The gold medal offered by Mr. Charles
Marks, to be presented to the winner of
an individual match at the coming rifle
contests of the state troops, was yester
day formally accepted by Col. George T.
Cann, state inspector general of rifle prac
Col. Cann announced also the conditions
under which the match will be shot. The
entries will be limited to those five mem
bers of the regimental and company teams
who attain the highest record at known
distances in these matches. The known
distances are 200, 300, 500 and 600 yards.
The contest for the medal will also be at
known distances—those at which the com
pany and regimental teams will shoot.
The medal will be a handsome one and
the fact that there will be an opportunity
for marksmanship to count for the indiv
taal marksman, as well as for the team of
which he is a member, will doubtless ad l
an interest to the contests they would not
otherwise have possessed.
From all over the state come encourag
ing evidences of the interest which the
various military commands are taking in
the events of Sept. 3 and 4. The newspa
pers are giving space freely to the enter
prise and commend it as one of the most
valuable and efficient methods of training
that the state troops could find any
The contests will be known officially as
“Trie Second Annual Carbine and Rifle
Competi ion for Georgia State Troops,”
the first having been held at the Avondale
range several years ago.
Col. Cann has received assurances that
they will enter teams from nine com
panies outside the city, and from eleven
of those located in Savannah. While he
has not been notified officially of this in
tention on the part of the company com
manders the assurances he his
are of such a character as to warrant him
in the conviction that twenty or more
teams will be en ered.
For the regimental match teams will be
entered from the First and Fourth Infan
try and the First Cavalry, while to these
certain entries there are strong proba
bilities that teams from the Second and
Fifth Infantry will be added. Altogether
the prospects for the contests at once are
interesting to the spectators, and valuable
in their results are exceedingly bright.
The Savannah companies are practic
ing steadily at the butts, as well for the
purpose of having their officers, and men
qualify as sharpshooters and marksmen
in the state service, as of preparing for
the matches of September. Not an aft
ernoon passes but there are representa
tives of two or three of the companies
at the range, and on Saturday afternoons
the number usual on week days is per
From other cities and towns through
out the state come reports that their mil
itary representatives are practicing to
the same end, with the fixed determination
to give a good account of themselves
when they fight for the De Soto cup, and
the DeVlenne trophy next month. The
offer of the medal for the individual match
will doubtless fire the ardor of individual
marksmen of the various commands, in
spiring them with a personal interest they
might otherwise fail to feel.

The second member of the Fireman,
the little paper published by the men at
the headquarters of the Savannah fire
department, mad* its appearance yester
day. The number is got up in good
style and is full of things of interest to
the firemen and their friends. One beauty

cost anything to subscribe to it. All
that is necessary is to send in a name

Intelligent Treatment Needed.
Editor Morning News: A convict in
one of the Georgia camps, having come
to the same conclusion that so many of
us have done, namely, that “he would
not work,” was taken in hand by the
keeper; a successions of floggings proved
ineffectual, the last on© being so severe
that it needed no repetition—the day
following the man died. Whether he was
whipped to his death, or whether he was
removed as superfluous, by a higher
power, is not yet decided, and probably
will not be by any human tribunal. But
the “a priori” reasoner must conclude
that a stigma rests upon the and
upon the community in which 6uch an
net is possible, the system rather than
the individual being at fault.
There are numerous methods not open
to the charge of cruelty, which might
be applied with reasonable probability of
success, and which are in successful work
ing elsewhere. A Georgia convict is as
amenable to such treatment as the con
vict of any other state, probably more
so. We have not yet tried persuasion,
deprivation of privilege, and so forth,
and so forth; only blind unreasoning force,
resulting in failure; and In this instance
we have to face a charge of brutality
which, if not proven, is not disproven.
The penalty of all transmission of law
must be visited upon the offender. We
cannot manage negro convicts so that
our New England critics will be satisfied
(and this is not a need), but we can sure
ly carry on the work so that our own
reason and conscience will not condemn
us, and so far we have not attained to

gin cursing their luck and abusing the
management, the loser and everybody
rise who had anything to do with the
hgnt. Many declared it a fake pure and
simple and the majority were inclined to
disbelieve that Pearce had really been
knocked out. Some declared that Pearce
wus a quitter, while others held to the
view that it was a plain case of bunco.
The general verdict, to put it mildly, was
that it was the most unsatisfactory con
?e*st ever seen in Savannah.
Roth men wtre seen in their dressing
rooms shortly after the fight. Neither ap
lcaied to bo much (he worse for his ex
perience. Corcoran had a slight cut in
the forehead and his na urally ruddy sk n
was pretty well reddened about he chest,
but from all appearances he could easily
have gene on for another fight in ten
Pearce did not look a bit like a man
who had been lifted off the floor in a state
of v llapse only fifte n minutes before. He
had a few slight cuts and bruis s. but
nothing in anyway serious. His left arm
was slightly swollen at the wrist and he
said that he hurt it in the second round.
He expre-sed s. me fear that he had brok
en one of the bones of the wiist anl later
went to a drug store to have the arm
dressed. He did not attempt to explain his
deft at, but expressed a willingness to
meet Corcoran again In September when
the wtath r would be cooler.
After leaving the Theater the crowd
gathered in bunches along Bull street and
expressed its feelings. The expressions
were long, pronounced, emphatic, and In
some instances profane. The majority de
clared that they had not been given a
show for their money and that it was the
worst deal of the kind that had ever been
handed out to them in Savannah.
As to whether the fight had been ‘‘fix
ed’* or whether Pearce simply lacked the
nerve to stand up to Corcoran opinions
differed. Some of the regular sports even,
declared thm they had been worked for
suckers, and it was pointed out as sig
nificant that a small coterie among the
sporting element, who had devoted much
time to singing the praises of Pearce, had
been exceedingly eager to post bets on
Corcoran during the twenty-four hours
preceding the fight.
Pearce had a good record as a prize
fighter, and has bested several good men
in his time. The reports of his prowess
which freely circulated here, were
not without foundation. His friends claim
that he trained down too quickly, taking
off seventeen pounds in a comparatively
short time, and this, with the severe heat
which has prevailed since his arrival here
•and from which he has suffered greatly,
left him In no shape for fighting. It is
said that tips were received here by some
of the sporting men from acquaintances
in Louisville during the last few days that
Pearce, who had previously won a num
ber of fights, had recently gone to pieces,
and that a man in Corcoran’s condition
could do him up easily. This may pos
sibly explain the fiasco of last night.
Whether the large-sized disgust with re
gard to prize-fighting will militate against
future events of this kind remains to be
seen. Australian Tommy Williams of
Louisville, who has quite a record as a
prize-fighter, telegraphed a challenge last
night to meet the winner on practically
the same conditions as the fight of last
night. This fight will probably be ar
ranged. Williams gave Corcoran the
hardest fight of his life in Atlanta some
months ago, being put out in the ninth
round by a swinging blow. Both men
were groggy, and the result w T as consid
ered something of an accident. ‘‘Myste
rious Billy” Smith is said to have made
his reputation by licking Williams, so
that he would seem to be of some note
in the pugilistic world.
