Interesting Qnenllon of U Rained
in Superior Court—Appeal From
Judge Ferrill’a Decision, Admit,
ting to Probate the Nuncupative
Will of Bridget fuleane, Made the
Issue—Dora Smith, the Sole Lega
tee I'ntler the Will, Was One of
the Witnesses to Its Execution and
It Was Contended That She Could
Not Be Both—Continued Lutil Mon
Judge Falligant and a jury were engaged
yesterday In the trial of the case involving
the probate in eolemn form of the nuncu
pative will of Bridget Culcane, or Ander
son. In the Court of Ordinary the will
had been probated and it was on appeal
from the decision of Judge Ferrill, admit
ting the will to probate, that the case had
come before Judge Falligant.
The case involves an estate amounting
in value to about 51,200, which belonged
to an old woman, Bridget Culcane, or, as
she was sometimes called, Anderson, who
died in the early part of the present year.
The old woman lived by herself in a tum
ble-down house in the eastern section of
the city, and died from the effects of the
fright produced by the efforts of a negro
desperado to enter her dwelling through
the window. She never recovered from
this fright and died within a few days fol
lowing the occurrence.
After her death a nuncupative will, that
Is, one not committed to writing, but made
by word of mouth and on her dying bed,
was admitted to probate in common form.
The will directed that the old woman's < s
tate should go, after her death, to Dora
Smith, a woman living In the neighbor
hood, who had been kind to her in life and
watched and nursed her during her last
days on earth. The law re
quires that a nuncupative will
shall be proved by the evidence of
three witnesses and this will was so
proved. One of the witnesses, however,
was also the sole beneficiary, and when
the will was offered for probate In solemn
form in the Court of Ordinary, a caveat
to the application was filed by Agnes
Crotty, the niece and sole heir-at-law of
the dead woman and testatrix. Judge
Ferrill dismissed the caveat and admitted
the will to probate.
The case was appealed to the Superior
Court and It was heard on yesterday.
During the morning session the evidence
for the proponent of the will was con
cluded, and at this stage of the case Col.
P. W. Meldrim. who conducted it for the
eaveatrix, moved the court to direct the
jury to return a verdict, declaring that
Bridget Culcane died In a condition of
This motion was. made on the ground
that the law required three witnesses to
the execution of a nuncupative will and
that but three had been produced, one
of whom was the sole legatee under its
provisions. Col. Meldrim's contention was
that a beneficiary under a will could not
take, if he or she were also one of the
witnesses to Its execution, and that for
this reason the legacy to the proponent
was void. As it was the only legacy the
whole will was void. While the bene
ficiary was a competent witness to prove
the execution of the will, contended Col.
Meldrim. she could not take any legacy
that It bestowed upon her.
In answer to this contention and in op
position to Col. Meldrim's motion. Mr.
W. H. Weiie, appearing for the propon
ent, argued that the section of the code
which prohibited an attesting witness
to the execution of the will, referred only
to subscribing witnesses, those, that is,
who signed the will in the presence of
the testator and each other. As the code
made use of the word "subscribing," it
was evidently meant # to be exclusive of
wills In which there could be no subscrib
ing witnesses from the very nature of
the case, and that, therefore, nuncupa
tive wills were not meant, nor benefi
ciaries under nuncupative wills prevented
from taking their legacies by reason of
the fact that they were also witnesses
to the execution.
The motlcti was argued at both the
morning and nfiernoon session. Col Mel
drim opening and concluding. When the
erd of the arguments was r ached. Judge
Falligant announced that he would over
rule the motion and permit the question
to go to the jury, under Instruction em
bodying h> view of the law.
The Introduction of evidence on behalf
of the eaveairix was then taken up and
continued until the adjournment of court,
In the early evening. At the adjourn
ment Judge Falligant announced that the
case would go over until Monday morn
ing. as jto-day would be consumed by
wepk at chambers and the hearing and
consideration of evidence and arguments
upon a number of oasis that are assign
ed for Ihia morning.
The point raised by Col. Meldrim's mo
tion is one of the most interesting, from
a legal stehdpoint, that has been recently
discussed in the courts of Savannah and
Chatham county. The fact that Judge
Falligant overruled the motion can
scarcely be taken to mean that he disa
grees entirely with Col Meldrim's conten
tion, as he may give In charge to the
jury principles of law virtually alike
those counsel for the eaveatrix has de
clared to be correct. * •
WAS A VALUABLE DOG.
Figured at What He Had Saved, He
Was Worth $.5,000.
The talk at the (-estaurant table had
turned upon dogs. Then one of the party
contributed a story that he had received
from the manager of a factory. It was
about a dog (hat had proved of no little
pecuniary value to the company. In fact,
the. animal was the best paying Invest
ment the concern had ever made. In the
language of the manager, the story was
"Out at our mill we have a dog that Is

TEN SENT TO THE GANG.
Judge Norwood Hold* Weekly Crimi
nal Session of City Court.
Judge Norwood investigated the merits
and demerits of the charges brought by
the solicitor general against sixteen negro
men and women who were arraigned be
fore him in the City Court yesterday
morning. The court decided that ten of
the defendants were guilty of the offenses
with which they were charged and they
were sent to the chalngang for varying
terms. The others were discharged.
The cases were the usual assortment
of petty larcenies and minor assaults' and
were devoid of public interest. The con
victions and sentences to the gang were
fewer than are usual at this weekly
criminal session of the City Court, and
the county force will not receive Its cus
tomary number of recruits. An unnatur
al spasm of virtue seems to have afflicted
the criminal classes of the community
and they have been exceptionally quiet
for the past two or three weeks. It is
rather feared that the calm is but the
proverbial one that precedes the storm,
and that when the tempest doe* break, It
will take the form of a tornado.
DECLARED IT A MISTRIAL.
Jury In Scott Bankruptcy Cases
Never Able to Bench Agreement.
After struggling all night with the prob
lems submitted to them for their consid
eration, the Jurymen in the case of W\ R.
Leaken, trustee of the bankrupt estate
of A. C. Scott, against A. C. Scott and
Dixon, Mitchell & Cos., wandered Into the
Superior Court room yesterday morning
and reported that they had not been able
to reach on agreement.
As the foreman of the Jury further re
ported that there was no present or fu
ture probability of an agreement being
reached. Judge Falligant withdrew one of
the panel and deolared a mistrial. The
case resulted from the effort of the trus
tee to draw into the general fund the ac
counts that had been transferred by Scott
to Dixon, Mitchell A Cos. shortly before
the application for a discharge In bank
ruptcy was filed in the United States Dis
trict Court. The general creditors con
tended that these payments were prefer
ences, and therefore were void.

MR. HOWARD TO LEAGUERS.
The Devotional Work of Chief Im
portance to Members.
A large number of Epworth Leaguers
gathered at Grace Church last night to
hear Mr. W. M. Howard of Balnbridge,
first vice president of the state organi
zation, speal. of the work of the society.
By his position Mr. Howard Is the head
of the devotional work of the society, and
it was to this phase of the work that he
devoted rncst of his time last nitrht,
though the other departments came In for
Mr. Howard was introduced by Mr. R.
J. Davant. He said that iq no department
of church, work was he so wrapped up as
that of the Epworth Leagu\ and exp ain
ed his interest by saying that the League
W'ork reached a class that was not brought
into contact with the regular church, ‘'the
young men and women, who, having left
the Sunday School and hc'ng not affiliated
with the church, go drifting on the tide
of life without compass and without
guide." To such the League In its work,

to rone in the country, and one whore
work ard aim is of the noble3t kind, that
of saving souls."
In discussing tome of the methods of
holding League meetings Mr. Howard
said that whenever he heard of the liter
ary and social mcetirgs receiving more
attention and being better attended than
the devotional meetings, he knew that
the members were net doing the League's
work, but had become a club, “and for

he said, "there ought to he at least one

where the leader takes up all of the
time himself; the primary idea of the

everybody in it take part, and if each of

NEW ROADS IN THE SOUTH.
Statistics That Show the Activity
That Hb* Prevailed.
In its semi-annual review of the rail
road construction in the United States the
Railroad Gazette has some Interesting sta
tistics relative to the activity of this kind
in the South. It calculates that during
the six months ending June 30 last the
following mileage was built in the various
Southern states compared with the first six
months of 1899:
States. 1900. 1899.
Alabama 37.25 14.25
Arkansas 62 83
Florida 55 60.5
Georgia 117.07 48.6
Louisiana 26.7 62
Maryland 7 19
Mississippi 119.5 85
North Carolina 27 30.14
South Carolina 101,86 60.2
Tennessee 53 7
Texas 164.5 25
Virginia 44.4 1.75
West Virginia 45.75 10.5
It will he noted that In several states
the new mileage Is considerably more than
last year, although 1899 wa* noted for
the activity In railroad construction
throughout the South. For Instance,
Georgia has constructed 117 miles this
year, or over twice as much as during
the first half of 1899. Mississippi has near
ly 120 miles to its credit, South Carolina
102 miles, while Texas has constructed
184 H miles, compared with twenty-five
during the first half of 1899. and seventy
three miles more than during the entire
year. Although Virginia built sixty
three and three-quarters miles of tine In
1899, already It has constructed nearly
fifty mile* during the present year. West
Vlrglnta-has a record for more new mile
age this year than during the entire peri
od of 1899.
It will be remembered also that the
price of rails end other material has great
ly advanced within a few months, which
has undoubtedly caused the postponement
of the building of several lines. Yet. In
cplte of these fact*, It will appear that
during the present year a more extensive
mileage will be buiit in the South than
during Its predecessor.

Bnslnea* Man Shocked by What He
Saw In CoiirA-ss l.ane.
"This policy business Is run in the most
open, shameful, audacious and outrageous
way imaginable," remarked a buainess
man yesterday afternoon, who
had, apparently, been quite shock
ed by discoveries he had made.
"Why, do you know, I was passing
through Congress street lane, between
Bull and Drayton streets. Just now, and
I saw a mob of about 150 darkleW congre
gated there. Wondering what was the
matter, I went to see,
"Well, I had heard of policy shops. I
knew there were such things in the city.
In fact, I had reason to believe there was
one In that lane. When 1 saw that crowd
I just decided I would investigate. Walk
ing up to the place from which the crowd
was coming, I glanced In. 'Hello,' I asked,
what's in here?’
“ 'Dis Is de "Original Genuine, salt,"
answered one of the darkles, and 1 saw
that the place was fitted up with all the
appurtenances. There was the board with
the name of the Joint, 'The Only Genuine,'
or 'The Original Genuine,' or something
of the sort, posted up, and beneath It
were a lot of numbers. The place was
a gambling outfit all right enough, and 1
wondered how it could be carried on right
there in the heart of the city.
"Right across the lane there was an
other of (he Joints. I glanced in there,
too. It had the name 'Chatham' posted
up, and business seemed to be brisk with
it, as well os with the 'Genuine.' The
colored population was certainly well rep
resented in the two lay-outs, and there
had evidently been a very interesting
drawing. I didn't hear who had made
winnings or how the day's sport bad gone,
but it was a revelation to me to see how
the thing was worked so openly right in
Congress street lane in the busiest part
of the city. Nobody seemed to think any
thing of my looking in. That was taken
as a matter of course, a thing of such
common occurrence as to make no differ
Probably the business man's surprise
would not ha<’e been shared by hundreds
of persons in the city who are more famil
iar with the policy business and the extent
to which It prevails. He was almply on
his way from work and happened to ob
serve the outpouring from the two shops
after the drawings. Ordinarily, the event
attracts no special attention. It Is pretty
well understood that the darkies who in
vest in tickets congregate to see how their
luck stands to them, and the dissolving
crowds usually excite no comment.
Policy is the darkies' game. It is In
dulged in almost exclusively by their
race, though it Is said the proprietors of
most of the shops are while men. who op
erate the Joints with the assistance of
negro clerks. Drawings usually occur
twice a aay, and those who have Invested
their small change in tickets are often on
hand to see how fortune treats them.
RECRUITS COMING RAPIDLY.
Savannah Famishing Her Qnoln to
Help Out ''Uncle Snm."
The prospect of a war with China
seems to have awakened the war spirit
again if the enlistments that are now be
ing made in the army may be taken as an
index of popular feeling. At the local re
cruiting office the number of enlistments
averages one a day and the applicants are
of a decidedly better stamp than usual,
both physically and socially. Another no
ticeable fact about the applicant* is that
they are by a large majority men who
have seen service with the army raised
during the Spanish-American War. four
fifths of the applicants being men who saw
service with the Volunteer troope.
The governmem, too, seems to desire an
unusual number of recruits, and to the
end of securing them Is establishing re
cruiting offices in many of the small in
terior towns of the state.
In some of the regiments orders have
been received to recruit the compapy
strength te-80. men above the reguar
strength In order, doubtless, to provide
for possible discharges, and keep the reg

The government Is particularly anxious
to recruit for the Hospital Corps, and. to
secure more men, has reduced the age
limit of th's branch of the service from
21 to 35 years, to 18 to 35. This Is one of
the most attractive branches of the ser
