diaz shall ho his own
successor, though the constitution must be
changed to allow it, and the church faotiou,
as well as a great number of anti-Catholics,
are equally determined that he shall not be
re-elected, a complication is presented by
no means encouraging to a diplomat who is
not committed to one side or the other, as is
“Full Many a Gem

caves of ocean bear,” but not one that glis
tens more brightly than teeth beautified and

The human arm plays a very important
part in the drama of life. A lady who can
boast of a pretty arm is not apt to conceal
the fact to any great extent. Man’s natural
weapon of defense and offense, is his strong
right arm. When an auctioneer’s arm
comes down it means “sold,” in more ways
than one. The large Golden Arm that in
vites the passer-by to step in and examine
our great variety of Gents .Youths’ and Boys'*

strokes of success achieved by us iu catering

Rheumatism Overthrown by the Use of
Prickly Ash, Poke Root and Potassium.
I suffered fifteen years with Rheuma

so-called specifics that I could hear of.
One of them I paid 38 per bottle for, and
took nine bottles and received no bene
fit from any of them. My grandson,
who runs on the B. and W. railroad
finally got a bottle of P. P. P. (Prickly
Ash. Poke Root and Potassium), while
in AVaycross, and induced me to take it.
The first bottle showed its wonderful
effects, and after continuing the use of
it for a short time the Rheumatism dis

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. J ust the
same at Appel & Seiiaul’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 them 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—lf>3 Congress

GRAND IN THE AVHITE HOUSE.—It. U gener
ally conceded that Presiuent Arthur is one of
the most cultured and accomplished gentlemen
who have occupied the executive chair. But
few of our readers, outside of metropolitan clp
cics are aware that he enumerates among hit
tr.ai i v accomplishments that of music. President
Arthur is not only an excellent amateur, but
considerable of a music connoisseur. Here
eently gave the old and reliable bouse of Knabs
& Cos. uu order for a Concert Grand for tbs
Presidential Mansion, at Washington. The in
strument is one of the most superb Grands pro
duced by Messrs. Knabe. It is richly carved,
and is an exceptional instrument in beautiful
equality of tone, power, exquisite touch, re
sponsive action and artistic workmanship. IS
was placed in the White "louse last week. The
President is not alone in his preference for the
Knabe Grand, as it graces the parlors of Hon.
•Tame'; G. Blaine and many other statesmen a'
Messrs. Wm. Knabe & Cos.:
Dear Sirs: The Upright Piano which you so
kiudly presented me commands my admiration.
For beauty of tone, touch and action, I have not
sun its t onal, and it gives me great pleasure to
render this justice to the instrument of your
manufacture. Believe me, very truly yours,
