THOUGHT THEV HAD WHITE.
Supposed Murderer of Daviil Ander
son Still at I^irjtr.
Detective J. J. Garrliy made a flying
visit to Fernaniina yesterday to bring
back, as he supposed, Louis White, alias
“Taffy" a negro badly wanted here for
the murder on Feb.,l2, of David Ander
son, a Darien negro.
The detectives have been on the 10-dc
out for the man ever since the crime was
commatud, so when they heard that he
had been located in Darien they determin
ed to make assurance doubly sure, so
eeivt down one of their colored sleuths
who was supposed to know the man
wanted, and who they thought would
be able to spot him, and have him arrest
ed without trouble. The sleuth struck
town all right and 'figuring out that the
suspected darky was the right man, had
him arrest'd. and notift'd the detectives
to that effe t. But, alas! the best laid
plans of mice and men "gang aft aglee,”
and so it proved in this case, for when
the detective reached Frrnandlna the
prisoner not only denied that he was
"White, but proved the fact, and was re
leas'd. There Is an explanation coming
from that trusty colored sleuth, but it
has not put in an appearance yet. Mean
time White, who is supposed to be lurking
somewhere In this vicinity will doubt 1 ss
take the hint and make h mself scarce.

seph Herzog, stood beneath the canopy
and awaited the bride, who entered with
her father at the first notes of the wed
ding march from “Lohengrin.” Her beau
tiful gown of white chiffon over taffeta
was almost entirely covered with point
duehesae, which had been her mothers
wedding lace. The short French waist
was of accordion-pleated chiffon with yoke
and sleeves of the duchesse lace, while
the skirt was made of a succession of tiny
ruffles of chiffon beneath an overdress of
the lace. H**r tulle veil was fastened
with orange blossoms, and she carried a
white and gold prayer book end a lovely
shower bouquet of lilies of the valley.
Only the immediate family was present

Mrs. MeYere is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. J. Perlinski. Sue is exceeding

graceful, with a cordiality of manner
that has won for her much admiration.

Associa t ion—Trip on the River n
New Experience to Some and Fan
The annual meeting of the Clerks, Sher
iffs, Chiefs of Police and Marshals’ As
sociation of the state was called to order
yesterday by President C. Dampier in
the Superior Court room.
Rev. Dr. W. C. Schaeffer of the Luth
eran Church of the Ascension delivered
an eloquent and impressive prayer, in
voking the Divine blessing upon the de
liberations of the association and upon its
members’ performance of the important
duties committed to their care by the peo
pfe“'of th© state.
At the conclusion of Dr. Schaeffer’s
prayer Clerk J. K. P. Carr introduced
City Attorney S. B. Adams, who, on be
half of th© Mayor and Aldermen of Sa
vannah, welcomed the association to the
city. After assuring the members that
Savannah was always glad to open
gates to the citizens of Georgia and that
she was especially proud w’hen she was
honored by the presence of those officers
of the law to whom the state’s adminis
trative functions were in large part com
mitted. Mr. Adams turned to the discus
sion of the importance of the association
and the power for good it was in a po
sition to exercise.
Mr. Adams’s speech was received with
applause by the members of the associa
tion, w’hich interrupted his remarks fre
quently and was redoubled as he took his
seat. The response for the \association,
was made by Mr. R. P. Hall, clerk of the
Superior Court of Dougherty county. Mr.
Hall thanked Mr. Adams for his courteous
greeting and the local members of the as
sociation for the warmth of their recep
tion of the visitors.
In making his report President Dampier
alluded humorously to the trials of the po
lice officers and sheriffs' of the state, in
cluding their efforts to succeed themselves
He sioke seriously of the fact that tom
of the most dangerous duties that the
sheriffs and their deputies have to per
forui, must be performed entirely w.thou
compensation from either the state o r
county. He suggested that an effort be
made to secure the enactment of a law
that would remedy this stale of affairs.
On© principal object of th© association
said the president, was to bring into re
lations of cordial harmony the various
classes of officer© who compose its mem
bership. It sometimes transpired that
their was friction between the sheriff of
a county and his deputies and the police
of a city located in that county because
of or concerning the arrest of Criminals
It was his hope, said President Dampier,
that all of these differences now existing
might be reconciled and that the present
and other meetings would serve so to bring
th© members of the association together
that no other differences would arise in
The president alluded also in his repor*
to th© loss the as so- iation had sustained
in the death, since the last meeting, of
Sheriff John T. Ronan, of Chatham, “that
veteran of our organization and grand old

ture should be m ; mo ialized to enact such
a law, the officers agreeing that scarce
anyt! ing that could be done w nld bet
ter facilitate the arrest of criminals at
There were ether matters that it had
been intended to discuss at the fi st ses
sion, but some of the members were im
patient ar and it was determined to post
pone discussion and action upon these
quest ons until to-d iy. After some desul
tory argum nt, the flee ion of officers was
announced as the next Older of business.
There were iwo nominations for several
of the offices, but those nominated, other
than th se finally chosen, declin'd to p r
mit the use of the r name* and the choice
of the association was unanimously as
President—C. A. Powell, clerk of the Su
perior Court of Macon county.
First Vice President—James K. P. Carr,
clerk of the Superior Court of Chatham
Second Vice President—A. J. Conoly,
sheriff of Brooks county.
Secretary and Treasurer—H. E. Allen,
deputy clerk of the Superior Court of
Sergeant-at-Arms—C. R. Cooley, deputy
sheriff of Muscogee county.
President Powell has been secretary and
treasurer of the association for five years
and his election to the presidency is a
well-deserved recognition by his asso
ciates of his diligent and untiring services
in their behalf. After his election he was
escorted to the chair and presided over
the remaining part of the session.
During the meeting and after the re
cess for the day had been taken refresh
ments were served In the office of th©
sheriff, and the. members of the associa
tion did them full Justice. In dallying
with the punch bowl and in swapping
yarns, telling jokes and reviving old mem
ories of former meetings, the officers pass
ed the time until 2 o’clock. At that hour
they marched from the Court House to
the Whitaker street dock, where they
boarded the steamer Alpha for a trip on
THE TRIP OX THE RIVER.
The Oflleers Enjoyed a Sight of
Terminals noil Old Orenn.
The river trip was a pleasing experi
ence to all who were of the merry party
aboard the Alpha and a novel one to a
number of the visitors, who had never
had an opportunity to see the harbor of
Savannah and the works of improvement,
some of them recent, that line its shores.
The Alpha steamed up the river as far
as the Seaboard Air Line bridge. At
this point the turn was made and the Al
pha. retracing her course, proceeded out
to sea, reaching and rounding the bell
buoy at about 4:30 o'clock. The steamer
reached the city dock In time to permit
those of the visiting members of the as
sociation who cared to do so to take Ihe
8.35 train for Tybee, where to-day's ses
sions of the convention will be held.
The trip on the river was a pleasant
one. The visitors were out for a good
time and the local members of the asso
ciation saw that they had It. Those who
had charge of the trip bore in mind the
saying that on such occasion It Is wise to
have "enough to eat and a little more
than enough to drink, for thirst Is a
dangerous thing.’’ Nobody suffered on

them to reach the island much before the
It Is believed that the assoCtaition will
conclude its business during to-day and
that the adjournment will be taken this
afternoon. A number of the members of
the association, however, will remain over
for several days, returning to their homes
about the first of next week.
The principal business to be transacted
to-day will be the consideration of bills
relating to matters of administration of
the criminal laws, w’hich the association
desires to have remedied. The next place
of meeting will be chosen and resolutions
of respect and sympathy will be passed
in reference io the death of the late
Sheriff John T. Ronan, who was one of the
most active and enthusiastic members the
association has ever had.
COL. REILLY’S RETIREMENT.

OUlcers of the First Regiment.
Col. Peter Reilly has just received from
Capt. Waiter E. Coney a copy of the res
olutions adopted by a committee of the
board of officers of the First Regiment cf
Infantry upon the occasion of his retire
ment as lieutenant colonel of the regiment
over two years ago. This was the first
notice ever received by Col. Reilly of the
action of hiss brother officers with whom
he was so long and so honorably associ
ated. Many of his friends thought it
strange thai no notice was taken of the
retirement of an officer who had been con
nected with the regiment in. a high posi
tion for so many years and Col. Reilly
himself thought it strange that there had
been no recognition.

IJ.l J . A. C. S., as it was then called, which
position he filled until the clote of the

retirement, has been lieuierant colonel of
the regiment, only physical dLablity

which he had served faithfully and effi

furniture and property were levied on

Georgians charged fraud in the target pit,
and that there was fraud there would
seem to be no room for doubt, but we
do not believe that the Jerseymen, as an
organization, were cognizant of the
Neither, by the same token, has Savan
nah ever charged the Jerseymen with
fraud. On the contrary, the officers of
the team expressly repudiated the Idea
of making any charges whatever against
the association or tho range officers, di
recting the evidence at their disposal,
ana it was overwhelmingly abundant, at
the markers in the pits. Their quarrel
with the association under whose aus
pices the matches at Sea Girt take place
is founded on th© fact that their every
effort to secure justice, from the time the
first charge was made, was delayed, hin
dered and finally denied. This in the face
cf the fact, admitted by every unpreju
dlce 1 observer from other states, and even
by an Ailantian, quoted in the Journal,
who was a member of ihe Georgia team,
that “that there was fraud there would
seem to be rio room for doubt ”
The Journal article is unfortunately put.
to say the least of it, and Savannah men
were indignant when they read it. That
the action of a dozen or more reputable
citizens of Savannah, most of whom are
officers in the state service, including the
state inspector of rifle practice,
men who enjoy the respect of
every one here. whose acquaint
ance with ihe ethics of rifle shoot
ing and the laws of sport, as well as the
code that obtains among gentlemen, can
not be questioned, should be characterized
by a member of the Georgia team as
“hardly sportsmanlike” is not pleasing to
Col. George T. Cann, state inspo tor gen
eral of rifle practice and a leading member
of the Georgia team at* Sea Girt for a
number of years, when seen by a Morn
ng News reporter expressed his regret at
he appearance of the article.
The team that lo©i the Hi t n it _
hrough unfair work in the j 1 s. r< pr.
rented Georg.a In every sense of the term
aid Col. Cann. “It was se.e.ted from
i hose who went on to Sea Girt from vu
rious points in thi6 state, after conic
at the targets. Th© cor red mess of the
position it assumed, the thoroughly court
eous manner in which its contentions were
the absolute lack of vituperation
of the range officers or the New’ Jersej
State Rifle Association and its conduct
of the case throughout are approved by
every man who is at once unprejudiced
and familiar with the facts. The ev.denc©
we offered was positive, direct and over
whelming. We presented it in the assur
ance that we would receive justice and
when Jufi-tkte was denied us we determined
not to appear again on the range. In this
determination there is nothing unsports
manlike, nor cafi it be made so by a mere
'H we- er,” continued Col. Cnnn, “tha
our ac.i n is unsportsmanlike is asserted
by the X w Jersey officials in charge of
the ranges at Sea Girt. That, of course
is a ms:ter of op nlon and gto aphy, tut
I should r gret exee dingly to s e the
cid of Netij Jersey upheld and the side
of Georgia besmirched and discredited by
a team of Georgia men. When I o nader
that ihis action was taken by us In con
sidtratl n of what we esteemed a p.oosr
regard for the dignity of the entire state,
my surprise is increased; when I be.hlnk
myself that the movement to stnd a team
originates n a ci.y, one of whose citUens
was debarred the range and absolutely
attacked in his Integrity by the execu'.ve
c mmit ee of the New Jersey State Rifle
Association, I am amaz d."
"I saw Capt. Hope, of the Governor’s
Horse Guard, the organization that con
templates sending the team to Sea Girt,
when 'I was in Atlanta, a few days ago,"
said Col. Cann. "When he tod me what
his troop thought of doing I endeavored
to dissuade him, using arguments of
which he admitted the justice. His only
argument in reply was that the troop
desired to defend the carbine trophy that
it w n last year."
"1 pointed out to Capt. Hope that if his
team went to Sea Girt one of two things
would happen. Either the New Jersey
team would make no effort to win the
Hilton trophy, saying they were willing
Georgia should have It. and the victory,
If won, would be a barron one, or else
they would draw into their team marks
men from anywhere and everywhere,
whether they were members of the New
Jersey National Guard or not. That they
would do this in the future I am confi
dent. because of what I know them to
have done In the past. I also pointed out
lo Capt. Hope that to discredit the aetjon
of the Georgia team would be to aid the
association that hod not given us Justice
In discrediting the purpose of our protests
and the purity of our motives."
The article in the Journal says the At
lanta team has about decided to go to Sea
Girt, and that no attention will be paid
to the protest of the Savannah team. In
the team that shot for the Hilton trophy
Savannah was represented by eleven men
and Atlanta by one. Some Savannahlans
are mean enough to say that the animus
of the Atlanta project lies In the hope that
with Savannah out of it, Atlanta will get
a larger number of men on the teem and
that to do this they are willing to dis
credit last year's Georgia team or any
body or anything else.
If In Atlanta It Is consider red unsports
manlike to refuse to abide a decision,
holding that there was no fraud, when
“that there was fraud there would seem
to be no room for doubt," the local rifle
shots think there must be o code of
sporting ethics Issued exclusively and cir
culated entirely In that enterprising city.

Case of Dr. Read A grain at City and
Suburban Close* To-day.
The case of Dr. James B. Read against
the City and Suburban Railway Company
was on trial in the City Court yesterday,
and the introduction of evidence on behalf
of both the plaintiff and defendant con
tinued throughout the morning and after
noon sessions of the court.
The evidence introduced was exceedingly
contradictory, the witnesses for the same
side disputing the statements of each
other. For the plaintiff It was testified
by several witnesses that neither the mo
torman nor conductor of the car that had
been stopped by the drooping wire made
any effort to warn Dr. Read or his driver
of the impending danger, whle for the
defendant it was testified with equal cer
tainty, that ample and complete and
ilmely warning had been given, to which
Lloyd, the driver, had paid absolutely no
The plaintiff contends that unless such
warning was given no negligence can be
Imputed either to him or his driver, and
that full blame for the resulting acc.dent
must fall upon the railway. The ra.lw'ay
■ompany, however, cannot be Induced to
take this view of the situation, and con
tends that even without warning given to
Dr. Read or the driver the accident could
not have happened, if the occupants o
he trap had taken ordinary and reason
able precautions for their own safety.
The Interrogatories of experts in the
construct on of electrical reads and over
head trolley system© were read to the
jury in behalf of the company. This ev
idence was to the effect that the system

be made and the charge of the court de
tivered this morning. It is probable that
both Mr. O’Connor and Mr. Hartridge
will speak for the plaintiff, while Mr. Os

Cruel Treatment of Animal* on the
Bull Street Dock.
The surroundings at the w'harf foot of
Bull street presented anything but an at
tractive sight yesterday afternoon, a short
time after ten calves shipped from Bluff
ton had been dragged onto the wharf.
The head of a society for the prevention
of cruelty to animals would have had his
hands full for a time, at least.
Nine of the animals, w'hich were ship
ped on the steamer Doretta for a Savan
nah butcher, were strung to a post by
small ropes not long enough to allow
them to lie down without tightening the
rope and choking them. These were able
to w’aik after being released on the bo.it,
but some two or three fell from exhaus
.ion after being tied ashore. The tenth
animal could not stand when
released on the boat, and af
ter resorting to many forms of
excoriation, the men dragged it by <th©
ears ashore, wh re it fell, and was loft
