THAT IS THE ROSTER OF THE
Turner Hall Filled to Overflowing-
Ringing Speeches by Members—
The Greatest Enthusiasm Prevails
and the Members Are Prepared to
Meet All Opposition at the Mass
Meeting To-night, and Will Be Out
When President Osborne called the meet
ing of the Citizens’ Club to order at 8:30
l ist night, fully 1,000 members managed to
squeeze into the crowded hall. It was a close
sultry evening, but it was not warm enough
to drive any one from the meeting until the
close of the business, when the members
from each of the four districts held separate
A MEMBERSHIP OF 2,111.
After the minutes of the previous meeting
had been read, and approved, bv Secretary
pro tern. C. A. Lnmotte, 43 applications for
membership were received and accepted Die
president stated that this swelled the mem
bership to 2,111, which announcement was
received with cheers, followed by laughter
at the rema'-k of the president that, according
to the Morning News, there is “not a good
man in the crowd.’’
The crowd was so large that a member,
wanted to know how many were present, but
he seemed to recognize the difficulty of the
undertaking, and joined in the general cheer
ing when the chair announced that “there '
are a great many more present than Tammany
has oi; iL roll.” ■
The chair defined the boundaries oi the
four districts and the squares in which the
mass meetings are to be held to-night, and 1
urged an early attendance upon the meetings.
Messrs. T. D. Rockwell, A. N. Manucy and
Dr. Louis Falligant addressed the club.
Messrs. Rockwell and Manuey’s remarks
were stirring appeals to the members to turn |
cut early and enforce their rights and to per- j
mit no amount of blaster or intimidation to
prevent their dischaige of duty.
Dr. Falligant’s remarks were principally di- 1
r rted against the speakers at the meeting of
tr. * .iger and its tail at the meeting at > iatholic
1. ary hall, last Friday night, and was well !

ACe.di to the speeches and the speakers i '
a; tire meet.ng of the Tiger and the 150 < flub. ;
Dr. Falligant pad his attention to each ol
their speakers. The following are extracts
from the doctor’s remarks:
“Alter Gen. McGlasiian came my young
friend, Walter C. Hartridge, who is really a
nice young fellow—(I am not joking!)—but
when he came to compare the personnel of !
citizens in the different clubs he slipped up
badly. My advice to him is to‘beware of the
day when the foeman shall meet him in battle
array ’ In politics Walter is merely a little
babbling brook—fresh like its waters, innocent
in its simplicity, and hasn't got quite through
sucking his political nursing bottle. I might
paraphrase his speech in these few words;
'Look on this picture (the Tammany Club),
and then on that (the Citizens’ Club). Now
you see it and now you don’t,’ and then In
•‘And then followed the roseate-tongued
orator of the National League, P. J. O’Con
nor. ‘Tiie Citizen’s Club,’ said he, ‘is a
Russell Club, whilst Tammany and the
Tiger’s tail are anti-Russell!’ What splendid
eloquence! Cicefo in his greatest effort
never originated a thought like that. De
mosthenes sinks into insignificance beside
the lurid flame of O’Connor’s genius!
Patrick Henry when he blazed the way of
original and patriotic inspiration, never
dreamed that the future had instore for
American worship a star in the east like iny
friend O'Connor. Closing his utterance.,
with that glorious evolution of divine con
ception ‘When it comes to throwing oft
» the bridge let them learn that we can thiow
well as them.’ Holy of holies! Murray of
Murrays os English Grammar, hide your
heads in everlasting shame in the presence of
O’Connor's powers of expression! Gram
mar is nowhere As the clown said, bring
jn anoth r horse.” * * *
“ 1 don’t believe with my friend George
Owens in washing democratic dirty linen in
public, nor do I believe tint all the dirty
lin'n was gathered from or by Russell. Jn
d ed I happen to know .to the contrary.
And further, if Mr Owens will take the
trouble to read the testimony in theGuerard-1
Russell controversy, which is open to his i
s "he will find that his comments I
Ion ‘that matter are based on ignorance of :
the facts. If Mr. Owens is like his father:
(whom 1 have no hesitation in declaring one
pj tflp must considerate and well-balanced

amine that record and rptpact his hasty and.
ungenerous comments on the committee of

MR. MF.LDRIM AS DR. FALLIGANT SEES HIM.
“And last, but not least, appears my elo
quent friend, Peter W. Meldrim, formerly ot
the abused Second district, but now of Bull
street. Peter thinks his side ought to have
all the o.iices, and th t when ‘taxes’ (1 quote
b s ianguags) ‘eat i.u.j the poor man’s wages’
the people ought to come to him and his side
for divine guidance! How many watered
railroad bonds and watered railroad stocks,
lihving no foundation in capital honestly in
vested, have Peter's associates in the so-called
better element floated on'a green and gullible
public, and cut down the time and wages of
their employes to save money enough by the
skinning process to pay dividends on these
worthless securities so that they could unload
them on the out-ide lambs until this floating
process was accomplished? Where are the
major's tears for the widows made penniless,
the orphans made homeless, the charitable
institutions wrecked and desolated by Com
mercial sharks, members of the better ele
ments, so-called, who, having accomplished
their wiecking processes, dash back again
/ into the ocean of plunder, leaving their
bleeding victims dying along the shores and
breakers of human rapacity?
The little petty offices to which Maj. Mel
drim refers are but flies in the air, but
specks on the wall beside the black desola
tion that sweeps everywhere in the wake of
those vultures of commerce—the floaters of
watered stocks and wreckers of human trust
fulness Peter should walk back again along
the pathway trod in his youth, and see the
suffering faces of laboring men and women
whose sorrows lie at the door of the water
ing stock members ‘of the better element ’
It might recad the manly impulses of his
childish ambition when his playmates,
though poor, had hearts as honest as his! It
might re-awaken memories of olden times
and dress unemployed labor’s gaunt skeleton
at least in the covering of just appreciation
instead of sneering allusion.”
A Hint (o (Ik* Street Force.
It is reported that Supt. Fitzgerald, of the
street and lane department,has ordered all the
c : ty hands under him to go in the First dis
trict this afternoon to vote the Tammany
ticket under penalty of discharge.
The Daily Daspatch k-nt out a reporter to
try and find Fitzgerald, to secure a denial,
but he was not to be found. Some oi the
employes admitted that they had -been in
formed by him that they would be given a
half hour to attend the meeting. As the
street force is not required to be on duty as
late as 7 o’clock p. m., jhe fact that Fitzger
ald has sought to influence the men under
his employ is a natural inference.

AN EARLY MORNING FIRE.
. Hr. Ernest Sebmidt the Victim ol an Incendia
I One of the boldest attempts at incendiar
, ism was brought to light this morning when
. the frame residence of Mr. ErneM Schmidt,
treasurer of the City and Suburban and
Coast Line railroads, was discovered to be
on lire at 8 o’clock this morning. Mr-
Schmidt’s house is on Barnard street, three
doors south of Anderson street. Smoke
was seen issuing from the attic on the east
ern side of the building in volum s. An
alarm was turned in from box 65, at Duffy
And Jefferson streets. The de; artment re
sponded promptly and in a few minutes
fter their arrival the boys of No. 5 had on
ON FIRE IN TWO PLACES.
It was with the greatest difficulty that the
firemen got into the house, as the smoke
was almost stifling, and Foreman McFarland
and his men deserve unstinted praise for the
fight they made against the situation. When
the firemen had gained an entrance and after
two copious streams of water had been
playing on the fire, which was located in
the bath room, on the western side of the
house, a Daily Dispatch man who arrived
on the scene, made a startling discovery.
On the first floor near the moulding in the
southwestern part of the building there was
a pile of wood briskly burning, the flames
running up against the moulding, having
already started to eat its way through to
the laths beneath the mortar. ’
The blaze was extinguished by several
buckets of water. After the lire‘had been
put out in the bath room an investigation
was made. The result wa. that the con
clusion was reached that the house had
been set on fire in the bath room as well as
in the little room down stairs.
NO CLUE TO THE INCENDIARY.
Ihe house has been unoccupied for the
past two weeks, Mr. Deveau, a carpenter be- <
ing the last tenant. No reason can be ad
vanced as to how the tire originated, but it
is generally believed to have been set on fire
bj. some tramps who have been sleeping In
the house without the knowledge of any
body. Jhe back door which opens into the ■
little room in which the fire was burning in !
the middle of tjie floor, was open, which .
would seem to indicate that, alter starting '
the tire, the parly or parties made their exit 1
through it. * 1
The houro was insured for $2,000, and the i
loss will be about $250, the damags<-beiil)g

Two country constables arrived in the

committed some crime in their county. In
their search they located the negro at work
aboard of the Chat' hoochee. They asked
the wharf authorities for him and he was
called ashore. He came "it the wharf with
out h's hat. One of the constables informed
the hatless darkey that they had come to

the constables were equally as positive that
he was the man wanted. .

Yesterday one of the tigers, name! Nick
Kenny, during a conversation with Aentlc’
man in Neil Gildea’s salo ■’< on Liiughton
street, told Mr. Gildea that f he joinjj Tam
many he could keep his saloon open ■ Sun
Mr. Gildea was seen at Ins place ol busi
ness to-day by a Daily Dispatch man and
asked about the truthfulness of the report.
‘•Well," said he,“oneof the gentlemen who
was in the party said that Tammany would
win and that he intended to cast his vote
with that side, and then 1 said yes, and mine
will go in on top of yours and will not be
cast with Tammany.”
“Mr. Kenny,” continued Mr. Gildea, “spoke
up and said, ‘wlty don’t you join Tammany;
then you could sell beer on Sunday ’ I told
him that I would tell The Daily Dispatch of
his suggestion to me.”
The Daily Dispatch has no hesitancy
about saying that the common people of
Savannah, who know of some ol the un
scrupulous men composing Tammany are
not surprised" at anything that tjiey stoop
to. Tammany have endeavored,* in every
manner imaginable to lick its wa| to favor.
When the mass meetings are ov|r to-night
it is hoped this oath-bound organization,
which has endeavored to control jhe city of
Savannah, will be wiped out of existence.

TO-NIGHT’S MASS MEETINGS PROM-
ISE TO BE LIVELY.
1 The Tickets Which Both Factions
Will Present—Both Sides Confident
—The Greatest Fight to Occur in
the Fourth—Twenty Policemen To
Be On Hand at Troup Square.
Everything is ready for the test of
strength to-night between the Citizens' Club
and Tammany Club and its annex. Both
sides are confident and both are working
like beavers to capture the mass meetings
and secure control of the executive com
mittee for the next two years.
The story of the Morning Unreliable that
the fight is Russell and anti-Russell is false,
like almost everything else published by the
organ that has always fought the interests
of the people of Savannah.
PEOPLE AGAINST SECRECY.
The issue is whether the people shall rule
or whether an oath-bound secret organization
shall control the politics of Chatham county.
If the citizens of Savannah want an era of
corruption overshadowing lhe rule of Boss
Tweed in New York, then they should see
that Tammany wins the fight ; if they want
a clean city and county administration that
will make Savannah a power in the commer
cial world, then they should deal Tammany a
death blow to-night.
THE FOURTH’S FIGHT.
The greatest fight will be in the Fourth
district which Tammany considers its
stronghold. The Tigers, however, will find
that the people are ready to meet and teach
them a lesson they will never forget.
The Tammanyites will also make a fight in

It is stated on good authority that Mayor
. McDonough will have 20 policemen on duty
at Troup square, presumably to coerce the
Citizens people, but they will find that the
Citizens’ Club will not be coerced. Its mem
bers are going to the Fourth for fair play and
• they are going to have it.

requested the fire department to sound the
