Fifty short staple bales and twen ty long stable bales a day, besides the fine grist mill work will be to the capacity of the works. It Is the finest ginnery in that section. Cotton Is expect ed to come In within ten or twelve days. They Have Mode Money. Calhoun peach growers, who have been shipping regularly in the past few weeks, have made money. This money will go away down in their pockets, as it has been a Jong time since these fruit grow ers have had so much "long green." Strawberry culture has been a dismal failure there. The cost of cultivation and picking eats up the profits. And no ot tentlon will be given to the growing of this fruit hereafter. Brained With a Mattock. News has just reached Cummings of the killing Tuesday evening of Sol Crane by Andrew Bryant, near the line of Forsyth and Dewson counties. Bryant and Crane, with others, were working the road, when a dispute arose between them, and Bry ant brained Crane with a mattock. Crane lived about two hours after being hit.

Mr. Beach entered the ser vice: in 18 5, served two years as a patrol man, three y.ars a< chief lieutenant, and in 1890 was elected chi f. in which ca -1 aeity he has continually served up to the present time. In all the coming and going of political factions, he has all times been retained as the h ad of the police department, ami has served under the administrate ns of Mayor Dunn. Cro vatt, Cobon, Johnson, Mason and Atkin f-n. During his long service he has en joyed in th fullest degree the confidence of each administration. Mr. Beach retires now on his own motion to accept the man agement of the Chattanooga Brewing Company's business In Brunswick. Lieut. who has been elected to succeed Chief Beach, is a faithful official and will do justice to the new honors. Commonwealth Drying I'p, T'nleds something wholly unexpected lJe\elope. Commonwealth Colony, in Mus cogee county, will soon be a thing of the past. The trying of the colony, which is an experiment in practical socialism, ii proceeding without any particular In cident, but steadily, and by the Novem ber term of Ihe Muscogee Superior Court lie affairs will probobly have been wound up for good. Pursuant to the order of the court, Mr. W. A. Ross, the receiver of the colony, has been engaged pi winding up the affairs of the enterprise as rapid ly as can be done, and has already filed a report of the assets, liabilities, etc., of the colony. In the petition filed In the Superior Court recently, when a receiver was asked for by Leon de Brabant, one of the members. It was stated that the lia bilities of the colony were $3,700 or $3,800. In the petition It was stated that the crop of 1899 had been almost a total failure, and that the membership had become very much discouraged, and that from forty five to fifty the members had dwindled In number to three. At a recent meet ing of the entire citizenship of the L.irts tlan Commonwealth, It tvne decided to have the affoirs of the colony wound up, •s the then small force on hand was In adequate to carry on the work begun by the full colony. “Pe-gleg" Williams Again, “Pegleg" Williams has been heard from again. He will leave Memphis short ]y for Atlanta to begin the work of get ting more negroes for transportation to the Delia during the fall. Despite the ob stacles which have been thrown In his way by the farmers of Georgia, and the sev eral suits which are pending against him, he predicts a large business this fall. While in Atlanta on the Fourth of July he distributed thousands of circulars to r.e --j gro excursionists- who were ihere from all j parts of the southeast. In these circulars j he sets out the advantages to the negro : laborer afforded by the Delta plantations. I He expects to have good returns from i these circulars.” It seems that ”Pegl3g” i is not satisfied with his experiences in ■ Middle Georgia. It will be remembered that he Induced some 2,500 negroes in Mor gan county to leave their homes and go to the Mississippi boiiom lands. He car ried away about 500 from Greene. They ; were still going from Greene and Put i nam and Morgan when he was arrested as an emigrant agent working without license and lodged in the county jail. A mob of angry and outraged farm ers and townspeople gathered in Madison and were about to do “Pegleg” bodily harm, when he agreed to withdraw from that section. Williams was found guilty by Judge John C. Heart. He appealed to •he Supreme Court of Georgia and that court sustained Judge Hart. His attor ney. Mr. James Davison, of Greensboro, carried the case to the United States Su preme Court. The outcome of this case will be watched with interest, as ii great ly affects the farmers of Georgia. FLORIDA. R. T. Colding and W. R. Clark of Dade City, two of Pasco county’s best citizens, were drowned in Pearce lake while fish ing Monday. They were alone, and not ing is known as to how the accident oc curred. Their beat was found capsized. The bodies were recovered last night. Killed n Desperado. Sheriff H. C. Griffin and posse killed a negro desperado. Canny Clark, at day break Tuesday, near the turpentine camp of Allison & Gasque, n t far from Dade City. By chance the posse met the negro on the road. Clark immediately drew his revolver and attempted to shoot the sheriff. The posse riddled him with buck shot. At the Inquest the verdict was jus tifiable homicide. Seriously Stabbed. Charles Henderson, a young white man, was seriously stabbed by two white men at Roberts, Fla., Tuesday. Henderson was taken to Pensacola for medical attention. He was attacked by the two men at once ; and would have been murdered, but for interference on the part of the bystanders. The would-be murderer**, whose names are English and who are relatives, were also taken to Pensacola for safe keeping. Gored By Angry Ball. A sad accident befell one of the men en gaged in loading a cattle boat at Punta i Rassa on Saturday, and before the bars | could be put up, an angry bull turned on one of the boat hands, a Cuban, and gored him in a frightful manner, lac erating his thigh and arm, and also gor ing him through the stomach. A physi cian was sent post haste from Myers, and after doing all that could be done the boa* left for Key West. No hopes are entertained for the man’s life. Scooping In the Violator*. Tampa Herald: Fish Warden Ben Moody now has twenty-four fishermen bound over to the Criminal Court for violation of the closed season. The charge Is fish ing with nets other than cast nets. They have had preliminary trials at the most convenient point In each case, before Jus ices In Clearwater, Port Tampa Cby and Tampa. The bonds range from SSO to S2(M, and the appearance of these men will swell the liveliness of the next term of the Criminal Court. Too Many Criminal* Let Loo*e. Dunnellon Citizen: Last week was a not'd week for murders in this state. Out of the large number cf murdereis four or five were ex-convicts. We put our seal of condemnation on pardoning criminals and iurning them out of prison to go arid commit more murder until the Board of Pardons and guards are thoroughly con vinced that the prisoner has exchanged yokes with the devil, "is a n*w crea ture,” otherwise let him cr her serve his or her full sentence. Too many criminal* who have not had justice meted out to them are at large now. The Executive- Committee. Jacksonville Times-Unicn and Citizen: The rmeting cf the Democratic State Committee, held in this city yesterday, was in some respects a disappointment to those who had arvic pated ihat the cam paign machinery would be put in motion. Asa, r suit of two long sessions, a com mittee of nine was appointed to arrange the itinerary of campaign meetings through the state, a finance committee of live was named to have charge of ways and means for raising campaign funds, as well as to disburse such funds, and the meeting then adjourned, directing the ehaiiman to call the committee together again on Aug. 24. wh°n other business which was left yesterday uncomp’eted. will be taken up. The primary rules will go over to the next meeting. May Bo Another Strike. Tampa Timee: From all that the Times can gather a serious disturbance is threat ened in the cigar manufacturing industry. There hove been rumors current for aome time past that a big strike for higher prices is impending, and these rumors are constantly becoming more insistent and widespread. The cigarmakors ar* discussing the situation at frequent meet ings, and now it appears that the man ulacturers are becoming alarmed and are organizing for a fight. It is announced that the manufacturers will hold o meet ing to-night in the board of trade rooms to form an organization. It is stated that every manufacturer of any conse quence in the city will join this organi zation, and that they will sign an agree ment and give a bond which will insure that they will act in unison in case of a conflict. A l.nrßp Game Preserve. A large land deal has Just been closed at Tampa. The sale was of 63,710 acres of. prairie land In Manat' e county, w hich li a in a solid bedy. and has forbears been the properiy of the Plant Investment Company. The land was bought by Messrs. T. S., F. J.. E. C. and C. L. Knight, all of Charlotte Harbor, and they will enclose the land for a game pre serve. which will be the largest in the state. The tract, in addition to a little the purchasers already owned ihere, com prise* thr e s IUI townshlrs It i* so watered and wooded as to make it an Ideal game pr serve. The n w owners will devote their energies toward making this p’oee cn that will be well worth owning. All of the gentlemen arc sportsmen, and they do not like to s c he game disap pear so rapidly as it has, so they have determined to have a place where they can do as they please and keep the pot hunters cut.

Itl-ft l)OW\ BY AN IXKXOWM. Ci*pi. Clark of the Scholl tnable to Discern Ihe .lame of the Stranger. The Scholl Suffered Considerable Dnmnfte — Tng L. Luckenback to Go Around the Horu, From \>w York to ’Frisco—Matter* f Interest to Shippers and Mariners. Capt. A. W. Clark of the schooner Chas. K. tSchull, which arrived yesterday light from New York, reports that he was run down by an unknown loaded schooner ap parently bound North, forty miles off Hog Island light, bearing W. by S. The col lision was about 12:30 a. m. on the night of July 25.* After .the accident the Schull wore around on the port tack until day light, and seeing nothing of the other ves sel, proceeded on her voyage South. Describing the vessel which ran the Schull down, Capt. Clark said she was a loaded three-master, and was apparently bound North. He does not know whether the watch on the stranger saw the Schull, notwithstanding the proper lights were displayed on Che latter vessel. The damage to the Schull as a result of the collision was the carrying away of a lifeboat end starboard davit, part of taffrail, and patent log and its gear. Af ter the clash Capt. Clark hauled down jib and flying Jib, and bore to on the starboard tack for an hour, then wore around on port tack until morning, but without finding the name of the vessel that collided with the Schull. Around the Horn to ’Frisco in fifty-five days Is the programme mapped out for a New York harbor tug. She is the L. Luckenback, and, if nothing happened, has already begun her long voyage. Capt. McKay, her commander, arrived in New York a few days ago from California, and is reputed to be an expert navigator of Southern seas. J. D. Spreckels & Cos. of San Francisco recently bought the L. Luckenback from her New' York owner, Lewis Luckenback. In future the little vessel will be used in the water* of the Golden Gate. Such a long trip as this one is no ordi nary venture for a tug, although it has been made before. The risk is enormous, even for an “ocean goer” like the L. Luck enback, and it has required all possible ingenuity to get a crew for her. Fifteen men, however, were finally signed, the last one yesterday afternoon. As far as could be learned from various towboat owners, only three or four tugs have ever made this trip. The best record up to date is that of the G. W. Pride, which went around eight years ago in sixty-three days. Between 1890 and 1899 two other tugs accomplished the feat, both of them taking a great while, and having many mishaps. At present the United States government tug Slocum is on her way to the Pacific coast, and little un easiness is felt for her. as she is one or the largest and most seaworthy boats of her class. The L. Luckenback is 135 feet long, and has a gross tonnage of 260. Her former owner says she can reach ’FriscV> in fifty five days. The schooners Jennie Thomas and Isaac N. Kerlin arrived yesterday from Balti more with coal for D. H. Thomas & Son. Passengers by Steamship*. Passengers by steamship Kansas City, for New York, yesterday—P. W. Carswell and wife, G. M.

Jacksonville, Fla., Aug. 2.—Justice Wil lard was summoned to McCollum’s tur pentine camp, seven miles southwest of the city to-day, to hold an inquest on the body of Arry Golden, a negress, who died their suddenly, it is said, from blows in flicted by her husband. In her dying mo ment she told of how he had come into her room, and finding her lying on the bed, took up a heovy lightwood knot and struck her three heavy blows on the ab domen with it, causing her frightful pain. She died soon afterwards. The negroes there were greatly incensed against her husband and caught him and tied him tightly till an officer went out end arrest ed him. The wife stated that if she died her husband would be responsible. There Is much talk over the legal pro ceedings being taken to remove Counci’.- men Bethel and Puckhaber. Some days ago Judge Young applied for a writ of quo w’arranto for the purpose of removing them on the ground that they were ap pointed by the Council, when the charter provides that the bond trustees shall ap point all officers not elected by the people. As both these officials were appointed to fill vacancies by the Council, it was con tended that they had no legal right to their present seats. Behind this was a move, so it was stated, to have the recent notion of the Council in giving street rail way franchises to the Plant System de clared illegal on account of these aldermen holding their seats illegally, and J. M. Barrs, city attorney, has been given credit for being behind the move. To-day he had a card in the Metropolis stating that while he knew some of Judge Young’s clients, whom he declared were among the leading buisness men here, etc., he had no hand personally in the matter. He thinks thaj the suit will stand, and that Bethel and Puckhaber will be declared r.ot to be en titled to their seats. Another interesting matter has ecme up in political rircles and that is the ques tion of J. M. Barrs, city attorney, hav ng a right to be appointed presidential elec tor while holding that office. The State Executive Ccmmittee referred the matter to a special committee to investigate. Mr. Barrs wrote to Senator Jon s of the National Committee, and the latter re plied that he did not think thar Mr. Bars was eligible. Mr. Jones statfd further that he did not think a srate senator should be appointed eithe-. As Mr. Hunt Harris, senator frem Monroe county, has been apTOirued an alternate, this effects him also. Mr. Barrs takes issue with Sen ator Jones and has written the Senator a long letter, endeavoring to convince the national leader that he (Barrs), can hod both offices. The Democrats here are waiting with inter st ra see if the elo quent city attorney can change Mr. J ties’ views. Waycross News \otes. Waycross, Ga.. Aug 2.—Mr. F. M.
