The review of Savannah's huetoes* (or

year was one of the most prosperous in
the city's history. Business was active

lent prices which naval stores command

brought, up to Jutii* last, mode trade In
all lines of merchandising very active. The
wholesale grocery and dry gootki house#

and II Is safe o ay that they srreatly
wldrnrel ihear spheres of influence. All
of the railroads entering the city showed

In the country, ami consequently the
country nicer hunt a were good customers
of (he city'# wholesale house*. There
was therefore a noticeable increase in
the volume of freight*. That I* on# of
the reasons why the earning* of the rail
roads showed up wo well.
The increase In railroad traffic, and In
the volume of business, offered additional
opportunities for labor, and consequently
throughout the year there were very
few Idle people, except those who wished
to lie Idle. There was pieniy of work al
good wage*, and as a result the retail
merchant* were well satisfied with the
vwr'a bud new* in their respective linos.
When the demon*l for labor t* strong they
are bound to prosper.
There was, throughout the year, marked
activity In real estate. There was a
willingness to pay fair price* for build

The eenana will show that her popula

Still, |t is about the average of American

THE PI.AGI'B SCARE.
There have been reports of the finding
of plague cases In London, but Investi
gation has shown that they were without
foundation. The health authorities of that
city do not appear to be In the least
alarmed about the disease. They hvlteve
they will be able to keep It from getting
a foothold there. They state that they
have taken every reasonable precaution
The flrat of the known case* In Glasgow
was discovered a* far back a* last June,
It seems that n woman, who was living
alone In a poor neighborhood of the city,
died and her body was not discovered for
a week or more. There were rats In the
house, and the theory Is that they carried
the Infection ahout.
A woman named Dixon, who was em
ployed to clnan the house, was taken 111
and carried to the hospital. Two of her
frlfod* who visited her were stricken with
Illness and died. Over one of them a wake
wa* held, and those who were present
carried the Infection to a number of local
ities. There arc quite a number of sus
plelous cases In Glasgow—a hundred or
more—but tha health officers feel confi
dent that they have the disease under
No cases of sickness suggesting the
plague have been found on the City of
Rome or tha State of Nebraska, two
steamers which recently arrived In New
Y'ork harbor from a point on the Clyde,
near Olasgow. A sufficient length of time
has elapsed since they left their Clyde
anchorage for the disease to develop If
there were any germs of It present.
There Is no a pprehenston on the part
of the health officials of New Y’ork that
the disease will reach that city. Every
precaution Is being taken to prevent It
from getting a lodgment there.
A dispatch from Havana notes that the
yellow fever In that city Is practically con
fined to the ftpantsh colony. Neither the
American* nor lhe native Cubans seem to
be troubled In Ihe least. Another pecu
liarity is that the quarters which are af
fected ore among the beet and most
fashionable In the clly. white Ihe “slums"
are comparatively exempt from Infection
The explanation offered Is that the sani
tary work has been morn thorough In the
“slums” than In the better residence sec
tions; the inspectors have forced ihe clean
ing of tha former, white more leniency has
been shown la the latter.

THE RATIONAL PARTY.
YVhat sort of a flgurs will the National
party—the party which wa* born In Car
negie HalL New York, on Wednesday
cut In tha presidential campaign? There
are some lwmocrats ands number of
Republicans who feel that they cannot

j.r Mr. McKinley. They will be able to
I -ailsfy iheir conaclencts by voting for

Mr Caffery Is a Gold Democrat, but
he Is not In sympathy with the Republican
i policy In reaps, t to th# Philippine* and

of Ih# country who hold th* twine politi

will glvs him a hearty support.
But how many volt a will lie poll? That

Gold Democrats. There were let.Cl votes
east for Utm. If Mr. Caffery geta half as
many be will be fortunate. This year the
only tickets that will attract much at

for Hen. Palmer four year* ago have
about made up their minds to vote either
one or the other of thee* ticket*. Even
the ticket of the Middle-of-the-Road Pop

as that wing of the Populists Is counting

THE (HOKUM-HILL FBt'D.
The bitter fight between Mr. Croker,
the Tammany leader, and ex-Hen* tor HIM.
Is Interesting New York politicians great
ly. In faut. It 1* Interesting th* whole
country, because the Democrats entertain
a hope of carrying New York for Mr.
Bryan. Their hope Is. of course, baaed
largely on securing harmony in the ranks
of the Democracy of that state.
On I-abor Day Mr. Hill made a speech
at Troy. N. Y . In which he drew n pic
ture of commercialism and hoesism In
politics, which attracted general atten
tion. It was a very skilful effort, and.
although he mentioned no names. It was
understood that he aimed at Mr. Croker.
Whether he dhl or not Mr. Croker thought
he did. and he freely expressed his opin
ion of Mr. Hill. He called him names,
and belittled him In every possible way
Naturally Mr. Croker and Mr. Hill are
further apart than they were a week
ago. und they were so far apart then that
there ssi very little possibility of their
acting together during Ihe present cam
paign for the good of the party.
It Is thought by many that, al
though Mr. Hill Is urging the nomination
of Mr. Coler for Governor, bis real can
didate Is Mayor McGuire of Syracuse.
His aim Is snld to be to bring Mr. Coler
inlo (imminence as a gubernatorial candi
date. only for the purpose of making him
an Independent Candida le for Mayor of
New York next spring. If >lr. Coler
were to become Mayor of New York, be
could, nml no doubt would, put an end
to Mr. Croker’e political power In that
The attitude of Mr. Croker and Mr. Hill
towards each other Is greatly to be re
gretted. because R lessens Ihe chances
of the Democrats for carrying the ssat*
for Mr. Hryan. Mr. Bryan'e Interests
will be sacrificed lr. the struggle between
these two leaders for ascendency.
THE STATE CAMPAIGN.
There is no doubt, of course, as to how
thi elate will vote In the October or the
November election. SHU. It I* Important
for the honor of the Democratic parly
and political Influence of the state that
a full vote should be polled at both elec

to be sent through the state and cam

There are only a few counties In Ihe

No doubt Mr. dußlgnon will pay particu

should Democratic clubs be formrd In

suggestion was accepted As Mr.nusaell
milked out the Idea flashed through hi*
clod that If the man behind him had the
stolen property he would probably try to
aeorete R in the pocket of his front rank
man. Quick as though hr drew his coat
tails about him—only to feel, to hi* hor
ror. something large and smooth and
round already In hi* pocket. While he
whs still wondering wh.it this might mean
for him the detective energetically seised
the hindmost man. exclaiming. "Whai.
you rascal, at It again?" To Mr. Russell
arc! the other man he apologised and
bade them go free. But Mr. Russell, be
fore he had token many steps, reflected
that he could not keep the watch. He
went back to the box office and explain
ed. with a courage on which he nfter
watxl said he rarely experienced greatet
demand*, that though he did not take the
watch be had It. So aaylng. he put his
hand Into his pocket and pulled out—a
Os and Itrsiare.
Ths man who advertised: "We mourn
the loss of our illustrious father, but we
still sell penis at *3.80 and up." represent*
a class of tradesmen who appreciate the
value of advertising, says the New York
Tribune. The latest addition to their
number Is a cltlsen of Alabama, who
utilised an "engagement notice" to call
attention to Ihe fact that he was "the
Inventor of the ehamplop suspender
buckle." This Innovation In the style of
advertising may lead to a radical change
In matrimonial notices, and we may soon
bam through that medium of the en
gagement of "Dr. John Smith, who makes
diseases of the throat a specially, and
never charges a cent until the patlefi* ha*
been cubed." or of "Thomas Rrown/who
ho* been nominated for Ihe office of al
derman. and who promises. If elected, to
remember bis friends." or of "Moses
Cohn, who hae Just received anew line
of hardware at his plac* of business In
Essex etrsat." Death notices also, which
have varied very Utile In atyle for many
yenr. and which at best are cheerless,
might be reformed In 'keeping with the
Idea* of the suspender buckle Inventor
by the Introduction of a dash of business
vivacity. The possibilities In this direc
tion are great, and when the system has
become established It should unquestion
ably be credited to the enterprising ben
edict from Alabama
The Rraveat Man.
Who Is the bravest man In the f’nlted
States, asks the New York Press. If some
one would kindly die and leave £.OOO lo
him it Is possible that he mlghl he dis
covered, though the search would be long
and arduous. This sort of thing was irltd
In England by the Rev Mr. Narcroaa of
Kramllngham. whose will bequeathed (£OO
to the bravest man In the country. Bir
James Matdonnel got Ihe prise for clos-
Ing the gate* of Hougomonl. which won
Ihe battle of Waterloo for the English. •
but he insisted on dividing It with his !
sergeant. John Ora ham. who helped him
