After another musical interlude, the con
gregation joining in singing, “What a
Friend We Have In Jesus.” Dr. Schaef
fer made a brief review of the history of
the movement that finally resulted in the
erection of the church. He repeated this
sketch, ho said, because only a few of the
congregation v/ere familiar with its facts.
Four or five years ago, through the ef
forts of Mr. Smallwood, a resident of the
island, the children were gathered each
Sunday afternoon under the shade of a
tree and taught Sunday School lessons.
The class grew rapidly and it was blit a
ehort time when the branches of the tree
■were no longer large enough to shelter
all of the Sunday gathering, so the meet
ings were adjourned to the pavilion, and,
later, met at the houses of the different
residents of the island. It was then that
the matter of a Sunday School room or
church was first thought of and active
■work was immediately begun by two
young ladies then residents of the island.
Their efforts were further supplemented
by a circle of young ladies known as the
Mission Circle, who had added themselves
for the purpose of aiding in the work. So
successful were their efforts that they
raised over S6OO. Dr. Schaeffer also spoke
admiringly of the many gentlemen of Sa
vannah who had contributed liberally to
the work, both with material and money.
The congregation was to be congratulated,
he said, on the fact that the church at
its dedication was entirely paid for.
At the conclusion of the address the reg
ular consecration service was read, each
of the four ministers taking part. This
was closed by a prayer offered by Rev.
The offertory, “Not Every One That
Baith Unto Me,” Qchnecker. was sung by
Mrs. Mize. Scripture lessons followed by
Rev. Mr. Cook and Rev. Mr. Nisbet. Rev.
Dr. Jordon preached the dedicatory ser
mon. taking as his text 2 Peter, 1;5, 6,7:
“And besides thih, giving all diligence, add
to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowl
The services lasted about an hour and
a half, and at the conclusion the ministers
and singers, together with a number of
others we re most hospitably entertained by
Mr. and Mrs. Adam Kessel.
Many of thQse who took part in the cere
monies of the dedication feturned to
Thunderbolt on a naphtha launch that was
placed at their disposal, but others wait

city that way.

The whole police department was noti
fied shortly after the occurrence and no
pains have been spared to capture the doc

captures, at least of the right persons,
will be effected, as the men have had am
ple time to leave the city.

the assault was made. It Is likely that it

Mr. Charles E. Marmelatein had a cata
leptic stroke early yesterday morning, and
he is now ill at his home. No. 112 Ogle
thorpe avenue, west. The stroke came at
about 4:03 o’clock as he was passing in
front of the De Soto. A gentleman saw
him fall and secured aid for him from the
De Soto. The night clerk came out with
a cot and two of the bellboys, and the
young man wan taken into the hotel.
Mr. Marmclstein lay so rigid that It
was supposed at first that he was dead.
Dr. Boyd was summoned, and soon the
young man was partially restored. His
father was summoned also, and everything
possible was done. At about noon Mr.
Marmeletein had recovered sufficiently to
admit of his being removed to his home.

DIG OIT WITH CHISELS.
Conntry Negro Had a Knife Blade
Imlteddrd In Hi. Skull.
A strange and unusual case was
brought to the attention of a Savannah
physician Saturday, one which Is rarely
paralleled In the experience of practition
ers of surgery. The patient was a negro,
who had a knife blade imbedded firmly in
The negro, whose name is Henry Oliver,
is a resident of Screven county, and had
received the knife wound in a quarrel
with another of his race, that took place
near his home. The knife blade broke
close to the handle from the force of the
blow and remained In Oliver's skull, an
unpleasant reminder and souvenir of the
difficulty. Two or three physicians in
Screven county attempted to remove the
blade, but it had entered the skull with
great force, offered little or no surface up
on which leverage could he applied and
stubbornly resisted all their efforts.
Efforts of a similar character were made
by the Savannah physician to whom Oli
ver was brought, with like unsuccess.
Seeing that some other plan must be re
sorted to, the physician had Oliver re
moved to the Georgia Infirmary, where,
on yesterday, he was placed under the in
fluence of an anaesthetic and the knife
The operation had to be performed with
chisels and a mallet, the blade being lit
erally dug out of the skull. The physician
says the operation was simple enough,
when proper Instruments could be used
under proper conditions, but the case is
nevertheless a strange one. The operation
was entirely successful and Oliver will be
able shortly to return to his home.
COLUMBUS TO SKIV'D A TEAM.
Guard. Prepnrlng for the September
Columbus is preparing to send a crack
team to the state shoot here in Septem
ber. A Columbus dispatch says the
Guards will have a fine new range soon,
and will begin to practice and to pick out
a strong team.
A good deal of Interest Is being taken
throughout the state in the shoot, and the
military shots are getting themselves in
trim for it.
It is hardly probable that the Macon
Battalion will send a rifle team to Sa
vannah to participate in the shoot, the
News says. In speaking of the matter a
Macon officer said: “It is not likely that
Macon will send a team to participate in
this shoot, for the reason that none of
the men in this battalion have practiced
at target shooting for a long time, and in
fact, we have no range. Of course there
ore a number of men in the Macon Bat
talion who have in past years proved
themselves very skillful In handling a
rifle, but by reason of the fact that they
are not in practice, they would not like
to take part in this proposed shoot. I
indorse the movement which the Savan
nah companies have started, however,
and think it would be a good thing if
these contests were held more frequently."
The Volunteers are considering the idea
oi establishing a range of their own. This
will very likely be done m the fall, but
hardly soon enough for the company to
send a team to Savannah.
HAVE BOATS AND A BUOY.
Safeguards for Bathers Have Been
Provided at Tybee.
Safeguards for bathers have been pro
vided at Tybee. The proprietors of the
hotel and the restaurant have placed two
boats on the beach, and a couple of ne
groes are kept by them In readiness to
render aid when necessary. This is a
provision that will be welcomed.
A buoy has also been anchored out be
yond the ropes. This will serve as a con
venient resting place for FWimmers. One's
strength might serve to reach the buoy,
where a rest could be had. The trip re
turning would be begun with the swimmer
as fresh as at the start.
The bathers yesterday afternoon were
glad to see that more care was exer
cised. The drowning of Agoos the Sun
day before showed the need of such pre
cautions, and, while no one ever seems
to believe he Is In any special danger,
there was yet a feeling that It would
be for the general good to have some
sort of a life-saving apparatus.
The hard rain interfered with the Tybee
crowd. Many passengers were carried
down on the 3:33 train, but the later
trains had very few. Scarcely fifty per
sons followed those who left on the first
train. The entire crowd of Sunday visit
ors numbered about l.nnfl. When the
weather is warm and not threatening. It
is usually the ease that Tybee attracts
about 1,500 Sunday visitors.

Savannah sweltered under a tempera
ture of 90 degrees yesterday from noon
until 3:30 o'clock. The gathering clouds
that preceded the exceptionally heavy

The rainfall amounted to .62 of an ineh.

“Why do the heathen rage and the peo

ing passage, Psalms, 2:1, was the text
chosen by Rev. Dr. John D. Jordan for
his sermon at the First Baptist Church
yesterday morning. The sermon was on

by the pastor, the text was peculiarly

people are imagining a vain thing,” de

dawn for the cause in China.
“China, the cradle of the human race,
sent a wave of population westward, and
in the march advanced ideas, improved

transformed the people. This wave has
passed around the earth and now strikes

missionaries always preach the gospel of
peace, and our Baptist missionaries, in

ATLANTA DEPOT IN SIGHT.
Dissolution of Partnership Believed
to Hold Problem’s Solution.
Atlanta seems to be nearer having anew
union depot than it has been since the
agitation on the subject; was started* The
rift in the clouds has been caused by the
annoucement of a meeting of the Special
Depot Commission of the State Legisla
ture, that will be held in Atlanta this
It is announced that the plan of the com
mission will be to dissolve the partnership
now existing between the state and the
Central, Georgia and Atlanta, and West
Point railroads, by wihch the present
passenger depot is controlled. The roads
contributed to the fund which went for the
construction of the building and for twen
ty years or more they have been enjoying
terminal facilities without the payment
of rent. With the dissolution of the part
nership, It would lie possible for the state
to deal with the railroads using the depot
as tenants and they would, therefore, he
required to defray their pro rata share of
the rent charges.
This view, at any rate, is that taken in
Atlanta and the Constitution prints a long
article, in w*hich it is elaborated. It is
said that the construction of the depot by
the state would be financially profitable,
and that, unhampered by partnerships, it
could be constructed without trouble. The
day for the meeting of the Depot Commis
sion has rot been announced with posi

strong probability that the meeting will be

PREACHED OS DOING GOOD.
Rev. Dr. Fair's Morning Sermon at
the Independent Chorrh.
At the Independent Presbyterian Church
yesterday rrtorning, Rev. Dr. Fair preach
ed upon the subject of "Doing Good.”
The text was Hebrews, 13:16: "But to do
good and to communicate forget not; for
with such sacrifice God Is well pleased.”
In his Introductory remarks he said
the century now hastening to its close is
the grandest In the history of the world,
its sunset the most glorious, though some
dark clouds, tinged with crimson hues of
blood, linger to mar its beauty. But,
like the closing of a stormy day, it pre
figures even a brighter and more illus
trious day to dawn.
"If the question were asked, 'What Is
the crowning glory of the age?’ different
answers would perhaps be given. Some
would point to its scientific advancement,
others to its military achievements; not a
few would dwell upon its inventions and
the comforts that have been added to life.
But while fully appreciating all these,
yet we may venture to advance the claim
that the noblest distinction of the age is
to be found In its philanthropic spirit and
practical charities; not in discovering
new stars, weighing them and assigning
their place in the cosmic system, but In
discovering the true value of man, esti
mating his real worth, cfevating him to
his proper place in creation; not In ex
ploring unknown continents, but in ex
ploring the wide, dreary wastes of human
sorrow; not Ir. applying steam and elec
tricity as motive power; but in awaken
ing the subtler and more useful currents
of sympathy, arousing Its latent energy,
directing it in channels of helpfulness,
in going down into the slums, lifting
up the fallen, building hospitals for
the sick. homes for the orphan,
the aged and poor—this is the noblest
distinction of the age, the brightest jewel
in Us crown.”
Dr. Fair claimed this practical philan
thropy was largely, if not entirely, the
effect of Christianity. The spirit of true
religion is to do good, to communicate not
simply of money, but of sympathy and
brotherly kindness. This was the spirit
of the Founder of Christianity, who went
about doing good.
The essence of religion is love to God"
and love to man, and Its one great object
i? to make the world holler and happier
and brighter. Dr. Fair urged upon his
hearers to cetch this high and disinter
ested ideal, and to be willing to pass un
der the law of self-sacrifice for othere.
He said many people go to a theater or
read e novel, their sympathies are touch
ed by a fictitious tragedy, perhaps a tear
is started, but they do not think of the
real tragedies that are being enacted
around them every day. The world Is
full, not of the woes of the mimic stage,
but the woes of real life, and the disciple
of Christ should address himself to the
practical helf of those, who are dis
couraged and crushed down beneath the
weight of their burden. The effect of
this would be not only to ameliorate the
condition of the world, but also to make
the Christian himself happier and to set
the bells of heaven to ringing in his
As an offertory, Mrs. Wickenberg sang:
"The Lord Is My Shepherd," and her tine
voice was scarcely ever heard to better

before leaving on his vacation.

ty of the Independent Church is making

heavals he might be in pecuniary straits,
and the ladies wish to send him a token

Chatham* May Have to Do Without
Their New Bnttery.
Georgia’s share of the government’s ap
propriation to the national guard will be
short $7,000 this year. Gov. Candler has
been notified that Georgia’s pro rata will
be $22,000. The Georgia appropriation was
expected to be $30,000. The Governor has
been Informed that the reason the entire
appropriation has not been divided out !s
because the War Department thought
best to reserve $200,000 to be used at an
A full apportionment would give the
state $29,000, or more than twice as much
as was ever received before. The appro
priation to the states for the maintenance
of the militia is not made in money, but
in equivalent values in uniforms, arms
or accoutrements. In this way the troops
of the various states supply themselves
with whatever they need. It was the in
tention of Gov. Candler, in case a full
appropriation was made to the state, to
present anew battery of four rapid-fire
to the Chatham Artillery. This
would cost about $16,000. With the total
appropriation $22,000, the Chathams will
have to go without new battery awhile
In order to uniform the troops of the
six regiments in the state. Gov. Candler
was compelled to draw on the government
appropriation for 1900 to the extent of

with the government only SII,OOO, and with
this nothing can be done in the way of
purchasing a complete battery for Sa
Gov. Candler is in communication with
the War Department relative to Geor
gia's share in the military fund, and It is
possible that he may obtain consent to
draw on the government to the full
amount of the appropriation to Georgia,
A plan is being considered. It Is said, by

The embezzlement case against George

up. It is said that negotiations are pend

against Witte, to which a prerequisite is
the payment to the Savannah Grocery
Company of a considerable portion of the
money which Witte Is charged with hav

There are other cases that were crowded
off the docket last week, and It may be

DILLON REMANDED TO JAIL.
Held for United States Grand Jury
tn Default of a $360 Bond.
George R. Dillon, the Sandersviile law
yer who Is charged with using the mails
in the furtherance of a scheme to de
fraud, has been held by United States
Commissioner Lewis for the action of the
grand jury of the next term of the United
’States District Court, and remanded to
jail in lieu of bond in the sum of S3OO.
The specific item with which Dillon
is charged is that of fraudulently obtain
ing law books to the value of $25 from the
Williams Law Book Company of Roches
ter, N. Y. This enterprise, in which he
was not successful, is supposed to be the
last upon which he embarked, and result
ed in his arrest a few days after the
books reached the express office at Ten
nille. Among the books he ordered from
the Williamson Law Book Company was
a full set of Greenleaf on Evidence, one
of the classics of the law.
Dillon says he believes he will be able
to give the required bond within the next
few days and, at his request, the commis
sioner has sent a blank bond to a friend
of the defendant in Sandersviile. Should
he not be able to give the bond he will
have to continue in jail until November,
before which month it i* not likely that
there will be a session of the United
State* Courts here.

LIFE IN THE PHILLIPINES.
A Savannah A’olonteer'a Experience
In Soldiering There.
Mr. Charles S. Bevans. musician of
Company G„ Forty-fourty Infantry, U.
S. V., who enlisted from this city and Is
now serving with his regiment In the
Philippines, has written to the Morning
News under date of May 30, giving a
dreary picture of the conditions and hard
ships of the American soldiers now In
the islands, and strongly advising Savan
nahiar.s not to enlist for service In that
One of the worst things obout soldier
ing, says Mr. Bevans, is the heat. It be
comes so awfully hot toward evening that
one can scarcely catch his breath. Then
the marches are so long end tiresome
that but few of the men are able to
keep up; so fearful Is the fatigue at times,
he says, that healthy and vigorous young
men fall from the ranks and lie by the
roadside, with their mouths open, gasping
for breath. Furthermore, after a hard
day's march as soon as a halt is called
the men are so worn out that they are
glad to sleep anywhere, and as often as
nc.t, from the nature of the country, have
no choice in the matter of where they
wIH lie down, but are forced to sleep. If
they sleep at all, in mud and water ankle
deep. Again, he says, on many of the
marches are encountered rivers that have
to be waded or swum and when such is
the case the soldiers In their wet clothes
are forced to continue their march under
a sweltering sun often for several hours
before a change can be effected.
Another fruitful source of sickness and
death is the water. "Often,” says the nar
rator, "I have seen soldiers drink greedily,
from a mud puddle in which the water
buffaloes had been wallowing." Another
hardship of th© soldier says Mr. Bevans
is the baggage and accoutrements that he
is forced to carry. These consist of can
teen, haversack, mess kit, gun, blanket,
poncho, one hundred and fifty rounds of
cartridges, and often five and six days’
rations. "This is what it means to sol
dier over here,” he says, "and still I have
not told half of the hardships; but I hope
I have told enough to convince my friends
that the Philippines are no place for an
American soldier, and I would advise
them, if they are In good health, to stay
at home, for I would not give a halt an
acre of Georgia soil for the whole of these
