Williams, an Accident -The Stofy ot
the Assault Upon Marin as Told by
Witnesses—The Jury’s Verdict.
Coroner Dixon held an investigation yes
terday in]to the killing of the negro
John Williams by young Oscar Marin last
Monday. The investigation was held at
Justice Molina’s office. The jury had pre
viously examined the body of the negro,

number of witnesses were summoned and
the usual crowd of spectators was on hand.
Marin, who has been held at the police
barracks since the shooting, was brought

ft. Richards, Esq.
There were but trifling contradictious in
fhe testimony of all the witnesses who ac
tually saw the shooting, and the evidence
rorroborated the accounts that have already
been given in the Morning Nkws.
STORY OK THK AFFRAY.
A party of young white boys, consisting
pf Oscar Marin, a younger brother, A. B.
Decker and Eddie Sack were going along
Barnard street, and had reached the corner
of Henry when they came u|*in a party of
hagrees,' who bad stretched themselves
tcross the sidewalk to impede their way.
The boys made a futile effort to pass, and
all except Oscar Marin turned ami went
back. He was more determined than the
remainder and attempted to force his way.
One of the negroes caught him by the
collar and struck him over the head with a
Hick. He gave up the intention of passing,
and went to his home near by and pretty
toon returned with a rifle in his hand. The
hegroes seeing this started to meet him, and
when they came up to him a struggle en

the part of the negroes, to be to get posses

three or more were engaged, and with the
Peacemakers attempting to prevent it being
fired. The parties were ail too close togeth

demonstration made to shoot any particu

fact that the jury evidently based their ver

opinion that John Williams came to his
death from a gunshot wound, the gun being
in the bands of Oscar Marin, and two un
known negro men. Prom the evidence we
cannot decide who caused the discharge of
the gun, and we consider it accidental.”

band in Leamington, Eng.
Maj. J. F. Green, who was engaged to
marry Miss Low, daughter of the late
Andrew Low, committed suicide in Leam
ington, Kng., last week. A London cable
gram tells the story of the tragedy.
The marriage with Miss Low was to take
place soon after New Year’s, and Maj.
Green was spending his holidays with (lie
family of bis fiancee. On Monday morning,
Dec. in. while the family were breakfasting,
Mrs. Ann Sophia Raynor, who is described
as a tall, handsome indy about 50, called
and desired to see the Major.
Immediately Mr. Green seemed very
much confused and dismayed, and sent
word to the lady to meet him at the Claren
don Hotel iu half an hour. Turning to his
entertainers, the Major said that the lady
was the widow of a brother officer, who hail
fallen in the Ashauteo war, and was con
stantly bothering him about business mat
But half satisfied at the lame explanation
the family saw' the Major ride off to Leam
ington, and within half an hour were ap
prised of his self-destruction. It is said that
Maj. Green had for some years been very
Intimate with Mrs. Raynor, who is a dash

The announcement of his engagement to
Miss Low greatly infuriated her, and it is
said that when closeted with him in the’
room at the Clarendon she threatened to
make certain damaging disclosures unless
the engagement were immediately broken
off. Tn-Major, in a fit of despair, snatched
a bird gun standing by and discharged it at
his lace. Half of his head was blown off,
but he lived several hours in terrible agony.

THE EARL OF CRAVEN HERE.
In Making a Tour of America He Takes
William George Robert Viscount Uffing
ton, in the peerage of the United Kingdom,
and Baron Craven of Hampstead-Marshall,
County Berks, in the peerage of England,
and the fourth Earl of Craven, aoeompanied
by his chaplain, the Rev. W. J. Stavert, are
ill the city. They arrived on the 0:114
Charleston train yesterday afternoon, and
are stopping at the Pulaski House. The
chaplain i-egistered the names: “The Earl
of Craven” and “The Rev. W. J. Stavert,
England.” They occupy a suite of rooms
on the first floor of the hotel, and re
ceived no callers last night.
Those who caught a glimpse of the Earl
and liis coin pan ion during the brief moments
they spent at tea and in the hotel lobby, saw
in the Karl a strikingly handsome youth, 111
years of age, with a manly, robust form and
pleasing address. His cheeks glow with the
color of a rose, his features are clear-cut, of
the Grecian type, short black hair and just
the suspicion or a downy moustache appears
upon his upper lip. His chaplain, Mr. Sln
vert, is also a young man, about 25 years
old, perhaps, a head or two taller than his
patron, and of perhaps slenderer build. He
is clad in the regular orthodox Church of
England uniform, frock coat, close-buttoned
vest, and the regulation white collar.
The Earl and his chaplain have come
over to travel through America, and they
have been on this side about three mouths,
during which they have traveled over Can
ada and the Northern States. They have
visited all the principal cities North and are
now doing the South. They will'go.f rom here
to Florida and on to New Orleans, traveling
leisurely and stopping at some of the more
notable cities. After that they will visit
Mexico, South America and the West In
dies stopping at ( lie Bermudas, the Mecca
of all traveling Britons.
The Earl of Craven is descended from
William Craven, of Appletree-Wicb, in
the time of Henry VIII. William, the
seventh Baron, who was born Sept. J, 1770,
was created the first Earl on June 15. 1801,
with the titles of Viscount Uflington and
Earl of Craven, and married a celebrated
actress, the daughter of John Bruuton,
Esq., of Norwich.
In 162(5, William Craven, having distin
guished himself as a military officer, was
knighted, and shortly afterward was ele
vated to the j'eerage as Baron Craven. Sub
sequently he was advanced to the dignities
of Viscount Craven, of Uflington, county
Berks, and Earl of Craven. Upon his
deatli the earldom and viscountcy expired.
The title was conferred on William, the
seventh Baron Craven, in 1801, as previously
mentioned. The motto of the Cravens is
“Virtus in actione eonsistit.” The seats of
the family are as follows: Combe Abbey
Coventry, Hampstead Marshall, and Ash

THE JASPER FESTIVAL.
The Committees Getting Things Into
Everything appertaining to the approach
ing citizens’ celebration of the unveiling of
the Jasper monument, is dismissed with the
liveliest of interest by Savantiahiaus. The
coming event is attracting considerable at
tention abroad and the prospects are that an
immense crowd will lie in Savannah during
the festival. The several committees
charged with the multitudinous details in
cident to an affair of such magnitude are
busily engaged with their respective duties.
The Executive Committee held a very in
teresting meeting last night at the Jasper
Festival headquarters, over Olmsteoil A
Co.’s bunk. A proposition was submitted
from Sergt, Walsh, the celebrated swords
man, to give an exhibition cavalry combat
at an early day for the benefit of the festival
fund and was favorably received. A com

Capt, J. F. Wheaton and Col. C. H. Olm

KING WINTER’S COURT.
Christmas Scenes In Song at Masonic
Temple—Signors and Senoritas.
A veritable Santa Claus in red coat and
hat, with his huge pack of toys slung across
bis back, came down the chimney all sooty
and brown, and stepped through the broad
open fire-place upon the stage at Masonic
Hall last night. It was Santa Glaus in Mrs.
Burke’s Christmas cantata, “King Winter.”
Tlie little folks iu the audience clapped their
hands when they saw old Santa, for he was
The cantata was very prettily given. Mr.
Robert Coin wall was gray old King Winter,
and Miss Fodie Shivers was his pretty
Queen in Siumberlaiid. Miss Mamie Proc
to. was tlie Dream Fairy, and old Santa
Claus was Mr. W. de Bruyn Kops. Mas
ter Willie Dancy was the King's page. The
chorus was composed of the members of St.
John’s Sunday school.
The cantata is a series of very prettily
arranged scenes and it is full of bright and
catchy music. The first sceno was the pro
posal of King Winter. (>ne of the prettiest
parts of the entertainment was the dancing
in Spanish costume by the Misses and Mas
ter Moynelo und Master and Miss Wilcox.
They appeared in the full costume of a high
born Castilian, with guitar, tambourine
and castanet and danced the grace
ful Spanish figures as though
they were little maids and masters from
Spain. They danced so prettily that the au
dience wanted them to appear again and
they came out in the second scene.
After the proposal of King Winter came
Santa Claus and the Court of Siumberlaiid
in Council, and then the last scene in which
Santa Claus plans a surprise. All of the
solos were well sung. Miss Proctor's con
tralto solo, “Father, Oil, Hear Us,” was
very sweetly sung.
All of the scenes were cleverly arranged.
King Winter’s court was a brilliant assem
bly, and the Christmas tree, with its boughs
laden with gifts, was admirably gotten up.
The cantata throughout was very cleverly
Mrs. Burke, who lmd charge of it, and
conducted all tlie rehearsals, was assisted in
the stage management by Mr. J. D. Miller.
After the cantata the ladies of Bt. John’s
Rectory Society served refreshments, and
the young people danced.

one of the best that has ever been seen here

and Wants to Know Why.
Duncan C. Ross says that he has Ixxm un
able to hear from Greek George since the
dispatch from him was published in the
Morning News, and the $5O deposit was
put up. He does not consider the match as
a settled fact, because the Greek lias made
no response to three telegrams which
Ross has sent him, asking for a settle
ment as to date, place, style of
wrestling and other preliminaries.
Further more he says that lie thinks
the Greek is using his name to advertise a
hipixxiroming snap, in which Greek George
and Muiilcr ere interested. Roes says that
he has been m training three days, is pre

A CITY MISSION
Rev. P. H. Crumpler to Undertake an
Important Work In Savannah.
For a long time there has been a recog
nized necessity for the presence of a City
Missionary to aid the pastors in looking af
ter and caring for the sick and poor, and
hunting up the hundreds who attend no
church and giving them the Gospel, organ
izing Sunday schools for the children who
are in no school and teaching them morals
and religion. There is more of this work to
do than the pastors of the different churches
can attend to, and no city can afford to suf
fer this important interest to bo neglected.
All are interested. Every family, every in
terest will be benefit* and, directly or indi
rectly, by the faithful labors of u zealous
missionary. No city as large as Savannah
is without a City Missionary, and these
missionaries are helped and encouraged by
all lovers of peace and good morals. In
view’ of the importance of the work, the
South Georgia Conference, at its last session
hold at Sandersville, selected and appointed
Itev. P. H. Crumpler, a man of experience
and every way competent to take charge of
this great church interest. Mr. Crumpler has
already reached the city and will atonceen
