BRUNSWICK. VS. SOLDIERS..
First of the Rail Games This After
Th* Brunswick and Tybee Post baseball
teams rill play to-day the first of the
I*o srames scheduled for to-day and to
morrow*. The Brunswick team is an un
usually strong--one, but :he Post nine has
beeni picked from two teams that have
been in constant practice 6ince the be
ginning of the senson, and there is no
doubt that It will give a good account of
It is the enrhest desire of the managers
of the games to make them as enjoyable,
a? possible, and to this end thty have had
the. ball grounds at Bolton street, where
the game will be played, put in much
better shape than it has been before dur
ing the present season; the grass and
weeds have been mowed, and the lines or
the diamond remarked.
It is expected that many ladies will be
v attendance, particularly as no admis
sion fee to the grounds wiil be charged
them. The grand stand has a roof on ,t.
and Its occupants will be protected from
passed and foul balls by a wire netting,
which extends sufficiently high to make
accidents from this source impossible.
The bringing of the Brunswick team
here is a venture on the part of a local
enthusiast of the national game, and upon
the attendance and support that is accord
ed him in the present series, will depend
the possibility of other games being ar
ranged for the remainder of the season.
Should the attendance at this and to-mor
row's game be sufficient to cover expenses,
it is likely that games will be arranged
with teams from both Jacksonville, and
Fernandina. from both of which cities of
fers have been made to come to Savan
The teams in this afternoon’s game will
line up as follows:
Post Team Brunswick.
Watson catch Ballantyne
Perneli or Dopson pitch Hollowed
Ragman first hose Villineau
McCresney second base Harper
Ivey third base Weiss
McDonough short stop Wolfe
Ghent left field Garrett
Jones center Held Kaphan
McKarrell right field ’.... Philips
Mr. John Downey will umpire.
COCORAX VXD FIERCE.
Another Boxing: Rout Will he Fulled
Off at the Theater.
Tommy Corcoran is to have another
fight. He is now In Charleston, but it is
expected that he will return to the city
within a few days and that a match will
be pulled off at the Theater. Arrange
ments for it have begun, and it is expevA
ed that it will one of the most in
teresting ever seen here.
Frank Pierce, the Louisville boy. who
wrote some time ago to see what could
be done In arranging a fight with Corco
ran. is expected here to-day or to-mor
row. All he wanted, he declared in his
letter, was a place to do a little train
ing, and that will be provided him by a
lover of the fistic art, who liked the tone
of his communication and was anxious to
arrange something clever in the fighting
From what is said of Pierce, it is be
lieved he is in good form and that he will
be able to give Corcoran all he will want
in taking care of himself. Both men are
in the pink of condition, and no time will
be lost in training. Pierce fought a pre
liminary on July 23 at Louisville, and
there is no question about his being fit for
another go. Corcoran is always in form.
The few who know that the match has
been arranged are looking forward to it
with a great deal of pleasure. They be
lieve there will be no difficulty in the mat
ter of getting a crowd to see the fight, as
everybody knows what Corcoran will put
up in the way of a scrap. It is not
thought that the warm weather will keep
the crowd away.
THREE EX-OFFICIO Jl STICKS.
Ufvnn*, Mendel anil C leary Recom
mended for lle-a p poi n t men t.
The grand jury of the Superior Court
recommended yesterday the reappointment
of three notaries public and ex-officio jus
tices of the peace whose terms have ex
pired or are about to expire.
Justice G. E. Bevans of the First Dis
trict will have served his full four-years’
term next Wednesday, when his commis
sion will expire. He was recommended
Justice W. H. Mendel of the Sixth Dis
trict. who has served twelve years in that
district, was also recommended for reap
pointment. Justice Mendel’s term has ex
pired and he is holding over under this
W. H. Cleary of the Seventh District
was the third justice recommended
to succeed himself. There is a vacancy
in the Eighth District which has not yet
been filled. Justice Van R. Winkler's com
mission expired last February. No appli
cation for his reappointment has been
made and he is holding over. The other
ex-officio justices in the Second. Third,
fourth and Fifth Districts have some
time yet to serve. All of the appointments
recommended yesterday were for four
W ILL MAKE TENEMENTS.
Work on the Hospital Building* Will
will be commenced in about a
wrek on the army hospital buildings re
cently bought from the government • by
Mr. Carlton C. Champion. It is expect
ed that three or four months will be re
quired for the completion of the changes
that are contemplated.
Mr. Champion proposes to convert the
buildings into small tenements. Some time
ago he bought a portion of the tract upon
w bich the buildings stand. Those that
arc not within the limits of the portion
he owns will be moved. There w’ill be
a general change in the arrangement of
r hc buildings, and partitions will be built
in them to divide them Into dwelling
houses of such size as would be demand
by tenants of moderate means.
The buildings are of such great extent
? ha: they will furnish dwelling space for
TTla ny persons. Quite a large community
"ill be established on the hospital site if
Champion’s venture proves successful
nnd all the houses are filled.

SUING THE STREET RAILWAY*
Timborlake Claims to Have Suffered
From Its Negligence.
The City Court jury retired to Its room
at 8:30 o’clock last night with the evi
dence in the case of John Timberlake
against the Savannah, Thunderbolt and
Isle of Hope Railway in its possession and
with instructions to return a sealed ver
dict, if it found it possible to agree.
The case was on trial all of yesterday.
Timberlake sued the company for $2,500
damages for personal injuries incurred by
him in a fall from a street car, which
he clairmd resulted from the gross negli
gence and carelessness of the employes of
the company. His contention was that
while he was endeavoring to get off the
car on Sept. 4, 1899, which had been slow
ed down at his instance, at the corner of
Broughton and East Broad streets, the
c'ar was violently started forward by the
motormun and he was thrown to the
His head was cut open to the scalp in
two places and from these injuries and
others he was confined to his bed for a
period of three weeks. He wants compen
sation for his pain and suffering, for
the expense to which he has been put,
and for the loss incurred by reason of his
absence from his employment and puni
tive damages, to deter the company from
being so careless in future of the safely
o: its passengers.
The company contended that the facts
of the case were that Timberlake had
been drinking, and that when he reached
the point at which he wished to alight,
he attempted to jump off the car without
signalling or requesting the conductor to
stop. Furthermore, he jumped off back
wards. and the result was that his head
came in contact with the pavement in
stead of his feet.
Evidence in support of both contentions
was introduced on yesterday, the witness
es being examined by Judge H. D. D.
Twiggs, -for the plaintiff, and by Mr. W.
W. Oelxirne, for the defendant. Judge
Twiggs and Mr. F. M. Oliver made the
arguments fyiv the plaintiff, while Mr.
Osborne presetted to the jury the theo
ries of law, and fact upon which the de
fense relied. The jury probably came to
some conclusion during the night.
FOUND FOR THE PLAINTIFFS.
Bnt Armitage & Sliarpe Were Not
Given All That They Claimed.
The sealed verdict rendered by the jury
on Wednesday night in the case of Armi
tnge & Sharpe against Dr. S. A. White,
war opened In the City Court yesterday
morning. The verdict found for the plain
tiffs In .the sum of $1,358.58, with Interest
from January 22, 1900.
The suit was for considerably more
than the amount of the verdict, and of the
amount for which suit was brought the
defendant admitted an Indebtedness of
$941. There were many questions in dis
pute as to delays ill the construction of
the houses which formed the basis of the
action, the plaimiffs attributing the de
lays to the defendant, ond the defendant,
in his turn, ascribing them solely to the
dilatory tactics of the plaintiffs.
The jury evidently came to the conclu
sion that neither party to the suit was en
tirely without fault and sought to distri
bute the blame for the delays and the re
sulting loss equitably and Justly between

THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1900.
THE SHIP ASTORIA.
% Filot Taken hpne With Col.
Editor of the Morning News: I wish to
emphatically contradict certain statements
of Col. J. H. Averlll. which appear in an
editorial in the Charleston News and
Courier of Monday, in reference to the
waterlogged ship Astoria, which was
picked up at sea, but could not bo taken
across Charleston bar, and was brought
to Port Royal for a harbor. Oui* Citizens'
Committee made a mistake in saying that
the Astoria drew 26 feet 10 inches. The
•News and Courier copied this. It should
have been 30 feet, lie (Averill) says the
ship grounded on the Port Royal bar. and
that she laid ashore two days and was
pulled over the bar and through the *and
by tugs. Now ,the statement is false. When
the Astoria crossed Port Royal bar she
was drawing 30 feet of water. The cap
tain of the tug Confidence, James lgo of
Charleston, told me the ship was drawing
26 feet of water, and when I got to the sea
buoy, before she ever got to the bar, the
ship stopped in 30 feet of water, and this
the captains of the tugs Confidence and
llercules can’t deny. The Astoria floated
on the next tide, and the tugs towed her
over the bar without touching bottom. I
piloted the Asoria over the bar and up to
Johnson river, and did not stop at Bay
Point to lighten the ship.
Col. Averill states that ships drawing 25
feet 6 inches were compelled to take two
tides to go to sea from Port Royal. Why
did he not state the truth? Port Royal Is
eighteen miles from the bar, and when it
is high water at Tort Royal it is one and
a half hour ebb tide on the bar. As it
takes about one and a half hours to get
to the bar. that would place a ship at the
bar at half ebb tide. Any seafaring man
knows that deep-draft ships never cross a
bar at ebb tide.
The monitor Amphitrite did not go
ashore at Port Royal bar. but on North
Breakers, and had no pilot on board. A
tramp steamer went over the bar on the
same tide drawing 25 feet of water. Now,
that he Is grinding his ax in Charleston
and paying the same attention to securing
comfortable snaps for self and family as
he did when he had the pull down here, he
finds it profitable to forget the past. Per
haps he forgets the speech he made at the
Sea Island Hotel before citizens of Beau
fort and Port Royal at the time of his
appointment as receiver of the Port Royal
Railroad, when he spoke about Port Royal
having the finest bar and harbor on the
South Atlantic coast, and how he would
do all in his power to get steamships to
come to this port. How soon he has
changed his views!
Perhaps he has also forgotten how\ on
the day the Indiana was docked and the
town w r as crowded w r ith strangers, he ian
a fence and put a gate the public free
landing of the town, and made each one
pay 25 cents to go through to reach the
steamer which was to take them down to
witness the docking of the Indiana.which
he has so much to say about. Is it not
a fact that he was paying more attention
to the gate money than to the docking of
a battlship? Perhaps,also.Col. John Henry
Averill has forgotten—well we’ll keep this
perhaps for our next load.

A Case of Hygiene and Comfort vs.
Fashion and Agony.
Brunswick. Ga., July 25. 1900.—Editor Sa
vannah Morning News, Savannah. Ga.:
Fo-r the pure and simple reason that I de
sire to give vent to my feelings for hu
manity and thank you for the interest
your worthy paper takes in publishing ar
ticles relative to “anti- coat” clubs, I
write you these lines.
The success of this reform movement
only depends upon a victory of hygiene
and comfort vs. fashion and agony; and
as the defendant’s testimony is only back
ed by false pride and superstition, it is
only needful to demonstrate that we are
earnest and sincere about this matter, and
that it is not to attract attention and de
viate from morals or etiquette that we ap
pear before the public in comon sense cos
tumes, but for the sake of comfort and hu
manity. Very respectfully,
T. W. Causey.

Yacht Huce at Beaufort.
Beaufort, S. C., July 26.—The third re
gatta of the season in these waters came
off yesterday afternoon. Four yachts
only, as follows, were entered, the Ray
mond of Pori Royal and the Julia. Ber
tha and Alice of Beaufort. When the
start was made, at 2 o’clock p. m., the
wind was northwest and the yachts had
to tack as far as the naval station, but
In the home stretch a % stiff quartering
breeze enabled them each to show their

former races, the Raymond outclassed
Ihe others, and when she arrived at the
starting point the other three boats could
hardly be distinguished in the distance.

Beaufort, S. C.. July 26.—Miss Maggie
Harms, 16 years old, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas Harms, of this place, died
here of congestion of the brain at 3
o’clock this morning. The young lady’s
death is a peculiarly sad one. She had
only recently returned to her home from
Charleston, where she has been attend
ing school and gaining honors that her
fond parents and many friends here were
proud of. The death of this bright young
Christian has occasioned profound regret
throughout this community.

NEGRO’S HORRIBLE DEED.
B< at and Scalded Hi* Child—Other
Dnwion New* Note*.
Dawson. Ga., July 26.—A negro, Andrew
Bowden, from the southeastern portion of
this county, was lodged in the Dawson
jail recently for unmercifully whipping his
10-year-old daughter, and afterwards pour
ing scalding water on her bleeding and
lacerated body in order to cVeote the im
pression that the child had scalded her
self accidentally. It is not thought that
the victim will recover from the injuries
The Dawson Crate and Box Factory has
employed nearly 200 hands regularly since
April, and ihc pay roll has exceeded SI,OOO
a week. This enterprise, perhaps, means
more to the city than any other in It, the
results are appreciably felt by our mer
chants who are sorry to note that the
peach season is almost over.
The Dawson fruit growers are now en
gaged in shipping pears to the Northern
and Western markets, and ate receiving
fairly good returns. For several years
this crop lias been considered a failure,
owing to the fact that the market was too
easily flooded, the crops being large and
the receipts barely enough to defray ship
ping expenses. Pears are now shipped in
barrels and bring from $2 to $4
The capers of a pigeon which was caught
in the hands on the dial of tlie city clock
Monday afternoon attracted the attention
of a large crowd of curious observers. The
bird struggled to free itself from its en
tanglement, but not until the big hammers
struck the bells on the inside did it suc
ceed in exerting enough strength to free
itself from the hands of the clo-uk.
The cotton crop is in very fine condition
and the prediction of those who know is
that the number of bales marketed will
exceed those of any past season.
A great deal of speculation has been
caused among Dawsonites recently on ac
count of two surveys which have been
made by the Central of Georgia Railway
between Arlington, in the southwestern
portion of Calhoun county and this fvfint.
The surveying tquad of the second line
is now ni work within a few miles of the
city. No one has yet been able to deter
mine the object of either survey, and the
outcome- is being watched with much in
terest. It is thought by some that these
surveys are nothing more than a bluff on
the part of the Central to keep the Geor
gia Hue Railway from making Dawson
its northern terminus.
PUTNAM RIFLES VOLI N PEER.
Willing to Go to thinn-Mamlinl
Who Need* n Bodyguard.
Eaton ton. Ga., July 26.—The services of
the Putnam Rllles have been tendered
the government in the event of war with
China. The tender was made yesterday
by Capt. D. S. Thomas to Col. Thomaton
of the Third Georgia Regiment.
An amusing Incident was the outcome
of the vote taken on this question by the
company here. It is well known that
Col. Thomason offered the services of the
regiment and then wired the different
companies to know how many would vol
unteer. The Putnam Rifles was the la it
company in the regiment to act on the
question, and when the question was put
there were but five men who were blood
thirsty enough to volunteer. After this
action the meeting adjourned sine die.
The boys, however, were the brunt of eo
much oanter from the people when their
action became known, that a reconsid
eration of the matter was had with the
result stated. Thus the whole of the
Third Regiment has volunteered for set
vice in China, when there is little likeli
hood of war, and there Is little probabil
ity of its being called upon should wir
A few days ago City Marshal Sanford’s
revolver was stolen from him. On Sat
urday night a negro was trying to sell a
revolver to one of the merchants, who
recognized the piece and sent for the
marshal to identify it. Sanford, being
on duty the latter half of the night, had
retired to rest, and ns the night was sul
try. had made hit? bed in the band stand
in thq park. He was aroused, and while
he was engaged in recovering the stolen
pistol, some miscreant gathered the bed
clothes from the band stand and took
them off. And now Marshal Sanford's
friends are thinking of petitioning the
Council to give him a body guard.
