An effort will to mad* to organise a

was decided at a meeting of the officers
of the First Battalion held last night at
the Regimental Armory. Nearly all the
officers seemed to enter with alacrity Int
the plan piv.pnwrd by Col. T. 8. Wvlly.
Jr., for the organisation of anew com
pany, and they are sanguine of comptoe
A committee was appointed to consider
the selection of officers for the new com
pany. This committee consist# of Col.
Wylly, Capt. D. V. Ul©-t#on of th© Irish
Ja.iper Greens, Capt. J. T. West of th©
Savannah Cadets. Capt. C. II Ron etna nn
of the German 4'olunteers and ('apt. G.
A. Gordon of the Oglethorpe Light In
fantry- The committee will have a meet
ing this afternoon for a discuxslon of
available timber, and It la believed it will
have It# report In readiness by the next
trusting of the officers of the battalion,
which will to held next Friday night at
the Regimental Armory.
Col. Wylly told lh© officers that he be
• teved there Would not be the slightest
trouble In organising another company
Buch was hla Idea when he prof>o©d to
the Governor in Atlanta la.-a week that
• his to a part of the plan for the re-es
tablishment of the regiment upon the
same footing It occupied before th© pas
sage of he bin making the Bav tnnah \*ol
untecr Guards a battalion of heavy ar
tillery. He learned yesterday by letter
from Atlanta, he said, that a letter had
been received there from h Ravannuh man
by th© Gov**rnor. he Ravannaman ©tir
ing the Governor that If he were allowed
to go on with the work of organising a
n* w company h© could have It complete
within twenty-four hours.
Another |*art of the scheme for th# re
organisation of the rg>m*nt is to admit
three more out-of-town companies Al
ready there are three companies that form
a distinct battalion, the Third, the com
panies being at Waynesboro. Bt.n* .-toro
and lirun-wlck. Mount Vernon. Bwsine
boro and BylvanUi have applied for per
mission to organize companies, and the
Governor. Col. Wylly announc'd to th©
officers, had agreed to allow them to lo
m). When organised, the new companies
will to attached to the F'lrwi Infantry,
and they, with the new on© organised in
Bavannah. will lake the puce of th© four
companies of the Guards that have been
withdrawn from the regiaunt.

It was thought that the companies should

and it will to Interesting to observe Just
what decision with regard to 4hls will

tort a lion for purposes of administration
will to eff#c#*d. Col. Wylly would like
to have the five companies of the battal
