well under way and quite a large num

tels, among them being Messrs. Jor
ges, Southerland and James, of Cincin
nati; Dr. Creighton, Col. Russell and
Dr. Frazer, of St. Louis, and Mr. Mor
gan, of Jacksonville.
This party has probably broken the
record for sheephead fishing on the
island, and during their short visit
there they have caught over a hundred
pounds of slieephead.
Manager Jacobi, who was in the
city yesterday, says fish are bitting
fine on the island this year. He
expects a large season and says by the
first of June his hotel will probably
be tilled with guests.
BRUNSWICK, GA., THURSDAY MORNiNG, MAY 7, 1903.
SEASON HAS BEEN THE LARGEST
IN THE HISTORY OF THE
THEY DID A BIG BUSINESS
Manager Abrams Says More Oysters
Have Been Shipped This Year
By His Company Than in
Any Previous One.
The Ailten Canning Company yes
terday closed down their factory, af
ter one of the most successful sea
sons in tile history of the factory.
J. B. Abrams, the general manager,
was seen by a News reporter yester
day and when asked about the busi
ness of the factory during the oyster
season, he said that they had, since
they first opened, -had all the business
that the factory was able to do, and
have had easy sales for all the oys
ters that could be canned.
When asked how many bushels of
oysters had been canned during the
season Mr. Abrams said it was im
possible to give an estimate, but that
they -had canned and shipped more
this year than in any previous one.
The factory, of course, will be shut
down until September, when the oys
ter season opens again.
ALLISON MILL BURNED.
Loaded Cans Were Also Destroyed
Fitzgerald, Ga., May 6—The large
sawmill of the Allison Lumber Com
pany, including the dry kiln and con
siderable lumber, was burned between
11 and *l2 o’clock today. Five cars
loaded with lumber on the sidetracks
r/oi*,;,Jii--o consumed, wnich means a
* r w Vo the A.iahiic and Birm
ingham Railroad Company.
Operations at the mill proper have
been suspended several weeks, hut the
planing mill was running today when
the fire occurred. The fire started in
front of the furnace in the pile of
shavings which are blown from the
planing mill, some 200 feet away, and
which was saved by the heroic ef
forts of the fire department.
The lire spread rapidly, and it is
estimated that in less than three min
utes front the time the blaze was dis
covered the mill and the dry kiln were
wrapped in flames, and too hot to bo
approacued near enough by the fire
men for effective work.
Strang© enough, the lire occurred
when the stand pipe at the water
plant was emptied for the first time in
many months. Notice had been given
and it was well advertised that the
standpipe was temporarily emptied lor
the purpose of being cleaned. This,
however, had little effect, as the fire
company found a good pressure soon
after connection was made and the
tire pressue pumps at the station did
very fine work.
The property of the Allison Lumber
Company was placed in the iiands of
a receiver November 17th, last, and
had just been surrendered try Re
ceiver J. E. Mercer to Trustee in
Bankruptcy Lon Dickey. The loss
amounts to about SIO,OOO, and as the
property was uninsured, will he borne
by tile creditors of the Allison Lum
ber Company. There is about $lO,-
000 of other properly of the estate that
will be sold by the trustee aud applied
to the debts of the firm.

Cotton and corn seeding are under
good headway in the northern section.
In the middle section, cotton planting
is being rushed, and is practically
completed in the southern counties,
where cultivation has begun. The
general condition of cotton is unsatis

necessitating much replanting lover
Wiarmpth is badly for cotton
and corn. The latter is being injured
by worms in many sections. Wheat
and oats have failed materially within
the past two weeks, caused by the
Hessian fly and rust, so that the pros

San Francisco to Give Him a Rcyal
San Francisco, Cal.. May —San
Francisco is making the most elab

and entertainment of President Roose

some respects will resemble that car
ried out at the time of the late Pres

however, came to attend the launch

event was necessarily the chief fea
ture of the program. With the visit
of President Roosevelt the case is
different and the entire time of his
stay in the city will be given over to
features of entertainemnt. From the
preparations now in progress it is
safe to assert that the city will be
illuminated as never before. Great
arches of artistic design will span the
chief thoroughfare of the business
district and the streets everywhere
will be strung with varie-colored

Roosevelt because of his antitrust
A careful canvass has just been

Bryan may not be able to dict.alo
the next democratic nomination, and
the combination has decided to finance
a Cleveland boom.
Judge Parker lias been used merely
as a “chair warmer” for Cleveland,
Morgan’s candidate for president. Hu

the news they have just received from
