A preparatory whistle will sound from
the little revenue steamer Tybee at 12:23
off Turner’s Rock, in Wilmington river,
to-day, and the Dragoon and the Maris,
freighted with the hopes of Savannah and
Charleston, will get in readiness for their
dash across the line in the first of the
three great races that are to he sailed
for the cup for which the Carolina. Yacht
Club of Charleston has challenged the
Savannah yachtsmen. Simultaneously
the flog of red, with a white center, will
be displayed on the Tybee.
Five minutes will be given for any re
maining preparations, and at 12:30 the
whistle for the start will be given. Then
the yachts, amid an excitement that wifi
be none the less because probably tense
In silence, will make Iheir start. Two
minutes will be allowed in which to cross
the imaginary line from Turner’s Rock
to the stake boat anchored opposite, and
more than that lime taken by either boa*
will be charged against her.
That is is the advance story of the
Start- of the finish, no one can tell. The
genius of designers, the skill of builders,
and the nerve and ability of amateur
yachtsmen will tell there, and Ihe grdat
Question as to which of the rival yachm
Is the faster will be settled, for one day
at least, as the foremost comes flying over
the line. ...
The measuring Committee. Mr. Albert
Wylly, Judge A. H. Mac Don all, Mr. John
M. Bryan, Mr. Theodore Barnard and Mr.
Edward Demere. measured the Dragoon
and the Maris yesterday, and under the
Larchmzmt Rules, deduced the time al
lowance that should be given the Dragoon.
This was settled upon as 3.98 minutes.
For all practical purposes this means 4
mhiutee, and, to win, the Maris must beat
the Dragoon over the line by that time.
Interest in the races is at fever heat.
Many people who. ordinarily, betray not
the slightest concern one woy or the other

and it is safe to predict that there wtll be
a great crowd out tot see the pfide of their
builders make their run of twenty knots.

If there has ever been such a fleet on the
river, as there will be to-day.
Charleston will make a liberal contri

eight or ten yachts over from that city.

that has been taken there in the effort

HURRYING I I* THE CENSUS.
Two City lliiunieratuni Have Fin
ished Their Districts.
Savannah’s census enumeration is pro
gressing rapidly. Byj the end of this week
Supervisor Blun expects that the majority
of the enumerators will have comp! ted
Iheir work. Two enumerators repo ted
yesterday that they had, completed their
districts. The supervisor has not yet
checked up their work, however, nnd so
the districts are not officially complete.
One or two others are expected to make
similar reports to-day. Tne districts com
pleted yesterday, however, were among
the smallest in the city.
The reports of the city enumerators show
that they are takir.g names at the rate
of from 125 to 250 a day each. The aver
age rate is a’bout 175 a day. The coun’ry
enumerators are making about half this
raie. This is natural, as tjiey have a
great deal more ground to cover and
twice the lime to do it in.
Each enumeration district is expected
to pan out about I.BCO population, this be
ing the basis upon the division made. Some
districts will show more and others less.
If the average holds good for Savannah
the forty-six enumeration districts of the
city will show a total population of 69,(00.
“The enumerators are making very sat
isfactory progress with their work,” said
Mr. Blun yesterday. "There has not been
a single complaint made and in the only
instance in which a party refused to give
the desired Information the person after
wards thought better of the matter and
gave the information.”
Mr. Blun is not permitted to give any
information as to the showing made by
the daily reports of the enumerators, and
in fact, he has not undertaken as yet to
tabulate these figures. As the informal ion
will have to come - from the census direc
tor at Washington it may be some *lme
before the exact total of the city's popula
tion Is officially known.
POLICE PIC VIC AT TYBEE.
Henevnleut Asnocintln.il' Will Have
An dating by the Sands.
The annual picnic of the Police Benevo
lent Association will take place at Tybee
to-day. Extensive preparations have been
made by the guardians of the public peace
to see that none, who attends, shall be
overtaken by an attack of that tired feel
ing, and a good time is promised.
The first train will leave the Tybee de
pot at 10:05 o'clock this morning, and
other trains will leave at convenient hours
during the day. The last train from the
island will leave at midnight. Tickets
for the trtp will be sold by the association
at the Tybee depot before the departure
Of each train.
There will be dancing on the pavilion of
Hotel Tybee all the day, and at nlgbt,
until the departure of the las* train.
For the dancing, two bands will furnish
the music, so that there will be no cessa
tion of opportunity for this form of
amusement. At 3 o’clock in the after
noon. Seeman and Finney, a team of pro
fessional cake-walkers, will give an ex
hibition of their skill and grace, in cos

Those who saw Mr. Van Wagenen’s pan
oramic photograph of the'naval stores

ber the Interest that was taken In It.
Mr. Van Wugenen submitted to the club
last night his first panoramic picture and
several of his later efTo-rts and explained
the method of printing, in which the prin
cipal difficulty Is encountered. It is not
the only feature which requires close at
tention: the composition of the pictures;
the combining of the negatives and the
treatment of the combination all require
the exercise of Judgment, artistic sense
and skill to produce the finished work.
Mr. Van Wagenen’s talk, while techni
cal to photographers, was interesting, as
well to those who have often seen pano
ramic photographs, but had no idea how
they were made. Mr. Van Wagenen is
now at work on a panoramic photograph

WEIIUBU AT ST. PATRICK'S.

STEALING BY’ MURPHY & CO.

Money Wilh Which to Make Hla
Departure—The Sun, W’as Fur
nished by the Firm and Mathews
Skipped—His Whereabouts Seem
to Ben Mystery—Representatives
of the Firm Are Going Over the
Accounts nnd the Shortage May
The whereabouts of W. C. Mathews, the
absconding manager of Murphy & Co.’s
brokerage office in Savannah, are even
more of a mystery than ever.- The man
who was thought to be Mathews and who
bought a ticket to Washington, allowing
his baggage to go to that city without
going there himself, hns been traced and
proved not to be Mathews. This has
thrown th detectives off the scent, and
they are now at a loss for a clue.
The charge against Mathews, if ho U
apprehended, will be a serious ono. It is
no longer a matter of shortage, though
(here is doubtless considerabje shortage,
but one of grand larceny. "It is a plain
and simple case of steal," said one of the
representatives of Murphy & Cos., who are
Investigating the matter, to a Morning
News reporter yesterday.
"Mathews wired to headquarters on
Saturday for $2,0C0. There was no sus
picion of any crookedness on his par*.
It was supposed that the money was re
quired in the business here, and the
amount Wns promptly telegraphed. He
cashed the order at the bank, requesting
that It he given him In large bills. That
afternoon he disappeared, nnd he has no*
been seen since, not by those who would
most like to see him. anyway."
It seems that Mathews had good reason
for taking his departure, andt that his
need for funds wns immediate. It Is re
liably stated from another source, that
Mathews’ shortage previous to his *2,000
scoop, amounts so far to *3.500. He is
said to have lost some of this in playing
the races, though he is also reported to
have taken a flyer in stocks occasionally,
and to have been a high roller generally.
Mathews was a married man, and it is
probable that the reports of a “woman
in the case," are unfounded. His wife
was here with him, but was sent to New
York ias* week.
“Mathews," the Morning News inform
ant stated, "was with the firm for a time
In New York. He was sent from there
to Atlanta, and was with the firm there
several months. Business being rather
dull In Atlanta, and a vacancy occurring
in Savannah, he was sent here In order
not to discharge him. We supposed, of
course, that he was all right. His ab
sence was not reported until about 11
o’clock Monday, when steps were taken
at once to begin nn Investigation."
Mathews chose a good time for his dis
appearance. From Saturday afternoon
until Monday morning, he had ample time
to put some distance between himself and
Savonmah. and Monday being a holiday,
he may have thought that his absence
from the office would be attributed to this
cause. The office was open as usual Mon
day, however. When Matthews did not
appear at his usual hour, the office op
erator supposed that he hod probably
spent the night at Tybee, and was late
in returning to th city. As he did not
show up by 11 o'clock, however, the op
erator reported the matter to tjie Atlanta
office, and steps were at once taken to
ascertain his whereabouts, but so far
ITS 33N11 ANNIVERSARY'.
Celebrated by the Sunday School of
The thirty-second anniversary of the
Sunday School of Wesley Monumental
Church was celebrated last night, many
friends of the children gathering to wit
ness the exercises that had been arranged.
The programme was successfully carried
out, and all who attended found evidence
of the good conduct of the school. It was
clear that the superintendents and the
teachers had done their full duty.
To the processional that had been ar
ranged, the children entered the church
from the lecture room below, end places
were assumed In the pews that had been
reserved for them In the central row. The
primary department had room made with
in the chancel, the chairs and desks of the
pulpit having been removed, and the little
tots occupied a tier of seats and looked
very pleased and pleasing beneath tasteful
floral decorations that added great beauty
to the scene.
Rev. Ed. F. Cook, the pastor, offered a
prayer. A hymn was sur.g by the schorl,
find Mr. C. H. Carson read a Scripture
lesson. The primary class sang and little
Misses Cora Jamar and Carrie Lee recit
ed. Little Miss Louise Parks also reeitrd,
and an offering for the benefit of tho
Cuban mission was taken. Mlsa Miudo
McMurray and Miss Addle May Gibson re
cited. and the programme was closed with
a song by the primary department.
The report of Superintendent It. B. R p
pard upon the work of the school, the
progress that hod been made and recom
mendations for its lmprovemert was a
feature of the exercises, as was the re
view of the home department that was
given by Mr. IV. B. Stubbs. The pastor’s
address to the school was found of value,
ond the little people were greatly Inter
ested by It.
Assistant Superintendent C. V. Sn-de
ker and Mrs. Snedeker received many
congratulations upon the excellence of the
decorations, which were very pretty. They
had labored Industriously to se-ure th*
pleasing effect that was presented.

DIVORCE MILL GRINDING.
Several Couples Disunited anil Sent
on Their Way Rejoicing.
The divorce mill in the Superior Court
continued ltq revolutions yesterday, but
the grist It had to grind was not o plen
tiful as that of the day before, and con
siderably less of It was turned out.
Mrs. Bessie Reed Goodruro\vas granted
a first verdict of total divorce from her
husband, Roy Turnei Goodrum. This first
step In the divorce the plaintiff seeks was
obtained on the ground of the defendant's
desertion of her. that took place in Dal
las, Tex., wlhle they were residing there
In 1896. It Is alleged that this desertion
was induced only by the defendant’s neg
leciftilnees and forgetfulntas of his nur.-
tal lies and obligations, and by no default
on the part of the wife. The plaintiff
asks that the name she bore before her
marriage, Bessie Slade Reed, be returned
lo her by the final decree of the court.
Emily Isabel Williams obtained a second
verdict and decree of total divorce fiom
her husband, John Williams, t n the
ground of his habitual drunkenness on 1
desertion of his wife. It is chargod that
Williams’ drunkenness continued ov r a
term of years, and that his flqal d’sarii n
of the wife he had sworn to cherish, hon
or and protect was but the culminating
feature in a long story cf ill-treatment. *

Damage Suit of Kebeei’a YVell*

The oft-tried damage suit of Rebecca
Wells, against the Brush Electrip Light
and Power Company was on trial, for
the fourth time, in the City Court yester
day. In the three former trials, the plaint
iff has recovered, and Just as often, the
decision has been reversed, and the case
remanded by the Supreme Court.
The plaintiff sues for $5,000 damages,
for the death pf her husband, who was a
lineman in the employ of the defendant
company, and was killed by a current Of
electricity, while stringing wires in the
southern section of the city. The acci
dent happened several years ago. On the
first trial the plaintiff recovered dam
ages in the sum of $5,C00 and $3,750 on the
two trials that followed.
Messrs. Twiggs & Oliver represent th*
plaintiff, while Messrs. Saussy & Baussy,
and A. C. Wright ore looking after the
interests of the defendant. Evidence was
introduced during the entire day, and at
7 o'clock, a recess was lakenfuntll 8:30.
At this hour, some little further testimony
The counsel for the defendant moved
the court to direct a verdict, on the
ground that the case, as it had been
made out by the witnesses, was con
trolled by the last decision of the Supreme
Court. Argumi nt was had on thjs ques
tion. and Judge Norwood reserved his
decision. It will he rendered when court
convenes this morning. Should it prove
unfavorable to the defendant's motion,
the arguments upon the merits of the
case will then be made; should It, on the
other hand, be in favor of the motion,
the case will be ended.

Mr. John A. Graham, who shot and
killed Mr. John T. in St. Marks,
Fla., last Sunday, returned to the cl y
yesterday morning. When he was seen
in his office Mr. Graham was not in
clined to discuss the subject.
It Is said, however, that the former ac
counts of the shooting have been In some
measure Incorrect- in that they located it
In Mr. Graham's room at the hotel, while,
as a matter of fact, it occurred on (he
hotel piazza, and In that they stated Mr.
Graham and his relatives were the only
persons by whom the shooting was wit
nessed. whereas It all transpired In plain
view of a number of reputable citizens of
the town, whose evidence was given at
the coroner's Inquest.
Mr. Graham expressed his regret at the
unfortunate occurrence and the necessity
that forced him to take the life of Brad
ford. He did not think, however, that it
would he proper for him to discuss the
subject, and he declined to do so.

WANT LOW Ell PEACH HATES.
Growers of the Fruit Had a Dle
etwalnn NVHh Railroad Men.
Avery satisfactory meeting of railroad
officials ami prominent peach growers was
held day before yesterday In Atlanta, and
the matter of freight rates on the croo
was discussed at great length. The peach
grower* think they are entitled to a reduc
tion on rates from Georgia to Boston, New
York. Philadelphia, Baltimore and other
Eastern points, and. Judging from the ap
parent satisfaction expressed over 'he
meeting, It seems likely that the rallroVds
will manage to agree among themselves
and accede to the reduction. Among the
railroad men at the conference were l're -
Ident John M. Egan <f the Central. 6rd
h re ght Traffic Manager D. F. Jack of the
Freight representatives of the bwdtrg
lines in the Southeastern territory rf Id
Atlanta for the discussion of cotton rites
to be maintained during next searoi. It
was thought probable that no decid'd
changes would be made in the ratei as
they existed lasj. season.
