SOUTH GEORGIA TO HAVE VICTORY THROUGH CITIZENS CLUB nKrunmi rkcoriikr myrick at SOITH SIDE MEETING. >o o*** Cnu Remember, He Said, When South Georgia Man Occu pied tinbematerial Chair—Entliim. rustic Gathering at Club Meeting l.nut Sight-J. Robert Creumer Said Display Jan. IJ Will Be Some thing Unique. The time is coming when South Georgia, so long slumbering in the po litical Held, will gather around the Citizen Club of Savannah and march on to victory.” Recorder Shelby Myrick made this declaration in a speech before the South Side Administration Club last r.ight. It was not thrown haphazard into his remarks, but came after a re view of the works of the Savannah political organization during its sev eral terms in power. Recorder Myrick began his speech by stating he was especially pleased to talk to the South Side, as the first po litical speech he had ever made was in the South Side. He paid a tribute to the South Side Club, recounting the many benefits that had come to the section through its good offices. He referred to every year in which the Citizens Club had controlled the ad ministration as a step forward. The present "ring,” he said, "if it may properly be called a ring, has certainly been absolutely honest and econom ical." Lessons Are Spreading. The Citizens Club taught certain lessons, which are rapidly spreading, he said. He dwelt upon the fact that the faction pulls together no matter what internal differences may exist. That is the secret of its success, he said, and the lesson is rapidly spread ing. He then referred to the time when South Georgia should rally around the political standard of the Citizens Club, and said South Georgians had so long allowed the ring in Atlanta and North Georgia to control affairs, that no one could remember when a South Geor gia man occupied the gubernatorial chair. South Georgia, he said, had been long looking for someone or some par ty to gather around. The time has now come for the section to gather around the dominant Savannah party, he said, and then South Georgia will control state politics, as the Citizens Club now dominates Savannah. Thirty New Members. The meeting of the club was a large and encouraging one. Alderman John F. Glatigny, though he called at the hall before the meeting, was called to order, was forced to leave before time for the meeting. Mr. John F. Free man, t'he vice president, presided. The applications of thirty new mem bers were received and accepted. Reso lutions on the improvements that the South Side will fight for daring the coming year, were adopted. The open ing of Thirty-fifth street, the paving of Thirty-first from West Broad to the Ogeechee road, the extension of the water mains and the pTSclng of a water trough at Bull and Best streets, were all advocated. Col. John Heery. who has recently moved to Savannah, was the second speaker. Col. Heery, though reared in Savannah, has been a resident of Tatt nall county for a number of years. He was a member of the Legislature from that county. He recently moved back to Savannah to engage In the lumber business. He spoke for some time upon the wonderful development of the city during the last few years. It is more apparent, he said, to one who had been away than to one who had stayed here during the improvements. He declared the city had progressed more during the last eight years tharti In the forty years before that time. Parade On Jan. 9. Mr. .T. T. Abrahams, one of the new members; Mr. William Davidson, an old South Sider; Mr. W. H. Wade, who advocated the closing of the Bilbo ca nal and the existence of a home fire insurance company; Mr. J. P. Figg, and Mr. T. C. Dickson, all spoke. Mr. J. Robert Creamer, the chair man of the committee having In charge the parade of the South Side on the night of the grand rally at the theater, made a partial report. He said the committee had met and formulated plans, but details were, of course, held for the present. He insisted, however, that the South Side would not only h-ave the largest number of men in line, but would have the most novel and artistic display of floats. Every float, he declared, will represent an issue. He promised something unique, and urged all South Siders to turn out. He said he expect ed at lenst 1,000 men In line from the South Side. SOLUTION OF THE COTTON PROBLEM. Editor Morning News: If the holders °f the remainder of the crop unsold will hut hold their cotton for ninety days or four months they will rout the hear element to a finish. The major ity of the operators have sold con tracts maturing within this period, and if there be none for sale, will have to cover in at market price, which will naturally tend to elevate sales values. To the needy holder, the hanks will gladly advance a fair ; amount to carry and the erediton hav ing his own interest ut stake will ex tend favors. There Is no use in ad vising the fanner to reduce his acre age the coming year. Horse-sense backed on the experience he is now undergoing will dictate this policy. U’s the furmer’s "cinch” If he will rise to the occasion. Oenorully speak ing. he hits not bought his fertilizer vet—that Is for cotton —and will buy to meet his expected reduction only— | and diversify other crops. The result must be: A greater at- j *■ ntlon to the South's possibilities In ■ stock raising particularly, whlct will doubtless prove a blessing In disguise In the long run, thus providing two ' tush productions In place of one; r ullliig for less labor, which Is fast be* '■omllig art expensive and Independent factor In the "all cotton" production, as heretofore.

The year just ending was much healthier than 1903, the report of Dr. Brunner, the city health officer, will show, it is thought. health J - Stafford, chief clerk In the H^ th u e ? artnient ' said yesterday that theie had been fewer deaths either the nre r than there were during tile preceding year.

In almost 'ery particular the record is a more encouraging one. The full report of Di. Brunner will be awaited with much interest. less aid sought at city dispensary. Report Will Show Surplus Prom Ap propriation for 1004. While no official figures relative to the work of the City Dispensary can be given out before the close of busi ness to-night it can be stated that fewer requests for aid have been made during the year just closed. The money appropriated for the support of the dispensary has not been exhausted. About the same number of colored applicants have been prescribed for during the year, but in the number of whites there was a considerable de crease. Dr. L. D. Strutton, keeper of the dispensary, will submit the report for the year to Mayor Myers about Jan. 5. Approximate figures only are to be had until the report is compiled. It is estimated that about 35,000 prescrip tions have been filled during the year, and 10,000 of these have been for whites. There will be a balance left from the appropriation of about S3OO. The deduction to be made from these figures is that there has been less sickness during the year. The report of Dr. Strutton, he says, will be brief, as the year has passed ■without special incident. It will give the number of prescriptions filled and the expenditures, but will make no recommendaitions of import. Last year there was a small balance and no un paid hills for the first time In years, and that the feat is to be duplicated this year speaks well for the manage ment and the health conditions of the city. marriage'sfall off DURING CLOSING YEAR. Only Five Months of Twelve Show Any lncrfn|. During the last year there has been a bear tendency in the marriage license market. People have seemed inclined to go it alone through life rather than risk the dangers of the marital seas. Of the twelve months, only five show any increase over last year, and in these the gain Is so slight as to not nearly balance the falling off during the other seven months. In 1903 there were 952 marriage licenses granted. This year there was a falling off of 41 and the total reaches only 911. Licenses during the year were granted as follows in each month, the figures for last year preceding those of this year: January, 64, as against 79; February, 85, as against 70; March, 75, as against 70; April, 102; as against 86; June, 92, in each year; July, 73, as against 59; August, 67, as against 68; September, 69, as against 74: October, 93, as against 72; November, 94, as against 84, and December, 79, as against 83. When the marriage license clerk had announced the above result of his com putations the usual query of "Why is this thus?" was asked by those inter ested. All manner of answers were given, depending in their nature as to whether the one answering was him self married or single. The 'bachelors stoutly maintained that It indicated humanity was learn ing the dangers of the marriage seas and was wisely refraining from accept ing them. This they held to be an ex hibition of wonderful sense and sa gacity. The 'benedict, however, main tained that it showed lack of sense, and the increase in lunatics seems to bear out this theory. At any rate the figures are absolute ly reliable, and each Savannahian can decide for himself and herself whether to lay the blame on the diminutive shoulders of the little blind god, on the broad shoulders of the men, or lay the burden on the weaker sex. PRINCIPALS IN SHOOTING AFFRAY WERE ARRESTED. Holmes and Williams Held for Charges Growing Oat of Fight. Charlie Williams and James Holmes, negroes, principals ln the shooting and cutting affray which took place at An derson and East Broad streets on Nov. 22, were arrested by Mounted Patrol man Elvers yesterday and locked up at the police station. In the difficulty James Holmes and his brother were pitted against Wtl liams Williams used his knife with effect on Holmes, but in turn, was shot in the hip with a pistol ln the hands of Holmes. Williams was so badly inlured that he was allowed to remain at his home while under treatment. Holmes went to Dr. Floyd's office, had his wounds dressed and disappeared. Holmes is charged with assault with intent to murder. Williams Is charged with cutting another not In hts own defense. SERIOUS CUTTING AFFRAY BETWEEN NEGRO WOMEN.

The head camp of the Woodmen of the World will convene here in March, and the standing Executive Committee composed of members from Georgia, Florida, Alabama and South Carolina met a local committee at the Screven House last night. The object of the meeting was to begin the preparations for the recep tion of the delegates who will arrive from the four states, three hundred strong. The last convention was held .n Pensacola, Fla., and it is the inten tion of the two committees to make the Savannah convention the most noteworthy in the history of the or der. The Executive Committee is com posed of the following: Gen. Joseph L. Stoppelbein of Charleston, chair man; W. H. Edmonstoii of Rome, C. Dame of Ocala and John Mahon of Mobile. The local committee Is com posed of representatives from the camps In the city, and is as follows: Percy Sugden, W. R. Hewlett, R. W. Farr, W. O. Clarke and W. H. Mur doch . SAVANNAH ENCAMPMENT I. 0. 0. F. ELECTED OFFICERS. Savannah Encampment No. 22, In dependent Order of Odd Fellows, held a meeting last night and elected offi cers for the ensuing year. The instal lation and the election of one trustee and representative to the Grand En campment will take place Jan. 6. The officers-elect are as follows: Chief Patriarch—Andrew Paul, Sr. Senior Warden—J. F. Sunofsky. Junior Warden—Joseph Sehatz. High Priest—C. J. Anderson. Recording Scribe—A. Jasme. Financial Scribe—H. S. Haupt. Treasurer—W. B. Orear. Property Trustee—G. J. Sanders. Organist—Charles Beresford. WITH THE SECRET ORDERS. At a large and enthusiastic meeting of Savannah Eerie, No. 330, Fraternal Order of Eagles, it was decided to hold the installation exercises on the first Friday of the New Year. After the installation exercises the members will have a banquet. Grand Secretary Tyson of the Inde pendent Order of Odd Fellows has re ceived an application for the institu tion of a lodge at Oakwood. This Jodge will probably be Instituted In the next ten days, and will be the first new lodge of 1905. The application is signed 'by nine Odd Fellows residing in Oakwood, but are at present mem bers of other lodges. In the early part of January the Knights of Pythias will add another lodge to their Georgia list. The lodge will be Instituted at Haddock, and will be the first lodge of the order institut ed in the new year. Beginning with Monday, Jan. 1, the lodges of the Knights of Pythias all over the state will begin to elect their grand representatives for the period of one year. The elections will take place after the installation exercises. BY WATeTaND RAIL. Recent appointments with the Louis ville and Nashville of interest to local railway officials are as follows: Traffic Manager Compton elected third vice president, and Mr. George Evans, general manager, elected fourth vice president; Mr. Goodwyn, to be traf fic manager; Mr. Brent to be general freight agent at Louisville; Mr. Boyd to be general freight agent at Knox ville; Mr. Starks to succeed Mr. Evans as general manager. Commencing with sailings for the month of January, the Ocean Steam ship Company will return to Its old way of having steamers for New York leave on Monday, Wednesdays and Friday. During December the experi ment of sailing a vessel on Saturday instead of Friday was tried, but proved unsatisfactory. Engineers have been somewhat startled by the report that Henry M. Flagler proposes to run his Florida railroad to Key West. Upon the au thority of Charles Whiting Baker, ed itor of the Engineering News, it is stated, however, that the scheme Is entirely practicable, and that the cost would not exceed $9,000,000. The pro posed extension, If it is ever built, will be 136 miles long, consisting al most entirely of bridges and fills, con necting the keys or coral reefs which lie between the Florida mainland and Key West. From this point, accord ing to report, Mr. Flagler proposes to operate a swift ocean ferry to Havana, ninety miles away. The Kansas City of the Ocean Steamship Company arrived at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, having made the run from New York ln fifty hours and fifteen minutes. The sched ule time for the trip is sixty hours. Good weather prevailed throughout the passage. Among those aboard were the following: C. Niebel, Mr. C. Boeck, Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Russell, H. Bodge, Miss Nora Martin, Miss Sara Lashway, Mr. and Mrs. William Pe terson and daughter, C. A. Philbrlck, Mollle F. Lydon, Nora R. Greeley, E. A. Bigelow, J. Barablno, W. F. Cook, C. A.

Majority of l)n> Are Rainless anil Tim pern in re Warm. If next month should be anything like its predecessors, as far as weather Is concerned, it should be a delightful month ln Savannah. The Weather Bureau has just issued a summary of January conditions dur iug the last thirty-four years. This indicates fairly warm temperatures, pleasant weather, and slight varia tions from the average month. The following is a summary of the condi tions that prevailed during the pre vious Januarys In Savannah: The average temperature of the month is 51 degrees. The warmest January on record was January, IS9O, with an average of 60 degrees. The coldest was January, 1893, when mer cury averaged 44 degrees. Jam 29. 1879, is the hottest January day that Sa vannah has experienced, mercury on that date soaring to SO degrees. The coldest January day was Jan. 12, 1886. when a temperature of 12 degree's was recorded. Of the thirty-one days In the month 'there are only ten on which .01 of an inch or more of rain fell. Of the oth ers, ten were clear and eleven partly cloudy. The average rainfall for the month is only 3.21 inches. The wettest January was in 1875 when there was a total downpour of 8.84 inches. The driest was ln 1592 when there .was only .30 of an inch of rain during the en tire month. On Jan. 18. 1883, there was a downpour of 3.48 inches of rain. January stands out as a month in which snow has been known to fall in Savannah. The record, extending back to 1884 only, shows that on Jan. 18, 1893, just, one inch of snow fell in this city. The January winds are generally from the northwest, moving with an average velocity of 7.5 miles per hour. The highest January wind on record was a wind of thirty-eight miles from the northwest that blew on Jan. 6. 1899. DRIVER WAS PINED. Abraham Butler, employed to drive a wagon between the railway station and Bull and Broughton streets, where the new National Bank building is go ing up, was fined $5 or ten days when arraigned before the Recorder yester day morning, on the charge of scat tering stone on the pavement. Butler stated that he was employed at the rate of $1 per day to drive the wagon, and that he had not constructed the wagon body and did not know how to keep the stone from falling out.
