record season extended.
SHARPSHOOTERS AND MARKSMEN
MAY QUALIFY UP TO SEPT. 10.
Col. George T. Conn, Inspector Gen
rrnl of Rifle Practice, Han Recom
mended the Extension of the Sea
son From Aug. ffl to the Dote
Named Above Extension Will
probably He Made in General Or
der* Within a Few Days, but It In
Assured Even No tv—Change Means
Much to Officer* and Men of State
Troops—Regimental and Company
Firing Reports Must Be Made
The record season for rifle practice by
the various commands of the Georgia State
Troops, which, under orders now in
force, would have expired to-morrow, will
be extended until Sept. 19. Col. George
T. Cann, inspector general of rifle prac
tice, has so recommended and the formal
order from the office of the adjutant
general will doubtless be issued within
the next few days.
In his letter to Adjt. Gen. Byrd, making
the recommendation for the extension of
the record season, which, by the way, was
in response to a request on the subject
from Col. Byrd, Col. Cann makes other
and additional recommendations for the
conduct of his department. It is practi
cally assured that these recommendations
will become part of the formal order that
will be issued.
These recommendations embody the fol
lowing provisions: Company firing re
ports must be in the hands of the regi
mental inspectors of rifle practice on or
before Sept. 24. Regimental firing re
ports must be in the office of the in
spector general of rifle practice, at Sa
vannah, on or before Sept. 28. Firing re
ports not filed in accordance with the
above will not be accepted nor published
in the report of the inspector general of
rifle practice nor insignia be issued to offi
cers or men on such defaulting reports.
No officer will delay his own report by
waiting for the report of a subordinate.
It is expected that the order of Col.
Byrd, issued in accordance with the rec
ommendations of the inspector general of
rifle practice, will be published on Mon
day or Tuesday, but at the best and
earliest it will come too late to relieve
ihe minds of those officers and men of
the state forces as to the expiration of
the period when it will be possible for
them to qualify. They will be glad to
learn, therefore, that the Issuance of the
order is an assured fact and that they
will have almost three weeks additional
on the range.
The extension of time will permit many
of the companies to moke firing records
very much better than would have been
possible had the season closed to-morrow.
Every man who fails to go on the range
at all during the year is marked fourth
class In the reports of rifle practice, and
his bad record counts against his com
Almost every man, too. improves in
marksmanship as he continues his efforts,
and it is the best score he makes that
is counted. It is to the advantage of
the company commanders, therefore, to
get every officer and enlisted man under
their command on the range as often as
possible, so that the company record may
be high. The more time they are allow
ed, the greater success in this direction
Is it possible for them to achieve.
The suggestion made by Col. Cann for
Col. Byrd’s consideration, that the gen
eral 1 order on the subject of an extension
of rime for the record season, should em
body a provision that no officer in charge
of rifle practice shall delay filing his re
por; on account of the delay of a subordi
nate, will, if accepted, be of great value.
In the past this practice on the part of
officers has resulted in officers and men
entitled to receive insignia as marksmen
or sharpshooters failing to receive their
badges or buttons, as the consolidated re
port of the superior officer would be held
back because of a junior’s delay and the
reports that had been filed in time with
him reach their Anal destination, the of
fice of the inspector general of rifle prac
tice. too late to be received.
The blame for all of this has fallen, in
the estimation of the m**n who failed to
receive their insignia, upon the inspector
general of ri*e practice, and he doesn't
care for it. If the regimental inspectors
will forward their returns promptly, con
solidating the company reports they have
received and rejecting those they fail to
receive on time, the blame for the failure
of men entitled to receive Insignia in re
ceiving badges or buttons, will fall whore
it belongs, on the shoulders of their com
TATTNALL COUNTY’S FLYERS.
A (luDoll of Fn*t One* Down for the
J. H. Durrence, a popular horsemen of
Tattnall county, arrived in Savannah yes
terday, bringing with him the famous
sprinter. Perry E, and two other runners.
Mr. Durrence will remain here until after
the Labor Day races.
It Is rumored that the Tattnall county
hors men are looking for more races and
have brought two fast ones to catch some
of the Savannah sprint* rs. Mr. Durrence
expressed a willingness yesterday to
match one of his horses against Ben Roy.
If this race can be arranged, Manager
Doyle will have the event take place
The hackers of Kingful have had con
siderable trouble in getting a jockey to
lide the son of Kingston in his race
against Perry E. Bennie Shaw was to
have the mount, but a business engage
ment at Charleston will prevent the
Jockey from being at the park on Labor
day. Kingful from all accounts will have
a first-class jockey in the saddle.
Mr. I>. J. Bowles of Augusta, proprie
tor rf Bowles Driving Park, has secured
the services of George Dennis to ride
Kingful, and the little Jockey will be here
to-day, and at once take charge of the
horse. This race will be the most excit
ing of Manager A. P. Doyle’s card for
next Monday, and a great deal of money
will change hands on the result.

Claim Made in Damage Case Filed
in the City Court.
China Shackelford, as administratrix of
the estate of Edward Shackelford, her
son. tiled a suit for damages against the
Charleston and Savannah Railway Com
pany, in the City Court yesterday. Dam
ages are fixed at SIO,OOO. and circum
stances are alleged which render the
story at once interesting and unusual.
The petition recites that on the night
of Jan. ib, of the present year, young
Shackelford, a boy of 16, accompanied by
two comi aniens. board el one of the
freight trains of the defendant at Rav
cnel Station, in South Carolina, for the
purpose of steal ng a ride to Savannah.
Shackelford and one of the other boys
climbed beneath one of the cars of the
train, perching themselves on the rods
supporting the body\ The third boy se
cured a similar position on the car in
As the train slowed down, the conduc
tor. evidently aware of the location of
the boys on the train, walked down the
track it. until he reached the car
under which Shaeki lford was concealed.
There he paused and peering under the
car, drew- his revolver and fired at Shack
<lf rd, the ball striking the bOy in the
Exhausted by the pain and loss of blood
caused by the wound. Shackelford dropped
from the rods to the track, falling upon
it with his head just under the wheels of
the car. Then the conductor signalled
with his lantern for the train to proceed,
and it moved on, the wheels passing over
the boy’s head and mangling and crushing
It is alleged in the petition that the boy
had no reason to apprehend or believe
that the conductor would use such murder
ous means in ejecting him frem the train,
and therefore no opportunity of guarding
against them. The net of the conductor
is charged to have been wanton ond crim
inal. and the death of Shackelford under
such circumstances, to entitle his estate
to recovery from the railway company, of
which the conductor, at the time of the al
leged assault, was the servant and agent.
The plaintiff is represented by Messrs
Twiggs & Oliver.
FOURTEEN PRISONERS TRIED.
Other nnl Interesting- Ca*en That
Will He Heard To-day.
Fourteen prisoners were before the Re
corder yesterday. They were mostly on
minor charges, however, and were let
down lightly, though the fines collected
amounted to $27.
Sarah Calhoun, for allowing a vicious
dog ai large, by whic’h a child of Ed.
Cook’s was bitten, and also for resisting
the arresting officer, was fined $5.
James Wright, colored, arrested by De
tective Stark on the charge of pawning
the furniture and stealing the clothes of
Richard Bogsdale, was turned over to the
City Court. Mrs. Warner, of No. 310 Tatt
nall street, who was wanted to testify
in his case, refused to receive from the
officer the summons and had, in conse
quence, been placed on the information
docket on the charge of contempt of
court, a charge to which she will be call
ed to answer this morning in the Recor
Another case that is on the informa
tion docket and w-hich also will be heard
this morning is that of J. H. Murken,
who is charged by Mrs. Annie Futch of
No. 4 Farm street wiih annoying, as
saulting and striking her. Mrs. Futch
and the defendant are near neighbors,
but there has been bad feeling between
them for some time and not long ago a
suit for practically the same charge was
tried in the court of Magistrate Jones.
HAMILTON CAN GET A FIGHT.
Corcoran Will Fight the Louisiana
Man Alninnt Any Old Day.
Reddy Hamilton can gtf-t a fight with
Tom Corcoran whenever he comes to Sa
vannah for the purpose. Corcoran said
last night that he was willing to meet
Hamilton whenever he oppeared on the
scene and upon almost any terms.
However, Tom has promised a fight to
Tom Williams, whom he has already de
feated in Atlanta, and if Williams still
wants to fight, the Savannah boy feels
he ought to live up to his agreement. But
he will give Hamilton a chance at him
as soon after the fight with Williams as
possible. If Williams does not want the
fight, why, then, Hamilton is welocme
to the first shot.
It ia Hamilton’s proposition to fight for
all of the gate money, the loser receiving
nothing. Thi9 proposition is altogether
satisfactory to Corcoran and the plan
would suit him better than any other.
Corcoran says there would be no difficulty
in getting up the fight and that if Hamil
ton wants one all he has to do is to buy
a ticket for Savannah and board the
train. He will be given the warmest re
ception in the ring that the Savannah
welterweight keeps in the shop.

FAMOUS OFFICER DEAD.
Lieut. Commander Shear man’* Mem
orable Work ut Samoa.
Boston. Aug. 30.—Lieutenant Comman
der John A. Shearman died yesterday.
Lieutenant Commander Shearman entered
the naval service June 13, 1871. Probably
the most distinguished event of his career
was his heroic conduct during the Sa
moan hurricane on March 16, 1599, whic'h
resulted in wrecking three American
men-of-war, the Trenton, Yandalla and
Nipsic, and three German men-of-war,
and the loss of 146 lives. Shearman was
a lieutenant of the Nipsic.
At the bight of the storm the Nipsic
was beached and was in groat danger of
being pounded to pieces. With the as
sistance of the natives a hawser was made
fast between the Nipsic and a tree on
shore, and thus nearly all the officers and
crew were saved.
