If the weather permits and the number
of entries is sufficiently large, the Savan
nah Golf Club will inaugurate this after
noon a series of handicap tournaments,
the winner in each to receive a nedal
offered by the club.
It Is the intention of the club to hold
these tournaments weekly or bi-weekly,
and to offer a simple medal, of a design
hereafter to be selected, for each event.
In case the winner of one of the tourna
ments should win on another occasion, he
will receive a bar instead of another
medal. The bars will be attached to the
medal after the manner pursued by the
national and state government in the dec
oration of sharpshooters, the number of
bars to be given being limited only by the
number of tournaments a member is able
The presence of the summer has driven
many of the more enthusiastic golfiacs to
Northern links, where they may pursue
the wiley sphere which causes so much
trouble and heart-burning unscorched of
ffoi’s too ardent caresses. For this rea
son the Green Committee fear there will
not me entries enough to warrant them
in inaugurating the series of tournaments
and it is possible that that cheduled for
this, afternoon will have to be postponed.
As if to add compliJation to annoyance,
the recent rainy weather has prevented
that diligent attention to practice which
is essential to good play, and some of
those who woud otherwise enter may re
frain from doing so because of the fear
that they are not in their accustomed form
and don’t care to make a record poorer
than that which has been theirs.
The golf fever is spreading rapidly over
the South. Among the recent organiza
tions. is that of the Darien Golf Club, the
nucleus of which has been formed by the
English and Scotch lovers of the game
who are engaged in the lumber business
at Darien. The links there are soon to
be in shape and some fine scores from
•ome of the old players are predicted.
NOT TO BUILD AT PRESET.
President Egan Says Shipping Ma

The Kansas City, which is now being
given an overhauling in New' York, is

vannah line about July 3, She will be
gucoeeded by the Chattahoochee, which is
Wow taking the run of the Kansas City.
The Chattahoochee is expected to re

only some slight repairs to her engines
and boilers are required.

HE OWNED THE STREET.
A Midnight Rounder's Ride Across
Squares and Sidewalks.
People who were on Bull street, any
where between the Pulaski House and
the De Soto, about midnight last night
avore given a lively experience.
The chief actor was driving a buggy
somewhere in the neighborhood of the De
Soto, when he. decided to get a gait on
him, and whipping his horse into a run,
he started northward on Bull street,
through Chippewa and Wright Squares.
When State street was reached he chang
ed his mind, and wheeling the horse,
started back toward the De Soto at the
same furious gait. This was kept up
until the vehicle which was being driven
too near the west curbing, came to a sud
den standstill near Jones’ Pharmacy, and
its sudden stopping sent the driver flying
over the dashboard. He got up. and
climbing into the buggy, decided to try
his luck at the other end of the street,
so for the second time s4arted northward.
When he reached Broughton street he
swung the team up on the east sidewalk
of Bull street, and still at full speed,
went careening toward Congress. A num
ber of men were sitting on the sidewalk
in front of the Screven House, and they
had barely time to jump to the open doors
or scurry for the street before the team
was upon them. It flew by and
went on around Johnson Square, but
when the circuit had been made the
driver without any let-up in speed, stag
ed over the same course down the side
walk. When he had completed it for the
second time, the team disap|>eered around
Bull and State streets, and the crowd was
;ust beginning to reassemble, w r hen, with
a dash, tne horse and driver were semi
coming down the line on the third trip
over the sidewalk. This time the driver’s
skill was beginning to desert him, and he
failed to steer clear of the chairs on the
hidewnlk. and striking two, made kindling
wood out of them. Before he could re
cover himself for another dash, he was
l iken from the buggy by some of his
friends and tarried into the Screven
House, where he was kept until the no
lice, who had been attracted by the hub
hub, could be bluffed off. The buggy wa9
taken in charge and driven away by u
friends, and after matters had been quiet
ed down, the driver was taken home.
DESERTED TWO YEARS AGO.
Wronged Wife Wont* Husband to
Support Herself and Children.
Judge Falligant passed an order in the
Superior Court yesterday, requiring West
ley Phillips to show cause on June ?0 why
he should not be required to p>ay tempor
ary alimony for the support of his wife,
Georgians Phillips, and the two minor
children of their marriage, whom he is
said to have deserted two years ago.
The wife has tiled a petition for perma
nent alimony in the Superior Court,
through her attorney. Mr. James F. Ev
ans. in which it is alleged that since his
desertion of her and the children Phillips
has made some casual and oc asionai con
tribution to their support, but has failed
to provide for them in a proper and suit
able manner and in accordance with his
ability. The order to show cause granted
by Judge Falligant directs the defendunt
to explain why he should not pay also at
torney’s fees and the court costs of the
MISSIONARY KING SAFE.
Rescued From the Chinese by n Gun
In the press dispatches this morning
from the seat of the Boxer trouble in
China it is stated that in the bombard
ment of Tien Tsin Missionaries Hopkins,
Brown and King were saved by a gunboat.
It is pretty certain that the King re
ferred to is Rev. W. D. King of this city,
who is a missionary to China, and an ac
,-cnint of whose views and fears regarding
the present trouble was published in the
Morning News of Thursday.
Mr. King is known to have been in the
Shantung province in which Tien Tsin is
located, and his relatives in this city are
reasonably sure that it is he that is re
ferred to, and they are relieved to be as
sured of his safety.
THE CAVEAT WAS DISMISSED.

SURNAMES AND THEIR CHANGES.
Some Strange Tru iisforinn lions of
Names Among Immigrants.
From the Baltimore Sun.
Among the multitude of English sur
names, which number about 30,000, none Is
more common than that of Smith, with its
variation of Smeeth, Smyth, and Scnythe.
Its popularity, no doubt, is partly owing
to the fact that the word, which Is de
rived from the Anglo- Saxon Smitan, to
strike, was originally applied to any work
er in wood, clay, stone or metal. Sur
names were most frequently Liken from
occupations and pursuits, such, for in
stance. as Miller, Tailior, Carpenter, Car
ter, Fisher, (Fowler. Hunter. t .
A writer of English nomenclature ob
serves of those who bear the-e names: “It
is not to be doubted that their ancestoia
have first gotten them by using such
trades, and the children of such parent J
contented to adopt them.” Names of
this description, with “smith” added, are
now notable in th© highest classes of so
ciety, as Arrowsmilh, Goldsmith, etc. The
names of Collier and Colter although re
minding of menial occupations, which, in
the middle ages, were mostly followed by
bondmen and slaves, are now found in the
And now Prof. John Pentland Mahaf
fy of Dublin University, the archaeologist,
adds new splenk>r to the most largely pre
vailing of all English surnames by show
ing that the name “Smith” was already
known to the ancient Egyptians.
In an article in the London Anthenaeum
he states that in a list of persons occupied
in the brewing of beer, which was a favor
ite beverage with the inhabitants of the
iand of the Pharaohs,tlie name of Smith
regularly appeared in the same form in one
of the unpublished papyri that was le
cently unearthed by M. Petrie. Whether
his brewage was of the bright Pilstner or
ihe dark Kulmbacher kind—for both the
light and the dark beers were known io
the people of the Nil© d©ltu long b-*for<*
our era—is not mentioned. On© thing, how
ever, is sure, says Prof. Mahaffy, and that
is the fa©t that*in the twentieth year of
tlie third Ptolemy, or 227 B. there lived
a man in Egypt who went by ih© name of
“Smith” and brewe ’ and sold beer. “I
there any other English name who © age
can be compared with this?” a-ks the
The Germans, of course, hove at ones

their own. They contend tint the nine of

Maybe, they argue, the brewer of this
glorious surname, like so in my German
©migrants of our days, to please their new
countrymen, changed Sohmied or Hehmldt
into Smith. There are thousands of Eng

fathers of whom spelled their name

cords many of these, and hundreds of
German family name- appear changed In
it. Baseker becomes Baker; Fischer,
Fisher; Koch. Cook; Mueller, Miller;
Gaertner, Gardner; Albnch, Albaugh;
Schneider. Snyder or Taylor; Zlmmer
mann, Zimmerman or Carpenter; Gruen
baum, Grecntree; Gutmann. Goodman, etc.
There occurred \vithin the re* <Election
of this century in our midst the remark
able example of a change, or rather
changes, in the name of a family whose
first representatives emigrated from Ger
many to Pennsylvania and called them
selves Klein. Of three brothers, one re
tained the German name, another, who
left for the West, came buck as Mr. Lit
tle; the third translated his name Into
Small, and part of the descendants of the
first now* spell their name (’line.
Apropos of Jewish nomenclature in this
country, the American Hebrew remarks*
that at pr< ent it is very difficult to point
with accurate certainty to Jewish mer
chants in 4 mercantile directory or on
business signs displayed over stores. The
large immigration of the last seven years
has had much to do with this. The Rus
sians, in ' particular, with their unpro
nounceable names, have found It desirable
for one reason or another to abbreviate
or alter these to such an extent that
their origin is veiled to the searcher.
The Juedlseho Tageblatt brings the fol
lowing amusing account of a change in
the name of a Russian) Jew whose good
old Semitic name. Jacob, was *ransmuted
into “John Kelly,” while still another,
"Isaac,” became “Hitchcock.” it hap
pened in New York, which, next to Rus
sia. harbors tin* largest number of Jews
of any country or city on the globe.
Tiie Hebrew for Jacob is Ya’okob. The
second letter is given a nasal twist so
that the name becomes Yangkol, the di
minutive for which is Ynnkele. Now it
came to pass *hat Yankele, who started
as a peddler, aimed to branch forth into
a fullfledged merchant, and, therefor©,
visited a jobbing house, where he made
considerable purchases. The jobber in
question on wishing 10 make out th© bill,
inquired after his name. “Yankele” was
the reply. After several repetitions of
th* name by Ya’a.kob, or Yankele, and
efforts to pronounce it on *he part <>f the
