10 HIGH SCHOOL'S GRADUATES. THE LIST COMPLETED AND COM MENCEMENT HONORS ASSIGNED. Mi## Florence Schaeffer the FlrM Honor Pupil—The linn# of I!HH> u One, fluting 66 MeuiberH. The Closlngr Exercise# Will Take Place m Hie Theater To-morrow Night—The Programme an Attrac tive One—By lteiue#t of the Class It Has Been Decided That no Floral Token# Shall Be Received ly the Graduate# at the Theater. The Morning News presents this morn ing the list of the High School graduates, the names of the honor pupils and the pro gramme for the graduation exercises which will take place at the Theater to morrow- night. The list of the graduates is a lengthy one. there being 56 in all, this being one of the largest classes ever graduated from the’lllgh School. Miss Florence Schaeffer, the.Uttie daughter of i•;< v. W. C. Schaeffet P.D., carries off the lirst honor and will deliver the valedictory to her sc bool mates. The second honor, with the valedictory to the school authorities, goe-s to Master Carl Stern, while the third honor, which carries with. it the salutatory, belongs to Master Harry Trucheled. The response is behalf of the Second grade will be made by Miss Caroline Miller. The other honor pupils, those who at tained readers’ places, are Minna Wil kins, Mary Thomas, Nellie Mulligan, Katie Dillon, Harold Prager, Estelle Gut man. Emma Truslow, May Woodberry and Ralph Meldrim. The honors do not depend upon any fixed percentage, being given to those who obtain the highest average on .all studies in the order of per centage obtained. Thus graduates who ob tained high percentages missed the credit of being on the honor roll in some in etances by only a few one-hundredths of one per cent. The honors are given as an Incentive to the pupils to seek to obtain a high percentage in their studies and this year, as usual, the percentages of the honor graduates are very credit able. The members of the graduating class concluded their final xaminations yester day. Superintendent Ashmore, Principal Train and Prots. Gannon, Wilson and Parks worked until after midnight last night reviewing the examination papers, obtaining the percentages, determining the honor graduates and arranging the programme for to-inorrow night. This was necessary in order ihat the pro gramme might be placed in the hands of the printer to-day and the programme, of course, could not lie made up until every thing else had be n worked out. The graduates and subjects of their es says are as follows: Adams. Laleah P.—“Slnng.” Atwell, Emily J.—“ Value of Time * Basch.

May—"ls the Boer War Justifiable? No.” Wood*. CeciMa—“Character.” The programme, which is of the usual order, is somewhat lengthy, but the triends of the graduates will no in ni this. A feature of this year's exercises will be the omission of flowers. This was decided upon by the faculty at the re quest of the young ladies of the graduat ing class. Though some of the more fa vored of these knew ihat they w* re cis aured of abundant floral tokens thev were willing to forego this pleasure in order to relieve others, who perhaps might be less fortunate, from any sense of embarrass ment on this score. This having been de cided upon the* Morning News is requested to announce that no floral favors will be received at the Theater for members of the graduating class. The doors of the theater will be open to the general public at 8:15 o’clock, and the exercise s will begin promptly at 8.30 o’clock. The following is the programme as arranged: Invocation—Rev. Dr. W. C. Shaeffer. Salutatory—Harry Truchelet. M usic—Orchestra. “Public vp. Private Schools”—Katie Dillon. "Conciliation vs. Coercion”—Nellie Mul ligan. “The Importance of Trifles”—Emma Trunlow.

GHADIATES OF ST. VINCENT’S ( lass of 11KK) Will Receive Diploma# niul Award# To-do y. The graduating exercises of the Class of 1900 of St. Vincent’s Academy will be held at the Theater this evening, bginn ng at 6 o’clock. The “sweet girl graduates,” robed in the white draperies of youth and innocence, will be crowned then with the laurel that symbolizes the succssful com pletion of their academic career. There has been diligent preparation at the convent for many weeks. KVen amid the worry of examinations aid the excite ment of competitive effort for the medals and honors that are to be bestowed, the young women of the graduating class have given time and attention to those features of the commencement exercises that are purely ornamental, intended for the pleas ure and entertainment of the friends of the institution and themselves, who will ihrong the Theater to-day, aid the pro gramme, as completed, promises a fund of enjoyment. The valedictory to classmates and fac ulty will be delivered by Miss Annie Hous ton, while the salutatory, the greeting of the class of 1900 to those who attend the exercises, will be read by Miss Helen Ly ons. The prizes offered by the academy are very many, and these will be present ed to the successful contestants •by Rt. Rev. Benjamin J. Kelley, Bishop of Sa vannah. It is possible also that Dr. Keiley will make some brief address to the members of the class. As is customary the musical programme will be extensive, the Sisters devoting al ways much attention to this branch of ihe school work and their pupils attain irg, with the same regularity., a com mendable d*gree of finish and skill in exe cution. The Mandolin Club of the acudemy will play several selections during the ex -4 roises. The orchestra will be under the direction of Mr. John Wh gand and there will be orches'ral accompaniments for most of the musical numbers on the pro gramme and for the Delsarte exercises, posturings and tableaux that will be among its f< atures. Some of the prize-winners have not yet been announced, so that the bestowal of these cmolems of success will be a pleas .int surprise for those who are 10 receive them Those prize-winners whose names have made public by the faculty have bren announced from time to time in the Morning News. While the exercises are primarily those of the graduating class, its members will not be the only pupils of the academy who will participate. The girls of the senior class- s will assist in the choruses and tableaux. For one of the numbers there will be a descriptive ballard. the words of the singer bring illustrated by the gestures of t.he other members of the class. It is rather expected that a number of visitihg 'Catholic clergy will attend the exercises! Should they do so their pres (nee w ill be a source of encouragement and inspiration to ihose who will partic ipate, and their interest, thus manifest ed, of congratulation to the Sisters of Mercy, by whom the academy is con ducted. The scholastic year that comes to an end to-day' has been one of the most success ful in the history of the academy. The enrollment has been larger than it has b en for a number of years and the dili gence and aptness displayed by the pupils of every grade and the progress and ad vancement they have made have been most encouraging to the faculty. WEDDED AT THE DE SOTO. Nuptial# of Air. Frank 11. Williams and All## Alnmle Bennett. Mr Frank Hardee Williams and Miss Gertrude Bennett were married in the drawing room of the De Soto yesterday at noon by the Right Reverend Bishop B. J. Kelpy, assisted by Rev. Father R. F.

At its conclusion, after Mr. and Mrs. Williams had received the congrat ulations of ihe Bishop and Father Ken nedy, the strains of the Bridal Chorus were again taktn up and the bridal party returned to the reception room, where tiny were followed by numerous friends eager to wish them long life and happi ness. The bride is a most attractive young lady, well known and very popular, with large circles of friends in New York, Philadelphia and Washington, as well as in this city, her home.

The convention to name a Democratic candidate for the First Congressional dis trict will he held at Statesboro to-day. The Chatham delegation, accompanied by Congressman Lester and his secretary, W. W. Sheppard, Esq., will take the 8:25 train on the Georgia and Alagama Railroad this morning, which will place them in Statesboro at 10:45 o’clock. The -delegation consists of Col. J. H. Estill, Mr. P. A. Stovall, Mr. T. P. Rav enel, Mr. S. Herman, Mr. F. C. Ba t?y, and Mr. Gordon Saussy. The convention will probably be called together nt noon at the Court House nt Statesboro. All the real business before the convention can be transacted inside half an hour, but ns the convention will practically have the day before it the members will doubtless take their time. Col. Lester will be called upon, of course, to address the convention after the nomi nation has been made. He will have am ple subjects from which to choose, among the number the recent Republican Con vention and its very vulnerable platform, the extravagant record of the last Con gress, and the imperialistic tendencies of the present administration. it is possi ble that Co]. Les<ter may take occasion to explain his vote upon the Nicaraguan ca nal bill, though this matter is prooab y of more interest to the business men of Sa vannah than to the people of the district at large. As stated by the Morning News in its first interview with Col. Lester aft er his return home, the Savannah con-* gressman voted against the “isthmian ca nal" bill, not because he is opposed to the construction of the canal, hut because he is opi>osod to the manner in which the bill proposes to go about this imiK>rtant work. “The Nicaraguan, or some other isth mian canal, will doubtless be built,” said Col. Lester yesterday to a Morning News reporter. “In ail probability a bid for this purpose will be passed at the session of Congress this winter, but it wi 1 not lie the bill recently passed by the House.” “What.are your objections to the bill as it now stands?” Col. Lester was asked. “There are a number of objections,” he replied. “In the first place the bill locates the canal through the states of Costa Rica and Nicaragua before any agreement has been reached 1 with these count ties, the President being required to negotiate with them as to terms upon which they are to permit the canal to be built. Reasonable business judgment would require that the terms be agreed upon before the location is made, as otherwise those two countries will have it in their power to exact any terms they please. Another ground for objection is that it is not known yet which will he the most practicable route for the canal. For the purpose of determining this a commis sion. known as the Isthmian Canal Com mission. is now ot. work ascertaining the best location. About 800 people are in the employ of the commission. An appro priation of $1,000,000 was made by the last Congress for the purpose of investigating the several routes, a provision of the act authorizing the President to make full and complete investigation of any and all practicable routes acioss the Isthmus of and particularly to investigate the two routes known as the Nicaragua and the Panama routes, with a view’ of determining the most practicable route. The commission has not yet made its re port, bill will do so some time this year. “Another objection to the bill in its pres ent shape is that it does not meet the obstacles interposed by the ('iayton-Bul wer treaty between the United States and Great Britain. These obstacles can doubtless be overcome in some way. “Every member of Congress is in favor of building the Isthmian canal,” said Col. Lester, “and a bill for the construction of such a canal will doubtless pass both branches of Congress at the next session. The House bill referred to carries an ap propriation of $10,000,000. and in addition authorizes the expenditure of $140,000,000 more, besides committing the government to all other charges w’hlch may be in curred, such as claim* by Nicaragua and Costa Rica and by citizens of those coun tries for land taken and property dam aged and also for the compensation of parties who have already undertaken to build canals, should any of their routes be adopted.” The opposition to the bill Included some of the leading Republicans of the Hou# ■ besides anumberof Democrats, among the former being Burton of Ohio and Duiliver of lowa. An interesting question which cameupin the conversation with Col. Lester was as to the possible increase in congressional representation as the result of tt.e census which is now being taken. "I hope there will be no increase in rep resentation," said Col. lister. "We have 356 representatives in the House now ani it is entirely too many for the proi>er transaction of business. The conditions are bad enough now without making them any worse.” At the session of Congress following the last census Col. Lester introduced a bill materially reducing the number of repre sentatives by increasing the proportion of population to districts. It was a 1111 which Col. Lester thought would meet with favor from the thinking members, but it received just four votes. The last census gave Georgia a popula tion of 1,837,353. The state has eleven congressmen, which should give a imputa tion of about 167,0tX1 to the district. The increase in population, according to the census of 1890, was 295,173, and ihe present census Is naturally expected lo show a still greater increase, placing Ihe state's population considerably over 2.000.0 W. With no change in the basis of representation, Georgia should easily gel one more con gressman, at least. HELD BY THE CO Mil ISSIOYEH. IVllensky Hnnnndrd for Action of Federal Grand Jury. M. Wilensky was held by United Slates Commissioner Lewis yesterday afternoon to await the action of Ihe Federal grand Jury, upon a charge of concealing from the receiver of the court some of the assets of the bankrupt Savannah Shoe and Dry Goods Company. The facts in the case are well knawn and understood, the hearing having been in progress, in one shape or another, for two or three months.

SPECIAL FOR THE REUNION. Savannah Will Haie One if Attend- , uucc From Here Warrnnt#. A meeting of the Confederate Veterans’ i Association, to consider the matter of the i reunion of the South Georgia Brigade, to be held at Waycross on July 4, was held ! at Confederate Hall last night. Presi- I dent Robert Falligant presided. Those present were polled for the pur- | pose of ascertaining how many of them ; would attend the reunion, and about fif teen signified their intention of going to Waycross. There are others in the asso ciation who are known to have decided to attend the brigade* reunion, and others who have not yet ascertained if it will be possible for them to do so. but who will go if they can. With the delegation from AlcLaws’ Camp theie is every indication that Savannah will be largely represented. Messrs. John S. Haines and James C. Cornell were appointed a committee to canvass the members of the association and urge their attendance upon the re union. It was reported that a special train would be offered by the Plant System, in case the attendance from Savannah warranted it. With the members of the two camps and their families, the citi zens of Savannah who will attend to watch the gathering of the veterans, tnosee who will come from points north and west of the city and take the train at this point and the military escort the as sociation hopes to have, it is believed, that there will be enough passengers to warrant a special train. Should there not be, however, special* cars will be at tached to the regular train for the use of the veterans and their familiees. Col. M. P. Usina was appointed a committee of one to look after transportation. As to the escort there is still some doubt. The Savannah Cadets have made a provisional tender of their services and will go if a sufficient number of the com pany decide to make the trip. Gen. Me- Glashan w r as authorized to communicate with Capt. West, commanding the Cadets, on the subject and to accept the esecort if it is ultimately and positively offered. President Falligani nanjed the following delegates from the association to the re union: James Leonard, J. W. Mclntyre, J. F. Kollo<-k, George Turner, M. P. Usina, J. P. White, T. N. Theus, M. C. Kollock, John Knox and James C. Cornell. Gen. McGlashan announced that Miss Elizabeth V’. Me Laws had been appointed sponsor for the brigade at the reunion, and Miss Virgie .McLaws, her first maid of honor. The association elected Miss M. 13. McGlashan as its sjjonsor, with Miss liuldu McGlashan as naid of honor. The veterans indulged in some good-na tured chaff w ith each other os to the fear ful drought that is said to prevail in Way cross, even in the rainy season. Some anx iety was exhibited by the members lest the Waycross authorities should resent the introduction into their town of any thing designed to cure the thirst born of much marching on a hot summer's day, and the Refreshment Committee was in structed to deal as gently with the natural prejudices of the Waycrossites as a due regard for the comfort of those from Sa vannah would admit. It was suggested that Waycross might follow the example of another Georgia city and suspend some of her ordinances that would otherwise interfere with its visitors’ enjoyment of the occasion. President Falligant announced that he had received from the officers of the Sj vananh Volunteer Guards a formal tender f the services of the battalion as escort to the association at the next reunion of the United Confederate Veterans, to be held next year in Memphis. The Guards, said the president, would attend in gray uniforms. The statement was received with applause and the escort was accep’ed by an enthusiastic vote. The gray uni forms pleased the veterans and G c n. M •- Ghashan voiced the general opinion whe.i hc> sai that “no organization could or would have a more gallant and splendid escort.” The association received from Mr. Vic tor G. Schreck a photograph of the cere monies at Laurel Grove on last Memorial Day. The photograph is a most faithful and admirable one and an excellent speci men of the photographer’s art. The sec retary was instructed to transmit the thanks of the association to Mr. Schreck. The picture will be hung with others up on the wall of the hall. TECH BOVS GRADUATE. One of tlie Eight Graduate# From Savan mill. The graduating exercises of the Geor gia School of Technology in Atlanta will take place to-Jay. Eight young men will receive diplomas, among them one from Savannah, Mr. C. S. Jones, who will graduate as mechanical engineer. The others are Sidney L. Rich, Atlanta, ele> engineer; Albert Skaloyski, Augus ta, electrical engineer; H. L. Freeman. Augusta, electrical engineer; P. B. La mar, Augusta, mechanical engineer; R. J. Binford, Bainbridge, electrical en gineer; W. R. Wynne, Rome, electrical engineer; C. S. Wright, Reeve’s Station, mechanical engineer. The Savannah Loys who have attended the school during the year will return heme to-morrow. One of them, Mr. Wil lard Sullivan, although an undergraduate, lias received an offer of an excellent po sition in a mill in Pittsburg, Pa., which he has accepted. The students of the Tech, seem particularly fortunate in securing good places even before they graduate. l'roMtrated by the Kent.

EVIDENCE WAS TOO WEAK. JI DGE DIRECTED A VERDICT OF SOT GUILTY I\ SABHO'S CASE. Evidence Indicated That the Stvoril * Swallower Wn Mentally or Mor ally Unbalanced, but Old hiot Fur nish the Certainty of the Dcfend ant'a Guilt of the Crime of At tempted Abduction the Law De mauda—"Only a Rare Suspicion Engendered,** Snta Judge Falll gant—Fre-lon Everett and Hl* Father on the Stand—Sabro's Let ter* to the Hoy. King Sabro has been given his liberty. At the conclusion of the evidence for the state, ot yesterday’s trial in the Superior Court, Mr. R. L. Folding, who represent ed Sabro. moved the court to direct a ver dict of not guilty, and Judge Falligant sustained the motion and directed the verdict. The hearing of the case was not with out its interesting features, nor, indeed, without its pathos. It developed to the fullest extent the strange and unreason ing infatuation that possessed Sabro, of which the boy he was charged with hav ing attempted to abduct, Preston Everett, wus the object. It revealed the fact that the man is mentally or morally wanting, and excited the sympathy of the court spectators, rather than their indignation. The opinion was freely expressed that the insane asylum would better suit Sabro as an abiding place than the penitentiary, and that his incarceration in the former institution would better answer the dic tates of good sense and the demands of Justice. John R. Everett, the father of the boy whose abduction Sabro, or Fashsvell, or Parsons, as he variously known, is charged with having attempted, was the first witness placed upon the stand by, the state. In answer to the questions propounded to him by Mr. Thomas L. Hill, who conducted the prosecution, Mr. Kverett told what he knew about Sa bro's efforts to get the bov away from his heme and from under the protecting influence ot his family. But the evidence of (ho witness was made up more of charges and statements of his opinion as to what he conceived to be Sabro's inten tions, than of bald facts known to him personally. Preston followed his father on the stand and tcld the eld, old sto y all over again. It has been printed so often that its repetition is unprofitable and would cer tainly be tiresome. The several attempts made by Sabro to get word with the boy. his own fear and aversion for the man and the circumstances of the night when Sabro made the alleged attempt to kid nap him were entered into and described at length. According to Preston’s evi dence nothing That had been said to him by Sabro, when they met in Madison square, on the Sunday evening when the crime is said to have been attempted, could justify more than a faint suspicion that it was the man’s intention to carry him away* against his will. According lo Preston what Sabro did say was to tell him he w*as going away, to which he added a request to be al lowed to send the boy money*, as he claimed to have been in the habit of do ing. Before there was an opportunity for more extended conversation young Sauls had jumped the sword swallower and the fight was in progress. Several of the lerteres written by Sabro to the boy* were offered in evidence. They were of the most weakly sentimental description, abounding in professions of attachment and maudlin terms of en dearment. They were sufficient to convict any man of being a fool, but scarcely* of the crime of attempted abduction. While, of course, it may- have been Sabro's in tention to attempt the forcible abduction of young Everett, there was nothing in the letters or in the other evidence suffi cient to satisfy the minds of the jury of the guilt of the accused beyond a rea sonable doubt. "On the contrary,” said Judge Falligant, "the evidence is not suf ficient to do more than raise a bare sus picion of the defendant's guilt of the crime for which he has been indicted." When the state's evidence was in, Mr. Folding moved the court to direct a ver dict of not guilty. In support of his mo tion Mr. Folding briefly out ined the evi dence in the case, pointing out that none had been submitted that could do more than raise a suspicion of Sabro’s guilt. There was nothing in the man’s conduct, Mr. Colding argued, that contradicted his statement in his note to Preston, that he was going away* and only wanted to tell the boy goodby. Such a desire was in entire accord with the affection that Sa bro's every action in connection with Preston evinced. Judge Falligant took the same view of the matter and in a few words, expressive of his agreement with the legal correct ness of the contentions of coun:*el for the defendant, directed the Jury to return the verdict of "not guilty.” The verdict was prepared and signed by Foreman Richard W. Adams and Sabro was given his liber ty. t it did not endure for any great length of time. Scarcely had the discharged de fendant left the court room, when he was arrested on a warrant sworn out by- Mr. Everett in the court of Magistrate Kline, in which he was charged with the theft of the theatrical costume and ptop erties that Preston had used when the vaudeville troupe of which he and Sabro were members was on the road. The crowd that had listened to the hearing in the Superior Court room fol lowed the officer who made the new arrest and his prisoner to the office of Magistrate Kline, on Drayion street. The crowd thronged and overflowed the premises, so that the prisoner and counsel for both sides were admitted to Magistrate Kline's private office, where the hearing was had. Sabro said that the costumes had been left by the boy in ihe express office at Rome, and Ihat he had never had them in his possession since. It was apparent, ns Mr. Colding pointed out, that even if the man was guilty of ihe crime of larceny, the courts of this couny had no jurisdiction, and the war rant was dismissed.
