The race was o much prettier one than

victory from the contest, wire cheered to
On the whole, the day was better for rac
ing. For a short while there was but very
little wind, but during most of the race
there was a good, stiff breeze that ca
reened the yachts and sent them flying on
their mission. There wore more interest
ing features than the day before. For one
thing, admirers of the Dragoon had a
chanea to see her in the b ad for once,
as she got away before the Marls and
maintained her advantage for a mile or
A far smaller crowd witnessed the race.
The defeat had apparently allayed the en
thusiasm of Savannahians to n wonderful
extent, and the flotilla that followed the
racers embraced not oik half the boats
that were out the day before. As on the
first day theweath<y was threatening, and
rain seemed imminent before the race.
As on the day before, the Dragoon left
the Yacht Club under her own sail f< r
the starting line, three miles down W il
mington river. The Maris followed under
tow* of the Winona, the naphtha auxiliary
yacht. About the same time the majority
of the sailboats that were to follow the
racers got away, leaving the steamers to
The Clifton was the Yacht Club’s steam
er for the day, and a number of its guests
were aboard. Col, Merritt XV. Dixon,
chairman of the Regatta Committee, was
in charge, and a band of music contrib
uted to the pleasure of the party. On the
way from the city the Clifton got stuck
in the mud in Wilmington river and hod
to wait for the tide to float her off, but
t?he was on hand for the start of the
racers t The Alpha was run as an excur
sion steamer, but did not have very many
aboard. The buoy tender Wistaria also
followed the race, having a number of
invited guests aboard.
Through the courtesy of Capt. C. K.
Gillette, government steamer Analer
was placed ax the disposal of the Sailing
Committee for the day. Aboard her
were Chairman Frank Jones, Mr. Frank
Lathrop and Mr. H. D. Stevens of the
Sailing Committee, Mr. W, D. Simkins,
Mr. G. Noble Jones, Col. T. S. Wylly
and Mr. Rittenhouse Moore, timekeepers;
Judge A. H. MaoDonell, Commodore
Hughes of the Carolina Yacht Club and
a representative of the Morning News.
At about 12:30 the Angler left the Yacht
Club, the race being scheduled to start
at 1 o’clock. Not long after the arrival
at the starling point off Turner’s Rock,
where the rival yachts were discovered
under sail, the preparatory blast from
the Angler’s whistle was sound* and, and the
boats began their jockeying for u- position
and the start.
Dragoon Oil! First,
The signal for the start was sounded
at 1:06:15, and ttt 1:07:11 the Dragoon got
across the line in just about such a
breeze as the start was made the day be
fore. The Maris had trouble In following,
having, apparently, miscalculated the five
minutes allowed. She could noDget across
within the two minutes, and tire 53 sec
onds lost were charged against her.
Beating along In the teeth of the wind,
the boats both adopted the plan of short
tacks in order to keep away from the
wooded shore of YVilmlngton Island. Tack
after tack was watched, and it seemed
that the Dragoon was pointing consider
ably better titan the day before. Her
speed, though, was not enough to keep
her away from the Marls, and, white on
the port tack, the Dragoon passed Just
astern of the Charleston b at. The Dra
goon had not maintained her lead for
long, but while she had it, interest itt tlie
race was increased.
The wind continued hrirk all the way to
the Cabbage Island etakeboat. which the
Maris rounded 3 minutes ami 20 seconds

bad the Dragoon sailed the stretch as
well as the Marts, she would have won.
Then started the rare homeward. The
Marla led after rounding Ihe boat, and
her pace killed the hopes of the Dragoon's
admirers. Who did not expect their boat
ta ahftw. the speed she. developed. The
racers broke out their spinnakers ar.d
had all sail flying, and the run home was
fast. The Maris made it in one hour and
45 seconds, and the Dragoon in one hour

I ing the Maris eight seconds. This was
I largely due to the fact that the wind,
which was over the quarter, freshened
greatly, and the rear boat brought it up
Finished Amid Applause,
It was amid compliments of whistles and
cheers that the Maris crossed the line, and
then tlie Dragoon was watched. She was
pushed along by the breeze that she was
bringing with her, and it seemed pretty
sure that she would not be beaten as badly
as eome of the Charlestonians had bet.
It was o foregone conclusion that the
Maris would w in the race, and It was only
on the time that any betting to speak of
was done. She came faster than had the
Maris, and as she drew near the line, it
became apparent to those on board the
judges’ boat that the time by which the
race of the day before had been won would
be decreased. The event proved the truth
After the Dragoon crossed all the craft
headed for the Yacht Club, where the chal
lenge cup, which had been held for two
years by the Savannah Yacht Club, was
pre seated by Commodore W. W. Starr to
Commodore Hughes of the Carolina Yacht
Club. Commodore Starr said the race had
been fairly won and spoke of the pleasure
it had given tho members of the
flub to have the Charleston
ians among them. Commodore Hughes
responded gracefully, saying the
conduct of the Savannahians had been
sportsmanlike, and that he hoped to see
them in Charleston next summer with a
boat that would force, the Carolina Yacht
Club to strain every nerve to beat. With
cheers for the Maris and Charleston, the
crowd ratified the presentation of the cup

GEORGIA'S M’-GRO BAPTISTS.
Question? Rl.setisscd In Their Stnto
(dii vent lon.
The Georgia Baptist State Convention ;
wound up its third flays’ session at *0:30 i
o'clock last night. The sessions have all |
been orderly and intelligent and signs of
progress have been seen. The influence
of Rev. K. K. Love, who was for many
years pastor of the cliruch in which the
session, are held, is apparent, and his
successor, JRev. C. S. Wilkins, B. D., of
Augusta, endeavored to carry out his
plans and policies. Upon the death of
Rev. Love Rev. Wilkins became presi
dent, and consequently the acknowledged
leader of the negro Baptist family; and,
notwithstanding ambition for promotion
is not a lost art in such conventions, the
delegation suppressed every selfishness,
and voted unanimously to keep their new
president and leader and his entire cab
inet, together with the board of directors,
in power and authority for another year.
The delegation to the convention is large
and interest in its w-ork unabating. It
represents tho industrious, credulous,
self-reliant, self-assertive element of the
negro Baptist family in Georgia—the type
of negro who believes that his race has
ability to do something for itself. The
one prevalent idea in the convention is
that the kind of co-operation which the
negro Baptistts receive from Northern
white societies is more injurious than
helpful to the negroes, in that the power
and authority for directing missionaries
and operating educational institutions
among them, reside, by the terms of co
operation. with the white society.
Another view taken by the convention
is that since the negro cannot control
and manage the institutions of learning
that his Northern white brethren have
established for him, and, that, since ne-
I tiroes will never learn to control educa
| tional institutions unless an opportunity
is afforded them to experiment, it wore
j infinitely wi&er and better for them to
leave the management of the schools built
I by the Northern institutions to these in
-1 stitutions, and to utilize and engage their
, forces in building educational institutions
1 which the negroes can manage.

Tlie convent on 1? partial to the manner
in which the Southern white people make
contributions to the missionary and (du
rational work amon#? tho negroes; in mon
ey for their churches, schools and other
helpful institutions and that they confide
in the judgment, discretion, integrity and
ability of the negro to make the wisest
and most judicious disbursement of the
contributions thus made, not in any ease
appointing another white man to super
intend the distribution of their gifts. That
the determination to equip and manage,
some of the educational institutions, is
neither visionary nor spasmodic, is evi
denced by the fact that the convention
has bought a lot, in Macon, upon which
it has erected a SIO,OOO building, known
and designated as “the Central City Col
lege.” with a large campus for industrial
purposes, and under the proficient man
agement of Prof. W. E. Holmes, a classi
cal graduate of Atlanta Baptist College,
and a full-fledged member of the faculty
of that institution for sixteen years, has
recently closed its first year’s work with
a commendable success. The further fact
that $1,500 has been raised at this session
of the convention for the work at Macon
during the approaching college year, sup
plementing $3,000, which It has raised for
the same institution since October, 3899,
to the present meeting.
Yesterday’s session w*as given lo
womc n. The introductory sermon was
preached by Rev. N. IS. McCall Dublin,
on “Christ the Way.” l The welcome ad
dress by C. A. Love, was well delivered
| and equally well responded to by Mrs. Gar
; nett of Brunswick. The resolution on the
death of Nellie L. Cook, president oX the
Woman’s Convention, showed the high
esteem in which the deceased was held by
her associates. The foreign missionary
i secretary of national fame gave a talk on
At the second day’s session, upon the
introduction of visitors, it developed that
lhere, were several co-operative agents
present, among them President George
Sale of the Atlanta "Baptist College; Dr.
C S. Brown, special agent >t’ th© Ameri
j can Baptist Homo Missionary Society;
! Rev. E. F. Johnson, General Educational
! missionary under the board. Besides these
j were the representatives of negro ability,
' Rev. It. H. Boyd, secretary of the Negro
National Baptist publishing board; Rev.
L. T. Jordan, secretary of foreign mis
; sions. and Rev. K. W. D. Isaacs, secretary
if th© National Baptist Young People’©
I’tvsident Bale made some statements of
his work. President Holmes interrogated
him and many things were aired. Presi
dent Sale declared that be would vout’h

Hr. Brown presented his theme. He is

former owning the tail. She stood on it
and the cot squealed. In this condition he
pictured the negro and the North.
Dr. Boyd spoke in a timely manner of
the unfair treatment of negro**? North,
and ably d* fended negro enterprise. Rev.

Johnson has been named as a Republican
candidate for Congress from the First
Congressional District. The nomination
was made yesterday afternoon by the
committee of five appointed at the Dis
trict Convention, in which the Boyle wing
of the party predominated, held Feb. 13
to take under consideration the selection
of a candidate for Congress, with author
ity to make the nomination.
Tho committee met in the office of the
chairman, Lawyer J imes H. Kinckle, the
other members being James M. Ferrebee,
secretary; 11. H. Bourke, F. R. Sims and
J. E. Warren. Mr. Johnson’s name was
tho only one under consideration and a
committee was appointed to no ify him
of his nomination and escort him to the
meeting. This was done and ho
ihe nomination verbally, stating that he
would give a. reply in writing at a later
\Vh< n seen last night Mr. Johns n said
he had accepted the nomination and in
tended making the race. There are few
men in Savannah belter known than Mr.
Johnson. As the son of the late Gov.
Ilerschel V. Johnson, he comes of dis
tinguished ancestry. He became promi
nent in politics shortly after the war. He
was assistant postmaster for one term
and was then appointed collector of eius
toms for the port of phich posi
tion he hold longer than any other occu
pant of the office before or since, serving
under Grant, llayes, Garfield, Arthur,
Cleveland and Harrison. During Cleve
land’s first term lie was succeeded by the
late Capt. John F. Wheaton and under
his second term by Mr. Bro k Beckwith.
He was not nn applicant for the oilDr
under I’resident McKinley.
Notwithstanding his Republican politics
Mr. Johnson has always been very popu
lar with his fellow-citizens of Savannah,
though how fir personal friendship will
serve him in politics remains to be seen.
His nomination will serve to complicate
matters somewhat in the K-puMicun fold.
*M r. Johns on’ nomination wa
thing of a surprise to those not .in the
inside of Republican politics. It was
pretty generally supposed that ho had
retired from the field of active campaign
ing, and his re-entry i? likely to stir
up matters somewhat among other sec
tions of the party. He was not prepared
last night to say just what his course
will be, but it will be stated fully In his
letter of acceptance of the nomination.

IXM TORS HAD A LIVELY TIME.
Exciting; Topic* Said to Have Been
I)i*caMe<l by Ga. Medical Society.
The meeting of the Georgia Medical j
Society last night is said to have been
an interesting one. At least, it is known
that there were some very Interesting
questions to come and questions which j
were likely to provoke hot debate. The
meeting was largely attended, and con
tinued in session for about two hours.
Members who were interrogated after the
meeting, however, said that the discussion
had been of the most orderly character
and that nothing out of the ordinary had
The questions which it is understood
were to come before the meeting related
to the professional conduct of two prom
inent members, who were charged with
violations of ethics, the matter, it is !
stated, relating to a patient who was op
erated upon at one of he hospitals by
the two physicians in question without
the physician in charge of the hospital
being taken into consultation.
The question of the collection of arrears
of dues was also said to be a serious
source of contention, charges having been
made that the members of the former St.
James Dispensary were being discriminat
ed against in this matter. The physicians
against whom charges of unprofessional
conduct were brought, are also under
stood to be members of the Savannah
Medical Society, a more recent organiza
tion than the Georgia.
The dissensions in the Georgia Medical
Society, beginning with the formation of
the St. James Dispensary, some time ago,
and accentuated by the organization of
the* Savannah Medical Society, and the
more recent discussion of the hospital
question before Council, with incidental
developments following this discussion,
have become so serious as to at times
threaten the disruption of the society.
The probabilities are that the latest clash
has been only temporarily averted, and
that there will be further developments.
THE CIVIL DOCKET CALLED,
.Inly and August tlie Superior Conrt
AVI 11 Try Civil Cane*.
The civil trial docket In the Superior
Court was called by Judge Falllgant yes
terday morning, most of the members of
the local bar being in attendance during
the time the docket was being, called.
Cases were assigned that will consume
the time of the court during most of the j
month of July, and the entire month of
Monday the court will take up the trial
of criminal cases and the remainder of
the present month, and the first week I
in July will probably be consumed in this j
wise. For the first week the criminal cases
assigned are of no particular public in
terest, the defendants being charged with
minor burglaries and other crimes of the
like character, serious enough In them
selves, but unattended by any of the cir
cumstances chat commend the stories of

ceived with a hearty demonstration by
the Catholics of the city, the enthusiasm
of which was none the less because the
train upon which he arrived was pome
three hours late.
The train was due at 4:15, city time. It
was after 7 o’clock when it arrived. The
Reception Committee gathered at the
Bishop’s residence at 3:15 p. m., but when
the members found that the train was
greatly behind time, they dispersed, to
meet again at 5:30 o’clock. The recep
tion was scheduled to begin at 5 o’clock,
and quite a large number of Catholics
gathered at the Cathedral between the
hours of 5 and 6 o’clock. They were dis
appointed to find that the train was great
ly behind time and that there seemed to
be no certainty as to the time of its ar
rival. Many went away to return again,
while others waited tho Bishop’s arrival.
It was the first time that many of those
present had had the opportunity of view
ing the handsome interior of the new
Cathedral, and they found that this alone
was worth Ihe visit.
Shortly after the ringing of tho large
new bell in the south tower of the Ca
thedral announced that tlie Bishop had
arrived and tho scattered crowds gath
ered rapidly. The Reception Committee
was nt the depot with carriages waiting
to receive the Bishop. The committee
consisted of the following gentlemen:
Henry Blun, John Flannery, William Ke- >
hoe. John Lyons, J. J. McDonough. Dan
iel Hogan, J. E. Grady, Jeremiah Cronin, ;
J. J. McGowan, P. Barrett, F. Hart,
Thomas Nugent. Dr. M. F. Dunn. Hugh
Logan, P. J. O’Connor, M. J. O’Leary, M.
J. Barrett, Lawrence Kelly, C. L. Pren
dergast, J. F. Brooks, J. It. Dillon, J. J.
The Catholic clergy of the city also ac
companied the committee. In the first
carriage were Bishop Keiley and Vicar
General Bazin, accompanied by Capt.
Henry Blun and Capt. John Flannery.
The trip to the Cathedral was quickly
made, the party being warmly received
by the crowds gathered there. Disem
barking at tho Bishop’s residence the party
spent only sufficient time there to allow the
Bishop to robe himself in his vestments.
It was already growing late, and there
being no lights in the Cathedral, tho re
ception there Could wait but little longer.
The crowd in the church gathered at the
sanctuary, as it was announced that the
Bishop and his party were coming. The
members of the committee' come first and
took seats which had been arranged for
them in a semi-circle. A moment later
Bishop Keiley came in, accompanied by
Capt. Blun and others anti took his seat
at a table within the* semi-circle. He wns
arrayed in the handsome purple vest
ments of the bishop’s office and was re
ceived with murmurs of applause. Capt.
Blun, ns chairman of the committee, rail
ed for order and then introduced* Vicar
General Bazin, who addressed the Bishop
in behalf of the clergy. Father Bazin said:
“Right Reverend Dear Bishop: In the
name of the priests of the diocese of Sa
vannah, both secular and regular, and m
my own name, I extend to you a hearty
welcome as our Bishop.
“We trust. Right Reverend Sir. that the
heavy weight of the Episcopate will fall
lightly on- your should civ. for we will ex
ert all our endeavors to help you bear it.
We will all strive to work with you for
the spiritual welfare of this diocese we
love so well. We are no strangers to
you, nor are you- a stranger to us. Hence,
we trust that’ our mutual relations will
h irmonize from the begii r it g •Y'ou w
find, us loyal and true to you, and al
ways ready to labor with you, fo that re
ligion may flourish in the dear old diocese
of Savannah. Our aim will be to make
this diocese the foremost in the* South,
because Georgia, over which the diocese
extends, ranks proudly as the Empire
State of the South.
"We will be to you dutiful and loving
sons, as. we sincerely believe you will be
to us all an affectionate and tender
“But as all our endeavors would 1 be
futile without the assistance and blessings
of God, we will continue to pray the
Father of Mercies, and the God of nil
consolation to shower down upon you.
His choicest benedictions, and to animate
and enlighten us with His Holy Spirit.
“I now, once more, welcome you as our
new Bishop, and present to you a small,
but spontaneous testimonial of our kindly
feelings towards you.”
Capt. Blun, in introducing the speaker
for the laity, said:
“Dearly Beloved Bishop: To me has
been assigned the chairmanship of an as
sembly of the* several congregations of the
I Roman Catholic? of this < ity and to ex
j press to you, our beloved Bishop, our feel
ings and regards for you personally. Your
predecessor was a priest of erudition, a
man great and good, his equals are few.
As his successor wo know you will illus
trate like him. the faith you profess.
“The work intrusted to you by the Holy
Father is one of great responsibilities, and
we are proud to know our Bishop aided
by a corps of priests who have the inter
ests of this diocese at heart will fully
come up to the great trusts.
“I will not detain tho large audience
of your friends by any lenglhy remark?,
and take the liberty ‘of introducing the
Honorable P. J. O’Connor, who has been
intrusted with the duty of presenting to
your lordship a testimonial of the appre
ciation for your services by your friends
of the several congregations of the city.
On this auspicious occasion allow us to
offer sincere congratulations, not alone of
the Catholics of Savannah, but of also tho
many friends of other denominations here
In responding for the laity, Mr. O’Con
nor sold in part: “Right Reverend Bish
op: I have been requested by the laity
of this diocese, to make some expression
of their feelings upon this momentous
occasion. While T feel that I cannot do
