It Worth Worrying About at Pres
The nominations of McKinley ond
Roosevelt attracted considerable comm nt
in Savannah. The peculiar situation with
regard to the vice presidential candidate
had been watched with interest and pret
ty nearly everybody was ready to say “I
told you so," when' the result was made
it Is probably the first political conven
tion. of a national character at 1-ast,
where both candidates on the ticket were
nominated unanimously and with such
overwhelming enthusiasm. It remains to
be seen what effect enthusiastic unanim
ity at a convention has upon an election.
A good many people in Savannah seem to
take it for granted that it means suc
cess and those who take this view of it
do not seem to be at all worried at the
outlook. It is not forgotten that McKin
ley received a very respectable vote in Sa
vannah four years ago and there are peo
ple who predict that he will receive a
greater number this year.
Many expressions favorable to Roose
velt were heard. The Rough Rider se ms
to be popular in Savannah just as ho Is
everywhere else, and if he should take a
notion to come to Savannah during the
campaign it is safe to say that he would
meet with a flattering reception. A good
many people are already partial to the
idea of Roosevelt as a presidential candi
date four years hence and a desire to help
this idea along may gain some voles for
the ticket that would otherwise go Demo
It was estimated that several hundred
Democrats voted the McKinley ticket in
Savannah four years ago. Whether the
number, who do so this year will he great
er or less, depends largely upon the plat
form to be adopted at Kansaß City, if
the Chicago platform is used as a model,
said a Bay street man. many business
men will exercise the same independence
which they displayed four years ago. If,
on the contrary, the platform is conserva
tive on the money question, and declares
against trusts and Imperialism, the de
fection from the regular Democratic vote
will be slight.
The question w'hich seemed to arise most
naturally after the nominations was
made known, was what effect the harmony
existent In the Republican party is likely
to have upon the local situation in the
Firet Congressional District. The opinion
was freely expressed that an effort would
be made by the Republicans to carry the
district, and that their candidate would
doubtless be able to secure large financial
support from the National Committee.
That something of this kind is to be ex
pected. was the opinion expressed among
The Republicans already have one can
didate for Congress in the,field, in the
person of Mr. Tomlinson F. Johnson, but
the "regular” Republicans, that Is the
Deveaux faction, which was recognized
in Philadelphia. Insist that they do not
consider Mr. Johnson a candidate, and
that he will not get their support. An in
timation was thrown out some time ago,
that an effort would be mode to get a
goldbug Democrat to make the race.
Col. Lester, when sepn about the situa
tion yesterday, said that it is too early to
taik of these matters. It is very evident
that he is keeping an eye on the Republi
can situation, however, and that he is
rtady to anticipate any move from that

"That was a good move of Quay, too."
said the First District Congressman, “to
base the representation of the states in
the convention upon the vote cast for the
national ticket. As matters stand now the
nominations of both the great parties are
made by states which do not cast a single
electoral vote for the ticket. The North

Democratic party. 4Utid the South does the

big say so in naming the Republican can

TENNESSEE COTTON COMES HERE.
Facllitle* for Knoxville Commerce
Through Part of Snvnnnah.
From the Knoxville Sentinel.
J. A. Nelson, marine and market editor
of the Savannah News, who is among;
ihe visitors in Knoxville at present, re
calls with interest the fulfillment of Sa
vannah’s promises when that city se
cured the help of Knoxville and other
cities In getting deep water from Savan
nah to the sea. Through the ir.def nijsa
ble efforts of local and outside influences,
pressure was brought to bear on the Com
mittee on Rivers and Harbors, which re
sulted! in securing an appropriation suffi
cient #o deepen the Savannah channel no
that now some of the government’s deep
est draught transports come up to the
docks without trouble.
“Savannah is now in position to de
clare her promises fulfilled in every re
spect.” said Mr. Nelson. “When the com
mittees representing the trade bodies
there sought the support of leading com
fnercial organizations and cities in the
South Atlantic arid other Southern states,
it wos on the ground that these sections
would be benefited by deepening the Sa
vannah river to the sea. Cities through
cut fhe South were good enough to help
bv sending memorials to Congress, ami
among these Knoxville was represented
Following the success of the movement
for deep water. the establishment of
steamship lines, was begun and continued
until the present matchless fleet, of ocean
liners was inaugurated some years ago,
forming one great system of ferries be
tween Savannah and Baltimore. Philadel
phia. New York and Boston. This opened
the way for the exporting of cotton, grain,
naval stores, lumber and other ptaple
products of fhe South, which hes been
fhe means of running the clearing house
figures there to $150,000,000 yearly. On the
other hand, the advantage of the water
rate to the South on Eastern manufactured
goods, which were formerly shipped by
rail, accounts in a large measure for the
unequaled prosperity commercial inter
ests have enjoyed during the past few
years. It was freely predicted that with
deep wafer Savannah would become the
natural outlet for the territory, including
Tennessee and extending as far
west hs the Mississippi. This has come
true by the completion during the past
few weeks of the terminals of the Greater
Seaboard Air Tdne 'Railroad at a coat of

Ocean Steamship Company’s properties In
most extensive svstorn of terminals in the
United States. The Seaboard system, or
ganized nnd financed through the genius
of John Skelton Williams of Virginia
bridged the Savannah and practically
bull* an island in the swamps opposite the
city, on which have since been construct
ed tracks, sheds, warehouses and wharves
at an enormous cost. In all this improve
ment Tennessee is repaid a thousand fold
for the helping hand she extended in get
ting deep water by the facilities furnish'd
for quick nnd cheaper shipment o” ti e
cotton crop. Through the energ. tic efforts
of chip brokers the prommne=s with
which vessels for continental ior s n a
be loaded was brought to the attention of
Tennessee shippers, with the result that
products thot previously went through
other ports now’ find an outlet at Savan
nah with the advantages to the shlp?v*r
which were predicted and promised by the
promoters of deep water years ngo.
“With the indications for a larger cot
ton crop this season the’chances are for
still larger receipts at the port of Savan
nah from Tennessee cotton lands,” he
said. “Reports of increased acreage nnd
the use of more commercial fertilizer* in

ilnrd Liven, Glorious Dew ths~Gr la
sted Survivor*, \\ ho Represent
hat Is Left of the Orphans, Re
call, at Louisville, tlie Steering
Time* of ’O4.
From the Louisville Post.
Once in the dark days of 1864, when the
Confederacy was tottering to its fall, a
Southern soldier said:
• However this war may terminate, if a
man can truthfully claim to have been a
worthy member of the Orphan Brigade he
will have a kind of title of nobility.”
The passage of time has shown that
speaker to be no false prophet. So long as
the people of the South remember the
deeds which were burned into the records
of American glory, in the fire of battle,
just so long will the Orphan Brigade have
a place in he hearts and minds of all
Dixie land. It has been said, and said,
too. by a Northern historian, that in all’
the annals of civilized warfare no army,
for courage, for endurance or for deter
mination ever excelled the Orphan Bri
gade. Organized and enrolled into the
Confederacy under peculiar difficulties,
half equipped, half clothed and less than
half fed, the “Orphans” fought like ti
gers, endured like Stoics and died like
On n llnndred Fields.
For four years the soil of seven South
ern States was reddened with fheir blood.
Their "rebel yell” was heard on a hun
dred bloody fields, and* it never lost its
note of defiance. Sometimes the Orphans
were cavalrymen on foot. Sometimes they
were infantrymen on horseback. Some
times their batteries hail no guns, and
sometimes their guns had no cattle to
haul them. But never—tramping barefoot
over frozen roads, sleeping in mud, starv
ing in prison or leading forlorn hopes
against a gallant foe —did they waver in
their allegiance to the cause of the South
or flinch from the call of duty. The Or
phan Brigade had many deaths, but few
dqperters. It charged often, it tied rarely.
Its niche in history was carved with cold
steel and its memory will endure while
Kentucky soil breeds brave men. And of
all the thousands of old soldiers who have
gathered here in Louisville from every
corner of the Southland for the Confed
erate reunion none has a better right to
wear the sword of true knight hood than
the few grizzled survivors who represent
what is left of the “Orphans.”
Make-up of the llrlgrade.
The brigade, made up of the Second.
Fourth, Fifth, Six.h and Ninth Kentucky
Regiments of Infantry, an 1 Cobh’s Bat
tery, Byne’s Battery, and Graves’ Bat
tery, was recruited from eighty-three
counties of this state. Fully nine-tenths
of the members were native Kentuckians.
Such men as Breckinridge. Buckner,
Preston, Hanson. Helm and Lewis com
manded thepi. and not alone in the staff
and line, but throughout the rank and
file might be found bearers of the best
names and members of the oldest fami
lies in this commonwealth. They were
bom fighters, and the title to their birth
right has been undisputed for more than
a third of a century.
In the preface 10 his book. “The His
tory of the Orphan Brigade.” Col. Ed.
Porter Thompson writes a follows:
Twttcrud and Torn.
“Coarse, ill-fitting and ragged clothes,
tattered shoes and battered hats; ugly
and cheerless surroundings could not se
riously depress and could not at all dis
guise the intrepid spirits who were as
ready in the almost hopeless days of 1865
to spring to action at a word, as they
wore in the first flush of their martial
experience, when they had no thought but
that ba’le meant victory and victory
meant the establishing of a government
founded indeed and in truth upon the
consent of the governed.”
Gen. Joseph B. Johnston once said
there was "no better infantry in the worl 1
than the Kentucky Brigade.” In the
winter of 1863-'64, when Gen. Breckin
ridge was ordered to Virginia, he applied
to Gen. Johnston for permission to carry
the brigade with him, under promise from
President Davis that a brigade of other
troops should be furnished as an equiv
alent. Johnston replied, “The. President
lias no equivalent for it. It is the best
brigade in the Confederate army.”
Once during the war in referring to a
detail of Hood’s defense the Mobile Ad
vertiser and Register said; “Troops
should have been placed at that point of
whom not the slightest doubt existed. Had
the KentucHy Brigade been there all
would have been safe.”
To review' the history of the Orphan
Brigade would be to detail, in great part,
the Southeastern campaigns of the Civil
War. From Donelson and Shiloh to Cam
den and Jonesboro the story of the. <)r
phaiiH is one long chapter of heroism and
bravery- To begin with, the brigade en
tered service without, uniforms or suffi
cient equipment. Not until after Shiloh
were the Kentucky troops fully armed.
When Gen. Breckinridge assumed com
mand the Second, Third and Fourth Reg
iments were partially supplied with Bel
gian rifles. Other regiments had only
smell arms or shotguns. Flintlocks and
old-fashioned smooth-bore muskets were
numerous. Some could be fired only by
a match or a firebrand. Squirrel rifles
were also abundant. As late as Jan. 2.
1862. complaint was made that the Ninth
possessed only 216 serviceable guns, b* -
sides seventy old flintlocks.
\ll Sorts of I niforiiiM.
Of uniforms there was every imaginable
sort. Few were alike in cut or color, and
by far the greater number of recruits wore
civilians’ garb. Falstaff’a army was not
more strangely appareled than the host
of young Southerners at Camp Boone*.
But they were terribly in earnest. Sick
ness came to the camp and hundreds died
of measles. Exposure carried off many
others, but survivors lost not a whir
of their energy. Of cuch sniff was the
volunteer soldiery of the Confederacy
made, and none but over-powering odds
of Americans could have whipped such
Americans as these.
In the preliminary skirmish* b In South
ern Kentucky the Orphans had a hand
