GETTING UP SUBSCRIPTION
Brunswick Will Have a Good Bail Club
It looks as if Brunswick will have
a good baseball club this season after
all. and the team is about ready to
Several of the members were out
yesterday with, subscription lists, and
the fanatics of Brunswick very liber
ally subscribed; and in short while
quite a neat sum was realized.
The uniforms will arrive in the
course of a few days and the team
will be ready to battle with out of
town clubs. It is understood that
they have already received several
challenges from Jacksonville, Fernan
dina and other nearby cities.
It will probably be the best all
home club that Brunswick has ever
had. We had a very good one last
year, but there were several weak
points about the club, especially that
of catcher, but this year, Jack Bowen,
who has played professional ball, will
he wilh the team, and that important
position will he well looked after.
Alfred and William Crovatt, who are
attending school at Hmory, will be
home shortly and will play with the
team. Both these hoys have been
playing with the college club during
the season and they have shown up
well. With the other local players,
there is no reason Why Brunswick
should not have a club that will well
represent the city.
The club this year will be managed
by B. P. Coleman, who is an old ball
player and who thoroughly under
stands the game.

“JUSTICE” MAKES A REPLY
Takes Offense aat Card Written By
Rev Wyllys Rede.
Editor News: —Commenting on the
article in your issue of yesterday,
by Wyllys Rede, D. D., it is untimely,
uncalled for, and particularly shown
of that grand preorogative that civi
lization bestows upon the poor as well
as the rich. Justice, at a time when
the enlightened world is horrowstric Ir
en over the butchery of men, women
and children in Russia, it is needless
to detail the fiecidishi, feverish in
stincts and lavished in fury by fana
tics', under the garb of religion, I
say there Is no comparison between
the poor hunted victim who is for
tunate enough to save his life by
flight, to the only haven of refuge
-that is available, and the horde that
corailed in Italy by syndicates who
control the railroads and stoaoislii s
to (lump them into the United States.
And largely composed of an element
that Is at war with every form of ac
cepted government. A discriminately
circumstance in form of the Jew is his
unquestioned loyalty to the govern
ment under which he has made his
home. The Jew will accustom himself
to normal conditions under any flag
so long as he Is allowed the privilege
of earning a livelihood. Fanaticism
and religious persecutions is the in
centive to Jewish immigration. A con
gress of the enlightened countries of
she world condemnation of the ruth
less butchery of human beings, will
curtail largely the exodus of the
Israelites into this country.

workd hard to save the boat, but the

from all accounts, the steamer and
the entire cargo was totally destroyed
The Falcon left Brunswick yester

or four o’clock when she reached
Woodbine. Just how tlic fire originat

The Falcon was purchased by Capt.
White about four years ago for Ihe
purpose of running to points on the
Satilla river. The purchase price was
in the neighborhood of $6,000.
Captain White did not return to
