THE SAVANNAH CASE.
The decision in the case of Hammond,
Hull & Cos. vs. Wilcher, is of considerable
importance in Savannah. The court ruled
that, the Commissioner of Agricul
ture has no power to authorize
extra territorial insjiection or to dispense
with interterritorial inspection. Following
is the substance of the decision, which was
announced by Chief Just ee Bleckley:
Tne official duty of inspecting fertilizers
provided for by the law's of this State can
not be performed beyond the limits of the
State. The Commissioner of Agriculture
has no power to authorize extra
territorial inspection or to dis
pense with interterritorial inspection.
Without the latter any salo of commercial
fertilizers made within the State is unlawful
and a contract for price will not be en
forced. The suit in the Justice’s Court was
by the payers against the maker upon a
note dated May 9, 1885, given for the Di'i'*e
of a commercial fertilizer known as the
Farmer’s Ammoniated and Dissolved bone.
The note contained numerous admis
sions and waivers, the sum
of which was that the
debt was absolute and open to no defense.
The defense was made, however, involving
the question whether the fertilizer had lieen
duly inspected so as to be legally sold in the
State. Tiie evidence was conflicting as to
whether tiie sacks were branded and tagged
but as to the place of inspection there was
no conflict. The inspection was by one of
the inspectors of the State but
was made in South Carolina at the
plaintiff's factory, and was the article in
bulk before it was put in the sacks in which
it was sold. One of the rules anil regula
tions for the season of 1884-86 by the Com
missioner of Agriculture was that inspec
tions may lie made outsideof the State or in
bulk. The sale was through the plaintiff’s
agent at Warrenton, Ua., and there the note
was executed. The jury found for the de
fendant, and the plaintiffs sued out a cer
tiorai, which the Supreme Court overruled,
because the inspection was in South Caro
lina, and not in Georgia. The judgment is
HEALTH OF THE CONVICTS.
The current weekly report of the princi
pal physician of the penitentiary shows only
fifteen cases of acute sickness among 1,509
convicts. Dr. Westmoreland said to-day
* t hat he believed the splendid sanitary con
dition of the camps was largely the result
of the recent investigation by t he Governor.
Public attention was attracted this after
noon to an announcement that on,Thurs<tay
night at the artesian well two deserters
from the Salvation Army, Capt. Baker and
Nat Anderson, would publicly expose the
army in its true inwardness, and especially
show up Col. Light in bis connec
tion with the finances of the institu
tion. The public is looking for a rich
The Governor will remember those who
are in prison on Thanksgiving day and par
don a number of convicts whose cases he
ha* thoroughly investigated and found de
serving of executive clemency.
Executive warrants were issued to-day to
a number of ex-Confederates laboring under
disabilities specified in the new act. Among
them was E. B. William, of Pike county, of
the Forty-fourth Georgia regiment, who
was shot through the left wrist, right arm
and received four bullets in his right hip
and leg. He was paid SSO for his disabled
right arm and right leg.

Suicide at Rome.
Rome, Ga., Nov. 23.—J. W. Akridge, a
prominent young business man of Anniston,
Ala., was found dead in lied at the Rome
Hofei to-night. A quantity of morphine
was on the table near liis bed. He arrived
here last night and took a room, which he
kept all day. Nothing was discovered to
indicate whether his death was suicidal or
Augusta, Ga., Nov. 23.— The factory
Operatives held a largo meeting to-night in
the interest of the coming exposition. A
considerable amount of money was raised
on the spot, and committees were appointed
to canvass throughout the entire factory’
Solomon Blankensee, a prominent Jewish
citizen died to-day.
Tampa Can Give Thanks.
Tampa, Fla., Nov. 22. —There were no
new cases and no deaths to-day. Union
Thanksgiving services will be held in the
Congregational church Thursday. Seven
nurses leave for Savannah on the morning
train. The weather is warmer.
A Dwelling Burned.
Pensacola, Fla.. Nov. 22.—A dwelling
house belonging to J. A. Harrison, of Mil
ton, was destroyed bv tiro last night. The
loss is about $2,500. There was $2,000 in
surance on the property.
HIS HEART CUT OPEN.
And the Man Lived for Two Hours
El Paso, Tex., Nov. 22.—A case of }iecti
iiar interest to medical men was devel
oped here to-day. Last evening a Mexican,
named Rico, stabbed another Mexican,
named Parada. The wounded man did not at
once give signs of being fatally injured. He
stood up, and even walked, with a little as
sistance. City Physician J. A. McKinney
was called anil Paradu’s wound was exam
ined. It was found to be a cut about half
an inch long over the heart. From Purada’s
strength and his frequent efforts to got
on his feet the doctor con
cluded, without probing the wound
fully, that tiie knife has not gone in deeply’.
Parada would have stood up and walked
around again had he not been compelled to
lie still, lie was undressed and the wound
was sewed up, when he suddenly fell back
and expired, having lived nearly two hours
after lieiug stabbed. Being at a loss to ex
plain the symptons, Dr. McKinney held a
post mortem to-day, and on removing the
neart found that the knife of tho murderer,
evidently a sti. itto. had penetrated to the
left ventricle C ti-> heart, making a gash
about a quarter of an inch wide. Accord
ing to all medical theories, tiie man should
not have lived over ten minutes, if that long.
“The only explanation of the phenomenon
which I can see,” said Dr. McKinney, “is
that the blood clotted at once and filled up
the small hole made by the stilleto. As far
1 know the case is unprecedented.”
THE NEXT HOUSE.
When the Caucus to Provide for Its Or
ganization Will be Held.
Washington, D. C., Nov. 22.—The cau
cus of the Democratic members of the
House to select the official corps will be held
according to custom on the Saturday even
ing preceding the assembling of Congress.
As it is not known definitely how many
members will enter the caucus it is imposs
ible to state until it is held how many votes
will be required to determine the ticket.
There are 168 regular Democrats on the
roll of the new House and four In
dependents with Democratic inclinations,
so that the maxium number who may lie
present varies from 168 to 172. It
would take, therefore, somewhere from 85
to 87 votes to elect in the caucus, assuming
all the members elected to l>e present. It
is altogether improbable, however, that
there will be a full attendance at the caucus,
as it will probably require a smaller number
than the minimum named to make a selec
tion. There is every indication still that
there will be no change in the official corps
of the House unless it lie in the position of
Doorkeeper. The only observable fight now
is over that office, for which quite
a number of candidates are in
the field. The list, as it now stands, consists
of Mr. Donelson of Tennessee (the in
cumbent), Mr. Nichols of Texas. Mr.
Walker of Minnesota, Mr. Hurt of Mississ
sippi, Mr. Barnett of New York, and Mr.
Reeder of Pennsylvia. Mr. Reeder was a
candidate for Doorkeeper of the last House,
but got no votes. His candidacy now is not
considered formidable. Mr. Walker has the
support of the Democrats from Minnesota.
Mr. Nichols lias only part of the Texas dele
gation. The indications are that the fight
will narrow down to Donelson and Hurt.

ON RAIL AND CROSSTIE.
Local and General Gossip In Railway
The Columbus Enquirer-Sun says that
tho work on the Columbus and Western
road is progressing in good sliai>e. Alter
leaving Goodwater, five miles of the track
is in first-class order, and eleven miles—the
balance of the distance to Sylaeauga—
nearly ready to be received from the con
tractor. Trains would have been running
into Sylaeauga some time ago, but have
been detained by a heavy cut, which was
finished to grade this week. Tho track will
be surfaced and trains ready to run into
Sylaeauga in a few days, connecting
with tho A. and A. railroad to Annis
ton. Four miles of track has lieen laid beyond
Sylaeauga. The grading to Childersberg
has been finished, and but for the trestling
tho track could be laid to Childersburg.
The track will roach that point in four
weeks, and then wo will connect with the
East Tennessee, Virginia anil Georgia rail
road. The grading has all been finished
from Childerslxirg to the tunnels, a distance
of eighteen miles. One mile of track from
Childersberg to the bridge on Coosa river
has been laid several months; the piers have
all been finished, anil the Phoenix Bridge
Company are very rapidly put
ting the bridge together. It will be finished
about Dec. 20. Then the track-laving will
progress very rapidly. The tunnels arc not
progressing so fast. They are about two
After going beyond the tunnels the grading
from Birmingham to that point is nearly
completed. Fourteen miles of track has
been laid to Cahawba river, where it is
waiting on the bridge, which, when com
pleted, will let the track-laying soon reach
the tunnels. When the tunnels are finished
trains will run straight through.

A Farmer’s Somnambulistic Adven
From the Missouri Republican.
Antone Schubert, a well-known farmer,
about 60 years of age, in a fit of somnam
bulism, jumped from the second story win
dow of the Tiemnnn House, on East Main
street, Belleville, about 2 o'clock yesterday
morning, into the rear yard, and luckily
escaped with no more serious injuries tliaii
a sprained ankle and a bruised arm and
back. The farmer retired at 0 o’clock, and
all went well until shortly before 2 o'clock,
when he dreamed that his stock was suffer
ing for want of water. He jumped out of
lied, and, imagining that tho blankets were
his overcoat, he wrapped himself in them,
and, without awakening, mistook the win
dow for the door and jumped out. Next to
the hotel was a one-story brick building,
used for a storehouse, with a narrow pas
sageway between the two buildings, scarce
ly wide enough for a child to walk
through. Schubert fell through this open
ing to the ground, a distance of 16 feet. The
fail awakened him, but ho was wedged so
tightly between the two buildings that he
could not extricate himself, uml so doubled
up that he could scarcely breathe or cry out
for help. A wide-awake policeman heard
the noise made by the fall, nnd, thinking
he had a good catch, lie appeared u]xin the
scene with a club in one hand mid a revolver
in the other, ready to capture the supposed
burglar alive or dead. The hostler, hearing
the imlieeman enter the yard, wasawakenea
by the noise, and, imagining that it was a
horse thief after tho valuable stock, rushed
out of the barn prepared to demolish the
policeman. At this juncture a low moan
was board in the narrow passageway, “For
Uod’s sake, help mo out; I’m dying,” which
came from the somnambulistic farmer, who
was now wide awake. The hostler saw the
policeman's star, and the peeler recognized
the hostler with his pitchfork. Mutual ex
planation* followed, the implements of war
were laid aside and a crowbar and a wooden
lever procured. After an hour's hard work
Schubert was released from his unpleasant
position, nearly frightened to death, but
otherwise not seriously injured.
