BEST season ever known. tibee HAll.road has carried great crowds to the island. The Average Daily Movement. Both Waya. Mn Been 1,7:55 During the aiontli* of May, Jane and July. Eaeh Month Showed an Increase Over the Business of Last Year. The Season Is Not Y r et Over—lt Is Probable That It AVIU Last Near ly a Mouth—Not L'ntil It Begins to Fall Off Considerably Will the Road Reduce the N'nmber of Trains. The Tybee Railroad has done the big gest passenger business this season in its history. The season on the island has been very successful, the visitors having gone done in crowds. Not only have Sa vannahians patronized the island in great numbers, but the business from the in terior cities has exceeded that of past seasons. If the season that is drawing lo a close may be taken as a criterion of those that are to follow, it is probable that the popularity of the resort will cause the business of the line to increase with every year. It is probable that there will be nearly e month of the Tybee season yet. The most popular portion of it, however, has passed. The railroad reports that its busi ness is falling off daily, but it is probable that it will continue heavy for two or three weeks. Not until the travel has fallen off considerably will there be any reductions made In the number of trains that run to and from the island. Last summer there was a storm alarm on the island. It was predicted that a storm-from the West Indies would sweep the coast, and on Aug. 12 many of those on Tybee took the warning and came to the city. There was no storm, at least it did not affect Tybee. Out at sea and along the coasts of the Middle Atlantic and New England states, however, it wrought havoc. The season did not amount to anything after that alarm. This summer there have been no storm predictions. It is hoped there will be none. That last summer caused a great deal of alarm, even though the blow did not strike Tybee or Savannah. The sea son has not been interfered with thus far by news of storms, and it is hoped that residents may be permitted to finish out the hot months without having to seek safety in the city. The ball nights will continue, twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, until the season is over. Last year the last ball was on Aug. 27. It is not yet known when Proprietor Graham will close his hotel, but that will have an effect upon the season. During the months of May, June and July the railroads hauled an average of 1.735 passengers daily. This was in both directions. The following table will illus trate the Increase in the business of this season over that of last. The numbers 6how the passengers hauled to the island during the months: 1599. 1900. Increase May 8,351 11,911 3 590 June 19,315 19,849 501 July 25,519 28,941 3,422 Total 53,215 60,701 7,485 When 60,701 is multiplied by 2, the num ber of passengers carried both ways is shown. When the product, 121,402, has 15 per cent, of it added to' it, the sum is 139.- 6i2, (he addition being made to represent the number of children that have ridden without belrg charg and fare. This number is not great enough, Superintendent Clement Saussy is convinced, but he gives it in order to keep upon the safe side. IV hen 139,612 is divided by 92, the number of days in the three months, the quotient is 1735, which represents the number of passengeis handled, on the average, daily. HUMAN CATTLE. Some Salty Observations of a Sick Man. Editor of the Morning News: The news papers—yes, that’s so—the newspapers have got America by the nose and the corporations, led by the railroads, have got'lt by-the tail, from the President to the plebeian, and are carrying it to—God knows where, for nobody else does. The one goal, the paradise, “the fields elysian," whatever that may mean, is gold. Get that and you can control everybody and everything from the present emperor of America to the peasant at the plow— from the Senate down to the saloon. The commercial spirit has seized the bit and is dashing straight at the chasm of moral ruin. ' And if the preac'her objects it takes btit a little time to ridicule him Into silence or starve him Into subjection. A Southern paper has set .the pace by cartooning a pastor who criticised the bad conduct of its favorite mayoralty candidate. The average editor has no trouble at all In giving theological Instructions by the column to the preacher, and such knotty problems as miracles, the incarnation, providence, etc., are disposed of as quic'k ly and irreverently as Voltaire's denial of the inspiration of the Bible. To the average reporter, every pious man is a Purilan, it being understood that a Puritan is an ignorant hypocrite; and every advocate of reform, especially in the matter of Intemperance, is a fa natic. One motto: “The news, all the news, nil the news every day,” seems to hang out the press door, and everything is told from the diplomatic performance of the nations to the putrid details of the Police Court. And when some “Puritan” or “fanatic" objects, he is gravely told that publishing the details of crime decreases crime, when, surely, if that had been true we would have had a paradise In America. Statisticians declare that the United Stales lead the world in murder, and that crimes of all kinds have vastly increased in the last decade. The saloon is known to be by all men n veritable hot bed of inspiration for ciimes of all kinds, and yet the press is as silent as the grave on the subject save to ridicule those who oppose tile saloon. Why did the Mayors of Huntsville and hew Oilcans close the saloons during the recent riots? Because they were chief factors of danger—the dynamic cen ters of anarchy. Recently a lengthy article appeared In • Georgia dally, which, after relating the old sophistries against prohibition, ended by declaring If the Legislature passed ■uch law the cities of Georgia would not ®'>*y it. I replied to one point only, viz: Liat the writer was advertising the liquor dealer ae an anarchist. The editor in formed me that the article was Inserted * n <l paid for as an advertisement. But It w as not so marked. 1 he glories of local option are extolled the great panacea for Intemperance, "'lien everybody knows that the principal ®f local option, when applied to ail mat ters of legislation and crime, and pressed ,0 its logical and equitable sequence, snc i j n anarchy pure and simple. Every man for hmlself and—” Gne fact alone will forever answer its claims. It deslroys the unit of legislation; hence the unity of law, and destroys both justice and equality. I remember distinctly when the press fought local option Just as It r.ow fights Prohlblton, and every step of progress 'ha* temperance legislation has mode has b'en In spite of newspaper opposition. If the press is lending this county It has nothing to boast of either in com tfierce, politics or morality. And the railroads? Yea, Sunday dese cration finds a ringleader in them. Train loads of old and young, white and black, good, bad—all sores—dumped in the cities and seaside resorts, open saloons, dance houses, brothels, feeding and fattening on them and creating streams of moral pol lution, lobbying in the Legislatures, de fying the law, robbing, corrupting, damn ing the ignorant masses. So tt is. But I suppose that any free people too ignorant and sordid to stop these things deserve no better. "Experience is a dear school, but fools will learn in no other.” All aboard! and here we go—where? Statesboro. Ga. J. A. Scarboro. THE COBURG SUCCESSION. How the Dnke of Alltnny Becomes the Duchies* Ruler. Ex-Attache, in New York Tribune. It was in the capacity of a music stand that I first made the acquaintance of Queen Victoria's second son, who has just died so suddenly, as reigning Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. He was on his way back from St. Petersburg, where he had Just become engaged to Czar Alex ander ll's only daughter, Marie, and had broken his journey for a few days at Vi enna, taking up his quarters at the Brit ish Embassy. Each night during his stay there was a dinner party, and after each dinner the Duke was asked to perform on the violin, his accompanist being in variably the lovely little Countess Don hoff, who, after a sensational elopement with her husband's secretairie d'Ambas sade and a divorce, is now married to the aforesaid secretary, at present Minister of Foreign Affairs of the German Em pire. I am sorry to say that the Em bassy furniture did not comprise such a thing as a music stand, and accordingly Lady Buchanan amiably suggested that as the joungest member of the party I should act in that capacity. Accordingly a chair was perched on a quantity of big folios and footstools, and I was estab lished in the chair, to hold the music book in a slanting position toward the Duke. My face appeared above the edge of the book, and I was consequently compelled to keep staring at the Duke, while every time that he raised his eyes from the notes he encountered my gaze. Perhaps he derived inspiration therefrom. At any rate, each evening that he was at the Embassy he played from the moment that dinner was over until the party broke up, and he laid the tired violin to rest in the ease, covered by the dainty sarin and lace apron worked for him by his Im perial fiancee. In that way the Duke be came as familiar with my features as be would with those of any other equally artistic piece of furniture, while his hand some face and magnificent eyes became firmly impressed upon my memory. It is only fair to add that the Duke before he left Vienna presented to me a charm ing souvenir in recognition, so he said, of my "intelligent appreciation of music,” and tha* this was the beginning of an ac quaintance marked by many an act of gracious kindness on his part. It is owing to the fact that the Duke of Connaught and his only son. Prince Arthur, waived their rights of succession to the throne of Saxe-Coburg that the young Duke of Albany, son of Prince Leo pold, who was the most delicate of all Queen Victoria's children, now sucdeed< as soverign duke of the two German duchies in question. In order to under stand how an English Prince, who is like wise a British peer, comes to succeed to the crown of one of the numerous inde pendent states of Central Europe compris ed in the federation known as the Ger man Empire, it is necessary to recall the fact that Queen Victoria's husband was the younger of the two sons of Duke nest I of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. The" elder of these two sons, Ernest 11, died a few years ago without issue, his crown, therefore, devolving on sons of his younger brother, Albert, Consort of Queen Vic toria. and who had preceded him. The English constitution will not permit a for eign crown to be held simultaneously with that of Great Britain, and the constitu tion of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha is likewise opposed to a foreign ruler becoming sov ereign of the two duchies. The heir ap parent of* the British chown can be titu lar sovereign of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha until he ascends the throne of Great Bri tain. but even in that case it Is stipulated by the Coburg constitution that he should appoint a viceroy or stadtholder to ad minister the sovereignty of the duchy, it being regarded as inadmissable that the heir apparent to a foreign throne should actually exercise the duties of rulership Of the duchy. In'order to avoid all these difficulties the Prince of Wales some time before the death of bis uncle. Duke Ernest of Saxe- Coburg, waived his own rights and those of his son and son’s sons to the throne of Saxe-Coburg. His abandonment was not absolute, but conditional. True, he renounced his own rights and those of his children, but only to the younger brothers and to their male descendants. In the event of their dying without issue, or without ascending the throne of Co burg and Gotha, the crown of these two duchies does not pass to the other mem bers of the house of Coburg, as has been s*ated, but reverts to the Prince of Wales, or rather to his son and grand sons. Thus, if by any misfortune the new Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha—that is to say, the Prince of Wales's nephew, now a delicate lad of sixteen—were to die be fore attaining his majority the Prince of Wales would become ipse facto reigning Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Go4ha, but as heir apparent to the English crown would be compelled to administer The sovereign ty of the two duchies through a viceroy, who might be his own son, the Duke of York. The Duke of York would, how ever, hove to give up the viceroyalty to some other prince on his becoming the Prince of Wales himself, while his father, on becoming King of England, would be obliged to surrender lo him the title of Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, as well as all the revenues of the duchy and the vast estates which go with the crown. A Kingdom Without u Court. The entire affair is somewhat compli cated, but it is necessary to bear it in mind, inasmuch as difficulties in connec tion with the Saxe-Coburg succession have already and are likely to occur again. The Coburgers entertain a vivid remembrance of the fate of the people of Hanover, who for more than eighty years were left without even a glimpse of their English ruler, who pocketed his revenues as King of Hanover, but neither main tained a court in the kingdom nor even visited it. Neither George 111 of Eng land, nor George IV, nor William IV. ever took the trouble to run over to see their kingdom of Hanover while on the throne of England, and it was not until Victoria became Queen of Great Britain and her uncle Ernest, by virtue of the Salic law in Hanover, became King of Hanover, that the worthy Hanoverians knew what it was to have a full-fledged court. . . . When the Prince of Males waived his rights to the throne of Coburg and Gotha he did so in favor of Ills second brother, Alfred the sailor Duke of Edinburgh, who oil the death of their Vncle Ernest, sue reeded to the throne of Coburg end Gotha. Duke Alfred had on only son hearing his name, who died a few days after the cel ebration of his parents' silver wedding. The necessity of selecting an heir to the ducal throne then became apparent, and Duke Alfred's younger brother. Arthur, Duke of Connaught, Queen Victoria's sol dier son, as next in line, was gazetted ns Crown Prince; but when the Duke of CASTOR IA For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought Bears the Sp Signature of THE MORNING MEWS: FRIDAY, AUGUST 3, 1900. Connaught discovered that it was expected that h© should transfer his abode from England to Germany and to 6ever his con nection with the British army, which he hopes one day to command in chief, and when he found, moreover, that he would be obliged to surrender his paternal rights to direct the education of his only boy and to intrust the lad to the guardianship of Duke Alfred and of Emperor William, he declined to accept the honor, and by a sol emn act of renunciation waived oil his claims and those of his son to the only son of his deceased younger brother, the Duke of Albany. To young Prince Leopold, a lad of 16. the prospect of succession came as a god send, for he was utterly without fortune and without any future before him. In deed, had he not stepped into the shoes of his self-slain tvmsin Alfred he would have grown up to be one of the most im poverished of the British royal family, a burden to himself, to his royal relatives and to the British taxpayers. The peo ple of Coburg agreed to his succession, but insisted bn special arrangements be ing mode for his guardianship and for the regency in the event of his accession dur ing his minority. According to the terms of these arrangements it is Duke Alfred’© son-in-law, the Prince of Hohenlohe-Lan genberg, son of the viceroy cf Alsace-Lor raine, who becomes regent of the duchies until the young Duke of Albany becomes of age. a couple of years hence, when he will find himself at the head of a small sovereignty, but In the possession of pri vate estates worth considerably over $500,- 000 a year. Eight months ago he was a penniless schoolboy at Eton, looked upon by the royal family in England in the light of a dependent and a poor relation; to-day, through the death of an uncle, through the suicide of a cousin and the withdrawal of another uncle and cousin, he finds himself a full-fledged reigning sovereign. A VISIT TO EMPRESS DOWAGER. One W ho Wan Present Telln of the Historic Event in the Chinese Court. Frank G. Carpenter, who is now In the East, sends to the Saturday Evening Post a long article about the Empress Dowager and China, his facts having been gathered only' a few days before the present trou bles broke out. Two years ago the Em press Dowager eet aside all precedents and received the ladles of the foreign le gations at Pekin. One who was present told Mr. Carpenter about it. Among other things she said: “Her Majesty was dressed in a pale yel low silk gown, beautifully embroidered with flowers and dragons of the same color. She wore the headdress commonly worn by elderly Chinese women, her hair being fastened in a knot at the back just below the c'rown, the front of the head and a part of the forehead being concealed by a silk band heavily embroidered with pearls of large size. “I was struck with Her Majesty’s youth ful appearance. She was 64. but she look ed ten years . younger. Her face was plump and free from wrinkles. She had a high forehead, elongated perhaps by the custom of the Chinese ladies of pulling out the hair ot the edge of the forehead with tweezers. She had a strong face and in youth must have been very' pretty'. During the audi ence she frequently smiled, and I could see no signs of that cruelty with which she has been charged. “Her Majesty made us welcome to the palace and to China. She said she was glad indeed to receive us as foreigners, and that we should be friendly with one another, for were we not ell of one fam ily? “The banquet was fine, being made up of many courses and consisting of both Chi nese and foreign dishes. “After the banquet the Empress Dow ager again met informally' with the ladies, drinking tea with each of them in turn, and in some cases throwing her arm about one and embracing her. “At this time she gave each lady a pres ent of a beautiful gold ring set with a pearl as big a© a marrowfat pea, three silk dresses from the royal looms and a set of two dozen combs. Throughout the whole audience she w as exceptionally’ gra cious, and her manners were as polite and affable and at the same time as dignified and ladylike as could be those of any Em press of Europe.” AGED LOVERS PART AT MORGUE. Ilnslmnd Seeks Money to Reelnim Wife From Potters* Field. From the New’ York Journal. With a look of patient sorrow on his stern old face, Nicholas Ginsberg, once a soldier of France, stood on the deck of a boat which takes paupers to the alms house and brings back their bodies to the morgue, his hand resting softly and lovingly on a rough pine trt>x in which rested the remains of all that he held dear —his wife. “Yes; she is gone,” he said, tears in his eyes. “I will soon follow her. I am resigned. We morched shoulder to shoul der for fifty years. You will not have to wait long, comrade!” It W'as the Franco-Prussian war which drove Ginsberg and his wife from their home end sent them to this country’, though then well along In life. They were French Alsatians. The man was a brave soldier, but when peace was restored he found that the map of Europe had been juggled by the Prussians and that his native land was a German possession. It w'as too much for his pride. He emigrat ed. An iron moulder by trade, he found work In this country, but they' cbuld save nothing. On April 21 they' had reached the end of their resources. There was no money for the rent. Starvation stared them in the face. It was the seventy-fifth birth day of each. “Come,” said the old soldier, “let us go to the poorhouse. We shall at least have each other’s company.” They found human hearts on Blackwell’s Island, these old lovers. Every day they were permitted to be together. It was only at night that they were separated. Last week the old woman was taken ill. She died in her husband’s arms. The hos pital authorities permitted him to watch by the coffin all lost night, and when it was brought to the city he was allowed to come. “I will go to my nephew, M. Hahn. In East Seventh street,” said the old soldier, “and will ask one final favor. He will grant it, I know'. It Is that my Hannah and I shall have decent burial, that he will save her from the potter’s field.” And bidding au revoir to the body at the morgue, he trudged down, through the rain, this soldier of France, to prefer his last request.

July 30.—Lying In a sewer trench to-d3y was an innocent looking stick of dynamite, left carelessly by some workman. Joseph Phelan, 14 years old, a brother of John Phelan, the I lawyer, came along idly and spied it. He had no idea it was anything more than it appeared to be—a harmless stick, which wasn’t wood and apparently was neither iron nor stone. It was just such a looking object as was calculated to arouse the curiosity of a small boy of an inquiring turn of mind. Joseph picked it up. weighed it in his hand, turned it over and over and fell to wondering. It wasn't a Roman candle. He remembered his last Fourth of Julv too well not to know that. Just what it i was Joseph didn’t know, and he was bound to find out if he didn’t get home to supper. He pulled out hie knife and tried to whittle it, hut the stick was too hard and it dulled the knife blade. He tried n lighted match, buit the etick wouldn’t burn. He thought of putting it on the trolley car tracks, but the nearest car line was four blocks away, end he couldn’t wait to walk that far. He looked around for a big stone, and when he found one he was happy. He laid the dynamite on the big stone and then with a smaller stone, he began to pound it. At the first blow there wus a terrific explosion. Windows were shel tered three blocks nway. Men came run ning, but all they saw’ at first wan great rent in the pavement and stones end earth scattered around. Then they saw’ n boy’s hat with the erow’n blown out. and finally a deep groan called the crowd to a telegraph pole a block away, where all that was left of rhe small boy had been hurled by the ex plosion. WAS Cl RED BY HOLY RELIC. Soldier Who Wns Paralyzed Mlrn cnlonsly Healed. From the New York Journal. John J. Murray, of Irvington, N. J., who became a paralytic at Camp Alger while In Company B, First New Jersey Volunteers, but who was subsequently cured by touching a relic of the Apostle Paul, in the monastery of the Passionist Fathers in Hoboken, w’ill be buried to il ly from hi> home. Murray's death was due to consumption. When Murray was stricken in camp 9 rgeon English and other doctors told n m he would never walk again. Five months ego a relative procured a cairiage and drove Murray to the monas tery. where he touched the relic. When Murray was driven back to his home he surprised °verybody by alight ing from the carriage and walking into the house unassisted. From that time until a few’ days ago. when he war obliged to take to his bed, he had the full us of his 1 mbs and was firm In his belief that *he relic had cured him. MATTERS \\ THOMASVILLE. Street Carnival to Re Held—Cotton Crop In Way Off. Thomasvillc, Ga., Aug. 2.—lt has been decided to hold a street carnival and races in tihs city next fall. The time is to fol low immediately the Waycross dates, which are Nov. 13, 14 and 15. It is said by those who should know that the cotton crop in this county will be 25 per cent, below an average crop and 50 per cent., below a good crop. The cause of the damage was too much rain. The corn crop is fairly good. Mrs. Mary Connally. aged 63 years, died at her home near Ocklockonee last Satur day. Mrs. 6. A. Smith died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Dollie S._ Deyerle, near Boston, recently. S. W. Mays, Jr., Dr. T. E. Blackshear and J. L. Avera are all building handsome homes on Dawson street. The elegant new residence of C. H. He hard, facing Paradise Park, is nearing completion. Elaborate building operations are pro reeding on the 300-acre tract of land on the Southern Boulevard, bought by Mr. Morse last winter. Mr. Morse is a brother-in law of Mark Hanna and a man of large means. I. F. Lamb Is building a large and at tractive dwelling on Jackson street, op posite the South Georgia College. The Tlfton, Thomasville and Gulf Rail road Is preparing to erect its |iasseng‘r depot and general offices in this city. The structure will be one of the most com plete of its kind in the state. BERRIEVS TAX RETURNS. County Moke* Good Showing—' Tip ton's Peach Shipments. Tifton, Ga., Aug. 2.—The consolidated tax returns for Berrien county, which have just been finished by Tax Receiver Allen Hester, show a total re> gain in taxable property returned for 1900 over 1*99 of $191,823, or nearly a quarter of a million dollars in one year. The returns for 1899 were $2,463,592, and for IW. $2,- 1 1'5’,4!8. The colored people of tha county return $46,558 for taxation, an increase over last year of $13,067. Only two of the f urtren distrets in the county show a declare, and I his is very Flight. Tre largest increase is in the Tifton district, which returns over one fourth the taxable i roperty of the county. This dlFtr.ct shows an imrcaj-o over D99 of $139,325, and has shown a heavy in crease every year for the past ten. The defaulters In the county droj ped from 98) in 1899 to 200 this year. (Tops In this section are an average ox c<pt cotton, which will not yield over half a crop, bring b-idly damaged by excessive rains. Peach shipments for this season are over with here, except a few express shipments. Tifton has shipped a total of about eighty carloads, Including those going by express. Estimates early in the season placed the crop at fifty carloads, but it far exceeded this. Groovers are not (‘omplalning at re turns as a whole, for good pricc\s were received for all fruit that reached the mar ket in saleable condition. The heavy and continued rains caused the fruit to rot pre maturely, and several carloads were lost en rout#* from this. Had it not been for the excessive rains our growers would have netted large sums, as their crops were very fine. But, notwithstanding that many lost half their crop after it shipped, returns from other shipments were sufficient to protect them from loss, and to even afford them a small profit.
