Thunderbolt and oth er places of lesser note. T.he crowds at the resorts would undoubtedly hive been larger hut for the fear that the rain, which poured down so heavily during tha early morning hours, would resume ope rations again The threatening ap;earance of ihr caus-d the early trains for Tybee to go down half loaded, hut this was made up for later in the day. the 2 oVlntk train carrying a very Ivrge crowd. Many people, accustom'd to the regular schedule of the 3:35 train, which haw been off. calculated u|>on this train and so got taft. In the city the rallrmtd and machine shops and factories of every class shut down for the day. giving their employaa the whole day. The commercial people for the most pan gave a half holiday, though In the naval stores ami some oth er leading lines the day was hardly ob served. owing to the press of business at this season and the further fact of Ms being near the first of the month. The office* at the City Kxchmnge and Court House were close*!. So were the hanks, and the Cotton and Hoard of Trade also ceased operations for the day. During the morning, the fact that th;* working people woee ruit working and lhat the retail stores were open gave a lively appearance to HrugN:on street, many selling this opportunity to go shop ping. In the afternoon, however, with most of the retail places closed. Brough ton street looked almost as If It were Sunday. Tybee ws headquarters for th* labor people and there they not only rallied in numbers, but made a very creditahla showing The large crowd waa not only orderly nnd well behaved, hut it was a neatly dressed and well appearing crowd. It waa also a thoroughly good humored crowd. Th* people were out for a good time and they were not worrying them selves m hot it every-day musters. The programme of events, which had be#n arranged for the day. was very suc cessfully carried out There was a large number of entries and the greater num ber of those entered |>arttc|pited In the events. The programme was hr gun at 11 a. m. and continued almost without Inter mission until 7 p m Tha cakewalking, the egg and spoon race, the sack race and the tug of war between the teams from the Central and the Bavannah.

The Central crowd easily pulled their opponents over the line, but It was contended that ehe former had three men more than the rules allowed. On the second contest the Plant System l>eople claimed to have pulled their op ponents aero*# the line without any iltlfl cuky. This left the contest somewhat Inconclusive and as a compromise It was decided lo hold n smoker at an early date at which Ihe members of Ihe oppos ing tenm* will consume the beer and ci gars offered a* prise*.

The committee which had charge of th# award* consisted of 8 W. Thorpe, chair man, W. E. Quarles, J. A. Denson. C. S. Stephenson and B. Dundhy. Apparently the decision* of th* committee met with the approval of the crowd. Mr. W. S. Harris sms chairman of the General Com mittee and exercised a general supervision of Ihe affair. An orchestra furnished music at the pavilion and dancing .was generally Indulged In during Ihe day and until a late hour laat night. A large crowd came up on Ihe 5:40 train and the remainder at 11 p. m The general verdict was that the day had been a very satisfactory' one.
