“The Glorious Fourth” was celebrated
In proper style in Savannah yesterday,
that Is. if everybody’s turning loose busi
ness and seeking recreation and cooling

At least it was a very sensible way to cel
ebrate the Fourth, with the thermometer
above 90, and there was a sufficient amour.!
of gunpow’der burned to save the people of
Savannah from the charge of any lack
The Chatham Artillery began the day
ehortly after 6 o’clock, by firing forty
seven guns, one for each state, in the
military parade ground. There was a very
creditable turnout of the battery for the
early morning hour, end the salute was
fired In good style. The forty-seven
ports sounded at the rate of one every
fifteen seconds, and as this is the regula
tion time, Capt. Walker had reason to
feel satisfied with the work of his men.
The salute was fired with the old Wash
ington guns, the valued possessions of the
Chathams, and part of the spoil from the
British at the surrender of Yorktown.
Next year Capt. Walker hopes that the
battery will be able to fire the salute with
the latest modern guns lor light artillery,
and application having been made to Gov.
Candler for the guns of which the bat
tery has* so long stood in need.
Mr. John Rourke maintained the tradi-
♦ions of the past, and celebrated the day
In his usual style at his foundry, it Hay
and East Broad streets. Arrayed as Un
cle Sam, whom he is said to closely resem
ble, Mr. Rourke read the Declaration of
Independence and followed this with a
short speech -to his employes, telling them
what a great and giorious country this
Is. He then fired a salute from his canon,
after which the employes and their
friends joined in refreshments.
The Fourth of July appearance of the
city was unmistakable. Not only were all
the public buildings closed, but pretty
nearly all private business houses were
closed also. The large wholesalers and
retailers all closed, and gave their em
ployes a holiday. A few of the small
dealers kept open a portion of the day,
but business was so light that they soon
closed up also. The saloons were about
the only business places which remained
open the entire day, with the exception
of the drug stores, and their patronage
was not heavy, the thirsty people being
mostly at the resorts
The patronage of the eubif'rban resorts
was something remarkable, even for Sa
vannah. The excellent schedules arranged
by the railroads were freely taken ad
vantage of. Tybee drew one of the larg
est crowds in its history, nearly 2.000 peo
ple going down on the 3:30 train, which
was run in two sections. At 10 o’clock
last night there were still 2.000 people on
the Island to come up on the last two
trains. Isle of Hope was next in line to
Tybee. and is estimated to have had in
the neighborhood of 2,000 people Thun
derbolt had no attractions to offer, but
the ten-minute schedule furnished by the
car lines was freely taken advantage of
during the afternoon.
The colored people were not behind in
celebrating the day. With baseball games
at the Bolton street park, a military affair
on the parade ground in the afternoon,
and sports at Lincoln Park, they had suffi
cient attractions of their own. The popu
larity of Lincoln Park with the colored
people was never more fully evidenced and
the street railway facilities on the West
End Line were taxed to their utmost.
A feature that deserves mention was the
greatly increased use of fireworks, es
pecially cannon crackers. While the ex
plosion of fireworks was nothing like a
Christmas Day in Savannah or a Fourth
©f July at the North, there was a rattling
fire of the poppers during the day and un
til 10 or 11 o’clock last night. Fireworks
and Christmas have been so closely as
sociated the Southern mind that the
explosion of a cannon cracker upon the
sultry air of a July day has something of
an uncanny sound and arouso3 something
like a feeling of resentment in those who
feel that all the conditions of the atmos
phere dispose the auditory nerves to pre
fer soothing sounds. Burning gunpowder
In cannon and cannon crackers is a part
of the regulation Fourth of July celebra
tion. however, and Savannah is getting in
line In this as in other matters.
The most remarkable feature of the day
was the peaceful and quiet manner in
which it passed off. The police had a
very quiet day, with very few arrests and
good order was preserved at the resorts.
It was too hot to quarrel and everybody
was in too good humor anyway. Doubt
less there were some minor mishaps, but
they wrere not of sufficient importance to
Those who thought of the matter will
generally agree that General Manager
Lofton of the street railway company de
serves a vote of thanks for the service
which he rendered the public. With de
mands from every portion of the system
and special service required for every out
of town line the situation was so well
met that there could be no ground of
complaint in any quarter. The travel to
Tybee. Thunderbolt, Isle of Hope and
Lincoln Park all demanded extra service
and all the demands were fully met. Cars
were kept running until an eariy hour this
morning in order to accommodate the
3ate sojourners from Tybee.
Tho courts were all practically closed,
though the officers of some of them w ere

All Trains to the Sonsliore Crowded
■While the Fourth of July Is always a
popular day with Savannahians at the re
sorts, the crowds which spent the day
or a part of it out of town yesterday was
Quite a number had takrn advantage
of the holiday to visit other parts of the
state, leaving the night before, butlthe
really large crowds were at Tybee and at
Jsle of Hope.
At T>bce the crowd that went down
during the day numbered by actual count

of the island and the guests at the hotel
made a total of over 4,me). On one train
ulonc l.snj passengers were accommodat
ed, while the train that left the city
nbortly after 3 o'clock, and which was
divided Into two sections, took a grand
total cf passengers to the number of
1.900. The railroad was prepared for the
rush and handled the crowd* quickly and
without confusion. The only delays that
did occur, and tins, were ol

ness of the people in getting on und off
tu* pars. Up to U o'clock last night about
one half of the passengers had returned
to the city. Two ears in two sections each
brought up the remainder, tbe last car
l eirg scheduled to leave the island short
ly after midnight.
At Lie of Hope, too, the crowds w' re
unusually large and taxed the capacity
of the car lines to handle th°m. It is es i
mat.d :hat tuhy 2.000 persons visited the
i.-land during fhe day.
Thunderbolt was very quiet, there was
no particular attraction there and conse
quently th only visitors were persons
who desired to avoid the bustle and con
fusion of the more popular resorts so
spent a quiet afternoon at ihe Savannah
r.vnon unions at wilmington.
Carpenter* and Joiners Spent the

The Carpenters and Joiners Union No.

yesterday for the benefit of the organiza
tion. The 6teamcr Santee which had been
chartered for the occasion made three trips
to the island, one from the city In the
morning, and tw r o from Thunderbolt later
in the day. All told the steamer carried
to Wilmington about six hundred people,

The day was very pleasantly spent. An
orchestra nnd a brass band were taken
along and furnished music, for the dancing
which was kept up throghout the day.
Another popular pastime w'as swimming
for which the conditions of both water
and beach were excellent. While many
of the picnickers took lunch baskets

that had been prepared for the occasion
and were under the control of the Car

In the afternoon a game of baseball was
played between teams representing the
Plumbers’ Union and that of the Carpen

played, and resulted In quite a close score,
being 7 to 5 In favor of the Plumbers. The
batteries were, for the Plumbers, Blake

strong team, and will be glad to arrange

For a Fourth of July, when, according

and if taken in too strong doses often

ceedingly quiet day. Up to midnight last
night only seven arrests had been made,

The special train that carried the mem
bers of the Confederate Veterans’ Asso
ciation and McLaws’ Camp and their mil
itary escort, the Savannah Cadets, to
Waycross. left the Plant System depot
at 6:30 o’clock yesterday morning.
The train carried a very large delega
tion if rom the two Savannah camps of vet
erans, the Cadets had out more than forty
officers and men, and the veterans were
accompanied by their wives and daugh
ters. Besides these there was a consid
erable number of private citizens of Sa
vannah, who had decided to spend their
holiday in viewing the exercises and the
parade of the South Georgia Brigade of
the Georgia Division of the veterans, at
Waycross. Miss McLaws went witn the
Savannah veterans as sponser for the

The Cadets made n fine appearance as
they marched to the depot and aboard the
coach that had been reserved for their
accommodation. The company was under
the command of Capt. J. T. West.
After the departure of the special train
others of the veterans and citizens took
later trains for Waycross, reaching there
in time for the barbecue and parade. The
excursion tickets that had been sold were
good on the regular trains of the Plant
System, as well as on the special.
The* Savannah excursionists returned to
the city at an early hour this morning, a
bit tired and worn out by the fatigue of
the trip, but nevertheless professing with
one voice that they had all enjoyed it
hugely. They pronounced the First Bri

TO INSPECT IN PORTO RICO.
Florida Steamboat Inspector* Tak
ing In the AVe*t Indie*.
The local inspectors of steam vessels at
Jacksonville, Messrs. Vogel and Spencer,
passed through Savannah yesterday on
their way to Washington to receive in
structions prior to going to Torto Rico to
inspect the steamers of the New York
and Porto Rican lines and also the steam
ers in Porto Rico and to license the offi
cers of the vessels in Uncle Sam’s new
possession. During their absence the work
of the East Florida district will devolve
upon Messrs. Lee and Fitzgerald, the local
inspectors at Savannah.
The Florida inspectors after receiving
their instructions from the Treasury De
portment at Washington will leave New
York for Porto Rico Saturday. So far
as is known this is the first time that
an inspection of vessels under United
States laws has been ordered in any of
the recently acquired possessions of the
United States, through the regular chan
nels of such inspection. It is believed
that no such orders have been given for
Hawaii, and it is known that none have
been issued for vessels at Porto Rico.
It is not known whether or not the
district of Porto Rico is to be added to
that of Florida permanently, but this Is
to be announced later when It shall be
decided by the Treasury Department un
der which the Inspection service is regu
lated and managed.

With the exception of the light winds,
which made the time longer than would
otherwise have been the case, the yacht
race at Isle of Hope yesterday was an
entire juccees. There were a large num
ber of entries, end some very ciose com
petition between the owners of rival
yachts which gave a lively interest to
The regatta passed off without any spe
cial accident or an unpleasant event of
any kind, and the members of the club
have reason to congratulate themselves
upon the fine day’s sport which they fur
nished for themselves' and their friends.
The crowds were very large, especially in
the afternoon, when the people come out
as fast as the cars would bring them. A
large proportion of the crowd remained
over during the evening, and came in on
the night cars.
The entries in the races, with those in
charge of the yacht, were as follows:
First Class—Vivid. Charlie Fretweli;
Ecie R., Samuel Reynolds; Babbie, Ed
ward Demere; Vida, George Ferguson;
Julia D., J. T. Dawson.
Second Class—Georgiana. Henry Backus:
Meta W., Charles Westcott; Undine,
Frank Ferguson: Imp. Ralford Falligant;
Constance. T. P. Reynolds; Sea Gul!,
Epping Gabbett; Olga, F. J. Askew; Run
away Girl, Paschal Strong; Rastus, Will
Reynolds; Florence and Marie.
Third‘Class—Fern, Edith, Florence, Baby
Mine and Olivette.
The course for the first and second class
yachts was from the pavilion to a stake
boat anchored in the mouth of Joe’s Cu\
off Cabbage Island, and return, a distance
of twenty miles. For the third class boats
there was a shorter course of fifteen miles,
which brought them up to the pavilion and
The starling gun was fired promptly’ at
42 o’clock. The boats got off quickly and
In good order, but breeze was very
light and they moved slowly. It was seen
that without improvement in the breeze
the race would be a long one, and this
proved to he the ease.
The chief interest of the regatta cen
tered in the second class race in which
a number of fine yachts, some of them
newcomers, were entered. The fact that
there had been considerably rivalry among
the owners of some of these yachts in the
past added zest to the race. Among these
were the Georgiana, anew boat recently
brought here from the West by Mr. Henry
Backus, end put together here; the Meta
W., Charlie Westcott’s boat, with the fam
ous rolling center board; the Constantine,
the dainty little y'acht recently purchased
by Mr. J. J. O’Neill, and the Runaway-
Girl, another uncertainty, owned by Mr.
Paschal Strong. These four were expected
to contend for the first honor. Th£ prize
was easily taken by' Mr. Backus’ boat, the
Georgiana, with the Meta W. a fair second
and the Undine a very close third, being
just 57 seconds behind the Meta W., the
Constance coming in fourth.
The third class boats, or hatteaux, were
the first to show’ up In the neighborhood
of the pavilion, having lo make that point
twice in their course. Mr. New’ell West’s
boat, the F£rn, was thr first to show' up.
In fact, she made her appearance so soon
and was so far ahead of the other boats
of her class that the spectators thought
she had been pulled out of the race. Such
was not the case, however, and after tak
ing the turn around the stakeboat the
Fern proceeded to go over the course
again. Her lead was still further increas
ed on the sectond round, and she finished
nearly three-quarters of an hour ahead of
everything in her class.
First-class, winner of first prize, Vida:
12:2:42; 3:14:55; 5:12:13; 5:19:13.
It was after 5 o’clock when the larger
votes began to make the finish. The Vida
was the winner of the first prize, finishing
19 minutes 52 seconds, corrected time,
ahead of th£ Ecle R.. the Julia I), coming

ning also the medal for the best scores at
the long ranges. 500 and 600 yards.
Lieut. C. A. L. Cunningham won the
medal in the contest with the revolver,
wi h a score of 28. Sergt. W. T. Tiain won
the first prize in the second class, while
Capt. J. C. Postell was the winder in the
veteran class. In the shooting at known
distances Lieut. Gordon, Sergt. Constan
tine and Corpl. Quantock lied, each mak
ing a score of 91, but the medal was
awarded to Corpl. Quantock because his
scores at the long distance targets were
higher than those of the others. In mak
ing the scores that he did at 500 and 60)
yards, Corpl. Quantock thus won both
the troop medal and the special medal
offered for these distances.
The troop left the armory at 8:30 o’clock
in the morning, taking the cars for Avon
dale. Arrived at the range the shooting
was at once begun, though under some
unfavorable conditions' The day was
clear enough in ail conscience, but the
scorching sun heat d?W’n upon the heads
of the marksmen, and the sights of their
carbines, thus. t<J some extent .interfer
ing with the accuracy of their aim. Not
withstanding these unfavorable circum
stances the scores achieved are viewed
with satisfaction by the members of the
troop and their officers.
The following score show® the total
made by the troopers at the various
ranges, and the total at all the ranges

The revolver contest was one of the most
exciting events of the day, and the results
achieved demonstrate the skill the Hus
sars are capable of with that distinctive
weapon of the Cavalryman. Lieut. Cun
ningham was the winner in the contest of
last year and he was again success
ful occasioned no surprise. Lieut. Cun
ningham’s score, 28 out of a possible 30,
is a very excellent one. The following is
a detailed score of the contest:
McAlpin 5 4 5 3 4 4—25

The revolver contest was at 30 yards
distance. Almost every score is indica
tive of skill with the weapon that is far
beyond the average.
The Hussars concluded their pratcice at
the butts shortly after 1 o'clock. There
w'ere rfereshments then for the wea
ried troopers, and they were in a condition
of mind and body to enjoy them. After
they had satisfied the demands of the
inner man, a number of the troopers to?k
a run over the skirmish range, in an
effort to qualify for sharpshooters’ badges
and marksmen’s buttons. Some goad
scores were made in this manner, but
they did not form part of the contest for
the troop medals.
In the afternoon the troopers returned
to the city nnd their armory, where they
were dismissed. The day had been suc
cessfully and pleasantly spent.

To assume a small obligation like $2.50

more, that soon becomes a sure cure for
expensive habits, and leads to accumula
