them with the murder. They demand

Judge Alexander convened his court
in the superior court room.
At io o*clock Sheriff Doss announc
ed the court open. Mr. Joe Lunsford
occupied the stenographer’s chair
while nearly all the local bar, repre
sentatives of the press and a Urge
crowd of citizens, both white and
colored, were present.
.The first case called was that cf the
State, vs Bully Hagan. When brought
into court the judge asked him if he
had secured counsel He said he had
not, that he did not koow or did not
think that he needed any. He sitpply
wanted his case disp 'sed of. Messrs.
Mitchell & Patten, who represented
the State, stated that owing to the
very short time that had been given
them, (having been employed that
morning,) they’ were not ready for
trial and asked for a continuance.
The judge withheld his decision and
called the next case. This was the
State vs Merritt Ghs«, Richmond
Glass and Abe Glus. Col. W. M.
Hammond appeared tor the defense
and Messrs. Mitdiell & Patten for the
State. The defense was ready but
the State asked for further time for
the reason stated in the first case.
The judge, after listening to the argu
ments from both sides, decided to
continue the case till Monday at 9

There are now nineteen cases un

Martial law has been forced upon
Brunswick. This is attributable to
the inability of council to obtain a
quorum, the demoralization of the
regular police force, only Chief
Beach, Assistant Levjson, two regu
lar policemen and a number of volun
teers being on duty. Constant
slanders and other offenses perpe
trated by sensational correspons
dents and disreputable people have
forced the lew remaining men to arm
themselves and regulate robberies,
s auders, incendiarism, protect help

MikeJ. Eagan, correspondent of
the Savannah Evening Press, came
under the ban to day. Eagan wired
the Press on Tuesday that Brunswick
w&3 a pest ho’c on account of its sani
tary condition. This was officially
proven false, but to day at the joint
meeting of the relief committee,
health board and a crowd of assem
bled citizens a copy of the Press was
read in which he stated that “affi Ja -
were offered him by people that a
certain member of the relief canvass*
ing committee was offering to barter
food certificates for the virtue of the
women of Brunswick” Eagan was
in (he meeting by the request of the
board who sent for him. It was the
first meeting he has ever attended,
although the doors have been opened
to all correspondents without restric-
tion since Thursday.
Col. Goodyear then stated to Ea
gan that his special was of such a
nature as to demand positive action
liom the board, and he demanded his
authority and the name of the
mittceman against whom the charge
Eagan, who is a large, heavily built
man, hesitatingly and m a trembling
voice replied by asking for time to
find h<s witnesses. This aroused the
people present. Hon. Jacob E. Dart
jumped to his feet, and in behalf of
the manhood of Bruuswick, the in
t^grity of the committee, and the
virtue of our women, denounced
Eagan in most scathing terms. Such
sublime eloquence, fearful denuncia
tion and characterization of an “in
fernal scoundrel’’ as he dubbed Eagan
is seldom heard. Facing Eagan, and
addressing his remarks to him and the
citizens assembled, he said in sub
stance: ‘‘It was strange that one
claiming to represent such a reputable
paper as the Savannah Press, and
who walked the streets of Brunswick,
claiming citizenship, and asking to be
recognized as a gentleman, should
send to an influental paper, like the
Savannah Press, a lie so damna
ble that it made such au impres
sion on the editor as to compel
him to head it: “Food For Virtue.”
Does this miserable cur know the
meaning of the term virtue ? Has he
no ties of womanhood that would
cause him to stop and pause before
such false statements left his lying
peer? Was his idea of virtue based
upon his association with the wanton
women of the town, who feast upon
such creatures as he? Is it not an
insult to every mother, wife, sister and
daughter who is remaining here facing
an enemy which spares neither age nor
sex, that these pore women, for virtue
belongs only to the pure, should be
charged with selling thier virtue for
I voice the sentiment of every horn
orable man present when I had back
the foul lie in bis cowardly face. He
asks until to-morrow to bring his affi
davits. Did he not have the proof
when he wired these statements ? If
he had them then let him give tbe
name now. If it was true two days
agot it is true now. Why does he
hesitate t<> give the name of the Qian
who offered food for virtue ? He may
bring affidavits before this honorable
board, bat they will be the perjured
oaths of those as false as himself, his
equtb^his associates, who would shame
respectability and virtue if brought in
contact with them. _ ^
Col. Goodyear also addressed
Eagan and the crowd assembled and
denounced Eagan in fearful terms.
Eagan begged to be given until noon
to morrow to produce the name. Tbe
feeling to-nfght is intense against
Eagan and his ilk. Cool conservative
business men are arming themselves
to deal with thieyes, murderers, incen
diaries and newspaper slanderers. The
regulators are orgaoizibg quietly, and
to-morrow afternoon will deal with
Eagau. Only about 200 able bodied
men are left here but they are sworn to
protect what is left. The excitement
is intense. Eagan is not expected to
show up to-morrow.
Later: Eagan stated to-night that
he would appear at the meeting to
morrow, and he has applied to Chief
Beach to-night for police protection.
Chief Beach says he will be on hand
and afford Eigao, or any other citizen,
any protection in his poorer.

That Canning Factory.
We are in receipt of a private letter
from Mr. E. A. Niabet, of Nisbet,
Ate., stating that he expected to visit
Thomasville again soon, and, if the
people manifest snfficent interest in
the matter, that he will go to work to
organize a stock company for the pur
pose of establishing a cannery. As
stated last week, Mr. Nisbet is
thoroughly acquainted with all the de
tails of putting up and running a
canning factory, and is willing to put
both his time and money into such an
enterprise in Thomasville. This is
the first time that so favorable an op-
qortunity has been offered our people
to start this important industry, and
we sincerely hope that when Mr. Nis
bet cornea they will give him the
necessary * encouragement and aid.
His experience in the business is that
such factories, when properly fitted
np and run, always pay handsome
profits. This is a desirable result in
any enterprise, but in view of the
urgent need that is felt here for a can
nery, and of the great benefits that
would result therefrom, it would be
money well spent if the entire stock
were donated. Thomaavil'e alone
pays thousands of dollars annually
for canned goods. If these were
canned here, the money now sent
abroad would be kept at home, the
item of freight would be saved, the
fruits and vegetables that at present
go to waste would become profitable,
and production in many lines would
be greatly increased. These advan
tages combined for a sing’e year
would, in our opinion, fully pay the
total cost of a factory. But remem
ber that donations are not asked for.
Mr. Nisbet is fully persuaded that he
can so operate a factory of $15,000
capital as to pay at least ten per cent.
As before stated, and we wou’d em
phasize it now, all our people are
interested iu this matter—every citi
zen of the county would be either
directly or indirectly benefited trom
the establishment of a canning lactory
in Thomasville. We urge our people
—merchants, farmers, fruit growers
and men of all callings who have the
welfare of the county at'heart—to
give the subject the thought that its
importance demands, and be ready
to co operate with Mr. Nisbet when
ever he comes.
Accepts the Call.
On Sabbath morning, before com
mencing his sermon, Rev. D. H.
Parker announced his acceptance of
the call to the pastorate of the Baptist
church made the previous Sunday and
of which he had been notified by the
committee appointed for that purpose.
His remarks on the subject were brief
but impressive—illustrative of his !o%e
for his fi jek and his devotion to the
Master’s cautie. His acceptance, while
highly gratifying to the church and
his personal friends, will be equally
welcome news to the community at
large. It is putting it mild to say that

member of the “Alabama” and he has

The question of public schools is
receiving very general thought from
the citizens of Thomatville. We have
never seen the people more thoroughly
interested on an important question
than they are on this. AncLyet we
have not seen an individual opposed to
the measure. We regard such schools
as among the certainties iu the near

The Burglars Again.
Some time during Friday night
the well known drug house of Messrs.
R. L. Hicks & Co., was burglarized.
The timbers which secure the iron
bars of the cellar ventilator, in the
rear of the store, had become rotten
and thus permitted the pressing out
of ihe irons. In this way an entrance
waB effected into the cellar and from
thence into the store. Just how
much was taken from the store Capt.
Hicks is not positive. He had
counted $23.70 which was left in the
cash drawer. This was taken. He
also misses fifty Hernan Cortez cigars
which sell at 10 cents, and a few
pocket books, ranging in value from
$1.50 to $4!5(> each. One of these
pocketbooks was a very fine one—
alligator skin, and s Iver mountings.
On the' inside of the clasp it was
marked “Sterling.” A few bottles of
perfumery and perhaps some other
items, not yet missed, completed the
haul. Au attempt was made to force
the money drawer by means of a
spatula. This spatula, Capt. Hicks
says, was secured from a place in the
house where no one, not familiar with
the sU re, could have possibly found
From this fact alone itwonld
seem that the burglary was committed
by some one who has waited about
tbe store and bad become familiar
with the whereabouts and condition
of things generally. Such burglaries
are becoming too frequent in Thom-
asvil’e and we hope that this one, by
disposing of the stolen goods or other-
wise, will be detected. Let every
one keep a lookout.

Mn. Editor :
I wish to iuquire whether if a
loose drove of horses cause a runaway
ou a public street, the city council is
responsible for the damages done.
Surely they ought to have an ordi
nance prohibiting this Irequent driv
ing of loose horaes along our streets,
but if they have, it is not enforced.
Is it right to expose our people to the
great danger, from these drovts, and
especially when so many ladies drive
daily? There cannot be the excuse
that they are driven to water, when
water is so abundant If there is no
ordinance dj let us hove one, and if
there is one let it be enforced. It
nothing else can be done please speci
fy the hours in which the streets are
to be given up to loose horses, and
give other citizens the free use of
them for a short time, when they can
drive around without endangering
their property and lives. .
