Surgeon \\ bite of the Marine Hot

ner off Situation in Tampa.
Beginning early tlti* morning every
train entering the city from South I* ior
ida was inspected by fitn officer of the
local health department, the purpose of
the inspection being to Iteep Dr. Brun
ner advised of the extent of the emigra
tion from the city where yellow fever is
aaid to be existent, and the character
of the passengers who are fleeing from
The decision to inspect northbound
trains on the Plant System, Seab>ard and
Soot hern, was reached by Health Officer
Brunner on yesterdtey, andf immediate
measures were taken to put his deter
mination into effective operation. Tha
railroads threw no obstacles in the way
of the proposed inspection, but on the
contrary, instructed the conductors of .
their trains to render the sanitary inspec
tors every practicable assistance.
No quarantine has be en declared, and
none will be declared ivnless there
material change in the situation. Dr.
Brunner stated that he did not believe j
a quarantine was necessary under present |
conditions, and that he certainly would j
not advise that a proclamation, declaring j
a quarantine against Tampa, be issued, j
tinless he was convinced that the fever
wae epidemic or likely soon to become so.
In the meantime, however, he is taking
all other precaution? in his power to pro- j
tect this city against the possibility of
Infection. The trains .are being inspect
ed as they enter the city, and the inspec
tors are under special instructions to per
form their duty with all possible thorough
ness and care, and to collect all the de
sired information they can poesibly ob
tain. Dr. Brunner has not found it nec
essary to increase his present office and
field force for the purpose of dealing with
the situation, finding the tnen already
under his charge, amply able to do what
ever is to be done.
The inspectors will ascertain the num
ber of iassengers aboard the trains who
arc from Tampa, thfir character and ap
parent station in life, the probabilities of
their exposure to infection in their na
tive city and other informal ion that will
assist the health officer in making up his
mind as to the proper course to pursue.
The baggage carried by the passengers
from Tampa will also be inspected and
bedclothes of every kind will have to un
dergo a severe and rigid scrutiny. In
scarcely anything else that a passenger
in at ail likely to carry with him may
the germs of disease be more easily con-
Nothing can or will be done
with these passengers from Tampa
until a quarantine lias been pro
claimed An effort will be made,
however, to keep some track of their
movements and. In case quarantine Is de
clared. not to permit their return to Sa
vannah. after they have passed through,
un II the danger period has elapsed.
The first train to Ire Inspected under this
order from the health officer was the Plant
System train reach here at
12:10 a. m., railroad time. The
Southern train, that rolled Into the
city an hour and a half later, was also
to an Inspection of the same
character. The Inspections will be con
tinued regularly on all trains entering the
city from Tampa or the south, until San
ger of infection from that point has passrd
or another system of protection is substi
tuted in their stead.
Dr. Brunner was asked If there had b*e-i
any change in the situation since the time
of his first statement to the Morning News,
that was printed yesterday.
"None,” he said. “I expect to receive
to-morrow at noon an expert opinion of
the character, extent and danger of the
yellow fever situation at Tampa, and un
til this is received 1 do not feel In a po
sition to say what measures of precaution
X shall adopt or urge upon the sanitary
board for the fuiure protection of the
city. Dr. J. Y. Porter, president of the
Florida State Board of Health, and Sur-
Ceon J. H. White, of the Marine Hos
pital service, are on their way to Tampa,
and Dr. White, when he reaches that
city and has had time and opportunity
to make his Inspection will advise me of
tbe condition he finds. He is an expert
in the discovery and treatment of yellow
fever, and I feel safe in relying upon the
Information he will give me. 1 shall be
guided largely by what he has to say."
Dr. White and Dr. Porter were both at
Key West when they received information
of the existence of yellow fever at Tam
pa. They sailed from Key West to Mi
ami and there took train for Palatka,
whence they left for the scene of the
yellow fever scare or epidemic l , whichever
It may turn out to be. They are expected
to reach Tampa early this morning, and
Dr. White has agreed to advise Dr. Brun
ner as soon as he can make up his opin
ion as to the facts.
The health officers of Augusta and
Brunswick communicated with Dr. Brun
ner by telephone on yesterday and stated
that these cities would await the deter
mination of Savannah in the matter of
quarantine and would not close their gales
to goods and passengers from Tampa un
til similar action had been taken here.
This Is a well-deserved recognition of the
Ability of the health department of this
city to cope with epidemic diseases, wher
ever they exist, and It has Inspired the
health officer with a determination to de
serve the trust, that Is, if possible, more
fixed and absolute than when he was sad
dled with the responsibility for the health
of his own city alone. It is understood that
Charleston Is in the same position ns
Brunswick and Augusta, and is likewise
awaiting the decision that Dr. Brunner
"It puts us on our mettle," said Dr.
Brunner, “and we certainly shall seek not
to declare or delay the Inauguration of
quarantine regulations Improperly.’’
"The disease Is clearly not yet epidemic
In Tampa,’’ he continued, "though 1 sur
mise that there are more cases than have
teen repotted. My experience leads roe
to the conclusion that it is about the
twenty-fifth case of yellow fever that is
discovered and Identified as the disease,
and I fear that there are something like
that many cases In Tampa to-day. My
advices from Dr. White will give me the
Should a quarantine proclamation be Is
sued and a force of Inspectors be needed.
Dr. Brunner states that there would be
no difficulty In getting them at short no
tice. Already there ore a number of ap
plications cn file in his office for such
positions, that were made on yesterday
after the announcement of the existence
of yellow fever In Tampa, made In the
Morning News. From these applications
and others that will he made a force of
Inspectors could be promptly selected and
organised But a very short space of time.
Dr. Brunner says, would be necessary to
make the quarantine thoroughly effective.

COMPANIES MADE MONEY.
! Table of Insnrance Receipt* nnil
Lflunfn at Savunnah R*celved.
The local fire underwriters received yes
terday the annual statement of receipts
and losses of the various companies rep
resented here for the year ending June 30.
| As usual, the statement shows that the
companies received more chan they lost.
The total receipts were $425.599 and the
T ais is apparently a comparitvely good
eho sing, but the agents claim that with
35 r*r cent, added for expenses that the
companies have lost money. As Savan
nah had but few tires of importance dur
ing t;he year it is difficult to see how the
eomrunles make up their total of $244,-
*Y.\2 basses for Savannah, unless they in
clude the loss of the oil niili refinery, !
which, is outside of the city limits.
The. largest receipts and the largest j
profks were by the Aetna of Connecti
cut. the Continental of New York, the
Fire Association of Philadelphia, the Ger
mania of New York, the Han
over of New York, the Hart
fiord of Connecticutt. the London

eylvania of Philadelphia, the Royal of >
Enjgland, the Southern Mutual of Athena,
the Western of Canada, the Westchester
of New York, and the W.lliamsburg, city
of New’ York.
The Southern Mutual had the largest
receipts. $43,777, with loss:® of $6B-18.
The Liverpool, London and Globe had
receipts of $21,164, with losses of $19,551.
Several companies had losses slightly in
excess of receipts, but the majority of the
companies appear to have made money.
33ATTINGS OF WIRE GRASS.
Mr. AV. E. Wimpy Doesn't Believe
the Georgia Grnn Would Serve.
Wire grass is used in Minnesota to make
mattings, wrapping twine, baskets and
stands. The Northwestern Grass Twine
Company is the name of a concern at
St. Paul, of which a long write-up appears
in the New’ York Sun.
Struck by the name of the grass and
reminded that Georgia has hundreds of
thousands of acres grown up with wire
grass, a representative of the Morning
News sought to discover with what suc
cess the prodvfcrts of the grass are man
ufactured and put on the market. It was
thought possible that some use, other than
feeding cattle, might be discovered for the
Georgia brand of the grass.
Mr. W. E. Wimpy was found, and his
judgment of the wire-grass products turn
ed out in St. Paul was discovered to be
such as would probably discourage any
one figuring upon establishing a similar
business in this state. He had tried the
matting and other stuff made from the
grass and was by no means well pleased
“It Is slnogriy no good,” said Mr. Wimpy.
“I put my money in the stuff and lost it.
I wouldn’t have any more of it if it were
given me. It wears out immediately.
Rushes and rattan seem to be the only
things that can be used satisfactorily for
making mattings. No, I do not believe
the Georgia' wire grass would be any
better for the purpose than that which is
used in Minnesota. You see, the grass
down here has a pith in it, and that is
w hat’s tjhe matter with that used in Min
TRANSFER, HAS BEEN MADE.
C. R. Mcßride Now Owns the Prop
erty at No. 15 Congress Street.
The formal transfer of the property. No.
15 Congress street, east, just opposite
Christ Church, has been made. The sale
was made by the surviving trustee of the
property to C. R. Mcßride, a merchant of
Miami, Ind. The consideration was $7,500,
$5,000 of which was borrowed from one of
the banks in the city.
It will be recalled that this property
was introduced into the campaign that
preceded the Democratic primary last
May. The c6aim was made that it was
used for gaming purposes, though owned
and let by one of the most ardent .sup
porters of the faction that had anti-gam
bling as it campaign cry. After the mat
ter was brought to the attention of the
owner, the occupants of the building were
notified to vacate. The formal transfer
of the property for the consideration nam

HOUSES ARE IN DEMAND.
Claimed That Those Looking for
Homes Meet With Difficulty.
Real estate agents assert that there Is
a great demand for houses. Many per
sons are looking for homes, and the
agents are kept busy showing the houses
that are on their lists. It Is said there
will be some difficulty in providing all the
homeseekers with just what they are look
ing for. '
Those who are moving from old homes
to new declare that they encounter diffi
culties in finding suitable houses. It would
seem from the many complaints that are
made that there would be a ready demand
for many new houses. Oct. 1 is the time
usually appointed for the contracts to ex

Expected Here To-day to Root for

off the Game.
The Brunswick team defeated Jackson
ville again yesterday afternoon at the
Bolton stre t grounds in a c'.osely played
and sharply contested game of ball. The
game was played in one hour and forty
five minutes, and at the end of that time
the score stood Brunswick 6 and Jackson
This game was the second of the series
to be played by these teems for a purse of
SI,OOO, and by winning it the management
of the Brunswick aggregation receives
the purse, as the series was the best two
out of three games.
However, this by no means ends the
e ri- s, and the third game will be played
this aftfrnoon as scheduled.
The Jacksonville team does not yet feel
that the Brunswick boys are their super
iors at the national game, and the Jack
sonville managfrmnt are evidently of the
same opinion as ihe’r players and, In
fact, are so confident of lowering the col
ors of their rivals that they have made
a side bet of $250 with the manager of the
Brunswick team on this afternoon’s game.
Tfie game yesterday afternoon was as j
pretty an exhibition of fast, clean base
ball as one would wish to see, and for six
innings both teams were blanked in one
two. three order.
The seventh inning proved a lucky one
for Brunswick and five runs were credited
to them in their half. Brunswick score.!
again in the ninth and their run-getiing
was ended. For eight innings the Jack
sonville team scored goose-eggs and up to
the ninth inning only two hits were made
off Wolfe's delivery and only three men
reached first bag. and one of them got as
far as second; but AVolfe was pitching a
second base game and there the Jackson
ville runner remained. In their half of
the ninth Jacksonville managed to get a
man across the plate and saved them
selves from a whitewash.
Holland opened up for Brunswick in the
seventh with a clean single to left garden.
Garrett, who followed Holland, bunted to
third, but Union, in his eagerness to make
a double play, threw wild to second In his
effort to put out Holland, who came to
third on the error, Garrett stealing second
on the next pitched ball. With Holland
on third and Garrett on second and no
outs the Brflnswlck rooters were jubilant.
Kaphan, the next batter, filed out to left.
Philips, who came to the bat next, faced
O’Neill with a determination to do or die,
and very neatly placed a well-timed single
to center field, scoring Holland and Gar
rett and virtually winning the game for
Brunswick. Philips reached third on a
wild throw of Summers. Wolfe got his
base on balls. Hallowell fouled out to
With two men out, two on bases and
two runs already to Brunswick's credit in
this inning, Jim Ballantyne cracked out
a corking two-bagger to right center,
scoring Phillips and Wolfe. This do|ve of
Ballantyne’s hit the center field fence.
Ballantyne scored on a bad throw of
catcher to third. This ended the scoring
for Brunswick in this inning.
Brunswick scored again in the ninth
on a hit by Philips, a sacrifice by Woife
and a wild throw of Middlebrook’s, which
allowed Philips to score.
Jacksonville’s only tally was made In
the ninth. Harrison, the first man up in
his inning, got his base on balls, was
advanced to second by Linton being hit
by a pitched ball, which placed that play
er on first. Conroy singled, but Har
rison in trying to make a tally for his
team was thrown out at the plate on this
hit. With Linton on second and Conroy
on first, O’Neill hit a line drive to right
center which was reached by Kaphan
after a hard run, but the hit was hard
to handle and was an excusable error
for Kaphan, which allowed Linton to
make Jacksonville’s first and only tally.
The next two batters went out in quick
For six innings O’Neill was Invinelble,
but In the seventh he had a bad inning,
which was not his fault, as chances had
been given to retire the side. The pitch
ing of O’Neill was of the gilt-edge order
and should have won any ordinary game;
but Denny Wolfe was a stumbling block
to Capt. O’Neill's men and only three
scattering hits was all the damage the
Jacksonville boys could do to his deliv
Both pitchers did excellent work, with
Wolfe having the better of the argument,
and he was ably backed up by the sup
port his team gave him. O’Neill’s sup
port was also good, with the exception of
the seventh and ninth innings.
Vlllineau, Harper, Garrett and Ballan
tyne put up an infield game that was
hard to beat, and maybe those boys didn’t
cover their ground. Garrett is playing an
excellent game at third, and goes after
everything. Ballantyne put up a pretty
game at short, accepting seven chances.
Bub Harper made another of his famous
one-hand stops, and also a nice catch of
a difficult fly ball. Vlllineau Is a verita
ble stonewall on first base. Kaphan made
a pretty catch in right garden.
Ballantyne led a* the bat, with a double
and single. Holland, Philips and Conroy
also got two hits apiece. Tom Holland
is hitting them nice, and the pitchers
have to put them over for him. Philips
hit in good time, and his single played
an Important factor In winning the game.
Conroy got two of the three hits that
his side made. O’Connor made a pretty
catch of Kaphan’s drive in the second
inning. Harrison plays a nice field, hits
nice, and is always in the game. Hutch
ins and Conroy played nice ball. “Buck”
Hollowell caught a nice game. “Buck"
Is a good one in any position.

Frank Butler is up from Fernandina for
a few days and his friends are glad to
see him again. Frank is captain of the
Fernandina team and he says that his
team is ready to play the Brunswick team
in any diamond for SSOO a aide. Mr. Hlrsch
was called on in regard to this challenge
of Builer’s and he said that his Bruns
wick team was ready and willing to make
a match with Fernandina. provided that
Butler post a forfeit immediately.
It is more than likely that this series of
sl.ooo between Brunswick and Fernandina
will he arranged, and it is to be hoped
that the games will be played in Savan
nah, and if a large crowd is out at the
game to-day, it would, in all probability,
induce the managers of those teams to
pull the games ofT here.
Mr. Hirscb received several telegrams
from Brunswick congratulating him on
winning from Jacksonville and a large
• rowd of Brunswick rooter* will most
likely come up to see the game this after
Chue Hall, alias Joe, the chief rooter of
the Brunswick team, and, according to the
Brunswick boys, the only Americanized
Chinaman in this country, who was v?n
avo Ida hi y detained from coming up to see
the game yesterday, will most likely be on
hand at to-day’s game. He will have
his cowbells, horn and yellow dog, Sou
Joe, with him.
Allen of the Virginia State League will
be here this morning and will pitch for
Jacksonville In this afternoon’s game.
Kaphan will pitch for Brunswick. The

An Architect Coming Monday to
Draw a Preliminary Plan.
Mr. Bradford L. Gilbert, a celebrated
railroad architect of New York, will ar
rive in Savannah Monday, it is expected,
to make a preliminary plan of the union
station. This does not mean that the final
plans may be drawn by Mr. Gilbert, but
it Is possible that such will be the case.
The company may decide, after seeing
Mr. Gilbert’s preliminary plan, to adver

Mr. Gilbert was called South to design
buildings for the Charleston exposition
buildings. The people of that city are
making elaborate preparations for the af

The suspicion that Loeb and Hall are
experienced and expert swindlers, and
that they are wanted In other places for
work similar to that they did here, was
confirmed yesterdauy by a telegram from
the chief of police In Montgomery to Su
perintendent of Police Screven, in which
it is 6tated that the men are wanted In
The telegram did not go into the details
of the job, or jobs, for which they are
wanted, but is so worded as to lead to the
belief that the game was practically the
same as that worked here. The further
inference from the telegram is that the
men belong to an organized gang of
thieves who have been plying their trade
in the cities of the West and the South,
and that they have their headquarters,
and a fence through which they dispose of
the swag, in St. Paul, Minn.
The keeper of this fence is named Wm.
Cohn, or at least that is the name to
which the gloves stolen from Messrs.
Frank & Cos. were expressed, and as the
same name is mentioned in the telegram
from Montgomery the natural Inference
is that it Is to this man thet all, or the
greater part of the swag has been sent.
The Montgomery authorities ask that
pictures and measurements of the men be
sent them. This will be done to-day, and
like information will also be furnished
the pollcte authorities in Kansas City, New
Orleans, where the men claim to come
from, and St. Paul.
A telegram giving the facts of the case
was sent the police authorities of St.
Paul by Sup*. Screven. It Is quite likeiy
that upon this Information Cohn will be
arrested and his place searched, when
startling developments may be made.
When the shipment of the gloves from
this city was discovered and the men ask
ed about Cohn, they said that he was an
innocent party, though they did not at
tempt to explain the arrangement that
existed between him and them, relative
to the disposition of the goods, or the
recompense that they were to receive
Supt. Screven, through the Express
Company authorities, has stopped the
delivery of the gloves, and they will be
returned to this city probably within a
day or so. Through checking up their
stock, Messrs. Frank & Cos., are enabled
to say just how many gloves were taken,
and by weighing an equal number and
comparing the result with the weight of
the express package as registered in the
express office, they feel certain that all
of their goods are in the one package,
and consequently will be recovered.
There was a rumor about the street yes
terday to the effect that the men had
worked, or tried to work, one of their
schemes In Thomasville, but the report
could not be confirmed. Loeb and Hall
were given a preliminary examination yes
terday morning before Recorder Hartridge.
They talked but little, admitted only such
facts as they could not deny because self
evident, and were generally non-commit
tal. They were remanded to the Superior
Corut on the charge of grand larceny.
Mr. D. Hecht of Messrs. Frank & Cos.
has been summoned to appear before the
Grand Jury Tuesday to give evidence rel
ative to the. case. He says it Is the inten
tion of the firm to push the case to the ut
most limit of the law.
There were ten prisoners before the Re
corder yesterday, but few of the cases
were of interest.
Loeb and Hall, the swindlers, were ex
amined. but no new facts brought out,
and they were remanded to the City Court
on charges of simple larceny.
March Mcßride, the colored man who
became obstreperous in the Central depot
and was Bent tn by Officer Connelly after
a fight, was remanded to the City Court on
a charge of carrying concealed weapons.
The police were kept busy yesterday

“Hnnger Is the Rest Sauce,”
Yet some people are never hungry. What
ever they eat has to be "forced down.”
There Is, of course, something wrong
with these people. By taking Hood's Sar

food nourishes them. If you find your
appetite falling, just try a bottle of

There was a large crow-d at Barbee &
Bandy’s pavilion at Isle of Hope last
night. The ocean breezes, for a wonder,
failed to make their appearances, but the
crowd managed to enjoy itself just the
same. The guessing contest was won by
Mrs. R. J. Warrick, whose estimate of
32* as the number on the pavilion during
the night, was nearest the mark. The
prize was a five-pound box of candy, offer
